New Australian convert gets the first taste of Islam.

Lashing is part of the Sharia law. Consumption of alcohol is punished by lashing

A new Muslim got his first taste of Islam when four Muslims broke into his house and beat him for drinking alcohol.

The NSW resident Christian Martinez, 31, recently converted to Islam. He went out drinking with his friends on Saturday night, but was woken up on the early hours of Sunday morning, by four Muslims who had broken into his home. Three of them hold Martinez down while the fourth, Tolga Cifci, 20, lashed him 40 times with an electric cable.  The four Muslims were caught and charged by the police for break and entry and aggravated assault.  Consumption of alcohol in Islam is prohibited.

The court was told Cifci and the three other men whipped the victim because of “religious beliefs” and were enacting sharia. When Mr Cifci was arrested on Monday night, police found in his house the electric cable used to whip Martinez and a hard drive from the victim’s home.

Mr Cifci’s parents, who were also present at yesterday’s hearing, provided the $10,000 payment and $50,000 security bond to assure their son’s release yesterday. He will remain under house arrest with his family as part of his bail conditions.

The second man, 43, surrendered himself at Auburn Police Station yesterday. He was charged with aggravated break and enter with intent to commit an indictable offence, detaining a person in company with intent to obtain advantage, and two counts of stealing from a dwelling.

The man has been refused bail and will appear in Burwood Local Court today.

Magistrate Tim Keddy told the court the charges against Cifci were “extremely serious and violent” and “if convicted it is highly likely he will be sentenced to a term of imprisonment”.

He ordered Cifci to remain at home unless accompanied by either of his parents and is to report to Auburn Police Station daily.

Police prosecutor told the court Cifci’s actions were a “misconstruction and particularised usage of religious law” used to justify his part in the attack on Martinez.

Cifci’s solicitor Tunc Ozen told the court the accused was “a person of prior good character” but acknowledged his actions would create controversy due to his alleged links to sharia and the Muslim faith. Cifci will reappear in court on September 14.

    Sorry to say that Martinez deservs what he got. He should have investigated Islam before he takes such a giant step.

    Any way, those Muslims are ignorant about their own religion. Mohammad used to drink alkohol. When a terrorist die he is supposed to go to paradise with 72 virgins and a river of WINE.

    Besides, the western countries must make it clear that any application of the shriha will be met with a severer punishment.

    But, this is a good lesson to those who think of joining this evil system.

    MohaMAD must be in Islamic heaven with his virgins and wine and having a hearty laugh at these imbeciles. Well wait. Islamic heaven is fiction. MohaMAD must be rotting in hell and so will these guys.

    Yes, what a moron, he 'converted' to Islam and didn't realize that the consumption of alcohol is prohibited.

  4. Spiritual Student

    From what i understand, this punishment would have been authorized by a Imam?

    If so Australian police should also prosecute the Imam / Cleric that ordered this punishment! Imam is more guilty than the men that actual carried out the sentence

    Idiot ….. Lol , Now that guy will not dare to convert back to Christianity. Because apostates will be beheaded. I am sure those guys would have told him about Sharia apostasy LAW.

    ahahaha, ahaha if this story was not so serious it would be high comedy and better than some screen writers can create.

    Muslims break and enter into Christian' house and beats Christian severely with electrical cables for consuming alcohol, ahaha

    How did the Muslims know that Christian had consumed alcohol?

    Don't Muslims know that breaking and entering into houses is a crime also?

    Don't Muslims know that restraining and whipping someone with electrical cables is assault and is a crime?

    At least one of those house breaking Muslims had stolen at least two things (cables and a hard drive) from the home and that is thief and a crime also.

    Ahaha, sharia is screwed up and so is the minds of some do good Muslims.

    According to the Daily Telegraph (July 22/11)…

    Despite his ordeal, Mr Martinez yesterday praised Islam for helping him in his life.

    "Islam is a beautiful religion, it's a great guideline to life, it's a real way to live your life," he told the forum.

    "I mean, I'm not perfect. But in saying that, Islam helped me get through all of that, helped me through my past, and I believe I'm a better person because of Islam."

    What do we expect Christian to be critical of Muslims?

    Christian has already received one beat down from Muslims and appears smart enough to not invoke another severe beating from Muslims.

  10. TruePeace

    Well Christian has just proven he's just as loony as many other folks that join cults, only problem is Islam is one of the worst cults one could ever join. He asked for it.

    Prescribed Punishments (Kitab Al-Hudud)

    Sunan Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4473: Narrated Abdur Rahman ibn al-Azhar: A man who had drunk wine was brought before the Prophet when he was in Hunayn. He threw some dust on his face. He then ordered his Companions and they beat him with their sandals and whatever they had in their hands. He then said to them: Leave him, and they left him. The Apostle of Allah then died, and Abu Bakr gave forty lashes for drinking wine, and then Umar in the beginning of his Caliphate inflicted forty stripes and at the end of his Caliphate he inflicted eighty stripes. Uthman inflicted both punishments, eighty and forty stripes, and finally Mu'awiyah established eighty stripes.

    Sharia is screwed up and so is the minds of some do good Muslims.

    Those four Muslims who broke into Christian Martinez’s house and those who whipped him several times should go free. The police must find the great criminal who inspired these guys to mistreat Martinez, and that great criminal is Muhammad the false Prophet. The Australian government must punish Muhammad. And the punishment for Muhammad is to out law the Quran and the Hadith, never to be read, taught, and used as prayer books in the sovereign land of Australia.

    The koran say, "go into the house in which no one dwelt for the supply of your needs. But these muslims went into the house in which a drunk was living for the supply of their needs. To justify their disregard this clear injunction, they brought up the allegation of the victim being an abuser of alcohol. Well, had they scrape a barbeque grill against his back, it would have had the same effect; except, of course, the koran ask for manually flogging such a person. someone should whisper to Matinex ear the following words: how do you like mohammad now?

  14. st_fanuc

    LOL.. What a stupid action~~ Converting without knowing that these corrupted savage beast are harsh and merciless

    Maybe if they found this man's girlfriend getting drunk, they'll casually mate her while saying "allahu akbar" repeatedly.. Be a devout gangbangers~

    i think poiticians are equally dengerous as muslims!

    we on our own can and should do something

    I can see the barbarism of islam in the photpgraph, but studying the photo suggests that its not a scene from NSW. There are two men in uniform who look of a Middle Eastern country. Australian officers DO NOT wear such uniforms.

    Nevertheless islam is and will remain the way it has been since the times of murderer momo ( piddle be upon him). Any country that has muslims is doomed and Australia is no acception. Liberals and PC brigade will help the growth of Islam; they have no capacity to understand islam and if they do they piss in their pants to tackle the menace of evil islam.( no capital "I"s for this evil cult).
