This is a picture of the 26 year old hotel worker who was killed while in the custody of the British Soldiers in Iraq [follow the story here]. This is what his father said:
“When I saw the corpse I burst into tears and I still cannot bear to think about what I saw. I was horrified to see that my son had been severely beaten and his body was literally covered in blood and bruises … He had a badly broken nose. There was blood coming from his nose and mouth. The skin on one side of his face had been torn away to reveal the flesh beneath. There were severe patches of bruising over all of his body. The skin on his wrists had been torn off and the skin on his forehead torn away and there was no skin under his eyes either.”
I read that description over and over until I knew my heart couldn’t bear anymore of it. Subhaan’Allaah, may Allaah’s curse be upon all of those responsible for this. These animals who live in the bodies of human beings made a big deal when their panzy soliders were detained in Iran and treated with luxury, while they do this to our brothers [don’t tell me he was a shi`aa ’cause I don’t give a damn]? These [the soldiers, including the British, the American and the Canadians] animals, and I ask Allaah to humiliate them in both this world and the hereafter, have lost the right to be referred to as “people” or “humans” because they’re nothing but cold-blooded barbarous beasts. They are the real terrorists. They are the one’s responsible for the atrocities committed all over the world. Its their people who randomly massacre innocents. Who knows the reasons why they do this, but perhaps for some it is simply the work of a psychopath whereas for others like these soldiers its utter and pure hatred for Muslims.
This story of Mousa is just one of the millions that are unspoken of. Imagine, that their blood on not only on the hands of these scum bags, but also us, Muslims due to our sheer silence over this.
What more will it take for us to wake up? Does something like this have to happen to every single muslim family (may Allaah protect us all) for us to realize that these Muslims who may not be our kin, are still our brothers and sisters? They are as beloved to us, as our blood brothers.
Seven soldiers were acquitted in March after Mr Mousa’s death. Another, Corporal Donald Payne, 35, of the QLR, admitted the war crime of treating a number of Iraqis in his custody inhumanely. He became the first British convicted war criminal and is awaiting sentencing.
Oh Allaah, bring them to justice and send your wrath upon those who commit atrocities against the Ummah of your beloved (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and grant us the strength to speak the truth, aameen.
