The president of Uzbekistan has died after ruling his country with an iron first for more than two decades, confirmed BBC.

BBC says Islam Karimov was one of the world’s “most authoritarian” leaders. The Wall Street Journal said he ruled Uzbekistan for 25 years both before and after the country achieved independence from Communism.

So how did he die?

The official cause of death was a stroke, said The New York Times.

The Washington Post says his death was announced Friday, September 2 and called him a “Communist Party apparatchik” who turned Uzbekistan “into a brutal personal fiefdom.”

The New York Times says he was 78 and ruled his country “ruthlessly.”

His daughter, Lola Karimova-Tillyaeva, had posted on Instagram a few days before that he had suffered a brain hemorrhage.

On Instagram, she wrote, “I would like to write here about the sad events that befell our family last weekend. My father was hospitalized after suffering a cerebral hemorrhage on Saturday morning, and is now receiving treatment in an intensive care unti. His conditionis considered stable. At the moment it is too early to make any predictions about his future health. My only request to everyone is to refrain from any speculation, and show respect to our family’s right to privacy. I will be grateful to everyone who will support my father with prayers.”

His daughter has also posted family photos on Instagram:

(Фото из личного архива, Март 2014 г.) Во избежание кривотолков здесь на своей странице я хочу рассказать вам о печальных событиях, которые произошли в нашей семье с моим отцом в минувшие выходные. По причине мозгового кровоизлияния, которое случилось в субботу утром он госпитализирован и находится в реанимационном отделении. Состояние его оценивается как стабильное. На данный момент ещё рано делать какие либо прогнозы относительно его будущего состояния. Я обращаюсь к людям с большой просьбой обойтись без спекуляций и уважать право семьи на "прайвеси" (личное пространство). Я буду очень признательна всем, тем кто изъявит желание и поддержит моего отца своими молитвами. ⬇️(Шаҳсий архивдан сурат, март 2014 й.) Турли хил гап-сўзларнинг олдини олиш мақсадида, бизнинг оилада ўтган хафтанинг охирида содир бўлган қайғули воқеа ҳақида ушбу саҳифам орқали сизга маълумот бермоқчиман. Шанба куни адамлар мияга қон қуйилиш ташхиси билан шифохонага олиб келиндилар. Ҳозир улар реанимация бўлимида тиббий муолажалар олмоқдалар. Ҳозирги пайтда ҳолатлари шифокорлар томонидан стабил деб баҳоланмоқда. Айни пайтда келгусидаги соғлиқлари борасида қандайдир тахминлар қилиш анча эрта. Мен сизлардан турли хил гап-сўзлардан йироқ бўлиб, оиламизнинг шаҳсий ҳаётига хурмат билан муносабатда бўлишингизни илтимос қиламан. Ушбу дамларда отамни ўз дуолари билан қўллаб-қувватловчи барча инсонларга ўзимнинг чексиз миннатдорчилигимни изҳор этаман.

The main enemy of the USA and Europe today is ISLAM.

ISIS members are just true followers and true believers of ISLAM.

Those who believe in Islam and follow the Quran should not be allowed to enter or to stay in the USA!

Tell me how ISIS, al Qaeda, the Taliban, Islam, plus our home grown local Muslim mass murderers living in the USA and Europe who are only obeying the commands of the Quran to murder non-believers are not a part of true ISLAM as probably read and taught in our local mosques?

Quran 2:191- “Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.”
Quran 3:85 – “Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.”
Quran 5:33 – “Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” or maybe “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

Quran 9:5 – “When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.”
Quran 9:30 – “The Jews and the Christians are perverts fight them.”…
Quran 9:123 – “Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.”
Quran 22:19 – “Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water melt their skin and bellies.”
Quran 3:28 – “Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.”

Quran 8:12 – “……………….. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.” or maybe “When thy Lord inspired the angels, (saying): I am with you. So make those who believe stand firm. I will throw fear into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Then smite the necks and smite of them each finger. 13That is because they opposed Allah and His messenger. Whoso opposeth Allah and His messenger, (for him) lo! Allah is severe in punishment”

Quran 2:191 – “And kill them (non-believers) wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers,”

What if Muslim Immigrants to the USA that do not murder US citizens as they are commanded to do in writing by their Quran let their children pray at a local mosque, read and study the Quran, and then some of their children might believe in the Quran and become mass murderers of non-believing US and European citizens as commanded by their Quran?

Why should people in the USA and Europe tolerate Islamic believers in our nations when Islam commands its followers in writing to “convert or murder those (Americans and Europeans) who do not convert to Islam” and then take his property and his women as your own?

The Old Testament Bible does call for stoning adulterers to death, but not killing all of those that do not believe in the God of Israel.
