Inner Struggle in Turkey: a Bishop Beheaded; Allahu Akbar!

Turkey: Bishop’s assassin shouted “Allah akbar,” and “I killed the great Satan!”

The bishop was stabbed in the heart eight times and decapitated…. but hey: nothing to do with Islam. You know the drill…..

The ability of the all-too-standard “insanity” defense to explain away this attack is getting weaker all the time. “Funeral of Mgr. Padovese. Murderer, ‘I killed the great Satan!’,” by Geries Othman for Asia News,via JW

The autopsy reveal that Mgr. Padovese had knife wounds all over his body, but especially in the heart (at least 8). His head was almost completely detached from his neck, attached to his body by only the skin of the back of the neck.

the murderer had told police that he his actions were the result of a ” divine revelation.”…

Muhammad had one of those, too, interestingly: “Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks…” (Qur’an 47:4). Does Muhammad get an insanity defense?


According to police sources, it seems that Murat is offering a new justification for his action: Mgr. Padovese was a homosexual, Murat, 26, was the victim, “forced to suffer abuse.” The killing of the bishop was not martyrdom, but an act of “legitimate defence”.

Hmm. They tried that one when they murdered Eugene Terrreblanche, did anyone believe it?

“It’s already enough that you don’t worship Allah, so . . . that’s a reason for you to die”

“Unbelief is worse than slaughter…”

in saying that “it’s already enough that you don’t worship Allah, so . . . that’s a reason for you to die,” this jihadist confirms that Islamic hardliners don’t view non-Muslims as innocent — thus rendering meaningless the condemnations of attacks on “innocent people” that have been issued by Islamic advocacy groups with unsavory ties to jihad terror.

Al Reuters is back in the photoshop business

Why does Reuters insist on embellishing the truth and trying to make these attacks look less violent than they actually were? Recall this article by Melanie Philips in the summer of 2006. All you have to do is change “Hezbullah” to “Turkey” or “Hamas” or the “IHH” and change “Lebanon” to “Gaza”:  There’s more about the pictures here, here and here/ Memeorandum/Carl in J’lem

One thought on “Inner Struggle in Turkey: a Bishop Beheaded; Allahu Akbar!”

  1. do you know they even label/bully/kill Turks who behave/think differently? This is not the mainstream Islam in Turkey. There are lots of radical groups. Adding, this murder happened years ago. Why to post it now? You are biased!
