Did Radical Islamic Leadership in Boston Influence Marathon Bombers?
What is it going to take to end the dangerous silence?

Reprinted from PeaceandTolerance.org (http://peaceandtolerance.org/).

“This is alarming, but I’d need to see a smoking gun.” That’s what a Boston Rabbi said after we’d spent an hour in his office walking him through mounds of evidence that linked the leaders of the Islamic Society of Boston (ISB) to terrorism and hate speech against Jews and Christians. He wouldn’t speak publicly about the radical leadership of the ISB mosque, he explained, for fear of giving offense, for fear of breaking with a certain understanding about these things, for fear of being labeled a bigot.

For 10 years, this reluctance to speak honestly about the radicalization of the once-moderate Boston Muslim community has epitomized the thinking of many civic leaders in Boston.

We don’t know yet how the two Chechen terrorists became radical Islamists, but their uncle has said they had local “mentors.” The bombs that went off at the Boston Marathon and the subsequent news that the terrorist brothers attended the ISB mosque in Cambridge – which was only blocks from their apartment – should shatter this kind of thinking.

Here is some of what we know, much of which we’ve been telling Boston leaders for the past decade:

Elected officials including Boston Mayor Thomas Menino (forefront) and Gov. Deval Patrick (back row, center), seen here following last week’ Boston Marathon bombings, have been largely silent as radicals took over the once- moderate Boston Muslim community.

The problem is the radicalization of Boston’s historically moderate Muslim community. The ISB mosque is operated by the Muslim American Society (MAS), which has been identified by federal prosecutors as the American front for the Muslim Brotherhood. The ISB was founded by Abdurahman Alamoudi, who is currently serving a 23- year prison sentence for raising funds for al-Qaida. Alamoudi has publicly exclaimed his support for Hamas and Hezbollah.

According to IRS records, one of the ISB’s original trustees was Yusuf Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, who said in a 1995 speech that Islam would “conquer America” and “conquer Europe.” Qaradawi can be seen on YouTube urging Muslims to kill homosexuals and slaughter Jews.

The ISB mosque’s website contained instructions on how to beat one’s wife.

According to FBI surveillance documents, Suhaib Webb, the Imam of the ISB’s Roxbury campus, joined al-Qaida operative Anwar Awlaki (killed by a U.S drone strike in 2011) two days before the Sept. 11 attacks in headlining a fundraiser on behalf of Atlanta Islamic extremist H. Rap Brown, who had just murdered two police officers in Georgia. Brown had converted to Islam and taken the name Jamil al-Amin. That night, Webb and Awlaki raised $100,000 to pay for Brown’s defense. Brown was found guilty of the murders. Awlaki went on to become the leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula and was assassinated by a U.S. drone strike in 2011 in Yemen. It was Awlaki who published al-Qaida’s Inspire magazine, which explained how to make the pressure-cooker bomb used by the Boston Marathon bombers to wreak their murderous mayhem. Awlaki urged American Muslims to attack soft targets and crowded sporting events.

We have obtained a Muslim Brotherhood indoctrination curriculum taught by the MAS and endorsed by Imam Suhaib Webb for indoctrination of Boston’s young Muslims. The curriculum teaches vicious hatred and calls for young Muslims to engage in Jihad against non-Muslims in order to establish a global Islamic state.

Above: President Barack Obama attends the April 18 interfaith service in Boston to remember the three spectators killed and scores wounded in the Boston Marathon bombings.

A Boston Imam who had been scheduled to attend was disinvited by Gov. Deval Patrick. Right: According to the FBI, a local Imam joined al-Qaida operative Anwar Awlaki (pictured) two days before the Sept. 11 attacks in headlining a fundraiser on behalf of Atlanta Islamic extremist H. Rap Brown. We have presented most of our findings to the Anti-Defamation League, New England Region (ADL); to the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Boston (JCRC) and Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) of Boston; to Boston Globe religion writer Lisa Wangsness, as well as that publication’s Spotlight Team; to City Councilor Mike Ross, then President of the council; and to many other religious, political, and civic leaders in Massachusetts. Until last week, all of the facts we garnered did not move those who clung to the belief that any criticism of any Muslim leader here was a sign of bigotry. In response to our concerns, we were publicly attacked as bigots by 70 Rabbis for criticizing one of their colleagues for publicly embracing a leader of the ISB.

For 10 years, Boston’s leaders went along with the politically correct flow. They kept silent as radicals took over the once-moderate Boston Muslim community. They failed to lead and failed to educate the public. They – including Mayor Thomas Menino and Gov. Deval Patrick – embraced the radical leadership of Boston’s Muslim community.

One of the positive results of our efforts: Both the JCRC and CJP broke off their dialogue with the ISB leaders. But they did it silently and never explained their reasons publicly to their constituents. They never educated Boston’s Jews – or anyone else – about the facts they had learned that convinced them that the ISB leaders were not the moderates they had pretended to be.

Now, after the April 15 bombings, there is some hope that just maybe things are starting to change. Webb was originally invited by Gov. Patrick to be part of an interfaith memorial vigil at the Holy Cross Cathedral for the victims of the Boston Marathon attack, at which President Barack Obama spoke. In a last-minute change of plans, the Imam was disinvited. Patrick should be commended.

The status quo must change and Boston’s other leaders must follow the Governor’s lead in disassociating themselves from radical Islamist institutions in the city. Political correctness has guided many of our leaders. If not abandoned, it may well become our own suicide belt.

Aafia Siddiqui: Repaying Opportunity With Terror
The Tsarnaevs followed in the bloody footprints of another privileged jihadist — who attended the same Boston mosque.
by Mark Tapson (http://frontpagemag.com/author/mark-tapson/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/mark-tapson/aafia-siddiqui-repaying-opportunity-with-terror/


One of the more jaw-dropping excuses (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/mark-tapson/excusing-jihad/) that the news media have concocted in defense of the Boston Marathon bombers’ murderous evil is that America herself failed the two immigrant brothers. “Expecting hospitality,” sympathized (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2013/13/130422-boston-marathon-bombings-terrorism-islam-muslims-chechnya-opinion/) an American University professor, “they felt alienated and disillusioned, even with all of the opportunities and privileges available to them as citizens of this country.” This is reminiscent of a parallel tale of opportunities and privileges made available to another jihadist immigrant –Aafia Siddiqui, who attended the same Boston mosque as the Tsarnaev brothers, benefited from the same welcome embrace of our society, and like them, still repaid it by plotting terror.

The Pakistani Siddiqui immigrated to the United States in 1990, graduated from MIT on a full scholarship and obtained a Ph.D. in 2001 from Brandeis. A full scholarship to MIT – quite an opportunity and a privilege. Described by her fellow students as “religious,” she joined the Muslim Students’ Association (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6175), a creation of the subversive Muslim Brotherhood, and solicited money for Brooklyn’s Al Kifah Refugee Center, an early nerve center for al Qaeda (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6211) in America.

When Pakistan asked the U.S. for help in 1995 to combat religious extremism, Siddiqui circulated an email deriding Pakistan for joining “the typical gang of our contemporary Muslim governments,” and closing with a quote from the Quran warning Muslims not to take Jews and Christians as friends. She wrote three guides for teaching Islam, expressing the hope in one that “America becomes a Muslim land.” Meanwhile she took a 12-hour pistol training course.

Immediately prior to the 9/11 attacks, the year she received her Ph.D., she and five cohorts bought $19 million worth of blood diamonds in Liberia to fund al-Qaeda operations. After 9/11, Siddiqui insisted on leaving the U.S. Her husband said she wanted him to move to Afghanistan and work as a medic for the mujahideen.

In May 2002, the FBI questioned Siddiqui and her husband regarding their internet purchase of $10,000 worth of night vision gear, body armor, and military manuals including The Anarchist’s Arsenal, Fugitive, Advanced Fugitive, and How to Make C-4. The husband claimed that these were for use in hunting and camping trips – because who doesn’t fish with C-4? They divorced in 2002, and in 2003 she returned to her native Pakistan and disappeared.

She was soon thereafter fingered as a courier and financier for al Qaeda by no less an authority than its mastermind Khalid Sheikh Muhammad (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=745), whose nephew (also an al Qaeda member) Siddiqui had married in 2003. In 2004, the FBI named her one of its seven Most Wanted Terrorists. She was finally caught in 2008 in Afghanistan.

At the time of her arrest, she was carrying in her purse handwritten notes and a computer drive containing recipes for bombs and weapons of mass destruction, instructions on how to make machines to shoot down U.S. drones, descriptions of New York City landmarks with references to a mass casualty attack, and two pounds of cyanide. While being questioned by U.S. authorities in Afghanistan, she grabbed a rifle and shot at Army personnel while shouting “Allahu Akbar” and yelling that she wanted to kill Americans.

Siddiqui tried to fire her lawyers due to their Jewish background, claimed that her case was orchestrated by unspecified Jews, and demanded that there be no Jews among her jurors. The jury, which was not allowed to hear about the chemical weapons or her al Qaeda involvement, convicted her in early 2010 of two counts of attempted murder, armed assault, using and carrying a firearm, and three counts of assault on U.S. officers and employees. She was sentenced to 86 years in prison. (See her Wikipedia entry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aafia_Siddiqui) for all relevant links to the above summary.)

Aafia Siddiqui was someone who benefited enormously from the opportunities and privileges she received as an American immigrant. Was she “alienated” by them, as the American University professor claims about the Boston bombers? “Disillusioned”? Does that explain her Jew-hatred, her hunger to assist in carrying out terror attacks against Americans?

Instead of blaming America, we should be looking at the hate being spread in mosques like the ones attended by Siddiqui and the Boston bombers. As USA Today reports (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/04/23/boston-mosque-radicals/2101411/), the Islamic Society of Boston mosque in Cambridge and the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, separated by the Charles River, are owned by the same entity, their leadership is intertwined, and they are affiliated with the Muslim American Society (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6263), a Muslim Brotherhood legacy group. The Tsarnaev brothers apparently attended the mosque only rarely, but Siddiqui and the following have been more closely associated with it in the past:


Abdurrahman Alamoudi, who signed the articles of incorporation as the Cambridge mosque’s president, was sentenced to 23 years in prison in 2004 for his role as a facilitator in a Libyan assassination plot against then-crown prince Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.
Tarek Mehanna, who also worshiped at the Cambridge mosque, was sentenced last year to 17 years in prison for conspiring to aid al-Qaeda in a plot to shoot up a Boston mall.
Ahmad Abousamra, the son of a former vice president of the Muslim American Society Boston, was identified by the FBI as Mehanna’s co-conspirator and is wanted on charges of providing support to terrorists and conspiracy to kill Americans in a foreign country.
Yusuf al Qaradawi, the former spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, was listed as a trustee on the Cambridge mosque’s website until 2003.
Yasir Qadhi, who lectured at the Boston mosque in April 2009 and advocated replacing U.S. democracy with Islamic rule, called Christians “filthy” polytheists whose “life and prosperity … holds no value in the state of jihad,” according to a video obtained by Americans for Peace and Tolerance (http://peaceandtolerance.org/), an interfaith group that has investigated the two mosques.
In another video obtained by Americans for Peace and Tolerance, Imam Abdullah Faaruuq, sometimes a spokesman for the Boston mosque, who used Siddiqui’s case to criticize the Patriot Act, said, “After they’re done with [Siddiqui], they are going to come to your door if they feel like it.”
Jamal Badawi, a former trustee of the Islamic Society of Boston Trust, which owns both mosques, was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorism trial.
When politically correct apologists theorize that jihadist immigrants to America feel “alienated and disillusioned, even with all of the opportunities and privileges available to them as citizens of this country,” they are blind to the contradiction inherent in that statement. They refuse to grasp that jihadists are driven by a supremacist ideology to seek our destruction regardless of what we do or don’t do. With one hand those immigrants took advantage of everything our free, open society had to offer, and with the other they waged jihad against us.

How many more innocent Americans will be maimed or die, like eight-year-old Martin Richard waiting excitedly for his dad at the Boston Marathon finish line, because our government refuses to allow that ideology to be named, much less combatted? How many more, because our leftist elites want to absolve terrorists and shift the blame for their atrocities to America herself? How many more, because we will not clamp down on mosques linked to terrorism?

We cannot win a war that we pretend does not exist.

Pro-Hezbollah, Pro-Hamas Stations Broadcasting in America in Possible Violation of the Law

May. 1, 2013
http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/pro-hezbollah-pro-hamas-stations-broadcasting-in-america-in-possible-violation-of-the-law/


As the media focus turns to how Tamerlan and Dzokhar Tsarnaev were radicalized in America, one group says it has identified two stations illegally broadcasting Hezbollah and Hamas television channels in the United States and potentially radicalizing other would-be terrorists within America’s borders.

The Lawfare Project has found that two television stations—NileSat IPTV in New Jersey and ArabTV4ALL in California—are broadcasting transmissions from pro-Hamas (al-Aqsa) and pro-Hezbollah (al-Manar) television stations. According to a memo prepared by the Lawfare Project and shown to the Blaze, both al-Aqsa and al-Manar target children in their broadcasts and encourage them to become suicide bombers.

http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Snapz-Pro-XScreenSnapz2604.png (http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Snapz-Pro-XScreenSnapz2604.png)
Anti-Semitic Children’s Show Character Farfour (AP/Al-Aqsa TV)

Al-Aqsa uses popular cartoon figures to indoctrinate children and incite them toward hatred and violence. In one example, al-Aqsa featured a Bugs Bunny-like character proclaiming that he “will finish off the Jews and eat them.” In another episode of “Pioneers of Tomorrow,” a young Muslim girl and her friend Farfour, an anti-Semitic Mickey Mouse look-alike, take calls from other Muslim children. One caller proclaims that to liberate Jerusalem, “I will shoot . . . We will annihilate the Jews.” In a June 2007 episode, Farfour was “martyred” by Israeli interrogators. Faced with near-universal outcry, including from the Disney Company, the show’s producers killed off Farfour and replaced him with another mascot to tout the virtues of jihad, telling their children viewers that Israel had killed the popular rodent.

In 2010, the French government outlawed al-Aqsa broadcasts “because the channel repeatedly violated European laws by showing programs which incited hatred or violence for reasons of religion or nationality, mostly against Israel and Judaism.”

Pro-Hezbollah al-Manar is also banned in France, as well as Holland, Spain, and Germany. On September 17, 2001, the network became the first media outlet to allege Israeli and Jewish involvement with the 9-11 attacks.

Like al-Aqsa, al-Manar targets children. On a Feb. 16, 2012 al-Manar talk show, Imad, a Palestinian child no more than four years old, is interviewed about the death of his grandfather, Hezbollah mastermind Imad Mughniyeh. Adult interviewers ask the boy, who is dressed in military garb, what he aspires to be when he grows up. The adults answer for him, responding that he will join the “resistance,” like Mughniyeh. After the young Imad repeats that he will join the “resistance,” he is rewarded with Mughniyeh’s gun, with which he is encouraged to play. In a February 3, 2012 interview on al-Manar, a five-year-old Egyptian child named Ashraf describes his love for Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah by imitating the terrorist leader’s speeches and mannerisms, and proclaims “[w]hen I grow up, I want to be like him.”

Al-Manar also provides a free live stream over the Internet, available here. (http://www.almanar.com.lb/manarlive.php) It is unclear whether this live stream programming is the exact same programming as is available via NileSat IPTV and ArabTV4All.

Unlike Al-Jazeera, which produces an English version that is toned down than its Arabic versions, Al-Aqsa TV and Al-Manar TV are not “U.S. channels” but rather are more correctly described as foreign channels that can be subscribed to and viewed in the United States.

According to the Lawfare Project’s memo on the broadcasts, AdvancedTV Network currently supplies over 600 Arabic channels from Nilesat and Arabsat directly via the Internet, and its services are made available through resellers within North America, like NileSat IPTV and ArabTV4All.

“By subscribing to NileSat IPTV, the subscriber receives an IPTV box, which can be hooked up to a television set without a satellite dish anywhere in the United States,” the memo notes. “A customer simply calls NileSat IPTV and orders a box, which is then delivered to his or her house. The channels are then broadcast using this box and an internet connection.”

Brooke Goldstein, director of the Lawfare Project, points out that broadcasting terrorist-inspired hate messages may constitute material assistance to a terrorist organization and be illegal.

“We contacted NileSatIPTV way back and they confirmed they air the Hezbollah and Hamas channels,” explains Goldstein.

“It’s unthinkable, especially in light of the Boston terror attacks, that our government continues to allow Hamas and Hezbollah, two designated foreign terrorist organizations, to openly and illegally broadcast their stations within our borders–[need an unbroken dash]stations aimed at radicalizing and recruiting Muslim youth towards violence, a most egregious form of child abuse,” she says.

David Reaboi, Vice President for the Center for Security Policy, agrees.“While the Obama administration, talking heads in the mainstream media and Islamist pressure groups all assure us we have no problem with domestic so-called ‘radicalization’ in the American Muslim community, it’s clear that this openly jihadist and genocidal programming has some kind of audience in this country,” says Reaboi.

“These cable channels are, unfortunately, serving their audience with what they seem to crave: annihilationist rhetoric and conspiracy theorizing. The major obstacle to peace in the Middle East has always been a Palestinian culture of blood-lust; that it’s being broadcast inside America is frightening—and gives lie to talking points from Islamist pressure groups and their allies. Looking at the audience for these channels, it’s impossible to conclude that we do not have a domestic Islamist radicalization problem.”

Goldstein, a New York-based human rights attorney, says there is no First Amendment protection for these two television programs and points to legal precedent indicating that such broadcasts constitute material support for the terrorist groups.

“The U.S. Supreme Court has been very clear—there is no First Amendment right whatsoever to provide material support to designated terrorist organizations,” she explains. “If this administration is serious about tackling homegrown radicalization, it must at the very least immediately prosecute those who act so brazenly and openly in violation of the law.”

Goldstein says the Lawfare Project has been in contact with New Jersey authorities about criminal enforcement, which have been slow about enforcement.

Goldstein points to the case of Javed Iqbal as a legal precedent. Iqbal was a Pakistani businessman who pleaded guilty to one federal count of providing material support and resources to Hezbollah. Iqbal and his associate had accepted thousands of dollars each month from al-Manar to broadcast the station to their North American customers, and had supplied al-Manar with equipment necessary to produce and promote its broadcasts.

Despite receiving numerous warnings about al-Manar’s relationship to Hezbollah and despite the March 2006 designation of al-Manar as a supporter of terrorism, Iqbal continued to actively market the al-Manar station to his customers in Brooklyn, providing the station as part of an “Arabic package,” which consisted of a variety of benign Middle Eastern channels in addition to al-Manar.

Iqbal was sentenced to 69 months in federal prison.

Neither NileSatIPTV, nor ArabTV4ALL could be reached for comment.

Is Welfare-Funded Jihad Part of Radical Islam’s Playbook? We Examine the Evidence

By Mike Opelka (http://www.theblaze.com/author/mikeopelka/)


http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05/01/is-welfare-funded-jihad-part-of-radical-islams-playbook/


TheBlaze’s Tiffany Gabbay contributed to this report.

In Mid-February, TheBlaze published a story about Anjem Choudary (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/18/prominent-muslim-cleric-collect-govt-welfare-as-a-jihad-seekers-allowance/), a famous British Muslim who preaches that England (and all of the world) should convert to Islam and install Shari’a Law as the law of the land. That story also featured a key bit of advice from the cleric telling Muslims that they should use welfare as a “jihad seeker’s allowance.”

http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Screen-Shot-2013-02-18-at-1.51.03-PM-620x394.png

Published reports say Choudary lives off the generosity of the British people — collecting an estimated $40,000/year — as he openly preaches for the destruction of their system as well as encouraging hatred and violence against Christians and Jews…all in the name of Allah.

After the reports surfaced that the family of the accused Boston Marathon bombing suspects have received upwards of $100,000 in welfare over the past decade, something clicked. Was Anjem Choudary’s statement about welfare being the “jihad seekers allowance” a widely accepted theory among Muslims in America and around the world?

We looked into the controversial cleric’s history and also did some extensive research into the concept of Muslims overwhelming welfare systems in democracies where they would be accepted and allowed to speak freely. It should be no shock to anyone that Mr. Choudary’s plan has been in plain sight for years. In fact, in 2010, he appeared on television and openly talked about his plans. He even addressed the subject of his welfare payments.
“They give us money, but we attack their system. The prophet said: ‘To who does the money belong? The wealth belongs to Allah, Take it, but don’t lie and don’t cheat.’ I don’t lie and I don’t cheat. If I am given wealth, I will take it, it is allowed for me. It is halal for me Islamically.”
http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/free-expression.png

In the video Choudary talks about many things:

The elimination of the British Monarchy.
Turning Buckingham Palace (and all palaces) into houses of prayer.
Killing democracy and replacing it with Shari’a and a caliphate.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ne7z-_RXWeA


In January of this year, regular contributor to TheBlaze TV, Eric Stackelbeck recorded a stunning one-on-one profile with Choudary for CBN. The cleric was quite open about the fact that groups he has helped — ShariaUK, ShariaAmerica, and ShariaBelgium — are all “intellectually and ideologically linked.”

The interview took place in a park in London and when Stakelbeck asked how the people playing in the park would be different under Shari’a, the cleric suggested that attire would be the most obvious, with women and men being required to cover most of their bodies.

http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Screen-Shot-2013-05-01-at-4.15.57-PM1.png
Image: YouTube

At the 18:00 mark of the interview, Stakelbeck asked how soon the cleric could see a Muslim majority happening in England. The response might cause some to be concerned.
“Revolutions happen quickly. I don’t know how fast the Shari’a will come. Perhaps in five years…Demographically speaking, you know, Islam could be the major religion of countries like England, Belgium, France and these other European nations because the rate of people are reverting to Islam, the number of children that we’re having, ya know.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uno1RaPRyQU
When talking about using welfare to fund his push to bring Shari’a Law to the world, Choudary also mentions something called “jizya.” What is jizya? It is defined as a “head or poll tax that early Islamic rulers demanded from non-muslims living in their land. An online definition on Encyclopedia Brittanica says the tax (jizya) was used like protection money in countries where a Muslim majority existed. Non-believers were charged this tax in order to be allowed to practice their non-Muslim religion and that those monies were used to fund the military expenses of Islamic states like the Ottoman Empire.

Is Anjem Choudary’s plan to collect welfare and milk the systems of Western democracies as he spends his days and nights preaching Islam an isolated case? No. It appears that this idea is not new and certainly not restricted to just Choudary.

Could this be a key plank in the plan for a Muslim takeover of the world? Possibly.


Consider these examples of radical Muslims who were taking welfare as they were planning or actually carrying out terror plots.

Zacarias Moussaoui - An al Qaeda operative who was involved in the planning of 9/11. Moussaoui was receiving welfare in London (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/1577487.stm)
Ahmed Ressam – Part of Algeria’s armed Islamic group who was also found guilty of plotting to blow up LAX, the airport in Los Angeles – He was getting welfare (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/trail/inside/cron.html) and continued to receive $500/month even after his arrest for petty theft.
Metin Kaplan - Served four years in prison for murdering a political rival, worth millions, but claimed “social benefits” in Cologne (http://connect.freedomworks.org/node/350764)
Abu Qatada - Qatada was sentenced to life in prison in Jordan for a few offenses — including plotting to kill American tourists. He also taught Moussaqui and was getting welfare checks while living on subsidized housing in London (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1033882/Pictured-Smiling-preacher-hate-Abu-Qatada-enjoying-800-000-home-life-benefits.html). He lost his benefits when they discovered he had a bank account with more than $250,000.

The FBI’s Most Wanted (Islamic) Terrorists List
The indisputable common denominator uniting almost every single mass killer of Americans.

In the wake of the horrific Boston Marathon bombing, media, politicians and left-wing commentators have gone to extraordinary lengths to opine on every possible motive and affiliation of the terrorists responsible — every motive except Jihad. Yet as the FBI’s official “Most Wanted Terrorists (http://m.fbi.gov/#http://www.fbi.gov/wanted/wanted_terrorists/wanted-group-listing)” list glaringly illustrates, there is no mystery behind the agenda of those compelled to commit mass atrocities against American citizens.

Canadian jihadist’s disturbing video shows fanaticism of rebels who may have inspired Boston bomber


http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/05/01/canadian-jihadists-video-may-have-been-inspired-boston-bombings/


For seven minutes, five Dagestan rebels spoke into a video camera about killing infidels and how the “good deeds” they were doing would absolve them of “700 sins” committed during their lifetimes.

Filmed by a Canadian jihadist fighter before he was killed by Russian security forces, the video offers a disturbing glimpse of the fanaticism of the rebels who may have inspired Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Tsarnaev does not appear in the footage, which was obtained by the National Post. But it was recorded and narrated by William Plotnikov, a Canadian whose alleged links to Tsarnaev are now under investigation.

In the video, the rebel fighters repeatedly expressed their desire to kill “kafirs,” or non-believers, and referred to “Putins and Obamas” who “throw their speeches on television, give promises and after is death, so then we will see who is right.

“Victory comes only from Allah.”

Speaking mostly in Russian, the rebels did not disclose their location or the date, except that they were “in the forest” and looking forward to mounting large-scale attacks in the spring.

The video opens with a shot of the black flag adopted by jihadists and then pans to a rebel in camouflage cooking the evening meal. The bunker appeared well-stocked, with food, cooking utensils, bunk beds and weapons.

“What do you do?” Plotnikov asked a rebel sitting on a bed beside his assault rifle.

“Terrorism, to kill non-believers. This is what I do,” he replied. “Allah gave me fuel, a bunker, a lot of brothers. I eat and think a lot. I think how to kill them. I make a plan how to kill more non-believers, when to kill them… Something is coming concrete to you for the sake of Allah.”

The man behind the camera was a former Toronto boxer and Seneca College student who had converted to Islam in 2009 and left Canada in 2010 to join the Dagestan rebels. Alarmed by his plunge into extremism, his father called the Russian interior ministry.

Russian officers located and arrested Plotnikov in Dagestan in early 2011. Under questioning, Plotnikov reportedly named Tsarnaev as one of his online contacts, sparking investigations by both the FBI and Russia’s security service.

In the only extensive interviews he has given, Plotnikov’s father Vitaly told the National Post about a chilling online chat he had with his son after the Russians had released the young Canadian and told him to go home.

At the time of the conversation, Plotnikov was back in Moscow and wanted money. When his father asked when he would be coming home to Toronto, Plotnikov replied: “If it will be Allah’s will, possibly I will come back.”

“I told him, ‘Willy, religion is not a bad thing. It disciplines people and makes them more pure, clean. But fanaticism never was a good feature in any religion.’ And he said, ‘Honestly dad, really your eyes are closed by evil. I take the laws of God but not people.’

“But I understood that he was waiting to be called to the mountains,” the father said inside his condo near Toronto. “At that time he still was in Moscow, and they probably requested him already and he needed money to go there.”

It was the last time they communicated. Plotnikov returned to Dagestan and joined rebels in the mountains near the village of Utamysh. The video he recorded reveals an eerie zeal for the Islamist extremist narrative.

“So this is how we live,” Plotnikov said after turning the camera on himself. “We are not suffering, we are not in need. We need only Allah’s help and he does not leave us, his servants. We have food, we have someone to make that food and there are other brothers who perform their duties and this will be rewarded.

“And therefore non-believers you will never see what you would like to see. We have food. Allah is with us, we have our guardian, Allah, but you do not have one. We will kill you,” he said.

“We are not superheroes, we are also in need of Allah’s help and he is helping us and I am asking Allah that by next spring he gives us an opportunity to kill more non-believers, so the military trucks blow into pieces, fly around like rags. Allah is almighty and he will assist.”

Plotnikov, 23, was killed by Russian security forces near Utamysh on July 14, 2012. Tsarnaev returned to the United States days later. Plotnikov’s father said he doubted his son had ever met or befriended Tsarnaev, who died following a shootout with police near Boston two weeks ago.

Dallas CAIR Director:
“Muslims Are Above the Law of the Land.”

By Daniel Greenfield (http://frontpagemag.com/author/dgreenfield/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/dallas-cair-director-muslims-are-above-the-law-of-the-land/ (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/dallas-cair-director-muslims-are-above-the-law-of-the-land/)


I for one welcome this new CAIR policy of honesty (http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/we-are-above-the-law-of-the-land/) and openness. Any day now, maybe one of their directors will admit what they truly stand for.

A Council on American-Islamic Relations leader told a crowd at a rally for Islam that members of the faith should not be bound by American law.

“If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land,” said Mustafa Carroll, executive director of the Dallas-Fort Worth CAIR branch.

The rally in Austin was part of a nationwide effort to hold “Muslim Capitol Day” events. The event included a speech by a representative of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam, who declared that Texas was an awful place and that Islam was the answer.

“Why did Muhammad say that he would not rest until the Koran was the law of the land?”

“Islam does not have Texas in the current condition, the current socio-political condition that Texas is in. What is this condition that Texas is in? Why is Texas on the brink, when you look at Texas in comparison to 50 states, education, percent of population graduating from high school is 46, high school completion rate is 46, the scholastic assessment rate, the SAT score in Texas is 47, the percentage of population with no health insurance in Texas is first, those without health insurance Texas is first. When you look at the state of a child in Texas, the percentage of uninsured children, Texas is first… etc etc

You shouldn’t be filing legislation against Islam, when you look at Texas, Islam is not the problem. Islam is the solution. Allah Akbar.”

Clearly when we look at the literacy rates and health insurance rates in the Muslim world, we cannot help but see that Islam is the answer. That is assuming the question is how can we make Texas more like Somalia or Egypt.

Herman Mustafa Carroll had defended terrorists, perhaps on the same theory that Muslims are superior to the law of the land.

“I think you can only blame Hamas for so long. It takes two to tango. And I think, you know, that what we’ve heard for a number of years is this terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, terrorist, Hamas, Hamas, Hamas, was not just Hamas.”

“Look at the true cause of the terrorism. It’s not somebody is reading a book, reading a Quran, and then go out and say, ‘Well, the Quran told me to blow this up. I’m gonna blow it up.’ The cause, the root cause of terrorism is oppression. The root cause of terrorism is oppression.”

Oddly quite a few terrorists seem to read that book and blow people up. Others read the book and declare that Muslims are above the law of the land. It sounds as if these two phenomena share a common root cause.

CAIR's March with Terror

By Joe Kaufman (http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/authors.aspx?GUID=92b11893-abc3-4f9a-b4a6-e769035120cf)


http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/3411



FrontPageMagazine.com | Tuesday, April 01, 2008
March of 2008 has been an important month for those concerned about the connections to terrorism of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In this month, CAIR exposed its true self more so than at any time in the past, as it came out publicly in support of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, its two forefathers. In doing as such, the organization has issued a direct challenge to the United States government, which has, within the past year, named CAIR as playing a role in an international terrorist syndicate.

CAIR's March with Palestinian Islamic Jihad
As this author writes, Sami Al-Arian's picture (http://www.americansagainsthate.org/CAIR_Support_Al-Arian.htm) adorns the homepage of CAIR. The graphic is part of an "Action Alert" that CAIR released March 19th, both on its website and via a pay distribution service. It calls on people to write letters of support to Al-Arian, who is currently protesting his situation -- what CAIR calls "alleged unjust treatment by U.S. authorities" -- by way of a hunger strike. CAIR describes Al-Arian's predicament as a "struggle for justice."

Al-Arian's "justice" is not the same as how most Americans would define the term. When Al-Arian came to the United States he did so as a student; when he leaves it, if he ever leaves it, he will do so as a hardened terrorist.

Sami Al-Arian was a co-founder and the North American leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). He played a major role in a number of terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings, against innocent Israelis as well as two American citizens. He even used a children's school (http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=E0943E8E-E655-47F8-8FEE-C7D1F4A71282) that he created, in Tampa, Florida, to help finance the terror group. Today, Al-Arian sits in an American prison, convicted for his participation in PIJ.

On February 28, 2006, Al-Arian pled guilty to one count of the indictment that had been previously issued against him. The charge, as stated in the plea agreement [pdf (http://counterterror.typepad.com/the_counterterrorism_blog/files/alarian_plea_agreement.pdf)], was: "Conspiracy to make or receive contributions of funds, goods or services to or for the benefit of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a Specially Designated Terrorist..."

While Al-Arian was in the United States, he was active in helping to found organizations beyond the fronts he created for PIJ. One of them, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), would later splinter off into CAIR. CAIR eventually repaid Al-Arian by having its Communications Director for its Florida chapter, Ahmed Bedier, act as his spokesman in the media (http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=CB0442A8-2205-4752-B1B8-6A7468939FF5), when Al-Arian was facing criminal charges. And the group has been repaying him, ever since, including sponsoring screenings of a "puff film" about him, titled ‘USA vs Al-Arian.'

Question number one: Since PIJ is found on the U.S. State Department's list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs); since CAIR is overtly supporting and telling others to support one of PIJ's admitted operatives; since CAIR has definitive ties to that operative; and since the PIJ operative in question has had involvement in the murder of Americans abroad, does that not make CAIR guilty of providing aid and comfort to the enemy or worse?

CAIR's March with Hamas
This past year, CAIR was linked to Hamas, during a federal trial which ran from July through October of 2007. Court documents [pdf (http://counterterrorismblog.org/site-resources/images/CAIR%20Minutes.pdf)] from the trial prove that CAIR was created as being part of the Palestine Committee, a group led by then-head of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook, whose mission was to raise money for Hamas from American shores. The trial named leaders of another member organization of the Palestine Committee, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), as defendants.

On March 1, 2008, Americans Against Hate (AAH), a group that this author is Chairman of, sponsored a rally against CAIR's usage (http://www.americansagainsthate.org/press_releases/PR-AAH_Rally_Against_CAIR_2008.php) of a government-owned facility in Broward County, Florida. During the event, a CAIR-Florida representative named Jawhar "Joe" Badran stated his feelings about Hamas.

Into a microphone bearing CAIR's logo and name, whilst standing next to the Executive Director of CAIR-Florida Altaf Ali, caught on camera (http://americansagainsthate.org/press_releases/PR-CAIR_Supports_Hamas.php) for the world to view, Badran declared the following incredible statement, "Hamas is not a terrorist organization." As well, at the rally, he proclaimed, "Hamas is a defender of the Palestinian people. That's what Hamas is." And "Hamas is better than Fatah, because there's no corruption. Hamas takes care of the people."

Less than a week after CAIR's statements about Hamas were uttered, on March 6th, a terrorist attack took place at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva, in Jerusalem, carried out by a resident of the city, Alaa Hisham Abu Dhaim. The attack left eight students dead, each from gunshot wounds. All but one of those murdered were teenagers, including a 16-year-old American citizen named Avraham David Moses.

Following the attack, the military wing of Hamas, Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades, issued a press release (http://americansagainsthate.org/Hamas_Jerusalem_Attack_School.htm) calling the incident a "heroic martyrdom operation" and stating that more attacks like it are to follow. Hamas originally took credit for the attack (which may have been coordinated with one or more terror groups), and a number of arrests regarding it followed, including that of the shooter's father, Maan, a former Hamas member.

Question number two: Since Hamas is found on the U.S. State Department's list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs); since CAIR has been named by the U.S. government as being a part of Hamas; since CAIR has publicly stated its support for Hamas and has claimed that Hamas is not a terrorist organization; and since Hamas was implicated in an attack that extinguished the life of an American boy, only days after CAIR's pro-Hamas statements were voiced; does that not, as well, make CAIR guilty of providing aid and comfort to the enemy or worse?

In answering the two questions, one must take into account the fact that, for 14 years, CAIR has existed as a thorn on American society, continuing even as its officials and affiliated groups either rot in prison or fade into obscurity. However, CAIR's recent and very public support for terrorist groups reveals a certain desperation and defiant challenge to those in our government who are no longer oblivious to the organization's disquieting agenda, and this can only mean that its demise is closer. Perhaps by next March the group with the terror-filled history [I]will finally be history.

Chicago: Judge orders home confinement for Muslim charged with trying to join al-Qaeda

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-teen-charged-with-trying-to-join-alqaida-gets-home-confinement-20130502,0,1490677.story

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/chicago-judge-orders-home-confinement-for-muslim-charged-with-trying-to-join-al-qaeda.html


UPDATE: Release order overruled (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/suburbs/aurora/chi-judge-overrules-release-order-on-terrorism-suspect-20130503,0,4117140.story). Common sense prevails (for now).
------
He also has been linked to a Muslim who tried to set off a bomb in a Chicago bar. But "family members and leaders from Tounisi's religious community" convinced the judge that he didn't need to be in jail; the poor dear would be fine at home. "Teen charged with trying to join al-Qaida gets home confinement," by Annie Sweeney for the Chicago Tribune (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-teen-charged-with-trying-to-join-alqaida-gets-home-confinement-20130502,0,1490677.story), May 2:
In a highly unusual decision, a federal judge Thursday ordered a terrorism suspect released to home confinement while the Aurora teen awaits trial on charges that he signed up to fight in war-torn Syria for a terror group with ties to al-Qaida.

But the U.S. attorney's office quickly moved to appeal the decision, putting a hold on the release of Abdella Ahmad Tounisi. Another judge will reconsider Tounisi's bail Friday morning.

Federal prosecutors called Tounisi, 18, a flight risk and a danger to the community in asking that he remain in custody on charges that he provided material support to a terrorist organization. Tounisi has been in custody since his arrest April 19 at O'Hare International Airport.

Prosecutors allege that Tounisi posted messages on a phony website set up by the FBI agreeing to travel to Syria to fight with the Al-Nusra Front militant group. According to authorities, Tounisi has links to a second Chicago-area terrorism suspect, Adel Daoud, who was arrested in September after he tried to set off what he thought was a bomb outside a downtown bar. The two were close friends and plotted the bomb attack together, prosecutors allege, but Tounisi backed out when he suspected law enforcement was on to them.

In ordering Tounisi's release, U.S. Magistrate Judge Daniel Martin repeatedly called the decision a "close, close" call but said that pretrial detention is intended to be an "exceptional step." Martin also said he was convinced in part by a courtroom packed with family members and leaders from Tounisi's religious community. The judge also cited Tounisi's lack of criminal background.

Martin's voice shifted to a stern tone as he directly addressed Tounisi, warning him not to break any of the rules he had set for his release. Martin acknowledged the rare opportunity he was giving him, noting the seriousness of the charges and the allegations that Tounisi intended to harm people here and abroad.

"This is no game, Mr. Tounisi," Martin said at one point. "The world is a very volatile place. … Right now you are hanging by a thread in this courtroom."...
No game, indeed, Judge Martin, except the one in which you are so skillfully being played.

Canada: York Regional Police pressured synagogue to cancel Pamela Geller talk, but YRP Muslim chaplain attended conference of Al Qaeda-linked group


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/canada-york-regional-police-pressured-synagogue-to-cancel-pamela-geller-talk-but-yrp-muslim-chaplain.html


Sharia double standard in Canada: speech critical of jihad and Islamic supremacism is forbidden, but Islamic supremacist and jihadist hatemongers are warmly endorsed. Canadian authorities should remove and investigate Insp. Ricky Veerappan (who is himself a Muslim (http://www.ottawacitizen.com/opinion/editorials/Policing+speech/8335026/story.html)) and Imam Abdul Hai Patel immediately.

"York Regional Police Pamela Geller Double Standard: YRP Chaplain Attended Conference Organized By Terrorist Supporting World Muslim League," from Blazing Cat Fur (http://blazingcatfur.blogspot.com/2013/05/york-regional-police-pamela-geller.html), May 6:
The YRP's Ricky Veerappan is on record stating that it is they YRP's duty to represent "community values", translated into real world action that means strong-arming YRP Chaplain Rabbi Kaplan into rescinding his offer to host a talk by Pamela Geller at his synagogue.

Let's see what other "community values" the YRP upholds.

Imam Abdul Hai Patel is a chaplain (http://www.yrp.ca/diversity.aspx) with the York Regional Police. Patel, along with other members of the Canadian Council of Imams attended a conference in 2012 sponsored by the World Muslim League (http://www.canadiancouncilofimams.com/2012/11/council-imams-return-from-hajj/). The World Muslim League as detailed below has a long and sordid association with terrorists. Do note well that the World Muslim League operates WAMY - the World Assembly of Muslim Youth. WAMY was stripped of status as a Canadian charity last year after it was discovered to have funded terrorists:

Canadian jihad terror suspect thought non-Muslims were "out to get us"

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2013/05/03/Canadian-terror-suspect-thought-non-Muslims-out-to-get-us/UPI-78371367609892/

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/canadian-jihad-terror-suspect-thought-non-muslims-were-out-to-get-us.html


In reality, it was he who was out to get us. "Canadian terror suspect thought non-Muslims 'out to get us,'" from UPI (http://www.upi.com/Top_News/World-News/2013/05/03/Canadian-terror-suspect-thought-non-Muslims-out-to-get-us/UPI-78371367609892/), May 3:
TORONTO, May 3 (UPI) -- One of two men charged with plotting a terrorist attack on a Canadian train used to talk about non-Muslims being "out to get us," says an imam who knew him.

The suspect, Raed Jaser, 35, was arrested in Toronto last month and accused of conspiring to kill passengers on a Via Rail train by derailing it between Toronto and New York, CBC News reported Thursday.

Imam Mohamed Ali said he often talked to Jaser after prayers. While he thought Jaser was a "good guy," Jaser seemed convinced non-Muslims "are out to get us so we have to, you know, defend ourselves."

Ali conjectured some of Jaser's anger came from difficulties he had in obtaining Canadian citizenship.

Jaser and his family arrived in Canada 20 years ago carrying French passports and claiming refugee status. A year later, authorities declared their documents fake and ordered them deported.

On appeal, all members of the family were allowed to stay except Jaser, who had been in the interim been convicted of fraud and uttering threats.

His deportation was delayed for 16 years and he was finally granted a pardon. Jaser was granted permanent residency in 2012, even as he was under surveillance in the alleged train plot.

The Muslim Student Association and the Boston Terrorist Connection
The common interest that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and the MSA shared.
by Daniel Greenfield (http://frontpagemag.com/author/dgreenfield/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/the-muslim-student-association-and-the-boston-terrorist-connection/


While the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was still underway, the President of the Muslim Student Association at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth stepped forward to claim that he had tried to get Dzhokhar to join the MSA several times only to be turned down.

“We played soccer together weekly and I knew him fairly well,” he said. “If there’s one thing I can assure you it’s that this kid was NOT a Muslim. He did drugs, he drank alcohol, he didn’t want to help us when we were carrying out humanitarian relief efforts… he knew nothing of Islam.”

And yet, despite Dzhokhar supposedly not being a Muslim, the MSA president kept trying to get him to join. Even though Dzhokhar Tsarnaev described his worldview as Islam and claimed that he was acting to protect Islam, the MSA president could claim with a straight face that he was not a Muslim.

No one had contacted the Dartmouth MSA for comment, yet the MSA rushed out to get in front of the story by making two claims. The first claim was they had casually known Dzhokhar Tsarnaev from soccer games and the second claim was that he was not an MSA member and had nothing to do with the MSA.

By the time the media got around to interviewing the MSA Secretary, it was more of the same story. He had played soccer with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, had tried to get him to join the MSA and didn’t think of him as religious.

The Dartmouth MSA’s comments looked very much like damage control. Soccer was mentioned without context because the (http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/03/media-downplay-tsarnaev-connection-to-muslim-student-group/) soccer games were MSA events (http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/03/media-downplay-tsarnaev-connection-to-muslim-student-group/). Dzhokhar’s participation in them meant that he had participated in MSA activities. The question was whether his MSA participation ended on the soccer field.

The humanitarian relief efforts were the MSA’s aid programs in the Syrian civil war between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Syrian government. As a Muslim Brotherhood front group, the MSA’s officers unsurprisingly stood on the side of the Brotherhood militias.

While supporting one terrorist campaign in Syria, the Dartmouth MSA was fiercely denying any role in another terrorist campaign in Boston.

“I would’ve loved for him to come to the MSA a few times so he can maybe understand his religion better,” Bassel Nasri, the Dartmouth MSA secretary, said on 60 Minutes. “Maybe that would, that would’ve helped in what happened, I would say.”

Considering the MSA’s track record, it would more likely have caused it. Many MSA members have gone on to careers in terrorism. The list of MSA presidents who went on to become Al Qaeda members alone is shocking.

Not only were co-founders of the MSA like Jamal Barzini, Hisham al-Talib and Ahmed Totanji involved in supporting terrorism, but the highest profile American Al Qaeda leader and the godfather of the modern “Lone Wolf” terrorist, Anwar Al-Awlaki, had been an MSA president.

Al-Awlaki wasn’t even the highest ranking Al Qaeda leader to have been an MSA president. That honor went to Wa’el Hamza Julaidan, a co-founder of Al Qaeda and MSA president at the University of Arizona. The highest profile MSA president to have gone down was MSA national President Abdurahman Alamoudi (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=1311), currently serving out a 23-year prison sentence.

Both the national and the local Muslim Students Association groups had long histories of being involved (http://frontpagemag.com/2012/mark-tapson/freedom-center-ads-and-double-standards/) in terrorism, of raising money for terrorists and of promoting terrorism. Nor was the Dartmouth MSA a moderate oasis in a sea of radicalism. Not only were the Dartmouth MSA officers taking sides in the religious war consuming Syria, but Charles C. Johnson found (http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/03/media-downplay-tsarnaev-connection-to-muslim-student-group/2/) that the Dartmouth MSA “routinely advertises speeches and seminars taught by radical imams.”

One of those Imams, Suhaib Webb, was an associate of Anwar Al-Awlaki. Webb is the Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston. The founder of the ISB was the aforementioned Abdurahman Alamoudi (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=1311). One of the ISB trustees was Sheikh Yusuf Al Qaradawi; the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood. Webb is a member of the Muslim American Society, which Alamoudi admitted under oath (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3486/under-oath-alamoudi-ties-mas-to-brotherhood) was a front for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Webb had said that Jihad can be justified if the rights of Muslims are violated. Webb’s website posted a book review (http://ztruth.typepad.com/ztruth/2011/02/suhaib-webb-website-praised-yusef-qaradawi-book-on-jihad-a-masterpiece.html) by Rashid al-Ghannushi of Sheikh Qaradawi’s “Fight of Jihad.”

Sheikh Qaradawi had come out in support of suicide bombings and said, disapprovingly (http://www.investigativeproject.org/profile/167), “It is unfortunate to hear that the grand imam has said it was not permissible to kill civilians in any country or state, even in Israel.”

Qaradawi’s own position (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2315/moderate-qaradawi-defends-hitler-and-nuclear) was that Israel is an invader and aggressor society and accordingly there are no such things as Israeli civilians.

Rashid al-Ghannushi had likewise said, “There are no civilians in Israel. The population- males, females, and children- are the army reserve soldiers, and thus can be killed.” Theologically what applied to Israel, could also easily apply to the United States. Qaradawi had issued his own fatwa declaring, “Those killed fighting the American forces are martyrs… those defending against attempts to control Islamic countries have the intention of jihad.”

The al-Ghannushi review on Webb’s website sneered at Muslims that want “to abolish jihad from the life of the ummah, spreading the spirit of submission and surrender, under the guise of various calls such as tolerance and peace.”

“Al-Qaradawi stresses, alongside classical and contemporary scholars, the consensus that jihad becomes obligatory upon every Muslim if a Muslim land is attacked, or Muslims suffer fitna (are prevented from freedom of faith).”

In the hospital, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev claimed that he was defending Islam from attack. Where could he have gotten that idea?

If we are to believe Muslim Brotherhood front groups like the MSA and MAS, then Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was “radicalized” by watching YouTube videos. But it is far more likely that he was indoctrinated with a Jihadist mission closer to home.

The MSA’s track record in turning out terrorist is indisputable. As are its links to Imams and Sheiks who preach Jihad. Maybe Dzhokhar Tsarnaev never did more than take part in MSA soccer games alongside MSA officers and did not absorb any of their views. Perhaps he never attended an MSA-sponsored lecture by an Imam or Sheik who discussed the finer points of which infidels you can kill. But considering the MSA’s murderous track record, it is far more likely that he did.

The Dartmouth MSA was eager to associate with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev when he was only a terrorist in training, but is now just as eager to write him off as a soccer buddy. But Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and the MSA shared more than an interest in soccer. They also shared an interest in Jihad.

IAP provided the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) with employees, funding, operational expertise, and ideological guidance.



" ... probable cause exists that Abu Marzook knew of Hamas's plan to carry out violent, murderous attacks, that he selected the leadership and supplied the money to enable the attacks to take place, and that such attacks were, therefore, a foreseeable consequence of the conspiracy."

http://www.anti-cair-net.org/cair15.jpg (http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=22144)*CAIR Backs Down From Anti-CAIR (http://www.danielpipes.org/3511/cair-backs-down-from-anti-cair)


In brief, Whitehead won a sweet victory, while CAIR suffered a humiliating defeat ...In anticipation of a court hearing regarding discovery, Rubinstein filed papers in the Virginia Circuit Court in October 2005 and December 2005 alleging extensive links between CAIR’s organizers and control group with Hamas and other foreign and domestic Islamists. Among other things, these papers alleged: CAIR’s lineage goes back to a key Hamas leader (Musa Abu Marzook), and that CAIR has long been connected with, and “exploited” the 9/11 attacks to raise money for the Holy Land Foundation, a Hamas front group. CAIR is heavily supported, financially and otherwise, by suspect Saudi and UAE-based individuals and groups. CAIR states that the U.S. judicial system has been “kidnapped by Israeli interests,”... In March 2006, shortly before a scheduled court hearing to decide on several of Whitehead’s requests (compelling CAIR to disclose its financial data, to answer questions about its relationship with Hamas and other Islamists, and to provide information regarding its leaders’ activities and intentions), the case was settled and then dismissed with prejudice by stipulation (meaning, the plaintiff has agreed to forever drop all of the claims that were in, or could have been in, the complaint) ... According to CAIR’s own analysis of Whitehead’s initial statements, they “impute the commission of a criminal offense” by CAIR, in that these suggest CAIR “actively supports” terrorists, and advocates the “overthrow” of the U.S. Constitution in favor of Islamic law. It bears noting that none of these words were found to be false, they were not retracted, and they remain posted on Anti-CAIR’s website ...





*CAIR Founded By“Islamic Terrorists”? (http://www.danielpipes.org/2811/cair-founded-by-islamic-terrorists)


Why did CAIR drastically reduce its claims versus Whitehead?... CAIR’s filing an amended motion has two apparent implications: that CAIR has tacitly acknowledged the truth of Whitehead’s deleted assertions; and those assertions can now be repeated with legal impunity... CAIR has proven links to… Islamic terrorists. It's easy to understand why CAIR chose to leave this one alone, what with five current or former CAIR affiliates arrested, convicted, or deported on terrorism-related charges...




*Why CAIR Dropped Its Lawsuit Against Anti-CAIR (http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID=D08B8E37-34D9-4134-B2B4-8369090E3265)


Apparently it feared exposure that would reveal its leaders connections to terrorist groups like Hamas... Although CAIR is legal under the constitution, it is important to remember that the Communist party and the neo-Nazi parties in America were legal too...




*CAIR's Defeat A Defeat For Islamism In America (http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=4519)


The Whitehead case has counteracted the tactic of using U.S. courts to stifle free speech by demonstrating that the blowback from a defamation lawsuit – properly defended – is generally far worse than the harm caused by the original statements themselves.

*Senator Barbara Boxer Recalls Award To CAIR "Activist" (http://www.newsweek.com/id/44338)


Boxer’s office confirmed to NEWSWEEK that she has withdrawn a “certificate of accomplishment” to Sacramento activist Basim Elkarra after learning that he serves as an official with the Council on American -Islamic Relations (CAIR). After directing her staff to look into CAIR, Boxer “expressed concern” about some past statements and actions by the group, as well as assertions by some law enforcement officials that it “gives aid to international terrorist groups,” ... Boxer tells NEWSWEEK she never saw the letter to CAIR signed in her name or was even aware of the award to Elkarra before it was sent out. "I feel terrible about this," she says. "We just made a mistake. I was not in the loop. That was an automatic signature [on the letter]." But Boxer stands by her decision to withdraw the award and to distance herself from CAIR, saying she was influenced by previous critical statements about CAIR made by her Democratic colleagues Sens. Richard Durbin of Illinois and Charles Schumer of New York. "To praise an organization because they haven't been indicted is like somebody saying, 'I'm not a crook,'” Boxer says. “I'm going to take a lot of hits for this. But I'm just doing what I think is right." ... CAIR has formally asked for a meeting with Boxer and demanded that she withdraw the action - which one top CAIR official said smacks of “Islamophobia.” ... Boxer was unaware of the certificate to Elkarra that had been given in her name by staff members in her California office and only learned of it “when she came across a story on Horowitz’s blog,” ... After review by her staff, Boxer was particularly concerned by claims that CAIR had refused to condemn Hamas and Hizbullah and recognize those groups as terrorist organizations,” ... [Joe] Kaufman, for his part, couldn’t be more pleased. “We are proud of Sen. Boxer,” he says. “By taking back this award, the senator has shown that she is conscious of the extreme problems that Basim Elkarra and his group, CAIR, pose to the public.” ...

It is for others to decide why CAIR-CAN balked at the prospect of proceeding to trial. It is unknown whether this unease stemmed from concern about the detailed review and disclosures that would derive from such proceedings ... People of good faith must look carefully at the broader implications of all of this. In their Statement of Claim, CAIR-CAN chose to construe my question about its relationship with US CAIR, as implying that: [CAIR-CAN is an Islamist, extremist sympathetic group in Canada supporting terrorism; Sheema Khan is an individual supporting Islamic, extremist causes, including the support of terrorism; CAIR-CAN is a subsidiary of its parent organization, CAIR, which itself is an organization supporting terrorism and run by individuals convicted of terrorist­ related offences. CAIR-CAN and CAIR share a common and inter-related goal of fostering their extremist views, and of supporting terrorism to achieve their objectives; CAIR-CAN and Sheema Khan falsely and fraudulently misrepresent themselves as moderate representatives of Muslim interests; CAIR-CAN and Sheema Khan are frightening moderate Islamists, and are driving young people into extremism] ...

*Government RemindsCourt Of CAIR/MAS Ties To Terrorists (http://www.investigativeproject.org/article/597)


CAIR was listed among "entities who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood's Palestine Committee." Then, when the group petitioned to remove its name from that list, prosecutors said such relief "will not prevent its conspiratorial involvement with HLF, and others affiliated with Hamas, from becoming a matter of public record." Now, in a federal court filing from December, federal prosecutors have described CAIR as "having conspired with other affiliates of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists." The government also stated that "proof that the conspirators used deception to conceal from the American public their connections to terrorists was introduced" in the Dallas Holy Land Foundation trial last year and the Chicago trial of the Hamas men in 2006 ... Federal prosecutors used their response to the brief to remind the court of the both organizations' questionable stand on the issue of terrorism itself ...

*HLF's Financial Support of CAIR Garners New Scrutiny (http://www.investigativeproject.org/article/513)


When it was formed, CAIR was helped out by $5,000 from HLF ... "This is an outright lie," Awad said. "Our organization did not receive any seed money from HLFRD. CAIR raises its own funds and we challenge Mr. Emerson to provide even a shred of evidence to support his ridiculous claim." Emerson did better than that. Through Epstein, he provided the Senate committee with HLF's original seed money to CAIR, drawn on a Saudi Arabian bank account ... Awad's testimony wasn't the first time CAIR denied the HLF support. Earlier in 2003, during a deposition for a civil case, CAIR co-founder and then-chairman Omar Ahmad was asked, "Did they [HLF] give you any money to help start CAIR?" He responded unequivocally, "No." ... Awad then attempted to minimize the significance of the CAIR/HLF money trail: "HLF was not indicted for any criminal activity at the time of its donation in 1994 and its assets were frozen by the Justice Department seven years later in December 2001." He added that HLF's "relatively small donation" came "seven years before any wrongdoing was attributed to Holy Land Foundation." Transcripts from government surveillance tapes make clear, however, that CAIR's founders were fully aware of the support HLF leaders voiced for Hamas well before accepting the money...

*CAIRVs. NYPD (http://www.weeklystandard.com/Content/Public/Articles/000/000/014/968cekhc.asp?pg=1)


Radicalization in the West met with enthusiastic approval from anti-extremist, moderate Muslims, but with predictable condemnation from the "Wahhabi lobby" represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its allies ... The radical Muslim response to the NYPD report predictably employed the pretexts of alleged "profiling" and "inappropriate" criteria. But the report did not embody "profiling;" rather, it was an academic-style work based on open source documents and serious expertise, and utilized a case study approach drawing on terrorism incidents abroad ... But for Islamists in America, charges of "profiling" and "inappropriate" methods are the preferred reply to critical discussion of almost all significant matters.... According to the radicals, they themselves represent the Muslim mainstream, their practices and beliefs are harmless, and any questioning of them amounts to persecution. Unfortunately for the extremists, many Muslims disagree with them, considering them a deviant phenomenon, their habits and views distorted, and their worldwide quest for domination worthy of decided opposition ... Her involvement in CAIR's counter-attack on the NYPD demonstrates otherwise ... Debbie Almontaser appears to be a classic "stealth Islamist," and KGIA looks like just the kind of radicalizing effort it was said to be by its critics ... Shia Muslim community leaders in New York have expressed their opposition to the campaign and their support for the police, and have refused to sign the letter ...

But rather than taking CAIR's boycott lying down, Savage is fighting back, in court. Represented by his lawyer, Daniel A. Horowitz, Savage is suing CAIR primarily for copyright infringement. According to the text of the lawsuit, which is posted at Savage's Web site, CAIR "misappropriated" his work by posting the four-minute segment in question at its Web site and including it in outreach and fundraising efforts. Taking it a step further, the lawsuit accuses CAIR of misrepresenting itself as a "civil rights organization" and of "advocating a specific political agenda that is directly opposed to the existence of a free society." While the copyright infringement charges against CAIR may or may not pan out, the broader implications could end up holding the most weight ...

However, groups such as Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and others have a proven record of senior officials being indicted and either imprisoned or deported from the U.S. Just to name a few: Ghassan Elashi, a founding board member of CAIR, is serving 80 months in prison; Randall "Ismail" Royer, the communications director for CAIR, is serving 20 years in prison; and Bassam Khafagi, the director of CAIR's community relations, has been arrested and deported.

The call included Omar Ahmad (CAIR’s chairman emeritus), who at the time served at President of the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), Shukri Abu Baker, President of the Holy Land Foundation and one of the defendants now on trial, and Abdelhaleem al-Ashqar, the Executive Director of a HAMAS-linked charity known as the Al Aqsa Educational Fund. They discussed inviting people from the “Union,” a code reference to the IAP. They mentioned “Akram,” “Abdul Rahman” and “Nihad.” In 1993, Nihad Awad was the spokesman and public relations director for the IAP. During that same telephone conversation, the men on the telephone call referred to Nihad's work in "media." Shukri Abu Bakr mentioned "a full article in Dallas Morning News...and every few lines: Mr. Nihad said this and that...." The Dallas Morning News did publish an article that day. It ran under the headline "Dallas' Mideast Observers Warn of Conflict Ahead." It extensively quoted "Nihad Awad, spokesman for the Dallas-based Islamic Association of Palestine." ...

Conversions to Islam
At an alarming rate, Westerners strip themselves of their identity and past.
by David Solway (http://frontpagemag.com/author/david-solway/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/david-solway/conversions-to-islam/


An alarming feature of our current sociocultural world is the striking frequency of conversions to Islam across the entire gamut of Western private and public life: prisoners (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/david-solway/conversions-to-islam/prisoners) converting to the religion of peace in record numbers; women (http://standpointmag.co.uk/features-may-10-why-do-western-women-convert-julie-bindel-islam-female-conversion) who crave the emotional comfort and feeling of security that donning the hijab or the niqab purportedly confers; disaffected youth who find purpose and meaning in attending the mosque, often becoming radicalized in the process; African-Americans reacting against Christianity as the white man’s religion and who “associate conversion (http://www.answering-islam.org/ReachOut/emergence.html) to Islam with recovering their ethnic heritage”; political figures who, whether secretly or publicly, swear by the Koran, the most conspicuous recent example being the bizarre spectacle of Arnoud Van Doorn (http://www.carbonated.tv/news/from-an-islamophobe-to-a-muslim-arnoud-van-doorn-ex-leading-member-in-farright-dutch-politician-geert-wilders-party-accepts-islam), one of the Dutch producers of the uncompromising anti-Islam film Fitna and a former leading member of Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party, happily and gratefully (http://www.carbonated.tv/news/from-an-islamophobe-to-a-muslim-arnoud-van-doorn-ex-leading-member-in-farright-dutch-politician-geert-wilders-party-accepts-islam) converting to Islam. Even a Gitmo prison guard (http://www.mediaite.com/online/gitmo-prison-guard-converts-from-atheism-to-islam-after-seeing-detainees-wake-each-day-and-smile/) proved unable to resist the seduction of Islam. To read only a partial list (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_converts_to_Islam) of notable converts to Islam is chastening.

Such conversions reveal a craving for the collectivist embrace of an explanatory and consoling paradigm, and are a symptom of cultural irresponsibility. Some of these, it is true, remain more or less innocuous, but others lead to the espousal of sanctified violence. Michael Ledeen points out in an interesting article (http://pjmedia.com/michaelledeen/2013/05/01/homegrown-terrorist-myth/) debunking the myth of the “homegrown terrorist” that such people, “motivated by strong ideological or religious beliefs,” have come to identify with foreign doctrines and ideologies that are “anything but homegrown.” The indoctrination they undergo may be learned online, though “more often than not takes place at the feet of foreign teachers and trainers.” They are not to be understood as homegrown terrorists since they have “turned to non-American visions and visionaries.” Reiterating his rejection of the “homegrown” label, Ledeen calls them “converts” who “have taken leave of us to join our enemies.” Of course, the terminology we use may also be a question of semantics. Rudi Giuliani (http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Giuliani-US-Grown-Terrorists-Boston/2013/05/05/id/502825?s=al&promo_code=13607-1) has no qualms about using the term “homegrown,” but he means the same thing as Ledeen. He goes wrong, however, in claiming that a significant number of terrorist attacks come from a “distorted Islamic extremist ideology.” Such attacks are enjoined in the Koran and validated in the Hadith and derive not from some rarefied or ultraist version of the faith but from Islam proper. There is nothing “distorted” (to echo Giuliani) or deviant about them.

“Imagine,” writes (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/bosch-fawstin/calling-islam-islam/) former Muslim Bosch Fawstin, “if…we used terms such as ‘Radical Nazism’…and ‘Militant Communism.’ The implication would be that there are good versions of those ideologies, which would then lead some to seek out ‘moderate’ Nazis. Those who use terms other than ‘Islam’ create the impression that it’s some variant of Islam that’s behind the enemy that we’re facing.” He continues by stressing the undeniable fact that Islam “is a political religion; the idea of a separation of Mosque and State is unheard of in the Muslim world. Islam has a doctrine of warfare, Jihad, which is fought in order to establish Islamic (‘Sharia’) Law, which is, by nature, totalitarian. Sharia Law calls for, among other things: the dehumanization of women; the flogging/stoning/killing of adulterers; and the killing of homosexuals, apostates and critics of Islam. All of this is part of [I]orthodox Islam, not some ‘extremist’ form of it.” Many, if not most, converts appear serenely unaware of the central tenets and imperatives of their adopted faith, and never seem to ask themselves the obvious question: was Mohammed, with his program of military conquest and his many sanguinary injunctions, a “moderate Muslim” or an Islamist?

What we are dealing with is a local subset of V.S. Naipaul’s Beyond Belief: Islamic Excursions among the Converted Peoples (http://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Belief-Islamic-Excursions-Converted/dp/0375706488/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1367603669&sr=1-1&keywords=v.s.+naipaul+beyond+belief). Naipaul treats of the tragic effects of Arab imperialistic conquest of four Asian nations, Iran, Malaysia, Pakistan and Indonesia. He writes: “The cruelty of Islamic fundamentalism is that it allows only one people—the Arabs, the original people of the Prophet—a past, and sacred places.” Converted peoples “have to strip themselves of their past…It is the most uncompromising kind of imperialism.” Naipaul’s stories about his travels and the people he met are often heartrending and testify to the confusion and dislocation he sees in their lives and the desertification of mind and spirit that Islam has visited on these countries—the most “retrograde force” in the world, as Winston Churchill described Islam in The River War (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/david-solway/conversions-to-islam/The%20River%20War).

Naipaul is speaking chiefly of massive, forced conversions, but the same is true, mutatis mutandis, of the inroads that the religion of peace has carved into the West where voluntary conversions seem to have attained near-epidemic proportions (http://www.newsnet14.com/?p=78870). Islamic supremacy operates through various complementary means: fear triggered by outright violence and the threat of violence; infiltration of administrations at the municipal, regional and national levels; the suborning of a debauched and obeisant media apparatus; the abject scrivenings of a submissive intellectual class; the pervasive compliance of the entertainment industry; and the corruption of the academy with the willing assistance of university syndics, professors and student unions—a perfect illustration of the Gramscian long march through the institutions. The evidence is pouring in from everywhere, dutifully ignored by those who have a stake in the multicultural fiction. Bruce Bawer, our point man in Norway, has abundantly chronicled (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/bruce-bawer/norwegians-outsiders-in-their-own-country/) the ongoing Islamic conquest of the country that proceeds with the willing complicity of media, academic and political elites. “One way to avoid warfare,” he quips, “is to surrender,” and tells of a representative youngster, a terrified native Norwegian schoolboy menaced by Muslim gangs, who “alone knows five people who have converted.” Multiply by a correlative census coefficient and the picture darkens considerably.

When all these factors are assembled, abetted by the growing phenomenon of conversion, Islam is virtually assured of subverting vast segments of Western social, cultural and political life. Indeed, as if to rub salt into the wound, Islamic speakers are increasingly hosted in our auditoriums, public venues and places of worship while those who oppose the surrender of our rights and liberties to an alien and hostile creed are vigorously repudiated.

To take only the most recent instances of such blatant ignominy, in the immediate wake of the horrific Boston Marathon bombing and the terrorist plot (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/david-solway/conversions-to-islam/terrorist%20plot) to blow up a VIA rail passenger train over Niagara Falls, the anti-semitic director of the Institute of Global Cultural Studies (http://igcs.binghamton.edu/) at SUNY-Binghamton, Ali Mazrui, is to be honored (http://www.campus-watch.org/blog/2013/05/anti-semite-ali-mazrui-honored-by-alwaleed-bin) at Georgetown University, and Leila Shahid, a convicted terrorist, airline hijacker and spokesperson for the Palestinian mafia, has been invited to speak by satellite link at the University of British Columbia. At the same time, Pamela Geller’s speech at a Toronto synagogue has been cancelled (http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/05/free_speech_under_fire_in_canada.html), owing to police pressure (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/david-solway/conversions-to-islam/police%20pressure) and a flexible rabbi who caved before it, determined, no doubt, to retain his police chaplaincy. Geller is thus deprived of the opportunity to tell the truth about sharia, jihad, honor killing, female genital mutilation, blasphemy laws and all the other gifts showered upon us by Islamic advocacy. But Ali Mazrui and Leila Shahid will be offered the occasion and the forum to fire up sympathy for and make a few more enthusiastic converts to the religion of peace.

The longer we insist on ignoring the dromedary in the room, the sooner the acropolis of the West will be invested and despoiled. The drift toward political and cultural capitulation signaled by such callow genuflections as we have noted here is one of the most important issues of our time. The specter of conversion in particular is the sign and stamp of a successful imperial campaign. Once it acquires the force and sweep of a movement, it is too late for a biopsy. The disease has entered its final stages. It is, perhaps, only a matter of one more generation before the curtain comes down—two if we are lucky. To adapt T.S. Eliot’s famous aphorism, this is how a culture dies, not with a bang but a simper.

Canada: Turkish groups celebrate Armenian Genocide

http://www.ayfcanada.org/press-releases/turkish-canadian-groups-celebrate-armenian-genocide/

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/canada-turkish-groups-celebrate-armenian-genocide.html


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdNHw6zRZfw


What illness has overtaken these people?

"Turkish-Canadian Groups Celebrate Armenian Genocide," from the Armenian Youth Federation of Canada (http://www.ayfcanada.org/press-releases/turkish-canadian-groups-celebrate-armenian-genocide/), April 24:
OTTAWA – The annual Armenian Genocide Memorial Day protest in front of the Turkish embassy was met with 50 Turkish-Canadian counter-protesters denying the well-established actuality of the Armenian Genocide. The group quickly turned to singing and jubilant chanting at the face of the Armenians.

Further to this shameful act, the group was clearly attempting to incite a confrontation with their Armenian counterparts to undermine the annual gathering. Repeated name calling and general insults towards the Armenians could be heard from across the barrier.The Armenian group chose to ignore this immature and reprehensible behavior and kept their focus on the Turkish embassy demanding an end to the Turkish government’s denial campaign around the world and acknowledge the dark chapter from its past.

The Armenian Genocide is the first modern genocide of the 20th century, during which an estimated 1.5 million Armenians were killed by the Ottoman Empire leadership in an attempt to rid it’s Christian minority. Countless international organizations, scholars (such as the International Association of Genocide Scholars) and 22 countries have formally recognized these massacres during World War One as Genocide. The Canadian parliament passed a motion in 2004 acknowledging the Armenian Genocide and condemned these crimes against humanity.

Police officers present were questioned about the Turkish group’s permit to gather and answered that the Turkish group had applied for a barbeque party permit in the park.

Afterwards, the Turkish group was invited into the Turkish embassy by Ambassador Tuncay Babali. In an attempt to undermine Canada’s domestic policies, the ambassador recently held an interview with the Canadian Press indicating that Turkey will limit economic developments with Canada unless the government reverses its position on the Armenian Genocide.

NC Muslim gets four life terms for jihad plot to behead witnesses whose testimony helped convict him for earlier jihad plot to slaughter U.S. servicemen and their families

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/nc-muslim-gets-four-life-terms-for-jihad-plot-to-behead-witnesses-whose-testimony-helped-convict-him.html


Unrepentant: "The Koran is the truth that invalidates all other religions. If you do not submit, he will severely judge you, and on the day of judgment you will enter hellfire."

"Man sentenced in plot against terror witnesses," by Michael Biesecker for the Associated Press (http://seattletimes.com/html/nationworld/2020959852_apusncterrorarrests.html), May 10:

A North Carolina man was sentenced Friday to four life terms for plotting to behead federal witnesses whose testimony helped convict him for his role in an earlier plot to slaughter U.S. servicemen and their families.
Hysen Sherifi, 29, was one of six Raleigh-area Muslims convicted in 2011 of planning to attack the Marine base in Quantico, Va., and overseas targets.

Shortly after starting his 45-year prison sentence in the terror case, Sherifi approached another inmate to help him hire a hit man to behead government informants and FBI agents. He recruited his younger brother Shkumbin Sherifi, 23, and former special education teacher Nevine Aly Elshiekh, 48, to help pay the hit man and organize the murders.

But the inmate whose help Sherifi sought turned out to be yet another government informant. FBI agents then staged an elaborate sting that involved secretly videotaped meetings with a woman posing as the go-between for a fictional hit man named Treetop and doctored photos that appeared to show the corpse of a beheaded witness in a shallow grave.

Federal prosecutors recommended leniency for the two coconspirators, who pleaded guilty last year and agreed to testify at the elder Sherifi's trial on nine felony counts.

Citing their extensive cooperation, U.S. District Senior Judge Earl Britt sentenced the younger Sherifi to 3 years in prison, while Elshiekh got 3 1/2 years. They had faced as much as 10 years each.

Before Hysen Sherifi was sentenced, he lectured the judge about Islamic teachings.

"The Koran is the truth that invalidates all other religions," said Sherifi, who declined a court-appointed lawyer and represented himself at trial. "If you do not submit, he will severely judge you, and on the day of judgment you will enter hellfire."

"That it?" asked Britt, who has served more than three decades on the federal bench. The judge then tacked the four life sentences onto the end of Sherifi's earlier 45-year prison term, along with another 50 years on top of that.

"There can be no doubt Mr. Sherifi, the defendant in this case, meets the definition of a terrorist," Britt said. "He was the genesis of this conspiracy. He was the mastermind, though I'm hesitant to use that term because it affords him more credit than he is due."...

Report: Traveler From Saudi Arabia Arrested With Pressure Cooker at Detroit Airport

By Billy Hallowell (http://www.theblaze.com/author/billyhallowell/)


http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05/13/report-traveler-from-saudi-arabia-arrested-with-pressure-cooker-at-detroit-airport/


A traveler from Saudian Arabia was reportedly arrested after arriving at Detroit Metropolitan Airport with a pressure cooker. On Saturday, Hussain Al Kwawahir, who flew from Saudi Arabia through Amsterdam, allegedly told authorities that he was in the U.S. to visit his nephew who attends the University of Toledo.

But The Detroit News also claims (http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20130513/METRO01/305130415/1409/metro/Traveler-from-Saudi-Arabia-arrested-Detroit-Metro-pressure-cooker) that he will be arraigned on Monday in federal court for purportedly lying to a Customs and Border Protection Agent about the pressure cooker and for allegedly using an altered passport.

When asked about the passport, which had a missing page, Al Kwawahir apparently told authorities that he did not know how the section was removed. As for the pressure cooker, when he was asked why it was in his baggage, he purportedly said that he brought it for his nephew, as the devices are not available for sale in the United States (however, they are both available and common here).

This image from a Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security joint bulletin issued to law enforcement and obtained by The Associated Press, shows the remains of a black backpack that the FBI says contained one of the bombs that exploded during the Boston Marathon.

Later, though, the Detroit News reports (http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20130513/METRO01/305130415/1409/metro/Traveler-from-Saudi-Arabia-arrested-Detroit-Metro-pressure-cooker) that the suspect claimed his nephew had bought a pressure cooker in America, but that it was cheap or broken. The change to his story was reportedly curious to officials.

Pressure cookers were used in the Boston Marathon bombing last month, which has purportedly led to more caution if and when these devices are observed. This was at least the second alleged issue in the past few days concerning pressure cookers. On Sunday, the Daily Mail reported the following about a separate incident (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2323316/FBI-surrounds-house-Saudi-student-following-sightings-pressure-cooker-pot-cooking-rice.html):
A Saudi student living in Michigan was questioned in his home by FBI agents after neighbours saw him carrying a pressure cooker and called the police.

Talal al Rouki had been cooking a traditional Saudi Arabian rice dish called kabsah and was carrying it to a friend’s house.

According to reports in a Saudi newspaper on Friday, the FBI are increasingly vigilant about ‘pressure cooker’ home-made bombs after the Boston bombers used one to make an explosive.
TheBlaze will provide more details on Al Kwawahir and the allegations against him as they unfold.

Boston bombers’ mosque recommended men beat their wives


http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/12/boston-bombers-mosque-recommended-men-beat-their-wives/


The Islamic Society of Boston, the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokar Tsarnaev, posted an article on its website in September 2004 that advocated for the beating of women as a last resort to force them to behave.

The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based mosque posted an English translation of Saudi cleric Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajid’s 1997 work, “The Muslim Home: 40 Recommendations in Light of the Quran and Sunnah (http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10789577-the-muslim-home),” which the mosque headlined, “40 Recommendations for the Muslim Home.”

“Hinting at punishment is an effective means of discipline, so the reason for hanging up a whip or stick in the house was explained in another report, where the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: ‘Hang up the whip where the members of the household can see it, for this is more effective in disciplining them,’” the article states.

“Seeing the means of punishment hanging up will make those who have bad intentions refrain from indulging in bad behaviour, lest they get a taste of the punishment. It will motivate them to behave themselves and be good mannered,” it says.

“Hitting is not the way to discipline; it is not to be resorted to, except when all other means are exhausted, or when it is needed to force someone to do obligatory acts of obedience, as Allah says (interpretation of the meaning):

‘… As to those women on whose part you fear ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (next), refuse to share their beds, (and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful),’” it goes on.

The author of the work, Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajid, said on religious program (http://www.memritv.org/clip_transcript/en/3687.htm) that “Jewish websites” can justifiably be hacked by Muslims as part of the “war against (Jews).”

“As for hacking and sabotaging Jewish websites – this is a special case that requires a special answer,” he said, according to a transcript posted on the Internet in 2011.

“The people whose property and websites are protected do not include criminal aggressors. These Jews are bombing from land, air, and sea, perpetrating a genocide against our brothers, killing women and children, and destroying homes and mosques with people inside… There is no doubt that they are criminals, corrupters, attackers, and saboteurs. Their websites are targeted in the context of the war against them.”

North Carolina Muslim pleads guilty to buying gun for jihad murder of U.S. soldiers

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/north-carolina-muslim-pleads-guilty-to-buying-gun-for-jihad-murder-of-us-soldiers.html


"The FBI set up a sting where Rios bought what he was told was a stolen handgun and was then immediately placed under arrest." Watch for the claims of "entrapment" from Islamic supremacist groups. He pled guilty? Pah! That won't stop them!

"North Carolina man pleads guilty to buying gun for terrorist jihad," from the Associated Press (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/05/14/north-carolina-man-pleads-guilty-to-buying-gun-for-terrorist-jihad/), May 14:
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – A North Carolina man who the FBI says spoke of killing U.S. Army soldiers as part of a personal jihad has pleaded guilty to possessing a stolen firearm.

Erwin Antonio Rios admitted guilt Tuesday in U.S. District Court as part of a plea agreement with federal prosecutors.

In an affidavit filed with the court, FBI Special Agent Frank Brostrom said the 19-year-old from Fayetteville holds extremist Islamic views and told a government informant he would like to kill Fort Bragg soldiers.

Authorities said Rios also plotted to travel overseas to commit violence and devised a scheme to commit armed robberies to get money to buy weapons. The FBI set up a sting where Rios bought what he was told was a stolen handgun and was then immediately placed under arrest.

Minneapolis: Muslim who recruited jihadists for Somalia gets 20 years of prison dawah

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/minneapolis-muslim-who-recruited-jihadists-for-somalia-gets-20-years-of-prison-dawah.html


The Star Tribune's headline calls him a "Minneapolis man." Is the salient aspect of his identity, and the reason why he is going to prison for jihad activity, really that he is from Minneapolis?

"Minneapolis man gets 12 years for Somali terror case," by Randy Furst for the Star Tribune (http://www.startribune.com/local/207368971.html?page=all&prepage=1&c=y#continue), May 14 (thanks to Block Ness):
One of the “middlemen” who helped send young men from Minneapolis to fight in Somalia was sentenced to 12 years Tuesday by U.S. Chief Judge Michael Davis.

Omer Abdi Mohamed, 28, of Minneapolis, is among nine people being sentenced this week in federal court in Minneapolis for their roles in helping the anti-government group Al-Shabab fight in Somalia’s chaotic civil war.

Mohamed and others met at mosques and restaurants, raising money and arranging travel for recruits to go and fight.

Mohamed cut a deal in July 2011 allowing him to plead guilty to one conspiracy count, which carries a maximum term of 15 years. He was free on bond until October, when Davis ordered him returned to jail after authorities discovered his activities as a “parent liaison” at Essential Learning of Minnesota Institute in Minneapolis, a private nonprofit school that offers after-school programs on the Qur’an.

Earlier in the day, U.S. Chief Judge Michael Davis sentenced Abdifatah Yusuf Isse of Seattle and Salah Osman Ahmed of Brooklyn Park to three years in prison.

At Tuesday’s back-to-back hearings, the prosecution made motions for lighter sentences for Isse and Ahmed because of their willingness to cooperate with the FBI in its investigation. Davis granted their motions before issuing the sentences.
Attorneys for both men said they do not plan to appeal....

BELCHERTOWN (CBS) – Shortly after midnight Tuesday, seven people were caught trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir.

State Police say the five men and two women are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore, and “cited their education and career interests” for being in the area. The men told police they were chemical engineers and recent college graduates.

The Quabbin (http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/central/quabbin.htm), in Belchertown, is one of the country’s largest man-made public water supplies. Boston’s drinking water comes from the Quabbin and the Wachusett Reservoirs.

State Police say there were no warrants or advisories on any of the individuals and “there was no evidence that the seven were committing any crime beyond the trespassing.”

All seven were allowed to leave and will be summonsed to court for trespassing. The FBI is investigating and routine checks of public water supplies have been increased following the incident.

The seven individuals currently live in Amherst, Cambridge, Sunderland, Northampton and New York City. Police have not released their names because a court date has not been set.

Did You Know About the Terrorism Arrest in Idaho This Week?

By Jonathon M. Seidl (http://www.theblaze.com/author/jseidl/)

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05/17/did-you-know-about-the-terrorism-arrest-in-idaho-this-week/

U.S. Attorney David B. Barlow, of Utah, walks off following an interview at his office Thursday, May 16, 2013, in Salt Lake City. U.S. authorities in Idaho said they have arrested Fazliddin Kurbanov, a man from Uzbekistan accused of conspiring with a designated terrorist organization in his home country and helping scheme to use a weapon of mass destruction. Credit: AP

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An Uzbekistan national living in Idaho has been arrested on federal charges that he gave support, cash and other resources to help a recognized terrorist group in his home country plan a terrorist attack.

Fazliddin Kurbanov, 30, is expected to make his first appearance in U.S. District Court Friday morning, one day after federal agents arrested him during a raid of his small Boise apartment.

Kurbanov was arrested after an extensive investigation into his activities in Idaho and Utah late last year and this year. A federal grand jury indictment charges Kurbanov with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization, and one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and possession of an unregistered explosive device.

A separate federal grand jury in Utah also returned an indictment charging Kurbanov with distributing information about explosives, bombs and weapons of mass destruction.

Wendy Olson, the U.S. attorney in Idaho, said Kurbanov is the only person charged, and any potential threat was contained by his arrest.

“He was closely monitored during the course of the investigation,” she said. “The investigation has been underway for some time.”

Olson declined to share any specifics of Kurbanov’s alleged activities, including whether any potential terrorist threat or targets were domestic or abroad.

A statement from the U.S. attorney’s office said Kurbanov is in the United States legally, but Olson declined to give specific details about his immigration status.

It was unclear when he moved to Idaho or the extent of his activities in Utah. An Idaho telephone number registered to Kurbanov has been disconnected.

The Idaho indictment alleges that between August 2012 and May 2013, Kurbanov knowingly conspired with others to provide support and resources, including computer software and money, to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which the U.S. has identified as a terrorist organization. The group’s purpose is to overthrow the government of Uzbekistan, said David B. Barlow, U.S. attorney in Utah.

The alleged co-conspirators were not named.

In count two, the indictment alleges Kurbanov provided material support to terrorists, knowing that the help was to be used in preparation for a plot involving the use of a weapon of mass destruction.

The indictment also alleges that on Nov. 15, 2012, Kurbanov possessed an explosive device, consisting of a series of parts intended to be converted into a bomb. Those parts included a hollow hand grenade, a hobby fuse, aluminum powder, potassium nitrate and sulfur.

Meanwhile, in Utah, federal investigators said that for a 10-day period in January 2013, Kurbanov taught and demonstrated how to make an “explosive, destructive device, and weapon of mass destruction.”

The grand jury alleges that Kurbanov provided written recipes for how to make improvised explosive devices and went on instructional shopping trips in Utah showing what items are necessary to buy to make the devices, Barlow said. Kurbanov also showed Internet videos on the topic, Barlow said.

The prosecutor declined to say whom Kurbanov took on the shopping trips in Utah but said that information will come out as the case moves through the courts.

The indictment from Utah also alleges that Kurbanov intended that the videos, recipes, instructions and shopping trips be used to make an explosive device for the “bombings of a place of public use, public transportation system, and infrastructure facility.”

The arrest, Barlow said, shows that “there is no priority that is more important than the protection of the public and the prevention and disruption of alleged terrorist activities – wherever they might occur.”

Although the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan started in the 1990s with the stated aim of overthrowing the Uzbek regime and establishing an Islamic government, its goals have expanded to creating a broader Central Asian caliphate.

The movement’s fighters have a presence in Afghanistan’s northern provinces and in Pakistan’s Waziristan province. U.S. and Afghan officials say al-Qaeda has been building ties with the IMU.

Last year, an Uzbek named Ulugbek Kodirov was sentenced to a minimum 15 years in prison in Alabama for plotting to shoot President Barack Obama while on the campaign trial. Kodirov pleaded guilty, saying he was acting at the behest of the IMU.

According to Idaho’s court system, Kurbanov has no criminal convictions but was ticketed for speeding violations twice in 2012 – once in October, when he paid a $90 fine, and another instance in May when he paid $85.

Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of American colleges and universities

http://www.barenakedislam.com/2013/05/16/muslim-brotherhood-infiltration-of-american-colleges-and-universities/


http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/images13-150x150.jpg

Check below to see if any colleges you know are in bed with the founders of al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood. Shockingly, they have infiltrated the United States Naval Academy.

Clarion Project (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/mb-front-succeeds-partnering-us-universities/?utm_source=RadicalIslam.org&utm_campaign=bedcb0c1df-issue_915_16_2013&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_01be8b04e3-bedcb0c1df-3181913#fm) In 1988, an FBI informant inside the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network warned that it had a front called the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). The IIIT leadership, the source reported (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/159.pdf), said they were in the first of six phases to “institute the Islamic Revolution in the United States.” Their current objective was to “peacefully get inside the United States government and also American universities.” And they have.

http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/6-e13598740988101.jpg

Arif Alikhan – Assistant Secretary for Policy Development for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Mohammed Elibiary – Homeland Security Adviser.
Rashad Hussain – Special Envoy to the (OIC) Organization of the Islamic Conference.
Salam al-Marayati – Obama Adviser, founder of Muslim Public Affairs Council and its current executive director.
Imam Mohamed Magid – Obama’s Sharia Czar, Islamic Society of North America.
Eboo Patel – Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

The source warned that the Muslim Brotherhood in America has “unlimited funds” and has “set up political action front groups with no traceable ties to the IIIT or its various Muslim groups.” The source’s identification of IIIT as a front is verified in a 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo. (http://www.clarionproject.org/Muslim_Brotherhood_Explanatory_Memorandum) The Brotherhood itself lists IIIT as number 28 of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” working toward the Brotherhood’s self-defined goal, which it says is a “grandjihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”

IIT’s Director of Academic Outreach from 1984 to 1994 (http://www.currenttrends.org/research/detail/the-muslim-brotherhoods-us-network) was Sayyid Syeed, a founder and former secretary-general of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Footage (http://www.granddeception.com/) from 2006 shows him saying, “Our job is to change the Constitution of America” (you can view it in The Grand Deception (http://www.granddeception.com/)).

ISNA is also identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front group in the 1991 memo and was labeled as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity by federal prosecutors. It was also designated an unindicted co-conspirator (http://media.radicalislam.org/misc/pdf/List+of+Unindicted+HLF+Co-conspirators.pdf) in the terrorism-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation. Syeed is now the director of ISNA’s Office for Interfaith and Community Alliances.

In 2002, federal agents raided the Herndon, Virginia offices of IIIT as part of a terrorism-financing investigation. The organization was the top donor to another group run by Sami a-Arian, a Muslim Brotherhood member that was later convicted of being a Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader. In a 1992 letter, Sami al-Arian said (http://www.investigativeproject.org/700/al-arian-indicted-for-contempt) that his organization and IIIT were essentially one.

However, IIIT lives on, with offices and affiliates (http://www.iiit.org/AboutUs/OfficesAffiliates/tabid/68/Default.aspx) in the U.K., Belgium, Egypt, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan, Bosnia, Bangladesh, Morocco, Nigeria, Indonesia, India and Brunei.

http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/muslimbrotherhood-montage-smal.jpg

Its website proudly hosts (http://www.iiit.org/NewsEvents/IIITVisitors/tabid/323/Default.aspx) a picture of two IIIT leaders, Dr. Abubaker Al-Shingieti and Dr. Hisham Altalib, meeting with Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi in New York on September 24, 2012 as part of an “interfaith meeting.” Tellingly, the website says Morsi “welcomed the participation of IIIT in the rerform [sic] of higher education in Egypt.”

The Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt values IIIT—and so do American universities. The FBI source in 1988 warned that IIIT sought to advance the Brotherhood agenda by doing exactly what it is doing now.

IIIT has “agreements” (http://www.iiit.org/AboutUs/Agreements/tabid/108/Default.aspx) with:

United States Naval Academy: Dr. Ermin Sinanovic, Assistant Professor in the Political Science Department, lectured (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/283/Default.aspx) at IIIT headquarters on December 7, 2012. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Watch (http://www.globalmbwatch.com/2013/05/14/naval-academy-instructor-teaching-behalf-muslim-brotherhood/) discovered that he is also teaching for IIIT’s 2013 Summer Students Program.

George Mason University, who signed an agreement at IIIT headquarters on September 18, 2008. The IIIT representative was its Vice President, Jamal Barzinji.

A 1988 FBI file (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/459.pdf) states that Barzinji was “characterized as” a Muslim Brotherhood leader. In 2003, his home was raided because, in the words (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/891.pdf) of U.S. Customs Service Special Agent David Kane, Barzinji “is not only closely associated with PIJ [Palestinian Islamic Jihad] … but also with Hamas.” In 2011, it was reported (http://pjmedia.com/blog/pjm-exclusive-holders-doj-scuttled-more-terror-related-prosecutions/?singlepage=true) that the Justice Department stopped a planned indictment of Barzinji.

On November 5, 2008, George Mason University, a public university just outside Fairfax, Virginia, announced that IIIT had donated $1.5 million to establish an endowed Chair in Islamic Studies at its College of Humanities and Social Sciences. On November 13, the president of the University held a dinner (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/GMUAgreement/tabid/209/Default.aspx) for the IIIT leadership.

Nazareth College: Located in Rochester, NY, Nazareth College’s Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue signed a “Memorandum of Understanding“ (http://iiit.org/AboutUs/Agreements/CISD/tabid/110/Default.aspx) with IIIT in January 2006. On December 7, 2011, IIIT endowed (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/244/IIIT-Chair-Inaugurated-at-Nazareth-College.aspx) an academic Chair in Interfaith Studies and Dialogue.

Huron University College (Canada): In December 2010, the London, Ontario college began a “cooperative venture” (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/ArticleType/ArticleView/ArticleID/202/PageID/192/Default.aspx) with IIIT to add an Islamic Studies program to its college. It states, “IIIT has agreed to match funds raised by the Muslim Association of Canada and the London Muslim Mosque, both based in London, Ontario, Canada.”

Shenandoah University: The Dean of its College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Calvin Allen Jr., signed a “Memorandum of Agreement“ (http://iiit.org/AboutUs/Agreements/Shenandoah/tabid/111/Default.aspx)with IIIT, who was represented by Barzinji. The website states, “IIIT’s instructional division, The Fairfax Institute, will designate an instructor to co-teach with Dr. Allen a course on Islamic civilization.” Dr. Calvin Allen spoke at a IIIT fundraiser (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/228/IIIT-Hosts-Friends-of-IIIT-IftarDinner.aspx) on August 26, 2011. Shenandoah university is located in Winchester, Virginia.

Hartford Seminary: On March 17, 2013, the Connecticut theological college announced (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/300/Default.aspx) that it had received the necessary funding for an endowed chair in Islamic Chaplaincy. The largest donor was IIIT who had given the college $1 million.

Binghamton University: On November 31, 2012, IIIT“partnered“ (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/284/Default.aspx) with the school to host two lectures by Professor Ali Mazrui on “The Study of Islam in African Universities: Is It a Priority?”

In 2002, Mazrui said: (http://www.mpac.org/issues/islamophobia/mpac-exposes-steve-emersons-self-serving-distortions.php#.UPM-iyc8B8E) “There is also suspicion that some members of the Bush administration in collusion with Israel are more than ready to plunge the Middle East into turmoil in the hope that the final outcome would be to the territorial advantage of Israel and the strategic advantage of the United States. All this is part of the emerging external sadism of the United States, a readiness to hurt others abroad.”

Eastern Mennonite University: On April 20, 2012, two of the school’s professors attended (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/253/Panel-on-Jewish-Muslim-Dialogue-at-IIIT.aspx) a seminar on Muslim-Jewish relations at IIIT headquarters. Dr. Ed Martin, director of the university’s Center for Interfaith Engagement, attended a IIIT fundraiser (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/228/IIIT-Hosts-Friends-of-IIIT-IftarDinner.aspx) on August 26, 2011.

University of Delaware: On January 5, 2012, Dr. Muqtedar Khan, Professor of International Relations and Islamic Studies, took part in a panel (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/243/A-New-Era-for-Democracy-in-the-Arab-World.aspx) about Islamist political victories at IIIT headquarters.

American University: On January 5, 2012, Dr. Mohammad Nimer, Professor of International Relations, took part in a panel (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/243/A-New-Era-for-Democracy-in-the-Arab-World.aspx) about Islamist political victories at IIIT headquarters. He suggested that the U.S. engage the Muslim Brotherhood, but criticized their “us vs. them” politics.

University of Maryland: On December 16, 2011, Dr. Ahmad Kazemi Moussavi, Professor of Political Science and International Relations and a former Iranian diplomat, spoke for IIIT (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/243/A-New-Era-for-Democracy-in-the-Arab-World.aspx) about Iran.

Manhattanville College: On June 10, 2011, James Jones, Professor of Religion and African Studies, lectured (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/220/The-Valency-of-Victimhood.aspx) at IIIT about victimhood and U.S. foreign policy.

Georgetown University: On May 27, 2011, IIIT hosted (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/215/Default.aspx) Louay Safi, Common Word Fellow at the Saudi-funded Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University. Safi has strong Muslim Brotherhood ties. (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/07/25/Pentagon-Islamic-Adviser-Reappears-as-Political-Leader-for-Syrian-Muslim-Brotherhood-Dominated-Group) He spoke about Muslim-Christian relations.

University of Virginia: On April 29, 2011, Dr. Abdulaziz Sachedina, Professor of Islamic Studies, spoke at IIIT. (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/210/Default.aspx) He talked about human rights and democratic pluralism in Islam. On October 22, 2010, Adjunct Professor Rachel Mann spoke at IIIT (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/195/Default.aspx) about non-violent activism.

Middle Tennessee State University: On March 18, 2011, Dr. Ron Messier, Professor Emeritus of History, spoke at IIIT (http://iiit.org/NewsEvents/News/tabid/62/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/208/Default.aspx) about Muslim-Christian relations.

"Grand Deception" Documentary by Steven Emerson Racks Up Film Festival Honors

IPT News
May 17, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4021/grand-deception-documentary-by-steven-emerson


http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/806_large.jpg

"Jihad in America: The Grand Deception (http://www.granddeception.com/#sthash.7y3ZcaHk.dpbs)," a new film by Investigative Project on Terrorism Executive Director Steven Emerson, was honored this week as the best documentary (http://www.beverlyhillsfilmfestival.com/news2013b.php) at the 2013 International Beverly Hills Film Festival.

A jury (http://www.beverlyhillsfilmfestival.com/gallery2013_jury.php) of entertainment industry professionals selected the film, which also won best documentary (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=198519726938694&l=3226469bfc) at last month's Myrtle Beach International Film Festival.

The 70-minute film focuses on the Muslim Brotherhood and its penetration in the United States. It features documents and recordings from federal investigations, undercover recordings and interviews with FBI agents, federal prosecutors and Muslim experts on radical Islam.

"I am honored by the recognition the judges in Beverly Hills and Myrtle Beach have given 'The Grand Deception,'" Emerson said. "This shows what happens when people break through the noise which often dominates discussion on this issue, actually watch the film and judge for themselves. The problem of covert Muslim Brotherhood activity in America is a serious one, and my film explores it with original source documents and a list of sources with first-hand experience combating it."

The film also placed third at the Sunset International Film Festival (https://sites.google.com/site/sunsetfilmfestivallosangeles/) in Los Angeles and is an official selection for upcoming festivals in New York and Madrid.

"As much of an honor as it is to be recognized for this work, Grand Deception co-director Rachel Milton told the Beverly Hills gala attendees upon accepting event's crystal plaque, "it is more important that the subject matter of our film be recognized and discussed. And that is the subject of radical Islam, something that touches everyone's life whether they realize it or not."

Audience members from a screening in Myrtle Beach called the film "very powerful" and "a smack in the face." "People really need to see this," said another.

The Grand Deception is a follow-up to Emerson's 1994 documentary "Jihad in America," which won the George Polk Award (http://www.liu.edu/About/News/Polk/Previous#1994) for outstanding documentary and the Investigative Reporters and Editors' Tom Renner Award (http://legacy.ire.org/resourcecenter/contest/past/1994.html) for investigative reporting.

The documentary has impressed other viewers, with Orange County Register editorial writer Rory Cohen calling it (http://www.ocregister.com/opinion/muslim-379455-brotherhood-america.html) a "must see" for showing "how far the Muslim Brotherhood has reached within our own political fabric in less than three decades."

"'The Grand Deception' exposes radical Islamists in their own words," wrote (http://www.theblaze.com/contributions/islamists-media-jihad-the-deadly-embrace/) Muslim physician Qanta Ahmed, calling that something "shattering to any Muslim in America - and is exactly why our communities invite unwanted scrutiny. In their own voices, American Islamists demand violent jihad against the United States."

Producers say they want the film to start a debate about the political application of Islam – or Islamism – as anti-Islamist Muslim activist Zuhdi Jasser explains in this outtake:

Minnesota: Some Muslims outraged over jihad terror sentences, Hamas-linked CAIR planning lawsuit


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/minnesota-some-muslims-outraged-over-jihad-terror-sentences-hamas-linked-cair-planning-lawsuit.html


Not wasting a second to claim victim status. "Somali reaction to al-Shabab sentences mixed," by Amy Forliti for the Associated Press (http://www.startribune.com/local/208054941.html), May 19:
MINNEAPOLIS - Wide-ranging sentences handed down in the yearslong federal investigation into recruiting and financing for the terrorist group al-Shabab have kindled a mix of outrage, confusion and relief among members of Minnesota's large Somali community.

Some say the 10- and 20-year prison sentences for two Minnesota women who sent money to the group were too harsh, especially since two men who traveled to Somalia and joined al-Shabab got three years. The attorney for one man sentenced to 20 years in prison has already filed a notice of appeal; more are expected.

But others say justice has been served, and authorities said the nine penalties doled out last week show that those who support terrorism will be held accountable....

Prosecutors have said the men and women were part of a "deadly pipeline," sending money and men to al-Shabab, which the U.S. government has designated a terrorist organization for its links to al-Qaida and its tactics that include suicide bombings and assassinations. At least 22 men left Minnesota for Somalia since 2007 in what has been called one of the largest efforts to recruit U.S. fighters for a foreign terrorist organization.

Authorities say the conspiracy began in 2007, when small groups of Somali men began holding secret meetings about returning to their homeland to wage jihad against Ethiopians. Ethiopian troops had been brought into Somalia a year earlier by its U.N.-backed government, but many Somalis viewed them as invaders.

That sentiment came up often during the hearings, as Chief U.S. District Judge Michael Davis gave each defendant unlimited time to say whatever he or she wanted. Davis also asked family and community members to speak, and asked defendants about their time in Somalia and refugee camps.

Hassan Mohamud, the imam at a St. Paul mosque, commended Davis for that approach.

But Mohamud was among several people outraged after two women — Amina Farah Ali and Hawo Mohamed Hassan — received sentences of 20 and 10 years. Ali and Hassan had gone door-to-door, saying they were raising money for charity; they were convicted of funneling funds to al-Shabab.

"They didn't go back home. They didn't kill anyone. They just helped with the poor people," said Abdiwali Warsame, a St. Paul Somali who was interviewed outside the courthouse. He called the women's sentences an "injustice."
They were funding jihad terror, but Warsame hopes you forget about that inconvenient fact.
Three men who traveled to Somalia and pleaded guilty to terror-related charges received lower sentences after cooperating with authorities. Two received three-year prison stints; a third who stayed and fought alongside al-Shabab then lied to the FBI got 10 years. One man who admitted helping recruits obtain plane tickets — but was later characterized as a leader in recruitment efforts — received 12 years.

Last week's sentences are in line with other al-Shabab-related cases. In New Jersey, two men arrested while trying to board flights to Somalia for a jihad were sentenced to 22 and 20 years in prison. A southern California woman received eight years for sending money to Minnesota men in Somalia, while a Missouri man received more than 11 years for funding al-Shabab....

Others raised concerns about potential bias after Davis questioned Ali and Hassan about whether they supported suicide bombings and Sharia law, and asked Hassan about her traditional dress. That led some Somalis to say Islam was under attack.

It also prompted the [Hamas-linked] Council on American-Islamic Relations to announce Friday that it will file a complaint against Davis, for allegedly linking mainstream Islamic principles with terrorism. Davis does not speak about court cases. His office referred The Associated Press to the court record....

Infiltration? The Alarming Details Surrounding Alleged Hezbollah Member’s Arrest in Texas

By Jason Howerton (http://www.theblaze.com/author/jason-howerton/)

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05/24/infiltration-alleged-member-of-hezbollah-arrested-in-texas-after-he-tried-to-get-sensitive-defense-dept-position/


http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/HezbollahFlag.jpg (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2011/12/25/guess-which-country-hezbollah-is-blaming-for-the-syrian-suicide-bombings/hezbollahflag-2/)
Hezbollah flag (File)


The FBI recently arrested (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Alleged-member-of-Hezbollah-arrested-here-4547483.php?cmpid=twitter) a San Antonio man on charges that he lied to gain entry into the U.S. and then attempted to obtain a sensitive position at the Department of Defense.

The man, identified as Wissam Allouce, 44, appeared in court for an initial hearing on Friday afternoon, the San Antonio Express-News reports (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Alleged-member-of-Hezbollah-arrested-here-4547483.php?cmpid=twitter). He supposedly shook his head as U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad read the charges against him in a federal indictment. The judge ordered Allouche be held pending a bail hearing and his arraignment, which is scheduled for Tuesday.

FBI special agent Erik Vasys said the man “allegedly tried to cover up his affiliation with Hezbollah.”

“It is believed he was looking to secure a sensitive position with the U.S. government at some point,” he added.

The federal indictment revealed Allouche had married a U.S. citizen and was going through the naturalization process when he was arrested. When asked by officials if he had ever been associated with a terrorist organization, he replied no. That apparently turned out to be a lie.

According to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, he was a militant with the Amal militia in Lebanon in the early to mid-1980s. He was reportedly captured as a Israeli prisoner of war, but was later released to become a commander of the Amal militia.

“News reports at the time said Hezbollah was formed by religious members of the Amal movement,” the Express-News notes (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Alleged-member-of-Hezbollah-arrested-here-4547483.php?cmpid=twitter).

In addition to lying about his terror ties, Allouche is also accused of lying about his relationship with his ex-wife. He falsely claimed on his application forms in 2009 that he and his wife were married and living together for the past three years. In reality, they had no lived together since May 2007 and they filed for divorce in December of 2007.

Last but not least, Allouche is accused of making a false statement on Oct. 14, 2009, on a questionnaire required to obtain security clearance from the Defense Department. The indictment says he allegedly claimed to never have participated in militias for paramilitary groups. However, the document did not say what position he was applying for or why.

Allouche faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

About All Those 'Moderate Muslims'
The relative silence of "moderate Muslims" in the wake of horrific terror attacks tells us a great deal about their religion.
Bill Muehlenberg's commentary on issues of the day

http://www.billmuehlenberg.com/2013/05/27/about-all-those-moderate-muslims/


About All Those “Moderate” Muslims…

Now it is always possible that I may have missed something here, but after a horrendous few weeks of Muslim atrocities and bloodshed, the scorecard still seems to read as follows:

-Still no mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning the Boston bombings.

-Still no mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning the London terror attack.

-Still no mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning the Swedish rioting.

-Still no mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning the Paris knife attack.

Hmmm…. the silence is absolutely deafening. In fact, I am still waiting for the mass demonstrations by Muslim “moderates” condemning 9/11. These public protests seem to be non-existent. And there are plenty of such attacks to protest about. There have in fact been 21,000 Islamic terror attacks since 9/11. Well, OK, 20,946 to be exact.

A very important website monitoring all this offers this incredible statistic – and more. The stats are simply mind-boggling. Consider just the month of April 2013. In that month alone there were 202 such attacks occurring in 25 nations. In those attacks 957 people from 5 religious groups were killed, with 2403 injured. Not bad, considering this is the “religion of peace” we are talking about here.

So there we have 21,000 terror attacks by Islamic jihadists during the past 12 years, and as far as I can tell, we have had few if any mass protests by all these so-called moderate Muslims who are supposed to exist, telling the world they clearly abhor all this violence and do not at all approve of such terror.

So what does all this silence tell us? Well, it could suggest that maybe there are not very many moderate Muslims out there. That is possible, although I suspect that the majority of Muslims certainly do not engage in such bloodthirsty activity, and hopefully deplore it.

What may be more accurate to suggest is that these “moderates” are either unwilling to speak out, or are in fact afraid to do so, knowing that they too will become the victims of Islamic terror for daring to publicly denounce this. But what all this tells us about the religion of Islam is far more important.

If you ask me, ‘Are there moderate Muslims?’ I will answer yes of course there are. But that is not really the proper question to be asking. The real question to raise here is this: ‘Is Islam moderate or peaceful?’ The answer to that question is a resounding no.

This political ideology – for that is what it really is – began with the sword, has been spread by the sword, and stays in power by the sword. Muhammad is of course the ideal example of the use of terror, violence, murder, beheadings and warfare.

His life is not only full of such jihadist terror, but this is all fully approved of in the Koran, the hadith, and the history of Islam. This is a religion of blood – built on blood, sustained by blood, and propagated by blood. Those are the simple and plain facts of history.

So it is the religion itself that is the problem. All that the jihadists are doing is being true to their own religion. It is the moderates who are adrift from their own faith. They are the ones who are not true Muslims. But the violent killers we have seen all too much of in the past few weeks are indeed the ones acting out their faith according to the example of Muhammad and the holy writings and traditions.

And now Paris
Oh, and in case you are wondering about the Paris incident I refer to above, here is one news report on it: “French anti-terrorist investigators are handling the case of a soldier stabbed while on duty near Paris on Saturday evening, prosecutors have confirmed.

“The soldier was wounded while on patrol in La Defense, a business district west of the French capital. Private First Class Cedric Cordier was approached from behind and stabbed in the neck with a small-bladed knife. Defence Minister Jean Yves Le Drian told reporters that he had been targeted because of his profession.

“His attacker, said to be a bearded man of North African origin, escaped and a police hunt is under way. President Francois Hollande said there was no sign so far of a direct link with the killing of a soldier in London on Wednesday, for which two suspected Islamists were arrested.

“France was rocked in March of last year by a string of killings by Islamist militant Mohamed Merah in the Toulouse area. He shot dead both French soldiers and Jewish schoolchildren before being killed in a police siege. In Saturday’s attack, the soldier was on patrol with two other soldiers and police officers at La Defense’s metro and train station, when he was approached from behind and stabbed in the neck with a knife or a box-cutter.”

While the spineless leader of France – like the spineless leaders of Britain, Sweden and America – cannot see, or rather, refuse to see, any connections here with Islam, the non-PC masses know exactly about such connections. As long as these leaders refuse to acknowledge that there is an Islamic enemy which has vowed to destroy the West, these attacks will simply keep on coming.

And don’t hold your breath, waiting for the mass demos by outraged “moderate” Muslims.

U.S. Muslim leaders call on FBI to reduce its counter-jihad activities even further

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/A/AS_AFGHANISTAN?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2013-05-20-08-57-38

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/us-muslim-leaders-call-on-fbi-to-reduce-its-counter-jihad-activities-even-further.html
http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/metroplex-muslim-ayatollah.jpeg

These Islamic supremacists got what they wanted in 2011: the scrubbing of counter-terror training materials of the truth about Islam and jihad (http://frontpagemag.com/2011/robert-spencer/obama-adminstration-bans-the-truth-about-islam-and-jihad/). But that isn't enough: jihadists are still being investigated and prosecuted, and that has to stop.

There have been questions about Mohamed Elibiary’s true allegiances for years (http://pjmedia.com/blog/mccarthyism-and-mohamed-elibiary/?singlepage=true). He was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas titled “A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary.” The visionary in question was none other than the founding father of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini.

When I questioned him about his appearance at such a conference, Elibiary claimed that he hadn’t known what kind of conference it was going to be, although he didn’t explain why he went ahead and appeared there anyway once he found out. Among those who found this explanation wanting was journalist Rod Dreher of the Dallas Morning News, whose skepticism angered Elibiary. The great moderate subsequently threatened Dreher, telling him: “Expect someone to put a banana in your exhaust pipe.”

Yet despite all this, Elibiary still got his appointment to the DHS Advisory Council. Mohamed Elibiary has risen as far as he has without ever being properly vetted because government and law enforcement officials, and the media, are so avid to find a moderate Muslim who will stand against Islamic jihad terrorism that they will accept virtually anyone’s claim to be just that, no questions asked.

"Muslim advocates urge reduced FBI anti-jihad role," by Neil Munro for The Daily Caller (http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/29/muslim-advocates-urge-reduced-fbi-anti-jihad-role/), May 29:
Politically influential Muslim activists are pushing to reduce the FBI’s role in countering Islamic terrorism and are seeking greater federal reliance on hard-line orthodox Imams.

The White House’s “Countering Violent Extremism” program “did not produce the results a lot of us were hopeful … [and] kind of collapsed towards the end of last year,” complained Mohamed Elibiary, a Texas-based advocate who was appointed to the Homeland Security Advisory Council.

“I don’t know where it is today … it presents us with the opportunity to look at the question of [whether] it is right to house it within the FBI,” he said at an May 28 event in D.C. staged by the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

The controversial CVE program was boosted in 2011, when President Barack Obama directed the FBI to work with Muslim political and community groups to suppress jihadi attacks, which are dubbed as non-Islamic “violent extremism.”

But, said Elibiary, “we spun our wheels for the last two years [and] we never got the national CVE policy across all 56 [FBI field] offices.”

Instead, said panelists, the FBI has continued its traditional policy of investigating jihadis for subsequent trial and convictions.

In contrast, the Department of Homeland Security, Elibiary said, has done much good by trying to work with Islamic groups.

The CVE program has been slammed by critics for giving too large an intermediary role to small Islamic political groups such as MPAC, which portray themselves as representatives of American Muslims. The groups try to foster the growth of distinct Islamic communities.

[B]The CVE training has also been criticized for obscuring the many orthodox Islamic strictures that spur Muslims’ violence against non-Muslims.

Elibiary’s new call for reduced policing of Islamic communities, such as Boston’s immigrant Muslims, was echoed by other speakers at the panel, which was hosted by the progressive New American Foundation in Washington D.C.

“Imams and counselors need to be given some leeway” by police, said Suhaib Webb, Imam of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center.

Webb’s cultural center is affiliated with the mosque attended by Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the ethnic Chechen Muslim who along with his brother Dzhokhar killed three Americans with two bombs at the Boston Marathon. Tsarnaev also killed a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer after Boston police broadcast his photo on TV. The police did not contact the main Boston mosque for help in identifying Tsarnaev’s image, which was captured by videos of the explosion and its aftermath.

Webb, who was disinvited from the state’s April 18 memorial service by Governor Deval Patrick, said he can persuade young men to stay away from violence. But “I need to be able to sit down with someone and not be subpoenaed or be called as a witness” in a later terrorism investigation, he said.

To succeed, government anti-terror agencies should keep their distance from such outreach to angry youth, he said. “We don’t need to be too close to each other, because that undermines our [Imams’] street credibility,” said Webb.

In fact, he added, his influence was recently reduced when he was labelled as a “moderate.” That “undermined my ability” to persuade youths, Webb said.

Muslim organizations are apprehensive about working with the FBI’s surveillance programs, which can deter cooperation, said Haris Tarin, director of the MPAC’s Washington office. “Is there a point of diminishing returns?” said Tarin, who organized the panel and invited the speakers.

Muslims in America have grievances, and “the way to address these grievances is not with violence, but with the way Islam prescribes… that way is best prescribed by Imams, not necessarily by the U.S. government,” said Rashad Hussain, President Barack Obama’s ambassador to the 57-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

Muslims in America “are concerned that terrorists are killing innocent people,” Hussain said. Killing people who are innocent is “totally repulsive to their religion,” he said.

‘“Conservative and Salafi Imams are going to produce the most credible alternatives to al Qaeda” said panelist Peter Bergen, who is the director of the national security studies at the New America Foundation.

“It is going to be conservative Muslim voices and conservative Muslim scholars that will have the credibility” to persuade youth to stay away from violence, warned Rabia Chaudry, founder of the SafeNational Collaborative, a firm which offers to teach U.S. police about Islam’s blend of religion and politics.

By “conservative,” the speakers meant orthodox Imams, not free-market, small government conservatives.

One useful option, said Elibiary, would be for the government to allow young radicals an off-ramp from a pathway to jail.
Instead of running a sting operation that sends the would-be terrorist to jail, the government should warn them of their impeding collision with the law, he said.

“Sting operations… have been over-used” by the FBI, he said.
“By the time I finish here, the FBI frankly will be upset with me,” he added.

But even as they called for deference by the FBI, the Muslim panelists complained about the difficulty of persuading Muslim youths that jihad is not allowed in the United States....

‘God of Death’: Prosecutor Drops Bombshell Revelations About Alleged Ex-Hezbollah Commander Recently Arrested in Texas


By Jason Howerton (http://www.theblaze.com/author/jason-howerton/)


http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05/29/god-of-death-bombshell-revelations-about-alleged-hezbollah-commander-arrested-in-texas/

Counterterrorism officials on Wednesday revealed stunning details (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Accused-ex-Hezbollah-member-referred-to-as-god-4559104.php) about 44-year-old Wissam Allouche, an alleged former Hezbollah commander who was arrested in Texas after being indicted on charges of not disclosing his affiliation with terrorist groups.

During Allouche’s bail hearing in San Antonio Wednesday, the prosecution said the FBI recovered documents they claim he fabricated to falsely show he had security clearances. It was also alleged that Allouche tried to “hook up” with women at Fort Sam Houston to possibly to gain access to sensitive material, MySanAntonio.com reports (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Accused-ex-Hezbollah-member-referred-to-as-god-4559104.php).

And that’s not all.

As previously reported by TheBlaze (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/05/24/infiltration-alleged-member-of-hezbollah-arrested-in-texas-after-he-tried-to-get-sensitive-defense-dept-position/), Allouche was arrested last week for failing to disclose his membership in the Amal militia and Hezbollah in Lebanon in the 1980s and lying about issues concerning his marriage to a U.S. citizen. He is also charged with failing to disclose his ties to the terror groups when he applied for a Defense Department position that required security clearance.

If you haven’t heard of Allouche or his alleged plot to gain security clearance at the Defense Department, you’re not alone. A Google news search on the frightening story yielded very few results as of Wednesday night.

The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force has reportedly been investigating Allouche for more than three years, even going as far as using an undercover agent to secretly record conversations with him.

The FBI reportedly raided his then-home in Universal City in 2011 and found documents he allegedly fabricated to show proof of security clearances, membership in U.S. special forces and Defense Department intelligence units.

It was also revealed that Allouche had at least three aliases, one of which meant “god of death.” Investigators claim the suspected Hezbollah member was known for “acting crazy or acting dangerously.”

“He admitted on tape that he was a member of Amal and that he was a commander of Hezbollah,” prosecutor Mark Roomberg reportedly told (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Accused-ex-Hezbollah-member-referred-to-as-god-4559104.php) the judge during the bail hearing on Wednesday. U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad agreed to keep Allouche in jail pending a trial.

Roomberg also said the suspect admitted to “sodomizing and murdering an Israeli POW.”

Jeff Cram, an Army criminal investigations agent and member of the FBI task force, testified that an investigation uncovered more details about Allouche’s ties to terror groups.

The investigator told the judge that the suspect was spotted by at least two people at Fort Sam Houston dressed in a U.S. military uniform bearing insignias from special forces.

Additionally, Cram said that the task force obtained eight photos from a source that show Allouche wielding assault rifles or rocket propelled grenades during his time with Amal and Hezbollah.

More from the report (http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local_news/article/Accused-ex-Hezbollah-member-referred-to-as-god-4559104.php):
[Allouche] is not charged specifically with espionage or terrorist activity. Hezbollah, conceived by Muslim clericks, was formed in the 1980s in the wake of the Israeli occupation of Lebanon, and has been considered a terrorist group by the U.S. since 1997, according to testimony and news reports. Some reports said Hezbollah was formed by members of the Amal movement, and other reports say Hezbollah gets support from Iran and Syria.
[…]
Allouche entered a not guilty plea to the charges, and his lawyer, Cynthia Orr, challenged the government’s characterization of her client.

Much of “the evidence comes from his disgruntled ex-wife and his disgruntled ex-father-in-law,” Orr told the judge.
According to the defense, Allouche has been living in the U.S. since 2002 and once owned a gas station. Prior to 2009, he reportedly worked for L3, a company that provides linguistic services to the U.S. military overseas. The suspect spent several months in Iraq.

He later went through a bitter divorce with his wife, a member of the U.S. Army, in 2009. The two met in Germany in 1999.

Orr pointed out that the Department of Homeland Security found “no derogatory information” about her client’s character and he was granted citizenship. However, the department apparently asked the Joint Terrorism Task Force to look into Allouche.

Allouche faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of lying on his naturalization forms and five years in prison if convicted of lying on security clearance forms.

TheBlaze will continue to follow Allouche’s trial and developments relating to his case.

All In The Islamist-CAIR Family
Welcome to Ahmed Bedier’s Egyptian family jihad.
by Joe Kaufman (http://frontpagemag.com/author/joe-kaufman/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/joe-kaufman/ahmed-bediers-egyptian-family-jihad/


When war broke out in Egypt, in January 2011, U.S. Muslim activist Ahmed Bedier knew he had to get involved. Revolution in Egypt was in his DNA, passed down to him and his brothers by his Islamist father. While Bedier attempts to whitewash his and his family’s extremism – and the mainstream media has generally given him a pass – the truth must now be told, including the truth about his al-Qaeda supporting sibling.

Ahmed Mostafa Bedier – the middle name is from his father, Mostafa – moved to the United States from Egypt when he was eight years old (http://www.sptimes.com/2005/11/16/Tampabay/Trying_to_teach__not_.shtml), spending his youth in both Illinois and Oregon. When his parents relocated back to Egypt, he elected to remain, as he had gotten used to secular American society.

In time, Bedier headed south to sunny Florida, where he came to be somewhat of a financial success, purchasing real estate, shopping at upscale stores, and driving a fancy BMW.

Around 2000, though, Bedier’s life began to shift dramatically. He became an observant Muslim and started hanging out at a radical mosque (http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=6125), the Islamic Society of Pinellas County (ISPC). By his description, he traded his car for the Quran. He took a position as Outreach Director for the mosque and used it as a stepping stone to become the Communications Director of the Florida office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a group with strong ties to Hamas.

Coinciding with his new job at CAIR, Bedier got involved in the well-publicized case of terrorist Sami al-Arian, becoming al-Arian’s unofficial spokesman in the media (http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=8217). Al-Arian was a co-founder and the North American leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), an organization that targets Israeli civilians with suicide and rocket attacks and has also been responsible for the deaths of Americans. After a long, drawn-out trial, al-Arian was sentenced to prison for his involvement in the terror group.

During a December 2005 television interview of Bedier, when asked if he believed al-Arian’s involvement with PIJ was immoral, Bedier notoriously answered, “To a certain degree. Now, before 1995, there was nothing immoral about it (http://www.americansagainsthate.org/releases/PR-BedierPIJ.htm).” This, while prior to 1995, PIJ took credit for five terrorist attacks – attacks which resulted in the murders of eight innocent people.

Today, Bedier is a Florida events coordinator for Islamic Relief (https://www.dropbox.com/s/og5fqamzw1bvfsr/Ahmed_Bedier_Islamic_Relief.jpg) (IR). In May 2006, Israel labeled IR a front for Hamas, after arresting the group’s Gaza program manager, Ayaz Ali, for providing “funds and assistance to various Hamas institutions and organizations (http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2006/may/31/voluntarysector.israel).” Ali admitted that he had cooperated with local Hamas operatives.

One of the IR events Bedier was involved with was a December 2011 benefit dinner and concert titled ‘Songs for the Children.’ Speaking at the event was Kifah Mustapha (https://www.dropbox.com/s/3z78ote73dtsg6l/Kifah_Mustapha_Islamic_Relief.jpg), a Chicago-area imam who was named a co-conspirator by the U.S. Justice Department for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. The Mosque Foundation, the center Mustapha is affiliated with, itself, has been a hub for Palestinian terror-related activity (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/chi-0402080265feb08,0,6712137,full.story).

No doubt, much of Ahmed Bedier’s life has centered around individuals and groups seeking to do harm to Israel, so when the opportunity arose to throw Israel’s peace partner, Hosni Mubarak, and the rest of his cabinet out of power in Bedier’s birthplace, Bedier couldn’t wait to hop on a plane to assist.

January 25, 2011 marked the “Day of Rage” in Egypt (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/25/mubarak-faces-egypt-prote_n_813572.html), when thousands of young Egyptians took to the streets to riot and call for the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Muslims from around the world, including members of terrorist organizations, traveled to Egypt to join in the violence.

Ahmed Bedier has a number of family members in Egypt, including his parents, but that’s not why he was there in February 2011. He openly stated on his Tampa radio show, True Talk, in March of that year, “I went to Egypt for the revolution…” And he got what he wanted – the fall of Mubarak.

To mark the end of the Mubarak regime, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood, the main group opposing Mubarak, traveled to Cairo to give a Friday sermon to the revolutionaries.

Qaradawi’s presence was a powerful statement in itself, as he had been banned from entering Egypt for the past three decades. Currently he is banned from entering the U.S. and England. According to The New York Times, over one million people packed Tahrir Square to hear his speech, including his prayer for the re-conquest of Jerusalem by the Muslims (http://www.memri.org/report/en/print5020.htm).

Ahmed Bedier was a witness to it, as he broadcast his radio show live from the event.

On an undated video found on Bedier’s Facebook site, Bedier is standing with U.S. Representative Keith Ellison (https://www.dropbox.com/s/oyp2c98wonpun4k/Keith_Ellison_Ahmed_Bedier_Tahrir_Square_Egypt.jpg ) next to a crowd – also in Tahrir Square – while an elderly man in a baseball cap recites a poem about the revolution. It makes sense for Ellison to be at an event such as this, as he has regularly participated at various radical Muslim functions, including speaking engagements at conferences sponsored by the Minnesota chapter of the Muslim American Society (MAS-Minnesota), at the same time the group was propagating material on its website praising Hamas and calling for the murder of Jews (http://www.americansagainsthate.org/MAS_Statements.htm).

Bedier’s younger brother, Abdellatif, accompanied Ahmed on his trip and acted as his cameraman. A picture of Abdellatif along with Ahmed and two other brothers on a boat (https://www.dropbox.com/s/mt7mpxlvam5lchj/Ahmed_Bedier_Amir_Bedier_Abdellatif_Bedier.jpg) can be found on Abdellatif’s Facebook page.

One of those brothers, Amir, became very involved in Egypt’s turmoil, so much so that he wound up getting shot in the face outside Mubarak’s executive office, where many clashes between police and rioters took place.

Ahmed Bedier created a graphic of the event (https://www.dropbox.com/s/39mwa71xuas8kc5/Amir_Bedier_shot_bullet_Ahmed_Bedier.jpg), containing a photo of a smiling Amir, an x-ray of the bullet that was lodged in his neck, and an illustration of a person depicting where the bullet entered and where it now remains. One of Ahmed’s relatives, Reham Bedeer, posted the same graphic to her Facebook page, appending to it a gruesome photo of Amir (https://www.dropbox.com/s/yqhphcxd3qirt41/Reham_Bedeer_Amir_Bedier_shot_bullet.jpg) lying near-dead on a hospital gurney with blood flowing from his eye.

In recounting the incident, Ahmed Bedier portrayed his brother as a saintly man. He wrote, “Last night my younger brother Amir was shot in the head outside the presidential palace… He went there, not to protest, but to help the injured… When we asked him who he thinks shot him, he did not blame opponents or supporters of [Mohamed] Morsi… WHEN THE MEDIA CAME TO INTERVIEW HIM TODAY AT THE HOSPITAL, because he was the only critically shot but survived, he refused to see them. Because he does not want the media to use his story to fuel more hate. Amir represents the good people of Egypt, the heroes. I’m proud of him…”

Brother Ashraf Bedier called him the “most peaceful person U’ll meet (https://www.dropbox.com/s/7xsn4yk0na458sm/Ashraf_Bedier_Amir_Bedier_shot_bullet.jpg).”

However, just as he has many times in the past, when he’s labeled himself a “civil rights advocate,” Ahmed Bedier was not being honest about his brother. The truth is, Ahmed’s brother, Amir Bedier – the individual Ahmed said he’s proud of and the man Ashraf said is “peaceful” – is a follower of al-Qaeda.

Ahmed’s “hero” brother, just this month, posted to his Facebook page pictures of Osama bin Laden and bin Laden’s mentor, Abdullah Azzam (https://www.dropbox.com/s/c8l94n7o27dpraz/Amir_Bedier_Osama_bin_Laden_Abdullah_Azzam.jpg). In fact, he changed his profile picture from one of him as a youngster playing with his brother Abdellatif to that of bin Laden. Now, his profile photo is that of Azzam.

One of Amir Bedier’s Facebook friends, Mohamed Arafa, ‘Liked’ Amir’s bin Laden posting. Arafa, who claims to be located in New York City, posted a bin Laden picture to his own Facebook page, stating about it in Arabic, “G-d’s mercy be upon you, oh Arab Sheikh, oh Emir of the Mujahideen, Sword of Islam.” He also posted a graphic of a bleeding red Star of David with the caption, “The World’s Leading Terrorist – Israel,” stating about it, “Let’s go guys kill those M****F**** (https://www.dropbox.com/s/8esi4fnjo9g05q1/Amir_Bedier_friend_Mohamed_Arafa_Hitler.jpg).” And he posted different pictures of Hitler, one with the following quote, “I killed half the Jews and left the other half for you to discover why I killed the first.”

Another friend of Amir’s, Karim Gamal, posted photos of bin Laden and current leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri (https://www.dropbox.com/s/psxy2hrkhvockgg/Amir_Bedier_friend_Karim_Gamal_bin_Laden_Zawahiri. jpg), to his Facebook page. And he used one of the bin Laden photos for his profile pic.

Yet another Facebook friend of Amir Bedier ironically goes by the name Osama but does not seem to have any affiliation with al-Qaida. It is Amir’s brother, Osama Bedier.

Like his older brother Ahmed, Osama came to the United States with his parents when he was a kid (http://www.fastcompany.com/1588671/whos-next-osama-bedier), and like Ahmed, when his parents went back to Egypt, he decided he wanted to keep the U.S. as his home. He created an internet networking and website development company with Ahmed – with two locations. Ahmed ran the main operation out of Tampa Bay, Florida, and Osama ran the sister office out of California, where he had settled and where he currently lives.

When Ahmed became radicalized, the company was abandoned. However, Osama stuck with the computing field, going to work for PayPal and then Google, where he just this month was ousted from his job (http://www.mainstreet.com/article/smart-spending/technology/google-wallet-rip) after his Google Wallet creation had been deemed a failure. His departure from PayPal wasn’t on a positive note either, as PayPal had sued him for allegedly divulging “trade secrets” to Google.

Osama Bedier’s main focus may be computers, but he still has very strong views when it comes to his heritage. This past April, days after the Boston Marathon bombing, following the killing of bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev and the capture of suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Osama callously tweeted, “Study: Threat of Muslim-American terrorism in U.S. exaggerated” along with a link to the January 2010 article discussing the more-than-three-year-old study. Not one mention of the bombers or victims was made by Bedier.

On the day Hosni Mubarak stepped down as leader of Egypt, February 11, 2011, Osama Bedier, in his excitement, tweeted, “Welcome back [E]gypt, back on the road [to] your historic glory” and “So happy for the people’s revolution in my homeland (https://www.dropbox.com/s/ghymm18ek0e0hfy/Osama_Bedier_Boston_Marathon_Bombing_Egyptian_Revo lution.jpg).”

The revolution Osama Bedier was talking about was being led by the Muslim Brotherhood (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/25/world/middleeast/25egypt.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2&hp) (mentioned earlier), an Islamist movement whose headquarters is located in Cairo, where the Bediers were born. For many Muslims, an Egypt ruled by Islam is the only preferred choice, even if the ruling group is a terrorist organization.

The extremist attitudes and actions of the Bedier brothers were passed down to them by the patriarch of the family, their father Mostafa.
When his son Ahmed created a graphic of Egyptian presidential candidate Ahmed Shafiq speaking with then-President Hosni Mubarak with the caption, “NO TO AHMAD SHAFIQ – Because a vote for Shafiq is a vote against the Revolution,” Mostafa placed it on his Facebook page and, above it in Arabic, wrote, “Choose Sharia.” (https://www.dropbox.com/s/7zn1dubhl1g008q/Mostafa_Bedier_Ahmad_Shafiq_Choose_Sharia.jpg)

Sharia is the moral code and religious law of Islam. It can be interpreted to include such acts of brutality as the chopping off of limbs, the beating of disobedient wives, the stoning of suspected adulterers, and the throwing of homosexuals from tall buildings. Because of its violent nature, Sharia law has been deemed incompatible with democratic society and Western values, and this has caused some U.S. lawmakers to work to pass legislation banning it from being applied in American courts in cases involving Muslims.

Ahmed Bedier has been one of the leaders in the fight against such legislation, but given his Islamist background we can understand why.
To the joy of Ahmed Bedier and his Islamist father Mostafa, Ahmed Shafiq would lose his election to Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi. Since then, Morsi and his government allies passed a new Egyptian Constitution (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/30/world/middleeast/panel-drafting-egypts-constitution-prepares-quick-vote.html?ref=world&pagewanted=all&_r=0), which in fact did include Sharia law.

In November 2012, TIME magazine gave Morsi an exclusive interview to discuss a number of subjects, including Morsi’s beginnings with the Brotherhood. About this, Ahmed Bedier posted to Facebook – no doubt, echoing the twisted sentiments of his family – “It’s MORSI TIME! (https://www.dropbox.com/s/vphrbtcixc1csy8/Mohamed_Morsi_Ahmed_Bedier_TIME.jpg)”

Chicago: Would-be jihad mass murderer gets 23 years of prison dawah -- "What would have happened had Hassoun's bomb been real would have made Boston look like a minor incident"


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/30/sami-samir-hassoun-senten_n_3359234.html

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/chicago-would-be-jihad-mass-murderer-gets-23-years-of-prison-dawah----what-would-have-happened-had-h.html


If he had succeeded in committing mass murder in Wrigleyville, we would have been treated to another round of mainstream media handwringing over "anti-Muslim backlash," and Barack Obama telling us that the bombing had nothing to do with Islam. As it is, Hassoun will have plenty of time in jail to contemplate the Qur'an's passages exhorting jihad warfare against Infidels and plotting his next move.

"Sami Samir Hassoun Sentenced: Would-Be Wrigleyville Backpack Bomber Gets 23 Years," by Michael Tarm for the Associated Press (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/30/sami-samir-hassoun-senten_n_3359234.html), May 30:
CHICAGO — A judge raised the specter of the Boston Marathon on Thursday as he sentenced a young Lebanese immigrant to 23 years in prison for placing a backpack he believed contained a powerful bomb along a bustling city street near the Chicago Cubs' baseball stadium.

Everyone at Sami Samir Hassoun's sentencing in a crowded courtroom in Chicago could not help but think of the bombs that went off a month ago concealed in backpacks on the East Coast, killing three people and wounding hundreds more, U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman said.

"Let's give the elephant in the room a name: It's called the Boston Marathon," he said. "What would have happened had (Hassoun's) bomb been real would have made Boston look like a minor incident."

Earlier, prosecutor Joel Hammerman held up the ominous-looking but harmless device fashioned from a paint can that Hassoun put in a trash bin near Wrigley Field, placing it in front of the judge. Hassoun was told by undercover FBI agents, the prosecutor said, that it would destroy half the city block and kill dozens of people.

Minutes before the sentence was announced, Hassoun, a 25-year-old one-time Chicago baker and candy-store worker, apologized for what he'd done in a five-minute statement. Crying, he asked the judge if he could address his family and friends, and then turned to look at them on a nearby bench.

"I am sorry for the actions that I made and the shame I brought on you," Hassoun said, struggling to keep his composure. "I promise I will become a better person ... and make it up to you."

His mother sobbed aloud and when Hassoun finished, she said in an audible voice to her son, "I love you!"

Gettleman said he accepted the defense depiction of Hassoun as a uniquely gullible youth and that an informant may have been eager to please his FBI handlers by leading him on – though the judge said that was no excuse for Hassoun's crime.
Ah, yet again the entrapment defense. What would it take for you to commit an act of jihad mass murder? Could an FBI agent convince you by any combination of love or money to do such a thing?
During the hearing, prosecutors played secret video recordings of Hassoun during the sting in which he talks about killing people. He explains that one reason to stage the attack along bar-strewn Clark Street is that late-night revelers will be so drunk they wouldn't notice him dropping a bomb into the trash bin.

In another chilling video shown in court, Hassoun smiles and hums a tune to himself on the night of Saturday, Sept. 18, 2010 – moments before heading off to what he thought would be a major terrorist attack.

"You feel good?" an undercover agent asks.

"Yeah, I'm (doing) great man," Hassoun responds.

In another video, Hassoun rambles incoherently about then-Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley and the need to overthrow him in a revolution.

"When you see Mr. Hassoun on these tapes, all you can think of is that – this guy is really out to lunch," Gettleman said before turning to look at Hassoun. "I don't know what was going through your mind – and maybe you didn't know either."
Prosecutors also played a surveillance video of Hassoun, wearing a black hoodie, dropping the device into a trash bin at about 12:20 a.m. on Sept. 19, 2010 – while people crowded the sidewalk and music blared from area bars. FBI agents arrested him moments later.

As part of an agreement with the government, Hassoun pleaded guilty last year to two explosives counts. In return, he faced a sentencing range of 20 to 30 years, rather than a maximum term of life in prison....

The defense suggested investigators may have come close to entrapping Hassoun, arguing the informant egged Hassoun on to acquiesce to ever-more ominous-sounding plots.

"(The informant) preyed on Sami's fantasies ... and agents helped make that fantasy come true," another of Hassoun's attorney's, Matthew Madden, told the court Thursday. "If left to his own devices, nobody would ever have heard of Sami Hassoun."

Prone to boasting and eager to impress, Hassoun even made absurd claims he could make a gun out of two pieces of wood and a spring, and a bomb out of baking soda, Madden said.

But so inept was Hassoun, he bought a backpack, walkie-talkies and some batteries agents asked him to buy and the FBI then incorporated it into the dud bomb fashioned at its lab in Quantico, Va., he added.

Prosecutors concede Hassoun did waffle about his plans, allegedly talking about profiting monetarily and then broaching the idea of poisoning Lake Michigan or assassinating Daley.

But prosecutors say Hassoun himself concluded that maximum damage could be inflicted by a blast next to the popular Sluggers World Class Sports Bar, just steps from Wrigley Field.

Undercover agents also repeatedly asked Hassoun if he wanted to back out, telling him there would be no shame in doing so. But he repeatedly declined, saying he wanted to press ahead," Hammerman told the court Thursday.

"It was his understanding that in 15 minutes (after placing the backpack in the bin), there would be death and carnage all over Clark Street," the prosecutor said.

Oregon: Muslim wastewater treatment operator accused of funding jihad terrorism

http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2013/05/reaz_qadir_khans_ties_to_suici.html

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/oregon-muslim-wastewater-treatment-operator-accused-of-funding-jihad-terrorism.html


One wonders what access he may have had to the Portland water supply. "Reaz Qadir Khan's alleged ties to suicide bomber Ali Jaleel: Portland to the Maldives (video preview)," by Kimberly A.C. Wilson for The Oregonian (http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2013/05/reaz_qadir_khans_ties_to_suici.html), May 29:
Portland resident Reaz Qadir Khan was arrested in March on a shocking charge: conspiracy to support terrorism.

Khan, now 49, was a Pakistani-born naturalized U.S. citizen who moved to Portland in 2005 to work as a wastewater treatment operator for the city of Portland.

Just a month after moving here, federal prosecutors allege, Khan got in touch by email with a friend across the globe: a young extremist from the Maldives Islands named Ali Jaleel. The younger man is quoted in a federal indictment describing a desire he and Khan once shared to seek martyrdom for Islam.

Prosecutors say Khan would go on to finance Jaleel’s terrorist training three years later, advancing the young jihadi’s role in a plot to destroy a government intelligence building in Lahore, Pakistan. The 2009 attack killed roughly 30 people and injured more than 300.

Prosecutors won’t say when they think Khan grew close to Ali Jaleel, more than a decade Khan’s junior. But the answer is likely to be found somewhere in Jaleel’s relationship to the land of Khan’s birth, Pakistan.

For clues to why a Portland city worker may have become enmeshed, as prosecutors say he did, in a deadly bomb plot, scour the past of the man he is accused of helping....

US Islamist Militants Jailed For Internet Threats Are Now Posting From Prison

By Mark Hosenball, Reuters (http://www.businessinsider.com/)

Jesse Curtis Morton


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - American Islamist militants jailed for threatening violence over the Internet are still posting political writings on the Web - while serving time in federal prison.

Jesse Curtis Morton, a convert to Islam who writes under the name Younus Abdullah Muhammed, posted a lengthy tract opposing U.S. drone policy, on May 21, on the www.islampolicy.com (http://www.islampolicy.com) website that he launched in 2010.

Morton is serving a prison term of more than 11 years in a Pennsylvania federal prison after pleading guilty in 2012 to conspiring to solicit murder, make threatening communications and "use the Internet to place others in fear."

Morton, from Brooklyn, New York, and previously a student at Columbia University, was jailed for threatening the writers of the satirical television show "South Park" for their depiction of the Prophet Mohammed in a bear outfit.

Morton wrote in his latest essay that U.S. use of lethal drones against al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Yemen had encouraged homegrown Islamist extremism.

"The drone assassination of Anwar Awlaki in Yemen, an Islamic preacher with tens of thousands of ardent Western followers, has yet to be avenged but his popularity has only risen after death," Morton wrote, referring to the American Muslim preacher killed in a 2011 U.S. drone strike in Yemen.

Another American militant, Zachary Chesser, who was found guilty of conspiring with Morton to encourage attacks via the Internet on the creators of "South Park," has also posted material while in prison. His postings appear on another website www.aseerun.org (http://www.aseerun.org) and mainly air personal grievances, along with some political material.

Chesser is serving a 25-year prison sentence in Marion, Illinois, for the "South Park" case and for attempting to join the Somali militant group al Shabaab.

Neither Morton nor other representatives of IslamPolicy responded to a request for comment sent to an email address posted on the website. A telephone number posted on the site was out of order.

Lawyers for Morton and Chesser did not respond to requests for comment.
Under free-speech guarantees in the U.S. Constitution, federal authorities cannot impose blanket bans on such postings by convicts, although email access is limited for prisoners, and messages inciting violence are prohibited.

Morton and Chesser were involved in running the now defunct website RevolutionMuslim.blogspot.com.

That was linked to a U.S. affiliate of banned British group Al Muhajiroun, whose followers have included a man arrested for the brutal killing of a British soldier in London last week.

Since federal prisoners are allowed to transmit closely vetted email messages via special channels only to a small list of approved recipients, it is possible that messages and essays by prisoners such Morton and Chesser first went to some of those recipients, who then arranged for posting on the Internet.

PROTECTED SPEECH
Officials said they did not know precisely how Morton and Chesser arranged for the posting of their messages.

"Their communications with the outside are limited to approved contacts only and subject to careful monitoring and review to ensure that they do not facilitate criminal activity or pose a threat to the public or the correctional facility," said Dean Boyd, a Justice Department spokesman.

"While we may disagree with some opinions expressed by inmates in their limited communications to approved contacts outside prison, we may not prosecute individuals for speech protected under the First Amendment," Boyd said.

U.S. law enforcement sources said authorities would likely move quickly against Morton if Internet materials posted while he is in prison directly encouraged violence.

Morton apologized after his sentencing in 2012 and his most recent writings are not extremist by Islamist militant standards. They are mostly musings on the role of Islam in Middle Eastern political life.

A senior U.S. law enforcement official said Morton's current website was still important among U.S. militants, although Morton had toned down his writings.

Older material still accessible on the site includes communiques from Afghanistan's Taliban group, videos promoting the views of Abdullah al Faisal, a Jamaican imam who was jailed by British authorities in 2003 for soliciting the murder of Jews and Hindus, and exhortations including, "No peace with the Jews!"

"It is surprising and ironic that two individuals, whose extensive online activity influenced and inspired a wide network of would-be jihadists, are still able to reach those audiences from prison," said Oren Siegel, director of the Center on Extremism at the Anti-Defamation League.

ISNA Discusses Interfaith Success with Erdogan
U.S. Brotherhood entity boasts of political alliances with non-Muslims.
by Ryan Mauro (http://frontpagemag.com/author/ryan-mauro/)

http://frontpagemag.com/2013/ryan-mauro/isna-discusses-interfaith-success-with-erdogan/


Tens of thousands of Turks are protesting (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/02/turkey-protests-2013_n_3375888.html) Islamist Prime Minister Erdogan, but the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood is happy to welcome him. On May 18, Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) officials met with Erdogan. Of all the things to talk about, ISNA most emphasized the success of its interfaith political alliances. The lesson will not be forgotten by Turkey as it tries to reclaim its position as the leader of the Muslim world.

According to an ISNA press release (http://www.isna.net/isna-joins-national-and-californian-muslim-leadership-to-meet-with-turkish-prime-minister.html), Dr. Mohamed Elsanousi, its Community Outreach Director, briefed Erdogan in San Francisco on ISNA’s activism. As an example of its success, ISNA pointed to an interfaith alliance called the Shoulder-to-Shoulder campaign. (http://www.shouldertoshouldercampaign.org/)

Internal U.S. Muslim Brotherhood documents and the U.S. government agree that ISNA is a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood identity, despite its denials. The importance it places in its interfaith outreach is evident when you look at its Office for Interfaith and Community Alliances, located (http://www.isna.net/interfaith-partners.html) within the United Methodist Building in Washington D.C. It is led by former Secretary-General Sayyid Syeed who was recorded (http://www.granddeception.com/) in 2006 saying, “Our job is to change the constitution of America.”

ISNA also asked for Erdogan’s involvement in an international campaign to help minorities in Muslim countries. This sounds like a “moderate” goal but there’s an Islamist component even here. The international campaign ISNA is talking about is led by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Last year, ISNA President Mohamed Magid and Elsanousi traveled to Mauritania for a conference (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3699/white-house-rep-attends-event-hosted-by-mb-figure) about the “challenges faced by religious minorities in Muslim-majority communities.” It was hosted by the vice chair of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, whose President (http://www.iumsonline.net/en/default.asp?MenuID=42) is Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi. Also present was the Obama Administration’s envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Rashad Hussain.

ISNA’s publicized list (http://www.isna.net/interfaith-partners.html) of “interfaith partners” includes the United Methodist Church, American Baptist Church USA, Presbyterian Church (USA), Episcopal Church, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, United Church of Christ, Jewish Theological Seminary of America, Jewish Council for Public Affairs, Union for Reform Judaism, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Hartford Seminary and the National Council of Churches in the USA, among others.

Many of these partners belong to the Shoulder-to-Shoulder campaign that ISNA boasted about to Erdogan. The ISNA-allied interfaith coalition published a letter of protest to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on March 12, 2013, blasting the New York Police Department for showing The Third Jihad. (http://youtu.be/4XUub1no1qw)

Although the film’s narrator is a devout Muslim, Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, Shoulder-to-Shoulder labeled it as anti-Muslim “bigoted propaganda.” ISNA’s Muslim Brotherhood origins are mentioned in the film. ISNA uses the coalition to discredit its critics as haters of Muslims. One of the coalition’s stated tasks is:

“Urging each faith group to prioritize ending anti-Muslim sentiment by encouraging their regional bodies and congregations to engage in this work, discussing the issue of anti-Muslim bigotry at their annual meetings, and seeking press coverage of their efforts on the issue.”

Erdogan was also in the presence of ISNA on May 15, when he spoke in support of a $100 million mega-mosque project in Maryland (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/turkey-stakes-claim-america-100-million-mega-mosque) launched by his government. ISNA President Mohamed Magid was in attendance. Also present was the leader of the Islamic Circle of North America, a group that is also identified as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood affiliate in a 1991 memo. (http://www.clarionproject.org/Muslim_Brotherhood_Explanatory_Memorandum)

Turkey’s project will probably be the largest Islamic site in the Western Hemisphere and it will consist of Ottoman architecture, another sign that Turkey aims to relive its glory days. At the meeting with ISNA, Erdogan said that the U.N. Security Council must be changed to fit additional Muslim members; a hint at his aspiration for Turkey to join it and therefore have veto power over any decision.

Erdogan also told the Muslim leaders in San Francisco to unite for the sake of promoting democracy. In ISNA’s words, he talked of “the notion of justice as essential to Islamic rule.” Justice must govern all aspects of society, including the economy, culture and politics and Muslims must push for this, he said.

Erdogan’s version of “democracy” and “justice” is why tens of thousands of secular Turks are now demonstrating against him. His confrontational stance towards Israel is designed to make him the unofficial king of the Islamists. (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/crowning-erdogan-new-king-islamists) Unlike the more hardline Islamists like Al-Qaeda and the Iranian regime, Erdogan’s implementation of the Islamist doctrine of gradualism (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/gradualism-islamist-strategy-victory) has allowed him to maintain popular and international support, with President Obama calling him a “friend.”

ISNA (and now, Erdogan) is well-aware of the success of its interfaith outreach. People of faith who oppose the Islamists must also become aware.

CAIR Demands School Accommodate Muslim Prayers, Attacks Off-Site Voluntary Bible Lesson

By Kyle Olson (http://townhall.com/columnists/kyleolson/)


http://townhall.com/columnists/kyleolson/2013/06/05/cair-demands-school-accommodate-muslim-prayers-attacks-offsite-voluntary-bible-lesson-n1611968?utm_source=thdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl


How is the radical Council on American-Islamic Relations bending public school policy to its will?

Two stories from Michigan tell the tale.

From a CAIR press release (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/cair-mich-school-district-apologizes-for-bible-study-forms-63147182.html):
The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) said today that a Detroit-area school district has apologized for handing out permission slips for Bible study (http://townhall.com/columnists/kyleolson/2013/06/05/cair-demands-school-accommodate-muslim-prayers-attacks-offsite-voluntary-bible-lesson-n1611968?utm_source=thdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl#) classes to elementary school students.

CAIR-MI sent a letter to Roseville Public Schools after receiving a complaint from two parents of children who attend Huron Park Elementary School about distribution by teachers of permission slips for the Bible classes at a local Baptist church.
CAIR Executive Director Dawus Walid wrote in a letter to the school district, “School staff and teachers are not to serve as advocates for one particular religion or congregation within a religion by passing out slips inviting parents to give permission for their children to attend religious instruction.”

But that’s precisely what CAIR sought in the nearby Dearborn district.

The Arab American News (http://www.arabamericannews.com/news/index.php?mod=article&cat=Community&article=6610) reported that CAIR staff “recently met with Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Brian Whiston to discuss concerns from some parents regarding prayer (http://townhall.com/columnists/kyleolson/2013/06/05/cair-demands-school-accommodate-muslim-prayers-attacks-offsite-voluntary-bible-lesson-n1611968?utm_source=thdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl#) accommodations in Dearborn Public Schools.

“Dearborn Public Schools has implemented a policy which fully accommodates student-led prayer in (http://townhall.com/columnists/kyleolson/2013/06/05/cair-demands-school-accommodate-muslim-prayers-attacks-offsite-voluntary-bible-lesson-n1611968?utm_source=thdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl#) all the schools, as well as unexcused absences for students who leave early on Fridays for Jumu'ah prayers. CAIR-MI is currently in discussion with Melvindale Public Schools to get similar accommodations for students that are now in place for Dearborn Public Schools.”

So Muslims can conduct religious activities within a public school, but Christians can’t go off-site to receive voluntary Bible lessons? What’s wrong with this picture?

Is political correctness accommodating such hypocrisy?

Muslim Activism Done Right
A new Canadian Muslim group takes a stand against Islamic jihad.
by Michael Volpe (http://frontpagemag.com/author/volpe/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/volpe/muslim-activism-done-right/


The news pages, both in print and online, are routinely splashed with a plethora of stories about groups that claim to represent Muslims (think: CAIR) and that contribute to the demonization of the Global War on Terror (GWT). Rarely are readers exposed to a Muslim group that fights this demonization.

But in Canada, a new group called the Progressive Muslims Institute Canada (PMIC) (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Progressive-Muslims-Institute-Canada/532732110118067) has been vocal in its opposition to Islamic jihadists, and they’ve been able to build bridges with the Jewish community.

In a wide-ranging interview not only with PMIC but with representatives of B’Nai B’rith of Canada, one of the groups that has reciprocated PMIC’s extended hand, FrontPage Magazine was able to get a view of these activists’ unique perspective of the GWT.

Tahir Gora is the Director General of PMIC, and he said that the goal of the group is not only to fight extremism but to make sure that there is a clearly separated marker between religious and political affairs:
Progressive Muslims Institute Canada (PMIC) strongly denounces all forms extremism and terrorism in the name of Islam. The group advocates and promotes gender equality. It promotes liberal, progressive and secular values among Muslims and believes in clear separation between religion and state.
As part of its efforts, PMIC has also formed the Muslim Committee against Anti-Semitism (MCAAS), which, according to Gora, was “established to counter and discourage ideas and concepts of anti-Semitism amongst Canadian Muslim Diaspora. It conducts monthly seminars, workshops, conferences and rallies in order to curb anti-Semitism.”

Included in those efforts was a rally held on Sunday, June 9, 2013, at Queens Park in Toronto, Canada. That rally was organized in response to a series of terrorist attacks committed around the world by Islamic terrorists.

One speaker, Arshad Mahmood the PMIC honorary director, said, “I stand here today and publicly announce that I am sorry. I am sorry that I did not come here before. I am sorry that I did not stand up when my religion was being hijacked.”

Among those who covered that rally was the Jewish Tribune of Canada (http://www.jewishtribune.ca/news/2013/06/11/i-am-sorry-that-i-did-not-stand-up), the media arm of B’nai B’rith of Canada.

B’nai B’rith is a worldwide organization that operates on behalf of the social welfare of Jews the world over. Sam Eskanasi handles press matters for B’Nai B’rith in Canada, and he said that PMIC is part of a number of Muslim groups in Canada, locked in a struggle between those looking to stand up to extremists and reach out to the Jewish community and others that tacitly approve of Islamic extremism while demonizing the Jewish race. According to Eskanasi,
The Jewish community has a good, working relationship with the certain branches of the Muslim community in Canada. Some personalities such as Tahir Gora and, Asma Mahmood, Salma and Naseema Siddiqui … are among those with whom we work on a regular basis and on a variety of issues. We regularly interface with them through interfaith dialogues, but also express our concerns regarding radicalization.
However, there are many other groups in Canada with whom B’nai B’rith has not been able to form such a nice relationship:
There are groups within the community that are not as open to dialogue with us such as the Canadian Arab Federation (CAF), whose former president Khaled Mouammar, who had made hateful remarks, or the Canadian Islamic Congress, who have, with the CAF, been accused of spreading “hateful sentiments” toward Israel and Jews. This is in addition to those who hold a yearly “Al-Quds day rally” or who have held rallies blaming “Zionists” for the sectarian violence in Pakistan[.]
Both Gora and Eskanasi said that Canadians in general underestimate the threat from Islamic jihadists because there hasn’t yet been a successful attack on Canadian soil. Both say that Canada’s long-time official stance against Islamic extremism makes the country an inviting target. Eskanasi noted that this is a double edged sword:
There is a clear and present danger to Canada as we continue to be outspoken against the threats of Islamic extremism. One need not look much further than a recent government report or the VIA Rail Bombing plot, let alone the infamous Toronto 18 from 2006. Canada is one of, if not the only country, mentioned by Osama Bin-Laden and Al-Qaida that has not been hit.
Many long-time observers of the Middle East note with great sadness that the Jewish, Arab and Muslim people have a great deal of natural similarities that aren’t being recognized as a result of longstanding bad blood and the growth of Muslim extremism.

Movements PMIC are meant to counteract that dynamic and bring people together.

Lebanese Canadian Bank to Pay $102 Million in Hizballah Laundering Case

The Beirut-based Lebanese Canadian Bank ("LCB") will pay $102 million as part of a settlement (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2191.pdf) reached this week with federal prosecutors. The LCB was accused (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1861.pdf) in a December 2011 complaint of funneling money to the Lebanese terrorist group Hizballah as part of a global money-laundering scheme.

The "settlement shows that banks laundering money for terrorists and narco-traffickers will face consequences for their actions, wherever they may be located. This type of money laundering network fuels the operations of both terrorists and drug traffickers, and will continue to use every resource at our disposal to sever the connection between terrorists, narco-traffickers, and those who fund their lethal agenda," Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a Justice Department press release (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2193.pdf).

Lebanese financial institutions tied to Hizballah wired over $300 million from Lebanon into the United States to buy and ship used cars to West Africa as part of a money laundering scheme, the complaint alleged. Profits from the car sales and narcotics were then funneled back to Lebanon through money laundering channels controlled by Hizballah, including LCB and two Lebanese exchange houses – the Hassan Ayash Exchange Company and Ellissa Holding – as well as their subsidiaries and affiliates. The lawsuit sought $480 million in civil money laundering penalties from the Lebanese financial entities.

The Treasury Department identified LCB as a "primary money laundering concern" in February 2011 and prohibited American financial institutions from doing business with the bank. The bank allegedly laundered as much as $200 million per month in drug proceeds for a Hizballah-tied international drug ring led by Lebanese drug lord Ayman Joumaa. Joumaa was indicted (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1856.pdf) in November 2011 on charges of transporting 100 tons of Columbian cocaine to the Los Zetas Mexican drug cartel.

Hizballah was designated (http://www.state.gov/j/ct/rls/other/des/123085.htm) a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) in October 1997 and as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-112sres613is/pdf/BILLS-112sres613is.pdf) in October 2001. The Hassan Ayash Exchange Company ("Ayash") and the Ellissa Holding Company were designated (http://www.treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages/tg1035.aspx) as Significant Narcotics Traffickers under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act (the "Kingpin Act").

In a separate settlement order issued last week, Ayash agreed (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2193.pdf) to forfeit more than $720,000 to the United States.

IMAM IN TENNESSEE: JEWS AND CHRISTIANS ARE FILTHY, THEIR PROPERTY BELONGS TO THE MUSLIM…….

This is how the adherents to Basic Islam 101 have to believe.

US based Imam, Yasir Qadhi preaches openly that non muslims lives are forfeit and their property is legal for muslims to take in jihad, (and this would include women as sex slaves) yet no charges are brought against him.

Tennessee imam: Jews and Christians filthy, their lives and property can be taken in jihad by the Muslims

Note also his words about jihad, quoting Muhammad: “I have been commanded to fight the people until they testify la illaha illa Allah [there is no god but Allah].”

And Qadhi says: “The life and property of a mushrik [one who worships others besides Allah] holds no value in the state of jihad….which means if they don’t sayla illaha illa Allah, their lives and property are halal” — that is, permitted to be taken by the Muslims.

Bloomberg vs. CAIR’s Interfaith Friends
New York City mayor vows to veto bill supported by Muslim Brotherhood front groups and the ACLU.
by Ryan Mauro (http://frontpagemag.com/author/ryan-mauro/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/ryan-mauro/bloomberg-vs-cairs-interfaith-friends/


The Shoulder-to-Shoulder Campaign, an interfaith coalition allied with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), is praising the passage of two bills by the New York City Council aimed at stopping the alleged abuses of the NYPD. Mayor Bloomberg says he will veto the bills, even though they passed with enough support to override it.

The passed bills, the End Discriminatory Profiling Bill and NYPD Oversight Bill, outraged Mayor Bloomberg and NYPD Police Commissioner Ray Kelly. The latter bill requires the overseeing of the NYPD by an independent Inspector-General. The former opens the door for the NYPD to be sued in state court for policies that disproportionately affect certain ages, genders, sexual orientations or housing statuses.

Mayor Bloomberg considers the bills to be a matter of “life and death” vows to “not give up for one minute.”

“The bill would allow virtually everyone in New York City to sue the Police Department and individual police officers over the entire range of law enforcement functions they perform,” Kelly explained (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/27/nyregion/new-york-city-council-votes-to-increase-oversight-of-police-dept.html).

He said the result will be skyrocketing liability costs, the unnecessary use of resources and an overall decrease in effectiveness.

When asked about the so-called problem of NYPD racial profiling, Bloomberg dismissively said, “Nobody racially profiles.” He made perhaps the most politically-incorrect statement (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/29/nyregion/bloomberg-says-math-backs-police-stops-of-minorities.html) of his career in defense of the NYPD:

“…They just keep saying, ‘Oh it’s a disproportionate percentage of a particular ethnic group.’ That may be, but it’s not a disproportionate percentage of those who witnesses and victims describe as committing the murder. In that case, incidentally, I think we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little.”

Bloomberg refuses (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2013/06/30/bloomberg-wont-apologize-for-remarks-on-stop-and-frisk/) to apologize. “The numbers clearly show that the stops are generally proportionate with suspect’s descriptions,” he said.

The bills were aggressively supported by the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), joined by the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU has often allied itself with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood network (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/aclu%E2%80%99s-islamist-friends) that CAIR and ISNA belong to.

CAIR’s chapter in New York is among its more radical ones. Former CAIR-NY director Cyrus McGoldrick (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/cair-official-sued-defamation) has sent out tweets with anti-law enforcement rhetoric and support for Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and the destruction of Israel.

CAIR-NY board president Zead Ramadan (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/cair-official-candidate-ny-city-council) refused to condemn Hamas in December 2011 and has portrayed American-Muslims as a brutally-repressed minority on Iranian state TV. Another board member, Lamis Deek, has praised Hamas, supports the elimination of Israel and claims (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3489/cair-official-sees-nypd-cia-israeli-conspiracy) that the NYPD has a secret alliance with Israel to target Muslims. Deek also supported (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/cair-officials-celebrate-muslim-brotherhood-victory) the Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Egypt as a blow to American “imperialism.”

The Shoulder-to-Shoulder Campaign, an interfaith political coalition that includes ISNA as a member, celebrated the bills’ passage. ISNA is so proud of its work in putting together the coalition that it highlighted it as a crowning achievement (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/ryan-mauro/isna-discusses-interfaith-success-with-erdogan/) when it met with Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan in May.

The Campaign’s members (http://shouldertoshouldercampaign.org/members/) include American Baptist Churches USA, the Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, the Presbyterian Church (USA), the United Church of Christ and many others.

ISNA and its interfaith allies’ fight with the NYPD reached out a whole other level when the news broke that officers had been shown The Third Jihad (http://www.clarionproject.org/), which Police Commissioner Ray Kelly appeared in. The film discusses the Islamist threat to American and mentions that ISNA and CAIR are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Shoulder-to-Shoulder responded by writing a writing a letter (http://www.theird.org/page.aspx?pid=2355) to Mayor Bloomberg blasting the NYPD and the Clarion Project (http://www.clarionproject.org/), the producer of the film, for promoting a negative image of Muslims—even though the film is narrated by a devout Muslim.

In its May/June magazine, ISNA fired at the NYPD (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/isna-decries-nypds-counterterrorism-operations) and made the Department sound like New York City Muslims are being intimidated into silence and are even afraid to pray in public. In an almost comical blow to its own credibility, ISNA’s article said “Muslim terrorism is not a threat after 9/11.”

Mayor Bloomberg doesn’t have the strongest anti-Islamist credentials (http://frontpagemag.com/2011/ryan-mauro/mayor-bloomberg%E2%80%99s-jihad-tv-partnership/), but his standing on the side of the NYPD against the CAIR-supported bill is something he should be praised for. He previously defended the NYPD when it faced an avalanche of criticism for its reasonable counter-terrorism efforts, such as investigating Muslim Students Association chapters with evidence of extremism. (http://frontpagemag.com/2011/ryan-mauro/nypd-under-fire-for-investigating-muslim-students-association/)

Bloomberg’s veto will be overridden if none of the New York City Council (http://council.nyc.gov/html/home/home.shtml) members change their mind. It is up to residents to convince them not to believe the hysteria of CAIR and its interfaith allies.

Islamist Group in America:
We’ll Impose Sharia on Christians
Hizb ut-Tahrir’s blunt website statement.
by Ryan Mauro (http://frontpagemag.com/author/ryan-mauro/)


http://frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/HizbTahrir.jpg

http://frontpagemag.com/2013/ryan-mauro/islamist-group-in-america-well-impose-sharia-on-christians/


Hizb ut-Tahrir, a group so radical that the Muslim Brotherhood won’t even touch it, lives and breathes in America. Part of the reason it’s a fringe group in the U.S. is because it is mostly honest about its objectives. For example, one of its websites answers (http://www.khilafah.com/index.php/the-khilafah/non-muslims/16139-what-are-the-rights-and-responsibilities-of-christians-within-the-islamic-state) a question about the status of Christians in an Islamic State by frankly admitting that Sharia is imposed upon them and other non-Muslims.

“Everyone who carries the citizenship of the state enjoys the rights and is bound by Shari’ah obligations,” the Hizb ut-Tahrir (HUT) website says.

The article later reiterates that the Islamic state “implements Shari’ah upon all of those who carry the Islamic citizenship whether they are Muslims or non-Muslims…”

Of course, Islamists view this as a great aspiration, otherwise they wouldn’t believe in it. The article extols the fairness of Sharia-based governance. The “basic needs” of all Muslims and non-Muslims are guaranteed, income is redistributed and health care and education are free. Non-Muslims can even be appointed to administrative positions and file official complaints if they are abused by authorities, at least in a way that isn’t consistent with Sharia.

The description sounds swell to those that don’t notice the important caveats.

Non-Muslims have religious freedom, as long “as they are within the general system.” Non-Muslims’ attire and diet are regulated according to their own religions, as long as they are “within that which the Shari’ah rules have permitted.”

The HUT article, written by a spokesman in Lebanon, becomes vaguer when discussing the more sensitive issues. It was written in English for a non-Muslim audience, after all.

On the question of Muslims who abandon the faith, it explains, “The rule of the apostate is applied upon those who have apostatized from Islaam if they are apostates.” That means execution, but that isn’t exactly the loveliest word you want to use when promoting your ideology.

HUT then glosses over the other aspects of Sharia law:

“The state implements the rest of the Shari’ah rules and all remaining Islamic Shari’ah matters in regards to the [transactions], punishments, testimonies, ruling and economic systems amongst others upon everyone. The implementation of these matters is the same in regards to Muslims and non-Muslims alike…”

Jihad is required for the Muslim population of this Islamic State, and non-Muslim participation in this jihad is encouraged. HUT says, “Jihad is an obligation upon the Muslims and training is compulsory” for anyone over the age of 15.

Military service is mandatory for Muslims and is optional for non-Muslims. However, non-Muslims must fight “under the banner of the Muslims” and not as a separate unit and cannot participate in a war against Muslim rivals. It’s okay for Muslims to kill other Muslims in war, but it is not okay for non-Muslims to kill Muslims in war.

HUT repeatedly declares its commitment to non-violence but, again, there are important exceptions.

“[W]henever the disbelieving enemies attack an Islamic country it becomes compulsory on its Muslim citizens to repel the enemy. The Hizb ut-Tahrir in that country are part of the Muslims and it is obligatory upon them to fight the enemy and repel them. Wherever there is a Muslim amir who declares jihad, the members of Hizb ut-Tahrir will respond in their capacity as Muslims in the country where the general call to arms was proclaimed,” HUT’s website explains. (http://www.hizb-ut-tahrir.org/index.php/EN/def)

When its conferences in America receive negative attention, HUT is quick to point out that it isn’t trying to transform the country into a Sharia-based state. Like other Islamists, this sweet-sounding proclamation of innocence is conditioned upon ability. Its FAQ section says: (http://hizb-america.org/index.php/aboutus/faqs)

“In non-Muslim countries like the United States, Hizb ut-Tahrir works to cultivate a Muslim community that lives by Islam in thought and deed, whereby adhering to the rules of Islam and preserving a strong Islamic identity. The party does not work in the West to change the system of government, but works to project a positive image of Islam to Western society and engages in dialogue with Western thinkers, policymakers and academics.”

In other words, Sharia is only appropriate for Muslim-majority countries, so a Sharia-based America is a long-term goal but not a present task. HUT uses the U.S. as a launching pad to lead the worldwide Muslim community and achieve a resurrected Caliphate that can overpower the U.S.

“Hizb ut-Tahrir is determined to work within the Ummah in order to implement Islam and achieve its objective by endeavouring to gain the leadership of the Islamic Ummah so that she could accept it as her leader, to implement Islam upon her and proceed with it in her struggle against the Kuffar and in the work towards the return of the Islamic State as it was before, the leading superpower in the world,” its website says. (http://english.hizbuttahrir.org/index.php/about-us)

This isn’t any different from the 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood strategic memo (http://www.clarionproject.org/Muslim_Brotherhood_Explanatory_Memorandum) that called for using the U.S. to establish a base “[I]which adopts Muslims’ causes domestically and globally,” ultimately resulting in “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers.”

The criticism of HUT by Zaid Shakir, a popular Islamist imam in America who preaches that the U.S. Constitution is inferior to Sharia (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/popular-us-imam-replace-constitution-sharia), is illuminating. He tells Muslims not to “vilify” HUT (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/us-muslim-college-founder-against-vilifying-radical-islamic-group). His disagreement with the radical group is limited to its criticism of the Muslim Brotherhood and its overconfidence in the Caliphate to solve all of the Muslim world’s problems. This light treatment of HUT stands in sharp contrast to his treatment of America. (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/imam-zaid-shakir-marine-barracks-bombing-not-terrorism)

On June 21, the founder of HUT in Chicago declared in Jordan (http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/7288.htm), “Let Britain, America, and the entire West go to hell, because the caliphate is coming, Allah willing.” Shockingly, the Argosy University-Chicago uses him as an adjunct professor and he is a Visiting Research Scientist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

On July 12, a HUT spokesperson led a rally on the Temple Mount and declared on videotape (http://www.clarionproject.org/news/imam-temple-mount-let-america-be-destroyed), “Allah is greater! Let America be destroyed!” and “Listen, Obama, we are a nation that does not bow down, and the Caliphate will return!”

An official from the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity, describes (http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/local&id=8699880) HUT as a “very marginalized group, a very fringe group.” Even a HUT spokesman in Illinois admits, “[W]e understand that our ideas are not mainstream.”

That does not mean HUT should be forgotten about. It has a major international network that holds large rallies around the world. It even held a 1,000-strong pro-Caliphate demonstration (http://www.middle-east-online.com/english/?id=60435) in the Ukraine. Its website (http://hizb-america.org/) lists branches in the U.S., Britain, Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Indonesia, Egypt, Pakistan, Palestine, Lebanon, Bangladesh, Malaysia and Morocco.

HUT has expansive resources, it just hasn’t chosen to invest them heavily in America…yet.

Egypt MB Protests Underscore Hypocrisy of America's Islamists
by John Rossomando

July 31, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/...isy-of-america (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4109/egypt-mb-protests-underscore-hypocrisy-of-america)


http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/857_large.jpg

America's leading Muslim Brotherhood legacy groups, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Islamic Circle of America (ICNA), are demanding that the Obama administration take punitive action against Egypt in the wake of last week's shooting of Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators.

At least 81 Muslim Brotherhood demonstrators were killed (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/28/cair-calls-obama-condemn-attacks-against-egypts-mu/) in violent clashes with the Egyptian army. In calling for a stronger U.S. reaction, none of the groups mentioned the Muslim Brotherhood – the party of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

"We urge an end to the silence over the ongoing massacres of peaceful pro-democracy activists in Egypt by forces that receive billions of American taxpayer dollars," CAIR wrote in a press release (http://cair.com/press-center/press-releases/12030-obama-must-condemn-massacre-of-pro-democracy-protesters-in-egypt.html) Saturday.

In a similar press release Monday (http://www.icna.org/icna-condemns-massacre-of-protestors-in-egypt/), ICNA appealed to Americans to contact the White House and the secretaries of State and Defense to demand immediate action against "the undermining of democracy and the suppression of freedom of expression in Egypt."

A more muted response came from ISNA on Wednesday (http://www.isna.net/isna-calls-for-end-of-violence-against-egyptian-protestors.html), calling for an end to the bloodshed regardless of "[w]hether one agrees or disagrees with those calling for the reinstatement of an elected president..."

However, CAIR, ICNA and ISNA failed to express similar concern when Morsi's regime engaged in its own violence and repression against dissidents.

All three groups have Muslim Brotherhood connections to the Brotherhood. ISNA (http://www.investigativeproject.org/730/new-disclosures-tighten-isna-muslim-brotherhood-bonds) was created by (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/439.pdf#page=4) Muslim Brotherhood members in the United States. CAIR was part of (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/717.pdf#page=6) a Brotherhood network of Hamas-support groups called the "Palestine Committee." And ICNA's founders had ties to the Pakistani-based Jamaat-e-Islami, the Indian subcontinent's equivalent of the Muslim Brotherhood.

These American Muslim Brotherhood-aligned groups looked the other way while Muslim Brotherhood gangs beat up (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57557209/egypt-president-morsis-supporters-clash-with-opposition-protesters-in-cairo/) anti-Morsi protesters last December following Morsi's decree assuming emergency powers and Islamists attacked Coptic Christianity's holiest cathedral (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/coptic-christians-under-siege-as-mob-attacks-cairo-cathedral-8563600.html) in April.

They similarly had no complaints when media reports showed that many in Egypt's Coptic Christian minority was barred from voting (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/editorials/hope-of-arab-spring-remains/story-e6frg71x-1226542721158) in December's constitutional referendum by Brotherhood activists. Silence was also the rule when the Egyptian National Council for Human Rights (ENCHR) found 1,137 examples of voting irregularities (http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContentPrint/1/0/61268/Egypt/0/Egypts-National-Council-on-Human-Rights-demands-ba.aspx) in Egypt's constitutional referendum.

"The new constitution will guide all Egyptian institutions and it should set out the vision for the new Egypt, one based on human rights and the rule of law: a document which is the ultimate guarantor against abuse. The constitution must guarantee the rights of all Egyptians, not just the majority," wrote Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Amnesty International's deputy director for the Middle East and North Africa, regarding Egypt's draft constitution (http://www.amnesty.org/en/news/egypt-s-new-constitution-limits-fundamental-freedoms-and-ignores-rights-women-2012-11-30) in November. "But the approved draft comes nowhere near this. Provisions that purport to protect rights mask new restrictions, including on criticism of religion."

She also noted that the constitution "blocks the path to equality between men and women."

Concerns about the dictatorial, totalitarian tendencies of their Egyptian ideological allies were completely ignored by those who now are protesting loudly about the supposed end of democracy in Egypt.

The groups also had nothing to say when the Morsi regime shut down an inquiry (http://www.theaustralian.com.au/opinion/editorials/hope-of-arab-spring-remains/story-e6frg71x-1226542721158) into the Egyptian army's massacre of 30 Coptic Christians who were peacefully protesting in Cairo's Maspero district in October 2011.

When CAIR officials did comment during Morsi's tenure, they defended (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3837/cair-targets-morsi-brotherhood-critics) his actions and questioned opponents' motives.

"Why is the opposition & Mubarak remnants afraid of a [constitutional] referendum? Don't they trust the ppl of Egypt?" CAIR-LA Executive Director Hussam Ayloush wrote (https://twitter.com/HussamA/status/276409973410500609) in a Twitter post last December.

They took a similar stand (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4068/american-islamists-rally-behind-mb-amid-egypt) last month as millions of Egyptians took to the streets demanding Morsi leave office.

Neither Ayloush nor CAIR had anything to say about reports in the Egyptian press that anti-Morsi protesters were rounded up by Muslim Brotherhood militants and tortured (http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2012/al-monitor/morsi-unsustainable-autocracy.html) at the presidential palace the next day.

They said nothing when comedian Bassem Youssef, also known as "Egypt's Jon Stewart," was arrested (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3965/comedian-arrested-in-latest-egyptian-crackdown-on) for "insulting Islam" and insulting Morsi in April.

The mass uprising (http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5ieTc_avmvfRH0r8OrMOgbYTXzPFA?docId=CNG.bf410 fd2b50b272b32ae2b68b217fcea.441) against Morsi was triggered by a widespread belief that he ignored the country's daily needs and was more interested in monopolizing power for the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamists. None of the U.S.-based groups acknowledges that context.

"It is of no surprise to us to see that CAIR is twisting facts and taken up the cause of terrorists inside Egypt," said Michael Meunier, president of Egypt's Al-Haya Party and a leader in the secular opposition to the Muslim Brotherhood. "Why was CAIR silent on the attacks by the Muslim Brotherhood on pro democracy protestors outside of the Presidential palace in July that lead to the killing of 9?"Or where was CAIR when the cathedral was attacked by the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR should condemn the Muslim Brotherhood leadership for pushing the poorest of their supporters to attack the army and face death in order to gain more leverage for negotiate for safe exit for the corrupt leadership."

CAIR, ISNA and ICNA blanch when critics connect them to the Muslim Brotherhood. But their actions make it clear that loyalty to their Islamist ideology and to their Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood compatriots comes ahead of an even-handed approach to human rights.

Palestinian Activist’s Shock Rant at Toronto Al-Quds Day Rally: Give Israel’s Jews 2 Minute Warning, then Shoot Them

By Sharona Schwartz (http://www.theblaze.com/author/sharonachwartz/)


http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/08/06/palestinian-activists-shock-rant-at-toronto-al-quds-day-rally-give-israels-jews-2-minute-warning-then-shoot-them/


If Israeli Jews do not leave Jerusalem, they should be shot, says a Palestinian community leader speaking at Toronto’s annual Al-Quds Day rally. He added, however, that they should be given a two-minute warning before being shot.

“We say get out or you are dead. We give them two minutes and then we start shooting and that’s the only way they will understand,” said the speaker, who the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (http://www.jta.org/2013/08/05/news-opinion/world/palestinian-leader-in-canada-shoot-israeli-jews-if-they-dont-leave-jerusalem) identified as Former President of Palestine House in Toronto, Elias Hazineh.

Al-Quds Day speaker in Toronto: “We give them two minutes and then we start shooting…” (Screenshot: YouTube)

In the Saturday event that was captured on video, one hears audience members shouting, “That’s right!”

“We have to give them an ultimatum. You have to leave Jerusalem. You have to leave Palestine, and the people of Palestine who have been waiting in refugee camps in Lebanon, in Syria, in Egypt and in Jordan must have their right to return to their homes,” Hazineh said.

He quoted from the Koran, which according to Israel National News (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/170618#.UgDgY21_joR) in English is translated as: “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and steeds of war.”

“That’s the only thing that they’ll understand!” the speaker added.

According to an explanation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB57xrpe-yQ) posted on YouTube, the verse addresses the preparation for jihad against the “infidels.”

Promoting a theme commonly cited among anti-Israel activists suggesting Israel usurped Palestinian land, Hazineh said, “I want to remind you of how police work. When somebody tries to rob a bank the police gets in, they don’t negotiate and we’ve been negotiating with them for 65 years.”

The Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports that Al-Quds Day is marked every year in Toronto. A global Al-Quds Day was established by the late Iranian leader Ayatollah Khomeini as a vehicle to push for “liberation” of Jerusalem, or Al-Quds in Arabic.

Demonstrators waved Iranian, Syrian and Hezbollah flags, as well as photos of Ayatollah Khomeini, according to Israel National News, which describes the participants as “a mixture of around 300 Shi’a Islamists, radical leftists, and a small group of Neturei Karta activists, who were apparently unfazed by the event taking place on Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath).” Neturei Karta is an ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect that opposes the existence of Israel as a Jewish state.

This year, the Ontario Legislature denied a permit to the group to hold the rally on its grounds, citing “public safety.” Additionally, Israel National News reports that Sunni Muslims boycotted the event over anger at the continued hostilities involving Syrian President Bashar Assad, a close Iranian ally.

JTA reports, “Last year, the federal government cut funding to Palestine House, which had offered newcomer settlement and language instruction services, because of what Ottawa called the cultural center’s ‘pattern of support for extremism.’”

Hamas-linked CAIR leader warns Muslims to stay away from Robert Spencer debates with Muslim leaders; Muslim site says Muslim debater will lose

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/08/hamas-linked-cair-leader-warns-muslims-to-stay-away-from-robert-spencer-debates-with-muslim-leaders-.html


The Detroit News' guidelines for comments says "The News will not condone personal attacks." Except against me, that is. This piece contains the usual distortions and smears, but it is still interesting for the comments from Hamas-linked CAIR's Dawud Walid: "Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations – Michigan, said he supported Spencer’s free speech rights but urged Muslims to avoid the event, saying the man’s views could provoke 'animosity and enmity.' 'That’s not what we should be embracing coming out of Ramadan.'"

Now, Dawud Walid would be among the first to claim that what I say about Islam is false. So here I am going up against two Muslim spokesmen in debate, and he tells Muslims to stay away. Why? Wouldn't he and other Detroit-area Muslims want to watch the spectacle of a couple of righteous Muslims shining the light of truth upon my manifest falsehoods?

In a similar vein, a Muslim site (granted, one that has never been known for its truth or honesty) brands one of the Muslim spokesmen I am set to debate tomorrow, Shadid Lewis, a "Useful Idiot" and laments: "He will certainly be in over his head, and this 'featured debate' will simply be used as an opportunity to humiliate the American Muslim community. Shadid Lewis may mean well, but participating in this very public event without the tools to deal with someone like Robert Spencer is at the very least unwise." In other words, Lewis is going to lose, and he shouldn't have agreed to the debate in the first place.

How ironic! On the one hand, these Muslim leaders claim that everything I say about Islam and jihad is false. But then they tell Muslims not to come to an event where I could be refuted and exposed as a purveyor of falsehood, and warn in advance that the Muslim debating me is going to lose. Don't they have confidence in their own claims? Don't they think I can be easily refuted?

"Controversial speaker planned at symposium on Islam in Ypsilanti," by Mark Hicks for The Detroit News (http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20130807/METRO08/308070130#ixzz2bRji7GtY), August 7:
The Ann Arbor-based Ave Maria Radio plans to hold the “Is Islam a Religion of Peace?” symposium from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Eastern Michigan University’s Student Center, 900 Oakwood, Ypsilanti.

Featured debaters include Robert Spencer, the controversial director of the Jihad Watch website.

His writing, which has been called anti-Muslim, was quoted in a manifesto by the man accused of the Norway killing spree in 2011, the New York Times and the Anti-Defamation League reported. The British government this year banned Spencer from entering, according to BBC News, and a Southern Poverty Law Center report has listed him as among an “Anti-Muslim Inner Circle.”
Here again, as is typical of mainstream media coverage, nothing positive about me is ever stated. Nothing about my training the FBI, U.S. military, and intelligence community about Islam and jihad. No comments from anyone in my defense. Just Norway again -- with the implication that I call for killing, which I do not, and no mention of the fact that the killer quoted me along with many, many other people, and that he called for collaboration with jihad groups, showing that he and I have nothing in common ideologically. Then comes the British ban, with no mention of the fact that the British government banned me from entering for fear that Muslims would become violent if I entered -- in other words, because they were kowtowing to violent intimidation. And "anti-Muslim" again -- which, again, is like calling a foe of the Nazis "anti-German."
Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations – Michigan, said he supported Spencer’s free speech rights but urged Muslims to avoid the event, saying the man’s views could provoke “animosity and enmity.” “That’s not what we should be embracing coming out of Ramadan,” Walid said, referring to the holy month for Muslims.

In a statement Wednesday, Al Kresta, president and CEO of Ave Maria Communications, said the event is “a public debate, not a one-sided propaganda fest.”

“Those attending will better understand each side and will be less willing to hastily prejudge one side or the other,” he said.

Other speakers expected at the event include Shadid Lewis, a regional director of the Muslim Debate Initiative, and Richard Thompson, chief counsel for the Thomas More Law Center, organizers said. A Mass with Diocese of Lansing Bishop Earl Boyea is scheduled to follow.

Jihad group releases video to recruit Muslims in Minnesota for jihad in Somalia


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/08/jihad-group-releases-video-to-recruit-muslims-in-minnesota-for-jihad-in-somalia.html


“This is the real Disneyland. You need to come here and join us!”

"FBI: Al-Shabaab Released Video To Recruit Minn. Men For Jihad," by Bill Hudson for CBS Minnesota (http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2013/08/08/fbi-al-shabaab-released-violent-video-to-recruit-minn-men-for-jihad/), August 8
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s well documented that foreign terror groups have been working to bring in new recruits. In fact, more than two-dozen young Somali-Americans from the Twin Cities have already been lured to training camps overseas, mostly in Somalia.

Now, there’s growing concern over a propaganda video just released that’s trying to attract more young men to do the same.

The FBI believes Al-Shabaab is responsible for producing and releasing a 40-minute video that follows three Twin Cities men on the path to martyrdom.

For the past seven years, federal agents have been investigating and prosecuting Minnesota’s so-called “terror pipeline.”

With the country’s largest population of Somali-Americans, the Twin Cities has been fighting the recruitment of young men into Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda training camps overseas. Once trained, they engage in Jihad against the ruling factions in war-torn Somalia.

“It is troubling, because it uses the medium of video to romanticize what it is to go to Somalia and fight,” said the FBI’s Kyle Loven. “And it’s appealing, unfortunately, to some young men here in Minneapolis.”

On Tuesday, Al-Shabaab sent out a Tweet saying it would document its Minnesota Martyrs.

“I was surprised when I saw the ,” said local Somali journalist, Wiil Waal.

But after seeing the propaganda video, Waal isn’t so sure that Al-Shabaab is responsible. He says it appears too highly produced to have come from Somalia. Waal suspects others may have had a hand it the video.

Early Thursday morning, a video titled “Minnesota’s Martyrs: The Path to Paradise” hit the internet.

The 40-minute video follows three young men — Dahir Gure, Muhammad Al Amriki and Mohamud Hassan — they leave the Twin Cities to join the training camps in Somalia. Hassan was an engineering student at the University of Minnesota. Amriki was a graduate of Roosevelt High School.

From their initial reasons to interviews on the battlefield, the men each pause to record their appeals for others back in Minnesota to join Jihad.

In the video, Gure is heard saying, “This is the real Disneyland. You need to come here and join us!”

But the video is both violent and extremely graphic: it follows each man to his death or “shakada.”
Shahada, that is.
Local Somali leader Abdirizak Bihi lost his nephew, Omar Farah, to the Al-Shabaab recruitment and is outspoken critic and community activist. He works to deter other Somali boys and young men from falling prey to group’s violent mission.

“We and Al-Shabaab have one thing in common: we are competing for the hearts and minds of the young people,” Bihi said.

He added that his challenge remains one of getting community support and financial help for a cause that many Minnesotans clearly don’t understand — or see as a priority.

“So long as we continue to do what we are doing and get support and work together, I think these videos will not have an impact,” Bihi said.

Loven said the government can’t block the video on the internet out of First Amendment concerns.

Although the video appeared twice on YouTube, it lasted only briefly. The website blocked it from further viewing citing its violent content.

U.S. Islamist Group Alleges that ‘Discrimination Is American Way’
Christians and Jews, meanwhile, are inferior “dhimmis.”
by Ryan Mauro (http://frontpagemag.com/author/ryan-mauro/)

http://frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/picture-9-363x350.png


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/ryan-mauro/u-s-islamist-group-discrimination-is-american-way/


An interfaith dinner (http://www.fredericknewspost.com/your_life/life_news_collection/religion/article_edf6bb74-e03a-57f6-81b7-220ef6b29049.html) was held on July 27 at the Islamic Society of Frederick in Maryland, featuring local officials and Christian clergy. One of the speakers, a former leader of the “moderate” Islamic Circle of North America, explained its purpose: “Discrimination is part of the American way,” he explained, and “The only way to control that is to make alliances.”

The Islamic Circle of North America’s parent group is a Pakistani Islamist party named Jamaat-e-Islami. A Bangladeshi court just barred Jamaat-e-Islami from elections (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/icnas-parent-organization-outlawed-bagladesh) because of its opposition to the country’s secular governance. One of the former Secretary-Generals of ICNA, Ashrafuzzaman Khan, is on trial in absentia in Bangladesh for alleged war crimes he committed as a member of Jamaat-e-Islami’s student wing. The Investigative Project on Terrorism discovered (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4098/bangladesh-war-crimes-trial-proceeds-without-icna) that Khan remains on the board of ICNA’s New York chapter.

ICNA is mentioned repeatedly in a 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memorandum (http://www.clarionproject.org/Muslim_Brotherhood_Explanatory_Memorandum). The author refers to meetings between Muslim Brotherhood and ICNA officials about a planned “merger” and the New York-based group is listed as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”

The memo’s stated objective of waging a “kind of grand jihad…in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within” is often mentioned in articles about the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, but less mentioned are the methods to achieve that.

The memo states the “sabotaging” of Western civilization will happen “by their [non-Muslim] hands and the hands of the believers [Muslims].” The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood apparatus that ICNA belongs to is told to “possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions,’ the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’” You can almost hear the sarcasm in the author’s voice as he puts quotation marks around those friendly terms.

The President of ICNA, Zahid Bukhari, spoke at the event. He’s a known fan (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2647/islamists-flock-to-eulogize-anti-semitic-turkish) of former Turkish Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan, who he praises as having been a “visionary and brilliant leader of Turkey’s Islamist movement.”

Bukhari told the audience, “Discrimination is a part of the American way.” It is implied that the U.S. is inherently racist and oppressive towards minorities, with Muslims being only the latest victims. He explained, “The only way to control that is to make alliances.”

To put it another way using the secret text of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, the answer lies in “possess[ing] a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions,’ the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of cooperation.’”

True, 1991 was over 20 years ago, but the Islamist ideology does not naturally decrease with age. Case in point: ICNA’s official Member’s Hand Book of 2010 (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2373/hand-book-shows-icna-true-goals) for its Sisters’ Wing. It lays out a five-tiered strategy to assemble “the united Muslim Ummah [community] in a united Islamic state, governed by an elected khalifah in accordance with the laws of shari’ah.”

The handbook also states that ICNA is part of an international “Islamic Movement” that is an “organized and collective effort waged to establish Al-Islam in its complete form in all aspects of life.” The term “Islamic Movement” is used by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood to describe its campaign in its 1991 memo.

ICNA’s annual conferences are jointly held with the Muslim American Society, described by federal prosecutors in 2008 as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” This is confirmed (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3486/under-oath-alamoudi-ties-mas-to-brotherhood) by a convicted terrorist and former senior member of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. These conferences are stocked with Islamist speakers who subtlety push the Islamist doctrine of “gradualism.” (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/gradualism-islamist-strategy-victory)

In 2002, one speaker at ICNA’s convention said (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/watchdog/chi-0409190261sep19,0,3008717.story), “We may all feel emotionally attached to the goal of an Islamic state [in America]” but “We mustn’t cross hurdles we can’t jump yet.”

In 2011, radical Imam Siraj Wahhaj advised ICNA’s audience: “The trap we fall into is having a premature discussion about Sharia when we are not there yet,” as reported by the Clarion Project (http://www.clarionproject.org/).

ICNA held its convention this year over Memorial Day Weekend. Imam Zaid Shakir’s message to 32,000 Muslims, while you honored the fallen U.S. servicemen, was that Sharia Law is superior to the U.S. (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/popular-us-imam-replace-constitution-sharia)Constitution because it isn’t based on equal citizenship for Muslims and non-Muslims. He actually said, “If Islam is the basis, the kafir won’t be equal with the Muslim. The Christian or the Jew will be a dhimmi. They won’t be equal with the Muslim.”

Frederick Mayor Randy McClement, other local officials and Catholic, Evangelical and Episcopal clergy were all in attendance. The messages they heard weren’t the ones in ICNA’s literature and events. It was tailored for the audience. After all, who can oppose a joint fight against discrimination?

In its latest fundraising letter (http://www.icna.org/eid-mubarak-message-from-icna-president/), ICNA’s President says funds are needed to “counter the seeds of hate and bigotry being sown around us.” It urges prayers for “all those facing Islamophobia around the world.” The theme of Muslims under siege works because it automatically sets up ICNA as the victim and its critics as aggressors.

This rhetorical setup is used against ICNA’s foreign adversaries, as well as its domestic. Even though the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown in Egypt at the request of millions of Egyptian Muslims, ICNA is outraged. (http://www.icna.org/icna-condemns-massacre-of-protestors-in-egypt/#more-14788) It is trying to mobilize the Muslim-American community into pressuring the U.S. government to have the Brotherhood reinstated into power.

As ICNA admits, it is part of an international Islamist movement. Its interfaith partners need to recognize it as such.

American al-Qaeda Terrorist Urges Attacks on US Diplomats


http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4419192,00.html


US-born terrorist urges wealthy Muslims to offer rewards to terrorists who kill US diplomats. Meanwhile, some embassies reopen after shutting due to attack alerts

An American al-Qaeda (http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3478471,00.html) terrorist has called for more attacks on Western diplomats in the Arab world, praising the killers of the US ambassador to Libya (http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4413289,00.html) on Sept. 11 last year, a US-based monitoring group said on Sunday.

Western nations shut embassies across the Middle East (http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4410941,00.html) and North Africa early this month, after a warning of a possible terror attack. Many have reopened, and Britian said its Yemen embassy would open on Sunday after being closed for 12 days.

Adam Gadahn, a California-born convert to Islam with a $1 million US price on his head, appealed to wealthy Muslims to offer terrorists rewards to kill ambassadors in the region, citing bounty set for killing the US ambassador to Yemen (http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4414239,00.html), Washington-based SITE monitoring group said.

"These prizes have a great effect in instilling fear in the hearts of our cowardly enemies," Gadahn said in the 39-minute video recording in Arabic posted on websites used by Islamist terrorists, according to SITE.

"They also encourage hesitant individuals to carry out important and great deeds in the path of Allah," he said, in an English transcript on SITE.

The Yemen-based branch of al-Qaeda last year offered 3 kg (106 ounces) of gold for the killing of the US ambassador in Sanaa or 5 million rials ($23,350) for an American soldier in the impoverished Arab state.

US ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in Libya's Benghazi in 2012 when Islamist gunmen attacked the US consulate during a protest by a mob angry over a film they said insulted the Prophet Mohammad.

Gadahn has called for attacks on US diplomats before. In August 2007, he said al-Qaeda would target diplomats and embassies in retaliation for US-led military action in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The FBI has been trying to question Gadahn - believed to be in Pakistan - since 2004 and the US government has offered up to $1 million in cash for information leading to his arrest.

Canadian Woman Opens Up About 460-Day Ordeal With Somali Captors: Forced to Convert to Islam, ‘Starved, Beaten and Sexually Brutalized’

By Sharona Schwartz (http://www.theblaze.com/author/sharonachwartz/)



http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/08/19/canadian-woman-opens-up-about-460-day-ordeal-wth-somali-captures-forced-to-convert-to-islam-starved-beaten-and-sexually-brutalized/


Amanda Lindhout traveled to Somalia hoping to find a story that would launch her career as a television reporter. Four days after arriving in the country with a photographer friend, both were taken hostage by Islamist insurgents (http://online.wsj.com/article/PR-CO-20130502-916371.html). While in captivity, she was “starved, beaten and sexually brutalized” according to her memoir of the 2008 saga set to be released next month.

According to the description of her book, A House in the Sky (http://www.amazon.com/House-Sky-Memoir-Amanda-Lindhout/dp/1451645600/), Lindhout spent fifteen months “of harrowing captivity” after being pulled from the car in which she was traveling by a group of masked men.

http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/amanda-lindhout-getty.jpg (http://www.theblaze.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/amanda-lindhout-getty.jpg)

During her 460-day ordeal, the aspiring reporter converted to Islam in order not to be killed, received “wife lessons” from one of her captors, and made a daring escape attempt with her fellow hostage.

Canadian Press reports (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/story/2013/08/18/calgary-lindhout-book-release-el.html) that Lindhout was trussed up like an animal, tied for days with her hands and feet pulled together tightly behind her back.

In the book, Lindhout who is now 32-years-old concedes she was naive to have traveled to such a dangerous country for the thrill. In an interview last year, she said (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IllmJ-Dj7es) “it was not a wise decision to make” and agrees with criticism she has faced for having traveled there.

Prior to that, she had worked as a cocktail waitress in Calgary, saving her tips for backpacking trips, then later picking up freelance reporting work in other dicey locations, including Afghanistan and Iraq, where she was hired by Iran’s English language Press TV before realizing she was “part of a propaganda machine.”

Then it was off to Somalia with an ex-boyfriend with whom she had worked in the past, Australian photographer Nigel Brennan. “The reasons to do it seemed straightforward. Somalia was a mess. There were stories there — a raging war, an impending famine, religious extremists and a culture that had been largely shut out of sight,” she writes.

“She knew it was dangerous but hoped to find a story that would launch her career,” the Canadian Press wire service reports.

“They had only been in Somalia a few days when they got into a car with a hired fixer, driver and security guards and headed for a camp of displaced people outside the capital city of Mogadishu. On the way, armed men stopped and dragged them from the vehicle,” CP adds.

It turns out the abductors were staking out their hotel, but were really targeting two men on assignment for National Geographic. She says they were surprised when they pulled a woman out of the car. CP writes:
While Lindhout and Brennan were kidnapped together, they had different experiences in captivity. Brennan was kept in a room with windows, furniture and books to read, but Lindhout was holed up in a dark room with rats. It was simple: he was a man; she was a woman.

They both told their captors they wanted to convert to Islam. They recited the Qur’an and prayed five times each day, hoping it would provide them some protection.

Back in Canada, Lindhout’s family feared she was being sexually assaulted, but Canadian officials assured them Muslims were unlikely to do such a thing.
However, one of the kidnappers would routinely sneak into her room and force himself on her.

In early 2009, Lindhout and Brennan tried an escape. They dug bricks and metal bars out of the bathroom using only a nail clipper, allowing them to crawl out and run to a nearby mosque.

Their kidnappers chased them with guns. Nobody offered to help them, except for an older woman.

“She clung to Lindhout’s arms then threw herself onto Lindhout’s body as the men dragged their hostage out of the building. Lindhout says she later heard a gunshot echo from inside the mosque, though she says she never learned the fate of her helper,” CP writes.

Lindhout paid the heavy price the next day. Her captors whom she has described as teenagers placed a sheet over her head in a prayer room, stripped her naked and took turns sexually violating her.

More than a year later, in November 2009, Lindhout and Brennan were told they were being sold to a more violent group. As they were being handed over, Lindhout was so afraid, she clung to the car door and had to be forcefully pulled out.

Turns out, they were being released, as the ransom had been paid.

The physical toll was heavy: broken teeth, aching ribs from being kicked, skin fungus on her face, hair failing out in clumps due to malnutrition.

While at first it appeared the Canadian and Australian governments considered giving into the kidnappers’ demands for a ransom, Lindhout and Brennan’s families eventually gave up on a government solution, hired a private hostage negotiator and paid $600,000 for their release, less than the $3 million ransom initially demanded. The $2,000 per day hostage negotiator’s fee brought the final bill to $1.2 million.

Lindhout reveals that the Canadian and Australian governments offered the abductors $250,000, which Canadian Press explains “was categorized as ‘expense’ money to maintain official policies of not paying ransoms.”
That amount was rejected.

Lindhout writes that though she initially considered killing herself, even putting a rusty razor to her wrist, she survived the ordeal by imagining a “house in the sky” where she could embrace family and friends and eat whatever she wanted.

“She made a promise to herself that, if she were ever freed, she would find a way to honour the woman who tried to save her at the mosque,” CP writes.

In 2010, she founded the non-profit Global Enrichment Foundation (http://www.globalenrichmentfoundation.org/index.html) which supports girls’ and women’s education in Somalia and Kenya.

Detroit News buries inconvenient truths, carries water for Hamas-linked CAIR


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/08/detroit-news-buries-inconvenient-truths-carries-water-for-hamas-linked-cair.html


On August 10 I debated two Muslim spokesmen at a conference in Michigan (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/08/in-debate-with-robert-spencer-muslim-spokesman-shadid-lewis-tries-fails-to-prove-that-islam-is-a-rel.html). The next day, Dawud Walid of the Michigan chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations published a piece in the Detroit News entitled "Freedom of speech does not mean accepting the voices of incivility," containing the usual defamatory charges, claiming " that I purvey "hate speech" (without a single example, of course) and saying I shouldn't have been allowed to participate in the debates (which shows you who he thinks won them).

Immediately I submitted a rebuttal piece to the Detroit News, and I received this response from Henry Payne, one of the paper's editors: "Robert - Henry Payne here, Dawud's editor at the Detroit News Politics blog. I encourage you to take advantage of the Comments section immediately after Dawud's piece published at Detroit News.com. Thanks."

To that I responded: "The comments section? Are you telling me you won't give me op-ed space to rebut his smears? By what standard of journalistic fairness do you justify that?"

That got a response from James David Dickson, Op-Ed editor of The Detroit News:
Robert: Dawud's piece didn't appear in the paper, but what we can do is offer you a 350-word rebuttal that we will run in print and online.

Send that to me and we'll run it next week.
Thanks,
JD
So thinking that the Op-ed editor of the paper was offering me space for a 350-word op-ed, I chopped down my rebuttal to that size and resubmitted it. And today it ran...as a letter to the editor. You'll note that his email to me said nothing about the letters section, which is far less well-traveled than the op-eds and blogs of any paper. It was the old bait-and-switch.

This is, obviously, deliberate, as the Detroit News, like all other papers, tries to manipulate its readers' opinions by what they choose to feature, what they choose to bury, and what they choose to ignore altogether. In featuring Walid's piece and not giving me remotely equivalent space to rebut, their bias is naked and open.

Please write, politely and calmly, to James David Dickson, Op-ed editor of the Detroit News (jdickson@detroitnews.com). Let him know what you think of their featuring the writings of an operative of a group that has been declared by the Justice Department to have multiple links to Hamas, a jihad terror group. Ask him why they allowed him space to defame me with half-truths, distortions, and lies, for the crime of defending the freedom of speech and equality of rights for all before the law, and then denied me equivalent space to respond -- while being deceptive about what exactly they were offering me.

This is not about me as an individual being treated unfairly by a minor newspaper in a dying city. It happens not just to me but to everyone trying to resist jihad violence and Islamic supremacism. It is, in microcosm, what happens in the mainstream media every day: increasingly mainstream publications are essentially public relations arms for groups like Hamas-linked CAIR and other Leftists and Islamic supremacists, while giving voices of freedom short shrift. If we care about the freedom of speech, which is the foundation of any free society, and the ability to counter the ever-more rigorously enforced ideological lockstep in which we are being forced to march, we must not let this kind of thing stand.

Meanwhile, here is my truncated rebuttal piece, buried in the Letters section of today's Detroit News. My original title, matching Walid's, was "Freedom of speech means airing inconvenient truths." They have shortened it into incoherence. Note also that what I sent them contained numerous links to support my assertions about CAIR; they did not include them, but were careful to include a link to Walid's piece.
Airing inconvenient truths Re: Dawud Walid’s August 13 blog post, “Freedom of speech does not mean accepting voices of incivility”: Earlier this month, at Eastern Michigan University, I debated two Muslim spokesmen. Dawud Walid of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was so threatened by my presence that he wrote on The Detroit News’ Politics Blog, criticizing event organizers for giving me a “dignified platform.”

Why is CAIR so afraid that I might be heard?

Walid accuses me of fomenting “ethnic and religious intolerance.” But he doesn’t offer a single example of my supposed “bigotry” and “hate speech.” He doesn’t because he can’t: I don’t engage in any “hate speech” or “ethnic and religious intolerance.” Actually, I speak and act in defense of the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience and the principle of equality of rights of all people before the law.

I’ve trained the FBI, U.S. military groups, and intelligence agencies, explicating how Islamic jihadists use texts of Islam to justify violence. Since Walid professes to oppose the understanding of Islam advanced by those jihadists, he shouldn’t object to my doing that.

But he does. A clue as to why comes from his affiliation with CAIR. CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s California chapter distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI. CAIR has opposed virtually every anti-terror measure that has ever been implemented.

CAIR mounts campaigns of defamation against anyone who speaks out against jihad terror, hurling spurious charges of “hate” and “bigotry” to intimidate Americans into thinking that there’s something wrong with resisting jihad violence.

That’s at the heart of their campaign against me.

The ugly result of Walid’s smear campaign will be to render Americans mute and defenseless against the advancing jihad. That’s an outcome all free people should reject.

U.S. seeks 15 years prison for Florida Muslim cleric convicted of sending tens of thousands of dollars to Taliban


http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/khan-722.jpg

http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/us-seeks-15-years-fla-imam-taliban-case-20025074

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/08/us-seeks-15-years-prison-for-florida-muslim-cleric-convicted-of-sending-tens-of-thousands-of-dollars.html

He says he only sent the money for peaceful purposes, but his funding those freed up money for the Taliban's other activities, including strikes at U.S. targets.

"US Seeks 15 Years for Fla. Imam in Taliban Case," by Curt Anderson for the Associated Press (http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/us-seeks-15-years-fla-imam-taliban-case-20025074), August 21:
An elderly Muslim cleric convicted of sending tens of thousands of dollars to finance the Pakistani Taliban terror organization should spend at least 15 years in prison, federal prosecutors recommended Wednesday.

Hafiz Khan, 78, could get as much as 60 years behind bars when he is sentenced Friday because each of the four terrorism supported-related convictions carry maximum 15-year sentences. Assistant U.S. Attorney John Shipley said in court papers that combining all four potential sentences into one would be sufficient punishment.

Sentencing is scheduled before U.S. District Judge Robert Scola.

Shipley said hundreds of FBI recordings of Khan on the telephone and speaking in person with an informant show he supported the Taliban's attacks on Pakistani and U.S. targets and knew his money was going to promote violence. Some calls showed Khan praising attacks such as a deadly 2009 bombing at a CIA base in Khost, Afghanistan, and the failed 2010 attempt to detonate a bomb in New York's Times Square.

"We are not contending that Khan's misconduct tops the scale of terrorism offenses," Shipley said. "But his sending money to militants in Pakistan helped the Taliban put Pakistani and American lives in jeopardy and fostered violence, not peace."
Khan's attorney, Khurrum Wahid, filed separate papers Wednesday asking for a more lenient but unspecified sentence, pointing to Khan's advanced age and medical problems. He also cited Khan's testimony in his own defense that he intended the roughly $50,000 he sent over a three-year period to be used for family, friends and charity in his Pakistan homeland. Before his 2011 arrest the imam at a Miami mosque, Khan also founded a religious school, or madrassa, in Pakistan's Swat Valley.

"Mr. Khan answered the pleas and arranged to send funds to whoever needed it," Wahid said. "If someone was in need, he would do what he could."

The madrassa was closed for a time by Pakistan's government as a suspected hideout for Taliban fighters, though it later reopened. Shipley also noted trial testimony indicated it was used to identify young fighters who would later join Taliban extremists in both Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Khan also testified during his trial that he falsely claimed to harbor extremist views in hopes of obtaining $1 million from a man who was actually an FBI informant. Shipley said that testimony was perjury and that those lies argue against giving Khan a lenient sentence.

"Khan was very clear in conversations with his own family and with the (informant) that he was prepared to lie to further his cause," Shipley said....
Gee, I wonder where he got that idea (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/03/counterterrorism-experts-starting-to-awaken-to-the-reality-of-taqiyya.html)?

Canadian Muslim cleric: Stoning is good for your soul


http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/canada/archives/2013/08/20130828-084745.html

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/08/canadian-muslim-cleric-stoning-is-good-for-your-soul.html


Maybe. But for your body, not so much. Note also the information in this article that shows that far more Muslims are members of that Tiny Minority of Extremists than the mainstream media generally leads us to believe.

"Stoning is good for your soul, says Canadian cleric," by Simon Kent for the QMI Agency (http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/canada/archives/2013/08/20130828-084745.html), August 28 (thanks to Pamela Geller (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/08/stoning-is-good-for-your-soul-says-canadian-cleric.html)):



Click to view video>http://bcove.me/db9li334

TORONTO — Death to sinners. That is the religious message brought to you by YouTube. Homosexuals and adulterers, you’d better start running because it’s directed at you.

Don’t believe me? Well, plenty of people watched Wednesday as Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak put his death by stoning show on the digital high road courtesy of the Internet.

A YouTube video featuring an insightful look at the ideas of the Brampton, Ont., preacher who stated that “sinners,” as defined by his own interpretation of Islamic law, can benefit from a jolly good stoning was running all day until it was belatedly taken down.

The sheikh explained that a Muslim who is sentenced to death by stoning under Sharia law actually benefits from this gruesome punishment as her soul is being purified even as the stones rain down on her sinful head.

It would possibly be funny if it were in a Monty Python movie. Almost, but not quite. There is no joke to be had in a medieval form of punishment like stoning. Nor should it be condoned.

Alas, it might be more widely spread than most Canadians would believe.

In 2010 the Pew Research Centre in Washington published the results of an extensive poll of Middle East countries and tapped into their views of modern life.

According to the results, at least three-quarters of Muslims in Egypt and Pakistan say they would favour making each of the following the law in their countries: stoning people who commit adultery, whippings and cutting off of hands for crimes like theft and robbery and the death penalty for those who leave the Muslim religion.

Majorities of Muslims in Jordan and Nigeria also favor these harsh punishments. Thankfully none will be proscribed in Canada because we are a free, open and tolerant society that will never become a theocracy where common law is subjugated to religious dogma.

Being free, open and tolerant also means that people such as Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak can take advantage of free speech to spread their own version of moral purification.

This from a man who serves as both president of the Islamic Forum of Canada and vice-president of the Islamic Council of Imams of Canada. Attempts were made to contact the sheikh for comment for this article but they were unsuccessful.

Still, that doesn’t mean we have to withhold our own opinion.

We can surely ask just why a clearly inflammatory piece of speech like that delivered by the sheikh is hosted on the popular video-sharing site. It’s got company, too.

It doesn’t take long to find plenty of disgusting material on YouTube that makes it less of a social site than a sewer of hate and bloody gore, most of it carried out in the sacred name of religion.

There are endless images of gruesome hangings, stonings, executions, assaults, assassinations, shootings and so-called honour killings.

It says a lot about the warped values of YouTube that it will vigorously protect the copyright of Saturday Night Live when an illegal video of a skit from the show is posted but let vivid examples of man’s inhumanity to man be run in all its glory.

A quick YouTube search reveals an alarming number of terrorist training videos from al-Qaida side by side with executions by Al-Shabaab and hate-filled sermons from across the globe.

This is despite YouTube’s insufferably smug claims that it has “community guidelines” that prohibit “dangerous or illegal activities such as bomb-making, hate speech and incitement to commit violent acts” and only accepts “religious” films.

If you believe that, then you’ll also believe that a video snuff movie features people sneezing.

Egypt Charges CAIR-linked Imam With Inciting Violence

by John Rossomando

Sep 3, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4148/egypt-charges-cair-linked-imam-with-inciting


A radical cleric previously defended by the Council on American Islamic Relations (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/119.pdf) (CAIR) is among 14 people charged by Egyptian authorities with inciting violence (http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/1/64/80552/Egypt/Politics-/BREAKING-Egypts-ousted-president-Morsi-referred-to.aspx) against protesters opposed to then-President Mohamed Morsi outside the presidential palace last December.

Wagdy Ghoneim is charged (http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/morsy-brotherhood-officials-referred-trial-over-ettehadiya-violence) along with Morsi, Deputy Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Khairat al-Shater, Freedom and Justice Party leader Essam el-Erian and others with encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood activists to murder, assault and torture opponents.

Ghoneim has a long history of incitement of hatred against Christians and Jews. Last December, he threatened Egyptian Copts with destruction if they failed to subordinate themselves to Egypt's Islamists.

According to a Gatestone Institute (http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3518/egypt-cleric-threatens-copts-genocide) report, Ghoneim warned Copts that, "The day Egyptians — and I don't even mean the Muslim Brotherhood or Salafis, regular Egyptians — feel that you are against them, you will be wiped off the face of the earth. I'm warning you now: do not play with fire! I want to remind you that Egypt is a Muslim country.... if you don't like the Muslim Sharia, you have eight countries that have a Cross on their flag [in Europe], so go to them. However, if you want to stay here in Egypt with us, know your place and be respectful."

He expressed joy (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3670/brotherhood-salafists-on-the-march) when the Coptic Pope Shenouda III died in May 2012. "May God have His revenge on him in the fire of hell – he and all who walk his path."

Ghoneim referred to Jews (http://www.investigativeproject.org/567/ghoneim-no-to-the-jews) as the "descendants of apes and pigs" during a CAIR co-sponsored rally at Brooklyn College in May 1998. "…Allah says he who equips a warrior of Jihad is like the one [who] makes Jihad himself," Ghoneim said. He also led the audience in a song with the lyrics: "No to the Jews, descendants of the apes."

He also has sanctioned suicide bombings (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/116.pdf), saying that those who blew themselves up fighting Israel were not committing suicide but rather were engaging in jihad.

After he was arrested by U.S. customs authorities in November 2004 on immigration violations, CAIR-Los Angeles Executive Director Hussam Ayloush defended him (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/116.pdf#page=28), saying: "The whole Muslim community today is under a microscope of scrutiny. Committing a mistake that would invite a slap on the wrist for anyone else could lead to prison or deportation for a Muslim."

Ghoneim agreed to leave the United States voluntarily a month later and was subsequently denied entry into Switzerland in 2005.

In February 2010, Ghoneim appeared on Hamas's al-Aqsa TV (http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/4018.htm) and prayed that Muslims should be "terrorists, if terror means jihad."

Muslim from California goes to Syria to wage jihad:
"What America hates, I love"

http://www.breitbart.com/InstaBlog/2013/09/05/Jihadist-From-California-Goes-to-Syria-VIDEO

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/muslim-from-california-goes-to-syria-to-wage-jihad-what-america-hates-i-love.html


If this clown survives his jihad in Syria, will he let back into the U.S.? Almost certainly. After all, we're about to aid his side militarily. But he shouldn't be. He is an avowed enemy of the United States.

Islamic supremacists avowedly and proudly love death. A Muslim child preacher recently taunted (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/11/muslim-child-preacher-oh-zionists-we-love-death-for-the-sake-of-allah-just-as-much-as-you-love-life.html) those he has been taught to hate most: "Oh Zionists, we love death for the sake of Allah, just as much as you love life for the sake of Satan." Jihad mass murderer Mohamed Merah said (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/07/jihad-mass-murderer-mohamed-merah-you-are-up-against-a-man-who-is-not-afraid-of-death.html) that he "loved death more than they loved life." Nigerian jihadist Abubakar Shekau said (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/10/want-to-make-a-muhammad-movie-nigeriam-muslim-leader-says-anybody-plotting-this-will-surely-pay-for.html): "I'm even longing for death, you vagabond."

Ayman al-Zawahiri's wife advised Muslim women (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/06/zawahiris-better-half-i-advise-you-to-raise-your-children-in-the-cult-of-jihad-and-martyrdom-and-to.html): "I advise you to raise your children in the cult of jihad and martyrdom and to instil in them a love for religion and death." And as one jihadist put it (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/02/this-is-adis-we-love-death-you-love-your-life-there-is-no-god-but-allah-and-muhammad-is-his-messenge.html), "We love death. You love your life!" And another: "The Americans love Pepsi-Cola, we love death." That was from Afghan jihadist Maulana Inyadullah (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/1341470/The-Americans-love-Pepsi-Cola-but-we-love-death.html)

Of course, this idea comes from the Qur'an itself: "Say (O Muhammad): O ye who are Jews! If ye claim that ye are favoured of Allah apart from (all) mankind, then long for death if ye are truthful." -- Qur'an 62:6

"Jihadist From California Goes to Syria (VIDEO)," by Kerry Picket for Breitbart (http://www.breitbart.com/InstaBlog/2013/09/05/Jihadist-From-California-Goes-to-Syria-VIDEO), September 5 (thanks to Pamela Geller (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/09/video-jihadist-from-california-goes-to-syria-what-america-loves-i-hate-.html)):
An American from California traveled to Syria to join the jihadist rebels in the civil war fight against the Bashar Assad Syrian regime. He tells the interviewer, "What America hates, I love. What they love I hate. They love Dunya (meaning earthly life). I hate the Dunya." He continues, "They love life. I love death."

The narrator then turns to a Canadian man named Jamal, who is in Syria as well. The narrator claims Jamal is a student from Montreal who plans to never return to Canada.

Secretary of State John Kerry told (http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/09/05/us-syria-crisis-usa-rebels-idUSBRE98405L20130905)the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday that opposition forces, supported by the Obama administration, in Syria are "growing stronger by the day." Kerry stressed (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/09/04/state-department-fires-back-over-putin-claims-kerry-lied-about-syria/#ixzz2e0wrwkCd):
“The opposition has increasingly become more defined by its moderation, more defined by the breadth of its membership and more defined by its adherence to some, you know, democratic process and to an all-inclusive, minority-protecting constitution, which will be broad-based and secular with respect to the future of Syria."
However, Reuters is reporting that numerous intelligence reports contradict Kerry's assertions:
U.S. and allied intelligence sources and private experts on the Syrian conflict suggest that assessment is optimistic.

While the radical Islamists among the rebels may not be numerically superior to more moderate fighters, they say, Islamist groups like the al Qaeda-aligned Nusra Front are better organized, armed and trained.

Eyewitness Places ICNA Official at Bangladesh Mass Killings

by IPT News


• Sep 10, 2013 http://www.investigativeproject.org/4155/eyewitness-places-icna-official-at-bangladesh


A survivor of a 1971 Islamist killing spree in Bangladesh tearfully told a war crimes tribunal (http://www.dhakatribune.com/crime/2013/sep/10/rayerbazar-mass-killing-lone-survivor-recounts-1971-horror) Monday that he saw a man who would go on to lead the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA (http://www.investigativeproject.org/topics/54/the-islamic-circle-of-north-america-icna)) giving orders during the kidnapping, torture and murder of intellectuals.

Delwar Hossain, 70, provided a dramatic eyewitness account against Ashrafuzzaman Khan (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4098/bangladesh-war-crimes-trial-proceeds-without-icna), who remains (http://icnany.org/site2/?page_id=83) on the executive board of ICNA's New York chapter and is a leader of the North American Imams Federation (http://imamsofamerica.weebly.com/contact.html).

Prosecutors allege (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/764.pdf#page=6) that Khan was the "chief executor" of a killing squad loyal to the Pakistani army during the closing days of Bangladesh's war of independence. It targeted intellectuals to rob the newly-liberated nation of leadership. Khan and prominent (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/bangladesh/9204831/Leading-British-Muslim-leader-faces-war-crimes-charges-in-Bangladesh.html) U.K. imam Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin are being tried in absentia. Court-appointed defense attorneys are cross examining witnesses.

Hossain, the 22nd witness against Khan, is considered the only survivor of the attacks. He said that he saw Khan and Mueen-Uddin when he was kidnapped and heard them address each other by name. Later, he heard another captive beg for Khan to spare his as the bound and blindfolded prisoners were stabbed with bayonets.

Khan walked away, Hossain testified.

Hossain was able to free his hands and adjust his blindfold to see what was happening around him. He said he soaked his shirt in another victim's blood in hopes of fooling his captors into believing he already had been tortured. He showed the war crimes tribunal a scar on his head from the beatings he endured that day.

He took off running and made his escape swimming in the nearby river as gunmen fired at him. "I was adamant to be killed by shooting. I did not want to be killed by bayonets," Hossain said.

Hossain identified several other victims he saw at the killing site. Most of the other witnesses against Khan and Mueen-Uddin have been their surviving relatives, who have testified about seeing their loved ones taken away at gunpoint similar to what Hossain described.

"I witnessed the killings from the beginning to the end," Hossain testified. "Ashraf [Khan] and Mueen [Uddin] led the killings."

It is not clear what the United States would do about Khan, a naturalized citizen, if he is convicted. Last week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reportedly offered (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4150/reid-reportedly-pledges-help-repatriating-icna) to assist Bangladesh's government in trying to repatriate Khan.

American Jihadi Reportedly Killed in Somalia

by John Rossomando

• Sep 12, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4159/american-jihadi-reportedly-killed-in-somalia


An American jihadist who once was an operational commander for al-Shabaab – al-Qaida's Somali affiliate – reportedly was killed by his former comrades during an attack on a town southwest of Mogadishu.

Alabama native Omar Hammami had been on the run trying to evade the terrorist group after falling out (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3490/american-jihadist-in-somalia-now-fears-for-safety) with the terror group's leadership.

"There was a gun battle between [Hammami] and his men and other fighters," Maolim Ali, a resident in Bardhere, Somalia told Agence France Presse (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-24060558). British jihadist Osama al-Britani also reportedly died in the attack by al-Shabbab gunmen.

Hammami grew up as a Baptist before converting to Islam and becoming president of the Muslim Students Association (http://www.investigativeproject.org/profile/166) at the University of South Alabama. He became one of the most notorious foreign fighters in Somalia, known as Abu Mansour al-Amriki ["the American"]. He was under indictment (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1357.pdf) in the United States, designated (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3071/shabaab-leader-omar-hammami-designated) as an international terrorist and had a $5 million reward (http://www.rewardsforjustice.net/index.cfm?page=Hammami&language=english) offered by the U.S. State Department for his capture.

Somalia has attracted dozens of Western fighters, including more than 10 Canadians (http://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2011/04/08/somali_canadians_grapple_with_terrorisms_appeal_to _youth.html) and two dozen Americans, mostly (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1764/how-al-shabaab-targets-western-youth) from the Minneapolis area. Several others are known to have died – some at the hands (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1763/jihadist-recruitments-human-toll-one-american) of al-Shabaab and at least in a suicide bombing (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2951/another-somali-american-dies-in-shabaab-attack) by the group.

The American told Voice of America's (VOA) Somalia Service earlier this month that he had renounced his membership in al-Shabaab.

"I'm openly not from Shabaab. I'm openly not from al Qaeda, but I'm definitely a terrorist," Hammami said. (http://www.voanews.com/content/american-alshabab-disavows-militant-group-alqaida/1743983.html)

He reportedly had feared for his life, according to videos he posted online (http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/omar-hammami-american-terrorists-mom-back-home/story?id=16369141). Previous reports of his death (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2760/american-al-shabaab-commander-alive) proved false.

Hammami's father, Shafik, told ABC News that he hoped the latest reports of his son's death were untrue, but if not, then his son "died fighting for his principles, whatever they are."

FBI warns energy companies to be on alert for "potential terrorist activities" at fuel storage plants

Apparently those right-wing extremists are on the prowl. "U.S. oil group says FBI warns fuel storage operators to be on alert," from Reuters (http://www.newsdaily.com/united-states/296e552e3304a7317831ac87a39a054d/us-oil-group-says-fbi-warns-fuel-storage-operators-of-terrorist-activity), September 13:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. officials have warned energy companies to be on the alert for "potential terrorist activities" at fuel storage plants but there were no immediate threats, an oil industry group told members on Friday.

The Petroleum Marketers Association of America told members the Federal Bureau of Investigation "is concerned about terrorists attempting to purchase or steal fuel from a bulk plant to use in a weapon of mass destruction."

The PMAA said it sent members a message on Friday after the FBI handed out the warning at an energy conference last week ahead of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.

The FBI had no immediate comment.

The PMAA message to members said the FBI warned fuel marketers should be on alert for new customers who are not from the area, drivers who are not familiar with truck or vehicle operations, and people who store fuel in unusual locations or containers.

A PMAA official said the FBI wrote the alert last year. "It is not for any recent activity just a list red flags to alert bulk plant operators of suspicious activity," the official said....

Hamas-linked CAIR outraged over Florida official's private Facebook posting noting that Qur'an teaches hate

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/hamas-linked-cair-outraged-over-florida-officials-private-facebook-posting.html


He said that the Qur'an is a book that teaches hate. Does it? Let's see:

2:65 Allah transforms disobedient Jews into apes

“And well you know there were those among you [Jews] that transgressed the Sabbath, and We said to them, ‘Be you apes, miserably slinking!’

2:89 Unbelievers, particularly Jews, are accursed

“When there came to them [Jews] a Book from Allah, confirming what was with them -- and they aforetimes prayed for victory over the unbelievers -- when there came to them that they recognized, they disbelieved in it; and the curse of Allah is on the unbelievers.

2:191-193 Fight and kill unbelievers until “religion is Allah’s,” i.e. Islamic law rules all societies

“And slay them wherever you come upon them, and expel them from where they expelled you; persecution is more grievous than slaying. But fight them not by the Holy Mosque until they should fight you there; then, if they fight you, slay them -- such is the recompense of unbelievers, but if they give over, surely Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate. Fight them, till there is no persecution and the religion is Allah’s; then if they give over, there shall be no enmity save for evildoers.”

3:28 Don’t take unbelievers as friends and allies, unless it is for “fear of them,” i.e. deceptively for protection of oneself or of Islam

“Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends, rather than the believers -- for whoso does that belongs not to Allah in anything -- unless you have a fear of them. Allah warns you that You beware of Him, and unto Allah is the homecoming.”

3:110-112 Muslims are the best of people, Jews have earned Allah’s anger

“You are the best nation ever brought forth to men, bidding to honour, and forbidding dishonour, and believing in Allah. Had the People of the Book believed, it were better for them; some of them are believers, but the most of them are ungodly. They will not harm you, except a little hurt; and if they fight with you, they will turn on you their backs; then they will not be helped. Abasement shall be pitched on them, wherever they are come upon, except they be in a bond of Allah, and a bond of the people; they will be laden with the burden of Allah’s anger, and poverty shall be pitched on them; that, because they disbelieved in Allah’s signs, and slew the Prophets without right; that, for that they acted rebelliously and were transgressors.”

3:151 Allah will cast terror into the unbelievers' hearts

“We will cast into the hearts of the unbelievers terror, for that they have associated with Allah that for which He sent down never authority; their lodging shall be the Fire; evil is the lodging of the evildoers.”

3:181 Jews are bound for hell

“Allah has heard the saying of those who said, ‘Surely Allah is poor, and we are rich.’ We shall write down what they have said, and their slaying the Prophets without right, and We shall say, ‘Taste the chastisement of the burning.’”

4:34 Beat disobedient women

“Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that Allah has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for Allah’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them. If they then obey you, look not for any way against them; Allah is All-high, All-great.”

4:160 Jews do evil, turn people away from Allah

“And for the evildoing of those of Jewry, We have forbidden them certain good things that were permitted to them, and for their barring from Allah’s way many…”

5:33 Crucify or amputate the hands and feet of those who make war against Allah and Muhammad

"This is the recompense of those who fight against Allah and His Messenger, and hasten about the earth, to do corruption there: they shall be slaughtered, or crucified, or their hands and feet shall alternately be struck off; or they shall be banished from the land. That is a degradation for them in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement."

5:41 Jews listen to falsehood and pervert the meaning of their Scriptures

“O Messenger, let them not grieve thee that vie with one another in unbelief, such men as say with their mouths ‘We believe’ but their hearts believe not; and the Jews who listen to falsehood, listen to other folk, who have not come to thee, perverting words from their meanings, saying, ‘If you are given this, then take it; if you are not given it, beware!’ Whomsoever Allah desires to try, thou canst not avail him anything with Allah. Those are they whose hearts Allah desired not to purify; for them is degradation in this world; and in the world to come awaits them a mighty chastisement.”

5:51 Don’t take Jews and Christians as friends and allies

“O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Whoso of you makes them his friends is one of them. Allah guides not the people of the evildoers.”

5:59-60 Jews cursed, made into apes and swine

“Say: ‘People of the Book, do you blame us for any other cause than that we believe in Allah, and what has been sent down to us, and what was sent down before, and that most of you are ungodly?’ Say: ‘Shall I tell you of a recompense with Allah, worse than that? Whomsoever Allah has cursed, and with whom He is wroth, and made some of them apes and swine, and worshippers of idols -- they are worse situated, and have gone further astray from the right way.’”

5:64 Jews accursed

“The Jews have said, ‘Allah’s hand is fettered.’ Fettered are their hands, and they are cursed for what they have said. Nay, but His hands are outspread; He expends how He will. And what has been sent down to thee from thy Lord will surely increase many of them in insolence and unbelief; and We have cast between them enmity and hatred, till the Day of Resurrection. As often as they light a fire for war, Allah will extinguish it. They hasten about the earth, to do corruption there; and Allah loves not the workers of corruption.”

5:72 Christians are unbelievers

“They are unbelievers who say, ‘Allah is the Messiah, Mary’s son.’ For the Messiah said, ‘Children of Israel, serve God, my Lord and your Lord. Verily whoso associates with Allah anything, Allah shall prohibit him entrance to Paradise, and his refuge shall be the Fire; and wrongdoers shall have no helpers.’”

5:82 Jews most hostile to the Muslims

“Thou wilt surely find the most hostile of men to the believers are the Jews and the idolaters; and thou wilt surely find the nearest of them in love to the believers are those who say ‘We are Christians’; that, because some of them are priests and monks, and they wax not proud.”

6:91 Jews deny, conceal divine revelations

“They measured not Allah with His true measure when they said, ‘Allah has not sent down aught on any mortal.’ Say: ‘Who sent down the Book that Moses brought as a light and a guidance to men? You put it into parchments, revealing them, and hiding much; and you were taught that you knew not, you and your fathers.’ Say: ‘Allah.’ Then leave them alone, playing their game of plunging.”

6:146 Jews insolent

“And to those of Jewry We have forbidden every beast with claws; and of oxen and sheep We have forbidden them the fat of them, save what their backs carry, or their entrails, or what is mingled with bone; that We recompensed them for their insolence; surely We speak truly.”

7:166 Jews are apes

“And when they [Jews] turned in disdain from that forbidding We said to them, ‘Be you apes, miserably slinking!’”

8:12 Allah will terrorize unbelievers; Muslims should behead them

“When thy Lord was revealing to the angels, ‘I am with you; so confirm the believers. I shall cast into the unbelievers’ hearts terror; so smite above the necks, and smite every finger of them!’”

8:39 Fight unbelievers until Islam reigns supreme

“Fight them, till there is no persecution and the religion is Allah’s entirely; then if they give over, surely Allah sees the things they do.”

8:60 Make war against enemies of Allah

“Make ready for them whatever force and strings of horses you can, to terrify thereby the enemy of Allah and your enemy, and others besides them that you know not; Allah knows them. And whatsoever you expend in the way of Allah shall be repaid you in full; you will not be wronged.”

9:5 Slay the idolaters

“Then, when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; Allah is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.”

9:28 Idolaters unclean

“O believers, the idolaters are indeed unclean; so let them not come near the Holy Mosque after this year of theirs. If you fear poverty, Allah shall surely enrich you of His bounty, if He will; Allah is All-knowing; All-wise.”

9:29 Fight and subjugate the Jews and Christians

“Fight those who believe not in Allah and the Last Day and do not forbid what Allah and His Messenger have forbidden -- such men as practise not the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book -- until they pay the tribute out of hand and have been humbled.”

9:30 Jews and Christians assailed by Allah

“The Jews say, ‘Ezra is the Son of Allah’; the Christians say, ‘The Messiah is the Son of Allah.’ That is the utterance of their mouths, conforming with the unbelievers before them. Allah assail them! How they are perverted!”

9:31 Jews and Christians have taken their clergy and holy men as lords

“They have taken their rabbis and their monks as lords apart from Allah, and the Messiah, Mary’s son -- and they were commanded to serve but One Allah; there is no god but He; glory be to Him, above that they associate.”

9:73 Be harsh with unbelievers

“O Prophet, struggle with the unbelievers and hypocrites, and be thou harsh with them; their refuge is Gehenna -- an evil homecoming!”

9:111 Paradise guaranteed to those who kill and are killed for Allah

“Allah has bought from the believers their selves and their possessions against the gift of Paradise; they fight in the way of Allah; they kill, and are killed; that is a promise binding upon Allah in the Torah, and the Gospel, and the Koran; and who fulfils his covenant truer than Allah? So rejoice in the bargain you have made with Him; that is the mighty triumph.”

9:123 Fight the unbelievers, be harsh with them

“O believers, fight the unbelievers who are near to you; and let them find in you a harshness; and know that Allah is with the godfearing.”

47:4 Behead and slaughter the unbelievers; take others captive

“When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds; then set them free, either by grace or ransom, till the war lays down its loads. So it shall be; and if Allah had willed, He would have avenged Himself upon them; but that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will not send their works astray.”

48:29 Be merciful to believers, not unbelievers

"Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him are hard against the unbelievers, merciful one to another."

62:6 Jews should long for death

“Say: ‘You of Jewry, if you assert that you are the friends of Allah, apart from other men, then do you long for death, if you speak truly.’”

98:6 Unbelievers are the worst of creatures

“The unbelievers of the People of the Book and the idolaters shall be in the Fire of Gehenna, therein dwelling forever; those are the worst of creatures.”

But as we all know, pointing this out is what is considered the act of hate nowadays, not these passages themselves. And a Hamas-linked Muslim Brotherhood front group like the Council on American-Islamic Relations, out for John Jamason's head, is treated as if it were a respectable civil rights organization, while Jamason is in danger of being fired for telling uncomfortable and unpopular truths.

"Muslim group demands public records after county communications staffer posts anti-Islamic message," by Jennifer Sorentrue for the Palm Beach Post (http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/state-regional-govt-politics/muslim-groups-demands-public-records-after-county-/nZwpQ/), September 13:
One of the state’s leading Muslim groups on Friday asked Palm Beach County officials to turn over all of the social media comments made on county computers by a public affairs employee who posted an anti-Islamic message on his private Facebook page.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida, Inc. emailed a public records request to the county commission asking for communications sent by employee John Jamason from any county computer within the last 30 days. The group requested any social media comments that Jamason received using a county computer within the same time frame.

In addition the group’s attorney, Wilfredo A. Ruiz, asked for all emails that were from or to Jamason’s county email address within the last three days. The group also asked for all emails that Jamason sent or received within the last 60 days that deal with Muslims, Muslim organizations, the Muslim community, Islam, Islamic organizations or Islamic centers.
Ruiz did not return a call for comment Friday.

WPTV-Channel 5 reported Thursday that Jamason posted an anti-Islamic message on his private Facebook page.

“Never forget. There is no such thing as radical Islam. All Islam is radical. There may be Muslims who don’t practice their religion, much like others. The Quran is a book that preaches hate,” the message said, according to WPTV.

Jamason did not return a call for comment Friday.

County Administrator Bob Weisman said the county is reviewing whether to discipline Jamason. An internal review found that the Facebook post was not made from a county computer, Weisman said.

Weisman said that federal laws protect employees who use social media websites like Facebook and Twitter.

“The private rights of employees on social media and for other modes of communication are protected by the U.S. Constitution and relevant law,” Weisman said.

Jamason, a 10-year county employee, is the manager of the media and public information division of the county’s Public Affairs department. His duties include writing and sending out news releases and coordinating public events. He earns $61,825 a year.

Jamason does not serve as an official spokesman for the county, Weisman said.

Jamason, whose father served as West Palm Beach’s police chief in the early 1980s, unsuccessfully tried to unseat then-Palm Beach County Commissioner Karen Marcus in 2008 Republican primary for the District 1 seat.

Before he was hired by the county, Jamason worked as a video editor for WPBF-Channel 25.

Does the Qur’an Teach Hate?
A controversy in Florida illuminates the question that must not be asked.
by Robert Spencer (http://frontpagemag.com/author/robert-spencer/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/robert-...an-teach-hate/ (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/robert-spencer/does-the-quran-teach-hate/)


On September 11, 2013, a public information officer for Palm Beach County, Florida named John Jamason posted a message (http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/news/state-regional-govt-politics/muslim-groups-demands-public-records-after-county-/nZwpQ/) on his personal Facebook page: “Never forget. There is no such thing as radical Islam. All Islam is radical. There may be Muslims who don’t practice their religion, much like others. The Quran is a book that preaches hate.”

The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) immediately complained, and demanded that the county turn over to them everything that Jamason had written from a county computer over the previous month. County Administrator Bob Weisman assured CAIR that Jamason had not written the offending Facebook message from a county computer, and stated that county officials were determining whether or not to discipline him.

Left unexamined in the controversy was whether or not what Jamason said was true. In light of the Qur’an’s teachings about jihad and the subjugation of non-Muslims, he certainly had a case that “there is no such thing as radical Islam” and “all Islam is radical,” for there is no mainstream sect of Islam or school of Islamic jurisprudence that does not teach that the Muslim community must wage war against unbelievers and subjugate them under its rule.

Jamason was also correct that “there may be Muslims who don’t practice their religion, much like others.” Indeed, there are many people who identify themselves as Muslims who have no interest in waging jihad against unbelievers, but would prefer to hold down their jobs and take care of their families in peace in the same way as there are millions of people who identify themselves as believers in other religions who are not particularly concerned with living out every teaching of the religion with which they identify.

But what CAIR was most outraged about was not that, of course, but Jamason’s contention that the Qur’an teaches hate. They did not, however, provide any evidence showing that it doesn’t.
So does it?

The Qur’an teaches that Muslims must fight and kill unbelievers “wherever you overtake them” until “religion is Allah’s,” i.e. Islamic law rules all societies (2:190-193). They must fight unbelievers “until there is no fitnah and [until] the religion, all of it, is for Allah” (8:39). Muslims are to fight unbelievers and “prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allah knows” (8:60).

Allah tells Muhammad to “fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination” (9:73). The followers of Muhammad should imitate him in this: “O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness” (9:123). For “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are forceful against the disbelievers, merciful among themselves” (48:29).

Muslims should not befriend non-Muslims, unless, as we have seen, it is to deceive them to save oneself from danger: “Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah, except when taking precaution against them in prudence” (3:28).

Allah says he will “cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve” (3:151). He tells his prophet: “[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, “I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.”

Among “those who have disbelieved” are the Christians, who have made themselves into disbelievers by worshipping Christ as God: “They have certainly disbelieved who say, ‘Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary’” (5:17; 5:72). In worshipping Christ, they have associated a partner with Allah, thereby becoming polytheists, and “the polytheists are unclean” (9:28). Both Jews and Christians have ascribed a son to Allah, for which Allah should destroy them: “The Jews say, ‘Ezra is the son of Allah’; and the Christians say, ‘The Messiah is the son of Allah.’ That is their statement from their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved [before them]. May Allah destroy them; how are they deluded?” (9:30).

Chief among those are the Jews. The Muslim holy book also contends that Allah transformed disobedient Jews into “apes, despised” (2:65; 7:166), and “apes and pigs” (5:60). It says that they’re accursed for rejecting the Qur’an, which they should have recognized as confirming their own Scriptures: “And when there came to them a Book from Allah confirming that which was with them – although before they used to pray for victory against those who disbelieved – but [then] when there came to them that which they recognized, they disbelieved in it; so the curse of Allah will be upon the disbelievers” (2:89).

The Qur’an says that while Muslims are “the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind,” the People of the Book (primarily Jews and Christians) are mostly “defiantly disobedient” (3:110). The Jews “have been put under humiliation [by Allah] wherever they are overtaken, except for a covenant from Allah and a rope from the Muslims” – that is, except those who have accepted Islam or submitted to Muslim rule. “And they have drawn upon themselves anger from Allah and have been put under destitution. That is because they disbelieved in the verses of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That is because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed” (3:112). They killed the prophets because they disliked their messages: “Whenever there came to them a messenger with what their souls did not desire, a party [of messengers] they denied, and another party they killed” (5:70).

Not only have they disbelieved in revelations from Allah and killed the prophets, but they even dare to mock Allah himself: “And the Jews say, ‘The hand of Allah is chained.’ Chained are their hands, and cursed are they for what they say.” They “strive throughout the land [causing] corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters” (5:64).

Allah gave food laws to the Jews because of their “wrongdoing,” and “for their averting from the way of Allah many [people]” (4:160), and by doing so, “repaid them for their injustice” (6:146). Some Jews are “avid listeners to falsehood” who “distort words beyond their [proper] usages.” These are “the ones for whom Allah does not intend to purify their hearts,” and they will be punished not just in hellfire but in this life as well: “For them in this world is disgrace, and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment” (5:41).

Jews dare to deny divine revelation, claiming that “Allah did not reveal to a human being anything,” to which Muhammad is told to respond, “Who revealed the Scripture that Moses brought as light and guidance to the people? You [Jews] make it into pages, disclosing [some of] it and concealing much” (6:91).

In light of all this, it is understandable that Muslims should not get close to such people: “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people” (5:51). What’s more, the Jews are “the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers” (5:82).

While Muslims are the “best of people” (3:110), “they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are the worst of creatures” (98:6). They are “like livestock” (7:179). “Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are those who have disbelieved, and they will not [ever] believe” (8:55).

But when John Jamason called the Qur’an “a book that preaches hate,” in the eyes of CAIR it was he who was the one who was preaching hate, not the holy book of Islam. The hypocrisy of their harassment of Jamason was self-evident, but only to those familiar enough with the Qur’an and honest enough to acknowledge the nature of all too much of its contents. That was a small group that did not include officials of Palm Beach County, who were – like so many other officials of all kinds in the United States and elsewhere in the staggering but still marginally free world – all too ready to entertain the complaints about Muslim pressure groups despite being woefully ill-equipped to evaluate those complaints properly. They knew, like Fort Hood jihad mass murderer Nidal Hasan’s superiors, that what was important above all was to avoid being labeled “bigoted” and “Islamophobic.”

How grand that they had their priorities straight. All it cost was thirteen dead and thirty wounded.

National Park Service produces videos praising Islam's contributions to women's rights

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/national-park-service-produces-videos-praising-islams-contributions-to-womens-rights.html


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCBm_tkfaQs

Your tax dollars at work. I am looking forward to seeing the National Park Service videos praising the contributions of Judaism and Christianity to women's rights.

"National Park Service Produces Videos Praising Islam's Contributions To Women's Rights," from the Independent Journal Review (http://www.ijreview.com/2013/09/80143-national-park-service-produces-videos-praising-islams-contributions-womens-rights/), September 18:
Another example of your hard-earned tax dollars at work! Apparently, the National Park Service has a ton of money lying around and thought that maybe producing some pro-Islam videos might further their mission to provide national parks to Americans.
Seems legit.

So they hired a media person to visit the AnNur Islamic School in Schenectady, NY and got the real truth about Islam. Which may surprise you.

From the first part of the 3 videos at the 4:45 mark:
People think that Islam oppresses women and there’s no equality, but they’re wrong – there’s equity… 7th century A.D. Islam gave women the right to be involved in politics, the right to earn and keep her own money. Islam gave women the right to work outside of the home, Islam gave women the right to own property, Islam gave women the right to divorce, Islam gave women the right to choose who she marries. Islam gave women a whole bunch of rights that Western women acquired later in the 19th and 20th centuries and we’ve had these rights since the 7th century A.D. and it’s just not acknowledged worldwide.
It’s fantastic that the National Park Service is out there using taxpayer dollars to correct the false record against Muslims, such as the “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood’s scathing backlash against the UN’s Declaration on Women’s Rights. Or Muslim states’ objection to “gay rights” at a UN human rights forum – we wouldn’t want these countries to be confused with Vladimir Putin’s Russia, for Allah’s sake!...

CAIR Leaders Curry Favor With Dictators
by John Rossomando


• Sep 19, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4166/cair-leaders-curry-favor-with-dictators


The International Criminal Court (ICC) charged (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2009/mar/04/omar-bashir-sudan-president-arrest) Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir with genocide and crimes against humanity in March 2009, but that did not keep Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) Executive Director Nihad Awad from meeting with the dictator's representatives in November 2009, according to law-enforcement sources.

Bashir is wanted in connection with the Darfur genocide (http://www.theguardian.com/world/2009/mar/04/omar-bashir-sudan-president-arrest) that stirred a global outcry. He recently stirred controversy (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/19/world/africa/united-nations.html) by trying to get into the United States to attend this month's opening of the United Nations General Assembly.

The sources told the Investigative Project on Terrorism that the Sudanese dictator's representatives met with Awad during the 2009 UN summit seeking his help to gain access to individuals in the Obama administration.

Awad subsequently traveled to Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Qatar in August 2010 and met with a representative of Bashir.

This was not the first time the CAIR chief met with representatives of dictators. He sought out help (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2709/cair-officials-sought-gaddafi-money) from late Libyan dictator Col. Muammar Gaddafi in September 2009, seeking his help underwriting CAIR's efforts to distribute 1 million copies of the Quran to government officials and to the general public in the United States.

A Libyan news website noted CAIR communications director Ibrahim Hooper and Chairman Larry Shaw joined Awad in appealing to the Libyan dictator. "[W]e appreciate your efforts over the years and wish also to extend your interest will extend to Muslims in America, God willing," Awad said at a reception for Gaddafi. This came after Gaddafi's rambling, 100-minute speech (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32986087/ns/world_news-united_nations/) to the General Assembly

In addition to the Qurans, Awad sought Gaddafi's help in launching a new entity called the Muslim Peace Foundation.

But CAIR's stance toward Gaddafi shifted after the start of the Arab Spring when Gaddafi began killing his own people. Awad and CAIR then denounced him as a madman. The CAIR leader denied receiving any money from Gaddafi during a March 2011 radio interview, saying that his pitch had failed.

But it was not as if Gaddafi's human-rights record was unknown in 2009. President Ronald Reagan denounced him as the "mad dog of the Middle East" following the bombing of a Berlin discotheque (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1986_Berlin_discotheque_bombing) that killed that killed American soldiers in 1986, followed two years later by the Lockerbie bombing.

State Department documents (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/270.pdf) obtained by the IPT under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) show that Awad, Hooper and Shaw visited Saudi Arabia to solicit $50 million in governmental and non-governmental contributions.

Hamas-linked CAIR collects millions from foreign donors thanks to non-profit shell game

http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/21/cair-collects-millions-from-foreign-donors-thanks-to-non-profit-shell-game

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/hamas-linked-cair-collects-millions-from-foreign-donors-thanks-to-non-profit-shell-game.html


While Hamas-linked CAIR is publicizing its false and inaccurate new report on the financing of "Islamophobes," a category in which they now place just about everyone who thinks 9/11 was a bad thing, its own financial dealings are genuinely shady -- but they know they can rely on support from the clueless and compromised in high places.

The best part of this story is that CAIR's real name is actually WTF. Could the sour and self-righteous Ibrahim Hooper have a sense of humor after all? Whether he does or not, he has now given the world the proper reaction whenever this unsavory gang of thugs claims victim status in the wake of a jihad murder attack: "CAIR fears anti-Muslim backlash after terror attack" -- "WTF?"

"CAIR collects millions from foreign donors thanks to non-profit shell game," by Charles C. Johnson in the Daily Caller (http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/21/cair-collects-millions-from-foreign-donors-thanks-to-non-profit-shell-game), September 21:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) conceals donations from overseas through a series of shell organizations, according to documents from court actions involving the Muslim advocacy group.

Since its founding in 1994, CAIR has presented itself to American Muslims and the media as a single organization centered on American concerns. But it shows a different face to the IRS, with multiple corporate entities that conceal the large financial donations that come to CAIR from Middle East sources.

As a registered lobbying group, CAIR is required to report to the IRS contributions over $5,000. Its shifting 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) branches, however, make it possible to collect millions of dollars from oil-rich Muslim nations without disclosure. Documents show CAIR has received millions of dollars in overseas contributions and tens of millions in pledges from overseas.

CAIR’s convoluted structure and funding machinations are dizzying. Today, the original Council on American Islamic Relations doesn’t exist at all. In June 2013, CAIR changed its name to the nondescriptly named Washington Trust Foundation (http://www.scribd.com/doc/169514273/WTF-Incorporation-Docs-DCRA-File-Re-WTF-Fka-CAIR-An-as-of-6-18-13-OCR), Inc. (WTF).

“Plentiful legal evidence, acquired in the course of a lawsuit—plus CAIR’s own official filing documents to the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) and IRS—make clear that CAIR has engaged in a thinly-disguised money laundering operation,” David Reaboi, vice president for strategic communications at the Center for Security Policy, told The Daily Caller.

“In addition to violating its 501(c)(3) regulations, CAIR’s undisclosed and hidden foreign donations amount to violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act as well,” Reaboi continued.

CAIR formed in 1994 (http://www.scribd.com/doc/169514823/CAIR-1994-Articles-of-Incorp-DCRA-File-Re-WTF-Fka-CAIR-An-as-of-6-18-13-OCR) by filing with the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) and soon after obtained 501(c)(4) status from the IRS as a non-profit lobbying organization.

The year before, the organization’s two founders — current Executive Director Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad — were captured on FBI wiretaps of high-level Hamas leaders (http://www.investigativeproject.org/282/cair-executive-director-placed-at-hamas-meeting), discussing the need for a public relations effort supporting that group. On the recorded meetings and phone calls, the terrorist group was referred to, in code, as “Samah,” as the participants made covert efforts to fund and promote its activities in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to the tune of millions of dollars.

New York:
Three Muslims charged with fighting for al-Shabaab jihad terror group

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/new-york-three-muslims-charged-with-fighting-for-al-shabaab-jihad-terror-group.html


This is the same group that has just carried out the Kenya mall jihad massacre. "Who cares? (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/hamas-linked-cair-on-possibility-that-us-muslims-participated-in-kenya-jihad-mass-murders-who-cares.html)" -- Hamas-linked CAIR's Ibrahim "Honest Ibe" Hooper

"3 charged in NYC with fighting for al-Shabab terrorist group," from the Associated Press (http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/09/23/3-charged-in-nyc-with-fighting-for-al-shabab-terrorist-group/), September 23 (thanks to Pamela Geller (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/09/jihad-in-ny-3-muslims-in-nyc-charged-with-fighting-for-al-shabab-terrorist-group.html)):
NEW YORK – Three men facing federal terrorism charges in New York City have strong ties to the same extremist Islamic group that's claimed responsibility for the deadly attack on an upscale Kenyan shopping mall, U.S. authorities say.

Prosecutors in Brooklyn describe the defendants — Ali Yasin Ahmed, Madhi Hashi and Mohamed Yusuf — as "dangerous and influential" members of al-Shabab who were part of an elite unit of suicide bombers. They were captured in Africa last year while traveling to Yemen to team up with the Al Qaeda offshoot there.

The three had links to Al Qaeda operatives in East Africa "who sought to carry out attacks against the United States and Western interests in that region," prosecutors wrote in a letter filed on Sept. 18, three days before rampaging gunmen killed dozens in an attack on the Nairobi mall.

The men are also accused of having "substantial knowledge regarding an al-Shabab research and development department that was developing chemical weapons for use."

Shortly after the FBI took custody of the men in November, they pleaded not guilty in a sealed proceeding in federal court in Brooklyn to providing material support to al-Shabab. The case has since been unsealed and Ahmed and Hashi were to appear Monday in court for a status conference.

All three men are from Somalia, authorities said. Ahmed, 27, and Yusuf, 29, have citizenship in Sweden and Hashi, 23, in Great Britain.

The charges allege that between 2008 and 2012, the men traveled to Somalia to receive weapons and explosives training from al-Shabab and were "deployed in combat operations" there.

"As alleged, these defendants are not aspiring terrorists — they are terrorists," George Venizelos, head of the FBI's New York office, said when the case was first announced. "They did more than receive terrorist training. They put that training to practice in terrorist operations."

Government papers filed this year cited conversations intercepted by authorities in Sweden as evidence against the men.

In 2008 Ahmed and Yusuf "discussed ... their intention to travel to Somalia for the purpose of joining al-Shabab and dying as martyrs," the papers say. In another conversation, Ahmed said he was an associate of a suicide bomber who killed two dozen people, including three government ministers, at a hotel gathering in Mogadishu in 2009.

Ahmed was interviewed by authorities in 2008 but denied he was an al-Shabab supporter, the papers allege. But by 2011, all three were in Somalia fighting for al-Shabab and enrolled in a "suicide bomber training program," the papers added.

Hamas-linked CAIR on possibility that U.S. Muslims participated in Kenya jihad mass murders: "Who cares?"

http://nypost.com/2013/09/24/us-terrorists-dont-matter-islamic-american-advocates/ (http://nypost.com/2013/09/24/us-terrorists-dont-matter-islamic-american-advocates/)

Hamas-linked CAIR's Ibrahim "Honest Ibe" Hooper may have adopted this cavalier attitude, reminiscent of Hillary Clinton's answer to the question of whether Benghazi was a terror attack, in order to deflect attention away from the charge that Hamas-linked CAIR obstructed attempts to stop al-Shabaab from recruiting for jihad in U.S. mosques (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/hamas-linked-cair-impeded-fbi-probe-of-jihad-terror-group-behind-kenya-mall-jihad-mass-murder.html).

"Muslim group: ‘Who cares’ if US terrorists in Kenya mall siege," by S.A. Miller for the New York Post (http://nypost.com/2013/09/24/us-terrorists-dont-matter-islamic-american-advocates/), September 24:
WASHINGTON – One of the most prominent and controversial Muslim-American advocacy groups says “who cares” if American jihadists were involved in the murderous terror attack on a shopping mall in Kenya.

“It doesn’t matter who’s involved in it,” Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), told The Post.

“Terrorism is terrorism, whether it is Americans involved or anyone from any nation or background. Who cares?” he said.

Kenyan Foreign Minister Amina Mohamed said Monday “two or three Americans” were among the bloodthirsty thugs from the al Qaeda-linked group al-Shabab who attacked the mall, hunting down and killing non-Muslims.

The American jihadists were 18 to 19 years old and of Somali or Arab origin and came from Minnesota and another place in the United States, Mohamed told PBS.

CAIR is a DC-based nonprofit organization that describes itself as a “grassroots civil rights and advocacy group” for Muslim-Americans. The group also has been linked to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

“The American-Muslim community has repeatedly and consistently condemned all acts of terrorism, in whatever form they take and wherever they occur,” said Hooper.
Sure, but what are doing to keep Muslims in the U.S. from imbibing the ideas that lead them to think that they have to commit acts of terror to please Allah? Why, nothing. Nothing at all.
Stressing that Islamic extremists from the United States or around the world are merely a “tiny minority” of Muslims, he insisted that American Muslims are not being radicalized in American mosques or American Muslim communities.

“When you see individuals engaged in religious extremism or violence, it’s a violation of the norms in their community – not because of something that is being promoted,” he said.
Then why does Hamas-linked CAIR tell Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/12/hamas-linked-cair-thug-cyrus-mcgoldrick-again-threatens-snitches.html)?

Somali-American tried to stop Al-Shabaab jihad recruitment in U.S., so Hamas-linked CAIR called him an "Islamophobe"

The Islamophobic Bihi

Yet more indication of which side Hamas-linked CAIR is really on: "Somali-American leader: ‘I tried to warn America’ about homegrown radicalization,'" by Charles C. Johnson in the Daily Caller (http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/23/somali-american-leader-i-tried-to-warn-america-about-homegrown-radicalization/2/), September 23 (thanks to all who sent this in):
The Council on American Islamic Relations repeatedly tried to stop a Minnesota community leader from warning about the dangers al-Qaida-linked group posed to the Somali-American community prior to the Kenyan mall massacre.

“I tried to warn America,” Abdirizak Bihi, a Minnesota-based Somali community leader, explained to The Daily Caller.

Minnesota residents were reportedly among the attackers (http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/23503624/minnesota-connections-to-kenya-mall-attack) in the grisly assault by al-Shabaab terrorists on the Westgate mall in Nairobi, Kenya. The Twin Cities are home to the largest Somali community in the United States.

Bihi has been working to stop radicalization (http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2011-07-08/national/35238565_1_terrorist-attacks-muslim-activist-suicide-bomber) of Somali-Americans for years. He has testified before Congress (http://homeland.house.gov/hearing/hearing-%E2%80%9C-extent-radicalization-american-muslim-community-and-communitys-response%E2%80%9D) about the dangers of radicalization in the U.S. Somali community, working alongside the FBI and the Justice Department. His involvement is personal. Bihi’s nephew was radicalized by al-Shabaab and joined the group in 2008. He was killed the following year.

But he told The Daily Caller the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has blocked his efforts for years, telling law enforcement agencies by telling them that he doesn’t know the Somali community and calling him “an Islamophobe” in a recent report.

“They say that I am a bad person, that I am anti-Muslim, and that I don’t represent a hundred percent the Somali community,” Bihi said. “They lie about my life most of the time and try to destroy my character, my capability, and my trust in the community.”
Gee, where have I heard Hamas-linked CAIR act like that before?
Bihi, director of the Somali Education and Social Advocacy Center, also says CAIR has tried to bring Somalis into the organization and denies the threat that terrorism poses....

Bihi blames CAIR with coming between his organization and the Abubakar as-Saddique mosque (http://abuubakar.org/new/) in Minneapolis. “It’s a big mosque,” he said. “That mosque lately has been doing works to combat al-Shabaab.” But he said when the mosque was more closely affiliated with CAIR, it was a center for recruitment by radicals. “All of our kids were going there for years. That’s where indoctrination happened,” he said....

Hamas-linked CAIR has been running a global criminal money laundering operation out of Washington, DC

It has been a bad week for the Islamic supremacist thugs of Hamas-linked CAIR: no sooner do they issue their wildly inaccurate "Islamophobia" report than Islamic jihadists commit major acts of jihad mass murder in Nigeria, Iraq, and Kenya, thereby giving the lie to the claim that people have negative views of Islam because of an alleged network of allegedly well-heeled alleged "Islamophobes," rather than because of the actions of violent and supremacist Muslims avowedly acting the name of Islam. Then in the wake of the Kenya jihad murders, it came out that Hamas-linked CAIR was accused of interfering with the investigation (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/hamas-linked-cair-impeded-fbi-probe-of-jihad-terror-group-behind-kenya-mall-jihad-mass-murder.html) into the Somali jihad group Al Shabaab's recruitment activities in the U.S. -- and American jihadis thus recruited are among the jihad murderers.

And now it turns out that they're laundering money, too. Hamas-linked CAIR top dogs Nihad Awad and Ibrahim Hooper can still enjoy those Obama Justice Department soirees, but perhaps sanity will prevail and they will not be enjoying such access much longer.

"Council on American-Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) Legitimacy Undermined by its Criminal Money Laundering Scheme," from the American Freedom Law Center (http://www.americanfreedomlawcenter.org/), September 24:
Washington, D.C. (September 24, 2013) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which bills itself as “the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization,” released a so-called report last week entitled, “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and its Impact in the United States,” which purports to identify dozens of organizations “dedicated to promoting anti-Islam prejudice in America.” CAIR’s report garnered significant media attention, including a full-length article posted in The Washington Post.

In the report, CAIR highlighted the American Freedom Law Center (AFLC), a national, nonprofit Judeo-Christian law firm, and its Co-Founders and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi and Robert Muise, as being part of the “inner core” of the “Islamophobia network.”

In response to CAIR’s allegations, Yerushalmi commented: “For some time now, ‘anti-hate’ groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center and CAIR have been successful in promoting the notion that they are legitimate organizations that objectively highlight individuals and groups that promote ‘hate’ in America. In reality, these organizations use their compatriots in the mainstream media to advance their agendas through misinformation and duplicity. While the Southern Poverty Law Center is basically a self-serving fundraising machine masquerading as a civil rights organization, CAIR has a proven track record of dangerously waging what the Muslim Brotherhood calls ‘civilizational jihad’ to destroy the West from within. Indeed, CAIR is the largest Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group in America.”

After three years of litigation in federal court in Washington, D.C., AFLC has uncovered facts demonstrating that CAIR has been running a global criminal money laundering operation out of the nation’s capitol. The scheme was discovered in the course of legal discovery in two separate federal lawsuits arising out of allegations by five of CAIR’s former clients that CAIR defrauded them by failing to provide the legal services they had been promised.

While CAIR bills itself as the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights organization, it has been named by the U.S. Department of Justice as a Muslim Brotherhood-Hamas front group and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation criminal trial, the nation’s largest terrorism finance prosecution to date, resulting in convictions in 2008 for all five leaders of the terrorist financing ring operating as the Holy Land Foundation Muslim charity. Prison sentences ranged from 20 years to 65 years.

As brought out in the Holy Land Foundation criminal trial, CAIR founders Nihad Awad and Omar Ahmad were participants in the conspiracy, although not formally charged. These two men formed CAIR in 1994 in an effort to create a front organization to further the Muslim Brotherhood goals in this country. But, like many criminal fronts, CAIR itself turns out to be a criminal organization.

Part of CAIR’s criminal operations included representing itself to be a public interest law firm created to protect the civil rights of Muslim Americans. In reality, however, CAIR has unlawfully employed non-lawyers to provide legal representation to Muslim Americans. In one case, CAIR employed a man by the name of Morris Days as its “Resident Attorney” who claimed to represent hundreds of CAIR clients in various state and federal litigation matters. In reality, CAIR and its “Resident Attorney” were not filing any actual lawsuits on behalf of these clients. Moreover, after the fraud was discovered, CAIR attempted to cover-up the whole affair with threats of litigation against the victims and finally with payoffs to other potential witnesses.

AFLC now represents five of these former CAIR “clients” who had sought out CAIR’s legal services for various matters, including workplace discrimination, immigration, and family law matters. Three of these former CAIR clients are Muslims, including two African Americans and a Pakistani.

Specifically, in 2010, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel David Yerushalmi filed suit in federal court in Washington, D.C., against CAIR on behalf of these CAIR victims, alleging fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. After several years of legal discovery, which required Yerushalmi to go to court on numerous occasions to compel CAIR to turn over documents, which in turn led the court to warn CAIR’s in-house counsel, Nadhira Al-Khalili, that her conduct was unprofessional and would result in the court filing a formal Bar complaint against her if it did not cease, this case is now awaiting the court’s ruling on the extent of CAIR’s liability.

In the midst of gathering evidence to prove the plaintiffs’ case, AFLC discovered evidence of a criminal money laundering organization run out of CAIR’s Washington D.C. offices. The scheme was created in 2005 by CAIR, which at the time was an IRS-approved 501(c)(4) lobbying organization. CAIR’s problem was that as a registered lobbying group it had to report to the IRS the source of funds received over $5,000. The specific problem was that CAIR was receiving millions of dollars from oil-rich Gulf Arabs, the same sources that were also financing the Muslim Brotherhood to prepare for the “Arab Spring” and even Al Qaeda operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. CAIR’s expensive headquarters in the nation’s capitol was financed with millions of dollars from Gulf sovereign sources. At one point, CAIR even sought millions of dollars from Libya’s now dead strong man, Moamar Ghaddafi, in an effort to distribute to Muslim Americans Qurans with an Islamist translation and commentary together with Muslim Brotherhood literature.

To avoid reporting these millions of dollars from the dubious Islamist sources and to avoid registering as an agent for foreign sovereigns as required by federal law, CAIR created a separate company called CAIR-Foundation, Inc., to serve as an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) charitable organization. CAIR itself stopped filing any federal tax returns from 2008-2010 and allowed the IRS to withdraw its status as a 501(c)(4), converting itself to a regular for-profit corporation. CAIR also ceased all of its operations and became simply a holding company, transferring, at least on the books, all of its employees and equipment to CAIR Foundation.

The result is that CAIR, the for-profit, now receives millions of dollars from foreign Islamist sources every year, acting in effect as a foreign agent for these foreign governments, but only has to report the amounts of its income and not its sources. CAIR then transfers these monies to CAIR Foundation as loans or grants, and CAIR Foundation then only has to report its source as CAIR. The result is a criminal money laundering operation that allows CAIR to funnel millions of dollars from dubious foreign sources into a lobbying group fronting as a charity without the legally required disclosure of sources.

Indeed, CAIR is so brazen about its operation that it maintains only one website for CAIR, which does not even mention CAIR Foundation. In this way, CAIR receives smaller donations from presumably Muslim Americans made payable to “CAIR,” thus allowing CAIR to decide which “CAIR” will get the money. The small U.S. donations are deposited into CAIR Foundation’s bank account, which in turn reports these small innocuous donations to the IRS. The big money transfers from the Gulf, however, are conveniently deposited in the CAIR bank account, which does not require any disclosure of the source of the funds. This presents no problem to the Gulf Islamist terror financiers because they are obviously not looking for a U.S. tax deduction. What CAIR does not explain of course is why sovereign Gulf nations, like the UAE and Saudi Arabia, would be transferring these kinds of sums to a holding company that has no employees or operations.

Yerushalmi commented: “An interesting but unanswered question is why the IRS would have registered CAIR Foundation as a legitimate 501(c)(3) organization in 2005? An even more intriguing question is why, in 2012, the IRS re-registered CAIR Foundation as a legitimate 501(c)(3) charitable organization, particularly after it had lost its status because it failed to file the organization’s federal tax reports (on IRS form 990) for three consecutive years and in light of the obvious illegal use of CAIR as a money laundering front? And, all of this, at a time when the IRS was improperly holding up conservative and pro-Israel groups’ applications for the same 501(c)(3) status. At the very least this should give rise to heightened concerns.”

Robert Muise, AFLC Co-Founder and Senior Counsel, concluded: “CAIR’s criminal financial operations raise a whole host of questions that the IRS and the Department of Justice should be investigating. The obvious question to be asked now is whether the IRS can get past its politically motivated witch-hunt of the Tea Party and pro-Israel groups and whether the Department of Justice will finally prosecute CAIR and its founders for their direct and indirect involvement in the material support of terrorism.”

It does not charge for its services. The Law Center is supported by contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations, and is recognized by the IRS as a section 501(c)(3) organization.

Radical Imagery at NY Muslim Day Parade

IPT News
September 24, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4173/radical-imagery-at-ny-muslim-day-parade


http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/881_large.jpg
Hundreds of people marched in a "Muslim Day Parade" Sunday in New York City that was hosted by the Muslim Foundation of America.

The parade, an annual event held on the last Sunday in September, is intended to bring together "Muslim-Americans from the five boroughs and beyond, celebrating the rich, cultural traditions of a faith that has provided hope, support, and comfort to generations of New Yorkers."

According to its website (http://muslimdayparade.com/), the parade "gives all New Yorkers an opportunity to renew their commitment to our city's diverse spiritual community and to commemorate the tremendous contributions of Muslim New Yorkers."

There were scores of people marching who seemed to buy into that, with Muslim law enforcement officers marching in uniform and some groups proudly waving American flags. New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly made an appearance, seeming to indicate that the city wanted to support its Muslim community.

But many used the event to utter political messages. A sizeable contingent carried signs or wore T-shirts with images of ousted (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4072/morsi-is-out-muslim-brotherhood-downbut-is-it-out) Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and with the "R4bia" logo indicating solidarity with Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi was forced from office after an estimated 30 million Egyptians – nearly half the country – took to the streets to protest his year in office. Critics say Morsi was more focused on consolidating power for Islamists than in addressing social and economic crises in the country.

Upon closer inspection, an otherwise sweet scene of young children singing about their devotion to Islam, included the toddlers holding up R4rbia's tell-tale hand gesture.

Khaled Lamada, a parade trustee and founder of a group – Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights – which has staged several protests (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4122/ipt-video-report-washington-mb-rally) demanding Morsi's return to power, used his speech to drum up support for another upcoming pro-Morsi demonstration.

"So I'd like everyone to call our administration to recognize it's a coup," Lamada said. "Don't let the media lie to you, don't let the administration lie to you. It's a coup. The second thing, I would like every free person, American, Muslim and non-Muslim to go out on September 28th in front of the United Nations to say it's a coup and to stop dictators from running countries."

More disturbing, the parade somehow managed to incorporate six marchers proudly waving the flag of Jihad. The flag, seen in the video below, is often used as a rallying call for radical Islamists who call for violent battle and the organization of a global caliphate. It is under this banner that so many jihadist attacks have occurred worldwide—including the most recent attack, the multi-day massacre of civilians in a mall in Nairobi, Kenya by the al-Qaida linked militant group Al-Shabaab last weekend.

Jihad Flags @ Muslim Day Parade NYC 2013

It would have been an encouraging sight at this celebration of diversity and contribution if other Muslims in the parade chastised the minority advocating jihad and theocracy. It's unclear from our experience with the event that such a stand against terror was taken. But it would have been nice, and certainly worthy of commendation.

Do You Know the History Behind the ‘Black Flags of Jihad’? TheBlaze’s Buck Sexton Breaks It Down

By Erica Ritz (http://www.theblaze.com/author/erica-ritz/)

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/09/25/do-you-know-the-history-behind-the-black-flags-of-jihad-theblazes-buck-sexton-breaks-it-down/


Many are familiar with what some call “the black flags of jihad” flown by Islamic extremists from Jabhat al-Nusra to Al Qaeda. The flags vary in appearance, but most share a similar theme: they typically have white writing on a black flag, and depict the shehada, or profession of faith that there is no god but god, and Muhammad is his messenger.

After such flags were seen flying in New York City (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/09/24/were-black-flags-of-jihad-flying-over-nycs-muslim-day-parade/) during recent the Muslim Day Parade, Glenn Beck invited TheBlaze’s national security advisor Buck Sexton to explain the historic and symbolic significance of the flags.

“The black banner, also known as the ‘black flags of Khurasan,’ this is something that stretches back into the earliest days of Islam,” Sexton began. “It references a ‘rising up,’ if you will, of a Muslim army from a region called Khurasan, and they will have black banners.”

Sexton pointed to the map below as the rough modern boundaries of Khurasan:

(Photo: TheBlaze TV)

Sexton proceed to highlight two passages in the Hadith that are often cited as the inspiration for the flags.

The first is: “The black flags will come from the East, led by mighty men, with long hair and beards. Their surnames are taken from the names of their home towns and their first names are from a ‘Kunya.’”

The second states: “Messenger of Allah said: If you see the Black Banners coming from Khurasan go to them immediately, even if you must crawl over ice, because indeed amongst them is the Caliph, Al Mahdi.”

Sexton said “Al Mahdi” is a reference to Islamic “end times” theology.

But are the black flags something that have been seen throughout history, Beck asked? He noted that just because somebody has an American flag, that doesn’t necessarily mean they stand for the U.S. Constitution. If a Muslim who speaks Arabic holds such a black flag, are they aware of the historical significance?

“It’s popping up more now because jihadists are on the march in a number of places,” Sexton responded. “When the Umayyads were fighting, they were flying black flags, and that goes back to the earliest days of Islam.”

But the flags we’re seeing now, he added, are “contemporary black flags.” Sexton proceeded to show pictures of the flags flying in Syria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Iraq, and more.

“If that’s not scary enough with the end times…this is the one that actually hits the most home for me,” Sexton said, showing a picture of a man kneeling in front of a group of armed men, all in front of the black flag. “This is the beginning of a beheading video.”

“That’s what that flag stands for,” Sexton said unequivocally. “It’s not a ‘resistance symbol.’”

And while no one is saying it’s illegal to wave such a flag, TheBlaze’s national security adviser said “we should at least be willing to call it what it is.”

“If this flag is being used as the backdrop for beheading videos, it’s not because the jihadists are confused,” he said. “In fact, it’s because we refuse to accept who the enemy is.”

Sexton ended on a chilling note, saying that while you and I may not “buy in” to the verses, that doesn’t mean the extremists don’t.

“The people that are trying to take over countries like Egypt, and Syria, and Tunisia, and Libya, they absolutely buy into it. They know these Hadiths by heart,” he said. “Some Sunni jurists will say, ‘Oh no, those aren’t good Hadiths.’ But guess what? Bin Laden — who signed his first declaration of war against the United States from Khurasan, Afghanistan — he knew that Hadith, and he knew about it enough to tell all of his followers.”

“They believe this,” Sexton concluded. “They believe they are fulfilling prophecy.”

Minneapolis: Young Muslims still joining Somali jihad group behind Kenya mall jihad massacre

http://www.indiaeveryday.in/fullnews-somalis-still-leaving-minn-to-join-terror-group-1013-5956469.htm (http://www.indiaeveryday.in/fullnews-somalis-still-leaving-minn-to-join-terror-group-1013-5956469.htm)

"Al Shabab's recruiting technique was essentially a call to jihad, that this is a religious duty. It was a call to jihad to come and fight." But as long as the official government and media dogma is that jihad is a benign interior spiritual struggle, and that only greasy Islamophobes think it has anything to do with violence, nothing effective will be done to stop this.

"Leaders of Minnesota Somali community say young men still being enticed to join terror group," by Steve Karnowski for the Associated Press (http://www.indiaeveryday.in/fullnews-somalis-still-leaving-minn-to-join-terror-group-1013-5956469.htm), September 26:
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Leaders of the nation's largest Somali community say some of their young men are still being enticed to join the terror group that has claimed responsibility for the deadly mall attack in Kenya, despite a concentrated effort to shut off what authorities call a "deadly pipeline" of men and money.

Six years have passed since Somali-American fighters began leaving Minnesota to become part of al-Shabab. Now the Somali community is dismayed over reports that a few of its own might have been involved in the violence at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi.

"One thing I know is the fear is growing," said Abdirizak Bihi, whose nephew was among at least six men from Minnesota who have died in Somalia. More are presumed dead.

Since 2007, at least 22 young men have left Minnesota to join al-Shabab, including two who did so last summer. Unconfirmed reports that two more left earlier this month have deepened concerns.

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta said Tuesday that initial reports had suggested a British woman and two or three American citizens may have been involved in the attack. But neither Kenyan authorities nor the Minneapolis FBI office had any confirmation.

Minnesota's Somali community, concentrated in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, includes people who fled the long civil war in their east African homeland and children born in the U.S. Many are now American citizens.

The movement of Somalis who've come to be known as "travelers" remains "a priority investigation for the Minneapolis office," FBI Special Agent Kyle Loven said.

At least 18 men and three women have been charged in the ongoing Minnesota investigation. Some went to Somalia while others were accused of aiding the effort mainly by raising money.

Seven men pleaded guilty to various charges. One man was convicted on terrorism-related charges last year. Two women were convicted in 2011 of being fundraisers for al-Shabab. A third woman pleaded guilty last month to lying to a grand jury. The other defendants remain at large, or are confirmed or presumed dead.

Al-Shabab means "The Youth" in Arabic. The group uses a mixture of religion, nationalism and deception to lure young people, said Omar Jamal, a longtime local activist who now serves as the first secretary for the Somali mission to the United Nations.

"They misinform people, and they target young, impressionable kids," Jamal said. "They literally brainwash them. It's a very dangerous cult."

Al-Shabab's local recruitment efforts began in 2007 when small groups began discussing returning home to fight Ethiopian troops who entered Somalia to prop up a weak U.N.-backed government and were seen by many Somalis as foreign invaders. The recruiters aimed their appeal at the young men's patriotic and religious ideals.

Ethiopian troops pulled out of Somalia in 2009, but al-Shabab kept up its fight for power. According to Valentina Soria, a security analyst with London-based IHS Jane's, al-Shabab has increasingly focused in the past three years on the recruitment of western nationals and members of the Somali diaspora in the U.S. and Europe to offset its declining domestic support.

Anders Folk was an assistant U.S. attorney in Minneapolis for several years of the recruiting investigation before leaving for private practice. Al-Shabab's recruiting was at least as effective after the Ethiopians left as before, he said.

"Al Shabab's recruiting technique was essentially a call to jihad, that this is a religious duty," Folk said. "It was a call to jihad to come and fight."

Internet videos are a major tool for the group. Many feature scenes of men with covered faces firing automatic weapons, marching or practicing martial arts, as well as images of dead bodies and religious documents. Some show English-speaking suicide bombers reciting last wills.

The group often appeals to young men who've had trouble assimilating into American life, perhaps because they are unable to get a job, dropped out of school or got involved in gangs, Jamal said.

He cited a recently released al-Shabab propaganda video that lauded three "Minnesotan martyrs," including the American-born non-Somali Troy Kastigar, a convert to Islam.

Smiling and laughing in the footage, Kastigar called his battle experiences "the real Disneyland" and urged other Muslims to come and "take pleasure in this fun." He was killed in 2009 in Mogadishu, according to the video....

Canada: Jihad mass murder plotter says there is no moderate or radical Islam — "there is only one Islam"

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/train-terror-suspect-9-11-tap-cheek-173809187.html (http://ca.news.yahoo.com/train-terror-suspect-9-11-tap-cheek-173809187.html)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/canada-jihad-mass-murder-plotter-says-911-was-a-tap-on-the-cheek.html (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/canada-jihad-mass-murder-plotter-says-911-was-a-tap-on-the-cheek.html)


"Esseghaier is also quoted saying that there is no such thing as moderate or radical Islam — that 'there is only one Islam' and only one God." In response to this, self-proclaimed "moderate" groups in Canada and the U.S. will not challenge or refute Esseghaier's understanding of Islam, but will instead denounce as "Islamophobes" anyone who asks them to do so.

"Train terror suspect: 9-11 was a 'tap on the cheek,'" from The Canadian Press (http://ca.news.yahoo.com/train-terror-suspect-9-11-tap-cheek-173809187.html), September 26:
One of the Via terror suspects has called the 9-11 attacks a "tap on the cheek" compared to the violence committed by the West.
Chiheb Esseghaier is quoted telling La Presse in a prison interview that the Iraq embargo, Afghanistan conflict and support for Israel are examples of the West "plunging a knife into the body" of the Muslim world, by comparison.

La Presse says that, over the course of two interviews, Esseghaier never denied the charges against him. He is one of two people accused of plotting to cause a train disaster in the Niagara region.

According to the newspaper the Tunisian-born scientist also appeared to offer a vaguely worded hint that he is far from unique: "I am only a drop of water in the sea. A detail," he is quoted as having repeated multiple times.

Esseghaier is also quoted saying that there is no such thing as moderate or radical Islam — that "there is only one Islam" and only one God.

He says he only became immersed in religion after arriving at the University of Sherbrooke, when he read from books and websites about Islam and joined a Muslim students' association and began attending a local mosque.

Beforehand, in his native Tunisia, Esseghaier says he didn't even grow his beard because his parents were constantly on him about what friends he was making. Esseghaier is quoted telling La Presse that, "I wasn't well," back in Tunisia.

Esseghaier has failed to hire a lawyer, dismissing the legitimacy of Canada's legal system. He insists he wants an attorney who will use the Qur'an as a reference instead of the Criminal Code.

Esseghaier and his fellow accused, Raed Jaser, will be in Superior Court in Toronto on Oct. 21 so a judicial pretrial, the next stage in the court process, can be set. Jaser can have a bail hearing.

In his last court appearance, Esseghaier refused a female police officer's attempt to escort him from the courtroom.
"You are not my wife," he said, insisting on being escorted away by a man.

His request was accommodated, with a male guard escorting him away. That decision has drawn complaints in Quebec, in the midst of a broader debate in the province over religious accommodation.

In a separate story today, the newspaper reported that police evidence includes a video of two men milling about the Whirlpool Rapids Bridge at night.

The alleged plot is said to have targeted a train that travels from New York City to Ontario, operated by U.S. rail service Amtrak south of the border and Via Rail staff in Canada.

CAIR’s Islamophobia Meltdown
A terrorist organization attacks its critics.
by Daniel Greenfield (http://frontpagemag.com/author/dgreenfield/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/cairs-islamophobia-meltdown/


Two days after the release of a CAIR report claiming to expose the network financing “Islamophobia”, Charles C. Johnson ran his own report documenting CAIR’s convoluted financing schemes.

While the CAIR report attempted to stigmatize terrorism research by reporting on the straightforward funding of organizations and individuals such as Robert Spencer; the Johnson report showed that CAIR (http://dailycaller.com/2013/09/21/cair-collects-millions-from-foreign-donors-thanks-to-non-profit-shell-game/2/), described by the Justice Department as an unindicted (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1854/doj-cairs-unindicted-co-conspirator-status-legit) co-conspirator in financing terrorism, had engaged in convoluted methods to conceal its financing sources while laundering money from abroad.

Unlike the groups it is targeting, whose language and ideas it criticizes, CAIR went well beyond words, doing everything from helping fund terrorists to obstructing government investigations of terrorism.

Despite its theatrics, CAIR’s Islamophobia report showed nothing except that American organizations researching Islamic terrorism were funded by other Americans. The Johnson report however showed that CAIR had received millions from foreign governments, including Qatar which is notorious for funding terrorist groups like Hamas, and used a shell game to hide the foreign sources of its financing.

CAIR’s attempt to smear terrorism researchers, many of whom have paid a great deal of attention to its terrorist ties, has an obvious motive. It is not reporting on bigotry as a national phenomenon. Instead its report is a clumsy attempt at silencing its critics by denouncing them as bigots.

The targets of the CAIR Islamophobia report include not only terrorism researchers, but also Muslim groups like the American Islamic Forum for Democracy that have been critical of CAIR and its Saudi backers in the past, as well as Voice of the Copts, an organization advocating for the rights of Coptic Christians persecuted by the Muslim Brotherhood.

CAIR, like Hamas, was created by the Muslim Brotherhood. Its attempt to silence liberal Muslim critics and the Coptic Christians whose churches it is burning down as “Islamophobes” is self-serving cynicism.

But the dishonesty doesn’t end there. CAIR’s critics, including Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a feminist and ex-Muslim, are smeared with out of context quotes.

CAIR’s Islamophobia report claims that Ayaan Hirsi Ali “asserted that Breivik ‘had no other choice but to use violence’ because his ‘views were censored.’” The very Think Progress source that CAIR footnotes the quote with however shows her saying, “He says, he had no other choice but to use violence.”

The omission is important. Ayaan Hirsi Ali isn’t giving her own view; she’s quoting Breivik while calling him abhorrent, but warning that silencing people is not the answer.

David Yerushalmi gets the same treatment with CAIR’s report claiming that “Yerushalmi also says he finds truth in the view that Jews destroy their host nations like a fatal parasite.” The full quote has (http://blog.americanfreedomlawcenter.org/cair-continues-smear-campaign-against-aflc-senior-counsel-david-yerushalmi.html) Yerushalmi speaking of the anti-Semite who “simply professes to uncover the many and varied ways Jews destroy their host nations like a fatal parasite.”

The only possible defense for such a brand of malicious quote mangling is sheer incompetence. And the CAIR Islamophobia report is so sloppily put together, its 136 pages packed with so many errors, that it’s clear that the millions of dollars from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf oil terror sponsors did not go to fund its research department.

For example, CAIR attacks Dr. Zuhdi Jasser’s Third Jihad film by claiming that “Police Commissioner Ray Kelly called it ‘wacky’”. In fact it was Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne who said that. The report mentions him later, but manages to misspell his name as “Brown”. CAIR has spent a great deal of time attacking the NYPD, but can’t even be bothered to check its own claims against its own footnotes.

CAIR lazily revives the Breivik smear charging that “Breivik repeatedly quotes Robert Spencer, Walid Shoebat, Pamela Geller, the ‘Gates of Vienna’ blog and Daniel Pipes.” In fact, Breivik often pasted massive documents into his 1,500 page manifesto without regard for individual quotes. Most of the Spencer quotes came from a single pasted document that also quoted Tony Blair and Condoleezza Rice.

CAIR acts as if its report should be treated as a fact-based analysis and an urgent call to action by elected officials, when it is little more than a collection of dishonest attacks against its critics that relies on secondhand smears assembled by those incapable of taking the time to get even the most basic facts right.

That’s not surprising because CAIR is clearly not in the fact business. Challenging a report on mosque radicalization from the American Freedom Law Center, it responds by quoting a Southern Poverty Law Center blog post that mocks the organization. This Mean Girls style of journalism recurs throughout the report as CAIR smears its critics with petty attacks from allied organizations instead of countering them with fact-based rebuttals.

It’s obvious why CAIR wants to silence its critics; because it is incapable of debating them.

Despite CAIR’s efforts, its latest report has been largely ignored even by the media. The Sacramento Bee ran two press releases, likely paid, from CAIR. Aside from Middle Tennessee Public Radio, the Detroit News, the Religion News Service and the Oklahoma Gazette, its report went mostly unnoticed.

It may have been a matter of bad timing.

CAIR’s report was not only released a few days before the far more damning Johnson report, but also released two days after a Justice Department report criticizing (http://www.justice.gov/oig/reports/2013/e0707r.pdf) the FBI for not maintaining proper distance from CAIR “to ensure that the FBI is not supporting individuals who support extremist or terrorist ideologies.”

There’s nothing that deflates an organization’s claim that its critics are Islamophobes like a Justice Department report telling the FBI that it needs to curtail non-investigative interactions with CAIR.

And the bad timing didn’t end there. The CAIR report slammed Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann’s criticism of Mohamed Elibiary. Then Elibiary took to Twitter to blame Coptic Christians for promoting Islamophobia after changing his Twitter picture to include the R4BIA symbol of the Muslim Brotherhood (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dawn-perlmutter/a-new-muslim-brotherhood-symbol-r4bia/)thugs who were murdering Coptic Christians in Egypt.

CAIR’s report attempts to silence the critics calling attention to such atrocities and to their root causes in the Islamic Supremacism of the Muslim Brotherhood.

After the Muslim Brotherhood’s carnage, some of its former members and leaders have broken with the organization. Unfortunately CAIR insists on sticking to the same ideological commitments that originally landed it a spot as an unindicted co-conspirator in the funding of a Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group.

Instead of breaking with the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR has redoubled its efforts to smear terrorism researchers, Muslim liberals and Coptic Christians as Islamophobes. Even as its money laundering is exposed, as the FBI is rebuked for including it in its outreach efforts, it retreats behind the walls of a fortress of “Islamophobia” accusations.

CAIR might do well to consider the fate of its Muslim Brotherhood parent organization. All the Muslim Brotherhood’s lies couldn’t keep the Egyptian people from waking to what it truly stood for. Does CAIR really believe that what didn’t even work in Egypt will somehow work in America?

Father and son, U.S. Muslims with Muslim Brotherhood ties, arrested in Egypt

The indefatigably pro-jihad pseudo-journalist Niraj Warikoo focuses in this story on Mohamed Soltan's claims that he has been abused in prison. All Islamic supremacists and jihadists always claim that they're abused in prison, whether they are or not, but Warikoo does all he can to shift the guilt from the Soltans to the Egyptian regime.

And while he does mention that Salah Soltan has made anti-Semitic remarks, he (true to form as always) leaves out the worst of it. He doesn't mention that Soltan was formerly scholar-in-residence at the Ohio mosque attended by the family of the famous ex-Muslim Rifqa Bary, members of which threatened her life during her high-profile attempt to escape her father's threats after leaving Islam. Salah Soltan has said (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/08/cairo-university-lecturer-in-islamic-jurisprudence-every-muslim-who-meets-a-zionist-is-entitled-to-k.html) that "every Muslim who meets a Zionist is entitled to kill him." He led a hajj pilgrimage with Anwar al-Awlaki (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/11/imam-of-rifqa-barys-ohio-mosque-led-hajj-trip-with-nidal-hasans-jihadist-imam.html). He is close friends with the genocidal, pro-Hitler, Jew-hating Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/01/genocidal-jew-hating-jihadist-sheikh-has-a-friend-inohio.html). He has publicly threatened the U.S. for supporting Israel (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/01/leading-american-muslim-publicly-threatens-us-for-supporting-israel.html).

And remember: Salah Soltan not too long ago was teaching in a mosque in Ohio, as well as the one in Michigan that Warikoo mentions. What did he teach? Who heard him? What are they doing? No one cares -- least of all the jihad water-carrier Niraj Warikoo of the Detroit "Free Press." To care would be "Islamophobic."

"Father, son with metro Detroit ties held in Egypt," by Niraj Warikoo for the Detroit Free Press (http://www.freep.com/article/20131002/NEWS05/310020019/Father-son-metro-Detroit-ties-held-Egypt), October 2:
The former president of Islamic American University in Southfield — a controversial leader with the Muslim Brotherhood known for anti-Semitic remarks — and his son are being detained by Egyptian authorities.

Salah Soltan, who used to live in Dearborn, was arrested last week at the airport in Cairo while he was attempting to board a plane for Sudan. He was later charged with attempted murder and inciting others to kill protesters, according to the Daily News in Egypt and other publications.

His son, Mohamed Soltan, 25, was arrested Aug. 25 and charged with six crimes ranging from funding a terrorist organization to membership in an armed militia.

The arrests of the Soltans are part of a wider crackdown by the Egyptian government against the Muslim Brotherhood and others associated with them. Family members and friends say the charges are trumped up.

On Monday, the son released a letter saying he’s being abused in jail. Mohamed Soltan wrote he suffered a gunshot wound on Aug. 14 during the Egyptian military’s crackdown on Islamists protesting the military coup that had ejected the Muslim Brotherhood from power.

In his letter, Soltan said he’s not getting medical treatment for his wound and that he is routinely beaten by his jailers.

“The brutality with which I have been treated has been mind-boggling,” Soltan wrote in the open letter to his mother.

“During the day, soldiers and police would get in two straight lines, and we would have to run in between them as they beat us with rocks and sticks. ... The officers stripped off our pants and shirts as they beat us with clubs. ... The surgical wound on my arm was open and oozing, and not one of the guards seemed to care because I was labeled a political prisoner.”...

Born in Egypt, Mohamed Soltan lived with his family in Dearborn from 2000 to 2004, attending Star International Academy in Dearborn Heights and Fordson High School. His father headed the Islamic American University in Southfield from 1999 to 2004.

Soltan graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in economics and moved to Egypt to work as a business manager at a petroleum services company, according to his sister, Hanaa Soltan, 28, of Virginia. He participated in the anti-military coup protests this summer, tweeting often about his activities.

“There is a great injustice being done to him, and many Egyptians, without cause,” his sister said. “There’s no end in sight, no judicial process.”

In his letter, Soltan wrote he isn’t a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and was just protesting for the type of liberties he remembers having in the U.S. The charges have no “basis in reality,” he said.

“These are the principles that the American founding fathers also spoke highly of,” Soltan added. “The people of Egypt have the natural right to freedom.”

A Dearborn friend, Suhaib Al-Hanooti, has been working to publicize the case, saying the Egyptian authorities detained him merely “because he was part of a pro-democracy rally.”

His father, Salah Soltan, has been known for repeatedly making anti-Semitic comments, according to the Anti-Defamation League. During a June 7 sermon in Egypt, he said Jews are “the enemies of God ... the cursed ones,” according to the ADL.

New York: Muslim accountant gets 18 years for aiding al-Qaeda


http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/09/30/nyc-accountant-gets-18-years-for-aiding-al-qaida/2896997/ (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/09/30/nyc-accountant-gets-18-years-for-aiding-al-qaida/2896997/)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/10/new-york-muslim-accountant-gets-18-years-for-aiding-al-qaeda.html (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/10/new-york-muslim-accountant-gets-18-years-for-aiding-al-qaeda.html)


But the U.S. is aiding al-Qaeda in Syria. Shouldn't this guy get a medal rather than a jail term?

"NYC accountant gets 18 years for aiding al-Qaeda," from the Associated Press (http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/09/30/nyc-accountant-gets-18-years-for-aiding-al-qaida/2896997/), September 30:
NEW YORK (AP) — A successful accountant who admitted supporting al-Qaeda with money and supplies was sentenced to 18 years in prison Monday by a judge who said it was necessary to deter others from developing similar violent aspirations.

Sabirhan Hasanoff, 37, a citizen of the U.S. and Australia, was sentenced in Manhattan federal court, where he pleaded guilty last year to supporting al-Qaeda and conspiring with others. He was also ordered to forfeit $70,000....

Prosecutors said Hasanoff provided extensive support to al-Qaeda from 2007 to 2010, including by purchasing an advanced remote control for explosives attacks and by reporting rudimentary information about the New York Stock Exchange. They said he also made regular cash donations to people he thought were affiliated with al-Qaeda....

In a letter to the judge, Hasanoff expressed regret for abandoning his life in America, where he lived in Brooklyn with his wife and three children after graduating from Baruch College in Manhattan and obtaining a job as a senior manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

He was working as the chief financial officer for a large company based in Dubai when he was arrested there in 2010 and brought to the United States to face charges.

"I made a good living and my family and I enjoyed a very comfortable lifestyle," he wrote. "And then, for reasons that I still have trouble confronting, I threw that all away."
Wait...what? I thought poverty caused terrorism, and that all the jihadis need is more economic opportunity to turn them into upstanding citizens!
Inspired by radical clerics, he said his desire to strengthen his Muslim faith and fight atrocities committed against Muslims around the world mixed with guilt about his comfortable life.

"I completely renounce any view of Islam that says that violent jihad is in any way acceptable," he said.

Hasanoff told the judge Monday: "I'm very sorry for my conduct. I should have known better, and I don't have any excuses."

An indictment alleged that Hasanoff and met with two men in 2008 to discuss aiding al-Qaeda. It said one of the men paid Hasanoff $50,000 to transfer money and do other tasks for the terrorist network.

The government said Hasanoff and his co-defendant used code words in Internet chats in 2009 about fighting jihad and finding other al-Qaeda contacts. In their coded language, "safari" was used in place of "jihad" and saying a friend was "hospitalized" meant that he was in prison.

California Man Indicted for Supporting Al Qaeda Terrorists
Muslim convert becomes latest U.S. man indicted for terrorism charges, after pledging allegiance, providing "material support" to Al Qaeda.

An Orange County, California resident pleaded guilty on Friday to federal charges accusing him of knowingly providing material support and resources to Al Qaeda.

The indictment charges 24-year-old Sinh Vinh Ngo Nguyen, who also goes by the alias name Hasan Abu Omar Ghannoum, with another count of presenting false information in order to obtain a passport to facilitate an act of international terrorism.

Sources told the Los Angeles Times that Nguyen wanted to become a “foot soldier” for Al Qaida after becoming “radicalized” following his conversion to Islam this past year.

FBI investigators confirmed that Nguyen is a U.S. citizen and was arrested on Friday morning as he was attempting to board a bus heading to Mexico.

"Investigators do not believe Nguyen was traveling with others, nor are they aware of a continuing threat to the public at this time, based on his alleged activities," said FBI advisory.

The suspect was scheduled to make an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, California later in the day, authorities said.

Nguyen's indictment is the latest in a series of domestic terrorism cases in the U.S.

Last week, 32 year-old Khalid Ouazzani (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/172621) of Kansas City, Missouri, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for conspiring to help send money to finance Al-Qaeda's terrorist activities.

Ouazzani, a native of Morocco and a naturalized U.S. citizen, admitted he worked to support Al-Qaeda from August 2007 to this past February, and pledged an oath of support to the terrorist group in June 2008.

He said he personally provided more than $23,000 to the group and performed other tasks for Al-Qaeda.

One week earlier, a joint US-Australian citizen (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/172443) was jailed for 18 years for his part in a Brooklyn-based Al Qaeda fundraising ring.

Islamic History Month Comes to Manitoba, Canada
Is it really the only group worth recognizing?
by Janice Fiamengo (http://frontpagemag.com/author/janice-fiamengo/)


http://frontpagemag.com/2013/janice-fiamengo/islamic-history-month-comes-to-manitoba-canada/


A few weeks ago, in an extraordinary act of dhimmitude, Manitoba became the first Canadian province to proclaim October as Islamic History Month, a month designed to recognize the province’s “flourishing (http://news.gov.mb.ca/news/index.html?item=19253) Muslim community.” Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Christine Melnick gushed (http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/Manitoba-proclaims-October-as-Islamic-History-Month-228100031.html) that “In Manitoba we value and cherish our ethnic diversity, to which the Muslim community contributes so richly.”

Also present at the announcement was Shahina Siddiqui, the chairwoman of Islamic History Month Canada (http://www.islamichistorymonth.com/ihmc2010/) (IHMC), founded in 2007 by the notorious Canadian Islamic Congress, whose former President Mohamed Elmasry (http://www.nationalpost.com/news/story.html?id=12573ab0-13ce-48c4-9e8e-5765b1a654d9) once refused to retract on public television his statement (http://www.montrealmuslimnews.net/transcript.htm) that all Israelis over age 18 were legitimate targets for terrorist attacks, and who wasted hundreds of thousands of public dollars pursuing a human rights complaint against Maclean’s magazine for publishing articles critical of Islam. None of that aggressive Islamic supremacism was evident in the feel-good tropes trotted out by Siddiqui, who stated in the news release that she and her community “are pleased to celebrate, inform, educate, and share with fellow Canadians the Muslim cultural heritage” in order to build “a more inclusive, compassionate, and multicultural Canada.”

Anyone who has been paying attention to the news over the past few years may well question whether Muslim presence tends to contribute to “compassion” and “inclusivity.” Tell that to the Christians being massacred (http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3318/muslim-persecution-of-christians-july-2012) in Muslim lands across the Middle East or to the European Jews (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/davidhornik/the-bleak-prospects-for-europes-jews/) who find themselves, yet again, the target of slurs, vandalism, beatings, and murder because they are unfortunate enough to be living in areas with concentrations of Muslim immigrants. Islam just doesn’t seem to be a religion that produces a lot of compassion.

For those with negative perceptions of Islam, the Manitoba announcement will, if not lay our fears to rest, certainly indicate decisively that Manitoba has now ruled them out of bounds. The Manitoba provincial website (http://news.gov.mb.ca/news/index.html?item=19253) proclaims that Islamic History Month is intended to “recognize and celebrate the history and heritage of Muslims.”

One might be forgiven for not realizing that Muslims have made a significant enough contribution to Manitoba to deserve an entire month of celebration. Manitoba’s Muslims number around 9,000, less than 1% of Manitoba’s total population of just over 1.2 million people.

Like most parts of Canada, Manitoba has a relatively multicultural demographic, with many diverse groups who have made substantial contributions to the province’s history. Ukrainians, for example, first arrived in Manitoba in 1891 and constitute, according to the 2006 census, nearly 13% (167,175 people) of the present-day population. This Slavic group forms the backbone of modern Manitoba, having played a significant role in agricultural development as well as in the spheres of business, manufacturing, the trades and professions. As an item (http://www.mhs.mb.ca/docs/transactions/3/firstukrainians.shtml) on Manitoba history notes, “there are six members of Ukrainian origin sitting in the legislative assembly, one of whom is the speaker of the house, and [Ukrainian-Canadians] have been elected reeves, mayors, councillors, and aldermen in eighteen municipalities.”

Another distinct and vital part of the province are Manitoban Jews, who arrived even earlier than Ukrainians, in 1874. Although their numbers have never been large (they are now, at 16,500, only about 1.3% of the provincial population), and although anti-Semitism created many barriers during their first century in the province, Jews made enormous contributions (http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/special/ourcityourworld/the-jews-of-manitoba-or-the-centre-of-its-own-diaspora-154385665.html) as farmers, laborers, storekeepers, lawyers, judges, political leaders, teachers, and philanthropists. Neither of these groups is publicly recognized with its own Manitoban month. The fact is that there aren’t enough months in the year to properly acknowledge all the peoples who have made Manitoba what it is, and such attempts at recognition are bound to create bad blood.

In the case of Manitoba’s 9,000 Muslims, it isn’t clear why they deserve special acknowledgement; the announcement does not get past bromides about diversity. A few years ago, a dozen Muslim families in Winnipeg made national headlines (http://life.nationalpost.com/2011/02/05/muslim-families-in-winnipeg-want-children-excused-from-certain-classes/) for demanding that their children be excused from participating in two mandatory primary-level school programs: music (not part of their culture, they claimed) and physical co-education (not morally acceptable). The same Chair of IHMC, Shahina Siddiqui, then executive director of Islamic Social Services in Winnipeg, was quick to point out in interview that these are a minority of Manitoba’s Muslims. Some Muslims do have a problem with co-education at the higher school levels, she confirmed, and accommodation has been made for them. But there should be no problem with co-education “under the age of puberty.”

Come again? Why should accommodation be made at any time?

And here we get to the heart of the matter: the demand that Muslim cultural traditions and doctrines—even those that run directly counter to Canadian values such as gender equality—take precedence over Canadian laws. Rather than accepting and seeking to become a part of the society to which they have chosen to immigrate, Muslims such as these demand special accommodations and rights—for halal food, single-sex swimming times, special worship spaces, and so on.

And now their own month too.

Hovering behind the Immigration Minister’s embrace of Islamic History Month, of course, is the Muslim claim to special victim status. In an article (http://www.torontomuslims.com/NewsInfo/Articles/tabid/97/Article/137/let-me-tell-you-a-story-how-islamic-history-month-canada-came-to-be-and-what-it.aspx) entitled “How Islamic History Month Canada Came to Be and What It Means to You,” the President of the Canadian Islamic Congress, Wahida Valiante, complained in her first sentence that “Over the past decade, Muslims in Western societies have been pushed into the harsh spotlight of negative discourse. This trend has been particularly evident in academia, among mainstream media, and in prevailing political rhetoric; but has not escaped other segments of Canadian society, including the general public.”

Even if this assertion of negative coverage were true, which it most definitively is not, its sleight of hand is astounding—as if some dastardly external agent has brought Muslims unfairly into the spotlight. There is no hint that the repeated, horrific acts of violence committed by Muslims in the name of Islam might have played some role in tarnishing the Islamic brand. In fact, it is the very silence of large segments of the mainstream media about Muslim violence that allows Valiante to make such ridiculous claims, not only that her people have received unjustified negative press but also that special compensation is now necessary to make amends for Islam’s bloody image.

What will Islamic History Month have to say about the Muslim heritage of child-rape, polygamy, honor killing, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, wife abuse, and anti-Semitism that Muslims seem to bring with them wherever their numbers reach sufficient levels (see Raymond Ibrahim’s analysis of the Rule of Numbers (http://www.raymondibrahim.com/islam/islams-rule-of-numbers-and-the-london-beheading/)). These matters, presumably, will not figure at all.

In fact, if dealt with honestly, it might take an entire month to highlight Muslim atrocities on the world stage—they are so numerous and so bloody. Perhaps Muslim immigrants worldwide could aim for one month in which they left their non-Muslim neighbors in peace? And maybe on even one day of that month, they might practice a little healthy self-criticism, asking themselves why Muslims so frequently commit violence in the name of their religion, perhaps even for that one day extend apologies to the host cultures that have taken them in, supported them financially, given them shelter and educational opportunities, and provided refuge from the dysfunctional and violent places they have left.

That’s probably too much to ask.

One can’t blame Muslims in Manitoba or elsewhere for pushing for an Islamic History Month: who doesn’t want one’s culture and religion officially sanctioned, even if the praise comes long before it can, by any reasonable measure, have been earned?

But what do non-Muslims get out of Islamic History Month? Do the members of Manitoba’s provincial legislature really believe Muslim contributions to the province so outstanding? I doubt most could name one not spoon-fed them by Ms. Siddiqui’s organization. Many provincial politicians probably believe they are doing a great thing in affirming Muslim culture, thus showcasing their own credentials as fighters against Islamophobia, that Muslim Brotherhood-manufactured thought crime applied to anyone who recoils at the record of the religion of peace.

And for any amongst the Manitoba ruling elite who might secretly feel uneasy about this record, Islamic History Month is surely a self-protective gesture, a special tribute by non-Muslims in the hope that they may be spared the Muslim “days of rage (http://frontpagemag.com/2013/bruce-bawer/muslim-days-of-rage/)” that are fast destroying many European cities. Will it work? Ask the Christians in Egypt, in Syria, in Gaza, in Pakistan, in Iraq—tiny oppressed minorities who constitute no numerical or political threat to the Islamic dominance of their societies. No mercy has been extended to them. Why should Islamic History Month guarantee inter-ethnic harmony? One thing is for sure: other Canadian provincial assemblies will be receiving visits from delegations eager to see Islamic History Month declared in their provinces too.

Guest Column:
Canada's Growing Islamic Radicalization a Warning Sign

by Abigail R. Esman

Special to IPT News
November 4, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4205/guest-column-canada-growing-islamic


http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/871_large.jpg

The man who calls himself Abu Muslim sits with his fellow fighters, members of the group Katiba al Muhajireen, and raises his rifle for the camera. He has come to Aleppo to fight, he tells (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfYBU4L34Fw) the man who has come to interview him for Britain's Channel 4. A Muslim convert, he – like some 100 others joining the jihad in Syria's civil war – has left his family at home. In Canada.

The United States' neighbor to the north is experiencing a radicalization problem, according to a confidential report by the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS). Made public earlier this year through a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Canada's National Post, the report confirms that "Islamist extremists are now radicalizing Canadians at a large number of venues," ranging from mosques to dinner parties and even the family home.

"Parents have radicalized children, husbands have radicalized wives (and some wives have radicalized or supported their husbands," the study's authors contend, "and siblings have radicalized each other."


Indeed, according to one assessment cited (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/canadians-who-have-fallen-prey-to-islamic-extremism-1.1314368) by the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC), "with the exception of the United States, there are more terrorist groups active in Canada today than in any other country in the world." And while most of their activity is based abroad, a study published earlier this year (http://www.ict.org.il/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=oW6SLTLi5sw%3D&tabid=66) by the International Institute for Counterterrorism (IIC) shows that 25 individuals have developed or been involved in four plots against Canadian targets since 2006. Of these, eight were Canadian born; three were converts to Islam; and 20 – nearly all – were between the ages of 18 and 35. Most were affiliated with al-Qaida. Among them:




The "Toronto 18 (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto-18-key-events-in-the-case-1.715266)," arrested in 2006 for plans to behead Canada's prime minister, along with a host of other schemes, including bombing the Toronto Stock Exchange, the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service office in Toronto, and other targets;
A group of three Muslims, Hiva Mohammad Alizadeh, Misbahuddin Ahmed, and Khurram Syed Sher – a physician and former "Canadian Idol" contestant – accused in 2010 of plotting terrorist attacks (http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/RCMP+Project+Samossa+suspects+were+preparing+build +IEDs/3441574/story.html) and making bombs;
Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser, arrested earlier this year on charges they were planning to bomb (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/charges-against-chiheb-esseghaier-and-raed-jaser-1.1405898) an Amtrak/Via passenger train running between New York and Toronto;
John Nuttail and Amanda Korody, converts charged with planning to celebrate Canada Day (July 1) this year by using pressure cooker bombs (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4190/the-growing-terror-threat-from-radical-women) to blow up the British Columbia Provincial legislature in Victoria.


This does not include the hundreds more suspected of taking part in terrorist attacks abroad, including at least 100 of Canada's jihadists who, like Abu Muslim, have headed off to join the fighting (http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/syria-conflict-attracts-canadians-to-fight-on-front-line-1.1394469) in Syria. (Abu Muslim is now suspected to have taken part in an attack on an Abu Duhur military airport this past summer.) Notably, while the Muslim population of Canada is smaller than that of the U.S., more Canadian than American Muslims are thought to have joined radical groups in the Syrian conflict.

But it isn't just in Syria: Canadian radicals have also been involved in attacks elsewhere: the suicide bombing of a courthouse in Mogodishu; the bombing, by members of Hizballah (http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/07/25/canadian-identified-as-suspect-in-%20deadly-bulgarian-bus-bombing-of-israeli-tourists/), of a bus in Bulgaria carrying a group of Israeli tourists; and the attack on a gas plant (http://www.ict.org.il/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=oW6SLTLi5sw%3D&tabid=66#page=70) in January which killed hundreds of refinery workers in Algeria.

Most visible, and certainly among the most active of these Muslim extremists, is the controversial Khadr family (http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/keeping-up-with-the-khadrs-a-family-tree-1.976666), most or all of whom are alleged to be members of al-Qaida. (Father Ahmed Said Khadr, who emigrated to Canada in 1977 from Egypt and was killed (http://www.ict.org.il/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=oW6SLTLi5sw%3D&tabid=66#page=78) battling Pakistani forces in Afghanistan in 2003, was believed to be an al-Qaida founding member and financier.)

Not all of Canada's Islamic terrorist activity involves violence, however. Financing for foreign terror groups has a long history in the country, as terror expert Ilan Berman testified (http://www.ilanberman.com/9891/hezbollah-in-the-western-hemisphere) before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security in 2011. Other Canadian investigations during the 1990s also revealed connections (http://www.ict.org.il/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=oW6SLTLi5sw%3D&tabid=66#page=43) to Hizballah that "reportedly includes the procurement of funds, human smuggling, especially into the United States, and the provision of safe houses from which future attacks can be plotted." (Whether or not those connections still exist today is unclear.)

What does seem clear, however, is that the radicalization of Canadian Muslims is not only continuing, but growing, as the ICC report indicates. It is a problem moderate Muslims can sense as well; Algerian-born Zakaria Fellah, a U. S. citizen who lived in Canada from 2000-2001, says that there are "hotbeds for – I am careful not to say extremism, but certainly an orthodox view of Islam." Indeed, several high-profile honor killings in Canada, as the IIC report also notes, would seem to confirm the solid presence of orthodox radical Muslims within the Canadian Muslim community.

Yet much of the blame for this, Fellah believes, stems not only from the Muslim community (though several mosques in Canada are known to be connected (http://www.ict.org.il/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=oW6SLTLi5sw%3D&tabid=66#page=45) to extremist groups) but "the lax codes, the accommodation, the multiculturalism charter." That would, for instance, partly explain the 2004 efforts to introduce Sharia tribunals (http://www.theguardian.com/news/blog/2008/feb/08/sharialawincanadaalmost) in Ottawa – a move shockingly supported by former attorney general Marion Boyd. (And given that a 2011 survey (http://www.macdonaldlaurier.ca/files/pdf/What-Do-Muslim-Canadians-Want-November-1-2011.pdf) by Leuprecht and Winn showed that as many as 88 percent of Canadian Muslims support the idea of integrating Sharia law into Canadian society. , the subject is likely to come up again soon. The outcome is anyone's guess.

That alone is an issue that other countries will probably confront as well in the near future; and it stems, in part, from the ease with which radicalization can take place. And it's not just in Canada; as the de-classified CSIS report states, since "radicalization involves the mutual confirmation of extreme views among a group of people, it can take place wherever these people gather" – or, in other words, just about anywhere.
That viewpoint is not foreign to the international counterterrorism community, of course: it accounts for such oft-debated security measures as the monitoring of mosques and tapping of telephones – actions many condemn as "undemocratic."

And yet, consider that the authors of the International Institute for Counterterrorism review have come to one very clear conclusion: that "stopping radicalization is an impossible task." If they are right, then the challenges to world democracy may be greater than we think.

American ISIL Jihadist Abu Dujana before Getting Killed by Syrian


Where did this young man learn his understanding of Islam? Remember: not one mosque or Islamic school in the U.S. has any program to teach young Muslims to reject the "extremist" view of Islam that they supposedly oppose.

Abu Dujana al-Amriki was subsequently killed by the Syrian army.

Dozens of U.S. Muslims have gone to Syria to wage jihad

One of them said, as you can see in the video above, "We've come to spread the Sharia of Allah...and we've come to kill anyone who comes in our way." Where did he get this understanding of jihad and Sharia -- one that Muslim organizations in the U.S. claim to reject?

"U.S. Says Dozens of Americans Have Sought to Join Rebels in Syria," by Eric Schmitt for the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/21/world/middleeast/us-says-dozens-of-americans-have-sought-to-join-rebels-in-syria.html?_r=1&), November 20:
WASHINGTON — Dozens of Americans have traveled or tried to travel to Syria to fight with the rebels against the government of President Bashar al-Assad since 2011, American intelligence officials said Wednesday.

The Americans are a small subset of the mostly radicalized young Muslims with Western passports who are entering Syria from Europe, North America and Australia, a group that numbers roughly 600, according to the officials and classified estimates from Western spy agencies. That represents a fraction of the roughly 6,000 to 11,000 foreign fighters over all who have poured into Syria by way of the Middle East and North Africa.

The Americans’ numbers are small — intelligence officials would not be more precise than saying “dozens” were involved — and they have so far not distinguished themselves on the battlefield. But they are part of what officials said was a growing presence of foreigners who are fighting Mr. Assad’s government.

“It’s a very steady increase, and I expect that to continue as long as the fighting there continues,” a senior American intelligence official said.

He was one of four intelligence officials who spoke in a wide-ranging background briefing for reporters who had requested information on the most current assessments by American and other Western spy agencies of foreigners fighting in Syria, including how they are recruited, trained and financed.

The influx of young Muslims with Western passports into Syria has raised fears among American and European intelligence officials of a new terrorist threat when the fighters return home....

Another Hate Crimes Report Contradicts Islamist Claims

by IPT News

• Nov 26, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4224/another-hate-crimes-report-contradicts-islamist


Hate crimes in the United States decreased in 2012, data released (http://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/fbi-releases-2012-hate-crime-statistics) Monday by the FBI shows.

The annual report, compiled through voluntary reporting from law enforcement agencies, further shows that crimes targeting Muslims remains flat and relatively uncommon. This contradicts claims (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3880/cair-rep-blames-conservative-media-for-rise-in) by Islamist groups that hate crimes against Muslims are spiking, fueled in part by what the groups call an organized effort by groups pushing "Islamophobia."

There were 5,796 reported incidents involving hate crimes during 2012, the report shows. Of those, nearly half involved racial animus. More than 1,800 reported incidents targeted black people – by far the largest group attacked.

In bias crimes involving religion, Jews were targeted in 674 incidents – 62 percent of all religiously-motivated crimes. That's five times more than Muslim Americans, who were targeted in 130 incidents – or fewer than 12 percent of all religiously-motivated crimes. Estimates vary, but there are roughly twice as many Jews in the United States as Muslims.

Anti-Muslim crimes represented 13.3 percent of the religious attacks in 2011 (http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/hate-crime/2011/narratives/incidents-and-offenses).

The number of incidents dropped for each group.

Occasionally, incidents originally touted (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/121.pdf) as hate crimes turn out to be something quite different. In April 2012, a Muslim woman was bludgeoned to death in her home near San Diego. A note found near her body made it seem (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3530/islamists-victimize-alawadi-a-second-time) she was attacked because she was a Muslim woman who wore a hijab. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a statement (http://www.cairchicago.org/2012/04/05/solidarity-and-support-for-shaima-alawadi/) saying the attack showed "the dangers of allowing hateful rhetoric and bigotry to go unpunished, and the fatal consequences that can result."

Shaima Alawadi's husband is scheduled to face trial next year after being charged (http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/husband-arrested-shaima-alawadi-death-article-1.1200078) with her murder.

None of this is to justify or excuse real crimes targeting people because of their faith or to minimize the real threat to innocent life when a mosque is targeted for arson or someone is assaulted because of how they look or how they dress. It's simply an acknowledgement of reality. "Crying wolf" over false hate crimes only compounds the damage done to real victims.

There are hate crimes and they are bad. If the FBI data is accurate, however, the threat facing Muslim Americans is not growing and remains dramatically lower than that facing black people, gays and Jews.

(US) Islamists Hijack Congress Hearing on Hindu Persecution
By Madeline Brooks (http://www.americanthinker.com/madeline_brooks/)

http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/11/how_islamists_stole_a_congressional_hearing.html


Oppressed Hindus from Bangladesh asked for a congressional committee hearing to make known their victimization by Islamists. They got their hearing, but they were not given a chance to speak; instead, Islamists took over.

Not one Hindu was invited to be on the panel of speakers. The Islamists trashed the only political movement in Bangladesh that offers some hope of secularism.

Evidence suggests that an American lobbying firm working for a Bangladeshi war criminal bought influence with the hearing. The same day, the NY Times wrote a staggeringly pro-Islamist editorial, raising the question that perhaps they too were bought with lobbyist money.

On November 20, 2013, a group of loyal Hindu Bangladeshi American citizens were granted a long-awaited hearing by the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee. The Hindus wanted to ask the U.S. to stay the hand of the religious extremists who are pushing their compatriots remaining in Bangladesh toward genocide, described more fully here (http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/11/bangladesh_genocide_now_taliban_soon.html).

Bangladesh is erroneously considered a moderate Muslim country by the State Department. Hindus and other minorities -- Buddhists, Christians, animists, and atheists -- live in continuous anxiety, even terror. Minorities have scant protection against Islamist depredations such as murder, rape, and burning of their houses and places of worship, as well as theft and discrimination in the Bangladeshi legal system. Protection from the police is uncertain, since Bangladeshi police often either ignore minorities' complaints or are themselves the perpetrators. This land, which was once solely inhabited by Hindus and Buddhists, now has a minority population of non-Muslims of only about nine percent. Mass murders, forced conversions, and forced flight account for the drop in numbers.

Right now is an especially frightening time for Bangladeshi minorities, because elections will happen soon. Historically, that has always meant heightened danger, with Muslim mobs attacking vulnerable minorities no matter what the outcome of the election might be.

Two major forces vie for control of Bangladesh: secularists and Muslim fundamentalists. The incumbent party, the Awami League, is nominally secularist and offers some hope for minorities. Opposing it is the Bangladesh National Party, allied with a group called Jamaat-e-Islami, which wants to impose a totalitarian form of Islam on everyone in that country. In the 1971 war of liberation, Jamaat was involved in war crimes against Bangladeshis, especially Hindus, who wanted freedom from Pakistan and Islamic fundamentalism.

The AL is currently conducting trials of the war criminals, which the BNP objects to on procedural grounds. While some of AL's judicial practices may be questionable, at bottom, the BNP wants to spare their Jamaat affiliates from possible execution for their past deeds. The AL views Jamaat as a potential disaster for democracy, much as we would if al-Qaeda were included in our elections, and is trying to keep Jamaat out of the electoral process.

Whatever its flaws might be, the AL is the only present-day bulwark against the Talibanization of Bangladesh.

The contentious issue of the war crimes tribunals so dominated the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=XLXANOPL72A) that the problem of spreading Islamism and the persecution of minorities received short shrift. Although the BNP members did mention minorities in passing, not one Hindu or other minority was on the panel. The drift of the BNP position was that by excluding Jamaat, there would -- somehow, mysteriously -- be disturbances which would destabilize the country and affect minorities, too. BNP sidestepped the intolerance and disrespect for non-Muslims that is the root of the problem. It was a bizarre and revolting reversal of justice.

http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/assets/Mir.png


The hearing appears to have been hijacked. Hindu activists believe that a strong BNP lobby is operating in Washington. It is already established that a major lobbying firm, Cassidy & Associates, represents war criminal Mir Abdul Qasim Ali (http://moneyjihad.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/saudi-backed-tycoon-finances-jamaat-e-islami/) (pictured left), who is held in custody in Bangladesh awaiting trial and possibly execution. Ali was implicated in a wartime killing spree and is a major fundamentalist player. He is a senior member of Jamaat who supports Wahhabist values, and he heads a Saudi-based bank that launders money for Jamaat and terrorists.

http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/assets/Hartley.png

Gregg Hartley (pictured right), vice chairman and CEO of Cassidy & Associates, has been conducting a publicity campaign in Europe and the U.S. to get Ali released from jail, according to his home-state newspaper, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/political-fix/missourian-in-quest-to-free-bangladeshi-newspaper-owner-from-jail/article_edfe4bb2-f71e-5cc1-89e9-31b290cc8558.html%20). Disclosures of lobbyist records show that Cassidy and Associates has received more than $500,000 (http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/political-fix/missourian-in-quest-to-free-bangladeshi-newspaper-owner-from-jail/article_edfe4bb2-f71e-5cc1-89e9-31b290cc8558.html) in the past year from Ali and his very wealthy family.

Hartley's battle to free Ali involves discrediting the purpose as well as the methods of the war crimes tribunals, thereby legitimizing Islamism and its abuses. Hartley also lobbies for Pakistan (http://www.cassidy.com/team/5/) and other Islamist clients, as stated on his firm's website.

Apparently Hartley does not object to working for Islamists, even if they would limit his own freedom if they came to power in the U.S.

An inescapable question arises: was a paid campaign waged to discredit the war crimes tribunal at the Foreign Affairs hearing in order to spare Hartley's client? Were Hindus kept off the panel so that they could not give evidence of the complete Islamist take over Bangladesh is facing, and of the persecution that minorities are suffering even now? This is a very reasonable speculation, and an investigation of Cassidy's activities and finances is in order.

A similar question must be raised about the alarming editorial (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/21/opinion/political-crisis-in-bangladesh.html) in the NY Times published on the same day. The Times lays the blame for Bangladesh's growing instability solely on the AL and states that Jamaat should be legitimized by including it in the upcoming elections.

Remember that Germany voted the Nazis into power. A similar fate could await this vulnerable country, already teetering on the brink of totalitarian Islam. One has to wonder why the NY Times took such a disastrous editorial position.

CAIR’s Tampa Terror Banquet
The infamous “civil-rights” organization features terror-related speakers and raises big bucks.
by Joe Kaufman (http://www.frontpagemag.com/author/joe-kaufman/)


http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/joe-kaufman/cairs-tampa-terror-banquet/


When someone linked to the ’93 bombing of the World Trade Center is a featured speaker at a fundraiser sponsored by a group created by Hamas operatives and run by a Hezbollah defender, one could easily surmise that the function described would be taking place in the Middle East. Yet, this event, which was held this past weekend and raised a large amount of money, took place in a major American city, Tampa, Florida.

On the night of Saturday, November 23rd, the Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Tampa) sponsored a fundraising banquet featuring what should be considered highly controversial figures from the Muslim community. One of these individuals was an imam who goes by the name of Johari Abdul-Malik.

Abdul-Malik is the Outreach Director of Falls Church, Virginia’s Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center. He was brought in to head the mosque, after his predecessor, Anwar al-Awlaki, left the United States to become al-Qaeda’s leader in Yemen. And shortly before Awlaki became the mosque’s imam, Hamas fundraiser Mohammad al-Hanooti held the position. [Today, al-Hanooti is listed on al-Hijrah’s website as the center’s Mufti (http://www.daralhijrah.net/ns/?page_id=5153).] According to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, al-Hijrah itself has been considered by federal law enforcement officials to be a front for Hamas (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1944/government-pays-mosque-it-considers-radical).

Since Abdul-Malik has been employed by al-Hijrah, he has supported and/or defended a number of convicted terrorists. They include: Abdul Rahman al-Amoudi, who was sentenced to 23 years in prison, in part for his role in a plot to assassinate Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah; Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, a former al-Hijrah teacher and camp counselor, who is serving a life prison sentence for providing material support to al-Qaeda and for plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush; and Ali al-Timimi, who received a life prison sentence for instructing his Northern Virginia followers to wage war on the United States.

Another of the featured speakers at CAIR-Tampa’s Saturday banquet (http://www.cairflorida.org/event/banquet9.html#Speakers) was the imam of Brooklyn, New York’s at-Taqwa Mosque, Siraj Wahhaj.

In 1995, Wahhaj was named by the United States government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” for a federal trial dealing with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, an act which resulted in the deaths of six innocent Americans. Wahhaj had been linked to the bomb-maker of the attack, Clement Rodney Hampton-El, and during the trial, he was a character witness for the spiritual leader of the attack, the “Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, whom Wahhaj has openly praised.

This was not the first time CAIR has brought Wahhaj in as a speaker for one of its affairs, so CAIR’s representatives can’t make the excuse that they didn’t know about his insidious background. Indeed, Wahhaj has spoken at a large number of CAIR events and has previously served as a member of CAIR-National’s Board of Advisers.

In reality, no one can expect CAIR to vet terror-related speakers, when the group itself has been, in large part, associated with terrorism.

CAIR was founded in June 1994 as a part of an umbrella organization led by then-global leader of Hamas, Mousa Abu Marzook. In 2007 and 2008, CAIR was named an “unindicted co-conspirator” by the U.S. Justice Department for two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. The three original founders of CAIR, one of which is still the national Executive Director, were coming from the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), the then-American propaganda wing of Hamas. CAIR had used its website to raise funds for the then-American financing arm of Hamas, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF).

Hassan Shibly is the Executive Director of CAIR-Tampa. In June 2011, the Tampa Tribune reported on previous statements Shibly had made regarding Hezbollah (http://tbo.com/news/new-cair-leader-draws-starkly-different-reactions-240304). Shibly had stated that Hezbollah was “basically a resistance movement” and “absolutely not a terrorist organization.” In 1983, Hezbollah perpetrated a suicide attack which resulted in the murders of 241 American troops stationed in Beirut, Lebanon. Today, Hezbollah is involved with the government of Bashar al-Assad in the mass slaughter of Syrian civilians.

CAIR-Tampa’s banquet – deceptively titled ‘Faith in Freedom’ – according to Shibly, raised over $200,000 (http://www.cairflorida.org/blog/thank_you_for_a_successful_banquet.html). With 400 guests attending, that’s over $500 per person.

Terrorism creates fear in itself. That’s its purpose. But the fact that a group associated with such acts of horror could raise so much money inside the United States should put the fear in all of us.

IPT Exclusive:
Jihad-Supporting Imam Raised Millions on U.S. Fundraising Tour

by John Rossomando and Ravi Kumar

IPT News
December 11, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4236/ipt-exclusive-jihad-supporting-imam-raised


http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/907_large.jpg

A Syrian Sunni sheik who raised at least $3.6 million (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Syrian-Sunrise-Foundation/273829269330915?sk=events) during a U.S. fundraising tour last April has blessed (http://inagist.com/all/403898164681248768/) a new coalition of Syrian jihadist groups aiming to replace the Assad regime with an Islamic state (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/22/syria-rebels-islamic-front_n_4324171.html).

Sheik Osama al-Rifai, who raised the money (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Syrian-Sunrise-Foundation/273829269330915?sk=events) for the Franklin, Mich.-based Syrian Sunrise Foundation, endorsed the creation of the Islamic Front in a Nov. 22 YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thtCxJP75sQ&feature=youtu.be) video. The front represents a merger of seven jihadist groups fighting Bashar al-Assad's forces. Many of them have ties to al-Qaida.

"The unification of these great Islamist and jihadist groups is not a normal piece of news, but is a great event that brings the happiness and thrill to every Muslim, not only in Syria but in the whole Islamic world," al-Rifai said in remarks translated by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. "I congratulate this brilliant news; I congratulate the brothers who formed it. I cannot say that we bless this group because it is they who should be blessed by them."

Al-Rifai visited mosques and Islamic community centers in cities across America. He spoke at fundraising dinners on Sunrise Foundation's behalf in Tampa (https://www.facebook.com/events/463127930424905/), Miami (https://www.facebook.com/YouthCoalitionOfSouthFlorida/posts/285156718282858), the Chicago area (https://www.facebook.com/events/585027284842906/?ref=22), Dallas (https://www.facebook.com/events/151632578338002/), Crown Point, Ind., Los Angeles (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=489486184431888&set=a.489486104431896.1073741825.273829269330915&type=1&theater), a Detroit suburb called Novi (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=489486391098534&set=a.489486104431896.1073741825.273829269330915&type=1&theater) and Meadowlands, N.J. (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=489486391098534&set=a.489486104431896.1073741825.273829269330915&type=1&theater)

In Dallas, he said that anyone who works to raise awareness about what is happening in Syria was "a jihadist for Allah."

"Those who are subjecting themselves to martyrdom for the sake of god and who defend themselves and their families, not only them who are performing the jihad, but every single Muslim, Arab, and Syrian who has sympathy toward what happens in Syria," Al-Rifai said. "Every single one of you who give any kind of effort to help his brothers in Syria is a jihadist for Allah, every single one of you who spread the word to raise the awareness among the others about what's happening in Syria is a jihadist for Allah.

"I would love to address my brothers who are in charge of the organizations here like Shaam Relief (http://www.shaamrelief.org/), and Syrian Sunrise Foundation, you must be very aware that you are too performing jihad just like your brothers in Syria."

Calls seeking comment from the Investigative Project to the Syrian Sunrise Foundation and its President Ahmad Alabas were not returned.

The United States and United Kingdom suspended all non-lethal aid (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-25331241) to rebels in northern Syria Wednesday, after the Islamic Front took over bases that had belonged to the western-backed Free Syrian Army.

Officials fear the existing supplies could fall into the jihadists' hands. That assistance could include items such as radios, body armor, transportation and night-vision goggles.

The Syrian Sunrise Foundation's Facebook page states that al-Rifai helped raise $1.5 million in Tampa, $280,000 in Miami, $320,000 in Indiana, and $1.5 million in the Detroit area.

He spoke April 5 at the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview, Ill. Two mosque leaders, Kifa Mustapha (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/440.pdf) and Jamal Said, were implicated in a previous terror-support investigation. Said appears on a telephone list (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/701.pdf#page=4) for the "Palestine Committee (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/24.pdf#page=7)," a Muslim Brotherhood umbrella group charged with supporting Hamas politically and financially. Mustapha was a paid fundraiser (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/Kifah%20Mustapha%20Extract.jpg) for one of the committee's branches, raising more than $300,000 for the Holy Land Foundation (http://www.investigativeproject.org/case/65). Five foundation officials were convicted in 2008 (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/957.pdf) of providing material support for Hamas.

The Syrian Sunrise Foundation likely brought al-Rifai to the U.S. due to his reputation inside Syria as the head of a movement with a large charitable operation.

Its website says (https://syriansunrisefoundation.org/about-us/history) that it aims "to send aid to families, orphans, and widows affected by the conflict." The group claims to have a "well-established humanitarian network of hundreds of workers" and denies having any sort of "any political, religious, or any other agenda."

In June, al-Rifai participated in a conference in Cairo in June (http://library.fes.de/pdf-files/bueros/amman/10236.pdf#page-51) that supported overthrowing Assad.

The conference was also attended by radical Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi (http://www.dailynewsegypt.com/2013/06/14/morsi-discusses-syria-with-islamic-scholars/) and former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi. The conference closed with a statement by an Egyptian cleric, Sheikh Mohamed Hassan, saying, "We're obliged to jihad in order to assist our brothers in Syria, with fighters, funding and arms."

And al-Rifai made vicious anti-Semitic statements in a 2010 speech (http://www.sadazaid.com/sounds/osama/khotab/qron/091.mp3), blaming Jews as "absolute evil" for corrupting society.

"Each time they lived with any nation, they subjected this nation to a curse, and they don't have any friends among the whole nations," he said. "This friendship between the Jews and the West is a fake and fabricated one. All the politicians and the intellectuals in the West are aware of this ... but because of political pressure they cannot admit that. If they were really free, they would kick Israel with their legs."

Jews corrupted Western women "through Freud," al-Rifai said before invoking a classic anti-Semitic forgery: "And the Jews mention in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion that all the nations are the donkeys of the Jews, and that they cannot humiliate and ride these donkeys until they can corrupt them. This is in the Elders of Zion, and I ask the God to give me the capability to explain all of that."

A Fundamentalist Charter
Al-Rifai frequently speaks about morality and uniting all Syrians, but endorses a coalition that opposes those ideals. The coalition al-Rifai now supports could have as many as 45,000 men under its command, IHS Jane's estimates.

Most of the factions that make up the Islamic Front, including its leadership, have had close relations with Al-Qaida's Syrian branches, Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria. They have issued statements (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lp8_cym39eY&feature=youtube_gdata_player) expressing appreciation of the Syrian al-Qaida branch.

"This independent political, military and social formation aims to topple the Assad regime completely and build an Islamic state where the sovereignty of almighty God alone will be our reference and ruler," Ahmed Abu Eissa, leader of the Suqour al-Sham Brigades, said in a Reuters report (http://mobile.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSBRE9AL0T420131122) following the Islamic Front's creation.

The new coalition's charter (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/775.pdf#page=7) rejects secularism as contrary to Islam, saying that it divides "religion from life and society" and reduces it "exclusively to rituals, customs and traditions." Its leaders claim that they would not institute an "oppressive, authoritarian system," saying Syria should be ruled by an Islamic consultative council or shura (http://binbayyah.net/english/2012/02/05/shura-consultation-and-democracy/).

"[The Islamic Front] does not participate in any political process contrary to religion or which give sovereignty to anything other than the Law of God Almighty, with the political process which does not recognize that legislation is the right of God alone," the charter says. "The Front cannot participate in, recognize or rely on it, for religion without politics is forbidden in our religion, and politics without religion is rejected secularization."

Zahran Alloush, leader of Jaish al-Islam and chief of military operations for the Islamic Front, solicited foreign fighters to come fight for his faction in a 7 tweet. He also called for resurrecting the caliphate in a July 25 YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIFrWG9PQTc) in which he also advocated cleansing Syria of Shiites and Alawites. Videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YbRKNtnOIM) show his fighters flying the jihadist black flag rather than the pre-Ba'ath Syrian flag used by the Western-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) and its allies.

Alloush was also a member of the FSA military council (http://www.understandingwar.org/sites/default/files/Selected-Supreme-Military-Command-Members.pdf) along with Sheik Ahmed Issa, who heads Suquor al-Sham. Both quit Tuesday (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/776.pdf) and issued a declaration announcing their withdrawal from the body. Zaman Alawsl, an Internet newspaper focusing on the Syrian Civil War, reports (http://www.zamanalwsl.net/en/news/2772.html) that the declaration came hours after FSA Chief of Staff Gen. Salim Idris allegedly told a British newspaper that the FSA would fight Jabhat al-Nusra and other Islamic extremist groups should Assad fall.

Fighters from Harakat Ahrar al-Sham have fought alongside Jabhat al-Nusra. The two groups coordinated the September attack against the ancient Christian town of Ma'aoula (http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/security/2013/09/syria-christians-maaloula-jihadists-opposition-army.html). Ahrar Al-Sham also has worked with the Free Syrian Army and with the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood (http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2013/03/13/how_the_muslim_brotherhood_hijacked_syria_s_revolu tion?page=0,0).

Hassan Aboud, the head of Ahrar Al-Sham, told Al-Jazeera (http://www.aljazeera.net/programs/pages/28fb39ff-06ea-47c9-a1ae-ec7dc64fd624) in a June 8 interview that his group had previously taken part in a number of joint operations with Jabhat al-Nusra.

He agreed with the al-Qaida affiliate that "Islam is the precept for actions," but his group's only differences with it al-Nusra came down to tactics and some provisions.

He expressed the same sort of opposition to democracy found in the Islamic Front's charter.

"Democracy is people governing people, according to rules they please," Aboud said. "We say that we have a divine system whose law is Allah's for his creatures and his slaves who he appointed as viceregents on this Earth."

Abu Muhammed al-Husseini, the head of al-Sham's political office in Raqqa, told Reuters (http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/06/20/us-syria-rebels-governance-specialreport-idUSBRE95J05R20130620) in July that his group had no major disagreements with al-Nusra, but only differs with it when it comes to "operational details."

Suquor al-Sham signed a declaration (http://www.joshualandis.com/blog/major-rebel-factions-drop-exiles-go-full-islamist/) with Jabhat al-Nusra in September defining their goal as obtaining "the rule of sharia and making it the sole source of legislation" and that those groups opposed to the Assad regime should operate within "an Islamic framework." It was also signed by Islamic Front members Ahrar al-Sham, the Tawhid Brigade and Jaish Al Islam.

Suquor al-Sham has been involved in beheadings, such as one of a Syrian civilian shown in a YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV_SanKfxno&bpctr=1386135831) from February.

Issa, like others in the Islamic Front, has a dim view of secular democracy. "We do not want people to be ruled by statutory laws cited by humans, whether right or wrong," he said in a June 15 interview with Al-Jazeera (http://www.aljazeera.net/programs/pages/c0a14ad9-f98d-4024-93ac-760599bad2bc).

Al-Rifai and the Syrian Sunrise Foundation
Al-Rifai was involved in the Muslim Brotherhood's 1979-1982 uprising (http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2012/02/03/192297.html) against dictator Hafez al-Assad. He lived in exile in Saudi Arabia for about 15 years before returning to Syria in 2000.

He previously held friendly relations (http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2013/10/syria-sufi-salafi-war-islam.html) with Bashar al-Assad, so much so that the Syrian president personally visited him in 2002 out of respect for his personal stature in Syria. That changed in August 2011 (http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/08/28/us-syria-idUSTRE77P12M20110828?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+reuters%2FworldNews+%28News+% 2F+US+%2F+International%29), after Syrian security forces (http://freehalab.wordpress.com/2011/08/28/shaykh-usama-al-rifai-in-the-hospital/) stormed al-Rifai's mosque in Damascus, which was one of the main locations for anti-Assad protesters in the early days of the uprising.

Al-Rifai leads the Zayd Movement, a Sufi faction with 20,000 followers (http://carnegieendowment.org/files/muslim_bro_comback.pdf#page=21) and is said to control 450 mosques in Syria. Zayd runs charities around Damascus that provide food for needy families. The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood has actively sought to build an alliance with al-Rifai and Zayd in an effort to regain influence in Damascus.

Although Zayd is not part of the Muslim Brotherhood or connected with it, both share "the same school of thought," (http://carnegieendowment.org/2013/05/15/muslim-brotherhood-prepares-for-comeback-in-syria/g3hz?reloadFlag=1) according to a member of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood who spoke with the Carnegie Endowment.

Al-Rifai's recent endorsement of the Islamic Front and the blurry lines between the Sunni factions fighting to topple the Assad regime and the millions it has raised in the United States raises certain questions. That includes the millions raised by the Syrian Sunrise Foundation.

Once the money leaves the United States it becomes next to impossible to track. This is especially true of a warzone such as Syria.

The Holy Land Foundation example stands as a case and point. The charity claimed it merely routed aid to needy Palestinians, but evidence presented during the trial showed millions of dollars were sent to groups controlled by Hamas.

"The purpose of creating the Holy Land Foundation was as a fundraising arm for Hamas," U.S. District Judge Jorge Solis said (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1046/hlf-founders-sentenced-to-long-prison-terms) during a 2009 sentencing hearing.

The Syrian Sunrise Foundation markets itself with a similar message of helping the needy.

But it raised millions of dollars with a Syrian cleric who now supports a jihadist coalition tied to al-Qaida, and someone whose anti-Semitic rantings were known years before his American tour. Syria's civil war created an enormous humanitarian crisis.

Al-Rifai's solution – embracing brutal jihadists – offers little hope of making things better.

Same ISNA, Same Terror
ISNA Canada loses its tax status because of terrorist financing.
by Joe Kaufman (http://www.frontpagemag.com/author/joe-kaufman/)

http://www.frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/isba.gif


http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/joe-kaufman/same-isna-same-terror/


The Islamic Society of North America or ISNA, as its name implies, is a function of both the United States and Canada. Given that that is the case, a question might arise as to whether the group operates as two separate entities, one in each of its respective countries, or one single organization. And if the two entities are actually one, if one part has action taken against it regarding a terror-related matter, should not the other suffer the same fate or should it instead be embraced by the government?

In September of this year, following an audit it had done of ISNA, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), an arm of the Canadian government, stripped the group of its charitable tax status (http://www.torontosun.com/2013/09/20/islamic-groups-charitable-status-revoked-over-alleged-link-to-terror-organization). According to the CRA, ISNA had a “funding arrangement” with the Kashmiri Canadian Council/Kashmiri Relief Fund of Canada, a charity run by Jamaat-e-Islami, which is the largest Islamist group in South Asia.

Jamaat-e-Islami has been associated with terrorist funding before. In August 2006, the group’s main charity, the al-Khidmat Foundation, led a delegation to Damascus, Syria to hand $6 million rupees ($99,000 U.S.) (http://www.americansagainsthate.org/ICNA_Financing_Hamas.html) to the global head of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal, at Meshaal’s then-Syrian residence. The delegation delivered a “special message” from Jamaat-e-Islami’s then-Amir (President) Qazi Hussain Ahmad to the Hamas leader. Meshaal thanked them for the gift and said Hamas would continue to wage jihad (war) against Israel.

As well, Jamaat-e-Islami supports the overthrow of the Indian government through its militant wing, Hizbul Mujahideen, an outfit that has been involved in numerous terrorist attacks against Indian troops and civilians alike.

Hizbul Mujahideen became known globally, when reports surfaced showing that it held ownership of the Pakistani compound (http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/hizbul-mujahideen-owned-hideout-of-osama-in-pak-report/1/137083.html) where Osama bin Laden was hiding/living and where he later was found/killed. Yet, while Hizbul Mujahideen is considered a terrorist organization by the European Union and India, the U.S. government does not recognize it as such. Nor does the U.S. government recognize any of the other aforementioned groups as terrorist organizations.

And while ISNA has lost its tax status in Canada, the group has only been embraced by the White House. ISNA has boasted about its ability to arrange White House tours and brief White House staff, and highlights from one of ISNA’s conferences are discussed right on the White House website (http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/07/07/highlights-islamic-society-north-america-s-48th-annual-convention).

It wasn’t always like this. Similar to its Canadian counterpart, the U.S. office of ISNA has been implicated in the financing of terrorism.

In 2007 and 2008, ISNA, along with a cadre of other Islamist groups and individuals, was named by the United States Justice Department (http://www.nysun.com/national/islamic-groups-named-in-hamas-funding-case/55778/) as a co-conspirator to two federal trials dealing with the financing of millions of dollars to Hamas. The defendants of the trials were the leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) and HLF itself. In the end, each was found guilty of all charges.

There was good reason for ISNA to be named. For years, since the HLF charity was established in 1987 as the Occupied Land Fund (OLF), the terror group advertised its Plainfield, Indiana mailing address as the same one being used (to this day) by ISNA. ISNA’s main youth group, the Muslim Students Association (MSA), asked for donations to be sent to the address in OLF’s name.

Even now, ISNA places full color, full page ads in its magazine, Islamic Horizons, for Muslim charities associated with terrorism. This month’s issue includes ads for: (http://issuu.com/isnacreative/docs/ih_nov-dec_13)


Helping Hand, a partner organization to Jamaat-e-Islami’s al-Khidmat, at the time when the group traveled to Syria to give the $99,000 to the head of Hamas
Islamic Relief, a former financier of millions of dollars to al-Qaeda-related Chechen rebels and a charity that Israel has labeled a front for Hamas (http://www.theguardian.com/society/2006/may/31/voluntarysector.israel)
International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a former financier of a Palestinian Islamic Jihad front and a charity that had its offices raided by the FBI in a March 2002 terror probe
Mercy-USA, a group that has had a number of terror-related individuals serve as board members, including convicted terrorist Abdurahman Alamoudi, and the U.S. office of Mercy International, a charity implicated in the al-Qaeda-perpetrated 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania
According to ISNA’s main website, the organization has two Vice Presidents, one for the U.S., Azhar Azeez, and one for Canada, Mohamed Bekkari. However, the site shows that it only has one President (http://www.isna.net/board-of-directors.html), that being Mohamed Magid.

Magid has become dangerously close to the U.S. government, so much so that he has been appointed to a position administered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), ironically as a member of a working group dealing with “countering violent extremism.” (http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/hsac_cve_working_group_recommendations.pdf)

Placing a terror-associated Islamist, as is Magid, in such a position of power could have negative effects on both American national security and American foreign policy. We may not realize how much damage has already been done because of appointments like this.

Canada, for its part, has recognized that Magid’s organization is a threat to society. A sane policy would be for the U.S. to follow suit, as both ISNA Canada and ISNA USA suffer from the identical radical Islamic malady.

Indeed, they are one and the same.

Chilling Effect for Me, But Not for Thee

Intisar A. Rabb



Chilling Effect for Me, But Not for Thee


by Andrew E. Harrod

“I don’t apply the same standards” as in the United States, the Muslim Harvard Law School professor Intisar A. Rabb (http://www.law.harvard.edu/news/2013/09/17_intisar-a-rabb-to-join-hls-faculty.html) stated at a November 21, 2013, Georgetown University conference with respect to “hate speech” restrictions and Islam abroad. In connection with her concern about an American Muslim’s terrorism conviction “chilling speech,” Rabb’s acceptance of “just a different legal regime” abroad revealed troubling double standards towards Islam.

Raab addressed the final panel of “Muslim-Christian Relations in the 21st Century: Challenges & Opportunities (http://www.eventbrite.com/e/acmcu-20th-anniversary-conference-muslim-christian-relations-in-the-21st-century-challenges-registration-8854631441),” a controversial conference (see here (http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/andrew-harrod/karen-armstrongs-911-british-empire-blowback-thesis/), here (http://freebeacon.com/georgetown-university-hosts-911-truther/), and here (http://juicyecumenism.com/2013/12/04/georgetown-universitys-one-way-street-of-christian-muslim-understanding/)) marking the 20th anniversary of Georgetown’s Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (http://cmcu.georgetown.edu/) (ACMCU). Rabb opposed a recent appeals court conviction affirmation for Tarek Mehanna (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4212/mehanna-ruling-draws-line-between-speech), as elaborated in an amici curia brief in Mehanna’s appeal (http://www.orrick.com/Events-and-Publications/Pages/default.aspx?SearchType=Both&Keyword=Tarek%20Mehanna). Therein Rabb and others warned of a “serious chilling effect” on speech from convicting Mehanna for translating the book 39 Ways to Serve and Participate in Jihad (http://www.archive.org/stream/39WaysToServeAndParticipate/39WaysToServeAndParticipateInJihad_djvu.txt) for the website at-Tibyan (http://at-tibyan.com/).

The federal government considered the book, website, and Mehanna’s “disfavored political and religious beliefs” all supportive of Al Qaeda. The appellate opinion (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2264.pdf#page=7) noted that Mehanna had a First Amendment (http://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/first_amendment?quicktabs_10=0#quicktabs-10) right to praise Al Qaeda, but Al-Qaeda-coordinated advocacy was terrorism support. “Under the Government’s theory,” amici curia warned, “translating an al-Qa’ida text is lawful, as is espousing beliefs…supporting al-Qa’ida,” but together these “legal acts gives rise to criminal liability,” a particular concern for scholars researching terrorism.

Rabb at Georgetown therefore demanded that action beyond speech underlie any terrorism support conviction. Yet, unmentioned by Rabb, Mehanna had traveled in 2004 to Yemen, irrespective of any translation work charge. The appeals court rejected his “rose-colored glasses” presentation as a “devoted scholar…protected by the First Amendment” and found a jury conclusion “virtually unarguable” that Mehanna “went abroad to enlist in...terrorist training.”

Legal issues aside, amici curiae did not consider Mehanna’s reading and website choices objectionable. At-Tibyan, for example, “primarily” concerned “Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abu_Muhammad_al-Maqdisi)…a theologian and a jurist” who “endorses rebellion against…illegitimate Muslim regimes.” Among “innumerable mainstream theological texts,”39 Ways also involved “basic…Sunni jurisprudence,” namely the “individual duty (fard ‘ayn) incumbent on all Muslims” to “contribute to wars of self-defense.” “All collections of the words and deeds of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad (hadith) and all Islamic law books” endorsed this “standard position in all Sunni legal schools.”

The amici curiae cited a 2003 fatwa (http://www.onislam.net/english/ask-the-scholar/international-relations-andjihad/jihad-rulings-and-regulations/174990.html?Regulations) from “mainstream Muftis” at OnIslam (http://www.onislam.net/english/), “[o]ne of the most popular websites in the English-speaking world devoted to Islam.” The muftis considered whether for Muslims it is “necessary to fight alongside Afghans” or otherwise resist American-led forces in Afghanistan. Citing Quran verses legitimating fighting against non-Muslims, the muftis answered that the “Muslim Ummah (nation) is considered one body, which if a single organ aches all the other organs will share the feelings of agony.”

Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/about-robert-spencer.html) of the website Jihadwatch (http://www.jihadwatch.org/) could not have explained such doctrines of jihad in a more troubling manner (http://www.jihadwatch.org/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/br0nc0s/managed-mt/mt-srch.cgi?search=fard+ayn&IncludeBlogs=1&limit=20). Questions in the brief about targeting civilians aside, the cited Islamic doctrine justified the killing of military personnel “attacking” Muslim nations, cold comfort to, among others, beheaded British soldier Lee Rigby (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Lee_Rigby) or the 13 Americans of the Fort Hood shooting (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/subjects/f/fort_hood_texas/index.html). Rabb’s brief could only confirm the criticisms of Islam by individuals like Spencer or Holland’s Geert Wilders (http://www.geertwilders.nl/) and incite Terry Jones (http://www.doveworld.org/) to burn another Quran.

Unlike Rabb, though, Spencer has faced exclusion from the United Kingdom (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23064355) and Wilders criminal prosecution in Holland (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-13883331) for their comments on Islam, while destroying a Quran is prohibited hate speech in countries like Belgium (http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/andrew-harrod/thrown-in-prison-for-shredding-the-koran/). Such domestic legal actions accord with the longstanding international agenda (http://jonathanturley.org/2011/12/13/criminalizing-intolerance-obama-administration-moves-forward-on-united-nations-resolution-targeting-anti-religious-speech/) of majority-Muslim nations in the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (http://www.oic-oci.org/oicv2/home/) (OIC) to prohibit criticizing Islam. This agenda has culminated in the March 24, 2011, United Nations Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18 (http://www.refworld.org/pdfid/4db960f92.pdf) with troubling implications for free speech even after Western-induced modifications.

In this context, Rabb’s invocation of the proverbial “chilling effect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilling_effect)” on free speech prompted my question about criticizing Islam. Rabb’s “each regime is different” response allowed for “dignity laws” as a “prerogative” for other democracies dealing with anti-Islam speech grouped by her with Nazism. Muslim-majority countries also had such laws, Rabb indicated, a worrying statement in light of Islamic blasphemy laws (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-12621225).

Critical issues involving Islam, however, were not absent from the conference. George Soros-financed (http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/george-soross-evangelicals) leftist evangelical Richard Cizek (http://www.newevangelicalpartnership.org/?q=node/6), for example, recalled during a panel how a fellow evangelical had once told him that “insults in Lynchburg produce riots in Lahore.” Convicted terrorism financier Sami Al-Arian (http://www.investigativeproject.org/profile/100), meanwhile, discussed with me in the audience viewing the conference’s morning segment before going home to comply with his house arrest.

“Islamophobia” critic Nathan Lean (http://nathanlean.com/) was also in the audience. Called a “stalker” by Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/international-islamophobia-conference-promotes-sharia-agenda.html), Lean has repeatedly tweeted an article supposedly containing Spencer’s address and wife’s picture, a “clear attempt to intimidate me.” Addressed by me on this matter, Lean curtly replied that it is “not appropriate” to discuss Spencer at a Christian-Muslim understanding conference and walked away.

Thus Lean, Rabb, and others, concerned about fundamentally necessary anti-terrorism laws infringing intellectual inquiry in the United States, exhibited little principled concern about uninhibited discussion of Islam. Yet as the conference and Mehanna’s conviction show, the needs of security and liberty demand robust debate precisely with respect to Islam.

The Muslim Who Amputated His Hands, ‘According to Sharia’
Ali Afifi wishes that authorities would implement Sharia as he applied it to himself.
by Raymond Ibrahim (http://www.frontpagemag.com/author/raymond-ibrahim/)


http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/raymond-ibrahim/the-muslim-who-amputated-his-hands-according-to-sharia/


Last week, December 5, Arabic news website Masrawy (http://www.masrawy.com/News/reports/2013/december/5/5774683.aspx) published a full report and interview with Ali Afifi, an Egyptian man who did just that—violently cut off both his hands to punish himself for, and prevent himself from, stealing, “according to Islamic Sharia.” A summary of the report follows:

Four years ago, in Elgharbeya province, Egypt, 28-year-old Ali Afifi placed his left hand on the train tracks to be amputated by the wheels of the train without using any anesthetics.

Upon reviving, he went to the townspeople showing the stump of his bloodied arm while yelling at the top of his lungs, “People, I was a thief, and praise Allah, he has forgiven me.” He repeated this multiple times, while passersby looked shocked.

Normative Islamic law calls for the amputation of the hands of thieves, per Koran 5:38.

Ali began his career as a thief at a very young age; however, one day he decided to stop being a thief and to find honest work. Despite his best efforts, the harder he tried to quit stealing the more intense was the comeback. He was unable to overcome “the devil’s whisperings” in his ears.

According to Ali: “I started at a young age. In first grade I stole other students’ pens and sandwiches. When I grew up, I began to steal cell phones, gold, and money. I performed over one hundred robberies and was arrested multiple times, but I was a smart thief, always able to avoid making the charges stick.”

Ali’s dad works as a Muezzin at one of the mosques and tried many times to dissuade him from being a thief, which caused problems between them. Ali’s father took him to many Muslim sheikhs and clerics, and Ali asked them to amputate his hand in accordance with Islamic Sharia. The sheikhs refused, claiming that only the ruler can make such rulings, and that there are authorities responsible for dealing with such issues. One of the sheikhs encouraged Ali to repent once and for all.

Ali said angrily, “Most of these sheikhs traded with religion and refused to implement the Sharia [law] of Allah.”

The problems between Ali and his father continued, until his dad decided to take him to a psychiatric center to help him quit stealing. But this also failed, because Ali continued to steal with his right hand (after he amputated his left hand).

Said Ali: “I saw that I did not deserve Allah’s mercy unless I amputated my other hand. Shortly before January’s revolution, I myself amputated my right hand using the same method I used for amputating my left hand [placing it under a speeding train]. I did this because I discovered that nothing was changing; I cannot repent unless I amputate my hand. Thus, I became the authority [sultan], judge, and executioner.”

Ali continued: “I went to the railroad tracks with joy, placing my right hand under the wheels of the train, experiencing peace of mind knowing that I will not steal again. Despite feeling this peace of mind as a result of my repentance to Allah, my family and neighbors were in shock.”

Ali now lives with his family, consisting of his parents and four siblings, in a modest home. He says with sorrow, “I only receive 215 Egyptian pounds from the department of Social Affairs, but I cannot live on this amount of money.”

The repentant thief asks the government to provide honest work for him, or a special stipend, and an apartment to help him build a new life, so that he can support his family and get married. He also requested that King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia host him, since he is the first thief in the world to apply Islamic Sharia upon himself.

Ali also prays that he becomes a role model for every repentant Muslim. And he wishes that authorities would implement Islamic Sharia as he applied it to himself, adding with disappointment, “I applied the punishment of Islamic Sharia on myself and amputated my hands, but the Muslim Brotherhood did not implement Islamic Sharia.”

While many in the West will deem Ali “insane,” it is important to note that, according to Islamic Sharia—which those clerics he consulted with are learned in—insane thieves should not (http://spa.qibla.com/issue_view.asp?HD=1&ID=1895&CATE=12) have their hands amputated, suggesting that those clerics who tried to dissuade him did not deem him insane.

Wichita Airport jihad plotter: "I have become 'radicalized' in the strongest sense of the word, and I don't feel Allah wants me any other way"

As Pamela Geller notes (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/12/feds-disrupt-jihad-homicide-bomb-plot-at-wichita-airport.html), this report goes out of its way to say that Loewen is white, as the media continues to pretend that jihad terror has something to do with race rather than with religious belief and ideology.

In any case, the Feds should be asking why it was apparently so easy for him to become "radicalized," and what prompted his "radicalization." But that could lead them into uncomfortable areas about Islam that they do not wish to examine; to do so would be "Islamophobic."

"Feds say they disrupted suicide bomb plot by worker at Wichita airport," by Pete Williams for NBC News (http://investigations.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/12/13/21891923-feds-say-they-disrupted-suicide-bomb-plot-by-worker-at-wichita-airport?lite), December 13 (thanks to Pamela Geller (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/12/feds-disrupt-jihad-homicide-bomb-plot-at-wichita-airport.html)):
A 58-year-old airport worker was charged Friday with allegedly planning a suicide bombing at a passenger terminal at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in Kansas.

The suspect, Terry Lee Loewen, an avionics technician who lives in Wichita, was arrested earlier in the day as he attempted to use his security pass to drive a vehicle that he thought contained explosives onto the tarmac at the airport, law enforcement officials said at a news conference in Wichita. In fact, the car contained only dummy explosives.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Loewen spent months developing a plan to drive a carload of explosives to the airport terminal and that he was determined to trigger the bomb himself and die in the blast.

Loewen, who is white, became radicalized after reading extremist Islamic material on the Internet, Grissom said.

A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Wichita charges Loewen with one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, one count of attempting to damage property by means of an explosive and one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. He was scheduled to be arraigned at 3 p.m. local time.

If convicted on all counts, he faces a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Investigators tell NBC News that Loewen has been under scrutiny since August, when he began having an online exchange with someone he thought was a like-minded individual but who turned out to be an FBI employee.

"Let me preface the bottom line by saying I have become 'radicalized' in the strongest sense of the word, and I don't feel Allah wants me any other way," he said in one message, according to the complaint....

Canada: Muslim Cabbies Refuse Blind With Dogs
Muslim taxi cab drivers claim they can't drive blind people with dogs because in Islam dogs are considered 'unclean.'
By Dalit Halevi, Ari Yashar

Guide dog
Flash 90

In Saskatoon, Canada, Muslim taxi drivers are refusing to give rides to blind people with seeing-eye dogs. The drivers have been citing religious grounds, saying dogs are considered "unclean" animals in Islam.

Mike Simmonds, who has been blind for close to 10 years, requires a guide dog with him at all times. He reported to the Sun newspaper that he is bitterly disappointed after taxi drivers at the station by his home have repeatedly refused to give him a ride.

Simmonds turned to the taxi company's management, and was told that the company has no guidelines forbidding discrimination against dog owners. After he was refused by taxis 3 times, Simmonds submitted a complaint to the Saskatchewan Committee of Human Rights.

Muslim antagonism towards dogs is not a new thing in Canada. In 2012, Toronto police arrested a Jew (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/159163) after he shoved back a Muslim who had punched him for not moving his “unclean” dog further away from Muslim women during an anti-Israel rally.

Canine cruelty in the Muslim world was highlighted during the Muslim Brotherhood protests in Egypt, as in late October protesters were found to be using "puppy bombs (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/173343)" by dipping dogs in gasoline and setting them on fire.

The judge noted that they showed no remorse. And why should they? They no doubt still believe that they were doing the right thing in serving Allah. "Alabama men convicted on terrorism charges get 15-year prison terms," by Kaija Wilkinson for Reuters (http://news.yahoo.com/alabama-men-convicted-terrorism-charges-15-prison-terms-192811442.html;_ylt=A0oG7mXUuLRSSQUAi.pXNyoA;_ylu= X3oDMTEzaTg1dDdrBHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2FjMgR2dG lkA1ZJUDI5M18x), December 20:
MOBILE, Alabama (Reuters) - Two men accused of plotting to wage violent holy war overseas were sentenced to 15 years in prison each on Friday by a federal judge in Alabama who said their lack of remorse made it likely they would conspire to commit such acts again.

Randy "Rasheed" Wilson and Mohammad Abdul Rahman Abukhdair got the maximum punishment after pleading guilty earlier this year to charges of conspiring to provide "material support to terrorists."

U.S. District Judge Kristi DuBose said she pored over hundreds of hours of recorded conversations and emails between Wilson and Abukhdair and concluded they had conceived a "well-researched plan" to support jihad. They also spoke of killing Americans to further their cause, the judge said.

The men were in the process of putting their plan into motion when they bought airplane tickets to Morocco and were trying to leave the country when they were arrested in separate locations in Georgia in December 2012, DuBose said at the hearing in Mobile.

"Most people in this courtroom support people's right to have whatever beliefs they want," she said. "But when a religion requires you to murder, that is crossing the line."
One would think. But to say so would be "Islamophobic."

MPAC Peddles Debunked Gaza Dam Story

by IPT News

• Dec 20, 2013
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4246/mpac-peddles-debunked-gaza-dam-story


The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) is promoting a story accusing Israel of opening a dam during a freak winter storm (http://www.haaretz.com/news/middle-east/1.563510), causing massive flooding in the Gaza Strip.

http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/909_large.jpg

"On Monday, Israel opened the Wadi Sofa dam in the south Gaza Strip that flooded Gazan towns and displaced approximately 10,000 (http://mpac.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=e014a81e242144808686817e6&id=cf5267cbf2&e=ae226592af) Gazans from their homes leading the United Nations to label it a "disaster area (http://mpac.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=e014a81e242144808686817e6&id=f0270f6cc6&e=ae226592af)," the article says.

MPAC posted the article (http://www.mpac.org/programs/government-relations/dc-news-and-views/floods-and-boycotts-direct-u.s.-to-address-occupation.php#.UrSVT7SQPKd) Friday and also sent it on the group's email list.
The problem is that the dam doesn't seem to exist, and the story, originally pushed by Hamas, was debunked (http://www.timesofisrael.com/how-hamas-used-the-weather-to-defame-israel/) days ago by the Times of Israel.

A spokesman for Israel's Water Authority told the newspaper that the story is "baseless and false" and that Israel has no dams in that area. The flooding is real (http://photoblog.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/12/18/21951919-gaza-floods-force-thousands-to-flee-their-homes?lite), but caused by overflowing reservoirs after 10 inches of rain fell in a three-day period. That's 60 percent of the normal annual rainfall in the area.

While the dam story first came from Hamas's Disaster Response Committee chairman, the Times' story quotes Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook acknowledging Israel tried to help in the storm's wake.

"The Zionists, of course, have taken advantage of the situation, sending some pumps and supplies which they had deprived the besieged Gaza Strip of," Marzook wrote on his Facebook page Sunday.

This isn't the first time MPAC burned itself by promoting questionable material. Last year, it linked to an article defending (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3544/mpac-reposts-pro-terrorist-article) convicted terrorist Tarek Mehanna (http://www.investigativeproject.org/case/282), arguing he was a victim of "a hysterical witch-hunt for 'radical' Muslims." Mehanna's conviction for providing support to al-Qaida and conspiring to commit murder abroad was upheld (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4212/mehanna-ruling-draws-line-between-speech) last month by the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals in Massachusetts.

He traveled to Yemen in hopes of receiving jihad training. When that didn't work, he returned to Massachusetts and posted translations of material supporting al-Qaida and "Salafi-Jihadi perspectives."

Evidence showed Mehanna's work was "in response to Al-Qa'ida's call," prosecutors wrote (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2181.pdf#page=47), "and that he was pleased to be associated with Al-Qa'ida through his work."

Past MPAC position papers criticized (http://www.mpac.org/assets/docs/publications/counterterrorism-policy-paper.pdf#page=70) American terrorist designations for Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and called (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/92.pdf#page=3) the 1983 Hizballah bombing of a U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon during a peacekeeping operation, "exactly the kind of attack that Americans might have lauded had it been directed against Washington's enemies."

MPAC enjoys good relations (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3576/mainstream-islamist-group-attacks-law-enforcement) with the White House and other politicians and is considered influential on policy (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3777/a-red-carpet-for-radicals-at-the-white-house). It's a wonder, given the organization's reckless tendency to embrace terror suspects and promote baseless allegations.

CAIR Intimidates Opponents With New Tactic: 'Lawfare'


Lawfare's objective isn't to win the case. It's to punish critics, deter future opponents and make an adversary toxic.

By Ryan Mauro

Wed, December 11, 2013


http://1-ps.googleusercontent.com/h/www.clarionproject.org/sites/default/files/xCAIRReleasesReportHP_5.jpg.pagespeed.ic.BAmYbW0H_-.jpg
Executive Director and Founder of CAIR Nihad Awad (left) with Corey Saylor, national legislative director of CAIR, at a press conference called by CAIR to release CAIR's latest report, “Legislating Fear: Islamophobia and Its Impact in the United States." The report was another tactic designed to silence critics.



A new study (https://cfns.us/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=69) by Citizens for National Security documents almost 150 instances where the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/council-islamic-relations-cair), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood (http://www.clarionproject.org/glossary/muslim-brotherhood/) entity, used a tactic known as “lawfare” to intimidate its opponents.

The Lawfare Project (http://www.thelawfareproject.org/) defines (http://www.thelawfareproject.org/what-is-lawfare.html) “lawfare” as the “abuse of Western laws and judicial systems to achieve strategic military or political ends.” This includes the “negative manipulation of international and national human rights laws to accomplish purposes other than, or contrary to, those for which they were originally enacted.”

The American Islamists’ use of lawfare is primarily in the form of frivolous lawsuits and legal threats meant to stifle free speech. Even if the Islamists’ targets have done no wrong and are sure to win any court case, the high legal costs and controversy they incur punish and potentially bankrupt them.

“Lawfare is the newest, most visible and increasingly emergent form of asymmetric warfare, which must be countered both tactically and strategically,” says Brooke Goldstein, director of the Lawfare Project.
The problem is so prevalent that the United Nations reported (http://www.5rb.com/docs/UN%20Human%20Rights%20Committee%20Report%202008.pd f) in 2008 that it “has served to discourage critical media reporting on matters of serious public interest.” Non-profit groups like the Lawfare Project and the Legal Project (http://www.legal-project.org/) have had to rise up to defend victims.

Another study (http://www.thelawfareproject.org/36_Fordham_Intl_LJ_634.pdf) by the Lawfare Project finds multiple incidents where CAIR and its Islamist allies used lawfare to threaten critics.

In 2003, CAIR filed a defamation lawsuit against former North Carolina Congressman Cass Ballenger because of an answer he gave to a reporter about CAIR. He described the organization as a fundraising arm for the Hezbollah terrorist group.

The statement was false—but not because CAIR was innocent. CAIR has been linked to Hamas, another terrorist group (not Hezbollah). The lawsuit was thrown out.

Counter-terrorism expert Joe Kaufman wrote an article (http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=35372) criticizing the Six Flags amusement park for holding a special event organized by the Islamic Circle of North America (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/islamic-circle-north-america-icna) (ICNA), a CAIR ally with Muslim Brotherhood links. Local groups affiliated with CAIR sued Kaufman even though he didn’t mention any of the plaintiffs in the article.

After a lengthy and expensive legal battle, CAIR lost. But its objective wasn’t winning the case, per se. The objective was to punish a prominent critic, deter future opponents and make an adversary toxic. For example, publishers are much less likely to invest in an author with a history of being sued.

Another victim is Chris Gaubatz, who bravely infiltrated CAIR and was the lead researcher on a book about what he learned about the organization.
“I was surprised at how much I learned about propaganda, lawfare and media manipulation while performing research as an intern in CAIR-National. They are masters of media manipulation, working to control the opinion of the 7% of the electorate in our democracy that is involved politically,” he said in an interview with the Clarion Project. (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/infiltrating-cair)

And it’s not just CAIR that is using the tactic.
Arguably the most famous case of lawfare involves Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld. She was sued by a Saudi billionaire for her book linking him to terrorism-financing, along with along with 45 other publishers and journalists. (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/sep/20/standing-up-for-free-speech/print/) She was the only one that did not settle, and it took a heavy financial toll on her.

Dr. Ehrenfeld won the lawsuit and ultimately, the SPEECH Act (Securing the Protection of our Enduring and Established Constitutional Heritage), also known as “Rachel’s Law,” was passed to protect Americans from the lawfare of foreigners by stopping enforcement of foreign libel suits against Americans that don’t meet American constitution standards of due process and First Amendment protection.

The Islamic Society of Boston, a mosque with undeniable (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/boston-bombers-mosque-has-muslim-brotherhood-ties), documented links to the Muslim Brotherhood, sued 17 people in the media that reported on these facts, specifically its funding from Saudi Arabia. As soon as the mosque was required to hand over financial records, the Islamic Society of Boston dropped the lawsuit.

Lawfare is also used on government agencies. In 2011, CAIR teamed up with the American Civil Liberties Union to sue the FBI for supposedly illegally spying on innocent Muslims. The ACLU has a history of partnering (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/aclu%E2%80%99s-islamist-friends) with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and its allies for lawfare.

CAIR and its allies are deploying the same tactic against the NYPD today.
The NYPD is being sued by Islamist leaders and organizations for conducting surveillance. The controversy captures headlines, but the NYPD’s justification (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/evidence-supports-nypd-counter-terrorism-ops) does not. These lawsuits help CAIR and its allies mislead the public (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/islamists-launch-new-offensive-against-nypd) about the NYPD’s operations and integrity.

On the international level, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is trying to force compliance with Sharia (http://www.clarionproject.org/glossary/sharia/) Law through lawfare. It is lobbying hard for international laws criminalizing “hate” speech towards religions. The OIC hopes to outlaw criticism of Islam as Sharia requires.

“It’s the OIC’s attempt to pressure non-Muslims to comply with Islamic blasphemy codes. Its target is the West and failure to comply with its demands is deemed ‘Islamophobic’ even when no actual bigotry or prejudice is present,” explained (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/defamation-religion-rule-applies-islam-only) Deborah Weiss in an interview with the Clarion Project.

Lawfare is a powerful, non-violent tactic. Most writers and publishers cannot muster the financial resources to fight the American Islamists. It is simply more affordable to cave and settle, or to avoid offending them at all.

Thanks to lawfare, critics of radical Islam are faced with a choice between potential bankruptcy and telling the truth.

U.S. Charter School of Influential, Turkish Islamist Raided by FBI


The school is part of the charter school network of Fethullah Gulen, a powerful Turkish Islamist who resides in Pennsylvania.

The Kenilworth Science and Technology Charter School, part of the Gulen network, which was raided by the FBI. (Photo: Google Maps)



The FBI raided (http://www.wbrz.com/news/fbi-raids-kenilworth-charter-school/) a Turkish-run charter school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana yesterday. No information has been given to the public except that there is no threat to public safety. The school is part of the network of Fethullah Gulen, a powerful Turkish Islamist residing in Pennsylvania.
The search took place at Kenilworth Science and

http://1-ps.googleusercontent.com/h/www.clarionproject.org/sites/all/sites/default/files/images/225x300xFethullah-Gulen.jpg.pagespeed.ic.o-oiBPQJLT.jpg

Fethullah GulenTechnology Charter School, which had been under investigation since 2011 due to evidence of violations at another Gulen school in the state. Both Gulen-linked schools are part of the Pelican Educational Foundation.

The other school is the Abramson Science and Technology Center. Its charter was revoked by the state after an investigation found multiple disturbing incidents, including sexual abuses including an accusation of rape.

“We cannot afford to have a charter school operator in Louisiana that is putting our kids in a potentially unsafe and unstable learning environment,” said (http://theadvocate.com/home/410207-79/probe-opened-at-school.html) Ollie Tyler, the Acting State Superintendent of Education.
Inci Akpinar, a business associate of the Abramson Center even tried to bribe an official of the Louisiana Department of Education after the probe started.

“I have $25,000 to fix this problem: $20,000 for you and $5,000 for me,” the official recalled (http://www.nola.com/education/index.ssf/2011/07/state_shuts_down_abramson_char.html) being told.

The findings at the Abramson Center led to an investigation of the Kenilworth School.

Kenilworth was accused of misconduct in two lawsuits, one by a parent and the other by two terminated teachers. The parent stated that her child urinated on herself after she was repeatedly denied permission to go to the bathroom. The teachers argue that they were fired because of discrimination.

Gulen is ranked as the most influential Muslim in the U.S. (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/islamists-take-nose-dive-2013-issue-muslim-500) and the 11th most influential Muslim in the world. He fled to the U.S. in 1998 after the Turkish government charged him with trying to overthrow its secularism.
He has erected a parallel state in Turkey and was instrumental in enabling the Islamist takeover of the country. Gulen has since had a falling out (http://world.time.com/2013/12/04/turkeys-erdogan-battles-with-countrys-most-powerful-religious-movement/) with Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan. Leaked (http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2013/12/akp-gulen-rift-deepens.html) documents show Erdogan’s government planned to act against Gulen’s network in Turkey.

Glen resides in a 28-acre compound in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania and has a reported net worth of $25 billion. He set up his first charter school in the U.S. in 1999 and now has 135 of them, making it the largest charter school network in the country.

Sharon Higgins, a researcher who closely follows the Gulen network, wrote a thoroughly referenced article (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/answer-sheet/post/largest-charter-network-in-us-schools-tied-to-turkey/2012/03/23/gIQAoaFzcS_blog.html) about the network in the Washington Post in March 2012. The article states that “the United States is the only country where the Gulen Movement has been able to establish schools which are fully funded with public money.”

Philly.com (http://articles.philly.com/2011-03-20/news/29148147_1_gulen-schools-gulen-followers-charter-schools) spoke with Ruth Hocker, the former president of the parents' group at the Young Scholars of Central Pennsylvania Charter School in State College because of her experience with a Gulen school. Hocker’s statements substantiate the accusations of discrimination in staffing.
Hocker said that she learned that unqualified Turkish teachers were replacing the well-qualified American teachers that were originally hired. When questioned, the Gulen school officials claimed that the Turks were more qualified even though some of them weren’t even fluent in English.
The FBI is investigating (http://articles.philly.com/2011-03-20/news/29148147_1_gulen-schools-gulen-followers-charter-schools) whether the schools have a kickback scheme to fund the Gulen movement as a whole. The Abramson Center is known to have sponsored teachers’ trips to Turkey, where they were given literature about the Gulen movement. However, no proof has surfaced of the curriculum indoctrinating students with his ideological teachings.

Gulen preaches the doctrine of gradualism (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/gradualism-islamist-strategy-victory), an incremental and non-violent approach towards implementing Sharia (http://www.clarionproject.org/glossary/sharia/) (Islamic) law. In 1999, Turkish television showed a private speech he gave to supporters outlining this strategy towards changing the secular identity of Turkey. He preached (http://www.meforum.org/2045/fethullah-gulens-grand-ambition):
“You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers … If they [Muslim allies] do something prematurely, the world will crush our heads … you must wait until such time as you have gotten all the state power, until you have brought to your side all the power of the Constitutional institutions in Turkey.”

He emphasized that his listeners must not share what he has told them:
“Now, I have expressed my feelings and thoughts to you all in confidence … trusting your loyalty and secrecy. I know that when you leave here, [just] as you discard your empty juice boxes, you must discard the thoughts and the feelings that I expressed here.”

Gulen’s network was the subject of a 60 Minutes investigation (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/us-charter-schools-tied-to-powerful-turkish-imam/) in May 2012. Reporter Leslie Stahl was mostly favorable to Gulen but conceded that his group “does lack transparency — its funding, hierarchy and ambitions remain hidden — leading our State Department to wonder in cables between Ankara and Washington if Gulen has an ‘insidious political agenda.’”

The problem goes well beyond Gulen. The Islamist Turkish government is building a $100 million mega-mosque (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/turkey-stakes-claim-america-100-million-mega-mosque) in Maryland and is reaching out (http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/turkey-courting-native-americans-trojan-horse-bid) to Native American tribes. While the British government plans to officially (http://news.yahoo.com/britain-tackle-quot-islamist-extremism-quot-soldier-39-000311987--sector.html) classifying “Islamist extremism” as an ideology, it continues to spread in the U.S.

The ACLU’s Islamist Connections

The American Islamist network that originated with the Muslim Brotherhood has essentially incorporated the ACLU into its public relations machine.

By Ryan Mauro


http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/aclu’s-islamist-friends


On September 26, Investor’s Business Daily made an acute observation: (http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/092612-627214-aclu-hijacked-by-islamists-practicing-lawfare.htm?p=full) The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has fiercely fought against essential U.S. counter-terrorism programs and actions but was curiously silent when the White House pressured (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/14/white-house-innocence-of-_n_1885684.html) YouTube to take down the film Innocence of Muslims, a provocative presentation of Mohammed's life, in order to appease Muslim rioters. The background of one top ACLU official, Jameel Jaffer, may explain the inconsistency.

Jameel Jaffer heads the ACLU’s Center for Democracy and was the director of the Center’s National Security Project (http://www.aclu.org/national-security) from 2007 to 2010. He is best known for suing to get information about CIA interrogation practices and the drone campaign to kill terrorists overseas, which he staunchly opposes.

In March 2009, Jaffer was the keynote speaker at a fundraiser (http://muslimmedianetwork.com/mmn/?p=3812) for the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), which the federal government designated an unindicted co-conspirator (http://media.radicalislam.org/misc/pdf/List+of+Unindicted+HLF+Co-conspirators.pdf) in the terrorism-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation. The government said CAIR is an entity of the U.S. Muslim BrotherhoodMuslim BrotherhoodGlossary Item (http://www.clarionproject.org/glossary/muslim-brotherhood/)

A worldwide Islamist organization founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna that seeks to implement Sharia-based governance globally.


(http://www.clarionproject.org/glossary/muslim-brotherhood/)’s secret Palestine Committee that was set up to support Hamas. The event raised $130,000 for CAIR.

CAIR-MI is led by Dawud Walid (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/454.pdf), who has a history of inflammatory rhetoric. Also speaking at the fundraiser was Kifah Mustapha, another unindicted co-conspirator that the U.S. government says is part of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. He also was a vocalist in a band that performed pro-Hamas songs. He is an imamImamGlossary Item (http://www.clarionproject.org/glossary/imam/) at the Mosque Foundation (http://www.investigativeproject.org/case/391), which has strong Brotherhood affiliations.

Religious authority figure; usually the leader of a mosque. (http://www.clarionproject.org/glossary/imam/)

Perhaps Jaffer’s affection for these groups is because of their stances against Israel. In a letter (http://www.nytimes.com/2000/10/12/opinion/l-the-mideast-violence-strikes-a-raw-nerve-616966.html) to the New York Times on October 11, 2000 about the violence following Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s visit to the Temple Mount, he wrote that “Israel’s soldiers have killed scores of Arab civilians, most for throwing stones, and some for merely being in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

The message of the ACLU’s Center’s National Security Project mirrors that of the Islamist groups with Muslim Brotherhood origins. Its website says it fights against counter-terrorism programs that “amount to racial profiling on a federal scale,” “suspicionless searches and arbitrary detentions of Arabs” of Muslims, the “many horrific abuses inflicted on detainees in U.S. custody” and terrorism-financing laws that “unfairly target” Muslim organizations.

It claims that the U.S. government has gone to “extraordinary lengths to squelch dissent” and has “returned to the bad old days of unchecked spying on ordinary Americans.” It also takes aim at the government’s denial of visas to foreign scholars on ideological grounds.

http://1-ps.googleusercontent.com/x/www.clarionproject.org/media.radicalislam.org/files/12-2012/271x103xcXqlOnMk2aos.png.pagespeed.ic.wLBIRGeNdX.j pg

In other words, the U.S. government has abandoned rule of law and is systematically persecuting Muslims, a theme (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/117.pdf) consistently pushed by CAIR and its Brotherhood-originated partners. These accusations rally people to their side when their allies are accused, investigated or prosecuted. When the ACLU refers to the “unfairly target[ed]” Muslim groups, these are the ones being referred to.

In June 2008, the ACLU sued (http://www.aclu.org/national-security/aclu-challenges-governments-stigmatizing-mainstream-muslim-groups-holy-land-case) on behalf of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). Both were founded by the Muslim Brotherhood and designated as unindicted co-conspirators (http://media.radicalislam.org/misc/pdf/List+of+Unindicted+HLF+Co-conspirators.pdf) in the terrorism-financing trial of the Holy Land Foundation. FBI investigators identified (http://www.investigativeproject.org/730/new-disclosures-tighten-isna-muslim-brotherhood-bonds) them as Muslim Brotherhood fronts as far back as 1987 and a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood internal document (http://media.radicalislam.org/misc/pdf/Muslim+Brotherhood+General+Strategic+Goal+for+Nort h+America.pdf) lists them among “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”

The ACLU said that the public naming of them as unindicted co-conspirators amounted to “publicly branding these groups as criminals.” Hina Shamsi, now the director of the ACLU National Security Project, said that it caused their “good name to be dragged through the mud.”

Jaffer was one of the attorneys on the case. The judge agreed (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2340/federal-judge-agrees-cair-tied-to-hamas) that the designations should not have been publicized, but that the labels were warranted. There is “ample evidence to establish the associations” of ISNA, NAIT and CAIR with Hamas, he said.

In June 2009, the ACLU published (http://www.aclu.org/human-rights/terrorism-finance-laws-undermine-american-muslims-religious-freedom-says-aclu) a report (http://www.aclu.org/human-rights/report-blocking-faith-freezing-charity) claiming that U.S. terrorism-financing laws violate the religious freedom of Muslims. The ACLU said the U.S. government is engaged in “widespread intimidation of Muslim donors and the arbitrary blacklisting of charitable organizations.”

According to page 14 (http://www.aclu.org/files/pdfs/humanrights/blockingfaith.pdf#page=8), the report is based on “115 interviews with Muslim community leaders and American Muslims directly affected by the U.S. government’s policies regarding Muslim charities and Muslim charitable donors.” It was critical of the shutting down of seven charities, including the Holy Land Foundation.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism’s rebuttal (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1073/aclu-recommendations-would-mean-more-money-for) corrects the misleading characterizations in the report. Muslims who innocently donated to the charities do not need to worry. Prosecutors would have to prove in the court of law that they consciously donated to an entity involved in terrorism. Notably, not a single donor to the Holy Land Foundation was prosecuted. The five who were jailed were leaders of it.

In January 2010, Jaffer and the ACLU scored a major victory when the State Department reversed its policy of denying a visa to Islamist scholar Tariq Ramadan, the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. His father, Said, was also a major Brotherhood leader in Europe. In April 2010, Ramadan said (http://archives.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1004/11/ampr.01.html) that the Iraqi and Palestinian resistance is “legitimate” but you cannot target innocents and civilians, meaning attacks on U.S. and Israeli soldiers are justified.

At least part of the reason for the ban on Ramadan was because Ramadan donated to two groups later blacklisted as Hamas fronts. His publishing house was reportedly (http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/2004/12/tariq-ramadan-gives-up-then-tries-again) located in the same building as one of the charity’s fundraising office. The U.S. government said (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/09/29/AR2006092901334.html) he “reasonably should have known” they were Hamas fronts, but his donations were made before the charities were sanctioned. Jaffer picked him up (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/08/nyregion/08muslim.html?_r=0) from the airport and drove him to meetings, including (http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/092612-627214-aclu-hijacked-by-islamists-practicing-lawfare.htm?p=full) one with CAIR officials.

In October 2011, the ACLU sent a letter (http://www.aclu.org/files/assets/sign_on_letter_to_dir_mueller_re_radicalization_re port_10.4.11.pdf) to the FBI protesting a 2006 document about indications of Islamic radicalization. It was signed by CAIR, CAIR-NY, ISNA and two other Brotherhood-originated groups, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and Muslim American Society. The letter accused the FBI of encouraging its personnel to view the practice of Islam as a threat.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism’s response (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3229/aclu-and-islamists-vs-the-fbiyet-again) showed that the ACLU’s letter was “notably skewed.” The FBI’s list of radicalization indications is meant to outline a process. The 14 indicators -- only half of which were mentioned in the letter -- are meant to be considered altogether. Further, the FBI report repeatedly states that becoming a Muslim does not automatically mean someone is radicalized.

When five members of Congress warned (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/bachmann-hits-back-at-mccain-critics-regarding-her-letter-about-muslim-brotherhood-and-its-u-s-tentacles/) that groups and individuals with Muslim Brotherhood ties had relationships with parts of the U.S. government, the ACLU was one of the signators to a letter (http://www.interfaithalliance.org/images/PDF_DOCS/letter_to_reps_bachmann_franks_gohmert_rooney_and_ westmoreland_from_42_organizations.pdf) given to them, blasting them for “ question[ing] the loyalty of faithful Americans based on nothing more than their religious affiliations and what is at best tenuous evidence of their associations.”

The ACLU specifically came to the defense of ISNA and MPAC, saying they “have long-standing histories of positive and committed work to strengthen the United States of America” and the “’guilt-by-association’ accusations … betray our foundational religious freedoms.”

That brings us to today. The ACLU didn’t utter a word when the White House tried to get the film Innocence of Muslims removed from YouTube. When the Daily Caller forced (http://dailycaller.com/2012/09/14/aclu-concerned-about-white-house-request-that-youtube-review-anti-muslim-video/%20) the ACLU’s hand by contacting them for comment, the ACLU only said it was “concerned.” The tame reaction to this blatant censorship is a far cry from its hysteria over counter-terrorism policies and legitimate concerns that affect its Islamist friends.

To be fair, ACLU-MN did sue (http://www.meforum.org/2517/aclu-takes-muslim-school-to-court) over the public funding of the Islamist-tied (http://www.campus-watch.org/article/id/5398) Tarek Ibn Ziyad Academy in Minnesota in January 2009. This may be because the ACLU, like any large organization, divides responsibilities. However, there is no indication that the ACLU Center for Democracy or its National Security Project was involved in this matter.

The American Islamist network that originated with the Muslim Brotherhood has essentially incorporated the ACLU into its public relations machine -- it always helps when you have a friend in a high place.

CAIR Tries to Silence Victim of Persecution
Agrees witness to Islamic persecution of Copts in Egypt can speak
By Bob Unruh (http://www.wnd.com/author/runruh/)


http://www.wnd.com/2013/12/school-reverses-cair-sought-silencing-of-christian/


A Minnesota school district that first took the advice of the Council on American Islamic Relations has thought better of it, and now has reversed its decision regarding a witness to Islamic persecution of Christians in Egypt who wanted to address the community.

According to officials with Liberty Counsel, leaders (http://www.lc.org/) with the Bagley, Minn., Independent School District (http://www.bagley.k12.mn.us/education/district/district.php?sectionid=1) had engaged in viewpoint discrimination when they responded to a demand letter from the local CAIR chapter, and canceled a scheduled speech by Usama Dakdok in October.

LC explained that a local resident had rented a school auditorium for the address by Dakdok, who is a Christian originally from Egypt who grew up attending government schools there where he was educated about Islam as the state religion.

When CAIR discovered it would be a Christian speaking at the community event, its activists immediately wrote the school district, stating, “Although Dakdok has the First Amendment right to free speech, this right is not absolute and has been limited when it is considered to be harassment, intimidating or encouraging violence against a particular group of people.”

The CAIR letter claimed Dakdok’s appearance at a school would violate the district’s harassment and violence policy and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin.

CAIR, in the person of Minnesota Executive Director Lori Saroya, blasted the district’s initial decision to allow the speech, stating, “By spewing his hate-filled views in a school auditorium, Mr. Dakdok would have created the perception that his bigotry has the endorsement of education authorities.”

So the school district canceled the address, just four days before it was scheduled to be held.

Enter Liberty Counsel, which dispatched a letter to the district pointing out that CAIR had the situation wrong.

“Usama Dakdok is a Christian originally from Egypt, who grew up in that country attending government schools where he was educated about Islam as the state religion. In Egypt, as a member of the Coptic ethnic minority, Mr. Dakdok has also personally witnessed the persecution of other Coptic Christians by fundamentalist Muslims. As you may be aware in Egypt (as elsewhere), the Quran is explicitly cited as justification for the burning of churches, raping of women, murder of both sexes and all ages through beheading and other methods, forced ‘marriage’ of Christian women and girls to Muslim men and their forcible ‘conversion’ to Islam, payment of the ‘jizya’ tax for the privilege of remaining Christian,and other persecution that is inflicted upon members of the Coptic Christian ethnic and religious minority,” Liberty Counsel told the district.

So he is “uniquely qualified to give a Christian perspective about life under shariah (Islamic religious) law, and is a sought-after public speaker.”

Regarding his appearance in Minnesota, he had been invited by residents of the community to speak. A local resident, Tammy Godwin, made arrangements to use the school.

After being confronted by CAIR, the district reneged on its agreement, and Supt. Steve Cairns “stood firmly behind the cancellation, despite the fact that district policy makes available its facilities to members of the public for purposes of protected speech activity and debate.”

Although Dakdok’s speech eventually went on at a local church, he still wishes to return to speak at the school and a larger section fo the community, Liberty Counsel said.

Its letter to the district explained that CAIR’s “characterization of district policies and the Civil Rights Act simply is “inaccurate.”

“Contrary to CAIR’s assertions, the district’s suppression of the constitutionally protected speech of Mr. Dakdok at the insistence of a biased third party who disagrees with the message is unconstitutional,” the letter said.

“Because the district has created a limited public forum by allowing anyone in the community to rent facilities for purposes of peaceable speech and discussion, disinviting Mr. Dakdok for the reasons given constitutes viewpoint discrimination and is unlawful.”

It continued, “The district may not cancel his speaking engagement where it holds facilities available for public purposes, including speech and debate. CAIR or anyone else may rent district facilities to share an alternative viewpoint regarding speech with which they disagree, including Mr. Dakdok’s. What they may not do, however, is silence speech because they disagree with the speaker’s message, and they may not use a governmental entity to do indirectly what CAIR cannot do directly, at least not in this country.”

Liberty Counsel officials said the school then notified them of the reversal. A letter from an attorney for the district, Charles Long, said a building rental form was needed, and the rent, but also listed dozens of dates that the auditorium was available.

The national CAIR organization was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, and a review of the public record, including federal criminal court documents, past IRS 990 tax records and Federal Election Commission records detailing donor occupations, reveals that CAIR has been associated with a disturbing number of convicted terrorists or felons in terrorism probes, as well as suspected terrorists and active targets of terrorism investigations. The list is long and includes:

Ghassan Elashi: One of CAIR’s founding directors, he was convicted in 2004 of illegally shipping high-tech goods to terror state Syria and is serving 80 months in prison. He was also convicted of providing material support to Hamas in the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial. He was chairman of the charity, which provided seed capital to CAIR. Elashi is related to Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook.

Muthanna al-Hanooti: The CAIR director’s home was raided in 2006 by FBI agents in connection with an active terrorism investigation. Agents also searched the offices of his advocacy group, Focus on Advocacy and Advancement of International Relations, which al-Hanooti operates out of Dearborn, Mich., and Washington, D.C. Al-Hanooti, who emigrated to the U.S. from Iraq, formerly helped run a suspected Hamas terror front called LIFE for Relief and Development. Its Michigan offices also were raided in September 2006. In 2004, LIFE’s Baghdad office was raided by U.S. troops, who seized files and computers. Al-Hanooti is related to Sheik Mohammed al-Hanooti, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

“Al-Hanooti collected over $6 million for support of Hamas,” according to a 2001 FBI report, and was present with CAIR and Holy Land officials at a secret Hamas fundraising summit held in 1993 at a Philadelphia hotel. Prosecutors added his name to the list of unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land case.

Although Al-Hanooti denies supporting Hamas, he has praised Palestinian suicide bombers as “martyrs” who are “alive in the eyes of Allah.”

Abdurahman Alamoudi: Another CAIR director, he is serving 23 years in federal prison for plotting terrorism. Alamoudi, who was caught on tape complaining that bin Laden hadn’t killed enough Americans in the U.S. embassy bombings in Africa, was one of al-Qaida’s top fundraisers in America, according to the U.S. Treasury Department.

Randall “Ismail” Royer: The former CAIR communications specialist and civil-rights coordinator is serving 20 years in prison in connection with the Virginia Jihad Network, which he led while employed by CAIR at its Washington headquarters. The group trained to kill U.S. soldiers overseas, cased the FBI headquarters and cheered the space shuttle Columbia tragedy. Al-Qaida operative Ahmed Abu Ali, convicted of plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush, was among those who trained with Royer’s Northern Virginia cell.

Bassam Khafagi: Another CAIR official, Khafagi was arrested in 2003 while serving as CAIR’s director of community affairs. He pleaded guilty to charges of bank and visa fraud stemming from a federal counter-terror probe of his leadership role in the Islamic Assembly of North America, which has supported al-Qaida and advocated suicide attacks on America. He was sentenced to 10 months in prison and deported to his native Egypt.

Laura Jaghlit: A civil-rights coordinator for CAIR, her Washington-area home was raided by federal agents after 9/11 as part of an investigation into terrorist financing, money laundering and tax fraud. Her husband Mohammed Jaghlit, a key leader in the Saudi-backed SAAR network, is a target of the still-active probe. Jaghlit sent two letters accompanying donations – one for $10,000, the other for $5,000 – from the SAAR Foundation to Sami al-Arian, now a convicted terrorist. In each letter, according to a federal affidavit, “Jaghlit instructed al-Arian not to disclose the contribution publicly or to the media.” Investigators suspect the funds were intended for Palestinian terrorists via a U.S. front called WISE, which at the time employed an official who personally delivered a satellite phone battery to Osama bin Laden. The same official also worked for Jaghlit’s group. In addition, Jaghlit donated a total of $37,200 to the Holy Land Foundation, which prosecutors say is a Hamas front. Jaghlit subsequently was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the case.

Nihad Awad: Wiretap evidence from the Holy Land case puts CAIR’s executive director at the Philadelphia meeting of Hamas leaders and activists in 1993 that was secretly recorded by the FBI. Participants hatched a plot to disguise payments to Hamas terrorists as charitable giving. During the meeting, according to FBI transcripts, Awad was recorded discussing the propaganda effort. He mentions Ghassan Dahduli, whom he worked with at the time at the Islamic Association for Palestine, another Hamas front. Both were IAP officers. Dahduli’s name also was listed in the address book of bin Laden’s personal secretary, Wadi al-Hage, who is serving a life sentence in prison for his role in the U.S. embassy bombings. Dahduli, an ethnic-Palestinian like Awad, was deported to Jordan after 9/11 for refusing to cooperate in the terror investigation. (An April 28, 2009, letter from FBI assistant director Richard C. Powers to Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz. – which singles out CAIR chief Awad for suspicion – explains how the group’s many Hamas connections caused the FBI to sever ties with CAIR.) Awad’s and Dahduli’s phone numbers are listed in a Muslim Brotherhood document seized by federal investigators revealing “important phone numbers” for the “Palestine Section” of the Brotherhood in America. The court exhibit showed Hamas fugitive Mousa Abu Marzook listed on the same page with Awad.

Omar Ahmad: U.S. prosecutors also named CAIR’s founder and chairman emeritus as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land case. Ahmad, too, was placed at the Philadelphia meeting, FBI special agent Lara Burns testified at the trial. Prosecutors also designated him as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s “Palestine Committee” in America. Ahmad, like his CAIR partner Awad, is ethnic-Palestinian. (Though both Ahmad and Awad were senior leaders of IAP, the Hamas front, neither of their biographical sketches posted on CAIR’s website mentions their IAP past.)

Nabil Sadoun: A CAIR board member, Sadoun has served on the board of the United Association for Studies and Research, which investigators believe to be a key Hamas front in America. In fact, Sadoun co-founded UASR with Hamas leader Marzook. The Justice Department added UASR to the list of unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land case.

In 2010, Sadoun was ordered deported to his native Jordan. An immigration judge referenced Sadoun’s relationship with Hamas and the Holy Land Foundation during a deportation hearing.

Mohamed Nimer: CAIR’s research director also served as a board director for UASR, the strategic arm for Hamas in the U.S. CAIR neglects to mention Nimer’s and Sadoun’s roles in UASR in their bios.

Rafeeq Jaber: A founding director of CAIR, Jaber was the long-time president of the Islamic Association for Palestine. In 2002, a federal judge found that “the Islamic Association for Palestine has acted in support of Hamas.” In his capacity as IAP chief, Jaber praised Hezbollah attacks on Israel. He also served on the board of a radical mosque in the Chicago area.

Rabith Hadid: The CAIR fundraiser was a founder of the Global Relief Foundation, which after 9/11 was blacklisted by the Treasury Department for financing al-Qaida and other terror groups. Its assets were frozen in December 2001. Hadid was arrested on terror-related charges and deported to Lebanon in 2003.

Hamza Yusuf: The FBI investigated the CAIR board member after 9/11, because just two days before the attacks, he made an ominous prediction to a Muslim audience. “This country is facing a terrible fate, and the reason for that is because this country stands condemned,” Yusuf warned. “It stands condemned like Europe stood condemned because of what it did. And lest people forget, Europe suffered two world wars after conquering the Muslim lands.”

California Muslim pleads guilty to trying to provide weapons training to al-Qaeda

Sinh Vinh Ngo Nguyen

Yet another convert to Islam misunderstands his true, peaceful religion, and still nary a mosque in the U.S. has any program to teach converts to avoid this understanding of Islam that they ostensibly reject.

"Calif. man pleads guilty to terror charge," from the Associated Press (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/12/27/calif-man-pleads-guilty-to-terror-charge/), December 27:
LOS ANGELES – A California man pleaded guilty Friday to a federal terrorism charge after admitting he attempted to assist Al Qaeda by providing weapons training, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Sinh Vinh Ngo Nguyen, 24, of Garden Grove entered the plea before U.S. District Court Judge John F. Walter, who scheduled sentencing for March 21, prosecutors said in a statement. Nguyen faces a maximum of 15 years in federal prison.

The statement said Nguyen's admission was contained in a plea agreement filed in federal court.

"Nguyen admitted that approximately one year ago he traveled to Syria where he joined opposition forces," the statement said. "Using a social network site during a four-month period he was in Syria, Nguyen told people that he was fighting against the Assad regime and that he had had a `confirmed kill."'

Nguyen returned to the U.S., where he told associates that he had offered to train Al Qaeda forces in Syria but was turned down, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Prosecutors said that between Aug. 3 and Oct. 11 Nguyen met with a man he thought was an Al Qaeda recruiter but who actually was working for the FBI, telling him about what he'd done in Syria and saying he wanted to return to jihad.

On Oct. 1, Nguyen purchased a ticket for travel from Mexico to Pakistan and he was arrested by FBI agents on Oct. 11 as he was about to board a bus from Santa Ana, Calif., to Mexico.

10 Year Sentence for "Jihad Jane"

by IPT News

http://www.investigativeproject.org/4258/10-year-sentence-for-jihad-jane


Significant cooperation with federal law enforcement spared Colleen LaRose a possible life prison sentence for plotting to kill a Swedish cartoonist and other conspiracies.

LaRose, known as "Jihad Jane," pleaded guilty nearly three years ago to conspiracy to support terrorists, conspiracy to kill in a foreign country, lying to investigators and attempted identity theft. Since then, she met more than 20 times with "government agents from all around the country as well as other parts of the world," prosecutors wrote (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2291.pdf#page=5). That assistance led to the indictments of two co-conspirators and helped "other national security investigations" which prosecutors did not disclose.

A federal judge sentenced her to 10 years in prison on Monday.

Prosecutors had asked for "decades" behind bars to recognize the severity of LaRose's plot and its lingering threats. An American passport she stole (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2291.pdf#page=12) for a terrorist "brother" remains missing. And the target of her murder plot, cartoonist Lars Vilks, remains the subject of attacks. Vilks was among the cartoonists whose caricatures of the Muslim prophet Muhammad prompted violent protests.

Vilks told American investigators (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2291.pdf#page=13) that LaRose's plot "seemed to ignite other like-minded people." In 2010, Vilks was attacked (http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/europe/05/11/sweden.cartoonist.attack/) during a lecture. He was not home when his house was attacked by arsonists (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-wires/20100515/eu-sweden-prophet-drawing/?) that same year.

She already has been in custody for four years, and could be free (http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/jihad-jane-faces-life-sentence-terror-plot-21430849) four years from now with good behavior.

LaRose provided significant help, but remains "wistful" about ... prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum. She appeared in court Monday wearing (http://www.seattlepi.com/news/crime/article/Jihad-Jane-faces-life-sentence-for-terror-plot-5116847.php) a black head scarf. She converted to Islam after dating a Muslim man and reportedly became radicalized watching Internet videos.

She told the court (http://www.philly.com/philly/news/breaking/20140107__Jihad_Jane__gets_10-year_term.html#Vh6xOb6vZFsrxMiR.99) she remained a Muslim, but "I don't want to be into jihad no more. I don't think like I used to think."

In pleading guilty (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2544/jihad-jane-pleads-guilty), LaRose admitted that she and her co-conspirators wanted to become martyrs for Allah." Her indictment cites an email (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1196.pdf#page=5) in which she says she will make killing Vilks "my goal till i achieve it or die trying." She traveled in preparation for an attack and even tried to contact (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1473.pdf#page=5) the cartoonist, the plea memorandum said.

Prosecutors are concerned that LaRose, 50, remains a threat. She "grew unmistakably wistful when discussing her 'brother' in Pakistan, for whom she professed lifelong loyalty and agreed to commit murder," the sentencing memo says (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2291.pdf#page=14). A lengthy prison sentence could "send a strong message to other lonely, vulnerable people who might be enticed by online extremists promising fame and honor," prosecutors argued (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2291.pdf#page=6).

"LaRose was working with truly dangerous people, and she proudly used her American background and looks to their advantage as they plotted against America."

Final Decision:
'Anti-Semitic' Group Loses Canadian Funding
Canadian Arab Federation's appeal to regain government funding fails, after evidence mounts of intense anti-Semitism.
By Dalit Halevy, Tova Dvorin


http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/176081#.Us3jJCfTncc

Anti-Israel demonstration (illustration)
Flash 90

One anti-Israel, anti-Semitic organization will not continue to receive funding by a national government - and the decision is final.

On Wednesday, the Ottawa Federal Court dismissed the appeal filed by the Canadian Arab Federation (CAF) against the decision of the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration to stop the government funding for the years 2009-10, according to Shalom Toronto.

The funding amounted to one million dollars per year, or 74 percent of its budget. The CAF claimed the funds are intended to be used within the framework of language courses for new immigrants and assist them in the process of integration into Canadian society.

Minister Jason Kenney, who headed the Ministry at the time, recounted during the legal proceedings the reasons that led to the decision. The investigation cited anti-Semitic statements by leaders of the organization, who also have expressed support and solidarity with a number of groups declared as terrorist organizations in Canada, including Hamas and Hezbollah.

In 2006, the organization's president sent an email with a proclamation (prepared by a person not related to the organization) attacking Bob Ray, one of the heads of the Liberal Party, and his Jewish wife.

"Bob Ray was the head speaker (at a JNF event), an organization academics say is involved in war crimes and ethnic cleansing," the claim reads.

"Ray's wife is the Vice President (of the Canadian Jewish Congress), a pro-Israel lobbying organization that supports Israeli apartheid and the illegal apartheid wall," it continues.

"President Carter denounced the Israeli apartheid. Bob Ray supports Israeli apartheid. Do not choose a leader who supports apartheid."

The organization also distributed a video in which children express their hatred fort Israel. One child said that every Israeli citizen over the age of 18 is "a legitimate target." Another expressed support for terrorist organizations and called Israel "a racist state."

In 2009, the organization was involved in demonstrations against Israel, with Hezbollah flags flying during the event. Protesters held placards comparing Israel to the Nazis. Several included horrific statements like, "Jewish children, you are going to die - Hamas will get you." At the demonstration, the organization's president called Minister Kenney and Peter Kent MPs (Conservative Party) and Michael Ignatieff (Liberal Party) "whores of war" for supporting Israel's right of self-defense during Operation Cast Lead.

In 2007, Ali Malah, who served as vice president of the organization, participated in a Cairo conference attended by representatives of Hamas, Hezbollah, Jama'a Islamiya and the Arab Liberation Front - all declared terrorist organizations in Canada. The organization's website had links to sites featuring violent videos, including Hamas undergoing military training.

An event marking the 40th anniversary of the organization honored Shiite Islamic activist Zafar, who called other Canadians "infidels" and spoke about the attacks of September 11, 2001 without expressing solidarity for its victims.

For Israel's 60th anniversary, the organization sponsored, along with two other organizations, an essay writing competition on "ethnic cleansing" of Palestine.

At the above interview in 2009, a CAF official attempts to explain the problem as a matter of differing with government policy, which continues to be pro-Israel (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/175552). While the CAF has attempted to distance itself from evidence on its website and elsewhere that it is heavily involved in anti-Israel activity, the judges at the appeal differ.

"All statements and actions specified by the Minister may logically lead me to the conclusion that the organization is portrayed as a supporter of organizations that Canada has declared as terrorist organizations," Judge Russel Zin stated, maintaining that the nature of the statements of the leaders of the organization may be construed as anti-Semitic.

Minister Kenney praised the decision's logic, stressing that organizations defending terrorist organizations should not receive government funding - especially if they are in charge of absorbing new immigrants into wider society.

The major Jewish organizations in Canada have expressed joy at the court's decision. Shimon Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) , said that it is particularly disturbing that an organization who holds opinions that contradict Canadian values ​​is trusted with integrating new migrants in society.

Avi Benlolo, president of the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies in Toronto, noted that court documents clearly show that this organization has promoted anti-Semitism and extreme positions that constitute a threat to Canada. He called on the income tax authorities to examine the status of the CAF as a charity organization.

Colorado: Muslim imprisoned for enslaving maid appeals denial of his request to be released and sent home to Saudi Arabia


http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/90760.aspx

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/colorado-muslim-imprisoned-for-enslaving-maid-appeals-denial-of-his-request-to-be-released-and-sent-.html


http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/al-turki-2010.jpg

He wants to be returned home because he is almost certain not to remain imprisoned for this in Saudi Arabia. The Qur'an allows sexual slavery:
If you fear that you will not act justly towards the orphans, marry such women as seem good to you, two, three, four; but if you fear you will not be equitable, then only one, or what your right hands own; so it is likelier you will not be partial. (Qur'an 4:3)
The twentieth-century Qur'an commentator Maulana Bulandshahri explains:
During Jihad (religion war), many men and women become war captives. The Amirul Mu’minin [leader of the believers, or caliph – an office now vacant] has the choice of distributing them amongst the Mujahidin [warriors of jihad], in which event they will become the property of these Mujahidin. This enslavement is the penalty for disbelief (kufr).
He goes on to explain that this is not ancient history:
None of the injunctions pertaining to slavery have been abrogated in the Shari’ah. The reason that the Muslims of today do not have slaves is because they do not engage in Jihad (religion war). Their wars are fought by the instruction of the disbelievers (kuffar) and are halted by the same felons. The Muslim [sic] have been shackled by such treaties of the disbelievers (kuffar) whereby they cannot enslave anyone in the event of a war. Muslims have been denied a great boon whereby every home could have had a slave. May Allah grant the Muslims the ability to escape the tentacles of the enemy, remain steadfast upon the Din (religion) and engage in Jihad (religion war) according to the injunctions of Shari’ah. Amen!
This is by no means an eccentric or unorthodox view in Islam. The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 (http://www.translatingjihad.com/2011/05/egyptian-shaykh-jihad-is-solution-to.html) that “we are in the era of jihad,” and that as they waged jihad warfare against infidels, Muslims would take slaves. He clarified what he meant in a subsequent interview (http://www.translatingjihad.com/2011/06/video-shaykh-al-huwayni-when-i-want-sex.html):
...Jihad is only between Muslims and infidels….Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars--there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on. When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an by the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess” [Qur’an 4:24]. This is a verse from the Qur’an which is still in force, and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex-slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point--there is no disagreement from any of them. [...] When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.
Right around the same time, on May 25, 2011, a female Kuwaiti activist and politician, Salwa al-Mutairi, also spoke out (http://www.translatingjihad.com/2011/06/video-kuwaiti-activist-i-hope-that.html) in favor of the Islamic practice of sexual slavery of non-Muslim women, emphasizing that the practice accorded with Islamic law and the parameters of Islamic morality.
...A merchant told me that he would like to have a sex slave. He said he would not be negligent with her, and that Islam permitted this sort of thing. He was speaking the truth….I brought up (this man’s) situation to the muftis in Mecca. I told them that I had a question, since they were men who specialized in what was halal, and what was good, and who loved women. I said, “What is the law of sex slaves?” The mufti said, “With the law of sex slaves, there must be a Muslim nation at war with a Christian nation, or a nation which is not of the religion, not of the religion of Islam. And there must be prisoners of war.”

“Is this forbidden by Islam?,” I asked.

“Absolutely not. Sex slaves are not forbidden by Islam. On the contrary, sex slaves are under a different law than the free woman. The free woman must be completely covered except for her face and hands. But the sex slave can be naked from the waist up. She differs a lot from the free woman. While the free woman requires a marriage contract, the sex slave does not--she only needs to be purchased by her husband, and that’s it. Therefore the sex slave is different than the free woman.”
While the savage exploitation of girls and young women is an unfortunately cross-cultural phenomenon, only in Islamic law does it carry anything approaching divine sanction. Here is yet another human rights scandal occasioned by Islamic law that the international human rights community and the mainstream media cravenly ignore.

"Appeal likely in Saudi man's Colorado sex offense," from the Associated Press (http://english.ahram.org.eg/News/90760.aspx), January 4 (thanks to Creeping Sharia (http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2014/01/06/colorado-saudi-muslim-convicted-of-sex-slavery-to-appeal-release-to-ksa/)):
A Saudi man convicted in Colorado of sexually abusing his Indonesian housekeeper and keeping her as a virtual slave will probably appeal after a judge denied his request to be released and sent home, a defense lawyer said Friday.

Another lawyer said he is considering a new legal challenge on separate grounds.

Denver attorney Hal Haddon said he has not been allowed to speak to Homaidan al-Turki since a state judge ruled Thursday he had no authority to grant his release, but Haddon said he expects his client will want to appeal.

The judge didn't rule that it was inappropriate for al-Turki to be released on probation, only that the judge did not have the power to do so, Haddon said.

He said the ruling was devastating for al-Turki's wife and children in Saudi Arabia.

Al-Turki, a linguist who was living and working in Colorado, was convicted in 2006 of unlawful sexual contact by use of force, false imprisonment and other counts. He was sentenced to eight years to life in prison.

He denied the allegations, saying he was a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment.

Probation would have allowed him to serve the rest of his sentence in Saudi Arabia. Saudi officials promised to enforce whatever terms Colorado imposed.
Yeah, surrrrrre.
Colorado prosecutors said there was no way to ensure Saudi Arabia would carry out the sentence.They also said al-Turki was not eligible for release because he refused to participate in a required prison program for sex offenders. Al-Turki's lawyers said his religion prevented him from participating in the program because it would require him to look at photos of women in bathing suits or undergarments. They also said he would have to confess to the crimes, which they say he cannot do because he is challenging his conviction.

Another attorney for al-Turki, John Portman of Denver, said he is considering another challenge based on court rules that allow people whose appeals have been denied to contest convictions on several grounds, including newly discovered evidence.

Portman declined to say what grounds were being considered and when a challenge might be filed.

Last year, state prison officials denied al-Turki's request to be transferred to Saudi custody under an international treaty.

The prisons director at the time, Tom Clements, was ready to approve the transfer but denied it after an FBI agent contacted prison officials, according to testimony during court hearings last year. The officials haven't said why Clements changed his mind or what the FBI agent said.

About a week after the treaty transfer was denied, Clements was shot and killed. Prison officials said they investigated but found nothing linking al-Turki to the crime.

Still, prosecutors said in November that al-Turki remained a person of interest in the Clements investigation.

Pamela Geller in Breitbart News:
The Islamization of America in 2013


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/pamela-geller-in-breitbart-news-the-islamization-of-america-in-2013.html


http://www.jihadwatch.org/assets_c/2014/01/islam-america-afp-thumb-500xauto-4588.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/islam-america-afp.jpg)

This article, "The Islamization of America in 2013" by Pamela Geller at Breitbart (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/01/09/The-Islamization-of-America-in-2013), January 9, is lengthy, but read it all: it is an extremely useful summary of what is going on in America today. Check out also Pamela Geller's revamped new Atlas Shrugs website (http://pamelageller.com/), which is sleek, efficient, and up-to-the-minute. (Our own redesign and move to a new platform hit a few snags, but will be coming soon: watch this space.)
Since I wrote my bookStop the Islamization of America (http://www.amazon.com/Stop-Islamization-America-Practical-Resistance/dp/1936488361) and established the Stop Islamization of America initiative of my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), we have seen increasing accommodation and submission to Islam in the United States. This past year was a particularly good year for Islamic supremacists, who are working furiously in this country to impose Sharia (Islamic law) -- and in particular, the blasphemy laws under the Sharia.

The Islamic supremacist approach is stealthier here in the States than it is in Europe, where we see no-go zones, mass car burnings, etc., because Europe currently has a much bigger Muslim population than the U.S. does. More on Muslim immigration here. (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/muslim-immigration.html)

That kind of aggression is in our future, for nothing is being done to prevent its coming here. The few of us who dare to speak against Sharia and jihad are blacklisted from the mainstream media’s major newspaper and broadcast outlets. Trimmers (those who soften the message about Islam or speak of “Islamism,” an artificial word making a distinction without a difference) and Islamic apologists are dusted off and trotted out to make some inane comment whenever the mainstream media cannot avoid covering a jihad news story (such as the Boston Marathon jihad bombing). But the effective true voices against Islamization, such as myself, Robert Spencer, Wafa Sultan, and Ibn Warraq are rarely seen these days.

It’s never been as bad as it is now, and we have never been proven so right as we were in 2013. In the U.S., in a survey (http://www.wnd.com/2012/10/guess-who-u-s-muslims-are-voting-for/) released at the end of 2012, almost half of the Muslims in America said that they thought parodies of Muhammad should be subject to criminal prosecution. One in eight thought that insulting Islam should be a death penalty offense. Forty percent said that they shouldn’t have to obey U.S. laws, but should be subject only to Islamic law.

These findings should have come as no surprise; they weren’t much different from those of a May 2013 survey of Muslims worldwide (http://www.pewforum.org/uploadedFiles/Topics/Religious_Affiliation/Muslim/worlds-muslims-religion-politics-society-full-report.pdf). The survey showed (http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/05/despite_a_number_of_deliberately.html) that the harshest Sharia punishments enjoy broad support among Muslims the world over: “72% of Indonesian Muslims, 84% of Pakistani Muslims, 82% of Bengladeshi Muslims, 74% of Egyptian Muslims, and 71% of Nigerian Muslims supported making Sharia the official state law of their respective societies.” 85% of Muslims in Pakistan, 81% in Afghanistan, and 70% in Egypt supported the most brutal aspects of Sharia, such as amputating the hands of thieves. 86% of Muslims in Pakistan, 84% in Afghanistan, and 80% in Egypt supported stoning for adultery. 75% in Pakistan, 79% in Afghanistan, and 88% in Egypt favored executing those who leave Islam. “91% of Iraqi Muslims and 99% of Afghan Muslims supported making Sharia the official state law of their respective societies.”

And in America, wherever Islamic law and American law conflict, it is increasingly American law that gives way. Islam is even taught in public schools, according to a report at The Blaze (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/virginia-teacher-charged-with-assault-girls-hand-cut-in-forced-islamic-hand-sign-drill/):
An elementary school teacher in Chesapeake, Va. has been charged with simple assault after a parent claimed her daughter’s hand was cut open as a result of the teacher yanking her arm aggressively while trying to teach students an "Islamic hand sign."
In November 2012 (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2012/11/sharia-law-in-arizona-muslim-mom-gets-probation-after-beating-daughter-and-burning-her-with-hot-spoo.html), a Muslim mother went on trial for beating her teenage daughter after the girl refused an arranged marriage and was seen at school talking to a boy who was not her planned husband. Her devout Muslim father stabbed his daughter in the neck, leaving a wound an inch and a half long, and admitted that he tried to kill her. This couple was freed: the mother got two years of probation.

This was Arizona. Not Yemen, not Iran, but Phoenix. This is the Sharia in America, for honor violence is not merely sanctioned in Islam, it is encouraged. And honor murder of the offspring is sanctioned under Islam: according to Reliance of the Traveller: A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0915957728/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0915957728&linkCode=as2&tag=atlashru0c-20), “not subject to retaliation” is “a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring” (o1.1-2).

The following month, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, which has now been declared a terrorist organization by the Egyptian government, spoke at a mosque in Brooklyn (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2012/12/video-egyptian-muslim-brotherhood-leader-speaks-at-brooklyn-mosque-nypd-arrest-mb-protester.html). The NYPD enforced the Sharia there as well, arresting a man who came to protest against Brotherhood atrocities in Egypt. One must not criticize Islam or its self-appointed representatives – even in Brooklyn.

In another Sharia ruling that same month, a federal judge ruled (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2012/12/sharia-law-in-tulsa-.html) against a Tulsa police captain who had exercised his First Amendment rights and refused to force some of his subordinates to attend a dawah (Islamic proselytizing) event at a Tulsa mosque. If these police officers had been required to go to a church, they’d have won their case.

In Minnesota in November 2013 (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/11/sharia-in-minnesota-ymca-and-st-paul-police-dept-organize-muslim-swim-with-taxpayer-dollars.html), the YMCA and the St. Paul Police Department organized a Muslim swim, restricted to Muslim women only, with taxpayer dollars. The police department is providing transportation for the Muslimas to segregated Sharia swim at the YMCA. There are thousands of Islamic centers across the country -- Sharia swim belongs there, not in our public pools. If it is so crucial that these Muslims live under Sharia, why move here? Why not live in a Sharia state?

Instead, Sharia is coming here. In June 2013, it was revealed (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/06/san-francisco-airport-uses-public-money-to-construct-foot-washing-station-for-muslims.html) that the San Francisco Airport used public money to construct a foot-washing station for Muslims. Harvard University in January 2013 posted a Qur’anic verse (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/01/harvard-dhimmis-post-quran-verse-at-faculty-of-law.html) at the entrance of its faculty of law, describing the verse as one of the greatest expressions for justice in history, heedless of the fact that Sharia law is the antithesis of America law. The Constitution is the great shining moment of Western civilization, based on individual rights, the premise of which is the opposite of Islamic law.

In Minnesota, a Catholic university, the University of St. Thomas, in January 2013 (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/12/minnesota-catholic-university-installs-mini-mosques-and-islamic-foot-baths-for-muslims.html) installed mini-mosques and Islamic foot baths for Muslims. Where are the cathedrals and pews in the madrassas? There is no reciprocity in Islam. Non-Muslims cannot pray in mosques. Non-Muslims are only permitted into mosques for dawah (proselytizing). Islamic outreach goes only one way: to Islam. But this is a Catholic university turning itself over to the very ideology that inspires the mass slaughter of Christians across the world. It is astonishing and horrifying in the same breath.

Public schools in Florida are teaching (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/08/public-schools-in-florida-teaching-muhammad-is-gods-messenger.html) that Muhammad is “God’s messenger.” In Indiana (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/03/muslim-family-dawahs-visit-to-public-school-prompts-investigation-islamicsupremacismtothenextlev.html), a Muslim family went from classroom to classroom in a public school, handing out material proselytizing for Islam. Texas public school students were made to wear burqas (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/02/texas-public-school-students-made-to-wear-burqas.html). In January 2013 in Maryland (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/01/mosqueing-the-public-school-muslim-high-school-students-demand-for-prayer-accommodations-in-md-publi.html), Muslim high school students demanded prayer accommodations in a public school.

In August 2013 (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/08/tennessee-elementary-school-bans-pork-to-avoid-offending-muslims.html), a Tennessee elementary school banned pork to avoid offending Muslims. Children are drawing (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/08/tennessee-the-five-pillars-of-proselytizing-in-public-school.html) the five pillars of Islam in Tennessee public schools. The Nashville, Tennessee public school system is teaching dangerous lies (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/10/proselytizing-islam-the-islamic-curriculum-taught-in-the-metro-nashville-tennessee-public-school-sys.html) in an Islamic lesson plan written by Islamic dissemblers and rife with grammatical errors and poor English. Where are the children’s drawings of Christ on the cross? Where are the teachings of the Rashi? Where is the Chumash?

This isn’t public education. This is dawah (http://www.callingmuslims.com/2012/01/exposing-dawah-art-of-selling-falsehood.html). And it is happening all over, but patriots are fighting back: in September 2013, an Ohio mom got an Islamic proselytizing video removed (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/09/ohio-mom-islamic-proselytizing-video-removed-from-7th-grade-histroy-class.html) from her child’s seventh-grade history class. In November 2013, hundreds of parents protested (http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2013/11/public-school-dawah-hundreds-of-parents-protest-pro-islam-indoctrination-florida-school-textbook.html) against pro-Islam indoctrination contained in a public school textbook.
There is much, much more. Read it all (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/01/09/The-Islamization-of-America-in-2013).

Syria:
Jihadis training U.S. Muslims to carry out jihad attacks when they return home

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/10/world/middleeast/syrian-groups-try-to-recruit-us-travelers.html?hp&_r=0

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/syria-jihadis-training-us-muslims-to-carry-out-jihad-attacks-when-they-return-home.html


http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/syria-jihadis.jpg

Don't expect U.S. "moderates" to help identifying and stopping these jihadis. When asked what he thought about the participation of U.S. Muslims in the Kenya mall jihad massacre, Hamas-linked CAIR's Ibrahim "Honest Ibe" Hooper replied, "Who cares? (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/hamas-linked-cair-on-possibility-that-us-muslims-participated-in-kenya-jihad-mass-murders-who-cares.html)"

"Syria Militants Said to Recruit Visiting Americans to Attack U.S.," by Michael S. Schmidt and Eric Schmitt for the New York Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/10/world/middleeast/syrian-groups-try-to-recruit-us-travelers.html?hp), January 9 (thanks to Jerk Chicken):
WASHINGTON — Islamic extremist groups in Syria with ties to Al Qaeda are trying to identify, recruit and train Americans and other Westerners who have traveled there to get them to carry out attacks when they return home, according to senior American intelligence and counterterrorism officials.

These efforts, which the officials say are in the early stages, are the latest challenge that the conflict in Syria has created, not just for Europe but for the United States, as the civil war has become a magnet for Westerners seeking to fight with the rebels against the government of President Bashar al-Assad. At least 70 Americans have either traveled to Syria, or tried to, since the civil war started three years ago, according to the intelligence and counterterrorism officials — a figure that has not previously been disclosed.

The director of the F.B.I., James B. Comey, said Thursday that tracking Americans who have returned from Syria had become one of the bureau’s highest counterterrorism priorities.

“We are focused on trying to figure out what our people are up to, who should be spoken to, who should be followed, who should be charged,” Mr. Comey said in a meeting with reporters, without referring to specific numbers. “I mean, it’s hard for me to characterize beyond that. It’s something we are intensely focused on.”

Fearing that the handful of Americans who have returned to the United States pose a threat because they may have received extensive training and jihadist indoctrination, the F.B.I. is conducting costly round-the-clock surveillance on a small number of these individuals, according to the officials.

“We know Al Qaeda is using Syria to identify individuals they can recruit, provide them additional indoctrination so they’re further radicalized, and leverage them into future soldiers, possibly in the U.S.,” said a senior counterterrorism official, who, like half a dozen other top intelligence, law enforcement and diplomatic officials interviewed for this article, spoke on the condition of anonymity because he did not want to be identified discussing delicate national security issues.

In Europe, where larger numbers are leaving for Syria, officials share the same concern and are working closely with American authorities to coordinate measures to stem the flow and track those who return.

Analysts say at least 1,200 European Muslims have gone to fight since the start of the civil war. In a confidential memo on Nov. 26, Gilles de Kerchove, the European Union’s counterterrorism coordinator, warned that “the first returnees have come back, and there are cases where individuals continue traveling back and forth.”

Most of the Americans who have traveled to Syria are still there, the officials said, though a few have died on the battlefield. Nicole Lynn Mansfield, 33, of Flint, Mich., a convert to Islam, was killed last May while with Syrian rebels in Idlib Province.

Another American, Eric G. Harroun, a former Army soldier from Phoenix, was indicted in Virginia by a federal grand jury last year on charges related to allegations that he fought alongside the Nusra Front, one of the Syrian opposition groups linked to Al Qaeda. In September, he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge involving conspiracy to transfer defense articles and services, and was released from custody.

Mr. Harroun’s involvement was hardly a secret. Last February, he bragged about his role, posting a photo on his Facebook page saying, “Downed a Syrian Helicopter then Looted all Intel and Weapons!”

American officials say their concerns about the recruitment and training of Americans are based on intelligence gleaned from passenger travel records, human sources on the ground in Syria, intercepted electronic communications, social media postings and surveillance of Americans overseas who have expressed interest in traveling to Syria. The authorities are also trying to identify Americans traveling there by scouring travel data that the European Union has been providing to the Department of Homeland Security as part of a 2011 agreement....

U.S. Army veteran, convert to Islam, to plead guilty to trying to join jihad terror organization

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/us-army-soldier-convert-to-islam-to-plead-guilty-to-trying-to-join-jihad-terror-organization.html


http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/baxam-block.jpg

Once again, no one seems concerned about how this convert to Islam came to misunderstand his new, peaceful religion so spectacularly. No one is asking mosques or Islamic schools in the U.S. to teach against this misunderstanding of Islam that is so widespread, so as to prevent this kind of thing from happening. Indeed, even to suggest that they do so would be "Islamophobic."

"Ex-Soldier From Md. to Plead Guilty to Terrorism," from CBS DC (http://washington.cbslocal.com/2014/01/09/ex-soldier-from-md-charged-with-terrorism-to-plead-guilty/), January 9 (thanks to Daniel):
WASHINGTON — A former Army soldier accused of trying to provide support to a terrorist organization in Somalia after he left the military intends to plead guilty in connection with the case, court documents show.

Craig Baxam of Laurel, Md., was arrested in Kenya in late 2011, and prosecutors said he was on his way to neighboring Somalia to join the terrorist group al-Shabab. Baxam was ultimately charged with attempting to provide material support and resources to the group. Baxam’s trial in federal court in Greenbelt, Md., was set to begin Monday, but this week prosecutors filed a court document signaling his intention to plead guilty in the case.

The 1-page document, called an “information,” suggests Baxam will plead guilty to obstruction of justice, destroying records “in contemplation of a federal investigation.” Baxam, 26, destroyed his computer before leaving from Africa and, according to a court document, told FBI agents that he did so because he “did not want anything on his record and it would help him to keep a low profile.”

The information says Baxam destroyed computer records “with the intent to obstruct, influence and impede a terrorism investigation” he believed would be conducted after he left for Somalia. The document does not say what will happen with the terrorism charge, though it will likely be dismissed at a hearing Monday.

Baxam’s lawyer, Linda Moreno, confirmed the document’s filing but said she could not comment on what will happen in court. She said it was not her client’s intent to support terrorism and said what her client did was “a long way from material support” of a terrorist group.

“It’s a different universe,” Moreno said.

Court documents say Baxam served in the Army from 2007 to 2011 and received intelligence training before serving in Iraq and Korea. He converted to Islam shortly before leaving the Army. Months later, he cashed out his savings and left for Africa. He told FBI agents who interviewed him in Kenya that he set out with $600 and $700 and planned to give the money to al-Shabab. Asked what he thought his role would be with al-Shabab, he told FBI agents “he would just be another body there.” He also allegedly said he was “looking for dying with a gun in my hand.”

Baxam’s attorney, however, previously argued in court papers that he was traveling to Somalia because he wanted to go live in a place governed by Islamic law. She argued that the charge against him should be dismissed for a number of reasons, including that he never contacted or attempted to contact al-Shabab. A judge allowed the case to go forward.

U.S.-Iranian Citizen Arrested for Shipping Military Secrets to Tehran

by Abha Shankar

Jan 13, 2014
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4262/us-iranian-citizen-arrested-for-shipping-military


A criminal complaint (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2300.pdf) charged Mozaffar Khazaee (aka Arash Khazaie) of shipping secret copyrighted documents relating to the U.S. Air Force's F35 Joint Strike Fighter Program (http://www.jsf.mil/) and military jet engines to Iran.

Khazaee, who became naturalized in 1991 and holds dual U.S. and Iranian citizenship, allegedly obtained the information from defense contractors with whom he had been employed as an engineer.

The investigation against Khazaee opened in November (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2298.pdf#page=3) after investigators from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Service (CBP) and Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) noticed a shipment that Khazaee sent by truck from Connecticut to a freight forwarder in Long Beach, Cal. Although the documentation on the shipment said that it contained household goods, inspectors found "numerous boxes of documents consisting of sensitive technical manuals, specification sheets, and other proprietary material relating to the U.S. Air Force's F35 Joint Strike Fighter program and military jet engines," an affidavit attached to the complaint said.

Khazaee, who recently moved from Connecticut to Indianapolis, was arrested in Newark before he could get on a connecting flight to Frankfurt on his way to Tehran.

He made an initial court appearance Monday. The charge against him carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison if Khazaee is convicted.

Former Soldier Gets Seven Years for Obstructing Terrorism Investigation

by Abha Shankar

• Jan 13, 2014
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4261/former-soldier-gets-seven-years-for-obstructing


A former American soldier was sentenced (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2296.pdf) to seven years in prison Monday after pleading guilty (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2297.pdf) to destroying computer records that could have been used against him in a terrorism investigation. Craig Benedict Baxam (http://www.investigativeproject.org/case/609) of Laurel, Md., converted to Islam soon after leaving the U.S. Army in July 2011. He was arrested in Kenya in December 2011 by Kenyan police while he was on his way to Somalia to wage jihad alongside the al-Qaida-tied (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1425/its-official-al-shabaab-ties-the-knot-with-al) Somali jihadist organization, al-Shabaab (http://www.nctc.gov/site/groups/al_shabaab.html).

Baxam destroyed his personal home computer before leaving for Somalia because "he did not want any record left behind and that he wanted to maintain a low profile." According to the plea agreement, Baxam told (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2297.pdf#page=4) federal agents "that due to his prior service in the U.S. Army, and specifically his training and experience in military intelligence, he knew of the U.S. government's capabilities in tracing Internet protocol addresses and other investigative techniques available to authorities. Consequently, before leaving the U.S., he destroyed his personal home computer and threw the remains in a dumpster."

Court records (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1874.pdf) show Baxam told agents that "living an Islamic life in the United States is oppressive." In statements to agents he justified defensive jihad and said he would fight the U.S. to defend Islamic lands.

Canadian Arab Federation stripped of funding for supporting terrorism


http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/canadian-arab-federation-stripped-of-funding-for-supporting-terrorism/


First ISNA was stripped (http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2013/09/23/canada-islamic-society-of-north-america-isna-charity-loses-status-over-terrorism-links/), then CAIR-CAN underwent a name change (http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2013/07/23/cair-canada-changes-name-to-cover-links-with-hamas-linked-cair/) to hide its terror links, now this. Is Canada catching on to the stealth jihad?

Muslim cleric who endorses jihad/martyrdom suicide bombings on 11-city US tour

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/01/14/Radical-Syrian-Cleric-Secures-US-Visa-Despite-Endorsing-Suicide-Bombings

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/muslim-cleric-who-endorse-jihadmartyrdom-suicide-bombings-on-11-city-us-tour.html


http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/Nabulsi.jpg

And the Board Chairman of the sponsoring group is none other than the sinister, vicious and cynically disingenuous Hussam Ayloush of Hamas-linked CAIR. Why does this man have any audience at all? Why are the peaceful, moderate Muslims of the U.S. giving him a hearing? Why aren't they standing up at his talks and barraging him with tough questions about how Islam forbids suicide, and asking him why he is twisting and hijacking Islam?

"Radical Syrian Cleric Secures US Visa Despite Endorsing Suicide Bombings," by John Rossomando for Breitbart (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/01/14/Radical-Syrian-Cleric-Secures-US-Visa-Despite-Endorsing-Suicide-Bombings), January 14:
A Syrian sheik who labeled all Jews as legitimate targets for suicide bombers and who supports the death penalty for homosexuals is the latest extremist Muslim cleric raising money for Syrian-American groups supporting dictator Bashar al-Assad's ouster.

Sheik Mohammad Rateb al-Nabulsi is in the middle of an 11-city tour across America on co-sponsored (https://www.facebook.com/events/505658342877197/) by the Syrian American Council (SAC) and the Wylie, Texas-based Shaam Relief.

A promotional announcement hails (http://www.sacouncil.com/news/sac-news/syria-a-nation-in-need-tour-with-sheikh-rateb-al-nabulsi/) al-Nabulsi as "an internationally-known Muslim scholar, renowned for his scholarship of Islam, who has lent his formidable clerical authority to support human rights, tolerance and respect for all."

But tolerance is not part of his preaching when it comes to perceived enemies.

Asked about Palestinian suicide bombings in April 2001, al-Nabulsi said he was "too insignificant to give a Sharia ruling or fatwa." Instead, he extensively cited from two previous fatwas from radical clerics which bless such attacks.

"All the Jewish people are combatants" acceptable as targets for attacks in Israel, al-Nabulsi wrote (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/777.pdf) in his "ruling on martyrdom operations in Palestine."

"They do not have a career that a military rank does not encounter: doctor, pilot, engineer, for example, is a tank commander. Every civilian, citizen," he wrote. "They do not have a regular army; they have a reserve army, and all the people can fight, so this is essentially an entirely aggressive entity from A to Z. This is the Sharia ruling."

Al-Nabulsi's comments on suicide bombings remain on his website (http://www.nabulsi.com/blue/ar/art.php?art=11139&id=175&sid=1529&ssid=1530&sssid=1531).

Suicide bombings are acceptable because of the overwhelming disadvantage Palestinians have in fighting Israel, he said. And they are effective.

"Therefore beware, the enemy calls the operations suicide, they say: suicide operation to deceive Muslims, that this is suicide, but we should call them martyrdom operations. A young man in the prime of his years sacrifices his life and shakes an entity," he wrote (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/777.pdf#page=4). "There is frightening talk. Soon tourism in Israel has become zero; soon immigration to Israel became thirty percent from the impact of these actions. It fell thirty percent. The real fact us that it began now. By God Almighty it was proven to them, It gives victory over them, and inspires us to help them in any way."

He called Jews the "worst enemies of God" and Islam and "a hotbed of vices and evils."

The scope of his fatwa is limited to Israel. But it is not his only call to violence. Al-Nabulsi believes that Muslims should violently fight those who "impose their culture … and pornography" on them, as well as those who humiliate Muslims, occupy their lands and take their money, an August 2006 sermon (http://www.nabulsi.com/en/art.php?art=473&id=44&sid=46&ssid=48&sssid=49&w=jihad) shows.

Yet, al-Nabulsi apparently obtained a visa from the State Department allowing him to conduct his fundraising tour. Under current policy, a foreign national applying for a U.S. visa who is known to have promoted jihad and suicide bombings would be ordinarily deemed "undesirable" and denied a visa, government officials who have been involved in deciding who gets a visa from hostile countries told the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT).

The State Department declined to comment. "Visa records are confidential under U.S. law under the Immigration and Nationality Act," State Department spokeswoman Katherine Pfaff said in response to an IPT query.

Al-Nabulsi already has visited Spring Hill, Fla., near Tampa; Orlando; Charleston, W.Va.; Milwaukee; Paterson, N.J.; and Falls Church, Va., for the two groups. Shaam Relief raised $65,000 during the Tampa-area stop, according to the charity's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Shaam.Relief/posts/647219661990833).

In Tampa, al-Nabulsi posed for a photograph with Hatem Fariz. In 2006, Fariz pleaded guilty (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/308.pdf) to conspiring to provide goods or services to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. In doing so, he admitted communicating with Ramadan Shallah, who has been the PIJ secretary general since 1995, about a shipment of tapes of Shallah's statements about the PIJ.

In Paterson Thursday, al-Nabulsi spoke at the Islamic Center of Passaic County. That mosque is led by Mohamed Qatanani, who is fighting deportation efforts based on a 1993 arrest in Israel in which he admitted being a member of Hamas. In addition, Qatanani advocates for blasphemy laws (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3558/imam-mohammad-qatanani), saying free speech does not give Americans the right to mock things holy to Islam.

Al-Nabulsi will be making two stops in the Detroit area this coming weekend before concluding his tour Jan. 25 in Dallas.

In November, a similar fundraising tour featured Sheik Osama al-Rifai, who endorsed a coalition of jihadist groups called the Islamic Front. He helped raise $3.6 million (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4236/ipt-exclusive-jihad-supporting-imam-raised) for the Syrian Sunrise Foundation, which shares several board members with the SAC.

The SAC is one of the major groups lobbying (http://www.politico.com/politicoinfluence/0913/politicoinfluence11578.html) in Washington for support against Assad in Syria.

Many of the Syrian American Council's members are former members of the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, Molham al-Droubi, a member of the Syrian Brotherhood's executive committee (http://www.fotofinder.com/preview/F3735AAED5C02C0F/?usrtrck=searchresult_link_icon_preview&searchresultid=e91d4e16c80c90cc15a553bc87a5aa29&start=1&text=Molham%20Aldrobi) told the IPT in an exclusive interview. Al-Droubi, however, said there were not any institutional links between the SAC and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood.

SAC President Talal Sunbulli (http://www.sacouncil.com/about-us/board/) is among the current or former members of the Muslim Brotherhood who enjoy a role in the organization, according to an international phone book (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1083.pdf#page=18) of Muslim Brotherhood members seized by federal investigators. Hussam Ayloush, who runs the Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Los Angeles office, serves as chairman of the organization's board of directors.

The SAC's leaders have a history of minimizing the radical Islamist threat in Syria.

Its government relations director Mohammed Ghanem criticized the United States (http://www.sacouncil.com/news/sac-in-the-news/taking-syria-back-from-the-extremists-mohammed-a-ghanem-washington-post/) for classifying Jabhat al-Nusra, one of al-Qaida's two Syrian affiliates, as a terrorist organization in a December 2012 column published (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/taking-syria-back-from-the-extremists/2012/12/27/2b6ce1a6-3d96-11e2-ae43-cf491b837f7b_story.html) in the Washington Post. Ghanem said the move was "disastrous" for how "mainstream" Syrians viewed the United States.

Jabhat al-Nusra's connection with al-Qaida (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/jackson-diehl-a-jihadist-group-prospers-in-syria/2012/10/28/c036128a-1ed8-11e2-ba31-3083ca97c314_story.html) was known about several months before Ghanem wrote his piece.

Meanwhile, al-Nabulsi's calls for violent jihad are not limited to Jews in Israel. He includes the Western push for same-sex marriage (http://www.nabulsi.com/en/art.php?art=473&id=44&sid=46&ssid=48&sssid=49&w=jihad) among the things Muslims need to fight in their jihad.

"So as they would not impose their pornography, and so as not to give us a lesson that marriage is a contract between two persons; not necessarily a man and a woman; it may be between two men or two women," he wrote in 2010. The message is followed by a verse from the Quran: "And fight them until there's no more fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah). And (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah (Alone). " [Al-Baqarah : 193]

Al-Nabulsi took his jihad against homosexuals (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8BatZ2oIxU) a step further during an April 2011 talk on Hamas's al-Aqsa TV.

"Homosexuality offers a filthy place and does not generate offsprings. Homosexuality leads to the destruction of the homosexual," Al-Nabulsi said. "That's why homosexuality carries the death penalty."

Inviting Nabulsi to speak on behalf of the SAC is ironic considering Ayloush's past statements.

"t is also extremely important to remember that even one person's support for targeting civilians is one too many.

Regardless of one's religion or belief system, any support for violence should never go unnoticed or unaddressed," Ayloush wrote (http://www.dailynews.com/opinion/20070603/some-slant-poll-results-on-muslims-in-america) in a June 2007 commentary in the [I]Los Angeles Daily News.

Yet Ayloush has been silent about al-Nabulsi's visit on his Facebook page and in his Twitter feed. Ayloush did not respond to an IPT question sent to his Twitter account asking if he had any objections to al-Nabulsi's invitation.

But Ayloush is quick to dismiss anyone who connects Islam with violence and hatred as a bigot or an "Islamophobe."...

Hamas-linked CAIR's Ibrahim Hooper whitewashes jihad in the US

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/01/09/The-Islamization-of-America-in-2013

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/hamas-linked-cairs-ibrahim-hooper-whitewashes-jihad-in-the-us.html


http://www.jihadwatch.org/assets_c/2013/12/Hooper2-thumb-500xauto-4274.jpg
Flag, CAIR logo, and Hooper trying to look affable in a carefully staged image

Ibrahim "Honest Ibe" Hooper of Hamas-linked CAIR has sent out this crafty and deceptive op-ed as a "service" from Hamas-linked CAIR, and of course our lazy, clueless and compromised mainstream media is happy to oblige him by publishing it. This article seems to be a response to Pamela Geller's recent exhaustive summary at Breitbart (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/01/09/The-Islamization-of-America-in-2013) of Islamic jihad and supremacist activity in 2013. "Islamophobic 'List' Used to Justify Suspicion of Muslims," by Ibrahim Hooper (http://www.salem-news.com/articles/january142014/muslim-bias-mi.php), January 14:
(WASHINGTON, DC) - One of the bigoted themes often promoted by the growing cottage industry of Muslim-bashers is that the increasing level of Islamophobia online and in the public arena is merely a legitimate response to the violent actions of Muslims worldwide.
Hooper here reveals the dishonesty at the heart of the entire "Islamophobia" initiative: Islamic supremacists and Leftists use the term to refer both to analyses of how Islamic jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism (e.g., what my colleagues and I do) and also to attacks on innocent Muslims (which neither I nor my colleague nor any decent person favors).

The objective is to make Americans think that any criticism of Islamic texts that jihadis use to incite violence worldwide threatens and endangers Muslims at home who don't approve of that violence in the first place. Then by saying that "Muslim-bashers" claim that "Islamophobia" is a "legitimate response to the violent actions of Muslims worldwide," Hooper is implying that those who decry violence and terror committed by Muslims in the name of Islam approve of violence against innocent, peaceful Muslims, as if to say, they had it coming.

Hooper cannily designs all this to obscure the real point: that people are suspicious of Islam because of jihad terror attacks -- but not just because of them, but also because of the endless mau-mauing, intimidating, opposition to counter-terror efforts, claiming of victim status, faked hate crimes, smear campaigns against foes of jihad terror, and all the other things that make people suspicious of Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslim organizations in the U.S.

No genuine attack on any innocent person, Muslim or otherwise, is ever justified. If Hamas-linked CAIR really wants to stop such attacks, it could do so by working sincerely to end the suspicions people have of Islam and Muslims -- not with disingenuous "outreach" sessions designed to dispel "misconceptions" about Islam (i.e., spread more misconceptions about Islam, fool people into thinking it is a "Religion of Peace," etc.), but by honestly working within Muslim communities and with law enforcement to root out jihadis and teach against the understanding of Islam that creates jihadis. Instead, Hamas-linked CAIR has opposed virtually every counter-terror measure that has ever been proposed, and one of its California chapters distributed a poster reading "Don't talk to the FBI."

You might wonder why Hamas-linked CAIR would do this if it wants to end "Islamophobia" (in the sense of suspicion of Islam) -- surely Hooper, Awad and co. must know that those things increase such suspicion? Yes, I am sure they do -- but in fact they want "Islamophobia" (both suspicion of Islam and attacks on peaceful Muslims) because they can use such attacks to claim victim status and the privileges that come with it, intimidate officials into thinking that surveillance of Islamic organizations is unjustified and endangers innocent people.
These Islamophobes scour the Internet to highlight every act of violence or political instability that can be tied to Islam and Muslims.

If a Muslim in a remote village in Pakistan violates Islamic beliefs by abusing his wife, we will hear about it and about why Islam should be blamed for his actions. Reports on every crime committed by a Muslim are assigned to the faith, whether or not there is even a remote religious connection.
Here again Hooper characterizes his opponents' arguments in a reductionist way that unfairly trivializes them. The point is not that "Islam should be blamed" for someone abusing his wife, but that if the abuser used Islam to justify that abuse, then Muslim leaders who oppose such abuse should work honestly to make sure it doesn't happen again by removing or reforming the things that are used to provide such justification. Are there any? Yes. The Qur’an says it: “Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that God has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for God’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them.” (Qur’an 4:34)

Hooper would still say that the abuser "violates Islamic beliefs," because Islamic apologists routinely claim that the Qur'an's command to beat disobedient women must be applied only with the most harmless of implements -- i.e., a toothstick, as per a weak hadith. However, Muhammad’s example is normative for Muslims, since he is an “excellent example of conduct” (Qur’an 33:21) – and according to a canonical hadith, Muhammad’s favorite wife, his child bride Aisha, reports that Muhammad struck her. Once he went out at night after he thought she was asleep, and she followed him surreptitiously. Muhammad saw her, and, as Aisha recounts: “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” (Sahih Muslim 2127) Aisha herself said it: “I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women.” (Sahih Bukhari 7.72.715)

So is this blaming Islam for spousal abuse? A more constructive way to put it would be: this is pointing out how spousal abusers justify their actions by pointing to Islamic texts, and these texts need reforming and reinterpretation on a large scale.
Hooper continues:
This leads to a collective “mental list” of outrages committed by Muslims that is used to justify Islamophobia and suspicion of Muslims.

The list grows with each new crime or act of violence committed by a Muslim anywhere in the world.

For example, when Muhammad Ahmad Ali was recently stopped for speeding in Ohio and some 50 bombs and four guns were found in his vehicle, that was added to the list.

And when chemicals, fuses, guns, bomb-making materials, and how-to manuals with titles such as "Boobytraps," "Deadly Brew," and "Highly Explosive Pyrotechnic Compositions” were found recently in the Maryland home of Omar Ahmed Muhammad, that too was added to the list.

Never heard of these cases? Perhaps that is because they involved not the stereotypical pseudonyms used above, but instead involved individuals named Andrew Scott Boguslawski and Todd Dwight Wheeler Jr., who are apparently not Muslim.
We all know about and condemn the Boston Marathon bombings, but how about the bomb targeting the route of a Spokane, Wash., Martin Luther King Day march? That bomb was packed with fishing weights coated with an active ingredient in rat poison.

How about the plot to kidnap or kill Alaska state troopers and a Fairbanks judge? The plans included "extensive surveillance" on the homes of two Fairbanks troopers.

Never heard of these incidents in which no Muslims were involved? You are not alone.

Does anyone truly believe that anyone anywhere would remain unaware of these cases if it had been Muslims who were charged?

That is the problem with the “list,” it only grows if the perpetrator is an “Ali,” “Ahmed” or “Muhammad.” Violent acts or crimes committed by others are either ignored, attributed to the “deranged” nature of the perpetrator, or quickly forgotten.

This “list” phenomenon can be expanded to include political instability around the world.

The campaign to sever South Sudan from Sudan was portrayed as a struggle for liberation from oppressive “Muslim and Arab” rulers. We now see “liberated” South Sudanese killing each other based on having the wrong pattern of tribal scarring.

Thousands of Muslims rallying in support of democracy have been killed or injured by the forces of a military coup in Egypt, yet the world acquiesces to the slaughter.

Would the world have similarly failed to stop the slaughter of 130,000 Syrians or the persecution of Burmese Muslims if the governments committing the killings and abuses were “Islamist?”

The answer to that question is intuitive based on the selective information accumulated in the “list.”

Only when we view all acts of violence or instances of political instability through the same intellectual lens will we be able take the steps necessary to achieve what should be everyone’s goal –- a more just and peaceful world in which people of all faiths and backgrounds are equally valued and respected.
This is all very clever, but the non-Muslim perpetrators didn't point to any religious text as the inspiration and justification for their violence. Islamic jihadists routinely do. It is not just that they're people named Ali and Muhammad who happen to commit acts of violence; they say they're doing so because of Islam. A very small sampling:

“Jihad was a way of life for the Pious Predecessors (Salaf-us-Salih), and the Prophet (SAWS) was a master of the Mujahideen and a model for fortunate inexperienced people. The total number of military excursions which he (SAWS) accompanied was 27. He himself fought in nine of these; namely Badr; Uhud, Al-Muraysi, The Trench, Qurayzah, Khaybar, The Conquest of Makkah, Hunayn and Taif . . . This means that the Messenger of Allah (SAWS) used to go out on military expeditions or send out an army at least every two months.” -- Abdullah Azzam, co-founder of al-Qaeda, Join the Caravan, p. 30

"If we follow the rules of interpretation developed from the classical science of Koranic interpretation, it is not possible to condemn terrorism in religious terms. It remains completely true to the classical rules in its evolution of sanctity for its own justification. This is where the secret of its theological strength lies." -- Egyptian scholar Nasr Hamid Abu Zayd

"Many thanks to God, for his kind gesture, and choosing us to perform the act of Jihad for his cause and to defend Islam and Muslims. Therefore, killing you and fighting you, destroying you and terrorizing you, responding back to your attacks, are all considered to be great legitimate duty in our religion." -- Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his fellow 9/11 defendants (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/03/911-defendants-we-ask-to-be-near-to-god-we-fight-you-and-destroy-you-and-terrorize-you-the-jihad-in.html)

"Allah on 480 occasions in the Holy Koran extols Muslims to wage jihad. We only fulfil God's orders. Only jihad can bring peace to the world." -- Taliban terrorist Baitullah Mehsud (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2007/01/allah-on-480-occasions-in-the-holy-koran-extols-muslims-to-wage-jihad-we-only-fulfil-gods-orders.html)

"Jihad, holy fighting in Allah's course, with full force of numbers and weaponry, is given the utmost importance in Islam....By jihad, Islam is established....By abandoning jihad, may Allah protect us from that, Islam is destroyed, and Muslims go into inferior position, their honor is lost, their lands are stolen, their rule and authority vanish. Jihad is an obligation and duty in Islam on every Muslim." -- Times Square car bomb terrorist Faisal Shahzad (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/07/times-square-jihad-bomber-explains-it-all-for-you.html)

"So step by step I became a religiously devout Muslim, Mujahid -- meaning one who participates in jihad." -- Little Rock, Arkansas terrorist murderer Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2010/11/arkansas-jihadist-step-by-step-i-became-a-religiously-devout-muslim-mujahid----meaning-one-who-parti.html)

"And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives, and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad." -- Texas terrorist bomber Khalid Aldawsari (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/02/in-the-name-of-allah-the-beneficient-the-merciful-nitro-urea-explosive-is-more-powerful-than-tnt.html)

The ways in which such people use Islam to justify violence -- that's what Hooper should be addressing and working to end. Instead, he once again blames the "Islamophobes."

New Jersey: Muslim freed from pipe at water treatment plant, faces criminal charges

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/01/17/trespasser-freed-from-pipe-at-united-water-plant-in-new-jersey-faces-criminal-charges/

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/new-jersey-muslim-freed-from-pipe-at-water-treatment-plant-faces-criminal-charges.html


http://www.jihadwatch.org/assets_c/2014/01/pipe-thumb-500xauto-4712.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/pipe.jpg)

He "purposely climbed a six-foot fence with three or four layers of barbed wire on top." What could have been his motivation? Determined tourism? Extreme thirst?

The jihad threat to the water supply is real. And as far back as 2002, the feds arrested two jihadis (http://www.foxnews.com/story/2002/07/30/feds-arrest-al-qaeda-suspects-with-plans-to-poison-water-supplies/) who were carrying plans about how to poison water supplies. In 2003, al-Qaeda threatened to poison water supplies in Western countries (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2003/may/28/20030528-102548-4938r/?page=all). In 2011, a jihadi in Spain likewise planned to poison water supplies (http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5i5kz7A_aBEdpjzFtgPCrBR159ZVQ).

And in May 2013, seven Muslim "chemical engineers" were caught trespassing (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/massachusetts-seven-muslims-caught-trespassing-at-large-public-water-supply.html) at the Quabbin Reservoir, a key supply of water for Boston, after midnight. Only months later and indirectly did we hear that it was a "criminal matter." (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/08/boston-seven-muslims-caught-trespassing-at-quabbin-water-reserve-a-criminal-matter.html) That same month, jihadists were caught in Canada who had considered poisoning air and water to murder up to 100,000 people (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/05/canada-jihadists-considered-poisoning-air-and-water-to-murder-up-to-100000-people.html).

"Trespasser Freed From Pipe At United Water Plant In New Jersey, Faces Criminal Charges," from CBS New York (http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2014/01/17/trespasser-freed-from-pipe-at-united-water-plant-in-new-jersey-faces-criminal-charges/), January 17:
MANALAPAN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Rescuers have freed a man who had been stuck for hours in a pipe at a water treatment plant in New Jersey.

Officials told CBS 2 around 11:30 a.m. that 26-year-old Asef Mohamed, of Manalapan, had been freed and airlifted to an area hospital. He was 10 to 12 feet down the pipe, which was not in use, WCBS 880′s Levon Putney reported.

United Water spokesman Rich Henning said Mohamed broke into the plant that treats and pumps water for the township of Manalapan. Workers heard cries for help coming from the pipe around 7 a.m. Friday.

“This was a person that purposely climbed a six-foot fence with three or four layers of barbed wire on top,” Henning said.

United Water officials said they have no idea why Mohamed did it, but are now looking at ways to tighten up security, Putney reported.

Manalapan police announced Friday afternoon that Mohamed is being charged with fourth-degree criminal trespassing and may face additional charges as the investigation continues, CBS 2′s Steve Langford reported.

Henning said the outflow pipe is used for cleaning a storage facility and is no more than 24 inches wide. He said the water quality was not affected by the incident.

Manalapan’s mayor told CBS 2 the town is considering the possibility of having Mohamed pay for the cost of the rescue operation.

Yesterday I noted (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/canada-hamas-linked-group-demands-pm-drop-rabbi-from-delegation-to-israel-because-he-introduced-spen.html) that the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), the Canadian branch of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), demanded that Prime Minister Steven Harper drop Rabbi Daniel Korobkin from a delegation traveling to Israel because Korobkin committed the cardinal sin of introducing Pamela Geller and me at an event last September in Toronto. The Prime Minister's office responded by noting the NCCM's ties to Hamas, whereupon the NCCM threatened to sue.

So does the NCCM have ties to Hamas or not? The superb Canadian site Point de Bascule answers: "Prime Minister Harper's director of communications slams the National Council of Canadian Muslims for 'documented ties to a terrorist organization such as Hamas,'" from Point de Bascule (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/articles/10003291-harper-s-director-of-communications-sharper-s-director-of-communications-nccm-cair-can-%E2%80%9Cdocumented-ties-to-a-terrorist-organization-such-as-hamas%E2%80%9D.html), January 17:
While Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper is getting ready for his first visit to the Middle East scheduled to start on Saturday January 18, the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM – known until recently as CAIR-CAN) objected to the presence of Toronto Rabbi Daniel Korobkin in the official delegation.

Sun News reported (http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/politics/archives/2014/01/20140116-132313.html)that "Jason MacDonald, the prime minister's director of communications, slammed the NCCM for even making the suggestion. ‘We will not take seriously criticism from an organization with documented ties to a terrorist organization such as Hamas,’ MacDonald said."

The NCCM retorted that MacDonald's statement was ‘absolutely false’ and said that it is not associated with any terrorist group. NCCM Executive Director Ihsaan Gardee added by email that “Our legal counsel is of the view that this statement is defamatory and libelous and we will be taking this up with the PMO.”

The NCCM considers that Korobkin should not be part of the delegation accompanying PM Harper because, in September 2013, he introduced Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, two anti-Islamist campaigners, at a public meeting in Toronto.

In order to understand the context of the PMO’s remarks, it is helpful to go back to the origins of CAIR-CAN. CAIR-CAN was established as a branch of the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) that had itself been founded by three leaders of a Hamas front group in the United States.

In their answers to FAQs (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10003067-faqs-about-cair-can%E2%80%99s-name-change.html) provided when CAIR-CAN became NCCM, NCCM leaders completely falsified history and claimed that “There was never any operating or funding relationship between CAIR.CAN and CAIR.”)

The operating relationship between a Hamas front group called Islamic Association of Palestine, CAIR and CAIR-CAN is presented in the following chronology:

June 1994 – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was established by three leaders of the Islamic Association of Palestine (IAP): Nihad Awad, Omar Ahmad and Rafeeq Jaber. The IAP was a front group for Hamas in the United States in the eighties and nineties. In a video (http://www.investigativeproject.org/223/cairs-awad-in-support-of-the-hamas-movement) archived by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Nihad Awad expresses his support for Hamas at Barry University in 1994. In 2002, an American judge presiding the case Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development v. Ashcroft (http://scholar.google.ca/scholar_case?case=12854346919716791872&q=%22Islamic+Association+for+Palestine%22+%22has+a cted+in+support+of+Hamas%22&hl=en&as_sdt=2006#r[17])concluded that the "Islamic Association for Palestine ("IAP"), has acted in support of Hamas.”

2000 – Foundation of CAIR-CAN

December 29, 2000 – A CAIR-CAN press release issued in Washington (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/images/data/pdf/0%20org%20cair%20hooper%202000.pdf) provides the name of a US-based CAIR leader as contact to comment about a fire at a mosque in Canada. In this press release, CAIR-CAN is referred to as CAIR's "office in Canada."

August 31, 2001 – A US-based CAIR leader’s name is added as contact in a CAIR-CAN press release (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/images/data/pdf/0%20org%20cair%20hooper%20sh%20khan%202001.pdf) criticizing the Canada-based National Post. In this press release, CAIR-CAN is referred to as "the Canadian office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations."

October 10, 2002 – Washington-based CAIR files a trade-mark application (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10003090-application-by-washington-based-council-on-american-islamic-relations-to-register-the-acronym-cair-as-trade-mark-in-canada.html) for an exclusive use of its acronym CAIR in Canada. In the Canadian government’s database, the address of the applicant CAIR is the following:
453 New Jersey Avenue, South East
Washington, D.C. 20003
United States of America

2003 – In a Journalist's Guide to Islam (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/images/data/pdf/presentation%20pdeb%20to%20cair-can%20cfm%20journalist%20guide.pdf) conceived by CAIR-CAN (p. 15), Washington-based CAIR is described as “CAIR-CAN’s parent organization” (p. 14).

December 16, 2003 – CAIR-CAN Chair Sheema Khan swears in an affidavit supporting Washington-based CAIR in a legal trade-mark battle that it “has direct control (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/img/pdf/cair_affidavit_Sheema_Khan.pdf)” over CAIR-CAN’s activities in Canada.

March 10, 2005 – A Canadian government agency confirms that, in Canada, the trade-mark on the acronym CAIR belongs to Washington-based CAIR (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10003090-application-by-washington-based-council-on-american-islamic-relations-to-register-the-acronym-cair-as-trade-mark-in-canada.html).

August 14, 2007 – In a list of CAIR chapters (http://web.archive.org/web/20070814184951/http:/www.cair.com/default.asp?Page=chapters), CAIR-CAN appears between CAIR-Ohio and CAIR-Central Pennsylvania.

Two CAIR-CAN leaders openly endorsed Hamas after it was listed a terrorist organization by the Liberal government in 2002

Jamal Badawi and Wael Haddara are two important pillars of the Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure in Canada. Both were members of CAIR-CAN Board of directors for ten years or so. Badawi was still identified as a CAIR-CAN leader on the organization’s website on May 28, 2013 (http://web.archive.org/web/20130528190209/http:/www.caircan.ca/aboutus.php?section=Board), while Haddara resigned his position on the Board on April 3, 2012 (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002880-wael-haddara-resigns-from-cair-can-board-of-directors.html). On March 3, 2004, both of them were simultaneously on CAIR-CAN’s Board (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002928-cair-can-leadership.html) and on the Muslim Association of Canada (http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/ebci/haip/srch/t3010form18officers-eng.action?b=880495163RR0001&e=2004-12-31&n=MUSLIM+ASSOCIATION+OF+CANADA&r=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cra-arc.gc.ca%3A80%2Febci%2Fhaip%2Fsrch%2Ft3010form18-eng.action%3Fb%3D880495163RR0001%26amp%3Be%3D2004-12-31%26amp%3Bn%3DMUSLIM%2BASSOCIATION%2BOF%2BCANADA% 26amp%3Br%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.cra-arc.gc.ca%253A80%252Febci%252Fhaip%252Fsrch%252Fba sicsearchresult-eng.action%253Fk%253Dmuslim%252520association%2525 20of%252520canada%2526amp%253Bs%253Dregistered%252 6amp%253B%253DSearch%2526amp%253Bp%253D1%2526amp%2 53Bb%253Dtrue%2526amp%253B)’s Board. That day, MAC issued a press release (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/images/data/pdf/0%20org%20mac%20hamas%202004.pdf) in which it openly endorsed Hamas. That was more than one year after the Canadian government, Liberal back then, had added Hamas to a list of terrorist organizations. The listing is available on Public Safety Canada’s website (http://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/ntnl-scrt/cntr-trrrsm/lstd-ntts/crrnt-lstd-ntts-eng.aspx#2023).

Apart from being engaged in the destruction of Israel, in recent years Hamas leaders have frequently advocated the Islamic conquest of the West (2008 (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2008/04/islamic-cleric-we-will-conquer-rome-and-then-eastern-europe-and-the-americas.html) – 2011 (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/articles/10002497-un-des-fondateurs-du-hamas-avertit-que-la-civilisation-occidentale-%C2%ABsera-incapable-de-r%C3%A9sister-au-grand-et-glorieux-islam%C2%BB.html) – 2012 (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/articles/10002626-un-responsable-de-l%E2%80%99universit%C3%A9-islamique-de-gaza-encourage-la-conqu%C3%AAte-islamique-de-l%E2%80%99espagne-et-du-vatican.html)). On July 16, 2013, Hamas even threatened to launch terrorist attacks (http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/7295.htm) in countries where Israel embassies are located. Canada is among the potential targets, of course....

New York:
Muslim who killed his wife says she would still be alive "if she was a Muslim"

http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Albany-man-convicted-of-murdering-wife-5153451.php

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/new-york-muslim-who-killed-his-wife-says-she-would-still-be-alive-if-she-was-a-muslim.html


http://www.jihadwatch.org/images/RobertWilliams.jpg

He said it. But of course as we all know, the fault lies not with him, but with those who dare report his words. "Murder conviction for Albany man in wife slaying," by Robert Gavin for the Albany Times-Union (http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Albany-man-convicted-of-murdering-wife-5153451.php), January 17 (thanks to Pamela Geller (http://pamelageller.com/atlas_shrugs/2014/01/ny-wife-slayer-says-wife-would-still-be-alive-if-she-was-a-muslim.html/#axzz2qrxd4DIH)):
A jury spent roughly an hour and 10 minutes Friday to convict Robert Williams of murdering his wife in her West Hill home last spring.

The panel of nine women and three men quickly rejected the arguments of Williams' attorney, Michael Jurena, who admitted Williams killed his wife but claimed it was first-degree manslaughter, not second-degree murder.

That charge would have brought a maximum of 25 years in prison for Williams, 41, a convicted sex offender. He now faces 25 years to life for the murder conviction at his March 7 sentencing.

Sharene Wallace, 37, known as Sakina, was stabbed more than 30 times in the neck inside 279 Sherman St. between May 26 and May 29. Her body was found stuffed in a closet. Williams, who fled to New York City before his arrest, admitted killing his new bride to friends and spoke at length to Albany police.

Chief Assistant District Attorney David Rossi said Williams believed Wallace was cheating on him, but killed his wife because he objected to her behavior in their Muslim community.

"I think it's clear the defendant felt slighted by Sharene," Rossi told jurors. "He may regret where he sits today. He does not regret what he did."

He played the jury part of Williams' videotaped interview with police. A detective showed Williams a photo of Wallace and referred to the victim as a Muslim woman. In turn, Williams responded: "Muslim woman? If she was a Muslim woman none of this (expletive) would even exist."

Rossi said Williams took his wife's cellphone and text-messaged naked pictures of her to all her contacts making it appear that Wallace sent out the pictures herself.

One text said: "I'm so evil I tried to contract AIDS and give it to my loving and caring husband."

Another text said: "This is me, Sheitan," a word for the devil.
Another text stated: "I'm sorry everyone but I pretend like I'm a Muslim when in all reality I'm a (prostitute) and I represent Satan."
Uh, yeah, I think maaaaaaaybe Williams sent those himself.
An incredulous Rossi told the jury, "We're supposed to believe Sharene sent that herself? Really?"

Jurors began deliberating around 12:20 p.m. They reached their verdict by 2:30 p.m. And that did not include periods in which the panel was back in the courtroom of Judge Andrew Ceresia for notes. The actual time of deliberation was estimated at one hour and 10 minutes.

In his closing argument, Jurena told the jury Williams killed his wife because of an "extreme emotional disturbance." Such a condition is an affirmative defense in New York state against a murder charge, allowing juries the option to consider manslaughter.

Jurena told the jury his client became emotionally devastated when he learned his wife was receiving text messages of other men's genitals. He admitted Williams killed Wallace, but said Wallace came at his client with knives and that his client was drunk.

"This is not a 'whodunit' kind of case," Jurena said. "I don't usually agree with prosecutors that they've proved parts of their case. I usually disagree with everything, but in his case it's obvious. And there is no dispute."

But he said the killing — which he accidentally called a "murder" at one point — was not premeditated.

"He didn't wake up one morning going over there saying, 'Hey — I'm gonna go kill my wife.' "

Rossi's final words to the jury came from a videotape of Williams speaking to Albany police, saying, "This is not one of those instances where the truth will set you free."
Indeed.

Harris Zafar and His Straw Man
A case study in how Islamic supremacists dodge real debate and demonize their foes.
by Robert Spencer (http://www.frontpagemag.com/author/robert-spencer/)


http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/robert-spencer/harris-zafar-and-his-straw-man/


On January 10, FrontPage Mag published my article, “The Grand Mufti’s Sex Tape and Violence in Islam (http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/robert-spencer/the-grand-muftis-sex-tape-and-violence-in-islam/),” in which I noted, in conjunction with the sex tape scandal of Rakhmatulla-Hajji Egemberdiev, the Grand Mufti of Kyrgyzstan, that he was the sixth Grand Mufti of Kyrgyzstan to be replaced in four years – since, as al Arabiya reported (http://english.alarabiya.net/en/variety/2014/01/09/Grand-Mufti-in-Kyrgyzstan-resigns-after-release-of-sex-video.html), “recent grand muftis, who are elected to five-year terms, have resigned early amid corruption scandals and been kidnapped and beaten.”

This became my jumping-off point for a series of speculations as to why so much violence – kidnappings, beatings — surrounded the office of Grand Mufti of Kyrgyzstan, which led me to examine the fates of the four Rightly-Guided Caliphs (all murdered) and the violent exhortations of the Muslim holy book, the Qur’an. In the Huffington Post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/harris-zafar/muslim-leader-accused-of-misconduct_b_4613387.html?utm_hp_ref=tw) a week later, Ahmadi Muslim spokesman Harris Zafar said this amounted to my blaming Islam for the Grand Mufti’s sexual misconduct, and invoked Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker and Ted Haggart in constructing an elaborate tu-quoque argument: you see? Christian clerics get involved in sex scandals, too, so shut up.

The only problem with Zafar’s article was that I had not actually blamed Islam for the Mufti’s sex scandal at all. My article was an exploration into Islamic texts that might shed light on why so many Grand Muftis of Kyrgyzstan had been kidnapped and beaten, and why so much violence surrounded even some of the founding and most revered figures of Islamic tradition. Zafar’s entire article, with all its pious posturing about fostering mutual understanding instead of indulging hatred and bigotry, was based on a straw man: the false claim that I had attributed the randiness of Kyrgyzstan’s mufti to Islam.

This phenomenon is all too common: Islamic supremacist spokesmen never in my experience engage their opponents honestly, and deal with their arguments with the “maturity, integrity and dialogue” for which Zafar, tongue no doubt firmly planted in cheek, calls in his article. Instead, they (Zafar included), indulge liberally in ad hominem attacks, smear, defamation, and misrepresentation of their foes’ position, in an all-out effort to demonize them and intimidate people of good will into backing away from any association with such forces of “hate.”

That someone like Harris Zafar would engage in such gutter tactics is bitterly ironic, since he is a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community that is violently persecuted today by orthodox Sunni Muslims in Pakistan and Indonesia. Yet Zafar, rather than support those who decry how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence even against his fellow Ahmadis, enthusiastically joins in attempts to marginalize such people, thereby aiding and abetting the program of those who oppress his people back home.

For example, a year ago Zafar wrote a Washington Post op-ed (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/guest-voices/post/making-islamic-sense-of-free-speech/2013/01/14/95fc0b5a-5ec0-11e2-90a0-73c8343c6d61_blog.html) in which he offered a manifesto for the destruction of the freedom of speech worthy of a true totalitarian – and emblematic of the Islamic supremacist war on free speech and all criticism of Islam.

“The difference between Islam’s view on free speech and the view promoted by free speech advocates these days,” Zafar asserted, “is the intention and ultimate goal each seeks to promote. Whereas many secularists champion individual privileges, Islam promotes the principle of uniting mankind and cultivating love and understanding among people. Both endorse freedom for people to express themselves, but Islam promotes unity, whereas modern-day free speech advocates promote individualism.”

This glossy Orwellian language, “uniting mankind and cultivating love and understanding among people,” masked the insidious goal of the article, which became clear when Zafar decried “the most vocal proponents of freedom of speech,” who would “call us towards a different path, where people can say anything and everything on their mind. With no restraint on speech at all, every form of provocation would exist, thereby cultivating confrontation and antagonism. They insist this freedom entitles them the legal privilege to insult others. This is neither democracy nor freedom of speech. It fosters animosity, resentment and disorder.”

Note the sleight of hand: “With no restraint on speech at all, every form of provocation would exist, thereby cultivating confrontation and antagonism.” Zafar was implying that the Muslims who have rioted and killed because of perceived affronts to Islam were not responsible for their own actions, but that those who supposedly provoked them were.

This is an increasingly widespread confusion in the West, willfully spread by people like Zafar and his Islamic supremacist allies. In reality, the only person responsible for his actions is the person who is acting, not anyone else. You may provoke me in a hundred ways, but my response is my own, which I choose from a range of possible responses, and only I am responsible for it.

But having established that if someone riots and kills in response to someone else’s speech, the fault lies with the speaker, not the rioter, Zafar drove his point home: speech must be restricted in the interests of “world peace”: “Treating speech as supreme at the expense of world peace and harmony is an incredibly flawed concept. No matter how important the cause of free speech, it still pales in comparison to the cause of world peace and unity.”

In other words, speech considered to be not in accord with “world peace and harmony” will be outlawed, although Zafar then backtracked and claimed that “Islam does not prescribe any worldly punishment for unseemly speech. So people who insult should not be persecuted. Islam grants everyone the right to express disagreements with others. After all, the Prophet Muhammad called differences of opinion a blessing in society and never sought to censor or threaten those who verbally attacked him.”

Actually, according to a manual of Islamic law certified as reliable by al-Azhar, the foremost institution in Sunni Islam, Islam mandates death for non-Muslim subjects of the Islamic state who mention “something impermissible about Allah, the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), or Islam” (‘Umdat al-Salik, o11.10).

This ruling is based on the example of Muhammad himself, who several times ordered people who had criticized him to be put to death. Thus the irony gets even thicker when in the Huffington Post article Zafar declares: “Let’s discuss the life and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, his rightly guided Khalifas and even the Quranic verses that are deceptively twisted to justify violence. Let’s combat immorality and intolerance through maturity, integrity and dialogue.”

I’ve written a book about the life and teachings of Muhammad as recorded in the earliest Islamic traditions: The Truth About Muhammad. I’ve discussed at length Qur’an verses that Islamic jihadists use to justify violence in another book, The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Koran. But instead of engaging in my actual arguments in either one, Zafar mischaracterizes my statements about the Mufti and dismisses me as an “anti-Islam blogger.”

The point here is not about me. It is about the unwillingness and apparent inability of apologists for Islamic supremacism such as Harris Zafar to engage in rational discussion and debate, even as they pretend to call for it. Twelve years have now passed since 9/11, and not a single self-proclaimed moderate Muslim has published an exegesis of the Qur’anic verses that are used to incite violence that would blunt the force of that incitement. Instead, ad hominem attacks against those who call attention to this use of the Qur’an, and crafty straw man arguments, are the only thing we ever get from Islamic spokesmen.

If Harris Zafar or any other Muslim spokesman is ready to abandon this ultimately self-defeating approach and recognize how it enables jihad terrorists, I stand ready with an open invitation to them to engage in genuine discussion, dialogue and debate, in which we discuss what really can be done to end Islamic jihad violence once and for all and establish lasting peace.

But I won’t be holding my breath.

Robert Spencer in PJ Lifestyle:
The Hypocrisy of Ibrahim Hooper and CAIR’s “Islamophobic List”

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir/)


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/robert-spencer-in-pj-lifestyle-the-hypocrisy-of-ibrahim-hooper-and-cairs-islamophobic-list/


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Hooper2-300x225.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Hooper2.jpg)

In PJ Lifestyle (http://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2014/01/20/the-hypocrisy-of-ibrahim-hooper-and-cairs-islamophobic-list/) today I discuss how Hamas-linked CAIR’s “Islamophobia”-mongering is designed — with surpassing cynicism — to make Americans think that any criticism of Islamic texts that jihadis use to incite violence worldwide threatens and endangers Muslims at home who don’t approve of that violence in the first place.
Ibrahim “Honest Ibe” Hooper of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) last week sent out a crafty and deceptive op-ed as a “service,” and of course our lazy, clueless and compromised mainstream media was happy to oblige him by publishing it. The op-ed (http://www.salem-news.com/articles/january142014/muslim-bias-mi.php), “Islamophobic ‘List’ Used to Justify Suspicion of Muslims,” seems to have been a response to Pamela Geller’s recent exhaustive summary at Breitbart (http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2014/01/09/The-Islamization-of-America-in-2013) of Islamic jihad and supremacist activity in America in 2013. In response, Hooper offered not honesty and reform, but disingenuousness and deception.

Hooper claimed that,
“one of the bigoted themes often promoted by the growing cottage industry of Muslim-bashers is that the increasing level of Islamophobia online and in the public arena is merely a legitimate response to the violent actions of Muslims worldwide.”
He thus reveals the dishonesty at the heart of the entire “Islamophobia” initiative: Islamic supremacists and leftists use the term to refer both to analyses of how Islamic jihadis use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism (e.g., what my colleagues and I do) and also to attacks on innocent Muslims (which neither I nor my colleague nor any decent person favors).

The objective is to make Americans think that any criticism of Islamic texts that jihadis use to incite violence worldwide threatens and endangers Muslims at home who don’t approve of that violence in the first place. Then by saying that “Muslim-bashers” claim that “Islamophobia” is a “legitimate response to the violent actions of Muslims worldwide,” Hooper is implying that those who decry violence and terror committed by Muslims in the name of Islam approve of violence against innocent, peaceful Muslims, as if to say, they had it coming.

Hooper cannily designs all this to obscure the real point: that people are suspicious of Islam because of jihad terror attacks — but not just because of them, but also because of the endless mau-mauing, intimidating, opposition to counter-terror efforts, claiming of victim status, faked hate crimes, smear campaigns against foes of jihad terror, and all the other things that make people suspicious of Hamas-linked CAIR and other Muslim organizations in the U.S.

No genuine attack on any innocent person, Muslim or otherwise, is ever justified. If Hamas-linked CAIR really wants to stop such attacks, it could do so by working sincerely to end the suspicions people have of Islam and Muslims — not with disingenuous “outreach” sessions designed to dispel “misconceptions” about Islam (i.e., spread more misconceptions about Islam, fool people into thinking it is a “Religion of Peace,” etc.), but by honestly working within Muslim communities and with law enforcement to root out jihadis and teach against the understanding of Islam that creates jihadis. Instead, Hamas-linked CAIR has opposed virtually every counter-terror measure that has ever been proposed, and one of its California chapters distributed a poster reading “Don’t talk to the FBI.”

You might wonder why Hamas-linked CAIR would do this if it wants to end “Islamophobia” (in the sense of suspicion of Islam) — surely Hooper, Awad and co. must know that those things increase such suspicion? Yes, I am sure they do — but in fact they want “Islamophobia” (both suspicion of Islam and attacks on peaceful Muslims) because they can use such attacks to claim victim status and the privileges that come with it, intimidate officials into thinking that surveillance of Islamic organizations is unjustified and endangers innocent people.

“These Islamophobes,” Hooper also asserted, “scour the Internet to highlight every act of violence or political instability that can be tied to Islam and Muslims.” At my website Jihad Watch (http://www.jihadwatch.org/), I chronicle Islamic jihad activity in the U.S. and around the worldwide, and I never in ten years have had to “scour the Internet” to do so. On the contrary, there is so much jihad violence that rarely am I able to post all the news items I’d like to post; time and resources limit the ones I can get to. Whatever I have on Jihad Watch, there is always more jihad. But Hooper, of course, would prefer you didn’t know that.

“If a Muslim in a remote village in Pakistan,” he continues, “violates Islamic beliefs by abusing his wife, we will hear about it and about why Islam should be blamed for his actions.
Reports on every crime committed by a Muslim are assigned to the faith, whether or not there is even a remote religious connection.”

Here again Hooper characterizes his opponents’ arguments in a reductionist way that unfairly trivializes them. The point is not that “Islam should be blamed” for someone abusing his wife, but that if the abuser used Islam to justify that abuse, then Muslim leaders who oppose such abuse should work honestly to make sure it doesn’t happen again by removing or reforming the things that are used to provide such justification. Are there any? Yes. The Qur’an says it:
“Men are the managers of the affairs of women for that God has preferred in bounty one of them over another, and for that they have expended of their property. Righteous women are therefore obedient, guarding the secret for God’s guarding. And those you fear may be rebellious admonish; banish them to their couches, and beat them.” (Qur’an 4:34)
Hooper would still say that the abuser “violates Islamic beliefs,” because Islamic apologists routinely claim that the Qur’an’s command to beat disobedient women must be applied only with the most harmless of implements — i.e., a toothstick, as per a weak hadith. However, Muhammad’s example is normative for Muslims, since he is an “excellent example of conduct” (Qur’an 33:21) – and according to a canonical hadith, Muhammad’s favorite wife, his child bride Aisha, reports that Muhammad struck her. Once he went out at night after he thought she was asleep, and she followed him surreptitiously. Muhammad saw her, and, as Aisha recounts: “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” (Sahih Muslim 2127) Aisha herself said it: “I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women.” (Sahih Bukhari 7.72.715)

So is this blaming Islam for spousal abuse? A more constructive way to put it would be: this is pointing out how spousal abusers justify their actions by pointing to Islamic texts, and these texts need reforming and reinterpretation on a large scale.

Canadian Threatened with Honor Killing for Dating Non-Muslim


http://blazingcatfur.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/ottawa-mother-son-convicted-of.html


OTTAWA — A mother and son, both Pakistani immigrants, were found guilty of several criminal charges Wednesday for harassing and threatening the daughter of the family after she “dishonoured” them for courting a “white guy.”

Both had threatened to kill the daughter and her non-Muslim boyfriend whom she had met while working with him at a McDonald’s restaurant.

Ontario Superior Court Judge Monique Metivier found the mother, Iqbal Bibi, guilty on two counts of uttering threats and one charge of intimidation, and her son, Khawar Saeed, guilty of one count each of criminal harassment, uttering threats, and intimidation.

They will be sentenced April 30. (http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/Mother+convicted+threatening+woman+boyfriend+with+ honour+killing/9418418/story.html)

Amazingly Islam isn't mentioned once in the story....

FBI worried about U.S. Muslims getting “radicalized” in Syria and then returning home to wage jihad (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/fbi-worried-about-u-s-muslims-getting-radicalized-in-syria-and-then-returning-home-to-wage-jihad/)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/James-Comey_2597228b-300x187.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/James-Comey_2597228b.jpg)

The headline is, of course, my summary of what was said. The FBI didn’t say they were concerned about Muslims or jihad. Comey can’t say that; it’s against Obama Administration policy. What he said was, “We are focused on trying to figure out what our people are up to — who should be spoken to, who should be followed, who should be charged. It’s something we are intensely focused on.” He is “intensely focused” on this — just don’t ask him which of “our people” might be likely to go to Syria and get “radicalized,” or what they might get “radicalized” into. If anyone did dare ask Comey that, he would reach deep into his bag of euphemisms and come out with something like “radical extremists,” which wouldn’t reveal much of anything about this great foe that cannot be named.
“Americans radicalized by Al Qaeda are a big concern,” by Richard A. Serrano for the Los Angeles Times (http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-alqaeda-threat-20140119,0,2636297.story#axzz2rTJQSRRa), January 18:
WASHINGTON — With Al Qaeda militants surging in the Middle East and North Africa, top U.S. law enforcement officials are increasingly concerned about efforts to recruit and radicalize American citizens by drawing them to the restive region and sending them back to this country to carry out terrorist attacks.

FBI Director James B. Comey calls the threat one of the bureau’s top priorities and said the agency is working to identify and track U.S. residents who travel overseas, embrace Al Qaeda ideology and return to the United States.

“We are focused on trying to figure out what our people are up to — who should be spoken to, who should be followed, who should be charged,” Comey said in a recent meeting with reporters at FBI headquarters. “It’s something we are intensely focused on.”

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, says that Al Qaeda, which has turned into a number of splinter groups, is just as ominous a threat as it was on Sept. 11, 2001. “Al Qaeda is not on the run, but is in fact growing in strength at an alarming rate across the Middle East and North Africa,” he said at a committee hearing Wednesday.
Indeed. And why is that? Could it have anything to do with Obama’s weakness and fecklessness, and his arming of jihadists in Syria and Libya?
In a reminder of Al Qaeda’s resurgence, fighters associated with the network seized control this month over parts of the Iraqi city of Fallouja and continue to play a key role in opposition groups seeking to overthrow the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.), who has closely studied the threat of Americans radicalized abroad, agrees that Al Qaeda remains far from defeated, although it is less centralized. “In many ways the threat is more dangerous than it was before,” he said. “And we have to deal with it in a more intelligent way.”
Ain’t that the truth. One more intelligent thing we could do would be stop being so coy about where exactly the threat is coming from, and what the motives and goals are of those who are doing the threatening. How can we possibly defeat an enemy we are afraid to name and refuse to speak honestly about?
Two cases of radicalized Americans surfaced last year.

Nicole Lynn Mansfield, a nurse from Flint, Mich., died while fighting alongside anti-government militants in northern Syria. Thirty-three years old, she was among three killed in May after she reportedly tossed a grenade from a passing car at Syrian government soldiers, who then opened fire on the vehicle.

Mansfield was still carrying her Michigan driver’s license. Also found in her vehicle was a banner for one of the Al Qaeda-linked rebel fronts fighting in Syria. She had married a man from Dubai and converted to Islam. The pair had participated in a Washington rally in support of Egypt’s “Arab Spring.”

The other radicalized American is Eric Harroun, a former U.S. Army private from Tucson, who pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy to violate arms-control laws after fighting in Syria alongside Al Nusra Front, a branch of Al Qaeda that the U.S. has designated a terrorist organization.

Harroun, 31, was never deployed by the Army to the region. He went to Syria on his own last January, and began posting images and videos on the Internet showing the fighting and complaining about Assad.
It is ridiculous to consider either Mansfield or Harroun as examples of Americans who went overseas and, lo and behold, somehow ended up radicalized. Clearly they were already “radicalized” as Muslims in the U.S., or they wouldn’t have gone into the Syrian war zone in the first place.
He initially faced a sentence of up to 30 years for firing a rocket-propelled grenade during a clash in Syria. He was arrested in March, and then released upon his guilty plea in September, having served six months in jail.

In a “statement of facts” unsealed Jan. 9 in his federal court case, which Harroun signed, prosecutors said he “acted unlawfully and knowingly and not because of mistake, accident or other innocent reason,” making clear the U.S. government believes he joined the militants on purpose and was radicalized into their ideology.

Two others in recent years were radicalized in Pakistan, then returned to the U.S. and came dangerously close to carrying out bombings in New York. Najibullah Zazi, an Afghan American, schemed to blow up the subway with backpack bombs, and Faisal Shahzad, an American born in Pakistan, attempted to detonate a car bomb in Times Square.

Zazi, 28, was arrested in 2009 and admitted he was “recruited” by Pakistani militants to hit the crowded transit system with a series of suicide bombs. He pleaded guilty and was facing life in prison, but his sentence was postponed and he was later reportedly moved to a secret location.

Shahzad, 34, was arrested in 2010 after trying to detonate a car bomb in Times Square. He, too, pleaded guilty and admitted he had received bomb-making training in Pakistan. He was sentenced to life in prison with no parole.

Federal law enforcement officials say they have been tracing other U.S. residents traveling abroad, specifically Somali Americans from Minnesota who have gone to fight in that country. They are also watching several individuals identified soon after the Sept. 11 attacks, such as half a dozen men from the Buffalo suburb of Lackawanna, N.Y., who trained at an Al Qaeda facility in Afghanistan.

Comey says these suspects are always the most difficult to identify and stop. He suggests it is all the more challenging today because Al Qaeda has been “metastasizing” into splinter groups in Iraq, Syria and Libya.

Although the FBI previously had “great success” against Al Qaeda in the group’s traditional Afghanistan-Pakistan region, he said, “in the ungoverned or poorly governed spaces in Africa and around the Middle East, we see a resurgence of Al Qaeda affiliates.”

Former Rep. Jane Harman of California, who used to be chairwoman of a House Homeland Security subcommittee and is now president of the Wilson Center, a Washington think tank, told McCaul’s committee that one of the biggest challenges was identifying disgruntled Americans or immigrants who might be susceptible to violence.

“Lone wolves are a big part of this problem,” she said. “We need to have an effective system that can spot bad guys and prevent and disrupt plots against us.”
One thing that would make for a more effective system would be to stop this puerile talk of “bad guys” and have the courage to name the enemy.

Appeals Court Upholds Saudi Student's Life Sentence

by Abha Shankar

http://www.investigativeproject.org/4274/appeals-court-upholds-saudi-student-life-sentence



A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction and life sentence (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2063.pdf) for a Saudi Arabian student who plotted a series of attacks in 2011, including on targeting the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2303.pdf) claims by Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari (http://www.investigativeproject.org/case/512) that his sentence is excessive and that his trial was unfair due to the use of information gathered under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Aldawsari, who came to the United States on a student visa in 2008, was charged (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1805.pdf) in 2011 in connection with plots to attack President Bush's home, hydroelectric dams and nuclear plants. The nine-page opinion (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2302.pdf) rejected all of the issues Aldawsari raised.

Court records (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1488.pdf) show Aldawsari bought chemicals online to make an improvised explosive device (IED). Federal agents found finding bomb-making materials, including concentrated sulphuric and nitric acids, glass beakers and flasks, wiring, clocks, and a Hazmat suit during a search of his home. Agents also discovered a journal that showed that Aldawsari had been plotting a terrorist attack in the United States for years. An entry in the journal revealed that Aldawsari obtained a scholarship from a Saudi corporation to enable him to come to the United States and plot jihad. The scholarship "will help tremendously in providing me with the support I need for Jihad, God willing," he wrote (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1488.pdf#page=12). "And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for jihad."

A search of Aldawsari's computer showed potential targets for attack in the U.S., including details of three U.S. military personnel who had served at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, names of dams in Colorado and California, and the President's Bush's Dallas address.

Returning Terrorists 'a Serious Threat' to Canada
CSIS report presented to parliament details threat of Canadians joining Al Qaeda-linked groups abroad, returning to commit terror.
By Dalit Halevi, Ari Yashar


http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/176835#.UuqmmSfTncc

Terrorists (file)
Flash 90

The Canadian Security Intelligence Services (CSIS) presented a report to the parliament in Ottowa on Monday detailing the security threats posed to Canada. Prime among the dangers was listed the phenomenon of Canadians traveling to Syria and other Arab countries to join Al Qaeda-linked groups.

If these traveling Canadians "participate in a foreign conflict or train with a terrorist group, they might return with certain operational skills that can be deployed themselves or taught to fellow Canadian extremists. Either way, this is a serious security threat to Canada," notes the report.

Michel Coulombe, Director of CSIS, reported that in the recent years the intelligence agency has dealt with a rising number of attempts by foreign intelligence agents to obtain sensitive information concerning fields such as aviation, biotechnology, chemicals, communications, nuclear energy and oil.

The threat is much more complex than in the past according to Coulombe, as it is much easier to steal thousands of documents. This point was highlighted recently by National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/175485), who leaked massive amounts of secret documents.

In addition to the danger of information theft, Coulombe warned about dozens of Canadians who have left for Syria and other Arab countries to take part in terror-related groups. It is feared that these individuals will return to Canada with the experience and knowledge to carry out terror attacks.

There have been several reports of Canadian citizens being killed while fighting for jihadist forces in Syria.

Last November it was reported that the Canadian citizen Abu Abd Al-Rahman (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/174031) had been killed earlier in the year during clashes in the city of Aleppo.

Just last Sunday Islamist sources in Syria reported that two Canadian Christians who converted (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/Flash.aspx/285261) to Islam died fighting for Al Qaeda-linked groups. One was killed by the Free Syrian Army during an internal power struggle among rebels in Aleppo, while the other was killed in a battle for an Aleppo airport.

CSIS's fears are borne out by reports that foreign nationals are being trained in Syria by Al Qaeda to carry out attacks in their home countries (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/176542).

Detroit News lauds billboards touting Islam without mentioning sponsoring group’s ties to Muslim Brotherhood (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/detroit-news-lauds-billboards-touting-islam-without-mentioning-sponsoring-groups-ties-to-muslim-brotherhood)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/detroit-news-lauds-billboards-touting-islam-without-mentioning-sponsoring-groups-ties-to-muslim-brotherhood (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/detroit-news-lauds-billboards-touting-islam-without-mentioning-sponsoring-groups-ties-to-muslim-brotherhood)


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/ICNA-logo-300x138.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/ICNA-logo.jpg)

Mark Hicks says that GainPeace is “associated with the Islamic Circle of North America.” He doesn’t see fit to mention that the Islamic Circle of North America was listed as a Muslim Brotherhood organization in a captured internal Muslim Brotherhood document, “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America (http://www.investigativeproject.org/document/id/20),” which explains that the Brotherhood’s agenda in the U.S. is subversive: the Muslim Brothers “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

Nor does Hicks bother to note that a former ICNA leader has been convicted of jihad war crimes in Bangadesh (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/11/bangladesh-convicts-former-islamic-circle-of-north-america-leader-of-war-crimes). He says nothing about how ICNA has promoted donations to jihad (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/05/muslim-brotherhood-linked-icna-promotes-donations-to-jihad). He is likewise mum about its ties to the Pakistani Islamic supremacist group Jamaat-e-Islami, as well as about its anti-American, anti-Israel speakers (http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6380) who have promoted violent jihad.

Indeed, there is not a single word in this article that is remotely critical of ICNA or its billboard proselytizing. Contrast that to Hicks’ article about my appearance at a conference in Michigan last August, where I debated two Muslim spokesmen, Shadid Lewis and Mustafa Akyol. Hicks led off his story about that event with one compact paragraph that invokes the Norwegian mass murder Anders Breivik, whose murders the mainstream media was avid to blame falsely on me; the smears of the ADL and SPLC against my name and reputation; and the British ban, which was the product of a similar smear campaign. Hicks doesn’t say “smear campaign,” of course, and doesn’t balance any of this with even one word about why I might not be responsible for Brievik’s murders, or why the ADL and SPLC might not be entirely trustworthy sources, or why the British ban might reflect more on the British government’s cowardice and desire to appease Islamic supremacists than on my work. He then goes on to quote Dawud Walid of Hamas-linked CAIR. He never asked me for a quote — of course.

And now he publishes this ICNA press release. This is what passes for journalism these days. Please drop Hicks a note at mhicks@detroitnews.com (mhicks@detroitnews.com) and ask him, politely, calmly, and courteously, why he didn’t report about ICNA’s Muslim Brotherhood ties and jihadist connections, and why he chose to report everything negative about a foe of jihad terror without any balancing or even explanatory information.

Note also: have you ever seen Pamela Geller’s AFDI ad campaigns, defending Israel, women threatened with honor killings, and the freedom of conscience, and telling the truth about jihad and Islamic apartheid, etc., get this kind of fawning coverage from anyone in the mainstream media?

“Group hopes I-96 billboard helps educate others about Islam,” by Mark Hicks for The Detroit News (http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140202/RELIGION/302020036/Group-hopes-96-billboard-helps-educate-others-about-Islam?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|FRONTPAGE), February 2:
Perched along Interstate 96 near Milford Road for the past month, a large red billboard asks travelers in the thousands of vehicles that pass it daily: “What is Islam? Who are the Muslims?”

The sign in Oakland County also lists a phone number and website for GainPeace, a Chicago nonprofit associated with the Islamic Circle of North America.

The curious who follow through have the chance to earn a free copy of the Quran, the Muslim holy book, and learn more about the religion, which is the aim of the group’s campaign.

“We want to do away with the misconceptions people have about the fundamentals of Islam,” said Sabeel Ahmed, national director of GainPeace.

The initiative, launched in cities nationwide and in Canada, started several years ago yet gained momentum in the wake of the controversy in 2012 surrounding the film “Innocence of Muslims.” The video shared online was considered anti-Islamic and sparked international outrage.

Inaccurate depictions and beliefs about Muslims have persisted since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Ahmed said. Countering that with education, he said, is essential not only for improving perceptions but fulfilling one of the Muslim faith’s goal of educating others.

The campaign continues as the [Hamas-linked] Council on American-Islamic Relations–Michigan has in recent years logged more complaints from Muslims of workplace discrimination, harassment by officials at the U.S.-Canada border and bullying at school, said Dawud Walid, the group’s executive director.

Intolerance rises after extremist acts some connect with mainstream Muslims, he said, and is supported when public figures share misguided views about the religion.

“We believe as a civil rights organization that much of the discrimination that Muslims face is based upon ignorance of our faith and who we are as human beings,” Walid said. “So the more education, the less likelihood that people who learn about Muslims will bully or harass them.”

GainPeace put up billboards last year in the Flint area as well as ran ads in newspapers and on a cable TV show featuring Islamic scholars, Ahmed said. Literature has also been distributed.

While some response was negative, others welcomed the efforts and there are plans for another billboard, said Mohammed Saleem, vice president of the Flint Islamic Center. “We are trying to educate our community, our neighborhoods,” he said.

Boston: Muslim sues hospital after being fired for refusing un-Islamic flu shot (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/boston-muslim-sues-hospital-after-being-fired-for-refusing-un-islamic-flu-shot)

Wherever Islamic law and practice and American law and practice conflict, it is American law and practice that have to give way — even if the public health is thereby endangered. “Boston Children’s Hospital: Until Every Child Is Well” — except those exposed to the flu.

“Muslim who says she was fired for refusing flu shot sues Children’s Hospital Boston,” by Eric Convey for Boston Business Journal (http://www.bizjournals.com/boston/news/2014/02/04/muslim-who-says-she-was-fired-for.html), February 4 (thanks to Pamela Geller (http://pamelageller.com/2014/02/boston-childrens-hospital-sued-muslima-non-halal-flu-shot.html/)):
A former Children’s Hospital Boston employee who said she was fired because her Islamic beliefs prohibited her from getting a mandatory flu shot sued the hospital today.

Leontine Robinson says in her complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Boston that her civil rights were violated because the hospital “intentionally discriminated against (her) due to her religious beliefs.” Some Muslims refuse flu shots because they contain a small amount of pork gelatine — a violation, the abstainers contend, of restrictions on consuming pork products.

Robinson, according to her complaint, worked in patient care at Children’s for about a year before a flu shot requirement was instituted in 2006. Hospital managers had known she was a Muslim when they hired her, the suit suggests, noting that she wore a traditional Muslim head-covering for women.

She was allowed to skip the shots initially. But in 2011, the suit states, Childrens’ policy became more strict and getting a job was classified by the hospital as a “term of employment.” Robinson was fired for refusing to get one, the suit states.

Robinson wants back pay and other compensation. She says in her complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Boston that the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission dismissed a similar complaint she had filed with the agency against Children’s.

Children’s did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

At Least 50 US Citizens Fighting in Syrian Rebel Factions
US intelligence officials release estimate of how many US citizens are fighting in rebel factions, express concern over terrorism at home.

By Tova Dvorin

US Intelligence officials estimate that at least 50 US citizens are fighting in Syria against President Bashar Assad, and are liable to bring terrorism back to the US once the war is over, according to the Los Angeles Times.

James Clapper, the US director of national intelligence, told the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday that as many as 7,500 foreign nationals are fighting in Syria from 50 countries. The estimate is much lower than reports from Syrian sources, who claim that the number is at least ten times (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/176980) that much - reaching over 75,000.

An official told the Times that the number of Americans estimated to be fighting in the war is about 50, the first concrete estimate given by a US authority, according to the daily. Earlier estimates (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/171865) provided a wide range - between 10 and 60.

Clapper expressed concern about the threat the US fighters could pose once they return, citing evidence that Al Qaeda has been training foreign nationals (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/176542) to bring the Islamic holy war outside of the Middle East.

“Not only are fighters being drawn to Syria, but so are technologies and techniques that pose particular problems to our defenses,” Clapper said. FBI Director James B. Comey added that counter-terrorism experts are trying to locate and track US nationals involved in the fighting who have already returned home.

This is not the first time that concerns have been raised about the presence of western-born and raised Al Qaeda fighters in Syria, including on the front lines of key battles.

In July, a US passport (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/170185) was found in an abandoned base that served the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) organization, after Kurdish fighters pushed back Islamist forces in northern Syria following fierce clashes.

More recently, the Times notes, US citizen and Army veteran Eric Harroun, a Phoenix native, was charged with being involved with the Al Qaeda satellite the Al Nusra Front; Nicole Lynn Mansfield, a convert to Islam from Flint, Michigan, was killed after she joined a rebel faction in May.

While Western countries - especially the US and Britain - have backed the rebel forces during the three year conflict, western states have become uneasy over the growing influence of radical Islamist elements among the rebel movement.

Recently, funding for some extremist rebel groups has been revoked (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/175057), but foreign nationals - including many western citizens - continue to pour into Syria, and western security services are concerned about what this means for their own countries' future security.

The Western countries have become so concerned, in fact, that they have reached out (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/176342) to Assad's regime forces over the issue - but no progress has yet been made.

National Council of Canadian Muslims directors praised Muslim Brotherhood founder, vowed to implement his doctrine in Canada (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/national-council-of-canadian-muslims-directors-praised-muslim-brotherhood-founder-vowed-to-implement-his-doctrine-in-canada)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/nccm-haffajee-k-300x170.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/nccm-haffajee-k.jpg)

Now the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is suing the Canadian Prime Minister for daring to suggest they have ties to Hamas (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/hamas-linked-canadian-muslim-group-accuses-harper-government-official-of-libel-for-saying-it-has-hamas-ties), which styles itself “the Muslim Brotherhood for Palestine.”

“Current NCCM / CAIR-CAN Director Khadija Haffajee was on the Editorial advisory board of a magazine hailing the Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna as ‘a True Guide,’” from Point de Bascule (http://www.pointdebasculecanada.ca/articles/10003304-nccm-cair-can-director-khadija-haffajee-editorial-advisory-board-muslim-brotherhood-al-banna.html), February 7:
Hassan al-Banna was described as a role model by three senior directors of the NCCM / CAIR-CAN
When CAIR-CAN became the National Council of Canadian Muslims, it presented itself (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10003068-press-release-%E2%80%93-cair-can-becomes-the-national-council-of-canadian-muslims.html) as “a leading voice that enriches Canadian society through Muslim civic engagement and the promotion of human rights.”

This description is misleading given the fact that many of the leaders of the NCCM / CAIR-CAN (past and present) have collaborated with organizations (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/articles/10003291-harper-s-director-of-communications-sharper-s-director-of-communications-nccm-cair-can-%E2%80%9Cdocumented-ties-to-a-terrorist-organization-such-as-hamas%E2%80%9D.html) in Canada and abroad whose track records are incompatible with human rights. Although the NCCM / CAIR-CAN Executive Director Ihsaan Gardee claimed in a CBC interview (http://www.cbc.ca/m/touch/video/clips/ys_2433386393.html?st=myregion&ln=canada-kitchenerwaterloo&pid=2433386393) that his organization has never had any relationship with the Washington-based Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), documents issued by his own organization prove otherwise (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/articles/10003291-harper-s-director-of-communications-sharper-s-director-of-communications-nccm-cair-can-%E2%80%9Cdocumented-ties-to-a-terrorist-organization-such-as-hamas%E2%80%9D.html).

In the context of the NCCM’s recent defamation suit (http://www.thestar.com/opinion/commentary/2014/02/03/canadian_ngo_why_we_are_suing_the_prime_ministers_ office.html) against the PMO for having linked the NCCM to Hamas, discussing the relationship between Washington-based CAIR and the NCCM / CAIR-CAN is all the more relevant given the fact that in a 2009 American case (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1425.pdf), a federal judge concluded that “The [U.S.] government has produced ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR, ISNA [and other organizations] with Hamas.”

The NCCM / CAIR-CAN’s claim that it is committed to human rights can also be challenged by looking at the ideologues endorsed by the leaders of this organization over the years. Given the fact that important leaders of the NCCM / CAIR-CAN have openly endorsed ideologues whose goal is to establish a totalitarian society based on sharia, this organization must be considered a threat to human rights and definitely not a source of enrichment for Canadian society.

One such totalitarian ideologue who has been endorsed by prominent NCCM / CAIR-CAN directors is Hassan al-Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. Al-Banna advocated the establishment of a society based on sharia and in his essay To what do we invite humanity?, he praised Hitler as a role model for Muslims looking for “success, influence and fortune (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/images/data/images/Personalites/al-banna%20hitler.jpg).” As a matter of fact, when the New York Times announced Hassan al-Banna’s death in 1949, it highlighted that his organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, had become a movement “with mystic and fascist overtones (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/articles/1364-new-york-times-1948-1949-muslim-brotherhoods-terrorist-activities-made-the-headlines.html).”

Hassan al-Banna was openly endorsed by at least three senior NCCM / CAIR-CAN directors. In 1999, before the incorporation of CAIR-CAN, current NCCM director Khadija Haffajee was on the Editorial advisory board of Islamic Horizons when the magazine hailed Hassan al-Banna as “a True Guide (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10003205-isna-praises-hassan-al-banna-in-islamic-horizons.html).”

In 2004, while he was on CAIR-CAN’s Board (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002928-cair-can-leadership.html), Jamal Badawi described al-Banna as “most inspirational (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/images/data/pdf/0%20ind%20badawi%20%20-%20al-banna.pdf).” Badawi added that “More than any other individual he [al-Banna] has epitomised twentieth century Islamic thought and ideology.”

In 2012, while he was a CAIR-CAN director (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002928-cair-can-leadership.html), Wael Haddara was also the president of the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC). MAC’s website proclaimed (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/images/data/pdf/0%20org%20mac%20origin.pdf) back then that “MAC’s [...] modern roots can be traced to the Islamic revival of the early twentieth century, culminating in the movement of the Muslim Brotherhood. […] MAC adopts and strives to implement Islam […] as understood in its contemporary context by the late Imam, Hassan Albanna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. MAC regards this ideology as the best representation of Islam as delivered by Prophet Muhammad.” The same mission statement was already posted on MAC’s website in 2005 (http://web.archive.org/web/20050414152041/http:/www.macnet.ca/national/modules/wfchannel/index.php?pagenum=7) when Jamal Badawi and Wael Haddara were both MAC directors (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002928-cair-can-leadership.html) and CAIR-CAN directors (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002928-cair-can-leadership.html).

According to the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch (http://www.globalmbwatch.com/2013/08/21/recommended-reading-former-mac-president-wael-haddara-was-senior-advisor-to-egyptian-president-mohammed-morsi/), “The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) appears to be one of the only organizations in the world that has acknowledged its ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Wael Haddara resigned (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002880-wael-haddara-resigns-from-cair-can-board-of-directors.html) his position on CAIR-CAN’s Board of Directors in April 2012. On December 12, 2012, MAC issued a press release announcing Haddara’s resignation as president of the organization for “personal reasons (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002893-wael-haddara-resigned-from-the-board-of-the-muslim-association-of-canada-the-new-president-is-yasser-mohammed.html).” On December 28, 2012, Wael Haddara was identified in an official United Nations document (http://www.un.int/protocol/documents/67th%20GA%20FINAL%20LIST%20OF%20DELEGATIONS.pdf) as a member of the Egyptian delegation at the UN. He had become a close advisor (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/articles/10003096-former-mac-president-wael-haddara-was-senior-advisor-to-ousted-muslim-brotherhood-backed-egyptian-president-mohammed-morsi.html) to now deposed Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi. Haddara had just been promoted from the Muslim Brotherhood infrastructure in Canada to the original one in Egypt. This was the logical outcome of Wael Haddara’s involvement with CAIR-CAN and the Muslim Association of Canada.

Khadija Haffajee
CAIR-CAN was incorporated (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10003248-national-council-of-canadian-muslims-%E2%80%93-federal-corporation-information-2013-11-15.html) in 2000. When Khadija Haffajee joined its Board of Directors (either in 2000 or 2001 (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10002928-cair-can-leadership.html)), she was already on the Majlis al-Shura of the Islamic Society of North America, ISNA’s decision-making body. Khadija Haffajee was first elected (http://web.archive.org/web/20061024183630/http:/www.isna.net/about/profiles/Khadija_Haffaje.html) as an ISNA’s administrator in 1997 and re-elected in 2001 and 2004. As a member of ISNA’s leadership, she was on the Editorial advisory Board of Islamic Horizons. ISNA refers to its own publication as “ISNA’s flagship bi-monthly magazine (http://web.archive.org/web/20131213195811/http:/www.isna.net/islamic-horizons.html).”

Khadija Haffajee and another current NCCM director, Shahina Siddiqui, have presented their autobiographies in a book entitled Muslim Women Activists in North America: Speaking for Ourselves. It was edited by Katherine Bullock and released in 2005. As this article is being published, the portion of the book concerning Haffajee is still available on Google Books (http://books.google.ca/books?id=GLvQg-o9mnEC&pg=PA79#v=onepage&q&f=false).

ISNA was established in 1982 by the Muslim Brotherhood leadership in North America in order to mobilize and radicalize Muslims outside of college and university campuses. The Muslim Students Association (MSA) had already been established in 1963 to target Muslim students. In the 2009 American legal case (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1425.pdf) referred to previously, the judge remarked that a Muslim Brotherhood document produced as Exhibit 3-64 by the U.S. government “further ties ISNA to the Muslim Brotherhood by listing it as an ‘apparatus’ of the Brotherhood.”

ISNA is number 1 and MSA number 2 in a listing of 29 organizations affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood network in North America that was added to an internal memorandum (http://www.investigativeproject.org/document/id/20) written by an MB leader in 1991. In this memorandum, the goal pursued by the Muslim Brotherhood in North America is clearly presented:

POINT 4 (http://www.investigativeproject.org/document/id/20) The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions… It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes.”

This memorandum was made public after it was seized by police and produced for evidentiary purposes in a 2008 trial that led to the conviction of all accused in a terror financing case (http://globalmbreport.org/?p=1197). This excerpt was also quoted in the 2009 American legal case (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1425.pdf) referred to earlier.

In July 2013, the ISNA Development Foundation’s charitable status was revoked (http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/07/25/star_investigation_federal_audit_raises_concern_th at_canadian_charity_funded_terror.html) by the Canada Revenue Agency (http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/ebci/haip/srch/revcausesumm-eng.action?r=http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca:80/ebci/haip/srch/basicsearchresult-eng.action?k=isna&amp;s=+&amp;p=1&amp;b=true&bn=863919262RR0001) because it provided tax receipts for donations made to a non-status organization that was funding a jihadist organization in India. At the time, ISNA’s leaders claimed (http://www.isna.net/isna-clarifies-its-position-on-isna-canada.html) that “There has been no links of authority or responsibility between the United States and Canadian organizations for a few decades, despite the similarity of names.” When the charity status revocation occurred in July 2013, at least two administrators of ISNA-Canada (Mohamed Bekkari and Khalid Tarabain) were on the U.S.-based ISNA’s Board (ISNA’s Board in June 2013 (http://web.archive.org/web/20130602203325/http:/www.isna.net/board-of-directors.html) – ISNA’s Board in August 2013 (http://web.archive.org/web/20130812143051/http:/www.isna.net/board-of-directors.html)).

Hassan al-Banna’s 50-point Manifesto
One of the articles praising Hassan al-Banna in the March-April 1999 edition of Islamic Horizons (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/archives/10003205-isna-praises-hassan-al-banna-in-islamic-horizons.html) highlighted an important proposal of his totalitarian program: getting rid of all political parties and replacing them by a one-party state (“He [al-Banna] called for mediation between [political] parties and even for their dissolution so they could emerge as a single entity serving according to the guidance of Islam.”)

This one-party state proposal is the first one in Hassan al-Banna’s 50-point Manifesto. According to Ikhwanweb (http://www.ikhwanweb.com/article.php?id=802&ref=search.php), the Muslim Brotherhood’s website, the Manifesto was part of a letter sent by Hassan al-Banna to many Muslim leaders in 1947, including the king and the prime minister of Egypt. It contains fifty proposals for a systematic implementation of sharia. They are grouped in three categories (1. Political, judicial and administrative; 2. Social and educational; 3. Economic). The 50-point Manifesto is available (http://pointdebasculecanada.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1456-the-50-point-manifesto-of-hassan-al&catid=9&Itemid=103) on Point de Bascule.

Here are some of the proposals advocated by Hassan al-Banna and those who revere him as their “True Guide”:…

Indiana: Muslim imprisoned for aiding al Qaeda says he is a resistance fighter, not a terrorist (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/indiana-muslim-imprisoned-for-aiding-al-qaeda-says-he-is-a-resistance-fighter-not-a-terrorist)

There is always a great deal of discussion in the mainstream media of what exactly constitutes a “terrorist.” Slyly dishonest Islamic supremacists in the U.S. such as Hamas-linked CAIR’s Hussam Ayloush reassure credulous audiences by proclaiming, “I condemn all terrorism, including state terrorism” — without bothering to explain that they don’t consider Islamic jihadists to be terrorists, but do consider Israeli forces and American troops in Afghanistan to be terrorists. Ultimately, the question of who and what constitutes a “terrorist” is subjective and useless. The still-unanswered and much more important question is whether or not the West is going to defend itself against Islamic jihad and the attempt to bring Sharia to free nations.

“Iraqi imprisoned in weapons plot defends insurgent activities, calls self ‘conquest resistant,’” from the Associated Press (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/02/08/iraqi-imprisoned-in-weapons-plot-defends-insurgent-activities-calls-self/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+foxnews%2Fnational+%28Interna l+-+US+Latest+-+Text%29), February 8:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – An Iraqi man convicted of trying to ship arms and cash to Al-Qaida in Iraq says he is not a terrorist. Instead, Waad Ramandan Alwan says in a letter to The Associated Press that he considers himself a resistance fighter.

Alwan is in a federal prison in Terre Haute, Ind., serving a 40-year-prison sentence after pleading guilty to taking part in a plot to ship thousands of dollars in cash and weapons from Kentucky to al-Qaida in Iraq in 2010 and 2011.

Prosecutors said Alwan worked with the Mujahidin Shura Council, a group that claimed responsibility for the deaths of three soldiers from the Fort Campbell-based 101st Airborne Division while they were patrolling about 60 miles south of Baghdad in June 2006.

Canada: Jihad mass murder plotter was Canadian Idol contestant — “We’ll break their backs in their own country” (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/canada-jihad-mass-murder-plotter-was-canadian-idol-contestant-well-break-their-backs-in-their-own-country)

He was a moderate — until he wasn’t. He was an ordinary Muslim, not an Islamist — until he starting talking about bomb making. He moved in and among the Muslim community — holding views on jihad violence and terrorism that the leaders of that community profess to reject and abhor. Khurram Sher is the living embodiment of the truth of what I am often vilified for saying, that there is no distinction in Muslim communities between those who hope to wage violent jihad and those who abhor it.

This doesn’t mean that all Muslims are terrorists or some other such nonsense. It simply means that those who hold to doctrines of violent jihad are not expelled from mosques, and mosques do not have programs teaching against these ideas that they ostensibly reject. “Former Canadian Idol contestant’s dinner chat moves from ice cream to ‘violent jihad’ on secret tapes, terrorism trial hears,” by Chris Cobb for Postmedia News (http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/02/11/former-canadian-idol-contestants-dinner-chat-moves-from-ice-cream-to-violent-jihad-on-secret-tapes-terrorism-trial-hears/), February 11:
OTTAWA — In a secretly-recorded conversation played publicly for the first time Tuesday, accused terrorism collaborator Khurram Sher discusses bomb making and appears to suggest a repatriation ceremony at Canadian Forces Base Trenton as a possible target.

The conversation between the 31-year-old Montreal-born pathologist and two alleged co-conspirators then turns to their bearded appearances, which brings a suggestion from Dr. Sher that they might shave and “wear Canadian colours.” To which one of his alleged co-conspirators responds: “We’ll break their backs in their own country.”

During the July 20, 2010 conversation, recorded by the RCMP using microphones hidden in the apartment where the trio met, Dr. Sher also speaks of the ease with which he could buy components for bomb making.

“I can just go to, like, a hardware store and buy a few things to build a bomb. I’m sure it’s possible.”

Crown prosecutor Jason Wakely had told the court earlier that the conversation shows that Dr. Sher and his alleged associates were bent on “violent jihad.”

Dr. Sher is pleading not guilty to conspiring with two others to facilitate a terrorist activity, which police have alleged also involved a possible bomb attack in the Ottawa area. His trial in an Ottawa courtroom began Monday.

The hour-long conversation played with a written transcript displayed on TV and computer screens takes place during a dinner and starts with a mundane exchange about the food, the benefits of gluten-free products and the merits of President’s Choice ice cream. One of the three reads the list of ingredients from the ice cream package.

The banter is often lighthearted and peppered with laughter.

After dinner, the conversation turns more political with talk of Afghanistan, Islam and secure ways of communicating….

Hamas-linked CAIR lies in smear campaign against Muslim reformer

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/hamas-linked-cair-lies-in-smear-campaign-against-muslim-reformer


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/SpencerMcCarthyJasser-300x143.png (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/SpencerMcCarthyJasser.png)

I know, I know: reporting that Hamas-linked CAIR is lying is like reporting that humans breathe oxygen. Still, this is a particularly egregious example, and it is important to set the record straight. Hamas-linked CAIR is here defaming Zuhdi Jasser, the nation’s premier (and virtually only) anti-jihad Muslim spokesman. I have had some differences with Jasser (you can see our 2011 debate here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihios1W7h0E)) about the nature of Islamic teaching and the necessity of reform in Islam, but there is no doubt that he is a strong voice against Hamas-linked CAIR and other malignant Islamic supremacist forces.

It is also highly likely that Hamas-linked CAIR is lying about Jasser’s supposed attempt to deny religious rights to Muslim military personnel, since Jasser is committed to Constitutional freedoms. There is no doubt, in any case, that they’re lying about me. In the first place, I never heard of the Abstraction Fund, which they say funds Jihad Watch. I am not familiar with all those who fund the David Horowitz Freedom Center, with which Jihad Watch is affiliated, and it is possible that Abstraction funds the Center, but they do not fund Jihad Watch directly. (They’re welcome to do so, and Jihad Watch is a 501c3 organization; Abstraction reps can contact me at director[at]jihadwatch.org).

More importantly, Hamas-linked CAIR claims that the Roman Catholic diocese of Sacramento called me a “key leader in the anti-Islam hate movement in the United States.” This is almost certainly a lie, for several reasons. One is that in its initial chest-thumping about the Sacramento bishop caving in to their smear campaign last June, CAIR never mentioned this — and Hamas-linked CAIR has never been one to shy away from using a weapon that their marks hand them. What’s more, I spoke at the event in question, and the diocese of Sacramento had an information booth there — a strange thing for the diocese to have done if they really wanted to shun a leader of a supposed “hate movement.” The official statement that the diocese sent to Kolbe Academy said only this: “The Bishop didn’t think that it was in the best interest of Kolbe Academy to have a controversial speaker at a conference on education.”

See? This is how Hamas-linked CAIR operates: they (and their allies, such as Reza Aslan’s Aslan Media) mount a campaign of defamation against a counter-jihad speaker (and it isn’t just me — they do it to everyone who stands up against jihad terror). A busy and ill-informed official, such as the Bishop of Sacramento, sees this campaign and caves in immediately, not because he agrees with Hamas-linked CAIR’s defamation, but simply because he doesn’t want any “controversy.” Groups like Hamas-linked CAIR and Reza Aslan’s Aslan Media know that it usually suffices just to stir up a spurious “controversy” over a counter-jihad speaker to get that speaker canceled, because big organizations (like the diocese of Sacramento) don’t want to be the focus of endless hysterical “news” stories and unwelcome media attention. Then when they cave, the anti-free speech fascists trumpet this as more evidence of the wickedness of the counter-jihad speaker, even though no judgment was actually made about the correctness of their charges at all: “See? He’s so hateful that the diocese of Sacramento wanted him dropped from a conference” — when actually the only thing that happened was that the jihad enabler kicked up a fuss where people didn’t want any fuss.

It’s an insidious tactic. Hamas-linked CAIR keeps using it because it works, and because the organizations that should be on to this as a tactic and ready to stand up for freedom and human rights are still unaware of it, and ready to cave at the first sign of “controversy.”

By the way, a couple of things Hamas-linked CAIR didn’t mention in connection with the diocese of Sacramento: Hamas-linked CAIR and Reza Aslan’s Aslan Media tried the same smear campaign when I debated a couple of Muslim spokesmen in Michigan a few months ago, at another Catholic conference. Not only did Earl Boyea, Bishop of Lansing, not cave, but he came to celebrate Mass at the event. Nor did Hamas-linked CAIR quote the National Catholic Register (http://www.ncregister.com/site/article/the-christian-muslim-gulf/) calling me “perhaps the foremost Catholic expert on Islam in our country,” or Catholic Insight calling me “one of the most insightful and learned scholars of Islam.” Truth doesn’t serve their agenda, doncha know.

“CAIR: ‘Religious Freedom’ Rep Funded by Same Group that Backs Islamophobes,” a press release from Hamas-linked CAIR (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/cair-religious-freedom-rep-funded-by-same-group-that-backs-islamophobes-244913251.html), February 11:
WASHINGTON, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today repeated its request to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) to investigate one of its own members, this time for being funded by the same group that backs a number of notorious Islamophobes.

Earlier this year, CAIR asked for an investigation of USCIRF Vice Chair Zuhdi Jasser for apparently seeking to deny religious rights to Muslim military personnel….

In a letter sent today to USCIRF Chairman Dr. Robert P. George, Corey Saylor, director of CAIR’s Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia, wrote in part:

“We are writing today to expand upon the concerns regarding Dr. Zuhdi Jasser that were expressed on our letter to you dated January 24, 2014. Additional information has come to light regarding the financial dependence of Dr. Jasser’s American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AIFD) on groups known for promoting Islamophobia in the United States.

“Tax filings for the New York-based Abstraction Fund reveal that between 2010 and 2012, Jasser’s organization accepted $45,000 in grants and contributions. In 2012, 82 percent of the Fund’s total $1,982,930 contributions and grants went to groups known for their active role in spreading anti-Islam prejudice.”…

Other Abstraction Fund-backed groups include Jihad Watch, an anti-Muslim blog published by Robert Spencer. The Boston Globe has described Spencer as a man who “depicts Islam as an inherently violent religion.” Spencer has referred to Islam’s Prophet Muhammad as a “con man. Someone who is knowing [sic] that what he is saying is false, but is fooling his followers.”

In June 2013, the Catholic Diocese of Sacramento requested that the Kolbe Academy, a Catholic school, rescind a speaking invitation they extended to Spencer. The diocese referred to Spencer as a “key leader in the anti-Islam hate movement in the United States.”…

Dhimmitude in Tennessee
The Nashville Jewish Federation apologizes for telling the truth about Islamic anti-Semitism.

Tennessee Islamists recently complained to their friend, Fox Channel 17 news reporter Sky Arnold, about a pamphlet that was inadvertently included in a pro-Israel booth at a school cultural/heritage fair. Looking to incite the Muslim community, the complainants posted this image of the pamphlet that addressed anti-Israel hate messages in Palestinian school materials.

http://cdn.frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/rt_edited-1.jpg (http://cdn.frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/rt_edited-1.jpg)

The pamphlet these young radical extremists are referring to looks like the same information that has been documented and catalogued by the translators at Palestinian Media Watch (http://www.palwatch.org/) (PMW) since 1996. A 2013 video from the Palestinian Authority TV of two young girls reciting a poem (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyRLyXCj3Lg&feature=player_embedded) about Jews as the “most evil among creations, barbaric monkeys,” is only one of the many examples that validate the assertions in the pamphlet. There are many more including:

- This young girl’s poem recitation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvWABooXDEE&feature=player_embedded) on Palestinian Authority TV: “Our enemy Zion is satan with a tail.” Or this one (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq2P4e1acXM): “Christians and Jews are inferior, cowardly and despised.”

- The recent Palestinian Authority TV (http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=897&doc_id=9298) host report that “our prisoners are heroes and not terrorists.” These “heroes” are planners of suicide bombings.

PMW says that exposing the propaganda and separating fact from lies is one way to clear away deliberate obstruction to peace.

Even Hillary Clinton relies on PMW research. Speaking at a 2007 joint press conference with PMW, Clinton said (http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=92&doc_id=101):
“I have been speaking out against the incitement of hate and violence in Palestinian textbooks for years. In 2000 I joined Nobel peace prize winner Elie Wiesel in New York to denounce the lessons of hatred and violence that are part of the curricula in Palestinian schools…..

This propaganda is dangerous. You know, words really matter. Some people sort of downplay the importance of words. But words really matter. Because in idealizing for children a world without Israel, children are taught never to accept the reality of the State of Israel, never to strive for a better future that would hold out the promise of peace and security to them, and is basically a message of pessimism and fatalism that undermines the possibility for these children living lives of fulfillment and productivity.

This has dire consequences for prospects of peace for generations to come
While the photograph above has the PMW and MEMRI websites listed, it is not clear what organization actually published this particular pamphlet. What is clear however, is that the content of the pamphlet has been documented by both PMW and MEMRI and is accurate. It is information that should be of concern to everyone.




If the Tennessee Islamists aren’t convinced by the PMW research, they could watch a few of the videos catalogued by MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute. MEMRI follows what is being said in the Middle East by “monitoring, translating, and studying Arab, Iranian and Turkish media, schoolbooks, and religious sermons.” For example:

http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/1637.htm (http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/1637.htm) – TV Host on Hamas TV, Child Saraa Barhoum, Sings: “We Liberated Gaza by Force” Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas/Gaza) – December 20, 2007
http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/2599.htm (http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/2599.htm) – TV Cartoon Depicts Koran-Based Story of Jews Being Transformed into Apes Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas/Gaza) – August 25, 2010

And here is the January 2014 New York Times article (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/01/06/world/middleeast/07israel-doc.html?_r=0) documenting the negative statements about Israel and Jews in official Palestinian Authority media and textbooks. Research included in the report:
Adolf Hitler is quoted on the websites of Palestinian Authority schools. A young girl appears on Palestinian television, describing Jews as “barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs” and the “murderers of Muhammad,” the Islamic prophet. Maps on the Facebook page of the Palestinian presidential guards do not show Israel. President Mahmoud Abbas himself embraced as “heroes” released Palestinian prisoners who killed Israelis.”
Textbook Used in Tennessee Islamic School Teaches Lies about Jews and Christians
Watch Knoxville Anoor Academy’s 2013 promo video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjSDq4-WLX4) carefully and at minute 1:04 you see a row of textbooks which are Yahiya Emerick’s What Islam Is All About. This text is being used in Islamic private and weekend schools around the U.S., including in Tennessee. According to Emerick, this book was written in standard English to teach Muslim children living in the U.S. about Islam. The following are only a few examples of what the children learn from the Knoxville academy textbook about their Jewish and Christian neighbors:
p. 187 – I. Who Follows Ibrahim’s Example?

“So, although the Christians and Jews may make a big noise about following Prophet Ibrahim, in fact, neither of them do. Prophet Ibrahim fulfilled Allah’s commands, the Jews don’t even follow half of what their corrupted books say. The Christians don’t follow anything except what their philosophers and priests make up from time to time.”

p. 188 – “Prophet Ibrahim called all people to Allah’s way of life. The ‘Jews’ don’t call anybody to anything. They subscribe to a belief in racial superiority calling themselves the ‘chosen’ ones and excluding non-Jews as much as possible. Their religion even teaches them to call down curses upon the worship places of non-Jews whenever they pass by them! They arrogantly refer to anyone who is not Jewish as ‘Gentiles,’ equating them with sin.”

“Prophet Ibrahim told people to do good and he forbade the wrong. Many ‘religious’ and ‘non-religious’ Jews and Christians lead such decadent and immoral lives that lying, alcohol, nudity, pronography, racism, foul language, pre-marital sex, homosexuality and everything else are accepted in their society, churches and synagogues. Just turn on the television in any Jewish or Christian community and see what’s ‘normal.’”
Complaining Islamist Is Also a Vocal BDS Collaborator
After learning about the pamphlet, local agitator, Drost Kokoye, contacted apologist reporter Sky Arnold who wrote about the story (http://www.fox17.com/news/features/top-stories/stories/rutherford-co-students-upset-over-antimuslim-pamphletssky-arnold-19459.shtml). Arnold reported that after students and parents complained about the pamphlet, the Nashville Jewish Federation issued an apology for offending Muslim sensitivities.

But Tennessee Islamist Drost Kokoye’s only interest is in censorship and incitement. As she said, the offered apology isn’t adequate. Of course not, because her real agenda is more in line with her Quaranic doctrine. She is a vigorous advocate of BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) against the State of Israel and agitation against Jews.

http://cdn.frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/p2-346x350.jpg (http://cdn.frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/p2.jpg)

Kokoye, who previously was a local organizer for the TN Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC), now works with Muslim youth and is a board member of the Muslim Youth Network of TN (MYNT) and the TN American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC). She collaborates closely with her friend, Remziya Suleyman, Dir. of the Islamist American Center for Outreach (ACO) and conveniently takes the role of “bad cop” for Suleyman, the Muslim voice of Tennessee, on sensitive interfaith issues like BDS.

Kokoye takes her inspiration from Islamic extremists like Siraj Wahhaj, Zaid Shakir, Muslim Brotherhood leader Jamal Badawi, and more recently, her twitter buddy BDS leader, Ali Abunimah. She was very young when she and her family came to the U.S. as refugees from Iraq, and she seems to regret this move because she routinely expresses her disdain for Americans, calling them “stupid,” especially those she labels as “white people.”

Why Doesn’t the Jewish Federation Stand Up to Jew Haters?
Should the Jewish Federation’s director Mark Freedman have done the Obama-Cairo bow and scrape? Doesn’t Freedman understand yet that pro-BDS Jew and Israel haters like Drost Kokoye aren’t interested in apologies or appeasement of any degree? Doesn’t he understand that what she really seeks is the Islamist brass ring of full-blown dhimmitude for Jews? What will he say when CAIR insists that the Federation staff needs CAIR’s special sensitivity training?

Maybe Freedman should read what is posted on the national Jewish Federation website and the local Nashville Federation website. Myth and Fact #248 (http://www.jewishfederations.org/page.aspx?id=2627) titled “People of the Book, Jews and Christians are protected under Islamic law” explains the dhimmi relationship. This entry ends on a statement of clarity that Freedman would do well to review: “The attitude of the Muslims toward the Christians and the Jews is that of a master towards slaves, whom he treats with a certain lordly tolerance so long as they keep their place. Any sign of pretension to equality is promptly repressed.”

Myth and Fact #219 (http://www.jewishfederations.org/page.aspx?id=77701) (#9 (http://www.jewishnashville.org/page.aspx?id=73443) on the Nashville Federation website), is titled “Muslim schools in the United States teach tolerance of Judaism and other faiths, and promote coexistence with Israel.” Turns out this is the “myth.” This entry explains that Muslim schools in the United States, similar to schools in Arab and Islamic countries are likewise “indoctrinat[ing] students with hatred of Jews and Israel.”

With the recent start of the virulently anti-Israel, Jew-hating Students for Justice in Palestine student organization at UT-Knoxville, school districts in Tennessee using textbooks with overly pro-Palestinian terrorist whitewashing, CAIR anti-Semites training Muslim students, and now anti-Israel agitators like Drost Kokoye pushing BDS, it may be time for the Nashville Jewish community to wake up to the dangers confronting them and seek out strong and insightful leaders.

Nashville is not the only target for these Islamist agitators. The Nashville Jewish community is like all the rest in the U.S. This appeasement is a systemic problem and needs to be addressed.

According to Winston Churchill, “an appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”

New York City: Pro-Muslim Brotherhood rally blasts Saudis as “dirtier than Jews” (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/new-york-city-pro-muslim-brotherhood-rally-blasts-saudis-as-dirtier-than-jews)

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/DirtierThanJews.jpg

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/new-york-city-pro-muslim-brotherhood-rally-blasts-saudis-as-dirtier-than-jews


For Islamic supremacists, there is no greater insult, since the Qur’an designates the Jews as “the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers” (5:82) and describes them as accursed, scheming against Allah and the Muslims, and never to be trusted or befriended (cf. Qur’an 5:51). Thus the hatred that these Muslim Brotherhood rallygoers express so offhandedly is no surprise at all. What is surprising is the bland acceptance of this hatred on the part of the American Left, even as it styles itself the moral superior of its foes, and claims to represent true compassion and charity.

“IPT Video Report: NYC Pro-Morsi Rally Blasts Saudis as ‘Dirtier Than Jews,’” from IPT News (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4291/ipt-video-report-nyc-pro-morsi-rally-blasts#av637), February 13:
Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights (EADHR) has organized rallies throughout the country since last summer, demanding Muslim Brotherhood politician Mohamed Morsi be reinstated as Egypt’s president. Those rallies normally showed a degree of discipline, with chants calling for democracy and expressing love of Morsi himself, with the Muslim Brotherhood going unmentioned.

A Feb. 8 rally outside the Saudi Arabian consulate in New York City didn’t focus on the Islamist group, either. But chants and speeches in Arabic blamed the Saudis for Egypt’s political situation, with some calling on God to destroy the Saudi regime, and allegations they are trying to “sell Egypt to the Jews.”

The Ayatollahs Back Assad and Al-Qaeda
The Islamic Republic’s shrewd gambit in supporting two opposing groups.
by Majid Rafizadeh (http://www.frontpagemag.com/author/majid-rafizadeh/)


http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/majid-rafizadeh/the-ayatollahs-back-assad-and-al-qaeda/


According to several national and international news outlets, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the top Al Qaeda propagandist and Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, will be going on trial in 10 days in federal court in Lower Manhattan.

Abu Ghaith, who used to be Al-Qaeda’s official spokesman and is married to bin Laden’s daughter Fatima, is facing charges including providing material assistance to terrorists groups and conspiracy to kill Americans, among others.

An unrecognized fact is that Abu Ghaith used to live in Iran and was allowed to leave the country freely. According to the Treasury Department, U.S. documents (http://www.treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages/hp1360.aspx)and officials, other members of Osama bin Laden’s family and inner circle besides Abu Ghaith lived in Iran as well.

Some prominent figures of this group are Saif al-Adel, the military commander of Al-Qaeda and a former Egyptian Special Forces officer, as well as Saad bin Laden, one of Osama Bin Laden’s older sons, who has played a crucial role in the leadership of Al-Qaeda.

More recently, in a report (http://www.treasury.gov/press-center/press-releases/Pages/jl2287.aspx) released this week, the US Treasury Department has charged Iran with assisting Al-Qaeda operatives based in the Islamic Republic. The charges have also been brought because Tehran has allowed senior Al-Qaeda members to conduct operations from various regions in Iran, according to the report.

The allegations also strongly indicated that some political figures in the Iranian government and its elite Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) have been covertly and tacitly backing Al-Qaeda and other opposition groups in Syria’s civil war.

The Treasury Department, which is introducing new sanctions targeting Iranian terror links, reported that there was “a key Iran-based al-Qa’ida facilitator who supports al-Qa’ida’s vital facilitation network in Iran [and] operates there with the knowledge of Iranian authorities.” The report also adds, “the network also uses Iran as a transit point for moving funding and foreign fighters through Turkey to support al-Qa’ida-affiliated elements in Syria, including the al-Nusrah Front.”

Olimzhon Adkhamovich Sadikov— also known as Jafar al-Uzbeki and Jafar Muidinov—is characterized by the Treasury Department as an Iran-based Islamic Jihad Union facilitator. This facilitator “operates there with the knowledge of Iranian authorities” and provides funding and logistical support to Al-Qaeda’s Iran-based network.

But it seems that some politicians, scholars and policy analysts are perplexed at how it might be possible for the Islamic Republic of Iran to be supporting Al-Qaeda. Particularly when it comes to Syria, logically, Iran cannot side with Al-Qaeda because Al-Qaeda-linked groups (including Islamic State of Iran and Lebanon and Jubhat Al-Nusra) are attempting to overthrow Assad’s regime, Iran’s staunchest geopolitical, geoeconomic and strategic ally. Even the Treasury Department’s report could not explain why Iran and Al-Qaeda, two seemingly odd bedfellows, would be working together

The main reason that these politicians, scholars, and policy analysts cannot easily see the link is that they view Iran’s politics and the Ayatollah’s policies through a simplified and binary prism. Their main argument comes down to the fact that Al-Qaeda, a Sunni fundamentalist and extremist group, is against the Shiite and Alawite governments of Iran and Syria.

This very simplistic analysis does not highlight the complexity and nuances of the relationships between Iran, Syria, Al-Qaeda and Middle Eastern politics. The link between Iran and Al-Qaeda, in fact, becomes rational when one looks at the objectives of the Aytaollah, Assad’s regime, and Iran’s foreign policy. Both Iran and Syria started this political game with the United States when the uprising started in Syria. They argued that the Syrian government was attacked by Al-Qaeda.

Several reports indicated that Assad, in fact, released many Al-Qaeda members from prison, with Iran assisting their network, in order to buttress the argument that the Assad regime was being attacked by Al-Qaeda. Reportedly, the Al-Qaeda-linked groups in Syria, Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS have even been selling oil to the Assad regime in exchange for money and recruits with the assistance of Tehran.

In addition, the Islamic Republic can use Al-Qaeda’s Iran-based network to thwart US foreign policy objectives in the region and tip the regional balance of power in favor of Iran and against other regional powers such as Israel.

Iran is also looking for alternatives in case Assad’s apparatuses collapse in Syria. In other words, the Islamic Republic will support its ally as long as Assad can retain his power. If Assad falls, the Islamic Republic will take sides with the winning coalition. Currently, the most powerful groups in Syria are the Al-Qaeda-linked groups. The Islamic Republic will attempt to utilize any powerful extremist groups in order to accomplish its foreign policy goals and ideological and hegemonic objectives.

The perplexing fact is that, if US documents, officials and the Treasury Department have released a report indicating that Iran has been supporting Al-Qaeda and Al-Qaeda’s Iran-based network, how the United States is still releasing billions of dollars to the Islamic Republic, easing sanctions, and signing conciliatory nuclear deals through diplomatic ways. This seems to be the question that policy analysts, politicians and scholars should pay attention to, rather than debating how Iran can support two opposing groups.

CAIR Lies in Smear Campaign Against Zuhdi Jasser
A real Muslim reformer vs. terrorist interference runners.
by Robert Spencer (http://www.frontpagemag.com/author/robert-spencer/)


http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/robert-spencer/cair-lies-in-smear-campaign-against-zuhdi-jasser/


I know, I know: reporting that the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is lying is like reporting that humans breathe oxygen. Still, this is a particularly egregious example, and it is important to set the record straight. Hamas-linked CAIR is now defaming Zuhdi Jasser, the nation’s premier (and virtually only) anti-jihad Muslim spokesman. I have had some differences with Jasser (you can see our 2011 debate here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihios1W7h0E)) about the nature of Islamic teaching and the necessity of reform in Islam, but there is no doubt that he is a strong voice against Hamas-linked CAIR and other malignant Islamic supremacist forces.

It is also highly likely that Hamas-linked CAIR is lying about Jasser’s supposed attempt to deny religious rights to Muslim military personnel, since Jasser is committed to constitutional freedoms. There is no doubt, in any case, that they’re lying about me. In the first place, I’ve never heard of the Abstraction Fund, which they say funds Jihad Watch. I am not familiar with all those who fund the David Horowitz Freedom Center, with which Jihad Watch is affiliated, and it is possible that Abstraction funds the Center, but they do not fund Jihad Watch directly. (They’re certainly welcome to do so!)

More importantly, Hamas-linked CAIR claims that the Roman Catholic diocese of Sacramento called me a “key leader in the anti-Islam hate movement in the United States.” This is almost certainly a lie, for several reasons. One is that in its initial chest-thumping about the Sacramento bishop caving in to their smear campaign last June, CAIR never mentioned this — and Hamas-linked CAIR has never been one to shy away from using a weapon that their marks hand them. What’s more, I spoke at the event in question, and the diocese of Sacramento had an information booth there — a strange thing for the diocese to have done if they really wanted to shun a leader of a supposed “hate movement.” The official statement that the diocese sent to Kolbe Academy said only this: “The Bishop didn’t think that it was in the best interest of Kolbe Academy to have a controversial speaker at a conference on education.”

See? This is how Hamas-linked CAIR operates: they (and their allies, such as Reza Aslan’s Aslan Media) mount a campaign of defamation against a counter-jihad speaker (and it isn’t just me — they do it to everyone who stands up against jihad terror). A busy and ill-informed official, such as the Bishop of Sacramento, sees this campaign and caves in immediately, not because he agrees with Hamas-linked CAIR’s defamation, but simply because he doesn’t want any “controversy.”

Groups like CAIR and Aslan Media know that it usually suffices just to stir up a spurious “controversy” over a counter-jihad speaker to get that speaker canceled, because big organizations (like the diocese of Sacramento) don’t want to be the focus of endless hysterical “news” stories and unwelcome media attention. Then when they cave, the anti-free speech fascists trumpet this as more evidence of the wickedness of the counter-jihad speaker, even though no judgment was actually made about the correctness of their charges at all: “See? He’s so hateful that the diocese of Sacramento wanted him dropped from a conference” — when actually the only thing that happened was that the jihad enabler kicked up a fuss where people didn’t want any fuss.

It’s an insidious tactic. Hamas-linked CAIR keeps using it because it works, and because the organizations that should be on to this as a tactic and ready to stand up for freedom and human rights are still unaware of it, and ready to cave at the first sign of “controversy.”

By the way, a couple of things the CAIR press release, which has been widely reported upon and picked up by Al Jazeera and other pro-jihad outfits, didn’t mention in connection with the diocese of Sacramento: CAIR and Aslan Media tried the same smear campaign when I debated a couple of Muslim spokesmen in Michigan a few months ago, at another Catholic conference. Not only did Earl Boyea, Bishop of Lansing, not cave, but he came to celebrate Mass at the event. Nor did CAIR bother to quote quote the National Catholic Register (http://www.ncregister.com/site/article/the-christian-muslim-gulf/) calling me “perhaps the foremost Catholic expert on Islam in our country,” or Catholic Insight calling me “one of the most insightful and learned scholars of Islam.” Truth doesn’t serve their agenda, doncha know. For CAIR, it never has.

Florida Muslim charged with recruiting and training for violent jihad offered plea deal (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/florida-muslim-charged-with-recruiting-and-training-for-violent-jihad-offered-plea-deal)

I wasn’t able to find a single news source that gave Shelton Thomas Bell’s Muslim name. Why do they disrespect him in this way? If he were a convert to Islam who was rising in the business or sports world, or was some rich philanthropist, the media wouldn’t dare call him by the name he used when he was in the darkness of jahiliyya. But since he wanted to commit jihad mass murder, he is always and only…Shelton Thomas Bell.

Anyway, under whose auspices did “Bell” convert to Islam? What mosque did he go to? Who taught him that jihad involved warfare against unbelievers, and this understanding of Islam that Muslim groups in the U.S. ostensibly reject? Does anyone know? Does anyone care?

“Plea deal offered for Jax man charged with supporting terrorists,” by Stephanie Brown for WKOV.com (http://www.wokv.com/news/news/local/plea-deal-offered-jax-man-charged-supporting-terro/ndSdb/), February 18:
Jacksonville, FL — A plea deal is officially on the table for the Jacksonville man charged with supporting terrorism overseas.

During a status hearing for Shelton Bell today, his public defender Lisa Call asked the Magistrate for a 30 day continuance. She told him she had received a plea offer from the US Attorney’s Office last week but had not yet had the time to review it with Bell. She told the court she believes the case will “resolve” before trial.

The Magistrate set a plea deadline for March 19th. If the case does move forward to trial, it is now scheduled for April 7th.

Bell was indicted at 19-years-old for “Conspiracy to Provide Material Support to Terrorists” and “Attempt to Provide Material Support to Terrorists”. The indictment against Bell alleges that he recruited and trained locally for what he calls a violent “jihad” overseas. He also allegedly traveled abroad with the intent of supporting a terrorist organization.

The council members appear to have received this man’s appeals with some impatience. However, make no mistake: there will be many more incidents like this, with calls for the implementation of Sharia morals police and Sharia restrictions on the freedom of speech growing louder and more insistent. And then city councils and other governing bodies will be forced either to articulate and implement a defense of Western principles of free expression, or capitulate. Right now the latter looks much more likely.

“Super Bowl coach honored at city council meeting, first garage ordinance reading approved,” by Samer Hijazi for Arab American News (http://www.arabamericannews.com/news/news/id_8266/Super-Bowl-coach-honored-at-city-council-meeting,-first-garage-ordinance-reading-approved.html), February 14 (thanks to Creeping Sharia (http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/dearbornistan-local-muslim-calls-for-sharia-patrols-at-city-council-meeting/)):
DEARBORN — This week’s city council meeting started out on a positive note as the city honored former Seattle Seahawks assistant coach and Dearborn native Robert Saleh for his recent Super Bowl victory. However, the atmosphere at City Hall took a bizarre turn after a local Arab American confronted the council on what he said were “troubling issues in the city.”…

The highlight of the evening came at the very end during the public comment section, when a local Arab American took the podium to address concerns he had with the city. The man, who identified himself as Hassan, stated that he lived in Westland but had concerns he wanted to address as an individual who works in the city. He refused to publicly give his address fearing for the safety of his family.

After referencing Prophet Muhammad and loudly chanting Islamic prayers, Hassan said that the city needed to monitor neighborhood parks around the clock because people have been using them to conduct sexual activities. Council President Susan Dabaja, however, told him that the city doesn’t have the resources or money for increased security at parks and asked him to move on to his next point.

Hassan also stated that there were magazines and newspapers at the public libraries and civic center that can “cause colossal damage to a child’s health,” asking the city to review and monitor literature before they are distributed. Dabaja cited that freedom of speech laws exist and that parents, not the city, should monitor what their children read.

“These issues are not relevant to this body,” Councilman Thomas Tafelski added, looking frustrated.

Hassan was told he needed to speed up his message to the council because, according to council rules, an individual is limited to three minutes of speaking time during the public comments portion of the meeting. Hassan proceeded to address concerns he has regarding discrimination against Arabs in the city. He cited his current place of employment as an example.

“There is no political correctness contained and there is so much harassment towards Muslims and Arabs,” Hassan said.
Dabaja, however, was quick to tell him that his points were out of line and not issues that the council usually tackles.

“If you have concerns about your supervisor, then go ahead and seek the advice of legal counsel. This is not something that we as a body can address,” Dabaja stated before telling the individual that his time on the floor had expired….

Texas police double as Mahmoudberg’s militia

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/texas-police-double-as-mahmoudbergs-militia


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/MOA-300x224.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/MOA.jpg)

U.S. law enforcement agencies are avid to hire Muslims, so as to stave off charges of “Islamophobia.” And in many cases, Muslims are eager to be hired, because they have ties to groups that would benefit enormously from having a friend in law enforcement. And so we see in this story that the Islamic jihadists of the Mahmoudberg compound in rural Texas had not one, but two (at least) friends on local police forces. Their foresight in placing them there paid off.

“Texas police double as Mahmoudberg’s militia,” by Pamela Geller in WND (http://www.wnd.com/2014/02/texas-police-double-as-mahmoudbergs-militia/), February 23:
The jihad terror-trainings compounds in the U.S., a news story I first broke back in 2007, (http://pamelageller.com/2014/02/fbi-docs-jihad-terror-training-compound-discovered-rural-texas.html/amaat%20ul-Fuqra,%20a%20terrorist%20organization%20with%20hea dquarters%20in%20Pakistan,%20has%20established%20o ver%2045%20compounds%20in%20rural%20areas%20throug hout%20America.%20The%20compounds%20are%20providin g%20paramilitary%20training%20to%20new%20recruits% 20for%20the%20great%20jihad%20against%20the%20USA% 20under%20the%20not-so-watchful%20eye%20of%20federal%20law%20enforcement% 20officials.%20%20Most%20of%20the%20recruits%20are %20African%20Americans%20who%20converted%20to%20Is lam%20while%20doing%20hard%20time%20in%20federal%2 0prison.%20-%20See%20more%20at:%20http:/pamelageller.com/2007/08/paul-williams-i.html/#sthash.mT5d3xW7.dpuf) are growing. And now I have obtained exclusive information showing that one of them has placed members on local police forces, ensuring that nothing is done to stop or even monitor their activities.

PJ Media reported (http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/02/18/fbi-docs-alleged-terrorist-training-compound-discovered-in-rural-texas/), “Federal Bureau of Investigations documents detailing a 22-site network of terrorist training villages sprawled across the United States. According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA [Muslims of the Americas]/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.”

The Texas compound is called “Mahmoudberg,” located in south Texas’ Brazoria County on County Road 3 near the town of Sweeny, which has a population of about 4,000. Jamaat ul-Fuqra was the jihad terrorist organization that murdered journalist Daniel Pearl – he had gone to try to interview its leader. According to an informed source, one of Pearl’s murderers now lives at Mahmoudberg.

I have also discovered that another member of the MOA compound in Sweeny is a police officer for the nearby city of Freeport; his name is Hussein Jones. Informed and well-placed sources have informed me that a few years ago, there was a shooting on the compound. County officers were called, as well as EMS. However, when they arrived, they faced hostile members of the compound who would not allow them inside.

A police officer who was at the scene said that as this confrontation was going on, a constable of the neighboring Fort Bend County came speeding up in his car and began angrily rebuking the police officers who were there. He also tried to prevent the officers and EMS technicians and paramedics from gaining access to the compound. This constable also turned out to be a member of the MOA compound. However, as a result of his behavior during this incident, he was fired from his position as constable, and county officials were ultimately able to get inside the compound, although Brazoria County police are still not allowed in.

My sources tell me also that the compound is made up of mobile buildings that the group regularly rearranges, always positioning them in a way so that if law enforcement had to storm the compound, they would be sitting ducks with a sure tactical disadvantage.

Police officials say there are no laws to stop this group from what they are doing, and they cannot do anything until they break some kind of law.

It is astonishing to me that these jihadists can so easily place themselves in positions of power right under our noses. How could law enforcement agencies in two different Texas counties have hired these two members of the MOA, even after vetting them – or did they vet them? Were they afraid of charges of “Islamophobia”? How can Hussein Jones still be employed by the Freeport Police Department?

After all, it isn’t news that these compounds exist. I ran a piece by Paul Williams at my website Atlas Shrugs on Aug. 6, 2007 (http://pamelageller.com/2007/08/paul-williams-i.html/), reporting that “Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a terrorist organization with headquarters in Pakistan, has established over 45 compounds in rural areas throughout America. The compounds are providing paramilitary training to new recruits for the great jihad against the USA under the not-so-watchful eye of federal law enforcement officials. Most of the recruits are African-Americans who converted to Islam while doing hard time in federal prison.”

These are essentially America’s no-go Shariah zones, where even police maintain a hands-off policy. Mahmoudberg’s sister terror compound in New York, Islamberg (http://pamelageller.com/2007/08/paul-williams-i.html/), contains a campus of “The International Quranic Open University,” at which students get training from manuals written by Jamaat ul-Fuqra leader Mubarak al-Gilani, who teaches them that the Muslim’s “foremost duty” is to “wage jihad” against the “enemies” of Islam. Williams reported that “the students are also treated to Gilani’s poetic tirades against Western civilization and his jihad jingles, such as this marching song (http://pamelageller.com/2007/08/paul-williams-i.html/#sthash.mT5d3xW7.dpuf):
“Come join my troops and army,”
Says our Sheikh Gilani.
“Prepare to sacrifice your head.
“A true believer is never dead.
“Say ‘Victory is in the air,’
“The kafir’s blood will not be spared.”
Gilani boosts: “We give [students] specialized training in guerilla warfare. We are at present establishing training camps. You can easily reach us at Open Quranic offices in upstate New York or in Canada or in South Carolina or in Pakistan.”

And Sweeny, Texas. Where are the law enforcement officials who aren’t members of this compound? Too busy hunting for “right-wing extremists”?

SHOCKING ADMISSION:
Muslim writer blames Muslims for creating ‘Islamophobia’

http://www.barenakedislam.com/2014/02/25/shocking-admission-muslim-writer-blames-muslims-for-creating-islamophobia/


What do I mean by “self-created fear of Islamophobia”? Do I dare to say that Islamophobia actually doesn’t exist at all? Yep, it didn’t exist but some of our Islamic centers created the term and spread it around through their actions.

http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Legislating-Fear-2013-Cover-Pic.jpg
http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/headshot.jpgBY: Tahir Aslam Gora, a Pakistani writer, novelist, poet, journalist, editor, translator and publisher.

HuffingtonPost-CA (http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/tahir-gora/muslim-islamophobia_b_2416777.html) What were those actions? By not denouncing armed Jihad against those Western societies where they are abode now, by not calling a spade a spade such as honour killings, Taliban’s attack on Malala Yousafzai, AlQaeda’s sectarian war against minorities in the Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan and Afghanistan, etc,.

However, the fact that over 90 per cent of Muslims are not associated with any Islamic organisation or mosque and visit it no more than once or twice a year. That alone should make America skeptical of Islamist groups like CAIR, ISNA, ICNA and MSA.

Ihsan Bagby, a professor and an imam at Shaw University in Raleigh, N.C. wrote after 9/11, “There are a large number of Muslims that hold on to their identity as Muslims, but choose not to practice, not to act out their beliefs in everyday life…a large portion of the American Muslim community are in this group.”

The report by prof Bagby (http://www.nytimes.com/2001/12/23/national/23MUSL.html), “The Mosque in America: A National Portrait,” revealed that of the six (actually between 2 – 3) million Muslims in the United States, only about 350,000 on average attend the Friday midday prayers.

Thus the incessant drumbeat by Islamists and Muslim Brotherhood legacy groups in the U.S. about rising Islamophobia is reflecting the mindset of the mulla and his scant followers in America, not me or the 90 per cent who have little interest in praying behind misogynist and homophobic clerics.

Even if it were true that Islamophobia exists, the next question would be: What should we do now?

My answer is that all Islamic organizations should make a resolution for 2013 that they would preach to fellow Muslims to live a normal life instead of preaching the addiction of victimhood.

You may ask, what do you mean, a normal life here?

A normal life for a Muslim should be a life without obsessions. Free of all obsessions such as identity crises, niqab, hijab, jihad, alienation and gender segregation and contempt for joy.

As Muslims we should identify ourselves with the culture and land we associate with. Islam also teaches this but unfortunately Islam’s true liberal teachings are not being told to us by our traditional Islamic organizations in the West that are in the hands of mainly Islamists.

Similarly Niqab, armed Jihad, alienation and segregation are not endorsed by original version and modern interpretations of Islam but sharia-bound Islamists use them in order to further their agenda.

A critical question arises here that since a majority of Muslims in the West live a normal life then why are we concerned about our abnormal image in the West?

Unfortunately, that majority is not visible in the media. Nor that majority is recognized by Western politicians and policymakers. Same is the case here in Canada and the USA.

So the responsibility lies to the power cores of the Western world as well for not recognizing the majority of the regular Muslims that are essential fabric of the societies. Rather, our media would like to portray the picture of a Hijabi or Niqabi clad or a long kurta wearing a beard man in order to show a Muslim representation. Likewise, our politicians hug and have photo sessions with such typical faces to tell us how much they love diversity.

A recent example is Canada’s Liberal Party Leadership Candidate Justin Trudeau’s participation and speech in Revival the Islamic Spirit Conference in Toronto.

It was suggested by liberal Muslims that he should not endorse the medieval agenda of revival the Islam Spirit conference for the fact that that mob never respects gay rights, equality and true freedom of men and women and true essence of freedom of expression, etc.

But Justin Trudeau chose to go there (http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/justin-trudeau/justin-trudeau-islamic-spirit-conference-speech_b_2354243.html) and opened his speech with the statement, “I am here today because I believe in freedom of expression.”

That was a nice statement without any context but the same crowd cheered that never acknowledges Salman Rushdies’ rights of free expression. Shallow Politicians like Justin Trudeau would never realize the depth of these core issues.

So it’s a responsibility of secular liberal Muslims in Canada and the US to come forward in 2013 and form new voices against ongoing Islamism that wants to take away the normal way of life from majority Muslims.

Remember, no more than 10 per cent of Muslims fit the Muslim stereotype of the bearded man dressed in medieval attire and women in hijabs with blue mascara and deep red lipstick wearing stilettos. The rest of us are just like you. We go to the ball game, eat our hot dogs warm and drink our beers cold.

—————————————————————————————————————
RELATED STORY from another Muslim: Who is to blame for ‘Islamophobia’ in the UK? (http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4186/islamophobia-uk)
If you look at the London Tube Bombing of 7/7; the Madrid Train Bombing; two attacks on the World Trade Center; the murders of Lee Rigby, Theo Van Gogh, Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg, Ilan Halimi, and countless other attack and threats, how can we honestly expect people not to be “Islamophobic”? It would appear we have no one to blame but ourselves.

‘Why Should Palestinians Believe in the Holocaust?’
Palestinian-Canadian leader who praised terror now asks what is wrong with Holocaust denial.
By Dalit Halevy, Maayana Miskin

A well-known Palestinian-Canadian activist who has previously been in hot water over his support for terrorism and use of anti-Semitic propaganda is in the news again, this time for defending Holocaust denial.

According to Shalom Toronto, Dr. Nazih Khatatba, editor of the Toronto Arabic weekly paper Meshwar, argued in a recent editorial that criticism of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas for Holocaust denial (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/143752) is out of place.

“Why should any Palestinian have to declare belief in the Jewish Holocaust, and why should we accept it as truth?” Khatatba reportedly asked.

He slammed Abbas for allegedly giving in to Israeli demands. “Mr. President, I condemn the weakness in your words. We demand that you stop doing damage to our honor, and the honor of our martyrs and our prisoners,” he wrote.

Khatatba criticized Abbas for giving up “basic rights” regarding issues such as the “right of return” – the Arab demand that Israel allow millions of descendants of Arabs who fled Israel during the War of Independence to “return” to present-day Israel, effectively making it an Arab country.

He also slammed Abbas for reportedly being willing to give up his demand to certain Israeli cities in Judea and Samaria.

Meshwar and Khatatba have previously come under criticism over anti-Semitic cartoons, including a cartoon published in November 2012 which depicted Israelis eating Palestinian children and drinking their blood. Meshwar has also praised terrorists and terrorist organizations.

Khatatba refused to apologize for running the November 2012 cartoon.

In addition to serving as editor of Meshwar, Khatatba is on the board of directors of Palestine House, a Canadian non-profit that works with the Palestinian Arab population in Toronto. The organization was at the center of political controversy two years ago, when it was stripped of state funding due to a “pattern of support for extremism,” including its celebration at the release of terrorists and its praise of terrorist leaders.

Young American & British Muslims

By Paul Austin Murphy (http://www.americanthinker.com/paul_austin_murphy)

http://www.americanthinker.com/2014/02/young_american__british_muslims.html



You might have noted that many non-Muslim commentators suggest (or hint) that it's a good thing that Muslims in the U.S. and UK are less 'ethnic' than they used to be. Good for whom, exactly? Well, it could actually a bad thing for non-Muslims because it means that Muslims are more uniform and powerful and therefore more politically dangerous. Indeed this is something that many younger Muslims, especially Islamists, stress.

The ummah (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ummah) is a dangerous thing; as Muslims themselves often say (though not in those precise words). When you have Pakistani mosques and Bangladeshi mosques, or even Deobandi and Barelvi mosques, that is a good thing because there is disunity among Muslims. And that's precisely why Islamists, and other Muslims, stress the ummah. A larger and more uniform ummah will give Islamists more power. That is why they detest 'Muslim nationalism' and the 'un-Islamic' stress on Muslim ethnicity. (Though being politicians Islamists, like communists historically, also sometimes use nationalism and ethnicity when they need to.)

Thus Islamists, and many young American and British Muslims, are like International Socialists ('progressives'/ socialists) in that they downplay nationalism/ patriotism and the nation state itself. Islamists are hoping that an increase in the power of the ummah will increase the power of Islamism.

So non-Muslims shouldn't be at all impressed when Islamists and educated Western Muslims criticise what they, for example, say 'Bengali Islam' and call it 'superstitious'. It is of course younger Muslims who are less ethnic but more ummah-inspired. It is younger Muslims who are more likely to be Islamists than older ones. How, exactly, is that supposed to be a good thing for non-Muslims?

It is younger Muslims who are more likely to wear the niqab (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=niqab&newwindow=1&client=firefox-a&hs=nmu&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=sb&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=ECQLU7a1G8WV7Ab0i4GABQ&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1525&bih=702&dpr=0.9) and burkha (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=burka&newwindow=1&client=firefox-a&hs=6mu&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=sb&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=IyQLU8n0OLKS7AboqoGYDw&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1525&bih=702&dpr=0.9) than older ones. In fact, in the UK hardly any older Bangladeshi or Pakistani Muslims, for example, wear the niqab and burkha, though they do wear the hijab (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=hijab&newwindow=1&client=firefox-a&hs=Tnu&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&channel=sb&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=OiQLU5SUPOSS7Ab_uYDgAQ&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAQ&biw=1525&bih=702&dpr=0.9). The niqab and burkha are effectively the uniforms of Islamism, not Islam. Far from burkhas and niqabs being "traditional Islamic dress (http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/09/niquabs_vs_the_west.html)", they are quite new in origin. In fact, at least in the UK, they only started to be worn on a frequent basis in the late 1990s or after.

To repeat: rather than the younger generation of Muslims being more moderate than the older generations, it would be easy to argue the opposite case. For example, the infamous East London Mosque (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/labour/7333487/Inextricably-linked-to-controversial-mosque-the-secret-world-of-IFE.html), during Ramadan, was attracting between 4,000 and 5,000 people every day in 2009, many of them young. In other words, Islamist groups (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-18355721)are doing their best to increase 'Islamic identity' amongst the young in Tower Hamlets (a district of London) and elsewhere. As I said, when the ethnic identity of Muslims was primary in the U.S. and UK, the threat of Islamic extremism was much less. Now that 'Islamist universalism' is a major tune for young Muslims, extremism is increasing and, inevitably, so too will violence and the threat of Islamic terrorism.

To put all this in basic terms: if you look around the word, wherever Islamists are strong and have large numbers, there is political violence, intimidation, and threats towards Christians, non-Muslim women, Hindus, Sikhs, and Jews. The recent 'Muslim patrols' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_Patrol_incident)in London have just been the most obvious and media-focused aspect of the Islamization of large parts of the capital city and elsewhere. Other aspects of London's Islamization have been 'white flight' (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/9888310/Lets-talk-about-the-exodus-of-600000-whites-from-London.html), the intimidation of drinkers, night-clubbers, women and so on.

And don't be fooled by the increase of Islamic 'peace' conferences either. Islamic peace is something very specific. It is brought about to the degree in which more people become Muslims and embrace sharia law. In other words, Islamic peace will come about when, for example, the whole of Tower Hamlets (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1386558/Tower-Hamlets-Taliban-Death-threats-women-gays-attacked-streets.html)– and ultimately the entire world – 'submits to Allah'. That is the 'peace' Muslims are referring to.

Take this example: the Baitul Futuh ('House of Victories') Mosque in Morden (London) once acted as the center for what it called the "Loyalty, Freedom and Peace Campaign". Here again they are talking about Islamic loyalty, Islamic freedom and Islamic peace: not freedom and peace as they are usually understood in the non-Muslim West. In other words, a loyalty, freedom, and peace which can only be brought about when an area -- or state, or the entire world -- embraces sharia law. The truth is that Islamic peace is the “peace of the grave”, at least for non-Muslims.

You might have noted that many non-Muslim commentators suggest (or hint) that it's a good thing that Muslims in the U.S. and UK are less 'ethnic' than they used to be. Good for whom, exactly? Well, it could actually a bad thing for non-Muslims because it means that Muslims are more uniform and powerful and therefore more politically dangerous.

Is fear of Islam unfounded?

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/02/is-fear-of-islam-unfounded


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/QuranRifle2-300x202.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/QuranRifle2.jpg)

Reza Varjavand is associate professor of economics and finance at the Graham School of management at Saint Xavier University in Chicago. In this short piece at Iranian.com, he asks a common-sense question that has been obscured by the fog of jihad-enabling propaganda pumped out endlessly by the likes of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Reza Aslan’s Aslan Media. His title, “Is Fear of Islam Unfounded?,” is of course prompted by the use of the term “Islamophobia,” which literally means fear of Islam; however, I think the best response to the atrocities he mentions is not fear, but resoluteness in the defense of freedom and human rights.

“Is Fear of Islam unfounded?,” by Reza Varjavand for Iranian.com (http://iranian.com/posts/view/post/28961), February 26:
Once again, a violent attack by Muslim extremists astounded the world, they murdered a number of innocent students in Nigeria just because they were attending school and learning what their attackers called Western education! Is this the religion whose prophet allegedly said “Seek knowledge from the cradle to the grave”? I think the world have seen enough images of atrocities committed under the name of Islam:

Blown-up buildings, burning cars, beheading, flogging, arresting innocent people for no reason, butchering of a British soldier in a street of London, Boston bombing, Train bombing in Madrid, fatal shooting of 13 people by army major Nidal Hassan, public executions in street, death threat against, or assassination of, writers or those who express their opinions just to name a few.

Sometimes I ask myself is this what Islam is all about?

In light of all of these, we, Muslims, keep telling others how peaceful our religion is which reminds me of that famed Wendy’s “where is the beef” commercial. Aren’t Muslim influential leaders guilty of implicit complacency by remaining silent and not publically condemning such atrocious acts or taking a firm position against them?

We may not be able to change this madness; at least we can say something about it.
Indeed. Stopping the victimhood manipulation and working for serious, genuine reform would be a good place to start.

Rep. Keith Ellison addresses chapter of Hamas-linked CAIR

http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/EllisonCAIR-300x184.png (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/EllisonCAIR.png)

This is not the first time: Hamas-linked CAIR raised large amounts of for Ellison’s first campaign, and he has spoken at numerous CAIR events (http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/07/21/rep-keith-ellison-rewrites-history-on-his-muslim-brotherhood-cair-ties/).

CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/016754.php) — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/014963.php) to (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/016017.php) denounce (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/014790.php) Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror (http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/2003/06/cairs-legal-tribulations.html). CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=53303). Its California chapter distributed the poster above (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/01/cairs-honest-ibe-hooper-admits-dont-talk-to-the-fbi-poster-crossed-a-line-but-those-who-noticed-that.html) telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI. CAIR has opposed every anti-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented.

But all that is apparently fine with Ellison; in fact, to bring it up would be “Islamophobic.” And no one will care about this. But imagine if Ellison were not a Muslim, but a Christian, and had addressed a conference of, say, the American Freedom Defense Initiative. Do you think there would be a furor in the mainstream media, with calls for Ellison’s resignation? So do I. And yet AFDI has no connection to any terror groups. CAIR has plenty. And the world is upside down indeed.

Hamas-linked CAIR fails to strong-arm Florida university into canceling counter-jihad speaker (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/03/hamas-linked-cair-fails-to-strong-arm-florida-university-into-canceling-counter-jihad-speaker)

The inveterate foes of the freedom of speech at the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) mounted their usual smear campaign when they learned that Professor Jonathan Matusitz, who tells the truth about the jihad threat, was going to speaking about jihad terrorism at Embry-Riddle University. A key element of their campaign was my interview of Professor Matusitz, which you can see here (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/01/jonathan-matusitz-and-robert-spencer-on-hamas-linked-cairs-intimidation-and-harassment). To their great credit, the administrators at Embry-Riddle did not give in to this brownshirt thuggery, and the event went on as scheduled. Watch and learn.

CAIR-Chicago: FORWARD - 2014 Film

Conveniently, they don’t mention that the word for Black in Arabic is the same as the word for slave. They also forget to mention that Muslims have been the world’s biggest slavemasters for hundreds of years. And still are, where poor African slaves are working for Muslims in the most horrid, abusive conditions, many of them in oil-rich Gulf states.

In beginning of this video called “Forward, we get to hear rap singing (how appropriate). Then CAIR rolls out its parade of whiners, bemoaning how badly they are treated here. There’s even a dhimmi lawyer to attest to the countless frivolous lawsuits they’ve filed against American businesses and institutions which refuse to be held hostage to never-ending Muslim demands for special accommodations for their ’religion.’

Muslim Brotherhood launches its own U.S. political party

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/muslim-brotherhood-launches-its-own-u-s-political-party (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/muslim-brotherhood-launches-its-own-u-s-political-party)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/uscmo20143-300x197.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/uscmo20143.jpg)

CAIR, MAS and their allied groups are so practiced in deception, and so many American voters are so ignorant and indifferent, that this group could gain real traction. Meanwhile, given that Muslims of various sects vote as blocs in Iraq and elsewhere, it is not hard to envision such a bloc emerging in the U.S., and ultimately transforming American politics.

“Muslim Brotherhood Launches Own U.S. Political Party,” from Investor’s Business Daily (http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/040114-695470-muslim-brotherhood-launches-own-american-political-party.htm), April 1:
Islamofascism: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.

‘Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.

“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”

USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.

This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a “civilization jihad” against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and “destroying (it) from within.”

The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader’s home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11.

Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations — some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO.

Front and center is the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, the catalyst behind this Trojan horse jihadist political party.

CAIR is linked in federal criminal court documents to the terrorist group Hamas, the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. CAIR’s chief Awad, who announced the USCMO at the National Press Club, is so radioactive, the FBI refuses to do outreach with him and his so-called Muslim-rights group until it can “resolve whether there continues to be a connection between its executives and Hamas.”

Equally troubling is the Muslim American Society, another founding member of the USCMO. MAS was formed as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,” a 2007 Justice Department court filing states. A 2011 MAS press release praised Osama bin Laden as “a visionary who believed in an Islamic state in Afghanistan.”

The list of bad actors doesn’t end there. The chairman of America’s new Islamist party is none other than Oussama Jammal, who once headed the notorious Bridgeview Mosque in Chicago.

One of that mosque’s leaders was arrested and jailed for funneling millions to Hamas. And one of its most honored guests was bin Laden’s spiritual mentor, the late Palestinian cleric Abdullah Azzam. Some of Azzam’s relatives are Bridgeview members.

“The walls were covered with Hamas posters and recruiting literature showing masked gunmen brandishing automatic weapons. . . . You could see daggers plunged into Jewish hearts wrapped up in American flags,” said Steve Emerson, describing the mosque in his book “American Jihad.” “They even had a library filled with terrorist videos.”

Brandeis capitulates to Hamas-linked CAIR, rescinds honor to Ayaan Hirsi Ali

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/brandeis-capitulates-to-hamas-linked-cair-rescinds-honor-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/ayaan_hirsi_ali-300x200.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/ayaan_hirsi_ali.jpg)

In the early 1930s, Nazi brownshirts used to go to college campuses and heckle and intimidate anti-Nazi professors. Now the successors and ideological kin of those brownshirts, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations, get support from professors — and they’ve won another victory over the freedom of speech and the resistance to jihad terror.

Why was Hamas-linked CAIR gunning for Hirsi Ali? CAIR in its press release (http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?ca=38145946-fd98-40b5-8e6f-fedef8a27949&c=e8768710-b6b3-11e3-af02-d4ae5284205e&ch=e97113b0-b6b3-11e3-afb7-d4ae5284205e) quoted Hirsi Ali from a 2007 interview (http://reason.com/archives/2007/10/10/the-trouble-is-the-west/print) saying: “I think that we are at war with Islam.”

http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/540864_494971090521421_728603375_n.jpg

Ironically, CAIR spokesmen have said the same thing (http://www.investigativeproject.org/632/cair-portrays-war-on-terrorism-as-malicious-war-on-islam): “The new perception is that the United States has entered a war with Islam itself,” said then-CAIR Board Chairman Parvez Ahmed in July 2007. The only difference is that Hirsi Ali and CAIR are on opposite sides of this war. Is it unacceptable at Brandeis, a contradiction of its core values, to oppose the global jihad? Apparently so.

In the same interview, Hirsi Ali also called for the closing of Islamic schools in the United States. While that is indeed a severe and questionable recommendation, it should be remembered that Ayaan Hirsi Ali attended Islamic schools in her native Somalia. She no doubt also has seen the reports from all over the world showing hatred and violence being taught in all too many Islamic schools. In that same interview she said: “Asking whether radical preachers ought to be allowed to operate is not hostile to the idea of civil liberties; it’s an attempt to save civil liberties. A nation like this one is based on civil liberties, and we shouldn’t allow any serious threat to them. So Muslim schools in the West, some of which are institutions of fascism that teach innocent kids that Jews are pigs and monkeys—I would say in order to preserve civil liberties, don’t allow such schools.”

http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/JLKCsni-e139673694360011.jpg

Is calling for the schools that teach hatred and contempt of an entire group of people against the core values of Brandeis University? Apparently it is.

Hamas-linked CAIR means to shut down any and every foe of jihad terror and Islamic supremacism. And supine, terrified officials at Brandeis and all over rush to do their bidding. No one seems to have the courage to stand up to these Islamic supremacist foes of freedom and truth. Dark days, and it is going to get worse.

Brandeis University President Frederick Lawrence’s email address is lawrence@brandeis.edu. Let him know, politely and courteously, what you think of his capitulation to fascist Islamic supremacists.

“Brandeis University withdraws planned honorary degree for Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali,” from Fox News (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/04/09/brandeis-university-withdraws-planned-honorary-degree-for-islam-critic-ayaan/), April 9:
Brandeis University in Massachusetts announced Tuesday that it had withdrawn the planned awarding of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a staunch critic of Islam and its treatment of women, after protests from students and faculty.

The university said in a statement posted online that the decision had been made after a discussion between Ali and university President Frederick Lawrence.

“She is a compelling public figure and advocate for women’s rights, and we respect and appreciate her work to protect and defend the rights of women and girls throughout the world,” said the university’s statement. “That said, we cannot overlook certain of her past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.”

Ali, a member of the Dutch Parliament from 2003 to 2006, has been quoted as making comments critical of Islam. That includes a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine in which she said of the religion, “Once it’s defeated, it can mutate into something peaceful. It’s very difficult to even talk about peace now. They’re not interested in peace. I think that we are at war with Islam. And there’s no middle ground in wars.”

Ali was raised in a strict Muslim family, but after surviving a civil war, genital mutilation, beatings and an arranged marriage, she renounced the faith in her 30s. She has not commented publicly on the issue of the honorary degree.

In 2007, Ali helped establish the AHA Foundation, which works to protect and defend the rights of women in the West from oppression justified by religion and culture, according to its website. The foundation also strives to protect basic rights and freedoms of women and girls. This includes control of their own bodies, access to an education and the ability to work outside the home and control their own income, the website says.

More than 85 of about 350 faculty members at Brandeis signed a letter asking for Ali to be removed from the list of honorary degree recipients. And an online petition created Monday by students at the school of 5,800 had gathered thousands of signatures from inside and outside the university as of Tuesday afternoon.

“This is a real slap in the face to Muslim students,” said senior Sarah Fahmy, a member of the Muslim Student Association who created the petition said before the university withdrew the honor.

“But it’s not just the Muslim community that is upset but students and faculty of all religious beliefs,” she said. “A university that prides itself on social justice and equality should not hold up someone who is an outright Islamophobic.”

Thomas Doherty, chairman of American studies, refused to sign the faculty letter. He said it would have been great for the university to honor “such a courageous fighter for human freedom and women’s rights, who has put her life at risk for those values.”

Bernard Macy, a 1979 Brandeis graduate, sent an email this week to university President Frederick Lawrence and several members of the faculty saying, “Thank you for recognizing Ayaan Hirsi Ali for defending Muslim women against Islamist honor violence.”

But Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Muslim advocacy group, said, “It is unconscionable that such a prestigious university would honor someone with such openly hateful views.”

The organization sent a letter to university President Frederick Lawrence on Tuesday requesting that it drop plans to honor Ali.

“This makes Muslim students feel very uneasy,” Joseph Lumbard, chairman of Islamic and Middle Eastern studies, said in an interview. “They feel unwelcome here.”

Hamas-linked CAIR targets Oberlin prof who was critical of jihad terror (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/hamas-linked-cair-targets-oberlin-prof-who-was-critical-of-jihad-terror)

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/hamas-linked-cair-targets-oberlin-prof-who-was-critical-of-jihad-terror


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/UnknownHistory-210x300.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/UnknownHistory.jpg)

Hamas-linked CAIR guns for anyone and everyone who dares to utter the slightest critical word about jihad terror and Islamic supremacist. This includes even ex-Muslims such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the latest head they’ve added to their collection, and this professor, Samir Amin Abdellatif, who is the publisher of a book by another ex-Muslim, Sami Benjamin. The statements listed as egregious by Hamas-liked CAIR and repeated uncritically by this credulous reporter are all readily demonstrable from Islamic doctrine and history. As Pamela Geller says, Truth is the new hate speech. Indeed so.

“Muslim advocacy group calls for investigation by Oberlin College into lecturer’s ‘bigotry,’” by Chelsea Miller for the Chronicle-Telegram (http://chronicle.northcoastnow.com/2014/04/11/muslim-advocacy-group-calls-investigation-oberlin-college-professors-bigotry/), April 11:
OBERLIN — The Cleveland chapter of the Council on America-Islamic Relations is asking Oberlin College to investigate a lecturer in the Arabic Language Department whom they say openly promotes “anti-Muslim bigotry and crude stereotypes of Muslims in his writings on campus.”

CAIR-Cleveland said lecturer Samir Amin Abdellatif is the publisher of a 290-page tract that “vilifies” Islam and Muslims. The organization said Abdellatif’s publication, entitled “The Unknown History of Islam,” promotes xenophobic views about Muslim immigration to the West, as well as supports “outlandish conspiracy theories.”
A “290-page tract” is a book, not a tract, but Islamic supremacists do everything they can to demean those who oppose jihad terror.
CAIR-Cleveland has requested that the college investigate Abdellatif’s teachings through a letter sent to Oberlin College President Marvin Krislov on March 11. In the letter, Shearson wrote, “We believe the reputation of Oberlin College is tarnished and students are done a disservice by having an Arabic language instructor who openly promotes anti-Muslim bigotry and who condones crude and ugly caricatures of Muslims.”

CAIR-Cleveland Executive Director Julia Shearson said CAIR has not heard back from the college.

“We’re very disappointed,” she said.

Oberlin College spokesman Scott Wargo declined to comment on the allegations against Abdellatif but he said, “The college is carefully considering the CAIR-Ohio letter and is in the process of determining how best to respond.”

Wargo would not say how long Abdellatif has worked at the college or if he has been the subject of any other complaints. The college’s website lists Abdellatif as a visiting assistant professor in the Arabic department.

A description of Abdellatif’s book “The Unknown History of Islam” on Amazon.com describes it as one that “exposes the radical extremists who tarnish the peaceful religion of Islam,” as well as exposes “the goals and plans of terrorist groups such as Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Taliban, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and The Muslim Brotherhood.

“The book also shows how peaceful Muslims who are the sweeping majority of Muslims become victims to those extremists and terrorists. … This book is a rational analysis of the past and present of Islam, the authenticity of the Quran, the life of Muslims under Sharia law, and the control of the clergy over the lives of Muslims, but it warns of the lurking danger of radical Islam that might jeopardize human civilization if it is not stopped immediately,” according to the description.

Shearson said she has read “The Unknown History of Islam,” and while she supports freedom of speech through the First Amendment, she does not support a person with anti-Islamic views in a teaching position.
In other words, she doesn’t really support freedom of speech through the First Amendment.
Shearson said she believes Abdellatif is promoting his views as scholarly research.

“Our interest is really the credibility of this person,” she said.
The book description at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/The-Unknown-History-Islam-Sociological/dp/0615806929/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1397223377&sr=8-1&keywords=Samir+Amin+Abdellatif) says: “The author of this book, Sami Benjamin, was born in Iraq in 1949. He was raised as a Muslim in a Baghdad neighborhood. He moved to the United Kingdom in 1985, escaping Saddam’s regime. Currently, he works in a publishing company in London since 2012. The author lives with his wife in a London suburb. He has three children and six grand children. The author had the privilege of the friendship of Mr. Samir Amin Abdel Latif of the Indian Publishing House in India who helped the author publish this book. The publisher, Samir Amin Abdel Latif, is an Indian national and was born in 1954 in Hyderabad, India; he lives in India and continues to reveal the truth about the Quran.”

A Muslim who was born and raised in Iraq has no credibility to speak about Islam? Then who does? As far as Hamas-linked CAIR is concerned, only those who are uncritical and fulsome in their praise of the religion, not anyone who dares to whisper a hint of concern about jihad terror or Islamic supremacism.
CAIR has spoken out against numerous sections of the book, including portions that allegedly read, “Islam is an ideology of control, not for human and brotherly love,” and “Muslims would try to force their values and traditions on others callously. They would force their neighbors to cover their heads; otherwise they taunt them for not being modest; Muslim teachers would try to make their Christian students pray according to their Islamic religion.”
Yet we have seen Muslims forcing their neighbors to cover their heads. Amina Muse Ali was a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab. (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/10/somalia-islamic-supremacists-murder-christian-woman-for-refusing-to-wear-veil/) Muslim and non-Muslim teachers at the Islamic College of South Australia who were told that they had to wear the hijab (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/02/south-australias-biggest-islamic-school-warns-muslim-and-non-muslim-teachers-that-theyll-be-fired-if/) or be fired. Elementary school teachers in Tunisia who were threatened with death (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/12/sharia-in-action-in-arab-spring-tunisia-islamic-supremacists-threaten-to-kill-teachers-without-veil/) for not wearing hijab. Syrian schoolgirls who were forbidden to go to school (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/09/syria-the-islamic-state-of-iraq-and-the-levant-has-forbidden-girls-in-primary-education-and-above-fr/) unless they wore hijab. Women in Gaza were forced by Hamas (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2009/07/hamas-to-force-gaza-women-to-cover-hair/) to wear hijab. Women in London were threatened with death by Muslim thugs (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/04/uk-london-taliban-threatens-to-murder-women-who-dont-wear-headscarf/) if they didn’t wear hijab.
Shearson said those are portions of the book that promote incorrect stereotypes of the culture.

CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding, according to the organization.
Note Chelsea Miller’s uncritical repetition of CAIR’s self-description. Would she repeat without caveat or opposing voice the self-description of the American Freedom Defense Initiative? What do you think? She doesn’t deem it fit to print that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/016754.php) — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/014963.php)to (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/016017.php)denounce (http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/014790.php) Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror (http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/2003/06/cairs-legal-tribulations.html). CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements (http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=53303). Its California chapter distributed a poster (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2011/01/cairs-honest-ibe-hooper-admits-dont-talk-to-the-fbi-poster-crossed-a-line-but-those-who-noticed-that.html) telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI. CAIR has opposed every anti-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented.
Shearson, who said CAIR often becomes involved in civil rights issues, said the organization was alerted to the alleged anti-Muslim writing by Oberlin College professor Ali Yedes, who sued the college in 2011 for workplace discrimination. That case was later dismissed.

Yedes is at the center of another case through the Lorain County Court of Common Pleas. He was accused of harassing professor Eunjung An, who is suing the college for allegedly failing to address what An called a hostile work environment.

The lawsuit alleges that Yedes made several threats toward An beginning Jan. 18, 2006, when he accused An of “betraying him,” and he allegedly told her that in his culture, he could have the department’s chairwoman killed for postponing his tenure. The lawsuit said at the end of the “tirade,” Yedes “tightly hugged” An.

Shearson said that lawsuit is troubling because Oberlin College is reportedly using testimony from Abdellatif in its bid to remove Yedes, a Muslim professor who is chairman of the Arabic language program.

According to CAIR, Yedes is a long-time professor at Oberlin and has encouraged programs to increase dialogue on campus, including the promotion of an interfaith center in which the Torah and the Quran are both recited at the Jewish Sabbath services.
And I suppose that during jummah prayers in the mosque on Fridays, they read from the Torah as well as the Qur’an? No, of course they don’t. As always, interfaith “bridge-building” is all one-way.
The organization said Yedes is known for his promotion of interreligious understanding on campus.

Yedes’ attorney, Alan Kraus, said he is fighting the college to make sure that Yedes maintains his job after what he called erroneous statements made toward Yedes by Abdellatif. He said Yedes has worked at the college for more than a decade, while Abdellatif has been there less than a year.

“Mr. Abdellatif has made several untrue and defamatory statements regarding professor Yedes, including that he is anti-Semitic and a misogynist. Perhaps the most-egregious claim by Mr. Addellatif is that he claims that Professor Yedes told him that he planned to have another faculty member killed,” he said. “This terrible false accusation, which has been repeated countless (times) in other newspapers and by others on the Internet, has ruined professor Yedes’ good name and has fanned the flame of religious hatred and intolerance. It is a grave injustice that these untrue accusations by Mr. Abdellatif may cause professor Yedes to lose his job.”

The reported move to remove Yedes comes at the heels of Yedes’ discrimination case in which a U.S. District Court judge dismissed several claims but noted that there was no evidence of an investigation into alleged discriminatory remarks that were made from a colleague in the French department to Yedes.

According to court documents, that professor allegedly called Yedes a “terrorist” and made other derogatory statements, which Yedes said were reported to Oberlin College.

Abdellatif also has reported threats after filing an internal complaint against another teacher. He called police after an unknown man knocked on his door at around 2 a.m. Nov. 20 and told him to drop the complaint against the other teacher, “or else he will have to file other things and make things difficult for him,” according to a police report.

Abdellatif said the unknown man spoke in Arabic and left immediately when asked to come inside. He believed the man was sent by the other professor, who was not identified in the police report, to deliver the message.

“Moderate” Boston imam Suhaib Webb:
Hirsi Ali “idiot,” secularism “lunatic ideology”

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)



Apr 11, 2014
http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/moderate-boston-imam-suhaib-webb-hirsi-ali-idiot-secularism-lunatic-ideology


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HES6TpiVC-g


The Imam Suhaib Webb of the Islamic Society of Boston is a renowned “moderate” and — of course — a darling of the mainstream media. The hopelessly clueless and compromised Boston Globe reporter Lisa Wangsness wrote an egregious puff piece (http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/2013/05/11/imam-william-suhaib-webb-emerges-face-boston-muslim-community-time-crisis/CPHRVk6PpKB24h4XnhlfZI/story.html) on him in May 2013, right after the Boston Marathon jihad murders perpetrated by two members of the Islamic Society of Boston.

But in this video from Americans for Peace and Tolerance shows him openly calling for an Islamic state, dismissing secularism as a “radical lunatic ideology,” which means the dismissal of the idea that the government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed, and the embracing of the idea that the law of Allah constitutes the only legitimate constitution and government. He also calls Ayaan Hirsi Ali an “idiot,” and so in light of the looming anniversary of the Boston Marathon jihad bombing, the media’s fulsome praise for this Islamic supremacist, and the recent news about Ayaan Hirsi Ali being victimized by Hamas-linked CAIR, which Webb lauds here and for which he is speaking, that it would be a good time to post this video, which is from last October.

New York Drops Unit That Spied Among Muslims
By MATT APUZZO and JOSEPH GOLDSTEIN (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/g/joseph_goldstein/index.html)


http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/16/nyregion/police-unit-that-spied-on-muslims-is-disbanded.html?_r=1


The New York Police Department (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/n/new_york_city_police_department/index.html?inline=nyt-org) has abandoned a secretive program that dispatched plainclothes detectives into Muslim neighborhoods to eavesdrop on conversations and built detailed files on where people ate, prayed and shopped, the department said.

The decision by the nation’s largest police force to shutter the controversial surveillance program represents the first sign that William J. Bratton (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/b/william_j_bratton/index.html?inline=nyt-per), the department’s new commissioner, is backing away from some of the post-9/11 intelligence-gathering practices of his predecessor. The Police Department’s tactics, which are the subject of two federal lawsuits, drew criticism from civil rights groups and a senior official with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/f/federal_bureau_of_investigation/index.html?inline=nyt-org) who said they harmed national security by sowing mistrust for law enforcement in Muslim communities.

To many Muslims, the squad, known as the Demographics Unit, was a sign that the police viewed their every action with suspicion. The police mapped communities (http://hosted.ap.org/specials/interactives/documents/nypd/nypd-egypt.pdf) inside and outside the city (http://hosted.ap.org/specials/interactives/documents/nypd/nypd_newark.pdf), logging where customers in traditional Islamic clothes ate meals and documenting their lunch-counter conversations.

“The Demographics Unit created psychological warfare in our community,” said Linda Sarsour, of the Arab American Association of New York. “Those documents, they showed where we live. That’s the cafe where I eat. That’s where I pray. That’s where I buy my groceries. They were able to see their entire lives on those maps. And it completely messed with the psyche of the community.”

Ms. Sarsour was one of several advocates who met last Wednesday with Mr. Bratton and some of his senior staff members at Police Headquarters. She and others in attendance said the department’s new intelligence chief, John Miller, told them that the police did not need to work covertly to find out where Muslims gather and indicated the department was shutting the unit down.

The Demographics Unit, which was renamed the Zone Assessment Unit in recent years, has been largely inactive since Mr. Bratton took over in January, the department’s chief spokesman, Stephen Davis, said. The unit’s detectives were recently reassigned, he said.

“Understanding certain local demographics can be a useful factor when assessing the threat information that comes into New York City virtually on a daily basis,” Mr. Davis said. “In the future, we will gather that information, if necessary, through direct contact between the police precincts and the representatives of the communities they serve.”

The department’s change in approach comes as the federal government reconsiders and re-evaluates some of its own post-9/11 policies. Although the police department’s surveillance program was far smaller in scope than, say, the bulk data collection by the National Security Agency, a similar recalibration seems to be unfolding.

The Demographics Unit was the brainchild of the Central Intelligence Agency (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/c/central_intelligence_agency/index.html?inline=nyt-org) officer Lawrence Sanchez, who helped establish it in 2003 while working at the Police Department and while he was still on the spy agency’s payroll.

The goal was to identify the mundane locations where a would-be terrorist could blend into society. Plainclothes detectives looked for “hot spots” of radicalization that might give the police an early warning about terrorist plots. The squad, which typically consisted of about a dozen members, focused on 28 “ancestries of interest.”

Detectives were told to chat up the employees at Muslim-owned businesses and “gauge sentiment” about America and foreign policy. Through maps and photographs, the police noted where Albanian men played chess in the afternoon, where Egyptians watched soccer and where South Asians played cricket.

After years of collecting information, however, the police acknowledged (http://www.nyclu.org/files/releases/Galati_EBT_6.28.12.pdf) that it never generated a lead. Since The Associated Press published documents describing the program (http://www.ap.org/NYPD) in 2011, Muslims and civil rights groups have called for its closing.

Mr. Bratton has said that he intends to try to heal rifts between the Police Department and minority communities that have felt alienated as a result of policies pursued during the Bloomberg administration. The meeting last week put Mr. Bratton in the room with some of his department’s harshest critics.

“This is the first time we’ve felt that comfort sitting with them,” said Ahmad Jaber, who resigned from the Police Department’s Muslim advisory board last year to protest the surveillance tactics. “It’s a new administration, and they are willing to sit with the community and listen to their concerns.”

The Demographics Unit was one aspect of a broad intelligence-gathering effort. In addition, informants infiltrated Muslim student groups on college campuses and collected the names, phone numbers and addresses of those who attended. Analysts trawled college websites and email groups to keep tabs on Muslim scholars and who attended their lectures.

The police also designated entire mosques as suspected “terrorism enterprises,” a label that the police claimed allowed them to collect the license plate numbers of every car in mosque parking lots, videotape worshipers coming and going, and record sermons using informants wearing hidden microphones.

As a candidate, Mayor Bill de Blasio said he was “deeply troubled” by the tactic of surveilling mosques. Despite investigations that stretched for years, the Police Department’s efforts never led to charges that a mosque or Islamic organization was itself a terrorist enterprise.

The future of those programs remains unclear. The former police commissioner, Raymond W. Kelly (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/k/raymond_w_kelly/index.html?inline=nyt-per), has said his efforts were lawful and helped protect the city from terrorist attacks. Last month, a federal judge in New Jersey dismissed a lawsuit over the department’s surveillance there, saying Muslims could not prove they were harmed by the tactics.

Two other federal lawsuits continue to challenge the department’s tactics. One legal claim has been brought under a civil rights case that dates back to the Police Department’s surveillance of student groups and protesters in the 1960s and 1970s. Martin Stolar, one of the lawyers who brought that claim, maintains that the post-9/11 surveillance programs violate the court order in that case. A judge has not yet ruled on that question.

Like Muslim community leaders, Mr. Stolar said he wanted to see exactly what the department had planned. Police officials have changed the name of the program before, he said.

“I want them to say that they’re getting rid of not just the unit, but the kind of policing that the unit did,” Mr. Stolar said. “Is it still going to be blanket surveillance of where Muslims hang out? Are they going to stop this massive surveillance?”

Based on Mr. Davis’s remarks, the Police Department appears to be moving its policies closer to those of the F.B.I. Both agencies are allowed to use census data, public information and government data to create detailed maps of ethnic communities.

The F.B.I. is prohibited, however, from eavesdropping on and documenting innocuous conversations that would be protected by the First Amendment. F.B.I. lawyers in New York determined years ago that agents could not receive documents from the Demographics Unit without violating federal rules.

Until Mr. Stolar’s case is decided, the police may not destroy any of the Demographic Unit files, he said. Beyond that decision, the future of the documents is unclear.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement Tuesday that the closing of the unit was “a critical step forward in easing tensions between the police and the communities they serve, so that our cops and our citizens can help one another go after the real bad guys.”

Muslim guilty of killing wife whose murder was blamed on “Islamophobia”

By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/california-muslim-guilty-of-killing-wife-whose-murder-was-blamed-on-islamophobia


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/kassim_alhimidi_verdict_1397771628529_4118406_ver1 .0_640_480-300x225.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/kassim_alhimidi_verdict_1397771628529_4118406_ver1 .0_640_480.jpg)

This murder was a very big deal for awhile among Leftists and Islamic supremacists, although now (of course) they have forgotten that it ever happened. At the time, because of the note that was found by the body saying “Go back to your country, you terrorist,” the crime was universally reported as being motivated by “Islamophobia,” and the work of an “Islamophobe” who hated Shaima Alawadi for wearing a hijab. They even staged a campaign, “One Million Hijabs for Shaima Alawadi.” When it turned out to be an Islamic honor killing and Shaima’s husband was arrested for the murder, they went silent — with no retractions or apologies, of course.

Stooping lowest, not surprisingly, was current media darling Reza Aslan, who raged in this sub-literate tweet that Pamela Geller and I were responsible for the murder:

http://www.jihadwatch.org/WP001/wp-content/uploads/Aslanthreat.jpg

(Can you count the errors in that one brief tweet? Remember that Pamela’s last name is Geller, not Gellar. I count four. What a prodigious scholar Reza Aslan is! He is clearly not all that bright, frequently prone to egregious errors of fact, and ignorant of basic grammar and spelling rules, but he tells the PC crowd what they want to hear, and so is feted everywhere.) Anyway, in another tweet (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2012/04/justin-raimondo-apologizes-for-accusing-me-of-murder-reza-aslan-doubles-down.html), Aslan of course refused to apologize for smearing me for a murder. Classy guy.

The whole “hate crime” aspect of Shaima Alawadi’s murder was staged. It was apparently an Islamic honor killing for which Shaima Alawadi’s husband is now standing trial. Will the Leftists and Islamic supremacists who made so much of the hate crime now stage “One Million Hijabs Against Honor Killing”? Somehow I doubt it.

“Kassim Alhimidi found guilty in beating death of wife Shaima Alawadi,” by Steve Fiorina for 10News.com (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/www.10news.com/news/kassim-alhimidi-found-guilty-in-beating-death-of-wife-shaima-alawadi-041714), April 17:
EL CAJON, Calif. – An Iraqi immigrant was convicted Thursday of beating his wife to death in their El Cajon home after she asked for a divorce.

Jurors deliberated about a day and a half before finding Kassim Alhimidi, 49, guilty of first-degree murder in the death of 32-year-old Shaima Alawadi, a mother of five.

Investigators initially believed the killing might be a hate crime due to a photocopied note found about eight to 10 feet from the victim that read, “This is my country. Go back to yours, terrorist.”

The couple’s oldest son, Mohammed, stood up in the courtroom and screamed out profanities upon hearing the verdict, which he claimed was unjust.

“My dad is innocent; he was tried unfairly,” he said before being escorted out of the courtroom.

Another of the defendant’s sons, Ali, spoke in support of the verdict, as did the victim’s mother, with whom Alhimidi exchanged words in Arabic.

“He said, ‘God knows, and I attest to God, that I am not the killer. I’m innocent,’” according to a court interpreter.

Outside the courtroom, Rehima Alhussanwi talked to reporters about her son-in-law’s conviction and their courtrom exchange.

“He (Alhimidi) deserves worse,” she said. “What I said in the courtroom is this is the least, this is nothing. In Iraq, normally, if he killed her, he’s supposed to be killed the same way. So that’s the kind of sentence I wanted today.”

A May 15 sentencing date was scheduled for Alhimidi, who faces 26 years to life in prison.

Prosecutor Kurt Mechals said the defendant, upset that his wife wanted a divorce, killed her by hitting her at least six times in the head with a blunt object as she sat in front of a computer.

Alhimidi said he was out for a drive when his wife was killed the morning of March 21, 2012, but surveillance video taken from a nearby school showed his van in the area of the family home on Skyview Drive around the time the victim was attacked, Mechals said. A neighbor testified that he saw a dark-clothed person come from the backyard of the home around the time of the murder carrying a cardboard box.

Alawadi had told relatives she “couldn’t stand” the defendant and had taken out divorce papers, the prosecutor said.

“The relationship was in the tank. It was bad,” Mechals told the jury.

The couple’s then-17-year-old daughter, Fatima, told police she was upstairs when she heard a “squeal,” then later what sounded like a broken plate downstairs around 11 a.m. the day her mother was attacked. A pane from a sliding glass door had been broken from the inside, Mechals said.

Fatima — who had stayed home from school — thought her mother had fallen, but paramedics first on the scene said blood and other evidence was inconsistent with a fall.

Fatima had been at odds with her Muslim parents for dating a Chaldean, but she had no motive to kill her mother, according to Mechals, who told jurors it was “unreasonable to think she (Fatima) had anything to do with it.”

After his wife was taken to the hospital, Alhimidi asked relatives “what do you think will happen if she wakes up and says I hit her?” Mechals said.

Defense attorney Richard Berkon Jr. told the jury that Alhimidi did not kill his wife and loved her “with every fiber of his being.”

Berkon said his client had no motive to kill his spouse and in fact wanted to meet with her family to talk about the possible divorce.

The couple’s children said they never saw their father act violently toward their mother, Berkon said.

Alhimidi and his wife had separated once before, in 2004-2005, but got back together, the attorney said.

After the murder, the Alhimidi family traveled to Iraq for the burial.

When word leaked out that authorities were looking at the victim’s husband as a possible suspect, Iraqi officials told him he could stay in their country for safe haven, but he insisted on coming back to the United States to answer questions, Berkon said.

“If you murdered your wife, why come home?” he asked.

When his wife was taken off life support three days after she was attacked, Alhimidi was devastated and asked her for forgiveness, which is the custom in the Muslim religion, according to Berkon.

Police questioned the defendant for more than seven months before getting an unsolicited call in November 2012 from Fatima saying “My dad did it.” Alhimidi was arrested the next day.

Great Idea, Ibrahim Hooper!

IPT News
April 18, 2014
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4352/great-idea-ibrahim-hooper


http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/964_large.jpg

In a heated exchange last week, Ibrahim Hooper – national spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) – issued a put up or shut up kind of challenge to his organization's critics.

Hooper was pressed (http://video.foxnews.com/v/3454882390001/cair-leader-slams-allegations-from-critics/?playlist_id=2694949842001#sp=show-clips) by Fox News host Megyn Kelly about CAIR's record of failing to condemn terrorist groups like Hamas and Hizballah and other questionable positions. Hooper tried to deflect, blaming "Internet hate sites" for fueling "hate-filled smears against CAIR, which was founded in 1994.

"Please find something that CAIR has done or said in those 20 years that you find either extreme, objectionable, intolerant, whatever," Hooper said.

Don't mind if we do.

We've documented CAIR's dubious record for years, noting in a 2009 report (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/292.pdf#page=2) that the group responds to the very kind of specific examples Hooper demands to see by issuing ad hominem attacks against the messenger.

So, in a decidedly-less funny tribute to Late Show host David Letterman's pending retirement, here are the IPT's top 10 examples of "extreme, objectionable, intolerant, whatever" actions by CAIR. Together, they undermine CAIR's credibility as a mainstream, reliable arbiter in the debate about terrorism, extremism and the treatment of Muslims in America:
You'll have to provide your own drumroll.

10. Using civil rights instruction to scare the daylights out of Muslims and drive a wedge between the community and the FBI.

CAIR officials say their "Know Your Rights" seminars simply are meant to educate people that they have a right to have counsel present for questioning if the FBI approaches.

That would be fine if that's all they were. But CAIR's message is wrapped in paranoia, casting the FBI as an out-of-control monster whose agents will do everything and anything to set up innocent Muslims.

"They will do anything, anything within their power and oftentimes beyond their power to get you to talk," CAIR-New York board member (http://www.cair-ny.org/page/staff_and_board.html) Lamis Deek said at a 2011 seminar (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2845/cair-great-fbi-scare-lecture). "They will threaten you. OK? I've had one case where they tried to blackmail my client, I mean blackmail, seriously blackmail; that's illegal. But they'll do it."

This came two months after CAIR's San Francisco chapter posted a flyer (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2492/cair-imagery-makes-obstructionist-goal-clear) online urging Muslims to "Build a Wall of Resistance. Don't Talk to the FBI." In response, Hooper tried to minimize the incident (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2494/cair-how-dare-they-point-out-our-mistake) as a misinterpretation. The problem wasn't the flyer and its message. Instead, he told (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/01/13/cair-says-anti-fbi-poster-misinterpreted/) Fox News – surprise! – it was an "attack by the Islamophobic hate machine."

9. False Accusations of FBI Shootings
It has not happened often, but FBI agents have shot and killed Muslim suspects in separate episodes. In each case, CAIR immediately cast the shooting as unjustified, and demanded independent investigations. In each case, those wishes were granted. But when the reviews reached the opposite conclusion, that the shootings were justified based upon the suspect's actions, CAIR refused to accept that the suspect may have escalated the situation. This emphasis on blaming law enforcement no matter what should be viewed in the context of CAIR's campaign against the FBI illustrated in #10 above.

In 2009, agents shot and killed Detroit Imam Luqman Abdullah. Abdullah fired first as agents moved in to arrest him for conspiracy and weapons charges. A Justice Department Civil Rights Division investigation concluded (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1390.pdf)that agents opened fire "only after Imam Abdullah brandished a concealed handgun and shot toward them and that they legitimately feared that Imam Abdullah was in a position to cause death or significant injury to another."

Even though the report made a point of showing that audio recordings, ballistics and other evidence all corroborated the agents' accounts, and even though "[a] Glock 9mm handgun was found next to Imam Abdullah after the shooting and it had been fired," CAIR officials continued to cast the shooting as "an overblown military type raid." CAIR dismissed (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2243/cair-blasts-investigation-for-not-agreeing-with) the findings, along with similar conclusions from the Dearborn Police Department and Michigan attorney general, as "superficial and incomplete."

Last month, CAIR again took issue (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4328/cair-criticizes-independent-investigation-it) with an independent investigation for failing to agree with their spin. Ibragim Todashev, a friend of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was shot and killed by an FBI agent after hours of questioning in his Florida apartment. Todashev, a "skilled mixed-martial arts fighter," implicated himself in a triple murder in Massachusetts. Witnesses say he grew anxious and agitated before heaving a coffee table at the FBI agent, hitting him in the head. He grabbed a five-foot-long metal pole over his head "with the end of the pole pointed toward [the FBI agent] as if intended to be used to impale rather than strike," the investigation found (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/784.pdf#page=2).

CAIR's Tampa director said the report raised "several concerns and key inconsistencies and ... many important unanswered questions." The failure to bring charges hurts the FBI's credibility, he wrote on Twitter.

8. Refusing to Condemn Hamas and Hizballah as Terrorist Groups.
CAIR officials are great about condemning (http://www.investigativeproject.org/862/cair-big-on-the-gimmes) "all forms of terrorism and religious extremism." But try to drill down and ask about specific terrorist groups and CAIR does everything but give a straight answer. They'll stick with the universal rejection (http://video.foxnews.com/v/3913421/peace-does-not-make-the-news/#sp=show-clips) of anyone who engages in political violence as spokesman Corey Saylor did in 2008. Or, they'll refuse on principle, as Hooper did in 2002 when he told (http://old.post-gazette.com/headlines/20020210islamlobby0210p3.asp) the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that "We're not in the business of condemning."

That's consistent with Hooper's dodge in the weeks after 9/11. Challenged by journalist Jake Tapper, Hooper hedged when it came to Osama bin Laden, saying (http://www.salon.com/2001/09/26/muslims_2/) "If Osama bin Laden was behind it, we condemn him by name." Tapper was surprised — "why qualify the response?" he asked.

"Hooper said he resented the question."

Or, they'll go to bluster.

In that 2001 interview with Tapper, Hooper rejected the question about Hamas as "word games from the pro-Israel lobby."

This past November, CAIR-Los Angeles chief Hussam Ayloush reacted angrily (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4214/cair-ayloush-gives-dishonest-bullying-answer-to) to the very question. Simply being asked to condemn Hamas was "not acceptable," he said, and "proves that you have nothing but bigotry in you."

The group had no reservations condemning Israel, however, especially after it struck Hamas targets. CAIR condemned the killing (http://www.cair.com/press-center/press-releases/790-cair-condemns-israeli-assassination-of-religious-leader.html) of Hamas founder and spiritual leader Ahmed Yassin. The statement didn't mention his role in Hamas, but cast him as "a 67-year-old quadriplegic and the most prominent Palestinian Islamic figure."

In 2008, CAIR called reporters to a news conference to condemn Israel's 2008 "Cast Lead (http://mfa.gov.il/MFA/ForeignPolicy/Terrorism/Pages/Israel_strikes_back_against_Hamas_terror_infrastru cture_Gaza_27-Dec-2008.aspx)" incursion into Gaza aimed at stopping rampant Hamas rocket attacks targeting Israeli civilians. CAIR co-founder and Executive Director Nihad Awad demanded (http://youtu.be/uYIZXtlDCOY?t=1m) "that our government, the U.S. government, take immediate steps to end the immoral and illegal Israeli bombardment of Gaza and its population."

He said nothing about the Hamas rocket fire.

For CAIR officials, attacks on Israeli civilians may not be seen as terrorism, but as a form of "resistance (http://www.investigativeproject.org/986/cairs-true-colors)."

7. Lying About it to Megyn Kelly and Fox viewers.

In his appearance on Fox last week, Hooper misled the audience.

"We've condemned Hamas, we've condemned every Hezbollah, we've condemned -- we've condemned every organization that's on the list of terrorist designated by the U.S. government," he said.

6. Standing by Accused Terrorists and Terror Supporters
Our 2008 dossier on CAIR featured an entire section (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/116.pdf) devoted to CAIR's consistent behavior in casting doubt on terrorist and terror financing prosecutions. In each case, it was more than reminding people that, in our system, a person is innocent until proven guilty. To CAIR, these cases were inherently flawed, driven by politics, and unfair to Muslim Americans.
Among the examples:

· The conspiracy case against 11 Northern Virginia men who trained and planned to travel to wage jihad against American troops in Afghanistan after 9/11 was draconian (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/116.pdf#page=5) and an example of "selective prosecution of Muslims since the 9/11 terror attacks."

· The 2008 conviction of five men tied to the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) "was based more on fear-mongering than on the facts," CAIR said in a statement (http://www.cair.com/press-center/press-releases/3170-cair-says-hlf-verdict-based-on-fear-mongering.html). "It is particularly troubling that the government chose to use testimony from an anonymous witness, which deprives the defendants of their full right to confront their accusers. We expect the defendants to appeal this verdict and believe that it will eventually be overturned."

It wasn't (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3785/end-of-the-line-for-hlf).

· The 2011 arrest of Mansssor Arbabsiar for plotting to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to Washington, which was tied to elements inside the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps's Quds Force was dismissed (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3241/cair-odd-stand-on-iranian-assassination-plot) by key CAIR leaders as a trumped up entrapment case.

A year later, Arbabsiar pleaded guilty, admitting (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/2049.pdf) that "he conspired with officials in the Iranian military who were based in Iran, to cause the assassination of the Saudi Arabian Ambassador while the Ambassador was in the United States." CAIR said nothing about that.

But that position is consistent for CAIR, which casts virtually all arrests of terror suspects in FBI sting operations as inherently suspect. CAIR-San Francisco representative Zahra Billoo told a local television (http://www.ktvu.com/video/25955864/index.html) "that the FBI was looking for a sensational story" rather than stopping a threat when it arrested a man who believed he was about to blow up a packed Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Ore. Walid, the Michigan director mentioned earlier, has said (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2438/dawud-walid-unhinged) that the FBI "has recruited more so-called extremist Muslims than al-Qaida themselves."

CAIR officials also have claimed that the war on terrorism had become a war on Islam (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/117.pdf), a statement considered significant in radicalizing young Muslims. When we wrote about it in 2011, Hooper demanded (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3032/cair-spokesman-turns-blind-eye-to-war-on-islam) a correction. CAIR officials, he argued, merely said there was a perception. Their emphasis on this issue, he argued, somehow had nothing to do with accepting or reinforcing that perception.

5. Working to silence/marginalize critics, especially fellow Muslims
This one is fresh from the headlines. CAIR helped pressure (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4348/brandeis-flap-marks-another-win-for-islamist) Brandeis University last week into withdrawing plans to bestow an honorary degree on author Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She renounced Islam, and is dedicated to combating abuse of women in Muslim societies, especially the incidents of female genital mutilation. It is driven from her personal experiences.

But CAIR likened the original Brandeis plan to honor Hirsi Ali "to promoting the work of white supremacists and anti-Semites."

CAIR has twice failed in attempts (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4290/cair-again-shows-it-cant-stand-other-muslim) to get Zuhdi Jasser, a fellow Muslim who opposes CAIR's Islamist political agenda, removed from the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. Most recently, CAIR believed Jasser should be disqualified because they don't like people who have supported his work financially. Jasser was appointed to a new term (http://www.uscirf.gov/news-room/press-releases/uscirf-commissioners-reappointed) a week ago.

CAIR even tried to intimidate (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3284/cair-slams-muslim-foes-of-al-shabaab) Somali Americans who were trying to stem the flow of young men in the Minneapolis area who returned to Somalia to fight with the al-Shabaab terrorist group. It called two men "anti-Muslim" (http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/dpp/news/tom-lydens-reporters-notebook-nov-8-2011) for participating in a seminar which included a discussion about al-Shabaab.

4. Trying to stifle any discussion radical Islam plays in terror attacks and plots.
When Army psychiatrist Nidal Hassan opened fire on his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood in 2009, CAIR argued (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1500/introspection-not-rationalization-needed-in-wake) that Hassan's religious motivation should not be part of the ensuing debate. Hassan, however, self-identified as a "Soldier of Allah" on his business card and gave a presentation (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1508/hasan-and-the-big-lie-us-war-against-islam) called, "Why the War on Terror is a War on Islam." But Hooper went on a radio show to speculate that perhaps Hassan "just snapped ... when these things happen and the guy's name is John Smith nobody says well what about his religious beliefs? But when it is a Muslim sounding name that automatically comes into it."

CAIR officials downplay religious motivation in other (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3381/cair-manipulation-tactics-in-tampa) terror plots and say (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/118.pdf) terms like jihad and radical Islam should not be used in discussing terrorist plots and attacks by Muslims. In that vein, CAIR conspired (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2226/cair-academic-scheme-to-inflate-book-saleshttp:/www.investigativeproject.org/2226/cair-academic-scheme-to-inflate-book-sales) with a political scientist in 2010 to gin up sales of a book which claimed that religious extremism was a minimal factor in suicide bombings.

3. Soliciting dictators for donations.

CAIR directly asked (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2709/cair-officials-sought-gaddafi-money) the late-Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi to underwrite a program to distribute Qurans. Awad praised Gaddafi as "the world Islamic popular leader." Law enforcement sources told (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4166/cair-leaders-curry-favor-with-dictators) the IPT that Awad met with officials representing Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir in November 2009, months after Bashir was charged with crimes against humanity.

State Department records show that a CAIR delegation sought millions of dollars during trips to Saudi Arabia (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/270.pdf) and the United Arab Emirates (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/271.pdf) in 2006.

2. Appearing on Iranian and Hamas television to criticize the treatment of Muslims in the United States.

Though the practice has waned, CAIR officials from throughout the country have proven more than happy to appear on Iran's Press TV (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3289/american-islamists-and-iranian-propaganda) and Hamas's Al-Quds (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3087/cair-rep-speaks-on-hamas-tv) television. The CAIR representatives rarely spoke about the freedom Muslims enjoy in America. Rather, they painted pictures of Muslims being demonized in America and unfairly targeted by law enforcement. The one time Hooper did say something positive, he followed it by saying, "there is also a sense of being under siege from these hate mongers that are constantly trying to demonize our faith."

When violent, anti-American protests broke out in Muslim countries in 2012, a CAIR official told (http://www.investigativeproject.org/3752/cair-rep-violence-shows-it-america-that-needs-to) Press TV that, "People have had enough of what is seen by them, what looks to them like America's war on Islam."

And the No. 1 example of CAIR being "extreme, objectionable, intolerant, whatever..."

The Palestine Committee.
Although it is a Muslim advocacy organization, CAIR was born from an original sin. It was part of something called the Palestine Committee, a Muslim Brotherhood umbrella organization created to support Hamas politically and financially. The evidence for this comes not from "Internet hate sites," as Hooper is fond of saying, but from internal documents seized by the FBI and admitted into evidence in the HLF trial.

Here's a Palestine Committee meeting agenda (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/717.pdf#page=6) listing CAIR among its member organizations. Here's the committee's telephone list (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/701.pdf#page=4), including CAIR founders Awad and Ahmad (listed as Omar Yehya). Here's a federal judge's opinion (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1425.pdf#page=15) that the government produced "ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR .... with Hamas."

CAIR has never acknowledged this history. They even tried to argue (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2147/imams-suit-questions-existence-of-palestine) that the Palestine Committee never existed.

It didn't work (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4054/judge-ends-imam-lawsuit-triggered-by-ipt-report).

This evidence is the reason that the FBI cut off relations (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1029/fbi-explains-its-cair-cut-off) with CAIR outside of official investigations in 2008.

"[u] ntil we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner," an FBI assistant director explained in a 2009 letter (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/265.pdf). [Emphasis added]

The policy remains in effect (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4165/wolf-demands-fbi-punish-agents-for-cair-contact), meaning the question has not been resolved.

Yet, in his interview with Kelly, Hooper tried to make relations between CAIR and the FBI seem fine, saying "we have relations, we're on a daily contact with the FBI on civil rights issues –on a variety of things."

Rather than acknowledge their record and try to claim things have changed, Hooper and CAIR engage in denial and deflection. Read through this Top 10 again. The examples cited come from the mouths of CAIR officials themselves or from court documents.

CAIR must fear what would happen if the broader public understands that, thus the emphasis on "Internet hate sites."

Ibrahim Hooper issued a challenge. We thank him for it.

Great Idea, Ibrahim Hooper!

IPT News
April 18, 2014
http://www.investigativeproject.org/4352/great-idea-ibrahim-hooper


http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/964_large.jpg
In a heated exchange last week, Ibrahim Hooper – national spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) – issued a put up or shut up kind of challenge to his organization's critics.

Hooper was pressed (http://video.foxnews.com/v/3454882390001/cair-leader-slams-allegations-from-critics/?playlist_id=2694949842001#sp=show-clips) by Fox News host Megyn Kelly about CAIR's record of failing to condemn terrorist groups like Hamas and Hizballah and other questionable positions. Hooper tried to deflect, blaming "Internet hate sites" for fueling "hate-filled smears against CAIR, which was founded in 1994.

"Please find something that CAIR has done or said in those 20 years that you find either extreme, objectionable, intolerant, whatever," Hooper said.

Don't mind if we do.

We've documented CAIR's dubious record for years, noting in a 2009 report (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/292.pdf#page=2) that the group responds to the very kind of specific examples Hooper demands to see by issuing ad hominem attacks against the messenger.

So, in a decidedly-less funny tribute to Late Show host David Letterman's pending retirement, here are the IPT's top 10 examples of "extreme, objectionable, intolerant, whatever" actions by CAIR. Together, they undermine CAIR's credibility as a mainstream, reliable arbiter in the debate about terrorism, extremism and the treatment of Muslims in America:
You'll have to provide your own drumroll.

10. Using civil rights instruction to scare the daylights out of Muslims and drive a wedge between the community and the FBI.

CAIR officials say their "Know Your Rights" seminars simply are meant to educate people that they have a right to have counsel present for questioning if the FBI approaches.

That would be fine if that's all they were. But CAIR's message is wrapped in paranoia, casting the FBI as an out-of-control monster whose agents will do everything and anything to set up innocent Muslims.

"They will do anything, anything within their power and oftentimes beyond their power to get you to talk," CAIR-New York board member (http://www.cair-ny.org/page/staff_and_board.html) Lamis Deek said at a 2011 seminar (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2845/cair-great-fbi-scare-lecture). "They will threaten you. OK? I've had one case where they tried to blackmail my client, I mean blackmail, seriously blackmail; that's illegal. But they'll do it."

This came two months after CAIR's San Francisco chapter posted a flyer (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2492/cair-imagery-makes-obstructionist-goal-clear) online urging Muslims to "Build a Wall of Resistance. Don't Talk to the FBI." In response, Hooper tried to minimize the incident (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2494/cair-how-dare-they-point-out-our-mistake) as a misinterpretation. The problem wasn't the flyer and its message. Instead, he told (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2011/01/13/cair-says-anti-fbi-poster-misinterpreted/) Fox News – surprise! – it was an "attack by the Islamophobic hate machine."

9. False Accusations of FBI Shootings
It has not happened often, but FBI agents have shot and killed Muslim suspects in separate episodes. In each case, CAIR immediately cast the shooting as unjustified, and demanded independent investigations. In each case, those wishes were granted. But when the reviews reached the opposite conclusion, that the shootings were justified based upon the suspect's actions, CAIR refused to accept that the suspect may have escalated the situation. This emphasis on blaming law enforcement no matter what should be viewed in the context of CAIR's campaign against the FBI illustrated in #10 above.

In 2009, agents shot and killed Detroit Imam Luqman Abdullah. Abdullah fired first as agents moved in to arrest him for conspiracy and weapons charges. A Justice Department Civil Rights Division investigation concluded (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1390.pdf)that agents opened fire "only after Imam Abdullah brandished a concealed handgun and shot toward them and that they legitimately feared that Imam Abdullah was in a position to cause death or significant injury to another."

Even though the report made a point of showing that audio recordings, ballistics and other evidence all corroborated the agents' accounts, and even though "[a] Glock 9mm handgun was found next to Imam Abdullah after the shooting and it had been fired," CAIR officials continued to cast the shooting as "an overblown military type raid." CAIR dismissed (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2243/cair-blasts-investigation-for-not-agreeing-with) the findings, along with similar conclusions from the Dearborn Police Department and Michigan attorney general, as "superficial and incomplete."

Last month, CAIR again took issue (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4328/cair-criticizes-independent-investigation-it) with an independent investigation for failing to agree with their spin. Ibragim Todashev, a friend of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was shot and killed by an FBI agent after hours of questioning in his Florida apartment. Todashev, a "skilled mixed-martial arts fighter," implicated himself in a triple murder in Massachusetts. Witnesses say he grew anxious and agitated before heaving a coffee table at the FBI agent, hitting him in the head. He grabbed a five-foot-long metal pole over his head "with the end of the pole pointed toward [the FBI agent] as if intended to be used to impale rather than strike," the investigation found (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/784.pdf#page=2).

CAIR's Tampa director said the report raised "several concerns and key inconsistencies and ... many important unanswered questions." The failure to bring charges hurts the FBI's credibility, he wrote on Twitter.

8. Refusing to Condemn Hamas and Hizballah as Terrorist Groups.
CAIR officials are great about condemning (http://www.investigativeproject.org/862/cair-big-on-the-gimmes) "all forms of terrorism and religious extremism." But try to drill down and ask about specific terrorist groups and CAIR does everything but give a straight answer. They'll stick with the universal rejection (http://video.foxnews.com/v/3913421/peace-does-not-make-the-news/#sp=show-clips) of anyone who engages in political violence as spokesman Corey Saylor did in 2008. Or, they'll refuse on principle, as Hooper did in 2002 when he told (http://old.post-gazette.com/headlines/20020210islamlobby0210p3.asp) the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that "We're not in the business of condemning."

That's consistent with Hooper's dodge in the weeks after 9/11. Challenged by journalist Jake Tapper, Hooper hedged when it came to Osama bin Laden, saying (http://www.salon.com/2001/09/26/muslims_2/) "If Osama bin Laden was behind it, we condemn him by name." Tapper was surprised — "why qualify the response?" he asked.
"Hooper said he resented the question."

Or, they'll go to bluster.

In that 2001 interview with Tapper, Hooper rejected the question about Hamas as "word games from the pro-Israel lobby."

This past November, CAIR-Los Angeles chief Hussam Ayloush reacted angrily (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4214/cair-ayloush-gives-dishonest-bullying-answer-to) to the very question. Simply being asked to condemn Hamas was "not acceptable," he said, and "proves that you have nothing but bigotry in you."

The group had no reservations condemning Israel, however, especially after it struck Hamas targets. CAIR condemned the killing (http://www.cair.com/press-center/press-releases/790-cair-condemns-israeli-assassination-of-religious-leader.html) of Hamas founder and spiritual leader Ahmed Yassin. The statement didn't mention his role in Hamas, but cast him as "a 67-year-old quadriplegic and the most prominent Palestinian Islamic figure."

In 2008, CAIR called reporters to a news conference to condemn Israel's 2008 "Cast Lead (http://mfa.gov.il/MFA/ForeignPolicy/Terrorism/Pages/Israel_strikes_back_against_Hamas_terror_infrastru cture_Gaza_27-Dec-2008.aspx)" incursion into Gaza aimed at stopping rampant Hamas rocket attacks targeting Israeli civilians. CAIR co-founder and Executive Director Nihad Awad demanded (http://youtu.be/uYIZXtlDCOY?t=1m) "that our government, the U.S. government, take immediate steps to end the immoral and illegal Israeli bombardment of Gaza and its population."

He said nothing about the Hamas rocket fire.

For CAIR officials, attacks on Israeli civilians may not be seen as terrorism, but as a form of "resistance (http://www.investigativeproject.org/986/cairs-true-colors)."

7. Lying About it to Megyn Kelly and Fox viewers.

Here's a federal judge's opinion (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1425.pdf#page=15) that the government produced "ample evidence to establish the associations of CAIR .... with Hamas."

CAIR has never acknowledged this history. They even tried to argue (http://www.investigativeproject.org/2147/imams-suit-questions-existence-of-palestine) that the Palestine Committee never existed.
It didn't work (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4054/judge-ends-imam-lawsuit-triggered-by-ipt-report).

This evidence is the reason that the FBI cut off relations (http://www.investigativeproject.org/1029/fbi-explains-its-cair-cut-off) with CAIR outside of official investigations in 2008.

"[u] ntil we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and HAMAS, the FBI does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner," an FBI assistant director explained in a 2009 letter (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/265.pdf). [Emphasis added]

The policy remains in effect (http://www.investigativeproject.org/4165/wolf-demands-fbi-punish-agents-for-cair-contact), meaning the question has not been resolved.
Yet, in his interview with Kelly, Hooper tried to make relations between CAIR and the FBI seem fine, saying "we have relations, we're on a daily contact with the FBI on civil rights issues –on a variety of things."

Rather than acknowledge their record and try to claim things have changed, Hooper and CAIR engage in denial and deflection. Read through this Top 10 again. The examples cited come from the mouths of CAIR officials themselves or from court documents.

CAIR must fear what would happen if the broader public understands that, thus the emphasis on "Internet hate sites."

Ibrahim Hooper issued a challenge. We thank him for it.

Anti-Israel BDS Resolutions Seize Campuses in Ontario, Canada


by Christine Williams (http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/author/Christine+Williams)


April 22, 2014 at 4:30 am
http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4263/israel-bds-ontario-canada (http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/4263/israel-bds-ontario-canada) Hamas -- the terrorist group and offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood -- has fueled and directed the BDS and Israel Apartheid Week campaigns on campuses across North America.

"Islam is my life... Jihad is my spirit... I will die to establish Islam." — from the Muslim Student Association pledge of allegiance.

Under the guise of promoting peace and human rights, resolutions to join Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions drives are being foisted on Canadian university campuses to push the agenda of the Muslim terrorist group, Hamas, to destroy Israel.

It is Hamas—an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood—that has fueled and directed (http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Columnists/The-world-from-here-Hamas-and-BDS-344303) the BDS and Israel Apartheid Week campaigns on university campuses across North America through chapters of the Muslim Student Association and the Palestine Solidarity Network.

Despite drawing a negligible fraction of the student population, the votes are gaining traction. According to the website of the Palestinian BDS National Committee, BDS is a global campaign designed to pressure Israel to end its so-called "occupation and colonization of all Arab lands." Hidden is the real BDS agenda: to delegitimize and ultimately obliterate Israel by destroying its economy.

Also concealed in these drives are Israel's reason for so-called "occupation," and the fact that Palestinians are treated better in Israel than by their own vicious leadership (http://www.palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=582) who sometimes even use their own people as human shields.

Toronto's Ryerson University students reportedly (http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/04/04/ryerson-student-union-becomes-only-the-latest-to-support-israel-boycott-campaign/) became the 11th student union to vote in support of the anti-Israel BDS campaign, giving "student politicians" the mandate to pressure the university administration to cut ties with all companies that support what the BDS campaign asserts is "Israeli apartheid." Not only do they invariably fail to provide any evidence to support that allegation, they fail to mention the very real apartheid that still exists against Palestinians in Lebanon and Kuwait, where they are forbidden to hold a whole array of jobs and privileges enjoyed by other residents. They also fail to mention the very real apartheid against non-Muslims that exists in countries such as Saudi Arabia -- where there are roads they may not travel on, cities they may not enter and books they may not bring in; or Pakistan, where non-Muslims effectively receive no protection from the law-enforcement agencies.


http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/pics/large/472.jpg
Anti-Israel students at Ryerson University in Toronto jeer Jewish students who spoke out against a student council motion to support BDS.


In addition to York University students voting for BDS a year ago, the McMaster University student union in Hamilton voted in favor (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/hamilton/news/mcmaster-students-support-israel-boycott-in-tense-meeting-1.2588162) of a BDS resolution this past March.

After the vote, Raphael Szajnfarber, McMaster Hillel's Director of Jewish Student Life, commented, "I can tell you it was a toxic environment in the room tonight. ... "I know that some students did indeed feel targeted."

Students at the University of Windsor have also supported BDS by a narrow vote. Apparent "discrepancies", however, prompted an investigation by the university administration, and may yet see the vote thrown out.

The Ontario Public Interest Research Group [OPIRG], through its website "The ShakeUp," accused (http://windsorshakeup.com/2014/03/05/march-5-2014-interference-in-bds-referendum-on-university-of-windsor-campus/) Windsor University president Alan Wildeman of being undemocratic by threatening to have the referendum "quashed." Before the referendum, Wildeman expressed in a letter (http://www1.uwindsor.ca/president/system/files/letter-to-uwsa.pdf) the "well documented and detailed complaints" about the student referendum, and stated that "the University cannot allow student organizations to compromise the University's commitment to provide a welcoming learning and living environment for each and every student on our campus."

The ShakeUp report, however, blamed Wildeman for "a heavy-handed attack leveled directly at the Palestinian Solidarity Group," and also launched a tirade not only against Wildeman, but also "the ignorant colonial mentality that tore apart First Nations in what is now Canada."

All the while, however, the "The ShakeUp" report concealed the real goals of the Muslim Student Association and Palestinian Solidarity Group.

After the Windsor referendum, Member of Parliament Jeff Watson called (http://news.nationalpost.com/2014/04/04/ryerson-student-union-becomes-only-the-latest-to-support-israel-boycott-campaign/) the BDS movement "hateful and deceitful" and denounced "this new anti-Semitism poisoning our Canadian campuses."

Howard English, the Toronto-area President of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs [CIJA], stated that such campus resolutions and boycotts are not really intended to promote peace and human rights but are "ultimately opposed to Israel's existence as a state."

Meanwhile, a Muslim woman, Mais Ali-Saleh, who grew up in an Arab village outside of Nazareth, Israel, was lauded in, "Guess Who's Valedictorian at Israel's Top Medical School?" (http://israelseen.com/2013/07/19/guess-whos-valedictorian-at-israels-top-medical-school/) On trips to Europe, Ali-Selah said that people are surprised to learn that in Israel, Israeli Arabs can study medicine and engineering. Ali-Saleh opposes BDS and the notion of Israel as an "apartheid state." She said that movements such as BDS deny a fundamental truth: "Arabs," she said, "and in particular Arab women, have more freedom, liberties and academic opportunities in Israel than in any Arab country."

One well-known company targeted by BDS is SodaStream, where Israelis and Palestinians have been working together, embodying real "peace and human rights" for decades. It is also where, as referenced in the not particularly pro-Israel publication, Haaretz (http://www.haaretz.com/news/features/1.571948), "truth be told, the SodaStream workers and local Palestinians were downright peeved when asked about the efforts of solidarity activists and their own government to boycott SodaStream."

The propaganda and lies of the BDS movement on our campuses, combined with Western naivety, is a potent brew that needs to be challenged by university administrations and at every level of society. Far too many are unaware that the Muslim Student Association's pledge of allegiance (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRNCYRBBEu8) is: "Allah is my Lord. Islam is my life. The Koran is my guide.

The Sunna is my practice. Jihad is my Spirit. Righteousness is my character and paradise is my goal. I enjoin what is right. I forbid what is wrong. I will fight against oppression and I will die to establish Islam." The MSA pledge of allegiance is virtually one and the same as the Muslim Brotherhood's motto, which states: "Allah is our objective. The prophet is our leader.

Qur'an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."

US deports Pakistani Muslim for supporting jihad terrorism


By Robert Spencer (http://www.jihadwatch.org/author/samir)

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/us-deports-pakistani-muslim-for-supporting-jihad-terrorism


http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/ice-21-300x225.jpg (http://www.jihadwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/ice-21.jpg)


It has been obvious for years that the Pakistanis have been aiding the same jihadists that the U.S. government has been giving them billions of dollars to fight. The New York Times reported on that at length back in 2008 (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2008/09/pakistans-double-game-exposed). And recently we learned (http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/03/chief-of-pakistans-spy-service-knew-where-bin-laden-was-hiding) that Ahmed Shuja Pasha, the head of the ISI, the Pakistani government’s spy service, knew the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden, and apparently so did many other top officials in the Pakistani government. Yet Pakistan remains a U.S. ally. So why is Zahid Yousaf being deported? He ought to be given a medal and a seat on the Homeland Security Advisory Council.

“US deports Pak national for supporting terrorism,” The Nation (http://www.nation.com.pk/national/25-Apr-2014/us-deports-pak-national-for-supporting-terrorism) (Pakistan), April 25, 2014: WASHINGTON : The US has deported a Pakistani national sentenced to three years in prison for providing material support to a foreign terrorist organisation. Zahid Yousaf, 45, was put on a Karachi-bound commercial plane on April 16th and was handed over to Pakistani law-enforcement agencies two days later, the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a statement. Yousaf pleaded guilty to a felony count of conspiracy for providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organisation in federal court in September 2011.

The US District Court for the District of Columbia subsequently sentenced Yousaf to 36 months in federal prison in December 2011 and ordered his removal from the country, following the completion of his sentence. The convict was taken into immigration custody on October 22, 2013 after his release from prison by the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (ICE). “ICE will continue to focus its enforcement operations on identifying, arresting and removing dangerous criminals who pose the greatest risk to our communities,” said ICE’s Acting Field Office Director Michael W Meade. In fiscal year 2013, ICE conducted 368,644 removals nationwide.

Arizona: Muslim claims Islamic law gives him right to kill wife

By Robert Spencer

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/arizona-muslim-claims-islamic-law-gives-him-right-to-kill-wife

Ansar Muhammad This is awkward. Where did Ansar Muhammad get the crazy idea that Islam allows him to kill his wife if he so chooses? Has he been fooled by the venomous writings of greasy Islamophobes? Or has he extrapolated from the idea that a Muslim should beat a woman from whom he “fears disobedience” (Qur’an 4:34) and from the general culture of the Qur’an and Sunnah, that treats women as commodities of men, to be disposed of as men please? Will moderate Muslim leaders in Arizona and elsewhere in the U.S. denounce this and explain exactly how Ansar Muhammad has become a misunderstander of Islam?

“Man allegedly claims Islamic Law gives him to right to kill wife,” by Kim Schriner, Fox 10 News, April 28, 2014:

AVONDALE, Ariz. – Police say a valley man threatened to kill his wife, telling his victim “Islamic Law” gave him the right to kill her.

Ansar Muhammad, 43, is facing several charges, including assault and imprisonment.

According to the police report, on April 26, Muhammad sexually assaulted the victim, held her against her will while threatening to kill her, punched and strangulated her, causing physical injuries at their home near 112th Avenue and Encanto Boulevard.

Police say the victim fled to a neighbor’s home to call them after the suspect fell asleep.

Muhammad was detained outside his residence upon police arrival and refused to make any statements.

In the report, police say their investigation determined that Muhammad and the victim were arguing about her having an affair when “Ansar picked the victim up, carrying her like a baby and put her in their vehicle against her will.” He then proceeded to drive to the rear of a nearby Walgreens store where “Ansar began to assault the victim by punching her multiple times, leaving physical injuries on her face, neck, back, chest and legs.”

When the victim continued to try to get away and told him to stop, police say he told the victim he was going to kill her because he had the right due to his “Islamic Belief.”

The victim told police Muhammad then drove back to their home and threatened to throw her in a lake because she can’t swim. When they arrived at the residence, Muhammad told the victim to remain quiet and not wake their three children before taking her phone, per the police report.

Muhammad was arrested and booked into the Avondale city jail and later transported to the Maricopa County jail. He faces aggravated assault domestic violence-impede breathing, assault-intent/reckless/injury, unlawful imprisonment, threatening-intimidation with injury and sexual assault charges.

He’s being held without bond.

Islamists Seek to Bury 9/11 Truth (IBD)
The death of 3,000 didn't upset them nearly as much as telling the truth about what motivated the hijackers.


http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/042514-698551-al-qaida-911-museum-film-muslims.htm


Death Of Truth: An imam objects to a film set to be shown at the National September 11 Memorial Museum because it might make people believe radical Islam was involved in the terrorist attacks. We're not making this up.

"]It has been said that the first casualty of war is truth. And in this age of political correctness, the war on terrorism — described by this administration as either over or merely a series of overseas contingency operations in response to man-caused disasters — is a classic example.

The lone imam on an interfaith advisory group to the National September 11 Memorial Museum, set to open May 21, has quit in protest of a seven-minute documentary narrated by NBC anchor and noted right-wing extremist Brian Williams because it might give low-information viewers the impression that the al-Qaida terrorists who attacked America and killed 3,000 people were, dare we say it, Muslims.

"The screening of this film in its present state would greatly offend our local Muslim believers as well as any foreign Muslim visitor to the museum," Sheikh Mostafa Elazabawy, the imam of Masjid Manhattan, wrote in a letter to the museum's director.

"Unsophisticated visitors who do not understand the difference between al-Qaida and Muslims may come away with a prejudiced view of Islam, leading to antagonism and even confrontation toward Muslim believers near the site."

We understand the difference and have often stated the truth that while, obviously, only a fringe few Muslims are actually terrorists, all the 9/11 terrorists were Muslims dedicated to Islamic jihad. But the words the imam would strike from the film, titled "The Rise of Al Qaeda," would be like producing a film on Pearl Harbor and World War II without mentioning Japan and events such as the Bataan Death March and the Rape of Nanking.

As blogger Pamela Geller puts it, it is not we who associate Muslims with 9/11, it is the 9/11 jihadists themselves who associate their religion with what they did. The last letters left by the 19 Muslim terrorists said the attack was in the cause of Islam and cited Allah 90 times.

"Those who seek to airbrush this terrorist attack — just as President Obama airbrushed the Fort Hood massacre by an Islamic jihadist, calling it "workplace violence" — include Rev. Chloe Breyer of the Interfaith Center of New York and daughter of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. She says the documentary should show Islam as a "peace-loving religion" and demonstrate that Muslims understand "jihad" as "the ability to wage the struggle to do good."

Canada: Islamic charity classified as terrorist group, aided Hamas for years

By Robert Spencer


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/04/canada-islamic-charity-classified-as-terrorist-group-aided-hamas-for-years


IRFAN screen grabMany Islamic charities in the United States and around the world have been shut down for funding terrorism, including what was once the largest Islamic charity in the United States, the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), as well as the Global Relief Foundation (GRF), the Benevolence International Foundation (BIF), and many others. This is because the charitable giving required of Muslims, zakat, can be given to fund jihad, a meritorious activity according to Islamic law. And the “Palestinian” jihad has a special appeal, as it is directed against the Jews, whom the Qur’an designates as the worst enemies of the Muslims (5:82).

“Aid group accused of Hamas ties put on ‘terrorist’ list, raided,” The Canadian Press, April 29, 2014 (thanks to Kenneth):

A Canadian organization that provided humanitarian aid to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza has been formally branded a terrorist group before the start of a court battle over the revocation of its charitable status.

The move came as the RCMP confirmed it had raided locations in Ontario and Quebec as part of a terrorism-financing investigation.

In a letter to the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy, the RCMP said the federal government had added the group to a list of “terrorist entities” as of April 24.

“IRFAN is now classified as a ‘terrorist group’ under Canadian law,” the letter from Supt. Stephane Bonin states.

“As a consequence, any property or asset belonging to IRFAN is now frozen.”

The letter offers no reason for the listing decision but Canada Revenue Agency has said the organization supported Hamas, itself branded as a terrorist organization.

A statement Tuesday from Public Affairs Minister Steven Blaney noted CRA’s contention — which was to be argued in court next week — that IRFAN provided aid to groups run by officials of, or who supported Hamas.

IRFAN, based in Mississauga, Ont., sent about $14.6 million in resources to “various organizations associated with Hamas” between 2005 and 2009, the statement said.

Charitable status revoked

The non-profit IRFAN was due in Federal Court of Appeal on May 6 to contest a 2011 CRA decision to revoke its charitable status because of its alleged ties to Hamas and failure to keep proper records.

No one for IRFAN was available to comment, but a lawyer speaking for the group condemned the listing as an attack on humanitarian support for Palestinians.

IRFAN did not know the terrorist listing was in the works and had no opportunity to respond or offer its side of the story, Ottawa-based lawyer Yavar Hameed said in an interview.

There’s no evidence the group did any direct funding of Hamas, he said.

“This listing happens days before we are to present arguments for the first time to the Federal Court of Appeal, so we’re very concerned about the timing with which this listing happens which completely undermines any ability for this organization to work as a charity,” Hameed said.

“On its face, we believe it is an unfair and unconstitutional decision that has been taken.”

Hameed also said the listing was a “nail in the coffin” for Canadian humanitarian support for “orphans and destitute” Palestinians and wondered if the decision was politically motivated.

Even acting for IRFAN as a lawyer puts him in a “tenuous” position because any support for the group could be seen to run afoul of the Criminal Code, he said, adding it is only the second time a Canadian domestic organization has been listed as terrorist group.

Office, residence raided by RCMP

Meanwhile, RCMP said Tuesday it had raided IRFAN’s head office in Mississauga and a residence in Quebec as part of a terrorism-financing investigation.

“An extensive amount of documentary evidence along with stored media, money and other records were seized,” police said in a statement.

RCMP offered no further details of Monday’s raids.

Blaney’s statement noted “severe penalties” are in place for those who run afoul of the listing law.

“Canada will not tolerate terrorist activities including the financing of terrorist groups,” Blaney said.

“IRFAN-Canada has knowingly financed Hamas, a listed terrorist entity, for many years.”

In revoking its charitable status that followed two audits over 10 years, CRA referred to unproven suggestions from the U.S. government that IRFAN had ties to an Hamas-linked American aid group.

It also claims IRFAN “repeatedly misrepresented its fundraising activities to the public” and that the revocation decision was fair and legal….

CAIR's Hypocrisy at American Colleges(Algemeiner) "This is all part of what CAIR sees as 'How To Get What You Want': promote what you want people to hear, censor the rest, and manipulate the law and Constitution to serve your purposes."


http://www.algemeiner.com/2014/05/01/cairs-hypocrisy-at-american-colleges/


Earlier this month, the Muslim Students Association and the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) jointly hosted a Muslim Youth Leadership symposium at George Washington University, open to all Muslims aged 14-22. No featured speakers were publicly named for the event, but the panels and workshops are listed on CAIR’s website – including the alluringly-titled, “How To Get What You Want: Politicking 101.”

It’s an appropriate topic for a CAIR event: the Hamas-linked organization is a champion at getting what it wants,” and ironically, given the nature of this event and its venue, its officials have become particularly adept of late at “getting what they want” at schools and universities. Academia, you might even say, has become CAIR’s latest target, and its newest tool – not only in its campaign to silence critics of Islam – but too, to promote and spread messages of pro-Muslim hate groups among American Muslim youth.

Best-known of CAIR’s manipulations on college campuses is its recent success in persuading Brandeis University president Frederick Lawrence to rescind his offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the controversial Somali-born women’s rights activist whose often-strident, but deeply insightful anti-Islam speeches Lawrence called “inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.”

But Brandeis was just one in a lengthening chain of such incidents. Simultaneous with the Brandeis affair, CAIR also drove Knox County, Tennessee, to revoke permission for an event scheduled at a local high school, aimed, according to its organizer, ACT! For America, at informing the public about Sharia law. In a statement, Knox County Superintendent Jim McIntyre explained his decision: “The primary purpose of our school facilities is to provide a safe, healthy and comfortable learning environment for our students. When other uses of the facility begin to impinge on or interfere with the administration’s ability to provide a suitable education atmosphere, it is necessary for us to reconsider that use.”

In response, ACT! For America observed pointedly: “Why is it that Muslims engage in teaching about how good Islam is for Tennessee at the Cedar Bluff Library – a public building – but feel ‘uncomfortable’ when ACT! For America plans an event to show the opposite viewpoint at a public building?”

What ACT! neglected to point out was the salient fact that this is not just any public building, but a school – a forum for the exchange of ideas and for learning. So important is the “freedom of expression” in schools, that even CAIR claims to champion it. Earlier this month, the organization successfully campaigned to defeat a measure that “would have restricted student groups at Maryland’s public colleges and universities from supporting boycotts of foreign countries like Israel.” While CAIR’s support for the right to boycott is valid, its reasoning is less so, focusing “protest against Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian territory and human rights abuses against Palestinians.” (Note that it does not suggest supporting boycotts “of foreign countries like Iran” or other Islamic countries where human rights abuses are endemic.)

But evidently that “free expression” has its limits, at least for CAIR, which seems to find the free exchange of some ideas a threat. Take, for example, the goings-on in Ohio, where the nice people at CAIR are demanding an investigation into the activities of Oberlin College Arabic Professor Samir Amin Abdellatif, charging him with “anti-Muslim bigotry and crude stereotypes of Muslims in his writings and on campus.”

Abdellatif gained notoriety with the (self)-publication of his treatise, The Unknown History of Islam, which CAIR claims is riddled with “outlandish conspiracy theories about the Muslim [sic] and promotes xenophobic views about Muslim immigration to the West.” Oberlin, CAIR warned the school’s president in a letter, risks “tarnishing” its reputation by keeping the tenured Abdellatif on its faculty.

But Abdellatif’s colleagues see it differently, according to a source I contacted at Oberlin. Rather, he is known for emphasizing stereotypes of all kinds in his lectures, based on the belief that all stereotypes contain a kernel of truth. “That is what he teaches,” according to my source. “So if Abdellatif’s academic thesis about stereotypes is taken out of context, I suspect it could be seen as promoting anti-Muslim bigotry and crude stereotypes.” But then, taking anything out of context can be viewed in any way one wants to twist it.

In truth, it is not Oberlin’s reputation Abdellatif stands to tarnish, but that of the school’s French Professor Ali Yedes. A Muslim, Yedes, who has been embroiled in several lawsuits involving the college, and who now stands accused of sexual harassment and of issuing death threats to fellow French professor Eunjun (Grace) An.

Ms. An is now suing the college for failing to protect her from his menace.

Yedes accused An of “betraying” him in January 2006, and informed her that “in his culture, he could have her killed because of his perceived mistreatment by her,” the lawsuit said. Abdellatif, who claims that Yedes also told him he planned to kill “an Asian French professor at Oberlin,” is a witness in her suit.

It gets more complicated. CAIR says Oberlin is also trying to fire the tenured Yedes, who serves as an adviser to the school’s Muslim Student Association (MSA) – a national group with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. And the school is counting on Abdellatif to testify against Yedes on their behalf.

Could this be why CAIR wants him gone? It is striking that an organization that claims to stand for justice and civil rights has done nothing to reprimand Professor Yedes for his alleged threats against Professor An. Or do their officials not view his statements, like Abdellatif’s, as “outlandish” misrepresentations of Islam? Do they feel it is appropriate for students to be exposed to his views (as they are alleged), but not to those of ACT! For America – or, for that matter, Samir Abdellatif?

Perhaps so. CAIR officials have never indicated concern about the well-being of students exposed to the ideas expressed by various speakers at colleges around the country, all invited by local MSA chapters – speakers such as Abdel Malik Ali, who in 2006 told an audience at Chaffey College that Zionists, not the Danes, were behind the controversial Danish cartoons that caused worldwide rioting among Muslims that year.

Nor did they seem distressed when Mohammed Al Asi also condemned Israel and the Jews at the University of California, Irvine, stating, “It’s about time we begin to open our eyes, see for ourselves, and identify this cancerous presence of the Israeli interest that has taken over the American body politic.”

But maybe this is all part of what CAIR sees as “How To Get What You Want:” promote what you want people to hear, censor the rest, and manipulate the law and Constitution to serve your purposes. However, if CAIR plans to teach Muslim youth in America that they can and should use bullying and propaganda to “get their way,” it is all the more important that we teach them otherwise. Unless we do, we’ll find that they grow up to be, like CAIR itself, far more Islamist than American. And that is a risk we can’t afford to take.

The problem with all these fine statements is that, less than two months ago, I watched Maqsud on another TV program saying the exact opposite (http://www.raymondibrahim.com/from-the-arab-world/pro-brotherhood-cleric-issues-fatwa-to-terrorize-egypt/)—very clearly calling on Brotherhood supporters in Egypt to engage in violence and terrorism.

In the video, which is still available (https://www.youtube.com/watch?sns=fb&v=s6yDuGzjMuQ), Maqsud begins by quoting the well-known hadith in Sahih Muslim wherein prophet Muhammad reportedly said that if a Muslim sees forbidden acts being committed, he should forcefully stop them, “with the hand”; if he is not capable of doing so, he should try to prevent them “with his tongue”; and if he still cannot do that, he should at least be against such acts “in his heart.”

Maqsud elaborated his point by saying that jihad must be understood in the context of capability. Because the Brotherhood and its jihadi allies are simply not capable of taking the Egyptian state head on—due to, as Maqsud bemoaned, “Egypt’s military strength and organization, advanced weaponry, and large numbers of soldiers”—all Brotherhood supporters should limit themselves only to those things they can do, namely, terrorism.

In Maqsud’s own words (around the 2-minute mark): “All that is left for us is to try to terrorize them, by burning their cars, threatening them, burning their homes, and so forth.”

And yet, as if he never uttered such plain words—on TV no less—here is Maqsud, casually talking about how he and the Brotherhood are against violence and terrorism, demonstrating, once again, how trustworthy their words are.

If Hamas-linked CAIR had denounced Boko Haram instead of trying to silence those who did, would those girls be enslaved today?

By Robert Spencer

What will history say? Peter Ingemi, DaTechGuy himself, has an intriguing answer today with specific reference to Pamela Geller and me, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), and Boko Haram, the Nigerian jihad group officially known as the Congregation of the People of the Sunnah for Dawah and Jihad: “Pam Geller and Robert Spencer as Andy Rooney,” Datechguy, May 7, 2014:

I did get to Buchenwald the next day and I stared. I stared in embarrassed silence, thinking about the doubts I’d had in college and even more recently…I’d like to have taken Professor Boulding by the hand and shown him around Buchenwald. I was angry that I’d been fooled. For the first time, I knew for certain that any peace is not better than any war.

Andy Rooney, My War 2002

There are certain things that just stick in your head, one of the things that stick into mine was one Andy Rooney 60 minutes commentary on the Death Camps.

I remember how he talked about seeing the camp himself, and how serious he was when he said: “yes it happened, I saw it”.

I couldn’t find the video online but I couldn’t help think of it when I saw this story

The Rialto school district planned to revise an eighth-grade assignment that raised red flags by asking students to consider arguments about whether the Holocaust — the systematic killing by the Nazis of some 6 million Jews and millions of others — was not an “actual event” but instead a “propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain.”

While Camp of the Saints notes an interesting twist and Ed Driscol at Instapundit notes Ike’s attempts to make them undeniable it is a lesson that no amount of fact will cause people to wish to deny or minimize a reality unfavorable to their cause from doing so.

And that brings me to Pam Geller, Robert Spencer and Boko Haram.

Pam & Robert have been sounding the call on Radical Islam for a long time Part of those warning has been about Boko Harem [sic] in fact if you do a search for Boko Harem [sic] on Geller’s site

geller1

Take a good look at that figure

geller2

That’s more than CNN, more than CBS, ABC. or MSNBC (NBC’s newly redesigned site doesn’t display numbers)

But even Pam’s figures that beat all the major news organizations pale next to the 12,000 plus results at Jihad Watch:boko jihad

For their efforts Pam & Robert are attacked as Islamophobes particularly by the Counsel [sic] on American Islamic Relations if you search their site there is no shortage of attacks on Pam or Robert as “islamophobes” who should be shunned.

boko cair spencer

If you are searching for info on Boko Haram the choices at CAIR are a tad more limited:

boko cair

Yup one result.

Perhaps if the “moderate” muslims of CAIR been speaking out about Boko Haram and not trying to silence those who did try to warn the world about them, more than a hundred young girls might not be waiting to be sold into slavery today.

HOME DEPOT allows CAIR to instruct them on how to make their stores more ‘sharia-compliant’

Another American company has taken the bait that the Muslim Brotherhood terror-linked organization CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) has cast.

Daily Roll Call (h/t Mike F) The Home Depot in Dearborn MI, was the latest victim succumbing to the demands of an organization that shouldn’t even be in existence in the United States. Once again, the questions that begs to be answered is how is this training even occurring? Since when are “religious” entities allowed to give training to corporations, albeit private, when no other religion could do the same? The following is CAIR’s announcement of its “cultural” training:

http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/cair-highlight.png

Does Home Depot believe they need to “better serve their Muslim customers”? Here in America isn’t it a practice of retail corporations to better serve ALL of its customers? What exactly does this mean? Why do corporate managers need to understand their Muslim employees any better than their Jewish and Christian employees?

In CAIR’s booklet titled “An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices” it sets demands upon employers that are seemingly outrageous and quite discriminatory to other religions. For example:

Friday is the day for congregational worship, called Jum’ah. The prayer generally takes place at a mosque during the noontime prayer and includes an address or sermon, and lasts a total of 45 to 90 minutes.

Performing the rituals of the pilgrimage may last five days during the second week of the twelfth month of the lunar calendar. However, considerable variations exist in trip arrangements, and group travel may take 10-21 days. Muslim employees may choose to make pilgrimage using vacation time.

Employers may wish to modify dress code policies so that religiously-mandated attire is addressed as a diversity issue. For example, many corporations have a policy forbidding the wearing of “hats.” This rule may be amended to exempt items such as head scarves and skullcaps.

A Muslim employee should not be asked to serve or sell religiously offensive products, such as alcoholic beverages

These so-called Muslim “accommodations” are nothing more than the forcing of American institutions to comply with a law that is completely and unequivocally antithetical to our Constitution and our laws. It is called Sharia Law, and the acceptance of the above demands is opening a dangerous door that will soon be unable to close.

In a world where Christians are being slaughtered by muslims, how can any American, let alone American Corporation blatantly ignore the travesty by embracing the enemy.

Florida Muslims already accused of jihad terror plots now also charged with assaulting federal marshals
By Robert Spencer


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/05/florida-muslims-already-accused-of-jihad-terror-plots-now-also-charged-with-assaulting-federal-marshals


Qazi brothersApparently the Qazi brothers’ jihad has not ended with their arrest and imprisonment; they still find suitable objects for the divine wrath in federal marshals. This recalls the similar ferocity of some other imprisoned jihadis, including some of those imprisoned at Guantanamo and Naser Abdo, the would-be second Fort Hood jihad mass murderer.

“Accused terrorist brothers face new charge,” by Robert Nolin, Sun Sentinel, May 9, 2014:

Two Oakland Park brothers, already accused of plotting to blow up famous New York landmarks, now face additional, less dramatic, charges: attacking federal marshals, a prosecutor said Friday at a hearing in Miami federal court.

The latest twist cost one of the brothers his attorney, and will indefinitely delay the trial of Sheheryar Alam Qazi and Raees Alam Qazi, which was originally set for November. It also stirred the judge to demand increased security in court.

The assault accusation resulted in the brothers, bearded and garbed in tan jumpsuits, remaining shackled at the waist while at the defense table. Heightened security was also in effect, with a dozen armed marshals standing guard in the courtroom.

“We are bringing additional charges … as a result of the incident on April 8,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Karen Gilbert told U.S District Judge Robert Scola.

On that date, according to court documents, the brothers “allegedly assaulted two deputy United States marshals” at a secure facility in Miami-Dade County. Officials would release no further details on the accusation because a federal grand jury is investigating the matter.

Present during the episode was Ronald Chapman, the West Palm Beach attorney for Sheheryar Qazi. Because he witnessed the alleged assault, Chapman has been subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury. He may also testify against his client at trial.

Forced into such an unusual position, Chapman withdrew from the case Friday.

“I now think that there is a conflict, and Mr. Qazi thinks there is a conflict,” Chapman told the judge. “I don’t think I can represent him.”

Scola immediately appointed William Barzee, a Miami defense attorney, as Sheheryar Qazi’s new lawyer.

Given the voluminous amount of evidence in the case, much of it secret and the result of government wiretaps, Barzee will need time to catch up. He also needs to undergo a government check for clearance to review classified material. That could take two weeks or two months, he said.

So Scola postponed until a later date the Qazis’ scheduled Nov. 3 trial. “I would like Mr. Barzee to start getting familiar with the case” he said.

Scola also called before him Amos Rojas, U.S. marshal for the Southern District of Florida, to promise he would provide adequate courtroom security, even if it means using secretly placed marshals.

“I would like some assurances from you that you will take serious measures, that everyone in the court is safe,” the judge said.

“Yes sir,” replied Rojas.

The original charges against the Qazi brothers, however, depict them as more bumbling than dangerous.

In 2011, the charges state, Raees Qazi, not yet 20, attempted to build a bomb out of Christmas lights, batteries, peroxide and a remote-controlled toy car. He was unsuccessful.

He also traveled to New York City to scout out possible bombing targets, including Times Square, Wall Street and various theaters. He used a bike on the recon mission, but ran out of money and had to return to South Florida by bus.

Sheheryar Qazi, 30, is charged with providing logistical and financial support for the plot, such as paying his younger brother’s bus fare home.

The men were caught through secret government recordings, prosecutors have said.

The pair were indicted in December 2012 on charges of conspiring to detonate a weapon of mass destruction and providing material support to terrorists.

They have been jailed without bond since….

US Muslim groups won’t move to excommunicate Boko HaramBy Robert Spencer


http://www.jihadwatch.org/2014/05/us-muslim-groups-wont-move-to-excommunicate-boko-haram


Notice that the Daily Caller’s Neil Munro repeatedly asks Muslim leaders in the U.S. to offer Islamic counter-arguments to Boko Haram’s claims for Islamic justification for its actions, and they refuse to do so. This is, as I am quoted as saying in this piece, because they can’t.

“US Muslim groups won’t move to excommunicate Boko Haram,” by Neil Munro, Daily Caller, May 12, 2014:

U.S. Islamic leaders won’t try to formally excommunicate the Islamist Boko Haram group unless they can meet with its leadership to debate the religious legitimacy of its actions, a spokesman for a leading mosque told The Daily Caller.

“There is a great reluctance to excommunicate someone by extension. … It would be like convicting someone in absentia,” said Imam Johari Abdul-Malik, the spokesman for the “Home of the Migrants” mosque, or Dar Al Hijrah mosque, in Falls Church Va. If crimes have been committed, the Nigerian government should punish the individuals, he added.

On May 7, Abdul Malik led a group of Muslim advocates at a press conference at the National Press Club, where they denied that Islamic strictures are shaping Boko Haram’s years-long campaign of killing and kidnapping Christians.

“Islam is not the problem,” said Ahmed Bedier, a Florida-based Islamic advocate. “We’re tired of people coming on television and asking where does this ideology come from,” Bedier said. “Well, this ideology comes from nowhere,” he insisted….

At his May 7 event, Abdul-Malik urged Boko Haram to change its view of Islam, even as he declined to challenge its religious claims. “Groups like Boko Haram desire to take us back to a medieval … world where kidnapping of women and girls and enslavement and rape are acceptable,” he said.

“The world has changed … [and] in particular we are saying as modern day Muslims that we now reject all of these acts and that they are contrary to our faith,” he said.

However, Abdul-Malik didn’t promise any religious or political action by U.S. Islamic groups. When pressed May 9 by The DC to cite Islamic texts that contradict Boko Haram’s Islamist arguments, Abdul-Malik quickly ended the phone call….

In a February video, Shekau justified his murder of Christians by quoting the Quran. The verse cited by Shekau, “We have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever, unless ye believe in Allah and Him alone,” is found in the fourth verse of the Quran’s 60th chapter.

“We wish to reiterate that our [jihad] is not for personal gain; it is meant to ensure the establishment of an Islamic state by liberating all Muslims from the excesses of the infidels,” the group’s spokesman, Abu Qaqa, said in 2012, according to study of the group. “We don’t kill innocent Muslims. The fact is the bottom line of our struggle is to set the Muslims free from enslavement. We only kill the unbelievers,” he said.

The Muslim groups aren’t excommunicating Shekau’s group because his Islamic claims are based on iconic Islamic texts, said Robert Spencer, the author of several best-sellers on Islamic law and traditions.

Slavery is endorsed in several sections of the Koran, where is described as “those whom your right [sword] hands possess,” he said.

The Quran is said by Muslims to be a direct transcription by Muhammad of statements by their god, Allah.

Close. Muhammad didn’t make transcriptions, according to Islamic tradition; his followers did. But in any case the Qur’an is considered to be a perfect transcription of the perfect and eternal book.

So “it is perfectly legitimate for a Muslim to capture a Christian woman and use her for sex,” Spencer said. “This is something that Mohammad did himself,” according to Islamic traditions, Spencer said.

The acid test of opposition to Shekau’s Islamic claims is whether the U.S. Islamic groups will declare that Shekau’s groups and ideas are heretical, said Spencer. But Islamic debates are very legalistic, so any attempted excommunication would require Islamic groups to cite Islamic texts before pronouncing “takfir” on Shekau and his movement, Spencer said.

TheDC asked Abdul-Malik if Americans Muslim groups would pronounce “takfir” on Boko Haram. “There is a great reluctance to excommunicate someone by extension. … It would be like convicting someone in absentia,” he replied.

The groups won’t take that step, Spencer said, because “they know Boko Haram has a perfectly good case based on the Koran … [and] they know that Muslims in their community … would be indignant towards them if they pronounce ‘takfir’ on a group that is following the Koran.”

Numerous U.S. Islamic groups contacted by TheDC declined to offer Islamic counter-arguments against Boko Haram. Instead, they merely said its actions are “unjust” and “un-Islamic.”

Shekau was trained as a Muslim cleric, according to a report by the International Crisis Group. He includes an Islamic title — imam — in his war-name, which is “Imam Abu Mohammen Abubakar bin Muhammad Shekau.” The name is also a salute to one of Islam’s earliest caliphs, Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr….

CAIR-Florida: Obfuscation, deception, and bald faced lies to unbelievers


http://www.news-journalonline.com/article/20140509/NEWS/140509451?p=1&tc=pg


DAYTONA BEACH — A Florida Islamic leader came to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to speak about peace, equality and his faith.

Instead, he was met with deep suspicion about whether his group has ties to terrorists. One man in the audience even said he cheers when Muslim women and children are killed in drone strikes.

“I think (the event) reinforced the idea that there is a lot of ignorance about Islam and that we need to educate the public to clear up misconceptions,” Hassan Shibly, executive director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Florida chapter, said Friday after participating in the final installment of this year’s Embry-Riddle’s President’s Speaker Series. Shibly’s appearance came more than two months after a discussion led by University of Central Florida Professor Jonathan Matusitz, known for his controversial views about Islam’s connections to terrorism.

After Shibly answered questions from local radio show host Marc Bernier, who moderated the discussion, audience members were given the chance to participate — which resulted in a few tense exchanges.

Daytona Beach resident Hal Butts asked Shibly why there hasn’t been more outcry from Muslims about the deaths of Jews to which Shibly responded that historically Muslims have protected Jews from being slaughtered.

“When was the last time anybody here made an outcry against the drones that have killed thousands of civilians paid for by our tax dollars?” Shibly asked.

“I cheer them every time they do it,” Butts said to gasps from people in the auditorium.

“You cheer every time they kill children and women?” Shibly asked.

“It happens,” Butts said. “Collateral damage.”

Asked by Bernier to elaborate, Butts said, “It’s a collateral damage in a war against some blood-thirsty killers. If it happens, it happens, and I’m sorry it happens. But what else are we to do?”

“That sounds just like what a Muslim extremist would say,” Shibly replied.

One woman in the audience asked if Islam condones genital mutilation, which Shibly denied. A man declared Christians who go to Islamic countries are killed if they don’t convert. Shibly rejected that claim as well.

Another man asked about ties between CAIR — which was established in 2001 as a non-profit organization to challenge stereotypes of Islam and Muslims and has a chapter in Tampa — and the Holy Land Foundation For Relief and Development, an Islamic charity that was shut down after federal authorities said members helped funnel money to terrorist organizations. Shibly said if CAIR had done anything wrong, the group would have been indicted just like the Holy Land Foundation.

http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/CAIRbusted-vi.jpg

At the opening of the discussion, Shibly talked about his family’s move from Syria to the U.S. and how he decided to become an attorney and join CAIR to help people gain a better understanding about the Islamic faith.

“Unfortunately, fear and hatred is dividing our community,” he said.

Before Matusitz’s appearance, Shibly led a protest outside Embry-Riddle’s campus and asked the school to withdraw its invitation to the UCF professor. Bernier pointed out that Matusitz never specifically mentioned Muslims during his discussion.

Shibly said he believes that’s because he and others stood up against Matusitz. He said propaganda produced by Islamophobic organizations has led to discrimination against people simply because they looked like they were Muslim. As an example, he cited a 2013 case when a Sikh, Kanwaljit Singh, was shot and injured as he drove over the Dunlawton Avenue bridge in Port Orange.

“It’s important that moderates of all faiths stand up against extremists,” Shibly said.

http://www.barenakedislam.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/cd440-text-3.jpg

After Thursday’s event, students in attendance said they were taken aback by the comments made by some of the older members of the audience. Madison Santos, 18 and who is a senior at Spruce Creek High School, was a part of an effort to keep a history textbook from being taken out of schools after locals protested that it had a chapter on the rise of Islam.

“If there’s one thing we hate overall (it’s) hate,” Santos said.

Volusia Tax Reform’s Ed Connor, who attended the event, wrote in an email to the News-Journal that he felt Shibly deflected questions about CAIR.

“Overall, I’d have to say those who entered the room with trepidation about the organization and its transparency (separate issues from belief in the faith) left the room with those concerns amplified rather than addressed,” he wrote.

Shibly said he would like to come back to Embry-Riddle and hold to a lecture to clear up any questions about Islam and CAIR. He said he spoke to several people afterward and they seemed to gain more understanding about his faith and organization.

“What I took away the most,” he said, “is that I think people are so misinformed that once we’re able to engage them I feel like we can make a positive change.”

Hamas-CAIR Goes after FBI Agent who shot Marathon Bombing Accomplice who attacked FBI Agent(s)


http://pamelageller.com/2014/05/hamas-cair-goes-fbi-agent-shot-marathon-bombing-accomplice-attacked-fbi-agents.html/


Hamas-CAIR is smearing and defaming a decorated FBI officer after failing to indict the agency after one of the Boston jihad bomber’s accomplices lunged at his FBI interrogators with a weapon and was shot and killed. After a year of smears and libel, the FBI was exonerated in the relentless CAIR public smear and libel campaign against the agency.

Now that that hasn’t worked, Hamas-CAIR is going after one of the officers involved.

Hamas-CAIR is waging jihad behalf of jihad conspirator Ibragim Todashev, the Boston marathon bombing accomplice. This devout Muslim was not just involved in the Boston Marathon bombing. He allegedly took part with the Boston bombing brothers Tsarnaev in the triple throat slashing murder of three Jewish young men on the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

CAIR loves their Jew killers.

Jihadist Todashev, a mixed martial arts fighter, flipped a coffee table in the air, knocking down the FBI agent and causing a bloody gash on the agent’s head. Todashev then ran past the two officers, into the kitchen and returned with a pole — a long metal handle of a broom or mop -- that he pointed at the Massachusetts officer, the report said.

Here’s the Hamas-CAIR presser:

CAIR-FL Seeks Probes of Newly-Revealed Troubled History of FBI Agent Who Killed Ibragim Todashev

(TAMPA, FL, 5/14/14) — The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-FL) today sent letters to the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the state attorney’s office and the FBI seeking investigations of the history of substantial allegations of official corruption, misconduct, abuse, and civil rights violations made against the FBI agent who shot and killed Ibragim Todashev.

CAIR-FL is seeking to determine why state and federal investigations failed to mention that the FBI agent who killed Todashev had a history of legal settlements and allegations against him regarding misconduct under color of law.

CAIR-FL’s letters document how the FBI agent who shot and killed Ibragim Todashev had an apparent history of serious allegations of police misconduct, including having:

falsified police reports;
lied under oath;
battered and falsely imprisoned an individual;
made false arrests;
violated the rights of suspects;
engaged in assault with a weapon;
engaged in aggravated battery.

The letter to the DOJ by CAIR-FL Executive Director Hassan Shibly stated in part:

“How do we know that the officer and FBI agent did not engage in misconduct that ultimately led to the killing of Ibragim Todashev?

“How can we trust DOJ and State Attorney investigations, that relied heavily on testimony given by individuals who may have engaged in police misconduct, civil rights abuse, and evidence falsification, are fair, accurate, and thorough, particularly when the DOJ’s and State Attorney’s investigations make no mention of the questionable history of the officer and agent involved?”

The letter to Florida State Attorney Jeffrey Ashton, who conducted an investigation into the shooting incident, also stated: ……

Ghassan Elashi, founder of CAIR’s Texas chapter, in 2009 received a 65-year prison sentence for funneling over $12 million from the Islamic charity known as the Holy Land Foundation to the jihad terrorist group Hamas, which is responsible for murdering hundreds of Israeli civilians

Mousa Abu Marzook, a former CAIR official, was in 1995 designated by the U.S. government in 1995 as a “terrorist and Hamas leader.” He now is a Hamas leader in Syria.

Randall Royer, CAIR’s former civil rights coordinator, in 2004 began serving a 20-year prison sentence for aiding al-Qaida and the Taliban against American troops in Afghanistan and recruiting for Lashkar e-Taiba, the jihadist group responsible for the 2008 Mumbai jihad massacres.

Bassem Khafagi, CAIR’s former community relations director, was arrested for involvement with the Islamic Assembly of North America, which was linked to al-Qaida. After pleading guilty to visa and bank fraud charges, Khafagi was deported.

Rabih Haddad, a former CAIR fundraiser, was deported for his work with the Global Relief Foundation (which he co-founded), a terror-financing organization.

http://www.investigativeproject.org/pics/795_large.jpg


A full-page ad -http://www.investigativeproject.org/full-page_nytimes-ad_20140521.php by the Investigative Project on Terrorism in Wednesday's New York Times, followed by a prominent ad Thursday on the Times' website, is generating attention and controversy.

That's no surprise.

The ad called for the end of a prohibition on references to jihad and radical Islam in government publications and programs. It cited several examples of terrorist attacks motivated by radical Islamist ideology, and showed how organized groups try to bully anyone who calls attention to the connection. To do so, they argue, is inherently bigoted and blames all Muslims for the actions of a relative few.

Those critical of the ad cast it as anti-Muslim and Islamophobic.

That, too, is no surprise. If anything, it reinforces the ad's message.

The ad contained no critical statements about Islam, and it did not blame the vast majority of Muslims who do not engage in violence.

For specifically calling out Islamist groups which try to stifle debate, the Religion News Service called the IPT - http://www.religionnews.com/2014/05/21/muslim-anti-muslim-groups-go-war-bus-print-ads/ an anti-Muslim group in a headline. The service's stories are picked up - http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/religion/muslim-and-anti-muslim-groups-go-to-war-in-bus-print-ads/2014/05/21/ad062448-e114-11e3-9442-54189bf1a809_story.html on the Washington Post website, dramatically expanding their reach and influence.

The judgmental label is appropriate for a news story, RNS Editor-in-Chief Kevin Eckstrom wrote in response to a complaint from the IPT, even though the original IPT ad reserved special praise for "courageous Muslim voices who dare criticize radical Islam."

"We believe the IPT ad speaks for itself, and we quoted from it," Eckstrom wrote. He saw no problem with reporter Cathy Lynn Grossman's failure to contact the IPT seeking comment for her story, which again, cast the organization as "anti-Muslim."

But Grossman did turn to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), specifically mentioned in the ad as one of the groups trying to bully opponents into silence. The ongoing "Islamophobia industry that seeks to blame Islam for any violence or terrorism anywhere in the world," a spokesman said. The goal of such ads, he said, is to "demonize Islam and marginalize American Muslims."

No. The goal of the ad was to trigger a debate about acknowledging the role radical Islam plays in fueling terrorism in the United States and throughout the world. The terrorists themselves acknowledge this fact, but everyone else is supposed to pretend it doesn't exist.

The ad is judged without giving IPT a chance to respond. CAIR's claim that the ad's focus on radical Islam, and its praise for reformist Muslim voices, is part of an "Islamophobia industry" goes unchallenged.

The ad quotes Grossman's source, Ibrahim Hooper, denying radical Islam plays a factor in Boko Haram's campaign of brutality and horror in Nigeria, even though the terrorist group's leaders repeatedly say otherwise. "And we're tired of people coming on television and examining, 'Well, where does this ideology come from?' This ideology comes from nowhere," Hooper said.

If Grossman asked Hooper how that's true, or anything more than wishful thinking, her story never addresses the substance.

"I know IPT and CAIR have a long-running dispute," Eckstrom wrote, "but I'm not going to get involved in the middle of that fight. Just as you would not agree that you're 'anti-Muslim,' they would not agree with IPT's characterization of them as terrorist sympathizers. Again, that's not a fight I'm going to step into the middle of."

So much for a journalist's commitment to fact-finding. When the IPT writes that CAIR was founded as part of a Hamas-support network in the United States, it cites the official assessment of the FBI - http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/misc/265.pdf, reinforced by a written opinion (http://www.investigativeproject.org/documents/case_docs/1425.pdf#page=7 ) from a federa
