A young Muslim man identified as Yusuf Ibrahim, was reported by New York’s WABC-TV, Channel 7 in Jersey City, to have murdered, beheaded, and severed the hands of two Coptic Christians, recent immigrants from Egypt. Click here for television clip.
Such an attack coincides with the Holy Koran’s edict in 8:12b which states: “‘I will cast dread into the hearts of the infidels.’ Strike off their heads then and strike off from them every finger-tip.”
If looked at in context, what happened in New Jersey should come as no surprise. Jihadists’ persistent recruitment of American Muslims to engage in terrorism through websites, Facebook, and twitter is extraordinary. Consider a senior jihadi writer on a leading Islamist website suggesting that killing Westerners living in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, and the U.S. is necessary. He wrote that slaughtering people, decapitating their heads and hands “is the punishment of those who insult our prophet.” To review this report click here.
And in a recent tweet, the former Pakistani nuclear scientist, Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan glorifies terrorism and calls on the servants of Islam to initiate a worldwide Islamic government and attack Americans. Click here for this report.
Crucifixions are being reported out of Egypt as Christians are murdered and churches torched. Out of Libya reports show that an explosion rocked a Coptic Christian church near Misrata in which two were killed and others wounded. This attack marked the very location where U.S. backed rebels control a major checkpoint. And in Syria, Islamic rebels recently beheaded a Christian and fed his body to the dogs. (See my Facebook Post for 02.14.13). Elsewhere in places like Iran, the Sinai, (see my Facebook Post for 02.05.13), Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Indonesia, Sudan and Somalia, the victims of Islamic racism and human rights abuses abound.
Now a growing number of reports indicate that Islamic persecution is spreading in the United States. And what do we hear from President Obama, the leader of the free world?
Not a word.
