Can you imagine what kind of brainwashed killer zombies they churn out there?
Jon Stewart unapologetic for being a useful idiot, inviting Yusuf “Kill Rushdie” Islam to “sanity” rally
And he still thinks he is on the side of the enlightened. An update onÂ this story. “Jon Stewart Doesn’t Regret Inviting Fatwa-Endorsing Singer to Rally,” by Alana Goodman forÂ Newsbusters, November 2:
We’ve been discussing whether Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam has mellowed with old age, and may now no longer support the creation of an Islamic State, the extradition of apostates to that state for execution, and the stoning of women. As far as we can tell, he has not publicly retracted these views.
However, people are entitled to believe whatever unpleasant nonsense they want, as long as they do not act upon it.
What I’m more concerned about is the mission statement of theÂ Islamia Schools, whose Chair of Governors and founder is Cat Stevens. The school Â received state funding, from 1998 onwards.
This was itsÂ mission statement up until at least 2006:
The aim of the School is to produce total Muslim personalities through the training of the child’s spirit, intellect, feelings and bodily senses. Education at Islamia caters for the growth of students in all their spiritual, intellectual, imaginative, physical, scientific and linguistic aspects, both individually and collectively, motivating all these aspects towards goodness.Â The ultimate aim of Islamic education is the realization of complete submission to Allah on the level of the individual, the community and humanity at large.
No doubt Yusuf Islam, aka ‘Cat Stevens’, would approve of this:
Tehran gives go-ahead for excution of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, originally sentenced to death by stoning for adultery.
Do Western women really want Iran to guard their rights? (Andrew Bolt)
These days, with Sharia being relatively high-profile, it has become common for Islamic apologists and whitewashers to claim that Sharia is nowhere being properly implemented today, and in particular that Saudi Arabia and Iran are not actually Sharia states at all, despite their own claims. This is, of course, manifestly absurd. Stoning for adultery, to take just this present example, is a Sharia punishment taught by all themadhahib (schools of Islamic jurisprudence) and founded upon Muhammad’s example as delineated by numerous ahadith. “Iran: Adulteress ‘to be executed Wednesday,'” fromAKI, November 2 (thanks to JW):
Tehran, 2 Nov. (AKI) – An Iranian woman who was sentenced to death by stoning after being found guilty of adultery and helping kill her husband, will be executed on Wednesday, according to a statement by a group that opposes stoning in Iran.”The Islamic regime of Iran plans to execute Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani immediately,” said a statement on the International Committee Against Stoning (ICAS).
The group didn’t give details on the method that will use to execute Ashtiani, but following an international campaign , Iran in July said a stoning sentence had been suspended.
Ashtiani was convicted of adultery in 2006 and according to human rights activists forced to confess after being subjected to 99 lashes. She later recanted that confession and has denied wrongdoing.
Ashtiani’s son and lawyer have been arrested and tortured by Iranian authorities, ICAS has said.
