2012, June 11th. Abstracted “Fides”: “An exodus of Christians is taking place in Western Syria: the Christian population has fled the city of Qusayr, near Homs, following an ultimatum issued by the military chief of the armed opposition, Abdel Salam Harba. Since the conflict broke out, only a thousand of the city’s ten thousand [Christians] were left and they are now being forced to flee immediately. … The city’s mosques have issued the message again, announcing from the minarets: “Christians must leave Qusayr within six days, ending Friday.” The ultimatum therefore expired on 8 June and spread fear among the Christian population. … [Some] Sources reveal a continuity in discrimination and selective repression [and] have reiterated that groups of Salafi Islamists within the armed opposition consider Christians as “infidels”; they confiscate their belongings [and] carry out mass executions [of Christians].” Comment: whilst the main Western Media is keen to talk and write about the problems of Muslims in Syria and the mass executions carried out by the Assad regime, it ignores mass executions of Christians carried out by the Opposition. From the above we can see that Christians are being religiously cleansed from Qusayr. The Salafi groups’ actions show they have declared sword-jihad against Syria’s Christians (the property of victims of jihad is “war-booty” for the ‘noble’ Mujahideen). If the Syrian ‘revolution’ succeeds, will we see Syria’s Christian population exterminated?
On Islamic Supremacy
2012, June 4th. US-based Sudanese professor of political science Muhammad Waqi’ullah: “ the Muslim fights for the sake of good, while the infidel fights for the sake of evil.” Comment: Waqi’ullah clearly sees only Muslims as good people.
On war, terror, violence and jihad.
2012 June 4th. Abstracted New York Post: “Issa Qaraqi, the PA minister of prisoners’ affairs, announced that the rally to celebrate the return of the [remains of] 91 martyrs [suicide bombers] would be held in Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ presidential compound in Ramallah, with the families of the 91 martyrs [mass-murderers] as honoured guests. After that glorification of [mass] murder, the remains will be sent to their individual home-towns, for more rallies as each killer is buried with a military funeral. Qaraqi also declared Thursday a national “day of celebration … in memory of the martyrs”. Comment: on the one hand there is nothing new in the celebration of terrorists as “martyrs” in Islam. But even though this is a commonplace, we should never forget that Islam truly does honour and glorify mass-murderers and killers – provided they murder for Allah. In Islam a “Shaheed” (which is usually translated as “martyr” or – worse – “holy martyr”) is NOT someone who is killed for his/her faith (as is a “martyr” in Western thought) but someone who KILLS for his/her faith – and incidentally dies in the act.
Bosnian Salafist Preacher Bilal Bosnić excerpts from “Songs of Jihad”.: “American had better know that I am performing da’wa. God willing, it [America] will be destroyed to its foundations. Our Taliban brothers will come from all over, And they will sentence you with their swords. Jihad is our destiny and our only desire. We raise the banner of Islam. We shall become Your martyrs, we do not fear death. Jihad, Jihad, oh Allah, will be the redemption of the believers. America and all the other tyrants had better know that all the Muslims are now like the Taliban, With explosives on our chests we pave the way to Paradise.” Comment: These are excerpts from songs sung from 2009-2012 and I’ve put them together to make a paragraph I’ll admit. But this is a reasonable summary of his Jihadi beliefs. Bosnic sees sword-jihad as part of Islamic “Da’wa”. He also sees suicide bombing “explosives on our chests” as a legitimate jihad tactic that produces martyrs (i.e. murderers) for Islam, who are thus “redeemed”. Da’wa literally means “issuing a summons [to Islam], so Bosnic is believes in spreading Islam by the sword and terror.
2012, June 7th. On-line ad by “al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula” (posted to Jihadi web-sites): “The aim of this [terrorism] training [in Yemen] is to continue [i.e. work] with our brothers who are seeking to carry out operations that make for great killing and slaughtering of the enemies of Islam… It is clear now that the individual jihad, or what is called the “lone wolf”, has become more widespread and its features have started showing… in summary, it is a complete jihadist operation to be carried out by a single bomber… [the targets of the attacks are] those who are fighting the Muslims and Islam, …[specifically the] economic, military and media interests of the enemy…. Their identity must be, according to priority, American, Israeli, French and British.” Comment: For these real Muslims jihad is equated to “great killing and slaughtering” and yet we are told that Jihad is all about “spiritual struggle” and has nothing to do with violence (yeah, right). Note that the “enemies of Islam … those who are fighting the Muslims and Islam” simply means those who are opposed to Islam. If you resist Islam by not converting you are fighting against it and thus are an enemy. The emphasis on Media targets is, at first sight, odd; but orthodox Islam does not support true free-speech (I wonder why?) so it’s suppression is a “priority…target”.
2012, June 4th. Reported BosNewsLife: Boko Haram spokesman Abul Qaqa: “We thank Allah for giving us victory. We successfully carried out a suicide bombing on a church at Yelwa in Bauchi state.” Comment: another suicide attack , another round of praise for Allah. [Irony on]. But there’s no link between Islam and such attacks, of course. [Irony off]
On Muslim “hypocrites” and apostates.
2012 June 4th. Reported “Gatestone”. (Abstract of completely graphic video): “A young man appears held down by masked men. His head is pulled back, with a knife to his throat. He does not struggle and appears resigned to his fate. Speaking in Arabic, the background speaker, or “narrator,” chants a number of Muslim prayers and supplications, mostly condemning Christianity, which, because of the Trinity, is referred to as a polytheistic faith: “Let Allah be avenged on the polytheist apostate“; “Allah empower your religion, make it victorious against the polytheists“; “Allah, defeat the infidels at the hands of the Muslims,” and “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.” Then, to cries of “Allahu Akbar!”— Allah is greater!”—the masked man holding the knife to the apostate’s throat begins to slice away, severing the head completely after approximately one minute of graphic knife-carving, as the victim drowns in blood. Finally, the severed head is held aloft to more Islamic slogans of victory. Comment: Allah is “avenged” on the apostate by the Muslim killing him. Thus, when the Koran threatens Allah’s retribution this is not seen as something “for Allah alone” but as something to be carried out by the hands of Muslims. Also: this is a “victory” for Islam “(our) god is greater (than yours)” because they can kill this person. Thus killing apostates etc. is seen as “Allah’s work” and a victory for Islam.
On Islamic tolerance and equality.
2012 May 24. London-based Kuwaiti Shiite cleric Yasser Habib: “Anyone who consents to being called “Emir of the Believers” is a passive homosexual. Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, for example, who willingly assumed this title, was, without a doubt, a passive homosexual. The same goes for the caliphs Othman Ibn Affan, Muawiyya, Yazid, and the rulers and sultans of the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties, as well as some of the rulers and sultans of our day and age. For example, the king of Morocco bears this title, and he is referred to as “the Emir of the Believers” by the [Moroccan] media. This is how you know that he is a passive homosexual. This is in addition to the evidence revealed by Western media, which showed that the current king of Morocco is indeed a passive homosexual who belongs to the homosexual community. This was leaked from his palace by his assistants, his servants, and his “boys,” whom he would penetrate and who would penetrate him. They fled to Europe, sought asylum, and exposed all this. Another such example is the person who ruled Afghanistan for a short time – the so-called “Mullah” Omar. It is told [in the hadith] that Omar Ibn Al-Khattab had an anal disease, which could be cured only by semen. One should know that this is a well-known medical condition, which is also mentioned in sacred texts. Someone who, God forbid, has been penetrated in the anus – a worm grows within him, due to the semen discharged in him… A disease develops in his anus, and as a result, he cannot calm down, unless… That’s right, it becomes like an addiction, and he cannot calm down unless he is penetrated again and again. … The Shiites are undoubtedly protected from this disease, and from committing this abominable and hideous act. … As for the Nasibis [roughly: non Shia Muslims], they are definitely afflicted with this homosexuality. … One of the devils is present at the birth of every human being. If Allah knows that the newborn is one of our Shiites, He fends off that devil, who cannot harm the newborn. But if the newborn is not one of our Shiites, the devil inserts his index finger into the anus of the newborn, who thus becomes a passive homosexual. If the newborn is not a Shiite, the devil inserts his index finger into this newborn’s anus, and when he grows up, he becomes a passive homosexual. If the newborn is a female, the devil inserts his index finger into her vagina, and she becomes a whore. Comment: Where to start? Hatred of non-Shias, raging homophobia (homsexuality is a parasitical disease?, a homophobic ad-hominem attack on two of the “rightly guided Caliphs” – Omar & Othman, but no Shia is gay). All non-Shia women are whores and all whores have been penetrated by the devil. How can anyone believe this vicious but asinine drivel?
On correct Islamic behaviour and attitudes:
2012, June 8th. Abstracted “Bikyamasr”: “Tunisia’s Human Rights Minister Samir Dilou has rejected calls by the United Nations Human Rights Council to decriminalize same-sex acts, saying that [homo]sexual orientation is a “western concept” that is “incompatible with Islam, Tunisian culture and tradition.” [Tunisia's] LGBT community, say that since the uprising ousted the former government in January 2011, the gay community has faced numerous challenges [due to] … the rise of ‘moderate’ Islamists in the country … [which has] thrown LGBT rights into the forefront, especially after the publication of the country’s first gay magazine. [An LGBT spokesperson] said: “Despite the positives of the revolution, the conservative [Islamic] backlash is hurting the overall human rights struggle in the country.” Comment: Once again human rights are subordinated to Islamic Shari’ah.
2012 June 8tth. Abstracted “Ahram Online” report: “A police patrol found Imam Ali Wanis (An Egyptian MP, Salafist Al Nour party) in a car parked on a highway near the city of Toukh in Benha – which Wanis represents in parliament – engaging in an indecent act with a 19-year-old college student. … his son vehemently denied the allegation on behalf of his father and said [he] had gone out to [give] his Friday sermon. Wanis …accused the police of ‘fabricating a scandal to get back at him [for an earlier incident and said] the allegation was part of a blackmail campaign aimed at smearing his reputation and the image of the Islamist political current.’ Wanis was permitted to leave the police station due to his political immunity.” Comment: I’m always impressed with Islamic “morality”. Thursday: have sex with 19 year old girl in car. Friday: preach about how Islam only allows sex between married couples in the Mosque. (Yes, I’m being sarcastic.) Of course, for a true follower of Mohammed, she was a little old wasn’t she? (Still being a tad tongue-in-cheek.) Note how quickly Wanis denies it’s his fault: it’s either Police corruption and/or part of a “blackmail campaign” not merely to impugn him, but also to “ smear … the image of the Islamist political current” thus this “attack” on him is really an attack on Islam – sword-Jihad declaration to follow no doubt. It must be wonderful to have such a degree of ‘moral and religious rectitude’ (cough, cough) that when you are literally caught with your trousers down this is somehow transmogrified into an attack on your religion. Note how honour/shame is involved in his (attempted) deflection of blame.
2012, June 3rd. Lebanese Cleric Amin Al-Kurdi: “They [Arabs] are now talking about the liberation of Andalusia [i.e. invasion of Portugal and Spain], …They now have their sights set on Andalusia, which the Muslims lost. Comment: In Islam everything belongs to Allah – and thus it “really” belongs to Muslims (see K6:12-13 and 7:128); so anything held or owned by non-Muslims is “stolen” from it’s rightful Muslim owners. Thus any land once “returned” to Muslim control (i.e. conquered – stolen from it’s indigenes) is forever Islamic land and must be recovered if lost.
2012, June 13th. Abstracted “IBNLive”: “Islamabad: Maulvi Ibrahim Chisti declared the anti-polio [vaccination] campaign as “un-Islamic” and announced at the local mosque that [sword] jihad should be carried out against the polio vaccination team. [He] went to the largest mosque in the area and declared that polio drops were “poison” and against Islam, [warning] that if the vaccination team forced anyone to participate in the campaign, then jihad would be “the only option”. Residents said the cleric had tried to convince them that the polio campaign was a “Western conspiracy” to render the population impotent.” Comment: Another sex-and-reproduction obsessed Imam it seems. Sadly this attitude of rejecting non-Islamic medicine is in keeping with the doctrine of “al-Wara wal-bara” (i.e. love and -especially it seems – hate for the sake of Allah).
2012, June 1st. Egyptian cleric Muhammad Hassan: “Allah disgraced the Jews, those repulsive and despicable creatures. He said: “Is it only a part of the book that you believe in, while you reject the rest? And what is the reward of those among you who do so, save disgrace in this world, and on the Day of Judgement they shall be consigned to the most grievous doom.” Comment: In Hassan’s eyes Jews are sub-human creatures.
2012, June 3rd. Lebanese Cleric Amin Al-Kurdi: “They [Arabs] are convinced, because of their faith in Allah – and we are with them – that the liberation of the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a done deal. It will be liberated, and Jerusalem and Palestine in its entirety will be in the possession of the Muslims.” Comment: and the “Zionists” will be driven into the sea, one assumes.
2012 June 9th. Reported GSN: “Homosexuality is not an offence under Indonesia’s national laws. … [but] the Tasikmalaya [City] law [criminalising homosexuality] was originally passed by councillors from Islamic parties in 2009 but city officials have taken until now to develop the regulations needed to implement it. … City secretary Tio Indra Setiadi told OnIslam.net that ‘the city would set up a squad of Sharia police to enforce the law like those already operating in Indonesia’s autonomous province of Aceh.’ [He added] ‘This bylaw is intended mainly to educate people to live in accordance with Islamic teachings.’ Comment: homophobic laws to be enforced and implicit is that all people – Muslim or otherwise – will be “educated” (i.e. compelled by law enforcement) “’to live in accordance with Islamic teachings.’”
On Islamic Politics.
2012, June 1st. Egyptian cleric Muhammad Hassan: “The American mentality is mighty in materialistic matters and in science, but look what it is like in matters of faith and values. It worships Jesus, son of Mary, instead of Allah. It defended abominable racism, based upon skin colour. They came from the end of the world to export the accursed, so-called “democracy” to Muslim countries.” Comment: Democracy? Whatever next? Equal rights for women? Disgraceful! How dare America (and the West) seek to export such a dreadful thing to the poor oppressed Ummah! Once again a cleric shows that Islam and democracy are totally incompatible.
2012 June 3rd. Grand Ayatollah Kadhim al-Hairi (in written response to question): “It is haram (forbidden by Islam) for any part of Iraq’s ruling (authorities) to vote on the side of a secular person.” Comment: As ever we see that Islam and secularism cannot co-exist. The Islamic “Church” must also be the state, or at least in charge of it.
On the status and treatment of Muslim women.
2012 May 30th Reported “Rawa News”, Afghanistan. At least 97 students of the Bashirabad girls’ high school in the northern province of Takhar were poisoned on Saturday [26th May] officials said. Seven schoolgirls are [still] in critical condition Comment: this on-going use of chemical weapons against school-children and girls in particular is amounting to a sword-jihad by the Taliban against education in general and girls’ education in particular.
2012 June 3rd. Kohistan, Pakistan. Reported “Express Tribune”: Five women in Kohistan, four of whom were filmed ‘singing and dancing’ with men at a wedding party, were [reported] killed on May 30 after a tribal jirga ordered their execution, claimed Muhammad Afzal – brother of the two accused of filming the video and uploading it on the internet. The women were kept in captivity for a month and were tortured by pouring boiling water on their bodies before they were killed. [The women's relatives] uploaded the video on the internet and also released it to some media outlets. This caused uproar in the community, which felt the video had stained the honour of the tribe’s women. Officials in the area denied the report and said the women were still alive and well. Comment: Let’s assume that the Authorities are right. Even so, consider the underlying argument: the women’s “honour” was stained, so the reaction is to kill the women, not (even if we accept the general brutality) to kill those who created the stain! Here we see how “honour” in Islam works – violently against women.
2012 June 4th. Egypt. Reported Guardian (UK) (highlights): “[Dr.] Manal Abul Hassan is a spokeswoman for the Muslim Brotherhood, and thinks there is “no problem whatsoever” in having only a handful of women [12 seats or 2.4%] in parliament. “Social justice will be delivered anyway,” She condemnsthe women demonstrating against the excesses of the military …. Dr Hassan, arguably the most powerful female politician in Egypt, believes it is up to “fathers, brothers and husbands to march and protest on behalfof women”. Comment: thus one of the few remaining female MP’s in Egypt (there were many more under Mubarak) thinks that women should be silent. Note also that this is a highly educated woman saying this, but no doubt she considers her intellect deficient compared to a man’s – as the Koran and hadith tell her it is.
2012, June 9th. Abstracted from “Ahram Online” report: Egypt. “A mob of hundreds of men have assaulted women holding a march demanding an end to sexual harassment, with the attackers overwhelming the male guardians and groping and molesting several of the female marchers in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. From the ferocity of Friday‘s assault, some of the victims said it appeared to have been an organised attempt to drive women out of demonstrations and trample on the pro-democracy protest movement. … The persistence of the attack raised the belief of many that it was intentional, though who orchestrated it was unclear. … Sexual harassment of women, including against those who wear the Islamic headscarf or even cover their face, is common in the streets of Cairo. A 2008 report by the Egyptian Centre for Women’s Rights says two-thirds of women in Egypt experienced sexual harassment on a daily basis. A string of mass assaults on women in 2006 during the Muslim feast following the holy month of Ramadan prompted police to increase the number of patrols to combat it …” Comment: thus it appears that Mussalmen think any woman outside the home is “fair game”. The really horrifying statistic is that two in three Egyptian women experience some form of “sexual harassment on a daily basis.” That means every day any given Egyptian woman has a 2/3 chance of being subject to sexual harassment. Also, why do so many attacks take place on Fridays – after the Jummah prayers? What is being preached in Mosques that so stirs up the Mussalman?
2012, June 12th. Abstracted “Al-Arabia News”: “Tunisian police have detained 86 people, after Salafi Islamists, angered by an art exhibition they say insults Islam, attacked government offices and clashed with security forces overnight … [in a] violent rampage by a mixed group of ultra-conservative Salafists and other attackers, who torched and pillaged a local court in west Tunis and attacked several police stations in the north of the capital” ministry spokesman Khaled Tarrouche said. “Seven officers were slightly injured in the clashes [and] … the fact that the violence erupted in several places at the same time makes us think that it was organized.” Other areas, including Ettadhamen and Intilaka in the west of the city, were also hit by the violence. … The Salafists have in recent weeks intensified their violence in Tunisia, and Jendouba was among towns whose police stations were torched and bars attacked by the Islamists, some armed with clubs and swords. Moderate Tunisians have also expressed deep concern over the rising power of the radical Salafists since the revolution that toppled the regime of Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. Comment: Again we see indiscriminate violence as the ‘response’ to an ‘insult’ to Islam.
Ordinary Muslims don’t support these views! … Do they?
2012 May 20th. Egyptian singer Amr El Masry, (on Melody TV via YouTube): [starts singing] “Amr El Masry: My name is Amr El Masry, [refrain]:I love Israel. I love Israel. I love Israel. I love Israel. May it be destroyed. May it be colonized. May it be destroyed. May it be colonized. May it be wiped off the map. May a wall fall on it. [refrain] May it disappear from the universe. Allah, please have it banished. May it disappear from the universe. Allah, please have it banished. [refrain] May it dangle from the noose. May I get to see it burning, Amen. I will pour petrol on it. [refrain] I am an Egyptian man. I am not a coward. Everywhere I go, my name is Amr El Masry. [refrain] [refrain] May it be targeted. May it go up in flames that will never subside. May it be targeted. May it go up in flames that will never subside. From the bottom of my heart – may a wall fall on it. [refrain] May it destroy itself. May we never hear of it again. May it destroy itself. May we never hear of it again. [refrain] May it cease to exist, not even on the border. May they say on the news that there is no more destruction. [refrain] My heart is broken under my smoking jacket. I see that you [Palestine] are occupied, so I’m off. Goodbye. Comment: El Masry is clearly another well-rounded Mussalman, anti-semitic and a lover of violence up to and including mass-murder. Also note that this tells us exactly how Islam “loves” the non-Muslim.
2012 May 31st. Transcript of News item in Belgium: “Police arrested a women wearing a niqab, [which is banned in Belgium]. When the Police asked the woman to identify herself, she refused and head-butted a female Police Officer, breaking the Officer’s nose. The [Niqabi] was arrested [for assaulting an officer] and had to be forcibly restrained. Even at the Police Station she refused to remove the veil, which had to be cut open with scissors. She was then taken to hospital when it was then found that she had a concussion [from head-butting the officer]. In hospital she sent a text requesting the Muslim Community to “take action”. A group of 25 [Muslims attacked] the Police Station and Municipal offices causing some damage and filming the events. Eventually they were ejected. Later 150 [Muslims] surrounded the Police Station and stoned the station. 8 people were arrested. Comment: a Muslima breaks the law, refuses to identify herself -as she is obliged to do, thus breaking the lawagain, assaults one Police officer causing a serious injury and fights with others, that’s three separate offences at least. Finally she is “forced” to remove her veil after her arrest (both serve her right). The Police discover that she’s concussed herself in assaulting the officer – note her concussion could not have been discoveredhad she remained veiled – she is taken to hospital for treatment, then instigates a riot by text. Clearly she and her “supporters” (i.e. rioters) think themselves above the law – Wait, they’re Muslims so of course they are (in their own minds at least), only Shari’ah law applies. The remaining question is will she be prosecuted and gaoled? One can hope, but probably not –it would be “Islamophobic” to hold her to account for her actions.
2012 June 4th. Reported “Herald Sun”: “A SUICIDE bomber who tried to drive an explosives-packed car into a church in Nigeria has killed at least 15 people, including himself…The attacker approached a checkpoint near the church in Bauchi State, which has previously been hit by Islamist group Boko Haram …he rammed the car into a security gate and the car exploded. [Services] found 15 dead bodies at the blast site and evacuated 40 injured people to a nearby hospital. … The force of the blast near the Harvest Field of Christ church … caused the building to collapse on the worshippers inside. …No group has claimed Sunday’s attack, but Boko Haram, responsible for more than 1000 deaths since July 2009, has repeatedly targeted Christians, typically while they are worshipping in church.” Comment: more death and injury by Jihad.
2012 June 4th. Reported “Star Advertiser”: “Mali. Rebels who captured the city [of Timbukto] in April have imposed …Islamic rule, prompting many residents to flee in fear and changing the face of what had been a tolerant and easygoing destination that drew tourists from around the world. Women are now forced to wear full, face-covering veils. Music is banned from the radio. Cigarettes are snatched from the mouths of pedestrians. And the look of the ancient mud-brick town is changing. An ancient monument, the shrine of a 15th-century saint, has been defaced, bars have been demolished and black flags [of jihad] have been hung around town to honour Ansar Dine, or Defenders of the Faith, the Islamist movement. “There is no liberty,” said Abdoulaye Ahmed, “[the Islamists] are constantly circulating with their guns. This is scaring people. The town is sinister.” … “Women are living in terrible fear,” said Baba Aicha Kalil, a well-known civic activist who is still living in the town,… “They want to put a veil on everything…We don’t want the Shariah here, truly we are living in misery. Personally, I am deeply concerned.” …The Islamists of Ansar Dine supported by al-Qaida … are aggressively promoting … Islamic law, or Shariah. Alpha Sane Haidara, a farmer with deep ties to the region, said: “They have brought the population to heel through terror. I’ve seen them beat up youth watching television in the street.” In the northern town of Gao, Ansar Dine followers defaced [cut off] the ear of a woman for wearing a short skirt and flogged men who drank alcohol and were accused of petty theft, Human Rights Watch reported. Mahaman Alidji Toure, a history teacher at a leading school in Timbuktu, said in a telephone interview, “They’ve told us our trousers can’t descend to our ankles.” He added, “If they find you with a cigarette, they will take you directly to the Islamic police.” A spokesman for Ansar Dine … Sanda Ould Boumana, said by telephone. “when you accept that there is Islam, you have to accept that there is Shariah …. Shariah obliges us to cover women, we are obliged to apply it … Al-Qaida “are our Islamic brothers.” Comment: first there was sword-jihad with the Tauregs as allies, then the sword of Islam turned on it’s allies until the Islamists alone ruled. Now we see full-blown Shari’ah instituted and casual brutality used in it’s enforcement in an Islamic state. No news here then.
2012, June 5th. Indonesia, Reported The Jakarta Post / Asia News Network: The Tasikmalaya City Council will soon pass a regulation that will require all Muslim women, including visitors to the West Java city, to wear headscarves. The regulation, which is currently being drafted by the local administration, will enact the Bylaw on “Community Values Based on Muslim Teachings” that was passed in 2009. Tasikmalaya city secretary Tio Indra Setiadi said on Monday that preparations for the regulation would be finished soon. ‘Hopefully, preparations for the enactment of the new bylaw will be completed this month,’ Mr Tio said. Comment: And Muslims tell us sooo often “there is no compulsion is religion”. Yeah, right, we see how true that is.
2012 June 6th. A truly revolting video from Saudi Arabia:
showing the humiliation of a Bangladeshi man, in fear of his life, by a “gentleman” from Saudi Arabia. The Saudi beats him, spits on him, forces him to kiss the Arab’s hand and foot, calls the Bangladeshi a “dog” – a dog is a ritually unclean animal in Islam – and an animal, whilst repeatedly offering him “salam” – peace! Comment: exemplifies one Islamic idea of “peace”. Note also that this is how a “brother” is treated. In Islam all Muslims are supposed to be brothers and equals, yet in a typically Orwellian gloss, some Muslims are more equal than others. I’m not even going to bother speculating about whether the release of this video will result in a prosecution – unless it be of the Bangladeshi, that is.
Not categorised or multi-category.
2012 May 25th. Dr. Suhbi al-Yaziji ( Dean of Koranic studies, Univ. Gaza): “The conquest of Andalusia [Spain, Portugal] is an old dream, something Muslims proudly hope for and will hope for in the future. We place our hopes in Allah and trust that the day will come when our triumph will not be restricted to Palestine. Our hopes go beyond that, to raise the banner of the Caliphate over the Vatican, the “Rome” of today, in accordance with the Hadith of the Prophet Mohammed: ‘Constantinople shall be conquered and then Rome’. Comment: From the Islamic perspective once a piece of land (etc.) is “claimed” by a Muslim, it forever belongs to Muslims alone. (Think about the out-workings of that!) Here al-Yaziji is maintaining the Islamic claim that “really” Spain and Portugal are Islamic lands “conquered” by the Christians (the fact that the Christians were re-taking land invaded by Islam is irrelevant to him since everything before the advent of Islam in a given area is “jahilliyah” – ignorance – and thus ignored). Further he states that Muslims should seek to bring Mohammed’s words to reality by Islam conquering “Rome” – the Vatican (read destroy Christianity). Also here is a subtle call to sword-jihad in Spain, Portugal and Italy.
Mostly for laughs.
Its not all doom and gloom in the good ol’ Dar-ul-Islam. Some things are just too funny or silly for me to ignore …
2012, June 11th. Abstracted NYT: “CAIRO: An advertisement broadcast on Egyptian television this week warned a talkative public not to open up to foreign visitors. … The commercial appeared on both state-controlled and private channels… A version of the advertisement shows three young Egyptian activists in a café freely sharing their discontent over the nation’s economic and political problems with a “mysterious foreigner”, who takes notes on a mobile phone as ominous music swells. … [The ad] struck [many] Egyptian observers as a heavy-handed attempt to cast the dissatisfaction of many young revolutionaries with Egypt’s halting transition and the military council that still holds power as unpatriotic. … [A] Tourism advocacy group [said] “if the Mossad wanted to destroy Egypt’s tourism, they [c]ouldn’t do anything better than the “spies” ad on state TV.” Ali Abderrahman, who oversees the two state channels that broadcast the ad this week, said the commercial was pulled “because we were concerned that it was being misunderstood. We are a country that aspires to raise the number of foreign visitors. The ad will be revised so it does not appear as if it is incitement against foreigners.” Comment: It’s kinda nice to find something truly hilarious in the Dar-ul-Islam. Mind you, if Egypt is serious about it’s aspiration “ to raise the number of foreign visitors” not having an Islamist dominated government might be a good first step.
