TORONTO – Terror, violence, honour killings and other forms of misogyny continue to afflict the Islamic world.On May 27, the world witnessed a brutal honour killing in my home city of Lahore, Pakistan – ironically right before the Lahore High Court, an institution that should bestow justice.
Farzana Praveen, 25, was stoned to death by people who should have bestowed love: 20 members of her own family. The crowd merely watched in silence as the poor woman and her husband were brutalized. Their crime? Marrying for love.
In Nigeria, Boko Haram still holds hostage the more than 200 Christian girls abducted in April. Rescuing them will be a tough task.
France is the terror capital of Europe, suffering 63 of the 152 terrorist attacks in the European Union in 2013. Three people were killed in the attacks and 225 arrests were made for terrorism-related offences. (Incorrect statement. Mohammed Merah alone murdered 6 people. The attack on the Jewish Museum last week killed another four,)
In a shocking attempt to make political capital out of the terror statistics, Ceclilia Malmstrom, the European Commissioner for Home Affairs, tried to link the rise in terrorism in part to the anti-establishment and anti-immigration movement which returned a record number of eurosceptic members to the European Parliament.
She said that “in times when populist movements and xenophobic winds are sweeping across Europe” it is important to keep in mind that “radicalisation leading to violent terrorism is a gradual process and does not happen overnight.”–Eurocrat Makes Excuses for Terrorism in France
Cecilia Malmström is a Swedish Politician commie apparatchik and an avid supporter of “multiculturism.” Islam.
Sweden has the highest incidence of reported rapes in Europe but the lowest conviction rate, and worsening levels of violence against women. In the first seven months of 2013, over 1,000 Swedish women reported being raped by Muslim immigrants in the capital city of Stockholm, over 300 of those were under the age of 15. To this date Malmström has been silent on this issue…
Israel arrested a major Hamas figure earlier this month as he attempted to infiltrate the country via the Allenby Bridge crossing, the Shin Bet security service revealed Thursday afternoon. Mahmoud Toameh, a “top-ranking overseas operative of Hamas,” gave the security agency a wealth of details about the activities of the radical Islamic group during his interrogation, it said, including its funding sources, international activities and activities inside Israel. Notably, he revealed that Hamas pays hundreds of young Israeli Arab citizens to harass Jews seeking to enter the Temple Mount area
At university campuses in the US, Canada, Australia and Europe, they are hailed as heroes campaigning for Palestinian rights. But in Ramallah, ironically, activists belonging to the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions [BDS] movement are seen by the Palestinian Authority [PA] as trouble-makers and law-breakers.
This article epitomizes the willful ignorance and self-imposed blindness of the British intelligentsia regarding Islam. The BBC says below that “men in Niger are allowed to have four wives under a local interpretation of Islamic law.” A local interpretation of Islamic law? Oh, so the Qur’an is local to Niger, now? The Qur’an says: “And if you fear that you will not deal justly with the orphan girls, then marry those that please you of women, two or three or four. But if you fear that you will not be just, then one or those your right hand possesses. That is more suitable that you may not incline to injustice.” (4:3)
So the idea that a man can have as many as four wives is not some “local interpretation of Islamic law” that they dreamed up in Niger, but is stated in what Muslims believe to be the word of Allah himself. The BBC doesn’t want to acknowledge that, because then it would have to confront unpleasant questions about Muslims in the UK — and it’s easier to condemn “Islamophobia” and pretend that all is well.
Meanwhile, these “fifth wives” appear to be those referred to in this same Qur’an passage as “those your right hand possesses.” Thus there is nothing illegal about such arrangements in Islamic law, but under pressure from human rights and anti-slavery groups, Niger finally banned slavery in 2003, and now, eleven years later, is finally getting around to prosecuting someone for it.
However, as this article notes, “thousands of people still live in subjugation,” so there are going to have to be a lot more prosecutions before Niger can truly be said to be serious about stopping slavery. And because slavery is sanctioned in Islam, it is unlikely that Niger is ever going to be all that serious about stopping the practice.

Will health workers in Pakistan overcome political and religious tensions to vaccinate children against polio?
(The question is preposterous. Its not a matter of ‘overcoming political and religious tensions’, its whether you want to get yourself killed by primitive savages.)
The horrors of polio have left a legacy of suffering across the world.
(Not the horrors of polio, the horrors of Islam. Islam left a legacy of suffering across the world. If it wasn’t for Islamic savages murdering the health workers the disease would have long been eradicated.)
One of the commenters on al Jazeera confirms the fanatical frenzy that is so deeply ingrained in the Mohammedan mental baggage:
POLIO VACCINE IS ADDED WITH INFERTILITY TOXINS.
It is known to everyone in Pakistan that the polio vaccine that is used in NWFP & FATA is mixed with toxins to make Pakhtoon Muslims infertile. Now, the same toxin is used in Balochistan to reduce Balochi Muslims’ population. Therefore, now Pakhtoon Muslims & Balochi Muslims are not using this toxin for their children.
It should be noted that population of Sindhi Muslims, Balochi Muslims, and Pakhtoon Muslims have reduced however the percentage of PUNJABIS have increased from 60% to 67%.
