Islam A Religion Of Peace – I Think Not!

Many Muslims are constantly telling us that Islam is a religion of peace, but today evidence has again come to light to confirm the opposite. Last week yet another woman was stoned to death for ‘adultery’ in a Taliban-controlled area just outside Firozkoh, the capital of central Ghor province.

Sharia Law Public Lashing

Sharia Law Public Lashing

It’s a throwback to the time when public lashings and executions were an every day occurrence under the Taliban’s 1996-2001 rule, when a strict interpretation of Sharia law was enforced, but such incidents have been less common in recent years. Sad to say, despite the presence of NATO forces among others in the country for many years they have achieved nothing, for the Taliban is still strong in many areas of the country.

The girl in question was named by officials as Rokhsahana aged between 19 and 21.  Rokhsahana’s parents had married her off against her will and she was caught eloping with another man her age. This was seen to be adultery in the eyes of her family and the locals, and she was condemned to be stoned to death, which is the Muslim sentence for men and women accused of adultery.

After sentencing she was taken outside and placed in a hole in the ground up to her chest. Trapped in this manner she had to suffer stones being thrown at her exposed upper body by members of the Taliban,  local religious leaders and armed warlords until she died.

The funny thing is though, the men charged with adultery are very rarely stoned to death, for as in this case, the man was let off with a lashing. So as always in Islam, it is one law for the men and another one for the women.

In another case in March of this year, a young woman named Farkhunda was savagely beaten and set ablaze in central Kabul after being  falsely accused of burning a Koran.

The sheer barbarity of Sharia Law is without limit in the eyes of normal human beings, and that these practices should be allowed to continue in this ‘enlightened’ age is beyond me.

Since the Taliban were ousted from power by the NATO Forces in 2001 the government had brought in changes to outlaw this practice, but they have not worked and are ignored, the Taliban preferring to hold on to their evil traditional law. There have been many testimonies of Taliban death squads methodically targeting a host of female rights workers and journalists just hours after the city of Firozkoh fell on September 28.

A Million This Year Alone

With the current turmoil of immigrants pouring into Europe at the moment, people should stop and think what will happen to our future generations should these people eventually gain the upper hand here. With the numbers coming in, coupled with the Muslim birth rate which is nine times greater than ours, if we are not careful they will one day take over the continent by sheer force of numbers, and then what?

If they take over and we too are forced to live under Sharia Law the bloodshed will never end for there is no comparison between our way of life and theirs.

It is a fact that the greater majority of people do not think beyond tomorrow, perhaps that is a talent that comes with old age, but I hope more people begin to seriously think of the future, for it is only when you have done so you see this as a highly possible scenario and can take action to prevent it.

Multi-Cultural Britain – And When They Arrive In Europe?

Today it was revealed that Europe can expect an extra influx of over three million refugees over the next two years, which in my view will have a devastating effect on the economy, and the people’s safety. Muslims are known to be violent, for we already have rape and child trafficking gangs  operating among us and with the ISIS terrorist threat it will only get worse. With such large numbers living among us in the future I leave you to imagine the scenario.

Governments must take drastic action to stop this from happening for otherwise the European people will end up living in fear.

You may consider this post alarmist and that is your choice, but if what I say becomes reality in the future then you cannot say you have not been warned.

Taliban Revert to Human Shields

Posted in Afghanistan, Arab, Britain, Gaza and Hamas, Human Rights, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Palestine, Taliban, Terrorism, Terrorists, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 19/02/2010 by floroy1942

Once again the Taliban is reverting to its usual tactics when things do not  go their way. A news report from Afghanistan is saying that once again they are using human shields in the fight against NATO Forces.

Taliban Human Shields

It is a tactic synonymous with guerilla fighting over the past twenty years, and has been put to good use by insurgents in many parts of the world. It was used by Hamas in Gaza last year, and by the Hezbollah in Lebanon before that. When the going gets tough, line up the civilians and create as many innocent victims as possible! There are those that will deny this, but there is more than sufficient photo evidence to prove it.

All these terror groups are well aware of the propaganda value civilian deaths have on world and public opinion, and it is sad that most people cannot tell the difference between human shield deaths and accidental deaths. Many see the headline “12 Civilians Killed” and are immediately filled with righteous indignation at the cowardly armed forces who shoot innocent civilians, not thinking that the whole scenario was engineered by the insurgents. The extremists are fully capable of exploiting this fact, and as we all know, it is only when, for example, the Israeli’s shoot a civilian that it makes banner headlines across the world. To me, it proves yet again these insurgents are not fighting for ‘their people’ as they claim, but purely for their own gain.

Some may presuppose all this is NATO propaganda, but this time the reports come from the senior Afghan Commander, not the Americans or British.

The reports indicate that Taliban fighters have been lining civilians up on rooftops and then firing from behind them. Afghan soldiers have seen women and children in the windows of houses from which these brave ‘freedom fighters’ have been firing. It has made things extremely difficult for the troops as they have to put themselves in extra danger in an effort to prevent these civilians casualties. The Taliban tactic is working, because it has now slowed the rate of advance of NATO forces into the city of Murjah.

Hamas Human Shields

Today’s news has also revealed another Taliban tactic aimed at the American and British forces facing them. Afghan soldiers have found burnt copies of the Koran, the Muslim ‘Bible’, at positions they have vacated. Once more they are attempting to generate hatred of the NATO forces among the local population because to burn the Quaran is considered a great insult to Islam.

The usual Human Rights groups, led by Amnesty International have of course jumped on the bandwagon. A statement by the group said that NATO “lacked a credible mechanism” to investigate claims of civilian deaths. It went further to say that the use of human shields by the Taliban was “inexcusable”, and “could constitute a war crime”. Only ‘inexcusable’, and ‘could’ be a war crime? If the NATO forces had used human shields they would have been screaming their heads off. But once again, as in Gaza last year, Amnesty can be very selective in its criticism which is why I have lost all respect for this group of individuals

Human Shields

It urged both sides to ‘comply with legal obligations to protect the thousands of displaced civilians and those still trapped in areas of intense fighting’. They should make sure the Taliban know of their concern for the NATO forces are well aware of their obligations. What a pity the Taliban neither care nor take notice of these outbursts by a group that has had its image tarnished by its one-sided outbursts in recent years.

You are wasting your breath if you try to appeal to the better nature of the Taliban because they, like all extremists, do not have one. They are fanatics who are ready to blow themselves up for their beliefs so why should they balk at the idea of a few civilian deaths. Once Amnesty gets its collective mind around that one they may change their tune.

The use of human shields is not old, it is a phenomenon of our times started by insurgents and extremists as a way to create the maximum of bad publicity for their enemies, and to save their own skins. In general, the Israeli’s had to bear the brunt of the bad publicity for this tactic as it was used to such good effect by Hezbollah and Hamas against them. But for most people they are not the bad guys, the Israeli’s are.

How sad people do not want to recognise the truth.

New Afghan Offensive Doomed to Failure?

Posted in Afghanistan, Al Quada, Arab, Insurgents, Taliban, Terrorism, Terrorists with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 14/02/2010 by floroy1942

There is a very good chance the new offensive in Helmond Province in Afghanistan, Operation Moshtarak, may be doomed to failure in the long-term. From the news reports it seems to be going well at the moment, but Taliban casualties have been very few, and none of the pitched battles with insurgents that many had expected have taken place.

Coalition Commanders on the ground are saying the bulk of the Taliban forces have retreated, and who should be surprised at that.

I have a feeling that announcing the operation beforehand was more of a political move, made in the hope of allowing the Taliban to retreat, and thus reduce politically sensitive coalition casualties. The laudable thing about this approach was it did allow the civilian population to evacuate the area, and the avoidance of civilian casualties was, quite rightly, very high on the agenda. For this the idea must be applauded.

In my view, the one big flaw in the plan is the Pakistan Border, a mere 160 kms away. Since the Pakistan Army ceased their operations on the other side of the border without clearing all of the frontier provinces of insurgents, those still in Afghanistan still have a bolt-hole when things get tough.

It is without doubt a shame the Pakistan Government could not be persuaded to finish the job on their side of the border. If the coalition forces could have mounted this attack when the Pakistani Army was closing in from their side, they would consequently have had the Taliban in a pincer movement with nowhere left to run. Casualties on both the Pakistani and coalition sides would perhaps have been reduced by forcing the insurgents to fight on two fronts. There are many lessons in history here. Such an operation would quite possibly have wiped them out once and for all. What a pity politics got in the way.

Due this lack of foresight, it is clear they will now retreat as far as the mountains in Pakistan where they will stay until they judge the time is right for a return. This will be when they see garrison vigilance wanes due to inactivity, and forces are reduced to the minimum as a result. This will happen some time after the operation is over. For the Taliban, patience is a valued virtue.

If the coalition wishes to retain Marjah, it will be essential to keep a considerable size force in the town to hold it securely, otherwise, in a few weeks the Taliban could be back.

I wish every soldier taking part the very best of luck, and I sincerely hope the entire operation can be successful with the minimum of casualties. It is also my hope that when this action is concluded, the Taliban never again set foot in Marjah. We will have to wait and see, but this is just a battle and unfortunately, does not constitute a total victory over the Taliban.

The ordinary Afghan people must surely deserve peace in their war-torn country.

Roy.
