Mosque going up in your area?
If you imagine the most horrific thing human beings could possibly do to each other, even well beyond the most gory of horror films, non-supernatural ones at least, and then ask a friend to add details to make it worse and then post it as if it was news about what religious muslims do to other people in the name of islam, then chances are it has happened recently, or sometime in the past, or likely is about to.
This is a testament either to how awful Islam is as a motivating ideology as well as a wonderful testament to how poor our own imaginations are when it comes to doing awful things, that it takes a lot of effort and most of us never could have imagined the things we see frequently now.
Even so, a thing is either true or it is not and while it is increasingly difficult to know the difference, it remains an important distinction.
There are lots of sites that gleefully post anything that makes Islam look bad without verification and no link to sources. Some of those have turned out to be scenes from actual horror movies. Others may have been legit and others pure fabrication by someone on social media.
Does it do any good to the cause of waking up the West? Maybe or maybe not. But it certainly does none for the cause of reason, truth and integrity in what one does, and one would hope that is why we do this in order to preserve those values.
Videos were sent to me this morning that are too awful to see without sufficient warning. They are symptom inducing for people who already have PTSD this condition and could help bring it on for people who don’t but see enough of this I would imagine. Once again there is no source etc. given. Reluctantly, ill put a link to the Liveleak here and here.
But then you get mainstream news sources that are every bit as bad in terms of the effect it has one the victims, but not as horrifically presented post hoc. In other words, the people shown are dead either way. And so one can’t help but wonder if presenting horrifying material that may not be true as it has no source and the focus is so bad that it could easily be staged, actually negates the value of showing the truth to people as they get jaded to this kind of information once they find out that some of is staged.
Hard to say. History shows that propaganda works even, and perhaps especially if its pure fiction. Global warming, nuclear winter, ozone holes, ‘911 is an inside job’, the list is long.
Below is material about a recent atrocity committed by the Islamic State against people in cities they recently conquered. This material seems legit and very likely true as it is consistent with other verified Islamic acts of horror, and worse only in scale.
Business Insider: This Might Be The Most Horrific Single Massacre ISIS Has Committed
Islamic State militants drove 600 Shia, Christian, and Yazidi male prisoners into the middle of the desert, lined them up along the edge of a ravine, and executed them at point blank range, according to a report by Human Rights Watch released Thursday.
The inmates, taken from a local prison, were forced to count themselves as they lined up before members of the jihadist militant group opened fire on them with machine guns.
Video alleged to be from Iraq and seems quite legit
As our own governments try to deal with their own unique problems muslims have created in all our societies, primarily by lying to the public about the consequences of having a religious islamic population, along with a kind of secret detente creating immunity for muslims from our secular laws, and as religious leaders for the same reasons heap fiction upon untruth upon tactical manipulation to their own congregants in order to avoid the kind of conflict that indeed should happen if the public was properly informed and properly led, we become numb to information and indifferent to the truth of it and it becomes progressively easier for each and every one of us to cling to the narrative with which we are comfortable. So its always good to run a check on questionable materials even if it supports our point of view and its also good to run a self check on our own beliefs and make sure that the cause we fight for is based on reality.
I think we know it is in the Counter-Jihad. But still, lets make sure we can verify our claims or we lose all those we need to join the fight. And this is a critical stage.
As the day goes by more and more stories on this event will surface. I’m sure they will appear in the comments.

The dead woman from last January in an escalator at the Fabre metro station in Montreal had died strangled by her clothing, concludes the coroner in charge of the file.
In his report, Paul G. Dionne argues that the death of Naima Rharouity is “accidental” and that the woman’s scarf is probably the cause of the accident.
“The woman was strangled by the scarf and her scalp was lacerated by the combs of the escalator steps in motion, before the escalator was stopped,” one can read. However, the coroner does not specify in his report if it’s about an Islamic veil, as was implied by some media.
During a short interview with La Press, it was indicated that this detail was quite simply not in public interest. “It is not important, it is a scarf,” said Paul G. Dionne.
The coroner was also not able to determine with certainty if the woman fell before or after her clothing remained caught in the escalator.
“It is quite possible that the woman’s clothing was initially caught in the escalator, causing her fall and strangulation. (The woman measured 160 cm and her scarf 157 cm),” he writes.
The coroner recommends to the Société de transport de Montreal to “revise” and “adapt” its escalator maintenance program. He also asked the STM to ensure the implementation and application of this new program.
The following fascinating interview with a recruiter for the Islamic State was originally published by Der Spiegel and has been translated by Rembrandt Clancy.
You’ll notice that the interviewer is what is commonly referred to as a “moderate Muslim”. In his eagerness to find acceptable, humane parts of the Koran with which to confront his subject, he seems unaware that the Doctrine of Abrogation has rendered those verses irrelevant. The IS recruiter, in contrast, is fully versed in all the nuances of Islamic law.
“Islamic State” Recruiter Interviewed: “Democracy is something for Unbelievers”
What makes the “Islamic State” tick? How do their followers see the world? An IS-recruiter gives SPIEGEL ONLINE an account of how the extremists imagine the future. A disputatious discussion with an uncompromising radical.

The conditions of the Islamist [des Islamisten] are stringent: no photograph, no sound recordings; and it goes without saying that he will not divulge his real name, any more than reveal his country of origin. He says only that he is an Arab. His English is polished, with a British accent.
He calls himself Abu Sattar, a man of roughly 30 years with a thick, black, full beard reaching down to his chest, with a shaved upper lip, his head is shorn. He wears a black floor-length robe. In a black leather briefcase, he carries a Koran wrapped in a cloth.
In Turkey Abu Sattar recruits fighters for the terrorist militia, “Islamic State” (IS). He checks the basic cast of mind of interested parties who wish to travel from the many countries of the world to Turkey, whence they wish to go to war in Iraq or move to Syria. Many IS-followers, independently of one another, recommended him as a discussion leader, one they believe can best explain what the IS stands for. For many, he is something of an ideological paragon.
After some hesitation, Abu Sattar agrees to a meeting. He sets a date and promises to specify a location in good time; but then allows the arrangement to fall through, only to once more set up a meeting the next day, in the morning, in a public place. This time he actually surfaces: a man with brown eyes behind rimless glasses. He gives the impression of being self-confident and confrontational. He orders tea and allows a prayer chain with wooden beads to glide through his hands during the interview.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Assalamu alaikum.
Abu Sattar: Are you a Muslim?
SPIEGEL ONLINE: What part does that play here? For me, religion is a private matter.
Abu Sattar: Then why do you say “Assalamu alaikum”?
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Because it means “Peace be with you”, and I consider it a friendly greeting.
Abu Sattar: Therefore you are not a Muslim. But I knew that!
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Why is your way of thinking within the “Islamic State” constantly driven by a division of the world into believers and unbelievers? Why is it, that in the “Islamic State” everything is always black and white, “we against the rest of the world”?
Abu Sattar: Who started it then? Who conquered the world and attempted to subject all foreign cultures and religions? The history of colonialism is long and bloody. And it continues to today in the form of the arrogance of the West vis-à-vis everyone else: “we against the rest of the world”, that is the driving formula of the West. Finally, we Muslims are successfully offering resistance against it. Continue reading
