In terms of religious awareness the noughties have certainly been Islam’s decade. The cult has come from complete obscurity to domination of the world’s headlines in only ten years. They started with the failed Christmas Market attack in 2000, then 9/11, Madrid, London, Bali, Beslan, Mumbai, and Fort Hood .
‘I have been made victorious with terror’
These attacks, now Jihadists are able to penetrate Dar al-Harb with ease, should come as no surprise to anyone who has studied Islamic history. It’s only their distance from us that has protected us since they were turned back at the Gates of Vienna in 1683.
Unfortunately, globalization has abolished distance and now jihadists are in everybody’s backyard.

Mohammed himself bragged that he had been made victorious with terror, and his followers are obliged to imitate Mohammed’s infallible example as the perfect man and role model of behavior. This is not to suggest that all Muslims are fully observant terrorists. Recent polls suggest that only about 30% actively support terrorism.
Ritualised, ceremonial murder
Of course we’ve had terrorists before – ETA, IRA, Red Brigades etc going right back to the 19th century Anarchists.
But there’s one thing that sets Islamic terrorism apart, and it’s something that I was only half aware of until I read the following post, and that is Islamic terrorism’s ritualistic nature. The dead infidels and their blood are human sacrifices: ritual offerings to Allah…
“From the videotapes of a beheading, that accompanies every kidnap of Westerners, to the mass slaughter of Muslim prisoners who are tied and bound in Iraq and Algeria, modern Islam appears to have retreated into some mirror image of an ancient bloody past, where bloodthirsty winged devils, and gory altars haunted the ancient Middle East.
You don’t need to understand Arabic to get the message of those videos of a beheading, with their rituals and liturgy from the mosque. The sermon, read by a self styled imam precedes the sacrifice, when the human calf, bound and shivering with terror (apart from the brave Italian hostage), has his or her throat slit, by the “imam.”
This ‘imam’ may well be the local halal butcher, as was found to be the case in Algeria, where ‘Momo le Nain’, aka Mohammed the Midget, a butchers apprentice, beheaded many prisoners. On one memorable night in 1996, in Ben-Talha, a suburb of the capital Algiers, ‘Momo’ cut off a record 86 heads in one night, that included taking the heads of more than a dozen children.
This search for victims includes not just those who oppose the spread of the faith, but pretty well anyone the Imams dislike, such as women. In Pakistan in 2007 two women were beheaded for being prostitutes. This follows the beheading of ten soldiers in the Philippines and the beheading of Christian schoolgirls in Indonesia in 2005.
We could be watching events from 4,000 years ago, not the 21st century and how long before the first western victims in Europe, Australia or the US? The terrorists may well only ‘mimic the rituals of the faith’, but for Muslim or non Muslim apologists to declare it as ‘Non Islamic’ to behead or torture, is to display an ignorance of the Quran and Hadiths, or to lie.
(Quran: Sura Al-Muhammad 47:4) “So, when you meet (in fight Jihâd in Allâh’s Cause), those who disbelieve, smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islâm), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allâh to continue in carrying out Jihâd against the disbelievers till they embrace Islâm or at least come under your protection.”
(Quran: Sura 47, Verse 4) “As for the captives, the amir [ruler] has the choice of taking the most beneficial action of four possibilities: the first to put them to death by cutting their necks; the second, to enslave them and apply the laws of slavery regarding their sale and manumission; the third, to ransom them in exchange for goods or prisoners; and fourth, to show favor to them and pardon them. Allah, may he be exalted, says, ‘When you encounter those [infidels] who deny [the Truth=Islam] then strike [their] necks’”.
There are many more quotes of a similar nature that taken out of context, or literally, support the terrorist’s theology. In fact it’s because of these apparent Quranic endorsements of torture, that a religion, where every man with a turban can claim to be a scholar of the faith, has produced so few or no public condemnations of the ritualised beheadings being beamed almost nightly on Arab TV or the Internet.
Who would have thought that human sacrifice in the name of a world religion would once again stalk the earth in the 21st Century?”
Dedication of the human sacrifice to the Moon God
“Then the man pulled out a long knife and cut off Bigley’s head with the help of a group of masked men who shouted, “God is great!” in Arabic. This is actually incorrect. They shouted ‘Allahu Akhbar!’ which means ‘Allah is the Greatest’.
However Allah cannot be the same as the Judeo-Christian God, because God forbade human sacrifice when Abraham tried to sacrifice Isaac. There are also warnings in the Old Testament about a moon-demon called Moloch who demands human sacrifice.
This dedication of the slaughtered kafirs to Allah occurs again and again in Islamic attacks. The Fort Hood shooter shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he opened fire. [again ‘Allah’ is mistransalted as ‘God’]
Note also in the following videos how the congregation shout ‘Allahu Akbar’ as the Kafir’s blood begins to flow.
Jihad Snuff Videos
These are typical of the ‘ jihad snuff’ videos being shown in mosques referred to in the Guardian article.
As with many primitive peoples it is the shedding of blood that gets them excited. The blood is seen as a libation to Allah. To quote the eminent Islamic theologian Abu Hamza al-Masri “There is no liquid loved by Allah more than the liquid of blood” “Whether you do it by the lamb, or you do it by a Serb, you do it by a Jew, you do it by any enemies of Allah,” he said. That drop of blood “is very dear.”
So whereas Christians give offerings of fruit at harvest festivals and lights at Christmas and Candlemas, and Buddhists give offerings of lights, flowers, fuits and water to the enightened beings, the jihadists give offerings of human blood and shattered body parts to their stone age tribal totem.
Islamic ritual sacrifice in London:
“A mother has been arrested after a four year old girl was found stabbed to death with her heart and other organs cut out and strewn around her flat.
Muslim mother Shayna Bharuchi, 35, was allegedly sitting in a her kitchen chanting verses of the Koran as her daughter Nusayba’s disembowelled corpse lay next to her.
The little girl’s heart and other organs were found in different rooms around the flat in Clapton, east London.
Police suspect she she carried out the killing as a religious offering as she listened to the Muslim holy book on an MP3 player at full volume.
Utterly and Implacably Alien
The Jihadist’s conceptions of the divine, spirituality, humanity, justice and ethics are totally irreconcilable with all civilised religions and standards of behavior.
