Taking the Jihad Temperature - A Gathering Storm Special Series- INTIMIDATION – Part 6

If you throw a frog into boiling water, he will jump out. If you put it in cold water and slowly turn up the heat, he will not notice the rise in temperature and will eventually boil.


The Islamists are boiling our frog and though this blog and hundreds like it record almost daily the rise in the Jihad temperature, unless we see how far and fast the temperature has risen, we will not know how far along our boiling has progressed.


So, the Gathering Storm will be posting only once a week but these weekly posts will take the Jihadist temperature by looking back at news and events over the last two years. Over the next several weeks in the areas of intimidation, infiltration, disinformation and thoseappeasers and apologists who either knowingly or unknowingly advance the Jihad agenda, the Gathering Storm will show how far our frog has been boiled.


By seeing the boiling water around us, we can see how far the boiling has progressed.


The good news is that we are noticing that the water is getting warmer. There is a glimmer of awareness here - a glimmer of hope there. But we have a long way to go.


Here’s this week’s look back AGAIN at the rising Jihad temperature of INTIMIDATION !! And remember – this is just a sampling of Jihadist Intimidation. More to follow.


Storm Track Intimidation: Muslim Indonesia Shows Its Tolerance

File under the term – Let the camel’s nose into the tent and the camel will surely follow.

I’ve written before about how the rise in intolerance grows with the rise in the percentage of Muslims in a country. Now we see the effect in what was formally one of the most "western and progressive" Muslim countries, Indonesia, where over 100 churches have closed in the last 3 years.

From 2004 to 2007, 110 churches were closed in Indonesia as a result of attacks from radical Muslim groups or by local governments coerced by these groups, reports Compass Direct News.

Based on official numbers, a total of 1,025 churches have been closed or destroyed in Indonesia since the island nation claimed its independence in 1945. Notably, however, only two cases of church destruction or closures are recorded in the era of Indonesia’s first president, Sukarno (1945 - 1967).

And now the intimidation and persecution increased as the percentage of Muslims have increased.

In one recent incident, a church in Sepatan, Tangerang province, was attacked by extremists last December when it refused to adhere to government orders to shut down. Moreover, the home of the church’s pastor was attacked by extremists who kicked out the home’s windows and doors and threw out his possessions.

Even when there are attempts at living peacefully with their neighbors, Christians have been persecuted and even arrested.

High profile cases of Christian persecution in Indonesia include the 2005 arrests of three Christian Sunday school teachers who were accused of attempting to convert Muslim children.

The Muslim parents had reportedly given full consent for their children to join Christian students in singing Christian songs, playing games and hearing Bible stories, but the court nevertheless sentenced the women to three years in prison. The women served two years and were released early for good behaviour last June.

This is warning to all countries with a growing Muslim population that there are those that seek to dominate not assimilate into their countries.

Storm Track Intimidation: Murder - More From Those Moderate Muslims

For some Muslim fathers who have been ‘dishonored’ by their daughters, suffocation and dismemberment is not enough. The family itself must get involved – by spitting on the body.

Heard this on Fox News and found it at the Daily Mail.

An Iraqi teenage girl was brutally murdered by her father in an "honour killing" after she fell in love with a British soldier in Basra.

Seventeen-year-old Rand Abdel-Qader told her best friend how she had fallen for Paul, a 22-year-old she met at a charity where she worked as a volunteer.

When her father learned she had been seen speaking to a foreigner he rushed home and butchered her, strangling and stabbing her while screaming that he was "cleansing his honour".

Her funeral was done without any of the traditional mourning because she was deemed 'impure'. Her uncles were said to have spat on her body.


And what did the authorities do? What do you think?

He was arrested, but Iraqi police took no action. His wife has since left him and is in hiding.


No Shiite! I’d hide too.

Response from the feminists? Ahem. Response from the feminists? Hello? Any outrage from the feminists?

Nada.

Those feminists sure love the religion of peace.

Storm Track Intimidation: Muslim Shame - Urfi Marriages

It’s simply amazing the moral contortions devout Muslims will do to adapt to human behavior. But this time, the jig is up. Secularism to the rescue!

In the back rooms of trinket shops, hidden in the snaking alleyways of Cairo, licences for love are signed, sealed – and sold.

Young, middle-class Egyptians are buying so-called "urfi", informal marriage contracts, in growing numbers to get around religious strictures against having pre-marital sex.

Without documentation it is almost impossible for couples to live together or stay in the same hotel room, and the whiff of impropriety can bring down the wrath of parents, friends and neighbours.

Unless you have a license – one night stands are out.

Now Egyptian legislators are preparing to outlaw the contracts and impose fines or jail sentences on the couples involved, and on anyone who acts as a witness. The government fears that urfi marriages have become the country's equivalent of common-law marriage, while conservatives warn that the practice is against Egyptian morals and
senior clerics say it is irreligious.

Hey – let’s hear it for some sane clerics.

The contracts offer the promise of marriage according to the teachings of God and the Prophet Mohammed and once one is bought – sometimes for as little as 50 Egyptian pounds, or around £5 sterling – a couple can effectively behave as if they are married.

However, as some couples admit, urfi marriage is not always taken seriously. "It's for sexual life or just for fun," said Sayeed, 30, a musician on his second such relationship, arranged through a lawyer friend.

Though it sounds like innocent fun, there are serious ramifications of such contracts.

There are cases where contracts are abused, often by wealthy men from Gulf countries who take a temporary "wife" for the duration of a holiday in Egypt, then dump her, leaving her in disgrace with her own family. Siham Ali, who runs a help hotline for these women, said: "There is still a taboo against this in society."

In the most serious cases, Ms Ali said, women who become pregnant are abandoned by their urfi spouses. Illegitimate children in Egypt are not eligible for birth certificates until adulthood unless their father applies for them, condemning them to a lifetime outside the education and health-care systems, and to later difficulties in finding work.

Once again, it’s the woman who gets the shaft – so to speak.

Storm Track Intimidation: Halal vs Vegetarian – What’s the Difference?

Islamists will take every chance to embarrass kafirs and put them in their place even when they are doing nothing wrong.

The newest episode of Islamic intimidation took place at the 2020 Summit in Australia. And like good little dhimmis, they bowed to their masters.

AN embarrassed Kevin Rudd has been forced to apologise to Muslim delegates at this month's 2020 Summit because their religious dietary needs were ignored by caterers who could not tell the difference between halal and vegetarian food.

In the absence of halal food - prepared in accordance to Sharia dietary laws - the Islamic delegates were forced to eat "salad sandwiches and vegetarian pies".

Prominent Muslim leader Fadi Rahman, who attended the two-day conference a fortnight ago, yesterday attacked summit organisers for failing to make halal food available for Islamic delegates.

He said the event's catering manager could not distinguish between halal food - where animals, excluding pigs, are killed under religious supervision for hygienic and humanitarian reasons - and vegetarian food.

"They just thought to themselves vegetarian will do, that's halal and that's it, eat it," he said.

"But we said, 'No, vegetarian is not halal. Vegetarian is vegetarian. Halal food is totally different, shouldn't you guys have done your homework?'

"The management of the catering company came to us and he was almost crying in front of us about how sorry he was," he said.

"He was apologising throughout the whole weekend."

But was it really a gaffe? Tizona’s Web Log doesn’t think so.

The claims about what is “halal” or not are out and out lies. These bastards just lurv to have ignorant kafirs grovelling at their feet on any pretext. Especially when they can fool a PM into it as well. Bet they’re wetting their pants laughing.

I’ve organised many functions and events, massive, large, medium, small and mini, and so have had to ensure that the caterers provided kosher and “halal” meals on various occasions. Vegetarian is just fine. “Halal” refers to the method of killing beef, goats etc., not the method of general food preparation.

The more these people are appeased, the higher and wider the definition of “halal” grows. First, it expanded to claim that “haram” and “halal” food could not be touched by the same utensils, then couldn’t be stored in the same cupboards/fridges and then again, not even be in the same kitchen (that’s why all meals served at Port Hedland hospital are “halal”). Now they’re claiming the method any food preparation must be according to their latest, ever-elastic definition of “halal”.

And those fools in Canberra just keep falling for every new, outlandish claim.

What do you think? Case of kafir stupidity or kafir submission?

Storm Track Intimidation: Syria Going for Record Honor Killings

In Syria, over 10 days, there were 4 reports of honor killings. And the outrage from feminists? Don’t hold your breath.

This if from a site I found called Stop Honor Killings. A good place to track this insidious form of Islamic honor.

Syria-news.com has run four stories relating to 'honour' killings in just 10 days.

  1. In Aleppo, Khalidiya, 23 years old and a mother of two was strangled to death by her brother Khaled who suspected her of having a relationship with another man
  2. In Lathqia, a man was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for the murder by shooting of his sister. The court made this decision based on a coroner's report stating that the victim's hymen was intact. He said had been told that his sister had been concealing a pregnancy for seven months.
  3. A 15 year old boy called MD shot and killed his sister ZN, who was 20 years old, in the village of Jubania, Qaseer, west Humms. She had been in a relationship with MH and had become pregnant, so the killer is unlikely to face any severe penalty.
  4. Four members of the same family have been arrested for forcing their son to kill his sister because she had married a man from the city of Adlb through an 'urfi marriage.

Under current Syrian law, there are extremely lenient sentences given to men who claim an 'honourable' motivation for killing female family members.

Syrian law allows for reduced sentences in the case of a murder committed in the name of so-called 'honour': according to Article 548 of the Syrian

Legal Code:

1. He who catches his wife, or one of his ascendents, descendents or sister committing adultery (flagrante delicto) or illegitimate sex acts with another and he kills or injures one of both of them benefits from an exemption of penalty

2. He who catches his wife, or one of his ascendents, descendents or sister in a suspicious state (attitude equivoce) with another and he kills or injures one of both of them benefits from an exemption of penalty.

This as Syria enters the 21st Century.

Storm Track Intimidation: Educated Girls? Not in Islam

While civilized countries expand the minds of their young girls, Pakistan would rather narrow them. All in praise of Allah, of course.

Peshawar - A high school for girls in Pakistan's north-west Swat district was largely destroyed after militants set it ablaze in an overnight raid, police and officials said on Sunday.

Around 50 rebels entered the school in the conflict-hit Charbagh area, located some 150 kilometres from the city of Peshawar, shortly after Saturday's midnight and used petrol bombs to destroy the library and nine other rooms in the building, the police said.

But first, the school administrator was ordered to preserve the textbooks. What textbooks?

You guessed it.

'The masked men directed me to remove all the copies of Koran (the holy book of Islamic religion) and then set the school on fire,' a watchman, Toti Gul, told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa.

The militants also planted homemade bombs in the school's science laboratory; however, they did not go off and were later defused by a bomb disposal squad, the watchman said.

What need of science? It’s all in the Koran, anyway.


Storm Track Intimidation: Mother of Honor Killing Victim Executed for Leaving Husband

Hat tip to Weasel Zippers.

Here’s what women get when they demand justice. A bullet.

Five weeks ago Leila Hussein told The Observer the chilling story of how her husband had killed their 17-year-old daughter over her friendship with a British soldier in Basra. Now Leila, who had been in hiding, has been murdered - gunned down in cold blood.

Leila Hussein lived her last few weeks in terror. Moving constantly from safe house to safe house, she dared to stay no longer than four days at each. It was the price she was forced to pay after denouncing and divorcing her husband - the man she witnessed suffocate, stamp on, then stab their young daughter Rand in a brutal 'honour' killing for which he has shown no remorse.

Though she feared reprisals for speaking out, she really believed that she would soon be safe. Arrangements were well under way to smuggle her to the Jordanian capital, Amman. In fact, she was on her way to meet the person who would help her escape when a car drew up alongside her and two other women who were walking her to a taxi. Five bullets were fired: three of them hit Leila, 41. She died in hospital after futile attempts to save her.

Ah, yes. The religion of peace in action.

Storm Track Intimidation: Another Example of Islamic Tolerance

And you wonder why there are so few moderates or, at least, those few who dare to speak out.

When moderate Muslims rallied for religious tolerance in the Indonesian capital of Jakarta, they were met with the intolerance of the Islamists.

About 100 members of the National Alliance for Religious and Faith Freedom gathered in central Jakarta to rally against a possible government ban on the minority Ahmadiyah sect, deemed deviant by religious authorities.

About 500 members of the hardline Front for the Defenders of Islam infiltrated the protest, attacking demonstrators with batons until about 50 policemen intervened.

The Ahmadiyah group, which has around 200,000 followers in Indonesia and has been in the country since the 1920s, believes Mohammad was not the final prophet, contradicting a central tenet of Islam.


Well, that deserves a beating right there. Allah forbid that Muslims show some tolerance for those that disagree with them.

Storm Track Intimidation: Muslim Leaders to West – Curb Your Tongues

How dare we! How dare we exercise our most basic freedoms including that of the freedom of speech! How dare we!

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia: A Muslim political leader urged Western governments Monday to hit out more strongly against acts that are offensive to Islam.

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of the 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference, warned there seemed to be a growing "campaign of hate and discrimination" against Muslims by a small number of individuals and organizations.

You mean we have small minority of trouble makers just like Islam does? Who would have thought? Hey! I’ve got news for you swami. That a small number of individuals and organizations who seek to tell the truth about you backward religion is lager than you think and you’ve been systematically trying to silence their voices.

In a speech to a conference in Kuala Lumpur on improving ties between Muslims and the West, Ihsanoglu praised Western nations for criticizing acts such as the recent release of an anti-Quran film by a Dutch lawmaker, but said more should have been done.

"Mere condemnation or distancing from the acts of the perpetrators of Islamophobia will not resolve the issue, as long as they remain free to carry on with their campaign of incitement and provocation on the plea of freedom of expression," Ihsanoglu said.

Well get used to it Ihsanoglu. It called freedom of expression and it will not die no matter what supporters of political Islam wants.

Storm Track Intimidation: Hair and Islam

What it is with hair and Islam? Just last week I did a post on hair being an affront to Islamic tradition.

Gaza – Ma'an – Unknown attackers bombed a hairdresser's salon in the Tel As-Sultan neighborhood of the city of Rafah, in the Gaza Strip at dawn on Monday.

Eyewitnesses said that this Salon, which was owned by a woman, was destroyed by an explosive devise which was apparently planted at the front door.


And….

Iranian police have launched a more extensive crackdown on "social corruption" such as women flouting Islamic dress codes, the Farhang-e Ashti newspaper reported on Monday.

The dress code imposed after Iran's 1979 Islamic revolution requires women to cover all their hair and wear long, loose-fitting clothes to disguise the shape of their bodies.

"Police will seize women with tight coats and cropped trousers and also men with western-style hair cut will be arrested," the newspaper said.

Those are examples of the rising Jihad temperature of for this week. When seen in groups like this, the slow boil becomes obvious.


Next week another look back at the rising Jihad temperature of Islamist INFILTRATION!!
