Iraq: “Morality police” stone to death at least 90 young men for “emo” appearance

The number of dead and the brutality of their deaths are staggering, and almost beyond belief. But the report has been picked up by major news organizations, including the Daily Mail.

One of the starkest differences between the values we defend and the sort of society which Islamic supremacists would inflict on us is in the value of human life. On dismal display here is how cheap human life is once it has forfeited its access to protection on incredibly flimsy pretexts: apparently human life has value until it steps out of line. Then, all bets are off.

Sharia consistently fails to perform as it is advertised to Western audiences on the protection of human rights. “Dozens of Iraqi teenagers stoned to death for “˜emo” haircuts: activists,” from Al Arabiya, March 10 (thanks to Atlas Shrugs):

Iraqi activists sounded the bell over the killing of dozens of teenagers by religious police for having “emo” haircuts.

Activists told the Cairo-based al-Akhbar daily that at least 90 Iraqi teenagers with “emo” appearances have been stoned to death by the Moral Police in the country in the past month. The violent crackdown against “emo” Iraqi teenagers came after the Iraqi interior ministry declared them as “devil worshippers.

“The “˜Emo phenomenon” or devil worshiping is being probed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate it as soon as possible since it’s detrimentally affecting the society and becoming a danger,” according to a statement by the interior ministry.

“They wear strange, tight clothes that have pictures on them such as skulls and use stationery that are shaped as skulls. They also wear rings on their noses and tongues, and do other strange activities,” the statement added.

The statement said that Iraq’s Moral Police was granted approval by the Ministry of Education to enter Baghdad schools and pinpoint students with Western appearances.

The activists told the newspaper that a group of armed men dressed in civilian clothing led the teenagers to secluded areas a few days ago, stoned them to death, and then disposed their bodies in garbage dumpsters across the capital, Baghdad.

“First they throw concrete blocks at the boy”s arms, then at his legs, then the final blow is to his head, and if he is not dead by then, they start all over again,” one person who managed to escape told the daily.

The exact death toll remains unclear, but Hana al-Bayaty of Brussels Tribunal, an NGO dealing with Iraqi issues, said the current figure ranges “between 90 and 100.”

Activists said that leaflets were distributed in Baghdad warning teenagers from donning the “emo” style, and in some regions, teenage homosexuals were killed by battering their heads also by concrete blocks.

    Iraqi’s “religious” (aka Shariah) police are now at war with teenage rebellion? So much for supporting a “secular” Muslim country. When will we realize that an Islamic democracy with an Islamic constitution means enforcement of Shariah law which means the antithesis of those inalienable rights and freedoms recognized by the U.S. Constitution? The global jihad and Leftist Liberal Progressive (supremacist) elitist empty rhetoric simply ignores the polarization, but we should not.

    There has been a dramatic increase in hate crime prosecutions since 2006 in the UK. Apparently some 13,276 people came before the UK courts for such crimes in 2010-11. The Crown Prosecution Service said many had involved assaults or verbal abuse. Note you can now get prosecuted and go to jail for “verbal abuse”. Apparently at what point does freedom of expression become verbal abuse in the UK that can find you behind bars or does it matter who it is directed at, the prosecution rate is at 80 percent? The UK is clearly lost to an ever increasing political correctness in a once proud country that has lost its way, and fails to protect its culture. It is allowing sharia courts everywhere and it bends to the aggressive Islamist like Anjem Choudary at every turn.

    In the end what Western Country will defend its culture,its laws, it foundations against the ever increasing threat that is the not so stealth jihad anymore in the EU Countries?

    America needs to learn from what is happening to Eurabia day after day over the past 35 years.

    Incidents like this and the murderous Afghan Muslim zombies angry over inadvertent Koran burnings just highlite how hopeless these barbaric Muslim nations are. So we gave all that blood & treasure so Iraq could have a “morality police” force that can freely go about murdering youths at will for the way they look. That’s your democratic nation building, W. Bush, that you sucks us into. Happy, Bush?

    Should be condemned by the Obama administration but how many people will ever even hear of it? Besides, Obama wants us to respect Islam, which, of course, the “morality police” easily use to justify this slaughter.

    This is what shocks me perhaps most of all.

    These were not “insurgents” or some illegal Jihadist militia”this was a group *sanctioned by the Iraqi government*.

    I keep a pretty close eye on these matters, and I didn’t even know Iraq had a “Moral Police”. This would be appalling enough in any case in a supposed “democracy” that we have given so much to set up.

    But these creeps weren’t satisfied with fining scofflaws for “malveiling” or wearing goatees, but went straight to *stoning kids to death*.

    My God.

    “Campaign of Iraqi gay killings by smashing skulls with concrete blocks”

    “…The first killings took place on the sixth of February 2012 and continued or rather escalated till the current days. One of the hanged lists in Al-Sadr city included the names and addresses of 33 person, while other lists included other tens of names in other areas.

    The attacks on young gay men seem to be by “Shia militias”, but their methods of murder are *exactly* like those of the “Moral Police”, so they may well be the same perpetrators.

    News Flash, Iraqi pedophile flees to canada in 2001 and then rapes 9 year old child to emulate muhammad.
    BUT, in canada as long as we DON’T have Shariah law to sanction the pedophilia, it’s a Crime.

    Except read how this Taqqiyah weasel blames the child he raped and then uses the Future-PSTD ( Nidal’s excuse for his jihad) id he’s deported back to iraq because his mom will have a heart attack and die if she findds out he emulated muhammad and rape a child.

    NADIA MOHARIB | QMI AGENCY

    CALGARY — Showing no remorse and blaming the child he was convicted of repeatedly raping, a man (Code for Muslim) protested bids by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to have him removed from the country.
    But CBSA officials at Thursday’s hearing pushed to have Khatab Ismail, who was ordered deported last year, removed.
    Ismail was handed a seven-year sentence in 2008 for repeated sex attacks on a young boy who told his father about the abuse while reading the biblical tale of Sodom and Gomorra.
    Provincial court Judge Sandy Hamilton, in handing down the sentence, said the assaults inflicted on the boy — who suffered the assaults between the ages of seven and nine — left him psychologically scarred and twice trying suicide.
    “This case … presents itself as a portrait of the devastating consequences of child sexual abuse,” Hamilton told court.
    Ismail was convicted of sexual contact with a minor after courts rejected his “illogical and preposterous” claim DNA found in the boy’s rectum likely got there when the child laid on his bed.
    The child is not related to Ismail but often visited his home.
    CBSA hearing officer Nathalie Holden said he needs to be detained given he poses a public danger and is unlikely to appear for removal.

    Justice officials felt the registered child sex offender’s chances of rehabilitation were slim, that Ismail denies any wrongdoing and although he took English lessons while in custody did not take counselling or rehabilitation, instead blaming his victim, the hearing heard.

    Ismail, who was accompanied by a Kurdish interpreter but no lawyer, said he would be in danger if returned to Iraq and his mother will have a heart attack when she learns of the news.
    A permanent resident, he came to Canada in 2001 as a protected person ( refugee as most scam artists claim to be).
    He finished his jail term on March 6 and been in CBSA custody since.

    Officials wanting him removed from Canada have to prove the danger he poses to society here outweighs any dangers he faces if returned to Iraq.

    He was ordered detained until next hearing March 14.

    There has yet to be just one pro-deportation rally to agree to send this pedophile packing before he rapes more canadian children.
    And this is why I believe that Toronto and Ontario canada seems to have Judges and Lawyers that will NOT denouce pedophilia and Child-abuse because it would mean a certain death-Sentence by the islamic-supremacy thugs that agree with Iran’s child-brides or pedophilia in general. The previous mayor of Toronto allowed this child-abuse and quasi-Pedophilia on our streets because of the fear for muslims and tamil Tiger supporters that riots and loot
    for any reason. The racism and bigotry of Lowered-Expectations applies to muslims,tamils,gays,Unions,non-whites and any minority new to canada that wants to steal and cheat welfare as the new ROMA-scam for bogus refugees is in full swing sicne the EU went down the tubes.

    Here’s another article from last year where Muslims were “Shocked, shocked I tell you” when a Imam was arrested for child-abuse and sexual assault on up to 13 children so far.
    http://www.torontosun.com/2011/08/17/toronto-imam-charged-in-sex-case

    The Police and MSM had a serious problem when the Pedophile was named Muhammad and was listed as a Imam because even if they tried to whitewash the case as a man the raped children….the Title “Imam” and the name Muhammad pretty well excluded jews and Christian males.

    The Danforth Mosque is in the pro-taliban Afgan Muslim area I had spoke about in the past, these Afghans had endorsed the Taliban when they smashed the Budhist Statues pre-9/11 .
    But on 9/11/2001 when their Muslim brothers slaughtered
    24 candians among the 3000 dead….these weasels denied any ties to the Taliban and then wrapped themselves in the canadian Falg to denounce all forms of violence and that they had NOTHING to do with the Taliban.
    The CBC had the nerve to give Media time to these terrorist supporters who then said they were victims of racism and anti-muslim bigotry as they saw the non-muslim shoppers vanish from their shops on danforth.

    Islam is amamzing, pedophilia is blamed on the child that is the victim, terrorism by muslims is blamed on islamophobia even when muslims kill muslims, they go nuts if a mosque or quran is damage but stay mute when 4 females are drowned in canada via Shariah laws Honour-murders, they bash israel while in gaza we see hamas murdering gays and using kids as suicide-bombers.

    I hope the near 6’000’000’000 non-muslims see how dangerous the 1 billion+ followers are of a homicidal maniac prophet that was a homophobic/misogynistic/pedophile
    warrior that wants global domination as muslims as the Super-race destine to rule the Earth for allah.
    CAIR can no longer excuse away the current violence and mass-slaughters by muslims as minor acts of violence by criminals or the FEW misunderstanders of the peaceful Quran
    and peacefull teachings from muhammed.

    The sheer odds for all these acts of Terrorism by guys named Muhammad or Ahmed which is said to have NOTHING to do with islam or the quran….is beyond the Big-Lie taqqiyah and will not go on being believed by the MSM as they cringe and squirm to hide the words Imam or Muhammed from the reports.

    BTW

    The pedophile in Calgary….that’s the same City that the Whahhists in saudi Arabia are pouring millions into to build the Mega-Mosque which I assume is a land-grab for the future sicne mosques can NOT be used for anything else for the rest of time.
    The Mayor of Calgary is also a muslims that gave the boot to afew Christians that Occupied City land to sing Christmas songs, this islamofascist allowed the radical leftists to break the laws and do drugs …..but when a group of non-muslims wanted the same Rights….the Muslioms mayor sent in the Brown-Shirt SS wing of the islamic supremacy thugs to kick them off the property.

    How strange that another peaceful muslims runs for Office about how he faith won’t dictate his treatment of non-muslim incanada. Then , once in power he bows to his Whahhabi masters and tried to impose Sjhariah Law by-proxy on candian soil.
    Time to dust off the Treason Law and show these muslim fascists the door back to any utopic islamic hell-hole they pine for.

    Bush was correct in taking out a megalomaniac like Saddam Hussein. Where Bush erred was in believing that democracy could be put in place in an Islamic country. Islamic nations can essentially have only one of two governments, either an authoritarian government in the mold of Ataturk’s Turkey or Mubarak’s Egypt, or an Islamic regime run by devout Muslims. The first is not so good, and a far cry from anything truly free, but the second is definitely worse and, unlike the first, is a threat, or at least an annoyance, often times to non-Muslim areas of the world. Such is the sad and pathetic fate which Islam insures for any nation where this sad-sack excuse of a religion is dominant. It should never be forgotten, never overlooked, that the ultimate reason for the desultory state of any Islamic nation is Islam itself.

  8. says

    No truly democratic, or civilized, country would do this. The flaw in our Iraq strategy was in not taking into account the fundamental incompatibility of democracy with Islam.
    A true liberation of Iraq would involve a de-islamization program, something we are not prepared to do.
    As it is, as long as Islam prevails, it will constantly be at war with its perceived enemies, such as totally innocent youths who have the misfortune of living in a country run by devils.

  9. says

    What Bush should’ve said:

    Islam, as it is a religion of individuals, is not to be interfered with. Islam, however, insofar as it is directed by governments, and as a measure enforced from above by any government, is to be done away with. People [will] not be taxed to support Islam and there will be no place for Islam in the schools. Islam as a state religion”National Islam, that is”will go . . . Our policy on this goes beyond Islam . . . The dissemination of Islamic militaristic ideology in any form will be completely suppressed. Middle Eastern Governments will be required to cease financial and other support of Islamic establishments.

    The byrnes telegram after WWII defeat of Japan:

    “Shintoism, insofar as it is a religion of individual Japanese, is not to be interfered with. Shintoism, however, insofar as it is directed by the Japanese government, and as a measure enforced from above by the government, is to be done away with. People would not be taxed to support National Shinto and there will be no place for Shintoism in the schools. Shintoism as a state religion”National Shinto, that is”will go . . . Our policy on this goes beyond Shinto . . . The dissemination of Japanese militaristic and ultra-nationalistic ideology in any form will be completely suppressed. And the Japanese Government will be required to cease financial and other support of Shinto establishments.”

    as America is the great Satan for Iran it is clear that

    If you wish to conduct a scatological study of the most common barnyard fowl, study the Iraqi authorities. These authorities can hunt down and execute high school kids who sport strange haircuts,clothing, music and ways but otherwise have no interest in destroying their nation or anything else.

    These same authorities seem a tad reluctant to hunt down the other odd ducks, the strange men who have five fingers of beard, wear man-dresses and actually cultivate a interest in destroying the nation as it stands now and everthing else.

  13. says

    Ah, but be ye not fooled. According to the leader of the “free world”, Islam is a religion that “reaffirms peace and justice, and fairness and tolerance.” I am sure that if Barack Obama had his teleprompter ready, he would have remembered to include “forgiveness” as well. Yes, the Islamists that plan to eradicate Christianity, the masses that riot and murder over burnt Qur’ans, the mobs that desecrate non-Muslim graves, burn down churches, attack Christians homes, destroy Christian businesses, the Muslim Brotherhood that vows to kill all Jews, the stadium of soccer spectators that cries out in unison for a new holocaust, the call by Iran’s leadership and the masses to destroy Israel and annihilate the Jews, the overall Christian Persecution that is “coursing through Muslim-majority nations from one end of the globe to the other’, yes, this is merely the tiny minority. We cannot hear the outcry of the majority, simply because their silence is so deafening …

  14. says

    Surely there must be a mistake. The religion of peace would never consider something so evil. Because the religion of peace is always the innocent victim, and not the aggressor.

    How can anyone be so ignorant to believe that Islam is always the innocent victim? I would say, either such people are mentally challenged, or extremely ignorant. Possibly both.

    I’m ashamed of the U.S. legislators for being so naive to think that Islam is the religion of peace, after all that has happened these last 40 years.All of them should be inprisoned for treason.

    Lets look at the facts starting with the UN that has only Sanctioned 2 Wars since its inception while there have been over 150 that included massive slaughters and genocides not big enough to care about I assume.
    The UN gave us the Korean Peace-Agreement in 1953 that grew to a Nuclear Threat when we could have dealt with the Communist all at once since they can’t be re-educated about Human Rights and Morals. The Kuwait Gulf War-1 was attacked as too harsh because Airborn fighters killed the rapists and thieves trying to flee from their slaughtering spree…and this is odd because people now cry for the USA to get envolved in Wars but get out of other wars as if the Peaceniks are 4 years to earlier for a genocide and 4 years to late during genocides.
    Now lets deral with iraq because saddam was murdeirng up to 5000 civialns a month and many nation like the USA were attack for supplying WMD’s as on record for the sale of them to Iraq.
    We saw 16 U.N. Resolutiuons for saddam to disarm
    (those WMD’s he didn’t have, remember the MSM post liberation) and this while Hans Blix could not deny the WMD’s nor Confirm the destruction of them ( typical UN stance ) which made poeple assume they still existed.
    Then comes 9/11 where Muslims attacked the West and slaughtered civilians form over 60 Nationalities to send a message to the 6 billion non-muslims that NO ONE is safe no matter where they live because Allah promised Muslim Victory as the super-race.

    So….you’re the President on 9/11/2001 , you now have the Taliban endorsing Global Jihad and Terrism to non-muslims, saddam slaughtering his own people as a rate of 5000 per month and hanging adulters form lightpoles as an example to other females,saddam using dead children as props in bogus attacks by the USA at which they go back into the Cooler until the next faux-crisis .
    Foreget about 9/11 for now, saddam boasted about how nuts he was and murdered a near 60’000 civilains a year as if it’s a badge of Honour in the Arab world. He would gladly harbour Terrorists and use non-muslims as human shields to surround the mosques where weapons are stored.

    Afghan looks like it will always be a hell-hole run by bearded losers with yellow teeth and a lust for child sex fron both genders, so cut the losses and get out.
    But as for iraq, the Western media has a strange romance with thugs and mass-murderers like Castro and Che Guevera or Hanoi-jane’s misguided sympathy for the Communists she embraced . But now they portray the Taliban as victims and that saddam didn’t have WMD’s when the same yahoo’s protested the USA selling them to saddam along with France and Germany that now pretend they didn’t.

    Oh, and I love the big-lie that 1’000’000 people ahve died in Iraq sicne the invasion.
    The records can only prove that about 60’000 have died but they DO NOT exclude the natural deaths from old people
    or those in the farm lands away from the major Hospital….plus when you filter-out the muslims murdering muslims, this is no doubt one of the wars with very few deaths for how long it is going on.

    From now on the islamic nations that implode into a Shariah law Caliphate run by thugs and the Brotherhood will have to wear this one as an islamic/muslim problem because there is nobody else to blame for the Arab Spring farce to spread Peace by the gun and enshrine Shariah on evryone as muslim slaughter christians and jews.

    One thing this might do: it might grab the attention of emo kids **in the free world**, and cause them to realize that there’s something nasty about Islam.

    This story caught the attention of my 14 year old daughter when I drew it to her attention.

    (She’s not an ’emo’ but she’s familiar with the phenomenon).

    Jihadwatchers, if you have contact in your social circle with kids of the right age – the Generation Y and Generation Z – and especially if *you* have an ’emo’ niece/ nephew/ child/ grandchild/ godchild/ pupil…

    **text them this story**. Send them the link and other related links.

    And let’s hope that via the marvels of google, we may have a few hundreds or even thousands of ’emo’ kids lurking here at jihadwatch and reading over our shoulders, *right now even as I am typing this*.

    Sooo – assuming that this is so — kids, **this is Islam, Islam, Islam, Islam**. This is what Islam does to people. Stick around here. Browse the archives – I suggest googling ‘jihad watch’ and search terms ‘child brides’ or ‘honor killings’ or ‘homosexuals’.

    And I also suggest you look up Marjane Satrapi ‘Persepolis’ (graphic novel) and Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s little film ‘Submission’. Another film? – ‘The Stoning of Soraya M’.

    Oh … Bush is to blame, eh? One wonders if this would have happened had Barry Hussein not decreed that we must scurry for the exits, the better for him to declare himself a great peace-maker.

    Withal, it is clear that both sides of the American political spectrum have been far too respectful of Islam and its savage mores. They could all take a lesson from Gen. Sir Charles James Napier of the British army (back when Great Britain was indeed “great”), who declared, regarding the Indian custom of suttee (casting widows onto the funeral pyres of their late husbands):

    Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.

    Also:

    The best way to quiet a country is a good thrashing, followed by great kindness afterwards. Even the wildest chaps are thus tamed.

    Bush’s error was not in invading (Iraq is an islamic cesspool anyways).

    The error was in invading and not enforcing strict separation between mosque and state. It is as if after defeating Japan in WWII we let them continue worshipping the emperor and declaring that the Japanese are the best of humans. I mean they can do it in private but not as part of government funded activities.

    While I did not agree with all Bush’s policies, at least Bush was a well-meaning man whose love for this country as it was when he took the oath of office was beyond doubt. The same can not be said for the mean-spirited and vindictive Manchurian Candidate for the Mullahs currently in office who ideologically despised this country as it was on the day he took the oath of office and has been hell-bent for the last 3 years on fundamentally transforming it, i.e. subverting it to the one-world government crowd.

    At least, Bush meant well and wanted to do whatever was necessary to keep this country safe but was ignorant about Islam and was misled by Muslim Brotherhood agents who had convinced him that Islam was really a religion of peace. Obama, on the other hand, believes that the Islamic call to prayer is the most beautiful sound in the world. Obama didn’t need Muslim Brotherhood agents to mislead him, because, in my opinion, Obama either is one or might as well be one.

    Wow, ala sux, that story is horrifying.
    Are child predators targeted for “retaliation” (beatings, branding, torture, rape by other prisoners) in Canadian prisons as they are in US prisons? I certainly hope so.

  22. says

    It’s the futile attempt to build a democratic nation after knocking out Saddam Hussein that I blame Bush for – a waste of so much blood & treasure. These are Muslim lands and IMO as long as they are Islamic they are hopeless as regards respecting human rights and therefore hopeless at real democracy.

    That’s a chilling line, Midnightwather, and very telling.

    I read an utterly insane story the other day re the Qur’an burnings in Afghanistan.

    “Koran Burning: It’s Not Afghans’ #1 Concern”

    Despite what you may be hearing and seeing, the vast majority of Afghans are not bothered by the accidental burning of Korans by US troops. They have more important issues to worry about.

    The violent reaction against the burning has drawn universal media coverage ” the actual feelings of most Afghans less so…

    (I can’t link to this story directly”it displays my full name. If you are interested in reading more, google “Care2″ then the headline)
    ….

    It then goes on to talk about Afghans concern about the economy and other comparative inconsequentials.

    What it does not even touch on is how Afghans regard their savage coreligionists going on homicidal rampages and butchering people, which you’d think might be a salient topic.

    It’s similar in Iraq. If anywhere outside Dar-al-Islam you found the case of ninety innocuous school kids being taken out and *stoned to death* for having funny haircuts, and further found that the perpetrators were *government employees* acting in an official capacity, you would have an outraged scandal of society-wide proportions.

    Will this happen in Iraq? I’d say it has about the same chances of happening there as outrage over the butchery done in the name of Islam in Afghanistan. In other words, none at all…

    I’m ashamed of the U.S. legislators for being so naive to think that Islam is the religion of peace, after all that has happened these last 40 years. All of them should be inprisoned for treason.

    You mean, after all that has happened these last 1,403 years and counting. Nobody in the West reads a good reliable history book these days, and nobody ever stops to think about how former Christian, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist lands became Islamic. Political correctness is the bane of our society at every level, and because of this, we haven’t had a Western statesman in a prominent position of power who has known anything or dared to be honest about Islam for 60 years. All they have come out with is inane flowery wishful thinking “can’t we all just get along” rhetoric which as been so fashionable since the 1960s. Winston Churchill was the last of that breed to hold the reins of power, and it was way back in 1953 when he was last Prime Minister.

    You mean, after all that has happened these last 1,403 years and counting. Nobody in the West reads a good reliable history book these days, and nobody ever stops to think about how former Christian, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist lands became Islamic.
