Arrow Sunnis Murder 10 Shia Pilgrims with Car Bomb

Sunnis Murder 10 Shia Pilgrims with Car Bomb


http://www.muslimnews.co.uk/news/news.php?sub=2051


BAGHDAD, (Xinhua): A car bomb went off in the holy Shiite city of Karbala in central Iraq on Monday, killing at least 10 people and wounding 38 others, an Interior Ministry source said.

A booby-trapped car detonated in the morning at the eastern entrance of Karbala, some 110 km south of Baghdad, where dozens of vehicles were lining up for security checks outside the city, the source told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

There were Iranian pilgrims in the area but there was no immediate report about any casualty among them, the source said.

Hundreds of thousands of Iranian pilgrims flock to Iraq to visit holy Shiite shrines since the U.S.-led invasion in 2003 that toppled Saddam Hussein's Sunni regime and set up Shiite-led government.

Violence and sporadic high-profile attacks are still common in Iraqi cities as part of recent deterioration in security which shaped a setback to the efforts of the Iraqi government to restore normalcy in the country after violence-torn Iraq held parliamentary elections eight months ago.

Arrow Islamists Attack Mosque in Nigeria

Islamists Attack Mosque in Nigeria


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...111903487.html


MAIDUGURI, Nigeria -- Two men were killed and one child injured after suspected Islamic sect members ambushed a mosque during prayers in northeastern Nigeria in the first daytime attack by the group in a new wave of violence, a police spokesman said Friday.

Over 1,000 worshippers gathered at the Gomari Jumat mosque in Maiduguri on Friday afternoon when two men arrived by motorcycle and used Kalashnikov assault rifles to shoot and kill two men, police spokesman Lawan Abdullahi said. Stray bullets injured a child, who has been rushed to the local hospital for treatment, he said.

Abdullahi said that two prime suspects have been arrested, along with 11 others. The arrests were related to this attack and other killings in the area, he said.

Abdullahi confirmed that the men were suspected members of Boko Haram, a Muslim sect whose name means "Western education is sacrilege" in the Hausa language. Authorities accuse them of killing local leaders and policemen in recent weeks.

"These attacks and killings are taking a different dimension, as the suspects operate in broad day light in targeting and killing policemen, soldiers and innocent citizens," he said, adding that more suspects are going to be arrested as police hunt for more fleeing gunmen throughout Maiduguri.

Boko Haram has campaigned for the implementation of strict Shariah law. Nigeria, a nation of 150 million people, is divided between the Christian-dominated south and the Muslim north. A dozen states across Nigeria's north already have Shariah law in place, though the area remains under the control of secular state governments.

Boko Haram sect members rioted and attacked police stations and private homes in July 2009, sparking a violent police and military crackdown. In total, 700 people died.

The sect largely went underground after the attack, though rumors began to spread this summer that the group was rearming. In September, authorities say Boko Haram members engineered an attack on a federal prison in Bauchi that freed about 750 inmates - including imprisoned sect followers.

Arrow Afghanistan: Taliban bicycle bombers kill 4 civilians

Afghanistan: Taliban bicycle bombers kill 4 civilians


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/11/af...civilians.html


Imagine if the initiative and resourcefulness put into inflicting wave after wave of slaughter in Islamic jihad were instead put into something constructive. But, alas, there are priorities: Allah promises paradise to those who "slay and are slain" in his cause (Qur'an 9:111).

"Bicycle bombers kill 4 and wound 31 in east Afghanistan," by Rafiq Sherzad for Reuters, November 20:
MEHTAR LAM, Afghanistan (Reuters) - Taliban suicide bombers on bicycles killed four people and wounded 31 in eastern Afghanistan on Saturday, the latest attacks to underscore the challenges NATO leaders face as they plan an exit from the war.
One bomber detonated his explosives at a police checkpoint in Mehtar Lam, the provincial capital of Laghman province, with the second striking several hundred meters away, Laghman Governor Mohammad Iqbal Azizi told Reuters.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attacks, which came after a spike in violence over the past week and on the second day of a NATO summit in Lisbon. Leaders at the summit endorsed plans to start handing responsibility for security to Afghans next year and transfer control of the entire country by the end of 2014.
"We are not sure what the target of the second bomber was but we think he may have detonated his explosives prematurely," Azizi said. Earlier reports said the attacks had taken place in neighboring Alisheng district.
Where is the outrage against the Taliban's indiscriminate conduct in warfare?
All of the dead were civilians, Azizi said, and most of the victims had been riding in two motorized rickshaws, a common form of transport in rural areas that can carry many passengers.
Taj Mohammad, one of the rickshaw drivers, said he was on his way to the hospital when one of the bombs exploded.
"I had three female passengers and I was taking them to the hospital. When I was near to the hospital, I heard a huge bang. After that I did not know what happened, when I opened my eyes I was at the hospital," Mohammad told Reuters.
Blood-stained sandals could be seen lying near the blast sites and the windows of nearby shops had been shattered by the explosions, a Reuters witness said.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the hardline Islamist group had carried out the attack and that the target had been Afghan police and intelligence officials....

Arrow Swedish Muslim Murders Iraqi Policemen

Swedish Muslim Murders Iraqi Policemen


(Stockholm News)- The Swedish 36-year-old went to Iraq – to die as a martyr for the terrorist group The Islamic State of Iraq. In the city of Mosul, he blew himself up and killed several people. Back home in Sweden he left his wife and four children.

Information about the man was published on a Internet forum used by the terrorist network Al Qaeda, writes the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten. Also on other forums there are details on the 36-year-old, a Swedish citizen written on an address in a Stockholm suburb.

The man was born in 1974 in Tunisia and came to Sweden in 2000. The year before he married his Swedish wife abroad. In 2003 he became a Swedish citizen and started up a cleaning business which he ran until 2005.

According to newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, in 2008, he enlisted for The Islamic State of Iraq, a terrorist group supported by Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

In 2010, in the city of Mosul in northern Iraq, the father of four blew himself up in a suicide bomb attack which killed and injured several Iraqi policemen. The exact date is unclear.

He is now hailed as a martyr and hero for this deed on Islamic websites.

Back home in Sweden lives his wife and young children. His wife knew that her husband was in Iraq to fight in the war, she tells newspaper Expressen.

She was told that her man had died over the telephone.

“There was a man who called me. He said very short: ‘Your husband is dead. He has become a martyr.’ And hung up,” she told the newspaper.

“What he has done is right. I’m proud of him.”

Arrow Yemen Sunnis Take Out 17 Shias with Car Bomb

Yemen Sunnis Take Out 17 Shias with Car Bomb




SANAA — A car bomb struck a religious procession in a Shiite rebel bastion of north Yemen on Wednesday, killing 17 people and rattling a fragile truce with the government, a rebel spokesman and a tribal chief said.

"Seventeen people were killed and 15 wounded in the car bombing that targeted a Shiite procession in Al-Jawf province," rebel spokesman Mohammed Abdulsalam told AFP by telephone.

Abdulsalam said the attack targeted the faithful who were preparing to mark Al-Ghadeer, the day on which Shiites commemorate the anointment of Ali, one of the key figures of their faith, as successor to the Prophet Mohammed.

The anniversary has long been a source of contention between the Sunni and Shiite branches of the faith and a tribal leader in the province told AFP that the bombing was the work of a Sunni militant loyal to Al-Qaeda.

"A suicide bomber driving a four-wheel drive vehicle blew himself up alongside the procession," the tribal chief said.

"Among the dead was provincial tribal chief Hussein bin Ahmed bin Hadhban and his son," he added.

Other tribal sources warned that the death toll was likely to rise. One told AFP it "could reach 30."

Yemen is the ancestral homeland of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and has been a growing focus for the operations of his worldwide jihadist network sparking a sharp increase in US military aid.

The mountains in the west of Al-Jawf province and neighbouring Saada have been a stronghold of Zaidi Shiite rebels in the uprising they have been waging against the Sanaa government on and off for the past six years.

The office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) warned on Tuesday that there had been an "alarming escalation" in fighting in the region, despite a truce signed between the rebels and Sanaa in February.

The agency said that aid agencies and witnesses had reported that clashes between the rebels and pro-government tribes had erupted in Saada province on November 13.

"At least 20 people have been killed reportedly and others wounded over the past 10 days in the worst violence in northern Yemen since the signing of the ceasefire in February," UNHCR spokesman Andrej Mahecic said, speaking before the latest unrest.

The Yemeni army launched a major offensive against the rebels in August last year sparking a new round of conflict that spilled over the border of the Arab world's poorest country with oil-rich Saudi Arabia.

That fighting ended with an uneasy truce in February mediated by gas-rich Qatar.

But it has been repeatedly shaken by clashes between the rebels and pro-government tribes, and Qatar has been forced to undertake a series of mediation missions in a bid to broker implementation of the peace deal.

Clashes late last month killed two rebel fighters and a pro-government tribesman, a tribal chief said.

The rebels draw their support from among followers of the Zaidi branch of Shiite Islam, who are in the minority in mainly Sunni Yemen but form the majority community in the north.

There have been six rounds of fighting between the rebels and government troops since the uprising first erupted in 2004.

The UNHCR says that more than 300,000 people have fled the fighting, of whom just 20,000 have so far returned to homes in Saada province.

Pakistan: Misunderstanders of Islam murder 50 in twin jihad/martyrdom attacks


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/12/pa...m-attacks.html


Probably the perpetrators were misunderstanding the verse of the Qur'an that promises Paradise to those who "kill and are killed" for Allah (9:111) as meaning that Paradise was promised to those who "kill and are killed" for Allah. It is unclear how they got such a crazy idea.

"50 die in twin Taliban suicide attacks in Pakistan: official," from Trend, December 6:
Two suicide bombers Monday targeted a meeting of pro-government tribal elders in a Pakistani tribal region and killed at least 50 people, officials said.
Pakistani Taliban, the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), claimed the responsibility for the attacks, sources told Xinhua.

The bombers, riding motorcycles, struck the government office at Ghalanai, the headquarters of Mohmand tribal agency, regional official Shams-ul-Islam said.

Shams-ul-Islam said that over 100 people were present in the office of Assistant Political Agent, Roshan Khan, when the bombers detonated their bombs.

Information Minister of northwest Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa province Mian Iftikhar Hussain told reporters in Peshawar that 50 people were killed and 120 others were injured....

Arrow Jihad du Jour: Teen Bomber Takes Out Bus Stop-ful of Shias

Jihad du Jour: Teen Bomber Takes Out Bus Stop-ful of Shias
Islamabad - A teenage suicide bomber detonated his explosives near a minibus in a busy market in north-western Pakistan on Wednesday, killing at least 18 people and injuring around three dozen, police and health officials said.

The explosion took place at a bus stand next to Tirah Bazar market in Kohat district, some 70 kilometres south-west of Peshawar, the capital of the restive Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.

'This area is mainly dominated by Shiite Muslims who come from the nearby Orakzai tribal district for shopping,' said Jehangir Khan, a local police official. 'The bomber came and blew himself at the door of the van that was ready to depart for Orakzai.'

Roman Gull, an official at the District Headquarter Hospital, told the German Press Agency dpa by telephone that 15 bodies were moved there while three of the 36 injured succumbed to their injuries. 'One woman and a child are among the dead,' he added.

Television footage showed the minivan was destroyed by the blast.

The bomber was thought to have been 14 to 15 years old, the district's top civil administrator Khalid Khan told dpa. 'Between 8 and 10 kilograms of explosives were used in the suicide jacket.'

No one has claimed responsibility for the assault but Taliban militants, who are Sunni Muslims, have repeatedly targeted Shiites.

The bombing came on the first day of the Muslim month of Muharram, which is theologically highly significant for Shiites mainly because of the seventh-century death of the Prophet Mohammed's grandson, Imam Hussain, on the 10th day of the month.

Bashir Bilour, the senior minister in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, said 'We will try to maximize security during Muharram - but as far as suicide bombers are concerned they can reach any place and no one really can stop them.'
He said that the public supported the government, and 'want us to get rid of the terrorists.'

Last year on the 10th day of Muharram, which fell on December 28, a bombing targeted a Shiite procession in Pakistan's largest city of Karachi, killing more than 40 and injuring over 100 people.

Following the blast, riots erupted in the city and angry crowds set hundreds of shops and vehicles on fire.

Taliban have also targeted government officials and rival Sunni groups.
Twin suicide bombings at a government building where the leaders of an anti-Taliban militia were holding a meeting killed 43 people and injured around 100 in Mohmand tribal district on Monday. Seventeen members of the tribal police were among the dead.

As long as one Shiite exists in one part of the world, and one Sunni exists in another part of the world, Islam will never be a religion of peace. And that is only the 'tip of the iceberg' on that subject.

Arrow Shi’ite holy day is marred by attacks

Shi’ite holy day is marred by attacks




BEIRUT — Shi’ites across the Muslim world commemorated their most somber day of the year yesterday with solemn processions in which some beat their chests or cut themselves with swords and chains to mourn the death some 1,300 years ago of one of their most beloved saints.

Bombings in Iraq targeted Shi’ite pilgrims, killing two as they walked to holy sites. In Pakistan, 16 people were wounded, two critically, when an assailant threw an explosive device at a Shi’ite procession.

In Lebanon, Hezbollah leader Hassan Narsallah used an address marking the occasion, called Ashoura, to call for armed resistance against Israel and unity between Shi’ites and Sunnis.

In Afghanistan, President Hamid Karzai urged insurgents to embrace peace.

Ashoura is being observed amid tensions between Islam’s rival Sunni and Shi’ite sects.

Two suicide bombings Wednesday blamed on a radical Sunni group killed at least 39 people at a ceremony marking Ashoura near a Shi’ite mosque in southeastern Iran. The group — Jundallah, or Soldiers of God — claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted on its website.

Security was tight yesterday at Ashoura commemorations in Sunni-majority Pakistan, where a long-running sectarian conflict has gained traction in recent years because of the Sunni Taliban insurgency.

Shi’ite Muslim processions in major cities have sometimes been attacked by bombers.

To mark Ashoura, Shi’ites march in massive processions, beating their chests in mourning for the 680 AD martyrdom at Karbala, in present-day Iraq, of Imam Hussein, one of the sect’s most beloved saints and a grandson of the Prophet Muhammad.

Some Shi’ites cut themselves with swords or razors or lash their backs with razor-lined chains to draw blood, rituals that reflect the sect’s immersion in a narrative of mourning, martyrdom, and suffering.

Police were out in force in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city. As in Islamabad, Pakistan’s capital, people who wanted to join the main procession in the city of Karachi had to undergo body searches.

Thousands of people joined in, hoisting flags and banners as they mourned Hussein.

Authorities in Pakistan are on high alert for attacks on Shi’ites. But an assailant in the city of Peshawar near the Afghan border wounded 16 pilgrims when he threw an explosive device on a Shi’ite procession.

Iraqi Shi’ites did not make their customary annual pilgrimage to a holy shrine in southern Jordan this year, amid rising Sunni-Shi’ite Muslim tensions in the Arab world.

In Iraq, bombings in Baghdad and a small town to the north killed two pilgrims and wounded nine who were headed to ceremonies in Karbala, home of Imam Hussein’s shrine.

The killed and wounded were among hundreds of thousands who headed to Karbala to mark Ashoura.

Security forces created three layers of checkpoints outside the gold-domed Imam Hussein shrine in the city’s center to protect the pilgrims expected to converge there by Ashoura’s peak this morning.

Arrow Six Children Die as Sunnis Murder Shia Religious Festival

Six Children Die as Sunnis Murder Shia Religious Festival
Lahore (AsiaNews / Agencies) – Bloodshed has marked the Shiite festival of Ashura in Pakistan. Eight mortar shells exploded at a religious procession in Hangu, killing six people, including two children. At least eight others were injured. Hangu in northwestern Pakistan, is known because the two largest Muslim communities, the Shia and Sunni, have been protagonists in past conflicts and tensions.

The two mortar shells were fired from the district of Orakzai, which borders Hangu. Orakzai is located in the semi-autonomous tribal area that borders Afghanistan. The bullets hit two houses as the celebrations for Ashura started on Friday, the feast in which the Shiites remember the death (which they consider martyrdom) of Husayn ibn Ali, grandson of the Prophet Muhammad at the Battle of Karbala.

The attack was confirmed by police sources. "Mortar bombs were fired from Orakzai and hit two houses in Hangu. Six people were killed and eight wounded. Among those killed were two children and a woman, "said Fazal Naeem, a spokesman for security forces. In the same city 10 February 2006, 35 people died because of a attack on the Shiite Ashura procession.

I found this interesting analysis while viewing an investment ad on the 'Drudge' web site.

http://www.agorafinancial.com/report...?code=POSTLC00

1,354 Years in the Making
:

The "NEW" War
That Could Rocket Oil
Past $220 Before 2011

by Byron King, Editor

" ... If I'm right, as many as eight key Islamic countries are hurtling headlong toward a bloody "new" war — with each other — that's been FOURTEEN CENTURIES in the making.
This could begin as early as the next 12 to 18 months. And with no less than 66% of the world's key energy reserves smack dab in the crosshairs. ... "


" ... let's step back so I can explain how this "war" begins.
Long before $147 oil... before the war over 9/11 or the war in Afghanistan... before either war in Iraq, the 1979 Iran hostage crisis, or even the oil crisis of 1973.
All the way back to a lamb dinner, served up one evening in the year 629 AD...

The Murder That's About
to Change the World


Nobody could have known that the dinner they were about to eat would one day change history. Some say it was goat. Others say it was lamb.
Either way, it was poisoned.


And the guest of honor was Mohammed, the controversial founder of Islam.
It was just one bite, that's all it took. He tasted the poison and immediately spit it out. But it was too late. He would soon die, sparking a bitter and deadly divide.
See, when Mohammed died nobody could agree on who should take over...
And they've been killing each other as a result ever since.
On the one side, you've got the Sunni Muslims. They're the ones that run Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, and many of the other countries in the Middle East.
On the other, you've got the Shia Muslims. It's the Shia that run Iran. And now run Iraq, as well as Lebanon and Syria.
Think Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland... Serbs vs. Croats in Bosnia... or even the religious Thirty Years War that ripped apart Europe in the 16th century.
Only this Sunni-Shia split has built up pressure now for the last 1,354 years.
But it's only now that this pressure has found its ultimate release — with Iran driving a new Shia uprising smack dab in the middle of the most dangerous place on Earth — the oil-soaked Middle East.
Isn't the Middle East already a mess? Yes, it is.
What's different is that too many in the West... right up to the White House and the Pentagon... don't "get" just how deep this Islam divide could go or how far it could run.
Take a look at this map...



The Deadly Sunni-Shia Divide — 2010-2011

If it's black in this map, it's Shia ground. It's also mostly oil heartland
and some of the most strategic territory in the entire Middle East!


One terrorist with a grudge can do a lot of damage.
Iran, all by itself, could even be a deadly force.
But can you imagine what millions of Shiites with a 1,354-year old ax to grind could do?


The 162-Million-Man March

Nobody knows exactly how many Shia there are right now in the Middle East. That's because in all but four Middle Eastern countries, Sunni leaders don't bother to count.
Sunni schools teach that Shiites aren't real Muslims. Shias don't get a seat in government. They can't become judges or even testify in high courts. In Sunni-run Saudi Arabia, Shias and Sunni can't even marry.
For centuries, the Shia have been the underclass.
But now, for the first time in history, they see this as their chance to turn the tide. And how big a tide is it? Hands down, saber-rattling Iran has the most — 70 million Shia.
But then you've got the "liberated" Shia of Iraq — 22 million. Plus as many as 2 million Shia in Iran-backed Lebanon. And up to 4 million Shia in Iran's top ally, Syria.
Then you've got another 700,000 Shia in Kuwait... up to 500,000 Shia in Bahrain... up to 400,000 Shia in the United Arab Emirates... 300,000 Shia in Oman... and around 100,000 Shia in Qatar, according to the Pew Research Center in Washington.
On top of that, as many as 10 million Shia in Yemen... another 7 million Shia in Azerbaijan... and 11 million Shia in Turkey... not to mention the combined 30 million Shia in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Not all Shia want a revolution.
But out of between the 147 million to 162 million Shia spread from Pakistan to Lebanon and Azerbaijan to Yemen, enough do that this is the river of "Secret Revenge" and common blood running through the entire Middle East.
The Sunnis are worried.
Especially in Sunni-run Saudi Arabia.
And especially now.
Here's why...


"New" Oil War Flashpoint #1:
The Real Reason Iran
Wants the Bomb


Don't forget, Iran used to be Persia.
At one point Persia was the biggest and most powerful empire in history!
Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Egypt — even Israel — the Persians controlled them all. Along with all of Afghanistan and Pakistan and most of the oil-rich coast of the Caspian.
For 300 years, Persian armies held off the Roman Empire. Their scholars walked with Aristotle and Plato. And influenced Greek art.
It was the Persians who invented chess. And the windmill.
Not to mention bricks, algebra, trigonometry, and wine.
The bottom line is... no Empire forgets its past glory.
The Iranians resent losing theirs.
But now they see a chance to get it back.

The nuclear bomb? Tehran's crackpot leaders don't just want it to scare Israel. They want it so they can throw a dark shadow over their Sunni Arab neighbors, too!
Take a look at this...


Iran's First Move...

With total control of the Hormuz "oil chokepoint" in the Persian Gulf
and new power in "liberated" Iraq, the Iranians have foothold
for kicking off the long-awaited "Shia Revolution."


You'll notice two things.
First, you'll see how Iran's Shia influence has spilled across the border into southern Iraq. Southern Iraq is where you'll find six of Iraq's eight "Supergiant" oil fields. It's also where you'll find a key border with Shia Islam's mortal enemy — Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia is Sunni.
For eight years back in the 1980s, Saudi Arabia helped Iraq wage a bloody war against Iran. Along with other Sunni governments, the Saudis even gave Saddam over $47 billion to launch missiles and nerve gas attacks over the Iranian border.
Iran hasn't forgotten. Or forgiven.
(Imagine if Canada or Mexico had given money to Japan to help them bomb Pearl Harbor. Iran has waited to make the Saudis pay — and now they have their chance.)

************************************************** ***********

"Iran is clearly seen as a very serious threat by those on the other side of the Gulf front."

— Gen. David Petraeus,
Jan. 31, 2010

************************************************** ***********

The second thing you'll see in the map above is that Iran has almost total control over the Strait of Hormuz.
Hormuz is the tight waterway that connects the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean. Over 17 million barrels of oil have to pass through Hormuz every day.
That's 40% of all the oil shipped in the world.
And 90% of all the daily oil shipments from the entire Middle East.
With Hormuz alone, Iran could cripple the world overnight.
Today, Iran backs Shia militants in Iraq. They give them money and guns. They've even helped Shia politicians take over the Iraqi government. Why?
Because gaining control in Iraq takes the Iranians one step closer in their twisted plot for secret revenge. For another one of those steps, just look further south... to Yemen.

"New" Oil War Flashpoint #2:
Yemen's Ugly Secret


The Pentagon has just tripled its budget on Yemen.
Top U.S. General Patraeus just had a not-so-secret meeting with Yemen's president.
And our own State Department calls Yemen a “threat... to global stability.”
What gives?
Even ABC News just called Yemen the next "top target" in the terror war and a "near-perfect haven for terrorists." Obama just sent Yemen our troops, ships, and weapons.
Here's what's happening...

The Shia Revolution's Next New Front...

Yemen's on/off Shia revolution gives and "Gate of Tears"oil chokepoint could soon give Iran a strategic "backdoor" attack point into Saudi Arabia...

Yemen might be a failed country... with a collapsing government, a shrinking oil supply, an exploding population and not much of anything else but lawlessness and chaos.
But what Yemen does have is position.
It sits just on the tip of the Arab peninsula... south of another key Saudi border and on the coast of another key oil strait called Bab-el-Mandeb.
That name means the "Gate of Tears."
How Islam's Next "New"
World Oil War Will Begin
"Nature," goes the old saying, "abhors a vacuum."
For instance, when a failed assassin's bullet burst a blood vessel in Vladimir Lenin's brain in 1922... madman Josef Stalin quickly stepped in to fill the void. Likewise when the Weimar Republic collapsed in 1933... and Hitler stepped into power.
Today there's a new void about to be filled — in the ravaged Middle East — and the lethal force that's stepping up to fill it could plunge the entire region into a "new" Islamic war.
If that happens, nearly 66% of the world's oil supply will get caught in the crosshairs.
Soaring energy prices can hit almost every aspect of life... and pummel any economy... but there are ways you can protect yourself, financially. Read on to find out how...
And like Hormuz, most oil states on the Red Sea can't get a drop of oil out without shipping it through the Bab-el-Mandeb. Over 3.3 million barrels go through every day.
Blocking this chokepoint alone could slap a $30 "political premium" on the price of every barrel of oil... but there's an even bigger threat taking shape.
For the last six years, Yemen has fought a vicious and bloody war with Shia rebels. These rebels are poor. There's no way, says a Yemen general, these rebels "could fund and fight this war with pomegranates and grapes... no doubt there is Iranian support."
Could it be true? Absolutely.
Iran loves to buy loyalty.
Take the $1 billion Tehran now "donates" every year to Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon. Or the billions they gave Syria's Shia president to build cement factories, car factories, power plants, and storage silos.
In return, Iran gets Hezbollah's Arabic-speaking terrorists to run militant Shia training camps in Iraq. And gets Syria to distribute Iran's money and weapons to others in the Shia network.
The secret money Iran sends to Shia rebels in Yemen could soon have a payoff too — by opening up another route for "backdoor" Shia access into Saudi Arabia.
Yemen's rebels have already hit towns across the Saudi border. And the Saudis have hit back, losing dozens of troops in the process. We’re just in the first innings of this one.
How bad is it?
So far, 50 Saudi schools along the border have had to close. Another 240 border towns have already been evacuated. And Saudi jets have already dropped bombs in Yemen.
What exactly has the Saudis running scared?

Final Oil War Flashpoint #3:
Iran's Final Prize — Saudi Oil


Don't think for a minute that I think Iran's plot for "secret revenge" could succeed.
But the threat alone could be enough to kick oil much higher.
And sooner than you might think.
For instance...
  • Our CIA, Britain's M16, and other top spy agencies say Iran could have a working nuclear bomb as soon as April 2011...
  • The Times of London uncovered a confidential document that says Iran already has a "neutron initiator" ready to test. That's the part you need to trigger a warhead.
  • And Der Spiegel, the German magazine, says Iran may even have the tech and material to build a simple nuclear bomb before the end of THIS year.
But the Bomb is just a beginning.
Even if the go ahead to build a nuke never comes from Iran's top cleric, the more immediate danger is a wildfire of Shia-Sunni unrest... starting in Iran's new hotbeds of Shia support... and spreading across the rest of the Sunni-run oil states... with the richest oil fields in the world's richest oil nation as the final battleground.
Take a look at this last map...



The Final Battleground — Saudi Arabia!

Suddenly, Iran has its mortal enemy, Saudi Arabia, surrounded —
millions of Shia even live on top of the Saudis OWN biggest oilfields.


As you can see, Saudi Arabia looks like a sitting duck.
Iran has a Shia network that reaches from Afghanistan to Lebanon once again... more connections building along the Persian Gulf... Yemeni Shias to the south... and Shia connections along the oil rich Caspian Sea. You could see this spread to the nearly two million Shia that live and work on Saudi Arabia's oil fields very soon. Even though that's exactly what the Saudis — and our own Pentagon — hope will never happen.
As you read this, big and small Gulf states are piling up weapons, stocking anti-missile batteries, and sandbagging their oil terminals, ports, and water desalinization plants...
Abu Dhabi alone has already bought $17 billion worth of U.S. anti-missile hardware. And the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia just splurged on weapons, to the tune of $25 billion.
As you read this, our own F-16 fighter jets, Patriot missile systems, giant cruisers and up to 20,000 more U.S. troops are quietly digging in for an epic fight... that could spread past Iraq and Yemen... and even into Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain.
All to get ready for what could be the fight of a lifetime...


Say Hello to the "Jihad Generation"

It's not just our experts saying it.
Leaders in all three of America's biggest Middle East allied countries — Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia — claim the epic Sunni-Shia showdown is in the cards.
It could start from any one of the flashpoints I just named.
But no matter how it starts, Saudi Arabia is where it's most likely to end up. Why?
Not only is Saudi Arabia home to Mecca, Islam's holiest place... but it's also home to the corrupt and U.S.-allied Royal House of Saud, considered an insult to all Islam.
Think about it.
In a country where they'll cut off your hand for stealing and whip you for holding a glass of whiskey... Saudi princes gorge on cocaine and prostitutes, gambling, palaces, and more.
All while the vast Saudi underclass starves on just $6,000 per year and 30% unemployment. And as many as two million of that underclass is Shia. With a 1,354-year-old ax to grind and billions of dollars in oil revenues as the prize.
It's a near-perfect formula for a FULL-ON war.
And the fuse is already lit.
Iran is ready to assert its place in the world. Think Japan or Germany in the 1930s. The threat is there, it's large, and it's not going away anytime soon. ... "

************************************************** ***

This is not only about oil; remember that the rulers ('Twelvers') in Iran are actively seeking to pave the way for their 12 th Imam, Muḥammad ibn al-Ḥasan al-Mahdī.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_al-MahdiTwelver Shi'as cite various references from the Qur'an and reports, or Hadith, from Imam Mahdi and the twelve Shi'a Imams with regard to the reappearance of al-Mahdi who would, in accordance with Allah's command, bring justice and peace to the world by establishing Islam throughout the world.
Mahdi is reported to have said:
Shi'as believe that Imam al-Mahdi will reappear when the world has fallen into chaos and civil war emerges between the human race for no reason. At this time, it is believed, half of the true believers will ride from Yemen carrying white flags to Makkah, while the other half will ride from Karbala, in Iraq, carrying black flags to Makkah. At this time, Imam al-Mahdi will come wielding Allah's Sword, the Blade of Evil's Bane, Zulfiqar (Arabic: ذو الفقار, đū l-fiqār), the Double-Bladed Sword. He will also come and reveal the texts in his possession, such as al-Jafr and al-Jamia.
Shi'as believe that Jesus will also come, (after Imam Mahdi's re-appearance to follow him.) the Imam Mahdi to destroy tyranny and falsehood, and to bring justice and peace to the world.

Iraq bomb kills Shiite militia leader, wife and 3 children


BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi officials say a Shiite militia leader, his wife and three children have been killed in a bombing targeting their home south of Baghdad.

Babil province police spokesman Maj. Muthana Khalid says the explosion early Friday morning leveled the house in Haswa, some 30 miles (50 kilometers) south of the capital. Four people were also wounded in the blast.

A hospital official confirmed the casualties.
A local policeman, Abdul-Salam al-Maamouri, identified the dead man as a Mahdi Army leader.

The Mahdi militia forces are loyal to radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr. They often terrorized Sunni neighborhoods during the height of Iraq's sectarian fighting in 2006 and 2007, and the militia's fighters have been targets of retribution.

Arrow Suicide Bombing Kills at Least 41 in Pakistan

Suicide Bombing Kills at Least 41 in Pakistan



http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/12...est=latestnews
December 25, 2010

| Associated Press

KHAR, Pakistan (AP) -- A female suicide bomber detonated her explosives-laden vest in a crowded aid distribution center in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, killing at least 41 people and wounding dozens waiting for food stamps, officials said.


The attack appeared to be the first suicide bombing staged by a woman in Pakistan, and it underscored the resilience of militant groups in the country's tribal belt despite ongoing military operations against them.

The bomb hit the main city in Bajur, a region near the Afghan border where the military has twice declared victory over Taliban and al-Qaida insurgents. It also came a day after some 150 militants killed 11 soldiers in a coordinated assault in a neighboring region where the army also has carried out operations.

The bomber, dressed in a traditional women's burqa, first lobbed two hand grenades into the crowd waiting at a checkpoint outside the food aid distribution center in the town of Khar, local police official Fazal-e-Rabbi Khan said. The attacker then detonated her explosives vest, he said.

Khan said the victims were from various parts of the Bajur tribal region who gather daily at the center to collect food tokens distributed by the World Food Program and other agencies to conflicted-affected people in the region. The people were displaced by an army offensive against Taliban militants in the region in early 2009.

Islamist militants battling the state have attacked buildings handing out humanitarian aid in Pakistan before, presumably because they are symbols of the government and Western influence.

Local government official Tariq Khan said the blast also wounded 60 people wounded, some critically.

Although women rarely become suicide bombers in Pakistan, Tariq Khan and another local official, Sohail Khan, said an examination of the human remains has confirmed the bomber was a woman.

Akbar Jan, 45, who sustained leg wound in the bombing, said from his hospital bed that people were lining up for the ration coupons when something exploded with a big bang.

"We thought someone had fired a rocket," he told The Associated Press. He said within seconds he saw the ground strewn with the wounded.

"I realized a little later that I myself have suffered wounds," he said. "Everybody was crying. It was blood and human flesh everywhere."
Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani condemned the bombing and said Pakistanis are "united against them."

Bajur is on the northern tip of Pakistan's semiautonomous tribal belt, bordering Afghanistan and the so-called "settled" areas in Pakistan. It has served as a key transit point and hideout for al-Qaida and the Taliban.

Bajur and other parts of the tribal regions are of major concern to the U.S. because they have been safe havens for militants fighting NATO and American troops across the border in Afghanistan. The U.S. has long pressured Pakistan to clear the tribal belt of the insurgents.
The military first declared victory in Bajur following a six-month operation launched in late 2008. But the army was forced to launch a follow-up operation in late January this year and declared victory again about a month later. Still, violence has persisted in the region.

The army also has taken steps to clear Mohmand, a tribal region next to Bajur that also has witnessed militant activity. On Friday, however, around 150 insurgents attacked five security checkpoints in that region, killing at least 11 soldiers and wounding a dozen more in a show of their ongoing strength.

Does any organisation ( the U.N. ) keep an actual record of how many 'Moslems' were actually killed by each other.

The numbers must run in to the thousands ?

Although I guess that the left wing politically correct media/syncophants would not like this information to be readily available to us Western kaffurs.

It would be interesting to hear the response from the 'religon of the moon' adherents concerning the 'war within the war' of this Islamic inter-sect genocide, and how the 'martyrs' that caused the slaughter of in the main fellow Moslems, gained entrance in to 'Paradise', as the 'Qur'an' specifically prohibits 'Moslems' from killing fellow 'Moslems'.

Exclamation Misunderstanders of Islam murder nine in twin jihad-martyrdom suicide blasts

Iraq: Misunderstanders of Islam murder nine in twin jihad-martyrdom suicide blasts

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/12/ir...de-blasts.html


"As people gathered to observe the destruction" after the first bomb, "another suicide attacker detonated his explosive vest in their midst, said police and hospital officials."

Feel the love.

"Twin suicide blasts targeting government compound in western Iraq kill 9 people," by Hamid Ahmed for The Associated Press, December 27:
BAGHDAD - Two suicide bombers blew themselves up on Monday, killing nine people at the government compound in the provincial capital of Ramadi, local officials in the Iraqi province of Anbar said.
Insurgents frequently go after government targets in an effort to destabilize the U.S.-backed Iraqi authorities, as American troops prepare to leave by the end of next year.

The first blast occurred when a suicide bomber drove a minibus packed with explosives into the entrance of the main government compound of the city, official spokesman Mohammed Fathi said.

As people gathered to observe the destruction, another suicide attacker detonated his explosive vest in their midst, said police and hospital officials.

The officials said in addition to the nine dead, another 43 people were injured by the blasts. Consecutive blasts meant to catch bystanders and rescue personnel have become a hallmark of al-Qaida's tactics in Iraq in the past few years. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the double attack....

Apparently the bomber somehow got the crazy idea that the Qur'an's promise of Paradise to those who "kill and are killed" for Allah (9:111) meant that Paradise was promised to those who "kill and are killed" for Allah.

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - A suicide car bombing in the heart of the southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Monday killed three and wounded 26 people, most of them policemen, authorities said.

South Afghanistan, a traditional Taliban stronghold, has seen some of the worst fighting this year between the militants and foreign and Afghan troops. President Hamid Karzai issued a statement condemning the attack.

The car exploded at midday near a police compound and a branch of Kabul Bank in the crowded center of the city, said Noor Mohammad, a policeman who was guarding the bank....

Killings of newborn babies on the rise in Pakistan
By Hasan Mansoor, AFP January 18, 2011


In this photograph taken on December 6, 2010 a Pakistani volunteer gives the final bath to the corpse of a infant in a private charity's morgue in Karachi. In the conservative Muslim nation, where the birth of children outside of marriage is condemned and adultery is a crime punishable by death under strict interpretations of Islamic law, infanticide is a crime on the rise.

Photograph by: RIZWAN TABASSUM, AFP/Getty Images

KARACHI, Jan 18, 2011 - The lifeless bodies of two tiny babies are being given their final bath before burial in Karachi, after they were left to die in the southern Pakistani city's garbage dumps.
"They can only have been one or two days old," says volunteer worker Mohammad Saleem, pointing at the two small corpses being gently washed by his colleagues at a charity's morgue.
In the conservative Muslim nation, where the birth of children outside of marriage is condemned and adultery is a crime punishable by death under strict interpretations of Islamic law, infanticide is a crime on the rise.
More than 1,000 infants - most of them girls - were killed or abandoned to die in Pakistan last year according to conservative estimates by the Edhi Foundation, a charity working to reverse the grim trend.
The infanticide figures are collected only from Pakistan's main cities, leaving out huge swathes of the largely rural nation, and the charity says that in December alone it found 40 dead babies left in garbage dumps and sewers.
The number of dead infants found last year - 1,210 - was up from 890 in 2008 and 999 in 2009, says the Edhi Foundation manager in Karachi, Anwar Kazmi.
Tragic tales abound.
Kazmi recounts the discovery of the burnt body of a six-day-old infant who had been strangled. Another child was found on the steps of a mosque having been stoned to death on the orders of an extremist imam who has since disappeared, he says.
"Do not murder, lay them here," reads a sign hanging outside the charity's Karachi base where it has left cradles in the hope that parents will abandon their unwanted children there, instead of leaving them to die.
"People leave these children mostly because they think they are illegitimate, but they are as innocent and loveable as all human beings," says the charity's founder, well-known humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi.
Most children found are less than a week old.
Khair Mohammad, 65, works as a watchman in the charity's vast graveyard in the city outskirts. It is dotted with tiny unnamed graves.
"We acquired this land to bury children after another plot was filled with hundreds of bodies," he says.
The death toll is far worse among girls, says manager Kazmi, with nine out of ten dead babies the charity finds being female.
"The number of infanticides of girls has substantially increased," Kazmi says, a rise attributed to increased poverty across the country.
Girls are seen by many Pakistanis as a greater economic burden as most women are not permitted to work and are considered to be the financial responsibilty of their fathers, and later their husbands.
A Pakistani family can be forced to raise more than one million rupees (11,700 dollars) to marry their daughter off.
Edhi says that up to 200 babies are left in its 400 cradles nationwide each year and that it handles thousands of requests for adoption by childless couples.
Abortion is prohibited in Pakistan, except when the mother's life is at risk from her pregnancy, but advocates say that legalisation would reduce infanticide and save mothers from potentially fatal back-street terminations.
According to Pakistani law, anyone found to have abandoned an infant can be jailed for seven years, while anyone guilty of secretly burying a child can be imprisoned for two years. Murder is punishable with life imprisonment.
But crimes of infanticide are rarely prosecuted.
"The majority of police stations do not register cases of infanticide, let alone launch investigations into them," said lawyer Abdul Rasheed.

It is pretty common. They even kill from the same sect. Google Blood Telegram of 1971. In this incident, 3 million Bangladeshis were massacred by Pakistani soldiers. The massacred had many Buddhists/Hindus also but more than 90% of the 3 million were Muslims.

Arrow Sunni jihadists bomb Shi'ite funeral, murdering 41

Iraq: Sunni jihadists bomb Shi'ite funeral, murdering 41


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/01/ir...dering-41.html


Shi'ites then began stoning Iraqi security forces. Sunni-Shi'ite Jihad Update: "Bomb strikes funeral, killing 41 in Baghdad," by Hamid Ahmed for Associated Press, January 27:
BAGHDAD - A car bomb ripped through a funeral tent in a mainly Shiite area of Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 41 people and prompting scuffles between police and Iraqis angry about security failures.

The blast and three other small bombings Thursday were the latest in more than a week of attacks that have killed more than 200 people, raising fears about an uptick in violence as the U.S. military prepares to withdraw from the country.

The violence has mainly targeted the majority Shiite community and Iraqi security forces, posing a major challenge to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and his fragile coalition government that was seated last month.

The car that exploded about 2 p.m. Thursday had been parked with the vehicles of other mourners, several yards (meters) away from the funeral tent, so it wouldn't raise suspicion, police said. Several other cars were set ablaze and nearby houses were damaged.

At least 41 people were killed and 75 wounded, according to police and hospital officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to release the information.

Young men furious over the lack of security began pelting Iraqi security forces at the scene with stones.

Anger was still high three hours later, and Iraqi troops fired in the air to disperse a crowd of residents gathering for a demonstration against the failure to prevent the bombings. Iraqi helicopters buzzed overhead.....

The current wave of attacks began Jan. 18 with a suicide bombing that killed 65 police recruits in Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit, followed by two blasts on subsequent days against two security force headquarters in Baqouba that killed a total of 10 people.

The Islamic State of Iraq, an al-Qaida front group, claimed responsibility for the three attacks north of Baghdad.
Separate car bombings targeting Shiite pilgrims mourning the death of one of their most beloved saints also killed 82 people, while 22 others were killed in sporadic violence elsewhere....

Yemen: Al-Qaeda commander declares jihad against Shi'ites


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/01/ye...t-shiites.html


He says it's in retaliation for an earlier Shi'ite attack, which is par for the course: jihadis today always frame their attacks as defensive. This is most likely because in the absence of a caliph, there is no Sunni authority authorized to declare offensive jihad.

Note also that Iran's Ahlul Bayt News Agency, which is run exclusively by Muslims, has no problem translating jihad as "holy war." Apparently the "jihad does not mean holy war" memos that circulate among Islamic spokesmen in America don't make their way to Tehran.

"Yemen al-Qaeda Terrorist commander declares war against Shiite Muslims," from the Ahlul Bayt News Agency, January 29:
Leader of al-Qaeda militants in Yemen declared "Jihad" against the Houthi-led northern Shiite fighters, in an audio message posted on the internet by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) on Friday.

Yemen al-Qaeda Terrorist commander declares war against Shiite Muslims(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Leader of al-Qaeda militants in Yemen declared "Jihad" against the Houthi-led northern Shiite fighters, in an audio message posted on the internet by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) on Friday.

"To our Wahhabi fellows in northern Yemeni provinces of Saada, Al- Jouf and Amran, we (AQAP) announced jihad (holy war) against Houthi Shiites" Saeed Ali al-Shihri, deputy leader of the Yemen-based AQAP.

"The jihad against northern Shiites has been declared since the implementation of the AQAP's twin killed car bombing attacks against innocent convoys of the Shiite followers in northern provinces of Al-Jouf and Saada on Nov. 24 and Nov. 26 of the last year," he said.

In the 17-minute audiotape, the Saudi fugitive al-Shihri justified his group's war against the Shiite fighters by claiming that the sectarian-motivated Houthis attacked and displaced many Wahhabi militants in the north.

Last December, the Wahhabi-devoted AQAP claimed responsibility for twin suicide car bombings against convoys of the Shiite fighters' followers in northern provinces of Al-Jouf and Saada on Nov. 24 and Nov. 26, 2010, which left over than 90 Shiite followers martyred, including the group's Shiite spiritual leader Bader al-Deen al- Houthi....
