Pictures: ISIS Savages Mass Beheading Of Coptic Christians

The blood thirsty and barbaric Islamic State have released a new video allegedly showing the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians.  The victims had been working in Libya when they were separated from their Muslim co workers and taken by Islamofascist terrorists.

A scrolling caption in the video referred to the hostages as “People of the cross, followers of the hostile Egyptian Church”. Speaking in English, a fighter from the group said the beheadings were revenge for “Muslim women persecuted by Coptic crusaders in Egypt”. Usual stupid response as the Copts are in no position to persecute anybody in Islam dominated Egypt.

Coptic Christians make up around 10% of Egyptians. Until Egypt was invaded by Muslim armies , almost the whole of the nation were Copts. With the Muslim invaders spreading Islam by the sword with the choice of convert or die. Eventually Islam and its backward ideology became dominant.

Under Muslim rule, Christians were treated as second-class citizens both in society and under Islamic law, Copts paid jiyza (special taxes), had no access to political power but were exempt from military service. The Copts were cut off from the main stream of Christianity, but they were allowed to practice their religion with many restrictions in place .Unofficially, still to this day Egyptian Copts face persecution from Muslims.

Leading Muslim In UK Sentenced To Death For Genocide War Crimes .

A UK Muslim leader and a US citizen have been sentenced to death over war crimes committed during Bangladesh’s 1971 war of independence.UK-Bangladeshi Muslim community leader Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin and Ashrafuzzaman Khanwas were being tried in absentia by a special tribunal in Bangladesh. They were found guilty on 11 charges relating to the abduction and killing of 18 independence supporters.

Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin was the founder of the Muslim council of Britain. He also was involved in forming the extremist Islamic Forum of Europe,(IFE) Jamaat-e-Islami's European wing, which believes in creating a sharia state in Europe.

Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin is a cold blooded mass murderer. The best thing we could do with him is bundle him on a plane to Bangladesh so they can put a rope round his neck and give him punishment fit for his crimes. Unfortunately that will not happen so it looks like he is just another barbaric Muslim  low life that we will now be stuck with in the UK.  Mueen-Uddin  was a top member of the notorious paramilitary force al-Badr and of the fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami political party in Bangladesh.

After fleeing to the UK, war criminal Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin was the founder of the Muslim council of Britain. He also was involved in forming the extremist Islamic Forum of Europe,(IFE) Jamaat-e-Islami’s European wing, which believes in creating a sharia state in Europe. He is also involved in the IFE controlled East London Mosque and the terror linked Islamic charity, Muslim Aid. Currently he is a director of Muslim Spiritual Care Provision in the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS), a member of Multi Faith Group for Healthcare Chaplaincy (MFGHC).

 

Gallows for Mueen, Ashraf

Published: Sunday, November 3, 2013

A special court in Dhaka today awarded death penalty to Chowdhury Mueen Uddin and Ashrafuzzaman Khan for their offences during Bangladesh’s war of independence 42 years back.

The judgement was delivered in absence of the convicts as the International Crimes Tribunal-2′s efforts to get them in the dock failed.

All the eleven charges levelled against Mueen and Ashraf by the prosecution were proved beyond doubt, Justice Obaidul Hassan, head judge of the International Crimes Tribunal-2, announced in a jam-packed courtroom in the afternoon.

The convicts received death penalty for abduction and killing of nine DhakaUniversity teachers, six eminent journalists and three physicians in December 1971 with the intent that the new nation becomes devoid of intellectuals.

This is the ninth verdict in the sensational war crimes trial that was initiated 42 years into the country’s birth and the Jamaat-e-Islami is strongly against it.

The death sentence will be executed after the arrest or surrender of the convicts, the tribunal chief said.

The judgement was pronounced at 12:48pm after reading out of a 41-page excerpt of the 154-page verdict.

Earlier, the tribunal started its day’s proceedings at 11:00am.

Al-Badr operation-in-charge Mueen is now in London where he has made his name as a community leader. Apart from serving as the chairman of Tottenham Mosque, he also became the director of Muslim spiritual care provision in the National Health Service of the UK, the prosecution said.

Ashraf, chief executor of Al-Badr, is now in New York and has been involved in the conservative Islami Circle of North America.

This is the second war crimes case that is going on with the accused absent.

The first case was against expelled Jamaat-e-Islami member Abul Kalam Azad who was awarded capital punishment.

BACKGROUND

Right after the war and liberation of Bangladesh, newspapers carried photos of Mueen and Ashraf asking people to help capture the two “killers and Al-Badr leaders”.

The trial of Mueen and Ashraf was done within just over three months largely because the tribunal-appointed defence lawyers did not have the cooperation of the families of the accused.

The lawyers could not even get one defence witness to testify whereas the prosecution brought in 25.

Thirty days after completing the case proceedings, tribunal-2 on Thursday fixed today for announcing the verdict.

The prosecution and the defence placed their closing arguments between September 23 and September 30.

In their closing arguments, the prosecution said the duo “deserved” capital punishment for the crimes “they had committed” in 1971 while the defence sought acquittals claiming that the prosecution “failed to prove the charges”.

The charges are related to the abduction and killing of 18 intellectuals and professionals.

*Videos* SYRIA – Mass graves in Sadad: 45 Christian civilians killed by Islamist militias

sadadCapture

Rebel invasion of the town of Sadad

Sadad (Agenzia Fides) – The bodies of thirty Christian civilians have been found in two separate mass graves, including women and children, killed by Islamist militias in the city of Sadad. And, altogether, the Christian civilians killed in a small town halfway between Homs and Damascus are 45. This is what the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate in Damascus reported to Fides. The city of Sadad, a Christian settlement, was invaded and occupied by Islamist militias on October 21 and was recaptured in recent days by the Syrian regular army.

WARNING!…GRAPHIC IMAGES BELOW!


When the representatives of the Patriarchate and the families of the victims returned to town they found to their horror two mass graves, where they found the bodies of their relatives and friends. In an atmosphere of grief, outrage and emotion, the funerals of the thirty Christians were celebrated by Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh, Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Homs and Hama, who provided Fides the list of victims.
According to eyewitnesses, many of the civilians were killed by militia gangs of “Al- Nusra Front” and “Daash”. The city is now completely destroyed and looted. Some of the militants who invaded the city were holed up in the Syriac Orthodox Church of St. Theodore, which was profaned. Sadad is an ancient Syriac village which dates back to 2000 B.C. located in the region of Qalamoon, north of Damascus, with its churches, temples, historic landmarks and archaeological sites.

Far-Left Extremists UAF / SWP Are Jewish Holocaust Deniers.

In Britain today there is a group of communists who masquerade as anti racism campaigners called Unite Against Fascism. Despite the respectable sounding name, the truth is they are anything but respectable. They act like they are some on kind of moral high grounds should anybody dare to criticize Islam, falsely branding people fascists and Nazis without question. Yet when it comes to Jews or any other religion for that matter they aren’t so quick to leap to their defence. Islamophobia is big money business and they know it. Therefore their alliance with Jew hating Islamic extremists takes preference over all else.

When most people think of the holocaust, you think as many as 6 million innocent  Jews rounded up and exterminated by one of the most evil sadistic men to ever walk on this earth, no not the prophet Mohammed but Adolf Hitler and his Nazi murderers. Mass genocide in the gas chambers.

Yet the communist far left have a different version of events. In their leaflet opposing a BNP hatefest in Derbyshire, they hypocritically they call the BNP Nazis and holocaust deniers.  The leaflet carries the name of the Socialist Workers Party, its front group Unite Against Fascism and the fronts front group Love Music Hate Racism.

It states:  The BNP denies the holocaust where 1000s of LGBT people, trade unionists and disabled people were slaughtered.

UAF/SWP jewish holocaust denying leaflet,  unite against fascism and socialist workers party are racists

What would the SWP/UAF’s hero Leon Trotsky of made of the commies forgetting about 6 million Jews being exterminated, after all Trotsky was a JEW himself !!! Their alternative version of the holocaust is like meat pie without the main ingredient the meat.

During Hitler’s reign the phrase LGBT was unheard of. Homosexuality was a taboo subject then and anybody who was gay certainly wasn’t as forward telling people as they are today.It was kept secret not just in Nazi Germany but worldwide. Therefore the numbers of gay people who were victims of the holocaust was relevantly few. Disabled people were sent to the gas chambers and used as guinea pigs for medical research. Again relatively low numbers. Political opponents such as Marxist agitators which they must mean by trade unionists were imprisoned in the region of 30,000. Although most who died was by starvation or worked to death. Not in the gas chambers like the Jews.

uaf swp scum holcaust deniers

Bennett, Smith and co can try to hide their anti Semitic views by exaggerating the amount of non Jews who died in the holocaust but there is still 6 million or so Jews killed that are to be accounted for and that will take some serious persuasion to convince people didn’t happen.  For a group who go around preaching how they are anti-racists/anti-fascist, their failure to acknowledge the 6 million innocent Jews killed seems awfully racist and fascist. 

They also conveniently forget that as many as 20million people did in the communist gulags in the USSR. Far more than were killed by Hitler’s Nazis .

Bangladesh orders war crime trial of top UK Muslim – Death Penalty If Guilty

One of Britain’s leading Muslims is to be tried in his absence for war crimes in Bangladesh.  Chowdhury Mueen Uddin, 63, who was director of Muslim Spiritual Care Provision in  the NHS and chairman of the Multi-Faith Group for Healthcare Chaplaincy(no idea what that is but i image its well paid whatever) , is accused of  killing 18 independence activists during Bangladesh’s war of independence in 1971. If found guilty there would be demands he face the death penalty.

Over the decades, he became one of Britain’s most influential Muslim leaders, was instrumental in setting up the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), and is now one of the trustees of the UK’s leading Islamic charity, Muslim Aid. Both are regarded as having links to Islamist groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood. He also attended the renowned extremist East London Mosque. Mr Mueen-Uddin was one of the chief Islamic leaders who mobilised thousands of British Muslims to protest against the publication of Salman Rushdie’s controversial book, The Satanic Verses, in 1989.He led a group of Muslim leaders who went to Downing Street to hand a petition against publication of the book to Margaret Thatcher, who was Prime Minister at the time.

No doubt he will follow in Abu Qatada’s shoes and use human right laws as a way to avoid deportation to face justice. It goes to show you no matter how respectable the Muslim acts, there is always the potential Islamic extremist hidden inside.

 

Bangladesh orders war crime trial of top UK Muslim

By AFP Published: June 24, 2013

DHAKA: A Bangladesh war crimes court Monday ordered a British-based Muslim leader and a US citizen to be tried in absentia for the murder of 19 intellectuals during the 1971 war, prosecutors said.

The country’s much criticised International Crimes Tribunal (ICT) charged Chowdhury Mueenuddin and Ashrafuzzaman Khan with 11 “crimes against humanity” counts including murder, confinement, abduction and torture.

“They have been charged with the murder of 19 top intellectuals during the war. They included writers, university professors, doctors and journalists,” senior prosecutor Ziad Al Malum told AFP, adding both face the death penalty if convicted.

Rana Dasgupta, another prosecutor, told AFP that the court “has fixed July 15 for the opening statement” in their trial.

Some of the intellectuals the two men are accused of murdering, Malum said, are Sirajuddin Hossain, the executive editor of the Ittefaq daily newspaper; top playwright and Dhaka University professor Muneer Chowdhury; and the popular novelist Shahidullah Kaiser.

Both Mueenuddin and Khan were born in Bangladesh and had fled the country after the 1971 war.

“Mueenuddin is living in Britain and Khan in the United States. The court has ordered the trial to be held in absentia and has provided defense lawyers for them,” Malum said, adding the court was not seeking their extradition.

“It’s up to the British people and their government whether they are going to extradite a top war crime accused or not,” he said.

Mueenuddin, 64, has held positions in a host of top Islamic organisations in his adopted homeland of Britain and was involved in setting up the Muslim Council of Britain – the largest umbrella group in the UK representing Muslims.

The London-based former journalist, who denies any wrongdoing, was a newspaper reporter when the war broke out.

He is accused of being a leading member of the notorious al Badr militia and of the Jamaat-e-Islami political party, which opposed the war.

Mueenuddin would face the death penalty if convicted and extradited – although historically Britain has always refused extradition requests if the charges carry a death sentence.

Last week he told the BBC that he did not have confidence in the tribunal.

“I am happy to respond to these charges in an open and fair court of law that is recognised by the international community,” he said. “But I have little faith that the current process in Bangladesh is open nor just.”

Khan, a United States citizen, was a Dhaka University student leader during the war and who is now believed to be living in New York. Prosecutors described him as the “chief executor” for the al Badr militia. He has yet to make any public statement on the allegations.

The tribunal has already charged 12 people with war crimes. Four have been sentenced, three of whom have been handed down death sentences by hanging, including the vice-president of Jamaat-e-Islami.

Deadly protests over the trials have gripped the Muslim-majority country since January, when the court started handing out verdicts.

The current government says up to three million people were killed in the war.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s government established the ICT in 2010 to try the collaborators, but it has been hit by a series of controversies. Human Rights Watch has said the tribunal’s procedures fall short of international standards.

Video: The Nazi & Islamic Alliance – WW2 Collaborator The Grand Mufti Of Jerusalem

The far left like to call patriots who criticize Islam, Nazis This is because they know its a debate killer. Nothing could be further away from the truth. If those patriots had been alive during WW2 they would be the 1st to take arms to protect Britain and the freedoms of its people. Were as those leftist who make the accusations would most likely be appeasers just like today and join their Muslim allies as Nazi collaborators to save their own skin.

Muhammad Amin al-Husayni  was the Grand Mufti (chief Muslim Islamic legal religious authority) of Jerusalem under the political authority of the British Mandate in Palestine from 1921 to 1937.  He promoted  himself as a pan-Arab and Muslim religious leader and at the time was probably the most well known and influential Arab in the world. In his position of power he promoted Arab nationalism, would incite violence against the British, and preach Jew-hatred and the annihilation of the Jews of British Mandatory Palestine.

Amin Al Husseini shown shaking hands with his friend Heinrich Himmler, head of Hitler's SS. Amin Al Husseini asked Himmler if he could see the gasing of Jews first-hand in the concentration camps. Himmler granted him his wish.

As Grand Mufti his position carried overarching religious and moral authority throughout Palestine. Becoming president of the newly established Supreme Muslim Council (al-Majlis al-Islami al-A’ala), a position that controlled the shari’a courts, approved the content of education for religious schools and orphanages, and supervised religious financial advisory boards and the use of funds (waqf) for maintenance and renovation of religious sites and institutions, and for assistance to the poor. Control over these funds enhanced his authority within Palestine and among leaders of other Arab states and the Muslim World.

Following the outbreak of World War 2 and Britain’s attention focused elsewhere. Muhammad Amin al-Husayni and his Arab nationalists attempted to overthrow the British rulers of Palestine. This attempted failed and the Mufti was forced to flee into exile. Wanted by the British and sharing the same imense hatred for the Jews, it was only a matter of time before the Mufti as voice of the Arab Muslims turned up in Hitlers Nazi Germany. Making such a good impression, he was given a propaganda role for the Nazi’s and his own radio program aimed at Arabs from where he issued a fatwa declaring Muslims at war against the British.

His propaganda position and subsequent recruitment of Muslims to the Nazi cause saw his position elevated and a strong bond formed with Himler and the SS. He played a pivotal role in the decision to commit genocide of the Jews.  Hitler was reportedly content with deporting the Jews out of Europe to Palestine.  Husseini perceived this as a threat to his stronghold in Palestine and pushed successfully for the extermination of the European Jews.

Amin Al Husseini inspecting his Nazi troops, the Hanzar. Here, he is showing a young Muslim recruit how to use his rifle. Amin Al Husseini himself had been an officer in the defeated Ottoman Islamic Empire of World War I.

While in Bosnia, Amin Al-Husseini takes the title “Protector of Islam”.  One hundred thousand (100,000) Bosnian Muslims join the Nazi ranks. They seek Nazi approval to establish autonomous Nazi protectorate for Bosnian Muslims.Bosnian ethnic cleansing under Amin al Husseini: . Orthodox Christian Serbs:  200,000 killed. Jewish Bosnians: 22,000 killed  . Gypsies:    over 40,000 killed

In 1943, Amin Al Husseini heads the Hanzar Division of Nazi Muslims. It was Hitler's largest SS Division and was responsible for the genocide of Serbians, Gypsies and Jews. It lies at the root of today's unrest in Serbia/Bosnia-Hercegovina/Croatia.

Amin Al Husseini creates the Hanzar Division of Nazi Muslim Soldiers in Bosnia, which he calls ‘the cream of Islam’.  It becomes the largest division of the Third Reich Army (26,000 men) and participates actively in the genocide of Serbian and Jewish populations.

New Civitas Study Says Christians Are The Most Persecuted In The World. Muslims Are The Most Oppresive

Heres some food for thought. Thinktank Civitas have released the findings of their study on religious persecution around the world. Confirming what many had already suspected, which is that unlike the poor old  hard done to Muslims like to make out, it is actually the Christians who are the most persecuted of all religions and Muslims who like to play the victims are infact actually the most oppressive of all religions. Another Muslim myth rebuffed. So next time you here the Islamic serial moaners playing the victims, you will know its just another  taqiyya and a ploy to get their own way.

The report also suggests western politicians and main stream media tend to ignore widespread persecution of Christians in the Middle East and the rest of the World for fear of being accused of racism. Where have we heard that before i wonder. It’s about time they did speak up about it, after all the times Muslims and their appeasers have accused others of racism and being oppressive against them.

Another thing the report mentioned about the western world ignoring Christianphobia,is something i have mentioned myself in the past.That unlike the Muslims who love nothing better than kicking up a fuss about nothing and having a right good moan usually followed by some kind of violence.Young Christians around the world tend not to resort to such drastic means as violent protests. That could quite possibly be to do with the total contrasts in teachings between the 2 religions and their examples they try to follow.Christians  try to follow the example of Jesus and to a Muslim Muhammed is the perfect man who they try and emulate in every way. Where J.C was a man of peace and taught his followers to turn the other cheek, Mo was the complete opposite. A ruthless dictator who told his followers not to turn the other cheek but to behead anyone who disagreed. Going off them principles that would explain why the Christians just take the persecution and get on with it, and Muslims always kick up a stink and resort to violence any time something upsets them

Christianity at risk of wipe-out in the Middle East, warns new Civitas study

Christianity is in serious danger of being wiped out in its biblical heartlands because of Islamic oppression, according to a new report from a leading independent think-tank.

But Western politicians and media largely ignore the widespread persecution of Christians in the Middle East and the wider world because they are afraid they will be accused of racism.

They fail to appreciate that in the defence of the wider concept of human rights, religious freedom is the “canary in the mine”, according to the report.

The refusal of young Christians in the West to become “radicalised” and mount violent protests against the attacks on their faith also helps to explain the “blind spot” about “Christianophobia” in influential liberal Western circles.

The report, Christianophobia, written by journalist Rupert Shortt and published by Westminster think-tank Civitas, lays bare the scale of the vendetta against Christians across the globe.

They are more likely to be the target of discrimination or persecution that any other religious group and they are particularly at risk in Muslim-dominated societies. Oppression is magnified by anti-Americanism and the false belief that Christianity is a “Western” creed, even though it originated in the Middle East and has been an integral part of that region’s belief systems for 2000 years.

Mr Shortt quotes expert findings that between a half and two-thirds of Christians in the Middle East have left or been killed over the past century.

The pace of this assault is now intensifying with the rise of militant Islam in countries such as Egypt, Iraq and now, with the civil war, Syria.

Across the world as a whole, some 200 million Christians (10 per cent of the total) are socially disadvantaged, harassed or actively oppressed for their beliefs.

Mr Shortt writes:  “Exposing and combating the problem ought in my view to be political priorities across large areas of the world. That this is not the case tells us much about a questionable hierarchy of victimhood.

“The blind spot displayed by governments and other influential players is causing them to squander a broader opportunity. Religious freedom is the canary in the mine for human rights generally.”

The report surveys in detail the extent of Christian persecution in seven countries – Egypt, Iraq, Pakistan, Nigeria, Burma, China and India. And it cites findings from the Freedom House think-tank report to highlight the way that Muslim-majority countries are the most hostile to Christians.

They impose the greatest curbs on religious freedoms and make up 12 of the 20 countries judged to be “unfree” on the grounds of religious tolerance. Of the seven states receiving the lowest possible score, four are Muslim.

Mr Shortt traces the rise of Christianophobia in Egypt to the early 1970s when the quadrupling of oil prices gave Saudi Arabian religious extremists the material means to export their intolerant views around the world.

Atrocities involving the deaths of scores of Christians in the 1970s were followed by steady deterioration in the 1980s and 1990s when the death rate multiplied into the hundreds in many separate attacks.

More recently, in January 2010, 13 worshippers were killed when they came out of St George’s Church in Nag Hammadi, near Luxor.

Mr Shortt illustrates the mounting hostility to Christians by quoting the Salafist website ‘Guardians of the Faith’, which published an article saying “Being a Muslim girl whose role models are the wives of the Prophet, who were required to wear the hijab, is better than being a Christian girl, whose role models are whores.”

The problem is compounded by the fact that “…many Egyptian Muslims think that Copts are implicated in what they see as a Christian assault on the Muslim world, because of George W. Bush’s use of the term ‘crusade’ after 9/11.

“Others maintain that Bush’s ill-chosen words and mistaken policies have provided a convenient excuse for aggression against minority groups which patently have no connection with Western governments.”

Iraq has also witnessed the decimation of its Christian community amid frequent bombings, shootings, beheadings and kidnappings, especially since the invasion of 2003.

In 1990 there were between 1.2 to 1.4 million Christians in Iraq. By 2003, there were only around half a million. Today there are less than 200,000.

Christians are also under pressure in non-Muslim countries.

 

Mr Shortt points out that more Christians are imprisoned in China than in any other country in the world. It is estimated that almost 2000 members of house churches were arrested during the 12 months after May 2004 alone.

This is in a country where “public security officials have the right to imprison people for up to three years without trial,” he points out.

Mr Shortt asks whether the problem is with Islam itself or contingent factors?

“There is a theory that the idea of jihad is more deeply embedded in Islam than related notions in the other world religions – and therefore that Islam is more susceptible to violent extremism – because of the martial context in which Islam took root.”

However, he does not exclude Christians from committing acts of violence against other faiths, highlighting the activities in the 1970s and 1980s of Lebanese Phalangist militias were dominated by Maronites in communion with the see of Rome.

During the 1990s, Orthodox Christians (and ex-Communists who used their religious heritage as a flag of convenience) were guilty of extreme aggression against Muslims and Catholics in the Balkans.

The author concludes that it took Christian societies many centuries to evolve a tradition of tolerance towards other faiths. He expresses the hope that Islam might eventually reach the same destination.
