A Kingdom Divided: World’s Most Influential Sunni Cleric Calls For Global Jihad Against Non-Sunni Muslims In Syria

06/02/2013 3 comments

Mark 13:8a, “For nation [ethnos] will rise against nation [ethnos], and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles …”

By Richard Spencer, The Telegraph – “Yusef al-Qaradawi, who is based in Qatar and has been a leading voice supporting the Arab Spring, warned that Iranian Shia were trying to ‘eat’ Sunni Muslims, who are a majority in the Muslim world.

He referred to Alawites, the followers of the Muslim sect to which President Bashar al-Assad of Syria belongs, as being ‘worse infidels than Christians or Jews’. He also used the deliberately contemptuous term ‘Nusayris’ when talking about them.

He was particularly critical of the roles played by Iran, which is largely Shia, and the Lebanon Shia militia Hizbollah whose name translates as Party of God but which he called ‘Party of Satan’, in supporting the Assad regime.

‘There is no common ground between the two sides because the Iranians, especially conservatives, want to eat the Sunni people,’ he said.

The Syrian opposition is dominated, like Syria itself, by Sunni Muslims, but also includes a number of Christians, Alawites and other minorities.

However, Alawite militias loyal to the Assads have been responsible for sectarian attacks on Sunni villages, while there are also increasing reports of sectarian attacks by militant Sunni jihadists, many of whom regard the Shia and Alawites as heretics.

In recent days, a number of Shia shrines have been attacked and desecrated in rebel-held territory, including the tombs of Ammar ibn Yasir in Raqqa and of Hujr bin Uday al-Kindi near Damascus.

Alawite leaders have openly called for Sunni areas to be ‘cleansed’ …

He said Sunni Muslims around the world should not wait for the West to help the rebel cause against the ‘Nusayris’, the Iranians and ‘the party of God’ [Hezbollah]. ‘They are the party of Satan, the party of the tyrant,’ he said. ‘The party of God does not kill [Sunni] Muslims, and these people draw close to God by killing [Sunni] Muslims.'” Read more.

Eritrea: Christian Persecution Is Now ‘At Its Highest Level Ever And Getting Worse’

06/02/2013 2 comments

By Timothy Fowler, EN – “A Christian leader in Eritrea says that religious persecution in the northeast African country ‘is at its highest level ever and getting worse,’ World Watch Monitor (WWM), the news outlet of Open Doors, a Christian charity reports.

WWM reports the stories of Christians around the world under pressure for their faith.

It indicated that the leader’s name would not be used because of security reasons.

The total number of Christians arrested in Eritrea this year has risen to 191 after the detention of 37 students from the College of Arts and Sciences Adi Kihe and five men from the Church of the Living God in Asmara, according to WWM.

Up to 3,000 Christians are imprisoned because of their faith in Eritrea.

Open Doors ranks the country 10th on its World Watch List and gives it the designation of ‘extreme persecution’ on its scale.

Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) say many prisoners are held in metal shipping containers without ventilation or toilet facilities.

Eritrea allowed religious freedom until 2002, when the government announced it would only recognize religious groups: Sunni Islam, the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church of Eritrea, and the Lutheran-affiliated Evangelical Church of Eritrea, said VOM.

Since then, it says the Eritrean government has jailed, tortured and jailed numerous Eritreans for political and religious reasons.

As a result, Eritrea has been called ‘the North Korea of Africa’.” Read more.

For peaceful purposes …

By STEVE NOLAN, Mail Online – “A white Muslim convert threatened to kill Prince Harry just a day after the shocking murder of a soldier in Woolwich.

Ashraf Islam, 30, formerly known as Mark Townley, confessed to police that he wanted to kill the third in line to the throne, who has served in high profile tours of Afghanistan.

Islam walked into a police station in Hounslow on May 23 and told detectives that he wanted to murder the prince hours after soldier Lee Rigby, 25, was killed.

He was charged under Section 16 of the Offences against the Person Act, which carries a possible jail term of up to 10 years, following an investigation by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter terrorism Command unit.

According to the Daily Star detectives found a laptop belonging to Islam which showed internet searches for ‘guns’, ‘vans’ and ‘kidnapping’.

He is also said to have visited terrorist websites.

Islam, who is believed to have become a Muslim during a recent spell in prison, is currently behind bars after pleading guilty to the offence at Uxbridge Magistrates Court last Saturday.” Read more.

Flashback: British Rapists and Pedophiles Converting To Islam In Prison – “Welcome to Whitemoor Prison where the inmates are in charge, the guards are terrorized and paedophiles and rapists are flocking to Islam. ‘Whitemoor no longer operated  with Vulnerable Prisoner  (VP) Units, so sex offenders were dispersed around the main  wings.  Being admitted to the Muslim community as the most influential religious group in the prison granted them the certainty of being backed up in precarious situations by a large number of ‘brothers’’ Finally there is a group in prison that welcomes rapists and paedophiles. By no coincidence, it’s a religion whose prophet was both a rapist and a paedophile.” Read more.

Al Qaeda Magazine Praises Boston And London Attacks, Urges More Terror Against Those Who Do Not Worship Allah

06/02/2013 1 comment

For peaceful purposes …

Revelation 13:12a, 15b, “It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast … and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

By Mike Brunker, NBC News – “A new issue of the al Qaeda-published propaganda magazine Inspire crows about recent terrorist attacks in Boston and the U.K. and urges young Muslims to carry out similar ‘lone wolf’ operations against the West.

An English-language version of the spring 2013 issue of the online publication, obtained Thursday by NBC News, contains multiple articles praising alleged Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and one on last week’s gruesome knife slaying of a British soldier in London.

‘When one looks at the terrific Boston Marathon operation and its aftermath, including the accusation of the two brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, he understands how a single lone jihad operation can force America to stand on one foot and live in a terrified state, full of fear and rare restlessness,’ reads one article under the byline Abu Abdillah Almoravid.

Unlike the last edition of the publication in March, which contained bomb-building recipes – including one using a pressure cooker, similar to the devices deployed near the marathon finish line – and other suggested methods for inflicting small-scale terrorism, the new 39-page issue has numerous pieces aimed at the American audience.

A ‘Letter from the Editor’ warns, ‘Americans, you should understand this simple equation: as you kill you will be killed. The war is yet to cease, it has barely started. Yesterday it was Baghdad, today it is Boston. The question of ‘who and why’ should be kept aside, You should be asking, ‘Where is next?”” Read more.

Flashback: ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ – Al-Qaeda Calls on US Muslims to Buy Guns and Start Killing Americans – “If an event were to occur in the world that would be eschatologically pivotal for Muslims this would be sure to awaken any radical elements within the Muslim population, regardless of where they live, and even radicalize some of those who were previously considered ‘moderate’… If we are complacent into believing that any such scenario could never happen or is highly unlikely, we don’t need to look far before we come face to face with the sobering reality that Islamic terrorist cells are, today, already forming within our own borders.” Read more.

Flashback: Study: Hundreds Of Thousands Of Muslim Americans Believe Anyone Insulting Mohammed Should Face The Death Penalty – “Nearly half of 600 Muslim-American citizens polled who plan to vote in the 2012 presidential election believe parodies of Muhammad should be prosecuted criminally in the U.S., and one in eight say the offense is so serious violators should face the death penalty… The poll also found 40 percent of Muslims in America believe they should not be judged by U.S. law and the Constitution, but by Shariah standards.” Read more.
