“Qatar is a slave state in the 21st Century…”
“I am trapped here. The main office will not give me back my passport…”
“How many people are going to have to die so that this World Cup can take place?”
The Guardian: Qatar’s World Cup Slaves
“The evidence uncovered by the Guardian is clear proof of the use of systematic forced labour in Qatar. In fact, these working conditions and the astonishing number of deaths of vulnerable workers go beyond forced labour to the slavery of old where human beings were treated as objects.
There is no longer a risk that the World Cup might be built on forced labour. It is already happening.”
Aidan McQuade, director of Anti-Slavery International
UPDATED: Jailed rape victim forced to marry her attacker
Where is the outrage? Where are the women’s rights advocates? Why to they flee when the story is one of Islam once again brutalizing women?
KABUL—Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday pardoned an Afghan woman serving a 12-year prison sentence for having sex out of wedlock after she was raped by a relative.
Karzai’s office said in a statement that the woman and her attacker have agreed to marry. That would reverse an earlier decision by the 19-year-old woman, who had previously refused a judge’s offer of freedom if she agreed to marry the rapist.
Islamic Barbarians sentence rape victim to 12 years in jail
Sharia? Islamic values and standards? Just say, “No thanks!”
Get one thing straight before you read this story, friends – there is nothing unusual here, for the vast majority of women imprisoned in Afghanistan and other Muslim countries are victims. It’s the same in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and everywhere else where Islamic laws and standards are the basis of society.
Under Islamic law and culture, it is the duty of the women prevent rape and adultery by covering themselves and never going about alone. Young Bajan students are taught this in our Al-Falah Islamic School. You don’t have to believe us on this, just listen to the young Bajan Muslim women repeating this warped concept for themselves.

If rape happens, it is the fault of the woman. – Continue reading
If not for freedom, someone please remind me why British troops are fighting in Afghanistan.
by Nevermind Kurt
Please remind me why the West is spending billions and billions of dollars and the lives of thousands of our young if not to free Afghans. Please explain how the West can continue to pump money and lives into that dark hole and allow these kinds of human rights abuses under the authority of an Afghanistan government that the West put in place.
Please tell me what the definition of “victory” is. Please tell me when the war in Afghanistan will be won, or lost. At this point, I almost don’t give a damn. Let the savages have at each other. If they overstep their border or attack the west, nuke ’em. If someone has a better plan, please let me know!
“According to Westerners closely following his case in Kabul, Sayed Mossa is likely to be charged with espionage and with conversion to Christianity, or apostasy—crimes that may be punishable by death under Islamic law. The court session may be televised, officials have said, and it is likely that Mossa will be asked to renounce his faith.
Mossa was arrested in late May 2010 as part of a crackdown against Afghan converts to Christianity that followed a television broadcast of several baptisms. He has been held in a prison in Kabul under worsening conditions and has been subjected to daily beatings, torture, and sexual abuse. Court-appointed legal counsel, all Muslims, have refused to take his case because he is considered an apostate. Officials from the International Committee on the Red Cross, where Mossa worked for 15 years, visited him twice, and he has received other Western visitors, including representatives from the U.S. embassy. They confirmed that Mossa had been tortured and successfully pressured the Afghan government to move him to another prison, away from other prisoners. That took place Oct. 29, 2010…”

Mother of two “insulted Muhammad” by asking what Muhammad had done for women
“Some of the women workers had reportedly been pressuring Bibi to renounce her Christian faith and accept Islam. During one discussion, Bibi responded by speaking of how Jesus had died on the cross for the sins of humanity and asking the Muslim women what Muhammad had done for them.”
Asia Bibi, 37 years old, is sentenced to be executed under the Pakistan Penal Code. The law imposes life in prison for defiling the Qur’an and death for insulting the person who Muslims say is their prophet, Muhammad.
There are only about 2.8 million Christians left in Pakistan. As with all countries where Muslims are in the majority, other religions are slowly but surely stamped out through a combination of the imposition of Islamic law, lack of human rights protection by government and Muslim violence.
According to what I’ve read, that is the way it is everywhere there is a Muslim majority.
If any of our readers are aware of a Muslim majority country where people of other religions are not persecuted, I’m all ears. What do our Muslim readers think about this death sentence? Should people have freedom of speech to criticize Islam or the Muslim prophet called Muhammed?
