Is it ok to be a ‘Moderate’ pedophile?

childmarriage

One of the main arguments people use when faced with the horrifying and barbaric acts committed by followers of Islam ( such as setting an Eleven year old girl on fire after raping her for wearing lipstick ) is to say that yes that is terrible but that was a fundamentalist Muslim or that was a militant Muslim who did that. Most Muslims are Moderate and are not like that.

Let’s see how this this common defence stacks up when we use the word pedophile in conjunction with the word moderate.Does it sound like a reasonable argument?

Moderate pedophiles say that the actions of fundamentalist and militant pedophiles here and overseas do not represent their beliefs. They point to the differences between them. The fundamentalist pedophiles go too far in their relationships with young children says the head of the Auckland Pedophile Organisation. We love children and honour them. We do not force them into a marriage nor do we rape them or kidnap them like the militant pedophiles. Our children willingly enter into loving relationships with our members as they have been brought up to understand that pedophilia is normal in our culture and is what is expected of them.We treat them well and when we discipline them for not following our rules we do not use the methods that the fundamentalist and militant pedophiles use. Stoning and setting children on fire is not what pedophilia is all about. It is about a loving sexual relationship with a child.We want New Zealanders to be tolerant of our differences.We want our culture to be respected. We want our own schools so that our children will not be exposed to the different belief system of the western world.We want Pedo law imposed in the areas of Auckland that are now mainly populated by our members. We should not be subjected to Western laws that do not recognise our different belief system.

We caution the New Zealand Government to think twice before joining other countries in their attacks on fundamentalist pedophiles overseas as we cannot guarantee that this will not result in violence occurring in New Zealand by Moderate pedophiles here who feel that any attack on fundamentalist pedophiles is an attack also on their Moderate beliefs.

**NOTE: the above is an example of Satire. There is no official Auckland Pedophile Organisation.

Islam as an ideology is fundamentally wrong. Women do not have equal rights. They are controlled and are considered chattels. Pedophilia is not condemned by Islam as the founder of their religion was a pedophile. It is an ideology that has at its very centre a belief that Islam must dominate the world and convert all to their belief system. It is a belief system that sees Muslims as being superior to the infidels which are you and I.

The word moderate is a smoke screen. You cannot be a moderate vegetarian you either only eat vegetables or you don’t ( in which case you are not a vegetarian. )You cannot be a moderate hetrosexual, you either are attracted to the opposite sex or you aren’t. How you dress it up is irrelevant as your core belief is what you are. At the very core of Islam is the belief that women are to be controlled, that women are chattels,that infidels are inferior,that marriage to a Pre-pubescent child is ok and that the world must be converted to and dominated by Islam.

We may find a head scarf more palatable to our sensibilities than a Burqa but the belief system behind the rational for forcing a woman to wear it is exactly the same. It is not about modesty it is about control.There is nothing moderate about that.

 

 

It’s not the first 99 years that are worrying

More on the drama out in Avondale

New Zealand Muslim Association president Firoz Patel said there had been ongoing troubles within the Muslim community in Avondale.

Patel said he did not know who was responsible for the weekend’s fire but there had been fighting within different factions at the mosque, which had led to “disturbances”.

The mosque made headlines earlier this year when its former Imam Sheikh Abu Abdullah was banned from the centre after allegedly teaching extreme Islam and encouraging youth to fight overseas.

He denied the allegations.

Mosque administrator Haider Lone was beaten after trespassing Abdullah and the mosque was subsequently closed.

One of Abdullah’s sons, Abdullah Hamam, was charged with threatening to kill members of the New Zealand Muslim Association after the family was trespassed. He pleaded not guilty.

Another follower, Imran Patel, was also charged with threatening to kill, and had his passport cancelled.

Firoz Patel said the centre was forced to build fences and install CCTV cameras after a number of incidents, including people slashing tyres of community members during prayers.

So far, none of these problems appear to have come from outside their own community.   Read more »

Answer: a few centimeters

The question:  What is the difference between a Muslim woman wearing a hijab and an Exclusive Breatheren woman wearing a head scarf?

Amy Cronin, misses the point:

“Are you hiding bombs in your skirts?” a stranger yelled from a car window as 12-year-old Radiya Ali walked down a Hamilton street in the mid-2000s. She had arrived to New Zealand as a refugee from Yemen, four years after 9/11 – an innocent among hicks and alarmists who saw young girls wearing the hijab and thought it stood for terrorist.

“Did you steal those curtains you wear?” people hollered at her as they passed. “Why are you wearing sheets on your head?”

Salma Salat came from Kenya 17 years ago, when she was 4.

“I don’t remember it, but my mum found it tough adjusting and raising kids in a time when people were shouting things out from the streets.”

In the days post 9/11, a man approached Salma as she was walking with her sister. She remembers him yelling at them, “terrorists”. She was 7 and didn’t know what it meant.

Radiya and Salma are 21 now, and they are friends. They tell these stories with wide eyes, in the can you believe it way adults recall their traumas from childhood. You won’t find gentler, or stronger, young women. They are innocent in many ways, but they have seen.

Yes, well.  Hamilton.  The culturally sensitive ground zero of the North Island.  And yes, as people, we aren’t too flash at coping with what makes us different.

So that sets the scene for this article, which is utlimately about the hijab. Read more »

Sharia law…seems legit.

Ever heard the Old Testament phrase of an eye for an eye?

Christianity

You have heard that it was said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”. But I say to you, do not resist an evildoer. If anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
This saying of Jesus is generally interpreted as criticism of the Old Testament teaching, and often taken as implying that “an eye for an eye” encourages excessive vengeance rather than an attempt to limit it.

Islam

The Qur’an mentions the “eye for an eye” concept as being ordained for the Children of Israel.The principle of Lex talionis in Islam is Qasas (قصاص) “O you who have believed, prescribed for you is legal retribution (Qasas) for those murdered – the free for the free, the slave for the slave, and the female for the female. But whoever overlooks from his brother anything, then there should be a suitable follow-up and payment to him with good conduct. This is an alleviation from your Lord and a mercy. But whoever transgresses after that will have a painful punishment.” Shi’ite countries that use Islamic Sharia law apply the “eye for an eye” rule literally.

A court in Iran has ruled that a man who blinded a woman with acid after she spurned his marriage proposals will also be blinded with acid.

The ruling was reported in Iranian newspapers on Thursday.

The punishment is legal under the Islamic Sharia principle of qias, equivalence or analogy, which allows retribution for violent crimes.

The court also ordered the attacker, 27-year-old Majid Movahedi, to pay compensation to the victim.

The acid attack took place in 2004. The victim, Ameneh Bahrami, went to Spain for surgery to reconstruct her face but efforts to restore her sight failed.

The ruling was a response to her plea to the court in the Iranian capital Tehran for retribution.

You may be interested to know that in the end the victim did not get her retribution.

Buckle up your Burqa,the morality police are coming!

The Morality Police, ISIS style.

A brigade of women enforce Sharia law in the Islamic State stronghold of Raqqa. (Reuters) Alternative title: The Morality Police, ISIS style.

We were obviously worried over nothing as obviously this is feminism in action.

The Burqa is no longer a symbol of male and idealogical oppression. It is a symbol of powerful, take charge women who do not shirk from the difficult job of oppressing other women for not obeying Sharia law!

Should we call them the Burqa brigade or is this the ISIS version of Charlies Angels?

What do you think?

First they came for our dogs and I said nothing because I didn’t have a dog.
Then they came for our cats and I said nothing because I didn’t like cats.
Then they came for our education system and I said nothing because I didn’t have children.
Then they imposed Sharia Law and I said nothing because I was a woman and my place was under a Burqa.

Support Terrorists? Find yourself liable for their attacks

A US court has found Arab Bank guilty of aiding and abetting terrorism for helping launder Hamas money and helping to finance acts of terror.

A U.S. jury on Monday found Arab Bank Plc liable for providing material support to Hamas and said it must compensate victims of two dozen attacks attributed to the Islamic militant group in Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Jurors needed less than two days of deliberations to reach their verdict after a six-week trial in Brooklyn federal court, which lawyers described as the first terrorism financing civil case to reach trial in the United States.

A trial on damages will be held later. Similar lawsuits are pending in New York against Bank of China Ltd, which is accused of providing services to Palestine Islamic Jihad, and Credit Lyonnais SA, which is accused of aiding Hamas. Those banks have denied the respective allegations.

Nearly 300 Americans who were either victims or related to victims of attacks linked to Hamas had sued Arab Bank in 2004.

They accused the Jordanian bank of violating the Anti-Terrorism Act, a law that lets victims of U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations such as Hamas seek damages.

“It has been a long haul,” said plaintiff Maida Averbach, 76, who said her son was paralyzed from the neck down in a 2003 suicide bombing and died in 2010 from complications. “Unfortunately my Steve isn’t here.” Averbach spoke to reporters by phone.

Arab Bank said it would appeal. In a statement, the bank said the verdict “comes as no surprise” after a series of what it considered legally incorrect court rulings that kept it from mounting a proper defense, and effectively “put Hamas on trial.”

The bank also said the verdict exposes banks such as itself to “enormous liability” for providing routine banking services.

Shand Stephens, a lawyer for Arab Bank, predicted that the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals “is going to reverse this.”

Mark Werbner, a lawyer for some of the plaintiffs, said the verdict sends a message that “when a bank opens its doors to terrorists, they’re going to be held accountable.”

Another example of the Religion of Peace and its lack of tolerance

Asia Bibi did nothing more than drink some water from a well, the problem for her was that she was a christian and the muslim women objected because she had now tainted the water…and then the problems really started, Asia Bibi told them that she thought that Mohammed wouldn’t agree with them. She is now in jail in Pakistan awaiting execution after being sentenced to death for blasphemy, and Pakistan’s High Court has upheld the sentence.

The religion of peace and tolerance? Yeah, nah.

A high court in Pakistan on Thursday upheld the death sentence for Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five who in 2010 became the first Pakistani woman to be sentenced to death for “blasphemy,” after Muslim fellow laborers accused her of insulting Mohammed.

After the high court in the Punjab provincial capital Lahore dismissed Asia’s appeal, an organization that campaigns against Pakistan’s notorious laws accused the panel’s two judges of being swayed by about 25 Islamic clerics who it said were present in the courtroom “to apply pressure.”

The accusation was made by the Center for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS), an organization with branches in Pakistan and Britain that provides legal assistance to Christians accused under the blasphemy laws.

“I am very disappointed with today’s result and my thoughts and prayers are with Asia’s family,” said CLAAS-UK director Nasir Saeed. Read more »
