Syrian Mum describes how her teenage son was executed over Mohammed quip

EARLIER this month Mohammed Katta (or Qataa in some reports) was working at his family’s coffee stall in the Shaar district of Aleppo when he made a fatal error. Pressured by a customer to hand over a coffee on promise of payment, the 14-year-old shouted good-humouredly:

I wouldn’t give the Prophet Mohammed credit if he came here today.

The light-hearted remark was, according to this report, overheard by two men. Marching over, they whisked him away in a car, ignoring his protestations of his love for the Prophet and the objections of a militiaman from the Free Syrian Army nearby.

Half an hour later, they returned. According to Mohammed’s younger brother and the neighbours, he was staggering and fell to his knees, and had clearly been beaten. A bag had been placed over his head.

Mohammed’s mother, Nadia Umm Fuad, was was upstairs at home when she first heard shouting. The people of the neighbourhood were yelling that “they have brought back the kid”, so she rushed out of her apartment.

I went out on my balcony. I said to his father, they are going to shoot your son! Come! Come! Come! I was on the stairs when I heard the first shot. I was at the door when I heard the second shot.

I saw the third shot. I was shouting, ‘That’s haram, forbidden! Stop! Stop! You are killing a child.’ But they just gave me a dirty look and got into their car. As they went, they drove over my son’s arm, as he lay there dying.

I heard them say, ‘People of Aleppo and people of Shaar! Anyone who curses God is given three days to repent. Anyone who curses the Prophet is killed immediately.

Islamist brigades such as Jabhat al-Nusra and others loyal to the Revolutionary Military Council, backed by the West, have set up a Sharia court. Its director, Abu Ammar, said it was investigating Mohammed’s killing. But it does not know who was responsible.

He added that the law forbade vigilante justice; all those accused must be brought before a court and allowed to speak.

Immediately after the atrocity, it was reported here that the boy was shot for blasphemy after saying that he would never embrace Islam:

Even if the Prophet Mohammad comes down (from heaven), I will not become a believer.

    Ah yes the beautiful religion of peace.

    Hate & brutality in the name of God,whats new
    Religion should be a private affair between a person & “The God”that person believed in,there should be no third party involvement

  4. Ian Mason says:

    There are people who just love power and religion is the ideal tool.

  5. “Here in the United States, countless publications provoke offense. Like me, the majority of Americans are Christian, and yet we do not ban blasphemy against our most sacred beliefs. As president of our country, and commander in chief of our military, I accept that people are going to call me awful things every day, and I will always defend their right to do so.

    Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views — even views that we profoundly disagree with. We do so not because we support hateful speech, but because our founders understood that without such protections, the capacity of each individual to express their own views and practice their own faith may be threatened.

    We do so because in a diverse society, efforts to restrict speech can quickly become a tool to silence critics and oppress minorities. We do so because, given the power of faith in our lives, and the passion that religious differences can inflame, the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression, it is more speech — the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphemy, and lift up the values of understanding and mutual respect.”

    The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam but to be credible those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches destroyed or the Holocaust that is denied,” Obama proclaimed.

    Trevor, if you are going to throw out random quotes by Obama, put them into context. Oh, but of course, that wouldn’t serve your purpose, would it?

    So they’re saying that they rate the homophobic, misogynistic peadophile Mohamed higher than they rate their god. How very odd.

    It’s shocking–those Muslims doing what Christians did for centuries.
    Religion is BS and superstition. Only an idiot would believe in any of them.

  9. Marky Mark says:

    (heard them say, ‘People of Aleppo and people of Shaar! Anyone who curses God is given three days to repent. Anyone who curses the Prophet is killed immediately.)
    …These are the words of crazy people. Don’t think for one second that the Evangelical Right here in the USA wouldn’t love to kill anyone that does not believe as they do.

    If someone has to believe that a sky daddy is watching their every move in order to be a good person, than they are, and will never be a good person. That is why the religious cults are filled with so many psychopaths. Psychopaths who use religion as an excuse to kill others.

  10. L.Long says:

    They have to kill these people because they have seen what happened to the xtians. The xtians got slapped down by science and the enlightment and have not really recovered and now anyone can say phuck jesus and is homophobic daddy.
    They must keep that from happening to islame or the head con-men will start loosing power. Aint got nothin to do with allah or mo, it is about having and keeping power by the male privileged few.

    Americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views their own country’s business interests.

    Fixed that for you. Really, take a look at your (and our, apparently) great friends and allies, Saudi Arabia, sometime.

    Here’s a starter for you: Link

  13. Daz says:

    Oops, that was the UAE. Well, the point still stands. They sell oil to “the west” so the west ignores their human rights record.

  14. remigius says:

    Yeah, we’ve caught another nutter.

    Barry, can we keep Sabrynne. I wouldn’t wanna have her/him/it consigned to the naughthy step, like Bob!

  15. Daz says:

    Remigius, we know what happens next. You’ll walk her and feed her for a week, then you’ll get bored…

    We had to flush the last one down the loo!

  16. Matt+Westwood says:

    The only reason why Islam has not yet taken over the world (and never will) is because Muslims kill more Muslims than they kill kaffirs.

    But then they go and kill children. How fucking sick is that?

    Oh, and give Sabrynne a break, he/she was only quoting the full text of what Obama said so as to provide a balance from what TB said.

  17. Daz says:

    In that case:

    Sabrynne:
    <blockquote>Paste quoted text here</blockquote>

    Still an’ all, I don’t see how this:

    The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam but to be credible those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches destroyed or the Holocaust that is denied

    …makes it any better. It merely—and falsely—equates “slander” against Mo with actual acts of violence and such.

  18. Trevor Blake says:

    Sabrynne: I think your extended quote confirms my view of my shorter quote. I think President Obama is claiming religion is to be subject to only certain forms of criticism and not others. I also think he is claiming if Islam, in particular, is exempt from criticism, then Muslims will be less murderous. But I could be wrong.

    Next time I see Nakoula Basseley Nakoula I’ll ask him about Presidemt Obama’s support for freedom of speech and one’s legal right to criticize Islam.

    This is utterly disgusting.
    But can anyone tell me, are we (the West – USA, UK, France etc.)now about to send WEAPONS to these islamic fascists? Are we now about to arm those who would set up sharia courts and slaughter those with open-minded, open-mouthed tendencies? Murder and the fear of murder, regardless of age or sex – what a wonderful religion islam is!! You either accept or die. Poor kid.

  21. 1859 says:

    O….I forgot my curse – If your prophet mohammed needs you to murder to protect his reputation, then he is a sick, obscene piece of inhuman shit, a piece of the devil’s excrement that deserves to be flushed down the toilet for the rest of eternity before its stink chokes us all. I hope you can understand that.

    No. You are referring to Diana Lesperance. OK she acknowledged that there is no archaeological proof for any biblical myth. But, whatever, yeah stuff and such.

    I’m sure she now realises the error of her ways, and won’t dare to suggest any of that Jesus nonsense is actually true. But bollocks, and stuff. Whatever!

    I think it is quite right to examine President Obama’s words in context. The first phrase of the above has been seized upon by the Christian/Zionist/Right in America in their relentless onslaught against a man whom THEY have slandered as both a Muslim and Communist, and even Antichrist! I don’t see that he is equating mere criticism of Islam with violence, but rather pointing out – as many others, including leading churchmen, have been trying – that whereas Mohammedans tend to get their knickers in a twist over cartoons, jokes and “blasphemous” statements, THEIR response is to murder and burn. I think his choice of words was ill-advised, and illustrates once again the naivety of the mainly liberal, left-wing, who have no concept of what fanatical ideological thinking does to people, and think that everyone else is reasonable and balanced like them. If they only knew!

    This forum gives a taste of what is being said:

    http://www.raptureforums.com/forum/prophecy-end-times-chat/75209-who-said-future-must-not-belong-those-who-slander-prophet-islam.html

    There’s some real nonsense there, but one commenter has it right on one site (which I have been unable to locate again!); every real Christian “slanders” the prophet of Islam because the basic tenet of the faith is that “there is one god and Mohammed is his prophet”, whereas Jesus said (supposedly): “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the father but by me.” (John 14:6). How can you possibly reconcile those diametrically opposed beliefs?

    Sad news for some of us – Mick Aston has died:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23041568

    Another site has this:

    Good Night, Professor Mick. Your jumper will be missed.

    Mick was a vocal naturist, vegetarian, and wearer of funny looking sweaters. He was also a prominent archaeologist with a particular interest in landscape archaeology…

    Mick also wrote books on the development of British medieval villages and had undertaken a ten year project to investigate the manor of Shapwick, in Somerset. He was very interested in churches and monastic structures (despite being a strident atheist), and was emeritus professor at Bristol University in his retirement.

    I heard them say, ‘People of Aleppo and people of Shaar! Anyone who curses God is given three days to repent. Anyone who curses the Prophet is killed immediately.

    Compare that with Matthew 18:1

    “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

    Islam clearly reckons to know the answer.

  27. Robster says:

    Betcha the ol’ Syria is a popular port on Islamic scenic tours, there’s all that makes the religion of peace such a messy problem. When they realise their silly nonsense is a problem, can they scap the current model and make up a newie? There’s much to do, get the girls out of the sacks, buy some shavers, use them and clothes, pack away the loudspeakers and sleep in on Saturday and embracing scientific fact to start. Perhspa even a welcome alcholic beverage!
