The Family Honour
January 29, 2012, 50 miles from my home, in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, the verdict was read. "Mohammad
Shafia, guilty of first degree murder.
Tooba Yahya, guilty of first degree murder.
Hamed Shafia, guilty of first degree murder".
The judge then sentenced Mohammad, his second wife of a
polygamous marriage, Tooba Yahya, and his 21 year old son Hamed, to life
Shafia maintained his innocence during the court proceedings and police
not a murderer", he yelled as the judge handed down his sentence.
Hamed and Tooba Yahya proclaimed the same, but that didn't
matter. Their recorded
voices from their tapped phones, along with computer files, did them in.
Mohammad Shafia said he was a loving father, but the recordings
told the truth. "May
the devil shit on their graves…", he angrily exclaimed on one
so-called loving, Afghan, Islamic family, living in Canada, has been destroyed for good. Father,
second wife, and son, are in prison for life.
Three teenage daughters and their step-mother, Mohammad's first wife,
are dead. The remaining
children are orphaned, and why? The
"family's honour" was disgraced.
Three teenage Islamic girls must never dress like the western
girls their father chose for them to live among.
The "family honour" must be maintained at all costs,
even if the price is the extermination of three girls and their mother.
Under oath, Mohammad Shafia denied any adherence to such
religious convictions, but again, the phone recordings told a different
story. He, Tooba Yahya, and
Hamed, all lied under oath. Why?
answer to "why" dates back 1400 years to another Mohammad.
He was raised in a polytheistic, pagan, tribal family, in the
important to understand that Mohammad's new religion, known as Islam,
wasn't entirely new. He
incorporated much of the pagan traditions of his day into his religion,
which found their roots in the old Canaanite and Babylonian religions
that God commanded Abraham to stay clear of. Therefore,
I consider Islam to be "monotheistic paganism", a descendent
of Old Testament style polytheism. In
addition, and I believe only to win over Jews, he adopted Abraham as the
father of his religion. He
taught his followers to face Jerusalem
when they pray, and obey the Jewish Sabbath and dietary laws.
that I think about it, Mohammad borrowed a page from church history as
well. A couple of centuries
earlier, the so-called church adopted pagan practices to win pagans over
to their side. Then later in
time, if they didn't come over, the so-called church sent the military
after them to wipe them out. Mohammad
did the same. Personally
speaking, I've always thought that the apostasy of the 7th
century church had something to do with the rise of Islam.
why did Mohammad Shafia, his wife, and son, lie under oath? It's
called the "Quraysh Model".
We go back to 630 A. D. for the rest of the story.
Arab tribes were in constant conflict.
Mohammad relocated from
Koran supports the "Quraysh Model".
appears to me that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad holds to the
same religious convection. A
lie isn't a lie when spoken in the name of Allah.
Murder isn't murder when it's committed in the name of Allah.
Telling the world that he's not "building the bomb" is
simply another expression of the "Quraysh Model". When
the bomb is built, like his mentor, he will strike.
all Muslims follow this deceptive model, but not all who call themselves
Muslims are real Muslims as defined by the Koran.
Not all who call themselves Christians are real Christians as
defined by the Bible. In
both cases, the true believer is a strict adherent to his holy book, and
Islam's holy book supports the "Quraysh Model".
The Bible, however, teaches us not to lie, not to commit murder
or even get angry without cause, and, it teaches that men are to love
their wives as Christ loves the church.
I'd tell these things to a Muslim if he were my neighbour.
I'd be intrigued with what he had to say, and listen intently, but in
the end, I'd tell him that Allah wasn't Abraham's God. Abraham
served the God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ. He's
quite a different God. If
Mohammad Shafia would have served this God, he would have had the loving
family he claimed to have.
