Ramadan Trophies for the Religion of Peace

Beheaded girls were Ramadan 'trophies'

THREE Christian high school girls were beheaded as a Ramadan "trophy" by Indonesian militants who conceived the idea after a visit to Philippines jihadists, a court heard yesterday.

The girls' severed heads were dumped in plastic bags in their village in Indonesia's strife-torn Central Sulawesi province, along with a handwritten note threatening more such attacks.

The note read: "Wanted: 100 more Christian heads, teenaged or adult, male or female; blood shall be answered with blood, soul with soul, head with head."

Javanese trader Hasanuddin appeared in Jakarta Central Court yesterday charged with planning and directing the murders in October last year. He faces a death sentence if found guilty under anti-terrorism legislation.

Hasanuddin allegedly returned from a visit to members of Philippines Islamist group the Moro Islamic Liberation Front with tales of how that organisation regularly staged bombings to coincide with Lebaran, the festival that ends the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. He later spoke with a preacher in Poso, Central Sulawesi, about whether such a plan could work in Indonesia, but expressed doubt about whether it was appropriate.

However, after further discussion with friends, he decided that beheading Christians could qualify as an act of Muslim charity.

The Religion of Peace is the Religion of Jihad is the Religion of Cowards. But even their brave, manly plan to target these schoolgirls did not go as planned, inshallah:

The attackers cleanly beheaded three of the students but a fourth, Noviana Malewa {pictured above - ed.}, escaped after a struggle and ran away screaming. Her attackers gave chase but were unable to catch her.

Completely ignoring all of human history since the 8th Century, the Democrats mantra in 2006 was that the on-going threat from Islamic terrorism was "Because of Iraq." But it's not. The on-going threat from Islamic terrorism is Because of Islam. This may seem entirely obvious to some people (but obviously not enough to win an election...). If you disagree, pick up a history book or two. Politically and multiculturally incorrect though it may be to point out (and criminal, in some areas of the world, including the EU) , Islam has always had bloody borders.
