A Pakistani court has upheld the death sentence of a Christian woman whose 2010 conviction for blasphemy led to the assassination of two politicians who supported her, a defense lawyer said Friday.

Asia Bibi, a 50-year-old mother of five, had appealed before the Lahore High Court against the ruling, in which she was found guilty of insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, but the court rejected her appeal Thursday, her lawyer said.

“We have the right to appeal in 30 days, and we will continue this legal battle by approaching the Supreme Court of Pakistan,” Sardar Mushtaq said.

Bhati was killed months later by the Pakistani Taliban, who called him an “infidel Christian.”

Mushtaq said Bibi was arrested after Muslim women told a cleric in a village in the eastern Punjab province that she had made “derogatory remarks” about the prophet. He said the trouble began when the women objected to Bibi using their drinking glass because she was not a Muslim, setting off a heated verbal exchange.

“We have a strong case, and we will try our best to save her life,” he told The Associated Press.

International and local human rights groups have called for amending blasphemy laws introduced by the military dictator Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq in 1980s.

In a statement Thursday, Amnesty International called for Bibi’s release.

“This is a grave injustice,” said David Griffiths, Amnesty’s Deputy Asia Pacific Director. He said there were serious concerns about the fairness of the trial. “Her mental and physical health has reportedly deteriorated badly during the years she has spent in almost total isolation on death row. She should be released immediately and the conviction should be quashed,” he said.

Under Pakistani blasphemy laws, insulting the Quran or the Prophet Muhammad can be punished with life imprisonment or death. Experts say the laws often are exploited for personal gain.

Pakistan imposed a moratorium on executions in 2008 and has never executed anyone convicted of blasphemy. Instead, such cases usually linger on appeal.


As Robert Spencer points out:

His guests, David Miliband and some other clown, rush to absolve Islam from any responsibility for this, going on to argue with him that this is a Pakistani problem. They do not, however, address Maher’s point, that this blasphemy death sentence was just affirmed by a high court in Pakistan.

The same type of persecution is ramping up in the U.S., from the government jailing makers of a video, to government investigation into church sermons and coordinating with social media sites like Facebook and Twitter (Twitter Blocks Faith-Based Campaign for Houston Pastors) while mosques preach jihad and recruit jihadists.

Not to mention media coverups of Muslims beheading Christians right here in the U.S.

 

TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé follows single American mom who marries Tunisian Mohamed

Stupidity v. immigration fraud. via 90 Day Fiancé follows Americans as they prepare to marry stranger foreign spouses | Daily Mail Online.

Season two of TLC’s hit show 90 Day Fiancé will debut Sunday October 19, charting the risky romances of six Americans who move their foreign spouses to the U.S. in order to get married.

Under the terms of the K-1 visa, these foreigners are permitted to live and work in the U.S. for just 90 days before they either have to tie the knot, or return to their home countries.

Of the four couples featured in the season premiere, only one of the Americans has spent more than two weeks with their partner abroad before proposing and flying them over.

Perhaps the most ominous situation is for Ohio-based Danielle, 46, a single mother to three teenage daughters, who met her Tunisian fiancé Mohamed, 26, in an international online chat room.

Enamored by the strapping young foreigner, Danielle saves up to fly to Tunisia and meet him in person. The couple spend two weeks together, after which she returns home and Mohamed promptly proposes to Danielle via instant messenger.

‘I like that he’s from Tunisia because he’s different from American guys,’ Danielle explains. 

‘Most men his age are out partying and wouldn’t even think twice about being with a woman who has three teenage girls.’

Although Danielle, who works with the mentally handicapped, says she was initially ‘resistant’ to the idea of such a fast engagement, she knew she ‘loved and cared for him’ and claims she will ‘never leave him.’

Most men his age are out partying and wouldn’t even think twice about being with a woman who has three teenage girls

Danielle stumps up the money for Mohamed’s flights to Ohio, and from day one, trouble looms. Mohamed neglects to call Danielle when he lands in the U.S., whipping her into a frenzy of worry over the notion that he has taken the plane ticket and disappeared. 

Comforted by her understandably wary daughters, Danielle sobs through the entire episode, before heading to the airport in frantic hopes he will actually be there.

‘I’ve only spent a few days with Mohamed,’ she whimpers. ‘I hope I haven’t misjudged him.’

Mohamed does show up, but he stands stiff as post when Danielle launches herself into his arms and sobs into his armpit as her daughters, bearing a handmade welcome sign, watch on awkwardly.

‘Stop crying, stop crying,’ Mohamed implores her through forced smiles.


Danielle should read these previous Creeping Sharia posts and not leave her daughters alone with Mohamed for one second nor allow them to Tunisia or any other Muslim country.

Architect Redesigns Church Destroyed on 9/11 to Resemble Churches that Became Mosques

Mr. Calatrava designed the church and will attend its groundbreaking on Saturday. If everything goes according to schedule, the building should be finished in 2016 or early 2017.

While the 9/11 Memorial, with its twin reflecting pools and alleys of trees, masterfully creates an opportunity for quiet reflection, there’s also something to be said for a sanctuary with four walls—and perhaps for lighting a memorial candle, no matter what religion you practice, or even if you practice no religion at all.

“All the circumstances around 9/11, the memorial embodies that very well,” Mr. Calatrava said as he sat in the stately Park Avenue townhouse that does double duty as his home and his office.

“This is what I want; this is what the church wants: a very ecumenical place; they would like to have 24 hours the church open.”

But Mr. Calatrava conceded the public has the last word.

Hopefully the public reject it. But the archdiocese seems on board with the ecumenical, non-church church idea: St. Nicholas Church, Destroyed on 9/11, to Rebuild With Byzantine Design

the reflection looks more mosque-like in this rendering

That a Spanish architect should design a modern Byzantine church in Lower Manhattan for the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, based on buildings in Turkey that were used for Islamic worship, goes to the heart of the message the archdiocese says it hopes to send with the $20 million project. The new St. Nicholas is to open by early 2016.

“If I may quote Jesus, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people,’ ” said the Rev. Mark Arey, a spokesman for the archdiocese. “It will be open to everyone: the believer, the unbeliever, the Orthodox Christian, the atheist. Whoever you are, this is a space that you can come into and find some meditative solace.”

The architect claims it’s inspiration is two Byzantine churches…later conquered and converted into mosques.

Other than the barely discernible cross on top of the dome there is nothing on the exterior or interior for that matter that even suggests it is a church, never mind a rebuilt St. Nicholas.

At one point the city refused to allow St. Nicholas to rebuild. Was making it a mosque-like structure that would not offend Muslims a requirement for allowing them to rebuild?

This is the Flight 93 Memorial to Islamic Terrorists and Ground Zero Mosque redux.

 

 

Sam’s Club donates $2,500 to Florida mosque named after military wing of terror group Hamas

Sam’s Club donates $2,500 to a mosque that was named after military wing of Hamas, directed by man who pleaded guilty to raising support for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), has been a member of ISNA and hosted CAIR propaganda event.

A Florida Family Association supporter happened to look up at the wall behind the checkout line at the Sam’s Club located at 2021 Brandon Boulevard in Brandon, Florida.  He saw a large photograph of a check made out from Sam’s Club in the amount of $2,500 payable to the Islamic Community of Tampa located in the top left prominent position on the wall.  Florida Family Association snapped a cellphone photograph.   Photographs indicated that no other non-profit organization received more than $500. 

Did Sam’s Club and parent company Wal-Mart know the following when it gave this store’s largest non-profit donation to the Islamic Community of Tampa?  

  • The Islamic Community of Tampa is also known as the Al-Qassam mosque.    The Military Wing of the Palestinian Hamas is called the Al-Qassam Brigade. InvestigativeProject.org reports “The mosque, according to Sami Al-Arian, was named after Izzedin al-Qassam.   Al-Qassam, a Syrian killed fighting the British mandate in 1935, ‘is the main source of inspiration for the Islamic Jihad movement’ Palestinian scholar Ziad Abu Amr wrote in his book, Islamic Fundamentalism in the West Bank and Gaza. ‘The Islamic Jihad’s supporters have elevated him almost to a saintly status.’” 
  • The Hamas rockets fired at Israel are named Qassam rockets.  
  • Sami Al-Arian was indicted in February 2003 on 17 counts under the Patriot Act for allegedly being the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).   In 2006, Al-Arian pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to make or receive contributions of funds, goods or services for the benefit of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and was sentenced to 57 months in prison. 
  • Sami Al-Arian refused to testify before a Federal Grand Jury regarding other Jihad activities.  U.S. District Judge James Moody ruled that Al-Arian must testify. A Virginia District Court held that Sami Al-Arian had no legal basis to refuse to testify. The court held him in civil contempt, and imprisoned him on November 16, 2006.  Sami Al-Arian was released from prison on June 27, 2014 after the United States Department of Justice dropped charges.
  • Sami Al-Arian served as the Chairman of the Islamic Community of Tampa.    
  • The Islamic Community of Tampa has been a member of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and derived their tax exempt status from ISNA.  Sami Al-Arian’s letter written on Islamic Community of Tampa – Masjid al-Qassam stationery stated “We are an affiliated member of the Islamic Society of North America(ISNA) and derive our tax exempt status under 501 C 3 of the IRS code through them.”  Click here for report regarding concerns about ISNA.   
  • The Islamic Community of Tampa hosted a propaganda event for the Council on America Islamic Relations (CAIR Florida) in February 2012.  Click here for a report regarding concerns about CAIR.
  • More information regarding Sami Al-Arian and the Islamic Community of Tampa mosque can be read at FamilySecurityMatters.org and at InvestigativeProject.org 

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send that voices concern to Sam’s Club officials and parent company Wal-Mart officials regarding Sam’s Club financial support for the Islamic Community of Tampa.

Dearborn: Muslim beats woman, drags her behind car with kids inside

via Mother beaten, dragged behind car in Dearborn; Surveillance video captures domestic violence attack – WXYZ.com. h/t Diane (video at link would not embed)

DEARBORN, Mich. (WXYZ) – You can see it on the video: A car pulled over in Dearborn. Inside, a couple argued. This was no lovers’ spat. It was the beginning of a disagreement that erupted into a full blown attack on a mother and her two children.

The fight ended with a woman being dragged around a city block.

In the exclusive video above, an SUV pulls to the side of Chase Road. Police say the driver, a woman, got into an argument with the father of her children who was in the passenger seat. The mother pulled over and told the man to get out. Surveillance cameras from a business captured every detail.

With a 2-year-old and 3-year-old in the back seat, police say 34-year-old Hassan Sayed forced his way into the driver’s seat, but not before chasing the woman into the street, taking her purse, pushing and hitting her.

Police say he overpowered the mother of his children, and with the kids in the back seat, drove away at a high rate of speed dragging the mother caught in the door.

“She was still attempting to get him out of the car when he took off with her hanging on to the side of the vehicle,” says Dearborn Police Detective Patricia Penman.

Sayed is now looking at years behind bars. The habitual offender was charged Wednesday with stealing the victim’s cell phone, child abuse and neglect and assault with a deadly weapon, the weapon being the car.

This domestic dispute happened in October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness month.

The U.S. Department of Justice reports 25 percent of women will become victims of domestic violence, that’s almost a million women battered annually.

For help with domestic abuse, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).
