Muslim woman won’t have her case heard unless she removes her head scarf

Judge Eliana Marengo was said to have told Rania El-Alloul that the courtroom in Montreal is a secular place and she was not suitably dressed.

‘Hats and sunglasses for example, are not allowed. And I don’t see why scarves on the head would be either,’ it was claimed she said in a recording of proceedings.

El-Allouk had attended court in a bid to have her car returned after it was seized by police.

Her son was reported to have been driving the vehicle with a suspended licence when he was stopped and it was confiscated by Quebec’s automobile insurance board.

The car was due to be kept for a month, but El-Allouk wanted the court to return it sooner.

After the hearing she was said to have felt scared and ‘not Canadian anymore,’ CBC reported.

Her case was said to have been adjourned indefinitely.

The public display of religious symbols has been hotly debated in the predominantly French-speaking Canadian province in recent years.

In 2013, the pro-independence Parti Quebecois (PQ) government moved to ban public servants from wearing Muslim head coverings such as hijabs, Jewish skullcaps or other obvious religious symbols.

A gang member can’t wear gang clothing to court.  A motorcyclist has to take a helmet off before entering a bank.  Is it reasonable for a judge to demand a Muslim woman removes her headscarf?

Discuss.

Kim Dotcom: no money, no luck

I never believed in Karma, preferring to dish out the repercussions myself whenever appropriate, but over the last few years I’ve become more philosophical about things.  Karma is certainly working its magic on Kim Dotcom right now.

Not only has he run out of ways to ‘encourage’ people out of money, he’s also run out of ways to lay his hands on enough of it to be of use to him.  His missus is embarrassing him in front of the world by giving her teenage toy-boy a Mercedes while he claims to be on 2 minute noodles and water.

Every time he goes to court, things aren’t going well for him either.  As was the case yesterday.

Bad news continues to flow for Kim Dotcom after a ruling from a United States court barred him from fighting the seizure of his assets.

Dotcom’s United States lawyer, Ira Rothken, said the Eastern District of Virginia Federal Court had found his client was not entitled to contest the forfeiture of his assets because he was a “fugitive” facing extradition.

This was despite Dotcom lawfully fighting the extradition under a treaty signed by both the United States and New Zealand.

“We think this is not offensive to just Kim Dotcom’s rights, but the rights of all Kiwis, Rothken said.

I love when lawyers have run out of proper legal argument, they have to resort to a legal decision being “offensive”.

Similarly, trying to gain sympathy from fellow Kiwis shows that Rothken is totally misreading the mood of New Zealanders when it comes to Kim Dotcom.

How are Kim’s US legal team being paid?   Surely they’re not so offended on Kim’s behalf as to work for free?

Those Bitcoins are both running out as well as worth a lot less than they were a year ago, and he needs some of those for a rainy day.

Nothing is going Kim’s way right now.  The only solution he’s got left is if his friends Greenwald and Snowdon organise him asylum.  And then he can use his emergency stash to pay for a private flight out.

Good news for Christians, especially the beheaded ones

# I am Charlie

# I am Charlie

Truth can hurt but Truth must not be silenced.

My ongoing collections of images under the # I am Charlie headline will upset some people. They will include graphic photos of actual events, political cartoons and Internet memes / posters. They all have one thing in common. They are an attempt to influence your thinking about Islam. Yes you can call them propaganda or offensive. Propaganda can be about telling lies or putting a slant on the truth or just be provocative in order to get you to think about an issue. You decide what these are, individual image by individual image. That is what is wonderful about living in a free, democratic society here in New Zealand. We can do that without fear of violent reprisals ( at least for now )

Mohammed Emwazi AKA Jihadi John

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about ‘Jihadi John’, the world’s most wanted man, is just how ordinary he actually is.

‘Jihadi John’ – the barbaric executioner of Western hostages held in Syria – has been unmasked as a computer studies graduate who grew up in a leafy and affluent suburb of west London.

His real name is Mohammed Emwazi, the eldest of six children, who took pride in his appearance, wore nice clothes, and appears – on the face of it at least – to have been a diligent student. He doesn’t even have a criminal record.

Nevertheless over the course of six years following his graduation, Emwazi undertook a journey that transformed him from benign teenager to the most demonic of killers, a blood-thirsty murderer who beheaded hostages, including Britons David Haines and Alan Henning, broadcast to the world in propaganda videos for the Islamic State.

Toby Manhire wants us to follow in Denmark and Sweden’s footsteps.

Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Toby Manhire is such a person. Rather than do what Churchill did when he joined England in the fight against Nazism he thinks that a more gutsy decision would be to increase our immigration, thereby bringing into our democratic country the very ideology that John Key wants us to oppose.

Sweden and Denmark increased their immigration and look what happened.

Woe to anyone in Sweden who dissents from the orthodox view that welcoming large numbers of indigent peoples from such countries as Iraq, Syria, and Somalia is anything but a fine and noble idea. Even to argue that permitting about 1 percent of the existing population to emigrate annually from an alien civilization renders one politically, socially, and even legally beyond the pale. (I know a journalist threatened with arrest for mild dissent on this issue.) Stating that there exists a Swedish culture worth preserving meets with puzzlement. And yet, the realities of immigration are apparent for all to see: welfare dependency, violent bigotry against Christians and Jews, and a wide range of social pathologies from unemployment to politically motivated rape. Accordingly, ever-increasing numbers of Swedes find themselves — despite known hazards — opting out of the consensus and worrying about their country’s cultural suicide.

All this is part, say critics, of a decade-long transformation in Denmark’s approach to immigration and integration, under pressure from the populist Danish People’s party, the DPP… Denmark’s Muslim population are the party’s particular focus. There are many Muslims, it says, who are unwilling to integrate and hostile to “Danish values” such as free speech.

Israel punches above its weight in so many ways

There are those who build and contribute to mankind and there are those who destroy.

ISIS's contibution to mankind. Destruction. Islam has a long 1400 year history of burning and destroying the libraries and museums of the countries it invades.

ISIS’s contribution to mankind.
Destruction.

Islam has a long 1400 year history of burning and destroying the libraries and museums of the countries it invades. Above is but one recent example. Islam dominates and destroys. One of the things that has always stuck in my mind is what happened when Israel withdrew and handed over land to the Palestinians. The land had been developed and had wonderful technology and buildings that could benefit the new occupiers yet the first thing they did when they took ownership was to tear down and destroy everything because it had been created by Israel.

Israel on the other hand makes lemonade when life gives it lemons. They work out how to farm the desert. They don’t just benefit themselves they create technologies that can benefit the world. The ReWalk is but one example.

Imagine giving a paraplegic back the ability to walk again.

Imagine that the man who created the technology is a quadriplegic.

Now imagine that the scientist who designed  this amazing technology is from Israel, the country that does so much with so little.

Invented by the Israeli entrepreneur, Dr. Amit Goffer, who became a quadriplegic in 1998, and manufactured by ARGO Medical Technologies, ReWalkâ„¢
