Islamists’ Ultimatum to Hamas: Release our Members or We’ll Shoot at Israel

Friday, October 7th, 2016

After the Israeli town of Sderot was hit last Wednesday with a rocket shot from the Gaza Strip, the responsible Salafi terror group Aknaf Bait al-Maqdis delivered an ultimatum to the Hamas government: release our activists from your jail within 48 hours, or we’ll target Sderot again, Ma’ariv reported Friday.

The ultimatum was issued by a senior in the Salafi terror group, Abu Bakr al-Maqdisi, who declared on his Facebook page: “We presented to Hamas a 48 hour ultimatum which they did not obey so we hit Sderot. Now we give them another 48 hours to release our activists from Hamas jail.”

Aknaf Bait al-Maqdis, an ISIS affiliate, was one of two groups who claimed responsibility for the Sderot rocket, with the declaration: “The shooting was part of our ongoing efforts against the Jewish enemies of Allah, as well as revenge for the arrest of our people by Hamas.”

Another, less well know group, Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, also claimed responsibility for the same rocket. There are several warring Islamist group in the Gaza Strip, which are in constant conflict with the Hamas government. Last week, five Salafi terrorists were arrested by police in Rafah and in Gaza City.

Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi told Ma’ariv it would be “unacceptable” for his town to become the battleground for various Gazan factions to fight each other. “Sderot is not Gaza’s gun fodder,” he said. “If there’s no quiet in Sderot, there must be no quiet in Gaza either. I count on the prime minister, the defense minister and the IDF to shortcut this pattern.”

The terms “Salafist jihadist” and “Jihadist-Salafism” were coined by scholar Gilles Kepel in 2002, to describe “a hybrid Islamist ideology” developed by international Islamist volunteers in the 1980s’ Afghan anti-Soviet jihad, organized largely by the CIA. Since then these hybrid Islamists have spread across the Middle East and North Africa, beheading and exploding their path to divine redemption. Three or four such groups planted themselves in the Gaza Strip and northern Sinai.

On August 14, 2009, Sheikh Abdel Latif Moussa, spiritual leader of Jund Ansar Allah, an armed Salafist jihadist group in the Gaza Strip, announced during his Friday sermon the establishment of an Islamic emirate in the Palestinian territories, and vowed an attack on the ruling Islamist group Hamas, for failing to enforce Sharia law. Hamas forces circled his mosque complex and in the fighting that ensued Sheikh Abdel Latif Moussa and 23 others were killed, and more than 130 were wounded.

Salafist jihadists have also been involved in protests against King Abdullah II of Jordan, and the kidnapping and killing of Italian peace activist Vittorio Arrigoni in Gaza.

Israel, which under its new defense minister, Avigdor Liberman, has been retaliating swiftly for every single violation of the 2014 ceasefire, refuses to distinguish between the different rockets shot across the Gaza border. It holds Hamas accountable for all of them, and, in fact, has taken advantage of the recent few rockets and mortar shells to hit Hamas training facilities in the northern Gaza Strip.

Sybaritic West Surrenders to Islamists

Monday, July 4th, 2016

{Originally posted to the Gatestone Institute website}

Omar Mateen did not choose the Pulse gay nightclub because it had few security guards or because it was an easy target. He could have targeted a supermarket or a school. No, Mateen chose Pulse because it is a nightclub, where he slaughtered 49 “infidels” and wounded 53 more.

Before murdering 2,977 people, the leader of the 9/11 terrorists, Mohammed Atta, along with four of the other hijackers, made several trips to Las Vegas during the summer before the attack, where they were entertained by dancers in nightclubs.

Fifteen years later, there was another country, another jihadist cell, another nightclub. Salah Abdeslam was dancing in a nightclub in Brussels with his brother, Brahim, and flirting with a blonde woman. A few months later, Brahim blew himself up in Paris at a concert in the Bataclan Theater. Nightclubs haunt the Islamist imagination with their mix of alcohol, sexual promiscuity, drugs and music. ISIS labelled Paris “the capital of prostitution and obscenity.”

The London nightclub Tiger Tiger, located between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, was the target of a terror plot in 2007. Last February, the French intelligence service foiled a plot to attack swingers’ clubs in Paris. Places such as Les Chandelles, which boasts a “fascinating journey into the heart of sensuality,” or the Overside, which offers 250 square meters “dedicated to pleasure.”

The most spectacular and bloody of these attacks at nightclubs took place in Bali, Indonesia, in 2002: 190 victims, mostly Western tourists, Australian surfers and girls in bikinis.

In 2008, Islamists attacked the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, Pakistan, which they used to call “the den of Western decadence.” Like the nightclubs, the hotels are ideological targets, places where men and women freely mix and guests can consume alcohol and enjoy music.

In July 2005, at least 88 people were killed by terrorists storming Sharm el Sheikh, the tiny Egyptian seaside village transformed by Hosni Mubarak into a global attraction for foreign tourism. In 2015, ISIS butchered British tourists on a beach in Sousse, Tunisia.

“We desire death more than you desire life,” these Islamist terrorists have been telling us for the last twenty years. It seems they want to achieve a catharsis by spilling blood in our comfortable promiscuity, in the dark of a nightclub.

Senior Hamas official Fathi Hamad, addressing Israel, has said the same thing. Major Nidal Malik Hasan wrote, “We love death more than you love life” before murdering 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas. “We are going to win, because they love life and we love death,” said Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, along with Osama bin Laden and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The West, however, should be proud of what the Islamists call “decadence.” For the West, “decadence” is synonymous with freedom. The problem is that we postmodern Westerners have sacrificed the very values that ensure our survival and exchanged them for “decadence” — pleasure. That is why Pim Fortuyn, the openly gay sociology professor and politician murdered in 2002, scorned Islam as a “backward culture” (an animal rights activist killed Fortuyn “to protect Muslims“). Fortuyn fought on behalf of what Islamists would consider “decadence,” and he regarded permissiveness as the great glory of Western civilization.

The problem is that the West does not desire life. It seems tired of it. You can see that from the post-Orlando reactions which cannot even mention the word “Islam.” The West is ready to surrender its love of life to those who want to take it away from them. To quote the French atheist philosopher, Michel Onfray:

“Islam manifests what Nietzsche called ‘great health’: there are young soldiers ready to die for it. What are the values of our civilization? Supermarket and e-commerce, trivial consumerism and egotistical narcissism, vulgar hedonism or scooters for adults?”

Pleasure has become sad in the West.

In a fever of moralistic prudery, Italy recently veiled naked art at the Capitoline Museums in Rome during the visit of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. But we obligate other Muslims who arrive in Europe to see far more explicit naked images.

From Norway to Denmark, the Scandinavian nations have adopted compulsory sex education for migrants. In the Netherlands, the minister of education decided to impose the teaching of LGBT courses in migrant centers. Germany has published guidelines, leaflets and cartoons to communicate to immigrants the new sexual norms to follow. Is that all we have to offer to these people?

“The morally illiterate leaflets European local authorities are distributing to migrants reflect the problems that official EU culture has in the realm of values,” wrote sociologist Frank Furedi. Europe already tried to integrate Muslims by offering them wantonness and libertinism. And it failed. Asked what drove them to convert to Islam, many Europeans talked of feeling their lives had been lost and lacking in purpose, citing “lack of morality and sexual permissiveness“.

The “clash of civilizations” has turned into a war between those who cry, “We will not give up our lifestyle” and those who sing, “We desire death more than you desire life.” It is a war between a decadent apathy with moral inertia and Islamist theological turmoil. The Caliphate is much stronger than our disarmed and self-righteous decadence.

ISIS’s black banner, crying “No God but Allah” — the banner of the people who kill cartoonists in Paris and gays in Orlando — is marching over the ruins of our addiction to pleasure.

Israel Police, Jordanian Islamic Waqf Play ‘Good Cop, Bad Cop’ With Danish Reporter at Temple Mount

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

Danish reporter ‘Jerusalem Jane’ Kiel announced in a video report on Facebook Thursday morning (April 28) that she was cleared to return to the Temple Mount by police at the precinct near the Jaffat Gate entrance to the Old City.

The move was odd, given that it was Israel Police who removed her from the Temple Mount earlier in the morning at the directive of the Jordanian Islamic Waqf, Kiel said, just shortly before.

“After being forced off the Temple Mount again I just talked to the police,” she wrote in her post. “They checked my passport and, according to them I AM ALLOWED ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.. “So the Waqf say no, but the Israeli police says yes.

And the fact is, it was the [Israel] police that took me off after the Waqft (sic) told them to… See you up there sometime soon. We will see who is in charge..”

JewishPress.com was unable to reach the Israel Police spokesperson on the incident despite repeated attempts to do so.

Could it be that Israel Police and Jordanian Islamic Waqf security personnel are playing the game of “good cop, bad cop” with international journalists on the Temple Mount these days?

German Police Chief: Muslim Violence Shows Christian Refugees Must Be Housed Separately

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

(JNi.media) Jörg Radek, deputy head of Germany’s police union, said Christian and Muslim migrants should be lodged separately, following the increasing numbers of attacks on Christians by Muslims in refugee centers. And according to The Independent, a policy of segregation has already been implemented in the German state of Thuringia after Christian migrants in asylum centers were attacked by Sunnis attempting to impose Sharia law.

Rainer Wendt, another German police union official, said violence between groups of illegal migrants in German hostels is common. “We‘ve been seeing this violence for weeks and even months,” Wendt reported. “Groups join forces based on ethnicity, religion or clan structures and attack each other with knives and even weapons they have made themselves.” He explained that “Sunnis fight Shiites, there are Salafists of varying kinds… Women are being forced to wear veils. Men are forced to pray. Islamists want to impose their values.”

International Society for Human Rights official Max Klingberg complained that many migrants arriving in Germany are radical Islamists. “Among the new arrivals is not a small amount of religious intensity, it is at least at the level of the Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.

“I think housing separated according to religion makes perfect sense,” Radek told Die Welt. German police reported that 14 people were injured in two separate clashes that erupted between refugees last Sunday at a temporary migrant shelter in Kassel-Calden in northern Germany. On Thursday evening the week before, a fight broke out among some 200 Syrian and Afghan refugees wielding table legs and slats at a shelter in Leipzig. “They attacked each other with clubs and threw things at each other,” a police spokesman reported, according to the Independent.

“The police have reached their absolute breaking point,” Radek stated, explaining: “Our officials are increasingly being called to confrontations in refugee homes. When there are 4,000 people in a home which only actually has places for 750, this confinement then leads to aggression where even a tiny thing like the corridor to the toilet can lead to violence.”

According to bt2.net, the European establishment media is largely ignoring ethnic violence as illegal immigrants stream into the West. The most recent incident took place this week in a Danish refugee center near Copenhagen where a “a stateless Palestinian” in a refugee center stabbed a police officer.

Germany is expected to get about one million asylum applications this year. The German government has set aside $6.75 billion to fund accommodation, and designated an extra 3,000 police to cope with this influx. But with training for police taking around three years, according to The Independent, Germany’s 16 federal states rely largely on private security firms to maintain the peace.

Major Airbase Falls to Rebels, Syrian Troops Driven from Idlib Province

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Syrian government troops have lost control over a major military airbase in the northwestern province of Idlib.

The troops pulled out of the Abu al-Duhur base after a two-year siege by Islamist-led rebels, according to a news flash broadcast Wednesday on Syrian state television.

The rebels have now secured control over nearly all of Idlib province – but it is still not entirely clear which faction controls the province.

It is believed the fighters who seized the base are members of the Al Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra (Al Nusra Front) group.

A number of cities in the province are already under the control of the opposition forces, including Idlib and Jisr al-Shughour, according to the BBC.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed the airbase has fallen and the Syrian military has been entirely driven from Idlib province, except for the primarily Shi’ite villages of Foua and Kfariya.

Hezbollah guerrillas and the elite Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, who both are also Shi’ite, may be defending that territory.

Visitors Allowed at Temple Mount Despite Arab Violence

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

Israel Police allowed visitors to continue their tours of the Temple Mount Sunday morning despite efforts by Arab extremists to prevent their entry with renewed violence.

Palestinian Authority teens wearing masks began hurling rocks at the security personnel on the Mount Sunday morning.

The violence appeared to have been a repeat of a familiar tactic aimed at manipulating police into again cancelling visits by Jews and other non-Muslims to the site.

As they did last week, however, Israel Police again instead moved the perpetrators into the Al Aqsa Mosque, where the security forces created a physical barrier to protect visitors from the attackers.

Tours of the site – considered the holiest in the world in Judaism and the third holiest in Islam – continued through the morning hours as usual.

The strategy is a new one: in the past, it was the visitors to the Temple Mount whose rights were abrogated and the rioters whose violence was given priority.

Last week, however, Israel Police changed direction and instead began protecting visitors to the site by blocking the violence perpetrated by Arab rioters. The attackers were moved by security personnel when they began hurling projectiles, and remained contained within the mosque so that non-Muslim tourists could visit the site safely.
