THE LAW OF SHARIA A Woman's Plight

THE LAW OF SHARIA

A Woman's Plight

Early in December of 2001, a Sharia religious court of appeal in Muslim-dominated northwest Nigeria ordered a stay of execution for a woman who had been sentenced by a lower court to be stoned to death for having sex outside of marriage. The woman contended that she had been raped. The court granted the stay to allow Safiya Hussaini, 33, to appeal her sentence by a lower Sharia court in the state of Sokoto. The woman is a divorced mother with five children who would be orphaned and probably perish if the execution were carried out.

The court imposed the sentence after Hussaini asked it to compel a man to pay for her infant daughter's naming ceremony. She charged he had raped her three times and impregnated her. When she charged the man with rape, the court dismissed the charges against him, citing a lack of evidence because she was the sole witness. After dismissing the rape charge against the man, the lower Sharia court then charged the woman with adultery and sentenced her to death in mid-October. She was given thirty days to appeal. According to Sura 2:282 of the Qur'an, the testimony of a woman is equal to only half the testimony of a man, so Hussaini's appeal will automatically be trumped by the rapist's counter-charge.

Hussaini was sentenced to death because she was divorced. Had she never been married, the sentence would only have been one hundred lashes. The fate of her five children, of course, was of no concern to the religious court.

The Nigerian federal government has said it will not allow the sentence to be carried out, but officials in Sokoto indicated that the federal government had not contacted them about the up-coming stoning. Nigeria is not yet "One Nation Under God," since Sharia has been imposed on less than a half of its 36 states. More than a thousand people have lost their lives in riots protesting the introduction of religious law. [source - AP]

Scientific Note, a simple DNA test would clearly have shown his guilt. The court was following Sharia(h) Law concepts with respect the worth of a women; to wit, a women's testimony is only worth 1/2 that of a mans.

In Australia, Members of Islam Clearly Show How Little Regard They Have For Women.

Let’s look at some examples:

Example #1, An Imam [who was the top Muslim religious cleric in the country or mufti]justifies rape of unveiled women in Australia.

Australian cleric compares victims to 'uncovered meat' that attracts cats

October 26, 2006
© 2006 WorldNetDaily.com

Australia's top Muslim cleric rationalized a series of gang rapes by Arab men, blaming women who "sway suggestively," wear make-up and don't cover themselves in the tradition of Islam.

Sheik Taj el-Dene Elhilaly's comments in a Ramadan sermon in a Sydney mosque have stirred a furor in the country with even [then] Prime Minister John Howard weighing in with condemnation.

The cleric also said the judge in the case, who sentenced the rapists, had "no mercy."

"But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he said, referring to the women victims - whom he said were "weapons used by Satan."

The victims of the vicious gang rapes are leading the national outcry - with some calling for deportation of the sheik. In a Sydney Daily Telegraph online poll, 84 percent of people said the Egyptian-born sheik should be deported.

"If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat?" the sheik said in his sermon. "The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred."

A 16-year-old girl, whose gang rape investigation was the subject of a secret police report, issued an open letter yesterday.

"You are a sad person who has no understanding of what really happens when these people inflict harm and degrading acts upon me or any other young girl," she said.

Initially, the [then] mufti of Australia would not back away from his comments. But today he apologized.

"I unreservedly apologize to any woman who is offended by my comments," he said in a statement. "I had only intended to protect women's honor."

Howard said the sheik's remarks were "appalling and reprehensible."

Example #2, An article By Sharon Lapkin
FrontPageMagazine.com | December 15, 2005

In Australia this week amidst anger over an Islamic man's rape conviction and the bashing of two Aussie life savers, working-class locals erupted in a rampage of anger and brawling in some of the worst racial riots in decades. But there is more to the story than is being repeated in the American mainstream media....

Four days after he set foot in Australia, the rape spree began. And during his sexual assault trial in a New South Wales courtroom, the Pakistani man began to berate one of his tearful 14-year-old victims because she had the temerity to shake her head at his testimony.
But she had every reason to express her disgust. After taking an oath on the Qur'an, the man - known only as MSK - told the court he had committed four attacks on girls as young as 13 because they had no right to say "no." They were not covering their face or wearing a headscarf, and therefore, the rapist proclaimed: "I'm not doing anything wrong."

MSK is already serving a 22-year jail term for leading his three younger brothers in a gang rape of two other young Sydney girls in 2002. In his own defence, he argued that his cultural background [religion], was responsible for his crimes.

No comment necessary as the articles clearly prove what little regard many in Islam have for women because of their religious training. FOR MORE ON THIS SUBJECT, GO TO, http://iris89.conforums.com/index.cgi?board=SHARIA&action=display&num=1369173898

Islam Wants Female Victims Of Rape Punished

Post  Admin on Mon Jul 22, 2013 2:31 pm

Islam Wants Female Victims Of Rape Punished

Believe it or not, Islam wants female victims of rape punished, but does not seem to care about doing much about their attacker. Do not believe this, read the following Associated Press account and see the proof.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — With her passport back in hand, a Norwegian woman at the center of a Dubai rape claim dispute said Monday that officials dropped her 16-month sentence for having sex outside marriage in the latest clash between the city's Islamic-based legal codes and its international branding as a Western-friendly haven.
Dubai authorities hope the pardon of the 24-year-old woman will allow them to sidestep another potentially embarrassing blow to the city's heavily promoted image as a forward-looking model of luxury, excess and cross-cultural understanding.
"I am very, very happy," Marte Deborah Dalelv told The Associated Press after she was cleared by the order of Dubai's ruler. "I am overjoyed." But the case points to wider issues embedded in the rapid rise of Gulf centers such as Dubai and Qatar's capital Doha, host for the 2022 World Cup. These cities' cosmopolitan ambitions often find themselves at odds with the tug of traditional views on sex and alcohol.
Nowhere in the region are the two sides more in potential conflict than Dubai, where the expatriate work force outnumbers locals 5-to-1 and millions of tourists arrive each year with high-end fun on their minds.
Most foreign residents and visitors coast through Dubai's tolerant lifestyle. Women in full Islamic coverings shop alongside others in miniskirts, and liquor flows at resorts and restaurants. Yet once authorities determine a legal line has been crossed, it's often difficult and bewildering for the suspects.
Dalelv, in Dubai for a business meeting, said she told police in March that she was raped by a co-worker after a night that included cocktails. She was held in custody for four days and sentenced last week for illicit sex outside marriage and alcohol consumption — which is technically illegal without a proper license, but the rule is rarely enforced.
The alleged attacker, identified as a 33-year-old Sudanese man, was charged with the same offenses and received a 13-month sentence — also cleared by a pardon, according to Dalelv. Rape prosecutions are complicated in the United Arab Emirates because — as in some other countries influenced by Islamic law — conviction requires either a confession or the testimony of adult male witnesses.
In a twist that often shocks Western observers, allegations of rape can boomerang into illegal sex charges for the accuser. In 2008, an Australian woman said she was jailed for eight months after claiming she was gang-raped at a UAE hotel.
The fears of sex-outside-marriage charges also lead some single domestic workers in the UAE to abandon their babies or seek back-room abortions. Other, less serious, cases have also shed light on the tensions in Dubai between cosmopolitan modernity and Muslim legal codes and tribal traditions. In 2009, a British couple was sentenced to one month each in prison after an Emirati woman claimed they engaged in an overly passionate kiss. Motorists have been convicted for a rude gesture in a moment of road rage.
"I have my passport back. I am pardoned," said Dalelv, who worked for an interior design firm in Qatar. "I am free." There was no immediate word from Dubai officials, including whether the pardon was linked to traditions of clemency during the current Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
"I have my life back," added Dalelv. "This is a great day." Her mother, Evelyn Dalelv, told the AP from Norway she is "incredibly happy" at the outcome, but thinks her daughter would consider returning to the Middle East after further study in interior design.
"Luckily, she is going back to study in Oslo in the autumn," she said. In Norway, Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide posted a Twitter message: "Marte is released! Thanks to everyone who signed up to help."
Barth Eide told the Norwegian news agency NTB that international media attention and Norway's diplomatic measures helped Dalelv, who was free on appeal with her next court hearing scheduled for early September. Norway also reminded the United Arab Emirates of obligations under U.N. accords to seriously investigate claims of violence against women.
"The United Arab Emirates and Dubai is a rapidly changing society. This decision won't only affect Marte Dalelv, who can travel home now if she wishes to, but also serve as a wake-up call regarding the legal situation in many other countries," Barth Eide was quoted as saying.
Norway's Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg wrote on Twitter: "Happy that Marte has been pardoned and that she is a free woman again." Dalelv said she planned to leave the UAE soon, but first wanted "to thank some very special people," including local groups that supported her. She had been staying at a Norwegian-linked aid center.
The AP does not identify the names of alleged sexual assault victims, but Dalelv went public voluntarily to talk to media. In an interview with the AP last week, she recalled that she fled to the hotel lobby and asked for the police to be called after the alleged attack. The hotel staff asked if she was sure she wanted to involve the police, Dalelv said.
"Of course I want to call the police," she said. "That is the natural reaction where I am from." Norway's foreign minister said "very high level" Norwegian officials, including himself, had been in daily contact with counterparts in the United Arab Emirates since the verdict against Dalelv.
"We have made very clear what we think about this verdict and what we think about the fact that one is charged and sentenced when one starts out by reporting alleged abuse," Barth Eide said. In London, a rights group monitoring UAE affairs urged authorities to change laws to "ensure victims are protected, feel comfortable reporting crimes and are able to fairly pursue justice."
"While we are pleased that Marte can now return home to Norway, her pardon still suggests that she was somehow guilty of a crime," said Rori Donaghy, a spokesman for the Emirates Center for Human Rights. "Until laws are reformed, victims of sexual violence in the UAE will continue to suffer in this way and we will likely see more cases such as this one."

The True Face Of Islam With Respect Women

Post  Admin on Sun Jul 28, 2013 9:09 pm

The True Face Of Islam With Respect Women

Learn reality, the false prophet had little regard for women and this was recorded in Tafsir al-Qurtubi(see vol. 17, p. 172), one of the Islamic world's most authoritative exegeses, or commentary on the teachings of the Koran.

Islam on Cows, Horses, Camels and Women
by Raymond Ibrahim
FrontPageMagazine.com
July 24, 2013

http://www.meforum.org/3563/islam-cows-horses-camels-women
One of the few positive developments following the rise of the Islamists during the "Arab Spring" is that today many average and/or nominal Muslims are seeing the true face of Islam and its teachings. And many—as evinced by the June 30 Revolution of Egypt, which saw the ousting of the Muslim Brotherhood—don't want to deal with it.
For example, during a recent episode of "With Dr. Islam Buhira" on Al Qahira Wa Al Nass TV station, Buhira explained how he had attended "a conference in Morocco on the status of women in society post Arab Spring," and how at the conference, the following interpretation of the Koran by renowned Islamic exegete, al-Qurtubi (d.1273), was read: "Women are like cows, horses, and camels, for all are ridden."
After quoting al-Qurtubi's words, Dr. Buhira continued, in a disappointed tone: "This is how al-Qurtubi speaks about women, who include his mother, his daughters—basically all Muslim women. He says they are 'all ridden.' This is what makes them similar to animals."
Hard to believe or not, the idea that "Women are like cows, horses, and camels, for all are ridden," is in fact recorded in Tafsir al-Qurtubi(see vol. 17, p. 172), one of the Islamic world's most authoritative exegeses, or commentary on the teachings of the Koran.
In fact, comparing women to beasts is not uncommon in Islam and traces back to Prophet Muhammad himself, who is recorded saying, "Women, dogs, and donkeys annul a man's prayer" (Musnad Ibn Hanbal, vol. 2, p. 2992).
I first translated and discussed these texts likening women to animals in 2008, in the context of how female concubines in Islam are not deemed human, as the Arabic relative pronoun used in the Koran to indicate captive sex-slaves is "it"—as in an animal—not "she" (e.g., Koran 4:3).
Even so, many Muslims, including women, are only now learning about these texts and teachings. The fact is many Muslims really don't know much about Islam beyond the Five Pillars. But they have been conditioned to believe that, whatever Sharia says must be laudable and judicious—Sharia being the law of their god as delivered by their beloved prophet. Moreover, in the last couple decades the slogan "Islam is the solution" became popular as a panacea to all of society's ill.
That is, until it went from being theory to reality.
Put differently, now that the Arab Spring has brought Islamists to power—in Tunisia, in Egypt, in Libya, and currently trying (at the tip of the jihadi sword) in Syria—nominal and nonobservant "cultural" Muslims, and they are not a few, who for decades were ruled by Westernized autocrats and media, are finally seeing the true face of Islam and its teachings, in all their minutia, up close and personal. This new acquaintance with the truth is setting some of them free—even as it further enslaves those who like what they see.
Raymond Ibrahim is author of the new book, Crucified Again: Exposing Islam's New War on Christians (published by Regnery in cooperation with Gatestone Institute, 2013). A Middle East and Islam expert, he is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, associate fellow at the Middle East Forum.

Muslim Abuse Of Young Girls By Being Pedophiles Just Like Their Prophet Who Consummated A Marriage To A Nine (9) Year Old Girl

Muslim Abuse Of Young Girls By Being Pedophiles Just Like Their Prophet Who Consummated A Marriage To A Nine (9) Year Old Girl

Child Bride Dies in Yemen From Injuries on Wedding Night
By Emily
Created 2013-09-12 07:53

An eight-year-old child bride has died in Yemen of internal bleeding sustained during her wedding night after being forced to marry a man five times her age,human rights activists have said.

The girl, identified only as Rawan, died in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia.

Activists are now calling for the groom, who is believed to be around 40 years old, and the girl's family, to be arrested so they can face justice in the courts. They say arrests would help put a stop to the practice of marrying very young girls to older men, a common practice in the region. [[a form of pedophilism]]

The practice of marrying young girls is widespread in Yemen and has attracted the attention of international rights groups seeking to pressure the government to outlaw child marriages.

More than a quarter of Yemen's females marry before the age of 15, according to a report issued by Human Rights Watch. Yemen passed a law in 2009 which sets the minimum age for marriage at 17 years, however, it was repealed after conservative lawmakers complained that it went against Islamic teachings.[[many members of Islam favor pedophilism ]]

Yemen had previously set the minimum age for marriage at 15 years ago, but parliament annulled that law in the 1990s, saying parents should decide when a daughter marries. [[many parents who are members of Islam like pedophilism ]]

Yemen's gripping poverty plays a role in hindering efforts to stamp out the practice, as poor families find themselves unable to say no to “bride-prices” for their daughter which can be hundreds of dollars.
Tribal customs also play a role, including the belief that a young bride can be shaped into an obedient wife, bear more children and be kept away from temptation.

In September 2010, a 12-year-old Yemeni child-bride died after struggling for three days in labor to give birth, a local human rights organization said.[[extreme child abuse and pedophilism]]

Top Saudi cleric says women who drive risk damaging their ovaries

Top Saudi cleric says women who drive risk damaging their ovaries

RIYADH (Reuters) - One of Saudi Arabia's top conservative clerics has said women who drive risk damaging their ovaries and bearing children with clinical problems, countering activists who are trying to end the Islamic kingdom's male-only driving rules.
A campaign calling for women to defy the ban in a protest drive on October 26 has spread rapidly online over the past week and gained support from some prominent women activists. On Sunday the campaign's website was blocked inside the kingdom.
As one of the 21 members of the Senior Council of Scholars, Sheikh Saleh al-Lohaidan can write fatwas, or religious edicts, advise the government and has a large following among other influential conservatives.
His comments have in the past played into debates in Saudi society and he has been a vocal opponent of tentative reforms to increase freedoms for women by King Abdullah, who sacked him as head of a top judiciary council in 2009.
In an interview published on Friday on the website sabq.org, he said women aiming to overturn the ban on driving should put "reason ahead of their hearts, emotions and passions".
Although the council does not set Saudi policy, which is ultimately decided by King Abdullah, it can slow government action in a country where the ruling al-Saud family derives much of its legitimacy from the clerical elite.
It is unclear whether Lohaidan's strong endorsement of the ban is shared by other members of the council, but his comments demonstrate how entrenched the opposition is to women driving among some conservative Saudis.
"If a woman drives a car, not out of pure necessity, that could have negative physiological impacts as functional and physiological medical studies show that it automatically affects the ovaries and pushes the pelvis upwards," he told Sabq.
"That is why we find those who regularly drive have children with clinical problems of varying degrees," he said.
A biography on his website does not list any background in medicine and he did not cite any studies to back up his claims.
U.S. diplomats in a 2009 Riyadh embassy cable released by WikiLeaks, described Lohaidan as "broadly viewed as an obstacle to reform" and said that his "ill-considered remarks embarrassed the kingdom on more than one occasion".
The ban on women driving is not backed by a specific law, but only men are granted driving licenses. Women can be fined for driving without a license but have also been detained and put on trial in the past on charges of political protest.
Sheikh Abdulatif Al al-Sheikh, the head of the morality police, told Reuters a week ago that there was no text in the documents making up sharia law which bars women from driving.
Abdullah has never addressed the issue of driving (Reporting by Angus McDowall in Riyadh and Maha El Dahan in Abu Dhabi; Editing by Louise Ireland) . [source - retrieved from http://news.yahoo.com/top-saudi-cleric-says-women-drive-risk-damaging-092329183.html on 9/29/2013]

MANY MUSLIMS ARE AGAINST EDUCATION FOR GIRLS – THIS IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY:

MANY MUSLIMS ARE AGAINST EDUCATION FOR GIRLS – THIS IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY:

Taliban shooting survivor speaks in 'I Am Malala'

AP Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was shot and injured by the Taliban for advocating girls' education, poses for photographers after being awarded the International Children's Peace Prize 2013 during a ceremony in the Hall of Knights in The Hague, Netherlands. A year ago, Malala Yousafzai was a schoolgirl in northwest Pakistan, thinking about calculus and chemistry, Justin Bieber songs and "Twilight" movies. Today she's the world-famous survivor of a Taliban assassination attempt, an activist for girls' education _ and a contender to win the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday Oct. 11, 2013.

Today she's the world-famous survivor of a Taliban assassination attempt, an activist for girls' education _ and a contender to win the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday Oct. 11, 2013.

LONDON (AP) — A year ago, Malala Yousafzai was a 15-year-old schoolgirl in northwest Pakistan, thinking about calculus and chemistry, Justin Bieber songs and "Twilight" movies.

Today she's the world-famous survivor of a Taliban assassination attempt, an activist for girls' education — and a contender to win the Nobel Peace Prize later this week. It's easy to forget she is still a teenager, and now a long way from home.

The memoir "I Am Malala" goes some way toward redressing that balance. Published around the world on Tuesday, the book reveals a girl who likes "Ugly Betty" and the cooking show "Masterchef," worries about her clothes and her hair, but also has an iron determination that comes from experience beyond her 16 years.

The book, written with the British journalist Christina Lamb, recounts Malala's life before and after the moment on Oct. 9, 2012, when a gunman boarded a school bus full of girls in Pakistan's Swat Valley and asked "Who is Malala?" Then he shot her in the head.

The shooting is described briefly but vividly in the book, which is briskly written but full of arresting detail. "The air smelt of diesel, bread and kebab mixed with the stink from the stream where people still dumped their rubbish," Malala remembers. One of her friends tells her later that the gunman's hand shook as he fired.
Around that pivotal event, the book weaves Malala's life story into the broader tale of her home region of Swat, a remote, mountainous region near the Afghan border. She says it is "the most beautiful place in the world," but it's also a crossroads traversed for millennia by armies and invaders, from Alexander the Great to Winston Churchill.

Into this valley, in the years after 9/11 and the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan, came the Islamic fundamentalist Taliban. The book describes their arrival — preaching against girls' education, shutting down DVD sellers and barber shops and displaying the bodies of people they've executed. They blew up the region's ancient Buddha statues, and then they began blowing up schools.

"They destroyed everything old and brought nothing new," Malala writes. Malala considers herself a believing Muslim and a proud member of the Pashtun ethnic group, but recounts how from an early age she questioned her culture's attitude toward women.

"When I was born, people in our village commiserated with my mother and nobody congratulated my father," she writes. Her father felt differently. The book recounts her debt to Ziauddin Yousafzai, an educator who founded the school Malala attended and kept it open to girls in the face of pressure and threats. He passed on to his daughter a hunger for knowledge and a questioning spirit.
At 11, she began giving TV interviews in Pakistan about girls' education. In 2009, she started writing a blog for the BBC Urdu service under a pseudonym. She soon became well known within Pakistan — and therefore a potential Taliban target. But she was reassured by the thought: "Even the Taliban don't kill children."

That optimism proved misplaced, but — miraculously, it seemed to many — Malala survived the shooting. The final part of the book describes Malala's life from the moment she regained consciousness in a British hospital, where she had been flown for specialist treatment, with the thought: "Thank God I'm not dead."

She undergoes intense pain and multiple surgeries. In the hospital, Malala asks why her abdomen appears hard and swollen. It is the top of her skull, removed to alleviate pressure and stored there until it could be reattached.
There are other striking, surprising details. Malaala's favorite actress is Angelina Jolie. She loves the TV show "Ugly Betty," whose central character works at a fashion magazine; Malala dreams "of one day going to New York and working on a magazine like her."

In the hospital she enjoys the "Shrek" movies, but is shocked by the scene in "Bend it Like Beckham" when the female soccer players take off their jerseys to reveal sports bras. She reads "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" — sent to her by former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown — and identifies with Dorothy, trying to get home.
Malala goes to school in England now, and lives with her family in a house behind a big gate in the city of Birmingham. It reminds her a bit of being under house arrest. The Malala Fund set up in her name campaigns for girls' education around the world. She has received multiple awards and addressed the United Nations on her 16th birthday. Later this month she is due to meet Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.

She remains determined to return to Pakistan one day and enter politics. And she says the Taliban's attempt to silence her has backfired spectacularly. "When I was shot they thought the people would be silenced, they thought that no one would talk," she told the BBC in a recent interview.

"I think they might be repenting why they shot Malala." __ Jill Lawless can be reached at http://Twitter.com/JillLawless [SOURCE - RETRIEVED FROM http://www.mail.com/news/world/2384446-taliban-shooting-survivor-speaks-i-malala.html#.7518-stage-set3-3 ON 10/8/2013]

REALITY – FALSE RELIGION IS TEARING THE WORLD APART – SEE THE EVIDENCE

Post  Admin on Wed Oct 09, 2013 11:28 am

REALITY – FALSE RELIGION IS TEARING THE WORLD APART – SEE THE EVIDENCE

False religions promotion of anti-freedom laws such as Sharia and their discrimination against other individuals because of gender is tearing society apart in country after country. See the proof below, where an entire nation is ambivalent to human rights and education for girls because of false religion.

World cheers Malala, but Pakistanis ambivalent


MINGORA, Pakistan (AP) — One year after a Taliban bullet tried to silence Malala Yousafzai's demand for girls' education, she has published a book and is a contender for the Nobel Peace Prize. But the militants threaten to kill her should she dare return home to Pakistan, and the principal at her old school says that as Malala's fame has grown, so has fear in her classrooms.

Although Malala remains in Britain and her assailant is still at large, police say the case is closed. And many Pakistanis publicly wonder whether the shooting was staged to create a hero for the West to embrace.

Shortly after the attack, Pakistani schoolchildren filled the streets carrying placards with the words: "I am Malala." A year later, a popular refrain is, "Why Malala?" In Pakistan's Swat Valley, the giant sign that once identified Malala's school is gone. Rickshaws rumble to a stop as girls, their heads covered and faces obscured, scramble out and dash into the building.

The school made no plans to recognize the anniversary, although children in other parts of the country did. Teachers and students are afraid. Even a giant poster of Malala that once emblazoned the wall of the assembly hall has been removed.

Children scrambled to hide from the camera and the school principal, Selma Naz, spoke quickly and in hushed tones. "We have had threats, there are so many problems. It is much more dangerous for us after Malala's shooting and all the attention that she is getting," said Naz. "The Taliban are very dangerous. They have gone from Swat, but still they have a presence here. It is hidden, but it is here. We all have fear in our hearts."

An armed commando now stands guard outside the school's massive black steel front door. On Oct. 9, 2012, Malala left the school through that same door, laughing with her friends as they climbed into the back of a small pick-up truck used to transport the children. They laughed and talked as the truck rumbled over roads lined with pot holes.

The driver jockeyed for space on a narrow bridge that crossed a garbage-strewn stream. Suddenly a masked man with a gun stopped the truck beside a dusty, open field. A second masked man jumped into the back with a pistol.

"Who is Malala?" he shouted. No one said anything but automatically their heads turned toward Malala. He raised his pistol and fired and fired again. One bullet hit Malala on the top of the head. Two other students, Shazia Ramazan and Kainat Riaz, were also hit, but their wounds were not serious.

Malala was transferred to a military hospital near Islamabad, the Pakistani capital. Her head swelled dangerously. Doctors performed emergency surgery. Her father, Ziauddin, certain that his daughter would not survive the night, sent a message to his brother-in-law in Swat to prepare a coffin and a vehicle to take her body back.

Malala woke up a week later at a hospital in Birmingham, England, where she was taken for specialist treatment. She gradually regained her sight and her voice and was reunited with her parents. But the many awards that have since been bestowed on Malala, including a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, which is to be announced on Friday, have stirred anti-Western sentiments in Pakistan, where a brutal insurgency has killed thousands of civilians and more than 4,000 soldiers.

Frustrated by the relentless demands by the West "to do more," many Pakistanis see Malala's international acclaim as a Western drama played out to heap more criticism on their country. Last December, students at a school in the Swat Valley protested a government decision to rename it the Malala Yousafzai Girls College. Eventually, Malala's name was removed and the school returned to its original name.

Malala's battle for girls' education began when she was barely 11 years old and at a time when the Taliban roamed freely throughout the valley, blowing up schools, beheading security forces and leaving their dismembered bodies in the town square.

"It was a very, very hard time. Malala spoke out on TV and in newspapers. She was threatened, her father was threatened," said Ahmed Shah, a family friend and educator, whose battle for girls' education has also brought death threats from the Taliban. He said the Pakistan government was the first to recognize her bravery with a National Peace Award in 2011, a year before the shooting.
Shah said Malala, who is now 16 and has just published a book about the assassination attempt, also is paying a price for her notoriety. "I was talking to Malala's father the other day and he said Malala is weeping and saying, 'When will I study? I am going to America, to Austria, to Spain and for so many days I have not even had one class of geography.'"

Naz, who started as school principal three months ago, said it doesn't help that Malala's assailant is still at large. The attacker will likely never be caught, said Shah, noting that police rarely even investigate an incident if the Taliban take credit for it.

Fear among judges generally leads to acquittals anyway, said Swat lawyer Aftab Alam. "No one can dare to appear before the court, even the police cannot dare to investigate" an attack by the Taliban because of fear of retaliation, said Alam. "It is just impossible."

Military officials say Malala's assailant, identified as Attaullah, has fled to Afghanistan, while the police say the case is closed. Attaullah's sister, Rehana, told The Associated Press at her mountain home in the Swat Valley: "We don't know where he is, whether he is dead or alive."

His uncle Painda Khan mumbled: "We don't know why people are blaming him. No one has told us why." The Taliban, driven out of the once idyllic valley in a bloody military operation nearly four years ago, are slowly creeping back. In recent months militants have killed the regional commanding officer as well as dozens of men on pro-government peace committees, and warn of more assassinations until their repressive brand of Islamic law is imposed in Pakistan.

The militants remain unrepentant for the attack on Malala. Last weekend the Taliban again vowed to try to kill Malala if she returned from Britain to Pakistan, which she has repeatedly said is her dream.

"If we found her again, then we would definitely try to kill her," Taliban spokesman Shahidullah Shahid told the AP in an interview. "We will feel proud upon her death."

Re: THE LAW OF SHARIA A Woman's Plight

MANY MUSLIMS HAVE LITTLE REGARD FOR GIRLS AND DO NOT WANT THEM TO GET AN EDUCATION:

The following news item speaks to the truth that many Muslims have little regard for girls and want to keep them ignorant.

NEW YORK (AP) — A defiant 16-year-old Pakistani girl whose advocacy for education made her the target of a Taliban assassination attempt a year and a day ago told an audience in New York on Thursday she one day hopes to become her country's prime minister.

Malala Yousafzai made her comments in an interview with CNN's chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour at the 92nd Street Y. She spoke a few hours after being awarded Europe's top human rights prize and on the eve of the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize, for which she is considered a likely contender.

Asked if she wanted to be a doctor or a politician, Malala said she initially wanted to be a doctor but had learned she could help more people as prime minister. "I can spend much of the budget on education," Malala said to applause and laughter as she sat next to her father, human rights activist Ziauddin Yousafzai, the founder of an all-girls school in Pakistan.

In the interview, to be broadcast on CNN on Sunday, Malala recounted the moment she was shot while sitting in the back of a vehicle traveling home from school and reiterated that she was not intimidated by threats.

"I'm never going to give up," Malala said when asked about repeated death threats made against her by the Taliban. "They only shot a body but they cannot shoot my dreams." On Oct. 9, 2012, a masked gunman jumped into a pickup truck taking girls home from the school and shouted "who is Malala" before shooting her in the head.

Her father asked his brother-in-law to prepare a coffin. But Malala woke up a week later at a hospital in Birmingham, England, and gradually regained her sight and her voice. She said Thursday her first thought was of two friends she was with who were also injured in the attack.

"If I was shot that was fine for me but I was feeling guilty that they have been the target," she said. The world's horrified reaction to the attack led to the creation of Malala Fund, which campaigns for girls' education around the world. Malala has received multiple awards, including the $65,000 Sakharov Award, which she was awarded just hours before her interview.

The assassination attempt drew worldwide attention to the struggle for women's rights in Pakistan. Malala addressed the United Nations on her 16th birthday, and she expects to meet with Queen Elizabeth II later this month.

The Nobel Peace Prize committee will say only that a record 259 candidates, including 50 organizations, have been nominated this year. Speculation on front-runners for Friday's announcement is primarily based on previous choices and current events.

Malala said Thursday it would a "great honor and more than I deserve" to win the accolade, but insisted she still had more to do before she felt she'd truly earned it. "I need to work a lot," she said.

Malala's father said he didn't regret how outspoken his precocious only daughter has been since she was 11 years old, when she first started blogging and speaking out against the denial of education to young girls in Pakistan's Swat Valley.

"I will never put my head into the yoke of slavery," he said. Malala spoke passionately Thursday against forced marriages and the denial of education to girls and boys throughout the world. She urged young girls in the developed world to take advantage of their education — and to do their homework and be kind to their teachers.

"I would like to tell all the girls: Realize its importance before it is snatched from you," she said. Malala lives with her family in Birmingham, England. She said that while in Pakistan she liked to listen to Justin Bieber, but now longs for the Pashto music of her homeland.

NEWS SAYS IT ALL – ISLAM IS TOTALLY DEBASED –READ REALITY:

NEWS SAYS IT ALL – ISLAM IS TOTALLY DEBASED –READ REALITY:

Sex Jihad and Western Disbelief
by Raymond Ibrahim
Human Events
September 25, 2013
http://www.meforum.org/3619/sex-jihad

The sex jihad is back in the news. Last Thursday, September 19, during an address to the National Constituent Assembly, Tunisian Interior Minister Lotfi Bin Jeddo announced that Tunisian girls who had traveled to Syria to perform "sex jihad" had returned after being sexually "swapped between 20, 30, and 100 rebels and they come back bearing the fruit of sexual contacts [from pregnancies to diseases] in the name of sexual jihad and we are silent doing nothing and standing idle."

Several video interviews with Tunisian females who went to the sex jihad further testify to the veracity of this phenomenon. For example, 19-year-old Lamia, upon returning, confessed how she was made to have sex with countless men—including Pakistanis, Afghanis, Libyans, Tunisians, Iraqis, Saudis, Somalis, and a Yemeni, all in the context of the "sex jihad, and that she and many other women were abused, beaten, and forced to do things "that contradict all sense of human worth." Now back in Tunisia, Lamia has been to a doctor finding that she is five months pregnant. Both she and her unborn are carrying the aids virus (read her whole story).

Other interviewed women have told of how they were "fooled," or how their husbands (they being one of four wives) divorced and sent them to Syria for the sex jihad, with assurances that they would be guaranteed paradise in the afterlife. One 16-year-old explained how her father ordered her to have sex with several jihadi "liberators."
Due to the severity of this matter, since March, 6,000 Tunisians were banned from travelling to Syria; 86 individuals suspected of forming "cells" to send Tunisian youth to Syria have been arrested.
Back in April, Sheikh Othman Battikh, former Mufti of Tunisia, said before reporters that, "For Jihad in Syria, they are now pushing girls to go there. Thirteen young girls have been sent for sexual jihad. What is this? This is called prostitution. It is moral educational corruption."
He was dismissed from his position as Mufti of Tunisia days later.
However, as I wrote back in June when reporting on the sex jihad phenomenon:
Muslim women prostituting themselves in this case is being considered a legitimate jihad because such women are making sacrifices—their chastity, their dignity—in order to help apparently sexually-frustrated jihadis better focus on the war to empower Islam in Syria.
And it is prostitution—for they are promised payment, albeit in the afterlife. The Koran declares that "Allah haspurchased of the believers their persons [their bodies] and their goods; for theirs (in return) is the garden (of Paradise): they fight in His cause, and slay and are slain (Yusuf Ali trans. 9:111).
At any rate, while news that Muslim girls in hijabs are prostituting themselves in the name of Islam may be instinctively dismissed as a "hoax," the fact is, Islamic clerics regularly issue fatwas permitting forbidden, if not bizarre, things.
The fundamental criterion is that they help the jihad to empower Islam.
For instance, not only did the original "underwear bomber" Abdullah Hassan al-Asiri hide explosives in his rectum to assassinate Saudi Prince Muhammad bin Nayef—they met in 2009 after the 22-year-old Asiri "feigned repentance for his jihadi views"—but, according to Shi'ite talk-show host Abdullah Al-Khallaf, he had fellow jihadis sodomize him to "widen" his anus to fit more explosives.

Al-Khallaf read the fatwa that purportedly justified such actions during a 2012 Fadak TV episode. After praising Allah and declaring that sodomy is forbidden in Islam, the fatwa asserted:
However, jihad comes first, for it is the pinnacle of Islam, and if the pinnacle of Islam can only be achieved through sodomy, then there is no wrong in it. For the overarching rule of [Islamic] jurisprudence asserts that "necessity makes permissible the prohibited." And if obligatory matters can only be achieved by performing the prohibited, then it becomes obligatory to perform the prohibited, and there is no greater duty than jihad. After he sodomizes you, you must ask Allah for forgiveness and praise him all the more. And know that Allah will reward the jihadis on the Day of Resurrection, according to their intentions—and your intention, Allah willing, is for the victory of Islam, and we ask that Allah accept it of you.
Two important points emerge here: first, jihad is the "pinnacle" of Islam—for it makes Islam supreme; and second, the idea that "necessity makes permissible the prohibited." Thus, because making Islam supreme through jihad is the greatest priority, anything and everything that is otherwise banned becomes permissible. All that comes to matter is one's intention, or niyya (see Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi's discussion along these lines).
Hence the many seeming contradictions in Islam: Muslim women must chastely be covered head-to-toe—yet, in the service of jihad, they are allowed to prostitute their bodies. Sodomy is forbidden—but permissible if rationalized as a way to kill infidels and/or apostates. Lying is forbidden—but permissible to empower Islam. Suicide is forbidden—but permissible during the jihad—when it is called "martyrdom." Intentionally killing women and children is forbidden—but permissible during an Islamic jihad raid, as happened last weekend in both Peshawar and Nairobi.
One may therefore expect anything from would-be jihadis, regardless of how un-Islamic their actions may otherwise seem.
And yet, here in the West, many still refuse to believe the existence of such fatwas, habitually dismissing them as "hoaxes"—despite all the evidence otherwise: from a top Tunisian government official openly bemoaning the effects of the sex jihad on Tunisian girls, to several Arabic-language videos and reports of women discussing their experiences in the sex jihad.
Few things are more demonstrative of the arrogant mindset that proliferates amongst Western "progressives" than this inability to believe.
And it's quite ironic: for while supposedly "closed-minded" and "bigoted" conservatives tend to take the words, teachings, and deeds of Muslim clerics and jihadis at face value—and thus respect them as autonomous individuals—liberals, who always claim to "respect other cultures," often reject as "hoaxes" any news that contradicts their culturally-induced worldviews—since apparently everyone in the world shares in their standards.
If that's not an ethnocentric position—an especially dangerous one at that—what is?
