Pakistan: 9-year-old rape victim sentenced to death for being raped

(Multan) On Friday night, 9-year-old Shumaila’s was sleeping in her room at her parents' home when Khaleel Ahmad entered her house and raped her forcibly at gunpoint.
“He was armed and I could not raise my voice.”
The next day, when the whole family came to know about the incident, they decided to approach the local panchayat (village court). There, four people, including Muhammad Shafee, father of Khaleel Ahmad (the rapist), forced the panchayat to declare the girl as karo-kari (blackened woman, the term means she has blackened herself by committing this sin, dishonouring the family) and has been sentenced either to be killed or to be sold on the charges of adultery.


Shumaila, naturally not impressed with the verdict, escaped the house after hearing the sentence given by the panchayat and took refuge at her uncle’s place.

Ramadan Death Count: Somalia 28/11/17: Man stoned to death

(Mogadishu) Somali Islamist terrorist group Al Shabab stoned a man to death on Sunday as punishment for alleged adultery. Hundreds of witnesses watched the Murder of 44-year-old Dayow Mohamed Hassan in Ramo Adey.

It appears that Hassan already had 2 wives, but his third one wasn’t married to him via Sharia law and when she became pregnant she went to the local village leader. The two families debated her case and as there was no trace of a Sharia marriage. The village court ruled he did not marry her legally and he was stoned to death." Which is how Hassan was buried neck-deep in a hole then pelted with stones until he was dead.

I thought that nobody could be killed during Ramadan?

Ramadan death toll now stands at 296.

Norway Pulls Funding to Palestinians Over Glorification of Terror

A flying pig moment.
(WJD) In a stunning move, usually anti-Israel Norway has pulled funding to the Palestinians over their glorification of terrorism, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The issue came to a head due to the Palestinians' naming of a women's center after mass murdering terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who participated in the 1978 Coastal Road massacre that killed 37 Israelis, including over a dozen children.

Borge Brende, Norway's foreign minister, said,
The glorification of terrorist attacks is completely unacceptable, and I deplore this decision in the strongest possible terms. Norway will not allow itself to be associated with institutions that take the names of terrorists in this way. We will not accept the use of Norwegian aid funding for such purposes.
The Norwegian government demanded that the funds given to the Palestinians be immediately refunded.

Emmanuel Nahshon, an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman, said of the move,
A strong position against the glorification of terrorists is an integral part of international efforts to stamp out terrorism. We recommend that the international community investigate very well where the money it invests in the Palestinian Authority is going, and expect that all the partners in this project act as Norway did.
In recent months, Israel has stepped up its criticism of the Palestinian Authority for its glorification of terrorism and demanded action from the international community on the issue.

Ramadan Death Count: Pakistan 28/11/17: Mudassir kills his sister because he was denied the chance to marry a 10-year-old

(Multan) A man was arrested on Saturday for killing his 18-year-old sister in the name of ‘honour’. It appears that Amna eloped with Muhammad Yasin and got married around two months ago. Mudassir, Amna’s brother, was infuriated when he found out about the marriage. So he complained and a panchayat (village council) was held in which to allow him to regain his honour. They decreed that the 10-year-old sister of Muhammad Yasin be married off to Mudassir. They also ordered that Amna would reside at her parent’s home till the marriage of Mudassir with Yasin’s sister takes place.


Well, Muhammad Naik, father of the 10-year-old girl and of Muhammad Yasin, declined to obey the village council's decision and announced that he would not marry off his 10-year-old daughter to Mudassir.

Mudassir wasn't impressed about how the father of a 10-year-old child wouldn't allow him to marry her in which to allow him to get his rocks off, so in a fit of Islamic anger (where the angry twat can only be the victim) he took out his rage on his 18-year-old sister Amna (who had married for love and not paedophilia)  by killing her with an axe.

And there was I thinking that Ramadan was a time for peaceful reflection.

Turkish NBA star tweets 'you can't catch me' at arrest warrant report

(Reuters) Enes Kanter, the Turkish NBA star whose home country has revoked his passport, on Friday expressed disdain on social media at reports that Turkey's government had issued a warrant for his arrest.

"You can’t catch me. Don’t waste your breath. I will come on my own will anyway, to spit on your ugly, hateful faces," Kanter said in a Twitter post accompanied by a photo of a story by Turkish newspaper Sabah about the arrest warrant.

Kanter's agent, the National Basketball Association player's union and representatives for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kanter's team, did not respond to requests for comment.

Kanter, a vocal critic of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, was detained in Romania on May 20 when authorities learned his Turkish passport had been revoked. He returned to the United States on Sunday.

On Monday in New York, Kanter lashed out at Erdogan at a news conference, calling him the "Hitler of our century."

The 6-foot-11-inch center was traveling on a charity and promotional tour. He holds a U.S. green card that allows him to live and work in the country on a permanent basis.

Palestinians ban divorces during Ramadan

(Ramallah) The head of Palestinian Islamic courts on Sunday told judges not to grant divorces over Ramadan, fearing the month-long fast could spark rash words that would be regretted later. Judge Mahmud Habash said he based his ruling on:
"The experience of previous years" when he found that the dawn-to-dusk fast and ban on cigarettes, which began on Saturday, tended to lead to frayed tempers and sharp tongues. Some, because they have not eaten and not smoked, create problems" in their marriages, he said in a statement, and they can make "quick and ill-considered decisions".

US: Students demand College sacks Professor for refusing to leave because he is White

(Olympia) Evergreen State College in Washington state is a small liberal arts college and currently it is hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons. It seems that once a year they host a “Day of Absence” where students and faculty members of colour meet off campus to hold solidarity-building activities.


But this year this all changed. On the April 12 Day of Absence, minority students and faculty remained on campus, while whites were asked to leave. Liberal biology professor Bret Weinstein took issue with this change and wrote a letter to his fellow staff members in which to express his displeasure with this new diktat:
There is a huge difference between a group or coalition deciding to voluntarily absent themselves from a shared space in order to highlight their vital and underappreciated roles . . . and a group or coalition encouraging another group to go away. The first is a forceful call to consciousness which is, of course, crippling to the logic of oppression. The second is a show of force, and an act of oppression in and of itself. You may take this letter as a formal protest of this year’s structure, and you may assume I will be on campus on the Day of Absence.
For his refusal to bow down to acute racism, professor Weinstein has earned the wrath of the college student body demanding he resign for being a… racist. After he tried to explain himself, the cry-baby students accosted Weinstein outside his classroom and then, when the college police were called, 200 students occupied and barricaded the campus library, explaining their actions with this press release:
“The students, fearful for their lives, began retreating towards the library and ultimately ended up in the Trans & Queer Center/Unity Lounge, trying to stay safe,” Mr. Vincent said in a Facebook post Tuesday. “The white students were then delegated to spread out throughout the library floor and watch for police potentially surrounding the building.”
Later that day students escorted college administrators (anybody know what the black guy at the end of the video on the last link is wearing on his head?) into President George Bridges' office where they were kept until they heard the group’s demands:
  • Changes to the student conduct code must have democratic student consent
  • Students AR and Lawrence, who are facing disciplinary measures from other protests, have all charges against them dropped
  • Evergreen Police Officer Tim O’Dell be suspended for his behaviour toward protesters earlier this week
  • The immediate Firing of Andrea Seabert Olsen, the Assistant to the VP of Student Conduct
  • Disarming Evergreen Police, with no expansions of police facilities or powers on campus
  • Sensitivity and cultural competency training for all faculty and staff
  • The creation of an Equity Center
  • The coordinator of Trans & Queer Center be hired in a permanent full time position
  • The creation of a permanent position dedicated to supporting undocumented students
  • And Bret Weinstein be suspended without pay
Immediately following the Wednesday occupation, President Bridges sent the student body an email stating that Evergreen would revise the Student Conduct Code in which to “serve students better” and implement annual anti-bias training for all faculty and staff. He has stood the campus Police down and he finished off by saying no students would be punished for their involvement in the demonstrations, even before an investigation into the matter.

Well, Weinstein has now been told by the Chief of Police it’s not safe for him to be on campus. The College has confirmed the police department advised Weinstein it “might be best to stay off campus for a day or so.”

Judea and Samaria: Arabs attempt large-scale livestock theft from Jews in Binyamin


They must have been looking for new friends with benefits.
(INN) Last night, a family that owns a flock of sheep in the Maale Shlomo neighborhood of Kochav Hashachar in the Binyamin region was surprised to discover that Arabs had broken into the family's property and stolen at least 150 sheep.

Members of “Hashomer Yosh” ("Guardians of Judea and Samaria"' Yosh is an acronym for Judea and Samaria, ed.) acted quickly at the scene, notified security personnel and working together, they located the stolen flock after about 35 minutes.

The group told Arutz Sheva that the chase began immediately after the 3 men who had stolen the sheep were identified by cameras. During the pursuit, the thieves realized that the organization’s volunteers and security forces were after them, and abandoned the sheep, fleeing the area.

Hashomer Yosh for the prevention of thefts was established to help the ranchers and farmers of Judea and Samaria, who suffer frequently from livestock theft and the destruction of expensive agricultural equipment. Hashomer organizations have been established in the Galilee and Negve due to the same problems.

Today, the organization numbers some 150 volunteers who help guard flocks and agricultural plots.

India: Terrorists get into a gunfight with Army, lose 8-0

(Spinagar) A gunfight broke out in Uri, about 103 km northwest of Srinagar city, this morning when Pakistani funded terrorists tried to infiltrate into India from Pakistan. Unfortunately for these so called holy warriors who really should have remained at home and observed the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, the Indian army happened to catch them doing so, a gun battle ensued and 6 terrorists died without breaking the first fast of the year.


In the Tral area of Kashmir, some 40 kilometres (25 miles) south of Srinagar, Shabza Bhat, head of the Hizbul Mujahideen militant group, was killed in a gunfight with government forces, two of Bhat's fighters were also killed in the gun battle.

As is the way of the Muslim, the local Islamic population took to the streets in which to protest the killing of an armed terrorist in a gun battle, resulting in a peaceful follower of Islam meeting his maker.

US: Muslim Students Complain Prom Night Will Conflict With Ramadan

(Brooklyn) Muslim students weren't happy with how the school's prom night fell within the period of Ramadan. You know, that period where Muslims are told to refrain from all worldly pleasures for a whole lunar month. So they tried to bully their way in which to get Brooklyn Tech to move their prom night to one which suits their religious leaning.


Unfortunately for the followers of the peaceful faith™, the school was having none of this and rejected their demand to reschedule the prom night. A Department of Education spokesperson stated:
“The dance was planned months in advance and officials will not be rescheduling. Dinner will be served at 9 p.m. — well after sunset — so all students can eat.”
Naturally, as this can only be about Muslims when they play the victim card, they aren’t happy.

Student Pikeeza Shabbir opined to the media:
“I think it’s kind of unfair because there’s a major population of Muslims at Brooklyn Tech,.. because it’s Ramadan, and it’s a tradition in my family, I don’t want to miss out.”
What I can’t understand is how she closed off with this salient snippet:
“You’re not supposed to listen to music during Ramadan, so it’s not really allowed.”
Only during Ramadan? I'm pretty sure these countries have seen music bans. For the life in me, I can't seem to be able to find out what links them all:
Why, Muslims in the UK have objected to their children being taught music.

Yup, the followers of the religion who don’t believe in music, scantily dressed women or even the mixing of the genders, which they tell me is an edict from God, are now complaining because they can’t attend the prom due to Ramadan. An event which, according to the same rule book they shove in our faces on a daily basis, dictates they are unable to attend. Oh, look, there’s that ‘H’ word again.

Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi reported teacher at his secondary school for being an Islamophobe because he condemned suicide bombers

Salman Abedi
(The Sun) The Manchester attacker – who slaughtered 22 people at a concert by pop-star Ariana Grande on Monday – studied at Burnage Academy for Boys between 2009 and 2011.

Abedi was part of an Arabic-speaking “clique” during his time at the school, The Times reports.

He is believed to have been part of a group of teens that became upset when one of their teachers brought up the topic of suicide attacks.

The teacher “asked what they thought of someone who would strap on a bomb and blow people up”, according to a source quoted by the paper.

The source said the boys then went to their RE teacher and lodged a complaint, telling them it was “Islamophobic”.

The source added: “[Abedi] was a silly boy, not very serious. He was not smart enough to be a mastermind of anything like that.”

A spokesperson for Burnage Academy said yesterday: “We feel the pain that Manchester feels. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Mancunians against terrorism in all forms.”

Pals of the evil killer yesterday revealed his wild youth of booze and drug-taking – and how he was nicknamed “Dumbo” because of his big ears.

Pictures show him grinning in a bar with three student friends and on a beach in Libya, before he is thought to have been indoctrinated.

Pals described the brainy Manchester United fan as “very jolly”.

But over the past two years he is said to have changed completely after a number of trips to Libya to visit his family.

Russia has a Batmobile?

(Moscow) The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) is the successor to the KGB and as such has a lot of clout. So much clout that it can sanction the building of its own armoured vehicles and so a few years back it wanted and received a brand new armoured vehicles. This vehicle remained off the record until President Putin inspected the ZiL Karatel armoured car, (Aka Falkatus) last February



Developed by the Russian Company ZiL, the vehicle uses a four-wheeled chassis from a Kamaz-4911 truck. The Falkatus can run up to a maximum road speed of 150 km/h with a total weight of 12,000 kg. The vehicle is motorized with a 8 cylinder engine developing 730 hp. The Falkatus provides a ballistic protection against firing of small of 7.62mm caliber. The vehicle can carry a total of 10 military personnel including driver and commander. There is two doors on each side of the hull and one hydraulic ramp at the rear. The driver and commander are seated at the front of the vehicle near the engine compartment. Six seats are placed back to back along the longitudinal axis of the vehicle and two are placed facing backwards in a row between the rear axle.
I also found this video which somebody posted of the Falkatus he came across in a reststop:

Well last week it made it first public début in Dagestan

(Bosaso Islamic State has claimed its first suicide attack in Somalia, killing five people at a checkpoint in the Tuesday in the semi-autonomous region of Puntland. (Puntland set up its own government in1998, but unlike neighbouring Somaliland, it has not declared full independence.)

The suicide bomber detonated his explosives vest at a checkpoint late Tuesday in northeastern port city of Bosaso. local police official Mohamed Dahir Adan.
"Security forces stopped the suspect when he approached but he detonated himself leaving five people dead. One of the security officers and four civilians were killed in the blast"
ISIS has claimed responsibly for the attack and boasted that the group carried out its first suicide bombing in Somalia. Bossaso is no stranger to ISIS terrorist attacks. Terrorists attacked a hotel there in February resulting in at least four deaths, including two attackers.

Kenya: Police officers killed in Islamist bomb attack

(NAIROBI) Three police officers have been killed by a roadside bomb in northern Kenya on Wednesday.

The officers’ Toyota Land Cruiser is believed to have hit a device planted by al-Shabaab terrorists, eight people were also injured in the incident in Liboi town, which lies around 10 kilometres (6 miles) from the Somali border in Garissa County. The officers who were killed and those who were injured are part of a team sent here to heighten security after two similar attacks in the recent weeks .



The attack takes the toll of police officers killed in similar border attacks in northern Kenya this month to 10.

SYRIA SITUATION REPORT: MAY 10 - 18, 2017

(ISW) The nice people at the Institute for the Study of War have brought out a couple of map which show the situation inside Syria as of Thursday the 18th, May 2017:


Russia, Iran, and Syria redeployed forces to constrain the activities of the U.S. in Eastern Syria. Pro-regime forces reportedly deployed hundreds of fighters along the Damascus - Baghdad Highway in Central Syria at the urging of Russia following several weeks of advances in the area by opposition groups backed by the U.S. and Jordan. The U.S. later conducted an airstrike against a pro-regime convoy advancing against opposition groups at Al-Tanaf on the Syrian-Iraqi Border on May 18. Pro-regime forces also seized the Jirah Airbase in Eastern Aleppo Province from ISIS on May 12. These movements suggest that pro-regime forces intend to insert themselves into the campaigns against ISIS in Ar-Raqqa City and Deir ez-Zour Province - thereby pre-empting long-term expansion by the U.S. in Eastern Syria. ISW has previously recommended that the U.S. refocus the campaign against ISIS towards Deir ez-Zour Province as a long-term base for operations against both ISIS and the Russo-Iranian Coalition in Syria.


The U.S. and Turkey likely failed to overcome their strategic divide during a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Turkish President Recep Erdogan on May 16. Trump reiterated his support for Turkey in the “fight against terror groups” including as ISIS and the PKK but did not address his recent decision to directly arm the Syrian Kurdish YPG. Erdogan condemned the decision as an “absolutely unacceptable” measure that presented a “clear and present danger” to Turkey. Erdogan also reiterated his calls for the U.S. to extradite exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen. The White House likely offered greater cooperation with Erdogan against the PKK in Turkey and Northern Iraq to mitigate the risk of an imminent rift with Turkey. These efforts nonetheless remain insufficient to reverse the growing strategic divergence between the U.S. and Turkey.

Philippines: ISIS gunmen take control of Marawi city

(Manila)  Terrorists from a group linked to Isis have stormed a city in the Philippines resulting in thousands of civilians having to flee the area . 


The terrorists from the Muslim group called Maute set about on their “Kill them all in the name of Allah day” following a failed raid by soldiers on Tuesday on a hideout of the terrorist group, in which to capture Isnilon Hapilon, (Leader of the Abu Sayyaf group notorious for piracy, banditry and for kidnapping and beheading Westerners.)which triggered clashes and chaos across the largely Muslim city of Marawi.

Troops are currently trying to contain the terrorists who have taken over large parts of city, setting building ablaze and taking Christian’s hostage in which to use as leverage. Father Socrates Villegas, president of Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines reported:
“They have threatened to kill the hostages if the government forces unleashed against them are not recalled,”
Both soldiers and rebels have set up checkpoints and road blocks on routes in and out of Marawi and streams of men, women and children are fleeing the area.


President Rodrigo Duterte has declared martial law and a state of emergency in the province of Mindano.

China: Chinese Z-19 Black Whirlwind armed reconnaissance/attack helicopter makes maiden flight

(Beijing) The export version of China's Harbin Aviation Industries (Group) Company (HAIG) Z-19 Black Whirlwind armed reconnaissance/attack helicopter took to its maiden flight the other day. Based on the Harbin Z-9W (itself a copy of the Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin) The Z-19 has followed a similar development as did the Bell AH-1 Cobra from the Bell UH-1 Iroquois aka "Huey", where a transport helicopter has been slimmed down into a gunship. Whilst not in the same league as the likes of the US AH64D/E, the Russian Mil 28 or even the European Tigre, the Z-19 will afford a cheap modern gunship capability to most cash strapped third world countries.

In Chinese service the Z-19, standing operating procedure is to support the much heavier CAIC WZ-10, attack helicopter on the battlefield via its better observation capabilities in which to spot and target the enemy.





Whilst the Z-19 has been developed from the Z-9 helicopter, it does shares some resemblance to the Japanese OH-1 scout/observation helicopter, but that simply opens up a different kettle of fish.

Turkey: US Ambassador called over arrest of Erdogan's brawling bodyguards

(Ankara) Last week, the Turkish dictator for life whilst on a visit to Washington DC set his bodyguards upon Kurds protesting his visit. Video evidence clearly shows the Turkish suit wearing bodyguards pushing through police lines, crossing the road and violently attacking the Kurds, resulting in 9 receiving injuries resulting in a hospital visit (2 serious). 2 Turks were arrested by the Washington, DC police, but after they brought out the 'diplomatic immunity card', they were released.
Well, that hasn't gone down with the Turks who summonsed John Bass, the US ambassador to Turkey, in which to lodge a verbal and written protest at the behaviour of US security personnel, saying they had taken actions that were “aggressive and unprofessional” and “contrary to diplomatic rules and practices”.

Why am I not surprised at how the clearly aggressive Turks are playing the victim card here? Now contrast that mindset with the modus operandi of Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, Taliban or any Islamic NGO in the West. Notice anything?

Germany: 16-year-old Syrian knifeman disarmed at gunpoint by police

(Köln) So, yesterday, in Cologne a 16-year-old Syrian walked into a school, pulled out a knife and threatened a number of real children.


Thankfully, a brave teacher placed himself between the knifeman and the children and called the police, whereupon the so called Syrian child did a runner. He was later apprehended by police at gun point, suffering from self-inflicted knife wounds. The Police have already labelled him as having mental issues.

Child care in the Middle East

The other day, the Kid Rights Index 2017 came out with a list of the most child friendly countries in the world and out of 166 countries they had the UK and New Zealand coming in at 156 and 158 respectively. According to these so called Human rights champions, countries such as Iraq, Eritrea, Libya, Niger, Nigeria, Mali, Pakistan, Yemen and even Syria did ever so much better than the two first world countries (or even Poland for that matter, which came in last). I wonder if the people who collated all the information for that survey managed to come across this video of child care from the Middle East (all of whom look after their children that the UK):

Canada: Snowflake students take offence at Lou Reed's song "Take a Walk on the Wild Side"

(Guelph) The University of Guelph Central Student Association saw fit last week to apologise to the world over how they had included the 1972 Lou Reed's record “Take a Walk on the Wildside” on a playlist. It appears that without even listening to the record, they labelled it ‘Transphobic”.


What is it about these lily-white children who find fault everywhere they look? The record isn’t transphobic, but actually it is a recognition of trans people, released at a time when homosexuality across the Western world was mostly against the law. Not only that but Lou Reed at the time lived with (as in the biblical sense) a number of trans people. The lyrics for ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ were ground-breaking and risqué for the time, telling stories not usually told in rock songs up to then, and containing references to prostitution, transsexuals, and oral sex. Not only did Reed reference and recognise actual trans people into the song at a time when they were seen as deviants:
Holly" is based on Holly Woodlawn, a transgender actress who lived in Miami Beach, Florida as a child. In 1962, after being bullied by transphobes, the fifteen-year-old ran away from home; and, as in the lyrics, learned how to pluck her eyebrows while hitchhiking to New York.
"Candy" is based on Candy Darling, a transgender actress and the subject of an earlier song by Lou Reed, "Candy Says". She grew up on Long Island ("the island") and was a regular at "the back room" of Max's Kansas City.
"Little Joe" was the nickname of Joe Dallesandro, an actor who starred in Flesh, a 1968 film about a teenage hustler.
"Sugar Plum Fairy" was a reference to actor Joe Campbell, who played a character by that name in Warhol's 1965 film, My Hustler. The term was a euphemism for "drug dealer".
"Jackie" is based on Jackie Curtis, another Warhol actor. "Speeding" and "crashing" are drug references. 
but he named the album it came from: Transformer (big hint, dickheads?


Not many people from that generation had no issues with the song, and less have for each generational iteration since then. I mean if they did, stars such as Elton John/Freddy Mercury/Divine/Boy George/Marx Almond/Barry Manilow wouldn't have done as well as they did. But hey, the latest bunch of so called adults have fake concern at how the song may have offended somebody. Gee, I wonder what 'Rachel', Lou Reed's muse at the time, thought of the song, seeing as Rachel was actually a trans person born Tommy.

Message to any infantile students who happen to come across this post: Minorities have seen more doors open for them during the last 45 years than in the thousands of years before 1972. Look in the bloody mirror, the biggest group of intolerant bigots are looking back at you.

Just what is it about today's snowflakes who can find offence everywhere they look?

Sharia peddler Linda Sarsour - "Mohammed was a feminist"

(US) Race hustler Linda Sarsour really scrapes the bottom of the gutter when she claims that paedophillic warlord Mohammed was actually a human rights activist, the first victim of Islamophobia, and a feminist. Words fail me.

Italy: African migrant threatens to kill himself, unless the police return his drug money

(Albenga) An African migrant drug dealer wasn't happy with how the local police during a drug bust in April has confiscated his drugs and money (a stolen car, 10 grams of hashish and € 500). So, after getting no joy when he marched down to the local cop shop, demanding they return his loot, he walked across the road, climbed up to the first floor and threatened to kill himself, unless the police did as he demanded. Instead, they called the fire brigade and brought the so called victim down to earth.
It appears that the Italian penchant to save migrants lives hundreds of miles away from Italy is coming back to hit them big style.
