Four Things the Walking Dead Taught us About Islam

Islam in Arabic.

Following the introduction of a Muslim character at the end of Season 7, the Season 8 premier of “The Walking Dead” introduced the show’s second Muslim character.

But when the writers started explaining the Quran to us, it wasn’t long before they made some standard blunders.

Let’s take a closer look.

VIDEO: How Islam can prevent sexual abuse scandals [thanks, Qasim Rashid!] by David Wood

The superlatively brilliant David Wood takes apart the jaw-droppingly dishonest article by Islamic apologist Qasim Rashid, “How the teachings of Islam could help us prevent more sexual abuse scandals.”

Wood says: “You have to hand it to Qasim. Whatever he lacks in honesty and integrity, he more than makes up for in arrogance and stupidity.”

I can’t stop laughing.

Russian mercenaries executed by ISIS ‘for refusing to reject Christianity and become Muslim’

Yet there are still authorities who will tell us that ISIS and all other jihad groups have nothing to do with Islam. The willful ignorance and denial is near-universal.

“Russian mercenaries captured by ISIS ‘are executed after refusing to reject Christianity and become Muslim,’” by Will Stewart, MailOnline, October 6, 2017:

Two Russian mercenaries reportedly captured by ISIS jihadists are feared to have been executed because they refused to read out a statement saying they rejected their Christian faith and had become Muslim.

Roman Zabolotny, 39, and Grigory Tsurkanu, 38, held in Syria, also refused to say on camera that they had joined the terrorist group.

The men are believed to have been fighting for a private Russian mercenary force comprising ex-servicemen which saw action in Crimea and eastern Ukraine before Syria.

They were held by jihadists around the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, the last ISIS stronghold in the country.

They appeared in a video released earlier this week by ISIS news agency Amak which claimed inaccurately that the men were serving Russian soldiers.

Senior Russian MP Viktor Vodolatsky said: ‘It is very sad but 99 per cent Roman Zabolotny is not alive, nor is the second prisoner.

‘Before filming that video they were given a statement which they had to read.

‘In this text they would reject their Orthodox religion, reject their motherland, become Muslim and join ISIS.

‘They stayed loyal to the Orthodox faith and their Motherland until the very end, and this is what they were killed by those gangsters for.’

There has been no official confirmation from the Russian authorities about their fate, but Vladimir Putin’s government is coy speaking about such mercenary forces in Syria and other hot spots, even though experts say they work closely with the armed forces.

A local MP in Rostov-on-Don, Zabolotny’s home city, also confirmed the pair had been ‘executed’, saying it happened the day after the video was made.

‘Unfortunately, this is true,’ said Anatoly Kotlyarov. ‘Information was received that they were executed in a town square.’…

Muslim explains that he tried to murder woman because ‘I started listening to the Koran’

Almestadi “left Mary Hare with serious injuries, including a five-inch-long cut to her throat.”

“When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4)

“‘I was not aware of what I was doing at the time,’ says UBC attempted murder suspect,” by Bal Brach, CBC News, October 11, 2017:

The man charged with attempted murder in an attack at UBC last year admitted that he tried to kill the victim, but added that he didn’t know what he was doing during the incident.

“I tried to kill her,” Thamer Hameed Almestadi admitted in a videotaped interview with RCMP Sgt. Kevin Jeffrey.

“I was not aware of what I was doing at the time,” he added.

Almestadi has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon in the 2016 attack that left Mary Hare with serious injuries, including a five-inch-long cut to her throat.

In the hours-long interview that was played in court during day two of Almestadi’s trial, the UBC student was at times crying and remorseful, asking the officer if the victim was going to survive.

“Tell her I’m sorry …Tell her I made a mistake … I didn’t even know why her,” he said.

The international student from Saudi Arabia said that he hadn’t slept the night before the attack at UBC’s Salish House and was feeling overwhelmed by school work in the weeks leading up to the incident.

“I am so behind in school … I can’t get focused in school.”

Mary Hare was attacked with a knife in her dorm room at UBC last year. The trial for the accused in the attempted murder case began at B.C. Supreme Court Tuesday. (CBC News )

When asked by Sgt. Jeffrey why he might have attacked Mary Hare with a knife Almestadi said, “I started listening to the Koran and understanding the meanings differently.”

“If you read something and your mind is thinking something else, you understand differently.”

Almestadi — who was 18 at the time of the incident — said he even began seeing things that weren’t real.

“At that point I thought Mary was the devil,” he said….

Real estate agent converts to Islam, kidnaps her son, joins ISIS, poses son with Kalashnikov

So many converts to Islam get involved in jihad terror. Why? Because they read the Qur’an, and take its exhortations to wage war against unbelievers to heart. Yet authorities the world over have evinced no interest whatsoever in studying this phenomenon, and trying to prevent converts to Islam from becoming jihadis.

“From estate agent to IS recruiter: How woman became ‘different person’ & kidnapped her son,” RT, October 11, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Before joining Islamic State, Daria Itsankova was a successful real estate agent and wrote fantasy stories for children. Things changed overnight when she became interested in Islam, kidnapped her four-year-old son and later moved to Syria.

Itsankova, 38, is on the wanted list for aiding terrorists and recruiting Russians into the ranks of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Syria.

Some seven years ago, Itsankova kidnapped her only son, David, from his father Mikhail and secretly took the boy first to Russia’s southern republic of Dagestan, and then to Syria. Now aged 10, David is thought to be based somewhere in Iraq. He is apparently with his step-sister, whose father, a Canadian boxer and friend of convicted Boston Marathon-bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was killed in Dagestan several years ago.

Itsankova’s husband recalled to RT Russian that after he found out that his wife “became part of a rebel group in the North Caucasus and later fled alongside IS militants” he simply could not believe it. “When we met, she was a completely different person,” he said.

In 2008, Itsankova, once a successful real estate agent, was dogged by serious problems at work: several clients had accused her of fraud. In order to turn a new page in her life, she moved to Aleksandrov, a town some 120km from Moscow, where Mikhail’s parents lived.

At that point, Mikhail left for Sochi, where he worked for almost a year. When he came back home in 2010, Itsankova told him that she had been captivated by Islam. “I didn’t pay any attention until she began to wear hijab and perform the daily Muslim prayers,” he told RT.

“One day, I came home to find neither her nor our child. She’d left a note on the table saying she had moved to another apartment,” Mikhail recalled. The note – which apparently read “your hound is at home, come home” – was left on April 1, April Fool’s day, so the father thought it might be a joke, RIA Novosti reports.

Yet, the husband learned from the message that Itsankova had begun to live with a Muslim man, Avraam. He allegedly treated David badly and forced him to learn Arabic, the child told his father. According to the boy, the man – who asked to be called ‘Brother Avraam’ – had beaten him with a belt and a stick, forbade him from singing, reading, drawing and playing games. All the toys from the house were thrown into the trash.

David told his father that his mother’s lover had shaved his head with a women’s shaver and afterwards told the boy: “Hey, bald head – your sweet life is over.”

RT has learned that the multi-talented Itsankova once worked as a copy editor in a publishing house. Mikhail believes that Daria came under the influence of Islamists on the internet, since she spent a lot of time browsing social networks for her job.

In 2011, Mikhail’s parents had intervened, and managed to take the boy away from his mother, to live with them in their house. Itsankova occasionally came to visit. During one of those visits, she allegedly kidnapped David and left for Makhachkala, the capital of the Russian Republic of Dagestan.

Howver, when Mikhail turned to the police, they refused to take any action, because technically, the boy was with his own mother. Little is known about Itsankova’s life in Dagestan, apart from minimal reports from Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), as well as materials from the scandalous criminal case against four women in Russia who sponsored ISIS fighters at the expense of the proceeds from the sale of children’s clothes and hand-made soap.

According to a source in the security forces, having moved to Makhachkala in 2011, Itsankova quickly established ties with the wives of IS militants, radical Islamists and members of local rebel groups.

She then apparently became involved in recruiting individuals for terrorism purposes and the collection of funds for IS militants. In Dagestan, Itsankova married former Canadian boxer William Plotnikov and gave birth to a daughter.

In 2012, FSB officers killed seven militants suspected of murdering policemen and attacking roadblocks in Dagestan, with Plotnikov among those shot dead.

After the death, Itsankova continued to raise funds for the militants, the security source claimed. In 2013, the FSB managed to track the woman down, but failed to detain her. Nothing more is known of Itsankova’s fate, except that until recently she was based in Iraq….

U.S. to ISIS: ‘Unconditionally Surrender’ or ‘Die’

Fresh on the heels of the Las Vegas shooting that ISIS insists was their doing, the US vows to destroy it. Even if it loses all its territory, of course, there will still be Muslims around the world who believe in ISIS and will still commit mass murder for Islam.

“US To ISIS: Unconditionally Surrender Or Die,” by Jonah Bennett, Daily Caller News Foundation, October 11, 2017 (thanks to Todd):

The U.S. is refusing to accept any negotiated withdrawal of Islamic State fighters from the terror group’s capital in Syria and will only accept complete, unconditional surrender.

In a statement Wednesday, the U.S.-led coalition in the fight against ISIS said it would not accept a negotiated withdrawal of ISIS fighters out of Raqqa, even as the coalition is trying to evacuate 4,000 civilians out of the city, The Associated Press reports.

Instead, Army spokesman Col. Ryan Dillon said the coalition discussions about what will happen to the remaining 300-400 ISIS fighters in about 1.5 square miles of the city have all centered around “unconditional surrender.”

For the coalition, negotiated withdrawal “is absolutely something that we as a coalition would not be a part of or agree with.”

The coalition believes the militants use the city’s hospital as their main headquarters and the stadium to store weapons.

So far, just 15 fighters over the last several weeks have surrendered.

In preparation to evacuate civilians from the cit,y coalition airstrikes have died down to a slow pace.

Over the past week, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces wrested control of 40 blocks from ISIS. About 85 percent of the city is now estimated clear….

21-year-old Muslim Habibullah Ahmad savagely beats 75-year-old woman in ‘most severe beating I’ve seen’

“This is not just another assault…This is maybe representing a new, dark side of Windsor that we can’t let propagate.”

Indeed. But it is propagating, and will continue to propagate. Justin Trudeau, stand up and take a bow.

The Qur’an says “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (47:4). Instead, Habibullah Ahmad left Sara Anne Widholm with “multiple brain hemorrhages, a blood clot on the surface of her brain that was immediately threatening her life, extensive skull fractures, fractured vertebrae in her neck, a lacerated scalp, and a badly bruised face.” He must be a moderate.

“Unprovoked attack on 75-year-old woman ‘the most severe beating I’ve seen,’ says Windsor surgeon,” by Dalson Chen, Windsor Star, October 11, 2017 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

The shocking weekend assault of a 75-year-old woman left her with head injuries so terrible that the surgeon who treated her says they’re among the worst he’s seen in his medical career in Windsor.

“In my 12 years in Windsor, this is the most severe beating I’ve seen,” said Dr. Balraj Jhawar, a neurosurgeon at the Ouellette Campus of Windsor Regional Hospital.

Sara Anne Widholm, a grandmother and Riverside resident, remained in critical condition Tuesday afternoon.

She has not awakened since she was found unconscious and battered on the Ganatchio Trail east of Riverdale Avenue and Little River on Sunday morning.

Speaking to the Star with the permission of Widholm’s family, Jhawar detailed a long list of damage.

She was brought to the hospital suffering from multiple brain hemorrhages, a blood clot on the surface of her brain that was immediately threatening her life, extensive skull fractures, fractured vertebrae in her neck, a lacerated scalp, and a badly bruised face.

“The worst skull fractures I’ve seen in my 12 years here in Windsor,” Jhawar repeated.

“I’ve submitted pictures to Windsor police. This is among the most brutal things I’ve seen in my career. … Her eyes were so bruised, they were swollen shut.”…

Windsor police are acknowledging the extreme nature of this unprovoked assault in a popular park area.

“This was, without a doubt, a vicious, vicious attack,” Windsor police spokesman Sgt. Steve Betteridge said Tuesday.

“It’s very alarming to see an attack of this nature, at that time of day, at that location.”

Windsor resident Habibullah Ahmad, 21, who goes by the first name Daniel, has been charged with one count of aggravated assault. He remained in custody at press time.

Aggravated assault is an indictable offence under the Criminal Code of Canada. It carries a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment.

It isn’t yet clear what led to the one-sided altercation. Police said Tuesday that the incident “appears to be random in nature.”…

“For all of us who live here in Windsor, we can’t tolerate this. This is not just another assault,” Jhawar said.

“This is concerning to me. This is maybe representing a new, dark side of Windsor that we can’t let propagate.”…

Trump wants tighter security on northern border after Edmonton jihadi evaded deportation by fleeing to Canada

“Mr. Sharif was arrested in San Diego in July of 2011 and ordered deported to Somalia by a judge later that year. He was then released, failed to report for his deportation and could not be located by U.S. authorities after January, 2012. U.S. authorities have said that Mr. Sharif had no known criminal history at the time. Mr. Sharif subsequently arrived in Canada and received refugee status. He now stands accused of stabbing a police officer outside a football game at Commonwealth Stadium on Sept. 30 and running down pedestrians in a truck during a later chase.”

And anyone who may have supported his deportation at the time would have been denounced as a racist, bigoted “Islamophobe.”

Abdulahi Hasan Sharif

“Trump administration cites Edmonton attack in call for immigration changes,” by Adrian Morrow, Globe and Mail, October 8, 2017:

The Trump administration wants to change the immigration rules that allowed a man accused of perpetrating a terrorist attack in Edmonton last month to evade a U.S. deportation order years ago and come to Canada.

The White House also wants to tighten security along the U.S. border with Canada as part of a plan to toughen immigration controls across the country.

One administration official cited the case of Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, 30, Sunday evening as President Donald Trump sent Congress a set of border-security and immigration changes he wants passed.

Mr. Sharif was arrested in San Diego in July of 2011 and ordered deported to Somalia by a judge later that year. He was then released, failed to report for his deportation and could not be located by U.S. authorities after January, 2012. U.S. authorities have said that Mr. Sharif had no known criminal history at the time.

Mr. Sharif subsequently arrived in Canada and received refugee status. He now stands accused of stabbing a police officer outside a football game at Commonwealth Stadium on Sept. 30 and running down pedestrians in a truck during a later chase.

The administration official said Sunday that Mr. Sharif was released in 2011 because authorities were having trouble deporting him, as Somalia at the time was not repatriating its citizens. The official said the administration wants to “address” this problem.

In his message to Congress, Mr. Trump called for new rules that would “end the practice of catch-and-release” and give Immigration and Customs Enforcement more power to keep prospective deportees in custody until they are removed from the country. Part of the problem, the President wrote, was a 2001 Supreme Court decision that prevents authorities from detaining people for more than 180 days if there is no imminent prospect for their deportation….

Saudi Arabia claims to have fired “thousands” of “extremist” imams

Canada: 21-year-old Muslim man savagely beats 75-year-old woman in “random” assault, “most severe beating I’ve seen”

Rapists and wife-beaters flocked to join ISIS

Of course. Islam justifies both.

A hadith depicts Muhammad saying:

“If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460).

Another hadith attributes this to Muhammad:

“By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel’s saddle” (Ibn Majah 1854).

The Qur’an teaches 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.

As as for wife-beating:

“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

Muhammad “struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” — Aisha (Sahih Muslim 2127)

“Rapists and wife-beaters flocked to join ISIS because the group’s systemised sexual violence appealed to them, study shows,” by Iain Burns, Mailonline, October 9, 2017 (thanks to Robert):

A new study has shown that many men with a history of sexual violence and domestic abuse joined ISIS because of the group’s use of slavery and rape.

The Henry Jackson Society report claims the sanctioning of systemic sexual abuse served as a way of ‘attracting, retaining, mobilising and rewarding fighters’.

It was also used as a means of delivering cruel punishment to ‘kafir’ – non-Muslims – and as a form of terrorism.

With slavery and rape given Islamic justification by the depraved group’s theologians, sexual exploitation was also used as a way of raising cash for the caliphate.

The study shows many ISIS fighters from the US and Europe had a background of abusing women, which implies a relationship between ‘committing terrorist attacks and having a history of physical and/or sexual violence’.

One infamous jihadist described as key in the savage persecution of non-Muslims in ISIS territory is the Briton Siddhartha Dhar.

The father-of-four, once a bouncy castle salesman in Walthamstow, is said to have even enslaved some Yazidi women and girls himself and regularly taken part in trafficking.

The Yazidis, deemed by ISIS to be ‘pagans’ that can be raped and enslaved without consequence, have provided much of the supply of women and girls for the group.

According to the report, the prospect of having unlimited access to women was intentionally advertised to attract men from conservative Islamic societies where casual sex is prohibited.

The group also sanctioned forced conversions and pregnancies after women were enslaved or abused as a means of adding to the ranks of the extremist cult.

Another Briton with a history of sexual violence – Ondogo Ahmed, from London, who was jailed for eight years after raping a 16-year-old girl – joined the group in 2013.

He fled to the caliphate in Syria when out of prison on licence.

Nikita Malik, the author of the report, was quoted in The Guardian as saying: ‘These cases indicate an existence of a type of terrorism that is sexually motivated, in which individuals with prior records of sexual violence are attracted by the sexual brutality carried out by members of Islamic State.’

Other men with a past of domestic or sexual abuse include London Bridge murderer Rachid Redouane and Westminster terrorist Khalid Masood….

64% increase in violent Islamists in Germany in one year, now over 1,800

And the number is only going to continue to grow, thanks to Angela Merkel, destroyer of Germany, and all the good multiculturalists who reelected her.

“Number of Violent Jihadists in Germany up 64 Per Cent to over 1,800,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, October 6, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The German Federal Agency for the Protection of the Constitution, the country’s domestic intelligence service, claims there are now more than 1,800 violent jihadists in the country and the number continues to grow.

President of the domestic spy agency Hans-Georg Maassen announced the figures at a press conference on Thursday at the Bundestag in Berlin. He also warned of a growing trend in German primary schools which are seeing a rise in the popularity of radical Islamic ideas amongst students, Kronen Zeitung reports.

The number of violent jihadis is a dramatic increase compared to August of last year when the intelligence agency said they suspected there were 1,100 jihadists in the country, reflecting a 64 per cent increase.

The number of radical Islamic believers, also known as Salafists, has also climbed to over 10,000 and is still the fastest growing sect of Islam in Germany.

One of the major developments over the past year has been a rise in radicalisation amongst children in primary schools across the country. Teachers in schools have come forward claiming that their students exhibited signs of Islamic radicalism filling up extremist hotlines put in place by the government.

The average age of radicalisation has gone down as well, from 20 to only 18-years-old.

Last year Wolfgang Trusheim, head of the Frankfurt state police, warned of radicalismamongst young children of Islamic extremists calling them “hate children”.

Islamic radicalisation expert Florian Endres, who works for the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), said the phenomena is very new. “Most children get their socialisation from a Salafistic environment – that is, the parents themselves are already radicalised,” he said….

The rise in Islamic extremism in schools has also been linked by some to the growing number of anti-Semitic incidents in cities like Berlin where “you Jew!” has become a common insult on school playgrounds.
