Al-Qaeda Still Active in Yemen.

"O Prophet! Strive hard against the unbelievers & the hypocrites & be unyielding to them; & their abode is hell, & evil is the destination." Hypocrites, as mentioned in the Koran, verse 9:73, are people who only pretend to be Muslims, or Muslims who aren't loyal to the cause of jihad. Such as the soldiers trying to maintain security for the largely secular government of Yemen, fifteen of whom were killed by al-Qaeda today, as reported by Al Arabiya:

Fifteen Yemeni soldiers killed in suspected Qaeda attack

Suspected al-Qaeda militants killed 15 Yemeni soldiers on Friday when they attacked a military checkpoint in the city of Shibam in the southeastern province of Hadramawt, a security source told AFP.

"Unknown armed men suspected to be from al-Qaeda attacked an army checkpoint in Shibam, killing 15 soldiers and wounding several others," the official said on condition of anonymity.

He added there were also casualties among the attackers, but "they were able to withdraw with their dead and wounded."

He said that "Al-Qaeda took advantage of tension in Hadramawt province to carry out this cowardly attack."

Hadramawt is a stronghold for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), viewed by Washington as the most deadly affiliate of the global jihadist network, and where security forces care regularly targeted.

The province has also been hit by protests against the central government since December after the army killed a tribal chief, Said Ben Habrish, and his bodyguards.

The Hatred of the Supplicants.

"Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve, then they would not believe." So says Allah's perfect book, the Koran, in verse 8:55. Muslims know, before they have met us, that we are vile animals. It says so in their Koran, which Allah wrote, & whose original copy is inscribed on gold tablets that rest in heaven.

In the realm of race relations the immediate assumption is that it must be white people who are at fault for any discord. When people from the Muslim world arrive in the West & then catastrophically fail to integrate & regard the society in which they have landed, & upon which they have laid the burden of their upkeep, with hatred & contempt, the indigenous population are blamed. The unsuspecting English, Danish, French or Swiss people, innocent of any wrongdoing, are blamed for the bigotry of the new arrivals by dint of simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The wrong place being, of course, their own countries.

The actuality of the phenomenon of anti-European hate is that Islam teaches its adherents to despise the non-believers, they come to the West already hating us & they know to use the word 'racist' as a substitute for 'white' in the sure knowledge that the rights industry is naive enough to take their side without question. Now, an Afghan living in Sweden has had the decency to confirm this for us in an article from The Local on Tuesday (hat-tip to Tarek Fatah @TarekFatah):

'Swedes shouldn't accept being called racist'

Former Afghan public servant Zulmay Afzali feared the "racist Sweden" other asylum seekers warned him about, but instead found kindness that confused migrants and refugees who blamed everything on racism.

"They give you a false smile and pretend that they care about you. The only thing they like and care about are themselves. Swedes are the worst racists in the world."

Those were the words uttered in a conversation between four asylum seekers who were awaiting word from the Swedish authorities while living in a migrant housing facility in Alstermo, southern Sweden. The date was Thursday, March 10th, 2011.

When I lived at the residence I met very few Swedes. I started to believe that what I was hearing was true and I wondered if I'd committed the worst mistake of my life by travelling to such a racist country. Yet when I met Swedish staff at the residence facility, they were always very friendly. Why would the Swedes have to play-act pleasantries and pretend they cared about asylum seekers?

I didn't know what to believe. I only heard negative opinions about the Swedes, never anything positive. In April 2011, I was granted asylum and readied myself to go out and experience how racist the people in my new country were.

I asked others who had been granted permanent residency (permanent uppehållstillstånd – PUT) why Swedes, if they were so racist, allowed people from other countries to stay in their country and become part of their society? They said: "Just because Swedes give us a residence permit doesn't mean they are not racists! They had to give us residency because our asylum stories were so good and Sweden doesn't want to be called a racist country."

I have now lived three years in Sweden and have a completely different image of the Swedes than the one held by most other asylum immigrants that I have met and spoken with. For the past year, I have had a good job as a teacher and I support myself. From my first day in a state-funded Swedish For Immigrants (SFI) class with Swedish teachers; travelling on buses and trains; in shops and cafés; at the homes of Swedish families I have gotten to know -- in all these places I have observed how Swedes behave. So far, I have not once met anyone who comes close to displaying racism.

Unfortunately, many of my countrymen and others who have immigrated feel both hatred and contempt in their hearts for Swedes. They don't want to adapt and integrate in the land that gave them opportunities. If their social insurance payment comes one day late, they call it racism. When the bus driver asks them to show their ticket, he is a racist. If the doctor doesn't give them the medicines they want, the doctor is a racist. And so on.

The Swedish asylum process has to become strict, clear, and consistent, and the Swedes should not accept being called racists on such flimsy grounds. If they do, they will become hostages in their own country, and the contempt that refugees feel risks growing.

Most refugees are used to public servants and teachers in their home countries being authoritarian, rather than nearly self-effacing, which is an approach many of them encounter here. The Swedish kindness, the way it is expressed in how Sweden handles refugees and integration, confuses many new arrivals and creates a bad foundation for building mutual trust and respect.

Blair Gets It Right on Ousting of Muslim Brotherhood.

During his tenure as our Prime Minister, Tony Blair infuriated many people: sexing up dossiers to go to war in Iraq, abolishing the offence of treason, selling off the UK's gold reserves at rock-bottom prices & trawling the world to bring two million immigrants into the country for no easily discernible reason. It therefore irritates me to have to say that he has it right, when he says that the Muslim Brotherhood was leading Egypt back into the dark ages & that Morsi had to be removed. If only Barack Obama could be so rational & clear-sighted.

The outcome of Mr Blair's recent meeting with General al-Sisi is related in this report from The Guardian yesterday:

Tony Blair backs Egypt's government and criticises Brotherhood

Former British PM says Muslim Brotherhood was stealing Egypt's revolution and army intervention has put it on right path

Tony Blair has given staunch backing to Egypt's government following a meeting on Wednesday with its army leader, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.

In a television interview on Thursday morning, Britain's former prime minister said Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood had stolen Egypt's revolution, and the army who deposed him last July had put the country back on the path to democracy.

"This is what I say to my colleagues in the west," said Blair, visiting Egypt as a representative of the UN, the US, the EU and Russia in their attempts to mediate the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. "The fact is, the Muslim Brotherhood tried to take the country away from its basic values of hope and progress. The army have intervened, at the will of the people, but in order to take the country to the next stage of its development, which should be democratic. We should be supporting the new government in doing that."

Morsi, Egypt's first freely elected president, was removed by Sisi following days of mass protests. His many critics said Morsi had authoritarian leanings and that his removal was essential to prevent Egypt from eventually turning into an autocratic theocracy.

Blair
al-Sisi
Morsi

Rights groups say the government that replaced him has been anything but democratic – with more than a thousand dissidents killed, thousands more arrested, and the right to free assembly and free speech severely curbed. The day before Blair's comments were aired, 20 journalists were referred to court on terrorism allegations – charges a leading rights lawyer said returned Egypt to the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak.

Blair's office did not respond to a query about how the west could promote democracy without criticising lapses in democratic values.

In his television interview, he said: "Right here in Egypt I think it is fundamental that the new government succeeds, that we give it support in bringing in this new era for the people of Egypt. And, you know, we can debate the past and it's probably not very fruitful to do so, but right now I think it's important the whole of the international community gets behind the leadership here and helps."

Blair's comments are in keeping with his previous comments on the region. In the past, he has been supportive of autocratic rulers toppled during the 2011 revolutions such as Hosni Mubarak and Libya's Muammar Gaddafi. His comments drew criticism from other British-based Middle East specialists.

"The Middle East is a huge region and cannot be broken down into simplistic black-and-white realities, into blocks of good and evil, or as one picture as Tony Blair continually promotes," said Chris Doyle, director of the Council for Arab-British Understanding.

"Too often the peoples in the region are presented a false choice between religious-based parties such as the Brotherhood and secular dictatorship. We should reject that. For sure the Muslim Brotherhood under Morsi failed to deliver but neither are the current Egyptian authorities [delivering].

"Dangerously, Blair and others are turning a blind eye to the suppression of human rights, the widespread arrests, the crackdown on freedom of media and the absence of rule of law. These bear the hallmarks of the security state dictatorship under Mubarak, a man Blair described in 2011 as a 'force for good' even as his [the former dictator's] security forces were killing Egyptians in the streets."

At the time of Mubarak's overthrow in 2011, Blair warned that his removal would lead to the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood: "They are extremely well organised and well funded whereas those people who are out on the street at the moment, many of them will be extremely well intentioned people but they're not organised in political parties yet."

The naivety of Mr Doyle is staggering, he sounds like a candidate for Obama's advisory team. When the Muslim Brotherhood 'failed to deliver' anything it was because they had no intention of delivering it, be it personal freedom, economic freedom or prosperity. They are an Islamist party whose goal is to drag humanity back to the seventh century & are prepared to use terror to this end. This is why the regime is making so many arrests, the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organisation. It only takes a glance at the Brotherhood's logo & strap line to apprehend their malign intentions:

Al Jazeera's Sins Find Them Out.

Listening to the English language output of the Al Jazeera channel one can imagine that it is a perfectly balanced & reasonable news organisation. However, it is widely observed that the Arabic section is little more than a mouthpiece of the Muslim Brotherhood. The head of the Muslim Brotherhood, Youssef al-Qaradawi himself, has a regular slot on the wretched channel & it has been observed that Al Jazeera cameramen have been present at terrorist bombings with their equipment set up before the actual explosions.

It should come as no surprise then, that the Egyptian regime should clamp down on this organisation, as reported by the New York Times yesterday (hat-tip to Julie @MsIntervention):

20 Al Jazeera Journalists Face Charges in Egypt

CAIRO — Egyptian prosecutors said on Wednesday that they were charging 20 journalists working for the Al Jazeera television network with conspiring with a terrorist group and broadcasting false images of "a civil war that raises alarms about the state's collapse."

The charges are the latest turn in a widening clampdown on public dissent by the military-backed government that ousted President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood six months ago. The government has outlawed the Brotherhood, declared it a terrorist organization, jailed its leaders and killed more than a thousand of its supporters in the streets. Foreign Ministry and state information service officials say that they cannot be certain whether merely publishing an interview with a Brotherhood representative may now be a crime.

Al Jazeera, a satellite news channel owned by Qatar, is virtually the only major Arabic-language news outlet available in Egypt that is sympathetic to the Brotherhood and critical of the government. After Mr. Morsi's ouster, security forces moved to shut down most other Egyptian news media outlets aligned with him and the Brotherhood, and the remaining privately owned news organizations have almost all cheered for the government's bloody crackdown on the Islamists.

Al Jazeera was the notable exception, and it has been the target of a campaign by the government, which has closed down the network's newsrooms in the country and denounced the network as a terrorist tool.

The prosecutors' statement describing the charges against the 20 journalists accuses them of manipulating video footage "to produce unreal scenes to suggest abroad that what is happening in the country is a civil war that raises alarms about the state's collapse." The statement said the defendants had broadcast the images over Al Jazeera "to assist the terrorist group" — the Brotherhood — "in achieving its purpose of influencing international public opinion."

Sixteen of the 20 defendants are Egyptians; they were charged with "joining a terrorist group" with the purpose of "damaging national security and social peace." The four foreigners — two British, one Australian and one Dutch — were charged with collaborating with the Egyptian defendants, in part by providing money, equipment and information.

The statement appears to say that all the defendants were also charged with "possession of documents and recordings promoting the group" and with operating communications equipment without a permit.

If convicted, each of the defendants could be sentenced to several years in prison.

The prosecutors said that eight of the 20 defendants were in custody and that the rest were "fugitives." They did not announce the defendants' names.

Of the eight, the authorities have been holding five Al Jazeera journalists without charges — at least three of them since late December and at least one since August. The Committee to Protect Journalists says that there are three other journalists in jail awaiting charges, but they are not believed to work for Al Jazeera.

"The world knows these allegations against our journalists are absurd, baseless and false," Al Jazeera said in a statement. "This is a challenge to free speech, to the right of journalists to report on all aspects of events, and to the right of people to know what is going on."

The State Department spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, said Egypt should reconsider the prosecution. "The government's targeting of journalists and others on spurious claims is wrong and demonstrates an egregious disregard for the protection of basic rights and freedoms," she said.

One of the detained journalists, Abdullah Elshami, 25, is now on the 10th day of a hunger strike, according to his brother, Mosa'ab Elshami. Abdullah Elshami has been held since Aug. 20.

Another is Mohamed Fahmy, 40, an Egyptian-Canadian producer for Al Jazeera's English language news network. His family and colleagues say that he has been held in solitary confinement and has been denied treatment for a shoulder injury he sustained before his arrest.

Shari'ah Censorship in the UK.

When Maajid Nawaz tweeted an innocuous cartoon of Jesus & Mohammed & incurred the wrath of various mediahedin such as Mohammed Ansar & Mohammed Shafiq, I did not comment upon the fiasco for the very simple reason that I could not be bothered. It seemed to me to be the epitome of trivia.

Now, with the interview conducted yesterday by Jon Snow on Channel 4 News with the aforementioned Mr Shafiq, I feel compelled to raise a few points.

First, the interview:

Firstly, it is laughable that Channel 4 lacked the guts to even show the Mohammed part of the cartoon, such cowardice. No wonder Muslims think they can take over the West without a fight.

While squirming like a worm on a hook over the fact that he tried to put Mr Nawaz in mortal danger, Mr Shafiq contends that it is inappropriate for a Lib Dem candidate to offend so many Muslims in such a way. "This is not about freedom of speech – this is about the behaviour of a parliamentary candidate" says Mr Shafiq. It is a pity that Mr Snow did not ask him how appropriate it was for same to set up a Rochdale Online Forum account under a false name in order to smear political colleagues & aggrandise himself, as Mr Shafiq did in 2008.

In a last twist to the tale, the whole thing is starting to look like a publicity stunt after the two issued a joint statement saying nothing very much.

Finally, if Muslims were so offended by the frankly insipid Jesus & Mo cartoon then what, pray, are they going to make of these:

Jihad against Educated Women.

"'O womenfolk, you should ask for forgiveness for I saw you in bulk amongst the dwellers of Hell.' A wise lady said: 'Why is it, Allah's Apostle, that women comprise the bulk of the inhabitants of Hell?' The Prophet observed: 'You curse too much & are ungrateful to your spouses. You lack common sense, fail in religion & rob the wisdom of the wise.' Upon this the woman remarked: 'What is wrong with our common sense?' The Prophet replied, 'Your lack of common sense can be determined from the fact that the evidence of two women is equal to one man. That is a proof.'" As that excerpt from Mohammed's example demonstrates, as recorded in Sahih Muslim, book one, number 142, is that women are second class citizens in an Islamic state.

Women know nothing, according to the man who Muslims believe to be the ultimate example of perfection, to be imitated by all Muslim males. Thus, a woman teaching at a university (probably without wearing a head covering) contradicts the word of al-insan al-kamil which was likely the motivation for the three goons who threw acid at a female lecturer in Pakistan as reported by The Express Tribune today (hat-tip to The Religion of Peace):

Crime against women: Lecturer attacked with acid

Three men threw acid at a University of Management and Technology lecturer on Tuesday. District Superintedent Anwer Saeed Kingra of Chuhng police said Faiza Ashraf* was attacked near her home in the Pakistan Council for Scientific and Industrial Research Housing Society.

Police said that Ashraf had taken a rickshaw from the university and was entering her home when unidentified men threw a polythene bag filled with concentrated acid at her. The DSP said that the bag hit the door and only a small amount of the acid came into contact with her face.

Witnesses said that the three assailants were riding two motorcycles.

The woman was taken to the Jinnah Hospital by a Rescue 1122 team where doctors said that 20 per cent of her face had been affected. Doctors treating her said the acid had affected her eyes.

They said it was too early to say whether or not her eyesight had been affected. A Jinnah Hospital assistant medical superintendent said she would likely survive.

Police said that her father had submitted a complaint at the Sattukatla police station, but had not named a suspect. They said an FIR would be registered after they recorded her statement. Her father said she was going to be married next month. Health Minister Khawaja Salman Rafique also visited the hospital and directed doctors to take special care of the woman. He assured the victim’s family that the government would bear the cost of her treatment.

Assassination Attempt in Tripoli.

"Truly, if the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them & set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbours for any length of time. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized & slain without mercy – a fierce slaughter – murdered, a horrible murdering." People who only pretend to be Muslim, people who pay Islam lip-service & do not appear to take it terribly seriously are called hypocrites in this verse from the Koran (33:60) & we see that they are due a 'horrible murdering.'

This goes ten-fold for secular politicians in countries where jihadists are attempting to create an Islamic state, as illustrated in this report from Al Arabiya today:

Libyan interior minister escapes assassination

Libyan Interior Minister Sadiq Abdulkarim escaped unscathed on Wednesday from an assassination attempt in Tripoli, according to the prime minister's office.

Abdelkarim, who is also the deputy prime minister, was in his car when "unknown gunmen fired a barrage of bullets" at the vehicle, Agence France-Presse reported, clarifying that no one was killed or wounded during the attack.

The incident was confirmed by the head of the minister's office, al-Bahlul al-Sid who did not give any further details, according to AFP.

The interior minister was on his was to to [sic] parliament when his car was fired upon, according to the prime minister's office.

Wednesday's attack comes less than three weeks after the assassination of deputy industry minister Hassan al-Droui, who was shot in the northern city of Sirte on Jan. 12.

The 2011 uprising left Libya awash in weapons looted from former leader Muammar Qaddafi's vast arsenals, complicating the government's efforts to rein in former rebels who effectively control much of the country.

Libya has seen near-daily attacks on security forces, particularly in and around the eastern city of Benghazi, cradle of the 2011 revolt.

Gibbering Paranoia Emanates from Iranian Regime.

"Allah's Apostle said, 'If a fly falls in your drink, dip all of it into the cup & then throw it away, for in one of its wings there is a disease & in the other there is healing, an antidote or treatment for that disease.'" That was the most trusted compilation of hadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, in volume seven, book 71, number 673. Those people who claim that Islam is all about power, hatred & violence really don't do it justice, there's a lot of idiocy as well.

Thus, if a faithful Muslim wants to remain faithful he has to learn not to think too hard or too much. Ask a Muslim: "If the Koran is preserved on gold tablets up in heaven, does that include the two suras that Aisha left on her bed & were eaten by a goat?" Nope, not allowed to think about that.

Some Muslims have got really good at the whole not thinking game. Too good, in fact, which is why Islamic organisations & governments are prone to the most delirious pronouncements in furtherance of their equally swivel-eyed goals.

In the run-up to the third intifada the Iranian organ PressTV is, of course, talking up the paranoia with regard Jerusalem & the Palestinians but cannot rid itself of its obsession with Saudi Arabia in this article on Sunday (hat-tip to Elder of Ziyon):

KSA behind Israel plans to replace al-Aqsa with temple: Analyst

Saudi Arabia is supporting the Israeli regime in its plan to replace the holy al-Aqsa Mosque with a temple, an analyst tells Press TV in an interview.

Saab Shaath was talking to Press TV on Saturday, one day after Israeli Minister of Housing and Construction Uri Ariel called for the construction of what he called "the Third Temple" to replace the holy site.

"Al-Aqsa Mosque is currently in place of the temple," Ariel claimed.

Shaath said Saudi Arabia has always provided support for the Zionist regime's anti-Palestinian moves and "offered under-the-table support for Israel in their alliance against Syria."

"The only thing, which will stop the Israelis from going that far, is the Arab-Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip and in Lebanon," he said.

Shaath said Israel intends to "secure as much as they can from territories in the West Bank."

"And they will go as far as the destruction of the existing al-Aqsa Mosque since now they see the Arabic masses got used to the desecration of religious sites as we notice in Syria by the Takfiri groups and the Arab masses have been shut enough to keep it quiet, that's what they believe," he added.

Al-Aqsa Mosque is considered the third holiest site in the Muslim world.

Palestinians have denounced the Israeli plan as desecration. They say it is part of the Israeli regime's ongoing attempts to distort the Arab and Islamic history.

Palestinians argue that al-Quds is the capital of a future Palestinian independent state, and that its heritage should remain intact.

Was the Humanitarian Crisis in Syria a Deliberate Tactic by Al-Qaeda?

Muslims have been very good at exploiting the civilities & sensibilities of the West, in order to advance their agenda: using offence & charges of racism to curtail the freedom of speech, citing religious needs to extract special resources – prayer rooms, foot-baths – from institutions, crying discrimination to deflect the attention of security services etc. The West is quite predictable &

With the horror of Syria creating what is alleged to be the most catastrophic humanitarian crisis in history, could it be that this was engineered by the jihadists, specifically to provoke Western governments into importing thousands of Levantines into the West without too much scrutiny or paperwork? They seem to have spent more time & resources attacking civilians than combatting Assad's forces.

The purpose, of course, would be to create another route for terrorists to enter the civilised world to create carnage & mayhem. They are already training Western citizens in Syria to send back to the West for jihad, hiding Syrian, Iraqi & Lebanese jihadists amongst genuinely desperate victims clamouring to be saved would not be beneath them.

It is to be hoped that those in government have already thought of this &, certainly, the tenor of this report concerning 'vulnerable refugees' (read women & children) from the MailOnline today (hat-tip to The Religion of Peace) suggests that they have:

Britain will open its doors to 'vulnerable Syrian refugees', Home Secretary Theresa May is expected to announce

  • An official announcement could be made as early as tomorrow
  • Parliament is set to debate the UK's part in a UN refugees programme
  • Mechanism is already in place to help Syrians with existing ties to UK

Britain is planning to open its doors to 'vulnerable Syrian refugees', it was revealed last night.

An announcement could be made as early as tomorrow to coincide with a Parliamentary debate on the UK's participation in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees programme.

Home Secretary Theresa May told MPs yesterday she was 'working with the Foreign Secretary, William Hague to look at what further support can be provided by this Government and further announcements on that will be made'.

She said Britain had opened its doors to 'several thousand asylum seekers' since the chaotic civil war began and said there was a 'mechanism already in place to facilitate helping Syrian refugees with existing family ties in the UK to settle here.

Labour and the UKiP have been increasing pressure on Mrs May over the UK's response to the crisis.

Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper urged Mrs May to allow the UK to provide shelter for 'the minority of refugees who - the UN and others have made clear - are too vulnerable to come or to survive even in the camps, and that is why it's so important to provide that extra help'.

Mrs May replied: 'This is an issue which is of concern to people across this whole House, and the Government is looking at what is the most appropriate way for us to provide support and enhance support that we are already giving.'

She defended the UK's record on helping Syrian refugees 'and the amount of money that we are providing in humanitarian aid'.

Her comments come after Mr Hague said the Prime Minister David Cameron did 'open the door' to the possibility of vulnerable Syrian refugees being welcome in the UK.

'It's encouraging to hear that the Government is listening to calls for it to accept resettled refugees from Syria,' Maurice Wren, chief executive of the Refugee Council, told journalists.

He added: 'The Government must act without further delay to secure safe passage for the people who are struggling to survive in the harsh conditions in the region.'

Political Correctness Gone... Just Gone, in American Talk Radio.

What a boon it must be to have a constitution, written down (something we never got round to) & guaranteeing the freedom of speech in its very first amendment. Not for the Americans the pussy-footing around, trying not to offend anyone, cringing in almost totalitarian self-censorship, in fear of prosecution for 'incitement' or 'hate-speech'.

Embedded below is an excerpt from a phone-in hosted by an unknown broadcaster on an unknown radio station. It was posted to YouTube in 2008 but I only became aware of it recently (hat-tip to NO BIGOTRY @nobigotry.)

A Muslim caller gets extremely short shrift from the host when discussing the evil, cultish nature of Islam & the list of atrocities committed in its name, in comparison with the Danish cartoons. The Muslim has nothing to say in the face of this tirade & it really is heartwarming to hear.

Now compare that with an episode of Any Answers broadcast on BBC Radio4 on 12th May 2012 in which the Rochdale child abuse scandal was discussed. My contribution starts at 27:40, I'm the final caller. Just listen to the host, that indictment of the hereditary principle that is Jonathan Dimbleby, have an aneurysm when I mention that Mohammed was a rapist (as he was.)

Ask yourself which society is the healthier & which is more likely to resist Islamic takeover.

In case you were wondering how it is that we know Mohammed was ever so slightly rapey, here are a few extracts from the sunna to demonstrate the point:

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. Sahih Bukhari 5:59:523

The Muslims said among themselves, 'Will Safiyah be one of the Prophet's wives or just a lady captive & one of his possessions?' Sahih Bukhari 5:59:524

From the captives of Hunayn, Allah's Messenger gave Ali a slave girl called Baytab & he gave Uthman a slave girl called Zaynab & Umar another. Sirat Rasulallah 593

Fatah's Second Banana Calls for Third Intifada.

"But you Jews went back on your word & were lost losers. You know that you have broken the sanctity of the Sabbath, so We said: 'Become monkeys despised & hated.' We made this punishment an example and a warning for those who fear Allah." Jews don't fair terribly well in the Koran (that was verse 2:64.) Jews don't fair terribly well with Islam generally.

It is a fact not widely acknowledged that Muslins do not hate Jews because of Israel, they hate Israel because of Jews. There will never be peace between Israelis & Palestinians as long as Islam holds sway over the minds of the Palestinians.

Despite the fact that the Balfour Declaration created an Arab state (there were no such people as 'Palestinians' then) out of the 77% of British Mandated Palestine east of the river Jordan (a country now called Jordan) & a Jewish state out of the 23% west of the river Jordan (now Israel) the genocidal Islamic population are determined to chisel away at the West Bank & Gaza Strip (rightfully Israeli) until Israel is impossible to defend.

A panjandrum inside the Fatah organisation is banging the drum for another uprising when they don't get their second Arab state in Palestine, as reported by Israel Hayom yesterday:

Abbas aide: Palestinians should resume armed resistance

Tawfiq Tirawi, who serves as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' security adviser, says peace talks are doomed to fail, warns both sides should prepare for security escalation • "We have never forsaken the path of armed resistance," he says.

Senior Fatah official Tawfiq Tirawi, who serves as Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' security adviser, said Sunday that the Palestinians should embark on a violent uprising in the West Bank and resume their "armed resistance."

"As things stand, we won't have a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip even 20 years from now. Therefore, we should consider resuming the path of armed resistance. Maybe that will bring about change," Tirawi told the Lebanese news channel Al-Mayadeen.

Tirawi, the PA's former intelligence chief, stressed that the Palestinian will not agree to the outline currently promoted by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and warned that both the Palestinians and Israel should prepare for the security escalation that is sure to follow.

"All Palestinian factions agree that we must reject Kerry's plan. We cannot accept any of the principles detailed in it … We have to work towards an agreement that would include all of the [Palestinian] factions -- those under the PLO's leadership and those external to it," he said, referring to Hamas and the Islamic Jihad.

Asked whether resuming violence does not counter the principles set by Abbas himself following the Second Intifada, Tirawi noted that the Palestinians "have never forsaken the path of diplomacy, just like we have never forsaken the path of armed resistance, which is an inseparable part of how we work."

Fatah, he noted, "does not dismiss any path that may help us realize the Palestinian vision of having an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital."

Tirawi's statement was recently reiterated by PLO Executive Committee Secretary-General Yasser Abed Rabbo, who also said that the PA intends to reject Kerry's plan.

Tirawi
Kerry
Abed Rabbo

According to Abed Rabbo, Kerry's proposal outlines a Palestinian state "with no logical territorial continuous, no borders and no capital.

"This plan was formed by Israel according to its own political and security interests, with aim of leaving the occupation's army on Palestinian land for many years to come, with no consideration of Palestinian sovereignty," he said.

Massacre of Seventy-Four Civilians in Nigeria.

"O Prophet! Urge the believers to war; if there are twenty patient ones of you they shall overcome two hundred, & if there are a hundred of you they shall overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they are a people who do not understand." That was the perfect & final word of Allah, as set down in the Koran, verse 8:65. For all those of us who still believe that Islamic terrorism is something that we in the West have brought upon ourselves, I can only say that they are people who do not understand.

The light may dawn upon their befuddled minds if they would care to consider what possible crimes against the Islamic world the Christian villagers across northeast Nigeria could have committed, to be slaughtered by the dozen by Boko Haram over the weekend, as reported by the BBC six hours ago (hat-tip to Julie @MsIntervention):

Nigeria 'Boko Haram' attacks leave scores dead

Suspected Islamist militants have attacked two villages in north-eastern Nigeria, leaving 74 people dead, say police and witnesses.

Militants attacked Kawuri village in Borno state as a busy market was packing up on Sunday, setting off explosives and setting houses ablaze.

Witnesses said 52 people were killed in that attack, while 22 died in an attack on a church service in Waga Chakawa village, Adamawa state, on Sunday.

The attacks were blamed on Boko Haram.

The Islamist group - whose name means "Western education is forbidden" - is especially active in north-eastern Nigeria.

Borno and Adamawa are two of three north-eastern states - along with Yobe - put under emergency rule last May, as the military attempts to combat the insurgency.

'No house left standing'

Gunmen planted explosive devices around Kawuri village prior to the attack, said a witness and security official.

They also killed civilians in their homes, dozens of which were set ablaze in the attack.

"No house was left standing," Ari Kolomi, who fled from the village to Maiduguri, the Borno state capital, some 70km (43 miles) away, told AP news agency.

"The gunmen were more than 50 [in number]; they were using explosives and heavy-sounding guns."

Mr Kolomi said he did not yet know if his relatives had survived the attack.

Earlier on Sunday in neighbouring Adamawa state, gunmen attacked a busy church service in Waga Chakawa village, an army spokesman said.

They set off bombs and fired into the congregation, killing 22 people, before burning houses and taking residents hostage during a four-hour siege, witnesses told Reuters news agency.

The army suspects Boko Haram of being behind both attacks.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan sacked his military high command earlier this month.

No reason was given, but the move came amid concern that Boko Haram have been able to continue their bloody campaign despite the wide-ranging powers given to the military to tackle the insurgency last year.

Since the state of emergency was imposed in May, UN figures suggest more than 1,200 people have been killed in Islamist-related violence.
