Stained pillows, dog bowls for water, contraceptives and drugs in IS sex slave prison

Current version: September 2, 2016

A harrowing video showing the poor living conditions of ISIS sex slaves in the terror group's caliphate in Syrian city of Manbij has emerged online.

The video starts with a man, speaking in Arabic, narrating how Syrian rebels discovered the place where Islamic State militants rape their sex slaves. The man then enters the place and points towards a room where the sex slaves are forced to live.

The video then moves on to show a room full of filthy cushions, dirty and stained bed sheets and peeled walls. Also, on the walls something is written in Arabic which is assumed to be written by the women living there.

Syrian rebels who came across the ISIS prison said they found contraceptives, drugs as well as sexual stimulants in one of the rooms.

Terming ISIS prisons as the worst in the world, Syrian fighters said they also found some of the most violent tools of torture used by ISIS.

In one of the rooms, the rebels also saw two bowls filled with water, placed on the floor. The bowls, according to them, are meant for women prisoners who drink water in them and sometimes even eat in those bowls.

The video ends with some of the Syrian fighters guarding the entrance of the place. It is unclear whether the rebels have sealed the place.

ISIS militants have been known for their horrifying ways while dealing with their women prisoners. A number of Yazidi women, who had escaped from the clutches of ISIS, had described how the terror group used different methods to keep them away from pregnancy -- including oral sex and injectable contraception.

Egypt confirms mass death sentences for police killings

Current version: February 3, 2015

By: Nweze Chidubem

An Egyptian court Monday confirmed death sentences against 183 men convicted of killing 13 policemen, in a verdict the European Union denounced as a violation of the country's human rights obligations.

The verdict came as another court announced that deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi would stand trial on February 15 in an espionage case -- the fourth trial he is facing.

The policemen were killed in an attack on a police station in Kerdasa, a town on the outskirts of Cairo, on August 14, 2013.

The attack took place on the same day that security forces killed hundreds of demonstrators in clashes as they dismantled two massive protest camps in Cairo supporting Morsi.

The court had in December issued a preliminary verdict against 188 defendants in a mass trial, of whom two were acquitted on Monday while one, a minor, was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Two more were already deceased.

Monday's verdict, which can be appealed, came after the initial sentences were sent to the grand mufti, the government's official interpreter of Islamic law, for ratification.

Since the army deposed Morsi on July 3, 2013, at least 1,400 people have been killed in a police crackdown on protests, mostly Islamists supporting the ousted leader.

Hundreds of his supporters have been sentenced to death in swift mass trials which the United Nations says were "unprecedented in recent history".

"Today's decision of a court in Egypt to sentence 183 defendants to death following a mass trial is in violation of Egypt's international human rights obligations," the EU's foreign service said in a statement, reiterating the bloc's categoric opposition to capital punishment.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the United States was "deeply concerned" by the decision.

"It simply seems impossible that a fair review of evidence and testimony could be achieved through mass trials," she said.

Rights group Amnesty International said the decision was "outrageous" and "an example of the bias of the Egyptian criminal justice system".

"Issuing mass death sentences whenever the case involves the killing of police officers now appears to be near-routine policy, regardless of facts and with no attempt to establish individual responsibility," said Amnesty's Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui.

Fourth trial for Morsi

Rights groups and critics of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the former army chief who ousted Morsi, say authorities are using the judiciary as an arm to repress any form of dissent, including from secular activists.

Morsi and several top leaders of his blacklisted Muslim Brotherhood are in custody and facing several trials on charges punishable by death.

Egypt's first freely elected president is already facing three trials. The fourth will open on February 15 for allegedly leaking "classified documents" to Qatar and the Doha-based Al-Jazeera network.

Last week an Egyptian court set May 16 for a verdict in another espionage case in which Morsi and 35 others are accused of allegedly conspiring with foreign powers, including Iran, to destabilise Egypt.

Separately, another court is to deliver a verdict on April 21 in the trial of Morsi and 14 others for inciting the killing of protesters in clashes outside the presidential palace in December 2012.

He is also on trial over a jailbreak and attacks on police stations during the 2011 uprising that ousted president Hosni Mubarak.

Also on Monday, an appeals court ordered a retrial in a case involving the murder of a police officer during a firefight with Islamists in Kerdasa in September 2013 when security forces stormed the town to flush out Islamists who had taken control of it.

In August 2014, a lower court had confirmed death sentences on 12 of the 23 defendants tried on charges of killing Major General Nabil Faraj.

The court said seven of those sentenced to death, and who are in custody, will be retried along with four of those who were given life. The other convicted men are fugitives.

Educated women are sexually less attractive, so let's stop that nonsense of sending every girl to school.

Feminist rule in Europe makes second-generation male Muslim immigrants suicide bombers. They die for sexual justice. Why do Western politicians call suicide bombers cowards? To sacrifice one's own life is the ultimate in courage.


Put a stop to thriving fake medicines market

Current version: February 1, 2010

By: Masego Seleke

Our sister publication, The Standard on Sunday, ran a chilling story on the prevalence of counterfeit drugs and a booming covert as well as underground business in herbal remedies.

Medical care the world over is prohibitively expensive and many people are increasingly turning to generic drugs and herbal medicine. As a result, unscrupulous traders have cashed in on this desperation to circumvent the system and sell fakes repackaged as genuine medicine.

Denials by Kenya Medical Supplies Agency and Pharmacy and Poisons Board that some of their members are working in cahoots with these merchants of death do not wash.

And since Kenya has liberalised its market on drug sales, the only sure path would be to intervene at the point of origin — during importation. These bodies alongside Customs, Kenya Bureau of Standards, Ministry of Trade and Industry can ensure the efficacy of the drugs reaching our shores.

On death’s door

Express guidelines must be drawn up to ensure authenticity and internationally accepted rquirements on composition, toxicity levels, quality, labelling and rules of origin.

Legislation should also be tightened to ensure stiff sentencing to act as deterrent for crooks exploiting cracks in the system to put gullible and desperate patients on death’s door.

More alarming is that counterfeiters are targetting the most commonly administered antibiotics and Aids remedies. They should not be allowed to get away with murder.

Feminism is about the domestication of men. Feminism wants to force men into being docile, so women have all sexual rights, at no risk. That will be all the less feasible the more violence there is in a society.

America and Europe are evil. Let them self-destruct by fostering sexual hatred. They will kill each other, and the system will kill itself.
