Jordan: No more pardons for rapists who marry their victims | In some Arab countries, men who rape a woman but then marry her are protected from prosecution. But legislative changes approved by parliament in Jordan are making this a thing of the past.

To those wondering, countries where this law still exists include:

Iraq, Syria, Tanzania, Eritrea, Cameroon, Tunisia, Libya, Angola, Philippines, Tajikistan. I believe Lebanon also has this law but I couldn't find any data on it, just articles stating that the law still exists.

Countries that have similar laws (as in concessions for rapists who marry their victims) include:

Belgium, Greece, Russia, Thailand and Malaysia.

I'm sure there are more countries in the second list but these are the ones explicitly mentioned.

because historically, if you rape a woman, not only have you committed a crime, but you have destroyed the womans life. nobody will marry someone that isn't a virgin. they become a burden on their family, don't have children, etc.

the intention of the law was to allow women that were raped a chance to live a somewhat normal-for-their-culture-and-time life. obviously it isn't taken that way anymore.

Why was that ever a thing?

Belgium? Really?

Fed up with endless encroachment on their ancestral lands, leaders of Brazil's many indigenous tribes went to the capital Brasilia to speak out this week. But they had trouble finding anyone to listen. When they tried to approach Congress on Tuesday, they were pushed back in clouds of tear gas.

On one hand, it's basically the tail end of the genocide that began hundreds of years ago; a real tragedy. On the other hand, the fact that stone-age civilizations have managed to survive this long is astonishing.

I don't think it's all that surprising that they've lasted this long. What's more surprising is that their culture has survived.

I think it's Graham Hancock that likes to say that these primitive peoples will be the ones that survive if there's some kind of global apocalyptic event. Most of the planet has been reliant on technology and long established societies to survive. Meanwhile, these tribal people have been surviving on nothing but the land for as long as they have existed.

Just gave me an idea for a writingprompt.

An uncontacted island tribe ventures off their land for the first time in millenia only to find the ashes of a long-gone, long forgotten highly advanced society.

In 2015, over 50 environmentalists were murdered in Brazil.

Corporations owned by the super-rich make enormous amounts of money exploiting the environment. So long as they think they're justified in doing so, the billionaires will protect their interests, using extreme violence if necessary.

The land are used to raise meat for McDonalds, Burger King, Cargill and dozens of other multinationals.

If you want to learn more about what's happening, check out the documentary "Cowspiracy" about how a company murdered an environmentalist nun named Sister Dorothy Stang. It takes a special kind of evil to murder an elderly nun. Please look at the trailer at 0:07

I find it amazing that here where I live in Vancouver, Canada ,the government continues to encourage building on land that is very near sea level ,such as our airport ,why are they ignoring the sea level rise that is going to take place.

Make it the next generations problem. That's how we do it in the US.

Their logic is probably to make money while it's still there then worry about it when it's gone.

The scariest part is that climate models don't event account for the massive release of methane (a greenhouse gas) when the permafrost thaws. In other words, we're likely getting a even hotter than expected.

As it is right now, the southern US will get as hot as the middle-east (ie. Saudi Arabia) before the end of this century. And the middle-east will be uninhabitable. Hundreds of millions of people will be looking for other places to live...can you say global war?

Trump team did background check on Flynn, knew of Turkey ties: report

Trump team did background check on Flynn, knew of Turkey ties: report

All of our (American) racist uncles got together and voted for a wild card candidate with the help of foreign financing. Said country provided a team of 300 social media manipulators as well. Last time we had a moron president with an ultraconservative vice president the duo could fake being presidential. I'm not the only one ashamed of our country. Bring the downvotes.

The Trump transition didn't think Flynn working for a foreign power was a problem because Trump does it too.

Trump has a history of hanging out with shady people. The guy who supplied his helicopters for his casino in Atlantic City was a member of the Gambinos. He never suffered for it before and he didn't expect to suffer now.

Under any other circumstances, these people would have been put under oath by now, they would have lied, and lost their jobs.

This administration has been getting extremely lucky. They lie all the time and there have been no consequences.

Israeli teen behind 591 bomb threats to Australian schools: police

Israeli teen behind 591 bomb threats to Australian schools: police
Israeli teen behind 591 bomb threats to Australian schools: police

This is the same guy that was arrested about a month ago.

An Israeli teenager charged this week with making more than 2,000 hoax bomb threats to schools, Jewish centres, hospitals and airlines in five countries is alleged to have been behind 591 bomb threats against schools in Australia, Victoria police have confirmed.

So it is not another one, it's the same guy.

He also tried to blackmail a US senator for money and had huge sums of money in bitcoin. He apparently posted his "services" on the dark net and was being paid for it. It's definitely a weird story:

The indictment said that after Lopez, a Republican on the Delaware senate, criticised the wave of threats, Kadar called him to demand payment in bitcoin or face incrimination on the internet. When Lopez did not respond, he ordered drugs online to send to the senator’s house.

In addition to the bomb threats to Jewish centres, the indictment said Kadar made a bomb threat against an El-Al flight to Israel that sparked fighter jets to be scrambled, and threatened a Canadian airport, which required passengers to disembark in emergency slides and left six people injured.

Reports in the Israeli media have alleged Kadar took payments for some of the bomb threats from students who wanted exams postponed. He reportedly had almost $500,000 in his bitcoin account at the time of his arrest.

The indictment said he posted set fees for calls to police stations, schools or airports.

Apparently he also has a brain tumor and that's why he wasnt drafted to the IDF:

His lawyer, Shira Nir, has said she intends to argue that the teenager – who it is claimed has autism and a brain tumour – should not be regarded as legally competent.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/24/israel-michael-kadar-jewish-centre-bomb-threats

A day in prison for every false call. 2000 days sounds appropriate.

It might be a bunch of rumors that I've read, or gathered from a bunch of sources, but there's a theory that he started using TOR marketplaces after the IDF turned him down (He had something in his brain ircc). The kid is a genius if he managed to do all this and not get caught for that long of a time as police here are quick to crack down on everything Darknet related. He could've used his skills for good... Kind of sad actually.

I don't get why Trump is demanding payment FOLLOWING installation. This is something you negotiate before you install if you're looking to sell it. This looks tacky as fuck.

So nobody here mentioning this paragraph from the article, which states that there actually already is an agreement in place about who pays for what which Trump now suddenly wants to change?

Seoul retorted that under the Status of Forces Agreement that governs the US military presence in the country, the South would provide the THAAD site and infrastructure while the US would pay to deploy and operate it.

Trump sure seems to be hanging on to the idea that he can convince other countries to pay for things he wants by blustering about it on Twitter.

Trump is as tacky as it gets. Fuckin nouveau riche as fuck... selling out his stupid name for steaks for fucks sake

China's going to be pissed. These idiots just don't know when to stop.

Time to see how the Trump administration deals with this. They explicitly told them to stop testing, and they did anyway

Hopefully China is pissed. We need their support.
