Timbuktu has passed its first night under Sharia

And the slow march of Islam and sharia law across the globe continues year after year. The media and Obama ridiculed Honduras for upholding its constitution, calling it a coup. Yet when real coups occur in Africa and the Middle East – resulting in sharia – there is silence if not outright approval. via AFP: Islamists, Al-Qaeda gain ground in troubled Mali.

As Bamako braced for the bite of diplomatic, economic and financial sanctions, armed Islamists began imposing Sharia law in towns where they had taken control alongside Al-Qaeda fighters.

The Islamists had been fighting with the Tuareg, despite having different objectives, but on Monday they chased their erstwhile allies out of the fabled city Timbuktu, flanked by the notorious Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) leader, Mokhtar Belmokhtar.

“Timbuktu has passed its first night under Sharia, everything is calm in town,” civil servant Saliou Thiam told AFP by telephone from the ancient trading city from where Islam was once spread through Africa.

City residents reported women were being ordered to wear veils and stop wearing trousers.

The fighting in northern Mali began in mid-January by the Azawad National Liberation Movement (MNLA), which wants independence for its homeland in the northern triangle of the bow-tie shaped nation.

The Islamist Ansar Dine wants to implement Sharia law in the mostly Muslim but secular state.

Asar Dine is under the command of Iyad Ag Ghaly, who played key roles in the two previous Tuareg rebellions in the 1990s and 2007-9. He has since taken up the Islamist cause, distancing himself from Tuareg nationalism and has developed links with AQIM.

In Timbuktu on Monday, Ghaly and his fighters “took the city, chased away the people from MNLA who were there, burned the MNLA flag and put their own flag up at the military camp,” said cameraman Moussa Haidara, who filmed the events.

Will Obama enter this fray (with your taxes) or is everything halal now that the implementation of sharia is underway?

    • every single DAMN time there is coup involving ‘islamic Fighters’AL QUAEDA SEEMS TO BE ALONG FOR THE RIDE TO ”HELP OUT THE LOCALS”’….I MUST ASSUME THEY ARE ON THE UNITED STATES PAYROLL.

  1. My heart breaks for the poor people of Africa – as if natural disasters (drought and other consequences of Nature) aren’t enough with which to deal: More and more they now have to capitulate to 7th century barbarism as well! If we don’t counter-attack and go on a world-wide Crusade, I feel that the West is, ultimately, doomed. But will this freedom-snuffing & stifling ROP POS remain unchallenged?

  2. If we don’t wake us this will be our future. They are totally dedicated to this ideal and that is all they dedicate their life too. They are lazer focused.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
