“The attacker was shouting ‘White power’, witnesses said, and detectives have confirmed the assault appeared to be racially-motivated.” So this was presented to the British public as a an attack by one of those right-wing racists that British authorities are much more concerned about than they are about Islamic jihadists, and this attack appeared to substantiate their concern.
There’s just one catch: Zack Davies is a Muslim who calls himself Zak Ali, and who warned on his Facebook page on the morning of his attack in Tesco: “The wrath of Allah is about to come down upon the kaffir, I will have my revenge.” He also posted four Qur’an verses (identifying the suras as “books”) that call for violence against unbelievers:
(This is no small thing. It also makes one question the Scottish truck driver and another recent event in Ottawa)
On Wednesday night, Channel 2 showed satellite imagery taken by Israel’s Eros-B satellite that was launched last April. The imagery showed new missile-related sites that Iran recently constructed just outside Tehran. One facility is a missile launch site, capable of sending a rocket into space or of firing an ICBM.
On the launch pad was a new 27-meter long missile, never seen before.
The missile and the launch pad indicate that Iran’s ballistic missile program, which is an integral part of its nuclear weapons program, is moving forward at full throttle. The expanded range of Iran’s ballistic missile program as indicated by the satellite imagery makes clear that its nuclear weapons program is not merely a threat to Israel, or to Israel and Europe. It is a direct threat to the United States as well.
(One city has a billboard praising the murderers of the Charlie Hebdo staff and more)
A municipally owned billboard in Tatvan, in eastern Anatolia, declared support for the murdering Kouachi brothers in the days after the Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris: This was not actually reported in an article but is mentioned in a column “Paris shootings” by Yasar Yakis. A search of the archives doesn’t turn up any other results in this newspaper; however, according to Pinar Tremblay in Turkey Pulse, the text on the billboard read “May peace be upon the Kouachi brothers who sought the revenge of the Prophet. When you [Western world] kill it is called democracy, when we seek revenge [it is called] terrorism.” The mayor apparently denied any responsibility and had the billboard quickly removed. But what does this say about the mindset of those who would prepare the text and install the billboard – not to mention those who would allow it?
(This article misses one very important point. According to the declaration of human rights in Islam, AKA the Cairo declaration, and presented to the UN as a legally binding document by the OIC, Islam abrogates all older, meaning all, religions and therefore the demand that all religions be protected from blasphemy or insult is a kind of classic and pernicious islamic trick of words.
Because at no time and no where will the daily prayers which call Christianity, Judaism and all other beliefs lies worthy of death will any new blasphemy law be applied. It will be applied only to protect Islam, while islam continues to disenfranchise everyone else as we see world wide.)
Earlier this week, the Qatar-based international Union of Muslim Scholars– headed by Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual guide of Egypt’s banned Muslim Brotherhood– called upon the United Nations to make “contempt of religions” illegal.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the Union said that there should be “protection for ‘prophets’” and urged the UN to issue a “law criminalizing contempt of religions and the prophets and all the holy sites.”
The Muslim scholars also urged the West to “protect Muslim communities following the attack on French magazine Charlie Hebdo.”
This is very strange. Jews, Christians, Hindus, and atheists have not been attacking Muslims.
On the contrary, Muslims have been rioting, shooting, stabbing, beheading, and blowing up other Muslims and infidels, especially Jews and Christians, in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Nevertheless, these Muslim scholars seem to believe that Muslims are being violently persecuted.
