Algeria: one-eyed fugitive Mr Marlboro claims responsibility for hostage bloodbath

In a chilling video message, the militant Islamist leader, nicknamed ‘Mr Marlboro’ for his illicit cigarette empire, said: ‘We in Al Qaeda announce this blessed operation.’

He said he was ready to negotiate with Algeria and Western countries if they stop bombing North Mali. His message came as 25 burnt bodies have been discovered inside a gas plant today.

Five terrorists have been captured alive at the Algerian gas plant, security sources have confirmed, as officials uncovered a huge cache of weapons stashed by the militants.

The developments came after the one-eyed master of terror, Mokhtar Belmokhtar, claimed responsibility for the hostage crisis which ended in a murderous bloodshed yesterday.—The  DailyMail has more below the fold.

Murderous Algerian jihadist kidnappers: “We’ve come in the name of Islam, to teach the Americans what Islam is”

Lesson learned. “Hostages Dead in Bloody Climax to Siege in Algeria,” by Adam Nossiter for the New York Times, January 19: (JW)

BAMAKO, Mali — The four-day hostage crisis in the Sahara reached a bloody conclusion on Saturday as the Algerian Army carried out a final assault on the gas field taken over by Islamist militants, killing most of the remaining kidnappers and raising the total of hostages killed to at least 23, Algerian officials said….One Algerian who managed to escape told France 24 television late Friday night that the kidnappers said, “We’ve come in the name of Islam, to teach the Americans what Islam is.” The haggard-looking man, interviewed at the airport in Algiers, said the kidnappers then immediately executed five hostages….

Answer: Abbott hums and haws and suggests it will be cut significantly, but refuses to give a figure.   He agrees we need to talk about “the right kind of migrant”, and says this does indeed mean people able to make a contribution. Or as I put it to him, people who can “fit in”.

He says he wishes women would not wear the burqa, but is not proposing to ban them. Andrew Bolt

How Many French Remain in Algeria?

There are now 6 million (+) Mohammedans in France. Few, if any, French nationals remain in Algeria. The people who tried to civilize the ‘Algeriennes’ have been driven out, their property appropriated.  Colonialism is a dirty word today, we all stand accused of the worst atrocities, our guilt allows Moslems to run amok in our cities and burn our cars, attack and terrorize our citizens. Billions in welfare payments and ‘developing aid’ (jiziya, tribute)  are wasted on “lifting the Muslim world out of poverty”, which will never happen, of course, because it was Islam that got them there in the first place.

All that does not suffice.  A new movie will tell the world how bad we really are, but not everybody is buying:

“It is a falsification of history,” said Frederic Bruno, a 62-year-old pensioner who travelled from Nice to join the rally. In Setif, “the army kept order” after Algerians killed French people, he said. AFP

Ex soldiers protesting against enemy propaganda and the fact that France finances it….

One former “harki” fighter said:   “The film’s a disgrace for France and also for war veterans. I’d say that if they wanted to make this film they should have done so at home but not in France.” EuroNews/The Algerian War

The story sounds familiar:


Hors la Loi (Outside the Law) is about three Algerian brothers who are evicted from their ancestral home when it is occupied by a settler family in 1925, following their story over the next several decades.

It has stirred strong reactions in France for several weeks ahead of its release, particularly over scenes dealing with a crackdown by French troops in the town of Setif in 1945.  Thousands of Algerians – estimates range from 15,000 to 45,000 – and about 100 (the real number is much higher) European settlers were killed.

The BBC conveniently forgets to mention that Algerians killed one another to the tune of 300.000 in a war to establish an Islamic government.

Algeria Mufit: Prison for violent husbands is against Koran & the teachings of profit Muhammad

*  Because Muhammad was a wife beater too, just like his companions….

“Good women are obedient….As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

Here we go again. Look out for Mohammedans popping up complaining that Westerners beat their wives too,  the translation is incorrect,   the beating has to be done “lightly” and “only if absolutely necessary” and with no more than a “toothbrush…”

(ANSAmed) – ALGIERS, MARCH 15 – thanks to the ROP

The proposal to introduce prison terms for men who beat their wives goes against the Koran and the teachings of the prophet Mohamed, according to the head of Algeriàs Superior Islamic Council.

Qaher Sharif fiercely criticised the bill presented to the head of state Abdelaziz Bouteflikàs by the head of the Consultative Council on Human Rights Farouk Qustantiti. “This man’s aim is to violate a law of the Koran and of the Sunnah, and he meddles in subjects that are beyond his competence”, Sharif said in an interview with the Arab-language edition of the daily newspaper El Khabar. “Hés done it before with the death penalty, and now with beatings,” he added, asking “what difference can it make to him what goes on between a man and his wife?” The President of the Islamic Council said that he was stunned by Qustantinìs proposal, because “God has already pointed out precisely the way that a husband must behave towards his wife”.

He quoted verses 34 and 35 of the Surah on women, in which men are advised to “admonish women, confine them to their bed and beat them” should they commit “nushooz”, a term signifying both infidelity and a refusal of sexual intercourse. Sharif pointed out that the text is so precise that it indicates the method of punishment to be used against the wife, and that this should be neither “too insistent, nor provoke disfigurement”.

Egypt: Genocide on Coptic Christians – BBC Claims "Sectarian Violence is Unusual"

At least 6 Christians killed in shooting outside church

At least five Coptic Christians have been killed in a drive-by shooting outside a church in southern Egypt, officials say.

Update: “It is all religious now. This is a religious war about how they can finish off the Christians in Egypt”

The shooting came as worshippers left the church in Naj Hammadi after a midnight mass on Coptic Christmas Eve.

Unidentified gunmen sprayed gunfire indiscriminately into the crowd, officials said.

Two Muslims passing the church were among 10 people reportedly injured in the attack.

Naj Hammadi is 40 miles (64km) from Luxor, southern Egypt’s biggest city.

Coptic Christians account for about 10% of the Egypt’s population of 80 million.

They have complained of harassment and discrimination, though sectarian violence is unusual.

Google “attacks on Copts” and you’ll find thousands of “unusual sectarian violence”

Here’s the report from the Associated (with terrorists) Press:

Spencer: A deliberately timed massacre, though the ongoing persecution of Christians in Egypt by Muslims is only vaguely alluded to at the end of the article. “Gunmen kill 6 at Egypt church after Christmas Mass,” by Sarah El-Deeb for the Associated Press, January 6:  JW

“Qena is one of Egypt’s poorest and most conservative areas.”

Conservative, how? That, and its bearing on security for Christians in Egypt is left unsaid.

More on the oppression of the Copts:

So the same article from Al BeBeeCeera includes 6 recent links to attacks and murders of Copts, the original inhabitants of Egypt. But the Beep insists on painting a pussy on your cheek: “sectarian violence is unusual.”

Egyptian cops arrest 13 Copts — the victims of attack by Islamic supremacists

The local imam incited the Islamic supremacists to attack the Christians. So yet another imam is exposed as a Misunderstander of the Religion of Peaceâ„¢. Why didn’t his Qur’anic study tell him to respect the People of the Book, and not to wage jihad against or expect them to assume dhimmi status? Aren’t Islamic apologists in the West forever telling us that the only people who believe that Muslims hold to jihad against Jews and Christians, and in dhimmitude, are greasy Islamophobes? How is it then that so many Muslims, including even imams, turn out to be greasy Islamophobes?

North Africa feels Europe’s pull

ORAN, Algeria — The French-speaking North African countries are technically part of the Arab world. The political rhetoric from the Arab East has its audience here and al-Jazeera television is omnipresent.

Appearance is, however, deceptive. North Africa is separated from Europe merely by the breadth of the Mediterranean, and the pull of Europe felt here is far greater than that of the Gulf.
