Said Musa Christian convert to be executed, Former Afghan Muslim, Apostasy punishment not of God

Said Musa Christian convert to be executed, Former Afghan Muslim, Apostasy punishment not of God

No philosophy or religion that fosters and perpetuates debate about executing people for accepting another religion, is of God.

The following has been much under reported and thus I was compelled to present it.

From the National Review February 18, 2011.

 “America Quiet on the Execution of Afghan Christian Said Musa”

“A terrible drama is unfolding in Afghanistan: There are reports that Said Musa, whose situation I described at Christmas, will soon be executed for the ‘crime’ of choosing to become a Christian.

Musa was one of about 25 Christians arrested on May 31, 2010, after a May 27 Noorin TV program showed video of a worship service held by indigenous Afghan Christians; he was arrested as he attempted to seek asylum at the German embassy. He converted to Christianity eight years ago, is the father of six young children, had a leg amputated after he stepped on a landmine while serving in the Afghan Army, and now has a prosthetic leg. His oldest child is eight and one is disabled (she cannot speak). He worked for the Red Cross/Red Crescent as an adviser to other amputees.

He was forced to appear before a judge without any legal counsel and without knowledge of the charges against him. “Nobody [wanted to be my] defender before the court. When I said ‘I am a Christian man,’ he [a potential lawyer] immediately spat on me and abused me and mocked me. . . . I am alone between 400 [people with] terrible values in the jail, like a sheep.” He has been beaten, mocked, and subjected to sleep deprivation and sexual abuse while in prison. No Afghan lawyer will defend him and authorities denied him access to a foreign lawyer.”
“Newspapers in the U.K. and elsewhere in Europe have reported the story, but with, the exception of the Wall Street Journal and, of course, NRO, American outlets have not found it worthy of attention. The Journal reports that “Afghan officials have been unapologetic: ‘The sentence for a convert is death and there is no exception,’ said Jamal Khan, chief of staff at the Ministry of Justice. ‘They must be sentenced to death to serve as a lesson for others.’”

The U.S. government — reportedly including Secretary of State Clinton — and other governments have pushed for his release, but to no avail.

But the president has been silent, even as we fight a war that has among its goals the creation of a government that conforms to international human-rights standards.”

“The question you have raised about the punishment of apostasy in Islam, like any other question related to Islam, needs to be answered in the light of the Qur`an and the authentic ahadith. I repeat this well-known principle here because many Muslims, even scholars are often influenced by some extraneous considerations in arriving at their Islamic opinions. Thus some reject the death penalty for apostasy out of a desire to “improve” the image of Islam among non-Muslims. Others, on the other hand, insist on that penalty out of a concern that rejection of the penalty will encourage apostasy. There are also some who are influenced by a tendency to stick to traditional views no matter what. At some point the death penalty for apostasy was widely accepted among Muslims and many of us feel that what our earlier generations accepted must be correct and must be accepted by us also. Since such extraneous influences can mislead us, let us first try to free our minds from them.”

Lara Logan sexual attack and beating in Cairo, Democratic movement or mob rule, Treatment of Logan exception or rule in Muslim world

Lara Logan sexual attack and beating in Cairo, Democratic movement or mob rule, Treatment of Logan exception or rule in Muslim world

The treatment of women in the Muslim world is less than stellar. Is the following incident the exception or the rule?

From the Chicago Tribune February 15, 2011.

“CBS News correspondent Lara Logan was recovering in a U.S. hospital Tuesday from a sexual attack and beating she suffered while reporting on the tumultuous events in Cairo.

Logan was in the city’s Tahrir Square on Friday after Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down when she, her team and their security “were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration,” CBS said in a statement Tuesday.

The network described a mob of more than 200 people “whipped into a frenzy.”

Separated from her crew in the crush of the violent pack, she suffered what CBS called “a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating.” She was saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers, the network said. The Associated Press does not name victims of a sexual assault unless the victim agrees to it.
She reconnected with the CBS team and returned to the U.S. on Saturday.

The scene last Friday in Tahrir Square — ground zero of 18 days of protests that brought down Mubarak — was primarily one of celebration — people wept, jumped for joy, cheered and hugged one another. Some soldiers stationed at the square ran into the crowd, and the protesters lifted them onto their shoulders. Other troops stayed at their posts, watching in awe. There were fireworks, the sound of car horns and even some shots fired in the air.

Sexual harassment of women is an all-too-common occurrence on the streets of Cairo. But many women noted a complete absence of it in the early days of protests in Tahrir Square, where demonstrators made a point of trying to create a microcosm of the society without many of Egypt’s social ills.

However, in the final days, and especially after the battles with pro-Mubarak gangs who attacked the protesters in Tahrir, women noticed sexual assault had returned to the square. On the day Mubarak fell, women reported being groped by the rowdy crowds. One witness saw a woman slap a man after he touched her. The man was then passed down a line of people who all slapped him and reprimanded him.”

9/11 Trials, NY City, Terrorists, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Daniel Pearl decapitation, New York terrorists trial, Obama and Eric Holder, Left wing socialist agenda, Obama supporters, Forum on CIA waterboarding and America, Terrorist training camps

To: Barack Obama and his cadre of left wing, socialist, anti Americans

and

Terrorists bent on killing America and Americans.

Let

Me

Make

This

Perfectly

Clear

1. Any attempts to turn the trial in NY City of 9/11 terrorists into a 3 ring circus and a forum on American interogation techniques or what is wrong with America will be met with:

  • A backlash of outrage such as never before witnessed in this country.
  • The Tea Party held recently in Washington DC will pale in comparison.
  • We will hold all responsible accountable.

2. We are going to flush out all of the terrorist rats out of this country.

  • If you are operating a terrorist training camp.
  • If you are espousing anti American propaganda from a Mosque or other forum.
  • If you are embedded in the US Military or other government agency.

Pack your bags and scurry.

3. We will no longer tolerate political correctness to trump common sense and national security.
4. We will no longer tolerate terrorists getting preferential treatment. These war criminals are not US Citizens and are not protected under the US Constitution.
From The Right Side of Life

“9/11 Terrorists Brought Into US for Criminal Case”

“The Obama Administration is preparing to bring 5 of the terrorists behind the 9/11 attack to New York city to undergo a civilian, criminal trial, where the chief murder is Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (IWatchObama has a run-down on the terrorists involved).”
“This summer, I theorized that Attorney General Eric Holder — and his boss — had a hidden agenda in ordering a re-investigation of the CIA for six-year-old alleged interrogation excesses that had already been scrutinized by non-partisan DOJ prosecutors who had found no basis for prosecution. The continuing investigations of Bush-era counterterrorism policies (i.e., the policies that kept us safe from more domestic terror attacks), coupled with the Holder Justice Department’s obsession to disclose classified national-defense information from that period, enable Holder to give the hard Left the “reckoning” that he and Obama promised during the 2008 campaign. It would be too politically explosive for Obama/Holder to do the dirty work of charging Bush administration officials; but as new revelations from investigations and declassifications are churned out, Leftist lawyers use them to urge European and international tribunals to bring “torture” and “war crimes” indictments. Thus, administration cooperation gives Obama’s base the reckoning it demands but Obama gets to deny responsibility for any actual prosecutions.”

From Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs.
“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed decapitation of Daniel Pearl”
“Obama kisses the bloody fists of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and bestows upon one of America’s most lethal enemies in the world the gift of the constitutional rights given to an American citizen. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was captured in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, on March 1, 2003.

Obama is our worst nightmare. This is evil.”

I have been receiving information and reading about terrorist camps in this country for many months. Recently I was given some information that is disturbing. I have been doing some more research and am awaiting some specifics.

It was just recently that jailed attorney Leo Haffey warned of activity at a Mosque in the Nashville, TN area.

I am reaching out to my fellow Americans, commenters, blog and website owners. We must expose terrorist camps and other radical Islam threats. We cannot allow to spread what is already, as recent events have born out, a serious situation.

Murray v. Geithner, Judge Denies Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss, May 27, 2009, Defendant Timothy Geithner, AIG, Sharia Law, Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 challenged

Phil at the Right Side of Life reports:

“Murray v. Geithner: Judge Denies Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss RE: AIG, Sharia Law”

“The Thomas More Law Center had originally filed suit in December of 2008 challenging the constitutionality of a portion of the “Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008” (EESA) that appropriated $40 billion in taxpayer money to fund the federal government’s majority ownership interest in AIG, which engages in Shariah-based Islamic religious activities that the Center considers are “anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish.”

They now report that Federal District Court Judge Lawrence P. Zatkoff has denied the Defendant’s (Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and the Federal Reserve Board) Motion to Dismiss:”

“In his well-written and detailed analysis issued yesterday, Judge Zatkoff denied the request by the Obama administration’s Department of Justice to dismiss the lawsuit.  The request was filed on behalf of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and the Federal Reserve Board – the named defendants in the case.  In his ruling, the judge held that the lawsuit sufficiently alleged a federal constitutional challenge to the use of taxpayer money to fund AIG’s Islamic religious activities.”

“In its request to dismiss the lawsuit, the DOJ argued that the plaintiff in the case, Kevin Murray, who is a former Marine and a federal taxpayer, lacked standing to bring the action.  And even if he did have standing, DOJ argued that the use of the bailout money to fund AIG’s operations did not violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.  The court disagreed, noting, in relevant part, the following:

In this case, the fact that AIG is largely a secular entity is not dispositive: The question in an as-applied challenge is not whether the entity is of a religious character, but how it spends its grant. The circumstances of this case are historic, and the pressure upon the government to navigate this financial crisis is unfathomable.  Times of crisis, however, do not justify departure from the Constitution.  In this case, the United States government has a majority interest in AIG.  AIG utilizes consolidated financing whereby all funds flow through a single port to support all of its activities, including Sharia-compliant financing.  Pursuant to the EESA, the government has injected AIG with tens of billions of dollars, without restricting or tracking how this considerable sum of money is spent.  At least two of AIG’s subsidiary companies practice Sharia-compliant financing, one of which was unveiled after the influx of government cash.  After using the $40 billion from the government to pay down the $85 billion credit facility, the credit facility retained $60 billion in available credit, suggesting that AIG did not use all $40 billion consistent with its press release.  Finally, after the government acquired a majority interest in AIG and contributed substantial funds to AIG for operational purposes, the government co-sponsored a forum entitled “Islamic Finance 101.”  These facts, taken together, raise a question of whether the government’s involvement with AIG has created the effect of promoting religion and sufficiently raise Plaintiff’s claim beyond the speculative level, warranting dismissal inappropriate at this stage in the proceedings.”
