Swedish Muslim Woman Confesses To Killing Her 5 Month Old Child With a Qur’an

A woman who confessed to suffocating her 5-month-old child with the family’s copy of the Koran is on trial in western Sweden, with her defense team arguing she had a psychotic breakdown, possibly due to postpartum depression.

“I didn’t want to kill him, I wanted to save him,” the 28-year-old woman said during a hearing on Tuesday at the Halmstad District Court, according to the Aftonbladet newspaper.

The incident occurred in late July, when the woman met her husband at his workplace, where she told him she wasn’t feeling well.

“I told her that we couldn’t speak there, and that we could discuss it at home,” the husband said in court, according to the Expressen paper.

“At the same time, I suggested she could read passages from the Koran for support, as we’re both Muslims.”

However, when he arrived home the father found his child dead with 39 wounds to its body, the majority of which were caused by the holy book.

The 28-year-old mother was subsequently charged with murder, with an alternative charge of aggravated manslaughter.

“The woman intentionally killed her child. She smothered it to death and the Koran was the murder weapon,” prosecutor Anders Johansson said in court, according to Expressen.

The 28-year-old woman has confessed to the murder, blaming her actions on visions which became increasingly vivid in the weeks leading up to the killing.

“I saw horns growing out of the baby’s forehead and long vines on his body. I saw an old man’s head on his body. I wanted to save my baby, not kill him,” she said in court.

The woman’s defence lawyer argued his client was in a “psychotic state” when she committed the infanticide, something which experts suggest could be linked to postpartum depression.

“Some people can get so depressed that they want to die, and killing their own child is a type of extended suicide, with the intention of taking their life with your own,” Karin Monsen-Börjesson, psychiatrist and expert on postpartum depression at the Karolinska University Hospital, told The Local.

She explained that the condition has been linked to a number of infant murders.

“When you have any kind of depression you can become a lot more sensitive when you have a small child. But this kind of incident is very, very rare in Sweden,” Monsen-Börjesson said.

REVEREND WHO GAVE BENEDICTION AT OBAMA’S INAUGURATION SAYS HE THINKS ALL WHITES ARE GOING TO HELL

The reverend who delivered the benediction at President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration said Saturday he believes all white people are going to hell, according to a local Georgia newspaper.

Rev. Joseph Lowery, the civil rights icon who co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., said during a rally at St. James Baptist Church in Forsyth, Ga. that he’s arrived back at the same view he held as a “young militant,” according to the Monroe County Reporter:

Lowery said that when he was a young militant, he used to say all white folks were going to hell. Then he mellowed and just said most of them were. Now, he said, he is back to where he was.

The Reporter paraphrased Lowery’s comments and did not provide a direct quote relating to those remarks. It should be noted that the reverend appeared to be using hyperbole to drive a point home, not stating a factual theological conclusion. That being said, the statement is still extremely controversial and divisive.

TheBlaze contacted St. James Baptist Church for clarification on Lowery’s comments. Pastor Antonio Proctor told TheBlaze that he did in fact speak at the church but said Lowery should be the one to provide clarity to his comments, not the church.

Attempts by TheBlaze to contact Lowery were unsuccessful.

The 91-year-old Lowery was speaking at St. James Baptist Church to encourage others vote for Obama, according to the Reporter. Saying that Obama lost Georgia in 2008 by 200,000 votes, with 390,000 black people not voting, he couldn’t imagine why any black person wouldn’t support him for re-election.

Are the networks hiding White House emails ordering counterterrorism team to stand down on rescue mission at Consulate in Benghazi?

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says there is a rumor that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down. “They were a group in real-time trying to mobilize Marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House ‘stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action.’”

The Blaze He continued, “If that’s true, and I’ve been told this by a fairly reliable U.S. senator, if that’s true and that comes out in the next day or two, I think it raises enormous questions about the president’s role, Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser’s role, the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who has taken it on his own shoulders, that he said don’t go. And I think that’s very dubious, given that the president said he had instructions they are supposed to do everything they could to secure American personnel.”
Gingrich said if accurate, it leaves two conclusions: that the the secretary of defense usurped the commander in chief or that Obama never gave the order. Gingrich said he thinks Benghazi will be “enormous in terms of the election,” saying that he’s been to multiple places where voters want to know what happened.

Rumsfeld on Benghazi’s Knowns and Unknowns

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld spoke to Breitbart News about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, and the apparent cover-up that has followed as the administration struggled to spin the story.

Breitbart News: When you hear the word “Benghazi,” with all we know now, what comes to mind?

Rumsfeld: Well, the first thing that comes to mind is the loss of life: the four Americans, including the Ambassador, who were murdered, who were killed in a terrorist attack. They were killed in a terrorist attack that has been misrepresented by the most senior officials in our government. From the President to the Secretary of State to the Ambassador to the United Nations to the President’s spokesman, there has been a pattern of characterizing the attack as a spontaneous outbreak because of a “hateful video.”

It is heartbreaking that there were obvious warnings before this happened. There were warnings that the security was inadequate, and there were requests for better security that were not fulfilled. Our government knew it was September 11th, and the anniversary of the September 11th attacks of 2001, yet the warnings, apparently, were ignored.

And when the President characterizes the things that happened there as “bumps in the road,” it seems to me that doesn’t reflect a full understanding of his responsibilities.

Breitbart News: You speak of “responsibilities,” which leads me to ask about the President’s responsibilities regarding the distress call sent when Ambassador Stevens was in trouble. Is there any possible way that the President failed to receive or to see that distress call?

Rumsfeld: First, I guess you never want to say never. But the information flow into the Situation Room in the White House is massive. Basically, anything of significance that is known and forwarded to the State Department, the CIA, or the Department of Defense ends up available in the Situation Room in reasonably rapid manner. They have excellent communications capabilities.

Does it go directly to the Oval Office? No. It goes into the Situation Room where the Chief of Staff of the White House and the National Security Advisor end up being alerted to anything of significance. And certainly the risk of life for an Ambassador is something that would qualify as significant.

Therefore, we know that the Chief of Staff of the White House and the National Security Advisor were made aware of the threat that existed, of the danger that existed: of the immediate threat to Americans. Because that information, I have every confidence, ended up in the Situation Room very rapidly.

FATHER OF ANOTHER BENGHAZI VICTIM DEMANDS ANSWERS: MY SON ‘DIALED 911 FOR HELP AND THEY WOULDN’T HELP’

As Congress steps up its efforts to get answers from a reluctant Obama administration about the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, another father of one of the Americans killed in the attack is speaking out. Understandably, he wants answers.

Rene “Ray” Smith’s son, Sean Smith, a State Department official, was one of the four Americans killed in Libya when terrorists overran the U.S. compound in a sophisticated and pre-planned attack.

“He was murdered. He was murdered,” Smith told WTSP. “I want them to get the people who did this.”

But the grieving father wants more than just revenge. He wants the White House to explain exactly what happened in Libya on Sept. 11 and why repeated calls for help were denied.

“They haven’t done anything. My son and them dialed 911 for help and they wouldn’t help them…I want whoever did this, whoever didn’t answer their phone, I want them brought to justice too,” Smith added.

Facebook Censors Navy SEALS to Protect Obama on Benghazi-Gate

Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.

The message was contained in a meme which demonstrated how Obama had relied on the SEALS when he was ready to let them get Osama bin Laden, and how he had turned around and denied them when they called for backup on Sept 11.

I spoke with Larry Ward, president of Political Media, Inc — the media company that handles SOS postings and media production. Ward was the one who personally put the Navy SEAL meme up, and the one who received the warning from Facebook and an eventual 24 hour suspension from Facebook because Ward put the meme back up after Facebook told him to take it down.

Here’s what Ward told me:

We created and posted this meme on Saturday after news broke that Obama had known and denied SEALS the backup they requested.

Once the meme was up it garnered 30,000 shares, approx. 24,000 likes, and was read by hundreds of thousands of people — all within 24 hrs. On Sunday, I went into the SOS Facebook page to post something else and found a warning from Facebook that we had violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities with our meme. So I copied the warning, put it on the meme as as caption, and re-posted the meme to the Facebook page.
