The former Afghanistan hostage who was freed along with his wife and three children in October used ropes and a broomstick in a series of physical and sexual assaults, a court heard Friday.
Joshua Boyle was charged with 19 counts of assault, sexual assault, threatening to cause death and administering a noxious substance, according to CBC.CA.
The 34-year-old was arrested January 1 and initially charged with 15 counts of assault against two victims between October 14, the day he returned to Canada from imprisonment and December 30.
And when the new charges were read Friday, it was also revealed Boyle will be ordered to undergo a 60-day psychological assessment in Brockville, Ontario, before his next court appearance.
…In a statement to the Toronto Star after his arrest, Boyle’s wife wrote: ‘I can’t speak about the specific charges, but I can say that ultimately it is the strain and trauma he was forced to endure for so many years and the effects that that had on his mental state that is most culpable for this.’
Tnuza Jamal Hassan, 19, appeared at her arraignment hearing Friday in a makeshift burqa covering all but her eyes.
A young woman of East African descent was arraigned in court Friday on charges of first-degree arson after she allegedly set a series of fires on the campus of St. Catherine University in retaliation for U.S. military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Tnuza J. Hassan, 19, is a former student at the school and a resident of Minneapolis, home to a large community of refugees from East Africa, including Somalia and Ethiopia.
She reportedly told police she “wanted the school to burn to the ground” and that her intent was to “hurt people,” according to the complaint charging her with one count of felony first-degree arson filed in Ramsey County District Court.
…Hassan allegedly told police she had written a letter to her roommates containing “radical ideas about supporting Muslims and bringing back the caliphate,” the complaint said.
Over the last 10 years Minnesota has been by far the top resettlement state for Ethiopians, according to data online at the U.S. State Department’s Refugee Processing Center.
I haven’t actually watched it, but I’m still willing to vouch for it.
‘Here’s a taste of what Douglas Murray at the Spectator is saying.
He wrote: “If I was Channel 4 I would take it down. If I was Cathy Newman I would sue or seek a super-injunction. I don’t think I have ever witnessed an interview that is more catastrophic for the interviewer.’
A Northumbria Police spokesman said: “As a result of a complaint, we can confirm we looked into a number of comments posted on the force’s Facebook page.
“Following an investigation, which has now concluded, we spoke to two males as voluntary attenders and visited a further four people in their homes, and provided them with words of advice.
“All expressed their remorse and stated that the intention of their comments was not to cause concern or to be offensive and have acknowledged the words of advice provided.”
Rape gangs are still operating all over the country (including in Rotherham), but police waste no time tracking down those who insult them. This is modern Britain, and its an utter disgrace. https://t.co/vRsLhO3Gdu
The Times has launched a campaign to overhaul the divorce laws — which it believes are 50 years out of date — and has enlisted various judges and eminences to advance this cause. When I first read the headline I was delighted, because with the possible exception of credit cards I can think of no post-war social development that has brought more misery to more people than the ease with which divorces are handed out these days — and, in both cases, especially to the poorest of people. But when I read on I was astonished to see that the Times wants to make it easier for people to get divorced, whereas I had assumed it wished to make it substantially more difficult. At the moment, 42 per cent of marriages end in divorce: perhaps the Times will not be content until that number is 100 per cent and thinks that the decree nisi should arrive as soon as possible, preferably the moment the bride and groom return from their honeymoon in the Maldives and before the wedding presents have been unwrapped.
…I stood outside the Job Centre in Middlesbrough a few years back, interviewing everyone who came out, or at least all those who would speak to me. The proportion of people whose parents were separated or divorced was 100 per cent. The vast majority had gone on to suffer broken marriages themselves or had sired offspring with partners and then moved on. This stuff had not made them feel free and happy. It had effectively wrecked their lives, financially and emotionally. They were hamstrung by debt and the meagre payments they had to pay to estranged spouses. The women were unable to find work because they were required to look after their kids. The men couldn’t travel for work because they still wanted to see their children. The relationships they formed were all transient and ephemeral, devoid of commitment, devoid of real love, you might say. That’s what it was like for the adults.
Prince Harry and other royals who “feed the progressive agenda” are signing the British monarchy’s death warrant, the head of Britain’s oldest conservative think tank cautioned.
Speaking on Breitbart News Daily, Bow Group chief Ben Harris-Quinney praised Queen Elizabeth II for remaining strictly neutral on political matters, but warned that her heirs are showing less respect for the convention.
“The Royal family is supposed to be apolitical, but what we’ve seen in recent years is the Duchess of Cambridge editing left-wing blog the Huffington Post,” he told SiriusXM host and Breitbart London Editor in Chief Raheem Kassam.
Pointing to Prince Harry’s politicised interview with Barack Obama on the BBC’s flagship news programme Wednesday, in which the former president launched a thinly-veiled attack on President Donald Trump, Harris-Quinney blasted the royal for “clearly politicising” his role in the family.
“More significant than this radio interview I think, is his insistence on inviting Obama to his upcoming wedding, which will be a state event, and making a point to snub Donald Trump.”

“Christmas is a time where Christians pick on Muslims in the United Kingdom, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown claimed Friday in the International Business Times”
There is no end to the deception and constant screaming of “Islamophobia” at every turn. What better way to turn the perception of victimhood around? The report below discusses Alibhai-Brown’s “decrying ‘Muslim panic stories,’” but what she wrote was much worse than that. In the International Business Times, she actually compares “Islamic ultra-conservatives” to Westerners attacking Muslims:
“We Muslims can’t win. If we join in, we are interlopers, gate crashers or faith traitors. If we don’t, we imperil the nation, insult its God and identity. The crusade is still with us and playing out under twinkling fairy lights.”
It is astonishing that the International Business Times would actually publish this malarkey. No one has ever decried Muslims or anyone choosing not to celebrate Christmas; however, “Islamic ultra conservatives” certainly harass Muslims who choose to do so.
Hundreds took to the streets in the southern Swedish town of Malmo this week to protest the government’s response to a three brutal gang rapes of teenage girls over a three week period – the most recent of which took place in a playground last Saturday and left a 17-year-old girl hospitalized.
Authorities haven’t disclosed the identity of the suspect(s) and have offered scant details of the attack – though it has been described by authorities as particularly brutal, with unconfirmed reports on social media claiming the victim had lighter fluid poured in her vagina and set on fire.
“We have been policemen for a long time, several of us, I have been working for 35 years, and we have not had such a thing before. You’ve really crossed a border, it’s a very unusual treatment, says Inner Police Commander Mats Attin to SVT News Skene. –SVT (translated)
Attin adds that the 17-year-old victim was exposed to a “special ruthlessness,” during the violent encounter, however he did not go into further detail. “We have received information from the public that we find very interesting. This is a horrendous crime,” said Anders Nilsson who is leading the preliminary investigation.
A 36-year-old Staten Island man who claims to have had a lifelong phobia of the Tasmanian Devil cartoon is accusing his wealthy father-in-law of making his life hell by menacing him with a bushy toupee that looks like the manic children’s character.
The situation has gotten so bad, supermarket mogul Yunes Doleh, 62, was arrested in November on felony charges for violating a restraining order by waving his “Devil” hairpiece at son-in-law, Mazen Dayem, during a funeral.
“He walked in as I was already there,” Dayem told The Post. “He removed his wig, made hand gestures. It’s just a very large fear of mine, his damn wig. Him and his hair reminds me of the Tasmanian Devil hair. I truly and genuinely have a large fear of wigs now. It’s a genuine fear. I have nightmares.”
Dayem says he’s had a debilitating fear of the wild Warner Bros. character for as long as he can remember.
“It always made me very anxious,” he said.
…Dayem’s attorney, Robert Garson, confirmed his client’s unusual phobia by comparing the hairpiece to an actual animal.
