I guess they have figured out that trees are the only thing they can wage jihad on and be victorious.
AUSTRALIA has been singled out as a target for “forest jihad” by a group of Islamic extremists urging Muslims to deliberately light bushfires as a weapon of terror.
US intelligence channels earlier this year identified a website calling on Muslims in Australia, the US, Europe and Russia to “start forest fires”, claiming “scholars have justified chopping down and burning the infidels’ forests when they do the same to our lands”.
The website, posted by a group called the Al-Ikhlas Islamic Network, argues in Arabic that lighting fires is an effective form of terrorism justified in Islamic law under the “eye for an eye” doctrine.
The posting — which instructs jihadis to remember “forest jihad” in summer months — says fires cause economic damage and pollution, tie up security agencies and can take months to extinguish so that “this terror will haunt them for an extended period of time”.
“Imagine if, after all the losses caused by such an event, a jihadist organisation were to claim responsibility for the forest fires,” the website says. “You can hardly begin to imagine the level of fear that would take hold of people in the United States, in Europe, in Russia and in Australia.”
With the nation heading into another hot, dry summer, Australian intelligence agencies are treating the possibility that bushfires could be used as a weapon of terrorism as a serious concern.
An eye for an eye. Fair enough. Then by all means the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are justified, according to these muslim nutjobs. After all, it was muslim jihadists who drove a truck bomb into a US Embassy and UNIFIL contingent of American troops. It was muslim jihadists who took an Embassy hostage in Tehran and held civilians for 444 days. It was muslim jihadists who invaded Europe, occupied for 700 years and were expelled, then tried again on 9/11/1683 at Vienna. After that was muslim pirates who attacked American and European merchant vessels in the 1780′s. So by their own logic we are justified in destroying them utterly and sending them on their way to oblivion. An eye for an eye.
