Buddhist Killer Pardoned by Muslim Victim’s Family

This is a story you wont see on JihadWatch:

Buddhist Killers Pardoned by Muslim Victim’s Family

Relatives of a Muslim Sri Lankan worker murdered by his Buddhist colleague in Abu Dhabi told court they have decided to pardon the killer, prompting the judge to bring forward hearings for sentence.

An official from the Sri Lankan embassy in Abu Dhabi handed the pardon document from the victim’s relatives to court on Tuesday, the semi official Arabic language daily Alittihad said.

“They just pardoned the Buddhist killer without demanding any diya (blood money) taking into consideration that the killer’s family is poor,” it said.

It said the pardon prompted the judge to bring forward hearings to February 27 to issue a sentence after they were scheduled for June.

Imagine if the Buddhist killer had been Muslim and the Muslim victim been Buddhist, who doubts Spencer would link the killing to Islam, relating it to jihad or some other convoluted made up theology that only exists in the feverish mind of Sheikh Spencer?

Instead, Spencer chooses to focus on another story reported in the same article, about a man who murdered a European woman he was paying for sex. The man murdered her and then went to pray, which certainly is odd (and proves more about his lack of conscious than any link to religion), but the fact that Spencer would try to relate it to Islam is just plain sick yet not surprising.

For Spencer this is another opportunity to denigrate Muslims and Islam while also trying to link the killing to “honor killings” and “jihad.”

Spencer writes in a post titled, Dubai: Muslim murders woman, then goes to mosque to pray,

We have seen this phenomenon in the past with some honor murderers and jihadists: they apparently believe that they have done something pleasing to Allah, and so are almost serene after the murders.

    @beliving athiest…

    Why dont you comment on the story itself, rather than trying to turn the topic to a place where you can continue your anti religious rhetoric.

    What happened in Afganistan, I doubt was ‘scripted’ or planned. However it shows a pattern of the occupiers disrespect for the people of Afganistan, a pattern of minimising thier very lives for the sake of a coersed democracy.

    So, you are right…it was ‘a mistake’, like the ‘mistake’ that murdered 24 people in thier own homes in Haditha Iraq, or the ‘mistake’ that killed 17 people in a traffic circle in Baghdad.

    Maybe it is like the ‘mistake’ that in Pakistan murdered 8 people sleeping in thier home in the middle of the night, or the little oppsey that killed a boy doing his chores, or helping his father irrigate this field.

    The worst thing about these ‘mistakes’ is…the sentance is, 30 days in jail and a reduction in pay for the offender.

    So you can see how the ‘apologies’ are alittle thin here, simply words, but no corrective measures to keep them from happening again. So we can assume that the mistake really was…that it made it to the public forum.

    When the Islamophobes bring up such stories as the man who killed the ‘sex worker’ because he accused her of stealing money, shoot thier own arguement that this is ‘allowed in Islam’ by even reporting the story.

    The only reason we know about the story is because the murderer was ARRESTED in a Muslim nation, and according to the article the criminal was sentanced to execution.

    So…ask the Islamophobe…if murder was condoned in Islam, why was the man sentanced to execution in a Muslim majority nation.

    Then too…we are asking too much from them, like rational thinking.

    A Muslim kills a non-Muslim = “Islam is evil, Muslims are evil, my butt hurts”

    A Non-Muslims kills a Muslims = “He had it coming, who cares?, my butt still hurts”

    ….And THAT, My fellow Loonwatchers, is how Islamophobes see the world.

    Again I don’t know where to put this. But Muslim Uncle Tom (or I should say Aunty Asra) becomes an apologist for the recent Quran Burnings in Afghanistan. She says:

    “The latest incident was a “mistake,” Allen said. That’s believable. An intentional disregard for culture? I doubt it, considering the way spokespeople from the U.S. military to the Obama administration have been trying to apologize for the offense. This is not an offense that was scripted.”

    Latest Islamophobic news everybody. Again I don’t know where to put this so I have to put it here and hope it goes through.

    Tucker Carlson wants the genocide of Muslims in Iran.

    I quote from Think Progress:
    “CARLSON: I think we are the only country with the moral authority […] sufficient to do that. [The U.S. is] the only country that doesn’t seek hegemony in the world. I do think, I’m sure I’m the lone voice in saying this, that Iran deserves to be annihilated. I think they’re lunatics. I think they’re evil.
    Carlson, having called for the annihilation of Iran — a country with a population of over 74 million people — went on to acknowledge that “we should assess what will happen to the price of energy were we to do that.” Watch the clip:”

    There is also a video. Watch the video. I hope this gets reported on Lonwatch.

    @Garibaldi

    I can imagine why Spencer would not report on this story. It doesn’t exactly fit his agenda, now does it?

    Loonwatch, you should be happy Spencer is giving Islamophobia the bad name it deserves!

    The only problem with posting this to JW is that you need a typepad account or the equivalent… If I remember from the last time I posted over there (eons ago), typepad requires a bank number to create an account.

    Lets spam this article on Jihadwatch! I’m really itching to find out how many I can get banned from.

  • JT

    Spencer only reports things he can blame on Islam. I can’t believe his followers still think of him as a scholar.
