Al-Aqsa demanded that all other collaborators surrender so that they could kill them too.

- March 2, 2002: A suicide bombing by a Muslim who associated with Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades occurred in the ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighborhood of Bet Yisra'el, close to the U.S. Consulate in East Jerusalem. This good Muslim killed 11 people and injured more than 50 additional Jews. The world would be a better place if there were no Islam.
- March 2, 2002: Shots were fired by Palestinian Muslims into the Israeli community of Bet Hagay in the Hebron Hills. In response, Kakh activists threw stones at Palestinian cars in Jerusalem's Shmu'el Hanavi neighborhood, damaging one of the cars. It was too little, too late.

Neil Roberts, 32, of Woodland, California, was aboard another MH-47 Chinook which was attempting to land on Takur Ghar Mountain when his helicopter was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, causing Roberts to fall from the aircraft's ramp. He survived the fall and engaged Muslim militants for 30 minutes with his M-249 light machine gun before running out of ammunition and being killed at pointblank range. It is hard for me to fathom how we could have allowed this to happen. Rescuing fallen comrades is the one thing America does best, even to the point of being suicidal.
Adding to the sadness of this affair is the fact that the weapons being deployed against the Americans were American.

The name of the group means "Organization to Save the Revolutionary Movement in Manipur." Since its foundation the group has mounted numerous attacks against people and institutions it deems immoral.

- March 12, 2002: In a move that cannot be justified rationally or morally, the United Nations squandered what little credibility it had when it voted to reward the world's most ruthless terrorists with a state carved out of the tiny sliver of land called Israel.
Muslim Arabs surrounding Israel have plenty of land, over 500 times more of it than do the Jews. But the reason the "Palestinians" don't settle there is two fold. First, no one wants them, especially not the Jordanians, Syrians, or Egyptians. And second, all Muslim states want the Palestinians to be a cancer inside Israel. They want them to terrorize Jews. It is what their religion demands.

Security Council members passed Resolution 1402 calling upon Israel to withdraw from all Palestinian cities while in the same breath expressing "grave concern over the practice of Palestinian suicide bombings against Israelis." And why do the brain surgeons at the U.N. suppose the IDF was in the Palestinian cities? Why would anyone want to patrol these festering swamps of death unless it was to thwart their ability to kill?
- March 29, 2002: Two Jews were murdered and 28 more Israelis had their bodies mutilated when a female Fatah suicide bomber blew herself up in a Jerusalem supermarket.

- April 7, 2002: In Kashmir Muslim militants trained by al-Qaeda in Afghanistan shot and killed seven people and injured another three Hindus in the Udhampur village. It was a joint operation of Jaish-e-Muhammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Jaish-e-Muhammad is sponsored by the government of Pakistan to terrorize Kashmir. They were established in 2000 by a former General Secretary of the Harkat-ul-Ansar and the Maulana Masood Azhar to take advantage of the ISI supported Taliban/al-Qaeda terrorist training facilities in Afghanistan. The Army of Muhammad is a salafi fundamentalist Islamic organization, second in popularity to their sister group, Hezb-ul-Mujahideen - the militant arm of Kashmir's largest political party - the Jamaat-i-Islami.
Pakistan is Ground Zero for terrorist clubs. As the present-day home of al-Qaeda and the Taliban, the Islamic government sponsors more terrorist attacks than any nation on earth - more than Saudi Arabia and Iran combined. Every time you see terrorism occurring in Afghanistan, Kashmir, and India, you can be almost certain Pakistan's ISI is behind it.
The Army of Muhammad's roots go back a decade or so. While a member of Harakat-ul-Ansar, Maulana Masood Azhar was captured during a 1994 raid in Jammu and Kashmir. He was incarcerated for several years, but his release was secured in exchange for 155 hostages on an Indian Airlines plane hijacked in December 1999. During his imprisonment, his bad-boys club had been added to the U.S. list of Terrorist Organizations, leading Masood Azhar to rename his religious gang the Harakat-ul-Mujahideen. But since competitive jihadists took control of his newly-named terrorist organization while he was in prison, when Masood Azhar was freed, he simply formed a new outfit, the Army of Muhammad, and left the HA, now HM, to other brainwashed and bloody morons.
It is troubling to report that Masood Azhar received assistance in setting up the JM from Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence Agency, the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda, and several Sunni clerical organizations based in Pakistan. His new terrorist club was endorsed by the heads of three prominent religious schools: Mufti Nizamuddin Shamzai of the Majlis-e-Tawan-e-Islami, Maulana Mufti Rashid Ahmed of the Dar-ul Ifta-e-wal-Irshad, and Maulana Sher Ali of the Sheikh-ul-Hadith Dar-ul Haqqania. As salafists, they were fundamentalists, and thus the opposite of radicals or insurgents. And as fundamentalist Muslims, the Army of Muhammad also received an endorsement and support from the Pakistani political party known as Jamiat-i Ulema-i Islam.
Soon after his release from jail, Azhar traveled to Afghanistan where he met with other mujahideen like bin Laden. He organized recruitment rallies across Pakistan that called for jihadists to fight in Kashmir now that the Soviets were no longer a foe. Masood Azhar's recruitment rallies were promoted extensively on Pakistan's state-owned television station. But then displaying amazing duplicity, in December 2002, the Army of Muhammad leader was placed under house arrest in Pakistan after the country's dictatorial general, President Pervez Musharraf, banned Jaish-e-Muhammad and froze its assets.
All that served to accomplish was to broaden the Army of Muhammad's mission. Now in addition to overthrowing Indian rule in Kashmir and integrate the province into Pakistan, they want to overthrow the military government in Pakistan and replace it with an Islamic theocracy. They continue to use their offices in Pakistan as jihad schools. Delivering speeches at various cities and towns in Pakistan after his release, Masood Azhar declared that his militants would eliminate Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee, whom he termed "Abu Jahl" in reference to a Meccan mentioned in the Qur'an that Muhammad didn't like.
Jaish-e-Muhammad is funded primarily through Islamic charities. One of its founders, Sheikh Omar Saeed was charged with the beheading of American reporter Daniel Pearl.
- April 7, 2002: In Croatia, a local politician found a bag containing a hand grenade and a threatening note outside his office. While it is not possible to officially designate who is doing what to whom in the Balkan's, Islam is most always on one side or the other of trouble.
