I only just found this rather dated news, but since it goes to the heart of why I keep this blog without concern for active readership—liberty of conscience—it bears mentioning here.

Norway's newspaper Aftenposten reported back in April of this year yet another "stupid Muslim trick" fleecing their country. Norwegian-Somalian Kadra, who became famous in Norway for exposing imam support of female circumcision, was attacked and beaten unconscious by seven or eight persons of Somali origin. Kadra said that the gang of Somali men attacked her around 3 a.m. in downtown Oslo on Thursday. A medical examination found that she had several broken ribs, NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) reports. Kadra filed charges and was due to speak with police on Friday.

“I was terrified. While I lay on the pavement they kicked me and screamed that I had trampled on the Koran. Several shouted Allah-o-akbar (God is great) and also recited from the Koran,” Kadra told VG. Her role in a 2000 hidden camera TV documentary revealing the positive attitude of Muslim leaders to female circumcision had a massive impact on Norway, and sparked new legislation.

When our leaders wake up to the fact that this Koran has given millions of young men around the globe a license to thuggery and murder? Sudden Jihad Syndrome or SJS is a very dangerous contagion.

But in a new verdict issued after Saudi Arabia's Higher Judicial Council ordered a retrial, the court in the eastern town of Al-Qatif more than doubled the number of lashes to 200. A court source told the English-language Arab News that the judges had decided to punish the woman further for "her attempt to aggravate and influence the judiciary through the media."
