Australia: Muslim Man Tells Wife He Can Have Multiple Wives

From the Daily Mail:
Muslim women with violent husbands are struggling to get permission for a divorce from mosque imams, an investigation has revealed.

A parallel system of Islamic Sharia law operating in Australia is trapping wives in abusive relationships, for years, as male religious leaders refuse to recognise a women’s right to end a marriage.

The ABC has spoken to women about their struggles to dissolve an Islamic union.

They have blamed Muslim imams for dismissing their concerns about domestic violence.

While a Muslim man can divorce his wife by saying ‘I divorce you’ in Arabic three times, women have a much harder time in Australia getting permission to be allowed a separation.

The ABC investigation into religion and domestic violence heard from one woman, known by the pseudonym of Noor, who endured a husband yelling at her in front of their children for the way she cooked dinner.

He also beat her when she confronted him about how he had limited her ability to access bank finances, and threatened to take another wife, even though Australia doesn’t recognise polygamy.

‘I’m allowed to marry four women,’ he told her.

‘You have to change your Western mentality.’

Noor told the ABC she visited the Board of Imams Victoria, in the inner-city Melbourne suburb of Coburg North, to apply for an Islamic divorce.

The woman, who wore a niqab during their decades-long marriage, also supplied them with a secret audio recording of her husband’s outburst…..

UK: Muslim Driver Who Ran Over Pedestrian's Head Also Had Terror Charges Against Him

From the Daily Mail:
A driver jailed for deliberately running over a pedestrian he thought was holding up traffic has previously been convicted of terror offences.

Shahid Ali sped off after driving over Patrick Colbert’s head and his body in his Mercedes in Balsall Heath, Birmingham.

The 43-year-old, who dumped his car after the incident on July 11 last year, was acquitted of attempting to murder Mr Colbert but was convicted of causing him grievous bodily harm with intent.

But it has now emerged Ali, of Washwood Heath, Birmingham, had a previous conviction for assisting in acts of terrorism.

He was jailed for 27 months in 2009 for his involvement in sending four loads of equipment between 2004 and 2006 to Pakistan to be used against British forces and their allies fighting in Afghanistan.

He had previously admitted causing serious injury by dangerous driving at Birmingham Crown Court.

Ali was told by Judge Paul Farrer QC: ‘You have been convicted of a very serious offence by the jury, one which will inevitably carry many years of imprisonment.’

In sentencing Ali to 12 years in jail, he said; ‘You were angry and I have no doubt that you shouted and swore at Mr Colbert, in effect telling him to get out of the road.’

He said the victim had suffered a severe traumatic brain injury with hemorrhaging over his brain and that the effects on him had been ‘profound and continuing.’

And he went on ‘This offence involved the deliberate use of a car as a weapon.’

It was also an aggravating feature, he said, that afterwards he had tried to remove and obscure evidence by wiping his vehicle….

Ali then deliberately turned hard right knocking the pedestrian over and causing him to hit his head on the ground.

But he didn’t stop and continued to drive over him slowly passing over the victim’s groin, chest and head….

Negotiating With Palestinians? Don't Hold Your Breath

From Jihad Watch:
The United Nations 1948 two-state solution, Camp David, Oslo, the Road Map to Peace, the withdrawal from Gaza, the West Bank settlement freeze and more — attempt after attempt to bring peace to Israel and the Palestinian Arab Muslims has ended in failure. Yet that doesn’t stop Washington policymakers and the international media from attempting to try again, hoping that maybe this time negotiators will hit upon a formula that will, at long last, satisfy everyone, and allow Israelis and “Palestinians” to live together side-by-side in peace and even friendship, as so many Presidents and other world leaders have expressed confidence that they someday would.

But all such negotiations are foredoomed to failure. The reason why is explained in my forthcoming book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS. This is not only the first and only book in the English language to provide a comprehensive history of the jihad not just against Europe, but worldwide; it is also the first that I know of to situate the founding of the State of Israel and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict within the larger history of the global jihad.

In The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, you’ll discover:

  • The Islamic concept that makes it impossible for believing Muslims ever to accept a State of Israel in any form;
  • Franklin D. Roosevelt’s startling reaction when he was presented with plans to establish a Jewish state in the Middle East;
  • The renowned Muslim leader who began inciting attacks against Jews in the Holy Land as early as 1919, nearly three decades before Israel was founded;
  • The Nazi official who testified at the Nuremberg Trials that the Mufti of Jerusalem had been a central figure in the planning of the genocide of the Jews in Europe;
  • The American journalist who met Muslim Brotherhood leader Hasan al-Banna as he was preparing the Brotherhood to attack Israel, and described al-Banna as “the most loathsome man I had yet met in Cairo”;
  • “All Arabs shall arise and annihilate the Jews — we shall fill the sea with their corpses”: why the UN’s attempts in 1948 to broker a peaceful settlement between Israel and the Muslim Arabs failed;
  • The sinister, shadowy figures who invented the “Palestinian” nationality as a weapon to destroy Israel;
  • The vicious Eastern European dictator who trained Yasser Arafat in how to deceive the Western media;
  • And much, much more.

This is the one book that explains why all the attempts at negotiated settlement between Israel and the “Palestinians” have failed, and why all future attempts will fail as well.

Many will not want to hear this, but choosing comforting fantasy over harsh reality is never productive in the long run. In order to find a solution, we must begin with accurate and realistic premises. Pre-order The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS here.

France ‘Expels’ Controversial Salafist Preacher To Algeria

From France 24:
Controversial Salafist preacher, Imam El Hadi Doudi, who was based in the southern French city of Marseille, was expelled to Algeria Friday morning following a lengthy legal process, according to a French media report.

The 63-year-old preacher — who was born in Algeria and does not have French citizenship — was expelled on Friday, the AFP reported quoting an unnamed French interior ministry source.

The expulsion followed a deportation order issued by the French interior ministry on Tuesday.

But Doudi’s expulsion application was suspended pending a ruling by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), which finally ruled in favour of the deportation on Thursday.

The ruling followed an appeal by the Salafist cleric’s lawyer, Nabil Boudi, who argued that his client would be tortured or suffer “inhuman or degrading treatment” if he was returned to Algeria.

The court granted the French government 72 hours “to gather the additional information necessary to make an informed decision”. Doudi was held in an administrative detention center pending the court’s final ruling.

Sermons targeting women, Jews, Shiites

The imam of the as-Sounna mosque, in the heart of Marseille, was one of the most high profile cases in the French government’s effort to combat radicalisation.

The new de-radicalisation plan announced by French President Emmanuel Macron’s government includes increased surveillance of Muslim clerics accused of hate speech and incitement to violence.

The as-Sounna mosque was closed in December following allegations that Doudi was provoking discrimination, hatred and violence toward an individual or group.

A confidential government investigative report, seen by the New York Times, cited numerous sermons by Doudi, where he preached that Jews are “unclean, the brothers of monkeys and pigs”. Women, the preacher stressed, could not leave their homes without authorisation, and an apostate “needs to be eliminated by the death penalty to protect Muslims”.

In its expulsion application, the French Interior Ministry cited the radical imam’s “deliberate incitement to discrimination, hatred or violence against a particular person or group of persons”, notably women, Jews, Shiites and people committing adultery….

Between 2012 and 2015, the French Interior Ministry expelled 40 Muslim clerics while another 52 people – including clerics – were expelled over the past 28 months, according to the New York Times….

United States: CAIR Files Lawsuit On Behalf Of Inmate Who Makes Spurious Victimhood Claims

From Jihad Watch:
Victimhood is currency in our ridiculous society, but Islamic advocacy groups such as the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) have a problem: there aren’t very many genuine “anti-Muslim hate crimes,” not nearly enough to fuel their propaganda machine. So they have to be fabricated out of whole cloth.

Hamas-linked CAIR is suing the Michigan Department of Corrections, claiming that officials didn’t allow Siwatu-Salama Ra, a “community activist” who was convicted on felonious assault and weapons charges, to wear a hijab. But “prison spokesperson Chris Gautz says she didn’t arrive at the prison with a hijab and also didn’t ask for one. The request instead came from attorneys representing her. ‘We immediately went to the prisoner and asked her if she would like one. She indicated that she would so we provided her with the form that she can fill out to purchase a hijab.'”

Also, “they won’t provide her with pork-free meals,” but “the prison says they don’t have any meals with pork.”

Finally, “Religious leader Marna Mohammed says she was barred from visiting her in prison. ” But “Gautz said that’s not how the system works. ‘(You can’t just say) here’s this paper that says I’m allowed to come in as a clergy, I want to come into the prison today. That’s not how it works.'”

There is no discrimination here. There is no “Islamophobia” here. This is just Hamas-linked CAIR playing the victimhood game they play so well.
From Fox 2:
DETROIT (WJBK) – The Council on American Islamic Relations has filed a lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections on behalf of a community activist, saying the Muslim woman is not allowed to wear a hijab, not getting meals in line with her faith.

Siwatu-Salama Ra was sentenced in March for felonious assault and weapons charges. The woman is also 6 1/2 months pregnant but terrified of delivering her baby in prison.

“She is extremely fearful of having to give birth in prison, simply because of the way the prison has treated her, she has been treated,” her attorney, Victoria Burton-Harris, said.

CAIR filed the civil rights complaint against the DOC, saying that ever since she arrived at the women’s Huron Valley correctional facility, she’s been discriminated against for her beliefs.

“She has been unable to get a hijab or Islamic head covering, despite many requests by herself and our organization to provide her with one,” CAIR attorney Amy Doukoure said.

Prison spokesperson Chris Gautz says she didn’t arrive at the prison with a hijab and also didn’t ask for one. The request instead came from attorneys representing her.

“We immediately went to the prisoner and asked her if she would like one. She indicated that she would so we provided her with the form that she can fill out to purchase a hijab,” Gautz said.

The prison says the hijab will arrive next week.

That’s not the only problem. She also say she can’t get a copy of the Quran in prison and they won’t provide her with pork-free meals.

“MDOC would not allow her her own holy book to read, they tried to give her a bible. So see this is just a pattern,” Dawud Walid, Exec. Dir of CAIR, said.

The prison says they don’t have any meals with pork and deny allegations of discrimination.

“We have a paper trail and evidence that shows we took every step possible to meet the individual needs,” Gautz said.

Additionally, Religious leader Marna Mohammed says she was barred from visiting her in prison.

“The MDOC’s website specifically states that if I come with my letter from the religious organization and my ID that I would be allowed my initial visit. I was denied repeatedly.”

Gautz said that’s not how the system works.

“(You can’t just say) here’s this paper that says I’m allowed to come in as a clergy, I want to come into the prison today. That’s not how it works.”…

Greece: Turkish Jets Harass Aircraft Holding Greek's Prime Minister

From Ekathimerini:
Two Turkish fighter aircraft reportedly harassed the Chinook helicopter carrying Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the Greek Armed Forces Chief Admiral Evangelos Apostolakis as they were flying from the islet of Ro to Rhodes on Tuesday afternoon.

The Turkish fighter jets, flying at an altitude of 10,000 feet, asked the Greek helicopter pilot, which at that moment was at 1,500 feet, to provide flight details, according to defense sources.

The pilot immediately informed the prime minister and the HNDGS Chief and alerted the Greek air force which dispatched two fighter jets, which approached the area at 20,000 feet. The Turkish aircraft retreated.

Speaking earlier from the southeastern Aegean island of Kastellorizo earlier in the day, Tsipras said Greece will defend its principles “in any way it can… and will not cede an inch of territory,” in an apparent dig at recent provocations from Turkey….

Migrants Bully And Beat Boy Because He Is German And 'Eating Pork'

The abused boy is a vegetarian, but why would Muslims care if non-Muslims eat pork?

From Voice of Europe:
After German daily newspaper “The Tagesspiegel” asked their readers to tell about incidents of school violence and bullying, they received a lot of replies.

“Our son is in fourth grade at a middle school and has been bullied since the first year. He was abused, beaten and kicked because he is German. Classmates call him ‘German pig’, ‘pig’ and ‘German potato’. At his school are mainly children with a migrant background. Most are Muslims,” one family says.

The boy and his family live in Berlin-Mitte, which is a multicultural neighbourhood, according to them. “We like to live there, we have a motley circle of friends. But our son being bullied and attacked for allegedly eating pork is simply unbearable for us. He does not even eat any, we are vegetarians.”

“In addition to countless insults that he has to listen to daily, our son was kicked down a staircase and beaten several times in the schoolyard – sometimes in front of the teacher. He was picked up from school by the ambulance more than once”, the family continues.

The boy once had to stay in a hospital for a weekend because a classmate had kicked him in the stomach and it was unclear whether any organs were injured, the family tells The Tagesspiegel. “There have been six incidents so far in just one year. We do not want to take this anymore”….

Plot Twist: Man Wearing A Kippa (Yarmulk) Who Was Assaulted In Berlin Is Actually An Israeli Arab

From The Local:
German political and religious leaders expressed shock Wednesday over an alleged anti-Semitic attack on two men wearing traditional Jewish skullcaps in central Berlin filmed by one of the victims.

One of the young men targeted, who captured the incident on his smartphone, said they were confronted by three Arabic-speakers shouting insults at them, one of whom lashed out at him with a belt.

Berlin police in their report on Tuesday’s suspected anti-Semitic attack said that the suspect later also threatened his victim with a glass bottle.

In a twist to the story, the author of the video tape, which went viral on social media, a 21-year-old student called Adam, said Wednesday that he is an Israeli Arab.*

He told broadcaster Deutsche Welle that he wore the Jewish kippa gifted to him by a friend to see whether it was safe to do so on the streets of his upmarket Berlin neighbourhood.

He said he filmed the attack as evidence “for the police and for the German people and even the world to see how terrible it is these days as a Jew to go through Berlin streets”.

“I’m not Jewish, I’m Israeli,” he said. “I grew up in Israel in an Arabic family and I think that it was an experience for me to wear the kippa.”

The video shows the attacker shouting “yahudi”, Jew in Arabic, and later a bruise on Adam’s torso.

The incident was described as a “disgrace” for German democracy by a spokeswoman for Chancellor Angela Merkel and by Justice Minister Katarina Barley.

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Germany “bears a responsibility to protect Jewish life” more than 70 years after the end of the Holocaust in which the Nazis murdered six million European Jews.

In a video interview with Bild newspaper, Adam said the main attacker seemed to have a “Syrian dialect”….
