  1. Al Shabaab Says Bra Is Un-islamic, Whip Women

    "...we would like to take this opportunity to advise our brothers not to believe any news reported about us except from our official Media Department." That's funny. Terrorists with a 'Media Department. "
  2. Somali rebels say bra un-Islamic, whip women REUTERS 17 October 2009, 01:24am IST MOGADISHU: Somalia’s hardline Islamist group al Shabaab has publicly whipped women for wearing bras they say violate Islam by constituting a deception, north Mogadishu residents said on Friday. The insurgent group, which seeks to impose a strict form of sharia Islamic law, amputated a foot and a hand each from two young men accused of robbery. They have also banned movies, musical ringtones, dancing at wedding ceremonies and playing or watching soccer. Residents said gunmen had been rounding up any woman seen with a firm bust and then had them publicly whipped by masked men. The women were then told to remove their bras and shake their breasts. “Al shabaab forced us to wear their type of veil and now they order us to shake our breasts,†a resident, Halima said adding that her daughters were whipped. “They first banned the former veil and introduced a hard fabric which stands stiffly on women’s chests. They are now saying that breasts should be firm naturally, or just flat.†:sl:

  5. 5 Revolutionary Guard Commanders Killed in Iran Bomb Sunday, October 18, 2009 Associated Press Deputy commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's ground force, Gen. Noor Ali Shooshtari is seen. A homicide bomber killed five senior commanders of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard and at least 37 others in an area of southeastern Iran that has been the focus of a growing Sunni insurgency. The official IRNA news agency said the dead included the deputy commander of the Guard's ground force, Gen. Noor Ali Shooshtari, as well as a chief provincial Guard commander for the area, Rajab Ali Mohammadzadeh. The other dead were Guard members or local tribal leaders. More than two dozen others were wounded, state radio reported. The headquarters of Iran's armed forces blamed the bombing on "terrorists" backed by "the Great Satan America and its ally Britain," Fars News Agency was quoted by Reuters. "Not in the distant future we will take revenge," Iran's statement read, according to Reuters. Iran's forces claim the country "will clear this region from terrorists and criminals." "The global arrogance, with the provocation of its local mercenaries, targeted the meeting of the Guard with local tribal leaders," said the Guard statement read out on state TV. The United States, however, condemned the attacks on Sunday and denied any involvement. "We condemn this act of terrorism and mourn the loss of innocent lives. Reports of alleged U.S. involvement are completely false," U.S. State Department spokesman Ian Kelly said in a brief statement. The Revoutionary Guard commanders were inside a car on their way to a meeting with local tribal leaders in the Pishin district near Iran's border with Pakistan when an attacker with explosives blew himself up, IRNA said. Iran's state-owned English language TV channel, Press TV, said there were two simultaneous explosions: one at the meeting and another targeting an additional convoy of Guards on their way to the gathering. The region's top prosecutor was quoted by the semi-official ISNA news agency as saying the Sunni rebel group Jundallah claimed responsibility for the blast. There was no immediate statement directly from the group. The group accuses Iran's Shiite-dominated government of persecution and has carried out attacks against the Revolutionary Guard and Shiite targets in the southeast. That campaign is one of several ethnic and religious small-scale insurgencies in Iran that have fueled sporadic and sometimes deadly attacks in recent years — though none have amounted to a serious threat to the government. The Guard commanders targeted Sunday were heading to a meeting with local tribal leaders to promote unity between the Shiite and Sunni Muslim communities. In April, Iran increased security in Sistan-Baluchistan Province, at the center of the tension, by placing it under the command of the Guard, which took over from local police forces. The 120,000-strong Revolutionary Guard controls Iran's missile program and has its own ground, naval and air units. Iran's parliamentary speaker, Ali Larijani, condemned the assassination of the Guard commanders, saying the bombing was aimed at disrupting security in southeastern Iran. "We express our condolences for their martyrdom. ... The intention of the terrorists was definitely to disrupt security in Sistan-Baluchistan The Associated Press contributed to this report.
  6. Hugo Chávez seizes golf clubs in drive to defeat ‘bourgeoisie’ (David Rochkind/Polaris) Golf has been derided by the Venezuelan leader as elitist but the clubs provide jobs For decades, wealthy Venezuelans have luxuriated in the vistas of the Caribbean from the terrace of the Caraballeda Golf Club, relaxing with a whisky before teeing off amid tropical palms, above a marina filled with gleaming yachts. It is a way of life that is under threat, however, with President Chávez deriding the game as lazy, bourgeois and the antithesis of his Bolivarian Revolution. Thick with Louis Vuitton handbags and luxury vehicles, Caraballeda, north of Caracas, is a symbol of everything Mr Chávez detests. He launched his attack on the sport on his weekly TV show, Hello Mr President, branding players selfish elitists who annexed acres of prime land while the poor suffered in slums. “Golf is a bourgeois sport,†he spat, citing the use of golf carts as evidence of the laziness of the “little Yankeesâ€. Officials have moved to seize two of Venezuela’s prime courses, at Caraballeda and Maracay. However, the move has divided local supporters of the President, with many warning of a detrimental impact on surrounding communities. Related Links Gian Carlos Pérez, the manager of the Caraballeda course, said the club had the support of the area’s communal councils — set up by Mr Chávez. “They agree it should not be expropriated because it is a very important source of work and supports tourism,†he told The Times. The expropriations would bring to nine the number of courses closed in the past three years — part of a drive to eradicate activities deemed contrary to the principles of Mr Chávez’s socialist revolution. Hotels and yacht and beach clubs have also been threatened with closure, while whisky drinking has been hit with increased taxes and limits on consumption at state functions. After hosting a summit recently at the Hilton on Margarita Island, the President decided to seize the hotel — with its golf course, casino and marina — because the owners dared to “impose conditions†on its use by the revolutionary Government. “No way,†he said. “So now it has been expropriated.†To many impoverished Venezuelans, the campaign against golf is a welcome assault on the legacies of elitism and American domination that accompanied the discovery of oil in the 1920s. To others, it is an example of the economic damage that Mr Chávez has wreaked as he pursues his revolutionary ideology. Alejandro Calles, who has worked as a caddy at Caraballeda for almost 50 years, said the seizure would hurt the communities Mr Chávez professed to want to help. “It would be like cutting the arm off the people,†he said. Nahhhh !! He's not crazy.[using large font size is not allowed] :sl: :sl: :no:
  7. Death Of Baby Peter Connelly

    Great case for the death penalty.
  8. "...The benefits of Islam helped create civilisation (and by that I imagine you mean Western civilisation) if you chose to study history..." And the Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Mayan just stood around with their hands in their pockets ? Not to mention that little thing called 'The Industrial Revolution'. Remember ? Those upstart young Americans ? You know, those guys who cured most of the diseases the rest of the world died from all those years and invented just about every modern convenience and piece of technology the world takes for granted. I could go on and on, but why ....?
  9. Could Yemen Be The Next Surprise Of The Season?

    Where did I 'fault' anyone for anything ? I only stated a fact that Yemen is a place with many who are illiterate, predisposing them to fall for the fascist schpiel. These are the people the fascists target.
  10. Could Yemen Be The Next Surprise Of The Season?

    There is no 'surprise' about Yemen. It's a backwards, mostly illiterate 8th century dustbowl full of tribal animosity. Just the type of place fascism is likely to take hold.
  11. Please Do Not Take The H1n1/swine Flu Vaccine!

    That would be great ! But somehow even that would be twisted into some type of anti-American 'they used reverse psychology on us' conspiracy. They never end.
  12. This Is Disturbing And Disgusting

    They wouldn't have to 'investigate' anything. This claim is patently and obviously false. Old time Blood libel. Like I mentioned earlier, it would be like denouncing 'The Protocols...' Some things are just ridiculous right on its face. But this is neither here nor there. The crux of this is that it's another made up conspiracy story. One of many the people of the Middle East seem to revel in. Why do these people take to each and every wacky conspiracy, the more twisted and ridiculous the better ?
  13. This Is Disturbing And Disgusting

    pick a country, any country. type it into your search engine, add 'denounces' and hit 'go'.
