Remember the case of the 11-year-old girl charged with blasphemy against Islam that captivated the world?
From Jihad Watch, here’s the next phase of the case.
A blasphemy case took a bizarre turn here on Saturday when police arrested Khalid Jadoon, a prayer leader who had allegedly put some pages of the holy Quran among the burnt papers to strengthen the case against a Christian girl. The witness said he tried to stop the cleric from tampering with the evidence, but he insisted it would strengthen the case and lead to eviction of the girl’s family from the locality.
As usual, the only blasphemy here was committed by a Muslim cleric. And that’s not the first time this has happened. Remember those Danish cartoons that infuriated Muslims so badly? Some of them weren’t Danish cartoons, they were Muslim cartoons.
One of three especially inflammatory but undocumented Muhammad images distributed by a Danish imam as an example of an “anti-Muslim environment” in the European country turns out to be a poorly reproduced copy of an Associated Press photo taken at a French pig-squealing contest.
Abu Laban, leader of the Islamic Society of Denmark, took the images on a tour of the Middle East in December to rally support for his protest against the newspaper and Danish government. Tour spokesman Akhmad Akkari explained the three drawings had been added to “give an insight in how hateful the atmosphere in Denmark is towards Muslims.”
Akkari claimed he didn’t know the origin of the three images, saying they had been sent anonymously to Danish Muslims. But he rejected a request by the Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet to speak with the people who supposedly received them.
Imam-manufactured blasphemy against Islam is commonplace which tips over the lie of organic outrage. This isn’t even natural outrage, it’s craftily manufactured outrage to create violence and hate against Christians, whether in Denmark or in Pakistan.
It’s time for the West to stop taking Muslim outrage at face value and start looking for the Imam pulling the strings behind the curtain.
