How Hollywood Helped Hitler and The Nazis- by Ben Urwand

Ben Urwand has written a book- The Collaboration: Hollywood's Pact with Hitler-  about how Hollywood, in essence, "collaborated" with the Nazis pre-World War II.  I had no idea.

The Hollywood Reporter discusses the book:
In devastating detail, an excerpt from a controversial new book reveals how the big studios, desperate to protect German business, let Nazis censor scripts, remove credits from Jews, get movies stopped and even force one MGM executive to divorce his Jewish wife.

[snip]

Drawing on a wealth of archival documents in the U.S. and Germany, he reveals the shocking extent to which Hollywood cooperated and collaborated with the Nazis during the decade leading up to World War II to protect its business.

Indeed, "collaboration" (and its German translation, Zusammenarbeit) is a word that appears regularly in the correspondence between studio officials and the Nazis. Although the word is fraught with meaning to modern ears, its everyday use at the time underscored the eagerness of both sides to smooth away their differences to preserve commerce.

The Nazis threatened to exclude American movies -- more than 250 played in Germany after Hitler took power in 1933 -- unless the studios cooperated. Before World War I, the German market had been the world's second largest, and even though it had shrunk during the Great Depression, the studios believed it would bounce back and worried that if they left, they would never be able to return.

Beginning with wholesale changes made to Universal's 1930 release All Quiet on the Western Front, Hollywood regularly ran scripts and finished movies by German officials for approval. When they objected to scenes or dialogue they thought made Germany look bad, criticized the Nazis or dwelled on the mistreatment of Jews, the studios would accommodate them -- and make cuts in the American versions as well as those shown elsewhere in the world.

The rest here. 

Are we doing the same thing with other individuals and special interest groups?

Croissant Fatwa By Syrian Rebel Islamists In Aleppo

And one for the 'stupid fatwa' file:  no croissants for the residents of the Islamist rebel-held section of Aleppo, Syria because they represent the Christian European victory over Muslim imperialism during the Ottoman Empire. Not that there's any truth to that fanciful tale.

A sharia committee in a rebel-held area of Aleppo issued a fatwa deeming croissants ‘haram’ (forbidden in Islamic law) because of their “colonial” significance, pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat reported on Tuesday.
I'm sure those living in Aleppo had no clue that their fight for freedom against Bashar al-Assad's oppression would end up with something even worse.  The ban against croissants isn't the only thing they're having to deal with. Women have already been banned from wearing "immodest" clothing and makeup.

The Free Syrian Army (FSA) is also showing its conservative bent.

A fatwa issued by the Council of the United Judiciary, affiliated with the rebel Free Syrian Army, stipulated a year in jail for anyone not fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.
Out of the frying pan.

No Health Benefits For Half The Employees At Obamacare Call Center

Companies that said they would need to cut workers' hours because of the prohibitive costs of health care if Obamacare was implemented were excoriated for that decision, and calls for boycotts forced many to reconsider.  So it's rather interesting that about half of the 200 or so people being trained to answer questions about Obamacare at a call center opening soon in Concord, California will be part time with no benefits. That's right, those poor individuals who aren't full time will have to pay anywhere from $600 to $1,200 per month if single, and $1,400 to $2,900 if married with a family, for the privilege of making a whopping $15.33 to $18.63 per hour. If a person is lucky enough to get 30 hours a week, you do the math. What's worse, it was understood that all those jobs would be full time, including those who were hired.
"The battle for the call center was over jobs with good working wages and benefits; I never dreamed they would be part-time," said Karen Mitchoff, who has heard from complaining constituents and expressed her "extreme displeasure with how it was handled" to call center supervisors.

One recent hire, who last week learned the job would be part-time, said the new "intermittent" employees feel like they've been used as a political tool, and many now regret applying for the positions.

"What's really ironic is working for a call center and trying to help people get health care, but we can't afford it ourselves," said the worker, who asked for anonymity out of fear of losing the job. The county says it had been telling the public and supervisors all along that some positions would be full-time and some part-time. However, portions of staff reports list all 204 jobs as full-time, and a job posting said the same.

It's the latest controversy involving the call center, one of three created statewide to help citizens enroll in various new health care options under President Obama's Affordable Care Act when it goes live at the start of next year.

Will the liberals be outraged? Nah.

Colorado "Islamic Jihadist" Threatens Mormons and Catholics

An "Islamist jihadist" has threatened Mormons and Catholics in Fort Collins, Colorado, but he's not being considered a terrorist.

“(His behavior is) way out of line for what we consider terrorism,” said Sgt. Paul Wood, who oversees property crimes and is the agency’s terrorism liaison to the Colorado Information Analysis Center. Known as CIAC, the center was established post-9/11 to coordinate efforts to prevent statewide crimes and acts of terrorism.

Fort Collins Police Services isn’t actively searching for the white man who reportedly called himself the Archangel Michael and threatened the demise of Catholics and Mormons in the coming two weeks.

“Right now, we don’t feel there’s any danger to the public,” Wood said Monday morning. But he encouraged people — and religious organizations, especially — to report suspicious behavior to authorities.

The man, who was spotted by police in Steamboat Springs last week wearing a T-shirt wrapped around his head hasn’t been seen in Fort Collins, Wood said, nor did he know the man’s current whereabouts.

Given the information he’s collected, Wood doesn’t believe the man has a criminal background or is wanted for any crimes, which is why police haven’t released his name. And while the man hasn’t made any specific threats — other than to say everyone will soon know who he is — police aren’t ready to write him off.

Fools for not taking it more seriously.

Kashmir's Mufti Caught Enjoying "un-Islamic" Music

Kashmir's Grand Mufti Miyan Bashirudin Ahmed (aka Muulana) demonstrating just how hypocritical some Muslims can be. In a video that has gone viral, the good 'ol Mufti is shown on a houseboat on Dal Lake enjoying music and poetry in mixed company AFTER he issued a fatwa claiming music was "un-Islamic."  The same man who forced the all-girl band Pragaash to disband.

"The doublespeak of the Mufti of Jammu and Kashmir is exposed, on the issue of music being un-Islamic," said Digvijaya Singh, general secretary of India's ruling Congress Party, was reported as saying in The Telegraph on Sunday.

"Singing is not in accordance with Islamic teachings. Society cannot be built or developed by doing un-Islamic acts like singing.” he said.

The fatwa was supported by Darul Uloom Deobandi seminary, one of the world's most influential centers of Islamic jurisprudence.

Germany Still "Obsessed With Jews" - Tuvia Tenenbom

Writer Tuvia Tenenbom, a Jewish American writer, columnist, and artistic director of The Jewish Theatre of New York, talks about his book "I Sleep in Hitler's Room: an american jew visits germany" and how the majority of Germans are still obsessed with the jews. He also discusses the challenges he had in actually getting the book published, in spite of being invited by a publisher to write about the German people.

Three years ago I was contacted by an editor of Rowohlt, one of the biggest book publishers in Germany. She said she loved my articles in the Zeit, the prestigious German newspaper I’ve been writing for, and would like me to come to Germany for a few months, interview people and write about them “in the same style you write for the Zeit.”

It didn’t take long to convince me and soon enough I showed up in Germany.

Unbelievable landscapes, delicious food, shiny museums, celebrated intellectuals, tireless farmers, sleepless artists, blasphemous zealots, faithful atheists and a highly modern society welcomed me. All I had to do was to befriend everybody.

Germany, I sadly found out, was obsessed with Jews. Even those who claimed to like Jews had very strange thoughts about them. I interviewed people from all walks of life.

Che Guevara Works Added To UNESCO Register

Considering the purpose of  UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) is:

"to contribute to peace and security by promoting collaboration among nations through education, science and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, for the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms which are affirmed for the peoples of the world, without distinction of race, sex, language or religion, by the Charter of the United Nations".
it's rather ironic that the organization has added "The Life and Works of Ernesto Che Guevara" to its Memory of the World Register. The same ruthless, vicious Che who killed countless innocent individuals in an effort to establish communism in Latin American countries.

In his own words:

"Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!"
"Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is what our soldiers must become … " 
Charming.

Florida Republican congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen had this to say about the decision:

“This decision is more than an insult to the families of those Cubans who were lined up and summarily executed by Che and his merciless cronies but it also serves as a direct contradiction to the UNESCO ideals of encouraging peace and universal respect for human rights."
She is demanding that the Obama administration stop trying to re-instate funding for UNESCO. $225 million worth. Apparently they currently don't receive any monies from the U.S.

567 documents will be part of the collection, including his "Motorcycle Diary" which was made into a film glorifying his past.

Turkish Sufi Scholar: Immoral For Pregnant Women To Be Seen In Public

More Muslim chauvinism: pregnant women should not be seen in public, so says Omer Tugrul Inancer, a Turkish Sufi Muslim scholar and lawyer who shared that enlightened comment on the state TRT 1 TV channel.

''It is against our civilization to use fanfare to announce a pregnancy. Pregnant women also should not go around in public with those bellies. It's not aesthetic'. 'After seven or eight months, future mothers should only leave the house by car with their husbands to get some fresh air, and only in the evening. Instead we see them all over television. It's unpleasant. This is not realism, it's immorality''. 
A pregnant woman is immoral? Wow.

Naturally, secular Turks  were outraged taking to Twitter and calling for protests.

''Inancer says it is unpleasant to see pregnant women on the street. But isn't it unpleasant hearing the premier say women must have at least three children?'' protested secular nationalist Mehmet Oktay, accusing TRT of having become a mere mouthpiece of the Islamic government. Islamist Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan has more than once called on Turkish women to have at least three children in the name of national growth, berating abortion and cesareans. 

The Grand Mufti came up with a compromise, of sorts.
''Religion does not call for the isolation of women, pregnant or otherwise. Becoming a mother is a gift from God'', he said. ''However, pregnant women should dress carefully, as all women should, and not wear garments that reveal the belly or the lower back''.

Egyptian Blogger Talks About Anti-Jewish Propaganda During Ramadan

Egyptian Muslim blogger Hussein Aboubakr talks about the anti-Semitism that is propagated during Ramadan through media, television programming and mosques.

From the days of my early childhood in Egypt, anti-Semitism was not only a common phenomenon, it has been a national characteristic of my country. From Alexandria to Aswan, in every city and small town along the Nile river, anti-Jewish propaganda can be easily found in mosques, bookstores, on the radio, in newspapers and on TV.
Learning to hate Jews starts in Egypt the first moment you learn about their existence and continues long into adulthood. I am so used to seeing Jews identified by the old traditional Middle Ages stereotype as mean, filthy, greedy dishonest conspirators out to cause global chaos and disharmony among the Egyptian people. Bit by bit I learned all the elements and causes of religious and secular hatred of Jews in Egyptian society. I still recall the time when, as a 13-year-old, I got to experience the broadcast of the Ramadan special: “A Horseless Knight,” a TV series watched widely across Egypt telling the story of the Jewish conspiracy to dominate humanity, as recorded in the “Elder’s Protocols.” The TV series spurred a large growth in sales of countless copies of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in Egypt.
The rest on the Times of Israel.

Update: Gunshot Residue Found On Parents Of Slain Georgia Baby Antonio Santiago

Everyone  was outraged when 13-month-old Antonio Santiago was allegedly shot dead in Brunswick, Georgia by two black teens after an attempted robbery. The mother, Sherry West, claimed that the two black teens, De'Marquise Elkins and Dominique Lang, shot her in the leg and her son in the face after she told them she had no money, but is that really what happened? Some evidence that has recently been released points to the possibility of a totally different, and very troubling, scenario.

First of all, after West blamed two black teens for the murder of her baby boy, her 21-year-old daughter came forward with suspicions that her mother could actually have been the one responsible for the infant's death.

Ashley Glassey told CBS News in March, that her mother has serious mental health issues. These include a diagnosis of bi-polar with accompanying schizophrenic tendencies. West also talked with the media about how she was removed from her mother’s care at the age of 8, because of abuse and neglect in the home. Immediately after the shooting, Glassey said West began asking questions about how long it would take her to collect the insurance money. West’s daughter also told both media and police that her mother made conflicting statements to her, regarding the child’s death - including different stories about who was shot first. West’s inconsistencies and suspicious behavior caused her own daughter to tell police and reporters that she suspected her mother was not telling the truth about how the infant was killed. CBS News reported several days later that police had not followed up with Glassey, nor had they taken her statement. A follow-up call by the press to the police, was never returned.

It has now come to light that both West and the baby's father, Louis Santiago, were found with gunshot residue on them on the day of the killing.  There could be explanations for that, but it seems highly suspect. And when you think of it, why didn't they shoot her in the head, as well?

If one or both of the parents (who are no longer together) were responsible for the child's death and not the two teens, they deserve the most severe punishment possible.

Turks Release Bird Detained For Spying For Israel

One for the bizarro file. A kestrel (yes, a bird)  was detained by Turkish authorities because they thought it might be spying for Israel. A few x-rays later it was set free. The birdie was not a Zionist spy after all. 

The kestrel aroused suspicion because of a metal ring on its foot carrying the words “24311 Tel Avivunia Israel,” prompting residents in the village of Altinayva to hand it over to the local governor.
The bird was put in an X-ray machine at a university hospital to check for microchips or bugging devices, according to the Milliyet newspaper, which carried a front-page image of the radiogram with the title “Israeli agent”. 

It's not the first time a bird has been 'arrested' on suspicion of being an Israeli Mossad spy. The Saudis in 2011 were convinced an Israeli vulture was spying on them as part of some nefarious Zionist plot. It was actually part of a scientific study of the migratory patterns of the birds. The same thing happened to a bird captured in Sudan the following year.  The Saudis "pardoned" the vulture and released it, I'm not sure what happened to the one in Sudan.

Ku Klux Klan Getting Into The Neighborhood Watch Business In MO

The Ku Klux Klan (KKK) is alive and well, living in Springfield, Mo, and getting into the neighborhood watch business.

According to KY3 News, one west-central neighborhood woke up to flyers left in front yards courtesy of the KKK.

Steven Burchett was the recipient of one of those flyers, and he's pretty pissed.

Complete with the image of a hooded figure, the flyer attempts to recruit people for a so-called neighborhood watch program. It asks, “Are there troubles in your neighborhood? Contact the…Klan today.”

“That just tells you what a coward they are. A simple knock at the door, I can say I am not interested, thank you very much and go on. But instead they have to come through in the middle of the night and drop a rock in the front yard. Nah- that is a coward,” Burchett stated.
Taking advantage of the contact number or 'Klanline',  KY3 News was told by KKK rep Frank Ancona that this is a nationwide campaign and that they will not just target minorities, whites are also fair game.

The other neighbors said they were too afraid to comment publicly, but they want nothing to do with the KKK.

Just what every neighborhood needs. Not.

The Not-So-Innocent Trayvon Martin By Bill Whittle

Bill Whittle brings up some interesting facts about the Trayvon Martin case that the main stream media has failed to discuss.

Everyone has been focusing on how an "innocent" young boy was murdered, and all he had on him was some candy and iced tea.  Let me preface this by saying George Zimmerman should never have engaged Trayvon after 911 told him to not pursue, but Trayvon was not the innocent young boy the media would have us believe. Neither was the bag of skittles and Arizona watermelon iced tea found by his body.  Apparently, there's an extremely intoxicating and powerful drug concoction called "Lean" (with some serious side effects) that is popular with the hip-hop crowd, and all you need is a bag of skittles, Arizona Iced Tea (or something similar) and the cough syrup Robitussin DM.  He had two of the ingredients needed to concoct Lean. Did he have the Robitussin at home, or was it just a co-incidence? Considering Trayvon was into drugs I would venture to say it was not a co-incidence, but we will never know.

The Conservative Treehouse has some Facebook postings and other info, including references to drugs, regarding the not-so-innocent Trayvon.

Palestinian and Israeli Heavy-Metal Bands To Tour Together For Co-Existence

Two heavy-metal rock bands are taking their "message of coexistence through rock’n’roll across Europe," and they happen to be Israeli and Palestinian.

The Israeli band “Orphaned Land” and Palestinian group “Khalas” both believe that music is above politics, religion and conflict and should bring people together.

The groups have set a mission. They hope to prove that their “metal brotherhood” music can demonstrate religious and political tolerance by coming together and doing what they love best. 
An 18-gig tour will be taking place across Europe, where both bands will perform on the same stage, as well as share a tour bus for three weeks, The Guardian newspaper reported.

“We can’t change the world, but we can give an example of how coexistence is possible,” Kobi Farhi, “Orphaned Land’s” lead singer told the newspaper.

“Sharing a stage and sharing a bus is stronger than a thousand words. We’ll show how two people from different backgrounds who live in a conflict zone can perform together,” Farhi added.

Good for them. I bet the Boycott Israel movement loves these guys.

Ex-Muslimah Talks About Freedom and Living In Fear

From the blog of a Lebanese ex-Muslim, atheist who moved to the U.S. 11 months ago.

In this blog post: What it is like to be a Muslim woman, and why we know what freedom is (and you may not), "Marwa"  talks about what it was like to finally experience total freedom, for the first time ever. Fascinating read. I don't think we fully understand what it's like to live in constant, unmitigated fear. She takes you there.

I have keys.

When I first moved to the United States eleven months ago, it took me several weeks to grasp this bit of information.

I have keys.

I have keys to my own front door and I can open this front door and walk down the street whenever I want to.

I can walk down the street without being watched through the windows and without anyone calling my parents and telling them I am roaming loose on the street.

I can walk down the street, sit down on a bench under a tree, and eat an iced cream cone. Then I can stand up and walk back home.

There will be nobody waiting for me at my house to ask me where I have been, refuse to let me in, call me a liar, and use my walk as renewed incentive to rifle through all of my possessions for proof that I am doing something wrong.

Because the simple desire to take a walk cannot but hide something deviant.

Because there is no good reason why a woman should want to walk down the street just to walk, and expose herself to the questioning and predatory eyes of the neighbors and strange men.

I have keys to my front door, now, and I can open my front door and walk down the street whenever I want to.

Get Your Own Weiner "Carlos Danger" Pseudonym

It appears that former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner- who is still vying for the New York City mayor job, though who knows for how much longer- had fun texting photos of his wing dang doodle to women even after he resigned for doing the same thing in 2011.

Weiner is married to Huma Abedin, who has family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and was Hillary Clinton's chief-of-staff. So far, Huma is standing by her man, just like Hillary did.

According to the Dirty, the gossip site that revealed this latest scandal, Weiner used the pseudonym "Carlos Danger" to text those photos of his weiner from a yahoo account, and Slate.com has now come up with a pseudonym generator where you can get your very own pseudonym by entering your first and last name.

Check it out here.

Barack Obama's name is Omar Scourge
Joe Biden's name is Emilio Dynamite

Weiner needs to quit.

Yemeni Girl Who Refused Forced Marriage and Uncle Threatened By Islamists

Both the uncle of a Yemeni 11-year-old girl Nada al-Ahdal who said she would kill herself if she was forced to marry a Yemeni man living in Saudi Arabia, and the girl herself, have been threatened by Islamists linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

The girl had been living with her uncle Abdel Salam al-Ahdal since she was three, but had returned home after her parents insisted she was to move back home.  She she ran away again after she was to be married off again.

The parents apparently have been marrying off their daughters for profit.

Pakistan Pulls "Immoral" Josh Condom Ad

A commercial for Josh condoms, aimed at preventing HIV/Aids and promoting family planning and airing on Pakistani television, is being pulled per PEMRA (the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority). Apparently it has offended too many people in that country. According to PEMRA the .50 sec spot is being "perceived as indecent, immoral, and in sheer disregard to our socio-cultural and religious values," and is therefore "unconstitutional."

The ad, which stars Pakistani actress/model Mathira, has caused quite a furor. Some think there is definitely a need for population control:

It is estimated that by the year 2050, our population will be 300 million strong. Every day, a whopping 14,000 babies are born. That is 14,000 more mouths to feed, 14,000 more children to educate and 14,000 children that need to be provided for. An average woman in Pakistan has 5 to 6 babies during her lifetime.
But find the ad disgusting for objectifying women.

You be the judge.

Thai Buddhist Couple Killed In Front Of Son

More cruel Ramadan violence. This time in Thailand.

A married Buddhist couple- 52-year-old Chuay Dermmuak and his 43-year-old wife Prapa Sanguanphan- were gunned down in front of their 4-year-old son.  Witnesses claim the family were riding their motorcycle when they were flagged down by two men riding another motorcycle. They were then murdered in front of the child. One of the men collected the spent cartridge and absconded on Dermmuak's bike.

According to police the killers were separatist militants, in other words- Muslims.

Raped Norwegian Expat Pardoned In Dubai

The Norwegian woman who was raped by a colleague on a business trip to Dubai has been "pardoned."  Marte Deborah Dalelv is free to leave Dubai. One would hope that women might think twice before choosing to live in a Middle Eastern country where such draconian laws can land a rape victim in jail. Being "pardoned" for being raped is as egregious as the sentence itself, though I'm happy that she can get the hell out of dodge.

A Norwegian woman at the center of a Dubai rape claim dispute said Sunday that officials have dropped her 16-month sentence for having sex outside marriage and she is free to leave the country.
"I am very, very happy," Marte Deborah Dalelv told The Associated Press. "I am overjoyed."
The sentence against the 24-year-old Dalelv last week stirred widespread outrage in the West and highlighted the frequent clash between Dubai's Western-friendly image and its Islamic-based legal codes.

Dalelv claimed she was raped in March by a co-worker, but was charged with having sex outside marriage after going to the police. Her decision to go public about the sentence last week in a series of interviews appeared to put pressure on authorities in Dubai and tarnish the city's reputation as a cosmopolitan hub, including possible fallout on its high-profile bid for the 2020 World Expo.

"I have my passport back. I am pardoned," said Dalelv, who worked for an interior design firm in Qatar and was in Dubai for a business meeting when the alleged rape took place.

Charles Barkley On Race Relations In The U.S. Claims There Are Black Racists

Although I disagree with him about George Zimmerman "racially" profiling Trayvon Martin, former NBA star Charles Barkley has some interesting very valid things to say about race relations in the U.S., and the Zimmerman verdict. He believes that the Zimmerman verdict was fair, per the evidence presented, though he faults him for "racially profiling" and for getting out of his car.

But he also discusses how racism is not exclusively a white thing.

"... when people talk about race, they always want to act like it's only white people who are racist,  listen, there are black people who are racist also."
He also faults the media for exacerbating racial tensions.


EU Designates Armed Wing Of Hezbollah Terrorist Organization

The European Union (EU) has finally designated the armed military wing of Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.  It was a unanimous decision on the part of the 28 EU member nations.
German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle told a news conference in Brussels that the decision is meant to send a clear signal that the EU will not tolerate terrorism on its soil.

"I welcome that together we made a crystal clear decision today in the fight against terrorism," he said. "We will put Hizballah's military arm on the list of terrorist groups. Terrorist activities inside of the European Union are unacceptable and will be met with [a] resolute, decisive, and, above all, joint response by Europe."

More here.

It's about time, although there are some who believe that sanctions will have little to no impact on the organization.

The EU joins the UK in designating the military wing as a terrorist group. Australia has listed the External Security Organization as a terrorist organization. And the following have designated the entire organization:  Bahrain, Canada, France, Gulf Cooperation Council, Israel, Netherlands.

Burqa-Clad Woman Asked To Remove Veil- Violence Ensues In Paris

Anything fully covering the face in public- including Islamic niqabs and burqas, not hijabs which show the face- are banned in France. It's the law. And yet there are those who refuse to comply. The arrest in a Paris suburb of a 21-year-old Muslim convert who allegedly tried to strangle a police officer after the cop told his burqa-clad wife to remove her veil has spawned the typical violence in Paris banlieues including Trappes.

There's been the usual mob violence including stone throwing and setting cars on fire, and the denial of guilt. We can probably expect more of the same in the days to come.

Unaccompanied Women Banned From Shopping In Northwest Pakistan

More ignorance from tribal northwest Pakistan. Clerics have declared that women must be accompanied by a male relative if they want to shop because it spreads "vulgarity and spoils men's fasting during Ramadan." No-one knows if the ban is permanent or just during the month of Ramadan. Local Karak district police, however, have said they won't enforce the ban.

Satanists Turn Westboro Baptist Fred Phelps' Dead Mama Gay

Here's one for the bizarro file. After the hideous Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) wackos claimed they planned on picketing the funerals of the victims of the Boston Bombings (which they actually did not), members of the Satanic Temple decided it was payback time. So what better way of aggravating the "God Hates Fags" church founder Fred W. Phelps and his devotees than to perform a "Pink Mass" at the grave of his mama Catherine Idalette Johnston.  According to the Satanic Temple, dead mama Phelps is now gay. 

As per Jonathan Smith of Vice.com:

The Pink Mass is a Satanic ritual performed after death that turns the deceased's straight spirit into a homo one—it’s not unlike the Mormon practice of baptizing the dead, only much gayer.
On Sunday the Satanic Temple, which first came into the national spotlight last January when the organization announced its support for Florida Governor Rick Scott, went to the Phelps family graveyard in Mississippi to perform the ritual. (Two Pink Masses were performed, one with a female couple and another with men.) I contacted Lucien Greaves, the Temple’s spokesperson and officiator of the ceremony, to find out what exactly the Pink Mass entials. While he didn't get into specifics, he told told me via email that "there were, in fact, scriptures recited, candles lit, and a ceremonial proceeding that we may eventually post the details of at our website, westboro-baptist.com. That is, if the Pink Mass generates sufficient interest to the point that other responsible parties, respectful of the graveyard, wish to perform their own."

Satanists versus Christian extremists- a match made in heaven, er, hell. [A side note here, Fred Phelps and WBC might be Christian extremists, but Phelps is a Democrat. I assume the others are as well.]

It's not the first time the WBC has been targeted by fringe groups. The hacktivist group Anonymous targeted them as well after they announced they would picket the funerals of the Sandy Hook Massacre.

Iran Demands Justice For Trayvon Martin

This is rich- Iran, a country that jails, persecutes, and executes religious minorities, hangs gays, and executes minors, has blasted the U.S. for its "racial discrimination" by acquitting George Zimmerman.

“The acquittal of the murderer of the teenage African American once again clearly demonstrated the unwritten, but systematic racial discrimination against racial, religious, and ethnic minorities in the US society,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Araqchi was quoted as saying by Iran’s state run Fars News Agency.

“The court ruling has also seriously put under question the fairness of the judicial process in the United States,” Fars reported Araqchi as saying.

[Snip]

“Several months on since a probe was launched [into the murder], the public opinion in the U.S. and across the world expect transparency, an accurate and fair judicial investigation into the case, with due regard to human rights principles for American citizens and a ban on discrimination against minorities in the country,” Araqchi said.
What a joke.

Black Panthers- Zimmerman "A No Good Jew" Has A Bounty On His Head

Mikhail Muhammad, the Southern regional minister of The New Black Panther Party of Self Defense, speaking in Jacksonville regarding Trayvon Martin being "assassinated by a wicked white beast, who today is talking about he's a hispanic, and so we're not going to go along with that. We don't care, cos his father is a Jew. He's a no good Jew."

Interesting how groups like the Black Panthers will classify Barack Obama as black, when he is actually half white and half black, and yet Zimmerman who is half hispanic and half white, is considered white. And note the anti-Semitism. Ironic.

And then there are the threats. They have a $10,000 bounty on Zimmerman's head, "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth",  as Muhammad puts it. He also talks about how the Panthers will no longer tolerate white America killing their babies, and how they are mobilizing thousands of African American men to handle the situation.

Why don't they mobilize those men and focus on stopping the black on black violence.

Sad


Video interview with the 11-year-old boy who was beaten up at a pro-Morsi protest.

The brave young kid has been identified as Ahmad Osama Sayyed, and he claims that he was telling the protesters "Shame on you. You're destroying the country. To hell with Morsi" when he was attacked by pro-Morsi goons.  According to the boy, one of those was allegedly Yahya Hamid, the Minister of Investment in Mohammed Morsi's cabinet.  Ahmad tells the interviewer that he hates the Muslim Brotherhood because he considers them barbaric.

With $6 Billion, FSA Can Wipe Out The Shiite Muslims

Calling upon his Arab and Muslim brothers Free Syrian Army (FSA) commander Abu Ameen says with $6 billion he can wipe out the Shiite population, "this rotten sect that is killing Muslims."  Anyone see the irony in that statement? He also criticizes those brothers for supporting the "coup" in Egypt.

The fact is they are both culpable.

Saudi Arabian Airlines Defends Ban On Israeli and Jewish Passengers

Apparently neither Israelis NOR Jews are allowed to fly on Saudi Arabian Airlines. According to Khalid al-Melhem, director general of the airline, it's because Saudi Arabia and Israel do not have diplomatic relations, and if a passenger happened to get stuck in Saudi Arabia in transit there would be major trouble.
“If there is an absence of political relations between [Saudi Arabia] and any other country, we will not allow that country’s citizens into the kingdom,” Melhem told Saudi’s Al-Watan newspaper.


Bill de Blasio, NY public advocate, responded with:

“No city in the world has closer ties to Israel than we do, and yet Israeli citizens are being discriminated against right here at JFK [airport]. It’s not only illegal; it’s an affront to who we are."
And he promised that if the Saudi airline doesn't change its ban against Israeli travelers, or comply with international aviation laws that bar discrimination,

“[he]...will act to make sure they’re excluded from United States airports, starting with JFK."

“We won’t stop with just exposing these practices. We’ll pursue this with authorities in Albany and in Washington until Israeli nationals’ rights are respected.”
Just imagine if an airline refused to allow Muslims on board.

Sharia Sisters Behind False Accusations of Child Rape At Kindergarten in Belgium


Esther from Islam in Europe temporarily resurrected her blog for the following post: Sharia Sisters, an off-shoot of the radical Sharia4Belgium, is allegedly behind false accusations against a 23-year-old teacher at a kindergarten school in Antwerp. She was accused of raping a 4-year-old boy.  Esther has no English source for the allegations, but plenty of Dutch ones.

The story started when a teacher was accused of sexually abusing kindergarten kids in the Antwerp school De Blokkendoos, this past June. For days parents protested outside the school, and finally the school was forced to close a week ahead of the summer vacation. The teacher and administration of the school also received death threats and had to go into hiding. The case has not been officially closed, but the Mayor of Antwerp Bart De Wever recently announced that the teacher had been wrongly accused.

And this is where it gets interesting.

It turns out that the mother who first complained is Najat Mejdoubi, who said the teacher had raped and abused her 4-year old son. Majdoubi is a member of Sharia Sisters, a sister organization of Sharia4Belgium. Dozens of parents joined in the accusations, three turned to the police.

It's not clear whether the hysteria that followed was orchestrated by any organization, but according to a court source, the case fits well with the Sharia4Belgium strategy. "We saw the same phenomenon with the niqab incident in Molenbeek last year. A number of extremists tried to use the De Blokkendoos story to incite the community against everything non-Muslim." The source continued, that though there were protests at the school, the inciters hadn't managed to inflame the rest of the Muslim community, which is to the merit of the Muslim community itself.

Why Should Piss Poor Greeks Pay For A Mosque In Athens?

So Greece is in dire straits, economically, and yet they've promised to build a mosque in Athens? No wonder people are up in arms, though some of those- like the neo-Nazi-like Golden Dawn Party- are more than questionable.

Reviving the long-stalled project during Greece's worst peacetime economic crisis has divided a country that spent four centuries under Turkish Ottoman rule, where the Orthodox Church is powerful and hostility toward immigrants is rising.

Apparently it was promised a century ago, but considering Greece's economic state (its own fault), and the fact that the Greeks are still bucking for an EU and IMF bailout, I don't think building a mosque- which will cost the government well over $1 million- is such a good idea.  If Muslims want a mosque (which, granted, will be modern and not have a minaret) why don't they raise the funds themselves?

Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyep Erdogan had said he would fund the mosque, but some Greeks were not too keen on the Ottoman Empire connection.

Pakistani Woman Stoned To Death For Having A Cell Phone

From the Asian Human Rights Commission: Arifa, a young Pakistani mother of two, was stoned to death by an uncle and other relatives because they discovered she had a cell phone.  The death sentence by stoning was issued by the Panchayat or tribal court.  No-one has been arrested, and more than likely never will be.

According to media reports her uncle, cousins and other relatives threw stones and bricks at her until she died. She was buried without informing anyone. Police registered a First Information Report (FIR) against the Panchayat but no one has been arrested. She was buried in a desert far away from her village and nobody (not even her children) was allowed to participate in the funeral. Her husband is unknown.

The Panchayat is illegal., but no-one is willing to do anything about it, and the local police are complicit.

It's all about controlling the female population in a chauvinistic, patriarchal society where a woman's life means absolutely nothing.

Sickening.

Boko Haram Promises More School Attacks In Nigeria

Boko Haram murdered a bunch of innocent students and a few teachers at a boarding school in Nigeria at the beginning of July. Now Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the murderous Boko Haram Islamist group, has promised more school massacres because western education is a "plot against Islam".

In a video Shekau said:

"Teachers who teach western education? We will kill them! We will kill them in front of their students, and tell the students to henceforth study the Qur'an."
Shekau denied that his fighters killed children. "Our religion does not permit us to touch small children and women, we don't kill children," he said, reading from sheets of paper as he cradled a Kalashnikov. He also dismissed talk of a ceasefire. Last week the government said it had signed a deal with Shekau's second-in-command.
They don't kill children and women? They didn't kill those children in the dorm?  Right. I guess it was the Holy Ghost.

Such ignorance.

More on the story, and how Boko Haram is recruiting young kids to fight.

UPDATE: Norwegian Rape Victim Gets 16 Months Jail Time In Dubai

UPDATE: 7/22/13 Marte, who was working for Janet Jackson's Qatari billionaire husband's company- Al Mana Interiors- was fired from her job. Her co-worker rapist received 3 months less of a jail sentence than she did.

UPDATE:  More info on the Norwegian woman. Marte Deborah Dalelv is an interior designer living in Qatar.

Only in a Muslim country would a woman be victimized twice: raped and then jailed. And tragically it happens all the time.  Although it often happens to Muslim women, this time the victim was a non-Muslim foreigner.

A 25-year-old Norwegian woman on a business trip in Dubai was raped last March. When she went to the police to report the sexual assault, rather than arresting the rapist, they confiscated her passport and dumped her in jail because they did not believe her story.  So she gets to spend 16 months in prison for being raped, although the official sentence was for sex outside of marriage, drinking alcohol and perjury.

The United Arab Emirates is probably trying to discourage women from reporting rapes because it would give the nation a bad image.

This is what Sharia law gets you, a free pass for the rapist since he won't be convicted unless he confesses (as if he would), or if four adult Muslim males witness the rape, which means men never get convicted.

Two Malaysians Could Get Jail For Posting Pork Stew Photos On Facebook

Two young Malaysian ethnic Chinese non-Muslims could be jailed for up to eight years for "sedition" and "inciting religious enmity."  Their horrific crime?  Posting Ramadan greetings on Facebook along with a photo of the two of them chowing down on pork stew. Insensitive, I guess, foolish, most definitely, considering  the majority of the Malaysian population is Muslim, and everything seems to offend them. But 8 years in prison?
.
Alvin Tan and Vivian Lee pleaded not guilty since they claimed the photo was posted in jest, but they will have to remain in jail since the Kuala Lumpur courts refused to set bail.

Malaysia’s attorney general, Abdul Gani Patail, said in a statement that authorities want them detained because “they have the potential to upload content that could stir public anger.” They were expected to be placed in separate prisons ahead of a preliminary hearing Aug. 24 to schedule trial dates.
Since Muslims are fasting this month it was probably not a great idea to do what they did, but they're young- in their twenties.

Normal folk just chastise or unfriend someone on Facebook if they are offended by a post, not so in this case.

Anti-Israel Muslim Student Activist Appointed To UC Berkeley Board

The University of California at Berkeley (UCB) is having a similar share of controversy as Florida Atlantic University (FAU).  FAU recently bestowed a prestigious award upon anti-Semite, pro-Palestinian activist Noor Fawzy, now UCB is getting flak for appointing 21-year-old Sadia Saifuddin to the governing board as a student member for a one year term beginning in 2014. Like Fawzy, Sadia has been active in anti-Israel campaigns. She will be the first Muslim to serve as a student member, but there are some who are not very happy with this decision- not so much because she is a Muslim, but rather because of her polarizing activities.

Jewish groups including the prominent Simon Wiesenthal Center strongly objected to her nomination, citing her involvement in a campaign to divest university funds from companies with business connections to the Israeli military.

They also objected to her sponsoring a student senate resolution that condemned a lecturer at the system’s Santa Cruz campus for what the resolution said was Islamophobic rhetoric. The groups said it was Saifuddin who showed an intolerance toward opposing viewpoints.

“In a year where campus climate issues have been the dominant theme of the UC system, a vote to appoint somebody who has served to polarize thousands and thousands of people in the campus community and beyond is shocking,” said Rabbi Aron Hierof the Wiesenthal Center, which petitioned the regents to deny Saifuddin a seat on the board.

“An appropriate Muslim candidate could have ably served in this position. We don’t believe Sadia is that appropriate candidate,” he added.

Despite the opposition, 25 university regents voted on Wednesday to confirm her appointment with one member, Richard Blum, abstaining from the vote. He cited concerns about Saifuddin’s divestment efforts.

But not all Jews objected to her selection. Regent Bonnie Reiss, the chair of the student regent selection committee, said:

“Sadia is a remarkable young woman. She is committed to supporting all of UC students, and to this university and this country which she loves."

Reiss does not believe Sadia is anti-Semitic in spite of her divestment efforts.

Of course Ibrahim Hooper, of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), had to pipe in calling the critics Islamophobes.

“Anytime an American Muslim rises to a prominent position, or starts to rise to prominence, that tiny minority of ‘Islamophobes’ in our society goes into action and seeks to marginalize and disenfranchise that individual,” Hooper said.

Typical.

God Is A " White Racist" Claims Ivy League Professor After Zimmerman Verdict

Anthea Butler is an associate professor of Religious Studies at the Ivy League University of Pennsylvania. In a blog post on Religion Dispatches, Anthea had this to say about the George Zimmerman verdict:

“God ain’t good all of the time. In fact, sometimes, God is not for us,” she wrote in the post. “As a black woman in an [sic] nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god.

“As a matter of fact, I think he’s a white racist god with a problem. More importantly, he is carrying a gun and stalking young black men."

And she is educating our youth.

Al-Qaeda To Establish Islamic State In Syria, Claims FSA

Looks like there will soon be fighting in Syria on 3 fronts- Bashar al-Assad's forces versus the Free Syrian Army (FSA) versus the al-Qaeda linked and influenced Islamists.  The latter two will probably duke it out after al-Qaeda announces an Islamic state in the northern part of Syria where the rebel forces have prevailed. According to an anonymous rep of the FSA this is going to happen once they are done with Ramadan, the first day of Eid.

He said: “The implementation of this plan started last week with the killing of Commander Fadi El-Qash and his brother in Dana village, followed by the killing of senior member of the Supreme Command Council, Kamal Hamami, and will be followed by more assassinations of officers and important figures in the FSA.”

The sources confirmed that “the FSA circulated this information within limited, trusted circles as soon as it became available, and will avoid any confrontation that could weaken the rebels in their fight against the government forces.”

He claimed that the FSA was currently “deploying units and erecting checkpoints in towns that will be targeted according to the plan, and strengthen our presence in these towns to stop them becoming prey to the Islamic state.”

Meanwhile, the FSA source said “we will try to sit down and talk to the Islamic state if we find someone who listens, in order to avoid bloodbaths and clashes which would reflect negatively on the fight against the government forces.”

He added, however, that “whatever we do, there will definitely be war between us.”
The BBC reported on Tuesday that the FSA, following the killing of Hamami, said: “The Islamic state had threatened to kill all of the other members of the Supreme Military Council, another sign of the escalating struggle within the armed uprising.”

 And weapons are headed for the rebel opposition forces from the EU and the US.

It's going to get even uglier and bloodier in Syria, before the dust finally settles, whenever that happens.

Egyptian Islamists Beat Young Boy- Viral Video

Al Arabiya has posted a video that has gone viral of a young Egyptian boy being attacked by a group of pro-Morsi Islamists after they discover he's not there to support Mohammed Morsi.

Islamists flooded Ramses Square in Cairo after stuffing their faces for Iftar- the meal that breaks the Ramadan fast.

Thousands of Islamists poured into the square after breaking their Ramadan fast on Monday seeking to organize a sit-in there, threatening to paralyze traffic in one of the busiest parts of Cairo.

Their move prompted police intervention and violent clashes throughout the night. During the clashes a boy showed up to the scene and the angry Islamists grabbed him with one of them asking him:

“Who sent you here?” “Who are you?” “Are you with Mursi?” and “Who are you with?”

The horrified-looking boy was then beaten on the back of his head and then he was slapped.

When a man attempted to stop the assault, they shouted at him saying that the boy was hired by Mursi’s opponents.

“I know he is, but he’s just a child,” the young man responds. The crying boy pleads for help as several men continue to beat him.

“This isn’t merciful,” says a man approaching them.

He and others take the boy away, but it is unclear what happened to him afterwards.

At the end of the video, a protester notices that the incident is being filmed, so he tells the cameraman to film photos of Mursi instead.

So here we have a group of adults beating a defenseless young boy during Ramadan the holiest of holy Muslim holidays. One of the Five Pillars of Islam. Maulana Muhammad Ali said of Ramadan fasting:

“The real purpose of fasting is to attain righteousness. A person who undergoes hunger and thirst, but does not behave righteously, has done nothing. If someone is told the aim and object of doing a certain duty, and he does that duty but does not attain the required aim and object, it is as if he has not done that duty.”

Violence is not righteous.  This just demonstrates how hypocritical the most self-righteous and supposedly pious Muslims really are.

CVS Won't Sell The Boston Bomber Rolling Stone Magazine Edition

Rolling Stones Magazine has decided to feature on its front page the Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev looking like a pop star.



Why? Is he a rock star?  Did they actually go to the jail and set up a photo shoot? 

The tagline says:

"How A Popular, Promising Student Was Failed by His Family, Fell Into Radical Islam, and Became a Monster.”


Rolling Stone's justification:


Our hearts go out to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and our thoughts are always with them and their families. The cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone’s long-standing commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage of the most important political and cultural issues of our day. The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens. –THE EDITORS


Disgusting.


CVS pharmacy, Walgreens ad Tedeschi food shops have refused to sell this edition of the magazine.
Good on them.

Egyptian Girl Commits Suicide After Refusing To Wear Hijab

Amira, a 15-year-old Egyptian girl, allegedly committed suicide as a result of the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of her family after refusing to wear the hijab. The girl apparently shot herself with her father's gun, but you have to wonder if it was actually suicide or did her family kill her for dishonoring them by refusing to wear the headscarf.  Not an impossibility, considering people have been honor killed for equally ludicrous reasons.

Either way, I'm sure they are probably happy to be rid of a rebellious child.

How incredibly sad.

Calls To Destroy America and Return the Caliphate At Pro-Morsi Protest At Al-Aqsa Mosque Call For

A Pro-Morsi demonstration- apparently at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem- with some bearded old dude calling for France and America to be destroyed and for Rome to be conquered. Here are some tidbits from the rally.

"We are the nation of Islam- a giant and mighty nation which extends from east to west. Soon we will teach you a political and military lesson, Allah willing."

"Oh, Obama listen up. The Caliphate shall return." "Khaybar, Khaybar, oh Jews,  the army of Mohammad will return."

"Down with America and with all its dogs." "Whoever negotiates with America is a collaborator and a coward." "Down with the peaceful solution."

It's time to stop sending aid to all those countries that hate us so much.

Kill 'Pussy Riot' Members In Russian Orthodox Video Game

Apparently the Russian Orthodox (Christian) Church wants more young ones attending services, so on July 11- at a church youth festival- it debuted a new video game aimed at getting more of them involved.  It's called "Don't Let Pussy Riot Enter Into The Cathedral", and the kids get to "kill" the feminist anti-Putin punk rockers with a cross before they can enter a church. Kill?  What's wrong with this picture.

Two of the three arrested members of Pussy Riot- Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 23 and Maria Alyokhina, 25-  are still serving their two year jail sentence for offending the "religious feelings of believers" after barging into an Orthodox church last year and singing a song asking the Virgin Mary to help get rid of Vladimir Putin. This offended enough people to warrant a two year prison term! Unbelievable. 30-year-old Yekaterina Samutsevich was released.

You can play the game on RFE/RL here.  But turn off your sound, because the song that got the three of them arrested and then jailed- "Punk Prayer For Putin" - accompanies the video game, and it's pretty painful.

Shariah Compliant Banking At UK's Lloyd's TSB

Had no idea that Lloyd's TSB bank has a Shariah compliant full service banking system. They have for almost 10 years.  It started at a few branches in the U.K. in 2005 and then went nationwide in 2006. They offer everything from business to personal accounts to mortgage accounts.  Interest free on all accounts, and no minimum amount in the 'current accounts'.  Apparently, with mortgages, the bank purchases the house and they get to pay off the purchase price in monthly installments. Ownership is transferred once the purchase price has been paid.

My question.  What do the banks get out of this?

Angel Gabriel Seen At Pro-Morsi Protests

Pakistani Taliban Join The Fight In Syria

Pakistani Taliban are joining the fight in Syria, and we all know where that will eventually lead, if they prevail: Shariah for secular Syria.

Taliban commanders told Reuters on Sunday that they decided to join the cause in Syria in order to fight alongside their “Mujahedeen friends.”

“When our brothers needed our help, we sent hundreds of fighters along with our Arab friends,” one senior commander said, mentioning that his group would be providing the general public with videos of their “victories” in Syria.

European Female Arrested For Desecrating Quran In Oman

An unidentified European woman was arrested in Oman for allegedly ripping pages out of a Quran and rubbing them on her feet. Apparently someone saw her desecrating the holy book near Al Hamadah Mosque in Sohar and immediately called the police.

If this indeed happened, the woman must have been drunk or mentally unstable to desecrate a Quran in public in a Muslim country.

The Omanis are particularly appalled that she did this during Ramadan.

Apparently this is the first time an infidel has done such a thing.

Malala Yousafzai's Powerful UN Speech

Excerpts from Malala Yousafzai's powerful UN speech given on Malala Day, July 12. Hard to believe she only just turned 16 that day. Such grace, intelligence, and understanding from such a young one.

There are hundreds of Human rights activists and social workers who are not only speaking for human rights, but who are struggling to achieve their goals of education, peace and equality. Thousands of people have been killed by the terrorists and millions have been injured. I am just one of them.
So here I stand.... one girl among many.
...
Dear friends, on the 9th of October 2012, the Taliban shot me on the left side of my forehead. They shot my friends too. They thought that the bullet would silence us. But they failed. And out of that silence came thousands of voices. The terrorists thought that they would change my aims and stop my ambitions but nothing changed in my life except this: Weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born. 
 
 ..“The pen is mightier than sword” was true. The extremists were and they are afraid of books and pens. The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women frightens them. And that is why they killed 14 innocent (medical) students in the recent attack in Quetta. And that is why they killed many female teachers and polio workers in Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa. That is why they are blasting schools every day. Because they were and they are afraid of change, afraid of  equality that we will bring into our society.
...
I remember that there was a boy in our school who was asked by a journalist, “Why are the Taliban against education?” He answered very simply. By pointing to his book he said, “A Talib doesn’t know what is written inside this book.” They think that God is a tiny, little conservative being who would send girls to the hell just because of going to school. 
...
Dear fellows, today I am focusing on women’s rights and girls’ education because they are suffering the most. There was a time when women social activists asked men to stand up for their rights. But, this time, we will do it by ourselves. I am not telling men to step away from speaking for women’s rights, rather I am focusing on women to be independent to fight for themselves.
...
And if we want to achieve our goal, then let us empower ourselves with the weapon of knowledge, and let us shield ourselves with unity and togetherness.
...
and let us pick up our books and our pens. They are our most powerful weapons.
One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.

This young girl, if she survives those who want her dead, will do great things.

Video of the whole speech.

Jordanian Dad Tortured His Five Daughters In The UAE

Allegations of torture and abuse of 5 daughters- 10 to 16- by a Jordanian expat and his two sisters. Cigarette burns while forced to kneel naked, broken noses, beatings with ropes and sticks, pierced by needles, underfed.

Recently divorced after 18 years of marriage, the mum- who had also been abused- had moved back to Jordan and was unable to take care of the girls.  According to the mum, the dad, who is a jail warden in the UAE, hated her for not having boys, and obviously hated the girls as well.

Dad and his two wicked sisters have been arrested.

Full story here.

Not that this kind of thing doesn't happen in the West, it does, but many claim that domestic abuse is minimal in the Muslim population, which is clearly untrue.


Grateful Gaza Farmers Attend Israeli Seminars On Farming

Here's something you won't see in the mainstream and Arab media, or hear about within the Boycott Israel Movement.

60 grateful Gaza farmers attended a seminar in northern Israel, hosted by a seed company they had purchased seeds from.  The workshops and seminars are held to aid the farmers in creating larger and better crop yields. 


“In addition, the farmers focused primarily on watermelons, and had stated that this year, owing to the training programs conducted frequently in Israel; growers had achieved unprecedented crop yields – 11 tons of produce for each decare of cultivated fields – A twofold increase compared with the preceding year.”

Scorned Turkish Wife Leaves With Roof And The Kitchen Sink

This is what a scorned woman in Turkey will do: Remove everything including the roof, windows and the kitchen sink, and leave her hubby Sahin Idem with virtually nothing but the two kids.

The top link actually has more detailed info, though there is no indication of what the argument was that set her off. It's actually kind of sad.

Sexual Jihad Coming Soon To The Pro-Morsi Sit-In Camps In Egypt

"Sexual Jihad" is nothing more than Islamically sanctioned prostitution, although the sanctimonious jihadists don't seem to see it in those terms. And there have actually been fatwas encouraging it in Syria.

Now those pious female Egytpian Muslim Brotherhood (MB) groupies are poised to offer their bodies to their co-jihadists at the sit-in camp in Rabea al-Adawiya Square in Cairo, and other squares where the MB have settled in to protest Morsi's ouster.

Hardcore Muslim Brotherhood (MB) supporters are awaiting a signal to commence a campaign of 'sexual Jihad' within their sit-in camp in Cairo; which is something a Fatwa (religious edict) posted on a MB-affiliated Facebook paged suggests will soon be allowed.

The fatwa came in response to a question by a female Brotherhood supporter asking if 'sexual Jihad' is allowed in  and the rest of Egyptian squares where people have been protesting since 30 June.

The religious answer was: “Not now. Let us wait first for what will happen, may God strengthen the Mujahedeen.”

“Sexual Jihad” refers the female Islamists offering their sexual services to their male counterparts so they remain motivated to continue the struggle for their cause.

More here.

No wonder Islamists love jihad, it's the only way they can get some sexual 'action'  without being stoned to death for adultery.

British Royal Family 100% Zionist Jews- From Chechen Kavkaz Center

From Chechen terrorist site Kavkaz Center (run by the Caucasian Emirates, the same group threatening violence if Russia hosts the 2014 Olympic Winter Games):

The British Royal Family are Zionist Jews.

It still remains a question for many people in the UK as how a "flight attendant" could marry queen's grandson; a fact that although hushed and ignored by British mainstream media, did not manage to skip some media's attention, writes Mehr News.

The truth is that the royal family's new bride is a Jew. Although in the wedding ceremony it was pretended that Kate Middleton is Christian but this lady's family roots show that she is considered a Sephardic Jew from her mother's side. Moreover the timing of the wedding and the way it was held which was based on Jewish culture verify the evidences.

Kate's mother was surnamed Goldsmith before marrying Kate's father. According to Jewish laws if a mother is a Jew, her children will be Jews, too. Therefore Kate Middleton is a Sephardic Jew and her children will be Jews based on the Jewish law.

This gains more significance once we realize that she is stepping in to the Buckingham Palace as the wife of a man who will be not only the king of England but also the Supreme Governor of the Church of England. Sources close to this 30 year-old bride have said that Kate Middleton and her parents would not regularly attend the church service, therefore Church of England decided to baptize and Christianize the new member unofficially and secretly so that her marriage to Prince William could be confirmed.

Nevertheless even being baptized by the bishop of the church cannot prevent Prince William's son, the next king and the senior governor of the Church of England, from being a Jew as Kate and William's child will inevitably remain a Jew.

Even if they were, who cares?

Paul McCartney Threatened With Death By Boycott Israel Groups In 2008

There have been many musicians who have been threatened and then blasted for performing in Israel and not caving into the boycott Israel groups (BDS) demands, including most recently Alicia Keys and the Pet Shop Boys. But I had no idea that those vessels of enlightenment actually threatened Paul McCartney with death back in 2008. He went anyway.

Woman With UK NHS-Paid Boob Job Wants Them Smaller

Gotta love those nanny states.  23-year-old Brit Josie Cunningham got a boob job back in March, courtesy of England's National Health Service (NHS), because she's a model... of sorts.  But she's unhappy with how people have reacted to her additions, so now she wants them smaller, and thinks the NSA should pay for the breast reduction.

The Leeds native is asking taxpayers to foot the bill for her implants to be removed and reduced, reports the Mirror. The mother of two claims that she is unable to find modeling work due to the negative attention surrounding her artificial boobs.

“I don’t want to spend my life being known as the girl with massive NHS boobs, so having smaller implants is the only option."

“I’m looking into charities that could help, but I think it’s down to the NHS because they made them so big,” she explained. She alleged that people would follow her in the street, calling her a slut and demanding their money back.


Of course we've had our own tax-payer funded absurdities.

Catalonia To Ban Burqas and Other Face Coverings

Catalonia has decided to "control' the wearing of burqas, along with masks and helmets, in public places "for reasons of public safety".  Spain actually reversed its ban in March 2013.

Not sure what "control" means, and whether it's an actual ban, but the government was very clear in stating that this had nothing to do with religion.

Ansar al-Sharia Militants Will Fight In Egypt

According to kavkaz center, al-Qaeda-linked Ansar al-Sharia has formed an Egyptian affiliate

Ansar al-Sharia in Egypt said it would gather arms and start training its members, in a statement posted on an online forum.

Ansar al-Sharia said in its statement the military coup, the closing of television channels and the killing of Muslim protesters all amounted to a war declared against Islam in Egypt.

The group pointed at criminals: secularists, supporters of Mubarak and Egyptian Coptic Christians, state security forces and army commanders, who would turn the country into a crusader, secular freak.

It denounced democracy and said it would instead champion Islamic law, or Sharia, acquire weapons and train to allow Muslims to deter the attackers, preserve the religion and empower the Sharia of the Lord.

This spells major trouble.

Civil States Are A Cancer- An Islamist's POV

Insight into why Islamists hate freedom, equality and liberty.

Freedom. Equality. Liberty. These emotive catchwords and slogans shouted from the lips of the infidels have ushered in the greatest attempt of disbelieving man to install himself in the place of the Allah Ta'ala - crowning himself lord, king, judge, legislator, president - a 'god' in his own deformed image. The modern vehicle for this self-destructive endeavour is the civil state.

Predicated upon a rejection of the Source of existence and the Sharia necessary for human sustenance and advancement that is in harmony with the rest of the creation, the civil state has been constructed as a means to try to protect the infidels from having to face their inevitable date with death that all souls will taste. For once Allah Ta'ala, His Message, and His Law are rejected, physical death becomes the greatest fear and the greatest reality to be avoided at all costs. That they have lost all understanding of physical life, death, and the hereafter should be obvious.

Joyce Carol Oates Blasted For Egypt Tweets Linking Islam and Culture of Rape

Prolific writer Joyce Carol Oates  is receiving a lot of flak for posting on Twitter about the troubling culture of rape in Egypt and linking it to Islam.

Oates's 140-word political tweet-bombs began by remarking: "Something dispiriting about 'Brotherhood' political parties – wonder what it is."
And drove on with "Where 99.3% of women report having been sexually harassed & rape is epidemic – Egypt – natural to inquire: what's the predominant religion?"
Legitimate question to ask, but these are some of the responses she received..

Open City author Teju Cole (@tejucole) responded: "This makes me sad. Religion is a non sequitur here. You're being unfair, and presenting that unfairness as forthrightness."

Writer Edward Champion (@drmabuse) replied "80 sexual assaults in one day, @joycecaroloates? Try 720 in one day in the US…"

Journalist and novelist Lorraine Adams (@lorraineadams) added: "Violence against women is rampant across almost all cultures since time began. Why is that so hard to understand?"

Other Twitter users poked fun at Oates, with @cszabla saying "love your literary experiment tweeting in the voice of Oates tweeting in the voice of Fox News, @JoyceCarolOates!"
Not surprisingly, she backpedaled, because that's what people do when faced with a barrage of negative response.

 "Blaming religion(s) for cruel behavior of believers may be a way of not wishing to acknowledge they'd be just as cruel if secular."
Edward Champion's comparison of rape statistics between Egypt and the U.S. is asinine. First of all:

Population of Egypt in 2012: approximately 83,688,164
Population of the U.S. in 2012: almost 313 Million people

Uh, no comparison Edward.

And yes, there were rapes and sexual assaults during the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) demonstrations- if we're going to compare apples to apples- but again, no comparison in terms of amounts of rapes in one day. Although, granted, there weren't the hordes that were protesting in Tahrir Square at the OWS protests.

She had every right to pose that question. There may be a lot of rapes and sexual harassment in this country, but I would venture to say that the percentage is far from 99% of the female population.

Why is sexual harassment so rampant in Egypt, a Muslim-majority country?

Girl, 10, Married Off To 50-Year-Old As Blood Feud Payment

There are some incredibly wretched customs in tribal Pakistan, like the one whereby blood feuds are resolved through 'vani' or forced child marriages, unless the family has enough money to settle the score. Although illegal in Pakistan, it is still a common practice in the conservative, tribal areas of the country.

Here's a true scenario

Even though he was married, Muhammad Akram decided he fancied Munawaran Bibi, so he kidnapped her (another common custom in Pakistan) and then married her.  So now he had two wives.  Pissed off about the abduction Munawaran's 50-year-old brother Falak Sher demanded vani, so the village court ordered Akram's 10-year-old daughter to be handed over to him in marriage.

The FIR filed by the girl’s uncle reveals that Falak Sher had barged into Akram’s house along with seven other men, including a prayer-leader from a local mosque, and performed a forced nuptial ritual in the presence of Akram’s first wife.
It appears the child managed to run away, back to her parents. But according to villagers, the police have been reluctant to do anything about the nine people that the uncle file a complaint against, including Sher, the village 'court' and the prayer leader.

She can thank her stupid dad for her predicament.

Video- Sexual Violence Against Women In Egypt

From Human Rights Watch:

New York, July 3, 2013) -- Egyptian anti-sexual harassment groups confirmed that mobs sexually assaulted and in some cases raped at least 91 women in Tahrir Square over four days of protests beginning on June 30, 2013 amid a climate of impunity. Human Rights Watch has long documented the problem of sexual assault in Cairo's streets and particularly at protests. A new video highlights the stories of women who have been attacked, in some cases as recently as January.
Sexual harassment has been an ongoing problem for women for decades. Men blame it on women- how they dress and how they walk- even though modestly dressed, hijab-clad women are also targeted. Nothing is done about it, on any level, so it continues.

Trump's Obama You're Fired Parody RNC Video Released

Breitbart has posted the full-length, never-aired Donald Trump  'Obama You're fired' parody video he produced for the Mitt Romney campaign that was to air on the first night of the Republican National Convention last August in Tampa. That never happened due to reasons which differ depending on the source. According to Stuart Stevens, Romney's political adviser, since the convention had to be shortened due to weather delays they decided to cut the video.  Trump and his cohorts beg to differ.  They claim that Romney and his aides felt it was too controversial.

"The reason they didn't put it on is because they thought it was too controversial. Controversy. It might not be politically correct," Trump said.

Stevens added that it wasn't used as a campaign ad because it was too long. The usual format for a TV commercial is either 30 or 60 seconds.

The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle.

The video cost $100,000 to produce.
