A Rider Called Death: Muslims Detonate Powerful Car Bomb In Busy Pakistani Market, Dozens Killed

09/29/2013 4 comments

For peaceful purposes. There was “no immediate claim of responsibility”, but does there really need to be? …

CBC News – “A car bomb exploded on a crowded street in northwestern Pakistan Sunday, killing 37 people in the third blast to hit the troubled city of Peshawar in a week, officials said.

The latest explosion in Peshawar appeared to have been a bomb planted in a parked car and detonated by remote control, said police officer Zahid Khan. It went off in a crowded market, which is the city’s oldest bazaar near a mosque and a police station, officials said.

The blast damaged the mosque and nearby shops and caused many vehicles to go up in flames, said police officer Nawaz Khan.

The city’s top government official, Sahibzada Anees, said 37 had died while 75 were under treatment at the city’s Lady Reading Hospital.

Such attacks in Peshawar, which is the provincial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, have claimed over 130 lives since last Sunday when two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a crowd of worshippers at a church, killing 85 people.

Then on Friday 19 people died when a bomb planted on a bus carrying government employees home for the weekend exploded in the Peshawar outskirts.

The bomb that went off Sunday was some 300 meters (yards) from the All Saints Church, which was the scene of last Sunday’s carnage.

A book shop owner, Nazar Ali, had just opened his shop when the bomb went off.

‘It was a huge blast that was followed by fire in vehicles. Thick black smoke covered the air and splinters spread all over. I saw people lying dead and bleeding all over,’ he said.

Many of the old buildings used in the historic Qissa Khawani market are constructed from wood which easily caught on fire when the bomb went off, said senior police officer Shafqat Malik.

Another man was shopping for breakfast when the bomb exploded.

‘Suddenly there was a huge bang and I fell on the ground,’ said Adnan Hussain, speaking from the hospital. ‘My cousin Rizwan is dead and the other is critical.’

One man at the hospital said that 13 members of a single family were among the dead. Mohammad Alam said that they had come to Peshawar from a nearby village to invite him to their son’s marriage. He said they were in a van near the station when the bomb exploded.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. The Sunni militant group Jundullah claimed responsibility for the church attack, saying it targeted Christians to avenge the deaths of Muslims killed by U.S. drone strikes.” Read more.

By Michael Snyder, The Truth Wins – “You are about to read some of the most shocking quotes that Barack Obama has ever uttered in public.  A few of these have been widely circulated, but most of them are very obscure.  Even though he claims to be a Christian, throughout his political career Obama has repeatedly attacked traditional Biblical Christianity and he has a very long history of anti-Christian actions.  In public speeches he has repeatedly cast doubt on the Bible, he has repeatedly stated that he does not believe that Jesus is necessary for salvation, and he has consistently said that he believes that all ‘people of faith’ believe in the same God.  At the same time, Obama has always referred to Muhammed as ‘the Prophet’, he has always expressed great love and respect for Islam, and he has even removed all references to Islam from terror training materials used by federal government agencies.  So what in the world does ‘the leader of the free world’ actually believe?  Read the quotes below and decide for yourself…

Separating The ‘Kafirs’ From The Muslims

09/29/2013 1 comment

Muslims today separate the “kuffar” from themselves and curse them with a sentence of death. But a Day is coming when the measure that they have used will be measured to them, and a separation of a much different nature will take place between all those who have received eternal life through faith in Christ and Him crucified, and all those condemned to the Second Death for rejecting Him. My plea to any Muslim who may be reading: Repent now and choose this day whom you will serve. Tomorrow may be too late

Matthew 25:31-34, 41, “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations [ethnos – ethnic groups, peoples, heathens, Gentiles] will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world … Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels …”

By Bill Warner, American Thinker – “When the al Shabaab jihadi group from Somalia attacked the mall in Kenya, they gathered the crowd together and asked who were Muslims and let them go.  According to the media, they then started killing the non-Muslims who were left.  But ‘non-Muslims’ is not the word what the terrorists would have used.  No, they would have called them Kafirs.  (Actually, they would have called them the Arabic plural of kafirkuffar.  ‘Kafirs’ is the standard English plural form.)

Why did members of al Shabaab do this?  Why did they ask the Muslims to leave and keep the Kafirs and start killing them?  Let’s start with the word ‘terrorists.’  Members of al Shabaab are not terrorists; they are jihadists, or mujahedeen.  That is what they call themselves.

So what difference does it make which words we use?  It makes all the difference in the world.  You cannot think precisely with imprecise words, and a Kafir is much more than non-Muslim.

The word ‘non-Muslim’ does not imply anything, except not being a believer in Islam.

Kafir, on the other hand, has enormous implications.  Kafir is the actual word that the Koran uses for a non-Muslim.  Indeed, one of the many remarkable things about the Koran is that over half of its text is devoted to the Kafir.  Think about that: most of the Koran is not about how to be a Muslim, but about the Kafir.  Every single verse about the Kafir is not just bad, but terrible.  Allah hates Kafirs and plots and schemes against them.  The cruelest punishments await the Kafir in hell, but who cares about that?  The real problem is what is promised to the Kafir in this life — torture, hatred, death, ridicule, rape, enslavement, political domination, and deception.

It is the same with ‘mujahedeen’ or ‘jihadist’ as opposed to ‘militant’ or ‘terrorist.’  The words ‘militant’ and ‘terrorist’ do not tell anything about the motivation of the militant or terrorist — only that he uses violence.

Notice that the words ‘non-Muslim’ and ‘terrorist’ are not related to each other; they stand alone.  There is no implication of one by the other.  But that is not true about ‘Kafir’ and ‘jihad.’  Jihad is carried out only against Kafirs.  Jihad implies Kafir, and vice versa.

Jihad and Kafir are part of a system of Islamic politics.  Mohammed preached the religion of Islam for 13 years and garnered 150 followers.  When he turned to politics and jihad, he died ruler of all of Arabia, and every Arab was a Muslim.  The religion of Islam was a failure, and Islam triumphed by the use of politics and jihad — war against the Kafir.

Islamic doctrine is found in the Koran, Sunna (Mohammed), and sharia law and divides all of humanity into Muslim and Kafir.  There is no middle ground.  Unfortunately, both Christian and Jewish leaders have bought into the fiction that Read more…

Nigeria: Dozens Of Students Massacred For The Cause Of ‘Allah’ While They Slept In College Dorm

They’ve already declared their intent and their intended targets

Qur’an Sura 9:29, “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of [Islam], (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Christians] …”

Update: This time the students appeared to be mostly Muslim. But as is often the case, devout Muslims will kill less devout Muslims simply because they didn’t consider them committed enough to the cause of “Allah” …

Qur’an Sura 4:76, Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

Qur’an Sura 2:216, “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.”

The Guardian – “Suspected Islamic extremists have gunned down dozens of students as they slept in their dormitories during a night-time attack on an agricultural college in north-east Nigeria, the school’s provost said.

As many as 50 students may have been killed in the assault that began at about 1am local time on Sunday, said Molima Idi Mato, provost of the Yobe State College of Agriculture in Gujba.

‘They attacked our students while they were sleeping, they opened fire at them,’ he said, but could not give an exact death toll as security forces still were recovering bodies from the college.

The Nigerian military had collected 42 bodies and transported 18 injured students to Damaturu specialist hospital, according to a military intelligence official.

The school’s other 1,000 students fled the college, about 25 miles (40km) north of Damaturu town, where there have been similar attacks on schools as part of a continuing Islamist uprising, said Mato.

He said there were no security forces stationed at the college despite government assurances that they would be deployed. The state education chief, Mohammed Lamin, held a news conference two weeks ago in which he urged all schools to reopen and promised protection from soldiers and police.

Most schools in the area closed after militants on 6 July killed 29 pupils and a teacher, burning some alive in their hostels, at Mamudo, outside Damaturu.” Read more.

09/29/2013 1 comment

Examiner – “Ohioans were dazzled by a bright flash of blue light in the night sky on September 27, 2013, in southern Ohio around 11:30 p.m., eastern standard time. Could it have been a meteorite or a satellite predicted to crash to earth on Friday?

A fireball reportedly hit near a home in northern Adams County, Ohio, a few miles outside the city of Peebles causing a house fire. Those reports are unconfirmed. The six alarm fire left fireman battling the blaze into the early hours of the morning. It is unknown at this time if the residents made it out safely.

A neighbor said the meteor crossed over the city and hit near the Locust Grove Cemetery just four miles from the Great Serpent Effigy Mound

Update: As of the morning of September 28, 2013, a home outside of Peebles, Ohio, in the Locust Grove area of Adams County burned to the ground last night, the two residents of the home, an elderly couple, Jane and Lyle Lambert, died as a result of smoke inhalation. The fire is believed to be caused from the meteor or pieces of the heated meteor that hit the home.” Read more.

‘Surprising’: Reports Of Fireball Flood In From Multiple States, September Sees Record Number Of Sightings

09/29/2013 1 comment

Earth Sky – “The American Meteor Society (AMS) has reported at least 373 reports of another bright fireball – a very bright meteor, likely a small chunk of natural incoming space debris – over the U.S. last night (September 27, 2013). These reports followed a similar event over approximately the same area the day before (September 26). The AMS called the coincidence of two bright fireballs, or bright meteors, spotted over approximately the same region on consecutive days ‘surprising.’ Witnesses from Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, Wisconsin and West Virginia reported a bright light moving across the night sky on September 27 at around 11:33 p.m. local time, according to the AMS.

Fireball might sound ominous, but it is just the word astronomers use to mean bright meteor. As seen from a whole-Earth perspective, fireballs are seen often. It’s unusual to have two appear on consecutive nights over the same region, however.

September 2013 has been a busy month for sightings of bright meteors, according to the AMS. Last night’s event marks the 14th fireball sighting with at least 25 witnesses in September, the most ever since the AMS started recording sightings online, they say.” Read more.

7 Midwest States See Fireball Streak Across Sky – “Scientists have said that the meteor is similar to the one that was reported to have streaked across the sky over Russia earlier this year. One eye witness from Fort Worth described the meteor as ‘bright blue green-like lightning with what appeared to be a fire-like tail glowing red orange.’ The eye witness added that the light from the meteor was ‘extremely close and lit up neighboring rooftops.’ Another eye witness described: ‘After it exploded, the meteor got brighter and didn’t burn out until it was close to the horizon.'” Read more.

Ohio: Fireball Lights Up Sky So Bright NASA’s Detection Software Thought It Was Lightning

09/29/2013 Leave a comment

By Ben Sutherly, The Columbus Dispatch – “The brilliant streak seen on Friday night in the skies over central Ohio was a piece of an asteroid or comet that was 2 to 3 feet across and hit the atmosphere at 113,000 mph, a NASA official said yesterday.

The bright flash of light at 11:33 p.m. prompted some people to call Columbus police to ask what it was while officers chatted about the event over their radios.

‘The initial trajectory suggests it passed over Columbus, Ohio, moving slightly north of west,’ Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environments Office told The Dispatch in an email. Cooke said there were some reports of sounds similar to sonic booms, which suggests some of the fireball’s fragments made it to fairly low altitudes.

NASA’s meteor cameras in Ohio and Pennsylvania first detected it at 67 miles up, and it began breaking apart 41 miles above the earth. Cooke said it’s not yet certain, but it’s unlikely that the fireball produced meteorites on the ground given the ‘tremendous’ speed at which it was moving.

‘The fireball was so bright our meteor-detection software ‘went home to momma’ and thought it was seeing lightning,’ Cooke wrote. ‘The fireball lit up the sky, so the detection software thought it was lightning and did not flag it as a meteor/fireball.’

According to the American Meteor Society’s website, Ohio was ground zero for the sighting. The society’s fireball coordinator, Robert Lunsford, said the fireball already had generated 900 reports to the society’s website, making it the third-most reported meteor event since the group began tracking them in 2005.

‘It seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime thing,’ said Sandi Poyer of Pickerington. ‘We camp out a lot. We’ve just never seen anything like that.'” Read more.
