France: Butcher Terrorized And Driven Out By Muslims Because He Sold Pork

Maybe the Anti-Crest found pork in his toothpaste

At least one of the signs is right

At least one of the signs is correct

By Claire Staes, Le Mensuel de Rennes via Islam verses Europe – “Intimidations, proselytism, drug trafficking… For several months, shopkeepers and locals in the Italie shopping centre, in Rennes, have been complaining about pressures and they talk about a deteriorating climate. In the crosshairs: a handful of troublemakers.

In the Italie shopping centre, in the Blosne district of Rennes, the butcher-processor has finally closed its doors at the end of April. ‘Worn out by the pressure,’ the shopkeeper sold his premises. At the beginning of June, in renovated premises, a halal butcher will move in, the second in this site which has fifteen shops.

In eleven years of operation, the butcher has had his window smashed a dozen times. Why? ‘Because I had the misfortune to sell pork!’, assures Jérôme. A few years ago, a message of about fifty centimetres was engraved by knife on to a wooden door in the back of his shop: ‘Death to the pigs, we will bleed you.’

‘As in previous cases, I filed a complaint at the police station. As in the previous cases, the police refused to come here to take note of it. I am bitter.’ According to the man in his forties, the intimidations even went as far as physical threats. ‘Three years ago, one evening, a dozen thugs came into my shop. They told me that if I cooked galettes-saucisses [tn: sausage pastries, a delicacy associated with Rennes] outside, as has been the tradition since forever, it would end very badly. Right away, I stopped making galettes-saucisses on Friday, a day of prayer for Muslims. I made them on Saturday in the early morning, when the troublemakers in this district are still asleep.’

Shocked by what they consider ‘racist’ acts, the inhabitants have circulated a petition to denounce these actions and show their solidarity with the butcher. Several hundred signatures were collected. ‘Nothing changed,’ Jérôme admits publicly. ‘I tried to resist, but I’ve given up. Today, I’m abandoning the ship. However, my business is doing well.’

In the district, the butcher’s misfortunes are known to everyone. All the more so as they do not appear to be isolated. Abdalah, owner of the neighbouring halal grocer’s shop, set up in the Italie only a few months ago. The young men recounts how, several times, people demanded that he stop selling alcohol. ‘I changed the place of my bottles, but I held firm. It passed. Today, there’s no hostility.’ A chemist who has been here for nine years, Anne explains: ‘There is no crime problem here. It’s quite calm. But there is a problem of intolerance, something we didn’t see before.'” Source – Islam verses Europe.

Flashback: France: Two Muslim Men Attack 23-Year-Old Man … For Eating A Ham Sandwich – “A few years ago, Muslim cabbies at the Minneapolis airport began to refuse to carry passengers who were carrying alcohol. It became a big controversy, as some counter-jihad activists began asking whether the cab drivers would soon begin enforcing other Sharia rules upon their non-Muslim customers. Would they, for example, refuse to carry a passenger who had a ham sandwich? Such concerns were dismissed at the time as hysterical exaggerations of what was presented as a completely innocuous attempt by the cab drivers to exercise their religious freedom. But now, with this incident, we see the next step that we predicted all those years ago: the violent enforcement of Sharia provisions on non-Muslims — in what still is, for the moment, a non-Muslim country.” Read more.

Tennessee: Imam Calls Jews And Christians Filthy, Says Muslims Can Take Their Lives And Property In Jihad

Wake up America, this is type of hate that is being spewed “for peaceful purposes” in mosques all throughout the nation. Tip of the hat to Jihad Watch for the link...

Flashback: Survey: 74% Increase in US Mosques During Past Decade, 80% Of Them Teach Jihad Violence And Islamic Supremacism – “A survey conducted by a coalition of religious organizations shows that the number of mosques in the United States has grown by 74 percent in the past 11 years – up from 1,209 in 2001 to 2,106 in 2011… Then there was the Center for Religious Freedom’s 2005 study, and the Mapping Sharia Project’s 2008 study. Each independently showed that upwards of 80% of mosques in America were preaching hatred of Jews and Christians and the necessity ultimately to impose Islamic rule. And now comes yet more confirmation that mosques in the U.S. are teaching these things, and again the percentage is remarkably similar: around 80% of mosques are found to be teaching jihad warfare and Islamic supremacism.” Read more.

Flashback: Video: Imam In Virginia Tells Muslims That If They Are Called ‘Terrorists’ They Should ‘Make This Title Worth It’ – “First of all, the mosque where this Imam – Sheikh Shaker – gave this speech from the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in Virginia. To say this mosque has a checkered history would be a bit of an understatement. Despite that history, Shaker tells the audience that because Muslims are viewed as ‘terrorists’, they should wear the label proudly by giving those who label them as such a ‘run for their money’. He also decries moderate Islam while calling for more fundamentalists.” Read more.

Christian Properties Desecrated, Churches Demolished: Christianity In Peril In Turkish Cyprus

06/30/2013 2 comments

Just one of the many reasons why Turkey was added to the list of worst religious freedom offenders in the world …

By Michael Curtis, American Thinker – “Violence against Christians has become all too frequent in recent years, with attacks on them in a wide variety of countries in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.  Repression and intolerance have been displayed against the Christian community in Nigeria; against the Coptic Christians in Alexandria, Egypt ; by bombing in a chapel in Sulu, Philippines; by bomb arracks against Assyrian Christians in Iraq; by discrimination against them in the Islamic Republic of Iraq; by prosecution under the blasphemy laws in Pakistan and elsewhere.

It was the interruption and disruption by force of the celebration of Christian Mass in the villages of Rizokarpaso and Ayia Triada in northern Cyprus that led the European Parliament in a resolution on January 19, 2011 to comment on the situation of Christians in the context of freedom of religion.  Since the ‘Arab Spring,’ thousands of Christians have fled the countries of the Middle East except Israel.  Christian communities have existed for two thousand years in the Middle East, though they are now declining as a result of low birth rates and emigration caused by discrimination and persecution in most of the Arab and Muslim countries in the area.  The case of northern Cyprus is a recent example of that discrimination and intolerance towards a Christian community.

The disruption of the Christian liturgy in the two villages was, as admitted by the World Council of Churches at the time, a flagrant violation of fundamental freedoms and human rights, the freedom of religion and belief, as guaranteed in Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and in other international declarations, including the 1981 United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of all Forms of Intolerance and Discrimination based on Religion and Belief.

The area of Cyprus had been ruled administratively as a protectorate by Britain from 1878 until August 1960, when it become an independent country.  An international treaty guaranteed the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Cyprus.  But political crises and violence between the Greek and Turkish communities continued.  As a result, the U.N. Security Council set up in March 1964 the U.N. Peacekeeping Force (UNFICYP), originally to prevent further fighting between the two communities.  In the absence of a political solution of the Cyprus problem, the force, now consisting of 925 uniformed personnel, and 140 international and local staff, has remained in existence to supervise ceasefire lines, maintain a buffer zone between the two sides, and undertake humanitarian activities.

Despite the presence of UNFICYP in 1974, the Turkish army invaded the island, ostensibly to restore ‘constitutional order,’ after the Greek military had attempted a coup to unite Cyprus with Greece.  Though there was a de facto ceasefire in August 1974, the Turkish aggression remained.  The Turks never withdrew and occupied about a third of the island.  In November 1983, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus was established under the leadership of Rauf Denktash, who remained president until 2005.  It had a population of 180,000, of whom about 100,000 came as colonialists from Anatolia, the Turkish mainland.  The U.N. condemned the Republic as ‘legally invalid’ and called on states not to recognize it.  None has done so except Turkey.  The town of Nicosia is still divided, with a ‘Green Line,’ into two parts, each being the capital of one of the two regimes.  It is the only divided capital in the world.

With the establishment of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, the 200,000 Greek Christian Cypriots in the north escaped or were Read more…

Pakistan: One Year Later, Taliban ‘Ban’ Leaves Over 150,000 Children At Risk From Polio

06/30/2013 Leave a comment

For peaceful purposes …

Matthew 24:7, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines, plagues, and earthquakes in various places” (HNV).

By Zulfiqar Ali, The Express Tribune – “On June 15, 2012, Taliban commander Hafiz Gul Bahadur ‘banned’ anti-polio drives in North Waziristan. Following his decision, the Mullah Nazir Group also banned anti-polio vaccination in South Waziristan on June 25, 2012. One year on, more than 150,000 tribal children below the age of five have been deprived of immunisation against the preventable disease.

At present, no meaningful negotiations on the topic are being conducted with the Taliban either via tribal jirgas or government channels.

Earlier, the political administrations of both North and South Waziristan initiated a dialogue with the Taliban to restart the anti-polio drives through a jirga, but failed to convince them to allow the resumption of vaccinations. The jirga itself is under the influence of the Taliban, and lacks the moral backbone to stand against their position. The North Waziristan Grand Jirga, for example, endorsed Bahadur’s ban on polio vaccines on July 17, 2012.

While commenting on this endorsement, Khadim Hussain, an expert on the war on terror, told The Express Tribune the jirga cannot speak its mind and make independent decisions. ‘It (the jirga) does not represent collective interest because it is under the influence of Taliban commanders.’

On December 17, 2012, on instructions issued by the FATA Secretariat, the North and South Waziristan political administrations issued conditions which required tribesmen to hold valid documents to get their children vaccinated. But, due to strong resistance from the tribesmen, the political administrations lifted these conditions.

Ihsan Dawar, a journalist from North Waziristan, said the political administration issued these conditions without a viable anti-polio campaign. He added placing these conditions was also a disadvantage for the political administrations.

Despite the ‘ban’ on polio vaccinations, the government set up immunisation centres in Agency Headquarters Hospital Miranshah, Mir Ali Hospital in North Waziristan and Agency Headquarters Hospital Wana, South Waziristan. However, residents, in fear of Taliban retribution, do not dare to take their children to these vaccination centres.” Read more.

Flashback: Muslim Cleric Says Polio Vaccination ‘Un-Islamic, Warns Of jihad Against Doctors – “A cleric in Pakistan’s Punjab province has warned that a jihad would be launched against polio vaccination teams at a time when the World Health Organisation has expressed concern at the emergence of new cases of the disease across the country. Maulvi Ibrahim Chisti of Muzaffargarh district declared the anti-polio campaign as “un-Islamic” and announced at the local mosque that jihad (holy war) should be carried out against the polio vaccination team.” Read more.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “Because of ‘Sharia lawlessness’ the ‘Religion of Peace’ is typified by widespread destruction and disparity, and any number of recent headlines bear this out all too well. In Sudan, for example, slavery is explicitly permitted and tens of thousands of Christians are held in bondage, taken as slaves and face starvation because of Sharia laws instituted by an Islamist government. In Mali, 4.6 million people are threatened with starvation following Islamist advances in the north. Starvation threatens more than 7 million citizens in Afghanistan as over 90% of the country’s agriculture is destroyed by drought. In Somalia, Islamist militants deprive 1.3 million people of food, clean water and health care after banning humanitarian aid. In Chad, children starve to death as Islamic ‘doctors’ with ‘healing gifts from Allah’ throw common sense to the wind. Islamists are killing aid workers in Pakistan for trying to save lives with ‘un-Islamic’ polio vaccines… The fruit of Islamic law produces the type of conditions that precipitate and perpetuate all sort of pestilences, all manner of plagues, any number of conflicts and hardships both inside and outside the Islamic world.” Read more.

Iran: Female Swimmer’s Time Goes Unrecorded Because Her Head-To-Toe Bathing Suit Was ‘Too Revealing’

06/30/2013 1 comment

In the logical Islamic Republic of Iran, women’s hair releases mind-controlling sex rays. Women’s clothing causes earthquakes. And, who knows, maybe women’s nail polish is somehow responsible for their lack of rainConsidering how hot and bothered the Iranian authorities are over what women wear and how they look, perhaps we’ve finally stumbled upon the real cause of global warming 

France 24 – “An Iranian woman has taken on a difficult challenge: to swim as long as possible in open waters, where she has to wear a diving suit, a full jacket, and a headscarf. However, this was still not enough for the sports authorities, who she claims told her they could not record her latest swim because her outfit was too revealing.

 In Iran, women swimmers usually compete in all-female pools, and only at the national level, not abroad, to avoid being seen by men. Professional swimmer Elham Sadat Asghari, however, prefers swimming in the sea, and has repeatedly asked the authorities to certify her attempts at breaking her own records, which they did just once, in 2008.
She told Iranian media that on June 11, she swam 20 kilometres in the Caspian Sea, near the northern city of Noshahr. However, she explained that representatives from Iran’s sports ministry tried to knock her distance down by two kilometres, and in the end decided not to officially recognise her feat at all due to the fact that her figure was ‘visible’ when she came out of the water. The sports ministry has not made any statements on this incident, and has not as of yet replied to requests for comment.
In the past week, thousands of Iranians have voiced their support for Asghari on Facebook. In the video below, subtitled in English by her fans, she thanks them for this.” Source – France 24.

A Kingdom Divided: Sunni-Shiite War Spills Over Onto The Streets Of Australia, ‘It’s Very Frightening, What Is Happening’

06/29/2013 5 comments

Prophecy unfolds as the Day of the Lord approaches …

Zechariah 14:13, “And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.”

Daniel 2:41, “Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay.”

By Rachel Olding, The Sydney Morning Herald – “It was not so much a death threat as a declaration of war.

‘You wanna go to war, you f—in’ Shia dogs?’ the phone message says. ‘We’re taking all of you to war, in Sydney and overseas!’

It was 8pm and Jamal Daoud, an aspiring politician from Auburn was having dinner with his wife and children. An outspoken critic of the Free Syrian Army, Daoud is accustomed to abuse but this call was more frightening than most.

‘You wanna kill our brothers and sisters overseas, we’re gonna kill you motherf—ers here,’ the caller says.

‘We know where [you] live. We’re coming past [your] house and shoot at [it], if there are people inside we don’t give a f—. You wanna spill blood, we’re gonna spill blood, you f—in’ dogs!’

After two years and an estimated 100,000 deaths, the civil war in Syria has spilled on to the streets of Sydney. Auburn, Lakemba and Bankstown are the new battle lines.

The Syrian conflict, which pits the Sunni-dominated rebellion against the Alawite regime of President Bashar al-Assad, has split the Middle East in two; the Sunni regimes of Saudi Arabia and Qatar and large Sunni population in Lebanon on one side, Iran, the Lebanese militia Hezbollah and the broader Shiite Muslim population, of which the Alawites are an offshoot, on the other.

In Sydney, it is splitting suburbs along the same sectarian lines.

‘It’s very frightening, what is happening,’ says Daoud, who was targeted after posting a disparaging message about the death of Mustapha al-Majzoub, a Sydney sheikh killed in Syria last year, while conducting humanitarian work his supporters say.” Read more.

Flashback: A Kingdom Divided: Could The Hatred Between Two Warring Islamic Ideologies In Syria Ignite World War 3? – “The crisis in Syria may appear to be no more or less than a civil war in a country many people would struggle to place on a map. But it’s much more than that: it is rapidly becoming a sectarian struggle for power that is bleeding across the Middle East, with the potential to engulf the entire region in a deadly power struggle between two bitterly opposed Muslim ideologies, Sunni and Shia. Already, the war inside Syria has resulted in 93,000 dead and 1.6 million refugees, with millions more displaced internally. And those figures are escalating rapidly amid reports of appalling atrocities on both sides.” Read more.

Previously he was deputy of the Intelligence Ministry and a member of board of trustees of Islamic Revolution Document Center.” Read more.

Pakistan: Christian Woman On Death Row For ‘Blaspheming’ Mohammed Forced To Remain In Prison For At Least 2 More Years

06/29/2013 3 comments

Hebrews 13:3, “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

By Rana Tanveer, The Tribune – “Aasia Bibi, the Christian woman on death row whose blasphemy conviction was decried as unjust by slain former governor Salmaan Taseer, faces a wait of at least another two years behind bars before her appeal is likely to come up before the Lahore High Court.

Bibi, 45, has been jailed since June 19, 2009, when her neighbours in a village near Nankana Sahib accused her of making derogatory remarks about the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). An additional district and sessions judge convicted and sentenced her to death in November 2010, pending confirmation of the decision by the LHC.

The case attracted the attention of then Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer, who visited Bibi in jail and denounced her conviction as well as the blasphemy law. A couple of months later, Taseer – and any hope Aasia Bibi had of a quick release was killed in a hail of bullets fired by his own bodyguard.

Some two-and-a-half years later, Bibi is waiting for a date to be fixed for the hearing of her appeal. The court has a large backlog of cases and is currently hearing appeals filed at the end of 2008 and beginning of 2009. Appeals filed at the end of 2010 are due to come up in 2015…

Aslam Pervez Sahotra, the chairman of the Human Liberation Commission Pakistan, a group that lobbies for greater awareness of human rights, said that he had sent a request to the chief justice of Pakistan that Bibi’s appeal be heard as soon as possible, but had received no response.

He said that Aasia Bibi faced threats from fellow inmates and her jailers at Sheikhupura Jail. She was reported to have been badly beaten by a jail staffer in October 2011. ‘For her safety, and because of the many lacunae in her conviction, her appeal should be heard immediately. We are hopeful she would be acquitted by the High Court,’ he said.” Read more.

Flashback: Pakistan: Christian Mother Accused of ‘Blasphemy’ Tortured in Jail by Warden – “One would think that Aasia Bibi, the young Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy in a Nankana Sahib village in late 2010, had suffered quite enough… we now hear Aasia has been subjected to ‘torture’ within jail, by a female warden who claims she found ‘illicit’ items in her cell. Few details are available on this matter, but it seems other staffers did little to stop the violation of jail rules that occurred. The abuse or manhandling of a detainee is, of course, prohibited. The guilty warden has since been suspended — but even this action seems to have come rather late in the day, and perhaps many people will support what the warden did (just like how many support what Mumtaz Qadri has done). Torture, of course, is endemic in our jails; no one should suffer it — but the string of miseries imposed on Aasia Bibi seem never to end. ” Read more.

Flashback: US Based Christian Editor Receives Death Threats from Pakistan Islamists For Speaking Out For Aasia Bibi – “A Pakistani Christian editor has said he receives hate mails and death threats on a daily basis from Pakistan for carrying reports on the persecution of Christians in the South Asian country. Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti, editor of the Pakistan Christian Post who doubles as founder of Pakistan Christian Congress, Thursday received one such email in whch Aasia Bibi, who is languishing in jail for alleged blasphemy, and former Punjab governor Salman Taseer and minorities affairs minister Shahbaz Bhatti, who were assassinated last year for crusading to end the blasphemy law, were called harami or bastards.” Read more.
