Islamic State Puts Out Clarion Call To Members/Sympathizers Urging Acts Of Terror Against Westerners/Christians During The Christmas Holiday — Particular Threat To Christmas Markets — Issue Posters/Post Images Of Santa Kneeling With Hands Tied In Front Of Jihadist
As I have written many times, we are cowards in the West, because…..good men know what needs to be done to eradicate this scourge from humanity. We must kill the philosophy of militant jihadism, as we did with Nazism nearly 73 years ago with the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials. We must put the key leadership of the Islamic State and militant Jihadism on trial for Crimes Against Humanity — a 21st century version of Nuremberg — except this time — use social media to broadcast the proceedings to the world. Granted, it would be preferable if such a trial were led by Saudi Arabia and the Islamic world. But, I fear we will be waiting a long time for that to occur. Obviously, a ‘Reformation in the Islamic Church — and the good guys winning — could also be a solution to strangling this odious/poisonous ideology; but, how likely is a reformation in the Islamic Church? And, how do we know the ‘good guys’ would prevail? That’s why I favor a War Crimes Trial; but, what do I know.
What I do know: Tariq Tahir posted an online article in the November 25, 2017 edition of the Daily Mail, that “the Islamic State has issued a chilling threat to attack Christmas markets in Britain, France, and Germany;” and, posted images of Santa Claus in handcuffs on his knees/London’s Regent Street as a hooded ISIS member,” towers over him. The militant Islamic group is naturally, taking full use and advantage of social media in getting this clarion call out quickly and widely. Mr. Tahir adds that “a message in English, French, and German, says ‘Soon, on your holidays,’ with the clear implication that London can expect a terrorist attack [sometime during] over the [Christmas] holiday season.”
“The image was intercepted by BlackOps Cyber, a darknet intelligence company,” Mr. Tahir wrote. According to the company, it was the first time they had seen this particular image. “The image is from a chat group called, [the] Army of Mujahideen; and, appears to be designed by a user called Dr. Almani,” Mr. Tahir added. “Another image shows a blood soaked hand gripping a knife, Photoshopped onto a poster for Paris Christmas markets, which has the Eifle Tower in the background.”
“The emergence of the images comes after German police [recently] arrested six alleged ISIS plotters amid fears they were planning an attack on a Christmas market on the anniversary of last year’s atrocity in Berlin,” Mr. Tahir noted. “The Syrian men were arrested during raids involving 500 officers in the towns of Kassel, Hanover, Essen, and Lepsig.” German prosecutors say that the group were planning to use ‘weapons and explosives,’ in a coordinated attack.
This latest threat comes in the aftermath of the worst terrorist attack in Egypt’s history, when more than 300 Egyptian worshipers, including 27 children were killed after 30 masked, armed ISIS terrorists used burned out cars to trap worshipers outside the al -Rawdah mosque – in Bir al-Abed, near El-Arish on the Sinai Peninsula. This was a mosque with mostly Sufi Muslims, the poets, and the artists of the Islamic faith, who are also the most tolerant. These are the kind of Muslims who ISIS detests….and wants kill.
The attack was well-planned, methodical, and lasted some twenty minutes, as ISIS terrorists slaughtered the trapped worshipers. ISIS is learning from all of these attacks; and, they’re getting better at killing larger numbers of innocent civilians — and, especially targeting venues where there are large gatherings of civilians.
They aren’t going to stop; and, killing all of them is going to take much longer than we can tolerate. As I wrote at the opening, we have to kill the philosophy, as we and the allies did to Nazism at the end of WWII. That, or a reformation in the Islamic Church where the good guys win. But, the Islamic community has thus far, shown no signs or willingness to go down that path. If we do not kill this philosophy, by putting militant Islam/militants on trial, these darker angels of our nature will continue to attract sympathizers and followers — and replenish their pool of thugs, degenerates, and losers.
And, al Qaeda will no doubt become jealous and is certain to join the ‘party.’ V/R, RCP, fortunascorner.com
