1. Egyptian Cleric: No death penalty for Muslim who kills non-Muslim; Blood of Muslims more important
During a January 7, 2017 address at the Al-Khulafa Al-Rashideen Mosque in Sixth of October City near Cairo, Egyptian cleric Samir Hashish referred to a hadith in Sahih Al-Bukhari that says that Muslims should not be put to death for killing infidels, and he said that some people use this hadith to justify killing non-Muslims. He explained that this is a distortion of the hadith, which actually only means that the death penalty may not be applied in such cases, while other punishments should still be applied. He added that Muslims are not put to death for killing infidels because their blood is worth more. The video was recently posted online.

3. Chicago organizers will not hold a Women’s March in January 2019
Chicago organizers announced in November they will not host the annual Women’s March amid rising controversy about the national organization’s link with Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan following his anti-Semitic comments.
Farrakhan drew criticism last February when he delivered a speech attended by the national organization’s co-chair with comments like “the powerful Jews are my enemy.” Though leaders of the organization condemned his comments a month later, local chapters throughout the country began dissociating from the national group.
Last year, about 300,000 people gathered in Grant Park for the Women’s March, which was about 50,000 more than in 2017. Sara Kurensky, a Women’s March Chicago board member, told the Chicago Tribune in December that marches with such a large turnout can cost more than $150,000, a steep price after already hosting a “March to the Polls” event in October, which 100,000 people attended in Grant Park.
While the cost was a major reason for cancelling the march, Kurensky told the Tribune that the opportunity for the Chicago chapter to separate further from the national organization was a “side benefit.”

5. Amazon removes “offensive” Qur’an doormats at CAIR’s demand
Amazon has moved quickly to protect the delicate sensibilities of Muslims from blasphemy. According to the New York Post, “the Council on American-Islamic Relations complained to Amazon on Thursday about more than a dozen bathroom and outdoor mats, which carried verses and the word Allah in Islamic calligraphy,” and the offensive products were “promptly removed from Amazon on Friday.” And so everyone was happy, except those who are concerned about the increasing threats to the freedom of speech in American society.
Amazon moved swiftly to assure CAIR that it was complying with its demands:
A spokesman for CAIR, Ibrahim Hooper, said the retailer assured him that the links to those products had been removed and that Amazon was conducting an audit of its site. … A spot check by The Post showed that the items CAIR flagged were indeed gone.
CAIR, however, was still not satisfied. Emboldened by Amazon’s ready compliance, CAIR made more demands:
CAIR forwarded other questionable items to Amazon on Friday, including a toilet seat with an image of the Quran as well as a bathroom floor rug and a towel set with an image of the holy book.
Amazon was ready to do anything CAIR asked it to do. An Amazon spokesperson said:
All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action. The products in question are being removed from our store.

7. Lara Kollab, Muslim Doctor, discussed destroying Jewish immune systems while studying medicine
After Canary Mission's original report on Lara Kollab, the Muslim doctor who talked about giving Jews the wrong medicine, went viral, she issued the expected apology, claiming that she had been immature and apologizing for all the pain she had caused.
The issue isn't whether she caused people emotional pain, but that someone trying to be a doctor was discussing poisoning a particular ethnic group with the wrong medicines.
This is a compelling reason to make sure that she never has a position where she's able to work with anything more advanced than frogs.
And, Canary Mission has also dug up more social media from Kollab. And while she's claimed that her hate predated her pursuit of medicine this murderous thought not only dates back to a medical exam, but was part of her notes.
On May 4, 2013, Kollab tweeted: “Studying for my med micro final, came across this. Clearly, I pay attention in class and write very useful notes.”
The tweet featured a handwritten note that read:
“People who support Israel should have their immune cells killed so they can see how it feels to not be able to defend yourself from foreign invaders.”
8. EU puts Iranian intel agency on blacklist over foiled plots
The European Union is putting an Iranian intelligence service and two senior officials on its terror list over suspicions that they have been involved in assassinations and plots to kill opposition activists in Denmark, France and the Netherlands, Danish Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen said Tuesday.
Ministers from the 28-nation bloc's governments "agreed to enact sanctions” at a meeting in Brussels in what Samuelsen said is a “strong signal from the EU that we will not accept such behavior.” A freeze on their funds and assets will take effect on Wednesday once their names are published in the EU's official journal.
Samuelsen said Denmark had worked with France to put the Direction of Internal Security at Iran's Intelligence Ministry and its chief Saeid Hashemi Moghadam on the list, adding that the aim is “to create a resolute and robust European foreign policy; that we respond clearly and significantly when our borders are crossed.”
9. India's lower house passes citizenship bill despite protests
India's lower house of Parliament approved a bill Tuesday that would grant residency and citizenship rights to non-Muslims who entered India illegally, allegedly after fleeing persecution in several neighboring nations, despite protests against the legislation in the populous northeast that brought the region to a near standstill.
Home Minister Rajnath Singh of the ruling Bharitiya Janata Party denied that the Citizenship Amendment bill which he introduced was discriminatory. It would grant rights to Hindus, Jains, Parsi and several other non-Muslim religious groups who migrated illegally from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The bill would provide an exemption to these groups from an Indian law which prohibits naturalization for illegal immigrants.
The initiative is the latest in a BJP campaign led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of general elections set to take place early this year promoting India as a sanctuary for persecuted Hindus globally.
10. Alleged Antifa confession to attack on German populist MP emerges online
Following the brutal attack on populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) MP Frank Magnitz, a far-left extremist Antifa group have allegedly taken credit for the attack in a post on a well-known far-left website.
The post, which was made on the Indymedia platform, credits the brutal attack on Magnitz to the Antifa group “Antifaschistischer Frühling Bremen” who made the post at 6 p.m. local German time on Wednesday.
Only an archive of the post remains online as the link to the original, which still displays on a Google search, says the post has either been deleted or is inaccessible, with the message “you do not have permission to access this page” displayed.
