Muslim Persecution of Christians: September, 2012

 Published by Gatestone Institute The aftermath of collective punishment for Pakistan’s Christians—the inevitable byproduct of the notorious Rimsha Masih blasphemy case, concerning a Christian girl falsely accused of desecrating a Quran—was more dramatic than the blasphemy case itself.  Indeed, knowing what was in store for them, some Christians even held a symbolic funeral procession, carrying a [...]

Saudi Grand Mufti: Replace Female ID Pictures with Fingerprints

According to a September 27 Masrawy report, because the face (and eyes) of a woman is deemed a great temptation for Muslim men — worthy of covering no less than a woman’s vagina, at least according to one Egyptian cleric — the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah Al Sheikh, recently called for replacing the personal photos of female university students that appear on their ID cards with their fingerprints, as that “would be best.”
