Dead Islamic Terrorist Brings Out Thousands of Grieving Muslims

Spencer: Detroit Muslims Mourn Terrorist Cleric

In Human Events this morning I discuss the implications of the massive outpouring of grief among Detroit Shi’ite Muslims for the jihad terrorist cleric Ayatollah Fadlallah>>>>

Detroit: Thousands Mourn Hizballah Terror Cleric

This was the scene in Lebanon …. it appears to have been replicated in ….. Michigan.

Read the obituary for Fadlullah on Hizbollah’s own al-Manar TV website!

Worst of all:

Britain’s ambassador gushes admiration for a godfather of terror

Melanie Phillips

Frances Guy is the British ambassador to Lebanon. On her blog on the website of Her Majesty’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, she wrote this about Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, head of the Shia clergy in Lebanon who died of old age a few days ago (hat tip: Elder of Ziyon):

Fawning Frances’ Fadlallah blog post has been flushed down the memory hole.

Camels were never this vicious

One of the privileges of being a diplomat is the people you meet; great and small, passionate and furious.  People in Lebanon like to ask me which politician I admire most.  It is an unfair question, obviously, and many are seeking to make a political response of their own.  I usually avoid answering by referring to those I enjoy meeting the most and those that impress me the most.  Until yesterday my preferred answer was to refer to Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, head of the Shia clergy in Lebanon and much admired leader of many Shia muslims throughout the world.  When you visited him you could be sure of a real debate, a respectful argument and you knew you would leave his presence feeling a better person.  That for me is the real effect of a true man of religion; leaving an impact on everyone he meets, no matter what their faith.  Sheikh Fadlallah passed away yesterday.  Lebanon is a lesser place the day after but his absence will be felt well beyond Lebanon’s shores.  I remember well when I was nominated ambassador to Beirut, a muslim acquaintance sought me out to tell me how lucky I was because I would get a chance to meet Sheikh Fadlallah. Truly he was right.  If I was sad to hear the news I know other peoples’ lives will be truly blighted.  The world needs more men like him willing to reach out across faiths, acknowledging the reality of the modern world and daring to confront old constraints.  May he rest in peace.

Sheikh Fadlallah was a wicked enemy of civilisation, life and liberty. He was the ‘spiritual’ leader of the genocidal terrorist organisation Hezbollah, and was classified by the US State Department as a terrorist.

As Con Coughlin wrote in the Daily Telegraph:

One of Fadlallah’s last acts before he died was to issue a fatwa authorising the use of suicide bomb attacks. The mystery here is why he waited so long. For as a founder member of Hizbollah – he sat on the organisation’s ruling council – Fadlallah gave his personal approval to the massive suicide truck bomb attacks that levelled the American Embassy and Marine compound in Beirut in 1983, killing more than 300 people, including the then CIA station chief. Fadlallah gave his personal blessing to the suicide bombers before they left for their deadly mission.

Hezbollah constitute Iran’s unofficial terror army around the world. Thousands of its rockets are pointed at Israel, against whose citizens and soldiers it has mounted countless rocket assaults, bombing and kidnap attacks. Its operatives are positioned around the world in ‘sleeper’ cells, waiting for a future signal from Iran to attack American, Jewish and other western interests.

CNN have just sacked their Middle East editor Octavia Nasr after she tweeted that she ‘respected’ Fadlallah. Idiots and moral cretins may have written up Fadlallah as ‘progressive’ or (my favourite) ‘complex’, for heaven’s sake, because he supported Muslim women’s rights and abortion. But how can Britain employ an ambassador to Lebanon who gushes her devotion to a spiritual godfather of global terror, jihad and Jew-hatred?

For good measure, here is Guy — formerly head of the Engaging with the Islamic World Department at the FCO –  blaming Israel’s behaviour as a ‘real grievance’ which helped provoke British Muslims to carry out the 2005 London tube and bus bombings (approx 43 minutes in); taking the side of the Arab and Muslim world over ‘Palestine’ against Israel; justifying HMG’s policy of talking to fanatics of the Muslim Brotherhood such as Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, who endorses the murder of Israelis and the killing of coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan; and regretting that Britain is not talking to Hamas and Hezbollah, while stating that it is ‘looking for a way to formalise’ the contact made by HMG with Hamas over the kidnapping of BBC correspondent Alan Johnson in Gaza because ‘it was recognised there were benefits to that exchange’.

Just whose side is Britain now on in the war to defend civilisation?

Robert Fisk: CNN was wrong about Ayatollah Fadlallah (Fisk admits to running errants for headbangers)

  1. Sheik, this is slightly off topic, but after having followed your link to ‘Middle East Online’ and read a few articles ranging from business to cultural news, I noticed quite a number of western writers there.

    These fellows are at the root of the oikophobia in our society. They subtly promote it, as they gauge and militate against western attempts to dislodge islamist influence. From supporting Kagan to dressing down those who attempt to expose Islamist ideology for what it is…these fellows are hell-bent to take the West to the dark side.

    Still, I urge people to read these articles on a regular basis to find out what is really going on around the world (for most of our papers have a job to keep us clueless !) from business to culture…they focus on the real stuff.

  2. Yes Steiner, I’m very much aware of it.

    Its hard to comprehend that so many in the West are sellouts and went to work for the Arabs, or for the Turks, or for whoever. You’ll be surprised how many far left loons signed on with Al Jazeera (and other propaganda networks) and how many journo’s are letting off steam against the Jews in the Arab press.

    I often check this Turkish/Islamic News Bulletin (in English) here. You might be surprised who pops up there from Jimmy Carter to Pat Buchanan, Al Gore & Clinton.

    The hateful drivel and the conspiracy fantasies are absurdly insane, but they won’t have it any other way…..
