News Items:

1. Pakistan mosque bomb blast in Shikarpur kills dozens

2. Nigerian mobs stone president’s convoy over Boko Haram

Kano, Nigeria (CNN)Angry mobs upset over the handling of militant group Boko Haram on Thursday pelted the motorcade of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan.

The protesters hurled stones at the convoy as it left the palace of a traditional chief in Jalingo, the capital of the northeastern state of Taraba, where Jonathan had gone on a courtesy call before holding a rally as part of his re-election campaign.

Nigerians will vote for their next president February 14.

Several vehicles were damaged in the attack, according to witnesses.

“As soon the convoy left the palace of the emir of Muri, the crowd threw stones and broke the windscreens of several vehicles and dented others,” said Jalingo resident Clement Moses.

(Given that Boko Haram now controls a country larger than Belgium at the cost of tens of thousands of slaughtered Christian and non-muslim Nigerians, I can see why the general public might resent the presidents campaign motorcade)

3. Boko Haram crisis: Chad ‘captures Nigerian town from militants’

Chad’s army has driven Boko Haram militants out of Malumfatori town in north-eastern Nigeria, a senior official from Niger has told the BBC.

The reported capture of the town, which lies near the borders of Chad and Niger, follows two days of fighting.

Both ground and air forces are reported to have been used in the assault.

4. Open Jihad Declared in Egypt Following State Dept. Meeting with Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders

The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.

Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.

The statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.

“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom,” it states.

(I’ll reserve comment for the moment on this one)

Analysis:

5. Carolyn Glick on Iran and the recent Israeli strike on military facilities in Syria. One paragraph particularly haunts me still:

[…] While the Obama administration did perhaps refuse to serve as Iran’s messenger, it has worked to deter Israel from striking Hezbollah and Iranian targets in Syria. Whereas Israel has a policy of never acknowledging responsibility for its military operations in Syria, in order to give President Bashar Assad an excuse to not retaliate, the US administration has repeatedly informed the media of Israeli attacks and so increased the risk that such Israeli operations will lead to counterattacks against Israel. […]

6. Boris Johnson uses a slur against Islamic State recruits that is so old and so overused that one wonders who will care this time just because it is far more true than usual.

Boris Johnson has said that Islamic jihadists are “literally w*****s” who turn to extremism when “they are rejected by women”.

The London Mayor claimed, in an interview for The Sun, that the individuals who travel to Syria and Iraq to fight for Isis, also known as the Islamic State, needed to be demystified after he was handed an MI5 probe revealing the ‘typical’ profile of many of the young men.

Mr Johnson, 50, said: “If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w*****s. Severe onanists.”

“The problem is, every group has labelled every enemy group that since the first proto human threw a rock at another proto human, to the point where one of the most popular sports teams in the world is actually called, ‘The Yankees’)

Some updates, additions and thoughts on today’s stories: Links 5 on Jan 29 – 2015

1. I don’t think this student was an Islamic terrorist at the TV station in the Netherlands. Neither his clothing, note, actions nor speech were at all typical of any Islamic action. He did not seek martyrdom and in fact seemed to feel an urgent need to warn the people of the Netherlands about what might actually be an impending attack.

He was well dressed, polite, surrendered without hurting anyone and was certain everyone would be unharmed once he delivered his message. More on him here. But I think we need to know what he wanted to say. CTV now reports his gun was a fake.

2. Voluntary sharia law tribunal begins in Texas. The slippery slope indeed.

 Breitbart Texas confirmed Tuesday that “an Islamic Tribunal using Sharia law” is indeed operating in Texas. But not to worry: an attorney for the tribunal assures us that participation is “voluntary,” and one of the Sharia judges, Dr. Taher El-badawi, says it’s devoted only to “non-binding dispute resolution.”

3. EU interior ministers discuss anti-Muslim discrimination in Europe

(EUROPOL: shutting down your most fundamental rights one at a time)

[…] He said one of the main measures will be not only improving the monitoring of Internet but boosting the programme “Check the web” at Europol to be a bit more effective in removing illegal content from the web. On his part Rihards Kozlovskis, Minister for the Interior of Latvia, said “we are going to continue to discuss measures to help fight terrorism, such has combating radicalization, improving exchange of information and cooperation among all the authorities involved in fighting terrorism. As well, I would like to mention the fighting against the traffic of illicit firearms.” (end) nk.ajs

4. Israeli Arab arrested for running ISIS recruiting and training cell in Israel:

Translator’s notes:

ISIS Terrorists in Northern Israel

A few weeks ago the Israeli security services uncovered six members of an ISIS terror cell in northern Israel. The cell’s main organizer, Adnan Jameel Ala Adin, a 39-year-old from Nazareth, has been a successful Israeli Arab lawyer. He recruited other young Arabs to join and fight along with ISIS in Syria. At his farm they trained in assembling Molotov cocktails, and they bought sheep to train in beheading, all with the objective of escaping to Syria.

On his Facebook page Ala Adin posted the infamous Hadith calling on Muslims to find the Jews behind the rock and to kill him:

Bukhari (52:177)Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

He added the following: “Does anyone still have the temerity to doubt the virtue of this Hadith?

To the rest of his cell members, Ala Adin described himself as the future ISIS military chief of staff in Palestine.

5. No women allowed: Saudi Arabia wants MEN-ONLY Olympics with ultra-conservative plan for segregated games

(And if we wanted a games with no muslims allowed somehow we would be the bad guys)

Ultra-conservative Saudi Arabia wants to see men and women compete in separate Olympics with a controversial proposal to joint-host segregated games.

An official from the Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee floated the idea of male athletes competing in his country while a female games would be held in neighbouring Bahrain.

Prince Fahad bin Jalawi Al Saud, an international relations consultant to the president of the Saudi committee, told French sports website Frances Jeux that he could see the country bidding for the Olympics with another Gulf state.

6. APNewsBreak: Suspected terrorist brother of no-fly-list man

By MATTHEW BARAKAT
Associated Press

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) – The FBI on Thursday added a former taxi driver from northern Virginia to its list of most-wanted terrorists, saying he was a recruiter for the al-Shabab terror group in Somalia.

An arrest warrant, originally issued in February, was unsealed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria for Liban Haji Mohamed, 29, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Somalia.

He is the older brother of Gulet Mohamed, who for the past four years has been challenging his placement on the government’s no-fly list, the attorney representing the younger Mohamed, Gadeir Abbas, told The Associated Press on Thursday. A hearing on Gulet Mohamed’s case is scheduled in federal court in Alexandria on Friday.

Abbas said Liban Mohamed aggressively advocated on his younger brother’s behalf when Gulet Mohamed was detained in Kuwait several years ago and barred from returning to the U.S., and that the FBI began to harass him as a result. He said his family suspects he went into hiding to avoid the harassment.

Washington (CNN)The U.S. military and intelligence community now suspect that one of the five Taliban detainees released from Guantanamo Bay in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in May of last year has attempted to return to militant activity from his current location in Qatar, CNN has learned exclusively.

The development has led to an ongoing debate inside the administration about whether there is a new threat from this man, and potentially the other four.

Simultaneous attacks in Egypt’s Sinai kill 25

Boston Globe:

EL-ARISH, Egypt (AP) — Militants struck more than a dozen army and police targets in the restive Sinai Peninsula with simultaneous attacks involving a car bomb and mortar rounds on Thursday, killing at least 25 people, including civilians, officials said.

An Islamic State affiliate previously known as Ansar Beit al-Maqdis has launched several attacks against the police and the army in Sinai in recent years, particularly following the military overthrow of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in 2013.

But the wide-ranging attacks late Thursday, which struck the Northern Sinai provincial capital el-Arish, the nearby town of Sheik Zuwayid and the town of Rafah bordering Gaza, indicate a previously unseen level of coordination.

Adolf Hollande accused of anti-muslim plot

Original Translation by Bear

from 20min Switzerland

A Moroccan daily paper has photoshopped the French president into Adolph Hitler. The paper details how Francois Hollande is preparing the extermination of muslims.

adolph hollande poster

The Arabic Moroccan daily (Al Watan al An) wanted to shock and it did:

Three days after the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, in one sedition on the 29th of Jan. Francois Hollande is disguised as Adolph Hitler more truly than nature: Small mustache, dressed as Nazi and Nazi armband.

Beside the picture, the title in Arabic allows people to think: “Will the French recreate the concentration camps of Hitler to exterminate the Muslims?”

The Moroccan French weekly, (Telquel) has questioned the director of the publication, Al Watan al An, of this choice of scoop. “It is very lightly against the French president. He deserves worse. The French government does not ensure the security of Muslim citizens in France as is the case for the Jewish community”

(Arabic name) “The journalist rejects the responsibility of the many anti-islam acts, 128 acts took place in the last 2 weeks representing almost as many as in the year 2014 total, following the attacks in Paris towards the French government. Many places of muslim worship are attacked daily without it bothering the French authorities”.

[another comment same guy]

That sees the left and the French right in competition to see who will cause the most damage to the muslim community, goes as far as saying that the French is preparing the country to deprive the muslims of roofs over their heads and employment if it continues this way.

Telquel reminds that this article and this scoop could fall under the code of the Moroccan press according to article 52, ‘offense publicly committed against a chief of state and their dignity, a chief of government, ministers of foreign affairs of foreign nations, will be punished by imprisonment of one month to one year and a fine of 10,000 to 100,000 Dirhams or one of the two sentences only.

WW3 gearing up and I haven’t even included the ‘USSR Mk 2′ materials. Links 3 on Jan. 29 – 2015

1. Radical imam could open community centre in Montreal

(Media still clings to the ‘radical’ prefix with velcro. But even ‘radical islam’ takes guts these days)

In the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough, officials are taking a closer look at a permit request from an Islamic community centre after learning the imam who’ll be working with young people there has some radical views.

The mayor of Hoshelaga Maisonneuve told La Presse the centre has not received their permit to open yet and they are evaluating it closely.

Imam Hamza Chaoui would like to teach the youth at the new Ashabeb centre.

(Point De Bascule has a lot on this guy)

2.Cologne carnival organizers cancel Charlie Hebdo float

(Once again, proving that none of those marching bozos were really Charlie now were they?)

Cologne’s Rose Monday Carnival procession will not feature a Charlie Hebdo-themed float. The parade’s committee member said they pulled the feature over concerns about its inclusion in February’s festival.

Drawing of suggested Charlie Hebdo float

Cologne’s Rose Monday Carnival parade draws hundreds of thousands to the city each year and many of its floats are derived from current affairs and are often political in nature.

Following the deadly attack on the satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” in Paris on January 7, which were widely seen as an attack on the freedom of expression organizers of the Cologne Carnival parade decided to create a float as show of support.

Now organizers confirmed that they have decided to cancel the float because of security concerns.

“National aviation authorities are reporting an increased risk to flight operation safety due to potential terrorist attacks in Pakistan,” the EASA said.

The European air safety agency recommended planes not to fly below 24,000 feet in the latest safety information bulletin issued on their website.

“The Agency draws the aviation community’s attention to information… That indicate the existence of an increased risk to the safety of international civil flights and airspace restrictions implemented as a consequence,” it added.

6. ‘We will cut off your head in the White House': ISIS threatens to behead Obama and turn the U.S. into a ‘Muslim province’ in new execution video 

Islamic State militants have threatened to behead Barack Obama and turn the U.S. into a Muslim province in the latest gruesome video to emerge from their self-styled caliphate.

The footage shows a black-clad jihadist standing over a Kurdish soldier who, in a sickening climax to the video, has his head cut off.

Before the hostage is executed, the ISIS fighter warns the U.S. president: ‘Know, oh Obama, that we will reach America.

‘Know also that we will cut off your head in the White House and transform America into a Muslim province.’

Federal prosecutors allege he committed a robbery for the benefit of an unspecified terrorist organization. Authorities also say the adolescent is charged with planning to leave Canada to participate in the activities of a terrorist group abroad.

Waring grey sweat pants and a black-and-grey hoodie, the accused listened quietly as he sat between two guards. His lawyer said his parents were not present because they knew the postponement was coming.

The adolescent will remain detained until the next court appearance.

The teen pleaded guilty to a separate robbery charge in November and was to have a sentencing hearing on Wednesday.

Some fight back, some exposure of islamic activities in Canada and what is the actual position of the US? Links 1 on Jan 29 – 2015

1. PM: Slovakia is Christian, No to Muslims and Mosques

“Since Slovakia is a Christian country, we cannot tolerate an influx of 300,000-400,000 Muslim immigrants who would like to start building mosques all over our land and trying to change the nature, culture and values ??of the state,” said Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico.

Slovakia is the country that had its commemorative Euro coin depicting two Christian saints, Cyril and Methodius, at first rejected by the European Commission, which told Bratislava it would need to re-design the coins and remove Christian symbols, including halos and a cross-adorned stole. Eventually the Slovakia Euro was issued with halos and crosses.

This is the umpteenth demonstration of an obvious historical and contemporary fact: the stronger a country’s attachment to its Christian heritage, the more robust, intelligent and informed its fight against Islam, as Mr Fico’s strategy well exemplifies.

2. No More Mosques in Lombardy Region, Italy, from Today
Muslim worshippers in Milan's Cathedral Square

Victory! Something is changing. Some positive effects of the Charlie Hebdo atrocities are felt in Italy, with crackdown on the cult of Islam. First Massimo Bitonci, the mayor of the city of Padua, in the region of Venice (Veneto), Northern Italy, simply and clearly said: “No more mosques in Padua. The city council will not grant any more public space for the building of mosques and Islamic places of worship.”

3. Muslim group linked to terror organization buying buildings across Canada

MONTREAL — A Muslim umbrella organization that allegedly funnelled money to a Hamas-linked charity is buying up property from Quebec to Alberta.

QMI Agency conducted land-register searches that show the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), based in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga, has bought at least 11 buildings in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta since 2006.

They’re being converted into mosques, community centres and schools as the group’s financial dealings catch the attention of the RCMP.

The group was named in a search warrant related to Project Sapphire, a probe into terrorist financing. Warrants indicates MAC sent nearly $300,000 in the 2000s to IRFAN-Canada, a group that raised millions for Hamas. […] The largest known MAC acquisition is a six-storey, $4.7-million building in Montreal’s financial district that will house the Canadian Institute of Islamic Civilization. […]

4. Newt Gingrich: Choosing Tyranny Over Freedom: The Obama Legacy

In deciding to skip the Unity March in Paris for a football game but cut short his trip to India to go to Saudi Arabia, President Obama chose tyranny over freedom.

His comments about the Saudi regime in advance of his trip confirmed the President’s priorities. As the Associated Press reports:

“Sometimes we need to balance our need to speak to them about human rights issues with immediate concerns we have in terms of counterterrorism or dealing with regional stability,” Obama said in a CNN interview aired while the president flew from New Delhi to Riyadh.

Although Obama will meet formally with the new king, Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud, he suggested he would not be raising U.S. concerns about Saudi Arabia’s flogging of blogger Raif Badawi, who was convicted of insulting Islam and sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1,000 lashes.

His first flogging took place in early January in front of dozens of people in the Red Sea city of Jiddah, though a second round has been postponed after a doctor said his wounds from the first lashes had not yet healed.”

You have to read these paragraphs several times to understand how committed the Obama Administration is to apologies and appeasement of Islamist tyranny.

5. Startling revelations: IS operative confesses to getting funds via US

(Not saying that like, the Obama admin is supporting the Islamic State or anything, but I do notice there is a startling amount of weapons and equipment that seems to get intercepted by them on route to their victims)

Pakistan has shared the confessions with top US officials, including John Kerry. PHOTO: AFP

ISLAMABAD: Yousaf al Salafi – allegedly the Pakistan commander of Islamic State (IS) or Daish – has confessed during investigations that he has been receiving funds through the United States.

Law enforcing agencies on January 22 claimed that they arrested al Salafi, along with his two companions, during a joint raid in Lahore. However, sources revealed that al Salafi was actually arrested sometimes in December last year and it was only disclosed on January 22.

“During the investigations, Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organisation in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria,” a source privy to the investigations revealed to Daily Express on the condition of anonymity.

Three new newspeak items we all must hear and obey

1. Taliban not a terrorist group, White House deputy press secretary says

2. White House Taliban Not A Terror Group – The Kelly File

3. And now, courtesy of the Guardian, the single funniest thing i have read in a week, swallow your milk be fore you read further: …

Tarik Kafala, the head of BBC Arabic, the largest of the BBC’s non-English language news services, said the term “terrorist” was seen as “value-laden” and should not be used to describe the actions of the men who killed 12 people in the attack on the French satirical magazine.

Get that? We should not apply any terms laden with ‘judgment’, on people who murdered a dozen artists and employees who work at a magazine, and interestingly they failed to mention the attack at the Jewish grocer in another part of town where they killed another four. I guess the term, ‘small lead object kinetic engineers’ would be OK though.

To really understand the threats and intent, one would have to be willing to look up the referenced scripture in it and possibly the relevant tasfirs of interpretation of those bits of scripture. But even without doing it some of it is pretty clear. I think one of my favorite parts, if a rabid skunk intoning threat-poetry can have a part which is a favorite, is where he explains the battle now is to force ‘monotheism’ on all the people in the parts of the Islamic State now conquered and about to be. There are other threats vague and specific and definite warnings to the usual suspects that add up to all who aren’t muslims. But not knowing this and not reading their propaganda strikes me as unwise. If more people had read Hitler’s book and taken it seriously, tens of millions of lives could have been saved by acting forcefully against him earlier. Here is a chance to preempt that kind of slaughter once again by doing the same. We won’t do it, but I like to think we have a moral oblation to try.

Thank you M., SeekTruth, Lynx, ML., and all. More to come. Also I would like to extend a welcome to a flurry of new people who have started to send links and post comments. Thank you. This is great stuff and we need people on campuses as I think a lot of people still do not understand the theater of the absurd they have become at this point.

No rights for free people without the right to defend them: Proof post 3 on Jan. 28 – 2015

2. Yemen: See pro-Houthi protesters BURN and STAB US flag

3. Michelle Obama blurred out by Saudi TV

(I don’t know if I have posted this yet or not but I have been thinking about it since the clip was first sent to me and watched it several times. I have to say, this is the first thing I have seen the Obamas do that I can say I respect and like a great deal, although I feel certain it was more she than he, this was the first appropriately directed act of recalcitrance from the first lady I am aware of. I have seen her mock and scorn much American tradition and symbols and insult her history in backhanded and forehanded ways but refusing to wear slave rags in Saudi, that one we should all get behind.)

5. Austria: Minister calls for fines for ‘integration failure’

(Very interesting. Especially when added to other recent changes in Austrian legislation)

He told ORF radio that he would recommend fines of up to €1,000 and also said that he wanted school children to work on social projects at school.

Chancellor Werner Faymann (SPÖ) and Vice-Chancellor Reinhold Mitterlehner (ÖVP) have said there is currently no need for tougher criminal laws relating to integration refusal but Mitterlehner did support Kurz’s suggestion for a fine, citing the example of a father who repeatedly refused to attend a school’s parents’ day, as his child’s teacher was a woman.

Islamic forces making gains pretty much everywhere: Links 2 on Jan. 28 – 2015

1. Extremists Rampage in Northeast Nigeria, No Troops Fighting

Islamic extremists are rampaging through villages in northeast Nigeria’s Adamawa state, killing, burning and looting with no troops deployed to protect civilians, fleeing villagers said Wednesday.

More than 40 people have been killed in seven villages as houses and mosques have been burned down and businesses and homes looted this week, according to Emmanuel Kwache and state legislator Adamu Kamale.

“They don’t spare anything: they slaughtered people like rams and they burned down our houses after looting food,” Kwache said. “There’s no presence of troops, some residents are hiding on top of hills, while those that could not run were abducted, particularly youths and women.”

Kamale said he has appealed in vain to authorities to send troops since the attacks began on Friday. On Monday, he said, the militants moved from villages to the town of Michika. […]

The city of 2 million residents appears to be surrounded. Three roads lead to areas held by Boko Haram. The militants are believed to be attacking the fourth road leading to the northern city of Kano, according to residents too scared to leave though they fear an imminent attack.

(Are they doing calls to payer yet in the national assembly?)

4. Jan 28 2015: Muslim Brotherhood-Aligned Leaders Hosted at State Department

The State Department hosted a delegation of Muslim Brotherhood-aligned leaders this week for a meeting about their ongoing efforts to oppose the current government of President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi of Egypt, who rose to power following the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi, an ally of the Brotherhood, in 2013.

One member of the delegation, a Brotherhood-aligned judge in Egypt, posed for a picture while at Foggy Bottom in which he held up the Islamic group’s notorious four-finger Rabia symbol, according to his Facebook page.

5. Video shows Hezbollah Brigades convoy transporting American M1 tank

A video uploaded to YouTube appears to show a large Hezbollah Brigades convoy transporting weapons, troops, and armored vehicles to the front to fight the Islamic State.

Several American-made military vehicles, including an M1 Abrams tank, M113 armored personnel carriers, Humvees, and Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles (MRAP), as well as Iranian-made Safir 4x4s and technicals (armed pickup trucks) are in the convoy.

The Hezbollah Brigades is US-designated foreign terrorist organization that has been involved in killing American soldiers in Iraq.

7. Canadian Muslim group funnelled $300K to Hamas-linked charity: Documents

MONTREAL — One of the country’s largest Muslim organizations gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to a Hamas-linked charity, and vocally supported an Egyptian Islamist group, QMI Agency has learned.

The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC), based in the Toronto suburb of Mississauga, Ont., owns or operates at least 20 Islamic schools and 15 mosques in Ontario, Alberta and Quebec.

MAC’s website says the group is centred around “holistic educational and spiritual development” and “has no organizational link or affiliation with other organizations.”

However, QMI obtained an RCMP search warrant linking the group to IRFAN-Canada, a banned charity group and a listed terrorist organization also based in Mississauga.

Thank you M., Richard, Draculea, Grace,  Don L., and all. More to come shortly.
