“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 … May Allah curse you!” – Leader of Boko Haram

 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.”

Morning Star News – “After weeks of sacking villages and destroying church buildings around Nigeria’s northeastern town of Gwoza, Islamic extremist group Boko Haram on Wednesday (Aug. 6) killed an estimated 100 people in the predominantly Christian town, sources said.

The shooting, fire-bombing and slashing of men, women and children in Gwoza, Borno state, as initially the military reportedly fled before an insurgent force backed by international terrorist groups, began at about 4 a.m., producing eyewitness assertions that Boko Haram, which seeks to impose sharia (Islamic law) throughout Nigeria, had taken control of the town of more than 276,000 people. Local residents reportedly said at least 100 people had been killed.

The full magnitude of the attack and the Nigerian military response was unknown as most sources have been forced to flee to Cameroon or Adamawa state, but on the initial day of the assault Pirda Tada, a Christian resident of Saha village, told Morning Star News that Boko Haram gunmen arrived in Toyota Hilux vehicles and motorcycles and attacked houses with Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and fuel-bombs.

‘I thank God for sparing my life, but three of my neighbors and members of our church were killed during the attack,’ Tada said. ‘These Christians in our village had their throats slit with knives while their hands were tied behind their backs. Some houses were bombed as the Boko Haram gunmen were chanting, ‘God is great!’ in Arabic.’

Six Christians were killed at Saha village, and the insurgents destroyed houses and shops and burned the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) building in Pegi Barawa village, Tada said. Boko Haram rebels on July 19 had attacked Saha and Pegi Barawa village, near Gwoza; six Christians were reported to have been killed in Saha village.

Francis Mbala of Gwoza confirmed that Boko Haram attacked Saha and Pegi Barawa this week.

‘The COCIN church and some houses and shops were burned down,’ he told Morning Star News.” Read more.

Flashback: Nigerian President: We’re Witnessing Signs Of The End Times As Islamists Continue Massacring Christians – “… President Goodluck Jonathan questioned whether deadly Islamist attacks on churches in his country and other violence worldwide could be signs of coming ‘end times’. ‘We received information from our personnel in Chibok that some attackers stormed a church during Sunday service yesterday and killed 15 people,’ Kanar told AFP… The attack followed another gruesome killing Friday that saw attackers slit the throats of 15 Christians in a pre-dawn raid in Musari, also in Borno state, where Boko Haram has been based.” Read more.

Is The IDF Indiscriminately Killing In Gaza? The Data Says No …

08/08/2014 Leave a comment

But who cares about what the data tells you? According to Hamas, reality doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is what they tell you instead …

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

By Haviv Rettig Gur and Adiv Sterman, The Times of Israel – “International media outlets, including The New York Times and the BBC, have raised serious questions regarding Gaza civilian casualty figures as recorded by health officials both in the Strip and abroad.

The outlets maintain that the hard data does not support the notion that the Israel Defense Forces is engaged in ‘indiscriminate’ killing of unarmed residents in the Palestinian enclave, as was suggested by several international leaders over the past month.

Citing figures released by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the BBC’s head of statistics Anthony Reuben found that the number of civilian men killed in the fighting outnumbered the number of women by a factor of nearly 3.5:1. According to the UN, 725 men were killed in the conflict as opposed to 214 women. When the 216 confirmed ‘members of armed groups’ were included in the figures, the disparity grew even larger. Israeli military officials said 750-1,000 Hamas and other gunmen had been killed in the fighting as of Tuesday, August 5.

‘If the Israeli attacks have been ‘indiscriminate,’ as the UN Human Rights Council says, it is hard to work out why they have killed so many more civilian men than women,’ Reuben noted dryly.

The question echoes a New York Times analysis from earlier this week, which showed ‘that the population most likely to be militants, men ages 20 to 29, is also the most overrepresented in the death toll: They are 9 percent of Gaza’s 1.7 million residents, but 34 percent of those killed whose ages were provided. At the same time, women and children under 15, the least likely to be legitimate targets, were the most underrepresented, making up 71 percent of the population and 33 percent of the known-age casualties.'” Read more.

Reporter: Hamas Wants Us To ‘Only Show The Damage’ – “A fighter inside Gaza City threatened to shoot me in the head if I didn’t stop taking pictures of a group of cars with tarp-covered trunks parked behind a building. Another young guy near the outskirts of the city was waving an old handgun around screaming at me because he wanted me to take a picture of the dead boy on the ground next to us under the rubble of a building. He was screaming ‘This is our hell! This is our hell!’ … It’s a dichotomy of them needing the situation to be seen, as long as you only show the damage and not the retaliatory measures.” Read more.

“Islamic State” Cleric To Muslims: Pledge Allegiance To The Caliphate Leader, “The Prince Of The Faithful”

08/08/2014 1 comment

I couldn’t help but take notice that Muslims throughout Syria and Iraq now living under the brutal control of the ISIS Caliphate are being forced to pledge allegiance to its leader, a pledge whose own words refer to him as “the Prince of the Faithful.” It may be of little significance, but it did pique my interest. Could its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, be the one who was foretold by the Prophet Daniel? Is he simply the forerunner? Or is the “prince to come” something else entirely? Which ever it may be, what we are seeing today throughout the “Islamic State” is a foretaste of what is coming tomorrow. And that is a foreboding prospect for many …

Daniel 9:26b, “… And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined.”

Islamic Cleric For ISIS Caliphate Speaking at Al-Fordos Mosque in Raqqa, Syria [~ 7:30]

Cleric: “Your leader [Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi] is a descendent of Hussein and the tribe of the prophet. We ought to love the family of the prophet. You have to support him by paying your money, sacrificing your life, and anything you can do. In the name of God the merciful we swear allegiance.”

Crowd: “We swear allegiance.”

Cleric: “To the Prince of the Faithful.”

Crowd: “To the Prince of the Faithful.”

Cleric: “And the Caliph of the Muslims.”

Crowd: “And the Caliph of the Muslims.”

Cleric: “Abu Bakr al-Qurashi [Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi].”

Crowd: “Abu Bakr al-Qurashi [Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi].”

ISIS Caliphate Threatens America: “We Will Raise The Flag Of Allah In The White House”

Considering who is already occupying the White House today, there are some days when I feel like its already been raised. Nevertheless, thanks to the Obama Administration and it’s myopic foreign policy, ISIS believes it is already well on its way to achieving that goal itself …

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.”

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.”

The Daily Caller – “The terror group President Barack Obama threatened to strike in Iraq Thursday evening is itself threatening to strike the American homeland.

‘I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,’ Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), told VICE Media in a video interview posted online Thursday. ‘Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.’

‘We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,’ he added.

The video is the first of a multipart series on ISIS VICE Media says it plans to release. VICE Media reporter Medyan Dairieh recently spent three weeks in the ISIS-controlled Syrian city of Raqqa, which the terror group has proclaimed the capital of its newly declared Islamic caliphate.

ISIS’s threat to conquer the United States came before President Obama’s Thursday announcement that he may authorize airstrikes against the terror group in order to protect American personnel in Iraq.

‘Today I authorized two operations in Iraq,’ the president said in a speech from the White House. ‘Targeted airstrikes to protect our American personnel, and a humanitarian effort to save thousands of Iraqi civilians who are trapped on a mountain without food and water, and are facing almost certain death.'” Read more.

Flashback: ISIS Caliphate To Hamas: Before We Support Your Fight Against Israel, We Must Attack America First – “The Islamic State, or ISIS, has responded to critics who have questioned why its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is not actively supporting Hamas in fighting Israel… In a statement a spokesperson for the group, Nidal Nuseiri reaffirmed that conquering ‘Bayt el-Maqdis’ (Jerusalem) and destroying the State of Israel is central to the group’s ‘jihad’, or holy war. However, he pointed out that ISIS has been taking a systematic approach in its campaign, and outlined six specific stages it said needed to be fulfilled before taking on Israel. Some of those ‘stages’ – building a firm base for an Islamic state in Iraq, and using it as a springboard to wage war in Syria and Lebanon – have already been achieved. But he said a number of other criteria still needed to be fulfilled before challenging Israel directly. Among them, Nuseiri said that the US – seen as Israel’s greatest ally – needed to be weakened politically and economically via attacks on the American mainland …” Read more.
