Abudlhadi Hairan

phpthumb_generated_thumbnail.jpeg

Qalat: A man named Mumtaz in southern Zabul province of Afghanistan first shaved wife, Nazia’s head and then cut off her ears, and nose and damaged her teeth on the first day of Eid ul Adha, an Islamic ritual of sacrifice.

Hospital sources in Qalat, center of Zabul, told this scribe by phone that Nazia, 17, was admitted on Wednesday (First day of Eid) evening and now she was in a critical condition due to the severe beating she has borne.

Provincial Police Chief of Zabul, Gen. Mohammad Yaqub Khan, when contacted, confirmed this brutal incident and confessed that the police were still unable to arrest the man.

The police are searching for him, he has disappeared’ Khan added.

Moreover, he told that a brother of the culprit was police officer who is currently under investigation.

Egypt’s Copt’s attacked. Again.

Because the jihad must continue until the world is Islamic.

* Bukhari: Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been victorious with terror!”


* Koran: “I shall terrorize the infidels. So wound their bodies and incapacitate them!”


Tabari: The battle cry was: “Kill! Kill! Kill!”

* Koran: “Wipe the infidels out to the last.“

* Koran: “Fight and kill disbelievers wherever you find them. Take them captive, harass them and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”


* Koran: “Fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam.”


* Ishaq: “We are pledging ourselves to wage war against all mankind.”

* Quran 8:59: “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them. They are your enemy and Allah’s enemy.”

* As we can see from the above, fighting, terrorizing, harassing and attacking the infidels is not something that a ‘tiny minority of extremists’ or ‘misunderstanders of Islam’ have invented, but jihad-terror is at the very heart of the Islamic teachings. There are literally hundreds of verses that teach how to hate, kill, harass and attack unbelievers in order to get them to submit to Islam, and that’s what a good Muslim is obliged to do.

Once again: Egypt’s Christian Copt’s are the victims of Islamic Terror

16866.jpg

As the Copts of the Upper Egyptian town of Esna, north of Luxor, celebrated the traditional Kiyahk Midnight Praise on the eve of Sunday 16 December, the church of the holy Virgin, where a large congregation had gathered for worship, was attacked with stones and rocks. Kiyahk is the month which precedes Christmas and its Midnight Praise is a widely popular service distinguished by its characteristic tunes and melodies which are sung all through the night and conclude with Holy Mass at dawn. The attack on the church resulted in no casualties, but the mob which had initiated the attack fanned out on motorcycles in the streets of Esna attacking, torching, and plundering shops owned by Copts. The shops were closed since it was past nine o’clock in the evening, so the damage was limited to property and merchandise; the owners and workers had already left. The usual Muslim jihadi slogans of “There is no god but Allah” and “On to jihad” filled the Upper Egyptian cold night air. The rampage continued till the wee hours of dawn.

UK: No more ‘War on Terror’ and no more ‘Islamic Terrorists’

* Thanks to Weasel Zippers

* Because saying such things might inflame the tender sensitivities of RoP members who might then engage in Islamic terrorism. Ooops, did I say something wrong?

The words “war on terror” will no longer be used by the British government to describe attacks on the public, the country’s chief prosecutor said Dec. 27.
Sir Ken Macdonald said terrorist fanatics were not soldiers fighting a war but simply members of an aimless “death cult.”

The Director of Public Prosecutions said: ‘We resist the language of warfare, and I think the government has moved on this. It no longer uses this sort of language.”

78londonterrorism.jpg

London is not a battlefield, he said.

“The people who were murdered on July 7 were not the victims of war. The men who killed them were not soldiers,” Macdonald said. “They were fantasists, narcissists, murderers and criminals and need to be responded to in that way.”

His remarks signal a change in emphasis across Whitehall, where the “war on terror” language has officially been ditched.

Officials were concerned it could act as a recruiting tool for Al Qaeda, which is determined to manufacture a battle between Islam and the West.

* Unfortunatily for these deluded fools, Islam doesn’t need Al Qaeda or a ‘manufactured battle’ between dar al harb and dar al Islam: Islam is at war with the world since 1400 years. Denying it and coloring it with pink lipstick will not help the terrified dhimmi-Brits.

*
The term “Islamic terrorist” will also no longer be used. Officials believe it is unhelpful because it appears to directly link the religion to terrorist atrocities.

* An ‘Islamic terrorist’ is a ‘good Muslim. Read the scriptures, fools!

In an interview with BBC Radio’s World at One, Macdonald made a fresh attack on plans to extend beyond 28 days the length of time a terror suspect can be held without trial.

He said that the evidence had shown that the existing limit was working well and he accused ministers of legislating on the basis of ‘hypotheticals’.


What say you?

Bin Laden pissed off with Al Jizz

2007_12_27t190552_450×335_us_qaeda_binladen_tape.jpg

DUBAI (Reuters) – An Islamist Web site said on Friday it would carry a new recording from al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden about “foiling plots” in Iraq.

“May God expose the cover-up by Al Jazeera, the channel of the infidels,” said the Web site, which is often used to issue messages from al Qaeda.

It was not clear whether this meant bin Laden would speak about a controversy in which his supporters have accused the popular news channel of misrepresenting his comments on Iraq.

Some Islamists have said Al Jazeera misrepresented bin Laden’s views by airing excerpts of comments he made in October that insurgents had made mistakes in Iraq because of fanaticism.

‘Allah signed his name to the Tsunami ‘

2005011011075510-tsunamisign.jpg

by Bryan Pearson

Colombo – God signed His name in the tsunami that battered Sri Lanka and other countries on December 26, and sent it as punishment because humans have been ignoring His laws, Sri Lankan Muslims say.

Proof, according to Mohamed Faizeen, manager of the Centre for Islamic Studies in Colombo, is a satellite picture taken seconds after the tsunami smashed into Sri Lanka’s west coast near the town of Kalutara and as it was receding.

“This clearly spells out the name ‘Allah’ in Arabic,” Faizeen said, pointing to the shape of the waves – a gigantic “E” complete with whorls and sidewaves that do indeed appear to combine to resemble the Arabic script for the name “Allah”.

Damage control: Iran’s Jews to march at mullah’s orders

iran-loves-the-jews-702461.bmp

Iran’s regime uses the Jews again for publicity damage control

Hat tip: John Spades 

Following yesterday’s dramatic news of 40 Jews immigrating to Israel from Iran, the Iranian government has again marched out the leaders of the Jewish community in the country to do their public relations damage control. Maurice Motamed, the only Jewish member of the Iranian parliament and Ciamak Morsathegh, who heads the Tehran Jewish Committee were both out in full force chatting with CNN , and other western media news outlets trying to portray the lives of Jews in Iran as “safe” and supposedly free from Anti-semitism. In an effort to combat the negative publicity about the Iranian government generated yesterday and make Iran sound like the “garden of Eden” for Jews, both Motamed and Morsathegh were almost parroting the same words Iran’s fundamentalist Islamic leaders have been saying recently about the country’s 20,000 Jews:


“We are one of the oldest communities in Iran. We are free to practice our religion. Anti-Semitism is a Western phenomenon but Jews have never been in danger in Iran. We are Iranian Jews and are proud of our nationality. No amount of money can encourage us to give up Iran. Our nationality is not up for sale,” Morsathegh said.


The hope of the mullahs who hold the true power in Iran is to reverse the bad press they have been getting as anti-Semitic jihadists. Undoubtedly news of 40 Jew leaving Iran in a covert mission is embarrassing to the regime who is trying to curry favor with European countries whom they want to trade with. What better way to combat any anti-Semitic rhetoric Iran’s President spews than to march out the countries Jews and have them say “great things” about the regime! You may wonder why the Jewish community leaders in Iran are so willing to praise the regime that is holding them hostage. The answer is simple…duress! They say whatever their captors tell them to say or else all Jews in Iran will suffer unknown persecution. For this reason, comments made by Motamed and other Jews in Iran lack all credibility.

Church Bells and the Islamic Call to Prayer

Church bells go silent in Gaza

* While a Palestinian priest (one of those “Islamo-Christians’) spouts dhimmi absurdities — saying, as dhimmis have always said, that the Muslims are wonderful, and the Christians identify with them — the reality suggests otherwise. “Christmas under Hamas rule,” by Katya Adler for BBC News (thanks to Mark Durie):

* The patriarch called on the Hamas government to take responsibility and to protect the Christian citizens of Gaza, along with everyone else.

As the crowded church was belting out hallelujahs, I stepped into the church courtyard for some fresh air.

muezzin1.jpeg

The Muslim call to prayer was beginning to echo from the myriad of mosques all around.

I thought how this reflected the situation in Gaza in Christmas 2007 – that while the muezzin were on loudspeaker, the church bells here are played from a cassette tape.

A nervous young nun adjusted the volume – loud enough to peel through the church but not to penetrate its walls – it might risk offending Muslim Gazans passing by.

*

Mark Durie sums it up:

I was reminded by this story of the text of the 7th century “Pact of Umar”, in which Chrisitans, when surrendering to Islam, agreed to silence their bells: “We shall use only [wooden] clappers in our churches very softly.”

*
The prohibition on ringing bells was one of the universal restrictions imposed by Islamic law upon ‘dhimmis’ – non-Muslims living under Islam after conquest. The bells of Middle Eastern Christians fell silent for more than a thousand years, until the European Powers dismantled the dhimmi system during the 19th and 20th centuries. Now the age-old discriminatory laws are being enforced again, and Hamas is proving as good as its word, for when it took power in Gaza the local Christians were told that as they were now in a full Islamic system they ‘must accept Islamic law’. The silence of the bells bears witness that Hamas has told the truth about its intentions.

* Dhimmi Christians in denial:

The silence is bad enough, but what distressed me most about Adler’s report was her claim – paradoxically in the very same article – that “There is no evidence to suggest the Hamas government here officially discriminates against Christians…”

This Christmas season Gazan Christians are being resubjected to the odious, humiliating discriminations of the dhimmi system. This makes Christmas a very good time for the rest of the world to wake up and pay attention to the stark historical reality of dhimmi Christians’ lives under Islamic rule, and to the intolerable reimposition of these conditions in many Muslim societies in the present day.

* That’s what its all about, isn’t it, Muslims?

UK: Monstrous mosques & powerful loudspeakers:

* Oxford ‘outraged’ over plans to blast the Islamic call to prayer 3 times a day.

* Sure when they built this hideous mosque the Muslims promised the locals that they would ‘never’ use loudspeakers to blast the ‘Allahu akbar’ over the neighborhood, but now its time to take it one step further, who could possibly object to that? You Islamophobe, you!

and LYNSEY HAYWOOD

MUSLIM leaders have sparked outrage with plans to broadcast the Islamic call to prayer over the roof-tops of one of Britain’s most historic cities.


Elders at Oxford Central Mosque want to blast it out three times a day.

* How’s that for being ‘moderate?’ Give ’em time, let them prepare the ground! Later on they can get their 5 prayers , even at 4 in the morning…

They have already discussed the controversial idea with council chiefs and are set to submit a formal application in the New Year.

But the move has been met with fury by people living near the mosque in Oxford – known as the city of dreaming spires.

They claim the two-minute call – to be broadcast over three large speakers – is noise pollution and offensive to other faiths.

Dr Allan Chapman said: “This has nothing to do with the Muslim faith. If this is allowed to go ahead it will be intrusive and distasteful.

“People will have no choice but to have this message rammed down their throats. My fear is that it will lead to anger and resentment.

“The area does not have a huge population of Muslims and this is grossly unfair on everyone else.”

* Well, that can be changed. Wait and see….

Lies & Denial from the Muslims:

* Spokesman Sadar Rana said yesterday: “In Islamic countries Christian people are allowed to ring bells in churches as a call to prayer and we never have arguments with that.

* A statement that is a false as Sadar Rana’s ‘religion’…

“We are part of the United Kingdom and because of that we feel that we should be allowed to keep with tradition.

Leo McKinstry is shaking fuckwit clerics out of their tree:

CARDINAL’S SERMON ON IMMIGRATION SHOWS HIS STAGGERING IGNORANCE

29519_1.jpg

Immigrants know the benefits of the UK

“Church bells are drowned out by the wailing from mosques”

WITH dreary predictability, our two leading Christian clerics have each used their Christmas messages this year to mouth fashionable political orthodoxies.

*
The Anglican Church used to be described as the Tory Party at prayer. Today, it is Labour on its knees. In his sermon yesterday the Archbishop of Canter bury, like an earnest Left-wing activist, prattled on about the threat to the environment from “humanity’s selfishness”, warning how our “greed” could “distort the balance of things”.

His opposite number in the Catholic Church, the Arch bishop of Westminster Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor, was even more politically correct. In his address at midnight mass he attacked Britain’s supposed failure to embrace immigration. Urging that we do more to welcome migrants, he moaned that too many arrivals “feel excluded simply because they are outsiders”.

Only someone completely divorced from reality could come up with such bilge. If Britain is really such an inhospitable place for immigrants, why are millions of them flocking here?
Church bells are drowned out by the wailing from mosques.

The fact is that no country in the Western world makes life easier for migrants, giving them benefits, housing, jobs and support and even encouraging them to cling on to their cultures rather than adopt a new British identity. 

That is precisely why the hundreds of young men at the new Sangette camp near Calais are so desperate to cross the Channel.

One Muslim at the camp, Hawar Said from Iraq, ex plained last week why he was so keen to reach England. “I will get a passport, money, a flat. It is a dream for me.” He has shown a far greater understanding of how the system really works than the Cardinal.

Indeed, the Catholic Arch bishop’s words are a travesty of the truth. The people really made to feel unwelcome in modern Britain are those who dare to question the destruction of our country through mass immigration. 

They find themselves accused of racism or intolerance because they object to their jobs being taken, their wages cut, their heritage traduced and their taxes spent on welfare for foreigners.

If the Cardinal wants a cause worth supporting, it is his own religion, not the import of yet more alien culture into Britain.

Read it all. McKinstry makes sense…

No more Bhutto

Bhutto ‘killed in blast’

Hat tip Mullah

* She got away a few times, but not this time. The RoP is very persistent when it comes to assassinations:

image.jpeg

Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto has been killed in a gun and bomb attack after a rally in the city of Rawalpindi, her party said.

“She has been martyred,” party official Rehman Malik said.

bhutto_homicide_bomber.jpg

Ms Bhutto, 54, died in hospital in Rawalpindi. Ary-One Television said she had been shot in the head.

Police said a suicide bomber fired shots at Ms Bhutto as she was leaving the rally venue in a park before blowing himself up.

“The man first fired at Bhutto’s vehicle. She ducked and then he blew himself up,” police officer Mohammad Shahid said.

Police said 16 people had been killed in the blast. Earlier, party officials said Ms Bhutto was safe.

A Reuters witness said he saw about eight bodies on a road.

An Interior Ministry spokesman said initial reports suggested it was a suicide bombing and more than 10 people had been killed.

A suicide bomber killed nearly 150 people in an attack on Ms Bhutto on October 18 as she paraded through the southern city of Karachi after returning home from eight years in self-imposed exile.

Earlier, gunmen opened fire on supporters of another former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, from an office of the party that supports President Pervez Musharraf, killing four Sharif supporters, police said.

The Islamo-swine are jubilant:

Death of Bhutto: A day of joy

Today was like a day of ‘eid (celebration) for Muslims all over the world, especially for those who understand the meaning of al-kufru bit-tawaagheet (disbelieving in and rejecting false deities).

Today we heard one of the tawaagheet of this earth perish, after she continually declared war on Islam and Muslims, and openly condemned Islamic schools and the ulamaa’ (scholars), pledging to support those who have waged war on Allah (SWT) and His Deen (religion).

Verily, this news entered happiness into the hearts of all sincere Muslims. But sadly there are some ignorant people who mourn her death.

Comment from SpiritOf1683

This exposes Pakistan in all its glory. A failed state, which back in 1954 was on a par with Taiwan. Look where we are 54 years on. Taiwan is a wealthy and progressive Westernised country, whilst Pakistan is a semiliterate Islamic craphole with open sewers, a 30% literacy rate, overrun with savages who’ll do this sort of thing with no regrets – and much more worryingly – armed with nukes. And why? You’ve guessed: Islam!

Those who can plan and do this sort of thing to Benazir Bhutto wouldn’t baulk at eliminating 6 million Israelis, 7 million Londoners, 17 million New Yorkers, or Calcutta’s 18 million residents if they had the chance. Lets be in no doubt as to what gets taught in the madrassahs. The pro-Jihad press in Pakistan wanted this to happen just as the pro-Nazi press in Germany wanted the Reichstag to go up in flames. But Bhutto’s killers represent something far worse and much darker than Nazism or Communism. They represent the new wannabe order in Pakistan, then the world. The repercussions of this atrocity will reverberate right across the Muslim world. Islamic Intolerance is on the march, yet intellectually paralysed by 40 years of political correctness, we dare not call a spade a spade. We dare not expose Islam for what it is, lest we get accused of racism. We dare not tell the families of victims of Islamic atrocities about the commands to murder non-Muslims in the texts of the Koran, Sira and hadith, nor the rewards of 72 virgins promised for these murderous acts. Any attempts to tell the truth on far too many messageboards leads to these truthtelling posts being removed.

Here in the West, we have far too many stupid leaders who still cling to the asinine belief that Islam is a religion of peace, contrary to the evidence of 14 centuries of ravenous bloodletting and suffering on an epic scale, when in full technicolor, it is a religion of murder, bloodlust, savagery, sadism, extreme cruelty, misogyny, infidel-hatred, viciously antisemitic, anti-progressive, destructive, wishes to destroy all pleasure, slags us off as immoral whilst at the same time elevating mass murderers to martyrdom.

* Guess that nails it!

Netherlands: Geert Wilders ‘politician of the year’

Anti-Islamic outsider is top Dutch politician

By Michael Steen in Amsterdam
geert-wilders.jpg

Geert Wilders, who compares the Koran to Mein Kampf, has been named the Netherlands’ politician of the year in a poll run by public broadcaster NOS.

Mr Wilders’ pithy and shocking soundbites – he warned of a “tsunami of Islamisation” – have dominated headlines, while his parliamentary outbursts have brought an adversarial style of politics to the muted consensus to which the Dutch are attuned.

His latest project, a short film about the Koran that will be released next month, has stirred anger even before much is known about it. Mr Wilders, who has had round-the-clock protection for three years due to the death threats against him, says the film will illustrate how the Koran inspires people “to do the worst things”.

* Creeps: why don’t you want to know?

He has called for the Koran to be banned. “With this film I’m trying to show not only in words but also images exactly what I mean,” he says.

Mindful of the backlash provoked by the publication in Danish newspapers in 2005 of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad, government ministers have expressed concern but said there is not much they can do. Some public figures outside parliament have called for a movement against Mr Wilders.

* Transalation: cowardly leftist scum who ride on the Muhammedan ticket want Wilders silenced, therefore they are shitting themselves over a guy who has balls…

*
The murders in 2002 of Pim Fortuyn, a pioneer of Dutch anti-immigration and anti-Islam politics, and in 2005 of Theo van Gogh, the director of a film critical of Islam, have pushed immigration and the failure to integrate large Muslim communities to the top of the Dutch political agenda.

Mr Wilders’ proposed solutions are deeply radical: stop all Muslim immigration, ban the building of mosques and ask the 1m Muslims among the Dutch population of 16m to “go to their own countries” or give up their religion.

* Since when is self-preservation ‘radical?’

*
He remains a highly controversial outsider and – many Dutch Muslims and non-Muslims alike would rather not discuss him. But his Party for Freedom, the PVV, won nine of 150 seats in parliament in the last election and it regularly polls above that level.

Mr Wilders has spent a career in public service and sat as an MP for the mainstream Liberal party, the VVD, for five years before breaking away in 2004. He has always demonstrated a feel for the popular mood. He was among those who campaigned for the surprise Dutch No vote against the European constitution in 2005. “Wilders knows his way around the parliament and he’s good at the work,” says Luuk van Middelaar, the Dutch political philosopher who worked alongside him as a political adviser to the Liberal party.

That is perhaps one advantage Mr Wilders has over politicians such as Christoph Blocher, who was ejected from Switzerland’s government this month, or parties such as the far-right Vlaams Belang in Belgium, subject to a long-standing “cordon sanitaire” by the other parties.

The NOS poll naming him politician of the year combined votes from the public and those of the parliamentary press corps. Mr Wilders, who denies being racist, usually says the press is biased against him.

* Once again: repeat after me: Islam is not a race, Islam is a political ideology, Islam is a totalitarian doctrine that wants you conquered, dead or forcibly converted…

The film project prompted Doekle Terpstra, a former trades unionist, to call for the movement against Mr Wilders. “It is time to send a powerful signal to all the Muslims in our country,” Mr Terpstra wrote. “The sound of Wilders is not the sound of the Netherlands.”

*

* We shall see, Mr Terpstra. We shall see. Perhaps the sound of squeaking traitors like you running the gauntlet is more pleasing to your ears?

An Ambassador Warns: The Suicide of Europe

From the desk of Tiberge

An analysis from Christian Lambert, a former French ambassador, writing at Les 4 Vérités, predicts a terrible fate for Europe. He titles his essay, “The Inexorable Suicide of Europe.”

The Brussels administration admits officially that each year some 550,000 immigrants from Africa, the Middle East and China, plus South America, enter the European Union. In reality the figure is twice that, in other words, more than a million.

 Hizb ut-Tahrir youth in campaign against Geert Wilders 

* Here we go: clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, stuck in the middle with a bunch of politically correct wankers…

* Socialist union blockheads want to suck his blood and the Muhammedan assassins from Hizb ut-Tahrir are already sharpening their knives to saw his head off, not a very envyable position to be in, but Wilders is determined:

The Dutch Hizb ut-Tahrir youth have come out with a new campaign, against the slander of Islam. The campaign is carried out by passing out pamphlets, which are available online in English, Dutch, Arabic and Turkish, titled “Defending the holy Koran is an Islamic obligation”. The pamphlets are apparently directed at Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who is expected to come out in January with a movie about the Koran.

In the name of Allah, the merciful:

Defending the holy Quran is an Islamic Obligation.

* Of course it is. So is murder in the name of Allah… 

Jews escape from Iran (with nothing)

* The pattern jihad continues:

Iranian Jews find new homes in Israel

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Greeted by joyous relatives and a crowd of reporters, about 40 Iranian Jews landed in Israel on Tuesday, leaving behind their lives in the Islamic republic for new homes in the Jewish state.

artisraeliranap.jpg

Iranian Jews, who didn’t want to be identified, arrive at Ben Gurion airport near Tel Aviv, Israel, on Tuesday.

*

Family members screamed in delight and threw candy at the newcomers as they emerged into the airport reception hall after a long bureaucratic procedure. No details about their route of exit from Iran were given.

“I feel so good,” said Yosef, 16. He and his brother Michael arrived with their parents and a sister and were greeted by their grandparents, who went to Israel six years ago.

“I just saw all of my family. You can’t put that into words,” Yosef said. The brothers declined to give their family name to protect relatives still in Iran.
The new arrivals were sponsored by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, a charity that funnels millions of dollars from evangelical donors each year.

Its founder, Rabbi Yehiel Eckstein, said by telephone from Chicago, Illinois, that each immigrant received $10,000 because they left behind all their possessions and “start in Israel with nothing,” although many said at the airport that they were joining family already here.

Evangelical backers of Israel say they are following a biblical prophecy that the creation of a Jewish state here is a step toward the Messianic Age. Some Israeli critics saying their ultimate goal is to convert Jews to Christianity, which the evangelicals deny.

Michael, 15, said he told all his friends where he was going, and they wanted to come along.

“I was scared in Iran as a Jew,” he said.

No comment was available Tuesday from the Iranian government.

Iran’s Jewish community of about 25,000 people is protected by the country’s constitution and remains the largest in the Muslim Middle East. Synagogues, Jewish schools and stores operate openly in the capital, but Jews also report discrimination and increasing concerns about hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s hostility toward Israel.

About 200 Iranian Jews arrived in Israel this year, more than any other year since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, said Michael Jankelowitz, spokesman for the quasi-governmental Jewish Agency, which deals with immigration.

Benjamin Yakobi, 16, has lived in Israel seven years. As he waited for his cousin, he said Israel is safer than Iran.

“Here we are all Jewish, and we are not worried that someone will do something,” he said.

“I’m in heaven,” gushed Avraham Dayan, 63, as he waited for his son, daughter-in-law and grandson to arrive. He said he had not seen his 38-year-old son in 11 years, missing his son’s wedding and the birth of his grandson.

Fear of reprisals:

Meir Javedanfar, an Israeli analyst whose family emigrated from Iran in the 1980s, said Jews are generally free to practice their religion inside Iran, but are increasingly concerned about the intensity of attacks on Israel by the Iranian press, which they view as bordering on is rabid anti-Semitism, he said.

But Eckstein warned that the situation facing Iranian Jews is critical because of the attitude of Ahmadinejad, who has repeatedly called for the disappearance of Israel. (he actually wants “to wipe Israel off the map”) Despite a recent U.S. intelligence report that found Iran has stopped its nuclear weapons program, Israel believes Iran is still trying to build a nuclear bomb.

By the time they realize it’s not going to blow over, it’ll be too late,” Eckstein said. “All it needs is a U.S. or Israeli strike against Iran’s nuclear program for them to come down strong on the local Jewish population.”

Snake Oil Salesman Tariq Ramadan: “Muslim studies too political”

Canada.com

* A long winded, steaming pile of taqiyya. What Ramadan really wants is more Muhammedan clerics teaching Islam in Western universities.

* Islam is, first and foremost, a political system. A totalitarian political system that uses brainwashing to produce hundreds of thousands, millions of fanatical zombies who seek ‘martyrdom in the way of Allah’- from Bangladesh to Iran, from Egypt to Pakistan and from Indonesia to wherever the soldiers of Allah were allowed to settle behind enemy lines.

* All the more reason for snake-oil salesman Tariq Ramadan, grandson of Hassan al Banna and professional agit-prop for Muhammedan causes, to ‘teach’ and travel the Western world (the US is currently off limits because Tariq is a terrorist supporter) and to tell unsuspecting university students about all those ‘great Islamic contributions to humanity‘-. For Ramadan the blood cult of Islam is all good, in fact better than Western civilization, he would like us to have more of it, and for that he works tirelessly…

‘Focus is security, not theology’-, sez Frere Tariq

*

A pervasive bias exists in the way Islam is studied in the West, says a prominent Muslim thinker, who is calling for sweeping changes in how Islamic studies are taught in universities.

Tariq Ramadan, a visiting professor at Oxford University and one of Europe’s leading intellectuals on Islam, argues that despite a growing interest in the field, the scholarly pursuit of Islam is driven not by an interest in theology, but by fear and an obsession with the struggle against terrorism.

In the latest issue of the Canadian journal Academic Matters, Mr. Ramadan chastises universities for their “carefully orchestrated infatuation” with Islamic studies and calls for a less politicized approach to the field.

He says the current academic focus on terrorism and the struggle against radical movements is simplistic, reducing the richness of Islamic theology into political ideology.

“The study of religious thought proper (of the theology, of its premises, its internal complexities and its development) has been relegated to a subsidiary position,” he writes.

“Universities in the West must seek the kind of knowledge of other civilizations and cultures — particularly that of Islam — that is driven neither by ideological agendas nor collective fears.”

What’s “cruelly lacking,” Mr. Ramadan argues, is an objective study of Islamic law, legal scholars and philosophers, as well as “an historical and critical approach to Islamic history and thought.”

* Agreed. If politically correct Western dhimmi’s would really teach what Islam is all about the students would run away horrified…

Since much of that literature is in Arabic or Urdu, scholars who want a deeper understanding of the Muslim world must master those languages, says Mr. Ramadan.

He goes on to criticize western scholars for ignoring the body of “fresh, compelling, audacious critical thought” emerging from contemporary Muslim societies, which are often eclipsed by controversies surrounding Shariah law or the role of women.

“There is a deep-down, deliberate process of evolution under way in every Islamic society in the world,” writes Mr. Ramadan.

* Right. Unfortunately for Ramadan that kind of bullshit is being debunked daily by the defenders of the faith who believe that the Koran is ‘immutable’ and the sharia must rule every corner of the world.

“Far from rushing to conclusions, far from populist, ideological speech, the academic world must take this process seriously, study it, and present its outlines and implications.”

Mr. Ramadan lashes out at what he perceives to be a double standard in western universities that assumes religious studies professors who practise other faiths can objectively teach and do research in their field,
while academics who practise Islam cannot.

* So that’s what it is all about? Only ‘real Muslims’ can teach teach Islam? Because infidels are not qualified to teach the ‘proper Islam’ and might not proselytize enough to increase the numbers of Muslims in the West?

A Frightening Question: When Are We Going To Stop Fucking Around?

moors1.jpg

The Islamofascists may have us backed into a corner even though we have not yet begun to fight them. But, that is not the half of it. Commenter DP111 asks a question which may cause your hair to fall out:

… let us look at the nature of the threat. The existential threat hanging over us is not the terrorist one but the demographic one. All Muslims have to do now is to let time takes its course. How do we counter this threat, while all Muslims have to do is to be liberal, democratic, tolerant etc, and wait till the numbers alone dictate the implementation of shari’a in Western countries. How do we fight now when the only option left is to be undemocratic and illiberal.

Maimonides and the “Meshugga” Prophet

Andrew Bostom has a blog, congratulations!

* Here he takes on an egregious example from a genre of loaded comparisons, this one made by Amartya Sen, the Nobel laureate economist, in his recent book Identity and Violence. Sen has the temerity to proclaim, “…the Jewish Philosopher Maimonides was forced to emigrate from an intolerant Europe in the twelfth century, he found a tolerant refuge in the Arab world.”

* Bullshit on stilts!

Sen’s ahistorical drivel aside, Maimonides (b. 1135, in Cordova) was but thirteen years old (in 1148) when Muslim Cordova fell into the hands of the particularly fanatical Berber Muslim Almohads, who invaded the Iberian peninsula from North Africa. Maimonides and all the dhimmi Jews in Cordova were compelled to choose between Islam and exile. Choosing the latter course, Maimonides and his family for twelve years subsequently led a nomadic life, wandering across Spain. By 1160 they crossed the Mediterranean, and settled at Fez, Morocco (also under Almohad control) where, unknown to the authorities, they hoped to pass as Muslims, while living as crypto-Jews. Maimonides’ dual life, however, became increasingly dangerous as his reputation was steadily growing, and the authorities began to inquire into the religious disposition of this highly gifted young man. He was even charged by an informer with the crime of having relapsed (apostasized) from Islam, and, but for the intercession of the poet and theologian Abu al-‘Arab al Mu’ishah, a Muslim friend, he would have suffered the fate of his colleague Judah ibn Shoshan, who had shortly before been executed on a similar charge. Given these precarious circumstances, Maimonides’ family left Fez, embarking in 1165 to Acre, then to Jerusalem, and on to Fostat (Cairo), where they settled, living once again as dhimmis, albeit under more tolerant Fatimid rule.

islcen-mohammed-small.jpg

The jihad depredations of the Almohads (1130-1232) wreaked enormous destruction on both the Jewish and Christian populations in Spain and North Africa. A contemporary Judeo-Arabic account by Solomon Cohen (which comports with Arab historian Ibn Baydhaq’s sequence of events), from January 1148 C.E, described the Muslim Almohad conquests in North Africa, and Spain, as follows:

*
Abd al-Mumin…the leader of the Almohads after the death of Muhammad Ibn Tumart the Mahdi …captured Tlemcen [in the Maghreb] and killed all those who were in it, including the Jews, except those who embraced Islam…[In Sijilmasa] One hundred and fifty persons were killed for clinging to their [Jewish] faith…All the cities in the Almoravid [dynastic rulers of North Africa and Spain prior to the Almohads] state were conquered by the Almohads. One hundred thousand persons were killed in Fez on that occasion, and 120,000 in Marrakesh. The Jews in all [Maghreb] localities [conquered]…groaned under the heavy yoke of the Almohads; many had been killed, many others converted; none were able to appear in public as Jews…Large areas between Seville and Tortosa [in Spain] had likewise fallen into Almohad hands.

Moses Maimonides was a great many things, but he certainly was not a soldier of Allah, even though Muslims would make believe that he was. He wasn’t.

Neither did Muslims invent the wheel, aeronautics, arts or medicine or anything useful: Islam produces nothing, Islam stifles mental growth and if you don’t believe it go to any Muslim country and see it for yourself.

Mosque signals Muslims’ return to Spain

And Al Bebeeceera is jubilant:

It is more than 500 years since the Spanish reconquered the Iberian peninsula, killing or expelling every confessed Muslim who could be found and conclusively ending 800 years of Islamic rule.
But on Thursday, a muezzin is calling Spanish Muslims to prayer at the first mosque to be opened in Granada since the reconquista, the culmination of a 22-year-old project that has been plagued by controversy.

_39260735_minaret2-203.jpg

* Planners were forced to rethink the height of the minaret

For those who built the Great Mosque of Granada, which looks out onto the once highly symbolic Alhambra Palace, its inauguration – attended by a string of Muslim and non-Muslim dignitaries – heralds a new dawn for the faith in Europe.

“The mosque is a symbol of a return to Islam among the Spanish people and among indigenous Europeans that will break with the malicious concept of Islam as a foreign and immigrant religion in Europe,” says Abdel Haqq Salaberria, a spokesman for the mosque and convert to Islam.

“It will act as a focal point for the Islamic revival in Europe.”

It is precisely this which has caused some discomfort among the local population, but it appears that the mosque’s insistence on harmonious co-existence has gone some way towards calming fears.

“Cultural contribution”

At a time when the Islamic faith is viewed with some suspicion within Europe, Spanish Muslims are hoping to remind the continent of the vast cultural and intellectual contribution made by the Moors, to “art and architecture, astronomy, music, medicine, science, and learning.”

* This kind of mental flatulence is endemic at the beep, where the green-red-brown convergence of progressives kowtows to Muhammedan infil-traitors who call the shots.

“It will act as a focal point for the Islamic revival in Europe “

Abdel Haqq Salaberria

* For sure. Another Trojan horse behind enemy lines…

Their rule is also seen by some historians  Islamic apologists as an example of religious tolerance in medieval Europe.

* The myth of Islamic tolerance perpetuated by the BBC…

The Moorish period in southern Spain saw Muslims and Jews living side-by-side. The city of Cordoba became a cultural centre for both faiths, while universities sprang up in cities across Andalucia. Trade and industry also flourished.

The new mosque intends to offer a series of courses on subjects such as education, law and medicine, as well as Arabic language classes, and is planning on issuing its own degree in science to European Muslims.

The mosque and its extensive gardens will also be open to the public.

It will serve as a spiritual home to 500 Spanish Muslims, the majority of whom have converted to the faith in the course of the last 30 years.

Struggle

It has taken a long time to get this far.

The land on which the mosque has been built was bought 22 years ago, but city authorities continually objected to the planning proposals.

When it was finally accepted that the land could be used for religious purposes, objections were raised to the layout of the building.
Planners had to rethink the height and design of the building’s minaret.

But opposition to the scheme, which received financial backing from Libya, the United Arab Emirates and Morocco, gradually subsided.

The mayor, a member of Spain’s ruling right-wing party, will attend Thursday’s inauguration.

The king of Spain was also offered an invitation.

But “prior engagements” meant he was unable to accept.

TheBigOldDog:

The Qur’an presupposes that the true text of the Bible is available in Muhammad’s day: see 2:40-42, 126, 136, and 285; 3:3, 71, and 93; 4:47 and 136; 5:47-51, 69, and 71-72; 6:91; 10:37 and 94; 21:7; 29:45-46; 35:31; and 46:11.

However, it also says that the “transgressors” — who are clearly Jews from the context, since it is talking about Moses etc. — “changed the word from that which had been given them” (2:59).

Also: “Then woe to those who write the Book with their own hands, and then say: ‘This is from Allah,’ to traffic with it for miserable price!- Woe to them for what their hands do write, and for the gain they make thereby” (2:79).

“And remember Allah took a covenant from the People of the Book, to make it known and clear to mankind, and not to hide it; but they threw it away behind their backs, and purchased with it some miserable gain! And vile was the bargain they made!” (3:187)

This goes for Christians as well as Jews:

“But because of their breach of their covenant, We cursed them, and made their hearts grow hard; they change the words from their (right) places and forget a good part of the message that was sent them, nor wilt thou cease to find them- barring a few – ever bent on (new) deceits: but forgive them, and overlook (their misdeeds): for Allah loveth those who are kind. From those, too, who call themselves Christians, We did take a covenant, but they forgot a good part of the message that was sent them: so we estranged them, with enmity and hatred between the one and the other, to the day of judgment. And soon will Allah show them what it is they have done.” (5:13-14)

On those verses rests the Islamic idea that the Jewish and Christian Scriptures have been corrupted, as well as the assertions that the earlier prophets were Muslim (3:67, etc.).

‘Isa’- the Muslim Jesus

* Today we increasingly hear and read that Christianity and Islam ‘share’ Jesus, that he belongs to both religions.So also with Abraham: there is talk of the West’s ‘Abrahamic civilization’ where once people spoke of ‘Judeo-Christian civilization’. This shift of thinking reflects the growing influence of Islam.

islam-jesus-is-the-slave.jpg

* But “Isa’-, Muhammad’s perverted Jesus, has nothing in common with the Jesus of the Christians:

‘Isa’ Will Abolish Christianity


‘Muslims believe Jesus will come back, break the cross and lead the war against the kaffirs’-

There’s more: Jesus will come back, break the cross, kill the swine and abolish the jiziyah.

The swine, that’s us folks, just in case you’re wondering.

The killing of the swine is so that the “Christian belief of its lawfulness is belied.” The reason for abolishing the jizyah tax (the compulsory poll-tax that non-Muslims must pay in order to live in a Muslim land) is based on the idea that when Jesus returns, the jizyah tax will no longer be accepted. The only choice that Christians will have is to accept Islam or die.

* Here’s a summary:

Let’s review the various defining characteristics and actions of the Muslim Jesus upon his return to the earth:

1. Jesus is said to return to the earth in the last-days near a mosque in Damascus.

2. He will arrive at a time when the Mahdi and his army will be preparing to pray.

3. He will be offered to lead the prayer by the Mahdi, but will decline in direct deference to the Mahdi who Jesus declares to be the leader of the Muslims.

4. He will then pray behind the Mahdi as a subordinate.

5. He will be a faithful Muslim


6. He will make pilgrimage to Mecca.


7. He will visit Muhammad’s grave, and salute Muhammad, whereby Muhammad will return the salute from the grave.

8. He will destroy Christianity.

9. He will repeal the jizyah tax thus causing the only option for Jews and Christians to convert to Islam or die.


10. He will establish Islamic Shari’ah (Law) throughout the entire earth.


11. He will kill the Antichrist and his followers made up largely of Jews and women.

12. He will remain on the earth for roughly forty years, during which time he will marry, have children and then die.

As we have clearly seen, the Muslim Jesus, in both his nature and actions is far different than the biblical Jesus. Rather than coming to reign as King and Messiah over all the earth from Jerusalem, Jesus instead comes to convert the world to Islam or kill those who refuse to do so. Instead of coming to save and deliver faithful Christians and Jews, he comes instead to kill and slaughter them.

Read it all:

the official organ of the Jami’at al-‘Ulama of Delhi, al-Jam’iyya, dated 20th Nov. 1932, wrote in reply to certain Christian missionaries:

“The person whom the Christians erroneously take for the Messiah was really the enemy of the Messiah and he has nothing to do with Islam and the Quran. Nor does any Muslim believe in him.”

‘Isa, the Muslim Jesus

Now read from Surah 5: 72-75.

72. They do blaspheme who say: “(Allah) is Christ the son of Mary.” But said Christ: “O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.” Whoever joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrongdoers be no one to help.

*
73. They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from the word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them.

*
74. Why turn they not to Allah, and seek His forgiveness? For Allah is Oftforgiving, Most Merciful.

*
75. Christ the son of Mary was no more than an apostle; many were the apostles that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how Allah doth make His signs clear to them; yet see in what ways they are deluded away from the truth!

Again we can read in the Hadith that they say Jesus was not God but just man and will judge Christians who believe differently. -Hadith 4:657

Allah is the Best of Deceivers.” Jesus of Nazareth is an historical personage. Issa of the Qur’an is an ahistorical fiction. The mother of the Islamic Jesus is Mary–Maryam, the Miriam of our Old Testament (Tanakh, if you will), who is the sister of Moses and Aaron! Eighteen Centuries between Moses and Jesus are juxtaposed! That, and a host of other anachronisms and revisions–RIDICULOUS!!

* Indeed. But the difference between us and them is that they kill and die for this shit. And we live in denial!

* No, Yusuf: we have nothing in common.

Anyhow: Lets celebrate diversity:

Muslim patrols to ‘protect’ churches in Mindanao

In the predominantly Muslim island of Mindanao in the southern Philippines ordinary citizens have started nightly patrols in the streets around churches to allow Catholics to celebrate “dawn masses” until Christmas.

Zamboanga (AsiaNews) – On the first Sunday of Advent patrols made up of Muslim volunteers began a nightly watch to protect churches in the predominantly Muslim island of Mindanao in the southern Philippines. Grateful to these young people who are providing “help and protection” during the Christmas period residents near these Christian places of worship are offering them food and drink.

As part of this muftis from Basilan, Lanao Sur, Maguindanao, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi provinces have issued fatwas or Islamic edicts to remind the faithful that terrorism is prohibited and that Muhammad himself guaranteed Christians protection and freedom of worship.

* Hmm. Not exactly. Can you smell the coffee already?

“I have promised them (Christian residents) equal protection, and I asked Muslims and Christians here to uphold mutual respect on matters of religious belief,” said Sukarno Utto, village chief in Shariff Kabunsuan in Maguindanao city. “For this reason we have joined the local police in nightly patrols, especially during the Simbang Gabi (dawn masses),” a Filipino tradition that goes back centuries in which mass begins every day at 4 pm in every church till Christmas Day.

* Did they pay the jiziyah?

Government authorities and the police have expressed “satisfaction” for the decision taken by Muslim civilians.

According to the local city police chief, Superintendent Willy Dangane, this initiative must be praised. “It is especially useful because if the police does all it can, it still needs real help from citizens if we want to maintain peace and stability.”

Heavy security in Indonesia for Christmas

laskarjihad.jpg

JAKARTA (Reuters) – More than 17,000 police and soldiers have been deployed in the Indonesian capital to guard against a repeat of Christmas Eve attacks seven years ago, when Christian churches in the mainly Muslim nation were bombed.

There had been no intelligence reports of a possible attack by Islamic militants but police were taking no chances, Jakarta police spokesman Ketut Untung Yoga Ana said on Monday.

“We are anticipating any eventualities even though there are no indications of an attack,” he said.

Police will check churchgoers’ bags in some locations, another police officer said.

The coordinated bombings targeting churches on Christmas Eve in 2000 left 18 people dead nationwide.

The bombings and a series of other attacks that followed have been blamed on members of the Southeast Asian regional militant group Jemaah Islamiah.

Jakarta’s police chief, Adang Firman, said extra security would be provided to bigger churches.

“The threat of terror is always present,” he told Elshinta radio.

Volunteer groups, including members of Islamic mass organisations, will help police to ensure peaceful Christmas celebrations, said the Jakarta police spokesman.

The youth wing of the Nahdlatul Ulama, the largest Islamic organisation in the world’s most populous Muslim country, is deploying 15,000 members nationwide to guard Churches and other venues used by Christians during Christmas.

“We do this every year. We live in a diverse nation and we respect differences,” the youth wing’s chairman, Syaifullah Yusuf, was quoted as saying on the group’s Web site.

Around 10 percent of Indonesia’s 220 million people are Christian. Muslims make up about 85 percent of the population and while the vast majority are moderates, there is an active militant minority.

Police have arrested hundreds of militants linked to JI since the 2002 Bali bombings in which more than 200 people were killed.

There has not been a major attack since three suicide bombers blew themselves up in Bali in October, 2005, killing at least 20 people. But police and some analysts say Indonesia still faces a considerable threat from Islamic militants.
