In a horrible story of torture out of the UK, two drug addicts had a conflict with three Muslim drug dealers. After a deal that went bad, the three Muslims lured the two addicts to a remote location and tortured them for hours before abandoing them for dead. One died of the torture and the other is in serious condition:
A haunting photograph has captured the moment a busker was led to his death by drug dealers who savagely tortured him and left him to die.
A concerned member of the public took the chilling photo showing Paul Pass and his friend Mark Andrews being kidnapped by Abdulmalik Adua, 17, and Rezwan Islam, 19, following a row over drugs.
Just one hour later, Mr Pass was dead after being stabbed in a main artery and beaten with a guitar so ferociously the wood splintered.
In the same sickening and brutal ordeal, Mr Andrews was made to drink his own urine and had washing up liquid forced down his throat before he managed to escape and dial 999.
The gang targeted Paul, 49, and plied him with drugs in exchange for taking over his home – part of a nationwide crimewave dubbed ‘cuckooing’, which keeps dealers off the streets and away from the public eye.
The vulnerable addicts had been lured to a supermarket in Gloucester to meet the dealers, who offered to sell them drugs.
Three of Paul’s friends could see he was being exploited by the pair so robbed Adua, from Woolwich, London, and Islam, from Gloucester, of drugs and cash in an attempt to reclaim his flat.
But they did not realise the lengths the furious dealers would then go to to take revenge.
Adua and Islam attacked and robbed the men and the following day Islam met Bilal Ebrahim Moosajee, 19.
They lured Paul and Mark to meet them under the pretence of supplying them with more drugs.
The court heard they stamped out a burning cigarette on Mark’s face before stabbing him in the hand.
Paul’s acoustic guitar was smashed over his head and he was stabbed in the leg, severing an artery and bleeding to death within an hour.
The trio stole Mark’s mobile phone but he managed to escape to a payphone and dial 999, but by the time paramedics arrived, his friend had died.
Moosajee admitted kidnap and manslaughter but Adua and Islam denied charges of murder, supplying Class A drugs and GBH.
Islam also faced charges of kidnap and robbery, and a jury convicted the evil pair of everything brought against them after a trial at Bristol Crown Court.
Detective Chief Inspector Julie Mackay told the court members of the community were instrumental in bringing the trio to justice, as people came forward with vital information following an appeal.
She also described the horrific scene in Mr Pass’ flat and the huge investigation involving 100 officers from three counties.
‘It was a very bloody and tragic scene. Straight away you could see this was a very vulnerable man,’ she said.
‘Immediately I wanted to know why did he have to die like this? They were both subjected to a horrible ordeal.’
DCI Mackay added: ‘We should be very clear that Paul Pass was a vulnerable drug user who was ruthlessly exploited and brutally killed by serious and organised criminals who had no hesitation in resorting to extreme violence.
‘Paul’s friends wanted to reclaim his flat because they realised he was being taken advantage of.
‘What they didn’t realise was the lengths to which the people they stole from with were willing to go and the consequences it would bring.
‘The fact Paul Pass and Mark Andrews were willing to meet up with Islam and Moosajee the day after the theft in the hope of scoring more drugs shows how dependent and vulnerable to exploitation they were.
‘What happened next was horrific. Adua and Islam tortured the victims and made showed absolutely no concern for the condition they left the men in, Adua simply commenting that he wished Paul would die. (source)
Now as horrible as this crime is, this crime is not particular to Islam outside of the fact that the main perpetrators were Muslim. However, as the article itself notes, this was a case of the all-too-common violence associated with the trade in illegal drugs.
If one thinks this story is terrible, which it is, then one should go back through the site archives and look at how similar and worse crimes are being committed by the drug cartels in America’s southernmost neighbor, Mexico, with the violence spilling over into neighboring Texas, California, Arizona, and New Mexico. The violence is so bad that Mexico is ranked as the second most dangerous country in the world in 2016, being surpassed only by Syria because there is an open war taking place there. It well surpassed violence in Iraq, and the violence of both Afghanistan and Yemen combined, the fourth and fifth winners, merely equals that which takes place in Mexico. Every day people are murdered, raped, and tortured to death in the most heinous of ways through cartel violence and sparing none. Ted did an entire documentary about the violence, which he entitled Hell Across the Border:
With all of the violence taking place, Americans still go in massive numbers to Mexico for vacation and do not care at all about the violence that is taking place around them, even though it is worse here than in Muslim nations.
So why mention all of this?
I bring this us as a “reality check” with regard to the reality of the violence that happens around us every day. Make no mistake, Islam is an evil religion that is inherently violent and driver men to commit heinous crimes for the sake of Allah and the spread of Islam. However, there are (proportionally speaking) very small numbers of Muslims in comparison to the greater population in the USA and even in many part of Europe, in spite of the increased immigration. In America, Hispanics constituted a sizable portion of the population and their culture has greatly impacted live in the USA, with much of it being embraced by Americans because they like it and then modified to fit their tastes (this is most obvious with the difference between traditional Mexican versus Americanized Mexican food) just like how Americans embraced the Italians, Greeks, Poles, Indians, and many other races. The violence that is found among the Hispanic peoples of Central America, which is equal to and worse than that which takes place in Muslim nations far away is right next to America and within us. It is not something far away- it walks among us every day.
Cartel violence is a horrible thing, and while it gets some media coverage, for the most part it does not get the coverage it needs to and the overall sentiment among the people in America is they do not care excessively about or in a way that is proportionate to violence with Islam and Muslims. Likewise, when violence does happen people will use tangental details- such as the religion of these perpetrators- to push their own messages without looking at the actual details of the story. The Matthew Shepard case was an infamous example of this, for while the man was fashioned into a “martyr” for the LGBT movement, he was not tortured and murdered for being a homosexual, but because it was part of an act of vengeance following a drug deal gone bad.
So as always, when you read the news, always try to keep a balanced perspective, remembering that sometimes they very things we hate (and for good reason) in others are completely overlooked even when they are in our own backyards.
