Somalia: Aid agencies banned on charges of “misappropriating funds, collecting data, and promoting secularism, immorality and the ‘degrading values of democracy in an Islamic country'”

People will die, and al-Shabaab does not care. Controlling the flow of aid allows them to starve out resistance. The charge of “misappropriating funds” is particularly curious. It’s certainly not al-Shabaab’s money that groups like UNICEF and the World Health Organization were spending, but clearly, al-Shabaab has made it their business to mind the business […]

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland recently responded to questions about Sharia forming the basis of legislation by saying it “has a broad application and is understood differently in different places and by different commentators.” That line is intended to be a discussion-stopper. Indeed, almost any time a concerned non-Muslim notices an unpleasant tenet of Sharia […]

U.K.: 3500 girls in London at risk for female genital mutilation each year
