What is the relation between some religious festivals and extreme violence?
The story below of the Muslim celebrating the Islamic festival of Eid using his car as a weapon should make anyone concerned about Islam wake up. It now seems that Ramadan and Eid related violence has come to the UK and is not confined to the fly-blown third world hell holes that Islam has created in places like Sudan or Pakistan or other Islamic states.
The Manchester Evening News said:
“A motorist who ploughed into a group of revellers and left a blind man brain damaged is facing a lengthy stretch in prison after being found guilty of four charges of attempted murder.
Aqab Hussain used his Vauxhall Corsa as a ‘lethal weapon’ after his night out celebrating the Muslim festival of Eid took a violent turn.
CCTV captured the 21-year-old driving the wrong way down Princess Street in Manchester city centre before striking partially-sighted Michael Ward and two of his friends, Paul Hulme and Martin Harris, at the junction of John Dalton Street.
Mr Ward, then 28, from Bolton, was scooped up on the bonnet before being ‘deposited’ at the side of the road by the veering car. He was injured so severely that he was in intensive care for twenty days and spent around four months in a high dependency unit.
Meanwhile, Mr Hulme suffered fractures to his right leg after being ‘flipped into the air’, while Mr Harris suffered only minor injuries. A fourth member of Mr Ward’s group, Thomas Mallanphy, narrowly escaped injury after stepping back from the road, Mr Hussain’s Manchester Crown Court trial heard.
Hussain, of Gateshead Close, Rusholme, denied four charges of attempted murder in the trial but was found guilty by a unanimous jury after three-and-a-half hours of deliberation.
The victims were targeted after being the ‘aggressors’ in a brief street fight with Mr Hussain’s group in Albert Square in the early hours of August 21 last year.
Earlier that evening, both groups of men had been enjoying a night out at Silk’s Gentlemen’s Club at Lloyd Street. But after leaving the lapdancing venue, a member of Hussain’s group was punched in a scuffle with someone from Mr Ward’s group.”
Typical Islamic over-reaction. A small street scuffle, the like of which are not uncommon in British towns on a Saturday night, elicits extreme violence from a Muslim. As usual a smallish slight causes a massively over-violent reaction from a member of the ‘special needs’ religion of Islam. Unlike quite a few other cultures, members of the death cult of Islam often reach for the tool of ultra-violence before and instead of sorting things out in other ways. With most other confrontations of this type, the result would be punches and kicks and not attempted murder using a car. Islam is not a religion of peace and neither are many of its followers very peaceful either, as this case has shown.

For those who don’t believe that Ramadan and its associated festivals doesn’t have a violent aspect, just take a look at the death toll for Ramadan 2013. Islam clocked up over 1,600 deaths during the period of Ramadan 2013 in terrorist attacks, inter-communal violence and other killings.
