Maine: House Democrats vote to allow female genital mutilation

By a final vote of 77-70, the House killed the FGM ban in a mostly party-line vote…Last week House Democrats passed a toothless bill that wouldn’t actually ban FGM.”

Why did they do this? Flagrant Islamopandering, trying to get the votes of Maine’s growing Somali Muslim community. FGM is mandated in Islamic law: “Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr ‘clitoris’ [this is called khufaadh ‘female circumcision’]).” — ‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3, translated by Mark Durie, The Third Choice, p. 64

Why is it obligatory? Because Muhammad is held to have said so: “Abu al- Malih ibn Usama’s father relates that the Prophet said: ‘Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women.’” — Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75

“Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah: A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to her: ‘Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.’” — Abu Dawud 41:5251

Unless and until its Islamic justifications, which everyone seems to want to cover up and deny, are addressed, FGM will never be eradicated. Anti-FGM movements will tell Muslim women (and men) about the health risks of FGM, and about how barbaric it is to work to deny women sexual pleasure and try to control them, and none of it will stop FGM. All that will wash over believers and what will be left will be the fact that it is justified in Islam — and that is the one thing the anti-FGM campaigners refuse to address. So they will, unfortunately, never succeed.

“Maine House Democrats Vote to Allow Female Genital Mutilation,” Maine First Media, April 19, 2018 (thanks to Creeping Sharia):

Following swift action from Maine House Democrats on the last day of the legislative session, there will be no Female Genital Mutilation ban in the Pine Tree State.

After months of pretending they wanted to stop the barbaric ritual child abuse of FGM, the Democrat caucus showed their true colors on the issue late Wednesday night.

By a final vote of 77-70, the House killed the FGM ban in a mostly party-line vote. Rep. Cathy Nadeau (D-Winslow) was the only Democrat who crossed the aisle to protect young daughters of immigrants in Maine from this brutal abuse.

Republican Rep. Heather Sirocki of Scarborough points out Democrats voted to kill an FGM Ban in April, which is Child Abuse Prevention Month. And in fact, they did it on the “Week of the Young Child.”

Rep. Sirocki says Maine House Democrats initially decided to table the bill with the intent of letting it cowardly die without the courtesy of a vote. However, supporters of the ban made their voices heard.

“Playing games with a child abuse bill is shameful,” Rep. Sirocki said. “Finally, after hours of phone calls from all over the country and state urging Speaker Gideon to relent, she brought the bill to the Floor at 10:30 pm. The Democrats like to talk about victims’ rights, women’s rights, child advocacy, human rights, and justice — but their votes on this horrific form of child abuse do not back up all of their talk.”

The same FGM Ban bill killed in the House, passed the State Senate 30-5, with only the most far-Left Senators voting against it.

Last week House Democrats passed a toothless bill that wouldn’t actually ban FGM. Rep. Karen Gerrish of Lebanon called the show-vote a sad state of affair for young, female Mainers.

“It was a feel-good vote that I suppose will make it appear that they voted to ban FGM — they did not,” Rep. Gerrish said.

But late Wednesday night the show was over….

Not just in Israel: Muslims in Germany shoot from their cars

The Muslim tradition of shooting into the air during wedding celebrations, as well as while accompanying the bride and groom’s vehicle, is not limited to Israel.

In Germany, for instance, many immigrants from Muslim-majority nations have not assimilated into German society. Instead, they continue their Muslim traditions, including blocking traffic and shooting live bullets randomly in the air while driving to celebrate weddings.

A recent report by the Gatestone Institute’s Soeren Kern discussed Muslim violence in Germany’s schools and society. The report showed that one school with 99% migrant students had to hire security guards to protect teachers and students from “unruly” students.

The report also showed that videos of beheadings were “commonplace” at German schools, and the Muslim “practice” of taharush resulted in non-Muslim women being sexually assaulted by a group of Muslim males at an outdoor festival.

Meanwhile, a March survey conducted by the Civey Polling Institute, showed that most Germans (54.6%) do not believe that “Islam is part of Germany.” An additional 19.7% responded Islam is “probably not” part of Germany.

I paid off my wife’s student loans — then she filed for divorce after two years of marriage

Dear Moneyist,

Before I married my wife two years ago, she had huge amounts of debt to her name, including large amounts of student loans. After we married, we diligently almost paid everything off, helped by my salary being three times that of my wife.

She recently asked for a divorce, saying she was taking the house and my retirement. My question is: Does the fact we paid off her debts she held before get spread evenly? Had I not paid all of her debts our net worth would be near the same with a better outcome for me.

Read also: Behold, the biggest financial secret to a happy marriage

We’ve only been married a few years, and frankly I can’t help feeling taken advantage of. The only advice I can find discusses whose responsibility the student loans would be, but now it just seems that she got me to pay all of her debts, and got some new stuff, while I threw away years of my life.

Please tell me there’s hope.

Squeezed in Fort Worth

Dear Squeezed,

I’m sorry you feel squeezed or played. But I can’t argue with that. After two years, that’s a tough break, especially given all the help you gave your wife with her student debt. That’s a particularly unusual kind of debt, in that it’s virtually impossible to discharge. So if your wife was planning to wipe out some debts with your help before she filed for divorce two years after your marriage, that was the one to wipe out first.

The good news: Texas is a community property state so, where you have not co-mingled your assets, you take out of the marriage what you brought into it. Unfortunately, that doesn’t include the money you gave your wife to pay off her loans. But if you had a home before you married, for instance, you will walk away with that. Document all your financial transactions with your wife. The court has discretion to divide community property in a way it deems fair and reasonable.

Abortion Clinic Caught Injuring Woman in Botched Abortion Has Inured 60 Other Women in Botched Abortions

A medical emergency that took place last month at Little Rock Family Planning, an abortion facility located in Little Rock, Arkansas, has opened the door to learn more about a dangerous increase in life-threatening abortion complications at that facility since the start of 2018.

It began on March 31, 2018, when pro-life activists photographed an ambulance at Little Rock Family Planning.

Pro-life activist Mary Silfies told Operation Rescue that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for 911 records related to the incident was denied by the Little Rock City Attorney “because it involved a juvenile.”

 

A close inspection of the CAD printout revealed under one of the redactions that the young patient suffered hemorrhaging and lacerations.

The 911 recording, which had information about the patient’s condition removed, indicated that the patient was located “in the procedure room with the doctor.” This was an indication that the patient’s condition was serious, otherwise, she would have been sent to the side or back door of the abortion facility for ambulance pick-up.

 

However, the recording did contain a revealing question at the end of the conversation between the 911 dispatcher and the abortion facility caller.

“Alright, do you have AED there,” asked the dispatcher, to which the call replied in the affirmative.

AED is short for “automated external defibrillator,” which is used to check a patient’s heart rhythm and can send a shock to restore a normal heartbeat. It is also used in the event of a cardiac arrest.

“The fact that the dispatcher was inquiring about the presence of the AED was another indication that young woman was in pretty bad shape,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

In addition, Silfies also was able to obtain a printout that contained all service requests for ambulances to the abortion facility’s address that contained 61 incidents dating back to 1999. One of the incidents included in the printout was for a different location, leaving 60 calls originating from the Little Rock Family Planning abortion facility over the past 19 years.

In all 60 cases, including the emergency involving the juvenile on March 31, 2018, patients were transported to the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences (UAMS) Hospital for emergency medical care that could not be provided at the outpatient abortion facility.

This data shows that an average of medical emergencies requiring emergency ambulance transport from Little Rock Family Planning is just over three per year.

However, there have already been four such emergency transports in the first three months of 2018 alone. This put the abortion facility on track for a record-breaking number of abortion injuries.

“Whatever is going on at the Little Rock Family Planning is posing a serious danger to women,” said Newman. “With these incidents on the rise, women must be warned that if they walk into that abortion facility, they may come out on an ambulance gurney. This place is just not save for women or their babies. It should be shut down!”

Canada: Muslim stabs ex-girlfriend 40 times, slits her throat, shoots her for “taking ownership of her life”

Abderrahmane Bettahar was raised in a culture of violence that calls for the beating of disobedient women. The Qur’an says: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” (Qur’an 4:34)

And in a hadith, Aisha, Muhammad’s child bride, says that Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” (Sahih Muslim 2127)

 

“Calgary woman killed by ex was stabbed 40 times, shot twice, police reveal,” by Carly Stagg, CBC News, April 18, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A 22-year-old woman who died last month at the hands of her ex-boyfriend was stabbed 40 times and had her throat slit before being shot twice as she tried to escape her attacker, police say.

Nadia El-Dib’s body was found behind a home in northeast Calgary on March 25. Her killer, Abderrahmane Bettahar, 21, died four days later in a shootout with RCMP officers near Edmonton.

Because there will be no trial and the case is considered closed, Calgary police released details of El-Dib’s last moments Wednesday at the request of her family.

Police say they believe Bettahar and El-Dib left a downtown shisha bar together at around 3 a.m. on March 25. Despite having dated in late 2017, the two weren’t in a relationship at the time, police say.

Around 4 a.m., El-Dib contacted a friend to tell them Bettahar was refusing to take her back to her car.

Police say that fifteen minutes later, he parked behind a house in the 1000 block of Maitland Drive N.E., where Bettahar repeatedly stabbed El-Dib.

El-Dib managed to escape the vehicle, despite her injuries.

Bettahar followed and shot her twice with a semi-automatic rifle that police say he purchased legally two weeks before the attack.

Evidence showed El-Dib was on the ground when Bettahar fired the second shot.

El-Dib’s body wasn’t found until 9:30 a.m., despite several witnesses reporting hearing gunshots.

Her sister, Racha El-Dib, called Bettahar “a disturbed young man, who believed he had the right to murder her because she exercised her right of taking ownership of her life, body and soul, by saying no to a man who was persistent on being with her.”…
