Sderot: Day Five

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends this update with the latest on the situation in Sderot.

Sderot: Day 5

by MC

It is Shabbat and quiet. There are still a few projectiles flying around, but the tempo has decreased dramatically. News station that operate on Shabbat are reporting street incidents between Arab rioters and Israeli vigilante groups.

Arabs in Israel are split between Christian (Maronite) and Muslim, with the Muslims in the majority, but some of those Muslims are Druse, who tend to be more pro-Israel. The street fighting is worrying, but on the whole Israeli Arabs are better off in Israel than in any of the surrounding states and they know it. The have full and complete Israeli citizenship, enhanced by a form of positive discrimination in higher education (there are many in the universities who believe in equality of outcome).

Islam tends to endow its victims with a paucity of ‘spirit’. The curiosity is that Jews and Christians who have been despised minorities in Arab lands continue to display this paucity of spirit. The generations of Jews who fled North Africa in the early fifties brought with them the Dhimmi attitude, which is only now dissipating in the third generation.

One of the major unheralded achievements of Israel has been the absorption of millions of desperate immigrants, first those fleeing from Czarist Russia, followed by refugees from Nazi Germany, then from the Muslim world after the war of Independence (1948), and finally from the USSR. Recently we have seen those who are fleeing the growing wokist anti-Semitism in Europe and the USA.

That latest batch includes me and my family, of course. Those who survived the Germans were the ones who got out early. There is a constant undertow of anti-Semitism from the Left in the UK, and as the so-called ‘Conservative’ party moves slowly to the political left, increasing Muslim anti-Semitism goes unchecked.

But all these immigrants to Israel had/have things in common: their Jewish identity, and a desire to become part of Israel. There are no ‘economic’ migrants to Israel. Nobody comes to exploit and asset-strip; they come here for safety. Perhaps the biggest problems have been with Russians pretending to be Jews and the Yemenites who, through no fault of their own, were exploited by the socialist government of Ben Gurion.

Much of the Arab/Israeli problem is the result of the British preference for Arab/Muslim over Jew, and thus huge Muslim immigration in the late ’20s, ’30s and ’40s (Biden beware). In 1922 Britain wanted a colony, but instead they got a Mandate (thanks to the USA) to build a Jewish homeland. Britain allowed unrestricted Muslim entry, but strictly controlled Jewish resettlement. Of the ‘refugees’ who fled during the War of Independence, a huge majority had only recently been brought in by the British for war work. They have lived ever since courtesy of UNRWA and the taxpayers of the USA and Europe.

Sderot: Day Two

Below is MC’s report on the second day of the Hamas missile attack on Sderot (and points north). Previously: Day One.

Sderot: Day Two

by MC

It was a noisy night. Early this morning we had three volleys come in, the first of about a dozen missiles which all missed, and a second volley where Iron Dome took out those on course to hit the city.

Sderot is one of the best-protected of Israeli cities, last time I went down to the site last week; there were three Iron Dome Launchers.

They (Hamas) have dared to fire missiles at Tel Aviv — the left-wing bubble. So now it gets serious, one cannot befoul the sacred socialist ground of secular Israel without consequences.

Politically it is all up in the air — we await government action, but government is in flux. The politicians don’t want Bibi Netanyahu to be Prime Minister, even though his party got the largest chunk of the vote. I assume that the next step will be the concentrating of forces around Gaza. The buildup to another limited invasion which will kick the can down the road.

The New York Times is distorting things, as usual. Although the excuse is supposedly about Muslims paying rent to Jews in East Jerusalem, it is really about the supposed ‘election’ in the Palestinian Authority areas which the PA cancelled when they realized they were going to lose. Cancelling the election means that Hamas has to make a show of force, and here we are.

Because the Biden administration is weak, and limited by the innate anti-Semitism of a woke Democratic party, Hamas can attack Israel to demonstrate its worthiness to lead the Palestinian cause. Some people find it very difficult to understand that it only takes one bully to make a war. The victim is then forced to defend or surrender/appease.

Israel cannot surrender and cannot appease. Nobody wants six million Jewish refugees, and there is no point in doing a deal with any Muslim because they are not bound by deals with infidels.

So Hamas picks the soft target, and hopes that world public opinion will keep Israel on a short leash. Ireland is already playing the game, and I am sure others will soon follow.

In the meantime we find Hamas firing an anti-tank missile at a military Jeep across the border, killing one person and injuring two more. This would be a war crime — except that those killed are Jews, so it does not matter to the deep state swamp monsters.

Can one imagine Cuba sending missiles over to Florida? What would President Trump do? What would ‘President’ Biden do?

Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Religion of ‘Peace’

Our Israeli correspondent MC sends a first-hand report from Sderot on the latest barrage of Palestinian missiles from Gaza.

Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and the religion of ‘Peace’

by MC

Israeli civilians get bombed out of their homes by the Muslim Brotherhood, but the UN calls upon Israel to show ‘restraint’.

And Israel knows that taking effective measures against Muslim Brotherhood war crimes will bring even more approbation on Israel. Such is the life of Jews and a Jewish State, for Jews are ‘special’ in a uniquely negative way. Hamas blatantly fires missiles at civilians, and the ICC ignores it and threatens to investigate Israel for defending itself. This is the left-wing way, the Biden way.

Last night the rain (sic) of terror for us here in Sderot began around 6pm as the first missiles started to come in. Further down the Gaza envelope it started even earlier, with incendiary balloons creating about a dozen large conflagrations.

Gaza is not ‘occupied’: Israeli Jews were forcibly removed from Gaza about sixteen years ago, having resided there continuously for millennia. For the first time since King David, Gaza was now Judenrein.

But it is not enough for the cruel Muslim psyche, they want it all — from the river to the sea, ‘Palestine’ will be Jew-free. The intention was to literally bring Auschwitz to Palestine and incinerate every last Jewish man, woman and child, but the Nazis lost (and live on in Hamas). But this Holocaust Mark II is still the intention of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, its local operative, and is also the intention of CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood pressure group in the USA.

The arrival of a volley of rockets is announced by loudspeakers “Sever Adom” (condition red) and almost simultaneously comes the roar of the Iron Dome. If it is a successful intercept, then there are two loud bangs and a shock wave if it is within a few hundred yards, maybe followed up by the whizzing pinging of fragments. Sderot is small, less than a square mile in area, so the missiles are nearly always close — see the photo taken by me yesterday evening from our porch.

The updated Iron Dome intercepts give smoke rings…

If the intercept fails (rarely) then there is a different sequence: the incoming missile is knocked off course (it is gliding by this time) but not destroyed; it explodes as it hits the ground with a different quality of bang.

It is 9 o’clock the next morning as I write. The bangs are still going on — there is a war going on out there. Sderot itself is very quiet, no traffic. The trains have been stopped and some roads are closed — almost everyone stays under cover; we all know the drill.

Many of the children have grown up with this. They, too, learn the drill from Gan (kindergarten) upwards.

A Medley of Cultural Enrichment, Video Edition

The recent power outages along with my getting a jab in the eye made me emulate Bill Clinton — I’m getting a little behind in my work. Numerous items have accumulated over the past three days, so I’m going collect them in groups based on their general topics.

There were so many cultural enrichment stories that I’ve divided them into two posts, one consisting of videos and the other of articles. One article that accompanies a video report will be posted here with all the videos.

The first video concerns a particularly gruesome murder that took place in the French city of Mérignac, near Bordeaux. The alleged perpetrator is an Algerian culture-enricher, if I am not mistaken. He is reported to have shot his wife and then burned her alive while she was rendered helpless by her wounds.

Many thanks to HeHa, Gary Fouse, and Sassy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

The accompanying article about the murder in Mérignac was translated by HeHa:

Mother burned alive in Mérignac had filed complaint against her companion who had just left prison

In the aftermath of the drama, astonishment and terror are still very much alive in this suburban quarter of Mérignac. A woman aged 31, the mother of three children, is dead in the middle of the street after being burned alive by her companion. He had just come out of prison.

May 5, 2021

There is incomprehension in this suburban quarter of quiet reputation in Mérignac. How could such a drama have happened? At 18:10 Tuesday evening, May 4, when the residents of Avenue Carnot heard cries and bangs.

“At first, we thought it was firecrackers,” says a local resident. “We thought the young people were having fun.”

But very quickly they realized the drama that was building up. According to the first elements, the 31-year-old woman manages to flee from the house, but she can’t go very far, followed by her armed companion in the street.

“We passed him. He passed in front of us with a shotgun and some cartridges. We called the police. In the meantime, he set fire to the house.”

According to the Bordeaux prosecutor’s office, “two witnesses saw her fall to the ground.” Her partner, armed, shot her once, then a second time. She was wounded in her thighs, lying on the street, but still breathing.

The 44-year-old individual, from whom she was officially separated, took a can from a van parked nearby, splashed his wife with a liquid, and set her on fire. The first responders could not save her. The family home, situated a few hundred meters from the scene, was discovered at the same time, partially burned and empty of occupants.

The perpetrator, who left the scene on foot, was arrested by the services of BAC, without any injuries to police, a short time later, at 18:45 in the proximity of Avenue Leon-Blum, in the municipality of Pessac.

The prosecutor confirmed that the subject was heavily armed, carrying a 12-gauge shotgun, a gas pistol, and a cartridge belt. After a preliminary investigation, it turns out that Mounir B. is unfavorably known to police and judicial authorities.

O Muslims, We Will Have Our Revenge Against France!

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from F. Desouche:

After the murder of Samuel Paty, the cutthroat of Rambouillet wrote on Facebook: “O Muslims, now we will respond to the insults from France.” Two months later, he obtained his residence permit.

by Koba
April 30, 2021

Four months before the attack at Rambouillet, the Prefecture of Val-de-Marne had issued a residence permit to the murderer Jamel Gorchene. Before awarding such a title, the services of the prefecture verify that the person doesn’t constitute a “menace to public order”. In his case, there had been no alert. This in spite of the troubling messages that he had posted on Facebook.

How did the Prefecture of Val-de-Marne come to regularize an undocumented person who spread radical propaganda on social media?

Jamel Gorchene, this Tunisian national who stabbed a policewoman to death at the police headquarters of Rambouillet (Yvelines), had been issued a temporary residence permit on 28 December 2020, well after the first alarming messages had surfaced on his online profiles. Anti-Terrorist Prosecutor Jean-François Ricard also emphasized: Since the fall, the attacker showed on his public Facebook account, “an adherence to an ideology legitimizing violence against those who have offended the Prophet.”

These messages, visible to all — Marianne gained access without difficulty — seem to bear witness. Beginning in April, 2020, he only posted prayers and Koranic verses, while closely following the radical sermons of Sheikh Ali-al Qaradawi, a 72-year-old Qatari close to the Muslim Brotherhood. A few days after the beheading of Samuel Paty, he justified future violence on social media. “O Muslims, now we will respond to the insults from France and Macron against our Prophet Mohammad.”

Making Mozambique Safe for Democracy

The United States Government has taken note of the ongoing slaughter in the jihad that is currently being waged in northern Mozambique. It appears the East African country can expect a bout of nation-building, courtesy of Uncle Sam.

Many thanks to Gary Fouse for translating this article from the Portuguese-language Folha de Maputo:

Pentagon “determined” to support Mozambique in the fight against ISIS

March 30, 2021

The United States is “determined” to support the Mozambican government in combating the insurgents in Cabo Delgado Province, which are considered affiliates of the Islamic State/ISIS, the spokesman for the Pentagon, John Kirby, affirmed yesterday.

Maputo — The official of the Department of Defense in Washington reacted to the attack by the insurgents, who the US designates as ISIS-Mozambique (Also known as Ansar al-Sunna) on the town of Palma, which has caused dozens of deaths.

“We remain committed to working together with the government of Mozambique to counter terrorism and violent extremism and defeat ISIS,” affirmed Kirby in a statement condemning the attack.

The attacks “show a complete disregard for the welfare and security of the local population which has suffered tremendously at the terrorists’ brutal and indiscriminate tactics,” he said.

The Islamic State has already claimed responsibility for the attack and control of the town, near the Afungi Peninsula, the epicenter of the Mozambican natural gas operations.

Kirby did not explain in what form the Defense Department will be able to help in the specific case of Palma.

In mid-March, the North American Command for Africa (Africom) announced the start of a program of training of special Mozambican troops.

A few days earlier, the North American Department of State designated ISIS-Mozambique and its leader, Abu Yasir Hassan, as terrorists.

“Since October 2017, ISIS-Mozambique, led by Abu Yasir Hassan, has killed about 1,200 civilians,” said the statement by the State Department sent to Lusa [Portuguese news agency].

“It is estimated that more than 2,300 civilians, security force members, and suspected ISIS-Mozambique militants have been killed since the terrorist group began its violent extremist insurgency,” it said

ISIS-Mozambique, known locally as al-Shabaab, allegedly swore allegiance to ISIS as early as April of 2018 and was recognized by the organization as an affiliate in August of 2019.

“Islam is for War…”

On Friday a young “Briton” named Sahayb Abu was convicted of planning a terrorist attack in the UK. Michael Copeland has provided the context to show that Mr. Abu’s intended actions were mandated by Islamic law.

“Islam is for War…”

by Michael Copeland

“Islam is for war, hostage-taking, killing infidels, fighting tyranny, taking war booty, taking women of the enemy as concubines.”

So wrote 27-year-old Sahayb Abu online. “After being released from prison in March of last year, he frequently accessed IS propaganda and used various social media platforms to boast about his violent beliefs. Evidence gathered by police showed family members justifying crime against “kuffar” (unbelievers), for the purpose of jihad,” wrote Breitbart.

Sahayb has now been found guilty of planning a terrorist attack in Britain. His statement, quoted above, and the matter of “justifying crime against ‘kuffar’ (unbelievers) for the purpose of jihad”, deserve to be examined.

There is an unstated assumption, stemming from the standard dogma, that lies behind press reports such as this. This is that Islam is a religion of peace which has been “twisted” and “perverted” by people who have misunderstood it. The defendant’s statement is held out as a sort of proof of how wrong he is with his “violent beliefs”. It is this assumption, however, which is gravely in error. Each element of Sahayb’s statement is very much part of Islamic teaching, as can easily be shown.

War

Islam divides the world into two parts, Dar al Islam, the Realm of Islam under Islamic rule, and the rest of the world, not under Islamic rule, Dar al Harb, the Realm of War. “Britain has always been Dar al Harb”, Anjem Choudary told BBC Newsnight. In Dar al Harb every Muslim has the duty to perform jihad, “warfare to establish the religion”, which is a “communal obligation” (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o9.0, o9.1). So, indeed, “Islam is for war” in Britain. Jihad is taught at Al Azhar in Cairo as “a permanent war institution”.

Hostage-taking

The Koran (9:5) authorises hostage-taking of kafirs because they are kafirs: “Seize them, confine them,” it commands. The Koran — all of it — forms part of Islamic law. Denying any verse makes a person instantly no longer a Muslim, but an apostate who has to be killed (Manual o8.1). Hostages can be ransomed: Koran 47:4 specifies “either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them].”

Killing infidels

“Kill them wherever you find them”, commands Koran 2:191, and 9:5. Islam’s instructions are ruthless. There is no penalty in Islam for killing an infidel in jihad. Far from it: it earns good points towards Paradise. “The life of an unbeliever has no value,” says Omar Bakri.

Fighting tyranny

Muslims are commanded over and over again to “fight” kafirs, fight to kill. The word “tyranny” requires a special translation. Tyranny in Islam is any political system that stands in the way of Sharia, Islamic law. Western democracy, to Islam, is “tyranny”.

Taking war booty

A whole chapter of the Koran is entitled “Spoils of War”. Mohammed’s followers were not paid. Their motivation was a share of the booty from the raids that he made. The Islamic State explained, after the Brussels bombings of 2016,

“Allah also has made the blood of every kafir legal to spill, and …their wealth halal to take”.

Taking women of the enemy as concubines

Dabiq magazine (ISIS), confirmed in October 2014:

BBC Misinformation: Mohammed Film “Innocence of Muslims”

The following essay by Michael Copeland was originally published in shorter form by LibertyGB in 2012.

The film trailer, “Innocence of Muslims”, depicts episodes in the life of Mohammed. Blackened without cause, it was wrongfully blamed by Hillary Clinton for the unrelated jihad attack on the US Embassy in Benghazi that killed four Americans. The Obama administration, disgracing the First Amendment, publicly apologised for it in Pakistan. The film, albeit low-budget, is important for being a pioneer work.

BBC Misinformation: Mohammed Film “Innocence of Muslims”

By Michael Copeland

“Q&A: Anti-Islam film”

On their news website the BBC have an article headed “Q&A: Anti-Islam film”. This heading neatly furnishes the desired viewpoint for the readers, to colour their understanding, and probably remain in their memories. Typical of the BBC’s articles on Islam, the author is unidentified. Consequently there is no disclaimer limiting to the author the opinions expressed: they are presented as the BBC’s own.

The writer, obviously not one of the BBC’s usual named film critics, carefully provides a slant by announcing the film as “anti-Islam”. In the text it is further criticised as “satirising” and “mocking” Mohammed: the writer calls his depicted actions “insulting”. The film, Innocence of Muslims, is a very low budget trailer. It is a brief biographical documentary, portraying incidents from the life of Mohammed, as recorded in Islam’s source texts. The BBC, who produce both satires and documentaries, have the facilities to verify the accuracy of these pejorative critiques. Their editors failed. The film does not satirise, insult, or mock Mohammed’s actions: it is not anti-Islam.

The article says:

“The footage appears to depict Islam as a religion of violence and hate.”

Are the BBC being threatened? Can they not decide whether the film depicts Islam as a religion of violence and hate, or only “appears to” do so? The writer does not say the film “appears to” be anti-Islam, or “appears to” be satirising and mocking. Why the uncertainty? Of course, this is a false critique. The BBC’s unnamed writer is blowing smoke. This bluff is there to convey, falsely, an impression of injured surprise, so as to put people off from checking for themselves. It is there to affirm and shore up the carefully planted propaganda deception, “Islam is peace”, with which George W. Bush was duped, and, after him, Hillary Clinton and a line of British politicians. This lie and its companion, “perversion of Islam”, have run and run. The writer does not want them to be disturbed.

“Let’s be clear,” said Hillary Clinton, “Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism.” Hear Tony Blair: “…there is not a problem with Islam… there is no doubt about its true and peaceful nature… The doctrine and teachings of Islam are those of peace and harmony… It is a whole teaching dedicated to building peace in the world…” (quoted by Douglas Murray, The Strange Death of Europe). Of the terrorists’ motivation Blair says: “It’s an ideology based in a complete perversion of the proper faith of Islam… …perversion of Islam is the source of a lot of the problems in the Middle East”.

David Cameron repeated the same narrative, in his best emphatic air of authority: “They are killing and slaughtering thousands of people… They boast of their brutality. They claim to do this in the name of Islam. That is nonsense. Islam is a religion of peace. They are not Muslims. They are monsters.”

So, too, Theresa May, adopting her authoritative and confident tone, “It is an ideology that is a perversion of Islam… Islam is entirely compatible with British values and our national way of life.”

These are all falsehoods. They are what smooth-talking Islamic deceivers, like serial liar Tariq Ramadan, advisor to both Blair and Cameron, have been feeding to politicians under Islam’s doctrine of “Permissible Lying” (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, r8). Islam is all sweetness, you see: it could not possibly be a religion of violence and hate. This also complies with the tyrannical political correctness that prevents true descriptions from being expressed.

Islam authorises deception of kafirs. This has an Arabic name, taqiyya. “Using deception to mask intended goals” is instructed in the Muslim Brotherhood’s secret “Explanatory Memorandum” captured in a police raid. The deceived politicians’ rosy picture is completely at variance with Islam’s track record, its source texts, and its leaders’ announcements, all accessible on the internet. The BBC themselves were told directly by Anjem Choudary: “Islam does not mean ‘Peace’: it means ‘Submission’.” Apparently BBC editors know better.

The film Innocence of Muslims is accurate.

“Violence is the heart of Islam”, says Ayatollah Yazdi of Iran, advisor to Iran’s Ahmadinejad. “Battle,” — which is violent — “animosity, and hatred …are the basis of our religion”, explained Osama bin Laden in his open letter after 9/11. “Islam is a religion of blood for the infidels. Prophet had sword to kill people,” proclaimed Ayatollah Khomeini; “a religion of war and conflict”, said Caliph al Baghdadi; “a permanent war institution”, instructs Al Azhar in Cairo. “Islam is a religion of power, fighting, jihad, beheading and bloodshed”, says Imam Hussein Bin Mahmoud, a prominent writer. “Muslims… must have… enmity and hatred” of kafirs, instructs islamqa.com. “As a Muslim”, explained Anjem Choudary to the BBC’s own Newsnight, “I must have hatred for everything that is non-Islam”. Don’t the BBC’s editors listen?

The Koran, which anyone can consult online, is the authority. The “excellent pattern” praised in Koran 60:4 is: “between us and you enmity and hatred forever…”. Koran 9.5, a late verse which overrides — “abrogates” — all peaceful verses elsewhere, because they are earlier, says: “Kill the idolaters wherever you find them…”. Christians count as idolaters because Islam teaches, erroneously, that they worship the cross. There are many, many more verses which repeat these themes. The verses are — all of them — part of Islamic law, with the death penalty for denying even one (Manual of Islamic Law, Reliance of the Traveller, o8.7(7)). Can the BBC’s editors not read them? Do they patronisingly assume that their viewers cannot read them?

Egyptian Court Favors Islamists: Al Sisi’s Statement to Macron Justifies Verdict

Below is the latest report by Ashraf Ramelah on the plight of Egyptian Copts.

Egyptian court favors Islamists: Al Sisi’s statement to Macron justifies verdict

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

Nearly five years ago now, I wrote about a courageous Coptic Christian woman and a brave Coptic Bishop who stood with her and her son in the “Bedouin arbitration” court after she fell victim to a heinous crime.

As justice is never served through the “Bedouin” process of arbitration, shortly thereafter the woman and her son brought a civil lawsuit against the perpetrators in the state court. This past December 2020, her case was lost in favor of Islamists. The religious deep state found the offenders innocent, and the court set them free.

The handing down of the acquittal judgment was the final act in the prolonged Al Karm village drama and eradicated any hope of healing sectarian differences among Egyptians. The verdict showed the decadence and indecency inhabiting Egyptian society. In conjunction with an unrelated statement made by Egypt’s president earlier the same month, this case revealed Egypt’s ugly truth.

It began with collective punishment and expiation in the streets

Al Karm is a small, miserable village in the Al Minya Governorate, which is one of the poorest governorates in Egypt. In Al Karm village, as in other parts of the country, Muslims and Christians live as neighbors. The common denominator of its villagers is simplicity of life permeated with poverty and ignorance. Such conditions aid in the diffusion of Salafi fundamentalists and Muslim Brotherhood influencers that are able to control behavior and handle religious matters.

In July 2016, a rumor started everything. It circulated that a relationship existed between a Christian man and Muslim woman — unacceptable to the Muslim community. Seeking reparations, a religious mob struck back.

After the targeted man was seized by the radicals and arrested by the police, his mother, a woman in her 70s, was stripped naked, dragged from her home and paraded through the village streets. As the mother of a Coptic man who had been convicted in the court of public opinion for a religious crime, she paid a dear price.

During this humiliating and brutal exercise the mob screamed “Allahu Akhbar,” signaling great satisfaction as if winning an Islamic invasion (Gazwa). State authorities and Al Azhar Sunni Institute both turned a blind eye. There were no statements of condemnation coming from either direction.

“Peace and tolerance” in the international media

Despite the benign image of Islam portrayed by Al Azhar propaganda around the world, local mosques in Egypt steadfastly continue to spew “hate speech” embedded in prayers against Christians and Jews through open-air mics blasting the streets during weekly Friday services.

December court ruling and Al Sisi’s morality lesson to France that same month

During their press conference in France on Dec 6, 2020, the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al Sisi offered a morality lesson to President Emmanuel Macron when a journalist asked each of them for his vision concerning religion and social issues. Macron responded:

“We consider the human value to be the most important of all … Any person has the right to choose the religion he wants to believe in … The religious issue should not be related to the political issue.”

Al Sisi countered Macron by stating that:

The Facebook Spring in Egypt

Ashraf Ramelah sends a new report on the persecution of Copts and the suppression of free speech in Egypt.

Social media used to incite sectarian strife against Coptic Christians in Egypt

by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah

The most recent escalation of violence against Egyptian Copts living in Egypt occurred last month (November 2020) and was sparked by Facebook posts prompting Muslim radicals to retaliate for religious comments. After reading Christian “insults” Muslim goons set out to attack Coptic villages.

Christian Copts clarifying points on social media have been victims of sectarian hunts and ambushes by ruffians looking for a trigger to pull. Counterfeit pages that scammers produce bait Christians into commenting and then charge them with insulting Islam.

Copts are often tricked into responses by Islamists who have befriended them with hidden identities — sometimes showing a Christian cross to trick the page owner. Islamists harass and instigate in a scheme to entrap. Those are only the thugs at work. Additionally, the state’s “internet police” spy on Christian Facebook pages to target anti-Islam sentiments.

In other cases, Islamic hackers steal the page owner’s identity and make incendiary statements to frame a Facebook page owner and then track the Christian victim to his home. One such incident led to the village of Al Barsha in part of Al Minya Governorate (300 km south of Cairo).

It did not matter to Islam’s vigilantes that official sources confirmed the hacking of the Al Barsha villager’s Facebook account. Nor did it matter that the Al Barsha Christian did not make the remarks. Islamists set out to harm this Coptic family and displace them from their home just the same.

Molotov cocktails were thrown, the church was targeted as well, and the security police came in to prevent further damage.

Bedouin courts handle tech platform “offenses”

Conflicts instigated and executed by Muslim fundamentalists end up in the customary reconciliation sessions known as Bedouin courts. The Christian is always forced to plead guilty when innocent and pay dearly by handing over his home, farm or business to the criminals. The mandatory “peace” agreement of these arbitration sessions always sets the Islamic criminal free and punishes the innocent Christian family. This is precisely the purpose of the arbitration court.

Egypt’s Interior Ministry blames hostile countries; acknowledges Copts as targets

Last year the Egyptian Interior Ministry warned that thousands of Egyptian Facebook accounts were fakes. It added that “great numbers of these fake pages are outside the country and sponsored, funded and managed by countries that are hostile to Egypt.” The Interior Minister’s office went on to say that “such pages are used to spread rumors aiming to generate unrest by Muslim Brotherhood terrorist groups inciting acts of sabotage and violence and spreading chaos in the country, and especially against Copts.”

According to these statements, the stalking and scamming is generated by outside enemies and followed through by inside terror elements. All of it is religious warfare. Meanwhile, what are religious leaders of Al Azhar Institute saying or doing? Islamic censorship and terrorizing due to religious discrimination on social media platforms will not stop unless leaders show the way. The esteemed center of Sunni Islamic scholarship alone holds the power of interpretation of Quranic teachings. Supremacy teachings unfortunately do not support or aid followers to achieve peace and harmony with fellow citizens.

Assembly With Menaces

The article below by Michael Copeland was originally published at Liberty GB in February, 2015. It refers to demonstrations after the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris, the fifth anniversary of which is coming up on January 7.

Assembly With Menaces

by Michael Copeland

A large number of Muslims gathered outside the gates of Downing Street on Sunday February 8, 2015, in a gender-segregated “show of strength”, blocking half of Whitehall for rather too long — some three hours. This was a month after the mass murder by Muslims in Paris of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and of the Jews in the Kosher Hypermarket, and not long after the release of the film of the deliberate burning alive by the Islamic State of a Jordanian pilot, confined in a cage.

Had they come to express sympathy for the victims? Condolences for the next of kin? Solidarity with free speech? Disgust at the barbaric burning? No. Remember, like all similar Muslim events, this event was not in the least spontaneous: this was “organised”, that is, instructed, in the mosques, and at the behest of the Muslim Action Forum. They had come to make an assembly with menaces.

The Muslim Action Forum is lying

The Muslim Action Forum made an announcement, but they were lying. Lying, however, is not only permitted under Islamic law when it is done to non-Muslims in the cause of Islam, it is in some circumstances obligatory. It has an Arabic name: taqiyya. The Muslim Action Forum makes claims that are supposed to be so sweet and reasonable. They are nothing of the sort.

Incitement, hatred and provocation

“We need to move from actions of incitement, hatred and provocation”, say the Muslim Action Forum. Oh yes? Who are “we”? Muslims? How can that be? Islam’s own texts repeatedly include incitement, instruct hatred and commend it, and express provocation.

Incitement


“Kill unbelievers wherever you find them,” incites verse 5 of Koran chapter — “sura” — 9, the Sura At Tawba. This is the one cited by the killer of Lee Rigby. It overrides and “abrogates” all the verses of peace and forgiveness elsewhere in the Koran, because it is later in time sequence. This is the effect of Islam’s doctrine of Abrogation. The doctrine, like the Koran, is part of Islamic Law. The teachings of the Koran are “true, …universal and trans-time,” explains Ahmed Saad, of North London Central Mosque. That verse is straightforward and legally binding incitement.

Jesus Was Boring

Jesus Was Boring

by Michael Copeland

Quite frankly, to an adventure-seeker,
Jesus was boring.
Look at the things he did NOT do.
After all, he did not:
have a favourite sword called “Neck-Cleaver”,
make dawn raids on unsuspecting villages,
take prisoners,
demand ransom money,
take booty,
behead anyone, let alone 600 in a day,
kill anyone, or take part in stoning people,
have a fire lit on a captive’s chest
to make him say where the money was,
have men’s feet and hands cut off,
their eyes put out with hot nails and leave
them to die on hot desert rocks without water,
order the stoning of an adulterous woman,
authorise his followers to kill critics,
authorise his followers to lie and deceive,
order the house-burning of absent
assembly attendees with them inside,
command his followers to kill
members of other religions,
own black slaves, and trade them,
take girls captive as sex slaves,
consummate marriage with a nine-year-old,
have eleven wives,
