Mauritania: Islamists Threaten To “Tear Out The Eyes” Of Rights Activist For Requesting Fairness In Apostasy Trial


The lies of Islam are entwined with the laws of Islam, and those who are blinded by its lies would love to “tear out the eyes” of all who can see the injustice of its laws …

Hadith, Bukhari 9.84.57, “Muhammad said, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.’”

By Tom Miles, Reuters – “The leader of a Mauritanian group has issued a threat on his Facebook page to ‘tear out the eyes’ of a rights activist for demanding a fair trial for a man charged with turning his back on Islam, a U.N. official said.

The United Nations on Friday urged the Mauritanian government to protect human rights activist Aminetou Mint El-Moctar, who is well-known in the Islamic republic for campaigning for women’s rights and against human trafficking.

The threat against El-Moctar was made in a posting by the leader of a little-known Mauritanian group called Friends of the Prophet and has been repeated on other social media. The group called the threats a ‘fatwa’, or religious edict.

Lawyers have been unwilling to defend the man charged with apostasy, making it impossible for him to get a fair trial, U.N. human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said.

‘The horrendous threats against Ms. Mint El-Moctar, simply for pointing this out, starkly underline the importance of her public call that a fair trial must be ensured and illustrate how difficult that will be,’ he told a regular U.N. briefing.

‘The threats are based on a ‘fatwa’ issued by the leader of the movement known as Friends of the Prophet and declare that ‘whoever kills her or tears out her eyes will be rewarded by God’,’ Colville said.

El-Moctar has asked for government protection but it was not granted …” Read more.

Flashback: Study: Atheists And Freethinkers Face Death Penalty In 13 Countries — All Muslim – “It brought to the fore a full list of countries where execution, usually public beheading, takes place. The study includes Afghanistan, Iran, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritania, Nigeria, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates and Yemen. The list of countries in the study is higher compared to seven out of 60 countries surveyed last year. The study showed that the offenses that warranted public execution are blasphemy and apostasy, or when a believer renounces the faith or switches to another religion… The study asserted that when a person criticizes religious faith in these countries, his action is frequently treated as a felony that can be equated to blasphemy, which is punishable by death.” Read more.

Flashback: Mauritania: God-Given Dreams Are Drawing Muslims To Christ – “A Christian who recently visited the country described the general situation of Mauritanian believers. ‘You can have freedom of speech, if you are a Muslim. You can have freedom of religion, if you are a Muslim. It is in fact OK to be a Christian, but it is offensive to speak of Jesus as anything other than one of the prophets.’ In this setting God is doing wonders, despite the guards that sometimes stand at church doors to ensure that Mauritanian citizens don’t enter. God has given dreams to Mauritanians even in remote areas. In the interior of the country, an Imam showed the Jesus Film in a mosque. The Iman later died and the results are unclear, but such seed sowing needs to continue. By God’s grace, there are now Mauritanians following Christ in many countries around the world.” Read more.
