Turkey conducts first coalition air strikes against Islamic State

Turkey has announced that its fighter jets have carried out their first air strikes as part of the US-led coalition against Islamic State in Syria.

A Turkish foreign ministry statement said the jets began attacking IS targets across the border in Syria that were deemed to be threats to Turkey late yesterday.
Turkey agreed last month to take on a more active role in the fight against IS.

Turkish jets used smart bombs to attack IS positions in Syria, without crossing into Syrian air space.
Turkey also granted US jets access to a key air base close to the Syrian border.

The Turkish attacks that began yesterday were the first launched as part of the US-led campaign and came after Turkish and US officials announced that they had reached a technical agreement concerning their cooperation, which calls for Turkey to be fully integrated into the coalition air campaign.

“Our fighter aircraft, together with war planes belonging to the coalition, began as of yesterday evening to jointly carry out air operations against Daesh targets that constitute a threat against the security of our country,” the foreign ministry said, using the Arabic acronym for IS.

“The fight against the terrorist organisation is a priority for Turkey.”
The statement did not give more details on the targets.

IS advance
On Thursday, IS militants seized five villages from rebel groups in northern Syria, as they advanced toward the strategic town of Marea near the Turkish border.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and other groups said IS carried out a suicide bombing on the outskirts of Marea amid fierce fighting in the area.
The IS advance was in the northern Aleppo province, near where Turkey and the US have agreed to establish an IS-free safe zone.

Now migrant smugglers using FACEBOOK to find asylum seekers who want to reach Britain

MIGRANT smugglers are using Facebook to advertise their trade to desperate Syrians and Iraqis to Europe for thousands of pounds

Disguised as a fancy advert for tourist trips with pictures of the Eiffel Tower or the Houses of Parliament, the Facebook pages offer a “safe” passage to thousands of families who are willing to risk their life savings on the hope that they will reach Europe.

Traffickers are now playing on migrants’ fears by offering expensive package deals that guarantee “100 per cent” safety after thousands have died crossing the Mediterranean this year.

One page, titled “Safe Journey from Turkey to Greece” claims its clients will board a 130ft yacht, called the Orient Bosphorus, in the Turkish port Izmir – for the extortionate cost of £2,500.

But migrants are told it is “forbidden” to bring any luggage or wear headscarves in order to disguise themselves as westerners.

They even suggest that their “customers” take laptops and digital cameras to help them look like tourists if they are questioned by authorities.

The site also offers a two-day ride to Austria on the back of a lorry for a staggering £5,500 per person.

Sites offering advice to migrants on how to get into Britain have become increasingly popular, attacking thousands of would-be immigrants.

One, titled Migrating to London, had a shocking 10,276 members.

The site warns members that the routes into the UK have become much more difficult.

It emerged earlier this month that migrant smugglers have doubled their prices for sneaking people into Britain because of the Calais crackdown.

Francois Guennoc, a humanitarian worker in Calais, explained how “getting into a lorry” now costs migrants between £570 and £640 – while just a few months ago it was £350.

He said that smugglers had hiked their prices “because there are so many more police and sniffer dogs” due to a surge in attempts to get across the Channel over the summer.

Canadian “Hate Speech” Proposal Threatens Free Speech

radical islam in canada Capture

by Abigail R. Esman for IPT News

Thirteen years,thirteen honor killings, all in Muslim families, all of them in Canada. But if you should condemn those murders, you might find yourself the subject of investigation and convicted of a crime.

Quebec Human Rights Commissioner Jacques Frémont has proposed a bill “to prevent and combat hate speech and speech inciting violence.”

Jacques Fremont, president of the Quebec Human Rights Commission

If adopted, the law known as Bill 59 would allow Quebec’s Human Rights Commission or members of the public “to initiate a ‘hate speech’ lawsuit against a person who makes a statement considered discriminatory against a group,” Marc Lebuis, director of Point de Bascule, an organization that tracks Islamist activities in Canada, said in a recent interview.

In addition, the bill would grant the commission power to investigate people alleged to have uttered hate speech, said Justice Minister Stephanie Vallée. Those convicted of promoting hate could be fined up to $20,000 and their names would be made public and posted indefinitely to a list available online.

Most view Bill 59 as a response to pressure from Muslim groups, who have filed several complaints of “Islamophobia” and anti-Muslim hate speech in recent years. In many ways, the bill resembles UN Resolution 16/18, an initiative of the 56 Islamic States who comprise the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and which restricts speech that could be considered “discriminatory” or which defames religion and can be considered “incitement to violence.” Only Bill 59 is worse: it pertains to personal, subjective, emotional responses that an individual has to something that he reads, hears, or encounters.

That this proposed statute flies in the face of everything we in the United States as well as in Canada believe to be fundamental to human and civil rights and the sanctity of free speech is not the only challenge the proposed bill presents. But it presents its greatest threat to democracy and the values the West holds sacred.

Ironically, Lebuis says, supporters justify the bill by suggesting it will protectdemocracy against terrorism. They reason that “terrorism is a reaction towards people who criticize their religion,” he explains, “so by banning the criticism of Islam, we would end terrorism.”

Such arguments have been made both by Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard and by Muslim groups such as the Association of Muslims and Arabs for a Secular Quebec (AMAL). “Hate and Islamophobia drive certain people in groups subject to discrimination toward another form of extremism and violence,”said AMAL President Haroun Bouazzi in a recent presentation to the National Assembly during a debate over the bill.

AMAL President, Haroun Bouazzi

But Canada’s federal criminal code already calls for imprisonment (up to two years) for “anyone who incites hatred against any identifiable group,” as the Montreal Gazette points out. Though the proposed bill addresses hate speech against individuals, not groups, it fails even to define what “hate speech” is. As attorney Julius Grey testified, “Nietzsche, Shakespeare and Voltaire could all be found to have incited violence and hatred. Should they have been censored?”

Moreover, because there is no clear definition of “hate speech” and no standard by which it can be measured, the bill leaves the door wide open for prosecution. “It is based on what people feel or could feel,” Lebuis said. “Public interest, the truth, facts or even intentions are no defense.”

That situation is made worse by the fact that conviction is based on the determination of the Human Rights Commission tribunal, overriding federal laws which require a determination of guilt “beyond reasonable doubt.” As columnist Don MacPherson  observes in the Montreal Gazette:

“The federal Criminal Code defines ‘hate propaganda‘ as advocating or promoting genocide, inciting hatred against an identifiable group [that is] likely to lead to a breach of the peace,’ or ‘willfully’ promoting hatred against such a group … And an accused can’t be convicted ‘if the statements were relevant to any subject of public interest, the discussion of which was for the public benefit, and if on reasonable grounds he believed them to be true” (as would be the case, say, with any condemnation of an honor killing).
But Bill 59 makes no such provisions.

Others, including (surprisingly) AMAL’s Bouazzi, have objected to the proposed creation of a permanent, public record of those found guilty of “hate speech” – a gesture that is not only defamatory but could even become dangerous should anyone seek retribution.

Further, “hate speech” is not defined in the bill, so such a conviction has Machiavellian potential: For example, were you, to ascribe honor violence or terrorism to cultural or religious beliefs, you could be subject to prosecution.

This would be the case even if the actual perpetrator claimed to act in the name of culture or religion. And while a terrorist will go to prison for his deeds, should you be found guilty of violating Bill 59, your name, not his, will be indelibly included on that list visible to the world.

As such, the potential for political parties to silence – let alone criminalize – those who oppose them lurks ominously within the reaches of such a law.

Pakistani-Canadian activist Tarek Fatah

Among Muslims, according to Pakistani-Canadian activist Tarek Fatah, opinions seem to be split. “Ironically, some Islamist-promoting organizations and mosques have welcomed Bill 59, notwithstanding the fact they violate it every week when they start their Friday prayers with a ritual invocation that asks, ‘Allah to give Muslims victory over the “kufaar”(Christians, Jews and Hindus),'” he writes in the Toronto Sun.

Others like himself, he says, “everything we can to make sure Quebec’s Bill 59 does not pass.” And if it does pass, he adds, “the first complaint to the QHRC will be against Islamist mosques for spreading hatred against Jews and Christians.

That is a promise.”

Judging from past efforts to legislate such issues in Canada and from the apparent opposition to Bill 59 being voiced in editorials around the country, the measure seems to have little chance of passing. A measure to legalize sharia tribunals, for instance, failed in 2005, though ironically, these tribunals – opposed vehemently by Muslim women, who recognized that such tribunals tend to discriminate against women in cases of marriage, forced marriage, domestic abuse and inheritance – were denounced by many as “Islamophobic.” (One has to wonder what the Quebec HRC tribunal would have to say about that issue: Islamophobia or misogyny? And what of the person accused of “Islamophobia” who in turn declares the term “Islamophobic” offensive and presses charges against his accuser?)

Pierre Trudel, Professor of the Public Law Research Centre of the University of Montreal

Pierre Trudel, a lawyer and professor of law at the University of Montreal, also feels that the bill in its current form stands limited chance of succeeding. But, he added in an interview, “it’s fair to expect that it will be amended to answer the objections of many opponents.” Otherwise, he said, the result will be “a significant chilling effect on speech.”

Ironic, then, that nothing else could better hand a victory to those very terrorists the bill was written to subvert. In the words of Benjamin Franklin (as Silence Dogood), “Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.”

Half a Million Catholics Urge Pope to Reaffirm Traditional Marriage

More than 500,000 Catholics, including many senior clerics, have signed a petition calling on Pope Francis to reaffirm traditional teaching on marriage and the family after months of confusion over his supposed liberal stance on the issue.

The petition, which was started by U.S. conservative group TFP Student Action, calls on the Pope to “clarify the growing confusion among the faithful” at October’s Synod of Bishops and “implores” him to “prevent the very teaching of Jesus Christ from being watered down”.

The group accuses “dissident Catholic pressure groups” of attempting to subvert Church teaching on marriage, saying: “They are bombarding the Holy Father and the Synod Fathers right now with messages of revolt against traditional moral values as they clamor for “change, change, change” inside the Church.”

The petition has been signed by five Cardinals as well as numerous bishops and archbishops from across the world. Other major figures who signed the petition include former US senator Rick Santorum.

In October, bishops from around the world will meet in Rome to discuss the role of the family in the modern world and make recommendations to the Pope about how he should approach issues such as divorced and remarried Catholics.

Pope Francis has been noted for his statements that make him appear to support a liberal line on various social issues, most famously when he said “Who am I to judge?” when asked about a supposed gay lobby within the Vatican.

As Catholic blogger Father Z points out, however, nothing he said changed or violated Church teaching on the issue:

If they “accept the Lord”, and “have goodwill”… pretty clearly meaning, “if they are trying to live a good Christian life”, which involves continency and chastity, then I can’t point a finger at them and say they are evil, etc.  “Who am I to judge?”, depends on what went before in the same sentence.  It does not mean, “Anyone can do anything and we don’t have a right to make a moral judgement.”

Some liberal bishops have also suggested the Church should permit divorced and remarried Catholics to receive Holy Communion under certain circumstances, but such a move is likely to face strong opposition, especially from non-Western bishops.

TFP Student Action director John Ritchie said: “After Ireland and the US Supreme Court both approved same-sex marriage, a strong reaffirmation of Church teaching could save the sacred institution of marriage. The Catholic Church is the centre of history. It is the moral compass of the world. As the Church goes, so goes the world.”

Hungarian police arrest driver of lorry that had 71 dead migrants inside

Four detained after death toll in Austrian motorway tragedy is raised from initial estimate of about 50 victims.

71 migrants were found dead in the truck parked on the Austrian highway leading from the Hungarian border (AP)

Hungarian police have arrested the driver of a lorry found on an Austrian motorway with the decomposing bodies of 71 people, including a baby girl, inside.

Austrian police said of the 71 dead, 59 were men, eight women and four children, and included Syrian refugees.

Three Bulgarians and an Afghan man have been detained, police said. Detectives have also questioned almost 20 people and searched homes, they added. Earlier Austrian police said the lorry owner was a Bulgarian citizen of Lebanese origin.

How Austria has become central to Europe’s migration crisis

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The death toll was raised on Friday from initial estimates of 20 to 50 following the discovery of the remains on Thursday morning on Austria’s A4 motorway between Neusiedl and Parndorf. The truck, which had been abandoned on the hard shoulder of the road near Parndorf, had apparently been there since Wednesday. Austrian police said all those on board appeared to have suffocated and died before they entered the country.

Austrian police said of the 71 dead, 59 were men, eight women and four children, including a baby girl. The girl was between one and two. The three other children were boys, aged between eight and ten.

At a news conference in the town of Eisenstadt, Hans Peter Doskozil, police chief for the province of Burgenland, said one Syrian travel document had been found among the victims but that it was too early to say from which countries the entire group had come.

“We currently have three people under arrest in Hungary… and expect that that this is the trace that will lead us to the perpetrators,” Doskozil told reporters, making clear that the people being held were not ring leaders.

The lorry set off from Budapest in the early hours of Wednesday morning, and reached the Hungarian-Austrian border by 9am. It crossed into Austria that night and was spotted on the A4 at 5am or 6am on Thursday, police said.

The state of the bodies had made establishing an exact death toll difficult. Their identities were also not known, said Hans Peter Doskozil, head of police in the eastern district of Burgenland. “The deaths already occurred some time ago,” he added. “We can make no concrete assumptions about the origin or cause [of death]. We can assume, however, that they are refugees.”

The 7.5-tonne vehicle used to belong to the Slovak chicken meat company Hyza and still has the slogan “Honest chicken” on the side. The company said it sold the lorry in 2014. According to the Hungarian government, it is registered to a Romanian citizen from the central city of Kecskemét.

Road officials said on Thursday that an employee mowing the grass alerted police after noticing putrid liquid dripping from the the white refrigerated vehicle.

Road officials said on Thursday that an employee mowing the grass alerted police after noticing putrid liquid dripping from the back of the white refrigerated vehicle. Its door had been left ajar. Detectives then made the grim discovery.

Forensic teams at the scene examined the lorry, which has Hungarian number plates. Lindsey Hilsum of Channel 4 News tweeted that the “smell of death” at the scene was overwhelming. On Thursday afternoon, police towed the vehicle to a nearby hall and began removing bodies.

In a statement on Thursday, Austria’s interior minister, Johanna Mikl-Leitner, denounced the traffickers as criminals. “This tragedy is a concern for us all. Smugglers are criminals. They have no interest in the welfare of refugees. Only profit.”

The EU has found itself overwhelmed by the sheer scale of migration, with a record number of 107,500 migrants crossing the EU’s border last month. Chaotic attempts by Macedonian police to hold back refugees last week failed. On Wednesday, the UN’s refugee agency said it expected 3,000 people a day to enter Macedonia from Greece until at least the end of the year.

Berlin, backed by Austria, wants a new system of mandatory quotas for refugees across the EU despite the issue being rejected in acrimonious scenes by EU leaders at a summit in June. Germany expects 800,000 asylum applications this year. The EU has also proposed a common “safe countries of origin” list, which would see migrants from these nations swiftly deported.

With the EU’s common border policy increasingly dysfunctional, member states are taking matters into their own hands. Hungary is building a new fence along its border with Serbia, though this week refugees got through with relative ease.Germany’s foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, opposes the initiative, saying: “We are not advocates of fences.”

On Tuesday, meanwhile, Austrian police arrested three drivers on suspicion of transporting migrants from Syria and other war-torn areas into the EU. One of them had driven 34 people packed into the back of a white van across the Austrian border.

The group included 10 small children, whom the driver abandoned by the side of the motorway near the city of Bruck an der Leitha. According to police, the migrants said in interviews they were hardly able to breathe during the trip.

They had asked repeatedly for more air, but the driver had ignored their requests, police added, and had driven without stopping from Serbia to Austria.

Amnesty International’s Europe deputy director, Gauri van Gulik, said countries in the region needed urgently to do more.

“People dying in their dozens – whether crammed into a truck or a ship – en route to seek safety or better lives is a tragic indictment of Europe’s failures to provide alternative routes,” he said. “Europe has to step up and provide protection to more, share responsibility better and show solidarity to other countries and to those most in need.”

Preacher Anjem Choudary to face trial on terror charge

Anjem Choudary, the radical Muslim preacher, is to go on trial in January accused of inviting support for Islamic State.

The 48-year-old is accused of encouraging his followers to support the group, which has conquered swaths of Iraq and Syria and established a radical Islamist regime, in speeches posted online between 29 June last year and 6 March this year.

Choudary, of Ilford, east London, appeared via videolink from Belmarsh prison in court 3 of the Old Bailey on Wednesday morning alongside his co-defendant Mohamed Rahman, of Whitechapel, east London. Both men spoke only to confirm their names.

Mr Justice Saunders set a plea and case management hearing on 11 December, ahead of a provisional trial date of 11 January. The trial will take place somewhere in London, Saunders said. He said he would recommend that it be heard by a high court judge.

“It’s clearly a matter which a jury needs to determine, as far as I can see,” Saunders added.

Despite extensive submissions from Jacob Hallam, for the crown, Blinne Ghrailaigh, for Choudary, and Naeem Mian, for Rahman, decision on the bail application was adjourned for further information to be obtained. A decision is expected by next Friday.

About eight men sat in the public gallery to support them. They defied tradition by refusing to stand for the judge as he left the courtroom.

A statue of the Virgin Mary survived a fire at a military base in Spain last month, according to reports.

During a heatwave in Spain, the fire broke out at the El Goloso military base, near Madrid, on July 30, destroying surrounding vegetation, according to Spanish websites, Infovaticana and Religión en Libertad.

However, once the fire was put out a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes, and the patch of grass it stood on, remained undamaged.

Earlier this month, a photo of the statue was tweeted by Twitter user José María Zavala, writing in Spanish that the picture “gives much to talk about”.

Churches should not be used for Muslim worship!

St John’s Church, Waterloo, South London

Once a place has been used for Muslim worship it is ipso facto a mosque.

A row broke out earlier this year in the Church of England’s diocese of Southwark, occasioned by a vicar giving permission for some Muslims to hold their prayer service in his church. Some Catholics might feel a bit smug about this, but they ought not to, as the vicar in question’s attitude to Muslim worship is rather similar to that of several Catholic priests.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/11468013/Muslim-prayers-in-Church-of-England-parish.html

No Christian church, if it wants to remain a Christian church, and no other church property, even a church hall, should ever be used for Muslim worship.

The reason is a straightforward one: once a place has been used for Muslim worship it is ipso facto a mosque – or so some Muslims tell us. So it is clearly not a good idea to let your church be converted into a mosque, because once it is a mosque, it cannot be converted back, or so it is claimed.

This story – Muslim prayers in Christian buildings – is a remarkably common one, and it keeps on popping up again and again in the media. It is a running saga in Spain, where, it seems, a group of Muslims are keen to reclaim their perceived rights over Cordoba Cathedral.

Cordoba Cathedral

Most of us have heard of the theology of replacement, or supersessionism, which are terms usually used with reference to the Jews and the promises of the Old Testament.

Catholics do not hold to such a theology, and  do not see the Covenant with the Jews as having been cancelled. But Islam has a theology of replacement, as far as I can see: for them it is natural that all churches, like the Haghia Sophia, should become mosques, as they regard Mohamed as the “seal” of the prophets.

Blue Mosque, Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia

http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/hundreds-call-for-hagia-sophia-to-be-converted-into-mosque-in-istanbul-rally.aspx?PageID=238&NID=82906&NewsCatID=341

Therefore church into mosque is a sort of natural progression (the other way around would be regression.) Moreover, in a belief that strikes one as having it both ways, they see the natural state of mankind in the beginning as Islamic: they regard Adam as the first prophet, and see his life in the Garden of Eden as an Islamic one. So if a Christian becomes a Muslim they are at once progressing and at the same time reverting to the original state of humanity.

The vicar who hosted the Muslim prayers in his church and who took part in them, is reported as saying the following: “It is the same God, we share a tradition.”

https://rightpunditry.wordpress.com/2012/12/05/allah-was-the-name-of-the-chief-god-of-the-kaaba-allah-is-not-the-god-of-the-bible/

This is perhaps the most worrying thing of all, and it is something that I have heard on the lips of Catholics too. It is simply not true, and to suggest that it is is misleading, to say the least. Islam’s concept of God and of revelation is radically different to the Catholic concept of either. Moreover, our tradition and their tradition, our culture and theirs, are radically (that is to say from the root up) different.

In art, in literature, in law, in cookery, in domestic life, their path is markedly different from our own. The vicar’s words do no one any favours. Moreover, the vicar seems to have forgotten the central mystery of the Christain faith, the mystery of the Blessed Trinity, a mystery that penetrates all aspects of faith and life, or should.

Christians who take this, or a similar view, on the closeness of Islamic and Christian traditions, know nothing about Islam, but, shockingly, seem to know nothing about their own Christian tradition either.

Manchester girl, 16, pleads guilty to terror charges

A 16-year-old girl has pleaded guilty to two terror charges at Manchester Magistrates’ Court,  including possessing “recipes for explosives” and a bomb-making guide.

She was arrested in April following an investigation by the North West Counter Terrorism Unit.

The inquiry also led to the arrest of a boy, 14, who admitted involvement in a plot to attack police in Australia.

The court heard that phone data retrieved by police showed the pair exchanged more than 2,000 WhatsApp messages a day before being arrested.

No evidence was found that the girl was aware or played any part in the Anzac Day plot or any plan to harm others or incite terrorism in the UK or elsewhere, the court was told.

Anarchist Cookbook

The girl, who cannot be named, admitted two counts of possessing a document containing information of a kind likely to be of use to a person preparing or committing an act of terrorism.

She used her school’s IT system to search for information on Jihadi John, the so-called Islamic State (IS) group and images of Michael Adebolajo, who killed Fusilier Lee Rigby in Woolwich in 2013.

Analysis of her mobile phone found instructions for producing a timed circuit, a document about DIY bomb-making and the Anarchist Cookbook 2000.

The girl also had images of guns, knives and grenades.

Photos of a dead child and an execution were also recovered, the court heard.

The judge warned her that his sentencing options would include “immediate custody”.

She was bailed until sentencing on 15 October.

Her bail conditions include ban on travel outside England and Wales, and on applying for travel documents.

Worker at Bradford mosque in court accused of sexually abusing two young boys

Yasir Muhammed Hafiz

A WORKER at a Bradford mosque is on trial accused of the repeated sexual abuse of two young boys aged nine and 12.

Yasir Muhammed Hafiz denies a total of 16 charges, including nine of sexually assaulting a child under 13 and seven of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

Hafiz, 31, of Daleside Walk, West Bowling, Bradford, is alleged to have hugged and tickled the boys in a sexual manner, kissed one of them, and put their hands on his private parts.

Prosecutor Michael Collins told the jury at Bradford Crown Court yesterday that they will hear recorded police interviews with three boys, the two complainants and a third child.

Bearded Hafiz, who teaches the Koran at the Madrassah Nur Qur’an, on Parkside Road, West Bowling, is assisted in the dock by an interpreter because English is not his first language.

Mr Collins said the alleged offences took place between January 1, 2014, and February 13 this year.

The Madrassah Nur Qur’an on Parkside Road, West Bowling

The nine-year-old says that Hafiz sexually abused him on five separate occasions.

He told his mother he had done “dirty” things to him.

He alleged Hafiz picked him up, hugged him, gripped him under the arms and kissed him on the cheek.

The child said Hafiz put his hand down his trousers on to his boxer shorts and touched his bottom.

He complained that Hafiz molested him on February 13 and did similar things to him four times before that but only kissed him once.

The boy accused Hafiz of taking his hand and making him touch his private parts over his clothing.

“He tried to resist but his knuckles came into contact with his penis,” Mr Collins said.

He said the abuse lasted about 20 seconds until he was disturbed.

The jury heard that the second boy was 12 at the time.

He alleges he too was picked up by Hafiz and hugged and tickled in a sexual manner.

“He pulled up his top and tickled his torso and back,” Mr Collins said.

Hafiz is also accused of putting the child’s hand between his legs.

The court heard that the younger boy told his mother what was happening. She spoke to the second boy’s mum and her son then also alleged he was being abused.

Hafiz told the police he had carried the boys but he denied any sexual misconduct with them.

Mr Collins said the issues for the jury to decide were if Hafiz had touched the children sexually and had he caused either or both of them to touch him indecently.

The nine-year-old boy said on his video that Hafiz had been “very dirty to me.”

The trial continues.

Gay men describe horrors of IS regime

‘They are trying to track down every gay man – it’s like dominoes’

Two men who fled extremist-held territory in Syria have told the United Nations of the horrors of being a gay man under their oppressive regime.

Subhi Nahas and Adnan became the first people in history to address the UN Security Council on the persecution of discussed lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender groups.

Here are their stories.

Subhi Nahas

Gay Syrian refugee Subhi Nahas speaks at a news conference at the United Nations headquarters in New York

Subhi Nahas said he watched in fear as the al Qaeda-linked Al Nusra Front took over his hometown of Idlib and began to torture and executing men suspected of being gay.

Then, as Al Nusra gave way to militants of the so-called Islamic State, came the videos of gay men being hurled from buildings.

If the men survived the fall, they were stoned to death by onlookers, he said.

Subhi became resigned to a similar fate, he told the meeting.

He didn’t feel safe at home either, after his father learned of his sexuality.

I was terrified to go out. Nor was my home safe, as my father, who suspiciously monitored my every move, had learned I was gay.

I bear a scar on my chin as a token of his rage.

– SUBHI NAHAS

Nahas fled Syria to Lebanon, then moved to Turkey, but death threats followed him.

Death threats followed me to Turkey. A former school friend from Idlib named Khalil had joined Islamic State.

He relayed through a mutual friend that he wanted to kill me, aiming to go to paradise.

I was terrified.

– SUBHI NAHAS

Nahas has since settled in the US and works with the Organization for Refuge, Asylum, and Migration to help governments and refugee agencies build their capacity to protect LGBT refugees.

“There’s a community in the Middle East that is now standing up, and we want to push back,” Subhi Nahas said.

“We want our voices to be heard, we want our rights to be acknowledged, and we will prevail in the end.”

Adnan

An Iraqi man identified as Adnan told his story to the Security Council by telephone from a secret location, as he said he still feared for his life.

Adnan said IS were professionals at tracking down gay people through mobile phone and Facebook contacts of people they capture.

The group, he said, force captives to give up friends and lovers “like dominoes”.

In my society, being gay means death and when IS kills gays most people are happy because they think we are evil, and Islamic State gets a good credit for that.

They hunt them down one by one. When they capture people, they go through the person’s phone and contacts and Facebook friends. They are trying to track down every gay man.

And it’s like dominoes. If one goes, the others will be taken down too.

– ADNAN

Adnan said his own family turned against him after learning he was a target for Islamic State.

“My own family turned against me when IS was after me – if IS didn’t get me, members of my family would have done it.”

*Video* Migrants break through newly reinforced security fences at Calais

Newly reinforced security fences appear to have failed to keep out migrants trying to get to the Channel Tunnel as footage shows groups on train tracks

Desperate migrants hoping to reach Britain have stormed the recently reinforced security fence close to the Channel Tunnel in broad daylight as French paratroopers stood by.

UK-bound Eurostar services were slowed to a crawl by the significant number of men who managed to access tracks close to the Channel Tunnel entrance.

Sky reported that migrants had also entered the tunnel, and on one Eurostar train which was slowed down passengers were told delays were due to “trespassers”.

Migrants were seen sitting on the highspeed tracks used by Eurostar, Eurotunnel and freight services at around 1pm.

Migrants sit by the Britain-bound tracks

At least two dozen men managed to breach the new defences heralded in a joint appearance by Home Secretary Theresa May and her French counterpart Bernard Cazeneuve last week.

In recent months French authorities in Calais have been overwhelmed by a deluge of migrants attempting to illegally enter Britain through the Channel rail link.

However, today’s developments are a setback to recent Anglo-French efforts to bring the crisis under control.

Witnesses aboard passing Eurostar services voiced concern for the groups of men who appeared to be waiting for a UK-bound freight train to pass.

Several detachments of French paratroopers were positioned nearby but stood by, apparently reluctant to intervene on the busy rail route.

How sex criminals convicted in the EU are free to come to Britain

  • Only Cyprus, France, Malta, Austria and Ireland have sex offence database.
  • Means convicted rapists can arrive in UK without officials knowing crimes.
  • Campaigners, including Kate McCann, now calling for EU-wide scheme.
  • Comes after case of Eduard Peticky, 48, who trafficked youngsters in Rotherham after being convicted of gang rape in Slovakia. 
Rapist Eduard Peticky, allowed into the UK from Slovakia despite previous sex crime convictions, has been jailed for life after he abused children as young as three

Rapist Eduard Peticky, allowed into the UK from Slovakia despite previous sex crime convictions, has been jailed for life after he abused children as young as three

Rapists and child abusers convicted in EU countries are free to come to Britain because just six member states have sex offender registers.

As well as the UK, only Cyprus, Ireland, Malta, Austria and France keep a database of those who have been convicted of sex crimes.

The UK’s version of the register – which lists the names of more than 46,000 offenders – means police can apply for an order to stop those listed going abroad.

But the same system does not exist in 22 EU countries, meaning convicted rapists are able to arrive in the UK without authorities being aware of their depraved past.

Campaigners are now calling for an EU-wide scheme which allows details of sex offenders to be shared across borders. Kate McCann, the mother of missing Madeleine, is among those fighting for change. Portugal and Spain are already setting up similar schemes.

Labour Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper

Labour Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper told the Daily Mirror: ‘European countries need to work together to protect the public.’

The calls come following the case of Slovakian sex offender Eduard Peticky, 48, who moved to the UK just days after being released from prison for gang rape.

He was jailed earlier this month for a series of heinous sex crimes against young children in Rotherham.

Jailing him for life, Judge Peter Kelson QC said improvements were needed in providing courts with the previous convictions of EU nationals who are involved in criminal proceedings in the UK.

He said the prosecution and police had ‘acted with the utmost urgency in trying to obtain the relevant information’ but that it had taken 13 months to find out that he was a ‘dangerous repeat offender’.

He added: ‘It is an inevitable consequence of freedom of movement but somehow something must be done to improve the obtaining of criminal records and proof of them for criminal proceedings.’ 

Kate McCann is among campaigners who arecalling for an EU-wide scheme which allows details of sex offenders to be shared across borders

The NSPCC also believes there is ‘gaping hole’ in child protection, adding: ‘UK agencies inform other countries when known sex offenders travel aboard. It should work in reverse.’

Peticky had been jailed in 1988 for more than eight years after raping two women in a park with two accomplices while living in Slovakia.

After being released, he travelled to England in 2008 for a ‘better life’. He was allowed to stay because authorities were unaware of his convictions for rape, sexual abuse and robbery in his home country.

While in the UK, Peticky trafficked a young girl for sex before abusing her himself.  

The youngster, who said that she was five when the incident happened, was so terrified she wet herself and was sick with fear. 

He also sexually abused a boy when the child was aged between three and five years old. 

In September 2013, the victims disclosed what had happened to them to a trusted adult and an investigation began. 

His brother Ludovit Peticky was jailed for 12 years for offences against the same two children and a third victim, who was between 10 and 11.

Ludovit Peticky, Peticky's brother, was also jailed for 12 years for sexual offences against the same two children and a third boy, aged between 10 and 11

Ludovit Peticky, Peticky’s brother, was also jailed for 12 years for sexual offences against the same two children and a third boy, aged between 10 and 11

The offences took place between 2010 and 2012 in the Eastwood area of Rotherham.  

Judge Kelson said Eduard Peticky ‘poses a significant risk to members of the public’ and his case was ‘one of the utmost gravity’. 

According to figures in Slovakia, UK authorities took 121 children away from their citizens in 2014. 

A Home Office spokesman said: ‘Foreign criminals have no place in the United Kingdom and this Government is using all the resources available to protect the British public.

‘In the last five years, we have strengthened the UK’s ability to request and obtain criminal records data from other countries about foreign nationals who are arrested in the UK.

‘Since 2010, checks on foreign nationals going through the UK criminal justice system have increased by more than 1,000 per cent, helping ensure more foreign criminals are taken off our streets and making our communities safer.

‘The Government is also providing leadership in Europe, and across the world, on efforts to improve the proactive sharing of information between countries about foreign offenders.’

British PM urged to learn from Church of Scotland project helping migrants in Malta

Malta – St Andrews Scots Church

British Prime Minister David Cameron has been urged to learn from a Church of Scotland project in Malta which provides interest free loans to migrants and asylum seekers.

David Lloyd, a retired chartered accountant with the Out of Africa Project in Malta, criticised the Prime Minister’s use of the word “swarm” to describe migrants and said instead the UK could look at innovative ways of helping migrants get on their feet financially, The Scotsman newspaper reported.

He explained that the church ran a “bank” – now worth over £100,000 – funded by donations from the Church of Scotland Guild. This, he said, was an example of “people power” helping migrants become financially independent and was breaking down hostility from locals and politicians.

The newspaper said many of the migrants who have settled in Malta have been helped by the Malta Microfinance bank offering interest-free loans for rent, skills training, setting up businesses and schooling.

“There is still hostility and racism here from some people but by taking direct action we’ve let ordinary people in Malta see that migrants are real people just like them.”

The newspaper noted that he project was praised by former Maltese president George Abela as “ground- breaking and pioneering.”

Doug McRoberts, a former BBC Scotland news broadcaster, who set up the project, jointly run with the Methodist Church when he was the minister at St Andrew’s Scots Church in Valletta, said: “I don’t particularly want to get into a fight with David Cameron but I’m happy that thousands of people in Scotland and across the whole of the UK have raised money to help the migrants.

“This is people leading government, who are saying as individuals ‘this is what we want’. It’s ordinary people leading the way. Governments should be a function which assists society towards being itself.
“If the UK government would listen to what the Kirk is doing in Malta it would have a more rational and humanitarian approach.”

ISIS AIDS-BOMBS: 16 HIV-Positive Militants Sentenced To Suicide Missions

aids bomb Capture

According to reports inside Syria, 16 Islamic State fighters have contracted AIDS from two Moroccan women — and so have been forced to become suicide bombers.

ARA News reported that the fighters were stationed in the city of Mayadin, located in the eastern Syrian province of Deir al-Zor. Since their condition was discovered, the jihadis have been quarantined in a hospital. The women reportedly fled to Turkey, fearing retribution by the group.

As soon as Islamic State leaders realized that they had the potential for a AIDS outbreak, they forced other members in the area to take blood tests for the infection. The jihadis in question are now awaiting assignment as suicide bombers.

″Most of those infected are foreign militants who had sexual intercourse with two Moroccan women. The women passed on the disease to the militants before their infection was revealed. We were ordered by the group’s local leadership to transfer the infected militants to a quarantine center in the city ,” a local Syrian doctor has been cited as saying. (ARA news reported.)

The doctor said the two women escaped to Turkey fearing they would be executed for giving the disease to IS fighters.

Several months ago, a similar panic arose when an Indonesian fighter was discovered to have infected his own sex slave, who was then sold to members of the group elsewhere in the Middle East. In that case, the jihadis executed the Indonesian, as well as the doctor who made the infection known.

New revelations involving Islamic State’s sexual violence have emerged in recent weeks. Besides taking sex slaves from territory it holds, including young girls from Iraq’s Yezidi religious sect, the group also allegedly subjected high-profile Western hostages like American Kayla Mueller to repeated rape.

‘Radicalised’ schoolgirl must leave family home – judge – BBC News

A schoolgirl was “radicalised” when her family exposed her to propaganda by the Islamic State group and must be removed from their home, the High Court says.

The 16-year-old’s “deceitful” parents showed her images of beheadings, and material on bomb-making and how jihadists could hide their identity.

The family’s passports have been passed to the Metropolitan Police.

The judge compared the damage done to the girl from east London to that experienced in sex abuse cases.
He said she was one of a number of cases involving young girls from the same area “captured and seduced” by the belief that becoming “jihadi brides [in Syria] is a somewhat radical and honourable path for them and their families”.

‘Sophisticated dishonesty’
The court heard how the schoolgirl – who can only be referred to as B – was removed from a flight to Turkey last December and made a ward of court.

Her parents promised to stop her and her siblings accessing online terror-related propaganda but the judge said a police search of the family home last June revealed “a plethora of electronic devices”.

The girl asked to remain in the family home, even if that meant being tagged.
However, the judge said of B: “I can see no way in which her psychological, emotional and intellectual integrity can be protected by her remaining in this household.
“The farrago of sophisticated dishonesty of the parents makes this entirely unsustainable.”

The Latest Arrest of Tommy Robinson

Chief Constable Jon Boutcher
Bedfordshire Police Headquarters
Woburn Road
Kempston
Bedfordshire
MK43 9AX
21 August 2015

Dear Chief Constable Boutcher
I understand Tommy Robinson was arrested a couple of days ago after arriving in the UK after a family holiday. As temporary Chief Constable one can only assume the order for his arrest came directly from you, or at least via you from a senior Conservative such as Home Secretary Theresa May or Secretary of State for Justice Michael Gove.

Might one ask just why Mr Robinson was arrested? To an outside observer this seems like the concerted political / police persecution of a man whose main crime in these peculiar times we live in is to speak publicly about the very real threat of fundamentalist Islam.

I can find no record of you personally speaking out about the Pakistani Muslim gang rape culture which was happening under the noses of the British police for the last couple of decades. Presumably you owe your current high rank to your shameful silence. It is painfully obvious to society at large that policemen who contravene the politically correct ideology of the establishment do not rise very high in the force these days, but even so, this is not really a badge of honour to be worn with pride.
Mr Robinson is simply a man driven to speak out about the dangers of Islam because politicians and senior policemen like you remain silent. This would appear to attract the heavy of the state in much the same way as those who spoke out against the totalitarian system operating in the Soviet Union. Mortgage fraud is a crime ignored when the perpetrators are acting politicians but not when it is Mr Robinson. Why is this? Does it have anything to do with Mr Robinson causing acute embarrassment for the establishment?

Mr Robinson should never have been jailed in the first place, but to allow him to be beaten up by Muslim inmates whilst in prison suggests this was very much a desired outcome and was actively encouraged by senior politicians in conjunction with the prison governor. After his early release under license he was re-arrested in order to stop him speaking at the Oxford Union Debate. This seems very strange to me. Does it not to you? Why should a person jailed for mortgage fraud not be allowed to speak at an event which has nothing to do with mortgage fraud?

It is becoming chillingly clear that Mr Robinson is an enemy of the state and such is the descent of Britain into ever increasing totalitarianism that his manifestly unjust treatment elicits no protest from those whose purported goal in life is to protect the vulnerable against the all-powerful establishment. Where are the human rights lawyers in all of this? Where is Shami Chakrabarti and her supposed ‘Liberty’ movement? Where are the politicians speaking out against this state persecution of a brave and honourable man and where are the bleeding-heart liberal journalists?

As I am sure you are aware, Mr Robinson and his entire family receive very graphic death threats as a matter of routine. Might I ask how many people Bedfordshire Police has arrested in this regard? I have never read about any such arrests, which smacks of more than just double standards, I’m sure you will agree. In fact, arresting Mr Robinson over some trivial if not trumped charge whilst ignoring those who threaten to rape his wife and children before burning them alive, smacks of complicity with the devil.

I find it very disturbing that the British Police can act in this way. I was raised to respect and admire the English Bobby, but I now see you as the Stasi incarnate. Britain is slowly morphing into something very unpleasant indeed and any impartial observer to this saga of Mr Robinson’s persecution would find it very hard to mount a credible defence of your actions and indeed the actions of the Conservative politicians presumably giving you your orders.

I am convinced this sort of totalitarian behaviour could never have happened in our very recent past, but it now seems to be an ever-increasing part of life today. Any country which allows the police to behave in a manner which appears above the law, and any country which fails to hold the police to account because the victim holds the incorrect political opinion, is a country heading toward a very dark place, as we saw with the Stasi and East Germany.

It would be reassuring if you were to reply to this, but I rather doubt you will. Reassuring ‘communities’ is very much part of your diverse remit, but reassuring Englishmen concerned about the politicisation of the British police can probably be safely ignored. As no doubt you will prove with your silence. Nonetheless, how long do you think you can treat people this way without explanation, apology or consequence?
Yours sincerely
Paul Weston, Leader
Liberty GB
