World press condemns Woolwich killing
BBC News ^ | 24th May 2013 | BBC News

Posted on 05/24/2013 1:27:06 PM PDT by the scotsman

'The killing of a British soldier by two Islamist extremists in London is condemned by commentators across the world.

Newspapers in the Middle East describe the attack as an ugly act of violence committed by "imbeciles" who were giving Islam a bad name.

Although the crime is denounced by analysts in China, they say that the UK turned itself into a target of revenge by actively supporting US-led military actions abroad.

Opinion is divided in the Russian press, with one paper saying that the Woolwich attack was the inevitable result of "filling" the country with foreigners, while another warns that nationalists could use such incidents to stir xenophobia and win seats in parliament.'

Well sure they condemn it. It’s just that they can’t quite figure out why these things happen, that still gets them a guilty verdict.

Boston, Ft Hood, 9/11, and endless others have already happened. This one is a small blip compared to most Islamic atrocities around the world on a daily basis.

Giving Islam a bad name???
That’s like national socialism giving Hitler a bad name.

Stop with this crap about extremist and giving islam a bad name. That is is exactl what islam is all about. How many thousands of times does this have to happen before idiots in the West stop downplaying it with the extremist tab.

It seemed like the Rooskie Press pretty much 'got it':

Opinion is divided in the Russian press, with one paper saying that the Woolwich attack was the inevitable result of "filling" the country with foreigners, while another warns that nationalists could use such incidents to stir xenophobia and win seats in parliament.'

When you fill your Nation with those that have no desire to become part of the existing culture, nor to learn that Nation's history, but just want to treat that Nation as a temporary way station (or as conquered territory) as they remain rooted in their old land - you are asking for trouble. And multiply that by a thousand if these interlopers/invaders happen to be of the Islamic persuasion.

Perhaps nearly as offensive as the murder was the fact that people just stood and watched, and took pictures, and video of the killer’s speech.

The mau mau, covered in blood should serve as a wakeup call for America. We’re amassing more than a mere gaggle of mudslimes. Every city sprouts a minaret and a ‘cultural’ center or two.

It does seem as though these Africans are more easily converted to islam. Our prison system is a ‘mecca’ for imam recruiters.

If you mean the 2011 riots, they certainly werent Muslim, in fact three of the dead in the riots were Muslims killed by rioters.

The rioters were mostly white thugs and black thugs.

Just following the instructions in their holy books. Nothing to see. Move on.

The Koran:

Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."

Sura (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."

Sura (4:76) - "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…"

Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"

Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Sura (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah"

Sura (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."

Sura (9:14) - "Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace..."

Sura (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."

Sura (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"

Sura (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."

Sura (47:4) - "So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make them prisoners,"

Sura (61:4) - "Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way"

Sura (66:9) - "O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end

From the Hadith:

Muslim (1:33) - the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

Bukhari (8:387) - Allah's Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’”

Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, "Kill any Jew who falls under your power."

Ibn Ishaq: 327 - “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

Ibn Ishaq: 992 - "Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah."

The Koran and hadiths are replete with examples of Muhammad's barbaric behavior. Robert Spencer does a good job here explaining Islam - Blogging the Qur’an Start at the bottom.

Yet , the US press operating in this shadow of our Republic, allows this effing Obama to get by with this statement:

‘Today, Osama bin Laden is dead, and so are most of his top lieutenants,’ Obama said. ‘There have been no large-scale attacks on the United States, and our homeland is more secure.’

What in the hell does he call, Boston, where people were murdered in the streets, dozens without limbs and hundreds of people recovering from shock and wounds?

What does he call Ft. Hood, a US military installation, attacked by a radical Islamist that infiltrated our government? Murdered over a dozen of our finest.

Benghazi? What does this foreign thug we call POTUS consider soil where our American flag is displayed? Does four dead Americans on that soil not equal a terrorist attack?

I am betting there are countless attacks in this country that have been concealed in the name of Allah and Barack Hussein Obama. I’m not so sure the secrecy and coverup at Sandy Hook wasn’t a terrorist attack by Muslim radicals. Are you?

Despite the self serving protestations of muslims everywhere, it is abundantly clear that islam is a malignant cancer and must be treated as such. Muslims will continue their murderous ways, no matter what.
Islam must die so that civilization will live.

Uh huh. And guys who get mugged shouldn't have been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

And children who get abused are just bad boys and girls anyway.

And girls who get raped are just asking for it.

“How many thousands of times does this have to happen before idiots in the West stop downplaying it with the extremist tab.”

In an earlier story on FR, a writer at Frontpage magazine summed up the problem well..“reality-challenged psychopathology of the... elite...”

We’re dealing with psychopaths who can’t confront reality. Their entire lives are steeped in fantasy and wishful thinking. They’re trying to create a reality in their heads that doesn’t exist. They need to be locked up in institutions where they can’t harm normal people.

And those are the two problems.

I realize that not all Islamic adherents are going to do this sort of thing, but why would you import 100 of these people if you knew 3 were likely to be problematic.

Now these figures aren’t representative, they’re argumentative. I realize that, but the premise is sound.

Don’t immigrate more from terrorist states. Anyone that looks cross-eyed (if you catch my drift) jettison them out back home.

I don’t want to be xenophobic about any group, but you know what, I’m tired of my fellow citizens being set up to get slaughtered. If anyone can’t understand why, screw-em.

if I was there, I’d likely be tried for 3 counts of murder of the world’s finest citizens, no way on earth would I stand by and let that go.

Jesus says to love your neighbors as you would love yourself. I take that to mean watching your neighbor being butchered and not lifting a finger is not showing love.

Re: 28

Agreed. It is suicidal for a Nation, Culture, and People to ignore facts.
The Muslims I personally know are great people - but their religious book, the book that they swear to follow, is full of hate, mayhem, and evil. The 'isolated' terrorists are just living out their religion.
Praise The Lord that he restrains the majority, but to invite people into your country who hold these 'values' is just importing poison into your country.
