Ahmadimwit’s Imam says “Islam Allows Raping, Torturing Prisoners”

Well, so much for our mistreating prisoners in Abu Ghraib or Gitmo! We did not even treat the Muslim prisoners to the treatments that they would have expected in their culture! How silly of us!

According to a September 2, 2009 article in Israeli National News, one of Ahmadimwit’s leading Imams, Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi Mesbah-Yazdi, who is reported to be Ahmadimwit’s “personal spiritual guide”,  made some of the following statements when questioned about the alleged rape and torture of prisoners in Iran. This information is taken from “Ahmadinejad’s Imam: Islam Allows Raping, Torturing Prisoners“, by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz.

Asked if a confession obtained “by applying psychological, emotional and physical pressure” was “valid and considered credible according to Islam,” Mesbah-Yazdi replied: “Getting a confession from any person who is against the Velayat-e Faqih (“Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists”, or the regime of Iran’s mullahs) is permissible under any condition.” The ayatollah gave the identical answer when asked about confessions obtained through drugging the prisoner with opiates or addictive substances.

“Can an interrogator rape the prisoner in order to obtain a confession?” was the follow-up question posed to the Islamic cleric.

Mesbah-Yazdi answered: “The necessary precaution is for the interrogator to perform a ritual washing first and say prayers while raping the prisoner. If the prisoner is female, it is permissible to rape through the vagina or anus. It is better not to have a witness present. If it is a male prisoner, then it’s acceptable for someone else to watch while the rape is committed.”

This reply, and reports of the rape of teen male prisoners in Iranian jails, may have prompted the following question: “Is the rape of men and young boys considered sodomy?”

Ayatollah Mesbah-Yazdi: “No, because it is not consensual. Of course, if the prisoner is aroused and enjoys the rape, then caution must be taken not to repeat the rape.”

As I mentioned in a twitter post, virginal female prisoners, who are to be executed, are routinely raped by a prison guard the night before their execution. This is so that they do not go to heaven, because any woman, in Islam, who dies a virgin, for any cause, goes to heaven. Obviously, if a prisoner is in jail and being executed because she did something against Iran or Islam, the political and spiritual leaders of Iran would not want her to go to heaven. So, they make sure she is not a virgin when she is executed. This was confirmed by the Ayatollah:

“If the judgment for the [female] prisoner is execution, then rape before execution brings the interrogator a spiritual reward equivalent to making the mandated Haj pilgrimage [to Mecca], but if there is no execution decreed, then the reward would be equivalent to making a pilgrimage to [the Shi’ite holy city of] Karbala.”

Now, where is the main stream media on this issue? “Present” I guess, as Obama would say. For that matter, where is Obama on this outrage?! All he wants to do is “make nice” with Muslims and Iran. I say, this regime needs to be brought down, and it cannot happen too soon. The longer we wait, the more nukes they will have to use against us, and Israel, and Saudi Arabia, and…, and…, and….

Read it all. There is even more outrageous stuff in the original article, unless you are too sick, already, from reading this.
