"Anyone who knows about Islam knows that stoning is Islamic law. There are people who call it inhuman, but in doing so, they insult the prophet"

Just to prepare you better when you run into some Muslims who’ll tell you that “stoning is not in the Koran”….

Six months later, there have been no arrests in the stoning death of a young Afghan couple who had eloped. One will recall that this was the case where Afghanistan’s president, Hamid Karzai, condemned the execution without trial, but did not say a wordabout the method of execution. Our moderate “Friend and Ally” would not condemn stoning as he tried to win the favor of clerics who want the worst of Sharia’s punishments enforced.

Cat Stevens School Promotes ‘Complete Submission of Humanity’ to Allah…

Harry’s Place

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 the Islamia Schools, whose Chair of Governors and founder is Cat Stevens. The school  received state funding, from 1998 onwards.

This was its 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. 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:

Iran: “Adulteress” to be stoned to death Wednesday

Update from Haaretz: woman to be hanged Wednesday, rights group says

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):

There are no Mollified Muslims, but a lot of Muslimized Mollies:

It is a basic rule of life that if you reward bad behavior, you get more of it. Every time Muslims either commit violence or threaten it, we reward them by capitulating. Indeed, President Obama, Justice Breyer, General Petraeus, and all the rest are now telling Islam, you don’t have to kill anyone, you don’t even have to threaten to kill anyone. We’ll be your enforcers. We’ll demand that the most footling and insignificant of our own citizens submit to the universal jurisdiction of Islam. So Obama and Breyer are now the “good cop” to the crazies’ “bad cop”. Ooh, no, you can’t say anything about Islam, because my friend here gets a little excitable, and you really don’t want to get him worked up. The same people who tell us “Islam is a religion of peace” then turn around and tell us you have to be quiet, you have to shut up because otherwise these guys will go bananas and kill a bunch of people.  (Source)

Leftists are furious, of course. Any criticism of non-nationals tends to inflame them, even when the values of those immigrants are opposed to the values of Western liberals. On which Mark Steyn writes:

Too many people in the free world have internalized Islam’s view of them. A couple of years ago, I visited Guantanamo and subsequently wrote that, if I had to summon up Gitmo in a single image, it would be the brand-new copy of the Koran in each cell: To reassure incoming prisoners that the filthy infidels haven’t touched the sacred book with their unclean hands, the Korans are hung from the walls in pristine, sterilized surgical masks. It’s one thing for Muslims to regard infidels as unclean, but it’s hard to see why it’s in the interests of us infidels to string along with it and thereby validate their bigotry. What does that degree of prostration before their prejudices tell them about us? It’s a problem that Muslims think we’re unclean. It’s a far worse problem that we go along with it.

EU springs into action on stoning:

Rome, 3 Sept. (AKI) – European Parliament vice-president Roberta Angelilli on Friday vowed to push through a debate next week and resolution condemning Tehran over the Iranian woman Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who faces death by stoning.   “We have decided to mobilise the European Parliament to give voice to a protest, perhaps something more, a genuine rebellion of consciences against this violation of human rights, which we consider barbaric, inhumane and cruel,” said Angelilli.

Imagine the international outcry, the furious denunciations, the hand-wringing over “Islamophobia,” if a Western leader spoke this way about Iran. But about this, the world yawns. “Ahmadinejad predicts the removal of ‘Zionists’ from the world,” from the Telegraph, via JW

Here’s Hugh Fitzgerald on the subject, from way back in 2004:

It is true that Islam regards lands once part of the dar al-Islam as first on the list of lands to be reconquered — hence Israel (particularly galling given its geographic position), but many Muslims keep noting that “we lost Spain, India” not as a matter for the past but of present fury. But, in fact, in Islamic teachings there is no need to bring up any putative Muslim population, because ALL people were originally Muslim (all Christians and Jews were BORN Muslim, but their faith was somehow perverted); all lands belong to Allah, and therefore to Allah’s people, the Muslims…

Israeli ambassador to U.S.: Hizballah has 15,000 rockets hidden beneath hospitals, homes, and schools

Human shields, and war crimes waiting to happen on Hizballah’s part. And nothing will be done to stop them. There is certainly no political will in Lebanon or at the U.N.to do so, just as prior calls for Hizballah to disarm have not been worth the paper they’re printed on.

No, if and when hostilities resume (and Hizballah isn’t amassing all these arms to sit and look at them), this report will be long forgotten, and almost everyone will blame Israel. “US envoy Oren warns: Hizbullah has 15,000 rockets on border,” from the Jerusalem Post, September 3:


There is no fun in Islam…

There is no mercy either:

Saudi comedy provokes anger with episode in which woman marries four husbands

Call it interfaith cooperation of sorts, as steaming Saudi Sunnis prove the Shi’ite Ayatollah Khomeini’s assertion that:

Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.”

“Role reversal Saudi comedy provokes anger among male population,” by Richard Spencer for the Telegraph, August 17, via JW: Saudi comedy

Christians cannot be portrayed in a positive way:

A popular Saudi holiday sitcom has drawn the ire of conservative clerics over an episode portraying Arab Christians in a positive light after the kingdom sought to sell itself as a leader of dialogue between faiths.

And that’s drawn fire as well, with Reuters reporting:

“A Muslim is allowed to praise only the one true religion — Islam,” said Eissa al-Ghaith, a judge at the Justice Ministry, in remarks carried by al-Madina newspaper on Sunday.

Independent Islamic scholar Abdulwahab al-Salhi said the “indecent lot of ‘Tash Ma Tash’ … used drama to destroy Muslims’ stable religious principles by portraying Christians as believers and not apostates.”

Happy interfaithing!


Taliban kill couple in public stoning

A man and woman have been stoned to death in northern Afghanistan after being accused by the Taliban of having an affair.

Update:

The 23-year-old woman and 28-year-old man were killed because “they had an affair,” said Mohammad Ayob, the governor of Imam Sahib district in Kunduz province.

“Two people were stoned to death by Taliban in Mullah Quli village late yesterday,” he said. The village is under the control of the Taliban.

Mullah Quli resident Abdul Satar said about 100 people, most of them Taliban insurgents, gathered in the village on Sunday evening as a statement was read out saying the pair had confessed to their affair.

He said the man was married to someone else, and the woman was engaged.

“The Taliban convicted both to stoning to death, some from the crowd started throwing stones at the couple until they died,” Mr Satar said. (Telegraph UK/read the full story)

Of course there are many in Afghanistan who insist that stoning is the law of the land, as we can see here:

Afghanistan: Clerics twist Karzai’s arm for return to “strict Islamic law”

“No law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam” (Chapter 1, Article 3).

Thus, where there is any doubt or conflict in the Afghan government, Islamic law wins by constitutional fiat. What could possibly go wrong? Exactly what is reported in the story below: the demand for all the things we’ve been assured countless times don’t really happen in Sharia law, like stonings, floggings, and amputation, as well as execution for apostasy from Islam. But these Misunderstanders of Islam are digging in and demanding them.

Iran back to the stoning age (Andrew Bolt)

THE Iranian woman whose sentence to death by stoning sparked an international outcry is feared to be facing imminent execution, after she was put on a state-run TV program where she confessed to adultery and involvement in a murder.

Speaking shakily in her native Azeri language, which could be heard through a voice-over, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, 43, told an interviewer on Wednesday that she was an accomplice to the murder of her husband and that she had an extramarital relationship with her husband’s cousin.

Her lawyer told The Guardian that his client, a mother of two, was tortured for two days before the interview was recorded in Tabriz prison, where she has been held for four years.

With so much devotion to traditional Islamic teachings, Afghanistan’s clerics don’t want to be left behind:

About 350 of the Islamic clerics, or ulema, met for three days this week, the meeting ending with a declaration calling on President Hamid Karzai to enact sharia, or Islamic law, including punishments such as stonings, lashing, amputation and execution. (Reuters)

"Stoning is Not in the Koran"

But, but, but: doesn’t the Koran cover every aspect of life and death? At least that’s what Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says:

Unfortunately, the Koran is causing more problems than bloody solutions. But the  misunderstanders of Islam keep doing what they do best:

Just as the media outrage over the planned stoning of an accused adulteress in Iran is winding down, with the predictable claims that Islam doesn’t sanction stoning, more Misunderstanders of Islam crop up, this time in Pakistan.

As usual, the army of obfuscators and Islamic apologists is spinning like Iranian centrifuges, and the Caliphate News Networx provides the soapbox to get the message out:

Islamic apologists featured at CNN: Relax, stoning isn’t in the Qur’an!

So there shouldn’t be a problem, right? Wrong. That does not begin to exonerate Islam from playing a role in stonings committed under Islamic law.

Apologists like to give the impression that Islam is a sola scriptura affair, relying entirely on the content of the Qur’an. It makes it easier to sell unbelievers the notion of the Qur’an as uncreated, complete unto itself, and not dependent on the cultural and temporal context in which it was purportedly revealed to Muhammad.

In this respect, the Quran describes the atheists as “cattle”, as cattle of those who grow the crops and do not stop and wonder about this world.” [+]

Human Rights for our enemies, but not for their victims.

Nonie Darwish exposes once again the useful idiots and their perverted sympathies for Muslim infiltrated Human Rights organizations. Organizations that are not only self-serving and totally corrupt, but  so beneath contempt that they don’t even shy away from begging from Arabs in order to stay afloat.

The Israeli Prime Minister’s office stood up and took notice:

“A human rights organization raising money in Saudi Arabia is like a women’s rights group asking the Taliban for a donation,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s spokesman Mark Regev  said Monday.

“If you can fundraise in Saudi Arabia, why not move on to Somalia, Libya and North Korea?” he said. “For an organization that claims to offer moral direction, it appears that Human Rights Watch has seriously lost its moral compass.” J’Post
