This is both scary & incredibly STUPID! Islamic Sharia Law mixes with non-Islamic people & non-Islamic values in much the same way that the Ku Kux Klan mixes with non-whites.

Muslim Who Raped 13 Year Old UK Girl Spared Jail Because “He Didn’t Know It Was Wrong

Other things that Muslims don’t know are wrong. Raping women. Blowing up buses. Persecuting minority groups. Genocide.

Islamic law in action means that there is a two tier justice system. One for natives. Another for Muslim colonists who get to live under their own law in which raping 13 year old girls is okay.

A muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.

Well that makes it okay. He only raped her because he thought women were worthless.

Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law.

Well he didn’t know it was wrong. That means it’s not a crime. But good luck for anyone who leaves a pig’s head in front of a mosque and claims not to know it was wrong.

Two tiers. One for Muslims. Another for natives.

Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’

Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence. But the judge said that because Rashid was ‘passive’ and ‘lacking assertiveness’, sending him to jail might cause him ‘more damage than good’.

He seemed assertive enough when he raped a 13 year old girl. I don’t think he did that passively, despite his claims otherwise. And 4 to 7 years in prison might work wonders to educate him about rape.

Rashid, from Birmingham, admitted he had sex with the girl, saying he had been ‘tempted by her’ after they met online.

Like all good Muslims, it’s always the fault of the little girl.

In other interviews with psychologists, Rashid claimed he had been taught in his school that ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground’.

This is also apparently the view of the UK legal system when Muslims are involved.

When Judge Stokes said Rashid ‘must have known it was illegal, unless he was going round with his eyes shut’, defence lawyer Laban Leake said reports suggested Rashid had a ‘degree of sexual naivety’.

It is not too far to say that he may not have known that having sex with a 13-year-old girl was illegal.’ Judge Stokes sentenced Rashid to nine months youth custody, suspended for two years, along with a two-year probation supervision order.

It was made clear to you at the school you attended that having sexual relations with a woman before marriage was contrary to the precepts of Islam,’ he said.

So Rashid, instead of being punished for rape under British law, is being handed a suspended sentence for premarital sex under Stokes’ convoluted notion of Islamic law.

It seems that one of the more urgent laws needed now is a law barring Islam, Islamic law, cultural background or anything of that sort from being introduced as exculpatory in rape cases.


No word of the British "moderate Muslim" community expressing any outrage over this. But why should they? After all, theirs is an extremely PRIMITIVE religion!

I'm sure Sylvester will treat this tragedy as a big joke and make his usual snide and off topic remarks.

Lezfriend wrote: "Speaking of the UK, what a brutal, barbaric, and monstrous attack by these maniacal jihadists"

And giving these radical Islamic extremists sanctuary here in the west is a HUGE MISTAKE, Lezfriend! And yet, for some strange reason, liberals throughout the western world seem to believe that once they've experienced our socialist, entitlement culture, they'll fall in love with us...

Coulter: Send us your violent bigots, yearning to butcher our citizens

It’s been a bad few weeks for cultural assimilation. Last month, two welfare-receiving immigrants in the United States, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, set off bombs at the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring hundreds. By the end of the week, they had murdered a cop and engaged in a wild shoot-out and bomb-throwing melee with the police.

Last week, a couple of ethnic Nigerians butchered a British soldier with meat cleavers in broad daylight on a bustling street in a London suburb, then boasted about the murder in video interviews with bystanders. (On the bright side, they did not claim to be princes and ask for your life savings.)

Also last week, immigrants, mostly Muslims, began rioting in peaceful Sweden — burning schools to the ground, torching cars and throwing rocks at the police. (Who among us hasn’t lost his temper trying to assemble an Ikea china cabinet?)

Supporters of the West’s current immigration policies can’t keep ducking reality. So they try to shut down debate by calling their opponents racists, xenophobes, know-nothings and fascists.

The English Defense League (EDL), for example, is portrayed in the media as a bunch of racist football hooligans. So I was surprised to learn that the EDL has not only a Jewish division, but a gay division. (Harvey Fierstein could be their president!) They expressly support Israel against Muslim terror and burn Nazi flags at their rallies.

Apparently it is considered “fascist” to oppose actual fascists immigrating to your country.

A few years ago, an opinion piece in The New York Times denounced the pro-gay positions of anti-immigration groups such as the EDL for “co-opting” gays. The co-opting is so thoroughgoing that the anti-immigration Dutch politician Pim Fortuyn was himself gay. He was assassinated by a vegan animal rights activist upset at criticism of Muslims.

But surely members of the EDL oppose Britain’s immigration policies out of ignorance?

It briefly seemed so. A month ago, the head of the EDL, Tommy Robinson, provoked a round of liberal sneering when he tweeted: “welcome to twitter homepage has a picture of a mosque. what a joke.” Various media outlets leapt to point out that the photo was, actually, the Taj Mahal.

The liberal Guardian mocked: “It’s worth pointing out that the ‘mosque’ that started this … was in fact the Taj Mahal, the marble mausoleum in India. It’s almost as if the very existence of the EDL is based on false information, suspicion and idiocy.”

Except — oops –– it wasn’t the Taj Mahal. It was a mosque — the Grand Mosque in Muscat, Oman, to be precise — as The Guardian quietly admitted in an altered photo caption after stealthily removing the comment about the EDL’s “idiocy” for imagining it was a mosque. It’s almost as if the very existence of The Guardian is based on false information, suspicion and idiocy.

Britain, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and Spain have recently enacted, or are considering enacting, further restrictions on immigration, alarming immigration enthusiasts. The New York Times reported this week that the “right-wing Swiss People’s Party” is requesting a referendum on immigration.

Wait a second! A referendum doesn’t sound fascist at all. In fact and to the contrary, it’s always the advocates of unrestricted immigration who try to avoid letting the people vote. Marco Rubio and the rest of the pro-amnesty “Gang of Eight” don’t even want the country to know they’re about to vote on a mass immigration scheme.

Liberals say, “Basic human rights are not subject to a vote!” — and then define “basic human rights” as “the right of people who don’t live in your country to move there.”

Manifestly, opponents of open immigration are not fascists, anti-Semitic, anti-gay, intolerant or idiots. But as long as we’re on the subject, may we inquire into the tolerance and other Western values of the potential immigrants themselves?

Last week, U.S. law enforcement officials reported that Muslim immigrant Ibragim Todashev admitted that he and Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev had murdered three Jewish men in a Boston suburb on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attack. (Which also, I believe, was the work of immigrants.) The victims’ throats were cut from ear to ear, nearly decapitating them. One was Tamerlan’s best friend.

Searching The New York Times’ webpage for “English Defense League,” turns up this multicultural story out of Saudi Arabia: “Online Campaign Draws Attention to Case of Saudi Father Accused of Rape and Torture.” The father, Fayhan al-Ghamdi, a prominent Islamic cleric, served only a few months in a Saudi Arabian prison for allegedly raping, burning and fatally beating his own 5-year-old daughter.

It’s not just Muslims who aren’t warming to Western values. Polls by the Anti-Defamation League going back decades have shown a steady decline of anti-Semitism in the U.S. But a 2002 poll showed a surprising upsurge.

While 17 percent of all Americans were said to hold “strongly anti-Semitic” views, 35 percent of Hispanics did — as did 44 percent of foreign-born Hispanics.

(Note to Sheldon Adelson: It may be time to give your Hispanic employees a raise.)

Liberals get a kick out of accusing their opponents of what they themselves are guilty of. But this may be the most audacious reverse-guilt play yet. For objecting to the importation of primitive, violent, child-rape-forgiving bigots, the opponents of mass immigration are accused of bigotry.


So long as radical Islamic terrorists are perceived to vote Democrat, they'll probably continue to be welcomed here.

That's right, Lezfriend! We don't DARE offend the Islamic world with pretty young women shown prancing around in teeny-tiny bikinis! Sharia Law couldn't possibly approve of such decadence!

Gutless liberals from around the world (including our very own A.C.L.U.) are too afraid to challenge Muslim sensibilities. Those frightened, politically-progressive pricks FEAR Islam! Even far-left ATHEISTS, the very same people who regularly bust their collective butts to destroy every vestige of western Christianity from the public forum, will cower in fear if the Muslim community demands this or that regarding their very primitive & oppressive religion.

As for any young Muslim women taking part in a western-style beauty contest, think again...

Stoned to death after taking taking part in beauty contest

A teenage Muslim girl was stoned to death under 'Sharia law' after taking part in a beauty contest in Ukraine. Katya Koren, 19, was found dead in a village in the Crimea region near her home. Friends said she liked wearing fashionable clothes and had come seventh in a beauty contest. Her battered body was buried in a forest and was found a week after she disappeared. Katya Koren, 19, lived in the Crimea region of the Ukraine.

Police have opened a murder probe and are investigating claims that three Muslim youths killed her claiming her death was justified under Islam.

One of the three - named as 16-year-old Bihal Gaziev - is under arrest and told police she had 'violated the laws of Sharia'.

Gaziev said he had no regrets about her death because she had violated the laws of Islam.


I have a photo of this very pretty young Muslim girl (Katya Koren) to go with this story, but have sadly been unable to post any pics here on this LLV site these past two months!

   Your tax dollars at work. And not a moment too soon, too soon.

Seven killed in suspected U.S. drone strike in Pakistan

AP - Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, left, administers the oath to newly elected Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in Islamabad on June 5.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan —' A suspected U.S. drone strike killed seven people Friday night in northwest Pakistan, two days after the country’s new prime minister vowed to stop such attacks.

Pakistani intelligence officials said the attack occurred shortly after sunset in a forested tribal area that straddles North and South Waziristan, not far from the border with Afghanistan. Four people were seriously hurt, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. "

 

I guess POTUS didn't get the memo from Pakistan.

Yes, Sylvester, it would seem that President Obama has adopted the Bush doctrine to aggressively attack Islamic militants overseas. In fact, almost EVERYTHING that Senator Barack Obama HATED about Bush's foreign policy initiatives have since been EMBRACED by President Obama! The far lefties that got him the nomination in '08 over Hillary Clinton have got to HATE that!

Even GITMO remains open & operational despite candidate Obama's condemnation & many promises to close it!

But now that we've learned that our president and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder have been listening to the cell-phone conversations of average, ordinary, everyday Americans, I can't help but wonder why they WEREN'T listening in when the Tsarnaev brothers planned & then carried out the horrific Boston Marathon bombings!

Instead, I guess this White House was too busy wire-tapping members of those Tea Party fund-raising groups that were opposing his re-election!

Isn't it funny how Obama's people in the Internal Revenue Service insist that they didn't do anything wrong, but then REFUSE to discuss what happened with members of the U.S. House of Representatives trying to investigate it, taking the FIFTH AMENDMENT to "avoid incriminating themselves?"

I, for one, would like to know WHO in the Obama White House ordered the IRS to block Tea Party fund-raising groups from getting tax-exempt status! Wouldn't you?

Check out these two stories. First, elderly comedian Bill Cosby actually believes that we Americans need to be more like Muslims!

Bill Cosby: ‘We [Americans] should be more like Muslims’ Are you Kidding Me?

Over the weekend, Bill Cosby wrote an opinion piece that Americans need to be more like Muslims. At first, many thought it was a joke including Rep. Allen West.

Washington Times reports: Former Floridian Rep. Allen West had a blunt response to comedian Bill Cosby’s published weekend opinion piece, speaking of the attributes of Muslims and encouraging Americans to emulate them: Have you lost your mind?

Bill Cosby said we should [be] more like Muslims,” Mr. West wrote, on his Twitter account. “[You] mean honor killings, beheadings, suicide bombings? Hope [you’re] kidding sir.

Mr. West was responding to an opinion piece published in The New York Post written by Mr. Cosby.

Mr. Cosby wrote, The Blaze reported: “I’m a Christian, But Muslims are misunderstood. Intentionally misunderstood. We should all be more like them. They make sense, especially with their children. There is no other group like the Black Muslims, who put so much effort into teaching children the right things: They don’t smoke, they don’t drink or overindulge in alcohol, they protect their women, they command respect. And what do these other people do?”

He continued: “They complain about them, they criticize them. We’d be a better world if we emulated them. We don’t have to become black Muslims, but we can embrace the things that work.


It's obvious to me that Bill Cosby has never actually LIVED in an Islamic nation, where even so-called "moderate" Muslims are too frightened to speak out against those violent Muslims promoting Sharia Law, which allows even for the beheading of small children who have violated perceived Islamic precepts:

Taliban Beheads 10-Year-Old Boy

The Taliban beheaded two boys, one 10-year-old and one 16-year-old, after the Taliban charged them with spying. The boys were rummaging among rubbish bins near police headquarters in Kandahar, Afghanistan’s second city, a vital base for Western forces. Grabbed by the Taliban, they were accused of trading the food for information. After they were interrogated by the Taliban, their heads were cut off. The bodies were found in Kandahar’s Zhari district.

Western officials said the boys were trying to find food that Western forces had thrown out. They said the ten-year-old was extremely poor and was known to rummage for food to feed his family. It is believed that the executions were a warning to other children not to co-operate with the Coalition forces, but reaction was swift from the public; thousands of people vented their outrage on Twitter.

Jamal Agha, the chief of Zhari district, said: “The boys were on their way back when they were stopped by Taliban insurgents who beheaded them. Both of them were innocent children and had nothing to do with government or foreigners.”

Dr Toryalay Wessa, Kandahar’s governor, ordered security forces and police to find the Taliban responsible for the killing “with whatever casualties it takes and at whatever price.”

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmad denied the allegations. He said there were no beheadings. But last July, in the same area as the newest beheadings, a 16-year-old boy who was also accused by the Taliban of spying was beheaded and skinned. In August, a seven-year-old girl and 12-year-old boy were kidnapped and beheaded.


The Taliban spokesman then thanked Bill Cosby for his kind comments regarding Islam.

Lezfriend wrote: "This is pretty shocking stuff by any objective, sane analysis, Anon. Are the beheadings, bombings, beatings, and implementation of Sharia Law all things to be proud of that we should emulate?"

The weird thing, Lezfriend, is that the people who should be the most FRIGHTENED of the growth of Islam throughout our modern world are LIBERALS, particularly liberals who support things like gay marriage and women's rights. But they're NOT! Go figure...

Why Liberals Love Islam

It’s always seemed bizarre to me that liberals love to champion Islam. Doesn’t Islam represent everything liberals love to hate? Islam assigns women subservient social roles. It condemns homosexuality and other "sexually deviant" practices. At least in recent years, it has given rise to numerous violent extremist movements, and, even more alarming, a non-trivial percentage of Muslims seem to be supportive of them. Nothing remotely comparable has been seen from Christians or Jews in the modern era.

So it seems like liberals should despise Islam with a white-hot hatred, but instead they love to defend it, to label it the “religion of peace”, and to champion the rights of Muslims to religious freedom (even while they remain indifferent to the other two Abrahamic faiths in their struggles for similar freedoms). I’ve often wondered about this, but yesterday I had an “insight” into the question. I use scare quotes here because I’m not certain whether my theory is actually true. But here is my thought: liberals love Islam because it represents their idea of what religion is supposed to be.

In saying this, I am drawing mainly on my experiences living in the Muslim world (mainly in Palestine and in Uzbekistan), and on the numerous conversations that I had with serious Muslims there about how they understand their religion. I am not an Islamic scholar, so I won’t attempt to quibble with those who want to claim (as some do) that the religiosity of actual Muslims today is a far departure from what Islam was intended to be. This could be true. I wouldn’t know. And I recognize that there are limitations to what one can learn from the rank-and-file faithful of any religion. A person who simply talked to 50 lukewarm, liberal Catholics about their faith might get some very funny ideas.

Still, the people I have in mind did not regard themselves as lukewarm. And, in my experience, living Muslims take a markedly fideist approach to their faith, meaning that they don’t expect that rational evaluation should yield greater insight into its teachings. The Koran should be followed because it is God’s word; to expect more understanding than that is folly and even possibly a sacrilege. Islamic resistance to textual analysis of the Koran is legendary by now. And it's also true that Islam has many, many concrete rules; unlike Christianity, it has little flexibility for adapting to different political systems. Muslims, in my experience, are far more concerned about external action than they are about internal spiritual states. Christian and Jewish attention to virtue seems strange to them.

One Muslim friend actually told me that she found the Christian focus on thought and feeling to be alarming. “I don’t want God looking into my head and heart all the time,” she said. “If I do what I’m instructed to do, that should be enough. My thoughts should be my own.” She was horrified by my admission that evil thoughts might be the sort of thing a Catholic would feel moved to report to her priest in the confessional. I thought that was interestingly revealing of differences between the religiosity of Christians and that of Muslims.

Corresponding to this, Muslims expect to be rewarded or punished for their religious practice in fairly external and obvious ways. Carrots and sticks are very central to the Islamic understanding of obedience and submission to God. So, for example, the pleasures of Islamic heaven seem to be straightforwardly sensual. My Muslim friends were tickled when I told them about the Beatific Vision. “You just get to look at God?” They wanted something a little more tangible, like a harem of virgins.

Islam doesn’t offer many resources for finding redemptive value in poverty or suffering. I actually think that the rage of the present Muslim world is partly related to this defect in Islamic spirituality. Their faith gives them no constructive paradigm through which to view their own material and political struggles. It makes no sense to them that the West should prosper while they, the practitioners of the true faith, languish under poor and corrupt regimes. Some very normal-seeming (which is to say, not visibly crazed or violent) Muslims offered this to me as a rationale for violent jihad. “How could God not enable the true faith to prosper? If only we had the will to fight, God would necessarily hand us the victory.”

This is the picture of Islam that I developed through my years in the Islamic world. Fideist, rule-oriented, and focused on the material advantages that God has promised to those who obey without question. Now, doesn’t this sound like the liberal vision of what religion should be?

Of course, that still doesn’t explain, per se, why liberals love Islam instead of just despising it from top to bottom. I wonder, though, whether the story is something like this: liberals like to think of themselves as the enlightened teachers and leaders of benighted, backwards religious people who cling to their gods and guns as a lifeline in an insufficiently-liberalized world. Christians and Jews keep defying them by proving themselves to be far more rational than the liberal narrative would suggest, and by showing that their religiosity is, contrary to expectation, generous, fruitful and humane. This is maddening, and makes it difficult to bring Christianity and Judaism to heel. But Islam seems to fit the paradigm much better, and, conveniently, there aren’t enough Muslims around (at least in the United States) to burst the liberal bubble when they imagine themselves condescendingly plucking their benighted Muslim brethren out of the muck of their broken undemocratic regimes and their backwards faith.

Is it plausible, or no?


Liberals hate ALL religions, but it would seem that, because they're FRIGHTENED of Islam, they RESPECT it!

Short of Money, Egypt Sees Crisis on Fuel and Food

Tara Todras-Whitehill for The New York Times

QALYUBEYA, Egypt — A fuel shortage has helped send food prices soaring. Electricity is blacking out even before the summer. And gas-line gunfights have killed at least five people and wounded dozens over the past two weeks.

World Twitter Logo.
Tara Todras-Whitehill for The New York Times

A farmer in his field outside Cairo. Farmers already lack fuel for the pumps that irrigate their fields, and they say they fear they will not have enough for the tractors.

Tara Todras-Whitehill for The New York Times

On the outskirts of Cairo, men worked to make fixes to an irrigation pump on a farm.

" The root of the crisis, economists say, is that Egypt is running out of the hard currency it needs for fuel imports. The shortage is raising questions about Egypt’s ability to keep importing wheat that is essential to subsidized bread supplies, stirring fears of an economic catastrophe at a time when the government is already struggling to quell violent protests by its political rivals.

Farmers already lack fuel for the pumps that irrigate their fields, and they say they fear they will not have enough for the tractors to reap their wheat next month before it rots in the fields.

United States officials warn of disaster unless Egypt soon carries out a package of tax increases and subsidy cuts tied to a $4.8 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund. That would persuade other lenders that Egypt was creditworthy enough to obtain billions more in additional loans needed to meet its yawning deficit. But fearful of a public reaction at a time when the streets are already near boiling, the government of President Mohamed Morsi has so far resisted an I.M.F. deal, insisting that Egypt can wait.

Those who say Egypt cannot afford enough fuel are “trying to make problems for Dr. Morsi and his party,” said Naser el-Farash, the spokesman for the Ministry of Supply and Internal Trade and a fellow member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm.

Mr. Farash placed blame for the shortage of fuel on corruption left over from the government of Hosni Mubarak, combined with hoarding inspired by fear-mongering in the private news media. “They are against the revolution,” he said.

Independent analysts say that the growing shortage of fuel and the fear about wheat imports now pose the gravest threats to Egypt’s fragile stability. “It has the potential to make things very, very bad,” said Yasser el-Shimy, an analyst for the International Crisis Group.

Egypt has held two years of unsuccessful talks with the I.M.F., and the current government is still balking at the politically painful package of overhauls — even as rising prices and unemployment make those measures more difficult with each passing day.

“They are operating on the notion that Egypt is too big to be allowed to fail, that the U.S. and the West will step in,” Mr. Shimy said. “They think Egypt has a right to get the loan, and I think they will probably keep pushing all the way.”

Officials of the Morsi government have indicated that they prefer to wait until the election of a new Parliament, which might demonstrate broader public agreement on the need for changes. But a court decision striking down the election law has postponed the vote until at least the fall, and many economists say Egypt cannot endure the delay.

“The situation is pretty urgent, because the deterioration accelerates,” a Western diplomat said, speaking on the condition of anonymity under diplomatic protocols. Shortages, the diplomat said, are already leading to layoffs.

Energy subsidies make up as much as 30 percent of Egypt’s government spending, said Ragui Assaad, of the Economic Research Forum here. The country imports much of its fuel, and for the first time last year it was forced to import some of the natural gas used to generate electricity — the reason for the recent blackouts. Egypt also imports about 75 percent of its wheat, mixing the superior foreign wheat with lower-quality domestic supplies to improve its subsidized bread.

But the two years of mayhem in the streets since the ouster of Mr. Mubarak have decimated tourism and foreign investment, crippling the economy. The government’s reserve of hard currency has fallen to about $13 billion from $36 billion two years ago. "

I am curious about what people think should be done about the kidnapped girls in Nigeria.

Islamic radicals have a long tradition of kidnapping young non-Muslim children and selling them off to sex traffickers (Nigeria had a case a year ago where about 100 young Christian boys were taken, abused for several months, and then massacred by the same group who took the girls). Moldava claimed that 25,000 girls were taken from that country in 2013. I have read stories that estimated the total number of children sold into slavery is around 800,000 per year.

The lack of any visible response from Muslim countries to the Nigerian situation says a lot, I think.

The lack of action by the Nigerians, the silence from Muslim leaders, and the lack of attention to the problem in the West is revolting.
