Muslim father burns Christian daughter alive

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Anyone care to defend the ‘religion of peace’ on this one?

A Muslim father cut out his daughter’s tongue and lit her on fire upon learning that she had become a Christian.

The child became curious about Jesus Christ after she read Christian material online, the Gulf News reported.

Her father read her Internet conversation, detached her tongue and burned her to death “following a heated debate on religion,” according to an International Christian Concern report.

The Muslim man lives in Saudi Arabia and is employed by the muwateen, or Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice. The muwateen are police tasked by the government with enforcing religious purity. The man has been taken into custody, and his identity has not been released.
According to the report, Saudi Arabia’s school curriculums and teachers deliberately instill hatred toward Christians and followers of non-Muslim religions.

The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom issued a press release stating that textbooks at the Saudi Arabian government school in Northern Virginia teach, “It is permissible for a Muslim to kill an apostate (a convert from Islam).”

The ICC claims Saudi Arabian authorities have begun exporting Wahabbism – a version of Islam that is said to be least tolerant toward non-Muslims – to other nations including the U.S.

Saudi oil money is said to be used to encourage countries such as Ethiopia and Indonesia to kill Christians and destroy their possessions.

ICC president Jeff King said, “Saudi Arabia has to treat Christians with the same respect that it wants Muslims to be treated in other countries. It has to stop exporting hate and persecution against Christians in other countries.”

Random House Caves to Muslim Pressure

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

One more step down the road to Dhimmitude.

The publisher Random House has decided not to move forward with plans to publish The Jewel of Medina, a debut novel by journalist Sherry Jones which traces the life of Mohammed’s child bride A’isha from her engagement to the Islamic founder at age six, to his death.

According to Reuters, a Random House spokesman said the company received “cautionary advice” that publication of the book might be offensive to some Muslims and that it could incite “acts of violence by a small, radical segment.”

Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch, argues that the publisher’s reaction is just another sign of the Western world’s loss of will. “The West seems to be willing [to give in] instead of saying ‘No, we’re not going to be intimidated by violence, we’re not going to kowtow, we’re going to do what we believe to be right, and we’re going to defend ourselves,'” he contends. But the mere threat of violence, says Spencer — “in this case just the possible threat of violence, no actual threats at all” — seem to be enough for Random House.

According to Spencer, the novel itself is a whitewash of the reality of the record of the marriage of Mohammed to the child. “It portrays A’shia, the nine-year-old girl, as being very happy with the marriage to the 54-year-old Mohammed,” he continues. “Maybe she was, but there is a moral problem here — and that is that child marriage has become very common in some areas of the Islamic world in imitation of Mohammed.”
