Africa Jihad: Mali Falls, Black Flag of Islam Flies Over Timbuktu

AP calls the soldiers of allah “rebels”

BAMAKO, Mali (AP) — Residents said on Monday that the ominous black flag of an Islamist rebel faction is now flying over Mali’s fabled city of Timbuktu, which over the weekend became the last major government stronghold in the country’s north to fall to the rebel advance.

Tunisia: Salafists Attack

Tunisia’s Salafists attack artists and smash instruments on World Theatre Day; violence reminds many of previous attacks on women and tourists after Ben Ali’s fall in 2011

Tunisia continues to slide toward Sharia. These people were attacked on Islamic grounds. Islam forbids music, although this law is often ignored, and doesn’t think much of stage acting, either. “Salafists attack Tunisia’s stage actors,” by Yasser Seddiq for Ahram Online, March 31 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

“Take No Prisoners!”

Islamic (North) Sudan Governor to Muslim Soldiers: ‘Take no prisoners’ ‘Don’t bring them back alive. Beat them raw’

The Muselmanic North  continues to wage war against the South. You knew when the Christian South Sudan voted for freedom (secession) from the Islamic North Sudan that the Muslims would wage war against the Christians and non-Muslims in the South. As they must.  That’s Islam….  (Atlas Shrugs)

    Mali Islamists attack UNESCO holy site in Timbuktu

    Sat May 5, 2012 By Tiemoko Diallo and Adama Diarra

    BAMAKO May 5 (Reuters) – Malian fighters from the Ansar Dine Islamist group attacked and burned the tomb of one of the town’s saints, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, residents and a regional official said on Saturday.

    The militants broke off doors, windows and wooden gates from the grave and burned them, they said, in the first reported attack on a shrine in Mali.

    El Hadj Baba Haidara, an elected member of parliament from Timbuktu told Reuters some young people were discussing how to react despite being unarmed.

    “There is a risk the people may revolt because this is something that affects their dignity. This tomb is sacred, it is too difficult to bear,” Haidara said.

    Ansar Dine, along with Tuareg rebels and other armed groups, swept through northern Mali in March and April, seizing the northern half of the country and its ancient towns of Timbuktu, Gao and Kidal after the government collapsed in a March 22 coup.

    While the rebel MNLA has declared an independent state in the north, al Qaeda-linked Ansar Dine – led by veteran Tuareg leader Iyad Ag Ghaly – has rejected that idea and said the group’s objective was to impose Islamic law in Mali.

  2. All they ever do is create destruction and destroy everything outside their own peasant culture.

    They are cultural destroyers, Especially heritage of a non-Islamic past; Buddhas in Afghanistan, Museums Chechnya, Heritage sites in Timbuktu, Krak des Chevaliers, Syria, The Maya Tomb, in Egypt, The Acropolis in Greece, churches in France and Italy, etc., etc.

    Nothing they do is ever good, nor does it improve the world, for betterment in anyway.
