Sotloff Family Spokesman: Murdered Journalist was Martyr for Allah (VIDEO)
Western liberals keep trying to out-Islam Muslims, but this may be a winner even in that dubious category. Maybe Barfi will conclude this by converting to Islam to win the moral high ground against ISIS. (via Brian of London of Isreallycool.)
As he stumbles through his awkward Arabic, claiming to know the Koran better than Muslims do, even while misunderstanding it the way that liberals say Muslims misunderstanding their religion, all he's doing is embarrassing the family and his own religion.
You don't defeat the enemy by arguing over their ideas. You do it by asserting your own.
Calling Steven Sotloff a "martyr to Allah" reduces him to the same level as his murderers. It's like calling Daniel Pearl a member of Al Qaeda.
The family of Steven Sotloff, the second American journalist beheaded by Islamic State militants, said on Wednesday he was "a gentle soul", and challenged the group's leader to a debate on the peaceful teachings of the Muslim holy book, the Koran.
Family spokesperson Barak Barfi ended the statement with off-the-cuff remarks in Arabic, saying "Steve died a martyr for the sake of God."
He then challenged Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to debate Islam, saying, "Woe to you. You said the month of Ramadan is the month of mercy. Where is your mercy?"
"Abu Bakr, I am ready to debate with you. I come in peace. I have no sword in my hand and I am ready for your answer," added Barfi, who is an Arabic scholar and research fellow at the New America Foundation think tank in Washington.
The answer will come with the next beheading. Any "mercy" in the Koran was propaganda for the Mohammedan conquests. A look back at history will teach anyone that there is as much mercy in Islam as water in the desert.
Barfi is a product of the New America Foundation, so this shouldn't be surprising, but it was a mistake for the family to let him do this. He's clearly emotional and having trouble dealing with the reality of Islam.
