Will Asia Bibi get out of Pakistan alive?

Pakistan: Christian woman imprisoned for years for blasphemy is acquitted, Muslims riot and call for her death 

She will not be safe unless and until she gets out of Pakistan. “Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi has death penalty conviction overturned,” by Sophia Saifi and James Griffiths, CNN, October 31, 2018

Thomas Sowell:

“Historians of the future, when they look back on our times, may be completely baffled when trying to understand how Western civilization welcomed vast numbers of people hostile to the fundamental values of Western civilization.”

“Envy was once considered to be one of the seven deadly sins before it became one of the most admired virtues under its new name, ‘social justice.'”

Hungary’s Lajos Kosa, head of parliament’s defence and law enforcement committee:

“The Soros network is working to get migration accepted as a fundamental human right at the UN, in Brussels and in the European Parliament, Hollik said. That’s how they want to turn Europe into a continent of migrants, and that’s how they want to destabilise the anti-migration US government”.

The second caravan is on its way

Second migrant caravan storms into Mexico: ‘Violent’ group from Central America carrying BOMBS and guns defies a huge police presence to cross the border from Guatemala as Trump deploys 5,200 troops
  • The second caravan making their way up through Central America have members armed with explosives
  • Had gasoline bombs made of soft-drink bottles, and improvised PVC tubes to launch fireworks 
  • Mexican federal police briefly blocked the migrants from crossing the Suchiate River on Monday
  • But the migrants soon defied the law enforcement presence and broke through into Mexico  
  • Many tried to swim or wade across to Mexico, some while carrying children
  • Law enforcement avoided a second day of violence, a day after a confrontation left one migrant dead  

Dust clouds are created by a Mexican Federal Police helicopter flying close to the Suchiate River in order to create a downwash force to discourage the migrants bound for the US border

NOW IT’S OFFICIAL: EUROPEANS CAN’T CRITICIZE ISLAM

The European Court of Human Rights goes full dhimmi.

October 29, 2018

Bruce Bawer

Founded in 1949 and headquartered in Strasbourg, the Council of Europe – which today counts every European state except Belarus and Vatican City as a member – is supposed to be a guardian of democracy and human rights. That’s its official raison d’être. It is separate from the European Union, and its court, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), whose judges are elected by the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly (a legislative body whose 324 members are drawn from Europe’s national parliaments), should not be confused with the EU’s European Court of Justice (ECJ). It began hearing cases and handing down verdicts in 1959.

How many Europeans are even aware of the Council of Europe’s existence – or, if they are, could explain what it does? How many know the difference between the ECHR and the ECJ? Relatively few, I suspect. But this is par for the course in Europe, where the elected governments, in the decades since World War II, have built up a network of international bodies that wield considerable power while operating in the shadows with little or no accountability to the people. Guardian of democracy, indeed. Continue reading NOW IT’S OFFICIAL: EUROPEANS CAN’T CRITICIZE ISLAM

MARK OF THE UNBELIEVER

It’s her money only until leftists put out their hands
It’s her money only until leftists put out their hands

Tim Blair, The Daily Telegraph

The most sacred tenet of the leftist faith is unlimited access to other people’s money, for whatever purpose a leftist may desire. Any blasphemer who questions this holy entitlement will face a righteous condemnation.

For example, a few days ago I posted a brief item supporting former education minister Simon Birmingham’s veto of ridiculous grants, including:

$222,936 for a study of “post Orientalist arts in the Strait of Gibraltar”;

Nearly $1 million set to be wasted on “writing the struggle for Sioux and US modernity”;

and $226,811 earmarked for the examination of “musical heritage and cultural justice in the post-industrial legacy city”.

Reasonable people may have opposing points of view on the worth of academic grants and may argue in civil terms for their respective causes. This, however, was the response in comments from sweet leftist Mark:

You’re a dirty filthy disease Blair.

It doesn’t take much, does it?

Robert Spencer: What Will Happen When the Migrant Caravan Reaches the Border?

Robert Spencer in FrontPage:

It’s a lose-lose situation. Even if the military handles the migrants with kid gloves and no one gets so much as a hangnail, the establishment media will portray the American soldiers who are stopping the caravan as redneck thugs, mindlessly operating on the orders of the racist bigot in the White House. And if the migrants are not stopped, and enter the country, the same media will howl that Trump has not kept his word, and cannot be trusted.

President Trump has put the thousands who are advancing to the U.S. border on notice: “To those in the Caravan, turnaround, we are not letting people into the United States illegally. Go back to your Country and if you want, apply for citizenship like millions of others are doing!” But there is no chance that they will heed his words. They will continue to advance inexorably toward the United States, and what will happen when they get here? A likely answer to that comes from the recent border protests in Gaza.

The Jerusalem Post reported last May: “Some 40,000 Palestinians took part in violent demonstrations at 13 different locations along the fence, throwing stones, explosive devices and Molotov cocktails at the fence and IDF troops, as well as burning tires and launching burning objects such as kites with charcoal or containers of burning fuel with the intention of setting fires in Israeli fields, the IDF said.” Continue reading Robert Spencer: What Will Happen When the Migrant Caravan Reaches the Border?

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu: “This ruling is pleasing in all its aspects”

European Court of Human Rights says defaming the Prophet Muhammad exceeds permissible limits of freedom of expression

Ex-OIC chief welcomes court ruling on defaming Prophet

“The fight against Islamophobia and our opinions we have been voicing for years have been adopted and declared by the ECHR,” he said, adding: “This ruling is pleasing in all its aspects.”

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) recently ruled that freedom of speech must be balanced with “protecting the religious feelings” of others. Hence, Europeans are no longer allowed to call Muhammad offensive names like “pedophile,” even though he had sex with a prepubescent nine-year-old girl named Aisha. David Wood discusses the issue.

Continued:

A former head of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) welcomed a European Court of Human Rights’ (ECHR) decision that penalized defaming of the Prophet Muhammed.

“The decision, which shows that disrespect, insults and detestable enmities have nothing to do with the freedom of expression or human rights, deserves admiration,” Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu told Anadolu Agency on Friday.

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff responds to EU court’s ruling that speech insulting Muhammad is prohibited

Judgement from the European Court of Human Rights:

Infidels must not be allowed to “stir up prejudice and putting at risk religious peace.”

How can this stand in the year 2018?

Yesterday, Jihad Watch covered the troubling ruling of the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) that “an Austrian woman’s criminal conviction and fine for her statements accusing the Prophet Muhammad of pedophilia did not breach her right to free speech.”

Insulting Muhammad is now forbidden, according to the ECHR, which has conceded to Sharia imperatives. This ruling is important not only for the “Austrian woman” who was not even named in the Daily Sabah article, but for all who support free speech. According to the ruling, Austrian courts had “carefully balanced her right to freedom of expression with the right of others to have their religious feelings protected.”

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff
Consider the impact of this ruling when weighed with what Pakistan’s President Imran Khan said: that he was “taking the matter [of blasphemy] to the United Nations, saying that few in the West understand the pain caused to Muslims by such activities.” Pakistan is well known for its cruel blasphemy laws.

The next step for the expansion of Sharia provisions in Europe will be the prohibition of all speech that is considered to be broadly offensive to Muhammad’s established religion — Islam — and offensive to the feelings of Muslims.

Robert Spencer wrote:

This is clearly the case of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, who was fined and given a jail sentence for calling Muhammad a pedophile. He married a six-year-old and consummated the marriage when she was nine, but “the Austrian courts had held that ES was making value judgments partly based on untrue facts and without regard to the historical context.

In Europe, Free Speech Bows to Sharia

Andrew C. McCarthy

Members of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France,
Europeans are free to say only what the courts let them.

When he was 50, the prophet of Islam took as his wife Aisha, who was then six or seven. The marriage was consummated when Aisha was nine.

This is not a smear. It is an accurate account of authoritative Islamic scripture. (See, e.g., Sahih-Bukhari, Vol. 5, Book 58, Nos. 234–236.) Yet it can no longer safely be discussed in Europe, thanks to the extortionate threat of violence and intimidation — specifically, of jihadist terrorism and the Islamist grievance industry that slipstreams behind it. Under a ruling by the so-called European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), free speech has been supplanted by sharia blasphemy standards. Continue reading In Europe, Free Speech Bows to Sharia

GENERAL GOMART: “THE INVASION OF EUROPE BY MIGRANTS IS PLANNED, CONTROLLED AND ACCEPTED”

BY PAMELA GELLER

Yes, this is true. I warned of it in the Washington Examiner in 2009 and in Newsmax.  The Euro-Med partnership.

It is planned for the U.S.A. as well. Think caravan.

Source Dreuz (translated)

GENERAL GOMART, HEAD OF MILITARY INTELLIGENCE, WHO LEFT THE ARMY IN MAY 2017, EXPLAINS: “THIS INVASION OF EUROPE BY MIGRANTS MOHAMMEDANS IS PLANNED, CONTROLLED AND ACCEPTED.”

And “nothing of the migratory traffic in the Mediterranean is ignored by the French authorities, military and civil”.

Lieutenant General Christophe Gomart, head of the DRM (Directorate of Military Intelligence), was responsible for gathering all the information likely to help France to make its military decisions.

At the opening of the symposium GEOINT (Geospatial Intelligence), held at the Geographical Society of Paris, on September 11 and 12, 2018, he explained how migratory traffic in the Middle East and the Mediterranean escaped intelligence. French.

The Military Intelligence Directorate, leader in France on satellite imagery intelligence (ROIM) provided by military spy satellites, inaugurated on January 19 a very discreet center of expertise, the Joint CRGI (Intelligence Center) geospatial).

Should it be illegal to call Mohammed a paedophile?

The ECHR have decided that truth is not a justification

October 27, 2018

Should you be allowed to say that the founder of one of the world’s largest religions was a paedophile? According to the European Court of Human Rights the answer is ‘no’. In a decision issued this week the Court in Strasbourg ruled that this statement is defamatory towards the prophet of Islam, ‘goes beyond the permissible limits of an objective debate’ and ‘could stir up prejudice and put at risk religious peace.’ Details of the long-running case can be read here.

I will come to the civilisational problems with this in a moment. But first allow me to point out what a difficult position this puts my book collection in. For beside me as I write I have a huge four-volume collection of the hadith (sayings) of Mohammed picked up on my travels in North Africa some years ago. They are the Bukhari hadith – that is the collection of hadith that scholars of Islam recognise to be the most authentic and reputable collection of Mohammed’s sayings. Whenever I open them I find out many interesting things about the founder of Islam.

For example, in ‘The Book of Ablution’ I can read what Mohammed thought about urination and the stances one might adopt during that act. I can also find advice about what to do with faeces and traces of blood coming from those same regions of the body. Crucially I can also learn what the prophet of Islam thought you should do with traces of ejaculate. I read, for instance about what those close to the prophet used to do with traces of semen found on his clothes. Sulaiman Ibn Yasar recounts what Mohammed’s last wife, Aisha, told him regarding this delicate subject:

‘I used to wash the traces of semen from the clothes of The Prophet “Allah’s blessing and peace be upon him” and he used to go for prayers while water spots were still visible on it.’ [230]

It may still be legal where I am sitting in Europe to quote this passage. But the next volumes could now get me into real trouble.

For example, here is a portion of the hadith known as ‘The Merits of The Ansar’:

‘Hesham narrated from his father: Khadija died three years before The Prophet “Allah’s blessing and peace be upon him” emigrated to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married A’isha when she was a girl of six years. He consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.’ [3896]

Tricky. Let me jump another volume forward in my collection of Hadith. This is from ‘The Book of Marriage’:

‘Urwa narrated: The Messenger of Allah “Allah’s blessing and peace be upon him” married A’isha when she was six years old, and consummated his marriage with her when she was nine. She remained with him nine years (till he died).’ [5158]

Which I think we can all agree is very awkward. All religious traditions have oddities. Some Christians and Jews recently expressed aggravation when Joe Rogan and I laughed at a portion of a text from their religious tradition regarding blasphemy, bears and baldies. But what can you do? Pretend that the legend of Elisha and the two bears isn’t in the Bible? Isn’t odd or funny? Burn all copies of the text?

Unwittingly, perhaps, the ECHR has brought us to something of an impasse in this ruling. For the hadith are – next to the Qur’an – the most important foundational texts of Islam. And they state, repeatedly and without caveat, that the founder of Islam had sex with a girl of nine, who he had married when she was six. Mohammed was 53 at this time.
