In a string of royal decrees and an overarching new piece of legislation to deal with terrorism generally, the Saudi King Abdullah has clamped down on all forms of political dissent and protests that could “harm public order.”
Independent The new laws have largely been brought in to combat the growing number of Saudis travelling to take part in the civil war in Syria, who have previously returned with newfound training and ideas about overthrowing the monarchy. To that end, King Abdullah issued Royal Decree 44, which criminalises “participating in hostilities outside the kingdom” with prison sentences of between three and 20 years, Human Rights Watch said.
On the positive side, last month further regulations were issued by the Saudi interior ministry, identifying a broad list of groups which the government considers to be terrorist organizations – including the Muslim Brotherhood.
Not likely. The video shows a grocery story owner in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, who was upset with his employee, a poor foreign worker from India. So he decided to make an example of him, dragged him to the middle of the road, in front of passersby, stabbed him to death, then left him there to die.
Shoebat (h/t Winterspirit) But this wasn’t enough. As the cell phone began to record, from a passerby, the boss decided to come back and hack his non-Muslim victim.
Al-Arabbiya Network, says that such things happen daily, but this time, it was out in the open.
This is how Saudi Muslims see non-Muslims. Shoebat.com reported last year on how there is in Saudi Arabia a huge demand from Muslim for the blood of Christians. Muslim terrorists in Syria have made large profits by killing Christians, draining their blood into bottles, and selling them to Saudis for $100,000 a bottle.
Mehdi Nemmouche, a 29-year-old French citizen, arrested in Marseilles carrying a Kalashnikov rifle.
Haaretz (h/t Maria J) French police have arrested a suspect allegedly tied to the shooting last week at the Brussels Jewish Museum, AFP reported on Sunday.
French citizen Mehdi Nemmouche, 29, was arrested Friday at the Saint-Charles bus station in Marseilles, while he was on a bus from Amsterdam via Brussels. He had in his possession a Kalashnikov rifle, the same type used by the Brussels shooter, and a GoPro portable camera, also thought to have been used by the gunman. He also had a loaded revolver in his luggage.
The MUSLIM killer
The suspect was known to French security services, and is suspected to have fought alongside Jihadi elements in Syria in 2013, Le Monde reported.
In the May 24 attack, four people were shot and killed by an unknown assailant. The victims included a French national and Belgian museum worker, and Israeli couple Miriam and Emanuel Riva.
The shooting is being treated in Brussels as a probable terrorist attack. “The analysis of the camera images shows that we are dealing with an individual acting in cold blood and who is very determined in his actions,” Ine Van Wymersch, a spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecution office, told journalists in the Belgian capital.
BELGIUM 4 dead in Jewish Museum shooting
Referring to a Malay Mail report yesterday which quoted Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar as saying there should not be a problem with allowing guide dogs to assist the blind in using public transportation, Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said SPAD’s regulations should not conflict with Islamic laws and city regulations set by authorities.
Malay Mail (h/t James R) “The local authorities have set very specific rules governing the breeding of dogs, and these rules include premises that do not allow dogs to be left without a capable owner,” he said. Abdul Aziz said the guide dogs could be an inconvenience for the blind. “What if the dog pees in a bus or in the train? Who will clean up the mess? I fear the other commuters might get angry with the disabled owner,” he said.
Asked about the successful implementation of guide dogs in neighbouring countries such as South Korea and Japan, Abdul Aziz said the countries were not a good comparison because of their (non-Muslim) ethnic makeup.
Stevens Chan, who had brought Malaysia’s first guide dog from Nanjing, China, said the dog was trained to only discharge faeces twice a day at the owner’s instruction. He said that upon instruction, the dog would look for a grassy area to discharge its faeces. “If we are in an unfamiliar place, I would ask someone to direct me to a grassy area for my guide dog to discharge his business,” he said.
Department of Islamic Development (Jakim) director-general Datuk Othman Mustapha pointed out that touching dogs was considered haram under Islamic law, and hence it was inappropriate to use guide dogs, especially in public areas, because of the Muslim majority. “Muslims may accidentally brush against dogs, and dogs and their fur are unclean under Islamic tenets,” he said.
Othman said Muslims were particular about their personal hygiene as it was a fundamental concern in the Islamic religion. “Islamic beliefs and practices cannot be taken lightly according to personal feelings and reasons,” he said. “They must be in accordance with teachings of the Quran, Sunnah, Ijma, and Qiyas that are valid.”
The attack took place in an area of Denmark called Vollsmose, which is heavily populated with Muslims and immigrants from the Middle East.
Sara Lund-Jensen and her dog, Kaiser
Sara Lund-Jensen was out walking her five year old dog, Kaiser, by a lake near Granparken when four young Muslim thugs approached them, at first asking questions about the dog. Then, suddenly they began kicking the dog and throwing rocks at him, one of which hit Kaiser. As she tried to protect her dog, the Muslims started throwing rocks at her, too. then knocked her to the ground and kicked her, as well, after which they picked up Sara and her dog and threw them both into the lake, where they pelted them with more rocks. Fortunately, the thugs finally gave up their game and left.
Sara and Kaiser were helped out of the water by an elderly woman. Soaked and shaken, both will be OK.
