AL-QAEDA DECLARES JIHAD AGAINST INDIA


The Associated Press is reporting the following:


Al-Qaida declares holy war on India
By Aijaz Hussain, Associated Press Writer | The Boston Globe | June 9, 2007

SRINAGAR, India –A group claiming to represent the al-Qaida terror network declared a holy war on India over its partial control of the divided Himalayan region of Kashmir, Indian officials said Saturday.

A statement and video was sent Friday to the Current News Service, in Srinagar, the main city of India’s Jammu-Kashmir state, in which a masked man standing next to an automatic weapon read the declaration.

“We declare righteous holy war against India on behalf of God the great in which Jammu and Kashmir will be the launch pad for holy war in India,” said the statement signed by Abu Abdul Rehman al-Ansari, purportedly the chief of al-Qaida Fil Hind or al-Qaida in India.

Al-Qaida Fil Hand had not communicated anything since July of last year when they announced their establishment. The statement released is said to be 5-pages long and is being investigated by police who will also attempt to establish its veracity. The Director General of Police Gopal Sharma is advising people not to panic.

The statement by al-Qaida Fil Hand may prove the suspicions that the Islamic Militants fighting in the Western part of Kasmir are indeed connected to the terrorist Organization Al-Qaeda. Mentioned in the letter are reports of insurgencies in many areas around the world including; Iraq, Chechnya, Somalia, Palestine & Algeria. The statement also describes Al-Qaeda as a worldwide movement whose ultimate goal is to wipe out all borders and establish a worldwide ruling Islamic Caliphate.

The statement (from Al-Qaeda Fil Hand)…describes Al-Qaeda as a global Islamic movement “aimed at wiping out borders and leading the the establishment of an Islamic Caliphate.

In historic jihads, or holy wars, Islamic Militants (believing they are blessed by Allah, and that he is made happy killing “infidels” or anyone who is not Muslim, not the right kind of muslim, or followers of any other religion. The ‘jihadists’ target anyone who refuses to convert to Islam (the ONLY way to survive with even a small amount of so-called freedom, or if they somehow survive the upheaval one can look forward to serving a life of Dhimmitude within the Caliphate as a lesser person — subject to restrictions upon all manner of daily life, lesser standing in their “judicial” system, and a heavier tax burden.

Women, in the majority of Islamic cultures are kept as possession.  They are not allowed freedom of movement or association.  They have no real standing in a court of law, and there is no recourse for female victims — in some places rape victims are regularly killed for the crime of “adultery”, or victims of honor killings at the hands of relatives in an effort to preserve the family name against blemish. The requirement of wearing a hijab, or burka, increases the subjugation of women, and is indeed the most visible reminder of the type of life Muslim women are subject to.

If Al-Qaeda were to suceed and establish a Worldwide Islamic Caliphate, then it is likely that they would establish Sharia Law as the ‘justice method’. Under Sharia Law life becomes even more unbearable as not just women, but all minorities, gays, lesbians, Jews, & Christians (if they are left alive after the ‘change’), would be subject to the harshest of laws.  Even Muslims are not allowed some of the most basic of freedoms under these laws.  A worldwide government of this nature would be the fulfillment of a dream Hitler on crack would’ve loved.

These are the people that the U.S. and her allies are fighting against in Afghanistan. Our military, along with troops belonging to our allies, are engaged in fighting with the Taliban. It was recently found that the Country of Iran was supporting the Taliban by supplying weapons and ammunition. Officials from NATO have stated that they have caught Iranian operatives “red-handed” with arms bound for Taliban fighters. NATO officials stated that this was not a case of busting a black market arms dealer — it was a government supported military group that was moving the weapons.

“So they’ll bless and follow anyone who gives them justification for not thinking. Anyone who makes a virtue — a highly intellectual virtue — out of what they know to be their sin, their weakness, and their guilt.”

— Rand, Ayn, Atlas Shrugged

Our soldiers are also fighting against Al-Qaeda in Iraq. The U.S. has also reported proof that Iran is training and supplying these fighters with munitions as well. Contrary to the claims of the liberal anti-war activists in the U.S., the Iraqi citizens are not the ones that are perpetrating the vicious violence against the innocent in Iraq in some fight against a so-called ‘occupation’. Instead, they are the targets of these Islamic militants. The Iraqi citizens, emboldened by the U.S. presence is beginning to fight back. Something which was impossible to do under the thumb of Saddam Hussein. The people of Iraq who are trying to establish a safe and free country are the ones suffering in this war. But contrary again to Anti-War activists claims, the terrorism against these people is not the fault of the U.S. Military.

The people of Iraq have long been subject to the harsh regime of Saddam Hussein, as well as terrorists living among them supported by Hussein’s regime as can be seen in the documents faithfully translated by “JVeritas” and published at his blog: “Translating the Iraq Docs“. Indeed some of these documents show proof of not only a program to develop WMD, but also showing links between Saddam and Al-Qaeda.

Back in India and Kashmir, there has been sporadic violence perpetrated by Islamic Separatist Insurgents in the Himalayan land since 1989. The land was divided between Pakistan and India as the result of a war fought in 1948. Indian officials believe that these Islamic terrorists are responsible for a string of bombings across the country in recent years.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil
is for good men to do nothing.”

– The Right Honorable Edmund Burke ( 1729-1707)

It is a shame that in the 21st century we would be fighting such a group that targets innocent people based on their heritages and religions, specifically Jews who they have taught their children from a young age are in-human. Christians and others are regarded as what they call infidels, those who do not pray to Allah. There is no room for diversity in their wished for society, and genocide is not beyond their realm of thinking. This is also evidenced by the leader of Iran Ahmadinejad who has repeatedly called for the destruction of Israel and her people. Indeed these people are the same as those who supported Hitler in WWII. They have not stopped their wish to subject the world to their rule, they were not ‘taken out of power’ when soldiers from around the world destroyed the Nazi War Machine.

Our world may be headed for dark days as we contend with what can only be seen as evil. Those that decide stoning a woman to death for her being raped is justice, and using suicide bombings targetted at innocent civilians shopping with their children for food cannot be seen as fighting some moral war against “occupation”. We cannot allow these radical people who believe in an unbelievably warped world that harms everyone in it to take control. The people in this world who listen to sound bites, and are wrapped up in some intellectual excuse from taking the side of righteous people who are protecting their families from these terrorists will, in my opinion, be harming not only themselves but indeed all in the world.

“…I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of man fails and we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship – but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down – but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth I bid you; Stand, Men of the west.”

– Tolkein, J.R.R., “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King”

I pray for those in India and all the innocent in areas around our world, and the brave soldiers of the U.S. and her allies everywhere who are at threat from Al-Qaeda and all existing terrorist groups who claim their barbaric ways are sanctioned by their belief that Allah demands submission of all on the face of the Earth. There is no invitation to sit at the Lord’s Table through love, and example. There is only threats of death for failure to heed their wishes. We must stand up against evil of every kind in our world, and these terrorists ARE a threat to peaceful people everywhere. It is not wrong to defend yourself, especially when targetted for your religious or social beliefs. Their beliefs are not noble by any standard, and they must be defeated.
