1. Part of fundamentally transforming America is controlling what you eat and what you do in your leisure time, presumably when you aren’t at the mosque.
In her affidavit filed with the court, Ms. Ishaq wrote that through research, she came to the conclusion that wearing a niqab was “mandatory to my faith” and “integral to the modesty that a Muslim woman must show.” (Only a small minority of Muslim women wear niqabs in Canada.)
(I find that paragraph very revealing. Nonetheless the government of Canada is using the wrong argument. The correct one is that it is or should be illegal to wear a disguise in a government building or while undergoing any sort of identification or certification process. It makes exactly no difference if that disguise is a burka or a rubber Nixon mask)
In the latest propaganda video from Islamic State, hostages are paraded in cages through the packed streets of Iraq to cheers and jeers.
But in a cruel twist, the orange jumpsuit-clad prisoners are interviewed by their captors – ahead of their presumably grim fate.
The nine-minute video allegedly shows 21 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, who are paraded through the crowded streets of the Iraqi province of Kirkuk, before being seemingly marched to their deaths
(And somehow mysteriously American weapons found their way to these guys again)
4. Full interview with Taqyyia artist, Omar Shahin.
The Jewish community in Berlin sends to their approximately 10,000 members a monthly magazine entitled “Jewish Berlin”.
This newsletter is sent by post. Up until now it was placed in the mailbox directly, with only an address label. Starting this month, it is in a plain envelope. You pull it out of the mailbox and do not know what’s inside.
CARACAS, Venezuela — The abrupt arrest of the mayor of Caracas on accusations that he had plotted an American-backed overthrow of the government threatened to plunge Venezuela into new political convulsions on Friday, as his supporters rallied in the capital and pockets of protest erupted elsewhere.
The arrest of the mayor, Antonio Ledezma, on Thursday evening by intelligence agents who fired weapons in the air, was viewed by the opposition as the kidnapping of a political rival to President Nicolás Maduro.
Mr. Ledezma’s backers called it another assault on democracy in Venezuela, the oil-endowed nation that has been reeling from a severe economic decline under the watch of an increasingly unpopular president.
7. In this interview with Anjem Choudery, he seems to have managed to get the station anchor, interviewer to wear some sort of cloth on her head, perhaps as a condition of his being allowed to do dawa (islamic proselytization) on her show? Anyone know more about that?
