'BURN IN HELL, AL-ZARQAWI!
NY Post ^ | 11/11/2005 | By URI DAN in Jerusalem and NILES LATHEM in Washington

Posted on 11/11/2005 6:15:44 AM PST by Personal Responsibility

November 11, 2005 -- Thousands of Arabs, outraged by the Muslim-vs.-Muslim bombings in Jordan, angrily rallied against al Qaeda yesterday as investigators arrested Iraqi suspects. "Burn in hell, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi!" Jordanians chanted outside one of the hotels blasted by alleged supporters of al Qaeda's Iraqi chief.

I realize this has been posted before but there is a line in this article that just left me dumbfounded. It says:

In the family's West Bank home town of Silet al-Thaher, Najah Akhras, 35, wept over her two nieces who were killed.

"Oh, my God . . . Is it possible that Arabs are killing Arabs, Muslims killing Muslims?" she said.

I would comment further but I just can't find the words. Is it possible she does not know? Can anyone be that ignorant?

when Jordan sends a division into Iraq to assist in the hunt for zar-whassisname, then i'll beleive that they are upset.

if everybody who was attacked by al-quada responded by joining the search to eliminate them, they'd have a real short lifespan. unfortunately, like Spain most of their victims do the ostrich routine, and leave the ifghting to us.

Saw Queen Noor on one of the blather shows last night.

She was saying stuff like, "They've made a tactical error." "Now, they've commited a sin against Islam.


I guess 9/11, etc., didn't qualify.

They can be ignorant if they get their news from the likes of al Jazeera and other pro-islamist sources. These people are comparable to those in the US - liberals and other anti-Americans - who get their "news" (really, propaganda) from the so-called "mainstream media" (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, NYT, LA Times, and so forth). In fact, there is little to no difference between the unbashed pro-islamist slant of al Jazeera and the anti-American, pro-islamist slant of the US "news" (really, democrat national party mouthpiece) media. I'm guessing there are people in the US (Manhattan, Seattle, San Francisco, Boston, Berkeley, CA, Madison, WI, and so on) who believe muslims kill only infidels, in particular Americans, and that it is their duty to do so and they applaud it.

I saw Queen Rania on GMA this morning, and she told Diane Sawyer, who was on about the reasons for the bombing (namely Iraq), that the reasons for the bombing didn't matter. Took what I thought was a hard line against terrorism period. I was pretty impressed.

Islam is not a "religion" in the sense of Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and such. It is a politically-driven death cult that seeks world submission or death to those who refuse. It is an abomination of all that Christians hold dear and believe. Islam really is the work of Satan, carried out by Satan's minions.

In all due respect, it has everything to do with religion (Islam). Since its very beginning, Islam has been spread by violence and maintained by violence. Only apostates and heretics are peaceful.

The Jordanians are outrage that Zarqawi killed fellow muslims. They don't mind that he or others kill the kuffar because that is called for by the Koran and the Prophet and Allah.

It does seem possible that this was a major tactical error. Even Al-reuters and the American press are having trouble justifying this attack and blaming it on Bush. Almost all the dead are Muslims, Jordan is a muslim country, and the terrosost rationale is that Americans and Jews stay at the hotels?

This was really dumb.

A few Arabs are blonde and some have blue eyes, particularly in that part of the mid-east. Probably they are descendents of European crusaders.

You have to realize that as long as the Muslims are killing Westerners or Jews its okay - no big deal. But NOW they are killing Jordanians, Palestinians, etc. thats a big deal. That's their mindset. Al Zarqawi made a huge mistake this time and in a way maybe it will be a good thing for us in that the muslims will start feeling the hate we feel for Al Zarqawi and stop idolizing him. I hate to say this but sometimes it takes a horrible tragedy like this for them to see the truth.

These demonstrations are sponsored by the government. Jordan has been playing the middle man with Iraq for decades. With our tacit acceptance and approval, they openly violated the UN sanctions against Iraq. They did not condemn Iraq for invading Kuwait. Let's remember, AL-ZARQAWI was born in Jordan.

Yes! Those in our own government that support the terrorists - at one time they agreed with Europe, the United Nations and America that terrorism must be stopped and that OBL was to be destroyed.

Now they support just the opposite so they must support Arab killing Arab, i.e. Muslim killing Muslim - just as they are determined to reduce America and Americans to Socialism - they are killing Americans!

FR doesn't need statements like this.
You say that Hinduism is a 'real' religion, but Islam is not.
Ever heard of the Cult of Kali, Hindu goddess of death? Their idea of worship was to randomly garotte strangers as sacrifices to the black goddess.
The Brits (who were running India at the time) took the expedient step of killing every Thuggee (the name of the cultists, where we get the word 'thug') that they could lay their hands on. The senseless killings didn't stop until the last of the cultists were dead.
It's the same thing here with Islam. Don't you dare condemn an entire faith because of a bunch of depraved cultists.
Or should we judge all Christians by the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, the Witch Burnings, and the Abortion Clinic Bombings? Oh, right- they were doing "God's work" and killing evil people, so that excuses the violence.
That's the same excuse Al-Zarqawi used, as reported in today's newspaper.

Queen Raina is, I believe, an American who converted to Islam when she married King Abdullah. Last I knew, he was probably the most moderate of the Islamic leaders, and if I recall correctly Jordan signed a peace treaty with Israel awhile back.

Maybe I was off the mark including Hinduism in my post. However, I stand by my views of islam and its purveyors. Where in the Bible does it say that it is the duty of Christians to convert non-believers or kill them if they refuse? Abortion clinic bombers? One or two have cropped up, but islamic murderers are rampant worldwide. I will condemn an entire "faith" - islam - because it is not a faith in the sense most people in the civilized West consider one to be. It is a cult.

"world submission..." The rules for infidels (non muslims) are simple: convert all those willing and convert by force all those unwilling, and in the final enslave or kill all those who absolutely refuse to convert.

My point is this. IMHO out of the world's roughly two billion Muslims, perhaps twenty million sympathize with the terrorists, and perhaps two million are terrorists.
I want those two million Muslim terrorists dead ASAP.
I want the twenty million sympathizers watched carefully.
I have no beef with the other 1,980,000,000 Muslims on the planet.
And if my figures are off, and it's twenty million terrorists, or two hundred million, I still want them dead.
It's a free planet- or should be. If folks want to march up and down chanting "Death to America" that's fine.
Try to kill Americans, though, and I got a big problem with that.
What we're offering to Muslims- and everyone else- is a simple choice. Live in peace with your neighbors, and respect their rights- or die. At least that's the way it would be if we had real leadership in the world.

There are more and more indicators that Z shot himself in the foot (more accurately, his network of terrorists over reached, and seriously hurt themselves). The Australian link here suggests that the second communique put out on the internet yesterday was tacit acknowledgement that they know they blew it big time:

http://www.heraldsun.news.com.au/common/story_page/0,5478,17214591%255E663,00.html

"After first claiming responsibility for attacks on three hotels popular with Israelis and Westerners, al-Qaida in Iraq -- led by Jordanian-born militant Zarqawi -- later issued a second internet statement that appeared to acknowledge its tactics might have backfired and undermined any support the group enjoyed among the Jordanian population."

There are over 160 passages in the Qur'an that teach that it is the responsibility of Muslims to either convert, subjugate, or kill unbelievers -- especially Jews and Christians. The ahadith, collections of sayings and deeds of Mohammed, are considered inspired by Muslims and normative for acceptable behavior. There are multiplied hundreds of statements made by "the prophet" urging all faithful disciples to kill, terrorize, and brutalize. Jihad is defined in these documents as holy war - NOT inner struggle. And it is incumbent on all good Muslims to participate. When Muslims participate in terror and murder, they are not radicals who have "hijacked" a peaceful religion. THEY ARE SIMPLY DOING WHAT THEIR HOLY BOOKS COMMAND THEM TO DO. As long as there are people who believe that Mohammed was a prophet of God, and that the Qur'an is the word of God, this stuff will never go away.

You have some good points. However, I think that if we in America are to live in peace with islam, and the nearly 2 billion or so with whom you have no beef, is it not incumbent on the latter to be heard, that they do not hold the same beliefs as the islamists? Or, is it logical to hold that by their silence they acquiesce to the islamists beliefs? Taking your view, they (the nearly 2 billion muslims who purportedly are not "terrorists") are the "Silent Majority" of islam, or so some would have us believe. I am of the view that until the majority of "peaceful" muslims state unequivocally that they are with us, they must be viewed with suspicion, even as the enemy of America.

I didn't see anything like that in the second statement.

StillProud, did you see anything like this on the Jihadi boards or newsletters?

Here is StillProud's jihadi translations, Cap Huff.

http://www.lauramansfield.com/j/default.asp

10 November 2005 - Zarqawi audio from April promising "what is to come will be more vicious and more bitter" rereleased today

A 7 minutes, 23 second audio tape, originally released April 29, 2005, was released this morning by Abu Mus'ab al Zarqawi, whose group took credit for yesterday's attacks in Amman, is promising more attacks.

In the tape, he promises "what is to come will be more vicious and more bitter" than the attacks yesterday in Amman.

Although it is not possible to completely authenticate the tape, the voice and format, as well as the method of distribution, are consistent with those previously released by Zarqawi. It has been widely acknowedged at the time of the April release that it was almost certainly Zarqawi.

10 November 2005 - Al Qaeda in Iraq takes credit for Amman blasts

A second, and much more credible, claim of responsibility for yesterday's Amman attacks has emerged from Al Qaeda of Mesopotamia, the branch of the terror organization run by Jordanian Abu Mus'ab al Zarqawi.

The posting was made on a number of jihadi websites during the night by Abu Masayra al Iraqi, who traditionally releases statements on behalf of the group. The posting was also released on the Ansar-Jihad mailing list.

Although it is not possible, based on the posting alone, to attribute responsibility for the blasts to the group, it is likely that this is a credible post and that the Zarqawi-led Al Qaeda is in fact responsible for the attacks.

The near-simultaneous blasts certainly bear all of the hallmarks of an Al Qaeda operation.

The claim of responsibility includes the following statement: "We will announce the details of the battle at a later time".

This strongly suggests that one or more of the attacks were videotaped, and that we can expect the traditional celebratory video.

Translation of statement of responsibility from Al Qaeda for Amman attacks

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and our prayers and greetings to the imam of the Mujahideen, our prophet Mohamed, and to his family and his companions.

And then:

In these blessed days, we fight in the name of Tawhid (monotheism) and against the tyranny and the treachery of the disbelieving Crusaders in Mesopotamia, and who write the epics of glory in this time.

A group of our strongest lions from one of the battalions of al Qaeda, the Brigade of Al Bara’a Bin Malek, in defense of their religion and to spread the word of Monotheism, have opened a new battle against some of the dens that were planted in the land of the Muslims in Amman. After studying the targets, and completing our surveillance, we chose these hotels as the targets of this attack is because the Jordanian tyrant (reference to King Abdullah) had turned them into a backyard for the enemies of the faith, the Jews and for the apostate traitors, a safe haven for the intelligence services of the unbelievers, who run their conspiracy against Muslims from there. It is a center of prostitution and debauchery in the way against Allah and his Messenger.

Despite the security measures implemented by the tyrant and the tyrant’s son to protect these dens, the soldiers of Al Qaeda were able to arrive at their targets, and carry out the attacks, as was confirmed to us from the news sources. We will declare the details of the battle at a later time, God willing.

So let the tyrant of Amman know that the wall of protection for the Jews, which was built in East Jordan, and the backyard of the Crusader’s armies and the descendents of Ibn al Alqami, has become a target for the Mujhaideen and their attacks; he and his masters should expect the worst. the worst.

Allah Akbar! Allak Akbar! Honor be to Allah and to his Messenger and to the Mujahideen!

You gotta' love these muslim clowns. They have funnier, better names than the black street gangs did back in the 1970s and '80s. The "Brigade of Al Bara’a Bin Malek" is as rich as the "Black P Stone Nation" for outright comedy. Their "lions" demonstrate such bravery, such manliness, blowing up unarmed civilians in hotels and resorts...I'm impressed.

Is it possible she does not know? Can anyone be that ignorant?

If her only source of news is al Jazeerah, and the local Muslim newpapers, what can we expect? She's getting all the news they see fit to print. Sounds like our MSM before the advent of the 'new media'.

Here's hoping that regular, non fundamentalist, Muslims will get a belly full of the radicals and shut them down.

His point is that any religion that explicitly calls for the INITIATION of force in its sacred texts is invalid.

Anyway, regarding the Christian examples...

Crusades: Counterattack in a much larger and longer war.
Witch Burnings: If there really exist people who are cursing and killing others through dark magic, what would you do with them?
Abortion Clinic Bombings: Small number of people explicitly, clearly and loudly condemned by the overwhelming majority of their co-religionists. Abortion clinic bombing also can't be justified using the Gospels or the Catechism.

I've seen some "hints" that the MSM is trying to link our "occupation" of Iraq as the reason for the bombings, since all the bombers were "Iraqi." Hence, "Bush's Fault."

I'm sure it's already on DU, which means it will be on CNN.
