The ‘London Taliban’ Attempting to Impose Sharia Law in Britain – ‘Wear a Headscarf or We Will Kill You’
Other targets of the ‘Talibanesque thugs’, being investigated by police in the Tower Hamlets area of London, include homosexuals.
Stickers have been plastered on public walls stating: ‘Gay free zone. Verily Allah is severe in punishment’.
Posters for H&M which feature women in bikinis and a racy poster for a Bollywood film have been defaced.
It is believed Muslim extremists are behind a spate of attacks being investigated by police, according to the Sunday Times.
An Asian woman who works in a pharmacy in east London was told to dress more modestly and wear a veil or the shop would be boycotted.
When she went to the media to talk about the abuse she suffered, a man later entered the pharmacy and told her: ‘If you keep doing these things, we are going to kill you’.
The 31-year-old, who is not a practising Muslim, said she has since been told to take holiday by the pharmacy owners and now fears she may lose her job.
She said: ‘Why should I wear a hijab (headscarf) or burqa? I haven’t done anything wrong.’
Other incidents reported include the placing of stickers across the white-minority borough which state it is a ‘gay-free zone’ and the daubing of paint on posters for clothing shop H&M featuring women in bikinis.
Ghaffar Hussain, of the anti-extremism think-tank the Quilliam Foundation, told The Sunday Times that the intimidation was the work of ‘Talibanesque thugs’.
He added: ‘This minority think they have the right to impose their fringe interpretation of Islam on others.’
Three men have been charged with religiously-aggravated criminal damage in connection with some of the incidents, which have mirrored crude attempts at censorship in Birmingham.” Read more.
“AJDABIYA, Libya (AP) — Abdel-Moneim Mokhtar was ambushed and killed by Moammar Gadhafi’s troops last week on a dusty road in eastern Libya — the end of a journey that saw him fight as a jihadi in Afghanistan and then return home where he died alongside NATO-backed rebels trying to oust the longtime authoritarian leader.
In describing Mokhtar’s death on Friday, Gadhafi’s government said he was a member of al-Qaida — part of an ongoing attempt to link the rebels to Osama bin Laden’s group. Four years ago, al-Qaida said it had allied itself with the Libyan Islamic Fighters Group — of which Mokhtar was a top military commander.” Read more.
U.S. Intervention In Libya Aids the Jihad - By Robert Spencer – “Barack Obama has committed American lives to building an Islamic state in Libya. In making their case for U.S. intervention in Libya, conservatives who support the action generally acknowledge that the biggest problem with it is what may come after Gaddafi. However, they then dismiss this concern by minimizing the presence of jihadists and Islamic supremacists among the Libyan rebels, and pointing to a U.S. intelligence study that purportedly shows that there is no significant presence of jihadists among the rebels. Unfortunately, that’s not really true.” Read more.
Documents given to members of Congress and obtained by Fox News show that Algeria’s largest minority group, the Kabyles, who number up to 10 million, will demand on Wednesday that their government hold a referendum on autonomy. This will be followed by planned demonstrations, which some analysts fear could lead to a brutal conflict and possible uprising — if the U.S. doesn’t act to bring the sides together and work on a mutually acceptable agreement.” Read more.
Nuclear Engineer Analyzes Current Condition of Fukushima Reactors 1-3, Unit 4 Pool and Monitoring of Fish
A. Gundersen, Chief Nuclear Engineer: “… What they’re measuring in Unit 2 is not water or steam at all. It’s hot air, or hot hydrogen. And that’s a problem. It tells me that Unit 2 is not being cooled … we should be very concerned that we’re exhausting hot gases out the top of that reactor …
… If we take TEPCO at its word … the iodine deposition on a square meter [Unit 4] was 30,000 MBq. That’s pushing the numbers at Chernobyl … If we take TEPCO at its word, they had Chernobyl-level releases on the other units which caused the iodine to fall on Unit 4 …
Over the weekend the FDA announced it would not be monitoring fish on the west coast, and I don’t think that’s a good idea … I don’t think we’ll find anything initially, but over the next year as the little fish get eaten by bigger fish get eaten by bigger fish and the plume spreads, we might …”
“International Christian Concern (ICC) has learned that Muslim rioters have killed more than 100 Christians and burned down more than 40 churches in an attack that began yesterday in response to the election of Jonathan Goodluck, a Christian, as president of Nigeria. The rioters even destroyed the homes of many Muslims who supported President Jonathan Goodluck.
The Muslim attackers allege that the election was rigged and General Muhammadu Buhari, a Muslim presidential candidate, is the rightful winner. Yet, impartial observers have called this election the fairest in decades. According to the Commonwealth observers’ report, ‘The elections for the National Assembly and the Presidency were both credible and creditable and reflected the will of the Nigerian people.’
According to ICC sources, it is difficult to know the full extent of the damage. The casualties could be much higher as the attacks took place over many of the 12 Muslim majority states in northern Nigeria.” Read more.
Stocks Plunge as Ratings Agency Cuts U.S. Outlook to Negative for First Time Since Pearl Harbor 70 Years Ago
“Fears over the U.S. recovery reached a new high as the country was slapped with an unprecedented warning that its debt rating could be downgraded because of an inability to tackle its massive budget deficit.
In a major blow to President Obama and the U.S. economy, leading ratings agency Standard & Poor’s revised its long-term outlook from ‘stable’ to ‘negative’. It is the first time S&P has done this since it was formed in 1941 – the year of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
The ratings giant also said there is a one in three chance that in the next two years it will downgrade the coveted gold-plated AAA rating that the U.S. has enjoyed for the past 70 years.
Stocks continued to tumble around the world today as the impact of the announcement spread. Japan’s Nikkei 225 index slid 1.5 per cent to 9,413.99; Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index was down 1.4 per cent to 23,502.29 and South Korea’s Kospi gave up 0.4 per cent to 2,129.42.” Read more.
They are looking at seismic and volcanic activity in Nevada. What is the possibility of ‘the big one’ hitting Nevada? Or a volcano popping-up in Nevada?
The images from the movie ‘Volcano’ are extreme. But, could we see the explosions or lava flow like in this film happen in Nevada? Seismologist Graham Kent says a movie-like eruption is not likely. ‘The type of lava that comes out of Aurora crater is much more like the Hawaiian. It is not the explosive kind.’
Kent is talking about the Aurora Volcanic Field located just miles from the area where hundreds of quakes began rumbling a week ago. The center of those quakes, just eight miles from Hawthorne, Nev.” Read more.

By MATT BRADLEY – “CAIRO—Iran and Egypt’s new government signaled Monday they were moving quickly to thaw decades of frosty relations, worrying the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia that the overtures could upset the Mideast’s fragile balance of power.
Iran said it appointed an ambassador to Egypt for the first time since the two sides froze diplomatic relations more than three decades ago, the website of the Iranian government’s official English-language channel, Press TV, reported late Monday.
Also Monday, officials at Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that new foreign minister Nabil Elaraby is considering a visit to the Gaza Strip—an area controlled by Hamas, a militant Palestinian Islamist group backed by Tehran and until now shunned by Cairo.
The announcements follow a rare meeting earlier this month between a high-level Iranian diplomat and Mr. Elaraby, after which the foreign minister told reporters that Egypt has ‘opened a new page’ with Iran.” Read more.
