Muslims target Jewish neighborhoods?

Oh well, only racist bigot Islamophobes would see something sinister behind this. Move on, nothing to see here:

Ahmadiyya congregation buys Slade Mansion in heart of Jewish community

Reminds me  of the illegal Alma road mosque in St. Kilda, Melbourne. Muslims would never spy on Jews just because  there are some ugly hadits  that command them to kill Jews, like ‘the Gharkad tree:

“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews
(killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The
stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me,come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the  Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim).

Here’s how right believing sunni muslims deal with the Ahmadiyya in Indonesia:

The incident took place on February 6, 2011. At least 3 men were killed in the attack.

Pikesville Mosque to Open at Slade Mansion on Park Heights Avenue

Synagogues and schools line Park Heights Avenue in Pikesville — Temple Oheb Shalom, Baltimore Hebrew Congregation and the Shoshana S. Cardin School, among them. Nearby is the nation’s largest kosher grocery store, and signs promoting Jewish organizations dot the neighborhood. Now the street that runs through the heart of Baltimore’s Jewish community is getting a new religious building: a mosque for Ahmadi Muslims. That plan has taken some area residents by surprise and even stirred some concerns. The Baltimore congregation of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam has bought the Slade Mansion, a white, Colonial-style house at Slade and Park Heights avenues, a busy intersection in Pikesville. Local members of the sect, which has been persecuted in other parts of the world, have outgrown their home in the city and hope they can find a comfortable home in the deeply religious neighborhood.

They will get along swimmingly.

 

Indonesia: running out of "moderate" Muslims

Filmmaker Hanung Bramantyo hopes his controversial new film will spread tolerance and help quell recruitment by radical Islamists on Indonesia’s university campuses

Mission Impossible: Keeping Radical Islamists from Recruiting on Indonesia’s Campuses

Bucktooth Bashir Wants Out

Please read the obligatory disclaimer from AFP:

Indonesia, the most populous Muslim-majority country in the world, is constitutionally secular and culturally moderate.

Barry Soetoro aka Hussein Obama no longer welcome

 “Obama is a murderer of our Muslim brothers in Palestine and Afghanistan, a thief of Indonesia’s natural resources, and an imperialist who seeks to take over the world and will do anything for US interests…”  (AFP)

 The ‘new Indonesia’ will be different:

The government and the judiciary is complicit in the jihad against minorities:

The Other Indonesia

“Moderate” murderer Dani bin Misra  was filmed smashing an Ahmadi man’s skull; let off with 3 months…

A year ago Hussein Obama returned to Indonesia, where he lived as a boy, as President of the United States. In a speech at the University of Indonesia, he reminisced about catching dragonflies, flying kites and running through rice paddies in the Jakarta of his youth. “Indonesia is a part of me,” he told the audience, while lauding the nation and its people for their new democracy, commitment to the rule of law and tolerance for religious diversity. Obama’s affection for Indonesia is understandable. But as he prepares to go to Bali on Nov. 19 for the East Asia Summit, he needs to ditch the nostalgia and deliver a stern message to his onetime home for not living up to its purported ideals.

A key measure of the level of justice and compassion in any society is how it treats its minorities — often its most vulnerable citizens. On that score, Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim country, is failing. In the past year, public violence against religious minorities, who together make up about 12% of the 240 million population, has been relentless: there has been a slew of incidents, from burnings and bombings of churches to attacks by radical Muslims on moderates. The authorities appear unable or unwilling to firmly intervene.(Watch TIME’s video “Keeping Radical Islamists from Recruiting on Indonesia’s Campuses.”)

That seemed to be the case when I was in a packed courtroom outside Jakarta a few months ago. On trial were 12 men charged in connection with a mass assault early this year on members of the peaceful Ahmadiyah sect. Ahmadis believe that their Indian founder Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) was also a prophet, after Muhammad — a claim orthodox Muslims find heretical. This plus other differences have made Ahmadis a target for hard-liners in Pakistan, Bangladesh and, of late, Indonesia too. The attack on the Ahmadis was brutal. A hundreds-strong crowd gathered at opposite ends of a remote rice-farming village on the western edge of Java and converged on an Ahmadi home. The people inside were surrounded and attacked with machetes, sharpened sticks and stones. Three men died; five were badly injured.

At the trial, before the judges entered the chamber, an Islamic cleric in a white robe stepped from the gallery and led the courtroom in prayer. Those inside — plus many more pressed against the outside gate — prayed for the mob, not those killed. People in the crowd told me the Ahmadis had it coming, that the mob was provoked and the violence spontaneous.

One of the accused, 17-year-old Dani bin Misra, was filmed smashing an Ahmadi man’s skull with a rock. He and the other defendants were convicted of “participation in a violent attack that results in casualties.” Dani was sentenced to three months’ jail. The rest, including two clerics, received five to six months. (By contrast, an Ahmadi got six months for wounding an attacker when defending a family’s property.) Said New York City — based Human Rights Watch: “The trial sends the chilling message that attacks on minorities will be treated lightly by the legal system.”(See photos of Suharto’s Indonesia.)

Ain’t nothing but the real thing, baby: UK: Islamic supremacists calling for the mass-murder of Ahmadis

Islamic supremacists bring the persecution of the Ahmadis — who are considered heretics and are viciously persecuted in Pakistan and Indonesia — to the Sceptered Isle. More on this story. “Hardliners call for deaths of Surrey Muslims,” by Jerome Taylor inThe Independent, October 21 (thanks to JW):

Islamic extremists have started openly calling for the destruction of a controversial Muslim sect in a major escalation of sectarian conflict within British Islam, an investigation by The Independent has revealed.

(Now here you got a journo with a full-blown PC infection: the “controversial” Ahmadiyya sect? Is this guy a ‘revert’ or what? Its almost as if he’s preparing the ground for the coming genocide….)

Members of the Ahmadiyya Community have seen a significant upsurge in threats and intimidation over the past four months, sparked by an extremist attack on two of their largest mosques in Pakistan earlier this year.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim community during Friday prayers at Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden, London

Hardline Islamists in Britain have been distributing leaflets calling for the murder of AhmadiMuslims in Kingston-upon-Thames whilst mosques have been vandalised in Newham and Crawley. Preachers in south London have also been orchestrating a boycott of Ahmadi businesses and Ofcom has had to reprimand an Islamic satellite channel for repeatedly calling the sect “Wajib-ul Qatal” – an Arabic phrase used to describe those who digress from mainstream Islam that translates as “liable for death”.

Community leaders say the upsurge in animosity towards Ahmadis is directly linked to violence in Pakistan where local Taliban militants have declared war on sects that they deem to be heretical such as the Ahmadis and the Shi’a.

Although the Ahmadis have been targeted by extremists in the past, the combined attacks on two mosques in Lahore in May was the most brazen assault on their community yet, with 93 worshippers killed as they gathered for Friday prayers, including a number of Britons.

Since the mid 1980s the Ahmadi community has been headquartered in Morden, south London, after their leaders were forced to flee Pakistan, the only country in the world that legally forbids them from declaring themselves Muslims. They claim to have 70 million adherents worldwide although detractors say the number is closer to two million. An estimated 15,000 live in Britain including their spiritual leader Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad.
