Say Goodbye To Elephants and Rhinoceros

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Nature, News, Torture, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 25/09/2016 by floroy1942

The fact that we are destroying our world is becoming more and more evident, and I don’t mean the atmospheric, land and ocean pollution. From reports out today it would seem that we are destroying the world’s animals too at an ever increasing rate.

The Decline In The Elephant Population

The Decline In The Elephant Population

In particular I am writing about elephants and rhinoceros in Africa where 30% have been destroyed in the last seven years. If this keeps up, in 15 years time there will be none left, and like so many other species, they will disappear into history.

Whatever you like to think about this, mankind is the most destructive force on the planet, and taking that into consideration the planet will not survive must longer, or at least we won’t.

These animals are killed for their horns which some Far Eastern countries like China, Indonesia and Vietnam, believe can be made into a miracle cure for all sorts of diseases. How they arrived at this conclusion is beyond me, for none of it is true and science has proved it. When you take it down to the bare bones, its all about profit and making money.

Walking through the tourist areas of Far Eastern cities you find sculptures carved from the horns of elephants and rhino’s, all to attract sales from the gullible tourists. Buying such things just assists the destruction of these wild animals.

We have lost 42 species of animals and birds in just the 20th century, including the Barbary Lion, various species of tiger, the Kamchatka bear, Dawson’s caribou, the Greenland reindeer plus a host of birds and insects. They are all gone never to return.

Some people call this progress, but the tragic reality is that we are destroying our world at an ever-increasing pace. The sad thing is, nobody cares. I am in my latter years, but nobody thinks about what our children and their children will face with the legacy we are leaving them.

A Rhino De-Horned But Left Alive

A Rhino De-Horned But Left Alive

One by one the animals and birds of the world are disappearing and the rate has increased ten-fold in the last 100 years. Not only that, but we are poisoning our atmosphere, the ground, and the oceans at an ever increasing rate. What does that say for the future of this planet and our children?

Billed as the largest gathering in the 43-year history of the convention, the 17th Conference of the Parties will see more than 2,500 delegates from more than 180 countries come together in Johannesburg. What will they achieve? In my estimation, very little. We have had these talking shops so many times in the past, but all have achieved nothing on the grand scale of things.

In my opinion, the only way to put an end to this mindless shooting of elephants and rhino’s for profit is for all countries to make it a capital offence. When caught you will be hung.

An Ivory Carving

An Ivory Carving

The governments of the Far East must close down all these ‘doctors’ who prescribe ointments and such made from tusks and ensure they never practice again. All tourist shops selling items made from ivory should have their stock confiscated and destroyed.

I know many will think this is impossible, and it probably is, but we must do something to save these species of animals. Once all the elephants and rhino’s have disappeared what will these people turn to next? Your guess is as good as mine.

Breast Ironing – The Barbaric Torture Of Young Girls

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, Health, Immigrants, News, Parenting, Torture with tags , , , , on 10/04/2016 by floroy1942

I have come to the conclusion that in many countries some people are still barbaric beyond description. It is unbelievable that in this day and age countries still hold on to torture as a way of life. I wrote some time ago about the genital mutilation of young girls by Muslim families, but now I discovered that there are other forms of torture that are traditional.

Breast Ironing Using A Hot Rock

Breast Ironing Using A Hot Rock

One of these is breast ironing which is prevalent in some African countries and is carried out by immigrants in Britain today. The general idea is to prevent the natural growth of breasts in young girls, and involves them having their breasts beaten, burnt and massaged in order to stop them developing.

The reason for this is to make young girls and women less attractive to the opposite sex so they can concentrate on school work. Really, of all the excuses I have ever heard this must be one of the most ridiculous.

One young woman said, “They put a spatula on the fire and then they press it on the breast, and yes, it hurts. Then it goes weak, it’s like melting, fat melting and you can feel the breast going back.” Once this is completed they often have their breasts bound tightly to prevent any further growth.

All this torture just so they can concentrate on their school lessons, and prevent them being attractive to young boys? What sort of animals are these people?

Tightly Bound To Prevent Natural Growth

Tightly Bound To Prevent Natural Growth

Experts are of the opinion that such torture can lead to cysts, abscesses, and even breast cancer. Geraldine Yenwo, the founder of Came Women and Girls Development Organisation said, “A lot of them have inverted nipples, they’re not able to breastfeed their children. Emotionally and psychologically, your self-esteem is very badly affected. Physically, some of them have one large and one flattened breast.”

Conservative MP Jake Berry is requesting the government make such actions illegal, and so it should be. Those responsible for such acts should be locked away for a very long time, for this type of torture does not belong in the modern age, much the same as genital mutilation.

What Can Often Be The End Result

What Can Often Be The End Result

I know that there are many backward civilizations in the world, but to intentionally mutilate your children seems to me beyond bizarre, and it makes you wonder why this sort of tradition ever became ‘normal’ with some people.

Slave Labour In Saudi Arabia

Posted in Equality, Human Rights, Immigrants, Justice, Muslim, News, Ransom, Religion, Saudi Arabia, Torture with tags , , , , on 10/05/2015 by floroy1942
Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad

Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad

It seldom reaches the news pages, but in Saudi Arabia thousands of young Indonesian girls and women are working as virtual slaves in the homes of wealthy Saudi’s.

Until recently it was common practice for the family they were working for to confiscate their passports and keep them a virtual prisoner. They were paid little for working almost 24 hour a day and time off was almost non-existent. They were totally at the mercy of those that ’employed’ them.

Reading an article from last year I came across the fact that one such person, 41 year-old Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad had eventually snapped and killed her employer, stole 37,970 Saudi Arabian riyal (£6,140) and fled the house. Although she has always claimed she acted in self-defence, she was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death by the Saudi court – unless her family paid the sum of seven million riyal in ‘blood money’ to the family. From the report it would seem that this is acceptable practice under Islāmic Law.

Her family immediately tried to raise this ‘blood money’ from donations but fell far short of the target. Thankfully the Indonesian government stepped in and paid the al-Garib family their ransom.

Saudi Execution

Saudi Execution

From the report it seems that it is not uncommon for Indonesian women to be in this situation, for at the time of the report there are some 246 migrant workers on death row awaiting execution. The Indonesian government says it has so far saved 176 migrants from the death penalty by paying the ransom.

After saving Satinah Binti Jumadi Ahmad the Indonesian government entered into negotiations with the Saudi government to try and improve the living standards of its citizens working in the country. According to the Human Rights Watch, in February of this year negotiations were agreed that allowed Indonesian domestic workers to keep their passports, communicate with families, have time off and get paid monthly. Mind you, for the government to agree to this and have the affected families follow the new rules is something else again.

With all their money it would hardly seem credible that wealthy Saudi families would stoop so low as to keep what accounts to a slave in their house. It is clear that in Saudi immigrants have little or no rights whatsoever. It does not surprise me that eventually some individuals snap and kill their employer when forced to work under such conditions. Having to take beatings day after day is not what I would call ’employment’.

We Sentence You To Be Paralyzed

Posted in Arab, Human Rights, Insanity, Justice, Modern World, Muslim, Religion, Sharia Law, Torture with tags , , , on 05/04/2013 by floroy1942

I have often written of the bestiality of Sharia Law as do others, but yesterday’s news from Saudi Arabia, a so-called civilized nation, is disgraceful. Admittedly, the man in question attacked another with a knife that left the victim paralyzed, but now a Sharia Court has sentenced the assailant to be medically paralyzed. The call came from relatives of the victim who claimed this be done under the ‘eye for an eye’ law in Sharia.

Many medical practitioners in the country refused to carry out the operation, but it seems they have at last found one who was willing to do the surgery.

Naturally, the victim has my full sympathy, but to deliberately cause the offender to suffer this is barbaric to say the least. Lock him away, give him hard labour by all means but not this. He has already served ten years in prison while the courts tried to find a willing medical team, but now the search is over.

This is just a single case from an entire history of such abuses. People have had their eyes gouged out, hands chopped off, teeth removed, public flogging and not to forget the stoning to death of women. Its like Muslims are living in the Middle Ages and not the 21st century.

The question is, will it ever change? I would say there is little chance of that because it is embedded in their religion, and no matter how much we protest at this inhumanity it will never change. It is without doubt a sad indictment of today’s world.

UN Investigator – Death Penalty Is Torture! Really?

Posted in America, Britain, Europe, Human Rights, Modern World, Prison, Torture, UK, USA with tags , , , on 25/10/2012 by floroy1942

As the years go by I sometimes think the world is getting crazier by the minute. There are so many loonies loose in society today who all want to be taken seriously that it makes me wonder which part of the woodwork they spring from. Now we have a UN investigator called Juan Mendez who considers the death sentence for criminals amounts to torture because it inflicts physical and mental pain on those about to die. My answer to that is: So what!

A Grieving Family

A Grieving Family

We have over the last thirty years or so entered a time where more thought is given to the murderers, torturers and rapists than to the victims. Many governments are looking to the Human Rights Act which gives everyone a ‘right to life’, even sadists and mass murderers. If Hitler and his SS buddies were alive today they would have received a paltry prison sentence and been back out on the streets. The pendulum has swung so far the other way that nobody gives a hoot for the loss of life, the pain and suffering of the victims of crime caused by mindless acts of violence.

In many people’s minds we cannot possibly condemn a vicious rapist, mass murderer or torturer to death because that is cruel punishment. Instead they prefer to house them in a comfortable prison at the tax payers expense for the rest of their miserable lives. In very many countries the prison system is overloaded and costs the tax payer billions a year just to keep them off the streets and yet they would never cause any more heartache and pain if they received a just sentence – i.e. the death penalty. “An eye for an eye” as the good book tells us.

UK Prisoner - Snooker Anyone?

UK Prisoner – Snooker Anyone?

But this is something the human rights idiots have been able to latch on to and gain some success for some ungodly reason. But what makes me angry is the total lack of sympathy for the victims of vicious crime and grieving parents. The justice systems in most western countries seems so intent on making sure the perpetrator has his ‘human rights’ respected that those of the victims are mostly brushed aside.

The Face Of A Callous Killer

I wrote some time ago about an Iraqi illegal immigrant who came to Britain and entered a life of crime stretching over a number of years and had served several terms in prison. One day he struck a 12 year-old girl with his car and when he stopped she was alive, but trapped under the wheels of his car. Instead of helping her he dragged her along the road for several yards as he drove off and left her to die in the road. He was caught and appeared before the judge who gave him a four-month prison sentence. He had previously been sentenced to deportation for earlier offences, but this is where the Human Rights Act enters the story. Because he had married an English girl after one of his prison sentences and had two children with her, he could no longer be deported because he claimed ‘the right to family life’ under Article Eight of the act. It was bad enough that he got only a four-month prison sentence for killing the child while banned from driving for earlier offences, but then the law could not even deport him for his string of criminal activities when he was illegal in the first place. Such is the state of the law today.

A Buffoon - Juan Mendez

A Buffoon – Juan Mendez

And now we have Senor Mendez decrying the death penalty because is is too cruel on the criminals. He is quoted as saying, “States (i.e. American states) need to re-examine their procedures under international law because the ability of states to impose and carry out the death penalty is diminishing as these practices are increasingly viewed to constitute torture.” He also said, “there was no such thing as a pain-free form of execution, which makes it difficult to reject the idea that it is a form of torture”.

He seems to forget that we all have to face up to the fact that not everyone is the same, and there are in society many people with ‘sick’ minds who like the prospect of inflicting pain and suffering on people, and before any of the Human Rights lobby want to make a case of the ‘sick’ word, let me explain that I mean perverted, malicious and evil.

American Cell - The Bare Necessities

American Cell – The Bare Necessities

Personally, I don’t give a rat’s backside if some sadist or mass murderer feels a little ‘uncomfortable’ as he receives a lethal injection or gets the noose or firing squad, to hell with his feelings and pain, he brought it on himself and must pay a just penalty. If it hurts it sure as hell won’t last as long as his victims pain, and that of the grieving family!

Too Few Countries Still Have The Death Penalty

Too Few Countries Still Have The Death Penalty

Really, what would this idiot Mendez have the courts do, wrap them in cotton wool, slap them on the wrist and send them to a holiday camp? Oh sorry, they do that already, and call them prisons. To deter the vicious cycle of violence we find ourselves in, due to the weakness of many countries justice systems, we need now more than ever the deterrent of the death penalty. In the old days when the death sentence was in full use, without the condemned spending years on Death Row I might add,  we had one hundredth of the murders and vicious killings we do now. There is a lesson there!

India’s Shame – The Starving Children

Posted in Britain, Child Abuse, Children, Health, Human Rights, News, Nuclear Proliferation, Nuclear Weapons, Torture, UK with tags , , , , on 24/11/2011 by floroy1942

In a country that has seen enormous economic growth in the last decade, has nuclear weapons and a space programme, its hard to imagine that 41.6% of its people are reliant on foreign aid to keep them alive.

India´s Economy – Set for 8.5% Growth Per Year

Since 2000, the economic wealth of India has grown to the extent that it is now the ninth largest economy in the world, and fourth largest in terms of purchasing power, and yet many of its children are starving to death.

India first tested a nuclear bomb in 1974 and now has an arsenal of such weapons. Year on year the government is spending billions of dollars to develop, aircraft, aircraft carriers and submarines as a means to deliver them, and yet many of its children are dying of hunger.

Space Programme – More Important Than Children´s Lives?

The country also has an expensive space programme which has put up several satellites, the first being Aryabhata, launched in 1975 aboard a Russian rocket, and yet the children of India are starving to death.

With hardship so widespread in India, some 41.6% of the population are living below the poverty line according to 2005 figures, it is hard to imagine that the country can afford the extravagance of nuclear weapons and a space programme, but such is the mind of governments!

Looking For Scraps

Ever since India joined the free-market economies of the world, it has seen a massive increase in the middle class sector, due for the most part to the country embracing modern technology and providing services to other countries. The destitute have however been left far behind in this growth, for India has more starving people than the whole of Africa. Recent estimates put the number of people  below the poverty line in Africa at 410 million, while in India the figure is 645 million. The latest population estimates indicate India has in excess of 1.2 billion inhabitants which makes it the second largest country after China  in terms of inhabitants.

Ever since 1947 when India was given independence by the British Parliament, our government, among others, has been pumping aid money into the country to the tune of hundreds of millions of pounds every year. The present government under David Cameron has elected to continue paying £280 million a year until 2015 into the coffers of the Indian government in New Delhi. India has one of the largest food aid programmes in the world.

Ultimately Responsible?

What is now under discussion, is what happens to that money?

This is where the ancient beast corruption raises its head once again. Not surprisingly, it is not only the low level workers that are stealing aid intended for the poorest families, but many government officials who are supposed to oversee distribution.

Desperate For Food

Rations Packs intended for the most needy children are being systematically hi-jacked on route and sold on the black market as, believe it or not, animal feed. In the meantime, the poor, for whom this aid means life or death, are dying from malnutrition to the tune of two million a year. Some 61 million children (48%) in India suffer from stunted growth due to malnutrition.

A Mother and Dying Child

I really have no idea if this is the Indian governments macabre idea of population control, or if it is just plain greed and corruption, but I hope it’s the latter. Whichever way you look at it, many people are getting obscenely rich over the corpses of the country’s young. Also, it seems to me we are doing nothing more than footing the bill for their nuclear and space programmes, for the one thing that seems to be missing is a sense of priorities.

British Sanctuary For Torturers? What Next?

Posted in Benefits, Britain, England, Europe, Extradition, Human Rights, Insanity, Justice, Political Correctness, Torture, UK with tags , , , , , , , on 27/05/2011 by floroy1942

What a shame no-one told bin Laden about the pitiful state of British and European Human Rights Laws, for had he claimed sanctuary we could not possibly have refused!

It has just been revealed that one of the vicious torturers working for dictator Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, has been granted the right to stay in the UK at tax payers expense indefinitely because he claims his ‘human rights’ would be threatened if he was deported from Britain.

Phillip Machemedze Living In Fishpond – Bristol

Among the reported exploits of Phillip Machemedze’s  are the following: He smashed the jaw of one victim with a pair of pliers before pulling out all the persons teeth, he gave electric shocks to a white farmer and whipped a woman before rubbing salt into her wounds. He is also known to have taken part in the ‘slow’ killing of one of Mugabe’s political rivals.

Zimbabwe Torture Report:

Torture in Zimbabwe

It would seem Machemedze ‘grew tired’ of his job as enforcer for Mugabe some eleven years ago, and with his wife moved to Britain on a temporary visa. The pair claimed asylum after Machemedze was said to have fallen out with Mugabe and feared for his life if returned. Both have been receiving HIV treatment at the tax payers expense ever since.

During the original judgement that allowed the pair to stay in the UK indefinitely, Judge Robert Martin said; “It is true that Phillip Machemedze committed abhorrent acts and deserves no sympathy or favours, however, it is also true that we are bound by the European Convention on Human Rights, and Articles 2 and 3 are absolute.” .

Will Mugabe Himself Be Next?

When the Home Office lodged an appeal against the ruling the asylum appeal Judge, Mr. Justice Davis Archer said of Machemedze; “Whatever crimes he has committed he cannot be returned to face the highly likely prospect of torture and execution without trial.”

Zimbabwe Torture Victims

To me, this ruling makes it very clear that European lawmakers need to take a long hard look at the laws they are responsible for, because it cannot be right in any society that we must not only harbour, but also give succour, to such a man as this. He deserves to be deported back to Zimbabwe and suffer the same pain he inflicted so joyfully upon others.

If monsters such as this can use our human rights laws to claim sanctuary, then the system has to be badly flawed. Like the protection given to radical Muslim priests and insurgents, this is disgraceful.
