Qur’an Sura 9:123, “O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers [non-Muslims] who are near to you and let them find in you hardness …”

And, O you who believe! When those of the unbelievers are nowhere near to you, then let them see just how hard you can be! When infidels are too far removed from the Caliphate’s web to strike fear in their hearts, do it on the world wide web instead. For peaceful purposes. Terrorism. Where would Islam be without it? …

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 …”

“Allah Is Number One”

By Perry Chiaramonte, FOX News – “The Islamic State is proving highly adept at using 21st century technology to lead the Middle East back to the Middle Ages.

The Sunni Muslim extremist group formerly known as ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) is using social media websites like Twitter and Facebook and video upload sites like YouTube and to strike fear across the Middle East as it wages its brutal campaign to create a caliphate that extends from northern Africa to Iraq.

In its most recent video, Islamic State fighters are shown executing dozens of men in the Iraqi city of Tikrit, according to a description posted on Twitter. The five-minute clip, culled from a longer propaganda video, shows the militants packing their victims into a caravan of trucks and transporting them to a field, where they force the men to lie face-down on the ground as a militia member shoots them one-by-one, execution style, with an AK-47.

The same video shows other men being dragged to the edge of a large body of water, shot point-blank in the back of the head and then thrown in.

‘The Islamic State is a social media master,’ Ryan Mauro, a national security analyst with the Clarion Project, told ‘They know these videos get them attention – but more importantly, they are seen by IS and like-minded jihadists as proof of success.

‘The videos are also an intimidation tactic. The Iraqi government is launching counterattacks, and these videos may dissuade Iraqi soldiers from participating and Iraqi civilians from cooperating with the government.’

Mauro says the videos are a haunting reminder to Iraqis of how dangerous the Islamic State is.

‘The videos reflect an unpleasant reality for Iraqis who oppose IS. Even if the Iraqi forces push IS back, it’s questionable whether they will hold that territory, and IS supporters will stay behind. Iraqis look at the videos and know that could be them.’

Another video released this week seems to reinforce this theory. It shows the …” Read more.

Flashback: Medieval Darkness: ISIS Caliphate Displays 50 Heads On Poles After Mass Beheadings – “This is Islam’s version of ‘Game of Thrones’ — only this time it isn’t fantasy. It’s all real. And worse. Because ‘Allah is Greater’ than all other gods. But if the religion of the most magnificent and merciful ‘Allah’ were to take over the world, the centuries following the 21st would be much more reminiscent of those witnessed during the Dark Ages. Backwardness. Barbarism. Bloodshed. Where would Islam be without it? …” Read more.

Flashback: Syrian Islamists Live-Tweet Sharia Amputation Of Man’s Hand For All To See – “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 …” Read more.

Nigeria: Islamists Kill Nearly As Many Christians In First Seven Months Of 2014 As They Killed In All Of 2013

 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.”

The time that was coming is already here. “It is instructive that even in perceived random attacks on communities, there is still distinct religious cleansing going on in selection and separation of Christians for elimination.” For peaceful purposes …

BRnow – “Boko Haram extremists and others have killed nearly as many Nigerian Christians in the first seven months of this year as were killed in all of 2013, the advocacy group Jubilee Campaign reported Tuesday (July 29).

Approximately 1,505 Nigerian Christians have been killed for their faith to date this year, compared to 1,783 Nigerian Christians killed in all of last year, based on Jubilee’s tally of deaths on its blog, a compilation of reports from various news sources.

The 2014 total to date is nearly 85 percent of those killed in all of last year.

In attacks targeting religious communities, Boko Haram and others also killed Muslims, government officials, and other civilians in Northern Nigeria, for a total of 4,239 deaths to date this year, compared to 3,124 deaths in all of 2013, Jubilee reported.

Christians killed to date include seven fathers of the 223 Chibok school girls still missing after Boko Haram kidnapped more than 300 students in mid-April. The men were killed July 20 when Boko Haram attacked Damboa, just 52 miles from the Borno state capital of Maiduguri, and hoisted Boko Haram flag there, the Associated Press reported.

Boko Haram and others have killed at least 52 Muslims this year, compared to 66 in all of 2013 Jubilee reported. Based on an interview with Emmanuel Ogebe, manager of Jubilee Campaign’s Justice for Jos Project, Morning Star News reported a trend this year of Boko Haram targeting some Muslims primarily because they cooperate with the Nigerian military.

‘The pattern therefore is that if you do not do what they demand, even if you are Muslim, you become an ‘apostate’ deserving of death,’ Ogebe said. ‘Therefore the difference between Boko Haram’s approach to Christian ‘infidels’ and Muslim apostates is you are killed as a Christian ‘just because’ your name is Christian – you go to church, etc. – whereas Muslims are generally killed ‘for cause,’ for example working for the government or refusing to pay extortion taxes to Boko Haram.’

In terms of the number of faith communities attacked, 75 Christian communities were assaulted in the first six months of this year, compared with eight attacks on Muslim communities, the group reported. Christian communities were defined as churches, pastors, predominantly Christian enclaves and other explicitly Christian targets. Muslim communities were defined as imams or explicitly Muslim targets, though Jubilee noted Boko Haram itself insists that it does not target mosques.

‘Prior to 2014, all so-called mosque attacks were assassination attempts on prominent Muslims who disagreed with Boko Haram,’ Jubilee reported. ‘The attacks took place when the targeted Muslims were entering or leaving a mosque, but there were no attacks on the mosque or Muslims as such.’

This year, however, marked the first targeting of Muslims in a mosque, Jubilee reported.

‘It should be noted that this attack was reported to be retaliation for their cooperation with the authorities and not necessarily for their faith,’ Jubilee reported. ‘It is instructive that even in perceived random attacks on communities, there is still distinct religious cleansing going on in selection and separation of Christians for elimination.'” Read more.

Flashback: Report: Terrorism Hits Record High In 2012, Deaths Up 89% From Prior Year, 2013 Set To Hit New Record – “Witness Islam’s ‘proud tradition of tolerance‘ where devout Muslims can’t even seem to tolerate one another, let alone Jews and Christians or anyone else. The hard reality for many willingly ignorant leftists and Sharia sympathizers to accept is the fact that this rise in global terror is being perpetrated almost exclusively by Muslims. Unfortunately, this is one inconvenient fact that the second half of the article attempts to quickly whitewash by cautioning against ‘viewing Islam itself as inherently violent’ — even though it demonstrably is. When the stone-cold reality of violent Islamism cold-clocks the liberal mind in the face it’s still only ‘racist Islamophobes’ who have the gall to claim that Islam has something to do with Islamic terrorism …” Read more.
