————————————————————–
 
The mass media and the political correct are in a spin because they cry “Islamophobia” but in the real world it is the followers of Islam who are slaughtering Christians in Somalia and it is only the Islamic faith which continues to kill apostates.  Therefore, you had mass coverage about a pastor who was going to burn the Koran but you have a virtual silence about the annihilation of Christianity in Somalia and the burning of Bibles in Pakistan.

In truth, the Islamists are clearly winning the media war and the political correct, trendy left, and mass of liberals are at odds with what they believe in.  After all, the religion which supports the stoning to death of homosexuals and which enforces women to remain in the shadows is being mollycoddled by a plethora of “well meaning hypocrites.”  Therefore, it appears that killing Christians in Somalia is fine because we must not upset the religion of Islam and the same applies to burning Bibles in Pakistan.
 
It is striking by the amount of political pressure and media pressure which was put on one single pastor, who in truth had no political or religious power, but became a household name in order to show how evil parts of America are.  This suited the “Islamophobia” agenda and political leaders like President Obama joined the bandwagon and once more the religion of Islam became “the innocent victim.”
 
Yet what about the burning of Bibles in Pakistan or the ongoing witch-hunt in Somalia where the Sunni Islamic al-Shabaab (al-Shabab) desire to kill all Christians; does this count?  It would appear not because these problems are ongoing and just like the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt or the continuing destruction of Christianity in Iraq ,you hear little about this in the mass media.
 
Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress (PCC), condemned and rebuked the attack against the Nasri Pentecostal Church which took place on September 18th, 2010.
 
He stated thatThe Sindh government must adopt necessary security measures of Churches and bring accused before justice to those who burnt Holy Bibles and vandalized (the) Church in Shah Latif Town.”  Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti and fellow workers at the Pakistan Christian Post work around the clock (http://pakistanchristianpost.com) in order to highlight and campaign for all minorities in Pakistan.
 
Despite this, while the “trendy brigade” and “political correct” pat themselves on the back about supporting the Islamic faith and showing how tolerant “our Western societies are.”  They remain mainly silent about reports which highlight the rape of Christian females in Egypt and the forced conversion of these Christian females by their Muslim rapists.  Sadly the same brutal method of rape against Christian and Hindu females in Pakistan by Muslims is also a disturbing reality but you have no demonstrations nor is the mass media “sinking their teeth” into issues like this.
 
Therefore, we have a strange “mirror” which is being told by the majority of the mass media. On the one hand we are told that Islam means peace but we know that all apostates face death in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, the Maldives, and a few other nations. Even in so-called moderate nations like Egypt, prison awaits the apostate from Islam and the family court system in Egypt clearly discriminates against all Christians in divorce cases involving children.
 
The sad reality is simple and it applies to the “dhimmis” bending over backwards in order to appease the Islamic agenda of stealth jihad.  After all, Muslims are free to build their mosques all over America, India, the United Kingdom, and in other democratic nations. 
 
However, people do have genuine fears when they know that Christians have been burnt alive in Pakistan; Christian pastors have been beheaded in Nigeria; Hindu and Christian females have been raped in Pakistan; apostates to Christianity are being killed in Somalia; the Christian community in Iraq is under siege; Buddhists are killed and persecuted in southern Thailand; the Ahmadiyya suffer systematic persecution in Pakistan; the Baha’is reside in fear in Iran; and the list is endless.
 
Remember, all religions will have fanatics but the persecution of Christians in Somalia is being done by a mass terrorist organization called the al-Shabaab (al-Shabab) and the government of Somalia also supports discrimination because Islamic Sharia law supports the death of apostates.  The same applies to Pakistan because Ahmadiyya Muslims, Christians, and others, reside in fear because of the blasphemy law which is punishable by death in this nation.
 
Therefore, the media highlights one pastor in America and condemns him and the same applies to senior political leaders.  Yet we have silence when Christians are being beheaded while Muslims recite the Koran and shout “Allah Akbar” while killing someone in such a brutal way. 
 
Given this, it is clear that systematic persecution in Muslim nations against all non-Muslims in societies like Saudi Arabia is tolerated. The same applies to this nation spreading Islam by funding Islamic mosques, Islamic colleges, Islamic newspapers, Islamic think tanks, and so forth, in order to further stealth jihad.
 
In the last 20 years we have witnessed the Islamization of the Chittagong Hill Tracts where tribals, the majority being Buddhist, have suffered mass Muslim migration from other parts of Bangladesh and systematic persecution.  The same process of Islamization took place in Kashmir because Hindus and other minorities were forced to flee and the same is happening in Kosovo against Orthodox Christianity and Buddhists in southern Thailand face the same fate.
 
These tragedies, and many others that I have not mentioned, are all part and parcel of Islamization.  After all, Islam is vibrant in India because this nation is secular and democratic but de-Hinduization is ongoing in Bangladesh and Pakistan. 
 
Therefore, non-Muslims are faced with a “two-edged sword” and this applies to systematic persecution in the vast majority of all mainly Muslim nations.  At the same time, the Muslim population continues to grow in Western Europe, North America, and in nations like India because of democracy, liberal values towards religion, Islamic kitman, open-minded immigration policies, and massive funding from nations like Saudi Arabia.
 
It is abundantly clear that Saudi Arabia is determined to spread the Islamic faith irrespective if by militancy or by stealth jihad which is based on playing “the victim card” and reinventing Islam to suit the long-term agenda. Given this, the systematic persecution of Christians in Somalia and open discrimination in Pakistan is ignored because other factors are at play. 
 
I stated in my article called Somalia and the reality of radical Islam that “….in modern day Somalia it is open season for killing Christians, killing Muslim apostates, and stoning people to death for adultery. Other draconian measures have also been implemented and chopping the hands off small time criminals is deemed to be a religious duty. Also, strict dress codes are getting even stricter and women have to remain in the shadows.”
 
I also stated in another article called Nigeria and Christian martyrs after several Christian pastors were beheaded by Islamic fanatics in Nigeria that “This madness will never end if appeasement is the answer or if political leaders like Obama, the President of America, make false statements about the real nature of aspects of Islam. I should also stress that “important and deadly facts about the Islamic faith are not being told.” However, Islamists are doing this carnage in the first place because of their deep knowledge of Islam and because killing apostates, forcing minorities into dhimmitude, and declaring jihad is all sanctioned by Mohammed and the Islamic faith.” 
 
It is clear that in the modern world that many political elites, the mass media, major non-Muslim religious leaders, educational institutions, and so forth, alongside the political correct brigade, are playing into the hands of the Islamic agenda.
 
This agenda was laid down by Mohammed himself and it is part and parcel of Islam and organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood must be “washing their hands” at the naivety of many.  Therefore, the killing of Christians in Somalia is rarely mentioned and the same applies to the systematic persecution of Ahmadiyya Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, and other minorities in Pakistan.
 
Until senior elites and religious leaders speak out against the brutality of Islamic Sharia law and the true message of Mohammed then little will change in the Muslim world.  However, what will change, is that the power of Islam will grow in Western Europe, North America, India, and other parts of the world and so many factors will enable this, including the betrayal and collective amnesia of the mass media and political elites who have their own agenda.
 
The persecution of Christians in Somalia and all religious minorities in Pakistan is also reaching closer to home.  After all, the London bombings and the Pakistan connection is clear for all to see and many Somali migrants in America have returned to Somalia in order to kill Christians and stone women to death for adultery.
 
The principle of secularism and liberalism is falling on deaf ears because Islamists have freedom to kill in distant lands like Somalia and Pakistan. While closer to home in nations like the UK and America they can indoctrinate and spread the message of hate and work alongside liberal Muslims because this dual agenda is about stealth jihad and Islamization at any cost.
 
Every time a Christian is killed in Somalia or when a Hindu woman or Christian woman is raped in Pakistan and this is met by global silence or indifference.  Then this is a victory for Islamists because they understand that “their brutality” is being met “by weakness or indifference.”
 
I am alarmed by the current reality of stealth jihad at home and systematic persecution of religious minorities and women in the mainly Muslim world.  It appears that the side of hate and slavery via dhimmitude and persecution is winning because of many factors.  Are you not alarmed?

http://www.tu.tv/videos/decapitacion-de-el-somali-mansuur-mohamm   (This video is very chilling and please do not watch if it will upset you.  The video clearly shows the beheading of Mansuur Mohammed who converted to Christianity and again note how Muslims were reciting the Koran and how they believed that they had done Allah’s work. 
Mohammed the prophet of Islam stated that all apostates must be killed.

Yemen and ongoing persecution of the Shia

Yemen and ongoing persecution of the Shia

The Modern Tokyo Times

—————————————————

In Afghanistan the forces of the Taliban and Al Qaeda massacred many Shia Muslims and the same happened in Iraq under Saddam Hussein.  Sunni Islamists clearly have little respect for their co-religionists and some Sunni Islamic organizations claim that Shia Muslims are heretics and this hatred can be seen in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and other nations where you have Sunni-Shia tensions. 

The current crisis in Yemen is clearly under-reported and many massacres have taken place against Shia Muslims.  In the following link it clearly shows you the deaths of many innocent Shia Muslims and this applies to many young children who were killed during the chaos in this nation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ivAeaVfILY&feature=related ) before a fragile truce was agreed in early 2010 (broken many times in the past).   

Therefore, just what is happening in Yemen and what is the role of the central government?  Also, if you have so much hatred within the House of Islam then what hope for non-Muslim minorities in mainly Muslim nations?

James Haider, Middle East correspondent for The Times (UK), stated on November 5, 2009, that the Shia “…accuse Saudi Arabia, a conservative Sunni Muslim country, of backing the Yemeni army, fearing the emergence of a strong Shia militia similar to Hezbollah in Lebanon.”

“In turn, the Yemeni Government in Sanaa has accused Iran, a Shia theocracy, of supporting the Huthi rebels as part of a campaign to spread Tehran’s influence across the region. The Government said last week that Yemeni troops had seized five Iranians on a boat loaded with arms in the Red Sea”.

James Haider continues by stating that 150,000 people had been forced to flee the government offensive in late 2009. This applies to land and aerial bombardments and clearly many innocent civilians have been killed.

If we look at the bigger picture and take away current militias or organizations or terrorist networks in Yemen and throughout the Muslim world, irrespective if Shia or Sunni, or from the sub-divisions within both groups; then it becomes clear that the Shia have been marginalized for centuries.  Therefore, do traditional Sunni power mechanisms just desire the status quo rather than bridging the gap and does this hatred within the House of Islam spill over to other non-Muslim minorities?

Rannie Amiri’s, whose article was published in the weekend edition of Counterpunch, (Feb 19-21, 2010) called The Shia Crescent Revisited, commented that “Should the Arab Shia be prohibited from freely airing their grievances and demanding accountability for past injustices? Stopped from speaking out against the crimes perpetrated against them under Saddam (in which many in the Arab world were complicit)? Prevented from attempting to lift the heavy hand of institutionalized discrimination levied against them in Saudi Arabia? Barred from seeking an end to their disenfranchisement in Bahrain – where they make up at least 70 percent of the population yet constitute no part of the government or security services? Forbidden from asking why the language of sectarianism was used to justify and amplify the carnage in north Yemen?”

It is a fair question and another question must be added and this applies to the global terrorist faith which was behind September 11th, Kenya, London, Madrid, Bali, Uganda, and a host of other terrorist attacks which have hit so many nations.  Were these Islamists following the Shia faith or the Sunni faith?

The answer is obvious because all these terrorist attacks were done in the name of radical Sunni Islam.  After all, Shia Muslims were not behind any of these attacks and the same applies to other Muslim groups like the Ahmadiyya and Alevi who are not involved in terrorism. On the contrary, the Ahmadiyya and Alevi suffer terrible persecution at the hands of Sunni Islamic extremists in their native lands and from the central government.

Even in Afghanistan and Iraq it is clear that Sunni Islamists and terrorist groups are the main problem because forces within the Shia have been much more accommodating.  Yes, followers of Muqtada al-Sadr who is a Shia leader in Iraq and who supported the Mahdi Army taking on American forces, is a rare exception but on the whole it is the forces of Sunni Islam which are behind the vast majority of the carnage in both nations.

Turning back to Yemen, then is this the next brutal war which will drag in outside forces and lead to the growth of radical Sunni Islam?  After all, it is clear that the al-Shabaab in Somalia desire to turn Somalia into a fundamentalist nation. It is also abundantly clear that Arab Sunni Muslims are behind this fanatical terrorist organization which beheads Christians and stones women to death for adultery or when women are raped but are blamed.

The linkage between the al-Shabaab in Somalia and radical Sunni Islamic organizations and terrorist networks in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and other nations, is obvious.  After all, you only have to look at the dress code and the way of thinking because everything is Arabized and Sufi Muslims now face persecution at the hands of radical Sunni Islamists but for Christians it is a complete witch-hunt and brutal beyond words.

Sudarsan Raghavan, Washington Post, February 11, 2010, stated that “Even as it fights a U.S.-supported war against al-Qaeda militants here, the Yemeni government is engaging Islamist extremists who share an ideology similar to Osama bin Laden’s in its own civil war, adding new complications to efforts to fight terrorism.”

The writer continues by stating that Yemen’s army is allying with radical Sunnis and former jihadists in the fight against Shiite rebels in the country’s north. The harsh tactics of those forces, such as destroying Shiite mosques and building Sunni ones, are breeding resentment among many residents, analysts said, and given the tangle of evolving allegiances could build support for al-Qaeda’s Yemeni branch, which plotted the Christmas Day attempt to bomb a U.S. airliner.”

However, America should be worried about this because America, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and other nations, used radical Sunni Islam in order to topple communism during the Cold War in Afghanistan.  Yet, just like the ongoing crisis in Pakistan, it is clear that obtaining radical Sunni Islamic support is a dangerous game because one day these very same Islamic jihadists will turn against their original masters in order to spread their global Islamic jihad and nations in the Horn of Africa, notably Ethiopia, must be watching events with great alarm and fear.

Abdel-Karim al-Iriyani, a former prime minister is clearly alarmed by current events in Yemen.  He states that “Using these extremist people, if they are with you today, they are prone to be against you tomorrow.”

At the same time it is clear that the Shia are being victimized by central forces and with radical Sunni Islamists and Saudi Arabia joining the fray, then fresh massacres and greater alienation will take place if the truce breaks down in Yemen.  Therefore, the future looks bleak for the Shia in Yemen and while extremists exist within the Shia community in this nation, it is clear that innocent Shia civilians are seen to be expendable.

It is clear that this is going to add to the Sunni-Shia divide throughout the entire region and stretching all the way to Afghanistan and Pakistan.  This internal hatred is also infringing on how Sunni Islamists view non-Muslim minorities because daily attacks are taking place. Also, Sunni dominated governments are implementing draconian laws in order to oppress non-Muslim minorities and Muslim minorities like the Ahmadiyya who are suffering in Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Indonesia.

Given this, Sunni dominated leaders and elites are mainly concerned about preserving their power base over the Shia and this hatred and marginalization also spreads to all non-Muslim minority groups. 

Therefore, apostates face severe persecution in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Somalia, and this applies to state sanctioned laws and terrorist networks in Afghanistan and Somalia who behead apostates who convert to Christianity or any other non-Muslim faith. 

To radical Sunni Islamists it is clear that non-Muslims and the Shia are both viewed to be infidels and worthy of killing.  For example, when Raed Mansour al-Banna from Jordan did a suicide bombing in Iraq which killed 125 people he was deemed to be a Muslim martyr.  This in itself implies that the Shia are worthy of killing in the eyes of Sunni Islamists in order to meet virgins in the Muslim heaven after waging jihad and killing innocents.

Therefore, will the Shia be protected from a fresh onslaught in Yemen if the current truce breaks down?  If, and which is most likely, their plight is ignored then hatred will spread deeper and this hatred will be aimed at Muslims and non-Muslims.

If the House of Islam can shed the blood of their own on the grounds of sectarianism then clearly non-Muslims are going to face the consequences of this hatred.  At the same time, greater marginalization of Shia religious minorities in nations like Saudi Arabia and Yemen, and many others, will only lead to more despotism and more persecution of all minority religious groups.

The Islamic faith fears equality, religious freedom, and the separation of mosque and central state.  After this, the Islamic faith fears internal infidels and the Shia are deemed to be infidels in the House of Sunni Islam and Sunni Muslims also use the same mantra against the Ahmadiyya community. 

Naturally, this hatred of diversity within the House of Islam also applies to that of non-Muslims and this can be seen by the brutal reality of modern day Somalia. Yes, another brutal nation where the Sunni al-Shabaab hunts down Christians and then beheads them slowly while shouting their allegiance to Allah.

Therefore, internal Islamic hatred is being whipped up against all notions of diversity and non-Muslims are suffering terrible persecution, alongside the persecution of Shia Muslims. This applies to the persecution of Assyrian Christians, Coptic Christians, Shabaks, Mandaeans, Yazidis, and other religious minorities.

However, coverage of dead Shia children in Yemen was rarely shown before the current truce which began in early 2010. The same applies to the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, Assyrian Christians in Iraq, and Christians in Pakistan, who are also marginalized and persecuted.

All these areas are mainly being hidden by national governments and the mass media in order to foster the Sunni Muslim agenda of preserving power. Therefore, draconian laws which infringe upon all minorities are being implemented in the majority of Sunni dominated nations.

Given this, the internal hatred within the House of Islam and the preservation of Sunni political power is being whipped up against all outsiders, irrespective if against Shia Muslims or non-Muslims.
