Yemen: 13 Year-old Child Bride Dies After Intercourse

On March 22nd, I posted an article entitled “Yemen: Women Take a Stand for Child Marriages”. I wonder if they are happy now?

Marrying a girl even younger than this is legal under Islam.

Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88:
Narrated ‘Ursa:

The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).

Islam should of been left in the 6th century, it belongs.

Yemeni child bride, 13, dies of sex injuries
Death comes amid ongoing debate on whether to set a minimum age for brides in Yemen, where human rights groups say one in every three girls is married before the age of 18

A 13-year-old Yemeni girl died three days after marrying a man twice her age, due to internal bleeding following intercourse, a Yemeni human rights group and UNICEF said.

The girl’s death comes amid ongoing debate on whether to set a minimum age for brides in Yemen, where human rights groups say one in every three girls is married before the age of 18.

Elham Mahdi Shoi died in the west of the Arab state earlier this month, said Sisters Arab Forum (SAF).

Sigrid Kaag, regional director for UNICEF, said in a statement that the United Nations child agency was “dismayed by the death of yet another child bride in Yemen“.

“Elham is a martyr of abuse of children’s lives in Yemen and a clear example of what is justified by the lack of limits on the age of marriage,” SAF said in a statement.

The case of a nine-year-old Yemeni child bride, Nujood Ali, was thrust into the spotlight after it was reported by a Yemeni newspaper and a French journalist wrote her memoir, which was published in March.

In the harrowing memoir, Nujood tells how at age 9 she was forced to marry a man three times her age, raped and beaten, then made Yemeni history by getting a divorce two years ago.

As suggested in the memoir, child brides in Yemen are fuelled by a combination of a lack of women’s rights, economic hardships and a culture that deplores bringing families shame, making it difficult to speak out.

K. Holmes/ Pacino Movie set Bows to Islam

Muslims say jump, and as usual non-Muslims ask how high? If this constant catering to Islam does not stop, eventually the non-Muslims of this country will end up being subservient to Islam. Which is just what Islam calls for.

009.029
YUSUFALI: Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

One of things going against us, is that most people are uninformed on Islam. If they were informed, they might not be so quick to cater to Islam. So I ask everybody to continue to do your part, and help educate America to this grave threat.

Thank you.

Katie Holmes’ film prop angers Muslims in Queens

New York, Apr 12: Katie Holmes’s new film ‘Son of No One’ enraged Muslims in Queens when a prop mentioning the Koran was posted in public view.

In the film, the actress is working with Al Pacino.

According to reports, congregants of a mosque in Astoria complained about the sign referring to the central text of Islam.

“Pacino, Ray Liotta and Channing Tatum were all on set. There was a small protest from people from the mosque across the street about the sign, but the crew were respectful and agreed to take it down,” the New York Post quoted a spy as saying.

The movie is about a young cop assigned to a precinct in the neighbourhood where he grew up.

Obama to Roll out red Carpet for 500 Muslims

Ever since Obama took office, the pattern of our government catering to Islam has been crystal clear. Recent examples of this are Obama overturning the Bush ban on Tariq Ramadan, ending the use of terms like “radical Islam” in security documents, and the pathetic Islamophile speech by John Brennan, Assistant to the President For Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, given at NYU. Our government has now taken it one step further, and there is no end is sight.

Obama walks the talk in new Muslim outreach
Post-Cairo speech » U.S. purging inflammatory language and sending Nobel winners to teach seminars.

By Omar Sacirbey
Religion News Service

Nearly a year after President Barack Obama’s historic speech in Cairo announcing that America wanted a “new beginning” with the Muslim world, evidence of that policy shift has, in recent weeks, become hard to ignore.

The Obama administration is revising national security guidelines that strip references to “Islamic radicalism” and other terms deemed inflammatory to Muslims.

Officials also reversed 3-month-old guidelines that singled out passengers on flights arriving from 13 Muslim countries, and Cuba, for mandatory screening.

Controversial scholar Tariq Ramadan entered the United States for the first time in six years after being barred by the Bush administration, and the Obama administration has dispatched American Nobel Prize winners to advise Muslims scientists, economists and other professionals on how to improve their research and better manage their institutions. At month’s end, the U.S. government will play host to some 500 mainly Muslim business people for intensive seminars on entrepreneurship.

“There’s a lot going on but not a lot being told,” said Qamar ul-Huda, a senior officer at the Religion and Peacemaking Program at the United States Institute for Peace, an independent nonpartisan institute chartered by Congress. “Many Muslims are not aware of what’s happening, and that needs to be addressed.”

Many analysts say tangible benefits to U.S. foreign policy and security already are visible, such as increased U.S.-Pakistani cooperation that has resulted in the capture or killing of an unprecedented number of high-level Taliban leaders.

In June, Obama will have another chance to win over Muslims when he visits Indonesia, the Southeast Asian nation where he spent part of his childhood and which boasts the world’s largest Muslim population.

Still, analysts say the long-term battle for Muslim hearts and minds is just beginning, and they caution it will take time to win over people in societies plagued by unemployment, corruption, and social malaise — much less those who are more familiar with U.S. troops in Afghanistan than business seminars in Washington.

Obama and other administration officials stopped using terms like “Islamic extremism” shortly after taking office and are purging “Islamic radicalism” from the National Security Strategy policy document.

“It’s offensive to everyday Muslims who don’t like their religion tied to extremism,” ul-Huda said. While not yet finalized, the new language will target terrorism groups rather than use general terms that connect terrorism to Islam.

While George W. Bush was criticized heavily in the Muslim world for using terms such as “Islamo-fascism,” changes started being made while he still was in office. In 2008, the National Counterterrorism Center produced a document called “Words that Work and Words that Don’t: A Guide for Counter-Terrorism Communication,” which recommends that government agencies and officials avoid characterizing al-Qaida and other terrorist groups as “Islamic” or “Muslim” because those terms could “unintentionally legitimize” their tactics.

In January, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lifted a 2004 revocation of Ramadan’s visa, which undermined U.S. credibility as a beacon of democracy, critics said. “It made it harder to sell democracy in the Muslim world,” said Asma Afsaruddin, and Islamic Studies professor at Indiana University who taught at Notre Dame when Ramadan was barred.

Many Muslims have welcomed the changes and shift in tone. Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, called the new White House vocabulary “another step toward respectful and effective outreach to Muslims at home and abroad.”

“We hope this positive change in language,” he said, “will lead to policies that will deal more effectively with important issues such as peace with justice in the Middle East and withdrawal of our nation’s forces from Iraq and Afghanistan.”

For Muslims in the Islamic world, the changes have been greeted with hope, but also skepticism, especially as Obama has increased the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan and Israeli-Palestinian peace talks remain stalled.

“Many Muslims see this as an important harbinger of things to come. The fact that Obama stops using terms like Islamic terrorist shows a big change in mind-set.

Muslims notice that, they notice that he’s not generalizing about them,” Afsaruddin said. But, she added, “Skeptics would say people are still dying in Afghanistan, and that the Palestinians are not any better off. It’s a valid criticism, but it’s too early to give up hope.”

Ramadan, a Swiss scholar who has been critical of U.S. foreign policy, has used his new freedom to tell New York Magazine in an interview that he believes Obama has shown he knows how to communicate with Muslims, but not much else.

“Obama has the vision and the words, but does he have the power? This is problematic,” Ramadan said. “It seems he is limited.”

Ul-Huda blames the media and politicians in the Muslim world for kindling anti-American sentiments. Whenever people point to progress, ul-Huda said, naysayers always bring up Afghanistan and Palestine.

“Of course there are people who say, ‘What have you done?’ They want magic, but Obama never promised magic.”

CAIR Gets “Leaving Islam” bus ads Pulled

Once again the bullies of the Cancer on American Islamic Relations, score a victory. It seems that all CAIR has to do is complain about something being anti-Islamic, and non-Muslims obey their commands, without doing any research on Islam at all. Here is a clue, Islam is a religion of war, that encourages lying, and allows rape. Islam is what is “offensive”.

Miami-Dade Transit to remove `offensive’ Islamic bus ads
BY JAWEED KALEEM

Miami-Dade Transit is pulling advertisements from 10 buses that South Florida Muslims have said are offensive to Islam.

The ads, which went up Tuesday, said “Fatwa on your head? Is your community or family threatening you?” and directed Muslims to a website encouraging them to leave Islam.

Robert Spencer, who heads New York-based Stop the Islamization of America, which purchased the ads for one-month as the first leg of a national campaign, said they were “offered in defense of religious liberty.”

But on Thursday, Miami-Dade Transit spokeswoman Karla Damian said that after reviewing the ads, the department decided they “may be offensive to Islam” and would remove them before the buses ran on Friday.

Damian said the ads were able to initially go up because Miami-Dade Transit has an outside company sell ad space and does not routinely review ads before they run.

The South Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations had critiqued the ads as promoting “bigotry” and making false statements about Islam.

“Islam guarantees freedom to and freedom from religion. . . . [We] reject as un-Islamic any extremist interpretation that sanctions the killing of any individual because she decided to `leave Islam,” said director Muhammed Malik.

Of course the CAIR con man left this part out.

Turkey: Israel Must Give up Their Nukes

Israel must denuclearize, Erdogan says
14/04/2010

The Turkish premier says the international community should take action to disarm Israel as part of the efforts to make the Middle East a nuclear weapons-free zone.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday before leaving for the nuclear security summit in Washington, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the international community has turned a blind eye to Israel’s nuclear program.

Pointing out that Israel is believed to be the sole possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East and is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Erdogan said, “Until now, we haven’t seen any request or intent from the international community with regards to Israel’s (armament). We are going to ask the international community: why haven’t you addressed this issue?”

The Turkish premier announced that he would raise the issue at the Washington summit and call on all 47 countries attending the forum to pressure Tel Aviv to relinquish its nuclear arsenal.

Erdogan said Iran’s nuclear program has come under scrutiny as a result of its membership in the International Atomic Energy Agency whereas Israel, which has not signed the NPT, is “free to do what it wants.”

Israel reportedly possesses 250 to 300 nuclear warheads.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu decided to cancel plans to attend the Washington summit after learning that Cairo and Ankara would demand that Tel Aviv sign the NPT at the meeting.
