All of you noticed that I haven't updated this blog in a while, and many of you wonderd if I was ok. I was, I was just too disgusted with what was going on in my comment section to even contemplate writing here at all. I have never seen this much hate in my life, and I am accustomed to hatemail and vicious comments from trolls. This had reached such a level that I am seriously contemplating closing down the comment feature. I don't want to, and my belief in free-speech compels me not to delete the comments or ban those who are doing it, but if this goes on I will shut this whole thing down.
If you have valid points of discussion, please have them out in the open. If you are going to use colorfull language to make the point, then please do use them, but NO PERSONAL INSULTS OR BIGGOTTED COMMENTS, oh, and if you have a conflict with another comment poster, then please, exchange e-mails, and commence to hate each other in back and forth e-mail. I don't care who started it, I don't care if they deserved your response or not, I don't even care if you think each other to be skidmarks in the underpants of humanity, I don't want to see it. KEEP IT TO YOURSELVES.
Hope we understand one another!
Hamas is threatening a repeat of the AlAreesh invasion, and Nora is reporting tensions on the Egypt Gaza borders, with the egyptians over there stocking on food so they wouldn't be left starving like last time!
Hey, egyptian army and security forces, how about you show half of the enthusiasm you show for silencing freedom of speech of the people in protecting the borders? Be fuckin useful for change!
This is really messed up:
The arrests began in October 2007, when police stopped two men having
an altercation on a street in central Cairo. When one of them told the
officers that he was HIV-positive, police immediately took them both to
the Morality Police office and opened an investigation against them for
homosexual conduct. The two men told human rights defenders that they
were slapped and beaten for refusing to sign statements the police
wrote for them. They spent four days in the Morality Police office
handcuffed to an iron desk, sleeping on the floor. Police later
subjected the two men to forensic anal examinations designed to “prove”
that they had engaged in homosexual conduct.
Human Rights Watch has documented that such examinations
to detect “evidence” of homosexuality are not only medically spurious
but constitute torture.
Police then arrested two more men because their
photographs or telephone numbers were found on the first two detainees.
Authorities subjected all to HIV tests without their consent. All four
are still in detention, pending prosecutors’ decision on whether to
bring charges of homosexual conduct. The first two arrestees, who
reportedly tested HIV-positive, are being held in a Cairo hospital,
handcuffed to their beds and only unchained for an hour each day.
Meanwhile, police apparently placed the apartment where one of the men
had lived under surveillance. On November 20, two days after a new
tenant had assumed the lease, police raided the apartment and detained
four other men.
According to the arrest report, the men were fully dressed
and were not engaging in any illegal acts at the time of the arrests.
However, all were charged with homosexual conduct, apparently solely on
the basis that they were found in a dwelling formerly occupied by one
of the earlier detainees.
People who have spoken to the four men since their arrest
told Human Rights Watch that a non-commissioned officer in the police
station beat one detainee on the head several times. Police allegedly
forced the four men to stand in a painful position for three hours with
their arms lifted in the air. They were provided no food, drink, or
blankets during their first four days of detention. Authorities also
tested these men for HIV without their consent. One of the men
reportedly said that the prosecutor, when informing him that he had
tested positive for HIV, told him: “People like you should be burnt
alive. You do not deserve to live.”
I am speechless! Read more here!
..before anymore bad shit happens!
That is all!
Well, when they try to cross our borders, unlike when palestinians do it, we shoot and kill them. Apparently we are ok with shooting people who are breaching our borders, but only if they are black. That doesn't make us racist, because, well, like, ok, so we are racist. Who cares? They are black, people. I mean, Somalia is now facing the world's greatest humanitarian crisis (yes, more than Gaza. Imagine!!) according to the UN, but does anybody care? Hell no. Do you see anyone collecting money for them? Or doing anything to alleviate their suffering? Aren't they our muslim brothers too? Oh, right, I forgot. They are black. Plus, the people causing their crisis are not Jews. We don't care unless the crisis is somehow related to Jews or americans. I can't even imagine the trouble we would be in with world-opinion if we had shot and killed a palestinian on our borders, but Blacks are ok. Fantastic!
Q: Why is this story of the egyptian army's seizure of land and homes not reported in the egyptian media or anywhere on the blogsphere?
A: Because critisizing the army in any way can land you for at least year in jail. Plus, whatchu gonna do? Call them thieves? Can't really steal what you already own, and they own all of our asses. You know why? Cause they got guns and we don't. Yay for Gun Control Laws.
will write about it eventually, but for now, what he said!
This is very clearly a Hoax (if you are still hopeful about it, read this article and weep, Perv),but it does raise some serious questions to me: What, exactly, are the limits for pedophilia in light of marriage through Parental consent? I mean, I know there aren't a lot of 13 and 14 year old Brides out there in the US, but they must exist. I have seen enough small backwater towns with its people's minds running on the loopy side to know that this is quite possible. Hell, all you need is a bunch of realy bad trash parents- and god knows there are plenty of them- with one extra daughter they won't miss and some money they could be using. So, according to the law: Man sleeps with 13 year old, that's statutory rape. Man marries 13 year old with the approval of her mommy and daddy, and sex with her is legal and ok? Does the Girl have to consent? Can a 13 or 14 year old girl make such a decision for herself? How does it all work, really?
And as for our side of the pond, what difference is the dowry from the Bride Price? I know that some people will like to recite the comfortable distinction that a bride price goes to the parents, while a dowry goes to the couple, but you and I know that this ain't always the case! Hell, until now there are cases of a women's dowry consisting of livestock in farmland egypt. Not to mention the dowry paid by rich arabs who come to egypt for 2 weeks to a month marriage to a poor you egyptian girlwhose parents could use the money, which happens more than any of us would like to admit. And the public consensus is: this ain't prostitution, because they are married in front of God and society. They have a contract, you see. That makes it all legit. But all in all ignoring the simple truth: You are paying for a bride to marry you. You negotiate the Price with her family. Whether this money is spent on the couple's house or kept by the father is irrelevant: In order to be with that woman and have her have sex with you every night, you had to pay lots of money. And the more you pay, the more your new mother in law can brag about how much her daughter is worth, and somehow not thinking twice about how truly fucked up or disgusting this whole thing is.
So here is a Business opportunity for you: a website selling Egyptian brides, and instead of bride price one writes dowry, and the men can bid their money away for the chance of being the first to "hit that". It would all be legal as long as a marriage contract got signed, and surely there wouldn't be an uproar about it. God knows in our society, the worst thing that could happen to a girl is for her not to be married, you know?
