Rob Higgins and his two sons were watching TV around 10 p.m. when a loud noise, described as jet plane breaking the sound barrier, ripped through the Wallace Drive home.
‘It was like a loud sonic boom. When I went outside, numerous neighbours came out to see what happened,’ Higgins said. ‘No one could see anything. Some people said it sounded like a major car crash.’
At least 10 neighbours were on the street looking around in curiosity when Higgins and his family were surprised by the sound.
‘Originally, I thought it was some huge thing was thrown at our house. Not a car, but maybe a big barrel or something large,’ he said. ‘I went outside a realized everyone heard something and it couldn’t have just been our house.’” Read more.
France: Toulouse Jihadist Was Recruiting Boys for Islamic Jihad, Sarkozy Claims Islamic Terror Has Nothing To Do With Islam
Here we have Mohammed Merah — an admitted Islamic militant who read the Qur’an, who read indoctrination materials from Al Qaeda, who enjoyed watching Islamic executions and beheadings — personally carry out executions of his own in the name of “Allah”, yet the “perpetually-drunk-with-the-wine-of-her-adulteries” French President Nicolas Sarkozy, in one brief sentence, personifies the lobotomy of politically correct and self-imposed delusion by saying that the Muslim faith had “nothing to do with the insane acts of this man.” This is precisely the type of Western mindset that enables and empowers terror organizations and their front groups such as CAIR and ISNA with the ability to destroy Western society from within. If reality does not wake us up today, prepare for a nightmare tomorrow …
“French police were warned nearly two years ago that Mohammed Merah, the Islamic radical suspected of murdering Jewish children and French soldiers, was recruiting boys for jihad – or holy war – according to Le Télégramme, a French newspaper.
The mother of a 15-year-old boy lured by Mr. Merah to his apartment where he was shown videos of beheadings, given a Koran and al-Qaeda indoctrination materials said she twice filed complaints with the police.
In an interview published by Le Télégramme, the woman identified only by a pseudonym Aisha, who said she lived in the same neighbourhood as Mr. Merah, blamed the police for failing to take her warnings seriously.
‘I am appalled. It took all these people [to be] killed for Mohammed Merah [to be] finally stopped,’ she said. ‘The police knew all about the danger of this individual and his radicalism.’
She said her son was forced to watch ‘unspeakable’ videos of women being executed with shots to the head as well as beheadings.
‘In his apartment, there was a huge Koran in his living room and several large swords hanging on the wall,’ Aisha said.
She said her son telephoned her and she went to Mr. Merah’s apartment to bring him home at midnight.
Mr. Merah was apparently aware that she filed a complaint. He threatened the family and tried to seize the son. His sister intervened and, according to Aisha, was beaten by Mr. Merah. He warned that the family would pay, like ‘all French atheists.’” Read more.
President Nicolas Sarkozy ‘The Muslim faith has nothing to do with the insane acts of this man’ – “France has shown its indignation and grit but has not allowed anger to take over. The Muslim faith has nothing to do with the insane acts of this man. Before targeting Jewish children, he targeted other Muslims. We must be implacable in defending our values. We will not allow this ideology to affect us. From now on, any person who habitually consults websites that advocate terrorism or that call for hatred and violence will be punished by the law. France will not tolerate forced recruitment or ideological indoctrination on its soil.” Read more.
Yes, you’ve read that right. The country that has become “a useful model for new Arab regimes” has now been added to the list of worst religious freedom offenders in the world. Alongside Egypt who now vows to one day kill all Jews, this is a nation that the Obama Administration is now actively arming, a nation that now makes verbal attacks against Israel “a central feature” of its political discourse. Welcome to the “new” face of “moderate Islam” …
By Stoyan Zaimov – “Turkey, considered a key U.S. ally in the war on terror, has been placed on a U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) list of worst religious offenders, alongside countries such as Iran, Iraq and North Korea – once known as the ‘axis of evil,’ a phrase coined by former U.S. President George W. Bush in the wake of 9/11.
In the last few years, Turkey was present on USCIRF’s watch-list of countries that might be committing religious suppression, but its latest report, released in March and covering the period between April 1, 2011 and Feb. 29, 2012, has placed the Eastern European nation on its list of ‘countries of particular concern’ category for its ‘systematic and egregious limitations’ of religious freedoms.
This now puts Turkey in the same category as the ‘axis of evil’ governments, along with Tajikistan, Myanmar, Egypt, Eritrea, Nigeria, Pakistan, China, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.
The main reason for Turkey’s placement on the list has been cited as the country’s treatment of its Christian minority, which is constantly targeted and discriminated against. Christians are a distinct minority in Turkey – the CIA World Factbook reveals that Muslims make up 99.8 percent of the near-80 million population, while Christians and Jews account for only 0.2 percent.” Read more.
Flashback: Turkey: Muslims Subjecting More Christians to Discrimination and Attacks, Followers of Christ Vilified in Media, Textbooks – “Despite some promising developments, Christians in Turkey continue to suffer attacks from private citizens, discrimination by lower-level government officials and vilification in both school textbooks and news media, according to a study by a Protestant group. In its annual ‘Report on Human Rights Violations,’ released in January, the country’s Association of Protestant Churches notes mixed indicators of improvement but states that there is a ‘root of intolerance’ in Turkish society toward adherents of non-Islamic faiths.” Read more.
Flashback: Turkey: From Churches to Mosques, See What Happens When a Secular State is Taken Over by Islamists – “A story in today’s International Herald Tribune (read here on the New York Times website) provides an interesting insight into exactly what happens when a secular state is taken over by Islamists. The piece concerned the Hagia Sophia of Iznik, an ancient church that brought 40,000 tourists to the town south of Istanbul much to the delight of the locals. Iznik was once known as Nicaea, and it was there the first Ecumenical Council of the Christian Church met at the Hagia Sophia in the year 325. But the Islamist government of Turkey has put a damper on the prosperity of those who profited from the museum by formally converting the building into a mosque.” Read more.
India: Young Woman Severely Beaten by Muslim Parents and Islamic Extremists for Daring to Thank Jesus Christ for Healing
“NEW DELHI, March 20 (CDN) — A young woman was thrown out of her home this month for daring to give thanks for healing in Christ’s name in a predominantly Muslim village in India’s West Bengal state, and then her parents helped Islamic extremists to beat her nearly unconscious.
The attack on Rekha Khatoon, 22, took place on March 9 in Nutangram, Murshidabad.
‘I boldly told those who beat me up that I may leave my parents, but that I will not leave Jesus,’ Khatoon said. ‘Jesus has healed me, and I cannot forget Him.’
In a village where hard-line Muslims have threatened to kill the 25 families who initially showed interest in Christ, leaving only five frightened Christian families, Khatoon was returning from worship with Believers Church at Al Hamdulillah Hall when her parents and Muslim extremists attacked her, she said. They called her a pagan, among other verbal abuse.
The mob also harassed the Christian woman who encouraged Khatoon to trust Christ as Lord, Aimazan Bibi, said Bashir Pal, pastor and founder of the village Believers Church.
‘On the same night, Rekha Khatoon’s father, Nistar Shaike, and about 20 Muslim radicals surrounded Aimazan’s house, shouted anti-Christian slogans, threatened to harm her and her family and falsely accused her of ‘luring’ Rekha to convert to Christianity,’ Pastor Pal told Compass.
After finding herself alone on a road after the beating, Khatoon had taken refuge in Aimazan Bibi’s home.” Read more.
