Bomb in south Lebanon restaurant injures five

Muslim debate:

Five employees slightly injured, one still in hospital; several bomb attacks on Tyre shops selling alcohol

Five people were injured and a building was damaged when a bomb exploded in a restaurant in the south Lebanon coastal town of Tyre early on Monday, a Lebanese security source said.

There has been a spate of bombings in majority-Muslim Tyre in the last few months of clubs, shops and restaurants that sell alcohol, whose consumption is forbidden by Islam, and several restaurants have stopped serving alcohol as a result.

‘Gay people should get the death penalty’: Five Muslim men on trial for stirring up hatred after ‘handing out homophobic leaflets near mosque’

…and some people still insist that ‘multiculturalism’ is not an oxymeron.

From The Daily Mail:

  • One leaflet called The Death Penalty? showed image of mannequin hanging from a noose and said buggery led to hell, court hears
  • Jury told the ‘horrible’ leaflets were designed to stir up ‘hatred and hostility against homosexual people’
  • Prosecution of the group is first of its kind since new laws were passed

A group of Muslim men handed a leaflet out to the public that called for homosexuals to be ‘punished’ and given the death sentence, a court has heard.

The five men gave out the pamphlet, called The Death Penalty?, which showed an image of a mannequin hanging from a noose and said buggery was a great sin leading to hell, the court wast told.

It also said that it used to be punished by hanging and that people practising and allowing homosexuality would suffer, the court was told.

Ihjaz Ali, 42, Mehboob Hussain, 45, Umar Javed, 38, Razwan Javed, 27, and Kabir Ahmed, 28, are alleged to have handed out the document outside and near the Jamia Mosque in Derby, in July 2010.

 

They are also alleged to have put it through people’s letterboxes in the neighbourhood.

 

All five men are accused of stirring up hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation in the first prosecution of its kind since legislation came into force in March 2010.

 

Opening the prosecution’s case at Derby Crown Court today, where the five men are on trial after denying all charges, prosecutor Bobbie Cheema said the case was an example of a hate crime.

 

She told the jury of seven men and five women: ‘The essence of this case will come down to this – an allegation of a hate crime, that these five defendants were part of a small group of men who distributed horrible, threatening literature, with quotations from religious sources and with pictures on them, which were designed to stir up hatred and hostility against homosexual people.’

 

Miss Cheema showed the jury a series of three leaflets the men are said to have handed out, which included The Death Penalty? leaflet, and told them they would hear from witnesses who received them.

BARRY RUBIN’S COLUMN AT PAJAMAS MEDIA BANNED FROM UK GOVERNMENT OFFICES FOR ‘HATE SPEECH’

This is the article by Rubin that got him banned, which was posted here just after it was published online on the 26th of Dec. 2011. I recommend everyone reading this to publish this post with the link and to spread it far and wide. So someone within the UK governmental bureaucracy is a major Muslim Brotherhood supporter and is ramming stupid decisions like this through.

But guess what, it’ll boomerang on them, with yet more people (yes, even those with the UK government and defense departments and the military) coming into contact with Barry Rubin’s excellent analysis of ME affairs. Just wait and see. KGS

Goodbye Democracy: My Political Analysis is Banned By A European Government As “Hate Speech”

January 4, 2012 by Barry Rubin

I have just been informed that my PJ article, “Egypt: As Grim Islamists March Toward Power, The Naïve Dance in Tahrir Square” has been barred on sites used by officials of a European government–hint, they speak English there and it is the birthplace of modern democracy and free speech–on the grounds that this article is “hate speech.” What this means is that if you work for any institution that is part of this government–including the Foreign or Defense ministries–you cannot read this PJ Media column on your computer that’s part of such a server.

The message reads: Access denied — reason given : hate speech.

My reader asks sarcastically if complaining about this action would constitute a “thought crime” on his part.

This is only the first time I’ve been informed of this and perhaps it has been happening for months or even years. Perhaps it is done by some program that picks out “key words” like having the words “Islam” and “bad” in the same 1000 word article? The funny thing is that in 35 years of my writing on these issues no one has ever before cited anything I have ever written–even in a distorted manner–of being in such a category. Oh, well, there was that time when I quoted a U.S. official as saying that Arafat paced the floor of his cabin at Camp David in 2000 like a “caged animal” and then was accused by a retired diplomat of dehumanizing the Palestinian leader. That’s about it.

Yet even rejecting this kind of nonsense when applied to contemporary writing on the Middle East or things connected to Islam, this specific article is so ridiculously distant from such a claim as to be even more ridiculous. (Take a look if you wish by clicking on the link, above.) Indeed, my article doesn’t even deal with Islam as a religion or anything that could be construed even by a raving maniac radical leftist as hateful or offensive.

I cannot even figure out who I am supposedly telling people to “hate.” Is it “hate speech” to argue anything other than that the Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate pro-democratic group? Why isn’t the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Hizballah, and other such groups being banned for “hate speech” given their open statements advocating genocide against Jews?

Well, Western democracies have finally accepted censorship based on the clever lie that they are only protecting people from racism and those who want to incite violence and murder.  The door that this is opened has now made possible what liberals and democrats have warned against for more than a century–even though people claiming such positions are responsible for this–giving authorities to block and ban political views that they don’t like.

Court orders Google and Facebook to remove all anti Islamic content.

Somehow I doubt that Islamic teachings of hate against Christians, Jews, Atheists, zoroastrians, ‘wrong’ flavors of Muslims etc. will be effected by this.

Your Jewish News:

Social websites including Google and Facebook have been ordered by an Indian court to remove all ‘anti-religious’ and ‘anti-social’ content within six weeks.
On Saturday a Delhi Court ordered 22 social networking sites, including Yahoo and Microsoft, to wipe the objectionable and defamatory contents and file compliance reports by February 6, 2012.
Additional Civil Judge Mukesh Kumar passed the order on a suit filed by Mufti Aijaz Arshad Qasmi seeking to restrain the websites from circulating objectionable and defamatory contents.

Qasmi had objected to a number of images on the websites which he complained would cause ‘irreparable loss and injury to the people who are offended by them’.
He argued that some of the images defamed Hindu gods, Prophet Mohammed and other religious figures, India Today website reported.
The order will raise serious questions about how users’ posts and opinions will be edited, censorship and freedom of expression.

On December 22 Judge Kumar had issued summonses to the social networking sites, demanding they remove photographs, videos or texts that might offend religious sentiments, the Hindustan Times website reported.

The order comes a day after a criminal court issued summonses to the sites for facing trial for allegedly webcasting objectionable contents.

Reopen your spas! Maldives president in dramatic U-turn just days after Islamists forced him to ban centres at luxury resorts

The Daily Mail:

By Julian Gavaghan

Last updated at 5:01 PM on 4th January 2012

The president of the Maldives today ordered the country’s resorts to reopen their spas just days after they were shut following Islamic protests.

Mohammed Nasheed relented on his Saturday decree and instead asked the Supreme Court to decide whether the luxury treatment centres are legal or not.

The Indian Ocean islands are a paradise holiday destination renowned for its pristine white sand beaches, turquoise waters and high-end luxury resorts that often cost $1,000 a night.

The order to close the Muslim nation’s luxury spas, health centres and massage parlours threatened to sever a vital lifetime to its tourism-dependent economy.

Mr Nasheed made his first decision following a mass protest on December 23 calling for a halt to ‘anti-Islamic activities’.

TOP THREE HOTELS TO ‘LOSE THEIR LUSTRE’

One & Only Reethi Rah

This chic resort located on one of the biggest islands in the North Male Atoll is still top dog in the Maldives. It offers the height of luxury and privacy for its guests and attracts a jet-set crowd for whom money is no object.

Cost: Reethi Rah is home to 130 luxurious private beach and water villas. Prices start at £959 per room per night in January.

Spa: The spa is one of the highlights of the resort. It features crystal steam rooms and ice fountains and signature treatments include a volcanic hot stone massage and an exfoliating scrub that promises a sun-kissed glow.

Soneva Gili

The stunning wooden villas at this popular eco resort will bring out the Robinson Crusoe in you – they’re all built over water and have direct access to the resort’s lagoon. Plus, everything is open to the elements and the villas have all been built using only natural fibres.

Cost: Soneva Gili offers just 45 villas. Each has its own private water garden and sun deck and cost from £685 per night in January.

Spa: The resort’s Six Senses Spa boasts glass floor-panels and an extensive a la carte treatment menu. Treatments range from a 90-minute coconut body scrub to an ‘Asian Fusion Journey’ which lasts nearly six hours and includes three different massages.

Huvafen Fushi

Set within its very own lagoon, this resort boasts pristine white beaches, friendly staff and laid-back minimalism.

Cost: Each of the over-water bungalows at the resort features a private pool and prices start from £1160 per bungalow per night in January.

Spa: The cutting-edge underwater spa rooms are a major selling point for the resort and certainly have the wow factor. Tropical fish float past large windows as you indulge in treatments such as Unite Me Crystal Ritual, which involves an application of a sand and lime poultice and a coconut oil massage.

Other tourist activities that have caused offense are the eating of pork and drinking of alcohol.

Importation of alcohol is already severely prohibited in the Maldives and Islamists are now calling for a complete ban. Continue Reading →

  • 65 youths have been sent to a police school in Indonesia’s Aceh province to receive mental and spiritual guidance for ten days
  • Only then are they are allowed to return home

By Graham Smith

Last updated at 10:06 PM on 14th December 2011

Dozens of young punk rock fans have had their heads shaved and body piercings confiscated after police in Indonesia said they were a threat to Islamic values.

The 59 male and six female music lovers were also stripped of dog-collar necklaces and chains and then thrown in pools of water for ‘spiritual’ cleansing, police chief Iskandar Hasan said.

After replacing their ‘disgusting’ clothes, he handed each a toothbrush and barked ‘use it’.

The 65 youths were then sent to a police school to receive mental and spiritual guidance for ten days. Only then are they are allowed to return home.

It was the latest effort by authorities to promote strict moral values in Aceh, the only province in the secular but predominantly Muslim nation of 240million people to have imposed Islamic laws.

Adultery is punishable by stoning to death; homosexuals have been thrown in jail or lashed in public with canes; women are told that wearing headscarves is a must, but tight trousers are banned.

 

Punk rockers have complained for months about harassment, but Saturday’s round-up was by far the most dramatic treatment they have yet been subjected to.

Baton-wielding police broke up the concert, scattering young music lovers. Continue Reading →

FINNS MP CONVICTED OF HATE SPEECH FOR TELLING TRUTH ON ISLAM IN FINLAND

Truth telling, in spite of the overwhelming amount of evidence to the contrary (history of former Christian lands in the ME and Maghreb) is considered illegal in Finland. Factual truths are not a defense, just ask Jussi Halla-aho. KGS

H/T: Vasarahammer

The part that was considered illegal by Kouvola Court of Appeals (hovioikeus):

US:”Unfortunately, with rampant Muslim immigration to Finland, there will also be an increase in genuine real racism, which will target especially the Jews, but also the native population and other ethnic groups. And on top of that, discrimination, unbearable arrogance and rude behavior, anger, women’s oppression, child mutilation (TT:FGM), sexual misconduct, persecution of minorities, rioting, flag burning, disturbances, drugs, looting, rape crimes, pedophilia, polygamy, child marriages, shame violence, ritual slaughter, whippings, stonings, and others utterly disgusting and fully twisted traditions and other phenomena. Eventually, even suicide bombings and terrorism. That is, if we do not dance exactly according to their tune.”

Member of Parliament, James Hirvisaari fined for incitement against ethnic group

HS: What True Finns MP James Hirvisaari published in a blog post on 4 February 2010 at the UusiSuomi online newspaper service, has been given a verdict.

Kouvola Court of Appeal has convicted the True Finns MP, James Hirvisaari, with a fine for ethnic agitation. According to the court what he wrote in his blog was offensive to Muslims. The fine was equal to 1425 euros.

Päijät-Häme district court previously dismissed the indictment against Hirvisaari, because it didn’t deem the writings as disparaging. The district court’s view was that a politician has the right to criticize immigration policy.

The Court of Appeal decided the matter differently. According to it Hirvisaari’s web writings was sweeping and discriminatory, and specified a group of people as criminals.

The Court of Appeal took the view that the characterizing of an ethnic group as criminal isn’t within the limits of free speech as generalization and a provocation.

True Finns Party parliamentary group chairman, Pirkko Ruohonen-Lerner believes that they’ll take a position on the case, when the decision is final. Although this might still go to the Supreme Court.

Concealing support for the English Defence League (EDL)

An interesting snippet of testimony was given today by a witness at the Leveson enquiry into press standards and ethics, which is currently being held in the High Court in London.

It is common knowledge that within the British press a “gentleman’s agreement” has persisted over coverage of certain issues: specifically, accurate reportage of the exponential growth of opposition to immigration and Islam in Europe, and the emergence of non-racist parties to address it.

This agreement originates from a 2007 conference held by the NUJ (National Union of Journalists) – which produced infamous “Guidelines” – and at which it was decided to place a Cordon de Silence around the entirety of these matters, only drip-feeding out information whenever absolutely necessary.

But the evidence blurted out by the former Daily Star journalist Richard Peppitt is a surprising eye-opener, especially given recent events and the apparent overwhelming response to them online, that would seem to suggest that the multicultural destruction of Britain was something enthusiastically backed by most people in the country.

FRONT PAGE MAGAZINE PRESENTS: THE POLITICAL PERSECUTION OF ELISABETH SABADITSCH-WOLFF

 

In living color!

The buffoonery of the Austrian government doesn’t involve just its massive trade dealings with the rogue Iranian regime, it also consists of systematically persecuting its own citizens daring to speak up about Islam. Do you think that they’re connected in any way? KGS

The Political Persecution of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

On February 15, 2011, the Austrian Counterjihad activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was convicted of “hate speech” in a Vienna courtroom for what she said in a private seminar about Muhammad and Islam.

The original charge was “incitement to hatred”. On the second day of her trial, the judge at her own discretion added a second charge, “denigration of religious beliefs of a legally recognized religion.” Elisabeth was acquitted of the first charge, but convicted of the second. She was sentenced to pay a fine of €480. Her case is currently being appealed to Austria’s highest court. If the verdict is upheld, and she refuses to pay the fine, she will spend two months in jail.

How could this happen in a modern European democratic state which recognizes the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and enshrines the right to free speech in its Constitution?

NO CHRISTMAS STORY FOR DANISH KINDERGARTEN THIS YEAR, STAFF DOESN’T WANT TO UPSET MUSLIMS

Grinch dhimmis strike again

A dear friend of the Tundra Tabloids mentioned the following concerning this story, in the FPN.DK. We were both aghast at the ease in which portions of society, in the willingness to be tolerant, would so brazenly discriminate against members of its own society. KGS

NOTE: Remember folks, rejection of Islam, just the saying no to it, is tantamount to charges of discriminationa and bigotry….islamophobia.

Chipping away at the host society’s foundation, one little piece at a time, until that society finally accepts that it has no right to be different to the immigrants to whom it has extended a helping hand out of sheer naivity and well-intentioned but ultimately self-destructive sincerity.

I just don’t get it. We’re Jewish – and Zionist – and proud of both. When our kids were at school and the autumn term came to an end, there was the traditional end of term celebration in the church. It is merely TRADITION, not forced conversion, for heaven’s sake. Our kids survived, and survived very well. They are still Jewish, very much so. We have chosen to live in a nominally Christian country, where people celebrate things like Easter, Christmas, Midsummer, even Crayfish Premiere. Jews don’t eat crayfish – should we insist that the nation change its tradition to accommodate us? Absurd beyond belief.

The staff has decided not to participate in the traditional Christmas service in Lillerød Church because a high proportion of children in the institution are Muslims.

“The reason is that we have several Muslim families who do not want their children to go to church. And so we decided to say “no thanks” because we also have our everyday work,” said Susan Lund Andersen, the headmaster of “Ørnevang” to Jyllands Posten.

The decision to drop the Christmas church service causes great annoyance at the vicar of Lillerød Church who believe that the Christmas worship service is an important part of the Danish Christmas tradition.

Would amend the program
“I was upset and annoyed that they cancelled. They called and asked if I could make the program so they could participate. I always end the ceremony with the bright blessing of the children, and they wanted me to refrain from that for the sake of the children’s religion,” says Carsten Mulnæs who is the vicar.

He believes that “Ørnevang” – the institution – has taken a wrong decision because now all the kids are unable to attend the Christmas service.

“I believe that children should have the opportunity, because it is a Danish tradition. I know that the institution has a large representation of Muslim children, but I know that not all families have a problem with going to church. I think a majority of the kids will be cheated, “says Carsten Mulnæs.

It affects integration

The organization Muslims in Dialogue is sorry that the neglect impacts the children who would like to go to church.

“I think it’s a shame if it goes beyond the children who actually wanted to go to church. But on the other hand, I do not think one should force anyone to participate, who do not want to, whatever religion they belong to, “says Vice President Nihad Hodzic.

The act made Carsten Mulnæs write a reader posts in today’s edition of Frederiksborg County newspaper, where he emphasizes the church’s role in integration.

“You can not integrate into nothing. But that is exactly what we risk as with that kindergarten: Nothing. It is not respect for Muslims, but disrespect for our own history.”

The service is not crucial
The argument that the Christmas worship service is important for integration has not the great impact among Muslims in Dialogue.

“I understand that the priest gets upset that the institution refuse to go to his church, but I do not believe that it actually works against integration. Personally I have never participated in a Christmas sermon, and I do not think that it is essential for integration, “said Nihad Hodzic.
