Woman given complimentary glass of wine on Emirates flight, then arrested in Dubai for drinking it

“Radha Stirling, Detained in Dubai’s chief executive, said it is ‘wholly illegal for any tourist to have any level of alcohol in their blood, even if consumed in flight and provided by Dubai’s own airline.’”

That sounds like a Sharia trap just waiting to be sprung.

“Mom detained in Dubai after drinking complimentary glass of wine on Emirates flight,” by Kathleen Joyce, Fox News, August 10, 2018:

Ellie Holman said she was detained along with her daughter after drinking a glass of wine on an Emirates flight to Dubai.

A mother from Kent, England, and her young daughter were jailed in Dubai for three days – where she was allegedly denied water and forced to clean toilets – after she admitted to drinking a glass of wine on the incoming Emirates flight from London, but Dubai officials have a different side of the story.

It’s illegal to drink alcohol or be intoxicated in public in Dubai, one of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates.

Ellie Holman, a 44-year-old dentist originally from Sweden who resides in Britain with her husband and their three children, was arrested on July 13 after landing in Dubai with her 4-year-old daughter, the Press Association reported.

Upon arrival in Dubai, an official reportedly told Holman she needed to return to the United Kingdom immediately because of an invalid visa, at which point she took out her phone and started filming the encounter, according to human rights group Detained in Dubai.

Holman said the official was “dismissive and rude” to her, and asked if she had been consuming alcohol. She admitted to the official that she had a complimentary glass of wine on the Emirates flight.

Holman, unaware that it was an offense to film the encounter, and illegal to drink alcohol, was taken into custody, Detained in Dubai reported. The mother and her daughter also had their passports and electronic devices confiscated.

Holman said in a statement to Detained in Dubai that the prison guards also attempted to pull out her hair extensions, and the prison facility was “hot and foul-smelling.” She claimed she and her daughter were forced to sleep on a “filthy mattress” and to clean toilets.

“My little girl had to go to the toilet on the cell floor. I have never heard her cry in the same way as she did in that cell,” Holman said in a statement.

Holman added that she was given food that “smelled like rotting garbage.” She said her husband and friends tried to visit her in jail, but they were not allowed to see her.

Holman was released on bail days later, but could face “being detained in Dubai for up to a year while awaiting a court hearing,” the Press Association reported. Her passport was confiscated until the case is finished, and she claims to have already lost thousands of dollars in missed wages and legal costs….

Radha Stirling, Detained in Dubai’s chief executive, said it is “wholly illegal for any tourist to have any level of alcohol in their blood, even if consumed in flight and provided by Dubai’s own airline. It is illegal to consume alcohol at a bar, a hotel and a restaurant, and if breathalyzed, that person will be jailed.”

FRANCE: Six ‘youths’ ‘lynch’ man defending his wife outside Muslim-migrant ‘no-go’ suburb of Saint-Denis

“Youth,” “Asian,” “immigrant,” “immigrant youth” — all sharia-compliant media euphemisms for Muslim.

MAN DEFENDING HIS WIFE ‘LYNCHED’ BY SIX YOUTHS IN FRANCE

A TRIO OF SEVENTEEN-YEAR-OLD YOUTHS IN THE FRENCH DEPARTMENT OF VAL-D’OISE WERE ARRESTED EARLY TUESDAY MORNING AFTER THEY “LYNCHED” A MAN COMING TO THE AID OF HIS WIFE, WHO WAS ALSO ATTACKED BY THE GROUP.

By Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, August 8, 2018:

The incident occurred sometime between the late night of Monday and early morning Tuesday and saw the wife of the victim confront a group of six youths who were being loud and obnoxious in the street outside of the couple’s home, Le Parisien reports.

While confronting the drunken youths, the woman was said to have been met with a torrent of abusive language and during the confrontation one of the men dropped a glass bottle which shattered on the ground and then proceeded to attack the woman with it.

The husband of the woman then attempted to come to her aid and, according to witnesses, was thrown on the ground and viciously beaten, being kicked repeatedly in the body and the head.

Police arrived on the scene a short time later and arrested three members of the group of youths while the man and his wife, both believed to be in their thirties, were taken to nearby Eaubonne hospital.

The location of the attack, Val-d’Oise, lies just north of the ‘no-go’ heavily migrant-populated suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis, which often see incredibly brutal attacks and riots, including a 37-year-old man having his gold teeth ripped out by thieves in the area last month.

Sarcelles, a heavily migrant-populated sub-prefecture within Val-d’Oise, also made headlines in 2014 due to the extensive riots which occurred following an illegal pro-Palestine demonstration.

The riots, which many have considered to have an anti-Semitic element, saw 200 masked individuals attempt to attack a local synagogue while fires were set at the Garges-les-Gonesse-Sarcelles RER station.

Earlier this year a lesbian couple was attacked at an RER station in the department by a gang of “youths” who called the pair “lesbian whores” before assaulting them.

Muslim teens forced to marry, raped and impregnated — UK issues their Muslim husbands entry Visas

Leftists and Islamic apologists sometimes throw up to me the fact that I am banned from entering the UK, as if it were proof that I am some sort of “extremist.” In reality, the UK has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihadis and Islamic supremacists, while banning foes of jihad terror.

Meanwhile, the British government recently banned Martin Sellner, Brittany Pettibone, Lauren Southern and Lutz Bachmann from entering, all for the crime of opposing jihad terror and Sharia oppression, and thereby made it clear that it is more authoritarian and unwilling to uphold the freedom of speech than ever – at least when it comes to criticism of Islam, Muslim rape gangs, and mass Muslim migration.

Even worse, the bannings of Sellner, Pettibone, Southern, and Bachmann were just part of a long pattern. Pamela Geller and I were banned from entering Britain in 2013, apparently for life, also for the crime of telling the truth about Islam and jihad. Just days after Geller and I were banned, the British government admitted Saudi Sheikh Mohammed al-Arefe. Al-Arefe has said:

“Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight.”

And Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.

The UK Home Office also admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”

Theresa May’s relentlessly appeasement-minded government also admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country.

“Visas for men who forced girls into marriage,” by Paul Morgan-Bentley, The Times, August 2, 2018 (thanks to David):

Women and girls raped after being sent abroad, then Home Office lets illegal husbands settle in UK

British teenagers are being forced to marry abroad and are raped and impregnated while the Home Office “turns a blind eye” by handing visas to their husbands, The Times has found.

Officials received dozens of reports last year that women wanted to block visas for men they had been made to marry in countries including Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and the United Arab Emirates. In almost half of their cases the visas were approved, records show.

Yvette Cooper, chairwoman of the home affairs select committee, said she would demand answers from the Home Office over the findings.

Experts believe that there are thousands of victims in Britain as the vast majority are too afraid to come forward….

Muslim threatens to murder Tommy Robinson and attack his wife with acid

“Earlier this week his appeal was delayed, with Dein arguing there had been procedural ‘deficiencies’ giving rise to ‘prejudice’ during his sentencing….Which specific parts of the contempt laws Robinson had broken were also not revealed, Dein said. ‘The proceedings were unnecessarily and unjustifiably rushed. They were conducted in haste,’ he argued.”

Meanwhile, would authorities be this sanguine about the threats to Robinson and his wife if the Robinsons were Muslim and the one threatening them was non-Muslim? What do you think?

Just another day in Theresa May’s shabby little police state.

“Tommy Robinson Lawyer: Judge Did Not View Evidence, Islamists Threatening Acid Attack on Tommy’s Wife,” by Liam Deacon, Breitbart, July 21, 2018:

The judge who rushed to send activist Tommy Robinson to jail did not even watch the full video in which he supposedly breached contempt of court laws, his lawyers have claimed.

He is currently being held in segregation for his own safety in prison, but a radical Islamic extemist has managed to deliver a message to his cell threatening to kill him and attack his wife with acid.

The message was reportedly from jailed terror supporter Sayful Islam, from Robinson’s hometown of Luton, and used his spouse’s full name, The Times reports….

Robinson was jailed in May after filming outside Leeds Crown Court during the trial of an alleged rape gang which was being hidden from the public.

Judges also banned reporting on Robinson’s sentencing in the British media, with many articles wiped from the Internet.

Jeremy Dein QC, in his written grounds of appeal, claimed Robinson was subjected to “summary justice in the extreme, unnecessary and unfair.”

He added: “He was in no position to give clear instructions, and could not be expected to make sound decisions in pressurised circumstances, his liberty being at stake.”…

Earlier this week his appeal was delayed, with Dein arguing there had been procedural “deficiencies” giving rise to “prejudice” during his sentencing….

Which specific parts of the contempt laws Robinson had broken were also not revealed, Dein said.

“The proceedings were unnecessarily and unjustifiably rushed. They were conducted in haste,” he argued.

Iran arrests teenage girl over Instagram video of her dancing in bedroom without hijab

Once again, where are the feminists? Absolutely silent. To speak out in defense of Maedeh Hojabri would be “Islamophobic.”

“Iran arrests teenage girl over Instagram video of her dancing in bedroom,” by Maya Oppenheim, Independent, July 8, 2018:

An Iranian teenage girl has been detained for posting videos of herself dancing in her bedroom on Instagram.

Maedeh Hojabri, an 18-year-old gymnast, admitted breaking moral norms in a state TV video broadcast on Friday.

She maintained that was not her goal and that she was simply attempting to garner more followers, although it was not clear whether her statement was made under duress.

Local news website Shabooneh said Ms Hojabri – who has attracted tens of thousands of followers – and three other individuals were detained on similar charges in recent weeks before being released on bail.

She had posted around 300 videos on her account – many of which saw her dancing in both Iranian and Western styles.

The teenager also appeared in videos without wearing the compulsory Islamic headscarf.

Her performances had thousands of followers on various accounts bearing her name, ranging from 12,000 to 66,000 followers. None of the accounts were verified.

Iranian police have said they plan to shut down similar Instagram accounts and the judiciary is considering blocking access to the site….

July, 1625: When Moroccan Muslims Seized White Slaves in England

In my new book The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS, I recount how in July 1625, a twenty-ship contingent of jihadi pirates from Morocco arrived in Mount’s Bay in southern England. Bursting into the local parish church during a service, they captured sixty men, women, and children from the terrified congregation and took them back to Morocco, to live a life of slavery. At Looe, they took eighty more and set the town ablaze. In a series of similar raids, they took two hundred people as slaves and seized twenty-seven British ships as well.

All this is forgotten in England today, where any discussion of the jihad threat will get you charges of “Islamophobia” and “racism.” That’s the value of history: to remind people that people didn’t always think and act the same way, and that the present way they think and act may not be correct or wise, based on past experience. A good history book is like a ticket to a faraway, exotic land — but far cheaper, and generally more enlightening. Fight back against today’s prevailing and fashionable false assumptions: click here to preorder The History of Jihad From Muhammad to ISIS.

Bipartisan Bill to Counter ‘Palestinian’ Textbooks That ‘Demonize Israel’ Introduced in Congress

Members of Congress are considering a bill that’s supported by both Republicans and Democrats that will review textbooks used by “Palestinians” that call for jihad against the Jews and that further an anti-Israel sentiment.

Rep. David Young, a Republican from Iowa, introduced the bill, entitled the “Palestinian Authority Educational Curriculum Transparency Act.”

Rep. David Young

It calls for the State Department to step in and take a closer look at these types of textbooks.

The Algemeiner has more:

Members of Congress have brought forward a bipartisan bill to review textbooks and other materials used in Palestinian schools that have been accused of promoting extremism.

The Palestinian Authority Educational Curriculum Transparency Act — introduced in the House of Representatives on Thursday by Rep. David Young (R-Iowa) — calls on the US State Department to annually verify whether educational resources published by the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the United Nations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip continue to encourage “violence or intolerance toward other nations or ethnic groups.”

The bill notes that despite being reformed in 2016 and 2017, Palestinian curriculums for grades 1 through 11 “fail to meet the international standards of peace and tolerance in educational materials established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.”

Textbooks used by the PA and the UN’s Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) likewise “demonize Israel, encourage war, and teach children that Palestinian statehood can be achieved through violence,” it warns.

UNRWA — which has in the past asserted that its textbooks have been rigorously reviewed to ensure they are in line with UN standards — maintains 349 schools in the Palestinian territories, with 240,400 students in Gaza and 50,000 students in the West Bank.

If passed, the State Department will be required to inform Congress whether any US foreign aid was used to fund the inciting materials, and of any steps the PA and UNRWA have taken to address the situation.

“If the report finds that the hate has not been removed, the House Foreign Affairs Committee will not tolerate US funds being used to teach the curriculum in UNWRA and PA schools,” said Marcus Sheff, CEO of the Institute for Monitoring Peace and Cultural Tolerance in School Education (IMPACT-se), which was involved in drafting the legislation.

In such a scenario, “sanctions will necessarily be applied,” he told The Algemeiner.

A review carried out by IMPACT-se last year found that PA textbooks “groom young Palestinians to sacrifice themselves to martyrdom,” promote the idea of a mass “return” to Israel, and “feature a radical Islamist, and occasionally, a Salafi worldview.”

The findings were used to encourage European Union lawmakers to approve amendments in April to prevent aid to the PA from financing educational materials considered discriminatory or intolerant.

“American and European lawmakers’ growing awareness about PA incitement in schools comes with a crucial understanding of how large an impediment to peace and tolerance the PA curriculum really is,” Sheff said. “The PA’s donor nations are in the best position to demand change from PA leaders.”

Washington was the leading donor to UNRWA in 2017, which provides food aid, healthcare, and other social services to more than five million Palestinians across the Middle East. Its $364 million contribution was more than double that of the EU, the second largest funder. The US pledged early this year to withhold aid to UNRWA until it undergoes reforms, ultimately cutting some $305 million in assistance, the agency’s chief said in April.

Rep. Young’s bill — co-sponsored by Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL), and Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) — has been submitted to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs for review.

It comes three months after Congress passed the Taylor Force Act, which cuts US aid to the PA until Ramallah stops paying salaries to convicted Palestinian terrorists and their families. The legislation was named after a US Army veteran and Vanderbilt University graduate student killed in a Palestinian terrorist attack while visiting Israel in 2016.

African migrants report slavery, torture in 99% Muslim Algeria

Muslim Arabs holding black slaves continues to this day in countries such as Mauritania and Sudan.

Now:

Dozens of Africans say they were sold for labour and trapped in slavery in Algeria in what aid agencies fear may be a widening trend of abusing migrants headed for a new life in Europe.

Algeria is 99% Muslim.

Just as we do not hear gay activists loudly opposing Islamic hate and intolerance against them, nor do we  hear feminist outrage over the deplorable treatment of women in Islam. We also do not hear an outcry from black activists about black slavery in Islam. And if they did speak out, the mainstream media would absurdly label them “racist” and “intolerant.”

“African migrants report torture, slavery in Algeria,” by Nellie Peyton, Reuters, May 30, 2018:

DAKAR (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Dozens of Africans say they were sold for labour and trapped in slavery in Algeria in what aid agencies fear may be a widening trend of abusing migrants headed for a new life in Europe.

Algerian authorities could not be reached for comment and several experts cast doubt on claims that such abuses are widespread in the north African country.

The tightly governed state has become a popular gateway to the Mediterranean since it became tougher to pass through Libya, where slavery, rape and torture are rife.

Amid a surge in anti-migrant sentiment, Algeria since late last year has sent thousands of migrants back over its southern border into Niger, according to the United Nations Migration Agency (IOM), where many tell stories of exploitation.

The scale of abuse is not known, but an IOM survey of thousands of migrants suggested it could rival Libya.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation heard detailed accounts of forced labour and slavery from an international charity and a local association in Agadez, Niger’s main migrant transit hub, and interviewed two of the victims by telephone.

“The first time they sold me for 100,000 CFA francs ($170),” said Ousmane Bah, a 21-year-old from Guinea who said he was sold twice in Algeria by unknown captors and worked in construction….

BLOWBACK: The Tommy Effect

Last Friday, Tommy Robinson became a political prisoner in “Soviet” England.  He was arrested during his live-stream reporting of the sentencing of rape gang who kept young girls as sex slaves.  Tommy was rushed to jail, and subsequently the UK government issued a media ban on the event. UK soon discovered it could silence the British press, but it couldn’t silence the world. So, they lifted the ban.

The UK censorship represents a heavy handed move by the Establishment to gag Tommy from reporting truth about the politics of Islam in Britain.

But the truth proved more powerful than the UK’s mainstream media ban. The blowback from the British court’s initial censorship of Tommy’s arrest and incarceration has produced world-wide sympathy for him and a concern for the state of free speech in the West. The English courts inadvertently made Tommy a symbol for free speech. Their call to silence became a wake up call.

The British government’s response was more like the totalitarian tactics of a Communist country or an Islamic nation than a supposedly free Western society. Their action to silence the press indicates a desire to operate in secret and exposes a government that no longer trusts its own citizens. If a country no longer trusts is own citizens or cares what they think, it is no longer a representative government.  When a government doesn’t listen, and acts independently of the people, it is a tyranny.

This gang rape trial smears the political Elite’s migration fantasy. The British government is complicit in a failed social experiment and wont’t admit it. Instead, they want to cover it up. These political crimes of coverup are on par with the crime itself. But the attempted coverup failed. As the people of the UK become more and more sick of the lies, sick of cover ups, sick of pretending, sick of a government that won’t listen, there will be continued blowback. All is not lost.

Tommy is the working class hero for the forgotten men and women of England who have now been galvanized into protest. We can only hope this will ultimately lead to the organization of new political party, one that is formed on a strong platform of freedom of speech and individual liberty. Britain is attempting to silence critics of Islam at every turn. This is dhimmitude, submission to Sharia. We must refuse to stand for it.
