As usual, we won't see any outrage or "calls for action" by feminists and other left-wing activists. No, their self-righteous indignation is reserved instead for right-wing Christians and frat-boy "predators" on college campuses.
If the Left truly cared about the well-being of women, minorities, and simply plain-old human rights in the broader sense, it would be up in arms over a recently released video featuring a prominent Danish imam teaching his congregates to stone women for engaging in sexual intercourse.
The footage, captured on a hidden camera and shared by Danish TV2, exposed imam Abu Bilal Ismail leading a class in which he explains the appropriate punishment for adulterers. Mind you adulterers to the imam include women who aren't even married. There are other valuable life lessons the imam teaches too, including other instances in which it is appropriate to kill and whip people. The LocalDK reports:
“If a married or divorced women engages in fornication, and she is not a virgin, she should be stoned to death,” Ismail says in the video clip.
“If someone violates their marriage, either man or woman, they commit adultery and their blood is thus halal [acceptable under Muslim law, ed.] and they should be killed by stoning. If the woman is a virgin, the punishment is whipping,” he says.
The clip also shows the imam advocating an “eye for an eye” policy.
“If someone kills a Muslim, then they should be killed,” he says, before adding that anyone who abandons their religion should also be killed.
Somehow, this imam has been allowed to continue preaching hate and this mosque has been allowed to remain open despite the fact that Ismail was also caught on camera in July, 2014 calling on Allah "destroy the Zionist Jews." The mosque also openly supports ISIS:
In September 2014, Grimhøj Mosque made international headlines after declaring its support for the terrorist group Isis. In January 2015, the mosques’s chairman, Oussama El-Saadi, doubled down on the comments in a DR documentary, saying “we want the Islamic State to come out on top. We want an Islamic state in the world.”
The mosque also has ties to the now-deceased Abdessamad Fateh, the first Danish citizen to ever be added to the United States' terror list, and East Jutland Police believe that around two dozen foreign fighters who have left Denmark for Syria or Iraq have worshipped at the mosque.
There have supposedly been multiple attempts to close the Grimhøj Mosque but all have been unsuccessful. Why? Is it truly that difficult? Apparently so:
"It is completely unheard of that there are people in Denmark preaching this sort of thing. It clearly does not belong here. He [Abu Bilal Ismail, ed.] doesn't belong in Denmark either," Integration Minister Inger Støjberg told Ritzau, adding that there are limits to what the government can do about the mosque.
Marcus Knuth from the ruling Venstre party said it’s unbelievable that the same mosque can be the centre of repeated controversies.
“What is so shocking is that there are so many cases involving this mosque and that they just keep coming. That is almost the worst thing – that they haven’t learned anything and still practise these types of things and encourage this Stone Age behaviour,” he told TV2. East Jutland Police said on Twitter it would "investigate the remarks further and determine if it is a punishable situation".
One thing we must hand to the imam and the mosque's chairman -- they are honest. While he ceded that stoning and whipping aren't allowed in Denmark (you think?), El-Saadi openly stated that his imam is simply speaking the truth about Sharia law and that it would be wrong to "cheat and say incorrect things about our religion."
As always, Islamists tell us time and again who they are and what they stand for. Yet even when Westerners hear it, they are somehow impotent to do anything about it. If we continue on this weak-kneed trajectory and tolerate intolerance and depravity on this scale, the West is surely poised for downfall.
