A second blogger who is believed to have made comments about Islamists has been hacked to death in Bangladesh.
Washiqur Rahman, 26, was attacked with meat cleavers just metres from his home in the capital Dhaka, according to police official Biplob Kumar Sarker.
“Two students from an Islamic school have been arrested while a third is on the run,” Mr Sarker said.
Rahman was declared dead at a hospital shortly after being attacked in the city’s Tejgaon area, the officer said.
It was not immediately known what Rahman’s blogging focussed on, but the suspects, both aged 20, told police they were targeting him due to his anti-Islamic writings, Mr Sarker said.
One of the suspects also told reporters they attacked Rahman because he had disrespected the Prophet Mohammed.
The situation Muslim women finds themselves in, more than not.

KABUL (AP) — Lost and alone in a strange city Mariam called the only person she knew, her husband’s cousin. She worried he wouldn’t help her because she had left her home in Afghanistan’s northern Kunduz province, fleeting to the capital Kabul to escape his relentless and increasingly vicious beatings. But he promised to help. Too busy to come himself he sent a friend who took her to “some house”, held a gun to her head and raped her.
Finished with her he settled in front of a TV set, the gun on a table by his side. Choosing her moment, Mariam picked up the gun shot her assailant in the head and turned the gun on herself.
“Three days later I woke up in the hospital,” she said, slowly, shyly removing a scarf from her head to reveal a partially shaved head and a long jagged scar that ran almost the length of her head where the bullet grazed her scalp.
From the hospital Mariam was sent to a police station and from there to Badam Bagh, Afghanistan’s central women’s prison where she told her story to The Associated Press. For the past three months Mariam has been waiting to find out why she is in jail, the charges and when she can leave.
“I haven’t gone to court. I am just waiting.”
I can imagine how best to capitalize on the situation.
MEMRI: Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian anti-porn activist Muhammad Raed, which aired on Iqra TV on February 1, 2013.
Muhammad Raed: You talked about freedom. Is this the freedom you would like to lead us to? [In the West], most of the sons and daughters don’t know who their fathers and mothers are.
We want these [Islamic] countries to live a normal life. I know that you are my father and that you are my mother.
Interviewer: I understand we have a report that you did on the screen. Can you explain to us what these statistics mean?
Muhammad Raed: Yes. It’s about the Muslim countries. [The study covered] seven or five years, [and found that] the eight weeks in which people watched the most porn sites were six weeks after we finished Ramadhan, and during the summer holidays.
There were punishments from Allah in our countries during these days. The guy who did this [study] found whole reasons – like what happened to Gaza, in Palestine, on this day, and what happened…
Interviewer: You found a correlation between people watching a lot of pornography, and disasters happening…
Muhammad Raed: Yes. I wondered… It was a video in Arabic: “Gaza and Sin.” I wondered: Oh my God, it’s really like what Allah told us in the Koran – “Corruption has appeared on land and in sea, because of what the hands of men have wrought,” because of what you are doing. He said: “because of what the hands of men have wrought” – to give them a taste of sin, so they will go back to Allah.
Interviewer: I would just like to clarify that presumably, most of this pornography was watched in the other Arab countries, not in Gaza itself. I would just like to make this distinction to show that the Muslim nation is being collectively punished for this sin, but it is not the people in Gaza, who are lucky to get water and food, of course. But it is because of all the actions of the Muslim nation that we can have this kind of extreme disasters. That’s what you are saying.
Muhammad Raed: Yes, it’s a punishment for us. It’s not a punishment for you to see the kids killed and the women raped? It’s a very bad punishment. And it’s not only in Gaza – a lot of accidents happened in Egypt on the same days.
H/T: Always Watching
And I remember Rotten Totten in 2007 exhorting the American values of the Kurds:
Over the past few years, I have traveled and worked in Kurdistan frequently, often staying there for long periods of time, and have always moved about freely, without need of a gun, body armor, or bodyguards. Americans can go there on holiday, if they so desire, and feel just as relaxed as they would in Canada. Even more so, perhaps: The Kurds are friendlier, and more pro-American, than Canadians.
Just feel those US values oozing out of their every pore.
Because allowing only males to sell women’s accessories in a highly misogynist backwater state, has been a great idea. KGS
Employing women in shops selling female accessories is a crime and disrespectful, Al-Hayat reported, citing Saudi Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdulaziz al-Sheikh.
Al-Sheikh’s remarks came at a sermon yesterday at a mosque in Riyadh, the newspaper reported.
Saudi Arabia’s Labor Ministry issued a directive in July demanding that lingerie and cosmetics stores replace salesmen with women. More here.
Meanwhile…. in Gaza City
GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The Hamas-run government has launched a series of campaigns targeting fortune-tellers, mannequins and cigarette vendors in the Gaza Strip.
Police sources told Ma’an that 142 fortune tellers were forced to sign an agreement at the Ministry of Interior pledging that they would not practice their craft.
As well as predicting the future, fortune tellers sell amulets for protection and are sometimes called on to solve personal or family problems. More here.
NOTE: There’s no doubt that Hamas if it could, would be head chopping fortune tellers like they do in Saudi Arabia.
Oh, and do please take note that it’s much much worse to insult Muhammad than to insult Allah. Face facts, mohamed is worshiped by the fundamustard, which is just another example of the extreme differences between the rip off that Islam is, and Judaism. KGS
Jihad Watch: The above clip was taken from an interview given by Shaykh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni on the Egyptian satellite television station al-Hikma on 7 July 2011. Al-Huwayni here explains that whoever insults Muhammad, even if he later repents, must be killed. Later in the interview, al-Huwayni went on to contrast this with the case of one who insults Allah. He said that insulting Allah of course makes one an infidel, which is agreed to by all Islamic scholars, yet the one who insults Allah is not killed–he is merely called to repentance. This is because even if the whole world insults Allah, it does not matter to him–it does not hurt him.
Remember folks, they keep telling you that there’s no compulsion in religion, but when Islam is deemed to be the only logical outlet for religious belief, forcing a person to convert, or punishing for converting from is simply not a problem for the Muslim mind. KGS
In Iran, a Christian pastor faces death sentence
(CNN) — A Christan pastor in Iran has been sentenced to death for allegedly renouncing his Muslim religion and another faces a possible indictment on the same charge of apostasy, according to a prominent activist group working for human rights in Iran.
Youcef Nadarkhani, a 32-year-old member of the Church of Iran ministry and pastor of an approximately 400-person congregation in the northern city of Rasht, faces death, according to the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran.
In the southern city of Shiraz, another Christian pastor, Behrouz Sadegh-Khanjani, 35, is facing a possible indictment for apostasy.
“This is part of a greater trend of persecution against Christians,” said Firouz Sadegh-Khanjani, brother of Behrouz and member of the Church of Iran’s Executive Council.
