The Religion of Baking Children

This is a new one, not the article from Michael Yon a few days ago, though it is linked.

It turns out that the recent case of an Iraqi boy being baked by al-Qaeda and "served" to his parents is a repeat performance of what Muhammad's own companions had done.

Officials with the Barnabas Fund, an international Christian group working to help persecuted Christians, particularly those in Muslim-majority contexts, then confirmed Yon's report aligns with one of their own reports about such an atrocity.
And a researcher for the Barnabas Fund cites what he says is the foundation for such barbarism.
The researcher said the story is common to history books that include the story of Mohammed ibn Abu Bekre, a contemporary of Muhammad. The connections are these: Mohammad ibn Abu Bekre was the son of Abu Bekre, the first adult male to believe in Muhammad. Mohammad ibn Abu Bekre also is the brother of Aisha, Muhammad's 9-year-old wife.

The history stories recount, according to the Barnabas Fund researcher: "When Abu Bekre divorced the mother of his son Mohammed, Ali (the fourth Caliph) took her as a wife. Later Ali as Caliph appointed his stepson and the son of Abu Bekre, the brother of Aisha, the beloved wife of the prophet, as the governor of Egypt."

However, after five months, a rival Caliph army invaded Egypt to take it back from Ali, and they killed Mohammed ibn Abu Bekre, the history books say.

"Then they put his body (corpse) in a dead donkey, then they roasted the donkey and sent it as a gift to Aisha," the history books say. "From that day on Aisha never ate roasted food."

The researcher said this specific information comes from Ibn Kathir's history book, "al Bidayah wa-Nihaya," but the story is common to Islamic history books if they include a reference to Mohammed ibn Abu Bekre.

A Christian website, Muslim Hope, also documents the story with minor variations. In this version, Mohammed ibn Abu Bekre was executed, and the body then was put "in the carcass of a donkey, and then burned."

Robert Spencer of JihadWatch told WND the account is from Islamic tradition.
"He was put in the skin of a dead donkey and burned," he said. "It is absolutely true [that the events are part of Islamic history]."

The Barnabas Fund said its sources inside Iraq confirmed "a toddler was kidnapped in Baghdad in October 2006. The mother could not afford to pay the ransom, and so the kidnappers killed the child. They returned the body to the mother. The little child had been beheaded, roasted and was served on a mound of rice."

Nice. Read the entire article...Baking Children, A Muslim Tradition

Not since the Aztecs have a people been so brutal to their children, sacrificing them in the name of a religious war-tribe system.

Just when I think I cannot be any more repulsed by the "religion of peace," another story comes down the pike.

That is why it is impossible for me to handle any theory of "moderate" islamh the Koran itself is not moderate nor was its founder.
