Amnesty International Accuses Hamas Of Torturing, Killing Palestinians

Just freedom fighters…

Via Fox News:

Amnesty International accused Hamas militants Wednesday of abducting, torturing, and carrying out summary executions of Palestinians during last year’s conflict in the Gaza Strip.

The report, the last of four released by the human rights group detailing events during the fighting, said that at least 23 Palestinians were shot and killed by Hamas, which rules Gaza, while dozens more were arrested and tortured. Amnesty said those targeted were either political rivals of Hamas, including members of the Fatah party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, or people the militant group had accused of cooperating with Israel.

MSM Article Gushes Over Iran’s Acceptance Of Transgenders… Waits Until Last Sentence To Mention Homosexuality Is A Crime And Gays Are Executed…

Iran-Gays_Hanging

Just a minor detail.

Via AFP:

A bill that would provide better protection for transsexuals in Iran has been sent to researchers in parliament, the ISNA news agency quoted an official as saying on Tuesday.

Under a fatwa or religious decree by the Islamic republic’s founder Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iran recognises transsexuality.

Sex change operations are common, with part of the fees paid by the authorities.

“To better protect transsexuals, a draft bill on all aspects, judicial and religious, has been prepared and sent to parliament’s research centre, which is examining it,” said Farid Habibollah Masoudi, deputy head of the social affairs assistance department.

“Since 2002, 1,800 people have applied to our service,” he said, including 330 in the Iranian year that ended in March.

In Iran, once a person’s transsexuality has been confirmed by psychiatrists, the person in question is referred to the justice and forensic science departments.

“To prevent any problems because of their appearance, they are given a letter confirming their transsexuality so the police do not take action against them,” the official added.

Despite being very traditional, Iranian society accepts transsexuality. However, homosexuality is outlawed, with the death sentence handed down to reoffenders.

Catholic University Removes Statue Of Famous Priest Praying Over Americans Indians After Libs Complain It Represents “Racism And White Supremacy”…

slustatue

Another win for the diversity enforcers.

Via College Fix:

Saint Louis University has removed a statue on its campus depicting a famous Jesuit missionary priest praying over American Indians after a cohort of students and faculty continued to complain the sculpture symbolized white supremacy, racism and colonialism.

Formerly placed outside the university’s Fusz Hall in the center of the private Catholic university, the statue will go to the university’s art museum, a building just north of the bustling urban campus.

The statue features famous Jesuit Missionary Pierre-Jean De Smet S.J. praying over two American Indians dressed in traditional clothing. Last Monday, just two days after graduation, it was removed from the location it has called home on campus for decades.

A university spokesperson told St. Louis Magazine the statue will be placed within the “historical context of a collection that’s on permanent display in our SLU Museum of Art.” The statue is set for the museum’s “Collection of the Western Jesuit Missions.”

“In more recent years, there have been some faculty and staff who have raised questions about whether the sculpture is culturally sensitive,” SLU spokesman Clayton Berry said.

Berry did not respond to The College Fix’s request for comment.

The De Smet statue has long drawn the ire of progressive students and scholars at the Jesuit university who argue the statue was a symbol of racism and white supremacy, among other oppressions.

In a recent op-ed published in SLU’s University News, senior Ryan McKinley stated the sculpture sent a clear, unwelcoming message to American Indians at Saint Louis University.

Ramadi Fell To Islamic State Even Though Jihadist Fighters Were “Vastly Outnumbered” By Iraqi Troops…

Ramadi

Vastly reassuring…

Via ABC:

The city of Ramadi is controlled by “hundreds” of ISIS fighters who were able to seize the city after Iraqi military commanders ordered the withdrawal of several thousand Iraqi troops from the city.

That’s according to a U.S. official who also confirmed that the withdrawal of Iraqi troops from Ramadi may have been prompted by the unexplained pullout of the elite Iraqi counterterrorism force based in the city.

The pullout of the Iraqi counterterrorism unit from Ramadi first appeared in the Kurdish news agency Rudaw.

The departure of that elite unit led other Iraqi military commanders in the city to order the departure of their troops even though they held a significant numerical superiority, the U.S. official said.

Over the weekend, Defense Secretary Ash Carter criticized the “will to fight” of Iraqi forces in Ramadi because they withdrew from the city even though “they vastly outnumbered the opposing force.”

The motivations for the elite unit’s departure remain unknown, the U.S. official said, but it was another reason provided by American officials as to why thousands of Iraqi security forces left the city.

The motivations for the elite unit’s departure remain unknown, the U.S. official said, but it was another reason provided by American officials as to why thousands of Iraqi security forces left the city.

Taken together, it appears the fall of Ramadi was due to a domino effect of circumstances.

Officials said last week that ISIS fighters launched more than 30 car bombs inside Ramadi in an effort to take over the city where fighting has been raging for more than a year and a half.

The attacks came at the same time as a sandstorm that affected ground operations. The storm also led the Iraqi commander on the ground to mistakenly believe that the sandstorm would prevent coalition airstrikes from supporting his troops, according to U.S. officials. American officials have said that the deteriorating weather conditions would not have affected the ability to conduct airstrikes.

Shameless Lib Rag WaPo Promotes The “Evolution” Of “Forsaking Monogamy”…

Via Newsbusters:

Washington Post reporter Caitlin Dewey’s beat is the Internet. But her big piece on the front page of Wednesday’s Style section is about something broader: “Forsaking monogamy: The evolution of relationships has made affairs less clandestine and less combustive. And of course there are Web sites to help match tryst-seekers.”

This being the Post, there is no space for critics of the “evolution” of online adultery Web sites or their users. Dewey promoted the “non-monogamous dating site Open Minded,” where her married female subject, Jessie, advertised, “I’m into building deep and loving relationships that add to the joy and aliveness of being human.” She talked her husband into “ethical non-monogamy.”

The Post also used the term “monogamish,” the cutesy term of radical gay sex columnist Dan Savage to describe the married-but-cheating lifestyle.

The online headline was “Are new dating apps killing monogamy? Or has it always been dead?” Dewey pushed (B). Or monogamy is an old “agricultural” tradition that’s fading away in the modern age. Adultery is the new mainstream, according to Open Minded founder Brandon Wade:

Rahm Emanuel: Deaths And Massive Failures Of Chicago Gun Control Calls For…Even Stricter Gun Control…

rahm-emanuel-allows-unpunnished-gun-violence

Liberal logic 101.

Via Breitbart:

Following a Memorial Day Weekend during which 12 people shot and killed and 43 more were wounded, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said a large part of the solution to the problem is more gun control.

That’s right — gun control is failing miserably and the solution is more gun control.

Breitbart News previously reported that a shooting on Friday resulted in the injuries of 4-year-old girl, her 17-year-old cousin, and a 15-year-old bystander in West Englewood.

On Sunday two boys, a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old, were shot in the 4400 block of South Cottage Grove. The 15-year-old was killed. A 20-year-old was shot and killed in Humboldt Park and another man was shot and killed in East Garfield Park.

On Monday there were homicides at 2:30 pm, 5:25 pm, and 7:50 pm, and the list goes on.

Were the shooters in these instance law-abiding citizens? Negative. Yet Emanuel’s response is more gun control which only affects law-abiding citizens. For those who ignore the law, more gun control simply means more victims.

Islamic State Fighters Burn 80-Year-Old Iraqi Christian Woman To Death For Violating Sharia Law…

Savages.

(BasNews) – In a village 20 km south east of Mosul in northern Iraq, Islamic State (IS) militants have burned an Iraqi Christian woman to death.

Sa’ed Mamuzini, representative of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) office in Mosul, told BasNews on Tuesday that the militants burned the 80-year-old Iraqi Christian woman, who was from Kremlis in the Nimrud area of the Hamdaneya sub district, east of Mosul.

Mamuzini said that villagers told him that the woman was killed for failing to comply with the strict laws of the Islamic State.

This is the first instance of IS militants burning a person since the murder of an Jordanian pilot earlier this year.

Mosul and surrounding areas in northern Iraq have been under the control of Islamic State militants since June last year.

Or it could just be for attention.

Via Campus Reform:

In an effort to fight against perceived gender inequality and body shaming, male and female students at the University of California, San Diego gathered together Wednesday afternoon—completely topless.

More than 1,000 people RSVP’d to the event via a public Facebook page for the “Free the Nipple” event. The event description touted the sit-in as a “peaceful, laid-back, and safe environment.”

“Bring your curiosity, forget your shirts, and most importantly bring your love, compassion, and support for the cause,” the event description read. “Shirts, bra, tops – optional. Show up in whatever you feel comfortable with because it should be your choice!”

Women who chose to go completely topless for the sit-in were encouraged to do so as a collective group in order to “protect the safety of the individuals,” according to another flier posted to Facebook.

A Sudanese captive and his lawyers baked a Guantanamo guilty plea over chocolate chip cookies. Attorneys for a sickly Syrian hunger striker got him to sip juice while working on federal court strategy. Child soldier Omar Khadr passed through his adolescence behind the razor wire in Cuba chowing down on pizza and McDonald’s with his lawyers.

Now, a new rule going into effect Wednesday at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba forbids food at legal conferences for the first time in a decade — the prison says for health and safety reasons — to the consternation of lawyers who say breaking bread has been crucial to coexistence between American attorneys and their captive Guantanamo clients after years in legal limbo.

“It’s actually quite tragic for the clients. Sometimes the food we bring is the only thing from the outside world they’ve seen in months, and they really look forward to it,” said attorney Alka Pradhan, who has brought to meetings, after military inspection, everything from Egg McMuffins and traditional Middle East sweets to fresh fruit and granola bars.

—Defense attorneys also have routinely brought black seed, a home remedy for digestive issues, to meetings with Younis Chekkouri, a Moroccan who has been approved for release for at least five years.

—Lawyers for long-term hunger striker Abu Wa’el Dhiab, now in Uruguay, said they brought fruit juice to meetings that he would sometimes sip for strength at the height of his hunger strike.

Via Washington Examiner:

Anyone headed toward the final round of their Memorial Day cookout still has a chance to eat a healthy dessert, by making USDA-recommended strawberry s’mores.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s “MyPlate” service handed out…advice on Sunday, and said strawberry s’mores are a treat that “kids will love.”

But expectations for the kids might need to be set in advance, since these s’mores don’t have any chocolate or marshmallows in them.

Instead, USDA encourages people to plop some low-fat vanilla yogurt on a graham cracker, and then top the yogurt with strawberries. Top it off with another graham cracker, and you have a s’more that looks a lot like a regular s’more, except when you bite into it, you won’t get any ooey-gooey chocolate all over your fingers.

“Kids will love that they can make it themselves, and parents will love that it’s an inexpensive and healthy treat!” USDA said on its recipe page.

Egyptian Woman Arrested And Charged With “Inciting Debauchery” For Belly Dancing…

So risqué! No, not really.

Via ToI:

Egyptian authorities have arrested a woman who danced in a racy music video that went viral on the internet and referred her to misdemeanor court for “inciting debauchery.

The clip, a low-budget production entitled “Hands Off,” or “Sib Eddi” in Egyptian Arabic, contains no nudity but plenty of scantily clad booty-shaking by the woman, Reda el-Fouly, who dances to the voice of a singer called Mena.

Ahmed Bakly of the Giza prosecution said in a statement that the clip “disrupted morality.” He also ordered the arrest of Wael Elsedeki, whom he described as el-Fouly’s boyfriend who had left the country for Tunisia after some social media users called the video scandalous, as well as a third person involved in the video.

Egypt is one of several Islamic countries that enforce modest-dress laws in the Middle East. Last year, Qatar’s state-run Islamic Culture Center launched the “Reflect your Respect” campaign to encourage tourists to adhere to the country’s dress codes and to dress modestly.

Baltimore Residents Now Criticizing Police For Not ‘Doing Their Jobs’ As Violent Crime Shoots Up

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Via Breitbart:

Two Baltimore residents stated that they believed the police in the city are not doing their jobs in interviews broadcast on Tuesday’s “The Lead” on CNN.

Resident Malacka Reed El said, “I don’t think the police are doing their jobs, but I do not think that it’s all of the police. We do have some police officers that are doing their jobs.”

Rev. Jamal Bryant, (who National Correspondent Suzanne Malveaux said is “a close friend” of the Gray family) the Pastor of Empowerment Temple Church, added, “It’s almost akin to having a substitute teach in the middle of the semester who turns a blind eye, doesn’t know the students, and is not, in fact, giving a grade. And so it’s a very dangerous time in our city when crime is going up, but arrests are going down.”

Is This Even Possible?

Yeah, call me skeptical.
