Non-Arab and/or non-Muslims in the “Arab” world [Racist Arabism and bigoted Islamism]

Non-Arab and/or non-Muslims in the “Arab” world

One key element missing from the discussion is the question of non-Arab and/or non-Muslims in the “Arab” world. The Arab nationalists have succeeded in establishing some 23 non-democratic, ethnically (Arab) and religiously (Islam) defined nation-states in over 1 million square miles of territory, often at the expense of non-Arabs, such as the Kurds (Muslims, non-Arabs), Assyrians (Christians, non-Arabs), Copts (Christians, non-Arabs), southern Sudanese (Christian and pagan non-Arabs), Maronite Lebanese (Christian and mostly identified with their Phoenician ancestors) and Mizrahi Jews. Arab nationalist ideology claims all this territory exclusively as “Arab” despite the legitimate claims of non-Arabs and/or non-Muslims to ancient homelands long ago arabized with the spread of Islam, often through conquest.

I believe that the Arab opposition to the existence of non-Arab, non-Muslim Israel is based on the ideological motivations which led to the persecution of non-Arab minorities. The Assyrians suffered massacre and expulsion by the Arab nationalists of Iraq in the 1920s and 1930s. The Kurds have been persecuted and have suffered terribly for their struggle to establish an independent Kurdistan (at the hands of the Turks and Iranians as well, but that is another story.)

Arab nationalist ideology, and its Islamicist couterpart, cannot and will not tolerate non-Arab and non-Islamic peoples organizing themselves into their own independent nation states. Indeed, I have seen on Islamicist web sites the goal of “regaining” Spain in the name of Islam.

I believe that we need to place Israel’s struggle to survive into this context. Any non-Arab/non-Islamic state in the region must rely on strength (political, moral, spiritual and military) if it wants to survive in the Middle East. In this context can we thus place Israel’s demand for security. It is not security for the sake of security, not seucirty for the sake of oppressing another people, but security for the sake of survival against two racist and exclusivist ideologies (Arabism and Islamicism) which have succeeded in repressing the just struggles for national self-determination of most non-Arab peoples in the Middle East.

Major Islamic massacre by twin suicide bombing in Iraq – Diyala province with the capture of Leader of Al-Qaida in Iraq: Abu Omar al-Baghdadi

Major Islamic massacre by twin suicide bombing in Iraq – Diyala province with the capture of Leader of Al-Qaida in Iraq: Abu Omar al-Baghdadi

Iraq Suicide Bomb Attacks Kill or Injure Almost 200 (Update1)

By Caroline Alexander and Ali Sheikholeslami

April 23 (Bloomberg) — Two suicide bombings in Iraq left almost 200 people dead or injured, including Iranian Shiite Muslim pilgrims, as Iraqi security forces announced the arrest of al-Qaeda’s leader in the country.

There were at least 105 casualties among six busloads of Iranians targeted at a roadside restaurant in Diyala province as they traveled to a shrine in Karbala, Iran’s state-run Fars news agency said without providing details. Iraqi President Jalal Talabani’s Patriotic Union of Kurdistan said 70 were killed or wounded, while Agence France-Presse put the death toll at 45.

While violence has ebbed in the country as a whole after a surge in U.S. troops and as Sunni Muslim insurgents turned against al-Qaeda, the bombings highlight the fragility of the country’s security. There were no immediate claims of responsibility for today’s attacks.

In Baghdad, 31 people died, including 10 police officers, and 51 were hurt in a bombing in a square in the center of the capital, Fars said, citing the city’s police commander. A female suicide bomber carried out the attack, detonating her explosives belt in a crowd of civilians and Iraqi security forces in the Karradah neighborhood, the PUK said.

The al-Qaeda leader was captured by Iraqi security forces in Baghdad’s al-Risafa district, the PUK said on its Arabic- language Web site, citing security spokesman Major General Qassim Atta, who declined to provide further information.

Sunni Insurgents

Shiite pilgrims have frequently been targeted by Sunni insurgent groups, in incidents that Iraqi government officials say are aimed at stoking sectarian violence. Today’s attack on pilgrims is one of the deadliest assaults on Shiite worshippers in Iraq since 149 people were killed in March 2007 while heading to Karbala in buses and on foot. That was among the worst attacks since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Iraqi security officials identified the al-Qaeda leader captured today as Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the PUK said. The Interior Ministry said in March 2007 that its forces had arrested al-Baghdadi, a claim it later retracted. In July 2007, the U.S. military said al-Baghdadi never existed.

Analysts have said Abu Omar al-Baghdadi may be a title invented by al-Qaeda to give any non-Iraqi leader of the group in Iraq an identity that would promote acceptance in the country. Last year al-Arabiya television identified al-Baghdadi as Hamid Dawoud al-Zawi. Fars today identified him as Abdullah Rashid Saleh, saying he was born in Baghdad in 1947 and went to Afghanistan in 1987 to meet with Osama bin Laden.

Bolton: ‘War on terror’? – we should have been more specific that it’s about Islamic fundamentalism

Bolton: ‘War on terror’? – we should have been more specific that it’s about Islamic fundamentalism
foxnews ^ | April 4, 2009

‘The Journal Editorial Report,’ April 4, 2009 [...] GIGOT: John, let me ask you — let me take up another subject here, a little more light hearted, but serious in its way. We have the Obama administration changing the rhetoric. No longer the global war on terror, Secretary of State Clinton said this week they’re not going to use that. It’ now an overseas contingency operation according to the Pentagon. What’s going on here?

BOLTON: Again, this would be laughable if it weren’t serious. I think they’re trying to distract attention from the war on terror. I don’t think that was necessarily the best name myself. I thought we should have been more specific that it was about Islamic fundamentalism. We weren’t concerned about dealing with the Baath’s or the IRA in Northern Ireland.

But when you remove the whole threat of terrorism out of your rhetoric, what you’re trying is get it out of the center of American foreign policy. I think that’s a mistake. I think people read that as a sign of weakness and will cause us problems down the road trying to rally other countries to our side for what overseas contingency?

When will Islamized Amanpour explain the west to HER Muslim bigoted world?

When will Islamized Amanpour explain the west to HER Muslim bigoted world?
 
April 6, 2009
 
Christiane Amanpour was all smiles, overly excited to CNN’s anchor’s announcement of Obama’s words to Turkey: “US is not, never will be at war with Islam”.
In an orchestrated “question” by CNN’s news anchor she was “asked” what US population “know” or feel about Islam, she said that 55% don’t know much about Islam and 48% view Islam unfavorably, all that – programmed leading up to her prepared statement that she is going to have a program about “educating Americans on Islam” – so called “documentary.
As you may recall, it was this C. Amanpour who in a “God’s warriors” series has put it all in one basket: Jihadi fascists who attempt to rule the entire world under oppressive Caliphate, with radical Christians and with radical Zionists.
 
A very huge error of omission was of course that current Turkey’s elected party is a radical Islamic one :
 
 (Erdogan’s Islamist party wins Turkey’s election – Telegraph Erdogan’s Islamist party wins Turkey’s election … The election pitted the AKP, with its Islamic roots, against a secular and nationalist opposition, …

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20090329/wl_nm/us_turkey_elections )
 
A few questions to “objective” Islamized Christianne Amanpour:
 
Will she mention Muhammad’s massacre of the NATIVE Jews of Saudi Arabia just because they refused to “accept” Muhammad as a “prophet’?
 
Will she mention the violence Muhammad has led on all “non-believers’, Christians or others?
 
Will she mention the Islamic genocide by Turkey on Armenians and on Greek Christians at the turn of the century?
 
Will she mention US’ Thomas Jefferson’s fight against Islamic terrorists of Barbary Pirates?
 
Will she mention the massacres by Muslims on Jews in recent history prior to the re-establishment of Israel, like 1929 Hebron 1941 Farhud in Iraq, both by the Arab Muslim leader: Haj Amin Al Husseini?
 
Will she mention that anti western, or anti all non-Muslims: Osama Bin Laden is a “hero” in mainstream Islam today?
 
Will she mention that it was Jimmy Carter who pushed for the motions that later on brought the radical Ayatollah Hummeini Islamic regime?
 
Will she explain that the Ayattollah’s fruit: Islamic Hitler Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (who “denies” the holocaust in order to commit a second, to “wipe out” 6,000,000 Jews of Israel) sees himself as the Muslim apocalyptic Messiah the “Mehdi” and his global army Hezbollah in: Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, and even reaching our southern border with its connection to drug cartels (drugging Jihad)?
 
Last nut not least, When is CNN in Arabic going to explain Christianity and Judaism to the bigoted Arab Muslim world, is that not the most important thing to do… for world peace?

IDEOLOGY
Torture in the Quran and early Islam
By James Arlandson
January 08, 2006
Three main purposes of torture are to punish criminals, to extract information, and to exact revenge. It is at least one of these three purposes that Muhammad, the founder of Islam, had in mind when he tortured two criminals: a treasurer who would not disclose where Jewish wealth lay hidden, and an enemyan old woman taken as a prisoner in a Muslim raid.
Violence and brutality are embedded in the origins of Islam, including the Quran. Islamic websites that preach justice and human rights too often do not substantially (or do not at all) confront this legacy. For example, these three articles, among many others, preach ‘peace and love’ and ‘human rights':
But a presentation of Islam as peaceful is not full disclosure.
In apparent reply to the unpleasant facts about original Islam, one of the oddest interpretive gymnastics performed by Muslim polemicists and missionaries asserts that Jesus also endorsed torture and summary executions. So who are Christians and the West (though the two are not identical) to complain about Islam? But …
The Quran commands crucifixion and mutilation
The Quran in Sura 5:33 says:
5:33 Those who wage war against God and His Messenger and strive to spread corruption in the land should be punished by death, crucifixion, the amputation of an alternate hand and foot or banishment from the land: a disgrace for them in this world, and then a terrible punishment in the Hereafter . . . . (MAS Abdel Haleem, The Qur’an, Oxford UP, 2004)
It is important to realize that this verse appears in a legal context; Muhammad is laying down the law. The verse is not a parable or an illustration. It is intended to be carried out in real life, and it was then and it is today, as this article demonstrates.
In this verse, Allah says that the criminal who strives to spread corruption in the land can be (1) executed, (2) crucified, (3) mutilated, or (4) expelled. The problems lie in the second and third punishments. In crucifixion a criminal dies a needlessly painful death, and in mutilation (cutting off an alternate hand and foot), the criminal has no chance to redeem himself for the vague crime of corruption. These two punishments are torturous, so they are unjust. It is one thing to execute a firstdegree murderer, for example, but to torture him by crucifixion is unacceptable.
At first glance, the clause ‘those who wage war’ denotes an offense much larger than a crime like murder. However, as we shall see, the historical context of this verse comes nowhere near a war, so the clause is overblown.
The key word, then, is ‘corruption.’ How should it be defined?
An article published by the journal alTawhid (Oneness or Unity) in Qum, Iran, the seat of learning for Shi’ites, uses Sura 5:33 and defines the crimes broadly (scroll down to Point Three), as follows: prostitution and the disintegration of family relationships; narcotics and the disintegration of individual’s rational personality; colonialism and the undermining of peoples’ dignity and plundering of their resources; racism and the disintegration of human brotherhood; violation of all recognized rights and the breaking of covenants; bombardment of populated areas, use of chemical weapons; attacks on civil aviation, national railways, commercial and tourist vessels, and similar methods which are universally condemned in war.
This broad description of crimes opens the door to all manner of justifications for applying the punishments in Sura 5:33. Oddly, the Iranian scholar places his definition and the punishments in the verse in a discussion of human rights. But should a human have his alternate hand and foot cut off for prostitution, pimping, or racism? Should he be crucified for disintegration of the family? For colonialism? (Islam itself has been a terrible perpetrator of colonialism.) Rather than questioning this verse, the author of the article and many in the Islamic world seem to accept it as coming from God and so matteroffactly interpret it for society today.
For more translations of this verse, the readers may go to these three sites: this one has multiple translations; this one has three; and this conservative translation is subsidized by the Saudi royal family. See this article on another related Islamic atrocity: the Quran’s command in Sura 5:38 to chop off the hands of male or female thieves.
The next three historical examples take place in AD 628, when Muhammad was strong enough militarily to inflict torture on people without fear of substantial retaliation. He grew in strength since his victory at the Battle of Badr in AD 624, and it was then that he started down the path of misusing his power.
Splitting an old woman in two
Raiding was part and parcel of seventhcentury Arab culture, and Muhammad incorporated this dubious custom and elevated it to jihad. Sometimes the raids took ugly, nasty turns.
In early AD 628, during a raid, Zayd, Muhammad’s freedman and adopted son, was wounded and some of his men were killed by a tribe. Zayd vowed to abstain from sex until he took revenge. After Zayd recovered from his wounds, Muhammad sent him and a raiding band back to the tribe. An old woman named Umm Qirfa was taken prisoner. Would a Muslim leader spare her from death, not to mention from torturing her? No. Her death was cruel, says an Islamic source, matteroffactly.
The executioner appointed by Zayd ‘tied each of her legs with a rope and tied the ropes to camels, and they split her in two.’ (Tabari)
It is not hard to imagine her screams. From the Islamic sources it is unclear why she, an old woman, had to die in the first place. But assuming only for the sake of argument that the initial raid was justifieda big assumption based on the belief that the old woman’s tribe was collaborating with the Jews of Khaybarassuming this is true, did an old woman have to die in such a gruesome wayby torture? It may be argued that Muhammad himself did not order this torture, but that misses the point. The whole expedition was conducted under his orders. Thus, he was ultimately responsible for the behavior of his men. If this atrocity went against his instructions, if he did not agree with such cruel methods (even though he himself committed cruelties), then why did he not punishlike for likeZayd and his executioner? He did not even reprimand them. But Zayd was his adopted son, so apparently family loyalty won out over justice.
The following hadith, though not mentioning the torture, recounts the aftermath of the raid. One of the raiders kept the daughter of Umm Qirfa for himself, and brought her back to Medina, where Muhammad lived. Once Muhammad saw the girl, he shouted to the Muslim raider that he wanted her. What did he do with her? Sell her back to her family? Did he give her family the option to ransom her?
I [Salama, a Muslim raider] drove [captives] along until I brought them to Abu Bakr [Companion of Muhammad] who bestowed that girl on me as a prize. So we arrived in Medina. I had not yet disrobed her when the Messenger of Allah . . . met me in the street and said: Give me that girl, O Salamah. I said: Messenger of Allah, she has fascinated me. I had not yet disrobed her. When on the next day, the Messenger of Allah . . . again met me in the street, he said: O Salama, give me that girl, may God bless your father. I said: she is for you, Messenger of Allah . . . By Allah, I have not yet disrobed her. The Messenger of Allah . . . sent her to the people of Mecca, and surrendered her as ransom for a number of Muslims who had been kept as prisoners in Mecca. (Muslim no. 4345)
Early Islamthe one that Muhammad foundedtrafficked in slavery and allowed sex with women prisoners of war, in their most helpless condition. This hadith gives a sad snapshot of slavery and abuse in early Islam. It is disappointing that Muhammad did not stop this trade with firm commands: No more slavery and no more sex with prisoners of raids! This prohibition is doubly needed when a religion traffics in this trade, as original Islam did. But why would such a command come down from on high, since the trade generated a lot of money and satiated male sexual lust for women?
Muslim activists and missionaries make much of Islamic justice. But how is cruelly killing an old woman anywhere close to appearing like justice?

Ibn Ishaq (d. 767) is an earlier biographer of Muhammad who is considered an important source by modern scholars except the miraculous elements and some chronology. Tabari (d. 923) is an early historian who is also considered reliable.
Mutilating Arab tribesmen
The following event supposedly provides the historical context of Sura 5:33. Shortly after Umm Qirfa’s horrible death (perhaps only a few weeks or within the same month), some Arab tribesmen visited the Prophet and at some time converted to Islam. But they fell sick in the uncongenial climate of Medina. So Muhammad told them to follow a shepherd outside of the city, recommending to them an old folk belief: drinking the milk and urine of a camel, rather than his healing them through the power of Allah. Subsequently, they are reported to have felt better. However, for some reason, they killed the shepherd, turned apostate, and drove off the camels for themselves. This news reached Muhammad, and he ordered them to be hunted down and brought before him. He decreed that their hands and feet should be cut off. Then he added these excesses on top of the others:
Then he ordered for [sic] nails which were heated and [the tribesmen] were branded with those nails, their eyes, and they were left in the Harra (i.e. rocky land in AlMadina). And when they asked for water, no water was given them till they died . . . . (Bukhari, Book of Jihad, no. 3018; cf. online source )
Though this passage is awkwardly translated, it is one of many that should shock everyone of a sound mind. Muhammad actually pierced their eyes with nails (one version says with needles). Then their bodies were thrown on stony ground, dying of dehydration. One version says they died from the battering they suffered from being thrown on rocky ground; another says they died from loss of blood, for Muhammad did not cauterize their amputated limbs. Regardless of the specific cause of their unnatural death, torturing them is excess multiplied by excess, and this is never just.

For more information on this gruesome torture inflicted by the Allahinspired prophet, please see this article.
Burning the treasurer of the city of Khaybar
Muhammad conquered Khaybar in AD 628 (only a few months after the gruesome deaths of Umm Qirfa and the Arab tribesmen), but in AD 625, he had besieged and exiled the Jewish tribe of Nadir in Medina. They immigrated to Khaybar to the north. Now Muhammad wanted their treasure, not to mention the rest of the entire city.
Ibn Ishaq the biographer writes about the torture of the treasurer, to extract information:
Kinana b. alRabi, who had custody of the treasure of B. alNadir, was brought to the apostle [Muhammad] who asked him about it. He denied that he knew where it was.
Then Muhammad finds some of the treasure:
A Jew came to the apostle and said that he had seen Kinana going around a certain ruin every morning, early. When the apostle said to Kinana, ‘Do you know that if we find you have it, I shall kill you?’ he said Yes. The apostle gave orders that the ruin was to be excavated and some of the treasure was found.
Here is the torture that Muhammad permitted:
When he [Muhammad] asked him about the rest, he refused to produce it, so the apostle gave orders . . . ‘Torture him until you extract what he has,’ so [the torturer] kindled a fire with flint and steel on his chest until he was nearly dead.
Michael Fishbein, a translator of the early historian Tabari, disagrees with a phrase in the above translation of Ibn Ishaq. The fire was not kindled on the treasurer’s chest with ‘flint and steel,’ but with a ‘firestick on his chest . . . The firestick (zand) was a stick of wood that could be twirled rapidly in an indentation in a second piece to produce fire’ (note 510). Whether by flint and steel or a firestick, such torture to find material wealth is wrong and misguided.
So how does the story of the treasurer and Khaybar end? Kinana was beheaded in revenge for a killing, and Khaybar was conquered. The citizens, mostly Jews, could work the lands that now belonged to Islam by conquest, but they had to turn over half of the resources to Muhammad and his special Muslim recipients.
Sources: Ibn Ishaq, p. 515; Tabari, vol. 8, pp. 122123. For the tense relations between Muhammad and the Jews during the ten years that he lived in Medina, please see this article. For more information on the torture of the treasurer…
Muslim defenses of these atrocities
The defenses take many forms, but three are the most common.
For the first defensive strategy, Muslim polemicists seek to discredit Ibn Ishaq and Tabari as being less reliable than the hadith collectors and editors Bukhari (d. 870), Muslim (d. 875), and Abu Dawud (d. 875). It should be noted that the explicit information about two victims of torture (Umm Qirfa and Kinana the treasurer) comes only from Ibn Ishaq and Tabari.
In reply, however, this effort to discredit is a oneway street. These same polemicists value Ibn Ishaq and Tabari when they portray Muhammad as heroic and noble. Also, modern western scholars, using modern standards of western scholarship, take these acts of torture seriously, and these scholars almost always defend Muhammad and Islam.
Plus, simple coherence supports the two acts of torture recorded only by Ibn Ishaq and Tabari (Umm Qirfa and the treasurer). That is, the hadith records the torture of the Arab tribesmen, and the hadith records other violent, stealthy actions done by Muhammad, such as assassinations. (Also go here). Many acts of violence cohere together in describing early Islam, and thus the accounts about the two torture victims are pieces that fit into the big picture puzzle.
Finally, the most unpleasant events in early Islam have the strongest probability of really having occurred because it is inconceivable that a Muslim would make them up on his own or receive them from nonMuslims. These harsh anecdotes and accounts, therefore, cannot be explained away in terms of the (alleged) unreliability of the source documents. In fact, those accounts in the hadith and Ibn Ishaq and Tabari that praise the prophet to high heaven, such as his working miracles, are the most suspect, especially since the Quran says that he could not perform miracles, except for producing the Quran itself (though this ‘miracle’ has been easily duplicated by native speakers of Arabic).
The second line of defense shows that Muslim polemicists deflect our attention away from torture in Islam, making a false comparison. For instance, Abul Hamid Siddiqi translated the hadith collection Sahih Muslim and provided some commentary. He describes the renegade Arab tribesmen (see the second historical example, above) in the worst way possible so that the Quranic punishments seem to fit the crime. He also reviews the opinions of classical legal scholars. Then he writes this about western law:
Lest some of these penalties may appear barbarous to some hypersensitive Western reader, let him cast a glance on drawing and quartering: a penalty of the English criminal code maintained as late as the eighteenth century, inflicted on those found guilty of high treason against the King or government. The person committed was usually drawn on a sledge to the place of execution; there he was hung by the neck from a scaffold, being cut down and disemboweled, while still alive; his head was cut from the body and his corpse divided into four quarters . . . . (vol. 3, p. 894, note 2121)
Like many Muslims, Siddiqi deflects the brutality in the origins of his own religion by criticizing later western civilization. He seems to say, ‘Who are you ‘hypersensitive western’ readers to complain? You have your own excessive punishments.’ But this is a tacit admission that Sura 5:33 is in fact cruel and brutal. However, since it came down from Allah, Siddiqi and many others are not allowed to deny its validity. In fact, they have to deny or explain away its barbarity. This is like a husband deflecting his wife’s accurate observations of his cruel flaws with the retort that she is not perfect, either. With that attitude, the husband will never reform. Can or will Islam reform? How can it when the sacred book, brought down by Gabriel from Allah, endorses atrocities?
Next, Siddiqi makes a false comparison and fails to make the right one. He compares the founding documents of Islam with much later, but now outdated western laws. However, this comparison is asymmetrical. It is always better to compare the founder and the source documents of a religion (Islam) with the founder and the source documents of another religion (Christianity). This comparison will developed in the next section, but suffice it to say here that never did Jesus endorse such brutality in a penal code or as an example for society in order to impose external righteousness. He sought to change people, even criminals, from the inside out, so that they can lead moral lives. He did not come to physically maim and torture people.
Finally, though this is not a defense, Siddiqi informs us that classical jurists decreed that if a criminal is being killed in retaliation or for committing a grave crime, he should be supplied with water, if he asks for it. ‘Callousness should not be shown even to a person who is undergoing capital punishment. The criminal must receive punishment according to the law of the Shariah, but he should not in any way be treated brutally’ (vol. 3, p. 894, note 2123). This is a remarkable observation and admission, even though Siddiqi does not mention his Prophet by name, the one who committed these atrocities in the first place.
In effect, Siddiqi and these classical jurists correct and improve on Muhammad’s ‘callousness’ and ‘brutality.’ Siddiqi and these jurists should be applauded. Using clear reason and (apparently) not depending on bygone revelations, they have moved past the origins of Islam. They follow justice more closely than their Prophet did.
Readers can see more replies to Muslim polemicists in this article (scroll down to ‘Modern explanations of Sura 5:33′). For the source of the two options concerning the reliability of Islamic documents (an early Muslim author would neither fabricate on his own the questionable behavior of Muhammad nor receive this from a nonMuslim), go to this article, and scroll down to the subsection ‘Satanic verses,’ searching for W. M. Watt’s assessment)…
This is far different from Sura 5:33 and the life of Muhammad. This verse is not a parable; it is law. It legitimizes and commands crucifixion and mutilation. Also, Muhammad and his close followers actually inflicted torture in real life, so he was consistent with the Quranic law dreamed up by the god of the Arabian Peninsula. Moreover, Muhammad believed Muslim angels helped him kill his enemies at the Battle of Badr (Sura 8:12)…
Conclusion
Muslim missionaries boast that Islam is the best and most complete religion in the world, because it specifies duties and requirements for every aspect of life. But what happens if this control is oppressive? What if it is rooted in a harsh and outdated holy book and traditions? This is seen in the specific area of punishing criminals and enemies and extracting information and exacting revenge, all by torture.
It is a sad fact that too many Islamic websites and literature seem unwilling to confront the violent origins of Islam, and they whitewash the hard truths. This is deceptive at best and dangerous at worst. What happens when or if Islam gets a foothold in a new region on the basis of peace and love, but later on, conservative and strict Muslims (not to mention nonviolent and violent fanatics) cite the numerous violent verses and passages in the Quran and in the hadith in order to defend the infliction of a harsh law, like mutilation or crucifixion in Sura 5:33?

http://www.americanthinker.com/2006/01/torture_in_the_quran_and_early.html
The religion of Islam fulfills each and every criteria of the above-mentioned definition of terrorism. The following irrefutable facts and deductive logic will amply demonstrate this statement. Ever since Islam was founded it has left behind a legacy of violent atrocities and horrible crimes. The holy book of the Muslims, the Koran, contains specific instructions on how to loot, pillage, plunder, rape, torture and murder in order to further the interests of Islam .

SADDAM HUSSEIN
“Al-Anfal” refers to a chapter in the Koran invoking Muslim armies to recompense themselves for their efforts in war by seizing the properties of infidels. It speaks of striking terror “into the hearts of the enemy of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know.”
Saddam probably interpreted this verse from the Koran as sufficient to justify a vicious two-year crusade of extermination of the Kurds. The Kurds, it should be remembered, are also Muslims (but not Arabs, and hated in racist Pan-Arabist Saddam’s eyes).

Seeing, and Believing
The torture tapes the media are ignoring.
June 17, 2004, 8:46 a.m.
By Nick Schulz
EDITOR’S NOTE: Earlier this month, National Review Online obtained a four-minute video of Saddam-era torture at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Many of us here who discussed the matter are ourselves unable to watch the whole video. Some could not get beyond the furious, ecstatic chanting of torturers as they raised swords, celebrating their own dementia in the depths of a man-made hell. What to do with the video was a matter of debate here. On principle this is newsworthy and weighing heavily on our deliberations was the fact that a group of United States senators held a press conference on June 2 during which they showed the horrific video and near no one covered it in fact, to this date, I am aware of no mainstream news organization other than the New York Post yesterday in an opinion column that has even mentioned that this new, Department of Defense-provided, video exists and has been shown on the Hill. We also considered this: Some Westerners, including some who did not support the war in Iraq, frankly may not understand the evil that was the Saddam Hussein regime. You watch or try to the four-minute video and you see the unbearable evil that was and that is no more because of the sacrifice of American and Coalition blood…
“You don’t appreciate what happened in that prison until you see it.”
“In the name of Allah the merciful,” intones the beret-topped loyalist to Saddam’s “secular” regime in the next segment. He introduces to the viewer and the assembled butcher squad to another prisoner. The loyalist-narrator reads from Koran, Sura 2:179: “And there is a saving of life for you in the Law of Equality in punishment. O men of understanding, that you may become the pious.”
“The Fedayeen, Saddin Ezzedin al-Arousi,” he goes on, “was charged with a special mission in which he betrayed his duty in the mission. The head of the Fedayeen has ordered the following: He is expelled from Fedayeen work and his arms are to be broken in front of his unit. Tarik Juman will personally undertake the breaking of his arms. Thank you.”
The camera jumps to al-Arousi sitting with one arm tied behind him as his right arm is extended out to his side. His right elbow rests on a cinderblock and his right fist is supported by another cinderblock. Nothing supports his forearm in between. While a Fedayeen holds the prisoner’s elbow in place, Tarik Juman crashes a three-inch-thick pipe down on his old compatriot’s forearm, bending the forearm in a ‘V’ shape and shattering the bones within. This procedure is repeated for his left arm as well.
http://www.nationalreview.com/comment/schulz200406170846.asp

The ritualized aspects of the video include the Fedayeen rhythmically chanting their loyalty to Saddam and clapping throughout the torture, the Fedayeen wearing their characteristic ninja-like black uniforms, and group participation in the violence. The religious aspect is evident in the praising of Allah and the recitation of the Quran during the torture of a supposed Fedayeen traitor. Finally the beheading entails ritualized singing and praising of Saddam while the head is cut off with a sword, held up, and then placed on the prisoner’s back. Placing the head on the back of the decapitated body is similar to the body disposition of the classic al-Qaeda signature.

AL QAEDA [in Iraq]
Torture chamber found in Iraq

Saturday, 22 December , 2007, 00:12
Last Updated: Saturday, 22 December , 2007, 00:15

Baghdad: Blood-splotches on walls, chains hanging from a ceiling and swords on the killing floor the artifacts left a disturbing tale of brutalities inside a suspected al-Qaeda torture chamber in Iraq.

But there was yet another chilling fact outside the dirt-floor dungeon. Villagers say they knew about the torment but were too intimidated by extremists to tell authorities until now.
Stories such as these claims of insurgent abuses and the silence of frightened Iraqis have emerged with increasing frequency and clarity recently. The reports and tips now pouring in build a harrowing portrait of rule under al-Qaeda and its backers: mass graves, ruthless punishments, self-styled Islamic courts ordering summary executions.
Such a lead brought soldiers earlier this month to the hidden room in Muqdadiyah, about 60 miles north of Baghdad, the US military said Thursday. Graffiti on the building proclaimed Long Live the Islamic State a reference to the Islamic governance, or caliphate, sought in Iraq by Sunni extremist groups that include al-Qaeda.
Scrawled in white paint above a bed in the torture area was a Quranic phrase in Arabic normally used to welcome a guest. But the context suggested only sadistic mockery: “Come in, you are safe.”
The floor was littered with food wrappers, plastic soda bottles and electric cables that snaked to a metal bed frame, presumably where detainees were shocked, according to the US account of the discovery during a December 8-11 mission.
The rooms “had chains, a bed an iron bed that was still connected to a battery knives and swords that were still covered in blood,” said US Army Maj Gen Mark P Hertling, the top US commander in northern Iraq.
Nearby were nine mass graves containing the remains of 26 people, he said.
Villagers knew about the torture site, but did not tell authorities as they were afraid of reprisals from the militants, a local policeman told The Associated Press. He spoke on condition of anonymity as he was still afraid of being targeted by extremists.

Al-Qaeda Torture Manual Found & Released by DoD (***Warning Graphic***)
[24 MAY 07]
Torture, Al-Qaeda Style
Drawings, tools seized from Iraq safe house in U.S. military raid
MAY 24–In a recent raid on an al-Qaeda safe house in Iraq, U.S. military officials recovered an assortment of crude drawings depicting torture methods like “blowtorch to the skin” and “eye removal.” Along with the images, which you’ll find on the following pages, soldiers seized various torture implements, like meat cleavers, whips, and wire cutters. Photos of those items can be seen here. The images, which were just declassified by the Department of Defense, also include a picture of a ramshackle Baghdad safe house described as an “al-Qaeda torture chamber.”
It was there, during an April 24 raid, that soldiers found a man suspended from the ceiling by a chain. According to the military, he had been abducted from his job and was being beaten daily by his captors. In a raid earlier this week, Coalition Forces freed five Iraqis who were found in a padlocked room in Karmah. The group, which included a boy, were reportedly beaten with chains, cables, and hoses. Photos showing injuries sustained by those captives can be found here.

Fitzgerald: Arab racism & black Muslims

October 23, 2008

Fitzgerald: Arab racism and black Muslims

You can find online complaints about Arab racism from black Muslims (or Black Muslims, that is members of the Nation of Islam, who are not considered real Muslims by the Arabs) in this country. Despite the universalist claims made for Islam, it is, and has always been, a vehicle for Arab supremacism. The reasons are not hard to find. As Anwar Shaikh (an ex-Muslim who was born in Pakistan and died in Wales in 2006) noted in his book Islam, The Arab National Religion, the Arabs consider themselves to be superior to other Muslims because they “received” the message from Allah. It was given to them and was in their language. Non-Arab Muslims are supposed to read the Qur’an, or listen to its recital, only in Arabic. Any other version, in any other language, is not the same thing.

Compare this to the missionaries for Christianity, who in some cases became extraordinary linguists in order to study native languages and dialects and translate the Bible into them. And they did this for languages that in many cases had never had a written form — thereby helping to preserve the language for use, and for study.

And when a Muslim prays, wherever in the world he may be, he is directed to pray — it is a matter of fantastic importance — toward Mecca, toward the Hejaz, toward Arabia, the center of his being.

And the Sunnah, one should not forget, is at least as important as the Qur’an. Some Arabs even say that it is possible to imagine a guide to life with the Sunnah alone, but not with the Qur’an alone. Both matter. And what is the Sunnah? It consists of “practice” — the customs and manners of the early Arabs, that is, of Muhammad and His Companions, that serve to gloss the Qur’an. And the Sunnah is derived from two texts — the Hadith, the written record of the sayings and acts of Muhammad, and the Sira, the biography of Muhammad, the first version of which appeared a century-and-a-half after the historical (if he was historical) Muhammad’s death. What matters is not what parts of the Sira were imagined or which Hadith were made up, and by what means, but which parts Muslims take to be the genuine details of the life of Muhammad, and what Hadith they believe to be the most “authentic” in the compilations of the most “authoritative” — by their lights — muhaddithin.

As Anwar Shaikh notes, the Arabs of Arabia needed their own “religion” to compete with, but not to be completely unlike, the earlier-in-time monotheisms of the lands they first conquered. These lands were inhabited by Christians and Jews. The Jews were not confined to the Land of Israel, but were to be found living, and for a long time, in many parts of the Middle East. They were living in Iran and present-day Iraq, and of course in Arabia itself — for how else could they keep being encountered by Muhammad, in Mecca, Medina (Yathrib), the Khaybar Oasis? The Arab “religion” that they created is clearly the result of taking bits and pieces of pagan Arab pre-Islamic lore (the djinn, for example), mixed with misunderstood and misremembered bits of Judaism and Christianity.

This amalgam was presented to the conquered peoples, the Christians and Jews, as not the New and Improved Version of their faiths (as modern Western marketers might have done with a detergent), but rather as something else — the True Version of Their Faith, which they had misunderstood and distorted or perverted. This made it less strange a faith, and those elements of pre-existing beliefs to be found within it, however jumbled, made it easier for Islam to insinuate itself into the minds of non-Muslims who often converted purely as a practical matter. They did so in order to join the side of the conquerors, to be free of the many disabilities that as non-Muslims they would have to endure (the three choices were: to be killed, to convert, or to endure forever the status of dhimmi, with all that that meant). How many Christians in America today, if they had, in perpetuity, to pay $50,000 per head to remain Christians, would do so? For how many would there be a falling off, and how many each year?

Islam has been a destroyer of other cultures and other languages. In a world that worships “diversity,” the thrust of Islam has been to efface diversity. Languages other than Arabic have received no sympathetic study or attention by Arabs or Muslim missionaries — the effort has been to efface the many languages and cultures that could once be found in the lands conquered. There are, here and there, pockets of Aramaic-speakers in some Syrian villages, a handful of Mandaeans and Yazidis (450 of whom were killed by Muslim bombs in the worst act of Muslim terror in Iraq). There are the Copts in Egypt, or what is left of them, they who once were virtually the entire population of Egypt. There are Assyrians and Chaldeans in Iraq, or what is left of them, they who were once…ditto. And so on.

The history of Arab oppression of blacks, whether those blacks became nominal Muslims or not, is too long. The history of Arab enslavement of blacks started far earlier, was much more devastating in its effects, and continued much later, than the Atlantic slave trade. A scholar has estimated that because Arabs specialized in seizing young black males for use in harems (contrary to the Western imagination, harems were not just for the rulers), and would castrate their hunted prey in situ in the jungle, the mortality rate among those then taken by slave coffle to the waiting boats that would take them to the slave markets of Islam reached 90%. See “The Hideous Trade” or google that title and “Jihad Watch” for more.

Slavery is legitimate in Islam. Muhammad had slaves. Muhammad is the Perfect Man. Seventh-century Arabia allowed slavery. Seventh-century Arabia provides the Sunnah, the customs and manners that are to be followed. The Arab slave trade went up and down East Africa, with the chief entrepot for the local trade in African blacks being the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, held by the Arab rulers of Oman. The Arabs also went deep into Central Africa, and into West Africa too, while the European slave-traders never managed to penetrate the interior, preferring to remain on the coast of West Africa and having slaves delivered to them by local tribes.

Slavery was not abolished willingly by the Arabs. It was stamped out, rather, by Western powers. There is no Arab William Wilberforce. There never has been a declaration, by any Arab leader, or government, or theological institute, that slavery is always and everywhere morally wrong. And there cannot be such a declaration, because Muslims are hemmed in by the Example of Muhammad, uswa hasana, al-insan al-kamil, and the practice of the Sunnah. If the French ended Arab enslavement of blacks in much of North Africa, it was the British — the Royal Navy — that helped stamp out the slave trade that continued between Africa and Arabia. This tale is told most fully in J. B. Kelly’s “Britain and the Persian Gulf, 1795-1880.” But the Arabs still managed, as the British presence on the seas diminished, to resurrect that slave trade, which continued into the 1960s.

In 1962, just before slavery was formally abolished — because Saudi Arabia was not yet rich from oil revenues, it had to succumb to Western pressure — 20% at least of the population consisted of black slaves. For more google “Arab slave trade in Africa,” or start here.

It is not surprising that in Dayton, a Muslim girl might have made up a story blaming black men. Nor is it surprising that the Arabs in this congregation want to move from a black neighborhood to a white one. Look at how unwelcome Arabs and Pakistanis have made black Muslims who wish to attend, in any numbers, the same mosques with them. Blacks are seen as fit fodder for conversion to Islam — without really letting potential converts know much about Islam. The proselytizers hold back so much, until their targets are deeply committed and can’t easily get out. They do this so as to swell Muslim ranks and perceived (and real) power, but are not so happy for the new converts to actually associate with Arabs and Pakistanis, who find such an association distasteful. Compare that with the welcoming practice of Christian churches, not least among those evangelicals who have become the butt of so much self-assured mockery.

Not only are most forms of art — sculpture and most painting — forbidden in Islam (look at any major museum at the “Islamic art” — Arabic calligraphy on ceramic plates, and Qur’anic calligraphy on paper), but it is difficult to conduct science within a society suffused with Islam, that discourages every sign of free and skeptical inquiry about the most important thing — Islam — and hence about everything else as well).

And then there is music. There is no Muslim equivalent to the church music of Christianity. Music is forbidden (Black Muslims in America may at times ignore this ban — one more sign of un-orthodoxy). Wherever strict Muslims are in power, they attempt to ban all kinds of music, the folk-music that naturally wells up, as it does in Afghanistan, because it responds to a universal need that the Shari’a laws do not allow to be met. The wedding-singers killed in Afghanistan, the gamelan players in Indonesia disparaged by local Muslims, the RAI singers (often Berbers) threatened or killed in Algeria — all of these are signs and symbols of the Islamic hostility to music. This does not mean that there are not singers. No one denies that there is Arabic music — that oud, those other exotic instruments, or even singers such as Umm Kalthum. But the role of music is much smaller, and it is despite Islam and its discouragement that music appears. The texts and the spirit of Islam, truly adhered to, would deny a role for music altogether. It distracts, you see: distracts from worship.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe begs to differ.

And in the earlier, pre-old-time-religion phase of her career, Rosetta Tharpe’s performance begs to differ with, and demands to ignore, just as much as does her later work, the hostility to music that is inculcated by Islam. And her many admirers — whose numbers may swell with the two examples of her art posted today — will agree.

No sooner does one insane allegation against the Jews appear, than it has to
give way for a newer and even more twisted anti-Jew message. Not content with
Koranic vitriol and racism; Arabs and Muslims in the modern age have created
entire industries dedicated to Jew hatred and denigration. Instead of building
peaceful economies, it is easier, at least from the Arab-Muslim mindset; to

Killing Jews In Israel
This is racism, pure and simple. And despite
efforts by supporters of Palestinian terrorism to justify the murder of innocent
civilians as national liberationor by any other euphemism, this case proves that
the Palestinian terrorists targeting of Jews and only Jews – as many as possible
– is little different in intent than otherr forms of lethal or exterminatory
anti-Jewish murders (I dont use the term anti-Semitic only because some Arabs
claim that because they too are Semites, they cant be anti-Semitic). Obviously
the numbers are different, because Israel is capable of defending its Jewish
citizens, but if it were not, the goal of Palestinian terrorist groups would not
be very different from that of previous groups intent on murdering as many Jews
as possible.
The websites of various Palestinian terrorist groups proclaim -
usually only in English and almost never in Arabic – that they have no quarrel
with the Jews,only with the Zionists. Yet they target every Jew, regardless of
his or her individual political views, and they apologize when they accidentally
kill a non-Jew, regardless of his political views. The racist acts of these
terrorist groups speak louder than their sanitized English-only anti-Zionist
websites.

Global Politician – First They Came For the Jews: The Story of Yet Another

distributed by international news service Reuters from Lebanon had been grossly
manipulated to make Israel look bad. Blogger Zombie argued, in a very convincing

was full of holes, quite possibly a complete fabrication. It proves how easily,
willingly, many Western journalists believe every piece of nonsense Muslims feed
them, as long as it’s directed against Israel, the United States or the West in

http://www.peacefaq.com/bigotry.html

 

 

Another myth is to describe Arab intentions as “moderate,” even in the face
of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
A third assumption is the
“fellowship fallacy”-that the Palestinians share Jewish values, goals and
positions. Some Israelis have met informally or in public forums with high-level
individuals from the territories who are connected to the PLO. The Israelis hear
more nuanced statements about the conflict in these discussions than are usually
heard from the PLO leadership. These words are then interpreted as reflecting
what the PLO would agree to in negotiations with Israel. Such was the case after
informal discussions with Faisal Husseini. In October1989, Husseini proclaimed,
“The Palestinian Peace Camp has won, and now leads the PLO and the Palestinian
people.”
In the speeches quoted above there was no doubt that the Arab’s
ultimate goal was the destruction of Israel. The attitude toward Husseini
demonstrated the willingness of many Israelis to overestimate words of
encouragement and to underestimate the contradictory and inflammatory rhetoric
he said to others. This scenario continued under Yasser Arafat whose guarantees
about his yearning for peace would, incredibly, be accepted with greater
credibility than his speeches and statements to the Arab media and public, and
the racist curricula taught in Palestinian schools about Jews and the need to
destroy Israel.

Europeand Ignore Arab Racism
[2006]
A European Union-sponsored
conference on “Racism, Xenophobia and the Media” being held today in Vienna does
not include anti-Semitism on its agenda, despite flagrant anti-Semitism in the
media of some attending Arab and islamic countries. The decision to ignore
anti-Semitism appears to have been made in an effort by the European Union, to
appease Muslims. Since Muslims attending the conference are sure to
dragout their bigoted Zionism = racism line, israel has decided to not attennd
the lynching. The anti-Semetic racism of the supposedly anti-racist
conference is further reinforced by the failure of congerence organisers to
invite Jewish and Israeli journalists to give presentations at the
conference. A report on Islamophobia will be discussed by Muslim media
represenatives.

The Dance of Deception… the real dynamic is that Israel is the target of
highly organized and funded racism. The targeting of Israel is a continuation of
the racism Jews have experienced in the Arab world for over a thousand years, a
racism that currently manifests in the form of organized terrorist attacks,
misinformation campaigns, manipulation of the UN in demonizing Israel, and the
global promotion of the goal of destroying the Jewish-majority state. Part and
parcel to the organized targeting of Israel is the mistreatment of Palestinians
by most of the Arab world, used as pawns by openly imperialistic Arab regimes in
their racist campaign against Israel.
Israel’s economic success, largely
self-generated, is depicted in the misinformation campaign as the consequence of
Palestinian suffering. But the real dynamic is that oppressive, terrorist
regimes, such as the one that rules Palestinian society, undermine the potential
for eventual prosperity. Prosperity does not always depend on colonial
exploitation, and suffering and poverty do not result only from foreign-based
oppression.
Had the public been accurately and historically informed, it
might have demanded that pressure be put on Arab regimes to give equal rights to
Palestinians, as well as women and minority ethnic groups, in their countries,
and to stop supporting or funding or organizing terrorism against Israel. The
public might have demanded safety for Jews who live in Arab-majority lands,
including the Palestinian territories. Activists might not have limited their
concern to those Palestinians who lost their lands upon fleeing invading Arab
armies in 1948; they might equally have demanded fair compensation for Middle
Eastern Jews and their descendants whose land and property were confiscated by
Arab countries fifty years ago. Concerned activists might have organized against
Palestinian terrorist groups, and their networks of support (granted, a more
difficult and dangerous activity than organizing against Israel). If such
international pressure worked, Israel’s existence would no longer be threatened,
Jews would perhaps be able to live in safety in Arab majority lands, and Israel
would have no reason to maintain the occupation.

The group is the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, known for its association with al-Qaida and allied with former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein….Spanish investigators linked al-Qaida leader Imad Eddit Barakat Yarkas in Madrid with fellow Syrian Muslim Brotherhood member Mohammad Haydar Zammar in Hamburg. Along with Barakat, Spanish authorities arrested five other al-Qaida members of Syrian descent. Yarkas and Zammar knew the Egyptian, Mohamed Atta, reputed leader of the 9-11 hijackers.

ENJOYING APPEASEMENT IN THE WEST

Score one for the Muslim Brotherhood.

SPECIAL REPORT: The Bush administration has decided that calling the enemy by his name is too risky, too politically incorrect, or oddly, somehow too laudatory…The U.S. government seems to think that declaring such links don’t exist will make it so. Score one for the Muslim Brotherhood.As Walid Phares describes in his post-9/11 three-book series on the meaning…What motivates the international Islamic jihad movement is a literal textual interpretation of doctrinal Islam as laid out in the Koran, hadith, and Sunna plus centuries of Islamic scholarship and consensus on the concept of just war. Within this construct, it is true that words such as jihad, mujahedin, and Caliphate carry intensely positive and honorable connotations – for the Muslim jihadis – but hardly for the rest of us, their intended targets for subjugation within the totalitarian system that Sharia would impose. In any case, use or non-use by infidels of the very terms by which jihadis identify themselves, to the extent that it might even be noticed, cannot possibly confer any additional measure of legitimacy on what has been for the mujahedin a centuries-old campaign of duty to spread their faith.What Americans need to understand is that Islamic jihadis, whether part of a formal terrorist organization such as al-Qaida or the Muslim Brotherhood, or merely ideologically driven by the actions and proclamations of such groups, are internally motivated by what they believe is a divine mandate to fight and kill until the entire world comes under the sway of Dar al-Islam (where Sharia law prevails).

The only relevance for this enemy that the choice of descriptive words may have is in the area of psychological operations. If the jihadi enemy can achieve such a state of muddled confusion among the top administrative, legislative, and military leadership of its primary enemy (the United States of America) that we no longer even permit ourselves to utter the name of those sworn to our destruction, then truly they are winning the “War of Ideas.”From a series of excellent recent media pieces, as well as extensive documentation entered into evidence in last year’s Holy Land Foundation terror financing trial, we now know the extent of Muslim Brotherhood activity throughout our society.Muslim Brotherhood organizations such as the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), all three listed by the Department of Justice as unindicted co-conspirators, have achieved unprecedented access to the Department of Defense and even the White House. But aware now of the enemy’s stealth and cunning in seeking to influence U.S. national security policy, the nation is obligated to reject his agenda — an agenda that prioritizes concealment until it is too late of the true nature of their campaign of conquest, whether by Dawa (persuasion, including by way of deception) or terrorist attack. http://www.metimes.com/Politics/2008/04/28/score_one_for_the_muslim_brotherhood/9562/

The 7th Anniversary of 9/11

September 11, 2008

The 7th Anniversary of 9/11
By Frontpagemag.com
FrontPageMagazine.com Thursday, September 11, 2008

Frontpage Interview’s guest today is Alex Alexiev, vice president for research at the Center for Security Policy.

[...]

FP: Expand please on how we have mislabeled this war.

Alexiev: If you declare terror to be your main enemy in this struggle, you’re elevating a symptom of the underlying malignancy rather than the malignancy itself to be your main adversary. This is like focusing on treating the symptoms of cancer like pain and such, rather than the cancer itself. It may make you feel better for a while, but sooner or later the cancer will kill you. The real enemy, on the other hand, whether you call it radical Islam, Islamofascism, Islamism or whatever is a militant millenarian doctrine seeking to impose Islamic rule and barbaric shariah doctrine worldwide. It aims to achieve that by various means and strategies, including proselytism, infiltration of our institutions, taking over Muslim institutions, creating parallel societies and enforcing shariah in Muslim communities, but also intimidation and terrorism. More recently, shariah finance has become yet another potent weapon in the Islamist arsenal. It pursues the legitimization of shariah while providing a new source of financing of extremism and terrorism.

In the West, this plan for conquest by undermining our society from within has been doggedly pursued by the Muslim Brotherhood with the help of Saudi money for at least three decades now. And it isn’t something that is a great secret. It was described in great detail in an Ikhwan document known as “the Project” found in Switzerland in the early 1980s. Indeed, if I remember correctly, Jamie, your publication was the first to publish an English translation of it some years back. The US government presented similar programmatic Brotherhood documents at the Holy Land Foundation trial.

REMEMBER 911 - ISLAMOFASCISM’S ATTACK ON 3,000 INNOCENT PEOPLE
Al-Qaeda ‘marks 9/11 with video’
BBC News, UK – Sep 8, 2008
Zawahiri is thought to be in hiding on the Afghan-Pakistan border The Islamic militant network al-Qaeda, which claimed the 9/11 attacks, has issued a video to mark their seventh anniversary, an Arabic TV channel says.

In the 90-minute tape obtained by Qatar’s al-Jazeera TV, deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahiri denounces Iran and the “Crusader” threat to Islam.

Ayman al-Zawahiri (archive image)

Zawahiri is last known to have appeared in an al-Qaeda video in April.

Other al-Qaeda videos since the 9/11 attacks on America in 2001 featured the group’s leader, Osama Bin Laden.

Zawahiri is shown accusing Iran of “co-operating with the Americans in occupying Iraq and Afghanistan”.

The deputy leader of al-Qaeda, which draws its support from Sunni Muslims, also condemns Shia Muslims for not calling for a holy war in Iraq against Western forces there.

[VIDEO = AUTHENTIC!] Watch – “Rejoicing in the streets of Jenin”

“Rumors of War: ‘CNN used old footage to fake images of ‘Palestinians dancing in the street’ after the terrorist attack on the USA'” (Urban Legends Reference Pages, 2001/09/23)

“No, CNN did not air decade-old footage of Palestinians dancing in the streets. Eason Jordan, CNN’s Chief News Executive, confirmed that the video used on CNN was in fact shot on Tuesday, 11 September 2001, in East Jerusalem by a Reuters TV crew, not during the Persian Gulf conflict of 1990-91… …

Reuters, the international news agency whose camera crew shot the footage, issued the following statement: “Reuters rejects as utterly baseless an allegation being circulated by e-mail and the Internet claiming that it circulated 10-year-old videotape to illustrate Palestinians celebrating in the wake of the September 11 tragedies in the United States. Reuters welcomes a statement by the Universidad Estatal de Campinas-Brasil (UNICAMP), one of whose students was the author of the original e-mail, setting the record straight.

The videotape in question was shot in East Jerusalem by a Reuters camera crew on September 11 in the immediate aftermath of the attacks on the United States. The footage was broadcast by CNN and other subscribers to the Reuters video news service.'”.

Al-Qaeda: Kill the Christians

By Patrick Poole Friday, November 17, 2006

An al-Qaeda manual made a surprise reappearance on October 31st in a new repackaged, reformatted edition on an online jihadi forum associated with the terrorist organization. The manual, A Guide for the Undecided on the Legitimacy of Killing Christians, (Irshad al-Hayara fi Ibahat Dimaa al-Nasara) made its first appearance back in September 2002, published by the al-Qaeda “think tank,” the now defunct Center for Islamic Research and Study, in their bi-weekly magazine, Sawt al-Jihad (The Voice of Jihad). Translated excerpts from the 56-page manual, authored by Hafid Abu-Basir, are available from the Site Institute.
