1st Romana: All he’s doing is using you.
Madame Lamia: I know. But that is better than nothing.

We keep hearing about the fear of a backlash against Muslims over the Brussels attacks against Muslims and we’ve finally got an actual murder of a Muslim in the west to talk about.
Scottish police say the killing of a Muslim shopkeeper who wished Christians a happy Easter is being investigated as “religiously prejudiced.”
Vigils were held Friday and Saturday in memory of 40-year-old Asad Shah, who was killed Thursday night in Glasgow.
The AP jumped on this story and I’m sure many on the left were poised to jump all over the murder as an example of the western backlash, alas for them it was not to be:
Murder of a man of peace: Muslim shopkeeper who wished his ‘beloved Christian nation’ a Happy Easter is stabbed 30 times by a FELLOW MUSLIM who sat laughing on his dying victim’s chest
You see the victim was a member of the Ahmadiyya set, which I’ve written about many times. It is the image of peaceful Islam whose founder argued that as Muslims can safely practice their faith anywhere the only jihad to wage is “jihad of the tongue” to persuade others of the truth of Islam.
And the murdered man lived just like that
Deeply religious, Mr Shah worked to foster cross-community relations in Glasgow and had been planning to host an online debate last night with Christian friends about the importance of Easter. Friends said he observed both Christian and Muslim holidays, and never failed to send out Easter and Christmas cards. And he used his social media accounts to promote harmony on religious holidays.
But alas Islam considers the Ahmadiyya heretics, they are not permitted in Mecca as they are considered unbelievers and have been the targets of terror outside of the west for years.
But here in the west they are constantly held up as the example of “peaceful” Islam by the media and by other Muslims while never discussing that this sect that makes up 1% of Islam is completely rejected by the rest.
Newsbustes notes that the AP and the left in general are a lot less interested in the story now that it’s a story of violence by Muslims as opposed to violence against Muslims:
If the original news of Asad Shah’s death merited coverage, significant subsequent developments also deserve AP’s attention.
Will they get any? Don’t count on it. The evidence in this case thus far clearly supports the idea that genuinely moderate Muslims may in reality be very few in number, and that any public expressions of such moderation can be quite dangerous. We can’t have people learning such disruptive and disturbing truths.
But while the left and the media and the AP and the people of Europe in general are all in denial concerning the dangers of radical Islam but their level of denial is dwarfed by the denial of the Ahmadiyya.
For years they played along with the rest of Islam in the west in the vain hope that as the peaceful face of Islam they would eventually be accepted by the rest of the faith.
This is a pipe dream, a delusion. This murder is Scotland demonstrates this as do these facts:
The UK Daily Record, in a story which appeared after AP’s report, quotes a source who says that “The hardline Sunni Muslims call Ahmadiyya Muslims kafir. They say they are non-believers.”
87 percent to 90 percent of all Muslims, or about 1.5 billion people, are Sunnis. Additionally, “the majority of modern Muslim scholars continue to hold the traditional view that the death penalty for apostasy is required.”
The Daily Record also reported that authorities believe that the killer “travelled from Bradford (i.e., over 200 miles — Ed.) to launch a premeditated attack.” The killer was clearly on a mission to kill someone he believed was either a “non-believer” or “apostate.”
As the Muslim community grows stronger in the west the need to use the Ahmadiyya as a mask to disguise Islam as it is will continue to decrease and unlike the fools of the left these folks are familiar with Islamic culture they know what the Islamic culture actually thinks of them. They know they are being played as Useful idiots yet continue to do so.
The question is this: How many more Asad Shahs will have to die before the Ahmadiyya decide admitting the truth and acting on it is better than being used?
I’m back trying to get that elusive $61 a day for DaTipJar but lately I haven’t reported on my progress. Part of it has been I’ve been busy but the other part being the reports for March would be rather depressing.
If we made our $61 a day my annual Tip jar would come into today at $5185, it currently stands at $2857. That’s a deficit of $2328 an increase of nearly $1000 this month.
Or to put it bluntly As of March 26, we’ve made our goal up to Feb 15th a full 29 days behind our goal.
And it’s not due to a lack of traffic, our number in March remain consistent with the blog’s recovery from our previous doldrums as of today we are over 10,000 visits ahead of last March and on a pace to nearly meet March 2014 the final month before our unexpected traffic crash began.
As I’ve said I’d like to think we do good work here If you’d like to help us keep up the pace please consider hitting DaTipJar

If less than 1/3 of 1% of our February readers this month subscribed at $10 a month we’d have the 114.5 subscribers needed to our annual goal all year without solicitation.
If less than 2/3 of 1% did, I’d be completely out of debt and able to attend CPAC
If a full 1% of our February readers subscribed at $10 a month I could afford to travel across the country covering the presidential race this year in person for a full month.
