Christian Convert Faces Persecution in Afghanistan

“No Muslim tolerates a man who commits blasphemous acts.”

Mob allowed to attack Christians accused of blasphemy in broad daylight ~ 7 were burnt alive in Gorja massacre 2009.

“Man accused of blasphemy killed in Pakistan,” from Indian Express, November 18 (thanks to Weasel Zippers)

As for the billions ~ after $$100 million$ were sent to Pakistan ~ for the SWAT refugee crisis ~ Pakistan Christians were turned away from official camps ~ they were told their food was ‘unclean’ ~ and that they could not cook next to Muslims. As a result they never gained refugee status ~ and did not receive compensation for property loss as Muslim citizens got.

In a story about the Asia Bibi blasphemy case in Pakistan, CNN goes out of its way to say that the Qur’an and Hadith do not contain a death penalty for blasphemy, thereby implying that Asia Bibi is in danger of death because of cultural or political factors, not because of anything that needs to be addressed within Islam. This is a familiar mainstream media practice when it comes to stories about honor killing or genital mutilation: the story will inevitably assure the reader that the practice in question has nothing to do with Islam, and give no hint of why it is so widely tolerated and practiced in Islamic countries. This only assures that the human rights establishment will never address these issues properly, and thus these practices will continue.

Neither the Koran nor the prophet Muhammad’s teachings in the Hadith call for the execution of blasphemers, but Islamic scholars and jurists from generations past included the death sentence when drafting Islamic law.

Islam QA disagrees, and uses both Qur’an and Hadith to make its argument:

The rioting "youths" of France: 'outbursts of hate and anti-French racism'

Sarkozy sets the heavy squad on the riots as demonstrations over French pension reforms continue for ninth day  (Daily Mail)

“Disaffected youth from the ghettos aren’t marching to defend retirement at 60…”

The rioters of the past few days are, mainly, from the ghettos. The hooded thugs aren’t marching to defend retirement at 60, or even the welfare system which enticed their parents or grandparents.  They’re there to battle the Republic, its culture and it’s most visible symbols: the security forces, the schools. That’s why a school was burned down in Mans. The scenes of urban guerrilla warfare that they’re reproducing are very similar to the images of the intifada of the young Palestinians confronting the Israeli forces.

  • Marseilles, Paris’s Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports affected
  • Passengers forced to carry their own luggage off planes
  • 3,000 of the country’s 12,000 petrol stations have run dry

    What has the Pali scarf, the keffiyeh, to do with French pensions?

    The French government  responds as they do to any conflict - they simply surrender! In doing so they have once again demonstrated their profound propensity to surrender, this time actually surrendering to themselves, and a future of scocialism with little hope of reform.

    French riots continue to escalate/ Toronto Sun

    Islam in Europe presents:

    Yesterday I posted an article about the French rioters, many of whom are disaffected youth from the ghettos. Today a reader sent me two more articles which point the finger at North-African Muslim youth.

    Ivan Rioufol, of Le Figaro, wrote the following on his blog (FR):

    All students are obviously not rioters. But the rioters of the past few days – and Wednesday morning again in the center of Lyon – are indeed students. They are, mainly, from the ghettos. The hooded people aren’t marching to defend retirement at 60, or even the welfare system which enticed their parents or grandparents.

    Ayodhya: "Disputed Territory" or the Lost Honor of Historians?

    Building Mosques over  holy sites of conquered nations is a Mohammedan speciality. It manifests the ideology of Islam as a supremacist juggernaut:

    The mere fact that the Rama Janmabhumi (Rama’s birthplace) site in Ayodhya is well-established as a sacred site for Hindu pilgrimage, is reason enough to protect its functioning as a Hindu sacred site, complete with proper Hindu temple architecture. Ayodhya doesn’t have this status in any other religion, though ancient Buddhism accepted Rama as an earlier incarnation of the Buddha. The site most certainly doesn’t have such a status in Islam, which imposed a mosque on it, the Babri Masjid (ostensibly built in 1528, closed by court order after riots in 1935, surreptitiously turned into a Hindu temple accessible only to a priest in 1949, opened for unrestricted Hindu use in 1986, and demolished by Hindu militantsin 1992). So, the sensible and secular thing to do, even for those sceptical of every religious belief involved, is to leave the site to the Hindus. The well-attested fact that Hindus kept going there even when a mosque was standing, even under Muslim rule, is helpful to know in order to gauge its religious importance; but is not strictly of any importance in the present. For respecting its Hindu character, it is sufficient that the site has this sacred status today.

    Fanatical Frenzy "Erupts" Over Jailing of "Daughter of the Nation"

    Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani woman  trained as a scientist in the U.S. was sentenced to 86 years in prison Thursday after she was convicted of trying to kill U.S. Army soldiers and FBI agents in Afghanistan two years ago. (WSJ)

    As ever, “eruptions” are awfully easy to come by there. An update on this story. “Pakistan erupts over jailing of scientist Aafia Siddiqui,” from Agence France-Presse, September 24 (thanks to JW):

    Pakistani police used tear gas to disperse protesters who shouted “Death to America” in outrage after a US court jailed a woman scientist for 86 years for attempting to murder US officers.

    In a case that has been condemned across the nuclear-armed Muslim nation of 167 million, the government said it would petition Washington to secure the mother of three’s repatriation on humanitarian grounds.

    A New York court found Aafia Siddiqui, the once brilliant scientist dubbed “Lady Qaeda” by the US tabloids, guilty of the attempted murder of US military officers in Afghanistan in 2008 – five years after she disappeared.

    In Karachi, Siddiqui’s home town and Pakistan’s largest city, police fired tear gas shells to prevent scores of people from marching on the US consulate at the behest of the youth wing of Islamist party Jamaat-e-Islami (JI).

    Paki protesters burn effigies of U.S. President Hussein Obama (R) and former Paki President Pervez Musharraf, during a protest in Multan, September 24, 2010, to condemn the verdict against Aafia Siddiqui. A U.S. judge imposed an effective life term of 86 years on Thursday on Pakistani neuroscientist Siddiqui convicted of shooting at FBI agents and soldiers after her arrest in Afghanistan.

    The protesters shouted “Death to America”, “Allahu akbar” (God is greater),“Free Aafia Siddiqui” and “Down with the US system of justice”.

    The last one — that’s ultimately what it’s all about, isn’t it?

    Hundreds more took to the streets in Pakistan’s second largest city of Lahore. Cricket hero-turned-politician Imran Khan led a rally to condemn the verdict as “unethical and inhuman”, an AFP reporter said.

    They condemned President Asif Ali Zardari and Khan, who heads the party Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (Pakistan Movement for Justice), warned that the verdict could fan anti-Americanism across Pakistan and the Muslim world.

    Hundreds more rallied under the auspices of the JI in Lahore, shouting “Go America Go, Free Aafia Siddiqui”.

    “The judgement against Siddiqui is based on anti-Muslim policy of the US,” said Liaqat Baluch, the senior JI leader who led the rally.

    In Islamabad, police stopped dozens of Islamic students from marching on the US embassy to hand over a protest note. The crowd shouted “Crush America”,“Siddiqui is our sister” and “We will bring her back”.

    Dozens of lawyers and activists blocked traffic in the central city of Multan, shouting “Down with America” and setting fire to an effigy of President Barack Obama and former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, an AFPreporter said….

    A plea deal. For an enemy combatant and jihadist who came so close to massacring hundreds, in a case that could not be more airtight in terms of evidence and witnesses. It should not be within the realm of possibility that Abdulmutallab could ever be a free man again. And yet, somehow, it is.

    Riot charges against  (fake) asylum seekers dropped

    The Commonwealth DPP has dropped charges against two asylum seekers who were accused of taking part in a riot at Christmas Island last November.

    Six Sri Lankan men remain on trial in the Perth Magistrates Court charged with rioting and weapons offences.

    Defence lawyers will today argue the video interview of another of the accused men is inadmissible as evidence and his charges should also be dropped.

    The Battle for France

    What caused the riots? Karim Boudouda was an authentic bad guy, no doubt about it. He’d piled up a stack of convictions for armed robbery in his 27 years, and when he held up a casino in the little French town of Uriage-les-Bains last month, he was armed to the teeth with an Uzi submachine gun and a Swiss-made assault rifle. Fleeing the police, the Algerian-born French citizen headed for his home turf in a dilapidated housing project filled with immigrants on the outskirts of Grenoble. In the shootout that followed, Boudouda died with a bullet in his head. For three nights the neighborhood where he’d taken shelter erupted in the kind of violence that swept outer-city slums throughout France in 2005. Dozens of cars went up in flames as young thugs taunted the cops, who poured in by the hundreds. Somebody fired live rounds at the police, which is rare in a French riot, but nobody else died. None of the cops were wounded. This time there was no chain reaction. The violence didn’t spread. The fires died.  More from Newsweep>>

    The Battle for France by Stephen Brown What a difference a riot can make. The three nights of armed mayhem in a Muslim quarter of Grenoble in July that saw numerous cars burned, police officers fired upon and their families threatened has ignited an unexpected and energetic response from France’s politicians. In what may be the last chance to halt France’s slide into anarchy as well as an indication of how endangered the French social order is, the country’s center-right ruling party, the Union pour un Mouvement Populaire (Union for a Popular Movement (UMP)), is set to introduce two constitutional amendmentsinto the National Assembly next month to deal with the country’s deterioratingsocial situation. Both concern cancelling French citizenship for convicted criminals. France’s immigration minister, Eric Besson, the person responsible for drafting the amendments, said revoking French citizenship is not anti-constitutional and therefore will receive clearance from France’s constitutional council. The forfeiture of French nationality, Besson says, currently exists in France, but only for convictions for serious offences like terrorism and espionage. Before 1998, however, it was allowed under common law “for a certain number of crimes.” “It is relatively simple,” said Besson. “It suffices to return to the law that prevailed until 1998. That is not anti-constitutional.” Frontpagemag

    Qaeda’s north Africa wing calls Sarkozy ‘enemy of Allah,’ wants revenge against France

    DUBAI (AFP) – Al-Qaeda’s north Africa branch called for revenge against France and labelled its President Nicolas Sarkozy an “enemy of Allah” over a deadly raid last month, in an online message seen by AFP on Monday. On August 2, jailed AQIM leader El Khadim Ould Semane also threatened France and Mauritania with retaliation. “I say to the infidels and French Crusaders… (we) will not rest until French blood has been spilled,” Semane had said.

    Prince of Veils

    Prince Charles yesterday urged the world to follow Islamic ‘spiritual principles’ in order to protect the environment

    In an hour-long speech, the heir to the throne argued that man’s destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions – but particularly those of Islam…

    Even the Mohammedans in the audience look bored…..

    Charles, who is a “practicing Christian” and will become the head of the Church of England when he succeeds to the throne, spoke in depth about his own study of the Koran which, he said, tells its followers that there is ‘no separation between man and nature’ and says we must always live within our environment’s limits.

    Charlie seems to be barking up the wrong tree. Perhaps he should stop watching the Goracles “inconvenient truth and pay more attention to what’s happening closer to home:

    Weyman Bennett Charged With Conspiracy To Commit Violent Disorder

    Sample:

    Unite Against Fascism advertised this event as a confrontation between their supporters and the EDL. The slogan, “No Passaran” does not inevitably mean a physical confrontation, but its association with military struggle, and in particular the Siege of Madrid, does tend to promise a bit of a ruck.

    The EDL should be confronted. It is right to show solidarity with British Muslims against these hoodlums.

    As a result, Weyman Bennett not only gets the chance to play the martyr, but runs the real risk that he will be imprisoned. I feel sorry for him, and hope that – if the Crown Prosecution Service proceeds against him – it is on the basis of very strong evidence that he was actively involved in concrete and detailed plans to commit violent disorder: and not merely on the grounds that he was a little bit mouthy.

    Israel Under Siege

    Our peace partners from Fatah incite Arabs to barricade themselves on the Temple Mount

    The ‘moderate’ Fatah terror organization (our ‘peace partner’) has joined a call by Sheikh Raed Salleh’s Northern Front Islamic organization (‘Israeli Arabs’) for Arabs to storm the Temple Mount and barricade themselves inside al-Aqsa mosque on the Mount.

    Meanwhile, the police have denied a Jewish group’s request to hold a cornerstone laying ceremony for a Third Jewish Temple (the first two having been destroyed 2,600 years ago and 2,000 years ago).

    Who is spoiling for a fight?

    The ‘Palestinian’ call is linked to Monday’s re-dedication of the Churva synagogue in Jerusalem’s Old City.

    Is there anything Jews do in Israel that is not a ‘provocation’ to ‘Palestinians’? Probably not. After all, when we die (God save us), we are buried somewhere in the country. Anything we do while alive, the ‘Palestinians’ consider ‘provocative.’ Carl in J’lem

    Biden leaves, ‘Palestinian Authority’ honors mass murderer

    Remember, the Fatah guys are the “moderates.” Partners for peace and all that. And in this case, the “provocation” du jour is the renovation of a synagogue situated in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem — still enough fuel for some quality conspiracy paranoia.
