Muslim teen accused of murder threatens to rape prison guards in the name of Allah

A teenager accused of fatally stabbing a service station worker in an ‘ISIS inspired’ attack has been segregated for allegedly threatening to rape and kill a prison guard ‘in the name of Allah’.

As is well documented on this site, jihadis routinely commit brazen crimes and issue threats against innocent people in the name of Allah. Yet as commonplace as this is becoming, Western officials appear more concerned with appearing “tolerant” than with dealing with this threat realistically. Even as he threatens to rape and murder in the name of Allah, his religious observances will be allowed him, as a “reasonable accommodation.”

“Teenager accused of fatally stabbing service station worker segregated for ‘threatening to rape and murder prison guards in the name of Allah’”, by Stephen Johnson, Daily Mail, May 7, 2017:

A teenager accused of fatally stabbing a service station worker in an ‘ISIS inspired’ attack has been segregated for allegedly threatening to rape and kill a prison guard ‘in the name of Allah’.

The 16-year-old boy and another juvenile, aged 15, were last month charged with murdering Caltex worker Zeeshan Akbar, 29, at Queanbeyan, in southern New South Wales.

They were arrested in nearby Canberra over the death of the Pakistani national, after they had allegedly written ‘IS’ in blood on the front of the service station.

The older boy is being held at the Frank Baxter Juvenile Justice Centre at Kariong, on the NSW Central Coast north of Sydney, where he allegedly repeatedly threatened to rape and murder prison officers, the Sunday Telegraph reports.

Prison sources told the newspaper the accused murderer had also threatened to stab and rape the officers’ families.

The report said he was being investigated for previously posting extremist material online as part of his possible links with Islamist groups.

His alleged behaviour has led to calls from the Public Service Association, which represents prison guards, for purpose-built juvenile detention wing of the Supermax prison at Goulburn.

The other young boy is being held in a separate juvenile justice centre and is reportedly co-operating with staff.

Both teenagers reportedly should [sic] ‘Allahu Akbar’ following his arrest….

Muslim who slaughtered six people says ‘Muslim faith is the correct faith’

Back in January when I initially reported on Gargasoulas’ self-identification as a Muslim, numerous people indignantly tweeted and emailed me, saying that Dimitrious Gargasoulas was not Muslim, he was Greek, and this was not a jihad attack, as he was simply insane. That Islam is a religion and Greek is a nationality seemed to escape a surprising number of people, including Australian authorities. But indeed, Gargasoulas did seem to be quite unbalanced, and his statements at his court appearance only underscore that fact. What mainstream analysts fail to grasp is that being unbalanced and being a jihadi are not mutually exclusive. In fact, Islam attracts the psychically marginal, as it provides them with a justification of and blessing for their impulses to rage, hatred and violence.

“Alleged Bourke Street killer declares: ‘I am the saviour,’” by Adam Cooper, The Age, April 19, 2017 (thanks to Jill):

Alleged Bourke Street killer Dimitrious Gargasoulas has declared himself “the saviour” and not guilty in his first appearance before a court since he was charged over the deadly drive through Melbourne’s CBD.

Mr Gargasoulas, 26, appeared to be smirking as he appeared before Melbourne Magistrates Court via video link from prison on Wednesday,wearing a black jumper, with stubble on his chin and with his hair all black.

“Your Honour, do you know … I want to tell you something,” he called out, before he was cut off by his lawyer, who told him there were media in the court.

Mr Gargasoulas then said: “I just want to say that Aboriginal law is identical to Muslim law.”

He then mentioned the Bible and Koran, and continued: “Did you know that Muslim faith is the correct faith according to the whole world? And I am not guilty.”

He ended his rant with the statement: “I am the saviour.” Magistrate Kate Hawkins then cut off the video link.

Mr Gargasoulas had not appeared before a court since he allegedly killed six people on January 20 by driving a maroon Holden Commodore deliberately at pedestrians about 1.30pm….

Muslim leader says people who leave Islam should be put to death

The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. It’s based on the Qur’an: “They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper.” (Qur’an 4:89)

A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him” (Bukhari 9.84.57). The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence.

This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi’ite. Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, has stated: “The Muslim jurists are unanimous that apostates must be punished, yet they differ as to determining the kind of punishment to be inflicted upon them. The majority of them, including the four main schools of jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi’i, and Hanbali) as well as the other four schools of jurisprudence (the four Shiite schools of Az-Zaidiyyah, Al-Ithna-‘ashriyyah, Al-Ja’fariyyah, and Az-Zaheriyyah) agree that apostates must be executed.”

Qaradawi also once famously said: “If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today.”

But usually Muslim spokesmen in the West are not as forthright about this as Uthman Badar is here. The real question is, how is this idea compatible with the freedoms that Australians take for granted?

“EXCLUSIVE: Days after the carnage in London, this is the moment we catch a firebrand Islamist leader on camera saying all former Muslims should be put to DEATH… in Sydney on Saturday night,” by Stephen Johnson, Daily Mail Australia, March 27, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A leader of a hardline Islamist group which campaigns for sharia law says Muslims who leave the religion should be put to death.

Hizb ut-Tahrir spokesman Uthman Badar was frank when asked about the group’s policy at a forum in Bankstown, in Sydney’s south-west, on Saturday night.

‘The ruling for apostates as such in Islam is clear, that apostates attract capital punishment and we don’t shy away from that,’ Badar said in the presence of children. An apostate is someone who decides to leave Islam.

Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia removed references to that apostasy policy from its website as Alison Bevege, a freelance journalist, sued the group for making her to sit in a women’s-only section at a separate talk in October 2014.

On Saturday night, Ms Bevege held up a printed copy of Hizb ut-Tahrir’s draft constitution of the khilafah state published on the UK site, which was on the group’s Australian website until 2015.

This outlines their vision for a global Islamic caliphate, which has Muslims and non-Muslims living under sharia law.

She asked about their policy of killing people born as Muslims who leave the faith.

Hizb-ut Tahrir is a hardline Islamist group which seeks the establishment of a global caliphate, or empire.

The extremist group is said to reject democracy, secularism and all Western models of state.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott called for the group to be shut down in 2014, but the ban was never put in place.

A spokeswoman for Justice Michael Keenan told Daily Mail Australia the ‘execution’ matter had been referred to the Federal Police.

The organisation is banned in a number of Muslim-majority countries.

Article 7c of the document said: ‘Those who are guilty of apostasy (murtadd) from Islam are to be executed according to the rule of apostasy, provided they have by themselves renounced Islam.’

Badar initially responded by saying the policy wasn’t on its website before explaining how the group’s apostasy policy was compatible with Islam.

‘The whole thing covers different aspects of Islamic sharia law,’ he said.

‘The role of apostasy in Islam is very clear. Again, this is one of the things the West doesn’t like and seeks to change the role of apostasy.’ …

Muslim teen in deradicalization program plotted jihad massacre

Deradicalization programs, upon which the West has placed so much hope, have long been an obvious failure. Such programs are based on the premise that the true teachings of Islam are peaceful, and so all that needs to be done is show the jihadis how they’re misunderstanding the Qur’an and overlooking its teachings of peace, and all will be well. But since the Qur’an and Sunnah are full of commands to make war against and subjugate unbelievers, the idea that jihadis can be “deradicalized” by reference to them is just a myth told to Infidel authorities to lull them into complacency.

Well, let’s see. De-radicalization programs have been implemented elsewhere, notably in Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. Let’s look at how they fared. From the Jihad Watch archives:

A Sydney teenager who was in a deradicalisation program has pleaded guilty in Parramatta Childrens Court to planning a terrorist attack on Anzac Day in 2016, and remanded in custody until April 21….

The teenager’s been accused of using an encrypted message app to try and obtain a gun for his intended April 25 attack and, when that failed, a bomb manual.

Australia: Muslims give $35 million to fund terrorism

“Australia is on high alert for attacks by radicalized Muslims or by home-grown militants returning from fighting in the Middle East, having raised its threat level to ‘high’ and unleashed a series of high-profile raids in major cities.” “Home-grown militants returning from fighting in the Middle East” should not be allowed to reenter Australia. By going to the Middle East to wage jihad, they have declared that they are at war with Australia, and should be treated as enemy combatants.

“Australian intelligence says spike in ‘terrorism’ funding investigations,” by Matt Siegel, Reuters, November 4, 2015:

Australia’s anti-money laundering agency says reports of suspected “terrorism-financing” tripled in the past year, with over A$50 million ($35.92 million) which could be used to support Islamist militants being investigated.

The financial intelligence agency, AUSTRAC, said in its annual report released this week that it had recorded a trebling of “suspicious matter reports” that could be linked to funding of militant groups. It recorded up to 367 reported cases in 2014-15 from 118 a year earlier.

“The volume of terrorism financing in Australia is linked to the number of Australians travelling to join terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq,” the report said.

Roughly A$53 million dollars, A$11 million in cash, was reported as suspicious to the agency. The funds may have been intended to cover a variety of activities, including paying family members who died in operations, AUSTRAC said.

Australia is on high alert for attacks by radicalised Muslims or by home-grown militants returning from fighting in the Middle East, having raised its threat level to “high” and unleashed a series of high-profile raids in major cities.

Security analysts have put the number of foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria, travelling from scores of countries around the world, in the thousands. AUSTRAC said in the report that it was monitoring around 100 people.

About 120 Australians are believed to be fighting with Islamic State and other militant groups in Iraq and Syria, with several believed by intelligence agencies to hold leadership positions in Islamic State….

“We must accept that terrorist acts are religiously motivated”

An unusual outbreak of common sense in the mainstream media.

“We must accept that terrorist acts are religiously motivated,” by Rodger Shanahan, The Australian, October 10, 2015:

The desire to airbrush religion from terrorist and foreign fighter recruitment activity has seen politicians and public figures tying themselves into knots.

Trying to avoid using the R-word, NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione noted during his press conference about the Parramatta police shooting last weekend that “we believe (teenage gunman Farhad Jabar’s) actions were politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism”. There was no mention of the nature of that political motivation or why religion wasn’t considered to be a motive.

The federal Criminal Code Act 1995 defines a terrorist act as ­advancing a political, ideological or religious goal.

The following day, Fairfax Media columnist Tim Dick spoke of the shock of the act and that it was not so much the murderer’s “obscure political purpose”, but his age that was of concern.

Without doubt his age was concerning, but again there was no mention of what that political purpose was, or any thought that it could equally have involved an ­obscure religious purpose.

Assistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs Concetta Fierravanti-Wells recently claimed that some young people were attracted to becoming foreign fighters because they had been lured with promises of drugs, women and weapons, while others went with criminal intent so they could rape, plunder and pillage.

Nowhere in any of this is there a sense that the motivation may be religious, or that most videos glorifying the fight in Syria and Iraq are about helping Islam to victory over the unbelievers, idolators and apostates the jihadists claim are arrayed against them, and to impose ­Islamic law over the lands it conquers.

The unpalatable reality is that the actions of domestic terrorists and foreign fighters and their facilitators are not politically motivated, they are religiously motivated.

People aren’t attracted to fighting in Syria or Iraq because they’re Arab nationalists or Syrian-Australian dual citizens or would-be humanitarian workers or because it’s cool. They’re attracted because it gives them a sense of empowerment through their religious identity. Recruiters portray such jihad as part of a distorted sense of religious obligation and social media is awash with religious ­references to the fighting….

If it were really all that distorted, would it really be as appealing to young Muslims as it is?
