Adherents of the Religion of Peace beat two Christians to death with shovels

Once again the adherents of the religion of peace have proven what a barbaric and medieval belief system they have…and want to force on the rest of the world.

Pakistani police have arrested at least 43 suspects in connection with Tuesday’s killing of a Christian couple accused of desecrating the Koran.

Reports say the couple were beaten to death by hundreds of locals who then burned their bodies in the brick kiln where they worked in Punjab province.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif called the murders “an unacceptable crime”.

Allegations of blasphemy are often used in Pakistan to settle personal scores or to target members of minorities.

Police say the suspects are due to appear in court on Wednesday in Lahore. The victims have been identified as Shehzad Masih and his wife Shama.

About 200 people in Lahore, mainly from the Christian community and human rights organisations, protested against the killings, which took place in the town of Kot Radha Kishan about 60km (40 miles) to the south-west.

They held signs saying “Christian carnage in the name of blasphemy should be stopped” and “the government has failed to give protection to minorities”, BBC Urdu’s Shumaila Jaffrey reports from Lahore.

Union leader Farooq Tariq told the BBC that the dispute was actually over money.

“The owner of the brick kiln gave it a religious colour, and they locked up the Christian woman Shama for two days, then attacked her with shovels, then tortured her husband and threw them in the brick kiln.

“It’s the worst misuse of religion,” he said.

In a statement, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said “a responsible state cannot tolerate mob rule and public lynching with impunity”.

“The Pakistani state has to act proactively to protect its minorities from violence and injustice.”

Moderate Islam?

When you hear the description ‘ Moderate Islam ‘ what image does that evoke for you? Do you associate Moderate Islam with Sharia law?

What about with cross dressing?

A Malaysian court on Friday gave transgender Muslims the right to cross-dress in a landmark decision overturning an Islamic sharia law ban that could trigger similar challenges.

Muslim-majority Malaysia represents itself as the global face of moderate Islam, but at home it has experienced a gradual Islamisation that makes minority groups worry their rights could lose out in a clash between sharia law and the constitution.

Several cases challenging Malaysia’s religious law in civil courts have been quashed in recent years, despite guarantees in the constitution on the freedom of expression, religion and gender equality.

On Friday, the Court of Appeal said the law against cross dressing by Muslim men contravened the country’s constitution and did not take account of male Muslims affected by gender identity disorder.

The law and its punishments were “degrading, oppressive and inhuman“, the three judges added.

Rights group Human Rights Watch has listed Malaysia as one of the worst countries in which to be a transgender person, due to systematic abuses by religious authorities and police.

Muslims trying to reform Islam from within are silenced by the left

After reading this I have had to revise my opinion on followers of Islam. Clearly there are those who want to reform it and ironically it is the West and the left who are preventing them from doing so. I still do not support an ideology dreamed up by a Pedophile but anyone that wants to try to drag it kicking and screaming out of the dark ages must have my support. A shark is still a shark and I don’t want to get into the water with it but anyone who wants to try to put a muzzle on it or try to teach it to be a vegetarian has my respect.

Why is criticism of Islam forbidden?

There is apparently no amount of mass murder, no number of innocents tortured or women raped, no amount of female degradation, no number of people enslaved, no number of Christians expelled from or murdered in the Middle East, no amount of Nazi-like Jew-hatred in its societies, no number of beheadings or even crucifixions, and no amount of terror that allows criticism of Islam.

And why is this?

A major Egyptian writer, Aly Salem, who has written 22 plays and 15 books, gave the answer in the Wall Street Journal this week.

His answer: The left.

“Many of my fellow Muslims are trying to reform Islam from within. Yet our voices are smothered in the West by Islamist apologists and their well-meaning but unwitting allies on the left. For instance, if you try to draw attention to the stark correlation between the rise of Islamic religiosity and regressive attitudes toward women, you’re labeled an Islamophobe.

“In America, other contemporary ideologies are routinely and openly debated in classrooms, newspapers, on talk shows and in living rooms. But Americans make an exception for Islamism. Criticism of the religion — even in abstraction — is conflated with bigotry toward Muslims. There is no public discourse, much less an ideological response, to Islamism, in academia or on Capitol Hill. …

My own experience as a Muslim in New York bears this out. Socially progressive, self-proclaimed liberals, who would denounce even the slightest injustice committed against women or minorities in America, are appalled when I express a similar criticism about my own community. …

“This is delusional thinking. Even as the world witnesses the barbarity of beheadings, habitual stoning and severe subjugation of women and minorities in the Muslim world, politicians and academics lecture that Islam is a ‘religion of peace.’ ”

Still from the film, The Stoning of Soraya, which was based on a true story.

Coincidentally, on the same day this article appeared, I had an hour-long dialogue on my radio show with another Muslim who made the identical point: that the left prevents honest discussion of Islam. Dr. Zuhdi Jasser is not only a Muslim, but a believing and practicing one. Despite fatwas issued calling for his death, this courageous Muslim continues to work to fundamentally transform his religion. (It is worth recalling President Barack Obama’s famous pledge right before the 2008 election to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” If a Muslim wishes to fundamentally transform Islam, he is labeled an “Islamophobe,” but if an American wishes to fundamentally transform America, he is not considered an America-phobe; he is merely another Democrat.)

Jasser is a medical doctor who practices in Arizona. He is a Navy veteran who reminds people that America embodies better values than any Muslim country. He wants Muslims and Islam to adopt American political, social and moral values. He wants, in a nutshell, a Muslim Reformation.

Yet, aside from Fox News and talk radio, both of them conservative media, one rarely encounters Jasser on national radio or television. Instead the mainstream — that is, liberal — media feature Muslim spokesmen from organizations such as CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations), apologists for Islam and Islamists.

None of this is about bigotry against Muslims. There are hundreds of millions of non-Islamist Muslims (an Islamist is a Muslim who seeks to impose Shariah on others), including many “cultural” or secular Muslims. And individual Muslims are risking their lives every day to provide the intelligence needed to forestall terror attacks in America and elsewhere.

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?

Charlie's Angels

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.

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 »

Anti-Muslim backlash not yet felt in New Zealand

Religion of Peace_gif

The fallout from radical Islam extremists is taking its toll on Kiwi Muslims who are being targeted on social media.

Social media backlash against Kiwi Muslims has increased over the past three months as a direct result of Australia’s largest “counter-terrorism” raids in Sydney and Brisbane and the horrific ISIS beheadings.

President of the Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand Inc, Dr Anwar Ghani said Kiwi Muslims are keeping silent on social media due to the comments being made.

Our moderators regularly have to block and delete hateful messages from people with pro-Islam viewpoints.  Not because of their views, but because of the way they are expressed.  The same thing happened with pro-Hamas readers losing the plot. Read more »

Standing up to ISIS, Muslim scholars make a stand

Muslim scholars have challenged the rantings of ISIS, probably marking them for execution should ISIS gain more control.

Nonetheless at last some Islamic moderates are speaking out.

VICE reports:

More than a hundred Muslim scholars and leaders from around the world released an open letter addressed to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Wednesday, telling the self-proclaimed caliph, in no uncertain terms, that the group’s use of Islamic scripture is illegitimate and perverse.

The document, which was issued in Arabic and English on the website Letter to Baghdadi and is embedded below, begins with a list of practices employed by the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) that its authors say are explicitly forbidden by Islam. They include torture, slavery, forced conversions, the denial of rights for women and children, and the killing of innocents.

The letter emphasizes that Baghdadi’s claims to a caliphate spanning eastern Syria and western Iraq are void.   Read more »

Does God Exist?

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread ;)….

Watching the nightly news with events happening daily in places like Syria & the Gaza strip, you’d almost be forgiven for thinking there is no God. How could any just and fair God allow such misery heaped upon misery to continue for years, in a situation that seems near on impossible to “fix”

For all the tyrant that was Saddam Hussain, he at least kept some semblance of order in the country, keeping the lights on and as inefficient and terrible as “public services” went, at least it was considerably better than what Iraq faces today. Does swift, brutal action on a few justify the safety/longevity for the many? The many would say yes, the few would say no… and both would be correct from their own stand point. Read more »
