Taliban in Syria: We Shall Fight Nations of Infidelity: Convert, Leave or Be Killed

from vladtepesblog: Taliban warn unbelievers to convert, leave, or be killed in Syria.

This video footage shows an Arab jihadist surrounded by men carrying weapons, some riding horses, reading a statement from the Islamic Movement of the Taliban, which was originally founded in Afghanistan and headed by Mullah Omar.

The speaker vows not to let any of the Nations of Infidelity — whom he specifically refers to as Shiites and Christians — enjoy any safety or security. He also vows to implement strict Sharia law in Syria.

Egyptian Cleric: Expect Similar Attacks in France (Message of Boston Bombers)

According to this Egyptian cleric in this MEMRI TV Video, the message the Boston bombers conveyed is the following:

 

WE CAN REACH YOU WHENEVER AND WHEREVER WE WANT.”

 

He says:  “These courageous heroes have shifted the battle over to America’s own turf. America has passed its arrogance over to France. France which led the 1st Crusade,  is now leading the war against islam and muslims. They must taste the bitter retribution for their deeds.

 

“This is not a threat, but a warning of what might happen to them. To France in particular, and to American and the entire West….France’s intervention in Mali will not go unanswered, they will suffer catastrophes for this…This stupidity will bring catastrophes on them, just like it did upon America…

 

“The path of al-Qaeda is the path of the koran, which calls upon muslims to wage jihad against infidels who attack them and who intervene in their affairs. This is the path of islam and the koran, it was not invented by Osama or Ayman. It was sent down by allah, and anyone who thinks he can defeat this path, is delusional.

 

“Infidels are those who do not accept islam. They are either original infidels, like the Jews and Christians, or apostates, like the secularists, liberals, Communists or Socialists. Whoever does not accept islam is an infidel. allah said so, not me.”

Omar Bakri, head of Shariah Europe, threatens West with JIHAD & REVENGE for bin Laden's death

What Americans see across the ocean, they will see on their land tomorrow. (this from rightsidenews)

 

In above video, Dutch News (Apr.25/13) interviews Syrian-born religious cleric Omar Bakri, a hate preacher who is the leader of the Sharia movement for Europe and who speaks about his lust for revenge on the unbeliever, from his home in Lebanon.

 

He is also closely linked to al-Qaeda….who isn’t these days?!

 

Bakri is actively recruiting Muslims to join the fight in Syria. He says in the video that “he will incite people to go fight, because allah says to encourage the believers.”

 

In Video: “Shariah4belgium followers were arrested because they were accused of recruiting Belgian youth for the Syria conflict. Bakri says the arrests are an attack on muslims, and they have the right to strike back.”

 

Here’s some background: Bakri lived in London for 20 years (since 1986) and was deported for his religious rants, shortly after the July 7th 2005 London bombings. Bakri was leader of the religious extremist group al-Muhajiroun, which he founded in 1983 in Mecca, and which was disbanded in Nov. 2004 – just before the London bombings, when Bakri said that “all Muslims should unite together against a hostile West.”

 

Al Muhajiroun disbanded, but its insidious ideology continued on in Islam4Uk, formed as an offshoot from al-Muhajiroun, with Anjem Choudary as its leader.

 

He says now: “WHAT DO WE WANT?” – “JIHAD!!!”

 

Bakri promised revenge in the West, warned that al-Qaeda will avenge Osama bin Laden’s death with a massacre. He says the attack would be well-prepared and carried out in AMERICA or in any of its Western allies. (dailyrecord)

 

Now let’s see, when was Osama bin Laden’s body dumped into the sea? May 2nd? We’re only one week away from his death anniversary, and look how many attacks (including thwarted ones) and al-Qaeda terrorists the world has witnessed within the past week:

 

-Boston Marathon massacre

-Thwarted NYC Times Square massacre possibly planned by Boston bombers after their Boston feat;

-Thwarted attack of Montreal-Toronto al-Qaeda terrorists (linked to Iran al-Qaeda) to bomb the Canadian passenger train Via Rail (NYC to Toronto);

-two al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists arrested in Spain (1 Algerian & 1 Moroccan, from NW African branch of al-Qaeda [AQIM] in Spain);

-Aurora IL teen caught boarding a plane in Chicago to join al-Qaeda-linked group to fight in Syria (he attempted to bomb a downtown Chicago bar last year);

-and more….

 

How many more terrorists have been unleashed by the islamic terror network to wreak havoc upon infidels in an attempt to force them to submit to islam? How many more? May 2nd is quickly approaching….

 

But there’s also more and more of us who are not only offended and insulted, but infuriated by their hideous actions that make us that much stronger to oppose their beyond-evil ways.

Major (retired) Stephen C. Coughlin's excellent material on jihad, its meaning and application.

Vladtepesblog:  A good time to repost some of Maj. (ret) Coughlin as a refresher on what is meant when muslims say they are defending the faith. This is critically important, as it is a central defense for islamic attacks on civilians and soft targets. A good refresher on what is meant when muslims say they are defending the faith. This is critically important as its a central defense for islamic attacks on civilians and soft targets.

Stephen Couglin briefed at the Pentagon for national and state law enforcement and intelligence agencies, and on Capitol Hill for Members of Congress. Today he is a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy, and will soon be coming out with a book called Catastrophic Failure.

CB Sashenka: How does islam define the terms “justice” and “freedom”? According to S. Coughlin, in the muslim world, freedom is defined as freedom FROM the laws of man (freedom to allah). Justice is defined as justice according to sharia, and NOT according to Western principles of Human Rights and Freedoms. There you have it.

Boston Bomber's Mosque in Cambridge (Boston, MA) Ties to Terrorosm, Given Subsidy

 

2010, Imam Abdullah Faarooq, in his sermon urges congregants to “go grab onto the shovel, the gun and the sword, do not be afraid to step out into the world to do your job.”

 

He is a senior leader in the Boston muslim community and represents the Muslim American Society’s (MAS) Islamic Cultural Center in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, the largest mosque in the northeast.

This Boston Islamic Center is affiliated with the nearby Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge that younger Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended.

 

It has been found that several of the Roxbury mosque’s leaders, past and present, have ties to terrorism.

 

 

The center’s founder is currently serving a 23-year term in federal prison for an Al Qaeda terror plot.

One of its former trustees, Imam Yousef al-Karadawi (spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood), urges its followers to exterminate Jews and kill homosexuals.  He also said in a 1995 speech that Islam would “conquer America” and “conquer Europe.”


One of its current trustees wrote in Arabic newspapers that Jews are the rapists of the worshippers of allah, and should be scourged.

The most recently added trustee promotes wife beating and demands that muslims establish sharia islamic law wherever they live.

The organization that runs this center is the MSA, the Muslim American Society, has been labelled by federal prosecutors as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, the global radical islamic group that that gave birth to Hamas and Al Qaeda.

Most of the money used to finance this center came from Saudi Arabia and some had terrorist connections. A significant amount was contributed by the City of Boston when Mayor Menino agreed to donate the land in Roxbury valued at over $2 million for a fraction of its worth.

Critics of the center warned, back in 2004, that its leaders would use it to radicalize Boston’s historically moderate muslim community.

It was asked if this islamic center is finished under its current leadership and with its current ideology, will it become, as so many mosques with similar associations have become elsewhere in the U.S., a center for Islamic extremism in our own backyard? Will it become a jihad academy?

It was officially opened in 2009. Since then, several high profile terrorism plots have been linked to its members and leaders…..

Vladtepesblog: Suddenly its an ‘extremist’ mosque where the bomber went. I bet if you asked a week ago you would be called a racist for suggesting it. Well I suggest that if you stick around any Friday after prayers long enough you will hear incentive to commit acts of islam upon the unbeliever in 9 out of 10 mosques in the Western world and 11/10 in the Eastern one.

City of Boston gave ‘subsidy’ to bombing suspects’ radical mosque (Apr.19, 2013):

Will Morocco Inflict the Death Penalty for apostasy? ─ Part 2, Cynthia Yacowar-Sweeney, vladtepesblog

April 21, 2013

Cynthia Yacowar-Sweeney

Earlier this week I wrote about Morocco’s religious council prescribing the death penalty for Muslims who commit apostasy from Islam, at AmericanThinker. Vladtepesblog had initially alerted me to Moroccan news website Lakome that reported on the religious council’s fatwa to condemn apostates to death. The Supreme Ulema Council, run by secular King Mohammed Vl of Morocco, consists of religious Muslim scholars (ulema). The Council voiced its opinion on the death penalty back in April 2012, and its fatwa was published last week in Arabic-language Moroccan daily newspaper Akhbar Al Youm.

Condemning apostates to death in Morocco? This is a country recognized as being one of the most moderate of Muslim countries. As the Moroccan regime talks about all the democratic political reforms it made with its new and improved 2011 Constitution, the highest religious government institution in the country talks about killing Muslim apostates.

Here’s some background. For the first time ever in Moroccan history, an Islamist party (the Justice and Development Party or PJD) won power and formed a government in November 2011. However, Morocco’s largest Islamist opposition movement, a more radical Islamist movement banned from politics (the Justice and Charity movement or Al Adl Wal Ihsane) is gaining in popularity and could eventually oust the PJD…or possibly the King. The Justice and Charity movement refuses to recognize the King’s political and religious legitimacy (his title is “commander of the faithful”), rejects foreign intervention, and most importantly, advocates the establishment of an Islamic state in Morocco under Sharia Law. Are the terms “justice” and “charity” of Al Adl Wal Ihsane to be defined according to Islamic law, or according to Western standards?

And why would a member of the radical movement Al Adl Wal Ihsane, a movement that is pro-Shariah, condemn the pro-Sharia ruling of the Supreme Ulema Council, as he did when contacted by Lakome? The former outwardly claimed that “Al Adl Wa Al Ihssan is for the Freedom of Conscience. Our position is based on the principles of Sharia and we regard the Freedom of Conscience as one of its central elements. Moreover, the numerous chapters of the Koran that evoke the subject and affirm Freedom of Conscience, provide the founding principles of Sharia.

If there is no compulsion in religion, as per the Koran (2:256), then why are countless numbers of non-Muslims slaughtered and killed throughout the world? The Al Adl Wal Ihsane member goes on to say that “there exists only one hadith where the prophet says ‘kill those who change religion’, ” basically downplaying the significance of condeming apostates to death.

According to Lakome, a member of another Moroccan Islamist opposition party (Umma) outwardly expressed his surprise by the fatwa, and excused the Council in that it had probably relied on a hadith not from the Sahih al-Bukhari, the most reliable collection. However, the apostasy hadith IS from the most reliable source, Bukhari (and from other reliable sources as well):

Bukhari 52:260 (the Prophet said, ‘If somebody [a Muslim] discards his religion, kill him’) and Bukhari 83:37 (By Allah, Allah’s Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: [1] A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed [2] a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and [3] a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate) and Bukhari 84:57 (statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him’)and more.

The Umma party member added that “it is the text of the Koran that is the reference, and the Koran does not mention the execution of the apostate.” However, the Koran DOES contain verses that indirectly refer to and support the apostasy hadith:

Koran 4:89 (They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.), Koran 5:33 (The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is : execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land : that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter), Koran 3:90 (But those who reject Faith after they accepted it, and then go on adding to their defiance of Faith – never will their repentance be accepted; for they are those who have gone astray) and more.

As I wrote last week, at present, there is no death penalty for apostasy in Morocco….not yet.  Islam is the state religion, according to Article 3 of the 2011 Moroccan Constitution.  Therefore, it should not come as a shock when apostasy or anything that runs counter to Islam, aka Sharia Law, is punished. The Moroccan Supreme Ulema Council shares the concerns of Yusuf al-Karadawi, spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, who said in 2012 that if Muslims had “gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today.”

The Western notion of human rights and freedom of religion cannot be guaranteed in a country that (a) declares Islam as the official religion, (b) ensures the King “sees to the respect for Islam” as per Article 41 of the Moroccan Constitution, (c) sees more radical Islamist movements pushing for power, and (d) has accepted the Cairo Declaration, which places Sharia Law above all other systems of law. Laws that do not conform to Sharia cannot be upheld forever in a country like Morocco.

Apostasy is not officially considered a crime under Morocco’s criminal and civil codes.  However, attempting to convert a Muslim is illegal, according to Article 220 of the Moroccan Penal Code: “anyone who has impeded or prevented one or more persons from worship or from attending worship services of any religion may be punished by six-months to three-years imprisonment, and a fine of 200 to 500 dirhams.”

Not surprisingly, atheists and Christian proselytizers and converts in Morocco who speak out, are harassed, attacked, face death threats, expelled or imprisoned for periods longer than three years.  Moroccan atheist blogger Kacem El Ghazzali, a believer in freedom of expression, was forced to leave Morocco two years ago due to death threats made against him for his views against Islam.  Whatever happened to the second half of Article 3 in Morocco’s Constitution that “guarantees to all the free exercise of beliefs”?

Given the rise of Morocco’s ruling Islamist party and the increasing popularity of the government’s radical Islamist opponents, one can only ponder the role of Islam in government with great concern, especially against the backdrop of Morocco’s religious council calling for the death of Muslim apostates.

It is only a matter of time before Morocco becomes just another North African country that accedes to the demands of Islam.

 

Will Morocco Inflict the Death Penalty for Apostasy? Cynthia Yacowar-Sweeney, AmericanThinker

The Supreme Ulema Council of Morocco plans to issue a fatwa decreeing the death penalty for apostasy, according to Moroccan news website Lakome.  This council, which consists of religious Muslim scholars (ulema) appointed by the Ministry of Religious Endowments and Islamic Affairs, is considered the highest religious government institution in Morocco.

Lakome reports that this information was made public earlier this week by the Moroccan daily newspaper Akhbar Al Youm.  The Council recently voiced its opinion on freedom of religion, claiming that the death penalty should be applied to Moroccan Muslims who convert from Islam. According to another Moroccan website Medias24, this issue was discussed all day long this past Tuesday on Moroccan radio.

Both Lakome and Medias24 reported that this fatwa was requested by and sent to the Interministerial Delegation for Human Rights of Morocco, led by Mahjoub El Haiba.  However, Mr. El Haiba denies having received any fatwa or notices on apostasy.  The Supreme Ulema Council is led by secular King Mohammed Vl of Morocco, a country recognized as being one of the most moderate of Muslim countries.

At present, there is no death penalty for apostasy in Morocco….not yet.  Islam is the state religion, according to Article 3 of the 2011 Moroccan Constitution.  Therefore, it should not come as a shock when apostasy or anything that runs counter to Islam, aka Sharia Law, is punished.

Given the rise of Morocco’s ruling Islamist party (Justice and Development Party) that diminished the power of the King, and the alleged fatwas of Morocco’s  Supreme Council of Ulemas that call for the death of Muslim apostates, one can only ponder the role of Islam in government with great concern.  It is only a matter of time before Morocco becomes just another North African country that accedes to the demands of Islam.
