Following are recent examples of Islamic terror:
Several years ago, Muslim terrorists began bombing innocent French civilians. Here is one article:
Approximately 100,000 people have been killed in Algeria during the last seven years or so. Below is one story from a survivor of an Islamic terrorist attack. The Muslim terrorists are not responsible for all the deaths; the Algerian police and army have also killed many. However, the Muslim terrorists frequently target civilians, children, and those who are unable to defend themselves. In one account, Muslim terrorists stabbed to death four French nuns.
Blida, Algeria. In the dead of night, in the name of Islam, four terrorists burst into the home of 17-year-old Salima Amina Zenagui.
Accusing her of loose morals, the Islamic fundamentalists ordered Zenagui to cover her auburn hair with a hijab head-scarf. Then they abducted her at gunpoint to their underground hideout, where the teenager was forced to marry a terrorist twice her age.
After a religious wedding ceremony, he raped her, with a warning that any resistance would mean certain death. The bleeding didn't stop for 15 days. The mental torture, and the physical cruelty, continued for another five months. During the long nights and endless days, Zenagui slowly lost her sanity, and the will to live.
Zenagui is one of thousands of young women and teenage girls believed to have been kidnapped by fundamentalist terrorists during Algeria's five-year Islamic insurgency. Forced into socalled temporary marriages that are a religious license to rape, their screams are soon silenced.
Most of the victims have their throats slit, their bodies dumped in wells, like the one discovered last week in Bentalha, just outside Algiers. Police were drawn by the stench of death to the 40-meter-deep well, where they found about 30 badly decomposed corpses of women and girls believed to have been abducted and raped after a massacre in the area a month ago.
Known as "zawaj al mutaa," or "marriage of pleasure," the controversial practice is disdained by mainstream Muslims today. It dates from Islam's early years, when fighters in a holy war helped themselves to single women during periods of hardship or isolation.
Zenagui believes her captors were fundamentalist terrorists from the GIA, who rationalize rape as a way of motivating their men to sacrifice themselves for Islam. Even as they mistreat their captive women, they worship their God. In their hideout, Zenagui watched them pray toward Mecca five times a day. They read the Koran, Islam's holy book, and often played inspirational cassette tapes about the Prophet Mohammed.
Many of the insurgency's 100,000 victims perished in these killing fields.
In March, 1992, Muslim terrorists blew up the Israeli Embassy in Argentina, killing 29 people. On July 18, 1994, a car bomb blew up the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association, killing nearly one hundred people.
In August, 1994, two car bombs blew up in London, one at the Israeli Embassy and another at a Jewish charity shop. An Iranian expatriate by the name of Manoucher Motamer indicated that Iran was responsible for the bombings.
In July, 1991, a Muslim murdered Hitoshi Igarashi, the Japanese man who translated The Satanic Verses into Japanese. He was stabbed to death in Tokyo. A Muslim living in Britain, Addul Quddus, who is a senior vice president of Britain's Muslim League, said, "The attacks are justified because people translating the book are also insulting the [Muslim] faith."
The Voice of the Martyrs Magazine, September, 1996, writes that "around 280 churches have been burned, demolished, stoned, and closed" since 1991 in Indonesia. "A June 9, 1996, attack in Surabaya, the second largest city in the country, was the worst yet, as 10 churches were simultaneously destroyed by Muslim mobs." The article further records that 5,000 Muslims took part in the riots.
These actions are not the work of a few terrorists. They are the work of normal Muslims. They know that Islam is fundamentally violent, and, as Muslims, they exercised their faith by attacking and destroying churches. It was their type of Jihad for Allah.
A Muslim stabbed, but failed to kill, Ettore Capriolo, the man who translated The Satanic Verses into Italian. The attack occurred in Milan, Italy.
In September, 1991, in Imbaba, a district of Cairo, hundreds of Muslims attacked Christians, burning down a church with a Pastor's wife inside. Other churches were attacked, and Christians were beaten. The Egtptian government had to send in 3,000 troops. During the last eight years, Muslims have murdered hundreds of Coptic Christians. Muslims wielding automatic weapons have sprayed even worshippers in church.
A CNN news report:
Authorities said tourists from Egypt, Switzerland, Germany, and Japan were among those killed in the attack, which tool place about 300 miles (500 km) south of Cairo. State television issued a brief statement saying "attackers hit a number of foreigners, Egyptians, and policemen, who exchanged fire with them," and the statement added that six attackers were killed in the shoot-out with police.
A spokesman for a travel agency in Luxor was quoted as saying that the gunmen opened fire indiscriminately on tourists after the tourists got off a bus and were about to enter a temple. Muslim extremists have repeatedly targeted tourist spots in recent years in an attempt to hurt one of the country's key industries and de- stabilize the government.
Prior to Monday, attacks by Muslim militants had killed 34 inter- national tourists in the past five years. Overall, about 1,100 people have been killed since 1992, when the extremists launched their campaign aimed at ousting President Hosni Mubarak.
In October, 1991, thousands of Muslims attached Christian churches, businesses, and homes in Kano, in predominantly Muslim northern Nigeria. An estimated 300 Christians were murdered. Muslims were upset because Christian evangelists had been converting Muslims in the region to Christianity.
When Muslims in Pakistan found a torn up Koran in a mosque, 30,000 attacked the only majority Christian town (Shanti Nagar) in Pakistan and destroyed half of it! Churches were burned, businesses were destroyed, and women and girls were raped. The Pakistani army had to intervene.
