She said the women were upset and yelling. She said the security officers started pushing them away and the girls stood their ground, at which point the security officers grabbed them, pushed them to the ground and handcuffed them.

Sounds like a description of a protest from somewhere in a Muslim country. Mission accomplished. Muslim women tend to use their religion against men when protesting, basically daring men to lay hands on them, knowing their religion forbids a strange man from touching a Muslim woman they aren't married to. So you see in the Middle East protests some women are really loud and get right in the face of men and soldiers, screaming all kinds of stuff. Add to that, people of the Middle East tend to be rather...animated...when they are upset.

In some of these type cases, I have the feeling it's intentional, that certain "Muslims" have intentionally forced the issue, through local laws, as they have been doing for centuries, ever since forcing religion upon people by the point of a sword was basically banned by modern society. Now Islam invades through legal immigration, then start forcing recognition of their religion on the local community, using secular laws against religious descrimination as their defenses. I have a very strong feeling somebody will get sued out of that little scuffle, claiming their religious freedoms were violated.

here is a typical "truther" response to Sharia. It fully shows just how much "truther" research is involved with most of these people.

Quote
..so, even the so-called alternative media/truthers are under the same globalist/nwo darwinistic/secularist spell/propaganda that Islam is inherently evil, and the Shariah is oppressive.. Wilfully and consciously buying into the view conjured up by Islam and its comprehensive, all-encompassing jurisprudence whenever mention of them is made in their literature. I wonder why (and how) the truly alternative mindset is so antagonistic towards Islam to their very core.. They seem to lose the will to differentiate, to not engage in oversimplification, to investigate, to be real truthers, instead of being opportunistic propagandists that are willing to put everything on the line, including their purported trutherism, in order to "blast through enemy propaganda" with some of their own..

Yeah, it was on that "other" truther forum(you know what I'm talking about Dok and Kilika) where posters who referred to themselves as Christians said how they yoked with Muslims, and they weren't the "brutal" people the MSM makes them out to be, while another poster said how there should be no problems walking into a mosque and being with them.

Oh yeah, they forgot about that pastor in Kansas that got convicted of merely giving out bibles to Muslims at a mosque.

What the "truther" movement doesn't realize is that our battles our SPIRITUAL, NOT against carnal and flesh.

Muslims Hold Christians Under Stronghold of Fear in Zanzibar

On Tanzania’s semi-autonomous island of Zanzibar, Christians live in a climate of fear. It’s a place where a young man flees the island to escape death threats from his Muslim family, and a Christian who accidentally burned pages of the Quran opts for jail by entering a guilty plea rather than face certain death from a furious mob.

Yusuf Abdalla, 23, fled to Moshi, mainland Tanzania, after his family threatened to kill him in June. Having converted to Christianity in October after hearing the gospel on the radio, he was enrolled at a vocational school in Zanzibar city to learn tailoring when his family found out in March that he had left Islam.

The beating he then received from family members left him with injuries to his head, hand and torso, as well as a serious mouth wound and substantial loss of blood, said an area pastor who requested anonymity.

“The family then took back the tailoring machine which they had bought him,” the pastor said. “They also vowed not to support his training.”

Muslims text death threats to Christians
'We must kill the infidels and destroy their churches'


Muslim extremists are using a relatively new tool in their attempt to intimidate and bully Christians, with death threats sent by text-messaging to Christian church leaders, a new report confirms.

The report comes from Compass Direct, which monitors and reports on Christian issues around the globe. The situation has developed in Sudan.

"We want this country to be purely an Islamic state, so we must kill the infidels and destroy their churches all over Sudan," Compass Direct sources in the African nation have reported that one text message said.

The texts were dispatched to leaders of at least 10 churches in the Khartoum area, and came in recent weeks, the report said.

Christian church leaders in the region have been at risk for years, even with the recent declaration of a new nation, South Sudan, which suggests some small level of separation from the Muslim-dominated north Sudan.

But sources for the ministry organization say that Islamists have continued to make targets out of Christians.

Christian Accused of Blasphemy in Pakistan Dies in Jail

A Christian man accused of blasphemy died in a Pakistani prison on Sept. 9, the International Christian Concern announced Tuesday.

Aslam Masih died of a “treatable disease” after officials denied him proper medical care, ICC reported.

He had reportedly died of Dengue virus, an infectious tropical disease.

“Once again, Pakistan has shown its contempt for the lives of its religious minorities,” said Jonathan Racho, ICC’s Regional Manager for South Asia. “We urge the international community to pressure Pakistan protect the rights of Christians and other vulnerable groups in the country.”


ICC is an advocacy group for religious persecution.

Indonesia Violence: 'Something Radically Wrong'

CIKEUSIK, Indonesia -- Christians often face persecution in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country. But other Muslims have also been attacked by radical Islamists in their own country.

In February, religious fanaticism boiled over in the small village of Cikeusik. A mob of more than 1,000 Muslim hardliners attacked 17 members of a small Islamic sect known as the Ahmadiyah.

Wielding machetes, and shouting "Kafir!" - the Arabic word for infidel - they threw rocks at the Ahmadis and mercilessly clubbed three of them to death.

Many Muslims consider the Ahmadis to be infidels because they do not accept Mohammed as the final prophet. Instead, Ahmadis embrace their Hindu founder, Ghulam Ahmad as savior and messiah.

After the ferocious attack, the Ahmadis abandoned their homes and none of them dared set foot in Cikeusik again.

"We were traumatized when they attacked the house of the Ahmadis who lived right next door. But I'm glad they're gone," said Wildan bin Satim, a former neighbor of an Ahmadi family.

"They have a different belief. They don't pray with us in the mosque," he said. "They are a cult and we don't want them in our village."

Twelve men who were part of the brutal murders are now back in the village after serving just five months in prison.

This incident has once again raised questions on the intolerance of this country towards religious minorities.

One Victim's Story

Deden Sudjana, a victim of the sectarian violence, almost lost his arm defending himself from a machete attack.

As the security officer for the Ahmadiyah, he was trying to peacefully negotiate with the police before the attacks ensued.

Sudjana was charged with disobeying the police and inciting violence. He was sentenced to six months in prison.

The Islamists responsible for murdering the Ahmadis received only three to five months behind bars.

Sudjana is angry that his attackers are free and have even been given a hero's welcome home while he's still in jail.

His lawyers say he can an appeal his conviction, but Sudjana would rather not try.

"Deden is depressed. He said that he cannot stand prison life and so he will not make an appeal," Andi Mutaqqien, his attorney, said.

"Because in this country, most of the time when the case involves religious minorities, the attackers -- mostly Muslim hardliners -- get less of a sentence than the victims," he said.

"And when the victims make an appeal, there's the danger of getting a longer prison term," he noted.

"It is scary for me to see Muslims kill fellow Muslims. I believe all religions come with peace; They teach about peace and how to help others," Firdaus Mubarik, an Ahmadiyah spokesperon, told CBN News.

"Like our fellow Indonesians, we fought for the independence of this country. But until now, we are still fighting for our freedom," Mubarik added. "I hope this government will protect the freedom of their people including the Ahmadis."

'As If They Are Not Human'

Christian churches are also targeted by Muslim hardliners. In recent years, Christian churches have been closed and Christian schools and students attacked.

Despite this persecution, government officials remain silent.

"It will condemn violence in generic terms. But it won't urge the government to take a stand in protection of Indonesian citizens whatever their beliefs," Sydney Jones, director of the International Crisis Group, said.

"And it won't take a stand in support of constitutionally protective freedom of religion," Jones said.

"These are not just pre-meditated murders. These are lynch mobs or individuals taking stones and clubs, smashing the skulls until these people were dead," he explained.

"It's as though these people were no longer human beings on either side," he said. "The people they were targeting, they didn't see as human beings any longer and when a society comes to that point there's something radically wrong."

One of those brutally killed in the attack was Mubarik's friend, Chandra. Chandra and his wife waited for a long time for their first child, but sadly he was killed just weeks before their child was born.

Mubarik is hoping that justice will be served for Chandra and his son and for all the other victims, even if it takes a whole generation.

Another Bomb Found at Church in Indonesia

A day after a suicide bomb attack wounded 28 at a church in Indonesia, affiliated with Pastor Rick Warren’s Saddleback megachurch, explosives were found in front of another church in a different district Monday, exposing the magnitude of the threat to minority Christians.

While a suicide bomber struck Sepenuh Injil Bethel Church (translated as “Bethel Full Gospel Church”) in Solo City in Central Java province Sunday morning, police found another bomb in front of Maranatha church in Ambon Island, the capital of Maluku province, Monday.

“This is in a series of bombs that we found there [in Ambon],” the Jakarta Globe newspaper quoted National Police spokesman Anton Bachrul Alam as saying. “All are homemade bombs, they are all similar. So the maker is the same.”

Ambon Island in East Indonesia has been religiously tense since Sept. 11 when a clash between Muslims and Christians erupted over rumors that a Muslim motorcycle taxi driver who suffered a fatal traffic accident was killed by Christians. The ensuing violence left at least eight people, three Christians and five Muslims, dead.

It is being suspected that Sunday’s attack on the church in Central Java was an act of revenge for the latest spate of violence in Ambon, which has witnessed several deadly sectarian clashes for over a decade. Over 9,000 people have died in those clashes.

Investigation agencies believe that the suicide bomber, identified as 35-year-old Sharif, was from the Tawhid wal Jihad network. A group with a similar name, Jama’at al-Tawhid wal Jihad, which is linked to al-Qaida, has been operating from Iraq for years.

Christian Pakistani School Girl Accused of Blasphemy Over Spelling Error


A teenage Pakistani Christian girl has been accused of blasphemy after she accidentally misspelled a word in a poem about the Muslim prophet Muhammad during an examination.

The eighth grader, Faryal Bhatti, who attends a girls' high school in the Pakistan Ordnance Factories colony at Havelian, near Abbottabad, misspelled the word 'naat' (hymn) as 'laanat' (curse) when answering a question about a poem written in praise of Muhammad. The two words, written in Urdu, differ only with a coma and are, according to commentators, easy to confuse, especially for a young person.

The exam took place Thursday, Sept. 22. The teacher noticed the mistake while collecting the papers and beat Faryal as punishment, according to The Express Tribune, a Pakistani news outlet.

However, after the girl’s classmates learned of the affair, the teacher brought the matter to the notice of the principal, who informed the school's management.

Friday, male students of the school and some religious leaders reportedly organized a rally demanding that Faryal be formally accused of blasphemy. The case caused an uproar among the local religious community, the Tribune reports.

On that same day, prayer leaders reportedly condemned the incident in their sermons, asking the colony’s administration to not only take action against Faryal but her entire family.

The girl and her mother appeared before a school commission to explain that the error was nothing more but an honest mistake.

Saturday, school administration and local religious leaders reportedly decided that the "mistake" was serious enough to charge Faryal with blasphemy and expel her from the school.

The Tribune reports that Faryal's mother was punished as well, and was transferred from POF Hospital Havelian, where she has worked as nurse for several years, and relocated to POF Wah Cantonment Hospital.

Jonathan Racho, the Regional Manager for South Asia at the International Christian Concern (ICC), an advocacy group, told The Christian Post that the blasphemy law is one of the most controversial laws in Pakistan, and that it is often used for persecuting religious minorities.

Blasphemy against the the prophet Muhammad can even result in a death sentence, while offending the Quran can be punished with a lifetime prison sentence.

Christian Mother of Five in Pakistan Alleges ****

A Christian mother of five was allegedly raped by two Muslim men last week, and area Islamists are threatening to harm her family if charges against the suspects are not dropped, the woman and her husband told Compass.
 
On Thursday (Sept. 15), the 32-year-old woman said, she was returning home to Mustafabad, in Punjab Province’s Kasur district, from a garment factory where she works. Two Muslims, identified only as 23-year-old Bhallu and 27-year-old Shera, along with an unidentified accomplice, allegedly abducted her at gunpoint, took her to an abandoned house in the area and raped her, she said.
 
Working late, she had reached the Mustafabad bus stop at 11:45 p.m. and had begun walking to her home five minutes away; the street was deserted, said the alleged victim, whose name is withheld.
“As soon as I entered our street, Bhallu appeared from the shadows and put his hand on my mouth,” she told Compass by phone. “A second person, who I later recognized as Bhallu’s friend Shera, came from behind and put a pistol on my temple. A third person also appeared on the scene, and together they first gagged me and then forcibly took me to an abandoned house. I tried my best to get free from their hold and save myself, but they were too powerful for me.”
 
Once inside, she said, they took off her gag, and she pleaded with them to leave her alone.
 
“I tried screaming, but they hit me,” she said, sobbing. “Not for a minute did they acknowledge that I was a mother to five children. Then they raped me, one after the other. Their third accomplice stood guard as they tore in on me like animals.”
 
She said that her tormentors let her go after more than an hour.
 
“They had torn my clothes, and I could barely step outside the house,” she said. “I don’t know how I managed to reach my home … Words fail me even now.”
 
Muslim criminals in Pakistan, where the population is more than 95 percent Muslim according to Operation World, tend to assume they will not be prosecuted if their victims are Christians. The accuser said Muslim men in the area have been harassing Christian women for some time.
 
“There are around 500 Christian houses in this area, which is predominantly inhabited by Muslims,” she said. “There have been several instances when they have publicly harassed us but have gotten away with it, because we keep silent to avoid a clash.”
 
A month ago, as she was returning home from work, she was near her house when she suddenly felt someone pulling her head scarf, she said. She turned and found one of Bhallu’s friends holding the head scarf.
 
“I started screaming, and my husband and a neighbor rushed out, but the boy walked away as if nothing had happened,” she said. “We did not say a word about this to anyone out of shame and fear of the Muslims.”
 
She said that after that incident, her husband, who works as a sweeper, began accompanying her to and from the bus stop.
 
“But there were days when he could not accompany me to the bus stop, and I used to walk alone,” she said.
 
Her husband, Mushtaq Masih, said that he was speechless after she told him about the ordeal.
 
“We have five children – three boys and two girls – with the oldest daughter studying in sixth grade – I cannot express the thoughts that filled my mind at that time,” Masih said. “The Muslims had ruined us completely, and I did not know what would happen to us if we reported the crime, but seeing my wife devastated, I decided to face the rapists.”
 
He called police, who visited the crime scene and took the woman to the hospital for a medical examination that proved she had been gang-raped, he said. Police filed a First Information Report (FIR No. 491/11) against Bhallu and his accomplices.
 
The woman said that she knew Bhallu only because he lived in her neighborhood, and that although she recognized Shera, she did not know his name until the FIR was filed.
 
Masih said that Shera’s name came up during the initial police investigation, and he was in custody when the investigating officer asked Masih to bring his wife to the police station to identify the suspects. Bhallu had fled the area.
 
His wife said that as they reached the police station, Muslims warned the family against pointing out Shera.
 
“They told us that they will kill my children and husband if I identify Shera,” she said. “They said that we should not forget that we are chooras [sweepers, a derogatory word for Christians] and can bring no harm to them. They also warned that our daughters would face a similar fate if we did not listen to them.”
 
She refused to identify Shera and returned home, she said.
 
“What happened to me should not happen to any of them,” she said. “My children are my world, how could I put their lives in danger? … Please pray that no woman suffers what I have been through.”
 
Pressure to Drop Charges
Area Christians were shocked. The family continues to receive threats to withdraw the case against the primary suspect, Bhallu, who has been seen in the area several times though police have yet to arrest him, Masih said.
 
“Our Muslim neighbors are pressuring us to withdraw the case,” he said. “They want us to reach an agreement with Bhallu and his friends. They want us to ‘pardon’ the criminals who have dishonored us.”
 
Police are using delay tactics in the pursuit of Bhallu, Masih said.
 
“We told the Mustafabad police in-charge that the Muslims are forcing us to withdraw the case, but he is not bothered,” Masih said. He added that some policemen had also asked him to withdraw the case, saying there was little chance his wife would get justice.
 
“They asked me to take money in return for withdrawing the case,” Masih said. “They want that I should sell my wife’s honor for money.”
 
Investigating Officer Muhammad Sharif dismissed the Christians’ accusations that police had sought money in exchange for dropping the case, and he refused to acknowledge that Muslims were threatening the woman’s family and needed police protection.
 
Sharif told Compass that police were trying to arrest Bhallu.
 
“We took his father into custody but released him after interrogation,” he said. “I will soon catch hold of Bhallu.”
 
Sharif said the investigation would accelerate after the primary suspect is arrested.
 
As Masih and the few Christians daring to support him ponder their next step, the woman maintains a faint hope of getting justice in a country where Christians have little legal or societal standing. Mukhtar Masih, an elder of the area Presbyterian church, said the Christians were helpless as the Muslims held sway over local police.
 
“Several Christian women have complained that the Muslims have harassed them, but this is something that we have to live with every day,” he said, adding that even though the community was shocked, no one was coming forward to help the family because “they are afraid of the Muslims.”
 
Area resident Arif Masih told Compass that the Christians’ fears were understandable.
 
“We don’t have anyone who can face the police and the Muslims,” he said. “What happened to Masih’s wife is very tragic and can happen to any one of us, but is there really anything we can do about it?”

Christian Girl, Family in Pakistan Expelled over Misspelling

Wild accusation of ‘blasphemy’ forces eighth-grader’s family to relocate.

LAHORE, Pakistan, September 28 (CDN) — An eighth-grade student in Pakistan has been expelled from school and her family forced to relocate after the Christian girl misspelled an Urdu word, leading to accusations of “blasphemy,” sources said.

In the garrison city of Abbottabad, 13-year-old Faryal Bhatti, a student at the Sir Syed Girls High School in Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF) Colony Havelian, misspelled a word on an Urdu exam on Thursday (Sept. 22) while answering a question on a poem in praise of the Muslim prophet Muhammad, according to area Christians.

Faryal wrote laanat, the transliteration of the Urdu word for “curse,” instead of naat, which means a poem written in praise of Islam’s prophet, they said. The school administration and local Islamists declared that the error was serious enough to violate Pakistan’s widely condemned laws against blaspheming Muhammad and Islam.

Conviction under Section 295-C of Pakistan’s blasphemy law for derogatory comments about Muhammad is punishable by death, though life imprisonment is also possible.

Iran actress sentenced to one year in jail and 90 lashes: report

Actress Marzieh Vafamehr has been sentenced to a year in jail and 90 lashes for her role in a film about the limits imposed on artists in the Islamic republic, an Iranian opposition website reported Sunday.

"A verdict has been issued for Marzieh Vafamehr, sentencing her to a year in jail and 90 lashes," Kalameh.com reported.

"Her lawyer has appealed the sentence, which was handed down yesterday (Saturday)," the report added, without giving further details.

Vafamehr was arrested in July after appearing in "My Tehran for Sale," which came under harsh criticism in conservative circles.

The film, produced in collaboration with Australia, tells the story of a young actress in Tehran whose theatre work is banned by the authorities. She is then forced to lead a secret life in order to express herself artistically.

The Fars news agency said the movie had not been approved for screening in Iran and was being distributed in the country illegally.

Vafamehr was released in late July after posting unspecified bail.

Violent Islamic Extremists in Somalia Reportedly Beheaded a Christian Teen

October 21, 2011

Members of Somalia's al Shabbab terror group

According to reports, Guled Jama Muktar, a 17-year-old Christian, was violently murdered last month by Islamic radicals. Members of al Shabbab, an extremist group, purportedly beheaded the teenager near Mogadishu, Somalia, in late September.

The al-Qaeda-linked terror group has previously vowed to purge Somalia of Christianity. According to an anonymous source, the terrorists had been monitoring Muktar’s family since they arrived in the unstable nation from Kenya back in 2008.

Apparently, the militants, who are fighting to take control of the nation’s government, learned from observation that the family was Christian. Here’s how the Baptist Press recaps the events that unfolded:

    Based on talks with the boy’s parents and their neighbors, the source said al Shabaab members arrived at Muktar’s home at 6 a.m. on Sept. 25 when his parents, whose names are withheld for security reasons, were already at work at their retail space at a market on the outskirts of Mogadishu.

    The extremists found Muktar as he was preparing to go to school, the source said.

    “The neighbors heard screaming coming from the house, and then it immediately stopped,” the source said. “After awhile, they saw a white car leaving the homestead.”

Following the incident, neighbors contacted the boy’s parents. After returning from the market, they quickly buried their son, then fled; their location is currently unknown.

This isn’t the first incident in which Christians have been targeted. Currently, conditions for non-Muslims are less-than-friendly in Somalia. While al-Shabaab wants to impose sharia law, it seems the current government there isn’t much more favorable to religious minorities.

Compas Direct News, which highlights instances of persecution against Christians, writes:

    With estimates of al Shabaab’s size ranging from 3,000 to 7,000, the insurgents seek to impose a strict version of sharia (Islamic law), but the government in Mogadishu fighting to retain control of the country treats Christians little better than the al Shabaab extremists do. While proclaiming himself a moderate, President Sheikh Sharif Sheik Ahmed has embraced a version of sharia that mandates the death penalty for those who leave Islam.

    Al Shabaab was among several splinter groups that emerged after Ethiopian forces removed the Islamic Courts Union, a group of sharia courts, from power in Somalia in 2006. Al Shabaab has been designated a terrorist organization by several western governments.

Open Doors, another group that monitors Christian persecution, publishes the “World Watch List,” which ranks nations in terms of how prevalent persecution against Christians is. Currently, Somalia is ranked fifth on this list. Open Doors writes:

    It remained very dangerous to be a Christian here in 2010. At least eight Christians were killed and a quarter of all Christians fled the country. The few Christians are heavily persecuted and must practice their faith in secret. The country has been without an effective central government since 1991. Islamist insurgents Al-Shabaab control most of the south, and are effectively trying to wipe out Christianity from the country.  There are, however, indications that they are losing popularity.

The situation is certainly grim and the most recent report about Muktar’s horrific murder shows that the situation is nowhere near improving.

satirical magazine bombed, after naming 'Prophet Muhammad' as its editor 

The offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris have been destroyed in a petrol bomb attack.

It comes a day after the publication named the Prophet Muhammad as its "editor-in-chief" for its next issue.

Its cover carried a caricature of the Prophet making a facetious comment.

The editor-in-chief of the magazine, Stephane Charbonnier, said that Islam could not be excluded from freedom of the press.

He said: "If we can poke fun at everything in France, if we can talk about anything in France apart from Islam or the consequences of Islamism, that is annoying."

Mr Charbonnier, also known as Charb, said he did not see the attack on the magazine as the work of French Muslims, but of what he called "idiot extremists".

Threats
 
The magazine said Wednesday's edition was intended to "celebrate" the victory of an Islamist party in last month's Tunisian elections.

Just 15 years old, Sahar Gul has become the bruised and bloodied face of women's rights in Afghanistan. The teenage bride's eyes were swollen nearly shut as she was wheeled into the hospital seven months after her arranged marriage. Black scabs crusted her fingertips where her nails used to be.

According to officials in northeastern Baghlan province, Gul's in-laws kept her in a basement for six months, ripped her fingernails out, tortured her with hot irons and broke her fingers — all in an attempt to force her into prostitution. Police freed her after her uncle called authorities.

The horrific images, captured by television news cameras last week, transfixed Afghanistan and set off a storm of condemnation. President Hamid Karzai set up a commission to investigate, and his health minister visited her bedside. Police arrested her in-laws, who denied abusing her. A warrant was issued for her husband, who serves in the Afghan army.

The case highlights both the problems and the progress of women 10 years after the Taliban's fall. Gul's egregious wounds and underage wedlock are a reminder that girls and women still suffer shocking abuse. But the public outrage and the government's response to it also show that the country is slowly changing.

"Let's break the dead silence on women's plight," read the title of an editorial Wednesday in the Afghanistan Times.

Tensions Rise in Kashmir, India after SHARIA court issued ‘Guilty Verdict,’ Fatwa

Christian workers are fleeing India’s Kashmir Valley after a Shariah, or Islamic law, court issued a “guilty verdict” against three Christian leaders, issued a fatwa against Christian schools and allegedly launched a door-to-door campaign to bring converts back to Islam.

The court, which has no legal authority, found the Rev. Chander Mani Khanna, pastor of All Saints Church in Srinagar, Dutch Catholic missionary Jim Borst and Christian worker Gayoor Messah guilty of “luring the valley Muslims to Christianity,” The Times of India daily reported on Dec. 19.

The three had already left the region apparently due to rising tensions.

Afghan woman killed, apparently for bearing girl

An Afghan woman has been strangled death, apparently by her husband, who was upset that she gave birth to a second daughter rather than the son he had hoped for, police said Monday.
It was the latest in a series of grisly examples of subjugation of women that have made headlines in Afghanistan in the past few months -- including a 15-year-old tortured and forced into prostitution by in-laws and a female **** victim who was imprisoned for adultery.

The episodes have raised the question of what will happen to the push for women's rights in Afghanistan as the international presence here shrinks along with the military drawdown. NATO forces are scheduled to pull out by the end of 2014.

Banished: Shari’a Court Orders 3 Christian Pastors and Catholic Missionary Out of India's Kashmir

India’s Christian minority has long faced harassment at the hands of militant Hindus, but in the Indian-controlled portion of Muslim-majority Kashmir the threat is coming from Islamic fundamentalists.

A “shari’a court” in Srinagar, capital of India’s Jammu and Kashmir state, has issued a decree expelling four pastors from the territory, after accusing them of using financial inducements to convert young Muslims to Christianity.

Although the court has no legal jurisdiction over non-Muslims, political parties have reportedly remained silent; Indian churches have been alone in protesting the ruling.

Afghans protest over reported Koran desecration at U.S. base

About 2,000 Afghans protested outside the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan on Tuesday over a report that foreign soldiers improperly disposed of copies of the Koran.

U.S. helicopters fired flares to try to break up as many as 2,000 demonstrators who massed outside several gates to the base, chanting anti-foreigner slogans and throwing stones.

Roshna Khalid, the provincial governor's spokeswoman, said copies of the Muslim holy book had been burnt inside Bagram airbase, an hour's drive north of the capital Kabul, citing accounts from local laborers.

"The laborers normally take the garbage outside and they found the remains of Korans," Khalid said.

citing accounts from local laborers

and they take their word for this? Really? This isnt the first time this has heppened and later PROVEN false. Just look at the comments of the protestors. I would not be surprised if this is all a hoax or planted by the oh so peaceful and rightous local laborers.

Quote
"We Afghans don't want these Christians and infidels, they are the enemy of our soil, our honor and our Koran," said Haji Shirin, one of the protesters.

"I urge all Muslims to sacrifice themselves in order to pull out these troops from this soil."

Muslims stone Christians on Temple Mount


A mob of some 50 Palestinian Muslims stoned a group of Christian tourists atop Jerusalem's Temple Mount on Sunday morning. Three of the Israeli police officers who acted to protect the Christian group were wounded by the stone-throwers.

Police arrested 11 Palestinians, several of them minors, for their role in the attack.

The attack is believed to have been instigated by the former Muslim mufti of Jerusalem, Ekrama Sabri, who told Palestinian media over the weekend that Jewish groups were planning to break into the mosques that occupy the holy compound and desecrate them.

Sabri urged all local Muslims to protect the mosques from "the Israeli conspiracy against the city and its holy places."

Muslim religious figures regularly claim that Israel is plotting to destroy the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa Mosque to pave the way for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple, which the Muslims now insist never previously existed.

Afghan soldier "kills two NATO troops" at protests

An Afghan soldier joined protests on Thursday against the burning of copies of the Muslim holy book at a NATO base and shot dead two foreign troops, western military sources said.

The killings came hours after the Taliban urged Afghans to target foreign military bases and kill Westerners in retaliation for the burning of the Korans at Bagram airfield on Tuesday.

Eleven people have died in demonstrations across the country since then and 17 people have been wounded. Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets of several cities, chanting "Death to America!" and smashing cars, buildings and shops.

Karzai’s Response to Obama’s Apology: Put U.S. Troops on Trial and Punish Them

Three days after President Barack Obama dispatched his ambassador to Afghanistan to hand deliver a personal letter from the president of the United States to Afghan President Hamid Karzai apologizing because U.S. forces at Bagram Air Force Base had mistakenly burnt some Korans, Karzai has responded to the gesture in a statement broadcast live on Afghan television.

Karzai, according to a BBC translation of his remarks made Sunday, told the Afghan people he was speaking to them after discussing the matter with “jihadi leaders,” “prominent scholars,” and Afghan elected officials, and that he spoke for the “pure sentiments” of the “Afghan nation” and the “Islamic world,” when he said: “We call on the US government to bring the perpetrators of the act to justice and put them on trial and punish them.”

Nearly 1,000 Pakistani women ‘killed for honor’

At least 943 Pakistani women and girls were murdered last year for allegedly defaming their family’s honor, the country’s leading human rights group said Thursday.

The statistics highlight the growing scale of violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens and there is no law against domestic violence.

Despite progress on better protecting women’s rights, activists say the government needs to do more to prosecute murderers in cases largely dismissed by police as private, family affairs.

“At least 943 women were killed in the name of honor, of which 93 were minors,” wrote the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan in its annual report.

Egypt jails Christian student to three years in jail for insulting Islam

An Egyptian court on Wednesday sentenced a 17-year-old Christian boy to three years in jail for publishing cartoons on his Facebook page that mocked Islam and the Prophet Mohammad, actions that sparked sectarian violence.

Gamal Abdou Massoud was also accused of distributing some of his cartoons to his school friends in a village in the southern city of Assiut, home to a large Christian population and the hometown of the late Coptic Orthodox Pope Shenouda.

“Assiut child’s court ordered the jailing of Gamal Abdou Massoud … for three years after he insulted Islam and published and distributed pictures that insulted Islam and its Prophet,” the court said in a statement seen by Reuters.

The cartoons, published by Massoud in December, prompted some Muslims to attack Christians. Several Christian houses were burned and several Christians were injured in the violence.

Human rights lawyer Negad al-Borai said the jail sentence was the maximum penalty under Egyptian law for such a crime.

Egyptian beats pregnant wife to death for not voting for Mursi

An Egyptian plumber in Alexandria beat his pregnant wife to death upon learning that she had not voted for Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Mohammed Mursi, reported the Egyptian daily al-Wafd on Sunday.

According to police reports, the initial argument between the couple who was not named escalated into violence, despite her pleas. Battered and bruised, she was reported to have died at the hospital from injuries sustained.

Domestic fights have dominated Egyptian news headlines when the bid fell on the two most feared and most controversial candidates, Mursi and former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq.

Voters, along with Egyptian media personalities, heatedly defended their chosen candidates and eagerly await the result which will be announced Sunday.

Taliban shoot woman 9 times in public execution as men cheer

Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- A shot rings out, but the burqa-clad woman sitting on the rocky ground does not respond.

The man pointing a rifle at her from a few feet away lets loose another round, but still there is no reaction.

He fires a third shot, and finally the woman slumps backwards.

But the man fires another shot.

And another. And another.

Nine shots in all.

Around him, dozens of men on a hillside cheer: "God is great!"

Officials in Afghanistan, where the amateur video was filmed, believe the woman was executed because two Taliban commanders had a dispute over her, according to the governor of the province where the killing took place.

Both apparently had some kind of relationship with the woman, said Parwan province governor Abdul Basir Salangi.

"In order to save face," they accused her of adultery, Salangi said.

Then they "faked a court to decide about the fate of this woman and in one hour, they executed the woman," he added.

Both Taliban commanders were subsequently killed by a third Taliban commander, Salangi said.

"We went there to investigate and we are still looking for people who were involved in this brutal act," he said.

It is not clear from the video when it was filmed.

The killing took place in the village of Qimchok, not far north of the capital Kabul.

Lawmaker Fawzia Koofi called it a huge backward step for women's issues in Afghanistan.

"I think we will have to do something serious about this, we will have to do something as women, but also as human beings," she said. "She didn't even say one word to defend herself."

Koofi wept on Saturday as she watched the video of the execution.

The United States condemned the killing "in the strongest possible terms," calling it a "cold-blooded murder."

"The protection of women's rights is critical around the world, but especially in Afghanistan, where such rights were ignored, attacked and eroded under Taliban rule," the American embassy said in a statement on Sunday.

The public execution is the latest and among the most shocking examples of violence against women in Afghanistan, but it is far from an isolated case.

Nearly nine out of 10 women suffer physical, sexual, or psychological violence or forced marriage at least once in their lifetimes, Human Rights Watch said in its 2012 annual report.

The country has 14 shelters for abused women, a number which the campaign group says "does not meet even a small fraction of the need."

Hundreds of students and teachers at girls' schools in the country have been hospitalized with suspected poisoning this year alone. Girls were forbidden to go to school when the Taliban ruled the country from 1996 to 2001.

Salangi, the provincial governor, spoke to CNN about the killing on Sunday, the same day that representatives of more than 80 nations and organizations met to consider pouring billions more aid dollars into the country.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon urged delegates including U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not to demand complex reforms in exchange for the money.

"Afghan institutions are still in their nascent stages," he said. "The very programs which offer the best hope of sustainability of Afghan institutions should not be held hostage to complex preconditions."

Clinton said donors at the conference pledged about $16 billion for Afghanistan over four years. That amount did not include money from the United States because any foreign aid must be approved by Congress.

Convert from Islam to Christianity beheaded, video shown on Egyptian TV

Video footage of a convert from Islam to Christianity being murdered by Muslims has been shown on Egyptian TV, according to the Barnabas Fund.

The graphic incident, which is reported to have taken place in Tunisia, was aired on a program called Egypt Today.

The footage shows a young man being held down by masked men with a knife to his throat. One man chants a number of Muslim prayers in Arabic, mostly condemning Christianity. The man holding the knife to the Christian convert’s throat begins to cut, slowly severing the head amid cries of “Allahu Akbar” (“god is great”).


The story continued by saying that the Egypt Today presenter was visibly distressed by the scenes. Then, referring to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Salafis, who together hold the majority of seats in the country’s parliament, he asked, “How are such people supposed to govern?”

“The footage of this brutal beheading is the latest alarming indication of the violent threat to religious freedom in the post-Arab Spring order,” said a Barnabas Fund spokesperson.

The spokesperson added: “Give thanks to God for our Tunisian brother’s life and his faith that would not waver, even unto death. Pray that his witness will touch the hearts of his killers and those who have seen the footage of his death and that they will turn to Christ.”

Somali comedian who poked fun at Islamists shot dead

Gunmen shot dead a well-known comedian known for poking fun at Al-Qaeda linked Shebab insurgents in the Somali capital Mogadishu, officials and colleagues said Wednesday.

Abdi Jeylani Malaq Marshale, in his late thirties or early forties, was killed late Tuesday, minutes after leaving Kulmiye radio station, where he worked as drama producer and performer.

"Two men shot and seriously injured Marshale... the comedian was later pronounced dead," said police lieutenant Mohamed Gaal, adding that "unfortunately the assailants escaped."

The shooting of Marshale, who also worked for the London-based Universal TV station and who reported having received death threats on several occasions, is the latest in a string of apparently targeted killings against media workers.

Colleagues mourned the loss of a man they called a leader of the war-torn nation's comedy scene. His shows have aired on Universal TV and are also available on YouTube.

"He had not done anything wrong to anybody, as far as we are concerned, but they shot him in the head and shoulders," said Yusuf Keynan, a presenter at Kulmiye radio.

"This is a black day for the entire entertainment industry, he was a leader in Somali comedy and everybody liked his performance."

Marshale was known for airing dramas making fun of the extremist Shebab and for participating in youth advocacy programmes aimed at preventing young Somalis from joining the insurgents.

So far this year, at least one Somali journalist has been targeted and killed each month.

Ramallah to honor remains of Savoy Hotel terrorists
August 14, 2012

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- The Ramallah municipality approved the construction of a mausoleum to honor the Palestinian terrorists who killed 11 Israelis in the 1975 attack on Tel Aviv's Savoy Hotel.

The vote was reported last week by the PA daily newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida and translated into English by Palestinian Media Watch.

The eight terrorists, members of the Palestine Liberation Organization, traveled by boat from Lebanon to Tel Aviv, where they took over the Savoy Hotel. Seven of the terrorists were killed during an Israeli rescue attempt, during which eight hostages and three soldiers were killed.

The terrorists' remains were among the bodies of 91 Palestinian terrorists repatriated to the Palestinian Authority two months ago as an Israeli good-will gesture.
