Andorinha árabe de hoje (2)

A andorinha de hoje voa de modo a não deixar dúvidas ao mais inexperiente augure: a Tunísia vai ter um governo de tendência teocrática, apostado em dar o seu contributo para a eliminação de Israel.
Que brisa tão fresca.

New Tunisian PM: "The liberation of Jerusalem starts here. I will be the sixth righteous caliph."

The English in this report is marginal, but the import is clear. The Righteous or Rightly Guided Caliphs were, according to Islamic tradition, the first four successors of Muhammad: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali Ibn Abi Talib. Then some add Hasan, Ali's son, or Umar II, who came slightly later. And Hamadi Jebali is apparently planning to be the sixth.

"Tunisia's new Prime minisiter's [sic]: "I am a Rightous Caliph, I see Signs from God." !!!," from All Voices, November 13
In a popular meeting in Sousse today, Hamadi Jebali of Enahdha party, certainly tunisian [sic] next prime minister in Tunisia, has announced that he and his party will be "the 6 th islamic Rightly Guided Caliphs", promising also that this tunisian [sic] Caliphate will, enlighten the worrld [sic], as did the Jasmine revolution!

The term Caliphate refers to the first system of government established in Islam and represented the political unity of the Muslim Ummah (community). Its head is the Caliph, a monarch, usually chosen among pious imams.

He also promised that Jerusalem will be freed from jewish [sic] occupation. The liberation process will start from the tunisian [sic] Caliphate! pointing [sic] to a palestenian [sic] guest woman present in the meeting: "our sister's presence is a divine sign from God. The liberation of jerusalem starts here. I will be the 6th Rightous [sic] Caliph"...

Egypt: Islamic supremacist presidential candidate vows to arrest bikini-wearing women if elected

Sharia Alert from Egypt: "Egyptian women fret as 'modesty' becomes election issue," by Joseph Mayton for The Media Line, November 14:
[...] And, freed from the strictures of the Mubarak era, politicians are pushing forward on an Islamic agenda.

“It’s so frustrating,” says Marwa, who told The Media Line that she wears the veil in part because her mother wants it and partly out of the conviction that “it was the right thing to do.” But at the same time she is critical of politicians “who would dare tell a woman what is appropriate. That is un-Islamic.”

The two are typical young Egyptian women, who participated in the January and February uprising that forced out president Hosni Mubarak and put the country on the path toward democracy. But with elections just two weeks away, they are lamenting how women are being left out of the dialogue and discussion of the future of the country.

“We were at the front of the protests, getting beaten and supporting the future of Egypt,” recalls Heba. But now, she says, “Women are not being heard from and this is causing a lot of frustration among myself and my friends who want the ability to choose our lives and what we do.”...

The controversy over the status of women in post-Mubarak Egypt came to a head at the start of November after Hazem Saleh Abu Ismail, a leading presidential candidate and Muslim cleric, gave two television interviews in which he outlined an Islamic future for the country that would impose Saudi Arabian-style dress and behavior on the public.

In an interview on the 90 Minutes television program, Abu Ismail said he supported what he called “Islamic dress” for women, meaning the hijab, or veil. Asked about what would happen to a woman wearing a bikini on the beach, he responded, “she would be arrested.”

Days later, he went on the Biladna Bil Masr program and lashed out at the show’s popular TV host, Reem Maged, and all other unveiled women in the country. He declared al-tabarouj (the failure to cover one’s hair and of wearing makeup) a “mortal sin” and said he would make such actions “criminal,” citing his interpretation of Islamic law.

He told Maged he wouldn’t have agreed to the interview at all because of her dress but said that in politics “things are different” and he has to meet with people from all walks of life. To underscore his point, a Facebook-based Salafist news outlet re-aired the interview with Maged’s head and face covered by a dark filter to “veil” her.

“I desire for you what I desire for my sister, and I admire your courage during the January revolution and I wish the next time we meet, things will be different,” Abu Ismail told his host inviting her to cover her hair....

In nearby Tunisia, which like Egypt has a largely secular elite, the moderately Islamist Ennahda Party won more than 40% of the vote for a constituent assembly last month, making it the dominant power in the country’s emerging democracy. In Egypt, 67% of those polled by the Pew Global Attitudes Project last April said the country’s laws should strictly follow the Quran's teachings. Another 27% said that they should follow the values and principles of Islam....

If elected, Abu Ismail has promised to apply Islamic law to other realms of Egyptians life, which would mean closing down casinos, outlawing the drinking alcohol in public, forcing Copts to pay a special tax for not converting, and punishing women who would wear “immodest” clothes.

That special tax would be the jizya, which the Qur'an says that dhimmis must pay "with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued" (9:29).

For now, it is an uphill battle against the conservatism that has risen in Egypt since July, when the Salafists – those who adhere to what they call a literal interpretation of the Qur’an – converged on Cairo’s Tahrir Square in the hundreds of thousands, demanding an Islamic state for Egypt. Women saw this as the beginning of the struggle for their rights.

For Marwa, Heba and other women in the country, it is a fight for women’s rights. “We must stand against this sort of thing, whether we are veiled or not,” says Heba, “because freedom of choice is important for Egypt’s future.”

"Progresso", ao estilo da "Primavera" Árabe

Mulheres egípcias, tratadas como camelos.

The above picture, taken at a recent protest in Egypt, has been making the rounds on various Arabic websites. Note the rope around the women, herding them like camels; note the man to the right holding the leash, walking them. I am told this is a common “precautionary measure” to keep women from mixing with men during protests.
Considering that certain Islamic texts describe females as “she-camels in heat,” or that it is traditional for some men to divorce their wives by saying “you are given free rein and unloosed like that camel,” or that Muslims are thought to have a mind-frame rooted in sand, camels, and ropes—this measure must surely seem natural.
At any rate, to those who think that history must always progress, take note: fifty years ago, the overwhelming majority of women in Egypt wore dresses, hair uncovered, and would never have condescended to being walked on a leash.
Such is “progress”—“Arab Spring” style.

Mais elementos em defesa de Pio XII

El Venerable Papa Pío XII no solo ayudó a salvar a casi 900 mil judíos durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial sino que también él mismo y en persona ayudó a varios de ellos en la ciudad de Roma, según afirma un experto historiador judío.
Hace poco Gary Krupp conoció el relato de una judía cuya familia fue rescatada gracias a la intervención directa del Vaticano. "Hay una carta inusual, escrita por una mujer que aún vive en el norte de Italia, quien dijo que participó con su madre, su tía y otros parientes en una audiencia con Pío XII en 1947".

Junto a Pío XII estaba su Secretario de Estado, el entonces Mons. Giovanni Montini, que sería luego el Papa Pablo VI.

Reconocidos por una mujer judía
"Su tía miró al Papa y dijo: ‘usted estaba vestido como franciscano’, y miró a Montini quien estaba a su costado y le dijo ‘y usted como un sacerdote común. Me sacaron del gueto y me llevaron al Vaticano’. Montini le dijo inmediatamente: ‘silencio, no repitan esta historia".

Krupp cree que estas afirmaciones son ciertas porque están en la línea del carácter de Pío XII quien "necesitaba ver con sus propios ojos cómo eran las cosas".

"Solía salir en su carro a zonas bombardeadas de Roma, y ciertamente no tenía miedo. De la misma forma lo puedo ver entrando al gueto para ver lo que estaba sucediendo", afirma el experto historiador.
Pave de Way Foundation
Krupp y su esposa Meredith son los fundadores de la Pave the Way Foundation iniciada en 2002 para "identificar y eliminar los obstáculos no teológicos entre las religiones". En 2006 líderes católicos y judíos le solicitaron investigar el "escollo" de la reputación del Papa Pío XII durante la guerra. Con este descubrimiento, Wall, un neoyorkino de 64 años cree que finalmente ha logrado un gran avance.

Judíos que defienden a Pío XII
"Somos judíos. Crecimos odiando el nombre de Pío XII. Creíamos que era antisemita, creíamos que era un colaborador de los nazis, todas las cosas que se dicen de él, las creíamos".

Krupp está de acuerdo con las conclusiones de otro historiador judío y diplomático israelí, Pinchas Lapide, quien afirma que las acciones del Papa Pío XII y del Vaticano permitieron salvar a aproximadamente 897 mil judíos durante la guerra.

Pave the Way tiene unas 46 mil páginas de documentación histórica que sostiene esta afirmación, que ahora ofrecen en su sitio web junto a numerosas entrevistas con testigos presenciales e historiadores.

"Creo que es una responsabilidad moral, esto no tiene nada que ver con la Iglesia Católica. Sólo tiene que ver con la responsabilidad judía de reconocer a un hombre que en realidad salvó a un enorme número de judíos en todo el mundo mientras estaba rodeado de fuerzas hostiles, infiltrado por espías y bajo amenaza de muerte".

Krupp explicó que una de las formas de esta ayuda se dio a través de la red de nunciaturas apostólicas en todo el mundo con las que se sacaba a los judíos perseguidos en Europa. Por ejemplo, entre 1939 y 1945 el Vaticano solicitó 800 visas para entrar a la República Dominicana. Esta acción y otras similares permitieron salvar a más de 11 mil judíos solo de esa forma.
Conspiración de la KGB
Pave the Way también tiene evidencia que demuestra que la reputación que manejan los enemigos de la Iglesia sobre el Papa Pío XII nace como una conspiración de la KGB rusa. Un exoficial de esta institución, Ion Mihai Pacepa, precisa que todo fue complot soviético.

Krupp precisa que los comunistas querían "desacreditar al Papa luego de su muerte, para destruir la reputación de la Iglesia Católica y, más importante para nosotros, para aislar a los judíos de los católicos. Tuvieron éxito en esas tres áreas".

En su opinión todo esto está cambiando ahora. Cuando lo escuchan hablar, dice Krupp, "muchos judíos han estado extremadamente agradecidos. ‘Me siento feliz de escuchar eso. Nunca quise creer esto de él (Pío XII), especialmente los que lo conocimos".

Egipto: cristão morto por não ocultar crucifixo

Egypt: Christian student murdered for refusing to remove crucifix

Ayman Nabil Labib, a 17-year-old Coptic Christian student, was murdered by Muslim classmates after refusing to remove a crucifix he was wearing, the Assyrian International News Agency is reporting.

The murder, which took place on October 16 in the central Egyptian town of Mallawi, took place after a teacher asked Labib to cover up a tattooed cross on his wrist. Labib refused, instead uncovering a cross necklace.

“The teacher nearly choked my son, and some Muslim students joined in the beating,” said Labib’s father.

“They beat my son so much in the classroom that he fled to the lavatory on the ground floor, but they followed him and continued their assault,” the victim’s mother added. “When one of the supervisors took him to his room, Ayman was still breathing. The ambulance transported him from there dead, one hour later.”

Le siège parisien de Charlie Hebdo incendié

VIDEO Le siège parisien de l'hebdomadaire satirique Charlie Hebdo a été la cible de cocktails molotovs dans la nuit de mardi à mercredi.
Le bâtiment de l'hebdomadaire français a partiellement brulé, a confirmé Charb, le directeur de la publication du journal à Europe 1.

Le journal satirique sortira ce mercredi une édition spéciale relative à la la victoire du parti islamiste Ennahda en Tunisie et la promesse du CNT d'utiliser la Charria comme source de législation en Libye. Mahomet, en plus d'être illustré en Une de "Charria Hebdo", en sera le rédacteur en chef fictif.

L'incendie, qui s'est déclenché "aux alentours de 01H00 du matin", est "maîtrisé et n'a fait aucun blessé", a-t-on indiqué de source policière. "Il n'y a pas d'interpellation", a-t-on ajouté, tout en évoquant un jet de "cocktail molotov" pour expliquer l'origine de l'incendie. "L'enquête devra le confirmer", a-t-on souligné.

Selon le médecin urgentiste et chroniqueur Patrick Pelloux, joint sur place par l'AFP, le cocktail molotov aurait été lancé "sur la devanture et aurait mis le feu au système informatique".

"Tout est détruit", a témoigné M. Pelloux. "Le poste de maquette a brûlé et il y a de la suie partout, le système électrique a fondu", a précisé le directeur de la publication, le dessinateur Charb, également joint sur place par l'AFP.

"Sur Twitter, sur Facebook, on a reçu pas mal de lettres de protestation, de menaces, d'insultes", que la direction du journal s'apprêtait à transmettre à la police, a-t-il expliqué.

Par ailleurs, le site internet du journal a été hacké; un message, en anglais et en turc, dénonce l'utilisation de l'image du prophète Mahomet.

Avec un titre de Une que l'on savait, comme à son habitude, provocateur ("100 coups de fouet, si vous n'êtes pas morts de rire !"), "Charia Ebdo" n'a pas manqué de susciter de vives réactions, avant même sa parution.

"On se demande ce qu'il faut faire pour ne pas indigner", avait réagi Charb, dessinateur et directeur de la publication de Charlie Hebdo, sité par Le Monde. "On n'a pas l'impression d'avoir fait une provocation supplémentaire. On a l'impression simplement de faire notre boulot comme d'habitude. La seule différence cette semaine, c'est que Mahomet est en couverture et que c'est assez rare de le mettre en couverture", a-t-il ajouté.

La police judiciaire de Paris a été saisie de l'enquête.

Le journal satirique s'est défendu de mettre de l'huile sur le feu. Il avait par ailleurs, en 2006, comparu devant la justice pour répondre à la parution des caricatures de Mahomet. Il avait cependant été relaxé. Ces parutions, en provenance du journal danois, avaient déclenché de violentes réactions dans les communautés musulmanes.

En solidarité avec Charlie Hedbo, le Nouvel Observateur a remplacé ses visuels facebook et Twitter par la Une du journal satirique. Ironiquement (?), Libération a invité la rédaction de ce dernier à les rejoindre temporairement. "On se serrera", dit la rédaction sur son compte Twitter !

Selon des journalistes de la rédaction du Nouvel Obs, des kiosquiers à Paris refuseraient de vendre l'édition du jour de Charlie hebdo.

France: Muslims firebomb satirical magazine that featured Muhammad as "guest editor"

CharlieHebdoMuhammad.jpgFirebomb if you don't find this funny

How long is the West going to put up with this? There are two choices: stand up for the freedom of speech and prosecute the Islamic thugs who are trying to destroy it, either by violent or non-violent means; or surrender, and place Islam and Muslims beyond criticism, in which case their jihad and the spread of Sharia in the West will advance unimpeded.

"Satirical Magazine Is Firebombed in Paris," by David Jolly for the New York Times, November 2 (thanks to all who sent this in):

PARIS — The office of a French satirical magazine here was badly damaged by a firebomb early on Wednesday, the publisher said, after it published a spoof issue “guest edited” by the Prophet Muhammad to salute the victory of an Islamist party in Tunisian elections. The publication also said hackers disrupted its Web site.

The magazine, Charlie Hebdo, had announced a special issue for publication Wednesday, renamed “Charia Hebdo,” a play on the word in French for Shariah law.

The magazine’s publisher, who goes by the name of Charb, told Europe 1 radio that the police had called just before 5 a.m. to report a fire of criminal origin. News reports said that a Molotov cocktail was thrown through a window. The special edition was on its way to the newsstands, Charb said, and will appear as scheduled.

But, he added, “We are homeless and we have no way to put out the magazine. We hope this won’t be the last issue.”

“We can’t put out the magazine under these conditions,” he said. “The stocks are burned, smoke is everywhere, the paste-up board is unusable, everything is melted, there’s no more electricity.”

The magazine’s Web site was hacked earlier, but appeared to have been restored by early Wednesday.

Caustically ironic and vulgar, Charlie Hebdo prides itself on being offensive to virtually everyone. It has drawn the ire of Muslim activists before, including in 2006, after it republished cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that first appeared in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten.

Outside the magazine’s office, there were still traces of smoke, with huge piles of half-burned copies of the magazine heaped on the sidewalk. Inside, the office was darkened from smoke and melted computers spoke to the seriousness of the damage.
