Islamic terrorism

What can the West learn from Egypt?

egyp-MMAP-md

I came across a very well written article which is very long but well worth the read.

You can read it in full here.

It was written by a woman in Egypt in Arabic and was translated by John Hayward. We do not have the author’s real name as she cannot safely talk about Islam openly without putting her life in danger. From her we learn what happens when Islam takes over a country.

Her article ends with the following plea:

Please listen to my voice, my cry. Please see and feel my tears. Listen to my blood pounding with my message. I am a surviving victim of Islam.

Al-Qaeda use Ed Snowden’s leaks to evade surveillance

al-qaeda-militant-expansion.si

Ed Snowden, one of Kim Doctcom’s friends, has revealed sufficient security services trade craft in monitoring terrorists, that Al-Qaeda have made a training film to teach the terrorists and interested lone wolf gunmen that have nothing to do with Islam updated methods.

Confirming the fears of Western intelligence agencies, Al-Qaeda has released a new video guide on how to avoid being detected. They based their tutorial on Edward Snowden’s leaks concerning Western spying methods, British media reported.

The seven and a half minute tutorial video made by the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization and released by its media platform, provides a detailed guide on how terrorists can avoid being tracked… The report says that the video gives a list of countries and companies cooperating with intelligence agencies and provides a list of software packages to protect against surveillance.

That’s the same Snowden that has been trying to destabilise a democratically elected Government and influence an election right here in New Zealand.  He did so while on the payroll of Kim Dotcom who had the singular objective to destroy John Key.

What continues to boggle the mind is that the Green and Labour Parties will back clowns like Snowden in the face of clear evidence that instead of being a whistle blower, he is in fact a traitor and a saboteur to western democracies. Read more »

Hamas celebrates Palestinian terror attack on Israeli bus

Hamas came out and hoodwinked the international community by condemning the attack on Charlie Hebdo, but with the latest terror attack on Israel in Tel Aviv they have come out praising the terrorists.

The IDF reports on the attack:

This morning, January 21, 2015, a Palestinian terrorist injured at least twelve people in a stabbing attack in Tel Aviv. Security forces neutralized the terrorist and are currently searching for additional suspects.

The terrorist, a 23 year old male from the West Bank city of Tulkarem, stabbed several passengers on a bus in central Tel Aviv. According to reports, at least twelve people were injured in the attack, four of them severely.

The suspect was later detained, and casualties were minimized due to the combined efforts of the bus driver, a young Israeli boy riding the bus to school, and members of the Israeli Prison Services in the area.

The terrorist began his attack, and stabbed the bus driver, who simultaneously attempted to defend himself and stop the moving bus. Meanwhile, a young boy on his way to school managed to break a window to allow passengers to escape. He then successfully slowed the terrorist’s attack by throwing his school bag at him as the terrorist headed in his direction, allowing the boy to escape.

The suspect then exited the bus and continued his rampage, indiscriminately stabbing people on the street. He was quickly stopped and detained by Israeli Prison Services, who were heading to a court in the area. A security force office appropriately exhibited his readiness in such a situation; he chased the terrorist, yelled for him to halt, and as he didn’t comply, shot warning shots in the air. As the Palestinian man continued to flee, the security officer successfully stopped him with a non-fatal gun shot to his leg.

Head lone wolf of all the lone wolf gunmen says attack some more, but don’t worry it’s not at all related to Islam

The head lone wolf of all the lone wolf gunmen has called for more attacks by the other lone wolves out there.

But we mustn’t be afraid this has nothing at all to do with Islam.

Al-Qaeda’s Yemen branch called for lone-wolf attacks against the United States and the West in a video posted Tuesday, days after the group claimed responsibility for the Charlie Hebdo killings.

One of the group’s ideologues, Nasser bin Ali al-Ansi, urged supporters to conduct what he called “individual jihad,” according to the SITE monitoring group, which tracks Islamist extremists online.

“We are preparing and lurking for the enemies of Allah. We incite the believers to do that,” Ansi is quoted as saying in the online video.

In a previous video, Ansi claimed Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula was behind the attack on French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, the start of three days of bloodshed in France that left 17 people dead.   Read more »

Definitely no problems to see here…

Islam is a religion of peace, no need to fear, no need to over react…

Germany’s anti-Islamic PEGIDA movement says it has cancelled a planned march on Monday, citing a death threat against organisers from the Islamic State jihadist group.

“Cancelled! Dear friends, unfortunately we must cancel our 13th meeting due to security concerns,” the group ‘Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident’ said on its Facebook page on Sunday.

“What in police jargon is called an ‘abstract threat’ has changed to a ‘concrete death threat’ against a member of the organising team. IS terrorists have ordered his assassination.”

Germany’s Der Spiegel news weekly reported on Friday that foreign intelligence services had picked up communications by some “known international jihadists”, without giving specific details.

The intelligence, which was passed to German authorities, indicated they had discussed possible attacks on PEGIDA rallies.   Read more »

Claims that Islam is a “religion of peace” is a shameful lie

Douglas Murray at  The Spectator explains why it is a shameful lie to describe any religion, but in particular Islam as a “religion of peace”.

The West’s movement towards the truth is remarkably slow. We drag ourselves towards it painfully, inch by inch, after each bloody Islamist assault.

In France, Britain, Germany, America and nearly every other country in the world it remains government policy to say that any and all attacks carried out in the name of Mohammed have ‘nothing to do with Islam’. It was said by George W. Bush after 9/11, Tony Blair after 7/7 and Tony Abbott after the Sydney attack last month. It is what David Cameron said after two British extremists cut off the head of Drummer Lee Rigby in London, when ‘Jihadi John’ cut off the head of aid worker Alan Henning in the ‘Islamic State’ and when Islamic extremists attacked a Kenyan mall, separated the Muslims from the Christians and shot the latter in the head. And, of course, it is what President François Hollande said after the massacre of journalists and Jews in Paris last week.

All these leaders are wrong. In private, they and their senior advisers often concede that they are telling a lie. The most sympathetic explanation is that they are telling a ‘noble lie’, provoked by a fear that we — the general public — are a lynch mob in waiting. ‘Noble’ or not, this lie is a mistake. First, because the general public do not rely on politicians for their information and can perfectly well read articles and books about Islam for themselves. Secondly, because the lie helps no one understand the threat we face. Thirdly, because it takes any heat off Muslims to deal with the bad traditions in their own religion. And fourthly, because unless mainstream politicians address these matters then one day perhaps the public will overtake their politicians to a truly alarming extent.

If politicians are so worried about this secondary ‘backlash’ problem then they would do well to remind us not to blame the jihadists’ actions on our peaceful compatriots and then deal with the primary problem — radical Islam — in order that no secondary, reactionary problem will ever grow.

We must confront radical Islam, otherwise it will grow.

Yet today our political class fuels both cause and nascent effect. Because the truth is there for all to see. To claim that people who punish people by killing them for blaspheming Islam while shouting ‘Allah is greatest’ has ‘nothing to do with Islam’ is madness. Because the violence of the Islamists is, truthfully, only to do with Islam: the worst version of Islam, certainly, but Islam nonetheless.

Last week, a chink was broken in this wall of disinformation when Sajid Javid, the only Muslim-born member of the British cabinet, and one of its brightest hopes, dipped a toe into this water. After the Paris attacks, he told the BBC: ‘The lazy answer would be to say that this has got nothing whatsoever to do with Islam or Muslims and that should be the end of that. That would be lazy and wrong.’ Sadly, he proceeded to utter the second most lazy thing one can say: ‘These people are using Islam, taking a peaceful religion and using it as a tool to carry out their activities.’

How many times have we heard this? …from Obama, to Cameron, to many other politicians.

It is a lie.   Read more »

A message for Shayne Currie and other cowards

Caroline Fourest appears on the U.K. outlet Sky News to discuss the cowardice of UK journalists and editors in not showing the Charlie Hebdo front page.

She expresses her disgust at their cowardice and  then she holds up a copy on live television, and the host obligingly demonstrates Fourest’s point:

The law of the jungle

The law of the jungle is a law that applies even after the thin veneer of civilization has been applied to mankind.

Wars are won based on jungle law. Kill or be killed. Only the strong survive. We may want to forget this uncomfortable truth but it is a truth nevertheless. History shows us this over and over again.

Because Mankind is intelligent we have learned to forge short term and long term strategic relationships which enable the weak to become strong. Strength in numbers, strength forged by a common goal and usually a common enemy.

The historic meeting in Yalta between Winston Churchill, Franklin  Roosevelt  and Joseph Stalin is a great example of this.

At Yalta, important decisions were made regarding the future progress of the war and the postwar world.

First of all it cannot be racist as ISIS  is not a race it is a terrorist group. Also to be fair its members are very fond of wearing tea towel like rags on both their heads and over their faces.
Secondly, the language used is no different to that used on Islamic Protester’s signs in western countries everywhere. How many times have we seen ‘Death to Infidels’ or ‘Death to those who insult Islam’, on signs in the West?

Thirdly the media have censored the wording on the sign in the photo. Have you ever seen Muslims’ signs censored in the media? Death to Infidels means death to all of us who are not Muslim. That is a pretty overt threat don’t you think?

The Charlie Hebdo front page the NZ Herald are too gutless to publish

The NZ Herald has written a story about the front page for tomorrow’s Charlie Hebdo edition and despite being sent it they are refusing to publish it. The NZ Herald originally stated that they had chosen NOT to publish it but have now removed that comment from their article.

The front page of the upcoming “survivors” edition of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo shows a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad holding up a “Je Suis Charlie” sign under the words: “All is forgiven”.

The front page was released to media today ahead of the magazine’s publication on Thursday NZ time, its first issue since an attack on the weekly’s Paris offices last week left 12 people dead, including several cartoonists.

It also shows Muhammad with a tear in his eye.

The special edition will have a print run of three million copies instead of the usual 60,000.

It will also be offered “in 16 languages” for readers around the world, one of its columnists, Patrick Pelloux, said today.

Charlie Hebdo’s lawyer, Richard Malka, told French radio the upcoming publication would “obviously” lampoon Muhammad – among other figures – to show staff would “cede nothing” to extremists seeking to silence them.

“We are not giving an inch. The spirit of ‘Je Suis Charlie’ also implies a right to blaspheme,” Mr Malka said.
