A Dutch right-wing political party has demanded Netherlands be cleared of mosques, amid an ongoing row over the integration of Muslim and Turkish minorities in the country.
Machiel de Graaf, a member of Dutch anti-immigration and anti-Islam Party for Freedom (PVV), asked all mosques in the country to be shut down while speaking during a debate on integration in the House of Representatives.
Emphasizing that a Netherlands without mosques would be better, the parliamentarian said “We want to clean Netherlands of Islam.”
In addition to not being integrated into Dutch society and refuse to be assimilated, Muslims living in the country threaten Dutch identity and culture by giving more birth, according to de Graaf.
De Graaf’s remarks drew harsh criticism from members of social democratic parties attending the debate.
While Labor Party (PvdA) deputy Roos Vermeij urged the right-winger to retract his words, Democrats 66 (D66) deputy Sten van Weijenberg stressed his statements were dangerous.
De Graaf’s party, which is led by right-wing politician Geert Wilders, has been a vocal critic of Muslims and immigrants living in the country, but his words mark the first time that the request for the complete closure of mosques has been expressed.
The debate also came as Turkey warned Dutch authorities about aggressive and racist policies toward the Turkish community living there.
Two weeks ago, two lawmakers of Turkish descent from the PvdA were expelled after refusing to support their party’s critical remarks about a number of Turkish organizations that were accused of being “too focused on promoting Turkish and Islamic identity.”

A 63-year-old Queens man is being criminally charged with sexually fondling a preteen girl in the basement of a mosque, the borough’s chief prosecutor said Friday.
Md Uddin, of 97th Street in the Corona neighborhood, was being held on charges of first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child, prosecutors said.
“These are serious accusations in which an alleged sexual predator stalked his victim in a place of worship and, if true, cannot go unpunished,” said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.
Uddin is accused luring the 10-year-old girl to the basement of the Fultoli Jame Masjid Mosque just before 1 p.m. Thursday and fondling her breasts over and under her clothing, according to the charges.
“Does this feel good? Do you like this?” he said to the girl, according to the charges. “Don’t tell anyone about this.”
The victim went home and told a family member who subsequently contacted authorities.
There was no information as to whether Uddin had obtained a lawyer who could comment on the charges.

Young men who gatecrashed a party held at a Melbourne parish hall are being hunted after an alleged assault and sexual offence against a teenage girl.
The Thomastown event at St Clare’s Parish School hall, which was gatecrashed after the party details were posted on Facebook, turned violent about 8.30pm last Saturday when the 16-year-old girl was initially assaulted.
Sexual crime squad detectives say the girl was physically assaulted by a large group of males in a bathroom inside the Harbard St hall.

VEHARI, Pakistan: A girl suffered serious burn wounds on Thursday when her father and an uncle threw acid on her in Chak 56-K/B, Ludden, some 40kms from here.
Reports said that Rabia Bibi, with 70 percent burns, was shifted to Nishtar Hospital in Multan in a critical condition.
Rabia had contracted marriage with her cousin Nazakat. After getting divorce from him, she eloped with another cousin, Jaffar. She returned home after a panchayat assured her that she would be married.
According to panchayat’s decision, Rabia was to tie the knot with Jaffar, but her father Shaukat and uncle Riaz were not agreed on it.
On Thursday, they threw acid on Rabia and informed police that Jaffar and his accomplices had committed the crime.
The Luddan police took Jaffar into custody, but after investigation arrested Riaz who confessed to having committed the crime. Later, police also arrested Shaukat. A case has been registered against both accused under Section 336 B and 7-ATA.

Throwing acid on any person, especially a woman, has to be one of the most egregious crimes against another human being that I have ever heard of. We read story after story where, the perpetrator is a male and the victim, a female. We continue to hear governing bodies from nations where these crimes occur proclaim: ‘..we are getting serious about prosecuting acid attacks..’
Are you ‘truly’ serious about halting these crimes against humanity?
Then, prove it!
Here is a punishment that fits the crime:
Any ‘person’ found guilty in a court of law, of acid attacking another person will:
First, have his genitals fully submerged in a vat of sulfuric acid for 3 minutes.
Next, have his entire head submerged in a vat of sulfuric acid for 3 minutes.
Then, produce posters and billboards with this message and post them everywhere. Produce commercials for television and radio and broadcast them regularly. Let any future perpetrator know that ‘..he will suffer as the victim suffers..’
And to any nation that fails to implement a punishment such as this, for a crime so horrific as this, is NOT ‘truly’ serious about stopping it.
Islam’s War on Women Continues…

Solidarity is being organized in Evry (Essonne), after the terrible tragedy that occurred at Diderot Square, in the rather quiet residential area of Champtier-du-Coq. Since Wednesday, a fund-raising appeal has been circulating on social networks to collect enough money for the funeral of a mother. Monday morning she was killed by her husband with a machete, right before the eyes of their children.
The drama took place in an otherwise uneventful morning, in the family’s apartment. “A known family in Evry, in a good way,” assures someone from the neighborhood. The couple – parents of two older daughters of 16 and 18 and of 6-year old twins – was at home. On this vacation day, one of the older daughters was baby-sitting, which seemed to bother her father.
A conflict broke, and the 50-year old violently attacked the girl. The mother, who was not working that day, quickly intervened. She stepped in, but her husband at that point was uncontrollable. He hit her, struck her several blows with a machete, slashing off her feet and a hand. One of the children called for help but his efforts were futile. The victim died upon arrival at the hospital.
The couple’s children, and the two small children that the eldest daughter was babysitting, were all hospitalized. A psychological evaluation was also set up. The father was immediately arrested and had to be committed. “A real tragedy, I do not know what else to call it, absolutely barbaric, says Francis Chouat, the PS (Parti Socialiste) mayor of Evry. The involuntary commitment of the father suggests serious psychiatric disorders, but this was never a problem before in the family.”
Neighbors and family friends set up a fund-raiser at http://www.yourebe.com for the repatriation of the deceased in Algeria. The investigation was entrusted to the police of Evry.

A Montreal businessman is on a mission to save scores of women and girls from being sold into sexual slavery by Islamic State militants in Iraq, and thousands of people around the world are joining his cause.
With cold hard cash, Steve Maman pays for the release of Yazidis and Christians from their ISIS captors, who have created a cottage industry out of peddling Iraqi minority women to the highest bidder. What began as a campaign among members of Montreal’s Sephardic Jewish community, to which Maman belongs, has become a global movement with a GoFundMe page that topped a half-million dollars on Thursday.

The swell of donations and growing global awareness could become a lifeline for some 2,700 young women and girls estimated to still be in captivity behind Islamic State lines.
“We cannot sit and remain indifferent to what is going on,” the 42-year-old father of six, who supporters have dubbed the “Jewish Schindler” after German factory owner Oskar Schindler, credited with saving more than 1,000 Jews during the Holocaust, told Vocativ. “We cannot wait and rely on others to act. ‘Why not me?’ is the question we should all be asking ourselves.”
But critics believe Maman’s campaign will pour thousands of dollars into the hands of ISIS militants, who have waged a brutal campaign against religious and ethnic minorities since their group declared its caliphate across Syria and Iraq last year. The United Nations reported that last August up to 5,000 Yazidis were slaughtered in Iraq’s Sinjar district and beyond. Thousands of Christian and Yazidi women were later taken as ISIS brides or sold into sexual slavery, humanitarian groups have found.

News of the atrocities stunned Maman, who runs a classic car dealership and crystal wholesale business. “It’s a level of barbarism which was on another level of persecution,” he told the Toronto Star.
Determined to act, he launched an organization called the Liberation of Christian and Yazidi Children of Iraq. Maman then started calling his business associates, as well as members of Montreal’s Jewish community, to finance the project. Later, he used connections that he had in Baghdad to contact hostage negotiators and humanitarian aid workers.
According to Maman, his organization directs money to brokers on the ground in Iraq, who then use the funds to negotiate a price with Islamic State fighters in the mountain ranges of Iraqi Kurdistan. The Yazidi and Christian captives can be purchased for a fee of between $1,000 and $3,000, which includes a sizable commission for the broker, Maman said.
Once freed, the women and girls are initially taken to refugee camps in Kurdistan. They receive food, shelter and medical care, Maman said. Many of the women and girls say they were sexually abused by ISIS militants. “The rapes, abuse, and brutality they suffer at the hands of their captors are beyond imagination,” wrote Maman on his GoFundMe page.

To date, Maman’s group has rescued 128 Yazidis and Christians, he said. Hundreds more, however, may soon be freed from ISIS. By Thursday this week his GoFundMe campaign topped $500,000 from more than 2,500 donations worldwide. Maman’s current goal, according to the campaign, is to raise $2 million.
“If he doesn’t it’s a stunning indictment on humanity,” Pamela Geller, the political commentator and sponsor of the controversial “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland, Texas last May, told Vocativ. She, along with other anti-Islamic activists in the United States, have championed Maman’s work for months.
“What should we do? Stand by while these girls are gang-raped, sold, torn apart, and tortured?” said Geller. “Only his group is doing anything to save them.”
News of the businessman’s work continues to spread across countries andcontinents and an increasing number of critics have taken to comment threads online to say that all those donations go straight to ISIS coffers .
“This is both commendable and problematic,” said one commenter on the Toronto Star website. “The priority should be returning these girls and women to their families and relative safety as quickly as possible. But at the price of rewarding their kidnappers and providing ISIS with money?”
Others are less diplomatic. “FOLKS IF YOU GIVE $$ TO ISIS MIDDLEMEN IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM A LARGE CUT ENDS UP WITH ISIS THIS ONLY FUNDS NEW ABDUCTIONS AND FUTURE RANSOMS AT HIGHER PRICES,” wrote a user by the name of Kale Lillian on Maman’s GoFundMe page.
Maman remains undeterred. Compared to the billions ISIS has reportedly madefrom looting from banks, seizing oil fields and other illicit activity, the money spent rescuing these women and girls is nominal, he said. “This is pocket change to them,” he said.
After a pause, Maman added: “Honestly, there is no other option to rescue them. How much longer can we wait to save them?”
