Words fail me...

A couple of news stories caught my attention tonight. The first was a report on the attempted stoning of two transgender women near Cologne railway station (yes that place again) by men of "North African" descent. The Jerusalem Post reports:

BERLIN — Three young men from North Africa were arrested on Saturday in the western German city of Dortmund for stoning two transgender women.

According to a report on Friday on television station SAT1.NRW, the men attacked Yasmine und Elisa, two transgender women, near the city’s main train station.

“Within seconds we were tossed around…and they took stones from a gravel bed on the corner and threw them at us,” said Elisa.

A police car appeared at the train station as the stoning attack unfolded and arrested the men.

The German media as a general rule do not disclose the last names of victims to protect their privacy. The three men are between 16 and 18 years-old and are known to the authorities from theft and assault arrests.

Dortmund police official Kim-Ben Freigang said the suspects told the police that “such persons must be stoned.”

It was that last comment that struck me so much about these men's distorted "world-view". They have previously committed theft and under their own Sharia Laws should surely have expected to have their hand chopped off as I understand it.

The double standards of these youths shows what a real problem integrating a huge number of Asylum seekers all at once in Europe. A report in The Times today shows that the German public has turned against Merkels open door policy quite quickly and with an large number still on the way will force her government to consider it's approach to unfettered immigration.

Meanwhile in Pakistan I was horrified to read this:

A 15-year-old Pakistani boy cut off his own hand believing he had committed blasphemy, only to be celebrated by his parents and neighbours for the act, police told AFP Friday.

Local police chief Nausher Ahmed described how an imam told a gathering at a village mosque that those who love the Prophet Mohammad always say their prayers, then asked who among the crowd had stopped praying.

Mohammad Anwar, 15, raised his hand by mistake after apparently mishearing the question.

The crowd swiftly accused him of blasphemy so he went to his house and cut off the hand he had raised, put it on a plate, and presented it to the cleric, the police chief said.

The incident took place at a village in Hujra Shah Muqeem district, some 125 kilometres (77 miles) south of Lahore, the capital of Punjab province, about four days ago, according to the policeman.

Ahmed said that he has seen a video in which the boy is greeted by villagers in the street as his parents proclaim their pride.

A religion without reason.

Words fail me. Barbaric.
