  • Muslim Boils Bride Alive When He Finds What She Didn’t Bring On Wedding Day

    A Muslim man held a festering grudge against his young bride since the day of their wedding, prompting him to take gruesome revenge. Finally fed up, he took a large pot of boiling water from the stove and poured it over his wife’s head, literally melting her face and body. When police arrived, they were told that the horrific scene was all because of what the woman still hadn’t given to her husband since the day of their wedding. The barbarity of Islamic culture has not only survived 1,400 years of the rest of the world’s progress, but it is...

    In France, Muslim migrants burned down the refugee shelters that the French government spent 20 million euros to build for them. The humanitarian gesture of providing migrants with proper beds, showers, electricity and heating was spurned by ungrateful refugees as "far below the accommodations kafirs are obliged to provide us," according to an immigrant from Africa. "The so-called housing is dormitories. We demand private apartments with big-screen TVs, wifi, and all the normal standards enjoyed by the dhimmis." In Saxony, Germany, Muslim immigrants showed their dissatisfaction with government efforts to accommodate them by masturbating into a jacuzzi and defecating into...

    Planned Parenthood's Moral and Economic Corruption: " . . . turned barbarism into commerce." Hat tip here to Guy Benson at Hot Air, who noticed this from a Monday post, and recognized as I do here that it’s just too good not to share even if it is a few days old. The debate over Joni Ernst’s measure to de-fund Planned Parenthood really came down to a choice each senator had to make between the reality of what’s happening in those human slaughterhouses, and the political imperative Democrats feel to turn a blind eye to any and all evil because...

    The ACLU has filed suit alleging that an Arizona law that bars sex-selective and race-based abortions is racist. The suit was filed on behalf of the NAACP and the National Asian-Pacific American Women’s Forum. Alexa Kolbi-Molinas of the ACLU insisted that “this law has a racially disparate effect as its intent. African-Americans are nearly four times as likely to opt for abortion as the end point of a pregnancy compared to whites. Consequently, the Arizona law has a chilling impact on what should be a freely taken choice.” “The barrier to sex-selective abortions introduces a culturally insensitive affront to persons...

    International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that 19 children, who were to be sold to fundamentalist Islamic boarding schools (madrassas), have been rescued. Traffickers lied to the children’s parents, saying they would take the children to Christian boarding schools in Dhaka, when in fact, they were intending to sell the children to various madrassas. Students from Dhaka University discovered the children and rescued them. This is not the first instance of Christian children being trafficked to madrassas, as upwards of 150 children have been rescued from similar situations since July 2012.

Nine years after watching his mother's hanging, Shin In Geun squirmed through the electric fence that surrounds Camp 14 and ran off through the snow into the North Korean wilderness. It was January 2, 2005. Before then, no one born in a North Korean political prison camp had ever escaped. As far as can be...

    Dr. Antonio Pardo has explained that in animals, "..the interaction of other instincts (particularly dominance) can result in behavior that appears to be homosexual. Such behavior cannot be equated with an animal homosexuality. All it means is that animal sexual behavior encompasses aspects beyond that of reproduction." This scientific fact upsets radical homosexual activists who believe that homosexual behavior is observable in animals and that since homosexuality is in accordance with animal nature it must also be in accordance with human nature since man is also animal. This is their reasoning. Radical homosexual activist and dissenter Terence Weldon, who serves...

    A recent episode of the popular Arabic show al-Sharia wa al-Haya (Law and Life), which airs weekly on Al Jazeera and features renowned Muslim scholar Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, addressed the important yet little known Muslim concept of taysir (pronounced “tey-seer”). Qaradawi, who is touted by the likes of John Esposito and CAIR as a “moderate” — even as he legitimizes suicide attacks against Israel (including by women) and death for apostates — explained that, according to fiqh al-taysir (the “jurisprudence of ease”), Islam (like Catholicism) offers Muslims dispensations, whenever needed: “For Allah desires ease for you, not hardship” (Koran 2:185;...

    Having devastated vast areas of its own lands in the Caucasus, such as Chechnya and Ingushetia, in order to "protect" them from instability, Moscow's obliterating shadow has settled deep over Georgia -- with the usual consequences. The full barbarism of Russian actions in Georgia may not emerge for years; much of the evidence lies behind the lines in terrain newly annexed by Russia. But some details are now beyond dispute. Alongside the various human atrocities, such as the bombing and purging of civilian areas, the invaders looted and destroyed numerous historical sites, some of which were profoundly revered by the...

    A WOMAN who was trafficked across the border from Pakistan with her son, 3, was handed to an Afghan who raped her, then beat the toddler to death as she watched. He was jailed for 20 years for murder - but the woman, Rukhma, was jailed, too. She had put up with her mistreatment for three months before going to authorities. But in December, Rukhma, who doesn't know her age but looks younger than 20, was given a four-year sentence for adultery and "escaping her house" in Pakistan.

    WASHINGTON - Authorities are awaiting identification of the remains of three bodies in Iraq, a U.S. law enforcement official said Tuesday, a day after the remains of two kidnapped contractors were identified. Four other kidnapped Western contractors have been missing for more than a year. The disappearances received new attention this month when the severed fingers of several men were sent to the U.S. military in Iraq. Several relatives had taken the discovery of the fingers as a hopeful sign but hopes dimmed Monday when the FBI said the remains of Ronald Withrow of Roaring Springs, Texas, and John Roy...

    ‘Tribal violence’, ‘genocide’ and comparisons with Rwanda in 1994 characterised the early international media coverage of the post-election crisis in Kenya at the beginning of 2008. Such sensationalist reporting was not only analytically unhelpful - it was also irresponsibly dangerous. Kenya is not Rwanda, nor is it the metaphor for irrational, barbaric, ‘primordial’ African violence that the Western psyche seems to have an insatiable need for. Kenya must be understood on its own terms. As the Kenya Human Rights Commission has bravely borne witness to in its work, elections in 1992, 1997, 2002 and the 2005 referendum vote have all...

    New Jersey lawmakers are weighing legislation that would abolish the state’s death penalty. The prohibition on putting humans to death will not be extended to outlaw abortions, however. Democratic Governor Jon Corzine, said he was confident the legislation would become law some time this summer. “It is barbaric that we would deliberately extinguish the life of another human being,” he said. “This cruel practice must end.” Corzine rebuffed arguments that his unwavering support for abortion allows doctors to “deliberately extinguish the life of another human being.” “Abortions occur because these fetuses are unwanted,” Corzine said. “The same can’t be said...

The Sky is too Low, written by Muslim Ahmed Ghazali, featured the carcass of a dead lamb, which was slaughtered before every performance. When it hit the stage in Figueras, Catalonia, about 12 people objected. They complained about the fact its neck was slit and it was left to bleed to death in the manner favoured by Halal butchers. The objectors, supported by animal rights activists, pressed authorities to force the theatre group La Invencio Teatral to withdraw the dead animal...

    WHERE WAS THE OUTRAGE THEN? "Saddam Hussein was responsible for massive human rights violations, but that can't justify giving him the death penalty, which is a cruel and inhuman punishment," said Richard Dicker, director of Human Rights Watch's International Justice Program, after the former dictator was hanged early Saturday for the deaths of 148 townspeople. What's wrong with this statement? For starters, "massive human rights violations" is the understatement of the year. Is that what we now call genocide, cold-blooded murder of men, women and children? Do we consider Adolf Hitler to have committed "human rights violations," or do we...

    HAIFA, Israel -- The rockets Hezbollah is raining down on Haifa and much of northern Israel are distinctly different from the Soviet-built katyushas of earlier wars, Israeli officials say. Instead of standard military fragmentation warheads – deadly enough – Hezbollah's rockets are packed with thousands of tiny ball-bearings, which burst out from the warhead in every direction like so many bullets. "This kind of rocket gives no one a chance," Haifa police chief, Commander Nir Meriash, told NewsMax today.

    The debate about neonatal circumcision is over. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), neonatal circumcision is the result of ignorance, bad medical practice and American social and cultural pressure. Regarding the three most commonly cited justifications for neonatal circumcision (penile cancer, venereal disease and penile hygiene), the AAP now states that the benefits are negligible, which means that the majority of American men are walking around without foreskins for no good reason. Yet, the barbaric practice shows no sign of abating, and for this reason I plan to shed some light on the cultural dark spot of circumcision....

But his wife, caregivers and South Carolina state officials are so focused on carrying out a decade-old, out-of-state living will that 79-year-old Jimmy Chambers can't get a word in edgewise. That's the account of 10 of Chambers's children and their spouses who signed sworn affidavits in an attempt to block their mother from removing his life-sustaining ventilator, which would cause his death.

    THE HEADLINES out of Tehran concern the predictable failure of yet another round of farcical negotiations designed to stop Iran's nuclear weapons program. Meanwhile, a much more dramatic story is unfolding with much less attention. Investigative journalist Akbar Ganji has been on a hunger strike since June 11 to protest his unwarranted imprisonment over the last five years for the crime of criticizing the theocratic thugs who have hijacked his country. Recently, he has been moved from prison to a hospital, where he is said to be at death's door. His condition is so perilous that even his advocate —...

    In Washington, D.C., politics dominate even the most casual conversations. During a cab ride home from the movies, the cabbie remarked: "Bush used the wrong word when he said �crusade.' That upset a lot of Muslims. You have no idea how many Muslims there are all around you. They will riot. You are in the heart of it ... where you live. You see, if there is a war, they will riot." He pointed out the window to a hill decorated with a large wooden cross. "I will see you there." "What do you mean you will see me there?"...

    Oriana Fallaci's is not a household name in the United States but Ms Fallaci's name cannot be uttered in Europe without generating a heated reaction. Even though her 2002 book, The Rage and the Pride, was translated into English [By Fallaci] and sold many copies in the United States, it was on the other side of the ocean that intellectuals, politicians, and ordinary citizens passionately debated the views of the celebrated Italian journalist. The Rage and the Pride is either loved or hated; Ms Fallaci's positions leave no middle ground. Outraged by the events of 9/11, Fallaci criticizes both Muslims...

    Funny, a couple of years ago President Bush was ridiculed by liberals for placing Iran and North Korea within the “Axis of Evil.” Now with both those countries giving negotiators and interested parties the middle finger with uranium refining, missile and pending underground nuclear tests, the media decided these next items should dominate the recent news…. Cockeyed Payout Boston Mayor Thomas “Forest Gump” Menino said yesterday that the City of Boston will soon announce a settlement with the family of Victoria Snelgrove, the Emerson College student who was killed by a pepper pellet shot by Boston Police who had to...

    After Terri -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: March 28, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2005 As I write these words, Terri Schiavo is still clinging to life, disproving the specious and irrelevant claim that nearly 20 years ago she made a casual statement about not wanting to live "hooked up to machines." The claim is specious because it is nothing more than hearsay evidence from the man most determined – for whatever his motivations – to see her die. It is specious because it was consistently countered by many people who knew Terri better and longer than her husband, Michael Schiavo. It...

    As she emerges from her mud-walled house carried high on her elder brother's shoulder two-year-old Rabia is blissfully unaware of the life that awaits her. Two-year-old Rabia In 14 years, if the ruling of the village council – or panchayat – where she lives in rural Pakistan is obeyed, she will be married to a man 33 years her senior. The decision was taken last week as a punishment against her uncle, Mohammed Akmal, who was found to have slept with another man's wife. As part of the compensation deal he also agreed to pay 230,000 rupees (£2,175). According to...
  • Is circumcision the kiss of death or source of life?

    The national news media is abuzz with a story about the possible link between the tragic death of an infant Jewish boy from herpes and his circumcision. At the same time, the media has not fully reported on the fact that circumcision could save millions of lives from the scourge of AIDS. The problem is that circumcision is in the Bible, which makes it a serious violation of the religion practiced by the majority in academia and the mainstream media - secular fundamentalism. They have stood by while millions died and continue to die. How differently they value human life...

    Many thought there would at least be political calm after Chavez’ victory in the recall vote and the regional elections. No such luck, that is simply not the style. Chavez thrives on conflict, on pushing people to see how far he may go. When the Governor of Cojedes decreed the intervention of some farms in that state, many thought it was another footnote in the revolution, something even reasonable. I didn’t. That is simply not the style, Chavez was in China when this happened, but few of these Governors act alone or even have a mind of their own, they...

    The Rishon Letzion Magistrate's Court on Tuesday ordered the former rabbi of the Gan Yavneh local council to pay a child and his parents NIS 1.18 million in damages after the child was left severely disfigured when he was circumcised by the rabbi. The rabbi, Mehumar Tzubari, performed the religious ceremony on the child in April 1995. A few hours after the ceremony, the mother realized that the tip of the child's penis was blacked and called the rabbi. He checked the area, applied iodine ointment and told the mother not to worry and that "everything will be fine." After...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Bush administration on Wednesday announced it was giving $20 million in direct aid to the Palestinian Authority to help it through a financial crisis. A senior Bush administration official said it hoped the aid would encourage additional donations from other countries "at a time when the Palestinian Authority is in desperate need of budget support to pay its bills, maintain stability and allow it to focus on the larger question of governing." The Palestinian Authority is facing a severe financial crisis due to falling tax revenues during four years of violence which has paralyzed the Palestinian...

    Five days before 9/11, Charles Vincent bought his first Koran. Six weeks later, while smoke was still pouring from the remains of the World Trade Center, he formally converted to Islam in the mosque attached to the Islamic Cultural Center on 96th Street and Third Avenue in New York City. A blonde, blue-eyed 29-year-old from Torrance, California, he readily admits that he chose an unlikely moment to fall in love with the world's most newsworthy religion. But in the three years since, his devotion to Islam has only deepened. Like a growing number of white Americans and Europeans, he has...
