Make no mistake: this is not just an expression of piety. It is a political statement, a statement of Islamic supremacism, and of the will to wage war until Islamic Sharia is imposed over the whole world. “President: Rule of Islam only way for salvation of mankind,” from the Islamic Republic News Agency via Jihad Watch
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Tuesday that rule of Islam on mankind is the only way for salvation of human beings.
“There is no truth on earth but monotheism and following tenets of Islam and there is no way for salvation of mankind but rule of Islam over mankind,” said Ahmadinejad in a meeting with Afghan Sunni and Shiite ulama at Iranian Embassy in Kabul.
President Ahmadinejad said nations are today distancing themselves from culture of materialism and selfishness and look for a new way for their prosperity, that is the path of Islam.
He said that the world is on verge of a great upheaval and ulama at this juncture shoulder a heavy responsibility that is introducing genuine Islam as it is.
“Nations today have no haven but religion,” the Iranian president announced, cautioning Muslim nations against enemies’ divisive plots.
He said, “All of us have the duty to resist the enemy by closing our ranks.”
He said that the Iranian nation today feels more than ever the need to stand beside the Afghan nation.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has kindly received their Afghan brothers and will continue to do so in future. Minor issues will cannot affect Iran’s policies on Afghanistan,” he added.
The president said Islam belongs to all generations and Muslims should get ready for global mission of Islam.
* Imagine GWB would call for all Christian nations to unite against Islam, how the commies would howl and whine! Looks like Hitler was rather harmless compared with the ‘Ummah’
Truck bombs: 175 Iraqis slaughtered
The RoP claims ‘resistance’- to what exactly?
At least 175 people have been slaughtered and more than 200 wounded when four suicide truck bombs targeted people from an ancient religious sect in northern Iraq.
The attacks were carried out in two villages of the northern province of Nineveh and targeted the minority Yazidi community and between them amounted to one of the bloodiest single incidents of the four-year-old war.
Both Iraqi army spokesman Captain Mohammed al-Obeidi and Dakhil Qassim Hassun, the mayor of the municipality of Sinjar, said the four blasts left at least 175 people killed and more than 200 wounded.
The bombs, one of which was on a fuel tanker, exploded in the villages of Al-Khataniyah and Al-Adnaniyah which are mainly inhabited by Yazidis.
Yazidis – who number some 500,000 – speak a dialect of Kurdish but follow a pre-Islamic religion and have their own cultural traditions.
