Imagine: You’re on trial and you discover the judge appointed to hear the case has already decided you are guilty and has a long history of publicly saying so. That appears to be the UN Human Rights Council approach to justice when it comes to one particular country. They seem to do a variation of the old trick of saying ‘We will hold a free and open trial and at the end of it we will find you guilty’.
In the past eight years of 36 statements and reports by the Rapporteur, all 36 have only criticized Israel. No other conflict is investigated by the UN in this twisted manner.
Scotland: Imam at Glasgow’s biggest mosque praises Muslim who murdered foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws
Does Imam Maulana Habib Ur Rehman want Sharia blasphemy laws in Scotland? What do you think?
Note also that Imam Maulana Habib Ur Rehman has not been arrested for “inciting racial or religious hatred.” British police were doubtless too busy with the case of Matthew Doyle, who committed the unpardonable offense of asking a Muslim woman to “explain Brussels.”
In modern multicultural Britain, you must not dare ask Muslims to account for all the mass murder that is committed in the name of Islam, or to do anything to counter it. But you can praise a man who committed murder for saying that others should not be killed for offending Islam, thereby tacitly expressing approval of violence against those who are deemed to be “blaspheming” against Islam. In Cameron’s Britain, that’s just fine — but Matthew Doyle? Off with his head!
Tiny Minority of Extremists Update: “Glasgow mosque leader praises extremist killer,” by Calum McKay, BBC, March 24, 2016:
The religious leader at Scotland’s biggest mosque has praised an extremist who was executed for committing murder in Pakistan, the BBC can reveal.
Imam Maulana Habib Ur Rehman of Glasgow Central Mosque used the messaging platform WhatsApp to show his support for Mumtaz Qadri.
Qadri was hanged in February after murdering a local politician who opposed strict blasphemy laws.
In a statement the imam said the messages had been taken out of context….
Of course! Don’t Infidels always take Muslim spokesmen out of context when those Muslim spokesmen express support for violence against Infidels?
In messages seen by the BBC, Imam Maulana Habib Ur Rehman says that he is “disturbed” and “upset” at the news of Qadri’s execution, before writing “rahmatullahi alai”, a religious blessing usually given to devout Muslims and meaning may God’s mercy be upon him.
In another, he says: “I cannot hide my pain today. A true Muslim was punished for doing which [sic] the collective will of the nation failed to carry out.”
Maulana Habib Ur Rehman is the most senior imam at Glasgow Central Mosque, a role which involves leading prayers and giving religious guidance and teachings….
Qadri was employed as a bodyguard for the governor of Punjab province in Pakistan, Salman Taseer, before turning on him in 2011 and shooting him nine times.
After the shooting Qadri reportedly told journalists that he was “proud” and that he had killed a “blasphemer”.
Another massacre inspired by the Koran and the historical life of Muhammad, carried out by those who insist they are following the true path of Islam. And what do we get from the Western media? An immediate barrage of Imams telling us this isn’t Islam, Islam is a religion of peace.
Most Middle East experts agree that it is not a matter of if, but when Israel and Hezbollah engage in their next conflict. However, the warnings coming from both sides is ramping up expectations that the next conflict may be the largest battle yet between the two foes.
