The last days of a suicide bomber

By Paul Cruickshank, Tim Lister and Per Nyberg

He was the father of two small children and lived an ordinary life in a drab English town. Most of his family, originally from Iraq, had settled peacefully in Sweden. But unknown to any of them, Taimour Abdulwahab had embraced jihad - and was planning to blow himself up among Christmas shoppers in the Swedish capital.

Abdulwahab's last steps and contacts offer further evidence that "the lone wolf" terrorist is very difficult to identify. But they also show that - even with training - the lone suicide-bomber faces serious challenges in carrying out an attack.

Abdulwahab flew to Sweden from Luton, England on November 19 last year - on the last stage of a journey to his own death. He went to stay with his family in Tranas, a quiet town known for its golf and fishing set amid rolling hills some 100 miles from Stockholm. He spent the next few days with his sister and parents at the family apartment.

But somewhere nearby he was building a powerful if rudimentary bomb, using ingredients he was able to purchase in the town: pressure cookers, fireworks, explosive chemicals and nails and ball bearings. According to British investigators, he had already bought pollen presses and herb grinders in Luton that could be used in bombs.

Abdulwahab, it seems, was working alone - but he was no amateur. Like other confessed terrorists in the United States and western Europe, he had received bomb-making training - not in Pakistan, like many others, but in Iraq. According to sources in Sweden, at least two others may have been familiar with his plans if not actively involved in the plot.

Swedish prosecutors tell CNN that after nearly three weeks in Tranas, Abdulwahab walked out of the family apartment on a sunny Saturday morning. It was December 11, 2010.

"When he left his apartment he wasn't carrying anything - no suitcase or bags. His parents thought he would come back later that afternoon," said Agnetha Hilding Qvanstrom, a senior official in Sweden's Public Prosecutor's Office for National Security.

Qvanstrom told CNN investigators had interviewed 800 people, conducted searches of several premises, and recovered CCTV footage while retracing Abdulwahab's movements. But they were unable to account for 40 minutes on that fateful Saturday.

"We don't know where he went during that period," Qvanstrom said. Investigators believe he may have gone to retrieve his partially-built devices but have not yet located where they were hidden.

Shortly after noon, Abdulwahab left Tranas in a white Audi he had bought after arriving in Sweden. For a man of modest means, he did not seem short of funds. The vehicle's GPS system helped Swedish investigators subsequently retrace his route, which included a stop at a gas station. CCTV footage showed that as he left his car and went into the restroom he already had a bomb strapped to him.

"For a thin guy, he suddenly had quite a stomach - it seems a bomb on his stomach. It may have been that he was fixing something in the men's room," Qvanstrom told CNN.

A couple of hours later, Abdulwahab parked on Olof Palme street - in an area of Stockholm full of stores and apartments. Sitting in his car, Abdulwahab sent several e-mails in English: to a Swedish news agency, the Swedish security services, his wife back in Luton and his mother in Tranas, according to Qvanstrom.

"He said it was because of Lars Vilks and the Swedish presence in Afghanistan," Qvanstrom, told CNN. Vilks, a Swedish citizen, was one of the cartoonists who in 2005 drew a controversial depiction of the Prophet Mohammed. The publication of the cartoons caused outrage across the Muslim world, with riots in Pakistan and Libya. And they have been cited by many militants as driving them toward violence.

At 4:50 p.m. Stockholm police began receiving calls about a car on fire in central Stockholm. Qvanstrom told CNN: "Our theory is that he put the car on fire to draw people close."

Then he planned to use a walkie-talkie to set off a device inside the car. As people ran from the scene, "they would run towards the bomber, who would then set off the explosive devices he was carrying on his body," Qvarnström said.

Forensic examination of the car showed it had been set on fire using several cans of gasoline, bottled cans of gas and fireworks. An explosive device had also been placed on the passenger seat, made from a pressure cooker and similar to the two explosive devices the bomber carried on his body. A second walkie-talkie was also found in the car.

But the explosives in the car did not detonate. CCTV video showed that in a nearby street Abdulwahab was trying to blow himself up. For ten minutes he walked through the area, trying to make the device attached to his stomach work.

See video from the blast in 2010

Just before 5 p.m. part of the bomb finally exploded, killing Abdulwahab instantly. But the rest of the device didn't explode, potentially saving many lives.

Swedish investigators say the bomb in his backpack was substantial – "a pressure cooker filled with 4-5 kilos of explosive substances, along with six aluminum bottles which together held some 5-6 kilos of explosive substances.

"On his front, he carried another pressure cooker filled with 4-5 kilos of explosives, and 9 so-called pollen presses, weighing roughly 2 kilos. In all, the pollen presses contained slightly less than 500 grams of explosives."

A Swedish counter-terrorism source told CNN the pressure cookers were each filled with ammonium nitrate, an explosive chosen by al Qaeda in plots in the West and by far-right extremist Anders Breivik who has admitted carrying out a terrorist attack in Norway in July.

"The explosive devices, had they gone off, were powerful enough not only to cause injury to people and property but also to kill people," said Anders Danielsson, head of the Swedish Security Service.

Magnus Ranstorp, research director at the Swedish National Defence College and a leading counter-terrorism expert, told CNN that while the devices were made from simple ingredients and simply constructed, they were anything but amateurish.

"My understanding is that there was a level of sophistication in the detonation mechanisms and the wiring, " Ranstorp told CNN.

Swedish authorities continue to investigate whether Abdulwahab was linked to terrorists overseas, or received help in carrying out the attack.

"We don't know if he got help in Sweden. What we do know, is that we really think he was alone this day in Stockholm, but we don't know if anyone tried to help him before to buy ingredients for bombs," Qvanstrom told CNN.

But Abdulwahab was in contact with someone in Iraq the day of the failed attack. According to British investigators, Abdulwahab made and received a telephone call to a mobile number in Iraq. They say he had traveled to Syria and Iraq in 2009 to receive training. The head of Iraq's counter-terrorism unit, General Dhai Kanani, disclosed last January that a detained al Qaeda suspect had confirmed that Abdulwahab received three months bomb-making training in Mosul, a stronghold of the Islamic State in Iraq, successor to al Qaeda in Islamic Mesopotamia. And the first photograph to emerge of Abdulwahab after his death was on a jihadist website, showing a slim, smiling young man with what may be the hills of northern Iraq behind him.

"The sophistication of the wiring seems to strongly suggest that he was not a self starter or lone wolf, even though he carried out the attack by himself," Ranstorp told CNN.

He pointed out that Abdulwahab tried to radicalize others in Luton in the years leading up to the attack.

Ranstorp says there are still gaps in Abdulwahab's story. Given his lack of employment, it's still unclear how he found the resources for his suicide mission. And investigations continue into possible accomplices, or others that may at least have been aware of his intentions. Another man, Nasserdine Menni, who had been living in Glasgow, faces charges that he supplied money to Abdulwahab and that they conspired together "and with others to further terrorist aims by criminal and other means." Menni's next court appearance is in January.

      Jathneil and all,
      You're write follow the money, but in addition and more evil, what most of you are forgetting is that Islam is the only main stream contemporary religion which promotes the torture and murder of any man, women, or child that disagrees with Islam, converts from Islam, or promotes their religion which is different from Islam. Most moderate Islam believers will side with Extreme Islam believers, before they choose peace a neighbor of another religion. Once the moderate Islam population is big enough in America the extremist will begin to infiltrate every part of our political and judicial system to turn the laws and our constitution to what they have in the middle east. Read Brigitte Gabrials book, Why they Hate.

    The animosity is between all sides in this matter of religious extremism is justified.
    But at the same time, ALL of you are wrong
    Religion is not the root of all evil. Greed is the root of all evil.
    Who funded Hitler's campaign? International bankers/organizations. (Germans had nothing.)
    Who produced false information to justify the U.S. invasion of Iraq? International bankers/organizations. (Via globalist agents within the U.S. political system.
    Who creates the economic conditions within a country that makes the citizens so desperate that they choose to be suicide bombers, in order to provide for their families? International bankers/organizations. (All these countries are in debt to and under the control of the World Bank and IMF.)
    From the debt of all countries, to the desperate conditions and political situations that such debt creates, most truly I say to you... mankind's ultimate enemy is greed itself. The extremist leaders care nothing for Allah. The Christian countries care nothing for Christ. The Jewish leaders care nothing for Jehovah.
    Its all about power and control. The only true resources on Earth are water, land, animal life, plant life, and manpower. Money enables them to manipulate manpower, which in turn enables them to manipulate the other resources as they see fit.
    Eliminate humanity's dependence and desire for money, with knowledge, and you will shatter the hold that religious extremists have on others... you will also shatter the control that these int'l bankers/IGOs have over politicians. YOU

    Islam does not teach violence and Jihad means to survive and struggle during hard times and if someone comes to attack you, fight back not kill innocent people. As a true Muslim, I am against these acts as they are one of the major sins people are committing these days putting a black spot on the real and true teachings of Islam.

    i will never understand what's in their minds..no matter which is your god, common sense tell us that we should live peacefully. I'm amazed...simple and stupid things such as a cartoon making fun of muslims do not give them or anybody the right to make terrorist attacks. why dont we start living in a civilized war. i respect all religions, i believe each religion is a fascinating world to discover, but these everyday atrocities i read from the muslim world make me doubt about their true reasons. NOBODY CAN KILL IN THE NAME OF GOD. probably they are just hiding their true motives behind their god's ruling. the constant attack muslim world receives is simply a consequence oftheir actions. when they start behaving as civilized human beings that i know they are, people will start respecting your culture.

      in an interview with one of the terrorists from mumbai attacks in india in 2008 , the captured terrorist confessed of how much he was promised for his family after he died . Sure they patronize him and promise him glory , but mostly he did it because he was promised that his family would be well provided for. I don't even believe its in the name of God , its just a bunch of people exploiting other people's vulnerability. If history has taught us anything , its that all terrorists have a political agenda than a spiritual one.

  23. Contraindicated info about Christian

    Christians never killed anyone is name of God or Jesus. In above statements were, fellows about mentioned about Hitler or British Impire killing millions of people. But Hilter or Brition had their own agenda. Ignorant muslims think that if someone is born in Christian family is a Christian but it's not like that. Christianity means believing on rightiousness and follow God's path. If Christian states occupied or battled with other nations that was their own agenda. There's no scripture in Bible saying about killing other people if they come in your path. Instead Bible teaches you love and peace.

      Wasn't there a time in ancient times when Church carried out Holy wars in the name of God , hunting witches and evil. People were drowned with idea if they were not evil they would be saved.

You are raised and bred with hate and violence, you disrespect women, you brain wash little kids – that is all you have going for you. there are no muslims who have done any good to this world, only self destruct.

      100% agree with you!

      As I already said, if we are talking about the dark sides of religions, then every religion has its fare share. Somebody don't have to be a genius to know what we christian have done in the name of religion, or what the jew rabbis are preaching against everybody else about their inferiority. I have even seen picture of jew rabbis sucking blood of just circumcised baby penis.

      Secondly, I sincerely don't believe that every muslim is terrorist. Most of them are normal people like us, has family, want to live a good life. Because of some extremists, they are having all those negative propaganda against them.

      Thirdly, I don't know why some people are talking about and supporting Israel here. But to be fair, Israel is an embarrassment. Though it calls itself a democracy, by calling itself a jewish state, its a theocracy at best – sounds like islamic republic of Iran! Moreover, you can call the Palestinian freedom fighters as terrorist or whatever you want, but the fact is Israel is the oppressor and aggressor there, and our support for them should stop immediately.

      Fourthly, I have a high believe that most of the problems we West are facing are because of Israel. As Israel acts like the bully, the muslims try to retaliate. And when those muslims see us to support Israel's bullying, they divert their anger and frustration towards us. To get rid of all this, getting rid of Israel should be our first and foremost priority. Let the muslims and the Israelis deal themselves.

      Lastly, lets not hate others. If we love each other, life will be much more beautiful. I promise!

While Israel has 7 Million people. Don't forget Israel fought all those countries I've mentioned and beat them all.
        Thirdly: I like to see if you would have the courage to stand up to that many bullies or perhaps you would run to your mother.

        let me guess: you are FRENCH! Or a muslim living under EU citizenship. Israel is the first to respond to any world disaster site. Israel bothers NO ONE. They took a desert and in 60 years made it into a beautiful country, where anyone is welcomed. Are we welcomed in any Arab country? NO, women would have to cover up, yet these muslims go to USA and EU and refuse to take the bruqa off for a photo id????? Israel does not oppress, every time they give a piece of land, or another change to palestinian animals, they blow themselves up again, they trade thousands of palestinians for ONE Israeli soldier. Thats right you ignorant pig – ONE JEW is worth thousands of palestinians. So the next time you want to use computer, thank Israel for inventing the micro chip, the next time you are sick and need treatment, thank Israel for inventing half of the vaccines. Next time you are safe on a flight across Atlantic, thank Israel for training ALL major airlines on air marshal security. NOT SATISFIED? adopt a palestinian. because their own arab countries dont want to hv anything to do with them. Thousands of palestinians are sitting in refugee camps in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon – NONE of these coutnries want to give them citizenship because NOBODY wants them! They are scums. How many chances have they been given, borders to them opened so they they can go into Israel and work every day: and they screw up every single time. In all the years they live in what used to be Palestine, what have they accomplished? Israel is the world leader in technology and medicine. Jews believe in LIFE not death. So go comments in your local newspaper to somebody who actually cares.

    How muslim can believe in a man–"prophet" Mahomma– that married a 6 years-old?? How can that 54 year-old man be the guide of a religion? Look...The thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that makes us cringe as it reminds us of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is difficult to accept that the Holy Prophet married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and consummated his marriage with her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old. Some Muslims claim that it was Abu Bakr (Aisha's father) who approached Muhammad asking him to marry his daughter. This is of course not true and here is the proof...Sahih Bukhari 7.18
    Narrated 'Ursa: The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for 'Aisha's hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said "But I am your brother." The Prophet said, "You are my brother in Allah's religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry." Please spead this to those non-muslim and muslim to know the about about their lider, who was mentally insane.

      Because of my role, I studied Islam from both sides... and yes, there's an opinion (based on a WORD (yes, just one word) when Aisha said "When I was married the prophet, I played as nine yrs old", which translated word by word as she is 9 years old. On the other hand, top well known historian scholars many hundreds of years back (before any one ever complained) said that she was between 18-21 based on facts and they wrote .

      I have came to know that issue is that if you want to attack Islam you will of-course ignore the 2nd well trusted opinion and pick the one that matches the desire of the person (of course the 1st opinion).

      Logic is if there is a creation there is a creator. So your logic makes no sense. Many people commit crimes without any connection to religious ideologies. You have your opinion that is your right. But offending others to get your point across is just as much as being a terrorist who thinks he/she is right and blows up in front of others as if to make a point. Yes you are still alive. Or do you really know how to live. Another thing is you show your ignorance of comparing religions. The majority of real Christians fight for life in many situations. Muslims are the majority of people who blow themselves up. So before you pass judgement as if you were a god I suggest you look at the eclipse tonight and see you are need some help just like we all need help.

    Scandinavia will be forced to ask itself some tough questions in the next few years. Their welfare state system works only if those taking from it are also putting in. The Scandinavian people accept their rather large tax burden when they know they will be the beneficiaries of free education, health care and a welfare system that will support them when needed.

    However, unchecked immigration has destroyed this delicate system. North African and Middle Eastern immigrants have flooded to the Scandinavian countries like locusts and, if left unchecked, will simply drain the system until they find a new host. This is simply a consequence of mixing the 3rd world with the 1st world. When you take a group of people who have to work themselves to the bone just to survive and place them in an environment where social welfare programs make it easy to live comfortably without working…what do we expect will happen?

Your tenets inspire laziness and you people do quite good at that. Look at the state of the places you have attacked, yes, you people attacked. Mostly all basket cases. It's your political ideology of islam that inhibits you from getting anywhere.

      Two questions:

      1. Can you explain why Mohammed for 13 years after announcing Islam in Macca didn't fight all type of torture against him and his people when he had enough to take over the town? He didn't wanted that way. In Madinnaa, he had to defend the city (now it has kids, ladies) Muslims and Non-Muslims.

      2. How many killed in the raids and what was the outcome of these raids? Let me answer that for you, no killing in some of these raids, and the result is a DEAL! The deal is to have these tribes stop attacking the Muslims in Madinna. If it wasn't these raids, Muslims men, ladies, kids wouldn't survive in Madinna.

    For example, the attack on B.Fazara resulted in the capture of Umm Qirfa Fatima d. Rabi'a b. Badr. "She was a very old woman, wife of Malik." And she was murdered "by putting a rope to her two legs and to two camels and driving until they rent her in two (p. 665). Muhammad's piecemeal, leisurely, butchery of between 600 – 900 survivors of the raid on B. Qurayza is described on page 464 and the parceling of the Qurayza property, women and (36) horses among the Muslims is described on page 466.

      Gerome, how do you live with this much hatred inside you?!

      First of all, if you are talking about the dark sides of religion, then every religion has its fare share. You don't have to be a genius to know what we christian have done in the name of religion, or what the jew rabbis are preaching against everybody else about their inferiority. I have even seen picture of jew rabbis sucking blood of just circumcised baby penis.

      Secondly, I sincerely don't believe that every muslim is terrorist. Most of them are normal people like us, has family, want to live a good life. Because of some extremists, they are having all those negative propaganda against them.

      Thirdly, I don't know why you are talking about Israel here. But to be fair, Israel is an embarrassment. Though it calls itself a democracy, by calling itself a jewish state, its a theocracy at best – sounds like islamic republic of Iran. Moreover, you can call the Palestinian freedom fighters as terrorist or whatever you want, but the fact is Israel is the oppressor and aggressor there, and our support for them should stop immediately.

      Fourthly, I have a high believe that most of the problems we West are facing are because of Israel. As Israel acts like the bully, the muslims try to retaliate. And when those muslims see us to support Israel's bullying, they divert their anger and frustration towards us. To get rid of all this, getting rid of Israel should be our first and foremost priority. Let the muslims and the Israelis deal themselves.

      Lastly, lets not hate others. The amount of post you made clearly shows that you have spent a good amount of time after this. Do spend half of the time for love, and life will be much more beautiful. I promise you!

    Surely, he could not have been this twisted. Tabari VIII:40 "The Messenger of God commanded that furrows should be dug in the ground for the Qurayza. Then he sat down. Ali and Zubayr began cutting off their heads in his presence." Muhammad was a prophet of a different color. Tabari VIII:38 "The Messenger of Allah commanded that all of the Jewish men and boys who had reached puberty should be beheaded. Then the Prophet divided the wealth, wives, and children of the Banu Qurayza Jews among the Muslims." Ishaq:465 "When their wrists were bound with cords, the Apostle was a sea of generosity to us." Muhammad told the Muslims that he was the perfect model for conduct. He claimed that Allah told him that he was the perfect model for conduct (it is in the Quran that way).

    Then in words hauntingly similar to what Jews must have asked as Nazi trains hauled their families off to concentration camps: "As they were being taken in small groups to the Prophet, they said to one another, 'What do you think will be done to us.' Someone said, 'Do you not understand. On each occasion do you not see that the summoner never stops? He does not discharge anyone. And that those who are taken away do not come back. By God, it is death!' The affair continued until the Messenger of Allah had finished with them all." If 900 men and boys were dragged out of their imprisonment in "batches" and led into the central market square of Medina to be beheaded in front of Muhammad, the "affair" would have lasted eight to ten hours. Imagine a "prophet" perverted enough to watch until he had "finished with them all." It’s enough to make you vomit.

Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina (it is still its marketplace today), and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men." The lone prophet of the Islamic religion had the imprisoned Jews brought to him so that he might enjoy the ghoulish spectacle. Even Hitler was too ashamed to visit Auschwitz.

    The consitituitions of Iraq and Afghanistan are also illegal because they state that Islam is the supreme religion. My tax money and American troops should not be wasted on supporting the Islamic Republics of Afghanistan and Iraq. Those countries should be treated as conquered and not be allowed to operate as Islamic Republics. The Afghanistan Government executes and tortures Christians with only a few cases becoming famous like the Muslims who become Christians in the famous cases in 2006 and again recently in 2011. In 2006, The U. S. Government had to beg to stop the execution and then the 2006 convert had to be smuggled out of Afghanistan like a thief in the night so the common people of the Islamic Republic would not kill him. The liberals controlling the U.S. Government are waging a secret UnConstitutional war against Christianity in favor of Islam. You never hear the liberals saying that Christianity is a religion of peace. Even George Bush was wrong.

    The most basic reason for Islamic anti-semiticism is that Muhammad grew to hate the Jews because they would not accept him as a prophet. He first tried to charm them, e.g., by having his followers pray towards Jerusalem instead of Mecca for a while until Muhammad accepted that they would not follow him. Also the pagan Arabs told Muhammad that they knew little about prophets but if the Jews accepted Muhammad as a prophet then the pagan Arabs would follow him as a prophet also. The Jews said that Muhammad was not a prophet because he had no attesting miracles and that he did not remember the Torah or other scriptures correctly and added a lot of obviously incorrect and strange material. They were a major obstacle to Muhammad until he changed his revelations to the overriding violent vicious ones which attracted followers and then conquered the Jews by force and justified it by saying Allah hated the Jews, etc. Muhammad also had to depict them as evil to justify stealing the Jewish workers hard-earned possessions and their women and girls as sex slaves to keep his blood-thirsty followers happy during periods when other groups were able to fend off Muhammad's attacks. For reference see http://www.prophetofdoom.net or Sira of Guillame or Hadiths or Quran.

    Many scholars have published many books and websites about the viciousness of Mohammad's final binding "revelations" that overrode and replaced his previous peaceful revelations, e.g., Prophet of Doom by Craig Winn (free at Prophetofdoom.net), the Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam by Robert Spencer, answering-islam.org. Yes, after 9/11, I started studying why they attacked us and what to do about it. I found that it was just like Osama and other Muslim terrorists kept telling us: that Allah (through Mohammad) told them to do this to non-Muslims. And this is why they attack the Jews, Israel, US, Europe, Christians, almost go to nuclear war against India, even attack the Buddhahists, e.g., assasinations of Buddahist leaders in Thailand. They even can't get along with Buddahists! The Alleged Prophet Mohammad told his warriors before a battle that he had a "revelation" that if his warriors died in battle for Islam then they would go to Paradise & get many virgins (not sure where 72 came from). He told them his other "revelation" that if they did not die it was approved by Allah to rape the captive women (Koran, Sura 24 Verse 33). He even told them essentially that it was a win win situation for them. Sadly many men joined him after this "revelation". This is also documented in his biography The Life of Muhammad: A Translation of Ibn Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah by Alfred Guillame. The violent final revelations override and replace the earlier peaceful revelations that were revealed when Muhammad was influenced by his Christian first wife and other Christians. Muhammad did the same at Khaybar and other villages until he died in 632 A.D. See for reference Muhammad: Prophet of Doom page 471 by Craig Winn at Prophetofdoom.com. See also translations of the Sira. Jesus, Buddha, Zoroastarians, Bahais, and the Jains never advocated or committed atrocities like this. Islam is NOT a religion of peace. It is a violation of the separation of church and state for the U. S. Government to keep telling us it is. It is unconstitutional, illegal and treason for U. S. Government Officials to repeatedly tell us that Islam is a religion of peace. The consitituitions of Iraq and Afghanistan are also illegal because they state that Islam is the supreme religion.

      there is nothing peaceful with the quaran.you are just funny.can you show me someone who stayed with the quaran and became very wise,innovative,helpful and very knowleable? there is always if not anger and violence,then brutality against women.something very vicious–anyone who stays with the quaran becomes something else.bitter and deadly!! wicked and treacherous.divisive and uncaring.how many suicide bombing has been carried out in the islamic nations? uncountable is the answer.why? bitter against someone does not guarantee you killing your own people including yourself.lying and brainwahing young ones with a stupid notion that they would marry seventy virgins when they kill themselves and others.if marrying virgins are a good thing then why do you consider even your own women as inferior race?senseless. no one will ever be wise by just reading the quaran but the opposite.they simply become unreasonable,bitter,voilent and foolish.quaran has no light but darkness.

      Sura 24 verse 33 :But let them who find not [the means for] marriage abstain [from sexual relations] until Allah enriches them from His bounty. And those who seek a contract [for eventual emancipation] from among whom your right hands possess – then make a contract with them if you know there is within them goodness and give them from the wealth of Allah which He has given you. And do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, if they desire chastity, to seek [thereby] the temporary interests of worldly life. And if someone should compel them, then indeed, Allah is [to them], after their compulsion, Forgiving and Merciful.

      WHERE IS THE RAPE OF CAPTIVE WOMEN YOU'VE MENTIONED?

      Although acts of terror or voilence committed by any religious group christians, hindus ,muslims or any other group is highly reprehensible, I was just curious to check out the information you referred here about kuran sura 24 verse 33. I googled it out and found out that you have given a totally false account of this verse in Kuran. It refers to something else, i quote two sources here: "24:33 Let those who find not the wherewithal for marriage keep themselves chaste, until Allah gives them means out of His grace. And if any of your slaves ask for a deed in writing (to enable them to earn their freedom for a certain sum), give them such a deed if ye know any good in them: yea, give them something yourselves out of the means which Allah has given to you. But force not your maids to prostitution when they desire chastity, in order that ye may make a gain in the goods of this life. But if anyone compels them, yet, after such compulsion, is Allah, Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful (to them),
      WalyastaAAfifi allatheena layajidoona nikahan hatta yughniyahumu Allahumin fadlihi waallatheena yabtaghoona alkitabamimma malakat aymanukum fakatiboohum inAAalimtum feehim khayran waatoohum min mali Allahiallathee atakum wala tukrihoo fatayatikumAAala albigha-i in aradna tahassunanlitabtaghoo AAarada alhayati alddunyawaman yukrihhunna fa-inna Allaha min baAAdi ikrahihinnaghafoorun raheemun"
      "24:33 Those who cannot find a match should restrain their passion until they could be engaged in marriage. The message reiterates the ruling given in v. 2 and clearly prohibits premarital sex. By implication, those who have attained marriageable age, yet, due to pressure of, say, study, unemployment or other constrains, cannot engage in marriage, they must restrain their sexual urges ( cf. 23:5). In order to facilitate slaves to redeem their freedom, the master is required to give them assurance in writing, implied by the word kitâb (lit. book, writing), that they would be freed after paying redemption money to the master. The verse further requires the master to pay the redemption money to his slave in the form of charity or zakat to enable him or her 'earn' redemption money. The only condition being the master must ascertain the salve would be able to earn and maintain livelihood in an honest way upon setting free, implied by the clause if you know any good in them. Continuing with the rulings on slaves, the verse prohibits forcing women, particularly slave girls, and, by implication, other women caught in financial or societal constrains, into prostitution."

      Although I am no expert on law, these verse seem to be great considering we are talking about times which were kind of barbaric. This also shows people like you on this forum are only full of malice and hatred against your fellow people and no better that people like Hitler.I seriously doubt that you are an American, because American Values are based on freedom , equality and liberty for all.

    Of course they know a suicide bomber has no impact on politics or otherwise. suicide bombers end up footnotes at best. So why do it again and again if it never works? Because these people live in a suffocating social system with ass-faced spouses, and there is no allowance in their world for laughs, love, creativity or freedom of thought. The absence of that is going to drive you to kill yourself, naturally. Thats the life force, and they are suffocated in the tyranny of their distortion of Islam. Then they just tag on the "I did it for Jihad" label as a smokescreen so they dont shame themselves or their families.

        if you are going to rant and make generalizations, at least get your facts correct. yes, we bombed japan, after they bombed us and were ready to kills us all. also the bombs we dropped killed 100k not millions. it actually saved about 3/4 million lives due to invading japan would have been that many. again, japan, wanted us gone, like the hard core muslims.

        You are correct in boys got raped in churches and boys got raped by a coach but this is not acceptable behavior in our country and but a few isolated cases. We haven't built a religion off violence and teach the followers to kill themselves and as many other non believers as possible, like some extremists. The U.S. wasn't a supported of Hitler and his beliefs and many Americans died fighting against his forces. You lumping in all of your so called "christians" into one category including Hilter and the U.S. is ridiculous. It is like trying to lump all muslims into the extremist violent category....it simply isn't true. and as for saving a nickel on gas... I am paying $3.60 at the pump...

        Islam only produces: hate, death, destruction and stupidity, you are a prime example. There is not one muslim, educated in a muslim country, that got a Nobel prize for science/medicine. You don't add anything to the development of mankind, produce nothing, are nothing and never will be anything due to your backward cult. What does that makes you?: The parasites of the developed world! Have a nice day.
