10-year-old girl used as human bomb in Nigeria New Year’s Eve attack
January 1, 2017 — AFP reports: “One person was seriously injured when a suicide bomber aged around 10 blew herself up in a New Year’s Eve attack in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri, witnesses and aid workers told AFP Sunday.
The girl approached a crowd buying noodles from a food vendor in the Customs area of the city around 9:30 pm on Saturday and detonated her explosives, they said.
Although no one has claimed responsibility the attack bore the hallmark of Boko Haram Islamists who are notorious for using suicide bombers, mostly women and young girls, in attacking civilian targets.
‘The girl walked towards the crowd but she blew up before she could reach her target,’ said witness Grema Usman who lives in the area.
‘She died instantly, while one person was seriously hurt after he was hit by shrapnel.’…” (What murderous barbarians these groups are. Their hatred knows no limits. Jesus said in Matthew 18:6 – “But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” While the following report did not occur during the Christmas and New Year’s holiday, it demonstrates the extreme measures that these degenerates will go to. It has been reported that in a statement to the National Press Club in Washington DC in 1957, Golda Meir stated: “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” God’s Word states that: “…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance…” – Galatians 5:22 – 23. True peace will only come to this world when the “Prince of Peace” [Isaiah 9:6] returns to rule. See the next report.)
Syrian Jihadi Parents Kiss Daughters Goodbye Before One Is Blown Up in Suicide Bombing
December 22, 2016 — Breitbart.com reports: “Syrian ‘jihadi parents kissed their daughters goodbye shortly before one of them’ was blown up by a remote detonator in a suicide bombing attack on a police station.
Video shows a jihadi father telling the two children, aged 7 and 9 years old, ‘how to carry out suicide bomb attacks’ before a woman in a burka embraces them, the Daily Mail reports…
The 7-year-old is believed to have been killed in a suicide bombing attack on a police station in Damascus shortly after the video was filmed…
A separate video shows the girls dressed in wooly hats and coats, embracing their mother before they left the room.
A man behind the camera asks the mother why she is sending her children into jihad so young.
‘No one is young when it comes to jihad as every Muslim is supposed to participate in jihad,’ she replied.
A short time later on Dec. 16, the 7-year-old girl walked into the Damascus police station, asking to use the restroom before she is blown up in a bombing that also injured three officers, Reuters reported…”
Turkey nightclub shooting: Istanbul mourns victims as search continues
January 1, 2017 — Guardian.com reports: “Istanbul is on high alert as the hunt for a gunman, who fled after killing 39 people at a nightclub on New Year’s Eve, continues.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan vowed in a statement that Turkey would fight terrorism ‘till the end’ following the attack at Reina in Istanbul’s upscale Ortakoy neighbourhood.
‘Turkey will stand together and not give passage to dirty games of terrorists,’ he said.
Mehmet Görmez, Turkey’s most senior Muslim cleric, condemned the attack as ‘savagery’ and a ‘massacre that no Muslim conscience can accept’.
There was condemnation from around the world as well as inside Turkey. The US State Department described the attack as ‘heinous’ and the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, said it was ‘hard to imagine a more cynical crime’.
The attack came at the end of a year of terrorist incidents across Europe, including the driving of a truck into a Christmas market in Berlin earlier in December. The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, sent her condolences to the victims of the Istanbul attack, saying ‘terrorists … have carried out an inhumane and devious attack on people who wanted to celebrate the New Year together’…” (Islam’s murderers: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come…evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived” – II Timothy 3:1 & 13; and “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” – John 8:44.)
Islamic State Supporters Celebrate Berlin Truck ‘Attack’
December 20, 2016 — Breitbart.com reports: “Islamic State sympathizers and militants are celebrating an incident on Monday in which a lorry ploughed through a crowd of shoppers in a busy Christmas market in Berlin, reportedly killing nine people and injuring more than fifty.
The messages, obtained by Breitbart Jerusalem, were posted to a closed chat group that utilizes the encrypted Telegram messaging service. The chat group serves as an internal Twitter of sorts for IS jihadists and sympathizers, and it has been used in the past to issue IS communications.
The messages also celebrated the assassination on Tuesday of Russia’s ambassador to Turkey. That murder, which was caught on video and was perpetuated at a public event in front of witnesses, was reportedly carried out by an off-duty police officer…” (Killing is rewarded in Islam. Not only do they receive 72 virgins as righteous and martyred godly men, but what even more shocking is they get to choose 70 relatives and friends to go to heaven. Their plan of winning the lost is a sick one and against God’s plan which is: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” – John 3:16.)
The New Tools of Terror: Vehicular Violence at Center of Recent Attacks
December 21, 2016 — ABCNews.go.com reports: “With the news that ISIS has claimed responsibility for Monday’s attack in Berlin, the world is seeing another example of terrorists trading bullets and bombs for cars and trucks as a way to more discreetly unleash carnage across the world.
On Tuesday afternoon, SITE Intelligence reported that the ISIS terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack, calling the fugitive terror truck driver a ‘soldier of the Islamic State,’ that worked ‘in response to calls for targeting nationals of the international coalition.’
The attack follows an increasingly familiar pattern. Over the past six months, attackers have used vehicles to mow down crowds during Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, France; to ram a pack of students on the campus of Ohio State University; and, most recently, to plow through a Christmas market in Berlin.
These incidents are not coincidental, however.
Since at least the summer of 2014, the ISIS terror group has been calling on its followers to use vehicles in attacks on innocents.
‘If you are not able to find an IED [improvised explosive device] or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies,’ ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad Al-Adnani said in Sept. 2014, according to SITE Intelligence. ‘Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.’…” (This tactic is nothing new. In 2010, al-Qaeda published its second edition of Inspire magazine where they encouraged their followers to use a pick-up truck as a mowing machine to “…mow down the enemies of Allah.” Romans 1:30 describes such people as “…inventors of evil things…”)
