Islamic group urges forest fire jihad

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.

    “Burning the infidel’s forrests just like they do in our lands”…right…all those rich old-growth forrests in the middle east…and in central Africa…and…you get the picture. Apparently irony is a western concept.

    You know David, I thought the same thing. Forrests? In the Middle East?? Yeah Ok, time for your medicine Akmed. One hour of yard time and back to the padded room you go!

    Raise the issue of Dr. Afia :Make a difference Dr. Afia Siddiqui, was arrested along with her three children by a Pakistani intelligence agency in early 2003 and has been missing since then. American and Pakistani intelligence agencies confirmed that she had been arrested in connection with Al-Qaeda, the terrorist organisation run by Osama Bin Laden. However, later both agencies denied that she had been arrested. Dr. Afia’s whereabouts remain unknown but it is suspected that she is being held in an American detention centre. CASE DETAILS: The press reports claimed that Dr. Afia had been picked-up by Pakistani intelligence agencies while on her way to the airport and initial reports suggested that she was handed over to the American Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). At the time of her arrest she was 30 years and the mother of three sons the oldest of which was four and the youngest only one month. A Monthly English magazine of Karachi in a special coverage on Dr. Afia reported that one week after her disappearance, a plain clothed intelligence went to her mother’s house and warned her, “We know that you are connected to higher-ups but do not make an issue out of your daughter’s disappearance.” According to the report the mother was threatened her with ‘dire consequences’ if she made a fuss. Whilst Dr. Afia’s whereabouts remain unknown, there are reports of a woman called ‘Prisoner 650′ is being detained in Afghanistan’s Bagram prison and that she has been tortured to the point where she has lost her mind. Britain’s Lord Nazeer Ahmed, (of the House of Lords), asked questions in the House about the condition of Prisoner 650 who, according to him is physically tortured and continuously raped by the officers at prison. Lord Nazeer has also submitted that Prisoner 650 has no separate toilet facilities and has to attend to her bathing and movements in full view of the other prisoners. Also, on July 6, 2008 a British journalist, Yvonne Ridley, called for help for a Pakistani woman she believes has been held in isolation by the Americans in their Bagram detention centre in Afghanistan, for over four years. “I call her the ‘grey lady’ because she is almost a ghost, a spectre whose cries and screams continues to haunt those who heard her,” Ms Ridley said at a press conference. Ms Ridley, who went to Pakistan to appeal for help, said the case came to her attention when she read the book, The Enemy Combatant, by a former Guantanamo detainee, Moazzam Begg. After being seized in February 2002 in Islamabad, Mr Begg was held in detention centres in Kandahar and Bagram for about a year before he was transferred to Guantanamo Bay. He recounted his experiences in the book after his release in 2005. Mr. Imran Khan, leader of Justice Party (T.I) suspects that prisoner 650 is the Dr. Afia Siddiqui and USA and Pakistani authorities are hiding facts of ‘Prisoner 650′. SUGGESTED ACTION: Please write to the relevant authorities listed below and request them to investigate immediately. Dr. Afia’s whereabouts must be confirmed and the safety of her children assured. Regardless of whether Dr. Afia is Prisoner 650 or not the fact is that she has been missing, along with her children for five years. The governments of the USA and Pakistan at first confirmed her arrest and then denied it. Both governments have a duty to report any information they might have on the matter. SAMPLE LETTER: Dear________, PAKISTAN/USA: A lady doctor is missing with her three children since five years after her arrest Name of victim: Ms. Dr. Afia Siddiqui and her three children Block 7, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Karachi, Sindh province The units of the alleged perpetrators: Intelligence agencies of Pakistan and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI-US) I am shocked to know that Dr. Afia Siddiqui, a Pakistani citizen has been missing with her three children since April 2003, after her arrest by intelligence agencies of Pakistan. The whereabouts of children is also unknown, which is a serious act of negligence on the part of the government with regard to its responsibility to protect the citizen of the Pakistan. According to the information I have received Dr. Afia was picked-up by Pakistani intelligence agencies while on her way to the airport and initial reports suggested that she was handed over to the American FBI. A few days later an American news channel, NBC, reported that Afia had been arrested in Pakistan on suspicion of facilitating money transfers for terror networks of Osama Bin Laden. On April 1, 2003, a small news item was published in an Urdu daily with reference to a press conference of then Interior Minister Faisal Saleh Hayat when, in reply to a question regarding the arrest of Dr. Siddiqui, he said she has not been arrested. But in another report the minister for interior said,”You will be astonished to know about the activities of Dr. Afia.” A weekly English magazine in its special coverage on Dr. Afia reported that after one week of the incident, an intelligence agency official, a motor cyclist in plain clothes, came to the house of her mother and warned “We know that you are connected to higher-ups but do not make an issue out of her daughter’s disappearance” and threatened her with dire consequences. After this development the whereabouts of Dr. Afia and her children are yet unknown. What is also of grave concern to me is that when she was arrested by Pakistani intelligence authorities she was handed over to American intelligence agencies without being tried in Pakistan, I do not find any rationale in sending her along with her children to other country when there are Pakistani laws to deal with the suspected terrorists. It is known that President Musharraf handed over 600 suspected terrorists to America. There are reports that in Afghanistan’s prison of Bagram there is a woman prison known as Prisoner 650 and that she has been severely tortured. It is also widely suspected that Prisoner 650 is Dr. Afia Siddiqui. This prisoner has reportedly lost her mind due to constant rape and ill treatment. I remind you that this is the duty of coalition government under Prime Minister Mr. Yousaf Raza Gillani to probe cases of those Pakistani suspected terrorists who have been handed over to foreign forces in the name of war on terror. The government should also inform Pakistani citizens about the whereabouts of Dr. Afia Siddiqui and her children. I also demand that government should also ensure the safety of her children.

    Yikes , i live in the australian bush!  Dont the fools know, we light them ourselves?  lol.   They have no brains and are happy without them!
    I dont think Australians will be as tolerant as americans with these imbeciles.
    They will be more like the italians.

    • Dave

      You know, I've always suspected that in California

    • Dave

      That last reply was for JEWHAWK, my bad.
      What is going on in Italy? All I've heard of is the Muslim atrocities, like the girl who was killed by her father and uncle for wearing low slung jeans,smoking cigarettes, and living with a guy. And there was a time when they all decided to have their prayers in front of a church.

  • Tonto (USA)

    alfalfa, Don’t get the idea that all Americans willingly tolerate the shenanigans of the rag-heads.  I’ve seen muz pukes get their asses severely kicked for slights, usually involving the way they try to treat American women.  One big brawl was out at Camp Dearborn between local boys and ‘rabs from Dearborn.  I’ve seen them getting lessons elsewhere also, I’ve even been involved in a couple. (Dearborn is outside Detroit, Michigan…..it’s the home of Ford Motor Company.)

    In Cronulla beach, australia, same thing, the lebanese muslims go out of their way to heckle non muslims girls, calling them whores etc.  A riot soon began.
    And guess what cronulla council has done since……….put signs all over the place, saying ‘ dogs welcomed on this beach’.
    I though that was pretty clever , muslims fear dogs lol.

  • Chris

    Nice work by the Cronulla Council.  We need to fight back how ever we can within the law.

  • jennyjen

    Points on the board for the Cronulla Council! I’d much rather share a beach with a dog than with Muslims anyday

    Now the wildfires who raged in California in 2008 are making sense…They did that in Israel MANY TIMES.

  • Dave

    Well, look at Australia now.

  • Beej

    Yes, Dave, almost 200 people died in those fires over the past week. God alone knows the cost paid by the local wildlife. It would not surprise me in the least if Muslims started some of the fires: they'd consider themselves to be heroes for doing so.

  • straliangirlalfalfa

    They have a few suspects, im praying to god (oops i forgot i dont pray to a god) that the perpertrators dont have middle eastern names. How weird is that ,hoping the perpertrators are just boys with firefighting fantasies and not of religious orientation.

  • Beej

    Actually, Straliangirl, I disagree with you, although I confess to being utterly Machiavellian in doing so. If it turns out that Muslims started these fires Australians are going to be very angry, and you know as well as I that an angry Aussie is a fearsome thing. The cause of Islam will take a terrible pounding in this wonderful country of ours, and might even inspire other countries to put the brake on the spread of the cancer.
