Quote of the Day:
Islam is not Christianity… Â Islam is the religion of agitation, revolution, blood, liberation and martyrdom.
-Sheikh Morteza Motahari, quoted in “Islamic Movements in the Last One Hundred Years,” Tehran, 1979
A MAN in a suit and baseball cap with a backpack on his chest and carrying a suitcase walks awkwardly into the Ritz-Carlton’s sprawling Airlangga restaurant just before 8am.
Moments later, the hotel’s closed-circuit television footage shows the large open doorway to the restaurant erupt with glass, debris and smoke as a bomb is detonated inside at 7.57am. Shards of glass rain down on the streets of Jakarta’s upmarket Mega Kuningan business district like confetti.
* Counter Jihad has video of a suicide bomber blowing himself up, here
The flickering footage from the second floor of the luxury hotel shows people in the doorway engulfed by the blast, while others dive for cover behind furniture and walls.

Â The usual BS from the Muslims at Islam Online:Â
johnboy:Â NO Muslim could do such a thing.Â It must be George Bush, the CIA and mossad since they have the most to gain.Â Obama knew about it and approved it.Â Â Think about it…Â
No jews were present at either hotel.Â Could they have been warned by the mossad and CIA?Â George Bush was in hiding.Â Could this all be planned by the USA and Israel?Â Yes.Â Think about it…no muslim would committ a suicide bombing, only a jew would would do such a thing,Â They have so much to gain. (Really? And what would that be?/ed)

an expat eyewitness explained that the Ritz is the most secure and well-protected hotel in Indonesia, and couldn’t understand how this could ever possibly have happened. As became clear later on, the terrorist(s) didn’t walk in the building this morning: they already were in there, staying on the 18th floor.
And fromÂ ANTARA News:Â Yudhoyono says terrorists targeted him
What the events of the last few years prove is that thereÂ isÂ a military answer to terrorism. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
‘Palestinians’ became suicide bombers out of a desire for religious martyrdom. One did not see the children of the leadership becoming suicide bombers – usually it was the less intelligent people or the ones who were headed for death by ‘honor killing‘ anyway.
