    It has been revealed that world-renowned author and philanthropist JK Rowling donated hundreds of thousands of British pounds to rescue over 100 female lawyers and their families who were facing possible execution in Afghanistan. According to the Daily Mail, Rowling made the donation after Britain and the US withdrew from Kabul, leaving hundreds of female judges, prosecutors, and defense counsel at risk of execution by the Taliban. With the help of fellow philanthropist Lord Michael Hintze, who contributed nearly one million British pounds, as well as large sums from other prominent donors and smaller sums from the public, a total...

    Life often takes us in unexpected directions, but Maria Sue Bell’s life has been more rollicking and full of surprises than most. Back in 1984 and 1985, Bell served in the Army National Guard and was on Army Active Duty until Jan. 31, 1986. In a warning sign of what was to come, the criminal complaint against Bell says that she “received an Other Than Honorable (OTH) Discharge deemed Good for Service in lieu of a Court Martial,” although the reason for this has not been disclosed and has now been overshadowed by far more serious misconduct: Bell was sentenced...
  • Afghanistan: Taliban bans women from working for NGOs

    12/24/2022 10:10:09 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 2 replies
    Women's freedoms have been further curtailed in Afghanistan, after the Taliban barred them from working for non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The Islamist rulers said female NGO employees had been breaking Sharia law by failing to wear the hijab. It comes days after female students were banned from universities - the latest restriction on their education since the Taliban regained power. Women prevented from going to work told the BBC of their fear and helplessness. One said she was the main earner in her household, and asked: "If I cannot go to my job, who can support my family?" Another breadwinner insisted...

    Medics treating protesters in Iran said they were seeing a difference in the type of injuries inflicted on men and women by the security forces — with the female activists often being shot in their faces, breasts and genitals.. multiple doctors and nurses who have been surreptitiously caring for wounded demonstrators during months of unrest said it appeared that officers tasked with stopping the protests have been targeting specific body parts in women. One doctor from Isfahan province speaking to the outlet on condition of anonymity said he believed the authorities “wanted to destroy the beauty of these women.” Iran...

    Kabul (AFP) – Three women and 11 men were flogged Wednesday on the orders of an Afghan court after they were found guilty of theft and "moral crimes", a provincial official said. The lashings are the first to be confirmed since the Taliban's supreme leader ordered judges this month to fully enforce Islamic law, or sharia, saying corporal punishment was obligatory for certain crimes. Qazi Rafiullah Samim, head of information and culture for Logar province, told AFP the lashings were not administered publicly. "Fourteen people were given discretionary punishment, of which 11 were men and three were women," he said,...

    ast week marked the seventh annual commemoration of the Yazidi genocide, though you wouldn’t know it from watching establishment media. Nor would you know that there is an ongoing genocide of Christians taking place in Nigeria, nor that throughout the Islamic world countless women and girls are enduring kidnapping, forced marriages, forced conversions of Christians to Islam, genocidal rape, and/or widespread sex trafficking even in countries that are supposedly our allies in the War on Terror. To keep abreast of these crises, one needs to seek out the work of such concerned journalists as the Freedom Center’s own Raymond Ibrahim...

    Cineworld cancels all showings of The Lady of Heaven after branches were picketed by Muslim activistsA UK cinema chain has cancelled all screenings of a “blasphemous” film about the daughter of the prophet Muhammad after branches were picketed by Muslim activists. Cineworld said it took the decision to cancel all showings of The Lady of Heaven to “ensure the safety of our staff and customers”. The cancellation was criticised by a House of Lords peer as being “disastrous for the arts, dangerous for free speech”. The film’s producer defended the rights of the protesters to express their displeasure but said...

    The populist Sweden Democrats (SD) have called for the repatriation of Syrians, Afghans, and Somalis, noting their rate of unemployment and high numbers who have not integrated. Party leader Jimmie Åkesson and migration policy spokesman Ludvig Aspling have said the Swedish government needs to do more to return migrants to their homelands if they rely on state benefits and do not integrate. “Since 2010, Sweden has granted over 1.2 million residence permits, equivalent to more than a brand new Stockholm. Unemployment is almost five times higher among foreign-born compared to native-born,” the pair wrote in a debate article for the...

    The latest ISIS refugee terror plot shows why we need a travel ban right now.. Shihab Ahmed Shihab Shihab, an Iraqi Muslim, entered the country using a tourist visa. Seven months later, just before his visa was about to expire, he asked for political asylum and planned to bring his entire family into the United States. A year later the Iraqi refugee was arrested as part of a plot to kill George W. Bush for ISIS. According to a confidential informant, Shihab was actually Abu Ahmed, who boasted of being related to Al-Baghdadi, the deceased Caliph of ISIS, and claimed...

    BERLIN -Two Afghan brothers suspected of killing their sister for adopting a Western lifestyle went on trial in Berlin on Wednesday, in a case that highlights the violence against women and cultural tensions among some recent migrants to Germany. The defendants, identified as Sayed H. and Seyed H. under German privacy laws, are accused of luring their 34 year-old sister to meet them last July in Berlin and choking her and cutting her throat, the Berlin prosecutor’s office said. All three siblings had Afghan citizenship and had been living in Germany for several years. The brothers, aged 23 and 27,...

Husband of the year Sajjad Heydari decapitated his wife in an “honor killing.” What did the 17-year-old woman do to deserve this? She was sick of being abused.

    What happened to the FBI? ... The FBI’s Dallas division’s special agent in charge, Matthew DeSarno, described the gunman to the press as “singularly focused on one issue, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community.” I don’t blame SAC DeSarno — a former colleague — for this disbelieve-your-lying-eyes assessment. He takes his orders from FBI headquarters. And we exist in woke times. Yes, sometimes investigations take time, and we don’t want to release inaccurate information. Yet this was a ground ball. The White House asserted the FBI’s course correction a day later, allowing that, of course, the...

    The following are among the abuses Muslims inflicted on Christians throughout the month of September 2021: Muslim Slaughter of Christians.. Afghanistan: Muslims linked to the Islamic State murdered four Christians. While trying to escape the country, a Christian family was intercepted by the jihadists. According to a local source, “ISIS asked them, ‘we have tape about you that you are no longer Muslims. So is it true that you are not Muslim?’ They said, ‘Yes, we are not Muslims anymore. We are Christians.’ So the men of this family were killed at the spot. The children and women, they let...

    A short time ago Israel struck a 13-story residential building in Gaza City. According to Channel 12, prior to the strike people in the building received several warnings, including phone calls and messages, telling them to leave and a preliminary “roof-knocking” strike — using a small missile to strike the roof with minimal damage in order to cause all inside to leave before a major strike. Hamas earlier threatened to launch long-range rockets at Tel Aviv should Israel continue airstrikes in residential areas. Channel 12 says the group was apparently referring to the high-rise in question. It is not yet...
