Wolf "Elected" To Protect The Sheep :roll:

UN Puts Saudi Arabia On Commission Responsible For ‘Gender Equality And The Empowerment Of Women’

The United Nations put Saudi Arabia on its commission for the empowerment of women Wednesday, despite the country mandating women can’t leave home without a male guardian.The UN’s Economic and Social Council voted by secret ballot (check-book diplomacy at work !) to put Saudi Arabia on the Commission on the Status of Women.
t is the principal international organization responsible for the “promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” according to the commission’s website.Saudi Arabia, a country notorious for its suppression of women’s rights, was ranked 134th out of 145 countries for gender equality in 2015. Saudi women are largely confined to the home under the direct supervision of male guardians, usually relatives, known as walis. A Saudi woman must obtain their wali’s permission to travel, marry, engage in business or undergo some medical procedures.Women in Saudi Arabia were not allowed to vote or participate in politics until 2015.
Saudi women also suffer high rates of domestic abuse, in addition to legal limitations. Saudi Arabia’s Makkah region recorded its highest amount of domestic violence cases in 2016, a trend seen across the country.Saudi Arabia’s mistreatment of women has forced some to attempt to flee and seek asylum in western countries. Such actions are punished with jail time, or worse, should the woman be caught.The UN was criticized in November for electing Saudi Arabia to its human rights council, despite its questionable record. Several human rights groups, including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, criticized Saudi Arabia’s election to the council and called for the suspension of the country’s membership.Saudi Arabia’s membership to both the human rights council and commission on the status of women will give it a say in key resolutions and platforms over the next several years. So Saudi Arabia is still "worming" its way to protect the "honor and dignity" of Saudi Women . Would not be surprised if a Saudi "male member" is assigned to this Commission :mrgreen:

The following is an excerpt from Nadvi’s speech (January 12, 2013): The person who claimed to be a false prophet his name is Ghulam Ahmad… Sudqi [?] tried to kill the jihad not by political terms… but by creating another religious term to demoralize jihad. This is the first and last agenda of Ghulam Ahmad to prove that I’m the messiah and the jihad is now cancelled. But what we do with the hadith [narration attributed to Mohammad]. The messenger of Allah [Mohammad] peace be upon him said الجهاد ماضي الى يوم القيامة Jihad will continue till the Day of Judgment… they were not cancelled. Relevant Canadian authorities should take not of his radical preacher and take necessary action against him !

Paki Origin US "Professor" Playing The Sick Game of Islamophobia :evil:

ISU professor arrested, accused of making up threats and attack

Azhar Hussain, an assistant professor at ISU has been arrested on charges alleging he made false reports of anti-Islamic threats against him and even reported an attack authorities say did not happen.Hussain, 56, faces a felony charge of obstruction of justice and a misdemeanor charge of harassment. He was booked into Vigo County Jail at 4:51 p.m. today and is scheduled for a Monday appearance in Vigo County Superior Court 6. Bond has been set at $10,000 cash.The university in a news release said Hussain, an assistant professor of aviation technology, has been suspended from teaching duties. Joh Pakistan mae gandhu, woh USA mae bhi ...
The charges stem from a series of emails that were received on campus containing anti-Muslim messages and threats of potential violence against members of the Muslim community, according to the university.The first report of the emails occurred on March 8. The messages specifically mentioned Hussain as a target.On March 24, Hussain reported an assault in the College of Technology in which he said he was attacked from behind as he was entering his office early that morning. He told police he was thrown to the floor.He said he had not seen his attacker, and no words were spoken. ISU Police at the time said four people in the vicinity were unable to corroborate his story, saying they'd seen no suspicious activity or people
The university on Friday said Hussain had been notified recently by Provost Mike Licari that he would not be reappointed to his faculty position beyond the 2017-18 academic year due to his inability to fulfill the conditions of his original appointment.“Based upon the investigation, it is our belief that Hussain was trying to gain sympathy by becoming a victim of anti-Muslim threats, which he had created himself,” said Joseph Newport, ISU's chief of police. He should now apply for a teaching position in Saudia , citing "discrimination" in Massaland !!!
ISU Police were assisted in the investigation by the Cybercrime and Investigative Technologies Section of the Indiana State Police and ISU's information technologies security engineer. During the investigation, ISU Police collaborated with the local FBI office and the Vigo County Prosecutor’s Office.Investigators were able to track the computers from which the emails originated and uncovered evidence to charge Hussain with sending the emails himself, according to the university news release.Licari indicated dismissal proceedings against Hussain would be started in accordance with university policy. Arrangements are being made to cover his remaining classes and administer final exams. A resume of Hussain's on a job site indicates he holds an MBA in aviation management from Embry-Riddle University and a bachelor's in aviation from the Florida Institute of Technology.He lists prior teaching experience at Everglades University, as well as former aviation jobs including airport operations coordinator at Kissimmee, Florida, Gateway Airport and airside operations officer at the Broward County, Florida, Aviation Department.His self-posted resume shows him having a doctorate from ISU in curriculum design earned in 2017, but the newspaper could not independently verify that degree listing on Friday afternoon.
So, true to form he seems to be a serial liar and a con-man! Giving a "good name " to his place of origin :mrgreen:

Bearing in mind General Muhammad Zia Ul Haq’s comment, which was influenced by Mohammadden belief based doctrine of Taqiyya that “Muslims have the right to lie in a good cause”, hardly surprising that yet another claim of so called Islamophobia turns out instead to be an act of Islamofabrication.

Joining the above mentioned act of Islamaphobia turning out to be an acts of Islamofabrication from Indiana in the US, are a few more cases from around the world, of acts of Islamophobia turning out instead to be acts of Islamofabrication.

Jan 8, 2016. 18 year old teenage female adherent of Mohammaddenism whose Hijab ripping claims was found not to be a case of Islamophobia but rather one of Islamofabrication:

Woman who lied about being attacked for wearing a hijab fined

Nov 10, 2016. 18 year old teenage female adherent of Mohammaddenism though a student of University of Louisiana at Lafayette claimed her Hijab was ripped, a story found later to be a lie:

Louisiana student ‘fabricated’ story of hijab attack, police say

Dec 14, 2016. Yasmin Seweid an 18 year old teenage female adherent of Mohammaddenism and student of Baruch College who claimed Trump supporters called her a 'terrorist' and tried to take off her hijab in New York subway attack, is arrested for 'making the story up':

Muslim teenager who claimed Trump supporters called her a 'terrorist' and tried to take off her hijab in New York subway attack is arrested for 'making the story up'

Dec 21, 2016. Police say complaint by female Mohammadden student of University of Michigan that a man threatened to set her alight if she did not remove her hijab, is a fabrication.

A Muslim student in Michigan claimed a man threatened to set her on fire. Police say it’s a hoax.

Jan 19, 2017. 14 year old Mohammadden girl who claimed she was pushed in front of a train because of her niquab found to be lying as CCTV shows she invented the story

Muslim girl who claimed she was pushed in front of a train because of her headscarf faces prosecution in Austria after CCTV shows she invented the story

News wire service United Press International (UPI) reports that stampeding wild boars kill three belonging to the Mohammadden belief inspired group, Islamic State aka IS aka ISIS, near Kirkuk in Iraq.

Does being killed by a “Haram” beast like a wild boar cancel out a trip by these dead Mohammaddens to “Jannat” and the company of “72 Houris”?

April 25 (UPI) -- A stampede of wild boars mauled to death three Islamic State militants waiting in ambush Sunday in Iraq, Kurdish fighters said Tuesday.

The mangled bodies were discovered by refugees fleeing territory controlled by the Islamic State about 50 miles southwest of Kirkuk, said Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-Islamic State forces. ……………………


The above article of wild boars killing three terrorists of the Mohammaddenbelief inspired group, Islamic State aka IS aka ISIS in Iraq reminds of the Janurary 1987by news wire service Associated Press (AP) story of a wild boar destrorying a F16 of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s Air Force :

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — A Pakistan air force F-16 exploded after hitting a wild boar on the runway during takeoff, The Nation newspaper said Friday.

The accident happened Thursday at the air force base at Sargodha, 120 miles southeast of Islamabad, the English-language newspaper said. It did not say whether the pilot survived.

The Nation said the fighter plane's nose wheel was knocked off after hitting a wild boar. The plane skidded along the runway, caught fire, "turned into a fireball and was destroyed," the newspaper said. ………………………

Excerpt:
Samuel: How are you personally working to make Islam more compatible with the secular values of France?

Oubrou: I myself am working on [an intellectual framework that I call] “the sharia of the minority”—how to adapt Islam, theologically speaking. Muslim theology in France must do the work of acculturating Islam, adapting it to French culture. It’s possible to simplify Islam and preserve what’s important to the Muslim tradition and respect French law and culture. There are a number of Muslims working on a theology of adaptation, to adapt Islam to the West in general and to France in particular.

I am also working on a “preventive theology”—how to elaborate a religious discourse that won’t lend itself to terrorism or fundamentalism.

Canadian Society Bending Over Backwards To Accommodate "Muslim Demand" :evil:

Human Rights Tribunal rules Brampton landlord must pay Muslim couple $12,000

It didn’t help his case that he shared a joke about a devout Muslim on his Facebook page.Now the small landlord who rented out the main floor of his Brampton home to an Arab Muslim couple must pay them $12,000 for failing to accommodate their religious practices when showing their apartment to prospective tenants.The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario also found that he “harassed them and created a poisoned housing environment.”His sins? John Alabi refused to remove his shoes when showing the bedroom where the couple prayed and while he always gave them the mandated 24-hour notice before showings, he didn’t always provide the five-minute heads-up they’d requested to ensure the wife was modestly dressed and they weren’t in the midst of their five daily prayers. Prayer room in school, time off for Namaz, covering face in citizenship ceremony, when is this appeasement going to stop !
n December 2014, Walid Madkour and his wife Heba Ismail moved from Montreal into Alabi’s ground-floor apartment. Following several disputes, including the couple allegedly wanting their landlord to be quiet after 10 p.m., they agreed to terminate the lease on Feb. 28, 2015.In the meantime, Alabi tried to rent out the unit. Madkhour wanted a one-hour notification of any showing in addition to the 24-hour notice.Alabi told him that by law, only 24 hours was necessary. Madkhour accused him of “racism and violation of our civil rights:” Since his landlord was well aware that Ismail was unemployed and always home, “he considered it harassment for (Alabi) to continue to say that he would enter the premises without permission.”Alabi texted back: “Welcome to Ontario, Canada.”The landlord told the hearing that he meant that apartment viewing rules were different in Ontario than in Quebec where the couple had last lived. The human rights tribunal saw it as another example of discrimination.That same evening, Ismail heard loud pounding on the steps outside their door; Alabi said he was just shovelling the snow; she said it was intimidating and frightening.The couple called police.They were told that contrary to their understanding, their landlord had a right to show the apartment when they were home. As a “courtesy,” Alabi agreed to give them five minutes notice in addition to the 24 hours. But that negotiated detente ended two days later after Ismail videotaped Alabi refusing to remove his shoes when entering their bedroom. “She said it was disrespectful and an act of racism.”Alabi told the hearing that his shoes had never been an issue before and accused his tenants of trying to set up roadblocks to his renting their flat. He also accused them of trying to impose their way of life on him and said “the fact that someone belongs to a religion does not permit them to inconvenience others.”The tribunal didn’t see it that way — especially after the tenants introduced their landlord’s Facebook page that had a “joke” about a devout Arab Muslim that they found offensive. Alabi told the hearing “he had freedom of speech and could post what he wanted on his Facebook page ... He did not share the post to attack anyone. He said he shared it only because it made him laugh.” The landlord should appeal the decision; a good lawyer should take up his case - pro-bono !

X Posted on the STFUP Thread.

Donald Trump: Saudi Arabia has not treated US fairly

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump complained on Thursday that US ally Saudi Arabia was not treating the United States fairly and Washington was losing a "tremendous amount of money" defending the kingdom.

In an interview with Reuters, Trump confirmed his administration was in talks about possible visits to Saudi Arabia and Israel in the second half of May. He is due to make his first trip abroad as president for a May 25 NATO summit in Brussels and could add other stops.

"Frankly, Saudi Arabia has not treated us fairly, because we are losing a tremendous amount of money in defending Saudi Arabia," he said.

Trump's criticism of Riyadh was a return to his 2016 election campaign rhetoric when he accused the kingdom of not pulling its weight in paying for the US security umbrella.

"Nobody's going to mess with Saudi Arabia because we're watching them," Trump told a campaign rally in Wisconsin a year ago. "They're not paying us a fair price. We're losing our shirt."

The United States is the main supplier for most Saudi military needs, from F-15 fighters to control and command systems worth tens of billions of dollars in recent years, while American contractors win major energy deals.

The world's top oil exporter and its biggest consumer have enjoyed close economic ties for decades, with US firms building much of the infrastructure of the modern Saudi state after its oil boom in the 1970s.
Saudi officials could not immediately be reached for comment on Trump's latest comments.

But Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir rejected similar comments from Trump during his election campaign, telling CNN during a visit to Washington last July that the Islamic kingdom "carries its own weight" as an ally.

Saudi Arabia's powerful deputy crown prince Mohammed bin Salman met with Trump last month in a meeting that was hailed by a senior Saudi adviser as a "historical turning point" in relations. The talks appeared to signal a meeting of minds on many issues, including their shared view that Iran posed a regional security threat.

Riyadh and other Gulf allies see in Trump a strong president who will shore up Washington's role as their main strategic partner and help contain Riyadh's adversary Iran in a region central to US security and energy interests, regional analysts said.

Islamic State "humiliation"

Asked about the fight against Islamic State, which Saudi Arabia and other US allies are confronting as a coalition, Trump said the militant group had to be defeated.

"I have to say, there is an end. And it has to be humiliation," Trump said, when asked about what the endgame was for defeating Islamist violent extremism.

"There is an end. Otherwise it's really tough. But there is an end," without detailing a strategy.
A visit to Israel would reciprocate a White House visit in February by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is due to meet Trump next Wednesday in Washington.

Trump has set a more positive tone with Israel than his Democratic predecessor, Barack Obama, who often clashed with the right-wing Israeli leader, and has raised concerns among Palestinians that their leaders may not get equal treatment.

Trump has also asked Israel to put unspecified limits on its building of Jewish settlements on land the Palestinians want for a state, and has promised to seek a Middle East peace deal that eluded his predecessors. However, he has offered no new diplomatic prescriptions.

"I want to see peace with Israel and the Palestinians," he said. "There is no reason there's not peace between Israel and the Palestinians - none whatsoever."

Trump brushed aside a question of whether he might use a possible trip to Israel to declare US recognition of the entire city of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a reversal of longstanding US foreign policy likely to draw international condemnation.

"Ask me in a month on that," he said, without elaborating.

If Trump ties an Israel visit to next month's Brussels trip, it would be around the time Israelis are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, when Israel captured Arab East Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war.

Successive US administrations as well as the international community have not recognized Israel's annexation of the eastern part of the city, and the future status of Jerusalem remains one of the thorniest issues in the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

Israel claims all of Jerusalem, which contains sites sacred to the Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths, as its capital. Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future state of their own.

QUESTION : Which Islamic Country has every treated Non-Islamic Countries in General and the United States in Particular FAIRLY?

Dictator Erdogan Flexes His ( Islamic ) Muscles !

Turkey bans dating shows, fires 4,000 officials under emergency

Turkey on Saturday fired almost 4,000 public officials and imposed a ban on TV dating shows, in new decrees issued under the state of emergency imposed after last year's failed coup.The moves were the latest tough action by the authorities following President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's victory in last month's referendum on enhancing his powers.They were also announced as Turkey controversially slapped a ban on Wikipedia earlier on Saturday morning.
An already nine-month state of emergency in place since the coup bid has seen a total of 47,000 people arrested and prompted fears the crackdown is being used to go after all opponents of Erdogan.Gulen denies being behind the coup but the authorities argue the purges are needed to wipe out his “virus” from society.In a separate decree issued at the same time, Turkey also banned hugely popular television dating shows, a move that been mooted for months by the government.“In radio and television broadcasting services, such programs in which people are introduced to find a friend.... cannot be permitted,” said the text of the decree. Islam in danger ! More Islam is the answer :mrgreen:
Opponents of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) government frequently voice fears that Turkey is sliding toward conservative Islam.
But AKP supporters have said that dating shows receive thousands of complaints every year and the ban is in the public interest. The popular American game show ( Wheel of Fortune ) being syndicated in Turkee is probably next on the hit list as it would be against "Malsi values" !

European Countries Moving Towards Niqab And Burkha Ban !

The Unveiling

European nations are adopting bans on the Islamic veil.Germany on Thursday followed several other European countries, which have banned, totally or partially, the full Islamic veil.The state of play across the continent:
Germany.German deputies voted Thursday on a partial ban on “covering the face.” The text does not specifically mention the full Islamic veil but was clearly drawn with the burqa in mind.
France
The first European country to ban the full-face veil in public spaces with a law that took effect in April 2011. The European Court of Human Rights upheld the burqa ban in 2014, rejecting arguments that outlawing full-face veils breached religious freedom.
Austria.Austria’s chancellor Christian Kern said in January he will seek to ban full-face veils in public.
Belgium.The wearing of the full veil is governed by a June 1, 2011 law prohibiting “appearing in places accessible to the public with a face masked or hidden, in whole or in part, in such a way as to be unidentifiable.”
Britain.There is no law restricting the wearing of garments for religious reasons The law needs to be changed to reflect popular public opinion. The Muslim vote bank is powerful in Bartania !
Bulgaria, Italy,Netherlands,Norway,Switzerland have similar laws on banning veil, burkha, niqab .
Three other countries that have not banned the burqa are among those closest to the Middle East or North Africa: Greece, Portugal and Spain.

Aung San Suu Kyi rejects UN inquiry into crimes against Rohingya

Aung San Suu Kyi has rejected a decision by the UN’s rights council to investigate allegations of crimes by Myanmar’s security forces against minority Rohingya Muslims.The UN body agreed in March to dispatch a fact-finding mission to the south Asian Asian country over claims of murder, rape and torture in Rakhine state.“We do not agree with it,” Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto leader, told a press conference on Tuesday with EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini during a visit to Brussels, when asked about the probe.
The Nobel laureate said that the country would be “happy to accept” recommendations that were “in keeping with the real needs of the region ... But those recommendations which will divide further the two communities in Rakhine we will not accept, because it will not help to resolve the problems that are arising all the time”.
But Aung San Suu Kyi rejected suggestions that she or Myanmar authorities were deliberately overlooking atrocities.“I am not sure quite what you mean by saying that we have not been concerned at all with regards to the allegations of atrocities that have taken place in the Rakhine,” she said. “We have been investigating them and have been taking action.”UN investigators say the crackdown likely amounts to crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing. I would opine that the Ummah countries are more vocal in support of their brothers in Burma . And, as Suu Kyi has stated , "facts on the ground" are different !

Saudi Cheque- Book Diplomacy .

Seven countries abstained in UN vote on Saudi Arabia :cry:

Seven countries abstained when a UN council voted on giving Saudi Arabia a place on the UN women's rights commission, the Swedish Foreign Ministry has confirmed. But it does not reveal whether Sweden was among them
After the vote, Belgium's prime minister has said that he "regrets" that his country voted in favour, blaming it on "a regrettable diplomatic mix-up". Balls !
The vote took place on the 19th of April, when a range of other nominations to various commissions and panels were voted on. Only when it came to the vote on the nominations for the women's rights commission was there a move to make it a secret ballot. This happened "at short notice" according to Margot Wallström, Svenska Dagbladet reports.The countries elected for the UN Commission on the Status of Women will stay in their seats for four years, 2018-2022. Saudi Arabia will be one out of 45 countries on the commission.

Breakthrough In Islamic Finance ! Digital Currency Launched.

New Gold-Based Shariah Compliant Digital Currency Launched

An Islamic financial services and technology company, OneGram, has partnered up with GoldGuard to build one of the world’s largest gold vaults in Dubai. ( the capital of "hot money" )The merger will also result in the creation of the world’s first entirely gold-backed digital currency.According to a statement, the currency will be in the form of tokens and each token will constitute and be exchanged for one gram of gold.
The main company, OneGram said in an official statement that they have appointed Sharia scholars on their board to make sure this new venture is in full compliance with Islamic Shariah. Have they come out with a Fatwa yet ; are the "bearded ones" familiar with the world of finance?
Furthermore, the statement also revealed that the Islamic finance sector around the world currently makes up about one percent of global GDP. Islamic finance continues to grow at a rate of almost twenty percent per year. ( Source ?)
For the nearly 2 billion and growing number of Muslims all over the world, OneGram is thought to be in line with the guidelines detailed by the Sharia.It is also a way for Muslims to keep their gold in a digital format, for increased safety as well as being easily transferable, especially for cross-border remittances. Will the new digital currency used for IT ( not information technology !) as well :mrgreen:

Just Like In Pakistan, Indonesians Get Riled Up After Friday Prayers .

Indonesia hard-liners call for jailing of Christian governor

AKARTA, Indonesia – Thousands of conservative Muslims took to the streets of the Indonesian capital to call for the jailing of its minority Christian governor who is on trial on charges of blaspheming the Quran. At least several thousand white-robed protesters marched after Friday prayers (Imams "trained" In Saudia or Paki Madrassahs :roll: ) at Istiqlal Mosque in central Jakarta until reaching the nearby Supreme Court building.
Some of the protesters held flags, banners and placards that said "Justice must be upheld" and "Ahok, the blasphemer of Islam, must be jailed."
Prosecutors last month recommended a two-year suspended prison sentence for Ahok. The light sentencing demand followed his defeat by a Muslim candidate in a runoff election for Jakarta governor. Indonesia is still designated as a "moderate" Muslim majority nation .

Islamic Banking is Suicidal Mr PM – Warn IIT-IIM Economists

Namaskar Shri Narendra Modi
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has proposed opening of “Islamic window” in conventional banks for “gradual” introduction of Sharia-compliant (interest-free) banking in the country. – HT
We have strong objection to it. So strong that we believe someone who has proposed this before the government must be put behind bars and probed for terror linkages. This proposal must be scrapped without a delay because
0. Sharia banking is unacceptable because according to Sharia
– Non-Muslims are worst of creatures [Quran 98/6]
– Non Muslims are to be fought, killed and destroyed until they pay Jaziya tax [Quran 9/5, 9/29]
– Non-Muslim women must be abducted, married and enslaved after fight [Quran 4/2,3, 33/50]
– Non-Muslims do not have equal rights in Sharia law
– Wives can be beaten [Quran 4/34]
– Muslim men can marry 4 women [Quran 4/2,3]
– Muslim men can divorce women unilaterally
– Muslims must strive to dominate world until whole world comes under Islamic flag i.e. all people accept Islam [Quran 9/29]

Such filth, violence and hatred for women and Non-Muslims form the foundation of Sharia. Sharia banking is the portion of this Sharia. It is shame that we are even discussing this matter which would have been scrapped at the clerical level itself. Ideology as dangerous as Sharia is now dreaming for a parallel economy. And we are not anguished! Surely, this is our failure.
1. Idea behind Islamic Sharia Banking has striking similarity with the idea of Pakistan.
No matter how novel, innovative and beneficial Sharia banking is, it still remains the most dangerous thing for India. The genesis of Sharia banking lies in the belief of a Muslim that the current interest based banking system is Haram. Haram is something that is against Islam. The concept of Halal and Haram itself is the root of all terrorism in the world. When you stop judging anything from the angle of good and bad and start judging from Halal-Haram, you agree that henceforth, the universal good and bad don’t matter to me. What matters only is what is written in my book. Instead of hating bad and loving good, man starts hating Haram and loving Halal. And then a whole list is prepared for Haram which need to be hated to be a pious Muslim

– other religions, their gods, their faiths
– nations who are not run by Halal
– people who do not believe in Halal, who practice Haram
– institutions who practice Haram

Next logical stage of hating Haram is fighting Haram. And then starts the conflict. Halal can’t live with Haram. They need separate land, people, laws, institutions and finally nation.
In 1947, Jinnah and his goons said- we can’t live with Hindus. Give us separate country. Handover Muslim majority areas to us. All properties and women in those areas now belong to us. We will run the nation according to Islamic Sharia.
In 2016, many are saying- we can’t use banks by Non Muslims. Give us a separate window/bank. We will run it according to Islamic Sharia.
Any difference?
NO. The starting is same.

Yes, Financial inclusion is necessary for all segments of society. But not through creation of religion-based finances, petrol, and electricity. But through enlightening all Indians to rise above religions and be Indian. Through educating them that modern finance has nothing Hindu, Muslim, anti-Muslim about it. That religion is a personal matter, and economies cannot run on whims of religious scholars. That economic policies, civil laws, criminal laws, property laws cannot be Hindu or Muslim. They can and must be only Indian. Those who have allergy to that should try if some other nation in world welcomes their separatism and settle there. Or fret and whine here till you understand that nation is above religion.
Unity in diversity is good. But creating divide in a unit so that it can fit the Jumla is foolish. One Pakistan is enough. No other will be tolerated. Its not the time of creating separate banks/systems. It is the time to scrap separate laws and implement Uniform Civil Code. More we listen to the patriots, less we bleed in partitions.With you always in service of Bharat Mata

Saudi Aam Abdul Sucking Up To Trump ?

Saudi father names newborn after Ivanka Trump

JEDDAH: A Saudi citizen residing in the northern city of Arar has named his new baby Ivanka, after the daughter of the US president, Ivanka Trump reported Arab News.The name was registered with the Health Ministry at the Women and Children Hospital in Arar and a picture of the birth certificate is being widely circulated on Whatsapp inside the Kingdom.Saudi citizen Salem Amer Salem Al-Ayashi Al-Anzi received both support and opposition across social media after choosing the name for his daughter. What the phuck ! A non - Islamic name allowed to given for a Muslim new born. And in the Land Of The Two Holy Mosques. Or is it one of many "empty gestures" being "offered" to Trump prior to his visit here . Will Ivanka ( Trump) reciprocate and send a "baby gift" from her exclusive line of Ivanka products :mrgreen:
Al-Anzi told Arab News that he insisted on the name after some colleagues told him that he would not be allowed to. When his wife gave birth, he chose the name and registered it on the new birth certificate and submitted the name to the Civil Status authority in Riyadh for approval.He said he named his daughter after the US first daughter, because there are no religious or moral prohibitions in Arabic or Saudi culture. A colleague had informed him that the meaning of Ivanka is “upmost beauty” and another said that it means “God is gracious,” he said. :roll:
The General Administration of Civil Status in the Kingdom prevents the registration of names that are blasphemous, names that fatwas have declared impermissible, names that are not socially valid and composite names, as per the civil status system.Last January, a Saudi businessman stirred mixed reaction when he bought a full-page advert in a top local newspaper to congratulate President Donald Trump on his inauguration. On Thursday, the White House announced that the US president is due to visit the Kingdom soon. To curry favour, with the new Amreeki strongman, the Saudis have made an one time exception by allowing an Anti- Muslim name and hoping that he will go easy on them vis-a-vis, terrorism,and sharing Massa's defence burden :mrgreen:

X Posted from the STFUP thread.

Pakistan’s Emerging Threat: Highly Educated Youth Gravitate to Radicalization

The paradigm that Mohammadden Terrorism arises because of the “disenfranchised and uneducated poor” is about as nonsencical as prominent Mohammadden‘s such as Pervez Mushaffarf, Asif Ali Zardari, Nawaz Sharif etc. saying that theirs is the belief of “Peace” and belongs to the same Islamofabrication Taqiyya genre of providing a burqua of mitigation to a Non-Mohammadden Kaafir audience for the high level of Mohammadden belief inspired violence that is afflicting the world.

Readers of BRF will also recollect that Pakistani origin LSE dropout Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh, “Daughter of the Nation” Brandeis and MIT educated Aafia Siddiqui, Daood Sayed Gilani aka David Coleman Headley, Capt. (Retd) Dr Tahawwur Hussain Rana; came from educated and affluent backgrounds and yet are serving prison time for indulging in acts of Mohammadden belief motivated Terrorism.

Intellectual discourse on Islam- Opinion Piece In Pakistani Newspaper!

On first impression, the word "intellectual" and the word "Islam" cannot mix . ( like oil and water!) . Therefore, "Intellectual discourse on Islam" is an oxymoron. :mrgreen: . Why? Because , "everything" in Malsi is decided by the "Book" or in many cases, the "Hadith", practices followed in the "golden age of Islam". The narrow mindedness of whose professing Malsi can be seen from :
The religious discourse in our society is largely anti-intellectual to the extent that even an intellectual approach to religion is sneered at as deviant, threatening and disrespectful. This anti-intellectual discourse is asserted by wielding power and instilling fear by religious leaders, and the use of threat and violence by those who lack the privilege of religious authority.
.
Then there is the threat to resort to violence if one does not get his own way, the marginalization of women and minorities in an Islamic society, the number one ism of Malsi over everything else etc etc . So there is a streak of superiority in Malsi and rational discussion is impossible !. So "intellectual discourse on Islam " is just an armchair discussion - or to fill up newspaper space !

Saudi Arabia unveils plan to build Las Vegas type entertainment city

Saudi Arabia has unveiled plans to build an entertainment city in Riyadh as big as Las Vegas.The city would be built on 129 square miles and will offer entertainment, sporting and cultural activities apart from hosting a safari and Six Flags theme park.
The kingdom’s Public Investment Fund will be the main investor in the project, for which work will commence in 2018. The first stage will be finished by 2022, according to a statement by Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, deputy crown prince, carried by state news agency SPA.

Couple of interesting questions come to mind , when you read this "fantastic" news :mrgreen:
1. First, Las Vegas in often referred to as "sin city" in USA. Will Riyadh and the Sharia inspired Saudi Govt be "comfortable" with that comparison !
2. Las Vegas attracts visitors all over the world - no questions asked about religion, dietary habits, sexual and , entertainment preferences, dress code, language barriers etc etc . They come there to have a good time ! In the eyes of the world, Saudi Arabia is not synonymous with entertainment and fun . Saudi cities and shopping malls are crawling with Religious Police ready to cane/arrest people not complying with "Sharia". How will the new "entertainment city" handle this .
3. Last but not the least,you need international traffic/ tourists to make such a concept viable . For that you need an "open society , visa approval etc etc other wise you will have a "new ozymandias" near Riyadh :twisted:

PS: have they not already "converted" their Holy City Mecca ( no entry to non-Muslims !) into a BIG SHOPPING MALL !!!

Trump supporter's racist rant at Muslim family on holiday in Texas

A Muslim family - including three children aged four and two - were subjected to a barrage of racist abuse by an apparent Donald Trump supporter while on holiday at a beach in Texas.

Noria Alward posted footage of the verbal attack by Alexander Jennes Downing, from Connecticut, in South Padre Island on YouTube.

She wrote: "While enjoying our time at the beach during a family reunion, our kids and us had to experience ugliness and aggressiveness in the worse shape and form possible."

Two women on the beach asked her father to help stop a man from harassing them, she said, and so he did.

All my father said to the guy was "please enjoy your time and have fun and let everyone else here enjoy their time", she wrote.

The man, who appeared to be drunk, initially walked away, but returned and yelled at the family and can be heard shouting: "You're a f****** Muslim, m*****f*****.

"You will never ever, ever stop me, my Christianity from rising above your sharia law. Your sharia law don't mean s*** to me."

He also squared up to a male member of the group and continued: "ISIS don't mean s*** to me, m*****f*****.

"Donald Trump will stop you! Donald Trump will stop you! Donald Trump will stop you m******f*****.

"Donald Trump got you m*****f******. Watch... watch."

Another witness to the episode on the beach can be seen throughout the 20-minute rant trying to encourage Downing to stop and leave the family alone.

He walked away again and returned almost immediately, pounding his chest, saying: "My country is the greatest country in the God damn world.

"Donald Trump m*****f*****. Come f*** with Donald Trump. That's my m*****f****** president."

Downing was arrested by police later the same day - 3 May - and was charged with public intoxication.

Ahmed, a member of the family, wrote in an email to Buzzfeed News: "When he called it his country. It is my country too. America is my country whether he likes it or not."

Green on Green Intra Mohammadden violence sees Sunni Mohammadden belief inspired group Islamic State aka ISIS unleash a demonstration of the IED Mubarak variant of the IEDology of Pakistan targeting another Sunni Mohammadden belief group, the Jamiat e Ulema Islam aka Jui-F on the Mohammadden Sabbath of Friday in an apparent case of the “More Pure” culling the “Less Pure” in the Land of the Pure.

For a belief whose adherents keep insisting that theirs is The Belief of Peace, it is very dissonant to see a case such as this where a prominent person of the belief such as a Maulana belonging to an outfit carrying the term Islam in its title, is sucide bombed by an organisation carrying the term Islam in its title and belonging to the same Sunni sect as the target that to on the Mohammadden Sabbath of Friday :roll: :

Osama’s son Hamza 'bent on avenging his father's death': Ex-FBI agent

WASHINGTON: Osama bin Laden's son Hamza is poised to lead a stronger, larger al-Qaida and is "bent on avenging" his father's death, according to a former FBI agent familiar with the personal letters seized in a dramatic US raid that killed the al-Qaida leader in Pakistan's Abbottabad.

Hamza, about 28 year old now, wrote those letters when he was 22 and had not seen his father bin Laden in several years.

Ali Soufan, the former FBI agent who was the bureau's lead investigator of al-Qaida after the 9/11 attacks, told CBS News the letters reveal Hamza to be a young man who adores his father and wants to carry on his murderous ideology.

The letters collected in the raid by helicopter-borne US Navy SEALs at a secure high-walled compound in Abbottabad, a garrison town north of the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, in May 2011 have now been declassified.

Only a handful of US military and senior officials around then US President Barack Obama knew of the raid that was reportedly in the planning for months.

For a new episode of '60 Minutes' on the network, Soufan described one of those letters from Hamza: "He tells him that...he remembers 'every look...every smile you gave me, every word you told me.'"

Hamza also wrote this: "I consider myself to be forged in steel. The path of jihad for the sake of God is what we live."

Soufan said Hamza's potential as a leader was recognised years ago when he was still a boy. He was used in propaganda videos, sometimes holding a gun.

"He was a poster kid for the al-Qaida...and for members of al-Qaida, who were indoctrinated with these propaganda videos, he means a lot to them," Soufan said.

This January, the US named Hamza a "specially-designated global terrorist" - the same classification bin Laden had
.
He even sounds like his father, said Soufan. "His recent message that came out, he delivered the speech as if it's his father...using sentences, terminology that was used by Osama bin Laden."

Hamza has recorded four audio messages in the last two years. "He's basically saying, 'American people, we're coming and you're going to feel it. And we're going to take revenge for what you did to my father...Iraq... Afghanistan'...the whole thing was about vengeance," Soufan said.

The inevitable consequence of appeasement of adherents of Mohammaddenism for vote bank purposes is to fan the sense of unrealistic entitlement.

Mohammadden Imam of Kolkata's Tipu Sultan Mosque, Noor ul Barkati, who is infamous for passing political fatwas, insists that the he will not adhere to our countries bid to end VIP Culture and will continue to place a red beacon aka Lal Bhatti atop his car as the British :roll: gave him permission to do so, not to mention more recently West Bengal’s Trinamool Congress Chief Minister, Mamata Bannerjee

British Gave Me Right To Use Lal Batti Claims Bengals Fatwa Cleric

Kolkata: Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi banned red beacons or lal battis across the country, one man says no power can make him drop it. "I have the permission of the British government," says the chief cleric of Kolkata's Tipu Sultan mosque, Noor Ul Barkati.

The cleric says he is entitled to a privilege that has been passed down since the British ruled India. A police complain has been filed against him

"The Indian government has to make its own law, which it hasn't. I have a permission of the British government as beacons have been used since British time," says Imam Barkati.

Last month, PM Modi banned red and blue beacons, without exception, and decided that these could be used only by vehicles used by emergency services. One of the main reasons behind the ban is that because of its misuse, by politicians and those in power, the lal batti has come to symbolize VIP arrogance ………………..

Palace Intrigues And Nepotism In The Saudi Royal Court- The Rise And Rise Of Prince Mohamed Bin Salman :mrgreen:

Saudi palace coup: The sequel

A Saudi prince needs three sources of power to become king. In order of importance, they are the United States, the royal family, and the Saudi people, although the latter come a distant third in any calculation.
his has been the case for every Saudi king since 14 February 1945 when Franklin D Roosevelt met the kingdom’s founder, King Abdul Aziz on a US destroyer in the waters of Egypt’s Great Bitter Lake.
When King Abdullah died on 23 January 2015 and his half-brother Salman came to the throne, his son, Mohammed bin Salman had nothing in place. He was a minister of state and advisor to his father, but he was unknown in Washington and he was only 29 years old. A callow youth. The first in a four act opera to install Mohammed on the Saudi throne began then.
Act One: Royal flushKing Salman flushed out the remnants of Abdullah’s court, starting with the dead king’s Cardinal Richelieu, Khaled Tuwaijri, the general secretary and gatekeeper to the Royal Court.Tuwaijri was replaced by the young Mohammed who at the same time became the youngest defence minister in the world. Salman installed his brother, Prince Muqrin, as crown prince and put his nephew, Mohammed bin Nayef, as deputy crown prince.
Act Two: Son rise.King Salman kicked his brother Prince Muqrin out of his role of crown prince, put his nephew, Bin Nayef, into the post and made his favoured son, Mohammed, deputy crown prince. Mohammed was pictured kissing the hand of his older cousin, Bin Nayef. But it was only a matter of time before he learned to bite it. This kind of intrigue inevitably happens under Malsi's "liberal mandate" of having more that one wife at one time , and getting rid of them by repeating a few word (talaq, talaq, talaq !) :mrgreen:
Bin Nayef nursed a personal grudge against Bin Zayed, who had likened his father to a monkey. Furthermore, Bin Nayef’s stock with the Pentagon and Washington was high. He was Washington’s man. Very soon things started looking up for regional powers that challenged the Emiratis, the Muslim Brotherhood supporting regimes of Turkey and Qatar. Raheel Sharif, the new kid on the block , in the Royal Household, should watch his back , for Palace intrigues and shifting alliances, if he wants to keep his Muslim NATO job :mrgreen:
By December that year, the German intelligence agency the BND issued an unusually candid one-and-a-half-page memo portraying the 29-year-old Mohammed as a reckless gambler with too much power.
Act Three: Decrees of Separation[/quote]
Now comes Act Three. On Saturday, King Salman issued 40 decrees. The most important one was to restore Mohammed’s popularity by reestablishing the financial allowances for civil servants and military personnel that Vision 2030 had slashed. Mohammed was bizarrely given credit for this, although it was his decision to cut the allowances in the first place. This was further to diminish the role of his cousin Bin Nayef in all this.In other decrees, Mohammed's youngest brother, Khaled, was made US ambassador. Khaled’s only experience of international diplomacy is at the controls of an F16 as a fighter pilot. Curiously, in the same batch of decrees, a minister was sacked for employing his son. That rule however does not apply to the House of Saud. Blood is thicker than water ! Me and my brother against me and my cousin... ( Arab proverb ) :mrgreen:
Dozens of other members of the royal family got important posts, compounding Mohammed’s grip over it.
So that’s Washington squared, the family bought off, and the people pleased. However, Bin Nayef still stands in Mohammed’s way. Palace intrigues, hope Massa has a "good agent in the Royal household" :mrgreen:
Act Four: Bringing the house down[/quote]

having entire Idlib next to the open border with turkiye as a AQ safe zone under nato patronage is going to help nato fight the resurgent AQ looking to reemerge from the shadows ? .... :oops:

the population has been purged of any normal people slowly as more and more jihadis with family from other enclaves in syria board the green bus for idlib. chechen trainers are on site, so are north african vets, and uighurs.

it is emerging as the Mordor of the levant. the threat level it radiates is growing

NATOs plan might be to use it like TSP to control and needle Assad and Russia. it has a strategic location to threaten both the coast and aleppo.

but just like TSP while one set of actors will follow the western script, another will deviate and do what they want...and high on that list will be strikes on the west

Articles on the horrifying display of the lack of Justice and Moderation that the application of Mohammadden belief based law brings from two widely separated though overwhelmingly Mohammadden countries located on two separate continents.

From Mali a story of Mohammadden belief based law resulting in a couple stoned to death for indulging in consensual hetrosexual sex without getting married:

Unmarried Mali couple stoned to death for violating 'Islamic law'

From Indonesia a story of Mohammadden belief based law resulting in a couple getting lashed for indulging in consensual homosexual sex:

Sharia court in Indonesia sentences two gay men to 85 lashes each after being caught having sex

For a belief that permits male adherents to simultaneously have upto four wives and beguiles with talk of 72 virginal Houris in Jannat, the bloodthirsty punishments handed out to adults involved in consensual sex in certain forms and circumstances is not only medievally violent but ludicrous.
