Murder Mysteries, Myths and Truth

Whodunnit!?

In Pakistan, Iran and everywhere  Muslims have been very busy blowing up their Muslim brothers and sisters - I would say faster than a speeding bullet but perhaps here we should say ‘faster than a head cutting sword’ . In the words of the song ‘Old Macdonald had a Farm’ we can sing ‘Here a bomb, there a bomb, everywhere a bomb, bomb’ . Last week we were hearing of the bombings in the crowded Sufi mosque in Lahore, Pakistan’s second largest city. .

Thousands of people were present at the shrine dedicated to Hazrat Syed Ali bin Usman Hajweri, popularly known as Data Ganj Bakhsh, at the time of the attacks on Thursday night. Earlier, police and city administration officials had said there were three suicide attacks at the busy shrine, known as Data Darbar, in the crowded centre of the city which is home to around 10 million people. (source)

 They Sufis have long been characterised by their particular attachment to dhikr (a practice of repeating the names of God) and asceticism. Sufism arose among a number of Muslims as a reaction against the worldliness of the early Umayyad Caliphate (661-750 CE[6]) some see it as an eclectic mix of Buddhism, Christianity and Islam – and try to put a more peaceful gloss on them. But Sufis have had their own violent tendencies in the past even if now they are not as violent as they used to be. Genghis Khan was a Sufi and many Turks are Sufis. However, most identify Sufism with mysticism and whirling dervishes, who go into a trance like state in their whirling prayer. In the end spinning round and round might be the way to go, better than letting off bombs.

So who decided to have a go at these Sufis? Well your guess is a good as mine but I suspect it was some peace loving Muslims who did not like the more peaceful ways of the Sufis. And just as the world is recovering the news of this brotherly love incident, more bombs take the lives of unsuspecting Muslims from this world.

And recently there have also been some bombings in Iran.

THE death toll from twin suicide bombings at a Shiite mosque in heavily Sunni southeast Iran has risen to 26, a local lawmaker told ILNA news agency on Friday. Hossein Ali Shahriari, parliamentarian from the city of Zahedan where the twin attacks occurred on Thursday, put the number of wounded at more than 300."This explosion has left 26 people killed and more than 300 wounded. The toll may increase further," Shahriari was quoted as saying by ILNA. On Thursday, two suicide bombers blew themselves up at the Jamia mosque in the city of Zahedan, the capital of Sistan-Baluchestan, as worshippers were celebrating the birthday of Imam Hussein, grandson of the Prophet Mohammed. (source)

Even UN leader Ban Ki-Moon expressed revulsion at these bombings in the mosques and the many innocent dead as a result. And then after a period of no-one admitting responsible for this typical Muslim style attack [it was hard to link the CIA or the Jews to this one by any stretch of the imagination] someone did come forward. Jundallah said they did it.

The Sunni rebel group Jundallah (Soldiers of God) claimed responsibility for the bombings, saying it was to avenge the hanging of its veteran leader Abdolmalek Rigi. (source)

These Jundallahs - literally meaning Soldiers of Allah‎), are also known as People's Resistance Movement of Iran (PRMI) and  don’t seem too contemplative. They obviously have many gripes and have learned a lot of bombing lessons from their Taliban mates. But these Jundallas, as proud as they are of their achievements, must obviously be wrong because the Americans were lurking somewhere in hidden crevices of the mosque just wanting to do their stuff. I mean the Jundallas are telling the truth but what is the truth in the face of powerful myths, irrational concoctions and a chance for rip-roaring denunciation of America? You guessed it – the Americans did it.

 

As Melanie Phillips states in her recent excellent book ‘The World Turned Upside Down’ [2010] ‘Conversation with many Muslims in the West today has no correspondence with reality or rationality. The dialogue proceeds on two separate planes with no intersection between them because the Islamic mindset is governed by a closed thought system that cannot acknowledge anything beyond its own inverted structure. ‘ [p. 151] . The writer then goes on to detail the irrational mindset and describes its irrational patterns in incisive clarity. This book is an Orwellian comment on the irrationality which is encapsulated in the above events and the relentless violence.

Will the Pakistani and Iranian Muslim communities in Australia publicly denounce the MUSLIMS who perpetrated this violence.  That will be an indication that these communities, although they claim to be Muslims, have really begun to leave Islam, for they have begun to recognise the truth of the matter.

The challenge is there – myth or truth?

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
 
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
 
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Jihad Galore and the Toledo Whore

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

Jerusalem - Coat of ArmsWhy do Muslims insist that Jerusalem is their Holy City?
When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
