Observers in Pakistan are warning that the ‘Talibanisation’ of the nation’s largest city, Karachi, has begun.
According to a report in the Pakistan Christian Post, two Christians were shot and killed execution style in front of their families by a group of more than 100 masked Taliban in the Christian colony in Taiser Town recently.
Taliban militants had reportedly chalked threats onto churches and Christian homes in the predominantly Muslim town warning Christians to convert to Islam or die. Calls from the Christian community for protection were ignored by police. Read the rest of this entry »
Fears that an Iranian ban on imports from its arch foe Israel was flouted by the sale of Jaffa oranges have sparked an inquiry in Tehran, reports say. City authorities asked the judiciary to take action after the Israeli fruit was allegedly imported in boxes marked as Chinese, local media report.
The fruit was imported via Dubai and put on sale at markets and in shops in and around Tehran, one report says.

:::Warning: graphic and highly disturbing content:::
Their deaths were squalid, riddled with bullets in a field near their home by Taliban gunmen as the execution was captured on a mobile telephone.
In footage which is being watched with horror by Pakistanis, the couple try to flee when they realise what is about to happen. But a gunman casually shoots the man and then the woman in the back with a burst of gunfire, leaving them bleeding in the dirt. Moments later, when others in the execution party shout out that they are still alive, he returns to coldly finish them with a few more rounds. Read the rest of this entry »
Two female suicide homicide [ed.] bombers have attacked Baghdad’s main Shia shrine, killing at least 60 people and injuring 125 others, officials in Iraq say. The attack happened at the Imam Moussa al-Kadhim shrine in the Kadhimiya area as people gathered for Friday prayers. It comes a day after 84 people were killed in two separate suicide attacks in Baghdad and Baquba.
Many victims in Baquba and in Baghdad on Friday were Iranian pilgrims and the violence was condemned in Tehran. Violence fell sharply in the last year and the latest bombing does not change this trend, but it is a worrying development, says the BBC’s Jim Muir in Baghdad. The shrine was previously attacked by suicide homicide [ed.] bombers in 2004. Read the rest of this entry »
Hal G.P. Colebatch is a celebrated, award-winning Australian author, poet, lecturer, journalist, editor, and lawyer (well you can’t have everything, I supppose).
Today, in ‘The Australian’ newspaper, he has written what we at Un:dhimmi believe to be a an extremely timely and important article about ‘the Motherland’. He argues that, through a combination of political correctness, thought-policing, unelected and unaccountable Quasi-Governmental bodies (think Common Purpose, EU Commission & co.); Britain is now to all intents and purposes a totalitarian state, albeit without the barbed wire and concentration camps.
Read it and (especially Brits) see whether you recognise what he’s saying.
Then weep. Unless, that is, you are prepared to take back your country from these Marxist, doublespeaking criminals? Read the rest of this entry »
