I wonder, if these two will go to paradise and have their share of the 72 virgins in the place of milk and honey of paradise. Fact is that they have been a jihadist, as mohamad have asked them to be. At least they should get half the virgins

Quoting Qur’an 5:32 without 5:33
From Pickthall:

32. For that cause We decreed for the Children of Israel that whosoever killeth a human being for other than man slaughter or corruption in the earth, it shall be as if be had killed all mankind, and whoso saveth the life of one, it shall be as if he had: saved the life of all mankind. Our messengers came unto them of old with clear proofs (of Allah’ssovereignty), but afterwards lo! many of them became prodigals in the earth.

Who are the corruptors (and mischief-makers in some translations)?

“Non-Muslims ‘cannot be called human beings but are animals who roam the earth and engage in corruption.’ said Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati last week at a ceremony in north-eastern Iran to commemorate the ‘martyrs’ of the Revolutionary Guards and the war against Iraq (1980-88).”(From , IRAN: ZOROASTRIAN LAWMAKER FACES SLANDER CHARGES, November 28, 2005)

“The non-Muslims are [like] those animals that graze, chew their cud, and cause corruption.”(From . Scroll to the section entitled “On Shahada – 1. Guardian Council Secretary Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati”)

“…in 1988, the singer of ‘Peace Train’ authored an ‘informational pamphlet,’ called ‘Eyewitness,’ containing these peaceful words:

‘The Jews seem neither to respect God nor his creation. Their own holy books contain the curse of God brought upon them by their prophets on account of their disobedience to Him and mischief in the earth. We have seen the disrespect for religion displayed by those who consider themselves to be ‘God’s chosen people.’”(From )


“‘The sons of Israel are mentioned as those who are corrupting humanity on earth,’ Abbas said…,” quoting Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), the leader of Fatah and Yasser Arafat’s replacement.(From: )

All that, and they are still losing the war:

"A top United Nations official says the war against al-Shabaab militant forces in Somalia has “ground to a halt” and needs a surge of almost 4 400 more African Union troops and massive UN assistance to break the stalemate and avoid failure."

That is right people. The UN has admitted that they can no longer make offensive operations against al-Shabab and will probably "fail". Send more troops? What they do not seem to comprehend is that more troops and more drones will also fail. In fact, if they wiped al-Shabab off the face of the earth, which they can never do, they would still fail. Ultimate, justice will win. And the attacks on and invasions of Somalia are all unjust. It has nothing to do with al-Shabab. It is simply wrong to invade another country and try to impose an alien or exotic government.

I just read about the persecution that the Kenyan authorities are dishing out to all Kenyan Muslims. The police goes through a neighborhood and basically lock up anybody who can pick up a rifle. In many cases, they simply shoot some innocent boy on sight. Does that win wars? I do not Think so. That makes people angry and force them into al-Shahab's loving embrace. Obama just killed 260,000 Somalis. That does not win wars. All those dead people have relatives and tribes who are still alive. Those who remain alive are now all enemies of Obama. How does that win wars? I do not think it does win. Justice will win.
