Muslims call it law: Legal assistance only at the time of judgment

Seinab Sekaanwand, (alternative spelling: Zeinab Sekaanvand)That Muslim judicial processes have nothing to do with law and order gets shown from the reports of Amnesty International. In the case from the child pride Zeinab Sekaanvand gets shown that women have no rights and the judge is only bloodthirsty. Why they need in this case make a show of a trial? Are they otherwise shaming themselves for their bloodthirstiness?

Since last Thursday morning the 22-year-old Iranian Zeinab Sekaanvand (alternative spelling: Seinab Sekaanwand) can get executed on the gallows. For a murder, which the former children's bride has probably not done at all, as the human rights organization Amnesty International (AI) emphasizes. Iran is silent on the allegations.

Amnesty International has been fighting for Sekaanvand for four years. At that time she was sentenced as a murderer to her husband, with whom she had been married at the age of fifteen. In Iran, girls and boys are considered to be adults from the age if puberty, which is accepted by courts for girls in the age of nine years. But it is not just a death sentence against a minor at the time of the crime. Over the years, new details have emerged about the investigations that make Sekaanvand's fault doubt.

Sekaanvand's conviction was based solely on a written confession, which she had filed in police custody after twenty days. According to her statements, the then 17-year-old was forced to do so by beatings and other ill-treatment. She withdrew her confession in the trial, which was irrelevant to the court, as was her statement that the brother of the man was the culprit and had forced her to confession.

According to Iranian law, the next family members of a person killed can pardon the perpetrator. The brother of the man, who is said to have raped Sekaanvand several times, promised her a pardon, according to her statements, if she admits the act. The court ignored this information and did not investigate its allegations of ill-treatment by the police.

What makes the case even more outrageous: the verdict would also have to be abolished according to Iranian criminal law. As Amnesty told the independent British newspaper Independent, her age should at least have been regarded as a mitigation ground. Furthermore, the court should have sought an opinion on Sekaanvand's state of mind and, in the event of a reduced liability, be entitled to a maximum sentence of imprisonment. According to the British BBC, she has been suffering from depression for a long time.

Above all, Sekaanvand had only contact with a lawyer for the first time on the day of the conviction. The defendant, who was established by the state, also failed to provide information on possible remedies against her conviction. Their execution had been postponed only because she had become pregnant in prison, where she married a fellow prisoner in 2015. The child was born dead last month, after which the Justice declared the postponement of their execution to be over.

UN human rights experts demanded an immediate abolition of the death penalty as well as physical chastisements for minors. In a recent report on the situation of children in the Gulf States, the UN Committee on Children's Rights criticized laws that would allow the death penalty and serious ill-treatment such as stoning, amputation and spanking for minors. The experts urged the Arab countries to suspend immediately the execution of those who are currently living in the death row, who were supposed to have committed their crimes as minors. Laws, which allow stoning, beatings or amputations in children, should be abolished.

The story about Zeinab Sekaanvand makes the Islam to a barbarian tradition of uneducated, inhuman and bloodthirsty murders, child abusers and rapists where even the victim gets prosecuted. How can someone call the Islam to be a religion in such a case?

 

Only the Greek translation from the Bible made Mary to a "Virgin"

Holy ScripturesThis article shows only that each translation is an interpretation and mirrors the opinion from the translator. Such translation failures can get found in each translation. As older the original text is and as more translation generations got done during the time as more of this interpretation failures are getting found in the last version. Don't forget that during the old time only the mighty ones have been able to read and write. These mighty ones have influenced the content of the interpretation into their own favor too. For this reason only stupid ones are believing into some written text without using their own brain.

There is a legend, a richly decorated narrative. And it goes like this: During the first half of the 3rd century BC asked the Egyptian king Ptolemy II Philadelphus the high priest Eleazar from Jerusalem to make a Greek translation of the Hebrew Code (Torah) for the famous Alexandrian library; 72 Jewish savants, six out of the twelve tribes of Israel, a "divine number", are on their way and transferred at the island of Pharao during a time period of 72 days the five books of Moses (Pentateuch) into Greek; It gradually formed the largest translation work of antiquity, the "Septuagint" (literally: the one of the Seventy).

A fantastic story, recorded in the so-called Aristeas letter, but nothing else than just a legend - at least for the used time frame of 72 days.

Legends, as we know, have a long life. The mythic narrative is picked up by the Jewish historian of Josephus Flavius, who died around the year 100 AD. And it expands the philosopher Philo of Alexandria (died in 50 AD): all 72 scholars were strictly apart from their peers and come to an identical conclusion independently of each other.

In reality, showing the biblical research, the giant project is (abbreviated as Roman numerals LXX) naturally grown slowly, it could even not get completed in the second century BC. However, since belong to it already the other books of the Hebrew Bible (Prophets, wisdom literature, etc.), but on individual scriptures the work continued until the time of the New Testament – for example the Psalms.

Don't forget that the Old Testament contains the basics from where got the New Testament and the Quran developed. Already this source contains a lot of interpretation failures and you can be sure a lot of fake stories added by the mighty ones. So don't tell me that you are believing the only available truth. It shows only that you are not open minded, you are repeating only the content you have learned and you are unable to use your own brain.

Mythical origin also the biblical claims that Jesus was begotten of the Holy Spirit - and Maria has been a Virgin at his birth. In the Ancient Orient and in Greece it was tradition that heroes and rulers had gods as fathers in a way. The Evangelist Matthew sees through the virgin birth also fulfilled a prophecy of the Prophet Isaiah that he already understands in a certain way: In the Hebrew original, the speech is only of a "young woman" (the Hebrew word "Almah" describes only the age and not if the woman is single or already married, a virgin got called in Hebrew "betulah"), only the Greek translation of the Hebrew text made it a "Virgin". And so Matthew understood the text.

As Luke writes Matthew that Jesus got born in Bethlehem - unlike the Evangelists Mark and John, who did do not report the birth. He also tells of people and events that for no nativity play are hardly imaginable: the wise men from the East, the Massacre of the Innocents and the escape of Jesus family to Egypt. But probably has nothing to do with it historical reality.

No historical source attests that Herodes the great, who then ruled as King of Rome grace over Israel, ever told a child murder Herod. "The point is to show the danger to the newborn Jesus similar to Moses in the Old Testament, it’s modeled after Matthew draws", explains Jens Schröter, a theologian of the Humboldt-University of Berlin. Also the escape to Egypt should be an invention of the evangelists. Probably Matthew wanted to meet a further prophecy from the Old Testament.

The fact that the birth of a great man - Jesus - raises a star is another mythical motif of the Orient. The wise, who allegedly followed his light toward Bethlehem, it probably also not given, but they fulfilled according Schröter in Matthew an important function: "You should show that Jesus' birth was important for all people, not only for the Jews ".

Jesus is the Messiah prophesied by the ancient Jewish scriptures - Luke and especially Matthew wanted to represent that already in the Christian way at the beginning of their Gospels. And so they had to make the historical circumstances in a particular light. Herein they did not differ from their contemporaries, which is why it would be wrong to measure the evangelists on the scale of modern historiography. Apart from it was in antiquity, accessing mythical elements. "In the stories about Jesus birth had the legendary motifs that task, to make it clear that a very special person had come to the world", said Schröter.

Believe that what is in your comfort and into what you can trust. Don't accept anything word by word only for the reason that it is written somewhere. You will not really find the truth - you'll find only different opinions. Take the chance and build up your own opinion by using your own brain instead of stupidly following the crowd.

 

What happens if stone age culture meets the Western World?

Oktoberfest Munich GermanySome uneducated and intolerant people leaving their own country for living in freedom and without persecution. They are even too stupid informing themselves first to which direction they should escape. These people are thinking that the world is turning around them and the Islam and are expecting that others are changing their own views into their favor.

One of these uneducated people is Morad Almuradi, who is now living at the Netherlands and is expecting that the government of Munich will stop one of their largest party - the Munich Oktoberfest. The deadbeat is thinking that local people have to change their lifestyle only for the reason he and some other Moslem can get offended from the local customs. If someone leaves his country for any reason for living in another country then this have to change his lifestyle and accept the local rules and not opposite round. If someone expect that he can continue his living on the traditional way then he has to chose a country where this is possible and not expecting from others that they will change themselves into his favor. Such narrow minded people like Morad Almuradi are only destroying the helpfulness from the local people and are converting their mind into xenophobia. Morad Almuradi is only one example from these narrow minded people who has chosen the wrong destination for his escape. There are getting 56 Muslim countries found at the world. Why has he not chosen one of them for his escape?

With his own intolerance against other cultures he likes to get accepted? Sorry, but such people need to get sent back to the hole where they have been coming from. If such people are getting prosecuted in their own country then would it be for the same reason for what they are trying to do in foreign countries.

Let's take first a look at the online petition what Morad Almuradi has started at change.org:

Morad Almuradi - the idiot who is thinking that the world is turning around the Islam and himselfBan the Intolerant and Anti-Islamic event of Oktoberfest

Dear City council of Munich,

I am writing this letter to bring to your attention something that I and many Muslims believe is unfair and requires attention. I would like to inform you that the Oktoberfest is an Intolerant and Anti-Islamic event. We tried to ignore the event, but there too many Un-Islamic acts done at the Oktoberfest. Such as alcohol consumption, public nudity etc.

We understand that the Oktoberfest is a yearly German tradition, but we, Muslims, can not tolerate this Un-Islamic event, because it offends us and all Muslims on the earth. We are requesting the immediate cancellation of the upcoming Oktoberfest event.

We also believe that the Oktoberfest might also offend all the Muslim refugees coming from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan. The cancellation of the Oktoberfest event will help refugees not to forget their Islamic history. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Morad Almuradi

 

Dear Morad Almuradi,

I have a few questions to you:

  • Why have you chosen Europe for your relocation?
  • Did you not know that government and religion are in Europe strictly separated?
  • Did you not know that religion is in other countries a private matter?
  • Do you not know that you have been coming to Europe and not Europe has been coming to you?
  • Do you not like to build up the same situation here from which you have been running away?
  • You are expecting that others shall respect your wishes. On the other site you are so closed minded that you are not able to accept the lifestyle from others. Do you think that your behavior is a basement for building up a relationship with European people?
  • Why did you not chose one of the 56 Muslim countries for your escape? I think that you only like to take advance from the European social system without paying one Cent into it. The local people have built up and paid into this social system, which is now paying your expenses and the expenses of the refugees arriving in Europe. In my opinion are you nothing else than a parasite. Do you think that parasites are welcome in any country?
  • If your religion does not allow you to drink some alcohol then do not drink it. But open minded people will even not let themselves influence from your views and your religion. Why do you not go home or to a country where your views are matching with your religious believes, if you are getting offended in your religious views from the tradition and behavior of others? Nobody has called or invited you coming here and nobody will keep you back if you like to leave us.
  • Do you not think that you are overstrain the patience from the people who have welcomed you in Europe?
  • Do you not think that you are the best example for these political parties, who has as their slogan "Foreigners go home"? You and others with the same views are one of their arguments!
  • grilled rear pork legDo you really think that others will stop eating their favorite food only for respecting your religious views? Don't forget you have to integrate yourself into the community here and not others have to accept your narrow minded views.
    At the picture on the right site you'll see one of my favorite dishes - grilled rear pork leg with salads and beer. 

Morad Almuradi you have to integrate yourself into the community of the country where you are living and not the community has to change their traditions! If you not understand this fact then it would better for you to search for a country which is matching your expectations. Nobody keeps you back. If you are not welcome there then it is your fault and not the fault of others. So don't overestimate yourself.

 

Why you should overthink any business relationship with Turkish business partners?

Alanya TurkeySince Erdogan got elected as President from the Turkey the country is showing their true face. The country is changing from a democracy into a dictatorship. It seems that this dictatorship does not stop at the border from Turkey. Erdogan tries to take the whole world into hostage for his own interests. The hillbillies are thinking that they can even put other countries under pressure. So it happens that they even not understand the freedom of press, which is one of the basic rights in the Western World.

So it has happened that the Austrian daily newspaper "Kronenzeitung" has reported about actual cases happened in Turkey. For promoting their business they have a display showing their captions at the airport in Vienna - Schwechat. At this display are got shown the caption "Who makes vacation in Turkey, supports Erdogan" and at the time the Turkish supreme court canceled made the sex with children legal by canceling the children abuse law: "Turkey allows sex with children"

The Turkish resort Alanya and the community Schwechat had 15 years long a city partnership. This partnership got now canceled from the Turkish partner for the reason of the promotion from the private newspaper "Kronenzeitung" and the private airport company "Flughafen Wien Betriebsgesellschaft". The community has no influence on both companies.

For the case you have a Turkish business partner you should be aware that this business partner will act the same way. He will simple cancel contracts for a reason where you even have no influence on it. With Erdogan as president from the Turkey the Turkish people are feeling themselves as the masters of the world. Such people are not really trustful in making business and you should verify as often as you can that your business partner is fulfilling his duties.

Everybody has the right cancelling a contract, but using a reason on what you have no influence for it shows you how trustful the coward has been.

My personal opinion about the attempted coup from the military against the Turkish president Erdogan is that it has been only a staged show or the Turkish military is so incompetent and unable to do something. The first case has given Erdogan only a reason to remove his opposition by putting them into jail as we have seen it by following the news. For the second case remains for me the question how bad is the Turkish military trained? How will such a military be able to protect a country and their borders?

Update September 5, 2016: The Turkey shows with the following decision again that they are already a dictatorship and not a trusted partner for the Western World. In the news gets found the following article:

By order of the Turkish Foreign Ministry an archeology team had to end its excavations in the ancient city of Ephesus west coast, like the Turkish news agency Dogan reported yesterday. The reason for this statement are the tensions between Vienna and Ankara.

The excavations were completed on 31 August - two months before the regular end of the project. The activities of the Austrian Archaeological Institute (ÖAI) in Ephesus has a very long tradition, such work will take place since 1895th participate annually to the 250 scientists from up to 20 countries to the archeological major project.

With this step, the freedom of science is continuing to decline.

Update September 8, 2016: Another case shows that Turkey is far away from a democracy and cannot be in any community. The broadcaster Deutsche Welle has made an interview with the Turkish Minister of Sport. After the interview the recordings got immediately confiscated from the Turkish authorities. It seems that the Turkish Minister of Sport does not know how the freedom of press is one of the basic rules in a free world.

Such a moves only shows that Turkey is not a serious partner for anything. Therefore, not one can offer such people joining any community.
