Nigeria: ‘Proud Soldiers of Allah’ Vows to Take Down Government and Destroy Christianity, ‘We Will Devour You … Our Joy Is To Die In Jihad”
John 16:2b, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.”
BY EMEKA MAMAH & SAM EYOBOKA – “KANO – Islamist sect, Boko Haram, has threatened to bring down the Federal Government led by President Goodluck Jonathan within three months. Purported leader of the sect said this in his second video posted on the Internet yesterday.
The 14 minutes, two seconds video of Abubakar Shekau seen on YouTube was in response to Jonathan’s comments while in South Korea, about two weeks ago, that the Boko Haram phenomenon would be under control by the middle of this year.
The sect’s threat came even as police yesterday confirmed that the death toll from an attack by unknown gunmen suspected to be members of the Islamist group on a town along Nigeria’s border with Cameroon has risen to no fewer than 10. Boko Haram’s attacks have left over 1,000 people dead since mid-2009. Apart from the latest attack in Borno, about 46 people died following bomb attack on residents of Kaduna on Easter day.
Christians from the 17 Southern states of the country had at an extraordinary meeting in Lagos on Wednesday appealed to the Northern elite, including religious leaders and politicians to rise to the challenges of insecurity which is capable of breaking up the country…
‘You, Jonathan, cannot stop us; instead we will devour you in the three months like you are boasting,’ Shekau said in the video entitled ‘Message to Goodluck Jonathan’. He was flanked by four masked men holding rifles as he spoke.
‘We are proud soldiers of Allah; we will never give up as we fight the infidels. We will emerge as winners … we will finish you and end your government,’ Shekau said in Arabic and the Hausa languages…
In the preamble of the message, Shekau vowed that it must destroy Christians and Christianity in Nigeria particularly those killing Muslims in Nigeria just as it said it will also kill all Muslims aiding the arrest and harassment of its members.
Shekau further said: ‘If death is your worldly gain, for us, it is eternal victory to die working for Allah. Our joy is to die in Jihad for Allah against infidels like you…
We are not doing physical human service, but Allah’s work … We are not afraid because we are not doing man’s work but Allah’s work …’” Read more.
By Jeremy A. Kaplan, FOX News – “Questions about the incredible images of ping-pong ball sized stones forming a four-foot deep wall on the Texas panhandle were answered Friday when the National Weather Service declared them legitimate — with a warning that you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Baseball- or even softball-sized hail could hit the South this weekend, NWS officials warned Friday.
‘I do think we’ll see larger hail over the next couple days,’ Justyn Jackson, a meteorologist with the Amarillo, Tex., Weather Forecast Office, told FoxNews.com. ‘It’s possible that we could maybe see baseball-sized hail, maybe even softball-sized. That’s not out of the realm of possibility.’
‘We think it’s going to be east of our area — Oklahoma, Kansas, those areas,’ Jackson said.
Images posted on the NWS Facebook page late Thursday showed some of the six scientists and meteorologists sent to the sparsely populated region of Potter County, where hailstones the size of golf balls or ping-pong balls fell following a severe and slow moving thunderstorm that drifted over the Texas panhandle.
The National Weather Service estimated that in 2 hours in the late afternoon, 5 to 6 inches of rain fell in a very small area in Northern Potter County, 26 miles north of Amarillo.
‘We had a slow moving thunderstorm develop about 20 miles northwest of Amarillo that parked itself over the northern part of Potter County — it produced quite a bit of hail,’ Jackson said.
One picture showed a Potter County fireman standing near what appears to be a giant gray boulder, about shoulder height — actually a block of ice compacted by rain and floodwater across the area.
‘Hail … up to the size of golfballs fell with the heavy rain,’ the Weather Service said in an advisory. More severe even than golfballs falling from the sky was the runoff from the heavy rains, which pushed the hail into three to four foot drifts across U.S. Highway 287 — closing the route for over 12 hours due to flooding.” Read more.
Revelation 12:6, “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days.”
The West has generally been considered a safe place for Jews and Christians, but if immigration officials get their way in some Western nations, it seems to me that the persecuted people of God might want to reconsider Sweden as one of those prepared places. Apparently, there’s another woman that some Western officials seem to be more interested in …
Mohabat News – “After the immigration office of Sweden decided to deport Iranian asylum seekers, among whom are some Iranian Christians, a number of Human Rights and political activists made numerous efforts to prevent this from happening. Among these efforts we can mention the Federation of Iranian refugees held a demonstration in Sweden (Feb. 13) to protest the deportation verdict of one asylum seeker and the arrest of another refugee, as well as the presentation of a statement by four Human Rights activists to the Swedish immigration office.
In this statement it was written that “we are four Iranian Human Rights activists who object to the racist politics of the Swedish government towards the asylum seeker’s community and strongly condemn the deportation of Mohammad-Reza Hamedi on February 15, 2012. We call on the immigration office of this country to immediately release asylum seekers including Mohammad-Ali Hodaei and Yasin Elyasi. They pleaded with this office to show a more humanitarian behavior towards these people.” Read more.
Flashback: Losing Malmo: Sweden Surrenders Their Third Largest City … to Muslims – “Do you remember the jihadist terror campaign that ravaged Malmo, Sweden’s third largest city? Do you recall the bombings, the suicide-hijackings, and the random assassinations that finally coerced the city to surrender to Islamization? No? Funny, I don’t remember them either. Yet there is no question that Malmo has surrendered. Large enclaves of the city, like similar enclaves throughout Western Europe, have earned the dread label ‘no-go zone.’ They are unsafe for non-Muslims, particularly women who do not conform to Islamist conventions of dress and social interaction. They are especially perilous for police, firefighters, and emergency-medical technicians.” Read more.
Flashback: Sweden: Two Iranian Converts from Islam to Christianity Attacked and Stabbed by Muslims – “Two Iranians who converted from Islam to Christianity were stabbed by masked men in Norway Haugesund last week. The attackers shouted ‘kuffar’ – an Arabic term of abuse against unbelievers – during the attack. The attack occurred on Tuesday evening when the two Christian Iranians were out for a walk in Haugesund. They were attacked suddenly by three masked and knife-armed men, who reportedly shouted ‘kuffar’ as they stabbed the two.” Read more.
Flashback: slamic Militants Calling Themselves ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam’ Threaten to Hunt Down and Execute Christians Who Flee Iran – “Islamic militants with suspected ties to Iranian security forces have been terrorizing evangelical Christians with threats to ‘repent’ or die, it was reported Sunday. Christian Solidarity Worldwide has reported that 11 Iranian Christians who fled Iran in the wake of a government campaign against Christianity have received threats via email to ‘repent’ or face extrajudicial execution, from a group identifying itself as the ‘The Unknown Soldiers of The Hidden Imam.’ The threatening emails that were sent to each individual on Sept. 14 aspired to extend the arm of Iranian Islamic militancy beyond the borders of Iran by implying that, although the recipients have left Iran, they have not escaped the ‘acute eyes of the unknown soldiers.’” Read more.
AP – “COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) – Conservation officials are trying to determine what killed an estimated 14,000 fish in a central Missouri creek.
The Missouri Department of Conservation says the die-off occurred in Flat Branch creek near its confluence with Hinkson Creek in Columbia. The agency says the cause won’t be pinpointed until the Department of Natural Resources tests the stream.
Speculation had focused on runoff from an April 1 fire that destroyed an auto parts store in a Columbia strip mall. But The Columbia Daily Tribune reported Wednesday that the Fire Department tested the water and found it negative for petroleum pollution.” Source – KY3.com.
Massachusetts: Al Qaeda Terrorist From Wealthy Boston Suburb Sentenced to Nearly 18 Years in Prison, Gets Standing Ovation From Family
Here’s another update on the pro Bin Laden “peanut butter and jelly” jihadist. Hope he doesn’t mind crunchy …
Associated Press – “A Massachusetts man convicted of conspiring to help Al-Qaeda was sentenced Thursday to 17 1/2 years in prison after giving an impassioned speech in which he declared his love for Islam and said, ‘This is not terrorism; it’s self-defense.’
Tarek Mehanna, 29, an American who grew up in the wealthy Boston suburb of Sudbury, was found guilty in December of traveling to Yemen to seek training in a terrorist camp with the intention of going on to Iraq to fight U.S. soldiers there.
Prosecutors said that when that plan failed, Mehanna returned to the United States and began translating and disseminating materials online promoting violent jihad.
‘In your eyes I’m a terrorist. I’m the only one standing here in an orange jumpsuit,’ Mehanna said in U.S. District Court in Boston.
He later added: ‘America will change and recognize this trial for what it is.’
Mehanna was sentenced on four terror-related charges and three counts of lying to authorities.
His family and supporters gave him a standing ovation and called out ‘we love you’ as he was led from the courtroom.
During the sentencing hearing, Mehanna gave a sweep of history and compared the suffering experienced by Muslims at the hands of Americans to the oppression inflicted on American colonists by the British.” Read more.
A state trooper and a motorist reported a large object falling out of the sky in Litchfield, Conn. — a green, glowing, whale-sized object that plunged into Litchfield Lake. State authorities said no go; they failed to locate anything mysterious.
The Republican-American of Waterbury reports that a person driving in Litchfield at about 2 a.m. Tuesday reported that an object the size of a whale fell from the sky and crashed into Bantam Lake. Officials say that at about the same time, a state trooper 10 miles away in Warren called dispatchers to report that something fell out of the sky and landed near Bantam or Morris.
Morris fighters made several passes up and down the lake in a boat looking for a possible plane crash, but didn’t find any debris.
Authorities called off the search, leaving the mystery unsolved.
But science may have the answer: According to the National Weather Service, there was a meteor shower that morning, WTNH.com reported.
Perhaps the whale-sized object was simply a meteor?” Source – FOX News.
