I do not know what may be in the head of the person who came begging for money by a Belgian priest.
A few days ago cowardly ISIS jihadis have tried to justify the slaughter of a French priest by using a thousand-year-old teaching – and warned that they will ‘spare no-one’.
Ibn Hazm al-Andalusi (Zahiri who died in 456) has said:
“And it is allowed to kill anyone aside from those we have mentioned, among the combatant idolators or the non combatants, such as the trader, the servant, the old man who gives his advice or not, the farmer, the bishop, the priest, the monk, the blind, the cripple. Spare no-one.”‘
In the North of Belgium yesterday the 65 year old priest Jos Vanderlee got stabbed and suffered injuries to his hands and tendons during an incident at his property in Lanaken, Belgium.
The asylum seeker knocked on the pastor’s door to ask for help and whether he could use his shower, reports Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad. This the priest allowed. Having received shelter and a nice shower did not seem enough and when he requested money but the priest did not want to give that he attacked the priest.
Authorities in Belgium have launched an investigation but they have stressed that the incident can’t be linked to terrorism at this stage.
Marino Keulen, the mayor of Lanaken, said:
‘Despite the fact that we are shocked, we must stress that this incident can not be linked to terrorist acts at this stage of the investigation.’
