Ex-Muslim and Christian convert, Nonie Darwish, speaks on Islam:

Exclusive: Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law

In her latest book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law, author Nonie Darwish paints a chilling description of what lies ahead for Western civilizations that continue down the road of political correctness and appeasement as Islamic (Shariah) law creeps its way into free societies across the globe. Darwish, who was born in Cairo, and moved as a child to Gaza with her family, was raised Muslim – her father founding Palestinian fedayeen units which launched terrorist raids across Israel’s southern border. When Nonie was only eight, her father was assassinated by the IDF, after which he was recognized as a shahid, or martyr for Islam. Darwish immigrated to the United States in 1978.

Islamic Law and the ensuing threats to Western civilization are subjects Darwish discusses with a passion and knowledge borne only of one who grew up within it can have. Having left Islam as an adult and having converted to Christianity, she has shared her experiences in Islam with her first book, Now They Call Me Infidel. Now with her second book, Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law, she explains in layman’s terms the meaning of Shariah law and the implications that face those who embrace it. Nonie Darwish visited with FamilySecurityMatters.org to discuss the book:

Critical speech against Islam regarded as “incitement to imminent violence” by U.S. State Dept.

Lafferty Detained by State Department

Traditional Values Coalition (TVC) president Andrea Lafferty was targeted and detained by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security personnel this Wednesday during the closing event capping the three day closed-door conference advancing the implementation of U.N. Resolution 16/18.

“For weeks we have been asking whether the true aims of the Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and U.N. Resolution 16/18 would be used to apply “old fashioned techniques of peer pressure and shaming” to chill and coerce those critical of the Islamist agenda,” said Lafferty.

“Hillary Clinton was as good as her word,” said Lafferty.

Islam in NZ: Forced Marriage and Death Threats

[Hat tip: Octagongrappler]

Yet another Socialist multicultural ‘success’ story as the barbaric 7th century death-cult provides further evidence that it is incompatible with a modern Western society.

Forced marriage reporting set to increase

Hostage tells of prison in the suburbs

Is the media finally waking up to the fact that we have a problem here in NZ? – and that this problem is linked to Islam? I’m amazed, both articles actually highlight the fact that this is a Muslim family who forced their 17 year old daughter to marry a [Muslim no doubt] distant relative because “she was [becoming] too westernised”.

Spoonley: Just another Marxist Traitor?

[Hat tip: Octagongrappler for the link]

Is Professor Paul Spoonley just another Marxist traitor – one prepared to sell out New Zealand all in the name of so called ‘cultural diversity’ and minority interest groups?

Reading the following Spoonley article leads one to that very conclusion IMHO:

Paul Spoonley: State must uphold diversity to retain trust of citizens

[Spoonley:] Denis Dutton is keen to claim that the status and legitimacy of the state had been undermined by special rights for Maori. I would argue that the reverse is true.

A modern, democratic state can successfully gain the trust of its citizens only if it recognises the cultures of its various communities, majority and minority alike.

Perhaps Pakeha do feel aggrieved that this recognition has gone too far in the case of Maori, but an illiberal nationalism [whatever the heck that is] that curtails any recognition is not the answer.

Structural Inequality? New Study Claims Black People in Detroit Can’t Sustain Infrastructure Left Behind by White Flight

From SBPDL blog:

***WARNING*** If you are a cultural Marxist and/or ‘culturally aware’ do not, I repeat DO NOT read any further: There is a serious risk of having your world-view not only challenged, but damaged beyond any repair. You have been warned!

[Hat tip: Dondiego for the link]

“There are those who would blame white people for every problem in this nation [the U.S.]. Even white flight itself. White flight is just a natural defensive mechanism to escape the Black Undertow and the crime, property value drop, dereliction of infrastructure, and the decimation of the business district that follows this group.

The UN Push for Global Taxes

Here’s a little update about what ex Prime Minister of New Zealand and now head of the United Nations Development Programme, Helen Clark, has been up to. It’s not only the photo of ex dear leader which is scary.

[Emphasis mine. Hat tip: Mara]

by Joseph Klein

The United Nations launched the 2011 Human Development Report, entitled Sustainability and Equity: A Better Future for All, with great fanfare on November 2, 2011. Helen Clark, administrator of the largest and perhaps the most unaccountable, ethically-challenged of all UN bureaucratic agencies, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), presided over the ceremonies held in Copenhagen, Denmark. She was joined by Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Prime Minister of Denmark.

The hypocrisy of those who push the homosexual agenda

What’s that well known Christian saying – “Hate the sin, but love the sinner”. Well apparently Christians [and others] even “hating the sin” is ‘hateful’ according to many who push the homosexual agenda. How do you respond when confronting someone about their homosexuality – say nothing, or outline exactly what the scriptures say on the issue? Not to mention all the other evidence which exposes the truth regarding this so called ‘lifestyle’. Of course in most instances you’ll be labelled a ‘homophobe’ for your trouble. Read on for an interesting take on this subject by Dr. Scott Lively:

More from the ‘Pandering to Islam doesn’t work’ file

No spitting or pissing towards, or sleeping with your boots pointing towards Mecca for U.S Marines. Latest edict from on high. And people wonder why some of us suspect ol’ B. Hussein Obama – the Appeaser in Chief – of being a Muslim.

Marines Warned: Don’t Spit Toward Mecca

Uncle Sam is getting a little weird. Make that a lot weird. Having dumped hundreds of billions of dollars into a sinkhole called Afghanistan — populated by misogynistic, pederastic, tribalistic and religiously supremacist primitives — to no avail, he has hit on a new plan for winning those ever-elusive Afghan “hearts and minds.”

More intolerance and violence from the ‘Religion of Peace’

Yet another example of why the death-cult of Islam is incompatible with civilised society, and why further immigration and refugee intake from this backward ‘culture’ should be arrested forthwith. The social liberals who continue to sell out the West in this regard should also be held to account. Traitors one and all.

Euthanasia promoters back on the campaign trail

With the latest conviction for “assisted suicide” having been ruled on we see all the usual suspects coming out of the woodwork demanding a law change which would allow what amounts to state sanctioned murder.

Serial rapist and paedophile to be released

So despite having a high likelihood of reoffending, and that he shows no remorse or intention of staying away from children under 16 years of age Wilson will be released having served two-thirds of his 21 year sentence. Unbelievable! People like this should be subject to the death penalty in my opinion. The social liberals in our midst have destroyed the ability of the system to bring genuine justice where it is needed most. Shame on them!

‘Real’ risk Beast of Blenheim will reoffend

Stuff.co.nz – 02/11/2011

The sex offender known as the Beast of Blenheim is four times more likely than the average prisoner to reoffend if released, the Parole Board says.

In 1996 Stewart Murray Wilson was sentenced to 21 years in prison for sexually offending against women and girls over a 25-year period.

He would have served his sentence by September 2012, and will be released into the community.

Why is Democracy Failing in the West?

IMO democracy only holds together when the foundation of society is firmly based on Judeo-Christian principles and values. Inherent to this worldview is that government is not the be all and end all but, like the general population, is subject to Godly authority.

Soldiers told not to shoot Taliban bomb layers

Yet more political appeasement of Islamists who then, as a result, go on to murder Western soldiers. Words really do fail over the stupidity and treasonous actions of Western politicians and bureaucrats. Link

[Excerpts with emphasis mine]

British soldiers who spot Taliban fighters planting roadside bombs are told not to shoot them because they do not pose an immediate threat, the Ministry of Defence has admitted.

Cultural Marxists to Blame for Increasing Lawlessness

The Pound of Flesh

October 31, 2011 – 4:39 pm – by Richard Fernandez

[Excerpts – emphasis mine. Hat tip: Crusader Rabbit]

political correctness … undermined the Laws of War

Warfare is older than the modern state. When the Strategy Page described what it calls “vigilante warfare” by Israeli settlers on members of Hamas it might have been talking about a process of “going native”. In the Middle East the tradition of pre-Westphalian warfare is strong. Private war, from the action of clans against other clans to the sponsorship of belligerence by warlords never completely went out of style. The BBC described how Saddam Hussein promised to pay anyone who would kill a Jew. “A Hamas suicide bomber’s family got $25,000 while the others – relatives of militants killed in fighting or civilians killed during Israeli military operations – all received $10,000 each.” […]

Israel’s new airport security

[From Real Science, hat tip: Robertvdl]

TEL AVIV, Israel — The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners. It’s an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on your person.
Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling. It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials.
You’re in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion. Shortly thereafter, an announcement: “Attention to all standby passengers, El Al is proud to announce a seat available on flight 670 to London . Shalom!”

How feminism made so many nurses too grand to care

by Melanie Phillips

[excerpts]

Back in 2001, when Tony Blair was Prime Minister, I was invited to talk to him about the National Health Service. At that time, he was particularly exercised about reforming the NHS.

Sitting on the Downing Street sofa, I told him that the experience of my frail and elderly mother had left me shocked and aghast.

My mother, who suffered from multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease, had been hospitalised after a fall had fractured her hip. What appalled me was the lack of nursing care she received.

The moderate fanatics of the Islamist Winter

Melanie Phillips, as usual, introduces the hammer to the nail.

by Melanie Phillips

[excerpts]

It gets worse by the day. The lunacy of the west, that is, as the world teeters towards the precipice.

The ‘Arab Spring’ is turning just about everywhere into an Islamist winter. Libya has gone Islamist, with its new administration declaring that sharia law will rule. Sharia law is fundamentally anti-democratic, and Islamist theocratic regimes which adhere to its precepts are fundamentally anti-west.

I bet the Watermelons are loving this

But one must ask the question: Where are all the ‘green’ alternative energy options when a major gas supply is taken off-line?! If the enviro-Marxists had their way we would have no natural gas or oil-fired power generating capability, and yet it is hard to imagine ‘green’ options, such as wind, solar and tidal generation, ever replacing and coming anywhere near the power generating requirements of a country like New Zealand, or any other first world nation for that matter.

Gas leak from major pipeline could threaten supply
