IRONIC: Salman Abedi called his teacher ‘Islamophobic’ for condemning suicide bombings

Considering the widespread atrocities going on in the Muslim world, there should be an outcry from Muslims condemning jihad/martyrdom suicide bombings in the name of their religion, as well as condemnation for the religiously sanctioned beating of wives, killing of gays, apostates, etc. Instead, the outcry is against anyone who speaks the truth about these atrocities committed in the name of Islam. Legitimate critics are deemed “Islamophobic,” with the ultimate goal of subjugating truth-tellers and the West under the sharia.

Map of radical Islamic terrorist attacks in Europe.

Little wonder that the budding jihadist Salman Abedi advocated for the use of the widely accepted yet still regrettable propaganda term “Islamophobia.”

Salman Abedi, Manchester suicide bomber.

“TWISTED LOGIC Salman Abedi reported teacher at his secondary school for being an Islamophobe because he condemned suicide bombers”, by Tom Michael, The Sun, May 26, 2017:

Abedi was part of an Arabic-speaking “clique” during his time at the school, The Times reports.

He is believed to have been part of a group of teens that became upset when one of their teachers brought up the topic of suicide attacks.

The teacher “asked what they thought of someone who would strap on a bomb and blow people up”, according to a source quoted by the paper.

The source said the boys then went to their RE teacher and lodged a complaint, telling them it was “Islamophobic”.

The source added: “[Abedi] was a silly boy, not very serious. He was not smart enough to be a mastermind of anything like that.”

A spokesperson for Burnage Academy said yesterday: “We feel the pain that Manchester feels. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Mancunians against terrorism in all forms.”

Pals of the evil killer yesterday revealed his wild youth of booze and drug-taking – and how he was nicknamed “Dumbo” because of his big ears.

Pictures show him grinning in a bar with three student friends and on a beach in Libya, before he is thought to have been indoctrinated.

Pals described the brainy Manchester United fan as “very jolly”.

But over the past two years he is said to have changed completely after a number of trips to Libya to visit his family.

His parents are even said to have confiscated his passport amid fears he was being radicalised.

This week it was claimed Abedi called his family in Tripoli 15 ­minutes before the attack.

His mother Samia Tabbal, 50, and father Ramadan, 51, a security officer, were born in the Libyan capital.

They emigrated to London before moving to Manchester.

Manchester-born Abedi is believed to have regularly travelled to see his family, who moved back to Tripoli following the fall of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

One friend said: “He became silent and withdrawn after a trip a ­couple of years ago. Before then he was a happy-go-lucky kid and always did well in school.

“We used to party together. He loved being around his friends and wasn’t a strict Muslim at all.

“He even used to drink alcohol and loved smoking weed, he never mentioned religion.

“He was very jolly and happy. But over the past 18 months he became withdrawn and stopped hanging around with the people he used to.

“Before that he was so boisterous, always the joker.”

They added: “But as he started visiting Tripoli he was exposed to a lot of things. It’s enough to turn the ­purest person dark.

“And that’s what happened to a lot of young men. they were told it’s their religious obligation to step up and fight….

Ramadan in Afghanistan: Muslims slaughter 18 Muslims with suicide car bomb

“Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties, for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed.” (Qur’an 9:111)

“Car bomber kills 18 in east Afghanistan on 1st day of Ramzan,” AFP, May 27, 2017:

KHOST: A suicide car bomber killed 18 people in the eastern Afghan city of Khost today, officials said, in the first major insurgent attack at the start of the holy fasting month of Ramzan.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the bombing, which provincial authorities said targeted Afghan security forces working with American troops in Khost province.

The attack is the latest in a series of assaults on Western-backed forces as the Taliban step up their annual spring offensive and the insurgency expands more than 15 years after they were toppled from power in a US-led invasion.

“A suicide car bomb in Khost province has killed 18 people and wounded six others, including two children,” said interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish.

“The target was a public bus station which was hit by the bombing. The victims were in civilian clothes and it is difficult to verify their identities at this stage.”

But provincial police chief Faizullah Ghairat said the victims were civilians and members of the elite Khost Provincial Force (KPF) working with US troops.

“The bombing took place early morning when KPF members were heading to work,” Ghairat told AFP.

The brazen attack comes just a day after at least 15 Afghan soldiers were killed when Taliban fighters attacked their base in Kandahar, in the third major insurgent assault this week on the military in the southern province.

The assault in Shah Wali Kot district followed insurgent raids earlier this week on military bases in the same area and Maiwand district, bringing the death toll among Western-backed troops to around 60.

The battlefield losses mark a stinging blow for NATO-backed Afghan forces and have raised concerns about their capacity to beat back the resurgent Taliban.

Afghan forces are beset by unprecedented casualties and blamed for corruption, desertion and “ghost soldiers” who exist on the payroll but whose salaries are usurped by fraudulent commanders.

During another deadly Taliban attack on security outposts in southern Zabul province on Sunday, local officials made desperate calls to Afghan television stations to seek attention because they were unable to contact senior authorities for help.

The pleas for attention, a major embarrassment for the Western-backed government, highlighted the disarray in security ranks.

The Taliban launched their annual spring offensive in late April, heralding a surge in fighting as the US tries to craft a new Afghan strategy.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis last month warned of “another tough year” for security forces in Afghanistan.

The United States and several NATO allies are considering sending thousands more troops to break the stalemate against the resurgent militants.

Islamic State quotes Qur’an in call to attack non-Muslims in their homes during Ramadan

If Manchester jihadi had been Palestinian, his family would have been paid by Abbas

“And as you said this morning, Mr. President, funding and rewarding terrorism must end,” Netanyahu said. “Standing next to you, President Abbas condemned the horrific attack in Manchester. I hope this heralds a real change, because if the attacker had been Palestinian, and the victims had been Israeli children, the suicide bomber’s family would have received a stipend from the Palestinian Authority. That’s Palestinian law. That law must be changed.”

PLO logo

Yes, and more must be changed as well. It is in the Palestinian Authority charter to obliterate Israel; the aim of the PLO is the “liquidation of the Zionist presence.” As Abbas indicated less than two years ago:

“We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah.”

Netanyahu and Trump’s noble hope of seeing the Palestinian law of paying terrorists changed would mean a complete shift in core perspective: the Palestinian Authority would have to give up Islam’s jihad doctrine, which Abbas would hardly be willing to do. Nonetheless, funding to the PA by American taxpayers should be cut off entirely unless and until they do change this law.

“Netanyahu Praises Trump Calling for End to Rewarding Terrorism, Demands Palestinians Change Terror Reward Law”, by David Rutz, Free Beacon, May 23, 2017:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and President Donald Trump more indirectly, called on the Palestinian Authority Tuesday to cease its policy of paying terrorists who kill Israelis and supporting their families.

During remarks in the West Bank alongside Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, the morning after a suicide bomber in England killed 22 people, Trump said violence should never be “tolerated, funded and even rewarded.”

“I was gratified that President Abbas joined the summit and committed to taking firm but necessary steps to fight terrorism and confront its hateful ideology,” Trump said……

Trump called for condemnation of such terror attacks in a “single, unified voice.”

Later on Tuesday, Netanyahu spoke before Trump at the Israel Museum and noted the statement Trump made while standing next to Abbas. While the terrorist in Manchester was condemned by Abbas, Netanyahu said, the suicide bomber’s family would have received money from the Palestinian Authority if the victims were Israelis.

“And as you said this morning, Mr. President, funding and rewarding terrorism must end,” Netanyahu said. “Standing next to you, President Abbas condemned the horrific attack in Manchester. I hope this heralds a real change, because if the attacker had been Palestinian, and the victims had been Israeli children, the suicide bomber’s family would have received a stipend from the Palestinian Authority. That’s Palestinian law. That law must be changed.”

The Washington Free Beacon reported last year that the Palestinian Authority pays terrorists and their families roughly $140 million a year, or about 10 percent of is annual budget. Official Palestinian media outlets have glorified the perpetrators of violent attacks on Israelis.

The Palestinian who killed U.S. Army veteran Taylor Force to death and wounded several others in March of 2016 was hailed on official media outlets as a “martyr.”

“We welcome every drop of blood spilled in Jerusalem. This is pure blood, clean blood, blood on its way to Allah,” Abbas said in September of 2015 on Palestinian television. “With the help of Allah, every martyr will be in heaven, and every wounded will get his reward.”

Fighting Back: AFDI’s HUGE CUNY #CancelSarsour Protest [Video]

There has been enormous press coverage surrounding my demo against CUNY’s obscene invitation to, as Milo succinctly put it, “sharia-loving, terrorist-embracing, Jew-hating, ticking time-bomb of progressive horror,” to keynote their commencement ceremonies.

The event was a smashing success, a triumph. Thousands came out in the pouring rain and cold to protest the monstrous invite to a monster.  And that was the lede story. The make-up of the crowd was the lede story. Mostly young, mixed, everything — true Americana. For me, that represents a sea change in our movement.  Seeing that, the enemedia had to spring into action. Not one hour after the event was over, the deranged left-wing New York Daily News crafted a false story headlined “Wild brawl breaks out at rally against CUNY’s commencement speaker civil-rights activist Linda Sarsour,” but of course, there was no wild brawl. Having been called out about this, they have since changed the headline to, “Milo Yiannopoulos-led protest against CUNY commencement speaker Linda Sarsour turns violent.” Wrong again: it was an AFDI protest, and it was not violent.

In a minor incident, two violent left-wing morons were arrested for attacking our people. That’s news? That’s standard operating procedure for those violent goons. But the New York Daily News wrote it up that the violent hooligans were the ones attacked. They just make this stuff up. Did they talk to any of the speakers? No. Did they talk to any of the victims of those arrested? No. The New York Daily News said there were no arrests. But there were. And of course, every other media outlet picking up on the story said that there were no arrests. Did anyone of these “journalists” even make a call to the NYPD?

The Daily Mail also covered our protest against the invitation given to a pro-terror, pro-sharia Jew-hater. What’s so telling is every major news organization picked up the Daily News fake news story about a wild brawl. There were two arrests — violent leftists, of course. It was our people who were attacked. But nowhere do you get the actual story in any of the news accounts. And we didn’t clash. The violent leftwing thugs were agitating and menacing our peaceful protest for the whole of the event.

The news story here isn’t about violence at our event. The story is that we are pushing back against this leftist/Islamic goosestepping army. Why the police put these violent morons right up against our stage is an interesting question. Read about that here.

The most accurate account of our rally is here.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Milo, John Guandolo, Nonie Darwish and David Wood gave rousing speeches to a drenched, enthusiastic crowd. It was a turning point.

The fact is that the only reason the cowards at CUNY haven’t cancelled Sarsour is that they are afraid that her coreligionists and their leftist lapdogs will blow the place up if they do.

Media outlets reported “scores” of protesters. Does this look like scores to you? It’s a whole city cross town block, 42nd street between 2nd and 3rd avenues.

The theme of our protest was this: we were mad as hell and we weren’t going to take it anymore.

“Violence erupts as Milo Yiannopoulos-led protesters chanting ‘make America great again’ clash with demonstrators after Linda Sarsour’s CUNY commencement speech,” by Simon Holmes, Mailonline, May 26, 2017:

A rally against one of City University of New York’s commencement speakers ended in a violent altercation between demonstrators and counter-protesters on Thursday.

The scuffle broke out after a band of demonstrators led by alt-right poster boy Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative political commentator Pam Geller and Assemblyman Dov Hikind took to the CUNY campus to blast its decision to select civil-rights activist Linda Sarsour as graduation speaker for its School of Public Health.

A small group of demonstrators said to be chanting ‘Make America Great Again’ supposedly surrounded and attacked 19-year-old counter-protester Heather Morris who accused the group of being ‘Nazis’.

‘They tried hitting me with their fists, their sticks, whatever they found,’ Morris told the New York Daily News after the scuffle.

‘They’re a bunch of Nazis…They probably targeted me because I’m young and I’m brown, too.’

Yiannopoulos and his small group of protesters were rallying against the University’s selection of Sarsour to be its June commencement speaker.

Sarsour rose to prominence in January as the activist who organised the Washington Women’s March soon after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

She has been accused of being an anti-semite for her support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

BDS seeks to put economic pressure on Israel until it grants Palestinian citizens full equality.

The self-proclaimed ‘Palestinian Activist’ also caused uproar after tweeting a photo of a young boy with rocks in each hand facing Israeli police, along with the words ‘the definition of courage.’

Yiannopoulos told the New York Daily News: ‘Linda Sarsour is a Sharia-loving, terrorist-embracing, Jew-hating, ticking time bomb.’

Speaking at the rally he said: ‘It’s now more important than ever to fight Islam in America and particularly its emissaries like Linda Sarsour.’

Geller in her address at the rally laid into Sarsour: ‘She’s earned a reputation as one of this country’s most vicious anti-Israel activists, she has called Netanyahu a ‘waste of skin.’

‘She tweeted a picture of a young Muslim child throwing a rock at Jews, calling him the definition of courage. Surely CUNY can do better?’

A number of CUNY professors have said opting to replace her as speaker would ‘conflict with the First Amendment and the principles of academic freedom.’

A spokesman said after the rally: ‘Some, who object to Ms. Sarsour’s positions, have called on CUNY to rescind the invitation.

‘To take such actions at a public university would violate the First Amendment as well as the principles of academic freedom.’

No arrests were made at the demonstration.

Yiannopoulos describes Linda Sarsour as a ‘Sharia-loving, terrorist-embracing, Jew-hating, ticking time bomb’

Indeed she is.

Is the Abedi family Islamikaze?

When I posted  on the NER/Iconoclast yesterday, Who shares responsibility for the Suicide Bombing at the Manchester Arena?,  we  criticized the track record of Conservative PM, Theresa May as former Home Secretary dealing with Islamist extremists in Britain’s midst.

Upon  publication  of the  NER/Iconoclast post we received an email from retired Hebrew University  Professor Raphael Israeli, author of a 2003 book, Islamikaze: Manifestations of Islamic MartyrologyIsraeli’s neologism appeared to us to  describe the  Islamic extremism of the Abedi family of Libyan refugees, among whose progeny was Salman, the  suicide bomber,  a “soldier of the Caliphate,” ISIS and Al Qaeda.  With the arrest in Libya of the father and a brother involved with  Islamic terrorism, perhaps they also might be deemed Islamikaze. 

Following the July 7, 2005 Islamikaze attacks on the London Transport system that killed 52, injuring over 700, Israeli sent a letter to then Labor PM Tony Blair. He criticized official condemnations of the worst Islamic terror attack in the UK as the act of ”criminals.” Instead  Israeli suggested the UK government should brand the native born  Muslim youths as Islamikazes.

Israeli argued  that by  identifying  them as  Islamikaze it would  communicate that  the perpetrators  of this heinous attack were committing  the “holy” act under Qur’anic doctrine. By do so they  became shahids, martyrs, sacrificing their lives to follow in the way of Allah;  jihad against Kufr, infidels, innocent fellow British citizens.

Former UK PM Tony Blair

What follows is Professor Israeli’s letter to the UK PM Tony Blair:

On Hebrew University Letterhead

14 July, 2005

The Honorable Tony Blair
Prime  Minister
London, England

Dear Mr Prime Minister,

Like with most Israelis, my heart went for you and your people during the tragedy that  has been inflicted upon you. I hear many British officials stating their “shock” that the perpetrators were British, and the British public in general expressing their incredulousness that such a home-grown plight could be permitted to develop  under the noses of the authorities.

More than two years ago my book entitled Islamikaze: Manifestations of Islamic Martyrology was published and distributed in London (Frank Cass, 2003), identifying the danger very concretely, with the names of its instigators and their deeds, including the young Britons from Leeds who were recruited and sent to Afghanistan to train for exactly this kind of horror. To my knowledge, no one in a position of responsibility heeded those warnings nor did anything about them. The wishful thinking of “peaceful Islam” and the liberal treatment of  Muslim  murderers who found refuge in Britain  overshadowed  all other considerations, and now the British common people are paying this horrendous price.

I was also struck by the announcement by the Chief of Scotland Yard to the effect that the perpetrators  were just “criminals”, thus skirting their attributes of “Muslim fundamentalists” or “Islamikaze”. Criminals  usually take their risks for economic gains which they try to enjoy by surviving and escaping punishment. Islamikaze, by contrast, are ideological murderers, who take risks and even sacrifice themselves  for an idea (of Islamic dominion) . To call them “suicide bombers” therefore, not only misses the point but may even evoke some sympathy for them and attempts to “understand” why they performed their abominable act.

A new thinking is needed, Mr Prime Minster, not only by England but also by the rest of Western countries in general if we are all to survive  and then overwhelm this relentless wave of Islamic terrorism (no other poor, disadvantaged, “frustrated” etc. group of people has ever launched such a murderous assault on  Western culture).

I have put in the mail, and will also channel via your Ambassador in Israel , the relevant pages from my book which have sounded the alarm two years ago, but were unfortunately ignored.

With my deepest respect and sympathy, I remain

Professor Raphael Israeli

Truly Yours,

Raphael Israeli

Muslim migrants behind 9 of 10 shootings in Sweden

Democrats are working furiously to bring this pox on humanity here.

Europe has strict gun control laws. But that has never stopped criminals, jihadis or terrorists from getting their claws on them.

IMMIGRANTS BEHIND 9 OF 10 SHOOTINGS IN SWEDEN

FriaTider, May 20, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Domestic.Young men with immigrant background are behind almost all murder and assassination attempts by firearms.It shows a recent survey from DN. Most of them originate in the Middle East and North Africa. Not one is Finns, although it is a large immigrant group in Sweden.

The DN survey includes 53 sentenced and 47 suspects in investigations regarding general shooting since 2013.

Most are born in the 90’s and many live at home with their parents. The use of cannabis is common.

Out of 100 people involved in assassination and murder attempts where firearms were used, 90 people have at least one foreign-born parent, according to DN’s review.

One possible explanation is “variations over time in the part of the population who have a foreign background”, writes DN.

The vast majority of men, around 80 percent, have their roots in the Middle East and northern Africa. Most come from Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, Somalia and Eritrea.

Latin Americans only occur in three of the cases, people from the Balkans in five and Finns are not in anything, DN points out.

The newspaper explains the extreme overrepresentation with the lack of jobs, for example, writes that less than 30 percent of adult Somalis have a job.

Only 40 percent of men can be linked to organized crime where there is money to earn.

The DN also points out that the darkness is large and that the review does not include casualties with suspects abducted from the investigation.

“It is a fact that the phenomenon of street violence and violence occurs in some areas, and most of those living there have been foreigners,” says sociologist Amir Rostami at Stockholm University to the newspaper.

Linda Staaf, Head of the National Operational Department’s Intelligence Unit, says that the review shows a failed integration in Sweden and that it is a larger social issue for more authorities than her to handle.

She believes that there has been a negative development of society in areas where many immigrants live, and that these areas are increasingly isolated from other Swedish society.

DN’s review also shows that most victims of shooting, both killed and injured, are foreign men.

Jihad and Martyrdom In Palestinian Authority Schoolbooks

The Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI) produced a report on Palestinian Authority schoolbooks. Read the full report here. MEMRI states:

The following are examples of references to jihad and martyrdom in Palestinian Authority schoolbooks. The references appear in books for the subjects of Islamic Studies, Arabic and Language.  

Martyrdom

An Arabic textbook for grade 7 (Part I, p. 75) features the following poem, titled “The Martyr” (for the Arabic original, see Appendix, Figure 1):

I carry my life in my hand
And cast it into the abyss of perdition.
[Give me] either a life that gladdens the heart of a friend
Or a death that strikes at the enemy.
What is a life that does not sow fear
In the safe haven [of the enemy]?
By my life, I see my death,
Yet I hasten my steps towards it.
I see myself dying without gaining my stolen right
And my hoped-for homeland.
The ring of steel is pleasant to my ear
And the stream of blood gladdens my soul
A body fallen on the barren plains,
Or devoured by the desert beasts,
Its blood painted the soil crimson
And perfumed the east wind.
He sleeps and dreams the dream of eternity
And enjoys the best of dreams.
By my life, that is a death worthy of men
And whoever craves an honorable death, here it is.

On p. 79 of the same book, students are asked to write an essay about a Palestinian or Arab female martyr (see Appendix Figure 2).

An exercise in Part II of this book (p. 49) asks students to write an essay about a martyr they knew and mention details like his name, his place of birth, how he was martyred, “society’s attitude towards his family after his martyrdom,” and the status of martyrs in Islam (see Appendix Figure 3).

Also in Part II, a grammar exercise on p. 58 uses an article from the Al-Ayyam daily on the topic of martyrdom. The article  mentions Palestinian mothers who bury their sons while ululating in joy and fathers who bury their sons while promising to sacrifice their other sons as well (see Appendix Figure 4).

In a language textbook for grade 10, an exercise on p. 51 requires students to consider the sentence: “The Khansaas of Palestine offer up their children for the sake of the victory of Allah and his Messenger.”

Khansaa is an early Islamic heroine who celebrated the martyrdom of her sons who died waging jihad (see Appendix Figure 5).

An exercise on p. 93 uses the sentence “I swear by my honor that I will continue on the path of the martyrs” (see Appendix Figure 6).

In a grade 6 Arabic textbook (Part I, p. 34), a reading comprehension exercise asks the students to explain why the poet addresses the issue of the martyrdom of children (see Appendix Figure 7).

A grammar exercise on p. 101 refers to a Koranic verse (3:109): “Do not consider those who died for the sake of Allah as dead, rather as alive, at their Lord sustained” (see Appendix Figure 8).

An exercise in a reader for grade 8 (Part I, p. 18) requires students to “explain the multiple cases of martyrdom [mentioned in] the Koran and hadith” (see Appendix Figure 9).

An Islamic Studies textbook for grade 9 (Part I, p. 5) quotes Koran 47:4-6: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers, smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah’s Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost.”

The lesson discusses the rewards of the martyrs who sacrifice their souls for the sake of Allah: Their sacrifices and their actions are never in vain; rather, Allah accepts their sacrifice, and forgives all their sins and houses them in the highest level of Paradise with the Prophets and Messengers (see Appendix Figure 10).

An Islamic Studies textbook for grade 10 (Part I, p. 8-9) presents justification for war against the polytheists. It too quotes Koran 47:4-6, as well as Koran 9:14: “Fight them; Allah will torture them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people; And remove the fury in the believers’ hearts…” (see Appendix Figure 11)

Jihad

A grade 6 Islamic Studies textbook (p. 33) discusses Ramadan as “the month of jihad, power and action,” and lists famous Islamic battles that took place during this month (see Appendix Figure 12).

An Islamic Studies textbook for grade 8 (Part II, p. 28) discusses the goals of jihad. It states that the mujahid must be pure in his intentions: he must not fight for the sake of gaining booty or enhancing his prestige, but in order to bring about the victory of Islam and make Allah’s Word supreme. The section quotes Koran 8:60: “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows. And whatever you spend in the cause of Allah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged” (see Appendix Figure 13).

A grade 8 language textbook (Part II, p. 55) quotes a hadith by Abu Huraira, who quoted the Prophet as saying: “He who dies without having fought in the Cause of Allah or without having thought of doing so dies with a characteristic of hypocrisy within him” (see Appendix Figure 14).

An Islamic Studies textbook for grade 7 (Part I, p. 64) discusses the Prophet’s wife ‘Aisha as an exemplary figure. It states that she participated in jihad for the sake of Allah and in the battle of Uhud, took care of the wounded and brought water to the fighters, and urged the believers to wage jihad (see Appendix Figure 15).

On Honoring Agreements:

A grade 9 Islamic Studies textbook (Part I, p. 52-54) includes a section on Treaty of Hudaybiyya between Muhammad and the Quraysh Tribe. Page 54 lists the lessons to be derived from this treaty, one which is the need to honor agreements signed by the Muslims with others if [these agreements] conform to the directives of Islam” (see Appendix Figure 16).

Muslim Migrant Honor Killing in Cleveland, Ohio

No comment from pro-terror, pro-sharia hatemonger, Linda Sarsour. No feminist marches. No tweets from Susan Sarandon and the rest of the vicious bleating sheep of the left.

Fahad Saeed and Rosa Al-Dhannoon came to the U.S. about three years ago as refugees from Iraq,

Fahad Saeed was arrested for murdering his ex-wife. Another Muslim was also arrested in the case. Court records show Amar Sami, 22, pleaded guilty to obstructing justice for lying to investigators who were looking into her disappearance. Islamic honor code of violence. Sources tell FOX 8 News, surveillance video shows Sami and Saeed purchasing shovels after Rosa Al Dhannoon’s disappearance.

Fahad Mohammed Saeed, 27, of Cleveland, also was charged in the indictment with kidnapping, felonious assault, aggravated burglary, stalking and abuse of a corpse in connection with the death of 25-year-old Roaa Al-Dhannoon. She was last seen Oct. 16 at her Lakewood, Ohio, apartment and was reported missing by friends three days later.
Abuse of a corpse? Was she beheaded?

Saeed was already in Cuyahoga County Jail after a Lakewood Municipal Court judge sentenced him to 180 days in jail in January for violating a protection order given to Al-Dhannoon. The couple divorced in September, and Al-Dhannoon was granted sole custody of their young son, Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Blaise Thomas said.
Police found her body in Big Creek Reserve in Brooklyn where they unearthed a container of human remains. They do not describe the condition of the body.

A recent survey shows Muslim men by and large approve of honor killing wives.

Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. 84 percent of honor killings in the United States were done by Muslims. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that ‘retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.’ However, ‘not subject to retaliation’ is ‘a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.’ (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law.” In other words, Islamic law sets no penalty for a parent who kills his child. Also, the legal codes of Jordan, Syria, and other Muslim countries have substantially reduced penalties for honor murders as compared to other murders, and Islamic clerics have resisted efforts to stiffen penalties for honor killings.

LAKEWOOD WOMAN’S EX-HUSBAND INDICTED IN CONNECTION TO HER DEATH

By Kaylee Remington, Cleveland.com, May 18, 2017:

LAKEWOOD, Ohio – Roaa Al-Dhannoon’s ex-husband, Fahad Mohammed Saeed, has been indicted in connection to her death.

Saeed, 26, is charged with aggravated murder, murder, kidnapping, felonious assault, aggravated burglary, burglary, violating a protection order, gross abuse of a corpse, theft, telecommunication fraud and tampering with evidence and possessing criminal tools, authorities said during a press conference Thursday morning at the Lakewood Police Department.

He is scheduled for his arraignment at 8:30 a.m. June 2, court records show.

Saeed could face up to life in prison without the possibility of parole if convicted, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley said.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Officers and Lakewood police announced Wednesday that remains found in a container Monday near a Brooklyn ravine belong to Al-Dhannoon.

Investigators would not discuss the details about how she died or how her body got there at Thursday’s press conference. Investigators identified her using her fingerprints.

Al-Dhannoon, 25, of Lakewood, was last seen Oct. 16, 2016 at her Edgewater Drive apartment in Lakewood. A family member reported her missing Oct. 19.

Al-Dhannoon was found near the ravine behind an apartment building on Memphis Avenue near Tiedeman Road. The cause of her death is still being determined.

Family and friends were concerned for her well-being because she had never been away from her son. He is 4 years old now, authorities said at the press conference.

Investigators with Lakewood police, the FBI and Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley’s office believe Al-Dhannoon was kidnapped and possibly killed, assistant Cuyahoga County prosecutor Blaise Thomas said earlier this month.

Saeed, was sentenced for violating a restraining order before she disappeared. He is accused of contacting her and their son.

He pleaded guilty in Lakewood Municipal, according to court records. He is currently serving a six-month sentence.

Another man, Ammar Sami, 21, pleaded no contest to obstruction of justice in her disappearance and was found guilty. He is scheduled to be sentenced at 11 a.m. May 25, court records show.

Authorities say he provided false information to the Lakewood Police Department and the Cleveland Division of the FBI.

Lakewood police, the Cleveland FBI and the Medical Examiner’s Officer concentrated on the ravine located along a stretch of Big Creel south of Memphis Avenue and east of Tiedeman Road.

Authorities came across the container with the biological remains. The FBI’s Evidence Response Team sifted through dirt near the Big Creek behind Parkview Estate Apartments.

Unmarried couple buried up to their necks then stoned to death for ‘violating Islamic law’

This is not civilization, but savagery at its worst — because it is religious and “righteous.”

This is what the apologists would bring to your neighborhood.

This is what those who enthuse about sharia want to see happen to you if you don’t obey its brutal code.

Ignore this at your peril — the successful spread of sharia will condemn our children and following generations to unimaginable misery.

UNMARRIED COUPLE ARE BURIED UP TO THEIR NECKS AND STONED TO DEATH FOR ‘VIOLATING ISLAMIC LAW’ IN MALI AS JIHADIST GROUPS TAKE HOLD OF THE COUNTRY

  • It was the first known stoning execution to take place in the country since 2012
  • Extremists dug two holes for the unmarried man and woman who lived together
  • Members of the public invited to take part in execution in Taghlit, Kidal region
  • Four people threw stones at the paur until they had died, local officials claimed

By Jay Akbar For Mailonline,17 May 2017:

An unmarried couple were stoned to death by Islamic extremists in Mali for the first known time since 2012, local officials claimed.

‘The Islamists dug two holes where they put the man and the woman who lived maritally without being married,’ the official said. ‘They were stoned to death.’

The same source said members of the public were invited to take part in the public execution in Taghlit, close to Aguelhok in the Kidal region, adding: ‘Four people threw stones at them until they died.’

Another local official confirmed the information, saying the Islamists had accused the unmarried couple of violating ‘Islamic law’ – which requires punishment by stoning.

Northern Mali fell to jihadist groups linked to Al-Qaeda in March 2012 and although they were driven out of key towns by a French-led military intervention the following year, Islamists have regrouped and now have spread further south.

During their brief control of key towns in the vast north, jihadist groups imposed a version of Sharia law which forced women to wear veils and set whipping and stoning as punishment for transgressions.

It is the first public stoning known to have taken place in Mali since July 2012, when the Ansar Dine group stoned a couple in public in Aguelhok who they accused of having children outside marriage.

The young pair were publicly executed in the remote town of Aguelhok, near the vast West African nation’s northern border with Algeria, on Sunday, a spokesman for the Ansar Dine [‘Defenders of the faith’] group said at the time.

A local official said members of the public were invited to take part in the public execution in Taghlit, close to Aguelhok in the Kidal region, adding: 'Four people threw stones at them until they died

‘These two people were married and had extra-conjugal relations,’ the spokesman added. ‘Our men on the ground in Aguelhok applied sharia [Islamic law].’

‘They both died right away and even asked for this application.

‘We don’t have to answer to anyone over the application of sharia,’ he said.

Lawyer: Trump Executive Order on Immigration violates First Amendment because honor killings are Islamic

Katyal is right. Honor killings are Islamic. But he is, to my knowledge, the first Western Leftist ever to admit that fact.

Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide. A manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that “retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right.” However, “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.” (‘Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2). In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law. In this case the victim was the murderer’s sister, a victim to the culture of violence and intimidation that such laws help create.

The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders. Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now. Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but “the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour ‘provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.’” And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that “Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values.”

Until the encouragement Islamic law gives to honor killing is acknowledged and confronted, more women will suffer.

But Katyal is here arguing that honor killings cannot be opposed or restricted because to do so would restrict Muslims’ religious freedom. He apparently understands the First Amendment’s protection of religious freedom as a license to break other laws, including prohibitions on murder. This is a vital point that must be clarified: either the principle of religious freedom overrules everything, and even allows for murder, or it stops where other laws begin. This question is going to have to be answered sooner or later.

“Hawaii Lawyer: Trump Exec Order Violates 1st Amendment Because Honor Killings Are Islamic,” by Raheem Kassam, Breitbart, May 15, 2017:

The lawyer representing the State of Hawaii in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit today has stated the collection of data with regards honor killings should be removed from President Trump’s Executive Order in order to “pass constitutional muster”.

In his arguments, Neal Katyal stated today that the collection of such data as outlined by the Executive Order 13780 contravenes the Establishment Clause, in the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…”.

In doing so, Katyal appears to be making the case that honor killings — murder committed in the name of restoring a family’s dignity following discouraged behaviour within fundamentalist homes — is in itself Islamic.

It is an argument often made by anti-Islam campaigners, but to hear such arguments made by the political left might surprise some, especially when honor killings are also found — though to a lesser extent — in other religious groups like the Sikh community.

“What does [the President] have to do to issue an executive order that, in your view, might pass constitutional muster?” asked Judge Paez of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, this afternoon.

Katyal responded at length, stating: “I think there’s two paths that the President could take in order to pass constitutional muster.

“One is the way that our founders thought, Article 1 Section 8 which, as Congress in the driver’s seat with respect to immigration, passes a statute. as Justice Alito said, when Congress passes a statute it’s much less likely to discriminate. It is 535 people versus one, which is why his Mandel point is so problematic. That’s number one.

“Second thing the president could do, or the kinds of things or some of the kinds, removing some of things that the district court found led an objective observer to say that this this discriminates.

“One example would be, what Judge Hawkins said, disavowing formally all the stuff said before. But that’s not it. He could do a lot of things. For example, I’m going to throw out some examples. I‘m not trying to micro manage the President. He could say, like President Bush did, right after September 11th, the face of terror is not the true faith of Islam. that’s not what Islam is about. Islam is peace. Instead, we get, quote, Islam hates us. I think Islam hates us.

“I think he could point to changed circumstances from December 2015, when Congress debated the exact same evidence that the President relies on in his executive order and say, you know, we actually need more than just denying people entry without a visa, which is what Congress required. You need to do more than that.

“It could eliminate the text, which refers to honor killings. There’s a bunch of different things that could be done. And our fundamental point to you is that presidents don’t run into Establishment Clause problems and the reason for that is this is a very limited, you know, in a really unusual case in which you have these public statements by the President. if you affirm the district court there’s not a thing that any president has done in our lifetime that would be unconstitutional”.

For Katyal to advance such an argument may also be detrimental to the public understanding of honor killings in the United States….
