Muslim insanity

Story in the NY Times about the Pakistani boy who chops off his own hand. What do the boy’s parents think about it?

“We are lucky that we have this son who loves Prophet Muhammad that much,” Muhammad Ghafoor, Anwar’s father, said in a telephone interview. “We will be rewarded by God for this in the eternal world.”

What a bunch of crazy people. And this is in Pakistan, our supposed “ally” against the more radical Taliban.

  1. This is why Pakistan is better off when its ruled by secular elitists and moderate such as Bhutto and Musharraf. Though corrupt and democratic they imposed secularism, law and order, and economic growth policies.

    Yet the US keeps pushing Pakistan and other countries to adopt democracy. In these countries democracy means people like this kid’s family get to decide government policy.

    • I think the Swedes just all want to commit suicide, but don’t have the guts, so they are setting themselves up to be murdered. A dream come true, victim at last!

  3. “And this is in Pakistan, our supposed “ally” against the more radical Taliban.”

    And the US is starting to make limited diplomatic inroads with the Taliban, because they’re worried about being overtaken by the even more deranged followers of ISIS.

  4. It’s not all that different from the US, except for the chopping. A person accused of racism (or sexism or homophobia) must immediately engage in a self-initiated process of humiliating self-abasement to save what he can of his social position, to avoid non-personhood and economic and social death.

    The boy’s action wasn’t crazy or irrational. From his standpoint, he was highly likely to be killed for the accusation of blasphemy. He is now seriously handicapped for life and will probably be a beggar- you can’t do manual labor with one manual and there’s no prothesis and desk job for him- but he will live.

    Word of advice: Less attractive men who date hotter women, are at their mercy, when it comes to better looking men.

  6. I’m imagining the sort of Orwellian hell of a church service in which, when asked “Who here doesn’t not love Jesus?”, an incorrect response results in a cry of “Blasphemer!” and denouncement by the whole congregation.

    The whole incident is like a Maoist self-criticism session, only limbs are being destroyed in addition to egos.

    Also, to be clear, the word “ally” doesn’t mean “friend”. In this case, it means “Place where significant portions of the elite are sufficiently corrupt that they can be bribed to offer grudging, backhanded support to our initiatives”. It may well be the case that Pakistan is more Islamized than Afghanistan — I don’t know that they have an analogue to Afghanistan’s boy prostitutes.

    There’s an argument that radical Islam is actually less violent and dysfunctional than traditional Pashtun culture, and the Taliban was actually doing good to the degree that they suppressed that culture (though they also simultaneously suppressed elements of Westernization). And unfortunately, radical Islam has a tendency to want to export those violent tendencies.

  7. Pakistan, our supposed “ally” against the more radical Taliban.

    Pakistan created the Taliban, and continues to fund and support it. Their “fight” against the Taliban is largely pretend. They will stop pretending after we go away, and return to whole-hearted support for the Taliban.

      http://www.jpost.com/International/North-African-men-attempt-to-stone-transgender-women-in-German-city-441695

      Three young men from North Africa were arrested on Saturday in the western German city of Dortmund for stoning two transgender women.

      According to a report on Friday on television station SAT1.NRW, the men attacked Yasmine und Elisa, two transgender women, near the city’s main train station.

      “Within seconds we were tossed around…and they took stones from a gravel bed on the corner and threw them at us,” said Elisa.

      A police car appeared at the train station as the stoning attack unfolded and arrested the men.

      The German media as a general rule do not disclose the last names of victims to protect their privacy. The three men are between 16 and 18 years-old and are known to the authorities from theft and assault arrests.

      Dortmund police official Kim-Ben Freigang said the suspects told the police that “such persons must be stoned.”

  9. May I humbly suggest the British ban all Pakistanis from entry (and revoke the citizenship of all those Pakistani men, women, and children who now occupy Britain) instead of banning a Mr. Donald J. Trump?

    • This would be rayciss! Think about how productive the Pakistanis are, coming from a country with a mean IQ of 81. I’m sure the brits couldn’t manage without them. Heck, I already see leftists babble stuff like “without muslims, Europe couldn’t manage!” or “Europe depends on its hard-working muslims” etc. Fact being, muslims and blacks are the worst immigrants you can have. Imagine what Germany would look like if instead of its more than 6 millions of muslims it had Ashkenazi Jews. It was a grave mistake to kill the Ashkenazi Jews in Germany. They made less than one percent of the population, and would often inter-married with germans, being more compatible with Germany than muslims are, let alone how well they were integrated in society, in academia especially.

        Ha. If Europe imports Muslims, then they will be as well-managed as Muslim countries. Nothing improves the economy like importing hordes of stupid, violent men from an alien culture…

      • @ Yakov –

        You didn’t read what he wrote closely. Germany now has around 6 million Muslims. Before Hitler, there were about 500,000 Jews in Germany compared to around 67 million ethnic Germans. Friedrich would rather have the old prewar Jewish population and its descendants rather than the numerous unassimilable Muslim immigrants who took their place.

    • Think about how productive the Pakistanis are, coming from a country with a mean IQ of 81.

      I still think Pakistani mean IQ is higher than African IQ – Lynn and Vanhannen’s estimates are questionable. Among numerous problems, they have Irish IQ at only 90. Somebody needs to conduct a new national IQ study; but that’s an entirely different discussion.

      We know ‘Pakis’ have abnormal genetic malfunctions working in their systems, weirdness in no small measure due to high levels of cousin-marriage. A very high percentage of London newborns afflicted with birth defects are born to Pakistani immigrants. But this is all unimportant and takes attention away from blocking Trump from immigrating to the UK.

      • Cousin marriage is consistent with a mean iq of 81. The largest number of genes are expressed in the brain. I think G. Cochran posted on it.

        An IQ of 81 means Pakistanis are dumber than black Americans. I’m as anti-Muslim as they come, but even I have to concede Pakis are smarter than American Negroes.

      • I don’t know who von Newman was. I do my thing in life, not von Newman’s. The patriarchs married cousins, and were no worse for it. In fact, I think that it’s good from the aspect that you know whom you are marring and you are alike in a lot of important ways. But maybe because of all these cousin marriages over thousands of years it’s detrimental to your health right now. It was a good thing in the time of the patriarchs, though. I’m sure of that. I think my cousin wishes it till this day, and me too, sometimes. You really can save hundreds of hours of useless attempts to explain yourself. You just understand each other without need for verbal communication. This is awesome. You can cut to the chase and get straight to business.

      • @ Yakov –

        John von Neumann was a famous Hungarian-Jewish mathematician. He contributed to many fields including pure mathematics, quantum physics, economics (game theory), and computing. He was also a consultant to the Manhattan Project.

        Inbreeding is detrimental to health if its between third cousins or closer. Outside of this range, whether a marriage is beneficial depends on how advantageous/survival enhancing are the characteristics passed on from mother and father to their children.
