Alí Mesnaoui, (…) explained, in his conference “Science’ basis in Islam”, that this religion “socialised science”. In fact, he informed that science, who had always been a priviledge for aristocrats and priests, transformed into something common for all people [thanks to Islam] (?). Islam reached everyone after the contact with civilizations such as Greek, Indian or Chinese ones.
Surely science reached everyone with Islam: that’s why Islamic societies are so advanced… 😦
Five years after March 11th, which made Spain a target of the Islamist terror, Interior Minister has stated that “Spain is now a source of Human Resources for future terrorists”, “situated in the 1st place in the ranking of their preferred recruitement’s places for Al-Qaeda in Europe, and, at the same time, it continues to be a target of international terrorism”.
Hmm, just tell this to Obama. Giving money to Hamas is not the solution cannot be considered a way to show respect for Muslims.
“People don’t know it, but complete trains are being assaulted by gangs of 30 Maghrebies who hang stones from bridges to throw them into the driver’s cabin. We are seizing swords, crossbows, daggers”, a private watch-man states.
No one has confirmed or denied these reports. So is this true or not?
Chinese President Hu Jintao met with the visiting Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero in Beijing on Saturday.
Hu said, as this year marked the 35th anniversary of China-Spain bilateral ties, China is willing to work with Spain to strengthen bilateral cooperation for joint development. Hu expressed hopes of further high-level exchanges among governments, parliaments, parties and local agencies between the two countries in the future.
He also urged enterprises of both countries to increase mutual investments and take active measures for trade balance. Exchanges and cooperation in the areas of culture, education, science and technology, sports and tourism are also expected to expand, said the President.
In addition, Hu stressed the two countries should strengthen negotiations and cooperation on important international issues like global finance, climate change, anti-terrorism and food safety, so as to safeguard the common interests of both countries.
Zapatero said the Spanish government attaches great importance to its relationship with China and is willing to play its role in promoting a Sino-European relationship in the future. China and Spain established an all-round strategic partnership to put forward bilateral cooperation in 2005.
Even if it’s logical to find new allies and to work hard for new commercial partners, I believe the moment is not the most appropriate one, with Zapatero begging for a seat in the G-20 meeting.
During protests by both supporters and opponents of the abortion ship operated by the Dutch group “Women on Waves,” which docked last week in Valencia, Spain, feminist organizations openly called for church burnings and handed out matches to their followers.
The presence of the “ship of death” in Valencia last week led to one of the largest pro-life protests in the city’s history, with large numbers of people voicing opposition each day to the ship’s services, which include bringing women into international waters to undergo abortions according to Holland’s liberal abortion laws.
Respecting religious freedom… ever
Prosecutor’s Office from Spanish Supreme Tribunal has asked its Criminal Court to modify the doctrine it stated over March 11th bombings in the revision of the National Court’s sentence in the “Operation Nova” case. The latter is the most important police operation against Islamist terrorism carried out after March 11th bombings.
With that doctrine, considers the Prosecutor, all of the 20 detained in that operation could be freed, after the National Court imposed on them punishments of nearly 143-years of jail time. National Court found them to be a “extremely indoctrinated radical islamist” cell, but which hadn’t taken action yet.
In the sentence of the March 11th bombings, the Supreme Tribunal settled the doctrine that it’s not sufficient to prove that the accused has a radical ideology, but it’s necessary to prove he has already taken some kind of action or, at least, that he has decided to take that action.
Prosecutor’s Office maintains now that “it could be very dangerous” to apply that doctrine to International Jihadist terrorism, “whose objectives should be aborted on time, before they decide to pass from menaces to act”. It also asks the Supreme Tribunal, “based on reasons of elemental caution“, not to settle jurisprudence with a new sentence that, could, at least, cause the failure of “operation Nova“.
Criminal Court’s Supreme Tribunal has accelerated the process, taking into consideration that next October 18th ends the time of preventive prison and, if there is no sentence by that time, the condemned would be freed.
And why not contradicting their ideology? And why did they applaud the March 11th’s sentence and now they see so much “danger”? Weren’t dangerous the Islamists who killed 192 people on March 11th bombings? Were they more dangerous than those who, by now, hadn’t killed?
By the way, today is October, 7th, anniversary of the battle of Lepanto, fought between the Saint League (Spain, the Pope, Genoa and Venezia, mostly) and the Ottomans in 1571. It’s a good ocassion to see how everything has evolved.
