“Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.” — Ayatollah Khomeini
“ISIS militants wielding AK-47s slaughter 14 Real Madrid fans at supporters meeting in Iraq ‘because they think football is anti-Muslim,’” by Thomas Burrows, Daily Mail, May 13, 2016:
ISIS gunmen shot dead at least 14 Real Madrid fans at a supporters club in Iraq – because they ‘don’t like football’.
Three terrorists stormed the café hosting the meeting around midnight and opened fire at the fans who had gathered to watch old recordings of the Spanish football club.
Armed with AK-47s, they left bodies strewn across floor in the northern Shi’ite Muslim town of Balad.
Gruesome pictures from the scene show the floor covered in broken glass and soaked in blood under posters of Real Madrid players and coach Zinedine Zidane.
President of the Madrid supporters club, Ziad Subhan, said: ‘A group of Islamic terrorists, from ISIS, came into the café, armed with AK-47s, shooting at random at everyone who was inside’.
When asked about the motive for the attack, the president replied: ‘They don’t like football, they think it’s anti-Muslim. They just carry out attacks like this. This is a terrible tragedy’.
Alongside the dead, another 20 people were injured, some of them badly….
