Yemen: mass murder in mosques


Sunni vs Shia

Sunni vs Shia

“Are you the Judean People’s Front?” “Fuck off! We’re the People’s Front of Judea!”

That classic scene from Monty Python’s Life of Brian perfectly sums up the ridiculous internecine battles within Islam. Just as nobody in the real world cared whether it was the JPF or the PFJ, nobody cares whether it’s sunni or shia – except the sunnis and shias themselves who think nothing of killing each other in atrocities such as this.

Only an intellectually backward, superstitious and primitive ideology such as Islam would possibly take such extreme actions. Just like killing someone for looking at a Qur’an in a funny way, when the big issues are inconsequential, the tiny ones are magnified.

More inter-faith dialogue and tolerance from the Religion of Peace:

MULTIPLE suicide bombings have killed at least 142 people at Shiite mosques in Yemen’s capital in one of the country’s deadliest jihadist attacks.

The killings were the first claimed by Islamic State in Yemen and represent a strong show of force by the group in a country where the group’s rival Al-Qa’ida is the most prominent jihadist organisation, and which reacted by saying it would not attack mosques.

Charred bodies and pools of blood were at the scene of the blasts, which targeted supporters of the Huthi Shiite militia that has seized control of the capital Sanaa.

Worshippers rushed the wounded to hospitals in pick-up trucks, while others removed mutilated bodies.

One suicide bomber struck inside Badr mosque in southern Sanaa while another targeted worshippers as they fled outside, witnesses said.

A third suicide bomber targeted Al-Hashush mosque in northern Sanaa, while a fourth struck outside the mosque, according to the Saba news agency, which is now controlled by the Huthis.

Nashwan al-Atab, a member of the health ministry’s operations committee, told AFP 142 people were killed and at least 351 wounded. (source)

It would be laughable if it weren’t so tragic. As an antidote, here’s Python:

  1. A quote on Islam from 1898:
    He was a prophet in his own time. He died on 24th January 1965, at the grand old age of 90 and, after a lifetime of service to his country, was accorded a State funeral.

    “Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.”
    He further said,
    “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.
    The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may+ show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
    No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.”
    Sir Winston Churchill;

    And yet, the world is sending over hundreds of troops to help sunni kill shia or is it the other way round ?… and who cares! Except that our brave soldiers will be killed for these madmen.
