Mother places suicide belt on her child: “I will put it on you and you will go to your death,” on Fatah-Lebanon Facebook page


by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

The Facebook page for Fatah in Lebanon has posted this picture of a mother dressing her young son with a suicide belt. Palestinian Media Watch has documented the ongoing glorification of violence and Martyrdom by the PA. This picture was posted on the Fatah Facebook page together with an imaginary conversation between the son who is being sent to his death and the mother encouraging it. “Why me and not you?” the child innocently asks his mother, who answers that she will continue to have more children “for the sake of Palestine”:


“My mother dressed me in a strange belt (i.e., a suicide belt).

I asked her: ‘What is this, mother?’
She said: ‘I will put it on you and you will go to your death!’
I said to her: ‘Mother, what have I done that you want me to die?’
She shed a tear that hurt my heart and said: ‘The homeland needs you, son. Go and blow up the sons of Zion.’
I said to her: ‘Why me and not you?’
She said: ‘I will stay in order to give birth to more children for the sake of Palestine.’
I kissed her hand and said to her: ‘Keep it up, mother, for you and for Palestine I will kill the impure and the damned.’”

The Facebook page states that it is “the official page of Fatah’s Information and Culture Commission in Lebanon,” and is linked to from the official website of the Fatah Information and Culture Commission (www.fatehmedia.ps).

The PA-funded educational magazine for children, Zayzafuna, published an essay earlier this year written by an 11 year-old lauding death as a Martyr:

“How do you know that you’re a Palestinian?”
by Asil Khaled, 5th grade student – El-Bireh
“If you know that you were born with a death sentence, and if you go to your death without caring – then you’re a Palestinian!
If your song is the song of Martyrdom (Shahada), and death, for you, is birth – then you’re a Palestinian!
If you love death
, and you say the Shahada [declaration] (i.e., the Islamic creed: “There is no God but Allah, Muhammad is Allah’s messenger.”) aloud – then you’re a Palestinian!
If you’ve ever felt that you’re an exploding body and that your soul will long one day to be a knight for the homeland – then you’re a Palestinian!
If the stone is your weapon against oppression, and if those who hate [you] criticize your struggle – then you’re a Palestinian!
If you have saturated the tree of the homeland with your free blood, with love, and have offered the remnants of your bodily parts as a bridge for those who are yet to come – then you’re a Palestinian!
If you have shattered the chains, and carried the key to the house from which [your] grandparents were expelled – then you’re a Palestinian!
If your wedding (i.e., a Martyr’s funeral in Islamic tradition is a wedding to 72 Maidens of Paradise) was amidst a hail of bullets between the shoulders of friends [who carried your body], against the sound of tears mingled with joy (i.e., of achieving Martyrdom) and the searing pain of separation- then you’re a Palestinian, and you’re full of pride at being a Palestinian.”

During the years of the Palestinian Authority terror campaign (the Intifada, 2000 – 2005), Palestinian Media Watch documented that the PA actively promoted Martyrdom (Shahada) as an ideal that children should strive for. Music videos for children indoctrinating them to see Martyrdom as “sweet” were broadcast hundreds of times on PA TV. In recent years, Martyrdom for children continues to be glorified by the PA in contexts for children but with lesser frequency.

The following are two examples of encouraging children to seek death as Martyrs for Allah, and one example of two girls embracing this ideal:

This video, designed to offset a child’s natural fear of death, portrays Martyrdom as both heroic and tranquil. The film’s hero, a teenager, leaves a farewell letter describing the death he is seeking as pleasurable:

“Don’t be sad my dear [father], and don’t cry over my parting.
My dear father, for my country, I sacrificed myself.
With determination and desire, I will keep my promise.
How sweet is Martyrdom (Shahada), when I am embraced by you, my land!
How sweet is Martyrdom (Shahada), when I am embraced by you, my land!
My beloved, my mother, most dear to me,
be joyous over my blood, don’t cry for me.”

Muhammad Al-Dura (a boy who was killed in a televised crossfire) calls other children to follow him to a joyous child-Martyr Paradise. Al-Dura runs on the beach with his kite, and even goes to an amusement park:

Text on screen: “I am waving to you, not in parting, but to say follow me. By Muhammad Al-Dura.”
Narrator: “How sweet is the fragrance of the martyrs. How sweet is the fragrance of the earth, its thirst quenched by the gush of blood flowing from the youthful body. How sweet is the fragrance of the earth. The boy [Muhammad Al-Dura] cried: Oh father, till we meet, till we meet, father, till we meet, I will go with no fear and without crying. How sweet is the fragrance of the martyrs. I will go, father, to my place in heaven. How sweet is the fragrance of the martyrs. Oh father, till we meet, till we meet, Oh father, till we meet.”

Host: “You described Martyrdom (Shahada) as something beautiful. Do you think it is beautiful?”
Walla, age 11: “Martyrdom (Shahada) is a very, very beautiful thing. Everyone yearns for Shahada. What could be sweeter than going to paradise?”
Host: “What is better, peace and full rights for the Palestinian people, or Shahada?”
Walla: “Shahada. I will achieve my rights after becoming a Shahida (Martyr).”
Host: “Ok, Yussra, would you agree with that?”
Yussra, age 11: “Of course; Shahada is sweet. We don’t want this world, we want the Afterlife. We benefit not from this life, but from the Afterlife.”
Host: “Do you actually love death? “
Yussra: “Death is not Shahada.”
Host: “No, I mean the absence after death. “
Yussra: “No child loves death. The children of Palestine adopted the concept that Shahadais

very good. Every Palestinian child, say someone aged 12, says: Oh Lord, I would like to become a Shahid.”
Host: “We’ve got a call, Sabrine from Ramallah.”
Sabrine (on telephone): “Ayyat Al-Akhras was 17 when she blew herself up -
Host: “Sabrine, are you for it or against it?”
Sabrine (on telephone): “Of course I support blowing up, it is our right.”
Host: “Sabrine, now, is it natural that Ayyat Al-Akhras blows herself up?”
Sabrine (on telephone): “Of course it’s natural.”

Muslim Persecution of Christians: October, 2011


by Raymond Ibrahim
Hudson New York
November 17, 2011

The attacks on Christians continue and the world remains totally silent. It’s as if we’ve been swallowed up by the night”—Iraqi source

Egypt’s Maspero massacre—where the military killed dozens of Christians protesting the destruction of their churches—dominates October’s persecution headlines.  Facts and details concerning the military’s “crimes against humanity” are documented in this report, and include videos of armored-vehicles running over civilians, a catalog of lies and deceitful tactics employed by Egypt’s rulers and state media, and other matters overlooked in the West.

 The Intersection: Examining the point where Christianity and Islam cross.

More damning evidence continues to emerge: not only did Egypt’s military plan to massacre Christians to teach them a “lesson” never to protest again, but “death squads” were deployed up buildings the night before to snipe at protesters.  Instead of trying the soldiers who intentionally ran-over demonstrators, the military has been randomly arresting Copts, simply “for being Christian.”  Finally, the fact-finding commission of Egypt’s National Council for Human Rights just submitted its report which, as expected, “white washes” the military’s role, including by “asserting that no live ammunition was fired on the protesters by the military, as the army only fired blanks in the air to disperse the protesters,” a claim many eyewitnesses reject out of hand.

Meanwhile, not only are Western governments apathetic, but it was revealed that “Obama’s top Muslim advisor blocks Middle Eastern Christians’ access to White House.”  Newt Gingrich asserted that Obama’s “strategy in the Middle East is such a total grotesque failure” and likened the “Arab spring” to an “anti-Christian spring.”  Ann Widdecombe accused the British government of “double standards in its threats to cut aid to countries which persecute gay people while turning a blind eye to persecution against Christians.”  Even Christian pastors in the West, apparently more concerned about appearing tolerant and in “dialogue” with Muslims, are reluctant to mention persecution to their flock.

Categorized by theme, the rest of October’s batch of Muslim persecution of Christians around the world includes (but is hardly limited to) the following accounts, listed according to theme and in alphabetical order by country, not necessarily severity.

Churches

Afghanistan: Ten years after the U.S. invaded and overthrew the Taliban—at a cost of more than 1,700 U.S. military lives and $440 billion in taxpayer dollars—the State Department revealed that Afghanistan’s last Christian church was destroyed. The report further makes clear that the Afghan government—installed by the U.S.—is partially responsible for such anti-Christian sentiments, for instance, by upholding apostasy laws, which make it a criminal offence for Muslims to convert to other religions.

Indonesia: Muslims and authorities expelled Christians from their church and shut it down “for allegedly engaging in ‘proselytizing’ in a predominantly Muslim area.”  As in previous cases when churches were seized, “the fundamentalists were aided and abetted by the local administration.” Also, the Muslim behind a September church attack that left three dead confessed that he was operating under his jihad leader’s orders, “based on the Koran and Sunna.”

Kazakhstan: The Muslim majority nation enacted new laws further restricting freedom of religion: “All registered churches must now re-register with the government, and only churches meeting new criteria will be registered.” Accordingly, “police and secret police agents reportedly raided a worship meeting of officially registered Protestant church New Life, saying that under the new Religion Law the congregation ‘cannot meet outside its legal address.’ During the raid, a 17-year old woman was hit by a policeman, leaving her unconscious.”

Sudan: Soon after President Bashir “confirmed plans to adopt an entirely Islamic constitution and strengthen sharia law,” “emboldened” Muslims attacked Christians trying to construct a church, “claiming that Christianity was no longer an accepted religion in the country.”  Likewise, authorities threatened to demolish three church buildings “as part of a long-standing bid to rid Sudan of Christianity.”

Christian Symbols

Egypt: A Christian student was strangled and beaten to death by his Muslim teacher and fellow students for refusing to cover his cross. When the headmaster was informed of the attack in progress, he ignored it and “continued to sip his tea.”  In the words of one prominent Egyptian commentator: “a teacher forced a student to take off the crucifix he wore, and when the Christian student stood firm for his rights, the teacher quarreled with him, joined by some of the students; he was beastly assaulted until his last breath left him.”

Saudi Arabia: A Colombian soccer-player “was arrested by the Saudi moral police after customers in a Riyadh shopping mall expressed outrage over the sports player’s religious tattoos, which included the face of Jesus of Nazareth on his arm….  A similar event occurred in Saudi Arabia last year when a Romanian player kissed the tattoo of a cross he had on his arm after scoring a goal, which also caused public outrage.”

Maldives:  Police arrested a 30 year-old teacher from India for having a Bible and rosary, finally deporting him after a two-week interrogation. According to the principal, he “was a very good teacher, we’ve not had any complaints of him in the past.”  Such cases are not aberrant: “Last year, Maldivian authorities rescued another Christian teacher from India when Muslim parents of her students threatened to throw her into the sea for ‘preaching Christianity’ after she drew a compass in class, which they alleged was a cross.”

Apostasy, Blasphemy, Proselytism

India: A mufti summoned a Christian priest to appear before his court: according to the mufti, the priest “is involved in converting young Muslim boys and girls to Christianity. This warrants action as per Islamic law….  I will take all necessary measures in exercise of the powers vested in me by Islamic Sharia.”

Iran: Militants with suspected ties to Iranian security threatened to kill nearly a dozen evangelical Christians who fled Iran; unless they “repent and ask forgiveness” and return to Islam, they must die.  Likewise, a “group of four officers engaged in a commando-style raid on the house” of a Muslim convert to Christianity, arresting him, confiscating his Bible, and “transferring him to an unknown location….  His family was also threatened to remain silent and not to talk about this incident to anyone.”  Also, a Christian named “Muhammad” was arrested, interrogated “for the charge of Christianity.”  And Iran’s Supreme Court has ordered the retrial of the pastor sentenced to death for refusing to renounce his Christian beliefs, partially because “Iran is feeling the pressure” from the international community, since the mainstream media actually reported the pastor’s case.

Pakistan: A female prison-officer assigned to provide security for Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five sentenced to death on “blasphemy” charges, beat her, “allegedly because of the Muslim officer’s anti-Christian bias, while other staff members deployed for her security looked on in silence.”  A new report reveals how the nation’s legalization of blasphemy laws has given great rise to Christian persecution.

“Dhimmitude” (General Abuse, Debasement, and Suppression)

Egypt: The military threatened a Coptic monastery with a “new massacre” in an attempt to demolish the monastery’s fence “which guards it from unauthorized visits and criminals.”  The military has “stormed several monasteries since the January 25 Revolution, demolished fences, and fired on monks and visitors.” Also, a Christian man sentenced to three years’ imprisonment for “insulting the military” has been ordered to a mental health hospital, which, according to some analysts, patients often emerge from as “devastated human beings.”

Iraq: A new report titled “the double lives of Iraq’s Christian children” tells of their suffering—”If the children say they believe in Jesus, they face beatings and scorn from their teachers”—as well as the struggle of their parents: “The first years of my faith,” says a father, “I brought so many people to church, because I was motivated, so excited.  Now I don’t encourage anyone to be a Christian, because in my experience it is very hard.”

France: Stone-throwing Muslims attacked Christians during a Catholic celebration, though the media largely ignored it: “it would seem that the media silence on these facts, which are occurring more and more frequently, serves to exonerate, even protect, the Muslims in their racist and anti-religious acts.”

Pakistan: Along with one dead man, “two dozen Christians including children, men and women were seriously injured” when “Muslim gangs” hired by an influential Muslim attacked them “to grab a piece of land” which the church had purchased to build an orphanage. Likewise, Muslim landowners raided a Christian home, beat a sick father and abducted two brothers, whom they claim are in debt; the kidnappers have added an extra 70,000 rupees in ransom. “The men’s mother tried to file a report with police, which refused because one of the suspects is a fellow police officer,” not to mention a Muslim.

Turkey: The Education Ministry in Ankara published a 10th grade textbook which distorts the role of Christian Assyrians, “denouncing them as traitors who rebelled against Turkey.” Still denying the historic slaughter of Christians, “today’s Turkish Government is not hesitant to distort historical events by inverting victim and perpetrator… About half of the Assyrian population, were killed or died from starvation or disease in a series of killings orchestrated by the Ottoman Turkish government during World War I.”

USA: A Muslim convert to Christianity was violently attacked by Muslims because of a poem “which expresses pain over the loss of six million Jews at the hands of the Nazis.”  The attackers carved the Star of David on his back with a knife “while laughing as they recited his poem.” A Muslim physiotherapist “tore into” a Christian patient, saying her faith was “wrong” and had “killed more people than any other religion.” She later wrote: “I found Mr. Ali to be extremely racist against my Christian faith. I have had doctors, nurses and staff of all different religions look after me but this is the first time I’ve been treated by such a bigoted man as Mr. Ali.”

Pakistani Rape

As usual, Pakistan—which along with Egypt oddly missed being categorized as a “country of particular concern” in the State Department‘s recent religious freedom report—dominates the headlines regarding the sexual abuse of Christian women:

  • Kidnapped last Christmas Eve, “a 12 year-old Christian [was] gang raped for eight months, forcibly converted and then ‘married’ to her Muslim attacker.”  Now that she has escaped, instead of seeing justice done, “the Christian family is in hiding from the rapists and the police.”
  • “A Christian mother of four was slaughtered by a Muslim colleague in Pakistan after she resisted his attempt to rape her at the factory where they worked.”
  • A new report asserts: “The forced conversion to Islam of women from religious minority groups through rape and abduction has reached an alarming stage…  It appears today that no one, from the judiciary to the police and even the government has the courage to stand up to the threats from Muslim fundamentalist groups. The situation is worse with the police who always side with the Islamic groups and treat minority groups as lowly life forms.”

Killings

Iraq: “Two Christians were murdered in northern Iraq this week; their deaths come as three kidnapped Christians were released following the payment of a hefty ransom.” A source in Iraq laments: “The attacks on Christians continue and the world remains totally silent. It’s as if we’ve been swallowed up by the night.”

Nigeria: Months after Muslims from Boko Haram murdered a pastor, another pastor was targeted and murdered.  The jihadists have “claimed responsibility for several church bombings and other attacks”; many Christians have fled the region, and some churches have shut down as many of their flock have been killed.  Likewise, three Muslim soldiers, in the context of subduing civil unrest, “shot and killed a Christian mother of five” and a Christian boy, without “any justifiable reason.”

Somalia: Weeks after a convert to Christianity was beheaded, al-Shabaab, “who have vowed to rid Somalia of Christianity,” decapitated another 17-year-old Christian in his home: “It is usual for the al-Shabaab to decapitate those they suspect to have embraced the Christian faith, or sympathizers of western ideals.”

About this Series

Because the persecution of Christians in the Islamic world is on its way to reaching epidemic proportions, “Muslim Persecution of Christians” was developed in order to collate some—by no means all—of the instances of Muslim persecution of Christians that surface each month. It serves two purposes:

  1. Intrinsically, to document that which the mainstream media does not: habitual, if not chronic, Muslim persecution of Christians.
  2. Instrumentally, to show that such persecution is not “random,” but systematic and interrelated—that it is ultimately rooted in a worldview inspired by Sharia.

Accordingly, whatever the anecdote of persecution, it typically fits under a specific theme, including hatred for churches and other Christian symbols; sexual abuse of Christian women; forced conversions to Islam; apostasy and blasphemy laws; theft and plunder in lieu of jizya; overall expectations for Christians to behave like cowed dhimmis (second-class citizens); and simple violence and murder. Oftentimes it is a combination thereof.

Because these accounts of persecution span different ethnicities, languages, and locales—from Morocco in the west, to India in the east, and even throughout the West, wherever there are Muslims—it should be clear that one thing alone binds them: Islam—whether the strict application of Sharia, or the supremacist culture born of it.

Field trip! Iranian students pose as “human shields” around nuke facility, shouting “Death to Israel!” and “Death to America!”


Not even your field trip to the Amalgamated Wingnut factory in fifth grade was this lame. These students were from “Isfahan universities,” but how free they were to opt in or out of this trip is not clear (what would happen if someone said “no”?). In any case, the creepiness inherent in this exercise, with its implication of using human shields in a potential mass suicide, seems lost on the Iranians.

“Iranian students form [a] human shield near nuclear site amid fears of Israeli attack,” from Haaretz, November 15:

Hundreds of students on Tuesday formed a human chain around the uranium conversion plant in central Iran, in a demonstration staged by students to show that Iranians were ready to sacrifice their lives if the nuclear sites were attacked by Israel.

It followed a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that accused Iran of using its nuclear technology to seek atomic warheads. Israel also threatened to attack the Islamic state’s nuclear sites.

After holding a noon prayer session in front of the plant’s main gate, students from Isfahan universities shouted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.” They vowed to resist in the event of an attack…

SIX MUSLIMS (isn’t it always?) charged with plot to unleash devastating suicide bomb attacks in Britain.


Posted: September 27, 2011 | Author: barenakedislam

 

Three of them are accused of stating an intention to be a suicide bomber and planning to construct a homemade explosive device. Two have been charged with making a martyrdom film and traveling to terror camps in Pakistan — where their training included how to make bombs, poison and weapons.

THE SUN  Mohammed Rizwan, 32, appeared before magistrates in London today charged with failing to disclose information about acts of terrorism between July 29 and September 19. Bahader Ali, 28, was also accused of failing to disclose information and “arranging the availability of property for terrorist purposes”. His brother, Ashik, 26, was also remanded in custody and will appear later this month with co-accused Irfan Nasser, 30, Irfan Khalid, 26, and Rahim Ahmed, 25.

 

They are accused of one count of “engaging in conduct in preparation for terrorist attacks”. Nasser, Khalid and Ali are accused of planning a bombing campaign, stating an intention to become a suicide bomber, collecting money for terrorism, making or helping to make a home-made bomb and recruiting people for terrorism.

 

Nasser and Khalid are also accused of traveling to Pakistan for terror training including bomb-making, weapons and poison-making as well as making a “martyrdom” film. Ahmed is accused of helping others travel to Pakistan for terror training, collecting money for terrorism and investing and managing money for terrorist acts.
