At the time of this Islamic attack, no one in the mainstream media would utter jihad or Islam as possible motive — just as these running dogs for Islam always do. They scrub, whitewash the motive. But Atlas readers knew.
Of course, when the evidence is collected and the motive is clear, the media pack has moved on and never reports on how wrong they got it.
The victim was an Ahmadi, who are considered heretics by Muslims. They are persecuted, oppressed and targeted for death in devout Muslim countries, which is why I call out American Ahmadi leaders who stand with jihadists against counter-terror activists like myself.
‘THERE IS ONLY ONE PROPHET!’ Killer who murdered another Muslim makes clenched fist salute to court as he is jailed for life,” By Lauren Fruen, The Sun, 9th August 2016:
Tanveer Ahmed admitted the murder of shopkeeper Asad Shah at his newsagents
Today he was sentenced to life in prison and jailed for minimum 27 years for the killing.
As Ahmed was led away, he raised a clenched fist and shouted loudly: “Praise for the Prophet Muhammad, there is only one Prophet.”
Some of his supporters responded by raising their arms and repeating the phrase.
The victim’s brother, Athar Shah, said evil Ahmed “laughed and laughed” as his sibling lay dying in the street.
Today a judge sentenced Ahmed to life behind bars after he admitted the murder of shopkeeper Asad in Glasgow, Scotland.
Bradford father-of-three Ahmed claimed to have been offended by clips Mr Shah had posted online which he said ”disrespected the Prophet Muhammad”.
The Shah family, who moved to Scotland from Pakistan in the 1990s to escape persecution, belong to the Ahmadi community known for its non-violence and tolerance of other faiths.
The court heard their belief that Prophet Muhammad was not the final prophet was a view many consider blasphemous.
What many? Devout Muslims, that’s all.
In a statement released through his lawyer after the killing, Ahmed said: ”If I had not done this others would have and there would be more killings and violence in the world.”
Judge Lady Rae told Ahmed he must serve a minimum of 27 years before being considered for release. He would have been given a longer sentence had it not been for his guilty plea.
She said he had carried out a “brutal, barbaric, horrific crime” for which he had shown no remorse and even appeared proud of what he had done, and described the calculated nature of the murder as “chilling”, saying he had carried out what was in effect an “execution”.
Recounting the events of the March 24 attack Athar said he had gone into the shop to find his brother being attacked.
Mr Shah said: “I lost my brother there. That monster came and jumped on my brother’s face, right there in the street.
“He just moved on to the pavement and laughed while my brother took his last breath. He was laughing. He just laughed and laughed.”
A statement released on behalf of the family of Mr Shah said: “Asad’s family have lost a peaceful, kind and loving brother, son and uncle who can never be replaced.
“Most of his family have now left or are in the process of leaving Scotland, a country they came to seek safety in.
“They are grateful to the Lord Advocate, Crown Office and Police Scotland for their hard work and compassion.”
Mr Shah, 40, who ran a convenience store in Glasgow’s Shawlands area, was stabbed in a frenzied attack outside his shop after he had wished Christian friends “happy Easter”.
He died in hospital shortly the attack on March 24.
Ahmed, from Bradford in West Yorkshire, pleaded guilty at the High Court in Glasgow to murdering the “brilliant” family man.
Hours before he was killed on the day before Good Friday, Mr Shah posted on Facebook: “Good Friday and very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation.”

At an earlier hearing Ahmed claimed he killed Mr Shah because the shopkeeper was claiming to be a prophet.
He said he was standing up for the honour of Islam.
A statement read through his lawyers said: “This all happened for one reason and no other issues and no other intentions.
“Asad Shah disrespected the messenger of Islam the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Mr Shah claimed to be a prophet.
“No one has the right to disrespect the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and no one has the right to disrespect the Prophet of Islam Muhammad Peace be upon him.”
He denied Mr Shah’s Easter comments influenced the murder adding: “I wish to make it clear that the incident was nothing at all to do with Christianity or any other religious beliefs even although I am a follower of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him I also love and respect Jesus Christ.”
His statement was slammed by Muslim leaders at the time.Ahmed, a Sunni Muslim, drove 200 miles from his home in Bradford to Glasgow to confront Mr Shah before launching a deadly attack.
En route he commented on Facebook under Mr Shah’s posts, writing: “Something needs to be done.”
After the killing he sat calmly at a bus-stop waiting for police to arrive and arrest him.
Ahmed had admitted manslaughter but initially denied murder.
Mr Shah was found bleeding to death injuries outside his shop, Shah’s Newsagents and Convenience Store, in Minard Road.
He was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and pronounced dead on arrival.
He was described as a pillar of the community and a vigil held outside his shop 24 hours after his death was attended by hundreds of people , including First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.
