Italian-ISIS Woman Says Beheadings ‘Obey Sharia Law’

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

A 28-year-old Italian woman who left for Syria with her husband told an interview by Skype that the Islamic State (ISIS) is a “perfect country” and that beheadings simply are fine because they “obey Sharia law.”

The European “The Local” spoke with Maria Giulia Sergio, who converted to Islam, changed her name to Fatima Az Zahara and married Aldo Kobuzi, from Albania, last September.

Shortly afterwards, the young couple went to Syria and joined ISIS, where she underwent weapons training.

She said she tried to convince her family to join ISIS because “they could have a good life here.”

They sold their possessions and asked for passports but last week, Italian security forces arrested her family, including her parents and sister, all of whom also converted to Islam.

Sergio, or Az Zahara, celebrated last January’s murders at the offices of the Charles Hebdo magazine by sending enthusiastic messages to her friends.

And what about the rapes and sexual slavery of ISIS?

She insists that the terrorist army respects human rights and that the people who really do not respect human rights “are those who do not follow Allah’s rules.”

Rioting Arabs Again Keep Visitors Off Temple Mount

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

Once again, rioting Arabs on Sunday (July 5) succeeded in keeping visitors off the Temple Mount. Thousands of Palestinian Authority Arabs have been allowed into the site for prayers during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, now entering its fourth and final week.

But the obviously planned violence by Arabs whipped up during a sermon at the mosque on the site, who hurled rocks at police forces near the Mughrabi (Rambam) Bridge, made it unsafe for security to allow anyone to ascend to the Mount, Judaism’s holiest site.

This means that the thousands of Jews and other local and foreign visitors, many of whom arrive from overseas, cannot ascend the Mount.

Police officials said they would delay the opening of the site to visitors until security personnel had brought rioters under control. It is also possible that such a delay will mean the opening may be delayed beyond the hours in which the site can be accessed at all, at least for this day, due to the prayer schedule taking place at the mosque.

Launching violent riots is one of the preferred methods for Arab agitators to keep Jews and other non-Muslims from accessing the Temple Mount, site of the Al Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock; it is also considered the third holiest site in Islam.

Today is a fast day for Jews around the world, as it signals the start of the three-week period in history that led to the final destruction of the Holy Temples and the burning and conquest of Jerusalem – first by the Babylonians, and then by the Romans. This period culminates in the darkest fast day on the Jewish calendar: Tisha B’Av, the Ninth of Av.

ISIS Vows to Conquer Gaza, Israel & Palestinian Authority

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

It had to happen sometime.

ISIS (Da’esh in Arabic) – not satisfied with the way Hamas terrorists have governed the Gaza region – has decided to seize control of the enclave itself.

And the terrorist organization says it does not plan to stop there, either — the group apparently issued a video statement Tuesday warning of its intent to conquer the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority as well, according to the Reuters news agency.

The video has been removed from the Internet, however.

“We will uproot the state of the Jews and you and Fatah, and all of the secularists are nothing and you will be overrun by our creeping multitudes,” a masked member of the terror group proclaimed in a message addressed to the “tyrants of Hamas,” according to Reuters.

“The rule of Shari’a (Islamic Law) will be implemented in Gaza in spite of you,” he went on. “We swear that what is happening in the Levant today, and in particular the Yarmouk camp (the Palestinian settlement in Damascus), will happen in Gaza.”

All of the above was quoted from the video released by ISIS in Syria this week. But it won’t be seen by the general public, since the video effectively no longer exists.

What is clear, however, is the growing power struggle taking place between Sunni Muslim Hamas — spawned by the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood based in Egypt — and the more extreme Salafi Muslims in Gaza. Since ISIS entered the enclave, that struggle has become increasingly complex. The two groups tend to cooperate on terror attacks against Israel, but disagree vehemently on how tightly to draw the reins of religious stringency around the necks of their people.

On Tuesday, Israeli Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz accused Hamas of working together with members of an ISIS terror group, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, based in the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula. The group, once affiliated with Al Qaeda, last year switched its allegiance to ISIS instead.

Hamas may have no choice if it wants to survive: In February 2014, the Mujahedeen Shura council in the Environs of Jerusalem issued a statement asserting their committment to “helping ISIS and bolstering its ranks.” Soon after, a video was uploaded to the Internet on social networking sites, showing Al Qaeda-linked Salafi jihadists meeting in Gaza to offer support and pledge allegiance to ISIS.

According to the Al-Monitor who interviewed someone who appeared in the footage, the video was shot in Gaza by “young men primarily driven by emotions to come to the aid of our brothers in Syria.”

“There is cooperation between [Hamas and ISIS] on weapons smuggling and terror attacks,” Katz told participants at a conference organized by the Israel Defense journal in Tel Aviv. “The Egyptians and Saudis both know this. At the same time – within Gaza – Da’esh has been defying Hamas. But the two fight a common cause against the Jews, whether they be in Israel or overseas.”

Hamas maintained a foreign outpost in Damascus until several years ago, when it was ousted from its base by President Bashar al-Assad. Currently Hamas politburo chief Khaled Meshaal is comfortably ensconsed in new quarters in Turkey, courtesy of Muslim Brotherhood supporter President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, co-founder and leader of the country’s pro-Islamist AK Party.

ISIS Beheads Two Women for Sorcery and Witchcraft

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) has beheaded two women, along with their husbands, for allegedly practicing witchcraft and sorcery, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights

The executions took place Sunday and Monday in two different villages. ISIS previously has executed dozens of women, but usually for adultery and by stoning or by a firing squad.

It also has beheaded foreign women, but this is the first time the Satanic Islamic group has decapitated women for not following Sharia law.

For the record, according to the Observatory, ISIS had has been busy the past 12 months executing 86 women and 74 children among its 1,800 civilian victims,

The executioners earlier this month crucified two children for not fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Its thirst for displaying the most terrifying pictures possible would seem to have left no room for more monstrosities, but that has been said in the past and has been disproven every time.

An Observatory official explained that the beheadings of the alleged sorcerers may have been an attempt to scare other women into showing up at mosques for prayers five times a day.

The world keeps trying to fight the ISIS from the air, but there has been no unified and determined alliance to make eliminating the insane group the most urgent and important priority.

The only unified mission that United Nations has been able to come up with is the U.N. Human Rights Council condemnation of Israel for the sin of Jews living in half of Jerusalem, the Golan Heights Judea and Samaria.

If there were only some way to get the Jews out of those areas, maybe the ISIS would disappear, right?

IDF Catches Rifle-Armed Hamas Woman on Her Way to Shoot Jews

Sunday, June 28th, 2015

Israel security forces Sunday caught a Palestinian Authority women armed with a rifle as she tried to cross the security fence between Kalkilya and Kfar Saba, north of Tel Aviv.

She confessed that Hamas had sent her to carry out a terrorist attack. The rifle that she carried appears to be a throwback to the M-1 in World War I, raising questions whether it really was Hamas that sent her on her mission, unless the terrorist organization is saving its automatic weapons for male terrorists.

Details are under wraps due to an investigation by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet). Attempted terrorist attacks with guns and knives have become almost daily since the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan 10 days ago.

Reservists on Friday shot and killed a Palestinian Authority terrorist who started shooting at them at a checkpoint on the main highway in Jordan Valley.

Several stabbing attacks in Jerusalem have been reported, the most serious one last week when an Arab from Hebron nearly killed a Border Police officer, who managed to shoot and critically wound his attacker.

No Ramadan Fasting Allowed for Muslims in Xinjiang, China

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Residents of the majority- Muslim province of Xinjiang in China are not being allowed to celebrate their religious holiday this year.

The Chinese government posted statements banning the traditional month-long daily fasts on the websites of schools, government agencies and local party organizations.

“No teacher may participate in religious activities, instill religious thoughts in students, or coerce students into religious activities,” read a statement on the website of the No. 3 Grade School in Ruoqiang County in Xinjiang, according to the Virtual Jerusalem website.

“Students shall not participate in religious activities; they shall not study scripts or read poems at script and choir classes; they shall not wear any religious emblems; and no parent or others can force students to have religious beliefs or partake in religious activities,” another post on the website read.

Restaurants have been ordered to stay open in the province, including those owned and operated by Muslims, according to the Saudi Arabian Arab News website. Shops have been threatened with closure if they do not continue selling cigarettes and alcohol throughout the month of Ramadan.

According to the post, the ban is intended to “protect students’ well-being” and “prevent the use of schools and government offices from promoting religion.” But the ban may be adding fuel to a fire that is already beginning to blaze in the province against the Han ethnic majority in China, the largest such group in the country.

Dilxat Raxit, the Sweden-based leader of the Uighur people, however, warned in a statement last Friday, “The faith of the Uighurs has been highly politicized and the increase in controls could cause sharp resistance.” The second-largest ethnic group in China is comprised of the Uighurs, who largely identify with Islam. All told, there are some 56 recognized ethnic groups in the country.

“China’s goal in prohibiting religious fasting is to forcibly move Uighurs away from their Muslim culture during Ramadan,” said Raxit, a spokesperson for the exiled World Uighur Congress. “Policies that prohibit religious fasting are a provocation and will only lead to instability and conflict.”

The ruling party, which officially is atheist, is “encouraging” its members to avoid daytime fasting – a direct slap at the Islamic practice during Ramadan.

“They are extracting guarantees from parents, promising that their children won’t fast on Ramadan,” Raxit said in an interview with Radio Free Asia.

In December 2014, China prohibited the wearing of burkas – Islamic full-body, veiled robes – in public in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang province, referred to by some as East Turkestan. Some eight million Turkish-speaking Uighur Muslims populate the northwestern Xinjiang region, which has been autonomous since 1955, but remains subject to security restrictions by Chinese authorities.

Last month violence in a Xinjiang open air vegetable market left 43 people dead. A year ago 13 radical Islamic terrorists were killed in a clash with police. Attacks at train stations in Urumqi and in southwestern China were also blamed on Muslim extremists.

The most populous nation in the world, China is also the third largest country in size geographically. Its role as a leader in world politics as one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council is also bringing China to global prominence as well.

Up to this point, China has maintained a relatively low profile on the world stage with regard to the issue of terrorism driven by radical Islam. But its obvious return to the traditional Communist government intolerance for any religious practice, however – particularly timed to coincide with Ramadan — indicates a likely change in that attitude.

What remains to be seen is how local Muslims will respond to the whip, and whether – and how – fellow Muslims around the world will protest on their behalf.
