Robert Fowler's 130 Days in Hell

Al-Qaeda terrorist explained their beliefs and goals to Robert Fowler while they held him captive. What does al-Qaeda want? They want to establish Sharia, to overthrow man-made political systems, to die while fighting for Allah, and to receive their reward in paradise. Notice that these are all things Muhammad taught his followers to do and believe. But all of this has nothing to do with Islam, right?


CNN – “I thought it would end in a tent with a knife, like Daniel Pearl,” Canadian diplomat Robert Fowler tells Christiane Amanpour about his 130 days being held captive by al Qaeda in Mali in 2008.

“Every time I went into a tent, the first thing I did was look on the ground to see if there was plastic,” he recalls. “I figured they wouldn’t want blood all over their rugs in the middle of the desert where there was no water.”

Fowler and another Canadian diplomat were kidnapped when they were in neighboring Niger, where Fowler was a representative of the U.N. Secretary-General. He was on his third trip to the region when he and his group were grabbed by Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and held by thirty of its members—deep in the Sahara Desert in Northern Mali.

For more than twenty years, Mali has been an anomaly – a stable democracy despite a long history of poverty and drought in Western Africa. And then this spring, Mali imploded. A military coup overthrew the elected government, just as rebels took over the northern part of the country.

As Mali sank into chaos, AQIM– the same group that kidnapped Fowler– took control of the northern part of the country and instituted Sharia law.

“They've been fighting for 20 years, under different names,” Fowler says. “They took up the al Qaeda franchise formally in January of 2007. But they've been the Islamic Front [and] the Group Armée Islamique.”

Fowler says the group isn’t actually interested in governing the country. As he puts it, “They want God to govern. They don't think men should govern. And they hate all our favorite terms. They hate democracy. They hate liberty. They hate freedom. They hate human rights. These are all things they believe are the province of God and not of man.”

Fowler says the kidnappers were the most focused group of young men he had ever seen in his life. “There are no women. There's no slinking off for R&R on the weekends. They are totally focused to Jihad; to dying in their cause. They believe that the prophet said that 99 out of 100 shall not pass. But if you die in Jihad, you get a free pass to those rivers of milk and honey. And that's what they want.” (Continue Reading.)

This is politically incorrect, you are just making lies, you are Islamophobes, you are being racist, this is their culture and you must respect it, it has nothing to do with Islam, you are biased, it's because Christians, Jews, Atheists and Polytheists are a pornographied culture, fill of sin, and corrupted and crime, the reason why they are doing all this, if you have never gone to Afghanistan they wouldn't think about killing infidels because it's not related to the Quran.

I think it has been too much Irony for one day.

Sounds like paradise, wait, im not a muslim, it does sound like a living hell.

What can we say other than these people bare the fruits of the unholly Satanic Koran and we as Westerners or Christians and Jews would expect nothing less.

Doesn't it sound like a grand society Osama, a place where you could fit in well and trully a place to call home and excell in practicing your satanic beliefs?

Yep Muhammad never made a invocation to be a martyr and Muslims have never recorded it, nor have they been reciting it for the last 1500 years. Muslim parents never recite this prayer over their children(especially during Ramadan) hoping for the honor of having a child who dies fighting in Jihad ...nope

O Allah, grant me martyrdom in Your path and occur my death in the city of Your Prophet (Sallalahu Alayhi wasallam) . (Bukhari)

And this link is not a discussion by Muslims about praying to be a martyr either.

Think if a movement of young men in the Church could arise that was so focused except on the Gospel?

The devil is very good at getting his way because he is the prince of the world.
Focus is not insight.
And certainly, it is not humility-- the virtue from which all other virtues spring.
Pride and pleasure-- these are all fruit for the slaves of Allah.

ME and borther Samuel was hanging out at Macquarie university today folks. Tend to notice the muslim speaker was all loud but not very logical. pity i didn't get enough time at end to probe at all the holes that are in his argument. was just going to poke at his claim that allah was without flaws. All i get got was it can be only understood in arabic. facepalm
