A few days ago I received the Tweet above from a certain Jawad Rasul. It said:
Thank You @pamelageller and @jihadwatchRS, If you have any humanity, you might ponder over this! nyp.st/phBJuX via @newyorkpost
I had no idea what the heck he was talking about. The link went to a story about a murder in New Jersey. It all comes clear here: “Police: Accused man claimed bias in wife’s killing,” from the Associated Press, August 19 (thanks to all who sent this in):
BOONTON, N.J. ““ A Pakistani-American man whose wife was gunned down while they and their son walked along a quiet suburban street plotted the killing with another woman and told police his family had been attacked by a group of men who called them terrorists, authorities said Friday.
Kashif Parvaiz, 26, suffered non-life-threatening wounds in the shooting that killed his 27-year-old wife, Nazish Noorani. They were walking with their 3-year-old son to a relative’s house in Boonton when shots rang out Tuesday night. The boy was unharmed.
Parvaiz and 26-year-old Antionette Stephen, of Billerica, Mass., both face charges of murder, conspiracy and weapons offenses. He also faces child-endangerment charges. [...]
According to Morris County Prosecutor Robert Bianchi, Parvaiz’s accounts of the attack were inconsistent and immediately raised suspicions.
Parvaiz had told investigators the couple was attacked by a different combination of black and white males who shouted ethnic slurs, authorities said. In his initial story, the group shouted something about the family being “terrorists,” authorities said.
Bianchi said investigators were deeply concerned when Parvaiz suggested it was a bias crime, but within hours “it was obvious to investigators that this was sadly the alleged handy work [sic] of the victim’s husband who allegedly did the unthinkable and plotted to murder his wife.”…
Islamic supremacists never miss a chance to position Muslims as victims so as to deflect attention away from jihad terror and try to place Islam and the Muslim community beyond reasonable scrutiny. And so even as Kashif Pervaiz was starting to equivocate and spin ever-taller tales, and even though this murder has nothing to do with Islam or jihad, the blame game began. Not only did I receive Jawad Rasul’s Tweet, but also a well-placed source told me that Ibrahim Hooper, Honest Ibe himself, of Hamas-linked CAIR was “salivating and waiting to jump all over” the Noorani murder story. “They are waiting to blame you for everything.”
I wasn”t anywhere near Boonton, New Jersey last Tuesday, so why would Rasul and CAIR want to blame me for this love triangle murder? Because in CAIR”s world, as I noted here, my work exposing the activities of Islamic jihadists and the ways in which they use Islamic texts and teachings to justify violence and supremacism constitutes “hate” and “incitement to violence.” They think they found confirmation of this in the Breivik murders. Another problem with this idea is that Breivik, in all his citations of my work, never cites me as calling for or justifying violence in any way. He cited me, apparently, to point out a problem. The problem — the threats to freedom posed by Islamic jihadists and supremacists — doesn’t go away because he is a murderer. If all ideas are discredited because someone acts violently because of them, then all Leftist mainstream media organs should close up shop. After all, the Left in power has murdered millions for socialism and other widely held ideas today.
But don’t expect consistency of thought from those blaming the counter-jihadists for the Norway murders. Their arguments fall apart on the slightest scrutiny. Their object is not ultimately to convince anyone. Their object is to demonize us and thereby shut us up, so that the jihad can proceed unchallenged.
