“We Will Kill”: Sweden On Edge After Swedish Member Of ISIS Issues Threat On Live TV

08/13/2014 2 comments

The “Word of Allah” is certainly speaking loud and clear today, and what it is saying has an awful lot to do with that which Islam loves most: death.

Host: “I’m asking you if ‘Mohammed came in order to kill.’ You verify that?” Caller: “That is 100% correct.” Host: “And to quote the Shahada [There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his messenger] while killing people is correct, too?” Caller: “Yes, we will kill them. We are not ashamed of it.”

And there we have it. Whereas the founder of Christianity came in order to give life and to give it in abundance (John 10:10), the founder of Islam came in order to take lives and to destroy as many of them as possible …

Qur’an: Sura 4:89, “Have no unbelieving friends. Kill the unbelievers [non-Muslims] wherever you find them.”

Revelation 13:15, “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

The Local – “An Islamic extremist who threatened Sweden on Arabic TV has police on alert. One terror expert says the threat should be taken seriously, and that Sweden is in desperate need of a counter-extremism programme.

The Swedish Security Service (Säpo) has received a number of worried calls since a video clip from an Arabic talk-show programme started making the rounds online.

On a recent episode of the popular Arabic talk-show programme Su’al Jari (Bold Questions), a man called in from Sweden and proceeded to threaten the country with extreme violence. (See video below, with Swedish subtitles).

‘Until the day we die, we will engage in war against Sweden and Europe,’ the man said.

Swedish Security Police (Säpo) spokeswoman Sirpa Franzén said that the reactions from Swedes had been strong.

‘Many people are upset since the video and other information is being spread online in connection to the situation in Syria,’ she told newspaper Dagens Nyheter (DN).

The caller, identified in the show as Sheikh Ahmed, said he was a member of the jihadist group IS (Islamic State, previously ISIS, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) and began making references to the Koran, saying that god had given Muslims instructions to kill non-believers.

The talk show is hosted by Rashid Hmami, a Moroccan who converted from Islam to Christianity when he was 19. Hmami proceeded to grill the caller about verses of the Koran and his methods of enforcing his religion.

‘So why do you live in Sweden? Why do you live in a land of unbelievers? You know that it is haram, forbidden for Muslims,” Hmami pressed.

‘The Islam country is God’s country which is the entire world,’ Ahmed responded.” Read more.

US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel: “The World Is Exploding All Over”

True, it is. But Hagel also stated that strong nations “can’t pick and choose which challenges and threats they’re going to deal with.” Until you’re led by a Vacationer-in-Chief named Barack Hussein Obama. Now, evidently, there is one that is certainly trying …

“Men of ill judgment ignore the good that lies within their hands, till they have lost it.” – Sophocles

By Jeryl Bier, The Weekly Standard – “Fresh off a trip to India and Australia, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel addressed a group of Marines in San Diego, California Tuesday, and may have delivered a line that will show up in Republican campaign ads this election cycle. After updating the troops on some issues in the Pacific region and the Middle East, Hagel took questions from some of the Marines and gave a stark assessment of the global security situation: ‘The world is exploding all over.’ The remark came in response to a question about the Obama administration’s realignment of the military towards the Asia-Pacific theater:

Q: Good afternoon, sir. My question is that, given that the administration’s primary focus is on the Pacific theater, how has all of the issues popping up in the world today, Russia, Iraq, Africa, the rest of the theaters pretty much affected that current mission? And how do you foresee that affecting the mission in the future?

SEC. HAGEL: Thank you. That’s a — go ahead, sit down — that’s a question I got often when I was in India and Australia. And the trip I just came from was my sixth trip to the Asia Pacific area in the last year-and-a-half. I’ve got four planned this calendar year. And so I get that question all the time. It’s a legitimate question for the very reasons you asked.

The world is exploding all over. And so is the United States going to continue to have the resources, the capabilities, the leadership, the bandwidth to continue with the rebalance toward the Asia Pacific? And the answer is yes.

Hagel went on say that, despite the rebalancing towards the Pacific, the US will not be “retreating” from any threats elsewhere in the world.

Now, that said, as I’ve said, with that rebalance, which will continue, and we are committed to do that, we’re not retreating from any other part of the world. Great powers can’t pick and choose which challenges and threats they’re going to deal with. There is no power on Earth like the United States of America…

No country is great enough, powerful enough to deal with all these threats and challenges alone in the world today. They’re too big, too complex.

Unanimocity: Top Leader Of Al-Qaida In Yemen Hails Gains Made By ISIS Caliphate

08/13/2014 Leave a comment

The longer the “Islamic State” continues to grow in size, strength and superiority the likelihood increases that we’ll be seeing branches of al-Qaida joining their rank, especially if al-Qaida affiliates continue losing their own fighters to ISIS. Even though certain tactics may be a little different between the two Sunni groups, the various claws of this Beast all serve the same deadly purpose …

Hadith, Sahih Muslim 1:33a, “The Messenger of Allah [Mohammed] said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish [Islamic] prayer …”

Hadith, Muslim 1844, 1851, “Whoever gives his oath of allegiance to a leader and gives him his hand and his heart, let him obey him as much as he can … Whoever dies and did not make an oath of allegiance (to the Muslim leader) has died a death of jaahiliyyah [like an ignorant non-Muslim in pre-Islamic times]” – The “Prophet” Mohammed

By Mohammed Ghobari and Sami Aboudi, Haaretz – “A top leader of Al-Qaida’s Yemeni branch has hailed the seizure of swathes of Iraqi territory by the Sunni guerrilla group Islamic State, raising the possibility of cooperation between two of the most active Islamist militant networks.

A senior U.S. official last month expressed concern over possible collaboration between bombmakers from Yemen and militants in Syria, where Islamic State has also seized extensive territory in the rebellion against President Bashar Assad.

‘I congratulate all the Mujahideen on all battlefronts and all Muslims on the victories that our brothers in Iraq have achieved against the puppets of the (Iranians),’ Ibrahim al-Rubaish, the main ideologue of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), said in a video posted online.

‘Who does not rejoice in the victory of the Sunni Muslims and the defeat of the gangs of [Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-] Maliki, which had tormented the Sunnis?’ he added.

Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) changed its name to Islamic State after its fighters swept through northwestern Iraq in June, and declared a caliphate spanning the parts of Iraq and Syria under its control.

The movement originally sprang out of Al-Qaida in Iraq, and shares with Al-Qaida a hatred of Shi’ite Muslims, whom they regard as heretics who have started wars against Sunnis across the Middle East.

‘The Sunnis of Iraq have realised that co-existence in Iraq is not possible … and that fighting the rejectionists (Shi’ites) is a legally binding duty,’ said Rubaish, who is on a list of 85 people wanted by the Saudi government.

‘The same situation is being repeated in Yemen and the Gulf. Will Sunnis learn the lesson of Iraq and take the initiative?’

It was not immediately possible to verify the authenticity or the date of the 11-minute recording, which appeared to have been posted on the Internet on Tuesday.

Many Sunni Islamists have hailed Islamic State’s victories against a government that they regard as heavily influenced by the Shi’ite power Iran.

But most Al-Qaida groups have refrained from breaking away from the parent to pledge allegiance to Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has declared himself caliph.” Read more.

Hamas TV: Jihadist Fighters In The Battleground Are All Civilians Fulfilling Their Religious Duty

08/13/2014 Leave a comment

In other words, every Muslim has a religious duty to kill Jews. But fret not, whether we’re Hamas or ISIS or Boko Haram or the Taliban or al-Qaeda or any other deadly terrorist organization, we’re all just ordinary peace-loving civilians. And Islamic terrorism against Jews and other non-Muslims still has nothing to do with Islam …

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

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 …”

Al-Aqsa TV Host (Hamas), 8/10/2014: “We know that the Palestinian public is a civilian public. Even the [PA] Security Forces – traffic police and civil defense – are all civilian forces. Even the Jihad fighters in the battleground are actually Palestinian civilians fulfilling their religious and national duty. This is why [we cannot make] the distinction and say ‘a civilian car’, ‘a civilian target’ and so on – since we have no regular army and no real military targets …” Listen to video.

Hamas TV: Have No Mercy On Any Israeli Civilian

08/13/2014 Leave a comment

Why should we believe anything that Islamist terror organization like Hamas have to say, terrorists whose own “religion” commands them to lie and deceive during (perpetual, unending) conflict against the “House of War” (non-Muslims)? According to these Islamists, Israeli civilians wearing civilian clothing with civilian jobs are not civilians. They’re all “invading soldiers” and are therefore legitimate targets, even tiny babies. And the Muslim fighters who are all firing rockets into Israel? Why, they’re all wearing civilian clothing and are therefore ordinary “civilians” being targeted by Israel. The sea of lies would almost be laughable if it weren’t so deadly. Yet, despite to obviousness of it all, much of the world chooses to believe them anyway. For peaceful purposes …

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

Lebanese Cleric and Head of Palestinian Islamic Scholars Association, Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), 7/20/2014: “My wish for the Jihad fighters, if they hear these words, is that they enter the settlements (i.e., towns in southern Israel) — blood for blood, killing for killing, destruction for destruction and massacre for massacre. Defeat them! Although we massacred their soldiers, we say [about Israeli civilians]: Son of Al-Qassam [Hamas fighter], son of Islam, they are all soldiers, they are all invaders; they are all criminals; have no mercy on any of them. Son of Islam, ignore the whole world that says they are civilians.” Listen to video.

Obama’s Indifference To The Islamic State Nightmare

08/13/2014 Leave a comment

It’s quite telling, isn’t it, when something that is a nightmare for much of the civilized world is a dream come true for much of the Islamic world …

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 Joseph Klein, FrontPage Mag – “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (‘ISIS,’ also known variously as ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ or simply the ‘Islamic State’) is metastasizing throughout northern and western Iraq and swaths of Syria. It won’t stop there. Jordan, Lebanon, Israel and other parts of the Middle East are within its sights. Ultimately, its pathological leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi warned, ISIS is after the United States. ‘Our last message is to the Americans. Soon we will be in direct confrontation, and the sons of Islam have prepared for such a day,’ he said last January. More recently, an ISIS spokesperson declared ‘we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.’

President Obama, after months of dithering, finally authorized air strikes against ISIS, which are helping to slow down their advance against the Kurds in northern Iraq and to provide space for urgent humanitarian relief to besieged minority groups under threat of genocide by ISIS jihadists. However, as welcome as this is, the president still views ISIS as a local Iraqi problem to be dealt with by instituting a more inclusive centralized government in Baghdad rather than seeing ISIS as part of a much larger global ideological threat.

ISIS has a swelling army of more than 10,000 fighters, including jihadists and Sunni sympathizers, and advanced weapons seized from storehouses in conquered territories.  ISIS is largely self-financed from such lucrative sources as the sale of oil from seized territories, looting of banks, taxes imposed on subjugated individuals trapped in the conquered territories, ransom paid for abductees, and donations from rich supporters in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

ISIS’s jihadist ideology and methods are barbarous. Its brutality includes summary executions, crucifixions, beheadings, abductions, forced conversions to Islam on penalty of death for disobedience, and the trafficking of girls as sex slaves. But added to their savagery, which knows no bounds, is their command of 21st century Internet technology to widely broadcast their brutal acts as a way of instilling fear in their ‘infidel’ enemies and propagandizing their exploits. An additional worry is the probability that their conquests will enable them to obtain weapons of mass destruction, such as toxic chemicals stored in the conquered territories, as may have already happened. The result, as United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told reporters on August 12th, is that ‘the poison of hatred and brutality is spreading.’

Despite the rapid spread of ISIS from its expanding bases in Syria back into Iraq where ISIS had begun its operations, President Obama essentially sat on his hands. Iraqi officials began requesting almost a year ago that the U.S. carry out drone strikes against ISIS while ISIS was still in the process of mobilizing its forces. U.S. intelligence and military experts also warned of ISIS’s rising threat. Drones could have struck ISIS fighters as they were establishing bases in Iraq’s western desert and then moving convoys across the desert – all before ISIS reached any major civilian population areas. Obama refused to take action.” Read more.
