Christians ‘being rounded up and tortured’ in Libya

Christians living in Libya have been rounded up, beaten and accused of proselytising, in the latest evidence of a militant Islamic movement gripping the country since the revolution.

The men, Egyptian Copts working in Benghazi, were seized by an Islamist militia but handed over to the government. One, named as Ezzat Atallah (44) died at the weekend after allegedly being tortured, his brother, Effat, said.

The authorities have condemned an attack on the community’s priest, but in a sign of their powerlessness in the face of sectarian violence, have taken no further action. After the death of Mr Atallah, four men remain in custody out of 60 detained, while 35 of the remainder have been deported on the grounds of illegal immigration.

Ragaa Nagah, the wife of one of the four incarcerated men, Emad Seddeek, said: “When I visited him he was in a pitiful condition. He was afraid to tell us how he was tortured, but he couldn’t see out of one of his eyes.

“They were standing over him and beating him while they asked him to confess and when they were about to give him an electric shock he said, ‘Don’t do that and I will say anything you want me to say’.”

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.

The Muslim Breach of America’s White House

While Americans go trudging off to work or more importantly, under the tyranny of Sheik Obama, go trudging off to the unemployment benefits office…our fearless Leader has lowered the gate to our nation’s White House and invited in the worst of the worst of America’s Muslim underworld. Our nation’s White House, where the free world was born and preserved has been infested and infected by the likes of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Muslim Brotherhood and ISNA. While Americans sit down tonight to the fourth straight night of cheap pasta for dinner, some of us are wondering just what secrets and strategy the radical Islamic terror groups of our country have taken from the home of our Leader.

The story comes from The Investigative Project on Terrorism.

A year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known radical Islamists made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House, meeting with top administration officials.

Court documents and other records have identified many of these visitors as belonging to groups serving as fronts for the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and other Islamic militant organizations.

The IPT made the discovery combing through millions of White House visitor log entries. IPT compared the visitors’ names with lists of known radical Islamists. Among the visitors were officials representing groups which have:

Been designated by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators in terrorist trials; Extolled Islamic terrorist groups including Hamas and Hizballah;
Obstructed terrorist investigations by instructing their followers not to cooperate with law enforcement;
Promoted the incendiary conspiratorial allegation that the United States is engaged in a “war against Islam”— a leading tool in recruiting Muslims to carry out acts of terror;
Repeatedly claimed that many of the Islamic terrorists convicted since 9-11 were framed by the U.S government as part of an anti-Muslim profiling campaign.

Individuals from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) visited the White House at least 20 times starting in 2009. In 2008, CAIR was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorist money laundering case in U.S. history – the trial of the Holy Land Foundation in which five HLF officials were convicted of funneling money to Hamas.

U.S. District Court Judge Jorge Solis later ruled that, “The Government has produced ample evidence to establish the association” of CAIR to Hamas, upholding their designations as unindicted co-conspirators. In 2008, the FBI formally ended all contact with CAIR because of its ties to Hamas.

Obama Campaign Held Muslim Townhall at Terror-Linked Va. Mosque

In case you missed this: be warned. It is state approved propaganda in defense of the Obama campaign and poor Muslims. Read at your own risk. via Obama campaign holds Muslim outreach event – POLITICO.com.

The Obama campaign is hosting an outreach event for Virginia-area Muslim Americans on Sunday, according to an invitation obtained by POLITICO.

Brian Moran, the chairman of the Virginia Democratic Party, will represent the Obama campaign as a surrogate at an event in Sterling, Va. at a local community center

It’s one of the first real outreach events this cycle by the Obama campaign to a community that is largely overlooked – and sometimes demonized – by both sides of the aisle.

There are more than 2 million Muslim-Americans in the United States, most of Arab, South-Asian and African-American decent.

That’s less than 1 percent of the US population, but Muslim voters are concentrated in a number of states and major metropolitan areas – including the Virginia suburbs of Washington D.C.

According to research by Pew, Virginia is among the ten states with the highest number of Muslim Americans – and the only real contested swing state on that list aside from Ohio.

Those pockets of voters – by all indications, likely to vote for Obama – could play a role in a close state like Virginia. President Obama leads among Arab Muslim-Americans in a recent poll by a whopping 75 to 8 percent.

The Obama campaign has always treaded cautiously around the Muslim community – given the false and hysterical rumors that have circulated about Obama’s own religious beliefs and background.

Left out, intentionally no doubt, is the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) is a Virginia mosque with a history of terror links:

In March 2002, federal agents raided the offices of many northern-Virginia-based Muslim organizations, including ADAMS, on suspicion that they were providing material support to terrorists. This initiative, known as “Operation Green Quest,” was the largest investigation of terror-financing ever conducted anywhere in the world. Soon after the raids had been completed, Magid held a public meeting in the town of Sterling, where he encouraged “community building” among the groups that were being investigated. To this meeting, he invited such notables as Kit Gage of the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom; Mahdi Bray, political advisor for the Muslim Public Affairs Council; and Nihad Awad, the pro-Hamas executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Awad told the outraged crowd: “This is a war against Islam and Muslims. Our administration [i.e., the Bush administration] has the burden of proving otherwise.”

Egyptian Muslims Try To Rape French Female Journalist In Tahrir Square

So, the rocket scientists at French news media outlet, France 24, decided that they needed a report from Cairo, Egypt so they sent a female reporter, a WESTERN female reporter, mind you, into the same location that saw the rape of CBS reporter Lara Logan. Brilliant, huh? And yes, the French female reporter WAS attacked and if not for the valiant effort of another correspondent, she would have been the latest victim of the mongrels of Tahrir Square.

But hey, this is what democracy looks like, right?

Lara Logan should be suing the ass off of CBS News and this French reporter should be suing France 24 for all they are worth. As for the crowds in Cairo…welcome to the Stone Age, folks. Anything goes under the Muslim Brotherhood.

The story comes from the New York Daily News via The Religion of Peace.

A French television journalist said Saturday that she was attacked in the same Cairo square where CBS correspondent Lara Logan was sexually assaulted last year.

Logan said her “heart goes out” to Sonia Dridi — who told the Daily News she had just covered a protest in Egypt’s Tahrir Square when she was surrounded by some men.

She said they put their hands all over her, tried to remove her clothes and attempted to drag her away from a male colleague who was trying to protect her.

“We see it all the time,” said Dridi. “Men touch women and grab them.”

She said Ashraf Khalil, a correspondent for Time and France 24, kept her from being carried off.

“There were at least 50 guys around us attacking us, but Ashraf held onto me and told me, ‘Don’t worry. Just breathe. Breathe. It’s going to be okay,’ ” she said.

Khalil told The Associated Press the crowd surged in toward them and “went crazy.”

“It was basically me keeping her in a bear hug, both arms around her and face-to-face,” he said. “It was hard to tell who was helping and who was groping her.”

Dridi said that at one point, some of the men were telling her to get in a van and she didn’t know if it was a trap or an escape route, but Khalil told her not to get in.

“There were a lot of men in there and I’m sure now that they were of the attackers,” she said.

The Rape & Murder of Pakistan’s Christian Children

The West sighed in relief when Rimsha Masih, the 14-year-old Christian girl arrested in Pakistan on August 16 for allegedly burning pages of the Quran, was finally released. Yet the West remains clueless concerning the graphic abuses-including rape and murder-Christian children in Pakistan routinely suffer, simply for being Christian. Consider two stories alone, both of which occurred at the same time Rimsha’s blasphemy ordeal was making headlines around the world.

On August 14, another Christian girl, 12-year-old Muqadas Kainat (which means “Holy Universe”) was ambushed in a field near her home in Sahawil by five Muslim men who “gang raped and murdered” her. At the time, her father was at a hospital visiting her sick mother. He and other family members began a frantic search, until a tip led them to the field where his daughter’s body lay. The postmortem revealed that she had been “gang raped and later strangled to death by five men.” Police, as usual, did not arrest anyone. As a Salem News report puts it, “Complicating matters is the fact that several Christian girls in this remote area have been raped and forced to both marry into the Muslim community and abandon their own religion, human rights groups report…. there is a history in this part of Pakistan according to the Christian community, of local authorities failing to investigate cases of rape or other violence against Christians, often for fear of influential Muslims or militants.”

Similarly, on August 20, an 11-year-old Christian boy, Samuel Yaqoob, went to the markets of Faisalabad to buy food for his family, never to return. According to Wilson Chowdhry, Chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association, “After extensive searching his body was found near a drain in the Christian colony, bearing marks of horrific torture, with the murder weapon nearby. His nose, lips and belly had been sliced off, and his family could hardly recognize him because the body was so badly burnt. Some 23 wounds by a sharp weapon have been identified in the autopsy. When sending his body for an autopsy, police raised the possibility of sodomy. Parts of Pakistani culture have a strong homosexual pederast culture, and Christian and other minority boys are especially susceptible to rape and abuse because of the powerlessness of their community and their despised status. In one case fairly recently, a Christian boy was kidnapped, raped, tortured and killed by a police officer, his body similarly being dumped in a drain.”

These were just some of the stories concerning the sexual abuse and murder of Pakistan’s Christian children that occurred last August-even as the world stood in awe at the Rimsha Masih blasphemy case. Here are 10 more examples, chosen at random from the many former documented cases:

o Nisha, a 9-year-old Christian girl was abducted by Muslims, gang-raped, murdered by repeated blows to her head, and then dumped into a canal (May, 2009).

Yemeni woman sentenced to death for killing male relative who tried to rape her

A Yemeni woman has been sentenced to death for having opened fire and killed a male relative who climbed up the wall of her house in an attempt to rape her.

Raja Hakimi was initially sentenced to two years in prison by a district court in the southern province of Ibb. The sentence was raised to death by the court of appeals, prompting the condemnation of women and human rights groups.

Women Journalists Without Chains (WJWC), an organization co-founded in 2005 by Tawakkol Karman, a recipient of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, condemned the death sentence against Rajaa as an “unjust ruling, which violates all legislation and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

WJWC said in a statement that the woman, Hakimi, was “only defending herself” against an armed man who tried to exploit the absence of the woman’s husband and attack her with the intention to rape her.

The man reportedly carried a gun and climbed up the wall of Hakimi’s house in the middle of the night trying to enter the house from the window, Adenalghad.net and voice-yemen.com websites reported.

When she saw him, the frightened Hakimi pulled up the gun of her husband and opened fire on the assailant. He fell down to the ground and died. In the morning, neighbors saw the body of the man and informed the police, who then arrested Hakimi.

Hakimi pleaded guilty for murder but insisted that that she killed him in self-defense. However, her words were not taken into consideration by the appeals court, which ordered sending her to the gallows.

But deputy general director of legal affairs in the province of Ibb, Abdulrakeb Alhimyari, told Al Arabiya English that the act of killing was “possibly planned beforehand.”

He quoted Abdul Alim al-Hakami, a relative of both the woman and the murdered assailant, as saying that “justice was finally held.”

Abdul Alim was a previous government official in the province of Ibb, according to Alhimyari.

British soldiers resort to ‘baiting’ Taliban to beat rules of engagement

British soldiers in Afghanistan are being forced to act as bait in an attempt to draw the Taliban into opening fire, a serving platoon commander has alleged.

Soldiers are risking their lives to get round strict rules of engagement that allow them to shoot only if they are being attacked or are in “imminent danger”.

The Taliban are increasingly exploiting the rules by hiding weapons in undergrowth near patrol routes – meaning British forces cannot act against them until they actually pick up their guns.

The claims are made by Lieutenant Jimmy Clark , a platoon commander who recently returned from a tour of Afghanistan.

Shocking scenes to be broadcast in a documentary, Our War, on BBC Three this evening reveal how it was only by luck that soldiers survived a bomb while on a patrol nicknamed “Op Bait” late last year.

Lt Clark from 2 Mercian, who was leading the patrol, describes his frustration at the rules of engagement, which led to soldiers acting as bait to tempt the Taliban into attacking them. “It’s difficult really to ‘fight’ an enemy we’re not allowed to fight. Under our rules of engagement we can only really return fire and sometimes it’s very frustrating.” Footage of Op Bait, shot from headcams on soldiers’ helmets, released by the Ministry of Defence, shows how the plan almost backfired.

Lt Clark sums up the approach: “You have a foot patrol which has air support… you get contacted, you’re being fired at and the helicopter can come in and kill that guy.” For the avoidance of doubt, he adds: “Our job was to get shot at.”

Taliban Behead 17 Afghans For Attending “Mixed Sex” Dancing Party

The Taliban in Afghanistan have served up a harsh reminder of what life will be like in Afghanistan once Barack Obama’s recall of U.S. troops occurs in the near future as 17 Afghan civilians who attended a party that had the audacity of having BOTH men and women there were beheaded. Let’s do a countdown for the outrage from Afghan President Karzai – I’m sure it won’t take any longer than the outrage he would have shown if two Afghans were accidentally killed in a U.S. JDAM strike….right?

The story comes from The Jerusalem Post.

Another “Moderate” Muslim Is Really a Bloody Islamic Terrorist…British Doctor Leads Syrian Terror Cell

Just a couple of weeks ago on the Blog Talk Radio show I talked about the myth of “moderate” Muslims and I pointed to the example of the two ordinary “moderate” Muslims in Britain who all of a sudden turned into radical Islamic extremists and conducted the attempted bombings of the London night clubs and the airport in Glasgow, Scotland. Well, now we have to break the bad news to all of those Left Wing Muslim appeasers who insist that the majority of Muslims are nice little “moderate” Christians with a little twist – as it is now being reported here at the Daily Mail that a Muslim British doctor traveled to Syria to head up an Islamic terror cell and in fact, was responsible for the abduction of a British journalist.

So I ask the question – how many doctors and now many students and how many professors and how many store clerks and how many architects that strap bombs to themselves or put a gun to the head of another or plot to blow up a government building will it take for someone on the Left or in the mainstream to admit that finding a “moderate” Muslim is like finding a Dodo bird?
