Islamic Extremism

A small gesture that is powerful and good but also harmful and dangerous

The small Ahmadiyya sect of Islam is known for condemning Islamic extremism and for doing charitable good works. Their community’s slogan is “Love for all, hatred for none” and unlike mainstream Islam sects Sunni and Shia they are tolerant of other religions. Their values are still not the same as Western values as women and men are segregated inside their mosques and their women still wear hijab. Pete and I visited Auckland’s Ahmadiyya mosque last year and found them as concerned about ” radical Islam” as we were.

The problem I have with the peaceful and tolerant Ahmadiyya is that they are used as poster girls for mainstream Islam by both the media and politicians. They also promote their faith as being representative of Islam which gives the world a false impression of what Islam really is.

The Baitul Futuh Mosque has also been acting as the center for the ‘Loyalty, Freedom and Peace Campaign’ in order for the west to recognize Islam as a peaceful religion and to improve the Integration of Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

UK: Islamist-related offences have doubled in the last five years

These are UK terror attacks on UK citizens.  Now have a guess where these terror incidents took place…

The shocking report also reveals that Islamist-related offences have doubled in the last five years, while the rate of beheadings and stabbings has increased eleven-fold.

London and Birmingham have been identified as housing the most offenders, with East London home to half of London-based offenders (22 per cent overall)

Beheadings really wasn’t a thing in western culture.  It’s very much a recent development.

The study identifies all Islamism-inspired terrorism convictions and suicide attacks in the UK between 1998 and 2015.

The 1,000-page report, published by the Hannah Stuart and the Henry Jackson Society, says Islamism-inspired terrorism remains the principal terrorism threat to both the United Kingdom and British interests overseas.

London was the place of residence at the time of arrest in 43 per cent of Islamism-related offences. Read more »

Be afraid, be very afraid, this is coming to New Zealand

Lefties who won’t listen to Whaleoil’s warnings of the dangers associated with Islam because of our political views should listen to the brave Muslim leaders in Australia who are urgently sounding the alarm. If  Australian Muslim leaders are afraid and getting death threats for exposing the threat then Australians should be very afraid. The leaders are pleading with the Australian government to do something about it explaining that Saudi money is funding the threat but the  Australian government like New Zealand’s still thinks,

” She’ll be right mate.”

She won’t.

Fri, 10 Apr 2015, Fort Hood Victims Awarded Purple Hearts After Long, Controversial Battle. Today the military awarded the victims and survivours of the 2009 Fort Hood attack with Purple Hearts and other medals, after a more than five-year-long bureaucratic struggle over whether the awards were deserved.

In Aftermath of Fort Hood, Community Haunted by Clues that went Unheeded

According to witnesses at the Fort Hood shooting, Nidal Hasan, a Muslim of Palestinian descent, entered the Soldier Readiness Center at Fort Hood at about 1:30 p.m. on Nov. 5, 2009, took a seat at a table, bowed his head for a few seconds, then stood up and started shooting.

Witnesses say the devout Muslim officer jumped up on a desk and shouted, “Allahu akbar!” – Allah is greatest – before opening fire and spraying more than 100 bullets inside a crowded building where troops were preparing to deploy to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Before he was shot and handcuffed by a civilian police officer, Hasan had killed 13 people and wounded 32 more. All but one of the dead were soldiers, including a pregnant private who curled on the floor and pleaded for her baby’s life.

Prior to the shooting, Hasan reportedly was disciplined for pushing his beliefs on others, routinely wore Islamic dress and the morning of the massacre gave away his furniture and Qurans. His business card carried an abbreviation for “Soldier of Allah.” U.S. intelligence had been aware of e-mail communications between Hasan and the Yemen-based terror organizer Anwar al-Awlaki, and Hasan’s colleagues had been aware of his increasing radicalization for several years. Hasan himself later wrote of al-Awlaki as his “mentor” and spoke out against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Yet the U.S. government has staunchly refused to label Hasan’s attack as an act of terrorism.

Time to face facts on Islamic Terrorism

It is time to face facts on Islamic terrorism

How many more excuses are we going to make before we face the facts? How many more fifth-rate, sixth-form debates will we have to sit through? Why, whenever any act of Islamist terror is carried out on Western society do we race to ask all the wrong questions, all based on the central fallacy that this is somehow our own fault? We wring our hands and make excuses. And then we blame ourselves. “What did we do to make this happen?” we ask, time after time.

Unfortunately, there are always people on hand eager to feed our self-absorption and ignorance. “It is your foreign policy,” they say. Perhaps after Brussels people might question this response a little more searchingly. Aside from Bhutan, Belgium probably has the least interventionist foreign policy of any country in the world.

Other apologists answer that terrorists are moved to blow up trains and gun down people in cafes because they feel disenfranchised and ostracised, with few employment opportunities. This is particularly strange when you consider that there is record unemployment in Southern Europe right now and none of our cities has yet been visited by a jobless Catholic Italian modelling a suicide vest. It is about poverty, excuse-seekers say. Yet nobody from the most deprived estates of Glasgow has yet carried this idea to its illogical conclusion.

Indeed, people like to think that deprivation and radicalisation go hand in hand; they claim that the areas these young men are forced to live in aren’t nice enough and it makes them feel marginalised. Molenbeek in Belgium lacked “gentrification”, apparently, and this was a causal factor. If only we could only find them somewhere nice to live, they would find it easier to integrate.

Another Lone Wolf gunman foiled that has nothing to do with Islam

An Islamic extremist with an arsenal of heavy weapons planned an imminent attack on one or more French churches, France’s top security official said Wednesday, announcing the arrest of the man who is also accused in the death of a young mother.

The 24-year-old computer science student was flagged as a risk by security officials last year, said Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.

A French security official, who was not authorized to publicly release details of the arrest, said the suspect — an Algerian who had lived in France for several years — was arrested Sunday after he apparently shot himself by accident and called for an ambulance. Police who arrived at the scene found a blood trail leading to his car, with loaded guns and notes about potential targets inside.

In the man’s apartment, in southeastern Paris, more weapons were found as well as evidence of ties to Islamic extremism, the official said. There was no immediate evidence that the suspect had direct ties to any organized groups, the official said.

That’s right.  Because we all have this inner desire to collect loaded guns and make plans for blowing up churches.

Is Wiremu Curtis a terrorist, fanatical dreamer or a genuine man of peace?

x

 

The full video is available here: TVNZ Ondemand

Recently TVNZ’s Sunday program screened an article on Wiremu Curtis a former Black Power member, also known as ‘Haroon’. Haroon who insisted he was going to the Middle East to get an ‘education’ was allegedly stopped at the airport by SIS agents, and according to Haroon allegedly shown papers that show he had in what he describes in his own words “weapons of mass destructions.”

Now I’m going to be honest, I didn’t actually watch the program when it screened at the time, but after having my attention drawn to it from other sources prompted me to watch it and analyse it a little closer. Immediately things struck me as a bit odd, such as his comment that the SIS showed him papers proving he had “weapons of mass destructions.” It is all well and good asserting these types of comments in the public domain, as the SIS will never publicly comment on operational matters.   Read more »
