The Hate That Almost Killed Sohana Jawed

Filed under: General — Aaron Worthing @ 1:05 pm



[Guest post by Aaron Worthing; if you have tips, please send them here.  Or by Twitter @AaronWorthing.]

I have mentioned before about how Islamofascist hate runs so deep in Palestine that it resulted in the deaths of Shalhevet Pass and Hadas Fogel, beautiful newborn infants intentionally and specifically murdered by Palestinian terrorists.  What that leaves out, though, is girls (and boys) like Sohana Jawed, of Pakistan.  Here’s a picture of her:

I am thankful to be able to report to you that she is alive and relatively well, considering what she had been through.

But she is eight years old, or nine depending on your news source.  In civilized societies she is far too young to fight, drive, smoke, vote, drink, or to have sex.

But in the eyes of the terrorists, she is the perfect age to be a suicide bomber, whether she volunteers or not:

In a first case of its kind, an eight-year-old girl was reportedly forced by terrorists to wear a suicide vest for blowing herself up at a check-post in the Lower Dir area of Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa – formerly North West Frontier Province.

However, she surrendered herself to the very police she was supposed to attack. Narrating her experience to the media, Suhana* — a Class III student — said she was kidnapped from her hometown in Peshawar by two women and a man on Sunday.

The kidnappers apparently beckoned her and when she approached them, they put a handkerchief around her nose after which she fell unconscious. Once she regained consciousness, Suhana said she was forced to wear a suicide vest and taken to the police post in Balambat area of Lower Dir.

Read the whole thing.  Or simply watch this news report:

If there is any silver lining here (I mean besides the fact that the child is alive to tell the tale), there is the fact that these people at this news station—located in Pakistan—is as horrified as most of us would be.

But not every would-be child suicide bomber would be so resistant, apparently:

The Daily Mail has the story behind that video.  Its murky in many of the details, but it’s hard to imagine a non-fraked up explanation for it.  And I have seen this sort of thing before.

Sting thought there could be peace between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. if the Russians loved their children, too.  Whatever the merits of his argument, it is clear we don’t even have that commonality between us and the Islamofascists.

Hat Tip: The Blaze.

    This begs the question why you would have ever held hope for this in the first place? Their very behavior speaks to some form of insanity.

    What have we ever seen from radicals that would cause us to believe they would ever begin to value the sanctity of life, that they will fight to protect human life – in all forms – and that their value system is based on a mutual respect for their fellow man (let alone woman)?

    They consider it a badge of honor to kill anyone who does believe as they do. All to sate the demand of a wicked deity, and the promise of the heinous and ridiculous.

    Right now, as we talk about all kinds of nonsense, women are being raped in Iranian prisons while they build nuclear weapons they absolutely intend to use.

  13. There are many Muslims living in America. Some are very assimilated and successful and Americanized, but many appear not to be. Aside from the houses of worship within their communities there are clubs, local interest TV, cafés and schools which help tie the Muslim people and their culture together. I imagine their community newspapers are usually printed in a language which is not English.

    I wish there were a way to know if such things as stonings, womens’ rights protests, child suicide bomber stories from abroad, etc. are covered at all in these American Muslim papers and shows–and if so, how they are covered.

    I’m not suggesting that many immigrants to America from Islamic cultures are radical Islamists (although unfortunately we have been introduced to a few.) But I would like to know more about how the everyday Muslim in our midst feels about these issues and about radical Islamists– and what they say to each other about such things in private. There are four or five spokespeople for American Islam who appear regularly on PBS and in the NYT and WaPo. They are mostly Academics and have pretty much set the narrative about American Muslims. Fine. But what do the cab drivers and store cashiers think.

    elissa (1bb674)

  14. Elissa, my anecdotal take on that is moderate Muslims are harshly criticized by Islamofascists and their speech is often chilled.

    They should be loudly explaining that murder and hate is not the One True Islam, but some seem intimidated into just not stirring up a hornet’s nest.

    It seems the few who do are often particularly bold. It seems to take tremendous backbone to fight this from inside the religion. However, I don’t think that explains all of it. Normal people should be provoked by stories like this. Millions of Muslims should be speaking out on behalf of eight year olds, women, etc who are need speaking for.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  15. Dustin–thanks for your input. I’m afraid your anecdotal observations suggest that it doesn’t bode very well for many modern American Muslims ever to fully assimilate as American citizens. If they are afraid to speak up for the most basic of human rights when they see them being abused (whether it’s happening here or abroad) then what does that say about their commitment to our national values? What are they teaching/modeling for their American born children?

    “Normal [Muslim] people” informed by what — modern Christian values?

    It was “normal people” who were the ancient Greek homosexuals (like in Sparta where it was mandatory for boys in the Agoge) and pederasty, flocked to the Roman Collisseum, or stonings in the Old Testament, or who kept slaves in 1860 Alabama, or voted for the Nazi party. “Normal people” hire docs to kill their own children, by the millions, in our civilisation. They’re proud of this ability.

    Humans are very … maleable. We’ll fit in with our cultures, whether that’s binding boards to babies’ heads to flatten their skills, cutting off the tips of their penises, or … apparently … letting children be suicide bombers.

    Which “normal people” within Palestinian culture are you expecting to rise up against this?

  17. Sorry for typos. On mobile.

    And I should have mentioned it was the compulsory homosexuality of the Spartans I was referring to, not homosexuality as such.

    Islamofascist hate runs so deep in Palestine

    What’s even more sickening (if that’s possible) is the variety of liberals throughout the Western World who somehow disregard such socio-political traits and instead shed tears for the (in their mind) poor, downtrodden, humble, noble, sad-sack-underdog Palestinians.

    I don’t trust anyone, left or right, who tends to be lousy at judging the good and bad in people and situations. Or who, worse of all, often transpose the two. Leftists seem to have that field sewn up.

    Mark (411533)

  19. “Normal [Muslim] people” informed by what — modern Christian values?

    Just respect for human life.

    Which I grant is better phrased as ‘moral’ than ‘normal’. Especially in the context of Palestine, where life is cheap and little is worth sticking your neck out for.

    Which “normal people” within Palestinian culture are you expecting to rise up against this

    This isn’t about my prediction, which is not so optimistic. I would rather just say 100% of them are morally obligated to do so, whether they will or not.

  20. “They should be loudly explaining that murder and hate is not the One True Islam, but some seem intimidated into just not stirring up a hornet’s nest.”

    Dustin – The problem is that the One True Islam tells them to kill unbelievers, especially Christians and Jews, unless they submit. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  21. They should be loudly explaining that murder and hate is not the One True Islam, but some seem intimidated into just not stirring up a hornet’s nest.

    The problem is that murder and hate are the One True Islam. There are very many good, peaceful, decent Moslems; but Islam is not a religion of good, peace, or decency. To the extent that Moslems, including clergy, have created a peaceful Islam, they’ve “perverted” it from anything that Mohammed would recognise. (Just as, to the extent that Xians, especially clerics, bishops, and “saints” created a bloodthirsty and Xianity, they perverted it from anything that Jesus would recognise.)

    Milhouse (ea66e3)

  22. (Just as, to the extent that Xians, especially clerics, bishops, and “saints” created a bloodthirsty and Xianity, they perverted it from anything that Jesus would recognise.)

    Milhouse – Not just as, the reverse of, when compared to Islam.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  23. No, there is no one true Islam. that’s something the fascists greatly hope the world believes.

    Mohammed was not my idea of a decent person, but the idea he preached the extermination of all who fail to submit to his views requires a leap from what he actually said and also contradicts much of what he said.

    It can be interpreted from the latter in the Quran that he is not tolerant, but that’s not a mandatory interpretation.

    I think it’s important to recognize the validity of the superior philosophy of not strapping bombs to kids or killing off Jews and Christians. Those Muslims who are good and decent are constantly bombarded by the idea they are half assing their religion when it’s really the people interpreting an insane and huge mandate that any reasonable reader of the Quran would expect to be made explicit.

  24. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.

    Comment by daleyrocks

    There are many Muslims who lie about their evil views in order to further their cause. Most of us are familiar with how Islam would permit such a lack of personal integrity. That makes it very difficult for moderate Muslims to preach a better view. A) they could be killed B) no one believes them anyway.

    Islam is a fundamentally stupid religion, cobbled together by an idiot who was great at whining in a way that inspired those whose lives suck.

    The best way to beat Islam is to get these people optimistic about their future.

  25. Sand Nazis are truly nithings.

    Islam is a fundamentally stupid religion, cobbled together by an idiot who was great at whining in a way that inspired those whose lives suck.

    So how would you prove that Islam is false?

  26. “No, there is no one true Islam. that’s something the fascists greatly hope the world believes.”

    Dustin – You used the phrase. Why use it if there is no such thing. The core documents of the faith, the Koran, etc., say what both Milhouse and I indicated.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  27. How to prove God didn’t ask a pedophile illiterate to write down a revelation for mankind?

    The truth should break any Muslim’s faith.

    How to prove one interpretation of Islam beats another, when Muhammad himself said much of what he said came from the devil and had to be changed? Impossible.

    What we need is to annihilate the sand Nazis. A good start is to order the summary execution of any sand Nazi terrorist who is captured, and their corpses publicly displayed.

    It was unfortunate that Bin Laden’s corpse was not put on public display at Ground Zero.

    Michael Ejercito (64388b)

  29. “So how would you prove that Islam is false?”

    Michael Ejercito – I would argue that Mohammad was not a prophet.

  30. Why use it if there is no such thing.

    Oh. My bad. I’m mocking the concept of ‘one true Islam’ which is a concept I encounter from Islamofascists.

    Dustin (c16eca)

  31. What we need is to annihilate the sand Nazis.

    Well, most Muslims of them are objectively not trying to kill us. There are hundreds of times more Muslims than there are US Soldiers, after all. But I think you might just be talking about the Islamofascists.

    We can’t just kill all Muslims, even the ones who are just bowing towards Mecca after their morning tea, with not a violent intention at all. We shouldn’t. In fact, I think one of the best things happening in the world is when such people are elevated to a better way of life than Sharia and submission.

    A good start is to order the summary execution of any sand Nazi terrorist who is captured, and their corpses publicly displayed.

    I agree with this. We need to be harsh with terrorists captured on a battlefield. Gitmo indeed should be closed because we are only keeping high intel value terrorists alive long after they are captured.

    While I don’t want war against Islam, I do want absolute war against any countries that support terrorism. Iraq is working, but we can’t hope to keep that up for a generation or in many countries. It’s not even possible. As awful as it is, I think absolute war would be a better long term way of dealing with countries like Iran (which is a country I actually care a lot about).

  33. I think it’s important to recognize the validity of the superior philosophy of not strapping bombs to kids or killing off Jews and Christians.

    That is indeed a superior philosophy, but it isn’t Islam.

    Those Muslims who are good and decent are constantly bombarded by the idea they are half assing their religion

    Except that that is exactly what they are doing.

    when it’s really the people interpreting an insane and huge mandate that any reasonable reader of the Quran would expect to be made explicit.

    Not considering the sort of life the author led. On the contrary, to claim that a highwayman preached a doctrine of peace and goodwill toward all, a doctrine that he himself did not keep, seems like a huge stretch that a reader who isn’t fooling himself would expect to made explicit. Since Mohammed’s own actions are the example that all Moslems are expected to look to for guidance, an honest look at his life must inform any interpretation of how he intended his teachings to be understood. Just as an honest look at the way Jesus led his life (to the very minimal extent that we can guess at it) must inform any interpretation of how he intended his teachings to be understood. Not to put too fine a point on it, Jesus didn’t go around slaughtering people, so it’s reasonable to suppose that he disapproved of that sort of thing; Mohammed did go around slaughtering people, so it’s not reasonable to make the same supposition in his case.

    The question is how to convey this to the 80% of so of Moslems who are decent peace-loving people, and who desperately want to believe that their religion approves of that. We don’t want them to change; we don’t want to be at war with them. So long as they’re willing to follow a peaceful “reformed” Islam we should play along with the charade; but we have to be honest with ourselves about what it is that we’re doing.
