Mutilation
Young girls born in Europe to immigrant families from Africa are being subjected to ritual genital mutilation, and authorities are doing little to discourage it, a leading women's rights activist warned Thursday.

Palestinian, Bloody-Handed Lynching Icon, Finally Meets Justice
Our friend papijoe at Marlowe's Shade notices a partially-satisfying conclusion to a sordid tale:
The man whose savagery in the 2001 Ramallah lynching was broadcast worldwide has finally been brought to justice.

An Israeli military court handed a life-sentence Sunday to the man who proudly displayed his blood-drenched hands after he joined a lynch-mob of other Arabs and carried out the grisly murder of Cpl. Vadim Norzitch, one of the two Israelis killed in the lynching at a Ramallah police station in 2001.
Like papijoe, I wish they had a death penalty, or that Aziz Salha (yim'ach shmo) had met an equally grisly end to the one he inflicted.

French Jihadis
The two teenage friends hardly seemed like Islamic radicals. They smoked marijuana, drank beer, listened to rap and wore jeans.

Yet the pair of French Muslims died insurgents in Iraq — one a suicide car bomber, say relatives who traced the young men's path from the slums of Paris through a religious school in Syria to the fight against the U.S.-led coalition next door.

Driving a Plane
I love this kind of challenge to religious authorities.
A Saudi woman is set to challenge religious conservatives by becoming the first female pilot in a country where women are not even allowed to drive.

Hanadi Hindi, who trained for a pilot's license in neighboring Jordan, has signed a contract with billionaire prince Alwaleed bin Talal's private airline, the prince said.

"Recruiting Captain Hindi as a pilot ... is a major step in the employment of women and in their more active participation in Saudi society," Prince Alwaleed said in a statement.

Hindi is due to start work by the middle of next year, after completing her training, in a move which directly challenges Saudi Arabia's ultra-conservative religious authorities.

Crazy at Claremont
Maybe I’ll quit complaining about the radical liberal doctrine I hear every day on campus. At least it’s not being painted on my car as part of a class assignment. A professor at Pomona College teaching a course called "Political Activism in Film and Media" assigned her students to "exercise their political voice." Some of the students decided to paint anti-SUV slogans to fulfill the assignment. Where did they paint the slogans? Why, on SUV's in the school parking lot. This vandalism naturally upset the administration... until the source was discovered.
Oh, it was a class assignment! So, the mystery is solved and everyone should relax, because this was done by people of good will. Ho ho ho, jolly ole’ environmentalist vandals. Nothing to worry about here, just part of a class assignment!
Read a lively and amusing article about the role of the professor (did she know???) and the tepid response of the college. Professor inadvertently approves crime

The Jewish Enigma
I loved this article, it's a sweet, funny, love confession to Israel.
Where they turned a place the size of Wales, which was just another regular barren Arab desert, into a Garden of Eden overnight, or at least over a decade. Where they came straight off the ships from Auschwitz and Belsen and Drancy and simply rolled up their sleeves and shook their heads and said, “Oyyyy . . .?

Where they created Tel Aviv — the first Jewish city in 2,000 years — by simply saying it was so, a few dozen ragged-ass Hebrew re-settlers, standing on some sand in 1909.

Where they don’t even WANT your help, the obdurate, stubborn, stiff-necked f****** —
My nation of heroes, my chosen people . . .
