Italy: Muslim Husband Arrested After Beating Wife, Threatening Her With Death

In a way she’s actually very fortunate. She is still alive — and willing — to seek help. Too many others no longer have that luxury

Hadith, Abu Dawud, 2142, “The Prophet [Mohammed] … said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.”

“I can beat you, this I know, for Mohammed tells me so …”

ANSA – “Police said Tuesday they arrested an Egyptian man in Florence after his wife, who had been beaten by him, begged hospital staff for help.

Police say the woman, who has a six-month-old baby and a two-year-old child with her husband, pretended to be ill to get to a hospital where she pleaded with emergency room doctors for assistance.

She said her husband had been abusing her for three years and even threatened her with death after he had imposed what he called the rules of Islam on their household.

Family of the woman, who is 30, said the 33-year-old husband strictly controlled her, refusing her permission to leave the house and barring visitors unless he was present. The breaking point came last month, the woman said, when he beat her and threatened her with a kitchen knife.

The woman’s family says he also abused them, beating and slapping her mother and demanding money to buy a house.

Abuse of women has become a major social concern in Italy, with the government recently passing legislation to try to help end what is termed “femicide”.” Source – ANSA.

Libya: The Land Of Lawlessness And Ruin

What else can be expected when the “man of lawlessness” makes a stand? …

Matthew 13:41-42, “The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.”

Ezekiel 30:3-5, “For the day is near, Even the day of the LORD is near; It will be a day of clouds, A time of doom for the nations. A sword will come upon Egypt, And anguish will be in Ethiopia; When the slain fall in Egypt, They take away her wealth, And her foundations are torn down. Ethiopia, Put, Lud, all Arabia, Libya and the people of the land that is in league will fall with them by the sword.”

By PATRICK COCKBURN, The Independent – “A little under two years ago, Philip Hammond, the Defence Secretary, urged British businessmen to begin ‘packing their suitcases’ and to fly to Libya to share in the reconstruction of the country and exploit an anticipated boom in natural resources.

Yet now Libya has almost entirely stopped producing oil as the government loses control of much of the country to militia fighters.

Mutinying security men have taken over oil ports on the Mediterranean and are seeking to sell crude oil on the black market. Ali Zeidan, Libya’s Prime Minister, has threatened to ‘bomb from the air and the sea’ any oil tanker trying to pick up the illicit oil from the oil terminal guards, who are mostly former rebels who overthrew Muammar Gaddafi and have been on strike over low pay and alleged government corruption since July.

As world attention focused on the coup in Egypt and the poison gas attack in Syria over the past two months, Libya has plunged unnoticed into its worst political and economic crisis since the defeat of Gaddafi two years ago. Government authority is disintegrating in all parts of the country putting in doubt claims by American, British and French politicians that Nato’s military action in Libya in 2011 was an outstanding example of a successful foreign military intervention which should be repeated in Syria.

In an escalating crisis little regarded hitherto outside the oil markets, output of Libya’s prized high-quality crude oil has plunged from 1.4 million barrels a day earlier this year to just 160,000 barrels a day now. Despite threats to use military force to retake the oil ports, the government in Tripoli has been unable to move effectively against striking guards and mutinous military units that are linked to secessionist forces in the east of the country.

Libyans are increasingly at the mercy of militias which act outside the law. Popular protests against militiamen have been met with gunfire; 31 demonstrators were shot dead and many others wounded as they protested outside the barracks of ‘the Libyan Shield Brigade’ in the eastern capital Benghazi in June.

Though the Nato intervention against Gaddafi was justified as a humanitarian response to the threat that Gaddafi’s tanks would slaughter dissidents in Benghazi, the international community has ignored the escalating violence. The foreign media, which once filled the hotels of Benghazi and Tripoli, have likewise paid little attention to the near collapse of the central government.

The strikers in the eastern region Cyrenaica, which contains most of Libya’s oil, are part of a broader movement seeking more autonomy and blaming the government for spending oil revenues in the west of the country. Foreigners have mostly fled Benghazi since the American ambassador, Chris Stevens, was murdered in the US consulate by jihadi militiamen last September. Violence has worsened since then with Libya’s military prosecutor Colonel Yussef Ali al-Asseifar, in charge of investigating assassinations of politicians, soldiers and journalists, himself assassinated by a bomb in his car on 29 August.” Read more.

Egypt: Judicial Panel OKs Dissolusion Of Muslim Brotherhood, 11 Members Sentenced To Life In Prison

Although the Muslim Brotherhood has appeared to have suffered a mortal head wound in Egypt, it is far from dead. We may even be witnessing a microcosm of a much larger Beast that continues to rejuvenate in the wake of the “Arab Spring” …

Revelation 13:1-3, “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like [the feet of] a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast…”

UPI – “The Investment Department, attached to the State Council’s Administrative Court, Tuesday stopped the broadcasting four news channels in Egypt.

Social Justice Party leader Mahmoud Farghaly Omran sued to get the shutdown of al-Jazeera Mubasher Misr, Yarmuk, al-Qods and Ahrar 25, charging the stations didn’t have current licenses and were airing false reports that confused Egyptians, the Egyptian news agency MENA reported.

Opponents of the Muslim Brotherhood and deposed President Mohamed Morsi have accused al-Jazeera Mubasher Misr, a Qatari channel, of provoking internal tensions and broadcasting material supportive of the Brotherhood and Morsi since he took office last year and after his ouster in July.

Meanwhile, an Egyptian judicial panel recommended the Muslim Brotherhood be dissolved, and regime security forces arrested another leading figure of the Islamist group.

The judicial panel, which advises the government on legal issues, said the Sunni Islamist religious, political and social movement operated outside the law because it formed illegal paramilitary groups and should therefore be dissolved as a non-governmental organization.

The judges, on the State Commissioners Authority, also advised the Brotherhood’s Cairo headquarters be closed.” Read more.

Egyptian Court Sentences 11 Muslim Brotherhood Members To Life In Prison – “An Egyptian military court on Tuesday sentenced 11 Muslim Brotherhood members to life in prison for violence targeting the army in the port city of Suez last month. Forty-five other Brotherhood members were handed five-year jail terms, and eight defendants were acquitted.” Read more.

Egypt: Mohammed Morsi To Be Tried For Inciting Murder – “Egypt’s state prosecutor said on Sunday he has referred ousted President Mohammed Morsi for trial on charges of inciting the murder of protesters, the BBC reported. The accusations relate to violence outside the presidential palace in Cairo last December when seven people were killed in clashes. Fourteen other members of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood are to stand trial on the same charges, according to the BBC.” Read more.

The Muslim Brotherhood Is Going Underground — But Will It Come Back Stronger? – “On Friday General Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi called on Egyptians to take to the streets asking for an authorization to fight against what he called the terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood. Although Mr. Al-Sisi was referring to the explosion at a security headquarters in the city of Mansoura north of Cairo, his references to terrorism were not random — and could well become prophetic.” Read more.
