Earlier this week, the NY Times published an image of Pope Benedict XVI made entirely of condoms. Some asked why the Times published this image after refusing to publish the Charlie Hebdo cartoons back in January. There seems to be a double standard at play. (Breitbart)
Welcome to Welfare-istan. No wonder the boats were so full:
A PRISONER using a contraband phone from his cell co-ordinated a complex drug network and deliveries from the outside to keep a Sydney prison supplied with the horror drug ice, police allege. But Windsor correctional centre prisoner Hassan Chehab was allegedly having his phone tapped by a police squad…
One of his alleged accomplices on the outside, disability support pensioner Ali Haidar, 25, was in Sutherland Local Court this week to be sentenced for his part in supplying ice to John Moroney Correctional Complex in January last year. Haidar pleaded guilty to supplying and possessing, methylamphetamine…
“I can’t wait to die as a martyr,” she said, according to L’Espresso magazine, which published some extracts.
Yet Western authorities remain remarkably uncurious about how conversion to Islam all too often leads people to espouse hatred and violence, to say nothing of treason. Although this is a recurring phenomenon, it is never discussed in public; to do so would be “Islamophobic.”
Muslim wife-beaters ‘hide behind the cloak of faith’
Muslim men who abuse women take advantage of misconceptions about Islam and use it as an excuse for their actions, say advocates who have called for greater efforts to fight domestic violence in the Muslim community.
They don’t take advantage of “misconceptions”. They are following the Quran and the teachings of their profit Muhammad. (SY)
Australian Muslim Women’s Centre for Human Rights director Joumanah El Matrah said men who cited their faith in efforts to excuse their abusive behaviour might not even have any relationship with Islam itself, relying on the religion solely to avoid blame.
Pure BS. Purely for ignorant westerners who know nothing about Islam and who don’t bother to check.
You’re allowed to march as long as you don’t mention Islam and Muslims who blew up innocent Britons on 7/7. The Daily Star doesn’t dare to mention the word “Islam” or “Muslims”, but it wants you to march against “terror”, or something. And Boris Johnson, always the clown, babbles stupidly about “a callous and nihilist ideology” that “brought Londoners together”.
A call of arms has been issued urging millions of Brits to remember those who have lost their lives in terrorist atrocities.
Sam Mansour, who has been dubbed ‘The Bookseller from Brønshøj’ and ‘al-Qaeda’s PR man in Denmark’, on Wednesday became the first ever Dane to have his citizenship revoked for illegal activity.– The Local
Muslim women fight for right to wear Islamic headscarf
In reality, they don’t have to “fight for right” at all; they can wrap themselves up like Egyptian mummies for all we care. But this is about breaking down the resistance of those who reject the shrouds for security reasons.
….as an observant Muslim woman who keeps her head covered in accordance with her faith, Ali tried to explain why she unable to remove her scarf, known as hijab. She was denied entry and told that unless she left, police would be called.
Right now, Islamophobia is the new anti-semitism, and it is dangerous. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott referred to Muslims a number of times in his speech last Monday, and he referred to the Lindt cafe siege in Sydney. It is important to bear in mind that the Lindt cafe siege was not a Muslim terrorist event: it was not any sort of terrorist event. It was the terrible act of a madman. …

ABC insists – er – even bigots have a right to speak, you know
Attorney-General George Brandis was widely ridiculed after he made these comments in the Senate in May, 2014: “People do have a right to be bigots, you know. People have the right to say things that other people would find insulting, offensive or bigoted.”
Many of Brandis’s critics were from the ABC, where the Attorney-General is something of a hate figure.
So it was a surprise on Monday night to hear so many people on the ABC’s Q & A program using Brandis’s exact argument to defend the show’s decision to grant several minutes of airtime last week to Islamic extremist Zaky Mallah.
“Rehman’s point is that if you call it Islamic State you are playing their game; you are dignifying their criminal and barbaric behaviour; you are giving them a propaganda boost that they don’t deserve, especially in the eyes of some impressionable young Muslims. He wants us all to drop the terms, in favour of more derogatory names such as ‘Daesh’ or ‘Faesh’, and his point deserves a wider hearing.”
Can Boris Johnson or Rehman Chishti or anyone else who advances this view point to even a single “impressionable young Muslim” who was moved to support or join the Islamic State because some non-Muslim called it “the Islamic State”? Can they point to even a single “impressionable young Muslim” who was moved to reject the appeal of the Islamic State because Boris Johnson or David Cameron or John Kerry or some other non-Muslim said that it wasn’t Islamic?
The problem with refusing to call the Islamic State what it calls itself is that it is a manifestation of a greater unwillingness to examine its motives and goals, and to devise ways to defeat it based on that examination. Refusing to understand your enemy is a recipe for defeat.
