For decades now, we have had to put up with representatives of the political Left punting round the dishonest phrase ‘Islam is a religion of peace’. Non-Left wingers know that this phrase is not true and neither is objection to Islam any form of ‘racism’. However, there are many on the Left who believe that the ideology of Islam can be appeased and that by ‘dialogue’ its supremacist ideology and the bestial behaviours of its followers can be moderated. Well I’ve got some news for the Left, it cannot be moderated by dialogue or civil criticism because as an ideology it has no respect for such niceties. Just as it was impossible to engage in constructive open-minded dialogue with the Nazis or the Stalinists, so it is with the ideology and followers of Islam.
A recent story has shown what is in store for those who believe that Islam can be talked into being civilised. Wherever Islam in its purest form rules, the rights of others go out of the window. Recently in Mosul, Iraq a prominent human rights lawyer was tortured and murdered for abandoning Islam and criticising the ISIL group.
Fox News said:
“Militants with the Islamic State group tortured and then publicly killed a human rights lawyer in the Iraqi city of Mosul after their self-proclaimed religious court ruled that she had abandoned Islam, the U.N. mission in Iraq said Thursday.
Gunmen with the group’s newly declared police force seized Samira Salih al-Nuaimi last week in a northeastern district of the Mosul while she was home with her husband and three children, two people with direct knowledge of the incident told The Associated Press on Thursday. Al-Nuaimi was taken to a secret location. After about five days, the family was called by the morgue to retrieve her corpse, which bore signs of torture, the two people said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of fears for their safety.
According to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq, her arrest was allegedly connected to Facebook messages she posted that were critical of the militants’ destruction of religious sites in Mosul. A statement by the U.N. on Thursday added that al-Nuaimi was tried in a so-called “Sharia court” for apostasy, after which she was tortured for five days before the militants sentenced her to “public execution.” Her Facebook page appears to have been removed since her death.
“By torturing and executing a female human rights’ lawyer and activist, defending in particular the civil and human rights of her fellow citizens in Mosul, ISIL continues to attest to its infamous nature, combining hatred, nihilism and savagery, as well as its total disregard of human decency,” Nickolay Mladenov, the U.N. envoy to Iraq, said in a statement, referring to the group by an acronym. The statement did not say how she was killed.
Among Muslim hard-liners, apostasy is thought to be not just conversion from Islam to another faith, but also committing actions that they believe are so against the faith that one is considered to have abandoned Islam.
Mosul is the largest city held by the Islamic State group in the self-declared “caliphate” it has carved out, bridging northern and eastern Syria with northern Iraq. Since overrunning the once-diverse city in June, the group has forced religious minorities to convert to Islam, pay special taxes or die, causing tens of thousands to flee. The militants have enforced a strict dress code on women, going so far as to veil the faces of female mannequins in store fronts.
In August, the group destroyed a number of historic landmarks in the town, including several mosques and shrines, claiming they promote idolatry and depart from principles of Islam.
Al-Nuaimi’s death is the latest in a string of attacks by the militant group to silence female activists and politicians. In July in the nearby town of Sderat, militants broke into the house of a female candidate in the last provincial council elections, killed her and abducted her husband, the U.N. said. On the same day, another female politician was abducted from her home in eastern Mosul; she remains missing.”

This is an example of political terror, this is complete and utter oppression and the removal of people’s right to life, this, and let us make no mistake about it, is Islam. The political Left need to wake up and realise that their dream of a multicultural, happy, kumbaya-type heaven on earth has failed, and that there is nothing to be gained, and everything to lose, from continuing to politically fellate the ideology of Islam.
What has happened to Samira Salih al-Nuaimi could eventually happen to those Left wingers who consistently and dishonestly represent Islam as a religion of peace. Islam is an ideology that cannot and must not be trusted because its adherents too often engage in lying to promote the ideology and also have a propensity to turn on those who have mistakenly assisted it. The Left still have not learned the lessons of the destruction of the Iranian Left by the Ayatollahs who they mistakenly thought would bring something better for Iran than the oppressive Shah. One day the Left’s Islamic pets will turn round and bite the heads off the same Lefties who are today insisting that Islam is a religion of peace.
