Pakistan: Insult Islam and suffer death

This is a great report by CNN from last November on a Pakistani Christian woman facing death for insulting Islam. Asia Bibi is being accused of insulting the Prophet Mohammad by suggesting he had worms in his mouth which means he was no prophet, but only human. Her husband insists that the accusations are false, but even so the fact that it’s a criminal offense in Pakistan is absurd. She is currently still alive, however this report tells the truth about Asia Bibi and Islam (h/t: Walid Shoebat)

Currently (Mar 9) she is in prison fearing her death, according to the CNA:

The Christian mother is presently in an isolation cell in a Punjab jail for allegedly violating the country’s strict blasphemy law.

She is still afraid that she could be the next target of violent Islamic groups. Posters have appeared inside the jail showing images of Taseer and Bhatti with a large question mark and the threatening phrase “Who will be next?”

“Asia says that part of her hope died with [Shahbaz] Bhatti, but there are other things that give her hope: the support of all Christians in Pakistan and around the world; the visit of her children,” which was recently made possible after bureaucratic problems, according to Bibi’s lawyer.

    I remember this story, haven’t heard anything since then, glad someone is keeping track with such things. What terrible people, 2:25 shows unanimous support for her execution, and the town cleric saying how happy the verdict made him; absolutely disgusting. I really cannot fathom what can be done in such situations, as these people are willingly accepting this into their lives, and the few that are innocent are paying the price.

    There is just no changing these people, they are simply evil.

    O.K. let me get this straight, this is a OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT prosecuting a woman to death for speech. This is not Mohammad Atta who had a bad day and had a “bad tear”/misunderstanding the Koran.

    Does it bother anyone else that these people’s [Islamic] higher power sounds like a weak S.O.B.? He can’t handle a simple verbal insult. Even then, he can’t manage to kill the person who supposedly offended him himself. Who would want to worship something like that?

    I think I notice a significant difference in leadership between the different religions. The recent Moslem religious leaders, as compared to the recent Popes and true Protestant leaders.

    IMO –
    Besides the good these Christian leaders do: Imagine what they would say and do if some “Christians” started beheading people, blowing people up, or flying planes into buildings, etc., shouting, “Jesus is Lord.”

    Christian leaders would immediately, loudly, clearly condemn this. And then they’d do it again. And then again. It would become a significant external goal of the Church to stop this evil behavior. And the true leaders would lead some of us to do so.

    Now look at the Moslem religious leaders. . . .

    • Elmerfud71

      Just think, with every gallon of gas we buy, we contribute to these kinds of leaders. The CIA and our government give aid and use these people for political purposes and control mechanisms. Our government doesn’t really care about what they do humanitarily speaking, and they are the perfect kind of culture to manipulate. People who are so idealistically rigid will lack cohesion and be repressed technologically. In America, we have issues of division controlled by the State such as abortion, welfare, drugs, guns, left/right paradigm, etc, and they have mostly Muslim sect differences and infighting. Both societies are easy to separate and manipulate.

      Of course Muslims kill people for speaking badly about muhamed. They have been doing it for many centuries. They kill people for being Christians, and for adultery, and many other reasons. It is a murderous religion. When George Bush said it was a peaceful religion, I finally started realizing that Bush was a lying piece of garbage just like Clinton and Obama. The point is that our government sees both them and us as useful idiots. Most of the time, we are.

        The socialists will say, “But there were bad Christians here. And bad Christians there.” I agree – they were really bad at being Christian.

        Above I was comparing the values and principles of the Christian leaders to the Moslem leaders of our life time. For instance, comparing what the Pope would say and do if a group of people routinely killed innocents in the name of Jesus, while shouting, “Jesus is Lord.” Any Christian Protestant leader too. Even if it risked their lives. Of course they would condemn it, and oppose it openly and courageously if need be.

        I don’t see Moslem religious leaders pushing to get on news shows to oppose and condemn the terrorists that murder innocents in the name of their ‘God’. That’s what I’m talking about.

      Who wants to play “does anyone remember the Spanish Inquisition?”

      • KeninMontana

        Sure, how about the most widely accepted number of deaths (by a majority of historians) at about 32,000 from 1480-1808 AD. You were aware,I imagine, that the Spanish Inquisition was carried out by the Spanish Monarchy.

        • Anonymous

          And we’re clear that the Spanish Monarchy was a Christian government who had established the office of the inquisition in order to maintain Christian orthodoxy in their kingdom, right? And that it was actually “carried out” by Dominican and Franciscan Friars. Or that a death toll does not at all offer an accurate picture of how many people were affected (can we say torture/expulsion?)

          And there are mountains of other examples of Christians persecuting Jews and pagans over the years.

          I think they’ve moved beyond that now, but this whole notion that Christianity somehow offers a non-violent contrast to Islam that is based upon some sort of doctrinal superiority is ludicrous – Christians have done this for centuries and centuries – their toning it down over the past century or two doesn’t erase history.

            Muslims have been at it since Muhammed was having sex with a 9 year old. Don’t forget that Islam is only a few hundred years younger than Christianity.

            As far as Spain goes, Muslims have a lot of Spanish blood on their hands. They are not innocent victims.

            • Ira Thurby-Wright

              Oh, let’s not bicker about who killed who

          • What you fail to understand (and perhaps willingly so) is that the Bible doesn’t teach Christians to do violence and to hate people who disagree with them. Christ didn’t slaughter 300 Baal worshipers just because they believed something different.

            Instead Christ taught His people to love their enemies and ‘turn the other cheek’.

            So what you seem all to willing to blame on Christianity is really the fault of people who are not living what Christ taught them to live.

            However Islam IS different. It teaches its followers to hate infidels because they don’t believe in Allah or Mohammed. And because of this its history of violence is all too clear.

            If someone like yourself were being honest, you would acknowledge that. However you’ve done nothing but spew this anti-Christian garbage since you’ve been here despite arguments similar to mine.

            And I’m tired of it. Goodbye.

              Thank you. You are much more tolerant that I would ever be with posters like that. They’ve managed to purge conservative voices from every message board and forum they find and then they come to conservative blogs and do the same thing.

              I spent 6 years posting on a fairly liberal message board and it wasn’t Muslims who got me banned. It was people like dmk who couldn’t stand seeing the truth about Islam exposed.

              Scoop I just use the line (can’t take credit for it myself) which says something to the effect of: If all the Christians the world over would go around emulating Christ and obeying his words to the ‘T’, how would the world look?

              If all the Muslims around the world went around acting like Mohammad and obeying his teachings 100%, how would the world look?

              I wasn’t even looking to bash muslims, just state that this is what they do. I guess bashing is a natural consequence of that. Not hard to do.

            Actually the office of the inquisitor was run by the Jesuits.

              Wasn’t Torquemada a Domincan?

              • KeninMontana

                Yes he was, he was a Dominican appointed to be the first Inquisitor General of Spain, he was Isabella’s choice to head up the office only grudging approved by the Pope. He was also the Queen’s confessor. Rome had originally resisted the Monarchy’s request to begin an inquisition. The Jesuits were then the “CIA” of the Church ( likely still are) another of their unofficial “nicknames” was “the footsoldiers of God”. Torquemada’s appointment was a political move by the Spanish Monarchy to keep the inquisition “in the family” and limit Rome’s control.

                  Oh I know a bit about the Jesuits, lol that fourth vow and how it’s been used made me fight to keep my eyes in my head. I thought you were saying that Torquemada was a Jesuit.

                  Speaking of Jesuits…Lon Horiuchi, sniper who opened fire multiple times into the Waco compound without orders was the same FBI agent who shot Randy Weaver in the shoulder, his wife, Vicki, in the head, and their friend in the chest was one. Fourth vow, too I think, but don’t quote me on that.

                  Yeah, when Beck started talking about “the black robe brigade” I did a hard double take. First thing that entered my mind was that he was advocating for the Jesuits. They are nearly a scary as Nuns.

        Islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

        Islam strives for world domination.

        The Quran commands Muslims to exercise jihad.

        The Quran commands Muslims to establish shariah law.

        The Quran commands Muslims to impose Islam on the entire world.

        Islam is not merely a religion, it is mainly a totalitarian ideology.

        Islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

        Shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a Islamic society.

        From civic- and family law to criminal law.

        It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

        Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

        The core of the Quran is the call to jihad.

        Jihad means a lot of things and is Arabic for battle.

        Islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

        Islam and freedom, Islam and democracy are not compatible.

        They are opposite values.

        Mohamed’s “wife” was six years old.

        That makes Mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

        And you want to base a “Religion” on this a z z -holes rantings?

        Facts are facts. Muslims do what they do, and many have done wrong in the name of Christ. Mohamed taught it, and Christ did not. I could go out killing in the name of George Bush. Would you say that George is responsible for it?

    I thought the MSM loved Islam… right?

  • Anonymous

    CNN? Did this ever air on American CNN or was it only shown on the international versionof CNN?

    Who cares? These types of stories are rampant and have been for years. Not too long after I started learning about Islam there was an incident were an entire town chased a man down and killed him because of a rumor that he had disrepected the Koran. I posted a link to the article and I got all the usual suspects who replied with the usual “Inquisition” and “Crusades” arguments. As if everybody should just accept present day Islamic brutality because Christians were barbaric in the past. Then there were, of course, the idiots who replied with the usual “tiny minority” and “you can’t blame a billion people for the actions of a few (except when it comes to Christians and Jews)”.

    The problem with both those arguments is that Islam doesn’t require any offical or organized authoritative presense to enforce these types of reactions. In the case of the town who chased down the man, it wasn’t 5 people who chased him. It wasn’t 15. It wasn’t the town leaders or tribal elders or an offical religious declaration that sealed his fate. It was a rumor spread through the town and 500 people took it upon themselves to take care of it. Because that’s what Islam demands of it’s followers.

    Proof of this small fact is obvious to anyone who bothers to see it. But too many people don’t bother. Their hatred for Christianity, Jews, America, and the West in general is so great that they refuse to see that Muslims don’t need a Crusade or an Inquisition. Defense of Islam is a basic and integral part of the “faith”. Not God or Allah. Islam itself. Muslims don’t actually “worship” Allah or Muhammed. They worship Islam.

    Tears of joy filled my eyes when I learned of her (death) sentence

    You watch those hands go up in this poor woman’s village in support of her death sentence and you realize that Radical Islam is really Mainstream Islam in certain parts. All the PC multicultural treatment of Islam isn’t going to change that.

    I remember years ago hoping in vain the average Palestinian would sue for peace, willing to set aside differences and saw an interview of a mother who lost her son to the accidental explosion in her neighbor’s apartment while he was building bombs to attack Israel. I thought for sure she would condemn her neighbor’s reckless “hobby” and curse both sides for the ongoing conflict that cost her the joy of watching her son grow up. Instead, she spewed out vitriol solely directed at Israel followed by praising Arafat, the PLO, and All_h.

    I realized then that these people are so disconnected from reality that they will sacrifice the lives of the very ones they love, for whom they would normally dedicate their entire existence, for a political agenda in which they’ve become indelibly indoctrinated. It’s not about a loyalty to All_h or conviction to Islam – you can’t reason with people like that. You can’t reason with them in peace time, you can’t in their darkest hour, their tunnel vision is impenetrable. Their bosoms are so filled with hate there’s no room for anything else.

    Islam seems incompatible with the rest of the species, which is evinced when you survey the most intense geo-political conflicts of our time. I don’t know enough about the Q’aran to say whether it is inherent in their doctrine, or if their doctrine has been hijacked by a group of fascists.

    • Ira Thurby-Wright

      Arafat, the PLO

      Interesting aside, I just recently learned that the “Muslim Brotherhood” has it’s foundings in 1929. Here are some strange connections. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, from Egypt, assigned by the British over Jerusalem was actually a lower level Ottoman aristo/bureaucrat, who in about the same time period began stirring up Bedouins and Arabs in Jerusalem inciting riots against the British, fomenting hatred for the burgeoning Jewish population, and culminating in a slaughter of Jews at the Wailing Wall. The British sent him packing and he spent the latter half of the 1930s in Berlin as a guest of the Nazis, providing consulting services on implementing “The Final Solution”. He was never able to return to Jerusalem because of the British protectorate thereof, but his nephew, coming out of Egypt eventually returned. That would be Arafat, murderer, nephew of a murderer.
