Oklahoma Rattled By Record-Breaking Earthquake Activity

04/05/2014 Leave a comment

By Carey Gillam, Reuters – “Earthquakes rattled residents in Oklahoma on Saturday, the latest in a series that have put the state on track for record quake activity this year, which some seismologists say may be tied to oil and gas exploration.

One earthquake recorded at 3.8 magnitude by the U.S. Geological Survey rocked houses in several communities around central Oklahoma at 7:42 a.m. local time. Another about two hours earlier in the same part of the state, north of Oklahoma City, was recorded at 2.9 magnitude, USGS said.

Those two were preceded by two more, at 2.6 magnitude, and 2.5 magnitude, that also rolled the landscape in central Oklahoma early Saturday morning. A 3.0 magnitude tremor struck late Friday night in that area as well, following a 3.4 magnitude hit Friday afternoon.

Austin Holland, a seismologist with the Oklahoma Geological Survey who tracks earthquake activity for the USGS, said the earthquake activity in the state is soaring.

‘We have had almost as many magnitude 3 and greater already in 2014 than we did for all of 2013,’ Holland said.

Last year’s number of ‘felt’ earthquakes – those strong enough to rattle items on a shelf – hit a record 222 in the state. This year, less than four months into the year, the state has recorded 253 such tremors, according to state seismic data.

‘We have already crushed last year’s record for number of earthquakes,’ Holland said.

Most earthquakes occur naturally. But scientists have long linked some small earthquakes to oil and gas work underground, which can alter pressure points and cause shifts in the earth.

Oil and gas exploration has increased in recent years across the country, spurred by U.S. efforts for energy independence. Modern hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is one particularly controversial technique.

For bigger quakes, so far this year the state has recorded 106 at 3.0 magnitude and above, according to Holland. For all of last year the state had 109 at 3.0 and above.” Read more.

Canada: Wannabe Jihadist Expresses Hatred For Christians And The West, ‘If You Ever Insult The Prophet … You Deserve A Certain Outcome’

Because non-Muslims just “don’t understand what ethics are.” White is black, and black is white. Right is wrong, and wrong is right. Islam. It’s backwards in more ways than one …

Qur’an Sura 33:57, 61, “Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in this world and the Hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained … Accursed, they will be seized wherever found and slain with a (fierce) slaughter.”

By Dalit Halevy and Ari Yashar, INN – “A Canadian court held a trial Tuesday for Mohamed Hersi, a Somali-Canadian resident of Toronto, who was accused of trying to join the Al Qaeda-affiliated Somali terrorist group Al Shabab. The group was responsible for the deadlyWestgate Mall massacre in Nairobi last September.

Hersi was arrested in 2011 at Toronto’s Pearson airport while leaving Canada, reportedly to join the terror group, in the first case of a Canadian being arrested while on their way out of the country to take part in terrorist activities, according to the National Post.

Investigations of 28-year-old Hersi began in 2010, after dry cleanersdiscovered a SD card with instructions on how to make explosives in the pocket of clothes he brought in for cleaning. After the card was transferred to police, an undercover officer was assigned to Hersi, posing as a fellow terrorist hopeful.

Over the course of the years, the officer recorded numerous conversations with Hersi in which he expressed hatred towards the West, Canada, Christians, and ‘infidels’ in general, reports Shalom Toronto.

Hersi claimed in the recordings that any rule, even that of a tyrant, would be preferable to the ‘police state’ of Canada, in which non-Muslims ‘hate Islam,’ and Christians ‘don’t understand what ethics are.’

In one taped conversation, he confessed to avidly reading the Al Qaeda propaganda magazine Inspire, and noted that he particularly enjoyed an article attacking the West and giving permission to steal from non-Muslims…

‘I always picture (myself) as a type of, you know, like a silent assassin,’ said Hersi in one recorded conversation. ‘Some of those people deserve to, you know, get what they, what’s coming to them, you know. If you ever insult the prophet Allah, peace be upon him, you deserve a certain outcome, you know.'” Read more.

Flashback: Study: Hundreds Of Thousands Of Muslim Americans Believe Anyone Insulting Mohammed Should Be Killed – “If, for the sake of argument, we use a figure of 5 million Muslims in America and if, for the sake of argument, the poll below correctly reflects the percentage of Muslims who believe that anyone insulting their prophet should face the death penalty, then the following number we can extrapolate from this data is frightening: The United States is home to 625,000 of your ‘average-all-American’ Muslims who believe you should die for hurting their feelings. That’s more people than the number of military personnel on active duty in Australia, Canada, Germany, Poland and the UK combined …” Read more.

Flashback: Canada: Muslim Cleric In Brampton Preaches Adulterers, Gays Can Benefit From Being Stoned To Death – “Listen as he explains that a Muslim who is sentenced to death by stoning actually benefits from this gruesome capital punishment as his or her soul is being purified even as the stones rain down on their head. It would almost be funny if it were in a Monty Python movie. Almost, but not quite, because there is no joke to make about a medieval form of punishment like stoning. More importantly, why is it that in the 21st century people can free to spew such hateful material all in the name of religion? Alas, it might be more widely spread than Canadians would believe.” Read more.

Flashback: Toronto Mosque Adorned With Huge Two-Storey Mural Of Qur’anic Verse Promoting Holy War Against Non-Muslims – “… imagine how Bensalem and L’Heureux-Dube would react if they saw what one Toronto-area mosque has adorned on its wall, in a huge, two-storey mural. It’s part of a Quranic verse that has over centuries been a battle cry of jihadis and the armies of the Islamic world. The mural, at the west end of Toronto’s Little India on Gerrard Street, has verse 13 of the Qur’an’s chapter 61 ‘Al-Saff’ (The Battle Array) painted in tasteful Arabic calligraphy …” Read more.

Islamic Group Urges Supporters To Kill Christians, ‘We Are Calling On All Muslims To Come Out And Fight’

For peaceful purposes …

Revelation 13:15, “And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”

By Michael Carl, WND – “The violent jihadist group aiming to put Nigeria under Islamic law is calling on its supporters to go to churches and kill Christians.

Boko Haram, in a video, also warns police to get out of the way because the group’s drive for Islamic law, or Shariah, will not be stopped.

Islam analyst Theodore Shoebat noted the jihadists sing an ominous song in the video that is ‘purely in accordance with Islamic tenets.’

They sing: ‘We are working for Allah and must bring Shariah to existence; we are committed to protecting Muslims from being annihilated by infidels. We are going to kill them. We will enter churches and slaughter Christians and barracks. We are calling on all Muslims to come out and fight jihad. If you joke, these infidels will annihilate Muslims. You see how they are killing our women and children.

In what analysts call one of Boko Haram’s most brazen video statements, the jihadists bragged that they’ve displayed their skill in northern Nigeria and against the ‘infidels’ in the northern Plateau and Kaduna states.

U.S. Nigeria Law Group managing partner and Nigeria analyst Emmanuel Ogebe said the video is possibly a ‘recruiting tool.’

‘The release of this video is probably a rallying call to embedded terrorists to deploy. Boko Haram is quite media savvy, and its main mode of communication is not conventional telecoms but videos,’ Ogebe said.

Ogebe added that the vocal tracks on the video are filled with invectives to incite Muslims to jihad.

‘The sound track of this video is laced with messages about attacks on Christians, even naming the states and location where they have ‘obliterated’ Christians and where they are going next,’ Ogebe said.” Read more.

Flashback: Islamist Leader: ‘Our Religion And Our Way Of Worship Is Nothing But Killings, Killings And Killings … Killing Is My Job’ – “‘I swear by Allah’s holy name that I will slaughter you. I will not be happy if I don’t personally put my knife on your necks and slit your throats. Yes! I’ll slaughter you! I’ll slaughter you! And I’ll slaughter you again and again… I call on all my followers and brethren wherever you are, to rise and take up arms and start killing the vagabond. Kill them, kill them and kill them… By Allah, I will kill you. Killing is my job. Let’s kill them all, we’d rather leave this world. Let the whole world perish! May Allah curse you!’” Read more.

Flashback: Nigeria: Islamists Ambush Bus, Slaughter All Christians For Not Worshipping Allah – “Christian news agency Morning Star News quoted the local pastor Pam Jang Pam as saying that the assailants ’were a combined band of ethnic Fulani herdsmen and Islamic extremist mercenaries.’ … Also wounded, he added, were two other as yet unidentified Christians, including a pregnant woman. Technical school student Emmanuel Sunday, who said he rode his motorbike near the murder scene, told media that he had seen the Christians and that gunmen stopped him to ask about his religion.” Read more.
