unlike those beholden to the failed ideology of multiculturalism, some countries don’t mess around when it comes to terrorism. Japan, for instance, has no qualms whatsoever monitoring mosques, halal restaurants, and all Islamic organizations and community centers.
What’s more, Japan’s Supreme Court upheld the government’s blanket surveillance policy even after being sued. The Independent reports:
The court struck down the second appeal by Japanese Muslim plaintiffs against what they perceive as an unconstitutional invasion of their privacy and freedom of religion.
A 2010 leak of 114 police files revealed nationwide surveillance of Japanese Muslims. The files revealed that Muslim places of worship, halal restaurants and Islam-related organisations across the capital, Tokyo, were being monitored.
A group of 17 Japanese Muslims, mostly from Middle Eastern and North African countries, decided to sue the Japanese government for infringing on their constitutional rights.
[…] The Supreme Court finally dismissed the case after two appeals on 31 May. The plaintiffs were awarded ¥90 million ($880,000) as compensation due to violation of their privacy by the leak.
The presiding judges only focused on the actual leaking of police files which had begun circulating on the Internet. When it comes to profiling and conducting surveillance of the country’s Muslims and Islamic institutions, however, the court upheld the government’s policy as a “necessary and inevitable” safeguard against Islamic terrorism.
It’s fascinating — the left loves to embrace and even emulate other cultures until said culture stands up to Islam.
A woman has been convicted of stalking after she created hundreds of hoax crime reports to harass her ex-boyfriend and his new partners.
During her vendetta, Sandra Danevska sent 134 bogus online reports, which saw the Metropolitan Police create 170 dispatch logs.
Her actions led to her former boyfriend being implicated as a suspect for rape, acid attacks and stabbings – and the two women he went on to date being subjected to a traumatic online campaign.
Danevska, 38, of Winslow Road, Hammersmith, was found guilty on Wednesday of three counts of stalking involving serious alarm or distress.
She was also convicted of two counts of perverting the course of justice.
The court heard how Danevska and “victim one” had dated for a number of weeks around 10 years ago, and had another brief relationship in 2013 before he said he wanted to go back to simply being friends.
Danevska then subjected “victim one”, a 45-year-old man, and the two women who he later went out with to repeated stalking and harassment.
She set up bogus social media profiles and fake email addresses in her ex-boyfriend’s name to send threatening and malicious messages to other people, and used various mobile phones to make dozens of silent calls and send text messages to him.
In 2014, Danevska began sending “victim one” almost daily emails from unknown accounts commenting on things he had done during the day, leading him to fear he was being followed.
She created 134 hoax online crime reports using the details of 60 different people to implicate him as a suspect in crimes – which led to police visiting his home 42 times and his workplace 10 times in response.
Among the many bogus allegations were claims that various made-up victims had been stabbed, raped or had acid thrown in their faces.
“Victim two”, a 34-year-old woman, went out with Danevska’s former boyfriend in 2010 and also became the target of her campaign, receiving numerous threatening and malicious text messages and emails.
Danevska set up several social media accounts and email addresses in her name, which again were used to send threatening messages to other people.
“Victim three” had also been a girlfriend of “victim one” – having dated him between October 2012 and October 2013.
Police visited her address several times responding to reports of crime, supposedly created by her.
She also received numerous malicious messages from Danevska sent from various social media accounts, some of which commented on her movements during the day.
A police investigation into the harassment began in 2011, but Danevska had covered her tracks so well that police were unable to identify her as the culprit.
It was only in 2015 that a series of bogus social media profiles were traced to addresses across London.
Danevska was employed as a nanny by the householders at the addresses, and police obtained a warrant to search her home in May 2015.
They seized SIM cards, computer equipment and a diary in which she had noted the movements of “victim one”, and in September 2015, she was charged with the offences.
Danevska will be sentenced on Friday, August 26.
Detective Constable Dean Puzey, of Hammersmith and Fulham CID, said: “This woman’s actions caused her victims unimaginable distress.
“Danevska stalked multiple victims and used social media and the police crime reporting system to make their lives intolerable.
“Her ex-boyfriend, an entirely innocent man, found himself a suspect for rape, stabbings and acid attacks – the impact on his life in particular was horrendous.
“Her actions also caused a massive waste of police time. Throughout Danevska’s campaign, 17 of London’s 32 boroughs responded to bogus reports of crime as a result of her malicious calls; her vendetta was a huge drain on police resources.
“Thankfully cases of multiple stalking are very rare and, despite all her efforts to avoid detection, we have finally been able to bring her to justice.”
KNOXVILLE — A former middle school teacher pleaded guilty Thursday to luring a 14-year-old student into a monthslong sexual tryst, but she won’t be going to jail.
In a plea deal brokered between defense attorney Gregory P. Isaacs and Knox County Assistant District Attorney General Rachel Russell, Serena Milan, 28, received a probationary sentence.
Milan received 10 years probation on six felony counts of sexual battery by an authority figure and 22 felony counts of exploitation of a minor.
She also must register as a sex offender and remain on the registry for 20 years.
Her victim’s mother, who is suing Milan, Knox County Schools and a former coach at the school, approved the deal, according to statements made in Knox County Criminal Court Thursday.
Milan faced a 29-count indictment filed after an investigation by Knoxville Police Department Investigator Patty Tipton after the boy’s mother learned of the relationship, which spanned five months in 2015. The charges including six counts of statutory rape by an authority figure for specific sex acts as well as several charges of sexual exploitation of a minor related to “sexting” between the pair.
Milan was working as an English “intervention” instructor at Northwest Middle School when, in February 2015, she began coaxing the boy with sexual advances, including graphic text messages and photographs. Court records state the two had sex on at least a half-dozen occasions, including in Milan’s classroom.
On at least one occasion she met up with the boy at West Town Mall and then had sex with him in her car, according to the lawsuit attorney Eddie Daniel filed in Knox County Circuit Court last week on behalf of the boy’s mother.
The lawsuit alleges former Northwest Middle coach Sean Green was a friend of Milan’s and brought the boy to her classroom, knowing Milan planned to have sex with him. Green is also accused in the lawsuit of helping Milan hide the relationship and pressuring the boy’s mother to keep quiet after she discovered her son was being victimized. Green is not charged criminally.
Knox County Schools is accused in the lawsuit of doing little to stop or prevent the victimization of students by teachers and school staffers. The lawsuit stated there have been repeated instances of sexual encounters between teachers and students in the past few years in which the school system was slow to respond.
The lawsuit seeks more than $2 million from the school system, Milan and Green.
Thursday’s plea deal not only spares Milan a jail term as long as she stays out of trouble but also shields the boy from testifying in a public courtroom, a factor cited in court for the agreement.
It’s never been clear when the school system learned of the statutory rape allegations against Milan. She abruptly resigned in July — soon after the boy’s mother discovered the relationship — but said in her resignation letter she could not discuss her reasons for quitting. Milan was indicted in November.
Dr. Shabir Ally, a scholar and theologian who taught courses on Arabic, the Quran, and Islam at the University of Toronto, is the President of the Islamic Information & Dawah Centre International in Toronto and the founder of the TV and online show Let the Quran Speak.
In the online show Let the Quran Speak, Dr. Shabir Ally explained the Islamic perspective on homosexuality. The following is excerpt of the interview (posted on YouTube on Apr 12, 2015):
Question: “Are there any penalties in the Islamic Sharia for someone who identifies himself or herself with a homosexual orientation?”
Dr. Shabir Ally: “In some traditional books it is mentioned that scholars pondered this issue and partly did not have anything clear to go on like if we think about the penalty for theft for example, this is clearly stated in the Koran that the hand of the thief should be cut.
“If we think about the penalty for adultery, this is clearly mentioned in the Koran as number of lashes orhundred. Of course the stipulations and when and how to apply this and so on this is a separate discussion,but no specific penalty was mentioned for homosexual acts except for what I mentioned previously about that verse of the Koran which could possibly refer to homosexual acts, but there is no specific penalty was mentioned. It was said: punish them both [partners to the homosexual act].”
In another event (video posted on YouTube on December 8, 2012), Dr. Shabir Ally said the following:
“But God’s law says that what we’re talking about here [homosexuality] is wrong, and if they do that wrong they have to face it.
“So some say: no but we cannot help it. How do you mean you cannot help it? This is the continual call of the Satan (Shaitan شيطان).
“Satan tells the child molester you cannot help yourself you have to molest children. You see the short criminal mind? It is shown here the criminal mind.
“Some people have some criminal mind they cannot help themselves, they have to go murder the next victim, and the next victim, and the next victim. So this is they cannot help themselves.
“What do we say? You should be able to help yourself. Stop yourself. Right? Go to the guidance of Allah, glorified and exalted be He [سبحانه وتعالى], do what is right. Just because you have an inner desire you have to commit crime doesn’t mean that you have to commit crime. You can stop yourself, right?”
