This says it all about the enemy. And the West keeps kissing the ring of the OIC, CAIR, MAS, MSU and Muslim jihad groups worldwide. This scourge must be defeated.
Weakness and submission is a suicide mission.
‘Leave orphans’: Twisted words of bus bomber," NY Post, December 31, 2013
Russian investigators scoured the gutted remains of a trolley bus destroyed by a suicide bomber on Monday and said a former paramedic who converted to Islam and joined a terrorist underground was responsible for another horrific attack at a train station just hours before.
Fourteen people were killed in the bus blast in Volgograd, while 17 died in the explosion at the city’s train hub.
Officials said little about the bus bomber but identified the earlier attacker as Pavel Pechyonkin, who left a note to his mother and vanished from his home more than a year ago to join militants in the Dagestan region.
“I have come here only to make Allah happy, to earn heaven,” he said in a video posted on YouTube earlier this year after his parents pleaded with him in their own video to renounce terror.
“Why should we follow those Christian commandments, when Allah, may he be glorified, urges us to fight those kafirs [infidels]?” he added. “Why shouldn’t we leave their children orphans?”
Qasim Rashid is an Ahmadi Muslim; I debated him here. Despite the fact that Ahmadis are persecuted, oppressed and slaughtered in Muslim countries, Qasim Rashid carries water for his oppressors and furthers the Islamic supremacist war against freedom of speech. He also whitewashes the Qur'an's justification for domestic abuse. Nuts.
Fox News publishes piece whitewashing jihad violence and proselytizing for Ahmadi Islam Robert Spencer at Jihadwatch
Fair and balanced. Can you imagine Fox, or any other news outlet, running a piece like this proselytizing for Christianity? Exhorting people to revere and follow Pope Francis? Media Matters would be in an uproar, it would be all over the networks, and Fox would remove the piece and apologize. But this one is just fine with everyone.
"Meet the Muslim Mandela," by Qasim Rashid for Fox News, December 28:A recent FoxNews.com op-ed asks, "Where is the Muslim Mandela?" While alleging that such a person does not exist, and that Muslims do not seek such a person, the piece provides a laundry list of injustices done by extremists in the name of Islam -- and holds 1.56 billion Muslims responsible.
Click on the link and read the piece to which Rashid is referring. He doesn't tell you that it is written by a reformist Muslim, Qanta Ahmed. Rashid caricatures Ahmed's piece as holding "1.56 billion Muslims responsible" for jihad terror, obscuring her valid and important point that peaceful Muslims who claim to reject jihad violence need to act against it rather than simply contenting themselves with issuing pro-forma condemnations.
Why would Rashid want to obscure that point? One clue may be in the fact that, although he is an Ahmadi, and thus a member of a group that mainstream Muslims violent persecute as heretical, he consistently carries water for his persecutors, whitewashing the reality of jihad violence and Sharia oppression. Rashid has lied about the Qur'an's sanction of deception of unbelievers; lied about the presence of violent passages in the Qur'an; lied about the Qur'an's sanction of beating disobedient women; lied about the nature of Sharia; and called for limitations on the freedom of speech and expression to outlaw behavior and speech some Muslims may find offensive. So it is hardly surprising, given these revealing indications of his true sentiments, that he would object to a piece calling upon peaceful Muslims to fight actively against jihad terrorists.
"Mischievous" slaughter. Your man in the White House, sanctioning savagery in the cause of Allah.
The shirtless horseman is unlikely to need the helmeted bike rider's help. "Russia's Putin Vows to Fight Terrorists Until Destroyed," from the VOA News, December 31 (thanks to Kenneth):
Russian President Vladimir Putin has vowed to fight terrorists until their "total destruction," following the two suicide bombings in the southern city of Volgograd on Sunday and Monday that left 34 people dead.
In his annual New Years address, Putin said that at the country's most trying times, Russia has always been united and consolidated.
Russian authorities have deployed more than 5,000 security force personnel in and around Volgograd in the wake of the bombings.
The more I see of the galloping Islamization of Britain, the more the ban on my entry makes ..... sense. They have gone country mad, like this case in point, perverting the justice system to protect those charged with (and found guilty of) perverting the course of justice.
Daily Mail lifts veil of secrecy judge threw over trial of two Muslim lawyers on trial for perverting the course of justice 'for cultural reasons' By Eleanor Harding, Daily Mail, December 30, 2013 (thanks to David W)
- Reporting the case of Asha Khan, 30, and Kashif Khan, 34, was banned
- The order was made to prevent them being shamed in their community
- But after a legal challenge from the Daily Mail, the restrictions were lifted
- Asha Khan was found guilty of attempting to pervert the course of justice
- She and Kashif were said to be involved in a plot to switch speeding points
- But Kashif, Asha's brother, was acquitted after arguing he did not know
Guilty: Asha Khan has been convicted of attempting to pervert the course of justice A judge allowed two Muslim solicitors accused of trying to cheat the legal system to hide behind a cloak of secrecy for ‘cultural reasons’, the Daily Mail can disclose.
He banned reporting of the case of Asha Khan, 30, and her brother Kashif, 34, to prevent them allegedly being shamed in the eyes of their community.
In the latest farce involving secret justice, the pair were told they could enjoy the court’s protection because members of their family would pass judgment if the case was reported.
It is a privilege rarely bestowed on defendants in the justice system, which has operated on the principle of transparency for centuries. However, following a challenge by the Daily Mail, the restriction was lifted – enabling the case to be reported.
Judge Peter Hughes reversed his original ban after deciding that the principle of open justice was more important than saving the embarrassment of a defendant.
'The more I learnt [about Islam] the more interested I became which led to me listening to a lecture by Sheikh Khalid Yaseen, you may have heard of him?
Sheikh Khalid Yasin is a U.S.-born Muslim convert (he was raised as a Christian) and a Malcolm X disciple who has been a popular guest speaker at Muslim Students Association (MSA) events on college campuses across the United States.
He speaks regularly in the US and has appeared with Hamas-CAIR favorite Siraj Wahhaj, the 911 co-conspirator.
CAIR featured Khalid Yasin at a CAIR fundraiser this past February in St. Louis (here). Proving us right, yet again, that the line between moderate and extreme is an allusion. It's more a question of "operative" and/or secular.

Revealed, the U.S. hate preacher who inspired murderer of Lee Rigby: Killer tells how he became a Muslim after watching Islamic hardliner's sermons," Daily Mail, December 30, 2013 (thanks to David W)
- Michael Adebowale praised Khalid Yasin in prison letter to pen pal
- Says extremist preacher who advocates killing gays inspired him to convert to Islam
- Complains that he is alienated from his family because they aren't Muslim
- Also says that most Muslims have rejected him after he murdered soldier
- Adebowale and Michael Adebolajo face life in jail after being convicted of killing Lee Rigby outside Woolwich Barracks
One of the Woolwich killers decided to convert to Islam after being inspired by a hate preacher who advocates killing gays and beating women, he has revealed in a letter.
Michael Adebowale, 22, said that lectures posted online by notorious firebrand cleric Sheikh Khalid Yasin taught him the ‘purpose of life’.
In the note written from Belmarsh Prison, he said he made the decision to convert to Islam in 2009 – around the same time that he was serving half of a 15-month sentence for supplying heroin.

Nigeria: Muslims murder 12 Christians in attacks on two Christian villages -- 8 at wedding reception (thanks to Robert Spencer)
The Christian leaders who are silent about who does this killing and why, for fear of offending their Muslim "dialogue" partners in the West, have a great deal to answer for.
"Extremists kill 12 in Nigerian Christian villages," from the Associated Press, December 30 (thanks to Kenneth):MAIDUGURI, Nigeria — Witnesses say suspected Islamic militants killed 12 civilians in weekend attacks on two Christian villages in Muslim-dominated northeast Nigeria. One attack targeted a wedding party.
The witnesses said eight victims died when extremists attacked a wedding reception at Tashan-Alede village in Borno state late Saturday night, and four in neighboring Kwajffa village on Sunday.
A security official confirmed the attacks but said they did not yet have casualty figures. All spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.
The leader of a 4-year-old Islamic uprising that has killed thousands in northeast Nigeria recently threatened to target Christians. Village attacks have become common with many more Muslims than Christians killed this year.
The attacks have continued despite a state of emergency and the deployment of thousands of troops since May.
Echoing what the London jihad beheader said, what the 911 Muslim terrorists said, the Fort Hood jihadi said, the Kenya mall slaughterers said, and the Boston bombers said.....different language, same ideology. The misunderstanders are the apologists, relativists and dhimmis who cover for these killers.
We are constantly admonished that Islamic jihadists are misunderstanders of Islam, and that Islam teaches peace. Yet jihadists constantly invoke the quran to justify their murders. When will government and law enforcement authorities drop their self-deception and call upon Muslims to expunge the quran of its texts that incite Muslims to violence (and Jew-hatred, and misogyny, and kaffir-hatred)?
Paents of 'Volgograd Train Station Bomber' Pleaded for His Return (Video) The Moscow Times via Halal PorkShop (thanks to Religion of Peace) December 31, 2013
The Volgograd train station bomb that killed at least 17 people on Sunday was set off by a Russian man from the nearby region of Mary El who had converted to Islam and joined Dagestani militants, officials said.
The suspect, identified as Pavel Pechyonkin, worked as a paramedic with an ambulance service but left home in 2011 and joined Dagestani militants after converting to Islam and changing his name to Ansar Ar-rusi.
In response to his parents' video appeals for him to come home, Pechyonkin posted his own video online this spring, saying he was following God's will and would not turn back.
"I have come here only to make Allah pleased with me, to earn heaven," he said in the video.
Happy new year, Islamic style.
(thanks to Jihadwatch)BAGHDAD, Dec 31 (Reuters) - Bombs exploded across the Iraqi capital on Tuesday, killing at least 15 people, police and medical sources said, a day after police broke up a Sunni Muslim protest camp in a western province.
More interfaith dialogue and tolerance from savages. Muslim leadership constantly beat us about the head with demands for "interfaith dialogue." They not only butcher people, they butcher language.
Imagine: devout Muslims are hunting down a Christian group for worshipping in their own mother language. The Malaysian government won't authorize the construction of churches, so Christian groups rent or convert shop lots and warehouses to use as a place of worship. This group's activity at a hotel was a private function, yet the (Muslim) morality police is going to hunt them down.
It is illegal for Christians to use the word alah for god in Malaysia.
Why Christians would want to use the word allah for god is beyond me. Allah bears no resemblance to Hashem or Jesus Christ.
"Selangor religious authorities hunt for Christians who used ‘Allah’ illegally," Malaysian Insider, December 25, 2013 (hat tip Tracy)
It might be Christmas Day cheer across the world but Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) officials are not feeling the festive occasion as they look for a Christian group that used the word “Allah” in their worship illegally last weekend.
Malay newspapers had reported that the Christian group had allegedly used “Allah” at their Sunday function at a hotel in Klang, reigniting the battle for the word which is now before the country's apex court.
A Court of Appeal ruling decided that the home minister has the power to restrict use of the world.

"Death Penalty Order Deepens Hard-line Islamist Trend in Pakistan, Critics Say," December 30, 2013 By Our Pakistan Correspondent, Morningstar News
Ruling could broaden powers of Federal Shariat Court, they fear.
LAHORE, Pakistan (Morning Star News) – Compliance with an order that only the death sentence can be given to those convicted of insulting Islam’s prophet will further endanger Christians and increase the powers of the Islamic court that issued it, critics said.
While Christians fear that government compliance with the Federal Shariat Court’s (FSC) Dec. 4 order to remove life imprisonment as a punishment for insulting Muhammad could usher in a new era of persecution, some critics say the greater concern is that it could broaden the powers of the controversial court.
Section 295-C of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws calls for either death or life imprisonment for persons convicted of insulting Muhammad. The FSC has given the government a “couple of months” to implement, through parliament, the order to remove life imprisonment as a possible punishment.

"China Says Police Kill 8 'Terrorists' in Xinjiang," ABC News, December 30, 2013
Authorities in western China said Monday that police fatally shot eight "terrorists" who had attacked them using knives and explosives in the latest in a string of violent incidents in the ethnically tense region.
The Xinjiang government news portal Tianshan Net said that the group of nine attacked officers and burned police cars in Shache county, which is overseen by the famed Silk Road city of Kashgar.
It was the latest in a series of attacks pointing to growing unrest in the large sprawling region of Xinjiang, home to a simmering rebellion against Chinese rule among parts of the native Muslim Uighur population who want more autonomy from Beijing. Recent clashes, including an attack on a police station last month, have left dozens of people dead.
A Xinjiang government press officer confirmed Monday's report but said he had no further information. He gave only his surname, Cao. Police reached by phone in Shache and Kashgar said they had no information about the incident.
The Chinese government typically calls such incidents terrorist attacks linked to radicals based overseas, although there is little evidence that they are carefully organized.
More Muslim converts who misunderstand Islam. Enough already. They understand all too well. The problem is in Islam -- and the problem is that we can't talk about the problem. Misunderstanders of Islam. Pathetic.

Indonesia: Muslim threats lead to cancellation of New Year celebrations Asia News, via Creeping, December 30, 2013
Due to the massive protest campaign launched by extremist Islamic groups in recent days, the management of Hermes Palace – a multi-starred hotels in Banda Aceh – have canceled plans for New Year’s Eve. The celebrations for the last day of the year were planned some time ago, but the pressure from fundamentalist movements in Aceh, the only province in Indonesia where Shariah , or Islamic law is in vigor, has led to the evening’s cancellation for safety reasons and public order. Moreover, the Ulema Advisory Council of Banda Aceh (MPU) has called on the Muslim community not to “celebrate” Christmas and New Year because “they are not Islamic holidays”.
Another enormous story that the enemedia deigned to ignore. If it smells like jihad, the media goes into scrub-a-dub-dub mode.
And they ignored it fresh on the heels of the jihad attack on our streets in Boston just the day before. Astonishing. It's what I have been telling you: the media is the enemy.

"Not amateurs taking potshots… this was a dress rehearsal" -- possibly for large-scale attacks on power stations. Although this was initially thought to be related to the Boston Marathon jihad bombing, no connection was established. This may not have been a jihad attack, but it may have been: jihadists have targeted power stations in the UK, so there is no indication that they wouldn't or couldn't do so in the US.

Islamic jihad against Christians
Exclusive: Pamela Geller reveals how Muslims have been celebrating Christmas
With their typical mutual respect, devout Muslims have been celebrating Christmas the world over. Jihad bombers murdered 34 people as Christians were coming out of church on Christmas morning in Baghdad, and Muslims threatened and protested against Christmas celebrations all over the world. Two days after Christmas, Lebanon’s former ambassador to the U.S. and at least four other people were murdered in a car bombing in Beirut. That same day, jihadists killed 10 people with a bomb in a restaurant in Mogadishu and three soldiers with a homicide car bombing in Kabul.
Of course, we all know that it’s Islamophobia that’s the real problem – although I suspect that the victims might not agree. And meanwhile, on Christmas Muslims showed the respect and tolerance they demand from everyone else at a time when Christians are being mercilessly persecuted and slaughtered under Muslim rule across the world.
Jihad hit Russia again, again Stalingrad (Volgograd). The explosion occurred on a crowded bus just after 8am at the height of the morning rush, less than 24 hours after a female homicide bomber blew up the railway station in the same city.
President Vladimir V. Putin’s government has worked to protect the Olympics with some of the most extensive security measures ever imposed for the Games. But the bombings, in Volgograd, underscored the threat the country faces from a radical Islamic insurgency in the North Caucasus that has periodically spilled into the Russian heartland, with deadly results, including several recent attacks.
Security has become a paramount concern at all major international sporting events, especially in the wake of the bombing at the Boston Marathon in April, but never before has an Olympic host country experienced terrorist violence on this scale soon before the Games. And would-be attackers may have more targets in mind than the Russian state.
Current and former American law enforcement and intelligence officials said Sunday that they were more concerned about security in Russia during the Sochi Games than they have been about any other Olympics since Athens in 2004.Russian officials attributed the explosion on Sunday to a bomb packed with shrapnel, possibly carried in a bag or backpack.
But it's islamophobia -- that's the real problem.

An explosion hit a trolleybus near a busy market during the morning rush hour Monday, taking place the day after a blast at Volgograd's main train station killed 17 people and wounded at least 35 others.
Perhaps the NY Times is desperate to stave off impeachment hearings on Obama's treasonous perfidy in Libya on September 11, 2012: A Deadly Mix in Benghazi -- The New York Times
Perhaps the New York Times is trying to shore up the imploding Democrat party by deconstructing the truth on their greatest most lethal failure, Benghazi.
The New York Times published their "investigation" into the Sept. 11th Benghazi attacks on our Ambassador, US attaches and consulate. It is "filled with misleading information, including details contradicted by the U.S. government, Benghazi victims and numerous other previous news reports."
One of the main contentions of the Times piece is that “contrary to claims by some members of Congress,” the Benghazi attack “was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam.” (more here)
The U.S. government knew about al-Qaeda's "pep rally for jihad" in Benghazi that included calls for the murder of American diplomats -- just months before terror attack.
The terrorists who attacked the Benghazi consulate last year knew the location of the safe room where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his security team sought shelter, according to a congressman who spoke for 90 minutes with the diplomatic security agent severely injured in the assault.
"He confirmed this - that it was a very well orchestrated, and well organized, almost a military operation, using military weapons and using military signals," the late Florida Rep. Bill Young said after meeting diplomatic security agent David Ubben at Walter Reed Medical Center last summer, when both were patients there. (more here)
The State Department was told that Benghazi was a "terrorist attack" minutes after it began.
House Intelligence Committee members took to "Fox News Sunday" to question an extensive New York Times report on the 2012 attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, saying the newspaper was wrong to suggest al-Qaeda had no involvement.
Huff Post: "What did they get wrong?" host Chris Wallace asked Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.), chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
"That al-Qaeda was not involved in this," Rogers replied. "There was some level of pre-planning; we know that. There was aspiration to conduct an attack by al-Qaeda and their affiliates in Libya; we know that. The individuals on the ground talked about a planned tactical movement on the compound -- this is the compound before they went to the annex. All of that would directly contradict what The New York Times definitively says was an exhaustive investigation."
Rogers said that his committee has also done an "exhaustive investigation" into what happened in Benghazi, including going through 4,000 classified cables, and that the committee's findings were very different from those of the Times.
"It tells me they didn't talk to the people on the ground who were doing the fighting and shooting and the intelligence gathering," Rogers said. "When you put that volume of information, I think it proves that story is just not accurate."
Wallace also asked Rogers whether he thought there was a political motive for the White House's statements on Benghazi, pointing to speculation that the aim was to "clear the deck" for a presidential run in 2016 by Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time of the attack.
"I find the timing odd," Rogers said. "I don't want to speculate on why they might do it, but I can tell you that the information that's being presented in a way that we heard before ... through the [committee] investigation [we] have been able to determine [it] is not accurate in its portrayal."

GOP congressman blasts NY Times Benghazi claims as ‘misleading’ FOX News, December 29, 2013
A top congressional Republican is saying a new report that concludes Al Qaeda did not carry out the 2012 attack on the U.S diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, is “misleading.”
The new report published Saturday in the New York Times concludes that there was no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012, and that it appeared that the attack was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made anti-Islamic video, as the Obama administration first claimed.
New York Rep. Peter King, member and former chairman of the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told Fox News the argument that the most overtly anti-Western militia, Ansar al-Shariah – not Al Qaeda – led the attack is an academic argument over semantics, considering Ansar al-Shariah is widely believed to be an affiliate terror group of Al Qaeda.
“It’s misleading,” King said. “It’s a distinction without a difference.”
