Aurora, Colo., nineteen-year-old faces first-degree arson and second-degree assault charges for setting fire to his home. These are just a few examples of the new America we have seen after years of Leftist policies.
Muhammed Ibraheem Abufia is the name of the young man. He took his sister’s dolls from her and placed them on top of a stove. KDVR says that he then “sprayed lighter fluid all over the house and lit 16 candles inside another room, because ‘God instructed him to’.”
Afia was more precise than the KDVR reports about the God he intended to worship (the KDVR also gave his name as “Afia”, but the police report has “Afia”. The report states that Afia was angry at his sister for having “idols” in her room. To burn them, he placed two of the dolls on a stove. He used lighter fluid to spray the residence but did not light the lighter fluid directly on fire. In an unoccupied and unsupervised room, he lit 16 candles.
Although it would be tempting to attribute this behavior to someone who is drug-addled, Afia “denies using any narcotics before this incident.” Allah instructed Afia to do all of his actions.
Afia will likely be acquitted of the charges of insane because he imagined Allah bending down from his heavenly throne to whisper into Muhammed Afia that he needed to set fire to his sister’s dolls as idols. Although he may not be sound, his belief that Allah would like “idols”, even though they were as simple as dolls for children, is a precedent in Islamic tradition. One hadith is a compilation of the words and actions of Muhammad and his immediate disciples. It states that Ali visited Az-Zutt worshippers of idols and set them on fire. Ibn Abbas stated: “But the Messenger of Allah said that whoever changes his religion, kill he .” (an-Nasai at 5.37.4065).
Afia was aggressive and defiant when firefighters and police arrived. Afia shoved one officer and fought those trying to get him in a patrol vehicle. At that point, his speech became rambling and he was referring to “Allah” and burning idols.
Afia’s belief that dolls belonging to his sister were “idols”, in the first instance, is surely evidence of madness. Perhaps not. A documentary was released in France a few weeks ago that revealed the extent to which Roubaix adheres to Islamic law. A shop selling dolls without faces for little girls was one sign of the advancement of Sharia at Roubaix. Because mainline Islam does not allow the representation of the human body in dolls, the dolls could not have faces. This was to avoid idolatry. Muhammed Afia’s sisters’ dolls probably had faced; Muslims are not the only ones who consider such figures idolatrous. Roubaix would be right at home.
What was the last time that a house in Aurora, Colo. was set on fire? This has not happened in Aurora, Colorado, or anywhere else in the United States. This is due to the Left’s dangerous combination of mass immigration and an abhorrence to assimilation. It violates the ethos of multiculturalism by requiring immigrants to adopt American values or at least conform to them. No one dares to criticize the practices of other cultures for fear of violating the Left’s sacred commitment to “diversity.”
It has resulted in an increase in the number of Americans who believe and hold assumptions that can lead to them running afoul the law. This is only true if the legal authorities are so ethnocentric that they arrest them for violating American law. A Detroit judge dismissed the case against a Muslim doctor accused of performing female sexual mutilation. The prosecution was said to have violated the doctor’s religious freedom. According to the Washington Free Beacon in Maine, Sara Gideon, a Democratic Senate candidate, repeatedly defeated bills to ban female genital cutting during her tenure as speaker of the Maine House of Representatives. It would have been considered racist to ban the practice.
The Left is creating an America where Muhammed Afia, a practicing Muslim, could be freed from prison without any charges in the future. This is closer than you might imagine.
