    Medical students celebrate their graduation A film showing male and female medicine graduates together at a party in Saudi Arabia has triggered furore, with some viewers calling for their punishment. The film, carried by Ajel newspaper and social networks, showed several men and women celebrating their graduation from the faculty of medicine at a shopping mall in the Western Saudi town of Taif. “Many viewers called for the punishment of the participants and the mall which allowed the organization of the party,” the paper said. “The participants in the party defended themselves, saying the event was characterized by respect...

    A Muslim woman who was photographed taking selfies in front of a Belgian protest last week, earning her widespread praise for her cheerful stance against bigotry, reportedly praised Hitler and called for the killing of Jews in past Facebook posts. Zakia Belkhiri was photographed taking the selfies as she flashed a peace sign in front of Vlaams Belang protesters at the third annual Muslim Expo in Antwerp.The protests were part of the increasing resistance in Belgium and elsewhere in Europe to the flood of Muslim refugees pouring in from war-torn and poverty stricken countries in the Middle East and Africa.

    If there’s a high bar for which social justice warriors strive, surely it was set by Britain’s first transgender gay Muslim woman. Amid the ongoing bathroom wars in America, conservative blogger Brandon Morse took to social media to call attention to Lucy Vallender, who he said “has the gold in the oppression [O]lympics.” Vallender, formerly known as Laurens before “he” became true to “herself,” is a former British soldier who had a sex operation in 2010 to switch out his male parts for female parts. Vallender would later convert to Islam, saying it’s a “peaceful” religion and take things even...

    she’s insane She screamed “Allahu akbar” while brandishing the girl’s head and said that Allah had ordered her to behead the girl. She seems to have had an Islamic State boyfriend. She had become religious not long before the beheading, and started wearing hijab. She says the beheading was revenge for Russian airstrikes on Muslims in Syria. She told her son to pray five times a day and live in accord with Sharia. Yes, this woman is clearly insane, just the way so very many Islamic jihad terrorists these days are insane. The establishment line is that Islamic jihad terror...

    The gruesome practice of female genital mutilation is at record highs in America due to the influx of Muslim immigrants. The FBI is asking for help in investigating these vicious acts of misogyny. But at the same time, the FBI goes out of its way to say that it is not Islamic in practice — dhimmis even in this. But they need help, because the Muslim community is very secretive and protective of this ghastly custom. Muslim Immigration Puts Half a Million U.S. Girls at Risk of Genital Mutilation. Female genital mutilation (FGM) or clitoridectomy is an Islamic tradition, rampant...

    Huffington Post ^ | 05/11/2016 | Yasmin Nouh
    The New York Times recently published a “guide“ to Muslim headscarves. The article intended to illuminate an Islamic concept that promotes modesty, but the associated images showed styles specific to a few countries and all of the silhouettes were faceless. These types of portrayals can contribute to a misperception among some that Muslim women who don the headscarf may lack agency. In today’s political climate, the headscarf has become more than just a spiritual symbol of modesty. At one point, women working in government positions were not allowed to wear it in Turkey. In France, the niqab — a version...

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan - Pakistani police on Thursday arrested 15 members of a tribal council accused of ordering the burning alive of a young girl for helping a couple to elope in a so-called "honour killing", police said.

    Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin-Abdullah al-Sheikh attempted to justify the ban on religious television channel Almajd. He warned "weak-spirited" men who are "obsessed with women" could hurt female drivers. The cleric added family members would not know where their female relatives were if they were allowed to drive. . . . The sheikh is known for being outspoken and in 2014 claimed Twitter was "the source of all evil". He has also spoken out on animation films, reportedly issued a fatwa allowing men to eat their wife if they are starving and banned Muslims from playing chess.

Female members of flight crews have been ordered to cover their hair once they disembark in Tehran and unions are demanding that the flights be made voluntary for women. The resumption of a thrice-weekly service between Paris and Tehran, planned for April 17 after an eight-year break, follows a thaw in relations since Iran agreed to dismantle large sections of its nuclear programme.

They belonged to a gang of five robbers, all of whom were publicly beheaded before their corpses were hoisted high in the air, where they remained for days. The gruesome sight is one scene in a shocking documentary to be aired this week which sheds light on life in Saudi Arabia, one of the world’s bloodiest and most secretive countries.

    There were no casualties, but the bomb destroyed three out of five classrooms of the government girls' primary school in Tiarza village of tribal South Waziristan, a local security official told AFP. Azam Tariq, a spokesman for the "Sajna" arm of the Pakistani Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack, saying the school had been targeted because it was run by the military and the group was opposed to female education. Tariq told AFP that militants captured 18 people including school security guards and labourers before planting the explosive, but later released them. Since 2002, when the army moved into northwestern...

Cars have been defaced with antisemitic messages. South Florida saw a spate of anti-Semitic incidents involving synagogues and cars spray-painted with swastikas, "Hamas" and hateful symbols, as well as protestors holding offensive signs at anti-Israel rallies.

    ORAN, Algeria -- AFTER Tahrir came Cologne. After the square came sex. The Arab revolutions of 2011 aroused enthusiasm at first, but passions have since waned. Those movements have come to look imperfect, even ugly: For one thing, they have failed to touch ideas, culture, religion or social norms, especially the norms relating to sex. Revolution doesn't mean modernity. The attacks on Western women by Arab migrants in Cologne, Germany, on New Year's Eve evoked the harassment of women in Tahrir Square itself during the heady days of the Egyptian revolution. The reminder has led people in the West to...

Her flowing locks of java love strike those brand affinity chords nationwide and across the pond, so why not in the Middle East? Because boobies or some such. The logo was considered a bit too randy for the locals, so Starbucks completely caved and came up with a falling star on the Sydney Opera House in Australia. That story didn’t gain a lot of traction, but this more recent one is definitely approaching #PRFail territory. Women have been officially “barred” from...

    These fascinating photographs from Afghanistan in the 1960s are a far cry from the war-torn images in the news today. The eye-opening collection was captured by university professor Dr Bill Podlich from Arizona, who swapped life in America to travel to Kabul with his wife, Margaret, and two teenage daughters, Jan and Peg. Using his Kodachrome film, his images show a peaceful Afghanistan making strides towards a more liberal and Westernised lifestyle - a stark contrast to harrowing sights seen during Taliban regime.

However, his mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaev, just unleashed a bizarre rant via text message that shows what she thinks of the recent verdict:

    Dozens of Nigerian women who were forced to marry Boko Haram fighters were reportedly slaughtered by their 'husbands' before a battle with troops in the northeast town of Bama. Witnesses said the Islamist militants feared they would be killed by advancing soldiers or separated from their wives when they fled the town. 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.'

She says the four have been locked away for more than a decade, subject to abuse and deprivation. Last year, various news stations managed to reach Sahar, 42, and Jawaher, 38, who live in a...
