A Call to the Muslims of the World from a Group of Freethinkers and Humanists of Muslim Origins

Dear friends,

The tragic incidents of September 11 have shocked the world. It is unthinkable that anyone could be so full of hate as to commit such heinous acts and kill so many innocent people. We people of Muslim origin are as much shaken as the rest of the world and yet we find ourselves looked upon with suspicion and distrust by our neighbours and fellow citizens. We want to cry out and tell the world that we are not terrorists, and that those who perpetrate such despicable acts are murderers and not part of us. But, in reality, because of our Muslim origins we just cannot erase the stigma of Islamic Terrorism from our identity!

What most Muslims will say:

Islam would never support the killing of innocent people. Allah of the Holy Qur'an never advocated killings. This is all the work of a few misguided individuals at the fringes of society. The real Islam is sanctified from violence. We denounce all violence. Islam means peace. Islam means tolerance.

What knowledgeable Muslims should say:

That is what most Muslims think, but is it true? Does Islam really preach peace, tolerance and non-violence? The Muslims who perpetrate these crimes think differently. They believe that what they do is Jihad (holy war). They say that killing unbelievers is mandatory for every Muslim. They do not kill because they wish to break the laws of Islam but because they think this is what true Muslims should do. Those who blow-up their own bodies to kill more innocent people do so because they think they will be rewarded in Paradise. They hope to be blessed by Allah, eat celestial food, drink pure wine and enjoy the company of divine consorts. Are they completely misguided? Where did they get this distorted idea? How did they come to believe that killing innocent people pleases God? Or is it that we are misguided? Does really Islam preach violence? Does it call upon its believers to kill non-believers? We denounce those who commit acts of violence and call them extremists. But are they really extremists or are they following what the holy book, the Qur'an tells them to do? What does the Qur'an teach? Have we read the Qur'an? Do we know what kind of teachings are there? Let us go through some of them and take a closer look at what Allah says.

What the Qur'an Teaches Us:

We have used the most widely available English text of the Qur'an and readers are welcome to verify our quotes from the holy book. Please have an open mind and read through these verses again and again. The following quotes are taken from the most trusted Yusufali's translation of the Qur'an. The Qur'an tells us: not to make friendship with Jews and Christians (5:51), kill the disbelievers wherever we find them (2:191), murder them and treat them harshly (9:123), fight and slay the Pagans, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (9:5). The Qur'an demands that we fight the unbelievers, and promises If there are twenty amongst you, you will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, you will vanquish a thousand of them (8:65). Allah and his messenger want us to fight the Christians and the Jews until they pay the Jizya [a penalty tax for the non-Muslims living under Islamic rules] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued (9:29). Allah and his messenger announce that it is acceptable to go back on our promises (treaties) and obligations with Pagans and make war on them whenever we find ourselves strong enough to do so (9:3). Our God tells us to fight the unbelievers and He will punish them by our hands, cover them with shame and help us (to victory) over them (9:14).

The Qur'an takes away the freedom of belief from all humanity and relegates those who disbelieve in Islam to hell (5:10), calls them najis (filthy, untouchable, impure) (9:28), and orders its followers to fight the unbelievers until no other religion except Islam is left (2:193). It says that the non-believers will go to hell and will drink boiling water (14:17). It asks the Muslims to slay or crucify or cut the hands and feet of the unbelievers, that they be expelled from the land with disgrace and that they shall have a great punishment in world hereafter (5:34). And tells us that for them (the unbelievers) garments of fire shall be cut and there shall be poured over their heads boiling water whereby whatever is in their bowels and skin shall be dissolved and they will be punished with hooked iron rods (22:19-22) and that they not only will have disgrace in this life, but on the Day of Judgment He shall make them taste the Penalty of burning (Fire) (22:9). The Qur'an says that those who invoke a god other than Allah not only should meet punishment in this world but the Penalty on the Day of Judgment will be doubled to them, and they will dwell therein in ignominy (25:68). For those who believe not in Allah and His Messenger, He has prepared, for those who reject Allah, a Blazing Fire! (48:13). Although we are asked to be compassionate amongst each other, we have to be harsh with unbelievers, our Christian, Jewish and Atheist neighbours and colleagues (48:29). As for him who does not believe in Islam, the Prophet announces with a stern command: Seize ye him, and bind ye him, And burn ye him in the Blazing Fire. Further, make him march in a chain, whereof the length is seventy cubits! This was he that would not believe in Allah Most High. And would not encourage the feeding of the indigent! So no friend hath he here this Day. Nor hath he any food except the corruption from the washing of wounds, Which none do eat but those in sin. (69:30-37) The Qur'an prohibits a Muslim from befriending a non-believer even if that non-believer is the father or the brother of that Muslim (9:23), (3:28). Our holy book asks us to be disobedient towards the disbelievers and their governments and strive against the unbelievers with great endeavour (25:52) and be stern with them because they belong to Hell (66:9). The holy Prophet prescribes fighting for us and tells us that it is good for us even if we dislike it (2:216). Then he advises us to strike off the heads of the disbelievers; and after making a wide slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives (47:4). Our God has promised to instil terror into the hearts of the unbelievers and has ordered us to smite above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them (8:12). He also assures us that when we kill in his name it is not us who slay them but Allah, in order that He might test the Believers by a gracious trial from Himself (8:17). He orders us to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies (8:60). He has made the Jihad mandatory and warns us that Unless we go forth, (for Jihad) He will punish us with a grievous penalty, and put others in our place (9:39). Allah speaks to our Holy Prophet and says O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern against them. Their abode is Hell - an evil refuge indeed (9:73).

He promises us that in the fight for His cause whether we slay or are slain we return to the garden of Paradise (9:111). In Paradise he will wed us with Houris (celestial virgins) pure beautiful ones (56:54), and unite us with large-eyed beautiful ones while we recline on our thrones set in lines (56:20). There we are promised to eat and drink pleasantly for what we did (56:19). He also promises boys like hidden pearls (56:24) and youth never altering in age like scattered pearls (for those who have paedophiliac inclinations) (76:19). As you see, Allah has promised all sorts or rewards, gluttony and unlimited sex to Muslim men who kill unbelievers in his name. We will be admitted to Paradise where we shall find goodly things, beautiful ones, pure ones confined to the pavilions that man has not touched them before nor jinni (56:67-71).In the West we enjoy freedom of belief but we are not supposed to give such freedom to anyone else because it is written If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good) (3:85). And He orders us to fight them on until there is no more tumult and faith in Allah is practiced everywhere (8:39). As for women the book of Allah says that they are inferior to men and their husbands have the right to scourge them if they are found disobedient (4:34). It advises to take a green branch and beat your wife, because a green branch is more flexible and hurts more. (38:44). It teaches that women will go to hell if they are disobedient to their husbands (66:10). It maintains that men have an advantage over the women (2:228). It not only denies the women's equal right to their inheritance (4:11-12), it also regards them as imbeciles and decrees that their witness is not admissible in the courts of law (2:282). This means that a woman who is raped cannot accuse her rapist unless she can produce a male witness. Our Holy Prophet allows us to marry up to four wives and he licensed us to sleep with our slave maids and as many 'captive' women as we may have (4:3) even if those women are already married. He himself did just that. This is why anytime a Muslim army subdues another nation, they call them kafir and allow themselves to rape their women. Pakistani soldiers allegedly raped up to 250,000 Bengali women in 1971 after they massacred 3,000,000 unarmed civilians when their religious leader decreed that Bangladeshis are un-Islamic. This is why the prison guards in Islamic regime of Iran rape the women that in their opinion are apostates prior to killing them, as they believe a virgin will not go to Hell.

Dear fellow Muslims:Is this the Islam you believe in? Is this your Most Merciful, Most Compassionate Allah whom you worship daily? Could Allah incite you to kill other peoples? Please understand that there is no terrorist gene - but there could be a terrorist mindset. That mindset finds its most fertile ground in the tenets of Islam. Denying it, and presenting Islam to the lay public as a religion of peace similar to Buddhism, is to suppress the truth. The history of Islam between the 7th and 14th centuries is riddled with violence, fratricide and wars of aggression, starting right from the death of the Prophet and during the so-called 'pure' or orthodox caliphate. And Muhammad himself hoisted the standard of killing, looting, massacres and bloodshed. How can we deny the entire history? The behaviour of our Holy Prophet as recorded in authentic Islamic sources is quite questionable from a modern viewpoint. The Prophet was a charismatic man but he had few virtues. Imitating him in all aspects of life (following the Sunnah) is both impossible and dangerous in the 21st century. Why are we so helplessly in denial over this simple issue? When the Prophet was in Mecca and he was still not powerful enough he called for tolerance. He said To you be your religion, and to me my religion (109:6). This famous quote is often misused to prove that the general principle of Qur'an is tolerance. He advised his follower to speak good to their enemies (2: 83), exhorted them to be patient (20:103) and said that there is no compulsion in religion (2:256). But that all changed drastically when he came to power. Then killing and slaying unbelievers with harshness and without mercy was justified in innumerable verses. The verses quoted to prove Islam's tolerance ignore many other verses that bear no trace of tolerance or forgiveness. Where is tolerance in this well-known verse Alarzu Lillah, Walhukmu Lillah. (The Earth belongs to Allah and thus only Allah's rule should prevail all over the earth.).Is it normal that a book revealed by God should have so many serious contradictions? The Prophet himself set the example of unleashing violence by invading the Jewish settlements, breaking treaties he had signed with them and banishing some of them after confiscating their belongings, massacring others and taking their wives and children as slaves. He inspected the youngsters and massacred all those who had pubic hair along with the men. Those who were younger he kept as slaves. He distributed the women captured in his raids among his soldiers keeping the prettiest for himself (33:50). He made sexual advances on Safiyah, a Jewish girl on the same day he captured her town Kheibar and killed her father, her husband and many of her relatives. Reyhana was another Jewish girl of Bani Quriza whom he used as a sex slave after killing all her male relatives. In the last ten years of his life he accumulated two scores of wives, concubines and sex slaves including the 9 year old Ayesha. These are not stories but records from authentic Islamic history and the Hadiths. It can be argued that this kind of behaviour was not unknown or unusual for the conquerors and leaders of the mediaeval world but these are not the activities befitting of a peaceful saint and certainly not someone who claimed to be the Mercy of God for all creation. There were known assassinations of adversaries during the Prophet's time, which he had knowledge of and had supported. Among them there was a 120 year old man, Abu 'Afak whose only crime was to compose a lyric satirical of the Prophet. (by Ibn Sa'd Kitab al Tabaqat al Kabir, Volume 2, page 32) Then when a poetess, a mother of 5 small children 'Asma' Bint Marwan wrote a poetry cursing the Arabs for letting Muhammad assassinate an old man, our Holy Prophet ordered her to be assassinated too in the middle of the night while her youngest child was suckling from her breast. (Sirat Rasul Allah (A. Guillaume's translation The Life of Muhammad) page 675, 676).The Prophet did develop a 'Robin Hood' image that justified raiding merchant caravans attacking cities and towns, killing people and looting their belongings in the name of social justice. Usama Bin Laden is also trying to create the same image. But Robin Hood didn't claim to be a prophet or a pacifist nor did he care for apologist arguments. He did not massacre innocent people indiscriminately nor did he profit by reducing free people to slaves and then trading them. With the known and documented violent legacy of Islam, how can we suddenly rediscover it as a religion of peace in the free world in the 21st century? Isn't this the perpetuation of a lie by a few ambitious leaders in order to gain political control of the huge and ignorant Muslim population? They are creating a polished version of Islam by completely ignoring history. They are propagating the same old dogma for simple believing people in a crisp new modern package. Their aim: to gain political power in today's high-tension world. They want to use the confrontational power of the original Islam to catalyse new conflicts and control new circles of power.

Dear conscientious Muslims, please question yourselves. Isn't this compulsive following of a man who lived 1400 years ago leading us to doom in a changing world? Do the followers of any other religion follow one man in such an all-encompassing way? Who are we deceiving, them or ourselves? Dear brothers and sisters, see how our Umma (people) has sunk into poverty and how it lags behind the rest of the world. Isn't it because we are following a religion that is outdated and impractical? In this crucial moment of history, when a great catastrophe has befallen us and a much bigger one is lying ahead, should not we wake up from our 1400 years of slumber and see where things have gone wrong? Hatred has filled the air and the world is bracing itself for its doomsday. Should we not ask ourselves whether we have contributed, wittingly or unwittingly, to this tragedy and whether we can stop the great disaster from happening?Unfortunately the answer to the first question is yes. Yes we have contributed to the rise of fundamentalism by merely claiming Islam is a religion of peace, by simply being a Muslim and by saying our shahada (testimony that Allah is the only God and Muhammad is his messenger). By our shahada we have recognized Muhammad as a true messenger of God and his book as the words of God. But as you saw above those words are anything but from God. They call for killing, they are prescriptions for hate and they foment intolerance. And when the ignorant among us read those hate-laden verses, they act on them and the result is the infamous September 11, human bombs in Israel, massacres in East Timor and Bangladesh, kidnappings and killings in the Philippines, slavery in the Sudan, honour killings in Pakistan and Jordan, torture in Iran, stoning and maiming in Afghanistan and Iran, violence in Algeria, terrorism in Palestine and misery and death in every Islamic country. We are responsible because we endorse Islam and hail it as a religion of God. And we are as guilty as those who put into practice what the Qur'an preaches - and ironically we are the main victims too. If we are not terrorists, if we love peace, if we cried with the rest of the word for what happened in New York, then why are we supporting the Qur'an that preaches killing, that advocates holy war, that calls for the murder of non-Muslims? It is not the extremists who have misunderstood Islam. They do literally what the Qur'an asks them to do. It is we who misunderstand Islam. We are the ones who are confused. We are the ones who wrongly assume that Islam is the religion of peace. Islam is not a religion of peace. In its so-called pure form it can very well be interpreted as a doctrine of hate. Terrorists are doing just that and we the intellectual apologists of Islam are justifying it. We can stop this madness. Yes, we can avert the disaster that is hovering over our heads. Yes, we can denounce the doctrines that promote hate. Yes, we can embrace the rest of humanity with love. Yes, we can become part of a united world, members of one human family, flowers of one garden. We can dump the claim of infallibility of our Book, and the questionable legacy of our Prophet.Dear friends, there is no time to waste. Let us put an end to this lie. Let us not fool ourselves. Islam is not a religion of peace, of tolerance, of equality or of unity of humankind. Let us read the Qur'an. Let us face the truth even if it is painful. As long as we keep this lie alive, as long as we hide our head in the sands of Arabia we are feeding terrorism. As long as you and I keep calling Qur'an the unchangeable book of God, we cannot blame those who follow the teachings therein. As long as we pay our Khums and Zakat our money goes to promote Islamic expansionism and that means terrorism, Jihad and war. Islam divides the world in two. Darul Harb (land of war) and Darul Islam (land of Islam). Darul Harb is the land of the infidels, Muslims are required to infiltrate those lands, proselytise and procreate until their numbers increase and then start the war and fight and kill the people and impose the religion of Islam on them and convert that land into Darul Islam. In all fairness we denounce this betrayal. This is abuse of the trust. How can we make war in the countries that have sheltered us? How can we kill those who have befriended us? Yet willingly or unwillingly we have become pawns in this Islamic Imperialism. Let us see what great Islamic scholars have had to say in this respect.Dr. M. Khan the translator of Sahih Bukhari and the Qur'an into English wrote: Allah revealed in Sura Bara'at (Repentance, IX) the order to discard (all) obligations (covenants, etc), and commanded the Muslims to fight against all the Pagans as well as against the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) if they do not embrace Islam, till they pay the Jizia (a tax levied on the Jews and Christians) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued (as it is revealed in 9:29). So the Muslims were not permitted to abandon the fighting against them (Pagans, Jews and Christians) and to reconcile with them and to suspend hostilities against them for an unlimited period while they are strong and have the ability to fight against them. So at first the fighting was forbidden, then it was permitted, and after that it was made obligatory [Introduction to English translation of Sahih Bukhari, p.xxiv.] Dr. Sobhy as-Saleh, a contemporary Islamic academician quoted Imam Suyuti the author of Itqan Fi 'Ulum al- Qur'an who wrote: The command to fight the infidels was delayed until the Muslims become strong, but when they were weak they were commanded to endure and be patient. [ Sobhy as_Saleh, Mabaheth Fi 'Ulum al- Qur'an, Dar al-'Ilm Lel-Malayeen, Beirut, 1983, p. 269.]Dr. Sobhy, in a footnote, commends the opinion of a scholar named Zarkashi who said: Allah the most high and wise revealed to Mohammad in his weak condition what suited the situation, because of his mercy to him and his followers. For if He gave them the command to fight while they were weak it would have been embarrassing and most difficult, but when the most high made Islam victorious He commanded him with what suited the situation, that is asking the people of the Book to become Muslims or to pay the levied tax, and the infidels to become Muslims or face death. These two options, to fight or to have peace return according to the strength or the weakness of the Muslims. [ibid p. 270]Other Islamic scholars (Ibn Hazm al-Andalusi, Ga'far ar-Razi, Rabi' Ibn 'Ons, 'Abil-'Aliyah, Abd ar-Rahman Ibn Zayd Ibn 'Aslam, etc.) agree that the verse Slay the idolaters wherever you find them (9:5) cancelled those few earlier verses that called for tolerance in the Qur'an and were revealed when Islam was weak. Can you still say that Islam is the religion of peace? We propose a solution.

We know too well that it is not easy to denounce our faith because it means denouncing a part of ourselves. We are a group of freethinkers and humanists with Islamic roots. Discovering the truth and leaving the religion of our fathers and forefathers was a painful experience. But after learning what Islam stands for we had no choice but to leave it. After becoming familiar with the Qur'an the choice became clear: It is either Islam or humanity. If Islam thrives, then humanity will die. We decided to side with humanity. Culturally we are still Muslims but we no longer believe in Islam as the true religion of God. We are humanists. We love humanity. We work for the unity of humankind. We work for equality between men and women. We strive for the secularisation of Islamic countries, for democracy and freedom of thought, belief and expression. We decided to live no longer in self-deception but to embrace humanity, and to enter into the new millennium hand in hand with people of other cultures and beliefs in amity and in peace.We denounce the violence that is eulogized in the Qur'an as holy war (Jihad). We condemn killing in the name of God. We believe in the sanctity of human life, not in the inviolability of beliefs and religions. We invite you to join us and the rest of humanity and become part of the family of humankind - in love, camaraderie and peace.

Nice Iraqi boy beats 14 year old girl to death with a hammer:

Lithuanian-born Viktorija was brutally beaten, raped and dumped on a park bench in Wolverhampton during a frenzied attack last April.

The killer, who cannot be named for legal reasons but was born in Holland to parents from Iraq, denied any wrongdoing during the three week trial at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Despite his pleas, he was unanimously convicted by a jury and finally sentenced today.

If his parents had not been imported to cut wages for Europeans, that girl would not be dead.

There were rapes in this region before non-European mass immigration, of course, but not nearly as many as now. In addition to sheer numbers, the brutality has gotten worse, sometimes involving sadistic torture. Gang rapes used to be exceedingly rare in Scandinavia, but sadly, this is no longer the case. As we have just seen above, the number of rapes involving minors and children has also shown a shocking increase.

The number of rapes is directly proportional to the number of Muslims imported:

An Afghan man suspected of stabbing two American tourists last year at Amsterdam's Central Station has told judges he travelled to the Netherlands 'to protect the Prophet Mohammed'.

Jawed Santani, 20, appeared at a two-day hearing in a heavily fortified courtroom in Amsterdam, where he faces two attempted murder charges with the aim of committing an act of terror.

'I came to the Netherlands to protect my prophet,' he told the judges in reference to the August 31 incident last year that sent midday commuters into a panic and left two severely injured victims.

'I was planning to kill unfair and cruel people, those who make it possible for the Prophet Mohammed to be insulted,' national news agency ANP quoted him as saying.

Just another Muslim following the example of the terrorist Mohammed, who also murdered anyone who dared to criticize his robberies, rapes, murder, and pedophilia, all of which is explicitly and lovingly documented in the Koran and Hadith.

Islam is the opposite of freedom of speech, and therefore believing Muslims do not belong in the West at all. The success of the West is due to free speech above all else.

An Iraqi asylum seeker has been jailed for at least two-and-a-half years after he kidnapped and assaulted a three-year-old girl at a Sydney shopping centre a week before Christmas in 2016.

Mohammad Hassan Al Bayati was working as a security guard at DFO Homebush when he entered the instore playground and took the little girl by the hand. Al Bayati then walked her down a fire exit to an area that was not under surveillance.

According to 7 News: “A NSW District Court jury found Al Bayati exposed his penis and touched the girl’s underwear during 11 minutes away from surveillance cameras.”

When Al Bayati eventually returned the girl to the playground, he criticized the child’s panicked mother for leaving her daughter alone and warned her of the potential dangers and risks.

Judge John Pickering said: “The gall of the offender to lecture the mother about the dangers and risks of leaving her child in a play area, when he ended up being the greatest risk, is one of the most curious parts of this matter.”

The three-year-old’s parents only became aware of the assault later that day when the girl told her father that Al Bayati showed her his “needle” and “tried to kiss my bum bum.”

Police also found Al Bayati’s DNA on the girl’s underwear.

In the ruling, the judge reportedly took into consideration the fact that Al Bayati had a traumatic upbringing as an Iraqi asylum seeker and almost died on a sinking boat on his way to Australia.

A teenager has died and at least nine others are injured after a knifeman went on a stabbing spree in the French city of Lyon this afternoon.

Sultan Marmed Niazi, armed with a kitchen knife and metal spit, carried out the attack outside the Laurent-Bonnevay metro station in the city's Villeurbanne region.

The 33-year-old, who is thought to be an Afghan immigrant, lunged at innocent bystanders waiting at a bus stop outside the station in broad daylight.

Of those injured three are believed to have been seriously wounded, while six suffered minor injuries.

The one fatality was a 19-year-old man waiting on a bus to a music festival on the outskirts of Lyon.

A mechanic was arrested and charged with sabotage Thursday after he tampered with a commercial plane’s hardware shortly before it was set to take off from Miami International Airport with more than 100 people on board.

The American Airlines flight, destined for Nassau in the Bahamas, did not depart as scheduled on July 17 and was eventually canceled when crews noticed an error related to the “air data module,” which tracks speed, nose direction and other critical flight information, according to court documents.

Mechanics inspecting the plane “discovered a loosely connected pilot tube, which connects directly to the ADM” and concluded that it “appeared to have been deliberately obstructed with what appeared to be a dark Styrofoam-type material.”

American Airlines said the flight was returned to the gate for maintenance and that all passengers were put on a different plane. No one was hurt in the incident.

Authorities used surveillance video to identify Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani as the saboteur. Officers arrested Alani on Thursday and he confessed to tampering with the plane’s critical hardware but denied he intended to hurt anyone on board.

Alani was charged with “willfully damaging, destroying, disabling, or wrecking an aircraft, and attempting to do so,” according to the criminal complaint. He is slated to make a court appearance in Miami Friday afternoon.

If convicted, Alani faces a maximum of 20 years behind bars.

According to the criminal complaint, Alani glued the foam inside a tube leading outside the plane and to the air data module.

Alani told officers that stalled contract negotiations between American Airlines and the mechanic’s union “affected him financially” — so he sabotaged the plane “to cause a delay or have the flight canceled in anticipation of obtaining overtime work,” according to the affidavit written by Jose A. Ruiz, a federal air marshal who serves on an FBI terrorism task force.

The 22,000-member mechanic’s union has been trying to obtain a new contract with American for more than three years, and the groups announced this week they would resume negotiations on Sept. 16 with the help of a mediator. The airline has accused the mechanics of an illegal work slow down resulting in hundreds of canceled and delayed flights, according to the Miami Herald.

American Airlines in a statement to CNN said it immediately notified authorities upon learning of the incident and that it is cooperating in the investigation.

“At American we have an unwavering commitment to the safety and security of our customers and team members, and we are taking this matter very seriously,” it reads.

“At the time of the incident, the aircraft was taken out of service, maintenance was performed and after an inspection to ensure it was safe the aircraft returned to service.”

I don't believe Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani when he said he didn't intend for anyone to get hurt. He ONLY wanted to sabotage the navigation system so he could get the overtime when repairing it. Definitely not for the chance of hurting the infidels. Oh of course not.

This means he disabled the pitot-static system ("pilot" tube in the article is a misspelling). That means no indicated airspeed. Even if the was no warning light, the pilot would have aborted the take off when he/she saw the airspeed indicator was not moving while watching for V1. The pitot-static system has nothing to do with navigation per se, but everything to do with actually flying the plane. Even if no pilot would not take off without an airspeed indicator, this guy committed a serious crime and should fined and locked up.

Five men have been sentenced to a total of 63 years for sexually abusing scores of young girls in Rotherham.

Aftab Hussain, 40, was sentenced to 24 years in prison, and Abid Saddiq, 38, to 20 years by the judge at Sheffield Crown Court, who described Saddiq as a “cunning and determined sexual predator”.

Masaued Malik, 35, was jailed for five years; Sharaz Hussain, 35, for four years; and one man who cannot be named for legal reasons was jailed for 10 years. ...

Another man who cannot be named for legal reasons, who was also found guilty of offences earlier this week, will be sentenced at a later date, as will a seventh defendant, Mohammed Ashan, who pleaded guilty to sex offences at a previous hearing.

The NCA was invited in following the Jay Report which shocked the nation in 2014 when it outlined the scale of the offending against children in the town.

The agency said it has now engaged with 313 victims and survivors in the town and has identified 190 suspects.

This is a direct result of the mass import of Islam into Britain and will continue to happen as long as the public remains too cowed by political correctness to tell the truth about Islam.

Islam does not belong in the West at all. Islam is inherently the enemy of all Western values, as it always was. Muslims rape non-Muslims to be just like Mohammed, who raped, robbed, and murdered non-Muslims, as is lovingly documented in the Koran and Hadith.

News of an 11-year-old girl in the Iranian city of Ilam being repeatedly raped after being illegally married off to a man four times her age has renewed protests by some members of Parliament against the law that allows child marriage.

The child, referred to by the pseudo name of “Raha” by media outlets, was placed in the care of the State Welfare Organization (SWO) following the intervention of a provincial prosecutor because the marriage had taken place without the approval of a local court as required by civil law.

But thousands of other child brides remain at grave risk in Iran, where there is no minimum marriageable age.

It's not that the marriage was seen as wrong by Muslims, it's only that it took place without approval of the local court.

The 44 year old guy was being a perfectly fine Muslim because he was imitating Mohammed, who married Ayesha when she was only six, and fucked her when she was nine:

Aisha was Prophet Muhammad's child bride. He married her when she was six to seven years old and consummated the marriage when she was nine lunar years old.,_Hadith_and_Scholars:Aisha

Mohammed's pedophilia is well-established by Islamic writings.

My hope, the Iranians will someday remember their glorious part and overcome the hypocrisy that Islam has brought about in their minds and psyche. US of A should help them get out of the crap Islam has thrust on Iran/Afghanistan/Central Asia etc. Please analyze the X vs Y chromosome of the region and one will know the massacres Arabs have subjected the men folk to, and the subsequent enslavement of the womenfolk of the area, and the progeny that came about as a result. Hopefully, there will be some sense of retribution that will be awoken in their collective psyche at some point.

My hope is that Islam will eventually be rejected and snuffed out from the Middle East - there are the laws of physics and the increasing ability of absolute morons to inflict mass destruction that I fear - they will destroy the world before rationality can take effect on earth. My hope is that rationality will eventually prevail - before these atavistic idiots gain the capacity to destroy intelligent life as we know it.

My fervent hope is that Iran will be the first to throw out Islam - and the Syrians and the descendants of the Phoenicians and other Levantines will have the courage to follow.

It is sickening that billions of folks believe in the crap dished out by this guy who lusted after his own daughter in law (and then changed the rules of adoption as it suited the purpose of sleeping with her, even though it was previously forbidden by the rules he himself had laid out earlier) ? That sick guy convinced the illiterates of his ilk to believe that whatever came before Islam was ignorance (jahiliyat) - and unfortunately, this occurred at a time when established civilizations were constantly being uprooted by the un civilized - and this dude convinced his folks that this was willed by a divine power, and therefore had sanctity and was divinely ordained.

Unfortunately, 20th century and the choice of the preferred source of energy brought about a lot of wealth to these same mentally deranged societies - sudden wealth to realms that had hitherto subsisted on pillage and rape and had done absolutely nothing to progress the cause of mankind, societies that ill deserved the wealth that was suddenly thrust upon them. The world continues to pay the price for that aberration - and these societies continue to fuel the jihads - getting willing recruits from the poorest regions of this world, paid for by filling their bellies in this life, and the promise of constant orgiastic deliverance in the life hereafter.

I think the Iranians do remember their glorious past and that there is the possibility they will revert to Zoroastrianism one day, though the few remaining Zoroastrians in Iran make a point of not encouraging converts from Islam because they know how insanely violent that makes Muslims.

There is also the class aspect: after the Islamic invasions, a lot of the upper classes in Persian society fled to India and became the Parsis, who also retained the Zoroastrian religion and did very well in India. The lower classes in Persia were revolting against high tax rates and ossification of society by adopting Islam. Islam promised lower taxes and more equality. The Islamic invasion didn't work out very well for Persia, which never regained its place in the world, but wealth and class is still a huge issue and was once again a big reason that the Iranians threw out the Shah and went for hard core Islam instead.

People need some kind of hope, and when the upper classes dig themselves in like ticks, revolutions happen one way or another. The election of Trump was also a revolution against our corrupt two-party system which always seemed to limit our ballot choices to the two candidates that Wall Street liked the best.

How did you get to England? Were you smuggled into the country?

– Smuggled? Hell no, Islamicat just stow away in truck like most other Pusslims and then run like hell when truck stop at services on the M20. Was harder getting to Europe but there is always lots of nice people traffickers around since Ghadaffi fall in Libya and when you is proper jee-had terrorist you get 75% off price of crossing, the people traffickers is big up the Pusslims. Of course they is pretty poor service, they literally just cast off 200 yards into the Mediterranean and then sit there waiting for bleeding heart morons on patrol like the Red Cross come and pick you up and give you free ride to Italy. They is basically just taxi service for jihadicats, people traffickers make fortune just for ferrying people 200 yards off coast of Libya. Nice work if you cans get it.

Yes, because the left are truly racist. The Left actually believes that Muslims are little brown people who do not know better and cannot therefore be held to the same standards as Christians.

Liberals are racist who assume that everyone they don’t know thinks exactly like them. It’s a handy racist shortcut you can take instead of actually having to live with brown people and getting to know them.

Then liberals confuse the poor white people who actually have to live with the brown people as racist because they complain about getting their shit stolen. It’s not racist to notice patterns and take appropriate precautions. A lot of people don’t have the luxury of being able to afford gated communities and private schools.

They're going to make martyrs out of murderers.

The right answer is to publicly point out that Islam itself was responsible for the murders.

Muslims murder people because that's what the religion teaches them to do.
