“He shouted, ‘Allahu Akbar’ and joined in the killing.”
I have avoided a thorough reading or viewing of the Hamas atrocities on Oct 7. I know enough of what evil is and what can be done to the human body, especially that of vulnerable children and girls, that I don’t need all the graphic detail.
There are other things that jump out at me.
In the video, terrorists were shouting in Arabic with a Palestinian accent, they looked content and proud as they committed sadistic atrocities. They were talking among themselves saying ‘I swear to Allah, I just killed the coward Jew dog who was hiding under the table’. That ‘Jew dog’ was a young girl who was seen alive in the video hiding under table-desk. They shot her at close range.
Throughout the video words such as ‘Allahu Akbar’, meaning God is great, ‘shot’, ‘give me a knife’, and ‘pray to Allah to bless me with another Jew dog to kill’ were heard.
Allahu Akbar, the claim that Allah and therefore Islam are superior to members of other religions, is an abiding theme.
Israeli civilians, including elderly people and mothers with children, paraded through the streets of Gaza as locals chant “allahu akbar” – they all seemed too hellish, too ghastly to be real
Over and over again, Allahu Akbar, the supremacist battle cry accompanies the atrocities, because it is what motivates them
The two terrorists then step close to a house. They peep inside through an open window. The terrorist in front takes aim and fires a single shot. A loud groan, likely, of a senior citizen, is heard.
It is not clear if it’s this same house or another, but the two men then step onto the front porch of the house and using a lighter, set it ablaze. The two men then leave, one of them whispering Allahu Akbar.
The next clip is mobile footage taken by a Hamas terrorist inside a house. Chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’, he opens a room door revealing blood spattered on the floor and four bodies piled up.
Another home invasion by a group of Hamas terrorists shows them entering what appears to be a study. One of the home’s occupants is clearly under the table, though it isn’t clear if he/she is alive or shot earlier. The terrorists chant Allahu Akbar and fire into the table. One of the terrorists is holding an American M4A1 carbine.
Next is a clip that Hamas had posted on social media soon after the attack, showing terrorists dragging a woman (her hands bound, face bloodied) out of the boot of a jeep and pushing her into the back seat. This appears to be in Gaza. A small crowd forms chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’, while two men stand with their middle fingers raised akimbo.
The footage then cuts to a terrorist dragging a woman’s body out of a car and tossing it into a field. Amidst chants of Allahu Akbar, a body is set on fire on the road.
I don’t need the full graphic detail, some of which you will find if you follow the above links. It is more important to understand what we are up against.
And what we are up against is this. Allahu Akbar. When you understand Allahu Akbar, you understand Islam and all the atrocities. And you understand what it is we are fighting and why it is all over the world.
Forget Israel for a moment.
Special agent Scott Wickland said that he heard cries of “Allahu Akbar” before the Benghazi attack. And then the guards ran for their guns.
In Nice, France, the Islamic terrorist who killed 86 people and wounded over 400 by running them over with a truck, shouted, “Allahu Akbar”. The 9/11 hijackers had the same message, “Allahu Akbar”.
Any relationship you have is at risk of getting ‘Allahu Akbared’. Listen to a Yazidi in Iraq.
Sabri is a nurse and tells me he had a Sunni Arab colleague, who was also a nurse. They had been friends for 10 years.
“But when ISIS came along, he shouted, ‘Allahu Akbar’ and joined in the killing,” he adds. He couldn’t believe someone who had spent his life helping people would suddenly be so inhumane. “It was a disaster, psychologically.”
That’s it. The moment comes and the devout gleefully rush to fulfill the will of Allah by committing the worst atrocities.
It’s not about Israel, America, capitalism, colonialism or geopolitics. It’s about Allahu Akbar.
