Bali cleric sentence 'to be cut'

Even after the second attack? :roll: Are they that stupid? :loco:

Why don't they just admit that terrorism isn't a big deal to them.
Problems worthy of attack,
Prove their worth by fighting back.

For those of you who haven't read the Koran and don't know that the month of Ramadan is ending.

From the Koran, Al-Tawba 9.5:

When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Take them and confine them, then lie in ambush everywhere for them. If they repent and establish the prayer and pay the obligatory charity, let them go their way. Allah is Forgiving and the Most Merciful.


This is the Sura that was chanted at the end of the video of Nick Berg's beheading.
"I got very well acquainted with Joe Stalin, and I like old Joe! He is a decent fellow." - Harry Truman after the Potsdam Conference

In the same spirit, Comrade Stalin, here's a passage concerning the first recorded "suicide bomber."

King James Bible: Judges 16 wrote:[23] Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice: for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand.
[25] And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars.
[26] And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand, Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house standeth, that I may lean upon them.
[27] Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport.
[28] And Samson called unto the LORD, and said, O Lord GOD, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes.
[29] And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left.
[30] And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. And he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life

Well, there were plenty of people applauding IRA bombs at the time, but I don't think they'd have just as popular had they started hacking protestant schoolgirls' heads off. End result was still dead people, but I bet if you'd gone into a Boston bar collecting for the Irish Republican Sawing off Schoolgirls' Heads Fund you'd have met with a fairly poor response.

Yeah, but Samson was clearly a bollix, and no-one made a religion out of following him. The piece from the Koran as quoted above is an exhortation to murder.

Is this an argument for the sake of argument?? What's the point here??

Clearly, people do not appear to be quoting the Samson bit and following suit. Can the same be said of the Koran bit?

Face it, the Koran does inspire people to murder other people. And yes, once in a blue moon, some fundementalist Christian nutjob kills in the name of God. However, the former seems to far far outnumber the latter.

Yeah, right on, all nineteen terrorists died in the 9/11 attacks, therefore the U.S. had no reason or right to go after Osama bin Laden! :roll:

Group hug time.


All 19 alleged hijackers did not die.

'At least four of these hijackers are still alive. Saudi Arabian pilot Waleed Al Shehri ) was one of five men that the FBI said had deliberately crashed American Airlines flight 11 into the World Trade Centre on 11 September.

He told journalists there that he had nothing to do with the attacks on New York and Washington, and had been in Morocco when they happened. He has contacted both the Saudi and American authorities, according to Saudi press reports.

Other so called 'suicide hijackers' who have come forward to protest their innocence (being alive is a good enough alibi) are Abdulaziz Al Omari , Saeed Alghamdi and Khalid Al Midhar.'

And Usama Been Forgotten isn't wanted for anything that happened on 9/11 in the US.
But the mainstream media would like us to believe he is wanted for everything from causing earthquakes to online file sharing.
