Bloody Jihad Against Bloggers in Bangladesh
When Muslim Jihadists attacked blogger Pamela Geller’s Garland Texas art exhibit in defense of free speech the American mainstream media, left and right, were quick to condemn her for provoking the attack. Meanwhile, bloggers are actually being killed in Muslim majority countries. Imagine that Ms. Geller’s warnings about Sharia law and Muslim blasphemy laws continue to be mocked by the mainstream media. How long until American bloggers are freely slaughtered in the streets by Muslim “extremists”? Look at what is happening in Bangladesh:
A third brilliant blogger has been hacked to death in Bangladesh since February. On May 9, Ananta Bijoy Das, a banker by profession, and a blogger, was murdered, apparently by Islamist extremists.
Their deaths echoed the murder of Ahmed Rajib Haider on February 15, 2013, and the stabbing in Bangladesh of Asif Mahiuddin in January 2013.
Ansarullah Bangla Team, one of the Islamist groups operating in Bangladesh, claimed all three killings of recent months. The group, also known as Ansar Bangla 8, tweeted within hours of Das’s murder: “Alhamdulillah [Arabic for ‘praise God’], all the brothers of Operation team are safe.” An hour later, the group said that Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) claimed responsibility for killing Das. Detectives suspect that the Ansarullah Bangla team maintains contact with Al-Qaeda.
In an editorial after the latest murder, the Guardian wrote, “Like Raif Badawi, imprisoned and flogged in Saudi Arabia, the brave men who have been murdered are guilty of nothing more than honesty and integrity. Those are virtues that fundamentalists and fanatics cannot stand.”
