Islam Barbaric? Judge For Yourself.

c044b23d3c886704763648f95a7638e1I was appalled today to read the news about a young Indonesian woman who was publicly caned for affectionate contact with a male friend. In front of hundreds of baying and cheering watchers, 20 year-old Nur Elita, a university student, was made to kneel and suffer severe agony when she received five lashes with a cane before being rushed off to hospital for treatment of her wounds. It was clear that not one of the crowd had any sympathy for the poor girl.

Her friend, 23-year-old Wahyudi Saputra received the same treatment. It would seem that both of them broke Sharia Law for being ‘too close’ and therefore had to be punished. Five men also received lashes because they had been gambling, also forbidden under Sharia Law.

Banda Aceh Deputy Mayor Zainal Arifin said of the incident, “Take these punishments as a lesson. What has been done by these convicts should not be taken as an example. And to the public, I ask that you do not isolate those who have been convicted here today. And also, those who have been convicted are reminded not to repeat the same mistakes,”

Aceh is the only Indonesian province to follow the full Sharia Law. This has been felt by the populace in many ways, including schools being forced to teach boys and girls separately as Sharia requires. Another city in the province even went so far as to ban women from sitting astride a motorcycle when riding behind a male driver.

These acts certainly reinforce the notion that Islam is still living in the middle ages, and really it is no surprise that all Muslims are brainwashed from birth. As soon as they are old enough to hold and read a book they are made to study the Qur’an and told they must live by these standards. From the moment they begin attending school the brainwashing continues as they are taught to follow the teachings of Islam and the mighty Allah. There is no such thing as freedom of choice for these children, for they must follow the ways of Allah or be severely beaten until they do.

To me this is not a religion, for its followers have no freedom of choice to live as they please, but must abide by the teachings of the Qur’an. Sharia Law is without doubt the most vengeful and despicable form of law in the world.

I am well aware that our own system of Justice is deeply flawed, but at least it does not contain the sheer barbarity of Sharia sentences like the stoning to death of women or inflicting terrible pain on a person through means of the lash. This young woman received only five lashes, but it is not unknown for some to be condemned to one hundred lashes. Those that do usually die before the sentence is completed.

Muslims can make all the excuses they wish, but to me this is a medieval form of law that should be outlawed across the world. This kind of system does not belong in the present day where mankind has made so many advances, and yet these people want to bring it to western countries where they are steadily gaining more power as time passes.

Even now in Britain there are many areas that are totally controlled by Muslims who have introduced Sharia Law even though it is against British law. The police do nothing about this for fear of upsetting the Muslims. As the months and years pass these areas are slowly being expanded until eventually a British person will not dare to enter certain towns.

With the mass influx of refugees this year it will not be long before Germany and other European nations begin to see the same pattern emerging. Within a year or two certain areas of many cities will be ‘no go’ areas for the indigenous population, and even the police as in the U.K.

Should the Muslims ever gain full control of a European country and invoke Sharia Law, the local inhabitants will not know what hit them.

Slave Labour In Saudi Arabia

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’.

Australia’s Sneaky Tactic To Stop The Drug Execution!

Posted in America, Australia, Britain, Europe, Human Rights, Justice, News, Politics, Prison, United Nations with tags , , , , on 04/05/2015 by floroy1942
Thankfully!

Thankfully!

It is to me unfathomable that any nation would stoop to sneaky tactics to stop the execution of two of their nationals accused of drug running in a foreign country. But that is exactly what Australia did in the case of Chan and Sukumaran in Indonesia. These two, along with seven others, were accused of smuggling drugs in Indonesia and executed by firing squad last Wednesday, and before that time the Australian government was trying every tactic in the book to get the executions stopped.

Now it has come to light that their Minister For Foreign Affairs, Julie Bishop has said that the executions were illegal under international law! In an effort to get the executions stopped she tried to get the case heard by the International Court, but to do that she needed the agreement of the Indonesian government. She sent a request for the hearing to them but they did not respond.

Julie Bishop - A Foolish Woman

Julie Bishop – A Foolish Woman

She had received advice from ANU academic Don Rothwell and Sydney barrister Chris Ward that the men’s execution was illegal under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which Indonesia signed in 2006. According to them the accused could only be executed for ‘the most serious crimes’.

According to legal safeguards added to the treaty in 1984, and according to the advice commissioned for Chan and Sukumaran’s legal team and provided to Ms Bishop, “Drug trafficking does not constitute such a crime when it involves no prima facie harm or violence to another person. (WHAT???) We concede that one of the possible consequences of the trafficking of drugs is self-abuse of the drug, possibly resulting in death. (Oh how magnanimous of you!) However, this is an event which is considerably removed from the actual trafficking of the drugs and ultimately involves an act of self-choice by the drug user.” Cobblers! Who tries their hardest to get someone on drugs? The dealers who receive their supplies from the likes of Chan and Sukumaran.

The accusations went further by claiming Indonesia subjected the criminals to “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment” which is also against the covenant. Professor Rothwell and Dr Ward also pointed out that “execution by way of firing squad, the men’s treatment over 10 years in jail, the Attorney-General H.M. Prasetyo’s decision to execute prisoners in large groups ‘described by Indonesia as batches, in the presence of each other and before a massed group of executioners’, and repeated comments in the lead-up that the deaths were ‘imminent’, ‘will not be delayed’, may be ‘this week’, and that ‘on-going legal processes would not be respected’ were all cruel and inhuman.” Pile it on boys pile it on!

For myself I have never heard such a load of tosh in my life. So they were Australian nationals, so what. They got caught and had to pay the price. Tough! You know what they say, “If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime!”

Chan Family Arrive Back In Sydney

Now the papers are filled with hand-wringing, tear-filled photo’s of the coffins and family arriving back in Australia. I suppose next we will be hearing they are to be given a state funeral because of their suffering at the hands of those dastardly Indonesian! Get this through your head Australia – THEY WERE DRUG SMUGGLERS!

I have no pity for these people because of the death and misery they sow by making these drugs available, even to small children! They do not have a moments thought for the thousands that die every day from drugs. They just smile and pocket the cash, and we are supposed to feel sorry for them?

Now there is more sympathy for these two animals than for a single victim of drug taking. Putting them out of business has quite possibly saved the lives of very many teens who would otherwise have been mentally destroyed, or even died using their smuggled drugs.

What Happens When A Pregnant Women Does Drugs!

What Happens When A Pregnant Women Does Drugs!

I for one would like to know how these tearful sympathizers would think if their son or daughter had died from a drug overdose! But typical of today’s common attitude, it happened to someone else so who cares!

Now the newspapers are full (37 photo’s in one paper) of the family arriving at Sydney airport along with the coffins of the two drug smugglers. To see so much attention given to two men, who with their partners conspired to destroy lives is sickening. I guess the family would have had no qualms about spending the money these two made with their vile trade.

Thankfully all the hand-wringing and tears will not bring this pair back, for they have paid the ultimate price for their cold-hearted crimes.

Hypocrisy Beyond Belief!

Posted in America, Australia, Brazil, Britain, European Union, Extradition, Justice, News, Police, United Nations with tags , , , , on 30/04/2015 by floroy1942

I just cannot believe the magnitude of hypocrisy shown by the Australian government on the execution of the drug dealers that took place yesterday. It is well known that the gangs arrest in Indonesia was based on information provided by the Australian police, and now they are coming under fire from the government for providing it!

How Would He Feel If One Of HIS Children Died From Drugs?

How Would He Feel If One Of HIS Children Died From Drugs?

The Australian Police Force (AFP) is being summoned by a parliamentary committee to explain why they gave the information to the Indonesian authorities knowing that the death sentence was used in that country. It would seem that guidelines used by the police must take into consideration whether or not the country receiving the information has the death penalty.

Executed - At Least They Will Bring No More Harm To Vulnerable People

Executed – At Least They Will Bring No More Harm To Vulnerable People

So you could say that if a mass murderer is known to the police, escapes to another country and commits a further crime there, while the police of that country are investigating the AFP cannot pass on the information if the recipient country has the death penalty! Unbelievable!

The AFP guidelines set out by the Labour Party in 2010 state, “When the police are giving information to overseas law enforcement agencies about suspected criminals they must take into account the degree of risk to the person in providing the information, including the likelihood the death penalty would be imposed.”

So what this means in effect, is that the Aussie police should not have passed on the information because Indonesia has the death penalty, which would have allowed the gang to continue operating.

David Feeney - A Seriously Misguided Man

David Feeney – A Seriously Misguided Man

When the 2014 directive from the justice minister for the Tony Abbott government, Michael Keenan was released it did not include this restriction. Opposition justice spokesman David Feeney has said it should be included as a ‘matter of urgency’. He said, “We must do all we can to protect Australians from the threat of the death penalty, and to campaign for the global abolition of this cruel punishment”.

All I can say is ‘good luck with that’ for it will never happen. How Mr. Feeney are you going to persuade countries like North Korea, China and the USA etc to give up the death sentence?

It would seem that Mr. Feeney does not have a thought in his head for the family members of those that are killed by drugs or murdered or raped. His attitude seems to be “Oh dear! What a shame, never mind!” We must care for the perpetrators of these crimes!

An Accurate Description

An Accurate Description

I applaud those countries that have not given in to the wishy-washy ‘Do-Gooders’ and ‘Politically Correct’ brigades, like those that abound here in Europe for example who are slowly strangling our democracy.

Abbot In Mourning?

Abbot In Mourning?

Within a day or so the two Australian drug gang leaders bodies will arrive back in Australia for burial, and I am putting my money on them being given a ‘hero’s’ welcome with major outpouring of grief from the people and the government. It would not surprise me if Abbot, or some other government official attended the funeral!

It is sickening to the ‘enth’ degree when people react in this way. They were drug smugglers plain and simple, and they deserved the death penalty for all the pain and misery they cause in the world.

Ban Ki Moon - Sorrow That A Drug Gang Received The Death Penalty?

Ban Ki Moon – Sorrow That A Drug Gang Received The Death Penalty?

Right now, no-one in the Australian government has a single thought for the tens of thousands of lives that are either lost or destroyed because of these evil people. It makes my blood boil to read of the reactions of the Australian, French and Brazilian governments among others, and of course not forgetting that idiot Ban Ki Moon of the U.N. who all protested at their sentence.

According to the latest news reports as many as 30 people a day die from drugs in Indonesia alone. I wonder what the figure would be world-wide?

And yet these governments are so filled with sympathy for the accused, who have caused misery for so many families. It’s just shameful!

Sentenced To Hang - UK 1950

Sentenced To Hang – UK 1950

Much as I hate to repeat myself, I have said in other posts that it is time for all nations to bring back the death penalty for drug crimes, killers, serial rapists and terrorism.

In my day you could count the number of murders in a year on your fingers alone because ‘death by hanging’ was a great deterrent. But since that is gone we have murders almost every day of the week because there is no deterrent! Its time to turn back the clock!

The Last Day of Life

Posted in America, Australia, Britain, European Union, Human Rights, Justice, News, Police, Politics, Prison with tags , , , , on 28/04/2015 by floroy1942

Much of today’s news is about the execution of the nine drug traffickers in Indonesia which has hit the headlines constantly over the past weeks. According to reports they were to be executed at 6pm today British Standard Time, so as I write they should have been put before the firing squad and shot to death just 23 minutes ago.

The news of late has been filled with protestations from the governments of those concerned. Chief among them have been Australia and France who have ‘demanded’ that they not be executed.  Further protests have been lodged by the governments of the USA and Great Britain among others.

As I said in my previous post on this subject, foreign powers should stay out of dictating to any country what to do with criminals that have been found guilty of crimes.

https://floroy1942.wordpress.com/2015/02/25/back-off-australia/

In my view, if Indonesia wishes to execute these drug dealers then that is their right and it is not for foreign governments to dictate otherwise.

So there are two Australian citizens and a French citizen among the criminals – So What! It was a tip-off from the Australian police that got them caught in the first place. They did the crime and now they must pay.

Currently there is more thought given to this drug gang than for the thousands of lives they could have ruined if their vile drugs had reached the shores of Australia. Its pathetic!

Why Don’t Muslims Condemn The Terrorists?

Posted in Afghanistan, Al Quada, America, Arab, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Religion, Taliban, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , on 25/06/2012 by floroy1942

All across the arab world insurgents are killing fellow Muslims in audacious attacks and bombings almost on a daily basis, and since the trouble began, more than ten thousand Muslim people have lost their lives in Iraq alone. Families have been devastated, communities ripped apart in countries ranging from Algeria and Afghanistan to Indonesia. I don’t know about you, but to date I haven’t heard a single word of condemnation of these terrorist acts from a single Muslim from whatever country.

Algeria

Muslim groups and clerics across the globe remain silent, and even individuals suffering at the hands of these murderers refuse to come out and say “It must end!” Many learned clerics will tell you that to kill a fellow Muslim, and indeed the whole idea of insurgency, is against the teaching of the Prophet Mohammed because Islam is a religion of peace. Yet groups like al Quada and the Taliban have been creating mayhem across the world for decades and only the Taliban seem to have a specific goal in mind. It is clear they wish to be in control of Afghanistan once again, but al Quada?

Originally they wanted to attack the infidels in the west, particularly the United States which they did on 9/11, but after their later attacks on London and Madrid all their atrocities have been against fellow Muslims in one country or another. Currently it is pretty certain they are involved in the Syrian uprising and are stoking the flames as hard as they can, whether this is to gain some political influence in the country, or they just see it as an excuse to go on killing is anyone’s guess. Whatever the reason, I wonder why the arab people still continue to support these killers.

Mumbai

It may not always be active support, although they get enough of that, but just the fact they accept losing a wife, husband or child to an al Quada or Taliban bomb and say and do nothing is amazing. I am sure that should such occurrences take place in our part of the world the people would be up in arms and the perpetrators would have no-where to hide. Not only that, but the law would come down hard on such people and the police would go to any lengths to apprehend the suspect/s. There is little doubt that western people would never tolerate indiscriminate killing on such a scale as is seen in arab countries.The Norwegian Andrei Brevik saga and many of the shootings in the USA are a good case in point.

I have tried to understand what it is that makes Muslims world-wide accept these random acts of terror in which so many of their own are killed, but to be honest I cannot find the answer.

Could it be the fear factor? Is it possible that Muslims the world over are too frightened to condemn the activities of radical insurgents for fear of reprisals? I find this hard to believe considering that 23% of the world population is Muslim, which equates to over 1.6 billion people. With such large numbers the insurgents would not stand a chance.

As A Muslim Do You Condone This?

Perhaps it’s a religious thing, with all Muslims believing that non-Muslims are a sub species and should be eradicated, the favourite message of the radicals. No, that too is unlikely as most seem content to live side-by-side with Christians, Buddhists, Hindu’s and the like. The only exception that could carry any weight is perhaps Judaism, for the hatred between Israel and the arab world goes back centuries.

Maybe it is an arab tribal thing, Sunni’s against Shiites and vice versa? This is much more likely for it is well known that many arab countries are ruled by one side while the other forms a large majority in the country. We have seen trouble in Bahrain where the Shiite majority has risen up against the ruling Sunni regime, and the opposite has happened in other countries.

This does not fully explain the troubles in Iraq however, for while some terrorist attacks fall without doubt into the ‘tribal war’ bracket, others are purported to be against the foreign occupiers of the land, i.e. the Coalition Forces, and particularly the United States. Within Iraq the lines between the two are certainly blurred, for whatever target the insurgents choose, they always seem to kill far more of their own than the ‘occupiers’.

Terror Escalation In Afghanistan

Afghanistan is another different scenario, and is much more straight-forward. Here it is the intention of the Taliban to once more rule the country with the iron fist, as they did from 1996 to 2001. They were ousted by a UN invasion force in 2001 during the ‘War on Terror’, for giving safe haven to the terrorist group al Quada and its leader bin Laden. Since that time a ceaseless struggle has continued between Coalition Forces and the Taliban for control of the country.

Initially, all attacks by the Taliban were against Coalition Forces, but over the last eighteen months or so there has been a subtle change in tactics, and now more than ever the targets are innocent civilians. What they hope to gain by killing their own people in such numbers is unfathomable, but the surprising thing is, no-one complains!

The same is true in Pakistan, a country that seems incapable of making up its mind which side its on. The Pakistan military made a half-hearted attempt to oust the Taliban and al Quada from its border areas, then tried to make peace with them, but now there are regular indiscriminate bombing in the cities where innocent civilians are blown to pieces.

More Taliban Victims

Despite all the Muslim casualties from all over the world, I have never heard a word of condemnation for this mindless, indiscriminate killing by Muslim radical groups, and that puzzles me. All moderate Muslim groups, religious figures and Heads of State remain silent and the killing goes on unchecked.

I hope that somewhere out there a Muslim is reading this and can perhaps clarify this strange situation for me, because I have to admit, it leaves me baffled ,and I know I am not the only one for much of western civilization is asking the same question.
