Separate groups of gunmen entered two primary schools in Baghdad on Wednesday and beheaded two teachers in front of their students, the Ministry of State for National Security said.

"Two terrorist groups beheaded two teachers in front of their students in the Amna and Shaheed Hamdi primary schools in Shaab district in Baghdad," a ministry statement said.

A ministry official said he believed the attacks were aimed at: "intimidating pupils and disrupting learning."
The Times
MUSLIM students training to be imams at a British college with strong Iranian links have complained that they are being taught fundamentalist doctrines which describe nonMuslims as “filth”.

The students... have asked to remain anonymous
It's good that students themeselves have complained, but sad that they fear possible consequences.

Tsunami aid not wanted by Maldives government:
The government ordered an indoor marketplace in Haa Dhaal, Kulhudhuffushi to be dismantled last week because the building was donated by “people in opposition to the government” and “Christians.”

The $70,000 marketplace was built by Tracy Structures, a UK construction company, and facilitated by Maldives Aid, a UK-based tsunami charity.

...the Minister for Fisheries, Abdullah Kamaluddeen, ordered the Kulhudhuffushi Island Chief to destroy the building for political reasons.

...Although dead-set against the Kulhudhuffushi marketplace, Abdullah Kamaluddeen is more relaxed about receiving money for his own personal use.

The minister was shamed in January following revelations in Adduvas magazine that he embezzled over Rf.1 million of public funds in the ‘soft loans’ scandal.
Nova Southeastern University has invited Salman Rushdie to speak at its graduation ceremony, with expected consequences - Students object to Rushdie invitation.

I see that the editor-in-chief of a new Canadian newspaper for Muslims which went on sale on Tuesday is none other than Syed B. Soharwardy, the radical Calgary imam currently suing the Western Standard for publishing the Mohammed cartoons. The name of the new publication? The Muslim Free Press.

The Jews-are-legitimate-targets attitude of Swedish Chancellor of Justice Göran Lambertz that I mentioned yesterday is far from unique. A blogger has left a link to his account of life as a Jew in Sweden today:
I am a Jew. Presented here are my own views. Because of the current political and social climate in Sweden, with assaults and death threats, I chose to be anonymous mostly out of concern for my nearest and dearest.
