Obama Advisor Delivered Presidential Threat To Pakistan Over Detained American, Say Officials
Islamic law, shari’a, forbids non-Muslims, known as dhimmi, from possessing arms and defending themselves from attacks by Muslims. The disarmament is one aspect of the pervasive civil inferiority imposed on non-Muslims, a status known as dhimmitude. This Article examines the historical effects of the shari’a disarmament, based on three books by Bat Ye’or, the world’s leading scholar of dhimmitude. As Ye’or details, the disarmament has had catastrophic consequences, extending far beyond the direct loss of the dhimmis’ ability to defend themselves against Muslim attack.Â The Islamic Plan for Gun Control
This amazing chain of deaths in Pakistan, like chapters in a very black melodrama, could have serious international ramifications:
Raymond Davis, 36, was remanded in custody for another 14 days by the Lahore High Court yesterday while a higher court decides whether he is a US diplomat entitled to immunity from prosecution, as Washington insists.
Mr Davis, 36, has reportedly told police he shot the two armed motorcyclists in self-defence, believing they were planning to rob or kidnap him, after they approached his car at an intersection in Lahore on January 27.
But Lahore police chief Aslam Tareen rejected the self-defence claims at an extraordinary press conference yesterday…
“He gave no chance to them to survive. It was cold-blooded murder. Eyewitnesses have told police he directly shot at them, and he kept shooting even when one was running away.”
No fingerprints were on the triggers of the pistols found on the men’s bodies, he said, and tests showed the bullets remained in the magazine of their guns, and not the chamber.
The US embassy and State Department have accused Pakistan of breaching conventions by remanding in custody an official with diplomatic status. The embassy has demanded Mr Davis’s release and refused to hand over to Pakistani authorities a second American, who rushed to help his colleague and in the process ran over and killed a third Pakistani…. The suicide on Sunday of the widow of one of the men shot by Mr Davis has fuelled the public anger and the government is under intense pressure not to bow to US demands.
Regardless of one’s personal opinions on the matter, Pakistan has ratified the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations treaty of 1961 (which ironically celebrates its anniversary this April), which provides diplomats protection from prosecution, diplomatic immunity.Â It reads:
Article 29. Diplomats must not be liable to any form of arrest or detention. They are immune from civil or criminal prosecution, though the sending country may waive this right under Article 32. Under Article 34, they are exempt from most taxes, and under Article 36 they are exempt from most customs duties.
It also states that Pakistan may only challenge this section in the International Court of Justice.Â Pakistan’s only other recourse;
Article 9. The host nation may at any time and for any reason declare a particular member of the diplomatic staff to be persona non grata. The sending state must recall this person within a reasonable period of time, or otherwise this person may lose their diplomatic immunity.
If the man in detention is a diplomat, Pakistan is in violation of international law.Â They signed up for it.
But the laws of infidels doesn’t apply to the soldiers of Allah in an Islamic country. Raymond is in deep doodoo…
