Default Mali: Students Flee Sharia in Northern Schools

allAfrica.com: Mali: Students Flee Sharia in Northern Schools
6/22/2012

Quote:
Boubacar Sissoko, a schoolmaster in Timbuktu - a UNESCO World Heritage site - said the Islamists "terrorize the children" with the new laws. "They have introduced their own programme and new subjects like Islamic education, or collective prayers that they themselves conduct," he said. The arrival of the Islamists in the north in March and the unrest that followed have left only 107 students out of 429 at the school.
Quote:
Although schools have taken the brunt of the draconian Islamic laws, residents can also no longer watch television, men cannot shave their beard or use tobacco. On 20 June, a Timbuktu couple was flogged 100 times in public for having a child out of wedlock, sparking condemnation by shocked and angry residents.

"I was really shocked to see these poor youths undergo such punishment simply because of having a child. It made me cry. It's a shame," said Mariama, a schoolgirl.
Quote:
But the Islamists defend their laws.

"Sharia has to be applied whether the people like it or not, we will enforce it. We are not asking anybody's opinion. We are not democrats. We are servants of Allah who demands Sharia," Sanda Ould Boumama, Ansar Dine's spokesman in Timbuktu, told IRIN.
emphasis added
Just a little more information for the slower learners, who sadly will be treated to nonsense about the supposedly harmless nature of Sharia by fantasists following the recent Egyptian elections.

Nope.

We recognized a mindless baiting/bashing thread when we see it and have long since realized that REAL discussion is not desired.

Anybody, liberal, conservative, public retard or civilian, who defends the fanatical monkeys, deserves a lo-o-o-o-ong vacation in Mali, or fanatic Islamic paradise of his or her choice.

All you have to do to have a discussion, is cite evidence that I'm wrong. That is, don't just repeat silly, vapid politically correct nonsense that flies in the face of Sharia Doctrine, Islamic Jurisprudence, current prominent examples of implemented Sharia, and Reality itself.

Note that I constantly cite demonstrable sources, and material written by Muslims for Muslims, and that you do not.

Just saying the rotten fish smell like roses doesn't make it so.

You guys discuss it amongst yourselves. Let us know what you decided to do about it.

Oh, I imagine that I'll just watch history repeat itself. The Visigoths are no threat to the Empire.

Mali: Islamists seize Gao from Tuareg rebels

28 June 2012 Last updated at 02:28



Islamists in Mali's north want to see Sharia law administered across the region

Islamist forces in northern Mali have seized the town of Gao after clashes with Tuareg-led rebels.

At least 20 people have been killed and the political leader of the Tuareg-led movement has been wounded.

Residents say the Islamists linked to al-Qaeda took over buildings occupied by the Tuaregs in the town - including their headquarters.

Tension has been growing since the Tuaregs and Islamists jointly took control of northern Mali after a coup.

A spokesman for the Tuareg National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad (MNLA) told the BBC's Thomas Fessy that Bilal Ag Cherif was wounded during Tuesday's clashes.

His life is not in danger and he has been taken to a neighbouring country for treatment.

The fighting in Gao followed a day of protest after a local official was killed on Monday.

Residents said heavy weapons were being used.

A doctor in Gao told the BBC that most of the people who were killed and injured seemed to have been armed,
but a number of civilians had also been caught in the fighting.

In March, the Islamists and MNLA advanced together through northern Mali after the government was overthrown.

Our correspondent says that they proved unable to reach an agreement after they took control of the region.

After weeks of an unlikely alliance between the Tuareg-led fighters seeking a secular independent north and Islamist rebels who want to impose Islamic Sharia law across nothern Mali, this latest violence clearly illustrates the balance of power in the region, he adds.

More than 300,000 people have fled northern Mali since the rebels took the territory in the days following the 22 March coup.

On the other Hand!

Winston Churchill addressed this strategy when he said “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”

Start seeing that clearly all over Europe now!

I'd add to Sir Winston's analogy by saying that the modern Appeasers are also delusional, and have convinced themselves that the crocodile is merely a rascally puppy.
