Sweden to Deport Iranian Christian?

http://blogs.cbn.com/globallane/archive/2012/11/12/sweden-to-deport-iranian-chirstian.aspx ” Iranian Christian Reza Jebbari faces imminent deportation from Sweden, despite the possibility that his return to Iran could lead to his imprisonment or death. Jebbari is a former Muslim who converted to Christianity during a visit to Baku, Azerbaijan, in 2010. He applied for assylum [sic] when he arrived in Sweden two years ago, but the Swedish Immigration Service and the Migration Court rejected the request. The assylum denial came despite evidence that Jebbari actively participates in church activities, including street evangelism on a regular basis. He’s appeared in church plays and sings in the choir at Tensta Church. Apparently the court questioned the sincerity of Jebbari’s conversion and said he failed to convince them that his life would be in danger if he were sent back to Iran. This, despite assurances from Jebbari’s pastor that, “He has a deep Christian identity, as much as I have.” RRD: We have just had a very public,high profile case of a Christian–Pastor Nadarkhani–who narrowly avoided death & now we are told that this man would not be in danger if returned??!

”I aim to misbehave” redux.Now scientists seek drug to ”cure racist thoughts” #tcot #tlot

RRD:Previously I posted on the ”morality pill” concept.

See:

I aim to misbehave :Manipulating morals: scientists target drugs that improve behaviour The Guardian – fightingstatism

Source link:

Manipulating morals: scientists target drugs that improve behaviour

http://m.guardian.co.uk/science/2011/apr/04/morality-drugs-improve-ethical-behaviour?cat=science&type=article

And said:

”Those who ignore the warnings of science fiction are doomed to live in dystopia.”

Now it seems that there is a ”cure” for Racism.Or at least for ”unconscious racism”.
And who could be opposed to such mind altering drugs?

So long as they’re voluntary,of course.

They would be voluntary,wouldn’t they?

I mean you can’t imagine a society compelling people to take such drugs,by arguing that hate crimes are a ”public health risk”,& after all, hate crimes start with hateful thoughts.

Surely you’re not defending racism,are you Robert?

One wonders how many films must be made on the dangers of mind control:Serenity,28 days later,A Clockwork Orange?

No I don’t think such efforts will succeed.

They have already been tried to no avail.

But I do think that such efforts will lead to the violation of individual rights.

Quotes: Serenity (2005)

http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0379786/quotes?qt=qt0433042

……”Dr. Caron: These are just a few of the images we’ve recorded. And you can see, it wasn’t what we thought. There’s been no war here and no terraforming event. The environment is stable. It’s the Pax. The G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate that we added to the air processors. It was supposed to calm the population, weed out aggression. Well, it works. The people here stopped fighting. And then they stopped everything else. They stopped going to work, they stopped breeding, talking, eating. There’s 30 million people here, and they all just let themselves die”….

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: [RE: What they found on Miranda] This record here’s about twelve years old. Parliament buried it and it stayed buried until River here dug it up. This is what they were afraid she knew. And they were right to fear. There’s a universe of folk who’re gonna know it, too. Someone *has to* speak for these people. [pause] Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Y’all got on this boat for different reasons, but y’all come to the same place. So now I’m asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this – they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They’ll swing back to the belief that they can make people… better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin’. I aim to misbehave.”

Quotes: A Clockwork Orange (1971)

http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0066921/quotes

”Prison Chaplain: Choice! The boy has not a real choice, has he? Self-interest, the fear of physical pain drove him to that grotesque act of self-abasement. The insincerity was clear to be seen. He ceases to be a wrongdoer. He ceases also to be a creature capable of moral choice.

Minister: Padre, there are subtleties! We are not concerned with motives, with the higher ethics. We are concerned only with cutting down crime and with relieving the ghastly congestion in our prisons. He will be your true Christian, ready to turn the other cheek, ready to be crucified rather than crucify, sick to the heart at the thought of killing a fly. Reclamation! Joy before the angels of God! The point is that it works.”…

Stop indefinite detention bill s.1867 unless civil liberties concerns are addressed #tcot #tlot #p2 #teaparty #tpot

RRD:Senate bill S.1867 is the Defense Authorization bill for this year.It contains a provision permitting indefinite detention of alleged terrorists by the U.S.Military.Though the purpose of the bill seems to be to ensure that the war against Al-Qaeda is waged as a war,the language of the bill raises profound civil liberties concerns.Will the President be able to have the Military detain indefinitely, anyone he declares to be a member of Al-Qaeda,even if the person is a U.S. citizen and captured on U.S. soil? Because unless there is a full scale insurrection on U.S. soil,I would oppose giving the President,or the Military(which is directly controlled by the White House)the power to hold American citizens,seized on U.S. soil,indefinitely,without any court oversight.It would make it too easy to just toss a innocent person(possibly a critic of the President)in jail for life.I don’t think that is the intention of the bill’s sponsors,but bills of this nature should be throughly vetted.Until I’m assured that the civil liberties concerns are addressed I’ll oppose it.

Muslim Brotherhood plan on “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within”

An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America :: Archive Documents :: The Investigative Project on Terrorism

http://www.investigativeproject.org/document/id/20

…”Summary: This May 1991 memo was written by Mohamed Akram, a.k.a. Mohamed Adlouni, for the Shura Council of the Muslim Brotherhood. In the introductory letter, Akram referenced a “long-term plan…approved and adopted” by the Shura Council in 1987 and proposed this memo as a supplement to that plan and requested that the memo be added to the agenda for an upcoming Council meeting. Appended to the document is a list of all Muslim Brotherhood organizations in North America as of 1991.”….

From the Document:

….”The process of settlement is a “Civilization-Jihadist Proecess” with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal. “….
