Where Would We Be Without Islamic Inventions?

1,001 inventions mark Islam’s role in science

New English Review

This is a jolly little puff piece which is not typical of the Scotsman, however the comments are worthy of note.
The account of Khalid’s discovery (of coffee, or coffee eating goats) is just one of a glittering treasury of untold tales from a golden age of discovery and innovation, which took place in the Islamic world between the seventh and 17th centuries.

It is this hidden history that a new exhibition aims to unveil. Entitled 1,001 Inventions, the exhibition opens at Glasgow Science Centre later this month and charts the innovations of exceptional scholars, and ordinary people, from the Islamic world who discovered and developed many items that are taken for granted today. The exhibits are divided into seven zones: home, hospital, market, school, town, universe and world.

Professor Salim Al-Hassani, chairman of the Foundation for Science Technology and Civilisation, creators of 1,001 Inventions, said there is a widespread misconception that science and technology withered during the “Dark Ages”.
“The 1,001 Inventions exhibition aims, through a process of education and learning, to challenge this myth and celebrate the fact that Muslim civilisation was flourishing and contributed to the advancement of our society today,” he said.

Religion of Inventions


The comments:-

* Didn’t they also invent the process where they convince their uneducated children to blow themselves up so as to kill and main innocent people?

* Any news of any inventions made in the last 300 years?

* We write with Roman letters but use Arabic numerals so the influence extends to something as basic as 1,2,3″ And they pinched the idea from India.

* Most of this stuff attributed to Muslim scientists is just a rehash of stuff they got from the Greeks.

* Eratosthenes who died in 194BC not only knew the earth was spherical but measured its circumference-which puts him 13 centuries ahead of al-Idrisi.

* Al-Battani popularised trigonometry did he? Obviously he then knew the work of Pythagoras , a Greek who died around 500 BC.

* Number theory was greatly advanced by the ‘discovery’ of the number zero. A concept which the Muslims stole from the Hindus when they dropped in to ravage and rob India.


* This is a nice try at a puff piece but you’ll have to do better than this.

So we owe the muslim’s for civilization?

Let’s see: stealing, reprinting and renaming, acquiring without permission and claiming invention, etc. A wonderful culture… current behavior bombs for children and woman, beheading girls for going to school, yes a peaceful, loving culture, interested in human advancement. May history return them to where they came from…MRD

* Muslims are particularly zealous in their steady exaggeration of supposedly Muslim inventions and advancements. The Hindu “zero” which was transmitted to the Islamic world, just as paper-making (see Dard Hunter) came to Damascus from China, has long been claimed for the Arabs and Islam. Similarly, the most famous Arabic-using mathematician, the polymath Al-Khwarizmi, is put forth as some kind of representative for Islam, when his own history suggests a lone and unorthodox wolf, in the tradition of al-Rhazi.

My own thought it that once one has thrown out all those who, though they are known by their Arabic names, were in fact Christians or Jews, and once one has determined that the Muslim figures who remain were only one or two or at most three generations away from their non-Muslim ancestors, one begins to suspect that “Islamic” science disappeared because the non-Muslims ceased to be an important part of the population, had been sufficiently reduced in numbers or otherwise marginalized so that the spirit of Islam — a spirit most inimical to free and skeptical inquiry about everything, including what Newton and other scientists in Christendom saw as the laws of Nature that could be determined, for God himself had set the clockwork mechanism in motion, and Man could determine the laws according to which that mechanism functioned, while in Islam, Allah obeys no laws, but is whimsical, does just what he likes, and submissive man must be a slave to Allah, and question nothing, wonder quizzically about nothing, investigate nothing, for Allah knows best. People raised to believe that kind of thing, existing in societies where everyone believes or must pretend to believe that kind of thing, may manage to engage in that bastard-child of science called weapons technology, but that is acceptable because those weapons will help Islam to overcome the Infidels What is inadmissible is for Muslims to study the nature of DNA, or subatomic particles. Some born into Islam may do so — but in so doing, they are showing that they are not true Believers.

* Even if one were to concede Islam’s “past glory days and contributions” to Western civilization, how do they in the same breath explain the failure of so many Islamic states today? How can it be that the West benefit so much from Islam and yet simultaneously Islam not benefit from itself? Blaming colonialism only highlights Islam’s inability and impotence to deal with adversity (something all Muslims would be loathe to admit of their “perfect” religion).

Religion of Peace hits bombs Philippine Shopping Mall (again)

Associated Press Writer

MANILA, Philippines — A powerful explosion ripped through three floors of a shopping mall in the heart of Manila’s financial district Friday, killing eight people, injuring scores and sending police and troops on the highest state of alert.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said “circumstances indicate it is highly probable that it was caused by an explosive device.” The same mall was targeted by a bombing in 2000.

National Security Adviser Norberto Gonzales said authorities were looking into a possible terrorist attack, but “there is no conclusive evidence yet.”

Mario Em, a taxi driver, said he had just dropped two women off at the mall when the blast hurled the passengers against his vehicle, killing them instantly.

At least eight people were killed and more than 70 were injured, said metropolitan Manila police chief Geary Barias.


Britain’s enormous problem

Britain’s Conservative Muslim Forum has issued a report on UK “security,” and if you hadn’t been following the news from the UK, you might not believe what it says: Muslim Tories: ‘Iran has right to nuclear arms’.

* With thanks to LGF

A body set up by David Cameron to advise the Conservatives on Muslim issues has criticised the Government’s relationship with Israel and concluded that Iran has “legitimate” reasons for wanting nuclear weapons.


The Conservative Muslim Forum also wants the compulsory history curriculum in schools changed to give “full recognition to the massive contribution that Islam has made to the development of Western civilisation”.

* Islam’s contribution to humanity, in sum: Slavery, death, torture, murder, misogyny, intolerance, bigotry, hypocrisy, persecution of homosexuals, of religious minorities, of women; child rape, massive conquest through warfare; deceit, genocide…

* The roll call of Muslim heroes is a roll call of mass murderers: Muhammad, Saladin, Arafat, bin Laden, Zawahiri, Zarqawi, etc.

* If the vote was available to Muslim lands, Osama bin Laden would be elected president in every single Muslim nation on earth.


It also argues that preachers who advocate a rejection of democracy and its institutions should not be denied entry into Britain.

The report says: “Regardless of whether one finds Israel a congenial country or not, on any objective assessment of the type of unqualified support given to Israel by the current government it is not conducive to British national interests as this could damage Britain’s relationships with 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, including those in Britain.”

It concludes that passage with: “In all our dealings with Israel, we must remember the plight of the displaced Palestinians.”

The group calls on the party to be more sympathetic towards Iran. It says: “Given Iran’s position in the Middle East, facing a nuclear-armed Israel, Iran appears to have legitimate reasons for seeking nuclear weapons for defensive purposes.”

The full report is here (PDF), and it’s even worse than the Telegraph’s summary. Clearly, support for extremism reaches the highest levels of the UK Muslim community; this group is chaired by Lord Mohamed Sheikh, given a peerage in 2005 by Michael Howard.

Qaradawi calls on Muslim Brotherhood to Embrace Jihad in Case of U.S. Attack on Iran

By Douglas Farah

Yousef Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the international Muslim Brotherhood, is reprising his role as mediator between the Sunni and Shi’ite groups. This time he is calling on all Muslims to defend Iran in case of a U.S. attack.


Qaradawi’s interview with Islamonline Radio last week highlights the sheikh’s role-and the role of the Muslim Brotherhood-in trying to bring about unity of the Muslim umma, regardless of one’s affiliation.

“It is obligatory on all Muslims to resist any possible attack the US might launch against Iran,” Qaradawi said. “Iran is a Muslim country which all Muslims should defend while the US is an enemy of Islam that has already declared war on Islam under the disguise of war on terrorism and provides Israel with unlimited support.”

In the past, the Ikhwan collaborated closely with the regime of Ayatollah Khommeini, according to the accounts of Yousef Nada and other Brotherhood leaders. There was a falling out, but the Brotherhood has consistently maintained that the Sunni-Shi’ite differences are “minor” issues that should not interfere with the larger strategy of restoring the caliphate.

“Peace” Train Going Off Track

By P. David Hornik

Condoleezza Rice is here again this week, this time shuttling from Jerusalem to Ramallah to Cairo in her obsessive chase after a chimera of formal peace between a tired democracy whose paramount yearning is that its sons should no longer have to be soldiers, and Muslims who regard this Jewish democracy’s existence as an affront to their deepest values and even to God Allah.

The Jerusalem Post, which regularly pronounces itself in favor of a “two-state solution,” noted in an editorial Tuesday that “While Palestinian leaders have repeatedly claimed to recognize Israel’s right to exist, they have never uttered the words ‘Jewish state.’”

In other words, since 1992 Israel, heavily urged on by the United States, has been pursuing a purported peace process with leaders—whether the openly brutal Yasser Arafat or the sedate, nicely dressed Mahmoud Abbas—who cannot bring themselves to utter that phrase.

A decade and a half ago, the pronouncement of “right to exist” without “Jewish state” was enough for Israel to set up, finance, and arm a Palestinian entity on land impinging on its population centers. Since then that entity has murdered over 1500 Israelis, mostly civilians, in terror attacks while injuring and traumatizing many thousands more—including, at this moment, the ongoing battery and traumatization of the Gaza-bordering town of Sderot with its twenty thousand residents.

Some Israelis, though, would still be willing to attribute great significance to the pronouncement of “Jewish state” by an almost-powerless leader without first requiring a transformation of Palestinian society from values of Jew-hatred and Israel-negation to values of peace and pluralism. As the Post puts it:

If, however, Abbas is willing to formally recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, and to abandon the demand for the demographic influx [of “refugees”] that would negate it, the path to substantive progress would be opened.

But even with all this dangling before him, Abbas still doesn’t take the bait. During Rice’s press conference with him in Ramallah on Monday, Rice “urged Israel and the Palestinians to agree on how and when to start formal peace talks.” Abbas, though, “responded by saying Israel would have to make concessions in order to do so.”

In other words—first concessions, then peace talks.

As for the concessions Abbas demanded—without yet having said “Jewish state”—they reportedly include

the withdrawal of Israel Defense Forces to the lines of September 28, 2000, before the second intifada erupted, the evacuation of settlements, the reopening of Palestinian institutions in East Jerusalem and the release of all Palestinian prisoners. He added that Israel must allow 13 militants it exiled in 2002 to return to the West Bank.

No report anywhere says that Rice finally started to wonder if this man really wants peace or is worth such obsessive supplication by a superpower and leader of the Free World.

Those “13 militants,” for example, were among the most senior of the terrorists who holed themselves up for weeks in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem in 2002, during which they used the Bible as toilet paper among other desecrations. The 13 incurred the rather light punishment of being deported abroad—but now Abbas wants them back in the Palestinian Authority as a condition for beginning the “peace talks.”

Rice, though, instead of having any known misgivings about this whole endeavor, shuttled off to Cairo where Egyptian foreign minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit gave her more of the same, “warning the summit may be postponed unless a substantive agreement can be reached beforehand.”

Gheit also accused Israel—that disliked entity—of “trying to undermine U.S. efforts to achieve a real peace agreement between the two sides” and said in a statement that “Without addressing these attempts, then we have to seriously think of postponing the conference to another appropriate time.”

As the conference approaches, the Arab atmosphere of bullying and threats is intensifying. Ahmed Qurei—a former PA prime minister and currently head of the Palestinian negotiating team—didn’t mince words just last Thursday when he said, “If the talks fail, we can expect a third and much more severe intifada.”


Out of respect for the horrendous toll in blood brought on by previous Israeli-Palestinian “peace” events at the White House in September 1993 and at Camp David in summer 2000, Rice should take his words seriously and end the Annapolis preparations before another disaster ensues.


A Prescription for War & Genocide — Stop the Annapolis Conference Now!!!

The history of international conferences and congresses –with or without the “peace” label– is not one to inspire confidence. Think of the conferences of Berlin [circa 1878], Versailles [circa 1918-1920], and Munich [1938]. They only laid the groundwork for future wars and massacres, the Second World War in the case of the Munich Conference. Today US secretary of state, Condoleeza Rice, arrived in Israel to pressure the basically unfit, incompetent, corrupt olmert government of Israel to make more concessions to the Arabs. She does this in the name of setting up a “palestinian state” for a fictitious people known as “palestinians” in the international media and diplomatic circles, claiming that such a state would bring peace with Israel in its wake. Yet, there never was a “palestinian” people in all history. Those now called palestinians are in fact Arabs and call themselves Arabs. The charter of the PLO states in Article I that the “Palestinian Arab people is part of the Arab nation and Palestine is part of the great Arab fatherland.” So they consider themselves Arabs first of all. Only Judeophobes pretend that they are a separate people.



The War Against The Jews


from Melanie Phillips Diary

The venomous animosity displayed by the UN towards Israel has been amply documented (if generally ignored). Now John Dugard, the UN human rights envoy for the Palestinian Territories, has vented a stream of this poison. BBC Online reports him saying that he will urge the world body to withdraw from the Quartet of Middle East mediators unless it addresses Palestinian human rights, since the US, EU, UN and Russia were failing to protect the Palestinians.

‘Every time I visit, the situation seems to have worsened,’ he said in a BBC interview. This time, I was very struck by the sense of hopelessness among the Palestinian people.’ Mr Dugard attributed this to ‘the crushing effect of human rights violations’, and in particular Israeli restrictions on Palestinians’ freedom of movement.

Yes, the Palestinians’ situation has worsened. This is principally the result of two things. a) The regime of terror instituted by the Hamas administration for which the Palestinians so unwisely voted and which is progressively making their lives a misery; and b) the restrictions imposed by the Israelis to counter the rockets which the Palestinians are lobbing at Israeli towns from Gaza, and the human bomb attacks they are ceaselessly attempting to perpetrate against Israelis. Strangely, Dugard makes no mention of either.

He said that although Israel did have a threat to its security, ‘its response is very disproportionate’.

* This is the kind of f*kcwit reasoning one has to deal with these days.

Maldives cracks down on “fundamentalists” in wake of bombings

* The Maldives’ reliance on one major industry has undoubtedly accelerated its recognition of the threat jihadists pose to its existence. Larger countries with more diversified economies should also note the measures this Muslim-majority country has taken to protect itself: Are the Maldivians a bunch of Islamophobes? “Maldives cracks down on Islamic extremism,” by Amal Jayasinghe for Agence France-Presse:

The Maldives unveiled tough measures to combat Islamic extremism and protect its vital luxury tourism industry after an unprecedented bombing wounded British, Japanese and Chinese holiday makers.

An order from President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom said fundamentalists should not be allowed to conduct religious services and that foreign clerics should not be able to enter the country without special permission.

* Do they know something we refuse to acknowledge?

The decree, which also outlaws head-to-toe covering for women, comes in the wake of a bombing on September 29 which wounded two Britons, two Japanese and eight Chinese tourists visiting a park in the island capital of Male.

The bombing has unsettled the Maldives, a nation of 330,000 Sunni Muslims who have been practising a liberal form of the religion and built South Asia’s most successful economy with the region’s most exotic and upmarket destination.

But the opposition Adhaalath Party said banning the full covering and the full veil for women could not stop “terrorism.”

* That’s right. As long as they read the Koran…

“The government is going to fight terrorism by banning the beard and the burka,” Adhaalath party leader Abdul Majeed Abdul Baari told AFP. “We are asking the government to study the causes of terrorism and extremism.

“Economic conditions also form part of the problem, but the main issue is the ideological differences and we need to address them.”

Under the tough new measures, the government will also not recognise educational qualifications obtained from madrassas, or Islamic seminaries.

Maldivian authorities are holding more than 50 people suspected of links to a radical Islamic sect in connection with September’s bombing.



Sometimes a burka comes in handy 

That amazingly versatile Islamic garment, the burqa, is not only handy for oppressing women—it’s also the perfect multi-culturally immune disguise for robbing banks: Burka Bandit Hits Hiddenite Bank.


HIDDENITE, N.C. — Police are investigating an unusual robbery in Hiddenite. Someone dressed in a burgundy burka walked into the People’s Bank at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday, showed the teller a handgun and demanded money.

The robber then took off down N.C. 90 in a burgundy sport utility vehicle.

Authorities are looking into whether this bank robbery can be connected to one in Morganton. An androgynously dressed person held up a bank there last week.

Officers aren’t sure whether they’re looking for a man or a woman in either case.

Libya’s Terrorist Regime Rewarded With Seat in UN Security Council


Muammar al-Gaddafi, officially the “Guide of the First of September Great Revolution of the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya”, is not the only socialist autocrat to be invited onto the powerful security council, whose five permanent members include China.

NEW YORK: Libya, once a pariah of the West, took a giant stride back to global respectability when it was elected along with four other countries today to a two-year term on the UN Security Council.

The US, which had used its influence to foil previous Libyan attempts in 1995 and 2000 to win a coveted seat on the powerful council, took no similar action this year, diplomats from other countries said.

Libya, Vietnam and the West African state of Burkina Faso easily obtained a two-thirds majority after being endorsed by regional groupings to stand unopposed for the three non-permanent seats available for African and Asian nations.

Also elected for terms starting on January 1 were Croatia, which defeated the Czech Republic in a contested race for an East European seat, and Costa Rica, which beat off a challenge from the Dominican Republic for a Latin American place.

US deputy UN ambassador Alejandro Wolff declined to say how he had voted, telling reporters only: “We look forward to working with all new members that are elected.” But he added: “I noticed that there were (Pan Am 103) family members … in the room, and I know others were watching. Their presence was felt here today.”

UN Watch condemns election of Qaddafi’s Libya to UN Security Council 

Geneva Oct. 16 –  UN Watch condemned the election of Libya today to the UN Security Council. “Electing Colonel Muammar Qaddafi to maintain international peace and security is like naming Jack the Ripper to fight sexual harassment,” said Hillel C. Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based monitoring organization. “We’re also concerned with the election of Vietnam, a country that continues to deny its citizens fundamental political and religious liberties.”

Neuer expressed concern that “the West is silent as Libya is quickly acquiring a series of new and important UN posts — including its unanimous August election as head of the UN’s “Durban II” anti-racism process through 2009 – even as its record on human rights remains appalling.” The UN and African Union will meet in Libya at the end of the month for Darfur peace talks.


(ANSAmed) – The Libyan debt with Bulgaria, amounting to USD41 million was cancelled by Sofia as a countermeasure for the liberation of the Bulgarian nurses sentenced to death in Libya, and will be transferred to the International Fund ‘Benghazi’ for the cure of Libyan children with AIDS, Sofiàs newspapers reported today. According to daily Dnevnik, the Bulgarian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Feim Chaushev, and the Ambassador of the EU Commission to Tripoli, Marc Pierini, president of the fund, signed yesterday in Sofia an agreement with which Bulgaria cancels the Libyan debt and transfers the sum to the fund. In July, the fund paid a total USD460 million to the families of the over 400 Libyan children infected with the HIV virus in a hospital in Benghazi. More than eight years ago, the Libyan authorities accused the five Bulgarian nurses and a doctor of Palestinian origin, then naturalised Bulgarian, of having intentionally caused the contagion of the children and for this reason sentenced them to death. After the payment of the compensations, the relatives of the small victims withdrew their request of enforcement of the death sentence and the nurses and the doctor were afterwards released, and on their return to Bulgaria they were granted pardon. According to daily ‘Sega’, during a meeting with Pierini, the nurses asked to be considered by the EU as victims, and therefore they asked for compensations, as it happened with the families of the Libyan children sick with AIDS.(ANSAmed).

Montreal imam faces deportation

Cleric from Tunisia concealed criminal conviction in France, refugee board says


MONTREAL — A controversial, outspoken Muslim imam in Montreal was arrested yesterday and faces deportation after his refugee status was revoked for failing to disclose a past criminal conviction.

Saïd Jaziri, a 40-year-old maverick cleric from Tunisia, triggered an uproar in recent days after his appearance on a television talk show where he spoke of homosexuality as a sin.

The show, set up as a supper gathering, also raised eyebrows because other guests had to retreat to the kitchen to sip their wine because Mr. Jaziri said alcohol couldn’t be served in his presence.

But what led to his detention was an incident from his past – a criminal conviction for assault in the southern French city of Nice in 1995.


Last summer, an adjudicator from the Immigration and Refugee Board rescinded Mr. Jaziri’s residency status because he had concealed his criminal record when he applied for refugee status in 1998.

Mr. Jaziri has made varying claims to play down the issue.

In an interview with The Globe and Mail in June of 2006, he acknowledged that he was convicted in France but described it as a scuffle with non-Muslim residents outside a mosque.

Two months later, he told The Canadian Press that he was the victim of RCMP manipulation and that his record had been cleared after he agreed to co-operate with French officials.

* Have you ever seen or heard of a Muslim who was not a victim of something?

According to a 1995 front-page newspaper account from Nice, Mr. Jaziri got an eight-month sentence for inciting fellow Muslims to beat up a less devout co-religionist – who was being blamed for the closure of their informal prayer room – in 1993 at a shelter for immigrants.

The newspaper article, reproduced in a recent book by journalist Fabrice de Pierrebourg on Montreal Muslim activists, also quoted Mr. Jaziri’s lawyer as saying that his client was willing to leave as soon as possible for Tunisia.

The imam of the Al Qods mosque in northeast Montreal, Mr. Jaziri has made headlines for campaigning in favour of faith-based sharia courts of law for Canadian Muslims.

He has also led demonstrations against the publication of caricatures of the prophet Mohammed, even as other leaders urged the community to stay clear of such events for fear of inflaming the situation.

* In other words: He is a terrorist sympathizing rat bag who should have never been allowed to enter Canada in the first place.



Outspoken Montreal imam ordered detained until deportation

A controversial rabid Muslim cleric hatemonger will remain in custody until his deportation next week after the Immigration and Refugee Board declared him a flight risk.

Imam Said Jaziri was ordered detained Wednesday following a nearly four-hour hearing in Montreal. He will be deported to his native Tunisia next Monday.



Syrian official slips, acknowledges nuclear facility

One U.S. delegate told colleagues he could not believe his ears when the Syrian diplomat made his statement and that the resulting document was close to verbatim, and another source told FOX News the document reinforces what people heard [the Syrian representative] say in the actual debate.

Syria already has disowned the remarks, adding “such facilities do not exist in Syria.”

The state-run Syrian Arab News Agency, SANA, quoting an unnamed Foreign Ministry source, said the U.N. press release misquoted the diplomat and that Syria had made it clear that there are no such facilities in Syria.
Syrian President Bashar Assad said earlier this month that the target is an “unused military building.”

* It sure is now. Israel did its best to ensure that.

While Mahmoud Abbas continues making demands, and Condi Rice continues pressuring Israel to accept them, the mask came off again on Palestinian Authority television.

A clip broadcast by Fatah-controlled Palestinian television this week shows a map in which Israel is painted in the colors of the Palestinian flag, symbolizing Israel turned into a Palestinian state.

The description of all the state of Israel as “Palestine” is not coincidental and is part of a formal educational approach throughout the Palestinian Authority. This uniform message of a world without Israel is repeated in school books, children’s programs, crossword puzzles, video clips, formal symbols, school and street names, etc. The picture painted for the Palestinian population, both verbally and visually, is of a world without Israel.

Rice Visits Bethlehem in Symbolic Peace Bid
By Dalia Nammari
Associated Press Writer

CBNNews.com – BETHLEHEM, West Bank – Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a Christian, visited Jesus’ traditional birthplace Wednesday in a symbolic bid to urge Israel and the Palestinians to move quickly to resume formal peace negotiations.


* The catcher in the Rye

Rice has been meeting with Israeli, Palestinian and Egyptian leaders this week as part of preparations for a U.S.-hosted peace conference in November or December. On Tuesday, she won public support from Egypt for the gathering, and then headed to Israel and the West Bank for more talks with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

Rice said her visit helped remind her that “these great monotheistic religions that have inhabited this land together have an opportunity to overcome differences, to put aside grievances, to make the power of religion a power of healing, a power of reconciliation, rather than a power of division.”

Somali government troops have stormed a UN compound in Mogadishu and arrested the World Food Programme chief in protest at a decision to distribute food relief through a network of mosques.
About 60 soldiers forced their way into the WFP offices yesterday morning, taking Idris Osman, a Somali national, into custody at gunpoint and locking him in a cell at the national security services headquarters. No reason was given for the arrest, which promoted an immediate suspension of WFP work in the war-torn capital.

But UN officials said it was linked to a new method of food distribution that began on Monday using 42 local mosques to get aid to more than 75,000 people in the city. The WFP, which is struggling to deal with a growing hunger crisis in Somalia, had been unable to directly distribute food in the capital since June 25 due to violence and looting. “Going through the mosques guaranteed us a level of security that the government cannot give,” said a UN official in Nairobi, who requested anonymity.
Though Somalia is almost completely Muslim, the transitional government views mosques, particularly in Mogadishu, with suspicion. The Somali Council of Islamic Courts, which took over the capital last year before being defeated by invading Ethiopian forces, used clerics to help draw in supporters fed up with more than a decade of anarchy in the country. Remnants of the Islamists’ militant wing are behind a growing insurgency in the capital, with roadside bombs, mortar attacks and gunfights claiming several innocent lives every day.

The authorities draw little distinction between civilians and the insurgents that live among them, so humanitarian assistance is often a source of tension. Mohamed Dheere, the mayor of Mogadishu and a close government ally, recently accused aid agencies of feeding terrorists by giving food aid to internally displaced people in camps near the capital.

Piracy, which was almost completely eliminated during the Islamic Courts’ six-month reign last year, is again rampant, making delivery of food aid by sea highly risky. UN officials believe that members of the government are the protecting the pirates, who demand ransoms of up to $1m (£500m) a ship.


Jihad Against The Dutch: Koranimals Run Amok In Amsterdam

* Following the death of a Muslim Hofstad-group-associated terrorist who burst into a police station and stabbed two officers, Moroccan “youths” are rioting and setting cars on fire in Amsterdam.

Now check the headlines from the Herald Tribune:

Police station vandalized in Amsterdam after officers kill mentally ill attacker

* “Mentally ill”- does that mean Islamically afflicted?

Moroccan-Dutch youths rioted in Amsterdam overnight Tuesday. DPA

A group of dozens of youths in the Slotervaart neighbourhood in western Amsterdam set cars on fire, damaged several other cars and threw stones through the windows of a police station.


Van Gogh & Assassin Bouyery

The riots followed the death of 22-year old Dutch-born Bilal Bajaka, of Moroccan descent.

On Sunday, Bajaka entered the police station of Slotervaart, stabbing two police officers with a knife. Although having sustained serious injuries, one of the officers, a policewoman, shot and killed her alleged attacker on the spot. The two police officers were later brought to the hospital where their condition was described as “serious but stable.”

The police and Amsterdam municipality officials announced at a press conference Monday that a national investigation had been launched into the incident. The police also added that Bajaka had a criminal record.

From the age of 13 up to his death on Sunday, the police said, Bajaka had been involved in several major criminal incidents, including armed robberies and a series of violent incidents. He was allegedly part of a criminal gang.

In addition, police said he was personally acquainted with Mohammed Bouyeri, the convicted killer of the late film director Theo van Gogh, as well as with other Moroccan-Dutch terrorist suspects.

Moroccan-Dutch residents of Slotervaart complained to reporters they were “sick and tired” of continuous “negative news reports” about fellow Moroccan-Dutch, adding they felt increasingly stigmatized. [And what better way to counter those negative news reports than to riot and burn stuff? – ed.]

Several television reporters who came to report on the fatal incident at the police station were threatened by Moroccan-Dutch youths.

Best comments:

* The words “muslim”, “islam”, etc etc appear not once in the article. How telling

* His mama said he was a good muslim, he would never do a thing like that

* Fellow criminals start rioting because they complain they are “made to look bad” in the media.

* Reporters show up…and the rioters attack the reporters.

* The police needs police protection

* How dare they shoot that poor youth, just because he was expressing himself in a way totally unfamiliar with our culture. We need to look at the root causes of this poor soul’s frustration.

* Police said burning cars are acts of retaliation after the killing of a mentally ill man, police said Tuesday.

* Those damned, trigger happy Dutch cops…going around killing sick people.

* Kudos to the lady police officer for ending this one-man jihad. She should get a medal.

* No, she will probably have to seek asylum in Denmark

The Alan Colmes Idiot of the Month comment:

* What? The racist bits about ‘Moroccan’ and ‘Muslim’… you can’t possibly blame a whole religion just because they are Muslim and because they’re stabbing you to death…


 Amsterdam: Eight ‘youths’ arrested for setting cars on fire

* You won’t find  words like ‘Muslim or Islam’ in this Expatica report:

Amsterdam police chief Bernard Welten said the problems in Slotervaart are caused by a “core group of no more than 35 youths aged 12 to 17”.

Welten said the youths come from violent homes, adding that he would not be surprised if the riots would increase to the level of those in Paris last year. “Their parents have no authority over them whatsoever,” he said. He indicated youths in the group were arrested frequently, only to be released soon afterwards, “because we want to be a constitutional state.”

* Limp dick politicians and a toothless police ‘service’ perpetuate the ongoing horror.



Downfall of the Netherlands Land of the Naive Fools

The author shows that the Dutch, if they don’t adjust their policy regarding Muslims and set a drastically different course, will be repressed by the culture of Islam. In a worst-case scenario, they will have to admit they literally gave their already small country away. The author sheds light on the subject from different sides and clarifies with many examples that a seemingly far-fetched speculation is actually already materializing in the foreseeable future.

Bashir: “listen up, you filthy kuffars…!”

A chilling message for the infidels

Scott Atran/First Post


* Abu Bakr Bashir, Indonesia’s version of OBL, is very straightforward about the goals of Islam and the global jihad. Whilst our respective governments and their kooky ‘experts on terrorism’ remain stuck on stupid and practice denial, old Bucktooth doesn’t beat around the bush.

Ever since the first bombings, in which 202 people died, Indonesian authorities have been woolly in their response to terrorism for fear of alienating a largely anti-American population. Nothing illustrates this better than the appeal court’s judgment on Bashir’s early release – they took the decision even though he was implicated in a JI plot toverthrow Indonesia’s previous government, and despite independent testimony from senior JI operatives in custody that he had approved the 2002 bombings.


* Once again, Islam puts up big Ramadan numbers: 1,327 dead bodies
in 282 terror attacks in 20 countries
during its holiest month.

Congratulations to the Religion of Peace!


At 66, Bashir is a lanky, bespectacled Hadrami, who, like Osama Bin Laden, traces his family back to the Hadramawt region of Yemen. Surrounded by acolytes – including known JI bombers – serving him dates, he answered questions with a strong voice and easy laugh.

Scott Atran: What are the conditions for Islam to be strong?

Abu Bakar Bashir: The infidel country must be visited and spied upon. If we don’t come to them, they will persecute Islam. They will prevent non-Muslims converting.

SA: What can the West, especially the US, do to make the world more peaceful?

ABB: They have to stop fighting Islam. That’s impossible because it is sunnatullah [destiny, a law of nature], as Allah has said in the Koran. If they want to have peace, they have to accept to be governed by Islam.

SA: What if they persist?

ABB: We’ll keep fighting them and they’ll lose. The batil [falsehood] will lose sooner or later. I sent a letter to Bush. I said that you’ll lose and there is no point for you [to fight us]. This [concept] is found in the Koran.

SA: Have you met Osama Bin Laden?

ABB: No, no. I want to though. After my release, I hope I can meet him.

SA: Where will you find him?

ABB: If he still exists – but how could I? I have sympathy for his struggle. Osama is Allah’s soldier. When I heard his story, I came to the conclusion that he’s mujahid, a soldier of Allah.

SA: You will always be on his side?

ABB: His tactics and calculations may sometimes be wrong, he’s anordinary human being after all. I don’t agree with all of his actions. Osama believes in total war. This concept I don’t agree with. If this occurs in an Islamic country, the fitnah [discord] will be felt by Muslims. But to attack them in their country [America] is fine.

SA: So this fight will never end?

ABB: Never. This fight is compulsory. Muslims who don’t hate America sin. What I mean by America is George Bush’s regime. There is no iman [belief] if one doesn’t hate America.

SA: How can the American regime and its policies change?

ABB: We’ll see. As long as there is no intention to fight us and Islam continues to grow there can be peace. This is the doctrine of Islam. Islam can’t be ruled by others. Allah’s law must stand above human law. There is no [example] of Islam and infidels, the right and the wrong, living together in peace.


* Yes indeed. Old Bucktooth is a good Muslim. He is doing the right thing for his religion. And you filthy kuffar, what are you gonna do about it..?


Today’s Koran Lesson:

In Islam, all non-Muslims are called unbelievers or infidels. The treatment of the infidels in Islam is divided into two categories. The polytheists, pagans, idolaters and heathens have the choice of converting to Islam or suffer death. The Jews and Christians, whom the Koran calls people of the book, can retain their religion but on the sufferance of accepting humiliation and subjugation to Islam and payment of Jizyah (poll-tax) to the Islamic rulers [For more detail read this article: Unfettered Religious Freedom in Islam – A Fact or Fiction? – by Alamgir Hussain].


Now, let us have a closer look at what the Koran says about the infidels:-

Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)

Make war on the infidels living in your neighboorhood (9:123)

When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)

Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)

Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)

The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)

Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam. (5:33)

The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)

Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies


Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)

The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)

Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)

Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)

Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorise the infidels (8:60)

Qur’an 8:7 “Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words: ‘Wipe the infidels out to the last.’”

Qur’an 8:39 “So, fight them till all opposition ends and the only religion is Islam.”

Qur’an 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.”

The Qur’an certainly proclaims that when the time is appropriate, Muslims must use force to convert the unbelievers to Islam. For the non-Muslims, the alternative to this is to pay the humiliating protection money (Jizya tax) or be killed (by beheading, of course). A militarily dominant Islam, without doubt, precludes the peaceful co-existence with the unbelievers if the Muslims have to abide strictly by the unalterable stipulations of the Qur’an.

* This is why we see very few “moderate” muslims coming out and speaking against the violence. There is so much overwhelming evidence stacked against them not able to be “moderate” because of the fundamental belief’s of Islam.

Orthodox Jew meets suicide bomber

‘Enjoy your tea … before I send you to hell’

“Schmoozing with Terrorists: From Hollywood to the Holy Land, Jihadists Reveal their Global Plans – To a Jew!” by author and WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein 

KLEIN: Show me exactly where in the Quran it states you will get 72 dark-eyed virgins for blowing yourself up amongst civilians. 

AHMED: You and I, we do not discuss Allah and the Quran. I will tell you more the moment that I will explode myself when there will be one dark-eyed virgin who will carry up my soul to the sky.

This is the important part of our mission – fulfilling Allah’s commandments and hoping to receive the prizes we were promised in the Quran.


“I can do this in the name of Allah, and I will not fail. I could slaughter him in the name of Allah”: Muslim woman in Sweden discusses Vilks’ Muhammad cartoon

* What’s the world coming to? We have among us a lunatic fringe, a murderous lot of religious zealots and assassins who go about making death threats to artists, writers and others who oppose their blood- cult. And our respective governments, those who are sworn to protect us, refuse to do their job to arrest and deport them. The MSM ignores it, supports it, or even blames the victim:

Craven CNN Moment of the Day


In their report on Lars Vilks, the Swedish artist whose drawing of Mohammed as a dog has drawn death threats from the Religion of Peaceâ„¢,

CNN says Vilks should have known better.

Vilks, who has been a controversial artist for more than three decades in Sweden, says his drawing was a calculated move, and he wanted it to elicit a reaction. “That’s a way of expressing things. If you don’t like it, don’t look at it. And if you look at it, don’t take it too seriously. No harm done, really,” he says.

When it’s suggested that might prove an arrogant — if not insulting — way to engage Muslims, he is unrelenting, even defiant. “No one actually loves the truth, but someone has to say it,” he says.

Vilks, a self-described atheist, points out he’s an equal opportunity offender who in the past sketched a depiction of Jesus as a pedophile. [No death threats for that, of course. – ed.]

Still one could argue Vilks should have known better because of what happened in Denmark in 2005, when a cartoonist’s depictions of the prophet sparked violent protests in the Muslim world and prompted death threats against that cartoonist’s life.


Lars Vilks says if people don’t like his artwork, then “don’t look at it.”

*HOGANAS, Sweden (CNN)– Swedish artist Lars Vilks says all he’s doing is taking a stand in the name of artistic expression. But because of that stand, on this afternoon he’s lying low — on the ground, in fact — looking for bombs under his car.
Al Qaeda has put a $100,000 price on his head and offered an extra $50,000 for anyone who murders him by slitting his throat after the eccentric artist and sculptor drew a cartoon depicting the Prophet Mohammed as a dog.

His crude, sketched caricature shows the head of Prophet Mohammed on the body of a dog. Dogs are considered unclean by conservative Muslims, and any depiction of the prophet is strictly forbidden.
“I don’t think it should not be a problem to insult a religion, because it should be possible to insult all religions in a democratic way, ” says Vilks from his home in rural Sweden.

“If you insult one, then you should insult the other ones.”

* Indeed. But for too long ‘artists’ have been insulting only religions that don’t assassinate those who insult them.


Burka Mama: coming to get you?

One Swedish Muslim woman who lives just an hour-and-a-half drive from Vilks said she hopes to make good on the al Qaeda threat and slaughter Vilks like a lamb.

“I can do this in the name of Allah, and I will not fail. I could slaughter him in the name of Allah,” says the woman who identified herself only as Amatullah.
She adds, “If I get the opportunity.”

Dressed in a black burqa from head to toe and uttering death threat after death threat, the woman — a wife and mother — says she is defending her religion and her prophet if she manages to kill Vilks.

Amatullah has already been fined for issuing death threats. Still, she claims she will never stop taunting him.
Swedish police, who declined CNN’s request for an interview, have advised Vilks to abandon his home.
But the artist still works there by day and travels to a safe house by night. Vilks knows his defiance could get him killed, but he says his art is worth dying for.

As he sits at his computer, his phone buzzes with a text message. Another death threat has just come in, this one from Pakistan.

“I will kill you, you son a bitch,” he reads.
