As Muslims around the world continue to deny basic human rights to women and non-Muslims, Muslim spokesmen maintain a pattern of lies, denial and deception. Here's a few recent examples:
Sakineh Ashtiani, a 43 year old Iranian woman, is facing death by stoning for adultery, a capital crime in "medieval" Iran. Yet, when human rights activist, David G. Littman, asserted at the U.N. Human Rights Council last year that "stoning of women for alleged adultery still occurs regularly in Iran." Iran's spokesman declared that this was "not true, it is completely false and is out of the question!" Sakineh would beg to differ and she's not the only one, at least 45 other women are waiting for the same fate in Iran right now.
Meanwhile, in Indonesia last month, Christians in the city of Bekasi are facing an escalating persecution from Muslim idiots. According to Asia News, "in the past six months radical Islamic groups have interrupted Christian religious services, prevented Christians from entering their churches and blocked the building of a new church." This is in accord with traditional Islamic law for non-Muslims in an Islamic state, which forbids these "subject peoples" (not fellow citizens) to build new houses of worship or repair old ones. Yet it was with a straight face that Imam Hassan Qazwini of the Islamic Center in America restated a very common assertion of Muslim spokesmen in the West: "Most westerners do not know that Islam respects Christians and Jews." It seems that too many Muslims in Indonesia don't seem to know it either.
Now here's a shocker! Three weeks ago, Afshan Azad (see photo), the 21 year old actress who first appeared in the Harry Potter movie, "The Goblet of Fire" in 2005 as the character Padma Patil and has been in three more Potter films since then, fled from her home in Manchester after being beaten and badly bruised by her father and brother, both Muslim-scum, for refusing to break up with her boyfriend, a Hindu. Muslims traditionally hate Hindus more that than Christians or Jews...go figure. Islamic law forbids Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men (another intolerant idea from Mohammad), and Abdul Azad and his son, Ashraf were allegedly willing to murder Afshan for daring to flout this prohibition.
Muslim spokesmen routinely deny that honor killing has anything to do with Islam, even though over 90% of these killings take place in Muslim countries. Many of these countries have relaxed penalties for honor murders and Islamic law stipulates no penalty for a parent who kills his child. Here again, Afshan might beg to differ with the prevailing denials and evasions of responsibility by these Muslim spokesmen. While it may be unpleasant for Afshan if criminal proceedings against her father and brother continue, it would be disastrous for it to be dropped.
The Way I See It....for the denial about the tolerance for honor killing in Muslim communities in the West only ensures that more Muslim girls will be murdered. And the larger denial by Muslim spokesmen when confronted with atrocities that have been explicitly perpetrated in the name of Islam and justified by reference to Islamic texts and teachings only ensures that such atrocities will continue. It's time the western media get tough and expose these liars!
