Femicide: Evil perpetrated against girls by women (typically through abortion and infanticide.)

The statistics are sickening. The UN reports approximately 200 million girls in the world today are ‘missing’. India and China are said to eliminate more female infants than the number of girls born in the US each year.

Lianyungang in China has the worst infant gender ratio on record with 163 boys born for every 100 girls. Taiwan, South Korea and Pakistan are also countries in which unwanted female babies are aborted, killed or abandoned.

Faisalabad (Agenzia Fides) – The local Catholic Church calls her “a martyr of the faith”: Mariah Manisha was a Catholic girl from Faisalabd who was killed a week ago by a Muslim man who had kidnapped her and intended to marry her.

She is a martyr”.

Diplomatic impunity: Gay Pride event at U.S. embassy in Pakistan causes uproar

“The US embassy, by holding such a controversial gathering, has violated the rules and laws of land,” Ameer Munawar Hassan, the leader of conservative religious party Jamaat-I-Islami, told Pakistan’s The Nation newspaper.

“So the government should act accordingly.”

The US embassy in Islamabad held a gay event last week under the title “Pride Celebration”.

During the event, US deputy ambassador to Pakistan voiced his country’s support for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in Pakistan.

“I want to be clear: the US embassy is here to support you and stand by your side every step of the way,” Charge d’Affaires Richard Hoagland told the event, according to a release by the embassy website.

Editor’s note: A simple case of diplomatic impunity … with Hillary Clinton’s fingerprints all over!

Pakistan arrests those who cooperated with the infidels (us) to get bin Laden.

While it is understandable that Pakistan would be angry that some of its citizens had co-operated with a foreign power, the Pakistani government may soon have cause to regret these arrests. How can Pakistan argue that it is doing its best to co-operate with the United States while arresting some of the few Pakistanis who were able to help America find its most wanted man? The arrests of these five men, after the conspicuous failure to find and neutralize bin Laden, says much about Pakistan’s commitment to the Western campaign against terrorism.

Pakistan ‘in hands of Taliban’, Caritas priest warns

“Pakistan is now in the hands of the Taliban. They have become even stronger, even after the death of Bin Laden. And enjoy the consensus of large segments of the population: the ordinary citizen, the average Muslim Pakistani, is very angry with the government, the United States and NATO, and this is why they look favorably on the actions of the Taliban groups,” Father Mendes, who comes from Faisalabad, told Fides.

Missing Hamza bin Laden may have turned in his father, Osama.

Separately, ABC News reports that one of bin Laden’s wives, who was captured in the U.S. raid, has told Pakistani investigators that one of the terror leader’s sons escaped and is missing. Pakistani officials are said to have done a head count, and to believe it’s true, though U.S. officials say they’re confident no one escaped during or after the raid.

“Out of 21, one person is not accounted for,” a Pakistani intelligence official told ABC. “I believe that’s the son.”

Pakistani investigators are probing whether the son could be 22-year-old Hamza bin Laden, known as “The Crown Prince of Terror.” Hamza was credited with writing a poem praising the 2005 London bombings, and was accused by Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto of attempting to assassinate her. Bhutto was killed by Islamic extremists in 2007.
