UK Islamic tolerance alert: Four Muslims slash teacher's face and fracture his skull 'for teaching other religions to Muslim girls'Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
The teacher wasn't proselytizing ... he was simply teaching a world religions course. But for Akmol Hussein, Sheikh Rashid, Azad Hussain, and Simon Alam, such a distinction matters not at all. As Robert Spencer points out, non-Muslims who proselytize for their religions among Muslims face a death penalty according to Islamic law, so since these Muslims didn't kill the teacher - they just fractured his skull, one could suppose that makes them "moderates."
Four men launched a horrific attack on a teacher in which they slashed his face and left him with a fractured skull because they did not approve of him teaching religion to Muslim girls.However, even with prior knowledge of the intention of the Muslim thugs to attack Smith, the police made no effort to protect him!
Akmol Hussein, 26, Sheikh Rashid, 27, Azad Hussain, 25, and Simon Alam, 19, attacked Gary Smith with a Stanley knife, an iron rod and a block of cement.
Mr Smith, who is head of religious education at Central Foundation Girls' School in Bow, east London, also suffered a fractured skull....
Detectives made secret recordings of the gang's plot to attack Mr Smith prior to the brutal assault.
The covert audio probe captured the gang condemning Mr Smith for 'teaching other religions to our sisters', the court heard.As outlandish as the attack was, the fact that the police did nothing to protect the teacher makes the incident all the more disturbing. Was the police's failure due to political correctness?
The RE teacher was targeted as he made his way on foot along Burdett Road in nearby Mile End on July 12 last year, Snaresbrook Crown Court was told.
Prosecutor Sarah Whitehouse told the court: 'The evidence from what was said on the probe points overwhelmingly to a religious motive for this attack.'
It is believed the gang had made two earlier attempts to get at the teacher.
They were due to stand trial for the attack at Snaresbrook Crown Court but pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
A fifth defendant, Badruzzuha Uddin, 23, admitted assisting the thugs by hiding blood-stained clothing....
