Another gang rape reported in eastern India

Another gang rape reported in eastern India | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

Police have arrested seven people for allegedly raping a co-worker's wife and aunt in India's West Bengal state, reports say.


A rash of rapes in India has sparked widespread outrage over chronic sexual violence and government failures to protect women.

 

Police officer Sanjay Singh said the seven suspects were detained on Wednesday within hours of the crime on Tuesday night in Mukti Rachak, a village 25 miles (40 kilometers) north of the provincial capital, Kolkata.

 

The victims were also cut by blades and are currently being treated in a hospital. The suspects allegedly raped the women after a fight with their co-worker over a road building project, Singh said.

 

The incident came weeks after a woman was allegedly gang raped in the state on the orders of village elders for having an affair.

The fatal gang rape of a 23-year-old woman on a bus in New Delhi in December 2012 triggered nationwide protests.

Police in Pakistan Torture a Christian Family Because Their Son Married a Muslim Girl

Police in Pakistan Torture a Christian Family Because Their Son Married a Muslim Girl | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it
LAHORE, Pakistan: The family of a Christian boy named Akram Masih, to include the females, were severely beaten and tortured by Policemen and Muslim extremists in Multan, Pakistan. These policemen entered his home by climbing the walls. They arrested the boy and placed him under their custody because he had contracted a marriage with a Muslim girl named Maria Bibi, who is from District Shiekhupura.

Advocate Sardar Mushtaq Gill of Human Rights Defender and Chief of LEAD was contacted by Moderator Bishop Asher Kamran of the Methodist Church of Pakistan, requesting legal assistance for the boy’s release. He also stated that he had already submitted an application to the IG in Punjab, Lahore requesting dismissal of the false FIR No.1093/2014, that was registered at Police Station Factory Area, Shiekhupura, in which the boy was arrested. The police had also booked one Christian relative of the boy from Lahore.

The Christian boy, originally from Multan and the Muslim girl from Sheikhupura, fell in love with each other over the phone. The girl left her home and went to see her lover in Multan, where they both got married, according to Islamic Sharia law. The boy had changed his name to Muhammad Akram and converted from Christianity to Islam to save himself and his family from police and extremists, but the conversion proved useless on his arrest.

The police took the couple and the other Christian relative arrested, from Multan and locked them up in the Police Station Factory Area, Shiekhupura.

The father of the other arrested Christian man named Kherait Masih also contacted Aric John, Advocate of the High Court, and senior counsel of LEAD, for legal assistance for his son, who is totally innocent.

Mr. Gill, along with Aric John made contact with the concerned SHO and handed over all documents for proof of the couple’s marriage and the conversion of the boy from Christian to Muslim. The SHO said that the boy would be appearing in the court of Mr. Matieon Rehman, Judicial Magistrate, Tehsil Courts Ferozwala, District Shiekhupura to record a statement under section 164 Cr. PC and if the girl gives a statement that substantiates the boy’s claim, the police would release them.

Although, the next day, both of the Christians appeared before the court, where upon pressure from the Muslim extremists developed. Mr. Gill was also instructed and directed by other lawyers of the concerned Bar Association to be careful because two days earlier in a similar case, one man was shot dead in the courtroom during the hearing.

The couple was given a chance in front of the magistrate to talk to each other by ordering the lawyers from both sides to vacate the court room, but the girl betrayed him and recorded her statement against the Christian boy with tears. Both Christian boys were then sent to judicial lockup. The boy disclosed to Mr. Gill that the girl was threatened by her family, that if she gave a statement in his favour, they would kill them both. He satisfied himself by saying that she had actually saved his life by recording the statement against him.

It is forbidden under Islamic Sharia law for a Muslim woman to marry a Christian man. Although, a Muslim man is allowed to marry a Christian woman. It is permitted for a Muslim woman to marry a Christian, but only after his conversion from Christianity to Islam. In Pakistan, the level of religious extremism is too high to tolerate the marriage between a Christian man and Muslim woman, even if the Christian converted to Islam.

This is the main reason for the lack of religious liberty, freedom and the grave violations of fundamental human rights in Pakistan.  It is also the main cause of Christian persecution and misuse of Islamic Blasphemy Laws that are used to persecute the religious minorities.

Saudi Arabia faces outcry over death sentence for Shia faith leader

Saudi Arabia faces outcry over death sentence for Shia faith leader | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it
Nimr Baqir al-Nimr’s conviction for sedition adding to unrest and promoting sectarian hatred, says Human Rights Watch

Saudi Arabia is facing an international outcry and accusations of promoting sectarian hatred after a Shia Muslim religious leader from the country’s volatile eastern province was sentenced to death.

Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr, who led protests in Qatif at the height of the Arab spring in 2011, was convicted on Wednesday of sedition and other charges in a case that has been followed closely by Shias in the kingdom and neighbouring Bahrain.

Shia Muslims make up 10%-15% of the population of Sunni-ruled Saudi Arabia, which bills itself as playing a lead role in the fight against the jihadis of Islamic State (Isis) in Syria and Iraq. Riyadh has supported Sunni groups fighting to overthrow Bashar al-Assad but denies backing Isis.

State prosecutors had reportedly asked for Nimr to be crucified. The sentence is thought likely to be commuted on appeal.

Nimr was arrested in 2012 and ill-treated during his two-year detention, much of it spent in solitary confinement. He was denied surgery for bullet wounds suffered when he was arrested. He was charged with “disobeying the ruler”, “inciting sectarian strife”, and encouraging and leading demonstrations.

In Iran, Saudi Arabia’s chief regional rival and the political centre of the Shia world, the foreign ministry warned on Thursday that execution would have “dire consequences”. It called Nimr an ayatollah, giving him the second most senior clerical title in the Shia hierarchy. Iran, like Saudi Arabia, uses capital punishment.

In London the Foreign Office stated that it was aware of the sentencing, adding: “The UK opposes the death penalty as a matter of principle.”

The Saudi authorities have portrayed the cleric as an “instigator of discord and rioting”. But Nimr’s supporters and family have denied that he incited violence.

In a BBC interview, Nimr said he backed “the roar of the word against authorities rather than weapons”. The arrest of his brother and other relatives after sentencing has fuelled anger that is being ventilated on Twitter and other social media.

“Saudi Arabia’s harsh treatment of a prominent Shia cleric is only adding to existing sectarian discord and unrest,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “Saudi Arabia’s path to stability in the eastern province lies in ending systematic discrimination against Shia citizens, not in death sentences.”

Amnesty International described Nimr’s sentencing as part of a wider Saudi government crackdown on dissent.

Shia and Sunni groups said they were extremely alarmed by the sentence. “Ayatollah al-Nimr is a respected Muslim figure in Saudi Arabia,” 10 organisations said in statement. “He is a faith leader, reformist and human rights activist, who has campaigned for an end to discriminatory laws against the Shia minority. The sentencing will further inflame sectarian tensions and provide encouragement to extremist groups such as Isis to continue their persecution of religious minorities.”

Toby Matthiesen, a Cambridge expert on Saudi Arabia, said: “In the last two years Nimr has become known by Shia across the world. For many Salafis and Sunnis with anti-Shia leanings he has become a real hate figure. In the context of Isis, the Saudi royal family is trying to legitimise itself in the eyes of Sunnis by being tough. Nimr was a revolutionary who called for non-violent protests and the downfall of the Al Saud, but also for Assad to go. He wasn’t sectarian.”

Yusif al-Khoei, of the London-based Al-Khoei Foundation, said he was “appalled” by the news and with others was considering boycotting a Saudi-organised conference on inter-religious dialogue in Vienna.

• This article was amended on 17 October 2014 to correct the spelling of Toby Matthiesen’s surname and to clarify the quote from him at his request.

Britons fighting in Iraq and Syria may face treason charges if they return

Britons fighting in Iraq and Syria may face treason charges if they return | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it
Foreign secretary Philip Hammond believes offence of treason could have been committed by Britons fighting alongside Isis. Photograph: Neil Hall/Reuters
British jihadis who go to fight in Iraq or Syria could be tried for treason, the foreign secretary has suggested.

Philip Hammond said such people had “sworn personal allegiance” to Islamic State (Isis) and could potentially have committed the offence.

Lord Haw Haw – real name William Joyce – was the last person to be prosecuted for treason in Britain, and was hanged in 1946 for his Nazi propaganda broadcasts.

The offence remains on the statute books, even though the death penalty has been abolished.

Questioning Hammond in the Commons, Tory backbencher Philip Hollobone said: “Given that, with the assent of this House, Her Majesty’s armed forces are now engaged in military action against Islamic State, given that we have all witnessed on television the beheading by a British jihadist of British and American aid workers, and given that the offence of treason still exists, but has not been used since 1946, will the foreign secretary ensure that British jihadists who return from Iraq and Syria are prosecuted for the offence of treason?

“Their actions are treachery against Her Majesty, and aiding and abetting enemies of Her Majesty is one of the greatest offences a British citizen can commit.”

Hammond replied that there were “a number of offences under English law with which returning foreign fighters can be charged”.

He said: “We have had a discussion about the allegiance question. We have seen people declaring that they have sworn personal allegiance to the so-called Islamic State.

“That does raise questions about their loyalty and allegiance to this country and about whether, as my honourable friend rightly says, the offence of treason could have been committed.

“I will certainly draw his remarks to the attention of the home secretary, who ultimately will be the person who needs to look at this.”

What are your chances of catching Ebola?

What are your chances of catching Ebola? | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it
Critics call the government's response to Ebola "shambolic" as a national exercise to test Britain's readiness for an outbreak takes place. But what danger does the killer virus pose to Britain?

Ebola virus disease, or EVD, was first identified in 1976 near the Ebola river in Congo. The World Health Organization (WHO) has recorded more than 20 outbreaks since then, all beginning in Africa.

Scientists think Ebola was first introduced to humans by people living in remote jungle areas handling infected wild animals like fruit bats, apes and monkeys.

The disease is a haemorrhagic fever, causing internal and external bleeding along with a wide range of other symptoms that progress rapidly.

Although the deadliest strain has been known to kill up to 90 per cent of infected patients, the WHO says the average fatality rate is around 50 per cent.

There is no known cure or vaccine.

How bad is this outbreak?

According to the latest WHO figures, there have been 8,033 confirmed cases and 3,865 deaths in 40 weeks, making this by far the deadliest outbreak of Ebola in history.

Liberia is the worst-affected country, with 2,210 deaths, followed by Sierra Leone (879 fatalities) andGuinea (768 deaths).

'Fake' Birmingham Balti is 'finished' says cook Madhur Jaffrey

'Fake' Birmingham Balti is 'finished' says cook Madhur Jaffrey | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

TV curry queen courts controversy by calling Balti a 'craze' and saying dish will be forgotten as people's tastes become more sophisticated

TV curry queen Madhur Jaffrey is set to infuriate thousands of spicy food lovers after she claimed Birmingham’s famous Balti was “finished.”

The telly cook dismissed the Balti as a “craze with no authentic origins which will slowly die as people’s tastes turn to more complex dishes”.

Her controversial comments, made at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, came ahead of National Curry Week, which begins on Monday.

The Balti was thought to have been invented in a Birmingham curry house in 1977.

It gained nationwide popularity throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

It was believed to have been named after the bowl in which it is served, rather than a cooking technique.

But food writer Ms Jaffrey, who became a household name with her BBC cooking shows, said the Balti had “origins in no place we would want to visit”.

Ms Jaffrey said it was easy to cook but was not traditional Indian food.

She said: “I studied the Balti phenomenon quite a few years ago.

“Around the 1980s, I really studied the Balti and whether it had any authenticity or not.

“I think it was just a craze.

“It was just a version of cooking.

“I don’t think it has origins in any place we would want to visit.

“I think it will slowly die.

“People like it, they obviously get a kick out of it.

“But I don’t think it has authentic origins.”

The dish was believed to have originated at Adil’s Restaurant in Balsall Heath.

Balti houses originally clustered along and behind the main road between Sparkhilland Moseley, to the south of Birmingham city centre – referred to as the ‘Balti Triangle.’

The UK curry market is now believed to be worth £4 billion-a-year.

But some diners still claim it is impossible to get a ‘proper’ Balti outside the urban West Midlands.

Ebola outbreak: Second patient arrives in Germany

Ebola outbreak: Second patient arrives in Germany | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

A hospital in the German city of Frankfurt-on-Main has taken in an Ebola patient after he was flown in during the night under tight security. After arriving on a medical flight from West Africa, the man was brought to Frankfurt University Hospital where he was placed in an isolation ward.

He is a Ugandan doctor who worked with Ebola patients in Sierra Leone.

It is Germany’s second case, with a man undergoing treatment in Hamburg after arriving from West Africa in August.

In West Africa more than 3,338 people have died in the world’s worst outbreak of the virus.

There have been 7,178 confirmed cases, with Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea suffering the most.

‘Adrenaline rises’

The Frankfurt hospital said the patient’s arrival had gone well.

“I am confident that the patient can get good treatment,” Professor Rene Gottschalk told reporters.

Staff, he said, had been trained to handle Ebola patients, adding “but still, the adrenaline levels naturally go a little higher when a real patient is brought in.”

Giving details of the sufferer, Hesse Minister of Social Affairs Stefan Gruettner said he had been working for an Italian aid organisation in Sierra Leone and had helped Ebola sufferers there before becoming infected himself.

UK drops charges against ex-Guantanamo inmate

UK drops charges against ex-Guantanamo inmate | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it
Moazzam Begg to be released on Wednesday after seven terrorism charges related to Syria are dropped at pre-trial review.

Moazzam Begg, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, has been released from prison after UK prosecutors dropped seven terrorism-related charges against him linked to the conflict in Syria.

Begg, 45, was among four people arrested in February under suspicion of allegations including that he had attended a "terrorist" training camp in Syria.

Begg appeared before a pre-trial review at the Central Criminal Court of England and Wales on Wednesday via video from the high security Belmarsh prison when the court formally acquitted him of all charges.

He spoke only to confirm his name and did not react as no evidence was offered by the prosecutor following a review of the case.

He is expected to be released from the southeast London jail later on Wednesday.

Previous release

Begg was held by the US government at Bagram detention centre in Afghanistan then Guantanamo Bay for three years before being released without charge in 2005.

He was arrested in Pakistan in February 2002, suspected of being a member of al-Qaeda. 

Begg had travelled to Afghanistan with his family in 2001, but had left after the US invasion.

After being freed from Guantanamo and returning to the UK, he frequently spoke out about human rights abuses at Guantanamo Bay and founded Cageprisoners, a human rights organisation that lobbies on behalf of those held at the high-security prison located in Cuba.

Concern has been mounting in Britain over the number of nationals travelling to Syria to help rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad. 

Police fear they may become radicalised or attend armed training camps before returning to the UK where they could pose a security risk.

CDC confirms Dallas patient has Ebola virus

CDC confirms Dallas patient has Ebola virus | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it
Up to 12 people could be infected with Ebola including five children, it was revealed today, as health officials scramble to contain the deadly virus following the first diagnosis on U.S. soil. 

The family of the male sufferer, who recently arrived in Texas from Liberia, could be at risk,
ABC News reported on Wednesday. EMTs who transported the patient were also deemed at risk but had received the all-clear today.

The man, who arrived in Dallas on September 20, is said to be critically ill and has been kept in isolation since Sunday. The patient, has not been identified but is believed to be married and have children. He is 'awake, talking and asking for food', doctors said today.

However there are fears of the disease spreading because the man was in the U.S. for almost a week before being isolated.

The patient showed no symptoms of the disease while traveling but began to develop signs on September 24 and sought medical care two days later at Texas Presbyterian Hospital - where he was dismissed with antibiotics.

On September 28 he was rushed to hospital in an ambulance and quarantined before Ebola was confirmed. It raises the frightening prospect that he was mixing freely with others for a full four days while showing symptoms of the virus - the time when Ebola is most contagious.

Belgium tries 46 over jihadist links

Belgium tries 46 over jihadist links | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

Forty-six people have gone on trial in Antwerp on charges of belonging to a group that sent jihadists to Syria, the largest case of its kind in Belgium.

Prosecutors say the Sharia4Belgium organisation sent recruits to militant groups such as Islamic State (IS).

Only eight of the accused appeared in court. The rest are thought to be on the frontline - or dead - in Syria.

European governments are increasingly worried about the risks posed by their citizens fighting in Syria and Iraq.

IS militants spearheaded an assault across northern Iraq this summer, adding a belt of territory there to the areas under their control in Syria.

The US, and its European and Arab allies, have responded with air strikes on IS-held territory.

More than 3,000 European Muslims are thought to have gone to Iraq and Syria to fight for IS and groups that share its ideology, such as al-Qaeda-allied Jabhat al-Nusra.

European security agencies fear that jihadists who return from those countries could mount attacks on domestic targets.

National prostitution ring 'smashed'

National prostitution ring 'smashed' | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it
A national prostitution ring in which women are believed to have been trafficked to the UK and forced to work in brothels has been smashed, police have said.

Fifteen people were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to manage and control brothels after raids on homes in the Midlands and south of England on Tuesday and Thursday.

All have been released on police bail.

Det Ch Insp Ally Wright said it was a "sophisticated and organised" set-up.

The Warwickshire Police officer said the ring was discovered after a property in Nuneaton was investigated.

"Females were, for want of a better way of phrasing it, being rotated on a weekly basis.

"So this raised the prospect that human trafficking or sexual exploitation were the root cause and this led us to other addresses through the country," he said.

Two homes in Nottingham were raided, two in Warwickshire, and one each in Reading, Slough, Wolverhampton, Torquay and Finchley, in London.

The women suspected of being made to work as prostitutes are believed to be Chinese and Malaysian, a Warwickshire Police spokeswoman said.

'Threats and violence'
The British Red Cross was involved in advising on the raids and remains on standby to provide support, temporary housing and aid to victims.

A spokeswoman said no such assistance had been requested as yet.

Det Ch Insp Wright said the perpetrators abused vulnerable women "to make substantial profits".

"They [the victims] come to this country and go through a process of indoctrination, subject to coercion, some intimidation, some threats and violence.

"By the time they are put out to work, effectively under the control of organised criminals, they are so fearful it's difficult for them to come forward and present themselves as being victims," he said.

Phones, cash and banking details recovered by police during the raids are now being examined as part of the investigation.

Woman thrown out of Paris for wearing Muslim veil

Cast members performing La Traviate at the Bastille Opera opera house in Paris 'objected strongly' to the presence of a woman in the audience wearing a niqab-type veil

.

France's Socialist government today pledged to toughen up its anti face-covering law after a veiled Muslim woman was ejected from a major Paris opera house.

In an incident which has divided opinion in the city's liberal arts community, cast members performing La Traviate 'objected strongly' to the presence of a woman in the audience wearing a niqab-type veil.

'A singer spotted her in the front row during the second act,' said Jean-Philippe Thiellay, director of the Bastille Opera, which was opened by Socialist president Francois Mitterand in 1989.

'Some performers said they didn't want to sing,' said Mr Thiellay, who confirmed that she was kicked out.

There has been a ban on Muslims covering their face in public in France since the introduction of a law in 2011.

Women living on housing estates on the outskirts of major cities like Paris are regularly criminalised with a fine, but this is the first incident of someone being ejected from an artistic venue. 

So far unnamed, she is believed to be a well-off woman from a Gulf State, and was attending the performance with a friend. 

Referring to a security guard, Mr Thiellay said: 'He told her that in France there is a ban of this nature, asked her to either uncover her face or leave the auditorium. 

'The man asked the woman to get up, they left. It was unpleasant getting her to leave.

'But there was a misunderstanding of the law and the lady either had to respect it or leave,'

Man detained for attempted PC murder

Man detained for attempted PC murder | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

A man who stabbed two police officers has been detained in a secure psychiatric hospital indefinitely.

Dawan Ismail, 32, was convicted of attempted murder last month.

Manchester Crown Court heard officers were called last April to a report that Ismail had assaulted his neighbour in Stamford Street, Old Trafford.

Ismail confronted them before stabbing PC Adnan Ali in the head three times and slashing his face and neck. PC Pete Goulding was stabbed in the shoulders.

Ismail was also found guilty of assault and wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

PC Ali, who has been working with Greater Manchester Police for 10 years, said he managed to call for backup after the attack.

He said: "I remember him trying to keep getting at me with the knife. Pete was trying to get him off and I went to stand up but felt my legs go from underneath me.

"I remember my sergeant standing over me, checking my injuries and I told her, 'don't tell my family, don't let them know what's happened, that I've been hurt, until we get to the hospital'.

"I didn't think I'd make it out of that room alive."

'Pride in the uniform'

Both constables were treated in hospital for stab wounds.

PC Ali spent five months undergoing rehabilitation and counselling before returning to work.

"After the attack my mum asked me to maybe consider doing something else, but I love this job," he said. "I feel pride wearing this uniform and I'll carry on attending 999 calls and being there for those who need my help."

Both officers received bravery awards from Greater Manchester Police in June.

Supt Jim Liggett said: "This case demonstrates the daily dangers faced by our officers when responding to incidents.

"What seemed like a routine callout turned into a violent assault that left two officers seriously hurt."

ISIS Takes Yet Another Key Iraqi City

ISIS Takes Yet Another Key Iraqi City | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

ISIS on Monday achieved yet another major victory – taking over the beleaguered city of Heet on the edge of Anbar province in Iraq. ISIS was able to enter the city, on the western side of the Euphrates river, after Iraqi troops withdrew.

 

ISIS forces are said to control about 80% of Anbar Province, US officials said.

 

The evacuation came Sunday night, a spokesperson for the Iraqi government said. “Our military leaders argued that instead of leaving those forces exposed to attacks by ISIS, they would be best used to shore up the defense of Asad air base,” the official told news agencies. The base is considered one of the last bastions in the defense of Anbar, and officials fear that if it falls, the road to the provincial capital of Ramadi will be wide open.

 

Asad, northwest of Heet, is one of the last military bases in the region under government control. Officials said that it would be easier to defend, as it is surrounded by open desert.

 

Meanwhile, Turkey on Monday denied reports that it had agreed to allow the US to use its territory as a corridor to transfer weapons and assistance to Kurdish fighters trying to defend the border city of Kobane from ISIS. 

 

Speaking Sunday, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said that allowing the US to use its territory to defend the city, which is populated by Kurds, was “unrealistic. Turkey cannot actually give weapons and the civilians and ask to go back to fight with terrorist groups," Cavusoglu said in the interview, adding that “Killing the mosquitoes one by one is not the right strategy. We have to eradicate the root causes of this situation,” he added. “Obviously it is the Assad regime in Syria," he said.

 

Currently, Kobani is under siege from nearly all sides by ISIS fighters, who have begun trying to take over neighborhoods on the edge of town. All entrances to the city are controlled by ISIS, except for the northern entrance, which is a very short distance from the Turkish border. It was for this reason, Western officials said, that the idea to equip anti-ISIS groups seeking to defend Kobani via Turkey was proposed.

Fox News Host’s Comparison Between Christianity and Islam During Fiery Debate Over Extremism: ‘In Islam It Is…Behead and Kill Gays’

Fox News Host’s Comparison Between Christianity and Islam During Fiery Debate Over Extremism: ‘In Islam It Is…Behead and Kill Gays’ | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

Fox News hosts Andrea Tantaros and Alan Colmes clashed over the Islamic State and radical Islam during a fiery segment on "The O'Reilly Factor" Thursday night, with Colmes repeating his claim that the terror group doesn't present a direct threat to the United States. The exchange — which focused onthe debate over Michael Eric Dyson’s recent comments about Christianity and Islam — heated up when Tantaros asked Colmes to clarify whether he believes the Islamic State is a direct threat to America.

“No … it’s a regional threat,” the liberal commentator responded.

Tantaros, who appeared visibly surprised by his stance, then asked Colmes more broadly whether he believes “radical Islam is a threat to the United States,” to which he responded, “Absolutely not.”

“What are you worried that Shariah law is going to come to the United States any minute — they’re going to take over the country?,” Colmes sarcastically poked. “The caliphate is going to come here. Is that what you’re concerned about, Andrea?”

From there, Tantaros drew a comparison between Christianity and Islam, seizing upon Dyson’s claim that “a lot of terrorism [is] going on and being promoted” among certain radical Christian groups.

“Michael Eric Dyson was trying to say that Christians are homophobes. Well, you know what the difference is?” she said. “Love the sinner hate the sin. However, in Islam it is to behead and kill gays — very different than Christians.”

These comments angered Colmes, who said that Tantaros was being inaccurate and questioned if her assessment is what she truly believes Islam stands for.

“I’m just telling you what Shariah law stands for,” she responded.

Colmes went on to address Christian acts extremism in America as well, though he said that certain act of violence against abortion clinics, among other incidents, aren’t representative of Christianity as a whole.

“Muslims are not coming to get us as you’re suggesting and this kind of hysteria based on isolated incidents is bad for the country,” he added.

UK to introduce Ebola screening as death of Briton reported in Macedonia

UK to introduce Ebola screening as death of Briton reported in Macedonia | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it
Announcement comes after day of confusion over British government’s response to virus that has claimed 3,800 lives

Travellers arriving at Heathrow and Gatwick from west Africa are to be screened for symptoms of Ebola, Downing Street announced on Thursday night after a day of confusion over the government’s response to the virus that has claimed more than 3,800 lives.

People travelling from the worst-affected countries – Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea – will face a questionnaire about their recent travel history, who they have been in contact with and their onward travel arrangements.

Medical staff will be deployed to check some travellers’ body temperature to ascertain if they have fever, one of the early symptoms of the illness. Rail passengers arriving in Kent and London on the Eurostar from Paris and Brussels will also be screened.

Cases have already been reported in Spain and the US, where Thomas Eric Duncan died on Thursday after flying in from Liberia with the disease.

Washington has announced that travellers from the worst-hit countries will have their temperatures taken on arrival at five major airports in New York, Washington, Chicago and Atlanta.

The UK border measures will be introduced “in the coming days”, Downing Street said, and the announcement came despite the British defence secretary, Michael Fallon, saying earlier on Thursday that airport screening was not in line with World Health Organisation advice that screening for fevers or temperature is better conducted in the exit country.

The chief medical officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, cited “concern about the growing number of cases” of the illness and recommended border checks to ensure “potential cases arriving in the UK are identified as quickly as possible”.

Public Health England staff will work alongside border officers. No 10 was unable to say whether the system would catch travellers from west Africa who had transferred planes in other cities.

The apparent U-turn comes before a war game-style test of Britain’s ability to cope with an outbreak being planned by the Department of Health this weekend. Doctors, the ambulance service, local authorities and the police will take part in the real-time simulation of Ebola cases at two or more hospitals to be selected in the north and south of England.

No 10 said: “Advice from the chief medical officer today is that enhanced screening arrangements at the UK’s main ports of entry for people travelling from the affected regions – Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea – will offer an additional level of protection to the UK.

“These measures will help to improve our ability to detect and isolate Ebola cases. However, it is important to stress that given the nature of this disease, no system could offer 100% protection from non-symptomatic cases.”

The Foreign Office was last night investigating reports that a Briton had died of suspected Ebola in Macedonia. Tests were being carried out but the man’s colleague said he had not been in any country known to have Ebola outbreaks. A social services centre in Paris which was sealed off after four children recently arrived from Guinea showed symptoms of the illness, was later reopened after the French authorities said it was a false alarm.

Pressure for airport screening grew yesterday when Keith Vaz, chairman of the Commons home affairs select committee, which scrutinises border controls, called for tests “to ensure that this deadly disease cannot take more lives”. Andy Burnham, the shadow health secretary, also urged the government to consider passenger screening “without delay”.

Davies said: “Rapid access to healthcare services by someone infected with Ebola is not only important for their health but also key to reducing the risk of transmission to others. These measures could include a further UK-based package of measures to identify and assess the health status of passengers arriving from the affected countries and to ensure that those individuals know what to do should they be taken ill whilst in the UK.”

Experts say airport screening may have limited effect. David Heymann, professor of infectious diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, who is also chairman of Public Health England, said there was a danger of creating a false sense of security .

“It is not a failsafe method mainly because people cross [borders] while they are still in the incubation period and you don’t know they are infected,” he said.

“The most important response is better detection and rapid response. Borders cannot stop infectious diseases spreading. In Hong Kong and Singapore they set up thermal scanners during the Sars epidemic but I don’t think they identified more than one case that way.”

Professor David Mabey, another physician specialising in infectious diseases at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, warned passengers will lie about their travel history to avoid the inconvenience and so would be “a waste of time”.

“If last week your aunt died of Ebola but you feel fine, are you going to be honest when you get to the airport and risk being detained?” he said.

Professor George Griffin, chairman of the advisory committee on dangerous pathogens, said screening just for body temperature was ineffectual and would have missed the case of the US death.

Experts also moved to play down fears of a major UK outbreak. Peter Piot, a Belgian microbiologist who is part of the World Health Organisation’s Ebola science group, said: “I’m not concerned about an outbreak in western Europe, in the UK, like we are seeing in west Africa.”

Heymann said British preparedness to cope with Ebola cases was “superb”.

“The government and the NHS has access to all clinicians so messages can get out to all of them at once and that means it is much easier to achieve uniformity than in private systems,” he said.

He added that the public health authorities in the UK has successfully stopped two outbreaks of the deadly Middle East respiratory syndrome, a virus which, unlike Ebola, can be transmitted through the air.

Police to probe informant spy claims

Police to probe informant spy claims | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

A police force is to investigate complaints from campaigners who say they felt intimidated by officers who tried to recruit them as informants.

Four people say approaches from Cambridgeshire Police caused them to give up campaigning or left them stressed, The Guardian reported.

The case was referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) in August.

The IPCC said the inquiry could now be handled by officers in Cambridgeshire.

It is understood the campaigners were involved with environmental, anti-fascist and anti-cuts groups.

An IPCC spokeswoman said the complaint, made by four people, alleged that two officers had "attempted to recruit them to infiltrate various political organisations".

'Covert tactics'

She said it had been decided the case could be passed back to the Cambridgeshire force for "local investigation".

Cambridgeshire Police confirmed an internal investigation had been opened but would not comment further.

Last year, a video emerged purportedly showing an unnamed Cambridgeshire officer trying to persuade a student to pass on information on potential supporters.

Cambridgeshire Police admitted it tried to recruit campaigners but said officers acted "in accordance with the law".

Lawyers at civil liberties law firm Bindmans are representing the four campaigners.

Cranford ward councillor Gurpal Virdi to stand trial at Southwark Crown Court on July 27 next year

A councillor and former detective has denied indecently assaulting a boy in custody.

Gurpal Virdi appeared at Southwark Crown Court yesterday (Thursday, October 2) where he also denied misconduct in public office.

The 55-year-old, of Firs Drive, Cranford, was bailed to return for trial on July 27 next year.

The charges relate to an alleged incident in the back of a police van in 1986, when Mr Virdi was a police constable.

The Cranford ward councillor retired from the Metropolitan Police in 2012 and was elected to Hounslow Council in May. He has been suspended by Labour pending the outcome of the court case.

His lawyers had applied unsuccessfully to have the charges against him dismissed.

Nigeria and Senegal 'contain' Ebola

Nigeria and Senegal 'contain' Ebola | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

The Ebola virus may have been contained in Nigeria and Senegal, US health authorities say, after no new cases were reported there for almost a month.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say the outbreakcould be declared over in Nigeria next month.

It continues, however, in other parts of West Africa, in particular Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says more than 3,000 people have died of the virus so far, mostly in Liberia.

The current outbreak is the most deadly Ebola outbreak in history.

The outbreaks in Nigeria and Senegal have been far smaller than in other West African countries, with 20 confirmed cases in total between the two countries.

Ebola control "possible"

In Nigeria, Africa's most populous country, there have been 19 confirmed cases of the virus and eight deaths since the first confirmed case there in July. The last reported case in Nigeria was discovered on 5 September, the CDC said.

There was also one confirmed case in Senegal in late August, where the infected person survived.

Poisoning accused 'beaten by mother'

Poisoning accused 'beaten by mother' | UNITED CRUSADERS AGAINST ISLAMIFICATION OF THE WEST | Scoop.it

A woman accused of poisoning her mother in a Breaking Bad-inspired plot has told a court she was beaten by her.

Kuntal Patel, 37, denies trying to murder her magistrate mother Meena by putting abrin in her Diet Coke drink.

Giving evidence at Southwark Crown Court, Ms Patel said her "controlling" mother "forbade" her from marrying her boyfriend.

She said she "couldn't understand how or why my mother was behaving like this".

'Watched 24/7'

Ms Patel said her boyfriend Niaj Kakad had called her mother controlling, and when she told her this she erupted in fury and beat her.

"I think for her that was a sign of him being disrespectful to her," she said.

Ms Patel lived with her mother and younger sister Poonam in Plaistow, east London, where her mother kept tabs on her "24/7", jurors heard.

She said her mother "started slapping" her "on and off".

When she struck up a relationship with Mr Kakad, her mother quickly turned sour and tried to break them up, she claimed.

The court previously heard the graphic designer attempted to kill her mother by putting poison in a drink in a plot inspired by US TV series Breaking Bad.

Ms Patel was arrested in January when her emails to Jesse Korff asking for more abrin and ricin on the "dark web" were intercepted by the FBI, jurors were told.

The court heard Mr Korff, who made his poisons in a lab at his home, reassured Ms Patel he had sent her real poison and said it had "worked" for his other customers.

She denies trying to murder her mother, who sits on the bench at Thames Magistrates' Court, and one count of acquiring a biological agent or toxin, but has pleaded guilty to two further counts of attempting to acquire a biological agent or toxin.
