Had it been my child, the conversation would not have progressed as far as to whether she would be wearing a scarf –or not. I would have drawn the line at the mandatory mosque trip. But good on those parents who took a stand.
(Daily Mail) –A Roman Catholic schoolgirl has been labelled a truant after she refused to wear a headscarf during a compulsory trip to a mosque.
Amy Owen, 14, and fellow girl pupils at a Catholic secondary school were told to cover their heads and wear trousers or leggings out of respect for their Muslim hosts.
But when her mother objected, saying she did not want her daughter to ‘dress as a Muslim’, she received a sternly worded warning letter from the headmaster saying she had no choice.
He added: ‘There are two reasons for these visits. One is that the scheme of work in religious studies REQUIRES children to have knowledge and understanding of other world religions.
‘The second is that the school is REQUIRED to promote tolerance respect and understanding. This is known as community cohesion.
‘A failure to do this could result in an unwelcome inspection judgement. None of us would relish that.
‘Whilst I may not require you to pay for this I must require your child to participate.’
Amy’s mother Michelle Davies refused to back down and, after being told no teachers would be back at school to keep an eye on her daughter, she kept her at home, citing religious objections – as did as many as ten other families.
Yesterday, after the school acted on its threat to class Amy’s absence as truancy, Miss Davies accused it of discriminating against Christian pupils.
‘It’s like they’re putting a gun to your head – either you go to a mosque, or you’re marked down as an unauthorised absence on your record – that’s it no two ways about it,’ the 34-year-old said.
Parents were asked to make a £3 payment towards the Year 9 trip to the Al Rahma Mosque in Liverpool last month, and an 11-point dress and behaviour code from the mosque was circulated.
Miss Davies, a home help, of Ellesmere Port, added: ‘There are some parts of religious education lessons that children who are Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t have to attend because that’s part of their religion, and the fact is Amy is Catholic and not a Muslim.’
Read the last paragraph very carefully. Jehovah’s Witness students get a pass at the Catholic school but the Catholic students do not on a forced field trip to a mosque.
Chrislam; once you invite the devil across your doorstep, he…will…never…leave. And if you dare try to push him out, there will be hell to pay.
How dare she! Beyond the pale.
(Fox Baltimore) –US Air Force (USAF) veteran Julie Frein said she is willing to give up her burial plot at Arlington National Cemetery to Tamerlan Tsarnaev – the deceased Boston bombing suspect.
The Anne Arundel County woman told Fox45 she feels the terrorist suspect should be able to be laid to rest and just wants it to all be over. “I feel sympathy for [his family] in that as long as this issue is open, they can’t have closure,”
Frein told Fox45′s Joy Lepola. When asked how she thought Americans would react to the suspect being buried in a national cemetery, Frein replied, “Well the country would just have to get over that, wouldn’t they? Because nobody, nobody deserves to rot above ground.”
Physch eval STAT…
Arlington National Cemetery responds on Facebook:
We have been receiving calls about the interview a veteran did regarding giving up her space at a veteran cemetery to the Boston Bombing suspect so he can be buried. We want to make it clear that this suspect is not eligible to be buried at Arlington — a veteran can’t transfer their eligibility to another person. Please pass this along to those who are concerned!
The funeral director has been turned down in three states.
(Boston Herald) –A Worcester funeral home director was scrambling last night to find a cemetery that would bury the marathon bombings mastermind, as protesters jeered outside his door demanding that the bomber’s body be shipped out of the United States.
Funeral home owner Peter Stefan told the Herald he has reached out to four cemeteries where Muslims are buried and so far all have turned him down.
Stefan said it would be impossible to send the body back to Russia and added the family wants Tsarnaev buried in Boston.
“They want to bury him here, in Boston, in a Muslim cemetery,” he said. “I’m not going to hold him too long, the federal government is involved in this. If need be I will request help from them. A person has to be buried. Period.
“If we had Hitler here, we would bury Hitler,” Stefan added.
“My main thing is looking for a cemetery,” he said. “I’ve been making calls. I’ve been turned down by every one of them. All these people are petrified.”

Meanwhile at the islamophilic BBC:
No motive has yet been established for the bombing.
Deaf, dumb and blind.
(encounterbooks) –The first fundamental truth about the “Arab Spring” is that there never was one. The salient fact of the Middle East, the only one, is Islam. The Islam that shapes the Middle East inculcates in Muslims the self-perception that they are members of a civilization implacably hostile to the West. The United States is a competitor to be overcome, not the herald of a culture to be embraced.
Every human heart does not yearn for freedom. As Andrew C. McCarthy explains, In the Islam of the Middle East, “freedom” means something very nearly the opposite of what the concept connotes to Westerners — it is the freedom that lies in total submission to Allah and His law. That law, sharia, is diametrically opposed to core components of freedom as understood in the West — beginning with the very idea that man is free to make law for himself, irrespective of what Allah has ordained.

BOSTON – Three college friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev removed a backpack containing fireworks emptied of gunpowder from his dorm room at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth three days after the attack, according to charges filed Wednesday.
Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev are charged with conspiring to obstruct justice. A third man, Robel Phillipos, is charged with making false statements to federal investigators.
The affidavit says Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev agreed to get rid of the backpack after concluding from news reports that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was one of the bombers. A court appearance for the three is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
The suspects told the FBI they had no previous knowledge of the bombings, and there is no evidence to suggest they knew of the plot, a source told Newsday.
Three people were killed and more than 260 injured on April 15 when two bombs exploded near the finish line. The suspect’s brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died after a gunfight with police several days later. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured and lies in a prison hospital.
Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev have been held in jail for more than a week on allegations that they violated their student visas while attending UMass. Linda Cristello, the Boston attorney who represented them at a hearing on the immigration case Wednesday morning, confirmed earlier that they were facing separate federal charges.
All three men charged Wednesday began attending UMass with Tsarnaev at the same time in 2011, the FBI affidavit says. [...]
Nope, not a coincidence at all. Roll eyes.
More here; including the criminal complaint.
Dias Kadyrbayev’s VKontakte profile: World view ISLAM
I’d wager that his fellow Kazakh national Azamat Tazhayakov is Muslim too.
And this is interesting, according to this report in West Kazakhstan Today, Azamat’s Tazhayakov’s father Ismagoulov Amir Tazhayakhovich, is a “well-known business man” and an Atyrau city council deputy.
The statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan reads that one of diplomats is now in Boston cooperating with US authorities and keeping contact with the detained students and their families.
Azamat Tazhayakov, graduate of the Astana based international school “Miras”, was born in Atyrau. His father, Ismagoulov Amir Tazhayakhovich, is a well-known businessman in the region, the chairman of the board of directors of Abylaikhan Group JSC and the deputy of the Maslikhat (city council) of Atyrau city. Unlike the father of another student from Almaty (Dias Kadyrbayev) who gave an interview to Tengrinews, Amir Tazhayakhovich withheld from comments.
Update: Photo of the lone naturalized American citizen; Robel Phillipos.
Phillipos, 19, of Cambridge, was studying marketing, but the university said Wednesday he is not currently enrolled.
With Tsarnaev, he was a 2011 graduate of the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, the city schools’ superintendent’s office said.
Phillipos is a naturalized U.S. citizen who reportedly was born in Ethiopia. If convicted, he faces a maximum sentence of eight years and a $250,000 fine.
Phillipos lives with his mother in Cambridge. Phillipos’ mother is from Ethiopia. She is a single mother and works with refugees. The family’s apartment building is located next to the gas station where the carjacking victim from the night of the shootout in Watertown escaped.

Azamat Tazhayakov’s mini bio:
In Kazakhstan, Tazhayakov grew up in Atyrau and graduated from Miras International School in Astana, according to his Facebook page….
Tazhayakov, who entered the United States on a student visa, is charged with obstruction of justice and conspiring to conceal evidence, including Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s backpack and laptop computer. Tazhayakov faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Two days after the bombing, accused bomber Tsarnaev hung out with Tazhayakov at Tazhayakov’s New Bedford apartment until midnight, the affidavit said. The next day, April 18, Tsarnaev gave Tazhayakov a ride home from an afternoon class and dropped him off around 4 p.m., the court affidavit said.
An hour later, federal agents released the photographs that led to identification of Tsarnaev and his brother, Tamerlan.
Tazhayakov and and his roommate admitted removing Tsarnaev’s backpack and other items from his dorm room that night, FBI Special Agent Scott Cieplik said in the affidavit. The men have “admitted that they agreed to get rid of it after concluding from news reports that Tsarnaev was one of the Boston marathon bombers,” Cieplik’s affidavit said.[...]
Dias Kadyrbayev’s mini bio:
UMass Dartmouth says Kadyrbayev is no longer a student there. His profile on the VK Russian social network site says he is a member of the class of 2015 at the School of Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. However, Sara McDonnell, assistant media relations manager at MIT, said, “There is no registered MIT student of that name.”
Kadyrbayev first met Tsarnaev in the fall of 2011 at UMass and became better friends with him the following spring, he told investigators.
“They spent a great deal of time socializing, and Kadyrbayev repeatedly visited Tsarnaev’s home and met his family members,” the affidavit said.
Kadyrbayev’s VK “world view” is Islam, his “personal priority” is listed as “improving the world” and next to “Important in others” he has listed “kindness and honesty.” He has listed his views on smoking and alcohol as “very negative.”
A Google Translate interpretation of Kadyrbayev’s boarding school information includes physics and mathematics as specialties and indicates he graduated with the class of 2011. Google also deciphers the word Zhautykov, and web searches indicate there is a Zhautykov Republican Specialized Physics-Mathematics boarding school for gifted students in Kazakhstan.
The affadavit says Kadyrbayev met Tsarnaev outside his dorm room two days after the bombing. Federal agents released the photos of the marathon suspects at 5 p.m. April 18, the next
That evening, Kadyrbayev texted Tsarnaev and told him he looked like one of the suspects.
Tsarnaev texted back “lol” and “come to my room and take what you want,” the affidavit said.
[Sounds like code for 'get rid of the evidence']
The three men returned to the New Bedford apartment and watched news reports. Kadyrbayev said they decided as a group around 10 p.m. to put the backpack and fireworks in the trash, the affidavit says. [...]
I think they are lying. It is all to convenient and coincidental for my taste.

Boston Marathon bomber Islamic jihadist Tamerlan Tsarnaev was to radical for Saudi Arabia, but not for Obama and Janet Napolitano.
(Daily Mail) –The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia sent a written warning about accused Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2012, long before pressure-cooker blasts killed three and injured hundreds, according to a senior Saudi government official with direct knowledge of the document.
The Saudi warning, the official told MailOnline, was separate from the multiple red flags raised by Russian intelligence in 2011, and was based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen.
Citing security concerns, the Saudi government also denied an entry visa to the elder Tsarnaev brother in December 2011, when he hoped to make a pilgrimage to Mecca, the source said. Tsarnaev’s plans to visit Saudi Arabia have not been previously disclosed.
The Saudis’ warning to the U.S. government was also shared with the British government. ‘It was very specific’ and warned that ‘something was going to happen in a major U.S. city,’ the Saudi official said during an extensive interview.
It ‘did name Tamerlan specifically,’ he added. The ‘government-to-government’ letter, which he said was sent to the Department of Homeland Security at the highest level, did not name Boston or suggest a date for his planned attack.
A DHS official denied, however, that the agency received any such warning from Saudi intelligence about Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
‘DHS has no knowledge of any communication from the Saudi government regarding information on the suspects in the Boston Marathon Bombing prior to the attack,’ MailOnline learned from one Homeland Security official who declined to be named in this report.
The White House took a similar view. ‘We and other relevant U.S. government agencies have no record of such a letter being received,’ said Caitlin Hayden, a spokesperson for the president’s National Security Council.
The letter likely came to DHS via the Saudi Ministry of Interior, the agency tasked with protecting the Saudi kingdom’s homeland.
A Homeland Security official confirmed Tuesday evening on the condition of anonymity that the 2012 letter exists, saying he had heard of the Saudi communication before MailOnline inquired about it.
President Barack Obama’s published schedule indicates that he met in the Oval Office with Prince Mohammed bin Naif bin Abdulaziz, the Saudi Interior minister, on January 14, 2013.
Pay close attention to the look on short Piers’ face. Entertainment money can’t buy!
(NewsBusters) Tennessee State Senator Stacey Campfield is standing firm, refusing to apologize for a joke he made about assault pressure cookers that clearly mocked the push for more gun control in America. He’s been criticized for making the joke so soon after the Boston bombings. And State Senator Stacy Campfield joins me now.
Mr. Campfield, what was this all about? Why did you do this?
STACEY CAMPFIELD, TENNESSEE STATE SENATOR: Just pointing out the hypocrisy of the left, how they push for gun control ten seconds after Sandy Hook shooting. And yet when something else happens, they refuse to say that hey, it’s not an inanimate object; it’s actually the person. So when people go on and say, we have to get rid of guns, we got to push for gun control, it’s just ridiculous. It’s like pushing for pressure cooker control after the explosion.
MORGAN: What other things can you do with a pressure cooker other than kill people?
CAMPFIELD: You can cook food.
MORGAN: Right. What other things can you do with a gun other than shoot things?
CAMPFIELD: Other than shooting. I guess you can use it as a walking stick. You can hunt with it. You can go target practice. You can do all sorts of things.
MORGAN: You use a gun as a walking stick, do you?
CAMPFIELD: You. I guess theoretically you could. You could use it as a hammer if you really wanted to. But what’s that have to do with anything?
We’re talking about an inanimate object that does nothing by itself.
It does absolutely nothing by itself, just like a pressure cooker does absolutely nothing by itself.
Now that gun control has failed, Piers, I’m wondering when are you going to move back to England. Because everyone in Tennessee is dying to know.
CAMPFIELD: I’m going to hang around and just see if people can’t grow enough courage in this country to face the reality of your gun violence problem.
Spare us. We will do just fine without you and your arrogant anti-American rubbish, intended to crumble the foundation of our liberty.
