"Who are we to say, 'you shouldn't feel insecure, you just suck it up'. That's not right. They have a right.
"I feel insecure. I am a Muslim and I feel insecure about what Daesh is doing.
His comment came as news arrived of a bombing, most likely carried out by the Taliban, in the Pakistani city of Quetta, which killed the senior lawyers of that city:
About 60 of them were killed in one attack on Monday in Baluchistan's capital, Quetta. They were packed into an emergency room where the body of a slain colleague lay, riddled with gunshot wounds. A widely circulated video showed lawyers milling about the hospital before an enormous explosion. A Pakistani Taliban offshoot claimed the attack, as did the Islamic State, though analysts say the latter's claim is dubious.
A generation of lawyers has been wiped out in Quetta, and it will leave Baluchistan, in more ways than one, lawless.
Barkhurdar Khan, a member of the Baluchistan Bar Council, was one of the few lawyers who survived the attack...After the attack, Khan offered his singular perspective in a heartrending stream of posts on social media.
"All, I repeat ALL senior practicing lawyers and barristers died today," he wrote. "Most of those who died were first-gen educated. The scenes of misery and loss cannot be put into words. The bent shoulders of their fathers, the broken backs of their brothers. Their kids, still oblivious to their own loss, playing and hoping," Khan continued.
"Heartwrenching is an understatement."
And, finally, something that we traditionalists have predicted. In Italy, homosexuals have been granted the right to civil unions. Unsurprisingly, the leading Muslim organisation in that country has argued that if two men can marry, then a man should be able to have more than one wife and have it recognised by the state:
Following the introduction of civil partnerships, Muslim representatives in Italy are now demanding the legalisation of polygamy.
Responding to a new law allowing same sex couples to enter civil unions, Hamza Piccardo argued that if gay relationships, which Muslims disagree with, are a civil right then Italians must accept polygamy as a civil right too.
The founder of the Union of Islamic Communities and Organisations (UCOII) in Italy took to Facebook to claim polygamy is a “civil right” and that Italy would benefit from the large number of Muslim births it would promote.
It's only a matter of time, isn't it? If, as liberals claim, family is whatever we define it to be and marriage is a celebration of love between people, then on what logical grounds can you say that men shouldn't have more than one wife?
We have a combination of a watered down liberal definition of marriage and mass Muslim immigration into the West. The result will inevitably be the legalisation of polygamy. Liberalism and Islam are working together, in this instance, to radically change the Western tradition.
