In 2012, Muslims Murdered More Than 11,000 People

While it is no mystery that Islamic extremists have been wreaking havoc on innocent people across the world for well over a millennium, the 2012 death toll of those claimed by its hands is still as disturbing as ever. As the world rings in 2013, the jihadist-monitoring site “The Religion of Peace” (TRP) has tallied the number of people killed in the last year by Islamists, placing the death toll at 11,267 carried out across 2,459 savage terror attacks.

Since we, in today’s day and age, have become desensitized to numbers (understandably so given the carnage taking place across the world on a daily basis), an overview of some of these horrific terror attacks places the gravitas of the matter in proper perspective. While we won’t list all 2,459 attacks here, the Religion of Peace website painstakingly took the time to chronicle each documented terror attack since 2012 commenced, including the siege on our American outpost in Benghazi that left Ambassador Chris Stevens, two Navy SEALs and another civil servant dead.

Below are several screenshots outlining a mere fraction of the online chart to provide context. You will find that these terror attacks carried out by Islamists around the world have spared no one in their bloodlust and quest for dominance. Among those targeted are children, Christian worshippers, elderly Jews, those who hail from a “rival” sects of Islam, women, teachers, Buddhists, Hindu activists and so on. Also included in the list are Israelis wounded or killed by Hamas rocket attacks and suicide bombings as well as attacks on Israeli tourists abroad.

Israel Fires At Syria

The IDF fired a warning shot at the Syrian military on Sunday, after a Syrian shell landed in the Golan Heights for the second time in recent days.

Israel has not fired at Syria since the 1973 Yom Kippur War.

“In the midst of Syrian infighting, a mortar shell fired by the Syrian army struck near an outpost at Tel Hazeka,” IDF spokesman Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai said. The shell failed to cause injuries or damages.

“In light of the policy instituted by IDF Chief of Staff, Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, a warning round was fired back into Syria. We don’t believe it caused injuries or damages,” Mordechai added.

At the same time, Israel sent a warning message to the UN, saying that any further firing into Israel will result “in a real response,” sources added.

Israel limited its return fire, since its policy is to only fire intensively in response to coming under major Syrian fire. “We didn’t continue firing because this was one mortar we were responding to,” the source said.

“We will not accept any firing into our territory,” he added. “This was a signal to the Syrians, that we will not be so forgiving of everything that lands in a territory.” The source stressed that as of now, Israel and Syria were not a in a conflict situation.

The IDF is currently on standby for a security deterioration on both the northern front and the border with Gaza.

Is this why CIA chief really resigned?

The speculation surrounding the sudden resignation of CIA Chief General David Petraeus is focusing in large part on his role in an alleged cover-up of the attacks against the U.S. mission in Benghazi this past September.

Perhaps overlooked is the CIA’s role in purportedly using the Benghazi mission to coordinate U.S. aid to Syrian opposition groups and information those same insurgents include jihadists openly acting under the al-Qaida umbrella.

One week before he was slated to testify before Congress on the Benghazi debacle, Petraeus on Friday night announced his resignation, citing an extramarital affair, and it was reported he will no longer testify.

Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., the House Homeland Security Committee chairman, charged in an interview with CNN that Petraeus is “at the center of this, and there are answers that only he has.” King was referring to the Benghazi attacks.

Asked if he will still call for Petraeus testify despite his resignation, Rep. King replied, “Absolutely, to me, he’s an absolutely necessary witness.”

Patraeus resigned at a time when the U.S. intelligence community is facing criticism over both its response to the assault in Benghazi and whether it had early warnings of al-Qaida plans to attack the U.S. mission in that country.

The White House and multiple State Department officials had immediately blamed a crude film about the Islamic figure Mohammad for what they claimed were popular protests that preceded the attacks on the U.S. mission.

According to new, vivid accounts provided by the State Department and intelligence officials, no such popular demonstration took place the night of the attack. Instead, video footage from Benghazi reportedly shows an organized group of armed men attacking the compound, the officials said.

Hillary Clinton Not Fully Responsible For Libya Security, ‘Buck Stops’ With the President

Sen. John McCain isn’t buying Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s assertion that she is “fully responsible” for the security failures at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi prior to the deadly 9/11 terrorist attack. Appearing on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” on Tuesday, McCain said no matter what Clinton says, the “buck stops” with the president of the United States.

Clinton’s decision to take all the blame is part of a broader plan to protect President Barack Obama before the upcoming election, according to McCain.

The former Republican presidential nominee also said the Obama administration has been in “cover-up mode” ever since the fiery attack, which left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead. The White House repeatedly blamed the attack on an anti-Muslim video even though intelligence suggested it was a terrorist attack as soon as 24 hours after the assault.

McCain wants to know what the president knew, when he knew it, and then what he did about it — all facts that the Obama administration has not been exactly forthcoming about.

“It’s either willful deception or a degree of incompetence and failure to understand fundamental facts on the ground. Either one of those is obviously totally unacceptable. There’s failures (by the administration) all over the Middle East,” McCain said.

Limbaugh: Is Obama setting off the violent protests around the Middle East?

On Thursday’s broadcast of his radio program, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh said it was a possibility that by blaming an anti-Islam video for violence in the Middle East, the Obama administration itself is at fault for the past, present and perhaps future unrest in the region.

“Let me ask you a quick question — we now know because of the Benghazi attack, it was not precipitated because of the video,” he said. “We know this now. We know that it was planned in advance, timed to 9/11. We know a former Gitmo prisoner had a role in it. We know that our ambassador and three others are dead. And we know that there is no leadership in this country that is dealing with this. Let me ask you a question: By feeding the false narrative about this video, this movie that nobody saw — could it be that the Obama administration is in fact setting off protests across the Middle East?”

Limbaugh noted this all began with the press release originally issued by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo — that had since been walked back — blaming the video.

“Isn’t it logical to conclude that every time a member of this administration goes on television worldwide and talks about this video — don’t forget how all of this started,” Limbaugh said. “Some wizard of smart in our embassy in Cairo sent out an official release from the embassy apologizing for this movie before anything had happened. Remember how incredulous we all were. And this apology tore into a nameless America who would do things that would hurt the religious feelings of Muslims. They put this apology out before anything happened.”

And that apology, in addition to the Obama-Biden ticket campaign slogan boasting that Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive, gives some in the Middle East an excuse and motivation, said Limbaugh.

“My point is, now that — they’ve got a built-in excuse,” he said. “Terrorists all around the world have a built-in excuse, that video. They can engage in any terrorist activity they want. And they know that President Obama is going to blame the video, not them. They not only have a built-in excuse, they have built-in motivation. First you got Obama running around spiking the football, ‘I killed Osama. I shot him dead. May as well have been me that pulled the trigger.’ Twenty-one times at the Democrat convention, ‘Osama is dead. GM is alive.’”

Shocking video evidence of Islamic crucifixion

There’s shocking new evidence from the Middle East of crucifixion by Muslims, this time of a “spy” in Yemen who allegedly was accused of U.S. sympathies.

WND recently confirmed a Sky News Arabia report of the crucifixion of dissidents in Egypt.

According to a report by Lebanon Today translated into English, the Yemeni jihadist group Ansar al-Shariah took control of the Azzan area of Yemen and imposed Islamic law, or Shariah.

In the process, the group crucified three men, accusing them of being agents for the U.S. The executions reportedly took place several months ago.

Former PLO operative turned terrorism analyst Walid Shoebat says the inscription in the photo of one of the victims reads, “He was crucified for three days in accordance to Shariah.”

Shoebat says Lebanon Today reported the group carried out the Shariah-prescribed penalties, explaining the multiple executions were retribution for passing information to U.S. forces to carry out attacks by pilot-less drones.

According to Shoebat’s translation, the report said:

“One they nicknamed ‘Captain’ was executed by crucifixion for three days at the entrance to the city of Jaar in the Abyan province, to be viewed by passersby entering and leaving the city.

“Two Saudis and a Yemeni were also executed by the sword at dawn at the hands of Ansar al-Shariah, and [the terrorists] absolved [a] fourth defendant from execution for his young age..

“A leader in Ansar al-Islam claimed that these who were executed belong to the province of Marib, [and were executied] for planting trackers on cars that belong to al-Qaida leaders to be targeted by the drones.”

According to Shoebat, the article said an analyst in the region claimed the crucifixions are “something new.”

‘IF YOU DON’T LEAVE…YOU WILL ALL DIE’

When the angry mob was rampaging through town, storming her home and those of other Christians, the 70-year-old woman hid in her cow pen, pushing a rock against the door. There she cowered for hours, at one point passing out from tear gas being fired by police that seeped in.

When Sameeha Wehba emerged just before dawn, she found she was the only Christian left in this small Egyptian village just south of Cairo, the location of some of the country’s earliest pyramids.

Dahshour’s entire Christian community – as many as 100 families some estimate – fled to nearby towns in the violence earlier this week. The flock’s priest, cloaked in a white sheet to hide him, was taken out in a police van. At least 16 homes and properties of Christians were pillaged and some torched and a church damaged.

The violence was ultimately rooted in a dispute over a badly ironed shirt that escalated into a fight in which a Muslim was burned to death, sparking the rampage by angry Muslims.

“It was a devil’s moment,” Wehba said Thursday at the home of her Muslim neighbors, who have taken her in. “Whoever caused this was the devil’s son.”

The unprecedented exodus underscores how sectarian divisions are bubbling over in the wake of the revolution, in a country where 10 percent of the population is Christian.

Real reason D.C. embraces Muslim Brotherhood

A former lead prosecutor of the terrorists behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center says he finds it “very troubling” that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s close aide worked under a “known terrorist sponsor” and that Washington’s bipartisan ruling class is coming to accept the Muslim Brotherhood.

Andrew McCarthy, a former assistant U.S. attorney for the southern district of New York who is now with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, told WND’s Greg Corombos in a radio interview, “I think it’s all very troubling.”

He said the family of Clinton aide Huma Abedin has been involved in the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, or IMMA, since the late 1970s.

“That outfit was started, it looks like, with the sponsorship of a guy named Abdullah Omar Naseef, who is connected to al-Qaida, who has been connected to financing of al-Qaida,” he explained. “He ran not only the Muslim World League, which is the front of Muslim Brotherhood ideology, but also something called the Rabita Trust, which not only is a designated terrorist organization under American law, but it was actually run for a time by one of the guys who’s a founder of al-Qaida.”

McCarthy noted that the IMMA has published a journal for several years, and Abedin worked in a top position for that publication.

“I go through that history because, on the very journal that Ms. Abedin herself was affiliated with as an assistant editor – from 1996 almost up until the time when she joined the State Department in 2009 – this fellow, Naseef, was an adviser on the board of that very publication,” he said. “We actually have her working in the same institution at the same place as a known terrorist sponsor. So this isn’t just like a casual ’6 degrees of separation’ thing from some obscure Muslim Brotherhood figure.”

McCarthy recently wrote an in-depth analysis of Abedin’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood published on PJ Media.

Likewise, WND senior staff reporter Aaron Klein has detailed Abedin’s ties to the Saudi-financed Islamic think tank alongside Naseef.

However, McCarthy was quick to note: “Nobody who’s questioning the influence of Ms. Abedin – and, particularly, the propriety of her getting a security clearance under the circumstances – is claiming that she’s the policy maker. The policy in the administration is made by President [Obama] and his top Cabinet people and his top advisers and Secretary Clinton. I don’t think anyone is saying that Huma Abedin is responsible for a big shift in American policy.”

Is the Antichrist building his nation even now?

The rumblings stirred by record-setting new film in Turkey are triggering alarm bells with students of biblical prophecy, who warn the world system the Antichrist will use to rise to power is already on the march.

“Constantinople will surely be conquered one day. The commander who conquers it is a blessed commander. His soldiers are blessed soldiers” – thus opens the film “Fetih 1453.”

“Fetih” (meaning “conquest”) begins in 7th century Arabia with Muhammad, who is presented off camera lest pious Muslims be offended by his physical portrayal, declaring the quote above. The film tells the story of the conquest of the Christian East Roman Empire and its capital Constantinople by the Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II, thereafter known as Mehmet Fatih, or the Conqueror.

Director Faruk Aksoy’s film is the now the most watched and highest grossing movie in Turkish history, earning more than $60 million worldwide.

But Joel Richardson, author New York Times best-selling “The Islamic Antichrist: The Shocking Truth About the Real Nature of the Beast” and “Mideast Beast: The Scriptural Case for an Islamic Antichrist,” just released by WND Books, views the release of “Fetih 1453″ and the rise of Turkey as a world power as confirming biblical prophecy.

“In my book ‘Mideast Beast,’ I walk the reader through several key biblical texts that also point to a renewed Turkish power in the last days,” Richardson told WND. “As the Obama administration is openly getting behind the Islamist government in Turkey, numerous world events are all aligning with what the biblical prophets spoke. For those who take biblical prophecy seriously, awaiting the return of Jesus, the events now unfolding in Turkey and the region – the days in which we are now living – are absolutely profound.”

Christian prophecy teachers are reexamining previous dogma regarding the empire of the Antichrist. Until recently North American prophecy teachers almost exclusively held to the European Antichrist theory in part because they believed that the Antichrist would succeed the Roman Empire, which some said never really fell. Modern scholars of biblical prophecy suggest the prior theories were historically inaccurate and contend that the Roman Empire was in fact conquered and succeeded.

Richardson’s work has been instrumental in the reexamination of the geographic region where the Antichrist will arise. The historical parallels between the time period depicted in “Fetih 1453″ and now are worth considering, said Richardson
