"Incorporating Sharia Law into European Legal Systems": A State in India Bans Sharia

by Uzay Bulut  •  March 4, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • Lawmakers in an Indian state... have approved landmark legislation to... [ban] discrimination against women based on Islamic sharia law... personal laws that would be common for all citizens, regardless of religion.

  • Replacing sharia law with a universal civil code across all of India would vastly ensure more rights for women and children and secure gender equality, and would be most welcome in other nations on the grounds of humanitarian fairness.

  • "By 2030, there will be 60 million Muslims living in Europe. We are witnessing the process of the Islamisation of Europe, including Belgium, France, Germany and Sweden.... Mosques financed by Islamic countries are the backdrop for Muslims' lives in Europe... Koranic schools are financed mainly by the rich Gulf states." — Elżbieta Kruk, Member of the European Parliament, July 7, 2020.

  • Three choices are offered to non-Muslims: conversion to Islam, sword or dhimmitude, an inferior status in which non-Muslims are allowed to survive as long as they pay tribute.... Western nations must choose a fourth path: freedom. And this new choice would require more courage, resolve and strength as opposed to appeasement and surrender.

Lawmakers in an Indian state ruled by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) have approved landmark legislation to unify personal laws across religions, a move that bans discrimination against women based on Islamic sharia law.

Approval by the State of Uttarakhand makes it the first in the country since independence from Britain in 1947 to pass a Uniform Civil Code (UCC). The bill provides uniformity in personal laws regarding inheritance, marriage, divorce and adoption, amongst others, across various communities in Uttarakhand. The new bill mandates a set of personal laws that would be common for all citizens, regardless of religion.

According to India Today:

"The Uttarakhand UCC bill makes it mandatory to register live-in relationships and puts a complete ban on polygamy and child marriage. It also recommends a common marriageable age for girls across all faiths and similar procedures for divorce."

Bankrupt Iran: Close Their Oil Cash Cow

by Lawrence Kadish  •  March 4, 2024 at 4:00 am

History is filled with the terrible retribution inflicted on America's foes when those enemies underestimate the United States.

Consider Imperial Japan, which totally underestimated the United States. Hitler thought we could manufacture cars but never have the ability to produce tanks, an air force, a two-ocean navy and the willpower to fight and win. The Soviets told the West: "We will bury you." And Osama Bin Laden's ashes will never be found.

So when US Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) warns Iran that their role in supporting the terrorist murder of some 1,400 Israelis by Hamas has the potential to result in immensely serious "consequences," he is attempting to ensure that Tehran does not make the fatal mistake of underestimating the United States.

Escalation Towards an Independent Terrorist State

by Nils A. Haug  •  March 3, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • Both US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and UK Foreign Secretary David Cameron reveal their simplistic, and somewhat imperialist, Western approach to a complex Middle Eastern situation, irrespective of the aims and intentions of the two parties chiefly involved: the radical Islamists of Gaza and the West Bank, and the State of Israel itself.

  • "They [Hamas] told us in all of their statements that their charter is to destroy Israel and exterminate the Jews. Other countries have said the same thing. It's also in the Houthis' charter. It's in Iran's direct messaging. I think that when they tell you they want to kill you, you should believe that. I think that's the lesson." — Safra Catz, CEO of Oracle, ynetnews.com, February 24, 2024.

  • Realistically, the Palestinian claim to Gaza is based on tenuous grounds. Gaza is not the traditional homeland of the so-called Palestinian people. They are simply a collection of nomadic Arabs who forged that identity for political expediency. This arrangement was openly stated by the late PLO executive committee member, Zoheir Moshen, in an interview with James Dorsey for the Dutch newspaper Trouw, on March 31, 1977: "The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians, and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak about the existence of a Palestinian people since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct 'Palestinian people' to oppose Zionism."

  • Even if a political compromise were reached over Gaza, or, the "1949 Armistice Line" as in the revised 2017 Hamas charter, the violent struggle for control over the rest of Israel, particularly the West Bank -- the "heart" of Israel -- will persist.

The hard truth is that for millennia, the land of Israel, whether occupied by Jacob's tribes or others, has been the domain of countless generations of Israelites. The vast majority of Israel's citizens, and many Jews in the diaspora, understand their rights to retain their homeland after escaping 400 years of slavery in Egypt. At its core, the debate over this tiny area of land is founded on three primary factors: spiritual, national, and political. In the result, the conviction of the majority populace is that not one square inch of the current boundaries of Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel) can belong to anyone who might harm them again, although people of peace are always graciously allowed to reside among them.

Iran: Twin Elections and Ayatollahs' Solo Performance

by Amir Taheri  •  March 3, 2024 at 4:00 am

  • Whatever the turnout, it is clear that not a single critic of the current domestic and foreign policies will be elected.

  • The two assemblies are likely to return as more ardently committed than before to follow the "Supreme Guide" wherever he is heading.

  • It is in that sense that the twin elections have some interest. They will show that the Islamic Republic is not only hostile to any structural reform, but also unwilling to change its behavior.

  • That clarification will force the regime's many opponents, both inside and outside Iran, to abandon old fantasies about its change of behavior, let alone readiness to seek some accommodation with real or imagined foes.

Iranians went to the polls last week in what many analysts believe is the weirdest general elections in the 45-year history of the Islamic Republic.

In fact, what is on offer is a dual exercise.

One is to choose the members of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, a 290-seats unicameral legislature charged with passing laws and approving the national budget and treaties with foreign powers.

The second election is for the Assembly of Experts, an 88-seat body of theologians whose task is to supervise the work of the "Supreme Guide" (Wali al-Faqih) and, in case he is incapacitated or dies, choose a successor.

But why describe the exercise as weird?

To start with, no one knows how many people are qualified to vote. On 2 February, the Ministry of Interior said that over 65 million Iranians were qualified, but wouldn't say how many had actually registered.

Biden Administration Not Stopping Iran, Russia, China, the Houthis

by Majid Rafizadeh  •  March 2, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • What is essential to remember is that the Houthis and other proxies of Iran are in all likelihood deeply apprehensive about the prospect of their senior leadership being targeted. By refraining from targeting Houthi leaders, the United States has inadvertently emboldened the group and allowed them to act with impunity.

In recent months, the Red Sea has become a battleground for attacks by the Iran-backed Houthis of Yemen, with the Biden administration facing mounting criticism for its failure to quell the escalating violence. As the Houthi group continues to build its weapons stockpile in Yemen, supported by the Iranian regime, the urgency of the situation cannot be overstated. It is critical that the United States reevaluate its military strategy to effectively address this growing threat.

The current approach, adopted by the Biden administration, is characterized by a reluctance to directly target Houthi leadership. The administration has opted instead to focus solely on destroying weapons and equipment.

Palestinians' Musical Chairs: Replacing One Mohammed with Another Mohammed

by Khaled Abu Toameh  •  March 1, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • The assumption that a new Palestinian government headed by Mustafa (or any other figure selected by Abbas) would be different than the one headed by Shtayyeh is deadly mistaken. The cabinet shake-up is an insignificant cosmetic change.

  • If the Shtayyeh government was already working on a plan to revamp the Palestinian Authority (as the US administration is demanding), why is he being asked to be replaced with another Abbas loyalist? Is the new government headed by Mustafa going to come up with a different plan for reforming the PA? This just shows that Abbas's real objective is to play the Americans for fools by creating the impression that the new prime minister will be different than his predecessor.

  • Abbas is well aware that it is safer for him to live under Israeli security control than under the rule of Hamas, whose members killed dozens of his supporters during the 2007 Hamas coup against the Palestinian Authority.

  • Besides, Abbas knows that assuming control of the Gaza Strip in the post-war era would mean taking upon himself the almost impossible task of rebuilding the Gaza Strip and preventing Hamas and other terror groups from reasserting their power.

  • So, to appease the US administration, Abbas is once again playing the musical chairs game of the prime ministers. Abbas wants the Americans to believe that he is serious about revitalizing the Palestinian Authority and rebuilding the Gaza Strip. Abbas is hoping that his latest musical chair ploy will incentivize the international community to continue pouring millions of dollars into the coffers of the PA leadership.

On February 26, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh announced his resignation, paving the way for the formation of a new Palestinian government. The resignation came in response to pressure from the US administration on the Palestinian leadership to "revitalize" the Palestinian Authority (PA) so that it could assume control over the Gaza Strip after Hamas is removed from power.

Shtayyeh, who was appointed by PA President Mahmoud Abbas in 2019, is a veteran member of the ruling Fatah faction. The government he headed consisted of ministers affiliated with a number of political factions, as well as others known as independent technocrats.

Abbas is reportedly considering replacing the outgoing prime minister with Mohammed Mustafa, a senior PLO official who previously served as PA deputy prime minister and minister of economy. Mustafa, in addition, also served for many years as economic advisor to the PA president.

Is Trump's Mega-Fine Unconstitutional?

by Alan M. Dershowitz  •  February 29, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • The civil case against Donald Trump was brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, a prosecutor who campaigned for her elected office on a pledge to get Trump. By bringing a civil case rather than a criminal prosecution, James denied Trump a jury trial, which he could not have gotten on this kind of case; a requirement of proof beyond a reasonable doubt, and other constitutional safeguards. Now she seeks to deny him the protection of the Eighth Amendment's prohibition against excessive fines.

Arthur Engoron, the New York Supreme Court judge in the real estate case brought against Donald Trump by the state attorney general, has fined Trump and members of his family $464 million. This raises the question of whether the fine – which does not reflect damages actually done – is "excessive" under the Eighth Amendment of the US Constitution, which reads as follows: "Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted."

The court also ordered Trump to pay $111,ooo per day in interest, and that he "be barred from serving as an officer or director of a New York corporation or other legal entities in the state for three years, and cannot apply for loans from any financial institution registered in the state for three years..."

In addition, the court fined his two sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, $4 million each, and banned them from serving as executives at the Trump Organization for two years.

Pakistani Imam Preaches Jew-Hate in Belgian Parliament

by Drieu Godefridi  •  February 28, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • Three months to the day after Hamas's bloodthirsty massacre of Jews, an Islamist preacher from Pakistan comes to the rostrum of the Brussels Regional Parliament, in the capital of the European Union, to chant verses from a sura celebrating the defeat, surrender and massacre of Jews and the enslavement of Jewish women and children.

  • For his presentation, Butt was awarded a medal at the end of the same ceremony by Nawal Ben Hamou (PS), Secretary of State of the Brussels-Capital Region, who congratulated the Islamist preacher on the "quality of his integration" into Belgian society.

  • It is worth noting that this Islamist preacher of Jew-hate does not speak a word of French or Dutch, Belgium's two national languages. What a heart-warming story of "integration".

In a surreal scene revealed by Flemish anti-jihad researcher Peter Velle, on January 13, a Pakistani Islamist preacher came to the Brussels Regional Parliament in Belgium to chant verses from one of the most radical and anti-Semitic suras, Koran 33. The presentation provoked several reactions of indignation, particularly from the centre-right Mouvement Réformateur party (MR).

There Can Be No Ceasefire in Gaza with Hamas in Power

by Con Coughlin  •  February 27, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • A short, temporary ceasefire might be achievable, so long as it requires Hamas to release all of the remaining Israeli hostages it is holding.

  • The Israeli people, irrespective of their political differences, will never accept any long-term deal that allows the terrorist masterminds of Hamas to remain in control of Gaza.

For all the various efforts world leaders are investing in arranging a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, they must understand there will be no genuine prospect of peace so long as Hamas terrorists retain control of Gaza.

Numerous options have been explored in recent weeks, ranging from the Biden administration's wide-ranging plan to address numerous regional issues, from the threat posed by Iran to reopening negotiations on Palestinian statehood, to the recent attempt by Arab nations, led by Algeria, to pass a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, which was vetoed by Washington.

Palestinians Need New Leaders, Not New Governments

by Khaled Abu Toameh  •  February 26, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • The sole way to "revitalize" the Palestinian Authority is to insist that it rid itself of every leader who has failed his people and who remains in power, disregarding the will and interests of the people. That is hardly likely, at least not in the foreseeable future. No one is willingly going to forego perks and power. There is no way that Abbas or any of his senior aides are voluntarily going to step down.

  • Only a new and fresh leadership committed to reforms, democracy, and transparency has a chance of leading the Palestinians towards a better life. Sadly, leaders with such a portfolio are hard to come by in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

  • Any leader who comes through the US or Israel will be accused by Palestinians of being a traitor and collaborator with the enemies of the Palestinian people.

The assumption that 88-year-old Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will step down or agree to share power with others is a non-starter. Abbas, who was elected in 2005, is now in the 19th year of a four-year term. He has already proven that he does not care what others say about him. Pictured: Abbas appears to fall asleep during a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron October 24, 2023 in Ramallah. (Photo by Christophe Ena/Pool/AFP via Getty Images)

According to a famous Arab proverb, "A dog's tail is never straight." It is used to describe people who will never be cured of their bad habits.

This proverb comes to mind when one hears the US administration talking about the need for the "revitalization" of the Palestinian Authority (PA), established exactly 30 years ago in accordance with the Oslo Accords signed between Israel and the PLO.

Since its inception, the Palestinian Authority has consistently dismissed demands to abandon its old habits: financial corruption, bad governance, and lack of freedom of speech and a free media. It is unrealistic to expect the Palestinian leadership to introduce meaningful changes in its style of governance and in its institutions.

The US administration seems to believe that the PA, once revamped, would be qualified to manage the civilian and security affairs of the Palestinians after the current Israel-Hamas war.

Michigan Muslims Take Biden Hostage to Save Hamas

by Daniel Greenfield  •  February 26, 2024 at 4:00 am

  • Hamas may be losing in Gaza, but it's winning in Michigan.

  • [T]hey demonstrated that their only loyalty was to Islam and Muslim terrorists, not America or even the Democrats who brought them here, nurtured them and funded them.

  • At a recent speech, US Rep. Ilhan Omar, speaking in her native language, hailed Somalis as "people of one blood" and "people who know they are Somalians first".

  • Democrats are learning the hard way that their new Muslim constituency has no loyalties or allegiances to anything except, as Omar put it, "people of one blood" and, as has been made clear in Dearborn, people of the same religion. And the issue goes far beyond Israel.

  • The emerging narrative is that the Democrats aren't turning out voters because the party hasn't come out strongly enough in support of Hamas and against Israel. If the Democrats lose in 2024, that narrative will solidify and future Democratic Party presidential candidates will be warned to support Islamic terrorism and oppose those like Israel who resist it, or lose

  • A handful of Muslim settlers in Michigan built up their state within a state, they've taken the Democratic Party hostage and now intend to take the United States of America hostage.

US Rep. Rashida Tlaib is now the latest Michigan Muslim terror activist to urge Hamas supporters in the state to reject Biden in the primary by casting an "uncommitted" vote. Pictured: Tlaib addresses an anti-Israel protest at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on October 20, 2023. (Photo by Ali Khaligh/Middle East Images/AFP via Getty Images)

While Israeli commandos rescued a 70-year-old man and 60-year-old man who were being held hostage in Gaza, Hamas supporters in America were taking an 81-year-old man hostage in D.C.

Hamas may be losing in Gaza, but it's winning in Michigan.

US Rep. Rashida Tlaib is now the latest Michigan Muslim terror activist to urge Hamas supporters in the state to reject Biden in the primary by casting an "uncommitted" vote.

According to Tlaib, who became the only member of Congress to refuse to vote to condemn Hamas rapes of Jewish women, her goal is to "create a voting bloc" to stop Israel's campaign to take down the Islamic terror group.

The campaign, misleadingly titled "Listen to Michigan," to pressure Biden into saving Hamas, is being run by Layla Elabed, Tlaib's sister, and its spokesman is Abbas Alawieh, who had served as Tlaib's legislative director and then as US Rep. Cori Bush's chief of staff.

'Killed Civilians, Raped Girls and Looted Homes': The Persecution of Christians, January 2024

by Raymond Ibrahim  •  February 25, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • "[T]he cause of her death remains uncertain," says the report by the British Asian Christian Association. This tragedy is not new to Pakistan.... many Christian girls and boys have been abducted in a similar manner and later found raped and murdered. — January 9, 2024, Pakistan.

  • "Islamic extremists or extremists within the Rapid Support Forces may be behind the incident.... These incidents create additional tension for the Christians in this area and bring back painful memories of the persecution they have faced for 30 years under former President Omar Al-Bashir." — Open Doors, January 24, 2024, Sudan.

Ukraine: Putin's Mixed Messages

by Amir Taheri  •  February 25, 2024 at 4:30 am

  • If Russia wins, which means defeating NATO, it would be elevated to the position of top dog not only in Europe but on the global stage.

  • The message that takes shape is that notwithstanding his braggadocios, Putin is looking for a face-saving way out of a war that he must know he cannot win in conventional terms. In this war, Ukraine, or NATO, cannot surrender and Russia cannot throw in the towel without a cataclysmic change in its domestic politics.

What if the war is no longer about Ukraine, but what place Russia could and should have in the still chaotic process of reshaping a world order that no longer works? Pictured: Russia's President Vladimir Putin gives an interview to US talk show host Tucker Carlson at the Kremlin in Moscow on February 6, 2024. (Photo by Gavriil Grigorov/Pool/AFP via Getty Images)

Two years already! And how much longer? This is what comes to mind as the war in Ukraine enters its third year with no prospect of an end in sight.

Because war is a matter of here-and-now, one shouldn't expect those who fight it to think of its aftermath. Belligerents who do so often end up losing the war. In the current war, the stakes are so high that imagining an end of it in terms of winner-and-loser is mind-boggling.

If Russia wins, which means defeating NATO, it would be elevated to the position of top dog not only in Europe but on the global stage.

On the other hand, if Russia loses, the defeat could unleash a process that could end up dismantling the rump version of the Tsarist Empire which Vladimir Lenin called "prison of nations."

So, what to do?

I believe that President Vladimir Putin is already thinking of a way out provided as, he has been saying on a number of occasions recently, his NATO adversaries accept a face-saving compromise.

Even before the Hamas atrocities of October 7, anti-Semitism was on the rise on college campuses across the United States. Jew-haters did not need Israel's military response to heap venom on Jews. It has always been there, taking many forms throughout history.

Yet there have always been strong, courageous voices outside the Jewish community that have pushed back against the bigotry.

Consider the essay of Mark Twain who, in 1899 wrote an essay in the publication Harper's that is relevant today as it was at the turn of that century. An excerpt reveals his insight:

The EU's Complicity in Financing the Iranian Regime

by Majid Rafizadeh  •  February 24, 2024 at 5:00 am

  • Behind these seemingly benign economic [trade] transactions... lies a troubling reality: the funds generated from Europe's trade with Iran are being funneled into activities that are now prolonging violence and conflict, and posing a direct threat to European, Middle Eastern and North American security interests.... Since 2012, the Iranian regime has allocated more than $13 billion to support its network of proxies.

  • Iran's involvement in Russia's invasion of Ukraine, further underscores the malign use of funds derived from international trade. Iran has been supplying Russia with "hundreds of Iranian drones" via a direct route on the Caspian Sea, and, according to reports, "hundreds of ballistic missiles."

  • "Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to double the number of his country's troops stationed along its border with the Baltic states and Finland as part of Moscow's preparations for a potential military conflict with NATO within the next decade, Estonia's Foreign Intelligence Service said Tuesday." — USA Today, February 13, 2024.

  • It is a must that the EU takes decisive action to cut off the flow of funds to Iran and hold its regime accountable for its support of terrorism and international aggression. Only through robust and coordinated efforts can the EU effectively counter the Iranian regime's malign activities and safeguard the stability and security of the Middle East, Europe and the Free World.

Trade between Iran and the European Union (EU) has flourished over the years; this economic and diplomatic partnership is a large part of what has been fueling the Ayatollahs' support for terrorist groups and undermining regional stability. In recent years, the extent of their trade has reached significant levels, with billions of euros exchanged in goods and services. Behind these seemingly benign economic transactions, however, lies a troubling reality: the funds generated from Europe's trade with Iran are being funneled into activities that are now prolonging violence and conflict across the Middle East and beyond.

According to Iran's Tasnim News, trade between Iran and EU member states has been on the rise:

"The Statistical Office of the European Union, Eurostat, in its latest report, said the monthly trade between Iran and the European Union registered a 24 percent growth.
