Is The Global Jihad Entering An "11th Hour" Phase?

Given the events of the last sixteen days, one has to wonder if al-Qaeda and their murderous minions around the world are going into some sort of frenzied overdrive. Surely they're doing their best to isolate themselves from the support and safe harbor they once enjoyed profusely from fellow believers(countries and individuals) in Islam.

In Iraq, they butcher infinitely more Muslims on a 9 to 5 basis than they do "occupying infidels," even while purporting to speak for Islam.

On 7 July 05 in London, a city that has traditionally welcomed Muslims and allowed them to practice their faith without hindrance, these Islamofascists detonated bombs  in three subway stations and aboard a double decker bus that claimed scores of lives and caused hundreds of injuries and massive property damage.

Members of London's large Muslim population began expressing concerns that the bombings might precipitate a new surge of anti-Islamic aggression among Londoners.

On 21 July 05 in London, another series of bombings, these of comparably less damage and death toll rocked the London tube network.

On 22 July 05 in London, Metropolitan Police officers pursued a "south Asian" male onto a train in a tube station and capped him five times(the man, attired suspiciously in a loose fitting coat and carrying a ruck sack, had fled when approached by police and, suspected of being a suicide bomber, was taken out as a precaution against his setting off a bomb), killing him.

Members of the local Muslim population began expressing concerns of a new "shoot-to-kill" policy among police that might lead to the deaths of innocent Muslims mistaken for terrorists.

It may be noted at this point that many Muslims in London and elsewhere have begun openly deploring the acts of terror that they claim is not the way of Islam, only that of an extremist minority and *get this* have been applying the term "terrorist" to the equation, previously a rare choice of reference coming from believers in The Religion of Peace.   

It seems al-Qaeda and friends are beginning to royally piss off their own fellow Muslims in the west and elsewhere.

On 23 July 05, early this morning, terrorists suicide bombed sites in the popular Egyptian beach resort Sharm el-Sheikh, destroying the most popular hotel, damaging neighboring hotels and businesses and killing more than 80 people, injuring at least 200 others. 

A group claiming links to the al Qaeda organization said it carried out the bombings in retaliation for "crimes committed against Muslims," according to an Internet statement.


Considering the fact that the majority of the dead and injured(one of the bombers detonated himself and his car at a locale that was a local hangout, where the victims were mostly young Muslims, many of whom were service industry employees who worked at the hotels and other tourism venues in the resort town) were Muslims, it seems to me that this entire terrorist attack, though there were tourists killed who were from Europe and Asia, was a "crime committed against Muslims."

The Sharm al-Sheikh bombings have drawn condemnation even from the Islamofascist theocracy in Iran, from Jordan and several other Muslim countries, and of course Kofi Annan of the useless UN deplored the terrorist atrocity along with most western governments.

Are the Jihadis painting themselves into a corner by committing "acts of war" against their own? Even the Muslims living in western countries like Britain have to see that Osama and friends are fomenting anger by host country natives against resident Muslims, causing suspicion and prejudice that are inherent in human nature, despite what terrorism's apologists and other "intellectuals" might think, when a specific group of people is the source of countless acts of deadly aggression against everyone else. Terrorism, as it continues to rear its hideous head in western states, will inevitably bring about the institution, dissenters be damned, of blatant racial profiling at airports as a standard policy. Terrorism in the west is as disruptive to law abiding Muslims living in western cities.

And no one, not a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu, a Christian, a Jew nor anyone else can honestly say that these terror groups are not making war on their own kind as much as they are on western democracies or coalition troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

So these animals-without-their-own-sovereign-state have, in the last couple of weeks, made it unarguably plain that they are at war not only with a few countries, but with the entire "rest of the world."

Meanwhile, in London, it turns out that the man the Metropolitan Police waxed in the tube was the wrong man. Despite any criticism of the police regarding that development, let's face it: The police had probable cause to suspect the man might be a suicide bomber and he did run from them. Taking him out was the only way they could have assured that he wouldn't have a chance to "do the deed."

"To give license to people to shoot just like that, on the basis of suspicion, is very frightening," Azim Tamimi of the Muslim Association of Britain told BBC television.

"It is human lives that are being targeted here, whether by terrorists or in this case unfortunately by people who are supposed to be chasing or catching the terrorists."

Sure, Azim, but how would you feel if they hadn't shot the fleeing man and he had been a suicide bomber, and he had taken the afforded 2 or 3 seconds' opportunity to blow up both himself and scores of commuters? I side with the cops.

The sooner the law abiding world Islamic community joins the Global War On Terror, without reservation, to help destroy the extremists who claim to be mass-murdering on behalf of all Muslims(I suppose that also applies to those Muslims they kill, go figure), the sooner we might put an end not only to the al-Qaeda threat, but to the social and other inconveniences it is causing millions of Muslims who say they want to live in peace. 

As for all you apologists here at home who believe(or if you're not profoundly stupid, shit-for-brains-morons and you're simply comfortable with Americans being murdered by terrorists "to make Bush look bad") that terrorism is America's fault, I sincerely hope that if, God forbid, there are any further terrorist bombings on U.S. soil, the victims only include your ilk and not those of us who support our President and the GWOT. You want to endanger the rest of us by obstructing our defensive measures -- and yes, those include our presence in Iraq, the Patriot Act, racial profiling at airports and the Camp Delta detention center at Guantanamo Bay -- so it's only fair that you, not the rest of us, pay any price incurred by your picayune political agendas.

I do agree with you that al-Qeada is running on empty. They are losing a lot of credibilty on the Arab street with their activities in Iraq. The toppeling of Saddam, the liberation of Afghanistan, as well as the other efforts of the war on terror, such as the blocking of terorist's funds has had more of am impact than can be seen on a TV screen.Also, now that they are more openly active, more & more Muslims are begining to see what their true agenda is & that they are not the path to a better future.You have a wonderful blog.

Thank you. I'm still hammering out the technology and soon I hope to have a lot more time to spend blogging.It does seem like the bad guys are beginning to bite off more than they can chew, and even though the loss of life as such is tragic, the end result may very well be that they're hastening their own demise.Kind of like rabid dogs become viewed by a community that's just become really aware of their affliction.

"rabid dogs become viewed by a community that's just become really aware of their affliction"Good metaphore. Glad to hear you'll be blogging more soon. I like the look of your blog. The template is really cool, but I'll bet it's not easy to tackle. If it gives you a lot of trouble, you could always get a Blogger account.

I be working on it. From what I've seen of Blogger, it's probably a lot more user friendly, but once I've mastered Squarespace, I'll probably have the qualifications for a PhD in something. :)Blogger is a distinct possibility where Hard Astarboard's future is concerned.
