Polygamy in Toronto

Daimnation!: Polygamy in Toronto:

“Polygamy is happening in Toronto; it’s not common, but it’s happening,’ said Hindy, imam at Salahuddin Islamic Centre.

Hindy, hardly a stranger to controversy, is well known for his friendship with the family of Omar Khadr, the young Canadian detainee at Guantanamo Bay, and his outspoken views on the implementation of Islamic law. In the past five years, Hindy said he has officiated or ‘blessed’ more than 30 polygamous marriages; the most recent was two months ago. Even some imams in the GTA have second wives, he added.

‘This is in our religion and nobody can force us to do anything against our religion,’ he said. ‘If the laws of the country conflict with Islamic law, if one goes against the other, then I am going to follow Islamic law, simple as that.'”

Oh, OK, so he is defending the fulfillment of the religious laws instead of the civil ones, which are universally applied in any modern system. Because they are the ones who sustain the equality of all citizens living under the State, regardless of sex, date of birth, place of birth, religion… I would like to know the opinion some people would have had if this statement was made by a Christian (regardless of his/her denomination) religious man or woman. I bet it would have been in the first page of ALL the newspapers…

Interesante reflexión sobre la poligamia y las leyes que hace este imán extremista canadiense: “Si las leyes del país entran en conflicto con la ley islámica, si una está contra la otra, entonces voy a seguir la ley islámica, es tan sencillo como eso“. Y, por tanto, voy a casar a la gente poligámicamente… Muy bien, abanderando el incumplimiento de la ley civil (que se caracteriza por su universalidad) y el cumplimiento de la ley religiosa… Me gustaría oír lo mismo que se hubiera dicho si esto hubiera sido dicho por un cura o religioso de cualquier denominación cristiana…
Lo sé, soy una ilusa.

Two Jihadis Dead in Philippines Terrorist Attack

Noblesse Oblige writes

In the Philippines 17 soldiers were wounded and two terrorists died in fighting after Moro Islamic Liberation Front (affiliated with Al Qaeda) attacked two outposts in the town of Tipo Tipo on Basilan Island. The military states that Abu Sayyaf fighters were involved as well, and the attack on the outpost was sophisticated, including IED’s planted on the retreat route.

This is just another front in the global war on terror and the attack breaks a ceasefire just a week after the Islamists demanded that troops be removed from the island with the threat of attacks if they were not.

Capsule analysis:

The Southern Philippines Islamist Jihadis can bluster, but as elsewhere they can’t mount effective attacks against prepared military forces. Expect one to two more abortive attacks on military forces before they revert to form. They prefer soft, unprepared targets and will likely revert to terror bombings, kidnappings, and IED attacks in the months ahead if the truce is not re-established.”

Normally, there are NO news in Spain about Islamist terrorism in the Philippines, something which is striking specially considering that is one of the most menaced countries in the world, specially in the Mindanao region, by precisely the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. It is really true what Thanos writes: MILF can’t mount any succesful attack against prepared military forces, with very few cases (i.e. the intent to free the Italian Catholic priest Giancarlo Bossi last year, which ended with several troops beheaded) being succesful and because the troops are severely outnumbered (in this case, there were 50 Marines against 300 terrorists). And this even when, as in this case, the attack was “sophisticated”, that is, with good weapons and well prepared.

De Filipinas nos llegan pocas noticias, así que las que veo las posteo porque es uno de los frentes más duros en la lucha contra el islamismo/terrorismo/fundamentalismo islámico que existen a día de hoy.
Las últimas, posteadas por Thanos, se refieren a que 17 marines filipinos han resultado heridos y 2 terroristas muertos en un ataque de estos últimos a una de los puestos de vigilancia de los primeros por parte del grupo terrorista islámico/islamista por excelencia de las Filipinas, el Moro Islamic Liberation Front (Frente Islámico de Liberación Mora), un afiliado de Al-Qaeda. Fuentes militares han asegurado que el ataque “fue sofisticado, incluyendo IED (Improvised Explosive Devices, esto es, Dispositivos Explosivos de Fabricación Improvisada) colocadas en una ruta de evasión (de los militares)”.
A pesar de eso, como apunta Thanos, el MILF no acaba de ganarles la partida a los militares preparados (con pocas excepciones como la que enlazo arriba, cuando se intentó liberar al cura italiano Giancarlo Bossi, en la que varios marines fueron degollados pero es necesario añadir que había 50 marines enfrentándose a 300 terroristas). Lo que hace temer que vuelvan a atacar con bombas a objetivos menos preparados…

El Gobierno filipino autorizará una modificación de la Constitución para la creación de un Estado islámico.
Nota: Un IED o Dispositivo Explosivo de Fabricación Improvisada es un dispositivo explosivo que se fabrica con lo primero que se tiene a mano, dicho vulgarmente, lo que no quiere decir que no sean peligrosos. Si alguien ha visto “El Equipo A” o, sobre todo, MacGyver, sabrá a lo que me refiero. Es más cada vez lo son más como consecuencia de la sofisticación que se emplea -cada vez mayor- en su fabricación como señala el enlace de Global Security que pongo más arriba:

An IED can be almost anything with any type of material and initiator. It is a “homemade” device that is designed to cause death or injury by using explosives alone or in combination with toxic chemicals, biological toxins, or radiological material. IEDs can be produced in varying sizes, functioning methods, containers, and delivery methods. IEDs can utilize commercial or military explosives, homemade explosives, or military ordnance and ordnance components.

They are unique in nature because the IED builder has had to improvise with the materials at hand. Designed to defeat a specific target or type of target, they generally become more difficult to detect and protect against as they become more sophisticated.

Un IED puede prepararse con cualquier tipo de material o iniciador. Es un dispositivo “casero” que está diseñado para causar muerte o heridas usando explosivos solamente o combinados con materiales químicos o radiactivos o toxinas biológicas. Los IEDs pueden producirse en varios tamaños o con distintos métodos de funcionamiento, contenedores o métodos de desarrollo. Pueden usar explosivos de naturaleza comercial o militar, caseros o componentes militares.

Son únicos porque el constructos del IED ha tenido que improvisar con los materiales que tiene a mano. Diseñados para derrotar a una objetivo específico o tipo de objetivo específico, cada vez son más difíciles de detectar y de protegerse contra ellos porque cada vez son más sofisticados.
Entre otros sitios donde se usan normalmente, tenemos Irak o Afganistán. 

Aussie Muslim clerics on Saudi payroll

Jihad Watch: Shock horror: Aussie Muslim clerics on Saudi payroll

“SIX Australian-based Muslim clerics who are leaders of the Islamic community in the country are on the payroll of the Saudi Government, receiving allowances of up to $2000 a month.
The Australian can reveal for the first time the identity of the clerics – some paid through the Saudi embassy in Canberra, others directly from Riyadh’s Dawah (preaching) Office – who receive between 3500 and 7000 Saudi riyal ($1975) a month.
The payments to the six – who include former Howard government adviser Amin Hady and Melbourne Somali imam Isse Musse – are part of Saudi Arabia’s multi-billion-dollar campaign to transform its hardline image in the West.”

In fact, this is not the worst thing that has come from Saudi Arabia: you have just to see Undercover Mosque or consider the fact that UK corruption researchers were menaced with another 7/7 if they continued investigating Saudi businesses in Great Britain.

De modo que seis de los clérigos islámicos más importantes de Australia están en nómina de Arabia Saudí, como parte de una campaña para transformar la imagen dura del reino saudí en Occidente. Reciben 2000 dólares al mes… No creo que esto sorprenda a nadie, después de ver el reportaje Undercover Mosque o después de saber que Arabia Saudí le chantajeó al Reino Unido con “otro 7/J“, si continuaban sus investigadores husmeando en la corrupción saudí.

Parents of quake victims to be allowed 2nd children – International Herald Tribune

Parents of quake victims to be allowed 2nd children – International Herald Tribune

“As the death toll in southwest China rose to more than 65,000, a provincial planning commission issued what it called a clarification Monday of the country’s one-child policy, saying that a family whose child dies young can obtain a certificate to have another child.

The clarification came from the Chengdu Population and Family Planning Committee in Sichuan Province, The Associated Press reported.

As many as 10,000 of those killed in the May 12 earthquake were children, adding to the tragedy in a country where most families are allowed to have only one.

Many children lost their lives in the scores of schools that collapsed, which has created a simmering controversy for the government, as grieving parents say their children might have lived had the schools been better constructed.”

So what will happen with the parents who aren’t able now to have a new child? What about those who are widows or widowers and had only that dead child?

Marvellous consecuences of the policy of “only one child“, by the Chinese government, in a desperate attempt to reduce the population… alongside with forced abortions of unmarried mothers, with a rare presence in Western MSM.
To know more about Chinese forced abortions policy, read this article:

Stephen Mosher, president of the Population Research Institute (PRI), is one of the few North American academics that can legitimately boast the label of international spy. The one-time Stanford university doctorate candidate and internationally acclaimed population researcher has for years been on a blacklist of international spies by the Chinese government. His crime is his vocal criticism of China’s murderous, anti-human rights forced-abortion, forced-sterilization policy.

(…) Mosher, who is fluent in a common Chinese dialect, related how while living in a Chinese village he had witnessed women, some his personal friends, who became pregnant with an “illegal” second child and who were subsequently forced to have an abortion. Those mothers who refused were arrested and jailed and underwent daily propaganda, or brain-washing sessions, until they agreed to abort their child. Those who remained in prison until they went into labour “were taken to the abortion clinic crying, by force, and they were given a poison shot.”

That “marvellous Chinese legality“… is not humanitarian at all. But nearly no one denounces it. And now, we can see its effects.

Podría titular el post como “las maravillas de la política de un solo hijo”, pero me parece demasiado cruel ser sarcástica cuando se ha producido una catástrofe de estas características. 10.000 niños muertos por el terremoto, sus padres sólo podían tener un hijo, por la política china que intenta controlar la población. Así que ahora, y como algo especial, esas 10.000 familias podrán tener otro hijo. ¿Y qué pasará con aquellos que no puedan tenerlos ya? ¿O con aquellos padres viudos o viudas que sólo tuvieran ese hijo?
