Sharia in action in Australia: Muslims give new convert to Islam 40 lashes for drinking alcohol

Here is a clear indication that at least some Muslims in Western countries intend to bring Sharia with them and enforce it themselves. “‘I did it because I love you … you will remember this pain': lashing a punishment for drinking alcohol, court hears,” from AAP, October 22 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A Muslim man who was whipped 40 times for drinking alcohol was told to remember the pain next time he thought of picking up a drink, a Sydney magistrate has been told.

Zakaryah Raad, 21, Tolga Cifci, 21, Wassim Fayad, 44, and Cengiz Coskun, 22, faced Burwood Local Court today charged with lashing Christian Martinez, 31, with an electric cable as punishment under sharia for drinking alcohol.

The four men have pleaded not guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm and stealing CCTV footage from Mr Martinez’s apartment in Silverwater, in Sydney’s west, in the early hours of July 17 last year.

The court heard Fayad, also known as Fadi Alemaddin, carried out the alleged whipping while the three other men held Mr Martinez down on his bed.

Fayad had become Mr Martinez’s “spiritual leader” after he converted to Islam before the alleged incident, prosecutor Sevinch Morkaya said.

Mr Martinez called Fayad on the evening of the alleged event, saying he needed help after he had drunk alcohol, the court was told.

“It means I’m going to tie you up, brother,” Fayad allegedly replied.

The court heard the four men then went to Mr Martinez’s apartment and carried out the whipping, pausing twice to allow Mr Martinez to vomit.

After the 40 lashes were administered, Fayad told Mr Martinez: “I did it because I love you. Next time you think of picking up a drink, you will remember this pain”, Ms Morkaya said.

Ms Morkaya said the court hearing was not about the Islamic faith.

Of course not! They never are!

Instead, it was about the “imposing of their view of sharia law”, she said.

But Sharia does prescribe lashing of those who drink alcohol.

    This is probably the beginning…and the media is of course going to ignore these type of atrocities, whitewashing “it’s nothing to do with the Islamic faith” just like they they are saying. Wonder when they rape a girl and accuse her of adultery, then stone her to death…
    These sickos make me sick….

    (video) Sahih Bukhari Vol 8, Book 81, #771 “The Prophet lashed him because of drinking (alcohol)”
    Allah forbidds to drink alcohol (haram)

    Qur’an 5:90 “Wine, Intoxicants (alcohol) is a great sin”

    2:219 “wine is a great sin”

    Punishment in Bukhari

    Bukhari Vol. 8, Book 81 “Limits and Punishments set by Allah (Hudood)” , No. 764, 767 “The Prophet beat a drunk with palm-leaf stalks and shoes. And Abu Bakr [close companion of Muhammad & father of Aisha] gave (such a sinner) forty lashes.”

    The bigger problem is revealed through one small detail which may have escaped everyone’s notice here:

    “…prosecutor Sevinch Morkaya…”

    What is the magistrate office of Sydney, Australia doing having a prosecutor with a name like that (likely she is Turkish Muslim — but, of course, a “Moderate”)? It’s all well and good to have a robust society of many different cultures; but not in the context where one of those worldwide cultures has deadly tenets that are killing people all over the world and only augur worse to come.

    In the halcyon 1960’s I lived a few blocks from Silverwater and I went to North Auburn School. Back then the NSW Premier Jack Lang lived up the road from our house in Adderley St. In a nostalgic mood, I recently I went back to the area for a visit. It was like going to Tehran. The huge mosque near the town is imposing. There are women wearing hijabs and niqabs, and bearded men wearing those kaftans. Everywhere there are ‘halal’ signs. Auburn North School was surrounded by ladies in hijabs picking up their kids. I would not like to live there now. I would not enjoy the culture. Glad to have moved out.

    The victim’s name is “Christian Martinez”? Another idiot who didn’t realize how savage Islam was when he mouthed the Shahada.

    Perhaps Martinez was suffering from a terrible hang-over. He tried all available remedies which didn’t work and in utter desperation he snatched the Shahada pill suggested by a muzzlum medicine-man.

  6. says

    47:15 “(Here is) a Parable of the Garden which those who fear and keep their duty are promised: in it are rivers of unpolluted water; rivers of milk which the taste never changes; rivers of wine [KHAMR], a delicious joy to the drinkers; and rivers of running honey pure and clear. In it there are all kinds of fruits with pardon from their Lord.”

    The religion of piss, the promiss of 72 virgens and wine.!!!!!

    Stephanie provided key passages from the most authoritative source of hadith (Bukhari) clearly prescribing whipping for alcohol drinking.

    This is one of dozens of important reasons why it’s important for us always to stress that the problem with Islam is not merely the Koran — it’s also the hadiths. In this instance, Ms. Morkaya (the Turkish Muslim prosecutor for the Sydney, Australia magistrate) can try to buttress her argument that this incident merely reflects a Tiny Minority of Extremists who are trying to inflict their “interpretation” of sharia. Someone then will protest, “but it’s Islamic!” She can then say, doing her stealth taqiyya, “it’s not in the Koran! Show me where it is in the Koran!”

    And then, if her challenger doesn’t know about the hadiths, and how crucially important hadiths are to the mainstream Sunna which is the very heart of Islam (and there remain even Jihad Watchers laboring under this deficit to this day), he will be at a loss, and lose that round.

    Score: 1 for the Apologetic Obfuscators, 0 for the anti-Islam challengers.

    What utter crap. This whole thing is about Islam”about Shari’ah and its imposition.

    I would have assumed this was just your standard Western denial and dhimmitude, had LemonLime not pointed out that “Sevinch Morkaya” is a Turkish Muslim name. So”this may be more Taqiyya than anything else, which is even more disturbing.

    Silverwater, part of Western Sydney, is now largely Muslim.

    Australian poster Dumbledore’s Army has mentioned the nearby monstrously huge Auburn Gallipoli Mosque before, built by Turkish Muslims. Wikipedia blandly notes that “The name of the mosque reflects the legacy of Gallipoli in Turkey and the shared bond between Australian society and the Australian Turkish Muslim Community who constructed the mosque”.

    What it doesn’t note is that Gallipoli is where Australian troops were *slaughtered by Muslims*. That’s a “shared bond” that many Muslims in Australia would like to continue…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auburn,_New_South_Wales#Religious_structures

    Western Sydney’s demographics are described as follows:

    Auburn prides itself as one of the most multicultural communities in Australia. The traditionally Anglo-Celtic European population has slowly been replaced by a high percentage of immigrants from Turkish, Lebanese and Vietnamese backgrounds. Auburn also has fast growing Somali, Bosnian, Iraqi, Iranian, Afghan, Pakistani, Sudanese and Chinese communities. The five most prominent religions in Auburn are Islam (25.6%), Catholicism (19.6%), No religion (13.2%), Buddhism (6.93%) and Anglican (4.7%).

    This was the Muslim population responsible for the ugly Cronulla Riots, where Muslim thugs violently harassed Aussies on the beach.

    Case in point:

    A few articles below this one, there is a report of a Muslim journalist from Pakistan analyzing the problem of “extremism” that leads to such atrocities as the shooting of the14-year-old Afghanistani girl, and in talking about the punishment of lapidation (stoning), he tries the old “But it’s not in the Koran” argument (and tries to blame the Jews and their Torah instead):

    …the Jewish laws of that time regarding blasphemy, heresy and apostasy, not found in the Koran, are now pronounced even by small town clerics. The bigoted mullahs do not also seem to understand that these ancient laws can be misused by the enemies of Islam to cause death and disturbance.

    Spencer rightly responded:

    “These are not Jewish laws. They are Islamic laws rooted in hadiths that Muslim scholars consider authentic.”

    http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/10/muslim-writer-blames-jews-for-the-violence-in-islamic-theology.html

    This is one more reason out of thousands one could adduce why, I keep stressing, we need to be ever mindful of — and be armed with solid data to counter — the insidious “Muslims follow the Koran” obfuscation.

    gravenimage asked: “I wonder what his Muslim name is?”

    graven, probably Nassara al-Stoopid

  12. says

    probably Nassara al-Stoopid…

    Actually, I think in Arabic, when an “al” precedes certain consonants, the “l” turns into the initial letter of the following name/word.

    Thus, it would be “Nassara as-Stoopid” — also known, behind his back, as “Stoopid-Ass”.

    Hi no fear! two things I would like to tell you about Iran, I was born and raised there. it is very rare to see iranian women in Neqab, that is mainly in sunni muslim countries. second here is the best news of all: only 1 1/2% of iranians go to mosques!!! our people are fed up with islam!!!
    M

  14. says

    Yes, Sydney in the halcyon days of the sixties, when Sydney was “ours”, before we “prided” ourselves on our multiculturalism and “celebrated diversity”.
    I went past that Gallipoli mosque recently on the train. Surreal.
    This is what the hippie generation have bequeathed to their young. What hypocrites.

  15. says

    Are most Iranians, miriam rove, fed up enough with Islam to go back to Persia’s real religious heritage, Zoroastrianism, or adopt any other religion but Islam, or none? Being fed up is not enough. It’s a good start but it’s not enough. Where, in your opinion, is Iran under the tyranny of its deluded mullahs and ayatollahs headed?

    I hope it won’t be an attempt at a kinder, gentler Islam. That’s a fool’s errand. It’s got to be an exodus from Islam. Total like.

  16. says

    Hello miriam,

    I have not been to Tehran. I tried to quickly think of an Islamic place so I thought of Tehran first. Sorry for negatively referring to a place I have never seen. I do know two Iranians, I should have asked them what Tehran was like before I opened my gob.

    DDA, thanks for the link to the story. I don’t miss many stories at Jihad Watch, but I did manage to miss this one.

    Thanks for all the additional information you supplied in the comments section there, as well.

    Appalling that this is happening in civilized Australia. I hope they throw the book at them”but with a probable Muslim judge presiding, I don’t have high expectations in that regard. Here’s hoping I’m wrong.

    Gravenimage

    the *judge* (that is, in this case, the magistrate) is *not* Muslim.

    If you click on the link and read the original story, at the end of it, it says this:

    “The hearing continues before Magistrate Brian Maloney.”

    Brian Maloney is a classic Irish-Australian name. I’d be awfully surprised if *he* were a Muslim.

    ‘Sevinch Morkaya’ is *not* ‘judge’, or in this case, magistrate; she is counsel for the prosecution. The name of whoever is counsel for the defence, is not mentioned.

    Thank you, DDA. I usually try to read the linked story, but haven’t yet had time in this case.

    Of course, having a Muslim prosecutor is fairly disturbing, as well. Will she go all out to prosecute a Shari’ah case like this, or will she soft-peddle the severity of the crime?
