Disgusting… A man in Iran was sentenced to be blind in one eye, a Sharia Court ruled.

Disgusting…

A man in Iran was sentenced to be blind in one eye, a Sharia Court ruled.

And people want Sharia Law in America? Hell no.

Here are 10 ten things Sharia Law calls for, tell me if you agree with them:
10. Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped.
9. Islam allows husbands to hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives.
8. Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge—physical eye for physical eye.
7. Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off.
6. Islam commands that highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated.
5. Islam commands that homosexuals must be executed.
4. Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death.
3. Islam orders death for Muslim and possible death for non—Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran and even sharia itself.
2. Islam orders apostates to be killed.
1. Islam commands offensive and aggressive and unjust jihad

Iran hangs three more people for being homosexual. | Vlad Tepes

Here is a link to the story, and below, a video where a Nobel Peace Prize winner explains how Iran , thanks to Islam, does not value women and other groups and so causes them a great deal of misery. H/T Shabnam …

Iran has executed by hanging three men for the crime of having gay sex, early on Sunday morning, September 4th. The three men were officially executed for “forbidden acts against religion,” as Iran does not acknowledge the existence of homosexuality, which is also officially a crime.

AFP reports:

Two convicted rapists and a drug smuggler were sent to the gallows in the same prison.

The latest hangings bring to 180 the number of executions reported in Iran so far this year, according to an AFP tally based on media and official reports.

Iranian media reported 179 hangings last year but international human rights groups say the actual number was much higher, ranking the Islamic republic second only to China in the number of people it executed in 2010.

Tehran says the death penalty is essential to maintain law and order, and it is applied only after exhaustive judicial proceedings.

Murder, rape, armed robbery, drug trafficking and adultery are among the crimes punishable by death in Iran.

Iran Human Rights (IHR) also reports,

The men were identified as: “M. T.”, “T. T.” and “M. Ch.” (age not mentioned for any of them) and besides being convicted of sodomy, had also committed other offences such as kidnapping and robbery, said the report.

Condemning the executions, the spokesperson of Iran Human Rights (IHR), Mahmood Amiry-?Moghaddam, said:”Yesterday’s executions for sodomy might be among the rare cases were the Iranian authorities admit to having executed men convicted of homosexual acts”. He added: “Iranian authorities normally present such cases as rape, but rape as not been mentioned in this case”.

IHR is currently investigating the case of the three men executed for sodomy.

According to ISNA, the three others executed in Ahvaz today, were “A. H.” convicted of keeping and trafficking of 6309 grams of heroin, and “J. N.” and “A. Sh.” convicted of rape and robbery.

The report didn’t mention the age of those who were executed.

Amiry-?Moghaddam warned about a new wave of executions scheduled for the coming weeks in Iran. He said: “After a short break in the executions due to the Holy month of Ramadan, we have received reports about many scheduled executions in the coming days and weeks in Iran”. Amiry-?Moghaddam added: “Many of the scheduled executions are planned to be carried out publically”.

The Advocate adds,

Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad once famously told a reporter during a news conference that, ”In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in your country. We don’t have that in our country. In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon. I don’t know who’s told you that we have it.”

Holocaust is 100% a Scam, 9/11 Made in USA, Anne Frank Real, but Memoir Fake


http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2011/jul/5/egypt-party-leader-holocaust-is-a-lie/

Egypt party leader: Holocaust is ‘a lie’

9/11 was ‘made in USA,’ he says

By Ben Birnbaum
The Washington Times
8:37 p.m., Tuesday, July 5, 2011

BUDAPEST — A leader of Egypt’s top secular party says the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks were “made in the USA,” the Holocaust is “a lie” and Anne Frank’s memoir is “a fake” — comments sure to roil the post-revolution political debate in the Arab world’s most populous country.

Ahmed Ezz El-Arab, a vice chairman of Egypt’s Wafd Party, made the remarks in an exclusive interview with The Washington Times last week while in the Hungarian capital attending the Conference on Democracy and Human Rights.

He denied that the Nazis killed 6 million Jews during World War II.

“The Holocaust is a lie” Mr. Ezz El-Arab said. “The Jews under German occupation were 2.4 million. So if they were all exterminated, where does the remaining 3.6 million come from?”

Mr. Ezz El-Arab said he accepted that the Nazis killed “hundreds of thousands” of Jews. “But gas chambers and skinning them alive and all this? Fanciful stories,” he added. (AUDIO: on the Holocaust)

Mr. Ezz El-Arab also attacked the authenticity of “The Diary of Anne Frank,” which he said he studied as a doctoral student in Stockholm. “I could swear to God it’s a fake,” the Wafd leader said. “The girl was there, but the memoirs are a fake.”

Established in 1919 and disbanded in 1952, the Wafd Party was refounded in 1983 under reforms instituted by then-President Hosni Mubarak to allow token opposition to his dominant National Democratic Party.

After Mr. Mubarak’s ouster in February, Wafd emerged as arguably the second-most powerful political party to the Muslim Brotherhood, a formerly banned Islamist group.

Last month, Wafd announced it would run jointly with the Brotherhood and 16 other blocs in September’s parliamentary elections to present a united front as Egypt forges a new government.

“For four years, in alliance, we can build a constitution based on certain principles that guarantee human rights, citizenship, no religious trend whatsoever,” Mr. Ezz El-Arab said. “Once this is established, everybody can go to the ballot box and try his luck.”

Many in Israel have expressed concern that a democratic Egypt might cancel its 1979 peace treaty with Israel.

But Mr. Ezz El-Arab, who chairs Wafd’s foreign-relations committee, said there is “no chance at all” that would happen. “Egypt will not go to war unless it’s attacked,” he said.

As for Iran, with whom Egypt is normalizing relations, Mr. Ezz El-Arab assailed President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who also has denied the Holocaust.

“He’s a hateful character, so whatever he says can be criticized,” the Wafd leader said. “What he says about the Holocaust is true, but he doesn’t say it because it’s true. He says it out of hatred to the Israeli state.”

Mr. Ahmadinejad hosted a Holocaust-denial conference in 2006 to protest the ban in many European countries on questioning the Nazi genocide — laws that Mr. Ezz El-Arab criticized.

“It’s a shame that the West — the cradle of liberalism — should have a criminal law incriminating any discussion of any historical fact,” Mr. Ezz El-Arab said. “It’s a sacred cow. The ‘6 million’ is a sacred cow.”

Amr Bargisi, a former Wafd youth leader, said that while Mr. Ezz El-Arab himself does not have a major constituency in Egypt or within the party itself, his views on the Holocaust do.

“The vast majority of Egyptians think the Holocaust never happened,” Mr. Bargisi told The Times. “The fact that his presence in the party hierarchy hasn’t caused any objections tells you something about the farcical nature of Egyptian politics.”

In the interview, Mr. Ezz El-Arab also said that Osama bin Laden was not behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“He could not have the know-how or the ability to do it,” he said, even though he called the dead al Qaeda leader “an American agent.”

“If he had the ability, one plane only landing on the Knesset would give more effect,” Mr. Ezz El-Arab said.

Asked who was responsible for the attacks, Mr. Ezz El-Arab identified the CIA, Israel’s Mossad intelligence service, and the “military-industrial complex.” (AUDIO: on 9/11)

Mr. Ezz El-Arab spoke of “the intelligent American elite that is ruling” and said it had responded to the “disaster” of President George W. Bush by electing Barack Obama president: “Obama is a nice face that has been brought up, the black rabbit taken out of the American hat when it was needed.” (AUDIO: on President Obama)

Mr. Ezz El-Arab also claimed that, during the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, “American soldiers with double Israeli nationality and Jewish religion” stole Jewish antiquities from the Babylonian exile period and had them reburied in Jerusalem to cement the Jewish historical claim on the city.

“It’s not a kind of monument robbery for selling in the black market,” he said. “The things they took from Babel, they took with the intention — to my judgment — of digging it under the Aqsa mosque [site of Jerusalem’s Temple Mount] so that when it’s discovered, they say, ‘Here was the temple.’ ” (AUDIO: on ‘double Israeli nationality’)

Despite the claim, Mr. Ezz El-Arab said he thinks that there once was a Jewish temple in Jerusalem and that Israeli Jews deserve to stay put.

“The Jews are there,” he said. “Good or bad, they are there. You cannot as a human being think of exterminating 6 million or 5 million or whatever. That’s crazy.”

Featured Article: The Jewish Democrat

The Jewish Democrat

This guest post was written by K. Nani, who has a social worker degree and is planning on extending her education by using the resources at onlineclasses.net.

In the 2008 presidential election, 75% of Jewish Americans voted for the liberal candidate, Barack Obama. Aside from African-Americans, 95% of whom voted Democratic, Jews were the ethnic group most fervently supporting the liberal candidate. The high number should have come as no shock. Historically, Jewish Americans have zealously voted democratic, and they’ve done so at similar to the ones from the past presidential election.

But what was surprising about this particular election is that it seemed they were voting against their best interests, more so than ever. Republican candidate John McCain long had a history of supporting Israel, an endeavor Obama does not back so emphatically. Also, Jews are one of the more financially prosperous minority groups in the United States, yet they voted against their own financial interests, choosing the liberal who wanted to repeal the Bush administration’s tax-cuts for the wealthy.

The 2008 election is certainly not the first time Jews have voted against their best interests by voting democratic. Some critics point out that it is as if Jews equate “Judaism” with “liberalism.” How they got there is far more complex.

In the controversial, compelling novel Why Are Jews Liberals?, neoconservative author Norman Podhoretz traces the roots of Jewish liberalness all the way back to the Crusades. All the atrocities of medieval times as the result of persecution — the Crusades, disenfranchisment, the Inquisition, exile — were conducted out of an intolerance for the Jewish religion by devoutly Christian authorities. Couple that with the Dreyfus Affair and Nazism and it’s no wonder Jews are wary of conservatives, particularly Christian ones.

But to point to events hundreds of years old as the root of modern Jewish liberalism would be too far-sighted. The post-World War II wave of Jewish immigration has more to do with it I think. Jewish immigrants aligned themselves with the Democratic party because of its similarity to the progressive parties they supported in Europe. Many Jews were budding socialists and saw, through the New Deal and other post-depression measures, a party more in line with those aims. They went with what was familiar, and what had served their best interests in the past. Also, Democrat President Harry Truman helped immensely in the creation of the Israeli State. His was the party that supported Israel first, even if their support has waned over the years.

During the Civil Rights movement, the Democratic party stood up for the oppressed minorities of the nation. An end was put to legal discrimination and harassment. This was most certainly a cause dear to any Jew’s heart. Rather than a government party encouraging and even running persecution based on ethnic grounds, this time, the liberals actively worked to start to put an end to it. On a historical level, the effort resonated with the American Jewish community.

Though one of the generally wealthier sectors of the population, Jews continue to vote against their pocketbooks. One large reason for this: Jewish families insist on higher education for their children. Following the widespread trend, those who are more educated overwhelmingly have liberal tendencies and vote for progressive candidates. More Jews attend college than in other ethnic groups, and so vote Democratic.

Lastly, it is only normal for children to have the same political views as their parents. Having been taught progressive tendencies since a young age, this doctrine is ingrained in their political conscience. Today, Jewish Americans follow the views — and teachings — of those who came generations before them. Jewish liberalness is influenced by factors stemming from mere decades ago, but also just as much by events that took place over the last several hundred years.

Clinton Refuses to Answer My Questions About Gaza Flotilla, page 1

Discusion about Clinton Refuses to Answer My Questions About Gaza Flotilla in the AboveTopSecret.com website alternative topics discussion forum Breaking Alternative News.

How the Obama regime completely ignores request from outstanding patriots such as Ann Wright is disturbing. It is very clear who their masters are and where there priorities are. Hint: not the american people.

Here is the full letter:

Dear Secretary of State Clinton,

I am a retired US Army reserve colonel with 29 years in the US Army and Army Reserves, and a former US diplomat who resigned after 16 years in the US State Department in opposition to the war on Iraq.

I was one of fourteen American citizens on the Gaza flotilla.

On June 14, 2010, I delivered to the Bureau of Consular Affairs, Office of American Citizen Services a letter to you requesting investigation of the Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla in which one unarmed American citizen was killed by Israeli commandos and fourteen other American citizens were kidnapped from international waters and taken to Israel against their will, imprisoned, and their personal possessions stolen by Israeli commandos.

Despite numerous inquiries to the State Department about the status of the response to my letter, after seven weeks I have not received a response to the letter, nor to the 80 questions that I requested that the United States government pose to the Israeli government concerning their attack on the Gaza flotilla.

As an American citizen, I am distressed that no one in the State Department government will respond to this request for assistance.

As a former US diplomat who worked for 16 years in the State Department and served in Nicaragua, Grenada, Somalia, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Sierra Leone, Micronesia, Afghanistan (I helped reopen the US Embassy in December, 2001) and Mongolia, and who received an award for heroism from the State Department for actions during the evacuation of the US Embassy and the international community during the Sierra Leone civil war, I am deeply saddened by the lack of professionalism in my former organization in responding to such a request.

Now that your daughter Chelsea’s wedding is over, could you please ask the State Department’s inspector general to determine why after seven weeks there has been no response to my June 14, 2010 letter?

Could you also determine if the State Department has made a demarche to the Israeli government concerning the circumstances surrounding the commandos deadly shooting of unarmed 19-year-old American citizen Furkan Dogan, who was shot 5 times, several times to the head?

Of much less importance, but still of concern because of evidence contained, I want to know if a demarch was made for the return of our personal possessions, including cameras, cellphones and computers taken when the Israeli commandos forcefully boarded all six of the ships in the flotilla.

We returned to the United States with the clothes on our backs and our passports. Despite lists of our possessions being given to US consular officers during a June 2 visit to us while we were in prison in Israel, and to US consular officers in Istanbul, Turkey, during our brief stay after being deported from Israel and to American Citizen Services officials at the State Department in Washington, DC, virtually nothing has been returned to us (I did receive a diary sent from the US Consulate in Istanbul, but nothing else – no computer, camera, cellphone, clothing, handbag, address book, $800 in cash, backpack, suitcase, etc.). Phone calls in Israel have been made on cellphones in the possession of the Israeli government.

In case the State Department bureaucracy did not make you aware of my June 14, 2010, letter to you, I am copying it for you below.

Signed,

Ann Wright, former US diplomat and retired US Army Reserve Colonel

—–

June 14, 2010

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
Department of State
Washington, DC 20001

Dear Secretary Clinton,

I am a retired US Army reserve colonel and a former US diplomat (deputy chief of mission at U.S. Embassies in Sierra Leone, Micronesia, Afghanistan and Mongolia) who resigned in March 2003 in opposition to the war on Iraq.

I was one of twelve US citizens that were on the Gaza Flotilla. I have just returned to the United States from having been kidnapped and imprisoned by the Israeli government.

I appeal to you to institute a US investigation into the murder by Israeli military forces of American citizen Furkan Dogan, a 19-year-old high school student on the Mavi Marmara ship.

I also ask that the United States demand the return of one US-flagged vessels that were seized in international waters in an act of international piracy by the Israeli military.

I ask that the State Department assist in the location of the personal possessions that were stolen from American citizens in international waters by the Israeli military including computers, cameras, cell phones, identification, credit cards (one credit card has been used in Israel for over $20,000 in purchases), clothing, miscellaneous items such as notebooks, diaries and other personal papers.

I also ask that the United States demand that the Israeli government cooperate with the offer of the European Union to inspect ships and cargo destined for Gaza, which would allow the siege to end and commerce to begin.

I ask that an investigation into whether US made military equipment or equipment purchased with/through US funding was used in the attacks on the six civilian, unarmed vessels, and if so, that sanctions against Israel available through the U.S. Arms and Export Control Act be implemented.

I am attaching a list of 80 questions that an inquiry should answer. The list of questions comes from Uri Averny, who heads the Israeli human rights organization Gush Shalom.

I also ask that US funding for the reconstruction of Gaza be disbursed immediately. There are many non-governmental organizations in Gaza that can assist in the reconstruction activities if they have funding.

Sincerely,

Ann Wright
