The cost of ignoring reality in wartime is high: Links 6 on Feb. 3 – 2015

1. ‘Just wait…’ Islamic State reveals it has smuggled THOUSANDS of extremists into Europe

The Syrian operative claimed more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen had been smuggled into western nations – hidden amongst innocent refugees.

The ISIS smuggler, who is in his 30s with a trimmed jet-black beard, revealed the ongoing clandestine operation is a complete success.

“Just wait,” he smiled.

It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world and we will have it soon, God willing

ISIS operative

The Islamic State operative spoke exclusively to BuzzFeed on the condition of anonymity and is believed to be the first to confirm plans to infiltrate western countries.

Islamic State, also referred to as IS and ISIS, is believed to be actively smuggling deadly gunmen across the sparsely-guarded 565-mile Turkish border and on to richer European nations, he revealed.

There are now more than 4,000 covert ISIS gunmen “ready” across the European Union, he claimed.

2. Omar Khadr applies for bail

The King’s University in Edmonton is holding a spot for former Guantanamo Bay detainee, portrayed by Ottawa as an Islamic terrorist, if he gets bail next month.

A Christian university in Edmonton has offered to admit former Guantanamo detainee Omar Khadr if he wins his bid for freedom next month after 12 years in custody.

“What better way to prepare someone for success in life than with education,” said Dan Vankeeken, vice-president of The King’s University, in an interview Tuesday as he visited Toronto.

Although the Khadr case has been highly politicized and has divided Canadians, Vankeeken says the university’s decision has been well received by the community.

3. France arrests 8 more with alleged jihadist links

(CNN)French counter terrorism police arrested eight people with alleged links to jihadist cells in Lyon and the Paris suburbs Tuesday morning, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said at a Paris press conference.

He said 161 legal investigations into terrorism are currently ongoing, with 547 people implicated in the inquiries.

4. This short article is an excellent primer on what exactly we must call islamic jihad, and why, and it may be of some considerable advantage if we internalize the point of this short essay so we can use it when speaking with others on the path of awakening as to the nature of the threat we face today.

5. Don’t call a mosque a mosque? Ezra on CBC reporting and the NDP response to Stephen Harper’s simple statements of fact.

6. Fascinating list of mohamed’s expeditions. One can refer to this when muslims attempt to detract from the piracy, rape and murder origins of the religion.

7. Excellent take down of Michael Moore by Daniel Greenfield. 

(As much as I loved reading this, in fact it was researching the methods and distortions of Moore that got me into internet activism in the first place, it is a shame that Greenfield’s excellent mind had to be fired up and calories spent on that opportunistic narcissist Moore)

8. Kelly Files on why Obama is spending US federal tax dollars trying to overthrow the government of Bibi Netanyahu

At around 11:40 Eastern time, Jordan is expected to execute a number of Islamic State prisoners. Hard to say what the repercussions of that may be, but there will likely be some.

Many times on this site I have asked people to talk to casual acquaintances and friends and family about this subject in a calm, informed and matter of fact way. It is really critical that we normalize both the discussion of the nature of Islam and its effects as well as normalize criticism of islamic doctrine and scripture. Without this, a government even as well informed as Canada’s Stephen Harper’s cannot openly fight this thing. There has to be public will and that will come from public understanding.

This isn’t to say there will be no negative consequences from these conversations. You will lose friends. Some people will say bad things about you. Your family will almost certainly be divided. But I ask you to consider the alternatives. It should be evident now that we are at war, and the enemy numbers are high and their tactical advantages are many. The cost of ignoring reality in times of safety and prosperity are often as trivial as bad songs and stupid paintings and even great songs and interesting paintings. But the cost of ignoring reality when your culture and history are under real attack is extinction. I can afford to lose the friends that don’t get it.

Thank you Wrath of Khan, M., Sheik Yermami, and many more who’s material, including a fascinating pictorial essay of a display at Carleton U against freedom of speech I am still sorting out.

  1. “What better way to prepare someone for success in life than with education,” said Dan Vankeeken, vice-president of The King’s University, in an interview Tuesday as he visited Toronto….”

    But why this prick??? Is it too much effort to find someone more deserving in the hordes that want entry into Canada?

    Does Saudi fund some of The King’s University admin costs?

  2. 6/ The difficulty is, as we have all experienced, that Muslims invariably have some way to make out that Muslims were the victims in each case. Some of the excuses appear in this list.

    For example, re the Battle of Tabouk, an attack on the Byzantines, ‘Mubarakpuri claims, reason was revenge for the killing of 1 of Muhammad’s ambassadors by a Christian chief of al-Balaqa.’

    The Battle of Autas was to ‘defend against an attack by a league of tribes that formed an alliance to attack’ Muhammad.

    Muhammad attacked the Banu Mustaliq because he ‘received some rumours that the Banu Mustaliq were preparing to attack him.’

    And on it goes. You can bet that for cases in the list where no good reason is given (e.g. ‘To attack the Jews of Khaybar for booty to distribute to his followers whose expectations had recently been disappointed’) a clever Muslim will have some other pseudo casus belli up his sleeve.

  3. 5/ Ezra focuses in this segment on the most pressing concern, unfiltered importing of shariah-compliant Muslims. But a larger issue behind that comes in and out of view – that multiculturalism is a disaster not merely because of ‘Muslim extremists’, but because it’s a bad idea period.

    With Canada’s official policy of non-integration of immigrants from cultures radically non-Canadian, and without periods of slow or no immigration, the growth of racial or ethnic or religious enclaves and networks is a predicable outcome, as are irreconcilable conflicts between incompatible cultures. Freedom loses as government expands itself in both size and in terms of its interference in everyone’s lives in order to manage the unsolvable problems that government itself has created.

    As long as the various elites maintain their close ties with government, they feel they can’t lose, which may be true. But with Mohammedan hotheads drawing this kind of attention to the lies of multiculturalism, the CBC might be well-advised to overcome its loathing of Stephen Harper long enough to make an exception to the diversity-is-strength propaganda and let the Conservatives smack the jihadis down. Or least get them onto a program of stealthier jihad so they stop giving the game away.

  4. Muslim mother says she was discriminated against on Delta flight

    An Arab-American Muslim woman says she was discriminated against on a Delta flight to Detroit, Monday, after a confrontation with another passenger led an airline employee to make her change seats.

    The other passenger allegedly told Darlene Hider, who wears a headscarf (hijab), “This is America.”

    Hider was traveling home from a family vacation in Florida with her four children and her husband, Dr. Malik Hider. The family was flying on a Delta plane to Detroit. Two of her children were seated next to her, and her 9-month-old was on her lap,

    According to Hider, while people were still boarding the plane, the woman in front of her turned around and asked her to “control her kids.”

    […]The incident first came to Delta’s attention while Hider was still onboard the flight, as her brother Abed Ayoub was tweeting information sent to him by Hider’s husband. Ayoub is a lawyer with the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) and his initial tweet was retweeted thousands of times.

    “This incident is an example of the continuing growth of anti-Arab sentiment, and Islamophobia our communities face in America,” said Khalaf. “We encourage Delta to take immediate steps to rectify this matter and ensure that their agents are better equipped to address instances of harassment.”

    • Arab-American group says airline mistreated Muslim family

      The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee is asking Delta Air Lines to take action after an employee threatened to remove a Muslim family from a Detroit-bound flight when another passenger harassed the mother over her head-covering.

      Delta says it “doesn’t condone discrimination of any kind” and is investigating.

      The Washington-based civil rights group says the Arab-American family was aboard the plane Monday preparing to leave Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for Detroit when a passenger berated the hijab-clad woman and her four children, saying, “This is America.”

      The group says a Delta employee took no action against the harassing passenger, instead telling the woman and children to change seats. It says the employee refused to listen to the husband and told the wife she’d “better be quiet” or they’d be kicked off the plane.

  5. ISIS vows attacks on France, calls Muslims to join new ‘caliphate’

    The Islamic State has reportedly threatened France with more attacks and called for French Muslims to join the new “caliphate.” A new video by the group has emerged online, nearly a month after the deadly attacks in Paris.

    The video, reportedly seen by AFP, shows a masked individual surrounded by armed fighters calling on French Muslims to take up the cause for the creation of an “Islamic caliphate,” which has taken root in parts of Iraq and Syria.
    The group is also demanding that the French government release suspected jihadists that were detained for participating in the fighting in the Middle East.

  6. I don’t doubt there are thousands of ISIS fighters in Europe, the way all western nation allow supposed refugees in we are all setting in nations with thousands of fighters from various Islamic groups waiting for the word to start attacking the infidels in our homes.

  7. INDIA – Muslim groups demand ban on sale of Taslima Nasreen’s books at Kolkata Book Fair

    Kolkata: Controversial Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen is again in the midst of controversy with several Muslim social and political groups demanding ban on the sale and display of her books at the Kolkata Book Fair, which is due to end on February 10.

    In letters written to the organisers of the fair, Publishers & Booksellers Guild, Kolkata, the Indian Union Muslim League (West Bengal state) chief Shahanshah Jehangir, West Bengal state president of Mulayam Singh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party Vijay Upadhyay, and joint convenor of Milli Ittehad Parishad, West Bengal, Abdul Aziz, have demanded that no books written by Taslima Nasreen be either sold or displayed at the Kolkata Book Fair that began on January 30.

    In his letter, Shahanshah Jehangir, the state president, raised objections over allowing display of books written by Taslima by saying: “Your pampering(sic) this icon of evil and blasphemy, a lady whose self admission depicts low moral integrity reflected in her own personal life, will only contaminate (sic) a culture of decadence in our system while adding to communal tension and distrust.

    “We are confident of her being sponsored by Anti-Islam and Zionist forces, is determined to hurt the sovereignty of secular India, hence waging an evil war to defame Islam and the prophet and weaving a web of communal conflicts….

    “Please note if you fail to comply to our request to maintain peace and communal harmony by inviting this infamous exponent of repulsive vulgarity then the Indian Union Muslim League will not sit idle and resume to massive demonstration and public agitation in your book fair premises.”[…]

  8. BELGIUM – Isis threatens Belgium with ‘repeat of Paris massacre’ over Sharia4Belgium jihadists trial

    A Belgian newspaper has received a threatening letter signed by the Islamic State (Isis) vowing to carry out bomb attacks in the country in retaliation for the prosecution of a radical organisation linked to hate preacher Anjem Choudary.

    The typed message, addressed to King Philippe of Belgium and Flemish nationalist politician Bart De Wever, claimed Islamist militants were preparing a repeat of the massacre that left 17 people dead in Paris last month.

    Written in French, the letter was mailed to Flemish daily Het Laatste Nieuws earlier this week and is being investigated by police.

    “What happened in France is going to happen again in Belgium,” says the letter, threatening to target Belgian cities with car bombs.

    “From Belgium, Isis will conquer Europe,” the writer boasted. According to Het Laatste Nieuws, analysts said the text was consistent with IS style and rhetoric.

    The letter said the attacks would avenge dozens of alleged Islamist militants currently on trial in Belgium’s largest terror case.

    Forty-six alleged jihadists are being tried in Antwerp on charges of recruiting numerous young Muslims to fight in Syria for IS or the al-Qaeda affiliate Nusra Front.

    They were all members of Sharia4Belgium, a dissolved radical organisation advocating the implementation of Sharia law in the European country, which was formed under the guidance of Choudary as he was running his Islam4UK group.

    The threat letter came as Belgium’s terror threat was raised to its second-highest level in the wake of the Paris attacks.

    More than 10 people were arrested and two killed in an anti-terror raid against a jihadi cell allegedly planning to kill policemen in the street and at police stations, in January.

    The northern European country has been the scene of Islamist attacks in the past. Last year, Mehdi Nemmouche, a French jihadist who fought in Syria, shot dead four people at the Brussels Jewish Museum.
