Peace tunnels in Toronto and reasonable Jews in France: Links 1 for Feb. 24 – 2015

Before I get on with the first post of today’s news I would like to offer a prediction about today’s police press conference on the ‘peace tunnel’ that was discovered in Toronto yesterday.

It will be a good news bad news scenario. The bad news is that the conference will be full of the usual calming, reassuring nonsense completely bereft of content or value. The good news is it won’t be too long.

1. Does jihad influence the culture?

(Link to FB video of Egyptian kids playing at decapitation)

2. France’s Jewish and Muslim leaders fall out

(Usually its Jewish people who fall out of things after being pushed by muslims)

France’s Muslim leaders boycotted a dinner by the country’s most prominent Jewish group after its leader blamed young Muslims for anti-Semitic violence, adding that the National Front leader Marine Le Pen was “blameless” when it comes to anti-Semitism.

The dinner was marked by the absence of the rector of the Great Mosque of Paris, Dalil Boubakeur, outraged over comments by Jewish leader, Roger Cukierman, blaming young Muslims for anti-Semitic violence.

In an interview with French radio station Europe 1 earlier on Monday, Cukierman said: “All violence, and we must say this, all violent acts today are committed by young Muslims. Of course, that’s a small minority of the Muslim community and the Muslims are the first victims,” he added.

To further anger Muslim leaders he supported the use of the term “Islamo-fascism”, which was first uttered by Prime Minister Manuel Valls earlier this month.

3. Girlfriend of jihadi fighter faces jail for sending him £1,000 to fund his terrorist activities in Syria

Turay, 28, fled the UK in 2012 after converting to Islam. He is wanted by British police on attempted murder charges said to have been committed before he travelled to Syria.

During a two week trial, jurors heard how Khan, sent him £1,000 via Western Union transfer after telling him he looked ‘beautiful’ in a photograph taken with the Islamic State flag.

She received three other photographs of children, thought to be under 10, posing with weapons in Aleppo.

The 23-year-old was found guilty of two charges of funding terrorism. Anton Atkins, 31, was cleared of four charges of funding terrorism involving combat trousers and a total of £1,600.

4. Expert Says Al-Shabaab Threat Against Jewish-Owned Malls Shows Increased Jihadi Focus on Jewish Targets

(For an expert, it looks like he hasn’t been paying attention much since before Mumbai)

5. Islamic State attacks Christian villages, captures dozens, burns churches

Hassaka, Syria (AINA) — Fighting broke out at 5 AM today between ISIS and Assyrian and Kurdish fighters in the Hasaka province in northeast Syria. ISIS attacked the Assyrian villages of Tel Goran, Tel Hurmiz, Tel Tamar, Tel Baloaa Tel Shamiran, Tel Riman, Tel Nasra, Tel Khareta, and Abu Tena. The ISIS fighters were met by members of Assyrian Guards (called Natorehs), an Assyrian Militia, and Kurdish fighters form YPG. 4 Assyrian fighters were killed as well tens of ISIS fighters. According to the latest reports, fighting is still ongoing in Tel Tamar.

6. Dr.Andy Bostom interviewed by Michael Dukes on AM700 KBYR 23.2.2015

7. French Jews turn to Le Pen after Muslim attacks

(At last! Reason percolates into the official Jews)

French Jews are ready to discard decades of distrust of the far right by voting for the National Front as a bulwark against radical Islam.

While at least 14 per cent of France’s Jewish community is expected to back the National Front in presidential elections in 2017, the political leader of France’s Jewish community publicly endorsed Marine Le Pen yesterday, insisting that her political leadership of the far-right party had been beyond reproach.

Hundreds of attacks against French soldiers in front of Jewish inst., mystery tunnel in Toronto who does Obama love? Links 2 on Feb. 23 – 2015

1. Sweden’s Multicultural Center Expert on Islamophobia Joins ISIS 

Michael Nikolai Skråmo aka Abo Ibrahim Al Swedi probably didn’t need a job. He was trained as a chef before he converted to Islam.

The 29-year-old Swede, who today calls himself “Abdul Samad al Swedi”, grew up in Gothenburg. He converted to Islam during a field trip to Egypt about ten years ago and has since been engaged in a series of tax-funded Muslim organizations.

In 2009 he was invited to SVT, where he told Swedish viewers how Muslim phobia (Islamophobia) and hatred was spread around Europe.

Previously, the Swede have been heavily involved to counter what he described as a misleading picture of Muslims as violent fanatics. In an episode of SVT debate, which can be seen on Youtube, he attacked the malicious picture of Muslims spread in Europe.

“This fear is based on ignorance of Islam,” Michael Skråmo said.

Obviously. If only people truly knew what Islam was.

As a lecturer Abdul Samad has mainly been active in the radical Bellevue Mosque in Gothenburg. There he held a series of sermons on the association Multicultural Youth Center (MKUC), notorious for four youth leaders of the Association, including president of the association , once armed with knives attempted to attack Lars Vilks in an art event at Red Rock in Gothenburg. It is worth noting that sermons should have been co-arranged with the wide Muslim educational association Ibn Rushd. Abdul Samad has also been linked to the Swedish Federation of Muslims , also a compound of radical preachers, located at the Bellevue Mosque.

And then he took the inevitable next step.

2. Why Swedish police with machine guns are guarding Jewish schools

3. Daniel Greenfield: Does Obama Love America or Islam?

In his first days in office, he signed a number of executive orders. Of his first five orders, three involved Muslim terrorists captured and held in Gitmo. His third executive order was about the “humane” treatment of terrorists. His fourth executive order sought to close Gitmo. Like the man who can’t wait to get away from his wife so he can call his mistress, Obama made his priorities clear from the start.

It took Obama a month to set up the Economic Recovery Advisory Board. It took him two days to set up a Special Interagency Task Force on Detainee Disposition to free Gitmo terrorists.

Obama prioritized helping Muslim terrorists over the economic recovery. Why? Because that was a subject he was passionate about.

4. France: hundreds of attacks against soldiers, mostly guarding Jewish institutions

The army has reported 371 incidents perpetrated against the soldiers standing guard in front of the protected sites. The Defense Ministry has announced that the men will become more mobile, rendering them less vulnerable.

The army noted that “reconnoitering, the taking of snapshots and films” by jihadists preparing future attacks had been going on. “Fourteen serious attacks, with a knife, laser, even blows with heavy sticks,” were reported. One jihadist tried to grab the rifle of a soldier on patrol at Trocadéro (Paris) before being caught (and probably released).

5. Palestinian groups face $218m Israel attacks fine in US

A US court in New York has found the Palestine Liberation Organization and the Palestinian Authority liable for attacks in Israel over 10 years ago.

Six attacks in and around Jerusalem killed 33 people and wounded hundreds more during the second Palestinian intifada between 2002 and 2004.

The jury awarded victims of the attacks more than $218m.

The Palestinian groups expressed dismay at the court’s decision and vowed they would appeal.

Mystery tunnel found near Pan Am Games venue

Toronto Canada

From CBC

National security officials have been notified that an underground tunnel was discovered near a venue for this summer’s Pan Am Games in Toronto, CBC News has learned.

The tunnel was dug in the woods near Toronto’s Rexall Centre and York University’s Keele campus. It was large enough for a person to stand in, at around 2½ metres in height, and was about seven metres long. The tunnel had lights inside, powered by a generator, and the walls and ceiling were reinforced.

Iran.

1. Iran, Hezbollah Reportedly Backing Al-Qaeda Attacks Against US Interests in the Middle East

Iran and Hezbollah have been supervising and funding fighters linked to Al-Qaeda to target US interests in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan, independent Lebanese online newspaper Naharnet reported on Sunday citing a breaking report from pan-Arab daily Asharq Al-Awsat.

Sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that Iran is playing a central role in running the affairs of Al-Qaeda, and even, surprisingly, Jabhat al-Nusra, after it has taken in a number of leading fighters in order to plan terrorist attacks against these US interests.

The sources confirmed that the fighters have been moving between Iranian cities, including Tehran, Meshad and Zahdan. Meanwhile, Iran’s Lebanese proxy Hezbollah has been taking care of planning and providing them with financing.

2. Phased US-Iran nuclear deal taking shape

GENEVA (AP) — The United States and Iran are working on a two-phase deal that clamps down on Tehran’s nuclear program for at least a decade before providing it leeway over the remainder of the agreement to slowly ramp up activities that could be used to make weapons.

Officials from some of the six-power talks with Iran said details still needed to be agreed on, with U.S. and Iranian negotiators meeting Monday for the third straight day ahead of an end-of-March deadline for a framework agreement. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry joined the negotiations after arriving Sunday.

3. Iran Press: Obama desperate for a nuclear deal

How are the ongoing nuclear negotiations between the U.S. and Iran playing out in the Iranian press? Well, the U.S. is being portrayed as desperate.

 

In an article by Press TV, an Iranian propaganda organ, the headline reads, “Obama ‘under pressure’ to reach nuclear agreement with Iran: Analyst.”

US President Barack Obama is “under pressure” to reach an agreement with Iran over Tehran’s nuclear energy program, an American foreign policy analyst says.

“It’s quite obvious to everyone that Mr. Obama would like to have a deal with Iran,” said James George Jatras, a former US diplomat and adviser to the Senate Republican leadership.

Australia takes a stab at the obvious while the UK selectively enforces against their own laws: Links 1 on Feb. 23 – 2015

1. The response to islamic terrorism and imposed sharia fascism is a government mandated technically operated totalitarianism, not limited to fighting against islamic ideological war. all this to preserve the illusion that islam is not the problem.

2. Two interesting links about Australia and Islamic terror.

2a. The government has decided to begin applying rational solutions to a problem with obvious answers. Something tells me that they will experience a lot of negative pressure from the US, the EU and UN.

2b. A dozen calls were made to a terrorism hotline about the fellow who took the hostages at the Lindt store in Oz.

4. Gateshead TA cadet-beheading threats: Man given suspended jail sentence

A man who threatened to “chop the heads off” two female cadets on Tyneside has been given a suspended jail sentence.

The incident happened at about 21:25 GMT on 21 January when the teenage girls left the TA centre in Gateshead.

Gateshead magistrates heard how driver Marius Dura lent across his passenger and said: “Are yous in the Army because we will chop your heads off.”

Dura, 26, admitted threatening behaviour and received a six-week jail term suspended for a year.

The second man, who was in the Opel Zafira car with Dura during the incident, has yet to be traced

(This person got 56 days in jail though And this person This guy got 16 months in jail. Anyone think a rule can be derived from this?)

5. ISIS vow to take over Rome and ‘throw homosexuals off of your leaning tower of PIZZA’

Earlier this year, images emerged that appeared to show militants hurling one man off a building in the town of Tal Abyad in Raqqa as supposed punishment for having a ‘homosexual affair’.

This most recent threat appears to indicate the terrorists intend to bring their barbaric practices to Europe – and plan to repeat the horrific scenes off the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

It appears the tweeter is unaware the tower is in Pisa, not Rome. 

The hashtag #We_Are_Coming_O_Rome has been used by Islamic State supporters to discuss plans to reach Rome after the city was mentioned in a sickening video released earlier this week.

The picture is of the five first line US nuclear carriers docked together in one place. Just
like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor , December 7, 1941.

This picture was taken the February 2014 in Norfolk , Virginia. Obama ordered
5 nuclear carriers into harbor for “routine” (?) inspections. Heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive but had to comply as it was a direct
order from their Commander-in-Chief.
The carriers were all pulled out from the MIDDLE EAST and the Afghanistan
support role leaving our land forces naked and exposed without the air support
needed to carry out their missions.!
NORFOLK, VA. (February 8, 2014). This is the first time since WWII that five
aircraft carriers were docked together. (These are all nuclear carriers).
USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69),
USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77),
USS Enterprise (CVN 65),
USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75),
and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72)
are all in port at Naval Station Norfolk , Va. , the world’s largest naval station.
Knowledgeable sources stated that this breached a long standing military
protocol in the Navy meant to avoid a massive enemy strike on major US forces.

More attempts to alert the general public that Islam is a cancerous ideology and needs to be understood the way an oncologist understands bad cells. Links 4 on Feb. 22 – 2015

1. Austrian Islam bill stirs feelings of alienation

The bill contains several provisions that will make life easier for the nearly 600,000 Muslims among Austria’s 8.6 million inhabitants, the second-largest religious group behind Catholics.

For example, Muslim clerics gain the right to visit hospital patients, soldiers and prisoners. In addition, schools and other public institutions will have to offer food in line with Muslim rules.

On the other hand, the bill stresses that national law stands above Muslim sharia law, a provision that is absent in Austrian laws governing other religions.

2. Child sex scandal council hires ‘mentors’ linked to hard-liners

Abdul Haqq Baker

8:30AM GMT 22 Feb 2015

The council which failed scores of girls abused by a sex grooming ring has hired a radical Islamic group to “mentor” potential abusers from the Muslim community.

The group, Street UK, also has links to the Trojan Horse plot, in which hard-line Muslims sought to Islamise state schools and push out secular head teachers.

The contract is part of Oxfordshire County Council’s response to Operation Bullfinch, which saw seven men convicted of 59 sex crimes against children and sentenced to a total of 95 years in prison. Five were of Pakistani origin and two were North African.

3. Group Wants ND House GOP to Apologize for Canceling Prayer

(Because it wouldn’t be Easter without muslims praying for the defeat of Christians at a legislature)

The largest Muslim civil liberties group in the U.S. wants North Dakota House Republicans to apologize for canceling a Muslim’s opening floor session prayer on Ash Wednesday and having a Christian deliver the invocation instead.

Dr. Nadim Koleilat, a surgeon in Bismarck and president of the city’s Muslim Community Center, went across the hall and delivered the invocation to the state Senate, without objection from the lawmakers in that chamber.

4. Saudi king: ‘terrorism fueled international opinion against Islam’

Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz on Sunday denounced terrorism and radical Islamists who he said were not only “threatening Muslims” but also tainting and vilifying the image of Islam to non-Muslims.

King Salman’s statement was presented by Prince Khaled al-Faisal bin Abudlaziz, the royal’s Makka region advisor at the opening of an international conference titled “Islam and Combatting Terrorism” that is organized by the international Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC).

King Salman described “Muslim nations” as being “threatened by the infiltration of Islamized terrorism with its killing, oppression, pillaging and other ranges of aggression that have trespassed the borders of our Islamic world.”

(Perhaps if he stopped funding them and preaching to do terrorism, they may stop tarnishing the image of islam amongst it’s victims)

5. Al-Azhar refuses to consider the Islamic State an apostate

The sheikh of Al-Azhar, Ahmed al-Tayeb, repeated his rejection of declaring IS apostates on Jan. 1, during a meeting with editors-in-chief of Egyptian newspapers. This sparked criticism from a number of religious, political and media parties, especially since Al-Azhar could have renounced the Nigerian mufti’s statement on IS without addressing the issue of whether or not Al-Azhar considers the group apostates.

(Someone should really tell Obama about this)

6. The question of the next attack which will be done by a lone muslim and has nothing to do with islam but is likely coordinated by the Islamic State and the OIC at the UN, can probably be determined from information on this website. It includes a 75 minute video of Stephen Coughlin however, explaining the OIC’s plans to normalize and enforce blasphemy laws world wide for islam. So this isn’t a quick click-and-read. This will be an all day research project. But I suspect for some people in a Jewish institution somewhere and someone who believes in Free speech, possibly including burning korans, it may be worth the time to check out this page.

7. CBC is reporting that the Al Shabab video, posted here the other day, threatens to attack the West Edmonton Mall.

(As I understand it, the WEM has 2 submarines which means it has better defenses per capita than Canada as a whole!)

Obama kept reform Muslims out of summit on extremism

From The Washington Examiner

The White House excluded members of a prominent group of reformist Muslims from its terror summit this week, apparently because President Obama rejects their argument that such groups as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria are actually motivated by Islam.

A group of 23 prominent Muslim reformers signed a full-page ad in the Sunday New York Times on Jan. 11 asking “What can Muslims do to reclaim their ‘beautiful religion’?”

But Obama and officials throughout his administration deny any connection between Islam and the terrorists beheading and burning their victims in a reign of terror in the Middle East.

Muslim reformers say the administration is ignoring them because they disagree with Obama’s refusal to acknowledge the Islamic roots of the extremists’ ideology.

Some of the most prominent reformers have argued for years that the ideological and theological roots of Islamist extremism must be addressed, but administration officials carefully avoided exactly that subject during Obama’s three-day summit.

More islamic deception and destructive actions. Take a prophylactic antibiotic and read links 3 on Feb. 22 – 2015

1. Immigration Street: TUC calls for Channel 4 to drop documentary

(Something tells me that there is far more to the story not being told than the odd hints that are. One example might be that it is a union which wants the show dropped and probably forced it to be modified. This might indicate that unions are now more about communist and islamic politics than they are about representing the interests of the laborers that pay for it)

The leader of Britain’s trade union movement has called for Channel 4’s Immigration Street documentary to be shelved.

The programme, due to be broadcast on Tuesday, has been criticised by residents of Derby Road in Southampton where it was filmed.

TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said it would “encourage social division and hostility”.

Channel 4 insisted the street would be “represented fairly and accurately”.

The show was originally intended to be a six-part series but will now broadcast as one hour-long episode after filming was disrupted by protests.

2. Half a million protest against Kirchner in Argentina

(AGI) Buenos Aires, Feb 19 – Hundreds of thousands of people, as high as 500,000 according to some local police estimates, have taken to the streets in Buenos Aires in a colossal protest against President Cristina Kirchner. Federal police gave a far lower estimate of 50,000. The demonstration, held with symbolic silence, is taking place a month after the death of Alberto Nisman, a public prosecutor who accused Kirchner of covering up a 1994 terrorist attack against a Jewish centre

3. Somalia extremists urge attacks on US shopping malls

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — A video purported to be by Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked rebel group al-Shabab urged Muslims to attack shopping malls in the U.S., Canada, Britain and other Western countries.

In the video, released late Saturday, the extremist group again said its September 2013 attack on the Westgate Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, was in reprisal for Kenyan military involvement in Somalia. Sixty-seven people died in the attack. The video, using footage from major news organizations, showed the assault on the mall.

The masked narrator of the 76-minute video warned of more attacks in Kenya and concluded by calling on Muslims to attack shopping malls, specifically mentioning the Mall of America in Minnesota, the West Edmonton Mall in Canada and the Westfield mall in Stratford, England.

The authenticity of the video could not be immediately verified by The Associated Press.

The narrator, his face wrapped in a black-and-white kaffiyeh-type scarf and wearing a camouflage jacket, spoke with a British accent and appeared to be of Somali origin. He accused Kenyan troops in Somalia of committing abuses against Somali Muslims.

4. Young girl suicide bomber kills several in northeastern Nigeria

Witnesses and hospital sources said a total of six people were killed after she triggered the explosive devise in a market in the northeastern city of Potiskum on Sunday.

“(She) refused to be checked at the gate to the market and an argument ensued,” witness Ibrahim Maishago told the Reuters news agency by telephone. “She let off the bomb, killing herself and five others, while many were injured.”

The AFP news agency cited a local vigilante leader, who said that in addition to the six killed, 19 others had been rushed to hospital suffering from varying degrees of injury.

Both wire services cited witnesses who said the girl appeared to be only seven or eight years old.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing, but since last year, the Islamist militant group Boko Haram has been known to use female and child suicide bombers to carry out attacks.

5. BBC does story about ring of 1000 muslims protecting Oslo Synagogue after another muslim shot 2 people dead there. Photo only shows about 11

5b. Breitbart explains why the photo only shows about 11

(Showing that the BBC, Vice news most likely, and nearly all mass media short of FOX, Breitbart and The Daily Mail should be viewed as enemy propaganda)

The weekend’s feel-good story about a Muslim “ring of peace” formed to “protect” Jews at an Oslo synagogue turned out to be a complete fabrication by the mainstream media, according to an eyewitness report, local officials, and attendees’ photos.

According to a local eyewitness, only about 20 or so Muslims formed the “ring of peace” around the Oslo synagogue. In fact, pictures from multiple angles show that there wasn’t enough people to form a ring, so the locals instead formed a horizontal line in front of the synagogue.

6.  Two men who raped a vulnerable Polish tourist in a London park just hours after she had arrived in the UK have each been jailed for 14 years.

Mojtaba Changi, 33, of Lea Bridge Road, Walthamstow, and Saeed Fatemi, 20, of Blackthorn Court, Hall Road, Leyton, were sentenced at Kingston Crown Court on Thursday.

Egypt increases pressure on Ikhwan, Stephen Coughlin interview on new book and the Mayor of Jerusalem is a real action hero

1. Egypt charges 215 Muslim Brotherhood supporters

(Obama should reconsider any plans to holiday in Sharm el-Sheikh)

Egypt has charged 215 supporters of the banned Muslim Brotherhood with forming a militant group.

The country’s chief prosecutor accused the group – known as the Helwan Brigades – of killing six policemen and possessing weapons and ammunition.

More than half of those charged are already in custody.

Thousands of Muslim Brotherhood members have been arrested since then-army head Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ousted the group from power in 2013 and later banned it.

Mr al-Sisi was elected president last year and continued the campaign against the brotherhood and other Islamist groups.

3. Interview with Stephen Coughlin: National Security Expert: U.S. Foreign Policy Leaders ‘Have Lost The Ability To Think’

From his time briefing generals in the Pentagon, Stephen Coughlin — a leading expert on national security and author of the soon-to-be-published book, “Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad” — has always feared for our nation’s safety and thinks it’s time for the government to stop lying.

Coughlin is an attorney, decorated intelligence officer and expert on Islamic law and terrorism. He says the “entire world, friend and foe alike, understands, that starting with the Bush administration and accelerating in the Obama administration, that our foreign policy community is absolutely incoherent and completely vulnerable. These people have lost the ability to think.”

2. Swedish employment center was sending people to the Islamic State to fight jihad.

3. Homeland Security chief: Be ‘vigilant’ at malls

The secretary of Homeland Security on Sunday warned shoppers at Minnesota’s iconic Mall of America and similar venues to be vigilant in the wake of new terrorist threats.

“I’m not telling people to not go to the mall,” Secretary Jeh Johnson said on NBC’s Meet The Press. “I think that there needs to be an awareness.”

He also said, “I’m saying that the public needs to be particularly vigilant.”

Mall of America says it has heightened security after a video threatening a terror attack was apparently released by a Somali militant group with ties to al-Qaeda. The group, al-Shabaab, previously took responsibility for the 2013 attack at the Westgate shopping mall Nairobi, Kenya, that left more than 60 people dead.

The destruction of classical education means the concept of ‘standard of evidence’ is not understood: Links 1 on Feb. 22 – 2015

The topic is the end point of my personal curiosity as to why people no longer, perhaps if they ever could, interpret what they see into evidence. One would expect that everyone by now would have some decent notion of the facts of Islam and leftism.

1. Islamic State produces child training camp video.

(I see a lot of future Nobel Peace Prize winners in this group. Because by the time they are adults it will likely be the Nobel religion of peace prize and be awarded for quality of jihad)

2. No hate crime charges for Detroit Muslim who stabbed 2 after asking them their religion

(There are at least two significant reasons not to have thought crimes in a free nation. One is that there already is in law, a significant margin for a judge to factor in motive when passing sentence for a crime. But the other is that thought crimes are made for selective enforcement. Thanks mostly to Islam and leftist identity politics concerning dark skinned people, the thought-crime elements of a charge seem to be applied one way and without regard to the facts of a given case. Parking disputes become a hate crime and stabbing people for being non muslims are not Etc.)

A Michigan prosecutor has declined to charge a Detroit Muslim with a hate crime after allegedly stabbing two other individuals at a bus stop because of religious differences.

Terrence Lavaron Thomas

The defendant, Terrence Lavaron Thomas, 39 and a Muslim, “asked the victims what religion they were” before he reportedly stabbing them, Nick Loussia, Deputy Chief of Police for the Southfield Police Department told Michigan Live.

3. It would appear the Saudi funded outreach, more accurately the Saudi operated Islamic injection site, is running into problems due to lashing of bloggers in the Kingdom while it peddles tolerance of Islam in Austria.

4. National Director of the Anti-Defamation League Abe Foxman, claims that if Jews left Europe Hitler wins.

(The headline is ludicrous as is the idea that doing something that one of the billions of people who ever lived would like that thing they win. But overall there is more rational thought than I expected)

5. Oslo synagogue ‘peace ring’ organizer blamed Jews for 9/11

(Apparently the idiot rabbi of the mosque also screamed allah hu ackbar. Optics has clearly trumped reality and history)

6. Interesting CNN guest, the author of the now nearly seismic Atlantic article, who tilts towards the Islamic State being authentically islamic. While this is not living fully in reality, for CNN this is at least checking out the view from the bridge to it.

7. Islamic ‘radicals’ at the heart of Whitehall

Baroness Warsi, the first Muslim woman to sit in Cabinet, handed official posts to people linked to Islamist groups, including a man involved in an “unpleasant and bullying” campaign to win planning permission for the controversial London “megamosque” proposed by a fundamentalist Islamic sect.

He sits – alongside other radicals or former radicals and their allies – on a “cross-Government working group on anti-Muslim hatred” set up by Lady Warsi and Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister.

Some members of the group are using their seats at the table to urge that Whitehall work with Islamist and extremist-linked bodies, including one described by the Prime Minister as a “political front for the Muslim Brotherhood”.

8.Mogadishu hotel suicide bombers were Dutch – Somalia

Somali intelligence believe both suicide bombers – a man and a woman – were Dutch-Somali citizens who infiltrated the Central Hotel close to the presidential palace ahead of the attack.

Sources within the Somali National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) said the man, identified as Ismail Muse, exploded a bomb in a car parked at the hotel while the woman, Lula Ahmed Dahir, detonated her explosive vest inside the hotel’s prayer room.

The woman “worked part time in the hotel for up to four months,” according to an intelligence report seen by AFP.

The fog of war or the stench of islam? You decide. Links 3 on Feb. 21 – 2015

1. Part of fundamentally transforming America is controlling what you eat and what you do in your leisure time, presumably when you aren’t at the mosque.

2. Niqab ban during oath of citizenship escalating into a full-fledged pre-election issue

In her affidavit filed with the court, Ms. Ishaq wrote that through research, she came to the conclusion that wearing a niqab was “mandatory to my faith” and “integral to the modesty that a Muslim woman must show.” (Only a small minority of Muslim women wear niqabs in Canada.)

(I find that paragraph very revealing. Nonetheless the government of Canada is using the wrong argument. The correct one is that it is or should be illegal to wear a disguise in a government building or while undergoing any sort of identification or certification process. It makes exactly no difference if that disguise is a burka or a rubber Nixon mask)

3. Twisted new ISIS video shows ‘Kurdish Peshmerga’ fighters paraded in cages through the streets and interviewed by their captors who hint heavily that death awaits

In the latest propaganda video from Islamic State, hostages are paraded in cages through the packed streets of Iraq to cheers and jeers.

But in a cruel twist, the orange jumpsuit-clad prisoners are interviewed by their captors – ahead of their presumably grim fate.

The nine-minute video allegedly shows 21 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, who are paraded through the crowded streets of the Iraqi province of Kirkuk, before being seemingly marched to their deaths


(And somehow mysteriously American weapons found their way to these guys again)

4. Full interview with Taqyyia artist, Omar Shahin.

5. On police advice, Berlin Jewish magazine now delivered in plain envelope

The Jewish community in Berlin sends to their approximately 10,000 members a monthly magazine entitled “Jewish Berlin”.

This newsletter is sent by post. Up until now it was placed in the mailbox directly, with only an address label. Starting this month, it is in a plain envelope. You pull it out of the mailbox and do not know what’s inside.

6. Federal government of Venezuela arrests the Mayor of Caracas!

CARACAS, Venezuela — The abrupt arrest of the mayor of Caracas on accusations that he had plotted an American-backed overthrow of the government threatened to plunge Venezuela into new political convulsions on Friday, as his supporters rallied in the capital and pockets of protest erupted elsewhere.

The arrest of the mayor, Antonio Ledezma, on Thursday evening by intelligence agents who fired weapons in the air, was viewed by the opposition as the kidnapping of a political rival to President Nicolás Maduro.

Mr. Ledezma’s backers called it another assault on democracy in Venezuela, the oil-endowed nation that has been reeling from a severe economic decline under the watch of an increasingly unpopular president.

7. In this interview with Anjem Choudery, he seems to have managed to get the station anchor, interviewer to wear some sort of cloth on her head, perhaps as a condition of his being allowed to do dawa (islamic proselytization) on her show? Anyone know more about that?

Thank you Richard, Grace, M., UK Pete, Yucki and a host of people who sent in material. It was a busy day and I didn’t even manage to get to it all but for those interested it can call be found in the comments under previous posts for Feb. 21 2015.

By this point, the questions we may have had about how history played out as it did should be clear to all who care: Links 2 on Feb. 21 – 2015

1. French Interrior minister in Silicon Valley to talk terrorism

2. Lawmaker claims Turkish tanks crossed into Syria to protect tomb

A Turkish lawmaker has claimed that a number of Turkish tanks have reportedly entered into northern Syria to protect the Turkish property that was said to be facing a possible attack by Islamist radicals.

National Movement Party (MHP) I?d?r deputy Sinan O?an said on his Twitter feed early on Sunday that Turkish army crossed into Syria and entered into the tomb “without any incident or a skirmish.” He claimed that the army is now in full control over the tomb, which is situated in a territory considered as a Turkish land.

3. Al Shabab makes a ‘documentary’ about the massacre at the West-gate Mall

(I wonder if they hired Michael Moore like in the movie, American Carol?)

4. US weapons ‘fall into’ Islamic state hands.

5. Libyan chemical weapons ‘seized by extremists’

Sources tell Arab newspaper arms could reach Islamic State, as group gains foothold inwar-torn country

The sources expressed concern that the non-conventional weaponry, which included mustard gas and sarin gas, could find its way into the hands of Islamic State fighters.

The report added that militias had apparently already conducted an experiment with the captured weapons.

On Friday Islamic State terrorists unleashed suicide bombings in eastern Libya, killing at least 40 people in what the group said was retaliation for Egyptian airstrikes against the extremists’ aggressive new branch in North Africa.
