MFS - The Other News


                          Morning Posting.

  • And I Stoned Thee: The Sharia Basis for Stoning Adulterers.To elucidate what Islamic Law—Sharia—states plainly, I have included both modern (from Islam Online of the esteemed cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, whose regular Al-Jazeera program on Sharia is wildly popular, and in whose name the government of Qatar recently created the Al-Qaradawi Centre for Islamic Moderation) and classical Sharia rulings—the latter from the most important Hanafi Manual used amongst the vast Muslim populations of the Indian subcontinent, The Hidayah.

  • Iran stresses retaliation in case of any attack.An Iranian senior military official warned the country would not allow foreign ships travel in case of any inappropriate measure from the enemy."Any country which provides the enemy with base and paves the way for its military attack, is regarded as enemy to Iran and we have all military bases of the enemy under control."

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Saudi daily on Bushehr: Military option may be best solution.I wonder if the Saudis are worried enough about this to allow the Zionist entity's planes to cross their country on the way to Tehran.

  • Providence schools cut Jewish holidays.Some of US city's Jewish leaders concerned that public schools will not count Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur as official holidays this year.But school leaders say there is no need for concern.Somehow it sounds so late 1930's.


  • Muslim Critic of Ground Zero Mosque Says She’s Being Threatened by Property’s Owner.You may recall Raheel Raza, the Canadian Muslim who spoke out against the construction of the Ground Zero mosque on “The O’Reilly Factor” and through other media outlets.Today, she tells reporters she is being threatened by a fellow Muslim for her outspoken remarks.

  • Obama seeks new design for housing, Fannie/Freddie.The U.S. government's role in housing finance should undergo "fundamental change," but it should still provide some guarantees in the mortgage market, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Tuesday.Let me guess "Change?"

  • Is President Obama a Christian or Muslim?Although the president claims to be a Christian; why has he canceled The National Day of Prayer ceremonies at the White House his first two years in office? Could it be for the same reason that he bowed before the king of Saudi Arabia? He didn't feel compelled to bow to the Queen of England; why is that? No American president should ever bow before another world leader, period!

  • 'Obama won't hit Iranian reactor'.'Israel has days to strike Bushehr'.My take on this if someone threatens you with nuclear holocaust you wont mind giving that same someone some nuclear radiation!

  • State Land for the Shariah Index Project?CBS is reporting some strange noises coming out of New York tonight. Seems that Governor David Paterson is still thinking about a “compromise” that would allow the people behind the Ground Zero Mosque– and its Shariah Index Project– to relocate to state land nearby.Sources tell CBS 2’s Kramer that Gov. Paterson is concerned that Mayor Mike Bloomberg, a staunch supporter of putting the mosque at ground zero, and President Barack Obama, might be advising mosque leaders to dig in their heels and insist on the present location.

  • Why is Obama administration blocking import of surplus rifles?It's also more proof of the anti-gun agenda the Obama administration has been forced by political realities to keep under wraps during his first term.He may have erased his anti-gun wishlist from the White House website (an old tactic perfected by his ideological forebears), but his hostility to our right to keep and bear arms remains. He just doesn't dare show his hand. Yet.

  • Where's the Ground Zero Terror Mosque? 39 Experts Explain!

  • White House Releases Barack Obama's Official Passport. And, Yes, It's Redacted.

  • Groups warn oil spill may be worse than claimed.Researchers are warning that the Gulf of Mexico oil spill is a bigger mess than the government claims and that a lot of crude is lurking deep below the surface, some of it settling perhaps in a critical undersea canyon off the Florida Panhandle.

  • HT:GatewayPundit.Woah! LA OUTRAGED After Obama Fundraiser Shuts Down Traffic For Hours.Woah! Nice work Ace…Obama traveled to Los Angeles last night for a fundraiser at the home of a wealthy Hollywood producer and managed to pi$$ off the entire city after locking up traffic for hours.

  • Video:Obama at Odds With Scientists Over Gulf Oil Claims; ‘It Just Doesn’t Make Sense’."There's no way that the majority of the oil spilled into the gulf has disappeared... This crisis is not over."

  • Exclusive: BP Oil Spill Coverup.While officials claim most of the oil from America's worst-ever spill has disappeared, fishermen hired by BP are still finding tar balls—and being instructed to hide their discoveries.

  • Bloomberg's quiet investments in Sharia Finance: an ulterior motive in backing Ground Zero's Victory Mosque?Lower Manhattan's St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church once sat across the street from the World Trade Center's Tower Two. It was leveled during the catastrophic attacks of 9/11.For years, church officials have attempted to get permission to rebuild. Yet the New York Port Authority and other local bureaucrats have thrown every obstacle in the book at the rebuilding project. They said the proposed new church was too big and its dome too high -- even claiming that the structure could rise no higher than the WTC Memorial.

  • Irish Student Called a “Terrorist” After Joining the Israeli Defense Force.A 19-year-old Irish student complained on she was targeted by a hate campaign after returning from a two-month stint in the IDF, Irish Central reported Tuesday.

  • Ground Zero Mosque’s Hidden Websites: Follow the Shariah.What’s the goal? Maybe the Imam’s goal is not simply to force a provocative “insensitivity” about 9-11 on the American public, with the help of America’s elites. Maybe the Imam’s long-term goal is to force Shariah law on the American public – of course, again, with the help of America’s elites.Why don’t the 15 floors add up? How many floors does Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf need for the mosque portion of this triumphal Islamic command center planned for the two building sites at 45-47 Park Place in New York City?

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.Turkey has been jumping around like a spoiled child for the last three months demanding apologies, reparations, sanctions and who knows what else in response to the deaths of nine of its citizens who attacked IDF soldiers who were trying to board the Mavi Marmara with non-lethal weapons.The Turks have far worse than the Mavi Marmara in their own closets, and I'm not just talking about the Armenian genocide. It's time for some of those skeletons - some of them actually quite recent - to be reawakened. It seems that the 'western' Turks have long escaped international scrutiny for the fact that they conduct wars in ways that ought to be familiar to Iraqis, Iranians and Cambodians. The Turks are no better than the rest of them.Read the rest here.

  • HT:MotherJones.Map: Where You Can—And Can't—Build Your Mosque.As "mosque mania" seizes the nation, what's a peaceful Muslim who wants to set up a house of worship or community center to do?

  • Desperation Grows Over Pakistan Flood Damage.LAHORE, Pakistan — With disastrous flooding spreading yet more widely in Pakistan, reports of looting and protests over food on Tuesday deepened the sense of desperation across Punjab Province, the country’s most populous region and its agricultural hub.Flood survivors told stories of taking the search for aid upon themselves, swimming to dry areas to find food for people still marooned and waiting for rescue.As many as 8.5 million people in Punjab have been affected, and property damage is in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

  • Turkey's Government Accused Of Power Grab.Turkey's AK Party, with roots in Islam, has consolidated power, and the military has seen its revered place in Turkish society diminish. Some of those who favor a modern Turkish state -- including civilian control over the military -- worry that in the name of democratic reform the government is accumulating too much power.

  • CEDAW asks Turkey to end headscarf discrimination.The UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) has devoted its final observations with regards to a recent two-week meeting on Turkey to the controversial ban in the country on the use of Islamic head coverings in the public sphere, asking Turkey to end its discrimination against covered women.Another sign Turkey is drifting toward Radical Islam?

  • The Decline of U.S. Naval Power in the Shadow of China.Helprin lays out the diplomatic dance with historical precedent and chronicles the consistent decline in U.S. military power in the shadow of China’s build up. According to Mark, “The whole thing is going down hill very very rapidly and it’s because the Obama administration does not see American military power as a desideratum.”

  • Stoning Of Afghan Couple For Adultery Sparks Debate On Shari’a Law.Afghan President Hamid Karzai has added his voice to those condemning the Taliban-orchestrated execution by stoning of a young couple charged with adultery.The stonings in the northeastern province of Kunduz on August 15 are considered the first such executions ordered by the Taliban since their overthrow from power nine years ago.

  • David Paterson expects to meet soon with mosque developers.New York Gov. David Paterson, who last week sought to entice the backers of a proposed mosque near Ground Zero to consider another location, expects to meet soon with the Islamic center's developers, a spokesman for the governor said Tuesday."We are working with the developers on a staff level but there have not been any formal discussions between the governor and Imam or developer," said spokesman Morgan Hook. "However, we expect to have a meeting scheduled in the near future."

  • A Holocaust Survivor’s View on Islam.Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts — the fanatics who threaten our way of life.

  • Who, or what, is causing this carnage to our seals? Scores are washed up dead with horrific 'corkscrew' injuries.The bodies of more than 50 common and grey seals have been found on the Norfolk coast since November.The injuries are not consistent with any known phenomenon, such as those caused by fishing nets or boat propellers, although researchers believe they are mechanically produced by a rotating single blade.More on this topic here.
