    QALQILIYA, West Bank (AP) — A mysterious blogger who set off an uproar in the Arab world by claiming he was God and hurling insults at the Prophet Muhammad is now behind bars — caught in a sting that used Facebook to track him down. The case of the unlikely apostate, a shy barber from this backwater West Bank town, is highlighting the limits of tolerance in the Western-backed Palestinian Authority — and illustrating a new trend by authorities in the Arab world to mine social media for evidence.

    While America prepared to watch another round of Monday Night Football, freedom of speech again went on trial in Europe. The criminal prosecution of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Woff (photo above) began today in Vienna, Austria. Elisabeth, a wife and mother, is charged with denigrating religious teachings – specifically Muslim teachings – for speaking publicly with quotes from the Koran and rendering her opinions of the same. She faces a year in prison if convicted. Gates of Vienna is covering the trial in considerable detail, with live blogging of questions and testimony during the proceedings.

    Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari on Monday pardoned Asia Bibi (also referred to as Asia Noreen by some media), the first woman sentenced to death for blasphemy. Bibi, who had been imprisoned for one-and-a-half years without being allowed to give her statement in court, was released soon after the presidential pardon. “This is the only acceptable outcome to what has been a travesty of justice from the outset,” said Nasir Saeed, coordinator for U.K.-based Center for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS). “Asia Bibi should never have been charged with blasphemy, let alone found guilty and sentenced to death.” Saeed...

    A court hearing Wednesday on whether a television reporter must turn over notes of an interview with accused killer Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan instead became a forum for Hassan to accuse his jailers of torturing and plotting to kill him. Hassan asked a judge to "fire" Sheriff Timothy B. Howard because of the alleged actions of sheriff's deputies in the Erie County Holding Center, claims that a Sheriff's Office spokesman called "preposterous." Hassan, 45, who is awaiting trial on charges he murdered his wife in Orchard Park last year, told Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franczyk he was attacked and beaten...
  • Will Muslim Women Be Exempted From An Invasive Pat-Down Or Revealing Full-Body Scan In Airports?

    I wonder if Juan Williams (along with the rest of us) will have cause to be worried if Muslim women (in full body Muslim garb) are exempted from being given an invasive pat-down or given a rather revealing full body scan as a precondition to boarding a plane? BTW, an attorney on Shepard Smith's show on FOX News apparently said that the man who said that he didn't want to be scanned or touched had entered into a contract of mutual consent whereby he knew that he would have to be given a rather revealing full body scan or an...

    Logan's Warning ^ | Christopher Logan
    While far too many Americans are still unaware of the internal threat of Islam, Muslims continue to move forward with their goal of creating an Islamic world. A mission in which they have no concerns whatsoever for the beliefs of non-Muslims. Earlier this month I posted about the Islamic-World website, and their article which calls for Muslim parents to teach their children to join the jihad. Today I continue with another one of their articles. This one advices Muslim on getting their children to do their part in creating an Islamic world. As usual the site is very busy, and...

    sns-ap-as-indonesia-michelles-handshake JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — A conservative Muslim government minister admits he shook hands with first lady Michelle Obama in welcoming her to Indonesia but says it wasn't his choice. Footage on YouTube shows otherwise, sparking a debate that has lit up Facebook, Twitter and the rest of the blogosphere. "I tried to prevent (being touched) with my hands but Mrs. Michelle held her hands too far toward me (so) we touched," Information Minister Tifatul Sembiring told tens of thousands of followers on Twitter.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma Muslim has filed a federal lawsuit against a state ballot measure that prohibits state courts from considering international law or Islamic law when deciding cases. Muneer Awad, head of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oklahoma, filed the lawsuit Thursday, saying it is unconstitutional. The ballot question was approved in Tuesday's election with 70 percent of the vote. The lawsuit seeks a temporary retraining order to block the results of the election from being certified on Nov. 9. Joseph Thai, of the University of Oklahoma College of Law, says there is no danger of...

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma voters have approved a measure that would forbid judges from considering international law or Islamic law when deciding cases. Republican Rex Duncan, the sponsor of the measure, called it a "pre-emptive strike" designed to close the door on activist judges "legislating from the bench or using international law or Sharia law." Members of the Muslim community called the question an attack on Islam and some of them said they are prepared to file a lawsuit challenging the measure.

I would like to discuss with your accurate prediction about a London borough becoming an Islamic republic. What’s going on? Geller: Thanks Jamie. As I predicted at my website Atlas Shrugs, a vile Islamic supremacist, Lutfur Rahman, has been elected executive mayor of the London borough of Tower Hamlets. And he has accomplished this through massive voter fraud — isn’t this always how they get their way? FP: It appears to be the case, yes. Tower Hamlets is the poorest...

    The marriage of a government official to a 12-year-old girl has inflamed a long simmering battle over marriage to minors, pitting Saudi human rights activists and at least one prominent Muslim sheikh against government officials who have been accused of failing to curb the widespread practice. The fact that the unidentified groom, who lives in the city of Najran, was a mazoun, or marriage official, whose job it is to preside over the signing of marriage contracts, only added to the outrage over the marriage among many Saudis. Many families marry their daughters to older men for financial benefits, getting...

    Imagine the furor if a televangelist went on TV and told viewers Christianity would conquer the world and that the flag of Christianity would fly over the White House. Network reporters would seize the moment as an example of the evils of America’s supposed Christian theocracy. Radical Islamists would likely do as they did during the Koran burning episode or after the Danish cartoons were published. People might die. Thankfully, that didn’t happen. What did happen is far scarier. ABC News held a townhall meeting, bringing on experts to ask the question: “Should Americans fear Islam?” Thanks to ABC, we...

    Waitrose is to introduce a range of non-halal lamb products as a response to customers’ concerns about its meat supplies. Until now, all lamb sold by the store has been slaughtered in accordance with Islamic law, with a Muslim reciting a prayer in Arabic over the meat. But Waitrose said last night that, from now on, organic Welsh lamb from its Duchy Originals range – established by Prince Charles to market produce from his estates – will no longer be halal. Waitrose said they made their decision in order to give customers ‘more choice’. But their reversal of policy comes...

    Jurors in Michigan have rejected the concept of a "dhimmi" status for Christians, ruling that four evangelists who went to an Arab festival not just to be present but to "change minds" did not commit a breach of peace as police had claimed. The word comes from the Thomas More Law Center, which defended the four Christians after they were charged for being at an Arab festival June 18 in Dearborn, Mich. The verdict came from a jury of six Dearborn residents late Friday, who concluded that Nabeel Qureshi, Paul Rezkalla, Negeen Mayel and David Wood were not guilty of...

    A Saudi man married four women at the same time just to prove his ex-wife was wrong when she told him no other woman would marry him. Alwatan said the man paid his four new wives around SR80,000 (Dh78,000) as dowry (money paid by bridegrooms to their brides under Islamic law). The man also paid SR10,000 (Dh9,900) in expenses for his honey moon, the paper added, without making clear if the honey moon involved all the four. Under Islamic law, Muslim men can have four wives at the same time and such an edict has given rise to polygamy in...
