AN IRANIAN immigrant sentenced to eight years’ jail for raping a teenage girl said in his home country western women were “portrayed as whores”, a court heard yesterday.
Amir Mohebbifar, 27, pleaded guilty to the aggravated sexual assault of the 19-year-old woman in an brutal early morning attack on Sydney’s Anzac Bridge on January 16 last year.
(Oh! Oh OK I guess its OK then. Multiculti and all that. Carry on!)
Turning the page on last year’s grandiose and dishonest claims is what Obama does with each new address. Each year terrorism has been permanently defeated and the economy has recovered; Al Qaeda is on the run, unemployed dentists from Poughkeepsie are learning to install solar panels and illegal aliens from Los Angeles are teaching sex ed to kindergarteners.
And then next year he comes out to announce once again that the country has recovered from the crisis that he had already announced that it had recovered from last year.
And everyone applauds.
With the worsening security situation in Yemen’s capital of Sanaa, the U.S. military has moved two Navy amphibious ships into the Red Sea to assist with any potential evacuation of U.S. embassy personnel should the State Department order its personnel to leave the country, Pentagon officials said today.
The U.S. embassy there remains open as of now.
A State Department spokesperson told ABC News that officials are “continuing to closely monitor developments in Yemen and will adjust the embassy’s security posture response in accordance to the situation on the ground.”
The West’s movement towards the truth is remarkably slow. We drag ourselves towards it painfully, inch by inch, after each bloody Islamist assault.
In France, Britain, Germany, America and nearly every other country in the world it remains government policy to say that any and all attacks carried out in the name of Mohammed have ‘nothing to do with Islam’. It was said by George W. Bush after 9/11, Tony Blair after 7/7 and Tony Abbott after the Sydney attack last month. It is what David Cameron said after two British extremists cut off the head of Drummer Lee Rigby in London, when ‘Jihadi John’ cut off the head of aid worker Alan Henning in the ‘Islamic State’ and when Islamic extremists attacked a Kenyan mall, separated the Muslims from the Christians and shot the latter in the head. And, of course, it is what President François Hollande said after the massacre of journalists and Jews in Paris last week.
All these leaders are wrong. In private, they and their senior advisers often concede that they are telling a lie. The most sympathetic explanation is that they are telling a ‘noble lie’, provoked by a fear that we — the general public — are a lynch mob in waiting.
5. Back in the 1990s a team of Finnish comedians had a far far better grip on what Islam was all about than any of the leaders of the Western world does today.
Nisman was scheduled to testify to a parliamentary committee the next day and was expected to accuse the government of president Cristina Fernandez Kirchner of swapping increased trade with Iran for a promise not to prosecute the Iranian officials who plotted the attack.
Nisman’s assassination is tentatively being considered as a suicide, with the jurist felled by a single bullet wound to the head and clutching the gun that killed him. But there are indications that it may have been something much more sinister.
Thank you M., Dan F. Don C., Yucki, Tundra T., Shabnam, and all who sent in material and there really is quite a bit. Shortly, bits of a press conference given by an alliance of people who met in paris to stage a march against terrorism which was banned by France will be uploaded. The first one should be ready in minutes.
