Iran: We Are Prepared For A Decisive War Against America And Israel, We Have Been ‘Making Plans’

02/28/2014 3 comments

And those plans evidently involve the use of nuclear weapons. For peaceful purposes, of course …

Hadith, Al Bukhari 4.268, “Allah’s Prophet [Mohammed] said, ‘War is deceit.’”

MEMRI – “On February 11, 2014, Iran celebrated Revolution Day, the 35th anniversary of the regime of the Islamic Revolution, against the backdrop of the start of permanent agreement nuclear talks between Iran and the superpowers, and of the ongoing struggle within Iran between the ideological stream led by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and the pragmatic stream led by Hashemi Rafsanjani, on the issue of how Iran should deal with the U.S. Revolution Day 2014 was marked by regime officials’ harsh anti-U.S. statements and by calls for maintaining Iranian hostility towards the U.S.

In two separate speeches, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei stressed that the main enemy of the revolution was the U.S. and extolled fighting it as the revolution’s central value. He added that the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran was ‘an even greater revolution than the first one,’ that is, greater than the removal of the Shah and the seizure of power by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Khamenei also called on Iranians not to be taken in by the U.S.’s overtures, and not to trust it, because its aim – that is, to topple the revolutionary regime – remains unchanged.

As part of the Iranian regime’s dismissal of the U.S. military threat, many of this year’s Revolution Day marches and demonstrations featured signs bearing the slogan in English, ‘We Are Eager For The Options On The Table,’ – a slogan praised by both Khamenei’s and Rafsanjani’s circles. Moreover, Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) naval commander Ali Fadavi stated that the U.S. would understand Iran’s might when Iran began to sink U.S. warships, with their crews of over 5,000. At the same time, Iranian Navy Adm. Rezai Haddad announced that an Iranian flotilla was en route to the Atlantic for ‘a first approach of U.S. maritime borders’[1] and that this was meant to be a ‘message’ for the U.S [2]

In his Revolution Day message, both Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan and Iranian Army chief of staff Hassan Firouzabadi stressed that Iran longs for the decisive battle with the U.S., in light of the latter’s threat to use the military option if the nuclear talks fail. In other speeches, government officials stressed that hostility towards the U.S. – ‘the Great Satan’ – would continue even if the nuclear issue were resolved, and that Iran’s smiles at the negotiating table were merely a tactical move aimed at obtaining Iran’s nuclear rights.

Following are excerpts from Iranian government officials’ statements for Revolution Day 2014. (For photos from the demonstrations and marches, see Appendix.)

Iranian Military Officials: ‘The Americans Will Know [Iran’s True Power] When Their Warships, With Over 5,000 Aboard, Sink During A Confrontation With Iran’; We Are Prepared With Ballistic Missiles, Swift Boats, And Mines; ‘The Iranian Nation Will Hand Them [The Americans] A Crushing Defeat’

In a February 11, 2014 interview with the Fars news agency, Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said: ‘The Defense Ministry is working to ensure that the Iranian people are armed and ready to confront any enemy threat. Yesterday’s successful test of Iranian-made ballistic missiles was also a crushing response to the nonsense of the American officials who frequently threaten Iran. It is a clear answer to their military option. The Defense Ministry and the Iranian nation are always ready [for battle], and Iran will welcome it if the Americans again put themselves to the test and face the consequences. The Americans will again be defeated, just as they were in the [1980-1988] Iran-Iraq war. If they implement their nonsense [i.e. their threats], the Iranian nation will hand them a crushing defeat.’[3]

The next day, February 12, Iranian Chief of Staff Hassan Firouzabadi told Fars: ‘Iran is prepared for the decisive war against the U.S. and the Zionist regime.’ He added, ‘Iran has been making plans, conducting maneuvers, and preparing its forces for this battle for years now.’[4]

Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) naval commander Ali Fadavi threatened that in battles at sea, his forces would sink American warships: ‘The Americans can spot swift boats, sea mines, and anti-ship missiles but they cannot grasp axioms such as… ‘God, the Islamic Revolution, and the Supreme Leader [Khamenei].’ On the chest of the IRGC is the [Koran] verse that clearly says that the use of measures against the infidels and the enemies must be promoted. The Americans notice only some of our capabilities; only on the battlefield will they fully internalize the bulk of our capabilities. The Americans will know [Iran’s true power] when their warships, with over 5,000 aboard, sink during a confrontation with Iran, and when they have to search the depths of the sea for their bodies.’[5]Read more.

Iran Nuke Top Dog: ‘Iran Got More Than It Gave’, Its Commitments Are ‘Temporary And Non-Obligatory’ – “Behrouz Kamalvandi: [The West] is trying to achieve, through sanctions and negotiations, what it could not achieve by means of threats. This is obviously impossible… Regardless of what some Western countries think, time is not on their side. They think that since the sanctions are still in place, time is on their side. Undoubtedly, time has been, and will continue to be, in Iran’s favor. They sought to use time to accomplish their goal of curbing our nuclear program. Since they could not dismantle it, they sought, at the very least, to curb it. This never happened.” Read more.

Why Are Christians The World’s Most Persecuted Group?

02/28/2014 5 comments

Because Satan hates God’s children …

John 16:33b, “… In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

By Raymond Ibrahim, FrontPage Mag – “Why are Christians, as a new Pew report documents, the most persecuted religious group in the world?  And why is their persecution occurring primarily throughout the Islamic world?  (In the category on ‘Countries with Very High Government Restrictions on Religion,’ Pew lists 24 countries — 20 of which are Islamic and precisely where the overwhelming majority of ‘the world’s’ Christians are actually being persecuted.)

The reason for this ubiquitous phenomenon of Muslim persecution of Christians is threefold:

Christianity is the largest religion in the world.  There are Christians practically everywhere around the globe, including in much of the Muslim world.  Moreover, because much of the land that Islam seized was originally Christian—including the Middle East and North Africa, the region that is today known as the ‘Arab world’—Muslims everywhere are still confronted with vestiges of Christianity, for example, in Syria, where many ancient churches and monasteries are currently being destroyed by al-Qaeda linked, U.S. supported ‘freedom fighters.’  Similarly, in Egypt, where Alexandria was a major center of ancient Christianity before the 7th century Islamic invasions, there still remain at least 10 million Coptic Christians (though some put the number at much higher). Due to sheer numbers alone, then, indigenous Christians are much more visible and exposed to attack by Muslims than other religious groups throughout the Arab world.   Yet as CNS News puts it, ‘President Obama expressed hope that the ‘Arab Spring’ would give rise to greater religious freedom in North Africa and the Middle East, which has had the world’s highest level of hostility towards religion in every year since 2007, when Pew first began measuring it. However, the study finds that these regions actually experienced the largest increase in religious hostilities in 2012.’

Christianity is a proselytizing faith that seeks to win over converts.  No other major religion — including Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism — except Islam itself has this missionary aspect (these faiths tend to be coterminous with their respective ethnicities: Buddhists, Asians; Judaism, Jews; Hinduism, Hindus).  Thus because Christianity is the only religion that is actively confronting Muslims with the truths of its own message, not only is it the primary religion to be accused of proselytizing but, by publicly uttering teachings that contradict Muhammad’s, Christians are accused of blaspheming as well.  Similarly, this proselytizing element is behind the fact that most Muslims who apostatize to other religions overwhelmingly convert to Christianity.  Finally, if indigenous Christians are many in the Middle East, because that is the cradle of Christianity, in other regions with large Muslim populations, such as sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia, Christian missionaries have won over millions of converts to the faith — many of whom are now targeted and persecuted according to Islam’s anti-apostasy law, which often calls for the death penalty.

Christianity is the quintessential religion of martyrdom.  From its inception — beginning with Jesus followed by his disciples and the early Church — many Christians have accepted martyrdom rather than recant their faith, in ancient times at the hands of Romans, in Medieval and modern times at the hands of pious Muslims and others.  Few other religions encourage their adherents to embrace death rather than recant, as captured by Christ’s own words: ‘But whoever denies me before men, I will deny him before my Father in heaven’ (Matt 10:33; see also Luke 14:33).’   Conversely, Islam teaches Muslims to openly Read more…

Nigeria: At Least 37 Murdered After Islamists Attack Christian College, Village In Adamawa State

For peaceful purposes …

John 16:2b-3, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God. This is because they have never known the Father or Me.”

AFP – “Suspected Boko Haram gunmen killed at least 37 people in three separate attacks in northeast Nigeria, including at a theological college, a local government official and residents said on Thursday.

The coordinated attacks in Adamawa state late on Wednesday came just a day after Islamist militant fighters were blamed for killing 43 people, most of them students, as they slept at a boarding school in Yobe state.

The chairman of the Madagali local government area in Adamawa, Maina Ularamu, said ‘a large number of militants carried out three separate attacks on Shuwa and Kirchinga in my local government area and on Michika in neighbouring Michika (district)’.

‘The gunmen divided themselves into three groups and separately attacked the three locations,’ he told AFP.

He had earlier put the death toll in Shuwa, part of Madagali local government area, at 17.

But he later told AFP that eight more bodies were recovered in the village, including three from a Christian college, confirming the account of a resident about the three burnt corpse found in the seminary.

‘The death toll in the Shuwa attack now stands at 25 after eight more bodies were recovered, including three discovered under the burnt debris of the theological school,’ Ularamu said.

In Shuwa, several buildings were burnt, including a Christian theological college and a section of a secondary school.

In Kirchinga, Samuel Garba said the gunmen were all dressed in military uniform — a tactic frequently employed by the militant fighters in previous, similar attacks.

‘The gunmen… killed eight people in our village and burnt many houses,’ he added.

‘Four people have so far been confirmed dead in Michika,’ said Abdul Kassim, who lives in the village.

The dead were a young boy who was trying to run away and three security guards, he added.” Read more.

Syrian Islamists Live-Tweet Sharia Amputation Of Man’s Hand For All To See

02/28/2014 Leave a comment

The punished thief’s hand was cut off in order to “cleanse his sins.” Breaking News: The punishment for sins has already been paid. All you have to do is simply believe in the very thing that Islam completely denies: The death and resurrection of the only begotten Son of the Living God …

1 John 1:7b, “… the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”

For Peaceful Purposes: 6th Century Barbarism In The 21st

By Liz Sly and Ahmed Ramadan, The Washington Post – “The extremist Syrian group deemed too radical even for al-Qaeda performed what may have been a Twitter first Friday: live-tweeting the amputation of a hand.

The amputation took place in the remote rural town of Maskanah in the northern province of Aleppo, according to a series of tweets posted by the account of a supporter of the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

The first showed a photograph of a blindfolded man having his arm positioned on a table by fighters as a masked man wielding a sword waits nearby. Another man, wearing a white robe of the kind favored in Arab Gulf countries, is reading a statement. A caption states that the blindfolded man is a thief who had asked to have his hand cut off ‘in order to cleanse his sins.’

A second photograph was taken just as the sword is about to strike the hand while a burly fighter restrains the victim.

A third picture posted an hour later is too graphic to show here. The man appears to be passed out, with his bloodied arm and his severed hand resting on the table. Fresh slashes in the wood suggest it took four swipes of the sword to cut the hand off.” Read more.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “John describes the rider of the Black Horse in Revelation 6:5 as having ‘scales’ or ‘balances’ in his hands, employing the Greek word ‘zygos‘ which is also used metaphorically to refer to any sort of ‘burden’ or ‘bondage’ as well as the imposition of ‘troublesome laws’… In every facet of daily life a Muslim’s conduct must be based upon a strict set of Islamic laws, called the Sharia, and anyone failing to follow ‘Allah’s’ burdensome edicts must suffer draconian punishments, non-Musims included. But take a look at the Islamic world today. Is it exemplified by peace and justice and social harmony because of ‘Allah’s laws’? To the contrary, the Islamic world is ravaged by war, by deprivation, by desert and famine and starvation and pestilences, conditions that are true both physically and spiritually, both literally and figuratively. Because of ‘Sharia lawlessness’ the ‘Religion of Peace’ is typified by widespread destruction and disparity, and any number of recent headlines bear this out all too well.” Read more.

British Imam: There Will Be More Murder, Beheadings On The Streets Of England

02/27/2014 5 comments

Revelation 9:21a, “And they did not repent of their murders …”

This unrepentant imam, Anjem Choudary, is the same imam who contends that non-Muslims are all guilty of crimes against “Allah.” During an interview with the BBC in 2005, Choudary asserted that only Muslims were innocent people. Non-Muslims “have not accepted Islam, and as far as we are concerned, that is a crime against [Allah]… as far as Muslims are concerned, you are innocent if you are a Muslim – then you are innocent in the eyes of [Allah]. If you are a non-Muslim, then you are guilty of not believing in [Allah].” According to Anjem Choudary and all like-minded followers of the “prophet” of Islam, if you don’t believe in “Allah” then you’re rejecting the “holy” Qur’an. If you’re rejecting the “holy” Qur’an you must therefore be embracing something else. And if you’re embracing something else, that could lead to deadly consequences …

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

The Huffington Post – “Radical preacher Anjem Choudary, the leader of the now banned Islam4UK, said ‘there will be other Lee Rigbys’ during a heated debate on immigration.

He also joked about expecting Home Secretary Theresa May to change the law, so she can take away his British passport.

Fresh from taking on the debate over the welfare state, Channel 5 last night aired a special programme on the ever-so-simple and light-hearted topic of immigration, including contributions from Choudary, and also a failed Apprentice candidate, a former pop star, and a woman famous for having been married to the England football manager.

Former editor of The Sun, Kelvin MacKenzie, was also on the panel.

But none sparked such a reaction on social media as Choudary, with many questioning why he should be allowed on the programme…

In an interview with one of the presenters, Nick Ferrari, Choudary said: ‘Afghanistan is not occupying Britain. Britain (sic) are going to Muslim countries and killing people.

‘This will have repercussions in this country and unless we wake up to this fact, there will be other Lee Rigbys.'” Read more.

Plague And Pestilence: Pakistan’s New Polio Strain Threatens Global Campaign Against Disease

02/27/2014 1 comment

The Religion of Death is alive and well, and its fruit continually bitter …

Luke 21:10-11, “Then He said to them, ‘Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven…’”

By Kathy Gannon, Associated Press – “Just a few weeks ago, 11-month-old Shaista was pulling herself up, giggling as she took her first wobbly steps with the helping hand of her teenage mother.

Then the polio virus struck and Shaista was no longer able to stand, her legs buckling beneath her weight. Today, her mother cries a lot and wonders what will become of her daughter in Pakistan’s male-dominated society, where a woman’s value is often measured by the quality of her husband.

‘It is not a hardship just for the child, but for the whole family,’ said the child’s 18-year-old mother, Samia Gul. ‘It is very difficult for a poor family like us. She will be dependent on us for the rest of her life.’

Shaista is one of five new polio cases to surface in Pakistan in just the first month of this year. Last year, Pakistan recorded 92 new cases, beating Nigeria and Afghanistan — the only other polio-endemic countries — by almost 2 to 1, the World Health Organisation said.

Pakistan’s beleaguered battle to eradicate polio is threatening a global, multi-billion-dollar campaign to wipe out the disease worldwide. Because of Pakistan, the virus is spreading to countries that were previously polio-free, UN officials say. ‘The largest polio virus reservoir of the world,’ is in Peshawar, in northwestern Pakistan near the border with Afghanistan, according to WHO…

Fresh cases of polio — traced through genetic sequencing to the Pakistani strain of the disease — are showing up in countries that were previously polio-free, including Syria and Egypt, as well as in the Gaza Strip, said Ban Khalid Al-Dhayi, the spokeswoman for UNICEF in Pakistan. UNICEF is tasked with persuading a reluctant tribal population that lives along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan — perhaps one of the most dangerous places on the planet — to vaccinate their children.” Read more.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “Because of ‘Sharia lawlessness’ the ‘Religion of Peace’ is typified by widespread destruction and disparity … In Sudan, for example, slavery is explicitly permitted and tens of thousands of Christians are held in bondage, taken as slaves and face starvation because of Sharia laws … In Somalia, Islamist militants deprive 1.3 million people of food, clean water and health care after banning humanitarian aid … Islamists are killing aid workers in Pakistan for trying to save lives with ‘un-Islamic’ polio vaccines… As Islamists engage in an all-out war to oust Bashar Al-Assad and implement an Islamist state in Syria, a flesh-eating parasite dubbed the ‘Aleppo Boil’ sweeps across the country … The fruit of Islam and its laws have produced and will continue to produce the type of conditions that precipitate and perpetuate all sort of pestilences, all manner of plagues, any number of conflicts and hardships both inside and outside the Islamic world.” Read more.

Syria: Jihadists Impose Islamic-Sanctioned Extortion Upon Local Christians, Threaten Death For Noncompliance

02/27/2014 1 comment

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe. Today it’s Qur’an 9:29. Tomorrow it might be 8:12 …

Qur’an Sura 9:29, “[Mohammed said] Fight those who believe not in Allah … (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Christians], until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”

Qur’an Sura 8:12b, “… terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

By Paul Dakiki, AsiaNews – “A jihadist group linked to al -Qaeda has released a set of rules of submission for Christians of Raqqa. These include a protection fee, the order to practice their faith in the privacy of their homes and a ban on wearing any obvious sign of Christianity.

The rules (termed ‘Agreement’) were drawn up and are being imposed by members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a group linked to al- Qaeda in Iraq and which aims to create a single caliphate that spans the Middle East, North Africa, Andalusia and southern Italy, the ancient Arab and Islamic lands.

Raqqa city in northern Syria had 300 thousand inhabitants before the start of the civil war in March 2011.  Of these, 1% was Christian. Now many people have fled and the city is in the hands ISIL, which released the text of the Agreement on jihadist websites.

Under the threat of violence, Christians must pay a ‘jiziya’, the ancient mandatory fee for non-Muslims.

Rich Christians have to pay a sum equal to the value of 13 grams of pure gold (half an ounce), those of the middle class half of the sum, and the poor a quarter.

Christians are banned from displaying crosses or symbols of their faith in areas frequented by Muslims and especially the market; they must not use loudspeakers for the call to prayer; they must perform their rituals behind closed doors in buildings of worship.

The group also demands that Christians comply with the rule for modest dressing that is imposed on all inhabitants.

Christians are forbidden to carry weapons and they are also forbidden to restore any of the churches or monasteries in the area that have been damaged. Those who does not adhere to these rules, will share in the destiny of those ‘people of war and rebellion’, in short they will be killed …” Read more.

Gaza: Hamas Bans The Teaching Of Human Rights To Palestinian Children

02/27/2014 Leave a comment

According to Hamas, harvesting the skulls of Jews is an “act of worship” that draws the faithful Muslim closer to “Allah.” But the promotion of human rights evidently pushes their deity of death away. From vaccines to humanitarian aid to peaceful coexistence, anything that advocates the laying down of arms and the preservation of human life is intrinsically antithetical to the “holy” teachings of Islam …

Isaiah 48:22, “‘There is no peace,’ says the LORD, ‘for the wicked.’”

Palestinian Children: Raised to Love Death

Palestinian Children: Raised to Love Death

By Khaled Abu Toameh, Gatestone Institute – “Palestinian schoolchildren in the Gaza Strip have been denied the opportunity to learn about human rights after the Hamas government determined that such a subject ‘dangerously contravenes Palestinian and Islamic culture.’

Hamas’s announcement came in response to an attempt by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to include a course on human rights in schools run by the agency in the Gaza Strip.

The UNRWA bid drew strong condemnations from the Hamas government, whose representatives accused the international agency of seeking to ‘brainwash’ Palestinian children.

Mutasame al-Minawi, a senior official with the Hamas-run Ministry of Education, explained that the main reason why his government was opposed to the human rights subject being taught in Palestinian schools is because it ‘ignores the nakba [catastrophe] of the Palestinian people, seeks to scrap the right of return for Palestinian refugees [to Israel] and promotes the culture of peaceful resistance and submission as a way of restoring our rights.’

Al-Minawi said that UNRWA proposed two years ago to include in its school curriculum the subject of human rights. UNRWA was hoping, he added, that the subject would be taught to children from Grades 7-9.

According to the Hamas official, his government back then expressed reservations about some of the contents of the subject, prompting UNRWA to amend about 40% of the material.

But recently, UNRWA decided to go ahead with its plan to teach human rights in its schools in the Gaza Strip, ignoring warnings from the Hamas government, al-Minawi claimed. ‘UNRWA is acting as a state-within-a-state,’ he charged. ‘They need to know the limits of their power and that they are committed to the curriculum taught in areas under UNRWA’s jurisdiction.’

The Hamas official said that UNRWA’s human rights course was aimed at making Palestinian children develop ‘negative sentiments towards the armed resistance although it is legitimate for a people under occupation.’

What is also worrying Hamas is that UNRWA is seeking to teach Palestinian children about the disastrous repercussions of wars and violence by depicting a child burning a military uniform. ‘This does not serve the cause of human rights,’ the Hamas official said. ‘They want to raise children on calmness.’

The Hamas protests forced UNRWA to suspend its plan to teach the subject of human rights in its schools. Some Palestinians criticized UNRWA for ‘succumbing’ to threats, while others said they were aware that the international agency had no choice but to comply.

In an attempt to calm Hamas, UNRWA denied that its school curriculum contravened Palestinian tradition and culture.

A spokesman for UNRWA said that his agency consults with ‘all components of Palestinian society’ about its human rights courses.

Hamas’s real problem with the UNRWA curriculum is that it could spoil the Islamist movement’s ongoing efforts to stir the hearts and minds of Palestinian children to wage jihad against the ‘enemies’ of Islam.

Hamas wants Palestinian children to be taught how to become suicide bombers and seek the death of Jews and ‘infidels.’

Hamas does not want Palestinian children to learn about civil rights heroes such as Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. These people were opposed to violence and therefore their ideology, according to Hamas, is in violation of Palestinian and Islamic culture.” Read more.

Somalia: Islamist Group Vows To Kill Anyone Who Supports Christians

02/26/2014 1 comment

For peaceful purposes …

Qur’an Sura 5:51, “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them [unbelievers]; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”

Qur’an: Sura 4:89, “Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.”

PJ Media – “Somali terror group Al-Shabaab told Al-Jazeera that it wouldn’t be negotiating with the government and would continue its quest to kill ‘anyone who supports the Christians.’

They also rebuffed Kenya’s claim that the Westgate mall attackers were dead, claiming they’d eventually reveal what happened to their gunmen.

‘The people we are fighting with is because of ideology. They want to colonize us. They want to erase our religion, our people and our land. Those people bring a new face every time. Every new person that comes into office works for them. So for that reason, they are no different to us. Whomever the Christians bring, no matter their name or background, we will not negotiate with them because they have no decision-making powers. They have no powers to refuse or accept anything. What you lose by force you return by force. We will not negotiate with anyone. The country is ours,’ Al-Shabaab spokesman Sheikh Ali Dheere said, stressing there will be no negotiations with new Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed Mohamed.

‘Anyone who works for the apostate government, no matter where and at what level, they are supporting the apostates and the Christians who sent them. Our stand is clear is on such people. We will fight them and kill them anywhere we see them,’ Dheere said in defending their attacks on civilians. ‘Anyone who supports the Christians, either through the pen or by carrying a weapon, they are the same to us and we will kill them… We don’t kill civilians who don’t work for the apostate government. We protect them. We do not harm them.’

The terror group also has a strong beef with Turkey and with any Turkish nationals working on development aid in the country.

‘Them building roads, schools and hospitals is similar to a man who wants to slaughter a goat. If he feeds that goat, is it any good to that goat? He is going to slaughter it anyways. The schools they have built, they teach our Somali children bad behavior; they teach them music; they teach them everything that is bad for them,” Dheere said. “The biggest enemy of the Muslim people is NATO and Turkey is part of NATO. NATO is a union of Christians. They are the number one supporters of that union. NATO uses Turkey as the hammer that’s used to crush Muslims.’

He contended that Muslims in Mogadishu ‘want to free from the enemy.'” Read more.

By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “The Imam Sweeney told them: ‘You each converted to Islam some years ago. Thereafter you were radicalised and each became an extremist, espousing views which, as has been said elsewhere, are a betrayal of Islam.’ This enraged them, and they began a fight in the courtroom. It would have been interesting to see Mufti Sweeney explain what exactly was a betrayal of Islam in the actions of Mujaahid Abu Hamza and Ismail ibn Abdullah, aka Adebolajo and Adebowale. Right after the murder, Mujaahid Abu Hamza invoked the Qur’an and made specific reference to the Islamic doctrine that one must fight against those who fight against Islam.

The Qur’an says, ‘Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors’ (2:190). That ‘do not transgress’ has often been interpreted by Islamic scholars as meaning, do not begin hostilities. I.e., this verse is a foundation for defensive jihad. But in this case, as the killer himself made clear, he believed that the soldier was fighting Muslims in Islamic lands — Iraq and Afghanistan. So the soldier was already fighting Muslims, and the killer would have thought that he was not ‘transgressing’ by therefore fighting ‘in the way of Allah those who fight you’ — i.e., the Muslims.

And how is one to fight them? ‘And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers’ (2:191). ‘Kill them wherever you overtake them’ — even on, say, a street in Woolwich.

Until British (and American) authorities come to grips with the fact that there is ample Islamic justification for such murders, and stop playing games with their Let’s Play Pretend version of Islam, there will be many more such killings.

‘Scuffle breaks out as defendants told they betray Islam,’ from ITV, February 26:

The struggle in the dock at the Old Bailey was triggered when Adebolajo and Adebowale – both wearing Islamic robes – reacted angrily to comments that Mr Justice Sweeney made about their extremist beliefs.

He told them: “You each converted to Islam some years ago. Thereafter you were radicalised and each became an extremist, espousing views which, as has been said elsewhere, are a betrayal of Islam.”

Adebowale protested that this was a lie, ranting about America and Britain, and his accomplice joined in, screaming “allahu akbar” and hurling abuse at the prison guards who grappled him to the ground.

Both men were grabbed around the face as guards struggled to control them, and taken down to the cells.The soldier’s family were visibly distressed, and one relative needed medical treatment.

Central African Republic: Christian Walking Into Muslim Area To Sell Wood Is Promptly Slaughtered By Locals

02/26/2014 2 comments

Christians are not counted among Islam’s number and, as such, are increasingly finding themselves unable to buy or sell — or even live — in more and more Muslim areas …

Qur’an Surah 9:14, “Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace …”

By Sudarsan Raghavan, The Washington Post – “Polin Pumandele was killed about 9:30 a.m.

He was a Christian walking in a Muslim enclave, carrying wood to sell. In these tense days, that is enough reason to die in the Central African Republic. A Muslim mob confronted Pumandele, 23, on a side street and pushed him around. Then, they threw him into a ditch. At least one man stabbed him before his throat was slit.

As the slaughter unfolded, some of his killers ordered a Washington Post journalist witnessing the attack Sunday to leave. ‘Allez, allez — go, go,’ one yelled, wagging his arms menacingly.

Stationed nearby was a group of Burundian peacekeepers, ordered by the United Nations to protect civilians. But they didn’t know about the killing until some men — perhaps his killers — brought Pumandele’s mutilated body past them in a wheelbarrow. They dumped his body outside the Red Cross office across from the Burundian base. And just as swiftly, Pumandele was taken to the morgue, adding to the rolls of the dead in Africa’s latest war.

At least nine other people were killed Sunday in and around the area where Pumandele died, according to human rights activists and aid agencies. Christians killed Muslims. Muslims killed Christians. Shops were burned down. Houses were looted. Bodies were burned in streets, in front of African peacekeepers. Some tried to stop the looters; others looked the other way. In all, Sunday’s events were the latest sign of the mayhem in this besieged capital, reeling from one of the worst episodes of sectarian violence on the continent in recent memory.

Pumandele was a victim of circumstance. Half an hour before he was killed, heavy gunfire erupted near the Grand Mosque, near the Red Cross office, in PK 5, one of the last remaining Muslim enclaves in the capital. Muslims accused three Christians — Pumandele and two friends — of carrying grenades and seeking to hurl them into the mosque. The Burundian soldiers took into custody two of the men, but Pumandele ran in the other direction. There were no grenades, the Burundians later said. All the youths had was fear. Pumandele simply ran the wrong way.

Within minutes, the mob had caught up with him.” Read more.

Flashback: Central African Republic: Thousands Of Christians Flee After Muslims Hunt Door-To-Door For Enemies Of ‘Allah’ – “Christian civilians fled by the thousands to the airport guarded by French forces in this chaotic capital Friday as the mostly Muslim armed fighters who have ruled the country since March hunted door-todoor for their enemies and the death toll from inter-communal violence rose to 280 people. Bodies lay decomposing along the roads in a city too dangerous for many to collect the corpses. Thursday’s clashes marked the worst unrest in Bangui in nine months and raised fears that waves of retaliatory attacks could soon follow. ‘They are slaughtering us like chickens,’ said Appolinaire Donoboy, a Christian whose family remained in hiding.” Read more.

Flashback: Central African Republic: Islamic Militants Armed With ‘Hit List’ Of Pastors And Churches Launch ‘Reign Of Terror’ Against Christians – “Islamic militants have launched a ‘reign of terror’ against Christians in Central African Republic after Seleka rebels took control of the country in a March 24 coup, rights activists said. Armed with a ‘hit list’ of pastors and places of worship, Seleka rebels systematically looted church property, even seizing money from collection plates, according to Barnabas Fund, a Christian aid and advocacy group working in the region. The reports, monitored by BosNewsLife Saturday, June 1, come after last month’s report released by the Human Rights Watch group cited ‘severe violations’ committed by Seleka rebels against civilians including rape, pillage and execution.” Read more.
