2. Muslims in India burn their diapers as the cartoon cat whiskers kinda sorta look like the word, “Mohammad” in Arabic
Muslim protests in India are calling for a boycott of Pampers products after claiming to have seen the word “Mohammed” in the face of a cartoon cat which appears on its nappies.
The lines illustrating the whiskers, nose, mouth and left eye of the smiley feline allegedly bear a close resemblance to the Prophet's name when written in Arabic or Urdu.
The image on the hygiene product has been branded an “insult” to Islam by critics, and protesters have staged “Pampers burnings”.
In 2005, Burger King was intimidated into changing its logo, a stylized image of a soft-serve ice cream cone after a Muslim claimed it resembled the word Allah in Arabic, in 2008, Sony submitted to a similar complaint as did Sweden's H&M when they recalled a sock design due to a complaint that it sort of resembled the word for Allah.

A US Embassy in Montenegro has been blasted with a grenade by an unnamed attacker who then blew himself up with a second device, American officials have confirmed.
The attack in the capital city of Podgorica happened just before midnight last night. The embassy was closed at the time of the incident.
Montenegro's government confirmed an unknown assailant threw the grenade into the embassy compound and then blew himself up with another explosive device.
There are no deaths except of the attacker.
A man died after attempting to throw a grenade over the wall of the U.S. Embassy early Thursday in Montenegro's capital of Podgorica, authorities said.
A grenade appeared to have gone off as it was thrown into the air, and the man detonated a second device that killed him, police said, calling the death a suicide. The man's body was found 100 feet from the embassy's wall, according to Steve Goldstein, U.S. undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs.
4. Number of Rotherham Rape Gang Victims Rises to 1,500, Officers Expand Operation
The number of victims of Rotherham grooming and rape gangs has risen even higher than the 1,400 figure which shocked the nation in 2014, the National Crime Agency (NCA) has revealed.
The revelations come as millions of pounds continue to be pumped into an independent review of the mass sex crimes in the town, with hundreds of officers still expanding their work on the scandal.
The 2014 report by Professor Alexis Jay exposed how largely Pakistani-heritage, Muslim men had systematically exploited 1,400 mostly white girls in the northern town between 1997 and 2013, whose abuse was largely ignored by authorities due to political correctness.
5. Pakistan: Thousands-Strong Muslim Mob Demands Beheading of Christian Teen for “Blasphemy”
A mob of an estimated 3,000 Islamic extremists in Pakistan reportedly called for the beheading of a 17-year-old Christian whose phone, after reappearing days after he lost it, contained blasphemous content that authorities could use to sentence him to life in prison or death.
The case is the latest in a series of incidents each year involving a member of a religious minority group accused of engaging in the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for Islam in the Muslim-majority country.
On Monday, the accused blasphemer Patras Masih claims “an unknown person added blasphemous content to his FB [Facebook],” the British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA) reports.

7. Germany: Mia’s Killer Is 20 Years Old
SOURCE article in German.
Excerpt of English Translation:
Feb. 21., 2018 Kandel –. On December 27., Abdul D. ambushed his ex-girlfriend Mia in a supermarket in Kandel (Rhineland-Palatinate) and killed her with a knife stab in her heart.
The killer is an asylum seeker from Afghanistan, and he stated that he was 15 years old. Now an age expert evaluation shows: it was a lie! (no way! E.N.) He was “at least” 17 1/2 years old, more likely 20.
There were early doubts about the Afghan’s age. Photos suggested that he could not possibly be 15 years old.
The background: When Abdul D. came to Germany in April 2016, he stated that he was 14 years old. As he did not state an exact date of birth, the Youth Welfare Office in charge in Frankfurt/Main assigned him January 1, 2002, as birthday.
For this reason, he and Mia went to the same school. His age was neither verified when he entered the country, nor later – a deadly mistake.
8. Food bank in Essen bars new migrant clients “to ensure reasonable integration”
A food bank in Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia has temporarily stopped accepting non-German new registrants.
Tafel Deutschland in Essen, one of the charitable association’s more than 930 nationwide food banks, is currently only accepting new customers with a German ID card.
The food bank which serves free meals to the poor made the decision last December and implemented it in January until further notice.
On the organization’s website, they state the reason behind the decision was that they “felt compelled to ensure reasonable integration,” adding that they had seen an “increase in the number of migrants in recent years” and the proportion of foreign citizens among their customers had risen dramatically.
“We want German grandmothers to continue coming to us,” head of the association in Essen, Jörg Sartor, told the Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (WAZ).
Over the past two years, the elderly people and single mothers visiting the food bank have slowly decreased and been replaced by foreigners, according to Sartor. At the time the decision was made, migrants and refugees made up 75 percent of the food bank’s 6,000 users, he says, whereas in 2015, 35 percent of customers were non-Germans.
