A knowledgeable friend sent me the articles below from the Jerusalem Post, twitter and the Wall Strret Journal which report on the murder of the "leftist" reporter for a "leftist" Italian newspaper who was a member of the "leftist" International Solidarity Movement (i.e., he was a Useful Idiot
The Wall Street Journal reported that the kidnappers/murderers said in "a video clip":
"The Italian hostage entered our land only to spread corruption."
The newspapers/twitter did not explain that anyone who does not accept the proposition that "there is no god but Allah and Mohammed is his prophet" is regarded as a person who spreads "corruption" and that is precisely why this man was murdered.
One must always first look to the Koran.
Therefore We prescribed for the Children of Israel that whoso slays a soul not to retaliate for a soul slain, nor for corruption done in the land, shall be as if he had slain mankind altogether; and whoso gives life to a soul, shall be as if he has given life to mankind altogether. Our Messengers have already come to them with the clear signs; then many of them thereafter commit excesses in the earth.
This is the recompense of those who fight against God and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off; or they shall be banished from the land. That is a degradation for them in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement,
except for such as repent, before you have power over them. So know you that God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.
This of course means that all "non-Muslim" kuffar
i.e., you, unless you are Muslim, is ultimately in line for the same treatment unless you submit.
What about Human Rights?
Well Islam covers that - Jihad
covers the ground:
Islam, which God made the "best nation" "affirms" "the freedom and and right of all" “mankind”
' to a dignified life in accordance with Islamic Shari'ah."
This is the essence of Islam's contemporary Declaration of Jihad dressed in expensive sounding legalese contained
This was accepted into the Instruments of the United Nations in 1997.
Not a lot of people know that.
Everybody had better get to know before it is too late.
We sang about it - what a subject!
Take a listen:
Subject: The Murder in Gaza
Only the Wall Street Journal hit precisely the right note on the murder in gaza -- see last item below.
The islamic misfits announced their intention to murder.
In an entirely predictable twist, hamas accused Israel of the murder only hours after denouncing the islamic perpetrators. Lies are woven effortlessly into all aspects of arab life, and as such, create no dissonance.
In yet another twist, the murdered Italian sent out a twitter message only hours before his abduction. He called the young Egtian Christian blogger, Maikel Nabil Sanad (who has just been imprisoned by post-revolution egypt), a 'traitor'.
The only surprise in all this is that Europeans continue to engage with all these misanthropes. Why give credibility to those who consistently lie so openly and brazenly?
A Death in Gaza
, WSJ, 16 April 2011.
Terrorist thugs cannot be confused with freedom fighters.
Political naivete is not a crime, at least not in the West. But Italian Vittorio Arrigoni, a 36-year-old pro-Palestinian activist, was not in the West when he was kidnapped by an al Qaeda offshoot and strangled to death with a plastic cord. He was in the Gaza Strip, where terrorist furies make no exceptions for Western fellow travelers.
Arrigoni, who filed dispatches from the Strip for a leftist Italian newspaper and a blog called "Guerilla Radio," was a member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), a group that is in the business of ferrying Western sympathizers to Palestinian territories to denounce Israel. His killing came as a "complete shock" to ISM leader Huweida Arraf, who added that she "didn't think there was even a one percent chance they would kill him." His kidnappers clearly thought differently, saying in a video clip that "The Italian hostage entered our land only to spread corruption."
Hamas, which controls the Strip, was quick to denounce Arrigoni's murder, insisting it "does not reflect the values, morals and customs" of the people of Gaza, according to spokesman Ehab al-Ghussein. That's rich coming from a group that has produced scores of suicide bombers and fired thousands of unguided rockets at civilian Israeli targets. Last week, Hamas's paramilitary wing took responsibility for firing a guided antitank missile at a yellow Israeli school bus. One teenage boy was critically injured; it was only good fortune that the bus was near the end of its route and had dropped off most of its young passengers.
Arrigoni was not in Gaza to protest such outrages, an act that would have required something more than the rigid political correctness that passes for courage in radical circles. But his murder remains an outrage all the same, as well as a lesson, perhaps, in the dangers of mistaking terrorist thugs for freedom fighters.
