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?

The Row of Lamps
“In each legend, myth and story of Deepawali lies the significance of the victory of good over evil; and it is with each Deepawali and the lights that illuminate our homes and hearts, that this simple truth finds new reason and hope. From darkness unto light — the light that empowers us to commit ourselves to good deeds, that which brings us closer to divinity.”
… from the Wikipedia article Diwali
“In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.”
In recognition of the true meaning of Diwali, I offer to my friends the quotes above and below from author Ayn Rand…
“The truly and deliberately evil men are a very small minority; it is the appeaser who unleashes them on mankind; it is the appeaser’s intellectual abdication that invites them to take over. When a culture’s dominant trend is geared to irrationality, the thugs win over the appeasers…”
Strange Scientology beliefs: Galactic confederacy and humans possessed by the ghosts of aliens
There are a series of “motivational” commercials now being played before the standard ads and trailers at Olympus Cinemas.
These commercials have high production quality but are relatively corny with themes that at first seem biblical (don’t be promiscuous, honour your parents), then stray off the usual commandments agenda (take care of yourself, be temperate.)
They are sponsored by “thewaytohappiness.org”, which if you follow the link yourself you will see is a website for “a common-sense guide to better living” based on 21 precepts written by L Ron Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology. Continue reading
We were happy to see the girls and women of the Alfalah Muslim School out on the weekend helping to clean up Long Beach.
Their veils, dress and close supervision are not the norm in Barbados – but will be the norm for all Barbadian women if the Muslim vision for the future of Barbados becomes reality.

“The kind of Muslims I wouldn’t mind building a mosque at Ground Zero (and there’s lots of them) would NEVER EVEN DREAM of building of mosque there.”
A Barbadian engineer and author proposes some answers
Our blogging friend Grenville Phillips II is a prolific writer and what I’ll call an “activist structural engineer” in the best sense of the term. Whether the subject is the proper installation of rebar when building a home, or politics or religion – he looks at all the factors, identifies the problems, researches and then methodically builds his solutions. Read anything at his Weighed in the Balance blog and you’ll see proof of that.
But Grenville is also a man with a sense of history and humanity – he’s not just a numbers guy. I think it is the combination of structural engineer, historian and teacher with genuine concern for humanity that makes everything he writes so worthwhile. That, and his talent for being able to present his ideas clearly and simply enough to be understood.
Writing under his nom de plume Walter Phillips, he has published two books… Continue reading
Join the buffet line for Holy Communion!
Our friend Jdid left Barbados many years ago for the cold and snow of Toronto, but apart from the occasional complaint on his Doan Mind Me blog about harsh weather he seems happy with his home away from home. Last time we looked he had a good woman and a little one just arrived and we hope the Lord continues to bless Jdid and his family.
And speaking of the Lord, Jdid’s latest article weighs in on a story out of Toronto where an Anglican priest gave a communion wafer to a dog and a non-believer. Continue reading
Wikileaks – tens of thousands of secret war docs on internet show betrayal by “moderate” Muslim allies
Pakistan Intelligence Agency actively assisting Afghan Taliban
Pakistan receives over a billion US dollars every year in aid from the USA alone, yet its intelligence service meets regularly with Taliban soldiers and terrorists to guide their actions, including assassinations of Afghan government members.
That is just one of the revelations in a treasure trove of tens of thousands of stolen US military and intelligence services documents that have been posted at WikiLeaks.org
The New York Times, The Guardian and the German magazine Der Spiegel were provided with the documents weeks ago and today have their stories up in coordination with WikiLeaks. The owner of WikiLeaks has been on the run from various authorities for a month now.
If you only learn one thing from the WikiLeaks revelations, learn this: Continue reading
15 Saudi school girls burned to death because they were not wearing face veils
We first heard of Geert Wilders through Ian Bourne’s Bajan Reporter online news site.
Wilders is the parliamentary leader of the Netherlands PVV Party for Freedom and is an outspoken critic of Islam. His film “Fitna” outraged some Muslims who threatened Wilders with violence because the film contains Koranic verses that instruct Muslims to commit violence, juxtaposed with images of Muslim violence. (I guess it’s okay with some Muslims that their Koran instructs them to commit violence, but not okay to point that out.)
Wilders is currently on trial in the Netherlands for offending Muslims under the Dutch hate speech laws.
The Islamic website MuslimsDebate.com invited Mr. Wilders to explain why he is anti-Islam so he wrote them a respectful response that is worth your time to read. Continue reading
Germany is World Cup Football pick of former Lebanon government minister “because they burned the Jews”
Oh, sorry… I got that wrong. The former government minister is supporting Brazil in football, but in politics it’s Germany all the way…
“I support Germany in politics and Brazil in soccer. I like the way Brazil plays. But I like the Germans because they hate the Jews and they burned them.”

IMPORTANT UPDATE – Location Change!
Hail Brethren and Sistren
It has been confirmed that the Healing of the Nation will be relocated to ISRAEL LOVELL FOUNDATION, My Lord’s Hill, St. Michael.

Muslim reform activist Dr. Wafa Sultan: Ground Zero Mosque decisive victory by Islam over the infidels
Will Americans submit to an Islamist Victory at Ground Zero?
In a recent article Barbados Free Press called the 9/11 Mosque to be built at Ground Zero… “A triumphant symbol of Islamist domination and American submission”
Most readers agreed with our analysis, while others said we were reading too much into the location and symbolism of the 9/11 Mosque.
Realization & Outrage growing against the 9/11 Mosque
Today one of the world’s foremost Muslim thinkers confirmed what we already thought: the 9/11 Mosque will be viewed by the vast majority of Muslims as a victory over infidels and another step in “Islam’s march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law.”
Syrian-born human rights activist Dr. Wafa Sultan was named by Time Magazine as one of the Top 100 most influential people in the world. You should read what she says about the 9/11 Ground Zero Mosque…
A Mosque at Ground Zero Equals Victory
by Dr. Wafa Sultan
A new mosque is now being planned in New York near “Ground Zero,” two blocks from where the World Trade Center used to be. This mosque is headed by an Imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder of the Cordoba Initiative, who proposes to convert the now-shuttered Burlington Coat Factory on Park Place into an Islamic Cultural Center which would contain a mosque.
It is crucial to study the supremacist ideology of Islam and to recognize, for example, that the building of a mosque especially at Ground Zero is viewed by Muslims as a decisive victory over the infidels in Islam’s march to establish its ultimate goal: the submission of all others to Islam and to Sharia Law…

9/11 Mosque to be built at Ground Zero: A triumphant symbol of Islamist domination and American submission
Will Americans submit?
Recent history has shown that if you draw a picture of Mohammad or otherwise “insult” Islam, you’ll have no shortage of offended Muslims lining up for an opportunity to stab you in the heart, behead you, rape your daughter or burn your house… so you’ll have to forgive my tongue-in-cheek “confusion” that sensitive Muslims everywhere don’t realise how offensive it is to build a huge mosque on the holy ground surrounding what was the World Trade Centre.
The joke is, of course, that the people planning to build the 9/11 Mosque at Ground Zero know exactly how offensive it will be.
That’s the idea. That’s why they want to hold the grand opening on the tenth anniversary of the slaughter of 9/11.
The proponents know that the building won’t be seen by the Islamist fascists as a mere mosque: it will be a victory monument. A symbol of American submission. A vision of the progress of the worldwide Muslim Caliphate that is the Jihadist goal.
It will be something for the fascists to point to throughout the Islamic world when they’re not busy otherwise – say sharpening their knives to mutilate young women or hanging 16 year old girls for having unwed relations.
“What could be more insulting and humiliating than a monster mosque in the shadow of the World Trade Center buildings that were brought down by an Islamic jihad attack? Any decent American, Muslim or otherwise, wouldn’t dream of such an insult. It’s a stab in the eye of America.”
… Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs blog
Time for a little Tolerance Reciprocity by the Muslims
The proponents of the 9/11 Mosque say that allowing its construction will show the tolerance of Americans.
Okay, I’m all for tolerance – so here’s my offer…
If the Muslims want to build a mosque at Ground Zero, no problem. I’ll even donate time and money to make it happen…
…Just as soon as the first Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Buddhist and Mormon places of worship are built in Mecca.

Is there Rastafari profiling in Barbados?
The Royal Barbados Police Force has its work to accomplish. However, according to the democratic rule of law, when the actions of the State violate the constitutional rights of citizens, redress is due regardless of religious expression of the citizens.
More evidence of Rastafari profiling by the Royal Barbados Police Force was demonstrated in a public announcement concerning a man who is wanted for questioning in connection with serious criminal matters. This announcement, which is dated May 4, 2010 on the CBC Evening News and May 5, 2010 in the Barbados Advocate, unmistakably “profiles” this wanted man as “with Rastafarian hairstyle to shoulder length”. This is one general instance of Rastafari stigmatisation by a law enforcement agency.
The announcement categorically incites and perpetuates a suspicion on Rastafarians. Continue reading
Some might think this article to be a strange way of commemorating Easter, Christ and his sacrifice, but others will I’m sure will appreciate the juxtaposition of Jesus and Che. Hell… the atheists do it all the time, so why can’t this Christian? And yes, this failed Christian has had a rum or four, but why should that stop him from firing up the old Dell and talking about false Messiahs?
As Easter is upon us, we’ve republished a 2007 article We Know What Jesus Didn’t Look Like… Don’t We?
To be “fair” we will now publish quotes from another religious leader: Che Guevara. (“Fairness” is the enemy of “Justice”, but we’ll leave that for another day.)
“Che? A religious leader?” you say. Yes, Che was a religious leader. His religion was Communist atheism and he was as good a proponent of that religion as any. He was willing to die for it and he did. He was willing to put aside all his humanity for his religion. If thousands had to die for this new religion, so be it. Che was willing to pull the trigger – and often he did personally. (Sounds a whole lot like the Catholic Inquisition or the current Muslim jihad, doesn’t it?)
Seven months pregnant and condemned to death for the crime of being a “counter-revolutionary”? No problem for Che. He pulled the trigger. Even the most barbaric societies allow a condemned pregnant woman to give birth before execution, but not Che.
To this day Communists often punish entire generations for the misdeeds – real or imagined – of one of the family. I’m sure that Che would have simply loved North Korea.
Just so you know my opinion of the icon Che, who also founded the CDR – Committees for the Defense of the Revolution.
Here are a few quotes from Che that for some strange reason don’t appear in the new Apple iPod application of Che quotes.
Just remember folks: don’t believe me, BFP, Reuters, the New York Times or the Barbados Advocate. When you read something, do your own research and seek out original sources of information.
Do that for Che and let me know what you think.
Here are a few quotes from “Che” – otherwise known as “He who walks the behind the rows“ (as Stephen King would say)…
“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and booze, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”
“The negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths”
“Mexicans are a rabble of illiterate Indians.”
Happy Easter to our Bajan and Cuban communists.
