Ruthless, Savage Punishments of Political Islam — Invoke Nemesis, Don’t Invite Your Enemy to Dinner

June 26, 2009

Not Twitter but AP seems to have brought us his contorted face:

Iranian senior hard-line cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, delivers a Friday “AP – Iranian senior hard-line cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, delivers a Friday prayer sermon, at the Tehran University …”

Parisa Hafezi Parisa Hafezi TEHRAN (Reuters) – bottom-lined the purpose of the so-called prayer sermon:
… “I want the judiciary to … punish leading rioters firmly and without showing any mercy to teach everyone a lesson,” Ahmad Khatami told worshippers at Tehran University. …Khatami … said the judiciary should charge the leading “rioters” as being “mohareb” or one who wages war against God.

“They should be punished ruthlessly and savagely,” he said.  Under Iran’s Islamic law, punishment for people convicted as mohareb is execution.

In other words, the Ayatollah wants to kill them.  Ruthlessly and savagely. Stripped down and available for all to see, political Islam’s message today in Iran is the following:
Kill them — for wanting their votes to count;  Kill them  (the “they” who “should be punished ruthlessly and savagely” according to the Ayatollah because of “war;”   Kill them for a war where dominant males define what they want as “God” and project their own demonic behavior upon others who wish to be free of them.   (Click on this blog’s category of “Demonic Males” not as woo-woo religious concept but as hard, Harvard science about male destructiveness and violence relevant to human society.)
Don’t call it spiritual, don’t call it justice, don’t invite it to dinner.  Political Islam needs an invocation of Nemesis spiritually to end its reign. (Click on category, Nemesis.)
Political Islam will never be a friend to any freedom-lover (and that goes double for its whammy against the lives of women as women, religiously designated an underclass by male trauma for male control — not that fundamentalist Christianity and all other male-designed fundamentalist religions do not also oppress women as women, inherent to maintaining sexual politics around the globe).
It’s not that political Islam is the only politics against which Nemesis ought be spiritually invoked.
It’s just that political Islam does not dress up its hatreds in hypocrisy, making the hating easier to see for what it is, in the longest war.
