United States: New Army Manual Orders Soldiers Not To Criticize Taliban … Or Pedophilia

12/12/2012 3 comments

Once again we witness a puerile, ineffectual foreign policy entirely modeled after the famous words of the late Rodney King. Don’t criticize Islamic terrorists. Or the lack of women’s rights. Or pedophilia. Don’t urinate or spit in the direction of Mecca. And whatever you do, please be sure to remove any and all crosses. Act like a Muslim so we can just all get along and be friends. Otherwise you might encourage (yet another) blood-thirsty Islamist death seeker to (yet again) kill as many of us as possible …

Proverbs 22:24-25, “Make no friendship with a man given to anger, nor go with a wrathful man, lest you learn his ways and entangle yourself in a snare.”

Don't Criticize The Taliban

Don’t Criticize The Taliban

Judicial Watch – “Here is a strong indicator that the Obama Administration’s crusade to appease Islam has gone too far; a  new U.S. military handbook for troops deployed to the Middle East orders soldiers not to make derogatory comments about the Taliban or criticize pedophilia, among other outrageous things.

It gets better; the new manual, which is around 75 pages, suggests that Western ignorance of Afghan culture— not Taliban infiltration—is responsible for the increase in deadly attacks by Afghan soldiers against the coalition forces.

The soon-to-be-released Army handbook is still being drafted, but a mainstream newspaper got a sneak preview and published an article that should infuriate the American taxpayers funding the never-ending war on terror. The manual is being created because someone with authority bought the theory that cultural insensitivity is driving insider attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

More than three dozen insider attacks have killed 63 members of the U.S.-led coalition this year, according to the article, and some blame “American cultural ignorance.” The bottom line is that troops may experience social-cultural shock and/or discomfort when interacting with Afghan security forces, the new military handbook says. ‘Better situational awareness/understanding of Afghan culture will help better prepare [troops] to more effectively partner and to avoid cultural conflict that can lead toward green-on-blue violence.’

The draft leaked to the newspaper offers a list of ‘taboo conversation topics’ that soldiers should avoid, including ‘making derogatory comments about the Taliban,’ ‘advocating women’s rights,’ ‘any criticism of pedophilia,’ ‘directing any criticism towards Afghans,’ ‘mentioning homosexuality and homosexual conduct’ or ‘anything related to Islam.’

UK: Christian Mother Murdered By Muslim Ex-Boyfriend For Wanting To Raise Daughter As A Christian

2 Corinthians 6:14, “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?”

And those who love darkness will always seek to destroy the light that exposes their evil …

By Steve Nolan, Mail Online – “A Muslim man was jailed for life today for stabbing his devout Christian ex-girlfriend 13 times after they split following bitter rows about him wanting their young daughter to convert to Islam.

Esther Arogundade, 32, was attacked by kitchen porter Shola Adebiyi in her own home after she began a relationship with another man.

Adebiyi also drank oven cleaner in an attempt to kill himself and phoned Esther’s new lover to say he would never see her again before confessing to the killing to a friend.

Police broke into the mother-of-two’s home in Salford, Greater Manchester, and found KFC worker Esther lying dead on the kitchen floor with multiple stab wounds to her back and front.

Adebiyi was jailed at Manchester Crown Court for a minimum of 20-and-a-half years after admitting killing her.

The court heard how Esther began dating Adebiyi in 2007 and that they later had a daughter now aged two but split up last year after a series of rows.

Rob Hall prosecuting said: ‘These arguments were ignited by differences of opinion over the religion of their daughter – the defendant wanted her to convert from Christian to Islam, but Esther was a church goer.” Read more.

By Neil Connor, AFP – “A court in China’s restive Muslim-majority region of Xinjiang sentenced three men to death on Tuesday after they were found guilty of trying to hijack an aircraft and detonate explosives, state media said.

The men, along with a fourth who received a life prison term, were among a group of six that tried to seize the aircraft after it had taken off from Hotan in the northwestern region and were thwarted by passengers and crew, the official Xinhua news agency said, citing a court statement.

The other two gang members died in the struggle, which also resulted in injuries to 24 crew members and passengers, the statement said.

They were confronted after they tried to ‘detonate explosive devices’, the statement from the Intermediate People’s Court in Hotan Prefecture said, adding that ‘converted metal crutches and explosives’ were used in the hijacking.

The men attempted to commandeer the Tianjin Airlines flight 1,400km away from its destination, the regional capital city of Urumqi.

They were influenced by religious extremists and ‘loudly shouted religious extremist cries’ on board the aircraft, the Xinhua report said, citing court testimonies.

‘They decided to blow up the aircraft and die along with all the other passengers,’ it added.

Ringleaders Musa Yvsup and Arxidikali Yimin, along with Eyumer Yimin, who played a major part in the attempted hijack, were sentenced to death.” Read more.

By Pete Williams, NBC News – “FBI agents have arrested two Alabama men accused of plotting to wage violent jihad in Africa.

Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair, 25, and Randy Wilson, also known as Rasheed Wilson, 25, both U.S.citizens living in Mobile, were arrested Tuesday on terrorism charges. Prosecutors say they planned to travel to Mauritania, in West Africa, intending to prepare to engage in jihad.

Wilson was arrested Tuesday morning in at the Atlanta airport while preparing to begin a journey to Morocco, investigators say. Abukhdair was arrested in Augusta, Ga., at a bus terminal, also beginning a trip to Morocco.

Investigators say the men met online two years ago when Wilson was living in Mobile and Abukhdair was living in Egypt. Last year, prosecutors say, the men were introduced to someone who turned out to be an undercover FBI operative. Court documents say they explained that they had already formulated a plan to wage jihad overseas.” Read more.

Los Angeles Times – “A 25-year-old Somali woman living in San Diego was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to sending money to a suspected terrorist group in her native country.

Nima Yusuf admitted in San Diego federal court that she sent $1,450 to men in Somalia who were fighting on behalf of al-Shabaab, considered a terrorist group by the U.S. government. She also admitted trying to recruit a local man to go to Somalia to fight for al-Shabaab.

According to FBI wiretaps, Yusuf was pleased when told in a phone call by another Somali that al-Shabaab had killed Burundian peacekeeping troops. She allegedly responded: ‘Oh my God! God is great! Wonderful! I swear to God, you told me something to be happy about.’

In another conversation, Yusuf laughingly said she hoped another terrorist strike like the Sept. 11 attack occurs in America: ‘Oh! It will be happening again. Trust me, more this time it will be double, triple their deaths.’

Yusuf has pleaded guilty to conspiring with four other Somali nationals in Minnesota to provide money and other support to al-Shabaab, which is attempting to overthrow the transitional government in Somalia and oust African Union troops.

‘This is a serious crime against our country and our citizenry,’ said Daphne Hearn, FBI special agent in charge of the San Diego office.” Source – Los Angeles Times.

Illinois: Chicago Muslim Gets 10 Years In Overseas Terrorism Plot

By Ellen Jean Hirst, Chicago Tribune – “A Chicago man was sentenced today to nearly 10 years in prison for planning to travel to Somalia in 2010 to wage jihad for a terrorist group connected to al-Qaida.

Shaker Masri, 29, a native U.S. citizen of Syrian descent, pleaded guilty in July to attempting to provide material support to the Somali group al-Shabaab, which is designated by the U.S. government as a terrorist organization.

U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman considered Masri’s younger age, mental health and stress from his mother’s sudden death in accepting the sentence worked out between prosecutors and his lawyers – 9 years and 10 months in prison.

However, she also ordered that he be under supervised release for 20 years following his release from prison.

Masri’s lead attorney, Thomas Anthony Durkin, had opposed the unusually lengthy supervised release, noting his client would be an old man by the time he was no longer under court supervision.

‘With all due respect, 50 years old is not old,’ Johnson Coleman said. ‘You’ve still got a lot of time left.

But Joshua Dratel, another Masri attorney, pointed out that Masri would be nearly 60 by the time he was free of the court restrictions.

‘Still not old,’ the judge said.” Read more.

A Sign Of The Times: Christianity Is Falling Away In Britain As Islam Surges And Agnosticism Spreads

12/12/2012 Leave a comment

1 Timothy 4:1, “But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons …”

By Damian Thompson, The Telegraph – “Poor Rowan Williams: wrong to the end. Christianity is not ‘fading away’ in Britain, he says. Yes it is, as the census figures clearly illustrate.

Since the last census in 2001, the number of Britons identifying themselves, however loosely, as Christians is down 13 percentage points to 59 per cent.

The number of respondents who say they have no religious faith is up 10 points to 25 per cent. Meanwhile, staggeringly, the Muslim population has grown from 1.55 million to 2.7 million, an increase of 1.15 million from 2001 to 2011.

The surge in Islamic belief is entirely a consequence of immigration. The spread of agnosticism and atheism is (though I haven’t yet seen the breakdown by age) largely generational.

It cannot be said too often: the default position of people born since 1980 is agnosticism or atheism. Meanwhile, as a commenter points out below, net migration from the UK consists largely of people who would probably have ticked the Christian or C of E box. That hadn’t occurred to me, but it’s an important factor.

A quick thought: these figures confirm that, saddled with shrinking congregations and (so far) dreadful leadership from Archbishops Williams and Nichols, the Churches haven’t a hope in hell of stopping gay marriage.” Source – The Telegraph.

The Middle East is full of churches turned into Islamic sites, like the Umayyad in Damascus, the Ibn Tulun in Cairo and the cathedral of St. Sophia in Instanbul… This is now a reality.

In many cases, local authorities close their eyes to this offense, and in some cases the police are there to ensure the safety of those who block the streets.

Russia: Four Muslim Terrorists Jailed Over Plot To Bomb High-Speed Train

Reuters – “A Russian court jailed four alleged Islamist militants on Monday for plotting to bomb a high-speed train between Moscow and St Petersburg last year.

Moscow City Court handed prison terms of 15 to 18 years to Islam Khamzhuyev, Fail Nevlyutov, Mansur Umayev and Mansur Edilbiyev, natives of Russia’s troubled North Caucasus region.

Prosecutors said they had tried to attack the Sapsan train in summer 2011, state news agency Itar-tass reported. A lawyer for the accused said the defense would appeal.

The Kremlin is struggling to contain an Islamist insurgency in its mostly Muslim North Caucasus that continues in the wake of two wars between Moscow’s security forces and Chechen separatists in the region.

Insurgents seeking to establish an Islamic state claimed responsibility for an attack that killed 27 people on a Moscow-St Petersburg train in 2009, a suicide bombing that killed 37 at Moscow’s busiest airport in 2011 and bombings on the Moscow metro that killed 40 in 2010.

Earlier this year, Russia jailed 10 people – four of them for life – for the 2009 bombing on the Moscow-St Petersburg line.” Source – Yahoo! News.

Canada To Syrian Rebels: Until You Renounce Islamic Extremism And Embrace Minorities, We Will Never Recognize You

12/12/2012 5 comments

Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper could teach a thing or two to Barack Obama. But then again, only the teachable will ever learn …

By Kathryn Blaze Carlson and Stewart Bell, National Post – “Canada told the Syrian opposition Tuesday it must reject extremism and embrace minorities before Ottawa will recognize its legitimacy as a successor to President Bashar Al-Assad, according to a federal official.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird explained Canada’s preconditions for official recognition at a meeting with representatives of the opposition Syrian National Coalition in Morocco on Tuesday, the official said.

‘He outlined the importance of rejecting extremism, the inclusion of minorities, and the importance of the role of women in a post-Assad era,’ said the official, who did not want to be named.

On Wednesday, Mr. Baird will publicly spell out those preconditions during an address before the Friends of the Syrian People meeting — a gathering of more than 100 countries in Morocco’s Marrakesh working to bolster legitimate opposition to the Assad regime.

While France, Britain, Turkey and the Gulf Cooperation Council have already recognized the newly formed Syrian National Coalition, and President Barack Obama confirmed Tuesday the U.S. would do the same, Mr. Baird was taking a more cautious approach.

The international gathering comes as Western nations struggle to co-operate with the Syrian resistance while at the same time sideline al-Qaeda-aligned extremists who have been trying to hijack the anti-Assad opposition.” Read more.
