1. San Bernardino jihadis' motive is now known. They didn't want to attend a Christmas party.
One of the terrorists who slaughtered 14 people at a California office’s holiday party was furious that her Muslim husband had to attend the festive luncheon, which was studded with Christmas decorations, police said.
But later on it says:
Friday marks the first anniversary of the shooting rampage. The San Bernardino County Department of Public Health scheduled a training session for its health inspectors on Dec. 1, 2015, and followed up the work meeting with a holiday luncheon.
So the meeting was work. But there was a staff Christmas party after to which he was invited.
So he clearly didn't have to go. Not that it would excuse a mass killing/terrorism event if he did. A quick, calling-in-sick would have achieved the goal of not going.
(ANSA-AP) - BUDAPEST - The far-right mayor of a Hungarian village says councilors have voted to ban the construction of mosques and the activity of muezzins, as well as the use of veils and headscarves like burqas, chadors and burkinis worn by Muslim women.
Asotthalom mayor Laszlo Toroczkai says the ordinance was adopted to defend the village's "community and traditions" from any EU scheme to resettle asylum-seekers among the members of the 28-nation bloc.
3. In France, a mosque was shut down for terror ties and terror advocacy.
A tent was erected and pretty much the same people, except the ones actually jailed, continued to operate, and prayers take place now on streets as well, in order to frustrate the locals into reopening the mosque.
Below are two videos on this subject, the second of which, is an odd sort of debate in Parliament about opening it and also preventing it from being a vehicle for Islamic terrorism.
There is a simple solution of course. Muslims can agree that prayers will be allowed on the streets when the rest of the public can drive through the mosques.
Judge Audrey Balla said the ruling, the first of its kind in the country, was necessary because the veil prevented him from reading Moutia Elzahed’s expression.
Ms Elzahed refused a number of alternatives, including the court being closed to the public, as she gave evidence or the opportunity to give evidence in a smaller, more private room.
Her counsel Clive Evatt explained: “I’m instructed that she’s of the Muslim religion and it’s against her religion to reveal her face to men, although not to women.
“Therefore, I’m instructed she will not remove her veil, if that’s the correct expression, or whatever it is.”
The fact that she was given a choice to wear the veil and not give testimony, or remove it and give testimony, is the very definition and core of freedom, will be lost to critics of this event.
The critics, leftists and Muslims will insist that everyone not of the West has a right to transform western culture and legal system under a fake set of rights, while smashing the real rights which exist in our various classical legal codes.
