What could go wrong?
Hamas is lobbying for a stricter enforcement of Islamic law in Gaza – including provisions to cut off the hands of thieves, and execution of individuals who cheat on their spouses. A report in the Al-Hayat dailynewspaper said that Hamas expects the new regulations to take effect in the coming months, after introduction of the legislation in the PA parliament.
Existing laws mete out the death penalty to individuals convicted of murder, spying, homosexuality, or selling land to Jews. The new legislation will expand the crimes for which individuals can be executed to include disloyalty to a spouse – having sexual relations outside the context of marriage. Other provisions of the law include chopping off the right hand of a thief (along with at least a seven year jail sentence), and lashes for a large number of “crimes,” including drinking alcoholic beverages and gambling. All the punishments are derived from sharia, Islamic law.
In addition, girls age 15 will be able to decide to marry on their own, without requiring permission from their parents. Individuals age ten and over are considered adults under the new legislation, and are subject to the full force of the law for offenses.
Isn’t this just peaceful and so worthy of respect? Let’s keep laws that allow the government to murder gay people and people who sell land to Jews. What a tolerant, freedom of religion loving group of misunderstood, victimized “Palestinians”.
But on the plus side, at least little girls, who would be too young to drive in the US, can now marry and do the dirty with the 50 year-old men who buy them from their families now.
And who hasn’t said that 10 year-old kids should receive the same punishment as an adult? I mean, it’s not like they aren’t completely mentally developed and are totally aware of the consequences of their actions. So what if he only shoplifted a Snicker’s bar from the local bazaar…off with his hand!!!
These people and the idiots who support them are animals.
Barack Obama in a speech shortly after the Benghazi attack in which he vowed to bring the terrorists “to justice”.
In unrelated news: Two years later, new reports indicate:
The Ansar al Sharia Brigade, the Islamist terror group linked to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, continues to operate freely in that Libyan city, according to U.S. military officials.
The group remains active in the Mediterranean port city, operating patrols and checkpoints, and earlier this year reached an agreement with other Islamist groups allowing it to operate openly, said military officials familiar with intelligence reports from North Africa.
So much for ‘bringing those folks to justice”. But then, that vow did come from Obama’s mouth so we should have known it was a lie from the get-go.
From Daily Beast:
The volatile country, still reeling after the Benghazi attack and several recent bombings, has become a magnet for al Qaeda terrorists determined to sow instability in the region.
“Libya has become AQIM’s headquarters,” says the intelligence source, adding that in just the last few weeks three new al Qaeda camps have opened in southern Libya.
In his usual short-sightedness, Obama was part of the circumstances that have led to a resurgence of al-Qaeda and has not only allowed, but also supported, the cause of radical Islam within the Middle East.
On March 15, 2011, Obama took the podium and announced to the world that he had authorized US Military action in Libya.
“Today I authorized the armed forces of the United States to begin a limited military action in Libya,” Obama. “That action has now begun.”
A few months later, Hillary Clinton found it to be pretty hilarious when she received word that the Libyan dictator, Muammar Qaddafi, had been beaten to death and drug through the streets.
"We came, we saw, he died," she laughed when told of news reports of Qaddafi’s death by an aide in between formal interviews.
And what was the result of their chuckle-worthy actions? The murder of four Americans in Benghazi and the establishment of terror training camps in a previously somewhat secure country and the return of al-Qaeda.
Just like the return of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, who has spawned and supports terror organization to this date, Obama has not only supported but facilitated the return of vocal enemies of America and, even now, is planning on arming known terrorists, and lay the groundwork for future terror training facilities and bases of operations in Syria.
Providing aid and comfort to our enemies is no longer treasonous under the Obama administration but is, instead, well practiced policy.
…that crucifixes are banned in Saudi Arabia unless they’re being used in crucifixions?
….Looks like Iran is bringing back that joyous, totally not barbaric, practice of stoning.
It must be wonderful to live in the 21st Century and still have a 7th Century mentality.
But remember, childrens, it’s their culture and if you whisper a peep of disapproval that makes you nothing but a filthy Islamophobe.
President Obama is preparing to send lethal weaponry to the Syrian opposition and has taken steps to assert more aggressive U.S. leadership among allies and partners seeking the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad, according to senior administration officials.
So Obama is pushing to provide weapons to the Syrian ‘rebels’….which are known to be polluted with members of al Qaeda and other Islamic radical terror groups.
I could have sworn I read somewhere something about providing aid and comfort to our enemies….now where could that have been?
You’re kidding me, right?
“[W]e’re not going to solve this challenge of terror and of extremism and of people finding an alternative if we’re not reaching out to people, talking to them, bringing them to the table and trying to work through major, perceived differences,” Secretary of State John Kerry told a gathering in Brussels on Monday.
“I believe we have to create a new paradigm, frankly, to deal with this.”
Kerry said the new paradigm includes public-private partnerships, and he pointed to new initiative that’s just getting under way with Palestinians in the West Bank, where U.S. businesses are being urged to invest in places for the sake of peace, not profit […]
Kerry noted that 60 percent of Egypt’s population is under the age of 30, 50 percent is under age 21, and 40 percent under age 18: “If they grow up without education, without opportunities, it’s pretty predictable what kind of challenges we can all face. So I think this is urgent, President Obama believes this is urgent, and that we need to come together in an effort to try to change it.”
So creating jobs for “Palestinians” is going to result in peace in the Middle East and a reduction in terror attacks against the US? Really?
Are you really this stupid or are you just blowing smoke up people’s keisters in order to make it appear you have a smidgen of an idea about what you’re doing?
Jobs and education are not going to end the “Palestinian” assaults against Israel, will not reduce terror attacks against the United States. In fact, those two things will likely increase the frequency and sophistication of the attacks on the both of us, you goofy goober, head-in-the-sand moron.
And speaking of jobs…how about you try creating a few in this country before you go and provide an income to terrorists and terror supporters?
What’s the matter? Afraid Cloward and Piven will give you the stink-eye?
…Yes, John, you are an idiot.
No wonder Obama put you in the position you hold. You’re just another DC bred sycophantic boob that has no idea of what’s really going on.
Al-Qaida’s branch in Iraq said it has merged with Syria’s extremist Jabhat al-Nusra, a move that shows the rising confidence of radicals within the Syrian rebel movement and is likely to trigger renewed fears among its international backers.
A website linked to Jabhat al-Nusra confirmed on Tuesday the merger with the Islamic State of Iraq, whose leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, first made the announcement in a 21-minute audio message posted on militant websites late Monday.
But, hey! Let’s provide them with weapons and support because that Arab Spring has been such a huge smash when it comes to freedom so far.
Yet another Islamic cleric recently made it permissible for the Islamic fighters waging a jihad in Syria—politely known as “the opposition”—to rape the nation’s women.
Salafi Sheikh Yasir al-‘Ajlawni, a Jordanian of origin who lived in Damascus, Syria for 17 years, posted a YouTube video last week where he said he was preparing to issue a “legitimate fatwa” making it legal (in the eyes of Islam) for those Muslims fighting to topple secular president Bashar Assad and install Sharia law to “capture and have sex with” all non-Sunni women, specifically naming Assad’s own sect, the Alawites, as well as the Druze and several others, basically, all non-Sunnis and non-Muslims.
The Sheikh used Islam’s legitimate Arabic term for these hapless, non-Muslim women, melk al-yamin, a phrase that appears in Islam’s sacred book, the Koran, and which is simply a reference to non-Muslim sex-slaves.
For example, Koran 4:3 commands Muslim men to “Marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four… or what your right hands possess.” Islam’s ulema, or “scholars,” are unanimously agreed that “what your right hands possess” is, according to Islamic law, simply a sex-slave. Linguistic evidence further suggests that she is seen more as an animal, a possession than a human—hence this inhuman fatwa.
Jordanian Sheih Yasir al-‘Ajlawni is certainly not the first cleric to legitimize the rape of infidel women in recent times. Calls to capture and rape non-Muslim women are appearing with increasing frequency and from all corners of the Islamic world.
A few months earlier, Saudi preacher Muhammad al-Arifi also issued a fatwa allowing jihadi fighters to engage in “intercourse marriage” with captive Syrian women that lasts for a few hours “in order to give each fighter a turn”—also known as gang-rape.
Oh yay! And Obama and McCain want to give these animals weapons and support.
What could go wrong.
But again, I won’t expect any of our raging leftists or feminists to say anything about this since it has nothing to do with free birth control or gay marriage.
Once again, extremist Muslims tried but failed to prevent Jews from accessing the holiest site in the Jewish faith, with the threat of attacks.
Dozens of Arab teens hurled rocks Sunday morning at groups of Jews who were touring the Temple Mount.
The site was open on the eve of the final day of the Passover holiday in the morning from 7:30 a.m to 11:00 a.m and scheduled to reopen from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the afternoon.
But a crowd of “at least 30″ Arab rioters gathered at about 10:30 a.m. and began hurling rocks at the Jewish visitors when they reached the site, the most sacred place in the world in Judaism.
But remember, it’s the Jews who are the intolerant, violent ones.
I’ll wait for the usual “you can’t judge because of the actions of a few” crowd.
He was meant to start school, learn how to read and write and meet friends. Instead he goes around carrying a rifle, runs for cover at the sound of shelling and smokes cigarettes.
At eight, Ahmed is already a soldier in the Free Syrian Army. His picture, holding a rifle and smoking a cigarette, has gone viral in the past week and has done what a thousand words could never do – it reminded the world of the terrible reality of the Syrian civil war. […]
So Obama, McCain and the rest of the Islamist boot lickers are wanting to arm and support a group that utilize child soldiers.
Glad to see that Kony campaign had such a positive effect.
And didn’t anyone tell these darn kids that smoking is bad for their health? Someone call Bloomberg.
Pakistani Police have arrested a vendor under the controversial blasphemy law for allegedly burning the pages of Quran in Lahore, officials said today.
Police had to rescue Ghulam Hussain, said to be in his thirties, from an angry mob that gathered outside his house in Shahdara area of Lahore yesterday.
“Before the angry mob broke into Hussain’s home, police reached the area and controlled the situation,” a senior police official said.
A case was registered against Hussain under the blasphemy law.
Superintendent of Police Imtiaz Sarwer said some children, who had gone to pick up a ball that fell inside Hussain’s house, had claimed they had seen him burning pages of the Quran.
The children reported the matter to their mother, who alerted the police, Sarwer said.
He said Hussain seemed to mentally deranged.
Some weeks ago, a mob torched and vandalized about 200 homes in a Christian neighbourhood in Badami Bagh area of Lahore after a Muslim man accused a Christian sanitation worker of blasphemy.
Local residents and police officials later said the Muslim man had made the accusation after a drunken quarrel with the Christian.
Egypt’s prosecutor general on Monday ordered the arrest of five prominent political activists accused of inciting violence against President Mohamed Mursi’s Muslim Brotherhood, a step the opposition decried as a reversal for democracy.
I could have sworn Obama and company said this Arab Spring thing was supposed to embark on a new age of freedom and democracy in Egypt and the rest of the Middle East. So far, all it has encouraged is the continued gang rape of women, violence, murder, religious persecution and the replacement of one dictator with another.
And we’re sending this savage money and arms.
Great call as always, Barry.
In 2009, Barack Obama gave a speech at Georgetown. In the background behind him was a symbol of the Catholic priest order, the Jesuits(Georgetown being a Jesuit-run school).
Obama had it covered up.
In 2013, Obama gives a speech in Ramallah. In the background behind him is a gigantic banner of Yasar Arafat, the leader of a terrorist organization that is responsible for the murder of thousands of civilian men, women and children.
Obama leaves it displayed.
Anyone wonder his priorities and loyalties lie?
