Jordanian Islamist Praises Boston Bombing, Is ‘Happy To See The Horror In America’

04/15/2013 1 comment

It was only a matter of time. And these demented sentiments are undoubtedly being echoed by Islamists all across the Muslim world today …

By JAMAL HALABY, Huffington Post – “The head of an extremist Jordanian Muslim Salafi group said early Tuesday that he was ‘happy to see the horror in America’ after the explosions in Boston.

‘American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,’ said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaida-linked plot to attack U.S. and other Western diplomatic missions in Jordan in 2003.

‘Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there,’ he said early Tuesday.

Al-Chalabi served seven years in prison for his part in the foiled attack. His group is outlawed in Jordan.

A Mideast counterterrorism official based in Jordan said the blasts ‘carry the hallmark of an organized terrorist group, like al-Qaida.’ He did not give actual evidence linking al-Qaida to the bombing.

‘From the little information available, one can say it was a well-coordinated, well-targeted and near-simultaneous attack,’ he said. ‘Luckily, the amount of explosives used is small, judging from the casualty figure and explosion area.’

A Jordanian security official said security was beefed up around the U.S. Embassy in Amman after the bombing in Boston.

‘As the unfortunate news unfolded, we immediately stationed more police patrols around the embassy,’ he said. He declined to disclose any details, citing the sensitive nature of the information.

Both officials insisted on anonymity, as they were not authorized to brief reporters on security matters.” Source – Huffington Post.

Flashback: Obama Administration: The War On Terror Is ‘Over’ – “… a senior State Department official has announced, ‘The war on terror is over.’ ‘Now that we have killed most of al Qaida … people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.’ The article itself describes the Obama administration’s new vision of foreign policy, which admits no enemies. Everyone, in this view, is a friend. Islamism, says the Obama administration, is just fine, so long as it does not openly support terrorism. This, of course, is utter foolishness. Islamism is a religious ideological movement that brooks no real alternatives – so while the State Department proclaims ‘a legitimate Islamism,’ it fails to acknowledge that Islamism, ‘legitimate’ or not, is deeply intolerant of any other modes of expression. Not only that, but Islamism works hand-in-glove with terror groups around the world.” Read more.

‘Stay Home … Don’t Congregate In Large Crowds’: Third Explosion Confirmed At JFK Library, President To Address Nation Tonight

04/15/2013 3 comments

No absolute confirmation that this incident is related to the Boston Marathon explosions, but the timing is highly suspicious …

By Dave Wedge and Joe Dwinell, The Boston Herald – “A third explosion occurred just after 3 this afternoon at John F. Kennedy library in what is now being called another confirmed attack.

Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said ‘a third incident — explosion — was at the JFK Library’ on Columbia Point.

‘This is very much an ongoing event,’ Davis said. ‘Stay home … don’t congregate in large crowds.’

Shortly around 3 p.m. alarms went off at the library and black smoke poured from the historic building, filling the sky over the harbor.

The fire broke out as emergency crews were responding to two deadly explosions at the Marathon finish line.

JFK library director Tom Putnam was aware of the damage to the building, but said no injuries were reported.

Boston ladder trucks rushed to the scene and firefighters could be seen on the roof.

A large group gathered at the entrance to the library which is completely torched and covered in black soot.

John Boutin of Raynham was walking along the Harborwalk when he saw the smoke.

‘All of a sudden I heard the alarms go off and looked up and saw thick black smoke. It was very thick and it was very black.'” Source – The Boston Herald.

President to address nation after Boston explosions – “President Obama scheduled a press conference to address the nation after a pair of explosions killed two and injured dozens at the Boston Marathon today. The president is scheduled to speak at 5:10 Central Time, according to the White House. Obama was briefed on Monday’s explosions by FBI Director Robert Mueller and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. The White House said the president also spoke with Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino and pledged to provide whatever federal support was needed in responding to the incident.” Read more.

Apparently the Boston Marathon headquarters have been locked down. The explosion was powerful enough to be felt blocks away. Reports are indicating that a number of victims have lost limbs and there have been multiple deaths. The suspect — a Muslim man from Saudi Arabia — is being held under guard at a local Boston hospital with shrapnel wounds.   More details to come …

Update: Video of one of the explosions has been posted

Update: One reporter on Fox 25 in Boston says she believes a third explosion was heard in the distance (this may have been the controlled explosion of a possible third bomb reported by CBS). NY Post is reporting at least 12 have been killed after initial two explosions …

Update: Fortunately, the official death count remains at 3, however over 260 have been wounded …

Reuters – “Two explosions struck the Boston Marathon as runners crossed the finish line on Monday, witnesses said, injuring an unknown number of people on what is ordinarily a festive day in the city.

Police reported at least one explosion and witnesses said there were two, which hit as spectators were cheering on runners finishing the race.

Reporters in the media center heard two blasts.

‘There was an explosion. Police, fire and EMS (emergency medical services) are on the scene, we have no indication of how many people are injured,’ a spokeswoman for the Boston Police Department said.

Mike Mitchell of Vancouver, Canada, a runner who had finished the race, said he was looking back at the finish line and saw a ‘massive explosion.’

Smoke rose 50 feet in the air, Mitchell said. People began running and screaming after hearing the noise, Mitchell said.

‘Everybody freaked out,’ Mitchell said.

Television images showed ambulances, fire trucks and dozens of police vehicles near the finish line.

Hundreds of thousands of spectators typically line the 26.2 mile race course, with the heaviest crowds near the finish line.” Read more.

Germany: Christian Cross Removed From German Court To Appease Muslims

Before and After

Before and After

Islam teaches that the non-Muslim world belongs to the “house of war” (Dar al-harb), thus it’s only befitting to the Islamist (and the Islamist-enabling) mind that we as second-class citizens of earth submit to the will of the Ummah, whether on or off the battlefield …

By Cheradenine Zakalwe, Islam verses Europe – “I’ve written before about the trial of the National Socialist Underground group in Germany. There it seems to be assuming the same significance as the Stephen Lawrence trial in Britain, in other words a case that the multicult elite seizes on and instrumentalises to advance its political agenda. And the Turkish government is doing the same.

The trial of the one surviving member of the group is due to start soon in Munich. Some recent drama there has focused on the question of whether Turkish journalists should be admitted to the proceedings. Journalist slots for attendance at the trial were allocated as they normally are in Germany, on a first come/first served basis. This wasn’t good enough for the Turks, none of whom applied in time. The Turkish government has created a diplomatic fuss about this and the dhimmi German elites, as usual, have cravenly appeased them. After a case brought by a Turkish magazine, the German Supreme Court ordered Munich’s High Court to grant a reasonable number of places to representatives of foreign media.

But the appeasement hasn’t stopped there. More than a million euros was spent preparing the court for the trial. Note one of the very interesting changes made. The crucifix has been removed from the court room!

Shockingly, German newspapers have also been publishing accounts of the trial in Turkish!” Read more.

India: Muslim Mob Attacks Christians For Spreading The Gospel, ‘The Anti-Christian Intolerance … Is Reaching Alarming Proportions’

04/15/2013 1 comment

By Nirmala Carvalho, AsiaNews – “‘The anti-Christian intolerance in Jammu and Kashmir is reaching alarming proportions’ is the complaint of Sajan George, president of the Global Council of Indian Christians (GCIC), after the arrest of two Christians in Srinagar, the capital of Indian state, on false charges of forced conversions. The arrest took place on April 10 last, after a Muslim mob attacked two men, five women and two children, all of British origin.

The foreigners had been living for about four years Shivpora, a district of Srinagar. According to local residents one of them, James Thomas, was engaged in conversion activities. So, two days ago a large group of people attacked the Christians, threw stones at their vehicles and tried to destroy their house. The intervention of the police prevented the demolition and the wounding of those present, but officials arrested James and Alora Milli to clarify the charges against them.

The police have impounded the building and evacuated the foreigners. The local imam told police that he had repeatedly asked the foreigners not to convert Muslims, but to no avail. ‘Now – he added – they can no longer access the area. And even if they try to convert anyone, I will prevent it at all costs.’

‘The false and defamatory accusations of the Imam – says Sajan George – and the complicity of the police in arresting these Christians are a serious threat to religious freedom, a right guaranteed by the Constitution of India.’

Jammu and Kashmir is the only Muslim-majority state of India where religious intolerance frequently occurs. This past January, a group of foreign tourists risked being lynched after the publication of some posts on Facebook. An exemplary case dates back to 2011, when the Rev. Chander Mani Khanna, pastor of All Saints Anglican Church, was arrested for having baptized seven Muslims and then indicted by an Islamic court (which has no legal authority in the State or in India, ed) for proselytism and forced conversions.” Source – Asia News.
