There are groups with slogans like this all over the world, and the U.S. Government's official position is that Islam has nothing to do with any of them, and that to investigate their actual motives and goals is forbidden, because it gets them into...Islam. It's a recipe for suicide.
"Yemenis suspect Iran's hand in rise of Shiite rebels," by Adam Baron for the Christian Science Monitor, October 30 (thanks to Lachlan):
While the graffiti on the walls of Raydas bullet-scarred Awadin Mosque condemns the United States and Israel, the clashes that briefly transformed this agrarian town into a war zone were fought between local foes.
The fighting in Rayda was just the latest flare-up in a series of violent clashes in Amran and neighboring provinces that have pitted backers of the Houthi movement against their largely Sunni Islamist foes. And while its roots seem to be local political maneuvering, many here see the tensions as a result of Iranian interference in northern Yemen.
Yemens far north has long been wracked by fighting between Houthi rebels and various foes. From 2004 to 2010, the Houthis were the target of a series of offensives launched by the Yemeni government and their tribal fighter allies, who saw the Houthis as an Iranian-backed group intent on destabilizing the country.
When the government's control over much of Yemen weakened during last years uprising against Ali Abdullah Saleh, the Houthis were able to effectively gain control over the northern province of Saada and areas of neighboring provinces. Even in the capital, Sanaa, the Houthis have emerged defiantly. Graffiti bearing the groups vitriolic slogan, God is Great, Death to America, Death to Israel, Damn the Jews, Victory to Islam, is a frequent sight on the capitals streets.
Representatives and supporters of the Houthis characterize the groups growth as a natural result of their widespread support, saying the group has gained the trust of Yemenis due to its commitment to clean governance and its uncompromising opposition to the current governments alliance with the United States government.
But many Yemenis insist that the Houthis gains can be attributed to outside players, characterizing them as a pawn of Iran, citing longstanding accusations that they are receiving funding and possibly arms from the Islamic Republic.
You can see Irans hands in the growth of the Houthis, says one Yemeni politician, speaking on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the topic. Its a threat to Yemen, its a threat to Saudi Arabia and its a threat to American interests. ...
Stop Jihad Now!
With that headlin, I thought I was going to read something about BO’s latest ad
That was my first reaction as well.
My guess is when Romney is sworn in, in January BO will join forces with the jihad freaks.
Death, conversion or enslavement—there is no fourth way with Islam—so-called “moderate” Muslims are heretic freaks and damned to death apostates according to the murdering pedophile prophet of lies in the Moron Koran.
A lot of people already know this but when will most voters realize that Obama’s actions support these Islamic terrorists?
Pshaw... and we have exercises in fighting play-pretend zombie boogieman instead of Jihadist. Politically correct goofiness.
We may as well have exercises in fighting characters out of Aesop’s Fables. A little reality and backbone from our government would be more helpful and less humiliating.
Can you imagine the jihadists sitting around sipping strawberry frappes and falling over laughing about this? The mighty US military training against zombie boogieman...
Is this an Obama campaign speech?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
