Terror Leaders Describe America Bound by Islam

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

We must do anything and everything to make sure this proposed scenario never comes to pass. Although I do not like the moral decay this country has, the rules of Islam are not the way to restore morals.

Madonna and Britney Spears stoned to death? Bars and clubs closed down? Church bells banned? That’s just a taste of what Americans have to look forward to if terrorists ever took over the U.S. and imposed Islamic law, according to a new book.

In one chapter of the recently released “Schmoozing with Terrorists: From Hollywood to the Holy Land, JIhadists Reveal their Global Plans – to a Jew!” author and WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein petitioned Mideast terror leaders to describe day-to-day life in the U.S. if al-Qaida won the war on terror.

“Once Islam dominates, anyone living inside the Islamic state must abide by our rules. There is no choice. You will abide or face the punishment,” said Muhammad Abdel-El, the spokesman and a senior leader of the Popular Resistance Committees terror organization.

Sheik Abu Saqer, a prominent Gaza-based preacher, a founder of the Sword of Islam terror group and a subscriber to the ideology of al-Qaida, explained if Islam controls the U.S., all American women, whether Muslim or not, must cover their hair.

“This is the demand of our religion. Being and walking naked doesn’t mean that you are enjoying more freedom; it means that you are going against Allah’s laws and you are serving the enemies of Islam who want to empty our Islamic society from its values. Uncovered heads is a form of nudity.”

Yasser Hamad, a cleric and a Hamas leader in the northern West Bank, explained in “Schmoozing” Islamic law enforcers would at first try to persuade American woman to cover their heads, but eventually females would be forced. Those women who refuse may be stoned.

Asked by Klein whether stoning was too harsh a punishment, Hamad replied:

“If you don’t respect the local law in America, if you don’t pay taxes, if you drive on a red light, aren’t there sanctions used against you by your government? Of course there are and it’s okay with you. Why is there a problem when it comes to the Islamic state that wants to impose its rules?”

Hamad and other terror leaders stated all Jews and Christians living in the U.S. once Islam takes over would need to pay the jizya – a special protection tax – and other special taxes for non-Muslims, including one for the right to cultivate land. Non-Muslims cannot own land themselves.

Saqer said no new synagogues or churches can be built in the Islamic state. Existing houses of worship may remain, but services cannot be conducted loudly or in any public fashion. The ringing of church bells or blowing of the ceremonial Jewish shofar would be forbidden, the terror leaders said.

Asked about crime and punishment, Hamad explained, “For every sin and crime there is a sanction:”

“Prostitution: one hundred whippings; if the prostitute was married, he or she will be stoned until death; for a thief, his hand will be cut. But before enjoying the primitive nature of Islam and before you express how much you are shocked by our rules, I must say that these are not immediate sanctions, but they are used only if the person was warned.”

Hamad explained prostitution doesn’t mean selling sex; he said the Islamic definition applies the term to all extramarital sexual relations. But he boasted Islam’s allowing men to marry many women was a perfect remedy for prostitution.

“In order to prevent prostitution and before reaching the sanctions of stoning or whipping, we will marry all our unmarried young. By the way, Islam allows the man to marry four women, so if he or she keeps practicing sex outside marriage and prostitution, in this case the sanctions mentioned in Quran will be used.”

The terror leaders all said alcohol would be banned and American movies and television would be shut down.

“American culture is very cheap and very corrupting. Your American culture is based on capitalism, on democracy, sex, and other principles that go against the nature of human beings as Allah created. We will fight all that this culture represents and promotes,” said sheik Saleh Faraj, one of the main leaders of the Islamic Liberation Party in the West Bank.

What about freedom of the press in the American Islamic state? The terrorists said once Islam rules us, American media outlets that don’t conform to disseminating Islamic messages will be closed. They said the NY Times, CNN, the Washington Post would all be banned.

“The media will be closed not because there will be no freedom but because what is the logic of allowing the activity of media that can endanger the political and social stability of our state?” said Nasser Abu Aziz, no. 2 of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terror group in the northern West Bank.

The terrorists took particular offense at the FOX News Channel, which some called a “network of evil.”

Abu Abdullah said, “The evil FOX encourages a lack of respect to Islam and resistance movements and will cause moral confusion and negative political influence.”

There is a possibility American music may be altogether banned if Islam takes over. Saqer explained in “Schmoozing,” some Islamic experts and sages, including those of the school of Egyptian scholar Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, allow music; while others, like those belonging to the Islamic Salafite school, forbid music.

Asked about American pop music icons, multiple terror leaders had never heard of many top singers but Klein said they were all familiar with Madonna and Britney Spears.

“Unfortunately, I heard the names of Madonna and Spears on [Arab] television when parents complain that their children neglect their studies and their values because they are influenced by your cheap American music that you call culture,” said Saqer.

Hamas’s Abu Abdullah said, “At the beginning, we will try to convince Madonna and Britney Spears to follow Allah’s way. But I honestly don’t think they will follow. If they persist with their whoring music, we will prevent them by force. I don’t think that I can be in the same place with these singers. They might be killed if they do not respect our laws.”

The Committee’s Abdel-El, whose group previously bombed Americans, said, “Their music video clips will be forbidden and these whores Madonna and Spears will be thrown in jail until they admit they made sins and return to the moral way. If they don’t, they will be stoned to death or eighty times hit with a belt.”

Abdel-El said even before Islam takes over America, he would personally kill Madonna and Spears if he ran into them.

“If I meet these whores I will have the honor – I repeat, I will have the honor – to be the first one to cut the heads of Madonna and Britney Spears.”

Russia Suspends Arms Treaty

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

Sounds like we are well on the way to a return to the Cold War.

Russia’s parliament has voted to suspend Moscow’s support for a key treaty limiting the deployment of armed forces along its border with Europe.

Parliament’s lower house, the Duma, unanimously agreed to temporarily abandon the 1990 Conventional Forces in Europe treaty (CFE).

The bill still faces approval in the upper house in December before President Vladimir Putin can sign it.

The CFE is one of many issues recently putting Moscow at odds with the West.

Thousands of Palestinians Apply for Israeli Citizenship

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

You see, there are many people who don’t want to be pali terrorist. Their choice is to become Israeli citizens instead of live under the yoke of the pali terrorist.

Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem calling to set up an appointment with the Interior Ministry to apply for an Israeli citizenship will discover the next available interview date is only in April.

In the months leading up to the upcoming Annapolis peace conference talk of a future division of the city has prompted a staggering increase in nationalization requests by Palestinians seeking to escape life under the Palestinian Authority.

Some 250,000 Palestinians currently reside in Jerusalem. Only 12,000 of them have sought to obtain an Israeli citizenship since 1967, an average of about 300 new citizens a year.

But over the past four months the Interior Ministry has registered an unprecedented 3,000 applications, primarily residents of the Arab neighborhoods unlikely to remain under Israeli sovereignty according to the political initiative currently on the agenda.

The 240,000 non-naturalized Palestinians in the city currently hold the status of permanent residents. As Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem they were also eligible to participate in the elections held by the Palestinian Authority.

As accepting Israeli citizenship was viewed by many within the community as tantamount to treason, most Palestinians opted to remain permanent residents and enjoy the benefits of living under Israeli sovereignty – full welfare rights, municipal voting rights and unrestricted movement – without putting their loyalty to the Palestinian Authority into question. The average Palestinian family in East Jerusalem currently receives a $770 monthly stipend from Israel.

Landmark Criminal Suit Against Waqf for Temple Mount Destruction

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

(IsraelNN.com) A group of 150 Israeli citizens have filed a class action suit against the Moslems who run the Temple Mount site for having destroyed Jewish antiquities there.

The suit, brought by the Shurat HaDin Israel Law Center, charges that Islamic Waqf officials have engaged in the deliberate destruction of ancient Jewish relics on the Temple Mount. The indictment was filed in the Jerusalem District Court last week, and Shurat Hadin sources say it is the first of its kind in Israeli legal history.

“We are utilizing a seldom-applied section of the penal code,” Shurat Hadin director Attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner explained, “that allows private citizens to bring a criminal complaint in certain areas. If we win, the Waqf officials could face years in prison.”

“Why has this never done before,” IsraelNationalRadio’s Yishai Fleisher asked. “Many things have never been done before,” Darshan-Leitner said. “You have to think and be creative in order to do these things. Basically, it’s something that the government should have done… There are certain areas of the penal code in which private citizens are permitted to file a private criminal complaint… The Israeli government has been notified of our suit, and it has 15 days in which to decide whether it wants to pursue it on its own. If not, then we will do so on our own.”

She explained that the 150 plaintiffs are acting as representatives of the Jewish People, who are the owners of the Temple Mount and therefore the injured party as a result of the Waqf actions at the holy site.

“In 1967,” Darshan-Leitner said, “after the Six Day War, Israel made a terrible mistake in allowing the Jordanians to continue to run the Temple Mount. It now continues to be under the custody of the Islamic Trust (Waqf), but is not owned by the Waqf; it is still owned by the Jewish people. King David purchased it, King Solomon built the Temple there, and the Jewish People have longed to return there ever since the Exile began nearly 2,000 years ago. Our regaining it in 1967 was the pinnacle of Zionism. Because it has long been the heritage of the Jewish people, anyone who violates our rights there must be stopped and punished.”

The suit accuses members of the Waqf of intentionally demolishing priceless Jewish artifacts, including remains from the Second Temple. In recent months, the Waqf brought in bulldozers and heavy digging equipment to dig a long trench on the Mount, supposedly to replace electrical cables. “Israeli archaeologists who sifted through the discarded earth,” the Law Center reports, “were shocked to discover a great number of Jewish artifacts brutally trashed by the bulldozers. A wall from the outer courtyard of the Second Temple is believed to have been completely pulverized.”

“The recently accelerated destruction is part of a four-decade-long campaign by the Waqf to eradicate all evidence of the historical Jewish connection and claim to the Temple Mount,” the suit maintains.

Shurat HaDin alleges that the Israeli government, in its “political cowardice,” has “consistently refused to undertake any concrete actions to stop the criminal activities of the Waqf.”

Darshan-Leitner says, “This private suit is an unprecedented response to the brutal attempt by the Waqf extremists to eradicate any Jewish claim over the Temple Mount. The Waqf leaders belong in prison for their actions, and since Israel’s government is refusing to protect Jewish heritage and property, we will prosecute the Waqf ourselves. This legal action is a moral obligation, not only for the Jewish people, but also for the Christian community, which has significant interests in safeguarding the Temple Mount as well.”

Pope and Saudi King Hold Historic Meeting

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

Another tick in the prophetic clock.

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Benedict and Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah held a historic meeting on Tuesday and discussed the situation of minority Christians in the Islamic country where the Vatican wants them to have more freedom.

At the first meeting between a Pope and a Saudi monarch, the two also discussed the need for greater collaboration between Christians, Muslims and Jews and prospects for a Middle East peace.

They spoke for about 30 minutes in the Pontiff’s private study with the help of interpreters in what both the Vatican and reporters described as a cordial atmosphere.

A Vatican statement said “the presence and hard work of Christians (in Saudi Arabia) was discussed” — seen as a clear reference to the Vatican’s concern over the Christian minority.

Vatican sources said before the meeting that they expected the Pope to raise his concern over the situation of Catholics and other Christians in Saudi Arabia.

The Vatican wants greater rights for the 1 million Catholics who live in Saudi Arabia, most of them migrant workers who are not allowed to practice their religion in public.

They are only allowed to worship in private places, usually homes, and cannot wear signs of their faith in public.

Ahmadinejad Announces Iran Uranium Enrichment Milestone

Wednesday, November 7th, 2007

The world continues to sit on it’s hands as the Iranian madman, Ahmadinejad, continues to develop nuclear weapons.

BIRJAND, Iran — Iran has achieved a landmark, with 3,000 centrifuges fully working in its controversial uranium enrichment program, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Wednesday.

“We have now reached 3,000 machines,” Ahmadinejad told thousands of Iranians gathered in Birjand, in eastern Iran, in a show of defiance of international demands to halt the program believed to be masking the country’s nuclear arms efforts.

Ahmadinejad has in the past claimed that Iran succeeded in installing the 3,000 centrifuges at its uranium enrichment facility at Natanz. But Wednesday’s claim was his first official statement that the plant is now fully operating all those centrifuges.

When Iran first announced launching the 3,000 centrifuges in April, the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said Tehran had only 328 centrifuges up and running at Natanz’s underground facility.

In a recent report, drawn up by IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei, the agency put the number of centrifuges working in Natanz at close to 2,000, with another 650 being tested.

Uranium gas, spun in linked centrifuges, can result in either low-enriched fuel suitable to generate power in a nuclear reactor, or the weapons-grade material that forms the fissile core of nuclear warheads.

The U.S. and some of its Western allies believe Iran is using its civilian nuclear program as a cover for weapons’ development. Tehran denies this, insisting its nuclear program is geared toward generating electricity, not a nuclear bomb.

U.S. experts say 3,000 centrifuges are in theory enough to produce a nuclear weapon, perhaps as soon as within a year.

Iran says it plans to expand its enrichment program to up to 54,000 centrifuges at Natanz in central Iran — which would amount to the level of industrial-scale uranium enrichment.
