The good news is that this father was jailed in New Zealand. He was not dealt with lightly by authorities who feared being branded a racist or Islamophobe, as has happened in Britain.
One may logically argue in this particular case that there are cruel and abusive fathers of every creed and race, but what makes this case significant beyond mainstream domestic abuse is Kiimatangiroa Junior Samuel’s readiness to illustrate to his young son a practice that is widely implemented globally when Islam is considered to have been disrespected or blasphemed: murder or severe punishment for blasphemy or for offending Islam.
This jihadist father took deep personal offence at what he considered to be disrespectful behavior by his young son at a mosque, and he also struck terror into his other children who were forced to be witnesses. In Western culture, such cruelty, particularly done in the name of a religion, is inconceivable, but this father demonstrated a culture of death and abuse that motivates jihadists.
Many Muslim children are steeped in such a culture. For example: Palestinian kindergarten children held a shocking “graduation ceremony with small children performing military-style terrorist drills”; and U.N.-sponsored summer camps teach and encourage Palestinian children to destroy Israel.
The West has grown accustomed to jihadist abuse against Israel, infidels (including infidel children) and apostates, but not against a young child for disrespecting his own religion. This father is reminiscent of the perpetrators of honour violence against young daughters for bringing dishonour and shame to the family.

A Muslim man who laughed over his trembling five-year-old son as his family prepared for the boy’s ‘execution’ claims he was teaching him honesty.
Kiimatangiroa Junior Samuel, 41, from Hastings, New Zealand made his son collect a hammer and kneel on white sheets so he could be ‘executed’ for running around a mosque during prayer time on February 26 this year.
A court heard Samuel made his other children aged seven, nine and 10 collect sheets to stop the blood from the execution ‘getting on the floor’,Stuff reported.
Once the execution had been set up the 41-year-old man told his older children to ‘look away so you don’t see all the blood’.
The five-year-old cried as he was made to close his eyes, before his father laughed out loud at the scene.
The man told the court he never intended on carrying out the death threat.
Judge Max Courtney said it was ‘the cruellest set of facts I have ever come across’ before sentencing him to four-and-a-half years behind bars for threatening to kill……..
