Slaughter In Nigeria — Where Is Obama’s State Department?

04/16/2014 3 comments

Aside from (reluctantly and half-heartedly) designating Boko Haram an actual terrorist organization, the State Department is MIA. Again. The utter lack of an efficacious foreign policy is not surprising, of course, considering some of the recent words and deeds of the man the Secretary of State himself must answer to directly …

By Faith J. H. McDonnell, FrontPage Mag – “An explosion devastated a busy bus station on the outskirts of the Nigerian capital of Abuja on Monday, April 14, 2014. It was the latest in a series of terrorist attacks on Africa’s most populous nation. No group had claimed credit for the attack as of Monday, but Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan laid the blame at the feet of Boko Haram, the Islamist terrorist group seeking the eradication of Christians and the Islamization of Nigeria.

The blast took place at 6:55 a.m. according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN). Reuters reported at least 71 dead and 124 injured, but on Tuesday, Punch raised the number dead to 89, including three perpetrators, with 257 injured. And this was not the week’s only attack.

Just days earlier, Boko Haram jihadists killed some 200 in Borno, a northeastern Nigerian state that has seen far more than its share of jihad terrorism. Punch reported that on April 9-10 attacks took place on communities in several towns, as well as on a teachers’ training college and a group of students traveling to their matriculation exams. Boko Haram seemed determined to show that ‘western education is forbidden.’

Rarer was Monday’s attack on Abuja’s Nyanya Mass Transit Park – demonstrating the terrorists’ brazenness, operating in the country’s capital, as well as the northern and middle state belts to which they have already laid claim. The blast destroyed 16 high-capacity buses and damaged another 24, as well as affecting smaller vehicles, a police spokesman told Reuters. Many of the buses were loaded with commuters, so the attack left a hellish scene of charred bodies, body parts, and twisted metal. In Tuesday’s report, Punch told of an eyewitness who said that the attack was carried out by four insurgents in a Volkswagen Golf.

According to NAN, many of the commuters in this transit point for the satellite communities of the Federal Capital Territory surrounding Abuja were on their way to work and their businesses. But Nigerian attorney and human rights activist Emmanuel Ogebe pointed out that this attack took place on the first day of Holy Week in a country in which Easter is a major holiday.

‘Abuja is emptying out as people travel to their home states for the long holiday,’ said Ogebe. He believes the bus station was targeted deliberately on the week of Easter. This would be no surprise, as a majority of Islamist attacks in Nigeria target Christians, Christian holidays (holy days), and have occurred at churches and Christian schools and universities.

The Ultimate Source Of Islamic Hate For Infidels

04/16/2014 2 comments

“[I]t’s not just a few ‘radical clerics’ — a few ‘rotten apples’ — that incite mobs to attack Christians, but rather the core texts of Islam itself” …

Qur’an Sura 8:59a, “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them …”

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

Qur’an Sura 25:52, “Therefore listen not to the Unbelievers, but strive against them with the utmost strenuousness, with the (Qur’an).”

Qur’an Sura 8:55, “Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve [non-Muslims] …”

By Raymond Ibrahim, The Counter Jihad Report – “Who is ultimately responsible for the ongoing attacks on Christians and their churches throughout the Islamic world?

Focusing on one of the most obvious nations where Christians are regularly targeted — Egypt’s Coptic Christians — one finds that the ‘mob’ is the most visible and obvious culprit.  One Copt accused of some transgression against Muslim sensibilities — from having relations with a Muslim woman, to ruining a Muslim man’s shirt — is often enough to prompt Muslim mobs to destroy entire Christian villages and their churches.

Recently, for example, after her cross identified Mary Sameh George as a Christian, a pro-Muslim Brotherhood mob attacked, beat, and slaughtered her.

However, a recent Arabic op-ed titled ‘Find the True Killer of Mary‘ looks beyond the mob to identify the true persecutor of Christians in Egypt. According to it:

Those who killed the young and vulnerable Mary Sameh George, for hanging a cross in her car, are not criminals, but rather wretches who follow those who legalized for them murder, lynching, dismemberment, and the stripping bare of young Christian girls—without every saying “kill.”  [Islamic cleric] Yassir Burhami and his colleagues who announce their hate for Christians throughout satellite channels and in mosques—claiming that hatred of Christians is synonymous with love for God—they are the true killers who need to be tried and prosecuted…  The slayers of Mary Sameh are simply a wretched mob, with the body of a bull but the brain of a worm.  It’s not the puppets on the string who need punishing, but rather the mastermind who moves the puppets with his bloody fingers behind closed curtains that needs punishing.

One fact certainly validates this Arabic op-ed’s assertions: the overwhelming majority of attacks on Christians in Egypt and other Muslim nations — including the slaughter of Mary Sameh George — occur on Friday, the one day of the week that Muslims congregate in mosques for communal prayers and to hear sermons.

The significance of this fact can easily be understood by analogy: what if Christians were especially and consistently violent to non-Christian minorities on Sunday — right after they got out of church?  What would that say about what goes on in Christian churches?

What does it say about what goes on in Muslim mosques? Read more…

British Woman Facing Execution For ‘Insulting’ Islam

04/16/2014 2 comments

How on earth can a religious ideology that is itself an insult to common sense, human decency and observable science be insulted? For a religion that is based upon nothing but lies, all that is needed is a bit of truth …

By Shadi Paveh, Gatestone Institute – “Roya Nobakht, 47, presently being detained as a political prisoner in Iran, may face execution for insulting Islam. She has lived in Stockport, England with her husband for the last six years and holds dual British-Iranian citizenship.

Her husband, Daryoush Taghipoor, has stated that his wife was arrested while visiting a friend at Iran’s Shiraz airport last October for comments she had made on a Facebook group calling the government of Iran ‘too Islamic.’ According to a copy of her charge sheet seen by the UK’s Independent; she was transferred to Tehran and charged with ‘gathering and participation with intent to commit crimes against national security and insulting Islamic sanctities’ — crimes punishable by death.

In an interview, Mr. Taghipoor told the Manchester Evening News that ‘his wife is not well at all…she has lost three stones [42 lbs]… and is scared that the government will kill her.’ He also said that a confession had been extracted from his wife ‘under duress.’ As is well documented, torture is systematically used by Iranian authorities to obtain confessions from political dissidents and even from some common prisoners.

Ms. Nobakht’s fears are not unfounded. Iran’s persecution of expatriates is nothing new. The first known case was that of Ms. Zahra Kazemi, a Canadian-Iranian photojournalist who died under torture in 2003 while in custody. Ms. Zahara Bahrami, a Dutch-Iranian, was hanged in 2011. Three Canadian-Iranians; Saeed Malekpour, Hossein Derakhshan and Hamid Ghassemi-Shall, along with American Amir Hekmati, were all arbitrarily arrested while visiting relatives in Iran on vague anti-government charges. With the exception of Mr. Ghassemi-Shall, who was recently released, each one presently languishes inside Iran as political prisoners under dire conditions.

Ms Zahra Kazemi, a Canadian-Iranian photojournalist who had left Iran in 1974, returned in 2003 to cover a story about Iran. She was soon arrested and detained in Evin prison on charges of espionage. As Iran does not recognize dual citizenships, Ms. Kazemi was not allowed representation by Canadian authorities. She later died in custody. The Iranian officials claimed she had died as a result of a stroke but refused to return her body to Canada. In 2005, however, Dr. Shahram Azam, a doctor with the Iranian security forces who had examined Ms. Kazemi’s half-dead body, fled Iran. He testified that the victim’s body showed extensive signs of torture administered over a few days. The notes from his medical journal include a crushed toe, broken fingers, missing finger nails, broken ribs, a skull fracture, severe abdominal bruising, marks of flogging on her back and feet, extensive damage to the genitals and peculiar deep scratches on her neck. She was 52 years old and the first victim of the Islamic regime’s war of terror on Iranians holding dual citizenship. Her body has never been returned to her son in Canada. After her murder, especially under the leadership of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, diplomatic relations between Iran and Canada deteriorated significantly.

Ms Zahra Bahrami, 45, who held dual Dutch-Iranian citizenship, had travelled to Iran to visit her ailing daughter. She was arrested in 2009 for Read more…

Syrian Islamists Promise To ‘Destroy’ Canada After Fighting In The Middle East

04/16/2014 1 comment

For peaceful purposes. There’s no word on whether it’ll be before or after the destruction of Europe, America, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa and their big fight against the Jews

Zechariah 5:3a, 8a, ”… This is the curse [אָלָה – alah] that goes out over the face of the whole earth … This is Wickedness …”

By Stewart Bell, AINA – “The most extreme armed faction in Syria has threatened to ‘destroy’ Canada, as Western governments are struggling to deal with radicalized citizens infatuated with Al-Qaeda ideology.

Speaking in flawless English, a member of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant said in an online video that after fighting in the Middle East, the group would turn on North America.

‘This is a message to Canada and all the American tyrants: We are coming and we will destroy you, with permission from Allah the almighty,’ the unidentified foreign fighter said.

While he did not divulge his nationality, he said he was an ’emigrant’ to Syria and his accent sounded North American. It is rare for jihadists to mention Canada in their propaganda unless they are Canadians.

Despite the threat, the young extremist did not himself seem to have the intention of travelling to Canada to conduct attacks: he followed up his brief speech by tossing his passport into a fire.

According to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, about 30 Canadians have joined Syrian extremist factions like ISIL, which is trying to impose its militant version of Islamic law in the region.

But a Canadian who goes by the nom de guerre Abu Turab and calls himself a ‘jihadi’ said in an online post there were ‘many bros from Canada’ fighting in Syria. In another post, he said there were ‘maybe 100.’

Officials are concerned about the security threat posed by foreign jihadist fighters should they return to Canada with terrorist training, combat experience and extreme anti-Western zeal.

About 130 radicalized Canadians are believed to remain active abroad, while 80 have returned to Canada from various conflict zones.” Read more.

This is to the people of the West … We’ve come here from all nationalities to defend this land, this Islamic land, to spread the Sharia of Allah on the face of the earth and to give our lives and our souls for this jihad… We’ve come to defy all kuffar from the West … to spread the Sharia of Allah … and raise it to the highest, and we’ve come to kill anyone who comes in our way… [It] will reign high above all the parliaments and capitals of the world and with these simple weapons we’ll free these lands, and free these people, and we’ll bright the right of Islam to rule all of the entire world …” Read more.

‘We Must Eliminate The Cross’: New Video Shows Largest And Most Dangerous Al Qaeda Gathering In Years

04/16/2014 3 comments

Worry not. According to the Obama Administration the war on terror is over, right? …

Isaiah 24:6a, “Therefore the curse [“alah“] has devoured the earth, And those who dwell in it are desolate …”

By Barbara Starr, CNN – “A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike.

U.S. officials won’t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States.

In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda’s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has said he wants to attack the United States. But in the video, he looks unconcerned that he could be hit by an American drone.

The video started appearing on jihadist websites recently, drawing the attention of U.S. officials and global terrorism experts. U.S. officials say they believe it’s authentic.

‘This is quite an extraordinary video,’ Paul Cruickshank, CNN terrorism analyst, said.

The video shows al-Wuhayshi addressing more than 100 fighters somewhere within Yemen, Cruickshank said, a restive nation on the southwestern portion of the Arabian Peninsula. The al Qaeda leader, he said, is ‘taking a big risk in doing this.’

But he doesn’t mince words about his mission.

In a speech to the group, al-Wuhayshi makes it clear that he’s going after the United States, saying ‘We must eliminate the cross. … The bearer of the cross is America!’

U.S. officials believe the highly produced video is recent. With some fighters faces blurred, there is worry it signals a new round of plotting.

‘The U.S. intelligence community should be surprised that such a large group of al Qaeda assembled together, including the leadership, and somehow they didn’t notice,’ said Peter Bergen, CNN national security analyst.

There is good reason to worry.

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, also known as AQAP, is considered the most dangerous al Qaeda affiliate. The CIA and the Pentagon have repeatedly killed AQAP leaders with drone strikes. But the group is now emboldened.

‘The main problem about this group is that it has a bomb maker who can put bombs on to planes that can’t be detected,’ Bergen said.” Read more.

He makes his objective clear.” Read more.
