Jihad-martyrdom suicide bomber murders nine people who didn’t burn the Qur’an

Not that murdering those who did burn the Qur’an would be justified. But to murder people who had nothing to do with it throws into sharp relief how insane this all is — and yet no Western leader dares stand up and say so. “U.S. cites ‘heightened threat'; 9 killed in Afghan airport bomb,” by Hamid Shalizi and Amie Ferris-Rotman for Reuters, February 27:

KABUL (Reuters) – A suicide car bomber killed nine people in an attack on a military airport in eastern Afghanistan on Monday, officials said, the latest bloodshed since copies of the Koran were burned at a NATO base last week.

There was no official indication the explosion at the gates of Jalalabad airport was linked to the deadly protests, but the Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack as “revenge” for the Koran burnings.

Nineteen Afghan civilians and law enforcement officers and four NATO soldiers were wounded in the blast, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Nangarhar province, of which Jalalabad is the capital, said.

Jalalabad airport is almost exclusively used by NATO and the U.S. military….

Riots have raged across Afghanistan over the past week despite widespread apologies from U.S. leaders, including President Barack Obama and military commanders.

Or maybe because of them.

Seven U.S. military trainers were wounded on Sunday when a grenade was thrown at their base in Afghanistan’s north.

Chants of “Death to America!” have come to characterize the protests and some demonstrators have hoisted the white Taliban flag.

With few signs of the crisis abating, the U.S. ambassador said the United States should resist the urge to pull troops out of Afghanistan ahead of schedule.

“Tensions are running very high here. I think we need to let things calm down, return to a more normal atmosphere, and then get on with business,” Ambassador Ryan Crocker told CNN.

“This is not the time to decide that we are done here. We have got to redouble our efforts. We’ve got to create a situation that al Qaeda is not coming back,” he said.

Under an international agreement, foreign combat forces are due to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2014, a process which is already under way.

WIDESPREAD ANGER

The groundswell of anger over the burning of the Koran, which Muslims revere as the literal word of God, has highlighted the challenges ahead as Western forces try to quell violence and bring about some form of reconciliation with the Taliban.

The violence has killed more than 30 people and wounded at least 200, including two U.S. troops shot dead by an Afghan soldier who joined rallies in the east. Two U.S. officers were also shot at close range inside the Interior Ministry.

In an interview from Rabat, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the violence was “out of hand and it needs to stop”.

The shooting of two U.S. officers deep inside the heavily fortified Interior Ministry on Saturday has intensified the sense of unease among Westerners and deepened the divide with their Afghan counterparts….

No kidding, really?

The high-level killings prompted NATO, Britain, Germany and Canada to withdraw their staff from Afghan ministries.

The Taliban also took responsibility for the Interior Ministry attack, although the Islamist group often exaggerates claims involving attacks against Western forces.

On Sunday, the ministry said one of its employees was a suspect in the shooting of the two U.S. officers. Afghan security sources also identified a 25-year-old police intelligence officer as a suspect.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai has repeatedly urged calm and restraint, although he also maintains that those who burned the Korans must be prosecuted….

No “ally” of the U.S. is more richly deserving of being left to his own devices than the oleaginous, duplicitous and arrogant Karzai.

    People who fully embrace the demon inspired “religion” of Islam become demon inspired themselves and turn to and kill one another in a attempt to inpress Allah. They think that being willing and able to kill for Allah, they should be granted entrance into the great brothel in the sky!
    This why Islam can never be at peace with itself.

    Sultan Knish posted a pointed essay, Islam Uber Alles

    The first law of human affairs is force. Before all other laws, the ballot box and appeals to reason is that primal law that enforces submission through violence. Islam is a religion built on that first law, forcing everyone to choose whether they will be the oppressors or the oppressed, whether they will be a Muslim or a Dhimmi.
    The organizing force of Islam can be seen in urban gangs which react in much the same way to being ‘disrespected’. When your religion is little more than an entitlement to be a thug, to elevate your way of life over that of everyone else, violent outrage over even the most minute sign of disrespect is to be expected. And when your beliefs are little more than an excuse to hate, rioting over a slight is the sacrament of your faith.
    Islam did not expand through the persuasiveness of its illiterate child abusing founder, at least not beyond the initial persuasion that allowed him to gather bandit troops to raid, murder and enslave the multicultural peoples of the desert until there was nothing left but Muslims and their slaves. It expanded by force and it has gone on expanding by force. Faced with advanced civilizations, it has reacted with the violent petulant fury that is its spiritual heritage.
    The first law is the only true law of Islam. That is the law being practiced by the Afghan rioters and murderers outraged over the burnings of already defaced Korans, as their counterparts have gone on similar rampages over cartoons of Mohammed, the Satanic Verses, Facebook postings and anything else which triggered their rage. This violence has the same goal of all Islamic terror, to maintain the privileged status of Muslims and enforce the submission of non-Muslims.
    There is nothing that serves the first law so well as opponents who compromise or offer gestures of appeasement. Despite their numerical advantages, the society of the sword is too backward and lacking in organizational and technological skills to win a direct confrontation. It is only capable of treachery, of exploiting the humanitarian weaknesses of its enemies, of dressing up as dead men and chanting about their utter disregard for human life, of hiding among civilians, attacking in the dark and running to celebrate even the slightest victory as proof of Allah’s endorsement of their cause. And none of this would do them the least bit of good if they faced civilizations willing to slap them down.

    Let’s write to Congress (www.congress.org):

    Dear Representative:

    Qur’ans were used in Afghanistan as a means of communications by the enemy combatants. Those ciphers/communiques were intercepted, confiscated, and destroyed so the enemy combatants could never have access to them. But, because Sharia law forbids the burning of Qur’ans, our President is apologizing and promising to follow Sharia law instead of U.S. law. The same tactic is used when enemy combatants hold up in mosques, and are assured of a safe place from which to shoot at U.S. troops. The same tactic is used when human shields are used and killed, and the responsibility is placed on U.S. troops instead of those who use human shields and the U.S. pays blood money (prescribed by Sharia law) to the families of human shields, accomplices, and jihadists themselves. Our troops were used like this for ten years with their hands tied and the enemy combatants protected by Sharia law. This weakening and killing off of our troops was only used to procure Islamic democracies with Islamic Constitutions enforced by Sharia law. Now, President Obama has sent our troops to Africa to fight against the only opposition force to the genocidal jihad conquering the oil-rich countries of Africa. This outrageous and seditious waste of the lives and health of U.S. troops must stop.

    As a member of the United States Congress, I am asking and expecting you to put an end to enforcement of Sharia law by U.S. troops, to redefine the parameters when fighting against Islamic enemy combatants, to place the responsibility for using human shields, mosques, and Qur’ans squarely on the shoulders of those who use them, and to prohibit and forbid U.S. troops from being subjected to Sharia law, officially or unofficially. Let U.S. troops only be used to support the U.S. Constitution, let them only answerable to U.S. law, and only deployed when the safety of U.S. citizens is in eminent jeopardy. Station U.S. troops at U.S. borders and stop them from being used as pawns in the Muslim Brotherhood’s global jihad.

    The little Iranian President and the entire “Muslim world” is acting as if the whole world has been conquered for Islam and that all non-Muslims are under dhimmitude. They are acting as if any defiance by non-Muslim (like criticizing Islam, burning Qur’ans, etc.) means any non-Muslims can be punished, abused, even murdered because the dhimmitude contract (of “protection”) has been broken. It is a plan to take the world hostage, and no one should in any way be accepting of that scenario!

    Thanks for linking that.

    I have made a copy and tucked it away in my ‘religion of perpetual outrage’ e-clippings file.

    A point to reflect upon: Armenian American investigative journalist ‘John Roy Carlson’, who exposed Nazi networks in the USA in ‘Under cover’ and later on did the same to the communist networks in ‘The Plotters’, *also* turned his attention to the Jihad against the Jews, and the Ikhwan or Muslim Brotherhood.

    In his book ‘Cairo to Damascus’ which relates his adventures gathering information among – and about – the raving-mad Mohammedan jihadis who were (in 1948) attempting genocidal jihad against the newborn Jewish state of Israel, he has a whole chapter on the Ikhwan.

    By posing as an Islamophile Nazi-loving American, he gained access even to the point of scoring an interview with Hassan Al-Banna (grandfather of Tariq Ramadan).

    In ‘Cairo to Damascus’ (1951) there are two key chapters dealing with Islam and Jihad: chapter IV, ‘The Moslem (Black) Brotherhood, and chapter VI, ‘World of the Koran: Islam Ueber Alles”.

    Excellent stuff from Sultan Knish, WhupTdue”thanks for posting it.

    From the article above:

    Afghan President Hamid Karzai has repeatedly urged calm and restraint, although he also maintains that those who burned the Korans must be prosecuted….
    ………………………….

    Can you imagine civilized Americans being handed over to a kangaroo court run by these homicidal barbarians? Yet according to Karzai that is *exactly( what NATO is considering.

    Now, Karzai is hardly to be considered a reliable source, but I haven’t seen any firm denials from NATO, either…
