Lies can kill: Radical Islam and the mythology of Satanic Ritual Abuse

In the past, I have written about domestic (North American) extremist groups exploiting Satanic Ritual Abuse lies & conspiracy fantasies to incite hatred of and violence against innocent persons in our society.

Today, I’m going to expose the reality of international extremist groups including Al Qaeda exploiting the same vile lies. Specifically, the fact that convicted Al Qaeda terrorist operatives have used the Satanic Ritual Abuse related lies – about America and other Western nations supposedly being controlled by satanic pedophile child-killers – to incite hatred and murderous violence.

Radical Islamist preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri and 4 other Al Qaeda terrorist operatives were extradited from the UK to the US on Friday. From CNN coverage:

Radical Islamist Abu Hamza al-Masri Presented in US Court:

“After losing a lengthy legal battle to avoid extradition to the United States, Egyptian-born cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri confronted a host of terror charges Saturday when he was presented before a federal judge in Manhattan”.
“The one-eyed radical preacher faces 11 terrorism-related charges and is one of five men who departed England late Friday, hours after the High Court in London ruled the men could be extradited “immediately.”
“The charges against al-Masri include conspiracy in connection with a 1998 kidnapping of 16 Westerners in Yemen, and conspiring with others to establish an Islamic jihad training camp in rural Oregon in 1999. He could be sentenced to life in prison if convicted”.
“Al-Masri is one of the highest-profile radical Islamic figures in Britain, where he was already sentenced to seven years for inciting racial hatred at his north London mosque and other terrorism-related charges”.

Abu Hamza

In the UK, Abu-Hamza had been convicted of soliciting murder and inciting racial hatred. From Wikipedia:

“On 26 August 2004, Hamza was arrested by British police under section 41 of the Terrorism Act 2000 which covers the instigation of acts of terrorism. He was “de-arrested” on 31 August 2004, but kept in prison whilst a U.S. extradition case was developed and British authorities drew up further criminal charges of their own. Almost two months later, on 19 October 2004, Hamza was charged with 15 offences under the provisions of various British statutes, including encouraging the murder of non-Muslims, and intent to stir up racial hatred.The trial commenced on 5 July 2005, but was adjourned, and not resumed until 9 January 2006. On 7 February 2006, he was found guilty on eleven charges and not guilty on four:
Guilty of six charges of soliciting murder under the Offences against the Person Act 1861; not guilty on three further such charges.
Guilty of three charges related to “using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour with the intention of stirring up racial hatred” under the Public Order Act 1986, not guilty on one further such charge.
In sentencing, Mr Justice Hughes said hamza had “helped to create an atmosphere in which to kill has become regarded by some as not only a legitimate course but a moral and religious duty in pursuit of perceived justice”. Abu Hamza was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment”.

Abu Hamza’s right-hand man, bodyguard and fellow propagandist of hatred & violence was a man named Abu Abdullah, aka Attila Ahmet.
For many years, on a daily basis, Abu Abdullah preached hatred of America and Americans, as well as hatred of all non-muslims everywhere on the planet. Abdullah openly advocated violence and encouraged Muslims in his audience to commit atrocities, calling such acts a “religious duty”. He was convicted on three counts of inciting/soliciting murder.
From The Guardian, UK:

Profiles: Mohammed Hamid and his followers:

“Described as the righthand man of Abu Hamza, the hook-handed, one-eyed cleric who ran the radicalised mosque in Finsbury Park, Ahmet has been denounced as Attila the Scum by tabloid newspapers”
“His hatred of “kuffars” – a derogatory term for non-Muslims – was matched only by his contempt for munafiqs, the Arabic word for hypocrite, which he used to describe any moderate Muslim who did not back his extremist agenda”
“Atilla boasted he would happily go to prison for 50 years if he got the chance to publicise his hate-filled views in the media”.

There are several videos which captured Abu Abdullah inciting hatred and violence in public, but I’m particularly interested in a video by Davebones titled “Preachers of hate”. In the first three minutes of the video, you get to see and hear Abu Abdullah using the Satanic Ritual Abuse related lie about “occult groups” sacrificing little children at Bohemian Grove, to incite hatred and murderous violence amongst his followers:

    this brings to mind an argument i often encounter when debating with somebody who is invested in a belief in the reliability of recovered memories. it often comes after i’ve listed well-known, proven cases of erroneous, impossible, or otherwise disproven narratives that were presented as recovered memory-derived fact. then, suddenly, the accuracy of the memory itself doesn’t matter. whether these delirious tales of satanic ritual abuse that have surfaced during recovered memory therapies are based in reality or not doesn’t matter — according to this line of argument — what matters is the internal conflict it represents, which must be resolved regardless of its historical accuracy.
    in the product review comments of the book The Trauma Myth by Susan Clancy, which degenerated into an argument about recovered memories, a psychotherapist (perhaps mistaking himself for a scientist), “Tom Cloyd” remarked: “the accuracy of memory is not of interest in psychotherapy. Rather it is the current effect of that memory. If the effect is to cause psychological trauma symptoms or dissociative dysfunction, then we have a situation where professional help is justified. It’s that simple.” and: “research has shown that generally memories which are recalled at some later time have at least a core of truth (and often much more). This is true of memories of traumatic abuse – the particular focus of the research I have read. That memory is not perfect doesn’t mean that the essence of the memory is wrong; in fact, it most generally is NOT. THAT is what the research shows.”
    of course, Tom Cloyd fails to give any indication of which “research” he claims to be citing, so i’m not certain if when he simply refers to memories “which are recalled at some time later” if he’s really following the argument of “repression” at all, or if he simply jumped in over his head, but i felt i needed to reply to the infuriatingly ignorant suggestion that the reality of the “memories” was of no matter:
    “How could it not be?” i wrote, “You say that it is ‘the current effect of that memory’ that matters. Well, yes, Tom, clearly that’s the issue, but perhaps it never occurred to you that the ‘current effect’ is entirely dependent on whether or not the “memory” is taken as an accurate representation of history or not. This is so basic that one begins to wonder if [you are hindered by a lack of] even basic intuitive understandings of mental/emotional processes.”
    in his bizarre and equivocating forward to the satanic ritual abuse conspiracy fantasy book 22 faces, dr. colin ross — after meekly appearing to support the idea of the existence of the satanic cult threat — goes on to state: “Therapy is not about memories, but resolving inner conflict; learning to tolerate intolerable feelings; letting go of addictions and self-defeating coping strategies […] Past events are not the main concern.”
    keep in mind, this comes from a man whose testimony in defense of recovered memory accuracy has been used to put individual liberties at risk. the assumption of accuracy of such narrations has — and has had — very real, very damaging, consequences in the real world, and well beyond the private rooms of incompetent psychotherapists and psychiatrists from which they emerged.
    their being use as fuel for the delusions of terrorists believing they fight The Great Satan is just but another clear example.

    It’s a horrifying thing to contemplate, Doug – that there may have been people who blew themselves and others to tiny bits, because they believed they were ‘striking a blow’ against satanic pedophile child-killers that don’t even exist!
