Islamic Persecution and Intolerance

Feb 20, 2013

As Dutch MP Geert Wilders finds himself being banned from speaking, in much of the country, the message which he is trying to get out is being proven in front of our very eyes. The lack of tolerance and diversity being shown him by so many in Australia is being borne out as we speak.

Thus it is all the more ironic: his message is about how we are losing our freedoms in the West because of our fear not to offend Islam, and he is now being prevented from sharing that message because of this very thing: Islamic intolerance and hatred of democracy.

He also, if given half a chance, would have shared the many horror stories about how Muslims in Europe and elsewhere are quickly undermining the free West as they bring their seventh century practices here. Since the forces of political correctness, the radical left, the Islamists, and the MSM have all decided to prevent this message from getting out, I will seek to do so, until they shut me up and close down this site.

So let’s briefly look at a bunch of recent examples of the very thing Wilders is trying to warn us about. Here are five examples from just the past week or so that fully demonstrate the truth of what Wilders is trying to tell us, but is being blocked in so many instances from doing.

The first comes from Sweden – yes Sweden, not Pakistan. The headline reads: “Muslim Teen Stabs His Abused Sister 107 Times in Honor-Killing, Gets 8 Years”. The story begins, “A 17-year-old Iraqi Kurd in Landskrona sentenced to eight years in prison for the murder of his sister Maria. According to the court was the motive for the act to restore family honor.

“The 19-year-old woman was killed by 107 wounds with two knives and scissors to different parts of the body. According to a legal medical report, it took several minutes to inflict her injuries. The district court wrote that damages therefore caused her great suffering and high death anxiety.

“The Court also established that the brother on more than one occasion before the murder intimidated his sister and called her demeaning epithets like whore and slut. His sister had returned to Landskrona after she broke up from a forced marriage in Iraq. She was found dead in his apartment in Landskrona on the evening of 23 April, the day after her birthday.”

Let’s stay in Sweden – this time a horrific story indeed. Sadly, because some people get more outraged by animal abuse than abuse of humans, this story must be told. And I dare anyone to go to the link and look at all the photos without getting sick in the stomach.

The headline is this: “Four Tunisian Muslim savages behead a cat and brag about it on Facebook and Twitter”. Here’s more: “Swedish police are investigating a case of animal abuse after a photo was published on the internet where four Muslim men appeared showing off the head and body of a cat they had just severed.

“The men have been boasting about their prowess in torturing the cat on Twitter and Facebook. After leaving this photo on the internet, new images have been revealed where you can see just how they cut away the skin with a large knife and stand proudly with the cat’s head.”

Go ahead, look at the pics. And this is the religion of peace.

Also in Europe, this time in Norway, the cost of daring to leave Islam: “An ex-Muslim convert to Christianity was attacked with boiling water and acid by Muslims at an ‘asylum reception centre’ in Norway on Friday. ‘Ali’ (Not his real name), an Asylum seeker in an immigration centre in Jaeren, Norway, had boiling water poured over him after he converted to Christianity and would not comply with Ramadan fasting rules. He and the other converts at the centre now fear for their lives.

“‘If you do not return to Islam, we will kill you’ was the message from the other asylum seekers at the Asylum Reception in Hå, in the Jaeren region of Norway. He refuses to disclose his real name for fear of further reprisals from them. This is also why he is pictured face down in the image above.

“If Afghan authorities found out about the incident and he were to be subsequently deported he risks being sentenced to death by stoning, he claims. He survived the incident, but has been left with a severely disfigured back, covered with flaking skin under bandages. The Christian roommate of his, Reza, dries the oozing wounds and put the blanket support under his head. Ali, his face distorted in pain, nevertheless maintains a calm voice as he tells his story: ‘Two of the Muslim residents asked why I had not fasted during Ramadan. When I would not answer, they began to discuss the matter. One of them said that he knew I was Muslim and converted to Christianity, and that they had to engage in Jihad’.”

And in the UK the Muslim clerics are encouraging all of this. “Anjem Choudary was secretly filmed mocking non-Muslims for working in 9-5 jobs their whole lives, and told followers that some revered Islamic figures had only ever worked one or two days a year.

“‘The rest of the year they were busy with jihad [holy war] and things like that,’ he said. ‘People will say, “Ah, but you are not working”. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar [non-believers]. So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance. You need to get support.’ He went on to tell a 30-strong crowd: ‘We are going to take England — the Muslims are coming’.”

Finally, in the US state of New Jersey we have this gruesome story: “Authorities found two beheaded men buried in Buena Vista, N.J., last week after being notified about suspicious activity at a local home. According to police, Yusuf Ibrahim, a 27-year-old man from Jersey City, allegedly killed the two Egyptian foreign nationals by shooting them in the chest; then, he reportedly cut off their heads and hands, burying the bodies and parts in a wooded area behind the house.

“An investigation was launched last Thursday, using cadaver dogs to locate soil that had recently been dug up. Under it, the two corpses were found. Later, at a nearby location, police also discovered the accompanying heads and hands, WNBC-TV reports.

“The bizarre details extend well beyond the murder, though. The accused was allegedly spotted last week driving a white Mercedes Benz that belonged to one of the victims. Later, he purportedly attempted to set the car ablaze in Philadelphia and subsequently abandoned it.”

And lest you think this can’t happen here, was it not just last week in Sydney that a man in a Muslim area beheaded his own father and kicked his mother down the stairs? It sounds like we need the warnings of Geert Wilders more than ever. All over the Western world we are seeing the very things he talks about occurring.

Yet the PC media and the leftist stooges just bury their heads in the sand and claim none of this is happening. They are living in denial and are nothing more than dhimmies. They are perfectly doing the bidding of their Islamist masters. And Geert Wilders is being treated as the bad guy here. Go figure.

  • Disgusting; repulsive; revolting; depraved; downright evil in every way! Islam would have to be the most murderous, wicked, and evil “religion” on God’s earth, the very antithesis of what our Lord taught and exemplified.
    Let some Muslim apologist come on to this site and defend these outrages! I dare him.
    If so, may he spare us the claptrap that these monsters “misunderstand” Islam, or that they have taken Qur’an verses out of context, or that the stories have been misreported, or some other tendentious spin-doctoring.

  • Yes quite right Murray.

    Now if a visiting MP came here spouting hatred against Christianity, he would be hailed as a hero, featured on Q&A, and given a free run by the MSM. But because Geert targets the real threat, militant Islam, he is ignored, vilified and abused. And yet all he says about the nature of Islam is quite true.

  • Bill,
    Alas, truth in these post-modern days is irrelevant. Certainly those thugs intimidating would-be hearers trying to enter the Geert Wilders rally are not supporting truth, but merely a side. But in such a frightening situation not even the ‘feel-good factor is of any account.
    And consistency counts for nothing either! We can cry “hypocrisy” till the cows come home, but the left is unmoved by that too.
    The bottom line: the left does not think rationally at all; they think tactically. Everything they do is a tactic to achieve their ends. That’s what we have to get in mind. For the left truth, consistency, honesty etc. are nothing. Tactics are everything.

  • Please note the Saudi government started a center in Vienna for “interfaith dialogue” and boasted to the world about this agenda of “peace” while Christians continue to be jailed for their faith all over the middle east and murdered in ever increasing numbers.
    I suggest Christians DEMAND they honor their pledge to society and we hold them accountable as one.
    I have personally tried to get an answer from them as to how we (the public) can be part of this “dialogue” to no avail.
    Please push this agenda to force accountability.

  • What awaits the Judeo Christian nations in the west while their politicians encourage Muslim immigration?

    The children in the west having a revival for Jesus Christ during the tribulation will be beheaded for their testimony. (Revelation 20:4)

  • Sorry the descriptions are enough for me. I won’t look at the pics.

  • Sweden has had a problem with Islamic/North African immigrants for some time now (just type in “Islam in Sweden” in Google), yet the government there only seems to kow-tow further!

    As for those cat murderers my contempt for them is boundless. I forgive them but swift and hard punishment is owing (and more-so for those who do that to people).

    Mick Koster

  • The other night I commented on your Facebook wall about how annoyed I got with the left wing activists at my uni. They were also quite capable of selective indignation, only highlighting those injustices that suited them, while ignoring others.

  • Bill we had that murder last year in Melbourne of a wife murdered by her husband. She had converted to Christianity and witnessed to many asylum seekers. This was clearly an “honour killing”. He buried her under a verandah of their house and said she was missing.

  • How remarkable that just as Wilders is being shunned from both sides of politics and the media, the Islamic ‘Peace Conference and Exhibition’ features a line-up of some of the most hateful of Islamic radicals you can find.

    Bolt lists them.

    What a stunning confirmation of Wilders’ message and rebuke to those dim-witted and too cowardly to give him a hearing!

  • As I live in Adelaide (and am at present, somewhat disabled) I am unable to show my support by attending the lectures by Mr. Wilders. It would be great if at least one of the events was video taped and the resultant DVD sold to those of us unable to attend any of the venues.
    I have to admit to being extremely concerned as to what will happen in Australia if the Church continues to slumber – whilst the Muslims are busy spreading their ideology, we are content to hold a regular service of a Sunday morning, so that we can come out ‘feeling good’ rather than being on fire to spread the Gospel.

  • My letter printed in today’s Sydney Sunday Telegraph paper, titled ‘Taking a world view for life’, Australians must and need to learn from what has happened overseas. It is called having a world view.
    Don’t let the mistakes of countries overseas happen in Australia. Be alert and wake up now before it is too late.

  • Joan,
    I was at the Sydney meeting and I think it was recorded on video. Perhaps an enquiry of the Q Society might be fruitful.

  • Question, Bill – what does the kitten have to do with Islam specifically, other than because it was a few Muslims that did it? If the shoe was on the other foot, we’d say that skinning cats alive isn’t part of our faith and just because a few so-called Christians did it doesn’t mean it has anything to do with Christ’s teachings… Maybe it’s in the article, but I didn’t click the links because I’d like to not have skinned-cat nightmares for the next month.

    Yes, the perpetrators (are) Muslim, and I get your general point, but that example is a bit of a red herring (?)

    Alison Keen

  • Thanks Alison

    No red herrings here; just another example of the violence which seems endemic in this culture. Ignore it if you like – there are thousands of other examples which can be mentioned here. One case alone proves nothing of course, but it is the cumulative case of 1400 years of bloodshed and violence which we need to consider.

  • Where is the public out-cry and investigation into animal cruelty, where the “Four Corners” coverage of this incident?
    Many blessings
    Ursula Bennett

  • The lectures have been recorded – a DVD of Geert’s speech will be available soon from Q Society.

    Hopefully the presentation given by Sam Solomon will also be included. Sam is a former Islamic jurist who studied and taught sharia law in an Islamic country. He became a Christian and was exiled from his Islamic country. He spoke most revealingly about Islam and its teaching at the same meetings as Geert Wilders – but there was NO mention of him in the mainstream press!
