Mass Graves Unearthed in Sinjar.

"And fight with them until there is no more persecution & religion should be only for Allah; but if they desist, then surely Allah sees what they do." So Allah tells his brain-dead believers, in the book that would be laughable had it not inspired more murder across the world than Mein Kampf, the Koran, in verse 8:39. 'Them' refers, of course, to us, the unbelievers. We have to be fought until religion is only for Allah. That is, we either have to convert to the sick ideology of Islam or be killed. This is why we see mass murder of unbelievers wherever Islam holds sway.

Thus it is with the Yazidis, who are in the process of being extirpated from their homelands by the Islamic State. Eventually one has to ask: "Precisely when do we start describing this systematic extermination as the Yazidi Genocide?" Finds such as the mass graves unearthed in Sinjar, reported by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty today (hat-tip to Julie Lenarz @MsIntervention) surely bring us closer to that day:

Iraqi Kurdish Official Says Nine Yazidi Mass Graves Found In Sinjar

An Iraqi Kurdish regional official says Kurdish Peshmerga forces have discovered nine mass graves containing members of the Yazidi minority thought to have been executed by Islamic State (IS) militants in the northern town of Sinjar.

Khairy Buzani, the Kurdish regional official in charge of Yezidi affairs, said on December 30 that the graves have been discovered in Sinjar since Peshmerga fighters recaptured the twon [sic] from IS militants earlier in December.

He not say how many people were buried in the graves.

Hundreds, possibly thousands, of Yazidis are thought to have been killed when IS militants overran Sinjar in August.

Tens of thousands were either stranded on the nearby Mount Sinjar or fled to Kurdish-held parts of northern Iraq.

Amnesty International says Yazidi women and girls who were abducted, raped, forced into marriage, or sold as slaves to IS fighters could number in the thousands.

Former Islamic State Sex Slaves Return Traumatised. Almost 1600 Remain in Captivity.

  1. 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.
  2. The Muslims said among themselves, "Will Safiyah be one of the Prophet's wives or just a lady captive & one of his possessions?"

So says the most trusted compilation of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, in volume five, book 59. This shows that Mohammed was a rapist, who captured non-Muslim women & held them as sex slaves. As this disgusting sex criminal is considered al-insan al-khamil - the prime example of Islamic conduct - Muslims feel able to copy this revolting behaviour. This is why Muslims are preeminent in our sex crime statistics in the West. It is also why the Islamic State in Iraq & Syria & Boko Haram in Nigeria see fit to kidnap non-Muslim women & hold them captive for the same purposes.

Those of us who pay attention to the news & do not filter out those reports that do not fit the politically correct consensus are now nauseatingly familiar with the phenomenon of Islamic sexual slavery. It does, however, go a lot further than mere rape. The above hadith narration glosses over, somewhat, the circumstances of Safiyah's husband's death. The horrific details are given in the earliest account of Mohammed's life, Sirat Rasul Allah - The Path of the Messenger of Allah - in Chapter 20, Khaybar:

"Kinana, the husband of Safiyah, had been guardian of the tribe's treasures, & he was brought before the apostle, who asked where they were hidden. But Kinana refused to disclose the place. Then a Jew came who said, 'I have seen Kinana walk around a certain ruin every morning.' The apostle asked Kinana, 'Art thou prepared to die if we find thou knewest where the treasure was?' And he replied, 'Yes.' So the apostle ordered the ruin to be dug up, & some of the treasure was found. After that Kinana was asked again about the remainder, but he still refused to tell. The apostle of Allah handed him over to al-Zubayr, saying, 'Torture him until he tells what he knows', & al-Zubayr kindled a fire on his chest so that he almost expired; then the apostle gave him to Mohammed bin Maslama, who struck off his head."

We can only assume that similar heinous brutality occurred in Iraq, whereby the Yazidi women were kidnapped. Imagine it, your husband, brothers, father murdered in front of you, then his or their killers snatching you up & carting you off to be repeatedly raped. Traumatised is not the word, as used in this report from Rudaw today:

Official report: thousands of Yezidis still in ISIS captivity

The Iraqi Human Rights Committee (IHRC) says that more than 3,500 Yezidi men and women have been captured by the Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq since it began attacks on the religious minority in early August.

The committee, which is associated with the Iraqi parliament, says that 441 Yezidis, including 280 females, have so far been rescued.

"We have confirmed knowledge of 1,597 females and 1,986 males who are still in ISIS captivity and who are identified as Yezidis," said Boshra Ubaidi, an IHRC spokeswoman at a press conference in Baghdad Monday.

Ubaidi called on Kurdish and Iraqi authorities to "reincorporate" the Yezidis into their communities, saying they had suffered "severe physical and psychological traumas."

Kurdish lawmakers say they have developed a compensation package that will help affected Yezidi families "back to normal life." Maryam Samad, a member of the Kurdish parliament in Erbil, says the package includes both economic compensation and also the possibility of asylum in Germany, where an estimated 100,000 Yezidis already live.

Authorities in Kurdistan fear for the social stigmatization that could haunt the women in their communities after ISIS captivity and alleged sexual assaults.

"We have been in discussion with the German authorities regarding the traumatized Yezidi women and they have accepted to grant them asylum," Samad told Rudaw.

Some Kurdish officials maintain, however, that victims have been treated affectionately by their communities, "with no risk of stigmatization."

"I am overwhelmed by the way fellow Yezidis have shown extraordinary respect for these brave women," said Nuri Osman, special coordinator for Yezidi refugees in the Kurdistan Regional Government, who in an earlier Rudaw interview indicated that 234 Yezidis had been freed from the clutches of the Islamic State, 150 of them females and many as young as 12.

"They are respected and warmly accepted back into their communities. They are not being stigmatized, and it's a moment of pride and joy," added Osman, himself a Kurdish Muslim from Shingal.

Kurdish MP Samad maintains that, according to their investigations, more than 3,600 females alone are still in ISIS captivity and those who have been freed are in "dreadful shape."

"We have met with 200 of the 343 rescued women and noted that they are in great despair and suffer from severe psychological traumas," Samad said.

Medieval Torture Device Resurrected by Islamic State Savages.

Lack of originality is a recurring theme with any totalitarian regime. It was a favourite anecdote of the late Christopher Hitchens that, upon arrival in communist era Czechoslovakia, he vowed to avoid any reference to Franz Kafka in subsequent writings. Having been arrested by the Státní bezpečnost, the secret police, during a house visit to the then little known poet-activist Václav Havel, he asked the goon holding him against the wall what the charge was.
"We shall decide later what the charge is." Replied the churlish custodian of the workers' paradise. Upon which Mr Hitchens thought: Fuck, now I have to mention Kafka.

So is also the case with the Islamic State, as it enforces shari'ah law in the benighted territory it rules. Often described as medieval, this foul organisation has actually resurrected a medieval instrument of torture, the 'spider' or 'breast ripper' as reported by Metro News today:

Isis use torture device dubbed 'The Biter' to impale women who breastfeed in public

The female arm of Isis tortured a woman by impaling her breast with a spiked clamp dubbed 'The Biter' after they caught her nursing her child in public.

'The Biter', which descriptions suggest is similar to a Medieval torture tool called the 'Breast Ripper' or 'Spider', is a claw-like device with spikes or 'teeth' on the end which was used in the Middle Ages to rip off or shred the breasts of women accused of adultery, abortion or other perceived crimes.

And the Al-Khansa brigade, which is said to include British nationals, has adopted the instrument in their quest to impose strict Sharia law on women in the proclaimed Isis capital of Raqqa, Syria.

Residents in the city say that a woman discovered nursing her child at the city's bus station screamed in pain as Al-Khansa militants used the device on her, while a second woman, aged 24, said she was tortured for wearing a partially see-through Niqab.

'They arrested me and escorted me to the torture chamber,' she said.

'Then they asked me to choose between a whip and a biter. I did not know what a biter was and I thought it is a reduced sentence, I was afraid of whipping, so I choose the biter.

'Then they brought a sharp object that had a lot of teeth and held me, placing it on my chest and pressing it strongly. I screamed from the pain. They later took me to hospital.

'I felt then that my femininity had been destroyed completely.'

Yet Another Jamaat-e-Islami War Criminal to Hang in Bangladesh.

"Though God promised that one of two columns (would fall to you), you desired the one that was not armed. But God wished to confirm the truth by His words, & wipe the unbelievers out to the last." This is what the spittle-saturated rock in Mecca, Allah, says to his rabid followers, in the most repulsive book ever written, the Koran, in verse 8:7. We may deduce from this that Islam could be ever so slightly genocidal.

Of course, if we simply look at history, we find ample confirmation for this deduction. The Armenian Genocide, the Assyrian Genocide, the Smirna Massacre, the pogroms against the Jews in Hebron & Safed & the Bengal Genocide all point to a vicious dedication to extirpation. It is, therefore, refreshing to observe the secular establishment of Bangladesh sentencing yet another verminous member of Jamaat-e-Islami to death by hanging, for his participation in the aforementioned Bengal Genocide, as reported by Deutsche Welle today:

Bangladesh Islamist politician sentenced to death for war crimes
A tribunal in Bangladesh has sentenced a senior member of the Islamist party to death for atrocities committed during the country's 1971 independence war. He is the 16th person to be convicted in the war crimes inquiry.

The war crimes tribunal handed down its decision in Dhaka on Tuesday, after finding A.T.M Azharul Islam guilty of five out of six charges including abduction, torture, rape and the mass killing unarmed civilians.

A three-member panel of judges ordered he be "hanged by the neck" for the genocide of more than 1,200 people in the northern district of Rangpur during the 1971 war for independence from Pakistan.

The prosecutor argued Islam, the assistant secretary general of the Jamaat-e-Islami party, was previously a commander of Al-Badr militia group, which teamed up with Pakistan's military to crack down on fighters campaigning for Bangladesh's independence.

"No doubt, it was mass murder," presiding judge Enayetur Rahim told a packed court.

Defence lawyer Tajul Islam rejected the charges and said he would lodge an appeal against the verdict.

"Azharul Islam was a 19-year-old student during the war and in no way was involved in war crime. The charges against him are false and fabricated," the lawyer said.

Inquiry into war crimes

Islam
Hasina
Bangladesh became part of Pakistan at the end of British rule in 1947, but broke away in 1971 after a war between India-backed Bangladeshi nationalists and Pakistani forces. According to official figures, around 3 million people died during the nine-month conflict. An estimated 200,000 women were raped and about 10 million people were forced to take shelter in refugee camps in neighboring India.

In 2010, Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina opened an inquiry into war crimes committed during the independence war. Islam is the 16th person to be convicted by these tribunals.

While Hasina has called the tribunals a long-overdue effort to get justice for victims' families, Jamaat-e-Islami - a key part of the opposition coalition which openly campaigned against independence - says the trials are politically motivated and aim to persecute its leadership.

Islamic State Executes Foreign Fighters with Cold Feet.

"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." So says Allah the moon god, in his miraculous & perfect tome of trash, the Koran, in verse 33:60.

'Hypocrites' refers to those individuals who profess to be Muslims but do not really make the grade. Perhaps they do not hate the unbeliever with the requisite vehemence, or they even have unbelieving friends when there is no need to keep up the pretence of peaceful Islam. Maybe they fail to follow the shariat with the mind-numbing dedication of an automaton or display an unseemly squeamishness when it comes to cold-blooded murder.

Any of these things could result in a horrible murdering for the lukewarm Muslim. So it is for the poor wannabe jihadists, gone off to wage war for Allah in Syria, then to discover that murder is horrid, blood is sticky, Allah is make-believe, or maybe they just miss their mums. Such people are judged hypocrites by the Islamic State &, among many others, horribly murdered, as reported by MailOnline today:

Islamic State 'has executed 116 foreign fighters who were members of group in past six months after they tried to return home'

  • Figures compiled by the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights
  • It admits that the numbers are probably underestimates of the true toll
  • In all, at least 1,878 people were executed in six months by the Sunni group

The Islamic State has in just a couple of months executed at least 116 foreign fighters who wanted to quit jihad and return home, a British-based human rights monitoring group claims.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the men killed were foreign fighters who had joined the insurgency but were caught trying to leave territory controlled by militants.

But the monitoring group warned numbers were probably underestimates. 'We believe that the real number of people that had been killed by IS is higher than the number documented,' it said on its website.

Those killed for their attempted desertion were among a total of at least 1,878 people executed in six months by the self-styled Islamic State, which enforces an extreme version of religious law on the areas it controls.

The militant group has taken vast parts of Iraq and Syria and declared a caliphate in territory under its control in June. Since then it has fought the Syrian and Iraqi governments, other insurgents and Kurdish forces.

Rami Abdulrahman, the head of the Syrian monitoring group, told Reuters that Islamic State killed at least 1,175 civilians, including eight women and four children.

He said 930 of the civilians were members of the Sheitaat, a Sunni Muslim tribe from eastern Syria which fought Islamic State for control of two oilfields in August.

Islamic State has publicised beheadings and stoning of many people in areas it controls in Syria and Iraq. These are for actions that violate its reading of Islamic law, such as adultery, homosexuality, stealing and blasphemy.

It nevertheless may come as a surprise that just more than one in every twenty people executed by Islamic State is a foreign fighter who has travelled to join their cause.

The insurgency raging across Iraq and Syria has drawn many thousands of disaffected, young and radicalised Sunni Muslims who believe it is a chance to show their pious devotion while having the adventure of a lifetime.

Sunni youths in towns overrun by the insurgent group also face a stark choice, between becoming fighters or suicide bombers for the group.

Last week a 14-year-old handed himself in to Iraqi authorities after he was sent to blow himself up inside a Shia mosque.

Islamic State has become notorious for its brutality, releasing videos of executions of captured enemy fighters, activists and journalists.

It beheaded two U.S. journalists, and one American and two British aid workers this year in attempts to put pressure on a U.S.-led international coalition, which has been bombing its fighters in Syria since September.

Mr Abdulrahman, who gathers information from all sides of the Syrian conflict, said that Islamic State had also executed 502 soldiers fighting for President Bashar al-Assad and 81 anti-Assad insurgents.

He said that 116 foreign fighters who had joined Islamic State but later wanted to return home, were executed in the Syrian provinces of Deir Al-Zor, Raqqa and Hassakeh since November.

Four other Islamic State fighters were killed on other charges, Abdulrahman said.

The overwhelming number of the group's victims have been from the Syrian population.

More than 200,000 people have been killed in the Syrian civil war, which started when pro-democracy protests in 2011 spiralled into an armed rebellion against the regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Iranian General Shot in Samarra.

"And kill them wherever you find & catch them. Drive them out from where they have turned you out; for Fitna is worse than slaughter." So Allah tells his benighted believers, in the book that claims, in its own pages, to have existed for all time in heaven, inscribed on gold tablets, the Koran, in verse 2:191. 'Fitna' refers to a number of different things, among them heresy & civil war within the Muslim nation. The end of the Second Fitna in 692 spelled the permanent sundering of the Sunni & Shi'ite faction of Islam into two separate camps.

Since Sunnis & Shi'ites each consider the other to be heretical &, therefore, guilty of fitna, they have been killing each other ever since, that is, for 95% of Islam's miserable existence. After all, Allah says that fitna is worse than slaughter, ergo slaughter is the lesser of two evils. As discussed before on this site, Iran is getting increasingly involved in the civil war in Iraq, assisting the Shi'ite government against the Sunni Islamic State. It is much to be hoped that the two sides fight each other to a standstill. The shooting of an Iranian general reported by Reuters today should make that more likely:

Iranian general killed by sniper bullet in embattled Iraqi city

A sniper killed an Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander who was training Iraqi troops and Shi'ite militia fighting Islamic State (IS) militants in the Iraqi city of Samarra, official Iranian media reported on Sunday.

Brigadier General Hamid Taqavi, a veteran of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, was killed by snipers hiding behind a power transformer in Samarra, an embattled city north of Baghdad and home to holy Shi'ite shrines, they said, quoting a Revolutionary Guards' statement.

Several people with him were wounded in the rain of sniper fire, they said.

"Taqavi became a martyr while fulfilling his duty as a military adviser in the fight against Daesh (IS) revisionist terrorists, a glorious end to a long valuable service to advance the cause of (Iran's 1979) Islamic revolution." said the official Defence Ministry site.

It said the general had fought "enemies on various fronts."

Unspecified numbers of Iranian advisors and combatants are defending holy Shi'ite sites in Iraq and Syria against raids by Sunni Jihadi fighters. Iran sent reinforcements to Iraq to help stave off an advance on Baghdad by IS militants this year at the request of Iraqi government and Shi'ite leaders.

The Mask Slips... Sunnah Sexual Slavery Rife in Dubai.

  1. 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.
  2. The Muslims said among themselves, "Will Safiyah be one of the Prophet's wives or just a lady captive & one of his possessions?"

So says the most trusted compilation of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, in volume five, book 59. As Mohammed was a rapist who kept non-Muslim women as sex slaves, Muslim males consider this to be acceptable behaviour. Mohammed is, after all, al-insan al-khamil, the exemplar for Muslims to follow.

This is why we see Muslim (not Asian) grooming gangs going about their repulsive business the length of England, it is why the Islamic State in Syria & Iraq, & Boko Haram in Nigeria, enslave non-Muslim women with such alacrity & it is why domestic staff in Muslim countries face such a barrage of unwelcome attention from their 'masters'. The example or 'sunnah' of the prophet is considered normative. So it is for the unfortunate domestics featured in this interview, uploaded to Dailymotion yesterday (hat-tip to Islam Exposer @IslamExposer.)

We see slick commercials every day on our televisions, portraying Dubai as a modern & civilised business hub, where Westerners can feel at home. But the testimony of these women (who may actually be Muslims, but non-Arab & so, you know, not quite kosher in Arab eyes) demonstrates that the expensively created & burnished reputation of Dubai is a mere charade. These women tell of the rampant abuse meted out to them by the heads of their respective households & even their own wives, in homes that more closely resemble dictatorships. They also attest to the complicity of the authorities in maintaining this loathesome status quo.

Acid Attack Victim Dies in Pakistan.

In his work with convicted Muslims in his country's prison system (convicted of conventional crimes, not of being Muslims), the Danish criminal psychologist, Nicolai Sennels, observed several key differences in the mental landscapes of Muslims & Westerners. (These distinctions are helpfully listed in a very informative essay, written by Sennels, provided by the New English Review in May 2010.)

Among these psychological differences are a glasslike fragile insecurity - the unacculturated Muslim male cannot abide being defied, a propensity for violence (naturally) & the tendency to project blame for their own violent actions upon the victims of same. Taken together, these unfortunate character traits account for the phenomenon of honour violence: the female relative defies the paterfamilias, thus provoking violence.

It does not, however, require familial disagreement to provoke such a reaction: a spurned suitor can wreak exemplary violence upon his former muse & the remarriage of an ex-wife also has the potential of eliciting a response of the most heinous sadism. Such is the case of Javeda Bibi, who finally succumbed to her injuries, more than three weeks after having acid poured on her, as reported by The Express Tribune today (hat-tip to Mr Normal ن @PaulWilko657):

Heinous crime: Acid attack victim dies at hospital

A 20-year-old woman died in intensive care at Nishtar Medical Hospital on Saturday after she was attacked with acid.

Police said Javeda Bibi, a resident of Shujabad, had married 26-year-old Amjad, a daily wage worker, two years ago.

They said her brother Akhtar, 23, was married to Amjad's 21-year-old sister Khursheeda.

They said Akhtar divorced his wife a year after their marriage. They said Amjad then divorced Javeda.

Police said Javeda was married to another labourer, Riaz, six months after her divorce.

They said Amjad had told Javeda not to marry Riaz and threatened to harm her if she did.

"On December 6, Amjad and his two unidentified accomplices forced their way into Riaz's home. They beat up Javeda and then poured a jug of acid on her. She was taken to Shujaabad Tehsil Headquarters Hospital from where she was referred to Nisthar Hospital in Multan," police said. She was pronounced dead on Saturday by doctors.

Police said they had arrested Amjad and one of his accomplices on December 8.

Pakistani Diplomat Displays Childish Oversensitivity over Homeland.

"You are the best of the nations raised up for men; you enjoin what is right & forbid the wrong & believe in Allah; & if the followers of the Book had believed it would have been better for them; of them (some) are believers & most of them are transgressors." So Allah tells his clueless believers, in the book that they claim is the perfect & final word of the creator of the Universe, the Koran, in verse 3:110. So it is, that the Islamic world in general suffers from something of a superiority complex.

They are the greatest, the rest of us are, well, crap. And if it turns out that Western nations are far in advance of Islamic ones, in terms of economics, technology & basic quality of life, that must be the fault of the Jews. It always is. This renders Muslims somewhat sensitive when it comes to even the mildest criticism or negative perception. This is why a Pakistani diplomat has been kvetching about the American series Homeland portraying his hellhole of a country as a hellhole, as reported by MailOnline today:

Pakistan government's fury at U.S. TV series Homeland over its portrayal of the country as a haven for Islamic terrorists

  • Pakistani diplomats condemned the Emmy-winning show's fourth series
  • Complained the show paints Islamabad as a 'hellhole' refuge for terrorists
  • Insisted Pakistan was an ally of U.S. and supports its fight against Taliban
  • Officials have been widely accused of colluding with fanatics in the past
  • Speculation that the government knew Osama Bin Laden's location is rife

The Pakistani government has hit out at U.S. television series Homeland over its portrayal of the country as a safe haven for Islamic terrorists.

Diplomats condemned producers for depicting Islamabad, the setting of the show's fourth series, as a 'hellhole' refuge for the Taliban.

Complaining to Showtime which airs the Emmy-winning show, one official described it as a 'disservice to the people of the US'.

The fourth series of the popular show sees star Claire Danes acting as a member of the Central Intelligence Agency in Islamabad.

Filmed in fact in Cape Town, the first episode sees a violent mob of local people beating another agent to death over a drone strike which killed a sought-after terrorist hiding in a rural farmhouse.

'Maligning a country that has been a close partner and ally of the US... is a disservice not only to the security interests of the US but also to the people of the US,' Pakistan Embassy spokesman Nadeem Hotiana told the New York Post.

PAKISTAN'S INTELLIGENCE AGENCY AND ITS 'LINKS WITH TERROR'.
The Pakistani directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence has been widely accused of hosting and assisting terrorist activity in the past.

Based in Islamabad, doubt was cast over the ISI in 2011 upon the news of Osama Bin Laden's execution by U.S. forces.

How, it was asked, could the government not have known the world's most wanted terrorist was taking refuge in a rural compound some 30 miles from its headquarters?

Following his assassination, Adm Mike Mullen, then the most senior U.S. military officer, said Pakistan had a 'long-standing relationship' with Afghan insurgents.

It has been claimed the directorate differentiates between terrorists committed to corrupting Pakistan and those whose interest lie abroad, with Afghan officials describing the country's handling of terrorism as 'double gamed'.

In September a new chief was appointed to lead the ISI, Rizwan Akhtar.

'Islamabad is a quiet, picturesque city with beautiful mountains and lush greenery.

'In Homeland it's portrayed as a grimy hellhole and war zone where shootouts and bombs go off with dead bodies scattered around. Nothing is further from the truth,' another added.

'Repeated insinuations that an intelligence agency of Pakistan is complicit in protecting the terrorists... is not only absurd but also an insult to the ultimate sacrifices of the thousands of Pakistani security personnel in the war against terrorism.'

This week the Pakistani prime minister Nawaz Sharif spoke of the country's need to persecute terrorists following an attack on a school in Peshawar which saw Taliban fundamentalists massacre 132 children.

Describing the incident as a 'national tragedy', he lifted a moratorium on the death penalty as a result of the attack.

In previous years however the government has been widely accused of colluding with terrorists in recent years, with repeated claims officials helped 9/11 orchestrator Osama Bin Laden evade capture.

Among those convinced the country had a hand in protecting the terrorist is Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Carlotta Gall who spent more than a decade reporting in Pakistan.

'Pakistan did know. They were hiding him, they were handling him. Someone on the inside told me this,' she told ABC news this year.

Upon news of the terrorist's death in 2011, a Pakistani foreign ministry spokesman confirmed the killing but, unlike foreign counterparts, offered no congratulation to U.S forces.

'In an intelligence driven operation, Osama bin Laden was killed in the surroundings of Abbotabad in the early hours of this morning.

'This operation was conducted by the U.S. forces in accordance with declared U.S. policy that Osama bin Laden will be eliminated in a direct action by the U.S. forces, wherever found in the world,' a statement said.

In 2012, a leaked NATO report revealed concerns officials had been assisting the Taliban from the heart of Islamabad.

Among testimonies given by al-Qaeda and Taliban detainees in thousands of interviews, one senior fanatic condemned: 'Pakistan knows everything. They control everything.

'The Taliban are not Islam. The Taliban are Islamabad.'

Speaking of the report at the time, then Pentagon spokesman Captain John Kirby said: 'We have long been concerned about ties between elements of the ISI [Pakistan's intelligence service] and some extremist networks.'

Pakistani government officials dismissed detainees' claims as 'ridiculous' at the time.

Mauritanian Man to Die for Apostasy.

'Narrated Abu Qilaba: Once Umar bin Abdul Aziz sat on his throne in the courtyard of his house so that the people might gather before him. Then he admitted them & (when they came in), he said, "What do you think of Al-Qasama?" They said, "We say that it is lawful to depend on Al-Qasama in Qisas, as the previous Muslim Caliphs carried out Qisas depending on it." Then he said to me, "O Abu Qilaba! What do you say about it?" He let me appear before the people & I said, "O Chief of the Believers! You have the chiefs of the army staff & the nobles of the Arabs. If fifty of them testified that a married man had committed illegal sexual intercourse in Damascus but they had not seen him (doing so), would you stone him?" He said, "No." I said, "If fifty of them testified that a man had committed theft in Hums, would you cut off his hand though they did not see him?" He replied, "No." I said, "By Allah, Allah's Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations:
  1. A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,)
  2. a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse &
  3. a man who fought against Allah & His Apostle & deserted Islam & became an apostate."'

So says Islam's most trusted compilation of ahadith, Sahih Bukhari, in volume nine, book 83, number 37. Islam has always punished those who saw the light & stopped believing. It is the only reason Islam has survived for 14 centuries; fear of one's life is a great persuader.

So it is with one Cheikh Ould Mohamed M'Kheitir (in one of his spellings), an independent journalist who had the audacity to look at the life of Mohammed & point out a few criticisms. He was arrested last January. After almost a year in custody, he has been found guilty of apostasy in a court of law & sentenced to death, as reported by Deutsche Welle on Christmas Day:

Mauritania journalist sentenced to death for apostasy
A court in Mauritania has sentenced a man to death for apostasy for criticizing the Muslim prophet Muhammed. It has been almost 30 years since the West African nation applied the death penalty.

The court in the northwestern city of Nouadhibou sentenced the man, identified by the Reuters news agency as 28-year-old Mohamed Cheikh Ould Mkhaitir, to death for apostasy in an article he published almost a year ago. Some other agencies gave other variations of his name, but it was clear they were referring to the same individual.

The AFP news agency cited a judicial source who said that the defendant fainted when the ruling was read out in the court, He was subsequently revived and taken to prison. It wasn't immediately clear whether he intended to appeal the sentence.

The same source said that in the article in question, the blogger had questioned some of the decisions the prophet had taken during holy wars.

During the trial, the defendant had pleaded not guilty, telling the court that it was "not his intention to harm the prophet."

The prosecution called for the death penalty to be carried out in keeping with Sharia law, recommending that he be shot.

Cheikh Ould Mkhaitir had been in investigative custody since January 2, when he was arrested over the article, which briefly appeared on a number of websites in Mauritania, and sparking street protests against it.

The reading of Thursday's verdict drew cheers outside of the courtroom.

Mauritania hasn't executed a prisoner since 1987, and according to AFP, it has not delivered a death sentence for apostasy since it gained its independence from France in 1960.

German 'PEGIDA' Islamorealist Movement on the Rise.

  1. The likeness of those who were charged with the Torah, then they did not observe it, is as the likeness of the ass bearing books, evil is the likeness of the people who reject the communications of Allah; & Allah does not guide the unjust people.
  2. Say: "O you who are Jews, if you think that you are the favourites of Allah to the exclusion of other people, then invoke death If you are truthful."
  3. And they will never invoke it because of what their hands have sent before; & Allah is Cognisant of the unjust.

So Allah rambles, venting his usual hatred & telling his prophet how to argue with the first people to reject the pair of them, the Jews, in the book that he claims has existed for all time in heaven, inscribed on gold tablets & not cobbled together from half remembered utterances & scribbling on bones & scraps of leather after Mohammed's death, the Koran, in Sura 62. Mohammed &, hence, Allah &, hence the Muslim world, hate Jews.

It should come as a surprise, then, that the Germans are waking up to what Islam is really all about & are protesting more vociferously than most. They have, after all, seen this kind of filth arise in their country before. It is a great pity, then, that the mainstream media, politicians & liberals cannot recognise this, as this report from Deutsche Welle yesterday demonstrates:

Record numbers attend German anti-Islamization rally
More than 17,000 protesters rallied Monday in Dresden against the "Islamization of the Occident," the tenth such demonstration in as many weeks. The far-right movement is becoming a problem for politicians.

German society and the political establishment have for weeks grappled with the emergence of the "Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the Occident," or PEGIDA, whose ranks in the city of Dresden have quickly grown from just a few hundred in October.

Around 4,000 counter-demonstrators marched through Dresden under the slogan "Nazi-free," warning there was no place for racism and xenophobia in a country marred by racial hatred during World War II.

Most PEGIDA followers insisted they had no connection to Nazis, calling themselves "patriots" concerned by the "watering down" of Germany's Christian-rooted culture and traditions. They often accuse mainstream political parties of betraying them, and the media of lying.

Former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, of the center-left Social Democrats (SPD), called Monday for citizens to launch a "rebellion of the decent" against the anti-foreigner movement, telling a weekly magazine "that's the kind of public reaction we need now."

Marches across Germany

In Dresden, the PEGIDA followers gathered outside the eastern city's historic Semper opera house for their pre-Christmas recital. Police said some 17,500 people were present, up from a previous high of 15,000 a week earlier.

The management of the opera house signaled [sic] its distaste by turning the building's lights off and flying flags outside that read: "Open your eyes", "Open your hearts", "Open doors" and "The dignity of the human being is inviolable," the first line of German Basic Law, the country's constitution.

Copycat demonstations [sic] and counterdemonstrations with varying attendance were reported in cities across the country, including Munich, Berlin, Rostock, Würzburg, Düsseldorf, and Bonn.

A DW correspondent in Bonn said the BOGIDA march (Bonn against the Islamization of the Occident) was peaceful, quoting police saying 300 people were present, with some 3,000 counter demonstrators.

In the southern city of Munich, more than 12,000 people rallied to voice their opposition to PEGIDA.

Thorn in many a side

Politicians across the spectrum in Germany have scrambled to come up with ways to deal with the emergence of right-wing nationalists. The PEGIDA movement has emerged at a time when Germany, Europe's biggest economy, has become the continent's top destination for asylum seekers, and the world's number two destination for migrants after the United States.

The influx of refugees from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and several African and Balkan countries has strained local governments, which have scrambled to house the newcomers in old schools, office blocks and army barracks.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has cautioned Germans against falling prey to any form of xenophobic "rabble-rousing," but several conservative politicians have argued the government must "listen" to the people's concerns about immigration.

Only the fledgling anti-euro AfD party has openly sympathized with PEGIDA, saying its message has struck a chord in German society.

Second French Sudden Jihad Syndrome Event in One Weekend.

"Fight & kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait & ambush them using every stratagem of war." So says the most important verse in the entire Koran, the 'Verse of the Sword', number 9:5. 'Every stratagem of war' allows for a great deal of improvisation on the part of any individual Muslim who wishes to wage jihad, but lack the connections, equipment or training to play at being a mujahedin like the ones on television.

If you have no rocket launcher, assault rifle or pistol, use whatever comes to hand: a kitchen knife or a car. Because there is no preparation needed, previously unnoticed potential terrorists can suddenly explode into lethal violence without warning. Thus the term 'sudden jihad syndrome' has been coined for just this phenomenon. In the last year or so we have witnessed instances of sudden jihad syndrome in Ilford, Bradford, Edmonton, Afula in Israel, Manchester (twice now), Moore in Oklahoma, Quebec, Jerusalem, Ottawa, New York & Mishor Adumim in Israel. Now we have two instances of this phenomenon in France in one weekend, as reported by Yahoo News yesterday (hat-tip to Mr Normal ن @PaulWilko657):

Driver ploughs into pedestrians in France's second 'Allahu Akbar' attack

A driver shouting "Allahu Akbar" ("God is greatest") ploughed into pedestrians in eastern France on Sunday, injuring 11 of them, just a day after a man yelling the same words was killed in an attack on police officers.

Two of the people injured in the car attack in the city of Dijon were in a serious condition, a police source said, adding that the driver had been arrested.

"The man, born in 1974, is apparently unbalanced and had been in a psychiatric hospital," a source close to the investigation told AFP, adding that "for now his motives are still unclear".

The man had targeted groups of passersby at five different locations in the city on Sunday evening in a rampage that lasted around half an hour, the police source said.

"Nine people were lightly injured and two others seriously but their lives do not appear to be in danger," the source added.

Witnesses told police that the driver shouted "Allahu Akbar" and "that he was acting for the children of Palestine", a source close to the investigation said.

Police sources said the driver was known to police for petty offences dating back to the 1990s.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls took to Twitter to express "solidarity" with those injured in the attack.

France is still reeling from a suspected radical Islamic attack on Saturday that saw a French convert to Islam shot dead after attacking police officers with a knife while also reportedly crying "Allahu Akbar" in the central town of Joue-les-Tours.

- 'Lone wolf' fears -

The assailant, Burundi-born French national, Bertrand Nzohabonayo seriously injured two officers -- slashing one in the face -- and hurting another.

The 20-year-old attacker also cried "Allahu Akbar" during the assault, said a source close to the case speaking on condition of anonymity.

The assault prompted the government to step up security at police and fire stations nationwide.

Nzohabonayo had previously committed petty offences but was not on a domestic intelligence watch-list although his brother is known for his radical views and once pondered going to Syria, the source said.

The anti-terror branch of the Paris prosecutor's office has opened a probe into that attack, with the line of inquiry focusing on whether it was motivated by radical Islam.

The weekend incidents in France come as governments around the world brace for so-called "lone wolf" attacks by individuals returning from waging jihad abroad, or who are simply following Islamic State group calls for violence in the countries involved in a coalition fighting the militants in Iraq and Syria.

The group has repeatedly singled out France for such attacks, most recently in a video posted on jihadist sites this week.

Last week in Australia, an Iranian-born Islamist with a history of extremism and violence entered a cafe and held people hostage for 16 hours before being killed. Two of the hostages also died.

Last year in France, a recent convert to Islam also stabbed a soldier in the busy Paris commercial complex and transport hub of La Defense.

And the main suspect in the murders of four people at Brussels' Jewish Museum in May, Mehdi Nemmouche, spent more than a year fighting with extremists in Syria.

Authorities in France believe around 1,200 nationals or residents are involved in one way or another in jihadist networks in Iraq and Syria.

'You White Women Are Good at It' Says 'Asian' Rapist.

  1. 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.
  2. The Muslims said among themselves, "Will Safiyah be one of the Prophet's wives or just a lady captive & one of his possessions?"

So says the most trusted compilation of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sahih Bukhari, in volume five, book 59. This shows that Mohammed was a rapist, who captured non-Muslim women & kept them as sex slaves. As Mohammed is al-insan al-khamil, - the most perfect example of manhood for Muslim men to emulate - his predilection for non-consensual intercourse is transmitted down generation after inbred generation until we find ourselves here, in the United Kingdom, with a recently arrived Muslim population who account for a far higher proportion of sex criminals than any other ethno-cultural group resident here.

The parlous example of the revolting Mohammed is the reason all of the so-called 'Asian' grooming gangs unearthed the length of England so far have been composed of Muslims, instead of Sikhs or Hindus. It is the reason all future grooming gangs unearthed the length of England will also be composed of Muslims. But lone wolf sex attacks are also a staple of the followers of Mohammed, the perpetrator of one such example of Islamic rectitude having been sentenced to life in prison, according to this report from MailOnline today (hat-tip to Tommy Robinson (pbuh) @TRobinsonNewEra):

Asian father-of-four raped pub worker for three hours after dragging her off the street saying 'you white women are good at it'

  • Woman in her 20s was walking home from work in Bedford at around 11pm
  • Abdul Ghafoor, 33, grabbed her from behind and dragged her into bushes
  • He had drunk five rums and assaulted her from 11.25pm until 2.45am
  • Victim was able text sister asking for help, who raised alarm with police
  • Judge said attack was 'racially aggravated' and passed a life sentence
  • He added victim was subjected to 'nightmare of unimaginable proportions'

An Asian father-of-four dragged a young pub worker off the street and raped her for three hours saying 'you white women are good at it'.

The woman, who is in her 20s, was walking home from work in Bedford at around 11pm when she was grabbed by Abdul Ghafoor, 33, and forced her into undergrowth, a court heard.

Ghafoor had drunk five rum drinks when he came up behind her and bundled her into the bushes where he began sexually assaulting her in an attack that lasted from 11.25pm until 2.45am.

The victim had sent a WhatsApp message to her sister when she left work on May 30 this year to say she was walking to their flat.

But the married father-of-four, who had earlier propositioned two other white woman, demanded that the woman perform a sex act on him saying 'you white girls are good at it'.

She was able to send a second message to her sister saying 'help me' before he smashed her phone.

At one point she managed to make a run for it when Ghafoor vomited as a result of the alcoholic drinks he had downed, but he caught her and took her back into the undergrowth.

Her sister had raised the alarm and the victim heard the police helicopter overhead as a major search was launched to find her.

Eventually Ghafoor allowed her to get dressed and walked out on to the road with her saying she should accompany him into town, but they were seen by police inspector, Jamie Longwith.

She got into the officer's car while Ghafoor made an attempt to escape but was caught.

Prosecutor at Luton Crown Court, Sally Hobson, said Ghafoor's attack had a racial aspect as he had made comments about the sort of behaviour white women would engage in.

'He made racially aggravated comments to the effect that this is the sort of behaviour that white women would engage in. If he saw her again she would give him a blow job,' she said.

'She was a white woman and he believed it was okay to behave in this way. It was a stranger rape of a young woman going about her business in her home town she ought to feel safe.'

Earlier the prosecutor said: 'We all see the news and we know the dangers of walking home. For the woman, a nightmare came true that night.'

Ms Hobson said the victim had been 'like a frightened rabbit in the headlights' when she gave evidence in the witness box.'

She has been seeing a specialist counsellor and is now on medication and suffers from nightmares.

But she described her as 'extremely brave young lady who conducted herself with dignity'.

The victim listened to the sentencing from another room in the court building via a link.

Last month a jury found him guilty by majority verdicts of three offences of assault by penetration, two offences of rape, false imprisonment and assaulting the woman occasioning her actual bodily harm.

They found him not guilty of a third offence of rape but guilty by a majority of an alternative offence of attempted rape.

Ghafoor, of Nash Road, Bedford, told the jury he had drunk around five rum based drinks during the evening. He claimed she consented to sexual activity.

Asked to explain her Whatsapp message, he said the victim was asking her sister to arrange a birthday party to which he would be invited.

Judge Richard Foster said the victim had been subjected to a 'nightmare of unimaginable proportions'.

He told Ghafoor he had been on the lookout for a victim that night and subjected the woman to the most appalling sexual abuse for over three hours.

'You forced her to perform oral sex and you said: "you white girls are good at it." To some extent the offence was racially aggravated.'

He passed a life sentence for public protection saying he regarded Ghafoor as a dangerous offender.

If he had not received life he would have sentenced him to 18 years, which means Ghafoor cannot be considered for parole until he has served 9 years.

The judge praised the victim for her 'exceptional bravery'. He recommended three officers - Inspector Longwith, the officer in the case DC Jon Wheeler and assistant investigator Derek Winn - for commendations.

The Loss of Innocence: Indoctrinated Arab Child Vents Hatred for Israel.

'Narrated Abu Hurayrah: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, & the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.""' So says Islamic scripture's most trusted compilation of ahadith, Sahih Bukhari, in volume four, book 52, number 177. Islam hates Jews. Islam has always hated Jews because Jews were the first people with the sense to reject the priapic charlatan Mohammed as a prophet.

Forget Israel as a cause for the visceral hate inspired in Muslims at the sight of a yarmulke; Muslims hate Israel because of Jews, not the other way around. The jihad terrorist community (which, despite what any European court will tell you, Hamas is an integral part) knows that this hatred needs to be inculcated from a young age, they learned this from the Nazis. (Then again, with the example of janissaries & tagweed to consider, did the Nazis actually learn this from Islam?)

One particularly heinous example of this very particularly grim phenomenon was broadcast by Palestinian television, on a children's programme earlier this month, as reported by Arutz Sheva today (hat-tip to Mr Normal ن‏ @PaulWilko657):

Young Boy Calls Jews 'Barbaric Apes' on Hamas TV
In a children's television program, a young boy reads the poem 'I Do Not Fear the Gun' as a message to 'the enemy.'

In a recent children's television show sponsored by terrorist organization Hamas, a young boy was asked to a send a message to the enemy.

He responded by reciting a poem titled "I Do Not Fear The Gun."

The poem begins: "I do not fear the gun! / I do not fear the gun! /You are nothing but herds of deluded idiots / Jerusalem is my land, Jerusalem is my honor."

Later in the poem can be found the lines, "oh sons of Zion, oh the most evil of creatures, oh barbaric apes, Jerusalem rejects you and vomits your filth."

The show aired on Al-Aqsa TV on December 5, 2014.

More Child Murder on the Cards, as Taliban Leader Warns Pakistan Government.

"Narrated Atiyyah al-Qurazi: I was among the captives of Banu Qurayzah. They (the Companions) examined us, & those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, & those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair." So says one of the authentic six compilations of ahadith in Islamic scripture, Sunan Abu Dawud, in book 38, number 4390. If killing kids as young as twelve was OK with Mohammed - he'd given these instructions to his companions - then it's OK with today's Muslim terrorists. Islamic militants the world over are practicing Islam the way their prophet did, hence the mass murder. This is why the Pakistani Taliban are so confident & unashamed in their warning of a repeat of Tuesday's Peshawar school massacre, as can be seen from this report from MailOnline on Friday (hat-tip to Tommy Robinson @TRobinsonNewEra):

'Your children will not escape': Chilling new threat from Taliban commander nicknamed 'slim' who ordered massacre of 132 children in Pakistan

  • Taliban commander Khalifa Omar Mansoor issued threat to Pakistani army
  • In a direct video message he warned more children would be slaughtered
  • Schools and universities throughout Pakistan have been warned by the authorities to step-up security
  • Serious fears the Taliban will 'make good' on their latest chilling threats

As Pakistani warplanes and ground troops killed at least 77 militants in the tribal areas close to Afghanistan's border yesterday, the Taliban commander who masterminded the massacre of 132 school children warned he would order more horrific attacks like it.

The military has intensified operations against the Taliban since the slaughter at the Army Public School in Peshawar, killing a reported 180 Taliban fighters and their supporters.

Sharif
But with Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif promising to destroy terrorism, Taliban commander Khalifa Omar Mansoor warned the Army: 'If our women and children died as martyrs your children will not escape.'

In a direct video message, the mass murderer nicknamed 'slim' and described as 'the most hated – and dangerous' man in Pakistan, said: 'I want to tell the Pakistan government, and the directors, teachers and students of the army's affiliated institutions, that you are the ones strengthening this un-Islamic democratic system.

'It is these institutions that graduate future generals, brigadiers and majors, who then kill Taliban and innocent tribal people.'

Today, two extremists were hung in Pakistan - the country's first executions since 2008 - after the president ended a ban on the death penalty in response to the school massacre earlier this week.

Schools and universities throughout Pakistan have been warned by the authorities to step-up security and rehearse escape plans amid fears the Taliban will 'make good' on their latest chilling threats.

Significantly, the thickly bearded 36 year-old Mansoor was pictured with the heavily armed suicide cell behind the atrocity kneeling in blue in the middle of the propaganda picture released by the Taliban following the outrage.

In the immediate aftermath of the Peshawar carnage, the Taliban said that attack focused on the children of Pakistan's military had been carried out to make them 'feel the pain' in revenge for the deaths of their own families in the offensive on the tribal areas where various factions have their bases.

Mansoor, the self-proclaimed organiser of Tuesday's school atrocity, today said: ' This is obvious if you will attack us we will certainly go for a revenge for our families.'

Pakistan's security forces say they are determined to 'take out' the Taliban and Al Qaeda, but some civilian casualties are inevitable. They strongly deny there have been large-scale civilian casualties.

But in the video Mansoor claimed ordinary Pakistanis have disregarded the plight of residents in the country's North Waziristan tribal area that is in the sights of the military.

'This is something we cannot accept anymore, and if you continue to target our women and children, then your children will not be safe anymore,' he said.

'We announce that we will not discriminate in our attacks any longer, and will be as unconcerned as you are.'

He continued : 'If our women and children die as martyrs, your children will not escape. We will fight against you in such a style that you attack us and we will take revenge on innocents.'

Educated in Islamabad and then at a madrassa, a religious school, he is one of three brothers and spent time in the port city of Karachi before joining the Taliban in 2007.

Nicknamed 'nary,' a word in the Pashto language meaning 'slim', he is the father of two daughters and is said to have fought alongside the Afghan Taliban against both the British and US forces in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan.

The Taliban video describes him as the 'amir', or leader, of Peshawar and nearby Darra Adam Khel.

Bizarrely, his security file says he has a passion for volleyball and sets-up a net to play the game each time he moves his base.

The military said its ground forces late Thursday killed 10 militants while airstrikes killed another 17, including an Uzbek commander. Another 32 alleged terrorists were killed by security forces in an ambush in Tirah valley in Khyber on Friday as they headed toward the Afghan border, the military said.

Today, two extremists were hung in the country's first executions since 2008 - after the president ended a ban on the death penalty in response to the Peshawar school massacre.

The government ended the six-year ban on capital punishment for terror-related cases following the brutal terror attack on the army school.

Shuja Khanzada, Home Minister of central Punjab province, where the executions took place, confirmed that two militants, Aqil, also known as Doctor Usman, and Arshad Mehmood, had been hanged.

Aqil, who uses the name Doctor Usman, was convicted for an attack on the army headquarters in Rawalpindi in 2009 and was arrested after being injured.

Arshad Mehmood was convicted for his involvement in a 2003 assassination attempt on former military ruler General Pervez Musharraf.

Pakistan's military chief Thursday signed death warrants for six militants on death row after the government ended the death penalty moratorium on Wednesday.

The United Nations called for Pakistan to reconsider executing terror suspects, saying that 'the death penalty has no measurable deterrent effect on levels of insurgent and terrorist violence'.

Yesterday morning, troops killed 18 more militants during a 'cordon and search operation' in Khyber, the military said.

Khyber agency is one of two main areas in the northwest where the military has been trying to root out militants in recent months. Khyber borders Peshawar, where the school massacre happened, and militants have traditionally attacked the city before withdrawing to the tribal region where police can't chase them.

The other area is North Waziristan, where the military launched a massive operation in June.

The province is a stronghold of the Pakistani Taliban (TTP) as well as the Haqqani Network - a Pakistan-based militant group with links to both the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

The army says it has killed more than 1,700 militants since its current offensive started in June in response to a Taliban attack on the country's busiest airport in Karachi that left at least 38 dead, including the attackers.

In the southern province of Baluchistan, Pakistani security forces killed a senior Pakistani Taliban leader along with seven of his associates in three separate pre-dawn raids, said a tribal police officer, Ali Ahmed.

The Pakistani army chief late Thursday signed the death warrants of six 'hard core terrorists' convicted and sentenced to death by military courts, the army said.

It was unclear when the military planned to hang the six men, but authorities generally move quickly once death warrants are signed. Such executions are usually carried out at prisons under the supervision of army officers and then the bodies are handed over to relatives for burial.

The news comes as the heartbroken son of the headmistress murdered in the Peshawar school massacre has said she died 'saving the children' - not being burned alive or blown up while hiding in in a locked toilet.

One of the most horrific stories from the Peshawar school massacre was the death of headmistress Tahira Qazi - who was slaughtered alongside nine colleagues and 132 innocent children by the Taliban.

Early reports claimed that Mrs Qazi was specifically targeted by the six militants because she was married to a retired colonel in the Pakistani army, and that she had fled her classroom and locked herself in a toilet when she heard their gunshots.

Others confused her with a second female teacher, Hifsa Khush, who was burnt to death in front of her traumatised pupils.

But now her son Ahmad, 23, has taken to social media to clarify the reports - saying his mother was shot in the head by one of the six depraved killed as she was shepherding children out of the besieged building so they could escape certain death.

The remains of Mrs Qazi's body are believed to have been found beneath a pile of rubble after the ceiling and walls of her classroom collapsed.

Confusion over exactly how she died led to rumours surfacing that he had been hiding from the militants in a locked toilet when they blew the room to pieces using a grenade.

Others muddled her story up with that of fellow teacher Hifsa Khush, who was horrifically burnt to death in front of her traumatised pupils.

But a post on Ahmad Qazi's Facebook page clarified details of her death, saying that burn marks on her body were inflicted after she died.

These, he said, were caused by an 'additional blast' rather than a hand grenade and that 'she was pretty much recognisable.'

The statement ends with a plea from Qazi for the stories to be corrected, urging people to share his Facebook status so that 'the right information be taken to the people.'

Clarification of Mrs Qazi's death came as the Taliban issued another statement on the attack, claiming their aim had been to target the sons of a Pakistani military officer.

Mohammad Khorasani, the spokesman for Pakistan Taliban, claimed in a statement issued to media: '[The] attack on the school in Peshawar was revenge for the killing of its fighters and their families during on going military operation in North Waziristan.'

One of the commanders of Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan TTP also claimed in a video message: 'If our women and children died as martyrs your children will not escape.'

Pointing towards the Pakistani military's ongoing operation in North Waziristan, Khalifa Omar Mansoor - a Taliban commander believed by security forces to have masterminded the attack, warned:' This is obvious if you will attack us we will certainly go for a revenge for our families.'

Earlier this week, pictures of a blood splattered doorway leading to an auditorium and the scene of the final gun battle emerged. In a grim tour of the building photographers were shown inside the auditorium.

The floor is caked in blood in places and dozens of chairs lie in disarray, knocked over by children running for cover as the terrorists hosed them with bullets.

The lucky ones, it transpired, survived by playing dead under these chairs as the gunmen stalked the room, searching for children they'd missed.

As people around the world united to condemn the attack, the Taliban gloatingly published pictures of the fighters responsible for the slaughter.

A series of chilling images shows them lined up with assault rifles and rocket launchers.

The massacre led to calls for the death penalty to be restored. 'It was decided that this moratorium should be lifted. The prime minister approved,' said government spokesman Mohiuddin Wan, referring to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's approval of the decision by a ministerial committee.

A moratorium on the death penalty was imposed in 2008 and only one execution has taken place since then.

The government declared a three-day mourning period, starting on Wednesday. The authorities also warned schools to be vigilant, as intelligence has been received by police suggesting terrorists are planning to attach magnetic bombs to school buses, according to Sky News.

Some of the funerals were held overnight, but most of the 132 children and 10 school staff members killed in the attack were to be buried Wednesday. Another 121 students and three staff members were wounded.

Some of the critically wounded adults - members of the school staff - died overnight, and authorities raised the overall death toll to 148.

Hundreds of people attended the funeral prayer for Mrs Qazi, held in a field of wheat crops.

Her son Ahmad, 23, said that he was proud of his mother.

'She was more committed to the students of the school than her family,' he said.

Ahmad said that he last met her on Tuesday morning, for breakfast, the day she was killed and burnt alive.

He told MailOnline: 'Her vehicle came late that day, so we talked about different things. She was so happy for her students. She told me that she would have a busy day ahead. She left home for school around 8:45 am.'

At around 10:45 he heard about the attack and tried to call her.

He continued: 'I started trying her cell number but for an hour it remained busy. I tried dozens of the time but couldn't reach her and after an hour her cell turned off. Later her personal assistant (PA) told me that she was busy talking to parents of the students. Her PA told us that she had the opportunity to leave the school.'

'She had that smiling face. But I could not see her face for more than a second after she was killed. It was so horrible. It was burnt and I could not even imagine my sister in that shape. I could not dare see her body more than once.'

Mother of three Tahira Kazi was very popular among her students, too.

'She was not an angry principal but a very disciplined one,' said 18-year-old grade 12 APS student Muhammad Tajdar. 'I have never saw her hitting a student or in an angry mood. She came to our class last time on Thursday last week and asked us to focus on our studies.'

Tajdar was there when terrorists attacked the school.

He said: 'I was on second floor of building with my class fellow when I heard firing. I saw three young men clad in black uniform jumping the back wall of the school. They were carrying guns and hand grenades. They started firing the bullets straight to the students. We quickly got into a classroom, locked the door and put chairs and benches in front of the door.

'There were at least 25 students in that classroom. We heard the cries of the students and teachers but we stayed silent. We were shivering with fear.'

Another shocking account of the massacre came from 13-year-old survivor Ehsan Elahi, an eighth grade student who was busy with his classmates learning first aid training from army instructors at the main hall of the school when he heard the sound of gunfire nearby.

He told MailOnline: 'Our teachers and instructors asked us to calm down but the sound of the bullets started came closer and closer. In the next minute, the glass of windows and doors of the hall smashed with bullets. Some people started kicking the hall doors.'

He said that situation created panic among the 100 students in the hall.

He said: 'Everybody was trying to find a place to hide but there was not such places in the hall. The students were crying and weeping. There were only chairs and benches to hide behind in the hall. I jumped behind a bench and laid on the ground.' He said the attackers burst in and started 'spraying bullets like hell'.

Elahi continued: 'I saw army instructors falling on the ground first. I saw many of my friends getting bullets on their heads, chests, arms and legs right in front of me. Their body parts and blood were flying like small pieces of cotton in the class room.

'Warm blood and flesh of my friends fell on my face and other parts of my body. It was horrible. They kept on firing bullets for at least 10 minutes and then stopped. It was a pause of a maximum of a minute. Next moment, they started spraying bullets again towards those who were crying with pain or moving. I also received two bullets on my right arm. I wanted to cry with my full voice but I held my pain and did not cry because it meant death.'

Elahi explained how his life was eventually saved by Pakistani soldiers.

He said: 'They were not ready to leave alive even a single person present in the hall. After around 15 minutes, we heard some bullets shots from outside. I think army soldiers reached the school by that time and they fired those bullets. This diverted the attention of the attackers. They ran out from the hall. But, I did not move or cried for next 10 minutes unless army men came to rescue us.

'The hall has turned to pool of blood and death. Human blood, flesh and body parts were scattered everywhere. I saw lifeless faces of many of my friends when I was leaving the hall. Their faces are still in front of my eyes.'

More horrifying accounts have emerged of another female teacher being burned alive as she courageously stood in the path of the terrorists and told her children to run for their lives.

Afsha Ahmed, 24, confronted the marauding gunmen when they burst into her classroom and told them: 'You can only kill my students over my dead body.'

The militants doused her with petrol and set her alight, but she still mustered the strength to beckon her pupils to flee.

One of her students, 15-year-old Irfan Ullah, wept as he recalled her incredible bravery.

He said: 'She was a hero, so brave.

'She jumped up and stood between us and the terrorists before they could target us.

'She warned them: 'You can only kill them over my dead body'. I remember her last words - she said: 'I won't see my students lying in blood on the floor'.'

Irfan, who suffered serious injuries to his chest and stomach in the chaos, said he hoped Mrs Ahmed would forgive him for not trying to protect her and for any mistakes he ever made in class.

'I felt so selfish as we ran away to safe our lives instead of trying to save our teacher who sacrificed her life for our better tomorrow,' he added.

Another teacher, Hifsa Khush, is also thought to have been burned alive in front of her pupils after being doused in petrol.

Prayer vigils were held across the nation and in other schools, students spoke of their shock at the carnage in Peshawar, where seven Taliban gunmen, explosives strapped to their bodies, scaled a back wall using a ladder to get into the military-run establishment in the morning hours on Tuesday.

REVEALED: THE BLOODTHIRSTY TALIBAN LEADER DUBBED 'RADIO MULLAH' BEHIND PAKISTANI SCHOOL MASSACRE - WHO ALSO ORDERED MALALA HIT
Fazlullah
Yousafzai
The bloody slaughter of 132 children at a school in Pakistan yesterday was ordered by Maulana Fazlullah - the head of the country's Taliban terror group and a man whose previous crimes include ordering the murder of teenage education campaigner Malala Yousafzai.

The firebrand militant, whose thick black beard reaches halfway down his chest, took control of the Pakistani Taliban 13 months ago, and it is thought yesterday's massacre may have been his barbaric revenge for Malala, 17, being award the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this year.

Whatever his twisted motive, Fazlullah has succeeded in uniting the world in revulsion once again.

Born Fazal Hayat in 1974 in the Swat Valley, Fazlullah is a member of the Yousafzai tribe - the same group of ethnic Pashtuns from which Malala takes her surname.

Aged 18 he became the leader of the local terror group Tehreek-e-Nafaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi after its leadership was decimated by arrests following the September 11 attacks in New York.

In the hope of cementing his legitimacy as leader, Fazlullah married the daughter of Sufi Muhammad, who founded Tehreek-e-Nafaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi in 2002. Rumours that his henchmen kidnapped the bride and forced her to marry him have dogged Fazlullah ever since.

While in jail, Muhammad ordered Fazlullah to adopt his new name and sent him reams of radical Islamic literature designed to assist and guide his son in law.

By the time Muhammad was released from prison in 2008, Fazlullah's leadership was secure enough for its founder not to resume control.

Later that year Fazlullah allied Tehreek-e-Nafaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi with the Pakistani Taliban, and he started taking direct orders from Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud.

This relationship would allow Fazlullah to become increasingly close to senior figures in the terror group.

While taking orders from the Pakistani Taliban, Fazlullah controlled more than 4,000 fighters - helping him to effectively run a parallel government in the Swat Valley and impose strict Sharia law across 57 villages.

It was while governing the Swat Valley that Fazlullah began using FM radio stations to broadcast his firebrand sermons in the area, earning him the nickname Radio Mullah.

His rantings about 'sins' such as television, music, and computers were deemed compulsory listening among the villagers as the Taliban imposed a rigorous version of Islamic law, publicly beheading and flogging wrongdoers and burning schools.

In 2012 Fazlullah ordered the death of Malala Yousafzai - the teenage education campaigner who almost died when a masked gunman in Swat Valley jumped into a vehicle taking girls home from school and shouted 'Who is Malala?' before shooting her in the head.

Mehsud
Last November Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud was killed by a U.S. drone strike, leading to the Taliban's supreme council electing Fazlullah as its new head.

Since then, the militant has specialised in the kind attention grabbing savagery that deflects attention away from the Taliban's declining influence in Swat Valley, which has been eroded by bitter feuds with local clans - including the traditionally dominant Mehsud tribe.

Fazlullah has also found his power reined in by the Pakistani military's fresh push into the Taliban's former North Waziristan stronghold.

In September Fazlullah also declared the Taliban's support for the Islamic State and vowed to send fighters to assist the terror group as it was wages bloody war in Syria and Iraq.

Yesterday's brutal massacre of schoolchildren is widely seen as an attempt by Fazlullah to prove to his rivals that the Taliban is still a relevant force.

The strategy may not be particularly well thought out, however, as it is only likely to add to the tribal divisions that have drastically weakened the group over the past year.

The attack was the deadliest slaughter of innocents in the country and horrified a nation already weary of unending terrorist assaults.

Army commandos fought the Taliban in a day-long battle until the school was cleared and the attackers dead.

'They finished in minutes what I had lived my whole life for, my son,' said laborer Akhtar Hussain, tears streaming down his face as he buried his 14-year-old, Fahad. He said he had worked for years in Dubai to earn a livelihood for his children.

'That innocent one is now gone in the grave, and I can't wait to join him, I can't live anymore,' he wailed, banging his fists against his head.

'The attackers came around 10:30 a.m. on a pick-up van,' said Issam Uddin, a 25-year-old school bus driver.

'They drove it around the back of the school and set it on fire to block the way. Then they went to Gate 1 and killed a soldier, a gatekeeper and a gardener. Firing began and the first suicide attack took place.'

The Taliban said the attack was revenge for a military offensive against their safe havens in the northwest, along the border with Afghanistan, which began in June. Analysts said the school siege showed that even diminished, the militant group still could inflict horrific carnage.

The attack drew swift condemnation from around the world. President Barack Obama said the 'terrorists have once again showed their depravity.'

Pakistan's teenage Nobel Peace laureate Malala Yousafzai - herself a survivor of a Taliban shooting - said she was 'heartbroken' by the bloodshed.

Even Taliban militants in neighboring Afghanistan decried the killing spree, calling it 'un-Islamic.'

Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif pledged to step up the campaign that - along with U.S. drone strikes - has targeted the militants.

'We will take account of each and every drop of our children's blood,' said Sharif, who rushed to Peshawar shortly after the attack to offer support for the victims.

At a top-level meeting in Peshawar he said: 'We must not forget these scenes. The way they left bullet holes in the bodies of innocent kids, the way they tore apart their faces with bullets.'

Ghani
Sharif said he spoke to Afghan President Ashraf Ghani late Tuesday to discuss how both countries could do more to fight terrorism. The two agreed to launch fresh operations on their respective sides of the border, he said, and pledged to 'clean this region from terrorism.'

In neighboring India, which has long accused Pakistan of supporting anti-India guerrillas, schools on Wednesday observed two minutes of silence for the Peshawar victims at the urging of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who called the attack 'a senseless act of unspeakable brutality.'

Ziauddin Yousafzai, Pakistani diplomat and the father of Malala Yousafzai, told the BBC Today programme that his family was traumatised by the atrocity.

He said: 'Yesterday we heard about this horrible news, my whole family was in trauma. It is the extreme of extremism.

'I can imagine how much sadness, terror and horror those families will be passing through now.

'Yesterday my wife had a fit, she went into unconsciousness for five to 10 minutes. I have never seen my daughter so sad and upset as I saw her yesterday.

'Schools should be safe places for children. I am afraid that if they [Taliban] are not countered, we may see more horrible things in future.'
