The Apostasy of Hatun Tash

Last Saturday a young woman named Hatun Tash was attacked with a knife and slashed in the face by an as yet unidentified assailant at Speakers’ Corner in London. Ms. Tash is a former Muslim and convert to Christianity who regularly preaches the gospel to Muslims in Hyde Park. She was wearing a Charlie Hebdo t-shirt at the time of the attack.

As of this writing, her attacker has not been named, so there is as yet no Mohammed Coefficient for the incident, nor can we be certain that the assailant was a Muslim.

However, the knifeman was clearly attempting to cut her in the neck, and one may assume that he intended to slit her throat in the same manner as a beast is slaughtered at the festival of Eid Al-Adha. That act would have been followed by full beheading, if he were allowed to complete the task, because such is the punishment for kufr, or unbelief.

See this Breitbart article for a general account of what happened at Speakers’ Corner.

In the following video, David Wood of Acts 17 Apologetics shows several clips with footage of the attack on Ms. Tash, and then explains its scriptural justification as found in the Koran, the Hadith, and the Sira:

Hatun Tash actually committed at least two “crimes” that carry the death penalty under Islamic law: apostasy and insulting the prophet.

The book ’Umdat al-salik wa ’uddat al-nasik, or The reliance of the traveller and tools of the worshipper is commonly referred to as Reliance of the Traveller when cited in English. This is an authoritative source on Sunni Islamic law, because it is certified as such by Al-Azhar University in Cairo. There is no higher authority on Sunni Islamic doctrine than Al-Azhar; it is the closest equivalent to the Vatican that can be found in Islam.

From Book O, “Justice”, we learn that:

Leaving Islam is the ugliest form of unbelief and the worst. [o8.0]

Whoever voluntarily leaves Islam is killed.

[…]

When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed. [o8.1]

The second capital count against Hatun Tash was defamation against Islam, also know as Islamic slander, or ghiba. It is considered an act of apostasy.

Consulting Book O, “Justice”, in Reliance of the Traveller, we learn that the following acts constitute leaving Islam (§o8.7):

The Mullahs’ Mosque in Hamburg

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Die Welt:

Iran mosque in Hamburg is supposed to implement “Islamic revolution”

For years, the Islamic Center Hamburg (IZH) has staged itself as a non-political meeting place. New findings from the Office for the Protection of the Constitution show how tight the lines are to Iran’s regime — and to a terrorist organization.

At the Hamburg State Office for the Protection of the Constitution (LfV), there are new findings about the close links between the Islamic Center Hamburg (IZH) and the Iranian regime.

Current Iranian documents serve as evidence that the IZH is an “outpost of Tehran bound by instructions,” the LfV states in a multi-page report that Die Welt has evaluated. The aim is to “export” the Islamic revolution worldwide.

This is particularly relevant as IZH representatives have been denying allegations of political influence from Iran for years. In addition, the controversial mosque community still receives political backing from Hamburg’s red-green Senate. The new findings also concern connections between the IZH and the terrorist organization Hezbollah.

The director of IZH, Imam Mohammad Hadi Moffateh, affirmed months ago in an interview with Die Welt: “Neither before nor after the revolution did the Islamic Center Hamburg have any connections with the Iranian state.” At the same time, Moffateh confirmed that he was in personal contact with state leader Khamenei.

The LfV emphasizes that new documents even show that the IZH head is bound by instructions to the regime. In several letters addressed directly to Moffateh, he was described as an “honored representative of the Supreme Leader, Head of the Islamic Center Hamburg”. The IZH is the sponsoring association of the Blue Mosque on the Outer Alster.

“This is a quasi official confirmation that Mofatteh is to be regarded as the official deputy of Khomeini’s successor Ayatollah Khamenei”, confirms the LfV. Moffateh had received another letter from a well-known Holocaust denier.

“ACCORDING TO THE INTELLIGENCE OF THE OFFICE FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION, THE IZH CONTINUES TO STAND FOR AN ISLAMIST REGIME THAT IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH THE VALUES OF THE BASIC LAW.”

— STATE OFFICE FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE CONSTITUTION HAMBURG

The protection of the constitution accuses the IZH as a whole of unbelievable self-portrayal as an independent institution. “The newly acquired knowledge confirms that the IZH is one of the most important institutions of the Iranian regime in Europe”, LfV spokesman Marco Haase clarifies in an interview with Die Welt.

Kurt Westergaard R.I.P.

Muhammad cartoonist Kurt Westergaard has died

by Almgren

The well-known Danish artist Kurt Westergaard has died at the age of 86. Westergaard became widely known when his illustration of the Muslim prophet Muhammad was published in Jyllands-Posten in 2005.

As a cartoonist at Jyllands-Posten, Kurt Westergaard became the embodiment of freedom of expression in Denmark, Berlingske writes in a obituary of the artist. His cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad created one of Denmark’s biggest foreign policy crises ever, Ekstra Bladet recalls.

Westergaard has described himself as “a culturally radical half-hippie who advocates peace, space for all and good coexistence.”

In addition to creating a foreign policy crisis, Westergaard’s drawing made him an object of hatred for Muslims around the world. According to information, a price of several million kronor was put on his head, the newspaper writes. He was soon forced to live under the constant protection of PET, the Danish security and intelligence service.

Attacked in his home

On January 1, 2010, a man with a Somali background broke into Westergaard’s home and attacked him with an ax and a knife. Westergaard escaped by locking himself in his bathroom, which the authorities refitted as a security room.

Police were quickly on the scene and shot the attacker in one leg and arm, after he also attacked them with his weapons. The man was sentenced to ten years in prison and then deported for life. Following the assassination attempt, Westergaard’s PET bodyguard protection was further expanded.

A couple of years later, a 29-year-old man was also arrested. This after making a bomb threat against Westergaard.

Westergaard was born in Døstrup in North Jutland. Before he started as a cartoonist at Jyllands-Posten in 1983, he had worked for several years as a teacher of German and a school inspector. At Jyllands-Posten, Westergaard continued to work as a subscriber until his retirement in 2010.

“I want to be remembered as someone who fought for freedom of speech. But there is no doubt that there are those who instead remember me as a Satan who insulted the religion of a billion people.”

Westergaard fell asleep in silence after a long illness. He leaves behind a wife, five children, ten grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

The Clueless Clucking Clan

MC’s latest essay concerns the intersection of Racism, Woke ideology, and the Corona “pandemic”.

The Clueless Clucking Clan

by MC

I am an anti-vaxxer. I have spent hours of study, looking at the benefits of vaccines, and also the risks associated with vaccines, and the effectiveness of vaccines — I have also followed the money…

In my opinion, it is not a pretty picture.

My oldest son had a febrile fit following on from an MMR injection (he is now 40) — he survived, and in spite of some small personality changes, he was OK.

It was my sister-in-law who warned us about the MMR Jab and its dubious history (the first version was withdrawn after adverse side-effects were reported). My wife and I had argued over having the jab for our son; unfortunately, I won.

I would encourage all parents to do the research for themselves, here is a good place to start.

If I wanted to break the Constitution of the USA I would have to choose my point of attack very carefully; I would need to get the People to want to break it, to be so fearful of outcomes as to voluntarily submit to destroying individual choice for the benefit of the ‘group’.

What could be better, then, than a ‘Satan Bug‘ and a vaccine that ‘must’ be administered to all for it to be ‘safe’ and effective and provide ‘salvation’?

It is not white supremacy as such which is the problem, after all, almost all of the original communists were white (and mostly male — Kollontai and Luxemburg being the exceptions). Most of those who fought against slavery were white, and most of those who dreamt up ideas of individual liberty and freedom were also white.

It is ironic that dead white men are also behind the wokism that so besets the modern USA and most of the rest of the world, and one might even think that any intelligent non-white wokista would smell a rat…

Imagine a modern implementation of the post-bellum Ku Klux Klan, but designed to support minority non-white interests instead of defeated ‘white’ interests. What would it look like? It seems to me that the Democrat party has once more scraped through the bottom of their barrel of dirty tricks and come up with an inverted KKK clone — lets call it the CCC.

The assassination of President Lincoln created political chaos, especially as he had chosen a Democrat as his running mate Vice President in the hope of some sort of reconciliation. President Trump was not assassinated as such, but a majority of Americans believe that there was election fraud, and that Sleepy Joe is just not legitimate.

The reactions of the Democrats to the Arizona election audit has convinced me that there is something to hide here. Instead of welcoming an audit as an honest winner would do, the Democrats are squirming like a child who has had an ‘accident’.

Wokism is pure racism and is Nazism in drag. It will soon turn lethal if not scotched. The political buildup that led to Adolf Hitler started with a ‘red/green’ alliance; The socialism of German Workers’ Party (DAP) combined with the ‘volkism’ of the Thule, Vril and Wandervogel pseudo-religious cults gave us the NSDAP and many millions dead.

Another Phony Islamic Academic

This story about a bogus professor of Islam in Germany brings to mind the silver-tongued philosopher and snake-oil salesman Tariq Ramadan.

Fake professor advised the state of North Rhine-Westphalia on Islam

by Manfred Rouhs

The Ministry of Education of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia is separating itself from a (possibly only supposed) humanities scholar who advised the authority on Islamic matters for more than ten years. This is what Die Welt reports. The report states that the man “apparently built his professional career partly on false information.” The vernacular speaks of impostors in cases of this type.

The long-standing government advisor was responsible for, among other things, Islamic religious instruction in the most populous federal state, and prefixed his name with “Prof. Dr.” Photos show him with important politicians such as the former Federal Presidents Christian Wulff and Horst Köhler, whose image of Islam he apparently helped to shape.

Too bad that nobody knows on which university he’s a professor at. And a dissertation written by him could not even be found by the editors of Die Welt. The termination of his contract with the Düsseldorf Ministry allows the assumption that the Islam scholar’s curriculum vitae, which was submitted more than a decade ago when he was hired, may have been incorrect in some details.

Obviously, an academic career at Central European universities is not necessary to successfully advise a Federal Republican ministry for more than ten years on matters of Islam and, in particular, Islamic religious instruction. What is important for such activities is rather the ability of the advisor to listen carefully and to be able to find out what the decision-makers to be advised want to hear: Islam is good. Islam is harmless. You really don’t have to have studied to be able to tell this…

Name the Problem!

Last week I reported on the Italian television presenter Giuseppe Cruciani, who lambasted the Left on his program for its refusal to identify Islam as the ideology behind incidents of “honor violence” such as the murder of Saman Abbas.

Guido Reil is a member of the European Parliament for the AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany). In the following video clip from the floor of the EP, Mr. Reil emphasizes the importance of naming the source of slavery and violence in Bangladesh.

And what do you think that source might be? Any ideas?

Hostility to Israel in the Swedish Church

Intellectuals in Scandinavia have long aligned themselves with Hamas and the Palestinians against the state of Israel. The luminaries of the Swedish Church (Svenska kyrkan) are no exception, and the animosity against Israel has ratcheted up in recent years.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Swedish blog Ledarsidorna:

How hostility to Israel rose up in the churches

Gunnar Hyltén-Cavallius has read Johan Sundeen’s report of the opinions hostile to Israel within, among other organizations, the Swedish Church. Hyltén-Cavallius concludes that in order to understand how the earlier friendly attitude to the State of Israel could change to one directly hostile, Sundeen’s report constitutes an inevitable fundamental building block.

In recent times anti-Semitism has been debated more and more. Investigations point out the Jews in our country are living with increasing insecurity, especially the situation in Malmö, which has received special attention.

Recently a scientific report has been published whose focus is a previously strong feeling of friendship for Israel, which has come to be replaced by pronounced criticism. The Ecumenical Clapham Institute has an ongoing research project within the framework “Israel and Faith Communities”. Johan Sundeen, professor of history of ideas, has now issued the project’s first report: “When theology became 68 ideology. Establishment of a hostile opinion (against) Israel within Swedish Christianity, 1967-1982.”

The dust jacket drawing speaks its own language: A Swedish bishop, in full vestment, holds the Palestinian flag like a crosier. He sticks an Israeli flag down behind him (in the sand, the snow?)

For years ago, when Sundeen published his ground-breaking study “68-Church”, he focused less on the complex problem of Israel and Palestinians. One reason for this was that the book would have been more extensive. Perhaps, this deficiency was for the good, for now, Sundeen has been able to return and examine this many-faceted and controversial question.

The preface is by Annika Borg, Doctor of Theology and a priest. She believes that research that investigates and exposes the imaginary worlds that give rise to and spread anti-Semitic ideas is not just a scientific task, but is “crucial for the development of society” as well.

In the introduction Sundeen refers to a debate in Expressen during the late summer of 2020 when the Swedish Church’s relationship with Islamist organizations was discussed. The columnist Susanna Birgersson had pointed out that many churches “designate Israel as the world’s villain, among them, the Swedish Church”. This was quickly denied by the Church’s headquarters in Uppsala. The Israeli ambassador Ilan Ben Dov claimed in a subsequent post that the policy of the Swedish Church toward Israel often seemed “more polarizing than that which has its origin in the Arab world.” (Expressen August 30 2020, September 1 2020, and September 9 2020).

Update on the Case of Denny Abrahamsson

Just before the “pandemic” began last year I posted about the “hate speech” case against a Swede named Denny Abrahamsson, who had been prosecuted for hets mot folkgrupp (“agitation against an ethnic group”) for saying things about Islam on social media that Muslims might find offensive. Since then his case has gone all the way to Sweden’s Supreme Court, which ruled against him.

Mr. Abrahamsson sent me the following open letter to warn the world that Sweden is in big trouble:

In Sweden we have a law about agitation against ethnic groups from 1948. The original purpose was to stop anti-Semitism. It was also meant to protect homosexuals and other minority groups, so the law was very justified.

In the year 1999 the Swedish Social Democrats made a secret agreement with Islamic groups with ties to Muslim Brotherhood to replace lost support from the Swedish working class with votes from Muslim immigrants. To get these votes they promised to give Muslims positions in municipalities, county councils and parliament. After that this law more or less became a sharia law used to stop criticism of Islam, and the judiciary have become very left-leaning. Many Muslim rapists and gang members get very soft sentences and very few of them get deported even if they don’t have citizenship.

There is also a group called “Online Hate Reviewers” who scan social media for “racial” comments about immigrants published mostly by retired people. Swedish people are very scared of being labelled racists, as they can lose their jobs and friends, so young people are mostly quiet.

The reviewers’ group gets taxpayers money from the government, and 2017 I was reported by a snitch after comments I made in a closed Facebook group calling Islam a fascist ideology and Mohammed a pedophile. In Sweden Islam is regarded as an ethnic group, but I was lucky and was acquitted. So the prosecutor appealed in the Court of Appeals, and I won again.

Shortly thereafter the same snitch reported me again for other comments on Facebook. The odd thing is I made these comments in another country, but if its directed at a Swedish audience, it falls under Swedish law even if you write it in a closed group who share the same opinions. This time, in June 2018, I was questioned by a Turkish woman who I suspected was a Muslim, but she refused to answer when I asked. It was a very unfriendly hearing, and she had also spent very much time going through my Facebook account mapping my children with names and pictures. My youngest son was very upset that this was open information for anybody to look into. Two years ago my account on Facebook was closed after I received many strikes about my comments.

The trial was set for the end of January 2020, but since I was being treated for blood clots in my lungs and left leg I asked if they could move it to June when I was planning to visit my family. I even sent a letter from a Thai doctor who dissuaded me from flying 11 hours, but the court didn’t listen to that, and I received a fine of €400 for not showing up. The next trial was set for the middle of September, as there were many problems with Covid. I booked a flight with Finnair that got cancelled for the same reason. I therefore agreed that my lawyer could represent me in my absence.

This time I was convicted and my crime was considered so bad that they wanted to jail me, but they considered my old age and gave me a heavy fine instead. The fine is set in proportion to your income, but they looked at the year 2015 when my income was three times higher than it is today. I have a pension of only €1,200 per month and my fine was €2,000 instead of the normal €600. When you lose you also have to pay your lawyer, and he cost €1,850.

Just Say It!

Giuseppe Cruciani is an Italian television presenter who is known for being provocative and confrontational. The following video is an excerpt from a longer TV program, in which Mr. Cruciani rails against the reluctance of the progressives to identify “honor” violence as an Islamic phenomenon. He specifically refers to the recent case of Saman Abbas, who was allegedly killed by her family for refusing to marry her cousin.

Knife Art in Greven

Those pesky culture-enriching knives are at it again, this time in a migrant facility in Greven in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from PolitikStube:

Afghan knife artist strikes in the refugee home — one dead

A 35-year-old was murdered in a brutal knife attack in a refugee shelter. The perpetrator, an Afghan, is said to have shouted “Allahu Akhbar” shortly before the crime.

A knife murder occurred in a refugee accommodation in Greven in the German North Rhine-Westphalia, in which one person was killed and another was seriously injured. The victim is a 35-year-old resident who, according to the police, comes from Azerbaijan; a 43-year-old German suffered serious injuries, as the public prosecutor and police reported on Monday morning.

The alleged perpetrator is said to be a 25-year-old Afghan who came to Germany in 2015 and had lived in the refugee facility since the beginning of 2018. The senior public prosecutor responsible for the case is quoted as saying: “He may have been under the influence of alcohol and drugs at the time of the crime.”

The alleged perpetrator is said to have fled after the knife attack. In the course of the search, in which a helicopter is said to have been used, the man was finally located in a field and arrested without resistance. Many questions about the motive and the course of events are still open. According to Bild, witnesses report that the attacker may have shouted “Allahu Akhbar” before the crime.

The Jihad to Join German Public TV?

The Socialists and the Greens in Hamburg want to bring Islamic zealots into the supervisory council for German public television. Bear in mind that this is hardly a marginal position: the Greens will almost certainly be part of the new government when Angela Merkel’s party (“The Union”, CDU/CSU) collapses after the next general election.

Resolution in Hamburg: SPD [Socialists] and Greens want to bring Islamists into NDR broadcasting council

by Björn Stritzel

You spread anti-Semitic and Islamist agitation — and now representatives of these associations are supposed to control the television program of the NDR [Norddeutscher Rundfunk, Northern German Broadcasting]?

The government parliamentary groups SPD and Greens have submitted an application to the Hamburg parliament calling for the “NDR Broadcasting Council to be geared even more closely to the diversity of society”. The application states that the city of Hamburg has already committed itself in contracts with the DITIB regional association Hamburg and the Shura to “work in negotiations on the state media contracts to ensure that these religious communities are represented accordingly on supervisory boards such as the NDR broadcasting council.”

The Broadcasting Council is the highest supervisory body of North German Broadcasting. Here, of all places, are Islamists supposed to move in?

Ditib, the Turkish-Islamic Union of the Institute for Religion [Turkish: Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı; German: Türkisch-Islamische Union der Anstalt für Religion], is subordinate to the Turkish religious authority Diyanet. Their representatives repeatedly attract attention with anti-Semitic attacks: The Diyanet recently tweeted while Hamas terrorized Israeli civilians with rockets: “The baby killer Israel must be stopped as soon as possible.” The “Islamic Center Hamburg” (IZH) is also represented in the Shura, the “Council of Islamic Communities in Hamburg”. According to the Hamburg Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the IZH is an important institution of the Iranian mullah regime. “The position of the head of the IZH is traditionally occupied by a supporter of the Iranian state doctrine and the Islamic revolutionary goals. He is considered the representative of the revolutionary leader Khamenei in Europe.”

Mohammad Hadi Mofateh (55), the current head, is, according to the intelligence agencies, a “well-trained representative of the current regime in Tehran” who served in the terrorist revolutionary guards. While IZH officials used to support the anti-Semitic Quds March, which called for the destruction of Israel, it was canceled last year due to the corona situation. Instead, according to the Protection of the Constitution, a “Shiite extremist with close ties to the IZH” held an online event on Quds Day. The LfV Hamburg has been reporting on the IZH for three decades because of “the knowledge about efforts against the free democratic basic order”. And such Islamists should now control the broadcasting council of the NDR?

We Are Afraid!

As a counterpoint to my post from earlier today about Würzburg, the video below features a persistent geezer who keeps obtruding himself on camera behind a TV reporter who is in the midst of uttering platitudes — “that the events not lead to division among people”, etc. — about last week’s jihad attack in Würzburg.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The following description (also translated by MissPiggy) accompanies the video at Politically Incorrect:

During a live broadcast of the Tagesschau on Sunday, a citizen of Würzburg did not miss the opportunity to voice his protest against the conditions in his city and the appeasing reporting of the media — in this case the BR [Bayerische Rundfunk, Bavarian public TV] reporter Alexander von Ammon — in front of the Würzburg Cathedral, on the knife murders by the Somali.

“We are afraid, we are afraid,” the elderly gentleman shouts again and again in front of the running camera and does not let himself be stopped even by passersby who act as law enforcement and want to push him out of the picture. Even though the older gentleman comes across as a bit crotchety, he says forthrightly what many are thinking. Every week about 50 knife attacks are recorded, but they get no attention from the mainstream.

Not every knife attack ends fatally; often it is “only” a threat. And yet this should be enough to warrant that people’s fears be taken seriously. Würzburg has shown in a dramatic way: Anyone can become the victim of such an attack, and anyone without exception.
