Konsekvenserne af det udbredte indgifteri blandt muslimer.

Den britiske TV-station Channel4 er kendt for dybdeborende “Dispatches”-programmer – såsom Undercover Mosque, Inside Britain’s Islamic Republic og den nedenstående When Cousins Marry. Programmer der aldrig vil blive vist på dansk TV. Om det sidste skriver man: “Dispatches reveals the tragic consequences of these relationships. First cousin marriages cause hundreds of children to be born with terrible disabilities in Britain every year; one third of whom are so ill that they die before they are five years old.

The practice is most common in Britain’s Pakistani community, in which more than 50% of people marry their first cousin, and in Bradford 75% of ethnic Pakistanis follow the tradition. It is also common in some Middle Eastern and East African communities here, and in the UK’s Bangladeshi community, nearly a quarter of people marry their first cousins. But the practice isn’t uncommon in the white British community either: this documentary features a couple, first-cousins-once-removed, whose daughter died of a genetic disease. The medical risks include infant mortality, birth defects, learning difficulties, blindness, hearing impairment and metabolic disorders. As adults, the offspring of these relationships also risk sporadic abortions or infertility.

Reporter Tazeen Ahmad meets affected families, including one with three children with serious degenerative genetic diseases. Tazeen’s own grandparents were first cousins: five of their children died before the age of ten, and three of her uncles were deaf. Dispatches questions why no major national publicity campaign warns of these health risks. At-risk couples in some areas are offered genetic counselling, with some being offered selection of embryos or terminations, but as only 40% of recessive disorders can be medically tested for, this is of limited use.

Even talking about the practice is controversial. And, although many British studies have established the risks, people still deny the dangers and extol the benefits of marrying within the family. But others within the community say the risks should be publicised.”

Måske er der alligevel god mening i at HMV-regeringen og EUSSR finansierer pæstilensernes våbenindkøb…?

Den islamiske dress code tilpasser sig vestlige idealer – såsom brystbomber…

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 23:  “Two Kenyan soldiers were killed in Somalia on Sunday in a major attack that also left 11 Al Shabaab militants dead. Military Spokesman Emmanuel Chirchir said a Transitional Federal Government (TFG) soldier was also killed in the air strike. “Yesterday at around 2300hrs KDF/TFG conducted a raid on an Al Shabaab camp where 11 were killed,” the army spokesman said adding “out of the raid KDF unfortunately lost two of its personnel while TFG lost one.” Chirchir said several arms were recovered from the slain Al Shabaab militants.

On Saturday, Cyrus Oguna of the Defence Forces said the militia had resorted to using women wearing bras fitted with explosives to further their cause. Oguna said that the militia was getting desperate and had started using unconventional means to strike back at the Kenyan army. He added that the outlawed group was also using propaganda, such as killing civilians and claiming they are KDF officials, as their new weapon. – “We are all aware that Al Shabaab for a long time prohibited women from wearing bras. The phenomenon that is emerging now is that Al-Shabaab is using these women who are in their ranks and supplying them with bras that are fitted with explosives and this is something that is critical even to homeland security,” he explained.”

Utøya er guds straf for Norges og Arbejderpartiets betændte forhold til Israel

Statsviter og forfatter Per Haakonsen vil ikke beklage overfor noen at han hevdet at 22. juli kan være et resultat av Norges holdning til Israel.

Under foredraget ble det blant annet hevdet at massakren på Utøya kan skyldes at Gud tar et oppgjør med Arbeiderpartiet.

Haakonsen skal blant annet ha sagt at «Utøya-massakren kan sees i lys av det stadig mer betente forhold mellom Israel og Norge og de diplomatiske kontroverser som har vært i den senere tid».

I stedet sier loven nå at kvinner må adlyde sine ektemenn.

Den nye familieloven ble omskrevet etter press fra konservative muslimske grupper i landet som er beskrevet av FN som et av verdens fattigste.
