The Islamist way of war
is all about war crimes.
Hiding behind civilians, including children;
hiding among civilian crowds;
not wearing uniforms;
using civilian vehicles for attack;
hiding in protected-status places like mosques, churches, hospitals and schools;
using protected-status vehicles like
ambulances to transport weapons
and even using them for attack;
using UN bases and peacekeepers as cover;
denying Red Cross access to POWs,
torturing and executing POWs;
killing medics who come to help their wounds;
and of course
targeting civilians, schools, churches, mosques, hospitals, ambulances,
buses, shops, restaurants,
journalists and aid workers
- all of these are just standard Islamist warfare,
as we have seen in Palestine and Iraq.
These things are not part of US or Israeli warfare,
because their morality is superior to Islamist morality.
Anything goes in Islamism.
Islamism has no honour, no decency and no morality,
and is as depraved as any idea
that humanity has ever followed.
The New Arab Way of War
by Peter Layton
- The Islamist way of war consists of almost
war crimes against civilians.
This is why
I find Judaism to be morally superior to Islam.
Intellectually, I agree,
there is little difference between them.
Both believe in a supernatural world,
and other fictions.
But morally, Judaism opposes the killing of innocent civilians
in war, and so is morally superior to Islam.
on the Islamist way of war:
"I will examine the practicalities, challenges and difficulties faced by military forces in trying to fight within the provisions of international law against an enemy that deliberately and consistently flouts international law.
Do these Islamist fighting groups ignore the international laws of armed conflict? They do not. It would be a grave mistake to conclude that they do. Instead, they study it carefully and they understand it well.
They know that a British or Israeli commander and his men are bound by international law and the rules of engagement that flow from it.
They then do their utmost to exploit what they view as one of their enemy's main weaknesses.
Their very modus operandi is built on the, correct, assumption that Western armies will normally abide by the rules.
It is not simply that these insurgents do not adhere to the laws of war. It is that they employ a deliberate policy of operating consistently outside international law. Their entire operational doctrine is founded on this basis."
Victor Davis Hanson
on how Islamist warfare tries to profit from western decency:
"There is a reason, after all, why Zarqawi's killers are in Fallujah
and not out in tents in the deserts of Iraq, and why his arms caches and depots
are in mosques and his machine-gunners in minarets."
- Bill Whittle on the shameful, dishonourable
Islamist way of war.
Account of the jihadis in Guantanamo
by a U.S. Army male nurse who worked with them,
explains how Islamism has no honour and no morality.
Like the Nazis,
they have contempt for "soft" western democrats' ethics in warfare.
They think they will win because:
"They believe they are more committed to victory at any cost because it is all in God's name and is the Will of God.
They point to our efforts at minimizing both our own casualties and those of civilians.
You never see them worry about collateral damage and destroying infrastructure.
They see our compassion as weakness
and our integrity as blindness to reality."
I'm sorry, but we have to talk about the barbarism of modern Islamist terrorism, Brendan O'Neill, September 28th, 2013.
"In Western news-making and opinion-forming circles, there's a palpable reluctance to talk about the most noteworthy thing about modern Islamist violence: its barbarism, its graphic lack of moral restraint. ... Across the commentating board, people are sheepish about pointing out the historically unique lunacy of Islamist violence and its utter detachment from any recognisable moral universe or human values. We have to talk about this barbarism; we have to appreciate how new and unusual it is, how different it is even from the terrorism of the 1970s or of the early twentieth century."
The challenge: Show me any ethics in Islamist warfare
Islamist warfare seems devoid of any moral code.
Anything goes in terms of killing and raping.
Scholars talk about
rules of war,
but jihadists seem to follow no rules of war in the field.
Has any Islamic state or Islamic armed group ever punished a fighter for killing non-Muslim civilians? Serious question.
Tell me here.
Have Fatah or Hamas ever punished a fighter for killing Israeli civilians? Serious question.
Tell me here.
It is true that the PA has arrested fighters
as part of a deal with Israel (and to prevent Israel invading).
But show me where the PA (and Palestinian society)
got angry with a Palestinian war criminal all by themselves.
Or a more general challenge:
Show me any ethics ever in Palestinian warfare.
Show me any use of ethics by Palestinian fighters ever.
Tell me here.

Western secular morality is far superior to Islamist morality.
who carried out
Jewish Museum of Belgium massacre,
sums up the morality of the Islamist way of war.
He is quoted
"Do you know what happens when I go into a Shi'ite home?
First, there's the grandmother - I only use one bullet on her, she's not worth more
- then the wife. First, I rape her, then I cut her throat.
Then I come to the baby. Ah, a baby! You cannot imagine the pleasure you get from cutting off a baby's head."
The Iraqi resistance:
"In another case, a retarded 13-year-old girl was strapped with explosives, given the hand of a 3-year-old toddler to hold, and told to walk into a line of police recruits. They pressed the button when the girls were amid the waiting men."
The Iraqi resistance:
"The soldiers told me of a suicide bombing that betided their post the day before the elections. In a particularly gruesome display of insurgent character, the bomber had grabbed the hand of a girl, about five, and used her for cover to approach the IPs. The explosion occurred just yards away from the roof where I stood with the soldiers. Eight people and that little girl were killed that day. Unlike in Baquba where such attacks are common, attacks are relatively rare in this part of Iraq. Perhaps because of that, or maybe just because of the callous way the bomber eviscerated an innocent child, the incident seemed to leave a deep imprint on the soldiers who witnessed it."
Bombs strapped to Down's Syndrome child
who is told to approach a line of voters
in the Iraqi election, Jan 2005,
where the child is blown up.
"Children afflicted with Down's Syndrome are perhaps the most kind, gentle and innocent beings on this earth.
That "militants" should use them for such a purpose should come as no surprise."
Trying to get children killed:
"Did you know?
Muslim terrorists in Iraq would travel from village to village and distribute wooden replicas of the AK-47 machine gun to Iraqi children.
They hoped the children would play with the guns in the late evenings,
and American soldiers on patrol would mistake them for terrorists, and kill them."
2007 Karachi suicide bomb
that killed 140
strapped to a 1 year old child
to get past security.
Just before the explosion, it was noticed that:
"They were trying to hoist the child - dressed in the colours of my party's flag - onto my truck ... witnesses said the child had been rigged as a human bomb.
... What followed was a massive explosion, killing scores immediately,
tearing many bodies in half and sending blood, gore and flames up into the vehicle".
"They were planning that she would allow a baby to come near.
They were counting on her humanity, when they themselves have none."

Islamist jihadis suicide bomb a line of schoolchildren.
59 children aged from 8 to 18 killed.
Many more children horribly injured.
13 year old child suicide bomber blown up to kill British soldiers in Afghanistan, Dec 2008.
The child-abusing jihadis are so evil, they know their enemies are decent.
They know their enemies will not want to suspect (and aim at) every child they see.
The jihadis cynically take advantage of the goodness and decency of their enemies.
Taliban kill 130 children at school in Pakistan, Dec 2014.
They slaughtered children age 6 to 18 at the school for several hours.
They suicide bombed classrooms.
They lined up children and shot them.
They forced children to watch as they burned a female teacher alive.
The Islamist way of war:
"Soldiers" attack women and children in a
shopping centre in Kenya, Sept 2013.
They round up terrified people,
and separate them into Muslims and non-Muslims.
The Muslims (if they could recite an Islamic prayer)
were let go.
The non-Muslims were executed.

Why does Hamas not try to avoid civilian casualties?
Eye in the Sky
A profound, realistic, intelligent movie
about the modern Western way of war
- where western armies try hard, using advanced technology,
to avoid enemy civilian deaths.
It is the complete opposite
of the depraved, immoral, Islamist way of war,
which rejoices in enemy civilian deaths.
Modern Western ethics are far superior to primitive Islamist ethics.
My response to the fact that
knew drones were after him,
and he knew the infidel had better morality than he and his jihadi fighters did,
so he went about
with his young stepson beside him
so the drones would not strike.
It says it all, both about Islamist fighters and about the infidels.
The jihadi "soldiers" that took children hostage at the school
Russia, in Sept 2004,
sum up the Islamist way of war:
Taking civilian hostages (including children and infants).
Starving, raping and torturing them.
Forcing, like Nazi guards, crying mothers to choose one child to live
and one child to die.
Having terrified children running naked and bleeding from the building.
Shooting the escaping children in the back.
Islamism is the modern Nazism
and anyone who supports it is a Nazi.
"Slaughtering the innocents violates a universal human taboo.
Or a nearly universal one. Those Muslims who preach Jihad against the West decided years ago
that killing Jewish or Christian children
is .. acceptable"
Russia should join the War on Islamist Terror,
and stop obstructing it:
"the Kremlin will have learned to rue the day it imagined that there was anything to gain
by opposing American efforts against terrorists"
And so should Europe:
"all Europeans with a vestige of sense will recognize that the school seizure in Russia could easily repeat itself
in Languedoc or Umbria, Bavaria or Kent."
sums up how I feel:
"That is good news.
BTW, IMHO, until they started bombing Moscow subways,
apartment buildings, rock concerts and killing school children,
of all the Muslims with "grievances", the Chechens had perhaps the most legitimate.
The Russians really were pretty savage with them.
But it is hard to be sympathetic with people who got so tight with al Qaeda."
Russia is not America.
Russia is not part of the free world.
Chechens fighting for democracy against Russia I can respect and support.
But Basayev was not fighting for democracy. He was fighting for jihad,
for the extermination of infidels
and the oppression of Chechens under Islamic rule.
He was fighting to enslave Chechnya,
and every Chechen must be glad that he is dead.

The Islamist way of war:
The torture, bombing and shooting of naked children
at the school in Beslan, Russia, 2004.
Left: Picture credit
Right: Picture credit
These children were kept hostage by the heartless jihadis,
and were starved, raped and tortured,
denied food and water in roasting hot conditions,
with hundreds of others.
It was like something from a Nazi concentration camp,
with naked, frightened children being herded back and forth by heartless guards.
Over 150 innocent children were tortured and killed,
and hundreds of other children tortured and horribly injured,
in one operation by the Chechen and foreign Islamists
- in their heroic campaign to
establish an Islamic fundamentalist fascist tyranny.
The school in Beslan was a glimpse of the future
- of the Auschwitz
that Islamists will set up for infidels
if they ever get the chance.

Russia decided that
Chechnya would adopt sharia anyway.
What was the point of fighting it then?

the leader of the jihad massacre of
Saudi Arabia, May 2004,
sums up the evil religious psychosis
we are up against:
"As soon as we entered, we encountered the car of
the investment director of the company,
whom Allah had sent to his death.
... We left him in the street.
We went out, and drove our car. We had tied the infidel by one leg [behind the car].
... The infidel's clothing was torn to shreds, and he was naked in the street. The street was full of people,
as this was during work hours, and everyone watched the infidel being dragged, praise and gratitude be to Allah.
We told [Muslims],
'Calm down, don't be afraid, we don't want you. We want only the Americans.
We are Mujahideen, and we want the Americans. We have not come to aim a weapon at the Muslims,
but to purge the Arabian Peninsula, according to the will of our Prophet Muhammad,
of the infidels and the polytheists'
We entered one of the companies' [offices], and found there
an American infidel
who looked like a director
of one of the companies. I went into his office and called him. When he turned to me, I shot him in the head,
and his head exploded. We entered another office and found
one infidel from South Africa,
and our brother Hussein slit his throat.
We entered and in front of us stood many people. We asked them their religion, and for identification documents.
We used this time for Da'wa [preaching Islam], and for enlightening the people about our goal.
We spoke with many of them.
At the same time, we found
a Swedish infidel.
Brother Nimr cut off his head, and put it at the gate [of the building]
so that it would be seen by all those entering and exiting.
We continued in the search for the infidels, and we slit the throats of those we found among them.
We found Filipino Christians. We cut their throats and dedicated them to our brothers the Mujahideen in the Philippines.
[Likewise], we found Hindu engineers and we cut their throats too, Allah be praised.
That same day, we purged Muhammad's land of many Christians and polytheists.
Afterwards, we turned to the hotel. We entered and found a restaurant, where we ate breakfast and rested a while.
Then we went up to the next floor, found several Hindu dogs, and cut their throats.
We utilized the time for [teaching] the Koran to the Muslims who remained. We taught them how to read
properly. They were amazed by us"
Pakistan Taliban, Aug 2010, threatens to kill aid workers coming to help the country
after the massive 2010 floods.
As Robert Spencer says:
"It's just plain bad for business to have non-believers, who are the vilest of creatures
... engaged in acts of mercy. Folks might stop and reconsider whether they're really so vile.
It must stick in the Taliban's craw that Western, non-Islamic nations are bearing the brunt of demonstrating compassion and charity to Pakistanis in need, while the wealthy Islamic states of the Gulf have indeed been a day late and a dinar short."
Badakhshan massacre, Aug 2010. Taliban shoot dead 8 western aid workers - because they are infidels.
The Taliban said:
"Yesterday .. one of our patrols confronted a group of foreigners.
They were Christian missionaries and we killed them all."
They worked for a Christian NGO, but it is not clear they were all even Christian.
The lovely British doctor the Taliban killed,
"did not really believe in organised religion".
They were killed because they were westerners trying to help the people of Afghanistan. No other reason.
As Robert Spencer
says, it made the Taliban furious that here were
"filthy infidels performing greater acts of mercy than the mujahedin could dream of".
The US Ambassador to Afghanistan, speaking to Afghan people, said the attack exposed
the absurd idea that the Taliban care about the people of Afghanistan:
"Their murder demonstrates the absolute disregard that terrorist-inspired Taliban and other insurgents have for your health, have for your security and have for your opportunity, They don't care about your future. They only care about themselves and their own ideology."

Saving Mohammed Abu-Mustafa, Haaretz, 1 July 2010.
A Palestinian baby with a genetic defect
needs expensive medical treatment that his family cannot afford.
Israeli TV covers the story,
and Israeli Jews respond:
"Hours after the news item about Mohammed was broadcast, the hospital switchboard was jammed with callers
[wanting to donate].
An Israeli Jew whose son died during his military service donated $55,000".
As the Israeli doctors work to save her baby, how does his mother respond?
By hoping that the baby will grow up to kill the Israelis who are saving his life.
"Raida Abu Mustafa launched into a painful monologue about the culture of the shahids - the martyrs - and admitted, during the complex transplant process, that she would like to see her son perpetrate a suicide bombing attack in Jerusalem.
"Jerusalem is ours," she declared.
"Life is not precious. Life is precious, but not for us. For us, life is nothing, not worth a thing. That is why we have so many suicide bombers. They are not afraid of death. None of us, not even the children, are afraid of death. It is natural for us. After Mohammed gets well, I will certainly want him to be a shahid. If it's for Jerusalem, then there's no problem.""

The Islamist way of war.
Every day, at every airport in the world,
the ancient desert religion of Islam
imposes itself on millions of people who don't believe in it.
The evolution of airport security:
(X-rays for baggage, metal-detectors for people)
was imposed in the first place in the 1970s because of
the vile attacks on civilian airplanes by
Arafat and his Palestinian terrorists.
These attacks have continued by every Islamist group since.
You cannot carry sharp objects on board because of the
You have to take your shoes off because of the
Islamists hiding aircraft bombs inside their bodies.
Will passengers need to be X-rayed now?
The jihad is trying to make it impossible to travel by air at all.
This is dangerous stuff.
What if violent Muslims do succeed
in making air travel impossible in the West?
The public response
might be very worrying.
This would be a
for innocent Muslims in the West.
The Nicholas George case
illustrates both the Islamist way of war,
and the huge gulf between those who protect us from it,
and the ungrateful public like Nicholas George.
was stopped at a Pennsylvania airport in Aug 2009.
He was a young male student, carrying
Arabic-English flash cards including the words "bomb" and "explosive",
two stereo speakers,
a Jordanian student ID,
a passport that showed he had visited Egypt, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Sudan,
and a book that was "critical of U.S. foreign policy".
When asked by security how he felt about 9/11, he gave the following
incredibly suspicious answer:
"He said he hemmed and hawed a bit. 'It's a complicated question.
But I ended up saying: It was bad. I am against it.'"
He was detained for 4 hours until it was sorted out, and he missed his flight.
He should be grateful they are doing their job.
Debra J. Saunders says, February 14, 2010: "If ever there was a person you want the TSA to look at very carefully, it's a young male
[with the profile above]
and it would amount to professional malpractice if TSA and FBI agents did not search and question George."
But George is not grateful.
Instead he is suing to make security's job harder,
which will only make it easier for jihadis like the
Dec 2009 bomber
to slip through.
Robert Spencer notes, February 12, 2010, that he himself has been stopped many times, since he often has jihad-related documents in his possession.
"But I didn't mind. Because I knew what they were doing. I knew they weren't holding the bearded, swarthy fellow with notes full of jihad and hate because they don't like people of Middle Eastern descent, or because they hate Muslims, or what have you. They were doing their job, which was to protect the American people. Nick George ... should realize that.""Those who are thus inconvenienced should consider it a small price to pay in order to head off the next terror attack."
George "is considering a career as a U.S. diplomat in the Middle East.
... He plans to take the State Department exam to become a foreign service officer."
God help us if the State Department is full of people like this.
Comment about his career plan:
"Please, please, don't."
This is how Israel does it.
Arabs and Muslims get extra security checks, Jews get less.
Young men get more security checks than old ladies.
Passengers in high-risk groups
are asked questions about who they are, what they do, who their contacts are,
and so on.
We don't like it. (Imagine singling out Pakistani and Arab families for extra checks in Britain,
while letting white British families go on board.)
But you can't deny it works.
Israeli aircraft have been the
no.1 target of Islamic terror since 1968.
And yet Islamic terrorists have managed no successful attacks
that got past Israeli security
(All other attacks on Israeli aircraft
got past other countries' security,
not Israeli security.)
Michael J. Totten says we (non-Israelis) do it all wrong:
"After 9/11, everything sharp - even tweezers - was banned. ...
I can think of all sorts of things a person could use to wreak havoc on a plane that aren't banned. Security officials should pay less attention to objects, and more attention to people.
The Israelis do. They are, out of dreadful necessity, the world's foremost experts in counterterrorism. And they couldn't care less about what your grandmother brings on a plane. Instead, officials at Ben Gurion International Airport interview everyone in line before they're even allowed to check in.
And Israeli officials profile. They don't profile racially, but they profile. ...
If they pull you aside, you had better tell them the truth. They'll ask you so many wildly unpredictable questions so quickly, you couldn't possibly invent a fake story and keep it all straight. Don't even try.
Israelis don't use security theater to make passengers feel like they're safe. They use real security measures to ensure that travelers actually are safe. Even when suicide bombers exploded themselves almost daily in Israeli cities, not a single one managed to get through that airport."
In Defence of Racial Profiling, Anthony Reich, 6 Dec 2009:
"I feel that the policy of racial profiling adopted by El Al has more than justified itself. The airline has an exemplary security record ...
It is also noticeable that El Al was not forced to make wholesale changes to its security checks in light of the additional threats presented in the post-September 11 world. El Al is the only airline that routinely continues to use stainless steel cutlery on all its flights, and Israel is the only airport that continues to allow passengers to board flights with liquids in their hand luggage. In fact, it is my impression that El Al checks are much easier to negotiate these days than those of other airlines. I have never yet been asked to remove my belt or shoes prior to boarding an El Al flight. I cannot say the same for other airlines that I have recently flown with."
Outside Israel, most airport security
is pointless "theatre", not about security at all,
but about making people
As a result, terror attacks are much more likely to hit non-Israeli airlines.
For all its offensive and intrusive "security theatre",
the TSA has never caught a single terrorist.
Lily J. Kosner, July 2011:
"In more than a decade in existence, the TSA has not been credited with catching any individual charged with a terrorism-related crime."
Bruce Schneier, Mar 2012:
"in the entire decade or so of airport security since the attacks on America on September 11th 2001,
the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has not foiled a single terrorist plot or caught a single terrorist."
the TSA says
that it catches over 1,000 firearms in carry-on bags every year,
and many more dangerous items.
It seems that almost none of these were part of terrorist plots, though.
kind of "security theatre" crap
is why western airlines are still regularly hit by Islamic terrorist attacks.
And the absence of this kind of crap in Israel
is why Israeli airlines are terror-free since 1972.
