Bahrain: Bomb factory discovered in mosque

Calm down, you greasy Islamophobe. Your church has a bomb-making factory on the premises, doesn’t it?

In recent years we have seen mosques used to preach hatred; to spread exhortations to terrorist activity; to house a bomb factory; to store weapons; to disseminate messages from bin Laden; to demand (in the U.S.) that non-Muslims conform to Islamic dietary restrictions; to fire on American troops; to fire upon Indian troops; to train jihadists; and more.

“Bahrain says it uncovered weapons cache inside unlicensed mosque,” from Al Arabiya, October 24 (thanks to 538):

Police in Bahrain said on Wednesday they uncovered a weapons cache inside an unlicensed mosque where locally-made bombs were being produced.

Authorities said they seized electric detonators, stopwatches and other materials used to make bombs.

The cache was uncovered in the area of Abou Baham, a scene of violence attributed by official media to Shiite hardliners….

    The offense was that it was an unlicensed mosque. So making bombs there was illegal — they didn’t have a license. Rather like selling booze in the U.S.: perfectly legal as long as one has a license.

    I once read in an article from a Nigerian online newspaper that the police had discovered a bomb-making factory hidden away and made to look like a mosque. What they didn’t mention of course was that it in all probability was a mosque, made into a bomb-making factory.
    The fun we have!

    My church IS a “SPIRITUAL BOMB” making factory that is more POWERFUL than any bomb the world can make …

    ”Police in Bahrain said on Wednesday they uncovered a weapons cache inside an **unlicensed mosque** ( my emphasis, Jan) where locally-made bombs were being produced”

    So presumably it would have been OK if the mosque had been *licensed* ?

    These people are sick beyond belief.

    There is some question as to whether a licensed mosque would be making bombs in Bahrain.

    The fact is, Bahrain is ruled by a king, who supersedes the authority of the parliament. As a result of the non-democracy in Bahrain, a Muslim-majority country, women go unveiled, Christians are unmolested, and apostates are left alone. The state has a very strong security apparatus. People who present a threat to the security of Bahrain, e.g. Islamists, are uncovered by the police and tossed into prison or worse with nary a thought to their “human rights”.

    This is the only way a Muslim country can approach any degree of security or safety, especially for non-Muslims: rule by a non-elected, authoritarian king or dictator who takes any disruption of the safety of the country as a personal affront and reacts accordingly.

    The reason mosques in Bahrain are licensed are the reason you would license mosques: to keep an eye on them, and make sure they are nice and tame. Every licensed mosque is probably supported by the government. Incidentally, the government of Bahrain recently contributed the land for the construction of a Catholic church.

    The main reason a mosque would be unlicensed in Bahrain is that they wish to pursue those aspects of Islam that the government wishes to suppress: violent domination of women, the killing of apostates and infidels, and the imposition of sharia law.

    The biggest danger Bahrain faces in the future is the dim-witted pressure by the US and other clueless countries to continue with “democratic” reforms, and tolerance of those Islamists who choose non-violence as a tactical maneuver.

    Lets wake up to the facts of reality. Which is that all this violence and killing is part of the militant jihadism of Islam. This is real Islam and not some kind of ihjacked or warped form of Islam but real no-watered down hard core Islam itself. After all, the Quran does teach in 9:112 “The believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and be killed. ” Likewise in 8:39 it also teaches “Fight them untill all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.” These are just two of the many verses in the Quran that teach violence, fighting and killing. All this does bring to mind the wisdom of the words of Thomas Paine from his book THE AGE OF REASON which reads “Any system of religion that has anythng in it that shocks themind of a child, cannot be a true system.”

  9. says

    Winston Churchill called Islam “the religion of blood and war”.

    Jacques Ellul, writing about Jihad in the foreword he wrote for Bat Yeor’s “The Decline of Eastern Christianity Under Islam”, said, “there is so much talk nowadays of the tolerance and fundamental pacifism [sic: a less awkward Englishing of Ellul’s French would probably be ‘peacefulness’ – dda] of Islam that it is necessary to recall its nature, which is fundamentally warlike!”

    There have been war-gods and religions of war aplenty, in human history.

    Islam is one of them. The others are extinct; Islam, the most recently invented, is still around.

    Because Islam is a religion of war (and indeed, a human sacrifice cult) because allah is a god of war, because in Islam war is sacralised, then of course mosques *are* forts, barracks, arsenals, magazines, places for creating weapons and ordnance, as well as torture-chambers, prisons, safe-houses for spies and centres for war propaganda and military recruitment. Or one could compare them to the HQ of groups such as the Mafia, the Triads, the KKK, a neonazi group. Or one could liken them to a Thuggee temple (that being a blend of crime syndicate and human sacrifice cult, quite possibly even invented under the influence of Islam, just as the Mafia seems to have been).

    There are many, many instances – both within the West, within the wider non-Muslim world, and (as here) from within the Muslim world – of mosques being Up To No Good; of the storing of weapons (and of drugs and contraband and false documents), the fomenting of jihad including the incitement of local riots and pogroms (the recent Mohammedan riot in central Sydney was at least partly organised from within a mosque or mosques), the concealment of criminals, the forging of documents, etc etc and so forth.

    And, to put it bluntly, a lot of them **look** like forts, and are even located precisely where one would place a military installation. (Over at the New English Review, Esmerelda Weatherwax has reconned the site of a proposed mega-mosque; she observes that it is a fortress.

    The West Ham Mega-Mosque – Latest Plans Submitted

    “The West Ham site is bounded by the Channelsea River to the east, the District Line to the south and the Jubilee Line to the west. It too [like another mosque she discusses earlier in the article – dda] could be easily cut off and defended. Basically it is a fortress.”

    Many reports on mosques that have been incontrovertibly exposed as dangerous can be found in the jihadwatch archives.

    It might be advisable to go through and find a dozen or so of the most egregious examples, focusing particularly on cases occurring within non-Muslim lands, and create a summary list, with references; add a suitable covering letter, and send it to the NYPD and other frontline law enforcement bodies, both within the USA and elsewhere.

    Let our cops know: you **have** to watch the mosque.

    You do not have to watch a church, or a synagogue, or a temple; but you *must* watch a mosque.

    So long as there are mosques within the non-Muslim world, our police and intelligence agencies must watch them.

    And, preferably, **bug** them.

    And, further, occasionally conduct surprise searches.

    I don’t think any mosque can be assumed to be non-dangerous…any more than we would assume a ‘crack house’ or a bikies’ den or the hangout of a crime boss to be non-dangerous.

    “The reason mosques in Bahrain are licensed are the reason you would license mosques: to keep an eye on them, and make sure they are nice and tame. ”

    That program might make sense if the subpopulation of Muslims, and their propensity to further the Jihad through both stealth and violence (each symbiotically related to the other), could be reasonably foreseen to remain static.

    But a mountain of evidence indicates that Muslims and their fanaticism are metastatic.

    So, the next logical step is not to “keep an eye” on this metastasizing deadly problem, but to eject it. Currently, our sociopolitical cultures cannot even think such a thought (an indication of just how unthinkable this is generally, is the apparent fact that among a majority of people even in the small subset of our society known as the Counter-Jihad movement, whenever the proposal is brought up even for intellectual consideration, remonstrate and protest as though someone forced them to wear a scratchy wool straitjacket or something).

  12. says

    P.S.:

    “Currently, our sociopolitical cultures cannot even think such a thought… [i.e., of total deportation of Muslims]”

    — but that neither means it should not be seriously considered and worked toward as a goal; nor that the West will not eventually, much too tardily to save perhaps a million or more of our lives, come around to it.

    LemonLime,

    Remember, I’m talking from the perspective of a majority-Muslim country. Let the Muslims have the Muslim countries. My point was that the appropriate form of government for Muslim countries is distinctly non-democratic. They are relatively civilized as long as they are under the heel of a self-interested, strong, totalitarian ruler. The “unlicensed” mosque was simply trying to assert its Islamic identity. But, no ruler worthy of the name would permit that.

    It’s a whole different ballgame when you talk about Muslims in a non-Muslim country. My strongest wish is that the US totally cut off any further Muslim immigration, and live with the Muslims who are already US citizens.
