Excerpt:

Prominent Sunni Muslim leader Kanthapuram Aboobacker Musliyar on Saturday said gender equality was against Islam and culture.

Addressing a Sunni students’ camp in Kozhikode, the orthodox Sunni leader said that gender equality is impractical.

“Where man-woman equality has taken place. It is not going to happen. Gender equality is against Islam, society and human kindness,” he said.


Apparently this Mohammadden Cleric has a track record for antediluvian views supporting Paedophilia etc:

The influential Muslim leader has a history of making controversial observations vis-à-vis women issues and their role in society. He had recently come out against women reservation in local governing bodies. He had advocated for marriage of minor girls to ensure morality and discipline in society.

Mohammadden religious instruction school aka Madrassah / Madrassa / Madrasa run by Sunni Mohammadden Cleric Kanthapuram Aboobacker Musliyar who a couple of days back claimed “Gender equality is against Islam, society and human kindness”, now stands accused of paedophilic homosexual abuse. Mohammadden Malayalam film director Ali Akbar said he was sexually exploited by an ustad (teacher) during his time in a Musliyar run Madrasa:

AFP via Yahoo News reports that Mohammadden Group Ansar Dine or translated “Defenders Of The Faith”, claimed responsibility for attack on United Nations Peacekeeper base in Mali that killed 3 on Saturday November 28th, 2015:

Jihadist group Ansar Dine claims deadly attack on UN base in Mali

Elsewhere in Africa the carnage wrought by Mohammadden Groups continues un-abated. Citing UN Peackeeping General Jean Baillaud, BBC reports that Uganda based Mohammadden Terrorists group, the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), was responsible for Sunday November 30th attack of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) town of Eringeti killing among others one UN peacekeeper:

Going by the 2 cases, Mohammadden Groups do not consider UN Peacekeepers “innocent” but rather very Wajib ul Qatal aka Bull Cutlet material.

They’re Mutilating Little Girls’ Breasts in Cameroon to ‘Protect Them’ From Boko Haram

IKOM, Nigeria — When Grace Tchami started showing signs of puberty at age 9, her mother, hoping to protect her, began to torture her. At about 7 o’clock every morning, her mother would take one of the heavy stone pestles used for grinding food and heat it burning hot over a charcoal fire, then press it on Grace’s breasts, attempting to flatten them.In a small, bamboo-roofed kitchen behind the house, Grace remembers, Mama performed this procedure day after day for three months. Grace’s older brother would hold her legs so she couldn’t run away. And then, still reeling from the ordeal, Grace would be sent along to elementary school.I met Grace, who is now 16, in this southern Nigerian town where she had traveled across the Cameroonian border to buy fabric for her mother’s sewing business. She said she is permanently scarred and still suffers from the trauma. She said her mother told her the goal was to make her less desirable to boys, and thus to kill any chance of her getting pregnant early.And Grace is not alone. The tradition of “breast ironing” has gone on for years in Cameroon, and appears to be spreading among parents who hope to keep their daughters out of the hands of Boko Haram’s brutal jihadists.

Islam, Jihad, and our Ignorance

“Ignorance kills. In war, ignorance brings defeat, especially for those who are sworn to support and defend us,” writes Stephen Coughlin in his latest book Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad. [b]The refusal to account for the doctrinal elements of Islam in our national security analyses constitutes the professional malpractice that Coughlin was alluding to as our threat doctrine has been reduced to strategic incomprehension and incoherence. In wake of the recent terrorist attacks in Paris that took the lives of 130 and injured 350 others, Coughlin ominously warned back in April that this strategic incoherence in the War on Terror “will increasingly be measured by news stories that reveal senior leaders’ inability to answer basic questions about the nature of the enemy and his environment. It will also manifest itself in official responses to terrorist attacks that become progressively less reality-based.” Yet, as Americans, Parisians, and virtually every citizen living within Western society grows more outraged by yet another failure of intelligence in stopping the latest jihadist attack, “those professionally and constitutionally tasked with keeping them safe continue to lack awareness, understanding, and even professional curiosity about the doctrines that drive the enemy to action,” notes Coughlin.

For our enemies, the implementation of Islamic law known as sharia is both the objective and the basis in which they routinely states their justification for attack. Our enemy openly declares that they are engaged in a global jihad as Islamic law serves as their doctrinal driver to commit murder in order to establish an “Islamic state”, or Caliphate, governed by Islamic law. Osama bin Laden stated the following in 2002:Muslims, and especially the learned among them, should spread Shari’a law to the world — that and nothing else. Not laws under the “umbrella of justice, morality, and rights” as understood by the masses. No, the Shari’a of Islam is the foundation. … In fact, Muslims are obligated to raid the lands of the infidels, occupy them, and exchange their system of governance for an Islamic system, barring any practice that contradicts Shari’a from being publicly voiced among the people, as was the case in the dawn of Islam. … They say that our Shari’a does not impose our particular beliefs upon others; this is a false assertion. For it is, in fact, part of our religion to impose our particular beliefs upon others. … Thus whoever refuses the principle of terror[ism] against the enemy also refuses the commandment of Allah the Exalted, the Most High, and His Shari’a.
“Jihad in the cause of Allah” is what the enemy claims it is doing, whether it be the now deceased leader of al-Qaeda or the current leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. To the exclusion of all other reasons, including “underlying causes” such as economic deprivation, “climate change”, or poverty, the root cause always traces back to Islam itself and the enemy doesn’t just make this claim. What the jihadis say they will do tracks exactly with what they do.

The concepts of jihad given expression by so called “extremists” can be found in the body of Islamic law as defined by recognized authorities and authoritative sources as the legal description has remained consistent across the 1400 year span that incorporates today’s recognized authorities. Defined as “warfare against non-muslims to establish the religion,” the rules of Islamic law pertaining to jihad have remained consistent regardless of whether it was defined by an eighth century Arab, a ninth century Uzebki, a 12th century Spaniard, a 14th century North African, or even a 20th century Arab, Pakistani, Indian, Malaysian or American. “All conformed to the idea that jihad does not end until the world has been made the dar al-Islam,” notes Coughlin, adding “because there is agreement among the scholars on the status of jihad, it belongs to the fixed inner sphere of Islamic law that can never be changed.“Yet, the requirement of jihad neither begins nor ends with the kinetic aspects of warfare. Coughlin notes that Islamic law divides the world into two states, dar al-Islam (the house of Islam and peace) and dar al-harb (the house of War, which is the world of the infidel and the region of perpetual warfare) with jihad being an unabrogable obligation for Muslims until the dar al-harb is eliminated and the people of the book ‘pay the jizya (tax) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued (Qur’an 9: 29).” Anyone who comes from the dar al-harb has the status under Islamic law of harbi (enemy). As a country not governed by Islamic law, the United States resides in the dar al-harb, therefore we Americans are harbi.To elaborate on this concept, Coughlin cites Majid Khadduri, a professor at John Hopkins University who wrote War and Peace in the Law of Islam (1955) and published his translation of the classic 8th-century treatise Shaybani’s Siyar (1966). The Siyar is among the oldest testaments on international relations and the law of war in Islamic law. Khadduri in War and Peace in the Law of Islam writes:It follows that the existence of a dar al-Harb is ultimately outlawed under the Islamic jural order; that the dar al-Islam is permanently under jihad obligation until the dar al-Harb is reduced to non-existence; and that any community accepting certain disabilities must submit to Islamic rule and reside in the dar al-Islam or be bound as clients to the Muslim community. The universality of Islam, in its all-embracing creed, is imposed on the believers as a continuous process of warfare, psychological and political if not strictly military.
It’s imperative to understand this concept for even when a fighting jihad is not underway, a “continuous process of warfare” is waged at the psychological and political levels.
Khadduri states this as a matter of doctrine— because the “dar al-harb is ultimately outlawed under the Islamic jural order; … the dar al-Islam is permanently under jihad obligation until the dar al-harb is reduced to non-existence.” It is from this context that those who believe, as our current adminstration repeatedly reminds us, that we are “not at war with Islam” can be refuted as Islam has and will continue to remain at war with us as a continuous process of psychological, political, and kinetic warfare.

Through this concept of Islamic warfare, a substantial effort is placed on the “preparation stage”, the object of which is to induce a collapse of faith in the cultural, political, and religious institutions underpinning the target. A very clear example of this doctrine is Pakistani Brigadier General S.K. Malik’s The Quranic Concept of War. As Coughlin explains, “In the Quranic Concept of War, Malik emphasized the importance of laying the groundwork for successful military operations. He explained this preparatory stage as a ‘dislocation of faith’ in the target nation’s sense of security and in the capability of its leaders to defend its territory. The inability of the target population’s leadership to protect its citizens in the face of a terror campaign signals the beginning of kinetic operations in earnest. At some point, dawah (issuing of summons) transitions to jihad.” Elaborating on the concept of dawah, Coughlin highlights that it is“often defined as the ‘invitation’ or ‘call to Islam,” the meaning and purpose of which is more extensive and closely associated with jihad.

The Quranic strategy comes into to play from the preparation stage, and aims at imposing a direct decision upon the enemy. Other things remaining the same, our preparation for war is the true index of our performance during war. We must aim at creating a wholesome respect for our Cause and our will and determination to attain it, in the minds of the enemies, well before facing them on the field of battle. So spirited, zealous, complete and thorough should be our preparation for war that we should enter upon the ‘war of muscles’ having already won the ‘war of will’. Only a strategy that aims at striking terror into the hearts of the enemies from the preparation stage can produce direct results and turn Liddell Hart’s dream into a reality. To instill terror into the hearts of the enemy is essential in the ultimate analysis to dislocate his faith. An invincible faith is immune to terror. A weak faith offers inroads to terror.In the early phases of dawah, one should expect to see an emphasis on penetration and subversion campaigns directed at cultural, political, media, and religious institutions. The refusal to understand the enemy’s doctrine, which tells him not to strike until he has assessed that we are already defeated in our own minds, lends credence to the notion of why we are so routinely caught of guard when a jihadist strikes. Judging by the fact that the FBI currently has nearly 1,000 ongoing ISIS probes in the United States with 82 individuals affiliated with ISIS having been interdicted by law enforcement since March of 2014, the enemy has assessed that the time has come to unleash kinetic attacks as we have already been defeated within our own minds.
In closing, since adherents to sharia and a strict interpretation of Islam have sworn to destroy us, it is their doctrine that we are required to know. Whether that doctrine is judged by us or this adminstration to be accurate with “genuine” Islam is wholly irrelevant. If it can be demonstrated, which it has been, that the enemy that attacks and kills Americans and seeks to subvert our Constitution refers to and relies on the implementation of sharia to guide and justify his actions, then that is all that matters in terms of the enemy threat doctrine U.S. civilian and military leaders must thoroughly understand and orient upon for the purpose of defeating such foes. .

Falijee wrote:Family of Muslim teen seeks $15m in clock incident
IRVING: Attorneys for a 14-year-old Muslim boy arrested after the homemade clock he took to his Dallas-area school was mistaken for a possible bomb said Monday he was publicly mistreated and deserves $15 million.
A law firm representing Ahmed Mohamed sent letters Monday demanding $10 million from the city of Irving and $5 million from the Irving Independent School District.
The letters also threaten lawsuits and seek written apologies.
From the safe haven of (Salafist) Emirate of Qatar. :mrgreen:
As indicated in the letters, the long term effects on Ahmed are incalculable. “ Meribeth Sloan, a spokeswoman for Irving said the city is reviewing its letter and has no comment.
The district didn't immediately return a message Monday.
The family accepted a foundation's offer to pay for Ahmed's education in Qatar and moved to the Persian Gulf country.
Education in Qatar probably includes doses and doses of Mailsi theology in Arabic !
Hollingsworth said Ahmed and his younger siblings have found schools in Qatar, but his older sisters, who are 17 and 18, have not.
Ahmed is very gratified by all of the support that he has received, but just like his siblings and his parents, he misses Texas. It is his home,” Hollingsworth said.
So there is an adjustment and /or alienation "problem", in "luxurious Qatar" ( no hot dogs!) but the door is still being kept open for possible re-migration; the US administration should make it difficult for them to "return to the Land Of The Free" :mrgreen:


The clock that was his so-called invention was nothing but a ready made clock that was taken apart and fitted into a box. To quote someone "It’s the equivalent of taking the plastic surround off of your TV and claiming you “made” a TV". So the question is, why did it spark 'panic'?

The reason is that - timebombs and counter based IEDs are made using the same technique. There is a PCB based clock that is disassembled and the alarm/speaker is replaced with an IED so that when the 'pre-set time is up' instead of the circuitry triggering an electrical bell or a 'multimedia speaker'; it triggers the IED.

So in other words, the contraption that Ahmed carried to the school as a timebomb without the bomb.

What was his intention behind this mischief??


As you know - my degree is in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. So, as someone with some appreciable expertise, I analyzed the "home made clock" that the kid in Irving was supposed to have "invented" and taken to school. First, it is NOT a simple alarm clock. It is a COUNTDOWN clock. Second -- the kid didn't home make or invent anything. He decomposed an already existing commercially available COUNTDOWN clock (as evidenced by the commercially manufactured Printed Circuit Board (PCB)) as shown in the picture of his device.

If the kid were to "home make" or "invent" a clock -- he would have used a breadboard (as I have added to the picture) wherein one inserts integrated circuits, wires, and capacitors, resistors, etc., to form the logic of such a device.

Image

So, question: why did the kid take apart an already existing COUNTDOWN clock and build it into a briefcase where only the LEDs were visible counting down time? What would happen at any airport, building, school, public sidewalk, if such a device were spotted?

Question: what is in the white bag in the suitcase? It serves no electronic purpose. Hmmmm.

Do you want anyone to bring a briefcase with COUNTDOWN clock embedded within it and setting the clock to countdown and go off during English class in your kids schools? Again, the only thing visible on the outside of the briefcase were the LEDs counting down time to 00:00.

I smell a dirty rat, a setup here, if there ever was one. I am appalled that the media is buying into the innocent "inventor" story. This is not about race or religion -- it is about someone purposefully taking a menacing device to school.

What if a kid were to take an upper from one AR-15 rifle, and a lower from another AR-15 rifle and put it together, then remove the firing pin and take it to school as a metal worker "inventor"? Why, anyone who knew anything about rifles could closely examine the metal object had no firing pin and would celebrate what a great inventor the kid was!!! NOT!!!! How many people at a school could closely examine the inside of this briefcase with a countdown clock visible on the outside counting down to 00:00 and make the call as to its purpose? Again, what is inside that white bag?

Please share this post so that we can inform the public of what the news media is failing to do.

We did not have to wait for long. Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the perpetrators of the San Bernardino attack that killed 14 turns out to be linked to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan via his parents who are from that Mohammadden Terrorism fomenting country.

New York Times citing Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Los Angeles :

One of the suspects, Syed Rizwan Farook, and his wife had a 6-month-old daughter, Mr. Ayloush said.

He said that Mr. Farook was born and raised in the United States and that his parents are from Pakistan.

US Police have released the second perpetrators name in the San Bernardino shooting that killed 14. That name is Tashfeen Malik who is believed to be either wife or fiancée of Pakistani heritage / descent Syed Rizwan Farook, who is the other perpetrator. The name Tashfeen Malik sounds to be from the Indian Sub-Continent and I will not be surprised she also turns out to be linked to the Mohammadden terrorist fomenting Islamic republic of Pakistan:

If I recall correctly, early after the shooting yesterday, eyewitness reports were that one of the San Bernardino shooters was a heavy-set man. Of course, I cannot find these reports today. My memory maybe at fault. But if I recall correctly, since the news-reports say that Syed Rizwan Farooq is tall and thin, and his wife, though we have no picture, is not likely to approximate what an American would see as a heavy-set man; even with body armor; I suspect there will be more to the story.

guys.... the Pakistani connection is revealed ........

While Mr. Farook is an American citizen, Mr. Bowdich said he had traveled abroad and that the couple came to the United States in July 2014 when they were not yet married. She is here on a K-1 visa on a Pakistani passport. Mr. Bowdich said he did not know all of the countries they visited but that Mr. Farook did go to Pakistan at one point.

Mr. Farook, a United States citizen, was born in Illinois to Pakistani immigrant parents. Family members said he had been a devout Sunni Muslim, and on a dating website several years ago, he listed Urdu as his mother tongue. He had gone to Saudi Arabia multiple times, including a 2013 trip for the annual hajj, the trip to Mecca that all Muslims are expected to complete at least once, federal officials said.

From the article:

science education fails to inculcate critical thinking in the way that the debates within arts teaching do.


What the ****** is wrong with these morons? First they start calling social studies as social 'sciences' and now they want us to believe that liberal arts study involves a greater degree of critical thinking??

WTF! If anything its the liberal art morons who lack in critical thinking for they fail to see fascism even when its right in front of them!

Bomb Attacks Target Hindu Gathering in North Bangladesh
December 5, 2015, 7 hours ago

DHAKA, Dec 5 (Reuters) – At least six people were injured, with three in a critical condition, after a series of bomb blasts on Saturday at a Hindu religious gathering in northern Bangladesh, a police official said.

The attack follows the shooting and wounding of an Italian doctor working in the same region last month, and the earlier murders of an Italian and a Japanese citizen in separate attacks claimed by Islamic State.

The latest incident occurred in Dinajpur district, 415 km (260 miles) north of the capital Dhaka when a series of bombs exploded as hundreds of devotees attended a religious ceremony known as “Rushmela”, Abdul Mazid, the officer in-charge of Kahalur police station, told Reuters.

The attack came after recent threats to the temple’s priest, urging him not to organise any religious gatherings, Mazid said.

Five people had been detained for interrogation, he said.

Bomb attacks on Hindu religious gatherings are rare in Muslim-majority Bangladesh.

The country has suffered a rising tide of Islamist violence over the past year. Four online critics of religious militancy have been hacked to death, among them a U.S. citizen of Bangladesh origin.

Lankan Muslim MPs Shout Down Tamil MP For Speaking On Shariah
By By P.K.Balachandran Published: 06th December 2015 03:35 PM

COLOMBO: Four Muslim Members of Parliament, including a cabinet Minister, shouted down Tamil National Alliance (TNA) MP M.A.Sumanthiran, when he mentioned the term “Shariah” while speaking in parliament on Friday on a Saudi Arabian court’s order to “stone to death” a Lankan women for committing adultery.

The 43 year old Lankan woman, a mother of three, was to be stoned to death in Riyadh on Friday but the sentence was not carried out because the lady had appealed against the order with the assistance of the Lankan government.

Sumanthiran, also a leading Supreme Court lawyer, said that laws regarding the mode of punishment in various countries should be looked at afresh, from the human rights angle. He mentioned stoning in Saudi Arabia, flogging in Singapore and the use of the electric chair in some states in the USA as examples of practices which need to be reviewed. He further said that countries cannot prevent people from across the world questioning laws which violate human rights and cannot use religion to stall intervention. He pointed out there has been international intervention in Sri Lanka to restore human rights in the island and Lanka has accepted it.

Sumanthiran said that stoning was a practice mentioned in the Old Testament but the practice was discontinued with the advent of Christianity. He recalled that when people wanted to stone a prostitute to death, Jesus Christ said: "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” No one did.

When the Tamil MP proceeded to ask if the Shariah law sanctions stoning to death, S.M.Marikkar, Rishad Bathiyudeen and two other Muslim MPs, shouted him down. Bathiyudeen insisted that Sumanthiran has no right to talk of Shariah law. Islam and Shariah law should not be dragged in when the entire House is engaged in saving the maid in question, Bathiyudeen argued. Sumanthiran’s contention that he had the right to speak on any religion so long as he is not offensive was rejected.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya’s pleas to the Muslim MPs to let Sumanthiran complete his speech fell on deaf ears. Even Minister Lakshman Kiriella’s assurance that anything hurtful to Islam could be expunged, failed to pacify the four Muslim MPs.

A defensive Sumanthiran said that he is not attacking Islam and that he is an avowed friend of the Muslims. In fact, only recently, he had incurred fellow Tamils’ wrath when he described the en masse expulsion of Muslims from North Lanka by the LTTE in 1990 as “ethnic cleansing.”

Later, speaking to Express Sumanthiran said that Bathiyudeen agreed that he is a friend of the Muslims but insisted that he could not speak on the Shariah.


However, the Muslim MP listened quietly when the Deputy Minister of Power, Ajith Perera, urged the government to ban unskilled Lankan women from seeking employment in countries like Saudi Arabia.

Ban Being Mulled

Meanwhile, Sunday Virakesari quoted the Minister of Foreign Employment, Thalatka Athukorale, as saying that President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe are discussing the possibility of putting a ban on Lankan women going to Saudi Arabia as maids.

In January 2003, another Lankan, 24 year old Rizana Nafeek, was beheaded in Saudi Arabia for the alleged murder of a baby. Rizana’s argument that a confession was forced on her, was not accepted by the court. An appeal for clemency made to the Saudi King by no less a person than the then Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa was ignored.

Shocking that religion of Mohammaddenism can hold a mother in such a thrall as to risk abandonment of a 6 month old baby by turning her into a force behind Mohammadden radicalisation knowing fully well that the course of action carried the risk of rendering the child an orphan, which is what happened.

X Posted from the STFUP thread with a hat tip to Chetak.

The wall Street Journal (WSJ) reports that between the two Mohammadden Terrorists involved in the San Bernardino killings in the US, the one with the closer links to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan by virtue not only of origin but of nationality and studying there was the driving force for Mohammadden radicalisation. That is the female component of the Pakistani origin duo, Tashfeen Malik.

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is certainly doing its “Fortress of Islam” bit by continuing fomenting Mohammadden Terrorism around the world:

San Bernardino Wife Believed to Be Driving Force to Radicalism : Husband apparently was curious, but not particularly driven on his own to support terror groups, officials say

ISIL’s new recruitment song in Mandarin is another way to enrage China

The Islamic State, already known for its savvy with English-language media, is now targeting its propaganda at Mandarin speakers, too.
The terrorist group, known as ISIL, released a song ostensibly trying to recruit Muslims in China. The lyrics are entirely in Mandarin, and the song is typical of ISIL’s jihadi nasheeds, Islamic chants that are sung mostly a cappella. (The group’s interpretation of Islamic Law largely forbids the use of musical instruments, though the latest song is no stranger to post-production techniques like auto-tune.) The singers have a firm grasp of Mandarin pronunciation.
ISIL’s propaganda for foreigners typically details the group’s exploits and high opinions of itself. The Wall Street Journal produced a rough translation of the Mandarin song’s lyrics. Here is a sample:
The brilliance of Islam is etched in history. The purpose of our struggle is to let it shine again.
The brilliance of Islam is etched in history. The purpose of our struggle is to let it shine again.
Wake up! Muslim brother, now is the time to awaken
Take up your faith and courage, fulfill the lost doctrine.
Wake up! Muslim brother, now is the time to awaken
Take up your faith and courage, fulfill the lost doctrine.
We are Mujahid, our shameless enemy panics before us
To die fighting on this battlefield is our dream.
US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton thinks ISIL is the “world’s best recruiter.” But if the goal of this song is recruitment, the choice to perform it in Mandarin is puzzling.
The Chinese government and Communist Party have a very sensitive relationship with the country’s 20-million-plus Muslims. This is especially true of the ethnic Uighur minority that lives in western China’s Xinjiang Province, where acts of terrorism have been carried out several times. But ethnic Uighurs speak a Turkic language that is completely unrelated to Mandarin. While younger Uighurs are taught in Mandarin (paywall), those with a separatist and anti-China bent are not likely to care much for the language.
ISIL could plausibly be targeting ethnic Hui people, who account for over 10 million of China’s Muslims, but they are known to be more cooperative with the majority Han. Much more than Uighurs, they have played a central role in parts of Chinese history, and speak Mandarin. The famed Ming Dynasty sailor Zheng He, for example, who in the 15th century commanded voyages all the way to East Africa, was a Muslim Hui. But Hui also practice Sunni Islam, which could lead ISIL to consider them natural allies.
It seems more likely that doing the song in Mandarin is simply a way to direct a warning at all of China. The song is sure to annoy the Chinese Communist Party, as ISIL has been doing more often of late. Last month, the terrorist group murdered a Chinese national for the first time, and in another video it implicitly acknowledged Taiwan as a country.
