SHARIA POLICE: Woman LASHED 100 times for standing near a man – could it happen here?

The sickening punishment was carried out by the nation’s Sharia police in front of a baying mob, including children, who watched on as the woman cried out in pain. 

Crowds watch as the woman crouched on the floor and was whipped for her “crime” before she was rushed to hospital. 

The 30-year-old woman, only known as Mazidah, collapsed from her injuries inflicted by the masked enforcer, known as Algojo. which means ‘the executioner’ in Indonesian. 

In harrowing scenes, 100 lashes were doled out to the woman who had been found guilty of being in close proximity to a man who was not her husband by the Sharia courts.

She had allegedly broken the strict Sharia law in the province of Aceh in Indonesia – a popular sunny getaway for many Britons.

Another man was publicly lashed for indecent behaviour with a minor. 

It is belived the punishment had to be stopped at times for each of the three people because of the screaming. 

Sharia guards often dole out cruel punishment for violating Islamic law.

Sharia law is the legal system of Islam which is derived from both the Koran and the rulings of the religion’s scholars.

Islamic laws have been strengthened since the Aceh province struck a peace deal with the central government in 2005. 

Banda Aceh has also banned women from entertainment venues after 11pm unless they are accompanied by a husband or male family member.

More than 90 per cent of Indonesians identify themselves as Muslim.

In May, the province saw the first public caning of two gay men under Sharia law. 

Homosexuality, alcohol and gambling are listed as crimes under the barbaric Islamic laws. 

There are thought to be around 100 unofficial Sharia Law courts operating throughout the UK, dispensing Islamic justice outside the remit of our own legal system. 

Theresa May sparked concenrs she would be lenient towards the Islamic law before she became prime minister when she claimed many Britons “benefit a great deal” from Sharia Law.

Todd Bowles still hasn’t settled on who Jets’ backup QB will be

Todd Bowles might have settled on a backup quarterback, but he isn’t revealing that information to the public.

For the second straight week, Bowles is refusing to name a No. 2 signal-caller. The Jets face the Raiders in Oakland on Sunday.

Christian Hackenberg served as the backup in the Jets’ season-opening loss to the Bills, but a source told the Daily News that was only because Bryce Petty was not entirely healed from a Grade 1 MCL sprain in his left knee. Petty has said repeatedly, including Wednesday, that he is healthy. He’s participated fully in every practice since the start of the regular season.

When asked Wednesday if Hackenberg will be his backup again this week, Bowles said, “I haven’t decided on that yet.”

Bowles said it’s possible he could spend the rest of the season deciding on a backup for each game. But he also noted there’s a chance he names a permanent backup at some point in 2017.

“It could go either way,” Bowles said.

Obviously, the coaching staff conducted its most significant evaluation of Hackenberg and Petty during OTAs, training camp and the preseason. At this point, Bowles, offensive coordinator John Morton and quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates know what they have in both players.

So what factors play into Bowles’ choice on the backup quarterback?

“Just my decision,” Bowles said.

Petty admitted there’s not much he can do at this juncture to win the job.

“It’s not really about that. I think that part is already done with OTAs, training camp, preseason,” Petty told the Daily News. “So now it’s all about the Jets. It’s about what we can do as a team, as an offense to make sure that we’re in the win column.”

Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg are apparently both still in the running to backup Josh McCown.

Naturally, though, Petty would rather be active than inactive on Sundays.

“At the same time, I don’t sit there and sulk on why,” Petty said. “I would much rather see this locker room win. That’s really how I view it and how I see it and how I’ve done it since I’ve been here. Obviously as a competitor you want to be out there, but it’s what’s best for the team.”

INJURY REPORT

TE Jordan Leggett (knee), LB Bruce Carter (sprained ankle), TE Eric Tomlinson (sprained elbow) and S Rontez Miles (fractured eye socket) all didn’t practice Wednesday. Bowles did not rule any of the four players out for Sunday’s game in Oakland.

LB Edmond Robinson (groin) and CB Morris Claiborne (sore ankle) were limited.

Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi make DACA deal with Trump at W.H.

Pass the duck sauce, and hold the wall.

The top House and Senate Democrats announced an immigration reform package Wednesday that will protect Dreamers and provide border security, following a dinner meeting with President Trump in the White House at which they had Chinese food.

The agreement does not include funding for Trump’s long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexican border.

It does protect 800,000 immigrants, known as Dreamers, who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children. The immigrants’ lives were upended when the Trump administration decided to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA, which shielded them from deportation.

Nancy Pelosi, Trump law boss mull border security to save DACA

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi joined Trump and several cabinet members for dinner, continuing the Republican President’s sudden outreach to the other side of the aisle, which has horrified his GOP colleagues.

“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” Schumer and Pelosi said in a joint statement after the meal deal.

The agreement specifies bipartisan legislation called the DREAM Act that provides eventual citizenship for the young immigrants, a source told The Associated Press.

(J. Scott Applewhite/AP, Stephen Lovekin/WireImage, Andrew Harnik/AP)

Trump and the two top Democrats were joined by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, White House chief of staff John Kelly and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney.

Pope Francis says Trump DACA repeal not ‘pro-life’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, the top two Republicans in Congress, were noticeably absent.

Ryan told the AP he was meeting with Pelosi before her dinner, and the two of them planned to discuss immigration reform.

For most of this year, Trump has made the Senate and House minority leaders some of his biggest targets in Congress.

He has called Schumer a “clown” and “Fake Tears Chuck” because the New York senator became weepy at a protest of Trump’s travel ban. Californian Pelosi, meanwhile, was derided as a “loser” and a liar.

Stephen Bannon says he fears DACA will ignite GOP civil war

But Trump stunned Congress last week when he struck an unexpected deal with the Democrats on debt ceiling and government spending legislation, shunning discussions he held with Republican leaders and his own staff.

He later fired off a tweet reassuring Dreamers — at Pelosi’s request.

After another bipartisan meeting at the White House earlier in the day, Trump told reporters, “More and more we’re trying to work things out together.”

The fate of Trump’s beloved wall, which he has vowed Mexico will eventually fund, remains to be seen.

New Yorkers protest ‘sociopath’ Trump’s move to end DACA

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders countered the Dems’ claim that the barricade was off the table.

“While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to,” she tweeted.

Trump later enjoyed an after-dinner tweet, taking aim at his least favorite Democrat and her new book.

“Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and everything) but herself for her election loss. She lost the debates and lost her direction!” Trump wrote of his presidential rival.

Mnuchin requested a government jet for his honeymoon: report

That’s plane outrageous.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin requested a government jet for his honeymoon to Scotland, France and Italy last month, sources said.

Mnuchin, who married the Scottish-born actress Louise Linton in a ceremony officiated by Vice President Michael Pence in June, submitted a written request for his honeymoon in August, sources told ABC.

The request for the U.S. Air Force jet, which could have cost around $ 25,000 every hour, is being reviewed by the Treasury Department’s Office of Inspector General, the sources said.

A spokesperson for the Treasury Department issued a statement saying Mnuchin, a member of the National Security Council was concerned about maintaining a secure method of communication during his travel.

A scandal also erupted after Linton flaunted her designer duds in an Instagram photo of her disembarking the government plane in Kentucky.

The request was eventually deemed unnecessary when it became apparent he could access secure communication through other means, the spokesperson said.

The Inspector General is already reviewing Linton and Mnuchin’s trip to Kentucky on August 21 after a government watchdog group questioned whether it was planned around viewing the solar eclipse from just outside to path of totality.

A scandal also erupted after Linton flaunted her designer duds in an Instagram photo of her disembarking the government plane in Kentucky.

When Jenni Miller, a mother of three from Oregon, left a comment calling the 36-year-old “deplorable”, Linton went on the offensive in a long-winded tirade that branded her “adorably out of touch”.

Linton later apologized, and a Treasury spokesperson defended Mnuchin, saying he obtained the appropriate approval for the official visit and reimbursed the government for his wife’s travel.

It is unusual for White House officials to travel on military aircraft unless they deal directly with national security.

Google and YouTube spark outrage by BANNING vital North Korean videos from their websites

, and its parent company Google, made the decision to remove the channels which was met with anger from researchers desperate for a glimpse into the ultra-secretive nation.

Nonproliferation expert Joshua Pollack took to Twitter to criticise the move.

He said: “Basically, this hurts efforts to track activities of interest in a closed country — at the worst possible time.”

Tensions between and the US are close to erupting as aggressive rhetoric from Donald Trump is met with further provocative nuclear tests from Pyongyang.

Mr Pollack tweeted Google and YouTube saying: “We have a problem. Please restore North Korea-related channels ASAP. They are primary sources for researchers.”

Before they were deleted the online video channels carried clips from North Korea state TV and propaganda.

One of the channels on the popular social video website, Uriminzokkiri, had gathered millions of views from users.

A short message posted by YouTube claimed the site had been removed “due to a legal complaint”.

Footage carried on the Uriminzokkiri propaganda channel made worldwide news in 2013 after appearing to threaten the US by showing the White House in crosshairs and imagined an attack on the country.

North Korean analysts have previously scoured video footage from the channels for clues about ’s missiles and nuclear weapons.

Experts have hoped to understand what Pyongyang is telling its own people and what messages they wish to send to the rest of the world.

Researcher, Curtis Melvin, wrote an open letter to YouTube’s parent company Google to highlight the importance of the resource.

Mr Curtis’s letter read: “These North Korean videos are… indispensable sources of information for us on the outside.”

A YouTube spokesman: “We love that YouTube is a powerful platform for documenting events and shining light on dark corners around the world, but we must comply with the law.

“We disable accounts that repeatedly violate our community guidelines or terms of service and when we are required by law to do so.”

The channels did not have adverts so the cruel regime was not making any money from them, experts pointed out.

Mr Curtis, of the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University, suggested the action could be the result of harsh new sanctions drafted by the US and adopted by the UN could be to blame.

The sanctions will see North Korea banned from obtaining liquid natural gas and from exporting textile.

Jay Bruce: Trade to Indians saved me from ‘least fun’ Mets

CHICAGO — Jay Bruce is much happier now that he’s not on the Mets.

On Aug. 1, Bruce seemed resigned to making the best of a bad situation. The outfielder the Mets shopped for basically nine months watched the non-waiver trade deadline go by and no team made a deal for him. He thought he’d be on a team fighting its way to a World Series, but the Mets’ injuries and poor play had him facing two months of playing out the stretch.

A few weeks later, Bruce is fighting for a pennant and making some history.

The outfielder hit a three-run homer on Wednesday as the Indians beat the Tigers, 5-3, for their historic 21st win in a row, tying the Cubs for the second-longest winning streak in baseball history.

“I pretty much went from the least fun situation in baseball to the most fun,” Bruce told reporters after the Indians surpassed the 2002 A’s record of 20 consecutive wins in a 5-3 victory over Detroit.

“That’s no slight to the Mets at all. … I just wanted to be a part of something bigger than myself.”

Bruce is part of something special in Cleveland, something that hasn’t happened in 116 years.

“You can’t ask for anything more,” Bruce said. “This team was awesome before I got here. I’m happy if I can help out where I can.”

The three-run shot was his 34th homer of the season and his fifth with the Indians.

He was the heart of the Mets lineup this season after struggling to finish the year before. The Mets traded for Bruce in a deal that sent infield prospect Wilson Herrera to the Reds at the trade deadline in 2016. He hit .219 with eight homers and 19 RBI in 50 games. The Mets had traded for him in part as insurance against having Yoenis Cespedes opt out of his contract, which he did. When the Mets re-signed Cespedes last winter, however, the Mets tried to trade him. They found no takers.

Bruce has told people in the Mets organization he would consider re-signing with the team this winter, but there are at least three other teams ahead of them on his “wish” list as the 30-year old reaches free agency for the first time.

Banner hung at Fenway Park: ‘Racism is as American as baseball'

Racism has once again become a topic of discussion at Fenway Park.

Fans at Wednesday’s Red Sox-Athletics game in Boston decided to unfurl a controversial banner that read “Racism is as American as baseball,” prompting the umpires to ask security to remove the fans and their banner, according to multiple reports.

It wasn’t clear exactly what message the fans were attempting to share at first, but one of them clarified later to the Boston Globe that it was anti-racism.

“The banner came in response to the racist comments at the beginning of the season at Fenway,” one of the banner holders, who remains unnamed, said, citing the story Orioles star Adam Jones shared in May about getting peanuts thrown at him and being called the N-word on multiple occasions. “Overall, we saw, we see Boston continually priding itself as a kind of liberal, not racist city, and are reminded also constantly that it’s actually an extremely segregated city.

Red Sox apologize to Orioles, Adam Jones after racial incident

“It has been for a long time, and that no white people can avoid the history of racism, essentially. So we did this banner as a gesture towards that, to have a conversation about that.”

It’s still unclear as to how they managed to get that monstrosity to the Green Monster. Seriously, that thing is massive.

The banner is just the latest racial incident to go down at Fenway Park this year.

In May, Jones called his treatment from fans at Fenway Park “unfortunate.”

Orioles’ Adam Jones says Red Sox fans called him N-word

“Very unfortunate. I heard there was 59 or 60 ejections tonight in the ballpark. It is what it is, right,” Jones said at the time. “I just go out and play baseball. It’s unfortunate that people need to resort to those type of epithets to degrade another human being. I’m trying to make a living for myself and for my family.”

Other major leaguers, including CC Sabathia, Curtis Granderson and Matt Kemp, all echoed that they’ve endured similar experiences, especially in Boston.

Anthony Weiner Begs Judge For Mercy So He Can Make Good with Huma, Son

Anthony WeinerSpare Me Judge!I’m Getting Better for Huma and Our Son

9/13/2017 9:23 PM PDT

Breaking News

Anthony Weiner says he’s turned a corner in his recovery, and he’s asking a judge to show leniency when he’s sentenced for sending obscene material to a minor.

Weiner fired off the letter to the judge in his case, saying, “I am 345 days off my destructive behaviors and have a daily practice to help me never return to them.” Those behaviors include his multiple sexting scandals … the last of which involved his lewd online communication with a 15-year-old. Weiner pleaded guilty, and will be sentenced Sept. 25.

The letter, obtained by TMZ, contains repeated references to his treatment and deep regret for continually humiliating his wife, Huma Abedin, and crushing her aspirations — a clear reference to her role as Hillary Clinton‘s trusted longtime aide.

Weiner also describes how he plans to explain his actions to their toddler son when he gets older. He writes, “I’ll tell him I was a guy who did a very bad thing to a young person I never met. I’ll tell him I put his amazing mother through years of trauma and broke her heart.”

Huma filed for divorce the day Weiner entered his guilty plea.

The judge could give Weiner a maximum sentence of 10 years in federal prison, although sentencing guidelines recommend 21 to 27 months.

He closed the letter with … “Every day I quietly do what I can to keep getting better, and to fix the damage I’ve done. I have much more work to do. Please show me grace so that I may continue.”

Sean Spicer passes blame on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Sean Spicer isn’t used to cheers.

The former White House press secretary joined Jimmy Kimmel Wednesday night and said the applause from the audience was a welcome relief — but insisted that people have thanked him for his service.

Spicer left his position at the White House in July after Anthony Scaramucci was named communications director, but stayed with the administration until the end of August.

But Kimmel was more interested in how his employment began, not ended: a fight with the press corps over the attendance at President Trump’s inauguration.

“The President wanted to make sure the record got straight,” Spicer said.

“There was a faction of people out there that didn’t want to give him the credit that he rightly deserved. And I think he takes that personally. A lot of people, in the media in particular, constantly sought to undermind the validity of that election.”

The former press secretary also insisted he’s never seen Trump naked when Kimmel asked about the President’s obsession with size.

Spicer also said that he had little choice in what he said at the lectern: whatever Trump says goes.

“Your job is to give him advice,” Spicer said, “but ultimately he’s the President.”

But even out of the White House, Spicer is still defending Trump’s alternative facts.

“You can look at an argument or a set of facts and come out with one opinion…and someone else can come up with a different conclusion,” he said.

“That’s what makes our country great.”

The former press secretary also said he never tried to pre-approve Trump’s tweets, no matter how problematic they became late into the night, calling social media “one of the President’s most effective tools in the campaign.”

Spicer said President Trump made him address the inauguration size during his first press briefing.

As for his hostile relationship with the press, Spicer blamed reporters for “perpetuating myths.”

He hedged when Kimmel pointed out that Trump does the same thing, but instead said “the press corps attacks the President or undermines him or calls into question his credibility.”

Spicer also denied that he left the White House over personal problems with Scaramucci, but said the New York financier didn’t have “the qualifications or the background to work in the communications office.”

As for the New Yorker article, in which Scaramucci unloaded an R-rated tirade at a reporter, Spicer said he wouldn’t “relish in someone else’s problems,” but that the outbursts “proved my point.”

He ended the late night appearance by insisting that Trump does, in fact, want to be President.
