Perhaps one has to understand what tyranny looks like to appreciate freedom: Links 1 on March 6 – 2015

1. Is the US planning to create the same situation with Iran it did with North Korea?

Sherman negotiated the US’s nuclear pact with North Korea in the 1990s. The North Koreans used the deal as a smokescreen behind which they developed nuclear weapons while receiving financial assistance from the US which paid off the regime for signing the deal.

Once Pyongyang was ready to come out as a nuclear power, it threw out the nuclear inspectors, opened the sealed nuclear sites, vacated its signature on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and began testing nuclear bombs.

Sherman is now the US’s chief negotiator in the P5+1 nuclear talks with Iran.

2. Terrorist attack in Israel, man runs over 5 police with car then goes on stabbing spree.

3. The Ottawa Citizen, one of the newspapers in Canada with the most gravitas, concedes that some muslims define jihad thusly in an article about the soon-to-be-released video of the muslim who attacked Parliament hill:

He spoke just long enough to talk about the actions he was soon to take, and put them into the context of “jihad,” the Arabic word for struggle that is associated — moderate Muslims argue wrongly — with a struggle against non-believers. He took aim at Canada’s foreign policy, threatened the Canadian military and invoked “Allah.”

(The Ottawa Citizen may have done well to read Reliance of the traveler B2.2, E4.4, H8.17, and my personal favorite, Reliance of the Traveler book o9.0:)

 “@(O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said as he was returning from jihad.”

(In other words, jihad is legally defined in islam as military expedition against unbelievers for the purpose of inflicting them with islamic rule. The desperation of media to assist an enemy of freedom of speech will baffle future historians for centuries. Unless we lose. Then it will all look like Allah’s will.)

4. Muslims from the IS take their war against ‘the time of ignorance’ seriously. This article covers some of that. This blog has many articles showing how where muslims control the territory sufficiently they will destroy all evidence of pre-islamic life as a requirement by islamic law.

5. Confusing article about the culling of books at the Concordia jihad library.

“Are we going back to the dark ages?”

(Would you trust that guy to pick which books your kids should read?)

6. Three arrested for threat to Halifax Mall

7. Gay man surprised that onlookers just stand there and watch as muslims drop homosexuals from building and stone them. This may be one of those times where that tired poem about, ‘they came for the Jews’ is actually appropriate. Suddenly islamic rules means something to him.

8. Syria conflict: Clashes near Aleppo intelligence HQ

Fierce clashes are taking place in the Syrian city of Aleppo, near the Air Force Intelligence facility attacked by rebels on Wednesday, activists say.

A security source was quoted as saying that government forces had launched an assault on rebel positions in the west of the city on Thursday morning.

There was no immediate information on casualties.

9. Boston Marathon bomber admits he did it.

Today the reasonable man looks crazy

10. ‘Boko Haram’ kills dozens in raid on Nigerian village

Suspected Boko Haram militants have killed at least 45 people in a village in Borno state, north-east Nigeria, witnesses have said.

The gunmen who stormed Njaba targeted men and boys before setting the village on fire, survivors added.

The raid happened early on Tuesday but was not reported immediately because of the remoteness of the area.

Boko Haram has killed thousands of people in its drive to establish an Islamic state.

Keeping our eyes open means seeing horrible things. Closing them means losing everything: Links 4 on March 5 – 2015

1. ‘Last Jew in Pakistan’ Beaten by Muslim Mob – Then Arrested

Fishel Benkhald, who is leading a campaign to restore Karachi’s Jewish cemetery, attacked after agreeing to debate over minority rights.

A Jewish activist in Pakistan was savagely beaten by a Muslim mob Wednesday – and then arrested and roughed up again by police.

Fishel Benkhald – who is leading a one-man campaign to preserve the old Jewish cemetery in Pakistan’s largest city, Karachi – has been a vocal activist for minority rights in the country, which is overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim and where minorities such as Christians, Hindus and non-Sunni Muslims are routinely persecuted.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva Thursday, Benkhald – the son of a Muslim father and a Jewish mother, but who identifies as Jewish – told how he had agreed to a face-to-face debate with a Muslim Pakistani man after a discussion on the topic of minority rights on Twitter.

2. Most interesting links between Amnesty International and CAGE linked to ‘Jihadi John’.

In the past decade or so Amnesty has widened its brief from human rights and torture into such matters as how to reduce poverty and limit the arms trade. (By contrast, Human Rights Watch, a pre-eminent New York-based monitoring group, has stuck closely to the mission for which it is named.) Amnesty has forged alliances and shared platforms with groups which do not necessarily share its original aims.

Controversy over Amnesty’s relations with Cage goes back five years, when Gita Sahgal, a senior figure in Amnesty, was sacked for criticising her organisation’s close ties to Moazzam Begg, a British former detainee of the Americans in Afghanistan and then in Guantánamo, and a director of Cage (formerly Cageprisoners).

Cage describes itself as “an independent advocacy organisation working to empower communities impacted by the war on terror.” Ms Sahgal, however, has long argued that Cage is by no means a human-rights group but a promoter of violent jihad against the West and against non-Islamists in general. She has derided a claim by another former senior Amnesty figure a few years ago that Cage’s promotion of “defensive jihad” is “not antithetical to human rights”.

3. ISIS bulldozes ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in Iraq

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group began bulldozing the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in Iraq on Thursday, the government said, in the jihadists’ latest attack on the country’s historical heritage.

ISIS “assaulted the historic city of Nimrud and bulldozed it with heavy vehicles,” the tourism and antiquities ministry said on an official Facebook page.

An Iraqi antiquities official confirmed the news, saying the destruction began after noon prayers on Thursday and that trucks that may have been used to haul away artefacts had also been spotted at the site.

“Until now, we do not know to what extent it was destroyed,” the official said on condition of anonymity.

(Understanding islam is easy. Just think of the most vile, awful, anti-human, anti civilization things you can and put them all together and you will be nearly exactly right)

4. McGill University gym women-only hours proposal causes uproar

Muslim demands we change everything to suit islam, nothing to do with islam

When student Soumia Allalou, 23, decided to get back into shape, she contacted the university’s gym and asked when women-only hours were. She was surprised to find that there was no such thing.

“Personally I prefer to work out in a women-only environment. I just kind of assumed they would have women-only hours. I asked them if there was a project for that in the works and they said that they didn’t think so,” said Allalou, who wears a hair covering and cites religious reasons for her preference. She took to Facebook to voice her concerns.

5. Noam Chomsky, a person who I thought had become so irrelevant that no one really gave a fig what he thought about anything as its so damn predictable, feels that all the islamic terror we have seen is indeed because of oppression, poverty and all the usual Marxist distractions from reality as we might expect from him.

6. Saudi Arabia Facebook Arrest: Religious Police Detain Indian Citizen For ‘Offensive’ Hindu Mecca Photo

An Indian citizen has been arrested in Saudi Arabia for allegedly posting offensive religious images on Facebook, Gulf News reported on Tuesday. The man was detained by Saudi religious police after reportedly posting a photo of Mecca’s Grand Mosque and its iconic black “Ka’aba” cuboid replaced with Hindu religious symbols.

A Saudi national reportedly alerted the country’s religious police, officially known as the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, after seeing the image, which prompted an investigation, according to Gulf News. The man accused of posting the photo was arrested at the airport by police under the country’s anti-cyber crime law, which bans the promotion of offensive pictures.

(In keeping with the modern tradition of submitting to islamic sensitivities by the world’s media, the IB Times does not have the offensive photo in question in their article. The IB Times like everyone except possibly the Daily Mail, is determined to send humanity back to the drag ages.)

7. Islington knife murder of cyclist, 15, caught on CCTV

Police have released CCTV footage of the moment a 15-year-old boy was fatally stabbed while he was cycling with friends.

Alan Cartwright, from Islington, north London, was attacked near Copenhagen Street in the borough, last Friday.

The teenager managed to cycle away but collapsed on nearby Caledonian Road and was pronounced dead at the scene.

8. Channel4 explains that Jihadi John was a great guy till someone said an unkind word to him or didn’t give him the right kind of X box on a birthday and so thats why he went to jihad.

10. This seems to be a well written and fairly complete explanation of islam and its ambitions by someone raised in Egypt and experienced the transformation of that country into a pure Islamic” one right before her eyes. This is one of those things you may want to keep the link and download to send to people who might just be starting to be open to understanding this issue.

Hijra: muslims moving into cooperative non-muslim areas in order to make them islamic by force, trickery, subversion and all means possible. Links 3 March 5 – 2015

1. Sharples High School chemistry teacher planned to commit ‘multiple acts of murder fighting alongside ISIS’

A CHEMISTRY teacher who planned to travel to Syria to fight alongside Islamic State prepared himself to commit “multiple acts of murder”, a court has heard.

Sharples High School teacher Jamshed Javeed was among a group of young Muslim men who became radicalised and “determined to fight Jihad” in 2013.

The 30-year-old helped his younger brother Mohammed and two other men join the terrorist group, also known as Isis, in Syria by providing money for flights as well as clothing and equipment, Woolwich Crown Court in London was told today.

2. This religiously motivated radio program has segments of Baroness Cox from the start to  23:30 and then from 33:50 to 39:50

3. Leeds imam: Islam not to blame for “deplorable acts” of sex grooming gangs

Mr Asim has written a piece reacting to a report published this week into child sexual exploitation (CSE) in Oxfordshire.

The serious case review found as many as 373 children may have abused by gangs of men in the county in the last 16 years.

It called for research into why those convicted in the case – and other high-profile cases in places like Rochdale and Rotherham – were of “Pakistani and/or Muslim heritage”.

But Mr Asim said it was “not credible to blame a whole community”. He added: “Some groups are exploiting the cases of sexual grooming and are linking the depraved actions of the perpetrators to Islam

(I would be willing to wager that none of the perps are Pakistani Christians)

4. In Midst of War, Ukraine Becomes Gateway for Jihad
Featured photo - In Midst of War, Ukraine Becomes Gateway for Jihad

“OUR BROTHERS ARE there,” Khalid said when he heard I was going to Ukraine. “Buy a local SIM card when you get there, send me the number and then wait for someone to call you.”

Khalid, who uses a pseudonym, leads the Islamic State’s underground branch in Istanbul. He came from Syria to help control the flood of volunteers arriving in Turkey from all over the world, wanting to join the global jihad. Now, he wanted to put me in touch with Ruslan, a “brother” fighting with Muslims in Ukraine.

The “brothers” are members of ISIS and other underground Islamic organizations, men who have abandoned their own countries and cities. Often using pseudonyms and fake identities, they are working and fighting in the Middle East, Africa and the Caucasus, slipping across borders without visas. Some are fighting to create a new Caliphate — heaven on earth.  Others — like Chechens, Kurds and Dagestanis — say they are fighting for freedom, independence and self-determination. They are on every continent, and in almost every country, and now they are in Ukraine, too.

5. “Independent tests show that Argentine special prosecutor Alberto Nisman was murdered, his family says.

At a news conference, Mr Nisman’s ex-wife said the findings ruled out the hypotheses of accident or suicide….

Ms Salgado, a federal judge, added that her report was at “the disposal of the prosecutor and judge” involved with the official investigation into Mr Nisman’s death….”

“I always have to be ready with a lie” The story of an apostate of Islam in Denmark

Original translation by Liberty Dk

From this major Danish news service

I always have to be ready with a lie

25-year-old Haifa lives two lives. One as a Muslim and one as an atheist.  She no longer believes in God, but does not dare to leave Islam. This is why she leads a double life, one where she lies about where she is and who she’s together with.  She tells her story in the hope that, some day, it will cease to be a taboo to leave Islam.

Told to Lark Cramon:

I was born in Denmark. I didn’t attend either nursery or kindergarten, so I started in elementary school without knowing a word of Danish. My classmates were almost all immigrants – maybe there were one or two Danes in my class. When I later switched to an Arabic free school, I only had Arabic classmates, and most of the teachers were Muslims. Twice a week I received Koranic teaching in the local mosque, where I had to learn the Koran by heart and every time I learned a new verse, my parents gave me a gift. In the Free School teachers said that it had been imposed on them to teach us about evolution and the Big Bang, but told us that we should remember that it was only a theory, and that God obviously had created the earth. I remember that I went home from school and told my mother everything I had learned about the beginning of the world and of man, who in fact had developed from apes. She was furious. “We don’t believe that” she said and made me promise that I would never mention Darwin and the monkeys again. I did not, but I began to read books that had to do with science.

The double standard favoring islam, not as disguised as it was: Links post 2 on March 5 – 2015

1. CANADA – Use Qur’an to Judge Me, Via Rail Terror Suspect Tells Jury

TORONTO—One of two men facing terrorism charges in an alleged plot to derail a passenger train offered his “sincere advice” to jurors hearing his case on Wednesday.

The Criminal Code is a “book written by humans” and “humans are not perfect,” Chiheb Esseghaier said in a unusual written closing address.

“That’s why I required the Holy Qur’an as unique reference of my trial and the judgement of all matter of people’s life,” he wrote to the jury.

Esseghaier and his co-accused, Raed Jaser, face several terror-related charges in the alleged plot to derail a train travelling from New York to Toronto.

(Wouldn’t it be a crazy world if we could all be judged by the standards we invent as we go along at all times. Sadly we may get to know what that’s like soon)

2. Envelopes with white powder found at offices of federal ministers in Quebec

(There may be a connection between the recipients of these envelopes and the closure of mosques and the anti-terrorism bill)

MONTREAL – Police in Quebec are investigating after envelopes containing white powder were sent to the riding offices of at least two federal ministers.

They say a third suspicious envelope has also been found in the riding office of another cabinet minister, Maxime Bernier.

The office of Infrastructure Minister Denis Lebel in Roberval, about 250 kilometres north of Quebec City, was evacuated this morning after an employee found white powder in an envelope.

Two employees who came into contact with the powder are still quarantined in the riding office as firefighters analyze the scene.

Another envelope containing white powder was found in the riding office of International Development Minister Christian Paradis in Thetford Mines, south of Quebec City.

A police spokeswoman says the person who came into contact with the substance has been transported to hospital.

(Other reports have said that the people who came in contact with the envelopes felt sick and were taken to hospital)

3. VICE News shows its bias again in its coverage of the PEGIDA march in the UK.

(If anyone is aware of a VICE news video talking about islamic religious leaders preaching death to America, the Jews, implementation of sharia law etc. etc. ad nauseam and titled, ‘Hate comes to Britain’ please let me know and I will post it right away to show that they are at least somewhat ‘balanced’ in their views. This despite the fact that opposing fascism does not ‘balance’ with those wishing to implement it)

4. National Post on PEGIDA in Quebec

7. Mother-of-two bit chunk out of fellow worshipper’s head at mosque ‘with a crunching sound’ and spat skin on the floor

(Funny but you hardly ever hear of that happening in Buddhist temples)

A mother-of-two who bit a chunk out of a fellow worshipper’s face at a mosque before spitting the skin out on the floor has been spared jail.

Suad Awad, 41, lunged at extended relative Amina Essa at Shepherd’s Bush Mosque in west London on May 4, 2013.

Ms Essa, who said she could ‘think of no reason why there could be bad blood between them’, was left needing plastic surgery for the wound above her left eye.

Awad, a Somali-born unemployed part-time student who lives in Shepherd’s Bush, has now pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm at Isleworth Crown Court.

Thank you M., Grace, Tommy Robinson, Richard, Draculea, Yucki and so many more. Pressure is increasing on all sides it seems. Hold the center ground. At the end of the day, what is true will prevail but the issue of how much damage gets done before that happens hinges on how many are calmly aware of what is true. The larger the number, the less damage the lies of the leftists or the muslims can do.

More to come.

is a ham sandwich and a beer a kind of prophylactic medication to stave off islam? Links 1 on March 5 – 2015

1. How the man behind group that called ISIS executioner Mohammed Emwazi ‘extremely kind’ and ‘a beautiful man’ called for Jihad during demonstration outside the US Embassy

A video has surfaced of the Muslim activist who described ISIS executioner Jihaji John as ‘a beautiful man’ calling for Jihad at an anti-US rally in London.

Asim Qureshi urged protestors to ‘support the jihad of our brothers and sisters’ in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Chechnya.

Speaking through a microphone at the the pan-Islamic Hizb ut-Tahrir movement rally, human rights group CAGE’s research director preached: ‘When we see the example of our brothers and sisters fighting in Chechnya, Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, then we know where the example lies.

(Go to the Daily Mail link for video)

Asim Qureshi urged protestors to 'support the jihad of our brothers and sisters' in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Chechnya in a speech made outside the US Embassy in London2. Qatari fatwa: Destroy Egypt’s pyramids, Sphinx!

A fatwa from a Qatari-owned online portal has been widely circulated by Egyptian press this week after it called for the destruction of pharanoic monuments on the grounds that they are contrary to Islam.

The religious edict, issued by Islam Web, was picked up by several independent Egyptian news outlets, such as Youm 7 and al-Fagr. It suggested the destruction of the historic monuments were a “religious duty” that Egyptians must fulfill.

2. France to double number of Islamic university courses

(Looking into translating related video now)

In a speech in the eastern French city of Strasbourg, Valls said that improving home-grown Islamic education was essential to defeating the ignorance that makes “Islamist extremism and the far right feed off each other”.

His speech follows January’s Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks and comes amid concern about the influence of radical foreign imams on Muslims in France, which has Western Europe’s biggest Muslim community.

The Socialist government is also worried about the increasing popularity of the anti-immigration and anti-Europe National Front party, which is coming top of the polls ahead of regional elections due to take place later this month.

“The rise of far-right populist politics, in Europe as well as in our own country, feeds directly off the rise of jihadism, terrorism and radical extremism,” he said. “It is a situation that puts our democracy, our society and our capacity to live together in extreme jeopardy.”

(Extraordinary example of Soviet style public reeducation to preserve a myth both dangerous and certainly unacceptable to much of the indigenous population. Also this has to be a violation of France’s strict secular laws called, ‘Laicete’ [sp])

3. Three men arrested in terror fraud probe linked to Syria

The arrests are part of a police probe into large-scale fraud linked to UK extremists travelling to Syria.

Two men, aged 29 and 23, were arrested at addresses in west and east London on suspicion of money-laundering, and have now been released on bail until April.

A third man, aged 37, was held in west London on suspicion of the same crime.

4. Douglas Murray: Hate Crimes: US Lynches the Facts

The police are now under serious pressure — as they were in the cases of Trayvon Martin and “Ferguson” — to attribute the crime to causes other than those they may actually think to be the case.

There are many difficulties with “hate crimes” legislation. But one of the worst is that it turns the law from being blind into being a tool that can be used not only to drive home a political vision, but one that can be used to ignore and even lobby to change facts.

While a lot of people seem not to want to recognize when Jews are killed as Jews, the truth is that a very great number of people appear to want Muslims or Blacks, when they are killed, to have been murdered because they were Muslims or Blacks.

This is the disturbing trend that seems to have fed into these moments of Presidential blindness.

5. Paris drones: New wave of alerts

(I have been avoiding posting the stories of drones over paris as a general rule because who wouldn’t want great aerial footage of Paris and its spectacular architecture etc. I would want that footage for sure and would try and get it if I was there. But in light of the Al Jazeera ‘journalists’ and constant alerts about it, I would think that most hobbyists would have cooled it for now so it seems more likely that the purpose is nefarious)

6. …and it continues over in Ferguson

The decision on whether to pursue charges in connection with the ransacking of the “Justice for Mike Brown” merchandise operation (seen above) is particularly sensitive since Lesley McSpadden, Brown’s mother, is named in a police report as one of the “attackers” who participated in the assault, which cops classified as a felony armed robbery.

7. Netanyahu’s Iran speech gains tacit support in Saudi Arabia

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s fiery speech this week before the U.S. Congress, in which he argued against an emerging nuclear deal with Iran, has received tacit support from an unlikely quarter — Saudi Arabia.

The oil-rich Sunni kingdom views Shiite Iran as a regional rival that is perhaps even more menacing than Israel.

That was clear in a string of columns this week published in Saudi state-linked media, which is widely seen as reflecting official views and mainstream thought in the kingdom, and which voiced skepticism of President Barack Obama’s efforts to broker a landmark nuclear agreement with Tehran.

 

 

Thank you Draculea, M., Wrath of Khan, Richard and all. Much more to come.

London: Professor halts immigration debate to blast Muslim leader as ‘Islamist who supports stoning’

IB Times:

Hundreds of people are watching a YouTube video of a London professor interrupting a university conference on immigration to protest against the presence of “an Islamist who supports stoning to death and sharia law“.

Professor Reza Moradi interrupted a talk organised by the University and College Union (UCU) held at the London Metropolitan University, to criticise the decision to invite Mohammed Kozbar, vice president of the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB), to take part in the discussion panel.

“MAB is what is known as a ‘soft’ Islamist organisation, normalising and justifying terrorism, the Caliphate and sharia rules,” Moradi wrote on his Facebook page after the incident.

“I am outraged that my union would share a panel with an Islamist organisation, despite its links with the Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, its defence of death by stoning for adultery and support of the death penalty for apostates such as me.

1. Concordia dean to meet with Muslim student group over library controversy

(For those that do not know, the controversy can be understood by watching this)

University prayer room activity. Permission for study hall in mosque denied however

Concordia University’s dean of students has called for a meeting with leaders of the university’s Muslim Students Association to discuss a television report that suggested the association’s library contains books and videos by “extremist preachers.”

The report, which aired on TVA on Friday, said the library, located in the Muslim Students’ Association building on Mackay St., “is in a modest setting but nonetheless has cutting-edge software that allows users to consult online books, (among which) TVA news found dozens of works by radical imams.”

2. Hillary Clinton: “I did not have sex with that cell phone”

3. If the US federal debt was one solid gold bar, how big would it be?

4. Long exchange between Sam Harris and Graeme Wood, who writes the The Atlantic on the subject at hand.  Graeme wrote that 10,000 word article on the nature of The Islamic State which has signaled a true change of the narrative in the USA.

5. Saudi Arabia executions now at ‘unprecedented rate’ after kingdom kills four more in two days

The rate of executions in Saudi Arabia has reached “unprecedented” levels, a charity has warned, as the kingdom killed four criminals in two days on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Amnesty International said the latest state-sanctioned deaths took its tally of executions for the year so far in Saudi Arabia to 39 – almost three times the equivalent number for this time last year.

Local media say the Saudi authorities have attempted to hail the killings as an example of the government’s commitment to “maintaining security and realising justice”, a crackdown in response to the rise of extremism and the threat of Isis.

But Amnesty’s Saudi Arabia researcher Sevag Kechichian said the growing number of executions was all the more worrying because of the lack of “rhyme or reason” behind it.

(One might argue that a love of music and life and dance is a fundamental attribute of any decent society. The exact opposite also holds)

(ANSAmed) – TEL AVIV – A video showing dozens of female Israeli soldiers in a merry flash-mob style dance at a military base in Neghev is going viral in Israel.
Inspired by Purim – the ongoing Jewish carnival – the soldiers from the ‘Yael’ battalion gathered in a square of the Zeelim base that simulates a Palestinian town (with two minarets in the background) and started dancing to the hip-hop rhythm of Flo Rida.

10. Light scrutiny of islamic charity fund raisers in Holland lead to a heavy list of speakers not in accordance with Dutch values or laws.

Two such soirees, ostensibly being staged to raise money for humanitarian aid to Syria, Palestine, and elsewhere in the Middle East and Asia, have raised controversy in the Netherlands in recent weeks. Nicknamed “jihad galas” by local media, both events have been forced to revamp their programs and venues after the government raised concerns about several of their invited speakers.

In the process, heightened focus on the two organizations has helped unveil a web of secrecy and deceit behind many such endeavors and the people who support them.

The first event, tentatively scheduled to take place in Utrecht on March 1, aims to raise funds for World Wide Relief (WWR), a Dutch-based organization that supports children in Syria, among others. The other, originally set for March 8 in Rijswijk and now planned as a live-stream event to be broadcast from an undisclosed location, will benefit Holland’s Rohamaa Foundation, a self-described “Islamic-inspired” charity that aids communities in Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt and Southern Turkey.

But according to a number of reports, the two groups, which claim to have each raised hundreds of thousands of euros from Dutch Muslims, have links to Salafist preachers and supporters of ISIS and al-Qaida.

11. Blast from the past. 100 years ago, a jihad attack in Australia

12. This is a really interesting article on the geopolitics of the Iranian deal where Iran, Obama’s admin, China etc. are properly placed in their analogies. It is not flattering to the USA but it strikes me as exceedingly well researched and presented.

Geopolitics: Perception of weak USA will change the global order? Links 4 on March 4 2015

1. Post-Gadhafi Libya now a jihadist springboard backed by Iran, Qatar, Sudan and Turkey

The consolidation of a self-proclaimed Caliphate in eastern Libya provides the jihadist camp with springboard into Africa and southern Europe.

That strategic thrust, supported strongly by Qatar, Sudan, Iran, and Turkey, has already begun, and highlights the transformation of the takfiri jihadist movements, the Muslim Brothers (Ikhwan), and many of the former Al Qaida movements.

Rome now a target: Security forces have bee deployed at selected sites due to terror threats from ISIL. / Winston Ross / Newsweek

Although jihadist forces occupied Tripoli in October 2011 — as a direct result of the Western military intervention which helped bring down the Moammar al-Gadhafi Administration in Libya — they failed to consolidate power and focus on all-Islamist causes. Subsequently, Libya sank into the still-escalating fratricidal fighting between a myriad of militias and localized forces.

2. U.S. Ambassador Lippert attacked in South Korea

March 2015: U.S. Ambassador Mark Lippert was attacked by an individual during a lecture in South Korea on Wednesday. The suspected assailant was detained by police. Lippert was taken to a hospital for treatment.

(One has to wonder if the serious degree to which Obama has weakened the United States isn’t responsible for every punk to think he can attack an ambassador. I suppose he should count himself lucky that he isn’t in Libya)

3. Documents from the Bin Laden compound show how Al Qaeda was planning to hijack the Arab Spring

(I would say they succeeded admirably)

As the so-called “Arab Spring” swept through the Muslim-majority world in 2011, some US officials and counterterrorism analysts proclaimed that al Qaeda had been left “on the sidelines.”

However, the limited selection of publicly-available documents captured in Osama bin Laden’s compound in May 2011 tell a different story. The al Qaeda chieftain and his subordinates saw an opportunity.

4.  Imam Who Said Ayaana Hirsi Ali Deserved Death Penalty Was Hired By DOJ To Teach Muslim Classes To Federal Prisoners

An Egyptian-born imam who in 2007 said that Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali should receive the death penalty for her criticism of Islam is now a Department of Justice contractor hired to teach classes to Muslims who are in federal prison.

According to federal spending records, Fouad ElBayly, the imam at Islamic Center of Johnstown in Pennsylvania, was contracted by the DOJ’s Bureau of Prisons beginning last year to teach the classes to Muslim inmates at Cumberland Federal Correctional Institution in Cumberland, Md.

5. RCMP to show Zehaf-Bibeau video on Friday

The RCMP obtained the video after the October attack, in which Zehaf-Bibeau shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo at the War Memorial and then stormed Parliament Hill, where he died in a shootout. […]

On Wednesday morning, the committee released a notice for the meeting which said it would receive a “briefing by the Commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to publicly display and discuss the video made by the individual who committed barbaric terrorist acts in Ottawa on Wednesday, October 22, 2014.”

However, within about 30 minutes, the committee abruptly changed the wording of that notice to tone down its language, remove the word “barbaric”, and simply say that Paulson would deliver a briefing “on a video” made by the person who “committed terrorists acts” on Oct 22, 2014.

Islamic influence, penetration and subversion and the false hope of Jews who cannot take a hint: Links 3 on March 4 – 2015

1. Muslim Holidays Are Now NYC Public School Holidays

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this morning that the Muslim holidays of Eid al-Adha and al-Fitr have been added to the NYC public school schedule, calling it “a change that respects the diversity of our city.”

During the Bloomberg administration, the City Council approved adding the holidays, but Mayor Bloomberg was against the measure, saying in 2008, “The truth of the matter is we need more children in school. More, not less,” and “When you have a city as diverse as we do, with virtually every religion known to man practiced, if we closed school for every single day there wouldn’t be any school.”

2. A story about a killing of a 7 year old daughter by the mother and her lesbian lover too weird for words.

(While this may not have anything to do with the usual islamic motives for killing children, or perhaps it does, the lack of taboo on killing children likely goes a long way to making something like this more likely. More here and here)

3. Pakistani man guilty in al-Qaida plot to attack NYC subway

NEW YORK (AP) — A Pakistani man was found guilty Wednesday in a failed al-Qaida bomb plot after a New York trial that featured spies in disguise, evidence from the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound and the defendant’s questioning of an admitted co-conspirator.

The jury reached the verdict in federal court in Brooklyn after beginning deliberations Tuesday morning. No date was set for sentencing.

Abid Naseer was first arrested in 2009 in Great Britain on charges he was part of a terror cell plotting to blow up a shopping mall in Manchester, England. The charges were dropped after a British court found there wasn’t enough evidence, but U.S. prosecutors later named him in an indictment that alleged a broader conspiracy that included a failed plot to attack the New York City subway.

5. House committee to subpoena e-mails from Clinton’s personal account

A House investigative committee is preparing to send out subpoenas later Wednesday to gather a deeper look into former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton’s nearly exclusive use of personal e-mails to do her official business as the government’s top diplomat, according to people familiar with the probe.

The House Select Committee on Benghazi, which first discovered Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail based on a home server in its inquiry into a fatal 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, is asking for all e-mails related to the attack from all Clintonemail.com accounts and any other staff members’ personal accounts.

Geopolitics, Islamic State and the odd contempt for American law by the American executive branch: Links 2 on March 4 – 2015

1. Muslim faith group finds device that protects from terrorism by using pig’s blood, apparently far more offensive than terrorism.

(I think for the rest of us, if a person invented a device that prevented terrorism by exploiting any phobia we may have, we would be fully grateful. Unless of course we supported terrorism. In which case, yes, we would find it offensive. In this case though it is fully defensive and therefore should be embraced, especially, one would imagine, by muslims who should be tired of being tarred with the terrorism brush. I suppose the real problem is that this device actually might protect against… jihad.)

“It will keep suicide bombers from blowing themselves up near the container of pig blood because they believe that they would be guaranteed not to go to heaven,” Lacy wrote.

The inventor even suggested spraying pig blood on the Israeli border to “eliminate terrorist infiltration”, seemingly failing to notice the Jewish taboo on pork products.

Fiyaz Mughal, director of the interfaith group Faith Matters, said the device has “been created by someone who seeks to humiliate specific faiths”.

“The patent is particularly troubling if used against Jews or Muslims, because it would be deeply offensive and insulting to their faith and beliefs,” Mughal continued

(Jews would likely not care because A. they aren’t committing terror and B. have no issue with pigs blood so long as it isn’t in the food)

2. France has issued warrants for three men wanted for 1982 attacks against a Jewish target

The men, believed to be former members of a radical Palestinian group, have been identified 33 years after the Rue des Rosiers assault.

They now live in Norway, Jordan and the occupied West Bank, French media say. […] The three men are said to have belonged to a group led by Palestinian militant Abu Nidal, which was active in the 1970-80s.

A grenade was launched inside the restaurant, seen here two days later, and gunmen opened fire inside

3. At last. A little good news. Seems Ms. Clinton is now disqualified, at least technically, from being president. More on how she ran this particular deception here. Someone who plays this fast and lose with the rules of course, likely won’t let this stop her as it didn’t stop the current president.

The existence of a personal account that Hillary Clinton used to conduct government business as secretary of state was discovered by the committee and reported by the New York Times.

Clinton’s use of this personal account explains why investigations of the Benghazi terrorist attack — and her culpability in our diplomatic mission’s vulnerability there, the failure to heed warnings and the cover-up afterward — failed to find much email evidence of her direct involvement.

Catching up but more to come. Some translations in the pipes for this week as well: Links 1 on March 4 – 2015

1. Marine Le Pen accepts Madonna drink invitation

(It is admirable when someone is ready to admit that a very public stand they have taken may have been wrong. Points to the singer for this one)

2. One of FBI’s most wanted terrorists captured in Somalia

Mogadishu. Somalia (CNN)A Somali-American on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list has been captured, Somali intelligence officials said Tuesday.

Liban Haji Mohamed was arrested as he traveled from an area controlled by terror group Al-Shabaab in southern Somalia.

The one-time cabdriver in northern Virginia is being held and interrogated by Somali officials.

3. Image captures light as both wave and particle for very first time

(Can this be the beginning of a new set of models on the nature of existence?)

4. Saudi Arabia awards preacher who says Muslims can have sex with slaves top prize and £130,000 for services to Islam

The king of Saudi Arabia has handed his country’s most-prestigious prize to a preacher who has previously said the Koran allows Muslims to have sex with female slaves.

Indian cleric Zakir Naik, who has also said 9/11 was an inside job, was handed the King Faisal International Prize for Services to Islam at a glittering ceremony in Riyadh.

A physician by training, the Mumbai-based 49-year-old has carved out a career as a charismatic television preacher, but his controversial views have led to him being banned from entering the UK.

And the winner is... Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz presents Zakir Naik, president of the Islamic Research Foundation in India, with the 2015 King Faisal International Prize for Service to Islam

5. Was it a hate crime? Fears gangs of Asian paedophiles who preyed on hundreds of vulnerable white girls were racially motivated as PM brands it ‘abuse on an industrial scale’ 

A total of 373 girls suffered sexual abuse in Oxfordshire, a report into ‘indescribably awful’ child sexual exploitation has found – and now fears have been raised that the abuse may have been racially motivated.

Over 15 years hundreds of victims as young as 11 were groomed, raped and forced into prostitution by gangs of men ‘predominantly of Pakistani heritage’, a serious case review has found.

The damning 114-page report said victims were in a ‘living hell from which they couldn’t extricate themselves’ after ‘hostile’ officials wrote some off as ‘difficult girls making bad choices’ when they begged for help.

6. UK children suffered sex abuse on ‘industrial scale’

7. UK Cops Turned Away Bleeding Girl Sexually Assaulted by Muslims

If only she had burned a Koran or said something insulting about Islam on the train. Then she would have been arrested and public enemy number one by the evening. But all she was, was a bloody reminder that the UK has become a colony of its colonists.

Nearly 400 girls may have been sexually exploited in Oxfordshire over a 16-year period, according to a report that has criticised authorities for failing to protect victims.

The Serious Case Review said a paedophile ring was able to rape and abuse six victims for five years because the girls’ complaints were not taken seriously. They were reported missing 500 times between 2005 and 2010, the review said.

One victim described how she turned up at a police station covered in blood in the early hours, but was ignored.

8. Jihadi John family’s 20 years on benefits: How it’s cost taxpayers up to £400k to house fanatic and his relatives in upmarket areas

Jihadi John and his asylum-seeking family have milked the British benefits system for 20 years, the Mail can reveal today.

Housing the Islamic State executioner and his relatives in affluent parts of London has cost taxpayers up to £400,000.

One landlord said Mohammed Emwazi’s family were ‘parasites’ and ‘tenants from hell’. Incredibly, they are still believed to be pocketing £40,000 a year in handouts despite there being no sign of them in Britain.

Leftism and Islam, the CBC lies by omission, extra pressure on the counter-jihad links 2 on March 3 – 2015

1. The power of Le Pen

2. PEGIDA march 03/03/2015

3. George Igler on CBN confronts the myth of the ‘far-right’ as a threat to the Jews of Europe and where it really comes from. From the new CBN video series, ‘Warnings’

4. Timmins, Ont.-born jihadist recruited 5 others for ISIS

Inspired by Andre Poulin’s apparent charisma and his message, five Toronto men followed him to Syria and ultimately into the arms of ISIS, CBC News has learned.

Poulin, from Timmins, Ont., converted to Islam and went by the name Abu Muslim. He joined the jihadist fight in Syria in 2012, in the process creating an 11-minute propaganda video for ISIS aimed at Westerners.

He died while fighting in northern Syria in the summer of 2013 at the age of 24.

5. Egyptian, likely a muslim, throws a dog off of a building. 

 

6. Many Democrats are not racing well to Bibi’s speech today.

7. Islamic State supporters threaten employees of social media who block their propaganda 

8. CSIS flags Canadian online anti-Islam threat in Public Safety briefing

Canada’s spy agency is eyeing the threat of a budding anti-Islam movement online.

CSIS flagged well-known warnings of the persistent menace posed by terrorist groups al-Qaida, Hezbollah and the more violent and radical Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, say notes obtained through the Access to Information Act.

But under the heading Domestic Extremism, the spy service also underscored what might be the flip side of that coin — the recent development “of a Canadian online anti-Islam movement, similar to ones in Europe.”

CSIS characterized it as an “ongoing risk, particularly as its proponents advocate violence.”

The Sept. 18 briefing for Blaney’s office came a little more than a month before soldiers were killed in Canadian attacks just two days apart — murders committed by young men that authorities say were motivated by Islamic extremism.

(CSIS needs to be reminded that immigration along with the economy and a few other subjects are the single most important determiners of the direction of a country. That to say those who disagree with the current notions of unlimited immigration open to people who are raised with a culture which seeks to destroy liberal democracy and individual rights and are diametrically opposed to the principles of the Enlightenment, are suggesting that we should not have anything like a democracy. Democratic nations specifically are about public input in critical policies. Targeting those who oppose public policies in a democratic way is opposing democracy)

9. CBC does radio segment on the British rape gang phenomenon. Sort of. They seemed to have omitted a thing or two from their report though.

Thank you M., Richard, Don C., CB Sashenka, ML., Wrath of Khan and numerous other people thoughtful enough to send in news stories that need to be seen in the greater context. It is somewhat appalling that CSIS is pretending that any online resistance to islamic jihad in its various forms in order to preserve our own history, law and culture is in any way equatable to islamic manifest destiny. Unless they are speaking about some sites and people I am unfamiliar with.

That being said, after reading reports of how truly awful Islamic motivated behaviour against unbelievers and even their own children can be, it is easy to lose one’s temper and post things out of shock and horror on sites like this one which may seem to counsel or indicate violence. It would be a good time to take a deep breath and make all comments in the most rational manner I suspect as CSIS, like the British enforcement, is probably itching to make an example of some other group in order to make a bogus claim of some kind of ‘balance’. Best if its none of us.
