Facebook and Pakistan look into “cracking down on blasphemy”

1. UK: “Police were scrambled” to scene of Koran in garbage

Police were scrambled to an area of Bradford Thursday night after an angry mob of local Muslims gathered because copies of Quran had been found in a skip.

A local bookshop, specialising in the “distribution of Islamic goods”, was closing down and had been clearing the last of its stock.

Videos of Islamic texts being disposed of spread rapidly online and further footage of angry crowds outside the store on Thursday evening have been viewed by tens of thousands of people.


2. Erdogan urges Turks in Europe to have five children

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on Turks living in Europe to have at least five children, saying it would be the best response to Europe's "injustices."

Erdogan made the comments Friday while campaigning in the city of Eskisehir for a referendum that would usher in a presidential system and enhance his powers.


3. Pennsylvania: Two sentenced for making Nigerian nanny “a slave”

The Palmer Township couple acknowledged they plotted to smuggle the woman in to care for their two sons, ages 1 and 2, and didn't pay her minimum wage. She was 54 when she posed as John Ibechem's mother, who was actually dead, and used the mother's passport to enter the U.S. unlawfully.

The victim provided around-the-clock care for the children and was paid about $20 every other week. She was swindled out of about $205,000 in wages, prosecutors said.

"I felt trapped. I thought I was going to die," the woman said in a letter read Thursday in federal court. She wasn't in court for the sentencing.


4. Terrifying CCTV of attempted rape in UK

The brave woman managed to punch the violent attacker but not after he had undone his trousers and cornered her in a driveway.

Chilling CCTV footage from the early evening attack shows a bearded man on the EL2 bus in Dagenham, east London, which he left to follow his 22-year-old victim.


5. Pakistan asks Facebook to help fight blasphemy

Pakistan says it has asked Facebook to help investigate "blasphemous content" posted on the social network by Pakistanis.

Facebook has agreed to send a team to Pakistan to address reservations about content on the social media site, according to the interior ministry.

Blasphemy is a highly sensitive and incendiary issue in Pakistan.

Critics say blasphemy laws, which allow the death penalty in some cases, are often misused to oppress minorities.
Earlier this week Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif voiced his support for a wide-ranging crackdown on blasphemous content on social media.


BONUS: For those of you who enjoyed the Jordan Peterson lecture given in Ottawa, all of the Q&A have been added to the original Rebel post.

@andrew Mirlach….actually Erdogan is the reason why so many Turks have left Turkieh and he does not have as many fans as he would like to think. Turkieh was becoming a showcase modern secular state until people started singing “gimme that old time religion” and elected Erdogan.

I was aquainted with a “young Turk” when I worked at my uncle’s carpet store in Hamilton. It was unusual that a Turk should be working there considering most of the employees were Armenian and relatives of my uncle’s partner, but none of them held any animosity toward him because he was far too young to have any connection to the Armenian holocaust. He was physically outstanding. A weight lifter, body builder, wrestler, and carpet installer. He could rip 12 foot lengths of carpet with his bare hands and I’m talking English broadloom, not the cheap stuff.

He lost contact with his father during one of the many political turmoils in Turkieh and went there to find him. Being of dual citizenship he was subject to Turkish army conscription on arrival in Turkieh. Because of his physical condition he was assigned to an elite unit and the graduating ordeal involved being parachuted into trackless desert with only a day’s water and rations to see if his survival drive would get him out. He was then assigned to be a border guard at an outpost where the previous three guards were found with a neat bullet hole between the blue and red dots (symbolizing fire and water) painted on their helmets. He wasn’t at the border outpost very many days when a camel caravan arrived. The elder man at the head of the caravan dismounted and approached him…a younger man still mounted slowly approached behind him. The younger man had a rifle across his shoulders that was an antique jezail (looks like one of those things the sand people in Star Wars would use to take pot shots at pod racers).
The young man had carried the rifle in water yoke position for so long that his arms had grown unusually long in order to accomodate it.

The older man explained that he was an opium merchant and that all of his family’s resources were invested in the caravan. He had a delivery to make and he fully intended to make that delivery. He offered my Turkish friend two choices…either accept a bribe equivalent to nearly four years wages in the Turkish army…or be found like the others with a hole…and he tapped with his finger on the spot between the red and blue dots on his helmet. As they were speaking the younger man in the caravan had brought his camel to kneeling dismount position and on cue when the older man touched the spot on the helmet deftly turned into position and cocked the cap lock on his gun.

The previous soldiers were Turks who had no place to go if they deserted….my friend still had his Canadian passport. He said later that he had always considered himself a Turk, but that trip convinced him that he was a Canadian and he wanted nothing to do with Turkieh. I doubt that he would ever do anything just to please Erdogan.

All of the migrants have a story. I think it reasonable to hear their story before admitting them to Canada.

These Muslim liars and hypocrites only weep and cry about “anti-Muslim” backlashes.
And how sick the non-Muslim sympathizers are! Justin Trudeau being a prime example.
Justin Trudeau is an evil threat to our democratic freedom.
If he were assassinated graveyard dead by a Muslim terrorist, it would be poetic (and ironic) justice.

Hey, fellow Canadians, and lovers of democratic freedom all over the world, have you heard your so-called “moderate” Muslim friends complain or protest or condemn Islamic barbaric terrorist atrocities?
I have not.
Keep a careful watch.
Islam and the Muslim religion and its so-called holy book the Koran are evil.
The greatest threat to the civilized, democratic, peaceful world in our age.

Don’t use Facebook, lovers of Freedom and Truth and Justice, fight for the utter annihilation of this evil corporation. Facebook users are morally irresponsible idiots. Facebook is Globalist, neo-Marxist, Islamic enemy. Wipe this evil disease off the face of the Internet.
commented 2017-03-19 17:08:31 -0400
Facebook is not only for morons (the goofs who use it)……it is Evil. Boycott it totally.
commented 2017-03-19 17:06:59 -0400
Throw all Korans (an evil book, like Mien Kampf) into the rubbish bin.
Dear friends of Truth and Freedom………….BOYCOTT Facebook….an evil Islamist, Globalist, anti-Western
Civilization organization with way, way too much power.

“There really does need to be a new social media app that replaces the googles, face books and twitters.”

Agreed. The problem will be one that is completely non-partisan. I once considered signing up for Twitter, however did not follow through when they began asking for Banking Information. WTF! I still get emails asking me to complete the process.

Facebook has so much power that they seem to be able to avoid anti-trust law. They certainly behave like a monopoly and it is time they faced the music for thier censorship.

Regarding the three evil witches , Quran , MeinKampf and Communist Manifesto , all three should be burned together for the crimes against humanity they have all caused.
All three should appear juxtaposed in order to amplify their content as political and contrary to civilized democratic society.

FRASER MCBURNEY;

The Canadian Government should give a $5,000 bonus for every child Born to Canadians. This way Canada might breed it’s way out of obscurity. This would be in addition to regular payments.

1/ They should have recycled these books, they would have made good Toilet Paper. Then they would have ended up in the Koranic Kan.

2/ Yes, breed like Rats.

3/ The Couple who enslaved this Woman, they would not be Muslims, by any chance?

4/ Another Muslim following his favorite hobby?

5/ Blasphemous content? Are You suggesting that Pakistani people actually use bad language?

All the more reason to not use Facebook. Only reason I have an account is because they refuse to delete it. When I try to deactivate it, Facebook does not.

Every poisonous Quran in the world should be burned. Islam is the scourge of society.

The Europeans (if they had a lick of sense) would deport all Turks and let them have their 5 children at home.

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 32,990 Attacks, 211,567 Killed, 295,670 Injured that we know of.

THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD ONLY GIVE A BABY BONUS FOR THE FIRST CHILD THE OTHER CHILDREN ARE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARENTS

“Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on Turks living in Europe to have at least five children, saying it would be the best response to Europe’s “injustices.”
And the Kurds, having at least 5 children to native Turkey’s 1.5-2 children is the best response to Turkey’s “injustices”. http://www.ibtimes.com/ Turkey will be a majority Kurdish Nation in a couple Generations. One would think they would rather stay at home than invade Europe?
