Arab Woman's Role Is To Instil Love of Jihad and Martyrdom in Her Children

A video shows the wife of a Hamas MP saying that an Arab woman's role is "to instil love of jihad and martyrdom in her children."

By Elad Benari

 1/9/2013

Hamas is continuing to incite and encourage Arab children to carry out acts of terrorism.

A video translated and released by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) shows the wife of a Hamas member of parliament saying that an Arab woman's role is "to instill love of jihad and martyrdom in her children."

The comments by Umm Osama, the wife of Hamas MP Khalil Al-Hayya, aired on the Hamas-affiliated Al-Aqsa TV on December 2, 2012.

"Women in Palestine play a great role in raising their children and in encouraging them to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah," she said. "This is absolutely the most glorious thing a woman can do. Women play their role and are not inferior to men. When a man goes to wage Jihad, his wife does not say 'Don't go' or try to stop him. She encourages and supports him. She is the one who prepares his equipment, bids him farewell, and welcomes [his Jihad].

"She instils in her children the love of Jihad and martyrdom for the sake of Allah," said Umm Osama. "If every mother were to prevent her son from waging Jihad for the sake of Allah, who would wage Jihad? Who would support Palestine? Palestine is dear to us, and its price is paid with our body remains and our lifeblood.

"Is not Allah's reward precious? Allah's reward is Paradise. Paradise requires from us our blood, our body remains, and our efforts for its sake.

She added, "I am constantly praying: 'Allah, make the end of our days be in martyrdom.' I pray for this even for my husband and my children. None of us want to die in our beds. We pray that Allah will grant us Paradise."

Four Arrested Over Sexual Offences at Mental Health Institution in Maldives

By Ahmed Nazeer | January 10th, 2013

Four men have allegedly been arrested in Kaafu Atoll over drug and sex offences related to their work at the Centre for People with Mental Disability on the island of Guraidhoo, sources with knowledge of the matter have claimed.

Speaking to Minivan News under condition of anonymity today, several sources from the island claimed the four suspects stood accused of giving hash oil cigarettes to women staying at the centre and then having sex with them.

One of the four suspects was said to have been charged with filming the alleged crimes, according to the sources. However the charges are not thought to relate to women suffering with mental health issues or physical disabilities.

Several sources on the island of Guraidhoo today claimed that the four men alleged to have been arrested as part of the case were all staff at the centre – one of whom was claimed to be an Imam.

The same sources confirmed to Minivan News that the alleged offences occurred last year.

The suspects are currently believed to still be detained while investigations into the matter continue.

”Their pretrial detention period was first extended to seven days, and when the seven days were over, the court extended the [suspect's] detention to another 15 days three times,” a source on the island claimed today.

Minivan News understands that although the woman were staying at the Centre for People with Mental Disabilities, they were not thought at the time to suffer from any mental health issue or physical disorder.

“I have information that these girls were first kept at the orphanage in Villingili and when they were old enough to get out from the orphanage and had nowhere to go, the government sent them to the Centre,’’ a source claimed.

The women alleged to be involved with the case have also been summoned to court to testify in the hearing held to decide on the length of pretrial detention for the suspects, Minivan News was told.

According to the Act number 12/2009 relating to Special Measures Applicable to Perpetrators of Child Sexual Abuse, any persons suffering with a disability will be treated in the same manner as a minor in cases related to sexual abuse.

A senior staff member at the Guraidhoo Centre for People with Mental Disability confirmed to Minivan News today that an “issue” with certain members of staff had taken place at the centre and that police were informed at the time.

“There is an issue like this.  But I cannot give information because all the staff here have signed an agreement that we won’t give out information related to things that goes inside the centre,” the source said.

“The incident was reported to police when the girls one day got mad at the staff working here and told that they were in a relationship with some staffs and the things they have done to the girls. That’s how the centre came to know about this. But we have not heard of the drugging part,’’ the source added.

Minivan News was awaiting a response from the Maldives Police Service regarding the matter at time of press.

ABU DHABI // Two prostitutes who stripped off their jail uniforms in court as an objection to their treatment were yesterday sentenced to six months in prison.

The pair was among 12 women charged with prostitution after being found outside a hotel in the capital soliciting their services and put on trial at the Criminal Court.

When the judge adjourned the case the pair ripped off their green uniforms and threw themselves to the floor, refusing to return to their cells.

They will be deported after serving their jail terms.

Teen Wins Divorce but Many Questions Remain Unanswered

11 January 2013

JEDDAH: The marriage of a Jazan girl to an 84-year-old man has resulted in plenty of soul-searching and calls for legislation to prevent the marriage of young girls to elderly men by making 18 the minimum age for a girl to get married. Some officials are also making demands that the government take greater steps to fight poverty, one of the main reasons that families marry off their daughters to elderly men.

By Conner Hammett, chammett@starlocalnews.com

 January 9, 2013

While the Texas Muslim Women's Foundation is based out of Plano, its reach throughout Islamic communities in Dallas-Fort Worth -- and the state of Texas -- is vast.

For the past eight years, the foundation has provided general social services, interfaith outreach and youth programs.

But one of its most essential services deals with a serious issue that affects people of all faiths -- domestic violence.

UAE: Politics Is a Man's Game That Women Are Ready To Play

Ayesha Almazroui

Jan 10, 2013

In Oman's municipal elections last month, about half of the 46 female candidates withdrew weeks before the election date.

The question is: why? Some said they had decided to step aside because society doesn't trust women's abilities. Khadijah Suleiman, a 36-year-old banker, told reporters that she had withdrawn because she was "not convinced that women are taken seriously in elections".

The example of Oman's Shura Council proved her point, she said, because only five women had won seats in the council since it was established in 1991. And this despite women's rights activists campaigning for gender quotas guaranteeing better representation in the Shura Council.
