The two Muslim terrorists are not yet identified
They were chanting Allahu Akbar
They hacked the victim with knives and a machete and eventually beheaded him
It happened in broad daylight yesterday Wednesday
They held up body parts and shouted “We swear by Allah never to stop killing you.”
They did not flee but wandered around, perhaps waiting for other soldiers to emerge from the barracks some 400 yards away
The London Police arrived after 20 minutes. The Jihadists ran towards them brandishing knives.
They were shot and injured and taken to separate hospitals and placed under heavy guard
This is the first such attack by Jihadists in a Western European capital city.
One journalist has listened very carefully to the video tape and has written down what the Jihadist said, which shows the action is rooted in the Koran. “He says, “Surat at-Tawba through…many, many ayat throughout the Qur’an that…we must fight them as they fight us…”
The Woolwich Jihadist clearly enough refers to “Surat at Tawba and that is precisely what has been left out by all of the capitalist press this morning. But it is significant.
Surat at-Tawba is the ninth chapter of the Qur’an, and according to Islamic scholars is the last one or one of the last ones to have been revealed that contain doctrinal content — which means that it takes precedence over the others. Some highlights:
“And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” — 9:5
“Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people and remove the fury in the believers’ hearts. And Allah turns in forgiveness to whom He wills; and Allah is Knowing and Wise.” — 9:14-15
“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.” — 9:29
“O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination.” — 9:73
“O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous.” — 9:123
It is clear that this is a religious issue rooted in the religion of Islam, as Islam rapidly morphs into the Fascist ideology of today. It is inseparable from Antisemitism and inseparable from the campaign of all of the West behind the Fascist ideology of the “Palestinians” which has grown up since 1967 as a way to créate a new Holocaust.
It is not as the pro-Islamist Stalinist Leftist try to tell us, a “normal” reaction to the war in Iraq, or the war in Afghanistan. It comes straight out of the religion/`political ideology of Islam.
The very first reaction of Bush after the 9-11 atrocity was to say, as he stood in the ashes of that atrocity, that “Islam is a religion of peace”
That will also be the answer of Cameron and the Coalition to this latest atrocity.
The Stalinist Leftists who have been in bed now for a long time with Islam will take a position of arguing that this is just a normal reaction to the wars conducted abroad by Imperialism.
In fact the Stalinist Leftists will echo and back up what the Jihadist killer told the passers-by in Woolwich, that it was a reaction to the wars against “Muslims” abroad.
So far the revisionist fake-Trotskyist group wsws has not responded!!!
It will take a new party that stands in the tradition of Marx and Trotsky, and opposed to Stalinism, to be able to call Islam what exactly it is.
In the meantime the Stalinist Leftists will continue to draw water from the Stalinist well on behalf of Islam Jihad
FIRST SUCH OPEN ATTACK IN A WESTERN CAPITAL CITY
