Coming from the President of the Wacko Society, I guess I'll have to take your word for it...

Muslim Students Turn Common Room Into Mosque, Demand Women Veil And Segregate

Quote:
Muslim students at a German university have seized control of a “silent room” designed as a space for all pupils, transforming it into a makeshift mosque and erecting a wall to segregate genders. There are also feet washing facilities and signs instructing women to wear the veil and to not wear perfume.

Another reason.

British Muslim girls being forced into marriage via internet

Quote:
Minor Muslim girls in the UK as young as 11 are being forced to marry men living abroad via the internet notwithstanding a ban on forced marriage in the country.

Imams in the UK and abroad have been conducting ceremonies using Skype so girls can be married remotely before "being put on a plane and consummating the marriage at the earliest opportunity", according to Freedom, a charity.

The marriage is often conducted with the promise of a visa to the UK for their new husband, it said. "The reason is to curb the behaviour of their children when they become 'too western'," charity founder Aneeta Prem was quoted as saying by 'The Sunday Times'.

"Once married, there is enormous pressure to get a spouse visa. The hope is the girl will visit (country of husband's origin) and fall pregnant to make the union seem more legitimate before bringing the partner back," she said.

Queen Refuses To Meet With Obama When He Is In London

Quote:
The Queen refuses to come to London to meet President Barack Obama next month.

Instead, accompanied by his security circus, he’ll trundle to Windsor in his bomb-proof, seven-ton limo for lunch.

He’s due to stand alongside the PM and urge Britain to stay in the EU.

‘But he’d be well advised not to give a pro-EU sermon over lunch after the row about the Queen supporting Brexit,’ says my source.

I disliked it when some people called PM Harper "Harpo". I think that your calling Pres. Obama a "punk" is just as distasteful and is beneath you. We don't agree on most things political, but you have not taken the low road on most issues, which is why I feel I can be civil when discussing our differences of opinions.

Mocking PM Harper was disrespectful of the office, just as calling Pres. Obama a "punk" is very disrespectful of the office of the President of the United States.

Paix, mon ami.

Video shows Israeli soldier shooting attack suspect
An Israeli soldier has been detained after video emerged Thursday afternoon that shows the soldier shooting a Palestinian man, who was suspected in a knife attack moments earlier, in the head as he lies injured on the street in Hebron.

The video, provided by B'Tselem, an Israeli human rights organization, shows a small crowd of Israeli soldiers and medics standing around a Palestinian man lying on the ground.

The Palestinian, Abdel Fattah al-Sharif, 21, was one of two suspects accused of stabbing an Israeli soldier at the scene moments earlier, according to the Israel Defense Forces. The second Palestinian suspect, Ramzi Qasrawi Tamimi, 21, was shot and killed at the scene.

"An Israeli soldier can be seen shooting the injured al-Sharif," said B'Tselem in a statement released with the video.

"The incident happens in the plain view of many other soldiers and officers, who do not seem to take any notice. The soldiers and medical teams are seen in the video treating the lightly injured soldier while ignoring the two seriously injured youths."

Soldier who shot subdued terrorist: 'I did the right thing, at the right time' - Arab-Israeli Conflict - Jerusalem Post

Quote:
While speaking to family members in a private conversation hours after his initial arrest by Military Police, the soldier said: "I did the right thing at the right time in order to prevent anything else bad from happening."

The soldier added that he feared that the terrorist, who had already succeeded in stabbing another solider, was going to try to attack other soldiers. "He wore a thick coat and therefore I feared that he would stand and detonate an explosive belt."

"After I saw the terrorist moved," the soldier continued, "I shot him. I just feared that the terrorist would blow himself up."

Soldier's Shooting of Palestinian Sets Off Uproar in Israel

Quote:
The Israeli military quickly arrested the soldier and opened an investigation into what it said appeared to be a "grave breach" of its values. A military court has ordered the soldier to remain held until Tuesday while the investigation continues.

Military officials also have cast doubt on the soldier's claim that he believed the Palestinian was carrying explosives.

On Sunday night, B'Tselem released a second video it says shows the same soldier at the scene shaking hands with Baruch Marzel, a well-known ultranationalist, after the shooting.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, a military spokesman, said a preliminary investigation found the soldier arrived on the scene some six minutes after the initial incident, and that the second shooting occurred several minutes after that. "There was no apparent threat from the Palestinian that was incapacitated," Lerner said.
