Judge Goes Soft on Saudi Who Kept Housekeeper "Virtual Slave"

Art_2687_2 From the Colorado Springs Gazette

Key Excerpts:

"A Saudi linguist convicted of sexually assaulting a housekeeper and keeping her a virtual slave for four years won a 20-year reduction in his prison sentence Friday, and his defense attorneys hope it means he'll be released from prison soon."

"District Judge J. Mark Hannen sentenced Homaidan al-Turki to between eight years and life in prison during a hearing Friday in Centennial. Hannen cited al-Turki's good behavior in prison in reducing the original sentence of 28 years to life:

"Mr. al-Turki already has been substantially punished for his conduct against the victim," Hannen said in handing down the new sentence."

 "Al-Turki insists he is innocent and a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment. "

"His case has angered Saudi authorities - several of whom attended Friday's hearing - and prompted the U.S. State Department to send Colorado Attorney General John Suthers to Saudi Arabia to meet with King Abdullah, Crown Prince Sultan and al-Turki's family after al-Turki's 2006 conviction."

"Saudi Ambassador Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir sent a letter to Hannen telling him that al-Turki's incarceration is perceived as unjust in his home country and asked for leniency partly to keep "the long-standing friendship that exists between our two countries." --read it all here.

Saudis Import Slaves to America 

Daniel Pipes, New York Sun, June 16, 2005

It's shocking, especially for a graduate student and owner of a religious bookstore - but not particularly rare. Here are other examples of enslavement, all involving Saudi royals or diplomats living in America.

Saudi sheik: 'Slavery is a part of Islam'

WorldNetdaily, November 10, 2003

www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=35518

[accessed 21 December 2010]

A leading Saudi government cleric and author of the country's religious curriculum believes Islam advocates slavery.  "Slavery is a part of Islam," says Sheik Saleh Al-Fawzan, according to the independent Saudi Information Agency, or SIA.  In a lecture recorded on tape by SIA, the sheik said, "Slavery is part of jihad, and jihad will remain as long there is Islam."  His religious books are used to teach 5 million Saudi students, both within the country and abroad, including the United States.


Another Pakistani Christian Arrested for Violating Islamic "Blasphemy" Law

"Agnes Nuggo was denounced for blasphemy after she became embroiled in a property dispute with Muslim neighbors in the Punjab province. Accused of making statements that insulted the Mohammed, she insists that she is innocent.

"The case is typical: a Christian is accused by unfriendly neighbors; the charge is entirely dependent on the testimony of those neighbors. Despite the obvious weakness of the legal case, courts are under heavy pressure from Islamic militants to convict the accused. Christian women face additional risks because Islamic societies favor the testimony of male witnesses."-Persecution blog.

A young Christian woman, Asia Bibi, is still under arrest in Pakistan charged under the insane ridiculous "blasphemy law".

From Asia News:

"An online petition (to be sent to AsiaNews, or directly to the President of Pakistan) for the revocation of the death sentence for a Christian woman sentenced to hang for blasphemy. But we are also asking for the cancellation or overhaul of the blasphemy law, which is destroying harmony and development in Pakistan."

"At our reader’s request, AsiaNews has decided to launch an international petition to be sent to President Asif Zardari to save the life of Asia Bibi, who was sentenced to hanging for blasphemy. AsiaNews is also asking President Zardari to cancel or change the unjust blasphemy law, which kills many innocent victims and destroys coexistence in the country. We are asking you o support this initiative by sending a message to the following email:

salviamoasiabibi@asianews.it

Or you can send a message directly to the Pakistani President:

publicmail@president.gov.pk

An on line petition by the Barnabus Fund is being circulated to members of Congress, to urge them to press the Afghan government for the release of Afghan Christians like Said Musa facing the death penalty for "apostacy".

Proof Fatah Isn't "Moderate": For Those State Dept. People in Willfull Denial

Salam Salam Fayad, a top leader in the Fatah Palestinian Authority, is openly calling for a unity government with Hamas. 

Hamas is a U.S. and Internationally recognized Islamic terrorist organization.

This should pull the mask off of the false narrative of "moderate" Fatah.

Israel has never had a true "partner for peace".

The so-called "peace-process" has always been used as a tactic:,--

 first by Arafat, and then later by the Abbas led PA, in an effort to gain territorial concessions from Israel ,while their true agenda of the destruction of Israel remains unchanged.

And each Israeli concession resulted in more terrorism.

That tactic coincides with the PLO "Phased Plan", whereby Fatah has played the peace-process game for financial aid, while never abandoning terrorism and its desire to destroy Israel.

In 2002 official Palestinian Authority documents were captured that revealed Fatah and the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, another U.S. recognized terrorist organization, were the same.

That information should have immediately resulted in the U.S. freezing Fatah Palestinian Authority assets, cut off of funding, and a redesignation of the PLO as a recognized terrorist organization. 

[See "How the PLO was Legitimized,"- by former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Jeane Kirkpatrick.]

Nevertheless, U.S. politicians and the State Dept. turned a willfull blind eye, and continued its political and financial support of the Fatah PLO Authority.

Clueless in Washington. Absolutely clueless.

 

 

 


Kill the "Kill Switch Bill"!

No government shut down or takeover of internet!

Call, write your Congressman.

Consider the source of this legislation: 

The bill was introduced by Senator's Joe Lieberman , Tom Carper, and rino Maine Senator Susan Snow. Harry Reid says it will be a "top priority".

So will the opposition be a top priority!

This is worse than the "Fairness Doctrine" attempt to limit free-speech.

The internet reaches more people with important info than TV or radio ever has or will.

Kill the "Kill Switch Bill"!

"Supporters say the government needs this power, because national infrastructure systems are now tied to the Internet. Yet, some fear the legislation is an attempt by government to get its fingers on the Internet -- giving it the power to limit free speech or silence political communication."

"Those fears have gained steam since the Egyptian government shut down Internet service during the recent citizen uprising in an effort to stop communication on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube."

"The Internet played a huge role in the Egyptian uprising," said CBN News International Correspondent George Thomas. "For example, between January 15 and January 25, close to 5 million Egyptians logged on and created an account on Facebook."-read it all-CBN

 


US Vetoes Stupid UNSC Resolution Condemning Israelis in Judea and Samaria

040209-consensus Team Obama has done the right thing,-- even if for the wrong reason, and vetoed a repugnant Islamofascist UNSC resolution that sought to condemn Israelis for building and living in their own land of Judea, Samaria, and their capital city of Jerusalem.

The U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice [John Bolton-you are missed!], did a good job in articulating a clueless and wrong reason for the veto based on falsehoods:

"Rice said the United States did not want the veto to be "misunderstood" as support for continued Israeli settlement construction."

[Support for Israel's legal right to live and build in their own land of Judea, Samaria, and their capital city of Jerusalem, would have have been the correct reason for exercising the veto.]

"We reject in the strongest terms the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity," Rice said. "For more than four decades, Israeli settlement activity in territories occupied in 1967 has undermined Israel’s security and corroded hopes for peace and stability in the region. Continued settlement activity violates Israel’s international commitments, devastates trust between the parties, and threatens the prospects for peace."

[All of what Rice said above is absolute hogwash]

[And we the people reject in the strongest terms your unwillingness acknowledge the legal legitimate rights of Israelis in their own historic homeland.]

[The right reason to have vetoed that dimwitted UNSC resolution would have been to stand with our ally Israel and acknowledge the legitimate rights of Israelis to build, live, and work in their own historic homeland.]

Acknowledge Israel's legitimate right to build, live in Aretz Israel.

Legal claim:

"According to international law, Israel has full right to try to populate the entire Land of Israel with dense Jewish settlement, and thus actualize the principles set by the League of Nations in the original Mandate Charter of San Remo in 1920,” wrote Einhorn.

The mandate’s introduction clearly identifies it as being “based on the international recognition of the historic ties between the Jewish People and the Land of Israel.” -read the rest here.

PLO [Palestinian Authority] Assets Un-Frozen

PLO [Palestinian Authority] now able to move financial assets in and out of the U.S.

In 2005 a Federal judge issued an order freezing the financial assets after the PLO failed to respond to a law suit filed by family members of Americans who were victims of a terrorist attack.

From CBN:

"The Palestinian Authority has settled a federal lawsuit in Rhode Island over the shooting deaths 15 years ago of a couple driving home from a wedding in Israel, according to court papers filed Monday."

"The documents don't reveal the terms of the settlement, and it's unclear how much, if any, money the Palestinian Authority offered to resolve the case."

"The settlement erases a $116 million default judgment entered against the Palestinian Authority and Palestine Liberation Organization for refusing to respond to the lawsuit. It also lifts a judge's 2005 order that had barred the Palestinian Authority from transferring or withdrawing assets in the United States."

The PLO's financial assets should already have been frozen because of its role as a terrorist organization.

In 2002 official PA documents were captured during Israel's counter-terror operation Defensive Shield, which proved that the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, [a U.S. recognized terrorist organization], and the Fatah which runs the Palestinian Authority, were both the same organization.

Things have not changed:

New Fatah Central Committee has ties to Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades-Camera 

"The Most Outrageous Financial Scandal in U.S. History"

"Palestinian Terrorism: Your Tax Dollars at Work"-Daled Amos

It is absolutely absurd how our own U.S. government actively funds jihad terrorism and propaganda with our tax dollars.

Equally unbelievable is how our own Defense Intelligence head, James Clapper, can be so utterly clueless with respect to the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Islamic Halal [Sharia] Meats in Fredericksburg

This is something new and regrettable for America's most historic city:

The first, and hopefully not long lasting, Halal [Sharia] market.

Freight_yard_032 

The Nile Market

Freight yard 030 

Also for sale were a Muslim prayer rug with built-in compass seen hanging on the wall.

So what's the big deal about Halal meats?

You owe it to yourself and everyone you know to watch this important video:

Some basic info on "Halal" meats via 4freedoms:

"It must be handled only by Muslims. Handling by any non-Muslim means the food has been "desecrated", as Muslims refer to non-Muslims as "kuffar", an insulting word to designate those who are inferior to Muslims."


"Proceeds of Halal food are being sent to terrorist organizations such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood - who are behind most terrorist attacks not only in the West but also against Christians, Sikhs, Hindus, Zoroastrians, Copts, and others, in their own countries."


"Muslims must chant "In the name of Allah; Allah is the Greatest," before slitting the throat of a fully conscious animal with a knife, and while facing the direction of Mecca."


"Halal meat is not approved by most of the top chefs in the world, as the meat is dry and does not absorb much flavour. In fact most Chef Schools warn you against using Halal meat in preparation of dishes."


"Most British and European supermarkets are selling labelled and unlabelled Halal meat to their customers without their knowledge."


"When you buy Halal food you are paying a fee to Halal Islamic experts."

 "Some of those experts are certified by the UOIF, the Union of the Islamic Organizations in France, which has strong and intimate ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a transnational political organization that supports terrorism."

"Nearly 60 percent of halal food is controlled by organizations belonging to the Muslim brotherhood."

 From CBN:

"Halal food, food prepared according to Islamic sharia law, is becoming an increasing part of the Western diet and has become a multi-billion dollar global industry."

"But CBN News has discovered that some of that money is funneled to groups tied to terrorism."

"Muslim halal food is creeping into the food chain not only in France, but worldwide, including the United States."

Also:

"So what's the big deal about halal food? To some Frenchmen who are seeing the growing Islamization of their country, it's a very big deal."

"Islam is introducing sharia into our society and that's not clear for people," Alain Wagner, a French activist with the Alliance Against Sharia, said. "When you see halal food in shops you think, 'Oh, it's just a kind of food.' No. it's sharia."

"According to some experts, a portion of the proceeds from halal food sales in France go to groups tied to terrorism."

"When a French consumer buys Halal food, part of the price paid goes as a fee to Halal Islamic experts. Some of those experts are certified by the UOIF, the Union of the Islamic Organizations in France, which the Simon Wiesenthal Center reports has strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a transnational political organization that supports terrorism."-be sure to read the entire report. 

One of the Muslim organizations that provides a "certification" service for the sale of Halal meats in America is the ISNA [Islamic Society of North America].

The ISNA has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Until recently, Al Safa, a major supplier of Halal meats in America, had certification for it's Halal meats provided by the ISNA.

A customer review of the Nile Market stated that frozen food meat from Al Safa could be ordered. 

The introduction of "Halal", or Sharia compliant foods in America, is part of the Islamization agenda Islamists have for this country. 

"Some say halal food is no different than Kosher, but Wagner disagrees."

"No, it's not like kosher food. Kosher-eating people are not preaching for the destruction of democracy. Halal is sharia. And we need to ban any sharia-related thing in our society," he said."

Celebration: Finally, True Democracy and Self-Determination!

After years of oppression, discrimination, genocide, and persecution by the government, the people will now have a goverment of their own based on "true democratic" beliefs and values.

No, not Egypt. We hope so. But for now,-- that remains to be seen.

But we stand in full support and solidarity with the southern Sudanese people, who last month voted overwhelmingly to separate from the north and establish their own country.

This is important news that has been completely overshadowed by protests in Egypt.

Power to the people of South Sudan!

South_sudan 

From a conversation Gary Lane had with a Southern Sudanese general:

"Most of the people in the South are Christian, but many of those who took up arms to resist the forced Islamization efforts of the northern government were animists."

"So, I asked Garang, a Christian, if the independent country that his people fought and died for (2 million lives were lost during 22 years of fighting) would be a Christian nation."

“No,” Garang told me. “It will be a secular nation that respects all religions. It must, if it is to be a true democracy.”

True democracy isn't just about having elections. It also means true "freedom of religion" as well as freedom of speech.

The current constitution of Egypt affirms Islam as the "state religion". Amended in 1980 stipulating that Islamic jurisprudence, [Islamic law], would be the principal source for legislation.

That makes true democracy impossible!

What changes will be forth coming in a new Egyptian government? And very importantly,  "who" will be running their government?

Even though the vast majority of Southern Sudanese people are Christian, they are committed to a "..secular nation that respects all religions.."

Egypt has a population that is about 10% Christian. The vast majority of the rest Muslim. Would they be committed to a "secular government that respects all religions"?

So far, all the latest efforts in democracy in Muslim majority countries have been failures.

Both Iraq and Afghanistan are prime examples. On Afghanistan, Andy McCarthy agrees.

Because of persecution, Iraqi Christians are now embracing the idea of separating from the rest of Iraq to form their own autonomous area for their own protection.

Give autonomy to Iraqi Christians.

The previous post details how the Afghan government is woefully amiss in some of the most important components of true democracy: Freedom of religion and speech.
