Where Joe BiteMe Goes, Nobody Knows!

He's so popular, the news is published after he leaves!

There was limited media access to the vice president. Only a newspaper reporter was allowed inside the event.

Now why would they only allow a newspaper reporter in? Because the story will be in... tomorrow's newspaper! To them, anyway. I guess they didn't count on the fact that the newspaper reporter would boast to his brethren in the teevee media.

By the way, the Field Club is very, very exclusive. It's for rich people. More hypocrisy from the Ruling Class. They hate the rich, unless they're the rich.

Botched Suicide Attack in Indonesia

Indonesian Botched Suicide Attack.jpg(Jakarta, Indonesia) Earlier today a suicide bomber identified as Ahmad fortunately botched his planned attack on a suburban police station.

Unfortunately for Ahmad, he lived and didn't get to see 72 virgins.

The 38-year-old man sustained serious injuries to his face, neck, torso, arms and a leg after an apparent attempt to kill two police officers stationed at the Sumber Artha Traffic Police post near the Sumber Arta market in Kalimalang.

Witnesses say Ahmad was either riding or pushing a bicycle when he detonated a homemade nail bomb reportedly strapped to the front of the bike.

Another witness was reported by local media as saying that it appeared Ahmad lost control of his bike and hit a lamp post before the bomb detonated prematurely.

Ahmad left a suicide note complaining about the police going after mujahideen. It's believed that Ahmad has ties to an Aceh terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda.

First Clue the Times Square Bomber was a Retard: His "rifle" was a 9mm Kel-Tec

kel-tec_9mm.jpg

Actually, the first sign that Faisal Shahzad is a retard was the pathetic job at constructing a simple bomb. Thank God for small favors.

The second sign is the propaganda video he made for the Taliban. After watching it I'm surprised the TTP didn't ask him to be a suicide bomber. Seriously, it embarrassed me to watch it. I'm not kidding. I actually felt a little sorry for the retarded bastard.

So, technically this is the third sign:

Shahzad also admitted that he bought a semi-automatic 9 mm Kel-Tec rifle prior to the attempted bombing for his use in case he was “attacked” or “captured.”
Dude, I loves me some Kel-Tec when it comes to small arms, especially super-concealable pistols, but a 9mm "assault rifle" (which is how it's identified in the Attorney General's sentencing memorandum)? ARE YOU KIDDING ME????

My God man, for a few bucks more the same company sells several actual assault rifles that shoot real rifle rounds! Or didn't they teach you the difference between a 9mm and a .223 in those five months you were in Waziristan?

CIA chief Leon Panetta briefs Pakistan intelligence chief on major attack

Via The Cable

The U.S. government is working furiously to counter a plot to attack several European public targets, CIA chief Leon Panetta told the head of Pakistan's intelligence community Wednesday.

The plot, to attack multiple public targets in several European capitals, was slated to occur in late November, according to Panetta. After capturing one of the prospective attackers en route from Pakistan's FATA region, the U.S. government authorized the CIA to step up drone strikes inside Pakistan to unprecedented levels while working with various allied governments to kill or capture the two to three dozen militants reportedly preparing for the operation.

The strikes being planned focus on soft targets, such as tourist attractions and public meeting spaces. No targets were believed to be in the United States, although the targets could very well have American citizens present.

Panetta, traveling in Islamabad, met with Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha, the head of Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence agency (ISI) Wednesday to brief him on what American intelligence services have discovered about a series of Mumbai-style attacks planned by al Qaeda in cooperation with Pakistan's Haqqani Network and Lashkar-e-Taiba, the military group responsible for the devastating attacks in India in November 2008.

The Cable received a read-out from a high-level source who was briefed directly on the Panetta-Pasha meeting. The CIA is asking Pakistan to allow expanded permissions to increase the intensity of drone strikes inside Pakistan -- which are already at record levels --and allow greater access for U.S. and associated forces operating inside Pakistan.

According to The Cable's source, Panetta told Pasha that the U.S. already has in custody one of the alleged attackers, a German citizen of Pakistani origin named Siddiqui. He was captured leaving Pakistan's FATA region and is now currently being held at Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan.

The attacks were planned for late November and allied intelligence agencies are employing all resources at their disposal to round up the rest of the perpetrators, with the understanding that the threat has not yet been neutralized.

"Unless you have killed or captured all 24 to 36 operatives, how can you be sure the plot is foiled?" the source said.

Look for the CIA to really ramp up the drones.....what we have been witnessing has been nothing until now.

Proof: Ally of Satan = Jihadi Suicide Bomber

We now have clear evidence from Allah (swt). Jazakallah khair for the verification we didn't technically need.

Herald Sun:

A WOULD-be terrorist died after the homemade bomb attached to his bicycle handlebars exploded on Jakarta's outskirts.

The unidentified 38-year-old was rushed to hospital with face, neck and torso injuries but died within hours. No one else was hurt.

The man was carrying a suicide note saying he was seeking revenge against the enemies of Islam.

"This is revenge against you, the allies of Satan, who have killed, executed and detained mujahidin (holy warriors)," read the note, shown on Indonesian television.

"This martyr's bomb is for all you infidels.

"We will chase you, even if you run to heaven.

"Your death is certain.

Silly jihadi. You know you shouldn't play with the bang-bang.

AQIM To Hostages: Say Cheese

SITE

Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) has released a video showing hostages they kidnapped in Niger.

DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — A tape released Thursday on a jihadist forum shows the first images of a group of hostages including five French citizens since they were seized two weeks ago in Niger by an al Qaeda offshoot and taken into the desert.

The four-minute tape shows still images of the hostages sitting cross-legged in the sand with a gently sloping dune behind them. French officials believe the seven hostages are now in the bordering West African nation of Mali.

The hostages were grabbed in the middle of the night on Sept. 16 from their guarded villas in the uranium mining town of Arlit in Niger where they were working for French nuclear giant Areva.

The French Foreign Ministry said the tape was encouraging because the images show the hostages alive.

Giving in to terrorists demands=more hostage taking. AQIM make monies this way. Not that I don't have feelings for those who where kidnapped, I do. I pray daily for their safety.

Someone has to hold the trump card, but it shouldn't be AQIM. Just sayin.

Category Error

A Category Error is a problem that is so poorly defined it becomes impossible to solve.

Sultan Knish understands this about 'the War on Terrorism':

Every problem has a solution, some solutions are simply too difficult or expensive to implement. Many fall short of offering a comprehensive solution that resolves the problem, because the problem has never been stated. The US nation building project in Afghanistan is one solution, but it is a very limited solution at best. And like most limited solutions it is the product of misunderstanding the nature of the problem. And the problem is one whose name we dare not speak. Islam.

Below the fold, The Time Traveler discusses a Category Error

A message from Dan Simmons:

"So you kept telling yourselves," said the Time Traveler. His voice was very low but there was a strange and almost frightening edge to it. "But the 'peace' in 'Islam' means 'Submission.' You’ll find that out soon enough"

Great, I was thinking. Of all the time travelers in all the gin joints in all the world, I get this racist, xenophobic, right-wing asshole.

"After Nine-eleven, we’re fighting terrorism," I began, "not..."

He waved me into silence.

"You were a philosophy major or minor at that podunk little college you went to long ago," said the Time Traveler. "Do you remember what Category Error is?"

It rang a bell. But I was too irritated at hearing my alma mater being called a "podunk little college" to be able to concentrate fully.

"I’ll tell you what it is," said the Time Traveler. "In philosophy and formal logic, and it has its equivalents in science and business management, Category Error is the term for having stated or defined a problem so poorly that it becomes impossible to solve that problem, through dialectic or any other means."

I waited. Finally I said firmly, "You can’t go to war with a religion. Or, I mean... sure, you could... the Crusades and all that... but it would be wrong."

The Time Traveler sipped his Scotch and looked at me. He said, "Let me give you an analogy..."

God, I hated and distrusted analogies. I said nothing.

"Let’s imagine," said the Time Traveler, "that on December eighth, Nineteen forty-one, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt spoke before a joint session of Congress and asked them to declare war on aviation."

"That’s absurd," I said.

"Is it?" asked the Time Traveler. "The American battleships, cruisers, harbor installations, Army barracks, and airfields at Pearl Harbor and elsewhere in Hawaii were all struck by Japanese aircraft. Imagine if the next day Roosevelt had declared war on aviation... threatening to wipe it out wherever we found it. Committing all the resources of the United States of America to defeating aviation, so help us God."

"That’s just stupid," I said. If I’d ever been afraid of this Time Traveler, I wasn’t now. He was obviously a mental defective. "The planes, the Japanese planes," I said, "were just a method of attack... a means... it wasn’t aviation that attacked us at Pearl Harbor, but the Empire of Japan. We declared war on Japan and a few days later its ally, Germany, lived up to its treaty with the Japanese and declared war on us. If we’d declared war on aviation, on goddamned airplanes rather than the empire and ideology that launched them, we’d never have..."

I stopped. What had he called it? Category Error. Making the problem unsolvable through your inability – or fear – of defining it correctly.

Yemen Suspends US Airstrike Authority

Everything the Yemeni government is a lie to some degree or another, so who knows where the shred of truth is in this story.

Zawya/AFP: Yemen's foreign minister acknowledged the United States has launched attacks on Al-Qaeda in his country in an interview published on Thursday, the first confirmation from Sanaa of a US military role. (They've been denying it since December.)

Abu Bakr al-Kurbi told the Saudi-owned pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat that the US strikes were suspended in December because his government viewed them as counterproductive. (The air strikes had two major misses, killing 43 civilians in one and taking out a pro-government sheik in another. No successes and better not to launch then to take out civilians repetitively.)

"Fighting Al-Qaeda is the responsibility of security and anti-terrorism forces in Yemen," Kurbi said. (LOL, good one Kirby.)

However, the New York Times reported in mid August that the US military carried out a secret air strike in May against a suspected Al-Qaeda target in Yemen, killing a deputy provincial governor in the process...In the interview, Kurbi also said that while Yemen had launched a manhunt for US-born jihadist preacher Anwar al-Awlaqi, who is on a US most-wanted list, it would not hand him over if it succeeded in capturing him. (I can tell you where Awlaki is, at home, 60 miles away from al Hota, where the manhunt was.)

"Awlaqi is in an area where we are conducting operations against Al-Qaeda, and he is among those targeted for arrest in these operations," the Yemeni foreign minister said. (That's not what the Yemeni embassy said last week. Get your stories straight already.)

"The US has already requested the extradition of other Yemenis holding US citizenship, but we refused because the Yemeni constitution prohibits the extradition of a Yemeni citizen to a third country. This applies to Awlaqi." (When does the Yemeni government follow the Yemeni constitution? Only when it suits them.)

In April, a US official said the Obama administration had authorised the targeted killing of Awlaqi, after intelligence agencies concluded the Muslim cleric was directly involved in anti-US plots. (Awlaki has no religious education. He's an al Qaeda "cleric" like I'm a high priestess of democracy.)

Terror Suspect Visited White House

abudayyeh_white_house_small.jpg

An Obama linked anti-war activist named Hatem Abudayyeh who is at the center of a series of FBI raids last week visited the White House in April, records show. Hatem Abudayyeh, the Executive Director of the Arab American Action Network, is under suspicion for "material support for terrorism". He and his organization openly support terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah, Hamas, the PFLP, and FARC. The FBI is currently looking to see whether contacts between Abudayyeh and these terror organizations crossed a line into "material support".

Abudayyeh's organization was once given a grant by the Wood's Fund which was then headed by "community organizer" Barrack Obama. Obama is said to have been friends with Rashid Khalidi, who's wife was President of Abudayyeh's group and who was a former member of the PLO.

So, what was this suspected terrorist supporter doing at the White House? Jim Hoft has more details.

Not that it is singularly unusual for terror enablers to visit the White House. In fact, I think this guy used to hang out there quite a bit. Not the guy in the turban, the other one.

Thanks to J.

Go Grannie Go

Good gun control in Chitown.

CBS2:

eighbors said an elderly woman was fed up with constant harassment from a 12-year-old boy, so she took a gun and shot the child after he and his friends threw bricks into her home.

Now, the boy is charged with a crime, while the 68-year-old woman is not.

The boy who was shot, along with another boy, 13, are cited in juvenile delinquency petitions with one count each of misdemeanor aggravated assault to a senior citizen, according to police.

The woman, Margaret Matthews, was released from police custody without being charged, on the grounds that she acted in self defense, police said.

...Margaret Matthews spoke with CBS 2's Kristyn Hartman off-camera. She said she fired her gun in self-defense to try and scare the boys off. She said she did not intend to hit anyone. She called the whole incident "unfortunate."

Numerous neighbors have been speaking in her defense. They sympathize with the woman, and say she wasn't the only victim, she was just the first to take action.

Of course in the face of all the evidence the boys family says
"He and his friend were walking down the street, and they saw a window broken at a woman's house, and as they passed by, they said she came out shooting," said the boy's grandmother, Donna Virges.
Yeah sure he was. That's the ticket.
Other neighbors said Matthews' actions did not amount to self-defense, but attempted murder of a child.

"If you're directly shooting and she's running, you were trained to kill him, so she would have killed them," said neighbor Jacyrha Cahn. "She was defending herself? I'm just saying, was she defending herself? No."

WTF? that makes no sense whatever.

Nothing pisses me off like idiots spouting a line of shit. This lady can't even string a sentence together.

Where do these people come from who believe they can act like this and lie? They are even too stupid to know that everyone knows they are FOS.

Moscow Mayor Fired by President Medvedev

Yury Luzhkov.jpg(Moscow, Russia) Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov has been fired from his position by President Dmitry Medvedev because of reported "worsening relations."

Interestingly, Luzhkov is a strong political ally of Prime Minister Putin who Medvedev is preparing to face in the 2012 elections.

Commentators say Luzhkov's removal is a sign that Medvedev is asserting his authority ahead of the 2012 presidential elections, when he will face off against his long-time mentor Putin, who has hinted he is going to make a bid to return to the presidency.
Arguably, Medvedev is greasing the political skids for reelection by axing a key supporter of Putin. Medvedev has hinted that he'll be going after others "if he felt he had lost trust in them."

In any event, the run-up to the 2012 Russian election should be very interesting as Medvedev and Putin jockey for position. (more….)

Confirmed: al Qaeda Leader Killed in Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan – The International Security Assistance Force confirmed a precision air strike in Kunar province Saturday killed Abdallah Umar al-Qurayshi, an Al Qaeda senior commander who coordinated the attacks of a group of Arab fighters in Kunar and Nuristan provinces.

The Al Qaeda facilitators and extremists he worked with throughout the Middle East directly threaten the safety and security of Afghan civilians. He routinely facilitated the travel of foreign fighters, including Arabs, into the region.

Additionally, Abu Atta al Kuwaiti, an Al Qaeda explosives expert, and several Arabic foreign fighters were killed in the strike. ISAF is working to confirm the exact identities of other high-level insurgent commanders, who were meeting when the strike was conducted.

“The death of Abdallah Umar al-Qurayshi is a significant victory for the people of Afghanistan,” said U.S. Army Col. Rafael Torres, ISAF Joint Command Combined Joint Operations Center director. “We deliberately targeted a major threat to Afghanistan, which will significantly degrade the Al Qaeda activities throughout the region. We will relentlessly target the remaining foreign fighters, Al Qaeda, and senior Taliban leadership still operating in Afghanistan and those who harbor them.”

Based on intelligence sources, coalition forces tracked Abdallah Umar al-Qurayshi to a remote compound in the Korengal Valley. After verifying his location and careful planning to help reduce the collateral damage, coalition forces conducted a precision air strike on the targeted compound, which was subsequently destroyed. The security force was able to confirm the death of the Abdallah Umar al-Qurayshi Tuesday.

Video: American Traitor Adam Gadahn Doesn't Like America, or Pakistan, or India, etc...

First clue that you're a moron? You leave California and join al Qaeda.

Second clue that you're a moron?

adam_gadahn_ak47.jpg

You use the business end of your rifle for a handrest.

The new as Sahab produced video on behalf of al Qaeda shows American Adam Gadahn addressing the recent flooding in Pakistan. If Gadahn and al Qaeda are so concerned about the victims of the floods, shouldn't he be down there helping them instead of hiding out?

His main criticism seems to be that the Pakistani regime is corrupt. His point being, um, what exactly? I think there's pretty much near total agreement on that.

The question isn't whether Pakistan is corrupt, it is. The question is would a Taliban-like government be less corrupt? It won't.

In fact, the vision Gadahn and al Qaeda has is one where the current corrupt leaders are replaced with a new set of corrupt leaders. But with the added layer of stoning adulterers to death and closing down schools for girls!

In fact, since his official stance is that democracy is bad then there is no mechanism for throwing out the corrupt leaders in an "Islamic" state.

The entire video is below. Exit question: why isn't this a-hole dead?

UPDATE: After watching the video for a second time, two things strike me as different from fat-bastard's usual fair.

First, notice that he's outside. Normally Gadahn shoots videos behind a desk inside and in front of a fake backdrop, usually of a book shelf. The kind of back drop you might find at your local mall's Olin Mills.

Second, notice that he doesn't mention the normal "Zionist-Crusaders" (ie, America and her Jewish "puppet masters") but uses the term "Zionist-Crusader-Hindu occupation". As any Pakistani will tell you, the enemy is India. So, it seems that Gadahn is doing the smart thing (for once): he's playing on Pakistani nationalistic sentiment.

The audience Gadahn is addressing in this video, it would seem, are Pakistanis. Normally Gadahn's videos are targeted toward America and Europe. But not this time.

I wonder if the two things -- him being outside and addressing the video towards Paksitanis -- are related somehow? Perhaps he's filming outside because the normal compound he produces videos from has been obliterated by a Predator attack?

And if that is the case then the two might very well be related given that Predators only operate based on intelligence gathered mostly from local sources. Gadahn and al Qaeda know this and perhaps they fear they are losing some of the locals. Trying to bolster domestic support (domestic being Pakistan here) just makes sense.

It's a theory, but it fits the evidence.

California Teacher Found Dead

(South Gate, California) A 39-year-old fifth-grade teacher at Miramonte Elementary School, Rigoberto Ruelas Jr., was found dead at the foot of a remote forest bridge on Sunday. The death is being reported as an apparent suicide.

Teachers' union officials claim that Ruelas (pic) killed himself because he was upset after the LA Times published the student and teacher performance ranking for his school district. The actual motive and circumstances surrounding the death remain unclear.

Sadly, even as the death of Mr. Ruelas crushes his family, his friends and his students, the teachers' union piles on a political issue. Lots of class, eh?

Spain Arrests American al-Qaeda Member (UPDATED/Bumped)

Mohamed Omar Debhi-american-al-qaeda.jpg

Yahoo:

MADRID – Spanish police have arrested a U.S. citizen of Algerian origin who is suspected of financing al-Qaida's North African affiliate, the Interior Ministry said Wednesday.

Mohamed Omar Debhi, 43, was arrested Tuesday in the town of Esplugues de Llobregat, a Barcelona suburb. His arrest is not connected to terrorism alerts this week in France and Britain and is just a coincidence, a ministry official said on condition of anonymity in line with ministry rules.

Debhi is suspected of laundering money and sending some of it to an associate in Algeria,Toufik Mizi, to be passed on to cells of al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, a ministry statement said. Mizi is wanted in Spain after eluding a police raid in 2008.

The ministry said Debhi used bank transfers or human couriers to send Mizi amounts in excess of euro60,000 ($80,000), although it did not specify how much was sent altogether.

Also of note some computers and hard drives were taken as evidence as well. Wonder what was on those...

UPDATE by Rusty: I added the image of Debhi above.

I also bumped the post because we have yet another American citizen involved in international terrorism.

Jawa Report News Special - Obama In Madison *Bumped*

Doing our part for the readers of the Jawa Report, and the interwebulz in general, Dr Shackleford threw me the keys to the Sandcrawler and I made the trip to beautiful Madison Wisconsin yesterday for an afternoon of drinks, great weather, and the O Show. Hey, two out of three ain't bad.

Things got under way at 3:30. Great turnout. Lots of people. Most were students and I’d guess 75%. Some crowd estimates I've seen were 12,500 to 17,000 on Library Mall. I'd put that closer to 12,500, again, on the Mall. Bascom Hill was also packed and there were people who couldn't get in so the overall crowd could have been up near that 30,000 that Feingold threw out of which I initially scoffed at, unaware of the crowd on Bascom.

I'm having a hard time remembering the exact sequencing, mostly due to the excessive amount of IPA followed by the meager scattering of porta-potties, but Tammy Baldwin, Russ Feingold, and Tom Barrett spoke interspersed with bands such as Mama Digdown's Brass Band, The National, and Ben Harper. Of that crew, including the speakers, Ben Harper got the biggest initial applause.

Soon it would be time for Obama. This is when the signs got passed out since home-made signs were not allowed. I had to toss my “Psssst, Your Balls Are Showing. Jawas Rule!” sign. Obama came out around 6PM. Raucous applause ensued for the rolled up shirt sleeves and high-fives with the students. I was saddened by the lack of bras thrown on stage, the weather was beautiful and the ladies were appropriately dressed. Opportunity lost.

Subject matter: Republicans ruined everything and I have had 20 months to fix it, which I pretty much did, but I need some more time.

The message was on point and clear. Delivered in his famous campaigning variety. The response from the crowd was muted to overwhelming. The latter as a result of Obama highlighting health care for 26 year-old children and student loan availability, as expected. I mean, if he mentioned something about free beer, I would have thrown a bra on stage. Also, probably arrested because a guy has to get the bra from somewhere.

So what's the conclusion? This event was an attempt to rally the young voters to the polls to vote for trailing Democrats and to support Obama's policies. Did it work? In this reporter's opinion, no. The crowd was interested in seeing Ben Harper and a sitting President, which is what they got. It is easy to fire up the children with celebrities and topics close to their lives, but to convince this group, and the other 25% non-students, that Obamanomics is the answer to this county's problems, well that was, and is, a tough sell.

Donations To Terrorists Are Tax Deductible

Last December, Rep. Brad Sherman, D-CA alerted the St Dept, DOJ & the IRS that Viva Palestina funnels money to Hamas. Apparently, they only sound he heard is crickets chirping.

Via IBTimes:

In the United States today, a person can donate money to a group that publicly transfers money to Hamas, a U.S.-designated terrorist organization, and the donor can take a tax deduction for the gift.

Congressman Sherman has written to the State Department, the Department of Justice and the IRS, informing them that Viva Palestina is soliciting funds for a terrorist organization in the United States, a practice that is supposedly illegal under the Patriot Act and other related laws.

The State Department, in replying to Sherman, noted the possible illegality and said they were forwarding his letter to the DOJ. The DOJ has yet to reply.

"From the IRS, I got a form letter," Sherman said. "They said they're taking a look."

Congressman Sherman sent his letters last December.

Viva Palestina was formed in January 2009 by George Galloway, a former British Member of Parliament and an outspoken supporter of a Palestinian state. The expressed purpose of VP was to provide humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian people.

"But the organization has openly used its resources to prop up Hamas' government in the Gaza Strip," Stephen Landman, from the Investigative Project on Terrorism, told a House subcommittee on Tuesday.

According to Sherman and Landman, Viva Palestina has a sister organization in the U.S. called Viva Palestina USA, which claims that it does not give money to terrorists, although there is clear evidence that it does. VP USA partners with the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organizations, or IFCO, which is an American 501(c)(3) organization and can, therefore, receive charity contributions.

Hmmm, I wonder if Hamas scratches financed in the USA on rockets fired into Israel?

Georgia: Counter-Terror Operation Stops Trucks On I-20(Ooops)

Yesterday: WSBTV

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga. -- A team of federal agents stopped tractor-trailers on Interstate 20 just west of Atlanta, inspecting each truck as it passed through a weigh station, and Channel 2 has learned its part of a counter-terrorism operation.

Channel 2's Linda Stouffer reported a flashing sign on the interstate directed the trucks to pull into a state-owned inspection station near Lee Road in Douglas County at the height of the evening commute.

Citizen Journalist: "Daylight Is The Best Disinfectant"

Yesterday evening I posted a video regarding a assault on citizen journalist: Ohio Gov Strickland Supporter, Scioto County Sheriff Looking For You. Outrageous linked to another video regarding a assault on citizen journalist:

I checked the youtuber's channel. In comments, I read this: "We now know that the thug in the video is former Democratic Portland Mayoral Candidate James Posey".

Simple Google turned up this from Examiner-Portland

Chicagoland: Former Portland mayoral candidate assaults activist at Kitzhaber meet and greet[...]

At an open-invitation public meet and greet which included Oregon gubernatorial candidate John Kitzhaber on Thursday, a local activist with a camera met that violent reality face to face. Or fist to face, as it turned out.


The activist, whose name is being withheld from this report due to fear of further reprisal, showed up for the event at Immanuel Temple Church in N.E. Portland on Thursday ready to film the event and post it on the internet as he had done at multiple political events this Summer[...]

It didn’t turn out that way.[...]

The first man to try to forcibly take the camera was Charles McGee, one of the event’s planners. After some discussion, McGee told the activist “You’re going to stop filming and you’re going to leave.” Soon after, McGee reaches out, grabs the camera but fails to get it from the activist. McGee efforts were joined by James Posey, a 2004 candidate for Portland Mayor, and the two men flanked the videographer on opposite sides. At some point, Posey reaches up swiftly and smashes the camera into the activist’s face.

After the assault, the activist removed himself from the church building and called the police, who are, as of Friday, investigating the incident.

Posey did take our call but declined to comment on the specifics of the incident saying that there may be “legal ramifications in doing so”. [...]

Posey, who garnered about 5% of the vote in Portland’s 2004 primary race for Mayor, has been outspoken in the past about violence, theft and intimidation tactics. The following is an excerpt from his 2004 voter pamphlet:[Read the rest]

It's the Chicago way alright.

Here We Go Again: Jewish Boats To Gaza

Yes, there are leftist Jews, so don't give me any of your BS whatever the hell your name is in comments.

Howie posted a video earlier of the IDF boarding the activists boat [the Irene]. No problem, towed to Ashdod port, end of story.

Just read this: Boat activists claim assault by IDF commandos

Activists on board the Jewish aid boat that was intercepted yesterday on its way to Gaza told Haaretz they were assaulted violently by the Israel Navy commandos who intercepted the vessel. According to an earlier statement issued by the Israel Defense Forces spokesperson, "The boarding occured without incident and no violence of any kind was used by either the passengers onboard or the Israel naval forces."

"I have no words to describe what we went through in the takeover," said Yonathan Shapira, a conscientious objector and former Israel Air Force pilot who was on board the Irene. "They just pounced on us and beat us up. I myself was injured by a Taser."

Shapira said that while the activists were not violent, "some of the soldiers treated us horrifically. There are tremendous differences between what the IDF spokesman is saying and what actually took place." Shapira said the army spokesman was trying to spin the events in order to send out a positive message.

Israel Channel 10 television reporter Eli Osherov, who was on the ship, also told Haaretz that the naval commandos used excessive force against the activists.

"They used an electroshock weapon on Yonathan, who was dragged, screaming, onto the naval boat. He and his brother Itamar were handcuffed," Osherov said, adding that after the activists were taken to the navy vessel they held long conversations with the soldiers, trying to explain their stance, and that by then the atmosphere was "pleasant enough."

So, curious as I am, decided to read the activists tweets for links to horrific treatment by the IDF commandos. Hmmm, didn't see much, guess their website didn't have the above link yet. All I saw was so and so refuses to be deported to take a stand, demonstrations happening in support....yada yada yada.

They don't give a damn about Gazans, they are dafuk barosh.

Confirmed: Would-be Terrorists Targeted Motoon Paper

Norwegian police have confirmed that a man arrested in July on suspicion of planning a terrorist attack had targeted the offices of Jyllands-Posten newspaper.

According to police, Shawan Sadek Saeed Bujak, 37, confessed under interrogation that the newspaper responsible for the 2005 publishing of drawings of the prophet Mohammad.

I'd speak out against this type of violence by Islamic extremists, but frankly I'm too scared.

So my new editorial policy is that Islam is awesome and its extremists are pretty much on par with Christian extremists like the Mennonites, Amish, and Jehovah's Witnesses.

Good News: Multi-Attack Terror Plot On European Cities

Looks like a Mumbai II was in the offing.

Sky News

Intelligence agencies have intercepted a terror plot to launch Mumbai-style attacks on London and other European cities, according to Sky News sources.Sky's foreign affairs editor Tim Marshall said militants based in Pakistan were planning simultaneous strikes on London and other major British cities.

The group - thought to be linked to Al Qaeda - were also planning similar attacks in France and Germany.

Marshall said the plot was in the "advanced but not imminent stage" and the plotters had been tracked by spy agencies "for some time".

Intelligence sources told Sky the planned attacks would have been similar to the commando-style raids carried out in Mumbai.

Then, Pakistan-based Islamist group Lashkar-e-Taiba killed 166 people in a series of gun and grenade attacks in the Indian city.

Obi One: FOX News Destructive To America

Alternate headline: Obi One: FNC doesn't play fair like my cable/news networks do

[Rolling Stones interview via Examiner]When asked about Fox News the president immediately laughed. He then was careful to note that he believe in the freedom of the press and the right of Fox News to broadcast how they wish. Having gotten that statement, the president quickly criticized the network for having an agenda which he believes is destructive to America
"The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history. Before that, you had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view

It's a point of view that I disagree with. It's a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it's been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it's that Fox is very successful."

Certainly doesn't like success, does he? Evil capitalists!! You are to have thrills running up your legs when you hear me speak!! I am a narcissist and I demand your respect!! You are killing my polls....I could go on and on, you get my drift.

He also commented on the Tea Party

He notes that the Tea Party includes people who would call themselves libertarians and oppose almost all government, but also includes hard core social conservative who envision a very active role for government in regulating morality.

Obama then stated that there is also a "little darker" aspect of the Tea Party which fuels itself off on anti-immigrant sentiments and opposition to what he "represents as the president."

Evil gun toting, Bible thumping, Constitution lovin, Non-Racist Tea Party people.

I am your leader and you will Viva la Obi One me.

Al-Jazeera: The US as the bad guy, not the suspected al Qaeda operative

I don't know for a fact that Sharif Mobley is a member of al Qaeda or al Shabaab, but he does admit meeting with the spiritual leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula Anwar al-Awlaki. Since he's not a journalist, I'm pretty sure his motivations for meeting with the most dangerous man in the English speaking world weren't exactly pure. What, you think they were discussing fuzzy kitties?

But in a puff piece on him by al Jazeera, Mobley is portrayed as an innocent victim of the US war on terror. Al Jazeera:

As he drank tea on a Sana'a street, eight masked men burst from two white vans and tried to grab him. Terrified, he ran, but was brought crashing to the ground by two bullets to his legs and bundled into one of the vans.

The method of abduction may have been brutal, but it was not the work of a rebel group or criminal gang. Instead, the armed men were Yemeni security agents, and in a set of legal documents seen by Al Jazeera, Mobley's lawyers allege they were operating on behalf of the US government.

Yeah, right, poor poor Mobley.

The article does go on to mention that he is "accused" of killing a guard during an escape attempt. What they don't mention is that Mobley murdered the guard as he was kneeling in prayer.

Classic: SEIU Leader, Obama Linked "Charity" Investigated for Terror Support

An update on this story: Search Warrants Served on Anti War Activists Suspected of ... Material Support for Terrorism.

The group in question has allegedly met with several terrorist organizations including Hezbollah, Hamas, PFLP and FARC.

At the center of the ring of "peace activists" is a guy by the name of Hatem Abudayyeh, a left wing activist and Executive Director of the Arab American Action Network. I'm getting tons of emails about this, but Jim Hoft has a good summary of the link between the "charity" run by Abudayyeh suspected of supporting terror, and President Obama:

The Arab American Action Network was founded by former PLO operative and close Obama family friend Rashid Khalidi. Obama was a director of the Woods Fund from 1994 through 2001, when the board approved a $40,000 grant to the Arab American Action Network.

In 2003 Barack Obama was an honored guest at a dinner sponsored by the AAAN for former PLO-operative Rashid Khalidi.

Ah, so that's what he meant by "community activist"!

A number of Abudayyeh's friends and associates are also under investigation.

Including a leader in the SEIU
:

Over the weekend the FBI announced that it was investigating Joseph Iosbaker for possible connections to overseas terror groups. Iosbaker and his wife Stephanie Weiner, both anti-war activists, are suspected of activities “concerning the material support of terrorism.” ....

According to the SEIU Local 73 website, Iosbaker is listed as the Local 73 Chief Steward. Iosbaker was also quite active earlier in the year protesting the closing of the Republic Windows & Doors factory that made the national news. Iosbaker was then listed as an executive board member of the SEIU.

Peace activists supporting terror? That's unpossible!

Disabled Muslim Superhero Debuts

A young Muslim character, who lost both legs in a "work accident" while fighting the Zionist apes and pigs in occupied Palestine, will debut in early November. His superhero persona will go by the name "The Silver Scorpion".

(FNC)

MuslimSuperhero.jpg

NEW YORK -- Comic book fans will soon be getting their first glimpse at an unlikely new superhero -- a Muslim boy in a wheelchair with superpowers.

One of his "superpowers" is the ability to ignore all facts, rationality, and logic, while stubbornly insisting his way is the only one true path to paradise. Another superpower is the ability to inflate mild personal offense into a murderous rage against his archenemy - The Kufar.

Brian at SnappedShot.com asks, "Did the world forget about The 99 already?"

Yes, Brian, it would seem so. Or maybe The Silver Scorpion is just extra special. This superhero has a disability. He is narcissistically incapable of reasoning.

The Scorpion and the Frog

A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion says, "Because if I do, I will die too."

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has just enough time to gasp "Why?"

Replies the scorpion: "Its my nature..."

President Carter Rushed to Hospital in Cleveland

Former President Jimmy Carter became ill on a plane and was rushed to a Cleveland hospital after landing at Hopkins Airport.

[Update] From the Carter Center in Atlanta:

"While on a flight to Cleveland, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter developed an upset stomach, and, upon arrival, was taken to MetroHealth Hospital for observation. He is resting comfortably and is expected to resume his book tour this week."

According to airport spokeswoman Jackie Mayo, it appears that Carter, 85, was not feeling well when his commercial Delta flight landed about 11:30 a.m. and the decision was made to take him to Metro.

He was taken off the Delta flight by EMS crews. Mayo says she has no information on Carter's symptoms.

So, it appears to have been a minor occurrence. However, it's worth mentioning that if Carter gets real sick or worse, it will take some wind out of the news cycle.

"Terrorism" Reference Offends Muslims

Via Jihad Watch

From DomainIncite.com (Emphasis mine):

The reference to "terrorism" first showed up in DAGv4, the latest draft. It caused a bit of a stir, with at least two Arab community members harshly criticizing ICANN for its inclusion.

Khaled Fattal of the Multilingual Internet Group told ICANN it would "be seen by millions of Muslims and Arabs as racist, prejudicial and profiling" while Abdulaziz Al-Zoman of SaudiNIC observed that's it's not globally accepted "who is a terrorist and who is a freedom fighter".

One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter...

Now we are placating Muslim by accepting their definition of terms?

What next?

Do we release murderers in "honor" killings because, in their mind, what they did was a noble act? Do we ignore domestic abuse because, according to the Quran, wife beating is a part of a Muslim male's duty? Do we allow children to be raped by older adult males because it isn't "globally accepted" when a little girl is old enough to consent?

Edmund Burke once said, "All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." What is in store for us when we facilitate the intrusion of evil?

Hammertime: US Kills Top al Qaeda Commander in Afghanistan

Howie says we should wait to break out M.C. Hammer. Al-Masri's death has not been confirmed by either the US or al Qaeda.

Not me, I'm all about the optimism. And the Hammer!

Long War Journal:

Unconfirmed reports from Pakistan indicate the US has killed al Qaeda's newly appointed leader of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Sheikh Fateh al Masri, the leader of Qaedat al Jihad fi Khorasan, or the base of the jihad in the Khorasan, was killed in a recent Predator strike, Pakistani intelligence officials told AFP.

As Newbie has pointed out over and over these past months: Predator strikes are way way up this year.

How effective are these strikes? Al-Masri only became head of al Qaeda operations in the region in July of this year. His predecessor, Mustafa Abu Yazid was killed in May.

The average length of tenure for al Qaeda leaders is going way down.

Since al Qaeda leaders have always been eager for others to acheive martyrdom but have been loathe to seek it themselves, one wonders if they'll find any volunteers to take al-Masri's place?

Please Hammer, don't hurt 'em!

Iran Jails Blogger

WAPO:

TEHRAN, Iran -- An Iranian court sentenced the founder of one of the first Farsi-language blogs, credited with sparking the boom in Iranian reform bloggers, to more than 19 years in prison for his writings, a news web site reported Tuesday.

Iranian-Canadian Hossein Derakhshan, 35, was a controversial figure among Iran's blogging community. Writing his blog from Canada, he was initially a critic of Iran's clerical leadership, and in 2006 he visited Israel - Iran's archenemy - saying he wanted to act as a bridge between the two countries' peoples.

But he later became a vocal supporter of hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, praising him for standing up to the West and criticizing regime opponents. Derakhshan then visited Iran in 2008 and was arrested. Over the next two years, he was often held without communication with family or lawyers, according to rights groups.

Mashreghnews.ir, which is close to Iran's presidential office, reported on Tuesday that Derakhshan was convicted on charges of cooperation with hostile countries - a reference to the Israel visit - spreading propaganda against the ruling establishment, promotion of counterrevolutionary groups and insulting Islamic thought and religious figures.

The Islamic thought police are alive and well in Iran.

Obama's Leadership in Spaaaaccceee

Reuters:

With more than 1,500 space shuttle workers facing layoffs this week, legislators say they will take a final shot at passing a blueprint for the U.S. human space program before adjourning ahead of the November 2 congressional elections.

The U.S. human space program was thrown into turmoil when President Barack Obama, acting on advice from an outside advisory panel, decided to end the agency's follow-on moon program called Constellation, and embark on a more flexible approach to deep space exploration.

That plan, unveiled in February, also would make the government a customer, rather than provider, for crew transportation services to the International Space Station. The proposal has divided legislators and the space community.

The Senate plan reigns in Obama's spending on commercial initiatives and directs NASA to begin work sooner on a heavy-lift rocket that would be needed for missions beyond the space station's orbit.

This boy Obama can tear up a steel ball with a rubber hammer. He's destroyed our space program in one swift stroke.

Its funny the only time Obama gets tight with the wallet is on our space program. But hey we still have the vomit comet...... our astronauts can pretend they are n space. And don't worry we have probes that can take cool pics of the Chinese flag flying on the Moon and Mars.

The Irene Ship Being Boarded Without Incident, 28 September 2010


On September 28, 2010, the Irene, a small boat with several passangers headed to Gaza were peacefully intercepted by the Israel Navy and rerouted to Ashdod Port. Israel has implemented a maritime closure on the waters off of Gaza, which is currently under the control of the terrorist organization Hamas. Ships that attempt to enter the waters off of Gaza are in violation of the maritime closure and are intercepted by the Israel navy.

In this particular case the ship was intercepted and boarded without incident of any kind and the Irene is currently sailing to Ashdod port.

Drones Target Terror Plot

Now we know why they ramped up the strikes..... the DEBKA report was right.

WSJ


WASHINGTON—In an effort to foil a suspected terrorist plot against European targets, the Central Intelligence Agency has ramped up missile strikes against militants in Pakistan's tribal regions, current and former officials say.

The strikes, launched from unmanned drone aircraft, represent a rare use of the CIA's drone campaign to preempt a possible attack on the West.

The terror plot, which officials have been tracking for weeks, is believed to target multiple countries, including the U.K., France, and Germany, these officials said.

The exact nature of the plot or plots couldn't be learned immediately, and counterterrorism officials in the U.S., Pakistan and Europe are continuing to investigate. There have, however, been multiple terror warnings in recent days in France, Germany and the U.K.

"There are some pretty notable threat streams," said one U.S. military official, who added that the significance of these threats is still being discussed among counterterrorism officials but that threats of this height are unusual.

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Moron

So before the whole Mexican midget tranny deal went south I was doing my annual clean up of the computer room/laboratory and stumbled across some old boxed up documents. One of them turned out to be a photocopy of the very first short story I ever wrote, way back at the wee age of 5 and a half.

I remember begging my mother to write it down for me being that I was illiterate at the time. So she sat down and duly typed it out on the family typewriter. She may have corrected a word or two and added in some punctuation (and breathing pauses), but it is pretty much is as it tumbled out of my young hyperactive mouth.

I do recall that it was loosely based on a dream I had. Probably brought on after watching a marathon of Johnny Quest and Lost in Space. And you can already see in it some of the themes that make up the Maet of today - concern over the extraterrestrial menace, an unhealthy interest in explosives and chemicals, and a fondness for technology-enabled violence. Clearly I was Abby Normal already at the tender age of five.[Rest]

Blackberry Now Relegated to Government Workers, Terrorists

Remember back in the dark ages when Bush-Hitler wanted to look at the emails of potential terrorists and civil liberties groups were up in arms? Well, Obama wants to do something similar. Only, Obama's plans seem to be even more sweeping -- not looking at individual emails or Blackberry messages but ordering the redesigning of all systems so intel and law enforcement could look at them if they wanted to.

Sure, a few ACLU types will be up in arms. But my guess is that this will be passed with overwhelming majorities and will outrage almost no one that matters. Not the elite, many of whom were all up in the vapors over Bush's efforts at intercepting terrorist communications.

New York Times
:

Federal law enforcement and national security officials are preparing to seek sweeping new regulations for the Internet, arguing that their ability to wiretap criminal and terrorism suspects is “going dark” as people increasingly communicate online instead of by telephone.

Essentially, officials want Congress to require all services that enable communications — including encrypted e-mail transmitters like BlackBerry, social networking Web sites like Facebook and software that allows direct “peer to peer” messaging like Skype — to be technically capable of complying if served with a wiretap order. The mandate would include being able to intercept and unscramble encrypted messages.

I'm probably not the best commenter on the technical aspects of Blackberry since a) it's a dead platform and b) I'm not sure of the differences in encryption between it and other similar platforms; but as one of the few "experts" on terrorist use of the internet this legislation is way overdue. Way, way overdue.

Not that we don't already have the means and methods to breaking into pretty much anything we want, only that there is a significant difference between evidence and intelligence. Since only some of our targets in the war on terror will meet their end in a Predator strike, then we're going to need to collect evidence from internet and other electronic sources that can be presented in trial. And for that NSA decryptions aren't always suited.

At Least She Had A Restraining Order...

A man shot and killed his estranged wife and four of his stepchildren and then killed himself early Monday, but he spared his two biological children, police said.

...

Police said there was a restraining order against Dell, who was in the midst of a divorce from his wife. He had gone after his wife with a knife in December, telling her "you will be going to the morgue," police said.

Proposal: Civil Damages for Islamist Threats

Middle East Forum's Legal Project is proposing a law which would do two things. First, it would lower the legal threshold for governments to prosecute threats made by violent Islamists in order to quash criticisms which they consider "blasphemy". Second, it would allow for civil lawsuits empowering victims of Islamist intimidation to sue those making the threats.

And our buddy Zachary Chesser, now in jail after trying to join al Qaeda's Somali branch, is used as an example of how the new law would help:

The "South Park" incident neatly illustrates the benefits. On April 15, following the first of a two-part episode mocking Jesus, Buddha and Muhammad, RevolutionMuslim.com announced that "[w]e have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh." The "warning" included the names, photos and work address of "South Park's" creators, a graphic image of Van Gogh's mutilated body and pictures of other targets of Muslim extremists. Overlaying this was audio of Awlaki preaching about assassinating anyone who defamed the prophet. Panicked, Comedy Central heavily censored the episode.

This rather obvious threat could not be prosecuted. New York Police Department officials explained it did not rise to a crime. Were the FACE Act applicable here, a civil suit would have been available, and precedent suggests it would have been successful.

If the law is what Aayan Hirsi Ali and Daniel Huff claim it is in the op-ed, then I'm all for it.

US drone strike kills four militants in Pakistan

The pace has picked up.

AFP

MIRANSHAH, Pakistan — A US drone strike killed four militants Monday and destroyed a rebel compound in Pakistan's lawless tribal badlands along the Afghan border, local security officials said.

Pakistani officials say unmanned US aircraft have significantly stepped up attacks on Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked operatives in the semi-autonomous region this month, clocking up at least 19 attacks in 24 days.

Monday's strike took place in Khushali Toorikhel village southeast of Miranshah, the main town in North Waziristan, the tribal district that has been the focus of the covert drone campaign as a Taliban and Al-Qaeda stronghold.

"We can now confirm that four militants were killed when a US drone fired two missiles on a militant compound," a senior Pakistani security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Another security official confirmed the attack and the death toll.

"We don't yet know the identities of those killed," the official said.

The hunt goes on..

Whose helicopter? Attack on Somali coast reported

Hmmmmmmmm.

AP

MOGADISHU, Somalia — U.S. military officials and the European Union Naval Force denied on Monday that one of their helicopters was involved in an exchange of fire reported by residents of a coastal town in Somalia.

Residents of the coastal town of Merca, about 50 miles (70 kilometers) southwest of Mogadishu, said a military helicopter flew over the town on Sunday and that militants fired on it. Some residents said the helicopter fired back but caused no major damage.

But no one seems to know who the helicopter belongs to.

The U.S. military's Special Operations Command Africa and its conventional counterpart, U.S. Africa Command, said they had no involvement, as did a spokesman for the EU Naval Force, an anti-piracy unit that has military forces off the east coast of Somalia. African Union troops also said they weren't behind the exchange.

"I can tell you we don't have any troops in that vicinity at all. We are surprised as you to be honest," said Maj. Bryan Purtell, the spokesman for the Germany-based Special Operations Command Africa.

The EU NavFor spokesman, Lt. Col. Per Klingvall, said: "We're not operating on the Somali coast. We're just operating out on the waters."

Someone needs to stand up and take a bow...hope they got who they were gunning for.

Hamas Operative Given VIP Tour of National Counterterrorism Center

wls_092510_NCTC_group_pic60b.jpg
Kifah Mustapha, third from left, at NCTC

Over at Big Peace there's a must read article identifying Sheikh Kifah Mustapha, who once worked at the Holy Land Foundation and who was personally identified as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case, as recently touring the National Counterterrorism Center as part of a Muslim outreach program.

I can't imagine he'd learn anything very helpful to Hamas on such a tour. Not unless Hamas is interested in the going rate of t-shirts and hats. They keep these facilities pretty much locked down and access is granted only with a swipe card. Visitors are usually given a little ID saying "must be escorted".

But, it does raise an interesting question, namely: WTF????

The guy was specifically named in the nation's largest terror financing case, and someone in PR thought it was important to "reach out" to this guy? You know, get him on our team?

Again: WTF?

NYC Teacher Tells of Prostitute Past

(NYC) A 30-year-old Bronx elementary school art teacher, Melissa Petro, has written about her experiences as a prostitute which has resulted in the school system placing her on administrative suspension. Here's the news video.



She says she used to be a sex worker who advertised on Craigslist and when Craigslist shut down its erotic services section, she decided to stop hooking.

Personally, it's troubling that Petro was able to be hired as a teacher even as she was working as a hooker. I suggest someone take a look at the vetting process for potential employees of New York City Schools.

Finally, The UN Is Taking Jawas Seriously

We will have a special contact with a space ambassador

Mazlan Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist, is set to be tasked with co-ordinating humanity’s response if and when extraterrestrials make contact.

Aliens who landed on earth and asked: “Take me to your leader” would be directed to Mrs Othman.

She will set out the details of her proposed new role at a Royal Society conference in Buckinghamshire next week.

The 58-year-old is expected to tell delegates that the proposal has been prompted by the recent discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting other starts, which is thought to make the discovery of extraterrestrial life more probable than ever before.

Mrs Othman is currently head of the UN’s little known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa).

Finally...

For The Cause Of Allah

Walid Shoebat's words set to music by Stuck Mojo (Some video images NSFW):

Below the fold, Stuck Mojo's anti-terrorist music video "Open Season" with lyrics.

"Open Season" By Stuck Mojo

I speak peace when peace is spoken, But I speak war when your hate is provoking, The season is open 24-7-365, Man up yo time to ride, No need to hide behind slogans of deceit, Claiming that you're a religion of peace, We just don't believe you, We can clearly see through, The madness that you're feeding your people, Jihad the cry of your unholy war, Using the willing, the weak and poor, From birth drowning in propaganda, rhetoric and slander, All we can say is damn ya

My forefathers fought and died for this here
I'm stronger than your war of fear
Are we clear?
If you step in my hood
It's understood
It's open season

I don't need a faith that's blind, Where death and hate bring me peace of mind, With views that are stuck deep in the seventh century, So much sand in your eyes to blind to see, The venom that you leaders preach, Is the path to your own destruction, Your own demise, You might say that I don't understand but your disgust for me is what I realize, Surprise!
Your homicidal ways has got the whole world watching, Whole world scoping, So if you bring it to my home base, Best believe it, The season's open

I see you, Hell yeah I see you, Motherfucker naw, I don't wanna be you, If you come to my place, I'll drop more than just some bass, Yo you'll get a taste of a, Sick motherfucker from the Dirty, I ain't worrying not a fucking bit, I'm telescoping like Hubble, Yo you in trouble, Yo on the double, I'm wild with mine, Bring that style with mine, Fuck with my family I'll end your life, Just the way it is, Just the way it be, Do you understand? No matter if you're woman or man, or child, My profile is crazy, That shit you do doesn't amaze me, I'm ready to blaze thee

I don't give a damn what god you claim, I've seen the innocent that you've slain, On my streets you're just fair game, Like a pig walk to your slaughter, The heat here is so much hotter, And my views won't teeter totter or fluctuate, Step to me you just met your fate, And I'll annihilate, With the skill of a Shogun assassin, Slicing and dicing precise with a passion, In any shape form or fashion, Bring it to my home, Welcome to the danger zone, Cause your attitude's the reason, The triggers keep squeezing, The hunt is on and it's open season

It's Open Season

Jihad Guide To Killing

This piece came out years ago, but its one of those timeless posts we need to keep in mind for all times.

These are 'rules' Jihadists use to justify terrorism. It is important that we know the rules as well. Rules from NYT-The Guidebook for Taking a Life.

10moss_CA0450.jpg

Rule No. 1: You can kill bystanders without feeling a lot of guilt.

The Koran, as translated by the University of Southern California Muslim Student Association's Compendium of Muslim Texts, generally prohibits the slaying of innocents, as in Verse 33 in Chapter 17 (Isra', The Night Journey, Children of Israel): "Nor take life, which Allah has made sacred, except for just cause."

But the Koran also orders Muslims to resist oppression, as verses 190 and 191 of Chapter 2 (The Cow) instruct: "Fight in the cause of Allah with those who fight with you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out, for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter. ..."

In the typical car bombing, some Islamists say, God will identify those who deserve to die — for example, anyone helping the enemy — and send them to hell. The other victims will go to paradise. "The innocent who is hurt, he won't suffer," Dr. Massari says. "He becomes a martyr himself."

There is one gray area. If you are a Muslim who has sinned, getting killed by a suicide bomber will clean some of your slate for Judgment Day, but precisely where God draws the line between those who go to heaven or hell is not spelled out.

Rule No. 2: You can kill children, too, without needing to feel distress.

True, Islamic texts say it is unlawful to kill children, women, the old and the infirm. In the Sahih Bukhari, a respected collection of sermons and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, verse 4:52:257 refers to Ghazawat, a battle in which Muhammad took part. "Narrated Abdullah: During some of the Ghazawat of the Prophet a woman was found killed. Allah’s Apostle disapproved the killing of women and children."

But militant Islamists including extremists in Jordan who embrace Al Qaeda's ideology teach recruits that children receive special consideration in death. They are not held accountable for any sins until puberty, and if they are killed in a jihad operation they will go straight to heaven. There, they will instantly age to their late 20s, and enjoy the same access to virgins and other benefits as martyrs receive.

Islamic militants are hardly alone in seeking to rationalize innocent deaths, says John O. Voll, a professor of Islamic history at Georgetown University. "Whether you are talking about leftist radicals here in the 1960s, or the apologies for civilian collateral damage in Iraq that you get from the Pentagon, the argument is that if the action is just, the collateral damage is justifiable," he says.

Rule No. 3: Sometimes, you can single out civilians for killing; bankers are an example.

In principle, nonfighters cannot be targeted in a militant operation, Islamist scholars say. But the list of exceptions is long and growing.

Civilians can be killed in retribution for an enemy attack on Muslim civilians, argue some scholars like the Saudi cleric Abdullah bin Nasser al-Rashid, whose writings and those of other prominent Islamic scholars have been analyzed by the Combating Terrorism Center, a research group at the United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.

Shakir al-Abssi, whose Qaeda-minded group, Fatah Al Islam, has been fighting Lebanese soldiers since May 20, says some government officials are fair game. He was sentenced to death in Jordan for helping to organize the slaying of the American diplomat Laurence Foley in 2002, and said in an interview with The New York Times that while he did not specifically choose Mr. Foley to be killed, "Any person that comes to our region with a military, security or political aim, then he is a legitimate target."

Others like Atilla Ahmet, a 42-year-old Briton of Cypriot descent who is awaiting trial in England on terrorism charges, take a broader view. "It would be legitimate to attack banks because they charge interest, and this is in violation of Islamic law," Mr. Ahmet said last year.

Rule No. 4: You cannot kill in the country where you reside unless you were born there. [Ed: see The Covenant of Security]

Militants living in a country that respects the rights of Muslims have something like a peace contract with the country, says Omar Bakri, a radical sheik who moved from London to Lebanon two years ago under pressure from British authorities.

Militants who go to Iraq get a pass as expeditionary warriors. And the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks did not violate this rule since the hijackers came from outside the United States, Mr. Bakri said.

"When I heard about the London bombings, I prayed that no bombers from Britain were involved," he said, fearing immigrants were responsible. As it turned out, the July 7, 2005, attack largely complied with this rule. Three of the four men who set off the bombs had been born in Britain; the fourth moved there from Jamaica as an infant.

Mr. Bakri says he does not condone violence against innocent people anywhere. But some of the several hundred young men who studied Islam with him say they have no such qualms.

"We have a voting system here in Britain, so anyone who is voting for Tony Blair is not a civilian and therefore would be a legitimate target," says Khalid Kelly, an Irish-born Islamic convert who says he studied with Mr. Bakri in London.

Rule No. 5: You can lie or hide your religion if you do this for jihad.

Muslims are instructed by the Koran to be true to their religion. "Therefore stand firm (in the straight Path) as thou art commanded, thou and those who with thee turn (unto Allah), and transgress not (from the Path), for He seeth well all that you do," says verse 112 of Chapter 11 (Hud). Lying is allowed only when it is deemed a necessity, for example when being tortured, or when an innocuous deception serves a good purpose, scholars say.

But some militants appear to shirk this rule to blend in with non-Muslim surroundings or deflect suspicion, says Maj. Gen. Achraf Rifi, the general director of Lebanon's internal security force who oversaw a surveillance last year of a Lebanese man suspected of plotting to blow up the PATH train under the Hudson River.

"We thought the story couldn't be true, especially when we followed this young man," General Rifi said. "He was going out, drinking, chasing girls, drove a red MG." But he says the man, who is now awaiting trial in Lebanon, confessed, and Mr. Rifi recalled that the Sept. 11 hijacker who came from Lebanon frequented discos in Beirut.

Mr. Voll takes a different view of the playboy-turned-militant phenomenon. He says the Sept. 11 hijackers might simply have been "guys who enjoyed a good drink" and that militant leaders may be seeking to do a "post facto scrubbing up of their image" by portraying sins as a ruse.

Rule No. 6. You may need to ask your parents for their consent.

Militant Islamists interpret the Koran and the separate teachings of Muhammad that are known as the Sunna as laying out five criteria to be met by people wanting to be jihadis. They must be Muslim, at least 15 and mature, of sound mind, debt free and have parental permission.

The parental rule is currently waived inside Iraq, where Islamists say it is every Muslim's duty to fight the Americans, Dr. Massari says. It is optional for residents of nearby countries, like Jordan.

In Zarqa, Jordan, the 24-year-old Abu Ibrahim says he is waiting for another chance to be a jihadi after Syrian officials caught him in the fall heading to Iraq. He is taking the parental rule one step further, he said. His family is arranging for him to marry, and he feels obligated to disclose his jihad plans to any potential bride.

"I will inform my future wife of course about my plans, and I hope that, God willing, she might join me," he said.

Detainees’ diets at Guantanamo Bay have been a controversial issue for some time and now the U.S. prison is said to be rationing ice cream.

The frozen dessert is allegedly being tightly measured, with only one ice cream allowed for each of its 147 detainees.

Iran's Not So Near Future Nuclear Program

jewish-terminators0910.jpg

Internet Anthropologist has several posts following the Stuxnet cyber attack on Iran.

Iran's nuke program has been turned on its head with the discovery of Stuxnet in 300,000 of its PC's and associated control mechanisms.

While they are scrambling for methods to dis-infect these machines and digging to see just how deep this infection goes and running damage assessments and checking the depth of the Top Secret leaks they stopped trusting their info/data comms.

This is a huge embarrassment for Ahmadinejad and his Revolutionary Guard...

Keep reading at Internet Anthropologist's home page for all kinds of interesting stuff like VirusBlokAda
They had big problems with the previous
production from their program. It was corrupted, impure, useless. Running their product through(sic) the centrifuges destroyed them.
Plus IPR invisible persistent root-kits.

Oh so cool. It looks like Iran is admitting damage. The only question is how much damage.

Whomever, ehem, might have done this did a pretty darned good job. (wink wink)

Christians Arrested for Noon Meal During Ramadan

(Tizi Ouzou Province, Algeria) Reported this week, two forty-something Christian workers on a construction project, Hocine Hocini and Fellak Salem, were arrested for eating an "illegal" lunch during Ramadan.

The arrest of the two Algerians was made by police officers who have demonstrated an increased vigilance with regard to the eating behaviors of construction workers.

Appearing before the court, the police argued in favor of legal provisions that protect religious precepts from being disobeyed. The accused are therefore to answer for the "illegal" act: A meal while at work.

"I am optimistic... I have no regrets, I am a Christian" Hocine Hocini, told AFP. "We are innocent, we have not hurt anyone. We are Christians and we did not eat in a public place", he repeated as hundreds of supporters met them on their way out of the court.

This affair has thrown the local population into tantrums. A population that is not used to such incredibly shocking and dangerous judiciary incidents, considering that it constitutes a serious regression in what concerns the protection of civil liberties.

The bizarre incident has prompted outrage within the local population which fears its culture is being influenced too heavily by strict Islamic doctrines in Iran and Afghanistan.

"Allies": Pakistani Court Acquits Motoon Bombers

How do you say "jury nullification" in Dari?

A Pakistani court on Saturday acquitted three men charged over a deadly suicide car bomb attack near the Danish embassy in Islamabad in 2008, but prosecutors said they would appeal the verdict....

Six people were killed, including a Dane, and about 27 wounded when the devastating car bomb exploded outside the embassy in June 2008 amid anger in the Muslim world over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed first printed in Danish newspapers in 2005.

The prosecution failed to prove their case is what the court says. This is Pakistan, so all bets are off as to what really happened.

But let's not discount the judges simply scratching their heads their heads and say where's the crime in killing people for blasphemy? This'll teach Denmark for allowing people to publish cartoons!

France Accuses Spain of Financing Terror Through Ransom

France is accusing Spain of helping finance terror operations for al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. According to this source, Spain has given in to ransom demands by AQIM in the past. This money is now being used to finance terror operations in Europe.

Search Warrants Served on Anti War Activists Suspected of ... Material Support for Terrorism [Updated/Bumped: Hizbollah, FARC Connection]

MSNBC:

MINNEAPOLIS — The FBI said it searched eight homes in Minneapolis and Chicago as part of a terrorism investigation on Friday, and two subjects said the agency is targeting leaders of the anti-war movement.

FBI spokesman Steve Warfield told The Associated Press agents served six warrants in Minneapolis and two in Chicago.

"These were search warrants only," Warfield said. "We're not anticipating any arrests at this time. They're seeking evidence relating to activities concerning the material support of terrorism."

The home of Minneapolis anti-war activists Mick Kelly and Jess Sundin were among those searched, they told the AP.

UPDATE by Rusty: I don't believe it. Peace activists supporting terrorists? That's un-possible!

UPDATE by Rusty: FARC makes sense as they are a "Maoist" organization (or, they were, now they're more like narco-kindapping-mafiosos) and the "peace activists" seem to be some kind of socialists. But Hezbollah? The Lebanese proxy for Iran and avowed theocrats? I thought theocracy was bad?

But to the fringe Left, any enemy of the United States are their allies.

Weazil Zippers link this update:

Dooley said, “They are looking at any connection between him and ‘FTO’s,’ foreign terrorist organizations, including but not limited to FARC, PFLP and Hezbollah,” and any support, contact or association with those groups. FARC is a revolutionary peasant organization in Columbia, and PFLP is the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Hezoballah is a political and paramilitary organization based in Lebanon.

Dooley said the search warrant mentions documents, files, books, photographs, videos, souvenirs, war relics, notebooks, address books diaries journals, maps or any other evidence in electronic for that shows Kelly’s connections to those groups, and whether he supported or recruited people or talked to them. It also mentions potential co-conspirators, Dooley said.

Brave Mujahideen Claim Bombing of Evil Cell Phone Store

Telephones are harem. Except for the ones used to detonate IEDs.

And the new iPhones 4.0. The onese where you can be part of two-way goat sex chats. Live.

Yes, there's an app for that!

Arab News:

Al-Qaeda's front group in Iraq claimed responsibility Friday for two Baghdad bombings last week that killed at least 31 people at government security agency and what it called an "evil" mobile phone provider.

The Islamic State of Iraq said in a statement that it targeted the National Security Ministry and an AsiaCell store Sunday because they are an inseparable part of the government's crackdown on insurgents.

Forget the 31 dead, didn't you read that the store they targeted was Asian. Racists!

More on Imminent Terror Attack Warning

Yesterday I posted a link to a DEBKA article warning of possible terror attempts imminent in the EU. I only posted the DEBKA link because it was the first one I saw. The same story appeared all over the MSM, although kind of on the back pages.

Over at the Moderate Voice they wonder if the EU and the US need to go on Red Alert over the warnings? I'm not sure how "red" is different than "orange" alert, but the consensus seems to be that al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb is trying to target Europe and targeting them now.

So, be on alert. None of the indicators are that AQIM is targeting the US. The newer domestic terror warnings noted in the article aren't related to the EU threat. Instead, there was just some Congressional testimony about an increase in smaller-scale home-grown terror.

But this doesn't mean that AQIM won't try and target the US in the future. For instance, who would have thought two years ago that al Qaeda's Yemeni branch would target us? It's something for our nation's intel and law enforcement officials to keep in mind.

Stephen Colbert, The New Borat? (Updated)

Colbert definitely embarrassed the Democrats

The appearance of comedian Stephen Colbert before the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law has turned into an embarrassment for the Democrats responsible for the hearing[...]

Then Colbert began his testimony, which was an in-character schtick based on a one-day visit to an upstate New York farm. "This is America," Colbert said. "I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican." As the hearing went on, Colbert said things like, "I was a cornpacker…cornpacker is a derogatory term for a gay Iowan."Rest

What in the hell did they expect?

BTW, stole title from comment at link. Fits perfectly.

Update: After Borat err Colbert's display, his antics are all over the news. What ISN'T all over the news is American Hero: Coates Negates a year of DOJ spin on New Black Panther case.

Leave Lindsay Alone!!!##@!!!@@! again....

Yahoo:

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Lindsay Lohan is due back in court Friday to face a new judge but a likely familiar result — jail, rehab or judgment postponed.

The troubled starlet has publicly acknowledged failing a court-mandated drug test, which could trigger a 30-day jail sentence. But as with most things involving Lohan's three-year-old court case, the script isn't set.

It will be the "Mean Girls" star's first appearance before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden S. Fox, who is holding an arrest warrant to compel her appearance. The judge had said he would sentence her to a month in jail for each drug test she skipped or failed, but he still has discretion on her punishment.

The actress wasn't present for that hearing, which was held hours after her release from rehab.

Unless Lohan, 24, requests immediate sentencing, the judge will have to set bail and release her until a formal probation revocation hearing can be held. A return to rehab is also an option.

Law enforcement and court officials say they do not know how Fox will handle Lohan's case, but that they are prepared for any ruling.

"Whatever he determines, we'll abide by," said Jane Robison, a district attorney's spokeswoman. "Sentencing is in his hands."

Steve Whitmore, a sheriff's department spokesman, agreed, saying the jail was ready to book Lohan if necessary.

Stop oppressing the Lindsay's boobies! Stop the boobie hate! I mean what happened to the days when a nice set of jugs and a bit of sluttyness would fix anything?

Update: Curst my metal body. I wasn't fast enough...

FOX is reporting that Lindsay's boobies have been ordered back to jail.

Shocking as it may be, I don't think the judge reads TJR.

Iranian Sex Traffickers in Britain

Check out the going price.

A sex trafficking gang offered to sell the virginity of underage girls to wealthy businessmen for up to £150,000 each.

The three women and a man were offering girls as young as 13 but were arrested in an undercover Scotland Yard operation after staff at a luxury hotel tipped off police.

Gang members arrested, mostly Iranian and unemployed, include Fatima Hagnegat, 24, and her husband, Rassoul Gholampour, 30, and her aunt, Marohkh Jamali, 41, and Sara Bordbar. All admitted to sex trafficking and prostitution offenses in Harrow Crown Court.

All were sentenced to jail terms of two years and three months to two years and nine months. Not exactly harsh punishment in my opinion.

Liberal Blogger to Axelrod: "Quit Hippie Punching"

WaPo

Top Obama adviser David Axelrod got an earful of the liberal blogosphere's anger at the White House moments ago, when a blogger on a conference call directly called out Axelrod over White House criticism of the left, accusing the administration of "hippie punching."

"We're the girl you'll take under the bleachers but you won't be seen with in the light of day," the blogger, Susan Madrak of Crooks and Liars, pointedly told Axelrod on the call, which was organzied for liberal bloggers and progressive media[...]

Madrak replied that Axelrod was missing the point -- that the criticism of the left made it tougher for bloggers like herself to motivate the base. "Don't make our jobs harder," she said.

"Right back at'cha. Right back at'cha," Axelrod replied, a bit testily, an apparent reference to blogospheric criticism of the administration.

At any rate, for Axelrod to plead with liberal bloggers for their help turning out the base, only to get accused of "hippie punching," is an iconic moment in Campaign 2010.

Bwahahahahaha

OMFG: CIA Killing Americans in Pakistan!!

strangelove_ride_bomb.jpg

Gosh, I'm so going to join the ACLU after hearing that one of the other revelations in Bob Woodward's new book is that sometimes CIA drones kill Americans in Pakistan.

CIA killing Americans? Say it aint so! Outrage times ninety-eleven!!

Wait, I might have forgot to finish the rest of that sentence.

Sometimes CIA drones kill Americans in Pakistan as collateral damage because they are working with al Qaeda, the Taliban, and related groups.

Oh what a difference a subordinate clause makes!

Uncle Jimbo has this to say:

Well I don't know that anyone is sure exactly what US law says about this. We may or may not have known they were Americans, and if we did know and they are doing the al Qaeda dance then tough shite. By the very nature of the acts they commit, terrorists forfeit any rights they may have accrued under any laws or treaties. We cannot afford to miss a chance to take out any of these barbarians any time we get positive ID. Failing to do so would put the blood of anyone they kill later on us. Better to hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the pampered and protected-by-their-betters left about how we are uncivilized for shooting rabid animals.
An American passport is nice. I have one. It gets me from point A to point B.

But I wouldn't count on it from protecting me from a bomb dropped by a Predator drone as I was having high tea with Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Thank You Internet for Stock Quotes, Celebrity Sex Videos, and ... al Qaeda in America

In the 1990s the internet gave us stock quotes. In the 2000s the internet gave us celebrity sex videos. In the the 2010s? Al Qaeda in America:

On Wednesday, officials testifying before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee said at least 63 U.S. citizens have been charged or convicted of terrorists acts or crimes since 2009....

"The past year has seen the most significant developments since 9/11," said Michael Leiter, head of the National Counterterrorism Center....

Government officials have become increasingly concerned about the role the Internet plays in helping recruit Americans for al Qaeda. Napolitano said U.S.-born, Yemen-based Anwar al-Awlaki is an illustration of an English-speaker spreading propaganda over the Internet, an approach she said could be helping to increase the number of homegrown extremists.

Somebody is finally getting the message. And it only took 63 Americans linked to violent jihadism to get it!

Luckily, most of the 63 were dumbasses and with the exception of Nidal Hasan's victims no one else was hurt here. Some of those have been indicted but are thought to be overseas fighting with al Shabaab or other Islamist groups.

The threat is not "growing" as was stated in the testimony. The threat has been growing for years and mostly ignored. The radicalization process does not happen overnight. It takes the development of many things, one of them a social network to support violence. That has been in development for many years as we've pointed out thousands of times.

No, the threat isn't "growing". Which suggests, to me, that the result of the threat is something to worry about down the line. The threat has "matured". It has come to full fruition. It is not at our doorsteps. It is in the house, sitting in our Lazyboy, with one hand on the remote control and the other on a detonator.

Thanks to someone for reminding me about this story that I meant to talk about yesterday.

Awesome: "Lady Al Qaeda" Aafia Siddiqui Sentenced to 86 Years! **Bumped** (Updated)

From the AP:

A U.S.-trained Pakistani scientist convicted of trying to kill U.S. agents and military officers in Afghanistan was sentenced Thursday to 86 years in prison after she called on Muslims to resist using violence and said she loves American soldiers.

Aafia Siddiqui, 38, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Manhattan by Judge Richard M. Berman, who said "significant incarceration is appropriate."

And a message to all of you freak protesters from the mouth of the guilty...you better sit down because your world view myth may collapse...
Siddiqui said she was particularly upset by overseas reports that she was being tortured in a U.S. prison. She said she was actually being treated well.

"I am not sad. I am not distressed. ... They are not torturing me," she said. "This is a myth and lie and it's being spread among the Muslims."

UPDATE by Rusty: This is big news. Aafia Siddiqui is a cause celebre amongst the jihad crowd. They claim she was secretly held by the US for years where she was tortured and raped. They also claim her children are still being secretly held by the evil Zionist-Crusaders.

Expect riots in 4 ... 3 ... 2 ....

Aafia Siddiqui archives

PS -- Because of a double post I just synthesized them both into this one.

Update by Ronin:

Where would the Muslim world get these crazy ideas of rape and torture? British journalist Yvonne Ridley, among other attention whores, as noted here:

Ridley wrote about Bagram's "Prisoner 650" and her ordeal of torture and repeatedly being raped for over four years. "The cries of (this) helpless woman echoed (with such torment) in the jail that (it) prompted prisoners to go on hunger strike." Ridley called her a "gray lady (because) she (was) almost a ghost, a spectre whose cries and screams continue to haunt those who heard her. This would never happen to a Western woman." It did to Aafia, other Muslim women as well, and their ordeal continues horrifically.
Update by SH: Told yah:
ladyalqaeda_more protests.jpg

Pakistan protests

Her conviction has been widely criticised in Pakistan, where Siddiqui is believed to have been innocent and mistreated in US detention.

Rallies were staged in several Pakistani cities on Thursday. In Karachi, about 400 members of the Jamaat-e-Islami group gathered, carrying pictures of Siddiqui and chanting slogans against the US and its justice system.

The group tried to march towards the US consulate, but the police stopped them before they got too close.

Siddiqui's sister, Fauzia Siddiqui, later went to the consulate to submit a written message which said "Free Aafia Now".

Expect more of the same.

Jawa Report in ... Esquire

Pretty cool. But of all the blogs featured the least flattering words are directed at us and I'm partly to blame. The author emailed me last week with a bunch of questions for the article and I told him I'd get back to him. I didn't. Oops.

Esquire, The Laptop James Bonds:

While America's intelligence services monitor some of these forums, a loose coalition of thrill-seeking, all-American bloggers is helping keep the rest of us safe by exposing terrorist plots — despite threats to their own lives....

The largely crowdsourced Jawa Report, which often mixes legitimate investigation with unsettling anti-Muslim invective, achieved fame last year by alerting authorities to Colleen "JihadJane" Rose, a would-be terrorist in Pennsylvania who is believed to have colluded with a group of American and Iranian terrorists in an attempt to kill Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks...

The Jawa Report regularly posts the death threats it receives — almost as a badge of honor — and no less than Al Qaeda leader Yusef al-Ayeri called for [Aaron at Internet Haganah's] head. This job takes balls.

Two things, first we didn't alert the authorities about Colleen "JihadJane" La Rose. That was a friend of a friend. I thought I was clear about that? I knew her, but not as well as Howie and Stable Hand; and I followed her antics, but I, regrettably, didn't take her seriously.

Second, what "anti-Muslim invective"? WTF?

This is why I get pissed off from time to time with you numbskulls in the comments: you make me look bad.

So please stop it.

Other than that, go check out the article. If it comes out in print let me know so I'll have an excuse to go out and buy it.

No honey, I'm not looking at that nearly naked spread of Angelina Jolie, I'm reading about The Jawa Report!

Sweet: US Running Paramilitary Forces in Pakistan

If Pakistan isn't sovereign in the so-called 'tribal' areas, then screw them: it's Chicago rules, baby!

The revelation that the CIA is running Pashtun operatives from Afghanistan into Pakistan forthcoming in Bob Woodward's new book has been confirmed:

Confirming an account in a new book by famed reporter Bob Woodward, the US official told AFP that the Counterterrorism Pursuit Teams were highly effective but did not offer details.

"This is one of the best Afghan fighting forces and it's made major contributions to stability and security," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The 3,000-strong paramilitary army of Afghan soldiers was created and bankrolled by the CIA, designed as an "elite" unit to pursue "highly sensitive covert operations into Pakistan" in the fight against Al-Qaeda and Taliban sanctuaries, according to The Washington Post, which revealed details of the new book.

Pakistan denies it saying no "foreigners" are operating in "their" country. Which is funny, since the Afghan Pashtuns are now "foreigners" in an area in which the majority of the people are Pashtun, where there is little to no Pakistani control, and where the Punjabis in the army would be viewed as more "foreign" than Pashtuns from across the Kyber Pass.

But, alas, the noble lie. If lying to the Pakistani people will prevent the Taliban or Taliban-like forces from taking over the third-rate nuclear power, then so be it.

Boobies In Emergency Become Bared

Emergency Bra_604x341.JPG
www.Ebbra.com

Via FOX

Caught in a disaster? You'd better hope you're wearing the Emergency Bra. Simply unsnap the bright red bra, separate the cups, and slip it over your head -- one cup for you, and one for your friend.

Dr. Elena Bodnar won an Ignoble Award for the invention last year, an annual tribute to scientific research that on the surface seems goofy but is often surprisingly practical. And now Bodnar has brought the eBra to the public; purchase one online for just $29.95.

"The goal of any emergency respiratory device is to achieve tight fixation and full coverage. Luckily, the wonderful design of the bra is already in the shape of a face mask and so with the addition of a few design features, the Emergency Bra enhances the efficiency of minimizing contaminated bypass air flow," explains the eBra website.

UK Now Officially a Shariah State: 6 Arrested for Burning Quran on YouTube

Is this the United Kingdom -- the country that gave Karl Marx political asylum -- or is this Saudi-freaking-Arabia?

They arrested these guys for inciting racial violence.

Now that burning a Quran is illegal in the UK, is it illegal to burn, say, the Scottish flag? I mean, the Scots are a "race" (if that term means anything at all) .... but since when is "Islam" or "Muslim" a race?

How about the Israeli flag? Is that illegal?

Only one thing can explain the double-standard: fear.

The Brits fear their own Muslim minority. And while no one will admit it I can see no other motivation for singling out Muslims for special protection no other group receives.

And just to be clear: It's not the hypocrisy that bothers me near as much as any laws which forbid the free exercise of speech and religion in the context of peace. Clearly this violates both.

Geert Wilders is right: the EU needs a 1st Amendment.

AP:

British police say they have arrested six men on suspicion of stirring racial hatred after they posted a video on the Internet in which they appear to burn two Qurans on Sept. 11.

Northumbria police say the men posted bail and were released. They will face further court hearings for their actions in the town of Gateshead in northern England, police said in a statement.

If any one finds the videos on YouTube, let me know.

Obama's Teleprompter Killing Jews is Not Resistance

Having a teleprompted President has its advantages. We know what POTUS will say hours, heck days, in advance.

MSNBC:

In a speech to foreign leaders on Thursday, Obama will aim to put himself forward as an international statesman who has re-engaged the United States with the world after years of perceived neglect.

"It should be clear to all that efforts to chip away at Israel's legitimacy will only be met by the unshakeable opposition of the United States," he was expected to say, according to excerpts of the speech obtained by NBC News. "And efforts to threaten or kill Israelis will do nothing to help the Palestinian people — the slaughter of innocent Israelis is not resistance, it is injustice.

"Make no mistake: the courage of a man like (Palestinian) President (Mahmoud) Abbas — who stands up for his people in front of the world — is far greater than those who fire rockets at innocent women and children."

Anyway that is what he will say. I can't say I disagree at all. I wonder who wrote it?

Just think of how awesome it will be when those actual words are uttered by Obamamessiah!

Peace is like sorta almost inevitable now.

AP Stringer Arrested for Working for .... the Taliban


(AP Photo/Rahmatullah Naikzad)

Two journalists were actually detained. One was a stringer for the AP named Rahmatullah Nekzad who also did freelance work for al Jazeera. The other guy is named Mohammed Nader and worked for al Jazeera.

How were they linked to the Taliban?

"Afghan and coalition forces had intelligence information linking the men to Taliban propaganda networks."
The Committee to Protect Journalists is up in arms because, um, journalists can't be terrorists. I think by definition, right?

Where have we heard Rahmatullah Nekzad's name before? He stood by and took pictures and a video as the Taliban murdered two women in 2008 (photo above). He actually knew the women were going to be executed and went to document the Taliban's meting out of "punishment" anyway after he had notified the AP of his intention.... and no one at the AP thought the imminent murder of two women was noteworthy enough to notify US, ISAF, or Afghan authorities.

Some of his other pictures taken for the AP has Taliban soldiers posing for him (see below).


(AP Photo/Rahmatullah Naikzad)

Naikzad was detained once before for two days after the incident in which he stood by as the Taliban murdered two women. One wonders if this time he'll actually be charged with something?

If nothing else, it looks as if Naikzad had a rather "chummy" relationship with the Taliban. This makes him a perfect candidate for a job with al Jazeera. But an American company like the Associated Press? Shame on them. Congress ought to investigate (but they won't).

We know which side al Jazeera is on, but who's side is AP on?

Thanks to R.

Bombshell: Al Qaeda Recruiting Middle Class Youths ... Online

I mean, I'm glad Interpol is discussing the problem. But, um, these guys are just now figuring this out?

Interpol press release (emphasis mine):

PARIS, France – An international gathering of senior police officials focusing on terrorism and the prevention of the radicalization of youth has heard the head of INTERPOL describe the era of the Internet as easing the path to radicalization, which he said was a global threat that only international police networks could fully address.

Speaking at the two-day International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) summit (21-22 September) in Paris – alongside IACP President Michael Carroll and the Director of the French National Police, Frédéric Péchenard – INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said that terrorist recruiters exploited the web to their full advantage as they targeted young, middle class vulnerable individuals who were usually not ‘on the radar of law enforcement’.

“The advent of the Internet has made the process of radicalization easier to achieve and the process of combating it that much more difficult, because many of the behaviors associated with it are not in and of themselves criminal,” said Secretary General Noble.

The threat is global; it is virtual; and it is on our doorsteps,” said the head of INTERPOL, pointing to the ‘skyrocketing’ number of extremist websites, from 12 in 1998 to 4,500 just eight years later.

Mr Noble said that preventing radicalization required police to use international police networks, and that in this respect INTERPOL was uniquely placed to support police worldwide as a network of law enforcement agencies from 188 member countries, linking police worldwide via its I-24/7 global police communications system, global databases and network of National Central Bureaus, so as to empower front-line officers with access to the information they need to establish the links between terrorism and other criminal activities.

With INTERPOL having created its database of stolen and lost travel documents (SLTD) in response to the threat posed by terrorists using fraudulent passports to plan or carry out attacks, the world police body’s chief said that with more than 22 million records submitted by more than 150 countries, the database was the only global repository of its kind.

The police summit also heard that through INTERPOL’s global network of anti-terrorist specialists, that more than 120 member countries contribute data on active terrorist groups through INTERPOL’s Fusion Task Force, its primary counter-terrorism initiative. The registry includes close to 10,000 names of wanted or suspected terrorists.

“It is only through INTERPOL’s network that this type of information can be disseminated quickly throughout the world in order for law enforcement to effectively counter the virtual base of operations which extremists exploit on the Internet,” said Mr Noble.

The two-day IACP summit, which also brings under its umbrella FRANCOPOL, the association representing the international French-speaking police community, will review the issue of youth in terrorist and radical activities, recruitment methods by terrorist recruiters, as well as the role of law enforcement in de-radicalization programmes and prevention strategies.

I'm not sure how Interpol is going to "effectively counter" the eJihad, but at least it's a topic of conversation. Five years ago this was on nobody's radar screen.

Obama, the Left, and "Acceptable Losses"

"We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger." -- President Obama

Actually, Obama is right: the terrorists are not an existential threat to the continued existence of the United States of America. That is, there is literally nothing they can come up with that would damage us so badly as to call it quits.

Nothing.

Worst case scenario: they build a dirty bomb and kill a few thousand people in a major city.

Which was about the extent of the damage done on 9/11.

And we're still here, right? No biggie.

At least, that's how Ace sees the quote in context:

But the left is pushing this idea that we can safely "absorb" many new 9/11's with an eye towards getting us to "accept" the greater bargain they fatuously offer -- peace, and a general wind-down of post-9/11 security "overreactions" like the FBI tracking Muslims suspected of terrorist ties. If only we didn't overreact to the occasional mass-murder, we could go about our business without war, without increased security measures, without "Islamophobia," without the rest of it.
Read the rest. It's Ace at his throat-slitting best.

Let me only add that an act of war is fundamentally different than an automobile accident. Only a moron or a lawyer would ever equate the two. Sure, people die. Often I hear people say something like: dead is dead, it doesn't matter to the family why the person died.

Hogwash. Intentionality matters. Which is why a car accident is a tragedy. 9/11 was not tragedy. It was an atrocity.

Which is why the families of murder victims have a completely different experience than the families of cancer victims.

Further, acts of terror like 9/11 was directed at the entire nation. We were all victims.

Nobody could reasonably claim that all sober drivers are victimized by drunk drivers. A drunk driver doesn't intentionally kill. But even if he did he doesn't randomly kill sober drivers in an effort to hurt the entire class of people known as "sober drivers".

The comparisons are silly.

Stakelbeck on Terror: Roundtable on the Muslim Brotherhood in America

From Stakelback:

On this week's special edition of Stakelbeck on Terror I’m joined by an expert panel in discussing a jihadist organization what many consider the greatest long-term threat to America’s national security: The Muslim Brotherhood.

Watch as former FBI special agent John Guandolo, ex-CIA officer Brian Fairchild and leading investigative journalist Patrick Poole break down the Brotherhood's history, its goals and its infiltration of leading U.S. government and educational institutions.

It’s an in-depth discussion on the Brotherhood’s American nexus that you won’t see on any other network.

Here is a breakdown of the segments:

Segment 1: The Brotherhood’s History (top of the show)

Segment 2: The Brotherhood’s American Network (5:52 into the show)

Segment 3: The Brotherhood on Campus and Beyond (11:22 into the show)

Segment 4: The Brotherhood: An Insurgency with Nazi Ties (17:22 into the show)

Segment 5: The Brotherhood’s Leading American Front Group: CAIR (22:20 into the show)

And stay tuned to the October 4th edition of Stakelbeck on Terror for the conclusion of my discussion on the Muslim Brotherhood: we’ve established that there is a problem. Now what is the solution?

Update by Howie: Ahh a double post. Jawas on the ball. I removed the other post from the front page. If for some reason you want to view that one or have comments there.

Vietnam War Hero: President Presents Posthumous Medal of Honor to Chief Master Sgt. Richard L. Etchberger's Sons

etchberger_radar_site.jpg

Via DOD

WASHINGTON, Sept. 21, 2010 – President Barack Obama today presented the Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry to the family of an Air Force chief master sergeant killed in action 42 years ago in Laos.

“Today, we present the Medal of Honor to an American who displayed such gallantry more than four decades ago: Chief Master Sgt. Richard L. Etchberger,” the president said at a White House ceremony. “This medal reflects the gratitude of an entire nation.”

Etchberger’s brother, Robert, and sons, Cory Etchberger, Richard Etchberger and Steve Wilson, attended the ceremony.

The president detailed Etchberger’s actions as he fought through the night of March 11, 1968, holding off the enemy, calling in air strikes and loading three fellow servicemembers into an evacuation helicopter before he was shot by enemy forces who overran his worksite - a secret radar installation manned by Air Force technicians disguised as civilians.

Lima Site 85, set above the clouds on a steep mountaintop in nominally neutral Laos housed a radio transmitter – later upgraded to a radar installation - dedicated to directing U.S. air-to-ground bombing in North Vietnam from 1966 to 1968. The battle at Lima Site 85 resulted in the largest Air Force ground combat loss of the Vietnam War.

“Of those 19 men on the mountain that night, only seven made it out alive,” Obama said. “Three of them owed their lives to the actions of Dick Etchberger.”

During a “small, private” Pentagon ceremony in the winter of 1968, Etchberger’s wife, Catherine, and sons were presented with an Air Force Cross, Obama said, but public awareness of Etchberger’s actions didn’t occur until the Air Force declassified his mission in 1986.[More..]

God Bless you for your heroism, RIP.

Good News: Mass Terror Attack in Europe Expected

It's DEBKA, but the sources seem reliable:

The high level of preparedness for terrorist attack - "reinforced red" - maintained in France since Sept. 16 was quietly expanded this week to most of the big international air hubs of Europe, including London's Heathrow, Amsterdam's Schiphol andairports in Moscow, Berlin and Rome. Security measures were also redoubled at the important railways and subway stations of Europe.

The commander of French police and security services Frederic Pechenard went on the air Wednesday Sept 22 with a statement for the public: "I'm not here to frighten people," he said, "but we have serious evidence coming in from reliable intelligence sources telling us that there is a risk of a major attack." He declined to say whether the alert level had been raised from "reinforced red" to "reinforced scarlet." He said the danger could come in the form of "the assassination of an important figure or an attempted mass casualty attack on a crowded public area like a metro train or department store."

The potential "martyrs" are said to be women. More details at DEBKA.

Awesome: Zionist Cyber Missile to Attack Iran

You have no chance to survive, make your time:

Cyber security experts say they have identified the world's first known cyber super weapon designed specifically to destroy a real-world target – a factory, a refinery, or just maybe a nuclear power plant.

The cyber worm, called Stuxnet, has been the object of intense study since its detection in June. As more has become known about it, alarm about its capabilities and purpose have grown. Some top cyber security experts now say Stuxnet's arrival heralds something blindingly new: a cyber weapon created to cross from the digital realm to the physical world – to destroy something.

At least one expert who has extensively studied the malicious software, or malware, suggests Stuxnet may have already attacked its target – and that it may have been Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant, which much of the world condemns as a nuclear weapons threat.

All your base are belongs to us!

AQIM Claims Abduction Of French In Niger

Update on this post

Google News

DUBAI (AFP) – Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb claimed the abduction of French citizens in Niger and said it will make demands to France regarding them, Al-Jazeera television reported on Tuesday.

"In announcing our claim for this operation, we inform the French government that the mujahedeen will later transmit their legitimate demands," AQIM spokesman Salah Abi Mohammed said in an audio tape played by Al-Jazeera.

"We also warn (the French government) against any sort of stupidity," he added, in reference to any possible military operation, as French military planes scouring the desert on Tuesday in an effort to locate the seven.

The statement also said Algerian Abdelhamid Abou Zeid had led the kidnap operation.

The Niger government said earlier in the day that the kidnappers were "affiliated" to a group headed by Abou Zeid, AQIM's leader in northern Mali.

We pray for the safety of the hostages.

Paris probes al Qaeda abduction claim of French nationals

French authorities are probing an al Qaeda claim that its North African branch is responsible for the kidnapping of seven hostages - including five French nationals - in northern Niger, as the search for the hostages in one of the world’s most hostile regions entered its sixth day.

The seven hostages - employees of the French nuclear group Areva and construction firm Vinci - were kidnapped last week in Arlit, a mining town in uranium rich northern Niger.

Female Leftist Activists Routinely Raped By Palestinians Silenced By Activists

Israel National News:

Two activists have exposed a disturbing phenomenon that they say is an open secret within the “peace camp”: female “peace” activists are routinely harassed and raped by the Arabs of Judea and Samaria with whom they have come to identify. They say the phenomenon has gotten worse lately and that many foreign women end up as wives of local Arabs against their will, but cannot escape their new homes.

...It is easy, explains Bello, “to carry out a sexual crime against a foreign girl, in her first days away from her family, in a place where no police have ever visited. And this is what happens, and has happened.”

"I was told of such rape cases by women who are not Jewish: a female European leftist activist, a female Red Cross volunteer and a young Arab woman from Yafo,” he says. He says that he met these women when he carried out IDF reserve duty, and met them afterward as well. “They told me what goes on there, in the Palestinian villages, far from any prying eye.”

"These are not just cases of rape carried out to satisfy lust,” he writes. “Usually, they are carried out systematically in order to make the girl pregnant and then take her as a wife – after she converts to Islam, of course. We know about this system from the stories of women who underwent a similar process within Israel and escaped to Europe. But it is hard to escape from the Palestinian territories. Sometimes these women – some of whom are no longer young – are never allowed to leave their homes unaccompanied, in order to forestall their escape.”

Outrage from leftist feminists in 5 4 3 2....never.

Obama We Can Absorb a Terrorist Attack

talibanfbpiclarge.JPG

WAPO:

Woodward's book portrays Obama and the White House as barraged by warnings about the threat of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil and confronted with the difficulty in preventing them. During an interview with Woodward in July, the president said, "We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger."

bama is shown at odds with his uniformed military commanders, particularly Adm. Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. David H. Petraeus, head of U.S. Central Command during the 2009 strategy review and now the top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan.

Sure we can absorb a terrorist attack. No problem.......I mean Obi-One has a nice bunker.

See that image above. I took that image from the Pakistani Taliban's facebook page (it is linked on the image). The US Department of State and Treasury recently declared Tehrik e Taliban Pakistan an officially designated terrorist group. So lets all play PWN the Taliban!

Anyway does that image above make you feel any better about President Obama's opinion that we can absorb a terrorist attack or two?

DEBKAfile vs Shark

DEBKA jumps it. I'm not linking Crazy.

The US and Saudi Arabia are in advanced talks on transferring Osama bin Laden and his Al Qaeda fighting force out of Afghanistan and Pakistan to a new location, DEBKA-Net-Weekly reveals. His removal would clear Taliban leader Mullah Omar's path to a negotiated end to the war in Afghanistan.

Maybe advanced talks simply means purchasing airline tickets. Seriously? Is a rocket launcher considered a carry on?

Congress to go after Evil Teenagers Worldwide. Terrorists? Not so much.

Some in Congress want to police the world for illegal downloading of music and movies. I'm not saying it's okay to illegally share intellectual property, but let's have some perspective here.

No one, to my knowledge, has died in the process of sharing a Lady Gaga's Poker Face. Nor has her music inspired any one to do anything harmful.

They said the masked attackers, believed to be members of Hamas's secret security units, beat and bound the two guards before pouring gasoline and torching the main buildings and tents on Sept. 19.
Yes, Gaza has a water park. Make that had.

The next time some a-hole drones on about "the siege of Gaza" remind them of this.

Drone strikes breaking out everywhere....

Where to start..... the strikes are getting to numerous to document on a case by case basis. several drone strikes over the past couple of days. The most recent ones have killed 19 bad guys.

At least 19 people were killed in two drone attacks in South and North Waziristan on Tuesday. According to sources, the first drone attack was occurred in Azam Warsak in which US drone fired two missiles at the office of Shamsullah a commander of militant group Maulvi Nazir Ahmed. At least 12 people were killed in this attack. Whereas, 7 people were killed in South Waziristan where the airstrike targeted a vehicle in Bundh area bordering Afghanistan
Then there is this curious news item.....Three Pakistani intelligence officials say a suspected U.S. missile strike has killed seven alleged militants in eastern Afghanistan's Paktika province.

Claim: Yemen Has Anwar al-Awlaki Surrounded -- UPDATE: Yemen denies

I'll believe it when I see the American citizen and spiritual leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Guantanamo. Or, better yet, in a body bag.

And the one question on everyone here at The Jawa Report's mind: Is Samir Khan holed up with Awlaki, too?

The website alganob.net reports that Awlaki has been surrounded. Here's a Googlish translation of the report:

Awlaqi and leading Annaasramahasrp between Arabia and the army poised to storm the area Alihutp Shabwah

Said a senior government official in Shabwa to the nation that al Qaeda operatives in the village of Altsnyen Alihutp rejected the mediation made by the social figures, the hand of the security forces themselves.

The official said that the armed forces stationed in preparing to storm the area east of Yemen on the Elimination of al-Qaeda members in the coming hours.

While the official pointed out that the number of militants from al Qaeda between 25 to 60 armed noted that unconfirmed information required Awlaqi Anwar presence of the U.S. authorities and one of the Saudi al-Qaeda leaders surrounded.

The source of security to the homeland that the exchange of fire is being heavily between al Qaeda militants and troops from the army and the security wounding 3 soldiers and citizens Mon

The source explained that al Qaeda militants using weapons of medium and light in their operations and they wanted all the cars entering the zone.

Apparently there had been an ongoing gunbattle between Yemeni security forces and those of AQAP. Some offer of mediation was made and refused. Now the Yemeni forces are said to be about to storm the holdout where 25 - 60 AQAP.

Again, hopefully one of those 25 - 60 is one Samir Khan.

The only caveat here is that the information comes from the Yemeni government. Which means anything could be true at this point. In fact, given the history Yemen has with al Qaeda, all bets are off as to whether they'll capture, kill, or just let them go.

Expect updates and keep fingers crossed.

Update by Jane: The army says is the siege will remain in effect until they surrender. About 12,000 civilians already fled of the 20,000 in town. Other reports indicate the top level AQAP was moved prior to the assault. AFP reports the AQAP rejected an offer of tribal mediation and surrender, and about 100 remain in the town and surrounding mountains. The army is still a mile or two outside the town after four days. They are randomly bombing the town according to local sources. The Yemeni military is both incompetent and corrupt. The Yemeni government deploys propaganda like a weapon. I'll believe it when I see it. My guess: 25 teen-agers are holding the town as the mid-level now disappears. Anwar doesn't seem like a jihaddi ready to fight to the death. He's going to cut and run if he's not already in Marib.

UPDATE by Rusty: Yemen now denying the report:

The Yemeni army destroyed five homes suspected of hiding al-Qaida militants Tuesday as a siege of a southern village entered its second day, but officials denied reports that U.S.-born radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was among those surrounded.

Government forces have moved into the village of Hawta with tanks and armored vehicles and thousands of people have fled the area to escape the fighting, which is part of the government's U.S.-backed campaign to uproot the terror network's local offshoot....

He said the operation has nothing to do with al-Awlaki.

"His hometown is hundreds of miles away," Albasha said.

If the spokesman for the Yemeni embassy in D.C. is so sure that he knows where Awlaki is, then why aren't they going after him?

AQAP Demands Release of General's Operative, Possible Kidnapper of German Family

In August, the Houthi rebels captured al Qaeda leader Hussain al Tais in the al Jawf province of Yemen. Al Tais is head of the al Qaeda group active in the Sa’ada province. The group is long thought to report to General Ali Mohsen al Ahmar, the president’s half brother and commander of the six wars against the (Zaidi Shiite) Houthi rebels in the northernmost Sa’ada province. The use of jihaddists as mercenaries by various branches of the military and intelligence is common in Yemen.

Upon capture, the rebels transferred al Tais to the Political Security office in Sa’ada. Yesterday al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) issued a statement indicating the terror group had kidnapped the deputy head of intelligence in Sa’ada, Ali Hosam. AQAP has demanded the release of al Tais in exchange for Hosam with a 48 hour deadline that expires Wednesday.

The al Tais al Qaeda group in Sa’ada is suspected to be behind the kidnapping of nine westerners in June 2009 in Sa’ada. Three young nurses were murdered immediately. Two toddlers were released into Saudi custody in May 2010. An infant boy, his German parents and a British man remain unaccounted for in Yemen. The nine were kidnapped near the area of the Political Security, and while Yemen immediately accused the Houthi rebels, the operation bore the hallmarks of al Qaeda. The Houthi rebels have never attacked civilians or Westerners.

Today 200 of the al Tais clan demonstrated in the capital Sanaa for the release of Hussain al Tais. With the clock ticking, the ability of German intelligence to interrogate al Tais about the remaining hostages is questionable. The fact that AQAP is agitating for a known affiliate of General Al Ahmar should put to rest questions on the degree of enmeshment between the al Qaeda terror group in Yemen and some elements of the state.

In related news, al Qaeda member Badr al Hassani, on trial for an attempted assassination of UK ambassador Tim Torlot, said yesterday in court that the head of the Yemeni Political Security Organization (PSO) had paid him to train al Qaeda terrorists in hand to hand combat in Marib province. Al Hassani demanded Ghalib al Qamish, the head of the PSO, be summoned to the trial to testify on his behalf.

Breitbart Finds Honest Liberal

Well one out of about 100+. Buy hey.

With one-in-seven Americans living in poverty, with unemployment at record levels, with an unprecedented national deficit, with foreclosures up and businesses down you’d think the Obama Administration and Democratic National Committee (DNC) would be focusing on the economy…
You’d be wrong.

Instead, the Community Organizer In Chief and the radical left is focusing its energy on stalking and harassing top conservatives and tea party patriots.

So who sent thugs to harass Breitbart? Organizing for America.

Imam Mahdi Bray Never Met a Terrorist Group He Did Not Support

Lets see this seems to be the big story today. Imam Mahdi Bray in the video below showed up to show his support for the Mosque near Ground Zero.

Lets see the video that's "taken out of context" Coutresy of Robert Spencer.

Oh and as Robert points out he has three felony convictions.

The Investigative Project points out that Bray was a co-author of the New York Times favorable opinion piece on the mosque.

A reporter who helped write the first and positive New York Times story on the Ground Zero Mosque was trained by the group run by mosque leader Feisal Abdul Rauf, according to that group's website.

Rauf's organization, the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA), touted the journalist's participation in a training program by ASMA's "Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow" (MLT).

"Media trainings showed immediate results," ASMA's 2009 year-end report said.

So he's been trained as a Hudaibiya spokesperson.

Lets see what else, oh yeah.

Mowjood previously worked as a government relations manager for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The FBI cut off communications with CAIR in 2008, citing evidence in the Hamas-support prosecution of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF). Exhibits admitted into evidence in that case place CAIR as an arm of a Hamas support network in America. Prosecutors say that CAIR was "a participant in an ongoing and ultimately unlawful conspiracy to support a designated terrorist organization, a conspiracy from which CAIR never withdrew."

And an FBI official wrote that the cut off would last "until we can resolve whether there continues to be a connection between CAIR or its executives and Hamas."

What a great spokesman to help convince the infidels of their peaceful intentions. Who will they drag out next to con me next, Usama bin-Laden? I'm sure he would be just as effective.

Terror Arrest in Chicago Like a Bad Hollywood Film

Thanks for all the tips. I'm just going to put up the FBI press release for now while I sort through the details (emphasis mine). I've also embedded a copy of the complaint and affidavit against Hassoun below.

For now I'm a bit mystified by the reporting on the case which seems almost deliberately obtuse. I keep hearing about "political motivation" but it's not clear to me exactly what that means. The affidavit claims that Hassoun "expressed his opinion that the mayor's policies had weakened Chicago's security apparatus and that he (Hassoun) wanted to do something to show it."

So, a guy wants to commit multiple acts of terror -- killing scores of people in the process -- to show that a politician isn't doing enough to protect people from terrorism? WTF??

It's like a bad Hollywood film. Which is redundant since almost all Hollywood films have this kind of plot. The "terrorist" isn't really a terrorist at all but some whacko right-winger.

And to make the surreal plot even more scripted: Hassoun also was going to be paid to do it. Presumably by someone in the evil military-industrial complex.

This entire thing is freaky-deaky wierd.

The only other thing I see in the affidavit is Hassoun wanted to help bring about a "revolution" and wanted "his guys" in office rather than Daley's. I literally have no idea what the means given his other concerns about lack of security in Chicago. Sometimes he sounds like an anarchist. At other times he sounds like he's in it only for the money.

The only hints at Islamist terror are from the undercover agent, not from Hassoun. In fact, Hassoun wanted to frame al Qaeda for the bomb (see footnote 22 of the affidavit).

He thought he was working with Islamist terrorists -- presumably Hezbollah -- but he was using them to his own ends.

Hollywood really couldn't write a more lame script.

Here's the presser:

A 22-year-old Chicago man was arrested early Sunday morning, immediately after placing a backpack which he thought contained an explosive device into a curbside trash receptacle near a crowded North Side street corner, announced Robert D. Grant, Special Agent-in-Charge of the Chicago office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and Patrick J. Fitzgerald, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

SAMI SAMIR HASSOUN, who lives in the 4700 block of North Kedzie in Chicago, was arrested just after midnight Saturday, without incident, on Seminary Avenue near the 3500 block of North Clark Street, by members of the Chicago FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). The arrest followed an investigation that accelerated in June of this year. HASSOUN was charged in a criminal complaint filed today in U.S. District Court in Chicago with one count each of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted use of an explosive device, both of which are felony offenses.

In announcing this arrest, Mr. Grant and Mr. Fitzgerald wish to emphasize that at no time was the public in danger during this investigation. The supposed explosive device was inert and provided to HASSOUN by an undercover agent. In addition, HASSOUN was under intermittent surveillance as the plot developed and the undercover agents were in regular contact with HASSOUN, monitoring his activities. There was no indication that any foreign or domestic terror groups were in any way connected to this plot or inspired HASSOUN.

According to the complaint, starting in June of this year, HASSOUN, who is a Lebanese citizen and permanent resident alien, began expressing to an associate the desire to commit acts of violence in the city for both monetary gain and to cause political transformation in Chicago. Unbeknownst to HASSOUN, his associate was secretly cooperating with the FBI and assisted with the investigation of these alleged threats.

Throughout the summer, HASSOUN allegedly discussed with this associate a number of possible targets and plots, including a biological attack on the city, poisoning Lake Michigan, attacking police officers, bombing the Sears (Willis) Tower, and assassinating the mayor. Eventually, HASSOUN is alleged to have selected the Wrigleyville area of Chicago as his target, utilizing an explosive device which he would detonate on a weekend night to inflict maximum damage.

Because of HASSOUN’s stated desire to carry out this attack, an undercover agent (UCA) was introduced to him in July by his associate. The UCA indicated that he was from California and that he had access to explosives and the expertise necessary to construct an explosive device which HASSOUN could use to carry out his plot. During this and subsequent meetings with the UCA, at which time a second UCA was also introduced, HASSOUN allegedly discussed several possible plots and scenarios in which he could dramatically impact the city and force the mayor to resign. HASSOUN eventually settled on a bombing outside a crowded Wrigleyville nightclub as the first step in his plan.

The complaint indicates that HASSOUN met with the UCA late on Saturday night, at which time he was provided a backpack which he thought contained a high powered explosive device. HASSOUN was shown the various components of the device and instructed on its operation. Although the explosive device was designed to look real, it in fact was constructed by the FBI of inert materials and was incapable of detonating.

HASSOUN and the UCA then left together in a rented vehicle, en route to the Wrigleyville area, where the bombing would take place. HASSOUN was under constant surveillance and agents watched as he placed the fake explosive device into a trash receptacle, after which he was arrested and the fake device recovered.

The complaint indicates that HASSOUN’s motivation for planning this attack was a combination of personal greed and political motivation.

HASSOUN is scheduled to appear today at 2:40 p.m. before Magistrate Judge Susan Cox in Chicago, at which time he will be formally charged. HASSOUN has been held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in Chicago, since his arrest on Sunday. If convicted of the charges filed against him, HASSOUN faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five (5) years to a maximum of life in prison.

This case was investigated by the Chicago FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) which is comprised of FBI special agents, officers from the Chicago Police Department, and representatives from 20 federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.

The public is reminded that a complaint is not evidence of guilt and that all defendants in a criminal case are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

JPost--Hamas posted a video of kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit on Youtube on Monday, suggesting he would be killed if a deal was not soon reached.

In the animated video, two masked men are shown standing on either side of Gilad Schalit in a dark room, with one of them holding an AK-47 assualt rifle.

At the end of the 24-second video, gun shots are heard as the movie goes black and the words "Is the mission completed?" are seen written in Arabic.

Shooting At Fort (Updated)

Breaking. No details yet.

Live coverage at Fox.

Update by SH: Via Breitbart

FORT BLISS, Texas (AP) - The FBI is investigating why a retired Army sergeant walked into a Fort Bliss convenience store and shot two employees, one fatally, before he was gunned down by military police, the agency said Tuesday.

Authorities did not know whether gunman Steven Kropf, 63, of El Paso, had any relationship with either victim, the FBI said in a Tuesday statement, which described the Monday shooting at the West Texas Army post as an isolated incident.

Bettina Maria Goins, 44, of El Paso was pronounced dead at a military hospital where she was rushed immediately after the shooting, and another woman remained hospitalized Tuesday with serious injuries, the FBI said.

Both women were civilian employees of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service, which runs merchandise operations for the military, including fast-food restaurants and convenience stores.

Family & loved ones of the victims are in our thoughts and prayers.

Brits Ask YouTube to Remove al Awlaki Videos

As I've said many times, if YouTube would only treat videos glorifying terrorism in the same way they treat naked women and the unauthorized use of copyrighted music, then the problem would be reduced by 90%.

Gerald has the details. And YouTubes response to the UK government pressuring them to remove al-Awlaki's videos? No comment.

To reiterate the argument:

1) We know these videos will remain in circulation but we don't need to be doing the enemy a service by making it easier for them. YouTube means easy distribution and many many more eyeballs viewing them. Which, in turn, might translate into more recruits somewhere down the road.

2) The harder you make it for them the more likely it will be that those who continue uploading and downloading these types of videos are truly committed.

See, for instance, the dozens of Americans arrested last year arrested on terrorism related charges. Almost all of them radicalized to one extent or another online.

To put this into context a search of YouTube for "Sheikh Anwar" produces 4,170 results. "Al-Awlaki" produces 4,600. Grant it many of those results might not be strictly propaganda videos produced by the al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Some of them aren't of al-Awlaki at all. But a cursory examination of the results show that enough of them are pro-terrorism that this is not a peripheral problem.

TheZone.org, the website of Oorah’s Jewish boy’s and girl’s camps, was attacked during the anniversary week of 9/11. The hackers left a message on the website that linked back to another site with the warning: UYARI: TURKISH INTERNATIONAL MUSLIM HACKERS and “Sisteme zarar verilmemistir. Aciklarinizi kapatiniz” (Turkish for “Shut down the system”) along with an ad for the Palestinian Mavi Marmara.

“This may have only been a cyber attack,” said Oorah spokesman Cliff Meth, “but the message is clear. Who do these people target? A children’s site; a non-political organization that gives physical aid and camp scholarships to families in need. Hate groups have no conscience.”

"Most influential living Jihadi Theorist" Arrested in Jordan

abu-muhammad-al-maqdisi.jpg

His name is Abu Muhammad Asem al-Maqdisi and he was once the spiritual adviser to Abu Musab al Zarqawi until the two split over whether it was okay to murder all non-Sunnis in Iraq, or if it was only permissible to behead non-Muslims. A real moderate that one.

McCants, Brachman, and the rest of the old gang over at West Points CTC once describe al-Maqdisi as the most influential living jihadi theorist. That was back in 2006 and I suspect his star has waned, nevertheless he is a big fish with close connections to a number of terrorist groups, especially al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb. So, if the Jordanians finally manned up and arrested him (for a second time) then good on them. But if past experience is any predictor of future actions then expect him back on the streets within a couple of years preaching violent jihad.

While there is no official word as to why he was arrested the timing suggests that he was connected to two Jordanians who were plotting to kill Americans. Other speculation is that he was arrested for a new book in which he was critical of the Saudis.

Ennahar:

Jordanian security services have proceeded in the night from Friday to Saturday to the arrest of the spiritual leader of International jihadi-Salafi current, Abou Mohamed El Maqdisi, alias Assem El Barkaoui.

According to people close to the Salafi leader, the security services had convened him at a late hour in the night of Friday, but he did not return back.

Good. May he rot in jail forever.

Thanks to the akhis.

Shocka, NOT: Political Appointee Involved in Obama Justice Department Decision to Drop Black Panther Case According to Documents

Via Judicial Watch

Washington, DC -- September 20, 2010

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has forced disclosure of the existence of documents from the Department of Justice (DOJ) indicating Democratic election lawyer Sam Hirsch was involved in the DOJ decision to dismiss its voting rights case against the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense.

The records, described in a Vaughn index produced pursuant to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, contradict sworn testimony by Thomas Perez, Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division, who testified before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission that no political leadership was involved in the decision (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 10-851)).

The “Vaughn index” describes documents responsive to the lawsuit currently being withheld in their entirety by the Justice Department. The index details a series of emails between Assistant Deputy Attorney General Steve Rosenbaum and Deputy Associate Attorney General Sam Hirsch, who was described by Slate magazine as a “DC election lawyer who represents a lot of Democrats” prior to joining the Justice Department.

Somali Jihad Fail

ABC News:

Dutch police on Sunday arrested a British man of Somali ancestry at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport for possible links to a terrorist group, a spokesman for the Dutch prosecutors said.

The man was arrested after flying in from Liverpool, England, and before he flew out to Uganda, prosecutors' spokesman Evert Boerstra said, without specifying what terror group was involved. His name and age have not been released.

"He was arrested on the tip-off from British authorities," Boerstra told The Associated Press.

Dutch state broadcaster NOS reported that the suspect is allegedly linked to Somalia's most dangerous militant group, al-Shabab, which has claimed responsibility for suicide bombing attacks at U.N. facilities and other targets, including July attacks in Uganda's capital during the World Cup final that killed 76 people.

That makes me feel much better. Google won't allow me to run ads on Jawa Report anymore. Because we actually showed our readers the truth of what al-Shabaab is doing and ran a severed hand from their press release.

When Jewish Boys Bow To Allah

Hear, O Rabbis of the Lunatic Left: the jig is up. You've been found out and exposed, and your mask of sanctity is disappearing faster than the bagels at a Yom Kippur breakfast.

You can't hysterically blackmail us with your moral superiority anymore, shoving your fellow Jews into submission to the Allah-pushers, just because you think it's so adorably universalist.

Nope, the days of the liberal progressive regime are coming to an end. You can't emotionally extort us into endorsing the Ground Zero Victory Mosque, even if six hundred of you were on a conference call with the president, who begged you to turn Yom Kippur into a rally for Mosque-Building USA.

And we're not going to chirpily "dialogue" with professional Jew-haters who enjoy momentarily posing as "moderate Muslims" to gain your puppy dog trust -- and who then turn around and call us "sons of monkeys and pigs."

Nor will we join hands with you in dreaming up gossamer excuses for the Islamists' latest sharia-compliant or homicidal schemes -- just because you get a "tingle up your leg" by embracing their never-ending transgressions.

We've seen where your drama-queen histrionics are taking us -- right here in this astounding video (below), filmed by a Massachusetts mom with more righteousness in her pinkie cuticle than the whole dreary gaggle of you put together[...]

So here's where your sharia-loving, self-induced, feel-good blindness leads us. You gave the rabbinical seal of approval to this freakshow at the Boston mosque -- and now we have bar mitzvah boys on the floor, praying to Allah.

We're proud American Jews, and we're not trading in our Constitution and Torah for the Koran, now or ever -- no matter how many red-faced temper tantrums you throw.

Abu Sayyaf Terrorist Involved in Beheading American Dead!

MSNBC:

Abdukarim Sali was killed before dawn in a clash with troops and police in Lower Mangas village on Basilan island's Lantawan township — a stronghold of the al-Qaida-linked Abu Sayyaf, regional military commander Lt. Gen. Benjamin Dolorfino said.

The other militants fled, leaving Sali's body, an M16 rifle and grenade launcher, ammunition and cell phones behind.

Hunted by hundreds of troops, the militants brought their captives by speedboat to Basilan, where they took over a hospital in Lamitan town to steal medicine and snatch a hospital staff and two nurses.

American missionary Gracia Burnham survived the jungle captivity, but husband Martin and one of the Filipino nurses were killed in an army commando rescue in 2002. The third American, Guillermo Sobero, was beheaded by the militants. The other hostages were freed separately, reportedly after ransom payments.

Kunar Taliban Leader Killed

Another day, another dead Taliban leader. This time in Kunar. What really pisses me off the most about the Taliban in Kunar is the way they constantly lie about ISAF casualties. Reading the Taliban's website, you'd think thousands of US and NATO forces had been killed there over the last few years.

We don't need to inflate the numbers of bad guys killed. One is enough, when it's this guy:

A Taliban commander with links to al Qaeda was killed while plotting to attack a polling station in the northeastern province of Kunar today. Haji Mohammad, the Taliban's shadow governor for the district of Shigal, was killed by Coalition forces "in a precision airstrike," the International Security Assistance Force stated.

Mohammed was described as "a key insurgent leader" in Kunar who was behind multiple attacks against US and Afghan forces. "Mohammad orchestrated attacks on Afghans who opposed his tactics, conducted illegal checkpoints intended to intimidate local Afghans, and kidnapped wealthy individuals in order to finance his activities," ISAF said.

Mr. Bouyeri is the Islamic terrorist who ritually slaughtered Theo van Gogh on the streets of Amsterdam back in 2004, and is now serving a life sentence for the crime. Along with Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Theo van Gogh had produced a movie about the plight of women under Islam, and the murderer was thus executing the punishment for blasphemy and slander against the prophet, as required by sharia law.

Imperial Good News!!! 12 AQIM Sploded!!

raya_we are ghey.gif

Dropping like flies ain't they?

NOUAKCHOTT (Reuters) – Mauritanian military forces killed 12 members of al Qaeda's North African wing and suffered two fatalities in fighting in the desert along the border with Mali, a Mauritanian security source said on Saturday.

The clash is the latest sign of an escalation in the battle between Saharan countries and al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the chief suspect in the kidnapping of seven foreigners, including five French citizens, in Niger on Thursday.

The fighting continued on Saturday as Mauritanian forces encircled around 20 AQIM vehicles in the border area, the Mauritanian source told Reuters. In addition to those killed, four Mauritanian troops were also wounded in the fighting.

"The operation was launched because the opportunity presented itself. It was not planned long in advance," said a second security source in the Mauritanian capital Nouakchott who knew the background to the mission.

The French Foreign Ministry said there was no connection to Thursday's kidnappings, in which a French employee of nuclear firm Areva and his wife were seized.

"This action is independent of the kidnapping of Areva employees. There are no French forces on the ground," a ministry spokesman said in Paris.

Bad news is, they have hostages. Prayers for their safety...

ETIP leader killed in February Predator strike

Good News breaking out everywhere this AM.

Bill Roggio has word this morning of a past predator strike(Feb.14) killed a member of Al Qaeda's Shura Majlis.


Abdul Haq al Turkistani, a member of al Qaeda's Shura Majlis and the leader of the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Party (ETIP), a terror group that seeks to establish an Islamic emirate in western China and Central Asia, was killed in a US airstrike in Pakistan in February, US intelligence officials told The Long War Journal.

Turkistani was killed in the Feb. 14, 2010, strike on a compound in the village of Zor Babar Aidak near Mir Ali in North Waziristan, officials said. US Predators fired two missiles at the compound, which was being used as a secret training camp. Five terrorists, including Turkistani, were reported killed in the strike.

The town of Mir Ali is a known stronghold of al Qaeda leader Abu Kasha al Iraqi, an Iraqi national who is also known as Abu Akash. He has close links to the Taliban and the Haqqani Network. The Haqqani Network and Hafiz Gul Bahadar also have influence in the Mir Ali region.

The Eastern Turkistan Islamic Party is known to operate in in the Mir Ali region along with the Islamic Jihad Group, an offshoot of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.

The Pakistani government claimed in May that Turkistani had been killed, when Interior Minister Rehman Malik made an announcement during a conference in Beijing, China. At the time, Malik stated that the terror group's "back is broken" and that the group is no longer viable inside Pakistan.

Commander of Al-Qaida Killed in Yemen-U.S. Airstrike

Hey Sami......think we can't reach out and get you....think again.

CRI

The Yemen-based al-Qaida regional wing said Thursday one of its filed commanders, a former Guantanamo detainee, was killed in a Yemeni-U.S. air raid early this year.

"Hani Abdu Mosleh Shalan, a filed commander in the al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) was killed in a Yemeni-U.S. join air strike on a camp in southern Yemen early this year," said the group's statement posted on jihadist forums.

It said Shalan was caught by the U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan following the 9/11 attacks on the United States. He was sent to Guantanamo military jail for his participation in anti-U.S. war in Afghanistan alongside with Sheikh Osama bin Laden after 9/11.

The statement said Shalan was freed from Guantanamo and sent to the Yemeni authorities where he was finally released.

Early 2009 he joined the AQAP to become a leader of armed affiliate in southern Yemen where he carried out with his group a number of attacks against Western and Yemeni interests, according to the statement.

US Couple Accused Of Trying To Pass Nuclear Secrets To Venezula

Hmmm, linked to the FNC busted Venezuela terror flight ?

BBC/Canada

The US has charged a pair of former nuclear contractors with attempting to leak nuclear secrets to Venezuela.

The husband and wife team were arrested on Friday in New Mexico and accused of passing nuclear information to an FBI agent posing as a Venezuelan spy.

US citizens Pedro and Marjorie Mascheroni were contractors at Los Alamos National Laboratory, a centre of US nuclear research.

The US justice department did not accuse Venezuela of wrongdoing.

"The conduct alleged in this indictment is serious and should serve as a warning to anyone who would consider compromising our nation's nuclear secrets for profit," Assistant Attorney General David Kris said in a statement.

Five men were arrested in London over an alleged terror plot against the pope on Friday, according to police.

Pope Benedict XVI is in England's capital on the second day of a four-day visit in the country.

According to cops, the men were between the ages of 26 and 50. They were arrested at a business in central London. Authorities would not say if the men were British or divulge their nationality.

Police said they received notice of a potential plot against the pope overnight, which resulted in the arrest of the men early Friday morning. The men are currently being questioned and no charges have been filed.

A piece of rocky desert moonscape , the blood red sun is setting in the background. There are “expended” mujahideen strewn about. A few, riderless warhorses are wandering aimlessly, reins dragging. In the foreground a shredded al-Raya lies in the dirt , speared through by the shaft of RavenWraithe’s battle standard, (twin Ravens perched on human skulls). Countless big Northern Ravens are circling overhead, and on the ground there are two Ravens plucking video thumbnail pics out of the hollow eye sockets of the “expended” mujahideen. The soundtrack is Twisted Sisters “We’re Not Gonna Take It”.......

Will America Ban Criticism of Islam?

Interesting article at Canada Free Press by Daniel Greenfield

In 1935 Sinclair Lewis wrote It Can’t Happen Here, a novel about the rise of tyranny in America, whose message was that it indeed can happen here. Just to remind us that in fact it “can happen here”, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer used the occasion of his appearance on noted legal forum, Good Morning America, to suggest that there may not be any First Amendment protection for burning the Koran.

“Holmes said it doesn’t mean you can shout ‘fire’ in a crowded theater,” Breyer told me. “Well, what is it? Why? Because people will be trampled to death. And what is the crowded theater today? What is the being trampled to death?”

Breyer’s statement was every bit as flippant and ignorant of the Constitution and even previous Supreme Court decisions as you would expect from a Clinton appointee.

To begin with, Breyer misstated what Holmes had said and what he had meant. In Schenk vs United States, Holmes wrote, “The most stringent protection of free speech would not protect a man falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic.” The key word here is “falsely”. Shouting “fire” in a crowded theater when there really is a fire, is a warning. Shouting it when there is no fire, is a malicious attempt to start a panic. Holmes used the metaphor to argue that freedom of speech was contextual, so that some speech which presented a clear and present danger in a time of war could be banned. An Anti-War argument during peacetime might be legal, but illegal in wartime.

Breyer is relying on a widely discredited decision from almost a century ago, and taking it completely out of context. It’s as if Breyer had decided to pluck Dred Scott vs Sanford, a decision made closer to the time of Schenk vs United States, than to our time, and used it to argue that companies don’t need to pay non-citizen workers anymore. No Supreme Court has actually banned political speech on the grounds that Holmes did in a very long time.

What Breyer is proposing smacks of an attempt to reintroduce WW1 security measures back into law, measures that were widely considered illegal even at the time, and that next to slavery and prohibition, represent low points in American jurisprudence. The same liberal civil rights activists who warned us that the Patriot Act was scary and totalitarian, will of course have nothing to say about Breyer’s flirtation with laws that make the Patriot Act seem like Woodstock.

I don't condone Qu'ran burning but I will fight for any idiots right to do it. Bibles burned? No biggy US Flags burned? No biggy But to burn a Qu'ran is a no no? What about burning the black/war/flag of jihad - Ar-Raya, will that be off limits too?

Eye Candy: Meet Jeremy

O.My.Gawd, wow, what a hunk!

Sorry guyz but females also need eye candy especially this kind:

Firefighters Calendar.org

All proceeds received from sales of the Houston Fire Fighter Calendar goes directly to the 501c3 Fund to help children burned or crippled by accidents or fires. To date, the Fund has raised over $1.5 million to help area children. The Fund provides bandages, wheel chairs, prostetic limbs, and other items the children may require. The Fund and calendar project was started because the Fire fighters of Houston had no way to help the children they see injured after the initial accident. The Fund gives the Fire Fighters the mechanism they need to continue helping through the recovery process.

The Fund also co-sponsors CAMP JANUS. This summer camp gives burned children from age 5 to 15 the chance to be around other children who have suffered serious burn injuries.

The camp is staffed by volunteers from the Houston Fire Department, Hermann Hospital, Shriner's Burn Institute, and some adult burn survivors from around the community. All of these volunteers are dedicated, positive role models that seek to provide a quality camp environment.

Autumn in France

With the sultry days of summer now over and the crisp breezes of autumn blanketing the European continent, the French Director of Culture has issued a map of locations to visit for best viewing of the cars changing color.


Car Fires in France-map.jpg

Realize that the depiction of cars driving on the Mediterranean Sea and the English Channel is in error. Oddly, though, the map strongly indicates that cars which can drive on water won 't change color.

Nevertheless, my analysis may be flawed. If so, I'll defer to an alternative discussion.

Shocka - NOT: Al-Qaeda on Capitol Hill: Congressional Muslim Staffers Association Embraces Islamic Radicals and Terrorists

Anwar_al-Awlaki.jpg

Big Peace

When a report challenging our national security policy of ignoring Islamic supremacism through Islamic law, “Shariah: The Threat to America,” was released during a Capitol Hill press conference on Wednesday (disclosure: I was one of the co-authors of the report), among the chief critics were representatives from the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association (CMSA). This group, which has been briefing both Democrat and Republican congressional leadership in recent months that there is nothing inherently violent in Islamic law, has a very poor history of embracing Islamic radicals and even Al-Qaeda terrorists.[More]

Routine Document Burning By ISAF Prompts A Idiot To Think They Were Burning A Qu'ran

Armed man shot after protest

WASHINGTON, Sept. 16, 2010 – An International Security Assistance Force servicemember shot and killed a man who aimed an assault rifle at servicemembers in a guard tower during a protest at Forward Operating Base Mirwais in the Chorah district of Afghanistan’s Uruzgan province today, military officials reported.

Initial reports indicate a protest of about 100 Afghan civilians turned violent when protesters began throwing rocks at coalition forces, officials said.

ISAF officials said in a written statement that the servicemember shot the man in accordance with the rules of engagement, and that protesters pulled the man away before ISAF servicemembers were able to identify his status.

The protest is reported to have been held in response to an alleged Quran burning inside the base yesterday, officials said, adding that the suspected burning was a routine burn-pit session in which ISAF documents are destroyed.

Oh noes........there's smoke, must be da Qu'ran.

For the second time in less than a month, security forces hunting for Taliban commanders found one hiding inside an oven, officials said Thursday.

In the latest incident Tuesday, a sub-commander allegedly responsible for attacks in three districts was found hiding in a floor oven of a compound when Afghan and coalition forces raided the location in Logar province in eastern Afghanistan.

On August 31, NATO-led troops found another sub-commander hiding in an oven, breathing through a tube, the International Security Assistance Force said.

Slum Lord GZM Imam Rauf & Wife Khan Missed Court Date Because He Was Stressed Over?

Wise Infidels?

While the Imam behind plans for a mosque near Ground Zero was jetting around the globe and advocating for his Downtown project, a pair of dilapidated apartment buildings he owns in New Jersey fell into such disrepair that cops have to stand watch in the event of a fire.

The fire watch, at taxpayer expense, was revealed during a court hearing today when Union City lawyers asked to have two buildings owned by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf placed into receivership so that rent s could be used to fix dozens of violations, including inoperable alarms and sprinklers.

Rauf skipped today’s hearing as did his wife Daisy Khan. Their lawyer, Tomas Espinosa, said he didn’t know why the Imam didn’t come to court.

“There have been a lot of stress on these people,” Espinosa said when asked after the hearing to explain why Rauf was a no-show “The legal process will show that my client is an honorable man that has taken care of his property.”

Stress? Feckin stress? Talk to those who lost loved ones on 9/11..

Besides, taxpayers are pickin up the tab during your feckin stress period.

Thanks to Barry.

This support includes a check for $42,000 – the maximum allowable donation that we have provided to all of our nominees – which the NRSC will send to her campaign today.

Another drone strike kills 3 in Datta Khel(FOURTH in Two days...)

Working the Datta Khel area over again.....going after the Haqqani network.

The Nation

The fourth drone strike in two days killed three more people in Datta Khel, bringing the total toll to at least 33. Earlier it was reported that at least 30 people were killed in three drone attacks in various areas of North Waziristan Agency. In the third incident since Tuesday morning, the US drones fired 10 missiles in Dargah Mandi area of Miranshah which killed 14 people. Earlier on Tuesday, the drones launched two attacks in Shawal and Qutub Khel area of the Agency which resulted in the death of 16 people. The pre-dawn attack – the third in less than 24 hours – was directed at the Haqqani network, a Pakistan-based group which is one of the toughest foes for foreign forces in neighbouring Afghanistan. “Several US drones fired seven missiles at two militant compounds early this morning, killing at least five militants,” a senior security official told a foreign news agency.
What you have going on here is the drones hit a target..then watch to see where the bleeders run........ and listen to intercepts...............hit next target.... watch .......listen......repeated again... again....again...again.

UPDATE (Matt Damon): Interesting report .... Until it is confirmed by a US or Taliban source treat with a huge grain of salt......but it looks like a Haqqani cousin.. just became the most recent HVT kill..

Hindustantimes

An Afghan Taliban commander and close relative of Afghan warlord Sirajuddin Haqqani was among those killed in a recent US missile strike, Pakistani security officials said on Wednesday. A US drone fired two missiles into a vehicle in Qutabkhel village in North Waziristan tribal district on Tuesday, killing four militants.

"Afghan Taliban commander Saifullah travelled to the region from Afghanistan three days ago and was killed in yesterday's US missile strike," a senior security official in the area told AFP.

The information was based on intelligence intercepts, the official said.

He described Saifullah as the first cousin of Sirajuddin Haqqani, who runs the Haqqani network created by his father, Afghan warlord Jalaluddin Haqqani.

Reactions In The Islamic World On GZM Plans

MEMRI

The issue of the planned Islamic community center near Ground Zero, which has sparked a political and media storm in the U.S., has not received much prominence in the Arab press. Nevertheless, a variety of reactions have been published, most of them opposed to the construction of the mosque. Some writers called for the Cordoba Initiative, the NGO behind the project, to cancel it on the grounds that it generates tension between Muslims and non-Muslims.

Others pointed to the gap between the tolerance in the West, which allows Muslims to build a mosque even in such a sensitive location, and the lack of tolerance in Arab countries, where religious freedom is limited or non-existent, and called upon Muslims to refrain from abusing the freedom available to them in the West.

Other writers, in contrast, argued that the opposition to the construction of the Islamic center reflects growing intolerance and racism in the U.S. towards foreigners in general and Muslims in particular.

Long article but well worth the read.

Re-enactment Honors Inchon Landing’s 60th Anniversary

Wow, just wow, what a sight that must have been...

DOD

SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 15, 2010 – Inchon, South Korea, took on a movie-set quality today as U.S. Marines and their South Korean and U.N. counterparts re-enacted the massive amphibious landing 60 years ago that ultimately turned the tide in the Korean War.

About 2,500 Korean War veterans, dignitaries and local residents looked on as explosions erupted from the water, “fired” by the USS Dennis, four South Korean and one Australian ship in the waters off Wolmi Island.

Amphibious landing craft buzzed the shoreline, helicopters and fighter jets roared overhead, paratroopers dropped from the sky and 167 U.S. Marines from Twentynine Palms, Calif., scaled the seawall and stormed the beach.

Just as the action appeared to come to a close, Marine Corps Capt. Michael Borneo thrilled the crowd as he marched across the beach amid a flurry of confetti, costumed as Army Gen. Douglas MacArthur, with fellow Marines depicting his key officers in tow.

They demonstrated what Army Gen. Walter L. “Skip” Sharp, commander of United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command and U.S. Forces Korea, called “one of the boldest operations conducted in U.S. military history”

“This history-making operation not only helped to turn the tide of the war, but it highlighted the kind of cooperation between our services and between the nations that continue to help keep the Republic of Korea free today,” Sharp told Korean War veterans attending the 60th anniversary commemoration.

Navy Adm. Patrick M. Walsh, commander of U.S. Pacific Fleet, praised the “undaunting courage” exhibited during the operation -- one that “had been dismissed as not doable” by many due to extreme tide shifts.

“It’s humbling,” Walsh said. “We are standing in the shadow of giants.”

MacArthur, who had pressed for the surprise attack to take place while the main North Korean fighting force had focused its effort on the southeast, finally overcame those challenging his plan, and “Operation Chromite” was launched Sept. 15, 1950.

U.S. and South Korean Marines, along with their counterparts from Australia, Canada, France, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, launched the landing in three separate locations.

Lead elements of 10th Corps hit “Green Beach” on the north side of Wolmi Island. Its landing force consisted of 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, and nine M26 Pershing tanks from the 1st Tank Battalion.

Meanwhile, Combat Team 5, which included 3rd Battalion South Korean Marines, scaled the seawalls along “Red Beach.” After overpowering the North Korean defenses, they opened the causeway that enabled tanks from Green Beach to enter the fight.

To the south, the 1st Marine Regiment arrived at “Blue Beach,” where they encountered little resistance because North Korean forces already had surrendered.

The successes in Inchon ultimately broke the North Korean army’s supply lines and paved the way to the liberation of Seoul in late September 1950.

South Korean Lt. j.g. Junsung Lee called the surprise nature of the attack a key in catching the North Koreans off-guard.

“The Inchon landing operation was crucial for us to take back the initiative,” he said. “It was a key event.”

William Cheek, a Marine corporal assigned to an anti-tank assault unit during the operation, recalled during today’s ceremonies the challenges he and his fellow Marines encountered. After overcoming 30-foot tides in Inchon Harbor, their amphibious landing vessel Amtrak got stalled in the sand, forcing Cheek to dash about 100 yards across the beach, dodging North Korean tank and infantry fire.

Ultimately, they fought their way to Seoul, supported every step of the way by South Korean civilian volunteers.

Standing beneath a giant Ferris wheel on the landing beach that’s blossomed as a popular tourist attraction, Cheek said he felt proud to see South Korea become “a modern economic miracle.”

“I’m glad some of us were able to help make that possible,” he said, “helping drive out the elements trying to enslave a great nation.”

Navy Vice Adm. Scott R. Van Buskirk, who assumed command of the U.S. 7th Fleet in Japan last week, said the Inchon landing provides a classic example of the Navy-Marine “blue-green team” concept. It also underscores the importance of amphibious landing capabilities that remain critical today, he added.

Marine Corps 1st Sgt. Alex Leibfried, led 167 members of 1st Battalion, 7th Marines, who stormed the beach during today’s reenactment, and he said it felt good to get the opportunity to demonstrate those capabilities.

“It’s probably the No. 1 way we come ashore,” the 18-year veteran said. “It’s good seeing that the Marine Corps is finally getting back to its amphibious roots.”

God Bless those who gave all, veterans and current members of our wonderful military. You are my heroes!

On the Advice of the FBI, Cartoonist Molly Norris Disappears From View

The religion of pieces is showing their love for her:

You may have noticed that Molly Norris' comic is not in the paper this week. That's because there is no more Molly.

The gifted artist is alive and well, thankfully. But on the insistence of top security specialists at the FBI, she is, as they put it, "going ghost": moving, changing her name, and essentially wiping away her identity. She will no longer be publishing cartoons in our paper or in City Arts magazine, where she has been a regular contributor.

She is, in effect, being put into a witness-protection program—except, as she notes, without the government picking up the tab. It's all because of the appalling fatwa issued against her this summer, following her infamous "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" cartoon

Her cartoon wasn't even offensive but ole pedophile mo is off limits.

Venezuela Cancels Round-Trip 'Terror Flight' to Syria and Iran

Hmmmm

A Venezuelan airline's “mystery” flight that shuttled among the capitals of three of the world’s most terror-friendly nations — Venezuela, Syria and Iran — has abruptly canceled its regularly scheduled departures amid accusations that it was used primarily to transport spies, terrorists and lethal cargo among the pariah counties.

“I am sorry, but we are no longer flying to Tehran and I do not know when the flights will resume. It was a flight that left Caracas on Tuesdays, but it no longer does,” Jenny Gil Romero, who handles international departures for Conviasa, the national airline that operates the flight, said in a message to FOX News.

Messages to the airline seeking further information went unanswered.

Romero's comments came in response to FOXNews.com's efforts to buy tickets on the regularly scheduled, 48-hour round trip from Caracas to Damascus to Tehran, then back again.

Intelligence analysts with both the CIA and Israel said that, despite the listing of the flight as a regular commercial route and a code share with Iran air -- Flight IR744 is also Flight VO3744 -- there was no way that anyone could buy a ticket and travel without being vetted by the Venezuelan or Iranian government.And without passport controls, flight manifests and other documents, it meant some of the world's most dangerous men could travel without fear of being uncovered.

Curiously, unlike most other bookings on the national airline, calls for reservations on this particular flight were routed to a cell phone in Argentina, rather than to Conviasa's regular service in Caracas.

"A police bomb disposal team examined a number of mortars that were fired today. We can confirm that two out of the nine mortars contained phosphorous," Rosenfeld added.

Haim Yalin, head of the Eshkol Regional Council where the phosphorous mortars landed, told the Post, "These weapons have been banned by the Geneva convention. They cause burns among victims and they kill. This is an agricultural area, and we now have to explain to farmers how to deal with burns in light of the new mortars."

IDF responded enough is enough you splodey & soon to be splodey dopes.

Meanwhile, Hamas PM Ismail Haniyeh's bodyguard is burning, errr, has been arrested by Egyptian authorities and charged with smuggling gold into the Gaza Strip.

Peace talk stuff besides the uptake of rockets being fired into Israel: Egypt's state-run newspaper has come under fire for altering a photograph to suggest President Hosni Mubarak was leading the Middle East peace talks.

Al-Ahram showed Mr Mubarak walking on a red carpet ahead of US President Barack Obama as well as the Israeli, Palestinian and Jordanian leaders.

French Approve Burqa Ban

Woman Face Burqa.jpg

(Paris, France) According to polling, there is overwhelming support for the burqa ban in France.
The French Senate approved Tuesday a law banning any veils that cover the face -- including the burqa, the full-body covering worn by some Muslim women -- making France the first European country to plan such a measure.

The law passed by a vote of 246 to 1, with about 100 abstentions coming essentially from left-leaning politicians.

The legislation was overwhelmingly approved by the lower house of parliament in July and will go into effect next spring.

Meanwhile, only minutes after the burqa ban was approved, the Eiffel Tower was evacuated on a bomb scare that followed an al-Qaeda warning. About 25,000 people were ushered away from the landmark.

Police conducted a level-by-level search but didn't find any bomb.

Good News: Zawahiri Still Wasting Oxygen

zawahiritakingitsmall.JPG

Today al-Qaeda's as-Sahab media released a new message from Ayman al-Zawahiri. Its significant if only because we've not heard from old blister head in quite a while. We have the video. Its just a still image over Zawahiri's voice with English subtitles. If you need a copy email Howie.

I have the complete text of the message below the fold.

And if you like, please hotlink the gif images above and suck al-Qaeda's bandwidth just for the hell of it.

really stonedbegging.JPG

In the name of Allah, and all praise is due to Allah, and prayers and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah, his family, his companions and his allies.

Muslim brothers everywhere, peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah and His blessings.

As for what comes after: To begin, I send my condolences to the Muslim Ummah in Pakistan over the damage they have suffered as a result of the recent floods which struck Pakistan, and I ask Allah to have mercy on their dead and heal their injured, and compensate their widows, orphans and casualties.

How dearly I and my brothers had wished we could be in the midst of our people in Pakistan, providing them all possible aid and relief. Allah honored many of us to provide help and relief to our people in Afghanistan during the Jihad against the Communists, and He honored a number of us by choosing them for Jihad and then for martyrdom in His Path on the pure soil of Afghanistan; and some of us combined the two honors of relief work and Jihad, such as the martyr – as we see him – Abu Abdul Rahman al-Kanadi (may Allah have mercy on him), who was killed at the hands of the mercenary Pakistan army which is an agent of the forces of the Global Crusade.

How dearly we had wished we could continue doing what we did in Afghanistan in Kashmir and Pakistan, but the treasonous ruling class in the Pakistani government and army came – and continues to come – between us and this honor, as a service to the senior criminals in Washington, London and Tel Aviv.

I would like to remind our people in Pakistan that the glaring governmental failure to relieve them is the result of their keeping silent about the deteriorating conditions and corrupt state of affairs in Pakistan. The robber president can’t deal with his people’s tragedy because he’s too busy repairing his relations with the West in Paris and London, and while there, spending huge amounts of money on luxury hotels and the limousines which transport him and his army of hypocrites, at a time when the Pakistani nation is in need of every rupee in order to relieve those affected. Meanwhile, the mercenary puppet army can’t provide relief to Muslims in the flood-hit regions because it’s too busy killing Muslims and razing their villages in the tribal areas.

The silence of our people in Pakistan towards these corrupt corrupters is the reason for this obvious incapability and failure in relieving them; and it is the cause of the catastrophes which have befallen Pakistan. The primary concern of the ruling class in the government and army of Pakistan is filling their domestic and foreign bank accounts with dollars; and as far as they are concerned, Pakistan and its people can go to hell.

I would also like to advise myself and our people in Pakistan that al-Mawla [the Guardian] –subhaanahu wa ta’ala – is the only one capable of lifting harm from us, and is the only one who is able to harm and benefit. Al-Haqq [the Truth] – subhaanahu wa ta’ala – says: “Say, ‘Who delivers you from the calamities of the land and the sea, when you call upon Him in humility and in secret, saying, “If He deliver us from this, we will surely be of those who are grateful.”’ Say, ‘Allah delivers you from them and from every distress, yet you associate partners with Him.’ Say, ‘He has the power to send punishment upon you from above you or from beneath your feet, or to confuse you by splitting you into sects and making you taste the violence of one another.’ See how We expound the Signs so that they may understand!” (6:63-65)

This is why, whenever any disaster befalls us, we must review ourselves and take ourselves to account for our sins and excesses. Al-Haqq – subhaanahu wa ta’ala – says: “And indeed We sent Messengers to peoples before you; then We afflicted them with poverty, wars, illness and adversity so that they might humble themselves. So when Our punishment came upon them, why then didn’t they humble themselves? Instead, their hearts were hardened all the more and Satan made all that they did seem fair to them.” (6:42-43)

So our people in Pakistan must repair their relations with their Lord, and resolve to repent of every excess they have committed against themselves and every deviation they have made from ‘Aqeedah [doctrine] and Shari’ah [law].

No one is unaware of the extent of the spread of deviations from Islam among many of the people of Pakistan. At the level of ‘Aqeedah, many adhere to the doctrine of secularism, which doesn’t rule by Shari’ah and looks at Islam as being a mere set of personal rituals which doesn’t extend beyond the walls of the home and Masjid. And many seek refuge in the graves and don’t devote their prayers to al-Mawla – subhaanahu – alone, and they perform the polytheistic acts and innovations which accompany that, although al-Mawla – subhaanahu wa ta’ala – is the only one who harms, benefits, sustains, gives life, causes death, guides and sends astray. Al-Haqq – subhaanahu wa ta’ala – says: “And all places of worship belong to Allah; so call not on anyone beside Allah. And when the slave of Allah [Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam] stood up calling on Him, they ganged up against him in opposition. Say, ‘I pray to my Lord only, and I associate no one with Him.’ Say, ‘I have no power to do you either harm or good.’ Say, ‘No one can protect me from Allah, nor can I find besides Him any place of refuge.’” (72:18-22)

And the Prophet – sallallahu alayhi wa sallam – says: “If you ask, then ask Allah, and if you seek help, then seek help with Allah…” [Musnad Ahmad]

As for violation of the rules of Shari’ah, the government of Pakistan and its army and security organs have become deeply involved in waging war on the Mujahideen in Afghanistan and Pakistan, whose only crime is that they challenge, resist and perform Jihad against the unbelieving Crusader invader trespassing on the realms of the Muslims and their sanctities in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Thus, the government of Pakistan and its army and security organs have implicated themselves in one of the greatest of sins. Al-Haqq – subhaanahu wa ta’ala – says: “O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as friends. They are friends of each other. And whoso among you takes them as friends is indeed one of them. Allah does not guide wrongdoing people.” (5: 51)

So al-Mawla – subhaanahu – counted those who help the Jews and Christians against the Muslims as being from the Jews and Christians, as shown by His statement, “And whoso among you takes them as friends is indeed one of them.”

Then al-Mawla explained that the reason for this loyalty to the unbelievers and helping of them against the believers is concern for the temporary belongings of this life and fear of losing them. He – subhaanahu – says in the following Ayat [sign/verse]: “So you see those in whose hearts is a disease rushing [to serve] them, saying, ‘We fear lest a misfortune befall us.’ Perhaps Allah will bring about victory or some other event from Himself. Then they will regret what they hid in their souls.” (5:52)

So reflect, O you Muslim concerned for his religion and eager to be saved from the anger of Allah in this life and the next, on the argument made by the apostate hypocrites and recorded by the noble Qur’an. Isn’t it the same argument made by the government of Pakistan and its army and security organs? Isn’t their argument: “Out of fear for our interests and the interests of Pakistan, we have decided to kill Muslims in Afghanistan and Pakistan, destroy their villages, burn their houses and expel and displace them by the millions”?

Then the noble Ayaat make clear that with this deviance and that huge act of disobedience, the truth about them has been revealed to the believers; and that they are not benefited by their claims of faith, even if they swear the solemnest of oaths; and that their good deeds are now null and void and they shall only harvest loss. Al-Haqq – subhaanahu wa ta’ala – says: “And those who believe say, ‘Are these the ones who swore by Allah their most solemn oaths that they were with you?’ Their works are vain and they have become the losers.” (5:53)
Then the noble Ayaat explain, in a categorical fashion and with absolute clarity, that Allah will aid His religion and strengthen His friends, and that al-Mawla – subhaanahu – will quell the apostasy of these apostates by way of His righteous soldiers and slaves who perform Jihad for His pleasure, and who fear neither the hostility of the hostile nor the blame of the blamers. He says: “O you who believe! Whoso among you turns back from his religion, then let him know that Allah will soon bring in his stead a people whom He will love and who will love Him and who will be kind and humble to the believers, and hard and firm against the disbelievers. They will perform Jihad in the cause of Allah and will not fear the blame of a blamer. That is Allah's grace which He bestows upon whomsoever He pleases; and Allah is Bountiful, All-Knowing.” (5:54)

Then al-Mawla – subhaanahu – lays down a divine monotheistic doctrinal fundamental, which is that the Muslims’ loyalty and aid must only be to the religion of Allah and Sunnah [tradition] of His Prophet – sallallahu alayhi wa sallam – and to their brothers in Islam and Iman [faith], and that he who does that is from the victorious and triumphant party of Allah. He – subhaanahu – says: “Your friends are Allah and His Messenger and the believers who observe Prayer and pay the Zakaat and worship Allah alone. And those who take Allah and His Messenger and the believers for friends can rest assured that it is the party of Allah that must triumph.” (5:55-56)

Then al-Mawla warns against providing aid to or making alliances with the unbelievers who mock and make fun of the religion of Islam. He – subhaanahu – says: “O you who believe! Take not for friends those who make a jest and sport of your religion from among those who were given the Book before you, and from the disbelievers. And fear Allah if you are believers.” (5:57)

Glory be to Allah: aren’t the NATO forces which are coming and going as they please in Pakistan and being helped and supplied by the government of Pakistan and its army and security organs, aren’t these forces from the states in which the Prophet – sallallahu alayhi wa sallam – was insulted publicly on the pages of newspapers and in other media? And aren’t they the forces which humiliated the noble Qur’an in Guantanamo, Iraq and elsewhere? And aren’t the forces of the Pakistan Army the ones who contravened the rules of Shari’ah by destroying and burning Lal Masjid, and killing in it hundreds of male and female martyrs in order to get closer to America and earn its pleasure.

Isn’t Pakistan the one whose media, newspapers, books and advertisements are full of open acts of disobedience, displays of feminine beauty, and open decadence? Hasn’t Pakistan seen the spread of all types of major sins, including drinking of wine, drugs, nudity, displaying of feminine beauty, gambling, usury and perversions?

Will you not repent? Will you not come back to Islam? Will you not come back to al-Mawla – subhaanahu wa ta’ala - by correcting your beliefs, abandoning sins, and being loyal to the believers and hostile to the unbelievers?

My brothers in Pakistan: know that Allah – subhaanahu – doesn’t only punish those who commit acts of disobedience, He also punishes those who were pleased with their actions and kept silent towards them, and didn’t command them to do good and forbid them from evil with their hands, tongues and hearts; and He only delivers those who forbid evil. Al-Haqq – subhaanahu – says: “And ask them concerning the town which stood by the sea. When they profaned the Sabbath; when their fish came to them on their Sabbath day appearing on the surface of the water, but on the day when they did not keep the Sabbath, the fish would not come to them. Thus did We try them because they were rebellious. And when a party among them said to another party, ‘Why do you admonish a people whom Allah is going to destroy or punish with a severe punishment?’ They said, ‘In order to be absolved from blame before your Lord and that they may turn to righteousness.’ So when they forgot what they had been reminded of, We saved those who forbade evil and We seized the transgressors with a severe punishment because they were rebellious.” (7:163-165)

So Allah only delivered those who forbid evil, and took away the rest with a miserable punishment. Abu Bakr as-Siddiq – with whom Allah was pleased – said, “O people, you read this Ayat – ‘O you who believe! Take care of your own selves. He who goes astray cannot harm you if you yourselves are rightly guided’ (5:105) – and I heard the Messenger of Allah – sallallahu alayhi wa sallam – say, ‘If the people see the wrongdoer and don’t take him by the arm, it won’t be long before Allah afflicts them all with His punishment.’” [Musnad Ahmad]

My Muslim brothers in Pakistan: if the criminals of the contemporary Crusade against Afghanistan and Pakistan have come between us and the honor of helping you, then let our people in Pakistan accept our condolences and prayers for Allah to have mercy on them, end their distress and remove their grief. He – subhaanahu – is the One whom we worship in all circumstances.

After sending these condolences to our people in Pakistan, I remind our Muslim Ummah everywhere that nine years have passed since the beginning of the contemporary Crusade, which began with the attack on the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan.

What I want to point to here in this talk of mine isn’t the imminent victory – Allah permitting – of the Mujahideen under the banner of the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan led by the Amir of the Believers, Mulla Muhammad Umar Mujahid, may Allah protect him, for this is something which the enemy and friend have agreed about, by the grace of Allah, and no one doubts it will happen, not even the American-led Crusader coalition itself. Rather, the argument is about “when” and “how.”

I say: the imminent victory in Afghanistan – Allah permitting – isn’t what I want to point to; rather, I want to point to the lessons and examples found in the experience of nine years of confronting the Crusaders and their agents across the length and breadth of the Islamic world, from Khorasan to the Islamic Maghreb and even on the Westerners’ own soil.

I think that the most important thing which these nine years have brought to the surface is that there are two distinct orientations and currents when it comes to dealing with the doctrinally secular – but Crusader-leaning – Western aggression against the realms of Islam.

The first orientation is the orientation of Jihad, Ribaat [garrisoning on the frontlines], resolve, defense of Islam’s sanctuary and sanctities, and adherence to the principles of ‘Aqeedah; the orientation which rejects peacemaking, bargaining and coming to an understanding at the expense of beliefs, principles and values; the orientation of joining the resistance against the Crusader invaders through relying on Allah and using the little equipment, provisions and training available, and through seeking to get closer to Allah and trusting in His victory and His promise of empowerment. This is the Mujahideen’s orientation from Khorasan to the Maghreb of Islam and the orientation of all those who help and support them.

As for the second orientation, it is the orientation of surrendering, compromising, backtracking and bargaining over the fundamentals of ‘Aqeedah, the principles of Islam, the rules of Shari’ah and the sanctities of the Muslims.

It is an orientation which includes a number of parties, among them defeated people, people who contradict themselves, people with distorted creeds, people who prefer safety, those who beg for residency permits and citizenships, those who claim to be expert politicians, and those who daub themselves with secularism, the nation-state, democracy and the other idols on which Western secular ideology is based. This orientation also includes movements which associate themselves with Islam even as they go ahead with secularization and endearing themselves to the West, and with portraying themselves as patriotic movements which believe in “civil government”, which is a polite term for “non-religious government.” These movements also give precedence to nationalistic ties over other ties, and they hold many other dilapidated ideas which they solicit from self-contradictory materialistic Western thought. These movements also portray themselves as being innocent of “terrorism,” which is how the secular Crusader West describes Jihad, and they declare their total readiness to join the world order which the victorious West imposed after the Second World War and which is based on the domination of the weak by the powerful, whether in the Security Council or in the Third World, especially the realms of Islam from East Turkistan to Ceuta and Melilla.

This is why the Muslim Ummah must study in depth this rich experience of non-stop resistance and defense: this Jihad in Allah’s path to make Allah’s Word supreme, a Jihad free of any patriotic, nationalistic or secular leanings.

In this experience – by the grace of Allah – is a practical reply to the misconceptions of the “inability movement,” which permitted the Muslims to fight and kill their Muslim brothers in Afghanistan in the ranks of the Crusader Americans and under their banner; which created a new Qadianism in the Mardin Conference in Turkey; whose leaders – who claim to belong to Jihad, Da’wah, and the Islamic movement – entered Kabul and Baghdad on the backs of the Americans’ tanks and in the shade of their bombers; and which begs the pleasure of the governments in our capitals, and recognizes their leaders as governors of the Muslims' affairs though they are the allies of the secular Crusader West against the Muslims…the “inability movement,” which claims to strive for change by recognizing secular constitutions, working according to them, and participating in rigged elections under their rules; in fact, they have even strived for change under the leadership of the secularist Mohamed ElBaradei, who fell on us out of the sky of American providence so he could direct the Egyptian opposition on behalf of America the same way he used to direct – also on its behalf – the International Atomic Energy Commission.

The story of Mohamed ElBaradei and Mubarak is the same as the story of Zardari and Musharraf: it is a old/new American game. In Pakistan, America and the West backed Musharraf – whom they used to criticize – when he took part with them in spilling the blood of Muslims and destroying their countries in Afghanistan and Pakistan; but after Musharraf was stained with a number of crimes, and after America used him to bomb and burn the Red Mosque in Islamabad, America sensed that Musharraf had been exposed, and that popular anger towards him was on the increase, and so it made an agreement with Benazir: that it would give her an amnesty for her crimes which it would extract from Musharraf under duress, and that it would return her to Pakistan and facilitate an easy win for her in the elections; and we all know the way elections are run in our countries. This is something which America – with its money, bombers and tanks – has mastered in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq.

So America made a deal with Benazir to facilitate her coming to power in exchange for her giving America a free hand to kill Muslims in Afghanistan and Pakistan and her providing it services – in the name of freedom and the people and at the hands of a popularly elected democratic government –which Musharraf never could have provided.

And when Benazir was killed, America made up for the loss by propelling “Mr. 10%” Zardari – a crook wanted internationally for crimes of theft and corruption – into the seat of power. Thus he was transformed from “Mr. 10%” into “Mr. 100%.” And he gave America what it wanted, and conceded to it what the Pakistan Army – despite its treason and despicableness – didn’t agree to concede to it; and all of this in the name of democracy, freedom and the will of the masses. And on the basis of the fair and honorable elections in Pakistan, Zardari became immune to prosecution by the judiciary, whose attempts to convict him and his ministers fell to pieces on the rock of constitutional immunity and the laws which protect the corrupt.

Now they want this same rotten story to be repeated in Egypt, after America exhausted its uses for Mubarak and used him as the cat’s claw in the execution of all its dirty crimes in the region, from the campaigns of torture against the Islamic movements, to the embargo against Iraq and then its bombing and the bombing of Afghanistan, to the blockade of Gaza.

So when Mubarak turned into a symbol of corruption, criminality, thievery and treason, and when America sensed that Mubarak’s bequeathal of power to his son might cause problems and inconveniences, it decided to experiment with a parallel line for achieving its goals, by way of the emissary of American providence, Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei, or what some Egyptians call – with their customary sarcasm – “The Awaited ElBaradei!”

So America could either propel ElBaradei to power by way of Eastern-style elections, as occurred in Pakistan, or it could keep him as a leader of the opposition and a thorn in the side of Jamal Mubarak, so that the two might compete with each other in the provision of services and loyalty to the Caesar of Washington, commander of the contemporary Crusade.

So Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei returned to Egypt after spending the years of his life serving the United Nations Organization, the organization of the domination of oppressed nations by oppressor nations. He returned after spending his life in inspections in Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, Libya and Syria, sniffing around in them for any trace of nuclear activity, although he is the same person who doesn’t dare to utter a word about the mountains of deadly weapons of all types in the possession of America, Britain, France and the rest of the arrogant powers.

The employee devoted to the service of the world order which the victorious West imposed after the Second World War returned to Egypt; ElBaradei, with whom the arrogant world order was pleased, and so it gave him the Nobel Prize, to which he was beaten by senior criminals like Begin, Sadat, Naguib Mahfouz, and Obama. He returned to move about freely while enjoying American protection and care, which protected him from the wrath of Mubarak, who never neglects to make an example of any rival to him, and who didn’t suffice with torturing his own people, but even turned Egypt into an international terminal for torture in the contemporary Crusade.

Yet this torturer Mubarak stood like a tame cat in front of the emissary of American providence, and so Egypt awoke suddenly to find that the ex-employee of the world order had returned to it and was touring it from north to south, promising freedom, democracy and – lest we forget – secularism.
Some might ask, “And why shouldn’t we support ElBaradei if he is going to bring us change?”

This is a question which requires that the one who posed it be woken up and alerted to the realities of the world and its history.

The one who wants change must ask himself, “Where to and how?”
Where does he want to go? To the establishment of an Islamic state which rules by Shari’ah, helps the oppressed, spreads justice and opens the door to Shura [consultation], or to an ugly and misshapen secular monstrosity in which decisions are made by America?

And how will change be achieved? Through peacemaking, reconciling, giving priority to our safety, and demonstrating how good we are at surrendering to the doctrinally secular – but Crusader-leaning – Western world order, or through Jihad, struggle, resistance, and enjoining good and forbidding evil? Through the methodology of inability, begging and benefiting, or through the methodology of the Mujahideen and those who resolutely adhere to their ‘Aqeedah? Theirs’ is the methodology which forced America to announce its pullout from Afghanistan and Iraq, and theirs’ is the methodology which ruined for it the project on which it had collaborated with the stars of the international Islamic movement who rode its tanks towards Kabul and Baghdad; with the “Fuqahaa” of the Marines and the neo-Qadianis of Mardin; and with the Shi’ite religious authorities in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan.

Change in Egypt and other realms of Islam won’t be achieved by joining the brigade of Zardari, Sheikh Sharif, Karzai and ElBaradei. Change won’t be achieved under the banner of the secularists and those who seek help from the arrogant world order.

Change shall only be achieved by struggle, resistance and defense, and by declaring the truth and adhering to ‘Aqeedah and striving to make it a tangible reality through sacrifice and Jihad in Allah’s path with wealth and self, and through commanding of good and forbidding of evil with the hand, tongue and heart.

And the first step on the path to change is awareness of facts, and the clearest and most obvious of facts is the ‘Aqeedah of Tawheed [monotheism], which must be the ruling authority in every system, constitution and law. The second fact is appreciation of the nature of the conflict in which we are engaged, and that it is a conflict between the Muslim Ummah and its foreign enemies – the invaders – and their domestic agents, and that our liberty, dignity and honor and our success in this life and the next will only be achieved through the defeat of these two factions.

This is why this awareness must be spread among us: awareness of the necessity of changing from the falsehood of Shirk [polytheism], ruling by other than Shari’ah and vassalage to the enemies of Islam, to the truth of Tawheed, ruling by Shari’ah and liberation from the enemies of Islam.

There must be awareness of the flimsiness of the position which says that we might be able to achieve our liberty, honor and dignity by rallying around American influence and following its emissaries. All this flimsy call will bring us is a move from one vassalage to another vassalage and from one corruption to another corruption.

And if this awareness spreads in the ranks of the Muslim Ummah, it will be followed by a succession of steps which will lead to the desired change.
This is why I call on every free and honorable person with concern for his religion, his Islam, his honor and his dignity to work with everything in his power to spread this awareness: the awareness that our corrupt condition is unacceptable, because it is a condition of deviation from Shari’ah; vassalage to the powers of arrogance; and intensification of political despotism, financial corruption, social oppression and moral dissolution…the awareness that our desired objective is ruling by Shari’ah; liberation from the international system of the arrogant powers; liberation of the Muslims’ lands; spreading justice; opening the door to Shura; and the Ummah taking its rulers to account…and the awareness that this desired objective can’t possibly be achieved by the methods of begging, backtracking and accepting things as they are, but rather, shall be achieved by Jihad, sacrifice of self and wealth, and commanding of good and forbidding of evil.

I call on every free and honorable person with concern for his religion, his Islam, his honor and his dignity to compare the two approaches for dealing with the contemporary Crusade: the approach of Jihad, taking pride in Allah and confronting the senior criminals with hand and tongue, and the approach of surrendering and begging and waiting for every opportunity to please the Caesar of the Romans in the White House.

The methodology of the people of honor and Jihad has achieved what no observer who doesn’t believe in Allah and the Last Day had imagined. By worldly and materialistic standards, there was no match between what they call the superpowers – led by America and the Crusader West – and the groups of Mujahideen, who are poor in terms of means but rich with their faith.

But worldly and materialistic standards overlooked the fundamental laws which rule Creation and which al-Mawla – subhaanahu – told us about in His Quran: “How many a small party has triumphed over a large party by Allah's command! And Allah is with the steadfast” (2:249); “So fight in the path of Allah – you are held responsible only for yourself – and urge the believers to fight. Allah will restrain the might of those who disbelieve; and Allah is stronger in might and stronger in punishment” (4:84); “And We wished to show favor to those who were oppressed on earth, and to make them leaders and to make them inheritors of our favors; and to grant them power in the land, and to make Pharaoh and Haman and their hosts see from them that which they had feared.” (28:5-6)

The methodology of Jihad and taking pride in Allah was able to inflict great harm and slaughter on the senior criminals. Their military defeats and economic losses came one after another, and they announced that they are leaving Iraq and Afghanistan.

In this conflict , the Mujahideen were – and still are – being confronted from the front by the senior criminals led by America – with most of the world behind it – and being harmed from the back by the preachers of inability, the “Fuqahaa” of the Marines, the ‘Ulama of beggary and the secularized leaderships of movements which affiliate themselves with Islam.

But despite this complex opposition and two-pronged battle, Allah sent down His steadfastness on His slaves the Mujahideen, and helped them with His aid and His support, and shook the ranks of the Crusaders and their agents and struck fear in their hearts.

The Crusader West, after nine years of its campaign against first Afghanistan and then Iraq, has realized that a military resolution isn’t possible, and so it is resorting to ruses, machinations, bribes and buying of loyalties, and the Crusader West has brought over to its side a major part of what used to be called the nationalist movement, and it has also attracted a number of those who used to belong to the global Islamic movement and is using them to discourage the Ummah from performing Jihad, commanding good and forbidding evil, and clinging to Tawheed and the rule of Shari’ah.

Among the most prominent of those whom the West attracted from the nationalists is the Fatah movement which used to claim to be defending the most important nationalist cause, but subsequently sold out its nationalist cause and recognized the state of Israel on most of its people’s land, or on “historical Palestine” as they call it; and recognized the Israeli citizenship of its people who live in the part of Palestine occupied in 1948. This is how the nationalists sold out their peoples and lands: they are like the person who made an idol out of pressed dates, then ate it when he became hungry.

This is why I advise our people in Palestine to distinguish between two methodologies: a secular methodology of desertion which prostrates itself at the feet of the West; cooperates with Israeli security organs; allies itself with the West and its agents in the region; and includes the Palestinian Authority and all Arab states without exception. I don’t exclude any of them because there is no difference between them except in the degree to which they declare their subservience to America and the West. As for actual cooperation, it is in full swing.

All of them have abandoned Palestine – which they call “historical Palestine” – over and over again, and the most recent of their recognitions was their Arab initiative, in which they not only abandoned most of Palestine, they also abandoned the right of return for Palestinians by making it conditional on an understanding with Israel. This abandonment of Palestine wasn’t confined to the Palestinian National Authority and the Arab states, but extended to all the nationalist and leftist movements, which recognize international legitimacy and deem as sacred the resolutions of the United Nations which usurp the realms of the Muslims.

And this secular orientation of desertion is gradually attracting the political leaderships of Palestinian movements which claim to belong to Islam, by getting them to recognize the principle of the nation-state – in other words, recognize the Sykes-Picot accord; by getting them to disown the rule of Shari’ah, by ruling according to the dictates of the whims of the so-called majority, or what they call “democracy”; and by getting them to recognize the treasonous agents of the West and Israel in Palestine, by recognizing the legitimacy of the Authority and the presidency of Mahmoud Abbas, recognizing the necessity of unity with the traitors in the name of “national unity,” recognizing Mahmoud Abbas’ mandate to negotiate in the name of the Palestinians, and recognizing or respecting the United Nations’ resolutions to divide Palestine and hand over most of it to Israel, through their signing of the Makkah accord.

And facing this secular methodology of desertion is another methodology, one which believes in the rule of Shari’ah, the unity of the Muslim Ummah and the brotherhood of Islam, and believes that all realms of Islam are the equivalent of a single country, and doesn’t disassociate itself from the Mujahideen in Chechnya, but rather, disassociates itself from everyone who deviates from the methodology of Islam and abandons his religion, honor and homelands.

And this orientation has been ganged up on by the countries of the West, foremost among them America, and by all the governments and countries which fell in line with them.

But this orientation is our hope.

This orientation has the purer methodology and the more correct doctrine, because it relies on the explicit and definite proofs of the Qur’an and Sunnah [Prophetic Way], and cites the historical and political reality of the Muslim Ummah, and believes neither in the fatwas of the “Fuqahaa” of the Marines nor in the hired ‘Ulama in Riyadh, Cairo and Qatar.

So the Muslim Ummah in Palestine must define its path and know what it wants.
Does it want the establishment of Allah’s Law on His earth and the expulsion of the invaders from all realms of Islam, which – according to the consensus of the Fuqahaa – are the equivalent of a single country?

Or does it want an emaciated and paralyzed secular state which will be manipulated by international conspiracies and regional intrigues?

The first choice, which is the choice of establishing the Islamic state in Palestine and expelling the invaders from it and from all realms of Islam, won’t come to pass through coming to an understanding with the Arab states, which were the ones who sold out Palestine in the first place, and are the ones who use the sheltering of Palestinian movements on their territories as a bargaining chip.
This choice requires another technique and a different methodology, like the one put into practice by the Mujahideen who forced the Crusader invaders to announce their departure from Afghanistan and Iraq.

This is why, O Muslim Ummah, the major criminals in the West tried and are trying to search for those who will help them – or help their agents – among those who are affiliated with the Islamic movements and among the ‘Ulama of the sultan and “Fuqahaa” of salaries and positions.

In Afghanistan, those who call themselves “former Mujahideen” jumped on the backs of the American tanks heading towards Kabul after it had been pounded by 7-ton bombs; but despite that, the international organization of the Muslim Brothers didn’t disassociate itself from them.

In Iraq, there was al-Sistani and the Shiite religious authorities, who issued fatwas against fighting the occupier invading the Muslims’ realms, and there were the leaders of the Brothers who took part in Bremer’s ruling council, and there was al-Hashemi’s surrendering party which acts as a branch of the CIA; but despite that, the international organization of the Muslim Brothers didn’t disassociate itself from them.

On the Arabian Peninsula, there were the ‘Ulama of the sultan who went from the ‘Aqeedah of Tawheed to “Tawheed al-‘Aqaaid” [unification of religions]; the ‘Ulama of the sultan in the Peninsula who issued fatwas for America’s governor over the Muslims permitting the bringing of hundreds of thousands of invasion forces to the Arabian Peninsula; who issued fatwas forbidding mobilization to Jihad in Iraq and calling it “sedition”; and who issued fatwas forbidding demonstrations in support of Gaza because they are “smacking of lips” which distract from remembrance of Allah. Also there in the Arabian Peninsula were those belonging to the Islamic movements who pledged allegiance to Ali Abdullah Saleh as ruler of the Muslims, after America approved him as one of its governors over the Muslims.

In Somalia, there was Sheikh Sharif Ahmed, leader of the courts which used to be Islamic, who sought help in the Crusader West and the occupiers from the East and West so that they might place him in the seat of power, but the lions of Tawheed in Somalia were lying in wait for him, and they besieged his government in a few kilometer-wide area, and mobilized the Muslim people in Somalia for Jihad against the enemies of the Ummah and their treasonous agents, and wherever they went they established Shari’ah, spread justice, and disseminated beneficial knowledge and the right message; and thus they founded a fortress for Islam and Jihad in East Africa, with Allah’s help and guidance and despite the fewness of their numbers and supplies in comparison with their enemies.

In Egypt, there was their “Greatest Shaykh” who permitted the blockade of Gaza and had a long list of errors, from his hosting the Israeli Chief Rabbi in al-Azhar to his removal of the Niqab.

And in the Islamic Maghreb, the secular governments which steal the peoples’ wealth and abandon Palestine seek help in the Shaykhs of the Marines and the “Fuqahaa” of salaries and positions, so they can bless these regimes, give them legitimacy and curse the Mujahideen.

These tragicomic plays shall continue, O our Muslim Ummah, as long as Jihad, Ribaat, and Hijrah [migration for Islam] continue, because this is a continuous tradition and an invariable law. Al-Haqq – tabaaraka wa ta’ala – says: “Thus did we make for every Prophet an enemy from among the sinners; and sufficient is thy Lord as a Guide and a Helper.” (25:31)

He gave a rambling fatwa and spoke deviancy and committed an act of clear infidelity In every land you will hear a caller Calling to Musailamah or to Sajaah
In every land you will witness a strife In which the religion is sold easily for a cheap price Giving fatwas for the gold of al-Mu'iz and fear of his sword
And the desires of the soul and its unrelenting hatred This, O our Muslim Ummah, emphasizes the importance of the awareness which I mentioned earlier. The Muslim Ummah in general and its Mujahid vanguard in particular must be aware of what goes on around it, and mustn’t be deceived by appearances and names, but rather, look at the truthfulness and correctness of the claims. Al-Haqq – tabaaraka wa ta’ala – says: “And when you see them, their figures please you; and when they speak, you listen to their speech. They are as though they were blocks of wood propped up. They think that every cry is against them. They are the enemy, so beware of them. Allah's curse be upon them, how are they being turned away from the truth.” (63:04)

My Muslim Ummah: nine years after the beginning of the Crusade against Afghanistan and then Iraq, here is the Crusade reeling after being weakened by the blows of your devoted sons, the Mujahideen, and after it lost its balance due to the severity of the hemorrhaging of human and financial losses it is suffering, and that’s why it is searching breathlessly for a way out.

This is the path, O our beloved Ummah, so stick to it. Al-Haqq – subhaanahu wa ta’ala – says: “Fight them, that Allah may punish them at your hands, and humiliate them, and help you to victory over them, and sooth the chests of a people who believe. And that He may remove the anger in their hearts. And Allah turns with mercy to whomsoever He pleases. And Allah is All-Knowing, Wise.” (9:14-15)

O our Muslim Ummah: I congratulate you in general and I congratulate in particular the forces of Jihad and Ribaat on the ending of the ninth year of the Crusade, from which the forces of Jihad and Ribaat have emerged victorious and the forces of the Crusader invasion have emerged weakened by their wounds and exhausted by the hemorrhage of human and financial losses.
And in this context, I emphasize to my brothers the Mujahideen everywhere that true victory is in adherence to Allah’s Shari’ah and not being negligent in applying it. That’s why the Mujahideen must be diligent in abiding by the sacredness of Muslim blood, and that’s why their operations must be regulated by the noble Shari’ah, and that’s why they must study every operation from all sides. And the Mujahideen must disown every operation which is falsely attributed to them despite their innocence of it and which is aimed at the Muslims in their markets, mosques and gathering places. Moreover, we disown any operation which a Jihadi group carries out in which it doesn’t show concern for the safety of the Muslims; for we have only left our houses, abandoned our homelands and made our sacrifices in order to seek Allah’s pleasure and aid His Shari’ah and the rules of His religion.

My Muslim Ummah: among the lessons learned during these nine years is that the Mujahideen’s resolve in the face of the Crusade and their forcing it to pack its bags and get ready to depart humbled and humiliated took place at a distance from the governments and organizations. The governments of the Islamic countries have committed treason and participated with the Crusaders in their assault on the Muslims, and the organizations have deserted, and some of them have even participated in the Crusaders’ governments. This demonstrates the strength of the Muslim Ummah and the greatness of the energies latent within it. In fact, many of the Islamic peoples took a stance opposite to that of their governments. While its governments were sending their forces to kill Muslims in Afghanistan, the Muslim Ummah was sending its sons to perform Jihad against the Crusaders there.

One of the clearest examples of that is the stance taken by the Muslim Ummah in Pakistan and Turkey. From these two countries, one group of Mujahideen after another set out for Afghanistan.

It was amazing to see Turkish officers commanding the forces of the NATO Pact in Afghanistan while the heroic Turkish Mujahideen were inflicting harm on the same NATO forces with their attacks, ambushes and martyrdom operations.
The Mujahideen of Turkey have revived the glories of their forefathers who defended the sanctuary of Islam for more than five centuries. That’s why the Muslim Turkish people must confront the behavior of their government, which is participating in the Muslim-killing campaign in Afghanistan.

The same holds true for the government of Pakistan, which participates in the Crusade as a fundamental partner while the Pakistani Mujahideen flood into Afghanistan.

And who can possibly forget the heroic act of the martyr – as we see him – Abu Dujaanah al-Khorasani, who taught the treasonous Jordanian government a lesson it will never forget on the soil of Afghanistan.

My Muslim Ummah: my congratulations to you once again on this blessed harvest throughout the past nine years, and my congratulations to you also on the victory which is imminent with Allah’s permission. “And on that day the believers will rejoice in Allah's victory. He gives victory to whom He pleases; and He is the Mighty, the Merciful.” (30:04-05)

And our final prayer is that all praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and Allah’s prayers and peace be on our Chief Muhammad and his family and companions. And may peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah and His blessings.

Shariah a threat to US, security pros report say

A group of high-ranking Democrat and Republican intelligence, military and national security officials are set to release a report today, "Shariah: The Threat to America", at a press conference on Capitol Hill this afternoon. Included in the group is former CIA Director James Woolsey, former DIA director Lt. Gen. Harry Soyster, former Defense Undersecretary for Intelligence Lt Gen. Jerry Boykin and former Clinton federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy.

Here's a sneek peek from Bill Gertz at the Washington Times:

Frank Gaffney, director of the Center for Security Policy, said the Obama administration's policy is based on an incorrect assumption. The Team B report seeks to expose flaws in anti-terror programs, including the policy of not referring to al Qaeda and similar groups as "Islamist" to avoid offending Muslims, he said.

"What if it turns out that some of the people the Obama administration has been embracing are actually promoting the same totalitarian ideology and seditious agenda as al Qaeda, only they're doing it from White House Iftar dinners?" said Mr. Gaffney, referring to the daily meal eaten by Muslims to break their fast during Ramadan.

The group of experts was modeled after the official CIA Team B, whose 1976 contrary analysis said U.S. intelligence assessments had underestimated Soviet nuclear forces. That Team B report led to the military buildup under the Reagan administration.

John Brennan, deputy White House national security adviser for counterterrorism, told The Washington Times in June that he disagrees that "there is an Islamic dimension to terrorism."

The administration's policy of not using the word Islam and its derivatives to describe today's fundamentalist terrorists is aimed at "not according these individuals any religious legitimacy," he said.

But I suspect this report will make the case that Al-Qaeda might actually have religious legitimacy in light of Islam's call for global domination and jihad waged against all who do not submit.

The report will be available online after 12:30pm today at this link at the Center for Security Policy.

Dear National Republican Senatorial Committee

Nice job. Your little hissy fit is going to cost other candidates money too, as the majority of us Conservative voters decide not to send you any money either.

Republican aides told Fox News Tuesday that the National Republican Senatorial Committee will not be funding O'Donnell's general election campaign, leaving it up to Palin and the Tea Party Express to do the heavy lifting.

Thank you. It's quite obvious this primary season that we don't need you anyway.

Record level of US airstrikes hit Afghan militants (Drone Strikes)

Degrading the Haqqani network...

AP

ISLAMABAD — Drone aircraft unleashed two missile attacks in a lawless tribal region on the Afghan border Tuesday, making September the most intense period of U.S. strikes in Pakistan since they began in 2004, intelligence officials said.

The stepped-up campaign is focused on a small area of farming villages and mountainous, thickly forested terrain controlled by the Haqqani network, a ruthless American foe in Afghanistan, U.S. officials say. There is some evidence the network is being squeezed as a result, one official said.

American officials said the airstrikes were designed to degrade the Haqqanis' operations on the Pakistani side of the border, creating a "hammer-and-anvil" effect as U.S. special operations forces carry out raids against their fighters across the frontier in Afghanistan. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing classified operations.

The missiles have killed more than 50 people in 12 strikes since Sept. 2 in the Pakistani region of North Waziristan, according to an Associated Press tally based on Pakistani intelligence officials' reports. Many struck around Datta Khel, a town of about 40,000 people that sits on a strategically vital road to the Afghan border.

DOJ IG to Investigate Obama Administration's Selective Enforcement of Voting Rights

Wow. Just remember: an investigation is a start, not a finish. There may be more than one explanation for selective enforcement of voting rights laws. For instance, this is the government we're talking about here and when was the last time the government consistently enforced, well, anything?

But on its face, the whole dropping of charges against the New Black Panthers has looked bad. Real bad.

CNA

Orlando, Fla., Sep 14, 2010 / 06:07 am (CNA).- A hacker has attacked the website of the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC), a group assisting the Christian convert Rifqa Bary[...]

In an e-mail to supporters the FFPC said the hacker gained access to its website last Friday and “disabled the entire back-end controls on the site, erased most of the data, disabled the blog and left an obscene message on the events page explaining in broken English who he was and why he was hacking the site.”

“You got hacked due to you s**t thinking abt Great Islam,” the hacker said. “(T)his is due to JHON TAIRY … do good and have good … **** all florida,” the attacker added.

The FFPC reports that its web experts have judged the five-year-old site to be completely unusable and in need of replacement.

Hacker, vKey H@Or, most likely bragging about the hack, especially to CAIR.

Human Rights Watch - Who's Your Sugar Daddy?


George Soros pledges 100 Million to Human Rights Watch.

Anti-Israeli secular-Jewish billionaire George Soros has pledged $100 million to the New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW), a non-governmental group that claims to monitor governmental abuses of power. The grant is among the largest of its kind ever made. It will be paid in ten annual $10-million portions.

HRW's reports have been excoriated by the “NGO Monitor” watchdog organization as focusing disproportionately on Israel for alleged abuses, and for exhibiting “consistent bias, false and contradictory statements, and the use of irrelevant evidence and inappropriate methodologies.”

DOD


WEST POINT, N.Y., Sept. 14, 2010 – They run road races and compete in triathlons. They climb mountains, kayak through rapids and ski on snow and water.

They are America’s wounded warriors -- veterans who continue to inspire by their resilience and will to overcome any obstacle placed before them.

Six Army soldiers and one Marine from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., visited the U.S. Military Academy here Sept. 10 to test their abilities on a challenging set of obstacles.

The indoor obstacle course test is a rite of passage for all West Point cadets as a testament to their physical fortitude. Being able to make it through this intense test of balance, strength and stamina is hard enough, given months of practice and training. But for the wounded warriors, with only hours of preparation, the test was an inspirational example of the Warrior Ethos and human perseverance, said Army Col. Gregory L. Daniels, the chief of the academy’s physical education department.

“These outstanding soldiers are a testament to the amazing power of the human spirit,” Daniels said of the wounded warriors. “They make no excuses for their so-called disabilities, and they drive on with an indomitable grit that is truly remarkable. Every single cadet should take notice and emulate their invincible spirit.”

For that reason, Daniels made sure cadets were present for this event. Hayes Gymnasium roared with the encouraging cheers of cadets as the wounded warriors moved through the timed course.

“I wanted the cadets to cheer them on with all their might and to be inspired by what they observed,” Daniels said. “These soldiers demonstrated the Warrior Ethos in a very unique and powerful way. I wanted as many cadets as possible to see first-hand the type of young person they will eventually have the immense responsibility and awesome privilege to lead.”

Cadets lined up to congratulate and speak with the group after the test. Cadet Brittany O’Connell said she left with a lump in her throat from what she’d witnessed.

“It made me realize that even with things as hectic as they are here, your problems may not be as big as you think they are,” she said. “It was truly amazing.”

When Daniels told the cadets to remember this event the next time they complained about something being too hard, Cadet Tom Snukis took it to heart.

“It was definitely inspiring, because you see cadets struggle through this every day,” said Snukis, who will take the course for score in October. “Then to come out here and see soldiers missing arms and legs, and they destroyed the [course]. ‘Inspiring’ is definitely the word.”

As the sole Marine and only double amputee in the group, Lance Cpl. Joshua Wege said he had even more to prove than his colleagues. He was not expecting such a large audience, he said, but it fueled his performance with an added dose of adrenaline.

“The entire bleachers were filled, and just the sound reverberating off the walls was cool,” Wege said. “I’ve never had crowds cheer me before. I was nervous at the starting line, which I don’t get very often, but with everyone watching and the blood pumping, I wanted to do the best I could.”

Army Spc. Matthew Kinsey said the group of wounded warriors is pretty close-knit, and it was evident in the way, as professional soldiers, they supported each other. They’d been practicing for a few weeks on a smaller course at Walter Reed, Kinsey said, but the West Point course was exhausting.

“At half-speed, the individual obstacles are not bad, but when you go through everything at once, that’s a challenge,” Kinsey said.

Along with Wege and Kinsey, Army Sgt. Robert Brown, Army Pvt. Harrison Ruzicka, Army Spc. Joshua Rector, Army Spc. Nicholas Edinger and Army Sgt. Shane Baldwin also participated.

You are my heroes, every last one of you...God Bless & thanks you so much for your service.

Pakistan's Hypocrisy

An interesting article at Dawn by Moshin Hamid who was raised, and still occasionally lives, in Pakistan. He was also western educated, for full disclosure. What might be obvious to individuals exclusively raised in the West, is refreshing to hear from, at least, a partial insider.

The article starts as a discussion of internal cricket politics and the influx of religion into the cricket system at which point he expands the cricket microcosm to Pakistan as a whole. At which point we get this observation:

Why, then, are we confronted with endemic cheating by our players and the unsavoury sight of our administrators seemingly scrambling to hide what has been going on? Why is our cricket infrastructure in as sorry a state as our political infrastructure?

For me, a large part of the answer has to do with the politicisation of religion.

I have always been a strong believer in Pakistan’s potential. And despite the terribly difficult times our country is going through, I’ve never accepted that our future needs to be bleak. But it is clear to me that Pakistan is being bled by a terrible enemy. That enemy is not America or India or any other external power. No, our enemy is within. Our enemy is our own hypocrisy.

To an extraordinary degree, we Pakistanis have a culture of hypocrisy. We condemn corrupt officials but cheat on our taxes. We have little evidence for conspiracy theories but spout them anyway. Our police take bribes. Our champion sportsmen throw matches. Our state both fights militants and supports militants. Our People’s Parties steal from the people. Our Muslim Leagues wink at those who kill Muslims.

Taliban Party?

Washington Post:

Any indication that they're moving from bullets to ballots, as imperfect as it might be, is a good indicator," said Staffan de Mistura, who previously served as the top U.N. representative in Iraq and took over here in March.

Speaking in an interview at his Kabul office, de Mistura said insurgent leaders in Afghanistan could be trying to bolster their political standing in anticipation of a reconciliation process Afghan President Hamid Karzai is hoping to jump-start this fall.

Bullsh!t. UN representative in Iraq? How long was that guy there? About a week? Afghanistan is not Iraq. This chick as a better grasp on reality...

Martine van Bijlert, co-director of the Afghanistan Analysts Network, said there is little evidence that the Taliban's leadership is interested in playing a formal role in the political system at this point in time.

She said any overtures might speak to the evolution of local politics, rather than a softening of the Taliban's position on Afghanistan's U.S.-backed democratic system.

Copenhagen Bombing Suspect Still a Mystery

New details have been released on the Copenhagen bombing last Friday. Note that a post-splody picture of the suspect hasn't been released because the ka-boom apparently rearranged his face. One observer suggests not enough.

In any event, the wounds are not believed to be the reason the suspect continues to remain silent. He has taken measures to hide his true identity. Hmmm....

Authorities have, however, distributed a picture of his artificial leg which had the serial number removed. Reportedly, the model is sold in Western Europe.


Ominously, when the mystery bomber was apprehended, he had a map on which the offices of Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten were circled. Jyllands-Posten is presumably a target since it ran the Mohammad cartoons.

In other details, one source suggested the suspect was from North Africa or the Balkans and he was carrying a bus ticket for Belgium which would seem to indicate he wasn't on a suicide mission. Also, he reportedly speaks three languages but not Arabic. One has to wonder how the police know that.

Anyway, it's curious that the suspect has yet to be identified. Just how many one-legged, vegetarian, non-Arabic-speaking terrorists are there?

High-ranking Iranian diplomat in Helsinki quits to protest current government.
Hossein Alizadeh, the No.2 official at the Iranian Embassy in Helsinki, has resigned from his diplomatic post as a protest against the policy of the Iranian government.
“I am no longer a diplomat who represents the cruel Iranian administration”, Hossein Alizadeh told the Associated Press. He informed the Embassy of his resignation on Wednesday. He said that he had been considering such a move for a month.

Alizadeh is currently in Helsinki. He is now examining his options, and is expected to apply for asylum.
On Saturday Hossein Alizadeh told Helsingin Sanomat that he has secretly been a member of the Iranian opposition since the Presidential elections in June 2009. The opposition feels that President Mahmud Ahmadinejad was re-elected with the help of election fraud

The Investigative Project has published new information about Faiz Khan and his statements claiming that Muslims weren't behind the 9/11 attacks remembered this past weekend:

In his interview with CNN's Soledad O'Brien on Wednesday, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf defended his plans to build a mosque and Islamic center near Ground Zero, saying "You cannot heal a trauma by walking away from it. We have to sit down. We have to talk about it. We have to dialogue about it and find a way to move through it and beyond it."

But a trove of videos and writings available on the Internet shows that a longtime partner of Rauf believes the 9/11 terror attacks were "an inside job" by U.S. government and corporate interests, the Investigative Project on Terrorism found.

Faiz Khan, a physician who claims to have been a first responder after the September 11 attacks, is a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth and is on the advisory board of the Muslims for 9/11 Truth. In an essay on the Alliance's website, he argued that "the prime factor for the success of the criminal mission known as 9/11 did not come from the quarter known as 'militant Islam' although the phenomenon known as 'militant Islamic networks' may have played a partial role, or even a less than partial role - perhaps the role of patsy and scapegoat."

In speeches, Khan says people in the Third World, where the "sleaze of governance" is more of a given, few people question whether 9/11 was an inside job.

Yes, because it's the Third World that we want to be taking our cues from. Read it all.

Copenhagen Bomber

(Copenhagen, Denmark) Last Friday, an explosion in the bathroom of Hotel Jørgensen in central Copenhagen resulted in the arrest of one man injured by the blast (pic) and the determination that it was a failed terrorist attack.

Police arrested the man, reportedly carrying identification from two foreign countries, in nearby H.C. Ørsted Park with a bag attached to his waist.

The area was quickly cordoned off, and despite injuries to his face and arm the man was left immobilised on the ground for about five hours until a bomb squad robot could remove the bag and detonate it.

The detonation could be heard throughout the immediate area, but a police spokesman declined to comment on the bag’s possible contents, saying only that it was ‘no longer a concern’.

On Saturday, with evidence that the botched bombing was a failed terror attack, security was increased nationwide with particular attention directed to the Copenhagen Airport. At the hospital, the suspect refused to talk to the police.

Late Sunday, police released photos of the bombing suspect and appealed to the public for any information regarding the incident or the douchebag suspect.



The suspect is seen with a goatee and dark hair.
Officials also released the three false names the man had used: Raoul Foltz, David Francois de Vicq de Cumptich and Hans Velle.

Hotels in the Copenhagen area have been asked to check their records for guests using those names.

The suspect is about 6-feet tall and is known to speak French, German and English.

Christians Stabbed Beaten on Way to Church

Yahoo:

BEKASI, Indonesia – Indonesia's president ordered police to arrest the assailants who stabbed a Christian worshipper in the stomach and beat a minister in the head with a wooden plank as they headed to prayers.

In the last few months, they have thrown shoes and water bottles at church members, interrupted sermons with chants of "Infidels!" and "Leave Now!" and dumped piles of feces on the land.

"We've questioned nine witnesses and have already identified the perpetrators," said local detective, Capt. Ade Arie. "But it's too early to comment or speculate on a motive."

Too f*cking early to speculate on a motive?
Local Police Chief Imam Sugianto said Asia Sihombing, a worshipper, was on his way to the field when assailants jumped off a motorcycle and stabbed him in the stomach.

The Rev. Luspida Simanjuntak was smashed in the head as she tried to come to his aid.

"I was trying to help get him onto a motorcycle so we could get him to a hospital," she told reporters in the industrial city of Bekasi, 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of Jakarta.

Leading the charge against the Batak Christians has been the Islamic Defenders Front, which is pushing for the implementation of Islamic-based laws in Bekasi and other parts of the nation.

They are known for smashing bars, attacking transvestites and going after those considered blasphemous with bamboo clubs and stones. Perpetrators are rarely punished or even questioned by police.

The Islamic Defenders Front pressured local authorities early this year to shutter the Batak church, located in a densely populated Muslim area, saying the permit was granted without the required approval of residents.

Well how about we start with islamic Defenders Front, thrown shoes, chants of "Infidels!"...

Yep can't speculate on a motive.....

Today marks the ninth year since that fateful day in 2001. This Jawa will remember those who died that day...... and those who answered the call that morning.

NY Post

gary_box--911.jpg
Jud Box has spent eight years coping with the death of his firefighter son at the World Trade Center -- but that didn't prepare him for what he saw posted to a new online archive of photos and videos about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Scrolling through the archive, Box came face to face with his son, Gary Box, a firefighter with Brooklyn's Squad 1, who was captured by a digital camera lugging his gear through a traffic-clogged Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel on his way to Ground Zero.

It's the last known photo of Gary Box, then 35, who died an hour later in the toppling towers. His remains were never recovered.

Fireman Box answered the call that morning not knowing what he faced....but he went.... just like today others still answer that call....be it in Iraq or Afganistan...or the Predator drivers over the tribal regions in Pakistan.....or the unknown thousands of American's who still answer that call..

Iran Launches 2,000 Blogger "Cyber War"

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) of Iran has launched a program to mobilize 2,000 Basij members as bloggers to conduct a "soft war" of social network intervention.

According to exiled Iranian blogger Nikahang Kowsar,

"I think members of the Revolutionary Guard are going to intervene in different social networks in cyberspace, as the government has found itself vulnerable in this field."

Kowsar said the government believed a "soft war" is necessary because the Internet is currently the opposition Green Movement's most powerful tool.

He added that one of the aims of the IRGC's new "cyberprogram" was to divide the opposition.

Kowsar said a psychological war on the Internet "is a key part of this plan, as most Iranian bloggers inside the country have nicknames for their blogs and it makes it difficult for the authorities to arrest them."

Frankly, it's not exactly clear what the cyber war against "enemies" on social networks will achieve. I suspect that the Iranian authorities may not have a clear understanding of how social networks function.

(Toronto, Ontario) Researchers at York University studied Facebook users and determined that the more one uses the social networking site, the more narcissistic one is.

Using Facebook is the online equivalent of staring at yourself in the mirror, according to a study.

Those who spent more time updating their profile on the social networking site were more likely to be narcissists, said researchers.

Did the Founding Father's Respect Islam?

Not so much. Unless by "respect" you mean "fear" it. As in the way a Sicilian "respects" the local Don.

I've seen many of the quotes before and knew the Founding Father's weren't fans of Islam or Muhammad, but I was under the impression that the first Islamic holiday celebrated at the White House was held by Thomas Jefferson. It wasn't. Which just goes to show that telling a lie over and over again is often enough for people to believe it.

Here's what I learned from this post:

During the Barbary Wars, in 1805, the bey (i.e., monarch) of Tunis threatened war with the United States after the U.S. had been successful in capturing some Tunisian pirate ships. The bey sent an envoy to the United States to negotiate for the return of the ships. This envoy stayed in Washington for six months, during which the month of Ramadan passed.

One of Thomas Jefferson’s many invitations extended to this envoy to meet with him at the White House was during the month of Ramadan. To accommodate the envoy’s religious obligation, Jefferson changed the time of dinner from the usual “half after three” to “precisely at sunset.”

Jefferson was being polite — not celebrating the first White House iftaar, as Akbar Ahmed suggests.

So, the next time someone makes this claim, kindly inform them of the facts. The whole thing is worth a read.

Laura Rubenfeld uses this Wiki to back up her claim about Jefferson's meeting with the Barbary envoy. I thought this was the funniest part:

Mellimelli’s request for “concubines” as a part of his accommodations was left to Secretary of State James Madison.
Apparently the predilections of Middle East ambassadors hasn't change in 200 years! I wonder if securing concubines is one of Hillary's duties or if she gets Bill to do it for her?

Report: Homegrown Terror Threat Growing

Today's must read report states the obvious: there are terrorists in America and there are Americans abroad affiliated with terrorist organizations. Why is it important? Because a lot of people still aren't clued in about the obvious.

This is from the executive summary:

A key shift in the past couple of years is the increasingly prominent role in planning and operations that U.S. citizens and residents have played in the leadership of al-Qaeda and aligned groups, and the higher numbers of Americans attaching themselves to these groups. Another development is the increasing diversification of the types of U.S.-based jihadist militants, and the groups with which those militants have affiliated. Indeed, these jihadists do not fit any particular ethnic, economic, educational, or social profile...
And while I never fail to disagree with Peter Bergen and Bruce Hoffman on one or more policy responses to the threat, just the fact that one of the most respected reporters on terrorism and perhaps the most respected academic on the subject have acknowledged the problem will turn some heads -- and that is a good thing.

Underwear Bomber May Cop a Plea

The only thing separating this guy from a mass-murder rap sheet of hundreds is pure blind dumb luck. He should be facing the death penalty for that. If the plea isn't for natural life, then there is no justice:

His legal team indicated in a court document it has communicated with federal attorneys on "multiple occasions, by phone and in person, to explore options for resolution of this case."

Today was the last day for parties in the case to file motions.

The sides would probably negotiate an agreement to settle the case, former Chicago-based terrorism prosecutor Lloyd Meyer said.

Tragedy: Koran Burning Church Has its Webpage Shut Down

dove_world_outreach_center_down.jpg
Dove World Outreach Center's Webpage as it looks today

Sooooo sad. Data Center Knowledge:

Rackspace Hosting is in the news today after the company invoked its terms of service in terminating web services for the Dove World Outreach Center, the controversial Florida church that has scheduled a Koran-burning event for this Saturday.
Jones, for his part, says this is a violation of his First Amendment rights. The company disagrees saying this is a simple matter of Jones violating the terms of the contract he agreed to when he rented the webspace.

And so it is. When we ask companies to remove pro-terrorism websites we are not censoring the terrorists. We are simply asking companies to remove them based on their own terms of service. The same way we ask YouTube to ask videos promoting violent Islam.

If YouTube would simply police pro-terrorist propaganda with the same vigor that they treated copyright violations, then it would be much harder for terrorists to spread their propaganda to mass audiences. Similarly, if webhosts would simply police pro-terrorist propaganda with the same vigor they policed child pornography I'm convinced the home grown terror phenomenon in the West would be substantially lowered.

And I know all about intelligence and law enforcement concerns with removing these sites as they do tell us important information about the users behind them. But what some fail to realize is that most eHadis aren't really connected to the mujahideen or become terrorists themselves. Shutting down users and websites helps weed out the ones who are really committed to the cause from those that aren't. And that is valuable information.

Thanks to Michael.

Hmmm: DIA Blocking Book on "Able Danger"

I'm scratching my head looking for motivation here. Is this politically motivated -- ie, they don't want to disclose the fact that the 9/11 Report forgot to mention that Mohammad Atta was on our radar screen before the attack and that would be embarrassing for many in government? Or is this motivated by nationally security concerns -- ie, same as above only they don't want the bad guys learning means and methods?

Because I see the former concern as petty and really serving no one's political interest 9 years after 9/11 has gone down the memory hole, and the latter concern as odd given that this is all pretty much public information now anyway.

So, what gives?

Or maybe there is a third option: inertia. This was secret in the past so let's treat it like it's a secret now.

FoxNews.com exclusive:

Specifically, the DIA wanted references to a meeting between Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, the book's author, and the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, Philip Zelikow, removed. In that meeting, which took place in Afghanistan, Shaffer alleges the commission was told about "Able Danger" and the identification of Atta before the attacks. No mention of this was made in the final 9/11 report.

In a highly unusual move, the DIA is now negotiating with the publisher, St. Martin's Press, to buy all 10,000 copies of the first printing of the book to keep it off shelves -- even after the U.S. Army had cleared the book for release.

You can read the rest as well as find a link to the documents in PDF form here.

Thanks to Pierre Legrand who has a ton of links to Able Danger background posts.

Also, I have in my hands a book revealing super-double-probation-top-secret stuff that has yet to go to the publisher. Hey DIA, call me.

PS: Is it just me or is Catherine Herridge doing some especially awesome work lately?

Flippintheraya's Open Letter To Obi One

I sum the letter up to say Wake the feck up and do something about JihadTube

First, this eHadi JihadTuber "911 was a blessed raid" thelevants needs to go like yesterday. Do it for the victims of 911!!

911 Blessed Raid pane 2.1.png

September 9, 2010 Barack Obama President United States of America White House

An Open Letter

Dear Sir,

We watched with interest as you implored people to not burn Koran’s. We respect that. Why insult an entire religion at such a sensitive time, and in such a provocative fashion.

You are correct to say that images of a Koran burning would be used by groups such as al-Qaeda to further their recruitment. We expect the images will be showing up in slick videos within 24 hours of the event, should it happen. The extremists have their own production companies! They are very good at this propaganda campaign.

Here is the problem sir, there are already thousands of video’s on YouTube promoting violent jihad. The easiest way to find them is to just follow the Black Banners. We have seen hundreds of them. In less than 3 years, Operation YouTube SmackDown has identified and flagged over 52,000 of them!

We at Flippin aim our protest at the exact people who are promoting violence. Our goal is to stop the ongoing promotion of violence and hate on YouTube done under the Black Banners of Islam.

We can not for the life of us, understand why, when you had already taken time to address the issue of the possible images use by the likes of al-Qaeda, why would you not mention the very means by which the images would get global distribution? You spoke only to a possible tiny incremental increase of incendiary video images. Why not speak to the entire problem?

Please remember 911 victims by Flipping a raya.

Respectfully,
The Flippin crew.

Cross Worshipper Burned in One Sided Sectarian Clash

Jihad Watch:

When this story was first reported, the media described it the way it always describes Coptic persecution at the hands of Muslims -- as a "sectarian-clash." As this more revealing report makes clear, however, it was anything but a "sectarian-clash" (which suggests Christians and Muslims, in more or less equal numbers, fighting and rioting). Instead, a Muslim set a Christian on fire, and then other Muslims attacked his father, stabbing him to death -- this in a village where Christians make up maybe 3-4% of the total population. Keep this in mind the next time you hear about "sectarian clashes" occurring where Muslims predominate and non-Muslims live as minorities.
But but but...... using Copts as kindling is just a cultural thing. The Koran clearly states that building a fire using the People of the Book is like totally wrong or something.

Ansar al-Mujahidin: Everything is Fine Situation Normal

Statement from Arabic Ansar al-Mujahideen forum to clarify the news of the arrest of brother Abu Hafes al-Maghrebi

"They (the disbelievers, the Jews and the Christians) want to extinguish Allah's Light (with which Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم has been sent - Islamic Monotheism) with their mouths, but Allah will not allow except that His Light should be perfected even though the Kafirun (disbelievers) hate (it). It is He Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam), to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it)." {al Tawbah, 32-33}

Praise be to Allah, Lord of all worlds, Confounder of the infidels, and prayers and peace be upon the Master of Messengers, the Imam of the patient, his family and companions. And thereafter:

The Crusader media sources have been reporting with great joy the news of the arrest of our esteemed brother Abu Hafes al-Maghrebi, may Allah release him from captivity - the administrator of the Arabic Ansar al-Mujahideen forum. According to the enemy, by the arrest of our brother, may Allah make him steadfast, they have been able to mute the voice of one of the platforms of Truth. However, when they realized that this is not the case, they attacked the network's server.

Heh, Crusader Media.
We would like to let the Ansar know the cause that led to the arrest of our brother Abu Hafes, may Allah release him from captivity. Some brothers were arrested while on their way to battle and among them were some who knew the brother by name and appearance. They had been arrested months before our brother was arrested, may Allah release him from captivity.
What! You mean the akhi narced on al-Maghrebi? I'll be darned.
As for our message to Crusader Spain and those who help it among the intelligence dogs in Morocco and Jordan and the like, know that you, by way of these actions of yours, have opened a door on yourselves that will not be shut except with the return of al-Andalus to the land of Islam once again and the implementation of Allah's rule on the apostates and their helpers. Should our hands fail to reach you and cut off your rotten heads, then our supplication will not miss you, for Allah is our Master and He has promised to answer the prayers of those who call upon Him.
Don't we sound just like real Jihadis? It doesn't sound too desperate does it?

WTF? Koran Burning Moron Calls it Off if GZ Mosque Moves

Wow, the offer is actually a pretty good move on Jones' part. It's a good bluff. So good I'd hate to have to face this guy across a poker table.

And if those who are offended by this or that have veto power over the actions of private individuals or groups, then why not just swap the offensive actions out? We could start a Craig's list page: you promise not to do that and I'll promise not to do this.

Personally, I'd force Howie to stop posting all the hot lesbian pics which I know offend some of you in exchange for the Atlantic firing Andrew Sullivan and replacing him with someone less inclined to the vapors.

ROP: Al Qaeda's Chechen Affiliate Kills Dozens

Spencer's AP source says 17 killed, but the press outlet for al Qaeda's Caucuses affiliate claims 22 dead, with the promise that the "figures will surely increase". From the horse's mouth:

A powerful explosion occurred at the entrance to the central market of the town of Buro (Vladikavkaz) in Ghalghaycho province of the Caucasus Emirate.

Occupation sources reported at least 22 people were killed and 133 wounded.

The figures will surely increase.

According to preliminary reports, it was a car bomb explosion, with a car parked outside the market. Later, Russians said it had been a martyr operation

The power of the bomb was up to 40 kg. TNT. The explosion rocked Zanayeva street at around 11:30 am local time on Thursday. The blast was so powerful that glasses shattered in nearby buildings.

Quite a lot of vehicles was burnt or damaged at the opposite street side of the market. Russians claim that they found and disabled a second bomb in the market.

Ah, yes, the brave mujahideen killing the "occupation forces" that ... run the local market.

Islamic Jihad Union commander reported killed in Predator strike

We all suspected they weren't hunting foot soldiers in all those predator strikes yesterday....and were hunting HVT's....well Bill Roggio has some good news.

Bill Roggio

A senior commander in the al Qaeda-linked Islamic Islamic Jihad Union is thought to have been killed in one of four Predator airstrikes carried out by the US in Pakistan's Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan.

The "Uzbek commander" who is known as Qureshi is thought to have been killed in the second of two airstrikes that took place in the Datta Khel area in North Waziristan, according to a report in Adnkronos International. The US also launched two attacks on targets on the outskirts of Mirmashah, the main town in the tribal agency.

Qureshi "used to receive foreigners especially the Germans in North Waziristan and then train them and resend them to their country of origins," according to AKI.

US intelligence officials contacted by The Long War Journal said they were aware or reports of Qureshi's death and were seeking to verify. The officials would not comment on the target of the strikes. AKI reported that members of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a Pakistani terror group that is closely allied with al Qaeda and receives support from elements of Pakistan's military and intelligence service, were targeted along with the Islamic Jihad Union.

And the hunt goes on.....

Update by Rusty: I added the image above from a video made by the Islamic Jihad Union showing them training kids for jihad.

Update by Matt Damon: Kill confirmed AKI by Syed Saleem Shahzad(this man is plugged in with the jihadi set)

Terror Bust in South Florida? Palestinian Charged in Weapons Bust

I'll put the entire press release from the Southern Florida office of the DOJ below the fold, but the entire thing reads as if something much more was going on here then a simple gun running scheme. We're not talking just a few weapons either. In addition to wanting to buy hundreds of fully automatic weapons, he was also inquiring into purchasing C-4 and .... IEDs.

And here's a couple of key bits from the affidavit against Abdalaziz Aziz Hamayel, the Palestinian national (is that a nationality?) who was busted:

HAMAYEL indicated that a "family friend"... from the same village in the West Bank would provide the necessary funds for the weapons and explosives...

HAMAYEL responded that the weapons were for his people and would be sent outside the United States...

HAMAYEL also mentioned that his New York contact was from "his group" and had conducted similar transactions in the past....

HAMAYEL stated the detonation device did not need to be a phone only something which would allow his people enough time to get out of the area before the bomb exploded.

HAMAYEL was pleased with the weapons and told UC-1 he did not want the cell phone detonator because it would not work "over there".

[emphasis mine]

The other guy in the case is a Cuban named Yanny Aguila Urbay, but who went by the nickname of "Negro". His role in the affair seems only to be hooking Hamayel up with the weapons dealer. Urbay wanted a "finders fee" cut from the transaction.

I'm not sure why this isn't be reported as such, but all signs point to terrorism. But with the current peace talks going on we wouldn't want to make Palestinians look bad, now would we?

Thanks to psst for the tip.

freedom stops when you hurt others.. burning the Quran is a bad idea; and -as a Muslim- i find it very insulting..

your wife can have sex with others.. why not its her freedom..

someone can spit on your family album, pee on it, and whatever.. expressing his/her freedom..

terrorists can bomb the innocents.. why not its their way to express their freedom..

anyone with the right mind, see this is a bad idea.

Do we like it when the American Flag is burned? Hell no! Do we like it when the Bible is burned? Hell no! Do we like it when the Quran is burned? Hell no! Do we like it when the KKK demonstrates? Hell no! Do we like it when the Phelps groups demonstrates at funerals? Hell no! I could go on and on. The dude above was upset about the burning of the Quran...............only and then went on to attack the YouTubers family.

We are a country of peoples of various religious backgrounds but no religion dictates to us. That is what is so great about America....

Good News: 4 al Qaeda Suspects Escape from US Prison in Iraq

Who says The Army Times is simply full of fluff pieces about 5k fun runs, dental clinics, and profiles in sillines. They also have some good --- nay, great -- news:

Four prisoners with links to al-Qaida being guarded by American troops escaped from a maximum-security prison in Baghdad and are still at large, U.S. and Iraqi officials said Thursday....

U.S. troops found two detainees attempting to escape from the compound on Wednesday evening, the military said in a statement. When they conducted a sweep of the whole facility, they discovered that four other detainees were missing....

He said the men were linked to al-Qaida and facing the death penalty.

Awesome. Now let's get on with closing Gitmo and moving all those guys to US soil!

Us vs. Them: When Our Guys Kill Civilians, We Put Them in Jail

Some on the left and many in the violent Islamist movement make claims that the Taliban and US soldiers are basically the same. We kill civilians, they kill civilians.

It is true that we sometimes kill civilians by mistake. For this we are always regretful.

And on a very rare occasion some of our soldiers may kill civilians on purpose.

Whether or not the accused here are guilty of the crime or not is beyond the point. We have seen too many cases already where soldiers have been wrongfully accused of war crimes to make a judgment one way or another. As a patriot, I give the soldiers the benefit of the doubt with the caveat that if they are guilty of the alleged crimes then they deserve the harshest punishment.

But based on this one case you can draw an important distinction between NATO troops and the Taliban. And it is not the point that the radical Left or the Islamists will make from it.

This case perfectly illustrates how we treat criminals in our society vs. how they treat criminals. All armies, like societies in general, have criminals in them.

The difference between us and them is that we put war criminals in jail. They celebrate war criminals.

Jihadi videos showing the killing of civilians are produced by the jihadis themselves. Taliban videos showing the beheading of civilians are produced by the Taliban themselves. These videos are not used in a sharia court to convict the murderers. These videos are shown as badges of honor and used to recruit more into the ranks of the murderers.

This is just one of many differences between us and them. I hope to God that this turns out to be much ado about nothing. But if this were an Islamist forum and the victims had been Westerners killed by a terorist, you can be sure that there would be cries of Allahu-akbar and talk of the brave mujahideen who had just killed women and children.

On to the sad story, if it is true:

Twelve American soldiers face charges over a secret "kill team" that allegedly blew up and shot Afghan civilians at random and collected their fingers as trophies.

Five of the soldiers are charged with murdering three Afghan men who were allegedly killed for sport in separate attacks this year. Seven others are accused of covering up the killings and assaulting a recruit who exposed the murders when he reported other abuses, including members of the unit smoking hashish stolen from civilians.

We're ashamed of our killers. They are proud of them.

Castro: Communism Doesn't Work

Fidel Castro.jpgFormer Cuban dictator Fidel Castro was interviewed by Jeff Goldberg of Atlantic magazine and said that communism doesn't work.

That Cuba's economy is flailing is no state secret. Fidel's brother, Cuban President Raul Castro, has repeatedly said that the communist economic model is badly frayed and in need of reform.

He has told Cubans to work harder and expect less from the state, which controls more than 90 percent of the economy. But the Castros have also insisted they have no desire to embrace capitalism.

Still, Fidel's candor caught many by surprise.

Former Brit Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher had it right when she said socialism/communism will work until you run out of other people's money. For decades, Castro was propped up by massive infusions of foreign aid from the USSR but that's gone now as Cuba trends toward abject national poverty.

Castro also urged Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to quit denying the Holocaust and slandering the Jews. (more....)

In other awesome news via Creeping Sharia: Kurt Westergaard was praised for his bravery by German Chancellor Angela Merkel

BERLIN—German Chancellor Angela Merkel praised the bravery of a Danish cartoonist who caricatured the Prophet Muhammad at an award ceremony honoring his achievements for freedom of speech.

In her speech praising illustrator Kurt Westergaard, “who has had to fear for his life since the publication of the cartoons in 2005,” Merkel emphasized Wednesday that media freedom is an important element of rights in Europe.

“It does not matter if we think his cartoons are tasteful or not, if we think they are necessary and helping or not,” Merkel said at the ceremony in the city of Potsdam. The question, she said, was, “Is he allowed to do this? Yes, he is.”

Video: 9/11 Firefighter Hits Back At GZ Imam

NYPost: "

The imam behind the Ground Zero mosque last night warned that caving in to pressure and moving the project would trigger a massive backlash in the Muslim world, jeopardizing national security.

"If we move from that location, the story will be that the radicals have taken over the discourse," Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf said on CNN's Larry King Live.

"The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack. The danger from the radicals in the Muslim world to our national security, to the national security of our troops . . . will be increasingly compromised if the radicals are strengthened."

Tim Brown had this to say this morning:

Imam Rauf's Islam under attack is BS. America was under attack 9 feckin years ago this Saturday by Islamic radical bastages. It's time the Imam and his ilk show some sensitivity to those who lost loved ones on 9/11. Yes, he has the right to build it but if he truly wants to bring together peoples why did he pick that site? Certainly he knew there would be backlash....

UPDATE by Rusty: Hmmm, this is actually more complicated in my mind then it seems. Rauf here might be right. The narrative in some segments in the Islamic world is already that Americans are at war with Islam and this is being used as an example of alleged American "intolerance".

The problem, of course, is that this is a mess of Rauf's own doing. He's backed himself into a corner. If he builds, he pisses us off. If he doesn't build, he pisses off the conspiracy minded Islamists. Lose - lose.

The difference? We won't kill any one if he builds. But you never know who might get killed when the religion-of-the-perpetually-outraged finds yet another reason to be outraged.

Sheriffs Want List of Prescriptions for Painkillers

I do get there is a problem, but making people subject to investigation without probable cause sucks. For sure officers would have a hard time resisting the temptation to pay extra attention to someone just because they are "on the list".

News Observer: Sheriffs in North Carolina want access to state computer records identifying anyone with prescriptions for powerful painkillers and other controlled substances.

The state sheriff's association pushed the idea Tuesday, saying the move would help them make drug arrests and curb a growing problem of prescription drug abuse. But patient advocates say opening up people's medicine cabinets to law enforcement would deal a devastating blow to privacy rights.

With my exploded knee I am currently taking, you know, bad medicine.

High Confidence' of Backlash for Koran Burning

The Blotter:

The FBI is concerned that Islamic extremists might attack and retaliate at this Saturday's Koran burning planned by radical Florida pastor Terry Jones, ABC News has learned.

"While the FBI has no information to indicate a specific attack has been planned against the United States or U.S. assets in response to the 'International Burn a Koran Day' event, the FBI assesses with high confidence that, as with past incidents perceived as acts of desecration against Islam, extremist actors will continue to threaten or attempt to harm the leaders, organizers, or attendees the event," an FBI intelligence bulletin notes.

Well you don't say?

I ran across this this morning from a group of which Revolution Muslim is a part.

I can not give further information but it is possible that we might have a sniper on site to take Mr Jones out on 9/11 should he go ahead with the crime.

To take him out would be an honor, it is not an act of terrorism it is protecting the status and sanctity of Al Quran, the honor of our beloved Nabi Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wa’salaam, and is Jihad fi Sabilillah [For Allah and His Rasul not the anger of people] It is like physically protecting the Kaaba in Makka, Al Aqsa in Al Quds, it is like placing yourself as a shield for our Nabi.

We spent nearly the entire night crying making dua hoping this will not be the case, if only Mr Jones can read the Quran he would not harm one page.
It is Allah’s choice to guide him or not after all he has a Quran with him.

Awww see how sensitive they are...spent all night crying...

Pussies.

Five Mil for Abu Yahya al-Libi

alliby099.jpgVOA:

Abu Yahya al-Libi is a fugitive who is wanted in connection with threats against the United States and U.S. citizens or property worldwide.


A Libyan citizen believed to be hiding in Afghanistan or Pakistan, al-Libi is 46 years old, stands one and a third meters tall, weighs approximately 88 and a half kilograms, and has black hair and dark eyes. He also is known to wear a black beard and use the aliases Yunis, Hasan Qa'id, Mohammad Hassan Abu Baker and Abu Yahya Yunis al Sahrawi.

An Islamic scholar, al-Libi escaped in July 2005 from the Bagram Air Force Base in Afghanistan where he was being detained. Since then he has appeared in a number of propaganda videos using his religious training to influence people and legitimize the actions of the al Qaida terror network. He is a key motivator in the global jihadi network and his messages convey a clear threat.

Barry Rubin: Possible burning of one Koran, definite burning of one million news stories

A taste:

Nowadays, the United States can easily win any tolerance competition in the world. On the other hand, a lot of Americans are very much in the race with the rest of the world about who can be the most anti-American.

What is never pointed out is that the threatened action's equivalent—which, remember, hasn’t even happened yet and has no institutional or widespread support—happens daily in dozens of locations throughout the Middle East and the Muslim-majority world, not at the hands of marginal nut-jobs with no following but from powerful political and religious figures or media outlets with huge bases of support.

Every day, there are massive lies told intended to incite people to hate the West and America, Christians and Jews. Every day, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, and Jews are being persecuted and in some cases driven out of Muslim majority countries with no one in the Western power establishment even noticing, must less protesting.

Unfortunately, it is sadly true that the Muslim majority areas of the world are to bigoted racists what Saudi Arabia is to oil; Newcastle is to coal; Florida is to orange; and Hollywood is to movies.

Read it all.

Hypocrisy Alert: Muslim group ISNA condemning Florida Koran burning takes money from Saudi government who incinerates Bibles as a matter of policy

Yesterday a group of liberal religious leaders gathered in Washington DC for a press conference organized by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) to condemn the planned burning of a Koran on the 9/11 anniversary Saturday by a Florida church.

Speaking for ISNA was its president Ingrid Mattson, who angrily condemned the church in question, saying that this act threatens Muslims like never before:

"Having spoken to many families across the country over the last few weeks, I have heard many Muslim Americans say they have never felt this anxious or this insecure in America since directly after September 11," Ingrid Mattson, head of the Islamic Society of North America, told a press conference.

Apart from the fact that America Muslims are a bunch of pussies if they are scared by a bunch of cranks burning a book, Mattson and ISNA are the last to be lecturing us on this score.

In fact, ISNA has not only taken millions of dollars from the Islamic Development Bank, funded and controlled by the Saudi regime, but it has established a partnership with the Saudi regime's IBD for educational scholarships.

As a matter of policy, the Saudi regime shreds Bibles and other non-Islamic religious materials and items confiscated from those entering the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Institute has confirmed this policy:

"As a matter of official policy, the government either incinerates or dumps Bibles, crosses and other Christian paraphernalia," the Saudi Institute said in an article posted on its website.

"Although considered as holy in Islam and mentioned in the Koran dozens of times, the Bible is banned in Saudi Arabia, and is confiscated and destroyed by government officials," it said.

So when Ingrid Mattson starts lecturing us about book burnings, she should remove the log from her eye before trying to remove the mote in ours. Oh, wait, that's a Christian virtue, not a Muslim one. Never mind.

Claim: Anwar al Awlaki Issues Death Fatwa for Koran Burning [Update: Fatwa Issued by Another Cleric, Not Awlaki]

A new message claims that Anwar al-Awlaki has issued a death fatwa against Terry Jones, the Florida man organizing a public Quran burning on 9/11. The fatwa claims that it is mandatory for Muslims to assassinate Jones.

Here is part of the text:

Based on the Shariah it becomes Fard [a religious duty] upon every Muslim to assassinate Terry Jones should you come in close proximity to him as well as for those who support him in this cause of sin against Islam.

The offence is to our our Rubb [God], our Deen [way of life], and our Nabi [prophet].

May death overtake him.

The message claims to have been made by Anwar al-Awlaki, the American born spiritual leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

We cannot verify the authenticity of the message at this time as it did not come through the usual Islamist forums. However, the message is being passed around the internet and probably reflects the sentiments of many violent radicals. Others may also believe in its veracity and use it as justification for action.

Moreover, the fatwa applies not only to Jones but "those that support him".

Presumably the author does not mean support him personally -- as Jones has shown himself to be a first rate scumbag -- but he means that the threat applies equally to those that support the Koran burning.

UPDATE 9/9: The person who posted this is now clarifying that the Anwar bin Yamani who issued the fatwa is not Anwar al-Awlaki. Given that "bin Yamani" is just a way of saying "son of Yemen", you can understand my confusion. In fact, before we published this one of us asked him in a personal message if Awlaki had issued the statement and his answer seemed to be in the affirmative given that he claimed in the reply that Anwar al-Awlaki is on the governing board of his organization.

Sorry about the confusion.

Update by Howie: Farook's explanation sounds like BS to me.

Great: Quran Burner and Anti-American Hatemongers from Westboro Baptist Church Buddies

phelps_people_with_dove_outreach.jpg

You know, I really should have seen this coming.

Remember that last post about part of me wanting this guy to burn the Quran out of spite? I take it back. If there's one person I hate more than the whiny liberals who can't differentiate between people who want to kill us and people who are burning books it's Fred Phelps, the leader of the cult that calls itself the Westboro Baptist Church.

Phelps is a traitor, plain and simple. His "God hates fags" campaign is just mean and low class. But his "God hates American soldiers" campaign crosses the line into "do you think a jury will by the fighting words defense" territory.

Any friend of Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church deserves our contempt.

Burning Korans and Stopping Mosques Out of Spite

I'm in an especially sour mood today. I know this guy in Florida who is going to burn the Quran on 9/11 is probably a jackass, but I'm getting increasingly pissed at the hypocrisy of our media and elites. We can kill all the Islamic extremists that we want. But hurt their feelings? Now that is un-American!

If it was simply an admission that Muslims are an especially violent people and therefore it is in our own self interest to not provoke them it would be one thing. Instead we get a bunch of malarkey about tolerance from the same people who don't give a damn if building a mosque pisses people off.

Because they actually seem to believe that it's okay to piss some people off, but not others. It's all who the targeted group is. Narrow minded Americans -- piss 'em off, just for spite. Narrow minded Muslims -- oh noes, you must be a bigot! The feelings of Muslims must always be paramount, but the feelings of the surviving family members of 9/11 victims? To hell with them!

I have been going back and forth in my mind about where I stand on this whole mosque issue. No part of me actually thinks Imam Rauf is an Islamist or a supporter of terror. Nor does any part of me actually think the name "Cordoba" was chosen for any other reason than it is the symbol of a non-existent Golden Age of Islam when Muslims, Jews, and Christians all lived in peace and harmony (symbols, by their nature, mean different things to different people). He's just a wishy-washy liberal Sufi unable to distinguish between good and evil in much the same way some of our liberal Christian clerics. He's Jimmy Carter with an Arabic accent.

In fact, the one and only reason I've been against the mosque is because I think that building it on that spot is insensitive. Whether or not Rauf and his congregants mean it this way is beside the point. It's just offensive.

And that's the extent of it. Personally I've lived with more offensive things in the world. It shouldn't be built, but it's their decision and on my list of life's concerns it's way down there. Fine, be jackasses. Build the damn thing.

I've even vocally called out many of my friends who claim that they never suggested the government should be involved in stopping the mosque, but who also publicly encouraged their readers to urge a zoning commission to stop the mosque. Self delusion at best, legalistic sophistry at worst.

I'm also with Howie on this whole Quran burning thing. If a commander of soldiers in the field asks me not to print something that might hurt his troops, I'm not going to print it. Likewise if he asks me not to burn a Quran, then I'm not going to burn it.

But -- to borrow an overused phrase from Obama -- let me be clear why I don't support the 9/11 Quran burnings: I'm not going to give the savages any more reason to kill our troops.

Think of not burning the Quran as an extra bullet proof vest for each of our soldiers, sailors, and airmen in harms way.

I'd like to think that our hypocritical media have all conspired in a Platonic noble lie -- that they really understand that it is Muslim society that is a combination of thin-skinned and murderous, and therefore we must lie in order to appease them.

I'm all for lying when such lying serves some greater good. In this case, equivocating between Islam and all other religions and lying about the nature of Islamic societies might be a good thing if it could be shown to reduce the amount of violence propagated in the name of Islam against America.

I'm pro-America. I want us to win. I think killing our enemies is fine, so I don't really have a problem with lying to them or our allies if that's what it takes.

Hell, we made up all sorts of crap about the Soviet Union during WWII because they were our allies. I have no problem now appeasing the Pakistanis if that means more Pakistanis killing the Taliban and less Americans doing the same job. It's just more efficient.

Give me a call, convince me it's for the good of America, and I'll print your lies.

As long as we all understand that these are lies we are telling.

But from the media bombardment I'm getting I can't help but think that these people actually believe the garbage coming out of their mouths.

And for that I may have just come up with a second motivator for opposing the mosque: spite.

I oppose it for spite. Because I am now in a place I have not been in a long time. A place where it's not so much that I want the anti-mosque forces to win, it's just that I would really enjoy seeing a big plate of humble pie served to the fart-sniffing self-righteous elite who think American is inhabited by bigots and morons.

And it's not just the mosque. Intellectually, I'm with Howie on this burning the Quran thing.

But at a visceral level? Quran fueled s'mores are starting to sound good.

I think what put it over the edge for me was listening to NPR as I drove home for lunch. I actually heard the hostess asking whether or not burning the Quran was illegal as a hate crime. She wasn't kidding. I almost crashed.

And it's seems completely unfathomable to me that the thought would have popped into her head did she not actually believe that is should be illegal.

I no longer feel I inhabit the same world as our elite. They are unable to make even the easiest of moral distinctions. Sure, offending people just to make a point is ... what's the word? uncouth? But it's not in the same universe as those who would kill over being offended.

Which I'm pretty sure I was just told would happen if some guy burned a Quran. People are going to die I'm hearing. But it's the guy burning the Quran and his 50 followers that we should worry about. He's a bigot. Some kind of nut.

But the tens of millions of Muslims who think it should be illegal to desecrate a book? A book for chrissake! Oh, well, yes, these people are a-okay. Salt of the earth. They are freedom loving people just like you and me.

Calling people who believe that mocking their religion or desecrating their holy books should be illegal anything other than fascists with values similar to those of the Spanish Inquisitors makes a mockery of the English language and common sense.

And these are the reactions of moderate Muslims. What separates moderates from extremists in this context is that the moderates want to put Quran burners in jail while extremists want to kill them. And it just gets worse from there since many will support killing any Westerners since we are all somehow morally culpable for not stopping the desecration.

Which is why I'm seriously rethinking supporting the 9/11 Koran burnings. Not because I think it's a good idea, but out of spite.

Spite for the PC elite. Spite for so-called moderate Muslims of the world outraged that America does not have a law against blaspheming their religion.

And spite for hypocrites who will defend to the bitter end the right of a guy to put a crucifix up his ass but are outraged by someone else burning a book that rivals only the works of Marx in inspiring mass killings and oppression.

These people deserve my spite.

And that's why part of me wants this guy to burn the Quran.

I'll admit, it isn't the noblest part of me that wants to egg him on. And many of those who want him to stop are coming from a noble place. They want to protect our people from the savages of the world.

But most of them are just smug self-righteouss better-than-us assholes. And worse.

In the end I'm sure the better angels of my nature will prevail and I'll ask this guy to kindly and voluntarily give way to national security concerns. But for now? For now I'm not so sure.

Suspected US missile attacks rock NW Pakistan

Unusually intense tempo..

AP

DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan — Three suspected U.S. missile strikes in less than 12 hours hit militant targets in northwestern Pakistan on Wednesday, officials said, an unusually intense barrage that follows four other such attacks in the last week. At least 14 suspected militants were killed.

The strikes were in North Waziristan, a lawless region home to insurgents battling foreign troops just across the border in Afghanistan, al-Qaida leaders plotting attacks in the West and extremists behind bombings in Pakistan.

You are all a bunch of f*cking extremist bigots.
"And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will not be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers."

Hollywood: 79 - 6 In Which Someone Other than Muslims Are the Bad Guys

In this "charged atmosphere" of "Islamophobia" Mark Humphries answers the question I asked yesterday about how many movies Hollywood has produced in which Muslims were the bad guys.

He finds 79 movies in which the CIA, "corporations", the British or the American government are the antagonists.

He finds only 6 in which Islamists are ever the bad guys. Of the six I don't think there's a single one in which all Muslims are portrayed as bad or which could be taken by a rational person as somehow painting Islam in general negatively.

I know, he's looking at Islamists -- those in favor of political Islam -- and my question was about Muslims, but a quick look at the 79 doesn't seem to indicate that the two terms are nearly interchangeable in this context.

But I do appreciate the delineation. Especially in movies like The Kingdom where Muslims are portrayed as both the good guys and the bad guys, but the bad guys are Salafi jihadists.

In the rest of the 79 movies Muslims are either not a factor, are the good guys, or are portrayed as victims of the West.

And where there are terrorists nearly all of them are fronts for corporatioins, false flag operations run by the CIA or other government institutions, or some other non-existent anything-but-Islamist group.

Yet were constantly told America is an Islamophobic country and that Islam is under attack here because ... a single small church in Florida might burn a few copies of the Quran?

Did the Hollywood of the Greatest Generation do it this way?

Go read the whole thing.

Mobariz said Noori left his home after receiving a phone call, and his decapitated body was discovered about an hour later.

"The killing of Noori is a big loss for Afghanistan journalists," Mobariz said.

He added that Noori had been working as the deputy chief of a journalists' union. He also directed an educational organization that taught students how to become broadcasters, Mobariz said.

Sandcrawler PSA: No Korans Actually Harmed

At Jawa Report we spend a lot of time offending, well, just about everybody.

If somehow we've missed offending your group over the years we apologize. Just email us and we'll see what we can do.

We spend a lot extra effort pissing off terrorists. Its just what we do. I'm sure in the process we have offended other Muslims as well. We've mocked Islam, drawn Muhammad in all kinds of compromising postitions ran flush the Koran photoshops. You name it we've done it.

EXCEPT we have not actually desecrated any real Korans.

And we don't plan to. And not just because Angelina Jolie asks.

Don't get me wrong. You can hardly be a Christian and also believe that Islam is valid can you?

In fact I'm in the Muhammad is deceived by the Prince of Lies camp.

Jesus said: Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
So I believe Islam is false. Sorry, please don't cut off my head.

Pastor Terry Jones has every right to burn the Koran. Its just a book. He can hardly destroy the Koran by burning a few copies. Just as if someone burned my bible. I might not like it but I can get another copy.

That being said Terry Jones is also a citizen who has been asked a favor by the commanding general during a time of war.

I don't really see he is serving any purpose by continuing.

A Kinder Gentler Fidel?

Tells Amenidinnerjacket he sucks.

Castro's message to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran, was not so abstract, however. Over the course of this first, five-hour discussion, Castro repeatedly returned to his excoriation of anti-Semitism. He criticized Ahmadinejad for denying the Holocaust and explained why the Iranian government would better serve the cause of peace by acknowledging the "unique" history of anti-Semitism and trying to understand why Israelis fear for their existence.

Rifqa Bary gets her green card, and Rifqa's attorney and Pamela Geller get sued by CAIR attorney Omar Tarazi

We were asked to sit on this good news for the past few weeks, but it is now being picked up by the media - Muslim apostate Rifqa Bary has received her green card.

As Jawa readers are aware, since Rifqa's saga began more than a year ago, the two primary goals were to keep her out of her abusive home, and to help her secure permanent resident status to prevent her from being sent back to her native Sri Lanka, where she has already received death threats for converting to Christianity. Her attorneys have now accomplished both. They should be congratulated.

But as the late Billy Mays would say, but that's not all...

Today, the Bary family's CAIR attorney, Omar Tarazi, filed a federal lawsuit against Rifqa's attorney John Stemberger and Atlas Shrugs blogger Pamela Geller. Tarazi suing for $10 million claiming defamation and emotional distress.

Tarazi's lawsuit filing is below the fold.

Bombshell: Canadian Terror Suspects Tied to MasterCard Backed Islamic Charity (bumped)

I alluded to the connection between three terror suspects recently arrested in Canada and a charity which is backed by MasterCard last week. Over the weekend Square Mile Wife put the connections together. Both her post and that of Blazing Cat Fur's are must reads.

Let me quote from SMW as a teaser:

Dr. Khurram Sher, one of the accused, is an officer of the RS Foundation. .... Dr. Sher (yes, this is the former Canadian Idol contestant who had recently been hired on by a hospital in a small Ontario town) was living in a rather pricey neighborhood, in a house owned by Dr. Fasahat Wasty [ed note: antisemitic head of the Islamic charity which MasterCard is backing]....

One of the other terror suspects, Misbahuddin Ahmed (an Xray technician arrested in Ottawa) was active in the online community, and according to the National Post was involved in Montreal's branch of the Al Maghrib institute. Also tied to this institute is Dr. Wasty's wife, Zeba Hashmi who's brother founded the institute....

Ahmed's brother-in-law and sister ran an Islamic children's magazine called Recess Kids which boasted advice from a "Dr. Sher" and carried advertisements for the RS Foundation....

What ties all these suspects together? The Muslim Ball Hockey League in Montreal and the RS Foundation. When SMW began investigating the RS Foundation I found that numerous board members and their buddies were all playing in this Muslim Ball Hockey League, posting stuff on Montreal based Muslims forums about the ball hockey league, etc

Read the rest.

So, the three suspects knew each other because they played street hockey together in a league sponsored by an Islamic "charity" that MasterCard helps sponsor. That "charity" might also run by a relative of one of the suspects. And we know that the man who runs the charity is also an antisemitic Islamofascist.

MasterCard gives money to this charity every time a Muslim uses its sharia compliant credit card. One has to wonder what the money given to the "charity" is used for and whether or not MasterCard is unknowingly giving financial support to terrorists?

UPDATE 9/9: Just to clarify, the Dr. Wasty mentioned above is NOT the Wasty running the charity -- but there probably is a family connection given all the other connections.

Faulty Wiring or Evil Zionist Jooos?

Don't know but glad Hizballah lost some hardware.

Jpost:

Explosions ripped through a building Friday in southern Lebanon that might have been used to store weapons by the militant group Hizbullah, Lebanese security officials said.

The area is patrolled by UN troops and Lebanese soldiers and has been largely peaceful since the war, but there have been a number of mysterious explosions in the past year at buildings suspected of housing Hizbullah arms caches.

It was not clear what caused Friday's blasts, but one of the officials said it might have been triggered by an electrical short circuit setting off secret Hizbullah munitions.

How could a weapons cache be moved into a residential unit with the eagle eyes of UNIFIL patrolling the area? Maybe the UN will pitch in some funds to re-build the damaged structure.

Hollywood: Every One Should Fear American
Bollywood: America Should Fear Jihadis

Finally: A movie showing the ever present danger of violent Islamism in America. Only it wasn't produced in Hollywood, it was produced in Bollywood.

I know El Marco is comparing that Bollywood film with Machete, but the narrative really runs through nearly every film produced by Hollywood. If we're not oppressing Mexicans, we're oppressing [fill in blank with every non-white group].

Seriously, when was the last time Hollywood produced a major film in which the bad guy was Muslim? It's not a rhetorical question. Maybe I'm forgetting one that has come out in the past few years (say, within the past 3 years), but I really don't remember one.

This would be like no films showing a German as a bad guy from 1942-1945.

AQIM Tries the Nationalist Card

Interesting news about a recent posting from al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) which calls for Morocco to take back the Spanish cities of Ceuta and Melilla. The two cities are geographically in North Africa, but are Spanish enclaves not under the sovereignty of Morocco.

Zawya:

In a statement signed by "Abou Walid Almaghrebi Alansari" and published August 27th on several Islamist and nationalist web forums, AQIM said the coastal cities should be "recovered by force" from the control of Spain, and turned into an "area of attrition" against the "occupying crusade enemy" and "stealer of Andalusia".

Al-Qaeda is hoping to take advantage of last month's Spain-Morocco border tensions for propaganda purposes, argued Moroccan researcher Mohamed Darif. The message appeared within days of a demonstration by Moroccans in Ceuta.

"Al-Qaeda is always trying to make use of current events and issues in order to replenish its image by presenting itself as the defender of Islam and Muslims, rather than as a terrorist organisation," Darif said.

By calling for the two enclaves to be reunited under Morocco, AQIM seems to be playing the nationalist card. Many Muslims might be more sympathetic to AQIM if they could be seen as "liberators" from imperialism. This might gain them some traction if they could sell themselves in much the same way as al Qaeda in Iraq did as simply there to "end the occupation". For some time al Qaeda in Iraq even allied itself and worked with nationalist because of a common purpose.

Will this work in Morocco? Doubtful. But still it's interesting to see how groups like AQIM, with little popular support, understand their own limitations and reach out in PR campaigns to potential allies.

AQAP Greater Threat than al Qaeda Central

Interesting news that CIA now considers al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) a greater threat than al Qaeda central in Pakistan/Afghanistan. This means that we will now escalate military operations in Yemen.

Just this morning I saw someone on Fox News yammering on about how scary and wrong it is that we are trying to kill Anwar al-Awlaki, the spiritual leader of AQAP .... because he's an American.

Right, and if Hitler had been born in New Jersey then this numbnut would be all whiny about bombing the Berghof.

I'd be interested to hear Jane's take on this. On the one hand increasing our involvement in Yemen means that we will be giving more arms and money to an oppressive anti-American regime. One that, like the Pakistan of 5 years ago (knock on wood), helps al Qaeda when that is to their advantage and fights al Qaeda when the group oversteps its boundaries. On the other hand ..... what is option B again?

Saudi Puppet: Honor Killings Suck, So Stop it .... HINDUS

John Espisito is right. Honor killings are bad. Whether they are done by Christians, Hindus, or Muslims.

The only problem is that the vast majority of honor killings in the West are done by Muslims. Something Espisito wants you to forget.
