#illridewithyou: do Australia's rightwingers hate it because they don't know their own readers? | Jason Wilson 18.12.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
News Corp spear carriers like to bang on about radical Islam, but they’ve been left looking isolated by Abbott’s response to the Sydney Siege. Does anyone actually agree with them? Now and then culture warriors are forced to get creative. Perhaps the facts won’t easily support their prefabricated opinions. Maybe the complicity of their political enemies with evil can’t be shown in any straightforward or honest way. Now and then, it’s necessary to reinflate the opinion bubble as it sags under the pressure of outside events. The risk they run is that their selective and partisan retellings begin to seem delusional. At the conclusion of the siege at the Lindt cafe in Sydney’s Martin Place, the NSW police commissioner confirmed it was not an organised terror attack but an “isolated incident” carried out by an individual. There were overwhelmingly good reasons for thinking that Man Haron Monis was no more in death than what he had been in life — a violent, troubled, mendacious and misogynistic man. Denial, ...

Conversion is tricky issue, all aspects should be looked into: Allahabad High Court 17.12.2014 DNA: Recent Columns
 The Allahabad High Court has ruled that conversion is a tricky issue and while considering such disputes courts should ensure that conversion has not been done forcibly and fraudulently or with some allurement. A Lucknow bench comprising Justices Devi Prasad Singh and Rajiv Sharma gave the ruling yesterday while allowing a petition of a girl in an inter-religious marriage case.  According to the petition, the girl who belonged to Jain community allegedly performed nikaah with a youth of Muslim community. The youth had filed a regular suit for restitution of conjugal rights in the family court of Bahraich district. However, the court, in its November 12, 2014 order, restrained solemnisation of marriage of the girl with any person whosoever. The girl then approached High Court challenging the family court order. The court said that in this case, there was no material on record, as to how and in what manner the conversion took place and why in 'nikahnama' the original name of girl has also been ...

Egyptian court overturns some Muslim Brotherhood asset seizures 17.12.2014 DNA: Top News
An Egyptian court on Tuesday overturned decisions by a special committee to seize the assets of Muslim Brotherhood leaders, without saying which members or assets will be affected. The Muslim Brotherhood's activities were banned last September and the government formed a committee a month later to manage the Brotherhood's funds and properties. That committee froze the assets of many Brotherhood leaders as part of a crackdown that saw hundreds killed and thousands arrested after the army ousted President Mohamed Mursi of the Brotherhood in July 2013 following mass protests. But on Tuesday, an administrative court said in a ruling seen by Reuters that 17 decisions made by the committee "ignored the provisions of the constitution and the law." "A criminal court is the appropriate body to freeze funds and property, and preventing owners from accessing what is theirs cannot be done with an administrative decision," the ruling said. The ruling did not identify which Brotherhood leaders' assets were covered ...

Germany’s ‘pinstripe Nazis’ show the immigration debate is overheated 16.12.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Hyping every crime involving a Muslim as a security threat is unhelpful – government and the media must behave responsibly Rightwing parties are on the rise across Europe. Should we worry? Such movements have come and mostly gone for decades. They draw strength from immigrant surges and economic woes. The Pegida rallies – Germany’s “pinstripe Nazis” – now drawing thousands of marchers to German cities, are specifically anti-Muslim. But are they different from similar movements in France, Sweden, the Netherlands or Britain? Any expression of racial hatred from Germany is bound to be alarming, but every nation has its political fringe. That the rallies are well-dressed and called a “stroll” is neither here nor there. Comments made by participants might be arrestable offences in Britain, but the sentiments are familiar to fringe politics everywhere, and laws and arrests will never curb ...

Sydney siege: Don't call Man Haron Monis a 'terrorist' - it only helps Isis | Anne Aly 16.12.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
• The world reacts: newspaper front pages The Sydney siege has brought to attention the very real threat of attacks by lone actors. In this case, the lone gunman at the centre of the siege stormed into a coffee shop in Sydney’s central business district (CBD) and took hostages. Shortly after, he ordered hostages to fly a flag in the window that bears the Islamic testimony to faith, suggesting that this incident may have been ideologically or politically motivated. Looking back at the tragic events of the past 24 hours and with new information about the perpetrator, who we know now to be Man Haron Monis, is it right to classify this as a terrorist attack motivated by the global jihadist movement and the Islamic State ...
