Beheaded (Christian) girls were Ramadan ?trophies?

If the Democrats think the Islamic Jihadists will respect them more than President Bush then read this! This is an article everyone needs to read. If you think that because you refuse to be politically incorrect and see these inhuman animals for what they are that they will somehow respect you enough not to do to you what they did to these young girls, then think again! It will get worse.

Beheaded girls were Ramadan ‘trophies’

THREE Christian high school girls were beheaded as a Ramadan “trophy” by Indonesian militants who conceived the idea after a visit to Philippines jihadists, a court heard yesterday.

The girls’ severed heads were dumped in plastic bags in their village in Indonesia’s strife-torn Central Sulawesi province, along with a handwritten note threatening more such attacks. The note read: “Wanted: 100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female; blood shall be answered with blood, soul with soul, head with head.”

Javanese trader Hasanuddin appeared in Jakarta Central Court yesterday charged with planning and directing the murders in October last year. He faces a death sentence if found guilty under anti-terrorism legislation.

Hasanuddin allegedly returned from a visit to members of Philippines Islamist group the Moro Islamic Liberation Front with tales of how that organisation regularly staged bombings to coincide with Lebaran, the festival that ends the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. He later spoke with a preacher in Poso, Central Sulawesi, about whether such a plan could work in Indonesia, but expressed doubt about whether it was appropriate.

Beheaded girls were Ramadan ‘trophies’
Stephen Fitzpatrick, Jakarta correspondent
09nov06

THREE Christian high school girls were beheaded as a Ramadan “trophy” by Indonesian militants who conceived the idea after a visit to Philippines jihadists, a court heard yesterday.

The girls’ severed heads were dumped in plastic bags in their village in Indonesia’s strife-torn Central Sulawesi province, along with a handwritten note threatening more such attacks. The note read: “Wanted: 100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female; blood shall be answered with blood, soul with soul, head with head.”

Javanese trader Hasanuddin appeared in Jakarta Central Court yesterday charged with planning and directing the murders in October last year. He faces a death sentence if found guilty under anti-terrorism legislation.

Hasanuddin allegedly returned from a visit to members of Philippines Islamist group the Moro Islamic Liberation Front with tales of how that organisation regularly staged bombings to coincide with Lebaran, the festival that ends the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. He later spoke with a preacher in Poso, Central Sulawesi, about whether such a plan could work in Indonesia, but expressed doubt about whether it was appropriate.

However, after further discussion with friends, he decided that beheading Christians could qualify as an act of Muslim charity.

Conscripting several accomplices at a local pesantren, or Islamic school, he directed one of them, Lilik Purnomo, to seek out “the head of a Christian”, prosecutors alleged.

“It would be a great Lebaran trophy if we got a Christian. Go search for the best place for us to find one,” Hasanuddin allegedly ordered his companion.

Lilik returned to say he had found an “excellent” target - a group of schoolgirls who travelled to and from class by foot in the Central Sulawesi village of Gebong Rejo. The village is in the district of Poso, where hundreds of people have died in sectarian violence in recent years.

Many observers worry that Central Sulawesi has become the latest battleground in a deadly jihad.

Three Christian men were executed there last month for their role in a massacre of Muslims in 2000 and there have been a series of deadly attacks in the province in recent months.

Prosecutors yesterday detailed how Hasanuddin, Lilik and co-accused Irwanto Irano planned the schoolgirl beheadings with six other men. They prepared six machetes and black plastic bags for carrying off the severed heads and spent several days surveying the area where the students regularly passed by.

The operation was called off on one occasion, when a woman spotted the attackers hiding by the roadside, waiting for their victims. On the night before the attack, Lilik told Hasanuddin: “I hope you are ready to receive your Lebaran gift.”

The attack was launched the following morning, but only four of the six targeted girls appeared.

Lilik, directing the attack from a nearby hill, told his accomplices to act quickly so that the remaining two girls could still be killed should they appear behind their friends.

The attackers cleanly beheaded three of the students but a fourth, Noviana Malewa, escaped after a struggle and ran away screaming. Her attackers gave chase but were unable to catch her.

The bodies, dressed in school uniform, were left by the roadside near the execution site, but the heads were carried in a backpack to Hasanuddin.The trial of his two co-accomplices was adjourned until Wednesday, when Hasanuddin will also reappear.

What I don't understand is why they behead three people, leaving a note saying they'd get 100 more, saying they were answering "head with head."

Whose heads do these knuckleheads think they're answering for? Did they say? Are there 103 people out there without heads who they are avenging? If so, who are they?

These people are clearly off their nuts. Anyone who trieds to justify, explain away or blame Americans for (or any other country) these actions are also screwed up.

We truly do have many real enemies here at home: Extremist muslims, moderate muslims who won't stand up and expose and them, and anti-American nationals who complain and focus on every negative things America has done.

We must stand up very strongly, with outrage, confrontation, education and dissest to these people, publically denouncing them and doing everything we can to shut them up. There are WEAK COWARDS by nature only respond to strength and ridicule (because of their pride). if they fight back, fight back harder and condemn what they say, denouncing them even harder.

This works for me in liberal NYC (a city I love) and will work anywhere and everywhere.

I think we ought to start identifying mosques in our cities, finding out which ones' leaders are associated with extremists, and start publically picketing them in the strongest way we know how -- but in a way that will not reflect on us negatively if the media catches us. With all due respect to FReepers -- who I love -- I must say many of our tactics are juvenile and sometimes a bit dumb-ass (for example, our tactics against Hillary).

When such a mosque is identified, we need to know the identity of the leaders and boards running them by name and address, the owners of the buildings, the banks who lent them the money for their mosques, and anyone else relevant. Focusing on one mosque comprehensively will teach us how these mosques are set up, and once we have enough ammunition and a well-planned, lengthy campaign, we can make a splash, keeping other mosques informed of what will happen to them

Additionall, we need to treat the members with a level of dignity which will take them off guard, even as we denounce what they are doing.

These Muslims are monsters and to the bleeding heart morons who won yesterday.....Muslim and Islamic religious fanatics are laughing their a$$es off at America right now. You can't play nice with people who want to behead you and your children. They wanted the dems to win because they know they have a chance at hitting us again. And they hate gays to too so Nancy with her San Fran gays will be right in their targets. Where these bleeding heart morons have been for the past few yrs makes me wonder. All I know is its going to get worse. I see no plan, all I saw was name calling and bickering. Who hears what the American people want? Any religion who will behead innocent girls in the name of Allah or whatever they call him isn't going to play nice now that the dems have won. I just wonder what they plan to do now. I hope they have some kind of a serious plan because from what I see, its not looking good. And since terrorists were all for the dems that makes me feel ill at ease for sure.

Just the majority that voted. The 'Broken Glass' Republicans were no-shows yesterday. They wanted to teach the Republicans in leadership a lesson. Hard lesson. Now we will have 2 years of soft Dems negotiating with terrorists. You can't negotiate with people who have no regard for their own lives. You simply have to kill them. The Dems don't get that. It will take several years to get back to the place we are now, and that will happen only if we can prevail in 2008.

Nancy Pelosi claimed (in relation to Foleygate) that she is a lioness protecting the "cubs" - I'm sure the Islamo-fascists will be most impressed by her fierceness and will stop collecting such "Ramadan trophies" as the heads of Christian girls. Now that the Demagogues are in the majority, the terrorists are quaking amidst their camel dung.... /s

This is truly WAR, not civil rights protests. The nature of Islam requires that all those mosques be pulled down and ALL of the Mohammedans in America be deported, not excepting Mr. Farrakhan's own aspiring headhunters. This is going to get much worse and soon. As the Latinos realize that the Moors have the only real Authority in the world and that America has recognized that fact, those in and coming to the United States illegally and their "legal" progeny will start to convert to the Headhunters' religion. We will go from Islam being an obnoxious but tiny minority to it being the source of political power in just a couple of years with millions of reinforcements from all over Latin America every year. This election opens the gates wide and puts out welcome mats all along the southern border. The Republican President not only wants to welcome the invasion flood, he wants to, in effect, pay them to invade. The Crat congress will go enthusiastically along. I suspect the Republican president by desiring "Amnesty" and having an opposition party that craves it will bring in a Democrat voting majority that will end Republicans as any sort of political force in America permanently. Those illegals vote and they are all Democrats. That one little quirk in a Republican president has probably turned the incipient Republican Century into the Marxist-to-Sharia Millenium.

You are right, this is a war, and deporting Muslims might do some good, but a] it is never going to happen and b] extreme Jihadists can just as easily start chess clubs and bowling associations to find places to meet and recruit.

At this moment, we must turn the heat up publically on the mosques -- it is something we can do legally. We need to start with facts, hard facts, and be very selective about who we

It should definitely be more than picketing and civil protests -- I agree with you. We as citizens should wage a citizens war -- using all legal means to embarrass these people, make them afraid to meet and show their faces, make them slink back into caves, and let the public know what they are doing. If a bank has loaned them money, we need to write their boards and shareholders and credit risk departments and public affairs offices (some of which do pay attention) and get the word within the bank that outsiders know about this and get them to drop their loans.

I have a sibling in the CIA, and let me tell you, they are watching these mosques and the individuals in them. But they need more people doing background research and bringing them to light, so they can spend less time finding extremists (which we can do legally) and spend more time doing something about them.

Thanks for your thoughtful response to my post.

"They know they are in an existential war of conquest and we think it is a persuasion problem."

Well said.

When you will not name the enemy for fear of offending them, you have lost. When you constantly praise your enemy's ideology, you have lost. When you try to buy them or win the "hearts and minds" of people who believe they are superior and everything is the will of Allah - including your "generosity" they view as tribute, you have lost ( I could point to the video of the hijacker wanting to kill us for helping Muslims in Kosovo... it wasn't US that helped them, you see. It was the "will of Allah".)

Point to one Western leader willing to name the enemy.

Perhaps Howard in Australia. Maybe. Someday. He's the closest.

Western Civilization has collectively lost the will to live. This time, it may not recover. The world's too small. It's going to be an interesting time, quoting the old proverb.

Damn them all. Every last political operator. Every last fool in our parliaments and congresses. Every last diplomat looking for his retirement job from the Saudis. Every last "learned man" on the faculty preaching hate for all things Western.... Damn them all to hell.

From the Chicago Suntimes:

"With many voters angry at Bush and the Republican leadership in Congress, Democrats were winning the vote among several groups that have usually been very closely contested -- independents, moderates, the middle class and suburban women, according to exit polls."

Medved reported that the Christian Conservative vote was very strong, but secular Conservative was not as strong. I believe most of the base was there. We did not do a very good job appealing to the independants and moderates who put their wet finger in the air before voting.

I can't understand why Christians help these people. When Dalton, Georgia, only had a hand full of Muslims Saint Marks Episcopal Church allowed them to use their facilities. Now, the Muslim community is large enough to build a mosque. IMHO, assisting the growth of Islam is anti Christian.

Any Christian church that allows worship of a foreign god, idolatry, is committing an act of heresey.

This is what happens when we forget the 'Law of Moses' and concentrate soley on the 'Love of Christ'.

People have to understand that the latter is the completion and fulfillment of the former, not the replacement.

The church is infected with liberalism just as much as our society.
