Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri ( born June 19, 1951) is the current leader of al-Qaeda and a current or former member and senior official of Islamist organizations which have orchestrated and carried out attacks in North America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. In 2012, he called on Muslims to kidnap Western tourists in Muslim countries.
Since the September 11 attacks, U.S. State Department has offered a US$25 million reward for information leading to al-Zawahiri’s capture. He is under worldwide sanctions by the United Nations Security Council 1267 Committee as a member or affiliate of al-Qaeda.
On August 1, 2008, CBS News reported that it had obtained a copy of an intercepted letter dated July 29, 2008, from unnamed sources in Pakistan, which urgently requested a doctor to treat al-Zawahiri. The letter indicated that al-Zawahiri was critically injured in a US missile strike at Azam Warsak village in South Waziristan on July 28 that also reportedly killed al Qaeda explosives expert Abu Khabab al-Masri. Taliban Mehsud spokesman Maulvi Umar told the Associated Press on August 2, 2008, that the report of al-Zawahiri’s injury was false.
In early September 2008, Pakistan Army claimed that they “almost” captured al-Zawahiri after getting information that he and his wife were in the Mohmand Agency, in northwest Pakistan. After raiding the area, officials didn’t find him.
Likely location, Tribal Areas of Northwest Pakistan. An unsubstantiated photo recently released purportedly showing al-Zawahiri sticking his head out of a sewer hole in the northwest Pakistani city of Peshawar. It appears he is taking no chances and subsisting in the maggot infested slim-pits below Peshawar.
Reports have surfaced that al-Zawahiri’s three wives are threatening him with divorce if he doesn’t come up with better living conditions. One wife was quoted as saying: “the deplorable, stinky, raw sewage infested slim pits of the sewers deep below Peshawar is nowhere to bring up a family!”
The Quran and Hadith offer detailed descriptions of the methods of punishment in Jahannam (hell). The Quran states the punishments will be: the burning of skin, only to be replaced for reburning; garments of fire to be worn, and boiling water that will scald the skin and internal organs and faces; faces on fire; lips burnt off; backs on fire; from side to side; faces dragged along fire; bound in yokes then dragged through boiling water and fire, and wearing a pair of sandals on fire that will boil your brain.
In the Quran, the punishments of Jahannam (such as burning) are always followed with contrary protection of paradise (such as shade). Hell is said to be filled with venomous snakes/scorpions, the pain from whose venom will last 40 years. Ouch!!
Rising back up!
Now the sick bastards are driving semi trucks into crowds of innocent civilians. Time to nuke these bastards. Okay that is a bit drastic. Fuel-air explosives and napalm anyone?
Isis have released a uncomfortable-looking training video in which they kick each other in the balls.
They also play leapfrog in the generally odd 14-minute propaganda film, which looks a lot stupider than we think they realise.
Some of the trainees are also seen boxing, firing guns and doing stomach crunches.
But yes, by far the weirdest part is when the recruits stand in a row and let their superior kick them in the groin.
ISIS members decided to show a softer side by putting their weapons down and taking part in a makeshift Jihad Olympics in July, reported Daily Mail.
Photographs capturing children as young as five taking part in the activities surfaced online yesterday (July 10).
These photographs were posted on Twitter by Terrormonitor – an account that reports forms of terror activity across the globe.
According to Daily Mail, the event is believed to have taken place in Tal Afar, Iraq – an area controlled by ISIS.
Those who participated were seen playing tug-of-war and musical chairs, reported Express.
THE 100-METRE DAESH Islamic State extremists try to show softer side by organising their own Jihadist Games
Winners were said to have walked away with a goodie bag full of sweets.
According to The Sun, the event was organised following an advertising drive by the extremists where ISIS members had spread the word using leaflets.
The Daily Mail added that the event might have been set up because statistics from the Obama administration recently showed that traffic of ISIS-related posts on social media went down by 45 per cent in the last two years.
And the Jihad Olympics is the terrorist group’s attempt at drawing in more people and portray them in a “normal” and “very different” image.
An anti-ISIS dissident was quoted by Express saying: “The games are very silly – running around chairs to music and tug-of-war. The ISIS fighters begin all the games but then get people to join in. Who would dare say no?
“It is a good idea to let the ISIS fighters win too. Who knows what might happen otherwise? Your head could be the next one in the dirt.”
A photo emerged of a strange event included in the ISIS Olympics: 500 meter goat-piggyback-bicycle-sprint.
Use the nukes boys, use the nukes! Put these clowns out of their misery.
The massacre in Orlando today was conducted by a deranged psychopath. It is becoming more clear that there were political and hateful motives behind the actions of this despicable butcher. The killer (Omar Mateen) was anti-Gay according to recent information, the attack was at a Gay nightclub. He also called 911 to spout something about being pro-ISIS. Mateen has Afghan parents but was born in the States.
His father said when he saw two homosexual males kissing he became outraged. Combine hatred of Gays with Muslim extremism and you have a toxic cocktail that did explode.
Many Muslims of status are extremely intolerant. They see their worldview as the only just and righteous path. And not only do they reject the tenants of other cultures, they despise those other cultures. It isn’t enough to have a negative outlook towards societies that are different, these intolerant Muslim intellectuals, educators, authors and leaders have an deranged hatred and loathing for these foreign Others. They especially hate the west, and specifically an intense hatred for the United States.
One such Muslim intellectual was Sayyid Qutb:
Sayyid Qutb (9 October 1906 – 29 August 1966) was an Egyptian author, educator, Islamic theorist, poet, and the leading member of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood in the 1950s and 1960s. In 1966 he was convicted of plotting the assassination of Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser and was executed by hanging.
Author of 24 books, including novels, literary arts critique and works on education, he is best known in the Muslim world for his work on what he believed to be the social and political role of Islam, particularly in his books Social Justice and Ma’alim fi al-Tariq (Milestones). His magnum opus, Fi Zilal al-Quran (In the Shade of the Qur’an), is a 30-volume commentary on the Quran.
During most of his life, Qutb’s inner circle mainly consisted of influential politicians, intellectuals, poets and literary figures, both of his age and of the preceding generation. By the mid-1940s, many of his writings were officially among the curricula of schools, colleges and universities.
Even though most of his observations and criticism were leveled at the Muslim world, Qutb is also known for his intense disapproval of the society and culture of the United States, which he saw as obsessed with materialism, violence, and sexual pleasures. Views on Qutb vary widely. He has been described by followers as a great thinker and martyr for Islam, while many Western observers see him as a key originator of Islamist ideology. Others in the West believe Qutb is an inspiration for violent groups such as al-Qaeda. Today, his supporters are identified as Qutbists or “Qutbi” (by their opponents, not by themselves).
Though Islam gave him much peace and contentment, he suffered from respiratory and other health problems throughout his life and was known for “his introvertedness, isolation, depression and concern.” In appearance, he was “pale with sleepy eyes.” Qutb never married, in part because of his steadfast religious convictions. While the urban Egyptian society he lived in was becoming more Westernized, Qutb believed the Quran taught women that ‘Men are the managers of women’s affairs …’ Qutb lamented to his readers that he was never able to find a woman of sufficient “moral purity and discretion” and had to reconcile himself to bachelorhood.
Two Years in America
Time in the United States, pursuing further studies in educational administration, cemented some of Qutb’s views. Over two years, he worked and studied at Wilson Teachers’ College in Washington, D.C. (one of the precursors to today’s University of the District of Columbia), Colorado State College for Education in Greeley, and Stanford University. He visited the major cities of the United States and spent time in Europe on his journey home.
On his return to Egypt, Qutb published “The America that I Have Seen.” He was critical of things he had observed in the United States: its materialism, individual freedoms, economic system, racism, brutal boxing matches, “poor” haircuts, superficiality in conversations and friendships, restrictions on divorce, enthusiasm for sports, lack of artistic feeling, “animal-like” mixing of the sexes (which “went on even in churches”), and strong support for the new Israeli state. Hisham Sabrin, noted that:
As a brown person in Greeley, Colorado in the late 40s studying English he came across much prejudice. He was appalled by what he perceived as loose sexual openness of American men and women (a far cry from his home of Musha, Asyut). This American experience was for him a fine-tuning of his Islamic identity. He himself tells us on his boat trip over “Should I travel to America, and become flimsy, and ordinary, like those who are satisfied with idle talk and sleep. Or should I distinguish myself with values and spirit. Is there other than Islam that I should be steadfast to in its character and hold on to its instructions, in this life amidst deviant chaos, and the endless means of satisfying animalistic desires, pleasures, and awful sins? I wanted to be the latter man.”
Qutb noted with disapproval the sexuality of American women:
the American girl is well acquainted with her body’s seductive capacity. She knows it lies in the face, and in expressive eyes, and thirsty lips. She knows seductiveness lies in the round breasts, the full buttocks, and in the shapely thighs, sleek legs—and she shows all this and does not hide it.
He also commented on the American taste in arts:
The American is primitive in his artistic taste, both in what he enjoys as art and in his own artistic works. “Jazz” music is his music of choice. This is that music that the Negroes invented to satisfy their primitive inclinations, as well as their desire to be noisy on the one hand and to excite bestial tendencies on the other. The American’s intoxication in “jazz” music does not reach its full completion until the music is accompanied by singing that is just as coarse and obnoxious as the music itself. Meanwhile, the noise of the instruments and the voices mounts, and it rings in the ears to an unbearable degree… The agitation of the multitude increases, and the voices of approval mount, and their palms ring out in vehement, continuous applause that all but deafens the ears.
This very influential man in the Muslim world was a bigot, racist, sexist and all around bitter religious fanatic. It is voices like this awful man that gets taught in Arab schools. Why can’t the positive attributes of Islam, tolerance, empathy, charity be the pillars of that religion? Why are they so intolerant and so very very angry?
