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.

Many thanks to LN for translating this article from the Swedish alternative news site Samhällsnytt:

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.

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?

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.

The Destruction of Louis Duxbury

Louis Duxbury was a university student in the UK at the time of the London Bridge terrorist attack in June of 2017. His girlfriend was in the area of the attack that day, and he was unable to make contact with her (it later turned out that she was OK). Frantic with worry, he recorded a video rant against Muslim extremists and uploaded it to Facebook. If he had not been so worried about his girlfriend, he might have been more prudent in his choice of words — everyone in Britain is well aware of what can happen to ordinary citizens who say unkind things about Muslims and the Religion of Peace.

Mr. Duxbury was subsequently tried and convicted for his thoughtcrime, and served time in prison. Now, via the labyrinthine machinations of Her Majesty’s justice system, he is facing re-sentencing tomorrow, and may spend yet more time in durance vile.

In the extensive interview below Louis Duxbury explains what happened to him, and what he is likely to be facing. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for conducting the interview and uploading the video:

Below is the introduction to a post about Mr. Duxbury’s case at Crime Bodge:

Persecution and Prosecution of Louis Duxbury

by Rob Warner
June 16, 2021

In November 2019 Louis Duxbury, a 22 year old university student from York, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for ‘inciting religious hatred’ under section 29E of the Public Order Act 1986. The prosecution was brought as a result of a 17 minute monologue that Duxbury uploaded to Facebook.

I can’t show you the video because the police, the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts have effectively outlawed it as religious blasphemy. They don’t call it that of course. The preferred neologism is ‘inciting religious hatred’.

In my opinion the most offensive thing about the monologue is how boring it was. Not a single part of it could be described as a call to arms. It was an expletive riddled, unrehearsed and unsophisticated rant about muslim extremists. Duxbury knew what he was saying was likely to be regarded as offensive and bigoted, and that it could arouse the attention of the thought police, who spend more time patrolling social media than they do the streets. But being an offensive, bigot is not a crime. Nor is spouting hate. And I feel duty bound to defend his right to be an offensive, bigot. The state sees it otherwise. Regardless of whether you think Duxbury deserved to be punished for what he said — and that’s all this is about what he said, and not something he did — there is nothing that justifies the massively disproportionate penalty he has paid for his recklessness.

Women Under the Islamic State

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from EW Magazine. The translator includes this introductory note:

This article was written by a Turkish woman who has earned the wrath of her community by criticizing Islam. Here she writes about the way the Netherlands is repatriating ISIS women from the Middle East while Yazidi and Kurdish women suffer. Her words are probably causing another stir in the Turkish community.

The translated article:

Lale Gül: The Netherlands Gives Yazidi women a kick

Women who left to the ISIS Caliphate are welcomed back to the Netherlands together with their children. While the victims of the ISIS atrocities, such as the Yazidis and Kurds, look on with sorrowful eyes. Imagine that, argues writer Lale Gül, in an article for EW Podium.

Just imagine: You are not Dutch, but a Yazidi woman, a member of a small religious minority in the Sinjar region in NW Iraq. Five years ago, your habitat was overrun by the Islamic State; your community was enslaved, gagged, subjugated, and humiliated. Fathers, brothers and sons were beheaded in cold blood before your eyes and those of other women. Their bodies rot away in 73 mass graves in the area. Daughters, sisters, and mothers, such as yourself are either raped, or turned into slaves, or both.

Raped women bear children begotten by ISIS terrorists

As a result, you, the raped women together, after years-long mistreatment, bear children begotten by the ISIS terrorists that you have not since seen. Pretty gruesome, isn’t it?

The trauma is not yet over: Then you have to leave your children behind en masse in a camp that you will never visit again because, at the same time, they are also children of the enemy whom the clergy of your community will not accept. If you don’t leave them behind in one or another miserable orphanage, you are no, longer welcome. It is believed in your village that a child by birth automatically has the religion of the father and who is in this case a (rather extreme) Muslim: That is not allowed. After leaving the child, see how your conscience is soothed.

Moreover, half of the women from your community can no longer be found.

Or imagine that you are not a Yazidi woman, but a Kurd. One with a deceased brother, father or son, murdered by an ISIS terrorist.

According to Yazidi women, ISIS women are worse than their men

Now imagine that the women from the Netherlands who, as spouses of this beastly system, eagerly and willingly facilitated these inhumane conditions, were themselves worse than the male terrorists, to which many Yazidi women have testified to Dutch journalists. Imagine that you read and hear that these same women want to return to Europe, now that they have lost the war and are calling on the Netherlands to at least give their children a future.

A French Lesbian Foresees Her Death

I’ve reported previously (most recently here) on Mila, a lesbian high school student in France who upset Muslims by saying things about Islam that were true, but did not reflect well on Muslims. She was doxxed, inundated with death threats, and forced to withdraw from school. Since then she has lived under police protection.

In the following video Mila reflects on her current circumstances, and discusses the likelihood that she will face dismemberment and/or death for disrespecting the Religion of Peace.

Silvia Sardone: “Belgium is Already a Lost Country”

A couple of days ago I posted a video from Silvia Sardone, an Italian MEP for the Lega, talking about the enormous mosque being built in Strasbourg with funding from the city government. In the following video Ms. Sardone visits the other “capital of Europe”, Brussels, to discuss the recent conviction of four members of the Flemish nationalist group Voorpost. The four men were given six-month prison sentences for displaying a banner with the words “Stop Islamization” above stylized figures clad in niqabs.

The Honor Killing of Saman Abbas

Earlier this month I posted about the presumed honor killing of a Pakistani girl in Italy by members of her extended family. The body of Saman Abbas has yet to be found, but her parents have decamped to Pakistan without her, and her little brother has told the authorities that she was killed for refusing an arranged marriage with a cousin.

Below is a video update on the case from Italian television. Many thanks to Gary Fouse for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The following article from Il Giornale (also translated by Gary Fouse) reports on Saman’s cousin Ikram Ijaz, who is now in police custody:

Saman’s cousin knows everything and remains silent: “I will talk in the future…”

In jail, Ikram Ijaz is not responding to GIP [Giudice di Indagine Preliminare, Preliminary Investigations Judge]: “Nothing to do with the end of my cousin”

by Nino Materi
June 12, 2021

After so many hours spent with his two lawyers to “fine-tune the defense strategy”, here is the result: “I avail myself of the right not to respond.” Ikram Ijaz, 28, a cousin of Saman Abbas, yesterday passed the translated sentence to the interpreter who relayed it to GIP and to the prosecutor who are investigating the disappearance of the 18-year-old Pakistani, killed by a family conspiracy and made to disappear who knows where. For about six weeks her body has been searched for in the fields around the agriculture business “Le Valli” in Novellara (Reggio-Emilia) where the Abbas family lived and where the young girl was seen for the last time April 29.

Yesterday was supposed to be the day of truth; it was, instead, the day of silence. The 28-year-old is accused of premeditated homicide (with others) and hiding a cadaver together with the uncle, Danish Hasnain (suspected of strangling Saman), along with another cousin, Nomanulhaq Nomanulhaq, and the parents of the victim: the father, Shabbar Abbas, and the mother, Nazia Shaheen. All four are fugitives. (The parents have fled to Pakistan, the other two are in flight in Europe.) Ikram Ijaz, the only one of those charged who is in jail, is one of the three who was captured by a security telecamera on April 30 as they walked away from the Abbas farmhouse carrying a shovel, crowbar, bucket, and plastic bags. The prosecutorial hypothesis is that the three (Ijaz, the other cousin, and the uncle) were going to bury the remains of Saman. A reconstruction of which Ijaz yesterday laconically distanced himself saying that he “had nothing to do with Saman’s disappearance”. But then what was he doing in that film? Why did he then flee to France? Two key questions that Ijaz would have been able to answer, dispelling any doubt about his involvement in a crime hatched by the same parents of Saman to punish their daughter, who was “guilty” of not having accepted an “arranged marriage” and of not comporting herself as a “good Muslim”. Instead, Ijaz — arrested on May 29 in France and extradited to Italy last week — when face-to-face with investigators in the Reggio Emilia jail did not respond to questions while pointing out that he was “willing to cooperate”. His lawyers note: “He has shown the intention of making more in-depth statements to the prosecutor in the coming days.” Then why not begin doing so immediately? The dilatory technique is a classic of the defense to understand what the prosecution has in hand: stalling is considered by defendants as an almost obligatory strategy. Still, in this case, the evidentiary picture is quite defined, and to crystallize it completely, only the discovery of the body of Saman is missing. (But that is not a small detail.).But this sentence, terrible, spoken by one of those charged — “We have done a good job” — is there to demonstrate how difficult it will be to recover the remains of the girl. Up until now, cadaver dogs and georadar have not obtained the hoped-for result. It is not excluded that the cadaver could have been dismembered into several parts and hidden in various places.

Meanwhile, the lawyers of the only charged person in jail (the parents of Saman have fled to Pakistan, while the uncle and the other cousin of the victim are fugitives in another country) maintain that their client “does not understand Italian well,” and therefore, for this reason, the time of “cooperation” risks “becoming longer”. The feeling instead is that Ijaz knows a lot — if not everything — about the sad fate of Saman. But that he has decided, at least for now, to keep his mouth shut. Perhaps out of fear of revenge. Perhaps because he wants “guarantees”. Or perhaps, more simply, because he has no conscience.

Another article from Il Giornale (also translated by Gary Fouse) discusses the reluctance of Italian politicians to mention JIM:

Vlaams Belang: Protect Our Flemish Identity

Last week I reported that four members of the Flemish “right-wing extremist” group Voorpost had been sentenced to six months in prison for carrying a banner that read “Stop Islamization” (“Stop Islamisering”) at a demonstration. I mentioned the fact that Filip Dewinter, the leader of Vlaams Belang, had carried banners on multiple occasions that featured the same slogan, yet he had never been prosecuted.

This week I dug back into the archives and found the photo shown at the top of this post. I took it in October of 2007, at an event in Antwerp sponsored by Vlaams Belang that featured Filip Dewinter and Robert Spencer as speakers. Almost fourteen years later Mr. Dewinter is still a free man, never having served any time in the slammer for displaying that “hateful” sign.

The following video reports on a demonstration in which members of Vlaams Belang protested the verdict and the sentences against the four men from Voorpost. Filip Dewinter can be seen in the video, showing a lot more grey in his hair than he had that night in Antwerp fourteen years ago.
