Why does this keep happening? One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.
The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.
And Shivzad’s choice of a primary school-age is reminiscent of the 54-year-old Muhammad consummating his marriage with the nine-year-old Aisha.
“Sick rapist lures little girl before subjecting her to vile sex attack lasting over 30 minutes,” by Gareth Lightfoot, Teeside Live, February 3, 2019 (thanks to Paul):
A vile sexual abuser who raped and molested a very young girl has been caged for 15 years.
Hewad Shivzad isolated the primary school-age girl and lured her away to subject her to a sexual attack lasting 30 to 40 minutes.
He ignored her pleas for him to stop, sexually assaulted her and forced himself on her, Teesside Crown Court heard.
A judge said the victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was a blameless, charming, innocent and “innately kind” girl.
Prosecutor Aisha Wadoodi said: “The child is particularly vulnerable.”
She read out a moving statement from the girl’s mother, who said: “I’m worried that this will have ruined her life.”
The mum said the rape massively affected her daughter, leading to anger, violent behaviour and harming herself.
“We are really struggling as a family,” she added.
“She talks about what happened all the time. I think that she’s depressed. I really need some help for her.”

‘I feel that this has ruined our lives’

She added: “I’m also suffering depression. I feel distraught about what has happened to (my daughter) and our family.
“I feel that this has ruined our lives. We need help and justice.
“I want to move somewhere else but I can’t do this.”
Shivzad – who claimed to be 19, to the disbelief of his sentencing judge – denied the rape and sexual assault from August last year….
He jailed Shivzad for 15 years, plus a year’s additional supervision.
The Parole Board will decide whether it is safe to release him after he has served half of his sentence.
Turning to the issue of Shivzad’s age, the judge said: “He claims to be 19. I don’t believe him.
“If he were 19 he should be in a young offenders’ institution. My view is he should be in prison.
“He’s obviously older than 21. But the Prison Service will have to judge where to keep him.”
He told Shivzad: “You maintain that you are a 19-year-old man. I’ve seen no documents to support that claim and to my eyes you appear substantially older.
“It’s my view that your claim to be so young is a lie told when you entered the UK in March 2017 to claim asylum.”…

AUSTIN, Texas — More than 70,000 petitions calling for the governor of Texas to make outlawing abortion an “emergency item” for the new legislative session were delivered to Gov. Greg Abbott’s on Monday. However, the governor did not mention the issue of abortion at all during his “State of the State” address on Tuesday, but rather chose five other emergency items as his focus.
“Over 70,000 petitions have been signed over the last 39 days,” announced Bradley Pierce of Abolish Abortion Texas during a press conference. “90 percent of those are Texans. … The last four days, more than 4,000 people a day have been signing this petition.”
As previously reported, last June, Gov. Abbott called Jeremiah Thomas, a 16-year-old boy who was fighting osteoblastic osteosarcoma, as Thomas wanted to talk to Abbott about passing a bill to abolish abortion in the state of Texas as his dying wish. Thomas died in August.
“For my wish, I wanted to talk to you and discuss a bill of abolition,” he explained, while speaking from his hospital room at McLane Children’s Hospital. “[W]e want you to treat abortion like an act of murder that should be punished by law.”
“I know that it must be difficult standing against a whole federal beast that forces abortion on us, but I think that we … could end abortion here and now,” Thomas said.
Abbott’s response made Thomas smile. He noted that the Texas Republican party platform expresses a desire to abolish abortion, and that lawmakers planned on putting forward a bill that would make abortion illegal in the state.
“Your wish is on the Republican party platform and it’s what we’re going to be pursuing this next legislative session—that’s to outlaw abortion altogether in the state of Texas,” he told Thomas, the recording of which was posted to social media. “And so, your wish has been granted.”
The legislation referenced by Abbott is that of Rep. Tony Tinderholt, R-Arlington, who similarly presented a bill in 2017 to abolish abortion, but it was stalled by the speaker of the House. Tinderholt has re-filed his bill for the 2019 legislative season.
Tinderholt told reporters upon first filing the measure that the bill is in response to language in the Texas Republican Party platform, which was passed in May 2016, calling for the complete abolition of abortion in the state.
“We call upon the Texas legislature to enact legislation stopping the murder of unborn children; and to ignore and refuse to enforce any and all federal statutes, regulations, executive orders, and court rulings, which would deprive an unborn child of the right to life,” the platform text reads.
As the Abolition of Abortion in Texas Act, House Bill 948, was again put forward with the new legislative session, a campaign was launched in late December to urge Abbott to get behind the effort and make the matter an “emergency item.”
However, during his state of the state address on Tuesday, Abbott did not mention the issue of abortion at all, but according to the Dallas Morning News, he rather chose five other focuses for his emergency items: school finance, teacher pay, school safety, caps on property tax increases, and improving state response to natural disasters in light of Hurricane Harvey.
“[N]ot only did he not mention Jeremiah, not only did he not mention … [the bill presented] to outlaw abortion in Texas, he did not mention the 55,000 preborn children who are killed in the state every year whatsoever,” Pierce commented in an online video, recorded from the state capitol building. “We’re disappointed.”
“He said today that Texas is the most powerful state in the Union. While the governor of New York is leading the country in hating the lives of the unborn, the governor of the most powerful state in the Union …. is leading the nation by leading us in doing nothing to save those lives of the 55,000 preborn children in Texas and the million children in this country who are being killed every year,” he said.
Pierce expressed a hopefulness that the governor would still get behind Tinderholt’s bill in some way, and added that his hope is not in man, but in God.
“I believe that Roe v. Wade is unconstitutional,” he also opined during Monday’s press conference. “Where the Supreme Court has ignored the Constitution, then we are duty-bound to ignore the court.”

(Friday Church News Notes, February 8, 2019,,, 866-295-4143) - 
Hillsong is a church in the suburbs of Sydney, Australia, the largest church in that country (formerly Hills Christian Life Centre), long affiliated with the Assemblies of God. It is co-pastored by the Houstons, a husband-wife team: Brian (author of “You Need More Money”) and Bobbie (author of “Kingdom Women Love Sex”). Hillsong is also a growing family of churches around the world. There are Hillsong affiliates in New York, Los Angeles, Phoenix, London, Madrid, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Paris, Zurich, Sao Paulo, Tel Aviv, and Moscow, among other places. Hillsong churches are among the most influential producers of contemporary worship music, music that is used by all denominations, even by some Independent Baptists after a lot of the rock & roll is squeezed out. Darlene Zschech of “Shout to the Lord” fame was worship leader at Hillsong Sydney for 25 years before becoming co-pastor with her husband of Hope Unlimited Church in 2010. Hillsong has long been radicallyecumenical. In a 2004 interview with Christianity Today, Zschech expressed her philosophy: “I’ve been in the Catholic Church, in the United Church, the Anglican Church, and in many other churches, and when worship is offered in truth, this sound emerges-regardless of the style” (Michael Herman, “Zschech, Please,”, June 4, 2004). She doesn’t explain how worship can be “in truth” in the context of an ecumenical unity among denominations that teach doctrinal error. Zschech and Hillsong performed for the Roman Catholic World Youth Day in Sydney on July 18, 2008. Pope Benedict XVI conducted a papal mass on the last day of the extravaganza. On July 3-4, 2015, Zschech and Hillsong joined hands with the pope at the Convocation of the Renewal of the Holy Spirit at the Vatican. The Catholic mass was celebrated at the event led by Cardinal Angelo Comastri. According to blasphemous Catholic dogma, the priest has the power to turn the bread into the actual body and blood of Jesus, and it is then worshiped in the form of the consecrated host. We wonder if Hillsong addressed some of their enthusiastic worship to Rome’s Host-Jesus? Pope Francis praised the charismatic movement’s zeal for unity and said that Christian unity is “rooted in a common baptism” (“Pope Greets Members of the Renewal,” July 4, 2015, According to Roman Catholic dogma, baptism is the new birth and the entrance into the Christian life which is then nurtured by the sacraments. It is a cursed “grace plus works” gospel (Galatians 1:8-9) which the Catholic Church in recent times has cleverly rebranded as “grace only.” In Rome, Darlene Zschech and Hillsong sang “God Is Here,” but whatever God they were singing about, it is not the God revealed in Scripture, for He does not countenance heresy, false gospels, and rebellion to His Word. We wonder if the Hillsong folk took the time to visit Rome’s Santa Maria Maggoire (Saint Mary Major) basilica to pray to the Queen of Heaven and to meditate on the statue of Mary hanging on the cross with Jesus? Hillsong United participated in Together 2016 in Washington, D.C., joining hands in that forum with Pope Francis, who delivered a message by video. Most recently, January 31-February 1, 2019, Hillsong Phoenix hosted the annual Alpha Conference. Catholic priest Mike Schmitz, one of the speakers, conducted a Catholic mass. Fundamental Baptists and Bible-believing churches that use contemporary praise music are playing with fire. This music brings with it a philosophy that will change the character of any “fundamentalist” church. It builds bridges to the “broader church,” which is progressing toward the formation of a one-world apostasy.
