AUSTRALIA: Court finds 4 Muslims guilty for sharia flogging of convert for drinking alcohol

In an Australian legal first, magistrate Brian Maloney yesterday found four men guilty of assaulting a Muslim convert in a religion-inspired whipping.

Herald Sun (h/t Colin W)  Christian Martinez, 32, was held down and beaten 40 times with an electrical cord in his Silverwater home in July 2011, leaving him bloodied and scarred. In his judgment, Mr Maloney said assaults committed as part of a religion that involved “mortification of the flesh” had never been before a court in any common-law country – until now.

Mr Martinez converted to Islam three years before the incident and fell under the wing of Wasim Fayad, 44, who he saw as his “spiritual leader” and referred to as Brother Fadi. The electrician had called Fayad and told him he wanted to make a fresh start after an all-night bender drinking and taking drugs at Ivy nightclub.

His mentor and three other men, Zakaryah Raad, 21, Tolga Cifki, 21, and Gengiz Coskin, 22, came to his house and he was then pinned to his bed as Fayad repeatedly lashed him with the cord. “I’m only doing this because I love you … next time you want to drink or take drugs you’re going to remember this pain,” Fayad said.

Yesterday Mr Maloney said the victim had withdrawn his consent while the beating was taking place and any permission he had given was uninformed, and also invalid as a matter of public policy.

Under the Sharia, flogging is a common punishment for both men and women

“Surely such incidents should not be tolerated by the courts (and) the common law provides the best deterrent against them,” he said. Mr Martinez said he consented to only three lashes, begging the men to stop as he cried in pain.

He said one of the men read from the Koran that he should get 80 lashes for drinking alcohol, but Fayad agreed they would give him only 40. He was told Allah had “cleansed” the “impurity” from his body as he repeatedly vomited during pauses in the whipping.

  1. Do you people know nothing? It isn’t in the nature of Islam to act this way, these people are rebelling against their beliefs. THAT is why this has happened

    • Susan,

      Your comment indicates that you are very ignorant about the true nature of Islamic Doctrine. You need to read the Qur’an completely and you need to read books about Islam written by ex-Muslims.

      It is time for you to get an education and learn the ‘Dark Truth about Islam.’

      Fact: Islam is a ‘Anti-Freedom Totalitarian Belief System’ and is an ‘Apartheid Bully Sharia Law System’ focused on one goal destruction of all non-Muslims and ‘Islamization of the World.’

      Learn the expansion history of Islam over the last 1400 years and how Islam has been responsible for the cruel slaughtering of millions of humans and animals using the most evil of methods.

      Islam is so anti-Liberty and dangerous that it is imperative that the ‘Political Ideology’ of Islam is closed down in the West.

      Islam is not a religion as we have been taught in the past… Islam is in fact the largest ‘Political Cult’ in the world that uses religion as a disguise to cover up its real intentions.

  2. The poor bastard must have thought that Islam was a religion of peace! lol
    Well, he deserved it. Next time, he won’t get into something without first doing some freaking research! He obviously knew nothing about Islam and how brutal this so-called religion is.


  4. Those evil Muslims did us a favour; they proved Sharia Law is alive and kicking in Australia. Most Australians refuse to believe Sharia Law exists here and our politicians are all like Ostriches with their head in the sand. Opposition against Islam in Australia is increasing, eventually the majority shall be forced to wake up. I hope they do before it is too late.

  5. For Kerser Trad to say the whipping had nothing to do with religion and was not sanctioned by islam -methinks your telling a big fat -taqiyya Keyser.

  6. He got only 40 lashes instead of the prescribed 80. He’s lucky his new friends were moderate muslims. if he becomes an apostate will he get half-killed?

  7. I remember when this first happen??I laughed and laughed,Did you get the D#cheads name ??CHRISTIAN !!! What a :tool:

  8. LOOK OUT BONNI Looks like we got another muslim troll on the prod fuck off TURTLE and spread your muslim bullshit on Loonwatch.Baptists dont kill people like mooslimes do PISS OFF

  9. We Baptists are harsh on drinkers too! Touch that booze and we’ll not let you have seconds at Homecoming!

    What? You got DRUNK? Then we must do the worst thing we know…

    You are hereby excommunicated! *DUN DUN DUN!*

    You are hereby sentenced to leave the church and be struck from our member rolls. Come back when you are ready to repent and we’ll welcome you as a lost brother!


    • LOL….I actually thought it was just the Southern Baptists that were soooo strict with drinking….and gambling too! LOL….The funniest thing is, most of them will talk bad about you for drinking, but eventually get found to be a drinker too….or you will stumble upon them in a casino or something. LOL

  10. Hey ! Look ! This happened in Australia, not in some sharia law driven muslim dung and sand heap in the backward, uncivilized Middle East.
    These bastards must be punished well for bringing their stupid, torturous laws into ANY civilized country. They should be all sent back to the sand pile they crawled out of.
    And the IDIOT who converted to their quasi-religion venerating a baby raping, murderous “Poppet” should be allowed to recuperate in a mental instution. How’s that female mutilation bunch of drek doing for you now, Moron ?

  11. Let’s not act like I-told-you-so’s to the victim. He was more likely a very misguided individual. I hope that this incidence will cause him to renounce islam and the pedophile mohamMAD (what is the root word in mohammad’s name?).

  12. Doesn’t Magistrate Maloney realize that Sharia law permits HISBAH (vigilante justice) to force Moslems to obey Sharia?

    Vigilantism is authorized by the mullahs and is normative Islam, rather than an aberration.

    Let’s hope the whipping knocked the delusional Death Cult out of Martinez’s brain.

  13. Martinez has paid for his stupidity.. one can only hope that he has learned his lesson. Will he be cured from Islam..? Will his brain start working?.. If not, then he deserves entirely what he is getting.. no compassion whatsoever.

  14. People who convert are either unattractive or low self esteem women, there were very few male converts and due to gender separation rules I never met any. If the information out there is correct most male converts have converted in prison or idealistic liberals who are so ridden by white guilt that they want to join the “oppressed people” of the world. Male converts are really in sad positions, they would likely not be allowed to marry a Muslim woman from birth so they have to marry another convert. They also get tapped for participating in terrorist activities- Jose Padilla and Richard Reid are just two examples.

    I’m sure sharia punishments are carried out in western countries, the constant stream of “honor killings” is a good example of this. I was threatened with just such a beating for allowing a Muslim man into my apartment and he tried to assault me. I was upset and went to the mosque authorities in the mistaken belief that they would be on my side but immediately I was told that this was my fault for letting him in. This was someone I had considered a friend and had been alone with on many occasions. I was told that my punishment for “fornication” was 80 lashes- I was terrified that I was going to be beaten with a belt or other implement. I know it was my fault that I got involved with Islam in the first place but I didn’t have access to the information like we do now.

    • So glad you escaped! The Muslims wanted to give you punishment for “fornication” 80 lashes – when you were completely INNOCENT! That is sharia where innocent victims are punished.

  15. Now,if any of the lefties wondered why this side of the sharia “law” is not on mainstream T.V. in the U.K.,there is your answer,again i have to ask,”Why is this not shown on National T.V. in the U.K.”?????

  16. Just Googled shitface #2, and wowie, should he ever keep his big stinking mouth shut.

    “In 2005 he said, “The criminal dregs of white society colonised this country and…the descendents of these criminal dregs tell us that they are better than us.”

    You hear that Oz readers? This Lebanese born shit-for-brains, father of NINE bastard islamist wannabee kids was also a water carrier for another professional antisemite named Sheikh Taj El-Din Hamid Hilaly, self-proclaimed ‘Grand Mufti of Australia and New Zealand’. YOUR ‘government’ let him in despite everything.

    “Australian Jewish organisations have regularly accused Hilaly of antisemitism, a charge he denies. The charges began in 1988 when Hilaly delivered a lecture to a group of Muslim students at University of Sydney on the topic “The Disposition of Jews in the light of the Qur’an.” He was quoted as saying:

    “The Jews’ struggle with humanity is as old as history itself; the present continuing struggle with the Islam nation is a natural continuation of the Jews’ enmity towards the human race as a whole. Judaism controls the world by…secret movements as the destructive doctrines and groups, such as communism, libertarianism, Free Masons, Baha’ism, the Rotary clubs, the nationalistic and racist doctrines. The Jews try to control the world through sex, then sexual perversion, then the promotion of espionage, treason, and economic hoarding.”

    Hilaly has not since apologised nor retracted his comments, in which he accused Jews of “causing all wars.”

    He’s not even original, those bigoted lies come straight from ‘The Protocols’.

    Another fine example of islamist ‘projection’.

  17. Hope they get at least five years each in jail, and ten for the ringleader, evil-looking black-bearded black-hearted BASTARD.

    And that taqiyya imbecile at 1:18 – Yes YOU Keysar Trad, you are only preaching to the choir. You and your ‘Islamic Friendship Association’ should relocate to darkest Sudan, or the Ayatollocracy of Iran.

    You fool NO ONE here!

  18. And yet the loony left & Lame Stream Enemedia keep insisting there is no Sharia law in Oz. This just happens to be one of the more notorious examples that got out
    because the dozy twat needed medical treatment. Ah, allah the merciful moonrock!

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer prick!
