    “Boko Haram came and told us they were moving out and said that we should run away with them. But we said no… Then they started stoning us. I held my baby to my stomach and doubled over to protect her,” 27-year-old Lami Musa told the Associated Press. Musa escaped along with her five-month-old baby. Boko Haram recently changed its name officially to the Islamic State West Africa Province, or ISWAP. The rescue does not mean the crisis is over, as the Nigerian government must now resolve how to reintegrate these survivors into society. It is not known exactly where...

The gunmen shot both Mahmud and her mother, Mehnaz Mahmud, as they stopped at a traffic light Friday night in an upscale Karachi neighborhood, senior police officer Zafar Iqbal said. Later, Mahmud’s car was brought to a nearby police station; blood stained the car’s white exterior, the front driver’s side window was smashed and a pair of...

They killed the women to prevent them from subsequently marrying soldiers or other so-called non-believers, they said. Sharifatu Bakura, 39, said: 'The terrorists said they will not allow their wives to be married to infidels.'

    A leading US Muslim advocacy group has welcomed the new policy for Minneapolis’ St. Paul police which allows Muslim policewomen to don Islamic headscarf or hijab. “We congratulate Chief Smith and the St. Paul Police Department for creating a welcoming, inclusive environment for Muslim employees,” CAIR-MN Executive Director Lori Saroya said in a statement obtained by OnIslam on Sunday, March 2. “This decision will enable more Muslim women to consider serving their community through a career in law enforcement.” On Saturday morning, Kadra Mohamed was recognized as the first Somali-American woman to join the St. Paul Police Department. Mohamed was...

    60 percent of girls in Afghanistan are married before their 16th birthday. “Despite a law setting the legal minimum age for marriage at 16 for girls and 18 for boys, international and local observers estimated that 60 percent of girls were married before the age of 16,” the State Department said in its most recent human rights report. ... Some girls as young as six or seven were promised in marriage, with the understanding that the actual marriage would be delayed until the child reached puberty. Reports indicated, however, that this delay was rarely observed and that young girls were...

    Russian security officials are hunting for three more young Muslim women — so-called “black widow” terror suspects — who they believe are planning to target the final stages of the Olympic torch relay with suicide bomb attacks. Wanted posters distributed by police say that the women have been dispatched by underground groups to attack between Tuesday and Thursday in Rostov-on-Don, where the torch is expected to arrive Wednesday on its way to the Olympic city of Sochi.

    Police in Sochi have launched an urgent search for a possible female suicide bomber who may have already made it past the ring of security set up for the Olympic Games. Hotel employees in Sochi told ABC News that posters with pictures and descriptions of a 22-year-old woman from nearby Dagestan were distributed over the weekend by authorities and a similar flyer was also seen posted at Sochi's airport. A spokesperson for the U.S. Olympic Committee reacted to the revelation by saying that the safety of Team USA is their "top priority."
  • Michigan: Iranian Sanaz Nezami Savagely Beaten By Islamic Husband – Family Watches Death Online

    Sanaz Nezami was a beautiful, intelligent young woman with a bright future ahead of her. She was 27-years-old and newly married to Nima Nassiri, an Islamic man from Los Angeles. This tragic story broke on January 1st. The AP whitewashed the story. USA Today’s story read “Woman’s Tragic Death Leads Nurses To Bond With Her Family Overseas.” The title is correct, but the truth about what happened to the brilliant young woman, who could speak three languages, is much darker. She died at the hands of her Islamic husband, in what was most obviously an honor killing. Why does the...

    This is by far the most bizarre, repulsive observation, overview of the extent in which the Arab/Muslim culture defies the very concept of what it means to be human. I've taken to make the full transcript of the entire interview available here below as it appears on screen as translated by MEMRI-TV. MEMRI_TV is known to the West for their absolutely accurate transcription of the local Arab language into English. I do make an occasional comment of my own on specific statements that can not otherwise be described. I just want to state for the record that the content of...

    (CNN) -- A 15-year-old Yemeni girl was burned to death by her father for "communicating with her fiance," according to Yemen's Interior Ministry. The father, a 35-year-old man, was arrested Tuesday in a village in Taiz Province. The statement did not clarify when the girl was killed. The case, which activists are calling an honor crime, is once again highlighting the plight of young girls in Yemen, where child marriages and honor killings still happen. According to Human Rights Watch, more than half of all females in Yemen are married off before the age of 18.

    The decision made by the Ministry of Labor and the Ministry of Commerce to feminize employment in women’s stores has created panic among saleswomen, who often have no background in sales and lack sufficient training. Many saleswomen have been unable to familiarize themselves with the job function to execute their job efficiently and professionally. Sarah E., an employee who was hired a week ago at a women’s lingerie shop, said: “I am thinking of submitting my resignation. It is really difficult for me to deal with demanding customers. “We were given a five-day training course before we started work. It...

    The woman in a full-length burka walked calmly into the drab government office. She moved close to the desk behind which an administrator was shuffling his papers. Others queued around her. Suddenly, without warning, she detonated the suicide vest she was wearing. The explosion flashed a brilliant white on the grainy CCTV before the cameras cut out, obliterating everything – and everyone – in the room.
