Isil threatens to destroy Kaaba, says report

Malaysia Insider

A member of the militant group Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has said that they planned to capture Saudi Arabia and destroy the Kaaba in Mecca, according to a report in Turkish media.

The report quoted alleged Isis member Abu Turab Al Mugaddasi who apparently wrote on microblogging site Twitter: "If Allah wills, we will kill those who worship stones in Mecca and destroy the Kaaba. People go to Mecca to touch the stones, not for Allah."

The report said Isil, also known by the acronym Isis, plans to take control of the city of Arar in Saudi Arabia, which is very close to the Iraq border, and begins operations there.

The Huffington Post, however, reported that the Twitter account https://twitter.com/nm8smyh, which sent the original message, had been suspended.

"The authenticity of the account as belonging to an ISIS member has not been verified," it said in a brief note accompanying the report on Isil's alleged plans to destroy the Kaaba.

The Huffington Post said if the statement was indeed from an Isil member, it would be shocking as the group had been attempting to increase recruitment from Muslims worldwide by declaring the restoration of an Islamic Caliphate.

It quoted John L. Esposito, Professor of Religion and International Affairs and of Islamic Studies at Georgetown University, who said: "In terms of legitimacy – unless you're someone who's ready to join a terrorist group at this point, for the vast majority of Muslims there is no legitimacy with this group."

The Huffington Post said the threat to destroy the Kaaba reinforced Esposito's point, particularly as it comes during the holy month of Ramadan.

The terrorists had also threatened to assassinate the Shia leader Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, a report in the Deccan Chronicle said.

“At present, the Shiite religious leader in Iraq is a person named Ali Sistani who is a remnant of Safavid generation. We warn all Shiites that Sistani should leave Iraq, otherwise, we will kill him,” Isil was quoted as saying in a statement yesterday.

One of the security officials in Iraq’s Southern city of Najaf, where Ayatollah Sistani lives, told Adyan news that security measures have intensified outside the Shia leader’s home, and said, “People should be confident that the dirty hands of Wahhabists will never reach our Great religious leader.”

On June 24, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had caused consternation among many Malaysians when he reportedly urged Umno members to emulate the exploits of Isil which he said had defeated an Iraqi force outnumbering it.

“For example, when someone dares to fight to his death, he can even defeat a much bigger team,” he said, singling out the militant group, ISIL.

ISIL, a splinter group of al-Qaeda, has been classified as a terror organisation.

Malaysians are said to be linked to the group. One was believed to have been the suicide bomber who killed 25 Iraqi policemen last month while police here have arrested several local men, believed to be members of the group.

Two days after Najib's statement and following major backlash over his purported support for Isil, Putrajaya issued a statement saying that the prime minister had not indicated any support for the militant group and would not endorse any forms of violence and extremism.

statement from the Prime Minister's Office said Najib's comments, which were made during his speech at Cheras Umno branch anniversary dinner, had been "taken out of all context".

“Isil was mentioned briefly and in passing, but it is important to note that the prime minister in no way indicated any support for Isil," a Putrajaya spokesperson was quoted as saying.

"Any allegation to the contrary is completely false," the statement had said.

The heresy on the street is: ‘I’d love to see the Brazil team lose every game.’
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — When Brazil was awarded the 2014 soccer World Cup, it seemed a no-brainer that it would please the nation known as the most skilled and passionate in the world at “the beautiful game.”
Brazil’s love and mastery of the ball has won a record five World Cups, and it’s often described in religious terms, as “a mecca for football,” or simply the “pais do futebol” — "soccerland."
Past victories have been greeted with

Madness over madness ? The limitations of the French recent law!

When bilateral agreements between France and other countries prevent gay marriage

Published on 18 Oct 2013 | France's constitutional council, the country's highest court, has ruled that mayors cannot refuse to marry same-sex couples because of what their conscience allowed. The case was brought on by a couple who sued their local mayor for refusing to marry them because he didn't believe in gay marriage. Meanwhile, some gay couples are facing a different legal dilemma. Bilateral agreements between France and 11 countries mean that some foreigners fall under the marriage laws of their home countries. Even if they're in a relationship with a French citizen, officials can't marry the couples.
