Sunni leader says gender equality un-Islamic; women only fit to deliver children

Quote:
In a controversial remark, Sunni leader Kanthapuram A P Aboobacker Musliar on Saturday described the concept of gender equality as "un-Islamic" and said that women could never equal men as "they are fit only to deliver children".

Musliar, the chief of All India Sunni Jamiyyathul Ulama, said women have no mental strength and the power to control the universe, "which lies in the hands of men."
"Gender equality is something which is never going to be a reality. It is against Islam, humanity and was intellectually wrong," he said while speaking at a camp of Muslim Students Federation (MSF) in Kozhikode.

"Women can never equal men. They are fit only to deliver children. Women cannot withstand crisis situations," he said.

Yes. It is exactly this kind of medieval thinking Canada needs more of...

I don't know about "medieval". I daresay those attitudes were common even in North America prior to the arrival of women's liberation in the late 60s.

But I'm sure you didn't mean to endorse anything to do with the feminist movement, now did you?

Nice deflection from the topic at hand!!! Instead of addressing the sexist Muslim in the story, you make it all about me. Well played!!! Beautiful, even. Hear that? Your Progressive Fans are applauding. Straight out of the Leftist Playbook!

Hey, CM, do me a favour, wouldja?

Take your smug dime store analyses & go play somewhere else. It's less embarrassing for you & you'll probably find a lot more captive audience there.

The accurate parts of what you think you've gleaned from the veneer visible on these boards could be written on a gnat's ass. You've never come close to knowing the whole me & you never will...

I fail to see the problem...

Syrian refugees reluctant to resettle in Canada immediately, Ottawa says

Quote:
Canada is finding that many Syrian refugees are reluctant to travel so far afield, a stumbling block as the country works to identify thousands of newcomers to bring here within a matter of months.

Initial efforts in November by the United Nations to find Syrians in refugee camps keen on rapidly relocating thousands of kilometres to Canada as government-sponsored refugees bore relatively little fruit, new figures released by Ottawa show.

Only about 6.3 per cent of refugees contacted indicated they were interested in coming to Canada when the UN got in touch with them between Nov. 18 and 26. This was chiefly in Jordan but also in Lebanon.

The Canadian government, which released these numbers Wednesday, insists refugee interest has grown since late November – but could provide no numbers to back that up. They acknowledged many refugees in camps are still hoping they might return to Syria or want to remain in the region.

Well, well, well...

The original story: Photo of Syrian refugee selling pens to feed his young daughter sparks $100K fundraiser


The update: #BuyPens: Syrian refugee photographed selling pens to feed children uses crowdfunding to start businesses
A Syrian refugee who was photographed walking the streets of Beirut selling biros to feed his children has used money donated from around the world to employ his fellow asylum seekers.

Abdul Halim al-Attar has been able to set up three businesses in the Lebanese capital using the $191,000 (£127,000) raised by an online crowdfunding campaign.

The 33-year-old father said he was astounded by the outpouring of support after a photo of him selling pens as he carried his sleeping daughter went viral.


...the campaign had collected almost forty times its original target, raising $188,685 (£125,000), and another £1,540 has poured in since then.

Mr al-Attar immediately vowed to use the money to help his fellow refugees and has since opened a bakery, kebab shop and restaurant that employ 16 Syrian asylum seekers.


“Not only did my life change, but also the lives of my children and the lives of people in Syria whom I helped,” he said.

“I had to invest the money, otherwise it will be lost…when God wants to grant you something, you'll get it.”

But receiving the funds has been a struggle, with him only collecting 40 per cent of donations so far as PayPay does not operate in Lebanon and the money is being transferred piece by piece by a campaigner in Dubai.

Indiegogo and Paypal also took out about $20,000 (£13,000) in processing and banking fees.

Extremists have targeted refugee program to enter US, McCaul says

Quote:
Intelligence officials have determined that Islamic extremists have explored using the refugee program to enter the United States, they told the head of the Homeland Security Committee.

...

The NCTC has identified “individuals with ties to terrorist groups in Syria attempting to gain entry to the U.S. through the U.S. refugee program,” the intelligence agency told McCaul in a letter.

“The refugee system, like all immigration programs, is vulnerable to exploitation from extremist groups seeking to send operatives to the West,” the agency added, noting that a small number of Iraqi refugees were arrested on terror charges in 2010.

Dunno why they bother when it is so easy to smuggle them into Canada using JT's lame admission standards and then they can slide into the States from here. Not that JT is rushing into it or anything.
