Flight MH370: Death By Islamic Jihad?

For a while it seemed that this might remain a mystery for perhaps decades but it’s beginning to look a lot like Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 was deliberately landed on the ocean in an act of Islamic jihad.

Walid Shoebat’s investigation into the matter is a disturbing but necessary consideration (the link above includes Shoebat’s images and hyperlinks):

So what does a civilian jetliner loaded with innocent passengers landing in the ocean have anything to do with Islamic martyrdom?

Well, a lot. I will tell you in a few seconds (or minutes), it all depends on how fast you want to read.

But first some background. When flight MH370 disappeared, Shoebat.com back on December 30, 2014 reported: “A former Boeing 777 pilot has claimed missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 could have only veered off course due to sabotage. “Is it a coincidence that this track managed to avoid Indonesian, Thai and then Indian military radar?” the Boeing 777 pilot said. He also stipulates for air traffic control to lose secondary radar contact with MH370 someone would have had to interfere with the systems.” And as far back as March 14, 2014, Shoebat.com reported: “Sources told Reuters that the flight path of an unidentified aircraft, which investigators believe was MH370, followed a route with specific navigational waypoints, suggesting someone with aviation training was at the helm.”

But of course, our reporting might be ruled out as “conspiracy theory”?

Not any longer. Especially that our conclusion shows the captain was trying to avoid radar and recently, on April 16th, 2015, over a year later, the BBC reported under the title: “Flight MH370: Could it have been suicide?

Excuse me? Was the BBC only catching up to a conspiracy theory? The report the BBC provided discusses Captain Simon Hardy’s analysis of flight MH370:

He’s convinced about something that no pilot, no passenger, nobody in fact wants to think is possible – that the captain of the flight, Zaharie Shah, deliberately hid the plane from radar and flew it thousands of miles off course, before it came down in the ocean. He says the clues are in the route it took after it vanished from air traffic control. It turned back on itself and flew along the border of Malaysia and Thailand. “It flew in and out of the countries eight times,” he says. “This is probably very accurate flying rather than just a coincidence. As both air traffic controllers in both those countries would probably assume that the aircraft was in the other country’s jurisdiction and not pay it any attention … “We know what happened,” David Learmount, safety editor at Flight Global, has said of MH370. “There’s only one thing it can be – a deliberate act by someone on board, probably the captain.”

And this is not only the views of Hardy and Learmount, this view gains momentum, especially that the Australian investigators describe Hardy’s theory as “credible”.

We have been saying this way before all these researchers. This is no “conspiracy theory” but is currently the most plausible scenario. Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah has been identified by Malaysian police as the prime suspect.

Now here is the kicker. Hardy spent six months analysing the known MH370 data and concluded that the plane was:

“intentionally landed on the Indian Ocean and sank intact just 20 nautical miles (37km) outside the current search area.”

“landed” and “sank intact” instead of crashing, is perhaps a clue, perhaps not to an aviation expert, but an expert on the rules of Islamic martyrdom. First of all, the flaperon that was found does not rule out Hardy’s theory and in fact supports it. This is one piece that will roughly hit the water and come loose. Landing on water is no soft landing.

But what Hardy needs to be aware of is that in Islam, it is not only the warrior in battle who is considered “martyr”. If Hardy’s theory proves true, Shah was designing a meticulous plan, not just on how he weaved through all the detection, but he must have meticulously considered his fate: drowning. In Islam, most Muslims know (which most westerners are unaware of), when a Muslim dies by drowning, he is automatically considered a “martyr” and is perhaps why Shah “landed” instead of crashing, since death due to an impact spoils the recipe and he might end up in hell. Under the classification of martyrdom in Islam, it states:

“… he who dies of a stomach disease is a martyr; and he who is drowned is a martyr.” [Sahih Muslim].

What is conclusive, is that Captain Shah, was an activist fighting for the release of his Islamist Malaysian opposition politician Anwar Ibrahim, who has recently been jailed on sex charges that his supporters (including Shah) say are trumped-up. Here Ibrahim he can be seen with the spiritual guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi:

This would make Shah an Islamist. The suicide theory, the most plausible one so far, is perhaps the first thing to consider when including the fact that the pilot was Muslim. And while such act is not considered terrorism by the West, they better start adjusting their policies. Although Shah’s drowning was intentional, which many will object as “suicide” which Islam prohibits, this is incorrect.

One discussion amongst Islamists is the story of the suicide of 700 Muslims on a ship which they deliberetly sank and committed mass suicide. Why?Instead of surrendering the ship to Richard The Lionheart, they chose to poke holes in it and drown with it. They were considered “martyrs”. All one has to do is read the works of the famed terrorist, Anwar Al-Awlaki’s work who tells the story:

“If the intentions of the Muslim are good and for the sake of Allah then he [the one who drowns] is a shaheed [martyr] whether he died by the enemy or by his own hands. It is the intention that counts … Salahudeen counted the [700] casualties as martyrs in the path of Allah.”

Hiring Muslim pilots can be hazardous to the health of the airline industry. Call it racism or whatever, anyone who does not like such realities can bang their head on a wall or choose to drown in the sea of Gaza after they convert to Islam.

But Islamic sanctioned suicide comes in different flavors. Regarding the other flight, QZ8501, it was different in that it crashed. On January 20th, 2015, the BBC reported that:

The AirAsia flight that crashed in the Java Sea, killing 162 people, climbed too fast before stalling, Indonesia’s transport minister has said. Ignasius Jonan told a parliamentary hearing in Jakarta that flight QZ8501 had ascended at a speed of 6,000ft (1,828m) per minute. He said it was not normal for a passenger jet to climb so fast. Mr Jonan told the hearing that radar data from the moments before the plane was lost revealed its speed of ascent. “It is not normal to climb like that. It’s very rare for commercial planes, which normally climb just 1,000 to 2,000 feet per minute,” he said. “It can only be done by a fighter jet.”

While the media speaks of the differences between both flights (and there are differences), so far we have even more serious similarities. The chances of both flights from the same area, both flights had Muslim pilots, both flights have a high possibility of turning off transponders, both flights veering off course and both flights had no trace and both flights making no distress signals, makes the probabilities of an accident less likely and the probabilities of foul play likely. For unknown reasons to this day, this particular Boeing 777 on flight MH370 veered off its original flight path and did not send any distress signal, similar to flight QZ8501.

Call me an Islamophobe, but when I research the pilot from the missing flight QZ8501 Captain Iriyanto (I access the local news in Indonesian, not the news in English), there I find out that the pilot of the missing flight QZ8501 and like the pilot on the other missing flight MH370 are both devout Muslims. When I see all this, I get somewhat paranoid. Translating from Indonesian I find the following:

“Iriyanto was also active in the community as a board member and chairman of the mosque at his residence in Pondok Jati Block BC 12 Village Pagerwojo, Buduran, Sidoarjo.”

“In addition to serving as Chairman of RT 39, Iriyanto also served as a board leader of Masjid Nurul Yaqin, which is located in the housing complex.”

“He was also diligent in worship. When everyone was at home, he would certainly be seen praying in congregation in the mosque”.

But perhaps the only way to gain credibility is to find what we report is also carried by “credible” journalists. Western Journalism reported:

According to an exclusive report by Walid Shoebat, the lead pilots aboard both Malaysia Airlines flight 370 and AirAsia flight QZ8501 shared one frightening trait: a deep devotion to Islam. Shoebat, a self-professed former Islamic terrorist who converted to Christianity and has since spoken out against the violence associated with his former faith, pointed out that the captain of the flight that disappeared over the Java Sea this past weekend had dark and deadly extremist ties.

His report relied in part on Indonesian news sources, which described Captain Iriyanto as a devout Muslim.

English translations of the foreign reports, Shoebat wrote, indicate the pilot was “active in the community as a board member and chairman of the mosque at his residence” and “also served as a board leader of Masjid Nurul Yaqin, which is located in the housing complex.”

Not only was he a faithful follower of Islam, reports also indicate he spent nearly a decade as an airman for the Indonesian military. The jets he flew were used in missions until the end of the 20th century and were reportedly responsible for the annihilation of about one-third of East Timor’s predominantly Christian population.

Shoebat wrote that both the pilot and co-pilot of flight MH370 were also devout Muslims. He also pointed out that both flights lost radar contact under suspicious circumstances.

While wreckage from the latest jet has been found, speculation still surrounds the disappearance of MH370, with some suggesting it landed safely to await use in a future terrorist operation.

Though his report affirms there is no concrete evidence that the pilots’ respective Islamic faith played any role in the disappearance of these jets, Shoebat concludes that such a scenario is “not far-fetched,” adding that “being paranoid at times is better than being skeptic.”

We are not conspiracy theorists. The real conspiracy theorists who reckon the CIA hijacked it to Diego Garcia – or anywhere else – are going to have to search their imaginations for an alternative explanation (of course they will create a conspiracy where that flaperon came from). As when it comes to QZ8501, while we still await a transcript from the Black Box, the cries of “Allahu Akbar” from the cockpit was confirmed, but they ruled out terrorism, of course, since by western definition, Islamic terrorism is only considered “terrorism” when Muslims are ‘martyred’ for a political cause and this does not include “personal martyrdom” (see Chatanooga), which the West in collective-denial lemming behavior categorize such actions as suicide. And since this is a “blog” and not the BBC, everything we say here is of course all “conspiracy theory”.

However, I still think that being somewhat “paranoid” is a good thing.

Admittedly, Shoebat could be wrong but we are at the point where that would actually be a surprise. All these planes disappearing and going down in controlled descents are either serious coincidences or they aren’t and the latter seems more likely by far.

Even if this was an accident, the evidence that Islam is the greatest threat of our generation has actually been clear for many generations.

The church carries the only good news available – salvation in Christ Jesus and God’s coming Kingdom – but governments also have their God-ordained role to play in areas like border defence and, if necessary, warfare.

It’s time for Western governments to get their act together regarding Islam.


When Muslims Set Fire To Jews: An Abridged History

In the world of film, an auteur is known for a personal style that permeates their work. 

Names like Orson Welles, Tim Burton, Steven Spielberg, and Baz Luhrmann have all created iconic visual and narrative distinctives that define them and make their work easily recognisable. Likewise, the compositions of John Williams and Danny Elfman are often instantly discerned.

Worldviews are no different.

Every worldview produces values and beliefs and define the lives of adherents, often shaping entire nations and cultures for generations.

Islam has a long history of murdering Jews in cruel ways and fire is a repeating auteuristic theme.

Lest we mistake examples of Islamic fire bombing and burning Jews for “lone wolf” attacks and “isolated” incidents, Daniel Greenfield reels out some fiery moments that unequivocally articulate what Islam is all about:

The world was outraged when ISIS burned a man in a cage, but Muslim terrorists have been burning Jews alive with little outrage and less attention.

This war, in which cars and buses are torched with families still inside, is not the work of a tiny minority of extremists. Its perpetrators have the support of the Palestinian Authority. Some have been set free from Israeli prisons through the intervention of the PA, Barack Hussein Obama and John Kerry.

This week Inbar, a young mother of three, was burned over 15 percent of her body after a Molotov cocktail was thrown at her car in Jerusalem. Despite her injuries, she was one of the lucky ones.

Last year Ayala Shapira, an 11-year-old girl, was on the way home from math class. Her parents were driving her back to the village of El Matan (God’s Gift) when Muslim terrorists threw firebombs at their car. The bomb smashed through the window and landed on her lap setting her hair and clothes on fire.

“I just saw something burning fly at us and suddenly everything exploded,” Ayala would later say.

The 11-year-old girl reached into the fire to open her seatbelt and rolled on the ground to put out the flames, but she still suffered third-degree burns over 40 percent of her face and upper body.

Some children attacked by firebomb wielding Muslim terrorists were not so lucky.

Rachel Weiss and her three sons, Netanel, 3, Rafael, 2, and Efraim, 10 months, burned together on a passenger bus, with the young mother throwing herself over her children to try and protect them.

All four were buried together in one grave.

Two American passengers, Sandy and Dov Bloom, were also riding the bus to Jerusalem. They had left their children with their grandparents. The Molotov cocktails set them on fire. Sandy was pushed into Elisha’s spring, named after the Biblical prophet who had healed the waters, renamed Ain es-Sultan by the Muslim invaders seeking to honor their own murderous tyrant in place of the ancient prophet.

The Muslim terrorists had mixed glue and gasoline so that the burning mixture would stick to the skin of their victims. It took years of surgery for the American couple to begin the road to recovery.

Mahmoud Kharbish and Juma’a Adem, the perpetrators of the brutal attack, were freed by Israel under pressure from Obama and Kerry to bring the PLO back to the negotiating table. Along with the other freed terrorists, they were hailed as heroes by President Abbas and were eligible for monthly salaries.

The Moses family was driving on a pre-holiday shopping trip before Passover when their car was struck by a Muslim firebomb. Ofra Moses, who was five-months pregnant, wasn’t able to get her seatbelt open and burned to death. It took her 5-year-old son Tal another three months to die of his burns.  

His 8-year-old sister Adi suffered severe burns as her father rolled her burning body in the sand to put out the flames. “I looked in the direction of our car and watched as my mother burned in front of my eyes,” she recalls.

She still remembers lying bandaged while her little brother screamed in pain in the next room.

Mohammad Daoud, the Muslim terrorist who did this to the family, was given two life sentences and an additional 72 years. But when the PLO demanded his release, Obama and Kerry forced Israel to comply.

Israelis who kill Muslims are considered pariahs. Muslims who burn Jews to death are glorified as heroes. And there are many such aspiring heroes, eager for a Palestinian Authority salary funded by American and European foreign aid and a “Get Out of Jail Free” card dispensed by Obama and Kerry.

Last week alone, there were over a dozen firebomb attacks. This year so far there were 102 firebomb attacks. Even the Intifada itself began when a Molotov cocktail was thrown at Israeli soldiers. Over the next four years, there were 3,600 firebomb attacks. Burning Jews to death is what Palestine is all about.

And then there are the Arson Jihad forest fires which can threaten entire neighborhoods. The latest such fire, which forced the evacuation of hundreds of people in a Jerusalem neighborhood, was traced back to two firebombs. Two earlier forest fires last month had also been traced back to firebombs. 

But to the State Department, throwing firebombs at Jews is no big deal.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki argued that throwing a Molotov cocktail is not terrorism and offered condolences to an attacker who was shot while throwing a firebomb and then buried in a Hamas headband. The Weiss and Moses families might disagree, but few of them survived to argue their case.

And in any case, the administration isn’t listening.

An administration that contrived the release of the monsters who torched the Weiss and Moses families is not likely to consider burning Jews alive to be terrorism.

But the Muslim Arson Jihad has also targeted Jews beyond Israel’s borders.

In Montreal, Sleiman El-Merhebi and Simon Zogheib threw a firebomb through the window of a Jewish school library before Passover destroying 15,000 books. Yousef Sandouga threw a Molotov cocktail at the window of the Edmonton Beth Shalom (House of Peace) synagogue, but instead set himself on fire.

Last year, Molotov cocktails were thrown at synagogues in France, Germany and Brussels. Two years earlier, in a foreboding preview of the massacre of Jews in a Kosher deli before the Sabbath (described by Obama as zealots who “randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris”), another Kosher supermarket was bombed by two men in black. Last year, it was finally burned to the ground.

In New York City, a year before September 11, Muslims threw firebombs at a synagogue in the Bronx. “A bias-motivated attempt to firebomb a synagogue?” the New York Times asked. “Or a misguided message critical of Israeli policies against Palestinians?”

It is tempting to reduce Islamic terror to a response to the rebirth of Israel, as the New York Times did, but Muslims did not begin burning Jews to death in the twentieth century.

The Jewish cemetery of old Oufrane in Morocco is a field of lonely broken stones. Among all the other shattered graves of their people, lie the ashes of fifty martyrs, Jews who had been burned to death for refusing to convert to Islam in 1790. In the same year that the Jews of Newport had thanked George Washington for his role in bringing about a nation “generously affording to all liberty of conscience”, Muslims were still burning Jews to death for their conscience and their faith.

The Fifty Martyrs of Ourfrane were not aberrations. The Jews of Morocco, and those of many other places, lived under a law which decreed that they could be burned to death at the word of a Muslim.

In 1875, as Alexander Graham Bell was inventing the telephone, Jews were being burned to death under Islamic law in Iran. Over a century later, Ayatollah Khomeini told his followers, “Killing is a form of mercy… sometimes a person cannot be reformed unless he is cut up and burnt… you must kill, burn and lock up those in opposition.”

Khomeini meant it literally. The origins of the Islamic Revolution of Iran lay in the Cinema Rex fire in which Islamic terrorists launched a false flag operation, locked the doors of the movie theater because of its blasphemous nature and set it on fire killing four hundred people.

This is an Islamic state of mind that has never gone away.

One of the Muslim terrorists behind the Bali bombings, which killed over 200 people in Indonesia, shouted, “Allahu Akbar” and “Burn the Jews” before his verdict was read.

Savages worship fire for its primal destructive power. Whether burning books, buildings or people, the ability to destroy is their idea of a spiritual experience. Islam swept across civilizations like a fire, burning people and libraries, destroying ideas and cultures, leaving behind slavery and despair in its wake.

The fires are burning again from Iraq to Israel. Firebombs are flying into synagogues across Europe. The great hatred of Islam burns in the hearts of a billion bigots. Death and fire follow in their wake.

But the world is only outraged when Muslims die. It is not outraged when Muslims kill. When Muslims burn Jews or massacre Christians, it shrugs and moves on.

These days, any occurance of terrorism leads one to instantly suspect Islam, simultaneously sparking the mainstream media and leftist politicians into laborious efforts to divert attention elsewhere.

That’s the mark of an auteur.

Islamic State Planning “Armaggedon-Like World War” In India

So the Islamic State is actually pretty successful for what it’s worth.

The implication is that violent jihad does seem to resonate with many Muslims, whether they act as “lone wolves” in the West or they run and join the pack in Syria and Iraq.
All the rape, brutality, beheadings, crucifixions, and children being taught to murder people in the name of Islam really is just a taste of what Islamic caliphates have done historically and what one antichrist-led caliphate will do at the end of this age.

In the mean time IS has plans to expand their murderous treachery into India, where sizable Muslim minorities frequently go head to head with Buddhist communities:

The American Media Institute revealed that an ISIS recruitment pamphlet had been found in Pakistan outlining a plan for an ‘Armageddon-like world war’ that the group plans to initiate in India. According to the pamphlet, ISIS hopes to build up an army in Afghanistan and Pakistan, collecting enough forces to create a massive war of apocalyptic proportions to end the world. The group will initiate this war in a country that contains the third-largest population of Muslims in the world.

The pamphlet, which was reviewed by USA Today, is written in Urdu, and contains 32 pages. It also outlines how ISIS forces will attack US soldiers as they withdraw from Afghanistan, targeting US diplomats and Pakistani officials in the process.

The pamphlet was obtained from a Pakistani citizen who is connected to the Pakistani wing of the Taliban. It was brought to the US by the AMI and translated from Urdu by Harvard researcher and translator Mustafa Samdani.

The document, entitled “A Brief History of the Islamic State Caliphate (ISC), The Caliphate According to the Prophet,” was deemed authentic by US intelligence officials.

The goal of ISIS, according to the document, is to unite the various Islamic militant groups, including various branches of the Taliban, under one umbrella. It encourages Al-Qaeda to join up, and states that Islamic State’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, should be recognized as the leader of the world’s one billion Muslims at the head of a new religious empire.

“Accept the fact that this caliphate will survive and prosper until it takes over the entire world and beheads every last person that rebels against Allah,” it proclaims. “This is the bitter truth, swallow it.”

Retired Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who also reviewed the document, said it “represents the Islamic State’s campaign plan and is something, as an intelligence officer, I would not only want to capture, but fully exploit. It lays out their intent, their goals and objectives, a red flag to which we must pay attention.”

The pamphlet states that plans for a war on India are already underway, and the the US, when it will engage with ISIS’s forces, will face the entire Muslim world as an opponent. “Even if the US tries to attack with all its allies, which undoubtedly it will, the ummah (Islamic nation) will be united, resulting in the final battle.”

Former CIA officer Bruce Riedel said that “attacking in India is the Holy Grail of South Asian jihadists.”

The pamphlet states that previous Muslim terror groups such as Al-Qaeda have been going about attacking the US in the wrong way. Direct confrontations with the US should be avoided, it says, and instead Arab efforts should be spent trying to create a stable caliphate.

It proclaims that “instead of wasting energy in a direct confrontation with the US, we should focus on an armed uprising in the Arab world for the establishment of the caliphate.”

ISIS has been wildly successful at recruiting tens of thousands of followers from around the world, and is now making headway in Pakistan and Afghanistan in its continuing effort to take over the region.

Islam has always given Muslims reason to behave like beasts but thankfully, not all Muslims are invested in the brutal violence that Islam’s founder exhibited.

Nonetheless, a very large portion are supportive of and committed to violence in paving the way of the ummah.

We must pray for all Muslims, the violent and the peaceful alike, so that they might encounter the Lord Jesus Christ and so be redeemed to God, just as we have been.
