  2. SHOCKING footage: Muslim dad tied 13 year-old burka clad daughter to back of moving van

    There is little difference between the ropes of the van, the ropes of the burka, or the ropes of the ideology. Under Islam, “Lightly punish the woman…”

    Why shouldn’t he do as he pleases with his chattel?

    Powerless as dictated by the religion of misogyny. And it’s what the left wants for our daughters. Sharia Sarsour and her running dogs in the “feminist” movement.

    The money quote: The girl’s older brother told Turkish news outlet Andalou that his sister “enjoyed” it. And if she doesn’t say she “enjoyed” it, they’ll kill for sure.

  3. Libya announces state of emergency in Tripoli

    The capital has seen an escalation in violence between warring militias

    Libya announced on Sunday a state of emergency in and around the capital Tripoli, amid escalating violence between warring militias.

    An estimated 39 people, including civilians, have been killed and 96 wounded in the ongoing clashes.

    The government in a statement called on rival militias to stop the fighting and abide by the UN-brokered ceasefire.

    On Friday the only operational airport in Tripoli was forced to suspend all flights following an escalation in violence.

    The spokesman for the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Stephane Dujarric, condemned the clashes, “in particular, the use by armed groups of indiscriminate shelling leading to the death and injury of civilians, including children.”

    In a statement the UN reminded all parties that the indiscriminate use of force is a violation of international humanitarian and human rights law and urged “all parties to grant humanitarian relief for those in need, particularly those who are trapped by the fighting.”

    Thousands of migrants are among those left isolated and without access to food because of the clashes.

    The UN refugee agency said it moved about 300 refugees and migrants out of a detention centre in Ain Zara, one of the focal points for conflict.

    The UN-backed government in Tripoli tried to bring about a ceasefire and instructed two of its most senior military commanders to mediate between the militias.

    Maj Gen Osama Juwaili, the western zone commander, said: “All of the fighting forces must return to the headquarters they held before the clashes.”

    The fighting pits pro-government militias against a brigade known as the Seventh, or the Kani, and allied forces led by Salah Badi, a militia leader who was blamed for leading the destruction of Tripoli in 2014. He has seemingly returned from his base in Turkey.

  4. reuters – Teen from New Mexico compound says he was trained for jihad: FBI

    TAOS, N.M. (Reuters) – A 13-year-old boy who was part of group taken into custody at a squalid New Mexico compound last month has told FBI agents his mother’s boyfriend was training him to conduct “jihad” against non-believers, according to federal court documents.

    The boy was among 11 children and five adults living at the compound in Taos County when it was raided on Aug. 3 by local sheriff’s deputies who discovered a cache of firearms and the children living without food or clean water. The dead body of a three-year-old boy was found buried at the site later.

    They initially faced state charges, then on Friday, the five adults including a Haitian woman described as the group’s leader, 35-year-old Jany Leveille, were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and accused of conspiracy and firearms offenses.

    In an affidavit filed in support of a criminal complaint, an FBI special agent wrote that Leveille’s 13-year-old son told investigators that his mother’s boyfriend, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, 40, wanted to “get an army together” and train them for jihad.

    The boy told agents that Ibn Wahhaj trained him and another of Leveille’s teenage sons in firearms and military techniques, including rapid reloads and hand-to-hand combat, and told them jihad meant killing non-believers on behalf of Allah, according to the affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in New Mexico.

    The 13-year-old also told the FBI that his mother believed she received messages from God, and that he watched her and Ibn Wahhaj perform supposed “exorcism” rituals over the three-year-old boy, including one during which the boy choked and his heart stopped, according to the special agent’s affidavit.

    The teenager said his mother and others at the compound told him not to talk to anyone about the three-year-old ever being at the compound because they would “all go to jail.”

    Defense lawyers have said that the five adults were exercising their constitutional rights to practice their religion and own firearms, and that the group is being discriminated against because they are black and Muslim. The defense attorneys could not immediately be reached for comment on Saturday.

    The five defendants came under FBI surveillance in May after Leveille wrote a letter to Ibn Wahhaj’s brother asking him to join them and become a “martyr,” state prosecutors have said.

    They are due to appear in court in Albuquerque on Tuesday.

  5. Campus discourages Sept. 11 memorial citing ‘bias’ against Muslims

    Administrators at Ripon College in Wisconsin have ruled that a Sept. 11 memorial cannot take place on campus because it may offend Muslim students.

    The private school cited bias reports that were filed during last year’s Sept. 11 memorial project, a project that was a part of Young America’s Foundation’s iconic patriotism initiative which takes place across the country on campuses every year.

    The school’s Bias Protocol Board said the project creates an “environment” where “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out and/or harassed.” As a result, Ripon students will not be allowed to hang flyers as part of their vigil to remember the victims of Sept. 11.

  6. Two Prosecutors No Longer with Special Counsel Mueller’s Office

    Two prosecutors tasked with investigating allegations of possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election have left the Office of the Special Counsel.

    Brian Richardson and Ryan Dickey, two “relatively junior,” members of Robert Mueller’s team, are no longer working directly for Mueller, according to the Justice Department. In a statement to CNN, special counsel spokesperson Peter Carr affirmed both prosecutors did not exit the probe due to misconduct or perceived political bias, but refused to provide further details surrounding their departures.

    “Richardson had been among Mueller’s attorneys at Dutch lawyer Alex Van Der Zwaan’s sentencing in April. Richardson had joined Mueller’s office directly — whereas some lawyers moved over on detail from other parts of the Justice Department — after he finished a clerkship for Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer,” CNN reports.

    “About 400 detainees escaped after a riot on Sunday at a prison in the southern suburbs of the Libyan capital Tripoli, theatre of a week of deadly battles, police said.

    “The detainees were able to force open the doors and leave” as fighting between rival militias raged near the prison of Ain Zara, police said in a statement, without specifying what crimes the escapees had committed.

    Guards were unable to prevent the prisoners from escaping as they feared for their own lives, the statement said.

    A police official contacted by AFP was unable to provide further details.

    Most detainees at the prison have been convicted of common crimes or were supporters of former leader Muammar Gaddafi found guilty of killings during the uprising that toppled his government in 2011..”

    “The number of closed murder cases involving a “non-German” suspect rose by 33 percent in 2017, according to authorities. Riots in Chemnitz have fueled a debate about the link between foreign nationals and murder.
