Gaza Strip: Salafist sheikh held by Hamas over alleged IS ties

Hamas forces have in the past cracked down hard on Salafist groups in the coastal enclave

Gaza’s Hamas-run security services have arrested a radical Salafist sheikh, accusing him of membership in ISIS, a security source said Monday.

“Adnan Khader Mayat from the Bureij refugee camp [in central Gaza] was arrested as part of an investigation,” the source told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity and without giving further details.

Sources close to the Salafists said Mayat had been arrested Sunday “by the Hamas government security services who fight mujahedeen who belong to the Salafist movement.”

  • One of Islam’s strangest phenomena is as follows. The mosques become dangerous intellectual cesspools of Islam think. Only the most devout believers work their way into leadership positions. These people are the most likely to believe Islamic calls to violence. The inability to rationalize anything about Islam is at its height inside the mosques. There are numerous cases of mullahs being murdered by their own co-religionists for having not been conservative enough.

      This is the factor that makes Islam inherently an unending power struggle. Someone is always ‘more Islamic’…giving them the right and the duty to assassinate the slackers. Eventually, the ‘liberators’ become corrupted by power and money…at that point, another ‘liberator’ appears and the corrupted leaders are sadistically murdered in the name of Islamic righteousness. Allah drinks human blood.

      • You are right. Islam is inherently an unending power struggle. The odd thing here is that power struggle is to the path of greatest social dysfunction.

        He who can claim the purest Islamic interpretation, will find violent followers who help the rush to the bottom.

    The game is called ‘More-Islamic-than-thou’…the losing side gets assassinated. Muslims love this game.
