Daddy is a Martyr

E-mail Print PDF

On Thursday 9th December, SBS 2 screened a special documentary at 7:30pm titled “Daddy is a Martyr” which was about the lives of a “typical” martyr family in Lebanon and how they coped. The martyr in question was one Ibrahim Musa Mowasi who was a signals officer for none other than Hezbollah and was killed in a skirmish in 2006. Now I am sure you are going to ask “isn’t Hezbollah a terrorist organization supported by Iran and Syria which is committed to the total destruction of Israel, so why is the SBS portraying them as oppressed martyrs?” And Mowasi’s hero and closest buddy was none other than Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Hezbollah, who is even banned from entering Britain. This programme is blatant Dawah and SBS is wasting out tax-payer dollars in serving up this drivel.

In this article, we will analyse the SBS programme “Daddy is a Martyr” and show how utterly despicable it is, and an affront to decent peace loving Australians.

The film starts by commenting on the strong social network that supports the families of martyrs who die as good Muslims trying to kill Israelis. The lady’s husband, Ibrahim Mowasi, was killed in action against Israeli soldiers, leaving a widow and five children, of which the eldest is Zeinab who is 13. The film highlights the only son Ali, who the mother continually states will be martyred like her husband. The psychology of this is telling as the mother reinforces the stereotype that brave Muslim men martyr themselves for their Heavenly rewards including 72 virgins. At one point, the young Ali bursts into tears when his mother presses him to agree to dying as a martyr. Life as a signals officer for Hezbollah can’t be too tough as the film shows scenes of Ibrahim driving his family around in a flash late model Mercedes.

Young Ali is also shown as a member of the ‘Boy Scouts” wearing the traditional shirt with neck scarf and woggle. But the Hezbollah Boy Scouts are not the British version founded by Lord Baden Powell where scouts had a Christian outlook and were taught to treat people equally.

The Imam al-Mahdi Scouts were founded in 1985 as a Shiite movement to develop young terrorists for Hezbollah. The symbol of the organization includes the traditional Scout fleur-de-lis with a motto in Arabic: "Obey!" According to a report from the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, the Imam al-Madhi Scouts indoctrinate their members with an intense hatred of Israel and a determination to advance the despotic ideology of Iranian Supreme leader 'Ali Khomeini. There are 42,000 members between the ages of 8 and 16 in nearly 500 troops throughout Lebanon.

The film also depicts an elaborate “Martyr’s Dinner” at the Al Mahdi Education Centre featuring a male choir and brass band. Didn’t Mohammed say he was to destroy all musical instruments?

Scenes from the documentary show the extravagant graveyards where no expense has been spared. Given that Lebanese Muslims have been “martyring” Lebanese Christians for decades, I wonder if the same treatment is given to the Christians butchered by the Lebanese Muslims.

Brigitte Gabriel in her books “Because They Hate” and “They Must be Stopped” exposes the hatred and hypocrisy of the Muslim position.

Can you believe this?

 Lebanese Defence Minister Elias Murr Wednesday said he would reject any American military assistance to the Lebanese army if it comes with conditions that the weapons not be used against Israel.  Murr was commenting on the decision by a US congressman to suspend $100 million of military aid to Lebanon over concerns the weapons could be turned on Israel and that Hezbollah may have influence over the Lebanese army. He stated that those who want to help the Lebanese army but place conditions on how their funds or weapons are used, should keep the money.

So let me understand this.

The Lebanese army (read Hezbollah) won’t accept funding from the US unless they can use it against Israel. Obama is not a Muslim and a Jew hater, is he?

And the Lebanese Army attack Israel in their territory.

Reported 10th August 2010 by Melanie Phillips.

“Although the maintenance work was fully coordinated with the U.N. peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon, and the fatal shot was fired by the nominally independent Lebanese Armed Forces, Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Hezbollah, sent a television crew to film the ambush. He applauded the murder as a ‘heroic confrontation’ and threatened to ‘cut off the arm’ of Lebanon's enemies, ostensibly by firing his Iranian- and Syrian-supplied arsenal of more than 42,000 rockets at Israeli cities and towns”.


This man Ibrahim Mowasi is NOT a martyr.

He was a terrorist with a pathological hatred of Jews instilled by a satanic ideology called Islam.

This documentary is entirely inappropriate for Australian viewers and is insulting in the extreme that our tax payer’s dollars are used to promote a known terrorist organization.

This documentary shows an open hatred for Jews and an unhealthy parenting attitude where the mother craves for her young son to die as a martyr.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
