Montenegro Police Crash With Extremists at Gay Pride

Police in Montenegro fired teargas to repel anti-gay extremists who threw stones and firebombs at officers protecting a gay pride march on Sunday.
As many as 60 people were injured in the clashes.
The violence occurred when the attackers tried to break through police lines to reach those taking part in the march in Podgorica. After the march, the gay rights demonstrators were evacuated to a safe location in police vehicles.
Police said about 20 of the injured during the clashes were officers, and the remaining 40 were from "hooligan groups".
About 60 of the estimated 1,500 extremists who took part in the riots were arrested, police said.
The organiser of the gay pride march, Danijel Kalezic, said the police protection allowed about 150 activists to walk peacefully through the city.
"As of today, gay people are no longer invisible in Montenegro," Kalezic said. "From today, these streets are ours as well."
Such marches are seen as a test of Montenegro's commitment to human rights as it seeks to join the EU. Opponents attacked a similar march in July in the coastal town of Budva.

On This Memorial Day We Remember Lee Rigby 25 a Father A Soldier

The worse thing for any soldier but particularly, the soldiers I know which are  the best of the crob, American,Canadian, Dutch,Spanish Australian, French. Im sure there are others.  But soldiers at one time or the other have stated that the worse thing for a soldier is to die at home or in a car accident, a truck ran over, a truck carrying  bombs. Lee Rigby was to die one of those deaths. Dying right on the street full of friendly civilians in front of a city bus. Sometimes we can’t choose the way we go, even though soldiers sometimes because of the work they do, sometimes do get a choice. I am sure this was not the choice of Lee Rigby. I am sorry that he died and died for so little since the point being made went down with the blood and brutality of the crime. If anything else it hurt the cause of the killers. They know how to kill and how use knives and IE’s, but don’t have a mind that if they believe in god you have leave something behind by your god to take care of and you try to take care of talking to another human being so as to no more people are killed. But is plain that the killer had no respect for human life and the message saying the West doesn’t is down in the drains of Paris.
PA 16605394 Lee Rigby RIP: a British Muslims message to Michael Adebolajo and all the Far Right and Far Left nutters
WHEN Lee Rigby was butchered to death by lunatics making a human sacrifice to the god voices in their heads, we knew that no nutjobs would break us. We are fair. We are strong. And then the police moved to arrest two men who had made “offensive” comments on twitter. It took the police fifteen minutes to arrest two armed jihadi-obsessed psychos who had hacked a man to death in the street. What odds they were swifter in nicking a 23-year-old and a 22-year-old for allegedly breaking the Public Order Act?
As ever, someone looking to be offended found something to dislike on twitter. They called Avon and Somerset Police. The thought police then nicked the two Bristol residents on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred.
Says Detective Inspector Ed Yaxley in full PR mode:
“On Wednesday evening, we were contacted by people concerned about comments made on social media accounts. We began inquiries into the comments and at around 3.20am two men, aged 23 and 22, were detained at two addresses in Bristol. The men were arrested under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. Our inquiries into these comments continue.”
What did the tweeters say that was so offensive that it necessitated their seizure?
“These comments were directed against a section of our community. Comments such as these are completely unacceptable and only cause more harm to our community in Bristol. People should stop and think about what they say on social media before making statements as the consequences could be serious.”
Yeah. They can get arrested. They can get a criminal record that should damage their lives. But until we know what they said and who was offended by it, we can’t judge.
The men have been released on police bail. But, again, what did they say?
Channel 4 implies that the comments might have directed at Muslims.
On Thursday, the Islamic Human Rights Commission wrote to Bernard Hogan-Howe, the commissioner of the Metropolitan police, asking for vigilance in prosecuting those who “incite murder or hatred” on Twitter.
Chair of IHRC, Massoud Shadjareh said, “Muslims are justifiably scared at the moment, as there is a backlash taking place, mosques have been attacked and threats towards Muslims are common on social media, we call on the police to protect communities from any sort of racist or Islamaphobic attack.”
Anyone inspired to acts of violence by a tweet is a mentally negligible pillock. They don’t need arresting. They need ignoring. Same for anyone who thinks two barbaric maniacs epitomise all Muslims, or that all Britons are to blame for a man’s brutal death. Best ignored. Or, failing that, mocked.
But her’s the thing: if the people making threats on Twitter are being arrested will the police nick them all? Are the Twitter Police even handed or pushing an agenda?
We are no fans of the English Defence League and their leader Tommy Robinson. But he’s been getting some interesting Tweets. Are you offended by them? Will you call the police after reading them? Or are the police only interested in assaulting free speech to showcase their own anti-racist credentials?  
It calls to mind the treatment dished out to Emma West, the Croydon tram lady whose racist rantupset the righteous of twitter to such a degree that many called for her to be raped and murdered, and her child to be made motherless.
Intolerance will not be tolerated!

At least 61 people were crushed to death in a stampede at a New Year's Eve fireworks display in Ivory Coast's main city of Abidjan, authorities said today.
The incident happened outside the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium at about 2am in the Plateau district of the city.
The dead included 26 children, 28 women and six men, according to Minister of Youth Alain Lobognon after visiting the hospital morgue.

The incident was the worst of its kind in Abidjan since 2010, when a stampede at a stadium during a football match killed 18 people.
Ivory Coast, once a stable economic hub for West Africa, is struggling to recover from a 2011 civil war in which more than 3,000 people were killed.

Breast Ironing and The Agony for Little Girls in Cameroon

Screen grab from a video showing a breast ironing re-enactment by the Cameroonian
 organisation OGCEYOD, based in Limbe, in western Cameroon.
During puberty, thousands of Cameroonian girls fall victim to a painful 
practice: the women in their families, sometimes even their own mothers, 
try to make their growing breasts disappear by crushing them. 
They believe this “protects” the girls from experiencing their sexuality too soon.
According to a 2005 investigation by two doctors, almost a quarter of
 Cameroonian women have been victims of this practice. This “ironing” 
or “massaging” of the breasts, as it is sometimes euphemistically called, 
has also been reported in Togo and Guinea. 
A re-enactment by the Cameroonian organisation OGCEYOD.
The woman who plays the mother
 realises how painful it is, and then becomes involves in the
 fight against this practice.


“A lot of women become worried when their daughter 

reaches puberty around the age of eight or nine.

 They consider this to be too early”

Georgette Arrey Taky is the Executive Secretary of Renata, a national network of young mothers that teaches sexual education to Cameroonian women.

It’s difficult to say when this began. All we know is that today’s elderly women also suffered this treatment during their adolescence. The last study on the subject concluded that breast ironing was practised throughout Cameroon, particularly in the centre and west of the country. This practice exists among the rich as well as the poor.
The reason why breast ironing is so rooted in our customs is because the mothers who endured it were told by their own mothers that it was to protect them. They therefore repeat the gesture to protect their own daughters. It’s a vicious circle that survives through ignorance more than tradition.
A lot of women become worried when their daughter reaches puberty around the age of eight or nine. They consider this to be too early, and therefore believe that their daughter will attract boys and risk becoming pregnant too early. The young girls are massaged until they are 15 or 16 years old. By making their breasts disappear, the mothers believe they can control the girls’ effect on men, and thus, their sexuality. This is obviously an illusion. We regularly meet very young mothers in our organisation who had their breasts ironed. That’s why we are working to convince parents that effective sex education can only be achieved through dialogue.
The breasts of a victim.

“Women, usually mothers or aunts, use spatulas, stones and even pestles”
The pain of the “ironing” is unimaginable. Women, usually mothers or aunts, use spatulas, stones or even pestles. These objects are heated up and struck against the developing breast. The strike leads to burns as well as infections and cysts. The long-term consequences are no less detrimental. According to a few specialists, the victims are more susceptible to breast cancer. Furthermore, in intimate situations, the damaged breasts become the source of body image issues. I met a girl who doesn’t even dare to take her clothes off in front of her friends.
Our work is to make mothers understand that breast ironing causes a lot more pain to a young girl than puberty does. We do a lot of field work, going to churches and traditional meetings among mothers. We make sure they thoroughly understand the pain they have caused. But changing attitudes takes time, given that there is no law forbidding this practice.

As I followed Qaddafi, Im Intrigue by His Final Hours

It took 3.58 minutes to kill this man who’d killed so many. As human beings we can not convert ourselves in the people we judge and punish.  There is never been  such a rule in the middle 

this part of the world. Both the middle east and the far east. We learned about those crimes in sunday school as men of god applied justice to criminals or just non followers. They are still stuck in the world of violence. They know how to take it and are experts in giving it. As I post about this man’s final 3 minutes my mind goes to the Embassy in Libya and how they killed our ambassador and his marine’s security entourage.   adamfoxie*

The outlines of how Muammar Gaddafi died are already well known: gruesome footage of him being abused and manhandled by rebel militiamen after his capture on 20 October 2011 went around the world. But the exact circumstances of how he came to be found, bloodied and bowed, in a concrete pipe in Sirte, his home town, were less certain. Now a report by Human Rights Watch (HRW), released yesterday, drawing on interviews with close associates of the dictator who survived the final battle and rebels present at his capture, provides appalling new detail about his last hours.
Only a few years before this man had been courted by Tony Blair and other world leaders. Now he was holed up in the desert with few loyalists, rapidly running out of food, patience and hope. Soon he was to die a hideous, humiliating death.
The report claims that at least 66 members of Gaddafi's convoy were summarily executed by the militias after their capture – a war crime, one which the Libyan civilian and military authorities have an obligation to investigate. To date they have shown no inclination to do so. And while the Libyan authorities claim that Gaddafi himself was killed in crossfire during the final battle, the evidence amassed by HRW strongly suggests that he was effectively lynched. The testimony includes an admission by a key militia commander that "the situation was a mess... it was a violent scene... it was very confusing." Cellphone footage obtained by the organisation shows that among other injuries he was stabbed in the anus, probably with a bayonet.
It was on the fall of Tripoli on 28 August 2011 that Gaddafi and a small entourage fled the capital. Nobody was sure where he had gone: some members of his family turned up in neighbouring Algeria. Now we know that he headed to Sirte, 450km along the coast to the east, the formerly shabby village which he had promoted as the capital of his putative "United States of Africa."
Attacked from both Benghazi to the east and Misrata to the west, the siege of this city of some 70,000 people continued for nearly two months. Its defence was in the hands of Gaddafi's fourth son, Mutassim. As the militia fighters closed in, Gaddafi and his companions were forced to move frequently, finishing up in District Two, on the eastern outskirts.
"We first stayed in the city centre," Mansour Dhao, head of the People's Guard, told HRW, "but then the mortars started to reach there... Finally we moved to District Two. We didn't have a reliable food supply any more... There was no medicine. We had difficulty getting water – the water tanks were targeted, or maybe they were just hit in random shelling... We changed places every four or five days."
Gaddafi himself "spent most of his time reading the Koran and praying", Dhao said. "His communications with the world were cut off: there was no television, nothing. We had no duties, we were just between sleeping and being awake. Nothing to do.
"[As time went on] Muammar Gaddafi became more and more angry. Mostly he was angry about the lack of electricity, communications and television, his inability to communicate to the outside world. We would go and see him and sit with him for an hour or so, and he would ask, 'Why is there no electricity? Why is there no water?'"
Then during the night from October 19 to October 20, the remnant of Gaddafi's forces holed up in District Two came under intensive and continuous bombardment by rebel Grad missiles and artillery. Mutassim organised a break-out, loading civilians and the wounded into a convoy of pick-ups, heavily loaded with arms and ammunition. But the planned departure time of 3.30 or 4am slipped to 8am, by which time the militia fighters were ready for them.
The convoy's hopes of breaking through the encircling forces were slim. They managed to reach a road leading south out of the city, but then a drone-fired missile exploded next to the car carrying Gaddafi. "It caused such a powerful blast that the air bags inflated and I was hit by shrapnel," said Dhao.
Mutassim Gaddafi's way was blocked in every direction, and drones and war planes circled overhead. The road he now led the convoy down was blocked by a militia base but he headed straight for it. "The convoy came towards our brigade building," militia commander Khalid Ahmed Raid recalled, "and shot at our gate with rocket-propelled grenades... so we began to fight back. They tried to go around our base... we opened fire on them with our [anti-aircraft] guns."
Nato planes now dropped two 12,500lb low-altitude airburst bombs on the convoy, destroying 14 vehicles, killing at least 53 people and forcing Gaddafi and his inner circle, all of whom survived, to flee on foot.
They took refuge in a nearby villa compound, but again came under heavy militia fire. A survivor later reported seeing Gaddafi there, "wearing a helmet and a bullet-proof vest, [with] a handgun in his pocket and carrying an automatic weapon... Then the villa started being shelled so we ran. There were a lot of cement construction blocks outside so we hid among those."
Mansour Dhao now persuaded his chief that they should go under the main road by means of drainage pipes, with the hope of reaching the safety of farms on the far side. But as soon as they emerged, militia fighters were on to them. Gaddafi's guards threw grenades to force them, but the third one they threw rebounded, exploding in their midst, killing the guard who threw it and wounding Gaddafi in the head. Militia fighters poured down to the pipes, astonished to find Gaddafi there.
It was in the subsequent three minutes and 38 seconds that the rebels' lust for vengeance erupted, captured in the phone footage obtained by HRW. "The situation was a mess," local militia commander Khalid Ahmed Raid admitted. "It was a violent scene. He was put on the front of a pick-up truck that tried to take him away and he fell off. It was very confusing. People were pulling his hair and hitting him. We understood there needed to be a trial, but we couldn't control everyone." When Gaddafi was eventually loaded into an ambulance, he was "nearly naked and apparently lifeless," HRW states. By the time he arrived in Misrata, a journey of at least two hours, he was "almost certainly dead."

Destruction Comes To Aleppo, Syria..If We Don’t Talk What Can We Do?

Warfare and chaos have come to the ancient streets of Aleppo, Syria's largest city.
 Rebel groups battling Syrian government forces moved into the metropolis in
 recent weeks, in an effort to liberate it from the control of Syrian president,
Bashar al-Assad. Fierce street battles and air attacks followed, leaving
behind a shattered city, strewn with charred rubble and bodies in many places.
 An estimated 30,000 Syrians have already been killed in the past 18
months of civil war, and as many as 700,000 will have fled the country
by the end of 2012, according to the United Nations. [36 photos at]

The Living Dead in Karachi Turned Bad Because a Non Existing Movie


KARACHI: A protest against the sacrilegious movie turned ugly on Sunday when the police resorted to a baton-charge and opened fire on a rally of the Majlis-i-Wahdat Muslimeen (MWM) that was heading towards the US Consulate. A protester was killed and eight others injured, while 22 policemen were hurt. However, in a press conference after the protest, the MWM denied the death of the protester saying he is under treatment at a hospital.

Despite the strong police action, the protesters succeeded in reaching the gates of the heavily guarded consulate building.

Following the protest, violence erupted in the MA Jinnah road area and Keamari in which armed miscreants torched a traffic police kiosk, five vehicles, including four police vans, and a petrol pump.

Blaming the protesters for the violence, police sources said that the rally announced by the MWM against the movie was proceeding towards the US Consulate when its leaders were told to stop at the Molvi Tameezuddin Khan Road. However, the MWM leaders ignored police directions and continued to proceed towards the consulate. At the same time, they also started pelting stones at the policemen deployed to protect the consulate. After coming under attack, the policemen resorted to a baton charge and tear gas shelling on the protesters. The police, meanwhile, called in a water cannon vehicle to control the crowd.

Meanwhile, reports came in of firing on the rally. While the organisers blamed the police for shooting at the protesters, Station House Officer (SHO) Ahmed Khan of the Jackson police station — who was injured during the violence — said it was not yet clear who had fired.

The injured were later moved to the Civil Hospital, Karachi, while one injured Raza Taqvi was moved to the Aga Khan Hospital where during treatment he expired. He was a resident of Abbas Town, while the injured were identified as Komail Raza, Shahid Hussain, Abbas Raza, Hasan Raza, Hussain, Umair and others. SHO Khan added that during the violence, about 22 policemen were also injured after being hit by stones.

The police said that afterwards, violence spread to Keamari Town where armed men resorted to aerial firing. Some miscreants also torched a traffic police kiosk in the area. The enraged mob was taken on by the Rangers as well, who also baton charged and rounded up some protesters from the spot.

Soon after, protesting against the arrest of activists of the Imamia Students Organisation and MWM, other activists of the party launched a protest and sit-in on the main M A Jinnah Road and demanded the release of their colleagues detained by the law enforcers.

Armed miscreants attacked two police mobiles near Prince and Capri cinemas on the main M A Jinnah Road and later torched them. Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Malik Ehsan of the Saddar Division confirmed that the miscreants had torched a police mobile of the Korangi police station and one of the Traffic Department.

Later, the violence expanded to the Numaish area and Guru Mandir Chowrangi where armed miscreants torched two more vehicles, including a police mobile, and also torched a petrol pump near the Guru Mandir Chowrangi.

As some media persons tried to enter the disturbed areas, unidentified miscreants attacked them. A DSNG van of a private TV channel was damaged and its staff was beaten up.

In Abbas Town and Abul Hasan Isphani Road, armed men resorted to aerial firing and forced the traders to close their shops.

Fasahat Mohiuddin adds: A spokesman for the MWM, said that a protester was shot dead while 18 others sustained injuries when a huge rally they had taken out reached near the US consulate. He claimed that the Rangers and police deployed at the US consulate opened fire, which resulted in injuries to them. He said the Labbaik Ya Rasoolullah (PBUH) rally was taken out to condemn the US and Israel over the blasphemous movie ‘Innocence of Muslims’.

A Jaffria Alliance spokesman, Ali Ahmer, talking to The News, said Raza Taqvi, 40, was shot dead in the firing of the police, Rangers and the ‘American security forces deployed at the US Consulate’. However, a spokesman for the US consulate categorically denied that any firing had taken place from inside the consulate or that the consulate had been breached by the protesters.

The MWM spokesman said that 18 other participants sustained injuries. The rally participants were raising slogans against the USA and demanded of the government to expel the US ambassador to Pakistan.

“The United States and the Zionist Israeli regime are involved in producing the blasphemous movie, which is an unpardonable crime,” said Maulana Sadiq Raza Taqvi, an official of the MWM while speaking at the rally.

Later, supporters of the MWM held a sit-in on the MA Jinnah road but dispersed peacefully late in the evening when the police released the party activists arrested from MT Khan road. The also denied that a protester had been killed during the protest.

Earlier, the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat also staged a large rally here at the Karachi Press Club on Sunday afternoon, condemning the movie that not only hurt the sentiments of Muslims across the world but also resulted in massive protests.

A large police contingent was deployed at the KPC and protesters were not allowed to go beyond the press club. The religious leaders and participants of the rally, holding placards in their hands, demanded the government expel the US ambassador while some enraged participants burnt a US flag during the demonstration.

Meanwhile, thousands of people rallied across Pakistan on Sunday to denounce an anti-Islam film with protestors burning US flags and effigies of President Barack Obama, and calling to sever ties with Washington.

Widespread anger has spread across the country denouncing the anti-Islam movie, with some urging death for the filmmaker and others demanding that the US ambassador to Pakistan be expelled.

In Lahore, thousands of religious activists joined a Hurmat-e-Rasool (SAW) march to condemn the blasphemous movie, demanding that Islamabad end all pacts and sever diplomatic ties with the US.

The gathering also decided to call an All Parties Conference to take important decisions on the issue. The mammoth gathering of religious activists on the call of Jamatud Dawa unanimously demanded a death sentence for the US filmmaker and Bishop Terry Jones for their blasphemous acts.

The gathering was addressed by JD Ameer Hafiz Saeed, PML-Z President Ejazul Haq, Prof Abdul Rehman Makki, Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer, Maulana Ameer Hamza, Qari Zawwar Bahadur, Maulana Amjad Khan, Hafiz Abdul Ghaffar Ropri and others.

The march started from Nila Gunbad Chowk and concluded at Masjid-e-Shuhada as the people chanted vociferous slogans against the US, Israel and India.

Jamatud Dawa Ameer Hafiz Saeed said a blasphemy law should be made at the international level to protect the honour of all prophets.

Meanwhile, Jamaat-e-Islami ameer Syed Munawar Hasan said a large number of the youth had gathered under the banner of the JI and they would spare no sacrifices for real change in the country. He was addressing a huge rally organised by Shabab-e-Milli on Punjab University New Campus.

Moreover, addressing a press conference, Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadith leader Hafiz Zubair Ahmed Zaheer said the protest by Muslims against blasphemy was natural. The Insaaf Student Federation also staged a protest demonstration.

Agencies add: Meanwhile, the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (F) held a protest demonstration against the anti-Islam movie made by an American citizen.

A large number of JUI students and workers participated in the protest which was held outside the Lahore Press Club. The participants were carrying banners and placards inscribed with different slogans against the US government.

Addressing the occasion, JUI (F) central leader Maulana Amjad Khan strongly condemned the anti-Islam movie. JUI city amir Qari Sanaullah, Qari Saeed Amjad and others also spoke on the occasion.

Earlier, in Sialkot, a large number of people participated in a protest rally against the blasphemous movie while a rally was held by the Tehreek Khatam-e-Nabuwat.

The rally began from Allama Iqbal Chowk and ended at the same point after passing through all the city main roads and bazaars. The participants were holding placards and banners. They chanted anti-US slogans.

The JUI and Balochistan Muttahida Mahaz (BMM) held separate demonstrations in Quetta.In Multan, local traders held a rally and burnt effigies of the film-maker and controversial US pastor Terry Jones, who had promoted the film.Some 500 protesters also rallied in Muzaffarabad, where the local chief of Jamaat-ud-D…..
