Violence

Face of the day

Today’s face of the day is Alicia Gali, a beautiful Australian woman who accepted a Managerial position in Dubai.

What happened to her was terrible. Sharia law in Muslim countries is applied to Christians and all other infidels. Believe it or not Alicia was imprisoned for the crime of being violently gang raped in the hotel where she worked by fellow employees who had spiked her drink making her unconscious. What makes this story even worse is that her employers trapped her in the country by holding on to her passport and the Australian Embassy did not help her leave either. Unable to leave the country, she was forced by the extreme pain from her broken ribs to go to the local hospital. From there her fate was sealed as they lied to her and in Arabic wrote a ‘ confession of her crimes ‘ that they made her sign.

NZ Journalist receives threats of violence. (Reveal: it isn’t me)

Social media was named by someone with a sick sense of humour.  The number of direct and indirect death threats I have received over the years for something I published is beyond count.  I report them to the Police of course, but it’s basically just background noise to me.

Unfortunately, this sort of thing is now spilling over to other people in the media

A Taranaki newspaper columnist says she has received threats of sexual violence from leaders in the agricultural community.

Police are investigating a complaint by Rachel Stewart, who says she got threats online and by email. Read more »

Patron of Shakti Helen Clark

Patron of Shakti
Helen Clark

Today’s face of the day is Helen Clark who is the Patron of Shakti. I may not share Helen Clark’s politics but I share her support of Shakti. More people need to know of its existence.

A woman close to my family came to New Zealand from Syria many years ago to an arranged marriage. She had never met her groom and neither had her family. She arrived in New Zealand unaware that she had rights and there were people who would protect her. If Shakti had been around then and if she had been aware of it she would have been able to escape instead of being trapped by the fact that she could not speak English and knew no one. Shakti are specially for women, children and families of Asian, African and Middle Eastern origin.

I did not know of Shakti’s existence until I watched an Australian show called Four Corners about Forced marriage. One of the stories was about a group of sisters rescued from forced marriage in New Zealand by their school’s guidance counselor and Shakti. Their story will move you.

Why we are afraid of Islam ( even the liberal left )

NOTE: This article was written more than a week ago BEFORE the massacre at Charlie Hebdo. It is part of my ongoing series about Islam.

Below are quotes I have taken from the video. This guy is fantastic. Every History teacher worth their salt should educate themselves by reading and watching this guy. We have not been taught the true history of Islam. He uses cold hard facts, maps and graphs to reveal a shameful secret that we do not want to acknowledge.
Watch this video to get started on your knowledge journey and find out why we in the West are like an abused child. It is long but it is worth it. You will never look at Islam the same way after watching this lecture.

Honest Australian Islamic Leaders: You can’t ban terrorism without banning Islam

Islamic Protest in Sydney

I am very glad that the Australian Islamic leaders have been so upfront about the reality of the Qur’an (Koran.) It repeatedly in many different parts advocates killing us.

‘Us’ is anyone who is not a ‘ proper ‘ Muslim and yes, countless numbers of Muslims are killed by other Muslims for not being Islamic enough. True Islam is vile and brutal and has been around for 1400 years. If banning Terrorism means banning Islam what is the problem? I struggle to see a problem. We only want to remove from our society what is a clear and present danger to it and those who want to kill us clearly fit the bill.If the Islamic leaders themselves admit that the heart of their ideology the Qur’an (Koran) , is terrorism of the Infidel, ( us ) then let’s thank them for their honesty while packing their bags and sending them on a one way journey back to the hell holes that they came from.

Do we really want to let them turn our countries into clones of the Islamic countries that they fled?

Note they do not offer to remove all the guidelines for terrorism from the Qur’an (Koran), they just want us to ignore it. Can you see anything wrong with this picture? The Qur’an is not a religious book like the bible. That is the mistake most people make. It is actually a Political handbook written by a single author, Muhammad. It outlines a system of government, a legal system ( Sharia law ) and outlines how to wage war.

Does domestic violence really rise during the holiday season?

It is claimed the world over that domestic violence rises during the holiday season, but is it true.

VICE reports that perhaps it isn’t:

As they often do, local media outlets in several states warned of a spike in domestic violence this holiday season. The phenomenon is not confined to the United States. Last January, for instance, London’s Metropolitan Police commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe told the Daily Mail that an increase in domestic violence injuries in the last quarter of 2013 “could be linked to Christmas,” elaborating, “You can imagine that when people are at home more there is more opportunity for domestic situations.”

Yet despite many-a-tale about the dark side of the celebratory season marking the end of each year, interviews with advocates focused on reducing domestic violence suggest the idea that people are more likely to abuse their loved ones during the holidays is a myth.

Actually, the opposite may be true.

According to Norma Mazzei, Operations Director at the National Domestic Violence Hotline (NDVH), “We have data that supports the opposite. We do not have an increase in calls during holidays—in fact, sometimes it’s a little bit decreased.”

Mazzei and others close to the issue share a general consensus that domestic violence does not increase nationally over the holidays, even if it might in a handful of places at specific times.

Time to arm the cops?

judith-collins-minister-of-gun-ownership1

Judith Collins thinks it is time to arm the cops.

The sooks disagree, even arts, lifestyle, fitness and travel blogger, David Farrar, disagrees. He thinks it will lead to an arms race amongst the criminal fraternity.

I don’t know what planet he lives on but the criminals are already armed.  Every time there is a drugs bust there are numerous firearms confiscated.

Another issue for police going into violent homes is how to keep themselves safe.

Police will often say that the most dangerous situations for them are family violence calls.

Every kitchen has knives, some homes have guns.

They don’t know what the layout of the home is, how many people are there, what reception they’ll get.

These days front-line police have access to tasers and better access to firearms. As we’ve seen lately, going into a hospital can lead to being shot at.

Even though police have access to firearms in their car lockboxes, I’m concerned that they too often feel that they can’t take them.   Read more »

Rodney Hide thinks the leftwing live in ‘perpetual anger and utter miserableness’

Rodney Hide explains in the NBR about his belief that the left wing live in ‘perpetual anger and utter miserableness’.

One of the reasons I am not a Lefty is their perpetual anger and utter miserableness. It renders them utterly unattractive. Theirs is not a club I wish to join.

If you doubt my characterisation take a look at the left-wing blogs The Standard or The Daily Blog. Or a school staffroom. Or Question Time, Morning Report or any newspaper.

Or compare John Key to Helen Clark.

It’s extraordinary, is it not? I don’t know an exception. There’s next to no difference in Ms Clark’s and Mr Key’s policies. In fact, there’s no difference. But there’s a world of difference in outlook and temperament because of their politics.

It’s been a lifelong puzzle to me. Why are Left Wingers so miserable and angry about, well, everything?

Why indeed?

We saw one of the nastiest election campaigns ever, with grotesque sign vandalism, criminal acts of hacking and demonisation of anyone opposed to the leftwing parties.

They even had the temerity to suggest it was they who were pure and the right who are nasty.

Central to the Left’s ideology is the belief that politicians have the power to make the world a better place. That’s how they think.

Now consider how that plays out in their heads.

That their lives aren’t better must make them bitter and twisted.  Their life is a constant proof that politicians aren’t doing what they are meant to or what they promised. Their miserable lot, or that of the fellow down the road, or the world in general, is the fault of politicians who, accordingly, must be uncaring, idiotic or crooked and, perhaps, all three. If politicians were genuine, the world would be a better place.

It never occurs to me that a politician would or could fix a thing. I am just happy they leave me mostly alone. I wish they would do better at it but I know how to keep myself out of their way.
