Divorce Sudanese Style

I am no fan of CNN, but to their credit, they have published this story of an 11-year-old girl in Sudan trying to obtain a divorce from her 38-year-old adult husband. In addition, they have published the story of a 19-year-old Sudanese girl facing death for killing her abusive 35-year-old husband, who she was forced to marry at 15.

"In Sudan, child marriage has been woven into the fabric of the country's culture, driven by tradition and poverty. More than a third of girls there are married before their 18th birthday, according to a 2017 UNICEF report, and 12% are wed before they reach 15. Under the country's 1991 Personal Status Law of Muslims, children can marry when they reach "maturity," which is only 10 years old. It's the lowest legal age of marriage in Africa."

In Iran, the age when a girl becomes a woman under their law is 9. Last week, I attended a talk by Iranian-born apostate Annie Cyrus. She was married off when she was not yet 15, was repeatedly beaten and raped by her husband, arrested for letting her hair show and being in a taxi alone with the driver, and lashed about 100 times while in jail.  She escaped to Turkey and now lives (under fatwas) in the US.

Then there is also CNN's report of a teenage girl facing a death sentence for killing her abusive (rapist) adult husband.

Now by a show of hands, how many of you readers want to see these practices in your countries?

The Immigration Debate Is Getting Vicious

Hat tip Daily  Caller

This issue of family separations at the border is getting downright vicious. The news media is all over Trump. Yesterday, CNN's Brooke Baldwin opened up the hour's "Breaking News" by saying that "after finger pointing and falsehoods, Trump is finally signing SOMETHING." (I am paraphrasing, but only a word or two might be off the exact quote.)

We also had former b-actor, Peter Fonda living up to his sister's standards with his expletive-deleted tweets defaming ICE, DHS head Kirstjen Nielsen, President Trump and his family.

And, of course, the learned professors in our universities are not  to be outdone. Take this example by a NYU professor named Sam Levigne:

Trump has signed an executive order that families will not be split up. Can we all now take a deep breath.

Reform Islam? Nice Thought, But How?

A begrudging hat tip to the The Intercept

There is an interesting article in The Intercept today (That site is run by leftist wacko, Glenn Greenwald, writing from self-imposed exile in Brazil, presumably.) It reports that President Trump was given a memo suggesting that the US launch an effort to push reform of Islam. Here is the article:

First of all, I agree that any such move by the US would backfire big time and do nothing more than cause more riots in the streets of Islamic countries. Whoever came up with this scheme is a fool.

As I have written before, there are practical problems in trying to have Islam emulate the Christian Reformation of Martin Luther. First of all, when Luther launched his Reformation, he was not rejecting Jesus, nor was he rejecting the Bible. He was rebelling against the corruption of the Vatican. How do you bring meaningful reform to Islam without rejecting much of what Mohammad said and did (like killing people and calling for the deaths of people? How do you reform Islam without rejecting about 60% of the Koran which damns people of other faiths and calls for them to be killed? That's not reform; that is pure apostasy. At the least, that is trying to start a new Islamic cult. Keep in mind that Sufist Muslims and Ahmadiya Muslims have a good track record in not being involved in all the terror and jihad. At the same time, they follow the Koran, Sharia law, and revere Mohammad.

But the fact remains that only Muslims can reform Islam, however they intend to do so. What we in the West need to do is place restrictions on Islamic immigration. The Europeans need to close their borders to the wave of refugees and migrants and deport whoever causes the least bit of trouble a large proportion). In the US we need to do the same. As long as this horror continues, we need to institute what Trump calls, "extreme vetting". We can diplomatically inform Muslim governments that it is a matter of protecting our own people. If they accept it, fine; if they don't, that's fine too.

The Islamic world has demonstrated that it needs to be isolated. We cannot reform Islam, but we should isolate it.

Fast and Furious Back in the News

Hat tip Conservative Daily Post

"Operation Fast and Furious featured Obama’s DOJ aiding and abetting gun smuggling into Mexico, which sent at least 2,000 firearms into the country. It was an operation, run under the leadership of the Justice Department, directly operated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives."

And nobody was ever held accountable even though many people were eventually murdered by these guns in Mexico. Also murdered by one of these guns was Border Patrol agent Bryan Terry.

And through it all, Holder and others lied, perjured themselves before Congress. Hopefully thousands of new documents obtained after years of fighting by Congress will shed new light on who really dreamed up this scheme.

And don't forget Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state. I find it hard to believe that any secstate would be clueless about what was going on since this involved a foreign country.

Garry Wills and the Religion of Peace

Hat tip PJ Media

Political commentator Garry Wills has authored a piece in which he argues that the Koran is really all about kumbaya, peace, love, understanding, lolly pops, and roses-in no particular order. Robert Spencer has a response in PJ Media.

I suggest Mr Will s stick to writing about political matters.

Tunisian Sentenced for Murder of Austrian Couple

Hat tip Breitbart and Gates of Vienna

A Tunisian man, identified only as Mohamed H.  was sentenced to life in prison for murdering an elderly Austrian  couple. It was another classic case of an ungrateful migrant enjoying life in Austria, yet at the same time hated Austrian society.

"According to a recently released Heritage Foundation study, over 1,000 individuals in Europe have been killed or injured as a result of Islamist asylum seeker violence between January 2014 and December 2017."

That is a pretty steep price to pay.

Is It Turkey-or Ham?

Hat tip Vlad Tepes

That was the big question when a Kosovar man was served a sandwich on a flight from Luton, England to Skopje, Macedonia. He said it was ham  (pork). The airline attendants assured him it was turkey. At any rate, the passenger made a big fuss and referred to the female airline attendant as a "f-----' b----". Someone had their cell phone recording the scene.

Shooter in Tumwater Killed by Armed Citizen

A great day for the Second Amendment

There was a shooting today at a Walmart store in Tumwater, Washington. The shooter, identified as Tim Day, also attempted to carjack two people but was shot and killed by an armed citizen.

I hope all these people who want to confiscate everybody's guns are reading this.

Southern Poverty Law Center Issues Apology

Hat tip The Lid

The Southern Poverty Law Center, once a respectable organization fighting bigotry, has degenerated into a left-wing activist organization that smears many innocent Americans and organizations as being racist. They often go over the line in listing counter jihad activists as being haters.

Now they have been forced to issue an apology to one of the people they have defamed, Maajid Nawaz, himself a former Muslim extremist.

Hopefully, this will be just one of many similar actions. A powerful organization such as the SPLC, with all its resources, is abusing its power to malign innocent people just because they stand up to the Islamists in our country.

Update: It appears The Lid has the amount of money being paid to Mr Nawaz in error. It is $3.4 million dollars. (Hat tip Investigative Project on Terrorism)

Jewish Parents Fight Back in Newton, Massachusetts

Hat tip Americans for Peace and Tolerance


"Most of the anger was directed at a May 2 all-day event at Newton North High
School called Middle East Day, during which Electronic Intifada proprietor Ali
’s non-profit group screened several anti-Semitic films for the Newton North students. One film, Ismail, grotesquely aped the opening scene of Schindler’s List, except with actors playing Jewish soldiers as the Nazis, and Palestinians as the Jews. “This blood libel,” said Jacobs, “the ‘Jew-as-Nazi’ lie is the ‘narrative’ that drives Jew-hatred around the world and here you are teaching this to our children.”

Jewish parents in Newton, Massachusetts decided they had had enough of their children being exposed to anti-Israel, anti-Jewish propaganda from the likes of Electronic Intifada. When Newton North High School held an all-day event dedicated to bashing Israel, parents took their complaints to the school board, which reacted in a quite arrogant fashion. This article is from Boston-based Americans for Peace and Tolerance. Their president, Charles Jacobs, was there and  has posted this report. It is highly troubling.

Electronic Intifada is a vicious site dedicated to the destruction of Israel in any way possible.

This is part of a nation-wide problem and not just in our universities. Our kids are receiving a biased indoctrination about the Middle East in general even in the 7th grade. I commend those parents who chose to speak out.

Update on Box Cutter Attack in France

Hat tip Gates of Vienna, Vlad Tepes and Ava Lon for translation

This weekend we reported on a young woman in France who attacked shoppers in a supermarket with a box cutter while yelling, "Allahu Akhbar".

Here is a news update from France (English sub-titles). Watch how the reporters twist themselves into knots trying to whitewash this attack.

".....suffers from real psychotic problems, which doesn't exclude the possibility that there could be a radicalization context since psychologically fragile people can sometimes be submerged in, sensitized and vulnerable to a certain milieu or to a certain propaganda.....

The Rot at Evergreen State College

Hat tip Vlad Tepes

Below is a video of former Evergreen College professor Bret Weinstein testifying before Congress. Weinstein, who describes himself as a liberal was literally driven from campus because he failed to toe the political correctness line.

Evergreen, located in Olympia, Washington, is, even by today's standards, an out of control university, where leftist thugs literally took over the campus last year. This tape lasts 15 minutes and is well worth the time to listen. It is also an indictment of the cowardly college president, a jellyfish named George Bridges.

I can only hope that sensible parents who pay for their children's education will avoid this institution and that donors will withdraw their funding. George Bridges needs to go, and if this university does not reform, it  deserves to go broke, devoid of money and students.

I salute Professor Weinstein for his moral courage.
