Imam's Report Lead to Disabled Grandson Too Late

First lets drop the part about the training to shoot up schools the boy's father was allegedly doing to these boys. Siraj Wahhaj and the mosque claim it not true.

I'm not saying it isn't. I'm saying I don't know.

But take a moment to look at the rest of the case here at Yahoo.

In Facebook messages, Naeemah Rashid, Ramzi's sister-in-law, told The Associated Press that she, too, was surprised by Wahhaj's actions, saying he had always valued the closeness of their family.

Rashid also recalled from Atlanta the deep bond between the boy and his mother, who couldn't leave the room without him crying.

While the boy could not walk, Rashid remembers that he smiled and laughed as he watched his cousins play.

"Of course this is a hard time for her," Rashid said of the mother.

Ramzi, who is from Morocco, filed for divorce in December the same month neighbors say Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and others arrived in Amalia, New Mexico.

Its a widely held tradition in Islamic nations that women cannot file for divorce and where they can seldom do they win custody away from a father. This is the prevailing attitude and Islamic, if you will, custom.

Next the boy is disabled, specifically cerebral palsy and epilepsy that was causedd by a stroke at birth. Its a common thing.

Anyway the younger Siraj Ibn Wahhaj not only felt justified in taking the child from his mother, he also believed the boy was possessed and conducted an exorcism.

I'm not saying this is a common superstition among radical Muslims, but its a common superstition among radical Muslims. That everything is either the Will of Allah or the work of Jinn (Islamic Demons).

So even a common medically explained condition can become the work the devil.

So give the old man some slack, he at least did the right thing and reported the child's location to the authorities. Also he'll have to live for the rest of his life knowing the radical faith he preached ended up causing the death of his very own grandson at the hands of his own son.

Leave him with that burden, one can only hope that his son Siraj never walks free again.
