Dearbornistan government at work: Covering up for the AK-47 jihadi suspect

From Michelle Malkin

“My American Jihad”- a Leb-Hezbollah Medical Student on the Jihad Warpath

They don’t call it Dearbornistan for nothing.

On Tuesday, a nation honored those whose lives were lost during the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. But four days prior to the anniversary of the deadly terrorist attacks, a Wayne State medical student had city officials hoping that the event would not be marred by more bloodshed.


Houssein Zorkot, 26, was arrested Sept. 8 after he was observed wielding an AK-47 semi-automatic assault rifle in Hemlock Park, a popular destination for many Dearborn residents.


Zorkot, who is of Lebanese descent, was arraigned Tuesday in 19th District Court — the same day city officials sent out a press release about an event that had happened four days prior, and one day after the Press & Guide had contacted city officials seeking comment.


According to Dearborn Mayor “Jack” O“Reilly, Jr., the release of information about the case was delayed until after Zarkot’s arraignment and late in the day that marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. City officials feared that announcing the arrest of an armed Arabic man so close to anniversary of the attack would stir anti-Muslim sentiments and fan the flames of terrorism.


”We didn’t want this to become more than it is,“ O’Reilly said. ”There are certain things that the media latches onto, and this would have turned into a story about terrorism. That’s not the kind of tone we want to set.”


Charles Johnson calls it “really bad craziness.” Yep.

Quote of the day:

This quote, attributed to Alexander Tytler in 1787 (but maybe just an internet creation), explains why Americans should not mock Europeans. The only difference between US and the EU is that Europe is ten years ahead of us. 

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

The Islamic presence makes a soft landing less likely.

True Islam: Keep looking, you came to the right place!


Ever since the relationships between the Occident and the Orient have been soured by 9/11, Muslims and islamapologists occasionally mention “True Islam”. And “True Islam”, ladies and gentlemen, well, it certainly must be something fantastic and awe-inspiring. People go all misty-eyed and gooey just talking about it. How sad it is, they say, that we, dumb frightened westerners, fail to appreciate the beauty of True Islam. No way those terrorist attacks have anything to do with True Islam
.

Quite the contrary: True Islam shows all of us the way to paradise on earth. True Islam is a beacon of love, tolerance and respect! True Islam will provide the final solution to end world hunger. True Islam will prove to be an effective medicine against cancer, AIDS, angst and nasal infections, yes, True Islam will make men want to fall into each others arms, and weep tears of joy. We could talk about it for hours on end! Oh, how we wish to make it clear to you what heavenly bliss you’re missing out on, only because you seem eager to make such a childish fuss about a few accidental bombings. Why won’t you accept that True Islam has nothing to do with all that? And then they shake their heads in utter disappointment and disbelief…

The EU Wants to Increase Muslim Immigration and Internet Censorship

images5.jpg

A few months ago, the EU’s Justice and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini worried about what to do with illegal immigration. To no-one’s surprise, he appears to have settled for surrendering and making it legal. The skilled glossocrat Frattini has already banned the use of the phrase Islamic terrorism: “You cannot use the term ‘Islamic terrorism,'” he insisted. “People who commit suicide attacks or criminal activities on behalf of religion, Islamic religion or other religion, they abuse the name of this religion.” He now thinks we shouldn’t use the word “immigration,” either, we should talk about “mobility.” Moreover, the “Asian” and “African” immigrants in this case generally come from the predominantly Muslim countries of North Africa and the Middle East, with some additional ones from Pakistan and similar nations. The EU has thus decided to flood Europe with tens of millions of Muslims, at the same time as peaceful Europeans demonstrating against the Islamization of Europe were brutally harassed by the police in the EU capital of Brussels.

* A nasty piece of work, this Franco Frattini. Read more..

* Fitzgerald has an idea that will work much better for US:

Those who supply the local defenders of the faith, who conduct those ever-expanding campaigns of Da’wa and outright propaganda for Islam, will be removed from our societies, and since it is impossible to detect the genuine and permanent “moderate” from the other kind, and since Islam “itself is not moderate,” we would be fools — as a truth-telling Iraqi Muslimin this country said himself (presumablyMuslim-for-identification-purposes-only Muslim)-– not to expel any of those who identify themselves as believing in 9.29, and 5.51, and all the rest of the Qur’anic passages, and also the hadith, that taken together, and understood as Muslims for 1350 years have understood them, declare a state of permanent war between Believers and Infidels.

We would be complete fools not to undertake, merely because we are all now Acolytes of the Church of Latter-Day Total Tolerance Even For Those Who Wish Us Ill, these minimal acts of self-defense and civilizational survival.

Police tell threatened Swedish artist to leave home

Cartoon Rage Continues

Ericsson, Ikea & Volvo threatened:

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A Swedish artist threatened with death over his drawing of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad has been told by police he is no longer safe living at home.

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-styled Islamic State in Iraq, offered up to $150,000 on Saturday for the murder of artist Lars Vilks for drawing the head of the Prophet on the body of a dog.

“I can’t live here,”
Vilks told Reuters by phone. “SAPO (Sweden’s security service) have judged that it (the threat) is very serious.”

He was allowed to go home and collect some things but it may be a long time before he is able to return again, he said.

“We have had contact with him (Vilks) and together with him are taking the decisions that are necessary,” a police spokesman said.

In an audiotape posted on the Internet, Baghdadi offered a lower bounty for the death of the editor of daily Nerikes Allehanda, which published the drawing last month in what it called a defense of free speech.

Top Swedish firms such as truck maker Volvo, mobile network builder Ericsson and retailer Ikea were also threatened unless an apology was forthcoming for the drawing.

The threats against Vilks and the newspaper mirror a crisis in Denmark last year.

Well, Reuters, to be accurate, those 50+ people didn’t just die, they were killed. By people outraged over drawings but apparently not so outraged at murder. Just saying “people died” when

witnesses said Christians were poured with petrol and burnt

is willfully covering for the monsters.


And it wasn’t merely 50+, it was closer to 150.

And it wasn’t just Danish embassies. Any western country, it would seem, would do. An Italian embassy and a British embassey were attacked.

But besides messing up on all the facts, you were on the right track.

Terror must be normal part of life: al-Qaeda

From correspondents in Dubai |the Australian

AL-Qaeda called on Islamists to sow terror in the West to create a climate of fear, in a third video marking the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US, which was posted on the internet today.

myallah11.jpg

Muhammad: Believe it or else..!

*

* Remember: Al Qaeda members are ‘good Muslims’- they take the Islamic scriptures seriously and will kill and die to emulate their ‘prophet’ Muhammad, a 7th century caravan raider, slave trader, torturer, genocidal mass-murderer, a misogynistic polygamist, child molester, arsonist and megalomanic warlord who invented ‘Allah’- his alter ego, in order to deceive his followers.

* Once again: The AQ-boyz are good Muslims, they follow the Koran and the sunnah, wherein it is written:

Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah and your enemies…” (Qur’an 8:60) 

*

Called “reasons and motives for the attacks on New York and Washington,” the video features a montage of images of the burning World Trade Centre towers and scenes from Islamist training camps.

“We must take Islamist terrorism to Western countries so that it becomes a normal part of life like natural disasters,” a voiceover says.

“In that way, we will have acts of mass extermination in which people will feel that their affluence also brings death… and we will have created a balance of deterrence between us and them,” the unidentified voice adds.

* In other words: Islam can only survive if people remain stupid and poor and in he grip of the Mullah’s and imams…

The new video also includes clips from old voice recordings of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and his Egyptian deputy Ayman al-Zawahiri, as well as a short video clip of Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid, also known as Sheikh Said, the group’s commander in Afghanistan.

Al-Qaeda already released a videotape and an audiotape featuring bin Laden earlier this month to mark the sixth anniversary of the attacks that killed nearly 3000 people in the US.

A third release had been trailed by al-Qaeda’s media arm, As-Sahab. In the event the new video was issued in the name of al-Tanzem, prompting suggestions the network has launched a new media arm.

Interesting comments on LGF

A remarkable comment from Jihad Watch:

In the UK, say, 10 years ago one of our best stand-up comics, Jasper Carrot (semi-retired now) did a routine were he had a conversation with a Christian. The dialogue was the Christian asked “Why did he always laugh at Christians why didn’t he have a go at the Muslims? The simple answer he gave himself was, “Because they will kill me!” It was incredible that in an auditorium with 5-6000 people who had been laughing up uproariously until then you could have heard a pin drop. I have never seen a professional performer in such a hole and I forget how he stopped digging. I would say there were very few Muslims in the audience but suddenly the silence was deafening.

That is how frightened people are in the UK even before 9/11

How did they do it? Just like this:

No, I have no idea how they did it, but they did it damned well, sez Charles from LGF:

Iran loses faith in clerics

Change elusive in rigid society

By Kim Barker

Tribune foreign correspondent

QOM, Iran

No Mo Moderates, Only Radicals:

The mob shouted for his blood. They called him a traitor; they yelled, “Death to Montazeri.”

330montazeri030202.jpg

The target of their wrath? The Grand Ayatollah Hussein Ali Montazeri.

Once, he was heir apparent to the ruler of the country, an Iranian equivalent to Thomas Jefferson, an Islamic revolutionary who helped topple the dreaded Shah of Iran. Now, though, his fall from grace seemed complete. Outside his home, an unruly crowd of hundreds had branded him a heretic.

As Montazeri, partially deaf, prayed in a room behind his office, he barely heard bricks shattering the windows. But his family members were scared. They ran from the cleric to the chaos outside and back, trying to shield Montazeri from harm.

Eventually, the police took action on that day in 1997, spraying the mob with tear gas. The aging cleric and his family escaped harm. But they would endure years of punishment, house arrest, prison and harassment.

Montazeri’s crime was simple: He had publicly criticized his one-time allies, the clerics who run the country, for abandoning human rights and freedom as the foundation of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

“The shah is gone,” Montazeri said in a recent interview. “But a clergy has replaced him.”

On one level, the story of Hussein Ali Montazeri is a powerful drama of life, death and resurrection in one of the world’s most rigid societies. Critics say he is naive, manipulated by the people around him and bitter after falling out of favor with the government. But at 82, Montazeri has survived years of intellectual apartheid to rise again in the eyes of the Islamic world. Today he is considered one of the top two Shiite clerics worldwide and is a powerful voice for moderation in Iran.

His story also shows the ups and downs of the struggle over Islam in a nation where large numbers of people yearn for the economic and political freedoms practiced in the secular West, often viewed as an icon of immorality by the conservative clerics of Iran.

In thick, black-rimmed glasses, a white skullcap, cardigan sweater and long robe, Montazeri hardly fits the image of a rebel. His hands shake. He often sits on a heating pad. He suffers from diabetes, but he hides chocolates in a desk drawer. He speaks in singsong sentences that trail off in a wheeze.

But Montazeri is at the heart of a battle over Iran’s fate–one that could hint at the future in the Middle East, where radicals from Iraq to the Gaza Strip want an Islamic revolution like the one that happened in Iran 25 years ago.

On one side are the powerful clerics who rule Iran and thwart the most modest reforms.

On the other side, grass-roots reformers complain that the fight for an Islamic democracy actually led to an Islamic dictatorship, one that jails or even kills its critics, violates basic rights and distorts the tenets of Islam.

Led by senior clerics such as Montazeri and one-time foot soldiers of the revolution, they seek democratic reforms that would restore a respect for human rights and freedom. Some, such as Montazeri, believe that the country can be run through an Islamic system. But others believe that religion has no place in government. They want the clergy to return to the mosques. They want a true democracy.

“I don’t have any doubt it will come,” said Ibrahim Yazdi, the Islamic Republic’s first foreign minister, who now leads the country’s only secular-leaning political party.

The people of Iran are caught in the middle, chanting “Death to America” at Friday prayers then welcoming American visitors with fresh fruit. They adhere to strict Islamic codes in public but disappear behind closed doors to drink homemade vodka and watch MTV.

They live in a nation that is rich in oil but has a stagnant economy. Jobs are scarce, the air polluted, the press controlled and the politics repressive.

And in the ultimate irony of the Islamic Republic, the country is becoming less religious, not more.

Friday prayers

On a Friday in January, one of Iran’s top politicians stood on an outdoor stage at the University of Tehran, praising the Islamic Revolution to a crowd of thousands.

“This is a big achievement,” said Hashemi Rafsanjani, Iran’s president from 1989 to 1997. “In today’s world, when many countries and people are against religion, we see a religion emerging capable of making a country run.”

This was no ordinary political stump speech. Rafsanjani was leading weekly Friday prayers, a blend of politics and religion, of pep rally and prayer, of love for Iran’s government and hate for the U.S. and Israel.

On one side of the audience, about 5,000 women sat on Persian carpets. Most wore chadors, sometimes using their teeth to hold the sheet-like coverings over their hair and bodies. They could not see Rafsanjani over the tall dividers separating them from about 15,000 men.

During Rafsanjani’s speech, the crowd responded with the same cheers of praise shouted since the revolution. “God is great,” they yelled. “Death to the United States.”

Iran is still a religious country, despite pushes for political reform. People in the crowd on Fridays embrace the revolution and all that has followed.

“Until the day we no longer have blood in our veins, we will say `Death to America,'” said Soraya Ghayoomi, before cheerfully handing an apple to an American.

Australia: Griffith University A Hotbed Of Wahabism?

Richard Kerbaj | The Australian
Hat tip: Rosie

$1m Saudi gift to uni

UP to $1 million will be pumped by Saudi Arabia into an Australian university, sparking fears the money will skew its research and create sympathy for an extremist Muslim ideology espoused by al-Qai’da.

James Cook University’s Mervyn Bendle, a senior lecturer in the history of communication and terrorism, said Saudi Arabia would not provide funds to any Islamic initiative without wanting to propagate its own agenda and version of Islam.

“Historically, Saudi funding around the world has been used to promote Wahhabism,” he said.

“It would be naive to just accept on the surface that this is not the case as far as this money is concerned.”

Griffith Islamic Research Unit will also receive a “collection of Islamic books and other materials”, according to the university’s website.

But the director of Griffith’s key Centre for Ethics, Law, Justice and Governance, Ross Homel, defended the Saudi grant the university received on August 23, saying it came with “no strings” attached.

* Right: “No strings attached”-are you really that naive, Mr. Homel?

* Prince Alwaleed is the Saudi who tried to give Rudi Giuliani a 10-million dollar check after the 9/11 Islamic terrorist attacks on the WTC– if only he would address ‘Muslim grievances’- much to his credit Giuliani told the prince to shove it.

* Al Waleed is also the guy who owns a lot of America’s Caliphate News Network, he also owns: large holdings in the Four Seasons, Walt Disney, Citigroup etc. Yes, and of course 6 % of Fox News, which also cooks the news ever since, in order not to ‘offend Muslim sensitivities..’

Here’s an article in the Courier Mail about this taxpayer funded suicidal lunacy:

Teaching Muslims moderation

By Lachlan Heywood

YOUNG Muslims will be taught Australian-friendly Islam under a Federal Government plan to stop them falling prey to extremists.

An approved Islamic curriculum will be rolled out by a consortium of universities, including Griffith University in Brisbane, to counter the teachings of Muslim firebrands who preach intolerance and hate.

The establishment of the $8 million national centre of excellence for Islamic studies comes amid outrage over comments by leading Australian Muslim clerics Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali and Sheik Feiz Mohammed.

Fitzgerald: Da’awa, Taqiyya, Tu Coque and whatever it takes…

A convert to Islam, Mahdi Bray is not one of those, like Ibrahim Hooper, who has attained national prominence. He is a tireless worker at the local level, however, and in his dual presentation of self, or presentation of dual selves, most instructive. Soft-spoken and smiling and all sweet reason, and with a comfortably American voice, when addressing Infidels, he becomes something quite different for Muslim audiences, where he has been known to chant-and-rant, as in his call of support for Hamas before a crowd in Washington, or whipping up a crowd to show up at a courtroom to mock the proceedings which involved charging a Muslim with plotting to kill the American President. He is also careful, at the local level, to carry out all those carefully-calibrated and well-publicized deeds of supposed charity – to earn Infidel goodwill – that are described as being so useful in the conduct of Da’wa at Muslim sites.

Islamophobia

Looking at the causes and ways to tackle them
OIC Journal, Issue 1

If peace, harmony and equality are to prevail we should start by learning to better communicate with each other based on mutual respect, understanding and empathy of each other. Using such terms as “Islamic fascists”, “Muslim terrorists” and “Islamist fundamentalist extremists” do not help in fighting the so called “war on terrorism”.

On the contrary, such offensive, irresponsible and insensitive terms only serve to inflame resentment towards the US and instill a fear of Muslims in westerns’ mind.

Profiling ‘Asian looking’ people at airports and removing individuals with ‘Muslim sounding names’ from airplanes because they make others uncomfortable is a clear indication of a growing biased fear and suspicion of Muslims.

The publication and republication of cartoons in European media caricaturing the Prophet Mohammed in a way perceived by Muslims as deliberately insulting and defamatory but done, according to the publishers, in the name of freedom of the press, exposed a cultural divide that erupted into anger because of stereotyping.

The horrific, criminal and unjustified terrorist acts of 9/11 in New York and 7/7 in London violently expressed the frustration, disappointment and disillusion that are festering deep in the Muslims’ soul towards the aggressions and discriminations committed against them by the West.

Spencer from JW:

Imagine! They enter Islam with open mind and open heart, and somehow they get the crazy idea that the Qur’an and Muhammad are commanding them to subjugate the infidel, by violence if necessary! What a crazy notion! One would think that Muslim groups in Europe and America would be anxious to head this off, and are instituting comprehensive programs to teach against Islamic supremacism and the jihad ideology in every madrasa and mosque in the West. Aren’t they? Mr. Hooper, care to comment on CAIR’s efforts in this direction?

“Converts To Islam Move Up In Cells,” by Craig Whitlock for the Washington Post

BERLIN — Religious converts are playing an increasingly influential role in Islamic militant networks, having transformed themselves in recent years from curiosities to key players in terrorist cells in Europe, according to counterterrorism officials and analysts.
The arrests this month of two German converts to Islam — Fritz Gelowicz and Daniel Schneider — on suspicions that they were plotting to bomb American targets are just one example of terrorism cases in Europe in which converts to Islam have figured prominently.

In Copenhagen, a convert is among four defendants who went on trial this month for plotting to blow up political targets. In Sweden, a webmaster who changed his name from Ralf Wadman to Abu Usama el-Swede was arrested last year on suspicion of recruiting fighters on the Internet. In Britain, three converts — including the son of a British politician — are awaiting trial on charges of participating in last year’s transatlantic airline plot.

* Hmm, interesting: How come we haven’t heard anything about this ‘son of a British politician?’ Who is hiding what, exactly? Don’t you think this is a matter of public interest?

“The number of converts, it seems, is definitely on the rise,” said Michael Taarnby, a terrorism researcher at the Danish Institute for International Studies. “We’ve reached a point where I think al-Qaeda and other groups recognize the value of converts, not just from an operational viewpoint but from a cultural one as well.”

Religious converts are sometimes more prone to radicalization because of their zeal to prove their newfound faith, analysts said. They are also less likely to attract police scrutiny in Europe, where investigators often rely on outdated demographic profiles in terrorism cases.

* Yes, zeal is key, but new converts to Christianity, as zealous as they may be, don’t seem to be blowing anything up. Now, why is that?

Iraq: That Sunni/Shiia Divide

0.jpg

By Robert H Reid for AP via The Guardian:

BAGHDAD (AP) – An al-Qaida front group threatened to assassinate Sunni leaders who support American troops in Iraq as a Shiite bloc loyal to radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr defected Saturday from the Iraqi government’s parliament base.
The two developments cast doubt over prospects for political and military progress in Iraq as the U.S. Senate gears up for a debate next week on Democratic demands for deeper and faster troop cuts than President Bush plans.

The threat against Sunni leaders came from the ‘Islamic State of Iraq‘-, which claimed responsibility for the assassination Thursday of Abdul-Sattar Abu Risha, the mastermind of the Sunni Arab revolt against al-Qaida in Anbar province. Bush met Abu Risha at a U.S. base in Anbar this month and praised his courage.

Spencer’s comment:

Now while al-Qaeda may be the nastiest of the bunch right now, the idea that defeating them will at last liberate that huge reservoir of Islamic goodwill and cooperation currently only latent is, well, fantasy. If it’s not al-Qaeda it will be somebody else — unless they are forcibly repressed.

In an Islamic context, there are exactly two kinds of regimes possible: Islamic tyrannies and non-Islamic tyrannies. Either way, force is what holds the whole thing together. And don’t talk to me about Turkey. Turkey continually oscillates between full-blown Sharia and military dictatorship. Turkey is as secular as it is thanks to Gemal’s outright repression of Islam.

Force is invariably the key: the question is whether it is employed to repress or to abet Sharia, jihad, and general Islamic imperialism. The result the US administration ostensibly desires in Iraq — a competent, popular, Shia republic — might prove the worst of the possible outcomes. It would effectively turn Iraq into another Iran. Though US policy success in Iraq hardly seems likely. Small consolation.

Fitzgerald comments on Turkey/Link

“Turkey continually oscillates between full-blown Sharia and military dictatorship.”
— from the article above

This is not true. The history of modern Turkey does not show it ever to have been forced to endure “full-blown Shari’a.” It would be more accurate to say that Kemal Ataturk was a despot, but an enlightened despot. He systematically constrained Islam. He helped to make possible the development of a secular class, but that same secular class, the class of intended beneficiaries of Ataturk’s measures collectively known as “Kemalism,” were insufficiently wary of Islam, or insufficiently grateful for what Kemalism had done for them, or both, to continue to push for ever more constraints. Nor did they push to expand their numbers as vigorously as they might have. They behaved, in fact, as Turkey’s geopolitical ally the United States behaved during the Cold War, with both the secular Turks and the American government assuming that Kemalism was there to stay, and would continue to inexorably transform Turkey.

bluemosqueturkey14.jpg

What turned out to be permanent, and a permanent threat to Turkey’s dominant secular class who controlled not just the army, but the universities and the judicial system, was not Kemalism, which needed to be constantly protected, but Islam. Islam is the force that keeps coming back, that cannot be kept down, like Rasputin.

And those who fill Western newspapers with contented reports on how the Islam in Turkey is so much better, so much in tune with the modern world (why, just look at those places, say Konya, where Islam and economic activity (it’s always about some bustling textile or candy factory) do not know, cannot know, what Turkish secularists now know.

In the past, it was the army that was seen as the protector of Kemalism, and several times the army seized power, but most temporarily, in order to re-establish a system threatened by Islam. It would be harder now, for Erdogan, following Erbakan, have been whittling away at the pillars of Kemalism — in the war on the Turkish rectors, and even, one suspects, infiltrating their own men, who are well-versed in the need for deception and for patience, into the army, perhaps even into the lower ranks of the officer corps.

Turkey does not “continually oscillate…” It has had, since the early 1920s, a system that has constrained Islam. For nearly half-a-century that system, put in place by a war hero and enlightened despot, continued, though his successors — Inonu, Menderes — added their own twists to, or turns away from Ataturk, who in the meantime, after his death, became the central figure in the cult of “the Turk” which was offered as an alternative to Islam, with Ataturk substitute, as a human form divine, for Muhammad.

Abuse, Sodomy and Murder in the Madrassah

* Muhammedans are always quick condemning Christian clergy for child abuse, but shamelessly and deliberately shroud everything behind multiple veils of secrecy when it comes to child abuse in their own mosques and madrassah’s. But it is no secret that child abuse is far worse in the Muhammedan indoctrination centers:

The Darul Uloom Islamia is one of Mumbai’s many madrasas- an islamic seminary and a cradle of learning. But it now faces allegations of abuse, sodomy and even murder.

Sixteen-year-old Mohammad Shaikh was found dead in the madrasa premises on October 3, 2006. One year on, no answers are forthcoming in the case.

”Someone murdered him. There is also a case of rape. Someone was strangled inside the mosque. Whether he is the Imam’s son or someone else, they should know, the people who live there. But no one comes out with any answer,” said Jamiruddin Shaikh, Mohammad Shaikh’s father.

The boy’s grief-stricken parents are demanding answers but the Noor-e-Mohammadi Muslim Jamat, which runs the Madrassa, is on the defensive.

‘If anything happens inside or outside the madrasa, the responsibility is not of the madrasa. If your son comes here and does some mischief, it’s not our fault. When the boy died, the madrasa was closed. The boy had even given us a letter, saying he needed to go home and he never returned,” said Aziz Chunawala, Vice President, Noor-e-Mohammadi Muslim Jamat.

Distraught parents have repeatedly approached the local police but the case is going nowhere. Their only hope now lies in the police commissioner with whom the complaints are pending.

* Lie and deny. Accuse the victim. Never accept responsibility. Sounds familiar..?

Egypt: The Sixth Coptic- Christian Girl Abducted In One Month

Wataninet:

* totally ignored in the West is the plight of the Coptic Christians in Egypt, who often have their daughters abducted and forcibly married off into a Muhammedan household, never to be seen again. But the Christian Copts have no rights in the courts, since they are dhimmi’s:

The Holy Virgin’s church at the mid-Delta town of Mehalla was the scene of Coptic demonstrations this week in the aftermath of the disappearance of 18-year-old Amal Zaki Nessim. Amal went to work as usual last Sunday but never came back. Her colleagues at the Mehalla Spinning and Weaving Company said she left work early that day with a friend who is a fully-veiled Muslim woman named Samah. Amal’s family reported her missing and Samah was questioned by the police but claimed she knew nothing about Amal’s disappearance. The Copts demonstrated in wrath, demanding that the police find Amal and bring her home since she is underage. Anba Bishoi, Bishop of Dumyat contacted the security authorities who promised to produce Amal on the following day, but did not keep good on their word. Until Watani went to press Amal was still missing with no clue as to where she could be.

Her father was hospitalised with cardiac seizure. Worth noting is that Amal was engaged to get married next week and is reported to have been making the last arrangements for her wedding, reserving an appointment with the hairdresser and the DJ for her wedding music. Amal is the sixth underage Coptic girl to disappear during this month alone, and is the fifth girl to disappear from Mehalla since last October, only two of whom were returned to their families.

Brussels: Male Gynaecologists Resist Muhammedan Demands

* A case for the Mufti of Brussels, Freddy Thielemans. These misguided doctors must be afflicted with severe Islamopohobia, serious intolerance towards the tolerant ones. Will fat Freddy send his stormtroopers out to round them up and haul them off to some kind of re-education camp in order to cure their recalcitrance with the proper multiculti-diversity soup?

No, you cannot see my vagina…

BRUSSELS – More and more Muslims are refusing to allow a male gynaecologist to attend at their wives’ deliveries, says the head of gynaecology at the Brussels University Hospital VUB and the Ghent University Hospital. Various newspapers have reported on the problem.

The Flemish Association of Gynaecologists are urging for a strict, uniform policy in all hospitals. The phenomenon is common particularly in cities with a large immigrant population.

The Flemish Association for Obstetrics and Gynaecology (VVOG) acknowledges the problem and urges a strict attitude. “In my own hospital every patient that absolutely insists on a woman doctor is discharged from the hospital immediately,” explains Johan Van Wiemeersch at the Sint-Augustinus in Wilrijk. “As an association of gynaecologists we are urging that these same strict regulations be in place in all maternity wards.”

Meanwhile, back in olde England: “There is no compulsion in religion’ -update

Bishop warns that Muslims who convert risk being killed

One of the Church of England’s most senior bishops is warning that people will die unless Muslim leaders in Britain speak out in defence of the right to change faith.


Michael Nazir-Ali, the Bishop of Rochester, whose father converted from Islam to Christianity in Pakistan, says he is looking to Muslim leaders in Britain to ‘uphold basic civil liberties, including the right for people to believe what they wish to believe and to even change their beliefs if they wish to do so’.

Quebec jihad suspect to West: ‘We came to you with slaughter’

From his computer in Quebec, Ashraf disseminated articles that berated Muslims for not fighting jihad; called for war until “religion will be for Allah alone”; and bluntly advised the West that, “We came to you with slaughter.”

Yesterday, Said Namouh, 34, a landed immigrant from Quebec, appeared briefly in a Montreal courtroom, accused of working with an Austrian extremist to plot a truck bombing in Europe.

Germany: No Muslim Cooperation in Antiterrorism Fight

* Yeah. And why would that be?

Because Yvonne Ridley told them not to cooperate with the authorities? Or because Omar Bakri Mohammed and many clerics like him told them not to cooperate either?

Berlin – The lack of cooperation of Muslim communities with the security authorities remains a weak point of the fight against terrorism in Germany. Six years after the attacks on 11 September 2001, according to a survey of the news agency ddp in all federal laender, the authorities can hardly count on active support from Muslim communities. In 2007, they have received practically no specific information on “radicalized fellow believers, on recruiters of terrorist organizations, or on planned attacks.”
Why is that? Whenever someone says something like this in the U.S., Muslim spokesmen charge that they are helping, they are working against terror, but they don’t get any coverage in the press for such efforts. But this is the word of German authorities, who have every interest in playing up the extent of Muslim cooperation.

Yet still, this question, Why not?, as crucial as it is, will not even be asked, or if asked, will be answered by charges of offensive, hyper-suspicious behavior on the part of German authorities.

* On the part of the Muslims, there is great interest “in not having their faith come under general suspicion.”

* You can bet your last dollar that the ummah has no interest at all to have their belief-system scrutinized in a court of law. But that is long overdue…

* Right. Its far better to keep those filthy kuffars stupid, why alert them unnecessarily to the teachings of the profit Muhammad? They will find out soon enough when the call for jihad comes…

Some comments: 

“Islam prohibits ratting out against ‘muslim brothers’. Thus, a ‘muslim brother’ enjoys full protection from the umma under Islam.” 

* For me, moderate Muslims are arguably a greater menace than radical Muslims precisely because they put a happy face on Islam for different reasons—-they actually fool themselves into thinking Islam is a good thing; they are too afraid to speak out and therefore spout soothing nothings about their faith; they believe Islam can evolve into a kinder, more understanding religion (it can’t); they’re hedging their bets, etc.—-and thus deceive way too many non-Muslims into thinking that a good religion has been hijacked, when in fact a bad religion has been obfuscated. Would that all Muslims were radicals (i.e., true Muslims) because then it would be far easier for all non-believers to see the rot that lies within.

Iran’s Rageboy Attacks Israel (Again)

Israel “cannot continue its life” – sez Ahmed-in-jihad

“Iran can help secure Iraq , Israel is cruel-”

Morsels of wisdom from the deluded one. Could it be that he is even more deluded than his prophet Mohammed ever was?

(CNN- Caliphate News Networkx) — Iran wants “peace and friendship for all,” the country’s president said Wednesday while again denying Western assertions his nation is pursuing nuclear weapons and trying to destabilize Iraq.

But Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took a hard line against Israel, calling it “an invader” and saying it “cannot continue its life.”

So much for peace and friendship for all.

Asked if Iran had launched a proxy war in Iraq — something the U.S. ambassador and top military commander there both asserted this week — Ahmadinejad said the United States is merely seeking a scapegoat for its failing campaign in Iraq.

“Forces have come into Iraq and destroyed the security, and many people are killed,” the Iranian president told Britain’s ITN during an interview in the garden of the Iranian presidential palace in Tehran.

“And there are some claims that may seem very funny and ridiculous. Those who have lots of weaponry and warfare and thousands of soldiers — if they are defeated, they blame others. There is no way to escape for peace.”

Uh, say what? Read the last line again

In regard to Israel, which Ahmadinejad has said should be politically “wiped off the map,” the Iranian president said there is a way to deal with the Jewish state without violence.

Giving as an example the dissolution of the Soviet Union — which he said came about “without war” — Ahmadinejad suggested that “everything would be solved” if the Palestinian people were allowed to vote on their fate.

However, his hard-line rhetoric resurfaced when Ahmadinejad said Israel “cannot continue its life.”

Taking up where the the nazis left off.

“Israel is an invader and is cruel, and it hasn’t got a united public. All other nations are against it,” he said. “We do not recognize them. They are attackers and illegal.”
