The idea that "random" violence and certain acts of street crime are founded in Islam is of course not my own. My immediate inspiration for that post came from an article at FrontPageMag.com entitled Salt Lake Jihad?. No one's blogosphere education is complete if that person doesn't know of the works of Fjordman (Immigrant Rape Wave in Sweden), a legendary blogger; his works have more recently been filed via another legendary site, Gates of Vienna (for example, see Norwegian Authorities Still Covering Up Muslim Rapes). Fjordman's work and the works posted at GOV obviously also served as food for thought. There are also other related posts in the blogosphere; for example: Chastity Belts Make Comback in Sweden.
In response to my post, Highest Infidelity responded with a link entitled: Relatives of killer: 1997 Empire State shooting was revenge for U.S. support for Israel. That got me to thinking about the other reports, and I decided to do some research and see just how bad Islamic crime has gotten. Here are some initial results:
In what appears to be a Christian site that seems to have serious differences with some Christian denominations, a site that appears to no longer be maintained, I found this posting, which included the texts of emails that the site had received, describing a situation in Indonesia. The page sounded pretty sincere and honest; check it out for yourself: Muslim mobs rape children while crying, "Allah is Great!"; the page has dates from 1998. Some key quotes (it's pretty bad; I'll spare you all the details):
Hundreds of Chinese Indonesian girls/women (aged 10-55) were sexually harassed and gang raped brutally. Some victims were even raped in front of their family members or in front of inhuman cheering crowd. Some of them were even thrown into the fire and burnt to death after being raped. Yet, not many actions seem to have been taken to investigate all this or to help the victims. And not very many people seem to know or care about what happened. Please help to spread the news and let the world know. We need help to get more international attention to help Chinese Indonesians, who are now living in fear in Indonesia.
"My name is Vivian, and I am 18 years old. I have a little sister and brother. As a family we live in what is supposed to be a "secure" apartment. At 9.15 am, May 14th, 1998 a huge crowd had gathered around our apartment. They screamed, "Let's butcher the Chinese!", "Let's eat pigs!", "Let's have a party!"....
We could hear girls of 10 to 12 years old screaming, "Mommy, ...mommy...mom...mom...it hurts" That time I didn't know that these little girls were being raped. After about half an hour the noise diminished and we had some guts to go out and check. It was indescribable. A lot, some of them young girls, were lying on the floor. "Oh my God, what has happened?" Seeing all of this we screamed and my little sister Fenny, screamed hysterically and hugged her father.
After I fainted 7 people raped me. At that time my father still couldn't see well after being hit with a piece of wood. They raped me repeatedly. Then my father said "Vivian, Fenny is gone..." I was confused and cried out, "Why Dad?" My father couldn't answer. He told me to rest and went out of the room. I cried over and over again, feeling that my life had no meaning any more.
Additional comments from Bill Hekman: This is one of many victims. Hundreds of women and children were raped, mutilated and killed by Muslim mobs. Some had their vaginas ripped apart, their bodies cut into pieces. Over 5000 of the Chinese Indonesian's shops were looted and burned down. A few days ago anther 63 shops were burned in Tegal, Central Java. The city of Solo is burned down. There is no protection and no justice in this country any more.
In an article from December 3, 2001, entitled Martyred: Muslim murder and mayhem against Christians
President Bush's repeated assertions about the peaceful nature of Islam were briefly interrupted when the State Department issued the annual report required by the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998. This year, as in the past, our Muslim-world partners in the coalition against terrorism were prominently featured among the most violent, most intolerant regimes in the world. Religious minorities are persecuted in over 20 states where Islam is the official or dominant religion. The million Christians who have fled the Muslim world in the past five years were hardly seeking sanctuary from the peaceful face of Islam.
With shocking regularity, human-rights groups report the death of Christians at the hands of Muslim militants in Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East....
The article then takes us on a tour of Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Algeria, and other countries, describing crimes based on religious hatred.
My question: Why does President Bush keep covering for these guys, calling this a Religion of Peace? And don't tell me he's better than Kerry or Gore would have been, because that sure isn't saying much.
In an article from 2005, Jihad Watch describes murders in the United States related to Christians who were proselytizing to Muslims: Ignoring Muslim Murder on U.S. Soil?. The story was picked up by Fox News: Two Charged in NJ Family Slaying, where the crime was explained as not being motivated by religion, and the Coptic Church was quoted as feeling relieved by that.
An article from Der Spiegel describes how six Muslim women were killed by their family members for trying to break free and live as Westerners. The link takes you to a page where you have to wait for a moment for the article to load: "The Whore Lived Like a German".
Fjordman's report was picked up by FrontPageMag.com. Also at FrontPageMag.com is an article describing crimes perpetrated by Muslims in western countries: Western Muslims' Racist Rape Spree. Some quotes:
In Australia, Norway, Sweden and other Western nations, there is a distinct race-based crime in motion being ignored by the diversity police: Islamic men are raping Western women for ethnic reasons. We know this because the rapists have openly declared their sectarian motivations.
When a number of teenage Australian girls were subjected to hours of sexual degradation during a spate of gang rapes in Sydney that occurred between 1998 and 2002, the perpetrators of these assaults framed their rationale in ethnic terms. The young victims were informed that they were "sluts" and "Aussie pigs" while they were being hunted down and abused.
In Australia's New South Wales Supreme Court in December 2005, a visiting Pakistani rapist testified that his victims had no right to say no, because they were not wearing a headscarf.
And with haunting synchronicity in 2004, the London Telegraph reported that visiting Egyptian scholar Sheik Yusaf al-Qaradawi claimed female rape victims should be punished if they were dressed immodestly when they were raped. He added, "For her to be absolved from guilt, a raped woman must have shown good conduct."
In Sweden, according to translator for Jihad Watch, Ali Dashti, "Gang rapes, usually involving Muslim immigrant males and native Swedish girls, have become commonplace." A few weeks ago she said, "Five Kurds brutally raped a 13-year-old Swedish girl."
In France, Samira Bellil broke her silence – after enduring years of repeated gang rapes in one of the Muslim populated public housing projects – and wrote a book, In the hell of the tournantes, that shocked France. Describing how gang rape is rampant in the banlieues, she explained to Time that, "any neighborhood girl who smokes, uses makeup or wears attractive clothes is a whore."
Unfortunately, Western women are not the only victims in this epidemic. In Indonesia, in 1998, human rights groups documented the testimony of over 100 Chinese women who were gang raped during the riots that preceded the fall of President Suharto. Many of them were told: "You must be raped, because you are Chinese and non-Muslim."
The article continues with its own global tour of Muslim atrocities. Notice the last paragraph quoted, which may correlate the above report from the Christian website regarding the gang rapes in Indonesia.
Here are a couple of blogposts regarding shootings in Seattle: Meet the Muslim Shooting Suspect from July 29, 2006 and Shooting in Seattle: Muslim Revenge from July 28, 2006.
Even 60 Minutes picked up on the situation in France: The New French Revolution: Population Of France Is Almost 10 Percent Muslim:
Samira Bellil wasn't asking for trouble, but trouble came to her. She's the granddaughter of Algerian immigrants and she's written a book about surviving the hell of the Paris ghettos.
"I was gang raped by three people I knew, and I couldn't say anything, because in my culture, your family is dishonored if you lose your virginity," says Bellil. "So I kept quiet, and the rapes continued. The next time, I was pulled off a commuter train and no one lifted a finger to help me. …Everybody turned their head away. They were all looking out the window."
When Bellil's family discovered that she had been raped, they weren't sympathetic. They threw her out onto the streets. But she's since discovered that what happened to her was not the only case.
"There was a trial in Lille where a 13-year-old girl was gang raped by 80 men. Sometimes, it’s 80, or 50 or 10. It’s absolutely terrible," says Bellil. "In the case of Argenteuil, it was horrible. A young woman was raped in a school. Of course, everybody knew, but they're so afraid of these young men that they prefer to close their eyes. That's the price of peace in the ghettos."
When the verdicts came down in this case, the courthouse turned into a madhouse. Eighteen teenagers were convicted of raping a 15-year-old girl over a two-month period. But what really shocked France was how the mothers of those boys reacted.
"You call this justice, seven years in prison for some oral sex," says one mother. "It's the girl who should be behind bars."
Ah, yes: the Religion of Peace, and its progressive view of women's (and little girls') rights.
Here's a blog post that addresses the situation in Europe, with links: Pan-European Arab Muslim Gang Rape Epidemic. One of its more enlightened commentators observed:
You cristian infidel whores must accept the fact that we the chosen ones, children of the all mighty Allah obey under the rules of holy law. Any infidel woman must be cleansed of her infidelity by the means of the rape. Only through this act may server our Lord Allah. The whores of the white man are our target and rape is our tool. We will not rest untill everyone of you infidels are cleansesd of the earth as is the will of Allah. We are coming and you can't stop us for Allah is showing us the way.
Another one had this to say:
all u can burn in **** ***** *******!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!**** u christians!!!!!!!!

At another webpage, from 2001, the title tells it all -- Egypt Acquits All Muslim Murder Suspects:
Instead of convicting the Muslim murder suspects accused of killing 21 Christians in last year's El-Kosheh massacre, a judge in southern Egypt has accused the local Coptic clergy of responsibility for the three-day rampage.
In his opening statement before announcing the verdict on February 5, presiding Judge Mohammed Affify accused three priests in the predominantly Christian village of failing to put a stop to the rioting.
During the mayhem, which erupted between December 31, 1999, and January 2, 2000, twenty-one Christians were killed and 260 of their homes and businesses destroyed or looted in El-Kosheh and surrounding villages in southern Egypt's Sohag governate. The only Muslim victim was shot dead accidentally by a fellow Muslim.
Singling out Fr. Gabriel, Fr. Bessada and Fr. Isaac by name, Affify stated that the three priests "shoulder the moral responsibility for escalating the events," and urged church authorities to discipline them.
Moving right along, an article from last October from Australia Muslim Religion Blamed for Fatal Stabbing begins like this:
A RELIGIOUS feud between a Muslim father and his teenage daughter may have sparked a bloody domestic dispute on Queensland's Gold Coast which left the man's wife dead and him fighting for life in hospital.
Police are investigating suggestions the violence erupted after the 17-year-old girl told her father she wanted to opt out of the Islamic faith and convert to Christianity. The girl's mother is believed to have stepped in to protect her daughter, only to be fatally stabbed with a kitchen knife.
Neighbours reported hearing "blood-curdling" screams before the hysterical girl ran half-naked from their Southport home unit covered in scratches.
Here's a blogpost on Muslim Rape, which references Fjordman's work. The blog, called Islamic Evil, looks interesting.
Anyway, the post is getting long, and I wouldn't want to appear too islamophobic, so Google Muslim plus your choice of rape, murder, stabbing, or some other word, and see what you get.
To close, I repeat my comments with which I finish two previous posts:
At its core, Islam is evil. (from Islamic Imperialism 101)
Islam is Hell. (from Islamic Imperialism 102)
