The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

BANGLADESH: CHRISTIAN FAMILY BEATEN, CUT – AND FACES CHARGES

Muslim neighbors, local council threaten to burn home if they file assault case.

MALUMGHAT, Bangladesh, December 8 (Compass Direct News) – The harassment that Bangladeshi converts from Islam face from Muslim neighbors in this southeastern area near Cox’s Bazar can take serious turns – as it did last month, when an attack by about a dozen Muslims left a Christian family with machete wounds. Confident that no police would side with Christian converts from Islam, the Muslims in Chakaria town, near Cox’s Bazar 380 kilometers (236 miles) southeast of Dhaka, later filed false charges of assault against the wounded and limping Christians, family members said. Laila Begum, a 45-year-old Christian convert from Islam, said that on Nov. 1 some 10 to 15 Muslim neighbors demanded 200 taka (US$3) [jizya – GdB]. Begum told Compass she had borrowed 2,000 taka (US$30) last year from a Muslim neighbor and this year paid her back with interest. She told the group of Muslim neighbors that she would pay no more, she said, and they began beating her. “Suddenly they got equipped with sticks, iron rods, knives and machetes,” she said. “Several places of my head were lacerated by machetes and iron rods. They also cut two of my fingers when I tried to fend off their attacks. They beat me in several places of my body by iron rods and sticks.” The family informed local governing council members about the attack, but they demanded 20,000 taka (US$300) to settle the matter and also threatened them, she said. “The local council officials also told us that if we file any case in the police station, our houses will be burnt to ashes and we will be evicted from the locality.”

Fight those who believe not in God nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subduedQur’an 9:29

  1. With such impunity from the legal system, Moslems become even worse bullies.

    Rampaging murderers, in fact.

    A return to the Dark Ages?

    We need an El Cid!
