During a media interview just one year ago, a Muslim woman claimed she would “replace hatred with love.” However, the same woman the media praised was recently arrested when cops discovered her unspeakably gruesome secret in her home.
Despite the left exhaustively proclaiming that Islam is the religion of peace, there is no global Muslim campaign for peace to stop the so-called terrorist hijacking of their ideology. In fact, instead of a mission for love and tolerance, the supposed “tiny minority of extremists” are spreading oppression, violence, and jihad worldwide, and are succeeding in fulfilling the Quran’s command to “kill the unbelievers” until “there is no more disbelief” in the world.
Of course, while the Quran is their primary source of incitement of violence, another contributing factor that is rarely ever discussed is the Islamic community’s proneness to mental illness. With attributions such as 50 percent of the Muslim world being inbred due to generations of first cousin marriages and cultural acceptance of honor killing, they are statistically predisposed to aggressive and violent tendencies. Disturbingly, this unfortunate idiosyncrasy, be it genetic or ideological, is quickly becoming a Western problem whether the media want to admit it or not.
Nearly one year after the local media hailed Oklahoma resident Taheera Ahmad for vowing to personally snuff out violence by replacing “hatred with love,” the 39-year-old mother was arrested and charged with binding and gagging her 3 daughters before brutally stabbing the 11-year-old between 50 to 70 times and striking her in the head several times with a pickaxe, according to the Daily Mail. Ahmad admitted that she planned on murdering the 2 older children because she didn’t like “the way they were reading and looking at her,” prompting suspicion that the attack may have been an attempted honor killing.
“Hatred kills. I’m gonna replace hatred with love,” Ahmad reportedly told KJRH-TV during an interview about gang violence, which took the life of her friend.
Although the gruesome attack was carried out in May, Tulsa police only recently released bodycam footage of both the harrowing rescue and Ahmad’s arrest, which occurred a day later. Ahmad reportedly bound and gagged her daughters, aged 7, 9, and 11, before plunging a kitchen knife into the oldest girl upwards of 70 times. She then set the kitchen on fire in an effort to ensure that the girl died and destroy evidence of her gruesome crime. Because the 9-year-old escaped and ran to a nearby family member’s home, emergency responders managed to arrive on the scene in time to save the dying girl.
Ahmad then went on the run with her youngest child, who family revealed she calls her “angel child.” She was found and arrested a day later in the back of a vehicle with the 7-year-old. She has been charged with arson, 2 counts of child abuse, and assault and battery with the intent to kill, according to KTUL.
Corporal Mark Kraft of the Child Crisis Unit said she also had a strange view of her daughters.
Kraft said, “She did not like the two older children because of the way they read their books. That doesn’t make a lot of sense but that was her reason for having such disdain for the two older children.”
He said Ahmad saw the older girls as her “devil children” and the youngest as her “angel child.”
The children told police that their mother threatened to stab them if they tried to leave their rooms, eventually becoming increasingly upset. According to one of the girls, she referred to one of her sisters as “the devil” just before launching the grisly attack.
“Mama gave us cookies today and then a couple hours later she tied our hands behind our back with duct tape and put a sock in our mouths and she told us to lay down,” the girl said. “She stabbed (my sister) a couple of times and (my sister) told me to run.”
There is no telling how much of a role Islam played in Ahmad’s life. However, the violence committed in its name is undeniably incited in the Quran. While we’ve repeatedly heard the verses of violence that command Muslims to mercilessly slaughter all non-Muslims, the scriptural justification for killing one’s own relatives is often overlooked. Not only do Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide, many carry out such heinous acts because of its justification in the Quran.
Quran (18:65-81) – This parable lays the theological groundwork for honor killings, in which a family member is murdered because they brought shame to the family, either through apostasy or perceived moral indiscretion. The story (which is not found in any Jewish or Christian source) tells of Moses encountering a man with “special knowledge” who does things which don’t seem to make sense on the surface, but are then justified according to later explanation. One such action is to murder a youth for no apparent reason (v.74). However, the wise man later explains that it was feared that the boy would “grieve” his parents by “disobedience and ingratitude.” He was killed so that Allah could provide them a ‘better’ son. [Note: This parable along with verse 58:22 is a major reason that honor killing is sanctioned by Sharia. Reliance of the Traveler (Umdat al-Saliq) says that punishment for murder is not applicable when a parent or grandparent kills their offspring (o.1.12).] (See also: Response to Apologists)
Although murder isn’t exclusive to one ideology or culture, only one religion sanctions it. Islam not only condones honor killing, it incentivizes it through the promise of “better” children to replace those murdered for their indiscretions.
The West is fighting a growing honor violence problem. We should be at war with any religion that promotes the discriminant slaughter of those who do not adhere to its oppressive compulsions.
