At the Zakaria Muslim Girls High School, England Is Dying To Islam – Read It And Weep – We Are Next 12-18-17 This is a staggering ‘Farewell to England’ list of Islamic ‘accomplishments’ that shows the insidiousness of Islam and how a nation can be betrayed by its leaders and subverted and taken over by a foreign invader without the use of war. Don’t think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred. … Continue reading England Is Dying To Islam – Read It And Weep – We Are Next
“I am horrified,” the UN secretary-general said. By Sarah Ruiz-Grossman After a video surfaced showing migrants apparently being sold at auction in Libya, people worldwide have been calling for action. Last week, CNN published a report on modern slavery in Libya, featuring a video that reportedly was shot in August and appeared to show a man selling African migrants for farm work. “Big strong boys,” the man said in the video, according to a CNN narrator. “400 … 700 … 800,” he called out the mounting prices.

by WILLIAM KILPATRICK Submission. That’s what the word “Islam” means. Muslims must submit to Allah, and the rest of the world must eventually submit to Islam. Submission does not necessarily require conversion, but it does require that one acknowledge the superiority of Islam, pay the jizya tax, and, in general, keep one’s head down.
