Muslim beats and kicks his 9-year-old daughter to death for making mistakes while reciting the Quran

Here is more on the story that the Geller Report brought you on February 4. At that time we learned that this violently abusive father would recite the Quran during the night. Now in this new story we learn that he beat and kicked his little nine-year-old daughter for making mistakes in her recitation of the Quran. This once again reinforces the obvious fact that Islam is inextricably tied to violence. The book and its accompanying brutality are drilled into children. This monstrous father was once a nine-year-old child himself, learning the Quran and imbibing and internalizing its violent tenets. This is the result, and this is not by any means the only time this kind of thing has happened.

“Soldier charged with murder of nine-year-old daughter,” Malaysiakini, February 12, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A soldier was charged in the Port Dickson Magistrate’s Court today with the murder of his nine-year-old daughter last month.

According to Bernama, Mohammad Abdullah Mohamed, 35, nodded after the charge was read out before magistrate Siti Khariah Abdul Razak, but no plea was recorded.

Mohammad Abdullah is accused of murdering Nur Aina Nabihah at Taman Vista Jaya in Lukut, Port Dickson, between 8.30pm and 11.30pm on Jan 31 this year….

According to reports, police detained the suspect and the child’s 34-year-old stepmother on Feb 1, after the girl died in the Seremban Hospital after being found unconscious at home. The woman has since been released on bond.

The child had various injuries on her body, including a punctured intestine, damaged liver and broken ribs.

Some reports stated that Nur Aina was subjected to a commando-like routine by the suspect, who is her biological father.

This included doing push-ups, sit-ups, rollovers and squats. She was also reportedly beaten, among others, with a plastic chair and belt, slapped, kicked and even stomped on.

The child was made to undergo these “punishments” because Nur Aina did not recite prayers before bedtime, made mistakes while reciting the Quran, or did not obey the man’s instructions, reports said.

Muslim couple beat their four children because they were ‘too Western’

What are the chances that this couple — and their children — will assimilate, adopt Western values, and become loyal, stable, productive members of Belgian society? Right, there is no chance of that whatsoever. And how many more Muslim migrants are there just like this couple in Belgium already, with many more on the way? What will Belgium look like in ten years? Twenty? By then, incidents like this one will not be prosecuted in Belgian courts. They will be taken as a matter of course.

“Belgium: Muslim couple beat up their four children because they are ‘too Western,’” Voice of Europe, February 15, 2018:

Police in the Belgian city of Waregem arrested a Tunisian couple for battering their four children.

The reason for this ill-treatment is that the children are “too Western” according to their parents. During a dispute the 16-year-old daughter was hit with a belt in the face and was seriously injured.

The police interfered during the fight and arrested the father and the mother of the children. According to the prosecutor’s office all children were maltreated. The couple also had plans to send their children to Tunisia, an Islamic country with between 98 and 99 per cent Muslims….

Washington Post: ‘Domestic abuse’ was ‘terrifying connection’ between Muslim terrorists Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Omar Mateen

Tamerlan Tsarnaev was the Boston Marathon jihad bomber. He had vowed to die for Islam. His brother and accomplice, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, said that his brother carried out the Boston jihad attack because he wanted to defend Islam.

Omar Mateen was the Pulse Nightclub jihad mass murderer. He said on 911 calls that he made during pauses in committing his murders: “I pledge my allegiance to (unidentifiable name) on behalf of the Islamic State” and “Call me Mujahideen, call me the Soldier of God.”

So what is the “terrifying connection” between Tsarnaev and Mateen? Islam. But Leslie Morgan Steiner is part of the American intelligentsia that views Islam as a religion of peace no matter how high the jihad body count gets. It would be “Islamophobic” for her to think otherwise. So what is the “terrifying connection” between Tsarnaev and Mateen as far as she is concerned? “Domestic abuse.”

Yeah, sure, that’s it. This willful ignorance is going to get people killed. Am I exaggerating in saying that? No. As long as law enforcement and intelligence officials continue to be just as adamant in refusing to see the obvious as Leslie Morgan Steiner and the Washington Post are, and there are many officials who fit that description, they will miss clues that could have enabled them to stop jihad attacks. The Russians told the FBI that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was frequenting jihad groups just as the FBI was adopting a policy that eliminated all mention of Islam and jihad from counterterror training, so the Feds disregarded the Russian warning. The Boston Marathon jihad attack might have been prevented if the FBI hadn’t been so determined to adopt politically correct fictions instead of dealing with unpleasant realities.

Leslie Morgan Steiner, reporter for the Washington Post

“Maybe it’s not surprising the White House kept Rob Porter around,” by Leslie Morgan Steiner, Washington Post, February 8, 2018 (thanks to Darcy):

It’s incredible what certain kinds of men get away with.

My handsome, clean-cut ex-husband was offered Wall Street jobs and hedge-fund investments despite the fact that I had police documentation that he’d strangled me, held loaded guns to my head and abused me violently throughout our marriage….

The stakes of such blindness are high. As we’ve seen too often in recent years, allowing abusers sustained access to unchecked power doesn’t threaten only wives, girlfriends and children. Co-workers, neighbors and the general public can be at risk, too. Think Devin Patrick Kelley from Sutherland Springs, Tex. Tamerlan Tsarnaev and the Boston Marathon. Omar Mateen and the Pulse nightclub. Domestic abuse was the terrifying connection between these men. We need to take it so much more seriously….

VIDEO: French Judge Orders Jail for Islamic ‘Reformer’ Tariq Ramadan Over Rape Charges

A judge in France just ruled that a prominent Islamic scholar arrested and jailed on preliminary rape charges must stay behind bars.

The ruling was apparently fueled by the recommendations of the prosecutor’s office.

The case involves Tariq Ramadan, who was placed under investigation just a few days ago for incidents that allegedly occurred in 2009 and 2012.

Here’s a previous interview with Ramadan:

Robert Spencer with Jihad Watch writes:

I blinked at the AP headline. It is so rare to see justice done to the wealthy and powerful, especially someone who has for so long been the darling of the political and media elites, I couldn’t believe it at first. Ramadan will still likely skate: there are too many well-placed Muslim Brotherhood operatives and sympathizers in the government of France, and governments all over the West, for any other outcome to be likely. Still, the thought of him behind bars must bring some small comfort to his accusers, who have detailed far greater horrors to which he subjected them.

It is useful to remember that some people knew for years about Tariq Ramadan’s behavior. Bernard Godard, who was the “Monsieur Islam” of the French Ministry of the Interior and knew Ramadan well, said: “That he had many mistresses, that he consulted sites, that girls were brought to the hotel at the end of his lectures, that he invited them to undress, that some resisted and that he could become violent and aggressive, yes, but I have never heard of rapes, I am stunned.”

Why didn’t Godard act, knowing that “some” of the women whom Tariq Ramadan “invited to undress…resisted and that he could become violent and aggressive”? You know the answer: “Monsieur Islam” was afraid of being smeared as an “Islamophobe.” Tariq Ramadan’s entire rise to positions of influence and power can be attributed solely and wholly to his pose as a “Muslim reformer,” and to the Western intelligentsia’s avid desire to showcase such people in order to show that they are not “Islamophobic,” and are on board with the diversity/multiculturalism project. His rise certainly cannot be attributed to his wisdom and insight.

This was the story from AP:

A French judge decided on Tuesday to keep prominent Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan in detention, four days after he was handed preliminary rape charges in cases alleged by women who sought his counsel.

A judicial official, who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about the cases, said the decision followed the recommendation of the prosecutor’s office.

Ramadan was placed under investigation on Feb. 2 for an alleged rape resulting from a 2009 encounter and for the alleged rape of a vulnerable person in a 2012 case. Both women filed the complaints last year.

Ramadan, in custody since Jan. 31, denies any wrongdoing.

Ramadan had sought to buy some time before the judge ordered him kept in decision, saying last week after being charged that he wanted to postpone the required “debate” before any decision on remaining in jail. The tactic apparently didn’t work.

Ramadan, 55, is on leave from Britain’s Oxford University, where he is a professor of contemporary Islamic studies. He travels frequently and has written numerous books on Islam and the integration of Muslims in Europe.

It was not known how long he could remain locked up. Under French law, the order to hold him in “provisional detention” can last one year and include two consecutive six-month renewals thereafter. However, a suspect’s time in custody can be cut short at any time if a judge agrees detention is no longer warranted….

The judicial official said that in ordering Ramadan to remain in jail, the judge was either weighing the well-being of the women behind the case or assuring that the scholar does not leave France while the investigation is in progress. …

Beaten for rejecting being groped: Shocking photos show bloodied Swedish teen attacked in a nightclub

The new Sweden, rape capital of Europe, now makes news for these horrors and these horrors alone. And you must not speak of it. In Sweden, comments that object to sexual violence against women in the Quran are prosecuted.

SMASHED WITH A BOTTLE FOR REJECTING BEING GROPED: SHOCKING PHOTOS SHOW BLOODIED SWEDISH WOMAN ATTACKED IN A NIGHTCLUB AFTER MAN PUT HIS HANDS BETWEEN HER LEGS

  • Sophie Johansson, 19, was assaulted in a nightclub in Malmo, Sweden
  • Unknown man grabbed her between the legs, so she pushed him away
  • The man then punched her and later hit her over the head with a bottle
  • Malmo police has shelved the investigation due to lack of evidence
  • Police are now appealing for witnesses in order to reopen the case

Smashed with a bottle for rejecting being groped: Shocking photos show bloodied Swedish woman attacked in a nightclub after man put his hands between her legs

A teenager has told how a man smashed a bottle over her head in a nightclub in Malmo, Sweden, after he sexually assaulted her and she pushed him away.

Sophie Johansson, 19, told Swedish media that she had never met the man before, and that she suddenly felt his hands on her bottom and between her legs on the dancefloor.

She says she hit him in order to get him to stop, to which he responded by punching her in the face and then hitting her with a glass bottle.

Attacked: Shocking image of Sophie Johansson, 19, after she was bottled by a man when she rebuffed him for groping her in a nightclub in Malmo, Sweden

Shocking images shared on social media show her face and body covered in blood after the late-night attack this weekend.

Miss Johansson says she had been enjoying her evening at Babel night club on Saturday when she felt a tug on her handbag and turned around to face a man she did not recognise.

‘I turned around and then I felt his hand on my bottom and between my legs,’ she told Aftonbladet.

After rebuking the man, whom she describes as 5ft 10in in his mid-20s with dark hair, he punched her in the face with a closed fist.

Saying she did not want to escalate the situation, Miss Johansson and her friend moved to leave the club, at which point the man hit her with a bottle on the left side of her head, breaking it.

‘I thought it was liquid from the bottle [on my face], but then my friend said there was blood pouring down. I was in shock,’ she told the paper.

Miss Johansson was rushed to hospital where she was treated for several cuts on her head, some which required stitches, and a police report was filed on aggravated assault and causing actual bodily harm.

No witnesses: Police have been forced to shelve the investigation due to lack of evidence to help identify the attacker

However, just days after the incident in the night club, Malmo Police have been forced to shelve the investigation due to a lack of evidence to help identify the assailant.

Nils Norling, Malmo Police spokesperson told Aftonbladet: ‘We hope that someone has seen something, seen the incident. If so, we will open up the investigation again,’ says

Babel nightclub has published a statement on their Facebook where they say they have handed over all available material to police and urge witnesses to contact authorities.

This is not the first time the night club has been the scene of a serious incident, as it was bombed just months ago by unknown attackers.

Witnesses say they saw a man drive away on a moped shortly before a ‘powerful’ explosion blew the doors off the club on November 3, 2017.

Babel was closed at the time of the attack, and no-one was injured.

MEDIA BLACKOUT: Five Muslim Terrorists in U.S. Courts You’ve Never Heard Of…

The media hardly mentioned that five U.S. jihadis were in court last week. My latest in PJ Media:

Edward Archer

The establishment media remains committed to the narrative that Muslims are far more often victims of “Islamophobia” than perpetrators of terrorist activity, and so many jihadis in the U.S. get scant press attention.

Just in the last week, five Muslims were involved in courtroom proceedings connected with jihad terror activity. Clearly the jihad against Americans, and against the United States as an entity, is ongoing.

But you are not likely to hear about these five men from the mainstream news.

  1. Ikaika Kang

Fox News reported Tuesday that “a Hawaii-based Army soldier was obsessed with videos depicting terrorism beheadings, suicide bombings and other violence and he watched them in his bedroom for hours every day, a confidential informant told agents who put a tracking device on the soldier’s car during an investigation that led to an indictment charging him with attempting to support the Islamic State (ISIS) group.”

Kang, according to the informant, would watch these videos for four to five hours daily. Once the informant joined him, and “remembered feeling sick to his stomach, while Kang laughed and insulted the victims.” Kang said “that if he were to do something like shoot up a large gathering, it would be out of his hatred for white people, the wicked and non-Muslims.”

  1. Edward Archer

In Philadelphia on Thursday, the trial of Edward Archer began. Archer is a convert to Islam who, in January 2016, shot a Philadelphia police officer thirteen times at close range (and failed to kill him). When Judge Leon Tucker asked Archer to enter a plea, Archer replied: “I don’t plead to anyone but Allah.”

Edward Archer said he shot Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett because “police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.”

But Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, who is one of the bigger fools on this planet, immediately announced that the shooting had “nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.” This denial and willful ignorance is no way to win a war, and a very good way to lose it.

  1. Joshua Cummings

On Thursday in Denver, a convert to Islam named Joshua Cummings got a life sentence for the murder of Scott Van Lanken, a Denver transit security guard. Cummings, like Kang, had served in the Army. More recently, however, he had pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS), and in January 2017, he came up behind Van Lanken and shot him in the neck.

Investigators say they have found no link between this brutal murder and Cummings’ allegiance to ISIS.

All that means is that they haven’t found an ISIS membership card in Cummings’ wallet, or phone records showing that he talked to anyone in Iraq or Syria. In reality, Cummings was heeding the call that the Islamic State issued in September 2014:

So O muwahhid, do not let this battle pass you by wherever you may be. You must strike the soldiers, patrons, and troops of the tawaghit. Strike their police, security, and intelligence members, as well as their treacherous agents.

  1. Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham

Also on Thursday, a Muslim named Mahad Abdiaziz Adbiraham pleaded guilty to stabbing two people last November at the Mall of America in Minnesota.

In a statement, he explained why: Abdiraham said he was answering the “call for jihad by the Chief of Believer, Abu-bakr Al-baghdadi, may Allah protect him, and by the Mujahiden of the Islamic State. … I understand that the two men I stabbed know and have explained the reason for my attack, and I am here reaffirming that it was indeed an act of Jihad in the way of Allah.” He added that Americans would never be safe as long as “your country is at war with Islam.”

This stabbing incident was initially reported as an “interrupted theft,” with no indication that it was jihad.

It took the perpetrator himself, not the media, to explain that America had suffered yet another jihad terror attack.

  1. Isse Aweis Mohamud

According to NBC Chicago, Isse Aweis Mohamud “was sentenced Friday for lying on his passport application.” He said that he planned to visit Canada, but went to Egypt instead. In Egypt, he was arrested; then Egyptian authorities sent him back to the United States.

What was he doing in Egypt, why was he detained there, and why did he lie?

“The FBI began investigating Mohamud in April 2017 after his family in Kansas City reported him missing and said they were worried he had gone overseas to take part in jihadi [sic].”

Despite all this, prosecutors say they “found no direct evidence of terrorism activity by Mohamud.” That’s not exactly reassuring, considering that the FBI wouldn’t know jihad activity from Shinola. Remember, it was former FBI Director Robert Mueller who purged the FBI of all training materials linking Islam to jihad terror….

Muslim migrants sexually assault mother with toddler in stroller

Are we diverse enough yet?

“They had a dark complexion and spoke in a foreign language.”

That’s the only clue that TAG24 gives as to the identity of the perpetrators, and it is enough for those who know how to read the tea leaves of the establishment media, but it does leave the unfortunate impression that opposition to the Muslim migrant influx is a racial issue. While there is nothing wrong with wanting to preserve one’s cultural identity and not become a minority in one’s own country, one would think that even the most globalist, socialist, Leftist internationalist would oppose the mass arrival of people who believe that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

One would think wrong.

“29-year-old mother with stroller attacked by three sex offenders,” translated from “29-Jährige Mutter mit Kinderwagen von drei Sex-Tätern überfallen,” TAG24, January 23, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Gelnhausen – Simply shocking: A 29-year-old mother was on a dirt road Wednesday morning with her one-and-a-half-year-old child in the district of Höchst, going in the direction of Hartz on the road, when she was attacked by three men.

Close to a highway underpass, the culprits struck from behind, groping the mother’s legs and chest as she pushed the stroller with her son!

As a result, the 29-year-old fiercely defended herself, causing two of the three men to go down and finally run away with the stroller and save themselves from worse.

According to TAG24 information, the person concerned did not report to the police herself, but first had to be investigated….

The perpetrators were 25 to 30 years old and between 1.80 and 1.85 meters tall, slim and all dressed in black. They had a dark complexion and spoke in a foreign language….

ISIS executioner who threw gay men off buildings bribes his way out of Iraqi prison in minutes

It wasn’t just that he paid a bribe. It was also that many, many people sympathize with what he did, and — secretly, perhaps — consider Abu Omer a hero.

Abu Omer – known as “White Beard” (center)

“Isis executioner who threw gay men off buildings bribed his way out of prison in ‘minutes,’” by Josh Robbins, International Business Times, January 9, 2018:

A notorious Isis henchman accused of beheading gay men and throwing them off rooftops has escaped from police custody just minutes after being arrested in Iraq.

Abu Omer – known as “White Beard” thanks to his impressive facial hair – was arrested in Mosul at the beginning of the year. Local and international media reported his detention but now it seems that the sadistic jihadi was back on the road in no time at all.

Human rights watch group the Clarion Project described the escape as a “remarkable failure of the Iraqi justice system – [an] Isis religious leader was arrested and released just minutes later after paying a $7,500 [£5,500] bribe.”

The grisly executioner has been connected to dozens of killings inside the so-called Caliphate. Most shockingly, he appears to feature in an infamous video from 2015 that shows three men accused of homosexuality being publicly beheaded.

Describing the security debacle, local official Zuheir Hazzen el-Jaburi told Ayn Al Iraq: “I was in Mosul when a force from police intelligence arrested a man. After questioning they were told he was the mufti for the right bank of the [river in the] city – an Isis member.

“We asked people who he was, and they proved he really was an Isis mufti. After he was arrested, he left a motorbike behind. An hour later we saw the motorbike was no longer there.

“We inquired about it. They said he was released 10 minutes earlier after he paid 75 notes [$7,500].”

The official’s report was confirmed online by UN ambassador and Yazidi genocide survivor Nadia Murad. She wrote on Twitter: “We heard from media that this Isis terrorist detainee who used to slaughter people in Mosul is now set free by some corrupt officials….

Quran

Quran (7:80-84) – “…For ye practice your lusts on men in preference to women: ye are indeed a people transgressing beyond bounds…. And we rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)” – An account that is borrowed from the Biblical story of Sodom. Muslim scholars through the centuries have interpreted the “rain of stones” on the town as meaning that homosexuals should be stoned, since no other reason is given for the people’s destruction. (Inexplicably, the story is also repeated in three other suras: 15:7427:58 and 29:40).

Quran (7:81) – “Will ye commit abomination such as no creature ever did before you?” This verse is part of the previous text and it establishes that homosexuality as different from (and much worse than) adultery or other sexual sin. According to the Arabic grammar, homosexuality is called the worst sin, while references elsewhere describe other forms of non-marital sex as being “among great sins.”

Quran (26:165-166) – “Of all the creatures in the world, will ye approach males, “And leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, ye are a people transgressing”

Quran (4:16) – “If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone” This is the Yusuf Ali translation. The original Arabic does not use the word “men” and simply says “two from among you.” Yusuf Ali may have added the word “men” because the verse seems to refer to a different set than referred to in the prior verse (explicitly denoted as “your women”). In other words, since 4:15 refers to “your women”, 4:16 is presumably written to and refers to men.

New York Times pushes Iran’s propaganda in its coverage of anti-government protests

The New York Times is standing with the Islamic regime in Iran and Iran proxy Hizb’Allah, which has, like the Times, “dismissed” the protests. Here the Times gives a full airing to the mullahs’ preposterous claims that foreign agents engineered the protests. There is no entity that hates America that the Times will not stand with and propagandize for, no matter how repressive. The Islamic regime now is torturing and killing its own people, solely for the crime of not wanting to live in a sharia dictatorship. That’s enough for the destroyers and saboteurs at the Times to regard them as enemies.

This unconscionable coverage epitomizes everything that is wrong with the enemedia establishment.

“Iranians, Like Their Leaders, See Foreign Hand in Protests,” by Margaret Coker, New York Times, January 3, 2018 (thanks to Amil Imani):

LONDON — Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has blamed unnamed foreign “enemies” for the antigovernment protests that have swept his country for the past week, putting the demonstrators at risk of being accused of espionage or treason.

The accusation resonates for many Iranians, whose country has long been subject to foreign interference, from the American- and British-led coup in the 1950s to more recent efforts by the United States and Israel to sabotage Iran’s nuclear program. President Trump’s public support for the protesters has only reinforced suspicions of a foreign hand at work.

While there has been no evidence that foreign governments orchestrated the protests, several countries are now trying to decide how to support a goal they share with many of the demonstrators: a less corrupt, more democratic and more open Iranian government.

The State Department urged Iran on Tuesday not to restrict access to social media services like Instagram and messaging platforms like Telegram, which the protesters have used to spread word of anti-government gatherings. It even encouraged Iranians to use virtual private networks to sidestep government censorship, advice Iranians see as interference.

Diplomats and analysts said discussions were underway in the capitals of Britain, Israel and other countries on whether or how to support the demonstrators.

American intelligence officials and Iran watchers say the protests appear to have started organically.

The demonstrations, which are widespread and amorphous, do not match the playbook that Western intelligence agencies have used to mount covert operations in Iran — namely, sustained resource-intense operations that focus on the narrowly defined and measurable goal of sabotaging the alleged nuclear weapons program, they say.

For now, they say, the evidence points to one catalyst of the unrest: widespread discontent with the government.

“You don’t need Americans or Israeli or British intelligence to convince people in Iran that there is a small ruling elite that is controlling the country’s economy and ruining it,” says Meir Javedanfar, a lecturer on Iranian studies at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel.

A former American intelligence official said it was implausible that a foreign agency could organize protests in dozens of cities without the Iranian government catching wind of it beforehand. Additionally, Western spy agencies are leery of operations that rely on mass demonstrations, which have a high risk of failure and cannot be easily controlled, the official said.

“Certainly, the West doesn’t have the ground game to engage in that kind of activism, nor do Iran’s regional adversaries,” said Suzanne Maloney, the deputy director of the foreign policy program at the Brookings Institution and a former adviser to senior State Department officials on Iran.

That logic has not stopped Iranian officials from pointing fingers outside their borders.

On Wednesday, the government announced the arrest of an unidentified citizen of an unidentified European country who “had been trained by espionage organizations in Europe,” the Tasnim news agency reported.

Iran has also accused Saudi Arabia, its main regional rival, of fomenting unrest. On Tuesday, the head of Iran’s National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, told a Lebanese television station that the Saudis were responsible for 27 percent of all anti-Iran hashtags on Twitter….
