Indonesia: Islamic Terrorist Organization Jamaah Islamiyah Pledges Allegiance To ISIS Caliphate

08/05/2014 2 comments

Looks like the authorities had good cause for worry. Abu Bakr Ba’asyir, the spiritual leader of Jamaah Islamiyah, carries a lot of weight amongst jihadists in Indonesia. Stay tuned, I’m sure another Islamic terrorist organization is poised to pledge allegiance to the ISIS Caliphate in 3, 2, 1 …

Hadith, Saheeh Muslim 2889, “Verily Allah has shown me the eastern and western part of the earth, and I saw the authority of my Ummah (Islamic nation) dominate all that I saw.”

By Kennial Caroline Laia & Dyah Ayu Pitaloka, The Jakarta Globe – “Imprisoned terrorist convict Abu Bakar Ba’asyir has officially pledged his allegiance, or bai’at, to join the jihadist movement of a militant group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, according to an official, who says that the list of Indonesian Muslim supporters for the radical movement only continues to grow.

‘We had already tightened prison security, but unfortunately they [met] in rooms we didn’t suspect [they would use],’ said Handoyo Sudrajat, the penitentiary directorate general at the Ministry of Legal and Human Rights Affairs.

Ba’asyir, the spiritual leader of the Indonesian terror network Jamaah Islamiyah, made his bai’at to ISIS with 23 other prisoners in a praying room of what was supposed to be the highly secured Pasir Putih penitentiary on Nusakambangan Island off Cilacap, Central Java.

Meanwhile, Habib Rizieq Shihab of the Muslim hard-line Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) denied that his organization had denounced ISIS.

‘The FPI has yet decide whether it will support or refuse the establishment of ISIS [in Indonesia],’ he was quoted as saying by Kompas.com, adding that FPI leaders would assess the rapidly growing Iraqi movement to decide whether it has deviated from Islamic teachings.

As ISIS garners more support in various pockets of Indonesia, anxiety has also escalated among its citizens over the jihadist movement gaining strength within the archipelago.

The Central Java government recently discovered that a local branch of ISIS’s has been active in Sempu, Malang, for at least a month. Calling themselves Ansharul Khilafah, the cell have reportedly been using a village mosque as their headquarters.

‘I was tagged about the establishment [of Ansharullah Khilafah] on Facebook, so my friends and I went [to the mosque]. There was a video screening and a sermon about ISIS. They handed out Al Mustaqbal magazines, brochures and vouchers for fried chicken,’ Malang resident Aji Prase told the Jakarta Globe.

‘We are worried about the [existence of ISIS], which is notorious for its brutal force and violence. They won’t hesitate to kill anyone who doesn’t fall in line with [their ideology]. We don’t want Malang to be its headquarters, because this would only bring violence here,’ he added.

In a mere week the militant group’s influence has reportedly spread to several other areas of Central Java, particularly Solo. A number of media portals have reported scores of Surakarta Muslims pledging their oath to ISIS.” Read more.

Good News: Italy Expels Mosque Imam Who Prayed For The Genocide Of Jews

08/05/2014 2 comments

Here’s a nice update to this story. If Italy is going to begin expelling Muslim preachers for asking “Allah” to kill all Jews, however, they just might want to think about putting the boot of Italy to virtually every imam across the country. Killing Jews is, after all, one of the fundamental aspirations of all truly devout Muslims, and one that is rooted in a commandment from the “prophet” of Islam himself …

Hadith, Tabari 7:97, “The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.’”

Hadith, Sahih Muslim, 41:6985, “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him …”

111111-c_s-500ZNews – “Italy said Tuesday it is expelling a Moroccan imam caught on video inciting violence against Jews during Israel’s offensive against Hamas militants in Gaza.

The imam was filmed during a Friday sermon in a mosque near Venice last month calling for Jews to be killed ‘one by one’, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (Memri), which published the video on its website.

Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said he had ordered the expulsion of Raoudi Aldelbar ‘for seriously disturbing public order, being a danger to national security and for religious discrimination,’ after experts carried out a thorough examination of the footage.

Aldelbar, an imam in the town of San Dona di Piave in northern Italy, appeared in the video to launch into a diatribe against the Jews, in which he said: ‘Oh Allah, bring upon them that which will make us happy. Count them one by one, and kill them one by one.’

Alfano said the speech was ‘unacceptable’ as it was ‘of clear anti-Semitic tone, containing explicit incitements to violence and religious hate’.

Anti-Semitic graffiti was scrawled across walls in several areas of Rome last month in protest at Israel’s deadly offensive against Gaza.” Source – ZNews.

“Hand Of God”: Gaza Terrorist Firing Rockets At Israel Laments How “Their God Changes Their Path In Mid-Air”

08/05/2014 16 comments

While “Allah” continues to be missing in action, the God of Israel who remains the same yesterday, today and forever continues to work in mysterious ways …

Deuteronomy 20:3b-4, “…. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; ‘for the LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’”

Ezekiel 38:23, “Thus I will magnify Myself and sanctify Myself, and I will be known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am the LORD.”

By Joe Kovacs, WND – “More claims of divine intervention are being reported in the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, with an operator of Israel’s Iron Dome missile-defense system saying he personally witnessed ‘the hand of God’ diverting an incoming rocket out of harm’s way.

Israel Today translated a report from a Hebrew-language news site, which noted the Iron Dome battery failed three times to intercept an incoming rocket headed toward Tel Aviv last week.

The commander recalled: ‘A missile was fired from Gaza. Iron Dome precisely calculated [its trajectory]. We know where these missiles are going to land down to a radius of 200 meters. This particular missile was going to hit either the Azrieli Towers, the Kirya (Israel’s equivalent of the Pentagon) or [a central Tel Aviv railway station]. Hundreds could have died.

‘We fired the first [interceptor]. It missed. Second [interceptor]. It missed. This is very rare. I was in shock. At this point we had just four seconds until the missile lands. We had already notified emergency services to converge on the target location and had warned of a mass-casualty incident.

‘Suddenly, Iron Dome (which calculates wind speeds, among other things) shows a major wind coming from the east, a strong wind that … sends the missile into the sea. We were all stunned. I stood up and shouted, ‘There is a God!’

‘I witnessed this miracle with my own eyes. It was not told or reported to me. I saw the hand of God send that missile into the sea.’

‘Their God changes the path of our rockets in mid-air, said a terrorist,’ was the headline in the July 18 edition of the Jewish Telegraph.

It was a partial quote from Barbara Ordman, who lives in Ma’ale Adumim on the West Bank.

Her exact quotation was: ‘As one of the terrorists from Gaza was reported to say when asked why they couldn’t aim their rockets more effectively: “We do aim them, but their God changes their path in mid-air.’

She opened her piece by noting: ‘In October 1956, [Israeli Prime Minister] David Ben Gurion was interviewed by CBS. He stated: ‘In Israel, in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles.’'” Read more.

Amos 9:14-15, “… I will bring my people Israel back from exile. ‘They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant Israel in their own land, never again to be uprooted from the land I have given them,’ says the LORD your God.”

The soldiers were in danger of being revealed in the light but, Winter recalled, a heavy fog descended to cover their movements until the objective was achieved. ‘Suddenly a cloud protected us,’ he said …” Read more.

“Everyone Like Him Will Have The Same End”: Muslims Behead Christian After Forcing Him To Deny Christ And Salute Mohammed As Allah’s Messenger

08/05/2014 5 comments

Convert to Islam or you will be beheaded” is one of the messages being communicated to Christians throughout much of the Muslim world today. But conversion, it seems, guarantees nothing. Here is a man who was a Christian and had been guaranteed the promise of eternal life through faith in Christ — right up until he denied Him. Now, I can assure you that some will claim that a Christian can never lose their salvation and, since this man denied Christ before his beheading, he could not have been a true believer to begin with. But if “once-saved-always-saved” were a Biblical teaching, then what point was God making when the Holy Spirit inspired the writer of Hebrews to warn believers against drifting away, against departing from the faith, against disobedience and apostasy (Hebrews 2:1-4; 3:12-14; 4:11; 5:11-6:6)?  Why would  Jesus have implied that names can be blotted from the Book of Life (Revelation 3:5)? Why does 1 Timothy 4:1 teach us that “in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”? It does not stand to reason that one can depart from the faith if they never held to the faith in the first place.

To the surprise of some, Jesus explicitly taught against the idea of “once-saved-always-saved” in Luke 8:11-15. According to Christ Himself, to believe is to be saved (8:12), but He said there would be those who only “believe for a while” (8:13) and, as such, are only saved for awhile. They had a faith that was during a time, but not a faith that was enduring time. If they were to die while they still believed they would go to heaven, even though they would have later fallen away in a “time of temptation” if they had lived. The man in this report, sadly, gave in to the temptation that he might live if he denied Christ and repeated the Beast’s “Shahada” for conversion to Islam. Now he has died in denial of the only One who could have saved his soul.

To all brothers and sisters in the Lord, may this serve as a reminder that we MUST abide in Christ Jesus and endure till the very end, even unto death. When we do, we are guaranteed that He, too, will abide in us, for when we are in Him no one can pluck us out of His hand. May God have mercy on this man’s soul …

Matthew 10:32-33, “… whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.”

Revelation 2:10, “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer … Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”

By Leonardo Blair, Christian Post – “A Christian man in Syria recently had his head brutally hacked off by Islamic militants after being forced to deny his faith and salute Mohammed as ‘the messenger of God’.

The incident was caught on video for the world to see and broadcast as a warning to ‘everyone like him’.

In the video that was posted to YouTube with translated captions, the helpless Christian man is surrounded by armed militants wearing masks and he is heard reciting as instructed: ‘There is no God but God and I testify that Mohammed is the messenger of God.’

An apparent leader in the group of militants is then heard instructing the group: ‘No one will shoot him now, do you understand? He will not be killed by shooting because it is merciful for him.’

‘He will be beheaded because he is Kaffir, non-Muslim, sided [with] the government and was not praying at all. Everyone like him will have the same end, beheading,’ said the militant.

A militant armed with a machete then grabs the defenseless man by the hair and begins to cut his head from his body as the group cries ‘Allahu Akbar…there is no God but God.’

The 2014 report from the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom highlights Syria among several countries where being a Christian can be extremely hazardous due to terrorist and extremist Muslim threats.” Read more.
