Islamic terrorism

Miliband becomes an apologist for Islam

Ed Miliband is mad as a cut snake.

He is now advocating for laws that could make a crime of his own comments on Islam.

A future Labour Government is committed to outlaw the scourge of Islamophobia by changing the law and making it an aggravated crime, according to the Party’s Leader Ed Miliband.

“We are going to make it an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people’s records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime,” Miliband told the Editor of The Muslim News, Ahmed J Versi in a wide ranging exclusive interview.

Another ISIS mass killing of Christians

27BCFD0900000578-3045711-image-a-98_1429454332879

ISIS has released another video showing the mass killing of Christians.

VICE News reports:

A new video released Sunday by the Islamic State (IS) appears to show the gruesome killing of at least a dozen Ethiopian men through decapitation and shooting.

The video is described as showing two separate groups of hostages being killed by separate IS offshoots in Libya. The two groups are named as Wilayat Barqa, which claims to hold territory on the Mediterranean coast, and Wilayat Fazzan, which controls part of the country’s south.

The footage, which bears the hallmarks of previous IS propaganda films, including the logo of the group’s Al-Furqan media arm, is more than 29 minutes long. It begins with a description of Christian churches and calls the Holy Trinity — the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit — a form of polytheism whose worshippers deserve punishment.

Pope upsets Turks over comments about genocide

Pope Francis has upset the Turks over comments he made of the genocide of Armenians as the hands of Ottoman soldiers.

Pope Francis has sparked a diplomatic row by calling the massacre of up to 1.5 million Armenians 100 years ago “the first genocide of the 20th century,” prompting Turkey to accuse him of inciting hatred.

Muslim Turkey accepts that many Christian Armenians died in clashes with Ottoman soldiers beginning in 1915, when Armenia was part of the empire ruled from Istanbul, but denies hundreds of thousands were killed and that this amounted to genocide.

At an Armenian rite Mass in St Peter’s Basilica to mark the 100th anniversary of the mass killings, Francis became the first head of the Roman Catholic Church to publicly pronounce the word “genocide” to describe them.

Some European and South American countries use the term to describe the killings, but the United States and some others, keen to maintain good relations with an important ally, avoid doing so.

Turkey was swift to protest. “The pope’s statements, which are far from historical and judicial facts, cannot be accepted,” Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on his Twitter account.

“Religious offices are not places to incite hatred and revenge with baseless accusations,” he said.

Andrew Bolt: The Left’s sinister silence on Islamism

Andrew Bolt has noticed the same thing I have…the left wing is silent on Islamism.

WHAT will it take for many in the Left to openly condemn the Islamic State? Why this silence in the face of evil?

In January, the Islamic State threw two men off a tall building in Iraq for the “crime” of being gay.

In February, they threw another gay man off a building, this time in Syria and, when he somehow survived, had a crowd stone him to death.

IS is in a war against gays — not just against Jews, Christians and any Muslim thought insufficiently devout.

But what have our main gay representatives — largely Left-leaning — said in response to such savagery against gays?

The NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby? Silent.

Victoria’s Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby? Not one press release.

Labor frontbencher Penny Wong, openly lesbian? Nothing.

Former Greens leader Bob Brown, our first openly gay senator?

Also nothing.

Current Greens leader Christine Milne? Not a tweet.

Indeed, not one of the 150 floats in Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian mardi gras on Saturday flew a banner of protest against this deadly persecution or the brand of faith which inspired it.

Yes, the faith. Many Muslim countries do permit gay sex, yet it is also true that all seven countries which punish homosexuality with death are Muslim, with the Koran damning gays as “people transgressing beyond bounds” who should have “rained down on them a shower (of brimstone)”.

So why no protest from the gay Left?    Read more »

Finlayson mans up, Vance gets more shrill

While Murray McCully is cuddling terrorists, Chris Finlayson is manning up at a conference that has just wrapped up discussing Islamic terror.

Andrea Vance has her knickers in a bunch over it too, so it must have been a good thing Finlayson attended.

Security services minister Chris Finlayson has confirmed his attendance at an anti-extremism summit widely criticised for singling out Muslims.

He is on his way back from a ministerial meeting at the White House Summit on Countering Violent Extremism.

Finlayson, the minister responsible for the Government Communications Security Bureau and the Security Intelligence Service, spoke yesterday on “the importance of strengthening the role of civil society in preventing violent extremism”.

The meeting was chaired by Secretary of State John Kerry and followed terror attacks in Paris and Copenhagen.  Read more »

Karl du Fresne on the left’s unwillingness to confront evil

Karl du Fresne calls out the left over their unwillingness to confront evil.

It’s hard to think of a more challenging conundrum than the one posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis).

Labour leader Andrew Little was right last week to describe Isis as evil. It’s a word seldom heard these days because it implies a moral judgment, and moral judgments are unfashionable. But “evil” is the only way to describe men who coldly behead their captives, and then amp up the shock factor by burning one alive.

There is an element of gleeful sadism in their barbarism. Last week they pushed a gay man from the top of a tall building – reportedly the fourth such execution for homosexuality.

As with their other atrocities, they posted pictures and video online, a gesture that was part boast, part taunt. In doing so, they were saying to the world: “Look what we’re capable of. There is no limit to what we will do.

“Norms of civilised behaviour don’t apply to us. In fact we hold the civilised world in contempt. You know, and we know, that you are too weak and divided to stop us.”

And these were merely the more flamboyant examples of Isis’ depravity – the ones calculated to get our attention and fill us with fear, horror and anger.

Almost unnoticed in the background, Isis is proceeding with its grand plan to establish an Islamic caliphate, which means systematically slaughtering or enslaving anyone who stands in its way. No-one, then, can dispute that Isis is evil. The conundrum is what the rest of the world should do about it.

I wish there was a pat answer, but Isis presents a unique challenge because it stands apart from all norms of combat or diplomacy.

It has no regard for human lives, including its own members. It acknowledges no rules, it has no interest in negotiation and its adherents – who seem to include a significant number of thugs with criminal records – are said to be happy to die for their cause because it will ensure entry into paradise. How do you fight such an enemy?

Yet doing nothing is not an option. Either we believe civilised values are worth defending and that vulnerable people deserve protection from mass murderers, or we don’t. And if we do, we can’t just whistle nonchalantly while looking the other way and pretending it isn’t happening.

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 »
