Clemons, Iowa: Pedophiles plan political party
John E. Walker 4639 Park Boulevard Clemons, IA 50051
Dutch pedophiles are launching a political party to push for a cut in the legal age for sexual relations to 12 from 16 and the legalization of child pornography and sex with animals, sparking widespread outrage.
The Charity, Freedom and Diversity (NVD) party said on its Web site it would be officially registered Wednesday, proclaiming: “We are going to shake The Hague awake!”
The party said it wanted to cut the legal age for sexual relations to 12 and eventually scrap the limit altogether.
“A ban just makes children curious,” Ad van den Berg, one of the party’s founders, told the Algemeen Dagblad (AD) newspaper.
“We want to make pedophilia the subject of discussion,” he said, adding the subject had been a taboo since the 1996 Marc Dutroux child abuse scandal in neighboring Belgium.
“We want to get into parliament so we have a voice. Other politicians only talk about us in a negative sense, as if we were criminals,” Van den Berg told Reuters.
The Netherlands, which already has liberal policies on soft drugs, prostitution and gay marriage, was shocked by the plan.
An opinion poll published Tuesday showed that 82 percent wanted the government to do something to stop the new party, while 67 percent said promoting pedophilia should be illegal.
“They make out as if they want more rights for children. But their position that children should be allowed sexual contact from age 12 is of course just in their own interest,” anti-pedophile campaigner Ireen van Engelen told the AD daily.

Right-wing lawmaker Geert Wilders said he had asked the government to investigate whether a party with such “sick ideas” could really be established, ANP news agency reported.
Kees van deer Staaij, a member of the Christian SGP party, also demanded action: “Pedophilia and child pornography should be taboo in every constitutional state. Breaking that will just create more victims and more serious ones.”
The party wants private possession of child pornography to be allowed although it supports the ban on the trade of such materials. It also supports allowing pornography to be broadcast on daytime television, with only violent pornography limited to the late evening.
Toddlers should be given sex education and youths aged 16 and up should be allowed to appear in pornographic films and prostitute themselves. Sex with animals should be allowed although abuse of animals should remain illegal, the NVD said.
The party also said everybody should be allowed to go naked in public and promotes legalizing all soft and hard drugs and free train travel for all.
Frenchtown, New Jersey: Graphic photos - islamic state beheads man accused of performing ‘magic’
Jesse T. Nesbitt 4834 Fairfax Drive Frenchtown, NJ 08825
TEL AVIV – The Islamic State group has publicized photos on its Telegram account showing the beheading of a Syrian accused of performing “magic.” According to group members, IS police officers beheaded the man in the town of Tasil in the Dara district in southern Syria.
In an accompanying statement, the terrorist organization said that the man was beheaded with a sword and had performed “magic and sorcery.”
In the photos, one member of IS can be seen reading the ruling of the Sharia court, noting the Islamic penalty for the alleged transgressions.
Those who carried out the punishment of beheading, according to IS, were members of the Khaled Bin Waleed militia – a jihadist militia affiliated with IS active in southern Syria in the triangular area between the borders of Syria, Jordan and Israel.
In addition to organization members, the photos show local residents present for the “ceremony” to witness the beheading.
Meanwhile, the organization publicized photos of the same militia from the same town that show police raiding stores, confiscating forbidden products like cigarettes, checking the expiration dates of products and ordering the closure of a number of businesses for multiple days after discovering that the store owners allegedly continued to run the business during times of Muslim prayers without stopping to pray themselves.

Civil society groups as well as the Police have urged the public, especially parents, to be more vigilant after what they called a worrying trend of rape cases targeting children countrywide.

The young girl had been alone at home when the incident occurred.
In another incident on the same day in Kamashagi Cell of Kamembe Sector, Rusizi District, a 13-year old girl was allegedly defiled by two men – Felix Nzacahimana, 28, and Cassian Nzeyimana, 34.
The victim did not survive the ordeal and was pronounced dead at Gihundwe Hospital.

Earlier, on Sunday, Eric Habimana, 30, from Musanze District was detained after Ugandan police alerted their Rwandan counterparts that he was on the run after allegedly raping an eight-year old daughter of one Samuel Habyarimana, a friend he had previously visited in Uganda.
All suspects are in custody as investigations continue.
“Everyone should be more vigilant, in particular, parents should not to leave their young children unaccompanied at all times. But apart from the ongoing awareness campaign, we have worked on effective justice as it is also a deterrent to such criminals,â€ said Police Spokesperson, Theos Badege.
The deputy Chief Gender Monitor, Eugenie Kabageni, said parents should increase efforts in ensuring their children’s safety, especially “by knowing where they are and with whoâ€ all the time.
Kabageni said that the community, too, should take the matter as their own, in addition to collaboration from all local authorities.
She pointed out that evidence gathering is particularly difficult as parents may delay in reporting cases, a situation that may result in setting culprits free. According to her, information on child defilement must always be given due attention, and quickly.
The Police have put in place punitive and preventive measures as well as care and support for victims.
They have an anti- Gender Based Violence (GBV) Directorate to deal with such issues in addition to the establishment of Isange one-stop centre, to improve service delivery, care and support to victims.
According to Transparency Rwanda’s Chairperson, Marie Immaculee Ingabire, Isange one-stop centre, has been of great help as it helps victims get assistance – including treatment and counselling to restore victims’ self-confidence – fast and effectively.
Ingabire advised victims to report incidents, immediately, and preferably not bathe or wash off evidence before seeing a doctor in 48 hours.
Child defilement statistics reported to the Police from 2009 to June 2011 indicate a slight increase in number.
There were 1,570 reported cases in 2009 and 1,654 cases in 2010, while this year, between January to June, 742 cases were reported.
Rockford, Iowa: 5 on trial for murder at Lungni
Terry R. Poore 1003 Park Boulevard Rockford, IA 50468
There is an uneasy calm at Lungni, in the Nanumba South District of the Northern Region, following the discovery of a decomposed body identified as a Konkomba on a farm at the outskirts of the village.
Subsequently, the police arrested and are prosecuting seven suspected Bassaris in the Yendi Circuit Court. Ubor Chamanme Tanobe, chief of Kandin in the Tatale District, whose relatives are being held as suspects, is pleading with the Konkombas to resist the temptation of reprisal attacks and allow the due process to ensure justice.
He told the Ghana News Agency that the Konkombas were of the view that the police had been influenced after the court granted bail to the suspects, although they were still being held in custody pending execution of the bail bonds.
Ubor Tanobe said the situation was critical and would require the immediate attention and action of National Security.
“At this time of the year, so close to the elections, there should be no threat to the peace. I am, therefore, appealing to the police to intensify investigations to determine the actual perpetrators of the crime.
“The situation is being compounded by the fact that the Konkombas do not understand why the suspects should go for a lawyer to defend them,” he said.
Ubor Tanobe called on both Konkombas and Bassaris, who had lived together for ages, not to allow passion to overcome them, rather, they should let the legal process run so that the actual culprit would be found and punished accordingly.
