Let Me Tell You Something, President Bush

Note from the Baron: The following post is the first of a series of old posts by Dymphna, which I’m calling “Dymphna’s Greatest Hits”. I’ll post one every Monday unless something intervenes. They’ll be published under Dymphna’s byline and using her GoV UserID, which will otherwise no longer be seen.

The following post is from December 2005, and is from her series called “I Could Scream”. That was the title of her blog on Wretchard’s site from a few months before this one was posted at GoV. Unfortunately, Wretchard eventually had to close his umbrella site, and as far as I know all her posts from there were lost.

In those days she carried about 80% of the load here at Gates of Vienna, sometimes posting three or four times a day. In recent years she had been despondent about her declining abilities — it was hard for her to focus well enough to write like she used to. In 2004 and 2005 she was a powerhouse.

Let Me Tell You Something, President Bush

Originally published on December 27, 2005

I wasn’t going to post on Nour Miyati’s suffering again. I swore I wouldn’t. Maybe I thought if I didn’t put up anything, then it would all just go away. However, being an ostrich has real limits. And if we aren’t at least willing to bear witness to another’s agony, then do we have the right to speak at all?

What the Saudis have done, what they have permitted to be done, to Ms. Miyati is so inhumane that it almost beggars description.

Let’s begin with some background from previous posts.

First of all, this woman didn’t go to the authorities — her owner dropped her bruised and battered body at the hospital, denying any responsibility for her condition:

A 25-year-old maid who came to Saudi Arabia as a guest worker will leave behind most of her fingers and toes and part of her right foot when she is repatriated to Indonesia. In addition to the amputations, necessitated by gangrene, several teeth had been knocked out and she is in danger of losing an eye as a result of severe beatings.

That was back in April of this year. I warned then that she would be under the aegis of sharia law, and thus her life — being a mere female, Muslim or not — wasn’t worth much. I also noted that the jerks who did this to her would be let go. Prince (at the time) Abdullah, busy doing a quick cover-your-a** move, stuck his big nose into it, insisting that she get good care and transferring her to the lad-de-dah King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center. Abdullah even sent the Health Minister over to check on her. They both declared her experience at the hands of her employers “disgusting”.

That was then. In May, things started to go sideways. All of a sudden, it wasn’t the employers’ fault. Or if it was, they were only guilty of neglect. But the maid, she was really the guilty party. That woman had the nerve to accuse her owners employers of mistreating her. Therefore she had violated the law by making false allegations. Here are my remarks in May, followed by the hideously criminal medical report from a bunch of Saudi butchers with M.D. after their names:

Brutalization is not just a family affair in Saudi Arabia. The state is a willing and eager partner. And it can twist arms with a mighty force, especially arms with hands whose fingers are missing. On the one hand, there is the medical committee’s report:

A medical committee set up by Riyadh Governor from a number of specialists from the Ministry of Health concluded that the maid suffered wounds and bruises to her body, “suggesting she has been the victim of violence and that the gangrene could not have been caused as a direct result of beating and that it probably was caused by an inherent disease suffered by the patient.”

Her “inherent disease” is simply the grinding poverty which drove her to seek employment far from home. She wound up in Hell. The “inherent disease” of the Saud tribe is corrupt, terminally evil governance. These spawn of Stalin are unspeakable.

Now, to bring you up to date, in case you’ve managed to avoid this until now. It’s hardly “news” anymore, since it’s been floating around the blogosphere for awhile. The Religious Policeman (whose blog is dedicated “In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter”) had a few sardonic things to say about how judges arrive at their numerology when it comes to handing down lashings for false allegations:

They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha Ha!

The urge to create the above image was prompted by the latest of uncountably many incidents in which a Muslim perpetrator of an atrocity was identified as having mental problems. In this particular case, it was a Tunisian man in Sweden who was described as having “psychological problems” after he stabbed an elderly Jewish woman and then fled the country.

The general rule seems to be this: If (1) there is a single perpetrator acting alone, and (2) his victims are unrelated to him and not among his acquaintances, then he has “psychological problems”. The incidence of the application of this rule by the media seems to be approaching 100%. When was the last time you read a news report about a “lone wolf” mujahid where he was not described as “having a history of psychological problems”, or words to that effect?

Contrast this practice with the immediate and routine description (often without evidence) of any white non-Muslim who commits an atrocity as a “racist”, a “Trump supporter”, a “white supremacist”, a “right-wing extremist”, etc. In other words, the motive for the deed is always described in ideological terms. But if the perpetrator is Muslim, the initially assigned motive is never ideological — as if adherence to Islam were not in fact evidence of adherence to an extreme political ideology.

Mind you, that doesn’t make the description wrong. Devout adherence to Islam is quite clearly a form of mental illness. Either people with mental problems are drawn to Islam, or being exposed to Islamic doctrine induces mental illness. Or both.

Police Terrorise Tommy Robinson Again

Paul Weston’s fisking of the Greater Manchester Thugs Police is dictionary-perfect.

What precisely is the point of the useless royal eunuchs who pretend to preside over a country and yet permit lawlessness not only to exist but to prevail? This on-going mess has turned me into an anti-monarchist. There’s not enough pomp and circumstance to cover this Greek tragedy in what has become a third-world, unsafe, and bitter green isle.

Paul is more eloquent than I in describing the high crimes and misdemeanors of the police enforcers:

May God have mercy on them all.

A Day in the Life of Sderot, Parts 4-6

Below are the next three videos from MC’s series on life in the southern Israeli city of Sderot (parts 1-3 are here). In these installments you’ll see the site where a rocket landed in the middle of a street, a high school that had to be shut down after being hit by a Palestinian rocket, and a memorial for people killed in Hamas’ attacks before Iron Dome was brought in to protect the city.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading these videos.

Rockets Over Sderot (Yet Again)

More than two hundred rockets have been fired from Gaza into southern Israel today. According to The Times of Israel, several towns near the Gaza border have been hit, including Ashkelon, Netivot, and Sderot. Dozens of the missiles were reportedly intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system.

Here’s the latest from our Israeli correspondent MC, reporting from Sderot (with video):

I managed to get the videos this morning. These are UN-approved attacks on civilians by the Hamas terrorist administration. You are watching war crimes which will go unrecognised because the victims are Israeli Jews who are just too ‘evil’ to be considered members of the human race.

So we get bombed and nobody gives an (ape or a) monkey.

Hamas is a fundamentalist Islamic group which, because it mainly targets Israeli Jews, is approved by many European and world politicians; they are the ‘friends’ of the British Labour Party.

The videos were taken this morning from my front porch. I apologise for the quality, but I was trying to limit my exposure to shrapnel and any other junk.

The delay between the flash and the bang gives me several miles’ distance, but the closer ones are too fast to track.

I was however determined to get some footage despite the risks, these are more than just overgrown fireworks as some apologists for Islam are wont to declare.

A house in Ashkelon was hit today and there was shrapnel damage. a look at The Jerusalem Post website will show you the stills.

The Israeli retaliations are going on as I write, but they will be limited because, whilst the world condoned the bombing of jooz, it despises any proper Israeli response, calling for ‘moderation’ which is diplo-speak for ‘don’t retaliate or we will condemn it as “disproportionate”.’

So we supply Gaza with fuel, food, and electricity, and they return death and destruction. This just epitomises the self-righteous arrogance of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ and its supporters in London, Brussels, Rome, Stockholm, and Washington DC.

Late update: Israeli TV is reporting that the reason for the rocket attacks is the upcoming Eurovision song contest, which will be held in Tel Aviv.

The Non-News From the Netherlands

The two videos below are brief Dutch news reports about the Easter Day bombings in Sri Lanka. Many thanks to C for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

This first video is from early on, when the news was still breaking. According to the correspondent in Sri Lanka, the attacks were the Christians’ fault, who somehow provoked the Buddhists to commit the atrocities:

Later on, when it became obvious that the bombings were carried out by Islamic terrorists, the reporters managed to discuss the news without saying anything at all:

The Sri Lanka Bombers Pledge Fealty to the Caliph of the Islamic State

The mainstream media in the West have been reluctant to mention Islam when discussing the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka, which killed at least 359 people at churches and hotels. In fact, they have been loath to refer to religion at all, preferring to identify the victims as “Easter worshippers” rather than “Christians”.

Despite the fact that the incident had nothing to do with Islam or any other religion, a video has surfaced of the conspirators — at least some of whom were suicide bombers — pledging fealty to Caliph Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State.

At the end of the video the terrorists recite “Allahu Akhbar” in unison, which intelligence analysts believe to be an Arabic phrase that means: “We fear unemployment, are concerned about climate change, experience social marginalization, and feel discriminated against.”

Indian TV News Report on the Islamic Terror Attacks in Sri Lanka

English is the common tongue in polyglot India, which means that Indian newspaper and TV reports are often accessible to the rest of the Anglosphere. That’s particularly useful during a major news event in the region, such as yesterday’s terrorist bombings in Sri Lanka.

In this case it’s even more useful, since unlike major media outlets in Europe and North America, this Indian TV station is not at all politically correct. The clip below was part of the early live coverage of the bombings, before the full scope of the attacks was known, and the reported number of casualties was not yet over a hundred. Yet the reporters give the names of two of the suspected suicide bombers (Mohammed Coefficient: 50%) and discuss a possible affiliation with the Islamic State.

And this station is a CNN affiliate — didn’t they get the memo??

Islam’s Sex Slaves in Britain

This article by Michael Copeland was first published at LibertyGB in July 2013. Since then there has been news coverage of dozens of Yazidi sex slaves in Iraq, of 276 Christian Nigerian girls abducted by night from boarding school to be sex slaves for Boko Haram, and a stream of further scandals in the UK of entrapment of underage English girls for marketing in muslim sex-slave networks.

Islam’s Sex Slaves in Britain

by Michael Copeland

The media term ‘Asian grooming’ is libellous, misleading, and inaccurate. It gratuitously slanders the Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Indian Hindu, Indian Sikh, Thai Buddhist, and many other Asian peoples. The term ‘grooming’ is misleading: to many it concerns men’s hairdressing. The principal complaint, though, is that it is inaccurate. The phenomenon is not Asian but Muslim. It is Islamic sex-slave-taking.

Islam has never abolished slavery: rules of Sharia law govern it. Islam authorises the taking of slaves: the Koran calls them “what your right hand possesses” (4:24). No Islamic state has signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which outlaws slavery. Instead, they have their own Cairo Declaration of Human Rights, which subordinates every provision to Sharia Law. Slavery, even though nominally made illegal by man-made statute, is in use today in several Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia, Mali, Sudan and even Egypt, because Sharia overrides “man-made” law. A Christian charity works in Africa buying slaves’ freedom. This liberates some, but it does not, in fact, discourage the kidnapping, as it provides a ready sale.

Sex slaves are a significant feature of slavery. “When I want a sex slave”, says Egyptian Salafi sheikh Huwayni, “I go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.” (Translating Jihad, 11 June 2011) Film footage from the 1960s of Arab Muslims purchasing African slaves can be seen on the Internet. The Koran authorises sex slaves: “lawful unto you are … what your right hand possesses.” (4:24) The text does say “what”, not “whom”: slaves and women are chattels, like domestic animals. Sharia law is seventh-century. Unchanged, it is held to be unchangeable. There has never been a reformation.

In Islamic teaching all non-Muslim countries are Dar al Harb, the ‘Realm of War’: “Britain has always been Dar al Harb,” Anjem Choudary assured the BBC. “Allah is an enemy to unbelievers,” says Koran 2:98, which means that Muslims must be, too. In any such realm of war the soldiers of Allah, the jihadis, are entitled to take slaves from the non-Muslim enemy, the kuffar: Sheikh Saad al-Buraik exhorted his listeners:

Their women are yours to take, legitimately. God made them yours. Why don’t you enslave their women?

Sheikh Huwayni confirms the law (Translating Jihad, 11 June 2011):

Carnage in Sri Lanka and Panic in Munich

Just before I went to church this morning I saw the news reports about the Islamic terror attacks in Sri Lanka. I didn’t have time to put together a post, but I recommend the reports at Vlad Tepes, which include dozens of videos (although at least two of them have been taken down by YouTube since Vlad posted them).

There were eight separate bombing attacks, four of them against churches celebrating Easter Mass. 207 people were reportedly killed, and at least 450 others wounded. The perpetrators are allegedly members of a new Islamic terrorist organization. Seven people have been arrested so far, but some of the explosions were caused by suicide bombers who will never be brought to justice on this side of the veil.

Alternatively, you can read about what happened in The Guardian or The Washington Post.

Vlad also has a report on an unrelated attack on a Croatian church in Munich. A bearded culture-enricher entered the Easter service, shouted “Allahu Akhbar”, and detonated several powerful fireworks. The congregation fled in panic, and 24 people were injured in the melee.

I Take This Woman…

Tabitha Korol’s latest guest-essay takes a look at the plight of women under Islam.

I take this woman…

by Tabitha Korol

The internet provides everything you’d want to know about courtships, weddings, married life, but few of them include the instructions on wife-beating. There is a brief but enlightening film, produced by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and posted on Jihad Watch, of a Muslim sociologist who demonstrates the “proper” wife-beating technique. Of course, the sociologist assures his audience that Islam is merciful, and that the man, the head of the household, should not have to beat his wife every day, and to do so lightly, never to hit her face or head, bruise, break bones or cause blood to flow (m10:12, Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law — ROTT). But the cautionary statement rings hollow when the wife’s bruises will never be seen because she must be covered from head to toe. And, should she become inured to the discipline’s sameness, there are other means of control and punishment available to him, all sanctioned by The Religion of Peace.

When is it necessary to beat one’s wife? The sociologist did posit that there are women who prefer domineering, authoritative, and even violent husbands. For the most part, however, beatings are needed when the wife has disobeyed him and the strict Islamic rules of marriage. She may have refused to wear a hijab (m:2:7-8, ROTT) or the finery he chose for her; or fancied attending school with the hope of one day having a career and earning a wage. She may have wanted to leave the house unaccompanied or without her husband’s permission; she is literally under house arrest.

The Shari’a marriage contract contains her virginity status, the dowry amount, and grants sexual intercourse rights to the male, giving him total control over his wife or wives. Should she refuse his advances, be too ill or too young to have sex, or if she engages in sex with another man or was raped, he could stop her daily (financial) maintenance. The woman is considered a she-devil, equal to a domestic animal, harmful and with crooked character. Therefore, he may disallow her to sleep in his bed; or lock her in a room, naked, and without food. Should he choose to enact a simple divorce by repeating “I divorce you” three times — she may receive no more than three months’ maintenance and could lose her children older than age seven.

The Muslim husband has the right to accuse her of adultery, in which case he might gather his friends and neighbors together to bury her almost up to her shoulders and stone her to death. The film The Stoning of Soraya M portrays the true story of Soraya, in Iran, whose husband Ali convinced their two sons and the townsfolk that she was committing adultery so that he could marry a 14-year-old girl. The Internet has an actual film of a Syrian woman being stoned to death by ISIS. About four women per day are murdered in “stove bursts” in Pakistan, by husbands or in-laws who claim the wives’ scarves caught fire while they were cooking.

A Slave-Holding ISIS Bride

An ethnic German woman (who presumably converted to Islam) is being tried over the death of a Yazidi slave girl in Iraq. The defendant traveled to Iraq with her husband, who had gone to fight in the jihad for the Islamic State. The couple acquired a little girl as slave, and later were responsible for her death.

Interestingly, the ISIS bride’s lawyer is claiming that the defendant could not possibly have been responsible for the death, since women in the Islamic State had no right to make such decisions — only their husbands could do so. Would this be called a sharia defense?

Multiculturalism Claims Another Victim

Multiculturalism claims another victim

by H. Numan

Something big in the news in Thailand and Germany: a female German tourist was brutally raped and murdered on the lovely island of Koh Chang in Thailand. The victim was Mariam Beelte, 27. Her body was discovered under a pile of stone. Her rapist and murderer was a Thai man, Ronnakorn Romruen, 24. He has admitted his crime. He was strongly under the influence of methamphetamine, which has been confirmed by tests. In other words: he was high as a kite. He’s currently under arrest and may very well face the death penalty. The latter is not reported in Germany.

Yesterday I spoke with a German friend who asked me if Thailand has become more dangerous over the last five years. Because that is being reported by the Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda the German media.

No, it hasn’t. Not noticeably so. Much unlike Western Europe, which is fast going doing the drain. I haven’t been there for a long time — and very much hope to not be there for a long time to come. Far too dangerous, far too dirty and generally very unsafe. Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome or Madrid. It doesn’t matter. Those cities are highly unsafe now. However, multiculturalism is the cure for all problems, so that cannot be it. Therefore, Thailand must have become much more unsafe. And that is widely reported.

Before I moved to Thailand 25 years ago I read anything I could find about it. So I would understand the country I was moving to. Travel guides, books written by people living there, history books, anything. Most of them warned travelers to be very careful. Thailand, they said, was a very safe country provided you stay on the beaten track. Leave that well-trodden path, and you’re on your own. Women in particular were cautioned never to travel alone, and especially not in remote areas.

Nothing to do with Thai men in particular, mind you. All travel guides included this caution. A woman traveling alone at night on a deserted beach wasn’t asking for trouble, but screaming for it. Thailand, Spain, Portugal, Africa, even boring old Germany and Holland — anywhere. A woman alone shouldn’t travel off the beaten path. That’s simply asking for trouble.

And then came multiculturalism. Together with its evil sister extreme feminism. Women can do anything they want. Provided it pays well, and the top positions only. Otherwise we aren’t really interested. Only white men do nasty things. They are the source of all evil — down with the male patriarchy! All cultures are equal, people are generally good, friendly and nice. The world is your unicorn.

Those warnings disappeared from the guides. Because those ‘liberated’ women felt restrained by it. They couldn’t do what they wanted — which probably is getting shag… silly. Traditional values are so old fashioned. If a woman wants a tattoo, she expresses her individuality! Forgetting that when everyone gets tattooed is more a kind of a uniform and the very opposite of individuality.

Update on the War in Gaza

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends the latest news from Sderot:

Although you may be reading in the news about a ‘peace deal’, the reality on the ground is different.

The past three days have seen sporadic shelling and bombing (outgoing), with continued kite and balloon attacks.

Tonight we are hearing artillery and gunfire with aircraft etc.

The area has all the signs of a military campaign in the making. We passed a field full of tanks coming in from Ashkelon today. Given that it is Shabbat, this is serious. Normally things stop at sunset on Friday, but not tonight. Expect some move soon.

It appears that Hamas’ control may not have be as complete as they would have us believe, and that a faction in Gaza is trying to provoke instability.

For those who are interested, here’s the story from Arutz Sheva on the “peace deal”:
