    Saudi Arabia has executed an Indonesian maid who killed her employer during a rape attack, sparking outrage in Jakarta. Ms Tursilawati, who was working in the city of Ta'if, was found guilty of killing her employer in June 2011.  Indonesian President President Joko Widodo called Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, demanding to know why Jakarta had not been informed about Monday's execution of mother-of one Tuti Tursilawati. It was the fourth time in three years that Saudi Arabia had failed to notify Jakarta before executing an Indonesian migrant worker.     'We have called Saudi Arabia's foreign minister and conveyed our protest,' Mr...
  • Surge of anti-gay attacks in France are 'just the tip of the iceberg' say activists

    Anti-gay attacks in France are 'just the tip of the iceberg' with many going unreported because victims fear they won't be listened too, claim activists. Figures from the French interior ministry show that at a national level, complaints of homophobic attacks have increased by 15 per cent since the beginning of 2018. However a report from rights group SOS Homophobie shows only four per cent of victims of homophobic insults file a complaint and the amount of physical attacks reported to them equates to 'one assault every three days', reports France 24.
  • Trump: Middle East is 'a nasty part of the world'

    The Hill ^ | 10/23/18 04:51 PM EDT | MEGAN KELLER
    President Trump on Tuesday referred to the Middle East as a "nasty part of the world" while addressing both the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and human rights abuses committed by Iran. The president made the comments amid a growing crisis over the death of Khashoggi, who Turkish officials say was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier in October. His death has led to calls from Republicans and Democrats alike to condemn Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and end a $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia. While discussing the crisis on Tuesday, he pointed to...

    An aid worker with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been killed in Nigeria by Islamist militants who kidnapped her last March. Hauwa Liman, a midwife, was killed days after kidnappers set a deadline. The ICRC said it was devastated by the news. The Nigerian government called the murder "inhuman and ungodly". Ms Liman was taken with two others in the northern Nigerian town of Rann. Fellow midwife Saifura Ahmed Khorsa was killed last month. A 15-year-old schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu, is being held by the same militant group, Islamic State West Africa Province (Iswap), which is affiliated...

    The slave market opened at night. We could hear the commotion downstairs where militants were registering..., and when the first man entered the room, all the girls started screaming. It was like the scene of an explosion. We moaned as though wounded, doubling over and vomiting on the floor, but none of it stopped the militants. They paced around the room, staring at us, while we screamed and begged. They gravitated toward the most beautiful girls first, asking, “How old are you?” and examining their hair and mouths. “They are virgins, right?” they asked a guard, who nodded and said,...

    Actress and Broadway star Bette Midler melted down on Twitter Thursday night, declaring that women “are the N-word of the world” and are “the most disrespected creatures on earth.” “‘Women, are the n-word of the world.’” Midler tweeted, which is the name of a song written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. “Raped, beaten, enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals; denied education and inheritance; enduring the pain and danger of childbirth and life IN SILENCE for THOUSANDS of years,” Bette Midler wrote in a tweet she later deleted. “They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.” Midler’s tweet came...

    PALU, Indonesia, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Indonesia is in a race against time to save victims of a devastating earthquake and tsunami on Sulawesi island, the government said on Tuesday, as the official death toll rose to more than 1,200 and looting fueled fears of lawlessness. Four days after the double disaster struck, officials feared the toll could soar, as most of the confirmed dead had come from Palu, a small city 1,500 km (930 miles) northeast of Jakarta. Some remote areas have been largely cut off after Friday's 7.5 magnitude quake triggered tsunami waves, destroying roads and bridges, and...

    **SNIP** Doc Greene, a local radio talk-show personality, helped organize the protest that drew roughly two dozen members from the Texas Patriot Network and white supremacist groups. “We’re clearly outnumbered,” he said. “But we’re never outpowered.” Across the police barriers, a group of roughly 80 counterprotesters held signs and chanted phrases, including “Nazis, go home.” Counterprotesters included members of the Houston Socialist Movement, International Socialist Organization, National Domestic Workers Alliance, Refuse Fascism, Socialist Alternative, Young Communist League, Huey P. Newton Gun Club and New Black Panther Party.

    Crisis Magazine ^ | August 10, 2018 | William Kilpatrick
    In my last piece for Crisis, I emphasized the importance of casting doubts on Islamic beliefs just as we cast doubts on Soviet Communist ideology during the Cold War. With that in mind, let’s talk about the Koran. It’s the fountain from which the ideology flows. It is quoted incessantly by terrorist leaders and imams alike, and it provides the motivation for both armed jihadists in combat fatigues, and cultural jihadists in business suits.So it would seem logical for those threatened by Islam to cast doubts on the Koran. If the Koran came to be seem as a man-made fabrication...

    A war monitoring group says Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters seized 36 women and children during simultaneous attacks on the southeastern province of Sweida last week. The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Monday that 20 women and 16 children were seized from al-Shobki village in Sweida during the Wednesday attacks. The ambush by suspected ISIS militants left at least 221 people dead. Reports on social media suggest ISIS has sent photos of some of the kidnapped women, most of them from the minority Druze sect prevalent in Sweida, to their families in via WhatsApp. The...

The puir wee bairn had rammed a cop with his car, trying to run him over, so the police shot him. Oh, the humanity! Now the mischievous youngsters are engaged in the traditional culture-enriching pastimes of throwing Molotov cocktails at police while torching buildings and cars.

    A Washington think tank has warned that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is holding a number of Western nationals in jail to use them as “bargaining chips” against their countries in what they called “hostage diplomacy.”A 36-page report released on June 1 and titled “Erdogan’s Hostage Diplomacy – Western Nationals in Turkish Prisons” by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) said more than 30 Western nationals have been jailed in Turkey since a military coup attempt on July 15, 2016.At least nine of them remained in prison as of June 1, 2018, noted the report, co-authored by FDD fellows Eric...

    As a member of Mauritania's slave-owning class, Abdel Nasser Ould Ethmane could have had anything he wanted as a present for his circumcision ceremony: a toy, money, a camel, or, as his brother would choose, a bicycle. But the 7-year-old wanted something more sinister. He chose Yebawa Ould Keihel, a young boy with skin the color of coal. At that moment, Abdel became a slave master. It's an experience that's common here in Mauritania, a vast country in West Africa's Sahara Desert where activists and the United Nations estimate 10% to 20% of people are enslaved -- usually dark-skinned people...

    The passing of Bernard Lewis last week at the age of 101 recalls to mind perhaps his most famous book title about the Muslim world, What Went Wrong? But maybe a successor of sorts has been found in Duke University economist Timur Kuran, who has a long article forthcoming in the Journal of Economic Literature that paints a pretty bleak picture of the economic and social structure of Islamic nations. Just check out the abstract of the article, which is bland in language but harsh in its conclusions:
