Misunderstanders of Jihad Roundup

Shock horror! There is backlash happening:

Jihad in Russia: Muslims planning attacks on Christmas services killed by security forces

What are peaceful Muslims in the West doing to disabuse Muslims like these of the idea that killing non-Muslims is a good and meritorious act? Why, nothing. “Russia kills militants suspected of Christmas attack plan,” from Reuters, January 6 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Jihad in Iraq: Muslims forget that jihad is making friends across the aisle, slit throat of Christian teacher

So many misunderstanders of jihad, and Hamas-linked CAIR is only talking to the easily foolable kuffar, with their new ad campaign whitewashing jihad:

“My Jihad is to stay fit despite my busy schedule. What’s yours?”

“My Jihad is to build friendships across the aisle. What’s yours?”

“My Jihad is to not judge people by their cover. What’s yours?”

Shdha Elias tragically ran into some misunderstanders of jihad, whose jihad was to cut her throat.

Jihad in Iraq: Jihad car bomb murders Christian university student

The jihadis meant the bomb to hurry the kids off to school, but what can you do? Collateral damage is sometimes unavoidable. “More Christian blood in Mosul, car bomb kills Christian university student,” from AsiaNews, January 8 (thanks to JW):

But don’t worry: war is over if you want it!

Obama senior lawyer says “military pursuit of al-Qaida” should end soon

Overconfidence of Baghdad Bob proportions, or  capitulation attempting to disguise itself as a victory?

Jihad: Afghan soldier fails to realize that jihad means not judging people by their cover, murders British “ally”

Hamas-linked CAIR’s #MyJihad campaign assures us that jihad is benign, even chummy:

“My Jihad is to stay fit despite my busy schedule. What’s yours?”

“My Jihad is to build friendships across the aisle. What’s yours?”

“My Jihad is to not judge people by their cover. What’s yours?”

So many misunderstanders!

Jihad in Egypt: Jihadist plot to attack church with explosives and weapons foiled

As Coptic Christians celebrate Christmas, some Muslims in Rafah remind them of what jihad means. “Egypt army foils bid to attack Coptic church,” from AFP, January 7 (thanks to JW):

Jihad in Afghanistan: Two Muslims fail to realize that jihad is just getting up early to take the kids to school, murder five by blowing themselves up

More misunderstanders of jihad. Yet the true understanders thereof still direct their efforts against “Islamophobes” rather than against those among their coreligionists who fail to grasp that the true meaning of jihad is just taking the kids to school.

Jihad in Pakistan: Muslim mob fires on Christians celebrating Christmas

We’re only hearing about this now because “the news of this attack on Christians on Christmas Day was intentionally blocked by media and administration of capital city Islamabad.”

The ICC has a more recent account here, noting again that the attackers have gone unpunished. “Muslim mob attacked Christian worshipers on Christmas Day in Islamabad,” from the Pakistan Christian Post, December 29, 2012:

Pakistan: December 29, 2012. (PCP) When President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari and Chairman ruling Pakistan Peoples Party PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari were cutting Christmas cake presented by National Harmony Minister a Pakistani Catholic Dr. Paul Bhatti and photo session was being enjoyed by Archbishop of Karachi Bishop Joseph Coutts and Karachi Diocese Bishop of Church of Pakistan Sadiq Daniel in Karachi on December 25, 2012, a Muslim mob equipped with lethal weapons was firing at innocent Christian worshipers who were coming out of different Churches in Iqbal Town of capital city of Pakistan Islamabad.It was 12:00 noon, in Iqbal Town in Islamabad, on December 25, 2012, when Christian worshipers were coming out of different Churches after performing Christmas prayers, more than one hundred Muslim extremists equipped with automatic rifles, pistols and sticks attacked the Christian women, children and men.

Ashraf Masih, when running to save his life was hit with bullet in his leg, Iqbal Masih received bullet injuries in his leg and arm, Shahzad Masih was injured fell on ground and was beaten with sticks mercilessly by mob, Yousaf Masih was seriously injured while more than one dozen Christian women, men and children received injuries.

The area police of Shahzad Town Police Station arrived on scene to maintain law and order and arrested only two Muslims named Mohammad Khalid and Mohammad Riasat Satti and sent injured Christians for medico-legal in hospital.

The case under Section 452, 109, 324,148,149 PPC was registered in First Information Report FIR number 669/2012, in Shahzad Town PS against 35 unknown and 4 nominated Muslim attackers but police released one nominated arrested accused Mohammad Riasat Satti same evening of December 25, 2012.

The tension was high all over Pakistan and special security arrangements were adopted by government after a religious decree of one Muslim cleric against celebrations of Christmas and participation of Muslims in it.

A religious decree (Islamic Fatwa) issued on Facebook by one Muslim cleric Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer as “We should be tolerant towards people of other religions but we cannot participate in religious ceremonies and events of non-Muslims. Christmas is religious event of Christians and according to their theology Jesus was son of Allah born to Allah on this particular day so we need to avoid this event and should not greet them. Muslims can eat their food and are allowed to marry chaste women of Christians but Christmas cannot be celebrated by Muslims because it is against the concept of monotheism in Islam”

The National Harmony Minister Dr. Paul Bhatti and State Minister Akram Gill were also busy in photo shoots with high ranking officials and Shahzad Town Police Station officials were not arresting Muslim attackers but twisting incident in communal riots.

Mr. Basharat Khokhar, a human right activist, based in Islamabad was first to reach Iqbal Town today to negotiate with administration to remove blockades from areas of Christian residents who were under siege from Christmas day and running out of food supplies and milk for children on fear of safety and security of life from further attacks of Muslim mob.

Pakistan Christian Post contacted DSP Arshad Ali Khokhar and SHO Fiaz Ahmad Ranjha of Shahzad Police Station for information on not arresting Muslim accused in FIR but none was available to respond.

The news of this attack on Christians on Christmas Day was intentionally blocked by media and administration of capital city Islamabad.
