* Paranoia, conspiracy theories and old fashioned Islamo hatred combined with stupidity against the Knights of Malta, who are now a charitable group helping out their fellow Muslims. This is how they (try to) repay the Knights for their generosity….
Rome, 6 Dec. (AKI) – A message posted on Islamist websites close to al-Qaeda is urging jihadists to carry out a terrorist attack on the embassy of the Roman Catholic Order of Malta in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
“Do not stint on your attacks, Egyptians, either with car or truck bombs,” reads the message posted on Thursday. It is accompanied by photos of the embassy building (photo) and entrance.
“These are photos of the Order of Malta embassy in Cairo. I ask Allah to have it closed down or blown up, along with those inside it, who hate Islam and Muslims,” the Internet message continued.
The message urging the jihadi attack on the Order of Malta – nowadays a charitable organisation – follows the publication of an editorial in the United Arab Emirates daily al-Bayan, by Jordanian MP Jamal Muhammad Abidat entitled ‘The Knights of Malta – more than a conspiracy’.
* The Rome-based Order of Malta, also known as The Knights of Malta began as an organisation founded in Jerusalem in 1080, to care for poor and sick pilgrims to the Holy Land.
The Order of Malta retains its claim of sovereignty under international law and has been granted permanent observer status at the United Nations. It issues its own passports, stamps and coins and has formal diplomatic relations with 99 states.
In the article, Abidat gives a Muslim interpretation of the Order’s history, describing the role played by the Knights of Malta during the Crusades. Abidat says the Order is playing the same role in the Middle East today, citing the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“The painful saga of modern Arab-Muslim history evokes the battles fought in Crusades of the 11th centry – when the Knights of Malta began their operations as a Christian militia whose mission it was to defend the land conquered by the Crusaders.”
* Poor Muslims. All 1.3 gazillion of them are sooooooooooooooo oppressed by a small, “secret” organization.
*Â My guess is there are more literates in the “Knights of Malta” than in the entire population of 1.3 billion meteorite lovers.Â
The “freeing” of Gibbons, after what has already been an ordeal, may lead to a further unseemly spectacle. For it is not unlikely, it is likely, that she will return to England, and safely home, instead of discussing her amazement at the crazed behavior of so many Sudanese, and the Sudanese government, and the supposedly “advanced” parents — it’s the Sudanese elite that sends its children to the school at which Gibbons taught — she will tell us all, possibly selling her story to the tabloids, just how well-treated she was by her Sudanese captors, how wonderful those children and the Sudanese “in general” had been. She will even add, no doubt, that if things die down a bit, she wouldn’t hesitate to return to the Sudan and take up teaching again if she were asked to do so.
.…she might even declare how grateful she was to Lord Ahmed and Lady whatshername, the two Muslims who had come to Khartoum in a noisy effort to obtain her release, hoping thereby to win points for themselves, and for Islam. If anyone thanks them for their effort — which did not succeed in its goal because the cruel and murderous Bashir, the man behind the Janjaweed, had decided, for good and sufficient reasons of his own, it will be outrageous. He freed her to insure no interruption in the extensive British and other Western aid, and to make sure that there is no Western reaction on the ground, that the Western Infidels don’t decide to seize the southern Sudan and Darfur and hold them, as I have suggested dozens of times here, until a referendum on independence can he held.
* Well, if they don’t accept any of our culture then perhaps we have to become more like them, isn’t it? Moonbat logic and multiculti- stupidity are taking their toll…
Westerners going to live and work in Sudan should pass an exam on the local culture, a Sudanese official has said.
Khalid al Mubarak, media counsellor at London’s Sudan embassy, said the orientation courses that were mandatory in the colonial era “worked very well”.
He said a two-week course could help people avoid accidental insults.
Teacher Gillian Gibbons has returned to the UK following eight days in custody in Sudan, convicted of insulting Islam after pupils named a toy bear Muhammad.
After all, it wasn’t as if the victims were Muslims. 14-19 years in prison for murdering Christians? It’s an outrage!
“...[I]f a Muslim deliberately murders another Muslim he falls under the law of retaliation and must by law be put to death by the next of kin. But if a non-Muslim who dies at the hand of a Muslim has by lifelong habit been a non-Muslim, the penalty of death is not valid. Instead the Muslim murderer must pay a fine and be punished with the lash….Since Islam regards non-Muslims as on a lower level of belief and conviction, if a Muslim kills a non-Muslim…then his punishment must not be the retaliatory death, since the faith and conviction he possesses is loftier than that of the man slain…Islam and its peoples must be above the infidels, and never permit non-Muslims to acquire lordship over them.” â€” Sultanhussein Tabandeh, A Muslim Commentary on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1970.
Three Muslim extremists have been sentenced to prison for their roles in the ambush of four Indonesian schoolgirls, three of whom were decapitated â€“ with their heads wrapped in plastic and delivered to nearby villages.
While the sentences of 14-19 years may seem light considering the horrific crime, the minister at large for Open Doors USA, a Christian ministry that has worked in the area of Indonesia where the attack happened, said it not only is a relatively severe penalty, it also is raising fears of violence as the Christmas season approaches.
Paul Estabrooks, of Open Doors USA told WND the sentences may appear light from a Western perspective. But he said in a culture dominated by Islam, it is a serious statement, and also will bring “some closure” for Christians in the region.
“The interesting thing is the timing,” he said. “The last few Christmases have been pretty violent (in the region). … There is some concern this would inflame the sectarian violence of the area again.”
* Today, Americans, Christians, Jews and other non-Muslims throughout the world are being besieged and under relentless, murderous attacks from militant Islam. People, who just want to their lives in peace, are confronted on a daily basis by the dangers of Islamic Fascism. It seems as though not a single day can pass any longer without a report on the TV news of a Mohammedan homocide bomber killing scores of innocent men, women and children — or some other form of Muslim Terrorism from the “Religion of Peace.” In face of the violence and threats we endure unceasingly from International Muslim Terrorists – we are presently duplicating the complacent pacifism of the Western Democracies to the Nazis in the 1930’s. How tragic that in response to militant Islam — we are again making the mistake made in Pre-WW II Europe of liberal appeasement to Adolph Hitler. There will be at the very least, the same horrific consequences for the West’s complacency and appeasement to Islamic Fascism now, as there was to Nazism then. We are potentially, at this moment in history, on the verge and brink of an International Holocaust that will make the death, destruction and carnage of World War II pale in comparison!
“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Philosopher George Santayana (1863-1952)
“Islam is a revolutionary faith that comes to destroy any government made by man. Islam does not look for a nation to be in better condition than another nation. Islam does not care about the land or or who owns the land. The goal of Islam is to rule the entire world and submit all of mankind to the faith of Islam. Any nation or power that gets in the way of that goal, islam will fight and destroy. In order to fulfill that goal , Islam can use every power available every way it can be used to bring worldwide revolution. This is jihad.”
