UK: Judge – who also oversees sharia tribunals – convicts Christian for voicing Bible verse

Will the judge hold Muslims who spew verses from the Koran to the same precedent? via Judge convicts Christian for voicing Bible verse.

A Christian street preacher convicted and fined by a U.K. judge, who also serves with an Islamic Shariah court, is guilty of having breached the public order by his choice of Bible verses.

Michael Overd, a former British paratrooper who has been street preaching for five years, was convicted this week of delivering “homophobic sermons” over a loudspeaker in Taunton, Somerset, last summer.

Overd faced two charges relating to claims by homosexuals he had offended them and another of causing “racially aggravated” harassment targeted at Muslims, the BBC reported. He was found guilty of only one of the “homophobic” charges.

Overd, 50, was fined $300 and ordered to pay compensation and costs totaling $1,800 at Bristol Crown Court.

“I have been ordered to pay compensation for causing ‘emotional pain’ to someone who approached me aggressively demanding to debate the issue,” said Overd. “There was no harm, injury or theft, just a simple disagreement over theology which I have now been fined for.”

District Judge Shamim Ahmed Qureshi told Overd he should not have referenced Leviticus chapter 20 in explaining the biblical view on homosexuality, but “clearly indicated that he could have used chapter 18 of the book,” reported Christian Concern.

Qureshi, who according to a 2009 article in “The Brief,” chronicling the rise of Shariah law in Britain, serves with the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal, the overseer of the nation’s Shariah courts.

Qureshi found no problem with Overd’s use of Leviticus 18:22 which describes homosexual activity as an “abomination,” but a reference to Leviticus 20:13 was impermissible because it prescribed the death penalty.

Overd agreed he used Leviticus 20 in his comments but never referenced the death penalty.

“I am being punished for words that never passed my lips,” he said.

Overd, who initially told the judge he would not pay the fine but relented when threatened with 45 days in jail, took particular issue with Qureshi dictating which passages from the Bible were lawful for him to use.

“I am amazed that the judge sees it as his role to dictate which parts of the Bible can and can’t be preached,” he said.

“I did not quote the full text of Leviticus 20 or make reference to the death penalty, but the judge is telling me that I should use other parts of the Bible. This is not free speech but censorship. The judge is redacting the Bible.

During sentencing, Qureshi criticized Overd’s speaking style and his training as a preacher.

“In my view he enjoys coaxing people into asking him questions so that he can reply loudly into the microphone to answer them. The only semblance of civilized conversation is when they commend him, if they disagree he shouts them down.”

Accusing Overd of “double standards,” Qureshi said the street preacher believed he was right and everyone else was wrong.

Qureshi continued: Overd “does not display any scholarly approach to the topics but merely preaches whatever little he had learned, regardless of being rude or bullying to others. He happily shouts out the negative points in any other religion.”


The U.S. government is doing the same, and one former Georgia politician:

The decision to fire [U.S. Army] Chaplain Modder was a manifestation of political correctness to please a person with an unwarranted complaint, nothing less, nothing more. And, while we’re at it, why are not Muslims also summarily fired for their corresponding views on the subject [homosexuality]?

Will new legislation to “restore religious liberty” in the U.S. states be shortsighted and further allow the advance of sharia law?

And quotes from CAIR, the largest Muslim advocacy group in America:

“I wouldn’t want to create the impression that I wouldn’t like the government of the United States to be Islamic sometime in the future…But I’m not going to do anything violent to promote that. I’m going to do it through education.”

“Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam … Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

“Fighting for freedom, fighting for Islam, that is not suicide,” … “They kill themselves for Islam.”

Dearborn: Judge tells parole-violating, ISIS-recruiting Muslim cleric to disclose finances

via AlohaSnackBar.

(WXYZ) Detroit – A controversial Dearborn cleric, on probation for fraud, and on the U.S. government’s radar for his extreme views, must tell the feds where and from whom his income is coming from.

They believe he is hiding assets and information.

Ahmad Jebril has failed to pay the majority of the nearly $250,000 in restitution he owes after facing 42 charges of financial fraud, they say.

Jebril’s probation is set to come to an end in mere days. He has refused to answer the U.S. Attorney’s questions, they claim. His attorney was fighting the call that he be forced to testify to his financials. Its believed he may have lied to his probation officer, and testifying could lead to new charges.

Judge Rosen said today—too bad. He wants Jebril to testify, but with some protections. That’s to be discussed tomorrow in further detail.

Jebril, who was reading what appeared to be a copy of the Quran in court, refused to comment, and walked away from 7 Action News cameras after court.

The 7 Investigators have reported extensively on Jebril over the past year. He is known for advocating Jihad and influencing hundreds of thousands of ISIS followers on social media.

Today, Judge Rosen made it clear, he does not trust Jebril, who has violated his parole on other occasions, lying about his whereabouts and his online activity.


The judge stated he’s violated numerous parole stipulations. Why isn’t he in jail? He’s a known ISIS recruiter and sympathizer, why is he not in jail?

UK: Police Cover-up of Muslim Sex Trafficking in Sheffield is ‘Bigger Than Rotherham’

via Police Cover-up of Child Sex Abuse in Sheffield ‘Bigger Than Rotherham’ – Breitbart.

South Yorkshire Police has covered up abuse on a “massive” scale in the former industrial city turned multicultural melting-pot, a retired veteran police officer has claimed, remarking in an interview the abuse was “bigger than Rotherham”.

The revelation by the former officer, who served for thirty years, could be yet another in a long line of emerging child sex scandals in predominantly northern English cities with sizeable Pakistani populations. It is not the first such revelation for South Yorkshire Police, who also failed to detect and prosecute criminal abuse in the city of Rotherham, where 1,400 known girls were trafficked and raped by a network of criminals using take-away shops and minicab firms to enable their activities.

A Sheffield city council employee tasked with tracking child sex abuse has claimed almost 700 children were referred to the police in just two years, but not a single prosecution was made on the back of the information passed to the police.

Retired constable Tony Brooks has come forward with the allegations, and has said South Yorkshire Police have long known that girls as young as twelve – putting them into the most serious category of sex abuse – were being raped, but chose not to act on the information they had, effectively creating a cover-up. Claiming 200 girls were reported to have been abused in just a three year period in the city, he told the BBC “The size of the exploitation was massive in Sheffield.

“We offered to form a unit to continue the work – we offered to advertise our work so girls would come forward. We were told, ‘it’s not going to happen, return to your districts.”

“He said to me, ‘go and spend an hour or two with each girl and find out what’s happened to them and tell them there’s not enough evidence to go on”. The officer refused to follow the order.

Police analyst Gary Birchall, who also spoke to the BBC, expressed his disbelief after he learnt of the extent of the cover-up. He was asked as part of his work to look into a special operation run by the South Yorkshire Police, and paid for by Sheffield city council which was tasked with looking into child sex abuse. He found that despite it having been specifically requested and funded to the tune of £50,000, the operation had been shelved almost immediately with officers reassigned to other work.

He requested a “full investigation” into the failure, but his call went unheeded. Speaking on the matter, he said: “I got a call telling me the operation’s been shelved. I said it can’t be shelved, there’s evidence here that children are being trafficked, being sexually abused. There isn’t a superlative that describes how I felt then or how I feel now. Utter, utter, disbelief.”


Rape gangs have assaulted more than a million young girls in the UK where whistleblowers were given “race awareness training” and ignored.

Virginia: Convicted South Park terror wannabe wanted baby to be jihadi too

We knew this Muslim rat had used his infant son as a human shield on his way to wage jihad. But after he was convicted and his wife deported, they still wanted to raise the poor baby to be a jihadi. The sanity of the judge and the grandparents have so far prevailed.

via Court hears appeal in terror-related custody dispute

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A lawyer for a radical Muslim convert imprisoned for supporting terrorism urged a federal appeals court Thursday to revive the man’s parental rights lawsuit, which a judge had dismissed as frivolous.

Jason LaFond told a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Zachary Chesser’s complaint against his mother and FBI agents, while lengthy and complicated, was not fanciful and was supported by numerous documents.

The judge who dismissed the lawsuit “didn’t say whether it was factually or legally frivolous, but it was neither,” LaFond said.

Court papers show that Chesser attempted to join the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia, taking his baby with him to the airport in an attempt to look less suspicious.

It didn’t work. Chesser, who had attracted law enforcement attention after posting threats against the creators of “South Park” for cartoons he felt insulted the prophet Muhammad, was arrested and pleaded guilty in 2010 to attempting to support terrorist groups and threatening violence online. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

His wife – Proscovia Nzabanita, the daughter of a Ugandan diplomat – was forced to leave the U.S. for lying to investigators about her husband’s activities.

Chesser’s mother, Barbara Chesser, won custody of the couple’s baby and is raising him with her partner. The young couple “opposed placing the young boy with his grandparents, who did not share Chesser and his wife’s conservative Islamic beliefs,” LaFond wrote in his client’s appeal.

Keep in mind this is the same Muslim dog who Encourages Parents to Teach Children about Jihad.

The lawsuit says FBI agents monitoring his prison conversations tipped off Barbara Chesser, a senior lawyer in the Office of the Attorney General in the District of Columbia, that the couple was making plans with a friend to take the boy to Jordan to be raised by Nzabanita. Soon after, a judge awarded custody of the boy to Barbara Chesser.

Interesting, his mother is a a senior lawyer in the Office of the Attorney General in the District of Columbia.

Zachary Chesser’s lawsuit seeks monetary damages, not custody. He says his privacy was invaded when FBI agents disclosed his plans to his mother.

Privacy? In taxpayer-funded prison?

U.S. Justice Department attorney Lowell Sturgill urged the appeals court to uphold U.S. District Judge Liam O’Grady’s decision, although he conceded that the judge should be required to explain his reasoning on the privacy issue.

The court typically rules several weeks after hearing arguments.

Nevada: Vegas neighbors lose fight against Islamic cemetery near residential communities

via Neighbors lose fight against proposed Islamic cemetery – www.ktnv.com.

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — Neighbors have lost their fight against a proposed Islamic cemetery not far from McCarran International Airport.

On Wednesday, Clark County commissioners allowed plans for the project to move forward, despite widespread opposition from people who live nearby.

The empty plot near Warm Springs and Bermuda roads is partially surrounded by homes, one of the big reasons why neighbors say the space should not become an Islamic funeral home and cemetery.

“The main concern has always been that a cemetery doesn’t fit in our neighborhood,” said one resident.

Plans call for up to 1,200 plots to serve the area’s Muslim community. Signs are posted throughout the neighborhood opposing the project.

“I have no prejudice against any religion or any denomination but I just don’t feel this residential area is a proper location,” said neighbor Tim O’Reilly.

The site is not far from an Islamic school and mosque. The county’s planning commission already approved the project but neighbors lined up to appeal the decision. They expressed concerns about property values, contaminated water and possible flooding.

“It would be appalling and gruesome to have any bodies washed away and this would be devastating to their families,” said neighbor Michelle Almassy.

Commissioners unanimously denied the appeal, allowing the project to move forward.

“I don’t have a justifiable reason to say no, other than the fact that obviously a lot of neighbors would prefer it be put in a different and separate area,” said commissioner Steve Sisolak.

Sisolak said the land’s current zoning allows for a cemetery.

The applicant said Muslims have few burial options in the valley that meet the needs of their faith.

“I will build them a cemetery that will improve the value of houses and land in that neighborhood,” said Dr. Osama Haikal.

Dr. Haikal said he’ll agree to conditions to address traffic and parking. He said a lack of understanding is fueling neighbors’ fears, “I have done everything imaginable to make sure that none of them will hurt.”

Commissioners approved the plans with roughly two dozen conditions. Organizers hope to have the project completed in about a year.


More and quite a different tone:

According to Dr Aslam Abdullah, director of the Islamic Society of Nevada, the opposition by the residents was a result of a theological problem. “We don’t have a place. We need a place. But we don’t want a place at the expense of our neighbors,” Abdullah said.

Abdullah also said that an earlier effort by a different group to build a Muslim cemetery in the northeast valley in 2012 ended with a fire at the construction site, which he believes was intentionally set and considers it as a hate crime since the cause of the fire was never determined.


We know that more often than not such purported “hate crimes” are committed by Muslims.

While it might be zoned for a cemetery, it’s a very residential area.
