Deprogramming ISIL’s vicious child jihadists

BRUSSELS — The nine-year-old boy didn’t like school. He didn’t like the other children, because he knew what they really were: evil unbelievers who deserved to die. So he did what he was trained to do — he attacked them. He was removed from the building on his first day back.

The boy had spent two years away from his European homeland in a place where counting was taught by the strokes of a whip across a torture victim’s back; where watching public beheadings was part of the school curriculum; where his only role was to be moulded into a future jihadi, or a “cub of the Caliphate.” His years in the Islamic State’s stronghold in Raqqa, Syria, had turned him into brutalized, radicalized and deeply confused young boy.

UK: Indian Muslim teenager raped & murdered in honour killing after she began relationship with an Arab’

Honour killings are part of our mosaic of diversity.

An Indian Muslim teenager was Tasered, kidnapped, raped and murdered in an alleged ‘honour killing’ after she began a relationship with an Arab Muslim, a court heard.

The body of Celine Dookhran, 19, was found inside a £1.5million home after a second woman, who was also attacked and her throat slit, alerted police from hospital, magistrates were told.

Ms Dookhran was allegedly kidnapped bound and gagged with the other woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and taken to an address in south west London where they were raped and Ms Dookran was killed on July 19.

A post mortem gave the cause of death as a wound to the neck.

Omar Khadr solidarity campaign?! You’ve got to be kidding me

You can’t make this stuff up, folks. A registered third-party group previously committed to defeating former prime minister Stephen Harper has now turned its attention to getting Canadians to show some love for Omar Khadr.

I stand with Omar Khadr” is the latest campaign from activist group Leadnow. They’re calling on Canadians to sign a petition to show their solidarity with the former al-Qaida enthusiast.

Don’t believe me? I don’t blame you. I had to read it several times myself to fully grasp the absurdity of the situation.

Yasir that’s a Hate Crime…

Kevin Johnston charged with hate crime

Peel police say they have charged a Mississauga man with one count of willful promotion of hatred.

Kevin J. Johnston, 45, has been associated with a number of websites, including the Mississauga Gazette. He is scheduled to appear at Brampton court on Monday.

Peel police said the charge “stems from a lengthy investigation into numerous incidents reported to police, involving Kevin J. Johnston and concerns information published on various social media sites.”

At Queen’s Park, Attorney General Yasir Naqvi said the government “takes allegations of hate crime very seriously. Ontario prosecutes these cases vigorously, where there is a reasonable prospect of conviction.

“In a multicultural and inclusive province like Ontario, the promotion of hatred stands in direct opposition to our fundamental values of equality and diversity. Hate divides people and communities,” Naqvi said Monday.

Last year, a story published on the Mississauga Gazette site resulted in Mayor Bonnie Crombie filing a hate-crime complaint with Peel police. It was not immediately clear if that complaint prompted Monday’s charges.

A Month of Islam and Multiculturalism in France: June 2017

June 1. Saber Lahmar, a 48-year-old Algerian who has lived in Bordeaux since his release from Guantánamo Bay in 2009, was charged with “terrorist association” and placed in pre-trial detention. He is suspected of providing financial, logistical and doctrinal aid to French jihadists who were planning to travel to Iraq and Syria. Lahmar was arrested in Bosnia in 2001 after being accused of plotting to bomb the American embassy in Sarajevo. In November 2008, U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon ordered Lahmar to be released from Guantánamo because there was insufficient reason to hold him. In December 2009, Robert C. Kirsch, a lawyer at the firm of WilmerHale, which represented Lahmar in federal court, said: “We are grateful for the courage and generosity of the French people and government, and for the ongoing effort by President Obama… which will now give Mr. Lahmar a chance to rebuild his life in France.”

Richard Dawkins is dragged into America’s tedious free-speech war

Anyone who has followed the free-speech wars in America over recent years will know that by now, basically, nobody can speak anywhere. Especially at centres like that one-time home of free speech, Berkeley, California, you now cannot speak in public if you’re a man or a woman, if you’re gay or straight and if your skin is white or not. Now to the great list of categories of people who should not be allowed to speak in America we can add scientists.

Jailed UK cleric moved to isolation after refuses to stop preaching hate: report

Notorious UK Islamist cleric Anjem Choudary has been moved into isolation at a high-security jail after he failed to stop preaching his extremist views despite warnings from prison authorities, the Sunday Times reports.

Choudary is reportedly the first known Islamist to be moved to the specially-created unit at HMP Frankland, however the Ministry of Justice has refused to identify the prisoners held in the unit.Choudary was jailed for five-and-a-half years in September 2016 for encouraging support for the Islamic State militant group.

He and co-defendant Mohammed Mizanur Rahman, 33, used a series of talks posted on YouTube to invite backing for the group, and pledged their allegiance to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Islam’s Bizarre Philosophical Problem

When attacking an epistemological structure, it is a often a waste of time to attack the consequences of a belief system when one can cut it down at the root. Islam has such a bizarre problem. And Muslims avoid it, for fear it would cause the whole religion to collapse.

Islam, like Judaism, is monadic. It only admits of a hard absolutely unitary deity.

However, Islam makes an amazing contradictory statement: the Koran is eternal.

This introduces a real problem. Anything which is eternal is, by definition, deity. And that strikes at the very core of Islam’s claim to a hard monotheism.

‘Sharia law opponents are bigots’: Muslim psychologist calls for Australia to introduce special laws for followers of Islam

A prominent Muslim psychologist with a practice in Sydney’s west says opponents of Sharia law are bigots.

Hanan Dover has told her 10,898 Facebook followers Australia needed to allow special laws for Muslims.

‘Religious groups can engage the laws and negotiate change in Australia whatever your religious schtick,’ she said.

‘But, only one of those religious laws creates political and media hysteria because it suits political fear-mongering and that’s pretty obvious – Islam.’

Hope she had her clitoris cut out.

The art of making a jihadist

We know about jihadists’ dedication to violence, but that’s not the whole story, says expert Thomas Hegghammer. There’s a hidden culture of poetry, music and storytelling that sustains their ideology

When Jihadi John, the Islamist terrorist who gloried in decapitating hostages, was exposed as Mohammed Emwazi, a spokesman from Cage recalled the west Londoner bringing “posh baklava” to the advocacy group’s offices. He described the knife-wielding murderer and gloating torturer as “a beautiful young man… extremely kind, gentle and soft-spoken, the most humble young person I knew”.

One of the people who inspired Emwazi was Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, renowned for leading the group that beheaded and tortured many western hostages in Iraq, including the British engineer Kenneth Bigley. Zarqawi was known as the Sheikh of the Slaughterers, but he was also referred to as He Who Weeps A Lot, for his habit of crying during prayer.

I thought this was a parody, then I realized I was reading the Guardian.

Jewish council says anti-Semitism in Germany is increasing

Josef Schuster, the president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, says there are still parts of the country where it is considered dangerous to be Jewish.

“In some districts in major cities, I’d advise people not to identify themselves as Jews,” he said in an interview with the Bild am Sonntag newspaper. “Experience has shown that openly wearing a kippa or a necklace with the Star of David is enough to attract verbal or physical threats.”

Schuster said anti-Semitism was increasing in Germany, and accused the government of failing to “take the necessary actions” to tackle the trend. One important step, he added, would be the appointment of a commissioner to record attacks and serve as a point of contact for people targeted by prejudice.

How tolerant should liberals be of Islamic theocracy?

I quite enjoyed James Fergusson’s exploration of British Islam – Al-Britannia, My Country. If it is done intelligently, I approve of someone accentuating the positive, reminding us that the majority of British Muslims have successfully integrated to a large extent, and that optimism is warranted.

But I have a couple of quibbles. He spends much time arguing that it is dangerously wrong to conflate conservative Islam with extremism – the alleged sin of the Prevent programme. We should tolerate those who disparage gay rights or feminism, rather than accuse them of extremism, which will drive them underground.

Fair point, but I feel his argument misses a central issue. If ‘conservative Islam’ disparages pluralism, and the secular nature of our politics, and idealises theocracy, then it surely overlaps with extremism. You could say that an extremist is a conservative who wants to put his ideas into practice.
