Arrow Tariq Ramadan and the Three Public Faces of Islam

Tariq Ramadan and the Three Public Faces of Islam
There is little understanding in the West of the stealth jihad pursued by the Muslim Brotherhood.
April 14, 2010 - by David Solway
One portrays Islam as a violent and predatory religious force seeking to overthrow the West by fire and sword. The standard bearers of this version are the orthodontic disasters we see in the media from time to time, screaming into the camera, hoisting placards promising death to America and setting bonfires in which American, British, and Israeli flags are reduced to char.

Another and more heraldic image depicts Islam as a noble and courageous faith, born in the harshest of environments, which it overcomes through the exercise of the manly virtues and a sense of heroic style mediated by the romantic aura of the flowing galabieh, a revered tradition, and elegant rituals of hospitality. We see this fetishizing of the Arab and his faith at its most flamboyant in T.E. Lawrence’s Seven Pillars of Wisdom, and at its most insidious in Robert Kaplan’s The Arabists.

The third and perhaps most pervasive mental icon of the faith today is that of a socially and spiritually liberating institution whose ancient pedigree is not only capable of doctrinal flexibility and modernization but offers a vision of stability and assurance in an increasingly chaotic world. The most conspicuous representative of this perception of Islam is Tariq Ramadan, an erudite, supple, and persuasive Western-tailored “intellectual” whose soothing rhetoric operates as an ideological narcotic. For in reality he is the most deceptive and oleaginous of Islam’s new breed of warrior, who penetrates our defenses from beneath our historical ramparts. In the words of French social critic Caroline Fourest, from her La tentation obscurantiste, “Tariq Ramadan est devenu un virtuose du désamorçage rhétorique et sémantique.” (“Tariq Ramadan has become a virtuoso of rhetorical and semantic defusing” — in the sense of downplaying a crisis.)

Ramadan’s grandfather Hassan al-Banna was the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. His father Said founded the World Islamic League and later established the Islamic Center of Geneva, whose function was to bring Islam to the West. His brother Hani chairs the board. As Robert Sibley writes in the Ottawa Citizen, “Normally, you don’t hold a man’s family against him. In Ramadan’s case, however, it is permissible because he makes so much of his heritage.” And this heritage encloses within its core the central principle of the grandfather, who believed, as Nick Cohen puts it in What’s Left?, that “only a restored and pure Islamic Caliphate could end the humiliation of the Arabs.” Al-Banna then organized “his followers into ‘falanges’ modeled on General Franco’s, and admiring Hitler’s brown shirts.”

The crucial element in this campaign against the cultural integrity and, indeed, the ultimate survival of the West is the subterranean agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood, which since its formation in the Egyptian city of Ismailia in 1928, has been at the source of internecine violence, assassinating two prime ministers, Mahmoud Fahmi Nokrashi and Anwar Sadat — in the latter case, via its offshoot Islamic Jihad, despite its verbal renunciation of violence in 1970. The Brotherhood’s emblem is a Koran with crossed swords. In an interview reported by the Middle East Research Institute (MEMRI), in the organization’s General Guide, Muhammad Mahdi Akef, who resigned in 2010 (to be replaced by the equally hard-core Muhammad Badee), affirmed that “the movement supports martyrdom operations in Palestine and Iraq in order to expel the Zionists and the Americans.”

Those who try to launder the Brotherhood’s infusorial project might be advised to study its 1991 memorandum, the “General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” which proposed a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” and stated that Muslims “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.”

The Brotherhood recommends different modalities of action: violence where effective, infiltration where appropriate. In the first case, one need only consult well-attested reports of a document called “The Project,” discovered in the home of Youssef Nada, director of the Al-Taqwa Bank in Lugano, Switzerland, which recommended a revival of terrorist activities and announced the 1987 creation of Hamas. A recent book by Azzam Tamini, a London-based member of the organization, entitled Hamas: A History, is replete with pertinent details showing the connection between the Brotherhood and Hamas. Indeed, Hamas was once known as the Gaza Branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Hamas Covenant, or Mithaq, itself states that “the Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine” and that the Brotherhood is characterized by “its complete embrace of all Islamic concepts of all aspects of life … and conversion to Islam.”

In the second case, the Brotherhood has become expert at what we might call a new variety of ideological phishing, hacking into the majority culture with a view to gaining control of its “operating programs.” Here it does not state its goals openly, practicing the time-honored strategy of taqiyyah, deriving from Koranic surahs 16:106 and 3:28; that is, the dissimulation of one’s true beliefs and convictions in times of peril. What constitutes a time of peril clearly allows for considerable latitude of interpretation.
There seems to be little understanding in the West of the stealth jihad pursued by the Muslim Brotherhood and its multiple offshoots, exemplified by the svelte ruminations of Western-seeming Islamic intellectuals such as Tariq Ramadan who work like sappers beneath a mantlet of calming assurances and exquisite manners. In entertaining such cultural underminers as Ramadan, we have simply moved the adversary’s clock forward. This form of continental drift, both theological and demographic, should no longer come as a great surprise. Ottoman thinker Said Nursi prophesied nearly a century ago, in his famous Damascus Sermon, that “Europe and America are pregnant with Islam. One day they will give birth to an Islamic state.” Nursi dedicated himself to reviving a slumbering and decadent Islamic world, projecting his vision of hope and change for the future.

Nursi’s writings repay consulting, if only because they prefigure the themes addressed by Ramadan. Nursi believed that, in the course of time, Christianity, “following the Qur’an … will unite with Islam.” Confirming Nursi’s prophecy, in a BBC interview on February 7, 2008, Anglican primate Rowan Williams argued in favor of recognizing certain aspects of shari’a law, which in any case “seems unavoidable,” and that Muslims should not have to choose between “the stark alternatives of cultural loyalty or state loyalty.” The capitulation is well advanced.

For Ramadan, Islam will, amoeba-like, absorb the West. Given our Pavlovian response to the muezzin’s call, we are making the job all the easier by our apparent agreement and practical collaboration. It has become an Islam dunk. What is now happening in Europe and America is the movement of the future and a tragic denouement to a play that has lost its direction and raison d’être. A “new” and far more vigorous historical force is gradually but inexorably replacing a tired, self-indulgent, and oblivious civilization that appears — to use Arnold Toynbee’s formulation — to have no response to the challenge which confronts it. And the challenge is most effectively posed by the ophidian subtlety of de facto spokesmen for the Muslim Brotherhood such as Tariq Ramadan.

As Arabist Eric Ormsby writes in Standpoint, reviewing Ramadan’s Radical Reform: Islamic Ethics and Liberation:
To make matters worse, more than once in Radical Reform, he respectfully cites the infamous Yusuf al-Qaradawi … who issued the fatwa to Hamas legitimating suicide bombing. For all his emollient slogans, Ramadan remains the grandson of Hassan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, and the son and brother of two of that movement’s most virulent ideologues. With Ramadan, one always has the uneasy sense that ‘the hard men’ are standing nearby, in the shadows of his suavity.
Ramadan has revived the project of his grandfather, but with a twist. His “falanges” are lieutenants like his Swiss compatriot Salah Basalama, double-jointed propagandists wearing not brown shirts but Brunello Cucinelli lavender luster. We should make no mistake about this: they are carrying out the same agenda. And the “hard men” in keffiyehs are waiting patiently in the wings.

Exclamation Eternal Islamic Enmity Toward the Jews

Eternal Islamic Enmity Toward the Jews
Al-Yahud: Eternal Islamic Enmity & The Jews
By Elias Al-Maqdisi and Sam Solomon


Islam is the only major religion in the world that does not adhere to the Golden Rule to "love they neighbor as thyself" or "do unto others what you would have others do unto you." Instead, the Koran exhorts Muslim to "slay the unbelievers wherever they find them," "not take non-Muslims for friends" and "when ye meet unbelievers, smite at their necks." Mohammed, whose very actions define morality for Muslims, encouraged his followers to deceive kuffars, or non-believers. Islamic doctrine explicitly supports the killing, insulting, torturing, robbing, beheading, enslaving, pillorying, and raping of non-Muslims.

A "Doctrine of Enmity" toward non-Muslims is part and parcel of Islamic practice and belief, with the greatest wrath reserved for the Jews as punishment for their refusal to recognize Mohammed as the final prophet.

In their latest book, Al-Yahud: Eternal Islamic Enmity & the Jews, authors Elias Al-Maqdisi, an expert on Islamic teachings, and Sam Solomon, a former professor of shari'ah law and Christian convert, examine the historical and doctrinal sources of Muslim enmity and the continuing jihad against the Jews and Israel. The work follows their previous book, Modern Day Trojan Horse: The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration, in which they explain how the hijra (migration) and jihad function today to further worldwide Islamic conquest.

Their important new book exposes the story behind the Palestinian "crisis," giving readers new insights into the perceptions and actions of the Arab-Muslim world vis-à-vis Israel, popularly maligned as the "Zionist entity." Al-Maqdisi and Solomon, both raised as Muslims, reveal the truth about the doctrinal foundation of a conflict engineered for Muslim dominance.

The authors detail how, five times daily, observant Muslims worldwide condemn all non-believers in ritual prayers, singling out Jews and Christians. Muslim students readily identify Jews and Christians respectively as "those against whom there is wrath" and "those who are astray," phrases found in the Koran's opening Sura (chapter). This veiled cursing of non-believers has occurred for 1,400 years, even amidst duplicitous attempts to appear conciliatory and engage in interfaith dialogue.

Muslim enmity toward Jews is a special, more extreme case than that against other non-believers, Al-Maqdisi and Solomon argue. The dispute with Israel has a religious and moral basis rather than a territorial one. So its presentation as a solvable political crisis over land claims is little more than a smokescreen for an intrinsic, unending jihad against the Jews. The authors draw parallels between Muslim displacement of Arab Jews from Iran, Egypt, the Sudan, Morocco, and Syria in the last century and similar threats facing Jewish (and Christian) populations today in Europe and the Middle East.

In Al-Yahud, the authors reveal how Israel is systematically discredited by the alleged Israeli victimization of Muslim-Palestinians. The so-called Arab-Israeli conflict provides a flash point and platform to advance Islam under cover of a struggle for statehood and "restoration" of "stolen" land. These issues are cloaked in the vernacular of a desperate human rights tragedy; yet, the authors observe, all aid to Arab-Palestinians comes from the non-Muslim world. Fellow Muslims fail to lift a finger to aid their "victimized" brethren. They sabotage efforts to alleviate Palestinian suffering by refusing to accept Palestinians as citizens elsewhere in the Arab world.

While Israelis are denounced as "occupiers" and history is rewritten to deny more than four thousand years of Jewish presence in the land, the reality of terrorist and rocket attacks by Hezb'allah, Hamas, al-Qaeda, and Iran are largely ignored. The conflict is presented to the West in terms of Israel's recent actions -- the 1948 "occupation," 1967 "expansion," West Bank wall, and "settlement expansion." Recognition of relentless, decades-long Arab attacks on Israel, Jewish rights to the land, and legitimate national security measures of a sovereign state are all ignored or denied. Academia and the media willingly participate in the deconstruction of Israel and the legitimization of "Palestine." So the issue appears to outsiders to be over land, when in reality, the present-day enmity toward Israel is based on the Koran's 7th-century doctrines against the Jews. Modern-day Muslims are seeking to enforce this mandate of the Koran, according to Al-Maqdisi and Solomon.

The authors clarify that expelling Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula is a religious obligation for Muslims. In Sahih Al Muslim, Hadith #3313 -- one of six collections of the Islamic prophet Mohammed's words and deeds -- Allah says, "I will expel Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula until there is none but Muslims in it." As an example of how this religious obligation is translated into modern-day action, the authors cite Al-Qaradawi, one of the most influential Sunni Islamic clerics and the ideological leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, who recently stated, "... and it is a duty of the faithful to obey Allah and his apostle and liquidate the enemies of Allah and, in particular, ... who else but the Jews?" Further, the authors state that Al-Qaradawi justifies Arab-Palestinian suicide bombing of innocent Israelis as a legitimate response to Zionist "occupation."

Al-Maqdisi and Solomon explain that no man has the power to override Allah and that Islamic doctrine is permanent and immutable. So there is no way out of the predicament but annihilation of the Jewish state. In other words, even if the Arab-Palestinian land crisis were "solved," jihad would not cease because it is an Islamic duty to completely destroy the Jews. Besides, treaties with non-Muslims -- even peace treaties -- are invalid over time and contrary to Islam. This is exemplified in the Sura which chronicles Mohammed's deception, when, in a weak military and political position, he accepted the Jewish tribes of Medina, only to terrorize, murder, and behead them when his fortunes changed.

Mohammed's atrocities toward the Jews established the precedent for the Sunnah, requiring Muslims to emulate his hatred and enmity toward them everywhere for all time and without exception. The present-day enmity toward Israel is based on the Jews' refusal to accept Islam, their failure to recognize the supremacy of Mohammed, and their misleading of other non-Muslims regarding the final seal of the prophet (or last prophet). Muslims solidify their claim to Jerusalem through the "Night Vision" or Al-Isra' wal Mi 'raaj in the Koran. Although Mohammed never visited Jerusalem, he reportedly was transported in a vision on a winged steed by the angel Gabriel to the "farthest mosque" and led Abraham, Moses, and Jesus in Muslim prayer. According to Muslim belief, in this act, Mohammed declared himself the last prophet, supreme over all mankind. With this verse, Muslims lay a retroactive claim to Jerusalem.

Despite Mohammed's persistence in persuading the Jews that he was the messiah referred to in their scriptures, the Jews ridiculed him and refused to recognize him as such. This refusal intensified his desire to conquer them and take all their land and possessions. Using this verse, Muslims believe that all of Israel belongs to them and that this indisputable proclamation in the Koran is not subject to negotiation. They are commanded by Allah to fight for Israel, or Islamic land known as "Waqf," until it is fully "regained" and thoroughly Muslim.

In Al-Yahud, Maqdisi and Solomon refer to another doctrine, the Fitrah Doctrine, which Muslims also use to establish present-day land claims. The Fitrah Doctrine proclaims that all mankind from eternity is Muslim. The proclamation is irrevocable and mandatory and labels anyone who is not in observance of it as having gone astray. Jews in particular are viewed as perverted, and they are purported to be followers of the path of Satan for their refusal to recognize the Prophet Mohammed even though being forewarned in the Jewish scriptures.

These proclamations and doctrines help bolster Islamic attitudes in which any perceived criticisms of Islam or the very existence of non-Muslims within a Muslim society is viewed as an attack against Islam. Non-Muslims, simply by their religious choices, are resisting Allah. Thus, kuffars are considered to be in rebellion and must be "returned" to their Muslim faith by "reversion" or by force (jihad). Jihad is always viewed by practicing Muslims as a defensive move against unbelievers for rejecting Islam. Thus, by their deaths, Islamic martyrs receive exalted status, celebrations, and rewards, having gained favor with Allah.

Lamentably but realistically, the authors conclude that there is no Arab-Palestinian-Israeli conflict, but instead, a Muslim-Jewish conflict that dates from the time of Mohammed. They demonstrate through well-researched and extensive citations of passages from Islamic doctrine how the policies of enmity and supremacy have their origin in the Koran and Sunnah, and not in the present-day situation in Israel and the Palestinian territories. They clearly illustrate that throughout Islamic history, treaties with infidels have been employed as temporary deceptive measures to be broken at an advantageous time, in accordance with Allah's instructions and commandments. Al-Maqdisi and Solomon discouragingly surmise that any Israeli attempts to forge land or peace treaties with Muslims are destined for failure, as has been repeatedly illustrated since Israeli statehood.

Arrow What the Associated Press won't tell you about why the Chicago mass murder said

See No Qur’an, Hear No Qur’an
What the Associated Press won't tell you about why the Chicago mass murder said he started to kill
by Robert Spencer



What’s that? The “gunman” was a Muslim? He said something about the Qur’an? Surely not! None of that is in the AP story, which is an object lesson in journalistic bias and obfuscation: “Source: Chicago gunman heard voices to kill family,” by Don Babwin for Associated Press, April 14:
CHICAGO – A person close to the investigation of a shooting in Chicago that left a woman and three children dead says the gunman told police that he committed the crime after hearing voices telling him to kill his family.
Compare that to the Chicago Tribune story I discussed here. It says that “the man had converted to Islam several years ago while serving time in prison and had a dispute with his wife — one of the victims — because she would not adhere to his faith. He told police that he needed to take his family back to Allah and out of this world of sinners, a source said….The wife’s sister, Shirina Thompson, said the suspect had been talking about “going to Allah.” Both Thompson and a neighbor in Wisconsin said the man had fought with his wife in recent days because she refused to wear Muslim garb….Letisha Larry, one of the suspect’s sisters, said her brother had been acting strange, carrying around the Quran and telling family members that something in the book told him to kill someone.”

But AP has none of that. He was just “hearing voices.”

This is one of the reasons why we always post at Jihad Watch the names of the reporters who write the stories. These whole process of news gathering and news reporting needs to be demystified, even in this Internet age, and news reports recognized not as objective, dispassionate accounts, but as the work of human beings with agendas. While it is possible that Kristen Schorsch, Annie Sweeney and Cynthia Dizikes of the Tribune are simply better, more thorough reporters than Don Babwin of AP, it is more likely that Babwin had access to exactly the same information that showed up in the Tribune report, but chose not to go with it.

He probably thought it would be “Islamophobic” to do so, or that to do so would fuel one of those fabled but nonexistent “backlashes” against innocent Muslims. So he probably decided it was better to cover up key facts about this incident. And the thing is, Don Babwin is no worse a journalist than thousands of others working today. He was just doing what they all do, in large and small ways, every day.

To expose them as they do this, and to inform you about what is really going on, is one of the main reasons why Jihad Watch exists.

Arrow NC Islamic Center is proud to be associated with unindicted co-conspirators





Tied to the largest Islamic terrorism financing case in U.S. history, the Islamic Center of Charlotte, NC receives threats. And we should be concerned with this because WHY?

The Islamic Center’s property is owned by the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) — an un-indicted co-conspirator in the federal terror case.
When we first asked the head of the Islamic Center, Jibril Hough, about all this in February, he said yes, NAIT owns their property, but he said he did not know the Feds had flagged the organization. Hough said he was concerned enough to take it to his board. Today, he announced he did that, and they decided not to dissociate.

“They’re not guilty of anything so it’s not something that we should immediately move on to separate yourself from,” Hough says.

What the Islamic Center is moving on is this: “Our government’s shameless public identification of the un-indicted co-conspirator list,” says Izzat Saymeh, outreach coordinator at The Center.

“It’s a label used to fear and smear and discredit you,” says Hough.

The Center says the government slapped the label on NAIT in a McCarthyistic move.The Center says its association to an organization tarnished by the U-S government is causing trouble for them.

“Two days ago we had an attempted break-in here,” Hough says, adding that they’ve also received threatening emails. We asked to see…as of airtime, we haven’t received them. ”A lot of it is saying they’ll be watching us. If FBI and law enforcement is not watching us, they’ll be watching us,” Hough explained.

Arrow Ohio: Muslim arrested after AK 47s, semiautomatic rifle, 1,000 pounds of ammo, bombs

Ohio: Muslim arrested after AK 47s, semiautomatic rifle, 1,000 pounds of ammo, pipe bomb materials found in home




Abdullah Muhammad Muslim, the former Johnnie Clagg


No doubt Abdullah Muhammad Muslim intended to fashion pipe bombs of peace.

Columbus, Ohio -- I wonder if Abdullah Muhammad Muslim goes to the mosque whose members informed Rifqa Bary's parents that she had converted to Christianity. In any case, note that he is yet another prison convert.

"Man Faces Gun Charges After Cache Of Weapons Found," from 10TVNews.com, April 16 (thanks to D. C. Watson):
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Federal officials said on Friday that a large amount of weapons were found at the home of a man who allegedly stole the identity of someone bound to a wheelchair and suffering from cerebral palsy, and used it to try to flee the country.

Abdullah Mohammed Muslim, formerly known as Johnnie Clagg, faces felony gun charges, 10TV's Andy Hirsch reported.

Muslim, 38, allegedly stole personal information from people and tired to use it to get a passport to leave the country.

Police stopped Muslim's vehicle on the city's southwest side in October. He was wanted on charges of identity theft and trying to falsify a passport.

After being arrested, federal agents went to his home and said they found an ****nal inside, Hirsch reported.

Investigators said they found two AK 47s, a 9mm semiautomatic rifle and more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, pipe bomb materials, a ballistic face mask and vest, and a flak jacket.

Muslim's attorney said his client traveled from Columbus to tribal areas of Pakistan and that he converted to Islam while spending time in prison.

He said his client has no ties to any terror organizations.

Federal authorities agreed, saying this was not a case of terrorism...
Of course not! It never is -- not even when a Muslim shouting "Allahu akbar" mows down thirteen Americans at Fort Hood!

Exclamation Chicago: Muslim who murdered family on orders from "Allah" now the victim, "suffering

Chicago: Muslim who murdered family on orders from "Allah" now the victim, "suffering greatly" in jail



This Chicago Sun-Times story, after being more honest than AP by noting that Larry killed all these people because he believed he had some responsibility before Allah to do so, makes sure to include the standard disclaimer from a local Muslim group -- the kind of thing that is usually as a matter of course appended to any story about a Muslim committing violence in the name of Islam: Islam condemns, Islam forbids, Islam is peace, etc. etc. etc.

The sheer pro-forma aspect of such disclaimers, and their frequent employ, ought to give some people pause. But it doesn't. In any case, it is here once again disingenuous. James Larry murdered his family, according to this Chicago Tribune report, after complaining that his wife was not behaving according to Islamic standards, and saying that the Qur'an was telling him to kill (which it certainly does do -- see 2:191, 4:89, 9:5, 9:29, 47:4, etc.). Now, honor killing, which is also the subject of a blizzard of Islamic disclaimers whenever it appears in the news, is nonetheless relatively common in many Muslim countries, and is effectively encouraged by the fact that honor murderers often are given lighter sentences than other murderers.

Syria recently scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but "the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour 'provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.'"

That's right: two years for murder!

In 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings. Al-Jazeera reported that "Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values."

And a manual of Islamic law certified as a reliable guide to Sunni orthodoxy by Al-Azhar University, the most respected authority in Sunni Islam, says that "retaliation is obligatory against anyone who kills a human being purely intentionally and without right." However, "not subject to retaliation" is "a father or mother (or their fathers or mothers) for killing their offspring, or offspring's offspring." ('Umdat al-Salik o1.1-2).

In other words, someone who kills his child incurs no legal penalty under Islamic law.

That's why these honor killings keep happening -- because they are broadly tolerated, even encouraged, by Islamic teachings and attitudes. Yet no authorities are calling Islamic leaders to account for this. But in light of all this, James Larry ought not to be dismissed as a simple madman, and the Islamic community let off with the standard "Islam condemns, Islam forbids" disclaimer. Instead, there ought to be a serious public discussion about how the texts and teachings of Islam are used by Islamic jihadists to justify violence, and how they can be and are used even by violent creepy lunatics like James Larry to justify wanton slaughter. Only then can any effective steps be taken to try to prevent future murders like these.

But nothing like that is going to be done. Even to suggest that it should be done is "Islamophobic." And so instead, more people will be murdered in the future the way James Larry's family was murdered.

"Murder suspect 'suffering greatly,' his lawyer says: Bail denied Wisconsin man accused of killing 4 in his family," by Rummana Hussain for the Chicago Sun-Times, April 17:
The Wisconsin man charged with killing four family members and seriously injuring two other relatives in a hail of bullets as they slept at his sister's Marquette Park home suffers from a "multitude" of mental health illnesses, his attorney said Friday.

James Larry, a 32-year-old Muslim convert who allegedly told authorities he was ordered by "Allah" to carry out the carnage, has been under doctors' care since 2002 and recently received psychiatric treatment in Janesville, Wis., said Julie Koehler, an assistant Cook County public defender.

Koehler said Larry was crying, his head bowed, when prosecutors detailed how he allegedly killed his pregnant wife, Twanda Thompson, 19; son, Jihad, 7 months, pregnant niece Keyshai Fields, 16, and 3-year-old Keleasha Larry, another niece.

"He is suffering greatly," Koehler said, after Judge Peggy Chiampas ordered Larry held without bond.

Larry also shot his 57-year-old mother, Leona Larry, and a nephew Demond Larry, 13, before dawn Wednesday. Both remain in critical condition, Assistant State's Attorney Jamie Santini said.

The body count could have been worse, Santini added. He said Torino Hill, a 35-year-old man living in the home's basement, was spared when James Larry's gun jammed and another niece, 12, escaped injury when she ran down the street and called police....

James Larry, who has a lengthy criminal record, admitted his role in the shooting spree, told detectives he knew his wife and 16-year-old niece were pregnant and even led police to the 9mm handgun he allegedly used in the shooting, Santini said.

"That's not the lot, turn left. It's the first vacant lot off the alley on the left," Larry directed officers, according to a police report.

James Larry also allegedly told officers he wished he "had more bullets."

"I wish I had more bullets. Kill me. I threw the gun in a vacant lot by the police station. I'll show you," James Larry said, according to the report.

A relative said that when James Larry looked to the sky and didn't see the moon or the sun before dawn Wednesday, "that meant Allah told him to take his family."

On Friday, several local Muslim leaders and organizations denounced the murders and stressed that the Islamic faith should not be associated with the tragedy.

James Larry's sister Keshai -- the mother of three victims, including the two dead girls -- joined Inner-City Muslim Action Network members and Jewish and Christian leaders later in the afternoon to show solidarity with the religious groups, IMAN's executive director Rami Nashashibi said.

For years, the Marquette Park-based IMAN has been involved in many anti-violence efforts in the neighborhood and is taking an active role in assisting the victims, Nashashibi said.

"We find this type of horrific violence absolutely incompatible with any understanding or any expression of Islam," he said.

Arrow The SAME DAY

The same day that burqa-clad suicide bombers murder 41 in Pakistan, Quebec Muslim women protest ban on face coverings



Somebody opposes the niqab ban


Irony. "Bill discriminates against Muslims: protesters," from CBC News, April 18:
About 60 women, a third donning the Muslim veil, demonstrated Saturday in front of Montreal City Hall and demanded the province scrap legislation that would require anyone receiving public services to show their face.

Bill 94 was proposed last month amid Quebec's public debate over how far governments should go to accommodate religious customs.

Government officials have said the bill is a solution to the need to balance individual freedoms with the values of Quebec society, including the equality between men and women and secular public institutions.

But protesters described the legislation as being discriminatory....

One woman who declined to give her name also wore the niqab as she watched the protest. She said Bill 94 is not fair.
"I personally would never attend university if they tell me to take off my niqab, so, they're making me become illiterate," she said.
No. You are. Nothing is requiring you to live in Quebec. Nothing is requiring to bend to your will.
Immigration Minister Yolande James said the government is promoting secularism.

"What we do say is services are being rendered and to participate, that your face is to be uncovered," she told CBC News....

Lightbulb Pakistani prosecutor: U.S. jihadis contacted Al-Qaeda top dog

Pakistani prosecutor:
U.S. jihadis contacted Al-Qaeda top dog



"Akhtar has been arrested twice before - in the United Arab Emirates in 2004 and by Pakistani authorities in 2008 - but released each time for unknown reasons." Now, that's interesting. Surely he wasn't released because authorities in the U.A.E. and Pakistan were sympathetic to jihad -- naah, that couldn't be it. An update on this story. "American suspects linked to militants: prosecutor," from AP, April 17:
ISLAMABAD: The Pakistani government presented evidence in court Saturday that allegedly showed contacts between five detained Americans and a reputed al-Qaeda-linked militant leader, revealing the leader's identity for the first time, a prosecutor said.

The northern Virginia men are on trial charged with planning terrorist attacks in Pakistan and conspiring to wage war against nations allied with it. They deny any wrongdoing.

But prosecutors say they made contact with Qari Saifullah Akhtar, the leader of the Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami militant network, which is believed to have extensive contacts with al-Qaeda and the Taliban. Formed in the 1980s, it recruited militants from the Punjab province to fight in Afghanistan and later Kashmir in operations supported by Pakistani security forces.

Akhtar has been arrested twice before - in the United Arab Emirates in 2004 and by Pakistani authorities in 2008 - but released each time for unknown reasons. At the time of his arrest in 2008, he was publicly accused of involvement in a failed attack on former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto in 2007.

Prosecutor Nadeem Akram said the evidence produced Saturday at the court includes documents, phone call logs and retrieved e-mails. The court sessions are taking place behind closed doors in a high security prison in Sargodha.

The Americans, all in their late teens or early 20s, were arrested in December in Sargodha, a city in Punjab province. They were reported missing by their families in November after one left behind a farewell video showing scenes of war and casualties and saying Muslims must be defended....

Arrow Spencer: Whitewashing Koran-Inspired Murders In Chicago

Spencer: Whitewashing Koran-Inspired Murders In Chicago
In Human Events this morning I discuss more media bias:
Prosecutors in Cook County said Friday that James Larry, a Chicago Muslim, has confessed to brutally murdering his wife, his seven-month old son Jihad, and two of his nieces.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Larry was a prison convert to Islam who had been arguing with his wife over her refusal to become a Muslim and wear Islamic clothing. His sister revealed that he had been clutching a copy of the Koran and telling relatives that "something in the book told him to kill someone."

Were James Larry a Christian, his murders would be front-page headlines, and talking heads on all the networks would be discussing in hushed tones the dangers of Christian fundamentalism, complete with clips of Robert DeNiro as the Scripture-addled maniacal killer in Cape Fear, or any number of hundreds of other Hollywood fantasies about violent Christian fanatics.

But James Larry is a Muslim, and so true to form, outside of the Tribune and a handful of other sources, mainstream media coverage ignored the story altogether or, at very least, did not deem fit to print or mention all the inconvenient evidence that he was motivated to kill at least in part by such Koranic exhortations as "kill the polytheists wherever you find them" (9:5). The Associated Press story on the murders has none of that. According to AP, Larry was just "hearing voices."
The whole process of news gathering and news reporting needs to be demystified, even in this Internet age, and news reports recognized not as objective, dispassionate accounts, but as the work of human beings with agendas. While it is possible that Kristen Schorsch, Annie Sweeney and Cynthia Dizikes, the authors of the Chicago Tribune story, are simply better, more thorough reporters than Don Babwin of AP, it is more likely that Babwin had access to exactly the same information that showed up in the Tribune report, but chose not to go with it.

He probably thought it would be "Islamophobic" to do so, or that to do so would fuel one of those fabled but nonexistent "backlashes" against innocent Muslims. So he appears to have decided that it was better to cover up key facts about this incident....

Arrow Islamists Seeking 'White Jihadists

Islamists Seeking 'White Jihadists



CAIRO — Al Qaeda and its ideological allies are using English-language Web sites and forums to encourage non-Arabic speakers to make war on the West as terrorists seek the next Fort Hood shooters and “Jihad Janes.”

Their goal to widen the pool of prospective terrorists beyond traditional Middle Eastern and Asian sources is part of a search for “white Al Qaeda” activists who could foil racial profiling and initiate attacks, according to Evan Kohlmann, a consultant with FlashPoint Partners, a security research company based in New York. The effort is consistent with the gradual decentralization of Islamic-inspired holy war, he said in a telephone interview.

“It’s a way Al Qaeda can say, ‘You don’t have to speak Arabic or Pashtun or come to Pakistan for training; you just have to be committed, and go out and kill people,”’ Mr. Kohlmann said.

Appeals for nonmembers to carry out small-scale attacks are a departure for Al Qaeda, the global terrorist network headed by Osama bin Laden. It maintained centralized command and training for many years, masterminding the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. After that, it pledged to trump the mass killing with even more spectacular assaults.

As the United States kept up pressure on Qaeda hide-outs in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Qaeda leaders exercised less control over related organizations and have begun to encourage attacks by unaffiliated individuals, Mr. Kohlmann said.

Exclamation Tariq Ramadan: Palestinian and Muslim Brotherhood's yearning for a Mideast Holocaust

Tariq Ramadan "contextualizes" the Palestinian and Muslim Brotherhood's yearning for a Mideast Holocaust
On Sunday, C-Span ran the Cooper Union panel with Tariq Ramadan, grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood and — until recently — banned from America for funding terrorists and working with their networks. On the platform were Slate’s Jacob Weisberg, the moderator, and George Packer (who provided the only illuminating moment in the proceedings) and Joan Wallach Scott, a notorious academic enabler of Ramadan and terrorist Sami al-Arian, and a professor at Princeton’s Institute for Advanced Study. Also present was Dalia Mogahed, a Muslim version of Scott. Ramadan claimed to be an all-American democrat (but kept attacking the Iraq war which brought democracy to millions of Muslims as “illegal”).

Mogahed and Scott deflected questions from Weisberg about the oppression of women in Islam — an international scandal — by 1) talking about economic inequality and joblessness among Muslim immigrants in Europe and 2) in Scott’s case — the oppression of women in Catholicism. This was an instance of immoral equivalence brought to a new low. Weisberg asked Ramadan about his revealing statement that there should be a “moratorium” on the stoning of women for alleged infidelity. Here Ramadan introduced a word he was to use throughout the evening: “contextualization” — the verbal equivalent of a fog machine. If you contextualized “stoning” you could forget the barbarity of it and see it as a cultural oddity which needed to be reconsidered. Wallach Scott, professing to be a “feminist,” thought the moratorium to be a good idea, and in doing so raised progressive hypocrisy to new levels.

The discussion got really interesting when Packer brought up the fact that Ramadan’s grandfather had declared the Hitlerite grand mufti of Jerusalem — the father of Palestinian nationalism — a hero and helped to save him from being tried as a war criminal after the Holocaust was over. Ramadan contextualized this, saying his grandfather would not support a Nazi except as a nationalist and only supported the mufti because he opposed Zionism. Precisely. “Kill the Jews” is what the Palestinian cause and the Muslim Brotherhood are about, and why both seek to destroy the only democracy in the Middle East and the only state that is tolerant towards others. Packer held his ground manfully but neglected to mention that Ramadan’s grandfather had Mein Kampf translated into Arabic in the thirties and that the war against Israel in the hands of the Brotherhood and its offspring Hamas is a war against the Jews in precisely the sense that the Nazis conducted its precursor. In fact, the mufti — who is the George Washington of the Palestinian cause — was conducting a genocidal campaign against the Jews in the Twenties before Hitler got his going. Joan Wallach Scott supported Ramadan’s contextualization throughout, even when it came to rationalizing the murder of her own people.

When it was over I took a shower.

Arrow New York Muslim gets 10 years of prison dawah for funneling money to jihad camp in Af

New York Muslim gets 10 years of prison dawah for funneling money to jihad camp in Afghanistan



Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, aka Michael Mixon -- yet another convert to the Religion of Peace™ who misunderstands his new religion? "US loan shark jailed for aiding Afghan terrorists," from the London Evening Standard, April 20:
A New York businessman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for trying to funnel money to a terrorism training camp in Afghanistan.
Abdul Tawala Ibn Ali Alishtari, 57, pleaded guilty in September to terrorism financing. He helped transfer £152,000 believing it would help train militants but his accomplice was an undercover agent....

Alishtari, also known as Michael Mixon, thought the money would be used to buy night vision goggles, medical supplies and other equipment. He told the agent to make sure he was "three steps away" from the money to avoid it being traced.

Alishtari donated $20,000 in 2003 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee and more than $15,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee between 2002 and 2004, which the Republican Party election bodies have given to charity.
Grover, is that you?

Arrow Media coverup of Ohio jihadist's arrest exposed

Media coverup of Ohio jihadist's arrest exposed



No surprise on the media blackout. Kudos to Erick Stakelbeck for getting the facts. "CBN Uncovers Exclusive New Details About Ohio Muslim's Arrest," by Erick Stakelbeck for CBN, April 21:
There is a full-fledged media blackout regarding the latest potential case of a phenomenon we've covered extensively here at CBN News: homegrown jihad.
Thankfully, CBN does not subscribe to the "move along, folks, no jihad here" philosophy that is so prevalent in the mainstream media, not to mention at the highest levels of the U.S. government.

I have obtained court documents from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of Ohio detailing the case of a 38-year-old Caucasian convert to Islam named Abdullah Mohammed Muslim (formerly known as Johnnie Clagg). See picture below.




He pleaded guilty on March 24th to charges of being a previously convicted felon in possession of a firearm, to possession of unregistered destructive devices and to charges related to attempted identity theft and Passport fraud.

Muslim's attorney told a local Columbus TV station that his client had traveled to the tribal regions of Pakistan--where Al Qaeda operates tons of training camps--but had no connections to terrorist groups.

Of course not. I guess North Waziristan is merely a new vacation hotspot for white Muslim converts from middle America (and Germany: see here)

What follows are the details about Muslim's case, including some exclusive new information that has been previously unreported.

On October 19, 2009 federal agents found a large weapons ****nal in Muslim's Columbus, Ohio home. According to court documents, the stash included:

-- Enough material to make five pipe bombs.

-- Several smoke cannisters

-- An AK-47

-- An ****nal 7.62 assault rifle

-- A military/swat ballistic vest, plus one ballistic face mask

-- A military flak jacket.

-- A 9mm semiautomatic rifle

-- Over 1,000 rounds of ammunition

-- A CD with digital images of The Anarchist Cookbook "and similar books."

-- A CD with pictures of a small plane crash in Ohio

But the weapons stash was just the tip of the iceberg.

Materials uncovered during the search of Muslim's home confirmed that he was also trying to steal the identity of a wheelchair-bound man in West Virginia who suffers from cerebral palsy. Columbus ATF spokesperson Kimberly Riddell told CBN News that while ATF took the lead in the Muslim investigation, the State Department also became involved due to the identity theft/passport offenses.

According to court documents obtained by CBN News:

"Muslim devised a fraudulent scheme to steal the identity of another real person for the purpose of obtaining a passport so he could leave the country prior to his November 12, 2009 sentencing."

Yes, you read that right. At the time he was picked up in October '09, Muslim was already awaiting sentencing on additional weapons-related charges....
There is much more. Read it all.

Arrow Did you know your tax dollars are funding radical Islamic madrassas* all over the U.S






When the Islamist-sympathizers at the ACLU are trying to have such schools shut down for being too radical, you know there’s a problem.


Turkish Muslims, under the leadership of Fethullah Gulen, have established over 85 madrassahs (Islamic schools) throughout the United States to further the cause of radical Islam. The madrassahs, set up as “charter schools,” receive millions from U.S. taxpayers and serve to promote “education jihad” by radicalizing students to promote a universal caliphate.

How dangerous are the Gulen schools? Consider Tarek ibn Ziyad (TIZA) Academy in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota – – a charter school with 300 students – – almost all Muslims.TIZA was established in 2003, and received $4.7 million from Minnesota taxpayers in 2008 – 2009. It is named after Tarek ibn Ziyas, the Muslim warlord who conquered Spain.

Students at TIZA pray Islamic prayers; the cafeteria serves halal food; and Islamic studies are held within the building every day. The entranceway is inscribed with passages from the Quran and the Hadith.

Recently, a TIZA teacher testified that one of her duties was taking the female students to the restroom in order to supervise their ritual washing before the Friday prayer service.

TIZA is so radically Islamic and subversive in nature that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has initiated a lawsuit to shut it down. In the suit, the ACLU maintains that the school requires female teachers to be covered “from neck to wrist and ankle,” and female students to wear full-length dresses (jihaabs)ACLU to sue Minnesota Muslim public school and state education department for promoting religion….TIZA’s attempt to claim defamation against ACLU was thrown out of court

Witness affidavits portray TiZA as threatening Khalid Elmasry says in an affidavit that after he criticized Tarek ibn Ziyad Academy (TiZA), which his child used to attend, the school’s executive director made a statement at a parent meeting that Elmasry took “as an attempt to incite violence against me and my family.” Even more disturbing is what Janeha Edwards — a former administrative assistant at the school — says in an affidavit the director suggested after she displeased him: “We could just kill you, yeah tell your husband we’ll do his job for him.”

Yet the Minnesota Department of Education ruled that TIZA is neither an Islamic nor a religious school. The decision remains quizzical in light of the fact that TIZA is closely linked to the Muslim American Society (MAS) of Minnesota, which occupies space within the school building. MAS has been called “the Muslim equivalent of the Neo-Nazi party.”

“It is the de facto arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S.,” said Steven Emerson, director of the Investigative Project on Terrorism.The agenda of the MAS is to … impose Islamic law in the U.S., to undermine U.S. counterterrorism policy.” MAS was founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood, an international Islamist movement created in Egypt in 1928. Radical members of the Brotherhood founded the terror group Hamas and were among the first members of Al Qaeda.


The Muslim American Society’s former secretary general has acknowledged that the group was founded by the Brotherhood, and in 2004 he estimated that about half of MAS members were in the Muslim Brotherhood. “Ikhwan [Brotherhood] members founded MAS, but MAS went way beyond that point of conception,” Shaker Elsayed told the Chicago Tribune, explaining that the group had expanded to include a wider viewpoint.

The Department of Justice has never taken action against MAS and declined to comment on whether it was investigating the group’s ties.The Minnesota chapter of MAS featured writings on its website from Islamic clerics praising Hamas and urging Muslims to “wage Jihad until death.”



Last December, the Minnseota chapter of MAS funded Representative Keith Ellison’s trip to Mecca. Ellison, a Democrat, became the first U.S. congressman to make a hajj (pilgrimage) to Mecca.

Charles Samuelson, Minnesota’s Executive Director of the ACLU, says that the Gulen charter school funnels money – – derived from US taxpayers – – to MAS without a word of censure from the Minnesota Department of Education or the Internal Revenue officials who supervise the activities of non-profit schools and organizations.

“Their founding ideologues are all members of the Muslim Brotherhood,” Emerson said. “I don’t think you can get more radical in the United States without crossing the line to incitement.”

TIZA is not unique. Other Gulen schools within the US, including the Beehive Academy in Salt Lake City, the Chesapeake Science Point School in Washington DC, and the Sonoran Academy in Tucson have been charged with indoctrinating students in the tenets of radical Islam so they may be of serve in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the creation of an Islamic world order.

Most of these schools are staffed by Turkish teachers – – primarily male – – who reportedly are bound by tuzuk – – an obligatory pay back of 40% of their wages to the Gulen movement.

Arrow "Major Muslim group sets up human rights division"

"Major Muslim group sets up human rights division"



This is an empty move designed to bamboozle unwary and ignorant Infidels (and there is no shortage of those, to be sure). There is no indication that the Organization of the Islamic Conference understands human rights according to any standard other than that delineated by the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights. That document enshrines Sharia as the fundamental guide to human rights, and Sharia denies basic human rights including freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of women with men and Muslims with non-Muslims. This is a meaningless gesture that will have no effect other than to give some fools a false reassurance.

"Major Muslim group sets up human rights division," by Rachelle Kliger for The Media Line, April 23:
The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has announced it is setting up a special division that will deal with human rights.

Following a Tuesday meeting with the UN's High Commissioner for Human Rights Navanethem Pillay in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said the organization was on the verge of creating a permanent and independent committee for human rights.

Ihsanoglu said he hoped that the committee's creation would bring about a "paradigm shift" in the OIC....

The OIC spans 57 countries over four continents, making it the second-largest inter-governmental organization after the United Nations. It was established in 1969 and aims to be the "collective voice of the Muslim world."

However, Mona Abousenna, secretary general of the Averroes and Enlightenment International Association, said the committee would only be effective if it avoided religious influences.

"Setting up a human rights committee at the Organization of the Islamic Conference could be a positive move in one case only, and that is if this committee does not derive its principles of human rights from Sharia [Islamic Law] and other divine sources, but from human principles and ideals," she told The Media Line.
But of course there is no chance of that whatsoever.
Her comments reflect a belief among some Islamic critics that Islamic tenets do not fall in line with principles of human rights.
That's obvious from any honest look at the teachings of Islamic law, and the day's headlines.
"Having stated what it is against, it has also to announce what it is for," she said of Islam, "namely, freedom of expression and acceptance of difference of opinions and, above all, a mind-set that is not absolutist and accepts a secular method of thinking - by which I mean thinking about relative issues in a relative, and not in an absolute way. It must accept all religions of the world as equal to Islam and respect their followers as much as it should embrace nonbelievers and skeptics."...
With freedom of expression under attack from Muslims in the U.S. today -- South Park, our bus ads, Franklin Graham, the Elyea case -- it is hardly likely that the OIC, which is trying to compel the UN to criminalize criticism of Islam, is going to come out in favor of freedom of expression.
Bat Ye'or, a British scholar and specialist on the history of non-Muslims in the Middle East, said the OIC's charter included the propagation, promotion and preservation of Islamic teachings and values based on moderation and tolerance. "It is clear to me that the OIC needs to improve the image of human rights in Muslim countries, although these are not uniform," she told The Media Line. "It also needs to establish a general framework for its member countries. However, these human rights will be rooted in the Quran, the Sunna and the Shari'a. They will not be similar to the Universal Declaration, which is secular. They will be rooted in the religion, in Islam....
Indeed.

Exclamation What has happened to the freedom of speech? Minnesota man facing charges for anti-Isl

What has happened to the freedom of speech? Minnesota man facing charges for anti-Islam drawings
"Given what our Supreme Court has done to protect the right to free speech, it baffles me that the government has not dismissed this case," says Elyea's lawyer.

Ah, but in this case Muslims are offended.

"Hearing set for man who posted anti-Islam drawings," by David Unze for the St. Cloud Times, April 23:
A June 1 hearing has been scheduled for the Waite Park man who admitted posting anti-Islam drawings at various locations in St. Cloud.
The hearing is an opportunity for Sidney Allen Elyea to dispute a civil charge that he violated a city ordinance prohibiting posting materials on fixtures. Elyea faces two civil charges that each carry a maximum fine of $250.

Elyea has admitted posting the drawings and said he did so to educate others about Islam. The city charged Elyea through the civil process after county attorneys in Benton and Stearns counties declined to file criminal charges of obscenity or defamation against him, saying that what he posted was protected speech.
So two county attorneys thought that Elyea was exercising his freedom of speech, and yet the city pressed forward with a case anyway. Why is that? Why are Muslims being set up in this country as a protected class that must not be criticized or offended? Who else enjoys such protection? Why, no one, of course. And no one should.
Elyea's attorney has echoed that opinion, adding previously that Elyea was protesting in a nonviolent manner and that the city's ordinance encourages arbitrary enforcement and is void because it's vague.
"Given what our Supreme Court has done to protect the right to free speech, it baffles me that the government has not dismissed this case," Attorney Ryan Garry said Friday. "The city attorney's office should be charging and citing residents for the crimes they commit, not for the opinions they have."...

The drawings that Elyea posted contained explicit depictions of bestiality and sodomy, contained images of the Prophet Muhammad in derogatory positions and contained pictures and words offensive to Muslims in particular.

One set of the drawings was found posted to a telephone pole outside a Somali-owned business in East St. Cloud. Other copies were found in other parts of the city.
So he may be a jerk. He may be a provocateur. He may be a lout. But is it illegal now to be those things, when a certain hypersensitive group is the recipient of the loutish behavior?

New York jihad subway bomb plotter rants against "Zionist Jews" in court



He went to Afghanistan to wage jihad in order to establish the "perfect justice of Allah" -- i.e., Sharia. "Zazi cohort pleads guilty in subway terror bombing plot, blames Jews," by Janon Fisher for the New York Post, April 23:
A city cab driver who the feds claim plotted with a self-confessed al-Qaeda terrorist to unleash an attack on the subway system pleaded guilty today to terrorism charges -- then went on a rant against "Zionist Jews" for trying to destroy this country.

Zarein Ahmedzay appeared in Brooklyn federal court and told a judge that he received orders from al-Qaeda leaders to carry out the botched plot last September to bomb several Manhattan subway lines.

"Your honor, I strongly urge the American people to stop supporting the war against Islam. It would be in their interest," warned Ahmedzay. "I am thankful for myself that I did not do anything to harm anyone, but I fear someone else might."

Ahmedzay, 25, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction and providing material support to al-Qaeda. He faces life in prison when he is sentenced July 30.

The feds said he joined admitted terrorist Najibullah Zazi and another pal from their Queens high school on a trip to Pakistan two years ago to seek terrorism training.

The bombings were planned for just a few days after the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Zazi, an airport van driver, admitted earlier this year that he tested homemade bomb-making materials in a Denver suburb before driving to New York with the goal of attacking the subways to avenge US military involvement in Afghanistan.

During his court appearance, Ahmedzay continued his tirade, saying the "real enemy of this country are the ones destroying the country from within ... I believe it's a special group, Zionist Jews, who want a permanent shadow government."...

"During the summer of 2008 we went to Afghanistan to wage jihad against American occupiers and the corrupt Karzai government to establish the perfect justice of Allah," said Ahmedzay. "We were prepared to kill the occupying forces, including United States military. ... [al-Somali and Rauf] spoke English very well. We told these individuals that we wanted to wage jihad in Afghanistan."

Ahmedzay and the third suspect, Adis Medunjanin, had previously pleaded not guilty to charges they sought to join Zazi.

"The three of us decided to continue with the suicide bombing during the month of Ramadan," he said.

Zazi handed over the detonator and the bomb - a combination of acetone and hydrogen peroxide.

When Zazi caught a whiff of the FBI surveillance, he and Medunjanin were told that the plot was off.

Federal prosecutors said the men had modeled the attacks after the London transit bombings of July 2005 that killed 52 people.

"I personally believed that conducting an operation in the United States would be the best way to end the wars [in Iraq and Afghanistan]. ... They decided we would be more useful in New York. I was familiar with the city as I was a New York City taxi driver. I knew the city very well. The most important thing was it hit well known critical structures to maximize the damage and casualties."...


Two Al-Qaeda top dogs met with New York jihad bomb plotters



Planning a suicide bomb attack on city subways. "Feds: 2 al-Qaida leaders ordered NYC bomb plot," by Tom Hays for Associated Press, April 23:
NEW YORK (AP) -- Prosecutors say two al-Qaida leaders met with New York terror suspects in Pakistan and ordered them to conduct a suicide bomb attack on city subways.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Knox identified them as senior operative Saleh al-Somali and Rashid Rauf. Both died in strikes in the past year in Pakistan.

Knox made the disclosure in Brooklyn federal court Friday as Zarein Ahmedzay (zah-RAYN' ah-MIHD'-zay) pleaded guilty to the suicide bomb plot last September.

Ahmedzay admitted to conspiracy to use weapons of destruction and providing material support to al-Qaida. He was charged with admitted al-Qaida associate Najibullah Zazi (nah-jee-BOO'-lah ZAH'-zee).

Authorities say they and another high school classmate from New York planned the attacks for days after the eighth anniversary of Sept. 11....

Lightbulb New York subway jihad plotter quotes Qur'an verse justifying suicide bombing

New York subway jihad plotter quotes Qur'an verse justifying suicide bombing



The last part of this, Ahmedzay's rant against "Zionist Jews," not reproduced below, was reported yesterday. This report is extraordinary for the fact that it shows Ahmedzay quoting Qur'an 9:111 to justify suicide bombing. This is a common tactic of suicide bombing recruiters, but to point it out in teh West usually brings one a charge of "Islamophobia." I guess Ahmedzay must be an "Islamophobe." "Zarein Ahmedzay's statement when he pleaded guilty to terrorist charges," from the New York Post, April 23 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
"Your Honor, I would like to quote from the Qur'an." "Quote, Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their wealth for the price of Paradise, to fight in the way of Allah, to kill and get killed. It is a promise binding on the truth in the Torah, the Gospel and the Qur'an, end of quote.
That's Qur'an 9:111, the justification for suicide attacks. The only guarantee of Paradise in the Qur'an is this verse, which guarantees it to those who kill and are killed for Allah.

This once again underscores the jihadist contention that they represent Islamic authenticity -- a charge never yet refuted by Muslim "moderates" in any way that has proven effective to change jihadists' minds.
