On non-Muslims.

2014, 14th Feb. Abstracted “Pakistan Today”. The Kalash people of Chitral Valley who are an ancient and distinct ethnic group who practice polytheism have been “approached” by the Taliban with Islamic Dawah. In a 50 min video the Taliban narrator says: “By the grace of Allah, an increasing number of people from the Kalash tribe are embracing Islam and we want to make it clear to the Kalash tribe that they will be eliminated … if they don’t embrace Islam”. The video also attacks charities and NGOs that are trying to help the Kalash. Comment: A clear threat of genocide. This is the ancient method of dealing with “Mushrikoon” (polytheists) – accept Islam or die.

2014, 16th Feb. Abstracted “MorningStarNews”. JUBA, South Sudan – The Sudanese Air Force bombed more civilians in South Kordofan state this week as part of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir’s campaign to rid the country of Christianity and the ethnic Nuba people he has been stepping up his bombing campaign against the South Kordofan Christians in the past few months. Comment: Bashir has previously been caught on camera calling on his Muslim army to commit genocide against the Christians of Kordofan, this is just more of the same.

2014, 2nd Mar. Abstracted “Fox News”. Syria: Recently the besieged Christian community in Raqqa – a city in northern Syria – has faced three stark alternatives from Muslims: “Convert. Submit to Islam. Or face the sword.” The Christians chose “to sign the dhimma treaty over war,” the ISIL statement said adding “If they reject [becoming Dhimmis], they are subject to being legitimate targets, and nothing will remain between them and ISIS other than the sword.” The Christians are now subject to Islamic Shariah law, which among other things forbids them to repair their war-torn churches, worship or pray in public, ring church bells, or wear crosses or other symbols of their faith. Bearing arms is, of course, forbidden, as are alcoholic beverages. Comment: Pure Koran, K.9:29. “Become Muslim, become Dhimmi, or become dead.” These conditions are paralleled in the Pact of Umar.

2014, 17th Mar. Abstracted “BosNewsLife”. Iran has jailed dozens of evangelical Christians, many of whom are converts from Muslim backgrounds, according to a new United Nations report, at least 49 Christians remained detained in the Islamic Republic of Iran as at January 2014. Most prosecuted Christians “appear to be converts from Muslim backgrounds or those that minister to Iranian Muslims,” the UN rapporteur explained. “Iranian authorities at the highest levels have designated house churches and evangelical Christians as threats to national security.” Iranian officials of routinely threatening “to prosecute Christian converts for apostasy” which carries the death penalty. “While not found in any Iranian criminal law” Christians have been “prosecuted based on an Islamic law interpretation commonly used by Iranian courts,” he said. “As at 3 January 2014, at least 307 members of [all] religious minorities were in detention”. Comment: Once again a truly Islamic Country shows the true face of Islamic “tolerance”.

On Islamic Supremacy and Dhimmitude.

2014 5th Feb. Abstracted “Christianity today”. A Christian family in Algeria has been refused permission to bury their son in the local public cemetery because he was not a Muslim. “The leaders of the mosque demanded that I would have to follow Islamic burial rites if I was to bury my son in the cemetery,” said the father the young man. “The Muslim community of Chemini informed us that their religion does not allow them to bury a Christian in a cemetery where Muslims are also buried,” said Nordine Mahmoudi, their pastor. This is not the first time that Muslims in Algeria have opposed a Christian burial at a local cemetery. In 2011, the Muslim community in the town of Akbou, also in Kabylie, refused to admit a Christian burial in the local cemetery, saying that “Islam does not tolerate the burial of unbelievers alongside Muslims”. Comment: Of course Islam “does not tolerate the burial of unbelievers alongside Muslims”, since all non-Muslims are “najjis” (filthy, polluting) and might contaminate the ‘noble’ Muslims. For the same reason Muslims in the West demand (preferably) entirely separate cemeteries, or at least completely separate sections in Public cemeteries to ensure their dead are not defiled by proximity to burials of najjis (and inferior) non-Muslims.

2014, 19th Feb. Abstracted “Times of India”. Former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket board Ijaz Butt described the ICC (international Cricket Council) members from India, Australia and England as “sons of pigs” on live TV. Comment: another prominent Mussalman shows the orthodox supremacist attitude to the Kafir.

2014, 20th Feb. Abstracted “Daily Mail” UK. “extremist” Palestinian-born cleric Haitham al-Haddad who has claimed Jews are descended from ‘apes and pigs’, calls gays ‘criminals’, supported the murder of apostates, wife-beating and FGM was recently given yet another platform to speak to students of the Society of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) by the University of London. SOAS organisers defended al-Haddad from criticism levelled by civil liberties student bodies and others. Comment: dhimmitude in action at yet another UK university.

On war, terror, violence and jihad.

2014, 30th Jan. Abstracted “ABNA”. Lebanese Sheikh Omar al-Atrash, who is under arrest for accusations related to recruiting suicide bombers and planning terrorist attacks which have recently rocked the southern suburb of Beirut and Hermel. Atrash [confessed to] including moving explosive-rigged cars to Beirut and his prior knowledge of a plan to widen the suicide attacks in the capital’s southern suburb (Dahiyeh). Comment: Another Sheikh supporting violence “in the way of Allah”.

2014, 30th Jan. Source “Business News”. Tunisia: An Imam in the city of El Kef was sentenced to six months in prison for inciting hatred and murder against the police. The imam has made a habit of encouraging the killing of law enforcement officials calling them “Taghout” [~devils] and uses the speakers of the mosque to disseminate his hate-preach. Comment: Another Imam using the mosque to call for violence/terror .

2014, 31st Jan. Abstracted “Memri”. Sudanese Cleric Al-Jazouli: Allah said: “Fight them until there is no more strife and Allah’s religion prevails.” The purpose of Jihad is to prevent strife. Jihad is not strife. Allah says that if not for Jihad, there would be chaos… Allah says that Jihad brings order. The shedding of the blood of infidels is for the sake of purification and security. The killing of an infidel, the bombing of an embassy, the killing of US diplomats, or the killing of Rafidite Shiites do not constitute chaos. These are great, noble, and blessed steps [of Jihad] towards order. Comment: Ho hum. Another Muslim religious leader telling us that Jihad is all about killing infidels or the “wrong kind” of Muslim.

2014, 7th Feb. Abstracted “Gulf News”. Lebanon: Sunni Sheikh Omar Ebrahim Al Atrash has been charged, along with five others, in connection with two suicide bombings in southern Beirut last month that killed at least six people. Al Atrash admitted ties to three wanted individuals [terrorists], as well as to the Al Qaida-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) and Al Nusra Front. Comment: Another sheikh proving that Islam really is the religion of pieces, err, peace.

2014, 12th Feb. Abstracted “Times of India”. Sochi: The “Caucasus Emirate”, a militant Islamist group writes: “All who are able to read this letter can supplicate that the Almighty destroys the land in Sochi with an earthquake, and makes the infidels ‘drunk of water’ before Hell and drown in a flood!.. May Allah give the infidels in Sochi the last earthquake of their lives!” Comment: another call for peace, tolerance and inter-faith from the religion of peace. [Sarc off].

2014, 19th Feb. Abstracted “Gatestone”. British Imam Anjem Choudhary said of the recent British suicide bomber Abdul Waheed Majeed: “He was a good father, a family man who was dedicated to make sure all his actions were based on the [religious] texts.” Comment: once again “Andy” tells us that suicide bombing is according to Islamic teaching.

2014 1st Mar. Abstracted “Daily News” Tanzania. Arusha region leader Sheikh Mustapha M. Kiago suffered severe injuries after he was drenched with a corrosive liquid. Prior to the attack a fellow Muslim leader, Sheikh abu Ismail had called on Kiago to launch a “holy jihad” in Arusha Region. Kiago had refused and Ismail threatened Kiago telling him to call the Jihad in all local mosques or “face the consequences”. Comment: another instance where the “religion of peace” objects to a peaceful Muslim leader .

2014, 11th Mar. Abstracted “Google hosted news”. Kenya: Abubaker Shariff Ahmed, aka “Makaburi”: “As per the Koran, as per the religion of Islam, Westgate was 100 percent justified,” the Muslim cleric said of the attack that left at least 67 dead, among them women and children cut down by machine gun fire or grenades. Comment: Yes, terrorism is in accord with Islam.

2014, 15th Mar. Abstracted “Pakistan Today”. Abdullah Mansour, leader of the Turkestan Islamic Party: “The fight against China is our Islamic responsibility and we have to fulfill it. China is not only our enemy, but it is the enemy of all Muslims … We have plans for many attacks in China.” Comment: another Muslim leader inciting the killing of non-Muslims.

On Muslim hypocrites and apostates.

2014, 2nd Feb. Abstracted “Dawn”. Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Shahidullah Shahid: “The objective of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is enforcement of Sharia in the country, whether through peace or war”. Comment: Again orthodox Muslims threaten to (continue to) kill those Muslims who don’t agree with them and, therefore, aren’t “Muslim enough” – see also related second item in “On Islamic politics”, below. See also here for another report (6th Feb.) on TTP’s negotiating position: summarised – full Sharia.

On Islamic tolerance and equality.

2014, 8th Feb. Abstracted “Ibtimes”. The [Islamic] government of Indonesia’s Aceh province has approved a new law obliging every citizen to follow the sharia Islamic legal code regardless of their religion. Councillor Abdulah Saleh told the Jakarta Post that the new behaviour law “does indeed oblige everyone in Aceh to follow sharia without exception.” Saleh said that the law stipulated that all those found to have violated sharia would be tried under Islamic law regardless of their religion. The sharia authorities will have the power to arrest suspected violators, conduct raids on and confiscate their property. Even if the sharia court acquits a defendant, he or she will be required to undergo “rehabilitation”. Comment: Muslims demand the freedom to dress how they want in non-Muslim Countries, and yet again we see Muslims denying non-Muslims the freedom to dress how they want in Muslim Countries. Tolerance is a one-way in Islam. Note also that even those acquitted will have to be “rehabilitated”. In history, if a non-Muslim “offended” against Islam, his “rehabilitation” often involved obligatory conversion to Islam as an alternative to death.

2014, 28th Feb. Abstracted “The Guardian”. The article details how the Taliban has muzzled the “liberal-minded” Pakistan Express Tribune paper through the simple (and effective) expedient of shooting three of it’s journalists. As a result of the attack, the PET sent out guidelines that forbade any criticism of “any militant organisation [e.g. the Taliban] and its allies like the Jamaat-e-Islami, religious parties and the Tehrik-e-Insaf” (Imran Khan’s party). From this we can see that, once again, Islam’s terror-tactics (based on the example of the ‘holy’ prophet Mohammed who likewise had satirical poets killed) are effective at silencing criticism even when it comes from other Muslims.

On correct Islamic behaviour and attitudes:

2014, 6th Feb. Abstracted “Blazing cat fur”. A new Afghan law will allow men to attack their wives, children and sisters without fear of judicial punishment, undoing years of slow progress in tackling violence in a country blighted by so-called “honour” killings, forced marriage and vicious domestic abuse. The small but significant change to Afghanistan’s criminal prosecution code bans relatives of an accused person from testifying against them. Most violence against women in Afghanistan is within the family, so the law will effectively silence victims as well as most potential witnesses to their suffering. Comment: another step forward for Islam, another step back for humanity.

2014, 6th Feb. Abstracted “Daily Mail”. A group of Britons “waging jihad” by fighting against the Assad regime in Syria have threatened to carry out terror attacks in the UK. They warned of atrocities on London’s public transport, at financial centres and also at the White House in the US. These are believed to be the first direct threats of terrorist strikes in the West to emerge from Syria, where hundreds of Britons are among thousands of foreign fighters who have joined jihadist rebel groups. Comment: note that these west and host society hating jihadis are fighting for the (oxymoron coming) “free Syrian army” – you know the supposed “good guys” the US and Europe are supporting. If our supporting our worst enemies weren’t so suicidally STUPID, it would be funny.

2014, 18th Feb. Abstracted “Huffington Post UK”. “Imam” Anjem Choudhary who describes himself as “a Muslim living in Britain who has a British passport” said that the U.K. should expect “more Lee Rigbys” on a Channel 5 TV programme. Comment: I always admire Choudhary’s forthrightness. He admits (implicitly) that he has no loyalty to the U.K.; which feeds, clothes and houses him on benefits (reportedly totalling >24K£ p.a., and which he has called “jihad seekers allowance”); but only to Islam. He also states that the U.K. can expect more Islamic violence and murder. Why people (both Muslim and non-Muslim) say he should be silenced I have no idea, he is that rarest of rare birds: an orthodox Muslim who does not indulge in Taqiyya! He openly and honestly “tells it as it is”. It must baffle him that most non-Muslims simply refuse to believe him! Either that or he finds the stupidity of those Kafirs hilarious of course.

2014, 20th Feb. Abstracted “Interfax-religion”. Kyrgyzstan: An Imam was in charge of the terrorist group detained in southern Kyrgyzstan. The Imam was trained in a religious school in Syria and studied in the United Arab Emirates. Religious leadersoften head extremist groups the police said. Comment: Imams heading up terror groups? Can’t be true – Islam is the religion of peace don’t forget [sarc/irony off].

2014, 21st Feb. Abstracted “BBC News.” A pregnant Ethiopian woman who says she was gang-raped in Sudan has been convicted of “indecent acts”. She narrowly avoided being charged with and convicted of adultery (which carries a death-by-stoning penalty) by persuading the Court she was a divorcee. The three men admitted admitted having sex with the woman and who videoed and distributed the (alleged) gang-rape were sentenced to flogging. Comment: again we see the need for four male witnesses to prove a rape or gang-rape under Sharia. Under Sharia there is no proof of rape here – hence the victim gets convicted of “indecent acts”. No wonder there are few reported rapes in many Muslim Countries.

2014, 8th Mar. Abstracted “Yahoo news”. Iraq: the cabinet has recently passed a draft bill called the “Ja’afari Law”. It’s provisions are: 1. lowering the legal age of marriage for girls to nine. 2. Giving father’s automatic custody of children when they (the children that is) reach 2 years. 3. Legally obliging wives to render sex-on-demand to their husband. If it passes parliamentary review, the draft bill will become law. Comment: another regressive step for women’s rights from a regressive ideology.

2014, 8th Mar. Abstracted “Examiner”. Briton Anjem Choudhary tweeted: “Democracy, Freedom, Secularism, Liberty, Human Rights, Amnesty, UN, ARE OPPOSITE TO Islam, Shari’ah, Khilafah, Jihad, Quran, Sunnah, Divine rights.Comment: WE KNOW. What’s unusual is for a Muslim leader to SAY it. But “Imam Andy” is honest.

2014, 11th Mar. Abstracted “Yahoo news”. The article details how Boko Haram have destroyed “western” style health care in the State or Borno, northern Nigeria. Hospitals and Pharmacies (many Christian owned or run) have been looted and destroyed, medical staff kidnapped for ransom and Vaccination programmes and workers attacked. Comment: no nasty western medicine or education for us good Muslims thank you! And we’ll kill you to get our way.

On anti-Semitism.

2014 1st Mar. Abstracted “INN”. Palestinian- Canadian Dr. Nazih Khatatba, editor of the Toronto Arabic paper Meshwar: “Why should any Palestinian have to declare belief in the Jewish Holocaust, and why should we accept it as truth?” Comment: why indeed. Historical truth matters little in comparison to the “Islamic narrative”.

On homophobia.

2014, 17th Feb Abstracted “Nyasa Asia Times”. The Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) is calling for the law on homosexuality to be strengthened in what he termed the “secular state” of Malawi. Sheikh General Dr. Salmin Omar Idrussi called for homosexuals to be killed, further claiming that all Muslims would want the death penalty for homosexuality. Comment: Yet another prominent Muslim calling for the murder of gays. Note also that even “secular” states must implement Sharia law.

2014, 19th Feb. Abstracted “All Africa”. Gambia: President Yahya Jammeh will: “never accept any ungodly, satanic and anti-human behaviour as a way of life or a human right… We will, therefore, not accept … homosexuals or L.G.B.T. … As far as I am concerned, L.G.B.T can only stand for Leprosy, Gonorrhoea, Bacteria and Tuberculosis; all of which are detrimental to human existence… [we] will fight them the same way we are fighting malaria-causing mosquitoes”. Comment: Islamic “tolerance” in all it’s glory and, no, I’m not being sarcastic.

On Islamic Politics.

2014, 14th Jan. Zahran Alloush, military commander of the Islamic Front in Syria (a Salafist umbrella group fighting the Assad regime): “We do not believe that democracy equals justice. This is an illusion. Muslims dream of the blessing of a life of justice under Islam. The state that we strive to establish will emerge from the will of our people, who want the Koran and the Sunna. Our nation has a great thirst for an Islamic state, in which justice prevails, as in the glorious days of the early Muslims.” Comment: “true believer” Muslims want Sharia. Any who don’t are, therefore, not proper Muslims. Note also the rejection of democracy as an “unjust” system because it does not (inherently) support Islamic supremacism.

2014, 29th Jan. Abstracted “Raymond Ibrahim”. [Alleged] Telephone recordings between ousted Egyptian president Muhammad Morsi and Muhammad Zawahiri, al-Qaeda leader Ayman Zawahiri’s brother, are becoming available. In one such alleged recording Zawahiri says “The teachings of Allah need to be applied and enforced; the secularists have stopped the Islamic sharia … All those who reject the Sharia must be executed, and all those belonging to the secular media which works to disseminate debauchery and helps deviants and Christians to violate the Sharia, must be executed.” Morsi reportedly replied: “We have taken deterrent measures to combat those … and new legislative measures to limit their media … we will shut down these media stations and launch large Islamic media outlets [including] jihadi satellite stations to urge on the jihad. There will be a channel for you and the men of al-Qaeda.” Comment: Morsi imprisoned more journalists in his year in power than Mubarak did in 30, presumably in response to Zawahiri’s urging and in line with the above. Once again we see Islamic leaders stating that any resistance to Sharia ‘merits’ death.

2014, 5th Feb. Abstracted “ABNA”. An al-Qaeda ‘peace envoy’ in Syria has blown himself up among a rival militant group, killing 16 of them including two commanders. It was the second time the envoy was sent for talks, but this time he turned into a suicide bomber. Comment: At least there won’t be anyone left there to disagree with al-Qaeda .

On the status and treatment of Muslim women.

2014, 4th Feb. Abstracted “YDM”. When Bangladeshi Imam Fazlul Haque heard about a rape allegation against a young man (19yrs old) by a thirteen year old girl in his village who had also been assaulted by her rapist’s family he leapt into action: He issued a fatwa (Islamic edict) that everyone in the village should avoid the girl and her family, since he claimed the rape charges the family was filing were false [she did not have four male witnesses to verify her account]. He also thought that she had shamed her family. Apparently Haque is cool with 13-year-old girls being raped. “The family did not disclose details of the rape to the villagers when it happened,” he said. “They lodged the case when the girl’s pregnancy reached an advanced stage, which was not possible to hide, and put the blame on [the young man].” Thankfully, local police realized Haque was a terrible person because of his fatwa. They raided the village and hauled him off in handcuffs. Comment: It’s good to see the Bangladeshi Police not accepting the orthodox Sharia position, but it’s bad news (not unexpected of course) that the local Imam rushes to protect rapists and assaulters whilst adding to the misery of their victims.

2014, 5th Jan. Abstracted “Opposing views”. Prominent Saudi Sheik Abdulla Daoud suggested that covering babies in burqas would keep them from being raped. Comment: I almost decided on a new category for this: “Stuff so SICK it’s beyond the pail – even for Islam”; then I realised …

2014, 7th Feb. Abstracted “Gulf news”. Staff at a Riyadh university barred male paramedics from entering a women’s-only campus to assist a student who had suffered a heart attack and later died. The university officials argued that the ambulance staff were males and could not enter the premises as the student was not covered [i.e. burkha’d] and that no man could be allowed into the women’s college. Comment: once again Islamic orthodoxy trumps (and destroys) human life, but of course it was only a woman. To be fair her fellow students – of both sexes – have protested volubly about this attitude. UPDATE: Abstracted “NDTV”: Sheikh Qays al-Mubarak, a member of the Saudi Council of Senior Ulema: “Women are becoming negligent in consulting doctors without a mahram (male guardian), and this is prohibited.” A medical check-up could include “a woman showing parts of her body to a doctor. This is not permissible… [Women] must seek help from a male doctor only when a female medic is not available. When this happens, they must not be alone.” Comment: And the ‘good’ Sheikh explains why Islamic orthodoxy trumps (female) human life.

2014, 13th Feb. Abstracted “Tribune”. The article details the increasing trend of marrying off girls as young as five to satisfy debts of “honour” between families in Palistan’s SWAT as Islamism takes hold once again. Tribal and religious leaders are supporting this process. Comment: Five is pushing it a bit. To follow ol’Mo’s example the girl should be six (Islamic) years old. Okay, let’s be fair here: this may be partly social convention, but note that religious leaders do not oppose it, rather they support these child/infant marriages, thus demonstrating that it is clearly acceptable (halal) in Islam (as we all know).

2014, 12th Mar. Abstracted “PakTribune”. ISLAMABAD: The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) on Tuesday ruled that Pakistani laws prohibiting marriage of underage children are un-Islamic.There is no minimum age of marriage [and] Islam does not forbid marriage of young children, the council said. Comment: yet another statement to show that child molestation / paedophilia is A-OK in Islam.

2014, 12th Mar. Abstracted “DailyNewsEgypt”. A doctor in Egypt will face trial for performing a female circumcision [FGM] operation that killed a teenage girl. The 14-year-old girl’s father who took her to the doctor for the procedure will also face trial. The operation involves the removal of the clitoris and sometimes even more extreme mutilation, which proponents argue ‘purifies’ women from sexual temptation. Although banned in 2008, female genital mutilation is still rampant in Egypt, having been carried out on up to 97% of the country’s women. Comment: What is not clear is whether the prosecution is for FGM or being such a bad doctor that the patient died.

2014, 12th Mar. Abstracted “PakTribune”. Maulana Muhammad Khan Sheerani said laws regarding second marriage of a man in the presence of the first wife were against religious principles. “Sharia allows men to have more than one wife and we demand that the government should amend the law.” The current laws require a man to have written approval from his existing wives for another marriage. Sheerani urged the government to formulate sharia-compliant laws related to nikah [and] divorce. Comment: In a really Islamic state the man would not need his wives’ permission to marry another woman, or buy sex-slaves.

On Islamic science.

2014, Jan 23rd. Abstracted “Memri”. “And the sun runs towards its stopping point. That is the determination of the All-Powerful, the All-Knowing.” (K.36:38) Saudi Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan (a member of the Saudi Council of Senior Scholars): “There is no doubt about it. The Koran says: ‘The sun runs…’ Nevertheless, they [non-Muslims] say that the sun stands in place and the Earth moves. This contradicts the Koran. Ignoring the Koran and adopting modern theories is not something a Muslim can do. A Muslim must follow the Koran.” Comment: here we see why Islamic Countries are at the bleeding edge of scientific research – oh wait, it’s the reason they are NOT.

Ordinary Muslims don’t support these views! … Do they?

(Note: I only include a few particularly egregious examples under this head even though it is ordinary Muslims who carry out most of the atrocities etc. perpetrated by Muslims.)

2014, 5th Jan. Abstracted “Asia News”. According to a Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics survey about 77% of Bangladeshi women were victims of domestic abuse within the last year with two thirds of those seeking hospital treatment for their injuries. Of those who did not seek treatment, many said it was for fear of “retaliation” (more violence) from their husbands. Comment: domestic violence is not an exclusively Muslim problem of course, but the high percentage of annual violence in Muslim societies seems to be a trend (last year I noted several parallel cases).

2014, 12th Feb. Abstracted “Ansamed”, “Sudinfo”, “Guardian” and “Muslim Issue”. At least 35% of Italian prison inmates are Muslims (including 181 imams or “spiritual leaders”), but just 4% of the general population. In Belgium the figures are 45% and ~4% respectively; in the U.K. 13.4% and ~5%; in France the figures are ~65% and ~12% respectively. Comment: It is clear that Muslims “punch above their weight” in terms of convictions, but statistics are open to multiple interpretations: at one extreme these figures could be taken as “proof” of rampant “Islamophobia”, alternatively they could be understood to show that Muslims have a lesser regard for the (kafir) law than other persons, since Islam teaches that only Sharia is a “proper” legal system. See also this report.

2014, 12th Feb. Abstracted “Memri”. In this clip from MEMRI a four-year old boy shooting an AK-47. He says that he is with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and when asked what he would like to say to the infidels, he says: “Oh infidels, we will slaughter you.” Comment: It says all you need to know that by the age of FOUR some Muslim children are already trained to slaughter “infidels” (non-Muslims).

2014 5th Feb. Abstracted “Daily Star”. Michael Adebowale (aka Mujahid Abu Hamza), the killer of British soldier Lee Rigby lunged at a consultant at the Royal London Hospital after being asked to sign a patient consent form in an attempt to blind the doctor who was treating him for a leg wound. Comment: Adebowale’s “defence” was on the grounds that he was “a soldier of Allah” attacking a military target (Lee Rigby). He now proves himself a liar (no surprise) and just another jihadist trying to rack up Kafir-kills, or at least maimings.

Not categorised or multi-category.

2014, 14th Feb. Abstracted “Malaysian Digest”. Islamist group Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (Isma) today urged Muslims nationwide to be aggressive in defending Islam: “When faced with an issue, Islam will use the appropriate wasilah (vehicle) to tackle the problem … The prophet undertook aggressive action. After the Khandaq war, he was no longer attacked, instead it was him who attacked others.” Isma said, attacking Muslims who prefer peaceful means of dispute resolution. Isma also noted that “Nobody can deny that the agenda of liberalism, religious pluralism, total equality and Christianisation were brought to this country through various approaches… linked to international Jews, Freemasons and evangelist Christians.” Comment: so much for “jihad is only defensive”; also note that according to Isma, “liberalism, pluralism and equality” had to be brought to the Country from outside, i.e. they are not inherent in Islam – funny how the truth of Islam leaks out from the mouths of Muslims!

2013, 14th Feb. Abstracted “Arutz Sheva”. Reported by AP, Gaza’s authorities have objected to the latest tranch of UNWRA school text books for “focus[ing] too heavily on “peaceful” means of conflict resolution.” Motesem al-Minawi, spokesman for the Hamas-run Education Ministry, said that the texts do not match the “ideology and philosophy” of the local population (No quibble there!). The group also objected to the books’ inclusion of the UN “Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” a document which Hamas believes violates Islamic law. Comment: Thus we see that Hamas neither respects the human rights of non-Muslims, nor believes in peace.

2014, 16th Feb. Abstracted “The Daily Star”. Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahiri has called for a jihad against those “not Muslim enough” in Bangladesh who formed an “anti-Islam secular government” after the war of independence which was fought not for “independence from Pakistan, stopping the aggression against the people of Bangladesh, or getting rid of military rule in Pakistan. None of these was the real objectives, even if these criminals took cover behind these slogans, parroted these lines, and propagated these out of their malevolence or stupidity, or due to both. None of this was the real purpose… It was to rip the Muslim Ummah apart into pieces, and lead it to death by getting it entangled in mutual strife, regional conflicts and wars. Above all, their purpose was to attack the real capital of this Ummah, and the secret of its strength: the Islamic faith.” Zawahiri called upon Bangladeshis to “confront this crusader onslaught against Islam”. Comment: there’s a lot more puerile rhetoric about how “un-Islamic” both Pakistan and Bangladesh are because Sharia is not fully implemented, but what caught my eye was that Zawahiri is, in effect, calling secular Muslims “crusaders” – thus declaring them apostates, who can be killed out-of-hand.

2014, 21st Feb. Abstracted “Arutz Sheva”. Islamist group “Islamic Law Council of Deir al-Zor” in Syria have told women to don the Islamic veil by Saturday or “face the consequences” according to Reuters News agency. Justifying it’s command to veil, the group said that: “sins are the main reason delaying victory, the legal council in the town of Deir al-Zor is obliged to promote virtue and prevent vice.” Comment: 1. But aren’t we told that the veil is a matter of choice for Muslimas? Again the truth leaks out despite the Taqiyya. 2. Here we see the problem for the “Islam is the answer” brigade: when things go badly – as they always do – then eventually they have to conclude that the heart of the “problem” is the faithlessness of the Umma; this then results in the abuse and/or murder of those deemed “not Muslim enough” and a doomed race to orthodox fundamentalism ensues.

2014, 4th Mar. Abstracted “Washington Free Beacon”. The Head of Iran’s judiciary department in the northern city of Rasht announced on Sunday that two homosexual men had been executed for “perversion.” The Iranian Judiciary also upheld the death sentence for a 34-year-old man charged with “insulting the Prophet.” State-sanctioned killings have spiked since the election of “moderate” Hassan Rouhani. Comment: what’s saddest is the murder of homosexuals and those who “insult” – i.e. say something truthful – about Mohammed is a commonplace in the delightful Darul Islam.
