ISIS film a CHILD carrying out a beheading for the first time: 'Cub of the Caliphate' is the first seen executing a prisoner by decapitation as the terror group increasingly use boys to kill

Quote:
Depraved jihadis fighting for the Islamic State have forced a young child to savagely behead a Syrian regime army officer in the first execution of its kind.

The sickening murder is understood to have taken at the Western Hir Palace in the province of Homs after the soldier was captured by jihadis at the nearby Al-Bosayri army checkpoint.

The unnamed officer is believed to have been a regime leader in the ancient city of Palmyra, which ISIS captured in May and have since set about about systematically destroying as they believe the city's several millennia-old buildings and monuments distract from the worship of God.

These are not heretics. They are fundamentalists.

We can say both. The other problem with Muslims is that you can’t make jokes about muslims because they will kill you.

PostPosted: Mon Jul 20, 2015 9:39 pm    Post subject: [RoP] Think americans landed on the Moon first? Think again Reply with quote

Quote:
Ottomans were the first to walk on the surface of the moon, not Neil Armstrong, said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, yesterday, during an iftar (fast-breaking) dinner hosted by the Turkish Green Crescent.

Mr. Erdoğan claimed that Muslim explorers reached the Moon more than 300 years before the beginning of the Appolo program, vowing to build a mosque “in the crater” where they landed.

“It is alleged that the first man to walk on the moon was Neil Armstrong in 1969,” Erdoğan said. “In fact, Muslim space explorers reached our satellite 334 years before that, in 1635. Everyone knows the story of the famous aviator, Lagâri Hasan Çelebi, the “Ottoman Rocket Man”, who made the first successful manned rocket flight in 1633. What you might not know, is that he attempted to reach the moon, two years later, and could very well have succeeded!”

The story of Lagari Hasan Çelebi was purported by a famous 17th century Arab merchant and traveller, Mehmed Zilli, also known as Evliya Çelebi. In his famous travelog, he explains that Lagari Hasan Çelebi launched in a 7-winged rocket using 50 okka (63.5 kg or 140 lbs) of gunpowder. It took off from Sarayburnu, a site below the Topkapı Palace in Istanbul.

President Erdoğan’s surprising claim generated some whispers and laughter from the audience, a reaction that clearly angered the Turkish politician. He slammed the skeptics for mocking his claims, adding that he would soon have the proofs to back his claims.

“Why do you not believe it? Because you’ve never believed that a Muslim can do such a thing, just like you’ve never believed that our ancestors could manage to launch ships in the Golden Horn after transporting them across land,” Erdoğan said, referring to Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II’s conquest of Istanbul in 1453. “This claim is not new. A number of academics in Turkey and in the rest of the world have made this claim, and I believe they are right. NASA may have destroyed most of the physical evidence of the Ottoman’s success during the Apollo 11 mission, but we’ll try to find any evidence that might have escaped the cover up.”

Apparently, there is a law in Turkey against "insulting Turkishness". Can you even legally deny this?

I believe it. Erdogan is an nut-case. I have seen him quoted in the past saying that the U.S. never landed on the moon ("Hollywood hoax") and that Muslims were the first to America, because Columbus saw a Mosque when he got there (Columbus referred in his diary to the hut the savages were using for worship as a "Mosque", usage which makes sense for a Portuguese in 1492, at the end of the Reconquista).

Personally, I think Erdogan has a non-negligible probability to be the next Saddam Hussein.

I'm assuming that the multistage rocket approach to getting something into orbit is for show then.

The text does not say that this rocket was the one he reached the moon with. :D
I guess in order to reach the moon you need at least 100 okka of gunpowder.

This must be the reason why European Space exploration is faltering. Not many muslims in its team.

If you were to transfer the European Space Agency to Turkey, right next to Erdogan's palace, you may have some luck.

Aha. Although on first reading it sounds plausible - especially with some of the nutty statements our Islamic friends tend to come out with.
