Faithful or fanatic? {UK Muslim immigrant sentenced to life for murdering in-law family, own child}
Organiser - New Delhi ^ | April  16, 2000

IN a brutual incident of killing that reveals the practical influence of Islam, a Moroccan, Ibrahim Aderdour, murdered three generations of his wife's British Christian family in North London because she refused to bring up their daughter as a Muslim.

According to a report carried by The Times, London, Ibrahim Aderdour, an illegal immigrant who was earlier sheltered by the Trant family a few years back, stabbed to death his 16-month old daughter, Amina, his estranged wife, Sophie, 32, and her parents at their family home in Islington, North London on October 12, 1995. A British court has given him four life sentences on March 15, 2000.

The Trant family was subjected to a knife attack in which baby Amina was stabbed seven times in the throat chest, and back. Her mother Sophie, a childcare nurse at Guy's Hospital and former Sunday school teacher, and the grandparents, John Trant 71, and Vivien, 57, suffered similar wounds. John Trant was found inches from the front door of his home having tried to summon help.

The report says the Trants were charity workers who helped refugees and operated an ‘open house’. They had also sheltered the Rabat-born Aderdour when their daughter Sophie met and married him in 1989.

The report reveals that dispute over religion had begun even before the wedding. When Sophie took Aderdour to the family's parish church to discuss the ceremony, he reportedly accused the priest of trying to convert him to Christianity. His fiancee finally agreed to marry at a register office. Later, when she refused to bring their daughter up as a Muslim, he became increasingly violent. The fatal attack came after Sophie had fled from her husband and returned to her parents' home in Islington. On previous occasions too he had lurked in the bushes outside the house, brandshing a knief.

After the murders Aderdour walked to the bank, emptied his account and took a cab to Waterloo, where he boarded the Eurostar. He tricked his way into France without an entry visa by claiming that his brother had met with an accident. He was placed on the Interpol's most wanted list and detectives travelled to Morocco to trace him. He slipped back into Britain in July 1997, but a sniffer dog found him and two other illegal immigrants in a ship container at Dartford. Police failed to make the link and deported him to the Netherlands where too when his fingerprints were linked to his true identity, he fled again. Later, Scotland Yard made its Internet murder appeal, which was picked up by Dutch detectives. They saw Aderdour about to board a flight from Amsterdom to Newcastle-upon-Tyne. He was arrested on Christmas Day in 1998 and extradited to Britain.

After handing down four mandatory life sentences for the horrific crimes. Judge Michael Hyam told Aderdour: "The very fact that you killed your 16 month old daughter says a great deal as to the horrific nature of what you did. These were terrible killings all done in the house of the parents of your wife, who had welcomed you into their family and against whom you had no justification for holding any grudge."

If he hadn't been a Muslim, they might be alive.

I am willing to be that people in Great Briton will say that there needs to be a loosening of rules for immigrants and that "Britons need to understand Islam more."

What they need to do is send a message, not coddle people who murder in the name of their religion.

A lot of American liberals need to understand the significance of this tale as they too embrace the murderous thugs.

I hope this animal gets what he deserves soon. And I don't mean the life sentences.

"The problem lies not in our stars, but in ourselves, Horatio". Shakespeare already had this covered.

This is very like that woman that's trying to get her daughters freed from Saudi Arabia after their Muslim father kidnapped them.
She just would not accept that she was partially to blame because she either was ignorant of Islam or chose to ignore what might happen to her and her children.

I thought she took them to Saudi Arabia and found she couldn't leave with them. I think the kidnap one was the Iranian (same scenario) where the husband took the kids to Iran for a visit and never came back.

Let's hope that some of the other prisoners have sixteen month old daughters, if you get my drift.

There is a message here besides the sheer horror of the acts and the Islamolunacy that motivated them. This person was an illegal alien who even after commiting four murders drifted about western Europe for over three years. He could have easily returned to the Dar-al-Islam in that time if he chose to. This says something about the ease Islamowacko terrorists can slip about in Europe and, dare we say it, the US as well.

You said: If one family member had used a gun, some of them might be alive

Unfortunately, if one family member in Britain had used a gun in self-defense in this situation, they would have been charged with murder.

Non-Muslim women are insane to marry a Moslem. This woman had warnings before the marriage that religion would be an issue. Muslim men are allowed to marry non-Muslim women, but Muslim women are not allowed to marry non-Muslim men.

"...against whom you had no justification for holding any grudge."

Of course he had a grudge, his daughter wasn't going to be raised Muslim and her parents sheltered his wife and daughter. That deserves death according to Islam. This judge just doesn't want to face the truth, even in the face of this massacre.

Ibrahim Aderdour, murdered three generations of his wife's British Christian family

Just being a good Christian-hating liberal.

What that thing did is not the true nature of Islam. You cannot look at what he did and say that is the true nature of Islam ;the same way Muslims cannot look at all the things that happen in the world and say that is the true nature of every other religion. Christianity not being excluded especially since it is the largest religion in the world. That man is not a true muslim. and Maybe you should take the time to understand the religion, the way we understand yours before you start accusing people of things you know nothing about.(i.e.; that murder is the true nature of Islam.) murder is forbidden in Islam the Same way it is in every other God fearing religion.
