UK Judge Allows Anjem Choudary To Preach Hate While On Bail

Radical Muslim hate preacher Anjem Choudary, who was arrested and then released on bail from police custody after a counter-terroism sweep in the UK, is now back on London streets spewing his hate.

Even though he's on bail, district judge Howard Riddle decided that Choudary and 6 others who were arrested can go back to preaching because it was in violation of religious freedom.  Apparently, as part of their bail conditions, they were not allowed to set up their little 'dawah' (Islamic proselytizing) stalls. That's now changed. Riddle said:

“The dawah stalls are a significant part of the current investigation."
“However, it is accepted that the dawah stall has an ostensible purpose to spread the word of Islam and to proselytise. Religious freedom is of considerable significance.”
The others that were arrested:

Choudary and his brother Yazandi were arrested on 25 September along with Shakil Chapra, Siddartha Dhar, Abdul Muhid, Mohammed Rahman, Mohammed Shamsuddin and Anthony Small.
Anthony Small is a Muslim convert and former boxer with his own YouTube channel. He has also calls for Muslims to take over England.

Dhar supposedly took off for Syria with his wife and 4 kids.

Choudary claims he never stopped preaching anyway.

 “It’s a nonsense anyway. I never stopped my dawah, I never stopped doing my work online and in cafes. Street dawah is just one way of doing this."
“It’s an abuse of process. It’s an abuse of what you would call human rights, they should remove the other conditions. I’ve been raided four or five times and they’ve never found anything – I’ve got less now than I had then.”
Muslim radicals do not deserve the right to freedom of speech or religion.

Dutch Mother Rescues Jihadist Daughter From ISIS

So, Monique, this Dutch mum, treks on over to Raqqa, Syria, to retrieve her Muslim convert daughter Aicha after she traveled there to join ISIS. Aicha allegedly changed her mind, but can you really trust a radicalised Muslim?  I certainly wouldn't.

Both daughter and mum were arrested in Turkey because daughter has no passport.  Mum could also face criminal charges upon her return to Holland, since "provision of assistance" to terrorists is a crime.

TX Prosecutor Punished For Wrongful Conviction Of Innocent Man

Ken Anderson, a former prosecutor who then went on to become a judge, will suffer the consequences (though not much) of having intentionally sent an innocent man to jail for 25 years.

Today in Texas, former prosecutor and judge Ken Anderson pled guilty to intentionally failing to disclose evidence in a case that sent an innocent man, Michael Morton, to prison for the murder of his wife. When trying the case as a prosecutor, Anderson possessed evidence that may have cleared Morton, including statements from the crime's only eyewitness that Morton wasn't the culprit. Anderson sat on this evidence, and then watched Morton get convicted. While Morton remained in prison for the next 25 years, Anderson's career flourished, and he eventually became a judge.

In today's deal, Anderson pled to criminal contempt, and will have to give up his law license, perform 500 hours of community service, and spend 10 days in jail. Anderson had already resigned in September from his position on the Texas bench.

What makes today's plea newsworthy is not that Anderson engaged in misconduct that sent an innocent man to prison. Indeed, while most prosecutors and police officers are ethical and take their constitutional obligations seriously, government misconduct--including disclosure breaches known as Brady violations--occurs so frequently that it has become one of the chief causes of wrongful conviction.

What's newsworthy and novel about today's plea is that a prosecutor was actually punished in a meaningful way for his transgressions.

Meaningful? Not really. I don't think that 10 days in prison, 500 hours of community service or the loss of a law license can ever make up for the quarter of a century an innocent men lost while languishing in jail. But it's something.

This needs to happen more often.

Bush Family and Zionists Financed Hitler, Claims Venezuela Muslim MP

Here's a good one regarding Hitler, the Nazis and WW II: it combines both the "blame it on Bush" and "blame it on the Zionists" conspiracy theories.

In a video on Hizbullah's Al-Manar channel, Muslim Venezuelan MP Adel Al-Sughayar (chairman of FEARAB- a federation of Arab societies in Latin America- claims that Hitler was financed mostly by Zionists and the George Bush family prior to WW II in order to destroy Europe and

"impose the American economy and the dollar currency on it."
 "Hitler killed those Jews who belonged to progressive organizations... You will not find on those lists any representatives of global Zionism."

Watch the Memri Video here.

He's not the only one who has these bizarre theories. There are a plethora of non-Muslim, non-Arabs who believe the Jews financed Hitler.

Berkeley Students' Reactions to ISIS Flag and Israeli Flag

Ami Horowitz performs a little experiment at U.C. Berkeley, California.

He waves both the ISIS flag, and the Israeli flag. Not surprising which flag got the negative reaction.

Virginity Tests For Female Police Recruits In Indonesia

As part of the application process, female police recruits in Indonesia are subjected to a "two finger virginity test."

Not only is this discriminatory, it's degrading, and the procedure is not even performed in private.

Only in a Muslim country.

Human Rights Watch interviews some of the traumatized applicants in this video.

The Kurds of Rojava- Syria's Other Revolution Few Have Heard Of

Documentary filmmaker Mehran Bozorgnia and producer and narrator Darius Bazargan's latest video for BBC's Our World shows a fascinating effort in northern Syria to create a multi-ethnic mini-state by Kurds. It's called Rojava- and includes mainly Kurdish areas near Aleppo, Kobane and Qamishli.

A "representative democracy based on equality, pluralism and self-sufficiency"- where all religions co-exist peacefully, and women have equal rights- is being cobbled together by a bunch of left-wing Kurdish radicals.

These are the people fighting ISIS.

Communism is a flawed system, but if they can make it work, and somehow stabilize that region, God speed.

Muslims Discovered The Americas, Claims Turkey's President Erdogan

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claims Christopher Columbus did not discover the Americas, it was actually a bunch of Muslim sailors in 1178 that have that honor.

He shared those thoughts with some Latin American Muslim leaders at a summit in Istanbul.

“Contacts between Latin America and Islam date back to the 12th century. Muslims discovered America in 1178, not Christopher Columbus."
“Muslim sailors arrived in America from 1178. Columbus mentioned the existence of a mosque on a hill on the Cuban coast."
There are a few other Muslims who believe the same thing.

In one contentious article published in 1996, historian Youssef Mroueh cites a diary entry by Columbus that described what seems to be a mosque in Cuba.
However, some understand the passage to be a metaphorical reference to the shape of the landscape.

So now Erdogan wants to build a mosque in Cuba.

“I would like to talk about it to my Cuban brothers. A mosque would go perfectly on the hill today."

Right-o, because Mroueh claims Columbus saw a mosque makes it true. Not. Blogger Jason Colavito debunks that theory.

Remarking on the position of the river and port, to which he gave the name of San Salvador, he describes its mountains as lofty and beautiful, like the Pena de las Enamoradas, and one of them has another little hill on its summit, like a graceful mosque. The other river and port, in which he now was, has two round mountains to the S.W., and a fine low cape running out to the W.S.W.

This reminds me of the slew of Muslims who believe that Jesus Christ was a Muslim. That we all are Muslims, never mind that Judaism and Christianity pre-date Islam.

Wishful thinking.
