Iraqi Christians revisit ghost town abandoned by Islamic State | Reuters

By Ulf Laessing | BARTELLA, Iraq BARTELLA, Iraq A damaged picture of Jesus and a CD from his daughter's wedding were pretty much all Iraqi Christian Said Shaba found when he returned to the ransacked house he had to flee when Islamic State arrived two and a half years ago.The militants stole a safe with his savings and set the two-storey house ablaze before Iraqi forces pushed them out a month ago from the northern town of Bartella as part of a campaign to retake nearby Mosul, the group's last stronghold in Iraq.With the jihadists using suicide car bombers to stop an army advance on Mosul located just 20 km (12 miles) away, Bartella remains a tense ghost town.Black army Humvees patrol the potholed streets where Islamic State fighters set homes on fire, while rows of shops and restaurants have been flattened during fighting.But tired of living with his seven-member family in a rented house in nearby Erbil, Shaba and other Christians came to check on their houses for the first time since fleeing Bartella in 2014 when Islamic State seized Mosul and much of Iraq's north."They destroyed and stole everything. #United States #Middle East #Family #Entertainment #House #Christianity

Bahrain blocks exit of activist's wife-rights groups | Reuters

DUBAI Bahrain authorities prevented the wife of a Bahraini dissident and their infant son, a U.S. citizen, from boarding a flight to London after he staged a protest against a visit by the Gulf state's king to Britain, human rights groups said.Sayed Ahmed AlWadaei, director of advocacy at the UK-based Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy, was one of two activists briefly detained by police in London when they shouted at the king's car as it approached Prime Minister Theresa May's office on Wednesday.Hours later, the exile's Bahraini wife, Duaa, 25, and their 19-month-old son were detained for seven hours at Bahrain airport as they tried to fly out of the kingdom to join him in London, rights groups said.In a statement, the Bahrain government said it briefly detained Duaa AlWadaei for questioning and a search, saying the king's presence in Britain and the discovery in Bahrain in recent times of weapons and explosives meant "precautionary security measures were necessary". #United States #Middle East #Europe #Family #Government #Iran #activist

Surrogacy Bill pushing for RSS' 'adarsh samsaar': Who decides what is a family anyway?

The bill has brought in a totally fallacious phrase called “altruistic surrogacy” that restricts this right to married couples with or without children who wish for another child and can procure it through the serves of a distant relative for surrogacy. #Supreme Court #Family #CriticalPoint #RSS #Surrogacy #Maneka Gandhi #maternity leave #Paternity leave #heterosexual #Homosexual #New surrogacy bill
