“Moderate, secular, modern Turkey”- isn’t that what the spin doctors would have you believe?
* It was ‘secular’ Turkey’s PM Erdogan who famously said that â€žthe minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks. The French scholar of Islam, Anne-Marie Delcambre, found the phrase so telling that she chose to end her useful short study, â€žLâ€šIslam des interdits, with that quote from Erdogan, that demonstrates that mosques are not peaceful places of contemplation and private worship, but places from which war is made on the Infidels. “Les minarets sont nos baionnettes, les coupoles nos casques et les mosquees nos casernes.
* “The restrictions on wearing the Islamic scarf in public life have a negative impact on the freedom of the believers.”
* ‘Turkey moves on head scarves’- turnspeak and obfuscation. What’s really happening here is that the Islamofascists around Erdogan & Ghul are turning the clock back. They are ‘liberating’ the believing Muslims to whack the not so fanatcal believers into submission. Masters of taqiyya, these advocates of Islamic ‘freedom under the sharia’-.
* Won’t be long now before Turkey becomes a caliphate, the ‘Islamic Republic of Turkey’ seems inevitable.

Turkey’s ruling AK Party, which has Islamist roots, signalled plans to ease a ban on the wearing of the Islamic headscarf in universities under a new draft constitution.
“This (new) constitution will solve the headscarf problem in a more libertarian spirit,” Dengir Firat, a deputy chairman of the AK Party, told CNN Turk television.
No compulsion in religion. But again, what about in lack of religion?
The AK Party is due to publish its draft constitution on December 15.
It has said the draft, due to replace a text dating back to a time of military rule in the 1980s, will boost individual freedoms in Turkey, a European Union candidate.
Firat said the government wanted a wider debate about the principles and aims of the new constitution, adding that opponents were trying to whip up secularist fears artificially by concentrating solely on the headscarf issue.
“The headscarf is an extension of freedom of belief,” he said.
* So is not wearing a headscarf. Would that preference be honored if the Islamists had their way? That is at the root of the secularists’ concerns.
Let them into the EU. That’ll fix everything.
An update on this story. “Turkey Investigates Alleged Ties Between Police, Alleged Killers of Christians,” from the Associated Press:
ANKARA, Turkey â€” Turkey has launched an investigation into alleged collusion between police officers and at least one of the suspects charged with killing three Christians earlier this year at a publishing house that produces Bibles, an official said Saturday.
Two senior police inspectors will be assigned to investigate whether any officers provided assistance to the suspects, an Interior Ministry official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. He did not provide further details.
The three Christians â€” a German and two Turks â€” were killed in the southern city of Malatya on April 18. The killings â€” in which the victims were tied up and had their throats slit â€” drew international condemnation and added to Western concerns about whether Turkey can protect its religious minorities.
Five people were arrested and charged with murder. The trial opened last month, but was quickly adjourned until Jan. 14 because defense attorneys requested more time to prepare their arguments.
The Interior Ministry decided to open an investigation after several newspapers published stories Saturday alleging cooperation between police and at least one of the suspects.
Basra jihadists threaten women: “Whoever disobeys will be punished. God is our witness that we have conveyed this message”
“Islam elevates women.” (But the “elevator” only has a “down” button.)
“Basra women fear militants behind wave of killings,”
BASRA, Iraq (Reuters) – Women in Iraq’s southern city of Basra are living in fear. More than 40 have been killed and their bodies dumped in the streets in the past five months for behavior deemed un-Islamic, the city’s police chief says.
A warning scrawled in red on a wall threatens any woman who wears makeup or appears in public without an Islamic headscarf with dire punishment.
“Whoever disobeys will be punished. God is our witness that we have conveyed this message,” it says. ‘God willing there won’t be any girl left in the university without wearing a headscarf’.”
* Freedom, baby. Freedom to spread Islam. Hijab is freedom. The real thingy….
Iraq: Basra’s Islamic Militias tell Christian Women to Cover up or Face Death….
From the Islamic tolerance department
On her first day at Basra University this year a man came up to Zeena, a 21-year-old Christian woman, and three other Christian girls and ordered them to cover their heads with a hijab, or Islamic headscarf.
“We didn’t listen to him, and thought he might just be some extremist student representing only himself,” she said. The next day Zeena and two of her friends returned to class with uncovered heads.
This time a man in the black clothes of the Shia militia stopped them at the entrance and took them aside. “He said, ‘We asked you yesterday to wear a hijab, so why are you and your friends not covering your hair?’. He was talking very aggressively and I was scared,” Zeena recalled.
The girls explained that they were Christians and that their faith did not call for headscarves. “He said: ‘Outside this university you are Christian and can do what you want; inside you are not. Next time I want to see you wearing a hijab or I swear to God the three of you will be killed immediately’,” Zeena recalled. Terrified, the girls ran home. They now wear the headscarf all the time.

“That*,* in the opinion of the House, due to the important contributions of Canadian Muslims to Canadian Society; the cultural diversity of the Canadian Muslim community; the importance of Canadians learning about each other to foster greater social cohesion; and the important effort now underway in many Canadian communities in organizing public activities to achieve better understanding of Islamic history, the month of October should be designated Canadian Islamic History Month.”
* WTF are those ‘important contributions of Canadian Muslims to Canadian Society? Many of us are literally dying to know!
* If bullshit could fly Muslims would come on wings:
The science of charting the Earth’s lands and waters was of primary importance to Muslim navigators, for next to faith itself and one’s obedience to it, commerce and travel fed the social economy and thus governed people’s daily lives.
In addition to improving the astrolabe (without which no Western mariner would feel safe on the open seas for centuries to come), Muslims were the first to apply the principle of magnetism to marine and land travel, perhaps as early as the 9th and 10th centuries …

Muslim Civilization Builders
* For the good professor there is no civilization except besides the destructive, barbaric cult of Islam, which from the outset has done nothing other than rape, pilfer and destroy every culture and civilization in its way that was historically good and far more advanced, over a millennium and a half.
* Here you can read how this demented propagandist throws dirt on our culture and heritage and makes absurd claims in order to make his cult look palatable. But you can’t make chicken salad out of chicken shit, professor. You can’t. We got your number, don’t call us….
