Vigilantism in Lebanon

Below is a video which is unspeakably harsh. It is pornographic in it’s horror, to borrow a phrase from Christopher Hitchens. Below that, is a commentary from Tundra Tabloids, and then below that, an article on it as well. I don’t really know what to add to this except do-not-watch-the-video and certainly not if there are children around.

Am I trying to characterize Muslims with this video? Well, perhaps in a way. Everyone was yelling ‘Allahu Ackbar’ as they lynched this guy according to a Russian site, and it tends to make me think that once a nation goes Muslim, it’s not so much a kind of Orwellian tome, but William Golding. Islam’s logical conclusion: Lord of the Flies.

Eeyore for Vlad:

This is the hallmark of Islam, societal approval of vigilantism in the streets to instill a sense of intimidation and fear in the people. Yes this guy was a murderous thug and deserved to be prosecuted under the law, and face the punishment handed out to the perpertrator of such a heinous crime. That said, the man shouldn’t have been lynched in the street by a mob, especially when there were law enforcement officers escorting the man. KGS

Angry mob of Lebanese villagers lynch murder suspect in town centre in gruesome vigilante attack

A mob of angry Lebanese villagers stabbed to death an Egyptian man and then lynched his naked body in the centre of town over allegations he killed four members of a local family.
Mohammed Msallem, a 38-year-old Egyptian who worked as a butcher in Ketermaya, had been arrested a day earlier on suspicion of shooting to death an elderly couple and their two young granddaughters, aged seven and nine.
He was leading police investigators through a re-enactment of the killings when dozens of residents attacked him with sticks and knives, security officials said.
Police rushed Msallem to the intensive care unit of a nearby hospital, but residents broke in, dragged him out and pounded him with sticks.

Asecurity official said police at the scene could not stop the attackers, who blocked streets in the village to prevent police reinforcements from reaching the scene.
After killing Msallem, the attackers stripped his bloody body down to the victim’s underwear and drove it through town on a car hood, with several local men standing on the hood cheering.
They then hanged the body from a pole in the centre of town as hundreds of residents cried ‘Allahu Akbar,’ or God is great. Some villagers even took photos of the dead man with their mobile phones.

  1. In your article entitled ‘Vigilantism in Lebanon’, you write ‘hundreds of residents cried ‘Allahu Akbar,’ or God is great’. But the word ‘Akbar’ means, literally, ‘greater’ or ‘the greatest’. Thus, ‘Allahu Akbar’ means ‘Allah is greater [than all other gods]’, or ‘Allah is the greatest [of all gods]’. The slogan helps justify any and all Muslim actions, by simply declaring that Allah is both superior and victorious. The liberal translation ‘great’, besides being linguistically incorrect, keeps hidden the basic idea that Allah and his followers are generally superior and above criticism.

  2. I think I’ll learn an associate that Language with such Acts of … Barbarism. And do you see the Public? Used to that Things, not wondering whether it’s normal or not. Really, they looks like Animals in the Jungle – sorry, Animals in the Jungle show more awareness than these. Anyway: why don’t they linch their beloved (and murderous) Terrorists in the same Way? In Case we’ll do so, which Reaction will they (the Islamic Mob – Moderates or whatever -) display? I’m appalled.

  3. Muslim countries are a mixture of Orwell’s police state and Golding’s anarchy.

    Sharia law and specific rumours originate with the leadership. Mob violence originates with the illiterate, ill-informed populace.

    Ultimately the ignorance of legal procedure and of other cultures by Muslims rests with the state-controlled media and Islam’s insistence that it holds all the answers and is above reproach. Either way, Islam’s leaders hold all the cards and it is death to anyone who opposes them.

    Its a sick system no matter how you look at it.

    May the free world remain free.

  4. This is why “the clash of civilizations” is not a very good description of what is happening. Islam its not a civilization. Its bloody and barbaric/
