Thailand has a special place among a number of South-East Asian countries, threatened by the spread of the jihadist movement, where for over a half-century, separatists and radical Islamists represent a threat to its security, acting under the slogan of creating an independent Islamic state of Patani on the border areas with Malaysia. This small Islamic sultanate, which has existed for over 500 years, became a part of the Kingdom of Siam in the beginning of the 20th century. But its Malay Muslim descendants make up 85% of the inhabitants of this region of Thailand, which has not come to terms with its loss of independence, maintaining hope and faith in its revival, and provoking continuous conflict with the Thai government, which maintains 60,000 soldiers in the area;oneperevery30residents. This,however,willnotstopjihad,notedAbuImad,leaderoftheseparatistorganization (Patani United Liberation Organization – PULO), created at the end of the 1960s.
This needs to be corrected. It cannot be determined that 85% of the inhabitants of this region are Malay Muslims. The author is taking the Islamic spin as the truth, which is false. (SY)
CLUELESS IN SWEDEN: FOREIGN MINISTER WALLSTRÖM IN SHOCK HER CRITICISM OF SHARIA IN SAUDI ARABIA LINKED TO ISLAM…
Evidently, Sweden’s Foreign Minister was unaware that that by criticizing Islamic sharia customs, such as flogging a blogger a thousand times and the ill-treatment of women, she was, in fact, seen as turning against Islam itself.
Hey moonbat, Islam is sharia and sharia is Islam!
The prominent Dutch Islam expert, Professor Johannes “Hans” J.G. Jansen — author of an influential biography of Muhammad — said he does not think Margot Wallström knows what she has gotten herself into.
Foreign Minister Margot Wallström, after meeting with representatives from the business sector of the Ministry of Industry where they discussed the consequences of the Saudi authorities have decided not to issue new visas to Swedish businessmen.
This is a big deal. They have no idea about what they’ve (Sweden) gotten themselves into, nor of what they’ve been involved with for decades, and still they plow ahead. You could almost wish for the penny to drop and the light to come on. This shows you just how clueless these people are about Islam, and the ramifications of importing hundreds of thousands of people into her country who are as outraged over her (correct) comments about Saudi rule of law (sharia based) as the 7th century Saudis are. And we in the Counterjihad are regularly impugned for supposedly not understanding Islam.
Sweden’s Foreign Minister Reviled as an Enemy of the Prophet
by Ingrid Carlqvist and Lars Hedegaard
The Swedish government’s ignorance was amply demonstrated when Gatestone called Margot Wallström’s press spokesman, Erik Boman.
Gatestone asked if he was aware that practices such as the death penalty for blasphemy, flogging and barring women from driving a car are based on the Koran. He said he was not. Nor, he said, had he heard of the 1990 Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, which states that all human rights must be based solely on sharia law, and rejects human rights as expressed in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Veronica Nordlund, from the Swedish Foreign Ministry’s press service, told Gatestone that she has heard of the Cairo Declaration, but thinks that Saudi Arabia has signed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Saudi Arabia did not, in fact, sign the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It abstained, claiming the Declaration violated sharia law. 
All in all, there appears to be a genuine but concerning lack of knowledge in the Swedish government about Islam and Islamic affairs.
There is nothing, however, to indicate that Margot Wallström and other members of the Swedish government and political establishment have been driven by fear. They have no knowledge of what orthodox Islam is all about and evidently believe that the religion is benevolent and peaceful, but unfortunately hijacked or misinterpreted by evil men.
‘Very large numbers of Americans — soldiers and civilians, including every conceivable kind of aid worker — have been in Afghanistan since 2001. The American government has built schools, hospitals, roads. It has lavished money on all kinds of projects. It has fought the Taliban, and gotten rid of Al-Qaeda. It rescued the Hazara from extermination, by those Uber-Sunni Taliban. It has put in place elections. Afghans living in America have gone back to help, as they saw it, to revive their country.
But Afghanistan remains in thrall to Islam, primitive Islam, Islam in a country that is full of violence and aggression.
You can see the violence, the aggression, the superstition, the fanatical desire to “protect Islam” by beating, and then burning to death, a woman who, apparently, was mentally defective (but what if she hadn’t been? What if she had burned a Qur’an? Would her murder then be justified?). This happened not in some remote rural area — though such things happen there, out of the sight of cameras and reporters, all the time — but in the middle of the capital, Kabul. And there were armed police, according to eye-witnesses, standing right there, doing nothing to stop what these maddened Musilms were doing as they ran amok.
Is what Afghanistan needs really a “democracy” where the primitives certainly outnumber the handful of advanced secularists? No. What Afghanistan needs is not a crazed crook and depressive, like Karzai, but an enlightened despot who understands that Islam needs to be tied down, constrained, so that enough people can be raised up who live not in the fanatical Muslim world, but in something like the world of the non-Muslim West. Yet the American government, run apparently by people who believe that “democracy” is the highest good always and everywhere, no matter what the conditions of men, or of their lands, probably because they never sufficiently studied the history of democracy, of the places where, over slow time, it developed. How many Americans, for example, now study the history of English law, or the early history of American law? Perhaps Elizabeth Warren’s husband, Bruce Mann, might be persuaded to offer a llittle course, for the Democrats at least, on what it was in the history of the West, and especially of England and then of America, that created the conditions that make “democracy” make sense. In Afghanistan, it doesn’t — any more than it did in Turkey in 1922, or in Tunisia in 1954.
Muslims consider the annual parade of Moors and Christians “, a popular tradition in Spain, “an offense” and “a provocation” of Islam.
This has been going on for a long time. The Spanish must not be allowed to celebrate their victory over the Moors, because that could make Muslims feel bad. The filthy kafirs must not be seen enjoying a reenactment of Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand giving the soldiers of allah their ‘hasta la vista’ after 700 years of Islamic occupation. That would be deeply offensive to Muselmaniacs, that really hurts their feelings. For that reason, they’re pulling all the strings and all the grievances in their arsenal. The text of the article is almost identical to a posting from Oct 2011 on the Islam vs Europe blogand many other articles before that:
The leaders of Islamic associations in Spain have demanded that the festivals traditionally held there to celebrate the reconquest of the country from the Muslim invaders be suppressed because they are offensive to Muslims.
These celebrations are known as the Fiestas de Moros y Cristianos (Festivals of Moors and Christians). More than a hundred are held in Spain in different localities. Some last for days and feature elaborate and colourful re-enactments of battles.
The president of the Federación Española de Entidades Religiosas Islámicas (FEERI) [Spanish Federation of Islamic Religious Assocations] and the imam of Malaga mosque said the festivals should be discontinued because of the image they give of Muslims, saying the celebrations “have no place in a democratic Spain”.
The imam asked what the reaction would be in some towns if celebrations of the arrival of Franco’s troops were held and “the resulting punishment inflicted on the population”. In the interests of “good convivencia, they need to disappear”, he said.
The president of FEERI said:
“In a democratic Spain, where all religious faiths are represented, these celebrations of conquest must disappear. Like any other representation of islamophobia or racism, it must be eliminated.”
He claimed that some of the festivals included offensive acts against Mohammed. This refers to Valencia where some festivals dramatise the recapture of a castle by a band of Christians followed by the destruction of a 3-metre effigy of Mohammed using firecrackers. Some elements of these festivals have already been suppressed.
The director of the Islamic Commission of Spain said:
And here comes the threats, or else:
“We will never justify violent acts but there is a need to show restraint and take into account what the prophet Mohammed means to us. This cannot be taken lightly because it could result in elements of discord.”
…a judicial building has become the target of a sack, carried out in due form. It took place at the Administrative Tribunal of Toulouse, where four floors of magistrates’ and clerks’ offices were literally vandalized, apparently during the weekend of March 8-9.
Monday morning (March 9) around 6:30 a.m., the firemen were called in because of water damage. They were stunned. The building was flooded. Clearly, during the night, all the faucets in the building were deliberately left on. The water flowed for hours, destroying floors and false ceilings…
But the worst was yet to come: files were scattered, some torn apart, photocopiers turned upside down, offices broken into… and above all, on the four floors in the form of graffiti painted with spray paint appeared the same inscriptions: “The prophet will judge you” and “Warning”. The name of a Muslim magistrate was even written on the walls.

US removes Iran and Hezbollah from list of terror threats
An annual security report submitted recently to the US Senate by James Clapper, director of National Intelligence, removed both Iran and Hezbollah from the list of terrorism threats to the United States for the first time in years.
The unclassified version of the “Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Communities” dated 26 February, noted Iran’s efforts to fight “Sunni extremists”, including elements affiliated with the Islamic State group who were perceived to constitute the “preeminent terrorist threat to American interests worldwide”.
Last year’s report described the global terrorist activity of Lebanon’s Shia Hezbollah group to have increased in recent years to “a level we have not seen since the 1990s”, however this year’s report mentioned the group only once saying it faces a threat from ISIS and Al-Nusra Front near Lebanon’s orders.
Suicide bombers targeted two mosques used mainly by the Houthis and their supporters in the Yemeni capital on Friday, killing 137 people and wounding 345 others, the rebel-owned television channel said, in the latest report on casualties … (thanks to Mullah, pbuh)
In Yemen, It’s Friday, So There’s Lots Of Mayhem And Murder
The main mayhem has been the bombing at a Shi’a mosque, killing more than 120, and wounding 200. That’s where Houthis, including some of the Houthi leaders, would have gone for Friday Prayers. Oh yes, and there was also an attempt to bomb, from a plane, the former leader Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who had fled from Sana’a to the south, to find refuge, so he thought, among the Adeni separatists. And then there was also the killing of a famous journalist, Abdel Karim al-Khaiwani, who “was gunned down by men on a motorcycle as he came out of his home, the journalist’s son said.”
Or was that on Thursday or even possibly Wednesday? In Yemen, you don’t have to wait for Friday Prayers to kill; any day of the week will do.
