1. Sweden’s self declared “first feminist government” visited Iran in full head scarves
UN Watch spells out the grotesque abuses of women who refuse to wear the compulsory token of religious observance:
In doing so, Sweden’s female leaders ignored the recent appeal by Iranian women’s right activist Masih Alinejad who urged Europeans female politicians “to stand for their own dignity” and to refuse to kowtow to the compulsory Hijab while visiting Iran.
Alinrejad created a Facebook page for Iranian women to resist the law and show their hair as an act of resistance, which now numbers 1 million followers.
The truth is, many women in Iran are now shaving their heads bald to avoid having to wear the head scarf.
2. In a typical display of Islamic multiculturalism, Pakistan bans St. Patrick Day
The Islamabad High Court on Monday imposed a ban on Valentine’s Day celebrations across the country.
The order came during a hearing of a petition arguing that the day is not part of Muslim tradition and should be banned immediately.
According to the court order, Valentine’s Day related festivities have been banned in public places as well as on an official level. Electronic and print media have also been directed to not give coverage to any promotion of the day celebrating love.
3. Two New York men plead guilty in ISIS-related terrorism case
(NOTE: Even unsuccessful Islamic terror is still a data point which connects the religion of Islam with terrorism.)
Two New York residents accused of conspiring to support ISIS and plotting to set off a pressure-cooker bomb in the city have pleaded guilty to all charges, federal prosecutors and New York officials said.
Munther Omar Saleh, 21, of Queens, and Fareed Mumuni, 22, of Staten Island, were charged with "conspiring and attempting to provide material support" to ISIS and with assaulting and conspiring to assault federal officers, the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York said in a statement.
Mumuni also was charged with "attempted murder of federal officers." That charge resulted from an incident in which Mumuni repeatedly stabbed an FBI agent as law enforcement officials carried out a search warrant at his home about two years ago, officials said.
