Boko Haram Murder at Least Sixteen but Lose Fifty-Six.

"Allah has purchased the believers, their lives & their goods. For them (in return) is the Garden. They fight in Allah's Cause, & they slay & are slain; they kill & are killed." It is very rare, when slogging through the morass of gibberish that is the Koran, to find something, anything, that rings even half true, but the afore-quoted verse 9:111 did, at least, raise half a smile when considered alongside the news that, while the ignorant savages of Boko Haram did murder 12 innocent souls for the crime of celebrating a wedding, 56 of them were wiped out in a successful military operation elsewhere, as reported by The Daily Star today:

12 dead in suspected Boko Haram wedding attack

Twelve people died in a suspected Boko Haram attack on a wedding party at the weekend, police and health officials in the northeast Nigerian state of Borno said on Monday.

Two gunmen on a motorcycle opened fire in the mainly Christian village of Tashan Alade, 230 kilometres (over 140 miles) from the Borno state capital Maiduguri, on Saturday, said police commissioner Lawan Tanko.

"The attackers, who were obviously Boko Haram insurgents, arrived at the open-air venue of the party around 2:00 pm (1300 GMT) and opened fire, killing seven people and injuring five others," he told AFP.

"The gunmen fled immediately and escaped before security personnel could be alerted due to the remoteness of the village."

Witnesses to the attack said the gunmen pretended to be guests and opened fire as cash was given to the newlyweds in a traditional Nigerian custom.

The wedding was attended by both Christians and Muslims, they added.

People injured in the raid were taken to hospital in Maiduguri, where a number died from gunshot wounds, said one hospital worker, who requested anonymity.

"Twelve people were brought here on Saturday with very serious gunshot wounds from Tashan Alade," the source added.

"Five of the injured died yesterday (Sunday)."

The seven others were said to be in a serious but stable condition.

Boko Haram has in recent months intensified attacks on civilians in northern Borno in response to their perceived collaboration with the military tasked with stemming the bloody insurgency.

Nigeria's government in May imposed a state of emergency in Borno and two other northeastern states, Yobe and Adamawa.

The operation -- assisted by civilian vigilante groups -- has seen Boko Haram fighters forced out of Maiduguri into more remote, rural areas on the border with neighbouring Cameroon, Chad and Niger.

The military has said that Boko Haram was now crossing the notoriously porous borders in the region to mount attacks before retreating.

Elsewhere, four people were reportedly killed in the village of Kwajaffa, also in Borno state, on Sunday, raising fears of fresh attacks in the majority Christian community and others nearby.

Kwajaffa is near the Sambisa Forest, where Boko Haram has been engaged in fierce fighting with the military.

There were also reports of further deaths in the village of Warabe, also near Sambisa Forest.

Nigeria's military meanwhile announced on Monday that security forces killed more than 56 militant fighters in a ground and air offensive east of Maiduguri, near Bama, close to the Cameroon border.

Two soldiers were wounded as part of the weekend operation to flush out the Islamists from their forest bases, said defence spokesman Chris Olukolade in an emailed statement.

Separately, Olukolade said soldiers had "foiled an attempt by terrorists who were massing up on an island on Lake Chad with a view to carrying out an attack on some Nigerian communities".

He added that seven militants were killed while those injured were headed towards Niger and Chad.

"Intelligence reports have confirmed that some of the wounded terrorists were seen in a canoe paddling towards... (the) Chad Republic." he said.

The weekend violence and response came as local government elections took place amid tight security in Yobe on Saturday, which saw tough restrictions on movement and armed guards at polling stations.

Turnout was nevertheless nearly 79 percent, according to the Yobe State Independent Electoral Commission.

The election was won by the country's main opposition All Progressives Congress party.

Boko Haram's four-year insurgency, which seeks to create an Islamic state in Nigeria's mainly Muslim north, has killed thousands of people.

Muslim Thugs Attack Police Station in Yarkand, Uighuristan.

Wherever Muslims have to rub shoulders with non-Muslims there is trouble. If they have upper hand then they either extort from the unbelievers or eradicate them. If not, then they claim victim status for every little slight. Thus we see in China continual violent unrest resembling in kind, if not in degree, the violent unrest we see in Syria, the Philippines, Indonesia & Israel. (Isn't it almost as if they're all operating from the same manual?) Another attack was launched upon a police station today, as reported by Reuters:

Chinese police shoot dead eight after Xinjiang 'terrorist attack'

Police in China's restive far western region of Xinjiang shot dead eight people during a "terrorist attack" on Monday, the regional government said, the second outbreak of violent unrest this month in a region that has a substantial Muslim population.

The attack happened in Yarkand county close to the old Silk Road city of Kashgar in Xinjiang's far south, the Xinjiang government said in a statement on its official news website (www.ts.cn).

"At around 6:30 am, nine thugs carrying knives attacked a police station in Kashgar's Yarkand county, throwing explosive devices and setting police cars on fire," the brief statement said.

"The police took decisive measures, shooting dead eight and capturing one," it added, labeling the incident a "violent terrorist attack" which was being investigated further.

Earlier this month, police shot and killed 14 people during a riot near Kashgar in which two policemen were also killed.

In a similar outburst of violence, at least nine civilians and two policemen were killed when a group of people armed with axes and knives attacked a police station, also near Kashgar, last month, state media has said.

China has previously blamed some of the violence in Xinjiang on Islamist militants plotting holy war.

Rights groups and exiles say police often use often heavy-handed tactics against the Muslim Uighur community, which calls Xinjiang home. Violence has broken out previously when groups of Uighurs protest at police stations, they say.

China has stepped up security in Xinjiang after a vehicle ploughed into tourists on the edge of Beijing's Tiananmen Square in October, killing three people in the car and two bystanders.

China said the attack was carried out by Islamist militants.

Many of Xinjiang's Turkic-speaking, Muslim people chafe at restrictions on their culture, language and religion, though the government insists it grants them broad freedoms.

Xinjiang has been the scene of numerous incidents of unrest in recent years, which the government often blames on the separatist East Turkestan Islamic Movement, even though many experts and rights groups cast doubt on its existence as a cohesive group.

Many rights groups say China has long overplayed the threat posed to justify its tough controls in energy-rich Xinjiang, which lies strategically on the borders of Central Asia, India and Pakistan.

Religion of Peace Strikes Volgograd a Second Time.

"Allah has purchased the believers, their lives & their goods. For them (in return) is the Garden. They fight in Allah's Cause, & they slay & are slain; they kill & are killed." So says Allah, the god of the Muslims, in his perfect book, the Koran, in verse 9:111. If you are, like me, an ignorant kafir who doesn't know anything about the wonders of Islam, that quote may sound a bit violent, yes? Apparently though, it's lovely & peaceful & only ignorant people like us misunderstand Islam as violent & hateful. Not only us though, the second person to detonate a bomb on Volgograd public transport in as many days seems to have got the wrong end of the stick as well, as reported by Reuters today:

Second blast in Russia's Volgograd kills 10 on trolleybus

A bomb blast ripped a trolleybus apart in Volgograd on Monday, killing at least 10 people in the second deadly attack in the southern city in two days and raising fears of further violence as Russia prepares to host the Winter Olympics.

The morning rush-hour bombing, which left mangled bodies in the street, underscored Russia's vulnerability to militant attacks less than six weeks before the Sochi 2014 Games, a prestige project for President Vladimir Putin.

It came less than 24 hours after a suicide bomb blast killed at least 17 people in the main railway station in the same city, a major transport hub in southern Russia.

A Reuters journalist saw the blue-and-white trolleybus reduced to a twisted, gutted carcass, its roof blown off and bodies and debris strewn across the street. Federal investigators called the blast a "terrorist act".

"For the second day, we are dying - it's a nightmare," a woman near the scene said, her voice trembling as she choked back tears. "What are we supposed to do, just walk now?"

The consecutive attacks will raise fears of a concerted campaign of violence before the Olympics, which start on February 7 in Sochi, about 430 miles southwest of Volgograd.

In a video posted on the web in July, the leader of insurgents who want to carve an Islamic state out of the North Caucasus, a string of Muslim provinces south of Volgograd, urged militants to use "maximum force" to prevent the games from being held.

A female suicide bomber from the North Caucasus killed six people on a bus in Volgograd in October.

Spokespeople for the International Olympic Committee in Lausanne, Switzerland, could not immediately be reached for comment on the most recent bombings.

BIGGEST SECURITY CHALLENGE

In power since 2000, Putin secured the Games for Russia and has staked his reputation on a safe and successful event. He has law enforcement agencies to ensure security at the Olympics in Sochi, at the northwest end of the Caucasus mountain range.

Putin was first elected after winning popularity for a war against Chechen rebels, but attacks by Islamist militants whose insurgency is rooted in the war have clouded his 14 years in power and now confront him with his biggest security challenge.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for either of the Volgograd attacks, which left dozens wounded in addition to the deaths. Authorities said 37 people were hospitalized after Sunday's attack and 23 were reported wounded on Monday.

After the attack on Sunday, in which authorities said a bomber detonated explosives in front of a metal detector at Volgograd station, Putin ordered law enforcement agencies to take measures to enhance security.

Police said additional officers would be sent to railway stations and airports nationwide and more extensive security checks would be conducted.

But the attacks raised questions about the effectiveness of security measures that the Kremlin routinely orders increased after bombings.

More attacks can be expected before the Olympics and cities in southern Russia where the Games are not being held are easier targets than Sochi, said Alexei Filatov, deputy head of the veterans' association of the elite Alfa anti-terrorism unit.

"The threat is greatest now because it is when terrorists can make the biggest impression," he told Reuters. "The security measures were beefed up long ago around Sochi, so terrorists will strike instead in these nearby cities like Volgograd."

"Half of our traffic police and emergency workers have been sent to Sochi," said Alexei, a Volgograd resident whose wife called from her car after hearing the blast and seeing the gutted trolleybus.

"She heard cries - I could hear her voice shaking," he said. "Then she locked herself in the car and gave way to hysterics."

A city of about 1 million, Volgograd is one of the venues for the 2018 soccer World Cup, another high-profile sports event Putin has helped Russia win the right to stage, and which will bring thousands of foreign fans to cities around Russia.

Sunday's attack was the deadliest to strike Russia's heartland since January 2011, when a male suicide bomber from the North Caucasus killed 37 people in the arrivals hall of a busy Moscow airport.

Investigators initially said a woman set off the bomb that filled the front of the railway station building with a massive orange fireball on Sunday, but later said the bomber could have been a man.

Murderous Brothers to Hang in Jordan.

Though Muslims will often tell you that honour killing has nothing to do with Islam they do seem to go in for it an awful lot. It stems from the overall misogyny inherent in Islamic teaching: "The Prophet said: 'I was shown the Hell Fire & the majority of its dwellers were women who are disbelievers or ungrateful.' When asked what they were ungrateful for, the Prophet answered, 'All the favours done for them by their husbands.'" That was from the most highly regarded compilations of hadith, Sahih Bukhari, in volume one, book 22, number 28.

Women are not highly regarded in the Islamic world & must be controlled. If they cannot be controlled, then the lack of self-control that afflicts many Muslim men who have not been westernised (see the essay by Danish criminal psychologist, Nicolai Sennels, in the New English Review, May 2010) will lead to murder. When cases of honour killing come before the courts in Muslim countries, we usually witness the sickening spectacle of the family (who, no doubt, were in on it from the start) pleading for leniency & getting it.

Well, not this family. Two men who killed their sister by strangling in Jordan have been sentenced to death today, as reported by Al Arabiya:

Two Jordanians sentenced to death over 'honor killing'

The criminal court in Amman on Sunday sentenced two Jordanian men to death for killing their sister in June "to cleanse the family's honour," a court official said.

"The two men, aged 23 and 20, took their divorced sister, also in her twenties, to the garden of their house and strangled her in June 2013," in Zarqa, a city northeast of Amman, the official told AFP.

"They confessed to killing their sister, who worked in a kindergarten after suspecting that she had behaved badly," the official said without elaborating.

"They said that they wanted to cleanse the family's honor," the official added.

Murder is punishable by death in Jordan, but in "honor killings" courts usually commute or reduce sentences if the victim's family requests leniency.

Maximum punishment

"For the first time in several years, the family of the victim refused to ask the court for leniency, demanding the maximum punishment," another court official told AFP without giving further details.

Between 15 and 20 women die in so-called "honor" murders each year in the kingdom, despite government efforts to curb such crimes.

A study by Cambridge University's Institute of Criminology in June said many Jordanian teenagers believe killing a daughter, sister or wife who has "dishonored" or shamed the family is justified.

Female Suicide Bomber Kills Sixteen in Volgograd.

"Therefore let those fight in the way of Allah, who sell this world's life for the hereafter; & whoever fights in the way of Allah, then be he slain or be he victorious, We shall grant him a mighty reward." So says Allah, in his wondrous, perfect & miraculous book, the Koran, in verse 4:74. The 'mighty reward' is, of course, the 72 virgins that accompany each & every martyr in paradise.

What Allah's perfect book fails to explain is what 'mighty reward' she receives for, for example, detonating ten kilos of TNT in a crowded railway station, as one young lady did this afternoon in Volgograd, as reported by CNN:

Official: Suicide bomber kills 16 at Russian train station

A massive explosion at a train station in the Russian city of Volgograd killed at least 16 people, including one police officer, the Investigative Committee of Russia said on its website Sunday.

The head of the committee, Vladimir Markin, said 16 people had been killed and 34 people were injured, including a 9-year-old girl.

The female suicide bomber set off the device before she could pass through a metal detector, Markin said, citing available information.

He said the bomber used the equivalent of 10 kilograms of TNT and included shrapnel.

Video taken from an outside security camera shows a huge fireball inside what appears to be the main entrance followed by a steady trail of smoke coming out shattered windows.

The bombing occurred at about 12:45 p.m. local time (3:45 a.m. ET), officials said.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has expressed his heartfelt condolences to the families of the Volgograd bombing victims, the Russian government said on Twitter.

He ordered the emergency and health ministry to provide "all necessary assistance" to the wounded.

It is the second bombing in the southern Russian city in two months and comes less than six weeks ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, located less than 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) from Volgograd.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

"There can be no justification for such barbarous attacks." said NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen. "NATO and Russia stand together in the fight against terrorism., including by working together on technology to prevent attacks on public transport systems."

Markin
Medvedev
Rasmussen

In October, a bomber blew up a passenger bus, killing six people and wounding more than 30 others. Russian media reported that a female Islamist suicide bomber from the Russian region of Dagestan was responsible for the attack.

Volgograd, once called Stalingrad, is a major rail hub in the region, and each day thousands of passengers pass through the station, many on their way to Moscow.

The restive region of Chechnya is also located in this southern portion of Russia.

Don't Call Terrorists Terrorists or They'll Do more Terrorism.

The appeasement of Islam & Muslim fanatics doesn't just occur in cringing, politically correct invertebrates in the West, who trumpet the equality of all cultures as if mutilating your daughter's genitals or flying a plane into a building were on a par with Mozart, Dickens or the freedom of speech. People in the Middle East whom, one would have thought, had seen quite enough of the implacable nature of the Muslim Brotherhood, also quail at the thought standing up to them or even labelling them as terrorists, as this editorial piece in The Daily Star, yesterday, amply demonstrates:

Blood game

The increasing frequency and ferocity of Islamist attacks in Egypt is threatening to take the country down an Iraqi path of self-destruction. But at the same time, the labeling of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization is an inflammatory and dangerous move which will only further enflame the situation.

With their supporters constituting about one-third of the entire population, the Muslim Brotherhood enjoys solid support. But now their members face up to five years in prison for simply possessing their literature or attending one of their demonstrations.

While it is evident that the Muslim Brotherhood, and affiliated groups, have been involved in some of the recent acts of violence, simply labeling the group a terrorist organization is completely unsatisfactory.

It does not address the reasons why the Brotherhood is so attractive to such a large segment of the Egyptian population – the services it can provide to a people often suffering from entrenched poverty, who have been sidelined and neglected by the state for decades. For many, membership in the group is a result of the oppression and injustices they have experienced on a daily basis for decades. Such feelings will not simply evaporate now that the Brotherhood is blacklisted; rather, for many it will emphasize these sentiments. These people's needs must be addressed.

But while banning the group threatens to further exacerbate existing divisions in the country, the Brotherhood's campaign of violence is similarly dangerous, and will result in nothing but bloodshed and anger. Its opponents will feel further justified in cracking down on a group which claims to want to be seen as simply a political party.

Hamas' collusion with the Brotherhood must also be withdrawn. As if the Gaza-based group didn't have enough of its own problems to deal with at home: the constant threat of Israel, a people living in an overcrowded enclosure, dwindling financial channels, the war in Syria.

For 85 years, the Brotherhood was forced to operate clandestinely. But with their first legitimate election win, they very soon revealed their disregard for democracy and their lust for more power. They failed to realize before it was too late that the people of Egypt did not just want someone who wasn't Hosni Mubarak, they wanted someone who was completely different.

With a glimpse of the chance of a new future, the people of Egypt were never going to be satisfied by another president apparently concerned with his own circle and holding on to power. Instead of blaming the military for everything, the Brotherhood needs to take a hard look at itself, and what happened in the months leading up to Mohammad Morsi's ouster on July 3.

Unless the Brotherhood is able to reflect on its own mistakes and give up violence, the situation in Egypt will only continue to get worse.

After the piquant observation that the Brotherhood's campaign of violence is dangerous, it is the final paragraph of the piece that leads one to wonder quite what medication its writer must be taking. And where the rest of us can get some.

It should surely go without saying that reflecting upon one's own mistakes & renouncing violence is never going to be on the cards for an organisation whose strap line is this:

Taliban to Retake Helmand once Squaddies Depart.

When NATO went into Afghanistan in 2001, the immediate goal was to displace the al-Qaeda filth infesting the place. That was done reasonably quickly. The task then was 'nation building', however, in the absence of any willingness to recognise what the obstacle to nation building was – Islam – & not the Taliban that invoke a wayward 'interpretation' of the hideous raft of medieval claptrap, this was not going to be on the cards. It can come as no source of comfort to the 447 families up & down the country that will never be the same again, that the head of the British Army foresees the Taliban taking over the country quite promptly when Western forces leave. This, from The Telegraph yesterday:

Taliban could retake key territory, says Army head

The Taliban could retake vital territory won by British forces in Afghanistan following Britain's military withdrawal next year, Army chief warns

Vital territory won by British forces in Afghanistan risks being lost to the Taliban as Britain completes its military withdrawal by the end of next year, the head of the Army has warned.

Key Afghan towns such as Musa Qala, where British troops suffered heavy casualties during the early phase of military operations in Helmand province, could be retaken by the Taliban as insurgents seek to regain lost territory, General Sir Peter Wall said.

So far 447 British soldiers have died and hundreds more have suffered serious injury during fighting in Afghanistan. The latest British soldier to die there was serving with the Royal Engineers when he was killed during an operation to the east of Kabul earlier this week.

In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph, Sir Peter warned that British forces face a tough year as they complete the withdrawal of the remaining 6,000 troops before combat operations draw to a close at the end of 2014.

"The Taliban will be contesting the places we've left and there are these iconic places like Musa Qala which we fought over and suffered quite significantly," said Sir Peter after visiting British forces in Afghanistan over Christmas. "It would be quite bad news if the Taliban were to get back into a place like that."

He added that while the military had been involved in a "tough campaign", British forces had achieved their primary objective of displacing and disrupting the al-Qaeda network so that it could no longer plot attacks against the West from safe havens in Afghanistan.

"The Army's head is up," said Sir Peter. "People are extremely proud of what they have achieved."

But he warned that the fate of Afghanistan rested increasingly in the hands of the Afghan security forces who will be responsible for making sure the Taliban do not reclaim territory in the south of the country vacated by the British withdrawal.

And he said the fighting would continue for some years unless "more moderate" elements of the Taliban could be "assimilated into the political process".

True Islamic Teaching Uncovered in American Schools & Mosques.

Islam is a religion of peace, so we are told by or 'betters' in politics & the mainstream media. Not for real Muslims the hatred of the infidel & violence towards Westerners demonstrated in Washington & New York on 9/11, or in London on 7/7, or in Madrid on 3/11, or in Mumbai on 26/11, or in Bali on 1/10, or London again on 22/5… am I boring you? No sir, those were just aberrations, distortions of the true teachings of Islam that do not represent Islam at all & were committed by people who badly misunderstood the religion of peace. Now go back to sleep.

Is it not strange then that, when observed in the absence of us non-believers, who have such a Western, blinkered view of the religion of peace, Muslims do indeed teach hatred of the infidel & the spiritual qualities of jihad? Such has been found to be the case by both the BBC & Channel 4 in the UK & now by one David Gaubatz, who visited 250 Islamic institutions in the USA & described what he observed in an essay posted by The Clarion Project on Monday (hat-tip to Lyle Klich @LyleKlich):

American Muslim Children Taught to Hate

The astonishing and disturbing findings of an undercover reporter inside America's mosques.

In the last five years I have personally visited over 250 Islamic Centers, mosques, and Islamic Schools throughout America. The goal of my research has been to determine what Islamic leaders are teaching the young and innocent Muslim children. The findings are abhorrent, sad, unbelievable and frightening. Most disturbing is the fact our government is keeping this dangerous fact from the American people.

Muslim children attending mosques and Islamic schools are being taught to hate America, our government, our military personnel and its non Muslim population. In this article I will identify three significant mosques in America that are leading the way in teaching Muslim children to hate and influencing them to commit violent acts inside our country.

In America we have been programmed by the media and political leaders to believe violent teachings of Islam are only being taught to children in Palestine. We have watched the Muslim Palestinian children spew their taught hatred of the Israelis. What Americans are not being shown (due to political correctness) are that Muslim children throughout the world and specifically inside America are also being taught violence and hatred.

Children as young as seven years old are being taught that to assimilate with America is to disrespect and dishonor Islam. They are being taught that our military personnel are the enemies of Islam, and that it is justifiable to kill anyone who dishonors or oppresses the Islamic ideology.

During my research I have identified numerous mosques that are teaching young Muslim children to hate America and are leading them to commit future violent acts against our country and innocent people. I would like to focus on three such mosques.

Dar al Hijrah, Falls Church, Virginia

My researchers and I spent several weeks at the Dar Al Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia. Almost immediately we were informed to obtain our study material from the Halaco Bookstore which is located nearby the mosque. It was very apparent upon entering the store and reviewing the materials that the bookstore provides materials for the Sunni (Wahhabi) Muslim population across the U.S. and specifically for Dar Al Hijrah.

Anwar al-Awlaki was an imam at the Dar al Hijrah Mosque from January 2001 until 2002. Three of the 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Mihdhar, Nawaf al-Hazmi and Hani Hanjour, attended some of Awlaki's sermons at this mosque. I was able to spend many hours talking with store personnel and was invited to the home of one employee to discuss Islamic issues.

al-Awlaki
al-Mihdhar
al-Hazmi
Hanjour

There is a large section in the store dedicated to the education of the Muslim children. I discovered materials that are being sent to Islamic schools across America. Much of the material deals with Sharia (Islamic law) and jihad.

One of the DVD's and books I obtained was by an Islamic scholar Ahmad Sakr. Sakr travels the U.S. visiting Islamic schools and educates them in Sharia law. I have watched one of his videos in which he tells the young children our government is evil and not to follow the laws of our country and Americas government leaders will all go to hell.

The material provided by Dar Al Hijrah and their selected Islamic bookstore also was filled with violent jihad. There were manuals informing the readers how to destroy America, and how to kill anyone who oppresses Islam. They are told how to obtain weapons, including weapons of mass destruction. Although all of the above is very disturbing and should (and actually is) against the law, the Muslim leaders of Falls Church are allowed by our government to indoctrinate the Muslim children into future violence against our country.

Al Farooq, Nashville, Tennessee

The Al Farooq mosque in Nashville, Tennessee is even more disturbing. My research team and I spent two weeks at the Al Farooq mosque. The mosque was Sunni and had the typical violent books and DVD's/videos pertaining to the overthrow of any government system that oppresses Islam. They also had numerous teachings from current Islamic leaders operating in America who are teaching the Muslim population to hate our country and its people.

Although this should frighten all concerned citizens, there was even sadder and disturbing intelligence collected at this mosque. Lately, we have all read about the child brides and forced marriages in Afghanistan and in Saudi Arabia. What most Americans do not realize is that child marriages are occurring throughout our country and specifically in Nashville, Tennessee.

One young 7 year old Muslim girl at Al Farooq talked to our researcher about being beaten by her Islamic leaders and being married to a Muslim man. I reported the matter to the Nashville authorities, but almost from the beginning they were reluctant to intercede because this was a religious institution and more importantly to them it was Islamic.

Senior law enforcement authorities of the Nashville police department informed me they were afraid of being sued by Islamic organizations such as CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) if they got involved, and it would be a political nightmare to get anything done at the mosque.

What bothered me most of all is the fact I contacted an Islamic organizations to help this innocent Muslim child and they also balked. This reinforced to me that Islamic law (Sharia) is alive and very active inside our country, to include child marriages.

Taqwa, Brooklyn, New York

The next mosque I investigated is led by an Islamic scholar who is not only a major fundraiser for CAIR but travels throughout the U.S. teaching his violent ideology of Islam. He is Imam Siraj Wahhaj. For those who have never visited the Islamic district of Brooklyn it would come to a surprise to many that the area around At Taqwa is similar to the Wahhabi land of Saudi Arabia. I have previously described Wahhaj as the most dangerous man in America. I have reviewed hundreds of his Friday (Juma) mosque lectures.

In one speech he tells his followers that around the world Muslims will wake up and say,"I don't want to follow the way of the colonial masters any more. I want the Sharia. I want Islam. We want to be ruled by Islam. And all we have to do is go back to that golden generation."

He routinely called America an evil country and is a strong leader in developing Sharia law inside America. His violent lectures are available to the adult and child Muslims throughout America.

"Those who struggle for Allah, it doesn't matter what kind of weapons, I'm telling you it doesn't matter! You don't need nuclear weapons or even guns! If you have faith in Allah and a knife!! If Allah wants you to win, you will win! Because Allah is the only one who fights. And when his hand is over your hand. whoever is at war against my friends, I declare war on them." (From a video of a sermon from Sept. 28, 1991 by Sirah Wahhaj called "The Afghanistan Jihad," given in Toronto, Canada.)

"If we go to war, brothers and sisters – and one day we will, believe me – that's why you're commanded [to fight in] jihad. When Allah demands us to fight, we're not stopping and nobody's stopping us." (Sermon by Siraj Wahhaj entitled "Stand Up to Justice," delivered on May 8, 1992 and distributed as a video.)Islamic teachings such as this are what led Major Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood Murderer, to commit his acts.

Although I have only focused on three mosques that lead the way in introducing Muslim children to violence and hatred, there are hundreds scattered across the U.S. Few states are immune from this growing threat. The violence spewed by these Islamic leaders will ultimately lead to more violence in the name of Islam. I have witnessed firsthand the violence being taught. There are numerous such Islamic centers in North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, New York and California.

Unless Muslim parents decry the violent teachings of Islam to their children, there will continue to be more and more Siraj Wahhaj-type Islamic leaders in America. The ultimate result will be the suffering of America as we now see in France, Britain and Canada.

Policy of Appeasement of Islam Reaches new Depths of Depravity in Israel.

Appeasement is an ugly, humiliating &, ultimately, futile thing. It is a betrayal, not just of the people to whom one is meant to be loyal, but of one's own self. All of one's own principles, even one's own common sense, must be suppressed when trying to appease a foe that has given every indication of their bloody intent. So with Chamberlain, so with Israel, which is releasing some of the most heinous & ruthless killers in its prisons, so that the Palestinians might be persuaded to lay down their arms.

Fat chance, given verses such as: "Though God promised that one of two columns (would fall to you), you desired the one that was not armed. But Allah wished to confirm the truth by His words, & wipe the unbelievers out to the last." To be found in the Koran (verse 8:7). The latest move on the part of Israeli authorities, the release of child killers, is too much for many citizens to stomach & the mothers of said children are in revolt, as reported by Arutz Sheva today (hat-tip to The Religion of Peace):

Mothers of Slain Children: We Cannot be Silent

The government's plans to release Palestinian Arab terrorists who have murdered Israelis are facing opposition from a new corner: mothers of children who were slain in terrorist attacks.

Bereaved mothers have previously fought terrorist release along with other relatives of victims; now the group 'Mothers Forever' (Imahot L'Netzach) is waging its own campaign to keep murderers in prison.

Arutz Sheva spoke to Shira Avraham, whose 7-month-old daughter Shaked was murdered in a terrorist attack on the family's home in Negohot, near Hevron, 10 years ago.

The terrorist who murdered baby Shaked and 27-year-old Eyal Yaiberboim had been released from prison just two months earlier in an Israeli "good-will gesture" to the Palestinian Authority, Avraham related. He had been in jail due to a previous attempt to carry out a terrorist attack.

"We cannot stand to sit quietly and see terrorists released over and over," she declared. Freeing terrorists who murdered children "is simply immoral," she stated.

The bereaved mothers' group was established to give mothers a chance to meet others in their situation, she said. "We are mothers and we will always be mothers – mothers to children who were murdered, as well as to children who still live," she explained.

The mothers held a rally in Jerusalem on Wednesday. They stood in the cold outside the Prime Minister's residence, holding pictures of their slain children. Some of the protesters face seeing their children's murderers released in the upcoming weeks and months.

Members of the mothers' group also visited Knesset. "We're in Knesset today to ask Members of Knesset to ensure there will not be another round of terrorist release," Avraham said.

She related the pain of watching the government release terrorists again. "We work so hard to keep living, to build a happy home. As a mother I just want to protect my children... I cannot protect them in the state of Israel," she said.

"It is the job of the government and the Prime Minister to protect us, so that we can protect our children, but unfortunately there's no sense that the government of Israel is protecting us," she lamented.

American Drone Kills Four Terrorists in Pakistan.

Given that the Pakistani government has thrown in the towel, with regard to fighting their Muslim brothers in the Taliban, it is good to know that the Americans are still taking out the trash in that part of the world. At least another four terrorists have been annihilated by a drone strike in North Waziristan, yesterday, as reported by DawnNews today:

US drone kills four suspected militants in North Waziristan

At least four suspected militants were killed when a US drone fired two missiles at a compound near Miramshah, the main town of North Waziristan tribal agency of Pakistan bordering Afghanistan, DawnNews reported late Wednesday night.

The attack took place around midnight in Qutab Khel village, five kilometres (three miles) south of Miramshah.

News agency AFP, however, reported three deaths.

"A US drone fired two missiles on a militant compound, killing at least three suspected insurgents," a senior security official told AFP. A security official in Peshawar confirmed the attack and casualties.

Another official in Miramshah put the death toll at four and said a fifth militant was seriously injured.

The identities of those killed in the strike were not immediately known but officials suspect that they were of Afghan origin.

The area residents surrounded the house after the attack and pulled out the bodies, sources said, adding the bodies were charred beyond recognition.

The unmanned aircraft kept flying over the area after the strike that took place at around midnight, they said.

This was the first drone strike in the area during the month.

North Waziristan is one of seven semi-autonomous regions in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) governed by tribal laws.

The region is chiefly off-limits to reporters because of security worries and government restrictions due to which reliable casualty figures are difficult to acquire from there.

An extremist insurgency led by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) plagues the region, known to be infested with militants, including those from Al Qaeda and other armed extremist organisations.

Pakistani government criticises drone strikes as a violation of sovereignty and counterproductive to anti-terror efforts. But ties with Washington have nevertheless improved this year after lurching from crisis to crisis in 2011 and 2012.

Last month, a US drone attack on a seminary linked to the feared Haqqani militant network in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in the northwest killed at least six people.

The attack, which militant sources said killed the Haqqanis' spiritual leader along with five others, was extremely unusual as it was mounted outside Pakistan's lawless tribal areas on the Afghan border.

Even Dead Unbelievers Provoke Muslims.

"Surely those who disbelieve from among the followers of the Book & the polytheists shall be in the fire of hell, abiding therein; they are the worst of men." So says Allah, in his perfect book, the Koran, in verse 98:6. It is charming & ecumenical passages like this one that makes Islam a supremacist doctrine to rival Nazism.

As a sign that the Muslim world is becoming more confident in its supremacism & hate, the mullahs in Pakistan have now designated previously shared graveyards Muslim only. As such, they have begun inciting their backward, inbred followers to direct action when a Hindu needs burying. An example of this phenomenon is reported by DawnNews today:

Hindu burial in 'Muslim graveyard' sparks protests in Badin

The situation in Tando Bago town of Badin district became tense following the burial of a 75-year-old Hindu man, in a local graveyard of Bachal Shah.

Late on Wednesday night, a few people of the town dug the grave and took out the body a resident of village Yar Mohammad Lund, some 4 km off the Tando Bago town, who was buried by his relatives on Monday.

But the body was reburied in the same place by the local police on the wee hours of Thursday, following which the clerics belonging to various mosques of the town made announcements that a Hindu was buried again in their graveyard.

The burial infuriated the Muslim community of the town and its adjoining areas, who gathered in the town and staged a sit-in on the Bago Canal bridge.

Speaking to media persons the protesters threatened to dig out the body from the grave again.

The protesters further claimed that a decision had been reached nearly four years ago according to which Hindus would not bury their deceased in the same part of the graveyard.

It is pertinent to mention that this graveyard had been shared since many years by both the Hindus and Muslims of the area.

There was only a small wall erected by a former taluka Nazim of Tando Bago to separate the parts of the graveyard.

Strict security measures were taken by Badin's district administration to control the law and order situation in the town.

Heavy contingents of the police have been deployed in and around the graveyard under the supervision of DSP Tando Bago.

The relatives of the Hindu man, who was buried in the graveyard, spoke to Dawn.com and claimed that the deceased was buried near the grave of his father.

The people of various rights groups voiced their concern over the issue and demanded that the government functionaries should take security measures for the minority communities.

On Oct 6, in a similar incident the body of another Hindu man was dug out of the grave and thrown away, in a local graveyard of Haji Fakir in Pangrio town of Badin district.

Embarrassment for Obama as Egypt Declares Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organisation.

It has been a weird few years, everyone could see that the Muslim Brotherhood was a bunch of violent, totalitarian savages. Everyone who lived in red, brick buildings could see it. Everyone who lived in grey, concrete buildings could see it. Everyone who lived in blue glass high-rises could see it. But there was something about white houses that seemed to befuddle their inhabitants as to the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The rest of us were tearing our hair out at the spectacle of President Obama's myopia when it came to this horrible rabble of putative ayatollahs & the attendant violent tendencies. Now, however, he may be forced to see the light, because the interim Egyptian government has classified the Ikhwan a terrorist organisation, as reported by Ahram Online today (hat-tip to Julie @MsIntervention):

UPDATE: Egypt govt declares Muslim Brotherhood 'terrorist group'

An anticipated step against Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood materialises as the government officially brands the Islamist group as 'terrorist'

Egypt's interim government officially declared the Muslim Brotherhood, from which ousted president Mohamed Morsi hails, a terrorist group.

In a press statement, Minister of Higher Education Hossam Eissa said the cabinet decided the Brotherhood is a terrorist group, making it subject to Article 86 of the Egyptian penal code, which defines terrorism and the penalties for engaging in it.

Eissa mentioned that the bombing in the Delta city of Mansoura as well as attacks on churches and other violent incidents attributed to members of the group led to the decision.

Prosecutors are still investigating the Mansoura bombing, which happened Tuesday. It was claimed by the Islamist militant group Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis. It is not yet known if the group has any link to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Several leading Brotherhood members face charges of inciting violence and joining a terrorist organisation, despite that the group was not officially branded a terrorist group until Wednesday.

Brotherhood members and supporters were rounded up after the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi by the army following mass protests calling for his overthrow in July.

Two main Brotherhood-led sit-ins expressing support for Morsi were dispersed by force in August. Since then, Egypt has been hit by a wave of militant attacks on policemen and military personnel.

The Brotherhood repeatedly denied any links to militant attacks and specifically condemned the Mansoura bombing saying they have been and always will be peaceful in their quest to reverse the "coup d'├ętat."

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Islam Exposed would lie to wish all counter jihadis, people who know the hideous truth about Islam & anyone who has his head half screwed on right & isn't a goggle-eyed, sanctimonious PC wretch, a very Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Cheer, Islamic Style, Kills Thirty-Four in Iraq.

Time & again, on this site, instances of Shi'ites being slaughtered left & right in Iraq have been relayed, along with the observation that, in the absence or Christians, Hindus or Jews to persecute, Muslims have to turn on each other. Well, it turns out that there have been Christians lurking around Iraq all along but the savages in al-Qaeda have been saving them for today. How festive them. Bombs have been going off in front of churches across Baghdad, as reported by Reuters (hat-tip to The Religion of Peace):

Christmas bomb attacks kill 34 in Baghdad's Christian areas

At least 34 people were killed in bomb attacks in Christian areas of Baghdad on Wednesday, some by a car bomb that exploded near a church after a Christmas service, police and medics said.

The car bomb killed at least 24 people, most of them Christian, when worshippers were leaving the church in the Doura district of southern Baghdad, police sources said.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Violence in Iraq has risen to its worst levels in more than five years as hardline Sunni militants linked to al Qaeda step up attacks on the Shi'ite-led government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and anyone seen as supporting it. Many thousands have been killed in attacks this year.

The minority Christian community has been a target of attacks by al Qaeda militants in the past, including a 2010 attack on a church that killed dozens of people.

Two bombs also went off in a crowded market in a separate, mostly Christian area in Doura, killing another ten people, police and medics said.

At least 52 people were wounded in the attacks.

A series of car bombs, shootings and suicide attacks killed scores of Shi'ite Muslim pilgrims in the week before the Shi'ite holy day of Arbaeen, which coincided with Christmas Eve this year.

Violent Jihad Follows Rapejihad: Woolwich Savage Turns Out also to Have Been Rapist.

"When we reached Khaybar, Mohammed said that Allah had enabled him to conquer them. It was then that the beauty of Safiyah was described to him. Her husband had been killed, so Allah's Apostle selected her for himself. He took her along with him till we reached a place called Sad where her menses were over & he took her for his wife, consummating his marriage to her, & forcing her to wear the veil." So says the most trusted compilation of hadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, in volume five, book 59, number 523. This piece of holiness tells us that Mohammed was a bit rapey. Muslims do not like to be told this (& the BBC definitely doesn't.)

As Muslims are enjoined to emulate Mohammed in everything he did – he is referred to as the perfect man – we should not be surprised that someone who takes his Islamic teachings seriously enough to murder & mutilate a man in the street saw nothing wrong in sexually victimising a 14-years-old English girl, as has been reported by the Mirror on Sunday:

Lee Rigby killer Michael Adebolajo

A girl woke up to find callous Adebolajo, convicted this week of the horrific murder of the soldier, on top of her and his face an inch away

A young mum has told how one of soldier Lee Rigby's killers drugged and raped her when she was 14.

While a naive schoolgirl, evil Michael Adebolajo forced her to smoke cannabis – he then waited until she passed out then raped her.

Callous Adebolajo, convicted this week of the horrific murder of the soldier, had lured the 14-year-old to his room to satisfy his vile lust.

His victim, now a mum in her twenties, told how she became unconscious under the influence of the powerful weed. When she came round Adebolajo was on top of her carrying out his sickening sex attack.

She claimed: "I have looked into his eyes and felt the evil inside him.

"I opened my eyes and his face was less than an inch from mine. I'll never forget that moment for as long as I live.

"His teeth were discoloured and wonky. His eyes seemed to be burning. He smirked and his breath smelt foul and was hot on my face."

The terrified youngster – who we are calling Vivian, not her real name – managed to flee the room after her ordeal and ran along the street in floods of tears.

Incredibly her nightmare at the hands of Adebolajo, 29, came back to haunt her just two days before his barbaric attack on Fusilier Rigby last May.

The Islamic fanatic spotted Vivian and ordered her to get into his car. It was the vehicle he and Michael Adebowale, 22, would use to mow down the soldier near his barracks in Woolwich, South East London.

But Vivian managed to get away after pleading with him to let her go.

The following day Adebolajo texted her asking to meet up the day after that.

Vivian made an excuse. The day of the would-be meeting she was stunned to see the images of bloodstained Adebolajo clutching a meat cleaver and ranting about why he had savagely murdered Lee.

The shock drove tearful Vivian to confide in her mum for the first time about her rape ordeal in the spring of 2001 when the family lived in Romford, Essex.

Vivian told the Sunday Mirror: "I was 14 when I met Adebolajo. We lived near each other. We all used to get together in the park. He used to act nice and charming."

A few weeks before the sex attack Adebolajo kissed Vivian in the park.

She said: "He was always trying to get girls to give him a kiss. It had only happened with me once. Maybe he thought I was his girlfriend. But I didn't see it like that."

On the day of the attack, Vivian and a friend went to Adebolajo's house where he took them up to his room with a pal.

Vivian said: "The curtains were closed and the lights off. He got out some cannabis. He grinned at us and told us we were going to have a good time.

"I'd seen people smoke weed before but I'd never done it myself. I should have got the hell out of there."

Vivian allowed Adebolajo to join her under a blanket on the floor as all four passed round a joint he had rolled.

She said: "Each time it was my turn to smoke, he made me suck hard and inhale and hold it in. I thought I was grown up and cool. I started feeling woozy.

"He was laughing and saying, 'That's it, take it down. It's good stuff. It will give you a good time'."

Vivian passed out but suddenly came round to find that Adebolajo, then aged 16, was raping her.

She said: "I woke up and could feel him on top of me. I was lying flat on my back on the floor and could feel his weight. I was disoriented and felt sick.

"I opened my eyes and his face was less than an inch from mine. I'll never forget that moment for as long as I live.

"My mind begin to race and I felt panic welling up in my chest. I instinctively knew what he was doing.

"I looked down and saw that my trousers and pants were down. His friend was still in the room, watching. I pushed him off and began yanking my trousers up and wriggling out from underneath him.

"Somehow I got to my feet. I was so desperate to get out of the room. My friend had gone. I was terrified. He stepped to one side as I dashed for the door.

"I ran down the stairs and out of the front door. I ran and ran as fast as I could. I started crying."

As she neared her own house, Vivian saw her friend.

"I ran up to her and blurted everything out," she said. "I told her Michael had raped me. She was mortified she had left me."

Ten minutes later, feeling violated and racked with guilt, Vivian slipped into her home and went straight to her room.

She recalled: "My head was spinning. My instinct was to tell my parents but I couldn't. The guilt and the shame felt like too much. My dad didn't like Michael either. I wasn't even supposed to be out with him, let alone at his house.

"I got straight in the shower and cried the whole time. I got into bed and tried to sleep, but I couldn't. It felt like a little piece of me had been killed that night.

"I told myself I'd have to put it to the back of my mind and get on with my life.

"But his twisted teeth and foul breath have stayed in my memory ever since."

In a chilling chance encounter 10 years later, Vivian bumped into self-styled soldier of Islam Adebolajo, who promptly tried to ­indecently assault her.

Vivian had left Romford, where Adebolajo grew up with his Christian parents, to live in London.

She said: "I was on a train station platform when suddenly I heard his voice. My mouth went dry and I felt the same panic I'd felt all those years before."

Adebolajo, who had been arguing with another passenger, was "all smiles" when he spotted Vivian.

She said: "For some stupid reason, I felt I had to talk to him. He said, 'You look really nice.' He was eyeing me up and down and trying to be charming. He was acting as if nothing had happened between us.

"He sat opposite me on the train and asked what I'd been up to. Stupidly, I felt I had to talk to him.

"Suddenly, he said loudly, 'I've always wanted to **** you.' It was so ­embarrassing. He reached over and put a hand on my knee. He started rubbing my thigh, reaching further and further up my leg.

"I told him to stop but he just smiled, as if I was joking. I moved my bag to try and make him to stop. But he wouldn't. He kept touching me.

"Then he wanted my number. I thought about giving him a false one but he insisted on ringing it straight away to make sure it was correct.

"He leaned in to kiss me. I thought my heart was going to explode out of my chest. I let him kiss my cheek just to get rid of him.

"When I walked away, I felt dirty all over again."

Her last fateful encounter with Adebolajo came in May.

Vivian said: "He pulled up in a car alongside me – the same car he drove into Lee Rigby to knock him down before doing those awful things to him.

"I looked at him and he showed me those horrible teeth again. He told me to come over and talk to him.

"He told me to get in the passenger seat. I did and shut the door but kept my hand on the handle.

"He said in a jokey voice, 'I should drive off and take you with me.' I said, 'No, don't do that.' He then let me out."

Next day he texted Vivian suggesting they "have a good day out". Vivian said: "I texted back saying I was busy."

The following day Vivian saw the video footage of Lee Rigby's killer – and was stunned to see it was Adebolajo.

Vivian said: "I've never been able to forget what he did to me. But for what he did to that poor soldier, he deserves to rot forever.

"He didn't take my life, but he did take part of my soul.

"I want him to know that I was finally brave enough to stand up to him. Only then will I be able to really bury him in my past."
