  1. Someone needs to change jobs. One tour too many.
  2. Harper did not hide in the closet. Harper is not hiding as Canada "goes to the dogs". He is the dog. Harper was the front and centre creator and distributer of this disgusting message shared by very few. This is all about Harper being a US lapdog and not about Canadians in general. Most are very embarrassed by him. The shooting was from a man who was mentally ill long before his "conversion" to Islam. Ironically, he was not welcome at his local mosque due to his aggressive and disrespectful manner. This shooting had nothing to with organized anything or Harper and his delusions. This was a man who should have been in a psychiatric institution.
  3. Racism is never a simple topic. It exists everywhere and among all people for many reasons. Fear is a big reason. People fear what they don't understand and what they think may potentially hurt them in some way or another. Justification for racism? Apologetics? Not sure what you mean.
  4. Motive is the key issue in most pre-meditated murder cases. That is usually the most telling aspect of intention or ill intention and is one of the first steps of a crime investigation. What was her motive for killing him?
  5. The OP and the responses are both equally humourous. Thanks for a good laugh!
  6. That was two drunks. No need to denigrate all of Australia who stood up for the security guard in the 100's of thousands in social media and in court and spewed over the jerks. He also was arrested http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/security-guard-subject-to-racial-attack-on-brisbane-train-speaks-out/story-fnihsrf2-1227089397578?nk=e73235c6c2ed20ebfdf7afc7aa8a0a0b Racist rants are disgusting but how they are dealt with are a true measure of a community. How would this be handled in Pakistan?
  7. Salam alaykum, thuglife Sometimes we need to think twice about the things we say - once for content and once for akhlaq.
  8. http://euobserver.com/foreign/125889 Sweden Breaks EU ranks to Recognize Palestine 03.10.14 @ 18:49 RELATED EU poised to 'take measures' against Israeli food Most Malta boat victims were Gaza refugeesBY ANDREW RETTMAN BRUSSELS - The new left-wing government in Sweden has promised to recognise Palestine, amid EU criticism of Israel’s latest settlement expansion. The Swedish PM, Stefan Lofven, made the pledge at his inauguration speech in parliament on Friday (3 October). “The conflict between Israel and Palestine can only be solved by a two-state solution, negotiated in accordance with international law. It must guarantee both the Palestinians and Israelis' legitimate demands for national sovereignty and security”, he said. “A two-state solution requires mutual recognition and a will to peaceful co-existence. Sweden will therefore recognise the state of Palestine”. The step is the first ever by a sitting member of the EU. Six former Communist EU countries, as well as Cyprus and Malta, recognised Palestine in the 1980s before they joined the European Union. But their pre-EU policies have little meaning today: When Palestine asked the UN in 2012 to recognise it as an “observer state” the Czech Republic was the only EU country which voted No despite recognising its sovereignty in 1988. Fourteen others voted in favour, while the rest abstained in a sign of ongoing division in the bloc. Lofven’s announcement caught both Swedish and EU diplomats by surprise. A Swedish source told this website it “marks a really big shift in the Social-Democratic party”. An EU contact said Palestine has stepped up its “lobbying campaign” in Europe: “They had hoped that France would take the step after [Palestinian] president Abbas visited Paris last month, but this didn’t happen”. The Swedish move came the same day the EU published a statement criticising Israel’s plan to build thousands of new settler homes in East Jerusalem. The EU communique used forceful language - “condemned” - and said “development of relations between the EU and Israel will depend on the latter's engagement towards a lasting peace”. Some analysts saw it as a sign of impending action. But the EU contact said it is not. “The wording is not new and was taken from recent [EU] Council conclusions”, he said. The European Commission is currently drafting a code for EU retail labels on settler exports, but the work is still ongoing. It recently banned exports of settler milk and poultry products saying Israeli food safety authorities have no jurisdiction in Palestine, but this is part of a tidying-up process of existing EU law rather than a political sanction. The new settlements mark the first expansion in East Jerusalem for more than 10 years. The EU source said one set of settler homes, in Silwan, is “very sensitive” because it is in the Holy Basin - a part of the old city which hosts Jewish and Muslim sacred sites. A second bloc, in Givat Hamatos, “greatly diminishes” prospects of a two-state solution because it helps enclose Jerusalem, which is claimed by both sides as their capital, in a ring of Jewish-only suburbs.
  9. They are entitled to get what they paid for and you pay megabucks for this service. They asked and paid for a specific profile sperm donor and the company messed it up. They wanted a white sperm donor and should have gotten what they asked for. So what if it was white? Why does everything have to be labelled racist?
  10. There is nothing good about poverty except for those who collect art based on peasants and poverty as subject matter. It is also a popular topic of study for the socio economic elite.
  11. The law in the United States was most definitely designed for the rich, and in so many ways it would be difficult to list them all. Think of all the drug arrests of children of those in powerful positions or Hollywood millionaire movie stars' drug-laced crimes that get dropped in favour of high priced "rehab" centres for every affliction known to mankind. What happens when you cant pay for 6 figure "rehab" facilities? Canada is much more lenient towards those with in need and has far less draconian prison sentences, but those with more money or more education or more connections are more likely to know how to navigate the system to their benefit. There are lots of programs and support services for the socially disadvantaged but you need to know how to access them. If you don't have a social worker - good luck! If that woman visiting in Iran is only in prison (solitary confinement) for going to a sports event, however, that is insane by any legal standard. My guess is that there is something more to this and she is guilty of some other covert activity, or the Iranian government wants to make a political statement. Don't think they feel obliged to tell the world though.
  12. Blind lemming adherence with vigorous apologetics to an obviously flawed process -> complete stagnation.
  13. Yes, religion is only identified if the perpetrator is Muslim, for random acts of violence such as the recent attack by a former employee who had been fired. The religion of other nut cases are not usually identified if they are Christian or Jewish. Valid point. It is an attempt to find a common thread (of Islam) with random acts of violence (committed by Muslims) and the current violence in the middle east, to continue the psychological hold on Americans, in their own homeland, so that the police state can continue to flourish without little to no resistance. however, I was extremely disturbed by the accompanying video. It was gratuitous to your point. There are kids on this site and they do not need to be given links to such a horrific (porno)graphic video and in addition, they now they have the link to other acts of barbarism. We need to exercise some responsibility when posting and I really think this was over the boundaries of what should be considered acceptable.
  14. Good video. Something for us all to think about. What if the family was Muslim and the donor was Hindu?
  15. There would have been no need to beat him if the process had been planned and prepared. Three really blatant areas that need improvement would be better restraint, sturdy gallows and co-ordinated effort with the executioners. Bring evidence??? The evidence of this is clear and is in the video. It was very badly done. If the justice system is confident in its processes, there is an acceptance for re-evaluation and improvement. If not, it will remain backward and an embarrassment.
  16. It was not well done and was open to what happened. Any comparison to an on the spot lynching is an embarrassment. The structure was shoddy and the executioners were poorly prepared and probably nervous as it was public. It is something to learn from not to create apologetics and comparisons with worse situations. Compare to better and more prepared examples if you want to improve.
  17. The situation was chaotic. It looked like an on the spot lynching of a blackman in the american south. It was an embarrassment for Iran as it was recorded. If you do something in public, at least plan and prepare and do it right.
  18. Dont think a woman was put in solitary confinement for 3 months for going to a volleyball game. There is something missing from this story. It would help if Iran would be open about their criminal charges (especially against foreigners) and follow a consistent due process.
  19. It is not the amount of money, as this is relative to your financial situation. You must have the money available or you would not be able to agree. It is up to you what you do with your money, and you have decided that you would give it to him for his family. You ask if you did the right thing, I would say you did - as you made the decision what to do with your money. It was not extortion; it was a request. You had the option to say no. She is ready and willing to fulfill his sexual rights so she has fulfilled his rights. He just has not made himself available so this is on him not on her. Also, I believe there is a four month limit on fulfilling a woman's sexual rights, which I am presuming he is not meeting.
  20. East is not a race and West is not a race and Islam is not a race. Not being convinced of a scholarly opinion is not racism, either. Which race are you referring to?
