Child bride ten years old
Fatwa: “Sexual intercourse with prepubescent girl is permissible.”
Al Muratjim is an educated man who works as a full-time Arabic translator during the day. During his time off he works exposing Islamic totalitarianism and intolerance by translating it from Arabic into English.
His Translating Jihad blog illustrates the difference between how Muslims talk about Islam to each other every day in the Muslim world’s mainstream media and how Muslim spokesmen and apologists in the West talk about Islam. As we’ve recently seen in Barbados, when any member of Islamic community lets the truth slip, the apologists are ready and willing to help.
Thanks to the efforts of Al Murajim and others like him, with increasing frequency we are seeing Muslim spokesmen in the West being held to account for talking out of both sides of their mouths (the Ground Zero Mosque imam is the latest to be exposed by his own words).
In the West we are often told that child marriage is a cultural issue having nothing to do with the religion of Islam.
Yup, that’s what they say in the West in English, but in Arabic it’s another story… Continue reading
Week-after-week, the Opposition Barbados Labour Party appears to be ending up with egg on its face. It is as if, having reviewed its leadership, you would now be well advised to talk what that party is saying with a pinch of salt.
Let’s start with the By-election. For almost 21 days, the BLP went across the length and breadth of St. John, trying to pull down Mara Thompson while telling the people to find her “unacceptable” because, in the BLP’s view, she is an “affront” to Barbadians.
It therefore came as a real shock to Barbadians when on the morning she was being seated in Parliament, the very person who told the people of St. John that they must find her “unacceptable” and an “affront,” told the Parliament of Barbados that he wanted to extend his most sincere welcome to her, as a new member of the House of Assembly. It is this level of political hypocrisy why people are joining the cause for a new politics in Barbados.
“You ain’t have no shame at all…” Continue reading
“Just happened to pick up the camera…”
Okay, we know it’s not a fish, but we couldn’t resist the play on words considering this is a Bajan blog and all that. Click on the photo and you’ll be taken to the Daily Telegraph to see the large photo and read how Matt Deans took this one in a million shot.

Tourism MATTERS – Which type of person finds Barbados particularly appealing?
by Adrian Loveridge - Small hotel owner
One or two people have questioned my recent shortlist of potential new gateways for additional airlift, so it may help to better articulate the reasons behind the suggestions.
Let’s start with Ottawa. Yes! Of course it has a smaller population (metro area around 1.4 million) than Toronto, but its boasts the highest median family income of Canada’s six largest cities. You also have to look at its employment structure. 18.9 percent of the workforce is currently employed in high tech, closely followed by 18.2 per cent by Federal Government, 10.4 per cent in finance, insurance and real estate with the next highest percentage, 9.4 in trade.
So the demographics fit our product.
Hopefully our tourism policymakers carefully track exactly where our visitors originate from, behind the current gateways and if for any reason they do not, I am sure the airlines could provide this information. This would give at least some indication of potential demand for a non-stop service. Continue reading
Latest from Barbados Underground: “Truth’s time-bombs scientifically scheduled to EXPLODE in the African mind”
“Psychological Race Desertion and the Mental Anatomy of Negro Domestication”
My friends, it’s been a long time since we linked to any article at Barbados Underground blog. Our readers know that this is because of Barbados Underground’s policy of allowing the most racist and violent comments and articles to be posted.

A few weeks ago we waited in vain for Simon Cowell to show for our invitation to buy him dinner and a beer at Marcia’s Place. Simon’s loss because it was a great time that night at Marcia’s. Always is! See you there this Friday night, and yup, we mean it. 🙂
