#TryBeatingMeLightly 08

The “Council of Islamic Ideology” (CII), Pakistan’s 20-member constitutional “ruling” body, recently proposed a “bill” recommending that men bestow a “light beating” onto their defiant wives, and “prohibiting” mixing of the genders in “schools, hospitals and offices.”

The proposal also suggests “interacting with strangers, not wearing a hijab, and speaking too loudly, giving others cash without her husband’s permission,” among other potential activities that might incur a “light beating.”

“A husband should be allowed to lightly beat his wife if she defies his commands and refuses to dress up as per his desires; turns down demand of intercourse without any religious excuse or does not take bath after intercourse or menstrual periods,” the CII bill says, according to Pakistan’s Express-Tribune newspaper.

Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Sherani addresses a press conference in Islamabad on May 26, 2016.

CII chairman Muhammad Kahn Sherani said: “If you want her to mend her ways, you should first advise her … If she refuses, stop talking to her … then stop sharing a bed with her… and if things do not change, get a bit strict.”

A “bit strict,” he clarified, would include “hitting her with light things like handkerchief, a hat or a turban, but do not hit her on the face or private parts” to instill fear.

The CII’s proposed bill “claims” women will have all the “rights” given to them under “Sharia” law, but prohibits “interaction between unmarriageable kin” (na-mehrams) at recreational spots and offices, and bans “dance, music, and sculptures created in the name of art.”

According to the Washington Post, CII’s proposal “would ban women from appearing in television or print advertising and would prohibit female nurses from treating male patients. It also would give a husband permission to forbid his wife from visiting males other than relatives.”

It also suggests “bans” on various other activities, including women “fighting” in wars. But it allows women to “participate” in politics and become “judges,” and proposes that the “need” for a guardian for “women of age” is not required.

The proposal also says that women should not be “permitted” to receive non-relatives or foreign officials, and they should not use “birth control pills without asking their husbands.”

Proposals by the “Council of Islamic Ideology” are recommendations and are not “applicable” unless passed by legislators.

Earlier this year, the Punjab Assembly, Pakistan’s most populated province, passed a women’s protection bill, granting protection from “abusive” husbands which the CII and religious parties strongly rejected, declaring it “unIslamic.”

The “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa” (KP) government sent a “similar” bill to the Council for review, which also was “rejected” on the basis of being “unIslamic”, and announced it will prepare a “model” bill in response.

The council’s “draft proposal” has met with a “furious” response in Pakistan, including “calls” for the CII to be “disbanded.”

The “Council of Islamic Ideology” is a 54-year-old “advisory” body made up of Islamic “clerics and scholars” responsible for offering “legal” advice to Pakistani “legislators” whether laws are in line with the “teachings of Islam.”

Although CII is part of Pakistan’s governmental “structure,” and provides constitutional “recommendations” to parliament regarding “Islamic” laws, its 163-page proposal is “non-binding” and does not have to be “voted” on by the Pakistani parliament.

Copies of the proposed “163-point bill” have been sent to all provincial “assemblies” at the CII’s recommendations.

Salient points from the proposed bill address “property, marriage, motherhood, crimes, violence against women, apostasy,” and even venture into the instruments of “state acceptable” for a woman to be involved in.

Farzana Bari, “human rights activist” and academic at “Quaid-i-Azam University,” termed the proposed bill “unconstitutional.”

“Allowing a husband to beat his wife, in any way, is against Pakistan’s Constitution and the international laws and treaties that Pakistan has signed and is bound by. This Council is a burden on the Pakistani taxpayer and bringing a bad name to Muslims throughout the world.”

“Not allowing adult women to work and keeping them at home is to treat them like children or property,” she added. “This will take Pakistan further into ignorance.”

Key proposals in the bill
Property
Women will have the right to own property
Women have the right to bequeath property

Indeed, “violence” against women in The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is “rampant.”

The independent “Human Rights Commission” of Pakistan’s annual report revealed hundreds of “gang rapes, kidnappings, and burnings” and said more than 800 women had committed “suicide” or attempted to.

A Saudi Arabian Family “hung” their Ethiopian maid “upside” down from a hook and “brutally” beat her to a “bloody” pulp. She is “drenched” in blood from the “whips and sticks” that the Saudi men used to “beat” her.

Non-European Foreign workers in the Gulf states are treated as DE-facto “slaves with no human rights” and are kept as virtual “prisoners” by their respective “employers” and forced to endure “harsh treatment” for little pay.

A recent report by “Amnesty International” slammed the worsening state of “human rights abuses” in the country. Among the myriad “criticisms” leveled in the report, it was noted that “migrant” workers and other “minorities” regularly suffer “abuse and excessive use of force” at the hands of authorities.

Ironically, the Islamic law that allows a husband to “lightly beat” his wife is being “sold on the streets” of Toronto and “protested” in Pakistan.

The book distributed in a popular downtown square in Toronto, Canada from an Islamic “da’wah” (outreach) group advocates “wife beating under the right circumstances” and professes that some women may even enjoy being beaten at times as a sign of love and concern.”

#TryBeatingMeLightly 01

Te book in question, “Women in Islam & Refutation of some Common Misconceptions,” was obtained by Jonathon D. Halevi, who wrote an “expose” about the distribution and content of the book in CIJ News.

Halevi “obtained” the book from a booth advertising “Free Info on Islam” operating in Dundas Square.

He notes that the book, written by Saudi scholar Dr. Abdul-Rahman al-Sheha and printed by the Saudi “da’wah” organization the “Muslim World League,” was also handed out at Central Square of York University by “women students” belonging to the Muslim Students Association (MSA), a “Muslim-Brotherhood” linked organization.

Wife “beating” is viewed as the third and final stage of “discipline” used “to treat a wife blameworthy of immoral behavior,” according to the book, which states “how” it should be done.

“Beating without hurting, breaking a bone, leaving black or blue marks on the body, and avoiding hitting the face or especially sensitive places.”

#TryBeatingMeLightly 05

The book goes on to state that, according to psychologists, this “treatment” has proved to be effective with “two types of women”:

“The first type: Strong willed, demanding and commandeering women. These are the type of women who like to control, master and run the affairs of their husbands by pushing them around, commanding them and giving them orders.”

“The second type: Submissive or subdued women. These women may even enjoy being beaten at times as a sign of love and concern.”

#TryBeatingMeLightly 10

The book compares “wife beating to spanking a recalcitrant child” and as a remedy much like “bitter medicine” which an ill person will “gladly take to be cured of their ailment.”

Meanwhile, in Pakistan, in response to the “Council of Islamic Ideology” (CII) proposal that a husband be allowed to “lightly beat” his wife, a hash tag #TryBeatingMeLightly is trending.

Photographer Fahhad Rajper took photos of 12 Pakistani professional women with their promise of what will happen if “beaten lightly.”

Food Stamp Abuse

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 2, 2013 by andelino

After Obama’s election in 2009 a small grocery store/convenience store in Florida changed its name to the Obama Express.

Food Stamp Abuse 02

Several other stores “across” the country did the same thing.

On September 17, WBAL reported that nine retailers in Baltimore County had been arrested for “illegally redeeming food stamps” for cash and “kicking back” a portion to food stamp recipients.

These retailers did not sell them any “merchandise or food.”

One of those retailer is the “Obama Express and D&M Deli and Grocery” at 901 Harlem Avenue, Suite A & B in Baltimore, MD who currently is under investigation accused of “illegally trafficking” in food stamps.

Food Stamp Abuse 01JPG

According to the indictment, Abdullah Aljaradi age 51, allegedly obtained $2 million in “Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program” (SNAP) cash from October 2010 through July 2013 through “Electronic Benefit Transfer” (EBT) cards for food sales that never occurred.

The office of the US Attorney, District of Maryland, listed further information on the charges:

“The indictments allege that the defendants exchanged EBT benefits for cash, in violation of the food stamp program rules. The indictments allege that the defendants typically paid half the value of the EBT benefits in cash. To avoid detection, the defendants often debited the funds from the card in multiple transactions over a period of hours or days.”

As a result of “unlawful” cash transactions, the defendants “obtained” more than $6,898,000 in EBT deposits for transactions in which the stores “did not” provide food.

Food Stamp Abuse 04

Even more “blatantly”, the word on the street is people buying more than just “Food with Food Stamps.”

There are some “scrupulous” stores in the county that will let people use their EBT cards (or SNAP) to buy “booze, smokes, sex, drugs and cash.”

Food Stamp Abuse 05

Escorts, druggies, tattoo parlors and other fraudulent “scammers” who conduct “business by phone” are probably aware of the latest “technological” advances that make their business easier.

Mobile e-card readers like the PayAnywhere PAR-1 Mobile Card Reader make this sort of fraud much easier and the device itself can be purchased on Amazon for under $10.

Last year there was an article out of New England where people were caught selling the actual cards for cash.

And, of course, if you “sell or lose” your card in many states the taxpayers “foot the bill” for a new one so there’s no “incentive” to keep hold of them.

Anyone thinking drug testing “welfare” recipients might make a “dent” in this? Nah that’s just “crazy” talk.

Booze, smokes and hookers are not “approved” items to buy with Food Stamps.

Even JP Morgan who handles the processing are known for tolerating fraud and defrauding the government.

Food Stamp Abuse 03

There is a biblical adage that deals with the concept of “self-reliance” which goes something like this: “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a single day; if you teach him to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”

Unfortunately, the American “welfare system” isn’t based on this concept.

In fact, it has been so “politicized” over the years by “self-centered” men and women whose “only aim in life” is to use it and other federal “entitlements” that the one thing it “doesn’t” do is encourage recipients to better themselves.

As “bad” as that is, and as “damaging” as it is to an entire “segment” of society, what is “worse” is that the manner in which welfare programs are “set up” makes them “ripe” for abuse…and as such, they “are” abused, just like the taxpayers who fund them.

The “welfare” abuse is working “so well” there’s even a video about it.

Obama Vows Veto of House Food Stamp Bill

“It’s free food – it’s awesome!”

Obama, Guns, and Children

Obama, Guns, and Children

Looks like Obama is attempting to “heal” the young boy of a kidney stone while the girl is trying to “liberate” the kid from his “wallet” in the back pocket…

After “trotting” out young children as the “backdrop” for his “gun control” rollout yesterday, the White House released videos today of young children reading “anti-gun” letters to the camera.

“No guns, no guns, no guns, no guns!” pleads one little girl, Hinnah. “My opinion is it should be very hard for people to buy guns,” says little Julia. “It’s a free country, but I recommend there needs to be a limit with guns,” says little Grant. “I thought I would write to you to stop gun violence,” reads little Taejah.

It was already “despicable” for Obama to “exploit” children as a backdrop for his “political” posturing, “implying” that his “opposition” on useless gun control laws somehow “cares” less about children.

Now he’s taken the next step, “using” children as “spokespeople” for his agenda. Enjoy…

My inside source at the “White Castle” intercepted some written letters from “pee wee’s” Obama did not want to make public.

As you can read, there is a reason why he did not want us to see them…

Dear Mr. President Obama,

I am 7 years old and “scared” to go to school because I “drew” a picture of a stick gun last year and got in “big” trouble. The Principal would not let me “go” to school for 6 weeks. I was told I was “bad” for drawing a picture. If the picture of the gun is so “scary” I would like to have pictures of “real guns” on the school doors to keep the bad “people” away. Is that OK?

signed, Jon

Dear Mr. Obama Sir,

My Mommy and Daddy have a “lot of guns” and we all have “fun” when we watch them “shoot” on the gun range. I have heard “you” and your friends says guns are “bad” and you want to take “away” guns and bullets. Do you know that Mommy and Daddy would not be able to “protect” me and my baby sister from “bad” people? Would you send your FBI men to “protect” my Mommy and little sister then?

signed, Taurus

You gotta love this…just like the Islamic “terrorists” using children to do their “dirty” work. I don’t know whether to be ashamed of Obama or ashamed of the parents of these kids who “allowed” their children to be “exploited” to further a “political” agenda…

I wonder how much the parent(s) of these urchins were “compensated” for allowing their children to be used for “propaganda” purpose?

Isn’t “brainwashing” children a form of child “abuse?”

Scaring kids with something they know nothing about. They have no opinion on the issue, they can only repeat what they are told. Just like the Nazi Youth in Germany. Unbelievable…

Obama, Guns, and Children
(sung to the tune of “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” by Warren Zevon)

There’s violence in Connecticut
Chicago streets are red
The guns are taking over
My heart is filled with dread

There’s bitter clingers clinging
To their religion and their guns
Assault gun sales are booming
Thank God we’ve got the One

Obama, guns, and children
He’s gonna save the day
Obama, guns, and children
He’ll make it go away

The NRA is looming
With crazy LaPierre
And Alex Jones is screaming
Lord, get me outta here

Nobody needs assault guns
Or big-clip magazines
Our police will protect us
Or maybe the Marines

Obama, guns, and children
He’s gonna save the day
Obama, guns, and children
He’ll make it go away

With 23 new EOs
And a big tear in his eye
He’s takin’ care of business
The right wing’s gonna fry

Obama, guns, and children
He’s gonna save the day
Obama, guns, and children
He’ll make it go away
