Their own worst enemy

I am probably going to be castigated over this post, but I am telling it as I see it.

I am normally a fairly tolerant person, in that I respect a person’s religious beliefs; given that I don’t subscribe to any (that is another story).

But I have always been dead set against the kidnappings,  stonings, hangings and frequency of executions in the name of Islam.

Christianity had these too, if you consider the book of Leviticus, but at least even the fundamentalists have thrown those out for what they are, barbaric.

But the adherents of Islam have not.

Why, does Islam want to remain in the stone age?

I admit to knowing but few Muslims, and the ones I have know have been decent people.

The spread of Islam

However, from what one reads in the news, one can’t help but think that Islam is nothing more than an excuse for blood-letting. That is not religion.

Fundamentalist Islam education is limited to the Koran

It appears that the world, in general, is tiring of all this. I read a report just yesterday that in England 59% of the voters would vote for candidates who promised to limit or deny Muslim immigration, against 33% who said the opposite. Now they are pretty weighted figures, and it doesn’t surprise me in the least.

I would imagine that the USA figures in such a poll would be even more weighted given that Muslims were blamed for 9/11, a view I do not share.

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah

Now we have this controversy over some damned film that offends Mohammad. And all the stink in the Middle East has broken loose, especially with the deaths of the Americans in Libya. Not only that but some Lebanese religious leader, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, has exacerbated the situation by calling for more violence.

This is not the action of a religious leader, be he Muslim, Christian or some little green man from Mars.

Inciting hostility like this can only serve to spread the violence and in doing so put the rest of the world even further off side than it is already.

I am not expecting to world of Islam to embrace America over this issue, but at least to take reprisals responsibly through the correct channels. I fully suspect that had the Islamic world taken appropriate action, then the western world would have been far more sympathetic as we have laws that prohibit religious wrongs; instead they have raised the hackles of the west.

Islam is only distancing itself further from the rest of the world through its fundamentalist violent nature.

DIShonour Killings

Canada ‘honour’ killings: Shafia family found guilty

The three members of the Shafia family convicted were sentenced to a minimum of 25 years in prison

Three members of an Afghanistan-born family in the Canadian city of Kingston have been found guilty of murdering three daughters and a first wife in a so-called “honour” killing.

The victims’ bodies were found in a car submerged in a canal in June 2009.

The girls’ father and brother and the father’s second wife will serve a minimum of 25 years in prison.

Prosecutors said the father was angered that his two eldest daughters wanted boyfriends, in defiance of his values.

Opinion:

Young Afghan woman mutilated by her husband for reportedly committing adultery - he killed his last wife

These so called ‘honour’ killings and mutilations are a disgrace to humanity and any religion.

These people went to Canada, this is not a Canadian custom, they obey Canadian laws. If they don’t like it, go somewhere that accepts that behaviour.

‘Honour’ killings are horrendous and I am in favour of the death penalty in these cases because they are premeditated murders with no mercy shown on the victim.

“Of all the evils spawned by the feudal society, honor killing is arguably the most heinous.”

Quote from: Viewpoint Read about the Pakistani plague.

“The young woman found in a drainage ditch near Daharki in Pakistan, ‘honour’ killed by her family as she gave birth to her second child, her nose, ears and lips chopped off before being axed to death, her first infant lying dead among her clothes, her newborn’s torso still in her womb, its head already emerging from her body … She was badly decomposed; the local police were asked to bury her. Women carried the three to a grave, but a Muslim cleric refused to say prayers for her because it was ‘irreligious’ to participate in the namaz-e-janaza prayers for ‘a cursed woman and her illegitimate children.’”

“I am hardly the first pundit to bemoan the lack of Western feminists who’ve shown any interest in this gendered genocide. Most are too busy denouncing the phallocentricity of free trade and unregistered guns to mourn the killing of 20,000 women every year for the crime of falling in love, having boyfriends, bearing children — which is to say, being human.”

Quotes from: National Post Read more about the Afghan horror.

Read here about more of this in the USA

20,000 women die like dogs because of this barbaric religious practice annully. The hardliners of these religions need to be brought screaming into the 21st century.

Lewisville High School students, Amina and Sarah, were found dead

In America today

A man on the run from police since his teenage daughters were found shot to death in a taxicab on New Year’s Day had threatened to hurt one of the girls for dating a non-Muslim boy, according to police documents.

But sadly even the death penalty will not deter the zealous, because they will consider it an ‘honour’ to die because they carried out their religious duty… stupid bastards!

Makes me sick!

Primitive Thinking Needs to Go

‘End of virginity’ if women drive, Saudi cleric warns

Saudi Arabia remains one of the only countries in the world to prevent women from driving

A report in Saudi Arabia has warned that if Saudi women were given the right to drive, it would spell the end of virginity in the country.

The report was prepared for Saudi Arabia’s legislative assembly, the Shura Council, by a well-known conservative academic.

Though there is no formal ban on women driving in Saudi Arabia, if they get behind the wheel, they can be arrested.

Saudi women have mounted several campaigns to try to overturn the ban.

Aside from the practical difficulties it creates, they say it is also illogical as in trying to keep them under family control and away from men, it actually puts them in daily contact with a male driver.

The issue has received huge international attention.

Some Saudi women feel it has attracted too much interest, obscuring other equally important issues.

As part of his careful reform process, King Abdullah has allowed suggestions to surface that the ban might be reviewed.

This has angered the conservative religious elite – a key power base for any Saudi ruler.

Now, one of their number – well-known academic Kamal Subhi – has presented a new report to the country’s legislative assembly, the Shura.

The aim was to get it to drop plans to reconsider the ban.

The report contains graphic warnings that letting women drive would increase prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce.

A Saudi woman who has campaigned for women drivers told the BBC that the report was completely mad.

She said the head of the Shura had assured women campaigners that he was still open to hearing the case for lifting the ban.

Opinion:

It doesn’t matter whether the religion is Christian, Islam, Jewish it is becoming more and more evident that they are the cause of much of the world’s problems.

It’s all about ‘control!’

In the case of any religion , it is ensuring the patriarchal system isn’t eroded. It is all about the subjugation of women.

As if we need more of this crap

Al-Shabab radio gives weapons prize to Somali children

An al-Shabab official urged the children to use their guns to defend Islam

A radio station run by Somalia’s al-Shabab Islamist group has awarded weapons to children who won a Koran-reciting competition.

Andulus radio, based near Mogadishu, gave the group which won first prize in the Ramadan contest an AK-47 rifle and the equivalent of $700 (£450).

The second prize-winners received an AK-47 and $500, while the third prize was two hand grenades and $400.

Al-Shabab, linked to al-Qaeda, controls much of southern and central Somalia.

It recently withdrew from the capital, Mogadishu, where the UN-backed government is in charge.

Four children, aged 10-17, were chosen to represent each district in the competition held during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ended in August.

“Children should use one hand for education and the other for a gun to defend Islam,” senior al-Shabab official Mukhtar Robow told the prize-giving ceremony in Elasha, 20km (12 miles) from Mogadishu.

The children were also given religious books.

The BBC’s Mohamed Moalimu in Mogadishu says this is the third year the contest has been held.

In previous years, when the competition was organised in the southern port of Kismayo, the first prize included an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade launcher).
