Ibrahim Bin Shakaran, a Moroccan who spent more than three years at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility before being released to Moroccan custody, has been killed while leading a jihadist group that fights Syrian government forces.

Bin Shakaran, who is also known as Abu Ahmad al Maghribi, Abu Ahmad al Muhajir, and Brahim Benchekroune, was “martyred, Insha’Allah, in battles for Hilltop # 45 in Latakia,” according to Kavkaz Center, a propaganda arm of the Islamic Caucasus Emirate.

3. Muslim Brotherhood Launches Own U.S. Political Party

Islamofascism: With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.

‘Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.

“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”

USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.

4. Pakistan couple gets death over ‘blasphemous’ text message 

(To understand this news item properly, I strongly recommend reading the thorough book, ‘The Impact of Islam’ which details how blasphemy laws are a catch all for muslims to use against any unbeliever as a way of making sure that they win any and all disputes. In other words, the plaintiff might be pissed that a Christian asked for their lawn mower back (or sand blower or what have you) so launches a blasphemy charge which carries the death penalty and virtually no evidence is required and the defendant will know nothing similar to what we call, due process)

A court in eastern Pakistan has sentenced a Christian couple to death for sending a blasphemous text message insulting to the Prophet Mohammed, their lawyer said Saturday.

Judge Mian Amir Habib handed the death sentence to Shafqat Emmanuel and Shagufta Kausar in a jail in the town of Toba Tek Singh on Friday, defense lawyer Nadeem Hassan told AFP.

Prosecution department officials confirmed the sentence.

The impoverished couple, who are in their forties, have three children and live in the town of Gojra, which has a history of violence against Christians, Hassan said.

  1. 23 Killed in Family Feud in Southern Egypt: Officials (nbcnews, April 5, 2014)

    “At least 23 people were killed in clashes between rival families in the southern Egyptian city of Aswan, health and security officials said on Saturday.

    The violence erupted late Friday after students from the feuding families had scrawled insulting graffiti on the walls of a local school, security sources said.

    The two families hail from a Nubian group and the Arab Beni Helal clan, the sources said.

    The two sides used gunfire and petrol bombs and several houses burned to the ground before police were able to stop the fighting on Saturday morning, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

    Mohamed Sorour, a health ministry official in Aswan, told Reuters the number of dead had risen to 23 by Saturday afternoon. He said 31 people were hospitalized.

    The governor ordered 17 local schools to cancel classes on Sunday, the first day of the work week in Egypt, state news agency MENA reported.”

    Turnout High in Afghan Elections Despite Reports of Violence (nbcnews, Apr 5, 2014)

    “About 7 million Afghans turned out to vote in Saturday’s presidential election, officials said, a high turnout despite scattered violence and reports that some polling stations couldn’t open.

    While there were no major attacks or suicide bombings, at least 16 security personnel and four civilians were killed over the past 24 hours, officials said.

    Eighty-nine Taliban militants were also killed, and 179 other fighters arrested.

    Compared with the 2009 elections in which 625 security incidents were reported, there were close to 150 this year, including mortar attacks, small arms fire and bombings near polling sites. About 1,000 polling sites of the more than 7,100 remained closed because of security concerns as well as harsh weather in remote regions.

    Counting began shortly after polls officially closed Saturday night (9 a.m. ET) — allowing only those who remained in line to cast their ballots, the independent elections commission’s head of secretariat, Ziaulhaq Amarkhil, told NBC News….”

  3. Syria crisis: Clashes in Jordan’s Zaatari camp (BBC, Apr 6, 2014)

    “At least 22 Jordanian police have been taken to hospital after clashes with Syrian refugees at the Zaatari camp in northern Jordan, officials say. Authorities denied reports that a refugee had been killed in the unrest.

    Security forces used tear gas to disperse stone-throwing refugees who had set fire to tents and vehicles. The sprawling camp, which houses some 106,000 refugees, has seen several protests since opening two years ago, mainly over poor living conditions.

    Zaatari is located in the Jordanian desert, about 12km from the Syrian border. It is the world’s second-largest refugee camp – behind Dadaab in eastern Kenya – and has become the fourth largest city in Jordan.

    Jordanian authorities said the violence broke out after police arrested a group of refugees trying to leave the camp illegally….”

    This is the worst news possible.

    First of all – ALL the organizations involved are Muslim Brotherhood front groups. It’s all one organization split into several in order to confuse. So it’s starting out based upon deception.

    One member is a wanted war criminal. He engaged in massacres in Bangladesh. When his side lost they massacred Bangladeshi intellectuals in order to deprive the new nation of it’s leadership class.

    These groups are all sister organizations to Al Quada and they have direct connections to terror.

    Because of what we know from the secret memorandum disclosed in the Holy Land trial, they’re all FANATICALLY committed to the destruction of our country.

    They don’t believe in democracy.

    They want to re-subject American muslims to the horrid situations that they fled here to free themselves from in the first place.

    This is like the KKK having a political party.

    This is the AL QUADA PARTY. It should ALWAYS be called the AL QUADA PARTY.

  5. Other names:

    It’s the Muslim KKK party that works in conjunction with Al Quada –

    That makes it the QQQ party.

    They are a fascist organization composed of organizaitons that are funded by foreign powers like Saudi Arabia and Qatar. It’s the Saudi Arabian party.

    Would we allow Russia and China to have political parties in this country?

    It’s an attempt of fascists and foreign powers to infiltrate our government and allow control over our nation. Interacting with them is treason.

    Every single member belongs in Guantanamo Bay, not the legislature.

  6. Yucki the people who will take a hard look at them are the people who are already doing so, the MSM will continue to ignore them.
