Al Qaeda in North Africa calls death of U.S. ambassador a 'gift'

By Ed Payne and Saad Abedine

As the fallout from an online film that mocks Islam's holy prophet continues, al Qaeda's affiliate in North Africa urged Muslims in the region Tuesday to kill U.S. government representatives and called the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens a "gift."

"We encourage all Muslims to continue to demonstrate and escalate their protests ... and to kill their (American) ambassadors and representatives or to expel them to cleanse our land from their wickedness," said the statement from al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.

The group called last week's killing of Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, "the best gift you (can) give to his arrogant and unjust administration."

    Few 100% true Reasons why Islam is a terrible and evil religion to stay far away from...

    1. "Prophet" Muhammed was an evil & disgusting pédophile who had several wives like a maniac!
    2. Islam = submission. Allah tell Muslims to submit to his will; otherwise he will torture and torment you in life for eternity. Allah also permits war and violence against non-Muslims!
    3. Islam treats non-adherents worse than animals. If they are people of the books (Christians or Jews), classify them as "dhimmis" and make them pay a special tax (Jizya) to the Islamic government, or they should be enslave, rob, rápe, and lynch them as you please unless they convert to Islam.
    4. Death Penalty for any Muslims leaving Islam, being gay, atheist or insulting Muhammed.
    5. Quran: "Men are better than women", "Men could have many wives", "Men could hit their wives" etc.
    6. Unlike Christians – Muslims pray and serve Allah, rather than praying for themselves or someone else.
    7. Islam is the most violent Religion by far –>> http://www.thereligionofpeace.com <<–
    8. Muslims frequently persecute and kill Christians unless they convert to their cult. Churches have either been converting into Mosque. (Hagia Sophia an example) or being burned down in Islamic countries.
    9. Non-Muslims are forbidden visiting Mecca, and no freedom of/from religion in Saudi Arabia & many other Islamic nations.
    10. Islam is spreading like rats in western countries (Europe & North America), and seek to spread their "Sharia Laws", as well as trying to convert as many people to their "peaceful" religion and ev. taking over the nation.
    They start by opening mosques and marry Christian or Jewish women so they will convert to Islam and raise Muslim kids.
    11. It is the DUTY of every Muslim to expand Islam and strive for world domination.
    12. Quran is nothing but hate and violence. Muslim children are brainwashed and brought up with violence and hatred towards non-Muslims. God forbid you are Christian minority in any Muslim country!
    13. Islam says they believe in Jesus (Isa), yet they deny his words and the Bible.
    14. Muslims in western nations tries to act 'nice and tolerant' to make non-Muslims believe & think their evil religion is peaceful so people fall into their cult and convert! Blacks, prisoners, and poor women are the main targeted!

    May our Lord save us from Islam and its violence & disgusting people!

    Muslims could openly practice their religion freely in western (Christian) nations, but Christians or any Non-Muslims would risk getting their head cut off doing so in any Islamic nation, both secular and extremist !! 😦

    !!!! The more freedom we give those Muslims by letting them wearing their scary Islamic clothes, opening mosques (paying no tax), shoveling their evil religion in our throats, wanting Sharia Laws, etc. – the more problems will be caused !!!!
    !!!! Most Muslims are extremists, and even "moderate" Muslims still support them, so we should NOT tolerate them and we should BAN Islam unless they allow other religious minority in their countries to live in peace !!!!!

      Muslim is a joke for following a false prophet who belives in killing off all the non-belivers. He is nothing but a cult leader that lied to all those suckers that belived he's really a prophet of God. Since when did any Prophet that we know of ever killed those who didn't belive. I will say this he's nothing but a liar and a false prophet!!!

    When it comes to evil, to tolerate is to accommodate, to accommodate is to appease, and to appease is to concede defeat.

    Thanks, Mr. Osama, for the continuing apology tour. You are making our country weaker and more hated than ever.

      INDIA: S@X WITH COWS
      In many Hindu temples there are sculptures depicting men having s@x not only with men but also cows. What is the meaning of this? Is not the cow sacred? If it is, then it should be worshipped not s@xually assaulted!

      What a travesty !

    In their religious fervor innocent people are killed. From all I've read the ambassador had a love and devotion for the people of Libya. It was rewarded by murder and a celebration of that murder. Where's the civility in that?

  9. Mahatma Gandhi: The Mind Of A Pedophile From India

    It is no secret that Mahatma Gandhi (Hindu leader) was a pedophile. What is very disturbing is his relationship (!) and friendship with Hitler. He is known to have offered advice and encouragement to Hitler and his Nazi Party to undertake the Jewish Holocaust.

      He should be tried posthumously for aiding and abetting the Holocaust. The trial should be held in Tel Aviv. His ashes should be put on the witness stand as a symbolic gesture fo all that don't mess with Jews.

    HINDU GODDESS PANCHALI
    This goddess was married to five brothers. Which one would become the legitimate father of his child should she have one? Dr Charles (renowned author and an authority on India) says that instances of incest are common in Hindu scriptures.

      concerning calamities. So it pains us dpeley that this is occurring -as the Muslims are as one body, when one part is hurt we all suffer- but rather than becoming worked up and over- emotional, we must reflect and return to the obedience of Allah. I personally live here in Egypt when I go to the masaajid here (not including the salafi ones, as they have understanding and ulamaa who attend, the likes of Shaykh Hasan ibn Abdil-Wahhaab Al-Banna) there are hardly any new faces in the masjid during these times, and hardly more than one row tops besides that. So then they make kunoot and many of them are upon riyaa, even major shirk of the sufiyyah etc, they do not fulfill the shuroot/arkaan/waajibaat of the salaah such that it may be excepted not only that, they may have bida' in it their earnings are unlawful, such that their clothing, food etc. is as well, which will cause Allah to not respond to their invocations .then when they make the kunoot they yell and raise their voices as if angry with Allah, and become all emotional as the imaam begins to sing the kunoot for sooo long, overburdening most of the followers etc and then they say things in the du'a that was not from the way of the salaf blanketing du'a over entire nations of Americans, Jews, Christians etc. So I ask, how is any of this going to benefit, when first and foremost(as the list of this type of stuff is to long)they don't even have firm faith, or good knowledge/thoughts of Allah. wallahul-musta'aan. I ask Allah, Al-Hayy Al-Qayyoom that he avenge those innocent lives that were taken, and that he preserve those that are left, and that he guide the Muslims to understanding their religion and thus return back to it, and that He forgive us all for our mistakes, and that He not misguide our hearts after having guided them.. Surely He is our Maulaa, He is Al-Haleem wan-Naseer wa alaa kulli shayin Qadeer. Subhaanak Allahumma wa bi hamdik ash-hadu an laa ilaaha illaa anta astughfiruka wa atoobu ilayk.

    A lot of you are either dumb or misinformed... To those who are saying they've never seen other groups of people riot or protest because of an offence on TV, well the other way to say that is Muslims are the most of these groups that have hearts to defend their beliefs and the most who care about the greatest icon who tought them these things they believe in.. Their prophet Mohammad, who they're d...efending, is someone who could do anything to protect them and if any was wronged, to help him, defend him, and solve issues for all these people.. He didn't even see an of these people living now, but he said they were his beloved... So they would definitely be filled with love for him and desire to defend any offence to him... And to those who are saying they proved the movie right, go and ask Muslim scholars... KILLING THE AMBASSADOR, BURNING THE FLAG AND VIOLENCE ARE TOTALLY ANTI-ISLAMIC.. and finaly... Google is there, Books are there, A lot of Sources are there, so use them to read about the prophet Mohammad for some truth.. UNLESS YOU ONLY HAVE TIME TO MERELY JUDGE MUSLIMS AND BELEIVE THAT MOVIE.... I Know Most People Will Ignore All Of This.. but some people still have brains.

    Gandhi was a s@x maniac. Banging underage boys and girls, including his niece. He was busy having s@x while his father lay dying! He could have contracted HIV AIDS as is reflected by his immaciated condition that remained undiagnosed. His body should be exhumed for DNA testing.

      There is more to Hinduism than what you morons could comprehend . A 5000 year old culture that is more abstract than the ones where you blindly follow a book . I must say you should be pretty darn stupid if you believe in some stupid stories built by morons about Shiva Linga being a $#*k . Linga in a very abstract spiritual symbol depicting the cosmos .
      Its truely pathetic for dumb witted morons to talk about it .

    Hinduism is a disgusting cult. Even to this day cross-cousin, father-daughter, mother-son, brother-sister, doing each other is common practice. Let me make it easy for you and refer you to the hindu scriptures and share it with the world. Shame on Hindus and barbaric Hinduism.

    Pushan is the lover of his sister [ Rg Ved VI.55.4 ][ Apte 11 ]
    The Ashvisns married Surya and Savitri who is their sister [ RV I.116.19 ].
    Agni is the son of his father and his sister [ Rg Ved.I.91.7 ]

    A few days back I saw a picture of a bunch of Libyan protesters, they were holding up American flags with monkey heads pasted on them, and I found it kind of funny because these people don't realize that they are the closest thing to being monkeys in this world. I think we should cut ALL foreign aid to these countries in the Middle East who claim to be "allies" but are allowing embassies of all nations to be attacked. You just can't trust them, they'll turn their back on you regardless of how much aid we give them. Obama better wake the hell up

    In India, millions of girls are strangled, slowly starved or simply tossed in the trash. Moreover, in India, at least 1,370 girls are aborted every day. As a comparison, some 250 Indians die every day in road accidents. Terrorists killed about six people, on an average, every day in 2009. In the last two decades of economic progress, 10 million girls have been murdered as such in India.
