Killing Gaddafi by beating, after he has surrendered is an act that does not suit Islam
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV dated October 22nd, 2011
ADNAN OKTAR: Some people have dissimulated Islam in the world, they are causing Muslims being persecuted in Europe. Look, they have persecuted Muslims in Libya, they have ruined them. That rube has had his face smashed in, he had laid the ground for his being beaten to death. Those who have killed him like that are ignoble scoundrels. They are sordid people, recording him like that with video cameras. I mean they are giving the image of such a brutal, such a despicable type of man. They are giving the image; "this is how a Muslim is." Those stupid men, those scoundrels.. They have left the man[Gaddafi] in a welter of blood; look at this ignominy. Do you have a license to kill that person? You bovine! If the man has surrendered himself, you just take him to the government and deliver him. You animal! How is it acceptable for you to beat a man to death? And then he has his picture taken grinningly standing over him while making a V sign with his fingers. Those scabs! They are attacking the man like a rabid dog and misrepresenting Muslims as if they were such sanguinary and brutal people; as if they were persecutors. And we are trying to make a man out of such scoundrels! Insha'Allah. You opportunist scoundrel! You were the toadeaters, bootlickers of him at the time, you asinine! They were the toadeaters of Gaddafi! They were dancing attendance on him, crookedly. They are just turning towards the strong one, whoever he is. They were the toadeaters, bootlickers at a time when he is the strong one and they beat the man to death when he is weak, they beat the man to death. This is a grave persecution and a grave impertinence. You animal! The man says "I surrender!" There is law, there is the law of war. When one says "I surrender!" it is over! You can only take him as a prisoner, you can only hold him captive, that is all. How is it acceptable to beat a man to death? The man says; "that is a sin, do not do this!" and they still go on with the beating. Those animals, and hundreds of them are having their pictures taken as if it is a big deal and having it videotaped as if they have acted as heroes. That is a grave persecution and a grave immorality. What he [Gaddafi] did at the time was a grave persecution and a grave immorality; but what they did is a grave persecution as well. Love did not settle in their souls, affection did not settle in their souls. [All they know is] chopping up, cutting, beating, being sordid, stinking; having women with beards and moustaches, having men all scabby in a messy appearance like that of a badger, beating people to death, having their pictures taken grinningly showing their savage yellow filthy teeth; this is how these animalistic people present Islam to the world. The damage those give to the religion is incomparably bigger than the damage given by the irreligious people. How can a man be beaten to death? The man says "I surrender!" what else should he say? May Allah guide them to the true path, may He give them common sense. These are the portents of our being in the End Times, the portents of the system of the Mahdi. See how barbaric, how relentless and how cruel they present Muslims. They are greedy when it comes to money.. Look, they say that they will give 2 billion to the one who kills him [Gaddafi]. And they do so in a greedy manner like an assassin. There used to be such scenes in the old American films; there were men who are searched with signs saying "Wanted! This much money will be given to anyone who will find him dead or alive.." That is the same mentality. Muslim does everything for the approval of Allah. If you catch hold of that person, you would take him as captive for the approval of Allah, according to the laws of war. Take him and bring him to justice. You bovine, you scoundrel! How can one beat another to death? They have left him in a welter of blood. One cannot even look at the picture of him. How can such savageness, such persecution be acceptable? That was the same with that fool, that delirious one [Gaddafi]. He had slaughtered, martyred thousands of Muslims. And they tell me "why do you object to those bigots, why do you not act like them?" Well, being as filthy, as vulgar, as stupid as those people are, is-unlawful for a Muslim. A Muslim is obliged to be clever, high quality, loving, compassionate and merciful, he is obliged to be just and wise. How is such a life like that of an animal be acceptable? It is very important to make a man out of these cattle-like people. This is why we are putting an effort for this.
