Quite sometime ago I wrote an article entitled: Mother's Who Kill their Own Children the sole purpose of which was to expose the willingness of Muslim mothers to see their kids become martyrs.
As time went by, I began adding links to other articles about Mothers and their violence toward their children. As more time went by I realised that I had extended the scope of the article to include all female violence, and so created a new file entitled: The Other Side of Violence : Women abusing Children and Killing Husbands in which I began placing links to articles about the violent nature of women.
I did this in order to counter the one sided feminazi propaganda that women are all sugar and spice and that men are not nice.
Lately I have begun to pay attention to reports of violent crimes committed by juveniles. Over and above all of these matters of violence I also pay attention to Islamic violence, and in this article today, I want to draw attention to the issue of violence found in both Muslim and Western Societies.
The first article to which I would draw attention is entitled: Saudi defends gang-rape victim's verdict Wednesday Nov 21
- The 19-year-old Shi'ite woman from the town of Qatif in the Eastern Province and an unrelated male companion were abducted and raped by seven men in 2006.
- Ruling according to Saudi Arabia's strict reading of Islamic law, a court had originally sentenced the woman to 90 lashes and the rapists to jail terms of between 10 months and five years.
- It blamed the woman for being alone with an unrelated man.
- The court also took the unusual step of initiating disciplinary procedures against her lawyer, Abdul-Rahman al-Lahem, forcibly removing him from the case for having talked about it to the media.
- It also repeated the judges' attack against Lahem last week, saying he had "spoken insolently about the judicial system and challenged laws and regulations".
In this article we see two issues. One is the attitude toward women in this particular Islamic society; an attitude which makes the victim the offender. The other issue is the attitude toward the press, and the issue of not allowing the prestige of Islam and it's leaders to be disparaged.
This theme reoccurs in an article entitled: Egyptian blogger 'beaten in jail' : From Cynthia Johnston in Cairo, Egypt
- AN Egyptian blogger serving a four-year jail term for insulting Islam and President Hosni Mubarak has been beaten in prison and sent to an isolation cell, rights groups said today.
- Abdel Karim Suleiman, a former law student convicted in connection with eight articles he wrote since 2004, was the first blogger to stand trial in Egypt for Internet writings.
Such is the attitude of many 'politically motivated' Muslims toward the west, that not only is the United States considered the 'Big Satan' to Israel's 'Little Satan', but for some, merely speaking English is sufficient provocation for murder and mayhem.
Taliban kill boy for teaching English: By Elyas Wahdat in Khost, Afghanistan : November 15, 2007
- TALIBAN militants shot dead a teenage boy in southeastern Afghanistan for teaching English to his classmates, police said.
- "Taliban militants took the boy out and killed him outside the school just because he was teaching English to his classmates," said General Esmatullah Alizai, the police chief of Paktia province.
- Police arrived on the scene and in the ensuing gun battle, two policemen and two militants were killed, he said.
Islamic violence is of course not just restricted toward the West, a fact to which our attention is constantly drawn in relation to the events currently taking place in Iraq. Of course American traitors will constantly blame the United States for the violence that Muslim perpetrates upon Muslim. We see this type of 'blame game' in effect when anything related to Israel arises.
'93% of Palestinian kids suffer domestic violence' By Alex Geller
- New Family - an organization that promotes family rights - reported unnerving statistics on Sunday
- According to statistics gathered from the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics and the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion (PCPO), 93.3 percent of Palestinian children have experienced domestic violence, amounting to 1,950,739 children - 953,950 of whom are girls.
- According to attorney Irit Rosenblum, founder and chairperson of New Family, the issue affects more than just Palestinian households: "It is a global problem. The world is not paying enough attention to
- "The situation is getting worse and worse because people are poor," stated Rosenblum, "and
Israel needs to help."
- "Palestinian distress has many repercussions for Israeli society that may not be immediately apparent... the Palestinian regime is under our control, and they are considered to be our poor," she said. "This [issue] is the sparkplug of religious global conflict, and Israel is the door to the Third World - a world that influences the actions of fundamental Islam."
Everything wrong in the world is apparently Israel's fault, or is it's responsibility to fix, including the Fatah / Hamas infighting. West Bank university to halt classes over infighting By Khaled Abu Toameh
- The Bir Zeit University administration decided Tuesday to suspend studies until further notice following clashes on campus between supporters of Fatah and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
- Students said four men from the PFLP attacked a Fatah student in the dorms, wounding him seriously. The assailants used charcoal to burn the student's face. They also hammered nails into the victim's feet, the students said.
- According to the students, the decision to suspend studies came after Fatah gunmen appeared on campus and threatened to kill PFLP supporters.
But surprisingly enough (for some living in rose coloured glass houses) it is not just in Iraq or Palestine that Muslim turns on Muslim. Ethnic strife in Europe By Manfred Gerstenfeld Nov 19, 2007
- The problems involving non-Western immigrants in Europe may have escalated a step further on October 28, when major riots broke out between Turkish and Kurdish immigrants in Berlin.
- On that day an authorized demonstration was held, initially in favor of fraternity between Turks and Kurds. On its margins, however, were two unauthorized demonstrations. The subsequent riots were directly related to the battles around the Turkish-Iraqi border between Kurdish nationalists and Turkish soldiers.
- During the Berlin disturbances 18 policemen were wounded and 15 demonstrators arrested. In past unrest the police had always considered the attacks as coming from the Kurdish side. This time the initiators were Turks, some of whom chased Kurds with machetes.
One must ask how the defenders of Islam, (you know the ones - the ones who blame the U.S. and Israel for everything), can ignore the inherently violent nature of Muslims. Violence is part of their 'religion of peace', even as hundreds of years ago in Europe and a few decades ago in Ireland, 'violence' was part and parcel of Christendom.
That is not to say that violence no longer exists in Christendom. It is just that today, violence is perpetrated in the name of 'who knows what?' According to one of the reports above, 'third world' mentality and poverty (perhaps the same thing) are the true reasons behind violence. But if that were so one would hardly expect to see violence in Wealthy Westerners. Violence however is quite apparent.
Some blame violence on excessive wealth, excessive leisure time, insufficient counselling services, and governmental neglect. And while everyone openly or secretly blames parents for the violent nature of their children, every day secular society does it's best to deny parents the right to control or punish their children.
Not even the courts are willing to punish children. Teen bomber evades jail: by Jason Gregory November 20, 2007
- The Brisbane District Court heard Allan Hokit Cheung, 19, of Runcorn, in Brisbane's outer southeast, manufactured homemade chlorine bombs and then threw them at the family homes of two teenagers during an early morning act of revenge.
- "It was not a prank, it was an act of terror on innocent people for some perceived slight and the only thing stopping you going to jail is your age," Judge Shanahan said.
- Speaking outside court an emotional Pam Hall, who sold her Sunnybank Hills home following the attack and moved her family to Western Australia, said the sentence was a "joke".

- Police have arrested more than a dozen people in connection with the 11-year-old's murder.
Shocking rise in youth violence: by Renee Viellaris
- The baby-faced felons might be only 10 to 14 years old but they are committing shocking crimes and at similar rates as adults - at schools, on public or private transport and in the home - the latest police Annual Statistical Review has revealed.
- The revelations come as two boys aged 11 and 16 faced Southport Children's Court yesterday for allegedly bashing an off-duty police officer and his girlfriend at Coolangatta.
Violence today is rampant in societies whose very 'day-to-day' social conditioning promotes it. It matters not whether it be religion, Hollywood, or my insistence upon 'my rights', today we have people growing up with hearts empty of love, and full of contempt for authority, morality and the communities in which they live.
I find it strange that in an era in which corporal punishment has been banned because of it's apparent 'causal effect' in the perpetration of violence, that violence of a horrendous nature is being made more manifest on a daily basis, within the hearts of those who were 'spared' the rod which causes little hearts to become violent.
And who now could suggest that a return to corporal discipline is appropriate, when those very people unto whom such a right would be granted, are the very first rebellious and undisciplined generation to appear. Heaven forbid that they be entrusted with such a right.
'Softly Softly' is not the way to stem the tide of angst against the west, nor the method to protect our societies from the murderous intent of the Islamic world, and nor is it the way to deal with youngsters who have learned the easy way, that as long as they are minors, they can get away with murder.
Many years ago when I was a policeman, I talked with one of our neighbourhood little terrors (although by today's standards he was as innocent as a lamb). He told me that once he turned 18 years old, he would change his behaviour.
Unfortunately, he never made it to his 18th birthday.
