Alisha Begum, six, died after the fire in March 2006 in Aston, Birmingham [England].

Hussain Ahmed, 26, of Harbone, and Daryll Tuzzio, 18, from Perry Barr deny murder and the attempted murder of nine of Alisha’s relatives.

Abdul Hamid, 21, has started a relationship with Ahmed’s 15-year-old sister Meherun Khanum, the court heard.

Alisha, the youngest of 12 children in her Bangladeshi family, became the innocent victim of an attempt to warn her brother off seeing the teenager, prosecutors told Birmingham Crown Court.

[. . .]

Mr. Redgrave [first name; Adrian, Prosecutor] said two further men, Mr. Ahmed’s brother, Mohammed Foaz Ahmed, and a close friend, Jabed Ali, were wanted in connection with the incident but had subsequently disappeared.

He added there is no evidence Mr. Ahmed was at the scene, but had directed the attack. [. . .]

HOT TOPICS IN THE “BLOGOSPHERE”:

THE POPE & ISLAM:

QUOTE:
[Emphasis Added]

[. . .] The Pope invited the Muslims, other Christians, Jews and
scientists to TALK to each other. Islam responded to his invitation by killing Christians, burning churches and the Pope in effigy, which doesn’t appear to be a good way to start a dialogue. Now, I ask you, if the Qur’an teaches Muslims that there should be no compulsion in religion, why are they killing nuns, burning down Christian churches and burning the Pope in effigy? Well at a later date Mohammad wrote in sura 9: 29-30 of the Qur’an:

“9.29”: Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.

“9.30”: And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!”

Perhaps Europe needs to think aboutr sura 9 before it hands 20% of Serbia, the province of Kosovo, over to Albanian Muslims, who already
have destroyed over 150 Serbian Christian Churches and who want to either subject or eliminate the few remaining Serbs.

  1. Dear Readers,

    If you received the .rss version of this post in your mailbox (as I do), you may have noticed an attachment. The .ram file attached is a copy of President Bush’s Radio address from last Saturday, which is listed as a link in this post.

    I’m honestly not that familiar with .rss feeds so I don’t know if this is a normal occurrence, and if not I’m not sure how it happened. I make a habit of not sending attachments out with any of my email unless I warn the person I am sending it to or they are requesting it. Since this is an automatic publication to my feed I was not aware this would occur. Please accept my apologies if this caused an inconvenience, or “spooked” any one (i.e. Thinking it was a virus file or something).

    Thanks to everyone who reads and/or subscribes by .rss to my blog. I appreciate your patronage. (o:

    Take Care, Stay Safe & God Bless,
    Michelle K.
