Video- 100s of Qaeda Jihadists Headed For Syria

Hundreds of al-Qaeda jihadists entering Syria willing to fight for their 72 and slaughter other Muslims.

Apparently they're from al-Qaeda in Iraq and the Levant and are headed towards Shiite villages in Aleppo province in the north.  They don't like the Shiites so we know what their goal is.




Kim Jong-un Executes Ex-Girlfriend And 11 Other Musicians

Kim Jong-un, who is going to eventually rot in hell with his daddy and granddaddy, added another check mark on his karmic slate.  He just had his ex-girlfriend, singer Hyun Song-wol, publicly executed along with 11 other prominent North Korean musicians.  By firing squad. According to Chinese sources, the crime:  pornography. Some members of the Unhasu Orchestra, including the head Mun Kyong-jin, and dancers, singers and musicians from the Wangjaesan Light Music Band along with Hyun and members of her band were purported to have had a little x-rated side-business selling videos of themselves 'doing it'.  Some were also allegedly found with bibles. Another executable offense, I guess.

Now here's where it gets interesting, and is probably more likely the reason for Hyun's death sentence.
Kim met Hyon about a decade ago, before either of them was married. But he was later ordered to break off the relationship by his father Kim Jong-il and she married a soldier. Since then there have been rumors that the two were having an affair.
Kim's wife Ri Sol-ju was also a member of the Unhasu Orchestra before she married him.
Both bands have been disbanded, and according to a source:

"They were executed with machine guns while the key members of the Unhasu Orchestra, Wangjaesan Light Band and Moranbong Band as well as the families of the victims looked on."

And just for pudge-boy's pleasure, the witnesses and the families of all of those executed have been shipped off to prison camps where they will probably spend the rest of their lives.

Hyon was a popular singer with the Pochonbo Electronic Ensemble (video of her singing here) which focused on patriotic and revolutionary propaganda songs, not that there's much else allowed in the DPRK.

Obviously, there are those who do not buy into the official reason for execution and blame it on either political reasons or possibly on Kim Jong-un's pretty new wife.

"If these people had only made pornographic videos, then it is simply not believable that their punishment was execution," Toshimitsu Shigemura, a professor at Tokyo's Waseda University and an authority on North Korean affairs, told The Daily Telegraph.

"They could have been made to disappear into the prison system there instead.

"There is a political reason behind this," he said, suggesting that the groups may have been leaning towards a rival faction in Pyongyang's shadowy political world.

"Or, as Kim's wife once belonged to the same group, it is possible that these executions are more about Kim's wife," Professor Shigemura added.

Makes much more sense.

And there are actually people who admire the Kim dynasty. Unbelievable.

Video Of IDF Soldiers and Palestinians Dancing Gangnam Style At Wedding

Interesting video of Israeli IDF troops dancing at a Palestinian wedding. The soldiers could be in trouble, however, because some of the Palestinians might have possible ties to Hamas. 

Would peace be possible if the leaders could just get out of the way of the people?

Portrait Of Putin In Woman's Slip Gets Russian Gallery Owner In Trouble

Some satirical portraits of Russian high-ranking politicians has landed a St Petersburg art gallery (Museum of Authorities) in major trouble.  Owner Aleksandr Donskoi's latest exhibition was raided, 4 paintings were confiscated, and the gallery was subsequently shut down.

One of the portraits that was seized was this one:



That's supposedly Vladimir Putin in a slip fussing with the hair of a bra and panty-clad Dmitry Medvedev. Not a great likeness of either, but some were not amused.

Donskoi believes the raid was initiated by Vitaly Milonov, a local lawmaker who has actively backed a new law targeting homosexuals in Russia.

"Vitaly Milonov arrived with a group of police officers, FSB officials, and representatives of the Prosecutor-General's Office," he said. "They shut down the museum on the grounds that it displayed works that are blasphemous and extremist."

One of the seized paintings depicts Milonov himself -- who has described the images as "pornographic" -- against a backdrop of the gay-rights movement's rainbow flag.

The other two were of Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill with tattoos, and Yelena Mizulina who also supports the banning of homosexual propaganda.

The portrait artist Konstantin Altunin has asked France for political asylum after his wife informed him of a police van waiting for him at home.  Donskoi is also scared.

This type of offense- insulting officials- can net up to a year in jail.  Donskoi plans on appealing to the European Court of Human Rights re. his right to free speech (which still doesn't fully exist in that country- see Pussy Riot):

"I don't know where to file a complaint because all the power structures work together," he said. "The judicial defers to the executive, and so on. This was a sanctioned move. So I hope I can find a lawyer who will help me lodge an application in Strasbourg. This is the only court that would consider this case, which is riddled with violations."

Breaking- Major Nidal Malik Hasan Sentenced To Death-

A military court just sentenced Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood Muslim terrorist, to death, which is exactly what he wanted.  Martyrdom.  

I have no problem with the death penalty if there is no doubt of guilt, but in this case, he should have been left to spend the rest of his life suffering in a wheelchair.

Why Do Christopher Lane and Delbert Belton Matter Less Than Trayvon Martin?

I find it interesting how very little has been said about the recent spate of senseless random murders that have been plaguing this country. The Trayvon Martin death and subsequent trial of George Zimmerman filled my Facebook feed daily. People were outraged. Yes, had Zimmerman done what he had been told-  not to pursue- Trayvon would still be alive. I wish that were the case.  He didn't deserve to die, but he wasn't the 'innocent' that everyone portrayed him to be, and we will never know exactly what went down the night Trayvon and George crossed paths during Zimmerman's neighbourhood watch patrol. But not a peep on Facebook about Australian baseball player Christopher Lane who also didn't deserve to die, and deserves as much, if not more, attention.

In Lane's case, three evil Oklahoman reprobates gunned him down while he was jogging because they were "bored" and just felt like they wanted to kill someone. Sure Christopher Lane was white, and two of his killers- 15-year-old James Edwards Jr. and 16-year-old Chancey Luna- are black, (Michael Jones, 17, who is being charged as an accessory looks like he might be bi-racial), and Edwards had posted "anti-white" statements on his Twitter feed, but this goes beyond race. It also goes beyond the gun control issue. If these kids had wanted to kill someone that night, and they didn't happen to have a gun, they would have found a way to accomplish their goal.  Look at the two Spokane, Washington teens who beat octegenarian World War II vet Delbert "Shorty" Belton so severely he later died. No gun, no knife, just their hands. They too were teens. Kenan Adams-Kinard and Demetrius Glenn, both sixteen, allegedly robbed Belton.

Who knows if race had anything to do with Christopher Lane or Delbert Belton being targeted. Maybe, maybe not. But I do know it has everything to do with raising a generation of conscienceless kids who have absolutely no moral compass. Kids who are influenced by the violent music they listen to and the violent video games they play. Kids who are obviously not taught to respect others.

Why isn't Barack Obama as outraged about these random killings as he was about Trayvon Martin's death?  Why isn't Jesse Jackson weighing in on the issue? Why do none of my Facebook 'friends'  seem to care about Belton and Lane? 

We need to address the issue of teen violence.

Miley Cyrus Goes From Disney To Porn In VMA Awards Performance

UPDATE: According to Huffington Post, the Will Smith family were allegedly reacting to Lady Gaga not Miley Cyrus. However, Rihanna and One Direction were unimpressed.

I didn't watch the VMA awards but there were plenty of horrified people, including Will Smith and family, who witnessed 20-year old Miley Cyrus' obscene antics.


Out of curiosity, I watched the section of video every one is talking about where Miley stripped down to her undies, and performed a duet with Robin Thicke, of his controversial "Blurred Lines" hit. 

I had pretty much the same reaction as Will Smith's family.

Australia's News.com has the video of her x-rated gyrations with Thicke, along with other photos.  You can watch her full performance on YouTube, including her song "We Can't Stop", which feels like a visit to hell- red lights, giant teddy bears and what look like devil horns on her head.

Stay classy Miley.

No wonder the world frowns on our so-called culture.

Women Should Never Leave The House, According To Bangladeshi Islamist

According to the Bangladeshi Islamist Emir of Hefajat-e-Islam - Allama Shah Ahmad Shafi- if women truly believe in the Quran they should stay at home. raise kids and never venture out, because Allah says so.

He goes on to explain that women are like tamarind- which makes you salivate. In fact, they're worse than tamarind, and since men have absolutely zero control over their lustful urges, women should hide away so as not to tempt men, including old men. Like the old fool himself, I guess.

Women have no need to leave the house, if they need food they should get their sons or husbands to go shopping. I guess if you're single you should starve.

In other words, stay at home, ignorant, barefoot and pregnant, and live like an indentured slave.

And women should only be educated until 4th or 5th grade, so she at least can do bookkeeping for her hubby.

He makes some other woefully ignorant remarks.

Hindu Extremists Destroy Paintings, Jewish Extremists Vandalize A Monastery

Muslims aren't the only ones with extremists in their midst. Most religions have them. Although people of other faiths might not have as great collective penchant for physically harming their fellow man as Muslims do (this is a fact- just read the news), they share the problem of destroying property that does not belong to them. Shameful, in its own right.

Egyptian Islamists might burn down and destroy Christian churches, but so do Jewish extremists. Although only minimal, it is thought that a fire bomb caused damage to the exterior of a monastery in Jerusalem.   And according to Luba Samir, police spokeswoman, "price tag" was also plastered on the outside of Beit Gemal Monastery.
In recent years, vandals have targeted mosques, churches, monasteries, dovish Israeli groups and even Israeli military bases to protest against what they perceive as the Israeli government's pro-Palestinian policies in the West Bank. Vandals call the attacks the "price tag" for the policies they oppose.

What began as small-scale attacks against Palestinians and their crops in the West Bank in response to Palestinian militant attacks or Israeli measures against settlements have since evolved into hate crimes inside Israel proper.

Last December, a Greek Orthodox monastery in Jerusalem was spray-painted with anti-Christian messages. Mosques have been burned and defaced with slogans insulting the Prophet Mohammed.
The attacks have been condemned, across the board, by Israeli leaders.

Then we have the Hindu extremists  (in this case, members of the youth group Bajrang Dal), who destroyed over 30 paintings being exhibited  at the Amdavad Ni Gufa Art Gallery in Ahmedabad in the Indian state of Gujarat.  An eyewitness said that some of the extremists shouted:

 ‘While Pakistan brutally kills our soldiers, we are busy promoting their art. They should be taught a lesson,.’
And yet, 6 of the artists exhibiting there- along with 11 Pakistanis- were Indian, and their paintings were also destroyed.

And we have Christian extremists, like the Westboro Baptist freaks, who might not destroy property or physically harm others, but who are just as vicious with their un-Christian-like actions.

Muslims Kill Muslims At Lebanese Mosques

More Muslim on Muslim violence, this time in Lebanon.

Car bombs outside two Tripoli Sunni mosques killed more than 43 people and wounded 500 or so.

It never ends.

UK Judge Tells Woman To Remove Burqa

Bravo to UK Judge Peter Murphy who told a burqa-clad woman that she must remove her burqa before submitting her plea. She was accused of intimidating a witness.

The judge said:

“While I obviously respect the right to dress in any way she wishes, certainly while outside the court, the interests of justice are paramount.

“I can’t, as a circuit judge, accept a plea from a person whose identity I am unable to ascertain."

“There is the principle of open justice and it can’t be subject to the religion of the defendant whether the principle is observed or not.” 

“I am not saying this because of the particular form of dress by this defendant I apply that to any form of dress that had the same issues.”

More details on Al Arabiya.

Swedish Women Campaign For Muslim Rights By Donning Hijabs

One Swedish Muslim woman allegedly has her hijab ripped off her head, and it prompts a campaign for Muslim rights.

Swedish women posted photos of themselves online in traditional Muslim headscarves this week, in solidarity with a woman apparently attacked for wearing such a head covering, reported the BBC on Thursday.

Using the hashtag #hijabuppropet, which translates to mean “hijab outcry,” a number of women in the country published pictures of themselves on Twitter and other social media websites.

The women taking part in the show of support were from various faiths and included some high profile campaigners; politicians Asa Romson and Veronica Palm as well as TV host Gina Dirawi.
The women said they wanted to draw attention to the “discrimination that affects Muslim women” in Sweden, reported the BBC.
Now I do not advocate violence- the woman apparently had to be taken to the hospital after having her head, allegedly, slammed into a car- but where is the outcry for all the attacks against the Jewish population in Sweden?  There are a slew of articles about the escalating violence against Jews, and nothing is being done about that.

Anti-Semitic attacks have tripled in Malmö, a Muslim enclave, since 2010.

Israeli Model Demands Roger Waters Stop Using Her Photo Over Israel Boycott

If you're going to boycott Israel, you better go all the way, especially if you ask others to do so. At least that's how Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli feels after Roger Waters- of the Brit band Pink Floyd- called on fellow musicians and singers to boycott her country. Although he enthusiastically promotes the boycotting of Israel, it appears he has no problem using an Israeli beauty's photo as part of his video art during his concerts. Once flattered, she has now demanded that stop.

“Roger Waters, you better take my picture off of the video art at your shows. If you’re boycotting — go all the way,” Refaeli tweeted early Wednesday in Hebrew.
Initially posted on the pro-Palestinian site Electronic Intifada, Water's wrote:

“I write to you now, my brothers and sisters in the family of Rock and Roll, to ask you to join with me, and thousands of other artists around the world, to declare a cultural boycott on Israel.
Not everyone has jumped on the boycott bandwagon, in spite of pressure from the Boycott Israel movement. The Pet Shop Boys went ahead and played there, as did Alicia Keys, after being told by author Alice Walker that she was headed for hell if she did.

Bradley Manning To Become Chelsea Manning

So, it seems that Bradley Edward Manning has decided to become Chelsea E. (Edwina, perhaps?) Manning and wants hormone therapy ASAP.  Since he's spending the next 35 years in Fort Leavenworth Prison (unless he's paroled in 7), that means we, the taxpayers, will be footing the bill.



Apparently he's been having gender identity issues since he was a kid. In a statement read on Today, Bradley NKA Chelsea said:

 "I want everyone to know the real me. I am Chelsea Manning. I am female.. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible." 
According to Bradley.. er.. Chelsea's attorney, although gender issue problems were a factor in releasing the tons of classified information to Wikileaks- information that ultimately endangered many individuals fighting for our freedom- it was really Manning's "strong moral compass" that prompted his actions.

Strong moral compass?  Hmmm.  Giving information to a foreign entity (Julian Assange) that could place many people in danger, isn't indicative of a strong moral compass. At least if he had expunged certain info before handing it over to Assange, I would feel a tad more sympathy for the guy, but nope.

His lawyer said he will do everything in his power to make sure Manning gets his hormone therapy.

Now, I don't care what he does with his body, but as I have said before, jail birds don't deserve special treatment, especially when the taxpayer is responsible for the cost.

Video: The Destruction Of Christian Churches and Businesses In Egypt By Muslim Brotherhood Activists

Human Rights Watch documents the destruction and looting of Christian churches, businesses, schools, and even an orphanage by Muslim Brotherhood activists and other Islamists all over Egypt. All of this in retaliation after police and security forces tried to break up the Muslim Brotherhood sit-ins in Cairo.

Two employees on a tourist boat restaurant who were hiding when it was attacked, were found dead. One was a Christian, the other was a Muslim.

No-one came to help before or after the attacks.

Saudi Journalist Blasts Conspiracy Theory Jews Involved In 9/11

And in this MEMRI video, Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi balks when asked if the Jews were involved in 9/11 and was it really Al Qaeda.  As editor-in-chief of Arab News, he refused to publish the conspiracy theory that was floating around all the Arab news agencies at the time, blaming Jews for 9/11. If Al Qaeda claimed responsibility, then why would it not be true, and that it was preposterous to think that  "40 or 50 Jews convened and agreed- "Menachem, don't go to work today because something's going down," referring to one of the theories out there that passed through his news desk.

It's not just the Arabs who maintain the theory that the Jews were behind 9/11, there are plenty of Westerners who do as well. And in this country.

Arabs Should Apologize For "Occupation" Of Spain, Says Saudi Author

Hani Nakshabandi, an obviously enlightened Saudi author, addresses (on a UAE TV show) his inflammatory comment about the need for Arabs to apologize for the "occupation" of Spain (after the Umayyad conquests), and his belief that everything written in their history books should be reexamined.

"We present Europe as if it had been immersed in darkness and ignorance, until we came along and ushered in an era of light."
He then mentions that there are villages in the Kingdom with no electricity, and:

 "Wherever you go in the Arab world- in Egypt, in Morocco- you see villages where people still live like cavemen, yet you say that we ushered civilization into Europe?!"
He doesn't mention (that I know of) that there are a boatload of them who still act like cavemen, as well. All the violence in that region is a testament to that.

The interviewer, however, represents how most in the Arab world feel about Muslim imperialism, and the "occupation" of the conquered lands. He tells  Nakshabandi that Islam spread there during the Dark Ages in Europe and asks him about Cordoba. Part of his reply:

 "What kind of civilization did the Arabs leave behind in Andalusia? What did they leave there?"

Nothing, apparently. He says that even the Umayyad Mosque (like the one in Turkey) was originally a church.

This man at least sees the hypocrisy of those who balk at "occupation" (I assume he's referring to Palestine) and think it was perfectly all right for the Muslims to invade and conquer Europe.

Fake Deaths And Injuries In Egypt Aired On Al-Jazeera

No doubt there have been casualties in Egypt- that happens when two opposing sides engage in violence as they battle for power. But for a news outlet to stage something to further the agenda of one of those 'sides' is reprehensible. Raymond Ibrahim posted an interesting video demonstrating how some Arab media outlets do just that.

Al-Jazeera videotaped a scene showing a man bandaged and bleeding.  He looks like he is either dead or close to it. In the background you hear a woman screaming, apparently blasting the Egyptian military for "supposedly killing peaceful Brotherhood protesters."  We are to assume that this man was one of those injured or killed by the military. However, at about 8 seconds into the video below, as someone is about to lift the man's shirt to inspect what one would assume to be bullet wounds, you will see the 'unconscious' or 'dead' man raise his left leg and surreptitiously shove the person's hand away, while his eyes and the rest of his body remain immobile.  At :24 seconds the kicking is repeated several times.

How much of this is going on?


Video- Aussie Sheik Asks Allah To Kill All Buddhists and Hindus And Other Stuff

In this video- Australian Muslim Sheik Sharif Hussein blames the Jews' influence on "presidents, ministers or leaders of secular pan-Arab movements" for creating strife "within Muslim societies."  Right, the Western infidels have caused all that Muslim on Muslim violence all over the Middle East and elsewhere.

He also claims British and American "Crusader troops" aided by Australia, raped tens of thousands of women in Iraq. And because of that, he believes former Prime  Minister John Howard should have (and would have had Muslims had any say) been tried as a war criminal for razing Afghanistan and Iraq to the ground. As far as I know both those countries are still standing, and just as well they don't have any say. 

Then he warns "enemy of Allah" Barack Obama, who kisses "the shoes and feet of the Jews,"  that some day he will be "trampled upon by the pure feet of the Muslims." 

Then he asks Allah to kill all the Hindus and Buddhists.

Charming.  And this guy is allowed to live in Australia?  These types need to have their posteriors deported back to where they came from.

(He's not anywhere on Google, so not sure if this is actually the correct name.)

Pakistani Muslim Cleric Acquitted In Blasphemy Case

Remember Rimsha Masih, that 14-year-old Pakistani Christian girl with a learning disability who was accused of blasphemy by a local cleric, jailed for three weeks and threatened with death?  And it was later discovered that, according to witnesses, it was actually the cleric, Hafiz Mohammed Khalid Chishti, who had allegedly burned pages from the Quran himself and placed the blame on Masih?   That same cleric, who admittedly has tried to get Christians to move out of his area of town, has been set free. All charges dropped.

His lawyer, Wajid Ali Gilani said:

"The court has dismissed all charges against Khalid Chishti and has acquitted him in this case," Mr Gilani told AFP.
Mr Gilani said the prosecution had failed to prove the charges while all the witnesses had withdrawn their accusations.
Is that surprising? No.

Thankfully the young girl and her family were given safe-haven in Canada.

Cartoon That Clarifies The Egyptian Crisis

Tennessee's Chattanooga Times Free Press published this cartoon.

It very simply clarifies what the whole Egyptian revolution is all about.  After toppling the autocratic- albeit mostly secular- rule of Hosni Mubarak, the battle is now raging between those who want Democracy, and those Islamist/Muslim Brotherhood types who want a Theocracy.

The secular Egyptians believed that Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood would rule with a moderate hand. That proved to be an incredibly foolish mistake. Now they are all suffering the consequences.

I doubt either side is going to give up.

Jesse Jackson, Jr. Gets $8,500 Month Disability For 'Mood Disorder'

How convenient.  Corrupt Illinois Democrat Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., who will spend the next 2 1/2 years in jail for spending $750,000 of his campaign funds to buy himself mounted elk heads, fancy jewelry and other stuff, conveniently developed a 'mood disorder' which qualifies him for government disability pay. Yes, indeedy, Jesse will get a check for $8,700 per MONTH for his so-called mental issues.  I know people who deserve to be on disability who never qualified, and yet he gets that amount while in jail for corruption? He will also get some of his federal pension. $45,000.00

Something is seriously wrong with the system!

Mama Jackson Jr.,  Sandi, will also spend some time in the clinker for helping cover up her husband's fraud. Nice example to set for their offspring.

By the way, Jesse made it to Judicial Watch's list of the 'Top Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians'.

Judicial Watch has more on the sudden onset of his mental issues. Click here.

Obama Played Cards During Bin Laden Raid, According To Reggie Love

According to Reggie Love, Barack Obama's former "body man" or whatever you want to call him, he and the President played cards while the Osama Bin Laden raid was going down.  Reggie claims Obama told him:

 "I can't watch this entire thing." "Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [President Obama] was like, 'I'm not going to be down there, I can't watch this entire thing,' We must have played 15 games of spades."

Really? Wow, how embarrassing.

But it raises the question, did he play "Old Maid" during Benghazi?

NBC's Lester Holt Discusses "Unintended Consequences" Of Obamacare

NBC's Lester Holt talks about some of the "unintended consequences" of  Obamacare.

Promise: Insurance for all.

Truth: No insurance and paycuts for many working for small businesses. So good luck getting the funds to pay for insurance or the fines if you don't.

From Subway fast food workers and professors at universities, people are starting to experience those unintended consequences.

Of course, the Obama administration is in total denial.

Even unions (die-hard liberals) admit there are problems.

Way to go.

More Violence In Egypt- Pro-Morsi Supporters Torch Three Churches, Journalists Killed

Violence in the Middle East is never gone for very long. Egypt is back in the throes of it, and pro-Mohammed Morsi supporters are taking it out on the Coptic Christian minorities.

Supporters of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Mursi torched three churches in central Egypt on Wednesday in reprisal attacks as police dispersed demonstrations in Cairo, reports said.

The assailants threw firebombs at Mar Gergiss church in Sohag, a city with a large community of Coptic Christians who comprise up to 10 percent of Egypt’s 84 million people, causing it to burn down, the official MENA news agency said.

Security officials told AFP that another two churches were attacked in el-Menia province, leaving them partially damaged by fire.

Coptic rights group the Maspero Youth Union reported the same information, accusing Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood movement of “waging a war of retaliation” against the country’s Christians.

Meanwhile, there have been many wounded and killed, on both sides, including 61-year-old Sky News cameraman Mick Deane, and 26-year-old Dubai reporter for XPRESS Habiba Ahmed Abd Elaziz. No-one seems to know who is responsible for their deaths.

Video: Danish Muslims Fighting In Syria For Caliphate

Danish Muslims are fighting in Syria for the Caliphate. This one disparages all the free stuff they get in Denmark while growing up, and calls upon his Danish brothers and sisters to join the fight.


Iranian Councilor Barred For Being Too Pretty and Sexy For Office

Hassan Rowhani, duly elected president of Iran, promised change in his country, especially for women.  One of his campaign promises was:

“Discrimination against women will not be tolerated.”
He also said in a campaign debate:
“I will form a women’s affairs ministry to return their trampled rights to them.”
But good luck trying to find one female member of his cabinet.

And the government of this so-called champion of women's rights has barred Nina Siakhali Moradi, city councilor for the city of Qazvin, from taking office because she's too pretty and  "too sexy."  Even though Moradi was fairly elected, the religious hardliners overturned it.

Even with more than 10,000 votes in the June election, putting her 14th out of 163 candidates and winning her a council seat, the 27-year-old engineer and website designer had her political career cut short because she was deemed too attractive to take up the post.
“We don’t want a catwalk model on the council,” a senior official in Qazvin told local press.
Moradi ran under the slogan “Young ideas for a young future,” pushing for better women’s rights in Qazvin, the restoration of the old city and greater youth involvement in town planning. She had been vetted and approved as a candidate by Iran’s judiciary and intelligence services. Her liberal views appeared popular with the electorate, The Times reported.
And  even though she adhered to strict Islamic dress code (full hijab with no hair showing) in her campaign posters, the conservatives complained to the governor calling them  “vulgar and anti-religious,” and anti-Islamic.




Others took umbrage with the fact that her headquarters

... became a gathering place for local young people, whose behavior and clothing provoked criticism from her opponents, mostly older conservative men.
The complaint was challenged but ultimately upheld. She was disqualified for not “observing the Islamic norms.”

She wasn't the only female candidate targeted. Maryam Nakhostin-Ahmadi and Shahla Atefeh both were detained and questioned and had their campaign posters removed.

Boy Praying To Obama Sparks Outrage

There's a viral video out there of a young boy praying TO Barack Obama that has garnered much criticism. I don't fault the lad, I blame his stupid mother who decided to upload the video to YouTube, consequently exposing him to anger and ridicule. 

The boy Stephen and mother Regina Young call it "Prayer For President Barack Obama", but it's more like a prayer To Obama. Regina should have instructed her cute, eager young son that it's okay to pray for someone you admire, but not pray to him.

As you can see in the video, (which still happens to be on YouTube in spite of all the negative comments and the 2,507 'dislikes' versus the 85 'likes'), the young boy bows his head, closes his eyes, and then launches into this:

"Barack Obama, thank you for doing everything and all the kind stuff. Thank you for all the stuff that you helped us with. Thank you for taking the courage and responsibility for everything you've done for us. God has given you a special power and you are going to handle it just fine. You are good, Barack Obama and you are great and when you get older, you will be able to do great things. Love, Stephen,"
Stephen then lifts his arms and shouts "Barack Obama!"

In spite of the fact that many have endowed Obama with Messiah-like qualities- including actor Jamie Foxx who called Obama "Our Lord and Savior"- Barack is not God.

44 Muslims Gunned Down While Praying In Nigeria

Boko Haram Islamic extremists usually target Christians in Nigeria, but this time their targets were fellow Muslims. They allegedly killed 44 people at a mosque in Nigeria. They were praying at the time.

Suspected Islamic militants wearing army fatigues gunned down 44 people praying at a mosque in northeast Nigeria, while another 12 civilians died in an apparently simultaneous attack nearby, security agents said today. [snip]

It was not immediately clear why this particular mosque—located in Konduga town, some 22 miles outside Maiduguri, the capital of Nigeria's Borno state—was targeted, but Boko Haram has in the past attacked mosques whose clerics have spoken out against religious extremism. The group also has attacked Christians outside churches and teachers and schoolchildren, as well as government and military targets. The news came as journalists received a video featuring Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, who gloats over recent attacks, threatens more, and even says his group is now strong enough to go after the United States.

'Digital Dementia' A Problem With Computer Overuse

Digital dementia?  Apparently that's the latest mental disorder tied to overuse of all the latest new-fangled gadgets we can't seem to live without. Although a global problem, South Korea is battling a major problem with the 35 and under crowd, where a whopping 95% of the population has access to the Internet.

 There, young people in their late 20s and early 30s regularly show up at clinics exhibiting many of the symptoms usually associated with mental disorders in the elderly. Those symptoms include memory problems, an inability to concentrate, and sleeplessness.
The young patients' difficulties, the doctors say, come from high exposure levels to digital screen media, ranging from televisions to computers to game consoles to smart phones. And while no one has yet calculated how many young Koreans are affected, the phenomenon is adding fuel to the already contentious debate between neuroscientists over the health risks of using digital media.

The rest here.

Most of us spend far too much time online. With blogging and googling, twitter and Facebook, we can spend hours upon hours glued to our computer screens, IPhones, and other portable methods of accessing the Internet. I know I do, and it's definitely not healthy. South Koreans are so obsessed with the Internet that an MP, Lee Joung Sun, proposed a bill several years ago to restrict the amount of time one can spend playing on-line games. They also wanted to restrict teens' access to Internet Cafes and games.

They probably would have had no need to take such drastic measures had it not been for a slew of bizarre crimes that were linked to Internet addiction, including several murders and deaths. One 28-year-old man, in 2005, died of a heart attack after he played 50 hours straight (without food or water) a game called StarCraft at some local Internet cafe.

Then there was the 22-year-old guy who killed his mother over her complaints about his game playing and immediately returned to a cafe to finish the game. Or the man who got so angered with another player he attacked the man after he tracked him down via the game's chat room.

Then the most tragic and bizarre case involved a married couple, 41-year-old Kim Yu-Chul and 25-year-old Choi Mi-sun, who starved their three-month-old baby girl to death because they were so hooked on a computer game, get this, that involved raising a 'virtual' child. The couple had met on-line, through a chat site, and spent as many as twelve hours a day playing the game, with an occasional stop home to feed the baby powdered milk.

According to the Yonhap news agency, South Korean police said the couple had become obsessed with raising a virtual girl called Anima in the popular role-playing game Prius Online. The game, similar to Second Life, allows players to create another existence for themselves in a virtual world, including getting a job, interacting with other users and earning an extra avatar to nurture once they reach a certain level.

"The couple seemed to have lost their will to live a normal life because they didn't have jobs and gave birth to a premature baby," Chung Jin-Won, a police officer, told Yonhap. "They indulged themselves in the online game of raising a virtual character so as to escape from reality, which led to the death of their real baby."

Sadly, Kim's parents had been taking care of the baby until 2 weeks prior to her death, when the baby was returned to the couple.

Air Freshener Withdrawn From Ukraine After Complaints About Brand Colors

It doesn't take much these days for people to take offense to one thing or another. This time it's Ukrainians and a toilet freshener. What would offend them you might ask? The branding colors of the BrefDuo Stripes freshner. They're blue and yellow. The same color of their flag. And Sweden's. Though I don't see Swede's complaining.

Now you might think they would be royally pissed off had it been, say, a Russian company that manufactures the toilet freshner, but it's actually a German company, and enough Urkainians have complained that Henkel pulled it from Ukrainian shelves, and issued an apology on its Facebook Page:

First of all, we wish to stress again that we are sorry if people feel offended by the design of our new Bref Duo Stripes. The color blue, intended to stand for water and hygiene, and the yellow color for lemon scent are common for this type of products. However, we have carefully listened to the comments of our consumers in Ukraine as we listen to our consumers in all countries in which we operate and take their concerns very seriously. We respect our consumers' feelings and have therefore taken the appropriate steps to immediately discontinue the distribution of the product in its current color design. We have also cancelled the respective TV ad. We apologize for any irritation our product may have caused.
Now I thought this might be a joke (am not going to fall for anything bogus, again!), but there is a TV ad, and enough complaints on the Henkel FB page to warrant taking this seriously. There are even calls for boycott.



Sigh,

UPDATE- Bogus: "Impeach Obama" Peaceful Protesters Arrested In Eureka, CA

UPDATE 8/11/13: It's not often I get fooled by a bogus news report from satire sites like The Onion. The reports are usually so extremely outrageous that a little googling reveals them to be bogus.  I got sloppy on this one. I did question it, but it wasn't so out of the realm of possibility that I didn't bother to research further. I did add "allegedly" and ended with "if this is indeed true," which allows for the possibility the incident did not occur. However, as it turns out, the news site I sourced- National Report- is nothing more than an Onion-wannabee, and a pathetic attempt at satire. My apologies.  The Impeach Obama protests are real.

Six "Impeach Obama" protesters in Eureka, California have allegedly been arrested after being physically and verbally abused. Whether you agree or not with the sentiment, they have a right to peacefully protest. This was part of a nationwide "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" campaign, which I was unaware of.

County and city officials in the area have not yet released a statement on the event or the names of those arrested. Communications have been difficult and local media outlets are scrambling for more details.

Passing motorists stated that the arrests took part at the 101/255 exchange just North of downtown at around 7:45pm PST. Local resident Artie Campbell was driving home with his family when 8 police cars drove past him and stopped on the 255 bridge. Artie had this to say of the incident, “I haven’t seen anything like it in my life. The protesters seem to have been minding their business and those police officers did not appear to be local guys.”

 When asked to describe the victims, Mr. Campbell replied “two of them were older ladies and one of them appeared to be a teenage boy. The other three were heavier set middle-aged white men.”

According to Campbell, the officers were taking turns ridiculing the victims and at one point even pepper-sprayed two of the older men before placing them in flex-tie restraints and escorting them to nearby squad cars. Artie referred to the scene as “modern-day fascism” and suggested the officers may have been federal agencts sent directly from the Obama Administration in an attempt to silence opposition.

Food Stamp Leech In La Jolla, California

Meet Jason, an unemployed musician, and beach bum by choice.  He lives in upscale La Jolla, California, owner of a shiny, new-looking black truck, leeches off friends, family and girlfriends, and is the recipient of $200 worth of food stamps per month.  Now, granted, $200.00 per month isn't that much, but there are people who truly need it. Jason does not. And Jason doesn't give a damn that the taxpayer is footing the bill for the sushi and lobster that he buys with his EBT card.

Muslims Not Amused With Atheist Dawkin's Comment On Muslim Nobel Prize Winners

Richard Dawkins seems to have upset many (and not just Muslims) with a Twitter post regarding the dearth of Muslim Nobel Prize winners. The hardcore atheist said:

 “..all the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.”
Apparently he was called everything from racist to Islamophobe (the usual name calling), and defended his comment with, basically, the truth: Muslims "aren't a race."

".. What they have in common is a religion. Rather than Trinity, would you prefer the comparison with Jews? Google it.”
Al Arabiya has responses from both Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Zimbabwe To Sell Uranian To Iran - Update

UPDATE 8/12/13:  Zimbabwe officials deny any such deal with Iran. If you can believe them.

Word has it that Zimbabwe is planning on shipping uranium to Iran.  

Gift Chimanikire, the Zimbabwean Deputy Mining Minister, told the Times newspaper that a memorandum of understanding had been signed to export uranium to Tehran, a move likely to prompt alarm in western capitals, particularly in Washington.
[snip]
A report compiled by the United Nations' nuclear watchdog more than two years ago warned of such an outcome, detailing a visit from Iran's then Foreign and Co-operative Ministers to Zimbabwe to strike a deal, with the Iranians also sending engineers to assess uranium deposits.

The rest here.

So much for sanctions.

France Deports Tunisian Islamist Who Threatened Journalists

 After its infamous capitulation during WWII, there might still be hope for France as it continues to grow cojones by deporting those who threaten the country.
France on Friday arrested and deported a Tunisian Islamist suspected of wanting to harm two reporters, the interior ministry said.

The 36-year-old from a Paris suburb was known as being “close” to radical Islam and had “several times shown willingness to take part in the jihad in Syria” with a group linked to Al-Qaeda named Jabhat al Nusra, said the ministry in a statement.

The man was allegedly “implicated in several plans of violence notably relating to two journalists”.

“In light of these elements, this individual constituted a real threat to state and public security,” the ministry said.

Quoted in the statement, Interior Minister Manuel Valls reiterated “France's engagement in fighting terrorism and that people who advocate violence will not be tolerated”.

Back in 2010 they threw out Egyptian hate preacher, Ali Ibrahim al-Sudani. Of course, that was the second time they had deported him.

"This individual very recently reappeared on our territory despite an expulsion order in his name, carried out in January," Hortefeux said in a statement of the former imam of the Hamza mosque, at Pantin outside Paris.

"This hate preacher has repeatedly said violently hostile things about the West that are totally against our society's values," he said.
Apparently no-one knew how he arrived back in France.

France has been deporting extremists for a while, though.  Between 2001 and 2010 they rid themselves of a whopping 129 of them, and last year they kicked out a young Moroccan extremist who was inciting violence.

Unfortunately, I'm sure this will be an ongoing activity, but at least they are doing it. Too bad England doesn't have the balls to do the same thing.  It took the U.K. years before it finally booted Abu Qatada  back to Jordan.

Charitable Hospitals To Be Fined For Treating Uninsured Under Obamacare

60 percent of American hospitals are apparently nonprofit, many of those charitable- which means if you are poor and uninsured they won't kick you out the door if you are sick and in need.  Under Obamacare that might change.  Since they are nonprofit, they could be subject to hefty fines, and special scrutiny if they continue to treat those without insurance, so they might be forced to switch to for-profit status. 

Why would the feds do this?  No incentive for those patients who get treated for free to buy health insurance.

A new provision in Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code, which takes effect under Obamacare, sets new standards of review and installs new financial penalties for tax-exempt charitable hospitals, which devote a minimum amount of their expenses to treat uninsured poor people
[Snip]

“It requires tax-exempt hospitals to do a community needs survey and file additional paperwork with the IRS every three years. This is to prove that the charitable hospital is still needed in their geographical area — ‘needed’ as defined by Obamacare and overseen by IRS bureaucrats,” said John Kartch, spokesman for Americans for Tax Reform.

“Failure to comply, or to prove this continuing need, could result in the loss of the hospital’s tax-exempt status. The hospital would then become a for-profit venture, paying income tax — hence the positive revenue score” for the federal government, Kartch said. “Obamacare advocates turned over every rock to find as much tax money as possible.”

With more Americans insured, charitable hospitals might not meet the requirements for non-profit status. Of course, for-profit hospitals will create more tax revenue for the feds, so we know why they're pushing this forward.

Those 'poor' people will no longer have a free resource for emergency health care, they will be forced to buy health insurance (which will be costly, or at least much more than 'free') or face a huge fine. Well, they got what they voted for.

Watch for hospital costs to skyrocket.

Huffpo Predicts Perverse #Twogging Will Be The Next Internet Dance Craze

Twerking has become the latest dance fad for those, including Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus, who think shaking their booty is somehow sexy. People have flooded Youtube with videos of their gyrating butts. But it's not sexy, it's obscene. Now "Twerking" has devolved into a horrifyingly disgusting fad that the Huffington Post has coined  #twogging. Yes, it's #twerking on or with dogs. Huffpo seems to think it's funny and has compiled a video of young women twogging away with their canine friends, but it's basically one step from bestiality, and Huffpo somehow thinks this is newsworthy.

In the above video we have compiled several examples of this new trend. If, after watching the video, you feel compelled to try it out yourself, we encourage you practice safe #twogging by only performing for canines you have a previous relationship with and are sure will not be startled into aggression by having an ass shaken in their face.

I refuse to post the video here, it was so appalling, so I am just linking to Huffpo's article, where you can see the video for yourself, if you so choose. They predict it will be the next Internet craze, and, sadly, they are probably right.

This is why our country is looked upon as a sick and perverse nation.

Female Afghan Politican Injured, Young Daughter Killed By Taliban In Ambush

Another female politician attacked in Afghanistan by the Taliban. It's Ramadan, the holiest of Muslim holidays and they still shed blood.  

Senator Rouh Gul Khirzad was driving on the main highway to spend Eid al-Fitr at her home in Nimroz province when her convoy was ambushed en route from Kabul. She was seriously wounded along with her husband, son, and one daughter.  Her 8-year-old daughter and their bodyguard were not so lucky- both were killed during the ambush.

Khirzad has been a senator  in the upper house since the end of 2010. She heads the defense and internal security commission. 

Hanifa Safi, another politican, was killed a year ago when a bomb in her car exploded. Her husband and daughter were injured. There have been more who have been targeted.

Muslim Jailbirds To Get Eid Treats In The UK

Over 400 Muslim criminals across England are getting Eid al-Fitr treats to celebrate the end of Ramadan, thanks to the London-based Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC). In their care-package they'll be getting:

 ..halal sweets, organic tooth chews, pocket-sized prayer books and Eid cards that prisoners can send to their loved ones.
What the heck are organic tooth chews?

Abid Choudhry decided last year that even jail inmates deserved something special to help them feel less "isolated from the community" and the "religious calender as it were,"  never mind they're in prison for a reason and not at some holiday camp. Maybe those 400 or so prisoners- of an estimated 11,000 plus inmates in British jails- aren't hard core murderers or rapists, but they still committed some kind of criminal act that landed them in jail, so how religious can they be?

They didn't cost much- $3.00 or so per package- and they're not funded by the British taxpayer, since they were paid through donations made to the IHRC, but still.  We need to stop pandering to religious jailbirds of all faiths.

Spanish Pedophile Rapist That Morocco Released Is Back In Jail In Spain

Daniel Galvin Mina, who was unexpectedly pardoned and released by Morocco's King, even though he raped 11 children, is back in jail after he was re-arrested thanks to Interpol.

Spain had requested the pardon of 18 Spaniards, and the transfer of Vina- along with 29 other criminals- to spend the rest of their sentences in Spain. Vina had been given a 30 year sentence. Somehow Morocco messed up and released them all.

No-one knows where the 29 others are.

How disappointing is this.  American soldiers being hired as hitmen for the Mexican drug cartels.

22-year-old Michael Apodaca was jailed for life for killing a US informant for the Juarez drug cartel- for $5,000.

Apparently, some soldiers are being recruited by gangs after they sign up for military service, others are gang members who join simply to get the training.

Emirati Couple To Spend 1 Month In Jail For Kissing

Dubai has nothing better to do than jail couples for kissing. Some man who must have been peeking inside a dark-tinted car, claimed to have witnessed a 32-year-old Emirati banker and her 19-year-old colleague kissing, he then ran off to report the alleged activity to the police.

They will have to spend one month in jail.

Story here.

Of course it's not the first time someone has been jailed in Dubai for kissing. Back in 2010, a 26-year-old British woman, Charlotte Adams, spent 23 days in jail for what she claims was a mere peck on the cheek (and I believe her). She was finally allowed home after a harrowing time in a Dubai jail with murderers and prostitutes. Adams did admit she flirted with 25-year-old British ex-pat Ayman Najafi, but insists she just gave him "a peck on the cheek". In fact, she had some harsh words for fellow Brits Michelle Palmer and Vince Acors who were arrested and jailed for having sex on the beach, back in 2008.

"I thought they were stupid to behave like that in a Muslim city. Everyone was affected by what it meant. You'd have been stupid to ignore it," she said.

But she denies that her conduct with Mr Najafi compared to that of Miss Palmer and Mr Acors. "I may have pecked him on the cheek at one point but we weren't drunk and I would never have snogged someone in the middle of a crowded restaurant – especially in Dubai," she told The Mail on Sunday.

Apparently she was very fond of Dubai- although I have no idea why- and said she would miss it, though she was relieved to be home. The tattle-tale 38-year-old woman in the restaurant who reported the couple to the police told two very different stories

"She told the police that she saw them kissing, while she told the prosecution that her children saw them," he said, adding the defense is arguing that the couple only kissed on the cheek "as a greeting" which is allowed.
Didn't seem to make a difference. They were also charged with drinking alcohol, to which they pleaded guilty, and Charlotte was fined £200, and then deported. She's not allowed to return.

I wouldn't be caught dead in Dubai, not because I'd have a problem sticking to their strict religious laws, I don't drink so no biggy; I would never visit on principle.

Anti-Obama Viral Video By Egyptian Belly Dancer

Egyptian singer/belly dancer/satirist Sama Al-Masri (Elmasry) has another viral video on her hand. Not afraid to show her disdain for Mohammed Morsi, she's now tackling Barack Obama and U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson for their support of the Muslim Brotherhood. She's also not too fond of Turkey and Israel.

It should be noted that Sama was secretly wed to a Salafist MP, Anwar al-Balkimi (or Balkimy) aka the "nose job MP", until she discovered he was married with kids. Al-Balkimi denied the marriage, then again he also denied having a nose job, which is a major no-no in Islam. All rather odd since she so hates Islamists.

FL Christian Puppeteer Jailed For Child Porn

There are sickos and hypocrites in every religion including Christianity. Take 58-year-old Ronald William Brown, a Christian ventriloquist/puppeteer based in Pinellas County, Florida, who was arrested last year and just convicted and sentenced to 20 years for possession of child porn, along with probation for life.

Ron is a pervert of particularly skeevy proportions. Homeland Security agents also found photos of bound and gagged and dead children, and he admitted to fantasies of cannibalism. Yes, Ronny confessed to discussing with Michael Arnett, another "alleged child cannibalism enthusiast,"  about "killing, dismembering and eating" a boy at the Gold Coast Church, and "..'snuffing' children as young as two," all the while purporting to be a good Christian man. He often fed kids pizza and drove them to his church. He even performed a puppet act on the Christian children's show "Joy Junction" (he looks young so it was probably quite some years ago) where puppet 'Marty' confesses that some evil kids tried to get him to look at "dirty pictures," but that he resisted because it was spiritually wrong, and even quotes from the Bible.

It seems Ron had a penchant for kiddies dating back to 1998 when some boy's underwear was found in his car after he was stopped for a traffic violation.

Twenty years doesn't seem much for someone who discussed killing and eating children, but he was not convicted on that charge.

They better keep an eye on this man when he's eventually released, if he survives, because who is to say he won't some day follow through on his fantasies.

Czech "Pastafarian" Photographed With Collander On Head For National ID

For a little levity, there's a Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster (CFSM), the followers are called Pastafarians, and adherents like to have their identity photos taken with colanders (strainers or sieves, if you prefer) perched on their heads. Some countries are actually accommodating the demands of these jokesters.

Lukas Novy, from Brno in the Czech Republic, is a Pastafarian who was allowed to get his official  ID card- with his colander headgear- because of religious equality laws in that country.





According to Pavel Zarna, City Hall spokesman:

 'The application complies with the laws of the Czech Republic where headgear for religious or medical reasons is permitted if it does not hide the face.'
A little background on the Flying Spaghetti Monsters from Daily Mail UK:

According to its tongue-in-cheek website their 'only dogma ... is the rejection of dogma'.

Members claim to believe that an invisible alien made of spaghetti and meatballs created the universe after 'drinking heavily.'

In 2005, physics graduate Bobby Henderson, 24, from Oregon State wrote a letter about a 'Flying Spaghetti Monster' as a protest against the Kansas State Board of Education's decision to allow the teaching of intelligent fesign as an alternative to evolution in public schools.

The 'religion' arose as a response to pressure for American schools to teach the theory known as intelligent design, which some Christians favour as an alternative to natural selection and evolution. The theory argues life must have been helped to develop by an unseen power.

The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster wrote to the Kansas School Board asking for the Pastafarian version of intelligent design to be taught to schoolchildren as a way of criticising the intelligent design campaigners.

By professing belief in a supernatural entity composed of pasta and meatballs, Henderson called on 'Pastafarianism' to be given equal time in science classrooms alongside Christian theory.

CFSM claims to have thousands of Pastafarians around the world.

You can become a Pastafarian minister for a mere $20.00.

Iran's Khamenei Issues New Anti-Baha'i Edict

Iran's religious head honcho Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is making things even worse for followers of the banned Bahai faith, if that's at all possible. They're already severely persecuted for their religious beliefs- they are jailed for no reason, and earlier this year were banned from access to higher education.  Now Khameini is telling Iranians to "avoid all dealings" with the Baha'is.  Many fear this will lead to more arrests.

Khamenei was said to have called Baha'i adherents "deviant and misleading."  Ironic, since Sunnis consider Shiites (of which Khamenei is one) to be "deviant."

Bahrain Using Fake Twitter Accounts To Track Dissidents

Bahrain's latest way of tracking down dissidents and those critical of the monarchy: creating fake Twitter accounts of opposition leaders. It's essentially a form of entrapment. 

In Bahrain, all it takes is clicking on the wrong link to end up in jail. A new report prepared by Bahrain Watch, an activist organization critical of the ruling monarchy, details how the Bahraini government creates fake Twitter accounts to reveal the identity of anonymous anti-regime tweeps -- and then prosecutes them on the basis of "secret evidence."

Here's how it works. Dozens of shell accounts -- many designed to impersonate top figures within the Bahraini opposition -- have tweeted links to anonymous Twitter users who comment on Bahrain. The links include spyware that reveals the user's IP address, which the government can use to identify the name and street address of the person behind the account. From there, it's simple police work: The government can raid the house and build a case against those living there, usually on charges of "insulting the king." In total, Bahrain Watch found that more than 120 accounts were targeted by the government in this way.

More on this story.

No Slutbag "Interns Wanted" by Anthony Weiner Campaign Posters

You'd think that Anthony Weiner would have dropped out by now after revelations of more of his 'Carlos Danger' sexting were exposed, and the subsequent drop in popularity. But no, he's still hoping he'll become the next NY city mayor.  I still have no clue why people were even thinking of voting for him to begin with, considering his previous conduct. He's a total pig, but that doesn't seem to matter to some. And he doesn't seem to care that he's the latest fodder for late night. 

Even the web site Funny or Die has jumped on the Weiner-wagon creating  fake "interns wanted" posters that were plastered around Soho.



Prerequisites:

No slutbags, no snitches, no cops and no cameras.

The poster pokes fun at Barbara Morgan, Weiner's communications director, who blasted former intern Olivia Nuzzi, who she called an "effing" slutbag.

Have some dignity and give up Weiner!

Moroccans Protest Pardon of Spanish Pedophile

A sixty-something Spanish pedophile, Daniel Galvin Vina, who raped 11 children (from 4 to 15) was pardoned and released by King Mohammed VI.  No wonder Moroccans are hitting the streets in protest.

The King claims ignorance, but is investigating how this could have happened. How can  you not know who you are pardoning and releasing back into the world. These countries will pardon serial pedophiles and keep bloggers who insult their leaders jailed.

Apparently, pedophiles seem to be gravitating to Morocco.

Muslim Miss Malaysia World Finalists Banned From Competition

Malaysia considers itself a moderate Muslim nation but it still adheres to a 1996 fatwa banning women from participating in beauty queen pageants. As a result, four Muslim women who were vying for a spot at the Miss World 2013 competition in Bali were not allowed to compete in the Miss Malaysia World pageant finals.

Pageant organiser Datuk Anna Lim said the Federal Territories Islamic Department (Jawi) informed her of its decision yesterday.

“Jawi director Datuk Che Mat Che Ali called me to confirm that the women cannot take part in the pageant,” Lim said.

“While the other finalists are geared for the contest, the Muslim women are left with shattered dreams. I took one look at Sara (Amelia Bernard) when she walked in today and I knew the poor girl was stressed by the controversy.

Apparently, it was a last minute decision that left the four girls devastated.

Sara, one of the contestants who was met by The Malay Mail yesterday, said she was upset with the entire fiasco.

After attending the pageant week programme at Corus Hotel, she was visibly disappointed by the outcome.

“I am sad I cannot join the others as I have always dreamt of being a beauty queen, but I have to accept the decision.”

The 20-year-old, who was the only contestant present as a guest during the training session which started yesterday, said she has yet to decide on her next course of action.

Sara had to deactivate her Facebook account because of the nasty comments she was receiving from Muslim hardliners. She believes it's because she was more vocal about her disappointment with the decision.

Sara, along with Wafa Johanna De Korte, Miera Sheikh, Kathrina Ridzuan and Sara Amelia Bernard were the four 'disqualified' Muslim finalists.

Not only were their dreams shattered at the last minute (since they somehow reached the finals without being banned), they are now also being investigated for 'insulting Islam', after criticizing the decision.

Even though there will be no bikini section during the competition, in order to not offend Indonesia- the host country- there is still a dearth of Muslim countries participating.

Bangladeshi Woman Arrested In Muslim/Hindu "Lesbian" Case

This story out of Bangladesh couldn't be more bizarre. An inter-faith, underage, lesbian same-sex marriage, along with allegations- by the father of the Muslim 22-year-old Sanjida Akter- of  Jinn (evil spirit) possession.  According to her dad, she has eloped before, and he blames a Jinn for turning his daughter into a lesbian at age 9.

Apparently, Sanjida and the 16-year-old Hindu girl met 6 months ago when Sanjida was hired as a tutor. She was fired when the teen's dad noticed they were getting a tad too close:

"I did not like her attitude and told my wife not to allow her at home."
That's when his daughter disappeared.  However, he doesn't buy the homosexual angle, and is convinced his daughter was abducted.

"..[he] claims the relationship is not a homosexual one, but rather a ploy by the older woman to extort money from his family by seducing his daughter.
[snip]
"Suddenly I received a call demanding 300,000 taka ($38,530) as ransom. I informed the police and they finally located the girls."
The girls beg to differ. When they were arrested they told police they loved each other and that they were "married under Hindu traditions."

Sanjida was arrested on kidnapping charges, although she denies it.

"No one will ever lodge any complaint against me. Not even [this girl] as I did not abduct her. She went with me willingly," she told the newspaper before going to jail.

Bomb Targets Indian Consulate and Mosque In Afghanistan- Children In Mosque Killed

Ramadan is winding down and the killing of innocents, including children, continues.

A suspected suicide car bomb has killed at least nine civilians in the eastern Afghan province of Nangarhar.

Police say the bombing, early on August 3, targeted the Indian Consulate in Nangarhar's capital, Jalalabad.

"[T]he suicide bomber attacked the mosque here and all those children who were reciting the holy Koran inside the mosque were martyred -- eight children were martyred and 21 others wounded," Nangarhar police chief Mohammad Sharif Amin said in the aftermath of the bombing.

He was speaking before the death toll rose to nine.

Ahmadzia Abdulzai, a spokesman for government of eastern Nangarhar Province, said a car containing explosives hit a barrier near the Indian consulate and detonated.

"Five attackers arrived here and they asked me, 'Where is the gate to the consulate?'" Javed Khan, an eyewitness, said. "Then one of them asked, 'Is there a mosque nearby?' I said yes, and then they told me that they need to go for prayer. Then I heard a bang and gunfire shortly."

The Indian External Affairs Ministry said all diplomats in the consulate were safe.
Taliban deny involvement.

Israel A Wound That Needs To Be Removed- Says New Iranian President Rohani

Anyone who thought things might change under the leadership of the new so-called 'moderate' Iranian president Hassan Rohani (Rouhani) can lay those hopes to rest. At least when it comes to Iran's relationship with Israel. Rohani claimed that Israel is "a wound" that must be excised.

"The Zionist regime has been a wound on the body of the Islamic world for years and the wound should be removed," Rouhani was quoted as saying by the semi-official ISNA news agency.

The president-elect also expressed doubts about the possibility of an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal even as the two sides resumed negotiations in Washington this week, ending a five-year freeze in Mideast talks.

"Israelis show a compromising face to the world but continue their expansionism in practice," Rouhani said, according to Fars, another semi-official news agency.
Talk about showing one face to the world, but he's simply echoing what most every Muslim in the Middle East believes.

Peace in that region? Never. The Muslims will always hate the Jews/Israelis, and the Sunnis will always hate the Shia and vice versa. They're incapable of embracing peace. There are a few exceptions, but not enough to make a difference.

Saudi Blogger Gets 7 Years and 600 Lashes for Insulting Islam

According to Human Rights Watch, Saudi liberal blogger Raef Badawi- who faced possible death for apostasy- will get 7 years in jail and 600 lashes instead for insulting Islam. They couldn't get him on apostasy because he proved he is still a Muslim. I'm sure those who were bucking for apostasy charges are all sorely disappointed.

The charges against Badawi were based solely on his peaceful exercise of his right to free expression, Human Rights Watch said. Badawi established his online platform in 2008, to encourage debate on religious and political matters in Saudi Arabia. He has been detained in Jeddah’s Buraiman prison since his arrest on June 17, 2012.

“This incredibly harsh sentence for a peaceful blogger makes a mockery of Saudi Arabia’s claims that it supports reform and religious dialogue,” said Nadim Houry, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “A man who wanted to discuss religion has already been locked up for a year and now faces 600 lashes and seven years in prison.”

Abu al-Khair said that the judge sentenced Badawi to five years in prison for insulting Islam and violating provisions of Saudi Arabia’s 2007 anti-cybercrime law through his liberal website, affirming that liberalism is akin to unbelief. The judge ordered the closure of the website and added two years to Badawi’s sentence for insulting both Islam and Saudi Arabia’s Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, or religious police, in comments during television interviews.

Saudi authorities have long harassed Badawi for debating religious issues. In March 2008, authorities arrested Badawi and questioned him about his website, but released him a day later. In May 2008, Badawi was formally charged with “setting up an electronic site that insults Islam” and he left the country. He returned when prosecutors apparently decided to drop the charges, he told Human Rights Watch. In 2009, the authorities barred Badawi from traveling abroad and froze his business interests, depriving him of a source of income, he told Human Rights Watch.

On March 18, 2012, the well-known cleric Sheikh Abdulrahman al-Barrak issued a religious ruling declaring Badawi an “unbeliever… and apostate who must be tried and sentenced according to what his words require.” Al-Barrak claimed that Badawi had said “that Muslims, Jews, Christians, and atheists are all equal,” and that even if these were not Badawi’s own opinions but “an account of the words of others, this is not allowed unless accompanied by a repudiation” of such words.

Fearing a backlash, his wife and four kids left the Kingdom. Hope he does the same thing when he's released.

'Wage Jihad At Home' Urge Russian Jihadists Fighting In Syria


A Russian jihadist known as Salakhuddin, who is fighting with the rebels in Syria, is urging North Caucus jihadist Muslims who are itching to join the fight to stay at home and wage war there.

 "...fight in the lowlands if you can’t go to the mountains,"or alternatively to travel to Moscow or other Russian cities to target the enemy there, or prepare to sabotage the Winter Olympics in line with Umarov’s instructions.
He points out that jihad does not necessarily involve joining a large fighting force, and that individuals or groups of up to three fighters can inflict considerable damage if they set their minds to it. In that context, he quotes Chechen field commander Shamil Basayev's observation that "modern technology enables one man to inflict irreparable damage on the infrastructure of the enemy state."

Doku Umarov has threatened violence at the 2014 Winter Olympics.  Good luck with those.

"Virginity Tests" In Christian Georgia

Think that virginity tests are only a Muslim tradition? Think again. It's also happening in Georgia, which happens to be an Orthodox Christian nation, and while some defend the practice, some condemn it.

A recent news report on Georgia's Imedi television raised howls of protest when it revealed that Georgia's National Forensics Bureau was performing as many as 200 "virginity inspections" a year.

The report showed a bureau doctor describing the process, in which three medical experts use basic gynecological equipment and a head-mounted lamp to examine young women for tell-tale breaks in their hymen -- the traditional sign of sexual activity.

Since then, hundreds of Georgians have poured onto social media sites to alternately defend and assail the practice. And on July 30, a group of Georgian women gathered outside the forensics bureau to stage a noisy protest.

Natia Gvianishvili, a member of the Independent Group of Feminists, which organized the protest, said it was time to tackle what Georgians call the "virginity institute," the notion that a woman's value as a future wife and mother rests almost exclusively on her chastity.

"We are calling on the forensics bureau to stop providing these types of services. The idea of destroying the 'virginity institute' lies in treating women's sexuality and their sexual behavior on equal terms with men's sexuality," Gvianishvili said.

Despite the fact that its own employees were cited in the Imedi report, the Forensics Bureau on July 30 posted a statement on its website saying it performed virginity tests only in the case of court-ordered rape and abuse allegations. It denied issuing certificates for brides and other young women.
