ISIS CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR BELGIAN MACHETE ATTACK

ISIS CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY FOR BELGIAN MACHETE ATTACK


by Richard Ducayne  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  August 9, 2016

CHARLEROI, Belgium (ChurchMilitant.com) – ISIS is claiming responsibility for the machete attack in Belgium Saturday, where two female police officers were seriously injured.

The attack began around 4 p.m., when a man approached a checkpoint in front of the local police headquarters where two officers were posted. The man immediately took out a machete from his sports bag and struck out violently toward the officers’ heads while screaming “Allahu Akbar!” The Islamic terrorist was shot by a third officer on site after he had already attacked the two female police officers. The terrorist later died in the hospital from the gunshot wounds.

The man was identified as a 33-year-old Algerian who had lived in Belgium since 2012. Although he was known by police to have committed criminal offenses, he had never been known to have any terrorist links.

ISIS’ propaganda arm Amaq News Agency has said the attacker was an ISIS “soldier” and that this attack was answering a call to target citizens in retaliation for the U.S.-led coalition fighting against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Recent crimes attributed to the Islamic State in Europe have been piling up in heavily guarded capital cities. This includes the July 14 attack in Nice, France; the July 24 suicide bombing in Ansbach, Germany; and the July 26 murder of French priest Fr. Jacques Hamel.

In recent months, the Islamic State has encouraged sympathizers to carry out lone-wolf attacks against civilians, which authorities have recognized are much harder to prevent.

Ever since the Paris attacks, Belgium has put hundreds of soldiers on the streets of Brussels, as they are still concerned the European Union could be threatened. But Belgian prime minister Charles Michel has said the government is taking measures to defend the country from further assaults.

“We know that … from the moment some particular measures are taken in a certain place, that can create a temptation to carry out some actions in other places,” he said. “We take that into account … as much as we can.”

TALIBAN BOMBS HOSPITAL; KILLS 70, INJURES 120

by Richard Ducayne  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  August 9, 2016

The Islamic terrorist group was targeting a group of lawyers

QUETTA, Pakistan (ChurchMilitant.com) – Monday night the Taliban bombed a hospital located in the southwestern Pakistani city of Quetta, killing at least 70 people and injuring about 120. Most of the casualties were lawyers.

The suicide bomber detonated the bomb shortly after a prominent lawyer in the area was shot dead that day. His body was brought to the hospital where fellow lawyers came to grieve.

Whether the two events were connected remains unclear, although a local Taliban group has claimed responsibility for the attack in an email.

The Taliban group’s spokesman, Jamaatul Ahrar, said it first assassinated the president of Balochistan Bar Association, Bilal Kasi, and then proceeded to carry out the suicide bombing on those mourning his death at the hospital his body was sent to. The leader told NBC News, “We proudly claim responsibility for the killing of lawyers’ leader Bilal Kasi and then suicide attack on lawyers gathered to protest his killing. We will release video of these incidents and our attacks will continue in Pakistan.”

The official spokesman for the government of Baluchistan, Anwar Kakar, spoke on the bombing. “This doesn’t look like the action of insurgent separatists, rather religious extremists. Their only cause is to create fear. Not fear of God. Just fear of living.”

As Islamic terrorists continue to shock people all over the world with extreme acts of brutality, Church leaders are speaking out. Archbishop Gyula Marfi of Veszprem, Hungary spoke openly Wednesday against Europe’s open-border policies, while also stating that Catholicism and Islam are incompatible.

I have never dishonored the Muslims but their morals are completely different from ours. What for us is a sin, for them is a virtue. What we consider a minor fault, for them is a mortal sin, For example, for them to deceive a kafir (infidel) is a particularly good action. We have to consider this, without judging. Nobody wants to harm them, nor do I hate them. I love and respect them. I pray for them every day.

Also in late July, Cdl. Raymond Burke said in an interview that Islam wants to “govern the world” and that faithful Catholics “have reason to be afraid.”

“I think the appropriate response is to be firm about the Christian origin of our own nation, and certainly in Europe, and the Christian foundations of the government, and to fortify those” he remarked. “We have to say no, our country is not free to become a Muslim state.”

From Darkness to Light
As a Muslim imam, Mario Joseph was well-versed in the Koran and in the teachings of the Islamic religion. In fact, it was precisely the Koran that brought him to an encounter with Jesus Christ and with the truth of the Catholic faith. But his conversion did not come without difficulties; as a consequence, he has undergone grave persecution. How has he attained his intense love toward the Church, the Cross and Heaven? He himself tells us in this week’s impacting episode of Changing Tracks.
