Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law vs. U.S. Constitution and Culture

Leftist Race Baiting is America’s of Executing Blasphemy Law

Shamim Masih is providing a follow-up (scroll below my thoughts) on the rumors and status of the Christian Zafar Bhatti who has been convicted for committing blasphemy in Pakistan.

 

As Shamim Masih reported yesterday in his report “CLAAS has nothing to do with Zafar Bhatti case, says Basharat Khokhar,” Pakistani Christian Zafar Bhatti has not been receiving the material and legal support publicized by the Pakistan Christian Civil Rights organization CLAAS. Regardless of the initial reported rumors, Bhatti is alive, unwounded but not well. This is the horrendous blasphemy Pakistan law that was supposedly committed and indeed convicted for (Sources on legal issues):

 

Zafar Bhatti is accused of blasphemy under Pakistan’s 295C blasphemy law. He was charged in July 2012, based on rumors that he insulted Muhammad’s mother in text messages. Zafar worked selling medicines, and he often went door-to-door with his presentation. He also used those opportunities to share Christ in the various homes, reading the Bible and praying with families. He also established a small NGO called “Jesus World Mission” [NGO link on Facebook] whose purpose was to assist the poor.

 

On July 11, 2012, he was accused by a fellow NGO worker of sending blasphemous text messages from a mobile phone that she had given him. Zafar and his wife left the village to avoid a massive riot. Police arrested him on July 26, charging him under 295c of the legal code, which are informally called the “blasphemy laws.”

 

In jail, Zafar has been beaten several times. Someone also tried to poison his food. Several of the Muslim prisoners pressure him, saying if he accepts Islam he will be forgiven. Zafar’s sister and wife are quite concerned for his well-being in prison as his case moves through the legal system. “Pray that God will help my brother stay strong in his faith,” said his sister. (Prisoner Alert: Zafar Bhatti; reposted from Persecution Blog [that link now dead]; Before It’s News; 9/4/13 12:32)

 

Once again, Pakistan’s blasphemy law has been used to bring unsubstantiated charges against members of religious minorities. Rev Zafar Bhatti, president of the Jesus World Mission, is in prison after he was accused of violating the ‘black law.’ Judges now must decide whether or not to heed the appeal made on his behalf and release him on bail. A Muslim leader said the Christian clergyman sent him text messages that insulted Islam and the Prophet Muhammad. Catholic leaders and human rights activists have responded immediately, pleading for his innocence, noting that police has been subjected to pressures and that the case is vitiated by errors in law.

 

Rev Bhatti hails from Karachi, but moved to Lahore in 2010, in Nawaz Sharif Colony, where he has worked on behalf of local Christians and religions minorities for the past two years. On 10 July, he decided to move with his family to the capital Islamabad. The next day, Ahmed Khan, deputy Secretary of the local Jamat Ehl-e-Sunnat, unexpectedly filed a complaint against the Christian clergyman at the New Town police station, in Rawalpindi.

 

According to the police report, Khan received some text messages on his mobile phone with insulting language towards Muhammad’s mother from an unregistered but visible number, which he kept in the phone’s memory. At the police station, he said that if the agents did not open an investigation for blasphemy under article 295-C of the Penal Code, his organisation would take matters in its own hands.

 

 

Police arrested Rev Bhatti on 16 July and his sister-in-law Nasreen Bibi. In custody, the pastor was physically abused and tortured to extract a confession but he stood his ground, rejecting the accusation and insisting on his innocence.

 

 

“Zhaffar Bhatti is innocent,” said Khalid Jill, of APMA. “We are going to fight for his release.” In his view, police began a case against him under “pressure,” but we “are going to appeal because he was charged under the wrong article of the law.”

 

Mgr Rufin Anthony, bishop of Islamabad-Rawalpindi, is of the same opinion. “How can police be sure” about the offender’s identity? “It is clear that it is a case of personal animosity,” probably in connection with some land. (Christian leader falsely charged of blasphemy in Islamabad; By Jibran Khan; AsiaNews.it; 8/13/12)

 

Zafar is accused of sending blasphemous cell phone text messages to an Islamic cleric. Problem is, Zafar is illiterate and would have no way of knowing how to write a text message.

 

The Pakistan contact says Zafar survived an assassination attempt in prison March 31. Apparently poison was placed in his food, causing him to bleed from his nose and mouth.

 

Here’s a portion of the email sent to me about Pakistani Christian prisoner Zafar Bhatti:

 

“Muslim prisoners told him he would be forgiven (for the alleged blasphemy incident) if he accepted Islam. But he refused to accept Islam. Muslim prisoners are trying to kill him… and are saying they will tell jail authorities that he is using bad language about Prophet Mohammed. Zafar’s sister says ‘everyday Muslim prisoners come around Zafar and call him kafar (infidel) and use bad language against him and Christianity.’ They are giving him mental torture. Zafar’s life is in danger in jail.” (Pakistani Prisoner in Urgent Need of Prayer; By Gary Lane; Blogs CBN.comThe Global Lane; 7/17/13 11:43 AM)

 

Zaffar Bhatti was poisoned in Jail and suffered unsasnitory (sic) living conditions which affected his legs and body, yet he survived. And as he hailed the Name of Jesus loud and clear echoing in the prison cell walls, the prison inmates and the guards became astonished and asked what was that? They never heard how Christians hail the name of Jesus aloud. But since then, they have kept their silence and refrained from persecuting Zaffar Bhatti. https://www.facebook.com/notes/jesus-world-mission/zaffar-bhatti-wins-his-safety-in-jail-through-jesus-name/653922414625661 (Updates on Zaffar Bhatti: Chairman Jesus World Mission; By Ahsan Nabi Khan; Ahsan Nabi’s Blog; 9/20/13)

 

I want you to notice the large bulk of this information is NOT from any Mainstream Media sources. The irony is if you Google ‘Zafar Bhatti’ most Mainstream Media sources still have the rumors that he was killed in Adayla Prison awaiting execution for the absurd Blasphemy conviction.

 

The Christians on death row for Blasphemy convictions are growing all the time. To my knowledge no one has been executed as yet. On the other hand death row Christians are victims often victims of attempted murder or murder by guards and/or inmates. Zafar Bhatti is an example of the many Pakistani Christians that are relatively unknown in America because our media has opted not to report on the horrendous treatment of Christians in Pakistan unless it is a catastrophic event in which many Christians die.

 

Shamim Masih is openly soliciting donations for care of Zafar’s legal bills and for his family that also live constantly under the threat of Muslim mob violence or mob execution. If you read this and KNOW someone or some Organization that can offer some very needed support Zafar you can send money directly to Shamim Masih who was contacted by Zafar’s family to get the word out on the Christian Pastor’s precarious life and death situation. For Americans willing to step up, the best way is through Western Union. Here is the Shamim Masih contact information to send money via Western Union for Shamim to present to the Zafar Bhatti family:

 

For Americans especially, I have discovered the best way to donate to Shamim Masih is via Western Union sending this LINK to a Western Union agent in Islamabad. Include Shamim’s phone – +92-300-642-4560

 

By clicking “LINK” above Western Union will take you through the process of donating in U.S. Dollars in which Western Union converts to Rupees. Shamim’s phone is needed because that is how Western Union contacts Shamim to make him aware funds are available.

 

If you desire a tax deduction for your giving you need to find a reputable organization that has the proper U.S. Non-Profit tax status to that will contribute to the needs of Zafar Bhatti and his family.

 

OR try contacting Tahir Naveed Chaudhary the Chairman of the Pakistan Minorities Alliance (PMA) specifying on how to help Zafar Bhatti: HERE.

 

There is more donation methods toward Shamim Masih at the end of his update report posted after my thoughts entitled, “Zafar Bhatti blasphemy accused is perfectly fine, says his wife Nawab Bibi”.

 

Can you imagine the silliness of being convicted to a death sentence for voicing your opinion about Mohammed in a negative way? If such laws existed in the USA I would have been lynched long ago. As a Christian living in the land of Liberty I often condemn the theology of Islam directly from that so-called religion of peace’s own revered books such as the Quran, Hadith and Sira. The Quran is considered immutable even by devoted Muslims that call themselves Moderate. It is misleading that the Quran is not presented in a chronological order because there are basically two sides of a coin in the book. One side concentrating mostly form Mohammed’s home town of Mecca prior to fleeing are all about peace and toleration through Allah. The flip side of the coin are Mohammed’s words and actions in Medina which by Western standards are quite lecherous, greedy, brutal and intolerant. According to Islamic theology, especially as seen through the Sunni sect and Abrogation, the Medina portion of the Quran outweighs the Mecca portion when consulted on a theo-political jurisprudence matter. I do not have an irrational fear of Islam as the word ‘Islamophobia’ might indicate, rather I have a very rational dislike for the Islam that is very anti-Christian (ergo antichrist religion) and anti-Jewish (ergo antisemitic) in their holy writings. Thank God I have the right to expose the essence of Islam’s antichrist nature in America. Pakistan I probably wouldn’t make it to the court house before Christ-hating Islamic Supremacists murdered me for my beliefs as blasphemous to Mohammed, Allah and Islam in general.

 

Every charge of Blasphemy in Pakistan is an attack on Civil Rights issues taken for granted in the United States of America. We as Americans have the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. (Bold text mine)

 

In America the Constitution is nearly holy writ for the American way of life. Hence Religious Freedom and Free Speech is protected even if individuals, people of devout faith, atheists or various political ideologies are offended. As Americans when a person or group of a divergent faith, no faith or political persuasion offends another American; the offended vents in written or peaceful protest form. Violent responses has become as heinous crimes in the minds of all Americans of faith, no faith, race, gender and politics. Now it is true peaceful protests have evolved into violence but this has occurred less and less in the USA since the 1960s. These days when violence does erupt it is almost never to do with religion or politics, rather when the perception of a minority race that their race has experienced a horrendous rupture in Civil Rights, the minority breaks out into violence. These days the majority population as a whole rarely if ever instigates violent protest over an incident. This was not the case during the 1960s and the very early 1970s in which the Civil Rights Movement was forcing the White majority to abandon long-time prejudices primarily against African-Americans (Black Community).

 

The Southern U.S. had been entrenched in the hostility toward Black Americans having the same Equal Rights as White Americans because of the former Black Slave status ended with the North (Union) victory over the South (Confederacy) States effectively ending the institution of slavery but not the White attitude toward former slaves. The 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments to the Constitution became the foundation to provide Equal Rights to American minorities even though the end of the slavery of Black Americans was the purpose. Those Amendments became ratified in 1865, 1868 and 1870 respectively. BUT full implementation was not forced upon the segregationist South and various non-South urban areas until the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. That is roughly 100 year variance between slavery emancipation and the enforcement of Civil Rights.

 

This is my point: other than some race baiting by certain politicians (coughPresident Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and more), Civil Rights violence has nearly ceased to exist. Regardless of the fact that discrimination does still exist it is not even close to the level that Black Americans experienced prior to the forced policies of the Civil Rights policies of the U.S. government in the 1960s and early 1970s.

 

As I was researching the limited sources I could access pertaining to Zafar Bhatti and his family I discovered that Zafar’s sister – Nasreen Bibi – experienced a tragedy at the hands of Muslims in 2010. Then 12 year old Shazia Bashir worked for a Muslim family as a domestic servant. When her parents were finally granted access to their daughter they found her tortured with cuts to her body of which Shazia eventually succumbed to in the hospital. At any rate forgive me for interjecting the U.S. Constitution be sure to read about Zafar Bhatti’s very urgent needs as reported by Shamim Masih.

Zafar Bhatti blasphemy accused is perfectly fine, says his wife Nawab Bibi

ISLAMABAD: Zafar Bhatti accused of blasphemy case confined in the Central Jail Adiala (or Adayla) Rawalpindi, is perfectly fine and fit, says his wife Nawab Bibi after visiting him in the jail on September 29, 2014. She is thankful to Tahir Naveed Chaudhary, Chairman Pakistan Minorities Alliance – PMA and Basharat Khokhar, Rights Activist for arranging their visit to Adayla Jail.

 

According to the details; there were rumors that Zafar Bhatti a victim of the 295-C [Blasphemy Law] imprisoned in Adayla Jail, was attacked after the attack of Muhammad [perhaps also Ali] Asghar, another blasphemy victim in the same premises. A police constable named Yousaf attacked Muhammad Asghar on September 25, 2014; he received a gunshot and was taken to the hospital and is still under treatment. Since then there were unverified reports [that Zafar was killed] and Zafar’s family was worried about him.

 

Early morning on 29th September, Tahir Naveed Chaudhary chairman PMA and Basharat Khokhar took Nawab Bibi and Nasreen Bibi and went to see Blasphemy victim Pastor Zafar Bhatti. They met Zafar in the jail and found him in good health. Tahir Naveed Chaudhary, who has been attorney to Rimsha (a minor girl, victim of blasphemy), said it was [his] first visit after the speculations and after the fact finding. We decided to take care of the family and the case as well. PMA has decided to provide assistance to the family and legal aid for the accused. Basharat Khokhar, a member [of] civil society, said that I voluntarily [provided] assist[ance] to the persecuted because I have faced the same charges. Human Rights champions work [assistance] as a business but I am passionate to save the beleaguered community.

 

Nawab Bibi, wife of the Zafar Bhatti, supported Basharat Khokhar and said that he [has] been helping us since the case is registered. Joseph Francis [of CLAAS] came to us and had a photo session, he also provided us assistance of Rs. 5000 twice, and she [had] answered when asked about the CLAAS assistance provision. Nasreen Bibi, sister of Zafar Bhatti, said he [i.e. Joseph Francis] is [the] least [to] bother solving the case and seems interested to prolong the case for his vested interest. That is the reason he uses delay tactics in the case. Both females showed their confidence on these gentlemen [i.e. Tahir Naveed Chaudhary and Basharat Khokhar].

 

The group came to my house after their meeting with Zafar Bhatti in the jail.

 

Persecution against religious minorities is very common in Pakistan. But it is observed that some Human Rights champions, without realizing the pain of the victims, play with the life of the poor Christian families.

The Heart of Darkness


Mo says convert to Islam or die

 

Justin Smith makes a very good case showing Obama and other deceived politically correct American leaders (Left, Center and Right) are full of baloney when it comes to the assertion that ‘Islam is peace’.

The Heart of Darkness

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 9/28/2014 11:25 PM

 

Islam is violent and repressive, and it is the “heart of darkness” at the center of the Islamic State’s inspiration and motivation, despite Barack Obama’s assertions in September 10th’s address to the nation that the Islamic State “is not Islamic” and that “no religion condones the killing of innocents.” Violence is an integral part of Islamic doctrine, following the example set by its prophet Mohammed, and in the name of Islam and Allah, Muslims have been murdering innocents, since 656 AD.

 

Six hundred years after Mohammed, one of Islam’s most respected scholars, Ibn Khuldan wrote ‘Muqaddimah’ (Introduction to History), which explained: “In the Muslim community, the holy war is religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and [the obligation to] convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or force.”

 

Like most good Muslims, Khaldun’s inspiration came from ‘The Verse of the Sword’, Sura 9:5, “revealed” towards the end of Mohammed’s life, as well as similar themes previous to Sura 9:

 

Sura 9:5__ “…kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them … But if they repent and perform As-Salat/ Iqamat-as-Salat [the Islamic ritual prayers], then leave their way free…” Also Sura 9:33__ “It is He [Allah] Who has sent His Messenger [Mohammed] with guidance and the religion of truth [Islam], to make it superior over all religions…”

 

The Hindu Kush, seventy-five thousand square miles between Afghanistan and Pakistan, was populated by Hindus until approximately 1000 AD and the Muslim invasions. An estimated 60 million Hindus were murdered by Muslims over a thousand year reign, and Hindu Kush is the Muslim name for the region. It means “Hindu Killer”.

 

Now today, the majority of the Muslim community worldwide, including the U.S., does not completely frown on their “holy warriors” in the Islamic State, Al Qaeda, Jaamat e-Islami and any other terror group one cares to mention, for fear of being called heretics or apostates themselves. The murderous “holy warriors” are following a literal interpretation of Koranic scripture, without omissions, innovation or revision. By contrast, heretical views deviate from doctrine.

 

The 2013 PEW Poll of the Muslim World shows that the majority of Muslims, in several countries, support the death penalty for Muslims who leave Islam, including Malaysia (58%), Egypt (88%), Jordan (83%), Afghanistan (79%), Gaza and the West Bank (62%) and Pakistan (75%); in 2006, a poll for ‘The Sunday Telegraph’ found 40% of British Muslims wanted Sharia Law in the UK and 20% supported the 7/7 bombers. And alarmingly, in 2011 nineteen percent of American Muslims stated they viewed Al Qaeda favorably, while a new poll shows 16% of the French population view the Islamic State favorably.

 

Are you beginning to see a pattern here?

Logical minded Americans were not fooled by the big lie Obama delivered before the United Nations on September 24th, when he spoke of Islam’s “great tradition that stands for … the dignity of life, not murder”. Americans see a significant number of Muslims still support Sharia Law, slavery, rape and Islamic inspired violence and murder in this 21st century, and rather than “a religion of peace”, Islam always has been and always will be an ideology of violence and conquest.

 

Don’t get me wrong. I am thankful for the many Muslims who simply adhere to the first early peaceful verses of the Koran, but let’s not allow that to dissuade us from seeing and revealing the fact that Islam was propagated through violence, staying with Mohammed’s teachings, and it is still utilizing violence today. This can clearly be seen by examining the teachings of Islam, the daily news reports and practically any good, scholarly history book.

 

One problem in Islamic tradition, affirmed by many scholars, is the doctrine of abrogation, which states that later revelation to Mohammed supersedes prior revelation. And the Koranic verses ordering Muslims to fight and slay infidels, Christians and Jews came after those admonishing Muslims to live with non-believers in peace and without religious compulsion.

 

As Obama spoke before the UN, he called on the Islamic nations and their leaders to address the spread of “extremism”, full well knowing that he was speaking to the very advocates of Wahabbist fundamentalism, other Islamic orthodoxies and proponents of inflexible, intolerant Islamic scholars, the likes of Sayyid Qutb. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, for example, have supported terrorism and financed the spread of Wahabbism and Qutb’s Islamic philosophy globally, including in America, for decades.

 

And now Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, the United Emirates and several others, who helped create, train and fund the Islamic State, are screaming for the U.S. and the West to end the vicious advance of the Islamic State. They look to destroy the Islamic State, only because they can no longer control its self-appointed “caliph”, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has announced his intentions to take Mecca and Medina; so, it is fear of losing their power and their regimes that motivates them, not any disagreement with the Islamic State’s implementation of jihad and the violent doctrines of Islam.

 

What about the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hezbollah, which means “the party of Allah”, and Hamas, which means “Islamic Resistance Movement”? Does Obama deem these Islamic entities “not Islamic” too?

 

As Obama appealed to young Muslims to follow their “great tradition [Islam] that stands for education … innovation, not destruction”, he must have intentionally forgotten some of the other traditions of Islam. The recent spate of beheadings of Westerners by the Islamic State is only the old made new again, and although horrible beyond belief, they actually pale in comparison to the heinous atrocities committed in the name of Allah across the centuries. Three thousand Catholic nuns were raped at the Church of St Sophia during the sacking of Constantinople in 1453, and many other women and children were simply torn to pieces.

 

Hadith 107:13_ It was shown the Prophet said, “Allah wrote everything we need to know about Ihsan [kindness] so if you kill, perfect your killing and if you slaughter, perfect your slaughter, perfect your slaughter and sharpen your blade and comfort your sacrifice.”

 

Koran 8:12 “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

 

Millions of devout fundamentalist orthodox Muslims, devout in the manner of Osama bin Laden_ Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, are making preparations and have already been waging a divinely endorsed war against Europe, America and Israel. And, rather than continue against all reason and, in the light of Islam’s sacred texts, to propagate the lie that “Islam is peace”, which is placing America within a quagmire of reoccurring expansionist jihad, this administration and future administrations must cut all funding to all Islamic nations and acknowledge that “extremism” and violence are the basis of Islam, if America is to win the future war against Islam.

CLAAS has nothing to do with Zafar Bhatti case…


Zafar Bhatti - Pakistan

Intro to ‘CLAAS has nothing to do with Zafar Bhatti case, says Basharat Khokhar’

Edited by John R. Houk

Posted: September 29, 2014

 

Early reports from major media outlets had been informed that Pakistan Pastor Zafar Bhatti and/or Ali (Muhammad) Asghar were shot and killed by yet another Muslim convinced he was doing Allah’s will in defense of Islam. From a Western point of view it shooting in Adayla Prison was worse because he was either a policeman or a Guard. Shamim Masih reports the earlier media reports were erroneous. Pastor Bhatti was not shot but only Ali Asghar. And Asghar’s shooting was not fatal and is reportedly in a Pakistan hospital in stable condition.

 

Here are some headlines in conjunction Adayla Prison inmates being shot:

Shamim’s point is not so much the confusion on the shooting of a Pakistani Christian Pastor and a British Muslim of Pakistan origin. Rather the point is Pakistani Christian civil rights organization the Centre for Legal Aid Assistance & Settlement (CLAAS) is making false representation claims for Pastor Zafar Bhatti.

 

The CLAAS website gets the facts correct on Pastor Bhatti and the Muslim Ali (Muhammad) Asghar but goes on to report on the 9/26/14 report:

 

CLAAS is deeply saddened on this incident and deeply concern for other blasphemy victims who confined in different Jails of Punjab.

 

Concerning about Zafar Bhatti, he is safe and sound and CLAAS has spoken to the jail superintendent to confirm the life security of him in prison. CLAAS is dealing with the legal case of Zafar Bhatti and also has good understanding with the jail staff including Superintendent. Above all CLAAS colleague from the British High Commission was at the spot to rescue Muhammad Asghar and took him to the DHQ emergency for immediate treatment and he is still with the victim in the hospital. Meanwhile CLAAS asked Nawab Bibi to go to the prison to visit Zafar Bhatti and see if he was safe.

 

CLAAS is happy that Zafar Bhatti is safe and really sad due to this unpleasant incident of murder attempt on Muhammad Asghar a British National.

 

CLAAS urged the Government of Pakistan to assure the life security of blasphemy victims with in the prisons of Punjab we have to say with a heavy heart that if the police is involve in such incidents who will provide security????

 

We ask your prayers for the life safety of all blasphemy victims confined in the prisons of Punjab and especially prayer for Zafar Bhatti, Asia Bibi and Sawan Masih in which CLAAS providing legal assistance. (Man Sentenced for Blasphemy Shot In Adiala Jail Rawalpindi, Pakistan; By asif; CLAAS; 9/26/14)

 

Shamim takes a more journalistic approach, but roughly he is reporting CLAAS is doing squat for Pastor Zafar Bhatti. Shamim has written in the past of Christian organizations in Pakistan pitching for donations deceptively and then using the funds to line personal pockets. Here Shamim does not make that specific accusation against CLAAS but I have to wonder, is this one of those occasions in which a Pakistani Christian organization is publicly pumping its name for the purpose of donations?

CLAAS has nothing to do with Zafar Bhatti case, says Basharat Khokhar

Rawalpindi – Centre for Legal Aid Assistance & Settlement – CLAAS has nothing to do with Zafar Bhatti case, said Basharat Khokhar and Khalid Shahzad. The CLAAS chief had a photo session with his family but had done nothing to save his skin.

 

According to the details, since the incident of Asghar Ali, victim of a blasphemy case, was shot by the police constable within the premises of Central Jail Adayla Rawalpindi. CLAAS reported about this case and claimed that the said organization is dealing with Zafar Bhatti’s case; blasphemy accused is safe in Adayla Jail. But Basharat Khokhar and Khalid Shahzad, social activists rejected CLAAS and said that CLAAS is no more with Zafar Bhatti’s case. Basharat told that CLAAS chief went to his family and had photo session but is not dealing with his case. He claimed that his lawyer Parvaiz Khan is his attorney and dealing actually with his case.

 

Khalid Shahzad social activist said that CLAAS is habitual in misleading the people, this organization is not doing anything on the ground. CLAAS is neither dealing with Sawan Masih nor Asia Bibi case but claiming [involvement] unfairly about both cases. He [Shazad] said CLAAS is wasting funds paying bribes and in other activities, but not doing anything for the good of Christians in the country. During Sawan Masih case, CLAAS chief took pictures with Sawan and his family using unfair means, he added.

 

On the hand, Joseph Francis chief of CLAAS said that Tahir Bashir is the attorney to Zafar Bhatti and he is being [represented] by CLAAS. He said we can prove with [a] document when required.

 

Earlier CLAAS reported that Asghar Ali s/o Hakam Dad, Muslim by faith (some people believe that he is Ahmadi by faith), victim of the blasphemy case and FIR was registered at PS Sadiqabad under section 295-C. Asghar Ali was confined in Adayla Jail, Rawalpindi shot by a police constable appointed for his security. He was immediately taken to the hospital. He was sentenced to death in January, 2014. Yousaf, police constable was appointed for his security; he shot fire within the jail premises. Asghar Ali reportedly wrote a letter claiming to be a prophet and was arrested in 2010. Religious leadership gave a verdict against him that after the prophet Mohammad no one can claim it so he has not right to live. He was convicted and sentenced to death. The new of attack and murder of Zafar Bhatti victim of 295-C imprisoned in Adiala [interchangeable with Adayla] Jail is not correct Zafar Bhatti is safe only Asghar another blasphemy victim who was sentenced to death in January 2014 was gunshot by police constable of Elite Force.

 

There were rumours that Zafar Bhatti a Christian victim of blasphemy 295-C and Telegraph Act confined in Adiala [interchangeable with Adayla] Jail was gun down by a police constable. Some of reputed national daily reported the same news which is not true. The Christian community across the country is deeply saddened on this incident and urged the authorities to assure the life of blasphemy victims in a different jail of the country. A few years back Salam Taseer (Governor Punjab) was gunned down by his security guard and was garlanded by the religious scholars.

  

[Often Christians are falsely accused] Victims of blasphemy [which] is punishable to death in Pakistan. Christian right activists in Pakistan have been claiming to revisit [the blasphemy] law, but certainly there are some organizations [that publicly present a profile of doing right, but really] are pretending [and] do nothing practical [for the falsely accused]. Pakistani Christians need education to improve their living standard. Thousands of the children are out of school and [the] drop [out] rate is getting high. This is unfortunate that rights activists are wasting their sources and energy in non-productive activities. 

 

Be Blessed,

Remembering the Martyrs’ of All Saint Church Peshawar

Remembering Islamic Terrorism in Pakistan Church

 

By Shamim Masih

Sent: 9/26/2014 9:36 AM

 

ISLAMABAD: It was sunny morning when I reached in Lahore on 22nd September, 2013; I received the phone call from my friend, he told that All Saints Church Peshawar is under the attack. As soon as I switched on the TV there was breaking news saying there was two suicide attackers struck at the end of the services at All Saints Church Peshawar. It was the deadliest attack that the Christian community had ever experienced in the history of the country. This attack had left the Christian community shocked and shattered which left 127 people dead and hundreds injured.

 

After one year Christian community around the country gathered there to offer special prayer and paid tributes to the victims of the twin suicide bombing who had lost their lives at All Saints Church Peshawar.  People are gathered to commemorate the first anniversary of the horrible suicide bombings at All Saints Church, Peshawar.

 

Bishop Azad Marshall, Bishop of Iran and Gulf went to All Saints Church Peshawar to stand along with the survivors. According toBishop Azad Marshal in Peshawar Shahzad Gill the chaplain to Rt. Rev Dr. Azad Marshall, there were gathering of 4000 people who joined hands in sharing the body of Christ at All Saints Church, Peshawar. Talking to the gathering Bishop Azad Marshall said that after one year of the incident that pain and agony hangs on; souls have [been] scarred for life but we have hope in Christ. The attack was not on the Christians of the Peshawar but also an attack on humanity. We will continue our struggle for a just and equitable Pakistan, he added. He demanded the authorities to ensure the safety and protection of the religious minorities as enshrined in the constitution of Pakistan.

 

Observing the first anniversary of the Peshawar church attack; chairman PUCM Albert David said all political parties are united in the war against terrorism and supportive to promote peace building in the country. Speaking at the Remembrance service followed by the candlelight vigil he said we as PUCM stress for a collective effort to promote the soft image of Pakistan through a peaceful and harmonized co-existence at home. Expressing solidarity with Christians Marching in Memory Peshawar Church bombingfamilies of the victims, he said that though wounds have healed however the scars remain and remind us of the tragic incident even.

                                                  

Muslim Christians Unity forum also arranged candle light vigil to pay tribute to the martyrs of the September 22, 2013 bomb blast at the All Saints Church Peshawar. Basharat Khokhar, a social activist said that federal and provincial government made many promises but nothing is being delivered so far. He targeted the Christian leadership and said political leadership is the representative of their political mother parties. They do not represent Christian minority but to their Muslim mother party.

      

The small and largely impoverished Christian community suffers discrimination intolerably [among the] Muslim majority [in] Pakistan. And nobody cares about it. 

 

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih

Alton Nolen the Oklahoman Islamic Terrorist

African-American converted to Islam Alton Nolen beheaded 54 year old Colleen Hufford and stabbed 43 year old Traci Johnson 19 times at Vaughan Foods in Moore OK. Why?

 

More details are probably forthcoming but so far it appears Nolen was fired from Vaughan Foods for a combination of proselytizing Islam and expressing a demand that women should be stoned for certain offenses to Sharia Law. The logical conclusion is Nolen wigged out for being fired and apparently went after the two women in his eye-sights with a food processing knife sawing off the head of Ms. Hufford and stabbing Ms. Johnson times before COO and Reserve Deputy Sheriff Mark Vaughan shot Nolen to prevent more stabbings and murders.

 

I wonder if President Obama and outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder will notice that a white man from Oklahoma shot a Black man.

 

So far the local police is reporting this as workplace violence even though Nolen has definite associations with Radical Muslims and an adherence to Islamic terrorists caught promoting terrorism or participating in terrorism. O yeah, in local interviews Vaughan Food workers report hearing Nolen repeating Radical Islamic phrases while beheading Ms. Hufford and stabbing Ms. Johnson.

 

Classifying Nolen’s actions only as workplace violence is insane considering his vehement proselytizing, Clerics followed, Terrorist organizations followed and Islamic utterances on his attempted mass murder spree. To make politically correct Left Wing multiculturalists happy at best the description of this heinous crime must be both workplace violence and Islamic terrorism.

 

AND to address another issue. Mark Vaughan’s foresightedness to carry a weapon saved the day from Nolen executing an intended massacre in the name of Allah. This is yet another demonstration that Leftists’ attempt to confiscate guns from pro-2nd Amendment/pro-gun rights activists is a ludicrous plan. A gun saved more lives than a gun killed anyone.

Uh Oh… Oklahoma Terror Beheader Linked to Al Qaeda Leader (Includes Updates on Beheading Story)

 

By Eric Odom

September 27, 2014 10:36 am

Liberty News

 

A plethora of new details are now available and paint a much clearer picture of what happened in the terror attack in Moore, Oklahoma last week. For those who don’t know, a Muslim man named Alton Nolen brutally attacked two individuals, severely injuring one and severing the head of the other.

 

What was Alton Nolen’s motive? McCurtain Gazette, a local print-only newspaper found details through one of Nolen’s classmates.

 

A classmate of Nolen’s, who didn’t wish to be identified, told this newspaper that he spoke to a close family member of Nolen’s today. He told this newspaper that according to the family member, Nolen was telling coworkers Thursday of an Islamic teaching that said women should be stoned for an offense, and that an argument followed the mark, Nolen was later fired and returned later Thursday, when he beheaded Colleen Hufford, the family member said.

 

So basically Nolan tried to force his fellow-workers that a woman should be stoned for certain minor offenses that violate Sharia law. The workers obviously didn’t take kindly to it and an argument broke out. As a result (not confirmed) Nolan was fired.

 

This suggest the firing is what set Nolan’s terror act in motion. Local police still refer to the beheading as workplace violence. This is likely because Nolan’s firing is what enraged him to the point of committing an act of terror. Where the workplace violence term is wrong, of course, is that Nolan was a Muslim who openly supported radical terrorist murders. Nolan admitted on his Facebook page that he believed Sharia law was coming and called for the death of America as well as Israel.

 

Workplace violence doesn’t include beheading “infidels” over religious disagreements. That’s called Jihad.

 

Speaking of Jihad, new evidence is available via Breitbart is now revealing a very, very ugly connection Nolan had through his Islam religion.

 

Suhaib Webb, an Imam with ties to former Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki, had also previously been the leader of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, which had been attended by Alton Nolen — the man who on Thursday beheaded a former coworker after recently converting to Islam, Breitbart News has learned. Webb now serves as Imam of the sister organization of the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

 

Imam Suhaib Webb has a history of ties to radicalism. FBI surveillance documents found that he was a known confidant of Al Qaeda mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki. Just two days before the September 11, 2001 attacks on America, Webb spoke at a fundraiser with Awlaki with hopes to raise funds for Atlanta-based H. Rap Brown, a man that shot and killed two police officers. The FBI documents also found that “Webb and Awlaki may be associated with the Muslim American Society,” which is a group described by the Investigative Project on Terrorism as being “founded as the United States Chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

 

It’s possible Nolan’s Imam had nothing to do with his radical Islam conversion. But isn’t it also highly suspicious that Nolan converts to Islam, attends a mosque with an Imam who had ties to Anwar al-Awlaki, and then goes on a rampage that ends in the beheading of an infidel?

 

In any event, it can no longer be questioned whether or not Nolan’s Muslim religion played a role in his act of terror via a beheading of an innocent American. The question now is, when and where will this happen next?

M. Alexander: Islamic Jihad — Target America


Islam- religion of peace

Twenty-five percent of Islam is considered Radical (See Also HERE) in the 21st century. Radical Muslims do indeed in the concept of violent jihad as a method of spreading Islam. AND the only evolution today from violent jihad is the development of a deceptive Stealth Jihad against the West and the USA in particular. Mark Alexander takes on this issue in his Patriot Post article entitled “Islamic Jihad – Target America”.

Islamic Jihad — Target America

Should You Be Concerned?

 

By Mark Alexander

Sep. 24, 2014

The Patriot Post

 

“The establishment of civil and religious liberty was the Motive which induced me to the Field.” –George Washington (1783)

 

Despite assurances to the contrary from our nation’s commander in chief, it turns out that global Jihad is thriving. And it constitutes a greater threat to our nation’s security today than at any time in history.

 

Should you be concerned?

 

Of course, the answer is “yes,” but with qualification.

 

The most imminent domestic threat to your life and property, statistically, emanates from the sociopathic drug/gang culture, which continues to metastasize on urban poverty plantations and is now spilling into suburban and rural communities. That threat has been cultivated for the last five decades by ruinous political and social policies that were, ostensibly, enacted to eradicate the poverty those policies institutionalized.

 

That notwithstanding, the elevated threat to your life from Islamic extremists should be a concern – not because the probability of being an individual victim of an Islamist assault will soon be higher than the drug/gang culture threat, but because the probability of being among the cumulative victims of a catastrophic attack on our homeland – be it conventional, nuclear or biological – is escalating largely unabated.

 

The 9/11 attack on our country was perpetrated by 19 al-Qa’ida operatives. Its immediate effects – the loss of lives and the longer-term economic impact – were devastating. It would only take five to 10 al-Qa’ida operatives to create destruction on a 100-fold scale, with a little help from Iran or other terror-sponsoring states.

 

How real is that threat?

 

Islamic terrorist groups are surging worldwide, including Jabhat al-Nusra, Boko Haram, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Taliban, Jamaat-e-Islami, Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Khorasan Group and now, front and center, ISIL, a.k.a. the Islamic State – all of which together constitute Jihadistan, that borderless nation of Islamic extremists aligned under the Qur’anic umbrella.

 

Currently there are many American Islamists actively fighting among the ranks of ISIL in the Middle East – and they have significant networks of support in the United States. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper concludes that the direct links between ISIL and those domestic networks has created “the most diverse array of threats and challenges as I’ve seen in my 50-plus years in the [intelligence] business.”

 

How did this surge get underway?

 

In 2012, amid the cascading failure of his domestic economic and social policies, Barack Obama centered his re-election campaign on his faux foreign policy successes, which were built upon the following two boasts: “Four years ago, I promised to end the war in Iraq. I did.” And “al-Qa’ida is on the run.”

 

The reality, however, is that Obama’s “hope and change” retreat from Iraq left a vacuum for the resurgence of a far more dangerous incarnation of Muslim terrorism under the ISIL label, which has displaced al-Qa’ida as the dominant asymmetric Islamic terrorist threat to the West.

 

Clearly, it is Obama’s foreign policy malfeasance that poses the greatest threat to U.S. national and homeland security.

 

So, is the Islamic State actually, well, Islamic?

 

Not according to Obama. While he subscribes to the hate-driven rhetoric of Afro-centric theology, six formative years of his early life were spent attending Islamic schools in Indonesia, and that has clearly influenced his Obama Quote- I'll Stand with Muslims - Audicity of Hopediscernment regarding Islam.

 

In his address to the UN this week, he declared, “We have reaffirmed again and again that the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace.” That was a repeat from his address to the nation last week, when he claimed, “Let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic. … And ISIL is certainly not a state.”

 

Reasonable people may disagree on whether the Islamic State now occupying much of Syria and Iraq is, at least by the Western definition, a state, but it certainly is a state in the Jihadistan context given the Islamic World of the Qur’an recognizes no political borders.

 

But for Obama to suggest “ISIL is not Islamic” is flatly absurd. Why else are American taxpayers providing Islamist prisoners at Gitmo copies of the Qur’an and payer rugs?

 

It is equally asinine, of course, for Secretary of State John Kerry to perpetuate the lie that “Islam is the Religion of Peace™” by claiming, “We must continue to repudiate the gross distortion of Islam that ISIL is spreading.”

 

Their errant assertions prompted this rebuke from Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani: “[Obama and Kerry] turned into Islamic jurists, muftis, sheikhs and preachers, standing up for Islam and the Muslims, so it appears that they no longer have confidence in the ability or sincerity of their sorcerers…”

So, is Islamic Jihad really “Islamic”?

 

There are many excellent resources for understanding Islamic extremism and the rise of Islamic terrorism. But allow me to offer a brief overview of Islam and the schism that gave rise to global Islamic Jihad.

 

In 570 AD, Abū al-Qāsim Muhammad was born in Mecca (in modern-dayProphets Genealogy - According Islam Saudi Arabia). In the year 610, Muhammad went into the hills and claims to have received instruction from an angel to spend the next 22 years as the exclusive transcriber of Allah’s message, the Qur’an, which means “recitation.” Its 114 Surahs, or chapters, outline the religious, military, civil, social, commercial and legal systems of Islam. Most Muslims believe that Islam originated with the prophet Adam, and that Noah, Abraham, Moses and Jesus were Islamic prophets.

 

After Muhammad’s death in 632, Islam split into two factions, Sunni and Shi’ite – a split originating from a dispute about whether the religion should be led by strict adherence to the Qur’an, or led by Ali, the son-in-law of Muhammad. The Sunnis (from “Ahl al-Sunna,” meaning “people of the tradition”) bonded through Muslim orthodoxy. The Shias (from “Shiat Ali,” meaning “party of Ali”) were a political alliance formed around Muhammad’s descendant.

 

Despite the split, Islam thrived, and by the 17th century, a vast Muslim empire was controlled by a powerful military and was the cultural cradle of mathematics, architecture, art, law and science. But the rise of Western military power would divide and conquer the Muslim empire by the end of the 18th century, followed by European occupations of much of that former empire over the next century.

 

By the end of World War I, Islam’s Ottoman Empire was lost. Many Muslims adapted to Western culture, while some held to old Islamic traditions. But the re-constitution of the State of Israel in 1948 seeded a resurgence of Islamic fervor, a fervor that would unleash itself 30 years later under the watch of Jimmy Carter’s administration.

 

In 1979, the powerful and strategic state of Iran fell to the Islamic Revolution, and Shia cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned to power. Student revolutionaries seized the U.S. embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage, and that act galvanized both Shia and Sunni Islamist activists throughout the Middle East.

 

Today, Shia Muslims represent majorities only in Iran, Iraq and Bahrain.

 

But Islamic Jihad, including al-Qa’ida and subsequent terrorist groups, is rooted in Sunni orthodoxy. Sunnis represent about 85% of Muslims worldwide, including countries in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

 

So again, is Islamic Jihad “Islamic”? Indeed, it is.

 Graph - Trilogy Devoted to Jihad

The Suras of the Qur’an and the Hadith (Muhammad’s teachings) require jihad, or “holy war,” against all “the enemies of God.” For the record, orthodox Sunnis understand that these “infidels” include all Muslim or non-Muslim people who refute any teachings of Muhammad – which is why ISIL Sunnis are slaughtering Iraqi Shias.

 

It should be noted here that in the Old Testament of the Christian Bible, particularly the books of Deuteronomy and Joshua, the Israelites are instructed to destroy entire cities, including women and children. But unlike the Qur’an, these acts were isolated exceptions rather than the rule. The New Testament of Jesus is devoid of any such commands, and in fact is built on the maxim of loving our neighbors as we would want to be loved, including loving our enemies. There are clearly examples of atrocities in the last 2,000 years that have been carried out in the name of the church not God – including the Catholic Crusades, the Inquisition and the Encomienda System of forced labor and conversion in Spanish America. But every Christian Historian, Theologian and Preacher brands those actions as aberrations and contrary to the faith.

 

On the other hand, few Muslim leaders worldwide, brand Islamic Jihad, which is undertaken in the name of Allah, as contrary to the faith.

 

Rebutting Obama’s assertion that Islamic Jihad is disconnected from Islam, Hoover Institution Fellow Dennis Prager writes: “Killing ‘unbelievers’ has been part of – of course not all of – Islam since its inception. Within 10 years of Muhammad’s death Muslims had conquered and violently converted whole peoples from Iran to Egypt and from Yemen to Syria. Muslims have offered conquered people death or conversion since that time. … More than 600 years after Muhammad, Ibn Khaldun, the greatest Muslim writer who ever lived, explained why Islam is the superior religion in the most highly regarded Muslim work ever written, ‘Muqaddimah,’ or ‘Introduction to History’: ‘In the Muslim community, the holy war is religious duty, because of the universalism of the Muslim mission and (the obligation to) convert everybody to Islam either by persuasion or by force.’”

 

Thus, if you’re among those who resist or refute Muhammad’s teachings, you’re a de facto enemy of Islam.

 

According to Muhammad in the Qur’anic verses, Allah commands, “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.”

 

Do you refute any teachings of Muhammad?

 

Based on the Sunni Islamist history of violence, it is clear that Islam is not “the Religion of Peace,” though a significant percentage of Muslims worldwide, and in the U.S., do not subscribe to Islamist Jihad theology. But the number of Sunni Muslims who do support that totalitarian theology is staggering.

 

According to the Pew Research Center, there are 2.75 million Muslims in the U.S. today. Notably, about 90% of Muslims in America are Sunni. The Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Nation of Islam have now established more than 2,200 mosques, some of which have become hotbeds of support for Sunni Islamist extremists. The ethnic group with the fastest growing conversion rate to Islam is Latino – 12 million of whom are now in the U.S. illegally, and who continue to pour across our southern border.

 

U.S. Mosque-Terror Networks Distribution LG map

 

Do any of those grim statistics concern you?

 

Obama declared to the UN, “When it comes to America and Islam, there is no ‘us’ and ‘them,’ there is only ‘us’ because millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country.”

 

Do have less concern now?

 

At the conclusion of the American Revolutionary War, George Washington wrote that our nation has its roots in “the establishment of civil and religious liberty.”

 

Islam, on the other hand, is founded on the abolition of civil and religious liberty – which is to say it is diametrically opposed to the notion that Liberty is “endowed by our Creator.”

IDF Eliminates Murderers of the Three Israeli Boys before Jewish New Year


Eyal Yifrach (L), Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frankel

Eyal Yifrach (L), Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frankel

 

Israel’s Shabak (Israel Security Agency – ISA) killed the two Muslim Hamas operatives that butchered three teen-Israelis (of which one held dual U.S./Israel citizenship) in June 2014.

 

In reading the report on how this took place I was surprised to learn these two murderers – in the name of Allah and an illegitimate Palestine – was given the choice to surrender under arrest. Marwan Kawasme and Amar Abu Aysha chose to fight rather than surrender to an arrest. If I was in charge I would have sent a team to break into their hideout and execute the heinous criminals a la Usama bin Laden style.

 

Apparently the two murderers chose the self-delusion that dying for Allah will send them to the eternal immortality of the pleasures of Allah’s unholy brothel. My oh my will they get a surprise to come to the spiritual reality of burning in hell for not only the murder of innocents but killing some Chosen People for simply being Jewish.

IDF Eliminates Murderers of the Three Israeli Boys before Jewish New Year

 

By Aryeh Savir – Staff Writer

September 23, 2014

United with Israel

 

Hamas terrorists who abducted and murdered three Israeli boys in June were killed by a special police unit on Tuesday. Finally there is closure, but the sorrow remains.

 

A three-month-long manhunt for Marwan Kawasme and Amar Abu Aysha, the Hamas abductors and murderers of three Israeli high-school boys – Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frankel, and Eyal Yifrach – came to an end early Tuesday morning when a special police unit, acting on intelligence gathered by the Shabak (Israel Security Agency/ISA), identified the terror cell and killed them.

 

Police forces surrounded a house in Hebron and attempted to arrest the two murderers, but they resisted and opened fire on the security forces. A gun battle ensued, during which the terrorists were killed. No injuries were reported on the Israeli side.

 

The IDF also arrested Basher Kawasme, Muhammad Kawasme and Ta’ar Kawasme in connection with the kidnapping. They are the sons of Arafat Kawasme, who was arrested on July 14 on charges of aiding the abductors to flee after the attack.

 

IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz commended Major-General Nitzan Alon, head of the IDF’s Central Command, for the successful operation.

 

“The lethal abduction and murder attack prompted Operation Brother’s Keeper, during which security forces located the bodies of the victims and succeeded in striking and severely impairing the Hamas terrorist organization in the region,” Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF spokesman, stated. “We were determined in bringing the ruthless murderers of Gilad, Eyal and Naftali to justice. The efforts have been continuous and extensive. Today’s successful mission brings the long-term search to an end, and the perpetrators of the crime no longer pose a threat to Israeli civilians.”

 

Family Business of Terror

 

The two terrorists were members of the Kawasme clan, a well-known Hamas family in the Hebron area that has been involved in terror attacks against Israelis for decades.

 

Marwan Kawasme, 29, had been arrested a number of times on charges of involvement in Hamas terror activity. He was last arrested in 2010.

 

Amar Abu Aysha, 32, was also arrested a few times on terror charges.

 

Kawasme and Abu Aysha kidnapped the three boys on June 12, while they were hitchhiking home from school in Gush Etzion. Shortly after picking the teens up, the terrorists shot and buried them in a shallow grave.

 

The IDF launched Operation Bring Back Our Boys to find them. The operation ended 18 days later when the grave was uncovered.

 

The IDF and Shabak, while continuing the search for the terrorists, managed to arrest Hussam Kawasme, the mastermind and funder of the attack, on July 11.

 

“This won’t bring back the boys,” Racheli Frankel, Naftali’s mother, told IDF Radio upon hearing the news Tuesday morning. “I am glad no one else was hurt. I was worried the terrorists would take more people with them on their way out from this world. I am happy that did not happen. I am not sad [that] I will not meet their smiling faces in court or in situations were (sic) they might have been released during a prisoner release deal.”

 

“I don’t feel anything different” Frankel said. “It’s a bit of relief that we won’t have to encounter this evil. The alternative of witnessing them celebrating in the streets would have been painful, and I am now spared of that.”

 

She added that when she told her other children that the murderers were found and killed, their response was “Yes!”

 

Sorrow Remains but Justice Achieved

 

Ezra Shaar, Gilad’s grandfather, told IDF Radio that he knew this would ultimately happen. “I always had confidence that the IDF would get to them, these lowly terrorists. They must know that we will chase them till the end, no matter where they hide or where they run to. We have settled the account with them.”

 

However, “this does not diminish our mourning and sorrow for the death of the boys. I would like to thank the IDF and the Israeli nation, who were at our side during this period.”

 

“I would like to commend the outstanding intelligence work of the ISA,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared. “I would like to commend the ISA, the Israel Police Anti-Terror Unit and the IDF. On behalf of the people of Israel I salute you for your precise and important operation. We will continue strike at terrorism everywhere. A few days after the attack I said near Hebron, the city of the patriarchs, that we would pursue the enemy, find them and not return until they had been dealt with. This morning the long arm of Israeli justice did just this.”

 

The Israeli leader spoke with the parents of the three youths following the operation. “With the advent of the New Year, nothing can assuage their pain and nothing can bring back their wonderful, dear boys,” he said. “But I told them that justice has been done and that we had carried out the mission that we promised to them and all of Israel.”

The Jihadists’ Promise: Power over Death


Why do Islamic terrorists brutally, sadistically and oft times involving acts of rape – kill people without any concern of more powerful nation brokers to punish for these mortal devices? Could it be a religious fervor of invincibility? Gatestone Institute contributor Louis René Beres reveals a very plausible reason for Muslim terrorists’ not feeling remorse or fear.

 

Every Westerner and American needs to realize that Islamic terrorists like Sunni ISIS (See Also: ‘Greta Investigates: ISIS’) or Twelver Shi’ite Iranian Revolutionary Guards (See Also HERE) fight and die with a personal sense of immortality and eternal sexual pleasure simultaneously.

The Jihadists’ Promise: Power over Death

 

By Louis René Beres

September 23, 2014 at 5:00 am

Gatestone Institute

 

Jihadi violence serves not only to advance the terrorist’s delusion of immortality, but also to add, however perversely, an apparent and desperately needed erotic satisfaction, using religion as the justification.

 

Persuasive promises of immortality — the desperate hope to live forever — underlie virtually all major religions.

 

Washington and Jerusalem should finally address what needs to be done in addition to military remediation — reinforcing efforts to convince these terrorists that their expected martyrdom is ultimately just an elaborate fiction.

 

Even after witnessing several beheadings and mass executions, American and Western strategists dealing with Jihadist terror still miss the key point. Whatever the particular terrorist group of the moment — the Islamic State [IS or ISIS], Hamas, al-Qaeda, or some other kindred terror organization — the core struggle is never really about territory, geography, or democracy. Always — in Iraq, Afghanistan Syria, or Gaza — this enemy seeks something far more important and compelling. In essence, Jihadi violence serves not only to advance the terrorist’s delusion of immortality, but also to add, however perversely, an apparent and desperately needed erotic satisfaction, using religion as the justification.

 

This core point is not difficult to understand. Persuasive promises of immortality — the desperate hope to live forever — underlie virtually all major religions. Yet this point remains neglected or misunderstood in Washington, Jerusalem, and all other Western capitals.

 

The Jihadi terrorist claims to “love death,” but in his or her mind, that “suicide” is anything but final. Ironically, these Islamist terrorists aim to conquer mortality by “killing themselves.” The would-be killer has been promised that death will represent just a trivial and momentary inconvenience, a minor detour on just one more glorious “martyr’s” fiery trajectory toward a life everlasting, in Paradise.

 

How can one ever hope to counter such a seductive promise? How can any promise compete with the incomparable promise of immortality?

 

The answer has little or nothing to do with currently envisioned applications of military force, whether as so-called “boots on the ground,” or as aerial bombardments.

 

If the problem of IS and other terrorist groups were just military, the associated threat could be solved by military acts. But as Islamist violence is expected to lead to promised martyrdom, the Jihadist terrorist will not be deterred by any threats of military reprisal.

 

In both conception and execution, Jihadist terror has little to do with land or politics or strategy. Rather, it is a routinely predictable and repetitive expression of “sacredness through violence” — taking pleasure in inflicting harm on assorted “unbelievers,” and then justifying it as doctrinally-based religious belief. This expanding network of carefully planned and staged homicides represents a current form of religious fervor: religious sacrifice, a grotesque practice that stems from pre-modern Islamic customs, which conveniently link each blessed suicide’s “martyrdom” with a selected victim’s ritual slaughter.

 

What about diplomatic solutions? As such sacrificial violence expresses “death for Allah”, there can never be any room for meaningful negotiations. For America and the West, there will never be any advantages to concessions or compromises, especially if they are sequential.

 

There also should never be any expectations of reciprocity. If, for example, Israel were to offer any further territorial surrenders to Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, or Islamic Jihad, there could be no plausible hope for any suitable quid pro quo. The surrenders would be for nothing. In all likelihood, they will only be encouraged and strengthened by repeated and one-sided territorial surrenders and prisoner exchanges, such as the sorts of concessions made regularly (and foolishly) by Israel.

 

The connection between Islamist sacrifice and political violence has a long history, including links to ancient Greece. There, Plutarch’s Sayings of Spartan Mothers revealed the model female parent as one who had reared her sons expressly for civic sacrifice.

 

The deepest roots of all Jihadist terror — whether from Iraq, Syria, “Palestine” or elsewhere — originate, at least in part, from contemporary cultures that enthusiastically embrace similar views of sacrifice.

 

To us, in the West, these hopes may sound silly. Still, in this particular sphere of world politics, there can be no greater power — or illusion — than power over death.

 

Martyrdom operations, based upon a long-codified Muslim scripture, have been associated with Jihad since the beginnings of Islam. Jubilant, celebratory invocations for this twisted and prohibited-by-international-law species of warfare can be found in the Koran and also in the Hadith, the presumptively authoritative acts and sayings of Muhammad.

 

For the U.S., Europe, and Israel, the security implications of any doctrine fusing religion, erotic passion, and violence warrant a closer look.

 

The implications for policy mean that our current and projected wars, including the well-intentioned presidential plan to “degrade” and “destroy” IS, are partially beside the point. Those responses are directed more at the symptoms of a pathology than replacing the underlying disease itself. Regrettably, they are unlikely to make any substantial dent in Jihadist thinking. Any effect on the desire of Jihadists to inflict harm may be only minimal.

 

A really good strategy needs to begin at the conceptual or psychological level. It is actually the Jihadists’ fear of death that leads them to suicide, always in the hope that any short-term “dying” — the vainglorious fantasy that “martyring” themselves — will enable them to live forever in Paradise, and as beloved heroes on Earth.

 

While Washington and Jerusalem seek “peace” — an end to bloodshed — as their overriding objective, these faith-driven adversaries appear to see “peace” as merely a pretext. Their real objective is jihadist victory over “unbelievers,” on the blessed road to a global caliphate.

 

This asymmetric view puts us all at a grievous disadvantage. While our Jihadist foes get ready for Paradise, by the slaughter of “infidels,” our own political leaders seem to remain blithely unaware of — or in denial about — their enemies’ fusion of sacredness with violence.

 

Among more “normal” conflict scenarios, America, Europe and Israel now need to consider mega-threats of both unconventional war and unconventional terrorism. Faced with determined adversaries — who are not only willing to die, but who actively seek their own “deaths” in order to live forever — Washington and Jerusalem should finally address the what needs to be done in addition to military remediation.

 

Sustained and selective armed force against IS and related Jihadist targets is certainly necessary and appropriate. However, it is also important to remind our leaders that force always needs to be combined with reinforcing efforts to convince these terrorists that their expected martyrdom is ultimately just an elaborate fiction.

 

Jihadists, in killing Americans, Israelis, and all other “unbelievers,” may not even intend to commit evil, so much as to do themselves and Allah good — and to do so with an absolute purity of heart. In their view, waging Holy War can never be shameful; it can only be heroic.

 

Going forward, our main task should be to systematically undermine these fantasies and doctrinal “underpinnings.” In conjunction with the recommended nuanced persuasions of military firepower, it can be done.

Dr. Muhammad Shafiq

 

John R. Houk

© September 20, 2014

 

Yesterday I posted an essay questioning the moderate credentials of Mohammed Shafiq and Dr. Muhammad Shafiq because of some personal confusion as to the identities of each Shafiq. In that post I cleared my identity confusion.

 

Dr. Muhammad Shafiq is from Pakistan where he completed his undergraduate work and a Master degree (1974) in Islamic Studies at the University of Peshawar (PU – pun intended). Dr. Shafiq must have attained his BA and MA at PU, but those degrees must have been attained at the PU Islamia College. At Temple University in Philadelphia he received a Religious Studies MA in 1979 and a PhD in 1982.

 

Paul Sutliff completed his MA at Nazareth College which is the same place Dr. Shafiq is both the Executive Director of the CSID program and is the IIIT representative there as the Radical Muslim organization’s Chair. Mr. Sutliff provided this mini-profile of Dr. Shafiq in an 8/11/12 post:

 

… According to Dr. Shafiq’s resume (http://www.islamicresourcebank.org/bios/shafiqmuha.htm) (CV) his doctoral advisor was Dr. Ismail Faruqi, who was a founder of IIIT, and was also a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

Dr. Faruqi was also a major player in starting the Muslim Student Association (MSA). The MSA is an organization that professes its goals are the establishment of Shariah law and Dawa which is the goal of establishing a Muslim form of government around the world through changing the people within a country that is not under Shariah law.

Dr. Faruqi is known for his coining the phrase, “Islamization of knowledge.” This phrase refers to all knowledge being see in light of Shariah (Islamic Law). This would encourage stopping Bible classes and increasing classes on Islam.

 

 

In 2003 on IIIT’s tax form, they reportedly gave $720 to the al-Haramain Islamic Foundation of Ashland, Oregon, which was designated by the U.S. government as a terrorist-funding entity guilty of tax fraud, money laundering, supporting Chechen mujahideen affiliated with al Qaeda, and maintaining “direct links between [its] U.S. branch and Usama bin Laden.”

 

 

Knowing this are you asking yourself how can a college enter a relationship with a group that supports terrorism?  My question is what happened to doing research on someone before taking a ton of their money?  But the real question is how do you feel about sending your son or daughter to a college whose ethics allow them to associate with a group that funds terrorists? (I Went to Naz as Nazareth College is; By Paul Sutliff; The Independent Chronicle; 8/11/12)

 

Now here is an eleven minute video of Dr. Muhammad Shafiq talking of the beautiful stuff of the antichrist religion Islam. While the good professor is sharing that Islam is really love while appreciating Fethullah Gulen’s secretive Hizmet Movement. Gulen is one scary dude that has Western governments convinced he represents an Islamic reform that respects individuals, democratic principles and yet esoterically a purist Islam. As calm and convincing as Dr. Shafiq is, it is obvious by association he is lying through his teeth right in line with the Muslim Brotherhood’s stealth plans for North America (And IMPORTANTLY READ THIS).

 

VIDEO: (Ep.50) Muhammad Shafiq on Fethullah Gulen and Hizmet (aka the Gulen Movement) (Part I)

 

Paul Sutliff’s report is about a verbal exchange between himself and Dr. Shafiq. In essence Sutliff calls Dr. Sutliff a liar. So that you don’t think Sutliff was being a harsh Islamophobe you might desire to read the profile of Dr. Shafiq on the last portion of my essay I entitled, “Shafiq and Dr. Shafiq – Moderate Muslims?

Dr. Shafiq vs. Me

 

By Paul Sutliff

Radio Guest Speaker on the Muslim Brotherhood

Posted September 17, 2014

LinkedIn Page

 

Last night, Dr. Mohammad Shafiq was a guest speaker at St. John’s on Humboldt Street. He was invited to talk about ISIS. He talked for a little over 45 minutes. But only addressed ISIS for a total of 14 minutes. Another speaker who was a Presbyterian minister called Shafiq his teacher also spoke on the topic.

Dr. Shafiq started the conversation by explaining what ISIS means. This was interesting considering an Arabic Muslim stated that it meant, “the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.” But, Shafiq then stated the name in Arabic saying “Sham.” Dr. Shafiq never shared how the name Sham is used by our President to mean an area much broader than Syria. He did however explain what Levant means listing the countries it would cover today. He however, neglected to state that it refers to Ottoman Caliphate in a pre WWI term that ignores the existence of Israel labeling the area as under Islamic rule.

Dr. Shafiq revealed that in the 1980s he gave speeches on jihad for which he was sorry. He mentioned Philadelphia as being one place he gave such a speech. There was a meeting in Philadelphia of the Muslim Brotherhood during this time.

Shafiq stated that Bin-Laden believed in a literal interpretation of koran, but never stated if that was the standard of all of Islam. Which is true. Dr. Shafiq also stated that Bin-Laden worked for the CIA. He claimed that the Taliban were not terrorists, and slipped and used the term innocent as part of his reasoning. Dr. Shafiq did state that Al-Qaeda was in Iraq when America went in.

Shafiq spoke of how the Saudis came to power crediting the British for giving them power for fighting the Ottoman Turks. He also made statements that implied Wahaabi [or Wahhabi] Islam had no relation or connection to the al-Saud family. Shafiq went off topic and spoke of giving a speech, which may have been in Saudi Arabia and that a friend feared him being arrested.

He stated repeatedly that the reason the US was attacked on 9/11 was US policy of interference.

Time for questions came. After a few people raised their hands I made sure Shafiq could see that I had brought the Reliance of the Traveller. The second he saw it, to talk louder, much louder. When I had a chance to ask a question, I stated that I had heard the presbyterian minister make the statement we should condemn the actions of ISIS, but I had not heard Shafiq do so. Shafiq responded he said we should pray for them. I responded that is not condemning them. ONLY THEN he stated I condemn the actions of ISIS. I said, “good taqiyya.” Then I explained he is lying to you. I informed the people that he had told them many things which are true but left much out so they would not have a grasp as to why ISIS is doing what it is doing. I then lifted up the Reliance the Traveller and encouraged people to buy it if they really want to know what Dr. Shafiq believes. I named IIIT as part of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Muslim Student Association as part of it. He stated that was not true. I replied Steve Emerson one of the foremost experts on Counter-terrorism who testifies before Congress has written about this. Then I stated what was the Muslim Brotherhood doing in Egypt? They were killing Christians and Jews. You have invited someone to speak to you about those who are killing Christians and Jews when IIIT, is part of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has done the same thing in Egypt!

Dr. Shafiq made a statement later that he had never read Al-Misri, Reliance of the Traveller, to which I said you are lying. He wanted to hug me. I said I do not hug people I do not trust! He did want to talk more. I said only if in a public place as I do not trust you. I asked Shafiq if he wanted sharia. He said no. I said Dr. Shafiq you are part of organizations that publically have stated they want sharia here. You are lying again.

I am thinking of challenging him to a public debate at the college. Me a nobody vs. the great Shafiq! I think it is something he will not pass up.

Any text enclosed in brackets are by the Editor. As the Editor of this blog I did not capitalize words I normally would; however I change one inaccurate preposition and I never have observed the spelling “Wahaabi” and so I added in brackets my most familiar spelling which is “Wahhabi”. As a reader though Arabic can often be transliterated in many English forms. ALSO after I had already began checking this story I did discover that author wrote and post a re-edit of his own entitled “Confronting the Islamist, Dr. Shafiq who was asked to speak on ISIS”. I stuck with Mr. Sutliff’s LinkedIn version because that is the first version I had read and I had used the LinkedIn version as a premise for my own post because I was confused by Mr. Sutliff’s spelling of Dr. Shafiq’s first name. On LinkedIn Mr. Sutliff used the spelling “Mohammed” rather than “Muhammad”. In looking at the research I discovered there is also a noted Moderate Brit Muslim that goes by the spelling Mohammed Shafiq. The more I read about Mo Shafiq the more I realized he was entirely different than the Dr. Muhammad Shafiq Paul Sutliff had referred. Ergo I spent a whole post on my blog differentiating Mohammed Shafiq the Brit Muslim from Dr. Muhammad Shafiq of Nazareth College located in Rochester, NY.

Megyn Kelly: Did Hillary Clinton Have Benghazi Documents SCRUBBED? (BREAKING NEWS)

The Political Insider

 

Fox News Video: Benghazi Report Manipulated?

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com

While Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is busy running the Benghazi Select Committee in the House, major news is breaking about that avoidable terrorist attack which resulted in the deaths of 4 American patriots.

 

FOX News’ Megyn Kelly discussed with Congressman Jim Jordan a report from the Heritage Foundation’s Sharyl Attkisson (a former CBS News investigator) that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered every document about the Benghazi terrorist attacks which might harm her image be destroyed by her staff.

 

Here is what Kelly said (above ):

“Hillary Clinton’s advisers may have helped tamper with documents, remove them at least, relating to the attack that killed for Americans, before those documents were handed over to investigators working for the ARB (Accountability Review Board).”

 

Attkisson’s report shows that Hillary Clinton supporter Raymond Maxwell, who once ran the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, is claiming he “he walked into the State Department one night, and that they [State Department employee] were scrubbing documents.”

 

Kelly said that when Maxwell walked in, he was told, “Ray, we are to go through these stacks, pull out anything that might be anybody in the Near Eastern Affairs office, or the 7th floor (Hillary Clinton’s floor of the building) in a bad light.” Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills was also present during the blatant cover-up effort.

 

When Maxwell asked, “Isn’t that unethical?” he was told, “Ray, those are our orders.”
