Kevin Gates speaks on how he became muslim and how he feels about religion
If you peep his video which I posted below, he will remind you sort of the German Islamic version of DMX. They really don’t know if this guy is dead or alive so this might be just more propaganda connecting hip hop to terrorism which has been going on the last few years and ignored by the hip hop press pretty much.
MAINZ, Germany — A former German rapper known as “Deso Dogg” has been declared an international terrorist over alleged ties to ISIS and added to the U.S. terror blacklist.
According to the State Department, 39-year-old Denis Cuspert — who now goes by the name Abu Talha al-Almani — joined the group now known as ISIS in 2012, has pledged allegiance to its leader and appeared in numerous videos on behalf of the terror organization. In the most recent video, which was released in November, Cuspert “appears holding a severed head he claims belongs to a man executed for opposing” ISIS, the State Department said in a statement.
Are we surprised he feels this way? The Middle east and Greater Islamic World has never been known to be a place that women are considered equal in any sense of the word.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan once again waded into controversy on Monday when he told a mostly female audience at a summit on justice for women that women are not equal to men.
“You cannot put women and men on an equal footing,” he said. “It is against nature. They were created differently. Their nature is different. Their constitution is different.”
Erdogan, a devout Muslim, said women’s role in society is clear:
“Our religion has defined a position for women: Motherhood. Some people can understand this, while others can’t,” he said. “You cannot explain this to feminists because they don’t accept the concept of motherhood.”

After the attack, speaking in a clear south London accent, the man named as Adebolajo said: ‘You people will never be safe. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.’
Throughout the frenzied attack the two killers shouted ‘Allah Akbar’ – Arabic for ‘God is great’ – then demanded horrified witnesses film them as they ranted over the crumpled body.
The two black men in their 20s, waited calmly for armed police
to arrive before charging at officers brandishing a rusty revolver, knives and meat cleavers.
When the old pistol was shot towards police it backfired and blew the thumb off one of the men.
Moments later they were cut down in a hail of bullets believed to be fired by a woman marksman. Last night both men were being treated in hospital for their wounds and will face questioning.
ANKARA, Turkey (AP) – Barack Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday the United States “is not and will never be at war with Islam.”
Urging a greater partnership with the Islamic world in an address to the Turkish parliament, Obama called the country an important U.S. ally in many areas, including the fight against terrorism. He devoted much of his speech to urging a greater bond between Americans and Muslims, portraying terrorist groups such as al Qaida as extremists who do not represent the vast majority of Muslims.
“Let me say this as clearly as I can,” Obama said. “The United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical … in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject.”
The U.S. president is trying to mend fences with a Muslim world that felt it had been blamed by America for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Continue reading
WASHINGTON, (AFP) – President-elect plans to give “a major address” in an Islamic capital soon after taking office as he seeks to mend America’s image in the Muslim world, a said.
“I think we’ve got a unique opportunity to reboot America’s image around the world and also in the Muslim world in particular,” Obama said in the interview published late Tuesday on the Tribune’s website.
Obama promised an “unrelenting” desire to “create a relationship ofand partnership in countries and with peoples of good will who want their citizens and ours to prosper together.”
The world “is ready for that message.”
While he described a fresh approach to diplomacy, Obama said his administration would not shrink from the struggle against terrorism, referring to the recent attacks on India’s financial capital. Continue reading

A crack team of cybernauts will form a rapid response internet “war room” to track and respond aggressively to online rumours that Barack Obama is unpatriotic and a Muslim.
As he gears up for his general election fight against John McCain, Mr Obama and his chief advisers are aware of the danger of such rumours, amid polling data showing that a significant number of Americans believe he is a Muslim or are suspicious about his background. Such doubts were a factor in his poor showing with white, blue-collar voters during his primary battle with Hillary Clinton.
In recent days Mr Obama has — unprompted — brought up the subject of the chain e-mails and blog sites making the false claims. Some state that he is a radical Muslim who was sworn in as a US senator on the Koran; others that he sympathises with Palestinian radicals. Many focus on his middle name of Hussein, which was taken from his Kenyan father.
The Vatican has bad news for its flock around the globe; they are no longer the religious majority in the world. Muslims are. Even though they haven’t released hard figures yet the Vatican has confirmed that 19.2% of the planet pay homage to Allah, while only 17.4 % pledge their allegiance to the Pope. “For the first time in history we are no longer at the top: the Muslims have overtaken us,” Monsignor Vittorio Formenti told Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.
The Census was according to figures compiled several years ago. It has been estimated that Catholics number 1.13 billion people throughout the world while it is believed that Muslims were topping in at 1.3 billion. Those numbers are no longer reflective of the reality but hard numbers are not being released.
If all Christians were counted under one banner, the Orthodox, Anglican, Catholic and Protestants then the numbers would swell to 2 billion people on Earth (33%) who call Christ their Savior. While it is noted that Muslims are believed to be outpacing Catholics due to higher birth rates it is also worth noting that Muslim conversion spiked after 9/11 and the War On Terror was implemented. Bush’s Crusade against Islam backfired and resulted in him boosting global membership instead.
