UN Sides With Hamas ... To No One's Surprise
Sunday, June 17, 2018 8:38 PM

From World Israel News:
The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) Wednesday rejected a US motion against Hamas, but affirmed a Palestinian-led initiative against Israel that condemned the Jewish state for the actions it took to prevent thousands of Gazans from overrunning its border fence.

The UNGA also criticized Israel’s counter-terror and policing actions against Palestinians in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

The American amendment condemning Hamas was struck down, even though it had a slim majority, 62-58, and 42 abstentions.

UNGA President Miroslav Lajčák of Slovakia ruled that a two-thirds majority was needed for an amendment to be added to a draft resolution.

Haley appealed his decision, which led the session to be adjourned for several minutes. The appeal was rejected.

“Today the UN made the morally bankrupt judgment that the recent Gaza violence is all Israel’s fault. It is no wonder that no one takes the UN seriously as a force for Middle East peace,” Haley said.

“But the common practice of turning a blind eye to the UN’s anti-Israel bias is changing. Today, a plurality of 62 countries voted in favor of the US-led effort to address Hamas’s responsibility for the disastrous conditions in Gaza. We had more countries on the right side than the wrong side,” she said.

Prior to the vote Haley said that her country’s amendment “reflects the minimum truth of what is going on in Gaza. It is the least that any self-respecting international organization or nation can do for the cause of peace.”

“To those who are unsure about how to vote, I ask, what part of our amendment is objectionable? Is it objectionable to condemn Hamas for firing the rockets at civilians?” Haley asked….

Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon told the General Assembly prior to Haley’s statement that if the UN approved the Palestinian resolution, “it will have signed in writing its unequivocal support for terrorism against Israel.”

“Let us not pretend,” Danon said. “If ISIS were to attack Stockholm tomorrow, ISIS would be held responsible for the attack. If al-Qaeda assaulted Paris, the UN would issue the strongest condemnation of al-Qaeda,” he added.

“Only when Hamas attacks Israel does the UN seek to blame Israel,” Danon said. “The moral majority in this chamber should not tolerate a different standard for Israeli victims of terror.”

“I have a simple message for those who support this resolution. You are the ammunition for Hamas’s guns. You are the warheads for Hamas’s missiles,” Danon said.
UK: Man Rips Off Woman's Cross Off Door After Delivering Food
Sunday, June 17, 2018 7:55 PM

From Metro (UK):
This is the shocking moment a takeaway delivery driver ripped a Christian cross from a woman’s front door then threw it on the floor before delivering her food.

Georgia Savva, 48, had just been about to leave for work on Tuesday when she noticed the Palm Sunday cross that had been on display by her front door for years had been torn into pieces and left scattered on her doormat.

Surprised, she asked her two teenage children to check the family’s CCTV security system to see what had happened, assuming an animal was to blame.

But she was left shocked when the footage revealed the creepy truth – that their supposedly friendly local takeaway house’s delivery driver had grabbed it from the wall and ripped it in half, before chucking it to the ground.

Just seconds later the video shows the door opening and Ms Savva’s teen son handing the worker cash for the takeaway – including a generous tip.

Last night, the 48-year-old finance worker, who is Greek Orthodox, said she was heartbroken that anyone could be so disrespectful.

She has been visiting the Romna Gate Tandoori in her home of Southgate, north London, since she was a teenager, spending thousands there and always tipping staff at the Indian restaurant.

She said: ‘I saw the broken cross on Tuesday and mentioned it to the children, who are at home revising for exams.

‘They told me to go to work and they would check the camera at the front of the house.

‘I assumed it would be a fox or something as the cross had been there for years, but they called me and said it was the delivery driver.

‘I called the restaurant and they ignored me and then I was so furious I went in there after work….

‘People are all too aware of things that are anti-Muslim, or anti-semitic, but there isn’t even a name for things that are anti-Christianity.

‘There is no way I’m letting this rest. There is no way I’m going to let my children think that sort of behaviour is OK. If I can prosecute, I will.’

Georgia has now called the police and they came out to interview her on Wednesday night.

She shared the video of the delivery driver on Facebook, saying she was ‘disgusted’ and tagging the restaurant responsible.

She posted: ‘This is the moment the vile delivery driver* tore down our palm crucifix off the wall and threw it to the ground.

‘Who knew anti-Christianity was rife in North London! I have called several times and left messages and went into the restaurant and was told there is nobody of authority that can assist. Absolutely disgusted.’

Georgia was inundated with supportive comments, saying no religious hatred should be tolerated.

The restaurant has since put up an apology to Georgia on its Facebook page and blamed Ramadan for the fact they haven’t got back to her….

‘There have so far been no arrests.’
France Spends $40,000,000 On New Fences Around The Eiffel Tower
Sunday, June 17, 2018 7:47 PM

Diversity is strength!

From the BBC:
Paris is to unveil its newly built perimeter defences around the Eiffel Tower to protect against terror threats.

Temporary barriers were placed around the tower in June 2016, and are now being replaced with more permanent measures.

Set to be completed in mid-July, the fences cost nearly €35 million ($40.1m; £30.1m).

More than 240 people have died in terror attacks in France since 2015.

Bernard Gaudillère, president of the Société d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel (SETE) which runs the iconic monument, said the new walls were “rock-solid for absolute security”.

Glass walls measuring 6.5cm (2.5in) thick will form two sides of the square, with the other two blocked off by 3.24m (10.6ft) high metal barriers, exactly one-hundredth the height of the tower.

To prevent vehicle attacks, 420 blocks will be placed in front of the glass walls as an added protection.

The forecourt under the Eiffel tower has been closed to the public since June 2016, with anti-terror troops regularly patrolling the site….
UK: Non-Muslim Police Officers Take Part In 18-Hour Ramadan Fast To 'Gain A Better Understanding' Of The Local Community
Sunday, June 17, 2018 7:29 PM

From the Daily Mail:
Non-Muslim police officers have taken part in an 18-hour fast for Ramadan to help boost relations with the Islamic community.

Northamptonshire Police said the move was to ‘show unity’ and ‘gain a better understanding’ of the local community during the Muslim holy month.

PSCO’s were this week pictured at the Headlands Mosque in Northampton, joining in with the evening iftar meal having fasted from sunrise to sunset.

Northamptonshire Police said the move was an attempt to get ‘deeper into community roots’ while the mosque also welcomed the officers’ participation.

Trustee of the Mosque, Mr Ayub Abdulla, said: ‘It was heartening to see people from the police taking part in the fast and joining us with their families for the evening meal.

‘The local officers, in particular our two local PCSO are extremely helpful and take an active interest in helping us and facilitating greater understanding between us.’…
Iranians Celebrate Soccer Victory By Chanting "Reza Shah"
Sunday, June 17, 2018 7:25 PM

Jihad Watch points out: "In chanting his name, Iranians are expressing their dissatisfaction with the Islamic Republic that supplanted Reza Shah’s son and successor, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi. We can only hope that free people will soon be able to overthrow the tyrannical and oppressive Islamic Republic, and give Iranians the government they deserve.  It is noteworthy that in Iran, the people are clamoring for freedom, while in Britain, they’re racing with breakneck speed into slavery."
UK: Muslim Activist Hits Police Officer, Escapes With Suspended Sentence
Sunday, June 17, 2018 7:24 PM

From Metro (UK):
A Muslim activist who hit a police officer with his walking stick at a Tommy Robinson rally in Hyde Park has escaped with a suspended sentence.

Omar Mohamad, 62, scuffled with Sergeant Guy Rooney and left him with a severely bruised face at a counter protest in Hyde Park in March 2018.

The officer suffered from post traumatic stress and his injury was so bad his children refused to walk to school with him.

Passing a 26-week suspended sentence, District Judge Richard Blake said the rally was held ‘to express views that were adverse to the Muslim community in the United Kingdom.’

‘We live in a democracy – people should feel free, within limits, to express their opinions,’ the judge said.

‘You were with a group of other men. It is fair to say that immediately in front of you there was a fracas.

‘You joined into the melee that happened and you joined in with your stick.

‘While you do need that stick to walk with, you very much used it by wielding it around as a weapon. You brought the stick round and struck the officer in the face.

‘There is no doubt that this was a very significant injury that you caused with your stick.’…
Russia: Taxi Plows Into Moscow Crowd Including Soccer Fans, Injuring Seven
Sunday, June 17, 2018 6:30 AM

From Reuters:
MOSCOW (Reuters) – A taxi drove into a crowd of pedestrians near Moscow’s Red Square on Saturday, injuring eight people including two Mexicans in the city for the soccer World Cup which Russia is hosting, officials and eyewitnesses said.

The incident took place as residents and visiting soccer fans thronged the center of Moscow on a balmy summer evening.

Moscow’s traffic management authority said the taxi driver had a driver’s license issued in Kyrgyzstan, a mainly Muslim ex-Soviet republic. It cited the driver, who was in police custody, as saying he had not driven into the crowd on purpose.

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said in a post on Twitter: “There was an unpleasant incident with a taxi. The driver lost control of the vehicle.” 
Video of the incident posted on social media showed the yellow Hyundai taxi pull sharply out of a line of stationary traffic, accelerate and mount the narrow pavement, which was packed with pedestrians.  
Man Who Was ‘Trying To Get His Life Straightened Out’ Dies From Beating In Brawl At Lewiston’s Kennedy Park
Saturday, June 16, 2018 8:27 PM

From the Press Herald:
The 38-year-old man who was badly beaten during a brawl this week in Lewiston’s Kennedy Park has died, state police said.

Donald Giusti of Lewiston died Friday afternoon at Central Maine Medical Center, where he had been hospitalized since late Tuesday night when the fight erupted.

Friends of Giusti, a father of two, described him as a former brawler who had been trying to turn his life around.

“He used to be a hell of a fighter,” 44-year-old Cynthia Stoddard told the Sun Journal. “Around three years ago, he said, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore.’ He was a good guy. He was trying to get his life straightened out.”

Two groups clashed Tuesday on Knox Street after teenagers in a car reportedly drove past the park and shot pellets and BBs at a group gathered there, according to Sun Journal sources who said they witnessed the events.

Several people pursued the car from the park to Knox Street, where a melee broke out, the teens reportedly wielding sticks, bats and bricks, sources said.

Police are investigating to determine whether there were racial elements to the fight, an assertion made by many in the aftermath of the brawl.

“There were certainly different ethnic origins involved in the fight,” Lewiston police Lt. David St. Pierre said on Thursday. “I don’t know exactly how many. We get reports or I’ve seen on social media and other outlets that people are saying there are as many as 30 or 40 people from different ethnic backgrounds. I don’t know that to be accurate.”…
Afghanistan Eid Car Bomb, Claimed By Islamic State, Kills 26
Saturday, June 16, 2018 8:25 PM

From Reuters:
KABUL (Reuters) – A car bomb killed at least 26 people at a gathering of Taliban and Afghan armed forces in the eastern city of Nangarhar on Saturday, an official said, as soldiers and militants celebrated an unprecedented Eid ceasefire.

Islamic State claimed responsibility. The group’s Amaq news agency said the target was “a gathering of Afghan forces” but gave no details. The Taliban had already denied involvement.

Dozens of unarmed Taliban militants had earlier entered the Afghan capital and other cities to celebrate the end of the Ramadan fasting season. Soldiers and militants exchanged hugs and took selfies on their smartphones.

Attaullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor of Nangarhar, confirmed a car bomb was responsible for the blast in the town of Ghazi Aminullah Khan, on the main Torkham-Jalalabad road, and said that dozens were wounded. He had earlier said a rocket-propelled grenade was to blame.

The Taliban announced a surprise three-day ceasefire over the Eid holiday, which began on Friday, except against foreign forces. It overlaps with an Afghan government ceasefire which lasts until Wednesday….

Saturday, June 16, 2018 8:19 PM

From the Daily Mail:
A Muslim woman has been left fearing for her life after receiving death threats for posting an Instagram video of her dancing in a crop top.

Madina Basaeva shared the video, in which part of her naked stomach is revealed as she dances, on social media.

The blogger, who lives in Moscow and belongs to the Tadzhiki community, is wearing a yellow striped crop top and a matching pair of shorts in the 13-second long video.

Her Instagram video has been flooded with negative comments from fundamentalist Muslims who share her ethnic background and were not amused by her outfit.

One user, ‘umm.ma.96’, said: ‘Do not forget while chasing fame in this life, you will have to pay for it to Allah in the next one. Your naked belly button will cost you a lot.’

Another online commentator, che_95religion, said: ‘Someone kill her already’, and the user aminapoi098765 added: ‘When will you finally die?!’…
Germany: Muslim Migrant Stabs Woman To Death On Hanover Street
Saturday, June 16, 2018 8:06 PM

From Jihad Watch:
A culture of violence, the foundational text of which commands men to beat women from whom they “fear disobedience” (Qur’an 4:34), is going to give rise to this sort of thing, just as that same foundational text’s calls for violence against unbelievers (2:191, 4:89, 9:5, 9:29, 47:4, etc.) are going to give rise to jihad violence.

“POL-H: Supplementary report! Oststadt: 35-year-old dead after suffering stab injuries in a dispute – suspect arrested Bielefeld,” translated from “POL-H: Nachtragsmeldung! Oststadt: 35-Jährige nach Auseinandersetzung an Stichverletzungen verstorben – Tatverdächtiger in Bielefeld festgenommen,” Presse Portal, June 16, 2018 (thanks to Searchlight Germany):

Copts’ Homes Attacked After They Protest Muslim Men Swimming Naked In Front Of Them
Friday, June 15, 2018 8:42 PM

From World Watch Monitor:
Coptic houses were attacked in a village in Upper Egypt last week, after Copts objected to a group of young Muslim men swimming naked in a canal in front of their homes, as Coptic women sat outside.

The incident took place on 4 June in the village of Tarshoub, in Beni Suef governorate.

“A Muslim mob gathered around the homes of Christians across the canal and began pelting them with bricks and stones, while shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ [Allah is the greatest] and chanting slogans against Copts,” local Coptic resident Nashaat Ezzat told World Watch Monitor. “They broke the windows and doors of some houses, looted and destroyed some properties.”

Six Copts were injured and required stitches to their heads. According to Ezzat, police arrived at the scene three hours after the attack, arresting seven Copts and two Muslims. They were all released five days later, on the morning of 9 June….
Member Of All-Female IS Terror Cell Wanted To Die In Knife Attack, Court Told
Friday, June 15, 2018 8:30 PM

From the Daily Mail:
A member of Britain’s first all-female Islamic State terror cell ‘wanted to die’ in an attack on the Palace of Westminster, a court heard.

Rizlaine Boular, 22, planned to strike random members of the public to cause widespread panic, injury and death in April last year, the Old Bailey heard.

The mother-of-one adopted the murderous scheme from her sister Safaa Boular, 18, who was in custody over an attempt to become a jihadi bride in Syria the year before.

Counter-terrorism police swooped to arrest her after a proactive surveillance operation with MI5, the court has heard.

Rizlaine Boular has pleaded guilty to preparing acts of terrorism along with her mother Mina Dich, 44, from Vauxhall, south London, who helped her.

Her friend Khawla Barghouthi, 21, from Willesden, north-west London, has admitted failing to disclose the plot.

In mitigation, Rizlaine Boular’s lawyer Imran Khan QC said: ‘In short, Rizlaine Boular embarked on this course of conduct because she wanted to die.

‘She knew as soon as she produced a knife in the vicinity of the Palace of Westminster police officers would swoop and kill her, and that’s what she wanted at that time.’

He said she was radicalised online after being sacked from a marketing sales team for wearing Muslim clothes after three months.

She also suffered in an abusive marriage to a local imam after being prevented from travelling to Syria in 2014, he said.

On failed efforts to steer her away from IS, he said: ‘If there was Prevent intervention it was certainly not sufficient.

‘The intervention was not as robust as it could have been and should have been.’…

ISIS Calls For Lone Wolf Attacks At World Cup Games
Thursday, June 14, 2018 8:49 PM

From the Daily Mail:
ISIS fanatics have called for lone-wolf World Cup attacks in a chilling series of posters showing bomb blasts at venues in Russia.

One of the terror group’s mocked-up images shows flames engulfing a stadium and nearby facilities at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in the World Cup host city of Sochi, southern Russia.

Another calls for lone-wolf jihadists to ‘kill them all’ with the phrase written in French along with a picture of a knife slicing through a tournament logo against the backdrop of another Russian stadium.

A third shows an armed militant with the caption ‘the terror will begin’ and a fourth uses a clip of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing to call for a lone-wolf attack at football’s showpiece contest, according to the respected SITE Intelligence Group which monitors terror activity.

It comes as the World Cup gets underway on Thursday afternoon with hosts Russia taking on Saudi Arabia in Moscow’s Luzhinki Stadium.

Two Christians Ambushed, Killed In Central Nigeria
Thursday, June 14, 2018 8:44 PM

From Morning Star News:
JOS, Nigeria (Morning Star News) – Muslim Fulani herdsmen on Sunday (June 10) killed two Christians and seriously wounded another in central Nigeria as they made their way home from a church service, local sources said.

Ibrahim Weyi, 45, and Larry More, 53, were said to be hacked to death when herdsmen ambushed them at 7:40 p.m. as the Christians were going home on a motorcycle from an evening worship service in Plateau state’s Kwall village, in the Bassa area, Patience Moses told Morning Star News.

A third Christian, 23-year-old Samuel Weyi, was wounded in the attack, the local resident said. All three belong to the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Kwall, another resident, Lawerence Zango, told Morning Star News. Weyi is receiving treatment at an Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in Jos, he said.

“Fulani herdsmen have continued to kill innocent Christians in our villages, yet the Nigerian government has not taken proactive measures to end the onslaught,” Zango said.

A spokesman for the Plateau State Command, Mathias Tyopev, confirmed the attack and told Morning Star News that an investigation is underway.

Herdsmen attacks on Christian communities in the Bassa area intensified late last year and have continued in spite of the presence of military personnel, sources said. Since February, 11 Christians have lost their lives in the area at the hands of Muslim Fulani herdsmen, including the two killed on Sunday, said the Rev. Sunday Zibeh, pastor of the ECWA church in Nzharuvo, Miango.

“In these cases, the victims were either ambushed and killed by the herdsmen or attacked in their homes at night,” Pastor Zibeh told Morning Star News. “The sad reality is that the Nigerian government headed by President Muhammadu Buhari, himself a Muslim and a Fulani man, has not acted in any way to end these attacks.”

He gave the names of those killed as Adam Sunday, 38; Jatau Akus, 39; Chohu Awarhai and Marcus Mali, 22, all of Jebbu-Miango village. They were ambushed and killed by the herdsmen on April 18.

“The four victims were construction workers working on site when they were attacked,” he said.

In March two other Christians, 17-year-old Lumumbah Chayi and Joseph Alli, 23, were killed in Jebbu-Miango and Rotsu villages, he said.

“Joseph was attacked and beheaded at about 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 15 in Rotsu village, while Chayi, a high school student, was murdered on Monday, March 12, at about 7 p.m. by the Fulani herdsmen in Kwall village,” he said….
Asylum Seeker Raped Disabled Belgian Woman For Three Days Hoping For Anchor Baby
Thursday, June 14, 2018 8:33 PM

Vile, vile, vile.

From Breitbart:
A 30-year-old asylum seeker in Belgium has been sentenced to four years imprisonment after he raped a mentally disabled woman hoping to get her pregnant so he could use the child as an excuse to remain in the country.

The migrant, named Karim, met with the 19-year-old girl in November 2014 in the city of Liege and held her for three days at a squat where he was living, raping her repeatedly, Belgian newspaper La Dernière Heure reports.

The mother of the girl, who despite being 19 is said to have a mental capacity equal to a seven or eight-year-old child, told the court that 30-year-old Karim wanted to get the girl pregnant as he had previously been deported from the country and banned from living there for six years.

Karim actively prevented the girl from using any sort of contraception and accompanied her to a medical clinic to see if she had become pregnant, the victim’s mother said in testimony…..

The case echoes other similar attacks across Europe in recent years. In September 2016, outraged residents in the Swedish town of Visby took to the streets in protest after it was revealed that a group of five asylum seekers had raped a wheelchair-bound woman and were released from custody only days later.

In April 2017, an 18-year-old Somali migrant in the German town of Neuenhaus was charged with raping a paralysed 59-year-old man after breaking into a care home. He then raped a second man in another room and killed the man’s 87-year-old wife because she had witnessed the assault…

United States: Jewish Parents Outraged At All Day Anti-Semitic, Anti-Israel Event
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 8:36 PM

From Americans for Tolerance and Peace:
Angry parents and citizens dominated the first hour of a scheduled Newton Public School board meeting on Monday night, in an effort to show their disgust and rage at the continued teaching of bias against Israel that has been the focus of controversy in this leafy, heavily Jewish suburb for more than 5 years.

Waving signs of “Fire Fleishman!” and “Replace Goldman!”, around 70 angry citizens protested the mistreatment of the Jewish community by city officials the evening of June 11.

Ruth Goldman, Chair of the Committee, restricted discussion of the controversy to only 7 speakers from among those who came to protest the on-going defamation of Israel and Jews in Newton’s school rooms. More than 15 had signed up to speak.

Charles Jacobs, president of Americans for Peace and Tolerance, reminded the board that Mayor Ruthanne Fuller had promised the Jewish community “transparency” in what is being taught at the schools, but she has not delivered. This, after the school system was forced to remove from its curriculum the Arab World Studies Notebook, which falsely taught students that Jews torture and murder Arab women in Israeli prisons; and after the School Superintendent David Fleishman had promised Jewish community leaders this past October that he would remove the schools’ entire World History section on the Middle East until scholarly, vetted material was found to replace it. Instead, Jacobs said, Fleishman broke that promise and continued to use material that was pro-Arab, anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic.

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 Abunimah’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.”

That very morning, one very liberal Jewish group — the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) — abandoned its six-year-long denial and “hands-off” posture in this dispute and joined Boston’s ADL to send a harshly-worded letter to Superintendent Fleishman demanding to know precisely what happened on May 2 and what was taught to the student assembly and how it happened.

Tom Mountain, Chairman of the Newton Republican Committee and father of a student in the Newton school system, thundered his disgust at the School Committee’s betrayal of the schools’ Jewish students, and the Jewish community in general. He directly demanded the dismissal of Superintendent Fleishman and asked, rather loudly, what sort of Jew could stonewall efforts to protect teenagers, mostly Jewish, from being taught rabid anti-Jewish propaganda.

Aaron Shneider, a new college graduate and alumnus of the Newton school system himself, railed at the committee, spoke of how the system had betrayed him, and that if everyone wants to speak of “balance,” then pro-Muslim and anti-Israel is hardly “balance” in educational presentation….

UAE Residents Want Chef Fired For Tweet They Say Is Anti-Islam
Tuesday, June 12, 2018 8:54 PM

From Khaleej Times:
The UAE residents are calling for the sacking of a Michelin-star chef in Dubai for his “anti-Islam tweet”. Atul Kochhar, head chef of the popular Rang Mahal Indian restaurant at the JW Marriot Marquis hotel, received flak after taking a dig at Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra for her tweet over a Quantico episode that portrayed Hindu nationalists as terrorists.

“It’s sad to see that you have not respected the sentiments of Hindus who have been terrorized by Islam over 2000 years. Shame on You (sic),” Kochhar wrote. He later deleted the tweet and put out an apology, saying the “major error” was “made in the heat of the moment on Sunday”.

“There is no justification for my tweet … I fully recognise my inaccuracies that Islam was founded round 1400 years ago and I sincerely apologise. I am not Islamophobic, I deeply regret my comments that have offended many.”

JW Marriot hotel distanced itself from the chef’s comments. “We are aware of the comments made by Chef Atul Kochhar. We would like to stress that we do not share the same views as stated in the remark, nor is it a representation of the culture of diversity and inclusion that we pride ourselves on at the hotel,” tweeted JW Marriot Marquis on Monday.

Shariah: Niger Revokes Licences Of Liquor Dealers
Monday, June 11, 2018 8:47 PM

From This Day:
The Niger State Government has revoked all the licences issued to liquor dealers throughout the state.

The Niger State Liquor Licensing Board, the body charged with the responsibility of regulating the sale and consumption of alcohol, announced this in a statement signed by its chairman, Malam Muhammad Shafii.

The state government had in 2000 introduced the Sharia legal system in the state under which sale and consumption of alcohol and related beverages in restricted areas of major town and cities in the state were prohibited.

Under the law, the sale and consumption of alcohol are restricted to eight kilometres from each of the city centre.

But in a U-turn on Monday, the state government banned the outright sale and consumption of alcohol in any part of the state.

In the statement in Minna, Shafii said liquor vendors caught contravening the order would not only be arrested but prosecuted.

The statement asked law enforcement agents to implement the directive by arresting and prosecuting offenders.

To give vent to the new policy, two major liquor dealers in the state were arrested over the weekend and would be charged to court soon….

The rape of a city teen at the hands of three men ended when she threatened to bite off the penis of one of her assailants, court heard Wednesday.

In a videotaped interview played at the trial of two of her alleged attackers, the then-14-year-old told a child abuse detective the trio took turns sexually assaulting her in the bathroom of a city home.

But after all three had forced themselves on her one tried to make her perform oral sex, she told Det. Mike Ruark in the Aug. 21, 2014 interview.

“After the third guy was done, he didn’t leave the bathroom,” the teen said in the recording, which the now-18-year-old watched from a remote witness room.

“All three of them came in the bathroom while I was still laying down on the floor….

She had earlier told Ruark she agreed over social media to hang out with one of the trio before a group of four men picked her up outside her southeast Calgary home.

In the May 2014 incident one of the four refused to participate in the actions of the others, she said.

After being picked up, she was driven to a residence where they drank rum and smoked some pot.

At one point, one of the men asked her to sit on his lap. After she declined a few times, he persisted.

He then took her upstairs and into the bathroom before forcing himself on her….

On trial on charges of sexual assault and sexual contact with a minor are Abas Ibrahim and Omar Kromah….

“Our government agreed not to stamp the passports of some of them because they were on transit flights for two hours, and they were resuming their flights without having their passports stamped. However their movements were under the complete supervision of the Iranian intelligence,” Larijani was quoted as saying.

The remarks represent the first time senior Iranian officials have publicly admitted to aiding al Qaeda and playing a direct role in facilitating the 9/11 attacks.

The U.S. government has long accused Iran of playing a role in the attacks and even fined the Islamic Republic billions as a result. The U.S. 9/11 Commission assembled to investigate the attacks concluded that Iran played a role in facilitating the al Qaeda terrorists.

Larijani admitted that Iranian officials did not stamp the passports of the al Qaeda militants in order to obfuscate their movements and prevent detection by foreign governments. Al Qaeda operative also were given safe refuge in Iran….
