Islamabad, Pakistan: The investigation into the murder of a young girl at the Air Force Complex, E-9, took a stunning turn when the victim’s younger brother alleged that their father was the killer. According to him, his father threw the dead body from the apartment and later lodged an FIR with the Margalla Police Station against the unidentified assailants.
Musarrat Ahmad, 16, was found dead with multiple wounds in different parts of her body and a broken arm near her apartment.
The Air Force official allegedly tortured his teenage daughter to death over the ‘honour issue’, beating her with an iron rod and a cricket bat and kept hitting her head, stomach and back till her death, the investigators, quoting his confessional statement, told ‘The News’.
On June 5, 2013, Ahmad Yar, assistant warrant officer of Pakistan Air Force, a resident of Block A-62/5, PAF Colony, E-9, Islamabad, lodged a complaint with the Margalla Police Station, saying that his wife left for her village Lalian (Chiniot) with his younger daughter a few days before the occurrence. He said that his daughter Musarrat Ahmad, 16, went missing on the night of June 4. He said that he searched her along with his two sons — Mohammad Asad, 14, and Asfandyar, 12. According to him, he was informed by the PAF guard deputed at the main gate at 10:20 p.m. that his daughter had entered alone into the premises of the PAF Complex from the main gate, but she didn’t reach home till the next morning and found dead near Block 23-J.
The Air Force Police reached the scene and shifted the dead body to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) after sealing the premises, police said.
The Margalla Police took up the case and registered an FIR (No. 313) under Section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) and started investigation, police said.
SP (Saddar Zone) Jamil Hashmi, when contacted, confirmed the report saying that it was a confusing case but police solved the case. He said that they included the complainant, his wife Sahib Bibi and their two sons — Asad and Asfandyar — in the investigation. He said that it was confusing for police — how the girl disappeared between the main gate and her apartment.
The SP said that the complainant did not confess to committing the murder, however his wife expressed her suspicion over her husband and indicated the real story as her son Asad had disclosed the truth before her.
Police induced Asad, an eyewitness, for telling the truth who, finally exposed his father as killer of his sister, Jamil Hashmi said. He added that Asad, telling the real story, disclosed that Musarrat left the house without informing anybody during loadshedding at about 10 p.m. He said that he along with his father and brother searched her in parks and other areas, including the hospital, but failed to find her. In the meantime, his father received a call from the guard of the main gate who informed that Musarrat had entered into the complex. As she reached home, the angry father started thrashing her, hitting her head and body with a cricket bat and an iron rod. Consequently, she fell down and died on the spot. Later, he put cloth on her face, picked her up and threw her on the ground near Block 23-J, Jamil Hashmi said, adding that Ahmad Yar later confessed to his crime and recorded his statement before the court of law under Section 164 CrPC.
Police have registered a case against Ahmad Yar on the complaint of his wife, Sahib Bibi, the SP concluded.

21-year-old Andrew Pochter, an intern at an educational NGO, murdered in Alexandria as he watched clashes
An American Jewish college student, Andrew Driscoll Pochter, 21, a native of Chevy Chase, Maryland, was killed in Alexandria, Egypt on Friday as he watched clashes between supporters and opponents of the country’s Islamist president, it was confirmed Saturday.
Pochter, one of three people killed in Friday’s clashes, was stabbed to death by a protester, his family said.
Originally reported to have been an employee of the American cultural center in Alexandria, Pochter was later identified by his parents and university, Ohio’s Kenyon College, as an intern at AMIDEAST, a nonprofit organization devoted to promoting education in the Middle East and North Africa.
“Our beloved 21-year-old son and brother Andrew Driscoll Pochter went to Alexandria for the summer, to teach English to 7- and 8-year-old Egyptian children and to improve his Arabic. He was looking forward to returning to Kenyon College for his junior year and to spending his spring semester in Jordan,” Pochter’s parents told CNN.
“As we understand it, he was witnessing the protest as a bystander and was stabbed by a protester. He went to Egypt because he cared profoundly about the Middle East, and he planned to live and work there in the pursuit of peace and understanding. Andrew was a wonderful young man looking for new experiences in the world and finding ways to share his talents while he learned. Andrew cared deeply about his family and his friends. We won’t have any further comment and ask for privacy now at this difficult time for the family.”
Marcela Colmenares, a Venezuelan scholar at Kenyon College who was a friend of Pochter’s, paid tribute to him in her blog Saturday, saying he exemplified the “difference between a talker and a doer.”
Andrew Driscoll Pochter, 21, of Chevy Chase, Md. died Friday, June 28, while photographing clashes between opponents and supporters of President Mohamed Morsi in Alexandria, Egypt.
Colmenares related her first meeting with Pochter in the college library, where they became caught up in a political argument and discovered their mutual interest in the Middle East.
“The last time we spoke, he was already in Egypt and we agreed to eat a falafel in August, when he would come back to Maryland. After a long discussion, he planned to prove that — against my predictions — the falafels in Adams Morgan were better than those in Berlin,” wrote Colmenares.
“But he is never going to come back, because he was killed in a protest in Alexandria, where he was — according to the news — teaching English during the summer. In fact, Andrew was doing much more than teaching English, he was absorbing every bit of the Egyptian culture, he was learning about the Middle East, and he was doing what so many people avoid — following his passion,” she wrote.
In 2011, Pochter wrote an article for Al Arabiya on the effects of the Arab Spring on Moroccan society. He was an active member of a group of Kenyon students interested in the Middle East, was involved in Middle East activism on campus and took part in a forum Colmenares had created for students willing to discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and collaborate to organize events.
Pochter was also active with Hillel, the Jewish campus organization.
“I don’t know the details about his death, and I don’t want to know them,” Colmenares wrote.
“But I know that it was provoked by an unreasonable amount of hate, a hate that does not have owners and that will never have a proper explanation –because it is irrational. This hate managed to kill an American who genuinely cared about the Middle East, and who would have had an extremely positive impact on the region. Violence is increasing in Egypt, especially towards Americans,” she lamented.

Late Friday, Alexandria security chief Gen. Amin Ezz Eddin told Al-Jazeera TV that an American later identified as Pochtor was killed in Sidi Gabr Square while photographing the battle. The US State Department later confirmed the death, in a statement from Patrick Ventrell, a press office director.
“We are providing appropriate consular assistance from our Embassy in Cairo and our Bureau of Consular Affairs at the State Department,” he said.
An Egyptian medical official, in an earlier unconfirmed report, had said Pochtor died of gunshot wounds at a hospital. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press.
In the aftermath of Friday’s deadly clashes, the US State Department issued a travel warning cautioning citizens to avoid Egypt.
“The US Department of State warns US citizens traveling to or living in Egypt to defer non-essential travel to Egypt at this time due to the continuing possibility of political and social unrest. On June 28, 2013, the Department of State authorized the departure of a limited number of non-emergency employees and family members. US citizens are urged to remain alert to local security developments and to be vigilant regarding their personal security,” the warning read.
Christian in Crisis
Nadia, a recent Christian convert in Tajikistan, is experiencing severe persecution at the hands of her Muslim family members. Nadia converted from Islam to Christianity in 2011 and was then baptized. After her mother found out, she beat Nadia, burned her Bible, and tore her clothing. Nadia tried to run away, but her brothers found her. They shaved her head, gave her a public beating, and then locked her in the house. When she ran away a second time, they unfortunately caught her again.
Nadia called a Voice of the Martyrs contact on June 9th, sobbing, saying that her family had beaten her again, this time for hours, and forced her to say the Muslim statement of faith. The VOM contact has since been unable to reach Nadia by phone as her family most likely had it disconnected.

We have just received word that Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carrol of the English Defence League were both arrested on their way to Woolwich to lay flowers at the site where Lee Rigby was murdered.
They were both detained on suspicion of obstructing police as they attempted to enter the London borough of Tower Hamlets on the way to Woolwich.
As we receive more news on this story, we will update it here:
17-year-old was found naked in a garden in the Tepe district of Marmaris
He is said to be in a critical condition at hospital
Two men have been arrested after a huge police manhunt
Comes as two men died after drowning at different beaches in Olundeniz
A British teenager has been left fighting for his life after he was stripped naked and ‘stabbed 17 times’ during an attack in a Turkish holiday resort.
The British teenager, named as Dwaine Ward, was found in a garden in the Tepe district of Marmaris, a popular holiday haunt for British tourists. Two men have now been arrested in connection with the incident.
The 17-year-old was discovered on Tuesday with at least 10 stab wounds to the body and
taken to the intensive care unit of the Marmaris State Hospital. He is reportedly in a critical condition.
Attila Dincer, 26, who works cleaning cars in the area near to where Dwaine was found, is now being questioned in relation to the incident.
He was arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning and shortly after Ismail A, 24, from Aksaray, was arrested on a bus in Konya, 354 miles away.
Suspect: Attila Dincer (blue T-shirt) is led away by police. He is being questioned in connection with the stabbing of 17-year-old Dwaine Ward in the Turkish resort town of Marmaris
Attila Dincer, 26, who works cleaning cars in the area near to where Dwaine was found, is now being questioned in relation to the incident.
He was arrested in the early hours of Thursday morning and shortly after Ismail A, 24, from Aksaray, was arrested on a bus in Konya, 354 miles away
Using information believed to have come from Dincer, Turkish police in Mugla liased with other forces across the country – tracking Ismail on a bus heading for his home town.
Ismail was taken from the bus at Konya and is being transferred back to Marmaris to undergo questioning.
Mr Ward’s blood-stained, naked body was spotted and photographed lying in a garden at around 7.30am on Tuesday by local residents.
They called the emergency services and a doctor managed to stabilize the teenager at the scene before he was rushed to intensive care.
Marmaris police immediately launched a major investigation into the alleged attack and
all leave was cancelled as they desperately tried to track down the attackers.
Within 48 hours police had checked 217 cameras covering the town’s Bar Street and surrounding areas.
Careful examination of the camera’s showed Dwayne leaving Bar Street and then a few hundred yards further on two men were seen following him and taking hold of his arms.
According to police and hospital reports Dwaine had been stabbed more than a dozen times including twice in the throat and several times in the chest. It is said to have pierced his heart.
It is said he had also been stabbed in the groin, legs and back and his arms had been slashed with a razor.
Ismail A, 24, the second suspect being questioned. He was arrested on a bus in Konya, 354 miles from Marmaris
The attack took place after the young man and his older brother, said to be 32, had been out drinking in the town’s Bar Street on Monday night.
The brothers had reportedly become separated among the crowds and Darren had returned to their hotel alone.
The brothers are believed to be on holiday with their mother- staying at the privately run Ali Baba Otel close to the town’s busy market place.
Speaking from the Ali Baba Otel, yesterday morning his mother said: ‘Dwaine’s facing another operation this morning. His dad’s flying out from the UK to be with him.
‘I’m too distressed to talk about it.’
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) confirmed hospitalisation of the teenager.
It comes as two British men, one named locally as Anthony Gissing and the second whose identity has not been released, died after drowning at different beaches in Mugla’s Olundeniz district.
It has been reported that the incidents all occurred within 24 hours of each other on Turkey’s southern coast.
Two British men are believed to have died in separate drowning incidents in Turkey, while a teenager is fighting for his life after he was stabbed ten times
People on Belcekiz beach called paramedics after noticing that a body – believed to be that of Mr Gissing – was floating in the sea without moving.
He was taken to a local hospital but could not be saved, it is said.
On Olundeniz’s Kumburnu beach, officers brought another male body, said to be that of a ‘Mr Webb’, ashore after noticing him in the sea.
Paramedics arrived on the scene, but he was also declared dead.
The bodies of both tourists were sent to the Muğla Forensics Department.
It is not yet clear how the men drowned.
Firebrand Lebanese Sunni cleric Ahmed al-Assir has turned his mosque into a military base, exclusive Al Arabiya footage shows.
The Lebanese army took control of Abra, an area which is home to the Bilal bin Rabah mosque where Assir leads Friday prayers, after fighting on Monday that killed 17 soldiers and 50 Assir loyalists in the southern city of Sidon, a Lebanese military source said.
The footage shows the mosque was used to store weapons and ammunition, including hidden stashes discovered by the army.
Barrels filled with sand placed at the entrance of the mosque and around its circumference made it look like a military barricade.
The whereabouts of the cleric are unknown.
“The battle has ended after the army took full control over the area and after the escape of” Assir, a military source told Al Arabiya.
Meanwhile, military sources told Al Arabiya on Tuesday that about 110 Assir loyalists were arrested. The military is also combing areas that his followers are known to frequent.
editorial footnote: The word “mosque” means fortress. Historically speaking, mosques and majids have been utilized as storage facilities for everything from, small arms and ammunitions to missiles, chemical weapons and weapons of mass destruction. Mosques are often used as bases of operations for Islamic Jihadists to attack surrounding communities when the order comes down from above. Traditionally, mosques have been used for this purpose for many reasons although in Western nations such as the U.K., Canada, the U.S. and Australia there is an added element. Utilizing the mosque as an armory for weapons storage allows the Islamic community a method of circumventing host nation laws and provides a degree of separation and autonomy between the muslims in the community and the weapons being stored.
Additionally, mosques, majids and Islamic centers in recent history have fabricated a notion that “non-muslims” are not to come on the property of a mosque. That somehow, this is considered a desecration and show of disrespect. That is a complete false-hood that was created simply to keep Western military personnel from entering and seizing their weapon stockpiles. There is absolutely no mention in al-qur’an of any such rule. Western governments tend to make many mistakes in their efforts to cater to the Islamic communities in their Western nations. One of the gravest mistakes they are making is affording mosques, madrassas, majids and Islamic centers a form of “Diplomatic Immunity.” This will one day come back to haunt the citizen’s of Western nations.
Furthermore, mosques are currently reinforcing their structures and upgrading their security systems in the West today. They are using the excuse that they fear vandalism in order to carry out this fortification process. In reality it is a preparation for future defensive security for their offensive operations. So, it should be known ahead of time that governments and politicians are placing their citizens in a position of grave danger. And, for what reason? They do not want to offend the muslims. They do not want to hurt their feelings. They do not want to appear as intolerant. They do not want to damage their public image because this could negatively impact their future political aspirations. Instead, they choose to sacrifice public safety and security. s/m

After being down for 48 hours, the Islamic Socialist Network (I.S.N) website is back up. It appears the two pages with the initial content containing the bounties against the administrators of Ban Islam and YDM are unavailable. But, not to worry, because the I.S.N has released a NEW 3rd target, complete with a “WANTED” poster and $1 Million Bounty. What is interesting about this third case is, there is no website associated with the threat, just the individual himself.
It appears the I.S.N. is directing this round of attacks against a former Shia Imam by the name of Naghi (also Naqi ). He is being addressed by the I.S.N. as an “enemy of Islam” so, he may be an apostate. We are working to get more information on him.
The I.S.N. wisely wrote this 3rd threat in Persian with only a small segment at the top of the page in English. We translated one section above the Wanted poster and it reads as follows:
“In the end, those who are against Islam, Qur’an, Prophet, Ali and his family Brkhastyd.
Fireproof mighty God: O Muhammad!
Anyone But Me Byazard the war arose. (Just 2/352) on the same network, the Socialists of the Muslim Ummah, whether Sunni or Shiite, has called on the authorities to the page, and the information (referred to here) as detailed will receive a prize of $ 1 million.”
نهایت ای کسانی که به ضدیت با اسلام، قرآن، پیامبر،علی و خاندان او برخاستید. قال الله عزّوجلّ:
ای محمد! هرکه ولی مرا بیازارد به جنگ من برخاسته است.(کافی۲/۳۵۲) بر همین اساس شبکه سوسیالیست اسلامی از همه مسلمین امت، اعم از سنی و شیعه خواسته است مسئولان این صفحه را یافته و در صورت دادن اطلاعات (به اینجا مراجعه شود) دقیق جایزه ای با مبلغ 1میلیون دلار دریافت کنند.
We located several facebook pages operated by Naghi. It does appear that he has a sense of humor and likes to joke about Islam, judging by some of the photos we found. One of his pages is registered under his name.
We located another facebook page that he operates under the name of “Free.Speech.Naghi”
With “Free Speech” in the title of the page, it’s not hard to see why he is a target of this radical Islamic organization.
The Islamic Socialist Network also released a statement that one of their members named “Adel” is on her way to Canada to meet up with other members of the I.S.N. Here is that statement:
“Islamic socialist network announce this news that our beloved member, comrade Adel is on her way to Canada in order to send the message of Safety and peace from our network to all people as well as Muslim comrades and also met the members and followers of network in Canada, country of peace. May Allah bless her, Canada and all Canadians as well as all Muslim comrades in this excellent country.”
We have obtained evidence that leads us to believe that there is a strong Iranian connection to this organization and we will be releasing that information and more in the very near future.

What would the world look like today if the Chinese never invented black powder? What would the world look like today if the first hydrogen atom was never split?
What might have been, could have been or should have been doesn’t really matter at this point. The proverbial genie was let out of the lamp many centuries ago… and all that matters now… is, where do we go from here?
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
There is little greater that separates us from the rest of the world than those words right there. The rest of our freedoms are shared with many nations, but the right of the people to keep and bear arms is that which sets us apart. Our insightful forefathers knew that, just as they required that right themselves to acquire our republic, we would one day require it ourselves to keep it secure. Not necessarily secure from a foreign invader, but secure from the enemy within. What part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand? Oh, they understand it very well. They understand, that all that stands between us and tyranny are those hallowed words. They understand as we do, that the second amendment ensures all the rest.
Today in America, there is a liberal constituency that have disillusioned themselves into thinking that we would somehow be safer without guns. They believe that all murders would end and suddenly utopia would wash up on our shores and everyone will sing kumbaya. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. You see, the act of murder is not begot from a gun but it’s born from the heart of a man. Long before those Chinese alchemists accidentally stumbled upon black powder, murder existed. Whether it was by the stone or by the sword, murder long predates the gun. If every firearm was removed from the planet today, there would still be murder tomorrow. Whether it be by the sword of the Arab, the noose of the Persian or knife in the kitchen sink.. death will not cease to exist.
If the liberals really want to save lives, they should focus their efforts on the heart of man. They should concentrate their efforts on enforcing the laws on the criminal instead of forcing their agenda on the innocent. Especially since criminals do not obey the gun laws now, so why would they once our rights are taken away?
So, what would an America with no second amendment look like? If we, the citizens of the republic allowed this right to be taken from us today, to what nation tomorrow would we awake? In order to gain a greater understanding of that future, first we must look to the past. Many nations have already walked that path, so let’s see how that worked out for them, shall we?
One of our readers sent us the following:
(Excerpted from: Gun Control Vanity by, RC one)
1—–Nazi Germany established gun control in 1938 enabling the government to round up 13 million defenseless Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, mentally ill and impaired human beings, imprisoning them in concentration camps, and by a conscious process of attrition, destroyed them.
2—–The Turkish Ottoman Empire established gun control in 1911, proceeding then to exterminate 1.5 million Armenians from 1914 – 1917.
3—–The Soviet Union established gun control in 1929. Subsequently from 1929 – 1953, 60 million dissidents were imprisoned and then exterminated.
4—–China. Gun control laws were enacted in 1935. Between 1948 – 1952, 20 million Chinese, unable to defend themselves, were likewise murdered.
5—–In the United States the first gun control laws were enacted during the Civil War era to prevent guns from falling into the hands of black slaves who might be inclined to attack their masters and thereby keeping control in the hands of the latter.
6—–Guatemala. Gun control laws were passed in 1964: as a result, between 1964 – 1981, 100,000 defenseless Mayan Indians met their deaths.
7—–Uganda. Established gun control measures in 1970. Predictably, from 1971 – 1979, 300,000 defenseless Christians met a similar fate.
8—–Cambodia. Established gun control measures in 1956, subsequently from 1957 – 1977 one million Cambodians met their deaths.
The following is the expanded version with pictures and some interesting supporting links:
Between 1903 and 1911, Turkey enacts gun control laws that were designed to keep firearms out of the hands of Armenians. These laws were successful. . Between 1915-1917, 1.5 million Armenians were systematically rounded up and exterminated by the Turkish government.
Armenians being marched off to the death camps.
In 1938, Germany enacts gun control laws which were targeted squarely at the Jews. Between 1939 and 1945, 13 million Jews and other undesirables were rounded up and exterminated by the German government.
Adolph Hitler’s own thoughts on gun control:
“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.”
Guatemala has a long history of legislating guns out of the hands of peasants. Between 1964 and 1985, 100,000 Mayan Indians were rounded up and exterminated by the Guatemalan government.
China establishes gun control in 1935. From 1949 to 1975, 50-60 million Chinese citizens are exterminated by the Chinese government lead by the infamous Mao Zedong.
The soviet Union, under Joseph Stalin, made use of existing gun laws to ensure that his extermination of some 60 million people went smoothly.
The first Soviet gun controls were imposed during the Russian Civil War, as Czarists, Western troops, and national independence movements battled the central Red regime. Firearm registration was introduced on April 1, 1918.  On August 30, Fanny Kaplan supposedly wounded Lenin during an assassination attempt; the attempted assassination spurred a nationwide reign of terror.  In October 1918, the Council of People’s Commissars (the government) ordered the surrender of all firearms, ammunition, and sabres.  As has been the case in almost every nation where firearms registration has been introduced, registration proved a prelude to confiscation. Exempt from the confiscation order, however, were members of the Communist Party.  A 1920 decree imposed a mandatory minimum penalty of six months in prison for (non-Communist) possession of a firearm, even where there was no criminal intent. 
After the Red victory in the Civil War, the firearms laws were consolidated in a Criminal Code, which provided that unauthorized possession of a firearm would be punishable by hard labor.  A 1925 law made unauthorized possession of a firearm punishable by three months of hard labor, plus a fine of 300 rubles (equal to about four months’ wages for a highly-paid construction worker). 
Stalin apparently found little need to change the weapons control structure he had inherited. His only contributions were a 1935 law making illegal carrying of a knife punishable by five years in prison and a decree of that same year extending “all penalties, including death, down to twelve-year-old children.” 
Uganda established gun control in 1970 (Firearms act of 1970- This legislation made legal ownership of firearms more difficult than the pre-existing 1956 British colonial legislation through an expanded system of firearm registration and prohibitive licensing. It also banned a wide range of firearms. Civilian ownership of firearms, already low in Uganda, appears to have been virtually eliminated (Simkin, et al., 1994, pp.285-289). Between 1971 and 1979, 300,000 Christians are rounded up and exterminated by the government of Idi Amin.
Cambodian gun control was a legacy of French colonialism. A series of Royal Ordinances, decreed by a monarchy subservient to the French, appears to have been enacted out of fear of the Communist and anti-colonial insurgencies that were taking place in the 1920s and 1930s throughout Southeast Asia, although not in Cambodia.  The first law, in 1920, dealt with the carrying of guns, while the last law in the series, in 1938, imposed a strict licensing system.  Only hunters could have guns, and they were allowed to own only a single firearm.  These colonial laws appear to have stayed in place after Cambodia was granted independence. The Khmer Rouge enacted no new gun control laws, for they enacted no laws at all other than a Constitution. 
Cambodia was a poor country, and few people could afford guns.  On the other hand, the chaos that accompanies any war might have given some Cambodians the opportunity to acquire firearms from corrupt or dead soldiers. There is no solid evidence about how many Cambodians, with no cultural history of firearms ownership, attempted to do so. 
As soon as the Khmer Rouge took power, they immediately set out to disarm the populace. One Cambodian recalls that:
Eang [a woman] watched soldiers stride onto the porches of the houses and knock on the doors and ask the people who answered if they had any weapons. “We are here now to protect you,” the soldiers said, “and no one has a need for a weapon any more.” People who said that they kept no weapons were forced to stand aside and allow the soldiers to look for themselves. . . . The round-up of weapons took nine or ten days, and once the soldiers had concluded the villagers were no longer armed, they dropped their pretense of friendliness. . . . The soldiers said everyone would have to leave the village for a while, so that the troops could search for weapons; when the search was finished, they could return. 
People being forced out of villages and cities were searched thoroughly, and weapons and foreign currency were confiscated.  To the limited extent that Cambodians owned guns through the government licensing system, the names of registered gun owners were of course available to the new government
What do all of these Cambodians have in common? They were unarmed and they were killed by their radical left wing government.
More recently, In Rwanda during the 1990s, some 800,000 unarmed Tutsis were slaughtered by the new Hutu government. It is interesting to note that most of the murders were committed with machetes. More interesting than that, however, is the fact that communist China supplied the Hutus with 581,000 machetes in 1993 BUT Even more interesting than that is that the former Secretary General of the United Nations, one Boutros Boutros-Ghali, facilitated the arms deals with the Hutus, the deal that facilitated the genocide. In 1990, then Minister of Foreign Affairs of Egypt, Boutros-Ghali, facilitated an arms deal which was to result in $26 million worth of mortar bombs, rocket launchers, grenades and ammunition being flown from Cairo to Rwanda and then used to perpetrate a genocide a few years later. China. The UN. Gun control. Genocide.
Made in China
Democide is a term revived and redefined by the political scientist R. J. Rummel as “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.”
Rummel defines democide as “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder”
His research shows, further, that the death toll from democide is far greater than the death toll from war. After studying over 8,000 reports of government-caused deaths, Rummel estimates that there have been 262 million victims of democide in the last century. According to his figures, six times as many people have died from the inflictions of people working for governments than have died in battle.
Bottom line, statistically speaking, you are much more likely to be killed by your government than by a gun wielding maniac in a theater especially if you have allowed your government to disarm you. It should be obvious to you after reading this, that it has primarily been radical left wing socialist/communist governments imposing gun control and then perpetrating genocide against select members of the newly disarmed populace. It is also worth mentioning that gun registration typically precedes these events. It ought not be surprising to you that the leftists of this country are the ones pushing for gun control in the name of preventing crime despite an abundance of evidence that shows that gun control does not prevent crime. Further, it should come as no surprise that registration of long guns is increasingly being touted as a “reasonable” gun control legislation. Sales of assault rifles ending up in the hands of Mexican cartels was, in fact, to be the just cause for this incremental step towards subjugation of the free men and women of America. Luckily, their machinations were sufficiently exposed and thus foiled. They know what they’re trying to do. They do have an agenda. They do intend to disarm this country one way or another. Remain vigilant my friends. Not one step backwards. Ever forward. The life you save may be your own.

LAGOS, Nigeria (TheBlaze/AP) — The pastor would not renounce his Christian faith so the Islamic extremists slit his throat.
High school students were taking exams in defiance of the militants of Boko Haram, whose name means “Western education is forbidden.” So the gunmen mowed them down at their desks.
The group that Nigeria’s government has declared a prohibited terrorist organization “declared war” last week on vigilante youths who have been arresting suspects and handing them over to soldiers fighting to crush the insurgency in the northeast part of Africa’s most populous nation and the continent’s biggest oil producer.
Clearly, the situation is dire.
The radical group that once attacked only government institutions and security forces is increasingly targeting civilians. Some 155,000 square kilometers (60,000 square miles) of Nigeria are now under a state of emergency.
“Today, there are no boundaries and they are targeting the civilian population in a way that shows Nigeria is at a dangerous turning point,” said Comfort Ero, Africa program director for the International Crisis Group.
A month-long military crackdown by a joint force of troops and police, including bombing raids with fighter jets and helicopter gunships, has broken up militant camps but succeeded only in chasing the fighters into scrubby mountains from which they launch attacks on cities and towns, under the noses of the soldiers.
The government has described the change in tactics as an “end-game strategy” of a movement near collapse. But recent attacks indicate otherwise.
In broad daylight two weeks ago, militants sneaked into Maiduguri, capital of Borno state, and attacked students at Ansarudeen Private School as they were taking exams. Nine students were killed, according to Dr. Salem Umar of the General Hospital, who received the bodies in school uniforms. He said six other students were admitted with gunshot wounds.
That attack came hours after extremists attacked the Government Secondary School, a boarding school for seniors in Damaturu, capital of Yobe state, killing seven high school seniors and two teachers. The military said two soldiers and two jihadists also were killed in what developed into a five-hour shootout.
“They caught some of our student colleagues and ordered them to take them to the teachers’ quarters, after which they were also killed,” said a traumatized student who survived by hiding under his bed in a dormitory, for hours. He asked that his name not be used, fearing he would be targeted by the extremists.
On Friday, villagers streamed into Maiduguri from the Gwoza hills, saying Boko Haram fighters were threatening a bloodbath in the area where they appear to have regrouped, scrubby mountains with rock caves some 150 kilometers (90 miles) from the city.
Nigeria’s government first sought to crush Boko Haram in punishing raids in 2009 on the sect’s Maiduguri headquarters in which nearly 200 people were killed by security forces. The group was blamed for the killings of hundreds more civilians. The founding leader of Boko Haram, Mohammed Yusuf, was captured, then shot in the back by police who claimed he was trying to escape.
So it’s not surprising that Boko Haram militants are not responding to a government offer of amnesty.
The group re-emerged in attacks on government institutions and especially the police, whom they accuse of executing Yusuf. Boko Haram is blamed for the killings of more than 1,600 people since 2010 alone, according to an AP count.
The World Policy Institute said this month that Boko Haram is funded by criminal activities including bank robberies, money from politicians, and contributions of money and arms from al-Qaida affiliates in Africa.
Nigeria’s politicians have traditionally exploited explosive religious differences, and they have been publicly accusing each other of funding Boko Haram.
The movement appears to have little difficulty finding recruits among the plentiful unemployed and disgruntled youth as it seeks to create an Islamic state in northern Nigeria, where a moderate version of Sharia law already is in place.
The renewed violence already has forced more than 6,000 people to flee to the neighboring country of Niger while some 3,000 others went to Cameroon, the United Nations has reported.
Those who remain say they are terrified of both sides, with the country’s notoriously trigger-happy soldiers accused of killing dozens of innocents in the clampdown. The military denies charges by rights groups that it is responsible for gross human rights violations.
Sandbags, armored personnel carriers and military trucks loaded with soldiers bristling with guns and grenade launchers are a common sight. Tanks hide under trees on the outskirts. At checkpoints, dozens of cars line up, waiting to move out under a military escorts under the protection of gunners constantly swiveling their weapons atop personnel carriers.
Bustling markets usually open long into the night are deserted by sundown.
As the sun sets, instead of heading for an outdoor cafe to enjoy strong mint-flavored tea, lively discussion and traditional music on hand-made lutes, people scurry to lock themselves into their homes for the long, frightening night.
A dusk-to-dawn curfew has destroyed the social life that revolves around outdoor spaces in a region where state electricity is more off than on, temperatures soar into the 90s and, according to government statistics, 75 percent of people in northern Nigeria live from hand to mouth on less than $1 a day.
The region is the poorest in this country that is Africa’s biggest oil producer, suffering more than other Nigerians from neglect epitomized by poor governance and corruption. Anti-Western sentiment has simmered since the region came under British colonial rule in 1903. Britain helped entrench traditional resentments by leaving northern Nigerians to be ruled by their traditional sultans and emirs while colonizers settled in the south where missionaries made many converts to Christianity. Northern Nigeria is predominantly Muslim while the south is mainly Christian.
Traditional northern leaders including the influential Sultan of Sokoto have voiced strong opposition to Boko Haram’s terror tactics and aims, but it is difficult to gage how much support the extremists enjoy among the local population, or how that may be affected by the group’s latest strategy.
In a series of attacks in the past week, the first major ones since the military deployed on May 15, the jihadists have targeted civilians.
Last week, extremists sought out the Rev. Jacob Kwiza, a retired pastor with the Church of Christ in Nigeria. They found him picking mangoes in his father’s garden in the Gwoza hills, about 150 kilometers (90 miles) from Maiduguri, according to witnesses who fled the scene to Maiduguri.
The fighters ordered Kwiza to renounce his Christian faith and convert to Islam on pain of death.
When he repeatedly refused, they slit his throat, the witnesses said.
Extremists have torched at least four churches in the Gwoza hills in the past week.
It is not immediately clear how the targeting of civilians might affect people’s perceptions of Boko Haram.
What is clear, according to Ero of the International Crisis Group, is that “the situation has worsened and not improved and that violence has become more widespread and that civilians are at the heart of the crossfire between government forces and Boko Haram.
She said that while there was a need for military action, the government has not pursued it in conjunction with finding “a way to win the hearts and minds of the northern population.”
If the crackdown continues “you will find pockets of violence and it becomes a hotbed for further extremism,” she warned. “You cannot fight fire with fire.”

Lahore, Pakistan: A 10-year-old girl was forcibly married off to a 50-year-old man Malahanwala, Hafizabad under the ‘vani’ custom to compensate for her father’s second marriage in district.
Muhammad Akram, the girl’s father, had abducted a woman named Munawaran Bibi, whom he later married out of love, reported the police. Muawaran was Akram’s second wife.

The FIR filed by the girl’s uncle reveals that Falak Sher had barged into Akram’s house along with seven other men, including a prayer-leader from a local mosque, and performed a forced nuptial ritual in the presence of Akram’s first wife.
Mukhtar Hussain, an Investigation Officer in the case informed that the young girl had escaped from Falak Sher’s custody and returned to her parents’ home. The process of raids continues to ensure the immediate arrest of the all the accused nominated in the FIR.
The FIR, registered with Police Station Jalalpur Bhattiaan on Saturday, nominates nine persons including Falak Sher, the prayer leader and seven members of the ‘panchayat.’
The area’s people said that the local administration and police had remained tight lipped and reluctant to take any action against the accused. However, police officials claimed that they had registered a case against the accused without any delay when approached by complainants.
Radical Muslim Cleric Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah
by Steven Emerson and John Rossomando IPT News
Radical Egyptian cleric Yusuf Qaradawi is considered so radical that the United States banshim from entering the country.
Qaradawi, considered the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement, has called for the killing of Jews andAmericans.
That history makes the June 13 White House meeting with Sheik Abdullah Bin Bayyahall the more inexplicable. Bin Bayyah is vice president of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), a group founded by and headed by Qaradawi. The IUMS has a long history of supporting Hamas –a top Hamas leader is an IUMS member – and of calling for Israel’s destruction.
Bin Bayyah’s website claims that he met June 13 with senior Obama administration officials at the White House.
Nonetheless, it was the Obama administration which sought the meeting with Bin Bayyah, his website’s account said.
“We asked for this meeting to learn from you and we need to be looking for new mechanisms to communicate with you and the Association of Muslim Scholars (another name used for the IUMS),” Gayle Smith, senior director of the National Security Council, reportedly said.
Bin Bayyah’s June 13 account placed other senior officials in the meeting, including:Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), National Security Adviser Tom Donilon and White House spokeswomanJennifer Palmieri. But the account was later changed to delete the reference to Donilon’s presence at the meeting.
Smith also thanked Bin Bayyah for “his efforts to bring more understanding amongst humanity” during the meeting, the Bin Bayyah account said.
The White House did not respond to repeated requests for comments between June 14 and Tuesday.
Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah posted this photo of his June 13 White House meeting.
Bin Bayyah lobbied the White House to “take urgent action” to help Syrian rebels. “We demand Washington take a greater role in [Syria],” Bin Bayyah told Al-Jazeera. President Obama laterannounced plansto arm Syrian rebels.
In granting Bin Bayyah a visa, White House officials ignored his radical statements as well as his close connection to Qaradawi. The IUMS’s hostility toward Israel, and its support of terrorists, is well documented. Bin Bayyah falls comfortably in line with that view.
For example, in a 2011 statement on his Arabic-language website, he criticized the West for placing Palestinian terrorist groups such as Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and others in the same category as al-Qaida:
“[P]lacing the Palestinian resistance, which defends internationally recognized rights, on an equal footing with intercontinental terrorist organizations (al-Qaida) is not based on any moral principle and would be detrimental to the cause of the fight against terrorism and mix the cards and raises questions to the world conscience and serves terrorists.”
The IUMS welcomed Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh as a member in February 2012. The “Union will spare nothing in the service of the Palestinian people, praising the jihad of the Palestinian people with the leadership of the Hamas movement for resistance,” Haniyeh’s induction certificate said.
A 2004 fatwa, issued while Bin Bayyah was an IUMS board member, sanctioned “resistance,” meaning attacks on American troops in Iraq as a duty on every able Muslim in and outside Iraq.”
Jamal Badawi, a longtime ISNA board member, also is listed as a member of the IUMS Board of Trustees. Badawi has repeatedly defended Palestinian terrorism includingsuicide bombings. His name appears on the first page of a 1992 telephone directory of Muslim Brotherhood members in the United States, and he is listed as a fundraiserin records from the 2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas financing trial.
Badawi’s radical views fit in well with the IUMS, which has issued numerous statements against peace with Israel, calling for the “liberation of Palestine” from Jewish control. Each statement has been unyielding in calling on Muslims to destroy Israel and in forbidding them from making peace with the Jewish state.
After a board of trustees meeting in December, the IUMS issued a communiquecalling on Hamas and Fatah to reconcile in the name of “the core Palestinian values (including the right of return and resistance until the liberation of Palestine and its capital Jerusalem) … Meanwhile, the union calls on the scholars of the nation to continue their religious role in enlightening the local and international public concerning the dangers that this Judaization policy in Jerusalem poses for the historic unity of the Palestinian territories which is religiously impermissible to give up one inch of it.”

A photo on the group’s website shows Bin Bayyah was present at the meeting.
In 2009, it issued a fatwa forbidding any normalization of relations with Israel. It came on the 42ndanniversary of the Six-Day War, and Israel’s capturing of the Temple Mount.
“All political, economic, and cultural dealings and all forms of normalization with the Zionist entity are considered to be a form of supporting and sustaining the occupier in its occupation of land and holy places,” the fatwa said. “Moreover, such actions are considered a form of loyalty to the enemy, which is religiously prohibited; as Allah (Exalted and Glorified be He) says: ‘And if any amongst you takes them as Awliya’ (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), then surely he is one of them.'(Al-Ma’idah 5: 51). In conclusion, we call on all Muslims, rulers and citizens, to undertake their role, and embark on rescuing Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Blessed Land and freeing them from the clutches of the Zionist occupation.”
Just last month, an IUMS-affiliated Egyptian cleric blamed the United States and Israel for driving Egyptian opposition to the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government. Khaled Kholif invoked the anti-Semitic forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, as evidence of his argument, the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch reported.
“America and Israel are pleased with [the Egyptian opposition] movements, which are led by the brainless,” Kholif said during an appearance on Egypt’s Al-Hafez televisionflagged by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). “They have said so in The Protocols. Let me tell you exactly what they said in The Protocols: ‘We will strive to undermine security in the lands of the Gentiles, through reckless revolutions, led by the brainless.’ It says so in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, as translated by Khalifa Al-Tunisi.
“If you haven’t read it,” Kholif said of the Protocols, “you should.”
Embraced by American Islamists
Bin Bayyah previously met with White House envoy Rashad Hussain when Bin Bayyah participated in a July 2012 Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference in his native Mauritania.
His website also indicates he spoke at the ADAMS Center, a large northern Virginia mosque, while he was in Washington June 12.
In addition to his role as IUMS vice president , Bin Bayyah also is a member of the similarly anti-Semitic Qaradawi-founded European Council for Fatwa and Researchand the OIC’s International Islamic Fiqh Academy, the latter of which issued a resolution in January 2003 sanctioning Palestinian suicide bombings.
Qaradawi and Bin Bayyah show a keen mutual admiration of each other in their writing. Bin Bayyah notably referred to Qaradawi as “a mountain upon whose peak there is light” and as “a great reformer” who “spreads knowledge and wisdom” in a 2008 article published by Boston cleric Suhaib Webb. Qaradawi returned the favor three days later: “The reality is that the more I have come closer to him and got to know him better, the more I have loved him…”
That article also was published on Webb’s site.
And like Qaradawi, Bin Bayyah claims Palestinian violence is acceptable under international law. Islamic law’s approval is a given.
“He who adheres to international covenants can resist. The Palestinians. There are international conventions and there are international resolutions which give them rights but do not provide them with the means to obtain these rights. It is their right to resist,” Bin Bayyah said during a 2010 Al-Jazeera broadcast. “So, that which says resistance, says kinds of resistance, including the use of weapons. So, international conventions do not stray too far from the interests Islamic Sharia oversees.”
Bin Bayyah endorsed a push by Muslim intellectuals to get the United Nations to criminalize blasphemy against the Muslim prophet Muhammad and Islam, saying that it causes violence.
“To people of reason and understanding: We ask everyone to ponder the ramifications of provoking the feelings of over one billion people by a small party of people who desires not to seek peace nor fraternity between members of humanity,” Bin Bayyah wrote in a post last fall. “This poses a threat to world peace with no tangible benefit realized. Is it not necessary in today’s world for the United Nations to issue a resolution criminalizing the impingement of religious symbols? We request all religious and political authorities, as well as people of reason to join us in putting a stop to this futility that benefit no one.”
Considering that this information is readily available on the Internet, it would not have been too difficult for White House officials to uncover that both Bin Bayyah and the IUMS support Palestinian terrorism and Israel’s destruction. The White House visit also raises questions relative to the degree the Obama administration is willing to go to court the Muslim Brotherhood both at home and abroad.
This is Hamas in their own words… and this is who Obama supports.
(l. to r.) Tommy Robinson, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller
Two prominent US bloggers have been banned from entering the UK, the Home Office has said.
Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer co-founded anti-Muslim group Stop Islamization of America.
They were due to speak at an English Defence League march in Woolwich, where Drummer Lee Rigby was killed.
A government spokesman said individuals whose presence “is not conducive to the public good” could be excluded by the home secretary.
He added: “We condemn all those whose behaviours and views run counter to our shared values and will not stand for extremism in any form.”
Ms Geller, of the Atlas Shrugs blog, and Mr Spencer, of Jihad Watch, are also co-founders of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, best known for a pro-Israel “Defeat Jihad” poster campaign on the New York subway.
“The UK should never become a stage for inflammatory speakers who promote hate”
Keith Vaz MP
On both of their blogs the pair called their bans from entering the UK “a striking blow against freedom” and said the “the nation that gave the world the Magna Carta is dead”.
They were due to attend a march planned by the far-right EDL to mark Armed Forces Day on 29 June, ending in Woolwich, south east London, where soldier Drummer Rigby was murdered last month.
Keith Vaz, chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee, who had called for the bloggers to be banned from the UK, said: “I welcome the home secretary’s ban on Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from entering the country. This is the right decision. The UK should never become a stage for inflammatory speakers who promote hate.”
EDL leader Tommy Robinson, meanwhile, criticised the decision and said Ms Geller and Mr Spencer were coming to the UK to lay flowers at the place where Drummer Rigby died.
“It’s embarrassing for this so-called land of democracy and freedom of speech,” he said.
“How many hate preachers are living in this country? It just shows what sort of a two-tier system we have here.”
Anti-fascism campaigners Hope Not Hate had campaigned for the pair to not be allowed into the UK.
A researcher with the organisation, Matthew Collins, said it was “delighted” with the decision.
“These two are among some of the most extreme anti-Muslim activists in the world. They’ve nothing to contribute to life in this country.
“They’re not here to contribute to good community relations. They only wanted to come here and help the EDL stir up more trouble. Britain doesn’t need more hate even just for a few days.”
Mr Spencer put up a copy of what appears to be the exclusion decision from the Home Office on the Jihad Watch website, while Ms Geller posted a copy of her letter on her website, Atlas Shrugs.
The letters, both dated Tuesday, claim that both activists have fallen within the scope of a list of unacceptable behaviours by making statements which may “foster hatred” and lead to “inter-community violence” in the UK.
Both letters gave examples of anti-Muslim views stated by both and went on to say that should they be allowed to enter the UK the home secretary believes they would “continue to espouse such views”.
