Muslims and their Misojudy
Misojudy is my coinage. The “Miso-” part means hatred and loathing (as in misogeny, hatred of women, another pathology Muslims cultivate), and the “-judy” (as in “-geny”) is a way to form a noun ending denoting “Judaism”.
Countless news stories and historical accounts could be adduced to demonstrate the misojudy firmly enculturated in mainstream Islam.
I’ll just feature one for today: The savage stabbing murder in early December of 2008 of a Jewish professor, 77-year-old Richard Antoun, professor of anthropology at Binghamton University in upstate New York.
His murderer was, no surprise, Abdulsalam al-Zahrani, a graduate student there who had been receiving assistance from the professor with his doctoral dissertation (a probable puff piece with New Agey overtones richly titled “Sacred Voice, Profane Sight: The Senses, Cosmology, and Epistemology in Early Arabic Culture”).
Naturally, the news account from the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports that “the motive for the attack is unclear”.
The professor’s specialty was the Middle East, and he had written six books on the subject and had taught at Cairo University and conducted field trips to Jordan, Lebanon, and Iran. The title of his 2001 book (published before 911) is bitterly ironic: Understanding Fundamentalism: Christian, Muslim and Jewish Movements.
In this vein, the reporter (oddly named Aaron Nicodemus) notes that Prof. Antoun’s work “focused on bridging the divide between religions and cultures, particularly in the Middle East.”
That divide not only remained unbridged; it turned around to lash out at him and stab him repeatedly in a fanatical frenzy.
Though he had retired nearly a decade before 2008, Prof. Antoun was still active on campus and helped graduate students, such as Abdulsalam (whose Arabic name, true to the wickedly Orwellian nature of that Devil’s tongue, translates as “Slave of Peace”), who not only stabbed Prof. Antoun to death four times with a kitchen knife, he also tore away a teacher from his students, a brother from his loving sister, a husband from his wife, a father from his three sons, and a grandfather from his grandchildren.
Abdulsalam al-Zahrani at the time was a 46-year-old Saudi national, studying in the U.S. He lived with two Third World roommates, both of whom were Christians (one a Muslim convert to Christianity), and both of whom reported that al-Zahrani would needle them disparagingly about their religion. One of them reported that al-Zahrani was:
“…was acting oddly, like a terrorist”, and, according to C5’s blog (upon whom I rely for most of the subsequent details), al-Zahrani:
…often mentioned death… said he was being persecuted because he was Muslim and would often ask his roommate if he was afraid of death. His other roommate claimed that Al-Zahrani exclaimed “I just feel like destroying the world” and would make weird remarks. Meanwhile the other roommate said that Al-Zahrani drew a knife on him during their first week as roommates and that Al-Zahrani would scream on the phone in Arabic, and that “He was all the time shouting in Arabic, shouting threats, insulting this country for no reason”.
Naturally, the Broome County D.A. issued the statement that: “A motive for the crime still has not been released, although a press release from Mollen dismissed the idea of an ethnic or religious motivation.”
According to Canada Free Press, Al-Zahrani’s roommates stated that he often put them down due to their Christian beliefs. Al Zahrani was also described as rabidly anti-Israel, and authored several recent postings on Arabic language web sites that degraded Israel and Jews.
The Ithaca Journal reported one of his roommates as recounting a telling impression made on him by the Muslim:
“He was sitting on the sofa and just blurted out ‘I just feel like destroying the world,’” said Pena, 22. “He seemed like someone that’s calm, but he could flip in a second.”
Sounds like SJS (Sudden Jihad Syndrome) to me.
The Press & Sun Bulletin reported that his Saudi-appointed lawyer, New York attorney Frederica Miller, officially angled for a plea of insanity, claiming Al-Zahrani suffered from “schizoaffective disorder”:
Schizoaffective disorder is a mental condition that causes a loss of contact with reality and mood problems, according to health-related websites.
That may be true of schizoaffective disorder, but it’s also true — in spades — of Islam.
Al-Zahrani apparently had written an email at some point, excoriating the Jews:
Now I have to say something to this idiot who said the Arabs are the grossest fuilure in the history of human beings. No failure equals the Israeli…your were f… up under a tolitarian rule in europe and the rule failed and you want to replicate it!!! how stupid is this? what failure is this? Einstein himself refused to join you doomed enterprience and Freud himself thought that you were theafts sealing even the moral innovatons of other people even the hummus you have stolen, the land, the water, resources of Phalistine…you are a bunch of psychopath theaves and murdurers…everyone is against you because of your unethical immoral criminal actions…you killed children!!! what else you want to be convinced that you are shame of humanity
Sure, our society has lots of nuts who commit violent crimes. That doesn’t mean Muslims inspired by their Islam are not deadly dangerous.
