100 Lashes? The Shame of Islam

Posted in Arab, Child Abuse, Children, Human Rights, Muslim, Religion, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 30/03/2013 by floroy1942

These days there are countless disgraceful miscarriages of justice all over the world, but few have the repugnance of a case in the Maldives where a 15 year-old girl has been sentenced to 100 lashes by a Muslim Sharia Court, after she was repeatedly raped by her stepfather over a number of years. There is no question of the man’s guilt, or the complicity of the child’s mother.

Paradise? - Look Deeper

Paradise? – Look Deeper

We all know the island chain as a dream holiday destination, but it is clear it has a dark side to it. The Maldives legal system is based on a mixture of Muslim Sharia and English common law,  and all who live there are subject to it. Sharia, the barbaric code of law peculiar to the Muslim faith, has for years been responsible for atrocities across the world in the name of justice, and because it is so embedded in the Muslim faith, is unlikely to change.

The girl in question was repeatedly raped by her stepfather over a number of years, and fell pregnant when she was fourteen. To keep everything secret, her mother removed the girl from school until the baby was born. The stepfather killed the newborn and buried the body in the back yard, and the rapes continued. All three were arrested in June last year when during an investigation, the police found the body. In court the man was found guilty and sentenced. The mother is also facing charges.

It came out in court that the girl had consensual premarital sex with another man, which for women is against Sharia Law. Subsequently, the court ordered she undergo eight months of house arrest and was forced to serve it in a children’s home. When reaching the age of eighteen, she will also receive 100 lashes for premarital sex. It is not enough that this young girl has for years suffered humiliation at the hands of her stepfather, given birth at the tender age of fourteen, and could not even turn to her mother for solace, but now she must undergo the shame and humiliation of a flogging.

The girl is not the only one to receive such punishment in the Maldives for in 2012, a 16-year-old was lashed for the ‘crime’, and in 2009 a pregnant 18-year-old received 100 lashes for having sex with two different men.

This present case is another example of cruel injustice within the Muslim world where Sharia dictates a harsh system of law that is out of place in a modern world.

Alleged Unfaithful Wife

Muslims have for centuries twisted and manipulated them to suit their own purposes, and as a prime example, husbands can get rid of unwanted wives just by accusing them of adultery, whereby they are stoned to death.

Rape is endemic in many Muslim countries, where men consider it their right to violate a women whenever they please, for those of the female sex are there only to serve them. It is a matter of record that in the past three years no cases of rape have reached a satisfactory conclusion in the islands, and already this year three cases have been reported. It is said that one third of Maldives women have at one time or another been sexually assaulted.

It brings shame on Muslims world-wide when women can be raped at will and no man is punished for the crime, but a young girl of fifteen, a rape victim herself, receives 100 lashes for pre-marital sex. It just goes to prove what I have always thought, women are nothing more than objects to Muslim men, to be owned and used as they think fit.

I rather think that if The Prophet were ever to return, he would condemn every one of them to hell.

The Real Meaning Of Dirty Money

Posted in Britain, England, Europe, Health, Modern World, UK with tags , , , , , , on 27/03/2013 by floroy1942

No-one really likes to get their hands dirty, but we do that on a daily basis in more ways than one. I guess I wasn’t too surprised to read yesterday that money, apart from being the root of all evil, is also one of the filthiest things we handle day to day. Oxford University scientists carried out a series of tests on our money to find just how many bacteria the average banknote holds, and the results are surprising.

Dirty Money

Dirty Money

When asked, most people were of the opinion that money was dirty and spread disease, but now the full extent is known. You have no idea how many people have handled that £10 or €10 note you carry in your pocket, it is most likely tens of thousands for an older note. It could have been handled by everyone from a housewife to a sewage worker, and you will never know.

Gives New Meaning To 'Money Laundering!"

Gives New Meaning To ‘Money Laundering!”

The research, carried out across many European nations led to some startling conclusions. For example, Denmark has the dirtiest money in the whole of Europe with 40,266 different bacteria found on notes. The Euro was the cleanest with only 11,066 bacteria strains found. In between came the Swiss franc, the Russian ruble, The Polish zlotys, the UK pound, and the Norwegian krone in that order. On bank notes, bacteria like Klebsiella (which causes respiratory, urinary and wound infections) and Enterobacter species, which can cause disease were found, not that I have ever heard of either.

Money has so far not made me sick, in fact, I would not mind having a great deal more of it, just to test the theory of course! But for all those hypochondriacs out there I have this simple message – wear rubber gloves, or better still,  start paying everything with the card and wipe it clean after each use. That way you will only have your own germs to deal with.

Finally The UK Government Gets On The Right Track

Posted in Benefits, Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, England, Europe, Immigration, UK with tags , , , , , on 25/03/2013 by floroy1942

David Cameron has at last set out a whole raft of measures to combat the criminal misuse of public money in supporting immigrants who take advantage of Britain’s benefits system. The previous Labour government opened up the gates, and allowed a flood of individuals from foreign parts to come to Britain and live off the tax payer. Now finally, measures have been proposed to ‘stem the flood’. And about time too!

The Prime Minister proposes curbs on social housing, welfare, and health tourism among others, which will make it difficult for anyone to take advantage of the system. I hope he gets it right.

In what other country do you receive child benefits for children still living in your homeland? In what other country can you have more right to social housing over inhabitants from that country? In what other country can you get treatment for illnesses for free? The answer is none!

But such was the policy of Tony Blair and his band of crooks who initiated this policy in Britain. It is scandalous to say the least. That the British people should be robbed of housing, made to pay benefits for individuals living outside the country, and cough up for any individual from a foreign country who needs medical treatment is the most outrageous thing I have ever heard.

There are of course many more areas that are under scrutiny by the present government, and I for one hope they will push it all through as quickly as possible, for it is time to stop the rot and let common sense take over before the country, and more important, the people, are bled dry!

There is concern over what the European Union will say of these measures, but considering we have the most comprehensive system in the whole of Europe, and none of the other nations give away money to foreigners like we do, if they object, I would simply tell them to take their objections and shove ’em where the sun don’t shine!

When Will Muslims Tire Of Killing Each Other?

Posted in Afghanistan, Al Quada, America, Britain, Insurgents, Muslim, Sharia Law, Spain, Taliban with tags , , , , on 20/03/2013 by floroy1942

The Muslims have been killing each other ever since the  Taliban first took over Afghanistan in 1996, when they made  unparalleled attempts to enforce their version of strict Sharia Law on the country. Since that time Muslims have murdered each other unmercifully. al Quada and other offshoot groups have also spread fear through terrorist attacks in many countries of the world from Africa to Indonesia.

Taliban Execution

After bin Laden’s attacks on western countries failed to achieve the desired result, i.e. to incite the Muslim world into violence against the West, the group changed their tactics and have since been stirring up trouble in Arab countries beginning with Tunisia, Somalia, and then Egypt among others. Over the last decade we have seen their acts of terrorism turned against fellow Muslims, which has since blossomed into full sectarian violence.

In my view, after al Quada’s original attacks did not get the desired result, they turned inward and began fermenting trouble in Arab countries in the hope of gaining some form of control in one or more of them. Few intelligent people will deny their involvement in the current battles in Syria.

Recent Iraq Car Bomb Attack

But after all the killing that has gone on, it makes me wonder when the Muslim people themselves will stand together and tell these insurgents that enough is enough. Currently, in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria, people are dying in their hundreds, not only from al Quada and the Taliban, but from each other, as Sunnis and Shia car bomb each other daily. All the common people see of the conflict is their loved ones blasted out of existence by these mindless killers. And for what?

We in the West should naturally be grateful they are only killing each other, and not repeating the 9/11, London and Madrid bombings, but that is of little comfort when large populations are blowing each other up daily.

Peace seems a word without meaning in the world today and who knows when, and if, it will ever return. Is there no-one in the Muslim world who can see the suffering caused by these rabid individuals who have made it their life’s work killing innocents? It makes me want to shout to the Muslim world to stand together and banish this cancer in their midst, but from what I have seen and read, I think my voice would fall on deaf ears.

I am sure that should such inter-racial violence occur in the United States, Canada or anywhere in Europe, the people would rise up and demand a stop to the senseless killing. So what will it take for someone of stature and respect in the Muslim world to stand up and bring the people together in opposition to the killing of innocent Muslims by other Muslims?

First The Horse Meat Scandal, And Now Fish!

Posted in America, Atlantic, Britain, Environment, Europe, Health, Oceans, Pacific, UK, USA with tags , , , on 13/03/2013 by floroy1942
Tuna

Tuna

Many of our favourite dishes have been found to contain a high percentage of horse meat, instead of the labelled beef. In America, there is now a new and bigger scandal that involves fish products. An ocean protection group called Oceana, carried out a series of tests on many of the fish products commonly sold in the U.S.A. like tuna, red snapper, halibut and cod among others, and each was found to contain substitute fish.

Another major consideration is the contaminants in fish.

When testing was carried out on canned tuna, 59% of the contents were not tuna at all, but a substitute. In red snapper samples, a huge 87% was found to be a substitute, of which 85% was escolar, which can cause severe gastrointestinal problems. In America, this problem has been found in sushi bars, restaurants and grocery stores, and was found in 44% of all premises visited. ‘Mislabeled’ products were found in every sushi bar visited.

Take Your Pick!

At this moment the authorities are calling it ‘mislabeling’, but I have a suspicion that its pretty much the same as the horse meat scandal in Europe, i.e. where someone was hoping to make a lot of money by deliberately substituting cheap horse meat for beef.

Do You Think This Does Not Affect The Fish We Eat?

Do You Think This Does Not Affect The Fish We Eat?

Considering that many people are already put off fish by the incessant oil spills in ocean waters, the ever-growing contamination of our seas, and not forgetting the Fukushima nuclear disaster, its possible this will do even more damage to the industry.

However, these two scandals indicate to me that these days, some people will go to any lengths to ‘make a buck’, and as usual its the consumer that suffers.

Is May Right? Should We Ditch The EU Human Rights Laws?

Posted in Al Quada, Britain, Conservative Party, David Cameron, Europe, Human Rights, Immigration, Terrorism, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 10/03/2013 by floroy1942

Does Britain need Human Rights Laws? The short answer is definitely – Yes! But the long answer is – not in their current form! Theresa May, the Conservative Home Secretary has recently stated she would like to get rid of the European Human Rights Laws (EHRL) and have a set of British laws replace them. I agree.

Preaching Sedition And Hatred

Preaching Sedition And Hatred

For too long our justice system has been cheated, hampered and bamboozled by unscrupulous lawyers who use these laws to get their guilty clients off. Prime examples are the suspected terrorists, Abu Hamsa who evaded deportation to the USA for ten years, and Abu Qatada, who for more then ten years has used these same human rights laws to prevent deportation to Jordan to answer terrorists charges, and is still in the country.

There have been many such cases, and even those of ordinary criminals who have avoided prison by using the Strasbourg Human Rights Court to their advantage. It has to stop.

The Effect Of Human Rights Laws On British Justice

The Effect Of Human Rights Laws On British Justice

These laws, while necessary to prevent miscarriages of justice through discrimination and outlawing torture etc., are making a mockery of the British Justice System, which until the introduction of the Human Rights Act (HRA) was always considered fair.

Criminals are a lot smarter than they were decades ago, and lawyers have become much more dishonest in my opinion. The lawyers in particular, will use any and every trick in the book to get their clients off, sometimes, even when personally convinced of their guilt, and the HRA is exactly the tool they need.

I do not see how European lawyers based in Strasbourg, can have sufficient knowledge of a British court case in order to make a just judgement. It is known far and wide that the Strasbourg courts are woefully overstretched and cannot spend the necessary time on each case to make a proper decision.

I applaud Theresa May’s stance on this subject and think the move is fully justified, if many years late. Providing the replacement laws are just, and satisfy the legal requirements of both national and international law there is nothing wrong in this.

The only fly in the ointment is that it depends on a Conservative victory at the next election in two years time. The results of the mid-term elections held recently give a swing to Labour, but hopefully we need not read too much into this. A swing in the opposite direction is not unusual in mid-term elections, but we should be wary when the real election comes.

Tony Blair and his band of crooks did more damage to the British nation than any other government in its long history. During their previous term their immigration policies damaged the country to such an extent as to be beyond repair, and I would hope the people remember, and are not stupid enough to want more of the same by voting them back in again.

No Justice Here!

No Justice Here!

It is always difficult when a political party is left with the task of clearing up devastation inherited from the previous government, for it takes time. I will not say that the current Conservative/Liberal Coalition is perfect, not by a long way, but it is clear they are trying to solve the mess left behind by Brown and his Labour assassins. It will however be a long task and we should give them time.

I for one hope the Tories do get in again, if only to see these ridiculous European laws given the boot and replaced with something more sensible. If the other members of the European Union want to moan and groan, let them. Why should we care!

The Inhumanity Of Sharia Law

Posted in Afghanistan, Arab, Britain, Child Abuse, Human Rights, Muslim, Sharia Law, Taliban, UK, USA with tags , , , on 01/03/2013 by floroy1942

Like millions of others, I was shocked when three years ago I read about the mutilation of a young Afghanistan girl whose husband had cut off her nose and ears as punishment for

Aesha Mohammadzai Before Surgery

running away from his abusive family while he was away fighting with the Taliban. Such a tragic story is almost beyond belief, but like so many unbelievable things, it happened.

After Surgery

After Surgery

Now after three years the girl Aesha Mohammadzai, now a young woman, has a new nose. It is a modern success story that will gladden the heart of many, for she will no longer have to bear the despicable scars of her inhuman treatment at the hands of her husband.

This is just one of the horror stories that emerge on a regular basis from Islamic nations that carry the torch for this despicable form of justice. We condemned with all our power the barbaric acts of the Nazi’s with their death camps so long ago, but it is evident that in the Islamic world, barbarity is still common practice. It is embedded in Islamic culture, for it forms an integral part of their religion. We in the west can do nothing to stop this barbarity under those circumstances. We must stand by on the sidelines until the Islamic people themselves decide to change.

Afghan Women Beaten By The Taliban

Afghan Women Beaten By The Taliban

The dangerous side to this ideology, is that they want to subjugate the western world with it too, and have Sharia Law imposed in every country across the globe. They will never achieve this of course, but they will willingly die trying. You could argue that the people of the western world will never bow down to this disgraceful rule of law, but on the other hand, the rule of the gun is a powerful persuader.

To Be Stoned To Death

To Be Stoned To Death

By far the worst perpetrators are the jihad groups like the Taliban, who interpret Sharia to suit their own ends. They have been guilty of hundreds of atrocities during the time they held power in Afghanistan, and still do it today when they descend on villages, even though they are a hunted group. They have disfigured women with acid and beaten women half to death for so-called infractions of the strict laws that women must submit to in the Islamic world. A woman only needs to be accused of adultery for them to bury her up to the waist and have the villagers throw stones at her until she dies. Many husbands have used this excuse to get rid of unwanted wives.

Public Hanging

Public Hanging

Even in the state of Saudi Arabia there have been instances of public beheadings, and in others, criminals and homosexuals are hung from any convenient lamp-post or crane in full public view.

The plight of women in Arabic states is particularly distressing however, for they have no redress against whatever they are accused of. Women are, more often than not, chattels with less standing than the village dog, and are wholly dependent on the goodwill of their menfolk. A daughter has no choice but to obey to the letter what her father tells her and must marry whoever he chooses.

American Honour Killings

American Honour Killings

There have been numerous cases of young women, and even children, who have been slaughtered by their parents for doing things like talking to a boy without a chaperone. Even the UK and America have had cases where young women have been murdered for wearing inappropriate clothing i.e. western attire, or refusing to marry their father’s choice. In some instances a father will promise his daughter to someone to pay off a debt, such is the depths to which these people will stoop.

Until the women of the Arab world stand united and demand their rights as human beings, things will never change in this barbaric society, and the women in particular will continue to suffer.
