Convert to Islam Receives 40 Lashes for Drinking Alcohol . . . in Australia

ME: "We need to be on guard against Muslims who want to impose Sharia."

OTHERS: "Racist! Bigot! Islamophobe! Everyone knows that Muslims have no desire to impose Sharia. Enough of your fear-mongering!"

AUSTRALIA--A Sydney man who was held down on his bed and whipped up to 40 times by strangers had recently converted to Islam and was reportedly being punished for drinking.

The 31-year-old was asleep in his apartment in Silverwater, in Sydney's west, when he woke to find four bearded men in his bedroom about 1am (AEST) yesterday.

Three of the intruders restrained him on the bed while the fourth man used a cable to lash him 40 times.

The attack lasted about 30 minutes and left the man covered in welts, the Seven Network reported today.

The man reportedly told police he had only recently converted to Islam and that fundamental Wahabi Muslims were punishing him for having a few drinks with friends.

Members of Sydney's Muslim community have condemned the attack.

"This criminal act has no place in Islam. As Australian Muslims we are required to follow Australian law, not take the law into our own individual hands," Ahmed Kilami, from the Muslim Village, told the Seven Network.

"I hope these guys are caught and face the full force of the law."

The victim has moved out of his home but hopes what happens to him will not distort people's view of his adopted religion, the network said. (Source)

Yes, it would be absolutely absurd to condemn Islam based on its teachings. Instead, we should ignore its teachings and praise it.

I wonder if the convert would have converted if he had known the following:

Is Allah the "Best of Planners" as said in the Koran?

The way the verses are written Allah even tricks his own followers,including Muhammad during a battle,and when you think about it Allah is the one responsible for the creation of the resurrection belief,that is to say Christianity,a false religion for Islam

Yes, Islam requires the observance of the laws of the Muslim's host country and they would NEVER think of violating those laws - EXCEPT in India . . . and then there is the United States . . . and let's not forget the U.K. . . . and - oh well, so many countries and so little time!

Muslims not wanting to take the law into their own hands? That sounds pretty good EXCEPT for the parts within the Qur'an which require Muslims to take the law into their own hands which, by the way, constitutes a large portion of the Qur'an.

Just like in the Qur'an - a glorious statement followed by a multitude of exceptions. It is little wonder that Muslims rely so heavily on "scholars" to keep their religion straight, it requires an army of them just to keep up with all of the exceptions to a rule and all of the conflicts within this "perfect" document. How can the common man ever be expected to understand and comply with all of the teachings of Islam when they can change at a moments notice and justification for the change can be found within the Qur'an? I guess the marching orders are, "Be a good little Islamobot and do what you're told by the Imam. Even if it sounds wrong, it's probably in the Qur'an anyway so just do it!"

"The victim has moved out of his home but hopes what happens to him will not distort people's view of his adopted religion, the network said."

NOPE, we wouldn't want anyone to get a distorted view of Islam, now would we? I guess this guy is a Masochist.

This is very disturbing. Hopefully, this kind of thing won't become widespread in the Western world. It's a good thing that Sydney's Muslim community condemned the attackers; silence at these kinds of things would only encourage it further.

LOL it is like a trap. The guy converts, and then can no longer escapte his new sect.
This is really crazy.

Joe Bradley said...

I think that, at the very minimum, the Muslim community was complicit with this action even though they overtly condemned it.

The Muslim deceptive art of Taquiyya is permitted in Islam so I wouldn't place much credence in that which Ahmed Kilami has said.

This is to good, a Muslim convert, is whipped by his fellow Muslims for violating one of the Laws he is supposed to obey.

This Muslim then complains to the Kuffar police becasue his fellow Muslim brothers practiced Islam on him.

Muslim assosation condems the attack not becasue it was wrong persay but becasue it happend in a Kuffar country. Had this been in a Muslim country I wonder if they would of condemed it.

What is even more amazing is that it appears that this idiot is still a MUSLIM lol.

Just goes to show you what I have been saying all along.

Muslims want Islam practiced on anyone but themselves. LOL

Well now he knows just what sort of a community he has joined. My advice to him is to run as fast as he can as far as he can away. Since they were willing to beat him for a few drinks I would also recommend a name change as they would likely try to kill him for leaving Islam.

Joe Bradley said...

RM, I guess he is still a Muslim because his newly found associates, effectively, sent him the message that they aren't playing around and they fully intend to implement Sharia. Unfortunately he is, now, trapped because he knows that, by becoming an apostate and leaving Islam, his new buddies will kill him as they are required to do.

This guy has made a covenant with the Devil and he is now a prisoner of his newly found religion.

This poor sap can't even console himself for his stupidity by getting drunk and he must now live with his decision and do it within a state of complete sobriety.

I find this statement interesting:

"This criminal act has no place in Islam. As Australian Muslims we are required to follow Australian law, not take the law into our own individual hands," Ahmed Kilami, from the Muslim Village, told the Seven Network."

While these individuals did commit a criminal act by taking the punishment into their own hands, it is not without approval from the Qu'ran and hadiths. Only the means of carrying it out are in question. Shouldn't this person know this?

Interesting article. Now this guy is trapped. He will curse his own stupidity. I pity his decision, really.
