Iraq: having a western hairstyle or wearing 'American jeans' can get you killed

The number of dead and the brutality of their deaths are staggering, and almost beyond belief. But the report has been picked up by major news organizations, including the Daily Mail.

One of the starkest differences between the values we defend and the sort of society which Islamic supremacists would inflict on us is in the value of human life. On dismal display here is how cheap human life is once it has forfeited its access to protection on incredibly flimsy pretexts: apparently human life has value until it steps out of line. Then, all bets are off.

Sharia consistently fails to perform as it is advertised to Western audiences on the protection of human rights. “Dozens of Iraqi teenagers stoned to death for ‘emo’ haircuts: activists,” from Al Arabiya, March 10 (thanks to Atlas Shrugs):

Iraqi activists said this picture belongs to a teenager who was brutally killed by religious police for having an “emo” hairstyle.

Iraq: “Morality police” stone to death at least 90 young men for “emo” appearance

More than 90 Iraqi students have been stoned to death for their Emo haircuts by religious extremists in Baghdad in the past month after Iraq’s  interior ministry dubbed it ‘devil worshipping’.

Iraq’s Moral Police released a statement on the interior ministry’s website condemning the ’emo phenomenon’ among Iraqi youth, declaring its intent to ‘eliminate’ the trend.

The move is part of a wider clampdown on young people taking on what government officials call ‘Western appearances’ in Iraq.

The mass-murderers say that this was a counterattack in the Church’s alleged war against Islam. Yet notice how CNN’s headline calls it an “Iraq church standoff,” giving no hint that this was a gratuitous Islamic jihad attack. “Death toll rises to 58 in Iraq church standoff,” by Mohammed Tawfeeq for CNN, November 1, via JW:

Baghdad, Iraq (CNN) — The death toll from a hostage standoff at a Catholic church in Baghdad has risen to 58, police officials with the Iraqi Interior Ministry said Monday.

No it doesn’t.

It means SUBMISSION.  And all those who don’t follow the “correct” Islam are the enemies of Allah, that’s why they must be killed.

(Musel-) Man sentenced to death in Jordan after killing wife for refusing sex

Yet another misunderstander of Islam who’s got his religion all wrong? Check out Muslim Woman, here…

A JORDANIAN man was sentenced to death last night for killing his wife and chopping her body up into small pieces because she allegedly refused to have sex with him, a court official said.

“Amman’s criminal court condemned to death the 28-year-old man, who worked as a nurse, for killing his wife in December 2007, claiming she stopped having sex after giving birth to a baby boy during their 18-month-old marriage,” the official said.

“Alleging that his wife, who was in her twenties, disrespected him and disobeyed him, the convict murdered the woman after drugging her.”

The official said the man, who hid the remains in different places to cover up his crime in Ruseifa, northeast of the capital Amman, was arrested in November 2008 after investigations revealed he was behind the murder.

“I want to tell you that I just killed my wife and I’m here to turn myself in”

Muzz before he beheaded her

Hassan’s calm call and confession to the police is consistent with the behavior of the perpetrators of other Islamic honor killings around the world. Many times they are quite calm after doing the deed, turn themselves in, and sometimes even express gratitude to Allah for the chance to cleanse their family’s honor. “Cops Detail Statements by Accused Muslim TV Exec in Wife’s Killing,” from 1010 WINS, JW  has more

“People don’t forgive. They don’t have mercy.”

And when they are released from prison, they face the prospect of additional violence and honor killings at the hands of their families and former communities: “We’ve come across cases where young women have preferred to stay in prison or custody than to be released….”

Apologists might claim this is “un-Islamic,” and possibly suggest that a more rigorous application of Sharia would prevent this sort of thing. But the problem itself emanates from the position of women under Islamic law as fundamentally under the control of male relatives (Qur’an 4:34) — essentially, possessions. “Sex slave girls face cruel justice in Iraq,” by Mohammed Jamjoom for CNN, May 5: JW has more>>

Shiite Mosques Bombed Again in Baghdad

Shiite Rafidite Dogs On The Receiving End of Sunni Bombing/Graphic Slideshow

The Iraq surge did not work, folks, not because our armed forces failed in their part of the mission, but because the Iraqis did not, could not, do politically what they were supposed to do.  The rift between Sunni and Shiite goes back in Islamic history for about twelve centuries.  The rift is eternal and it is irreparable.  Historian and author Hugh Fitzgerald of wrote a marvelous essay on this surge failure, and author Diana West just completed a three part series here.

LIVESHOTS: NYC Subway Terror Suspect Pleads Guilty

New York subway jihad plotter quotes Qur’an verse justifying suicide bombing

Looks like Muhammad Tahir ul Qadri’s fartwa is not working too well:

The last part of this, Ahmedzay’s rant against “Zionist Jews,” not reproduced below, was reported yesterday. This report is extraordinary for the fact that it shows Ahmedzay quoting Qur’an 9:111 to justify suicide bombing. This is a common tactic of suicide bombing recruiters, but to point it out in teh West usually brings one a charge of “Islamophobia.” I guess Ahmedzay must be an “Islamophobe.” “Zarein Ahmedzay’s statement when he pleaded guilty to terrorist charges,” from the New York Post, April 23 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

“Your Honor, I would like to quote from the Qur’an.””Quote, Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their wealth for the price of Paradise, to fight in the way of Allah, to kill and get killed. It is a promise binding on the truth in the Torah, the Gospel and the Qur’an, end of quote.

That’s Qur’an 9:111, the justification for suicide attacks. The only guarantee of Paradise in the Qur’an is this verse, which guarantees it to those who kill and are killed for Allah.

This once again underscores the jihadist contention that they represent Islamic authenticity — a charge never yet refuted by Muslim “moderates” in any way that has proven effective to change jihadists’ minds.

Oh well, not to worry. We all know that suicide bombing is un-Islamic, right?

But read Qur’an 9:111,  and you’ll find the justification for suicide attacks. The only guarantee of Paradise in the Qur’an is this verse, which guarantees it to those who kill and are killed for Allah.

Iraq: female suicide bomber kills 41 in attack on Shia pilgrims


A female suicide bomber killed at least 41 people when she blew herself up among Shia pilgrims in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.

Police said more than 100 people were also injured in the attack in northern Baghdad. Women and children were among the dead.  More>>

The pilgrims were making their way to the southern holy city of Karbala to mark a revered day on the Shia calendar. It raised fears of an escalation of attacks when the pilgrimage culminates on Friday.

US out, Iraq collapsing into chaos

But hey, it’s a victory, as far as Maliki is concerned! “Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki has taken to calling the withdrawal of American combat troops from Iraq’s cities by next Tuesday a ‘great victory,’ a repulsion of foreign occupiers he compares to the rebellion against British troops in 1920.” -  New York Times via JW

In any case, any “victory” the Americans won in Iraq was sure to be undone as soon as the troops were gone, and we are already seeing that. Sunni will go after Shi’ite and vice versa, the Iranians will press forward to create a Shi’ite client state, the non-Muslims will be victimized more than ever — Hugh Fitzgerald in particular has been saying for years that this would happen, and every days the news shows anew that he was right all along.

Don’t mention the warming war

Andrew Bolt – Monday, July 13, 09 

No more than you’d expect – or say of the ABC, too: No Dissent Allowed

Peter Sissons, the veteran newsreader who announced his retirement last month, … claims it is now ‘effectively BBC policy’ to stifle critics of the consensus view on global warming.

He says: ‘I believe I am one of a tiny number of BBC interviewers who have so much as raised the possibility that there is another side to the debate on climate change. The Corporation’s most famous interrogators invariably begin by accepting that “the science is settled”, when there are countless reputable scientists and climatologists producing work that says it isn’t.

‘But it is effectively BBC policy… that those views should not be heard.’

  • “Al-Qaeda attacked us to sabotage the American withdrawal”…

BAGHDAD, June 20 — A truck bomb killed at least 63 people Saturday as they were leaving a mosque near the contested northern city of Kirkuk, shattering a recent lull in violence and raising fears of renewed bloodshed as U.S. forces complete their withdrawal from Iraqi cities by the end of the month.

The bombing came shortly after Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki urged a gathering in Baghdad to remain steadfast if the American withdrawal leads to a resurgence in attacks.

“I and you are sure that many don’t want us to succeed and celebrate this victory,” he said. “They are getting themselves ready to move in the dark to destabilize the situation, but we will be ready for them, God willing.”
