5 men were brought to America after aiding our troops in Iraq. Though there is, as usual, no mention of these men following the religion of Islam, The CIA World Factbook reports that Iraq is 97% Muslim. With that said, I think it is fair to assume that most, if not all, of these men are Muslims.
And yet again, I would propose more proof that even the “good” Muslims aren’t really good. The helping of American soldiers on the field of battle does not counteract the indoctrination that comes from a religion that teaches that women are nothing more than property to be used and abused as needed.
In August of 2012 The Gazette reported:
Colorado Springs police arrested five Iraqi men Tuesday in connection with what they called a “rare” and “horrific” sexual assault on a woman early July 22. The arrests included one man who was a central character in an Army’s sergeant’s memoir of an Iraq deployment.
Sarmad Fadhi Mohammed and Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon were taken into custody on suspicion of sexual assault. Mustafa Sataar Al Feraji, Ali Mohammed Hasan Al Juboori and Yasir Jabbar Jasim were arrested on suspicion of accessory to sexual assault. All are in their 20s.
Lt. Howard Black, who heads the Police Department’s special victim’s unit, said the severity of the attack made it rare in the city, adding that the woman’s injuries could have been life-threatening.
“We don’t see these types of assaults typically in Colorado Springs,” he said.
Ramadon was featured in “A Soldier’s Promise,” a combat memoir by Army First Sgt. Daniel Hendrex published in 2009 . Hendrex met the 14-year-old Ramadon while deployed to Husaybah, a town in Al Anbar Province in Iraq , according to book reviews on www.amazon.com. According to reviews, Ramadon encountered Hendrex’s soldiers in December 2003, and pleaded with them to arrest him in exchange for key information about local insurgents. The book chronicles Ramadon’s relationship with Hendrex’s unit, of which he became an intricate part, ultimately earning the nickname Steve-O, the review reads. Later, in exchange for his services, Hendrex helped Ramadon immigrate to the United States.
The results of those arrests have led to 4 convictions already.
One co-defendant, Sarmad Fadhi “Levi” Mohammed, 26, is serving 16 years to life in prison after a jury convicted him last year of placing his penis in the woman’s mouth. Three others were accused of lying to police about what they knew of the rape and ended up with misdemeanor convictions.
The last of the five suspects is currently on trial for his involvement. The Gazette again reports on this story:
An El Paso County jury on Wednesday heard clashing portrayals of Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon, a 21-year-old Iraqi immigrant accused of “shoving” his hand into the rectum of a semiconscious woman, causing severe internal bleeding.
Charged with multiple counts of sexual assault, Ramadon – also known as Jay Hendrix – could face up to the rest of his life in prison if convicted.
His trial, which is expected to last two weeks, comes after an 11-month delay during which the case was held up as the Colorado Supreme Court considered an evidentiary dispute between prosecutors and defense attorneys.
Charged in the July 2012 assault at a west Colorado Springs apartment complex were Ramadon and four other Iraqi immigrants, all of whom were brought to the United States with the help of military members after assisting troops in Iraq.
Please feel free to read the last sentence again and please allow it to sink in. These are the good guys. In some circles they might be called “moderate” Muslims. There is no such thing.
If I could, I would make every adult in America read this story. The plain and simple truth is that Islam is not compatible with America. Helping our soldiers may be heroic, but that doesn’t mean that years of Islamic indoctrination will vanish.
You do not erase the teachings of Islam from a young man’s heart by simply bringing him to America. You do not magically dissolve the misogyny (hatred of women) that is a part of who these young men are.
Defending Islam is not a matter of defending religious freedom. When any ideology is directly oppressive toward the rights and freedoms of the masses then we must stand against it.
If I started a “Church of Rapists and Child Molesters” then all of America would stand against me. But when we call it Islam it doesn’t get the same response.
But it should because that is exactly what devout Muslims believe. It is the teaching of the Quran and the prophet Muhammad. This is not the exception. It is the rule.
So these five men didn’t strap bombs to their chests and try to kill our soldiers… So what?
Someone tell the poor Colorado woman that this makes them good men.
Wake up America.
