1. Fearing backlash from Quebec's far-right, venues cancel Muslim event celebrating hijab
A Muslim community group in Montreal was forced to move an event twice in two days after both venues faced pressure from far-right groups.
For the past two years, the Centre Communautaire Musulman de Montreal (CCMM) has rented an auditorium in an east-end high school, where it has held an annual event that celebrates the decision of girls aged nine to 12 to wear the hijab.
The Commission Scolaire de Montréal — a French-language school board known by its acronym CSDM — had agreed this year to, once again, rent them the auditorium at Louis-Joseph-Papineau High School. The event was to take place Sunday.
But on Thursday, the Journal de Montréal ran a column by Lise Ravary under the headline “Abuse of young girls at the CSDM.” It was critical of the school board's decision to let the Muslim group use the auditorium.
2. Sweden arrests three suspected of preparing an act of terror
Three people suspected of preparing an act of terror were arrested Monday in Stockholm's northern suburbs, with officials saying the case has international links.
Sweden's domestic intelligence agency SAPO says the three were arrested for terror-related activities in several locations in greater Stockholm. SAPO said they had been on the agency's radar for a while.
The agency says several other people have been brought in for questioning.
Intelligence agency spokeswoman Nina Odermalm Schei told Sweden's TT news agency that the case “has international links but we can't say which countries we are talking about.”
Tabloid Aftonbladet said one of the suspects was from Uzbekistan.
"We have no indications right now that this was an assault that was scheduled to happen in the next few days," Odermalm Schei told TT.
3. The Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Students’ Association: What Americans Need to Know
(NB: There are also MSAs on every major Canadian campus)
Recent news reports about the exposure of Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed’s possible ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and the biased–even corrupt–attacks by the so-called “mainstream” media on State Senator Patrick Colbeck for bringing the issue up, should pique the curiosity of every American who has an interest in the security and sanctity of our nation, our rule of law and our culture.
Without delving into the political battle raging in Michigan, I feel compelled to clear the air about one particular Muslim Brotherhood organization of which El-Sayed was not just affiliated, but of which he was a leader: The Muslim Students’ Association (MSA).
Evidently, according to news reports, El-Sayed was a Vice President of his MSA chapter in college. That indicates an early affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood.
This isn’t a “conspiracy theory” as the corrupt, Leftist media in America likes to claim. Much is known about the Muslim Students’ Association and, after reading about it, I think you’ll agree that El-Sayed should be asked to renounce the organization.
A Short History of the Muslim Students’ Association in America
The first chapter of the MSA was founded way back in 1963 at the University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign. It was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that most Americans would not even be remotely aware of for another half century. [...]

6. Kabul bombings: Journalists targeted in blast which killed 26
At least 26 people have been killed in two bombings in the Afghan capital Kabul, including several journalists documenting the scene.
AFP chief photographer in Kabul, Shah Marai, is among the victims.
The first explosion was carried out by an attacker on a motorbike. A second followed about 15 minutes later after a crowd, including several reporters, had gathered at the scene.
The Islamic State group (IS) said it had carried out the attack.
It was one of several fatal incidents on Monday.
BBC reporter Ahmad Shah was also killed in a separate attack in the Khost region.
And in a third attack, 11 children were killed in a suicide bombing intended to target Nato troops in Kandahar province.

7. “What does it take to get shot by the cops?” ISIS-inspired Muslim “begged police to kill him after stabbing his neighbour because the man was wearing a shirt with an American logo”
A self-radicalised Muslim who stabbed his neighbour in an Islamic State-inspired attack claimed to be avenging innocent Iraqis raped and killed by Americans, a Sydney court has been told.
Ihsas Khan was charged with committing a terrorist act and wounding with intent to murder after Wayne Greenhalgh was stabbed multiple times at a Minto reserve in 2016.
The 24-year-old, who had been taking anti-psychotic medication at the time, pleaded not guilty due to mental illness as his Supreme Court trial got underway in Parramatta on Monday.
Prosecutor Peter Neil SC told the jury Khan repeatedly yelled “Allahu Akbar” as he attacked the then-57-year-old without warning on Saturday September 10.
The court heard Khan had originally planned to attack a stranger on September 11 to mark the anniversary of the 2001 al-Qaeda attack on the World Trade Centre in New York.
8. In EU-Wide Poll, Majority Think Migrant Integration “Unsuccessful”, Figure Rises to 73 Per Cent in Sweden
A European Commission poll has found that a strong majority of people in France, Germany, and Sweden believe the integration of migrants has failed in their country.
People in all 28 member states were asked: “Generally speaking, how successful or not is the integration of most immigrants living in [your country].”
Overall, across the open borders bloc, 55 per cent of people said integration it is going badly and 39 per cent said it had been a success, according to the survey commissioned by the European Union’s (EU) unelected executive branch.
In Sweden, the picture was bleak, with just 24 per cent of respondents saying they thought integration was going well, and a shocking 73 per cent saying it has gone badly.
9. ISIS fanatics warn of random killings in chilling poster showing a body lying in a Manchester street with “Islamic State” scrawled in blood on the wall nearly a year after concert atrocity
ISIS fanatics have warned of random killings in a chilling poster showing a body lying in a Manchester street - nearly a year after a deadly concert attack in the city.
The propaganda image shows a darkened street corner in Manchester with the words “Islamic State” scrawled in blood above a corpse on the pavement.
A message accompanying the picture, showing the Little Ancoats Street alleyway in the city's Northern Quarter, warns: “We will fulfill our promises to you”.
It comes just under a year since British-born Salman Abedi killed 22 including children as young as eight when he detonated a suicide bomb at the exit of Manchester Arena.
