Nigeria must brace itself for more Boko Haram terrorist attacks

Nigeria must brace itself for more Boko Haram terrorist attacks

Murad Makhmudov and Lee Jay Walker

Modern Tokyo Times

  

Nigeria is multi-ethnic and multi-religious and you have many different religious denominations within Christianity and Islam, which are the two dominant religious groups in this county.  However, from a religious point of view then Boko Haram and other radical Islamist groups are the biggest threat to religious pluralism. Therefore, the recent terrorist attacks by Islamists on Christmas Day aren’t a surprise because Boko Haram is intent on spreading Islamic jihad in Nigeria.

Christians and the majority Muslim community which opposes Boko Haram all fear the rise of this Islamic terrorist organization. The armed forces and local government officials in areas where Boko Haram are based also fear the growing rise of this militant terrorist movement.

In 2009 three Christian pastors were captured by Boko Haram and Sabo Yukubu, Sylvester Akpan, and George Orji were tortured by their Islamist captors. Boko Haram gave them the choice of life or death in this world because if all three Christian pastors converted to Islam, then they would be spared. However, these three brave Christian martyrs remained firm to their faith and because of this they were killed brutally.

The spirit of Sabo Yukubu, Sylvester Akpan, and George Orji, couldn’t be crushed and in death these individuals have shown the path ahead for the people of Nigeria, irrespective of ethnicity or religion. This applies to the spirit of “love” and not the dark forces of Boko Haram who kill innocent Christians and Muslims who refuse to bow down to their brutal ideology.

Therefore, the Christmas Day terrorist attacks which took place in Nigeria is a stern warning to the government of this country that this dangerous ideology is a threat to national security. In Nigeria the attacks by Boko Haram are clearly religious but often you have inter-religious killings in this nation which have ethnic overtones and the same applies to clashes over power concentration. Given this, any religious organization which threatens others is a major cause of concern for central forces because this could re-ignite religious clashes in other parts of Nigeria.

It is abundantly clear that Boko Haram is intent on spreading their hatred therefore it is essential that rational voices are heard in both the Christian and Muslim community. Therefore, moderate religious leaders on all sides need to work together because Boko Haram is a threat to all people who support a united Nigeria.

President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria commented that “Nigerians must stand as one to condemn them.” Clearly the leader of Nigeria is correct because if Boko Haram fails to ignite inter-communal violence then their power base will be reduced. Also, the central government needs to focus on internal issues related to past corruption and to re-invigorate Nigeria because the potential of this nation is enormous.

In areas where Boko Haram is strong it is clear that the military solution by itself will not work. Therefore, counter-terrorist measures need to be implemented and central power bases need to work more closely with regional leaders who support religious pluralism and a united Nigeria. If this doesn’t happen, then Boko Haram will exploit this political vacuum.  

Since 2002 when Boko Haram was founded the dark forces of this Islamist organization is clear for all to see. This applies to massacres, criminality, religious hatred towards’ Christians, attacks against moderate Muslim leaders, fighting the military of Nigeria, and installing fear into the local population where they are strong.

Guido Westerwelle, the German Foreign Minister, commented that “Even on Christmas Day, the world is not spared from cowardice and the fear of terrorism.” William Hague, UK Foreign Secretary, stated that “These are cowardly attacks on families gathered in peace and prayer to celebrate a day which symbolises harmony and goodwill towards others. I offer my condolences to the bereaved and injured.”

St Theresa’s Church in Madalla, close to Abuja, was the scene of the most barbaric attack on Christmas Day. The death toll from this terrorist attack is currently 35 but it could increase because more than 50 people are injured.

Other terrorist attacks occurred on the same day in northern Nigeria. Therefore, the government of Nigeria needs to implement counter-terrorist measures to tackle this dangerous Islamist organization. Given this, it is essential that moderate religious leaders work together in the Christian and Muslim community in order to prevent more people from joining Boko Haram. Also, Nigeria needs national unity and all citizens who are proud to be Nigerian must work together in order to prevent the dark forces of Islamic terrorism and ethnic chauvinism from tearing this country apart.

Another violent Ramadan in the House of Islam

Another violent Ramadan in the House of Islam

 Lee Jay Walker     –  The Modern Tokyo Times

Another terrorist attack in Pakistan by Islamic fanatics

Another terrorist attack in Pakistan by Islamic fanatics

Despite the platitudes by President Obama about Islam being based on peace, the cold reality is very different.  After all, peace and Islam do not go hand-in-hand because Islamic Sharia law is not based on equality, on the contrary it is about the supremacy of Muslims over the non-Muslim dhimmis. 

Also, the central aspect of Islam is clearly about Mohammed and not God. Muslims follow what Mohammed did and not what God ordained and for non-Muslims this appears that Muslims have a “duality” because God appears to come a poor second to Mohammed.

Yet when you delve into the reality of the real Mohammed then it is clear that modern Islam is based on the sayings of Mohammed, the life of Mohammed, and so forth.  Did God ordain that old men can marry young children?  Of course not, however, the marriage age of children in Saudi Arabia is based on Mohammed.

The Islamic concept is not about God but what Mohammed did.  Therefore, because he married a young child it means that old Muslim males can marry very young children in the land of Mecca and Medina.  The same applies to a multitude of sins which Mohammed did and said, and this is why violence, Mohammed, and Islam, are part and parcel of the same thing.

Therefore, violence during Ramadan is natural because Islam is based on the hatred of others and Islam justifies jihad, enslavement, murder of infidels and apostates, and so forth. Given this, the blood keeps running and flowing in accordance with the tenets of Islam and the life of Mohammed.

Mohammed stated to (Koran 9:29) “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”

Since Ramadan began in 2010 we have had countless suicide attacks or attacks against innocents in Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, Somalia, Pakistan, and other majority Muslim based nations.  At the same time the last surviving Jain temple was attacked by Islamic zealots in Kashmir and Sikhs have been told to convert to Islam or face death in Pakistan.

Even during the ongoing flood tragedy in Pakistan you have no let up and no love or compassion amongst the religion of hate.  This applies to Ahmadiyya Muslims being bypassed for economic aid at the expense of the dominant Sunni Muslim population.

However, Islam is based on “shaky grounds” because are we to really believe that Angel Gabriel was talking to Mohammed all the time?  Also, when Mohammed was visiting all his wives, concubines, and child bride, then what was Angel Gabriel doing? 

Therefore, the story of Mohammed in the later years when he obtained power is about his daily sexual drive and visiting all his females, while praying 5 times a day and talking to Angel Gabriel.  Also, during jihadist attacks by Mohammed and massacring Jews and Pagans, we are meant to believe that all this was sanctioned by Angel Gabriel, which implies God.

Given this, the Muslim God allowed Mohammed to have more wives than any other Muslim male and the Muslim God allows Mohammed to kill and plunder and then enslave innocents who had been free.

It is sheer madness to anyone with a rational mind, however, this madness is ongoing and the liberal version in the West is very far from the real version.   Therefore, just like the madness of Mohammed having sex with so many wives, a child, and several concubines, while still praying to God in between.  The same twisted thought pattern continues within Islam in the 21st century, just like it had in the 7th century.

Therefore, modern day Islamic jihadists pray to God and kill, and then pray again to God and somehow they believe that this is holy.  However, what was holy about Mohammed and what is holy about Islam?   

The liberal West is “prostituting itself” in the name of political correctness, the fear of being deemed religionist, and because of the inherent weaknesses within the democratic system. This in turn enables Islamists to spread their evil message via a dual policy.

On the one hand we have radical Islamists being given a safe haven in America, the UK, India, and other democratic nations, and this can be seen by homegrown terrorists and radical organizations.  Yet on the other hand we have the dual aspect based on “stealth jihad,” whereby converts or liberal Muslims or Muslims espousing taqiyya and kitman are laying the foundation for the destruction of the host nation. 

India is a prime example, after all they faced the “duality” of this Islamic jihad and this jihad is still ongoing in India.  The Buddhists and Hindus, and others like the Jains and Sikhs, were shown the sword of Islam and many heads were beheaded in the name of Mohammed and so-called Islamic justice.  At the same time the Sufi’s were sent to India in order to create confusion and many converts to Islam were also gained this way.

This is one form of the “stealth jihad” but you have so many ways of creating confusion in order to obtain power by deception.  Therefore, the words by President Obama about Islam and peace and the ongoing situation about a new mosque being built so close to September 11th is part and parcel of this duality.   

Therefore, behind the real Ramadan is death and violence but world leaders and companies will prostitute themselves for oil, business contracts, and other factors.  The same applies to mega banks who desire to enter the Islamic banking sector.

Given this, it is yet another bloody Ramadan and the religion of jihad and stealth jihad continues to wage an “open war” and a “hidden war.”  Of course, the “hidden war” is much more dangerous and because of people like President Obama and political leaders in the UK, the advancement of Islam continues under the banner of “peace.”

However, “real Islam” can be seen by “the soul of Ramadan” which still witnesses death, terrorism, forced dhimmitude, and persecution.  Even during the so-called holy period of Islam it is the same; death, terror, hatred, jihad, and stealth jihad.

Islamic Ramadan begins, blood keeps flowing

Islamic Ramadan Begins, Blood Keeps Flowing

 Lee Jay Walker  – The Modern Tokyo Times

 
 

The period of Ramadan is meant to be a holy period for Muslims and this applies to fasting and other things. However, in reality Ramadan is just another month for Islamists and daily killings take place. Therefore, why do Islamists keep on terrorizing during the so-called holy period of Ramadan?

After all, shortly before the run-up to Ramadan in 2010 you have the usual Islamic carnage of terrorism, sectarian violence, and so forth. This applies to many people being killed in Sunni-Shia related issues in Yemen; inter Sunni Muslim fighting in Somalia; inter Sunni Muslim deaths in Pakistan; and the daily carnage in Afghanistan and Iraq continues.

Yet after only a few days of the new Ramadan period in 2010 it is abundantly clear that Islamists are bent on killing both fellow Muslims and non-Muslims.

In my article titled “USA appeases Islam under President Obama” I rebuke Obama openly for manipulating reality. The current ongoing violence is yet another example of the bloodthirsty nature of radical Islam and I would argue, of Islam itself, but I will come back to this later.

I stated in my article about Obama that “In the world of Obama he states that the rituals of Ramadan “remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.” Therefore, what “justice” and “tolerance” is Obama talking about?”

If we look at events before Ramadan and during Ramadan, then it is abundantly clear that even during the holy month of Islam that the blood keeps on flowing.

Therefore, why so much violence during Ramadan? Or is the question pointless given the nature of Islam itself when we focus on the Hadiths and the Koran?

Before focusing on both these two questions, it is important to state that I am talking about the tenets of Islam and not ordinary Muslims. After all, much of the current Sunni Islamic violence is aimed at fellow Muslims and I would argue that Muslims are the first victims of Islam because they are regulated by laws which infringe on their civil liberty.

Remember, if a Zoroastrian converts to Christianity in Iran or the other way around, then the individual is free to do so or at the very least they will not suffer for leaving their past religion. However, if a Muslim converts to Christianity or Buddhism in Iran then they face either death or prison.

Therefore, complete mind control is being used against Muslims in order to maintain their allegiance to the Islamic faith. After all, apostates in Saudi Arabia and Somalia face death, and honour killings, persecution or alienation of former Muslims is taking place throughout the world.

Of course, in all other areas of Islam it is clear that non-Muslims are at a major disadvantage or they face complete annihilation, just like Buddhists and Hindus who were annihilated in Afghanistan in past history.

This applies to the very nature of Islam itself because Islamic Sharia law discriminates against all non-Muslims. For can any Muslim person state where Islamic Sharia law allows Muslims to freely leave Islam or where non-Muslims have equality in Islamic Sharia law?

Even today, in 2010, you have 7 Islamic nations which support the death penalty for leaving the Islamic faith and of course these nations are based on Islamic Sharia law and enforcing dhimmitude on all non-Muslims. Therefore, is this hatred a natural dimension to the worldview of Islamic radicalism or should I say radical Islamic fascism?

Remember, in nations like Saudi Arabia, the sizeable non-Muslim migrant population isn’t allowed to build one single Buddhist temple, Christian church or Hindu temple. Therefore, we are not seeing mutual respect or justice, like Obama states, in the land of Mecca and Medina. On the contrary, we are seeing regulated hatred towards non-Muslims via Islamic Sharia law and complete mind control of Muslims because they face death if they desire to leave Islam in Saudi Arabia.

Therefore, where does all this hatred come from? Alas, it is clear to many where this inspired hatred comes from but of course this does not mean that the majority of Muslims are violent, of course not; Muslims are mere individuals just like atheists, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, and so forth.

However, Muslims have strict guidelines to follow and if a Muslim is to follow the guidelines of the Hadiths, the Koran, and Islamic Sharia law completely; then the outcome is obvious to Islamists because this means the implementation of laws which infringe on the rights of non-Muslims and limits the freedom of moderate Muslims.

If we return to Ramadan and why Islamists continue to kill during this so-called holy period then I would state that it is because of the nature of Islam itself.

Mohammed stated to (Koran 9:29) “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”

Of course apologists or liberals will gloss over this statement and countless others; however, for Islamists or normal Muslim religious leaders in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and many other nations, they firmly believe that it is their duty to Islamize the nation state and then to spread Islamization and to install a new Islamic caliphate where the nation state is unimportant.

Despite this, in history it is clear that Islam was never united because divisions soon engulfed Islam and early Muslim rulers were often killed by Muslims. However, from the very outset of Islam it was clear that violence was part and parcel of the Muslim faith because Mohammed ordered attacks against Jews and Pagans.

It is clear that Mohammed did not support the concepts of either the Buddha or Jesus. After all, the Buddha and Jesus were not interested about military power or state sanctioned control and they never ordered the killings of others or inflicted violence towards others.

Mohammed, however, states the following:

“O Prophet! Make war against the unbelievers [all non-Muslims] and the hypocrites and be merciless against them. Their home is hell, an evil refuge indeed.” (Koran, 9:73)

“When you meet the unbelievers in jihad [holy war], chop off their heads. And when you have brought them low, bind your prisoners rigorously. Then set them free or take ransom from them until the war is ended.” (Koran, 47:4)

“The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and his messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be to be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet and genitals cut off, or to be expelled out of the land. Such will be their humiliation in the world, and in the next world they will face an awful horror.” (Koran, 5:33-34)

“When we decide to destroy a population, we send a definite order to them who have the good things in life and yet sin. So that Allah’s word is proven true against them, then we destroy them utterly.” (Koran, 17:16-17)

“In order that Allah may separate the pure from the impure, put all the impure ones [all non-Muslims] one on top of another in a heap and cast them into hell. They will have been the ones to have lost.” (Koran, 8:37)

“How many were the populations we utterly destroyed because of their sins, setting up in their place other peoples.” (Koran, 21:11)

“Remember Allah inspired the angels: I am with you. Give firmness to the believers. I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: you smite them above their necks and smite all their fingertips off of them.” (Koran, 8:12)

Qur’an-(5:51): “O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. ”

Qur’an-(9:5): “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, And seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent (accept Islam) and establish regular prayers and practices regular charity then open the way for them; for God is oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.”

These statements by Mohammed also show how he changed because when he was weak he spoke about compassion, however, once he obtained power his true message changed and in many ways, this is the danger of the stealth jihad which is implemented via propaganda.

However, it is vital to remember that Islamists, be they clerics in Saudi Arabia who are inciting violence towards all apostates and non-Muslims; or if an Islamist like Osama Bin Laden; they are abiding by the Koran, the Hadiths, and Islamic Sharia law.

Apologists and liberals will point out that other holy books have negative passages or passages which incite hatred; and this is partly true, however, it is clear that all religions reform themselves and in the 21st century the message of hatred is still strong in Islam.

More worrying, is that Islam is not a mere religion, it is a way of life and which supports the supremacy of Muslims over non-Muslims. Islam is a fusion of faith, indoctrination, a legal system based on discrimination towards non-Muslims, authoritarianism, and the theory of dhimmitude; and Islam is a religion which rewards Muslims for fighting against non-Muslims.

Even during Ramadan it is clear that war is sanctioned and Mohammed himself prepared Muslims for war during this so-called holy month; therefore, the current massacres and killings are an ongoing tradition in Islam with roots in Mohammed and his teachings and deeds.

Maulana Noor Muhammad, a spokesman for the Islamic organization Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam which is based in Pakistan, stated Muhammad often undertook battles during Ramadan.

He continued that “In such pious times, participate in jihad and continue the support to the mujahideen.” “Nowadays, infidel forces want to destroy Islam and the Koranic orders. The fight [against the infidels] is not the responsibility of Taliban and Arab mujahedeen alone; rather it is the responsibility of the entire Ummah [Muslim world].’’

Given this, the ongoing persecution of all non-Muslims is still being implemented in the cradle of Islam, Saudi Arabia, and this hatred is also being enforced in many other mainly Islamic nations.

Today, just like the 7th century, Islam is still killing apostates or persecuting them. Today, just like in the 7th century, Muslims are still waging wars against non-Muslims in countless numbers of nations. Today, just like the 7th century, Muslim fanatics are still killing fellow Muslims who are deemed to be not Muslim enough.

The apologists will keep on making excuses; however, it is clear that in many parts of the Islamic dominated world, that hatred still dictates. Therefore, in 2010, just like in the 7th century, non-Muslims still suffer enormous persecution and some Islamists are still dreaming of spreading Islam by the sword or by propaganda.

Anyone who doubts this threat should focus on Saudi Arabia because in the land of Mecca and Medina they still support killing apostates, persecuting all non-Muslims, persecuting Shia Muslims, and exporting this hatred to many nations.

Aceh in Indonesia and Islamic Sharia law

Aceh in Indonesia and Islamic Sharia law

 

By Lee Jay Walker
Tokyo Correspondent –  THE SEOUL TIMES

 

 THE MODERN TOKYO TIMES

Flag of Aceh. The Free Aceh Movement (Indonesian: Gerakan Aceh Merdeka: GAM), also known as the Aceh Sumatra National Liberation Front (ASNLF), was a separatist group seeking independence for the Aceh region of Sumatra from Indonesia.

The nation of Indonesia is multi-ethnic and multi-religious but just like Nigeria religious issues and tensions remain. In northern Nigeria many states in the north were allowed to introduce Sharia Islamic law, however, for Christian minorities this was a nightmare because they became threatened by the brutal reality of Islamic Sharia law. Therefore, will Aceh inspire Islamists in other parts of Indonesia in the future and what about being equal in law?

In the past you had a brutal civil war in Aceh between the Free Aceh Movement who wanted either an independent state or real autonomy within Indonesia. However, the tragic events of the tsunami in 2004 altered the internal situation and central forces and the Free Aceh Movement both compromised in order to resolve many long standing issues.

Prior to the tsunami in 2004 the civil war had been ongoing and in 2001 the government of Indonesia allowed a broader role of Islamic Sharia Law in Aceh. However, this was also followed by a fresh Indonesian military offensive in 2003-2004 but events would unfold after the tsunami and a peace deal was struck in 2005 between the Free Aceh Movement and the government of Indonesia.

The region of Aceh is diverse but the vast majority of people follow Islam and this applies to approximately 98% of the population. The other 2% of people in Aceh are Buddhist, Christian, or Hindu. However, in Indonesia the religious issue is complex because despite the majority of people being Muslim you still have sizeable minorities who follow other religions.

Christianity is the second major faith in Indonesia and accounts for 9% to 13% of the entire population. Also, in recent decades this faith is growing and thriving despite bouts of persecution. Therefore, just like in Nigeria, the role of Islamic Sharia law is serious because many minorities fear religious persecution and discrimination.

Many provinces throughout Indonesia have opted to implement aspects of Islamic Sharia law but these infringements have been limited in scope when compared to Aceh. For according to reports in recent days the region of Aceh will allow people to be stoned to death in cases of adultery and other draconian laws based on Sharia will also be implemented.

Therefore, the slippery slope is starting to gain in momentum and this bodes ill for Indonesia just like it does for northern Nigeria. After all, in northern Nigeria you have many tensions between Christians and Muslims and only recently you had more Christian martyrs beheaded by radical Islamists.

Currently in Indonesia it is clear that Christians face pressure and restrictions in Aceh, West Java and South Sulawesi and the role of Islamic Sharia law will only add to this problem. In other parts of Indonesia, for example North Sulawesi and Papua, Christians form a majority while sizeable communities can be found around Lake Toba in North Sumatra, Maluku, and other parts of Indonesia.

In Padang in West Sumatra you are seeing growing infringements on non-Muslims because all females must wear headscarves irrespective if Christian, Muslim, Hindu, or whatever faith or no faith. Also, in some parts of Indonesia radical Islamists are putting pressure on local leaders about preventing new Christian churches to be built or to close down churches.

Indonesian Islam was always very diverse because of past influences and traits of Hinduism and Buddhism can be found throughout a vast part of Indonesia. However, in modern day Indonesia it is clear that radical Islamic networks are trying to impose a more brutal and harsh version of Islam and this bodes ill for Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Aceh was always different because Islam was firmly established a long time ago and conservative versions are more natural in this part of Indonesia. Yet it is like northern Nigeria, how can non-Muslims feel secure or equal under Sharia Islamic law?

If you have a legal system which is based on equality for all ethnic and religious groups then the threat of control is lifted. However, what will happen in Aceh if a Muslim converts to Christianity, Hinduism, or any other religion? Will this individual be killed like it states in the Koran and the Hadiths?

Also, in the future non-Muslim missionary work may be curtailed while Middle Eastern funding continues to spread a dark shadow over Indonesia. Even more alarming, radical Sunni Islamists will be encouraged and they will increasingly put pressure on minorities by spreading radical Islam and enforcing dhimmitude on all minorities.

The Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) and other similar organizations are determined to Islamize both moderate Islam in Indonesia and society on the whole. They propagate their version of Islam and then persecute minorities like Ahmadiyya Muslims and Christians.

Therefore, in modern day Indonesia the threat of radical Islam is real and the implementation of stoning people to death for adultery is a slippery step and one that is all too common in the history of Islamization.

After all, in Afghanistan you once had Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims, and many branches of Islam were once more moderate in this nation. Yet in time the fullness of Islam was implemented via the teachings of the Koran, the Hadiths, and the implementation of Islamic Sharia law and the consequences of this was the destruction of Buddhism and Hinduism.

Indonesia is still “a young democracy” and this nation is extremely diverse in terms of ethnicity and religion but in the past pluralism won the day. However, today this pluralism is being threatened on many fronts and the introduction of stoning people to death for adultery in Aceh could further embolden other regions to implement Sharia in full.

Given this, it is essential for all minorities to work together and alongside moderate Muslims in order to preserve a society based on secularism. The “heart” of Indonesia faces many challenges but this issue could tear this nation apart if it gets out of control.

Radical Islamists will also do their best to spread hatred and their hatred is indeed deep. Therefore, the government of Indonesia must do more to tackle this issue and appeasing Islamists is not the way forward because they want to spread the Islamic culture and to enforce a monoculture on the people of Indonesia.

Islamic Ramadan: but blood keeps flowing

Islamic Ramadan: but blood keeps flowing

 

By Lee Jay Walker
THE MODERN TOKYO TIMES

 
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured; from dawn until dusk.

However, in reality, Ramadan is just another period where killing in the name of Islam continues.

The period of Ramadan is meant to be a holy period for Muslims and this applies to fasting and other things. However, in reality Ramadan is just another month for Islamists and daily killings take place. Therefore, why do Islamists keep on terrorizing during the so-called holy period of Ramadan?

Yet after only a few days of the new Ramadan period in 2009 it was abundantly clear that Islamists were bent on killing both fellow Muslims and non-Muslims.  Of course, the same pattern will follow in 2010 and the year after because Islamic radicals hate diversity.

In my article titled “USA appeases Islam under President Obama” I rebuke Obama openly for manipulating reality. The current ongoing violence is yet another example of the bloodthirsty nature of radical Islam and I would argue, of Islam itself, but I will come back to this later.

“In order that Allah may separate the pure from the impure, put all the impure ones [all non-Muslims] one on top of another in a heap and cast them into hell. They will have been the ones to have lost.” (Koran, 8:37)

“How many were the populations we utterly destroyed because of their sins, setting up in their place other peoples.” (Koran, 21:11)

“Remember Allah inspired the angels: I am with you. Give firmness to the believers. I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: you smite them above their necks and smite all their fingertips off of them.” (Koran, 8:12)

Qur’an-(5:51): “O you who believe! Do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. “

Qur’an-(9:5): “But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, And seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war); but if they repent (accept Islam) and establish regular prayers and practices regular charity then open the way for them; for God is oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.”

These statements by Mohammed also show how he changed because when he was weak he spoke about compassion, however, once he obtained power his true message changed and in many ways, this is the danger of the stealth jihad which is implemented via propaganda.

However, it is vital to remember that Islamists, be they clerics in Saudi Arabia who are inciting violence towards all apostates and non-Muslims; or if an Islamist like Osama Bin Laden; they are abiding by the Koran, the Hadiths, and Islamic Sharia law.

Apologists and liberals will point out that other holy books have negative passages or passages which incite hatred; and this is partly true, however, it is clear that all religions reform themselves and in the 21st century the message of hatred is still strong in Islam.

More worrying, is that Islam is not a mere religion, it is a way of life and which supports the supremacy of Muslims over non-Muslims. Islam is a fusion of faith, indoctrination, a legal system based on discrimination towards non-Muslims, authoritarianism, and the theory of dhimmitude; and Islam is a religion which rewards Muslims for fighting against non-Muslims.

Even during Ramadan it is clear that war is sanctioned and Mohammed himself prepared Muslims for war during this so-called holy month; therefore, the current massacres and killings are an ongoing tradition in Islam with roots in Mohammed and his teachings and deeds.

Maulana Noor Muhammad, a spokesman for the Islamic organization Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam which is based in Pakistan, stated Muhammad often undertook battles during Ramadan.

He continued that “In such pious times, participate in jihad and continue the support to the mujahideen.” “Nowadays, infidel forces want to destroy Islam and the Koranic orders. The fight [against the infidels] is not the responsibility of Taliban and Arab mujahedeen alone; rather it is the responsibility of the entire Ummah [Muslim world].’’

Given this, the ongoing persecution of all non-Muslims is still being implemented in the cradle of Islam, Saudi Arabia, and this hatred is also being enforced in many other mainly Islamic nations.

Today, just like the 7th century, Islam is still killing apostates or persecuting them. Today, just like in the 7th century, Muslims are still waging wars against non-Muslims in countless numbers of nations. Today, just like the 7th century, Muslim fanatics are still killing fellow Muslims who are deemed to be not Muslim enough.

The apologists will keep on making excuses; however, it is clear that in many parts of the Islamic dominated world, that hatred still dictates. Therefore, in 2009, just like in the 7th century, non-Muslims still suffer enormous persecution and some Islamists are still dreaming of spreading Islam by the sword or by propaganda.

Anyone who doubts this threat should focus on Saudi Arabia because in the land of Mecca and Medina they still support killing apostates, persecuting all non-Muslims, persecuting Shia Muslims, and exporting this hatred to many nations.
