Islamic Militants Turn Nigeria Into Christian Killing Field

05/03/2013 1 comment

By Gary Lane, CBN News – “Last year more Christians were killed in Nigeria than any other country. The onslaught of bombings gave Nigeria the sad distinction of being the nation with the highest Christian death toll.

More than 900 Christians reportedly were killed in Nigeria in 2012, all victims of the Boko Haram group and other Islamic militants.

‘They are so radical they don’t even spare [moderate] Muslims. If Muslims are sympathetic to any cause at all…if they are sympathetic to the Christians cause, or the minorities cause, they are also termed as infidels,’ Mark Lipdo, program coordinator for the Stefanos Foundation, said.

In 2013, radicals have killed more than 120 Nigerians, most of them Christians.

Gregory Lar, an international human rights attorney, said, ‘It is happening at this time because it appears there is a new resurgence, a new Islamic awareness in the need to propagate their religion.’

The new wave of violence has caused various groups in Southern Nigeria to take up arms. They are determined to protect Christians.

Attorney Emmanuel Ogebe warns the country may be on the brink of broader conflict.

‘Because of the massive Christian Muslim population in Nigeria, there is no country on Earth that is as rich and as ready for a religious war. All the elements, all of the ingredients are there,’ he said.

Ogebe’s spoke at a recent conference sponsored by the Washington, D.C.-based Jubilee Campaign. Some panelists criticized the U.S. State Department’s reluctance to blame the violence in Nigeria on Islamic extremism.

‘The route they are taking is dangerous. It’s against American interests and it is not positive. It’s not sensible. The ultimate aim of this extremism–it’s not just to wipe out Christians. It will hit back here ultimately,’ Ogebe argued.

For years, Islamic militants limited their attacks on Christians to the 12 northern Nigerian states where Shariah law is in place.

Now, they are pressing into central and southern states where Christians are in the majority.” Read more.

Most Germans See Islam As ‘Different And Threatening’

05/03/2013 1 comment

It looks like more and more Germans are finally beginning to realize that tolerating the very ideology that inspired Hitler and the “Final Solution” is a bad idea after all …

By Soeren Kern, Gatestone Institute – “More than half of all Germans view Islam as a threat to their country and believe it does not belong in the Western world, according to a major new study on religious attitudes in Germany.

The findings confirm the results of dozens of other surveys, and reflect a growing divide between the views of ordinary Germans and those of Europe’s multicultural elites, who, in the quest for ‘diversity,’ have been promoting mass immigration from Muslim countries for decades.

The study, entitled, Religion Monitor 2013: Religiousness and Cohesion in Germany (currently available only in German) was produced by the Bertelsmann Foundation, one of the most influential think tanks and lobbying groups in Europe, and a strong proponent of ‘progressive’ causes such as multiculturalism and global governance.

According to the survey — designed to measure the ‘most important forms and intensity of the religiosity’ of German citizens — the majority of Germans view Islam as ‘foreign, different and threatening.’

More specifically, 51% of Germans believe Islam poses a threat to their way of life. In East Germany that figure rises to 57%, while in West Germany it reaches 49%. (The survey also shows that one in five Germans believe Judaism poses a threat to the German way of life.)

Only 25% of Germans believe that Islam has a positive influence on German society.

Although 85% Germans say that society should be open to all religions, and 67% believe that ‘every religion has a core of truth,’ fully 50% of Germans believe that Islam does not belong to Germany.

The survey also shows that Muslims possess the strongest religious identity in Germany. Some 90% of Muslims believe that religion is somewhat or very important, 40% rate themselves as very religious, and 30% of Muslims visit the mosque on a regular basis. By contrast, only 18% of Protestant Christians attend church on a regular basis.” Read more.

Report: US State Department Hired Al-Qaida-Linked Group To Defend Benghazi Mission

05/03/2013 3 comments

By John Rosenthal, NewsMax – “The Libyan militia group that the State Department hired to defend its embattled diplomatic mission in Benghazi had clear al-Qaida sympathies, and had prominently displayed the al-Qaida flag on a Facebook page for some months before the deadly attack.

That organization, the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, was paid by the U.S. government to provide security at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. But there is no indication the Martyrs Brigade fulfilled its commitment to defend the mission on Sept. 11, when it came under attack.

The assault claimed the lives of four Americans: Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Stevens was the first U.S. ambassador killed in the line of duty since 1979.

Several entries on the militia’s Facebook page openly profess sympathy for Ansar al-Sharia, the hardline Islamist extremist group widely blamed for the deadly attack on the mission. The State Department did not respond to a Newsmax request for an explanation as to why the February 17th Martyrs Brigade was hired to protect the mission.

On April 23, House Republicans released an interim progress report on their investigation into the Benghazi killings. It cited ‘numerous reports’ that ‘the Brigade had extremist connections, and it had been implicated in the kidnapping of American citizens as well as in the threats against U.S. military assets.’

The report also stated that just a few days before Stevens arrived in Benghazi, the Martyrs Brigade informed State Department officials they no longer would provide security as members of the mission, including Stevens, traveled through the city.

From June 2011 to July 2012, Eric Nordstrom, the regional security officer for Libya at the time, documented more than 200 security threats and violent incidents threatening to U.S. personnel in Libya. Some 50 of those incidents occurred in Benghazi.

Yet despite those threats, repeated requests for additional security from the mission went unheeded by the State Department, for reasons that remain unclear.

Perhaps the biggest question is why the State Department would hire a group that openly displayed its admiration for al-Qaida, and ask it to participate in the defense of its diplomatic mission.

The banner, or ‘cover photo’ of one of the group’s Facebook pages, shows an Islamic fighter, or mujahid, with a portable rocket launcher resting on his shoulder.” Read more.

Palestinian Security Forces Spokesman Calls Terror Attack Killing 37 Israelis An ‘Honorable’ Event

Qur’an 9:112, “The [Muslim] Believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.”

Spokesman of PA Security Forces on Palestine Live TV, 3/25/2013: “All the honorable [events] take place in March, starting with the Al-Karameh Day through Mother’s Day, Dalal Mughrabi’s day and ending with Abu Jihad Khalil Al-Wazir [Founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization’s military wing and planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks, including the most lethal in Israel history, the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children]. All these, brave brothers in the Palestinian Security Forces, this is their day, which we celebrate today.” Watch video below.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas: Palestinians Who Kill Jews Cannot Be Punished – “Because to punish Palestinians for killing Jews would, in their mind, be punishing someone simply for following the commands of their ‘prophet’ Mohammed. He was, after all, a ‘perfect example for mankind‘ to follow whose teachings are ‘the fire with which’ they ‘harvest the skulls of the Jews.’ It is therefore an act of worship to kill Jews, and an act that draws them closer to ‘Allah’ is an act that must be revered, not punished …” Read more.

Palestinian TV Glorifies The ‘Prominent Operations’ Of Terrorist That Resulted In The Slaughter Of Dozens Of Jews

Hadith, Bukhari 52:177, “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. ‘O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.'”

PA TV (Fatah), 4/16/2013: “The Eilabun tunnel operation in 1965 (bombing of Israel’s National Water Carrier), the shelling of the northern settlements (i.e., northern Israel) in 1981, in between the Savoy Hotel operation in Tel Aviv in 1975 (11 killed), the blowing up of a truck bomb that same year (15 killed in Jerusalem), and the birth of Dalal’s Republic in 1978 on the Haifa-Tel Aviv road (37 killed in a bus hijacking) – these are the prominent operations planned and supervised by Abu Jihad, the most noble of men.”

Fighting Terror With Willful Blindness

05/03/2013 Leave a comment

eric-holder-articleBy Terry Heinrichs, American Thinker – “The so-called ‘Global War on Terror’ is as far removed from previous wars we’ve fought as football is from hide-and-seek. In the 20th century, wars were generally fought by countries with clearly defined uniformed combatants bearing military insignia, carrying arms openly, and targeting military personnel rather than civilians. Where civilians were casualties, they were mainly collateral rather than targeted damage.  By contrast, our war with Islamic jihadists is not against any country but against religiously inspired zealots, who wear no uniforms, display no insignias, conceal their armaments, and who hide among, as well as target, civilians.

True, spies, saboteurs, and fifth columnists operated in previous wars outside regular defined battlefields and, thus, also violated the laws of war, but, by contrast, their activities did comparatively little damage. Today, however, terrorist attacks are the preferred method of jihadist warfare, and, as a result, gathering information necessary to prevent them is more important than it was for any previous war. Indeed, acquiring the necessary information is even more important now than in 2001 because Obama has adopted a kill first drone strategy rather than a capture and interrogate policy.

That terrorists are active today on the home front means it is especially necessary to find out who they are, where they are, how many there are, who or what they are targeting, as well as how, where, and when they plan to strike. Moreover, given the destructiveness of weapons today (biological, chemical, and radiological), along with their relative ease of concealment and the difficulties of tracing responsibility, the task for us is close to herculean.

Gagging the Terrorist

Hence, the extraordinary, almost bizarre, nature of the administration’s handling of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev given that it is clear he has information we need to know. Indeed, he was apparently talking to the FBI in the hospital for 16 hours before a magistrate judge, likely acting on orders from higher-ups, went out of her way to Mirandize him, something judges are not constitutionally empowered to do. As a result, Tsarnaev apparently shut up altogether. He is now being held as an ordinary domestic criminal free to talk when he, not we, want, when he could have been held as an enemy combatant and interrogated for at least 30 days, had Obama chosen, without ever getting a glimpse of a lawyer.

However, given the administration’s choice, and given that they decided to try him as they might an ordinary shoplifter, was it necessary to Mirandize him to protect his constitutional right not to incriminate himself? Read more…
