They Just Assumed She Was Sleeping.... For 8 Months?!

In one of the strangest cases in Kuwait’s history, two daughters, who lived with their mother in the same flat, found her dead – eight months after her death. The daughters assumed that she was sleeping, during this eight-month period.
The mother’s body had turned into skeleton.
The daughters were reportedly out of the flat every day to look for food to sustain themselves economically and totally neglected their mother, who slept in a different room.
They told investigators that they thought their mother, who was well covered by a blanket, was in good condition and that she woke up every day after they left and slept before they came back home.
They discovered that she was dead and that her body had turned into a skeleton only after one of them lifted the blanket to see how the mother was doing, local daily Al Watan reported on Wednesday.
Shocked by the macabre discovery, they called the police, who launched an investigation.
According to the paper, the police ruled out any foul play and decided not to press charges, especially that the mother’s death was natural.
Online readers expressed deep shock over the report, blaming the daughters for their lack of sensitivity and total absence of feelings.
“When we go beyond the moral issues, you would have smelled a dead chicken easily,” one reader wrote. “How come you could smell your mother’s corpse? This is crazy.”
Salem, another reader, refused to believe the story.
“Even if we suppose the two daughters had mental issues, I am sure the poor woman had a relative, someone who knew her,” he wrote. “There is no way no one asks about her for eight months. This is too much,” he posted.
Wejan said that the two daughters knew about their mother’s death and did not wish to report it for some reason.
“I am sure there is something fishy here because it does not make sense at all,” Wejan posted. “They could not possibly live next to a corpse for eight months and not even taking a slight look at their mother for such a long period.”

Afghan Hospital Guard Kills 3 American Doctors



An Afghan security guard opened fire on a group of foreign doctors at a Kabul hospital on Thursday morning, killing three American physicians and wounding a U.S. nurse, officials said.

The shooting at Cure International Hospital in western Kabul was the latest in a string of deadly attacks on foreign civilians in the Afghan capital this year.

Two of the dead Americans were a father and son, Minister of Health Soraya Dalil said, adding that the third American was a Cure International doctor who had worked in Kabul for seven years.

Dalil said an American nurse was also wounded in the attack.

"YOU CAN'T BE DEFAMED IF YOU DO NOT EXIST" NY JUDGE THROWS OUT LIBEL SUIT FILED BY MUSLIMS ORG. AGAINST AUTHORS OF THE BOOK ON TERRORIST CAMPS IN AMERICA


A federal judge today threw out a libel suit filed by a national Muslim organization headquartered in the Southern Tier against the authors of a book that calls the group a terrorist organization.

U.S. District Judge Thomas McAvoy dismissed the lawsuit filed last year by The Muslims of America Inc. against authors Martin Mawyer and Patti Pierucci and their group, the Christian Action Network.

The lawsuit sought $3 million and to halt the continued publication of the book, "Twilight in America: the Untold Story of Islamic Training Camps in America."


McAvoy agreed with the defendants' lawyers that The Muslims of America Inc. lacked standing to bring the lawsuit. The claims were over allegations in the book, published in 2012, about a different organization, Muslims of the Americas Inc., which dissolved in March 2013, the judge ruled.

The Muslims of America Inc. was formed in January 2013 -- after the book was published.

"You can't be defamed if you do not exist," said David W.T. Carroll, an Ohio lawyer representing the authors and the Christian Action Network.

"IT'S NOT ABOUT CRIMINALIZING PEOPLE IT IS ABOUT PREVENTING TRAGEDIES"UK COUNTER TERRORISM POLICE APPEAL TO MUSLIM WOMEN TO HELP STOP MEN FROM TRAVELLING TO WAGE JIHAD IN SYRIA


British counter-terrorism police chiefs are making an unprecedented appeal to Muslim women to urge men against travelling to Syria to possibly fight.

The national campaign for women to intervene follows a string of deaths of men from the UK who were fighting against President Assad's regime.

Events in London, Birmingham and Manchester will see police reach out to women to help prevent more deaths.


Forty people have been arrested over links to Syria this year, police add.

Security chiefs think hundreds of people have gone from the UK to fight in Syria, some of whom have returned.

Reports suggest up to 20 men from Britain are thought to have died in the conflict.

On Thursday, coordinated events in London, Manchester and Birmingham will bring together counter-terrorism police, officials who work on preventing extremism and women from community groups in an effort to urge others to help stop people travelling to Syria.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Helen Ball, national coordinator for counter-terrorism at the Metropolitan Police, said she wanted to start a national conversation with women to help protect young people from going to Syria.


Ms Ball said: "We are increasingly concerned about the numbers of young people who have or are intending to travel to Syria to join the conflict.

"This is not about criminalising people it is about preventing tragedies. We want to inform those who wish to genuinely help the Syrian cause how they can do so safely and legally."

The new strategy includes leaflets to be handed out at ports which spell out the potentially fatal consequences of going to Syria.

The government has also urged Muslim communities to stop sending charity convoys to the region, asking them to work with major aid organisations with experience of war zones.


REVOKE THEIR CITIZENSHIP BECAUSE BEGGING MUSLIM TERRORISTS DOES NOT PREVENT THEM FROM WAGING JIHAD.

AUTHORITIES RAID MOSQUE ARREST TWO AND DISMISS IMAM FOR LISTENING TO "ILLEGAL RELIGIOUS" AUDIO MATERIALS,ARREST 100 MUSLIM MEN FOR HAVING A BEARDS AND WOMEN FOR WEARING NIQAB (CHINA)


Chinese authorities in the restive northwestern region of Xinjiang have dismissed the imam of a local mosque, and are investigating two Muslim Uyghurs who worked there for listening to "illegal religious" audio materials, an exile Uyghur group said on Wednesday.

The move came as police and religious affairs bureau officials raided the mosque in Toksun county near eastern Xinjiang's Turpan city last week, confiscating audio CDs banned by the ruling Chinese Communist Party.

"The authorities removed the imam of the mosque from his position because they were listening to religious audio disks, and at least two people from this mosque were detained," Dilxat Raxit, spokesman for the Munich-based World Uyghur Congress (WUC), said in an interview on Wednesday.

The crackdown then spread beyond the mosque to encompass the mostly Muslim ethnic Uyghurs living in nearby Gulboyi village, he said.
"At least 100 people were detained for a short period of time; young men for wearing beards and woman for wearing veils," he said. "They were temporarily detained and sent for "education or issued with fines."



In all, 45 Uyghur youths were punished for wearing beards, while 37 women were sanctioned for wearing veils while 57 punishments were handed to women wearing traditional Islamic clothing, he said.

Those detained had received a variety of punishments, including education under detention. Many of the men had been forcibly shaved, while some women had had their veils removed, Raxit said.

He said security had remained tight in Toksun county following the crackdown.


EXTREME MEASURES ARE THE ONLY WAY TO PREVENT SPREAD OF JIHADI IDEOLOGY.

"URGING EGYPT TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON IT'S COMMITMENT TO TRANSITION TO DEMOCRACY" U.S. RESUMES MILITARY AID TO EGYPT


The Obama administration said Tuesday it has certified that Egypt is upholding its 35-year-old peace treaty with Israel and therefore qualifies for some military and counterterrorism assistance.

"Today, Secretary Kerry spoke with Egyptian Foreign Minister (Nibil) Fahmy to inform him that he is certifying to Congress that Egypt is sustaining the strategic relationship with the United States, including by countering transnational threats such as terrorism and weapons proliferation, and that Egypt is upholding its obligations under the Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty," department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a emailed statement.

The decision clears the way for the release of Apache helicopters to Egypt, which the United States has held up since July when the Egyptian military overthrew President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood-led government.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel informed Egypt's defense minister, Col. Gen. Sedki Sobhi, of President Barack Obama's decision to deliver the Apaches in support of Egypt's counterterrorism operations in the Sinai, the Pentagon said.

"The secretary noted that we believe these new helicopters will help the Egyptian government counter extremists who threaten U.S., Egyptian and Israeli security," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said in outlining Hagel's call to his Egyptian counterpart. "This is one element of the president's broader efforts to work with partners across the region to build their capacity to counter terrorist threats, and is the United States' national security interest."


The administration's decision means aid is now flowing to the Egyptian military.

Sending a full certification to Congress for the resumption of Egypt aid would signal U.S. approval for Egypt's path toward a return to democracy.

Once Kerry issues that certification, the U.S. can resume other military and civilian assistance programs.


The notification deals specifically with Egypt's adherence to the Camp David Accords and not its progression toward democratic rule.

Psaki said Kerry "noted that he is not yet able to certify that Egypt is taking steps to support a democratic transition. He urged Egypt to follow through on its commitment to transition to democracy, including by conducting free, fair and transparent elections, and easing restrictions on freedom of expression, assembly and the media."

"PREJUDICED VIEW OF ISLAM' IMAM CALLS 9/11 MEMORIAL MUSEUM DOCUMENTARY OFFENSIVE TO MUSLIMS


Past the towering tridents that survived the World Trade Center collapse, adjacent to a gallery with photographs of the 19 hijackers, a brief film at the soon-to-open National September 11 Memorial Museum will seek to explain to visitors the historical roots of the attacks.

The film, “The Rise of Al Qaeda,” refers to the terrorists as Islamists who viewed their mission as a jihad. The NBC News anchor Brian Williams, who narrates the film, speaks over images of terrorist training camps and Qaeda attacks spanning decades. Interspersed with his voice are explanations of the ideology of the terrorists, rendered in foreign-accented English translations.

The documentary is not even seven minutes long, the exhibit just a small part of the museum. But it has suddenly become over the last few weeks a flash point in what has long been one of the most highly charged issues at the museum: how it should talk about Islam and Muslims.


With the museum opening on May 21, it has shown the film to several groups, including an interfaith advisory group of clergy members. Those on the panel overwhelmingly took strong exception to the film and requested changes. But the museum has declined. In March, the sole imam in the group resigned to make clear that he could not endorse its contents.

“The screening of this film in its present state would greatly offend our local Muslim believers as well as any foreign Muslim visitor to the museum,” Sheikh Mostafa Elazabawy, the imam of Masjid Manhattan, wrote in a letter to the museum’s director. “Unsophisticated visitors who do not understand the difference between Al Qaeda and Muslims may come away with a prejudiced view of Islam, leading to antagonism and even confrontation toward Muslim believers near the site.”

Museum officials are standing by the film, which they say they vetted past several scholars.

“From the very beginning, we had a very heavy responsibility to be true to the facts, to be objective, and in no way smear an entire religion when we are talking about a terrorist group,” said Joseph C. Daniels, president and chief executive of the nonprofit foundation that oversees the memorial and museum.


EXPOSING ISLAM'S HOLY WAR AKA JIHAD ALWAYS INSULTS MUSLIMS.

KORAN TEACHER ARRESTED FOR FORCING CHILDREN TO UNDRESS AND TAKING NUDE PHOTOS WITH HIS CELLPHONE


He allegedly made them lie on the ground, take off their trousers and underwear, and would then take pictures of their half-naked bodies with his cellphone.

On Tuesday, Evaton police confirmed they were investigating a Tanzanian who would walk his victims back home after the alleged crime.

Constable Thifhiwe Mitileni was unable to confirm how many charges of indecent assault the man was facing.


Mitileni had not been able to retrieve the docket at the satellite police station on Tuesday as the server was down.

“I wouldn’t want to give wrong information to the public,” he said.

However, The Star understands that the man appeared in the Sebokeng Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

The alleged crimes, which the parents of his victims believe had been taking place for a while, were said to have taken place inside a mosque in Evaton’s Lakeside Proper section.

The man was arrested last Wednesday after he was confronted by the parents of one of his victims.


The confrontation came shortly after a five-year-old girl told her mother that she had witnessed her twin sister’s alleged molestation.

“She said to me: ‘Mommy, at school we were taught not to allow any person to touch us uncomfortably.’ I then asked who touched her. That’s when she explained that the man had touched her sister.

“I was surprised by what she told me. She even explained that the man ordered her to leave the mosque because she knew too much when she refused to take instructions,” said the twins’ mother.

The mother, who cannot be named because her children are minors, said she was shocked that the man had saved the pictures on his cellphone.


The twins’ mother said they were approached about three years ago by one of the maulanas after the mosque was built in the area, requesting to teach their children about Islam.

“It wasn’t really a problem because it was also removing them from the streets. We knew the children were safe and fed at the mosque every afternoon,” the woman said.

She said they did not think there would be a problem with the suspect, who continued to teach the children after the initial teachers left.

TWO SAUDI WOMEN ARRESTED TRYING TO SMUGGLE SIX CHILDREN TO JOIN AL QAEDA IN YEMEN



Two Saudi women were arrested while trying to smuggle six children, including four of their own, across the southern border to join al-Qaeda in Yemen, Al Arabiya News Channel reported on Wednesday.

Two Yemeni smugglers who accompanied the women and children were also arrested, as the group attempted to cross into Yemen from Jazan, in the southwest corner of Saudi Arabia.

The two women had reportedly collected sums of money, as well as quantities of gold and silver in the central region of al-Qassim, before taking the six children.

Al-Watan newspaper, quoting sources, reported Wednesday that the six children were all related.


On Twitter, a man alleging to be the uncle of one the children, expressed shock when learning of the incident.

“I had the shock of my life when I got a phone call informing me that my nephew had been found with other children and two women as they were being smuggled out of the kingdom to join the ranks of Al Qaeda,” Abu Saleh, the uncle, said in a number of tweets Monday, under the account name @abosalah1388.

Further, Riyadh journalist Mohammad al-Zayyad told Al Arabiya Wednesday this was not the first time al-Qaeda had tried to recruit Saudi women.

“Over the last couple of years, al-Qaeda has tried to exploit women, whether in the countries that it targets, like Saudi Arabia,and take advantage of women and children, and also blackmail states in order to put pressure on them, or for money to fund the organization,” he said.

“[They might] also use the women for logistical reasons, since the countries they enter, like Yemen or Syria, where they join groups such as the Nusra Front or the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syriam,” he added.

Referring to the arrests of the two women, Al-Zayyad said the husband of one of the women was an ISIS fighter in Syria, while the husband of the other woman was in prison for terrorism-related offenses.

The women were active in supporting Al-Qaeda, as well as inciting or attempting to create sympathy with the organization,” he said.

A private plane carrying relatives of the women and the children, as well as religious scholars and human rights activists, was dispatched by the interior minister to Jazan to reason with them, according to officials.

"TO INSURE THEY ADHERE TO LOCAL CULTURAL VALUES" SAUDI ARABIA TO REGULATE LOCAL CHANNELS ON YOUTUBE

Saudi Arabia plans to regulate YouTube channels to ensure they adhere to local cultural values, according to the head of a media watchdog.

Riyadh Najm, President at the Saudi General Commission for Audiovisual Media, said the authority plans to issue guidelines for local companies that screen YouTube channels.

“The most prominent thing about these regulations is that they [will make sure that] YouTube channels are licensed in Saudi Arabia according to [acceptable] limits and morals and that all workers abide by broadcast regulations. This aims to guarantee the quality of performance,” Najm told the pan-Arab daily Asharq al-Awsat.

Najm said the authority was looking to embrace the creation of YouTube videos and “develop the technical and artistic skills” of those creating them.

Saudi Arabia has the highest per-capita consumption of YouTube videos in the world, according to Google, which owns the video-sharing site.

The move to regulate YouTube will “raise a lot of questions” over acceptable limits, and whether channels will be censored before or after broadcast, Asharq al-Awsat noted.


The authority does not currently practice prior censorship of TV channels, but demands that broadcasts match local values and traditions, the newspaper added. It has the right to shut down TV stations that violate the law, it was reported.

Google declined to comment on the matter when contacted by Al Arabiya News.

"RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE EMPLOYEE ENDS WHEN THE CONTRACT IS TERMINATED" SWEDEN REFUSES TO GIVE ASYLUM TO AFGHANS TRANSLATORS


Sweden has refused to take responsibility for the safety of Afghan interpreters who served their ISAF forces in Afghanistan.

The 30 odd translators who worked for Swedish troops serving in Afghanistan now say that they fear for their lives, as militant groups may accuse them of serving the enemy.

Sweden's Lieutenant General Goran Martensson told Sveriges Radio that responsibility for the employee ends when the contract is terminated.

Currently the Swedish army only follows up the safety of former employees for up to three months, but even that may be taken away. "This claims a lot of resources," military spokesman Par Dahlbom told the TT news agency.

Although some interpreters were given permission to stay in Sweden b the UN Refugee Quota system last year, those remaining in Afghanistan are unable to seek asylum in Sweden, as applications for asylum can only be submitted in Sweden.


WISH AMERICA WOULD DO THE SAME.

"TO PROMOTE THE MODERATE VALUES AND PRINCIPLES OF ISLAM THAT ESSENTIALLY CALL FOR TOLERANCE" FIRST ISLAMIC SCIENCES INSTITUTE OPENS IN SWITZERLAND


The Swiss Islamic Shura Council has launched the first Islamic research center in the European nation; "The Islamic Sciences Institute." Abdullah Nicholas Blancho, board member of the newly-established Islamic institute, told KUNA the establishment would offer Islamic religious studies in Deutsche, noting its significance due to lack of a sufficient number of qualified academic Islamic figures capable of lecturing about Islam, correctly, in the European country.

The institute board of trustees groups scholars from various Islamic states, tasked with preparing the curricula "on sound academic bases as adopted by accredited Islamic institutes in the Islamic nations." Muslims and non-Muslims are welcomed to be enrolled to study the Holy Book, Sunnah and Hadith at the new center.

Elaborating, Blancho pointed out the need for Swiss Muslims, well educated about their religion and doctrine, to be able to master convincing and sensible arguments, when faced with criticisms against Islam.

Failure to respond to critical arguments often gives the wrong impression that "Islam is incapable to address contemporary issues," while the issue lies in shallow knowledge by some Muslims in such situations, he explained to KUNA.

Blancho stressed the necessity to promote the moderate values and principles of Islam that essentially call for tolerance.

NEWLY ELECTED MAYOR VOWS TO BLOCK BUILDING OF AN ALREADY APPROVED MOSQUE (FRANCE)


The recently-elected far-right mayor of a Parisian suburb has not wasted any time in following through on one of his campaign promises: upend a project for a new mosque.

Mantes-la-Ville Mayor Cyril Nauth had promised to block the project, citing parking problems in the neighbourhood where the future mosque is supposed to stand, as well as potential financial liabilities for the local government.
The previous Socialist-led city council approved in October a measure to purchase a publicly-owned building and then resell the property to the local Muslim organisation, who would be in charge of transforming it into a place of worship.
Nauth, a member of the far-right National Front (FN) party, expressed concern that the religious group might fail to disburse city hall the 650,000 euros needed for the purchase of the property.
He told French daily Le Monde this week that he was willing to pay legal damages to the Muslim organisation, one of the potential consequences for unilaterally suspending the venture.

FRANCE INTRODUCES NEW "TOUGH LOVE" MEASURES, CREATING AN ALERT SYSTEM FOR MUSLIM PARENTS TO COMBAT GROWING NUMBER OF YOUNG MUSLIMS TRAVELLING TO WAGE JIHAD IN SYRIA


France wants to deter youths from fighting with Islamist militants in Syria's civil war, and is planning a series of tough-love measures that answer the pleas of parents and seek to protect the nation from battle-hardened returnees.

The measures announced Wednesday include a system for allowing suspicious parents, and perhaps teachers, to tip off authorities. Those suspected of wanting to become a foreign fighter can have their passport withdrawn and their name put in a European security data base.


France believes it has more of its young people joining the Syria fighting than any other European nation. But the problem — and the potential risk that those returning home could import terrorist skills with them — is continental in scope.

The government said Wednesday that nearly 300 French people are currently in Syria, 130 are in transit and 130 others have returned home after one or more tours in Syria, where a 3-year-old civil war has left 150,000 dead and forced millions to flee their homes.

Another 25 French citizens or residents have died on the battlefield. In total, 740 people have been identified as belonging to Syrian networks.

Youths as young as 15, including girls, have left home to fight. Some have been retrieved by their parents and brought home to be criminally charged and jailed.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the plans include preventive measures and "repressive elements aimed at dismantling networks that expose our country to risks."

Speaking after a Cabinet meeting that approved the plans, Cazeneuve said France had "the will to use all means to identify recruiters and suppliers of hatred on the Internet, and dismantle the networks."

France plans to create an alert system for parents who fear that their children are at risk of taking up jihad. Parents would contact the Interior Ministry, which would mobilize social services and the educational system.

Cazeneuve did not elaborate. It wasn't clear whether teachers and parents would, ultimately, be spying on their students and children.


Parents have been pleading with the government to take action to keep their children from becoming terrorists. Some have asked the government to offer clemency to teenagers lured to Syria by Internet propaganda. However, Cazeneuve said those caught on their return must face the courts.

A criminologist, Alain Bauer, scoffed at the notion that France's 5 million Muslims — the largest Muslim population in Western Europe — might feel stigmatized by the measures, as they did when France passed laws banning head scarves in schools and face-covering veils in public places.

"When you are protecting a country, you take care of reality," Bauer told The Associated Press.

Bauer compared the new proposals to providing medical care for a drug-addicted child. "Prevention is like a medical act. ... It's taking care of someone who's in trouble," he said.

While Bauer praised the prevention elements of the plan, he expressed reservations about the rest, particularly the belief that returning fighters could pose a terror threat on French soil.

Cazeneuve said France would pass a law permitting the confiscation of passports to stop people suspected of wanting to travel to Syria. He said another proposed law would permit foreign residents to be immediately deported if they are linked by police to terrorism overseas.

"I’m here for being a pig, I know because I asked Allah last week, and saw a vision of a pig" Wrote Pious Muslimah/Murder Suspect In One Of The Letters She Sent To 2 Georgia Judges


The woman accused of killing Jerry Wheeler last June 18 is still at a state mental health facility in Milledgeville being evaluated and will not have a competency hearing that had been set for Monday in Douglas County Superior Court.

But judging from comments made in two letters written by 33-year-old Sahara Fakhir to area judges, the professionals who will issue a report on her competency have their hands full.

The Sentinel has obtained the hand-written letters, one dated Aug. 5, 2013, to Judge David Emerson and another to Judge William “Beau” McClain dated March 11, 2014, in which Fakhir does everything from apologize, make wild claims and calls judges every name in the book.

Fakhir was arrested and charged with the murder of Wheeler, a 66-year-old local businessman, inside his home on June 18. In preliminary hearings, testimony indicated that Fakhir was seen walking away from the victim’s home on the night of his attack, left her bloody footprints inside the home and had a knife stashed under her mattress that had the victim’s blood inside the handle.

But in her letters, Fakhir denied killing anyone and even blamed her arrest on binge eating of candy, after she said she promised Allah that she would diet and lose weight.

“I’m not here for the murder of Jerry Wheeler (May Allah rest his soul). I’m here for being a pig,” Fakhir wrote to Judge Emerson last year. “I know because I asked Allah last week, and saw a vision of a pig. Just the night before the police came to my home, I went out and purchased a box of Dots (Cherry Candy) 2 packs of funsize Milky Way, 1 pack of funsize Snickers, 1 pack of funsize Almond Joy and a pack of six Reese cups from Family Dollar. I ate it all in one night except the Dots. Well... the next day the police came which was a confirmation from the vision I had about the police car if I continued to eat candy instead of taking my supplements and working out to acquire better health. It’s something how karma can come to get us...”

Fakhir threatened to bring destruction to the courthouse and to Douglas County when she made her initial court appearance. in her letters, she said that some of her claims are coming to pass. She even took credit for District Attorney David McDade’s health problems.


McDade endured five surgical procedures and more than a month of intensive care after circulation issues were found on Dec. 5 when he was seeking to get clearance for back surgery. An ultrasound found almost total blockage. Doctors thought for a time that they would have to amputate his lower right leg and possibly the same on his left. He said it was those health issues that led him to the decision to retire at the end of April.

Fakhir wrote: “You think David McDade’s sickness is a coincidence? Did I not tell you that Allah said for me to tell you that he was ‘fed up with the Douglas County GA Judicial system and that he will again visit Douglasville with another unrelenting chastisement.’”

Fakhir calls McClain a “filthy, nasty, low-down, law-breaking pathetic, scum dog rat,” a “snake,” “you criminal in a black cape,” and threatens a type of holy war. She tells McClain that she will not work with her court-appointed attorneys Wesley Wolverton and Jim Kiger because they are “atheists.”

Fakhir in a court appearance claimed that Allah would serve as her attorney. In letters, she said Allah would provide “destruction of a courthouse by the power of a violent, turbulent windstorm,” and she threatened a judge’s freedom and his life at Allah’s hands.

“Allah is planning on killing you with his own hands – his own unique, unconquerable strength and yet you dare challenge his authority by oppressing me in violation of my religion and the Miranda Rights law, and in addition to that, you are planning to take my life?” Fakhir wrote in a letter to Judge McClain. “Allah will end up destroying you before you can do it.”

LGBT COMMUNITY AND FASHION INDUSTRY CALL FOR BOYCOTT OF SHARIA LOVING SULTAN OF BRUNEI OWNED BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL


According to The Washington Blade, The OutGiving Conference, an event for wealthy LGBT donors hosted by the Gill Action Fund, announced last week that it would be canceling the conference at The Beverly Hills Hotel. The cancellation reportedly came after organizers realized the hotel was owned by the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, who is the leader of the country that recently passed harsh penalties for same-sex acts.
As reported by The Huffington Post last week, Brunei is slated to allow death by stoning as punishment for gay sex. Other offenses referenced in the revision of capital punishment regulations reportedly include "rape, adultery, sodomy, extramarital sexual relations for Muslims, insulting any verses of the Quran and Hadith, blasphemy, declaring oneself a prophet or non-Muslim, and murder."
Executive Director of Gill Action Kirk Fordham reportedly stated that a new venue would be chosen following the event's cancellation. “In light of the horrific anti-gay policy approved by the government of Brunei, Gill Action made the decision earlier today to relocate its conference from the Beverly Hills Hotel to another property,”Fordham said in a statement. “We are seeking a return of all deposits."
In response to the boycott, The Beverly Hills Hotel sent a statement to The Hollywood Reporter that reads, in part, "[W]e do not tolerate any form of discrimination of any kind. We are also against any law in any other country around the world that punishes people for their religious beliefs, ethnicity, race or sexual orientation. The laws and policies that govern how we run our hotel have nothing to do with the laws that exist in any other country outside of the United States."
This isn't the first time that the Beverly Hills Hotel's ties to anti-gay Brunei resulted in a boycott from LGBT groups. In February 2013, a group called "Dump The Beverly Hills Hotel" began publicly encouraging individuals to no longer patronize the business due to its ties to "state-sponsored homophobia."
WILL THE HOLLYWOOD LIBERALS HAVE THE GUTS TO SPEAK OUT AND TAKE A STAND OR JUST CONTINUE THEIR MINDLESS,INDULGENT EXISTENCE?

FOUR MUSLIMS FILE LAWSUIT AGAINST FBI CLAIMING THEIR NAMES WERE PUT ON NO FLY LIST AS A RETALIATION FOR THEIR REFUSAL TO BECOME FBI INFORMANTS


Naveed Shinwari hasn’t seen his wife in 26 months. He suspects it’s because he refused to become an informant for the FBI.

In February 2012 Shinwari, who has lived in the US since he was 14, flew to Afghanistan to get married. He says that before he could get home to Omaha, Nebraska, he was twice detained and questioned by FBI agents who wanted to know if he knew anything about national security threats. A third FBI visit followed when he got home.

The following month, after Shinwari bought another plane ticket for a temporary job in Connecticut, he couldn’t get a boarding pass. Police told him he had been placed on the US no-fly list, although he had never in his life been accused of breaking any law. Another FBI visit soon followed, with agents wanting to know about the “local Omaha community, did I know anyone who’s a threat”, he says.

“I’m just very frustrated, [and I said] what can I do to clear my name?” recalls Shinwari, 30. “And that’s where it was mentioned to me: you help us, we help you. We know you don’t have a job; we’ll give you money.”


Shinwari is one of four American Muslims in a new lawsuit who accuse the FBI of placing them on the no-fly list, either to intimidate them into becoming informants or to retaliate against them for declining.

Filed on Tuesday night in the US district court for the southern district of New York, the case accuses the US attorney general, Eric Holder, the FBI director, James Comey, the homeland security secretary, Jeh Johnson, and two dozen FBI agents of creating an atmosphere in which Muslims who are not accused of wrongdoing are forbidden from flying, apparently as leverage to get them snitching on their communities.

Their lawsuit seeks not only the plaintiffs’ removal from the no-fly list but also the establishment of a more robust legal mechanism to contest placement upon it.

"THE CLERIC OF THE MOSQUE ORDERED THE PEOPLE TO STONE THE CHILD TO DEATH" MUSLIMS ERASE EVIDENCE OF IMMORALITY AND BREAKING SHARIA LAW BY KILLING NEWBORN BABIES (PAKISTAN)




A child has just been born and nobody looks happy - not even his parents. His tiny body is still smeared in blood. The newborn cries incessantly, and so does the teenage mother. The baby weighs only 350 grams and is around the size of the palm of a large hand. And that's when the mother's trembling hands reach the child's frail neck. She closes her eyes and presses her thumb against the child's throat. She strangles him. A child who arrived in the "civilized world" some 45 minutes ago, must now leave it. The nurse puts the child's corpse in a plastic bag and takes it out of the clinic.

Razia Zulfikar, a nurse working at a maternity home in the central Pakistani city of Gujranwala, says hundreds of illegitimate newborn babies are killed in the Islamic republic every day.

"An eight-month pregnant girl came to us just a few days ago. We didn't want to admit her to our hospital. After repeated requests from her family, we finally agreed to treat her. But we told the family explicitly that we would not kill the child," Zulfikar told DW. "We gave the baby to the girl's family. Only she and her family know what they did to the newborn, and how they killed him," she added.

Pakistan is a majority-Muslim nation with a population of over 180 million people. Pre-marital relations are strictly prohibited in the conservative country and are also frowned upon by society. There is probably no bigger taboo than having a child out of wedlock. According to Islamic laws, it is a punishable crime and the people committing fornication could be sentenced to death. At times, the relatives of the couple take the law in their hands and kill the adulterers. Most of the times, only the mother and the child are murdered.
However, despite social taboos and harsh laws, many Pakistani men and women continue to engage in extramarital relationships and have sex before marriage.

"We live in a modern world. Our girls and boys keep cellular phones and watch Western movies. They are rebellious and do whatever they like. The family only gets to know about an affair when the girl gets pregnant," Zulfikar said.

According to the Edhi Foundation, a Pakistani welfare organization, more than 1,100 newborns were murdered and dumped in garbage bins last year. The organization says it collected the figures only from the country's big cities, and the number could be much higher nationwide.

"A six-day-old child was burnt to death. We also found the corpses of babies who had been hanged, or who had been partly eaten by animals," Anwar Kazmi, a manager at the Edhi Foundation, told DW.

"I can never forget one incident. A woman left a child in front of a mosque hoping that somebody would adopt him. But the cleric of the mosque ordered the people to stone the child to death. I saw the mutilated and torn body of the child myself," he recalled


HORRORS THAT EXIST ONLY IN ISLAMIC SOCIETIES.

MUSLIM ACCUSE AUTHORITIES OF BECOMING TOO "RELAXED" & "NOT CARING ABOUT THE DECLINE IN HIGH MORALITY IN SOCIETY" AFTER WOMAN WEARING ONLY UNDERWEAR WALKS THE STREETS OF TEHRAN FOR THREE HOURS,BEFORE SHE WAS ARRESTED


Seeing some skin in Iran's streets may be a rarity, but an entire woman naked strutting up and down the avenues of the metropolis?

According to Al Bawaba Arabic, Kamal Maher news posted a picture of an Iranian woman wearing nothing but red underwear in the streets of Karaj, a city north of Tehran.

The woman, who has not yet been identified, has allegedly "infuriated" the two million citizens of quite-conservative Karaj after the picture went viral on the Internet, leading to growing criticism about authorities becoming "too relaxed" and "not caring about the decline in high morality in society."

And to top(less) it off, the woman allegedly walked around in such "apparel" for 3 hours before she was arrested by Iran's religious police.


Iran is known to impose strict Islamic rule throughout the country, including requirements for women to wear full abayas in public at all times.

"HER CHILDREN ARE ASKING WHERE THEIR OLD MUM HAS GONE AND SAYING THEY WANT HER BACK" MUSLIM ASYLUM SEEKER SENTENCED TO 6 YEARS FOR RAPING 39 YEAR OLD WOMAN (UK)


An asylum seeker who dragged a mum into a South Yorkshire car park and raped her after a night out has been jailed.

Alan Ahmed, aged 39, attacked his victim after she got separated from friends when she went to buy food.

Ahmed pulled the 31-year-old mother down a street and tried to have sex with her, before forcing her into a car park and raping her.

The court heard the woman has twice tried to take her own life since the attack in the early hours of August 10, 2013.

She said she struggled to sleep and has not socialised since the attack.

Nicola Quinney, prosecuting, said: “The victim said she is a shadow of her former self and her children have commented on that.

“They are asking where their old mum has gone and saying they want her back.”


Miss Quinney said the woman was out with friends on Broad Street, Rotherham, when she went outside for a cigarette and then to buy some food.

She was sitting on the floor because her leg was hurting when Ahmed approached her.

He pulled her to her feet, grabbed her wrist and dragged her down the street.

There he sexually assaulted her and pulled down her trousers before attempting to rape her.

The he pulled her into a car park on Greasborough Road and raped her.

After the attack, the woman flagged down a nearby jogger and Ahmed, from Kurdistan, fled the scene.

Police carried out extensive enquiries and CCTV images of the suspect were released.

Ahmed, of Spalton Road, Parkgate, Rotherham, was arrested after a member of the public reported that a man wearing the same hooded top as shown in the images walked down Broad Street every day.

He denied the offence, but, after being shown DNA evidence, told police his victim had initiated sex.

Ahmed, who has no previous convictions and has lived in England for seven years as an asylum seeker, admitted rape.

Jailing him for six years, Judge Sarah Wright said: “These offences involved abduction and detention and it was a sustained incident.

“Your actions had a profound effect on her and what you did will live with her for the rest of her life.”

NUMBER OF ASYLUM SEEKERS CHARGED WITH CRIMES RISING IN DENMARK



Last year, 1,800 people seeking asylum in Denmark were charged with a crime. That number is equal to 25 percent of the total number of asylum seekers and has more than doubled since 2007. The number seeking asylum has also increased, and at a faster rate than those that are getting in trouble with the law.
The national police department, Rigspolitiet, said that the numbers were not disproportionate.
“Developments in the amount of crime committed by asylum seekers corresponds to the total number of asylum seekers,” said the police in an email statement to Berlingske newspaper.
A spokesperson for opposition party Dansk Folkeparti (DF) said that the rise in crime reveals that some asylum seekers come here specifically to exploit the system.
“It confirms what we already assumed,” DF spokesperson Martin Henriksen told Berlingske. “The problem of criminals seeking asylum is growing.”
Konservative spokesperson Tom Behnke said that police need to clamp down on the criminals.
"The laws must be straightforward and consistent and make sure that criminals are thrown out of the country as soon as possible," Behnke told Berlingske.

"THIS EXPENSIVE AND MANIACAL OPERATION MUST BE IMMEDIATELY STOPPED" EX MINISTER SAYS ITALIAN NAVY MUST STOP SAVING MUSLIM OPPORTUNISTS AKA ASYLUM SEEKERS


Italy has rescued over 1,000 migrants over the past 48 hours, the navy said on Tuesday, amid rising criticism from the political right over the high cost of the operation.

The "Mare Nostrum" (Our Sea) operation, launched last October, plucks people from floundering vessels in the Mediterranean almost daily, at a cost of €9 million a month according to Italian media reports.

"This expensive and maniacal operation must be immediately stopped," said Maurizio Gasparri, a former minister from the centre-right Forza Italia party, describing Mare Nostrum as "a taxi...with people smugglers alerting the Italian navy, which then brings in endless numbers of illegal immigrants."

The government has warned that the landings are set to increase, estimating this month that up to 600,000 migrants from Africa and the Middle East are ready to set off from Libyan shores.

Matteo Salvini, head of the anti-immigration Northern League party, has also called for the operation to be scrapped, saying "Italian citizens end up financing the people smugglers and an invasion of our coasts."


The arrival in Sicily on Tuesday of 321 migrants, including 62 women and five children, brought the number of people saved over the past 48 hours to 1,149 according to the navy, which did not specify their nationalities.

Close to 22,000 migrants and asylum seekers have arrived on Italy since the start of the year, 10 times the number in the same period in 2013.

On average, five military ships and 900 sailors take part weekly in the rescue operation.


FYI MAJORITY OF THESE SO CALLED ASYLUM SEEKERS ARE MEN.

BIRMINGHAM SCHOOL AT THE CENTER OF MUSLIM "TROJAN HORSE" PLOT CLAIMS TO HAVE RECEIVED "HATE MAIL"


The trust that runs schools at the center of claims of a Islamist "plot" in Birmingham says it has received hate mail after a series of leaks purporting to come from Department for Education and Ofsted investigations were published in the media.

Park View education trust, the governing body of the Park View, Nansen and Golden Hillock schools in Birmingham, said that the leaks and disclosures were "causing unwarranted and unnecessary alarm amongst families who are seeing reports of their schools 'closing' and teachers being 'removed' alongside any number of other sensational allegations.

"And just this morning one of our schools received hate mail, which we can only conclude is a direct consequence of media reporting," it said.

An example of abuse sent to one of the schools read: "WE ARE ENGLAND! If people want to go to a school run by Muslims perhaps they should move to a muslim country! Oh my god close this school and deport you all!!"


VOICING AN OPINION IS NOT ABUSE OR HATE SPEECH.

"WHY SHOULD YOU PAY THE LEGAL BILL OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN TO BRITAIN?" LEGAL AID FOR FOREIGNERS MUST BE BANNED SAYS UK'S JUSTICE SECRETARY


Foreigners must be banned from fighting British court cases using legal aid to stop the justice system being brought into disrepute, the Justice Secretary has said. Chris Grayling warns that court cases brought by foreign citizens using British taxpayers’ money risk undermining faith in the justice system.

He said a small group law of firms and pressure groups now “make a healthy living by finding more and more varied ways to challenge government in court – and getting you to pay the bill.”

As an example, he cited Public Interest Lawyers, who acted for Iraqis claiming that British troops in Iraq had unlawfully killed up to 20 civilians.

After a year-long public inquiry costing the taxpayer more than £20 million, the firm last month accepted that there was no evidence to substantiate the claims.

Such cases now jeopardise public faith in the system, Mr Grayling suggests.

Public Interest Lawyers is headed by Phil Shiner, a persistent critic of Coalition policies. The firm has actively sought cases to bring against the Government over the conduct of the Armed Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and has also acted for benefits claimants challenging welfare reforms.

Ministers also want to restrict legal aid to people who have been resident in the UK for at least a year, with Mr Grayling arguing: “Why should you pay the legal bill of people who have never even been to Britain?”

The minister also defends plans to make it harder to seek judicial reviews of public bodies’ decisions. The Criminal Justice and Courts Bill, now before Parliament, aims to curb public funding for judicial reviews, requiring judges to reject cases that appear unlikely to succeed.


That change has been criticised as impractical by legal experts, but Mr Grayling says the move is necessary to save money and prevent pressure groups, lobbyists and businesses using the system inappropriately.

THREE MUSLIM CLERICS UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR PREACHING JIHAD AND RADICALIZING MUSLIMS IN KENYA


Kenyan police on Monday (April 21st) identified Muslim cleric Sheikh Iman Ali as one of three religious leaders responsible for radicalising youths in Mombasa's Majengo area, Kenya's The Star reported.

Ali has formerly led prayers at the Masjid Shuhada (formerly Masjid Mussa) and Masjid Mujahideen (formerly Majid Sakina), two mosques allegedly used by radicals to indoctrinate youth, according to Mombasa County police commander Robert Kitur.
The police have obtained copies of Ali's sermons preaching violence, including threatening to avenge the killers of Abubakar Shariff Ahmed, known as Makaburi, assassinated in Mombasa on April 1st.

Ali, a madrasa teacher, is rumoured to be Makaburi's successor.

"Our officers have finished profiling him and are awaiting more witnesses to build their case before he is apprehended and charged in court of law," Kitur said.

He said undercover police officers and moderate Muslim clerics have already agreed to testify against Ali in court.

Police are also investigating a Swahili-language internet video that attempts to persuade Kenyan Muslims to wage jihad in Somalia and Kenya. Senior officials believe that most of the masked men that appear in the video are from Mombasa's Majengo area.

FORMER RAPPER FROM GERMANY KILLED WAGING JIHAD IN SYRIA


A German former rapper who joined jihadists fighting in Syria has been killed in a suicide bombing carried out by rival fighters, jihadist sources and a monitor said Tuesday.

Denis Mamadou Cuspert, who rapped under the name Deso Dogg but took on the name Abu Talha al-Almani in Syria, was reported to have been killed in a suicide attack Sunday in an eastern province.

He was a member of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and was reportedly killed in a double suicide bombing carried out by Al-Nusra Front, a rival jihadist group that is Al-Qaeda's Syria affiliate.

Messages posted on jihadist Internet forums announced his death.

"The Islamic nation is bleeding with the news of the martyrdom of the jihadist fighter, brother Abu Talha al-Almani. May he be accepted by God," one message read.

"His death is the result of a suicide bombing carried out by the traitorous soldiers of (Nusra chief Abu Mohammed al-) Jolani against a house in which a number of ISIL brothers were staying," it added.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitoring group, also reported the suicide attack carried out on Sunday.

"Two members of Al-Nusra Front blew themselves up the day before yesterday, killing 16 ISIL fighters," Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

Abdel Rahman said a fighter known as Abu Talha was among those killed in the attack in Deir Ezzor province near the boundary with Hasakeh province.

Since early January, ISIL has been in open combat with Al-Nusra and other Islamist and moderate rebel groups, who accuse it of abuses against rival opposition fighters as well as civilians.

Both ISIL and Al-Nusra have reportedly targeted each other with suicide attacks.

The role of Al-Almani -- Arabic for "The German" -- in Syria attracted widespread attention and he appeared in multiple videos and photos promoting the jihadist fight in Syria.

"GIVE UP YOUR HOPE OF TAKSIM" SULTAN ERDOGAN WARNS UNIONS NOT TO STAGE MAY DAY RALLIES IN TAKSIM SQUARE


Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday he would not let unions stage a May Day rally in Istanbul's Taksim Square, where huge protests took place last year, in an announcement that may set the scene for fresh clashes there.
The government has suggested next week's traditional gathering should take place at a special venue on the outskirts of Istanbul, rather than in the city center, but unions have rejected that idea.
The authorities issued a similar ban last year, leading to thousands of anti-government protesters fighting with police as they tried to breach barricades around the huge square, which in previous years was a focal point for labor demonstrations.
That violence was followed by mass protests that spread across Turkey late last May, in one of the biggest challenges to Erdogan's rule since his AK Party came to power in 2002.
"Give up your hope of Taksim," Erdogan said at a meeting of AK lawmakers in parliament.
"The people do not want to see protesters clashing with police in the street. The people don't want streets scenes dominated by stones, sticks and Molotov cocktails."
A small group of union members scuffled with police on Monday in Taksim Square, which is surrounded by hotelsrestaurants and shops, after they tried to announce their intention to stage a May Day rally there regardless of the ban.
One union confederation, DISK, argued that a 2012 ruling by the European Court of Human Rights, which said the Turkish government had violated the principle of freedom of assembly by intervening in earlier Taksim May Day celebrations, gave them the right to rally at the square.
"Disregarding this decision is to ignore the law. We declare once again: On May 1, we will be in Taksim," DISK said in Monday's statement.
Thousands of police are likely to be on duty in central Istanbul to prevent that happening.
AND HE WANTS TURKEY TO JOIN EU.
