State of Art of Arabic Abuses on Fiancée under suspicion.

'Suspicious' man lures and rapes fiancée. 

    Staff 24/7 EMIRATES | 
Thursday, May 30, 2013:: A Saudi man who suspected his fiancé was not faithful to him lured her into their presumed marriage home, tied her up and raped her. He filmed the rape and told her she must come to him like a “dog” whenever he wants.
Fearing he would cause a scandal with pictures of her naked body, the girl submitted to him for a while before she decided to resort to the Gulf Kingdom’s feared religious police, who asked her to go along with him so they would trap him.
On that day, her fiancée phoned the girl and told her to come immediately, which she did. Just after he arrived by his car, members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice were waiting for him.
After arresting him, they searched his mobile phone and found enough evidence of what the girl had told them. Besides rape and threats, she told them she was also tortured.
“She told police that her fiancée tied her up, raped her then beat her up…he then ordered her to repeat after him ‘whenever I tell you to come, you come like a dog,” the Arabic language daily Sabq said in a report from the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah. [Courtesy: 24/7 EMIRATES]

stabbed in the throat in the busy commercial district of La Defense, outside Paris,
Saturday May 25, 2013.
By Edward Cody,May 25, 2013 | Washington Post | Paris :: A uniformed French soldier on an antiterrorism patrol in the western suburbs of Paris was wounded in the neck Saturday by a robed assailant wielding a box cutter, police and subway authorities said.

The soldier was reported to be out of danger after being transported to a nearby military hospital. But the attack sent a shudder through the French capital because it recalled the gory killing of a soldier in the streets of London on Wednesday allegedly by a pair of homegrown Muslim extremists, an act that the British government called terrorism.
The lone attacker was described as a young man wearing a Muslim prayer cap and a North African-style robe called a jellabah. According to a police account, he was monitored on security cameras and seen shedding his robe and fleeing in European clothes before disappearing into the crowd in a subway and train entrance.
A broad manhunt was launched to track him down. President Francois Hollande, in a televised statement from Ethiopia, where he is on a state visit, urged security authorities to “look at all the possibilities” as they investigate the assault.
The attack took place at the La Defense business center in the suburbs, about a mile west of the Arc de Triomphe. Military patrols have been deployed for months in transit centers around Paris and French cities as part of an antiterrorism plan called Vigipirate.
The patrols usually comprise several soldiers in camouflage and armed with French-made FAMAS automatic rifles. There was no word on what other members of the patrol did or whether anybody fired at the assailant.
French authorities have warned for months that the country is in danger of a terrorist attack in reprisal for France’s military intervention in January against Islamist jihadists in northern Mali. Several thousand French soldiers remain in Mali pending arrival of a U.N. and African peace maintenance force.

22-Year-Old Muslim Charged With Murder in British Soldier.

22-Year-Old Charged With Murder in British Soldier's Hacking Death.

Wednesday, 29 May 2013 | NewsMax | UK :: British police on Wednesday charged with murder one of the two chief suspects in last week's brutal suspected Islamist attack against a British soldier on a London street.

Metropolitan Police confirmed they had charged Michael Adebowale, 22, with the murder of 25-year-old Lee Rigby, who died following the May 22 attack in Woolwich, south east London.

"Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Service's Counter Terrorism Command have . . . charged a man with the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich on Wednesday 22 May," said the police statement.

"Michael Adebowale, 22, of Greenwich, was charged with the murder of Lee Rigby contrary to common law.

"He was also charged with possession of a firearm," it added.

The suspect has been remanded in custody and will appear at Westminster Magistrate's Court on Thursday morning.

The other suspect, 28-year-old Michael Adebolajo, remains under guard at a London hospital, police added.

Both men required hospital treatment after being shot and injured by police at the murder scene last week.

A post-mortem examination found that Rigby died of "multiple incised wounds", police said on Wednesday.

Rigby was hacked to death in broad daylight before Adebolajo delivered an Islamist tirade to passers-by.

London's Metropolitan Police added, in a statement, that Rigby had been hit by a car before the fatal attack.

A formal hearing into Rigby's death will open at Southwark Coroner's Court in London on Friday, police added.

The announcements came as counter-terror detectives urged witnesses to come forward.
Adebowale was discharged from hospital on Tuesday before being held at a south London police station ahead of questioning.

Fellow suspect Adebolajo remains in a stable condition.

Adebolajo was filmed holding a bloody knife and a meat cleaver shortly after the attack, telling a passer-by he killed Rigby because British soldiers were killing Muslims every day.

Eight other people have been arrested over the case, including two women released without charge.

Both Adebowale and Adebolajo are converts to Islam who grew up in Christian Nigerian families.

Drone death: a blow to Taliban in peace process in Pakistan.

Drone death a blow to Pakistani Taliban - and to peace efforts.

Islamabad | AFP | 31 May 2013 :: The killing of the Pakistani Taliban's deputy leader is a heavy blow to the militants but could also complicate peace efforts due to the loss of a relatively moderate voice, analysts say.

Waliur Rehman, second-in-command of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), was killed in the early hours of Wednesday by a US drone attack in the tribal district of North Waziristan, according to Pakistani security officials.

The TTP has killed thousands in its bloody campaign of gun and bomb attacks in recent years, attacking the Pakistani state for being insufficiently Islamic and for allying itself with the US “war on terror”.

Washington refused to confirm Rehman's death but said that if true it would mean the TTP had lost its “chief military strategist”, blamed for assaults on US forces in Afghanistan including a suicide attack that killed seven CIA agents.

The TTP groups numerous different tribal and militant factions, sometimes competing. Analyst Saifullah Khan Mehsud said the 42-year-old Rehman was the only figure since Baitullah Mehsud, the network's founder, to inspire respect across the spectrum. “His death is a big blow to the TTP, they have lost their statesman, they have lost a man who had the support of the rank and file and I believe that it will be very difficult for the TTP to replace him,” Mehsud, executive director of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) Research Centre, told AFP.

“When we look at the current leadership, mid- and high leadership among the TTP, we don't see anyone who has supposedly the capability to replace Waliur Rehman.” Rehman, who had three wives and was a member of the Mehsud tribe which dominates the TTP, was a key figure in the outfit from its inception in 2007. He came from a religious background and set up a seminary in his native South Waziristan before taking up arms.

Pakistan's incoming prime minister Nawaz Sharif has raised the possibility of talks with the Taliban to try to end the bombings and shootings that plague life on an almost daily basis. Tribal affairs and security expert Rahimullah Yusufzai said Rehman's links to the mainstream religious Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) party, seen as a possible go-between in any talks, could have made him a useful interlocutor.

“A common perception about Rehman was his political mind – he was considered as a man who believed in talks,” Yusufzai told AFP. “He was close to JUIF and his elimination from the scene would be a great setback to the peace efforts.”

TTP supremo Hakimullah Mehsud, himself several times mistakenly reported killed by US drone strikes, is seen as a more hardline militant and Mehsud the analyst said negotiating with him would be difficult. “He is considered as very volatile and considering his crimes against the Pakistani state, it would be very, very difficult for the Pakistani state to come to terms with the fact that they will have to talk with someone like him,” he said. In any event, peace talks look a distant prospect. Sharif has set accepting the Constitution and the rule of law as a condition for coming to the table, something the TTP reject. Moreover, meaningful dialogue could only go ahead with the blessing of the armed forces, Pakistan's most powerful institution.

Last month the military chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani made it clear the militants could not dictate terms for talks. “We sincerely desire that all those who have strayed and have picked up arms against the nation, return to the national fold,” he said in a speech. “However, this is only possible once they unconditionally submit to the state, its Constitution and the rule of law. There is no room for doubts when it comes to dealing with rebellion against the state.”

Yusufzai said the killing could well drive the TTP even further away from the path to peace. “Taliban will take revenge as they had already said that Pakistan military are cooperating with US on drone strikes,” he said. “But Taliban cannot take revenge on Americans, which means they will speed up their attacks on Pakistan military and security forces.”

Analyst Hasan Askari said the drone strike would raise pressure on the Taliban because they were powerless to strike back against the Americans. “It is a setback for the Pakistani Taliban. It has shown the US capacity and it will build more psychological effects on the Taliban,” Askari said. [Curtesy:Dawan].

Islamic pleasure of Molestation in Saudi Arabia.

Working women should be molested: Saudi writer.

Muslim Writer campaigning against moves to bring women into mixed-gender work environments...

    Abu Dhabi: A Saudi writer has urged his Twitter followers to sexually molest women hired to work as cashiers in big grocery stores, the latest backlash from conservatives who want to roll back limited social and economic reforms launched in Saudi Arabia.

    Abdullah Mohammad Al Dawood, who writes self-help books including one called The Joy of Talking, has stirred fierce debate this week via the internet microblogging service with the use of the hashtag harass_female_cashiers, to press for Saudi women to be forced to stay at home to protect their chastity.

    His campaign against official moves to encourage women to work in mixed gender environments has led some Twitter users to denounce him. Others however applauded him as a fighter against government efforts to westernise and corrupt the country.

    More than half a million Saudi Arabian nationals, including unprecedented if still modest numbers of women, have surged into the country’s private sector since late 2011 under a government-driven programme aimed at turning the Gulf giant’s sclerotic non-oil economy into a regional powerhouse.

Pakistan abolished Polio cell to challenge Polio eradication from the world.

ISLAMABAD, May 28: The caretaker government took another controversial step by abolishing the Prime Minister Polio Monitoring and Coordination Cell, established by the Pakistan Peoples Party government in 2011.
According to a notification, the caretaker prime minister has approved the dissolution of the Polio Cell with immediate effect. The Ministry of National Health Services, Regulations and Coordination would be the apex nodal ministry for the Polio Eradication Initiative.
Under the cell, the number of polio cases had been reduced to 58 in 2012 from the 198 cases in 2011 (a 70 percent decrease).
Former adviser to the Prime Minister for polio eradication, Shahnaz Wazir Ali, condemned the move and lashed out at the caretaker government.
“It is a very surprising move and will give a bad message to the donor agencies and the world community. It would show that the Pakistani government did not fulfill its commitments,” she told Dawn.
“The caretaker government has now placed the monitoring cell under the Ministry of National Health Services which is against the 18th amendment. Under the amendment, it is clearly stated that health is the subject of provinces,” she said.
High ranking officials associated with international donor agencies working with the polio cell have also expressed their disappointment regarding the decision. “We received a shock when we heard the polio monitoring cell was being dissolved,” said an official of an international donor agency requesting anonymity.
Caretaker Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Arif Nizami was not aware of the move. Similarly, Prime Minister Mir Hazar Khan Khoso’s spokesman Shafqat Jaleel, when approached, said the decision had not been announced and he was not aware of it. — A Reporter in Dawn

JALALABAD, Afghanistan | Wed May 29, 2013 12:09pm EDT :: (Reuters) - A suicide bomber blew himself up at the gate of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) office in the Afghan city of Jalalabad on Wednesday and two more insurgents entered the building, local officials said.

Afghan security forces were fighting the attackers inside the ICRC building, according to Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, spokesman for the governor of Nangarhar province.

Black smoke billowed out of the building after the blast at 5:30 p.m. (1300 GMT), and heavy gunfire could be heard.

A spokesman at the Geneva-based ICRC headquarters said it was in touch with the Jalalabad office, where there are six foreign members of staff and dozens of local employees.

The attack came less than a week after a band of insurgents assaulted the office of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Kabul, killing three civilians and injuring four foreign aid workers.

The ICRC's $90 million-a-year operations in Afghanistan are the group's biggest in the world. Some 1,800 ICRC staff work on projects ranging from providing orthopedic limbs to the war wounded to visiting militants in Afghan jails.

Islamic Terrorism in Iraq killed more than 500 in a month.

Iraq death toll passes 500 in May.

AFP | MAY 28, 2013 :: Violence in Iraq has killed more than 500 people in May, AFP figures showed on Tuesday, as authorities struggled to contain a wave of unrest that has raised fears of new sectarian conflict.

Meanwhile, the UN envoy urged Iraqi leaders to meet to resolve a long-running political crisis that is often linked to the inability of the country's security forces to reduce levels of violence.

As of Monday, 503 people were killed and 1,273 wounded, making May the deadliest month in at least a year, according to the data, based on reports from security and medical officials.

May is the second month in a row in which more than 400 people have been killed, for a total of 960 people in the two months.

A wave of attacks, including bombings in Baghdad that mainly targeted Shiite areas, killed 58 people on Monday and wounded 187, officials said.

"I once again urge all Iraqi leaders to do everything possible to protect Iraqi civilians. It is their responsibility to stop the bloodshed now," United Nations envoy Martin Kobler said in a statement on Tuesday.

"It is the politicians' responsibility to act immediately and to engage in dialogue to resolve the political impasse and not let terrorists benefit from their political differences," he said.

Iraq is faced with various long-running political crises over issues ranging from power-sharing to territorial boundaries, that have paralyzed the government.

The US embassy in Baghdad also condemned the deadly unrest.

Iraq has seen a heightened level of violence since the beginning of the year, coinciding with rising discontent among Iraqi Sunnis that had erupted into protests in late December.

Members of Iraq's Sunni minority, which ruled the country from its establishment after World War I until Saddam Hussein's overthrow by US-led forces in 2003, accuse the Shiite-led government of marginalizing and targeting their community.

Analysts say government policies that have disenfranchised Sunnis, coupled with Shiite-led authorities' refusal to make any major concessions to the protesters, have given militant groups fuel and room to maneuver among the disillusioned community.

The government has made some concessions aimed at placating protesters and Sunnis in general, such as freeing prisoners and raising the salaries of Sunni anti-Al-Qaeda fighters, but underlying issues have yet to be addressed.

Violence in Iraq has fallen from its peak at the height of the sectarian conflict in 2006 and 2007, but attacks remain common. [Courtesy: AFP]

A TERRIFIED prison officer was kidnapped and held hostage by the evil terrorist who inspired the horrific killing of Drummer Lee Rigby.

Al-Qaeda fanatic Parviz Khan was jailed for life for a plot to behead a soldier.

He held the warder captive for almost five hours inside one of Britain’s toughest prisons.

Khan took the officer hostage with two fellow extremists and told him he would be killed. But the warder was freed after an armed riot team was called in to Full Sutton jail and overpowered the men. The officer was left badly injured.

Authorities have linked the attack with Drummer Rigby’s killing in Woolwich last week.

Just 48 hours before the attack, Khan reacted furiously when the prison imam called for inmates to pray for Rigby.

Seething with rage Khan, 41, stood up and insisted the Woolwich murder was justified.

He and two prisoners – an African born fanatic and a white English convert – then plotted to ambush the prison officer.

They seized their chance on Sunday when they bundled him into a cleaning room in the category A part of the jail near York.

They barricaded the door and battered the officer with mop handles.

A source at the jail said: “It was inspired by the terrible death of Lee Rigby.
