"At the same time, I suggested she could read passages from the Koran for support, as we’re both Muslims."

 

However, when he arrived home the father found his child dead with 39 wounds to its body, the majority of which were caused by the holy book.

 

The 28-year-old mother was subsequently charged with murder, with an alternative charge of aggravated manslaughter.

 

“The woman intentionally killed her child. She smothered it to death and the Koran was the murder weapon,” prosecutor Anders Johansson said in court, according to Expressen.

Female bombers target Nigeria trade show, petrol station, three dead

Female bombers target Nigeria trade show, petrol station, three dead | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Two female suicide bombers blew themselves up at a trade show and a petrol station in northern Nigeria's biggest city of Kano on Monday, killing one other person and injuring at least six others, police and a military source said. The other suicide bomber at the petrol station killed herself and another person, the military source said, without giving further details of that blast. They were the latest bomb attacks to hit Kano, the commercial hub of mainly Muslim northern Nigeria, in 24 hours. Also on Sunday, a female suicide bomber killed herself while trying to target police officers.

Pulp Ark's insight:

A female suicide bomber is believed to be responsible for the explosion at Kano Polytechnic. If true, this would mark the fourth female suicide bomber to detonatefor Boko Haram in three days. http://www.thewire.com/global/2014/07/deadly-explosion-at-nigerian-college-likely-boko-haram/375317/

In Leaked Tape, Hostile Obama Tries to Force PM to Accept Truce

In Leaked Tape, Hostile Obama Tries to Force PM to Accept Truce | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Damning evidence has emerged of US President Barack Obama's dismissal of Israel's position in favor of supporting the position of Hamas and its allies during ceasefire talks.

 

A "senior US official" leaked an audio recording of a telephone conversation between Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu toChannel One. In it the 35-minute conversation, which took place on Sunday, the US President appears downright hostile at points, and even cuts off Netanyahu in the middle of his protestations over a one-sided truce proposal which would have seen Hamas receive all its key demands, but that Israel ultimately rejected.

US evacuates embassy in Libya amid clashes in Tripoli | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The State Department has shuttered the U.S. embassy in Libya and evacuated American staffers there as the security situation in the capital Tripoli deteriorates amid worsening clashes between rival militias.

 

The battle in Tripoli began earlier this month when Islamist-led militias -- mostly from the western city of Misrata -- launched a surprise assault on the airport, under control of rival militias from the western mountain town of Zintan. On Monday, a $113 million Airbus A330 passenger jet for Libya's state-owned Afriqiyah Airways was destroyed in the fighting.

Iraq: Attack on prisoner convoy kills 60 people | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Gunmen attacked a prisoner convoy north of Baghdad on Thursday, setting off a gunbattle with troops in which scores of prisoners and eight soldiers were killed, brutally underscoring Iraq’s instability as lawmakers convened to elect a new president.

 

U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon arrived in Baghdad earlier Thursday, urging lawmakers to “find a common ground” so they can address the crisis sparked by the rapid advance of the Islamic State extremist group and allied Sunni militants across much of northern and western Iraq last month.

Independent posts op-ed about Gaza by extremist who supported Al Qaeda attacks on 9/11

Independent posts op-ed about Gaza by extremist who supported Al Qaeda attacks on 9/11 | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Mads Gilbert is a Norwegian doctor, commentator and “radical Maoist politician” who openly supported the “moral right” of Al Qaeda to murder thousands of Americans on 9/11, and who,  argued that the world’s oppressed have an inherent “moral right to attack the USA with any weapon they can come up with”.


He visited Shifa Hospital in Gaza during the 2008-09 war in Gaza and, according to NGO monitor, “repeatedly and falsely accused Israel of deliberately targeting civilians” while making “no mention of evidence that Al-Shifa hospital has been used for military purposes”.


As with his previous visit to the hospital in 2009, Gilbert has failed to acknowledge that the hospital is reportedly being used for military purposes and has actually become “a de facto headquarters for Hamas leaders”.

Muslim Doctor Takes Up Knife and Now Wants to Kill Christians

Muslim Doctor Takes Up Knife and Now Wants to Kill Christians | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Feisal Bin Shaman Al-Anzi is a Saudi doctor whose story sparked public controversy throughout the Middle East. His family went all over the media and were claiming that he was simply a humanitarian who treats patients at his clinic in Mosul Iraq.

 

The questions about his whereabouts came up as Al-Anzi was killed, somehow, and he was announced as a casualty of the ISIS. But photos of him taken in his last days in Mosul show a different story altogether.

 

Just how many Muslim doctors are there who give the hippocratic oath while in the closet they give oath to Jihad will never be known. But it gets to prove that education and the appearance of civility are not evidence for not being involved in terrorism. Educated folks can be savages.

Over 700 Syrians Were Killed Last Week. But Jews Didn't Do it, So the Media Doesn't Care | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

From reading the international and national news you would probably never have known that last Thursday and Friday alone, over 700 people were killed in Syria at the hands of jihadists and pro-Assad forces. Muslim on Muslim, Arab on Arab, human on human, whatever you like to think of it as - Western media is doing an awful job of reporting these abhorrent incidences - and I think I know why.

Pakistan mob kills woman, girls, over 'blasphemous' Facebook post

Pakistan mob kills woman, girls, over 'blasphemous' Facebook post | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The dead, including a seven-year-old girl and her baby sister, were Ahmadis, who consider themselves Muslim but believe in a prophet after Mohammed. A 1984 Pakistani law declared them non-Muslims and many Pakistanis consider them heretics.

 

Police said the late Sunday violence in the town of Gujranwala, 220 km (140 miles) southeast of the capital, Islamabad, started with an altercation between young men, one of whom was an Ahmadi accused of posting "objectionable material".

 

"Later, a crowd of 150 people came to the police station demanding the registration of a blasphemy case against the accused," said one police officer who declined to be identified.

 

"As police were negotiating with the crowd, another mob attacked and started burning the houses of Ahmadis."

 

The youth accused of making the Facebook post had not been injured, he said.

 

"Police were there but just watching the burning. They didn't do anything to stop the mob," he said. "First they looted their homes and shops and then they burnt the homes."

Why Liberals Love Islam

Why Liberals Love Islam | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Why do Progressives, liberals, and leftists love Islam? Why are Islamists not wholly reciprocal in that love, and only grudgingly tolerate them? Why do Progressives, liberals, and leftists refuse to identify Islamic doctrine as the cause of terrorist attacks, and demonstrate in their denials contorted states of mind once only attributable to schizophrenics and the mentally ill with multiple personalities?


The Progressives – a.k.a. socialists – see Islam, with its head-to-foot regulation of Muslim behavior and existence, as a friend and ally that will help them to vanquish capitalism and Western civilization. That is their mutual end. “Moderate” Muslims assure us that Western precepts of law and freedom can be reconciled with Islam. They cannot. If Islam is doctrinally a totalitarian ideology, it cannot and will not be reconciled with individual rights. Capitalism and freedom do not sanction or advocate the forcible conquest of socialists and collectivists, unless the latter initiate force against the former. Islam and Progressivism do sanction and advocate the initiation of force.

He sustained a severe laceration to his right wrist, and was transported to a nearby hospital by medics.

 

Officers served a search warrant on Thursday on the mosque, located in a house in the city's Overbrook section, where they arrested Merv Mitchell, also known as Mabul Shoatz. They recovered a 2-foot-long machete from the scene.

Afghan Girl, 10, Slated for Honor Killing After Being Raped

Afghan Girl, 10, Slated for Honor Killing After Being Raped | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

A 10-year girl in Afghanistan is in danger of being honor-killed by her family after being violently raped by a mullah in a local mosque after her Quran class. After the family openly talked about killing the girl, the mullah offered to marry her, claiming to the authorities that he thought the girl was 17 and that the sex was consensual.

 

After nearly dying from her injuries sustained during the rape due to a delay in medical care, “Women for Afghan Women,” a shelter for battered women and children arranged for the girl to be taken to a hospital. Her injuries included a severing of the wall between her vagina and rectum that caused hemorrhaging.

 

Honor killings of girls who have been raped are common in Afghanistan, as family members believe that the raped girl brings shame to the family. Moreover, a girl who has been raped is considered not fit to be married and therefore must be supported by her family.

Islamic State kills 270 in Syrian gas field 'massacre' | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Jihadists have killed 270 Syrian regime fighters, civilian security guards and employees since seizing a gas field in Homs province, a monitoring group said Friday.

 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights described Thursday's takeover of the Shaar field as "the biggest" anti-regime operation by the Islamic State (IS) since it emerged in the Syrian conflict last year.

 

The watchdog, updating an earlier toll of 115, said it had documented "the death of 270 people killed in the fighting or executed" since Thursday.

 

"A large majority of the men killed were executed at gunpoint after being taken prisoner following the takeover of the camp," said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman.
