Iran has built a 27-meter-long missile, capable of delivering a warhead “far beyond Europe,” and placed it on a launch pad at a site close to Tehran, an Israeli television report said Wednesday, showing what it said were the first satellite images of the missile ever seen in the West.
In September, Herve Gourdel, a 55-year-old French mountaineer, was killed by the jihadist group Jund al-Khilafa (The Caliphate Soldiers) after issuing a 24-hour ultimatum for France to cease its strikes on the group's positions in Iraq.
The hiker arrived in Algeria on Saturday 20 September and was abducted the following day while trekking in the heart of the Djurdjura National Park.
According to the sources, the Algerian army had dispatched 3,000 troops to find Gourdel's body in the northern town of Akbil where his body was eventually found without the head.
There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III.
Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated," reports the Daily Mail.
"This morning, gas companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply. Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of a struggle over energy that threatens Europe as winter sets in."
Imagine an audio recording of the president calling his son and telling him to get rid of all the cash he keeps at home; and his son, after trying for several hours, telling him there are still millions left. For Erdogan, his election victories meant
Islam is the largest religion on earth, based on population. With just over 1.2 BILLION adherents to the Muslim faith, and with so many of those threatening violence against the West, I decided to try to find out just how many Muslims are truly peaceful, how many want me dead, and how many just want to be left out of the discussion.
What I found was there there are anywhere from 140 MILLION to 200 MILLION Islamic radical males between the ages of 15 and 35 who are sworn to kill me, a white Christian American, should they ever encounter me.
Let me say that again. Up to 200 MILLION Muslims who would kill me on sight. Sure, it's a minority of the total Muslim population, so the majority of Muslims are probably good, peaceful people who just want to be left alone, but the number of extremists who want me dead is anywhere from 4% to 17% of their total population. That's a pretty big minority.
And the number of Muslims who want me dead outnumber the population of the United States east of the Mississippi.
Daniel Pipes writes:
I am often asked to guess as to how many Muslims are jihadists. The easiest answer is: enough to commit the terrorist acts detailed in this 1,000-page-long Islamic Terror Timeline. But if you are looking for a more analytical response, I think the math goes something like this: There are between 1.2 and 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. Half are women. While a substantial percentage of Islamic women support jihad, less than one in fifty Islamic terrorist acts is actually perpetrated by a female. That leaves us with a maximum pool of jihadists that is just over 50% of the total population. The overwhelming preponderance of terrorist acts are conducted by young Muslim men 15 to 30 years old. This age bracket covers about half of the male population of the Islamic world, leaving us with a potential jihad pool of 25% of all Muslims - approximately 300 million people. The most logical way to determine the percentage of Muslims who are salafi/fundamentalists - a precondition to jihad - is to consider the most recent elections in Islamic countries. For example, the fundamentalist Islamic group Hamas received 65% of the popular vote in "Palestine." The somewhat secular Fatah, at least by comparison to Hamas, won only 30% of the votes.
While he was not popularly elected, Turkey's president, Ahmet Necdet Sezar, is a fundamentalist Muslim. Turkey's parliament, which selected him by a 70% majority, is formed as a result of a popular mandate and it is predominately comprised of fundamentalist Muslims. Turkey's Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is the nation's most popular leader. He is a convicted felon who believes: "Mosques are our barracks, domes are our helmets, minarets our bayonets, and believers our soldiers." He won a landslide victory in 2002 - and Turkey is considered to be the most moderate Islamic state. The newly elected fundamentalist Islamic nutcase ruling Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, earned 62% of the popular vote. The most moderate Islamic challenger garnered less than twenty percent support. The notion that the majority of Iranians are hostile to the Shia mullahs, and are poised for a revolution, is a myth In Lebanon, politicians got all excited when 50,000 people marched in support of democracy. The following week when 500,000 people protested in support of Islam/Submission, the percentage of fundamentalist Muslims became clear. Fundamentalist Islamic candidates in the most recent Iraqi elections, those individuals who belonged to clerical parties like the Islamic Revolution in Iraq founded by Grand Ayatollah al-Sistani, won 65% of the seats in the new parliament. While opinion surveys can be suspect, and are often tainted by the manner in which a question is phrased, there are two that are worth mentioning. Opinion polls taken by the British Government reveal that 70% of Iraqis think killing Americans is justified, something that is impossible to justify outside the conditioning of fundamentalist Islam. The rising death toll of American troops and stunning escalation in terror in Iraq give credence to those numbers. Polls taken in Pakistan, where bin Laden is being harbored, reveal that 70% of Pakistanis view the world's most famous Islamic terrorist very favorably. In fact, Osama has become the most popular name for boys in the region. Therefore, based upon the most objective data available to us, at least 60% of all Muslims have the potential to be jihadists by way of their fundamentalist voting patterns. That is to say, Islam has grown substantially closer to its salafi, and thus terrorist, roots over the past decade. It is safe to say that 750 million Muslims are fundamentalists trying to follow Allah's orders and Muhammad's example. And as fundamentalists, they are potential jihadists. If the 60% response levels derived from polling data is an accurate reflection of the current state of Islam, then sex and age criteria further reduce Islamic terrorist candidates down to a maximum of one in every seven Muslims - 25% of 60%. That means that no more than 15% of the total Islamic population of 1.2 to 1.5 billion people has the potential to be a terrorist should the opportunity arise. That equates to a minimum of 180 million potential jihadists and a maximum of 225 million. But when it comes to actual jihadists, to those who have or will commit an act of terrorism in Allah's name, my research suggests that they represent no more than one in one hundred of the 180 million young fundamentalist Muslim men prepared mentally, morally, and spiritually to be terrorists. That means that there are 1.8 million actual Islamic jihadists on the planet today - a number which could jump one hundred fold almost instantaneously should the opportunity arise.
Middle East political commentator Daniel Pipes says that there are no less than 130 million Islamic jihadists but I don't believe that is possible because there haven't been sufficient jihadist attacks over the past 20 years for that many Muslims to be engaged in the business of killing people for Allah. The potential pool of jihadists, however, is reasonably close to Pipes' estimate. Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch is on another planet with his estimate of as many as 650 million jihadists - one in every two Muslims. Before you get a warm and cozy feeling, thinking that only 60% of Muslims are sufficiently indoctrinated in fundamentalist Islam to be a terrorist should the opportunity arrise, and that only 25% of those Muslims are the appropriate age and sex to actually engage in jihad, let's consider some recent historical events. In 1917, less than 3% of Russians were Communists. Yet since that 3% was sufficiently corrupted by an immoral and ruthless religion (Socialist Secular Humanism), they quickly came to oppress the entire nation - murdering 30 million Russians in the process. In 1924, less than 3% of Germans were Nazis. And yet since that 3% was sufficiently corrupted by Hitler's "People's Religion" as it was immorally and ruthlessly laid out in Mein Kampf, that 3% came to oppress the entire nation and led the world into a war that killed 50 million people. Continue Reading: Folks, this isn't a joke. We are letting Islamic radicals infiltrate the United States and other Western nations at a rate of over 2,000 per day! Might I remind you that it only took 20 hijackers to pull off the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Perhaps the people in Europe calling for the outlawing of Islam have a point. A darn good one.
But don't take it from me, do your own research. Islam is at war with us and we are busy calling them a peaceful religion.
North Korea and Paris. Newsrooms and Film Studios. Some of us saw this trend developing for a long time. Others were blindsided by it. On one side, we have thugs with a very self-serving view of the world, and their role in it.
That’s more than what old numb-nuts has done. This should be good. Hacker group Anonymous have released a video and a statement via Twitter condemning the attacks on Charlie Hebdo, in which 12 people, including eight journalists, were murdered.
Up to 17 people have been injured in a stabbing attack on the No. 40 Dan bus in Tel Aviv. Four victims are in the hospital in serious condition, according to reports. The suspected attacker, a 23-year-old Palestinian Muslim from Tulkarem, was shot and is in custody.
After attacking passengers on the bus, the terrorist fled on foot, and tried to stab more people about a kilometer away, according to Magen David Adom Medical Director Dr. Rafi Satrugo.
So lets see why millions of moderate Muslims just took to the streets all over the Muslim world. As we examine all these rallies we can see that they are not at all ticked off over the killing of journalists in France, Oh no. The media says it is over the cartoons which Hebdo drew making fun of their beloved prophet, yet it mattered nothing that they were killed for some silly cartoons. But there is more. The messages they give are simple to the point: the army of Muhammad is coming for you, the Christians, we want to reconquer Jerusalem, death to Israel, death to the Jews and we want a Muslim Caliphate.
Police recovered several blood-stained implements near Ms el Shoureifi's body, including an electric drill, two metal bars, two screwdrivers and a wooden shelf. A screwdriver had also been driven into the 28-year-old victim's eye socket penetrating her brain.
Prosecutors claimed that following the attack, Manaa bound his wife's legs with packing tape before bundling her body into a cupboard.
'He said he hit Sara on the head and shoulders with the shelf and she became a little tired. He offered to take her to hospital or call 999 but she told him it would not be necessary. He went upstairs but when he came back down she was lying on the floor. There was a screwdriver sticking out of her left eye.'
A post mortem counted 270 injuries on Ms el Shoureifi's body, including a large number of puncture wounds while clumps of her hair had been torn out.
Her scalp was hanging off her head and she had been kicked and stamped upon as well as a knife being used on her neck.
One of the reasons I avoid attending Friday congregations at mosques is a specific ritual supplication uttered by Imams at many mosques in Canada and around the world, just prior to our formal Friday community prayer, the Juma'a. In the supplication,
Jack Hansen's insight:
Mu'slims pray to destroy and kill the host who welcomes them with open arms. What is sacred about this? Where are the holy men in this action? Those who partake in this are minions of evil.
I bet the arsonists were Amish pyromaniacs. Because God knows Islam is as innocent as a kitty cat. The office of a German newspaper that printed Charlie Hebdo cartoons was the target of an arson attack early this morning.
