The Promotion of Human Sacrifice and Cannibalism in Egypt
March 11, 2013 by Walid and Theodore Shoebat 0 Comments 1 Print This Post The promotion of ritual human sacrifice and cannibalism has been a topic of discussion on two Egyptian TV programs recently. On Al-Tahrir, Egyptian TV advisor Ahmad Abdo Maher discusses the high-school curriculum issued by the highest religious authority in Egypt, Al-Azhar University, which encouraged students to cannibalize apostates and Muslims who abandon praying. The schoolbook stipulated that the act can be carried out so long as the human flesh is eaten uncooked in respect to the dead body and that the act “does not necessitate a governor’s consent or is punishable by law.”  Here is the video: The other popular television program, Al-Nas with Safwat Hegazy, a famous Egyptian cleric who launched Mohammed Mursi’s campaign in 2012, sanctioned Aztec-style, ritualistic human sacrifice of a Shia cleric named Yasar Habib. Hegazy justified his threat against Habib, who resides in Great Britain, by giving a case-in-point from Islamic history. Hegazy made reference to when the governor of Iraq – Khalid Abdullah al-Kasri – dragged a shackled Jaad bin Durham to the mosque in Kufah and used him as the sacrificial offering (instead of an animal) and then crucified him: Does cannibalism make the case FOR Islamophobia? Pre-order the new book from Walid Shoebat, The Case FOR ISLAMOPHOBIA: Jihad by the Word; America’s Final Warning. Hegazy reminded his viewers that when Al-Kasri made his speech that day saying, “O people, sacrifice, Allah accepted your sacrifices. I am now sacrificing Jaad bin Durham.” Al-Kasri then slaughtered him in the mosque on the Sacrifical Day 119 A.H. This set the precedent that using a human being on the Islamic holiday – known as The Festival of Sacrifice – instead of an animal was preferable. The supporting views on such an edict are so pervasive that even one blog, The Cole Children Forum for Muslim children shares the story, since the account is supported by several of the most forceful theologians during the history of Islam like Al-Shafi’, Ibin Tayymiya, Bukhari, Dhahabi, Ibin Al-Qiyam, Darami and Ibin Katheer.  While Muslim scholars do not question the authenticity of the event, some question the legality of the act, since it is understood that Eid Al-Adha, The Festival of Sacrifice, is – according to Islam – the commemoration of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael but that he is remembered for sacrificing an animal (not a human being). However, Abdulaziz Bin Abdullah Al-Rajihi, a respected scholar in Saudi Arabia, expressed support for human sacrifice in at least one speech. Al-Rajihi’s is not someone to be ignored; he is a scholar who educated the previous chief Mufti of Saudi Arabia, the renowned Muhammad Ibrahim Al Sheikh. Today, Al-Azhar is a part of the Egyptian government and has the power to enact edicts as mandated by the new constitution. Under article 4, it states: “The noble Azhar is an independent Islamic institution of higher learning. It handles all its affairs without outside interference. It leads the call to Islam and assumes responsibility for religious studies and the Arabic language in Egypt and the world. The Azhar’s Body of Senior Scholars is to be consulted in matters pertaining to Islamic law (sharia).” While cannibalism is prohibited in Islam, exceptions do exist for apostates, adulterers and enemy combatants. The difficulty for some moderate scholars is that such an edict comes from the highest authority of Islamic jurisprudence. Abu ʿAbdullah Muhammad ibn Idris al-Shafi‘i, the founder of the major Shafie school of Sunni Islamic thought, writes: “One may eat the flesh of a human body. It is not allowed to kill a Muslim nor a free non-Muslim under Muslim rule (because he is useful for the society), nor a prisoner because he belongs to other Muslims. But you may kill an enemy fighter or an adulterer and eat his body.”  Such edicts are even being disseminated by many Muslim clerics in Egypt. Prominent Sheikh Muhammad Hussein Yaqub recently made a speech encouraging the cannibalization of Jewish flesh: “Our hatred, animosity, and rage toward the Jews grow. Our hatred of the Jews grows when we see them destroying our brothers. Rage boils within us. If only we could strangle the criminal Jews… If only we could strangle the Jews with our bare hands, and bite their heads off with our teeth, not with weapons.” Sheikh Safwat Hegazy has repeated a similar mantra when it comes to the desire to cannibalize Jews: “If our rulers let us, we would catch you [Jews] in the street, and we would devour you with our teeth.” Islamic history documents several acts of Islamic cannibalism. In 1148, one criminal named Rudwan fled from the police only to be arrested, put to death, decapitated, and cut to pieces. Those pieces were then eaten by Egyptian soldiers who believed that they would absorb his courage.  The phenomenon is not only historic, such ritualistic sacrifices exist today including crucifixions and cannibalism in Ramallah, using the flesh of Jews, seen at the :50 mark of this video: There are several beheadings in Syria that have surfaced, where jihadists are seen praising Allah as they watch sheep-style human slaughter. We have the video but it is far too gruesome to show. Of course, we cannot forget Momo the beheader, otherwise known as Muhammad the Midget. While the majority of pundits and even historians in the West limit their definition of such acts by defining them as ‘executions’, the facts remain; Islamic inspired beheadings are human sacrifices akin to Aztec rituals. Such rituals go back in history. Hertado de Mendoza in his The War in Granada during the time of the Spanish Inquisition, recounts that a great number of Muslims – under their leader Tahali – sacrificed twenty Christian girls by beheading and fried twenty friars in boiling olive oil, believing that their blood would appease Allah in order to gain victory against the Spaniards. When the Spanish soldiers approached these jihadists in Ohanez and drove them back, they discovered the heads, laid out in rows on the steps of a church, their hair neatly brushed. Mendoza mentions a similar situation that took place when the Spanish emperor Charles made an expedition against the Muslim Moors of Carthage, where the Muslims sacrificed five Christian children. They said their prayers and slaughtered them in the hopes that Allah would preserve them from the Spaniards.  Such issues are dealt with by collective denial in the West, where pundits and orientalists romanticize such history. For example, the Muslim warlord who had the greatest obsession with skulls and human sacrifice was Babur, founder of the Mughal Empire, which consisted of India, Pakistan, and much of Asia. Western orientalist Robert Irwin describes the works of Babur thusly: “This is one of the classics of world literature… Writing poetry, together with fighting, hunting and eating fruit, was to remain a lifelong enthusiasm.”  Some excerpts of Babur’s book should shed much light: “…the Afghans were not able to put up a fight. In a flash, 150 embattled Afghans were seized. Some were captured alive, but mostly only heads were brought…Those who were brought in alive were ordered beheaded, after which a tower of skulls was erected in the camp.”  and… “…cut off the heads of a hundred or so rebellious Afghans, which they brought back to Hangu. Another tower of skulls was erected.”  and… “A league farther down the Bajaur glen we stopped and ordered a tower of skulls erected on a rise.”  Irwin seems only capable of seeing the romance: “My pact and covenant with my beloved was not thus; he chose separation and left me distraught… what can one do with the whims of fate, which has separated friend from friend by force.”  Babur and his ilk even saw decapitated heads as being used for divination. When his soldier Arghun fought and beheaded an opponent named Ishqullah, he and Babur took the head and esteemed it, “as a good omen.”  When Babur was establishing his power in India, he took the town of Chanderi and “massacred the infidels, and brought it into the bosom of Islam,” after which a “tower of infidels’ skulls was erected on the hill on the northwest side of Chanderi.”  After he crushed the Indians of Khanua, Babur poetically praised the victory, ecstatically recounting how there “were piles of the slain, and towers of skulls” were erected: “…In every direction the soldiers of Islam went, they found a slain rebel at every step, and as the renowned army camp moved in pursuit of the defeated it found no space devoid of obliterated retinue… Many mountains of bodies were created, and on every mountain running streams of blood.”  But the love of skulls was not just during that Mughal era. In the Islamic play entitled, The Miracle Play of Hasan and Husain, which reenacts the life of Muhammad’s two grandsons and is based on oral tradition, it reads: “O Muslim, we will cut off thine enemies’ heads to prove our allegiance to thee! We will drink cups of blood from the skulls of thine enemies!”  Human sacrifice is thought to be a thing of the past. It vanished due to the influence of Judeo-Christian civilization. It is remembered in movies like Apocalypto and documentaries on the Aztec Empire. But perhaps we should ask: If the Aztecs are a thing of the past, what will life be like, if the same types of human sacrificial rituals become a daily reality? Indeed, the past has returned.

Cannibalism In Syria Causes An Extremely Rare Disease
By Ted on November 4, 2013 in General By Theodore Shoebat Its called Kuru, an extremely rare disease which virtually became extinct after extinguishing cannibalism in Papua New Guinea. Amazingly Kuru has now been found in 8 to 20 people, out of all places, in war-torn Syria, and the only way it could have come about, doctors confirmed, is through cannibalism and the consumption of human brain, as first reported by Arabian news source Zaman al-Wasal and substantiated by Orient News Television. Here is a documentary showing the connection between native sorcery, ritualized cannibalism, and its end result, Kuru: Two of the infected were sent from Syria to a hosptial in Ghazi Antab in Turkey for further examination to only be transferred to another hospital in Germany. One of the two already died, since Kuru is 100% fatal. Kuru is contagious and has symptoms of skin ulcers and worms, and according to a piece on the New York Times, Kuru is a very rare disease. It is caused by an infectious protein (prion) found in contaminated human brain tissue. Kuru is found among people from New Guinea who practiced a form of cannibalism in which they ate the brains of dead people as part of a funeral ritual. One of the infected men in the German hospital was confirmed to have eaten human flesh, and he eventually died. When the Turkish hospital was asked on the details of the cannibalism case, they refrained from saying anything. Moreover, the Free Syrian Army said they will be doing an investigation on the cannibalism case, and this sparks a hunch as to what their intentions are behind this. Overall, there are 8 to 20 cases of Kuru in Syria; Kuru strictly is caused by cannibalism, and cannibalism was involved from the report on what took place in the German hospital. In past studies, it was established that in the area of Fore in Paupa New Guinea, Kuru was transmitted due to “ritualistic mortuary cannibalism.” It is quite possible that this is what commenced the infection, in that the jihadists began to eat the flesh of their enemies. Cannibalism is not beyond the nature of the Muslim rebels, here is a video of a Syrian jihadist eating a lung: We have written extensively on Islamic cannibalism, which can be found here, here, here, and here.

Muslim Cannibalism: Jewish Soldiers Lynched and Thrown to Blood Thirsty Masses Who Ripped Them Apart and Ate Their Organs
Posted on January 5, 2014 by Pamela Geller In 2000, two IDF reservists were lynched in Ramallah by a mob of Palestinian savages. New info has been revealed: after they were hanged, their bodies were tossed to a pack of bloodthirsty rioters, who proceeded to tear their bodies apart with their bare hands and eat their organs. The Israeli government freed the Muslim terrorist who gleefully waved his bloody hands after the lynching of the two Israeli soldiers. Another release for “peace.” Details of 2000 Ramallah Lynch of IDF Soldiers Revealed Israel News, (hat tip Ty) Transcripts from the interrogations of terrorists who killed Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz released, show utter barbarism. The Yediot Aharonot newspaper revealed Tuesday new details of the brutal murders of reservists Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz (z”l). The soldiers were lynched in Ramallah in October 2000. The soldiers lost their way to their base on October 12, 2000, ending up in the Palestinian Authority (PA) controlled city of Ramallah by mistake. PA police forces took the two into custody. Word reached local PA residents that undercover Israeli agents were being held in the building; some 1000 rioters reportedly gathered outside. The IDF declined to take action to rescue the soldiers; they were eventually stormed by the rioters. One PA terrorist, Aziz Salha, got to the soldiers first, where he brutally murdered them – stabbing, beating, and dismembering them along with other rioters. He famously then stuck his bloodstained hands out of the window of the room where the two were held, eliciting cheers from the crowd. The crowd then dragged the bodies to a central square, beating them further before setting up a victory celebration. PA police forces did not attempt to intervene and in some cases, participated in the barbarism. A few weeks after the murder, the victims families filed a claim valuing 64 million shekels against the PA to the Jerusalem District Court. The victims were represented by attorneys Nitsana Darshan-Leitner and Roy Kochavi. Now, transcripts of the terrorists’ remarks recorded during those proceedings have been released for the first time. Ra’ad A-Sheikh, a Ramallah cop spotted a red Ford Sierra approaching the station. He asked the soldiers what they were doing in the city. “They told me they lost their way and they need to get to Beth-El,” he said. Beth-El is close to Ramallah and is home to several central army bases in control of the Judea and Samaria region. “I led the soldiers into the police station, after the crowds outside the station began pressuring me,” he claimed. The terrorist cop took the soldiers to the second floor of the station. “I took a length of iron pipe – about 25 centimeters or so – and went into the room where there were two reservists.” “I saw the soldier was alive and on his feet. I went over to the Russian soldier, and beat him with the tube I was holding in my hands. I then punched him in the head until the soldier began making gurgling noises.” PA policeman Tariq Tabesh also participated in the murder. “I saw a soldier on the floor, laying facedown, crying and saying things in Hebrew that I couldn’t understand,” he told investigators. “I hit him on the back three times.” Salha told investigators that he entered the fray after seeing a car with an Israeli license plate parked outside the police station. Israeli cars bear yellow license plates; PA cars bear white plates. Salha alleged that the crowd encouraged him to enter the station. “I saw an Israeli soldier laying there, on his stomach,” he stated. “I approached him and I saw a knife in his back right shoulder,” he continued. “I took the knife from the back of the soldier and stabbed him in the back two or three times, and left the knife in his back. Others in the room continued to hit the soldier in the legs.” “After stabbing the soldier, I put my hand over his mouth to strangle him. I saw that my hands were stained with blood and my shirt covered in blood at the bottom, then went to the window and I waved my hands to people in the yard,” he recounted. “Then I returned from the window and saw the other soldier lying on his stomach in one corner of the room.” The trial against the terrorists is apparently still going, enraging the victims’ families after over 13 years of waiting. Michael Nurzhitz, Vadim’s brother, stated to the daily, “If I could sue the legal system [for taking so long], I would.” “As if it’s not enough that the people who did this have not been punished for all that they did.” Aziz Salha was released in 2011, as part of the terrorist exchange orchestrated between Hamas and Israel for Gilad Shalit. Given the large number of people involved in the lynching, several of the participants have never been caught for the murders – or have been tried in court proceedings that have dragged on for equally as long. Attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner decried the length of the proceedings. “The Palestinian Authority has been exploiting its rights to a fair trial in order to conduct long discussions over nothing,” she stated.

Kuru Disease Devoloping In Syria Due To Cannibalism
By Ted on November 6, 2013 in General By Theodore Shoebat Janelle Vaesa, a scientist with a Master of Science degree in Public Health from the University of Louisville, published an article on September of this year, in which she referenced our article on the one Syrian rebel who ate a man’s lung and on the other who barbequed a man’s head, and forewarned that kuru will arise from such cannibalism and violence, writing: If Syrian rebels are reportedly barbequeing their enemies’ heads and eating hearts on video, are they putting themselves in danger?…Kuru, also known as the “laughing disease” can be transmitted from person to person who engage in cannibalism due to prions in the brain. Her warning is coming to fruition. As reported from the Middle East, there are between 8 to 20 cases of kuru in Syria, and this only could have come as a result of cannibalism. We know that kuru is contracted from eating human brains, and a potential puzzle piece to this case is the photo, which we wrote about in the previous article, of a Syrian rebel barbequing a man’s head: How does cannibalism arise from Islam? What needs to be understood is that this violent behavior, while not being taught in the Koran, is innate within heresy. Heresy always leads to paganism. A good example is Mormonism; Mormon theology denies the Trinity, and to many this would seem as a non-issue. But a simple study on Mormon church history shows that as the cult grew, evil and violent ideas developed, such as blood atonement, or the ritual in which a person who has committed what was viewed as an unforgivable sin (such as blaspheming Joseph Smith) had to have his throat cut and his blood drained to obtain redemption. Another good example as to how heresy leads to paganism, is the Eutychian heretical movement of the 5th century. It was founded by one Eutyches, and he believed that Christ did not receive His flesh from the Virgin Mary, he rejected that God could not have a human body from the womb of a woman, but that His flesh was purely of a divine substance and not like our own. (1) We deem this doctrine as anti-trinitarian. Now, most people today would perceive the Eutychians as a harmless group; their doctrines would be seen as a personal preference, and their teachings would be welcomed with the usual cliche of, ‘They believe in Jesus, and that’s all that matters.’ The modern perspective would hold this view, because modern people no longer hold Christianity as the system which dominates their lives, but a mere individual opinion amongst the others. ‘You have your belief, and I have mine,’ and if anyone questioned the Eutychians, they would be berated with the common saying, ‘theology is irrelevant, what matters is good morals.’ Lets see the later result of this heresy. A Eutychian named Timotheus, who had been a presbyter of the church of Alexandria, in his hatred of the orthodox Christians, attacked the bishop Proterius, a major opponent of their heresy, him with a mob. He fled to the holy baptistery, and when the violent multitude found him, Timotheus thrust his sword into Proterius’ bowels. They then hung his body on a chord, and like Muslims, cheered and wildly cried in pride of their murder of Proterius, and after they had dragged the perished bishop through the whole city, they burnt it and then, being most definitely under the control of demonic power, ate his intestines. (2) How does the belief in Christ having no human nature lead them into cannibalism? Satan has no limits, and once one is in his grasp, one will be plunged into the limitless ocean of the diabolical. Islam rejects the crucifixion, and so does it seek to butcher the innocent for its own redemption. Most Muslims are not cannibals, but at the same time, most Muslims do not understand their own theology, and how rooted it is in the lowest depths of hell. I understand that this may be difficult to comprehend, so I would encourage you to read our extensive research on Islam and cannibalism and human sacrifice here and here.
