More dhimmitude in France

From France-Echos: le blog in English:

Jean-Marc ROUBAUD, deputy for the UMP political party, proposed to restore the crime of blasphemy. Eric RAOULT, UMP deputy and mayor of Raincy in Seine-Saint-Denis, proposed a new law to introduce cartoons to the list of “crimes and offences” against all Religions.

Of course, they have to go softly to let us think that crime of blasphemy will be positive for all religions … so theyget support from other religions.
But Eric RAOULT admited that this was demanded by the ‘Union des Associations Musulmanes’ (Union of Muslim Associations) of Seine-Saint-Denis : UAM93.

Muslims order, UMP dhimmis obey.

UAM93, encouraged by the succes of its Parisian demonstration against the Muhammad cartoons, is now leadinga national action to support those 2 dhimmis-deputy. They also plan todistribute more than 400,000 biographies of Muhammads (!!) forMuhammand’s day of birth, the coming April 10th.

By the way, there is going to be a counter-demonstration to the March for Free Speech. And Qaradawi, about the boycott to Denmark:

“It is the right of Muslims to boycott those who are harming them and their Prophet. There should be great pressure at the United Nations to issue strong rules that would criminalise the defamation of religions.”

I do not agree frankly. Religion influences people and can have an enormous impact on them. So as any other institution, they should be critisized, or we are heading back to the Paleolithic again. By the way, I think there are other things that "can harm more the Profet" than some cartoons.

And a humourous note: you can read the Sandmonkey's post titled: Qaradawi on marrying Christian and Jewish women. Really, it's really funny…

Palestine: two youths charged for being hired by Al-Qaida

 

From ACAGE.ORG:

Two youths in their 20s from Nablus were charged by a military court on counts of being hired by the Jordanian branch of al-Qaida to perform terrorist acts in Israel. Their trial was to begin next month.

The two, Azzam abu el Adas and Bilal Hasnawi were arrested three months ago at the Allenby Bridge connecting between Jordan and the West Bank near Jericho, Israel Radio reported.

The planned terrorist attack, according to the indictment, was to take place at the French Hill in northern Jerusalem, and was to include both a car bomb and a suicide bomber.

The car bomb was planned to explode in a road just outside a local restaurant. Once the explosion occurred, the other terrorist was expected to blow himself up inside the same restaurant.

Amnesty for Argelian Islamist terrorists

Argelia bans the practice of other religions except Islam-except in controlled places- BUT amnesties Islamists terrorists.

Well, I thought that the conversion to other religions was dangerous for the one who converted, but not for society.

NOTE: the freedom of religion is very restricted in Algeria both for people of another religion -they can only practise it in controlled places- and for Muslims who after convert to another religion, as conversions are banned. So in this last case, their practise of reigion is totally banned.

“Mes Freres Assassins”

From CNN:

PARIS, France (CNN) — It began with a chance encounter last October, outside a courtroom at the Palais de Justice in Paris. Now, Mohamed Sifaoui is under 24-hour protection, getting death threats daily.

Sifaoui, an Algerian-born journalist living in France, was covering the trial of Islamic militants accused of carrying out a bombing campaign in France in 1995.

Also watching the trial was a heavy-set man named Karim Bourti, convicted in 1998 of terrorist association, who has served his sentence.

"Karim recognized me and realized we had gone to high school together in Algeria," said Sifaoui.

That chance meeting led to a three-month journey. In the company of Bourti, Sifaoui — using an assumed name — penetrated the ranks of Islamic extremists in France and Britain — some linked to al Qaeda.

"Every day there was tension. I worked under terrible pressure. I was afraid that at any moment, I might come face to face with someone who knew me, who knew my real name," said Sifaoui.

Bourti and his friends knew Sifaoui was a journalist, even knew he was working on a documentary for the television channel France 2, but they became convinced he was a believer just like them.

"I constructed a new identity. It wasn’t me, I’m anti-fascist and anti-extremist, but it was someone who was sympathetic to them," said Sifaoui.

Sometimes Sifaoui would openly tape interviews with them, other times he used a hidden camera. All the time he was compiling material not only for the documentary, but also for a book.

Sifaoui stayed with his new friends, in the immigrant neighborhoods that ring Paris, watching as they raised money on the streets. He prayed with them at mosques and listened to their political and religious arguments.

Sifaoui said he learned they were recruiting young men to go off to fight jihad, holy war, in Chechnya.

"When there is war, they incite, they encourage young people who don’t have a great deal of knowledge, indoctrinate them, incite them, to send them off to battlefronts," he said.

Gilles Leclair, who co-ordinates anti-terrorist actions for the French Interior Ministry, said that what Sifaoui describes matches the findings of police investigations. He called Sifaoui’s book and television work "good reportage."

"They (the militants) try to get these people to become terrorists, or stronger than normal believers. They are recruiting in jails and in mosques," Leclair said.

Sifaoui said he found more evidence connecting Bourti, and the people around him, to what judicial officials say were chemical weapons plots thwarted by arrests in the suburbs of Paris.

"I knew that he knew the people who had been arrested. I became certain that he and his group were not simply people whose role it was to incite … these people were actively involved in acts of terror," Sifaoui said.

He has more undercover footage that he said backs this up, and that will be part of another documentary that airs on the French channel M6 in coming weeks.

Bourti is now under arrest, suspected by French police of involvement in the beating of a Muslim cleric, and of involvement in a terrorist organization.

Sifaoui’s book,(My Brothers the Assassins), published in France, details what he learned in the months he spent getting close to Bourti. Sifaoui said it is being translated into English and will soon be published in the United States.

As a result of the book and the documentary, Sifaoui is getting death threats. Just within the past week, he said, he agreed to police protection.

He must soon decide whether to testify against Bourti and others. He has not forgotten, he said, that the men who called him "brother" were prepared to kill at any price.

Algeria bans Muslims to learn about Christianity

Noisy Room.Net has the news.

The reason of this, though is that the region in which the conversions are blooming is Cabilia, a region with a strong sentiment of their own past before the Islamization , as I wrote in Eurabian News:

En los foros en Internet frecuentados por jóvenes de Cabilia, la nueva ley ha suscitado reacciones muy negativas. “La República islamista muestra su verdadera faz”, afirman los participantes en uno de ellos aludiendo al régimen argelino. “Los islamistas en libertad, los cristianos al trullo”, señalan otros refiriéndose a la reciente excarcelación de integristas indultados por el régimen.
Las conversiones al cristianismo han sido más numerosas en Cabilia porque es una región bereber rebelde que quiere marcar diferencias con el resto del país. Varias asociaciones de la sociedad civil reivindican incluso la reinstauración de los valores que imperaban en el siglo VIII, antes de que fuesen islamizados. Algunos lugares de la costa norteafricana habían sido entonces evangelizados.

It is a bereber rebel region where several associations were demanding the reinstauration of the values that were held in the 8th century BEFORE they were Islamicized. El Pais, left-wing newspapers, says afterwards: “some places from the North African Coast were evangelized” then”. Any one who has seen a map of the Roman Empire knows that from Egypt to Tunisia, it was Roman, so it was more than “some places”. More than half of it in fact…

Mark Steyn: “We may lose this fight easier than I thought”

"We may have to change the name of this column to ‘Unhappy Warrior’, or ‘Reluctant Conscript’, or ‘Impending Deserter’. The last few weeks have made me consider not the possibility that we might lose this thing (which I’ve always weighed) but that we might lose it more easily than even the gloomiest of us thought.

[…] By contrast, Europe is getting there from here in the one-way express lane, and it’s not going to like where it ends up. About six months after 9/11, I went on a grand tour of the Continent’s Muslim ghettoes, and then flew on to the Middle East. The Muslims I met in Europe were, almost to a man, more alienated and angrier than the ones back in Araby. Don’t take my word for it. It was a Hamburg cell that pulled off 9/11, a British subject who was the shoebomber, a Montreal welfare recipient who tried to blow up LAX, a London School of Economics graduate who had Daniel Pearl executed… At one level, that’s just plain operational sense: al-Qa’eda obviously has no shortage of crazy Waziristani goatherds it can recruit but they tend to stand out at the check-in counter at United. A western-educated engineering graduate doesn’t.

But that in itself doesn’t explain why quite so many European Muslims are hot for jihad. In the Muslim ghettoes of the Continent east meets west in a particularly malign form that fuses the worst aspects of both. You can see it in the tattoed pierced Pakistani skinhead gangs swaggering through the streets of northern England: into rap and drugs and all the rest, they’re observant Muslims mainly in their attitude to women and infidels. The college-educated jihadi who could be pulling down six-figure salaries instead of Manhattan skyscrapers are in some senses merely the middle-class variation on this phenomenon.

[…] "Whatever the virtues of multiculturalism, bicultural societies are the most unstable in the world, whether relatively benignly so (Fiji) or genocidally (Rwanda). The problem Europe faces is that Bosnia’s demographic profile is now the model for the entire continent. All those Bush Doctrine naysayers who argue that Iraq is an artificial entity that can never be a functioning state ought to take a look at the Netherlands. You think Kurds and Arabs, Sunni and Shia are incompatible? What do you call a jurisdiction split between post-Christian secular gay potheads and anti-whoring anti-sodomites Islamists? If Kurdistan’s an awkward fit in Iraq, how well does Pornostan fit in the Islamic Republic of Holland? Europe’s problems don’t nullify the Bush Doctrine so much as present a more urgent case for it. Indeed, given that the Palestinian Authority is funding-wise the largest EU welfare slum, even the Hamas victory can be seen as more typical of Euro-Muslim alienation than Arab psychoses."

Two stories

The first from HotZone: Child Bride. HT: NoisyRoom.Net. (I do not know what happens I cannot connect with this page now)

Married at the age of four, an Afghan girl was subjected to years of beatings and torture, finally escaping to discover that within all the world’s cruelty, there is also some kindness.

KABUL, Afghanistan – Eleven-year old Gulsoma lay in a heap on the ground in front of her father-in-law. He told her that if she didn’t find a missing watch by the next morning he would kill her. He almost had already.

Enraged about the missing watch, Gulsoma’s father-in-law had beaten her repeatedly with a stick. She was bleeding from wounds all over her body and her right arm and right foot had been broken.

She knew at that moment that if she didn’t get away, he would make good on his promise to kill her.

[…]”They beat me with electric wires,” she says, “mostly on the legs. My father-in-law told his other children to do it that way so the injuries would be hidden. He said to them, ‘break her bones, but don’t hit her on the face.'”

There were even times when the family’s abuse of Gulsoma transcended the bounds of the most wanton, sadistic cruelty, as on the occasions when they used her as a human tabletop, forcing her to lie on her stomach then cutting their food on her bare back.

[…] One evening, Gulsoma says, when her father-in-law saw the neighbor giving her food and a blanket, he took them away and beat her mercilessly. Then, she says, he locked her in a shed for two months. “I would be kept there all day,” she says, “then at night they would let me go the bathroom and I would be fed one time each day. Most of the time it was only bread and sometimes some beans.”

She says every day she was locked in the shed, she wished and prayed that her parents would come and take her away. Then she would remember that her father was dead and her mother was gone.

But Gulsoma had an inner strength even her father-in-law couldn’t comprehend. “When he came to the shed he kept asking me, ‘Why don’t you die? I imprisoned you, I give you less food, but still you don’t die.'”

She says she believes there are other girls like her in Kandahar, maybe elsewhere in Afghanistan, and that she wants to study human rights and one day go back to help them. (READ ALL)

And the second from students in Pakistan (from Christian Science Monitor)

Like many students at Punjab University, Mohammed Abid Faran worries about living costs almost as much as his studies. To save rupees, he counts on an Islamist student organization, Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT), which keeps prices at the university hostel artificially low. “Here a cup of tea costs three rupees,” Mr. Faran, an engineering student, says. “Outside it costs six.”

But Faran worries that IJT dictates not only the price of tea but the proper comportment of Muslim students in this cosmopolitan city as well. “We are studying, and they are saying we should protest, without regard if we are busy and want to go or not,” he says, referring to a recent demonstration on campus over the controversial cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. “Why should they put pressure on us?”
