"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.

Islam in Australia: Living and dying for the flag of Allah

Islam in Australia: Living and dying for the flag of Allah | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

I’m not comfortable personally holding the (Australian) flag because this flag does not represent me as a Muslim. My flag is the flag of Allah. That’s my flag.

 

For me to have the Shahada flag, as it’s called, that’s a flag that I stand and live and die for and I don’t stand and live and die for the Australian flag.

ISIS claim capture of Japanese “photographer” (or “doctor”) in Aleppo, Syria

ISIS claim capture of Japanese “photographer” (or “doctor”) in Aleppo, Syria | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The consensus is that the man held captive is indeed military contractor Haruna Yukawa and he is certainly not a photographer or doctor, and that he has ties to the FSA, opposed by the Islamic State and the Syrian government.

 

However, Mr Yukawa’s fate is still uncertain and many of the original videos posted on YouTube have disappeared. This is unusual, since IS et al usually have no qualms about boasting of their activities in dealing with infidels and the like.

Why Is the Islamic State Behaving This Way?

Why Is the Islamic State Behaving This Way? | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an by the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess” [Koran 4:24]. This is a verse from the Qur’an which is still in force, and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex-slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point—there is no disagreement from any of them. [...] When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.

Up to 3,000 women and girls kidnapped by Islamic State jihadis in Iraq

Up to 3,000 women and girls kidnapped by Islamic State jihadis in Iraq | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

These are the faces of six of the thousands of innocent Yazidi children who have suffered harrowing ordeals in Iraq this month.

 

Up to 3,000 women and girls have been kidnapped by Islamic State jihadis in the north of the country in just a fortnight - and hundreds of men who refuse to convert have been shot dead.

 

The kidnappings appear to have happened in villages where residents took up arms against IS - and the women are being held separately from the men in IS-controlled Tal Afar, east of Mount Sinjar.

The Obama Doctrine: Pretend to Give a Damn–Until You Don't Have To

The Obama Doctrine: Pretend to Give a Damn–Until You Don't Have To | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Because Obama doesn’t truly care. At all. He is a master emotional manipulator, capable of achieving effective posturing when it comes to the suffering of innocents. That’s why the media constantly swoon at his “tone” and his “attitude” during his press conferences. They repeatedly praise his “anger” or his “determination.” But they rarely ask just what he’s doing to fight evil.

 

Any deployment of power will be short-term and ineffective. Obama will do all he can for innocents up until the moment when he doesn’t have to do so. Then he’ll leave them to die.

 

Now, Obama has done the same in Iraq. He will drop a few bombs. He will bluster. Then the world’s attention will turn to some other crisis, and Obama will blithely move on, leaving erstwhile allies to die.

 

This is no groundbreaking revelation. President Obama has always cared far more about appearances than realities. He bobs like a cork on the waves of crisis, skipping to and fro, always carefully attuning his public emotions to achieve the most sympathetic effect. If brief shows of force are necessary, Obama is unafraid to engage in them. But he is unwilling to make any commitment to taking the lasting action that actually effects change. To do that, he would have to lead rather than follow.

ISIS militants 'massacre 80 Yazidi men and kidnap 100 women and girls in northern Iraq after they refuse to convert to Islam'

ISIS militants 'massacre 80 Yazidi men and kidnap 100 women and girls in northern Iraq after they refuse to convert to Islam' | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

'They arrived in vehicles and they started their killing this afternoon,' senior Kurdish official Hoshiyar Zebari told Reuters yesterday. 'We believe it's because of their creed: convert or be killed.'

 

The women and girls abducted from the village, situated around 12 miles south of Sinjar, were being taken to the ISIS-controlled cities of Mosul and Tal Afar, the official said.

 

Yesterday, Yazidi parliamentarian Mahama Khalil said the alleged massacre had taken place during a one-hour period.

 

'He told me that the Islamic State had spent five days trying to persuade villagers to convert to Islam and that a long lecture was delivered about the subject today,' said the villager.

 

'He then said the men were gathered and shot dead. The women and girls were probably taken to Tal Afar because that is where the foreign fighters are.'  

 

Islamic State militants have killed at least 500 members of Iraq's Yazidi ethnic minority during their offensive in the north, according to Iraq's human rights minister.

 

Mohammed Shia al-Sudani said the Sunni militants had also buried some of their victims alive, including women and children. Some 300 women were kidnapped as slaves, he added.

 

The minority group is originally Aryan and has retained a fairer complexion, blonde hair and blue eyes by only marrying within the community.

 

But in a furious bid to convert all non-Muslims, ISIS jihadists have vowed to impregnate the hostages.

 

Addressing the kidnapping, Adnan Kochar, chairman of the Kurdish Cultural Centre in London, told MailOnline: 'The Kurds and Yazidis are originally Aryans. 

 

'But because the Yazidis are such a closed community they have retained a fairer complexion, blonder hair and bluer eyes. They don't marry non-Yazidis.

 

'ISIS have taken around 300 women from Sinjar to give to jihadists to marry and make pregnant to have a Muslim child. If they can't kill all Yazidis, they will try to smash the blond bloodline.'

Why aren't British Muslims condemning the maniacs?

Why aren't British Muslims condemning the maniacs? | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

The Muslims mistakenly parading themselves as jihadists 'defending' Islam are plumbing new depths of horror in their vicious campaign to impose a 7th-century Islamic tyranny across large swathes of Iraq and Syria.


Indiscriminate slaughter, public beheadings and systematic starvation are all features of their murderous campaign, propped up by pernicious propaganda that inspires awe in their followers and fear in their victims.


What is particularly disturbing is the support given to the militants by many deluded British Muslims. It has been estimated that more than 500 young British men have gone to fight in the Syrian civil war.


Many of them are now moving across to Iraq to become volunteers in the Islamic State movement, which aims to resurrect a medieval-style caliphate in the region.

Obama’s Message to Islamic State: Behead and Crucify All, Just Don’t Get Near Our Oil or We Will Bomb You

Obama’s Message to Islamic State: Behead and Crucify All, Just Don’t Get Near Our Oil or We Will Bomb You | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Obama stated that the strikes were necessary to prevent genocide, to protect Christians and other religious minorities whose lives are in danger, and to halt the IS advance. The airstrikes are the first that have been authorized in Iraq by the United States since 2011. 

What is notable, however, are the circumstances surrounding the initiation of the bombing and what may have prompted American military action now, after allowing ISIS (entirely funded, directed, created, and armed by the West – notably the United States) to seize vast swaths of territory across Iraq. 

Why bomb Iraq now you might ask? And why bomb the area surrounding Erbil? 

The answers to this question lie in the simple fact that the area surrounding Erbil – the Kurdish region of Iraq – is a “hub for US oil companies.”

Women stoned to death in Syria for adultery

Women stoned to death in Syria for adultery | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

A cleric read the verdict before the truck came and dumped a large pile of stones near the municipal garden. Jihadi fighters then brought in the woman, clad head to toe in black, and put her in a small hole in the ground. When residents gathered, the fighters told them to carry out the sentence: Stoning to death for the alleged adulteress.


None in the crowd stepped forward, said a witness to the event in a northern Syrian city. So the jihadi fighters, mostly foreign extremists, did it themselves, pelting Faddah Ahmad with stones until her body was dragged away.

Obama Lifts Ban on Libyans Attending U.S. Flight Schools, Training In Nuke Science

Obama Lifts Ban on Libyans Attending U.S. Flight Schools, Training In Nuke Science | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Less than two years after the deadly terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is poised to sign off on an amendment reversing the ban, which was enacted following a wave or terrorist attacks in 1980s and prevents Libyans from studying these sensitive trades in the United States.

 

The original law effectively disqualified all Libyan nationals and those “acting on behalf of Libyan entities” from training in “aviation maintenance, flight operations, or nuclear-related fields,” according to the ban.

 

DHS said the prohibition is irrelevant now since the United States and Libya have worked to “normalize their relationship,” according to the directive approved by the OMB.

ISIS beheads missing American journalist James Wright Foley

ISIS beheads missing American journalist James Wright Foley | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Graphic footage of the execution appeared in a video titled 'A message to the US', in which an apparently coerced Foley, 40, recites a pre-prepared script presumably given to him by his captors which he delivers unflinchingly to the camera.

 

Kidnapped in Syria on Thanksgiving 2012 while working for the GlobalPost agency, Foley brands the US government his real killers and denounces the country of his birth, while his soon-to-be murderer stands over him dressed in black robes and armed with a small knife and gun.

 

Dressed in an orange jumpsuit, with his head shaven, Foley's voice is strong, but he often pauses to take deep breaths and appears to struggle at times to swallow as he battles against fear.

 

The executioner, who speaks directly to the camera in what appears to be a British accent, then blames President Barack Obama for Foley's death before he brutally beheads the brave reporter in front of the camera.

What is Wrong with ISIS, is What is Wrong with Islam

What is Wrong with ISIS, is What is Wrong with Islam | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Every news report insists that ISIS is an extreme outlier, but if that were really true then it would not have been able to conquer sizable chunks of Iraq and Syria. ISIS became huge and powerful because its ideology drew the most fighters and the most financial support. ISIS is powerful because it’s popular. 

ISIS has become more popular and more powerful than Al Qaeda because Muslims hate other Muslims even more than they hate America. Media reports treat ISIS as an outside force that inexplicably rolls across Iraq and terrorizes everyone in its path. In reality, it’s the public face of a Sunni coalition. When ISIS massacres Yazidis, it’s not just following an ideology; it’s giving Sunni Arabs what they want.

Yazidis Commit Mass-Suicide After Rape by Islamic State Fighters

Yazidis Commit Mass-Suicide After Rape by Islamic State Fighters | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

In yet another harrowing chapter in the tragic plight of Iraq's Kurdish Yazidi population, eyewitnesses have described how girls raped by Muslim fighters from the "Islamic State" (formerly ISIS) committed suicide en-masse after returning to their families, as evidence of systematic rape by Islamists against non-Muslims continue to surface.

 

Among the tens of thousands of Yazidi refugees trapped in the Shingal mountains while fleeing IS's deadly advance through Iraq, several survivors told Kurdish Rudaw TV how a group of three girls were returned after being abducted and raped - only to hurl themselves off a cliff after being traumatized by their ordeal.

 

The Yazidi religion is indigenous to Kurdistan, and Yazidis themselves are  ethnically-Kurdish. But unlike many other Kurds, they largely avoided intermarriage with surrounding Arab tribes and thus a many of them maintained a strikingly fair "Aryan" complexion, with blond hair and blue eyes. By raping their women, IS fighters "complement" the slaughter and forced-conversions of the Yazidis by impregnating them and breaking their bloodline, according to one leading Kurdish activist.

 

"The Kurds and Yazidis are originally Aryans. But because the Yazidis are such a closed community they have retained a fairer complexion, blonder hair and bluer eyes. They don't marry non-Yazidis," Adnan Kochar, chairman of the Kurdish Cultural Centre in London, explained to the Daily Mail.

 

"ISIS have taken around 300 women from Sinjar to give to jihadists to marry and make pregnant to have a Muslim child. If they can't kill all Yazidis, they will try to smash the blond bloodline," he said.

ISIS Buries 500 Yazidis Alive, Orders Others to Convert to Islam or Die | The Pulp Ark Gazette | Scoop.it

Not every Yazidi resident in northern Iraq escaped before the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, captured towns in the region. The terrorist group told the people to convert to Islam or die, killed 500 of them, buried some alive, and took hundreds of girls as slaves.

 

"We have striking evidence obtained from Yazidis fleeing Sinjar and some who escaped death, and also crime scene images that show indisputably that the gangs of the Islamic State have executed at least 500 Yazidis after seizing Sinjar," said human rights minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani. "Some of the victims, including women and children were buried alive in scattered mass graves in and around Sinjar."

 

"In some of the images we have obtained there are lines of dead Yazidis who have been shot in the head while the Islamic State fighters cheer and wave their weapons over the corpses," he said. "This is a vicious atrocity."

Reports Saturday indicate that Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) forces in Iraq have killed 700 members of a tribe in eastern Syria over the last two weeks, and killed hundreds of the Yazidi ethnic minority on Friday and Saturday in massacres in northern Iraq.

 

The terror group fell upon the Iraqi village of Kocho on Friday, after local Yazidi's refused their ultimatum to convert to Islam or be murdered, according to reports by local Yazidis and Kurds. IS terrorists killed at least 80, taking a number of women and children captive in the process.

 

The violence continued on Saturday, as another 312 Yazidis were slaughtered in northern Iraq, apparently in the same village.

IS has been committing various atrocities against the Yazidi's, including burying victims alive and selling others as slaves.

Readers were also told that Muslims must "obey the Khaleef according to the Shariah" - a reference to Shariah law, a fundamentalist interpretation of Islam which is propounded by the Islamic State, previously known as Isis.
