    The Guardian ^ | July 2017 | Wikipedia
    On July 15, 2017, Justine Damond (née Ruszczyk) a 40-year-old Australian-American woman, was fatally shot by a 33-year-old Mohamed Noor, a Somali-American Minneapolis Police Department officer, after she had called 9-1-1 to report the possible assault of a woman in an alley behind her house. Occurring weeks after a high-profile manslaughter trial acquittal in the 2016 police shooting of Philando Castile, also in the Twin Cities metro area, the shooting exacerbated existing tensions and attracted national and international press. Justine Maia Damond (April 4, 1977 – July 15, 2017) grew up in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney, New South...

    Somalia has witnessed a “massive” rise in female genital mutilation (FGM) as girls are kept home from school due to lockdown restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic, a report said Monday. The charity Plan International, which advocates for children’s rights and equal opportunities for girls, said so-called circumcisers are going door to door offering to cut girls unable to venture outside. The lockdown, which coincided with the Muslim month of Ramadan, when the ritual is traditionally performed, has undermined efforts to eradicate the practice in Somalia. About 98 percent of women and girls there already have undergone FGM, the highest rate...

    "To serve our country and deal with this kind of hate really it sets, I think, the wrong tone and sends a message that our country isn’t as inclusive, as welcoming as we could like it to be," Omar said. "And so, I work really hard to try to make sure that we are leading with compassion."

    A Pakistani doctor and former Mayo Clinic researcher has been indicted on one count of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization after authorities say he told paid FBI informants that he pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group and wanted to carry out lone wolf attacks in the U.S. The indictment against Muhammad Masood, 28, was announced Friday by U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald.. . .

    The flight from Italy was one of the last arrivals that day at the Stockholm airport. A Swedish couple in their 50s walked up and loaded their skis into Razzak Khalaf's taxi. It was early March and concerns over the coronavirus were already present, but the couple, both coughing for the entire 45-minute journey, assured Khalaf they were healthy and just suffering from a change in the weather. Four days later, the Iraqi immigrant got seriously ill with COVID-19. Still not able to return to work, Khalaf is part of the growing evidence that those in immigrant communities in the...

But no European authorities have any cure. “The death of pensioner Detlef in Offenburg: a murder based on Islamic motives,” translated from “Der Tod von Rentner Detlef in Offenburg: Ein Mord aus islamischen Motiven,” by Michael Stürzenberger, PI News, April 21, 2020 (thanks to Medforth Blog): As is so often the case, a murder based on Islamic motives is pushed back into the psychiatric area in Offenburg.

    The now six-year-old boy who was thrown from a balcony at the Mall of America is celebrating his recovery a year after the incident. In April 2019, Landen was with his mother at the Mall of America when a man "looking for someone to kill" approached Landen and threw him over the balcony, according to court documents. The nearly 40-foot fall left Landen seriously injured with a long road to recovery. Donations poured in with more than $1 million raised online. According to family updates, Landen returned home in August and as of late November, Landen was walking "perfectly." In...

Tracking it with Find My iPhone to her neighbor’s backyard, she went to get it, and told her neighbor, “I know you did this and I’m calling the police!” At that point the neighbor, whom KSDK describes only as a “6-foot teen,” attacked her. “He knocked me down, pulling my hair, kicking,” Clarke recounted.

    What Muslims do here what they would never dare to do in their own countries. Maybe there is something to that reprisal. But what is more interesting is the fact that they would prefer the law that could end their life! For example for some crimes in sharia law, you get the death penalty or huge punishment, while in our law they will get away with just a warning or don’t get punished at all. But when asked which law they prefer Muslims in Minneapolis said that Sharia Law is way better and that they obey that law because they...

    lhan Omar told friends years ago that the man who went on to become her second husband was, in fact, her brother, DailyMail.com can confirm. She married him in a Christian ceremony outside of the Minneapolis Somali community so as to keep the marriage secret. But hardly anyone realized that meant marrying him. “She said she needed to get papers for her brother to go to school,” Abdihakin Osman Nur , 40, told the Daily Mail. “We all thought she was just getting papers together to allow him to stay in this country. Once she had the papers they could...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was one of a number of top Democrats to rip into President Trump’s decision to expand the travel ban to include six more countries on Friday -- with Pelosi describing it as “discrimination disguised as policy.” “The Trump administration’s expansion of its outrageous, un-American travel ban threatens our security, our values and the rule of law," she said in a statement. "The sweeping rule, barring more than 350 million individuals from predominantly African nations from traveling to the United States, is discrimination disguised as policy." [cut] The initial seven countries have restrictions on both immigrant and...
