An Islamic Stoning

by Jerry Richardson   10/22/14

When are people in the US and the rest of the western-world going to decide that the evil terrorism that is sanctioned by Islam must be stopped?   It is not just terrorism.  It is not just armed-conflict.  It is not just war.

It is hideous, barbaric evil!

And the Islamic monsters of ISIS are not going to be stopped with feel-good, don’t-get-involved, puny, pin-point airstrikes; they are going to have to be destroyed with a shock-and-awe coordinated attack from all angles.  Overwhelming force is called for.  People such as ISIS are pure, unadulterated evil and they are growing more brazen by the day—thanks to President Appeasement.

Obama has sat on his cowardly rump and let this evil monster gain enormous momentum.  ISIS and other forces of radical Islam are not going to be stopped with weak-kneed threats; or pusillanimous appeasements.

If the following is not a disgusting, infuriating, description of barbaric evil, please tell me what would be:

A veiled woman listens to a heavily bearded fanatic. Standing alongside him is an elderly man. In the background, another masked man shuffles casually, as if he’s waiting for a bus. Other armed men lurk all around. Watching. Waiting.

Welcome to the Islamic State’s latest offering to humanity: the videoed stoning of a young woman.

The video begins with the bearded fanatic, the judge, outlining the crime allegedly committed by the victim: adultery. With gleeful excitement, the judge encourages the elderly man, the victim’s father, to condemn and disown her. He obliges, waving his hand in disdain as his young daughter begs for her life. He then abandons her and walks off to join those waiting in the background. They comfort him for his courage.
The show trial over, the woman, leashed like a dog, is led by her father to a hole in the ground. As she’s tied to the bottom of the pit, other Islamic State fanatics gather around her. It’s feeding time.

As the victim murmurs quiet prayers, the Islamic State begins to throw stones at her head. They do so with ferocious energy, clearly taking great satisfaction in their murder of an unarmed woman. For a short while, the woman cries out in pain. But then, as she falls silent, a jihadist soundtrack offers an ordained climax as the stone throwers complete their deed.

    Enza sent me this the other day and I was trying to figure out what to do with it. I think it works here:

    Moderate Muslim

    And Geert Wilders, a man ahead of his time, speaks out about Islam in Six Questions With Geert Wilders at The American Spectator.

    • Jerry Richardson says:


      I’ve been following Wilders since about the time of “Fitna.” I’m not sure many people other than folks who inhabit places like Stubborn Things fully realize what a courageous politician and freedom-fighter he is. He is just indomitable; and has to live under guard all the time. I wish we had a few politicians with his foresight and courage concerning the Islamic threat to freedom, holding forth in the US.

      • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

        I was going to suggest that everyone read that article about Wilder and then try to pick out the anomaly (or at least the unusual thing). I would then offer a prize of 100 guilders (or whatever) for whoever got it first. But I figure no one would want to play this at-home game. But the anomaly is in the followiing. See who can get it first:

        Islam is a totalitarian ideology aiming for world domination.

        • Jerry Richardson says:

          It’s probably not the anomaly you have in mind, but I find the following to be a rather curious statement:

          Western leaders focus solely on terrorism, but fail to see the purpose which terrorism is serving: Islamic word dominance. They should focus on fighting the global imperialist plans of Islam and treat terrorism as one of the means used to achieve this goal.

          What puzzles me about the above statement is that I’m not sure if the Phrase Islamic word dominance should read Islamic world dominance. If the wording as it reads is intended, then Wilders is saying that Islamic control of “words”—publicity, free-speech, etc—is the goal of terrorism.
          It’s probably just a typo, but it struck me as peculiar that a typo might make sense.

          • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

            Well, that typo deserves an honorable mention. But the astonishing thing that Geert said (that is sitting right in front of our eyes) is that Islam is….etc., etc., etc. He didn’t say radical Islam. He didn’t qualify it.

            • Jerry Richardson says:

              Yeah, sort of fits the graphic you attached. And you are certainly correct that it is a message that Geert has constantly preached.

              Islam is the problem.

            • Timothy Lane says:

              But of course, that isn’t an anomaly, not in reality. That’s why your challenge was so difficult. If you had asked what Feckless Leader and his claque would consider an anomaly, that might have been a different matter.

              But of course, we all know what happened to Wilders. And now we have terrorist attacks in Canada, and 3 Denver girls trying to join ISIS. Islam is the greatest enemy of civilization; modern liberalism only ranks second.

  2. Timothy Lane says:

    The really peculiar thing about ISIS is that despite their reported cleverness in using social media, they happily expose the dark underside of Islam — all the atrocities that are inherent in Sharia (such as stoning women for any sort of sexual offense, such as being raped). Or are they really infernally clever about how to appeal to the Young Barbarians in our midst created by liberal culture?

    • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

      The use of technology may shape cultural mores, but not necessarily so. Not every part of the world is so easily influenced by the toys of technology to the point of “the media is the message.” How many millions of yutes run around mindlessly using the latest technology to text essentially meaningless pablum?

      ISIS clearly has a serious message and, obviously, sees technology simply as a tool with which they can spread their 7th century death cult. They are happy to find those who agree with them, but don’t appear to be too worried if you don’t. There is always the sword as a method of convincing others of their beliefs.

      I doubt we can truly understand their thinking. And this is a good thing.

      • Jerry Richardson says:

        Kung Fu Zu,

        the media is the message

        Sounds a bit like Marshall McCluhan. Were you a fan/reader of his work?

        I doubt we can truly understand their thinking. And this is a good thing.

        I think you are right. I usually like to understand what people are thinking, but in this case, I think the very darkness of the thought might be overwhelming. The picture I get is what happened at times on Star Treck when Spock mind-melded with some very repulsive person.

        • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:


          It is basically McCluhan with a change to media as opposed to medium, with a slight butchering of grammar.

          He was a very popular subject of study over 40 year ago when I was in college. It’s been a long time since I have read anything of his, but I certainly think he was on to something as regards how the medium itself becomes part of the message. True then and even more so now, I think.

          As to the thought process of ISIS, I think the movie “Event Horizon” with Sam Neill and Lawrence Fishburne might give us an idea of the evil that lurks in the minds of such types.

    Timothy, I hope Glenn waltzes in here in full pontification mode (seriously) because I think there is a Pulitzer-Prize-winning essay for anyone who can document, predict, and explain this phenomenon in the kind of wonderfully obscure detail that Glenn if so good at.

    The short answer is that a culture that has made a sick ritual of demeaning itself, criticizing itself, and destroying any reason to value it is going to leave our yutes open to anything that offers real meaning. They’re already being force-fed an ideology (Leftism/Progressivism) that is about destroying our culture. So what surprise is there really that people are attracted to a movement that is not only committed to that but offers a solid identity as well?

    Yeah, the worst that libertarians will do is be attracted to dope and they’ll stop there, too stupefied to do anything violent. But that’s not necessarily true for entire generations of yutes who have been told that their civilization is horrible.

    Myself, every day I see subtle signs that people are cracking up. Call it my Spider-sense. There is very little glue holding Western Civilization together. All we have going for us is a certain amount of inertia because of our institutions and laws. But the Left has done a terrific job of gutting the very reason to honor and want to pass on our culture. The analogy is of the tree that has rotted out on the inside but from the outside appears to be relatively healthy.

    Okay, Glenn. I’ve thrown down the gauntlet. I’ve given you writer’s inspiration. And I don’t even ask to share in the Pulitzer Prize.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      Quite right. We’ve seen this for a long time in ghetto drug gangs, which end up becoming the young thugs’ family. And we see it also in the infamous “American Taliban”, a typical Marin County youth who looked for something to believe in.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        From the first reports, it appears the Canadian gunman who killed the guard at their tomb of the unknown soldier was a recent convert to Islam. He had a criminal record of some note. I am convinced many so-called converts to Islam in the west are criminals with grudges against society and see Islam as a way to get “payback.” Their inclination to violence is also something of a pre-existing condition which fits in nicely.

  4. Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

    Some thirty years back while living in Asia, I knew someone who claimed he had seen a stoning in Saudi Arabia. As I recall, he said both a man and woman were buried to their necks in the sand and the all inhabitants of the village were forced to throw a stone at them. Apparently, most of the villagers initially threw their rocks at the man and were forced to go back and finish the job on the woman.

    • Timothy Lane says:

      Well, it could be worse, I guess. “Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon.” But that was fiction.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        Perhaps. Although I never read the book, I do recall seeing some film adaptation of it years back. Very creepy.

        It made me think of “The Wicker Man”, but at least those people chose an outsider.

  5. Jerry Richardson says:

    Terrorism is real; terrorism is on the rise; and terrorism needs to be called what it is: Terrorism. Not by some goofy Coward-in-chief euphemism such as “workplace violence.”

    Denying obvious instances of terrorism, such as the jihadist mass-murder at Fort Hood, is a transparent effort to conceal the obvious falsity of the president’s claims. If these attacks are not really terrorism, the reasoning goes, then there must be less terrorism; therefore, the pretense of defeating terror networks can be spun as validated. As I’ve said before, it is a way of miniaturizing the threat.

    It is more than that, though. Terrorism is fueled by an ideology. It is rooted, quite literally, in Islamic scripture. To cite one of many examples, in the Koran’s sura 8:12, Allah instructs Muslims: “I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them.” Thus, Omar Abdel Rahman, the infamous “Blind Sheikh” I prosecuted for terrorism in the nineties, used to exhort followers:

    Why do we fear the word “terrorist”? If the terrorist is the person who defends his right, so we are terrorists. . . . The Koran mentions the words “to strike terror,” therefore we don’t fear to be described with “terrorism.” . . . We are ordered to prepare whatever we can of power to terrorize the enemies of Islam.

    We need to Call it Terrorism

    And Jesus said Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.

    What a stark difference between the loving and forgiving Jesus and the murderous and evil ideology of Muhammad.
