Top Chinese legislator meets with Hong Kong politicians

BEIJING, July 24 (Xinhua) — Top Chinese legislator Zhang Dejiang met with a delegation led by Starry Lee Wai-king, chairwoman of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong (DAB), in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing on Friday.

Zhang said the nation has strong momentum and sound development and is striving for the realization of the Chinese dream in line with President Xi Jinping‘s strategic layout for national renewal, known as the “four comprehensives”.

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region should seize opportunities and work together with the central government to achieve new development, he said.

It is hoped that the DAB always sticks to its patriotic stance and actively supports and cooperates with the Hong Kong Chief Executive and government in developing the economy and improving people’s living standards, Zhang said.

The DAB should continue to improve itself and further contribute to national sovereignty and Hong Kong’s long-term stability and prosperity.

Sharia run school has been rated good by U.K government

A secretive Muslim boarding school has been rated good by the government watchdog despite significant apparent failings.

The government’s ‘British Values’ requirement for schools seems again to have failed its intended purpose, as a Muslim faith boarding school which threatened its pupils with expulsion if they mix with outsiders was rated ‘good’ by the school inspectorate. The Institute of Islamic Education in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, goes so far to avoid the public eye it doesn’t have a website and refuses to speak to the press.

Despite that, Sky News has seen documents from the school for parents setting out the rules of the school, which lay out a remarkably strict routine that few would recognise as having the ‘British Values’ that most schools are now required to teach. Pupils are threatened with expulsion if they mix with outsiders, are taught to shun the media, and are banned from reading newspapers.

Because the school is run on strict adherence to Sharia law, the pupils are also banned from things that are considered ‘un-Islamic’ by the extremist interpretation of that law, including televisions, radios, and cameras. Pupils are forced to wear Islamic garments and are banned from having mobile phones or devices that can play music.

The government has been expressing concern for over a decade tht the school didn’t offer sex education or trips to its pupils – but still was content to award the secretive Islamic institution a ‘good’ rating.

The contrast to a number of Christian schools who have had their reputations trashed or worse, have been arbitrarily closed by the government in the past year for failing to teach these arbitrary values is remarkable. The Durham Free School was forced to close by the Department for Education in Feburary this year as despite strong academic results and a traditional learning environment after inspectors found the primary-school aged pupils were insufficiently knowledgeable about lesbianism, sex, and Islam.

After a government report on the school which said “Leaders are failing to prepare students for life in modern Britain”, the headmaster retorted “It feels like the school has been made a scapegoat. Durham is primarily white British so knowledge of other cultures is not as prevalent. But I don’t think the children are bigoted”.

Hamas ‘summer camp’ trains 25,000 Gazans as fighters,7340,L-4683772,00.html

The military wing of Hamas opened its new Gaza summer camp on Saturday, building on its successful winter military camp, which aims at providing basic combat training for 25,000 Palestinians in the embattled strip.

Hamas, the de facto power in Gaza, is reportedly engaged in indirect contacts with Israel to try to reach a long-term truce, but a year after last summer’s devastating 50-day war the militant movement has kept up the fighting talk.

“The goal of these military training camps is to train the vanguard for liberation: spiritually, intellectually and physically, to be ready and able to play its role in liberation,” said a statement by the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military wing.

The group said that participants, aged 15-60, would spend two weeks being “trained in military techniques and in firing live ammunition” as well as “first aid and rescue techniques.”

As with all the brigades’ activities the camps will be conducted out of public and media sight.

Hamas has long run summer camps devoted to sport and study of the Koran in Gaza, but over the winter the al-Qassam brigades launched a new kind of camp, giving military training to youth.

Under the guise of a program named “Pioneers of the Resistance,” Palestinian youths – aged 15 to 21 – have undergone intensive military training, including exercises simulating operations of Hamas naval commandos.

The participants of the militant camp were also trained in firing sniper rifles, using the portraits of Israeli leaders for targets. The Palestinian youth simulated attacks on Israeli destinations through model terror tunnels, meant to recreate the experience of infiltrating Israeli territory.

Recently Hamas claimed that demand for a place in the camp had exceeded the planned quota and they were forced to make changes to accept all the applicants. The group’s leader Ismail Haniyeh attended a graduation ceremony for the thousands of future Hamas militants earlier this year.

Human rights activists condemned the camps as a forced militarization of Gazan society and a violation of children’s rights.

Brushing off the criticism, the brigades are repeating the exercise with the summer camp, while raising the upper age limit to 60.

This Is What a Feminist Looks Like

My apologies. I meant, this is what two feminists look like:

WNBA superstar Brittney Griner — and her WNBA star fiancee Glory Johnson — were both arrested for allegedly attacking each other in Phoenix yesterday … TMZ Sports has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us cops were called to Griner’s home around 4:30 PM on Wednesday . . .
Both women were arrested and booked by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office for assault and disorderly conduct. Griner and Johnson were released around 4 AM on Thursday.
Griner plays for the Phoenix Mercury.
The two got engaged last August and had been planning to get married next month in Phoenix. No word if the wedding is still on. . . .
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, Brittney told cops the two had been fighting for days and were having serious “relationship issues.”
As for the specific incident, cops say there were several people at the home when Brit and Glory began to argue — and the fight turned physical.
Cops say Brittney admitted to throwing a dog bowl at the wall — and then the two began fighting.
Glory’s sister eventually called police because people “couldn’t get them pulled apart” and she didn’t want anyone to get hurt.
When cops arrived, officers say Brittney had several cuts — and a bite wound. Glory was bleeding from the lip.

Celebrity lesbian damage control:

WNBA superstar Brittney Griner says her engagement to Glory Johnson is STILL ON … despite their domestic violence arrests this morning … TMZ Sports has learned.
Griner’s attorney Michael Cantor tells us … “The last few months have been an extremely stressful time for Brittney and Glory. They will continue to work through these hardships together.”
As we previously reported, both Griner and Johnson — who’s also in the WNBA — were arrested for assault in Arizona this week after cops say they attacked each other during a heated argument.
The couple has been engaged since last year and are scheduled to get married on May 8th.
Griner’s attorney did not say if the two will be pushing back the wedding date in light of the arrests — but says the two are determined to “handle this family matter.”
Cantor adds, “Glory and Brittney sincerely apologize for the distraction this has caused their families, respective teams, the WNBA, sponsors and fans.”

You will notice that the word “lesbian” does not appear anywhere in TMZ’s reporting about this (alleged) crime, for the same reason that news coverage does not include the word “lesbian” when female teachers molest their female students. That is to say, “lesbian” and “gay” are words that are only ever used by the media in a positive context, or in stories about gays and lesbians being victims of homophobia.

According to the liberal media, all homosexuals are virtuous and innocent and thus, when they commit crimes, the magic words “gay” or “lesbian” are never to be used. This rule was stretched to the limit last year, when Walter Lee Williams, a Ph.D. in anthropology who was “an eminent professor of gender and sexuality studies” at the University of Southern California, pleaded guilty in federal court to traveling the world to pursue sex with boys as young as 9. You see, Professor Williams was co-editor of a 1997 book, Overcoming Heterosexism and Homophobia, and also co-edited the 2003 book Gay and Lesbian Rights in the United States: A Documentary History.

Common sense says: “Hey, there’s a dot here and a dot there and over here’s another dot, so maybe they’re . . . connected?”

In 2015, however, common sense is a hate crime, so feminists — who demand stringent enforcement of the Violence Against Women Act(VAWA) as a way to punish men — are notably silent about violence against women when this involves two celebrity lesbians. We are not supposed to notice this, just like we are not supposed to notice how prevalent lesbianism is in the world of female athletics. (Really, are there any heterosexual women playing NCAA Division I sports?) Meanwhile, the reality of lesbian domestic violence has some lesbians straining to claim that this isn’t like, y’know, the bad kind of domestic violence that men do. No, what happened with Griner and Johnson “is fairly common and much less likely to include sexual or emotional violence and is not about controlling a partner.”

Also, while male violence against women requires its own federal law with special punitive authority, “Communities, Not Police, Are Our Best Bet for Ending LGBTQ Domestic Violence.” In other words, don’t call the cops when a lesbian is beating up her girlfriend, because that might make the “community” look bad. Remember this 2012 headline?

A Victim of Racism, Sexism, Homophobia
and Her Violent Lesbian Ex-Girlfriend

WNBA star Jennifer Lacy was the victim of a frightening attack by her former teammate and ex-girlfriend Chamique Holdsclaw.

Well, how dare you notice that they are both black, female and gay? In terms of feminist “intersectionality,” these women are both oppressed victims, and therefore neither of them can be responsible. Blame the white racist heteropatriarchy!

Nobody has suggested banning crazy lesbians from the WNBA because that would pretty much be the end of the WNBA. Finally, a few inspirational words from Toni Morrison:

“I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager
in the back. And I want to see a white man
convicted for raping a black woman.”

That’s some Nobel Prize-winning feminist inspiration, my friends!

Lesbian Divorce Gets Nasty

One positive thing about legalizing gay marriage is that it gives the rest of us the opportunity laugh about gay celebrity divorces:

Brittney Griner shockingly filed to annul her marriage with Glory Johnson just 28 days after the same-sex couple wed and one day after Johnson announced she was pregnant by using donated sperm. At the time, Griner cited “fraudulent statements” made by Johnson and pressure into marriage “under duress” in the original June 5 paperwork. . . .
The amended documents reveal that Johnson was texting an ex-boyfriend while the two were engaged. The amended documents also detail Griner “recently discovering” Johnson’s “sexual relationship with a man” while the couple was dating.
Griner’s claims of Johnson’s unfaithfulness from the court documents are detailed in full below. . . .

Petitioner [Griner] just recently learned that Respondent {Johnson} was not completely faithful during their courtship leading up to the engagement. Respondent intentionally concealed her sexual relations with a man to whom she was simultaneously in a relationship with from 2013 to July 2014; said relationship between Respondent and this man was unbeknownst to Petitioner. Petitioner had no idea that Respondent was sexually and emotionally involved with another individual at the same time she was sexually and emotionally involved with Respondent. Had Petitioner been aware of Respondent’s relationship with another person, she would have never proposed, let alone marry Respondent. Upon information and belief, Respondent not only deceived Petitioner, but also the man to who Respondent was in a relationship with.

Griner contends she was pressured into marriage as well as agreeing to start a family with Johnson, who announced she’s having twins from in-vitro fertilization using donated sperm; Griner has no biological relationship to the unborn children. A motion filed on June 29 details Johnson’s request that Griner pay $20,000 per month in spousal support in addition to a $10,000 advancement toward attorney fees.

These two women are saying about each other the same thing every divorced guy says about his ex-wife: “That evil bitch is crazy!”

(via Memeorandum.)

Remember: This Is What a Feminist Looks Like.

UPDATE: Consider this story:

On Friday the 13th of January 1989, Catherine [Rouse], former manager of Lysistrata — the celebrated feminist restaurant that existed for five years (1977-1982) in Madison, Wisconsin — took a gun purchased a few days before, drove to the house of her ex-lover Joan [Kebick], who had recently ended their relationship, and shot her three times, dead. . . . She did not find Joan’s new lover. She then drove home, answered the phone. It was her sister, a university dean of students who, worried, had set up emergency counseling for her. Catherine said, “Thank you very much,” did not mention having shot Joan, hung up the phone, and shot herself, dead.

That account is from Professor Claudia Card’s 1995 book, Lesbian Choices. Professor Card also tells the story of Annette Green who, on Oct. 30, 1988, “shot and killed Ivonne Julio, her lover of eleven years, at their home in Palm Beach County, Florida.” Green pleaded self-defense, claiming her partner had battered her, but was convicted of second-degree murder. Professor Card, herself a lesbian feminist, cites two books, Naming the Violence: Speaking Out About Lesbian Battering by Kerry Lobel (1986) and Violent Betrayal: Partner Abuse in Lesbian Relationships by Claire M. Renzetti (1992). Curious readers might also be interested in Woman-to-Woman Sexual Violence: Does She Call It Rape?by Lori B. Girshick (2002). In that book, Professor Girschick “discusses how the lesbian community has silenced survivors of sexual violence due to myths of lesbian utopia.”

This myth of lesbians enjoying conflict-free relationships has become a sort of propaganda deployed by feminists who wish to blame males for everything everything wrong in heterosexual relationships.

Anyone who knows anything about human nature knows better than to believe these things, but just as the gay-rights movement has sought to suppress negative information about the LGBT community, feminists have sought to suppress positive information about heterosexual males. This has produced a distorted perception of the world which, all things considered amounts to a propaganda of hatred, which Professor Daphne Patai called Heterophobia. However, when anyone — particularly a heterosexual male — tries to balance this one-side propaganda, he is invariably accused of sexism and homophobia: “How dare you suggest some women are not entirely sane?” or, “How dare you suggest some homosexuals are not entirely honest?”

You will be accused of promoting ignorant stereotypes, you see. The only stereotypes acceptable to liberals are ones that disparage men, particularly white heterosexual men. Liberals hate white heterosexual men the way Nazis hated Jews.

If it weren’t for hateful lies, how could Democrats ever win elections?

Atheist mum bans children from school trip to church and synagogue – and says she may stop them learning RE

An atheist mum has stopped her children from going on school trips to churches, mosques and synagogues because she does not want religion forced on them.

Claire Baker, 32, says she believes an atheist upbringing is as much a choice as being brought up with a religion – which she does not want forced on her son and daughter.

Instead she would prefer her children Benn, 12, and Katie, eight, to learn first aid, because it would be more useful.

Claire says she feels the same way about all religions – and finds it offensive that people preach in public places or go door-to-door trying to convert people.

The mum is also considering removing her children from RE lessons at Elmwood Primary School in Middleton and Middleton Technology College.

She has refused to be a Godmother to a relative’s child and says she believes people with no faith should not have to eat Halal or Kosher prepared food.

The mum spoke out after receiving a letter from the primary school about trips to places of worship.

She posted her comments about the school trip on Facebook it provoked a huge debate – with some agreeing it is a parent’s right to choose and others saying it is important to understand others’ beliefs.

Claire, who lives with Benn, Katie, and partner Craig Livesey, 47, in Middleton and is a support worker for adults with learning difficulties, said: “From a young age I’ve always been an atheist.

“I chose non-religious schools for my children on purpose so they can make their own minds up when they’re older if they want to practice a religion.

“I don’t think RE should be on the curriculum – it should be replaced with First Aid, which is more useful in life.

“I was shocked to receive a letter for a school trip to a mosque, church and synagogue.

“I absented my child and have been debating for the best part of a year whether to take my children out of RE lessons.

“I respect that people choose to christen their children but I would also like them to respect that I have no interest in religion.

“Also why should I have to take my children to get baptised to get them into good schools? “It’s all about choice – I don’t go banging on peoples’ doors or preaching in town centres about it.

“People have accused me of being racist, but this is about all religions, not race.”

he M.E.N. was unable to contact Elmwood Primary School for a comment.

Current UK law states that all pupils should follow a curriculum which promotes spritual, moral and cultural development’ – of which RE is essential.

Government guidance also states the subject ‘promotes community cohesion’ and ‘become responsible citizens.”

But parents are able to withdraw children from RE lessons.

The rules state:

“The use of the right to withdraw should be at the instigation of parents (or pupils themselves if they are aged 18 or over), and it should be made clear whether it is from the whole of the subject or specific parts of it. No reasons need be given.

“Parents have the right to choose whether or not to withdraw their child from RE without influence from the school, although a school should ensure parents or carers are informed of this right and are aware of the educational objectives and content of the RE syllabus. In this way, parents can make an informed decision.

“Where parents have requested that their child is withdrawn, their right must be respected, and where RE is integrated in the curriculum, the school will need to discuss the arrangements with the parents or carers to explore how the child’s withdrawal can be best accommodated.

“If pupils are withdrawn from RE, schools have a duty to supervise them, though not to provide additional teaching or to incur extra cost. Pupils will usually remain on school premises.”

Canada’s Immigration Minister Celebrated Eid With “Friends” Who Support Child Marriage

He’s doled out millions of dollars to organizations trying to end early marriages, and championed new Canadian laws that, among other things, established a new national minimum age of 16 and criminalized “conduct” surrounding early and forced marriages.

When the laws were enacted last month, Alexander issued a statement saying the legislation sent “a strong message to those in Canada, and those who wish to come to Canada, that we will not accept the practice of cultural traditions that deprive individuals of their human rights.”

Fast-forward to last Sunday, which marked the end of a month of fasting for Muslims around the world. Alexander decided to celebrate Eid-al-Fitr at an Islamic centre in his Pickering, Ont., riding.

The co-founder and resident Alim — or Islamic scholar — of the Al Mahdi centre is Syed Mohammad Zaki Baqri. He’s also the founder of The Council of Islamic Guidance, which runs the Al Mahdi centre.

Baqri has urged parents to “get their children married early in order to form a pious and pure society.” On his website, he writes that “the encouragement of early marriages” is Islam’s solution to today’s “sexual society.”


Muslim Imam Reveals A Terrifying Secret About Mosques In One Of America’s Largest Cities

A moderate imam formerly based in the Boston area recently reflected on being ousted from his position at one of the area’s most influential Muslim centers after warning about a radical shift in its theology for almost a decade.

In an interview with Fox News published Tuesday, Imam Talal Eid said increasing radicalism at the Islamic Center of New England, where he served from 1982 through 2005, pitted him against the center’s board of directors in the late 1990s. Eid had been in charge of religious teaching at the center’s mosques, but was ultimately forced out by Dr. Abdul-badi Abousamra, once a respected endocrinologist and president of the 1,500-member center. Abousamra now resides in Doha, Qatar, and is on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s terror watch list.


“At times, I was fearful for my safety,” said Eid, a former member of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom who now leads a Toledo, Ohio, mosque. “When I would stand up for what I believed in, and there was a clash, you see how I could be scared.” The three mosques associated with the Islamic Center of New England have all had connections to several known and suspected terrorists, including Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev–the brothers responsible for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing–and Usaama Rahim, the 26-year-old man slain by officers earlier this year after brandishing a knife in a parking lot and allegedly plotting to behead police.

Abousamra’s son, Ahamad, a graduate of Northeastern University, left the U.S. and began training in Middle Eastern terror camps and aiding al-Qaeda, according to law enforcement officials. The younger Abousamra was being investigated for terror-related charges which led to an indictment, but he left the U.S. altogether for Syria in 2006. It is believed he now runs the social media operation for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The elder Abousamra, who has a $50,000 bounty on his head, is rumored to have died in a recent airstrike. But the FBI did not confirm that. “Although aware of the reports, the United States government has not yet confirmed any change in the status of Ahmad Abousamra,” the FBI told Fox News. “He will remain on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List until the time a confirmation in change of status is made.” The outlet also breaks down what happened to Eid’s successor at the center, Muhammad Hafiz Masood:

A year after Eid left, Masood fled the U.S. after being arrested for visa fraud. He resurfaced in Pakistan, where he is now spokesman for the Pakistani terrorist organization Jamaat-ud-Dawah, a group founded by his brother, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed. Saeed also founded Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistani terrorist group behind the 2008 coordinated bombings in Mumbai that killed 164 and wounded hundreds more. Law enforcement sources say the two groups are one and the same.

As for Eid, he hopes more like-minded people will speak up against the extremists. “Do we need to wait for a tragedy to happen?” Eid asked. “We need to allow more moderate Muslim voices so that life can go smoothly in our society.”

Immigration Minister Chris Alexander gets defensive at his excellent Islamic Centre adventure

A very odd press release referencing an incident that occurred on Eid at the Al Mahdi Islamic Centre in Pickering has come to my attention. The press release refers specifically to keeping their “pulpits and podiums.” sacred, in light of the unfortunate incident, you can read it in the document below.


To make a long story short Chris Alexander was invited to speak at the Shia Eid event.

Some of the Shia were happy to see the invitation extended as Chris Alexander has greased the entry of certain Khomeinists into Canada for some bizarre reason.

Alexander was no doubt happy to accept because this is an election year and what harm could a little vote whoring do among crazed Khomeinists?

Boy was he wrong.

Mullah Zaqi Baqri, an absolute lunatic moderate Muslim, spoke just before Alexander and evidently was unaware that the minister had been invited to speak.

Feeling at ease among friends Baqri’s sermon was a typical example of Islam in multicultural Canada, Prime Minister Harper was denounced as a Poodle and anti-Muslim bigot.

This was not in Alexander’s plans… In defending Harper our Chris attacked Iran’s ranking Mullah Khamenei, the fallout was swift with shouting matches and denunciations all round…

I will let you read the following eye-witness account circulating in local forums of Chris Alexander’s Excellent Shia Adventure below.

But first… I have to ask:

Do our politicians expect us to sit idly by while they entertain these madmen?

Madmen that their lunatic immigration and multiculturalism policies foisted on an unsuspecting public?

The author of the letter below is an activist linked closely to Al Quds Day and the Al Mahdi Centre itself a major supporter of the annual Jew-hate festival.

Do our politicians expect us to support this madness?

Who gave them permission to establish this “New Normal” in our country?

“Salamun alaykum,

Belated Eid Mubarak to you all and may Allah (SWT) accept all our good deeds in the month of Ramadan and make us the way He wants us for the rest of the months, inshaAllah…..Ameen.

Let me share my thoughts as a witness to the unfortunate event that unfolded at the CIG Eid prayer. There were three distinct events that took place but before narrating them in sequence let me share the Conservative strategy that many of you are well aware of. By the way this Conservative strategy is nothing new, it is age old but still it  works every single time it is used against us, so what is this strategy……….it is “divide and conquer”, the conservatives have mastered these strategy, they are cunning and shrewd in exploiting our differences, pitting one group against another and stroking division within the community, using handful of dissident Muslims among us, that will attack their other Muslim brothers, in the name of secularism, and praise the Conservative government. In a nutshell, this is what the Conservative Immigration Minister Chris Alexander was able to accomplished at the CIG Eid Prayer on Saturday 18th July at CIG.

So let’s recap the three distinct events that took place at the CIG Eid prayer, the first event was the powerful Eid sermon of Mawlana Baqari, in his speech he covered all aspects of a true Muslim, he spoke about our social aspect, spiritual aspect, current events, and politics. He united the masses against Harper’s sinister evil ideology of divisive and anti-Muslim bigotry. He called Harper as “poodle” and mobilized the congregation to vote Harper out of office in the coming election. Unfortunately the irony of the matter with respect to Mawlana Baqari’s sermon was that he had no inkling that the next speaker in line was Conservative Immigration Minister Chris Alexander and all along the minister was listening to Mawlana Baqari’s speech.

Post Mawlana Baqri’s sermon, Br. Mazhar introduced the Minister and allotted him 4 to 5 minutes to speak on Immigration issue but hearing the comparison of Harper to poodle and call to boot Harper out of office, Chris immediately switched his speech from Immigration issue to Conservative hard core evil strategy of “divide and conquer”.

So the second main event was the Immigration Minister Chris Alexander 20 minute speech where on one hand he eulogized Imam Ali (AS) while on the other hand he accused Islamic Republic of Iran as an oppressive, brutal, and dictatorial regime. By doing this he isolated and drew lines between the two groups “Mawlai” and “Fikree”. Earlier Mawlana Baqari in his speech targeted Prime Minister Steven Harper and so the logical equivalent thing for Chris to do was to target Islamic Republic of Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani instead he deliberately chose to target Rahbar Ayatullah Khamenei (HA), since the Conservative minister knew that targeting Hassan Rouhani will not yield the desire result, it will not divide this community, division in this community is only possible by attacking their religious leader Rahbar Khamenei (HA)and so he targeted Rahbar and obviously he was booed by the public for that blunder.

Post Chris’s speech, Mawlana Baqari returned back to podium to do damage control, He tried his best to rebut Chris’s accusation but in my humble opinion the damage was done and this was clearly visible by the third incident.

The third unfortunate incident was the division within the united community, one dissident from our community went to the Conservative Minister and apologized on behalf of the community, then this individual started swearing against Rahbar Khamenei (HA), against Imam Khomeini(RA) and against Shaheed Arif Hussaini (RA). This twisted soul kept repeating his swearing against Maraja’s, this swearing was heard and attested by Br. Asad Jaffri and few other brothers. Seeing nobody is stopping this nonsense, Br. Munir responded and then there was raised voices, discord and division within the community. That said, the rumour making round is that Br. Munir started the commotion but the fact of the matter is, it was not Br. Munir but it was this dissident that started swearing against our respected Maraja’s and Br. Munir reacted to this blunder.

A diverse community united by Mawlana Baqari with his Eid sermon was divided in groups and segments hurling and accusing each other, easily falling for the Neocon strategy of divide and conquer initiated by the pro Zionist Conservative Immigration Minister Chris Alexander.

There are few questions that comes to mind, first and foremost is, why was this pro Zionist minister invited to the religious gathering, few years ago there was the US counsel general that requested permission to speak at one of the Eid prayer at CIG and Mawlana Baqari categorically denied his request stating this is strictly religious ceremony and so why did the executives failed to follow the modus operandi set by Mawlana Baqari, they could have denied Conservative minister podium by citing the same reason.

Br. Mazhar while introducing this minister said, the minister has helped us to arranged visas for visiting Aalim’s and we are working with him on extending immigration to the refugee’s. So for few visa’s and few refugee’s, are we going to hand over our sacred pulpit to the pro Zionist Conservatives and allow him to divide our community, is it fair to hand over our sacred pulpit to the pro Zionist Conservatives to ignite fire, create discord and division within our community.

Second more important question is, why was Mawlana Baqari kept in the dark about this invitation. You see when we organized small majalis in our home and we invite Mawlana Baqari or any other Mawlana for that matter to recite majalis and if we have extended invitation to our Sunni friends to attend the majalis, as a courtesy we always let the Mawlana know prior to reciting majalis, that there will be Sunni Muslims in the audience, that way Mawlana is well informed to communicate the message without offending them, here we have Conservative Immigration Minister invited to speak at the Eid event and Mawlana has no inkling whatsoever, he is kept in the dark, he has no knowledge whatsoever about this speaker, this lack of communication has cost us our unity, it has cost all the believer’s pain, anguish and agony to hear pro Zionist Conservatives using our sacred pulpit to accused Islamic Republic of Iran as oppressive, brutal, and freedom suppressor.

The least we could do now is, the executives responsible for this blunder should apologize to the community and a well-documented process to deny request to all the pro Zionist including those that wants to create discord and disunity among our community should be put in place immediately to avoid such disaster in the very near future.”

EASTERN CAPE: 22 circumcision deaths, custom questioned–20150710

The relevance of the tradition of circumcision is being questioned in the Eastern Cape. This as about 22 young boys have died since the start of winter in the Eastern Cape.

The Maphetshana family is grieving their 17 year old son was left for dead at an initiation school. His mother, Nomihlayethu Maphetshana, was denied access to him even after he was brought home.

Nomihlayethu says: “We are not allowed to see our children because we are women. My son was burnt with plastics, stabbed at his arms , beaten up all over the body and these people claim they did not see all that torture. My son was brought here and they denied me access in my own house and now I have lost my child.”

An emotional Deputy Minister of Traditional Affairs Obed Bapela visited the bereaved families.

“I am a supporter of culture myself but if culture is going to kill our children I will say no it cannot be. I really send my condolences to the family and to all other families that have lost their children , here in the Eastern Cape and elsewhere.” Bapela says.

Child rights organisations have also called for the arrest of those who abduct young boys and circumcise them.

At least 145 others are in hospital some in a critical condition from botched circumcisions.

Two former Gitmo prisoners arrested in Belgium on terror charges

Two former detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba were arrested by Belgian police in a counterterrorism operation targeting a recruiting network for al Qaeda in Syria.

They were arrested Wednesday night along with three others as they were about to break into a house to raise funds in the town of Hoboken, near Antwerp, a senior Belgian counterterrorism official told CNN.

“We have dismantled a serious recruiting network for Syria,” the official told CNN.

One of the former Guantanamo Bay detainees was Moussa Zemmouri, 37, a Moroccan national born in Antwerp, Belgian federal prosecutors announced Friday. The other was an Algerian identified as Soufiane A., who prosecutors believe spent time in Syria.

Both have been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist group and all five have been charged with attempted armed robbery.

Zemmouri was released from Guantanamo in 2005 and authored a book “Innocent at Guantanamo” after returning to Belgium. His case was featured prominently by the UK Muslim prisoner advocacy group CAGE, which has long maintained that he has no links to terrorism.

According to a 2003 detainee assessment file posted by the WikiLeaks website, Zemmouri was transferred to U.S. custody after he was detained by Pakistani police when fleeing Afghanistan after the beginning of the U.S. bombing campaign in autumn 2001.

The document alleged he had trained in the al Qaeda-sponsored Derunta training camp in Khost, Afghanistan. It said “sensitive reporting also indicates that detainee is a high-ranking member of the Theological Commission of the Moroccan Islamic Fighting Group (MIFG).”

According to the Belgian official, Zemmouri was put under observation after his return to Belgium. Belgian security services suspect he provided theological encouragement to several former members of the al Qaeda affiliated MIFG who left to fight jihad in Syria after they completed prison sentences in Belgian jails.

The official said there was no indication the group was plotting an attack in Belgium.

Efforts to immediately reach an attorney for Zemmouri were unsuccessful.

Belgian officials know of the identity of more than 300 extremists who have traveled from Belgium to join jihadi groups in Syria.

Palestinian ‘Refugees’ to Canada Return to Gaza – for a Pool…

A Family moves from Canada to Gaza. You’ll never guess why

The hyperbole predominates the media,  and is meant to perpetuate the myth of the eternal victimhood of the Palestinian people.  Gaza is an “open-air prison”. Gaza is a  “concentration camp”.

Its never been true.

In November, 2008, the al-Aloul family left Gaza and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia.

Last fall, they moved back.

KPBS tells their story: Gaza to Canada And Back To Gaza: Why A Family Chose to Return

For those of you who still buy into the “Open air prison” meme- Ihab al-Aloul, his wife Somaya and  their six children moved to Gaza to improve and upgrade their standard of living.

One benefit for the al-Alouls in Gaza is a private swimming pool. On a recent afternoon, workers installed a new lawn around the pool patio. The squares of grass were grown on a local sod farm. One drawback: the irrigation water is salty – much of the tap water in Gaza is brackish. Aloul says it’s not the best for the grass but “it’s not killing that much.”

In Canada, the family’s apartment had no yard, let alone a pool.

The pool is part of what is essentially a weekend home for Aloul. His father bought the land, and Aloul built the home and pool more than a decade ago.

Below the flat rooftop, the Mediterranean sparkles blue, just a few blocks away. Bright café umbrellas line the beach and a Ferris wheel rises high.

Feminist Tumblr: ‘Queer Artist’ Loves ‘Awesome Blasphemous’ Dildos

Melanie Thibodeau is a 23-year-old graduate of Emily Carr University “a public post-secondary University located on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Established in 1925 as the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts, it is named after Canadian artist Emily Carr.” What kind of lessons did Ms. Thibodeau learn there?

Melanie Thibodeau (b. 1992) is a Vancouver-based queer artist whose practice is focused around ideas about the body, having a body, and the ways in which materials and colour can affect one’s body. Their work is interdisciplinary, focusing on sculpture, painting, and installation, and they have previously worked with topics surrounding nostalgia and emotion; gender, sexuality, and feminism; and comfort vs. discomfort. Thibodeau’s recent investigations have been in conversation with research surrounding the notion of the fetish/fetishism, and the etymology and usages of that word.

Her “queer” art is about “gender, sexuality, and feminism”? This may explain what she posts on her Tumblr blog, such as spray-painting “Cuntz 4 Ever” and “Pussy Power” on the wall and exposing her breasts.

Ms. Thibodeau’s NSFW ideas about feminist art include such works as“Clitoris” and “Dildo” and “Fellatio.” She actually worked at a sex-toy store, where she described a “slow day at work. 7 customers in 12 hrs, and there’s no internet so i just read theory and wrote and got anxious about existing. i’ve changed so much, and have too many feels and theory and porn make me cry sometimes. . . . i need more humans in my life.” She once spent more than five hours getting a tattoo of a woman tied up in bondage gear with the mottos “Safety” and “Consent.”

Obviously, Ms. Thibodeau is the avant-garde of 21st-century queer art —posting nude selfies on her Tumblr blog and posing with her girlfriend, “Satan With a Vagina.” One hesitates to imagine the “performance art” possibilities she and her girlfriend may have in mind:

“My girlfriend and I received these lovely
jesus-on-the-cross dildos yesterday from
Divine Interventions. Check them out!
So many awesome blasphemous toys.
We are very happy with them!”

Crucifix dildos and “Satan With a Vagina”? Doesn’t this queer art make you wonder who’s in charge of Feminist Tumblr?

“Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with the demon. . . . He is a liar. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. The attack is psychological, Damien, and powerful. So don’t listen to him. Remember that — do not listen.”
The Exorcist (1973)

Did you know Satanists claim abortion is “free exercise” of their religion?

UPDATE: Ms. Thibodeau’s girlfriend, “Satan With a Vagina,” is also quite enthusiastic about the crucifix dildo:

“The silicone is so soft…thank you Jesus!”

This sacrilegious sex toy (7-½ inches long, 1-¾ inches diameter) retails for $65, but I doubt this queer feminist duo paid full retail. You see, “Satan With a Vagina” works at a sex-toy store in Vancouver, and here’s the store’s description:

At Sweet Adult Boutique our aim is to provide you with only the highest quality adult merchandise, lubricants and massage oils. Our staff are knowledgeable, attentive to your needs and your level of comfort in an adult boutique. . . .
Located one block east of Granville St., on the south side corner of W Broadway and Hemlock, Sweet Adult Boutique features an open, brightly lit and friendly atmosphere where shopping for adult merchandise is always adventurous and fun.

This “friendly atmosphere” employs Alicia a/k/a “Satan With a Vagina.” APortuguese immigrant with blue hair, tattoos and facial piercings, Alicia is on a “kinky journey”:

I went to a bondage class last night. I got suspended, tied up, thrown around…I took a beating. I really let my inner sub come out and play. It was incredibly fun and liberating….I still feel like I haven’t quite returned to my every day consciousness yet, and I’m happy to bask in the afterglow.
I feel like I’m learning and evolving more every day. I’m want to start tracking my thoughts, feelings and desires through this process. From now on I’m going to try my darnedest to tag all my BDSM-related posts “kinky journey”.

Less than two weeks after that “incredibly fun and liberating” experience, Alicia said she had reached her “breaking point” and described herself as “so mentally ill that I need drugs to remain functional.”

In other words, Feminist Tumblr.
