Male supremacism must be moderated - the dominos must start to fall - banning the headscarf has enormous implications that many don't realize

Muslim women: Dress code violates faith
Mission Foods, a New Brighton tortilla maker, is accused of religious intolerance for requiring six Muslim workers to wear uniforms that include pants they say are too revealing.

A group of Muslim workers allege they were fired by a New Brighton tortilla factory for refusing to wear uniforms that they say were immodest by Islamic standards.

Six Somali women claim they were ordered by a manager to wear pants and shirts to work instead of their traditional Islamic clothing of loose-fitting skirts and scarves, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a civil liberties group that is representing the women.

The women have filed a religious discrimination complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

"For these women, wearing tight-fitting pants is like being naked," said Valerie Shirley, a spokeswoman for the Minnesota chapter of CAIR. "It's simply not an option."

The connection between "honor/coward killings", rape, murder and male supremacism in islam

Hamburg 'honour killing' suspect now faces rape inquiry

The 23-year-old Afghan-German arrested in the suspected honour killing of his 16-year-old sister last week is now under investigation for rape, police said on Thursday.

"We are looking into other suspicions of rape in another incident," said a spokesperson for the public prosecutor's office in response to media reports.

German daily Die Welt reported Thursday that the man had met a young Afghan woman online, who he drugged and raped with an accomplice in Hamburg. He allegedly gloated about the incident online.

The man admitted to police that he killed his sister last week because she had turned away from her family, DDP reported. The family immigrated to Germany from Afghanistan 13 years ago, German news magazine Der Spiegel reported in its online edition. Both siblings have German citizenship.

The girl died early on Friday morning of multiple stab wounds in Hamburg's Sankt Georg district.

The man had already been prosecuted for assaulting his sister and others. He was sentenced in March on an assault charge to one year and five months without possibility of probation, the Hamburg prosecutor's office told German press agency DDP on Monday.

The man had requested his March sentence be deferred, prosecutors said. He was notified in writing on Wednesday - a day before the stabbing - that the request had been rejected.

Police were also investigating earlier claims that he assaulted two of his sisters, including the girl stabbed last week.

A series of six honour killings in Berlin - including the shooting at a bus stop of 23-year-old Turkish woman Hatun Sürücü - shook Germany in 2005. Sürücü's youngest brother, Ayhan Sürücü, later confessed to killing her because he did not approve of her Western lifestyle.

Philly's Black Muslims Increasingly Turn to Polygamy
All Things Considered, May 27, 2008 · Although polygamy is illegal in the U.S. and most mosques try to discourage plural marriages, some Muslim men in America have quietly married multiple wives.

No one knows how many Muslims in the U.S. live in polygamous families. But according to academics researching the issue, estimates range from 50,000 to 100,000 people.

You can see some of the women involved in polygamous marriages in the lobby of Sanctuary for Families, a nonprofit women's center in New York City. It bursts with color as a dozen women in bright African dresses and head wraps gather for a weekly noon meeting for West African immigrants. The women come each week to this support group where they discuss hard issues, such as domestic abuse, medical problems, immigration hurdles and polygamy.

Polygamy is freely practiced in parts of Africa, and almost every one of the women in the group has experienced polygamy firsthand – either as a wife in a plural marriage or having been raised in families with one father who has two or more wives.

Group member Sarah says that in her native Guinea, the husband springs it on his wife that he's going to marry someone else. Sarah, like the others interviewed for this story, would give only her first name.

"Sometimes he say, 'OK, I am going to be married tomorrow,' or 'I'm going to be married today.' He's going ask you like that. It happened to me," she says.

Sarah begins to cry. Others nod in sympathy. These women are all Muslim. The Koran states that men may marry up to four women. The Prophet Mohammad had multiple wives.

How about the doctor getting a "light" form of castration for himself? These monsters obviously enjoy brutalizing helpless little girls

Netherlands: Doctor calls to allow light form of female circumcision
Jannes Mulder, former internist and oncologist, writing in the Dutch medical journal Medisch Contact, says that girls are still being circumcises, even though the procedure is banned.

The Dutch Council for Public Health estimates that at least 50 girls are circumcised every year, mostly in the Somali community.

Honor Killing Victim Wanted to Live Like other German Girls

At age 16, all Morsal Obeidi wanted was to live the way other girls in Germany do. She paid dearly: Obeidi's brother stabbed her 20 times. Her murder has sparked a renewed debate in Germany about the failure of many immigrant families to integrate into Western society.

Morsal is buried one week after her death. In the morning, the women wash the body, cleansing it of its earthly sins, in keeping with tradition.

Iranian man jailed over feminism petition:

A male defender of the feminist cause in Iran has been sentenced to a year in prison, the moderate Kargozaran newspaper reported on Monday.

Amir Yaqoubali is a supporter of the "One Million Signatures" petition campaign launched in June 2006. According to a feminist website, he was arrested as he collected signatures.

The campaign seeks to change the Islamic republic's laws on marriage, divorce, inheritance and child custody by collecting signatures both online and in person.

In recent months four feminists -- Rezvan Moghadam, Nahid Jafari, Nasrin Afzali and Marzieh Mortazi Langueroudi -- were handed down suspended sentences of six months in prison and 10 lashes by Tehran Revolutionary Court for disorderly conduct in public.

Laws against polygamy are front and center in the war to moderate extremism - Wake up, cowardly moderate muslims

GTA's secret world of polygamy

Safa Rigby holds her youngest of five children in their home, May 21, 2008. Rigby had it all. Four great kids. A faithful husband. Then she found out about his other wives. Email story

Voices: Polygamy laws POLL: Should laws banning polygamy in Canada be enforced?

It's among the last taboos in a society where little shocks us.As Toronto mother describes her ordeal, imam admits he has `blessed' over 30 unions

There were no pleasantries, there was no small talk. Safa Rigby had expected to hear her husband's voice when the phone rang one morning. Instead, the caller didn't even bother to say hello.

"You think you know your husband. You don't know him at all," said the man, a friend of her husband's. "His car is parked outside my house right now. He is with my ex-wife. They just got married last week," the man said.

It took a minute for the news to sink in. Then she called her husband of 14 years, demanding to know if what she had just been told was true – that while she spent a year in Egypt raising their four children in a more Islamic environment, he had used it as an opportunity to marry not just one, but two other women in Toronto.

"Yes, I'm married," he said, quashing all her dreams of their future together.

He told her he was married in a small ceremony 20 days earlier, officiated by Aly Hindy, a well-known Toronto imam, at his Scarborough mosque.

How soon before necktie wearers are butchered? Note the link with "the veil"

Iran fights national threat from neckties
Apparel 'contradict the nature of culture'

Iran is considering a new campaign to fend off the latest threat it has faced – men's ties.

"Imports of some apparel are not banned but serious action should be taken to stop the import of ties which contradict the nature of Iranian culture," Asghar Hamidi, the nation's customs bureau deputy head, told the Fars news agency.

An English report on the growing controversy was carried by Agence France-Presse.

"We need to change the country's import regulations to this end," the report quoted Hamidi saying. His responsibilities also include work on the Iranian state plan for the "development of culture, chastity and the veil."

The wearing of ties has been banned in government offices in Iran since the 1979 Islamic revolution because it represents a "westernization" of the Iranian culture. However, before that the U.S.-backed shah had promoted ties.

Following the shah's fall from power, members of Iran's Basij militia would go so far as to patrol streets with scissors in order to snip ties that men were brave enough to wear, AFP said.

The latest comments come in light of a crackdown launched in 2007 on "unIslamic" dress, which has focused mostly on women, who now are mandated to "fully cover" their hair and body and avoid "western" styles.

Raping of little black girls after prayers??? All muslims worldwide bear responsibility and blaming others will just escalate the insantiy

That's what Muhammad the self proclaimed prophet of Islam called Jews and Christians in his Koran. We start by asking this question: Do you consider mohammad saying this to be a prophet or a Thug? And how would you judge the Muslims aggreeing with him, calling him "The most honorable of all prophets, the sublime of all creations, the one that came to fulfill the best of deeds, sent to be Mercy for the Worlds. Koran 21:107 " We will lay open the shame of Islam that is not taught in the Islamic studies of the best Universities, and leave the verdict to the jury. This is the start, and the best is yet to come. Our aim is an open public debate on the Koran, to ban it for the evil it spreads.

The followers of Mohammad at work in Nigeria: Terror, kidnapping, raping little girls, looting, destruction of Churches and Christian businesses

That's what they pray for five times a day, so guess who their prophet, and their allah are?

Islam is never idle. The savage events in Nigeria proves that muslims don’t have to be a majority to spread the only thing they excelled in practicing, the legacy of their thug prophet and the allah he created on his own image. Death, destruction, looting, kidnapping and raping of little girls. Which they call the islamization through the kafirs’ vagina.

Their “No compulsion in religion,” garbage, is true, since islam is anything but religion. Except the kidnapping religion, the little girls vagina’s religion, the burning of Churches religion, the looting and destruction of Christian businesses and homes religion, the beheadings religion, the subversion and deception religion, the evil’s religion, and the total desolation religion.

Absolutely BRILLIANT bloodless cultural linchpin warfare - will have enormous assimilation consequences

Italy: Ethnic food may be off the menu in Roman schools

Ethnic food may be removed from government schools in the Italian capital, Rome, in the latest gesture by the city's new centre-right government to target multiculturalism.

Laura Marsilio, city councillor for schools in Rome, said the local government would re-evaluate the ethnic menus of public schools, and replace it with what she called "Italian regional dishes as well as typical mediterranean cuisine."

Marsilio spoke to the media on Monday and said that the 'ethnic menus', introduced by the previous centre-left government of Romano Prodi "gave insufficient results."

Marsilio reportedly also plans to look at centres where parents of immigrant children and their relatives are taught Italian, the laws of the country and computer classes.

"We need to see if they are really effective for integration," Marsilio said.

The councillor also plans to ensure laws are respected with regards to the number of Italian and immigrant children in schools, because in some cases, immigrant children outnumber Italian children.

The 40-year-old Marsilio is a member of the post-fascist National Alliance party, a member of prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's conservative coalition.

In an interview with Italian daily Il Nuovo in 2002, Marsilio, a city council member at the time said "To give housing to nomads (Roma Gypsies) would be a social injustice" and that they should live in "isolated camps under police surveillance."

"They have to learn to respect the rules. They steal and mistreat minors, I don’t like them. Not because I am racist, but because they don’t obey the rules," said Marsilio.

Why appeasement of evil always leads to escalating evil - 66,000 known (many more unknown) castrations in Britain alone

Iran launches fresh crackdown on websites:

Iranian authorities have blocked access to several websites and blogs of women's rights advocates and journalists critical of the government, a press report said on Tuesday.

The move follows a new directive sent out by a committee tasked with identifying illegal websites to Internet service providers, the reformist Etemad Melli newspaper said without giving a source.

"There seems to be a tougher approach this time as some sites and weblogs belonging to women's rights and human rights campaigners, writers critical of the government and well-known journalists" have been singled out, it said.

Internet providers in Iran have in recent years been told to block access to hundreds of political, human rights and women's sites and weblogs ..............

Muslims against sharia are starting a campaign to save lives - the dominos will start to fall

Note to MAS: please include castration of helpless little girls in your petition

The STOP HONORCIDE! campaign was launched on Mother's Day 2008.

The goal of the campaign is to prosecute honorcides to the fullest extent of the law. We want honorcide to be classified as a hate crime and we advocate for every existing hate crime legislation to be amended to include honorcide.
If you wish to support STOP HONORCIDE!, please send us an email with your name, title (if applicable) and a short statement of support.

If you would like to lobby your elected official(s) to amend current hate crime legislation to include honorcide, you may use the letter below or you can draft your own letter.

Campaign Co-Chairs
Linda Ahmed, Muslims Against Sharia

Title Name

Dear Title Name,

(As your constituent,) I urge you to amend name or number of the statute law to include honorcide. Honorcide is a heinous crime practiced in backwards societies. Honorcide or honor killing is a murder of a female by her male family member(s), when a female is believed to have brought dishonor on her family. This so-called "dishonor" includes, among other things, refusing an arranged marriage, being the victim of a sexual assault, seeking a divorce, dating a non-Muslim, or simply refusing to wear a hijab. It is appalling that in twenty-first century America honorcides are still taking place. But what is even more appalling is that honorcide is deemed to be acceptable by members of some religious and ethnic communities. We must put a stop to it. Any form of gender discrimination, especially honorcide, has no place in any civilized society, but especially not in America.

Please introduce the bill to amend name or number of the statute law to include honorcide.

Germany understands that ending the brutal subjugation of women is key to moderating islam

Germany: Muslim women's emancipation key to integration
The German interior minister said Tuesday that the emancipation of women within Germany's Islamic communities was the key to continued social integration.

In an interview with the Berliner Tagespiegel newspaper Wolfgang Schaeubler said, "That women have the same rights is one of the things which Muslims must accept."

" Female empowerment is one of the great hopes for the development of a modern democratic society."

The minister's Christian Democratic Union party (CSU) places great emphasis on what it sees as family-based western European values, including the integration of Islam in an open and moderate form.

Islam is Germany's largest minority religion. Since the 1960s the country has experienced large scale immigration from predominantly Islamic Turkey and the avoidance of segregation is a key aim for both sides of Germany's ruling grand coalition.

In the same interview Schaeubler said that German children should be speaking German at home. At present many children from immigrant backgrounds do not encounter the national language until they start to attend kindergarten.

is islam the religion of incest?

Incest is Halal in Islam

An Egyptian professor of Philosophy Dr. Hasan Hanafi stirred up a hornet's nest among Muslims by comparing the Quran with a supermarket where you can find whatever you are looking for. Muslims declared him apostate and called for his beheading. Actually Dr Hanafi is a true Muslim who understands Quran correctly. Quran is a truly universal book. It is for every one, including killers, robbers, polygamists, rapists, pedophiles, incest artists, you name it. Even those who desire to sleep with their own underage daughters find an aya for it. That is the reason why Muslims love the Quran, read it day and night and never want to change it..

Pakistani Ulema: Use Of Mobile Phones By Women Forbidden In Islam

The ulema in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province have declared that use of mobile phones by women is haram, or forbidden in Islam. The Urdu-language newspaper Roznama Khabrain reported that the imam of Jama Masjid Hazrat Umar Farooq made the announcement during his Friday sermon.

Jama Masjid Hazrat Umar Farooq is situated in the Hashtnagri police district of Peshawar. According to the report, the Imam said the religious scholars of the province have agreed by consensus that women cannot use mobile phones. He also said that men are permitted to receive and make calls but mobile phones cannot be used for non-shari’a purposes.

Horrific example of why extremism must be moderated with bloodless cultural linchpin laws


Ordeal of an American Woman, Married to a Muslim

It is true Muslims do beat their wives, if not with their hand, its with there strict ways and controlling habits.

I know for a fact that it is true because I am a young American woman and I am married to a Muslim man. I have two kids from the past that is not his but he loves them as if they were his. But the problem is that we have no life.

Ever since we got married, he is very controlling. In 5 years, he has hit me 4 times.

Once we have got married, everything changed. I no longer have a car because he thinks I do not need one. I am not allowed to work. He dose not won't me to have anything to do with my family, see them or phone them unless it is my mother.

Me and my kids stay in the house all the time. We never get to go any where unless it is to shop for food at the store.

He is very strict. He checks my phone call records to make sure that I am not taking to anyone that I am not suppose to be talking to.

He tells me when to cook, when to wash, when to sleep, and what to wear. I have to wear long skirts. I am not allowed to wear pants.

My husband works 15 hours a day, while me and the kids are stuck in the house because he demands I must obey him. I am not allowed to have any friends.

No matter what I say or do he never trusts me. And I am below him. No matter what I say it is not important; no matter what I need, it is not Important to him. But everything he need or wants he gets and everything must be about him.

I am a good American women. His food is cooked everyday when he gets home, the house is cleaned very well everyday. I am a good house wife and I obey his every command.

I am crying as I write this e-mail because I am being abused by strictness and there is nothing I feel that I can do because I no longer have a job to support my kids. I have no family that will take me and my kids in if I leave.

I have no car. Before marriage, I had a job, I had a car and I supported my kids. He has taken everything away from me including my self-confidence.

I feel useless to myself and my kids. I have no outside life, friends, family, support, or help. I am always depressed and crying, never happy always sad.

Before I was a person who always smiled; no matter what, I could over come it. I was a happy person and loving no matter what. I'm still loving; I will help anyone, give them my last penny and the shirt off my back. I have a good heart and I am a good wife. I do not drink, club or ever done drugs because I came from a good family. He has taken everything from me and still demands more, I have nothing more to give and I feel so sad and useless because I can't help myself.

I cry day and night asking god why me. I am a good person what have I done to be punished like this. All I want to do is take my kids to the park, out to eat, to the beach, have family, friends or just some one to make me feel like I am needed other than cooking and cleaning.

Can some one please help me. I am to young for this and the outside world is passing by while me and my kids life is inside the house only. I am drowning in my own tears with no way out and I can't take it anymore. I want my kids to have a life while they are young.

Why appeasement of evil always leads to escalating evil - 66,000 known (many more unknown) castrations in Britain alone


The unspeakable practice of female circumcision (castration) that's destroying young women's lives in Britain

Female Genital mutilation: (66,000) of British-African girls have been forcibly 'cut' (castrated)

The girl is 15 years old but looks much younger. Her face has the fine-boned elegance typical of her native Somalia, but her accent belongs to the streets of East London. She is plainly terrified. That much is clear from the way she avoids eye contact and constantly fidgets in her chair.

"Promise you won't print my name or anything?" she implores repeatedly. "Promise no one will ever know that I've spoken to you? If people in my community find out, they'll say that I've betrayed them and I'll have to run away. And anyway, I don't want my parents to be sent to jail."

With great courage, this British-Somali girl - she asks that we call her "Lali" - is about to describe a barbaric act of ritualised cruelty which has been perpetrated against her. Knowing the danger to which she is exposing herself, her anxiety is entirely understandable.

The filthy old bulls of polygamy need to rid themselves of more excess young males, to have more castrated little girls

Jailed man takes race claim to VCATA

A MAN jailed for kidnapping a single mother and setting her on fire triggered a $30,000 tribunal hearing during the week - effectively to argue about $1.20 in lost pay.

Loddon prison inmate Hasan Huseyin Alipek sought the VCAT hearing over claims he was denied a jail factory leading hand job because of his poor English skills.

Serial litigant Alipek said the alleged discrimination had financially disadvantaged him and made him wonder if there was something wrong with him.

He asked tribunal deputy president Cate McKenzie during the three-day hearing to reduce his prison sentence as compensation.

A prison guard told the tribunal she had not even considered Alipek for the job and his language skills had nothing to do with the decision.

The job was given to a prisoner who had been longer at the factory than Alipek, the guard said.

The tribunal also heard Alipek assaulted another inmate soon after missing out on the job and would have been ineligible for promotion.

Women Are Being Beheaded for Taking Their Veil Off": Honor (genocide against women) Killings On Rise in Iraq

"Women Are Being Beheaded for Taking Their Veil Off": Honor Killings On Rise in Iraq

In Basra alone, police acknowledge that 15 women a month are murdered for breaching Islamic dress codes. Others say the number is higher. Tools

At first glance Shawbo Ali Rauf appears to be slumbering on the grass, her pale brown curls framing her face, her summer skirt spread about her. But the awkward position of her limbs and the splattered blood reveal the true horror of the scene.

The 19-year-old Iraqi was, according to her father, murdered by her own in-laws, who took her to a picnic area in Dokan and shot her seven times. Her crime was to have an unknown number on her mobile phone. Her "honor killing" is just one in a grotesque series emerging from Iraq, where activists speak of a "genocide" against women in the name of religion.

15 a month is just the tip of the iceberg for the genocide/castration against women

Banning veil in all govt offices schools and the workplace is a critical linchpin in moderating extremism

Veil can come off, Muslim shows
Detroiter is suing Hamtramck judge

When a Hamtramck district court judge told Ginnah Muhammad she couldn't testify in a 2006 small claims lawsuit unless she removed her veil, she was willing to lose the case for a religious principle.

But when she showed up Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Detroit to appear in a religious discrimination lawsuit against the Hamtramck judge, the 44-year-old Detroit Muslim not only removed her veil, but she removed her black head-to-toe garment and produced a Michigan driver's license containing a photo of her unveiled face.

A contradiction?

Not so, Muhammad and her lawyer said after a 30-minute hearing before U.S. District Judge John Feikens.

Muhammad said she would have removed her veil in Hamtramck had Judge Paul Paruk allowed her to testify before a female judge. Paruk is the only district judge in Hamtramck. He also declined her request for a change of venue.

Muhammad said she routinely removes her veil at the request of female airport screeners, who check her in a private room.

Muhammad said that's the procedure a court security officer used Tuesday to screen her, and the procedure that was used to have her driver's license photo taken by the Michigan Secretary of State.

"Everyone else has accommodated her," her lawyer, Nabih Ayad of Plymouth, said after Tuesday's hearing, in which Muhammad sought to prevent Paruk from requiring other Muslim women to remove their veils in court.

Paruk demanded she remove her veil so he could assess her credibility. Ayad said judges in other countries assess the credibility of Muslim women by watching how they use their hands.

During Tuesday's hearing, Feikens hinted that he might take no action. Both Ayad and Assistant Michigan Attorney General Margaret Nelson acknowledged under questioning that U.S. Supreme Court decisions permit Feikens to decline to take a stand on the issue.

If that happens, Ayad said he would appeal to the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. Ayad said he's willing to take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Muhammad, who runs a skin-care business in Oak Park, sued a car rental company for $3,000 in 2006 after it tried to charge her to repair damage caused by thieves.

Ayad told Feikens that Muhammad is a devout Muslim who has been wearing a veil since she was 10. When she refused to remove her veil in the Hamtramck case, Paruk dismissed her suit. Meanwhile, the car rental firm won a judgment against her.

Ayad argued that Paruk violated her right to practice her religion and denied her access to the court.

"She feels she is fighting for all similarly situated Muslims," Ayad said.

Nelson countered that Paruk's request had "only incidental impact on her expression of religion" and that he treated her consistently with others who testify in his court.
