Pippa Bacca, whose real name was Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo, was an Italian artist who together with a fellow artist, hitchhiked from Italy to the Balkans to the Middle East dressed in a wedding dress to send a message of peace and “marriage between different peoples and nations.”
She was convinced that Muslims and Islam operate under peaceful ideologies. She was last seen in Instabul in 2008, where the pair split up and agreed to rejoin each other in Beirut.
Her naked body was found in a forest, and a 33-year old Murat Karatas, a Turkish Muslim man was detained after confessing to the crime.
Although there is plenty of information on the truth about the culture of Islam, liberals continue to argue and hold on to their bleeding hearts, constantly ignoring the facts,- facts that can be uncovered by doing a simple internet search.
In fact, the Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.
In May of 2015, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) recorded an audio message that asserted his faith was never a “religion of peace” but rather a “religion of war”.
BasNews noted the message was translated into five different languages.
“And we call upon every Muslim in every place to perform hijrah (emigration) to the Islamic State or fight in his land wherever that may be,” Baghdadi said in the message. “Has the time not come for you to know that there is no might nor honour nor safety nor rights for you except in the shade of the Caliphate?”
“O Muslims, Islam was never for a day the religion of peace. Islam is the religion of war.”
Pippa Bacca was last seen in the mainly industrial city of Gebze, while hitchhiking to Israel in the wedding dress as part of her “Brides on Tour” project aiming to plead for peace in conflict areas. She disappeared after using her credit card around noon. Police found her naked body hidden in bushes in a forested area near Gebze, after questioning the man suspected of the murder late Friday, the governor’s office said, Ynetnews reported.
Police tracked down the suspect when he switched on Pasqualino’s mobile phone, having inserted his own SIM card, an Italian Embassy official said. The official asked not to be named because he was not authorized to give information on the police investigation.
The suspect, identified only by his initials M.K., Had previously been convicted of theft, Anatolia reported. He was being questioned in police custody and no charges had been filed.
According to reports, M.K confessed to having picked up Pasqualino in his car, after which he drove into the forest, where he raped her and strangled her to death. Afterwards he attempted to bury the body.
Determinedly working for art
Pasqualino’s fiancé said in an interview that the artist was “very loyal. Unfortunately, she happened to meet the wrong man in the wrong place at the wrong time.” He also commended the Turkish police on a job well done.
The artist’s mother said, “We were hoping she had been kidnapped by the Kurdish. We were trying to contact Muslim officials until we found out she had been murdered. We weren’t particularly worried because she had been hitchhiking for a lot of time, and thus was capable of avoiding risky situations. She was a determined person when it had to do with working for art.”
“She thought that in the world there were more positive than negative people, and that it was right to be trusting,” said Rosalia Pasqualino, a sister of Ms. Bacca. “Trust is a very human factor, and she believed that to understand people, you had to get to know them.”
