I meant to get to this Sunday, but didn’t. Still, it bears posting now because it is yet another of the gazillion examples that American Muslims are no more “moderate” than Muslims in Riyadh, Tehran, or Gaza City. In fact, they try to impose the most uncivilized of Muslim practices from the old country on America, time and again. And these Muslims are not even “from the old country” but were born and converted to Islam here, demonstrating yet again the poisonous extremism and violence endemic to Islam regardless of borders or location.
“Religion of Peace” . . . & Chopping Off Hands . . .
Two men described as leaders of a Philadelphia mosque were accused of trying to cut off the hand of a suspected thief, whose wrist was sliced so deeply it required hospital treatment, police said on Friday. The 46-year-old victim said two officials in the mosque accused him of stealing jars of money from the house of worship after morning prayers on Monday. The officials, described in police reports as the mosque’s imam and amir, dragged the victim to the rear of the mosque, and attempted to chop off his hand with a machete, according to a police statement. [DS: Amir means "ruler" or "prince."]
He sustained a severe laceration to his right wrist, and was transported to a nearby hospital by medics. Officers served a search warrant on Thursday on the mosque, located in a house in the city’s Overbrook section, where they arrested Merv Mitchell, also known as Mabul Shoatz. They recovered a 2-foot-long machete from the scene. The mosque’s imam, an unidentified 35-year-old male, has not yet been located, police said.
Yet another example of why I always say that Islam versus the West is not a clash of civilizations. Those who claim it is are assuming the former is actually civilization. Make no mistake. It most certainly is not.
But while this story of horrific barbarism in the name of Islam goes largely unnoticed, we will continue to be barraged with stories about how backward and imposing Christians are. You know the drill. (And Islam knows the machete.)
Ramadan Kareem [a generous Ramadan]!
