Abdul Hakim Muhammad, the man who killed one soldier and wounded another at a Army recruiting center in Little Rock last year, attempted to firebomb the rabbi of a synagogue in Nashville before he paid his murderous visit to Little Rock. This news has been publicly revealed for the first time, based on revelations in a psychiatric evaluation of Mr. Muhammad.
Meanwhile, France tries to deal with what in some suburbs seems almost an ethnic or religious war, brought on by lax immigration policies:
President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Friday he wanted to strip French nationality from anyone of foreign origin who threatened the life of a police officer, in a crackdown after riots shook two French towns this month.

University lecturer barred from class after refusing to wear a burqa
We always hear in the West that women who choose to don the veil are doing so of their own free will, and are perfectly free not to wear it. Yet the leader of the students’ union at Aliah University is willing to put this kind of pressure on Sirin Middya, and he is by no means alone in this. “Woman not allowed to teach after burqa refusal,” from Sify News, July 30 (thanks to JW)
English council bans staff from wearing mini-skirts
A COUNCIL has warned female employees they could be sent home if their skirts are too short.
Not that this has anything to do with Islam or Muslims imposing sharia. But what if it does?
A memo sent by bosses at Southampton City Council, in southern England, has instructed the council’s 400 staff to dress appropriately for work, The Daily Mail reports.
Social workers, youth workers and other employees in the council’s children’s services department were told to “carefully consider their work attire”.
Women were advised to wear trousers or skirts of “reasonable length” – “not mini-skirts”.

Family Security Matters
While the Saudis might have a lot of oil, they seem to be running short on milk. So much so that one of their imams wrote a fatwa* recently permitting the breast feeding of adult males thereby getting around the gender apartheid of the Kingdom of the Deprived. This would allow the nursing adult male to become mahram** and the nursing woman can then be in close quarters with him. To clarify his status changes from say a frequent visitor to more like a quasi member of the family, even called a “milk” brother, sort of like a blood brother.
This is not the first time a breast feeding fatwa has been issued. Several years ago in Egypt one was issued so that men could be nursed at the office by female workers, as if those poor women didn’t have anything else to do? Imagine having to also contend with the henna dyed bristly beards of the devout, scratching the tender breasts of a postpartum ummi (mother). Is there no shame?
Seriously, something is going on here. How can we understand it? Let us go a little deeper. After all even Al Qaeda has produced breast implant bombs for female suicide bombers. Why this obsession with the breast? Is Hooters moving to Saudi Arabia soon? Why this obsession with nursing?

Pakistan: 5 Christians shot to death coming out of church following threats from “banned” jihadist groups
Of course, given Pakistan’s ongoing double game, there is always the question of whether the groups are banned as in “banned,” or banned as in “just lay low for a bit or consider changing your name.”
“Suspected Islamists Shoot Five Christians to Death in Pakistan,” from Compass Direct News
AN Islamist website based in Australia is co-hosting an international forum this weekend.
‘Defensive’ Jihad, no doubt. All peaceful inner struggle:
The forum will “examine the current war against Islam and Muslims, and ask for how much longer can the kuffar (non-believers) fight against the deen (religion) of Islam, and the necessary steps needed for victory”. A starting time of midnight tonight in Sydney is advertised.
The keynote speech, titled Conquest of Washington, will be delivered by militant sheik Omar Bakri Mohammad. The Australian has more>>>
Modern, moderate Indonesia: Mob of enraged Muslims attack mosque of heretical Muslim sect
The Ahmadis are considered heretics, and thus are fair game for this kind of persecution by mainstream Muslims. “Hundreds attack mosque,” from AFP, July 29 (thanks to JW):

Indonesia: Missionaries expelled for baptisms, converts from Islam sent to re-education camp
In the West, Islamic spokesmen always insist that Islam supports the freedom of conscience, and the freedom to change one’s religion. These people must be reading that notorious Misunderstood Qur’an.

Indonesian government releases new translation of the Qur’an, designed to reduce “potential to breed radicalism”
The Qur’an has been around for 1,400 years, and so has jihad violence, but now the Indonesian government has discovered the key: it’s all because of a faulty translation, doncha know! And now I am very happy to announce that I too have come into the possession of the Secret Decoder Ring hitherto solely in the possession of Muslim moderates, and have used it to produce a brand new Qur’an of my own, now with 70% less “potential to breed radicalism”!
Here are some sample verses of my marvelous new Qur’an (Reduced Radicalism Edition):
New York City mosques to get extra protection during Ramadan

This Bloomberg News article says matter-of-factly that there has been “a rise this year in the number of hate crimes against Muslims,” and that’s why these extra police patrols are needed at New York City mosques during Ramadan.

Banks won’t take Fort Hood jihadist’s paychecks
Nidal Malik Hasan
One would think that murdering thirteen Americans in the name of Islamic jihad would at least get you suspended without pay, but no such luck. “Banks won’t take Fort Hood shooting suspect’s paychecks, by Jeremy Schwartz for the American-Statesman, July 29 (thanks to JW):
As he sits in the Bell County Jail, accused of the Nov. 5 Fort Hood shooting that left 13 dead, Maj. Nidal Hasan continues to receive his monthly U.S. Army paycheck, which based on his rank and experience is probably more than $6,000.That’s standard procedure for soldiers who are confined before military trial, according to Army officials.
But Hasan, charged with a shooting spree that shocked the country, is not a standard defendant. And he’s having a hard time finding a bank to take his money.
According to his civilian attorney John Galligan , Bank of America notified Hasan last month that it was closing his account and no area bank so far has agreed to open an account for the Army psychiatrist. Military regulations require soldiers to be paid through direct deposit, making a bank account indispensable.
“I think it’s just another example of the prejudice that he’s been exposed to,” Galligan said. “It’s money that he’s entitled to, that he has a right to.”…
A right to? For reporting his patients for war crimes? For murdering Americans? For jihad?
