Islamic Law and Soraya M

Posted in Afghanistan, Arab, Insanity, Iran, Islamic Revolution, Justice, Modern World, Muslim, Religion, Torture with tags , , , , , , , , , on 22/05/2010 by floroy1942

My wife and I watched a movie the other day that, to say the least, shocked us to the core. ‘The Stoning of Soraya M’ shed new light on the much disputed Sharia Law practised in most Muslim countries.

Soraya M Played by Mozhan Marno

In short, the story line consists of the husband, Ali’s, desire to divorce his wife Soraya because he wishes to marry a 14 year-old virgin. Soraya however would not consent to the divorce. Driven to desperation by his lust for the young girl he hatches a plot with the local cleric, who has a dark past known to Ali, to get rid of Soraya by charging her with adultery. After the wife of the village mechanic dies, Soraya is persuaded much against her will to clean and cook for the husband and his son by Ali and the cleric. Once the routine has been established Ali finds the excuse he needs to charge his wife with adultery.

With threats and coercion from him and the cleric the mechanic, a simple man, is forced to be the necessary third witness to the ‘crime’. Ali shouts his indignation to the entire village and tells everyone how his honour has been insulted. After this the end is predictable, and gruesome. Soraya’s aunt does everything she can to save her, but to no avail. It is not until after Soraya dies that the mechanic finally tells the truth, driven by remorse.

The film tells Soraya’s story with feeling, which cannot fail to arouse sadness at the injustice and barbarity of this young woman’s death at the hand of her unscrupulous husband.

The Journalist Played By James Caviezel

Shortly after the execution, a French-Iranian journalist comes to the village with car trouble and the aunt tells him the whole story. The Frenchman escapes the village, despite the cleric and Ali trying to stop him, and in this way the whole sordid story is released to the world.

The journalist, Freidoune Sahebjam wrote a best-seller based on this true story when he got back home which was published in 1994. In 2008 director Cyrus Nowrasteh produced the film with a Muslim cast which won many awards and nominations. Both the book and film were banned in Iran because of the negative vision it gave of Muslim justice.

I have had many interesting internet conversations with Muslims over this draconian approach to law enforcement and all defend it, many making excuses for the excessive harshness meted out by this system of justice. All criticism against it is dismissed as ‘western propaganda and lies’.

They told me for example, that the hand of a thief is not summarily cut off, but only as a last resort in cases where the thief stole for personal gain, not e.g. if he was hungry. I was politely informed that Muslim women are required to cover their body and faces by the Quran and associated religious texts so as not to tempt men, not because their husbands are insanely jealous of other men seeing them.

The Damning of the Innocent

They also told me that a woman is not stoned to death without there being the required number of witnesses to the adulterous act, which is true. The film however shows graphically how such a law can be twisted and manipulated by any Muslim male to get what he wants.

Stone in the Hand of a Killer

Under Sharia Law all stones have to be  certain size. Not too large as to cause death with a single hit, but large enough to be very painful when struck by one. Also, if the condemned can free themselves from the pit they go free. Not much chance of that with your hands bound and buried to the waist.

For anyone who wants to see the true face of Islam this film is a must, but I warn you, you will need a strong stomach to watch the scenes of the execution.

The whole saga is without doubt a sad indictment of Sharia Law and those who practice it.

Crazy! You Couldn’t Make It Up – Series 1 Episode 8

Posted in Arab, Britain, England, Gays, Homosexuals, Human Rights, Insanity, Iran, Justice, Modern World, Muslim, Police, Prison, Theft, UK, World War 2 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 18/05/2010 by floroy1942

Read the news and there is no end to the quirky items about people and events. The last couple of weeks is no exception as you will see if you read on.

I Lui Take Thee…

The ‘Pet Crazies’ are everywhere, you know the type. They lavish love and affection on their dogs and cats like they are their own children, and spend outrageous amounts of money to provide them with all sorts of costly gifts from diamond-studded collars to ridiculously expensive grooming at bespoke salons. Nothing wrong with that I hear you say, and I agree, because the pet obviously fills a gap in these people’s lives. This story though, topped the lot for strangeness when a Brazilian couple spent £6,000 to get their dogs ‘married‘! The bride Bruna, and the groom Lui apparently barked their vows and set a paw print on the official document. Believe it or not, the ‘bride wore a ‘stunning’ gown costing £270 while the groom was correctly attired in a tuxedo. They even had a special ‘doggy’ cake made with loving care and wolfed down in seconds. The next thing to be planned is a honeymoon for the two love-dogs which is expected to take place in July, because then the bride will be in heat! That should be one helluva honeymoon! Down Boy! Down!!!

Hoorn Prison

The Dutch have some strange habits, I should know I lived there for thirty years, but recently a story came out of Holland that beggars belief. In the town of Hoorn, near Amsterdam, thieves broke into, yes that’s right, into a prison and stole the inmates t.v’s while they were away for the weekend. The crazy thing is, it happened not once, but twice in a period of six weeks, the second time they set off an alarm but still got away. Prison officials are totally baffled as to how the burglars got in and out again with the t.v.’s without being noticed by staff. Mind you, if I know ‘Cloggyland’, I’ll bet the guards were probably watching football on the TV, and that’s why theirs didn’t get pinched!!!

Modern Iranian Girl

Iran is said to be the most earthquake prone zone in the Middle East, and a senior Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sidiqhi has finally found out why! According to him woman are to blame for the earthquakes in Iran! This ‘learned’ gentleman has been quoted by an Iranian newspaper as saying during a prayer meeting; “Many women who do not dress modestly…lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society increase earthquakes.” My goodness, I bet he thought long and hard over that one! He is of course hitting out at the younger generation of Muslim women who do not follow the strict dress code of Islam, i.e. covering themselves from head to toe. Many today wear tight jeans and have their face uncovered, much to the disgust of devout Muslims and their clergy. Hence perhaps the rather novel notion these ‘loose’ women cause earthquakes. I can’t believe his followers take him seriously, but they do. I guess seismologists world-wide can start looking for alternative work because this guy has answered all their questions!!!

Sorry! Call This Number

If someone damages your car, naturally you would think the correct thing to do is go to the police station and report it; Right? Wrong! Not in Hessle near Hull in England. That is what Andy Bevan did when someone slashed his tyres, but when he got to the police station he was given a card and told to ring the Command Centre because they could not deal with it. To make matters worse, while he was outside using his mobile, a policeman came out and told him he could use a phone inside the station. It’s the same old story in the UK these days, you can never find a copper when you need one, and when you do, he can’t do anything because he is only there to fill in forms, but not the one pertaining to your case!!!

Here You Are Miss Er…!

Once more the ‘Human Rights’ issue has raised its ugly head in Britain with a transsexual suing the NHS because they will not give ‘her’ a boob job! Born a man, ‘C’ has been on hormone treatment since 1996 but it failed to provide, according to ‘her’, with adequate breasts. So ‘she’ wants an operation on the NHS to enlarge them before undergoing a sex change operation. The NHS refused, saying the requested treatment was purely cosmetic. ‘C’ claims not having the operation will leave her ‘between sexes’ and is causing her stress, so now ‘she’ is playing the Human Rights card with a battery of lawyers before the High Court. Big or small breasts, I hope ‘she’ never gives me the ‘come on’!!!

Unrepentant – Tohseef Shah

Once again, the farce that is the British justice system failed spectacularly recently when a young Muslim was arrested and charged for scrawling Islamic slogans like “Islam will dominate the world” on a WW2 monument in the town of Burton-on-Trent. The graffiti praised Osama bin Laden and threatened the Prime Minister (Gordon Brown) with death but, surprise, surprise, the Crown Prosecution Service considered the graffiti to be; “Not racially motivated.” This, according to the CPS, is because a Judge ruled; “Christian beliefs had no right of protection under British law (No! Only Islamic).” The offender, Tohseef Shah was therefore not prosecuted under the more serious charge of inciting religious hatred and got off with a two-year conditional discharge and a fine of £500 to pay for the clean-up job, this despite him showing no remorse at his actions. Needless to say, veterans are fuming at the ruling.  I think our forefathers must be thinking; Sod it! What was the point???

You know what they say: “Life’s a bitch and then you die!” More to come!

The Erosion of Christian Human Rights

Posted in Britain, Christianity, England, Human Rights, Insanity, Modern World, Religion, UK, UN, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , , on 08/05/2010 by floroy1942

Why  does everyone seem to have human rights except christians in today’s world? Christians are once again under attack for their faith in England, this time by The National Secular Society (NSS) who have been in a long-running battle with Bideford Council, and are now threatening to take them to the European Court because the age-old traditional saying of prayers before a council meeting convenes human rights.

Bideford – Council Under Fire

The moment of prayer before a council meeting is a tradition that goes back centuries, but is now under attack because it ‘breaches the human rights of atheist and agnostic council members’. Well I say, what about the human rights of Christians? The NSS is determined to halt the practice through judicial means and will not be satisfied with just winning against Bideford, but will, it is believed, go on to have the practice banned in all council chambers up and down the country.

Founder of the NSS

This society, formed in 1866 by Charles Bradlaugh, was intended to combat Christian religious privilege, separate church and state, and promote secularism. Currently, the society campaigns for the disestablishment of the Church of England, an end to tax exemption for religious schools, and public funding of priests who work in jails, hospitals, and the armed forces. They are also deeply involved in the abolition of the blasphemy laws and are intent on keeping religion out of human rights, healthcare, legislation and equality issues. And now, they have Bideford council in their sights! According to councillors, they have been chosen because it is not a rich council.

The sad thing is these people don’t belong to any faith, they are agnostics and atheists, and because of their lack of faith, it seems they think they can restrict the practice ours. It is without doubt the right of any person to be an atheist or agnostic, but equally so, it the right of any individual to believe and practice that belief. Britain is after all a christian country.

The act of prayers before a council meeting is a way for councillors to seek guidance to do the right thing for the people they represent, and yes, it is based on christian beliefs and values, but those who do not believe do not have to take part. To quote the words of a christian councillor, Tony Inch; “those who do not wish to take part can twiddle their thumbs”.

According to Keith Porteous Wood, Executive Director of the NSS, councillors should pray at home or in church but not at meetings (he now wishes to tell us when we can and cannot pray?); “It is not appropriate in modern-day Britain for prayers to form an integral part of council meetings”. It all comes down to a small number of people wishing to force their views on the majority and put an end to yet another age-old tradition, when the simple answer is just to not take part. Those who value their christian faith and traditions can take a moment or so to pray, but it doesn’t mean the non-believers have to. They can out of respect for the human rights of the believers wait just a moment or two with their own thoughts while the prayers are concluded.

The most annoying part of situations like this is people who play the ‘Human Rights’ card in an effort to deny others theirs!

Standing Up For Christian Rights

The former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey has voiced his concern at yet another attack on christian values in Britain by calling it an “attack on freedom”, and he is quite right. He said; “The centuries long tradition of saying prayers before council meetings is simply an acknowledgement of the important role the Christian faith plays in civic life. The attempt to rule such prayers as discriminatory is an attack on freedom and a cynical manoeuvre to drive public expression of faith from national as well as local life.”

The Human Rights Charter 1948

The Human Rights Charter, the world’s response to the atrocities that took place during the Holocaust of WW2, was signed in 1948 at the UN but is sadly used today by any crackpot, fringe group, terrorist, criminal or the insane to get what they want at any cost. Its misuse is eroding all the nobler values that have stood the human race in good stead for centuries. Now, just because you don’t like what Joe Blogg’s does because it doesn’t fit with what you think he should be doing, take him to court to satisfy your own twisted ideals.

It’s all wrong folks! Our higher moral standards, religion, system of government, our very way of life is being dictated by a handful of self-righteous, self-centred individuals who think they can use the law for their own ends just because what we do does not fit with their ideals.

It doesn’t matter what noble purpose our forefathers had when creating these ‘Rights’ for the people, once the edifice starts to crumble through gross misuse it will not be long before the whole building collapses, and where will we be then; Back in the Dark Ages?

May God help us see the light of reason.

Election Debacle

Posted in Britain, Elections, England, English Schools, Immigrants, Justice, MP's, Parliament, Prison, UK, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , , , on 07/05/2010 by floroy1942

So the wait is finally over, and Britain takes another firm step towards oblivion.

Even the election was poorly organized, with complaints from tens of thousands of people across the country who said the polling stations closed their doors at 10pm and they were not allowed to vote, even after queuing for hours. We have now sunk so low we cannot even organize an election properly.  This has never happened before.

The fact that Britain now has a hung parliament with no one party having a clear majority, means we will see in the coming weeks bitter haggling between the three parties as each vie for a share of power.

The major problem is, there is not a single party capable of running the country as it should be. Each successive government plunges our land deeper into crisis, none more so than Labour over the past thirteen years. Single-handedly, they have sabotaged our nation, and the opposition has done nothing to stop it.

They have given away the traditions and culture that made us proud and respected across the globe, and turned us into a pariah state, a melting pot of cultures, whilst at the same time driving us into debt by handing out money by the truckload to parasites and immigrants like confetti at a wedding.

Let me ask you a question: In what other country will you find an immigrant family living in a £2.6m mansion paid for by Social Services i.e. the taxpayer? I am sure you will not be able to give me an answer.

Another question: Name me any country where people can receive up to £30,000 a year for NOT working? Along with this of course goes a house, furniture, computers for the children etc., all paid for by the taxpayer. Again, I don’t think you will be able to give me a positive answer.

But all this is possible in Britain! Why?

The nation has been sold out in worship of continued power, and the voter is just as much to blame as the government, because Labour was voted back in time after time.

Now come the hard questions; What should we expect from the new coalition to get things back on track? A difficult one, with many facets.

I believe the first thing to do is ‘SHUT THE DOOR’ to all new immigrants! Secondly, we must SLASH the Social Services Budget so that only the really needy get help, and then at a minimum level to sustain them. Parasites (i.e. work-shy and those feigning disability) should have all their payments stopped and be forced to EARN their living and contribute to the system.

Steps must also be taken to get rid of the ‘Goody-Goody’ Brigade from their seats of power, which they have used to sabotage our traditions, culture and justice system for far too long.

Immigrants should be made to realise they live in OUR country and must conform to our laws and our way of life. This means no mosques, no veils, no arranged marriages, no Islāmic demonstrations and NO Sharia Law. If they cannot respect our way of life while practising thier own faith they should leave for a Muslim country.

Harsh measures must be taken to resolve the current disasters we call Justice, the NHS, and our Education systems. How do we do that? As follows!

First we need more prisons, secondly we need sentences that fit the crime without the opportunity of early release. We need prisoners to wear a penal uniform and perform hardlabour during their incarceration. We need the return of the death penalty for pre-meditated murder, and serial paedophiles and rapists should be castrated. Only by putting the fear of God into criminals will we ever stop the crime that rules our daily lives.

Our government must take the steps necessary to stop the spiralling cycle of violence, and to hell with the UN, Amnesty International and all the other ‘Goody-Goody’ Brigades. We can take another look at international conventions once we have things back under control.

So far as the NHS is concerned, it is time to kick out these useless self-serving administrators from our hospitals and go back to the ‘Matron’ system, where wards and nurses were controlled by senior nursing staff with a complete understanding of what is required. Kick out all the contract cleaning companies and have dedicated cleaning staff in every hospital as it used to be.

When this system was in place decades ago there was no such thing as patients catching life threatening diseases IN the hospital.

The education system also needs to return to the old standards of excellence, with major improvements in the standard of teaching, the national curriculum, and a much-needed return to classroom discipline.

The next question is, which of the parties is strong, and committed enough, to do this? The answer is; None!

The most important thing for politicians today is to stay in power, not do what is good for the country and its people.

Many analysts predict Europe is heading for financial meltdown with the economic crisis in Greece, the UK, Portugal and Spain. These same analysts are forecasting Britain will have a bigger budget deficit than Greece in the coming year, with all the problems associated with it. So it is clear that whichever coalition comes to power, they will have a monumental task ahead of them.

Will they be up to the task? I think not! We will return to the favourite British pastime of the blind leading the blind!

Roy.

So Finally it Begins!

Posted in Britain, Christianity, England, Free Speech, Gays, Homosexuals, Human Rights, Insanity, Justice, Modern World, Muslim, Police, Religion, UK, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , , on 02/05/2010 by floroy1942

Free Speech! What is it worth to you in our democratic state? I hope it means something, and I hope you consider it worth fighting for because a sneaky, stealthy attack on free speech is underway. Today, a Christian preacher, Dale McAlpine, was arrested in Wokington, England for daring to utter the words ‘Homosexuality is a sin against God and the Bible”  in a public place.

Dale McAlpine – Street Preacher

He was charged under the 1986 Public Order Act, which originally was implemented to combat rowdy football fans, drunks and violent rioters. The man is a devout Christian but it would seem he does not have the right to say publicly what he believes in. Such is the level to which life in England has stooped. He told the Police that he made no reference to homosexuality during his sermon, given from the top of a stepladder, but the words were uttered to a woman who engaged him in conversation. According to the Community Service Police Officer, who is a homosexual and relations officer for homosexual, lesbian, trans-gender and bisexual deviants, he made the statement in a loud voice for all to hear.  The fact that this person is homosexual, and quite probably personally motivated,  I suppose has no bearing on the case!!!! Either way, the unfortunate man was placed in the back of a police van and ‘put through the system’ like a common criminal.

I find it incredible that such a thing could happen in the country of my birth, and one that I love dearly. This simple man was not doing anyone any harm, except for the fact he ruffled the feathers of a pompous, over-bearing and personally motivated community service officer who practically accused him of starting a riot.

Miguel Hayworth

An almost identical situation developed in Manchester at the end of July 2009 when a father and son were reading passages from the Bible on the street and were threatened with arrest for inciting hatred and racism.

What’s He Got We Don’t – FREE SPEECH

It all goes to show that our right to free speech is under attack by small-minded bigots who think the only people allowed to preach their brand of religion are those from minority groups. If Christians do it in a Christian country they are inciting a riot. Balderdash!

As Sam Webster, lawyer for the Religious Institute pointed out, the police “must also support the rights of free speech”, something enshrined in the United Nations Human Rights Charter. It would seem the more rights we get, the less we can use them!

Heaven save us from ourselves.

Roy.
