Edina Lekovic: "the execution of this woman was heinous and completely in violation of Islamic teachings"

Sure, sure. Islamic teachings don’t  say ‘shoot the adulteress by putting 7 bullets in her’ – it says she should be stoned to death.

Once again, Islamofascists are telling us that Islam is not Islam and sharia is not sharia.

I still don’t understand what scientology has got to do with it, but if it wasn’t for them it would be the Jews.

Lekovic and Hussein Ibish, a Senior Fellow at the American Task Force on Palestine, emphasized the danger of having the media equate Islam with the extremist actions of the Taliban.

The Taliban however, are ‘students of Islam’. Somebody is pulling a fast one here. Wonder who?

Anti-Islam “Post” Cartoon Draws Complaints, Eye-Rolls

 Telling the truth about Islam is ‘anti-Islam’. Look away, kafir. Nothing to see here!

The tabloid compared Islam unfavorably to Scientology. “To draw this sort of sensational attack on Islam using the news peg of the TomKat divorce is just insane,” says Lekovic.

 

The spokeswoman for a leading Muslim-American group called the latest provocatin fromNew York Post cartoonist Sean Delonas “insane,” but the paper seems to have lost some of its its power to shock.

The cartoon, which compares an Afghan woman’s brutal execution at the hands of the Taliban to Katie Holmes’ struggles with Tom Cruise’s belief in Scientology, ran on Page Six of the PostThursday. Delonas’ image, a stylized depiction of the murder, sparked condemnation from some Muslims, who also said the cartoon as representative of the Post’s lengthy history of printing content offensive to Muslims.

“I think that the incident that took place with the execution of this woman was heinous and completely in violation of Islamic teachings,” said Edina Lekovic, Director of Policy & Programming at the Muslim Public Affairs Council. “But to draw this sort of sensational attack on Islam using the news peg of the TomKat divorce is just insane.”

Lekovic and Hussein Ibish, a Senior Fellow at the American Task Force on Palestine, emphasized the danger of having the media equate Islam with the extremist actions of the Taliban.

“To imply that the Taliban are representative of Muslims or Islam — it’s reductive in a very damaging way,” Ibish said.

“I think it does a disservice to Scientology, Islam, and the Post all at the same time. And I’m somebody who loves political cartoons,” Lekovic said. “I picture new Yorkers flipping through this on the subway and I cringe.”

Delonas is perhaps best known for a cartoon depicting President Obama as a monkey, which drew wide condemnation and an official apology, but The Post, a no-holds-barred conservative tabloid, has also flack from Muslim leaders occasionally over the years for Delonas’s work. Complaints in 2002, in fact, led some Muslim shopkeepers to cease carrying the paper in their stores.

But Muslim leaders — working in the shadow, in part, of extremist attacks on a Danish cartoonist — have stopped calling attention to the images.

“Luckily I don’t think people are taking the bait,” Lekovic said, adding that she did not know of any organized public response to the Post’s cartoon.

  1. The murder of the young woman is standard fare in islamic countries. Lokovic should go live in one for a few years.

  2. Muslim shopkeepers ceased carrying the New York Post – ‘a no-holds-barred conservative tabloid’.

    An excellent recommendation to read it! I’m off to check it out.

  3. “I think it does a disservice to Scientology, Islam, and the Post all at the same time.” Seriously, how can it be a disservice to ridicule Scientology and or Islam? How can either be taken seriously by anyone with more than a third grade education? Their very existence ridicules and constantly insults the tolerance of the sane world. One “religion” contrived by a science fiction writer and the other contrived by savages. Their very own attitudes and behaviors are the worst insult to themselves possible.

  4. “I think that the incident that took place with the execution of this woman was heinous and completely in violation of Islamic teachings”

    Notice the quote … she didn’t say that the execution was in violation of Islamic teachings, she said that the incident that took place “with the execution of this woman”. I don’t know what incident she was talking about, but she is obviously a taqiyya spouting troll.

    Anyway, yeah, right, along with the thousands of other executions, lashings, stonings, acid throwings, beatings, chokings, beheadings, live burials, shootings, squashings by vehicles, limb loppings, etc. that are also “heinous and completely in violation of Islamic teachings”. Give me a break.

  5. And yet these acts against woman by Muslim men go one all the time. Sometimes sponsored by Islamic regimes, i.e. the national norm.

  6. The thing is that these sex and death obsessed fascists are flooding into the West, and bringing their vile ideology with them. Meanwhile we have to watch morons like Hanson-Young crying in parliament. Maybe Hansen-Young should go and live in a hell hole like Kabul for a few months. Im sure that might change her attitude of the Religion of Piss.
