Today's sample list of the enrichment Islam brings to those of us who are culturally impoverished...
1. Ranking Islamic cleric advises the beating of disobedient women. But lightly mind you.
Except, the Koran does not say to beat women lightly.
In fact it says: "...and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them;". And that is all.
The "lightly" part was added to English translations because some Muslims felt it would make it more palatable to Western readers.
I suppose next the Saudis will fund some "tempura" houses across North America for lightly battered women...
Not saying that NATO partner Turkey is supporting the Islamic State or anything. Just the evidence that comes out nearly every single day says that.
A Californian non-profit mutual benefit corporation has filed a lawsuit against Kuveyt-Türk Participation Bank (KTPB), a Turkey-based financial institution, for providing financial benefits, money and financial services to the Islamic State (ISIS).
St. Francis Assisi (SFA), whose members are Assyrian Christians, are suing KTPB, Kuwait Finance House (KFH) – a Kuwait-based bank which owns KTPB – and an individual named Hajjaj al-Ajmi, who actively fundraises for ISIS in Iraq and Syria. SFA have claimed ISIS have targeted and murdered Assyrian Christians in Iraq and Syria and forced them into refugee camps, they said they want compensation for damages.
The charge brought against KTPB and KFH is conspiring to commit acts of international terrorism, resulting in the killing, attempted killing, and maiming of SFA members. They “continuously, knowingly, directly, and willfully provide, distribute, and administer the distribution of financial benefits, money and financial services to the terrorist organization ISIS,” according to the complaint file.
3. Kenya shows near infinite more common sense than Germany as it closes border to Somalia to shut out Al Shabab
MOGADISHU, Somalia — Kenya has closed its notoriously porous border with neighbouring Somalia, a move aimed at keeping out illegal immigrants from Somalia as well as dangerous Al Shabaab militants.
Hundreds of Kenyan Defense Forces (KDF) have been deployed at the border lines, such as Mandera and Balad-Hawo which are located on Somali-Kenyan border. The residents of both towns confirmed the closure of the border.
This means that Kenya may get to exist for a while as a self determining state -- something Western leaders have elected not to do, despite lack of consultation with their constituents on the issue.
In the UK, the police occasionally hand out a thing called an "Osmon warning" when there is a threat with reasonable seriousness against a British citizen, but the police have no intention or ability to protect the person threatened.
It is a kind of "te absolvo" the police give to themselves.
"Ere ya is mate! Them jihadis want ta kills ya, and now we let ya know, so we is off the 'ook for anything that happens to ya from now on. Ere mate this doesn't mean ya get to defend yaself or carries a weapon or anything. It just means when they carries it out, we aint responsible! Have a wonderful rest of the day. Or your life. Whichever comes first."
It appears the Osmon warning is now going to be part of Canadian life as well, thanks to Islam, and our government's refusal to deal with it, as well as its refusal allow the rest of us to defend ourselves.
The security services of Canada will, however, most likely continue to stage looting raids against law-abiding Canadians as they did in High River.
I guess we are all in the Pulse Club now.
5. Trump explains that we have to watch the mosques
This is is the best thing any candidate has said so far. The problem is Islam, as taught through the mosques, funded by the Saudis and coordinated via the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Islamic State is far less of a problem than the mosque down the street from each of us.
Why not throw in an extra story -- I am just getting warmed up here...
My! What a quaint way to explain how Germans are coming to dislike uninvited guests who rape them, rob them and literally crap in their flowerpots.
A study by the University of Leipzig has revealed a growing suspicion and even hatred towards Muslims over the past two years. It found that Germans have also become increasingly skeptical of politics and the police.
The latest in a series of biennial surveys conducted by the university compared German attitudes towards xenophobia, anti-Semitism, sexism and the trivialization of Nazism.
Presented in Berlin on Wednesday by scientists Oliver Decker and Elmar Brähler, the research team found a significant increase in resentment towards Muslims and also a greater willingness far-right fanatics to use violence, if necessary, to uphold their beliefs.
Greater suspicion of politics and the police? Must be some inherent flaw with the German people. What else could it be?
