Weeks after jihadist Syrian rebels attacked the Christian village of Ma’loula, Islamist militias have attacked the historic Syrian Christian town of Saidnaya, according to a Fides news agency report.

“This is banditry, but it is also a vendetta against Christians,” said a religious-order priest. “They are targeted attacks that have the effect of creating confusion and fear among civilians.”

Esta noticia es de hace unos días, pero merece la pena bloguear sobre ella:

At least 142 corpses were found in a northeastern Nigerian town after an attack by suspected members of the Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, local officials said.

“Yesterday alone 87 corpses were evacuated from the road and bushes,” Saidu Yakubu, a spokesman for the Borno State Environmental Protection Agency, said yesterday in a statement handed to reporters in Benisheik town.

Suspected militants dressed in military uniforms attacked the town on Sept. 17, burning at least 100 houses and shops in the raid, according to Garba Ngamdu, the head of labor affairs in the Borno state government. The raid followed a Sept. 7 attack on the town that left 11 civilians dead, according to local residents.

Los rebeldes sirios a los cristianos de Malula: “o os convertís al Islam o os decapitamos”

Todo muy alianzador:

Another Christian resident said: ‘I saw the militants grabbing five villagers and threatening them and saying, “Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded”.’

Another said one church had been torched, and gunmen stormed into two other churches and robbed them.

The beautiful mountain village, 25 miles from Damascus, is one of the few places in the world where residents still use the ancient language of Aramaic, which was spoken by Jesus and his disciples.

Además, en el ataque consideraron a una iglesia “un botín de guerra”:

During the storming of armed Islamists into Maaloula, in an attack they dubbed a “conquest” in reference to the era of Islamic conquests, they vandalized the church, considering it a “war prize.” This is also a tribal tradition that existed prior to Islam and was practiced by Muslims for a while during their wars to bribe tribesmen and talk them into accepting the idea of fighting Jihad with the prophet. Later on, the Prophet Muhammad set war standards, prohibiting the killing of captives, the burning of trees and ensuring the preservation of sacred sites of other religions. Sigue leyendo

Detienen a tres terroristas de Al-Qaeda en Yemen cuando iban a cometer un atentado

Jihadistas belgas en Siria

Meanwhile the war in Syria had been raging for about a year and a half. Reports started appearing claiming European Muslims were fighting in Syria. It would only take a couple of months before the first Belgian and Dutch jihadis were identified. On February 16, 2013 another horrible video from Syria (first published by ‏@hlk01) was posted. There was Dutch heard in the video. Later that week, the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, published an article claiming that Dutch security forces (AIVD) were already investigating the matter.

On March 7, Eurojust first confirmed that there were Belgians amongst the European jihadis in Syria. On March 15 and 16, 2013 Harald Doornbos and myself found three YouTube videos (originally posted by Halab News Network and since deleted by Google) in which I clearly heard some Flemish guys. Belgian media later picked up on this story. Later, the parents of Brian De Mulder and Jejoen Bontinck recognized their sons in the videos. The Belgian far right extremist party Vlaams Belang succeeded in luring in one of the families for their own propaganda and the father of Bontinck even went to Syria in search for his son. They all blamed Sharia4Belgium.

Since then reports about the Belgian jihadis appeared weekly. On April 10, 2013 the Belgian weekly magazine Knack published an article on the Belgian jihadis in Syria, claiming that already 12 of them were killed (these reports as of today remain unconfirmed). Here is an overview of those who died fighting in Syria or those who got arrested trying to get there.

On the 22nd of June, Belgian newspapers De Standaard and De Morgen gave an extensive overview of the developments concerning Belgian jihadis in Syria. This is all because of the announcement of the death of ‘Abd ar-Rahmān Ayāshī, a French-Syrian who had left Belgium back in 2012 after he was sentenced to 8 years in jail. ‘Abd ar-Rahmān Ayāshī became a battalion-leader of Suqūr as-Shām, leading about 600 in battle.

Musulmán californiano, jihadista en Siria

An American from California traveled to Syria to join the jihadist rebels in the civil war fight against the Bashar Assad Syrian regime. He tells the interviewer, “What America hates, I love. What they love I hate. They love Dunya (meaning earthly life). I hate the Dunya.” He continues, “They love life. I love death.”

El Frente Al Nusra reivindica el atentado que mató a Gobernador sirio

El Frente Al Nusra, el grupo rebelde que representa a Al Qaeda en Siria, reivindicó hoy el atentado con bomba que mató a un gobernador en la provincia de Hama y lo calificó como una “campaña de represalias” por los presuntos ataques con armas químicas del gobierno de Bashar al Assad.
El atentado con un coche bomba activado a distancia que mató al gobernador Anas Naem el 25 de agosto pasado, “es parte de una respuesta por las víctimas de los ataques con gas nervioso en el distrito Al-Ghuta Al Sharkiya el día 21”, señalaron los rebeldes en un comunicado que difunde la agencia de noticias DPA.
El Frente Al Nusra publicó también un video que muestra un ataque con cohetes del pasado domingo en Al Meshrefe, pueblo de la provincia de Homs habitado mayoritariamente por alawitas, la rama del islam a la que pertenece Al Assad.
