    BBC Bengali, Dhaka ^ | Thursday, April 18, 2019 | Mir Sabbir
    Nusrat Jahan Rafi was doused with kerosene and set on fire at her school in Bangladesh. Less than two weeks earlier, she had filed a sexual harassment complaint against her headmaster. Her courage in speaking out against sexual assault, her death five days after being set alight and everything that happened in-between has gripped Bangladesh and brought attention to the vulnerability of sexual harassment victims in this conservative South Asian country. Nusrat, who was 19, was from Feni, a small town 100 miles (160km) south of Dhaka. She was studying at a madrassa, or Islamic school. On 27 March, she...

    A leading academic and cleric from World Cup host country Qatar has filmed a shocking guide on how Muslim men should beat their wives. The vile video features Abd Al-Aziz Al-Khazraj demonstrating how to "punish" a woman in accordance with Islamic law. The man used a school-age boy as part of his demonstration. In a further sick move, the sociologist used a school-age boy called Nayef to show how to deliver beatings “out of love” - so a woman can feel a “man’s strength.”(snip)

    Secretary-General of the Muslim World League (MWL), Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa said there is no deal between Saudi Arabia and the Vatican on building churches in Saudi Arabia. Al-Issa said during an interview with Russia Today TV channel on Friday that reports of such a deal are “unfounded”, however, he explained that the League had signed a memorandum of understanding with the Vatican. Al-Issa visited the Pope in the Vatican two years ago.

    New Islamic criminal laws that took effect in Brunei on Wednesday, punishing gay sex and adultery by stoning offenders to death, have triggered an outcry from countries, rights groups and celebrities far beyond the tiny Southeast Asian nation's shores. The penalties were provided for under new sections of Brunei's Shariah Penal Code. Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah instituted the code in 2014 to bolster the influence of Islam in the oil-rich monarchy of around 430,000 people, two-thirds of whom are Muslim. Even before 2014, homosexuality was already punishable in Brunei by a jail term of up to 10 years. The first stage...

    Hagia Sophia to Be Turned Into Mosque in Response to US Shift on Golan - Erdogan ANKARA (Sputnik) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday he planned to turn landmark Hagia Sophia, a former Greek Orthodox cathedral in Istanbul, into a mosque after this month’s elections in response to the US policy shift on the Golan Heights. "After municipal elections, it [temple] will be converted back into a mosque from a museum. As US president Trump declares Jerusalem the capital of Israel and the Golan Heights an Israeli territory, Turkey will give an adequate response as the rotating chair...

    Even as the New Zealand government was condemning the Erdogan regime for using mosque shooting footage in its election rallies, the Washington Post decided to give the Islamist tyrant a platform. It was the second time in six months that The Post had given Erdogan a platform. Recep Tayyip Erdogan has prisons full of political dissidents. He has silenced the media and has tortured opponents. His brutal Islamist regime has been described as the world’s biggest jailor of journalists. It’s been estimated that a third of the world’s imprisoned journalists have been locked up by his regime. But that didn’t...
  • New Zealand Goes Full Islam After Mosque Attacks

    03/22/2019 1:36:55 PM PDT · by rktman · 61 replies ^ | 3/22/2019 | J Gill
    New Zealand politicians, members of the media, and non-Muslim women embraced displays of Muslim faith Friday in an effort to show solidarity with the country’s Muslim community after the Christchurch shootings. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern donned a hijab, along with thousands of other non-Muslim women, and recited a passage from the Koran at a ceremony in Hagley Park shortly before the Muslim call to prayer was broadcast nationwide. Despite overwhelming support for the #scarvesinsolidarity campaign, Muslim and non-Muslim critics lambasted it, arguing that hijabs are used to oppress women in Muslim majority countries.
  • Muslims Are Safer In The United States Than In Muslim Countries

    03/19/2019 12:48:45 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 13 replies
    The brutal, hate-filled slaughter of 50 Muslims in mosques in New Zealand garnered worldwide news coverage for days as the outrage was real and visceral. But the reaction belies a broader issue that is generally buried for ill-fitting the narrative: Muslims are not only extraordinarily safe in the United States, they are thriving. First, it’s worth noting what some conservative sites have pointed out: While the world was rightly indignant over the New Zealand killings, the world and media seemed largely indifferent to the slaughter of three times that many Christians in one Africa country in a three-week period, or...

    A Muslim physician who said she “moves around” in the Muslim world refuted the mainstream media’s narrative on Saturday that POTUS Donald Trump’s rhetoric was somehow responsible for the terrorist attack in New Zealand. Qanta Ahmed, a doctor and an associate professor of medicine at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, appeared on CNN and was asked to respond to a video played by host Fredericka Whitfield of the president on Friday using the word “invasion” in connection with the issue of illegal immigration on the southern border. The word was also used in a manifesto written...

    Turkish Aerospace's new attack helicopter exhibits the same configuration as the company's T129 Atak, but is considerably larger and more powerful. (photo: Turkish Aerospace) Turkey’s Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSB) signed a contract with Turkish Aerospace Industries on February 22 as part of the country’s effort to indigenously develop a new 10-tonne heavy attack helicopter, which is likely to compete in the future with the Boeing AH-64 Apache. The contract for the Heavy Class Attack Helicopter project has an undisclosed value, and how much this initial contract covers in terms of program deliverables has also not been released.

    Pakistan: Muslim murders wife and daughter because they were sexually assaulted, to restore his honor It is always the woman’s fault. This is the idea behind the hijab, niqab, and other coverings: it is up to women to prevent men from being tempted. If men are tempted anyway, it is the woman’s fault, and the honor of the family must be restored by killing the women involved. Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off...

Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis. The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother. Power Line reported: A reader has written us to point out that the Somali website Somalispot posted information last week suggesting Omar’s involvement in marriage and immigration fraud. The post notes that Omar married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Hirsi is the father of Omar’s three children. Omar...

    A Deadly Embrace of the Unembraceable Fatima Perspectives #1274 Pope Francis did not invent the epochal folly of “interreligious dialogue,” which requires the Catholic “dialogue partner” to pretend — forever — that God Incarnate did not found the Church he represents and endow it with a divine mission to “teach all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded …” (Matt. 28:19-20)No, the dissolvent nonsense that is “interreligious dialogue” emerged from the Vatican II document Nostra Aetate, which declares —...

    Suddenly the truth about the whole sham is coming out. On Jan. 22, 2019, Ali Akbar Salehi, the nuclear chief of the Iranian theocracy, acknowledged that Iran had fooled the 5+1 and IAEA group of foreign ministers - these were U.S. and European foreign ministers who negotiated the Iran Deal, - into signing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA. That was the deal President Obama signed with other leaders and touted to the U.S. public. President Trump scrapped it. In an unprecedented confession, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the mullah regime's Atomic Agency, acknowledged that the mullahs...

    Mosaic Magazine ^ | Jan. 24 2019 | Steven A. Cook
    Despite Michael Doran’s efforts to argue otherwise, Turkey shares neither American values/American interests. There is a great deal to like about Michael Doran’s essay, “The Strategy Washington is Pursuing in the Middle East Is the Only Strategy Worth Pursuing.” His critique of ostensibly objective foreign-policy analysts/journalists is devastating. Much of what passes for analysis in Washington these days is merely reflexive anti-Trumpism. As Doran quite rightly indicates, many of the same people decrying the president’s decision to withdraw from Syria were similarly outraged when National Security Adviser John Bolton declared last September, “We’re not going to leave [Syria] as long...
  • Will Iran Become the Next Venezuela? Inflation rate "exponential," Economy on Verge of Collapse

    “Will Iran become the next Venezuela?” Almost every Iranian has faced this question. In truth, Iran has not only become the next Venezuela, but the acceleration of its economic collapse is much higher than that of Venezuela. The economic situations of Venezuela and Iran can be compared by examining the inflation rate and the conversion rate of USD to Bolivars (Venezuela currency) and the inflation rate and conversion rate of Iranian Rials to U.S. Dollars. Almost all of Venezuela’s income is from the oil industry. In 2015, the oil-dependent economy contracted 5.7% and the inflation rate, which was at 57%...
