Muslim women – now limited travel, Egypt, not doing much better

So much for International Women’s Day.

Does anyone really think we have any shared values with these muslim folks around the world? Are we not regressing as far as our planet earth evolving forward in giving all inhabitants more enjoyment of life?  The news this time comes from India and Egypt. The women in Egypt who were excited to participate in the day’s festivities were marred by attacks. “In Egypt’s Tahrir Square, women attacked at rally on International Women’s Day”.CS Monitor  

“We fought side by side with men during the revolution, and now we’re not represented,” said Passat Rabie, a young woman who came with friends, after men aggressively dispersed the protest. “I thought Egypt was improving, that it was becoming a better country. If it’s changing in a way that’s going to exclude women, then what’s the point? Where’s the democracy?”

Now the news from India:  Women should not travel more than 48 miles from home without male chaperone’

Its ruling was based on the Hadiths – the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad during his lifetime. The 48 mile limit is believed to reflect the maximum distance one could then travel by camel or horse in one day through dangerous desert.

The ruling was made by the Darul Uloom Deoband, the leading Islamic university founded in northern India in 1866, which has millions of followers from Bangladesh and Pakistan to Muslim communities in Britain.

Its fatwa was issued after a female follower had asked: “Is a married woman permitted to travel to another country with her female sibling?”

In a reply on the Deoband website, she was told:”She cannot travel without a ‘mehram’ [male relative]. It’s mentioned in the Hadees that a woman should not travel for more than 48 miles except in the company of a ‘mehram’ relative.”

Its response, which was delivered on International Women’s Day, provoked anger among Muslim women activists who said it was based on conditions in the Arabian peninsula more than 1,400 years ago and no longer relevant in the modern world. Telegraph UK

Border Patrol nabs 100s of terror-linked illegals

 

One really must wonder what the end game is for Obama and his crew is on our national security. He must know that another attack on Americans will invoke an outcry and investigation into all of these stories that fall under the radar. While everyone is in a tizzy over the hearings in D.C. on the radicalization of  American muslims today by Peter King. The Congress and the American people remain silent on stories like this. Watching the decline of our democracy is not an easy thing. What happened in Wisconsin and the warped view  of the Media as to what is taking place, leaves me to believe I am in a parallel universe. I have started reading foreign papers as much as I can… we have a link on the right side of our home page…. and I am appalled as to how we appear to the world. The perception of our Democracy has taken a bad hit. SEIU climbing through windows. Democrats fleeing the State. What would we say if this happened abroad? Welcome to Anarchy.

The U.S. Border Patrol captured 59,017 “Other Than Mexican” illegal aliens, and among the nations are four nations on the State Department’s list of “State Sponsors of Terrorism” – Cuba, Iran, Syria and Sudan.

Seven hundred and twelve of those arrested were from Cuba, 14 from Iran, 5 from Sudan, and five from Syria. Others come from Somalia (9), Afghanistan, (9), Pakistan (37), Saudi Arabia (5) and Yemen (11), according to Judicial Watch.

Overall, U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended 663 “Aliens from Special Interest Countries,” the report said. These countries are deemed “special interest” because of their suspected ties to terrorism.

Hundreds of illegal aliens from terror-linked nations such as Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan, Iran and Syria have been nabbed by the U.S. Border Patrol sneaking illegally into the country, and an organization that monitors government’s actions and prosecutes malfeasance says given Barack Obama’s record on border security, it’s not a surprise.

The terror-linked illegals were among the 463,382 individuals apprehended being smuggled – or smuggling others – across the U.S. borders during 2010, according to federal documents obtained by Judicial Watch.

The federal documentation, obtained by Freedom Watch under a Freedom of Information Act procedure, revealed that 8,905 illegal aliens were caught smuggling others.

Eric Holder, OBAMA go after the New York Firefighters

I caught Michael Savage last night and he was on this story. Yes, and Obama is accountable for this. Short and sweet. I know Holder believes in “his people” as he says, but this is America. Eric Holder must go. Why he is being tolerated, Michael has his thoughts, but I digress. In case you have not caught this insult to our brave men and women of the FDNY who gave it all on 9/11, here tis:

American Spectator:

See what the Obama DoJ is doing to the FDNY, even AFTER Ricci v. DeStefano should have put this sort of thing off-limits. Heavily edited, this still gives the flavor of it:

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s obsession with racial grievance-mongering could get Americans burnt to a crisp in their own homes. That’s because his Justice Department is trying to force the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) to hire flunkies who got 70 percent wrong on a basic, fire-related multiple-choice, open-book test. The exam was used to screen applicants to the fire academy. More than 90 percent of black and Hispanic test-takers passed, which isn’t enough for liberals addicted to affirmative action…. On Feb. 28, Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, submitted a proposed order for damages for rejected applicants who scored 25 or higher on the 85-question exams. New York’s taxpayers would be forced to pay compensation to the flunkies to make up for years of seniority supposedly lost when the city chose not to hire them. Minority rejects also would receive seniority over firemen who had been working all the while.
