OBAMA CONDEMNS JIHADIST ATTACK ON MUSLIMS IN PAKISTAN - DOESN'T MENTION SIMULTANEOUS JIHADIST ATTACKS ON CHRISTIANS ANYWHERE...
US President Barack Obama has condemned as "outrageous" Saturday's deadly suicide bomb attack on a town in north-western Pakistan.OBAMA NEVER FAILS TO CONDEMN ATTACKS ON MUSLIMS.
A female bomber killed at least 43 people in the attack on a large crowd receiving food aid in Khar in the Bajaur region.
The town is in tribal areas close to the Afghan border - a Taliban and al-Qaeda stronghold.
People displaced by fighting had been getting food at a distribution centre.
Saturday's bombing was the latest in a string of recent attacks in Pakistan's north-west.
"I strongly condemn the outrageous terrorist attack in Khar, Pakistan," President Obama said.
"Killing innocent civilians outside a World Food Programme distribution point is an affront to the people of Pakistan, and to all humanity," he said.
Bajaur is a place where the army has carried out numerous operations and declared several times that they have cleared the area of militants.
But once again the militants have proved that they can strike back.
At the end of a very bloody year in Pakistan, there have been attacks on all types of targets. The militants haven't really shied away from anything.
We have had sporting venues hit - at the beginning of the year more than 100 died in an attack on a volleyball match - and mosques and marketplaces have also been targeted.
A lot of Pakistanis are now wondering how the army and the government are going to deal with this better in the future.
"The United States stands with the people of Pakistan in this difficult time, and will strongly support Pakistan's efforts to ensure greater peace, security and justice for its people."
WHY DOES OBAMA ALWAYS FAIL TO CONDEMN JIHADIST ATTACKS ON CHRISTIANS - AS IN RECENT NON-STOP ATTACKS BY JIHADISTS AGAINST NATIVE CHRISTIANS IN IRAQ AND YESTERDAY IN THE PHILIPPINES AND IN NIGERIA!!?!?
OCCAM'S RAZOR: I GUESS OBAMA LOVES MUSLIMS AND HATES CHRISTIANS.
UPDATE: MAYBE THIS EXPLAINS IT.
Police in northern Nigeria say that Muslim radical sect members have attacked two churches in the restive region.
Police chief Mohammed Abubakar told The Associated Press on Saturday that members of Boko Haram, a radical Muslim sect, attacked two churches in the city of Maiduguri on Friday evening.
Danjuma Akawu, secretary of Victory Baptist Church said about 30 men attacked his church Friday evening, killing five people.
Rev. Haskanda Jessu of Church of Christ in Nigeria said that three men attacked his church at the other end of the city, killing the security guard.
Police accuse Boko Haram of a rash of targeted killings in recent months.
In the central city of Jos Friday, 11 people also died after multiple bomb blasts. No one has claimed responsibility for the blasts.
HOW CAN LEFTISTS BLAME THIS ON THE JOOOOOOOZE OR THE GOP OR RUSH LIMBAUGH?
HMMMM... D'Y THINK THAT MAYBE THE LEFT WILL ONE DAY ACCEPT THAT GLOBAL JIHAD AIN'T ABOUT THIRD WORLD POVERTY OR WESTERN HEGEMONY, AND THAT IT'S THE ISLAM, STUPID!
I WON;T HOLD MY BREATH.
"THE ONLY GOOD MUSLIM PERSON IS A PERSON WHO IS A BAD MUSLIM" IN UNARGUABLY TRUE - UNLESS YOU WANNA ARGUE THAT MOHAMMAD WAS NOT A TRUE MUSLIM.
IOW: OSAMA IS NOT AN APOSTATE, MODERATE MUSLIMS ARE.
UNTIL MODERATE MUSLIMS ERADICATE JIHADISTS, ISLAM IS THE PROBLEM.I WON'T HOLD MY BREATH.
TO PROTECT THE FREE WORLD - WE WILL JUST HAVE TO DO IT OURSELVES, AND FIGHT THE LEFT WHILE WE'RE AT IT!
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
ON THIS DAY IN 1776, WASHINGTON SAVED THE FREE WORLD: WIKI:
Washington's crossing of the Delaware River, occurring on December 25, 1776 during the American Revolutionary War, was the first move in a planned surprise attack organized by George Washington against the Hessian forces in Trenton, New Jersey.
Planned in partial secrecy, Washington led a column of Continental Army troops across the icy Delaware River in a logistically challenging and potentially dangerous operation. Other planned crossings in support of the operation were either called off or ineffective, but this did not prevent Washington from successfully surprising and defeating the troops of Johann Rall quartered in Trenton. The army crossed the river back to Pennsylvania, this time burdened by prisoners and military stores taken as a result of the battle.
Washington's army then crossed the river a third time at the end of the year, under conditions made more difficult by the uncertain thickness of the ice on the river. They defeated British reinforcements under Lord Cornwallis on January 2, 1777, and defeated his rear guard at Princeton before retreating to winter quarters in Morristown, New Jersey.
... December, 1776.IT WAS A MIRACULOUS VICTORY. DIVINE PROVIDENCE.
That winter was particularly harsh and took its toll on the rag-tag army George Washington had assembled.
In November, Washington and his Continentals had been routed by the experienced British army, and morale was ebbing quickly. Most of the soldiers were living in log huts, struggling through bitter cold with little food and inadequate clothing. Some actually had no shoes. Worse still, most of their enlistments were expiring, which meant the American army was about to dissolve.
The Revolution was on the brink of collapse.
Just a few miles away, the King's Hessian mercenaries were garrisoned in Trenton, N.J., waiting out the winter in comfort. They were professionals, known for effectiveness and ruthlessness. Once spring came, everyone knew they and the British would march to Philadelphia, arrest the so-called Continental Congress and hang their traitorous leaders.
The smart money was on a quick end to American "independence."
So, Washington put all his chips on the table. The only thing keeping his crumbling army from early defeat was the icy Delaware River. But instead of sheltering behind it, he gathered his forces for a bold offensive strike across the river.
After dark on Christmas Day, about 2,700 American soldiers marshaled near McKonkey's Ferry. A unit made up of Massachusetts fishermen manned the small fleet of boats and started taking them across through heavy ice floes.
The weather was treacherous. Snow turned to freezing rain and sleet.
Horses slipped. Men cursed. Everyone was soaked.
Through it all, Washington watched silently from the shore. The password he'd given for that night was "Victory or Death."
The crossing operation finished at about 3 a.m., later than planned.
Two other landings further down river had failed, meaning Washington's detachment would be the only one to take on the Hessians.
Everything depended on marching nine miles through the muck, keeping some semblance of order and reaching the town in coordinated fashion without alerting the enemy.
Four men died from hypothermia on the approach.
They arrived on the outskirts at about 8 a.m. on Dec. 26, two hours behind schedule. Contrary to myth, the Hessians weren't drunk, but the miserable weather had kept them from posting sentries. As the Americans deployed north and south of town, Washington passed a message:"Tell General Sullivan to use the bayonet." Although they were surprised, the Hessians put up a fight. But it was over quickly. Twenty two Hessians were killed and 83 wounded. About 900 were captured.
Only two Americans died from combat, but many more from exposure and subsequent illness.
Their sacrifices on that cold, icy, wind-driven Christmas Day resulted in a dramatic victory, saved Washington's dwindling army, rescued the Revolution, and allowed generations of Americans to enjoy liberty.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS NATGEO DOC' ON EINSATZGRUPPE AND THE HIDDEN HOLOCAUST.
MORE JEWS IN THE SOVIET UNION WERE MURDERED BY THE NAZIS IN ONE MONTH IN 1941 THEN BLACKS WERE LYNCHED FROM 1865 TO 1965.
In Kovno 1,500 Jews were killed on the night of 25 June and 2,300 on the 26 June 1941.WIKI ON LYNCHINGS:
The following graph gives the number of lynchings and racially motivated murders in each decade from 1865 to 1965. Data for 1865–1869 and 1960-1965 are partial decades. 
This has been the coldest start to winter for the last 130 years, when records began.MEANWHILE ACROSS THEW SEA IN BRITAIN:
According to Met Eireann, Ireland’s meteorological service, December has officially been the coldest month ever on record.
Last Monday County Mayo recorded low temperatures of -17.2C (1F). Christmas Day may be the coldest ever
Saturday could be the coldest Christmas ever, according to the Met Office, surpassing a record set 14 years ago.
The record daytime temperature for the big day is -5.9C (21F) in 1996 in Glenlivet, Scotland, but the Met Office warned of ‘comparable’ temperatures on Christmas Day in Scotland and north-west England.
OOOOOO, TOOOO EFFIN' BAD: THE EUROSCUMSOCIALISTIC AGW ALARMISTS ARE GETTING ANOTHER BIG SNOWSTORM!
AND THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SHOVELS OR PLOWS OR DEICER BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED THE AGW ALARMISTS WHO TOLD THEM THE EARTH WAS GETTING WARMER.
FOR MY FRIENDS IN EUROPE:
LIKE THAT WILL HELP.
IF HE WANTS TO SUCCEED, THEN HE NEEDS TO ABANDON POSTMODERN LEFTISM.
The outcry over a proposed bus ad to protest Israeli actions in Gaza prompted King County Executive Dow Constantine on Friday to order the county's transit system not to accept it or any other new noncommercial advertising.Is this newspaper trying to incite simultaneously (they don't mention any of the Israelis hurt or killed)? I'm not sure, but it's good if the bus company owners are going to avoid politically charged ads like this in the future. After all, the atmosphere has become far too politically charged in the past decade. It's something that many people need to move away from.
A group called Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign paid nearly $1,800 to place the ad on 12 buses, starting Monday. The placard shows children and a demolished building with the caption, "Israeli War Crimes - Your tax dollars at work."
Monday is the two-year anniversary of Israel attacking Gaza. The three-week invasion, begun after Israel received incessant rocket barrages, left more than 1,400 Palestinians dead, including many civilians.
This clip says:
On Wednesday, Seattle Jewish community leaders held a meeting with senior officials from the King County Executive's office and Metro Transit management about the "potential threat to the Seattle-area Jewish community" after over 2,000 emails, and numerous organizations announced that counter advertisements would be initiated to promote Israel.The problem here is that it's not clear enough, but I assume they mean that anti-Israelists could try to attack the Jewish community because of these ads. They're right to be concerned.

IRELAND: We've endured coldest start to winter since records began
Dumfries Standard Wednesday
A HOUSING landlord fears hundreds of its tenants could be hit with burst pipes and heating failures on Christmas Day.
The switchboards at Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership were bombarded with more than 1,000 concerned callers on Monday mainly related to the Arctic weather which is gripping the region.
According to Ian Dawson, Met Office manager at the Eskdalemuir observatory, overnight temperatures on Monday dropped to -14°C – the coldest since 1981.
Thursday December 23 2010
IT has been the coldest start to a winter since records began more than 130 years ago.
New lows have been set across the country this month. Last Monday night in Co Mayo -17.2C was measured -- the coldest temperature ever recorded in Ireland during December.
But globally, things have rarely been so warm.
This has led many Irish people to ask an obvious question -- if global warming is really happening, why is there half a metre of snow on the ground?
One of the country's leading climatologists, John Sweeney, says the apparent contradiction results from confusing climate with weather.
["...confusing climate with weather..." = BWAHAHAHA!]
Treasure Coast residents could be waking to a record-setting cold Tuesday — and to the second coldest December on record so far, according to National Weather Service records.
Only the first part of December 1957 was colder.
This December is averaging 68.3 degrees in the daytime and 43.7 at night: about 10 degrees cooler than average. And Tuesday’s predicted early morning low of 27 degrees could drop that even farther.
And it’s not even winter until Dec. 21.
Tuesday’s high is to rise to 53 degrees before plunging back down 30 degrees overnight.
“I’m apprehensive,” said Stan Carter, 71, who planned to be outside periodically throughout Monday night, checking on MacArthur Farms’ 450 acres of citrus in St. Lucie County.
The company flooded the groves with water to help keep temperatures up in the groves. Early Tuesday he will be out, with a filet knife, to see the outcome.
A crunching sound as he cuts into fruit means the fruit’s interior froze, greatly lessening its market value. The National Weather Service says bird baths could be frozen early Tuesday, but not ponds and lakes.
But tropical vegetation in yards is expected to be hard hit, according to Indian River County Agricultural Extension Director Christine Kelly. That includes poinsettias.
Also there could be more damage to vegetable crops along the Treasure Coast, officials said.
Only the barrier islands from Vero Beach south may be spared freezing because of the nearby warmer waters, according to the National Weather Service. However the wind chill through the Treasure Coast could make nighttime lows feel like they are in the teens or mid 20s.

GAZA (Reuters) - Israel carried out a series of air strikes in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, Palestinian officials and witnesses said, after militants from the Hamas-ruled territory fired rockets into southern Israel.Unsurprisingly, Reuters pretends the Hamas is really trying to prevent these attacks. But it's just a case of their lying in wait for when they consider the perfect moment to attack. Reuters also goes the PC route by using "militant" in place of "terrorist".
No one was reported killed in any of the strikes that targeted a Hamas training camp, where two gunmen were wounded, as well as smuggling tunnels along Gaza's border with Egypt and other, unpopulated areas, Hamas officials and witnesses said.
An Israeli military spokesman said at least 14 rockets had been launched at Israel from the Gaza Strip in the past two days.
A rocket that later struck an Israeli farming community on the Mediterranean coast lightly wounded one person who was taken to hospital, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. Media reports said the rocket landed near a kindergarten.
A spokesman for the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades militant group, an offshoot of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement, claimed responsibility for the latest rocket attack and said it was fired in retaliation for Israel's air strikes.
Hamas leaders have tried to curb rocket fire at Israel from Gaza, but smaller groups continue to carry out such attacks.
Israel's military said more than 200 cross-border missiles, rockets and mortars have been fired from Gaza this year.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will issue a public, formal, and official call in upcoming days for US President Barack Obama to release Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard, the Prime Minister's Office announced in a press release issued Tuesday.Here's the problem: Obama likely wouldn't do it, if at all, without huge concessions on Israel's part. And that's the really severe difficulty in getting Pollard released.
Netanyahu will issue the call at the behest of Pollard, whose wife Esther delivered him a request from her husband at the Knesset on Monday.
"I intend to continue to act with determination to free Pollard, both because of the ethical obligation Israel has toward him and because Jonathan should have the right to live with his family and rehabilitate his health after so many years in jail,” Netanyahu said in the press release.
Sources close to Netanyahu said he had consulted with American officials and his advisers about whether issuing the formal call could be helpful or whether it would do more harm than good.
From the New York Times: U.S. Proposes Rules on Raising Insurance Premiums
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said on Tuesday that it would require health insurance companies to disclose and justify any increases of 10 percent or more in the premiums they charge next year.MORE CREEPING SOCIALISM:
State or federal officials will review the increases to determine if they are unreasonable, the administration said in proposing regulations to enforce the requirement.
Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of Health and Human Services, said the review of premiums would “help rein in the kind of excessive and unreasonable rate increases that have made insurance unaffordable for so many families.”
The new health care law, signed in March by President Obama, calls for the annual review of “unreasonable increases in premiums for health insurance coverage.” The law did not define unreasonable.
Under the proposed rules, insurers seeking rate increases of 10 percent or more in the individual or small group market next year must publicly disclose the proposed increases and the justification for them.
“Such increases are not presumed unreasonable, but will be analyzed to determine whether they are unreasonable,” the administration said.
Starting in 2012, the federal government will set a separate threshold for each state, reflecting its cost trends, and insurers will have to disclose rate increases above that level.
Under the proposed regulation, the federal government will evaluate each state’s procedures for analyzing .

ROME (AP) — An explosive device was found Tuesday in a subway car in Rome, Italian news agencies reported.A Christmas attack on Rome, the center of Christianity for the Western World.
The ANSA and Apcom news agency said the device was found Tuesday inside a train during a stop in Rebibbia, on the outskirts of Rome.
ANSA cited a press release by the Atac company that runs the subway. Nobody was immediately available at Atac.
Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno said it was "worrying."
"Bomb disposal experts are looking into what it is — whether it's a dangerous device that was capable of exploding or an inactive object," Alemanno was quoted as saying by Apcom.
The area was cleared of people, according to the reports.
Apcom said the device had been left in a grocery bag underneath a seat, and was spotted by the conductor in the morning.

The searches, which are designed to be non-intrusive, came in the wake of recent terror plots and the same morning that an explosive device was found under a subway car seat in Rome.
The searches started at 7:30 a.m. and lasted about an hour at the Braddock Metro station.

The repeal of DADT passed because the USA was blackmailed by the source of Wikileaks: they told the feds that they would leak THE BIG ONE if it didn't pass this session.
After all, this was Manning's original motivation.
Maybe he had/(has) a "friend" on the inside who has/d a REAL BIG SECRET they blackmailed us with?
And the FBI/CIA/Obama Administration used this to convince a few GOP senators on the fence to vote to repeal.
YEAH YEAH YEAH: far-fetched. It's just that the repeal seemed dead and then came back to life and all this COINCIDENTALLY with the Wikileaks.
THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES.

Apparently, even the mere mention of the word "ham" during a geography lesson can offend Moslems.
You can't make this stuff up.
From "Spain: Muslims sue teacher for speaking about ham in class" at Tea And Politics:
According to the account of the facts, the teacher was explaining the different climates in a geography class and cited the village of Trevelez due to its cold and dry climate. According to the newspaper account, "as a story, the teacher told his students that such a climate was conducive to making hams (this refers to the procedure that it's necessary between the pig is killed and the ham is actually ready to be eaten). Then the student asked the teacher not to speak of hams since it offended him, because he was a Muslim. "Cádiz is, of course, in Andalusia, Spain. Read about the history of Cádiz HERE. Excerpt:
According to "El Diario de Cádiz", the teacher "is accused of being the author of an alleged crime of abuse of workers, also alleging racist and xenophobic motives. " His school colleagues can't believe what has happened and speak about the impeccable record of teaching reported.
Cádiz is the most ancient city still standing in Western Europe. Traditionally, its founding is dated to 1104 BC...Can the West ever get the followers of Islam to understand the sentiment of that nursery rhyme about sticks and stones? Apparently not, especially if Moslems are recolonizing Andalusia and if such frivolous law suits are filed.
Later, the Greeks knew the city as Gadira or Gadeira. According to Greek legend, Gadir was founded by Hercules after performing his fabled tenth labor...
Under Moorish rule between 711 and 1262, the city was called Qādis (Arabic قادس), from which the modern Spanish name, Cádiz, was derived. The Moors were finally ousted by Alphonso X of Castile in 1262....

Copenhagen expects white Christmas
During the last 109 years Copenhagen has had seven white Christmases, that is a 6 percent rate.(YOU MAY RECALL THAT IN 2009 THIS UNUSUAL SNOW IN COPENHAGEN COINCIDED WITH THE UN'S IPCC MEETING IN COPENHAGEN!)World leaders flying into Copenhagen today to discuss a solution to global warming will first face freezing weather as a blizzard dumped 10 centimeters (4 inches) of snow on the Danish capital overnight.
“Temperatures will stay low at least the next three days,” Henning Gisseloe, an official at Denmark’s Meteorological Institute, said today by telephone, forecasting more snow in coming days. “There’s a good chance of a white Christmas.” . . .
(YOU MAY ALSO RECALL THAT THIS YEAR'S IPCC MEETING IN CANCUN ALSO RAN INTO EXTREMELY COLDER THAN NORMAL WEATHER!)
WELL, COPENHAGEN IS UNDER SNOW AGAIN - NEARLY TWO FEET!
SO THEY MAY GET ANOTHER WHITE CHRISTMAS - MAKING IT 2 IN A ROW - AND THIS HASN'T HAPPENED FOR A LONG LONG LONG LONG TIME.

"He arrived in Britain in January 1995 and claimed asylum, living off benefits with his wife and five children. His asylum claim was initially refused because his story was not credible but he appealed and was granted refugee status in November 1998. On December 19 2001 he was arrested under immigration rules which said he was “an active supporter of various international terrorist groups, including those with links to Osama bin Laden’s terrorist network.” "

Police early Sunday morning found the body of Christine Logan, who held an American passport, 16 hours after two Arabs stabbed her and wounded a friend. Police have clamped a gag order on the murder, which authorities now believe was a terrorist attack. Earlier, they were equally suspicious that the attack was criminal, although they still have not ruled the possibility.We have to hope the hunting party that's been formed to search for the murderers will find the monsters. The victim's friend is very lucky to be alive.
Logan and British immigrant Kaye Susan Wilson, a tour guide, hiked in a dry river bed near Beit Shemesh, west of Jerusalem, after Wilson had completed a tour with a group. Although Wilson's and Logan's names do not sound Jewish, their religion is not known. Wilson rents a home at the religious-secular Givat Ze'ev community, located west of Jerusalem on Highway 443. Logan's residence is not known at this time.
Wilson may have saved her own life by pretending she was dead until the attackers left the scene after stabbing her in her back and stomach. She told police that two Arabs had bound her hands and that after they left, she reached a nearby parking lot, where passersby called for an ambulance and police.
Wilson was rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem, where she was treated for serious wounds and is in the ICU, but.her life is not in danger.
RELIAPUNDIT ADDS: FULL ROUND UP AT MEMEORANDUM:
Gili Cohen / Haaretz:I'M NOT HOLDING MY BREATH...
Body of U.S. tourist found near Jerusalem; police suspect terror attack — Christine Logan disappeared on Saturday, when she and a Jerusalem-area friend were stabbed by assailants while hiking at an archaeological site; her friend, Susan Kaye Wilson, was hospitalized in moderate condition.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and several of his top aides have said repeatedly they are pursuing alternatives, arguing that there is little hope at this stage that meaningful negotiations on the terms of statehood can resume.
The main fallback strategy involves seeking recognition from as many countries as possible of a Palestinian state in the West Bank, Gaza and east Jerusalem, the territories Israel captured in the 1967 Mideast War.
Recently, Brazil and Argentina granted such recognition, and Palestinian negotiator Nabil Shaath told reporters Saturday that he expects three more countries, including Uruguay, to follow suit.
He said he also expects three more European countries to upgrade Palestinian representation in coming weeks, after Norway took that step earlier this week. Spain, Portugal and France have already done so.
It's the antisemitism stupid.
The fact is that Kurds and Basques and Catalans all have a VASTLY SUPERIOR claim for independent nationhood than so-called "Palestinians" These other ethnic groups all have their own languages and culture; the "Palestinian" Arabs do not - they are Arabs, PERIOD.
Once again, Jews are being treated in a way no other people on Earth are treated - or ever have been.
BESIDES: There is a "Palestinian" Arab state - and has been for nearly 70 years; it's called Jordan. Jordan was created by the British by chopping of 80% of British Palestine and giving it to an Arab Monarch from the Arabian peninsula who was sympathetic to the Brits. There is no such culture as Jordanian and no language called Jordanian and no history that can be call led "Jordanian" that predates this arbitrary act by Britain.
Look it up.
AND ANOTHER THING: This will only encourage more terror from the Arabs and Muslims and Kurds, et al, etc because it rewards terror.
And it also reveal deep self-loathing by these Western nations, nations trapped by postmodern leftism into thinking Western Colonialism was bad and needs to be compensated by sacrificing Israel, and by withdrawing from the Third World - the "unconnected wolrd".
Sacrificing the Sudetenland didn't stop Hitler, and giving Arabs yet another nation ( and a springboard for more terror against Israel --- like Gaza and Southern Lebanon) won't stop global jihad/WW4.
To end Third World poverty and ignorance we need to eradicate socialism and Islam - and expand industrialization and capitalism and trade - all the things the Left hates. PROOF HERE.
Preachers at the Luton Islamic Centre told last week how they had tackled Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, 28, the suicide bomber who blew himself up in Stockholm last weekend, over his extremist views. However, the centre’s website carries a link to a lecture by Dr Bilal Philips, a Muslim preacher who was barred from entering Britain by the home secretary in July because of his extremist views. Philips’s speech includes a passage during which he says that a person who kills him or herself is motivated by different instincts to those of a suicide bomber. “When you look at the mind of the suicide bomber, it’s a different intention altogether,” he says. Suicide is generally considered to be against Islamic law.
