For several days, the media kept pushing the story of an Imam who was stabbed in his mosque, tying it to someone scribbling over a name that had Allah in it at that mosque and implying that this involved Islamphobia.
National stories at CNN and the New York Times failed to mention that the stabber was a fellow Muslim.
The man accused of stabbing a Paterson imam during morning prayers at a city mosque Sunday morning told police he wanted to kill the man over religious differences, court documents show.
During a brief virtual court appearance from the Bergen County Jail on Monday, Zorba spoke through a Turkish-language interpreter and at times appeared confused…
Immediately after his arrest, Zorba told police “he planned the attack the night prior at his home on his own due to his disagreeing with the mosque and its leader collecting money in the name of Islam,” the officer wrote.
Even when the media finally reports that this was Muslim-on-Muslim theological violence, it still can’t actually state that openly, and keeps trying to create the impression that this was an attack by a non-Muslim on a Muslim.
The stabbing occurred a day after the discovery of an act of vandalism at the Dr. Hani Awadallah School in Paterson. A vandal defaced the “allah” part of the Awadallah’s name. “Allah” means “God” in Arabic.
Allah means the Islamic deity, but that has no obvious connection to the stabbing, and whether or not it does, Zorba is a Turkish Muslim offended by the imam’s actions for Islamic reasons.
Serif Zorba, 32, had been attending prayer services at the Mevlana Cami, a mosque on Sussex Street, every day since the start of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month that began March 22, according to the vice president of that congregation, Hasan Oren…
After prayers, Zorba allegedly approached the imam and pointed at his tie, asking him, “Why are you wearing a tie? In our religion, you should not wear a tie.”
Zorba’s worldview is pretty obvious here and yet the national media won’t even touch that question.
We opened our nation to this corrupt dystopian cult and all that swills around it.
I read somewhere the other day that a muslim defaced the sign because he objected to the allah part of Dr. Hani Awadallah’s name on the sign., claiming allah shouldn’t be part of someone’s name. The left misuses the word “phobia” a lot. Phobias don’t assault, shoot, stab, or bludgeon people.
