  • Report: Saudi judge considers paralysis punishment

    Associated Press ^ | 8-19-10 | SALAH NASRAWI,
    A Saudi judge has asked several hospitals in the country whether they could damage a man's spinal cord as punishment after he was convicted of attacking another man with a cleaver and paralyzing him, local newspapers reported on Thursday. Saudi Arabia enforces strict Islamic law and occasionally metes out punishments based on the ancient legal code of an eye-for-an-eye. However, Saudi King Abdullah has been trying to clamp down on extremist ideology. The reports said Abdul-Aziz al-Mutairi, 22, was left paralyzed after a fight more than two years ago and asked a judge to impose an equivalent punishment on his...

    On the night of April 5, Orland Park police arrested Nour Hadid, 26 after paramedics rushed her 2 year-old niece Bhia to Palos Community Hospital. The little girl was unconscious and died from severe injuries to her brain and kidneys, which she sustained during four days of beatings. Emergency room doctors said that her tiny body was covered with at least 55 bruises. Assistant State's Attorney Debra Lawler told reporters that Bhia had been beaten over and over with wooden spoons by Hadid. The Jordanian national, who was apparently enraged because her husband accused her of stealing money from him....

    Babylon's Covert War ^ | 30 SEPT 2008 | BCW
    The painting above was a gift to a regional embassy south of Baghdad and was presented to the staff as such. Understand that this particular painting is illustrating much about what Islam, in its true nature, actually represents. Unlike Christianity, where one would not see Jesus Christ welding a sword and cutting down those that oppose him, instead the viewer sees a violent action occurring that is quite normal in Islamic society. The painting revels several points about the ideology of Islam. First, the single attacker is being killed by the faceless Muhammad, as is the group as a whole....

    A ceramic bobblehead doll of the Prophet Muhammed - created to resemble the infamous caricature published by a Danish newspaper - is being hawked online for $22.99 a pop by an ex-Marine. The unapologetic creator, Timothy Ames, 28, said the bobblehead is similar to "dashboard Jesus" figurines that can be stuck with adhesive to flat surfaces. "I thought, 'If they flipped out over some cartoons what will they do with a dashboard Muhammed?'" Ames said from his home in Hawaii. But Islamic experts are not amused, saying the bobbleheads could anger Muslims, whose religion strictly prohibits depictions of the prophet....

The ambitious project to create a democratic region has resulted in the deaths of over seventy thousand people, mainly civilians, in the Middle East and beyond. Recent democratic elections in Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, the Palestinian Territories and Israel have resulted in more rather than less violence. For Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice this may be the acceptable “birth pangs of democracy” but for...
  • Muslim Leaders Call for 'Day of Rage' Over Pope's Comments (Friday)

    LONDON, Sept. 18, 2006 — Three words suddenly have a lot of Westerners worried and, it must be said, likely making some wrong assumptions about modern Islam. "Yaum al Ghadab" is Arabic for "Day of Rage." When the Qatari Islamic scholar Yusuf al-Qaradawi called for a Day of Rage this Friday in response to Pope Benedict XVI's remarks about Muslims, it might have sounded like a call for street violence. But if there is trouble Friday, and there could well be, it will not be because of language but because of what some people choose to do after they have...
  • HPD, airport security at odds over incident

    Houston police and the federal Transportation Security Administration disagree over who is responsible for allowing a man with what appeared to be bomb components board an aircraft at Hobby Airport last week. The report states that a man with a Middle Eastern name and a ticket for a Delta Airlines flight to Atlanta shook his head when screeners asked if he had a laptop computer in his baggage, but an X-ray machine operator detected a laptop. A search of the man's baggage revealed a clock with a 9-volt battery taped to it and a copy of the Quran, the report...

    The NY Times ran this article about riots in Nigeria related to the Mohammed Cartoons that I found on the Western Resistance site shows that the people of this world are getting fed up with Muslims and their agenda. It seems that some countries have been beginning to take more stringent action against Islam and its violent antics as well as the way they treat non-Mohammedans in countries around the globe. With statements such as “This is Igbo land, No more Muslims can live here” and “From today there is no more Mohammed” showing the patience of people around the...

    LAHORE: The Lahore Anti Terrorist Court on Thursday acquitted Yousaf Masih, of alleged blasphemy in Sangla Hill, and 88 people of burning churches because of lack of evidence. Justice Muqarab Khan gave the judgment on Wednesday and ordered the release of all accused. Masih was acquitted after the accuser told the court that Yousaf was not the man who burnt a Quran Mahal. Also, missionary representatives submitted that the arrested 88 Muslims were not those who set the churches and other missionary properties on fire. On February 18, the court ordered the release of 64 men, charged in the Sangla...

    According to the report, at least five terrorists believed to be linked to al-Qaida murdered six or more Christians by gunfire after asking them if they believed in Christ on the front doorsteps of their homes. The incident occurred on the morning of Feb. 2 in the village of Patikul on the small Philippine island of Jolo, which is predominantly Muslim. At least one witness said a baby girl was among the casualties. Five people were injured during the door-to-door questioning. The Islamic terrorist group Abu Sayyaf, which means "Bearer of the Sword" is assumed responsible for the attacks, as...

    Ankara, Feb. 9 (AP): The father of a teenager suspected of killing a Catholic priest said his son claimed he was ordered to carry out the shooting, a report said on Thursday. Rev. Andrea Santoro, a 60-year-old Italian, was shot to death Sunday at his church along the Black Sea Coast. Witnesses say the killer screamed ``Allahu Akbar,'' Arabic for ``God is great,'' before firing two bullets into Santoro's back as he kneeled to pray. The priest's body was returned to Italy on Tuesday. A 16-year-old boy was arrested on Tuesday. Police said they seized a 9mm handgun, and a...

    Bellsouth ^ | 2/8/06 | Associated Press
    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) - The Associated Press protested Wednesday the misleading inclusion of an AP photograph in a pamphlet purporting to show images offensive to Islam. The picture shows a bearded man wearing fake pig ears, a pig nose, and a pink embroidered cap on his head. He was wearing the costume while participating in a pig-squealing contest at an annual festival in a farm village in southern France last summer. The AP sent out the photo describing the pig-squealing contest on Aug. 14, 2005. The photo had no connection with Islam or the caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published...

    WE ARE ALL DANES NOW! Hindus consider it sacrilegious to eat meat from cows, so when a Danish supermarket ran a sale on beef and veal last fall, Hindus everywhere reacted with outrage. India recalled its ambassador to Copenhagen, and Danish flags were burned in Calcutta, Bombay, and Delhi. A Hindu mob in Sri Lanka severely beat two employees of a Danish-owned firm, and demonstrators in Nepal chanted: ''War on Denmark! Death to Denmark!"In many places, shops selling Dansk china or Lego toys were attacked by rioters, and two Danish embassies were firebombed. It didn't happen, of course. Hindus may...

Those elements are in play– definitely in play. Cartoon and War are a collision, words that should not appear in the same serious sentence. They are a collision of values. But that’s the core of this, isn’t it? Likewise, the very real violence and anger add a heavy, instructive irony. The war between open and closed societies is not superficial,...

    The controversy over the publication of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed is expanding, as more Muslims join the boycott and protests against Denmark and various European newspapers decide to publish the cartoons, mostly out of solidarity with Jyllands Posten and to make a strong political stand. One issue that puzzles many Danes is the timing of this outburst. The cartoons were published in September: Why have the protests erupted from Muslims worldwide only now? The person who knows the answer to this question is Ahmed Abdel Rahman Abu Laban, a man that the Washington Post has recently profiled as “one...

    Last week, Muslims marched in the centre of London chanting "Freedom go to Hell!" There could be no more graphic illustration of the paradox at the heart of the cartoon row. These protesters were exercising - and in many cases abusing - the freedom of protest and freedom of assembly that are foundation stones of British democracy. Yet, even as they exploited these hard-won liberties, they were calling for them to be abolished. This newspaper would not have published the cartoons of Mohammed at the centre of this controversy, images which we regard as vulgar and fatuously insulting. But -...

    Muslims all over the world are outraged over a series of cartoons that have appeared in European newspapers in recent months that feature the prophet Mohammed in ways that suggest he condones terrorism. Al Jazeera reports, for instance: "Up to 300 Indonesian Muslims went on a rampage in the lobby of a building housing the Danish embassy in Jakarta on Friday. Shouting 'Allahu Akbar' [God is Greatest], they smashed lamps with bamboo sticks, threw chairs, lobbed rotten eggs and tomatoes and tore up a Danish flag."
