#MyJihad in France: Nine Muslims convicted of collecting funds for Uzbek group dedicated to getting the kids to school

That’s what Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ahmed Rehab says jihad is, after all: “Jihad for us is daily struggle, it is going to school, whatever it is people go through.” Yet somehow this “Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan” got the crazy and totally unfounded notion that jihad had something to do with al-Qaeda. They must have gotten hold of some of my books.

“France: 9 Convicted for Link to Uzbek Terror Group,” from the Associated Press, January 8 (thanks to Lookmann):

PARIS (AP) “” A Paris court has convicted nine people for links to a militant group that the U.N. Security Council has described as an al-Qaida affiliate.

The trial that began last month came four years after police in France, Germany and the Netherlands rounded up the suspects.

The defendants convicted in connection with collecting funds for the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which the U.N. listed as an al-Qaida affiliate weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Defense lawyers said the funds were for humanitarian uses “” such as paying for sheep for slaughter under Muslim ritual.

    And sometimes “whatever it is people go through” includes collecting Zakat to fund violent Jihad!

    Just another part of everyday life”if you’re a pious Muslim, that is…

    We’ve already seen how Muslims practice their throat-cutting skills on sheep, then use it on the filthy Kuffar….

    Meanwhile: in Uzbekistan, whilst the immigrant Orthodox and Catholics who came in during the period of Soviet rule are leaving, the ‘Independent’ Christian churches, comprising mainly converts from among the nonreligious *and from among the Muslims*, are growing at a rate of about 8 percent, despite evangelising being illegal.

    It is guesstimated that there are about ten thousand Uzbek-speaking – and therefore probably ex-Muslim – Christians. That’s not many compared to the total population; until one realizes that there were *none at all* a generation ago. And that the increase in numbers – which is currently continuing – is doing so in the teeth of sustained and strong official persecution.

    The best thing Russia could do for itself – and countries like France would be well advised to chip in – would be to quietly sponsor a/ a good-quality translation of the entire Bible into Uzbek and, once that was done, finance b/ 24-7 broadcasts of an audio version of same, into Uzbekistan. Throw in a decent poetical Uzbek translation of the great Orthodox liturgies, and of the ‘Philokalia’, and broadcast daily readings/ recitations of *that*. Then arrange for Fr Zakaria Botros’ hard-hitting no-punches-pulled critiques of Islam to be dubbed into Uzbek and broadcast *those* 24-7, on satellite TV and (soundtrack) radio.
