Vehicular Jihad in Israel; 7 injured, including 6 female soldiers

In yet another attack of vehicular jihad, a “Palestinian” rammed his car into a group of Jews, then dashed out of the car and attacked another with a knife. Will the UN now issue another condemnation of Israel? Islamic Jew-hatred: it’s in the quran. …(Geller)

VIDEO: Footage from today’s terror attack in Jerusalem. A Palestinian from East Jerusalem plowed his car into a group of female officers and then hit a bicyclist – a 51-year-old Israeli man. The terrorist then got out of the car armed with a meat cleaver and began attacking people before he was shot and captured. All the victims are expected to recover. 

“The motorist terrorist plowed his car into the curb after running over the group of people. Police said the man then got out of his car with a knife and stabbed a pedestrian before he was shot.” We have seen a spate of such attacks recently — and a billboard in Nazareththat actually called for them. “Moderate” Fatah called for such attacks. So this is no surprise. And there will be more of them.

Will the islamophobia never end?

Hussein bin Mahmoud, a jurist of Sharia law for the Islamic State, said in an article published on February 17 and appearing in various jihadi websites that all Christian churches in Cairo must be demolished.

Titled the “Ruling on Egypt’s Christians,” the article, written like a fatwa, asserts that

The ruling concerning the churches that are in Cairo is that they be destroyed, according to the consensus of the righteous forefathers [Salaf], because they are new under Islam, and Cairo is a new city whose original inhabitants were Muslim; there were no churches in it previously.

As for churches in Upper Egypt, which may have been in existence before the Islamic conquest of Egypt, these may remain but may never be renovated or fixed.

The Islamic state cleric cited medieval jurist Ibn Taymiyya (d. 1328), some of whose fatwas deal with Islam’s views on churches which are described as “worse than bars and brothels.” And in fact, Taymiyya and many other jurists (such as Ibn Qayyim) called for the destruction of all churches built after the conquests (see Crucified Again, pgs. 35-36 for a review of the relevant fatwas/teachings).
