|Kafir ang tawag sa ating mga Kristiano. At ang tingin nila sa mga Kafir ay mga second-class citizens o mabababang uri ng tao!|
|Kapag sa tingin ng mga Muslim ay "ginagago" sila, isang pamamaraan ito ng paghimok ng isang Jihad.|
|May saysay ang kamatayan kung ang isang Muslim ay namatay bilang isang Mujahideen o lumaban para kay Allah at Muhammad.|
|Kapag tinagurian kang isang kalaban ng Islam ay magiging kalaban ka ni Allah. Alam na kung ano ang kasasapitan ng isang kalaban ni Allah.|
|Kuffar ang tawag nila sa ating mga Kristiano at hindi nga sila papayag na ang mga Kuffar ay mananaig sa mga Muslim. Ganyan ang ipinaglalaban nila sa Mindanao na dapat ay hindi pinamumunuan ng mga Kuffar.|
|Makita niyo sa komento nila kung paano sila gustong pumatay kapag ang kanilang 'Islamic State of Bangsamoro' o ang Mindanao ay hindi mapapasakanila!|
|Ang mga Kristiano ay mga Kuffar, second-class citizens sa mga Islamic States at hindi kapantay ng mga Muslim sa karapatan.|
|Ito ang sinasabi kong Dar al-Harb. Jihad hangga't hindi pasasakop sa Islam ang isang bayan o lugar!|
|Isang pagbubunyi ang kamatayan ng mga kafir o kuffar!|
|Ang Mindanao o ang Bangsamoro ay gustong gawing 'Islamic State' tulad ng kanilang pinakikita sa itaas.|
|Mga second-class citizens ang tingin nila sa mga Pilipinong Kristiano... "ANO ANG GUSTO NIYO MGA KUFAR.. WAR NLANG CIGE.. HNDI KMI UURONG"!|
|Takbir! Kafir! Kufar! Mga kalaban ni Allah!|
|Jihad, Allah is with us!|
|This is why the BANGSAMORO BASIC LAW should NEVER be approved! They want an ISLAMIC STATE in MINDANAO. Yesterday, they asked for an Autonomous Region! Today they ask for Bangsamoro Basic Law. Tomorrow they will ask for an Islamic State and complete independence of Mindanao from the Republic of the Philippines!|

If you’re a Muslim girl, the authorities will systematically turn a blind eye to forced marriages and honor violence and, if you’re a lower-class infidel girl, to “grooming.” If you’re boorish enough to draw attention to such unpleasantness, you’ll be committing a hate crime…

"Muslims often complain of popular "misconceptions" about their religion in the West.Malaysia's FEDERAL COURTS decision only PROVES what CRITICS of ISLAM in the WEST have been saying since the Islamic terrorist attacks in the US in 9-11. If Muslims around the world wish that minority Muslims in other countries are respected, THEY SHOULD KNOW how to RESPECT RELIGIOUS MINORITIES in Islamic States such as Malaysia!
"We took a hard look, however, and found that the most prevalent myths of Islam are the ones held by Muslims and Western apologists. The only glaring exception to this is the misconception that all Muslims are alike (they aren't, of course), but even Muslims often believe this as well, as evidenced by the various contrary factions insisting that they are the true Muslims, while those who disagree with them are either infidels, hijackers, or hypocrites."
Malaysia Church loses battle to use 'Allah' in Catholic newspaper
The Federal Court in Malaysia has ruled that the Catholic Church has no right to use the term “Allah” which means God in the newsweekly Herald.
The decision follows the Church’s five year-long legal battle for the constitutional right to use the phrase.
A five-man bench led by Tan Sri Abdull Hamid Embong unanimously upheld that here had been no procedural unfairness in the Federal Court's earlier decision not to grant leave. He added that the threshold for the review had not been met.
A seven-member panel of federal court judges on June 23, 2014, dismissed the church's application for leave to appeal the Court of Appeal's decision to ban the Herald from using the Arabic word for "God" in its Bahasa language content.
Chief Justice Tun Arifin Zakaria was among the four on the panel who dismissed the church's application, in a 4-3 "skin of our teeth" judgment, as the church's lawyers have called it, that saw three other judges dissenting.
With no more legal avenues to pursue for the right to use the word "Allah" in the Herald, the publication’s editor Rev Father Lawrence Andrew expressed disappointment on Wednesday that the Federal Court's dismissal of the appeal would further undermine the rights of minorities.
"Malay has been the language in the church in Malaya for centuries and I have shown evidence [that Bahasa Malaysia] was already a language of worship for hundreds of years in devotional booklets,” he said. "And during this period, there was no trouble whatsoever, so I don't see an possibility of evoking trouble.”
The word “Allah” is widely used by the Christians in Sabah and Sarawak and the church has argued that the ban of its use in the Herald is a violation of freedom of religion and expression.
Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) politician Gan Peng Sieu, who is also a lawyer and was holding a watching brief on the case for the party, described the Federal Court's decision as a great injustice.
My heartfelt sympathy to all Victims of this curse. May they ALL REST IN PEACE!Islam is the official language of Malaysia, whose population is 61% Muslim, 20% Buddhist, 9% Christian, and 6% Hindu. About half of Christians in the Southeast Asian nation are catholic.
6-7M attend Pope’s Mass at Luneta
Philippine Inquirer: MANILA, Philippines–Pope Francis on Sunday concluded his apostolic visit with a pastoral message in his final Mass attended by an estimated 6 million Filipinos who beat their own record of love for the world’s largest papal gathering: Find your identity as God’s children in the Sto. Niño, and thereby, cherish each child and protect the family.
The Pontiff hailed the Philippines as the “foremost Catholic country” in Asia whose citizens have a vocation to be “missionaries of faith” in the region.
Celebrating his concluding Mass at Manila’s Rizal Park before euphoric Filipinos on the rain-drenched Feast of the Holy Infant, the Pope wove his homily around the symbolic message of the Holy Child.

Quran (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.”
Quran (4:95) – “Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons. Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward.”
Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing…but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”
Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that this verse was narrated at a time that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding merchant caravans for loot.Quran (4:74) – “Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”
Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe, fight in the cause of Allah…”
Quran (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”
Quran (8:39) – “And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah”
Quran (8:57) – “If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember.”
