No Compulsion In Islam?

A Moroccan father of four girls who imprisoned his wife and children in their flat "in the name of Islam" received a 10-month suspended sentence and was stripped of his parental rights yesterday.

The unidentified 45-year-old was found guilty of breaking French law on compulsory schooling for children over the age of six, which applies to three of the four girls - aged four, 10, 13 and 14.

The man, from the town of Romans-sur-Isère in the Drôme region, said he had refused to allow the girls to go to school without the Islamic headscarf, which is banned in state classrooms.

An unemployed benefit claimant, he argued that he was the "only person able to give them a decent education".

But the judge ruled that the children could have studied the state curriculum from home by correspondence.

The girls, all born in France, had rarely left their flat in La Monnaie, a poor housing estate, and had never got further than the lobby.

They were forbidden to play with toys, watch television or read anything other than the Koran. Their only permitted activities were crochet and cleaning. None of them speaks a word of French.

Social services acted after the eldest rang a child abuse hotline last summer on the advice of a social worker she met outside the flat.

The man's wife, who was not charged, has been moved far from Romans-sur-Isère, near the children's new home, and is allowed to visit them.


It is only the most unintelligent people that insist on following the letter, rather than the spirit of the law.


Iran : A 17 year old girl is sentenced to death by hanging.

Nazanin, 17, was sentenced to death by hanging for defending herself against three rapists.

A young girl who defended herself and her chastity against three male assailants who intended to kidnap and rape her causing injury to one of them who later died in hospital was condemned to death by hanging in an Islamic court in Iran. Nazanin who has seen no more than 17 Springs, all of which under the tyrannical rule of the Mullahs is now facing execution for trying to defend herself and her honor.

No where in the world and under no law self defense is considered to be a crime, but in the tyrannical mullacracy of Iran if a woman does not resist rape she will be stoned as adulterer and if she does she will be hanged.

Nazanin, this young innocent girl, was assaulted by three criminal men in the city of Karaj while walking home in the midday last April (2005). To defend herself she pulled out a knife and stabbed one of her assailants. The knife penetrated the ribs of her attacker who later died in the hospital. The attacks on women in Iran is so frequent that many are forced to carry a concealed weapon for self defense. Unfortunately the Islamic law does not even allow women the right to self defense.

Despite the fact that she had been acting in self defense, as shown by the evidences presented and the testimony of eyewitnesses, Nazanin was sentenced to death by hanging. In the last court hearing she told the judge “I only defended myself and the honor of my family”. She repeated this several times. Nonetheless the jury of all males who like their misogynist prophet thought it is outrageous for a woman to stand for her rights and defend her dignity and honor, swiftly ordered her execution paying no heed to her pleas.

The travesty of justice in Islamic Republic of Iran is beyond description. Please send this news to all the newspapers big and small. Please do not allow this crime go unnoticed. This girl is an innocent flower in the hands of ferocious beasts. Do not allow them to nip her young life in the bud. Let us together provoke an outcry so loud that the ruling thugs in Iran can’t ignore.

These criminals have no shame and don’t give a hoot to world outcry and condemnation. Nonetheless it is our duty as humans not to remain silent.

Please ask your newspaper to report this story.

Please write to your MP and urge the Parliament in your country to condemn the Islamic regime of Iran for their misogyny, human rights violations and crime against humanity.

Please complain to the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner. and ask them to pressure Iran to free Nazanin.

You have to state your name, nationality and address to the all the above if you want your complaint be taken seriously.

A few years ago the son of one of the Mullahs shot and killed a policeman. He walked free by giving a few thousands of dollars to the family of the victim.

“Evil triumphs when good people do nothing”.

Will you give a few minutes of your time to save this precious girl’s innocent life? She has not much time as executions in Iran are swift. Please show your humanity and act now.
