Devout Muslim terrorist attack on Canadian Parliament – is Barbados as vulnerable?

Barbados Parliament

by Nevermind Kurt

by Nevermind Kurt

Early Wednesday morning a Canadian devout Muslim named Michael Zehaf-Bibeau murdered an unarmed soldier standing guard at the war memorial in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa. Zehaf-Bibeau then stormed Parliament with a firearm where thirty or forty shots were fired between the terrorist and security personnel. The Sergeant at Arms, an older gentleman in a largely ceremonial position, shot and killed the Muslim terrorist with a pistol.

Initial news reports claimed that the terrorist was a ‘recent convert’, but it is now emerging that Zehaf-Bibeau had been a Muslim for years and may also hold Libyan citizenship. Police say his father is an immigrant to Canada from Libya, who returned to his native country in 2011 to wage Jihad war.

You can clearly hear the terrorist shouting “Allah Akbar” in a video made during the shooting inside Parliament.

The attack came only two days after a Jihad attack in Quebec where another devout Muslim ran down two Canadian soldiers in a shopping mall parking lot. One soldier died in that attack and the Muslim terrorist was shot to death after crashing his car and coming at police with a knife.

Barbados not immune to Sudden Jihad Syndrome

Muslim Violence: How a 20% minority can enforce its will on the majority

Merry Christmas from a minority...

Merry Christmas from a minority…

The Editor
Barbados Free Press
Grape Hall, Barbados

Dear Sir/Madam

At present, there is a discourse on Muslims in Barbados. The following article is submitted in the hope that Barbadians would analyze things for themselves and do some reading and research.

Eighty percent of the population of the Central African Republic is Christian. The other twenty percent is ostensibly Muslim – ostensibly because part of the Muslim population is non-native (illegal from Chad and so on).

In the past both Christians and Muslims lived in harmony. The Muslim rebel commander, Mr. Djotodia, in the past sought funding from the “Organization of the Islamic Conference”(OIC) in Saudi Arabia in 2012 to establish a separate country.

According to the “ Wall street Journal” of 21-23 March 2014, Djotodia in a letter to OIC in 2012 stated:

“We are going to transform a part of the CAR…into an Islamic republic. We are going to put into place an Islamic regime that will apply Sharia”.

This is exactly what Djotodia did. He started a coup with the aid of Chad (a Muslim country), which overthrew the government. Once in power, he burnt down churches and enforced sharia law.

How can a minority of less than twenty percent of a population try to enforce its will on the majority? That is exactly what the Muslims in the CAR did. In Muslim majority countries, non-Muslims have to toe the line, they have no right, one only has to look at Pakistan.

Stolen Baby reminds us of the Barbados stem-cell scandal

Back in 2006, Barbados Free Press wrote…

This is a story about murder, international organ trafficking and children disappearing from Eastern European orphanages. There is a Barbados connection.

“The Government Of Barbados under Prime Minister Owen Arthur has allowed Barbados to become a world destination for trafficking in body parts – an industry that is known to involve organized crime, paying poor Ukrainian women to become pregnant and then aborting… and where there is now evidence of kidnapping and murder of newly born live, healthy babies.”

… from the BFP story: Healthy Ukrainian Newborns Murdered For Body Parts – Destination Barbados Clinic

Former PM Owen Arthur

Then BLP PM Owen Arthur made Barbados a destination for human body parts from aborted/murdered babies.

The Institute For Regenerative Medicine left Barbados after the story broke, and Owen Arthur and his government were just happy to let the whole thing drop. Owen $ Arthur never did tell us how much the BLP received from the stem cell clinic in political donations“.

Today Barbados Free Press received the following article from a father who is desperate to find his now adult son who was kidnapped as a newborn baby from an Iranian hospital in 1984. We pray that Fadil Hashmi will find his son someday, but our Bajan experience with the Institute for Regenerative Medicine makes us fear that Mr. Hashmi’s son might not be alive.

There are so many evil people in this world – and it brought shame upon our nation when Prime Minister Owen Arthur and the Barbados Labour Party aligned themselves with such an evil enterprise as the Institute for Regenerative Medicine.

Here is the sad story from Fadil Hashmi…

“They said they buried my newborn son 30 years ago, but he is still alive somewhere.”

by Fadil Hashmi

I am Fadil Hashmi, and I work as an engineer in UAE. I am trying to uncover the truth of kidnapping my son for some 20 years.

Our son was born healthy in an Iranian Hospital in 1984. Three days later I was told that my son was dead. Six years ago I opened his grave, but did not find my son’s body.

December 24, 1984, I and my wife were living in Iran-my wife home country. When she went into labour, I took her to Sajjad Hospital in Tehran, where she delivered a healthy baby, according to medical reports. We choose name Mohammad for our son, but it was not made official on any documents.

After the delivery the baby was taken away and kept on a different floor at the hospital. My son was not given to his mother for feeding. My wife was discharged the same day and we were advised to keep the baby in the hospital for a few days.  Continue reading

Muslim-only housing development in Barbados. No Christians or Jews allowed to purchase homes in new community.

Muslim Barbados housing

Muslim Association says “Barbadians have nothing to fear.” (What a statement!)

Is this what we want for our Barbados?

It's not a real sign, but it might as well be!

It’s not a real sign, but it might as well be!

One can only imagine the howls of outrage if a construction company announced that only Christians would be allowed to purchase new homes in a brand new Bajan subdivision… and rightly so. Can you imagine on a sign “No Muslim Buyers Allowed” ???

Yet this is exactly what our political class has agreed to in relation to Bajan Christians and Jews when it issued building permissions to the Muslim organisations involved in building Barbados’ newest housing development.

After hundreds of years of slavery, and then another hundred years of colonisation, exclusion and segregation based upon race, skin colour and class, ordinary Barbadians do not take kindly to being told they are not eligible to purchase a home because they are not of the proper religion. Bajans do not like being told that they are second class citizens in their own country.

The message from the Muslim spokespersons that “Barbadians have nothing to fear” is a statement that these people consider themselves to be outside of the wide and inclusive Barbados citizenship and community. Is this what we want for our Barbados?

Muslims wish to self-enclave, to not be part of the wider Bajan community

Muslim schools in Barbados teach our young people that “Hijab is compulsory… hide woman’s beauty as protection from rape” and “Beheading, chopping off your hands, severe beatings are Islamic rules, nothing wrong in it” (See BFP’s article about the Muslim Girls School.)

There can be no debate that these Islamic values and teachings are anti-Bajan, and destructive to our national character. They are against everything that this country stands for. Muslim teaching about the value of women is stuck somewhere before the dark-ages, but for some reason liberals excuse the fact that the Koran not only allows, but instructs, husbands to physically discipline their wives.

Yet, our so-called political leadership has agreed to allow the establishment of a community that excludes ordinary Bajans and upholds values that are foreign and destructive to our nation.

This is a dangerous precedent that weakens Barbados and undermines everything we have struggled for in the past 150 years. By all means, let people believe what they want to believe no matter how vile or outrageous. Freedom and democracy demands tolerance. But we draw the line when our government gives approval and support to an exclusionary enclave based upon religion and values that are in total opposition to the Bajan culture and national character.

I wonder: what would Bussa think of this?

From The Nation newspaper. We have to reprint it all because that newspaper has a habit of revising history:

HOUSING VENTURE

A new community exclusively for Muslims has been started at Clermont, St James.  Continue reading

Barbados prisoner John Lepp on hunger strike – held for 3 years without trial. Has lost 70 pounds since arrest.

Barbados Free Press received the following from a relative of John Lepp. We researched online and found a Barbados court docket from 2011 for Mr. Lepp. That’s all we know.

Here is the message as we received it…

WRONGFULLY IMPRISONED MAN ON REMAND FOR 42 MONTHS WITHOUT TRIAL NOW ON HUNGER STRIKE AT HM DODDS PRISON, BARBADOS.

Mr John Lepp has been imprisoned wrongfully within Barbados’ HM Dodds Prison for three and a half years, held on remand without a fair trial. He has now sanctioned a hunger strike, drinking only water until his case is heard fairly and he is released from the hell he was so wrongfully endured.

The conditions he has been living in are appalling, so much so that Mr John Lepp relates it to ‘living like dogs’. These conditions are described as being worse than the convicted criminals who are actually serving time. Whilst held on remand he has been fed a malnourished diet of bread and water everyday for three and a half years. The results of this underfeeding can be seen in the 70lbs he has lost since being taken into custody in 2011. This is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE.

Mr John Lepp is serious and vowing on all grounds that he will see the hunger strike through until the end in a fight for his human rights with the hope of achieving a fair trial. Much like the Raul Garcia case, John Lepp will not stop and will put his life on the line in order to bring his awful, appalling and utterly inhumane treatment to an end.

It seems that those who are left on remand are stripped entirely of their human rights and merely forgotten about. Thus it is now clear that Mr John Lepp’s voice may only be heard through the extremity of a hunger strike.

THIS MUST BE STOPPED.

Barbados government okays Communist Party of China to educate young Barbadians

china-barbados-flag-sm

Barbados’ Minister of Education Ronald Jones gushed with fawning excitement at the unveiling of a plaque to announce that the Communist Party of China will now be teaching our young people their version of China’s history, foreign affairs and human rights. Press release here

China’s Ambassador to Barbados, Wang Ke, was smiling too because he knows that the Chinese Communist Party’s access to our Bajan youth will be on an exclusive basis – with no opposition or human rights groups allowed to spoil the party at the new Confucius Institute to be established at UWI’s Cave Hill Campus.

Teaching adherence to the Chinese Communist party line is a basic requirement by the ChiComs if Barbados is to receive the construction funds and ongoing operational costs from China.

China has built hundreds of these institutions all over the world, that according to various news stories, act as propaganda and espionage centres for the communists.

Don’t expect too many discussions about Tibet, China’s harvesting of organs from executed political prisoners, China’s slave camp system, new African colonialism or government persecution of Christians.

Just take that money and run!

Because… when you’re broke and begging you have no independence left at all.

from Wikipedia Criticisms of Confucius Institutes

“The Confucius Institute (CI) program, which began establishing centers for Chinese language instruction in 2004, has been the subject of criticisms, concerns, and controversies during its international expansion.

Many such concerns stem from the CI’s relationship to Chinese Communist Party authorities, giving rise to criticisms about undermining academic freedom at host universities, engaging in industrial and military espionage, surveillance of Chinese students abroad, and attempts to advance the single-party state Chinese government’s political agendas on controversial issues such as Tibet and Taiwan. Additional concerns have arisen over the institutes’ financial and academic viability, teaching quality, and relations with Chinese partner universities.

Confucius Institutes have defended their establishments, comparing them with other cultural promotion organizations such as Alliance française and Goethe-Institut. However, unlike the Alliance francaise or Goethe-Institut, Confucius Institutes are managed by the Chinese government and operate directly on university campuses, thus giving rise to unique concerns related to academic freedom and political influence. Some observers have noted that CIs are largely limited to teaching cultural and language programs, and the institutes’ staff tend to self-censor with regards to political and controversial subjects as human rights and democracy.”

Caribbean Governments must remove laws criminalizing homosexuallity

“Public health academia has known for decades that to effectively curb the global crisis of HIV/AIDS we have to remove institutionalized oppression that re-enforces homophobia. It is not a panacea but it is a major part of the solution…

Twelve of the fifteen CARICOM member states still criminalize homosexuality…

Harassment, silence, intimidation and homophobic laws are a major hindrance on the efficacy of HIV outreach and prevention. It compromises the fight against HIV and AIDS.”

by Sean Macleish for Barbados Free Press

The Caribbean is second in the world to Sub-Saharan Africa in the rate of HIV infection. The primary mode of transmission in the region is heterosexual intercourse with high risk groups to include men who have sex with men (MSM) and there is intersection between the two.

Public health academia has known for decades that to effectively curb the global crisis of HIV/AIDS we have to remove institutionalized oppression that re-enforces homophobia. It is not a panacea but it is a major part of the solution.

Countries that criminalize homosexuality marginalize MSM which pushes them underground and helps to fuel the HIV epidemic. Treating people with dignity and respect facilitates effective HIV education and prevention. It reduces the discrimination many Caribbean Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender experience when accessing health services. Studies and the resulting data have consistently demonstrated that homophobia contributes to higher HIV infection rates and that internalized homophobia also increases your risk of HIV infection.

People who place a high discount rate on their lives tend to participate in higher risk behaviours. The decriminalization of homosexuality to reduce the global crisis of HIV/AIDS is a policy endorsed by the United Nations, World Health Organization, Pan American Health Organization, and many non-governmental organizations. This is the consensual public health approach. Twelve of the fifteen CARICOM member states still criminalize homosexuality as of date.
