CAIR Totally 100% Outraged by Islamic Halloween Costumes
Things that offend Muslims on Halloween.
And Papa Pashtun! (or Father Raper see previous post)
Spooky Saudi Sharif!
OK so first they tell you how cool their "culture" is then when you start liking their culture they call you a bigot. YOU CAN'T WIN.
Things that did not offend CAIR this Halloween.
Um, uh yeah.
Meanwhile in Switzerland
Swiss authorities said on Friday they had arrested three Iraqi citizens in March who are suspected of providing support to Islamic State and planning an attack in Europe.I know it seems out of place supposed pious Muslims who's computers are just dripping with all types of porn.
The three are also suspected of using explosives and toxic gases with criminal intent, of pornography offences and encouraging illegal access to and from Switzerland, the Swiss public prosecutor said a statement.
The trio, who were not named and have not yet been charged, are still in detention while investigations continue.
Switzerland has sought assistance from European authorities, the prosecutors said. A joint investigation team comprising officers from Switzerland's Federal Criminal Police and the U.S. FBI had also been set up, they said -- a first of its kind since the two countries signed a cooperation pact in 2006.
"No further details relating to this particular criminal investigation can be provided for operational reasons," the prosecutors' statement said.
The three arrests were reported last month by Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger, but the Swiss authorities said they were only confirming the story now so as not to jeopardize the ongoing enquiries.
But on my experience that's pretty common, they will troll you on twitter fabout decadent western civilization for posting a little T&A. But secretly they are the most ravenous consumers of all the worst sorts of pedophilia and bestiality.

Red on Red Jabhat al-Nusra vs ISIS Deir el-Zour
he fighting has escalated between Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front and their allies on the one hand, and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) on the other, as it reached an unprecedented climax in the past few days, both in terms of expansion and violence.ISIS for its part is accusing anyone who fights against them as being FSA or in bed with their enemies.
he battlefields expanded from the countryside of Hassakeh, to the countryside of Deir el-Zour and Maadan, which is between Raqqa and Deir el-Zour. They also covered the town of Jarablos, in the countryside of Aleppo, and the countryside of Latakia. Many killings, assassinations, suicide bombings, executions and mutilations took place during the battles, during which the injured sometimes bled to death without being treated.
One of the probable reasons behind that is that Jabhat al-Nusra has changed its view on the legitimacy of the fighting. While it once considered this fighting a form of “sedition” that must be halted and that it shouldn’t join, after ISIS attacked and gained control of its headquarters and positions in Deir el-Zour last week, Jabhat al-Nusra issued an intense speech that was more a declaration of war. Jabhat al-Nusra was not expected to stand idly by while the fighting reached the city of Deir el-Zour, which the organization considers its capital, particularly after its losses in Raqqa, Hassakeh, and Aleppo. If Deir el-Zour is lost, nothing else would be left for Jabhat al-Nusra.
Jabhat al-Nusra has succeeded in regaining control over all its headquarters and positions which were seized by ISIS last week, most importantly the Koniko oil field. It also took control over the al-Jafra field, and the industrial area. Following the counteroffensive launched by Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic Front and some of the Free Syrian Army’s factions, ISIS was forced to withdraw all of its members from the countryside of Deir el-Zour and regroup in al-Shaddadi city in the countryside of Hassakeh. Local sources said that ISIS no longer has any presence in the countryside of Deir el-Zour, except for the salt mine in al-Tabani town, where its members are under siege.
The hash for Deir el-Zour for becoming very active with reports of fighting and murders.

Stop the Violence! No Wait! Start the Violence!
Two “Stop the Violence” organizers allegedly beat one of their colleagues so severely that he vomited blood and was left unconscious in critical condition.Named Emanuel?
Nikole Ardeno and Emanuel Velez, both 30, accused their former roommate of stealing their property, and allegedly punched and kicked him in the street until he had seizures. Arrested moments later, Ardeno was still wearing the same “Stop the Violence” T-shirt she had on the night before when she coordinated a march protesting two recent shootings, Washington Police Chief Chris Luppino said.
The victim, Joshua Magraff, also is a community organizer with the anti-violence group, and shared an apartment with the suspects until recently.
Magraff had severe injuries and is in critical condition
Obviously he was one of those Right Wing Christian Extremist types.

WTF Happened to Bilal Ahmad? Vol I Issue 2
Lets check in in good old Bilal.
Kashmir Life. Oh my, ironic.
...In another accident, three persons Bilal Ahmad Bhatresident of Turkapora, Imtiyaz Ahmad Bhat resident of Turkapora and Bilal Ahmad Najar resident of Badehar, Handwara got injured when their motorcycles meet with an accident at Chogal, in Handwara. All the injured were shifted to Sub District Hospital, Handwara for treatment where from Bilal Ahmad Najar was shifted to SKIMS Soura, Srinagar for further treatment.Oh my god, now there are two of them!
“On 23rd of October, we reached Bagalpora Bihar and after unloading fruit-laden trucks, we left for Kashmir,” Bilal Ahmad Dar, who hails from Amargarh Sopore, said over phone from Beli Par Police Station in Gorakhpure Uttar Pradesh.Poor Bilal, I feel a much more lucky already.
Bilal said that yesterday evening at around 6:00 pm they reached Bagha Gardha on National Highway in Gorakhpure district of Uttar Pradesh. “We stopped our trucks and three of us went to nearby Transport office and to get some water. I and Altaf started to clean the trucks and in the meanwhile, two persons on a motor-cycle appeared on the highway fired a bullet which hit Altaf and he instantly fell down,” Bilal, who was with Altaf, said.
Bilal said he gave some water to Altaf and they moved injured driver to Gorakhpur district hospital but after 30 minutes he succumbed.
Cornhole Watch: Donald Ray Morgan AKA Nasser Abdul Raheem
A North Carolina man who was featured in a Nightly News story last month about foreign fighters attempting to join the fighting in Syria pleaded guilty on Thursday to terrorism charges.
Donald Ray Morgan pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and illegally possessing a firearm as a convicted felon.
Morgan, 44, was initially held on the gun charge after his arrest at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Aug. 2, shortly after he arrived on a flight from Frankfurt, Germany. The terrorism charge was added Thursday, and he pleaded guilty to both charges.
Morgan admitted that he tried, unsuccessfully, to travel from Lebanon to Syria to join ISIS. He also admitted posting pro-jihadist messages on social media and, as prosecutors put it, conducting an interview with an freelance journalist "to express his support for ISIL/ISIS and violent terrorist activities."
Awesome: Foreign Fighter Pouring into Syria "Faster than Ever" (Guest Post by R. Shackleford)
Hi, it's me again, Rusty Shackleford. You may remember me as the guy in the comments who once kicked Greyrooster in the balls.
I saw this report and was so spookified that I thought I'd pass it on:
“The rate of travel into Syria [by foreign fighters] is greater than we saw into Afghanistan prior to 9/11,” Randy Blake, a senior strategic advisor in the U.S. Office of Director of National Intelligence, said Tuesday during a panel at the annual International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference in Orlando, Florida. “It’s greater than anything we’ve seen into Afghanistan, into Yemen, into Somalia, into Iraq, or anything that we’ve seen in the last 10-year period.”It's a good thing that we have a competent administration in the White House, one that doesn't craft it's security & counterterror policies based on polling numbers. If that were the case, this would be really really scary.
Blake said the number of Westerners heading to Syria to fight has risen so rapidly in recent weeks that a new law enforcement video shown at the four-day event is already out of date.
“The video said there are somewhere around 12,000 foreign fighters in Syria. We would update that number to about 16,000 foreign fighters who have traveled to Syria from over 80 countries,” Blake said, adding that roughly 2,000 of those fighters hail from Western countries -- including "at least 500 from the U.K, 700 from France, 400 from Germany, and more than 100 Americans [who] have traveled, or tried to travel into Syria.”
Dozens of Former Gitmo Detainees Fighting in Syria (Guest Post by Rusty Shackleford)
Hi, I'm Rusty Shackleford. I post here occasionally when Howie lets me.
So, on to news so scary that it's an appropriate way to usher in Halloween:
Of the 620 detainees released from Guantanamo Bay, 180 have returned or are suspected to have returned to the battlefield.Want a really scary Halloween costume? Dress up like an ISIS terrorist.
Of those 180, sources say 20 to 30 have either joined ISIS or other militants groups in Syria, or are participating with these groups from outside countries. Officials say most of those 20 to 30 are operating inside Syria.
All's Well That Ends Well
Yesterday terrorist Moataz Hijazi shot an American Israeli Yehuda Glick activist who lobbies for Jewish access to the Temple Mount.
Muslims don't like Jews on the Temple mount because the al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the rock are their symbols of Islamic domination over the city of Zion (Jerusalem).
Israeli police on Thursday shot and killed a Palestinian man suspected of trying to kill a hard-line Jewish activist in Jerusalem, an incident that quickly sparked clashes between masked stone throwers and Israeli riot police and threatened to further inflame the already high tensions in the city.Both Fatah and the terrorist group Islamic Jihad praised Moataz Hijazi as a martyr.
Jerusalem has seen near-daily clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli police, particularly around a contested site in the Old City that is holy to both Jews and Muslims. Israeli and Palestinian leaders have traded accusations over alleged changes to testy status quo governing worship at the site.
Violence reached a new high late Wednesday, after a gunman on a motorcycle shot and seriously wounded American-born activist Yehuda Glick outside a conference promoting greater Jewish access to the hilltop compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.
The gunman approached Glick and spoke to him in "heavy Arabic-accented Hebrew," according to Moshe Feiglin, a lawmaker with the Likud party. Once he confirmed Glick's identity, the man opened fire at point-blank range, shooting Glick three times before fleeing the scene.
Glick, and a well-known advocate for greater Jewish access to the site, remained in hospital and in serious condition on Thursday.
But for some reason I can't see his "Martyr's smile?"
Allah must not have been pleased with him and Allah knows best.
Oh I almost forgot....
ISIS Crimes Against Humanity in Mosul
Human Rights Watch runs this account of ISIS treatment of Shia near Mosul. The claim that they only killed fighters falls flat because these were not fighters these were prisoners hunted and murdered for sport by ISIS fighters.
Gunmen from the Sunni extremist group Islamic State systematically executed some 600 male inmates from a prison outside the northern Iraqi city of Mosul on June 10, 2014, according to survivors’ accounts. The vast majority of those killed were Shia.
After seizing Badoush Prison near Mosul, the gunmen from Islamic State, also known as ISIS, separated the Sunni from the Shia inmates, then forced the Shia men to kneel along the edge of a nearby ravine and shot them with assault rifles and automatic weapons, 15 Shia prisoners who survived the massacre told Human Rights Watch. The gunmen also killed a number of Kurdish and Yezidi inmates of Badoush Prison, the survivors said.
“The gruesome details of ISIS’ mass murder of prison inmates make it impossible to deny the depravity of this extremist group,” said Letta Tayler, senior terrorism and counterterrorism researcher. “People of every ethnicity and creed should condemn these horrific tactics, and press Iraqi and international authorities to bring those responsible to justice.”
The mass summary executions amount to war crimes and most likely crimes against humanity, Human Rights Watch said.
Spooky Vlad's Dungeon
See the thing that made Vlad so spooky was Sultan Murad. It was the forced conversion from the Catholic Faith to Islam and the witness of the utter brutality of the Ottomans that lead Vlad to such extremes as he fought in the crusade against the Ottomans.
For if one is to defeat such murderous brutality once must be willing to take it to a whole nother level.
During an outdoor festival of St. Bartholomew at Sibiu, Dracula had 20,000 citizens arrested and spiked in one afternoon. Claiming that they were either treacherous bourgeoisie, or supporters of that element, he had them - men, women and infants - impaled on the outskirts of a neighboring forest. As was his custom, he had his servants draw up a solitary dining table of fine food and wine so that he might enjoy his lunch by watching the tortures at close range. He occasionally had a servant dip his bread in the blood of the dying souls so that he could savor the taste of life. (Is it a wonder that Stoker was inspired?)
It was at this function that he espied one of his knights holding his nose at the repugnant smell of death permeating the air. When he asked the soldier if he was making fun of the situation, the fellow stammered, "No, my lord, my stomach churns, but -" and he quickly added, "I am not of the stout heart that my prince be."
"But, why would I want in my service a man who cannot look at death without regurgitating? Death is a soldier's livelihood!" And with that, he called to his bodyguards to impale the feeble fellow. "Let him join these others, but because he had been loyal until today, hoist him higher than the rest that he does not have to smell his company!"

Sorry, couldn't wait.
Australian Terror Recruiter Mohammad Ali Baryalei Is So Thunderstruck
AUSTRALIA’S most senior Islamic State fighter, who allegedly instigated a plot to behead a random member of the public in Sydney’s streets last month, has been killed in a coalition airstrike on the Syrian border town of Kobane, his friends have claimed.See that's him right there! The one running for his life.... and losing.
Authorities were working last night to verify reports that Mohammad Ali Baryalei was “martyred’’ three days ago while fighting with Islamic State, the terror group to which he allegedly recruited scores of young Australians. The former drug-abusing Kings Cross bouncer would be the first Australian fighter killed in the US-led bombing campaign that has been striking Islamic State targets inside Syria and Iraq since August.
Two of Baryalei’s Syria-based friends, who were fellow alumni of the Sydney “Street Dawah” group he led, told The Australian the one-time bit-part actor was killed in an airstrike at least three days ago in Kobane.
Mohamed Zuhbi and Abdul Salam Mahmoud, who have been undertaking humanitarian work focused on the Syrian port city of Lattakia, outside Islamic State’s caliphate, said the reports of Baryalei’s demise were true.
“It was an airstrike, not sure by whom,” Mr Zuhbi said in an online interview with The Australian. “I personally received news from a brother who was with him for the most part of his journey so I believe it is true.”
You're welcome Australia, it was nothing.
Yet Another Beheading
OK so a dude dude IN NY cuts of a Lady's head, drags her into the street, punts her head, and jumps in front of a train killing himself?
Update: Ok... so um, he beheaded his mother. and punted her head down the street.
Cold man, cold.

Video: Antares Rocket Crash
Today's launch of the Cygnus spacecraft failed.
The mission, Orbital CRS-3, marks the first flight of the upgraded Antares 130 rocket, which features a more powerful second stage to accommodate larger future payloads.the launch was scrubbed yesterday due to a ship downrange.
It is also the final flight for the current configuration of Cygnus, with a larger Enhanced Cygnus due to be introduced with the next mission.
This new version will take advantage of the increased capacity of the Antares 130 in order to deliver a greater amount of cargo to the space station.
First flown in April 2013, the launch is overall the fifth flight of Orbital’s Antares rocket which was developed specifically to launch the Cygnus spacecraft.
The introduction of the Antares 130 has been planned since the beginning of the program as Orbital ramp up the rocket’s capacity through upgrades to the second stage.
Which today we didn't get much downrange.
No Compulsion of Religion Under Islam?
Women and girls kidnapped by the Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram are raped and forced to marry fighters even if they are underage, according to testimonies from women who have escaped the group.
But there’s also another motive for the kidnappings: punishing women who seek education. One victim who was kidnapped while traveling home from school in Konduga said that when the militants found out that she and her friends were students they said, “Aha! These are the people we are looking for. So you are the ones with strong heads who insist on attending school when we have said ‘boko’ is ‘haram.’ We will kill you here today.” Boko Haram’s name roughly translates to “Western education is a sin.”
The report confirms some of the worst fears about Boko Haram’s treatment of the girls they capture, specifically when it comes to sexual violence. According to interviews with survivors, most of the sexual violence and rape occurs within the context of forced marriages, although there are exceptions.
Bill Maher? Racist Bigot? Really?
Sometimes the left is unaware of just how silly they actually are, so they double down on stupid.
“There is a cancer of extremism within Islam today,” Zakaria wrote. “A small minority of Muslims celebrates violence and intolerance and harbors deeply reactionary attitudes toward women and minorities. While some confront these extremists, not enough do so, and the protests are not loud enough.”Get that the dangerous thing is truth. Because if we just pretend Islamic Terrorists don't exist maybe they won't chop off our heads and we can go about our lives blissfully unaware of the Genocide of Kurds and Yazidis. I mean surely they won't come for us, ya know.
He was defending remarks made by famously liberal comedian and noted critic of organized religion, Bill Maher. The host of HBO’s Real Time, a formerly celebrated figure on the left, has found himself the target of shaming for noting that the Islamic world is too accommodating to those who engage in illiberal practices like violence against women or the beheading of kafir. He further made the unimpeachable observation that wayward young people have taken to executing attacks on civilians in places like Ottawa, London, and New York City in the name of this religion. For this, over 2,500 students at the University of California, Berkeley, have demanded that the heretic Maher not be allowed to address the campus’s students.
“Bill Maher is a blatant bigot and racist who has no respect for the values UC Berkeley students and administration stand for,” read a petition on Change.org demanding Maher’s ostracism. “In a time where climate is a priority for all on campus, we cannot invite an individual who himself perpetuates a dangerous learning environment.”

Video: The Myth of the Tiny Radical Muslim Minority
As a counter point I'll add that many say that, but the fall of Morsi in Egypt had approximately 80% supporting the Morsi ouster including many Muslims.
So some are perpetually on the fence depending on the wind.
What To Do About The PKK?
Today the Kurdish commander in Kobani asks for more help in fighting ISIS.
Since Sept. 15, we, the people of the Syrian town of Kobani, have been fighting, outnumbered and outgunned, against an all-out assault by the army of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS.Another story of Kurdish resistance against ISIS on NPR this morning brings up the terrorist designation of the PKK who are also fighting ISIS.
Yet despite a campaign that has intensified in the past month, including the deployment of United States-made tanks and armored vehicles, the Islamic State has not been able to break the resistance of Kobani’s fighters.
We are defending a democratic, secular society of Kurds, Arabs, Muslims and Christians who all face an imminent massacre.
Kobani’s resistance has mobilized our entire society, and many of its leaders, including myself, are women. Those of us on the front lines are well aware of the Islamic State’s treatment of women. We expect women around the world to help us, because we are fighting for the rights of women everywhere. We do not expect them to come to join our fight here (though we would be proud if any did). But we do ask women to promote our case and to raise awareness of our situation in their own countries, and to pressure their governments to help us.
We are thankful to the coalition for its intensified airstrikes against Islamic State positions, which have been instrumental in limiting the ability of our enemies to use tanks and heavy artillery. But we had been fighting without any logistical assistance from the outside world until the limited coalition airdrops of weapons and supplies on Oct. 20. Airdrops of supplies should continue, so that we do not run out of ammunition.
None of that changes the reality that our weapons still cannot match those of the Islamic State.
At a checkpoint outside the northern Iraq town of Makhmur, I saw something I'd never seen before in Iraq.The mention is that the PKK got into trouble during the 1990's while trying to carve a Kurdish homeland out of southern Turkey. Today a Kurdish female fighter blowing herself up as a last desperate resort against ISIS is a story of bravery. But back then such attacks against Turkish police and other civilian targets in Turkey earned the PKK a terrorist designation.
Two men were checking cars. One was young and wearing a sand-colored uniform of the official Iraqi Kurdish forces, called the peshmerga. The other was older, grizzled and dressed in an olive-green, traditional Kurdish overall, and he's with Turkey's Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).
"We're happy to be working together," said the older man, Hajji Hussein Abdulrahman.
This is a new development. Until recently, Iraqi Kurdish authorities and the peshmerga didn't deal much with the PKK. There's a long rivalry between the two. Plus, Turkey and the U.S. consider the PKK to be terrorists based on their attacks against civilian targets in Turkey for many years.
But some of those attitudes began to change when the self-described Islamic State, also known as ISIS, charged into northern Iraq and overran large chunks of territory, including this town in June.
The peshmerga were struggling to fight back. But thousands of PKK supporters, who had been kicked out of Turkey, were living in a nearby refugee camp. They picked up their old rifles and joined the fray.
...This isn't the only place were Kurdish fighters have been active. On northern Iraq's Mount Sinjar in August, the PKK helped tens of thousands of minority Yazidis escape the advancing Islamic State.
And the Syrian Kurdish militia, known as the YPG, has been battling to keep the Islamic State out of the town of Kobani.
In the main Iraqi Kurdish city, Irbil, Shiman Eminoglu is a politician from the BDP party, which leans strongly toward the PKK. She says the PKK is fighting for everyone's benefit, and that this should be recognized by the United States.
Then there was no hope of a Iraqi Kurdistan, any hope of Kursish independence in Iraq was quickly dealt with by Saddam's general Chemical Ali. That's not true today. Today there can be an Iraqi Kurdistan. An opportunity is within reach.
I propose that in return for the PKK swearing off any further actions in Turkey some sort of assurance that the Kurds will get their independence or at least a Semi-Autonomous state in Northern Iraq should be offered.
If the parties agree the terrorist designation on the PKK under a strict trial basis could be lifted. It would help the Kurds against ISIS which helps US against ISIS and also Turkey would see its interests protected.
So long as the PKK held up its end of the bargain it could create a larger more unified Kurdish force fighting for their own unified interest. An interest that would dovetail nicely with US, Turkish and Iraqi interests.
The Turks would be hard to drag along, but with the right agreement that gives the Kurds a hope possibly Turkey might bite.
ISIS Tortured Hostages
This shows that Islamist criticism of American policy is a sham. ISIS not only engages in methods they believe the USA has used such as water boarding but go far beyond that into the realms of torture often used by the very middle eastern dictator's regimes they aspire to replace.
The hapless people are stuck between the butcher they knew and the next group of butchers.
NYT's The story of what happened in the Islamic State’s underground network of prisons in Syria is one of excruciating suffering. Mr. Foley and his fellow hostages were routinely beaten and subjected to waterboarding. For months, they were starved and threatened with execution by one group of fighters, only to be handed off to another group that brought them sweets and contemplated freeing them. The prisoners banded together, playing games to pass the endless hours, but as conditions grew more desperate, they turned on one another. Some, including Mr. Foley, sought comfort in the faith of their captors, embracing Islam and taking Muslim names.ISIS murdered Russian hostage.
Their struggle for survival, which is being told now for the first time, was pieced together through interviews with five former hostages, locals who witnessed their treatment, relatives and colleagues of the captives, and a tight circle of advisers who made trips to the region to try to win their release. Crucial details were confirmed by a former member of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, who was initially stationed in the prison where Mr. Foley was held, and who provided previously unknown details of his captivity.
The punishment for any perceived offense was torture.
“You could see the scars on his ankles,” Jejoen Bontinck, 19, of Belgium, a teenage convert to Islam who spent three weeks in the summer of 2013 in the same cell as Mr. Foley, said of him. “He told me how they had chained his feet to a bar and then hung the bar so that he was upside down from the ceiling. Then they left him there.”
During the triage phase, the guards identified the single Russian hostage, a man known to the others as Sergey, as the least marketable commodity.Word of Mr. Gorbunov's fate was unknown to myself. Why ISIS did not release this information to the public is clear, the Russians deal very harshly with those who murder their citizens, a wrath that ISIS would like to avoid.
Identified in the Russian news media as Sergey Gorbunov, he was last seen in a video released in October 2013. Stuttering, he said that if Moscow failed to meet the kidnappers’ demands, he would be killed.
Sometime this spring, the masked men came for him.They dragged the terrified prisoner outside and shot him. They filmed his body. Then they returned to show the footage to the surviving hostages.
“This,” they said, “is what will happen to you if your government doesn’t pay.”
But now that its clear I hope the Russians act, we share a common cause and you have to admire Russian "efficiency" in these matters.

50 Years Ago
Still relevant to this day. If you have a whole half hour to watch, go for it. If not, there are snippets all over YouFaceTube.
The Last Words of Reyhaneh Jabbari
How optimistic was he who expected justice from the judges! He never questioned the fact that my hands are not coarse like those of a sportswoman, especially a boxer. And this country that you planted its love in me never wanted me and no one supported me when under the blows of the interrogator I was crying out and I was hearing the most vulgar terms. When I shed the last sign of beauty from myself by shaving my hair I was rewarded: 11 days in solitary.
Dear Sholeh, don’t cry for what you are hearing. On the first day that in the police office an old unmarried agent hurt me for my nails I understood that beauty is not looked for in this era. The beauty of looks, beauty of thoughts and wishes, a beautiful handwriting, beauty of the eyes and vision, and even beauty of a nice voice.
My dear mother, my ideology has changed and you are not responsible for it. My words are unending and I gave it all to someone so that when I am executed without your presence and knowledge, it would be given to you. I left you much handwritten material as my heritage.
However, before my death I want something from you, that you have to provide for me with all your might and in any way that you can. In fact this is the only thing I want from this world, this country and you. I know you need time for this. Therefore, I am telling you part of my will sooner. Please don’t cry and listen. I want you to go to the court and tell them my request. I cannot write such a letter from inside the prison that would be approved by the head of prison; so once again you have to suffer because of me. It is the only thing that if even you beg for it I would not become upset although I have told you many times not to beg to save me from being executed.
My kind mother, dear Sholeh, the one more dear to me than my life, I don’t want to rot under the soil. I don’t want my eye or my young heart to turn into dust. Beg so that it is arranged that as soon as I am hanged my heart, kidney, eye, bones and anything that can be transplanted be taken away from my body and given to someone who needs them as a gift. I don’t want the recipient know my name, buy me a bouquet, or even pray for me. I am telling you from the bottom of my heart that I don’t want to have a grave for you to come and mourn there and suffer. I don’t want you to wear black clothing for me. Do your best to forget my difficult days. Give me to the wind to take away.
The world did not love us. It did not want my fate. And now I am giving in to it and embrace the death. Because in the court of God I will charge the inspectors, I will charge inspector Shamlou, I will charge judge, and the judges of country’s Supreme Court that beat me up when I was awake and did not refrain from harassing me. In the court of the creator I will charge Dr. Farvandi, I will charge Qassem Shabani and all those that out of ignorance or with their lies wronged me and trampled on my rights and didn’t pay heed to the fact that sometimes what appears as reality is different from it.
Dear soft-hearted Sholeh, in the other world it is you and me who are the accusers and others who are the accused. Let’s see what God wants. I wanted to embrace you until I die. I love you.
Imperial Good News! Abu Dujana Confirmed Dead
A British jihadi from Portsmouth has been killed fighting in the Syrian Kurdish town of Kobani, currently besieged by Islamic State (IS) militants.Mehdi Hassan was a prolific tweeter.
The family of Mehdi Hassan, 19, confirmed to ITV News that gruesome pictures of his body on social media were authentic.
CCTV showed Hassan apparently travelling with four other friends from Portsmouth to Syria in October 2013.

WAPO: First, there was a glimmer of hope: Last Friday, Nigeria said that Boko Haram had agreed to a cease-fire, and that there could soon be talks to free some or all of the girls. “I can say with some optimism, cautious optimism, that were are moving toward a situation where we’d be able to, in the very near future, to be able to get back our girls," Nigeria’s Foreign Minister Aminu Wali told reporters.You could go and read the next part where the Kuffar cling desperately silly ideas that Boko Haram will suddenly start active all honest, merciful and civilized, you know.
However, less than a week later, things appeared to have soured. Not only were there reports that Boko Haram was still fighting past the cease-fire, there were also multiple reports that Boko Haram militants had pulled off another large-scale kidnapping. On Thursday, the BBC reported that "dozens" of women and children from two villages in Nigeria's northeastern Adamawa state had been kidnapped. Other reports put the number of those kidnapped at 60.
The reported kidnapping has led to further skepticism about the Nigerian government's talk of a cease-fire and hopes for the release of the original Chibok girls. "We are confused that hours after the so-called cease-fire agreement has been entered between the federal government and Boko Haram insurgents, our girls were abducted by the insurgents," John Kwaghe, a witness to the attack who lost three daughters, told Reuters.
But I wouldn't want to waste your time.
Terrorists Will Never Beat Canada
And old friend of Jawa Report offers her commentary on the recent attacks ion Canada.
Life Freedom Family: The majority of Canadians did not personally know Cpl Cirillo or WO Vincent, but we mourn them. We mourn them not just because they were great men of courage, but because we see in them our brother, our father, our husband, our friend. We mourn them because their lives ended too soon. We mourn them because it is men like Cpl Cirillo and WO Vincent who make Canada great. As Cpl Cirillo’s family said in a statement late Friday afternoon, he was “Canada’s son.” This is why, on Friday, with but a few hours notice, thousands of Canadians lined overpasses stretching from Ottawa to Hamilton to pay their respects. I also stood on one of these overpasses with my son. We stood with people from all walks of life, with policemen, firefighters, paramedics, veterans, young, old, people of many races and religions, all to recognize Cpl Cirillo’s ultimate sacrifice. From this overpass, at the height of rush hour in the largest city in Canada, we watched the 401 come to a standstill and the entire Westbound lanes clear as the Ontario Provincial Police escorted Corporal Cirillo to his final resting place. People clapped, people stood at attention, some shed a tear. One thing is clear: For every one of us that terrorists kill there are a thousand more. We are not scared. We are not afraid to fight. You will never beat us.Word.

Where's Rusty? Know The Powah!
He's doing better than expected in the Ukrainian Elections.
Speaking to The Associated Press on his van, flanked by Stormtroopers and shrouded in white fumes, Vader explained that his top goal is to computerize all government business.Look out Putin!
"When I get to parliament, I will expel all the deputies. They have proven their uselessness," he said. "Computers will work in their place and they will fulfil their functions without cease."
Pollsters predict the party, which also includes a Stepan Chewbacca on its list, has little chance of getting into parliament in Sunday's vote. Still, the public greets Vader enthusiastically when he drives around the capital atop his van — which he refers to as "my helicopter."
I can't wait for my ministry appointment and the perks. Ukrainian office holders are known to get lots and lots of perks.
Terrorist Killed in Hand Axe Attack on NYC Police
Thursday evening the New York Police Department issued a patrol bulletin alerting officers to be in a state of heightened awareness after Wednesday’s murder of a Canadian soldier and shootout at the Parliament complex in Ottawa. The bulletin warns of potential attacks on uniformed officers.
Today in NYC, a man with an axe approached a group of NYPD officers and, in an unprovoked attack, struck two of them with the axe before officers fired upon the subject, killing him.
The attacker’s name is Zale Thompson. You can see his body in the photo above. He is in a green fatigue jacket with thick black beard.The dead terrorists Facebook page is still up here.

Sandcrawler PSA: Save the Trees
Many liberals are adamant there is no threat of voter fraud that justifies efforts to improve the integrity of elections. “There is no real concrete evidence of voter fraud,” tweeted Donna Brazile, former acting chair of the Democratic National Committee, this week. “It’s a big ass lie.”
James O’Keefe, the guerilla filmmaker who brought down the ACORN voter-registration fraudsters in 2010 and forced the resignation of NPR executives, politely disagrees. Today, he is releasing some new undercover footage that raises disturbing questions about ballot integrity in Colorado, the site of fiercely contested races for the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House, and the governorship. When he raised the issue of filling out some of the unused ballots that are mailed to every household in the state this month, he was told by Meredith Hicks, the director of Work for Progress, a liberal group funded by Democratic Super PACS.: “That is not even like lying or something, if someone throws out a ballot, like if you want to fill it out you should do it.” She then brazenly offered O’Keefe, disguised as a middle-aged college instructor, a job with her group.
ISIS' Boasting That Airstrikes Will Have No Affect on Them Wrong Dead Wrong
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 464 IS fighters, 57 other militants and 32 civilians have died.That a pretty good rate of kill the enemy with a very low rate of collateral damage. Although its pretty easy to pick off ISIS engaging Kobane in a siege, this dispels the myth that the US intentionally targets innocent Muslims. To the contrary we love to support innocent Muslims, but the terrorists, you know, needed killing.
Meanwhile, fierce fighting resumed in the town of Kobane, where militants and Kurdish forces battling for control.
Kurdish sources told BBC Arabic that IS had retaken a strategically important hilltop 4km west of the town.
Kurdish forces fighting IS in Kobane took Tal Shair nine days ago.
Reports also suggest IS fighters have been shelling Kurdish positions and attacking the town centre.
Syrian Kurdish sources told the BBC that IS fighters launched intensive attacks on Wednesday night from the southern and eastern parts of the town, in an apparent attempt to get access to the town centre.
The fighting resumed on Thursday morning after a brief period of calm, the sources added.

Will ISIS Bloodlust Lead it To Murder Abdul Rahman Kassig?
My new friend Houston Baghdadi tells me that
Rahman means mercy and GOD (ALLAH) IS THE MOST MERCIFUL and Abdul means "Slave Of"So Paul Kassigs taken Muslim name is Slave of Mercy.
al-Nusra Front Jihadist Abu Omar Aqidi and Abu-Dunja who's name even I recognize from the boards is both claim Mr Kassig treated them both after Syrian regime attacks on the al-Nusra Front and to execute him would be an act of murder under Islam.
which puts ISIS between a rock and three hard spots. Cornered by its own bravado into either keeping its word and losing Islamic legitimacy or freeing Mr. Kassig to do his work.
Abdul-Rahman Kassig, the American Muslim convert and aid worker formerly known as Peter, has been named by Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant as the next victim in their series of videoed murders of British and American captives.
Isil members warned on Twitter that Mr Kassig was to be killed on Wednesday, as a "deadline" passed for meeting their demands – that America call off its bombing campaign.
But the Isil threat to Mr Kassig has caused dissent from within the ranks of the jihadists' own community, with a number of Islamists speaking out in support of him, particularly because of his conversion.
Abu Omar Aqidi, a prominent member of al-Qaeda faction Jabhat al-Nusra, said in a public statement that he had been told Mr Kassig was the medic who treated him and other fellow jihadists.
Salah ad-Din Refsdal, 51, who was born Paul Refsdal said: "People have suggested that Caliph Ibrahim is not informed that some of his followers are planning to murder Abdul Rahman Kassig.
"That must clearly be the case. Having studied Islam extensively he for sure is aware of how enormous of a sin it would be to murder a brother who just converted to Islam."
Mr Refsdal cited an Islamic ruling condemning the killing of Muslim converts, adding that Baghdadi: "must therefore do the only right thing and stop his followers from murdering our brother Abdul Rahman Kassig".
Meanwhile in Iran
Large crowds numbering in the hundreds have demonstrated in Tehran and Isfahan against several recent acid attacks on women that apparently occurred because they were not properly veiled.
Hundreds gathered in front of the parliament building in Tehran on October 22, while eyewitnesses said hundreds came to the Justice Ministry building in Isfahan, the central-western city where the acid attacks took place.
Demonstrators carried signs against the vicious attacks while calling on the state to protect women against violence.
"Where is my face," read a sign held up by a woman. While another sign said: "A secure street is my right."
"Don't allow crimes against women to become legal in the name of religion and Islam," said another sign, which also called for an end to violence against women.
"Acid attacks are a crime, security, security," chanted protesters, including many men.
Hamas Terrorist Runs Down Israeli Train Passengers Killing Baby
A three-month-old baby was killed and several other people were wounded on Wednesday evening when a Palestinian drove his car into a light rail train station near Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem and ran over over passersby disembarking from the train.
Eight people were wounded in the attack, including the suspected terrorist. A 20-year-old woman was in serious condition, two people were moderately hurt and four more were lightly wounded.
The driver was identified as Abdel Rahman Al-Shaludi, a Palestinian resident of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, who in the past served prison time for security offenses.
He drove the car 14 meters on the tracks itself, hitting disembarking passengers and continuing on along the length of the track. He stopped after hitting a pole a few hundred meters down and then attempted to flee on foot, when he was shot. He was arrested and hospitalized with serious wounds.

Multiple shooters reported in Canada attack
Things are getting real....
There were two soldiers standing guard at the war memorial in Ottawa near Parliament, and a gunman shot one of them, a witness told CNN on Wednesday. Peter Henderson, a journalist, said other soldiers doing drills nearby ran to help the fallen soldier. Henderson said he knew the person shot was a soldier because of the ceremonial uniform the soldier was wearing.Update: Report the soldier has died... From Twitter from a senior minister of the Crown..
There were "several shooting incidents in downtown Ottawa" on Wednesday morning, police said on Twitter. "Incidents occurred at National War Memorial, near the Rideau Centre and Parliament Hill." All Ottawa police buildings remain on lockdown and are closed to the public, police also said on Twitter.
Jason Kenney ن @kenneyjason · 22m 22 minutes ago
Condolences to family of the soldier killed, & prayers for the Parliamentary guard wounded. Canada will not be terrorized or intimidated.
Save The Goats!
In the face of the recent attacks in Canada I feels its critical that we maintain our resolve in the face of ISIS murders. The Kurds agree.
Yet Another Terrorist Attack in Canada (update Two Shooters One Dead Another in Custody)
It appears that ISIS appeals for Muslims to attack nations that are part of the coalition are being heeded resulting in yet another attack.
A uniformed Canadian soldier has been shot at the War Memorial in Ottawa, and gunfire has also broken out inside the Parliament buildingsA terrorist and recent revert to Islam was killed when using his car as a weapon earlier this week.
CPR was performed on the soldier and he has been transported to hospital by ambulance.
Police have told reporters that the suspect, reportedly carrying a "large weapon," possibly a shotgun or rifle, is still on the loose, and the parliament buildings are on lockdown. Prime Minister is safe and "off the hill."
The situation is still developing. Updates will follow.
I'll bet you $100 that the perpetrator of this attack was on Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau's now defunct Facebook page friends list.
Which is why I feel Facebook removed Ahmad's page. So the public can't see all his other terrorist pals.
We'll update when we know more about today's um, incident.
Update: More here from CBCNews:
An arrest has been made after at least two people were shot in a hail of gunfire on Parliament Hill and the nearby cenotaph.
The victim appears to be a soldier. Several people were seen performing CPR.
Another body is reported to be on the ground just outside the Library of Parliament.
Veteran Affairs Minister Julian Fantino told QMI Agency at least one of the shooters was shot and killed inside the building.
Two men were seen jumping from a Toyota Corolla, followed by dozens of shots.
The car now sits empty outside Centre Block. It has no licence plates.
Journalists reported police were trying to keep them away from the scene. Those inside Parliament reported they were told to stay inside rooms with the door locked.
Update IV: Coincidence or motive?
It appears there was only one shooter despite earlier reports of two. ISIS has claimed the attack.
Update 10/23/2014 06:00 CDT: Robert Stacy McCain has more on Michael Zehaf-Bibeau
We learn that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the terrorist killed in his attack Thursday on the Canadian Parliament building in Ottawa, was both mentally ill and a convert to Islam:Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was born in 1982 and was the son of Bulgasem Zehaf, a Quebec businessman who appears to have fought in 2011 in Libya, and Susan Bibeau, the deputy chairperson of a division of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board. The two were divorced in 1999. . . .So we don’t know, and may never know, exactly how it was that Zehaf-Bibeau went from crazy Muslim to terrorist. Rather than focus on the details of that, however, let’s look at the general pattern in the context of history. What you find about killers like this is that the misfit or mental case has both real-life problems and an extremist ideology. Think about Lee Harvey Oswald who, like Zehaf-Bibeau, was the product of a broken home and, like Zehaf-Bibeau, adopted the ideology of a foreign enemy. Whereas the Canadian-born Zehaf-Bibeau became a Muslim in the 21st century, the American-born Oswald became a Marxist at a time when the Soviet Union was America’s greatest enemy.
Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau grew up in Eastern Canada, including Ottawa and Montreal, and had spent time in Libya before moving to Western Canada to become a miner and labourer, according to friend Dave Bathurst.
...At the Burnaby mosque, Mr. Bathurst said his friend’s “erratic” behaviour — he did not elaborate — caused frictions with the elders at the house of worship, who asked him to stop attending prayers. At that time, Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was living in a barely furnished single-room apartment.
Mr. Bathurst said he recalls his friend being arrested at the mosque a few years ago after bizarrely calling police to tell them about a crime he had committed many years before.
What causes some people to adopt the ideology of hostile foreign powers? They are misfits and malcontents who are alienated from their own national society, hostile to the dominant culture. By identifying with an extremist ideology, this type of warped personality seeks a kind of empowerment that enables them to enact their fantasy of revenge on the society that rejects the misfit.
Irrelevant Fat Bastard Adam Gadahn Goes Full Retard
So al-Qaeda's featured star of its new Resurgence magazine is a Jihad lazy fat propagandist hiding in an ISI bunker in Pakistan. Good luck with that.
Resurgence’s focus on China also follows al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri recently establishing a South Asia branch to try and extend the group’s operations to the Indian continent. The move was largely seen as an attempt to compete with the Islamic State for the leadership of the jihadist world.One of the most telling signs that Gadahn has whole lot of extra time on his hands is an article in which he quotes Anwar al-Alwaki who reasoned that if Muslim nations won't accept Ronald McDonald's Imperialism then McDonnell Douglas will send Strike Eagles to bomb innocent Muslims. He even had time to demonstrate it graphically.
The same competition almost certainly motivated al-Qaeda central to publish the English-language magazine as well. The al-Sahab media organization has been active since around 2001 — although its activities have rapidly diminished over the last few years — but this is the first time that it or al-Qaeda central has published an English-language magazine. However, the terrorist group’s Yemen-based branch, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), has long published an English language magazine called Inspire, which Resurgence is modeled on.
Inspire was best known for trying to motivate potential lone wolf terrorists in Western countries in the United States and Europe. Resurgence at times seems to try to emulate this approach, only with an eye toward populations mostly outside the Western world.
That al-Qaeda is attempting to use an English-language publication to motivate would-be jihadists in places like Xinjiang displays a remarkable degree of desperation, incompetence or both, none of which bodes well for the group’s longevity. Terrorist groups have a history of failing under the leadership of Ayman al-Zawahiri, and al-Qaeda central increasingly appears destined to suffer the same fate.
And as an added bonus Resurgence promises even more of Fat Bastard's I'm a military genius but I'm too important for Jihad in upcoming issues!
Ass-Cloud Media, its run by Ape-Pig-Man.

Dead Quebec Terrorist Who Murdered Canadian Soldier Was Arrested Trying ti Join Syrian Jihad But Then Released
You can’t detain people merely for having radical thoughts, the RCMP said Tuesday as the force tried to explain how a suspected homegrown terrorist ended up committing a hit-and-run that killed a soldier Monday.Trying to join ISIS is not just having radical thoughts, we need to treat it as the serious crime that it is. Akin to Treason or Aiding an Enemy of the State during wartime.
For four months, Martin Couture-Rouleau was investigated by the RCMP, who suspected the converted Muslim Quebec man had become radicalized. They even arrested him when he tried to fly to Turkey this summer.
Its a problem because no country is willing to recognize ISIS as a belligerent state actor and declare war on it.
They are more than willing to let you die in order to give themselves political cover and a reason to conduct a non-war to gain the power to not win the war.
But none of them are willing to actually win the war and return you your freedom after. Its perpetual incompetence and dhimmitude as far as the eye can see.
Actual Real Life Terrorists Notice Houston Baghdadi's American Jihad
click for larger
And in English for Arabic challenge folks like myself.
I'd say that ups the danger that AbdulRahman Baghdadi poses, wouldn't you.
If the Muslim community in Houston cannot foster and guild him correctly onto a better path, then someone else will. He will meet a real terrorist or group online who will take advantage, give him that place he is seeking and attempt to influence him to do something really extra stupid and/or dangerous.so it appears that at least one of my fears if founded. Given yesterday's events in Canada I don't think we can afford to just let Jihadis run around.
After all Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau was being watched, but the authorities thought his only crime was the not really a crime crime of aiding the dissemination of al-Qaeda propaganda in a context of support for al-Qaeda and ISIS.
Its this context that we have said for years justifies the fighting against the propagation of terrorist materials by groups that have declared open war on the west and are also a specially designated terrorist group.
This is not banning "information" as some suggest, rather it is disabling the enemies propaganda outlet. To deny the enemy a den, where they become more radicalized and prone to act out their Jihad on innocents.
Which is right where we are with Adam "Baghdadi" although he openly declares allegiance to IS and spreads messages of support, which by the way are a specially designated terrorist group, but we wait and wait for the "real crime".
I fear pretty soon we're going to get a real crime.
This is the product of the watch only policy on online terrorism. An ever, growing, ever more radical, and ever more radical group of terrorists grows unchecked. With the end result being real world terrorism.

Breaking Two Canadian Soldiers Run Down in Apparent Domestic Terror Attack (Update: Radicalized Muslim Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau Killed By Police in Attack) (Update II: One of The Canadian Soldiers Injured in Terrorist Attack Dies of His Injuries)
al-Qaeda and ISIS has been asking for acts like this in various online magazines and videos.
Toronto StarThe good news is whomever did it is Dead Jim!MONTREAL—The suspect in a hit-and-run that injured two Canadian soldiers in Quebec — an incident identified as a possible terror attack — is fighting for his life in hospital after being shot several times by police.
The shocking incident, which occurred at about noon Monday in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, also sent the two Canadian Armed Forces personnel to hospital with one fighting for his life and the other having suffered minor injuries, according to the Quebec provincial police.
The two soldiers were reportedly walking through the parking lot of a shopping centre located less than three kilometres from the Collège militaire royal de Saint-Jean, the French-language university run by the Department of National Defence, when they were run down by a driver.
A police chase ensued and the car drove into a ditch after the driver lost control of the vehicle, police said.
Witnesses who spoke with the TVA network Monday afternoon said they saw a man emerge from the flipped vehicle that was lying in a ditch on the side of the road. The man had his hands in the air and was walking toward police when at least one officer opened fire on the suspect. The witnesses said they heard up to seven gunshots.So we're not really sure of the motive, the knife may have been the reason officers opened fire. Normally I might be skeptical of trigger happy police but in this case, meh.
TVA also showed images of a knife with an elaborate handle lodged into the ground near where the incident occurred.
A police spokesperson confirmed that the two injured pedestrians were members of the military but said it was too early in the investigation to comment on suggestions it may have been a terror attack.We'll know more about motive once the dead perp is identified, it would however fit with recent threats against any nation who opposes ISIS.
Hat Tip: Life Freedom Family.
Update: Confirmed stiff was a terrorist.
The driver of a car who rammed two Canadian Forces members near Montreal before being shot dead by police was known to counter-terrorism authorities who believed he had become radicalized, the RCMP said on Monday as they continued to investigate the possible terrorist attack.He called himself Ahmad LeConverti on Facebook.
“This individual was known to federal authorities including our Integrated National Security Investigations team in Montreal who along with other authorities were concerned that he had become radicalized,’’ the RCMP said in a statement. The force declined further comment.
The 25-year-old, known as Martin “Ahmad” Rouleau, allegedly hit two members of the Canadian Forces as they were walking in a strip mall just outside St-Jean-sur-Richelieu at about 11:30 a.m. Police chased the man more than four kilometres until his car flipped into a ditch.
The man then exited his car, allegedly holding a knife, and police opened fire, seriously injuring him, said Sûreté du Québec Sgt. Joyce Kemp. He was transported to hospital, but police later confirmed he had died.
The suggestion the incident was an act of terrorism was first raised in the House of Commons by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who said he was aware of the “extremely troubling” reports and that authorities were investigating.
From what I can tell he was a member of an Anti American Facebook group called United Slaves of America.
Our prayers go out to the family and to all of Canada.
Also my apologies that your loss for standing with America against ISIS has gotten little or no notice in the American press.
I didn't hear it on NPR, I don't see it on CNN, I don't see it on ABC, CBS. no not even FOXNEWS.

Pakistan to Execute Woman for Blasphemy
A Pakistani court has upheld the death sentence of a Christian woman whose 2010 conviction for blasphemy led to the assassination of two politicians who supported her, a defense lawyer said FridayNote the story is from the Times of Israel, a state that guarantees freedom of religious expression and a state in which you cannot be prosecuted for blasphemy of any sort.
Asia Bibi, a 50-year-old mother of five, had appealed before the Lahore High Court against the ruling, in which she was found guilty of insulting Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, but the court rejected her appeal Thursday, her lawyer said.
Under Pakistani blasphemy laws( introduced by the military dictator Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq in 1980s), insulting the Quran or the Prophet Muhammad can be punished with life imprisonment or death. Experts say the laws often are exploited for personal gain.
To add insult to injury, Israel also has a miracle of modern engineering called a sanitary septic system.

What? No Death to America?
Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei released a statement about the goals of the Iranian regime. No where did he mention Death to America or Israel.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a decree issued on Saturday communicated the outlines of cultural and scientific policies to the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution, and underlined the need for the strategic management of the challenges facing the cultural arena.Which if you actually read it carefully seems to indicate Iran will continue nuclear development and might replace the phrase "Death to" with "Cultural Engineering".
Ayatollah Khamenei reminded the council in his decree to keep a watchful eye on its main duties in such "key and fundamental areas as science production, lifestyle, education and research, public culture and cultural engineering".
The Supreme Leader reiterated that the council should prioritize full and swift execution of decisions and their follow-up until achieving the desired results.
Ayatollah Khamenei noted that the council is also responsible for improving the quality and quantity of cultural products through proper policy-making.
"Serious pursuit into the country's progress and expediting Iran's scientific and technological movement is one of the top most priorities of the country with regard to which the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution plays a serious role," Ayatollah Khamenei said, adding, "The pace of the country's scientific growth should not witness even the slightest reduction on any pretext, rather it should speed up everyday and the council should play its role in supervising, improving and directing this momentum."
The Supreme Leader urged the council to deal more seriously with the issue of cultural engineering and renovation of Iran's educational and scientific system, including education and higher education as well as change in humanities.
Which bums be out, I mean if we don't say "Death to America" it takes a lot of the fun out of Jawa Report.

Egyptian Muslims Bomb Other Egyptian Muslims For Being The Wrong Kind of Muslim
CAIRO (AP) — Two bombs went off in a city in northern Egypt late Thursday, striking a Sufi Muslim religious festival and wounding 11 people, officials said, the latest in a spate of attacks that have targeted Egyptian government forces, institutions and public gatherings.The old set another bomb to bomb the response to the first bomb is a standard al-Qaeda terror tactic.
The bombs were placed behind a mosque and went off near-simultaneously in the Nile Delta city of Tanta were residents and pilgrims crowded the streets, observing the Festival of Sheikh el-Sayyed Ahmed el-Baddawi, a revered 13th century religious figure. The festival draws massive crowds every year. Sufism is a mystic branch of Islam.
Most of the victims were wounded by flying shrapnel, said Magdy Awad, chairman of the local ambulance services. The victims were taken to the Tanta University Hospital and none were reported to be in critical condition.
The number of casualties could have been higher but a bomb squad was able to dismantle a third explosive device, which had also been placed near the mosque, an Egyptian security official told The Associated Press. He official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to media.

Islamic State of Losers Run From Kobani!
Islamic State fighters have been driven out of Kobani, the Kurdish town that straddles the Syrian-Turkish border, after weeks of heavy fighting, according to Kurdish sources speaking to RT.
A Kurdish commander said that ISIS retreated overnight – withdrawing by 2 km east and 9 km west.
The Kurds are now clearing the city. The Islamists have left behind suicide bombers hiding in the ruins of the various buildings in the city.
"We can still hear sporadic gunfire and explosions coming from Kobani," RT's Murad Gazdiev reports from the Turkish-Syrian border.
However, a victory announcement from the Kurdish fighters is yet to be made because the whole of the city has not been secured.
Now They've Done It!
Members of a massive Dutch motorcycle gang, armed with Kalashnikov rifles, recently joined Kurdish forces battling the Islamic State in Iraq, vowing to “exterminate the rodents.”
The leader of No Surrender -- which has dozens of chapters in the Netherlands and across Europe -- told state broadcaster NOS on Friday that three of its members have traveled to Mosul in Northern Iraq to take up the fight against ISIS, AFP reports.
A photo posted on a Dutch-Kurdish Twitter account last week shows a heavily-tattooed man in military garb flashing the “victory” sign alongside a Kurdish fighter inside a bunker.
“Ron from The Netherlands has joined the Kurds to exterminate the rodents of [ISIS],” a caption with the photo reads, according to the New York Post.

Kurds Assist ISIS Fighter
Kurdish grocer Cuneyt Hemo remembers the moment he crossed paths with a jihadist Islamic State (IS) prisoner inside the besieged Syrian town of Kobane.So the next day the Kurds shot him in the head as requested.
"He begged us to kill him so he could go to paradise and be rewarded," Hemo told AFP, in a rare glimpse of life inside the town which has been fought over street by street for nearly a month.
The bearded jihadist explained at length to his captors how he had come to Kobane to "deliver it from the kuffar" (the infidels).
"We tried in vain to help him find reason. But he did not want to know anything," said Hemo.
"He said again and again that we were the infidel and he wanted to go to paradise to find the 40 women who had been promised to him," he added.
All's well that ends well I always say.

Most Likely Drunken Idiot Jailed For Being Drunken Idiot
ennessee man was in custody on Thursday and facing criminal charges after claiming to be a member of ISIS and threatening to behead his neighbors and burn down their homes, police said.OMG! ISSI is lose in Tennessee too!
Tullahoma Police Chief Paul Blackwell said the man – Terry Wayne McCullough, 59 – is a known troublemaker but that the threats had to be treated seriously.
“We’ve dealt with him quite a few times over the years,” Blackwell said. “Most of the issues we’ve had to deal with him have been minor, misdemeanor charges.”
McCullough is in the Coffee County Jail on $10,000 bond and charged with criminal conspiracy. He is due in court Oct. 23.
Blackwell said that when McCullough “described ISIS, he was calling it ISSI.”

Akba Jihad Jordan's Jihad Ends
WASHINGTON—Akba Jihad Jordan, 22, of Raleigh, North Carolina, pleaded guilty before United States Magistrate Judge Robert B. Jones to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. Jordan and co-defendant Avin Marsalis Brown, 21, also of Raleigh, were arrested on March 19, 2014, and charged initially in a criminal complaint. On April 1, 2014, a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Jordan and Brown with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.
United States Attorney Thomas G. Walker stated, “This investigation is a sober reminder that we must remain vigilant in our efforts to prosecute extremists who conspire to provide material support to foreign terrorist organizations.”
“Akba Jordan turned his back on his own country and was willing to fight side by side with terrorist groups in Yemen and Syria who wish to do us harm,” said John Strong, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in North Carolina. “American citizens who offer support to terrorist organizations pose a grave threat to our national security and will face serious consequences for their actions.”
As set forth in the affidavit supporting the complaint, Brown initiated contact online with an undercover employee of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Brown requested assistance in traveling overseas for “fisabilillah”—a phrase commonly utilized by Islamic Extremists to refer to joining extremist groups in violence overseas. Subsequently, both Brown and Jordan engaged in numerous discussions with an FBI confidential source in which they expressed a desire to travel overseas to join certain groups in fighting the “kuffar” (non-Muslims) and “munafiq” (Muslims considered to be hypocrites), primarily in either Syria or Yemen. These groups included al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS), and jabhat al-Nusrah (JAN). They also talked frequently about weapons and the use of weapons in fighting the kuffar, both overseas and in the United States. Jordan specifically discussed with Brown the weapons he had in his possession, including an AK-47, and described how he would not hesitate to use them. The affidavit describes a meeting at Jordan’s apartment on Dec. 30, 2013, during which Jordan showed Brown how to break down the AK-47.
On March 19, 2014, Brown was arrested at Raleigh Durham International Airport prior to boarding a flight with a final destination in Turkey. Brown stated in an interview that he intended to travel from Turkey into Syria. Once overseas, Brown intended to meet with a member of ISIS whom he had befriended online. Once established, and after Jordan had obtained his own passport and enough funds to purchase a ticket, Brown could then assist Jordan in entering Syria from Turkey to additionally join Brown.
Jordan, who had not yet obtained a passport, was also arrested on March 19. Jordan admitted that he had made an appointment to obtain a passport so that so that he could go to Syria and fight. A search warrant executed that day at Jordan’s apartment recovered the AK-47 and several other weapons. On Aug.12, 2014, Brown pleaded guilty to the indictment. His sentencing is currently set for Nov. 6, 2014.
Investigation of this case was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Charlotte Division, Resident Agency Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). The Raleigh JTTF consists of the following agencies: FBI, DHS-H.S.I., Raleigh Police Department, Durham Police Department, Cary Police Department, NC State Bureau of Investigation, and the NC State Highway Patrol. The prosecution is being handled by Assistant United States Attorney Jason Kellhofer and Trial Attorney Michael Dittoe of the Counterterrorism Section in the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

Houston Baghdadi's Terribly Terrifying Tour of Terror Totally Terrorizes Texas (***Exclusive Must Cite Jawa Report***)
A shocking video has been posted online showing a Muslim-American in the Houston area pledging allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group in front of a police officer while being escorted away from a mosque.The article goes on to mention many of Mr. Baghdadi's recent postings. Including a series from his youtube channel where he is booted from the El-Farouq or al-Farouq mosque in Houston for correcting small children for eating with their left hand rather than their right as dictated by the Sunnah or traditions of Muhammed.
The video was uploaded September 21 by a man who goes by the names of Abdul-Rahman Baghdadi or Houston Baghdadi.
The complete series is here on his youtube although he has removed part 3, I'm not sure why, he does um, a lot of things.
We at Jawa report have received a lot of tips about Mr. Bahgdadi. We've reported on his antics twice before.
Now let me just say this one more time before everyone panics and starts thinking an army of the Caliphate is lose in Houston.
That Boy Ain't Right!In fact Jawa Report interviewed Adam over the weekend.
Here are a couple excerpts.
OK so his mama didn't raise no fool, he's very aware of rules. He's also very fascinated with Arabic Nasheeds and taped or online sermons.
Anyway the interview goes downhill from there with dares to read the book of Miriam from the Koran and charges about the Jews changing the Bible.
This displays another quirk of the Islamist thought process, God can will the Koran to be the unaltered word. But the Bible, that is a Zionist conspiracy!
Note to beginners: Any time there is a contradiction, always blame the Jews!
On to my point, I started to look into Mr. Baghdadi because I started getting a lot of mail, a lot of tweets of him in the Houston area. He's upset a lot of people. Because its obvious, a guy running around with ISIS logos singing Nasheeds and pledging allegiance to IS must either be really dangerous, crazy or both. Right?
So in my travels I've noticed a few things about Houston or Adam whatever.
First he is very intelligent in a way. He loves Arabic Nasheeds and Islamic traditions. He is like an encyclopedia of Islamic call and response. He always has an Arabic phrase or a praise on the tip of his tongue for any situation.
Second, his online footprint and connections are much wider than it appears at first, he's not a half bad propagandist. Also he's not unconnected in the sense that he knows where the hot contacts are and knows many.
Third, although he expresses himself well, he seems to have trouble predicting or understanding the reactions of others. When he is tossed from al-Farooq masjid he states he didn't realize the other Muslims would be offended by his insistence that four year kids follow the Sunnah of eating with the right hand to the letter. He desperately tries to explain himself over and over as if... if they only understood him, they would accept him.
He's searching for a place to belong. Unfortunately the Muslims in his community find him so annoying, understandable, that he turns online.
I can't say for sure but I suspect most of his perception that Islam = ISIS or AQ comes from online propaganda, radical preachers and the contacts he has. Most likely not from the Islamic community in Houston.
And that perception is not entirely inaccurate, many Muslims from around the world also subscribe to that. This is where Baghdadi has found his community and like minded thinkers. Often times the most radical Islamic views are the most accessible and easiest to find. The most controversial views are by default the most popular on the internet.
So after The Vegas incidents, I became a little worried myself and checked with some Jawa contacts. Which I guess is the whole point of this post. To share what I know without being unfair to Mr. Bahgdadi or revealing too much.
Honestly I wasn't going to run anything else on this subject, but the fascination and alarm with this guy is widespread.
So far as I know Mr. Baghdadi has not committed any crime, OK two crimes, he defaced public property (in a totally reversible manner) and improper lane usage. I have him dead to rights on the improper lane usage too!
There is one more crime if it could be proven the intent of his postings was to threaten harm or terrorize, that can be unlawful. I don't think that's the case. He just does things, sometimes very odd things, and people react. He see's that he gets a reaction and does it again, just for the reaction.
So far its been a pretty successful strategy, don't you think?
Most of the concerns raised have been that either Mr. Bghdadi is part of an organized ISIS movement or that he is a danger to himself or others. But so far as I know he has not hurt anyone nor taken part in spreading an organized effort to aid ISIS. He has posted some propaganda and also expresses support.
In one video he declares "I am not dangerous to anyone." And a desire to confine himself to Dawa or preaching of his word. A sort of pacifist if you will, at least so far.
On of the main points he seems to be making and one that alarms many is his use of the ISIS flag.
In his view this is not just ISIS' flag, technically he is correct, its the seal of Muhammad. He feels that people unjustly fear this symbol due to the negative publicity ISIS receives in the media. The negative and fearful reaction even among the Muslims at the mosques he's been thrown out of is something he seeks to change. Possibly all by himself. He thinks that by wearing it he can remove some of the stigma associated with the symbol.
As I said above he sees himself as a pacifist of sorts. He stated that his dream in an Islamic state would be to do "Humanitarian work." When confronted with the actual violence and war in areas currently controlled by ISIS, he tends to balk and refuse to accept this as fact. Choosing instead to believe these accounts to be lies or misrepresentations of ISIS by the Zionist controlled media of course.
As to the danger to himself Mr. Bahgdadi is very aware that he is attracting the attention of law enforcement, posting this message to the FBI recently.
The local police and the FBI are probably just as annoyed with Mr. Bahgdadi as the Muslim community at al-Farooq masjid is, feeling stuck with a babysitting job they didn't really ask for.
That is not to say there is not a danger. My opinion is that the danger can manifest itself in two ways.
One, Adam feels rejected or that his message is ineffectual, thus causing an escalation in his behavior that leads to an unfortunate and bad ending to this story.
Which is why its so discouraging that the Muslim community has rejected him outright. He is obviously seeking to join them, almost desperately quoting phrases and doctrine that he feels should make him accepted among them only to get the boot once again.
He's trying so hard to gain acceptance, but he does not understand why he is rejected. After all in his mind he is preaching Islam, Muslims should accept him. Still no matter how many times this happens he doggedly keeps trying.
Second, If the Muslim community in Houston cannot foster and guild him correctly onto a better path, then someone else will. He will meet a real terrorist or group online who will take advantage, give him that place he is seeking and attempt to influence him to do something really extra stupid and/or dangerous.
In fact that last scenario may already be in play to some extent. So do we just have to watch this until the inevitable train wreck? It appears so.
Anyway I don't feel its indicative of any overt widespread movement to support IS in Houston or an existing cell about the attack from within. Rather its more indicative of the susceptibility of the weak, the isolated, the freakish or slightly off person to the radical online material that pervades online discussions of Islam and the war on terror. Mr. Baghdadi has accepted as fact much of that narrative as the unalterable will of Allah.
He holds a strong idealized Utopian vision for a Caliphate established by ISIS, seeking out information that supports this dream while rejecting any information that would contradict this vision or his faith.
Wait for it, wait for it.
That's not to say he's crazy, Oh WTF am I kidding the guy is total batshit. ;-)
I'm going to leave you with a few of the more moderate comments from Mr. Baghdadi. Remember moderate is a relative term.
In closing Mr. Bahgdadi says he's seeking God, he is dedicated and very religious. At this point the greatest danger seems to be to himself.
He has been rejected by the Muslim community for the most part. I hope he finds his place in the community. That someone there has the time and patience to steer him in the right way.
Why did I befriend him in this way, because someone has to.
Of all the sources and folks I have discussed this issue with the one common thread we all agree on is this...
This isn't going to end well is it?
No, I fear it won't end well at all. But I hope I'm wrong. I really do.
Thanks to Mr. Bahgdadi for answering our questions. He says he's an open book. So draw your own conclusions.
*I use Adam as a name for Mr. Bahgdadi because some sources within the Islamic Society of Houston use that name for him. He has so far not claimed that as a given name to myself. Its a possible Kunya. I do have a name but I won't reveal it here for obvious reasons.
Imperial Good News! Airstrikes Kill Hundreds of ISIS Fighters Near Kobane
A barrage of U.S.-led airstrikes in and around the Syrian city of Kobani, including 39 over the past two days, has killed hundreds of Islamic State fighters and has stiffened the city's Kurdish defenders, the Pentagon's spokesman said Wednesday.Get some!
Offering an unusually detailed description of the fighting, Rear Adm. John Kirby told reporters that all but "hundreds" of civilians have evacuated the city and that increasing numbers of Islamic State group fighters are flowing in.
"One of the reasons why you're seeing more strikes there is because there is more ISIL there," Kirby said, using a common acronym for the extremist group. Their greater numbers are providing more targets for U.S. bombs, he said.
"It's hard to give an exact number, but we believe that we have killed several hundred ISIL fighters," he added. He did not specify a time period; airstrikes there began Oct. 1, according to U.S. Central Command, which announced Wednesday that it had launched 18 airstrikes near Kobani over the previous 24 hours, following a barrage of 21 strikes there the previous 24 hours.
Kirby said Kobani remains in danger of falling to the Islamic State fighters, who are intently focused on the city.
"These guys want to grab ground. They want territory," he said. "Kobani is a territory they want."

These Aren't The 5,000 Chemical Warheads, Shells or Aviation Bombs We're Looking For
It's a stunning revelation: American soldiers in Iraq came across thousands of chemical weapons -- and a number of them suffered long-term injuries after being exposed to mustard and sarin gas.Move along, move along.
And today, ISIS controls the territory where these chemical weapons were found.
These facts are laid bare by New York Times reporter C.J. Chivers in a long article, “The Secret Casualties of Iraq’s Abandoned Chemical Weapons.” How ironic that the left-leaning Times is presenting facts that are at odds with a favorite narrative of the anti-war left -- namely, that the mendacious Bush administration had lied about the existence of WMDs in Iraq.

Obama's Coalition Partner Bombs Kurds
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
(Reuters) - War against Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq threatened on Tuesday to unravel the delicate peace in neighbouring Turkey after the Turkish air force bombed Kurdish fighters furious over Ankara's refusal to help protect their kin in Syria.
Turkey's banned PKK Kurdish militant group accused Ankara of violating a two-year-old cease-fire with the air strikes, on the eve of a deadline set by the group's jailed leader to salvage a peace process aimed at halting a three-decades-long insurgency.
At least 35 people were killed in riots last week when members of Turkey's 15-million-strong Kurdish minority rose up in anger at the government for refusing to help defend the Syrian border town of Kobani from an Islamic State assault.

Where is Dr. Rusty Shackleford? Advanced Weapons Division Edition
A top secret weapons development program has been scrapped after countless allegations of misconduct and numerous injuries were sustained by soldiers and Marines in Afghanistan, Duffel Blog has learned.
Dubbed “The Lightsaber,” the weapon (nomenclature MR2D2) was a near perfect imitation of those carried by Jedi Knights in the iconic Star Wars movies.
“Even with having the most professional military in the world,” said Pentagon spokesman George Little, “we did not anticipate the unintended consequences. Apparently, when you give soldiers a weapon they’ve dreamed about their entire lives, their intelligence drops to the level of a retarded monkey.”
ISIS Uses Mustard Against Kurds?
Of course if Assad used mustard that would be some sort of red line, but ISIS uses mustard and no boots on the ground.
Gloria Center: The fate of Kobani city now hangs in the balance, as around 9000 fighters of the Islamic State organization close in on the Kurdish held area. The current IS assault on the Kobani enclave was not the first attempt by the jihadis to destroy the Kurdish-controlled area.Hat Tip: @rumrot.
The Kobani enclave, most of which is now in the hands of the IS, at one time extended to Tel Abyad in the east, and Jarabulus in the west. It constituted a major hindrance to the desire of the jihadis to maintain free passage for their fighters from Raqqa city up to the Turkish border and westwards towards the front lines in Aleppo province. IS has therefore long sought to destroy it.
Prior to the current campaign, the most serious (but unsuccessful) attempt to conquer Kobani came in July 2014, shortly following the dramatic IS advance into Iraq.
It was during this assault on Kobani that evidence emerged which appeared to point to the use by the Islamic State on at least one occasion of some kind of chemical agent against the Kurdish fighters of the YPG (Peoples’ Protection Units).
The July offensive commenced on July 2nd. According to Kurdish activists, the use of the chemical agent took place on July 12th, in the village of Avdiko, in the eastern part of the Kobani enclave (now in IS hands.) [i]
Nisan Ahmed, health minister of the Kurdish authority in Kobani, established a medical team to examine the incident. According to Ahmed, the bodies of three Kurdish fighters showed no signs of damage from bullets. Rather “burns and white spots on the bodies of the dead indicated the use of chemicals, which led to death without any visible wounds or external bleeding.” [ii]

Islamist Magazine Justifies Slavery
The latest edition of Dabliq has been released. In it, among other things, an article justifies slavery as being Islamic, warning that Muslims who reject it are apostates (page 17):
Before Shaytan reveals his doubts to the weak-minded and weak hearted, one should remember that enslaving the families of the kuffar and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Shari'ah that if one were to deny or mock, he would be denying or mocking the verses of the Qur'an and the narrations of the Prophet (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam), and thereby apostatizing from Islam.
Its sources are the Quran and the Hadiths. Yet Obama and other Western leaders insist what these neanderthal are doing is not Islamic.
Another article boasts that the weapons Obama is giving to Syrian rebels are being sold to ISIS (page 41):
[The FSA] have also repeatedly sold weaponry they received from Western and apostate donors for almost nothing to arms dealers. The Islamic State has bought a lot of this weaponry for appealingly cheap prices.
Obama is arming the enemy committing genocides and that our troops will eventually have to face.

HuffPo Muslim Contributor Strays From The PC Plantation
Ali Rizvi is a HuffPo contributor and a self proclaimed "atheist Muslim." That is, he isn't a Muslim in belief, he just enjoys the festivities associated with the Islamic faith. (In fairness, there are many 'atheist Christians' who are very much the same - they are not believers but still take part in Christian celebrations, such as Christmas or Easter.)
Rizvi writes an interesting, politically incorrect article on Islam that is wholly uncharacteristic to the HuffPo.
The ambassador answered us that [their right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.
The above passage is not a reference to a declaration by al Qaeda or some Iranian fatwa. They are the words of Thomas Jefferson, then the U.S. ambassador to France, reporting to Secretary of State John Jay a conversation he'd had with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, Tripoli's envoy to London, in 1786 -- more than two and a quarter centuries ago.
That is before al Qaeda and the Taliban, before the creation of Israel or the Arab-Israeli conflict, before Khomeini, before Saudi Arabia, before drones, before most Americans even knew what jihad or Islam was, and, most importantly, well before the United States had engaged in a single military incursion overseas or even had an established foreign policy.

Austrian Teen Girls Who Joined ISIS Get Exactly What They Expected
So its sad that these two teen girls wanted to go to Syria and make babies for Allah, they left everything behind and are now experiencing a case of Jihadist remorse.
The teenage girls who abandoned their families in Austria to become jihadis for ISIS feel they’ve made a terrible mistake by joining the barbaric lifestyle and they want to come home.I hate to break it to you girls, but you're so screwed, in more ways than one.
Samra Kesinovic, 17, and Sabina Selimovic, 15, are believed to be married, pregnant and living in the Islamic State-controlled city of Raqqa in northern Syria, Central European News reports.
Now Austrian media are reporting that Kesinovic and Selimovic have said enough is enough and want to return to their families, according to CEN.
But adult decisions do have adult consequences. Sad.
But look on the bright side, its a tradition of Muhammad not to behead them until the babies are weaned.

ISIS Claim That it Had Taken Kobane Seems Premature
Last night ISIS began using a hash saying it was in total control of Kobane Syria. The hash was quickly polluted. (looks innocent) but it seemed clear that Kobane was about to fall.
Today somehow, by the skin of their teeth the Kurds have held out yet another day.
ISIS apparently suffered heavy losses in urban fighting with YPG and PKK.
ISIS-fighter: "b. We lost some of our brothers in the fighting. c. Reinforcements on way from Raqqa to #Kobane." 2/2— Harald Doornbos (@HaraldDoornbos) October 9, 2014
The problem now for ISIS is that any large movement of reinforcements from Raqqa and other areas will be sitting ducks for US air power.
The problem for the Kurds is resupply as well. If they can get resupplied and ISIS can't bring in forces the tide may turn against ISIS. Handing them a very costly and humiliating defeat.
Lets pray for the Kurds and for ISIS defeat. The outcome is by no means certain. But Kurdish bravery and a little American air power have proven to be a bit more that ISIS and its supporters expected.
Now is ISIS stubborn enough to send even move forces into the meat grinder? We sure hope so.

Another Terror Raid in UK Nets Al-Muhajiroon Member Mizanur Rahman
ounter terrorism police have raided an “illegal” Islamic school in London suspected of having links to the banned Islamist group Al-Muhajiroon.Al-Muhajiroon is Anjem Choudary's group, after being banned by the UK they became Muslims Against Crusades, after that Total Assholes for ISIS or something like that.
Officers forcibly entered the Siddeeq Academy, reportedly an unlicensed tuition center, in the London borough of Tower Hamlets, as part of an ongoing counter-terror operation across London.
The raid comes as police arrested and raided the homes of four people in London, suspected of plotting a terrorist attack linked to the Islamist terror group Islamic State (also known as ISIS, or ISIL).
The police swoop, which took place last week, saw the arrest of Mizanur Rahman, a known Islamist radical who had been identified as the manager of Sideeq Academy.
In 2007, Rahman, who went by the Kunya (Islamic name) Abu Baraa, has previously called for Britain to become an Islamic state, and in 2007 was sentenced to four years in prison for inciting racial hatred and soliciting murder outside the Danish Embassy in London.
They follow Umar Bakri Muhammaed.
Here's a sample of his sermons in which he states that the Kuffar, that's you and me, just hate ISIS because its made of Muslims. Not because of ISIS' butchery and genocide.
Apparently Abu Baara was picked up in a prior raid, he is manager of the school that was closed but is currently on bail or something. But RT was the first outlet I've seen that names Mizanur Rahman as one of the targets.

Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, the patient with the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States and the Liberian man at the center of a widening public health scare, died in isolation at a hospital here on Wednesday, hospital authorities said.a former false report of his death, inspired some conspiracy theorists to speculate that he was, you know, the living dead already.
Mr. Duncan died at 7:51 a.m. at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, more than a week after the virus was detected in him on Sept. 30. His condition had worsened in recent days to critical from serious as medical personnel worked to support his fluid and electrolyte levels, crucial to recovery in a disease that causes bleeding, vomiting and diarrhea. Mr. Duncan was also treated with an experimental antiviral drug, brincidofovir, after the Food and Drug Administration approved its use on an emergency basis.
Its too bad he could not be saved even with experimental anti-viral treatment.
Our condolences go out to his family and we pray no one else comes down with this infection.

FBI Seeks Help Identifying ISIS Terrorist
I don't recognize this guy. But if you think you might have run across him on social media or elsewhere IRL please contact the FBI. Even if its just a hunch., You never know, your hunch might be right. Jawas are known for that kind of thing.
he FBI is asking for the public’s help identifying individuals who have traveled—or are planning to travel—overseas to engage in combat alongside terrorist organizations.Or if you're uncomfortable with that send the info to anyone on the contacts page and we'll do the rest.
“We need the public's assistance in identifying U.S. persons going to fight overseas with terrorist groups or who are returning home from fighting overseas,” said Michael Steinbach, assistant director of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Division.
A form for submitting potential tips and leads has been established at www.fbi.gov/ISILtips.
The FBI is also seeking information about the identity of an English-speaking individual and others seen in a propaganda video released last month by the group calling itself the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL.
In the video, a man whose face is obscured by a mask alternates seamlessly between English and Arabic in pro-ISIL pronouncements intended to appeal to a Western audience. Dressed in desert camouflage and wearing a shoulder holster, the masked man can be seen standing in front of purported prisoners as they dig their own graves and then later presiding over their executions.
The 55-minute video was released on September 19. In releasing a segment from the video, the FBI hopes someone might recognize the man through his voice and appearance. In the segment, the faces of purported prisoners are obscured and their executions are not shown.
“We’re hoping that someone might recognize this individual and provide us with key pieces of information,” Steinbach said. “No piece of information is too small.”

War Porn: Airstrike(s) Near Kobane
I'm not sure whose plane that is. But it does do some serious damage to an ISIS position.
All the previous US strikes were at night, so whomever you are. Nice shot.

Goatly Gets Competition or ISIS New Emir in Houston Sings Badly Very Very Badly (update :Vegas Baby!)
When it gets, you know tedious, skip ahead to around 6:00 where
even the cat protests, Meow = Dude! STFU!
The last time we spoke of this dude on the blog we linked a snopes article calling #houstonbahgdadi a hoax, or some sort of costume freak.
I think the term freak fits, but if its a hoax is the sort of hoax that is so dedicated it makes you question the sanity of said hoaxperson.
Some sources are telling me that not only is it not a hoax, the dude is seriously off his rocker.
It wouldn't be the first time the mentally challenged got caught up in the allure of the online Jihad, See Emerson Begolly aka Goatly. He is known to suffer from the Asperger's form of autism, Carlos Almonte the "Kill all Juice" guy suffers from just plain stupid.
So #Houstonbaghdadi has declared himself ISIS' Emir in Houston and he's been tossed out of every mosque he visits. And he spends endless hours singing Nasheeds to himself in front of the mirror. Um, yeah.
I know its surreal but we're going to go ahead and place him in the That Boy Ain't Right column for now. Lets hope his fascination with ISIS remains confined to Nasheeds in front of the mirror.
Updated 10/07/2014. It appears Mr. Bahgdadi has taken his show on the road, and who needs Dawa more than the filthy infidels of Sin City.

Turkey's End Game on Kobane
or the last few months Turkey has actively prevented Turkish Kurds from crossing the border to help defend Kobane. Even though Turkey is a nominal member of Obama’s grand anti-ISIS coalition it has done nothing to help Kobane except to allow refugees fleeing the city to cross the Turkish border.So what does Turkey have to gain at the expense of the Kurds?
Kurdish requests for heavy weapons have so far fallen on deaf ears, which means that the YPG fighters in Kobane are outgunned by the US tanks and Humvees that IS took from the Iraqi army in the summer.
What explains this passivity? For one thing, Turkey will not lift a finger to do anything that might encourage or empower the Kurds, and regards Kurdish national aspirations as a greater threat to its national security than ISIS. The YPG is the fighting wing of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the Syrian affiliate of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which the Turkish government regards as a terrorist organization, as does the US.
In a choice between IS and the YPG, Turkey clearly prefers the former.
The end game appears clear. Turkey will allow ISIS to become such a problem on its border AFTER the Kurds fail, then Turkey in the absence of any other power to push ISIS back will itself occupy the Kurdish areas in a ground invasion invoking its NATO membership to get support.
Telegraph: The president of Turkey has urged for ground troops to be deployed in Kobane as the key Syrian border town looks set to fall under the control of the Islamic State and of Iraq and the Levant (Isil).And the Kurds, who fight valiantly against ISIS, will get screwed over yet again.
The town has been under assault by Isil jihadists for more than three weeks and has become a focal point for the West's air strikes against the terrorist organisation.
On Monday, as fighting intensified around Kobane, the black flag of the Islamic State was seen flying from its buildings and a nearby hill, prompting fears that the town was about to fall under Isil control.
Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has since warned that a ground operation is needed to defeat the militants, fueling concerns that US-led air strikes are doing little to halt Isil's advances.
"The terror will not be over... unless we cooperate for a ground operation," president Erdogan said in a televised speech in the eastern city of Gaziantep, adding that air strikes were not enough on their own.
Turkey on the one hand will seek a Hudna with ISIS once it feels it has occupied a healthy buffer zone, while on the other hand claim it has saved the day for NATO.
ISIS' smuggled oil will still flow through Turkey and Syria.
It works out in everyone's interest, well except for the Kurds who will die to justify Turkeys actions and the US & Western powers who will be extorted to pay for the Turk's help.
*Look American's just don't think and/or act dirty enough to play in the ME. We just don't.
*I'm glad for that really. I don't want to live in a place like that. But we pay a heavy price for our naivete.

Currently, you can purchase the authentic replica jersey for $100. The Cincinnati Bengals with donate 100% of the proceeds to pediatric cancer research at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. But hurry, purchases after October 20th will not be donated.
Clueless In Washington, DC
FBI Director Comey said Islamic terrorists are working to attack America:
In an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS' "60 Minutes," Comey said the militants were "working and, you know, may still be working on an effort to attack the United States or our allies, and looking to do it very, very soon."
Senior U.S. officials have not said whether the group's plots have been disrupted.
Comey said the U.S. believes there are about a dozen Americans fighting alongside extremist groups in Syria. (Source)
Meanwhile, presumably in the same interview, Comey says U.S. citizens with a valid passport are entitled to return to America, even after joining and fighting with terrorist groups:
Female Kurd Soldier Sacrifices Self To Defend Kobane
Any woman ISIS captures becomes a slave. She is horribly tortured and abused.
This Kurd woman, Arin Mirkan, decided to die fighting than allow herself to be captured.
A female Kurdish commander in the embattled city of Kobane in Syrian Kurdistan killed an unknown number of Islamic State (ISIS) fighters in a suicide attack on Sunday.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the woman, who was from a unit of the People's Protection Units (YPG), broke into an ISIS bastion around the eastern outskirts of Kobane, or Ayn al-Arab in Arabic.
She clashed with enemy fighters, fired grenades and then detonated herself with a grenade.
Another young woman also decided to kill herself than to face capture by ISIS:
A Syrian Kurdish female combatant, who appeared on a BBC report in September, shot herself with a last bullet during fighting with militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) last week, according to media reports.
Ceylan Ozalp, 19, was reportedly surrounded by ISIS fighters near the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobane also known as Ain al-Arab. After she run out of ammunition Ozalp said "goodbye" over the radio and spent her last bullet on killing herself.
Ozalp was featured in this BBC report. She is the one speaking (via translator) at the 1:00 minute mark:
One of these Kurd women are worth much more than a hundred ISIS. They are worth more than all of these Islamic terrorists put together.
UPDATE: There are some conflicting reports about Ceylan Ozalp. She may still be alive. That's great news for Kurds, but not so much for ISIS, as she is reputed to be a fierce fighter. (Thanks, Paxreseda!)

(Note: there seems to be some confusion about these two brave women. The same picture is being circulated for both. However, the stories are being reported as separate incidences.)
Obama Administration Spends More Time Naming Conflict Than At Intelligence Meetings
And we wonder why Obama never learns about security issues until he reads it in his morning newspaper. Because he and his administration spend more time trying to spin his
fuck-ups failures than to actually lead this country.
After nearly two months of conducting airstrikes over Iraq and Syria, the Pentagon is being pressured to answer a basic question: What are they calling this war? [...]
The debate over what to call this war follows a debate over whether to call the airstrikes a war at all. Secretary of State John Kerry initially was reluctant to do so, but U.S. officials eventually conceded that it is a "war" in the same way the U.S. has been at war with Al Qaeda and its affiliates.
Now, the absence of any name for the mission is becoming just as perplexing.
Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby was pressed about the mission name following a report in The Wall Street Journal late last week, which quoted an anonymous Defense official who offered his own explanation. "If you name it, you own it," he told the Wall Street Journal. "And they don't want to own it." (Source)
Kurds Beg West For Help; Obama Ignores Pleas
These people have been making a last stand at Kobane for weeks. ISIS has them surrounded. The few airstrikes Obama approved have been ineffective.
Now the city is falling to ISIS.
NEW YORK - Kurdish-American campaigners are pressuring the US Government to better support embattled Syrian Kurds in Kobane, where Islamic State (IS) fighters are making gains against the holdouts.
Kurdish-Americans across the US have appealed to Senators to boost support for Syrian Kurds who are defending Kobane -- a Kurdish town near the Syria-Turkey border -- from IS, the sectarian Sunni militia that is also known as ISIS and ISIL.
"Kobane has been surrounded for almost two weeks; the latest reports indicate that the city is under heavy bombardment and parts of the city may have fallen," says a campaign letter that has circulated among hundreds of Kurdish-Americans.
"If democratic nations fail to provide immediate military support to Kurdish fighters, Kobane will suffer the same tragic fate as Shingal," it adds, referring to the massacres of Christian minorities in Iraq this summer.
Their blood is on Obama's hands.

It Was A Mistake When Obama Said 'Make No Mistake"
I really think it's gotten to the point where Obama can say anything he wants and nobody really believes him anymore.
Former White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod said on Sunday it was a mistake for President Barack Obama to say that his policies are on the ballot this fall.
Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," Axelrod said that if he were still an Obama adviser he would not have included the line in the president's speech last week in which Obama said: "I'm not on the ballot this fall... but make no mistake, these policies are on the ballot -- every single one of them."
"It was a mistake," Axelrod said. (Source)

ISIS Murders British Hostage Allan Henning
Jawa Report can confirm that British hostage Allan Henning has been murdered by the Islamic State in revenge for this week's vote in Parliament approving strikes against ISIS.
The tape comes within hours of reports of coalition airstrikes against ISIS in support of Kurds besieged in Kobane.
An American Peter Edward Kassig is shown at the end and is threatened with death.
The murder is carried out by the same Jihadi John.
The blood of Davbid Haines is on your hands Cameron.Update: Some background on Henning.
Alan Henning will also be slaughtered, but his blood in on the hands of the British Parliament.
(continues) Obama, you have started your ariel bombardment in Sham(Syria) which strikes our people, so its only right that we strike the necks of your people.
The wife of British hostage Alan Henning pleaded Saturday with ISIS to release him, describing her husband as a "peaceful, selfless man" who was only in Syria to help people in need.May he rest in peace and our prayers are with Mrs Henning and his family. May the Lord keep him and comfort his family
"I cannot see how it could assist any state's cause to allow the world to see a man like Alan dying," Barbara Henning said, according to a message released by the UK Foreign Office. ISIS refers to itself as "the Islamic State."
Alan Henning, a taxi driver from near Manchester, England, was part of a team of volunteers that traveled to Syria in December to deliver food and water to people affected by the Middle Eastern country's devastating civil war.
He was abducted the day after Christmas by masked gunmen, according to other people in the aid convoy
And let the UK know what we stand with them.
Um yeah that was me.
Kurds In Kobane Still Standing
A BBC correspondent across the border in Turkey saw explosions and smoke rising from buildings hit by shells.
IS has moved to within a few kilometres of the town despite US-led air strikes seeking to halt its two-week offensive.
On Thursday, Turkey's prime minister promised it would do whatever it could to prevent the fall of Kobane.
Ahmet Davutoglu spoke only hours after the Turkish parliament authorised military operations against militants in Iraq and Syria who threaten Turkey's security, and for foreign troops to use Turkish bases.
If Turkey is going to allow it we need to get some tank killers and AC-130's to support Kobane PDQ.
We must help these people stand against ISIS.
There are reports that ISIS is currently trying to enter the southern portion of the city, and may have taken some houses.
The situation is very fluid and there's a lot of information pollution on both sides.
Update: Live feed here.
Update: Apparently that is an ISIS tank burning near the cell towers. I'm not sure what happened as I was busy.
Update resident says no. ISIS shelled a building there.

The US State Department last week singled him out as one of 10 wanted "foreign terrorist fighters", describing him as "a Syria-based French extremist and ISIL member" -- using an alternative name for IS -- as well as an executioner.

Kurd Hero Takes Out ISIS Tank & Crew
US airstrikes are ineffective; desperate Kurdish soldiers are the new heroes in the fight against Islamic terrorism:
American air strikes have done little to dislodge Isis fighters trying to take a major Kurdish city on the Turkish border, Kurdish fighters and commanders have said. They described the desperate battle to stop the Isis advance on Kobane which shelters a population of at least 200,000.
One described how a friend stopped an Isis assault by dropping a bomb through a tank hatch, killing himself as well. "He just couldn't take seeing the tanks bombing the village and killing so many people," said a young fighter of the People's Protection Units (YPG), "He ran forward, opened the top and held the bomb while it exploded the tank."
Blood still seeping through his bandage with metal pins securing his crushed lower leg, the injured fighter described how his battalion fought Isis militants who appeared to be high on drugs in the village of Tel Gazal in Kobane province on Tuesday: "We retreated into the village and hid to set an ambush when they attacked. They came with 10 cars with heavy machine guns strapped on top and four tanks."
The article goes on to describe how Obama's ineffective ISIS strategy doesn't include the YPG, who have been fighting ISIS on the ground for more than a year. Outnumbered and outgunned, these Kurds are ready to fight to very end.

ISIS War Crimes in Staggering Detail
So its not really shocking news since ISIS not only commits genocide, but openly celebrates and displays those crimes in videos for the world to see.
Whereas the complaints in the UN report about Iraqi security forces and others fighting ISIS are all about collateral damage.
NPR: A United Nations report out today lists what it describes as a "staggering array" of possible war crimes and crimes against humanity by the self-declared Islamic State in Iraq, including mass executions, the kidnapping of women and girls to use as sex slaves and the use of child soldiers.In one incident ISIS murdered over 1500 Iraqi Security forces in one day. The report also speaks of the public beheading of three female nurses who refused to treat ISIS fighters.
It also points to shelling and airstrikes by Iraqi security forces that killed civilians and "may have violated the principles of distinction and proportionality under international humanitarian law."
The office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights says the report is based on interviews of some 500 witnesses, who related "apparent systematic and widespread" human rights abuses by the extremist group also known as ISIS or ISIL.
The report said Islamic State and affiliated groups had committed violent acts of an "increasing sectarian nature" against Christians, Yazidis, Shiite Muslims and others.
"These include attacks directly targeting civilians and civilian infrastructure, executions and other targeted killings of civilians, abductions, rape and other forms of sexual and physical violence perpetrated against women and children, forced recruitment of children, destruction or desecration of places of religious or cultural significance, wanton destruction and looting of property, and denial of fundamental freedoms," the report says.

US Man Goes To Fight With The Yazidis
The Yazidis have endured horrible human rights abuses at the hands of the Islamic State. Women and children have been raped, tortured, and sold into slavery. But despite the horrors they have endured, they are fighting back.
And now, they are getting some help from Americans.
A US citizen, Jordan Matson, has joined the YPG ranks in order to fight against ISIS gangs, receiving the code-name "Serdar".
Matson was slightly injured when a mortar shell landed near him in a clash in which 8 ISIS gang members were killed. Matson says he is very content with the attention he receives in the YPG. US citizen from Wisconsin has joined the YPG ranks, which already includes many people from different ethnic groups in Syria and the Middle East in general.
'I involved in the struggle with my unit for a week'
Matson says he had informed himself about the struggle of the YPG against the ISIS gangs through the internet in recent times, although he already had information about the Kurdish people. Matson says he decided to join the YPG as he preferred to do something rather than nothing. Matson says the YPG is a bigger organisation than he previously thought it to be and adds that he is happy that he has gained acceptance so quickly in the YPG. Matson says he has been involved in the struggle with his unit for a week, adding that he has started to learn Kurdish.
We hear every day about western Muslims traveling to join terrorists, so it's nice to see this brave young man going to fight against those Islamic Savages.

Iran Hangs Mohsen Amir Aslani
Iranian Authorities added a charge of rape to the list that included heresy, insulting Prophet Jonah and immoral acts just so they could hang him.
Now let hold on for a minute. Try to consider this. In western Christian society its no longer acceptable to call someone a Heretic or an Apostate simply because they don't adhere so some state approved doctrine. Its considered an insult.
But every day we accept the derogatory, or racist term, Kaffir or Kufr from Muslims describing non-Muslims, People of the Book (Christians and Jews) and other non-believers in Islam.
Why do we accept less from the followers of Islam? Why do we pay once ounce of respect to a system that not only executes people for making free choices about their religion but also treats those outside of it as a second class "race" for lack of a better term. If being against Islam is "racist" then can adhering to the more fundamental teachings of Islamic radicals be any less racist.
For those of you who will say, "Islam is not a race." True, but neither was Catholic a race during the darker periods of Inquisition. We no longer accept that, neither should we accept the exact same kind of behavior from Islam.
We could coin a new term such as religionist, but it doesn't have the same negative connotation as racist.
So yes Virginia, Islam is RACIST against the Kuffar, Kuft, Kaffir. No matter how you spell it the term is bigotry and unacceptable in a *civilized world.
*The Arab world, in case you haven't noticed, is not very civilized.

ISIS Attacks Civilian School in Homs Behead Kurdish Women
The bombs went off in the city of Homs, in a neighborhood dominated by minority Alawities, a Shiite offshoot sect that President Bashar Assad also belongs to. It was one of the deadliest strikes to hit the government-controlled area in months.Well so much for ISIS claim that they don't attack civilians.
The blasts occurred just as the children were leaving at the end of class at the Ekremah al-Makhzoumi elementary school, according to an official with the Homs governorate.
A Syrian pro-government channel aired a brief footage of the aftermath, showing distraught parents rushing about frantically looking for their children, amid strewn schoolbags and blood stains on the ground. Black flames rose from a car nearby.
The other big news is that ISIS captured some Kurdish fighters near Kobane and beheaded them all including three women.
Sabirhan Hasanoff Appeals His Conviction
He's not saying he didn't want to kill infidels at the NY Stock Exchange, just that the part about him saying he wanted to bomb the NY Stock Exchange should be thrown out.
An Al Qaeda wannabe raised in New York City appealed his conviction Tuesday, arguing his lawyer failed to challenge government evidence obtained through NSA spying.Probably his lawyer refused because he knew there would be both a FISA warrant and a subsequent search warrant produced by the prosecution.
Sabirhan Hasanoff claimed he received ineffective counsel prior to his sentence of 18 years behind bars for providing support to Al Qaeda.
“I repeatedly requested attorney (Joshua) Dratel to move to suppress the warrantless wiretapping as it related to my, and my alleged ‘plot’ to bomb the New York Stock Exchange,” Hasanoff wrote in the motion filed in Manhattan Federal Court. “Dratel refused to challenge that warrantless eavesdropping, and I had no choice but to plead guilty.”
Anyway what a Murtad, This little 18 year stretch in Federal Prison is a simply a test from Allah. A real Mujahideen would embrace his sentence as like a total blessing.
Afghan Soldiers Who Went AWOL To Canada Seeking Asylum Are Total Islamophobes
These soldiers fear that if they return to Afghanistan the government might fall and/or
the Taliban will cut their heads off. That's just crazy.
They watched a YouTube video to find the best way to cross the border into Canada. They made their getaway during a group outing to Walmart. And they spent more than $1,600 on taxis to travel from Cape Cod to a border checkpoint in Niagara Falls — just steps away, they hoped, from asylum and a new life.Well that certainly is between a rock and a hard place. If Obama lets them stay, he is admitting the Taliban is still dangerous. If he sends them home, he sends men who have served with us, for us he quite possibly is sending them to their death.
The three Afghan soldiers who fled a training exercise on Camp Edwards last month never made it past the famed Rainbow Bridge to Canada. Instead, they are fighting deportation from a US immigration jail in this town surrounded by cornfields and cabbage patches — and on Tuesday, explained for the first time why they disappeared.
To send them back to the Afghan army, they say, would be to give them a death sentence. Family members of two soldiers have reported recent death threats. The men fear that if they return, they could be the victim of a Taliban assassin’s bullet.
“They catch us, they kill us,” Major Jan Arash, a slight 48-year-old man with thinning hair, said of the Taliban. “They tip those who kill us.”
The soldiers said the Taliban are targeting them for fighting alongside the Americans, and they are constantly dodging sniper fire for $400 to $500 a month in pay and little protection.
They sought asylum in Canada because they figured it was more likely to grant them protection than the United States.
“For me is not important, Canada or America,” he said. “I need just asylum.”
I for one would grant them Asylum, because being kind of a phobe myself, I think their fears that Taliban might chop off their heads is justified.
