The Crusades Have Finally Started Again, a forwarded email and forum post making the rounds online since 2016, makes a number of claims about foreign countries cracking down on Muslims

Below is the full message, which is circulating on WhatsApp and other social media sites.
The Crusades have finally started as predicted!

The first countries to ban Islam: See how the world is acting fast on the threat posed by Islam and its barbaric Sharia Law!

Japan has always refused Muslims to live permanently in their country and they cannot own any real estate or any type of business, and have banned any worship of Islam. Any Muslim tourist caught spreading the word of Islam will be deported immediately, including all family members!

Fact Check – False message Japan has not banned Islam.

Cuba rejects plans for first mosque!

Fact check – Cuba does not reject mosque.
According to a 2011 Pew Research Center report, there were then 10,000 Muslims in Cuba who constitute 0.1% of the population

The African nation of Angola and several other nations have officially banned Islam!

Fact Check – Its lie, African nation Angola has not banned Islam.
October 18, 2016 BBC published article titled the persistent myth that Islam was banned in Angola
Islam in Angola is a minority religion. Most sources estimate the population at 90,000

Under Angolan law, a religious group needs more than 100,000 members and to be present in 12 of the 18 provinces to gain legal status, giving them the right to construct schools and places of worship. There are only an estimated 90,000 Muslims among Angola's population of about 18 million.

A statement from the Angolan embassy in the US concurred: "The republic of Angola ... it's a country that does not interfere in religion. We have many religions there. It is freedom of religion. We have Catholic, Protestants, Baptists, Muslims and evangelical people."

A record number of Muslims (over 2,000) deported from Norway as a way of fighting crime. Since these Muslim criminals have been deported, crime has dropped by a staggering 72%. Prison Officials are reporting that nearly half of their jail cells are now vacant, Court Rooms nearly empty, Police now  free to attend to other matters, mainly traffic offenses to keep their roads & highways safe & assisting the public in as many ways as  they can!

Fact Check = False Claims Fake Message

Islam in Norway is a minority religion and the second largest religion in Norway after Christianity.
As of 2018, Statistics Norway give a number of 166,861 Muslims living in Norway or 3.15% of total population,
The U.S. government statistics from the CIA registered 121.095 members of Islamic congregations in Norway, roughly 2.3% of the population, according to a 2011 estimation.
The Pew Research Center estimated that 3.7% of Norwegians were Muslim in 2010 and 5.7% in 2016

As per immigration policy of Norway, Norway deports persons who got criminal background or who entered Norway illegally.

There is no ban on Islam in Norway. In 2016, Norway expelled 5,940 non-citizens, a number comparable to those deported from Italy that same year.

In Germany alone, in the last year, there were 81 violent attacks targeting mosques!

Fact Check – Yes, attack happened on Muslims, Muslims did not attack
In this case, now who is terrorist Muslim or groups who attack on minority Muslims?

Attacks on Muslims happen in majority nations, this does not mean that Germany has banned Islam or German government is against Islam.

Austrian police arrested 13 men targeting suspected jihad recruiters!

Fact Check - Austrian police arrest 13 men, the above statement just want to increase the hatred towards Muslims.  What that line wants to say, convey to reader.

A Chinese court sends 22 Muslim Imams to jail for 16 to 20 years for spreading Islamic hatred & have executed 18 Jihadis; China campaigns against Separatism (disallowing Islamist to have their own separate state). Muslim prayers banned in govt buildings & schools in Xinjiang (Western China). Hundreds of Muslim families prepared to leave China for their own safety & return back to their own Middle Eastern countries!

Fact Check - Officially, China declared itself as an atheist country in 1949 and “widespread religious repression” followed
China cracked down on Islam as well as Christianity as it identifies religion as a threat to national security.
In 2014, party officials in the eastern coastal province of Zhejiang’s city of Wenzhou, known for its large Christian population, ordered the removal of hundreds of crosses and demolition of dozens of churches
China is against all religions which includes Islam.

Muslim refugees  beginning to realize that they are not welcome in Christian countries because of their violent ways & the continuing wars in Syria & Iraq whipped up by the hideous IS who are murdering young children & using  mothers & daughters as sex slaves!

British Home Secretary  prepares to introduce 'Anti-Social Behaviour Order' for extremists & strip dual nationals of their Citizenship. Deportation laws also being prepared!

Fact Check – The above lines purpose is just to defame Islam and create fear among the people who are innocent , or who do not understand Islam.

Islam is the second largest religion in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, with results from the United Kingdom 2011 Census giving the UK Muslim population in 2011 as 2,516,000, 4.4% of the total population. The vast majority of Muslims in the United Kingdom live in England: 2,660,116 (5.02% of the population). 76,737 Muslims live in Scotland (1.45%), 45,950 in Wales (1.50%).
London has the greatest population of Muslims in the country. The majority of Muslims in United Kingdom adhere to Sunni Islam while smaller numbers are associated with Shia Islam.

An anti-social behaviour order ASBO is a civil order made in the United Kingdom against a person who had been shown, on the balance of evidence, to have engaged in anti-social behaviour. The orders were introduced by Prime Minister Tony Blair in 1998 and continued in use until repealed by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 on 20 October 2014.

ASBOs were replaced by the civil Injunctions and the Criminal Behaviour Order. They were designed to address behaviour like intimidation, drunkenness, and violence by individuals and families, using civil orders rather than criminal sanctions. The orders restricted behaviour in some way, such as prohibiting a return to a certain area, or shop, or restricting public behaviour such as swearing or drinking alcohol. Many saw the ASBO as connected with young delinquents.

The Czech Republic blatantly refuses Islam in their country, regarding it as evil!

Fact check – False Claim
Muslim population = Czech Republic estimated Muslim population is of 0.2% of the country's population
According to the 2010 census, there are around 3500 Muslims in the Czech Republic (less than 0.1% of country's population), compared to 495 in 1991.
There are two Mosque in Czech Republic.
One in Prague and other is in Brno.
It is estimated that at least 2,000 Czechs have converted to Islam since the end of Communist rule in 1989. Many are women who have married Muslims, but just as many are young males who are “looking to Islam in their search for spirituality,” according to Radio Free Europe.

North Carolina bans Islamic "Sharia Law" in the State, regarding it now as a criminal offence!
Alabama - A new controversial amendment that will ban the recognition of "foreign laws which would include Sharia law"!

Fact Check - Alabama passed amendment banning foreign law, which includes sharia law.
American constitution does not consult Quran, thus hope you understand that there was no need to pass such amendment.

A similar measure in Oklahoma was struck down by an appeals court on the grounds that it was unconstitutional.

Foreign law often does need to be interpreted in U.S. courts.

Thomas Jefferson owned a Quran. Yes, Thomas Jefferson, founding father, author of the Declaration of Independence, and third U.S. president. A 2013 book by Denise A. Spellberg details Jefferson’s role as an advocate to allow Muslims and all religious groups the ability to hold citizenship and public office.

The Polish Defense League issues a warning to Muslims. 16 States have all Introduced Legislation to Ban Sharia Law!

Fact Check - The Polish Defense League issued warnings to Muslims multiple times  — but that’s not necessarily a surprise since the Polish Defense League has been reported to be a far-right, anti-Islamic group.

PLO is not government police force. Its group of people who hate Muslims.

Poland has one of the smallest Muslim populations in Europe, with current estimates between 20,000 and 40,000. The oldest community is of about 3000 Tatars, mostly based in villages in northeast Poland.

Many Muslims in Northern Ireland have announced plans to leave the country to avoid anti-Islamic violence by Irish locals. The announcement comes after an attack on groups of Muslims in the city of Belfast, Groups of Irish locals went berserk & bashed teenage Muslim gangs who were referring to young Irish girls as sluts  & should all be gang raped, according to Islam and ''Sharia Law’’. Even hospital staff were reluctant to treat the battered Muslim Patients; the majority were given the Band-Aid treatment & sent home with staff muttering ''Good Riddance''!

Fake Message –
According to The Economist, "Many of the 4,000 or so Muslims in Northern Ireland are doctors, academics, entrepreneurs, and property developers. Only in the past few years has a poorer group of asylum-seekers from Somalia joined them. They tend to inhabit leafy, cosmopolitan districts in south Belfast, near Queen’s University where many have taught or studied

Dutch MPs call for removal of all mosques in the Netherlands. One of the Members of the Dutch Parliament said: "We want to clean Netherlands of Islam"! Dutch MP Michael DeGraaf spoke on  behalf of the Party for Freedom when he said, "All mosques in the  Netherlands should be shut down. Without Islam, the Netherlands would be a wonderful safe country to live in, as it was before the arrival of Muslim refugees''!

Fact Check – False Claim –
Dutch MPs did not call for the removal of all Mosques.
People got the rights and few people may demand anything like removal of Mosques from nation.

Please do not share and forward this fake message.

The whole message is a fake message, which contains little bit truth, twisted truth, just to create misunderstanding between Muslims and people from other community’s religions
