National Post Recommends Converting To Islam To Avoid Islamic Terrorism
I can understand the intent of the author. If the ability to recite a few lines of the Islamic declaration of faith saves your life, why not? Just because you say it, doesn't mean you must believe it.
On the other hand, spiritual and moral consequences aside, will capitulating to religious terrorists really make us any safer?
To weed the Muslims out from the infidels, terrorists asked people to recite the shahadah to prove their faith. They asked other things too, like certain key passages of the Koran, the name of Mohammad's mother, that sort of thing - it was al-Qaeda Question Hour. The wrong answer meant death.
After that, many, myself included, wondered: Should we - Muslim or not - learn the basics of Islam and have a read through the Koran? If one of us ever finds herself in a situation similar to that of Westgate Mall victims, could even a rudimentary knowledge of Islam save us?
(Hat Tip: Jihad Watch)
Islam gives the kufar three choices during jihad: convert, submit, or die. If you convert under duress, isn't that the same as submitting? So, it really boils down to this - would you rather live on your knees or die standing?
I doubt any of us can definitively know what we would do while under attack by terrorists. How difficult would it be to recite a few words if you had a knife to your throat?

Noted Hamas Supporters to Raise Money for "Gaza Victims" at Six Flags Magic Mountain, LA
Let's go to Six Flags Magic Mountain, LA this weekend. What could possibly go wrong?
In August 2006, Jamaat-e-Islami said it dispatched a delegation from its Al-Khidmat Foundation to deliver a “special message” as well as about $100,000 to a senior Hamas leader. At that time, the Al-Khidmat Foundation’s top two donors were ICNA Relief USA and ICNA Relief Canada. A third ICNA charity, Helping Hand, was also listed as a donor. Notably, the website of ICNA’s Southeast Zone linked to the websites of Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist groups until November 2002, over a year after the 9/11 attacks. The website also promoted a Hamas front, the Islamic Society in Gaza, as a charity.
A 1989, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Financial Committee document instructs participants to contact “all the Islamic centers and groups in the field,” naming ICNA as one of them.

Islamophobe Tells Muslims if they don't like West, Go Home!
Mudahr Zahran has this to say about his fellow Muslim immigrants in the West:
As a practicing Muslim living in Europe, I could not help asking myself: Why do we Muslims -- or at least a good number of us -- choose to provoke the countries that open their doors to us?Growing up in the 'burbs of LA we had a saying: Welcome to California, now go home.
How come we manage to intermediate Western societies we live in, whether Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the UK, France, Canada or the United States?
Those of us who do not wish to live in the secular West -- why did we go there in the first place?
If secular Western countries are evil and immoral in the view of some Muslims, why don't those who feel that way leave and relocate in Islamist states such Iran or Afghanistan?

Spain to Deport Refugee for Blasphemy
The short of it: Guy leaves Islam, guy gets death threats from ROP, guy flees to Spain, guy makes video, Spain gets death threats, Spain deports guy.
The Spanish Supreme Court has ruled that a political refugee should be deported because his criticism of Islam poses "a danger to the security of Spain."When the victim is punished for the sins of his attackers, something is seriously wrong with your society.
The May 30 ruling, which upholds an earlier decision by a lower court to revoke the refugee status of a Pakistani ex-Muslim named Imran Firasat, showcases how the fear of Muslim rage continues to threaten the exercise of free speech in Europe....
Fernández issued an order on December 21, 2012 to deport Firasat based on Article 44 of the Law on Asylum and Protection, which allows the state to revoke the refugee status of "persons who constitute a threat to Spanish security." The deportation order stated that Firasat constituted a "persistent source of problems due to his constant threats against the Koran and Islam in general."

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's Brandeis Speech
Here's what Ayaan Hirsi Ali planned to say at Brandeis University, had they not cowed to CAIR:
One year ago, the city and suburbs of Boston were still in mourning. Families who only weeks earlier had children and siblings to hug were left with only photographs and memories. Still others were hovering over bedsides, watching as young men, women, and children endured painful surgeries and permanent disfiguration. All because two brothers, radicalized by jihadist websites, decided to place homemade bombs in backpacks near the finish line of one of the most prominent events in American sports, the Boston Marathon.
All of you in the Class of 2014 will never forget that day and the days that followed. You will never forget when you heard the news, where you were, or what you were doing. And when you return here, 10, 15 or 25 years from now, you will be reminded of it. The bombs exploded just 10 miles from this campus.
I read an article recently that said many adults don't remember much from before the age of 8. That means some of your earliest childhood memories may well be of that September morning simply known as "9/11."
You deserve better memories than 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing.
Her very last comments in the speech (not included above) are the real kicker.

BBC Censors 'Offensive' Song Lyrics
The BBC forces singer to change lyrics containing the word "Jesus":
BBC management banned singer Eliza Doolittle from using the word 'Jesus' in a performance of her love song 'Walking on Water'. She was forced to change the lyric from "Sometimes I wish I was Jesus, I'd get my Air Max on and run across the sea for you" to "Sometimes I wish it was easy..." when she appeared on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Radio 2.
The Islamic BBC doesn't give a crap about Christians or their sensitivities. While they may be pretending to protect all religious figures equally, I have no doubt their real agenda is to further prop the defense of Muhammad. Their ultimate goal is to protect Islamic sensibilities, even if they have to put on a guise protecting other religions.
not so innocent lyrics has happened before, of course. Try and guess which offensive lyrics The Ed Sullivan show attempted to ban during this 1967 performance:
45 - 50 years ago drugs and sexual gyrations were taboo. Hell, even into the 70's television programs refused to show toilets or double beds in their programs. Today, the word "Jesus" is offensive.
How far we have come.

Irony: Lesbian Police Chief Wears Hijab in Show of Cross-Cultural Solidarity
LOL, I really hope the future we keep liberals around. You know, so they can entertain us with their stupidity:
Muslim employees at Minneapolis City Hall recently declared "Hijab Day" in the workplace and convinced non-Muslim co-workers to don the Muslim head covering, including the city's police chief, Janeé Harteau, who is well known as a homosexual.Chief Harteau ought to go to any country where women commonly wear the hijab and take her "wife" with her and see just how mutual this "cross-cultural understanding" really is.
Female Muslim employees at the government building declared February 28 to be "Hijab Day" then systematically convinced nearly every female employee at work to don the traditional headwear to pose for pictures which were later posted to Facebook....
Interestingly, Omar and her other Muslim co-workers convinced Police Chief Janeé Harteau to don a hijab, too. Last August, Harteau was celebrated by the Minneapolis Star Tribune for having married her "favorite sergeant," Holly Keegel.

What difference, at this point, does it make?
Cankle's biggest regret during her tenure as SecState? Benghazi.
“My biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi,” Clinton said when asked to identify “do-overs” of her time as America’s top diplomat during her keynote appearance before the the National Automobile Dealers Association in New Orleans.
Well, bless her heart. Except it's way too little and way too late for regrets or apologies. Especially after sticking to the phony "the offensive video did it" defense.
Sorry, dear, but the only things that are fitting for you are shackles.

DOJ Says Will No Longer 'Profile' Muslims
Of course most Muslims aren't terrorists. But most terrorists are Muslims. It's simply a matter of resource management. If you pretend that all people are equally likely to be bad, then you will inevetably spend your valuable time looking at the innocent. Which means the bad guys are under less scrutiny. Which means more crime, or in this case more terrorism.
That the Eric Holder's DOJ is insanely politically correct to the point of a death wish is the bad news. The good news is that since this is so clearly insane, very few people in law enforcement will do anything more than give lip service to the policy:
President Obama's Department of Justice wants to "expand its definition of racial profiling" so that federal agents will no longer be able to consider religion, national origin, or gender/sexual orientation in their investigations...That's funny: since when did being gay or being Muslim constitute a race?
ACLU national security attorney Hina Shamsi praised the proposed changes, saying: "Putting an end to [these profiling techniques] not only comports with the Constitution, it would put real teeth to the F.B.I.'s claims that it wants better relationships with minorities."

State Department Lists Benghazi Attackers as "Terrorists", Nullifying Earlier Stance that the Attack was Caused by 1st Ammendment Expression
Now that the State Department has officially listed some of those involved in the attack which killed Ambassador Stevens, does that mean that it is now the White House's official stance that the attack was the work of terrorists? And if so, are they now going to apologize for the way in which they misled the American public?
Don't. Hold. Your. Breath:
The Department of State has announced the designations of Ansar al-Shari’a in Benghazi, Ansar al-Shari’a in Darnah, and Ansar al-Shari’a in Tunisia as separate Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act and as Specially Designated Global Terrorist entities under section 1(b) of Executive Order (E.O.) 13224. In addition to these group designations, the Department of State has also designated Ahmed Abu Khattalah, Sufian bin Qumu, and Seifallah Ben Hassine, commonly known as “Abou Iyadh,” as Specially Designated Global Terrorists under E.O. 13224. The consequences of the FTO and E.O. 13224 designations include a prohibition against knowingly providing, or attempting or conspiring to provide, material support or resources to, or engaging in transactions with these organizations, and the freezing of all property and interests in property of the organization and individuals that are in the United States, or come within the United States or the control of U.S. persons. The Department of State took these actions in consultation with the Departments of Justice and Treasury.Expect a full fledged Sunday New York Times article this weekend "debunking" the myth that terrorists were involved in the Benghazi attack. If you read the earlier Times piece, it was really a semantics argument about what "al Qaeda" means. As if it was just as misleading for some Republicans to claim that it was al Qaeda that was behind the attack as it was for the administration to claim that the attack wasn't the work of terrorists.
Created separately after the fall of the Qadhafi regime, Ansar al-Shari’a in Benghazi and Ansar al-Shari’a in Darnah have been involved in terrorist attacks against civilian targets, frequent assassinations, and attempted assassinations of security officials and political actors in eastern Libya, and the September 11, 2012 attacks against the U.S. Special Mission and Annex in Benghazi, Libya. Members of both organizations continue to pose a threat to U.S. interests in Libya. Ahmed Abu Khattalah is a senior leader of Ansar al-Shari’a in Benghazi and Sufian bin Qumu is the leader of Ansar al-Shari’a in Darnah.
Founded by Seifallah Ben Hassine in early 2011, Ansar al-Shari’a in Tunisia was involved in the September 14, 2012 attack against the U.S. Embassy and American school in Tunis, which put the lives of over one hundred United States employees in the Embassy at risk. The Tunisian government has declared Ansar al-Shari’a in Tunisia a terrorist organization, and the group has been implicated in attacks against Tunisian security forces, assassinations of Tunisian political figures, and attempted suicide bombings of locations that tourists frequent. Ansar al-Shari’a in Tunisia, which is ideologically aligned with al-Qa’ida and tied to its affiliates, including AQIM, represents the greatest threat to U.S. interests in Tunisia.
The U.S. Government is committed to taking all appropriate actions against the organizations and individuals responsible for the attacks against the U.S. diplomatic facilities in Libya and Tunisia. We remain committed to working with the Libyan government to bring the perpetrators of the September 11, 2012, Benghazi attacks to justice and to ensure the safety of our personnel serving overseas. Likewise, we continue to urge the Tunisian government to bring to justice those responsible for the September 14, 2012 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Tunis.
Today, the Department of State updated its Rewards for Justice website (www.rewardsforjustice.net) to include a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the arrest or conviction of any individual responsible for the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks.
Except that the White House intentionally misled the public, while those claiming that it was al Qaeda are only wrong in the most literal academic sense. Okay, so it wasn't al Qaeda proper. Instead, it was a local Salaafi Islamist group staffed and led by former members of al Qaeda and who have the same goals and methods as al Qaeda.
So, yes Poindexter, you are correct: it wasn't "al Qaeda". It was "Ansar al-Shariah". Thank you for the lesson on organizational boundaries.
But trying to equivocate outright lies by Obama and Hillary Clinton in an attempt to spin a narrative which would be helpful politically in an election year with simple semantic mistakes is meaningful only in the most academic sense, and is itself misleading. And since I'm pretty sure that the ediorial staff at the NYTimes is fairly educated then I can only surmise that their obfuscation is intentional.
Yeah, it's not news that the NYTimes is a partisan rag. But it's a sophistaced partisan rag, so that's okay then.
Thanks to Laura.

Congressional Dems. Invite Spokesman for Designated Terror Group to Brief them on "Drone Strikes"
Luckily the guy was denied a visa, but doesn't the fact that Congressional Democrats invited a guy who is a spokesman for an al Qaeda-like group say volumes about them?
Then again, who would no more about drone strikes than al Qaeda?
Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based NGO Al Karama, was expected to brief Reps. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) the morning of the Nov. 19, according to press release from Grayson’s office.The Democratic Congresscritters when asked why they invited a guy who works for a designated terrorist organization to come tesitfy on Capital Hill, plead ignorance. Which if you think about it kind of sums their existence up quite nicely.
Ahmady, who also serves as a top official in an al Qaeda-linked Yemeni political party, did not attend because of visa issues. The State Department said it could not comment on visa matters.
Several Al Karama officials have faced terrorism allegations. Al Karama’s founder and current president Abdul Rahman Naimi was designated as a terrorist and al Qaeda supporter by the U.S. Treasury Department in December, along with the group’s Yemen representative Abdulwahab Al-Humayqani. Al Karama’s legal director, Rachid Mesli, is currently wanted for terrorism charges in Algeria.

Terror Supporting Pres. of SFSU General Union of Palestinian Students Also Keen on Stabbing Israelis
I'm guessing this guy is a Tea Partier
The fact that SFSU hasn't and won't do anything just goes to show that most of what passes for cultural sensitivity is just slang for we don't believe brown people are as morally accountable as white people. It's not even the soft bigotry of low expectations, it's the hard bigotry of believing Muslims don't have it in them to act in a civilized manner and therefore we'll treat them like children. Or retards.
And yes, this guy does support terrorism. The last time I checked, Hamas is a terrorist organization and it looks like he has fond feelings for them.
And the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, also a terrorist organization.
Background here. Someone do me a favor and let me know if SFSU actually does anything about this guy or the Palestinian student organization he leads.

Remember, the NSA didn't even actually leak the info on these so-called "activists". They only considered it a possibility.

FBI Censors Consider Quran too "Offensive" to Present in Counter Terror Training
I actually took the time and looked at the whole document which shows various slides from powerpoint presentations that were purged from FBI counterterror training because they were deemed "offensive". Most of the censored images and slides were pretty milquetoast, there's no way any one outside a university sociology department gets offended by these.
Other slides are offensive, but obviously intentionally so that the audience will see what bigoted statements/images/stereotypes look like. One such slide shows Yosemite Sam as an Arab in a classic Bugs Bunny cartoon but the intent of the slide is obvious as it's labelled "Biases and Perception".
So, not only are the PC warriors eager to suppress speech deemed unpopular, they are also too stupid to realize when such "offensive" speech is being used in support of their preferred position.
But it gets worse then that. In an effort to show that Islam has no more of a violent streak than any other religion they .... censor slides simply quoting from the Quran.
It takes a lot of chutzpah to censor counter terror training in the name of cultural sensitivity while at the same time claiming that the Quran can't be used in such training because it is inherently offensive to the sensibilities of ..... Muslims.
You can't read the Quran. It might give you the wrong idea about Islam!
I'm not saying that the above quotation from the Quran is the guiding principle for all Muslims. No more than quoting Jesus' "turn the other cheek" would ever be taken as the controlling verse for most Christians.
But if one were studying Christian pacifism of course one would have to look at Bible versus that could be read as pacific! The same is true of Islamist terror: it didn't come out of nowhere. It has a history. It has a context. And that context is Islam.
If the FBI wants its agents to understand Islamist terror of course they must understand Quranic versus which could be read as condoning violence in the name of God. Not because this is what Western bigots say about Islam, but because it is what some Muslims say to each other about Islam. The jihadi mindset is steeped in Quranic readings and traditions.
I'm not saying that the jihadis represent true Islam, only that they themselves claim to be the true followers of Islam. If we don't know what the enemy believes, then how can we identify who the enemy are? And if we don't know who the enemy are, then how can we fight them.
In any event, the Washington Examiner story is here and from that link you can download the PDF file documenting the FBI's censorship efforts.
I just found the whole thing both disgusting and deliciously ironic so I had to comment on it.
PS -- I'm closing the comments on this post because I know a bunch of you are going to spout off on how terrorists are just good Muslims doing what Allah tells them to do. This from Catholics who are convinced they represent "real" Christianity, or from Evangelicals who think their version of Christianity is the "authentic" one. Which is to say it's not up to me to judge what "real" Islam is or isn't.

MEMRI YouTube Account Suspended
YouTube is claiming that the Middle East Media Research Institute's YouTube account was suspended for multiple "copyright violations". Clearly MEMRI was within their fair use rights to post video from Arab TV stations calling for the annihilation of Jews, support of terrorism, and general buffoonery since. You can legally post portions of copyrighted media for news reporting and political criticism, which clearly MEMRI is engaged in.
But I think we know the real reason YouTube yanked MEMRI's YouTube channel: followers of the religion of the perpetually outraged complained.
Don't make them angry. You wouldn't like them when they're angry.
Here's a screenshot:

Rand Paul: Cut Off Aid to Countries that Persecute Christians
It's one of those obvious ideas that should be a no brainer but which will go nowhere because ... not giving money to Muslim countries is racist or something:
"We spend over a million dollars to Pakistan. There is a (Christian) woman on death row for blasphemy. She said she drew water from a Muslim well and they beat her and charged her with blaspheming. She said she just tried to drink from a Muslim's well. The president shouldn't send money. No more money to countries killing Christians, period."Yeah, I'm pretty sure he meant we spend over a billion dollars to Pakistan, not millions, but you get the idea.
I'd go further than this and cut off religious visas to people from countries which didn't offer reciprocity. In other words, no more Saudi clerics coming to the US so long as Saudi Arabia doesn't allow US clerics over there.
Thanks to Lou.

Soldiers Being Told that Tea Party is Threat to Nation
I can't speak to the authenticity of soldiers reporting that they were told that the American Family Association (AFA) and Tea Party were "extremist" or "threatening to tear the nation apart". What I can say is that a lot of this kind of training relies on information from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) which used to be a reliable source, but over the past 3 or 4 years has started listing groups actively opposing gay marriage as "hate groups". They also listed the American Family Association as a "hate group" which it obviously isn't.
I do doubt any one was told they'd be disciplined for donating to the AFA, evangelical churches, or Tea Party, but it is believable that they were labeled "hate groups" or something along those lines since a lot of this kind of training relies on unreliable sources like the SPLC.
Soldiers attending a pre-deployment briefing at Fort Hood say they were told that evangelical Christians and members of the Tea Party were a threat to the nation and that any soldier donating to those groups would be subjected to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.Then again, people say stupid things and soldiers are, after all is said and done, still people.
A soldier who attended the Oct. 17th briefing told me the counter-intelligence agent in charge of the meeting spent nearly a half hour discussing how evangelical Christians and groups like the American Family Association were “tearing the country apart.”
Michael Berry, an attorney with the Liberty Institute, is advising the soldier and has launched an investigation into the incident.
I guess the thing I'm supposed to get angry about was that this all took place at Fort Hood, the same location that the worst terror attack on the homeland since 9/11 occurred. That on the grounds that an Islamist extremists murdered my fellow citizens I should get pissed off that some guy is saying that Christians and Tea Partiers are the real problem.
Okay, I'm a little mad, but not that much. I try to reserve my righteous indignation for people like Nidal Hasan who actually committed murder, rather than some idiot who said something stupid about his political opponents.

Islamophobe on Capital Hill Compares Islam's Peaceful Inner Struggle with Racist, Xenophobic, Teabaggers
Tea Partiers Plot Jihad on American Health Care!
Muslims everywhere take umbrage to Democrat George Miller comparing the peaceful inner struggle of jihad with unpatriotic, terrorist, tea-baggers!
"When you were on the jihad against Americans' access to health care, shutting down the parks wasn't a problem. Shutting down NIH wasn't a problem."Or, maybe I'm wrong? Maybe Miller is saying shutting down the government is good? Good like the peaceful inner struggle of jihad.
I don't know, I'm kind of confused. I thought we weren't allowed to use the word jihad unless it was something positive? You know, like I jihad dirka dirka Muhammad jihad you.

Nation Completely Unstunned that Terror Fundraising Front CAIR Receives Most $ From Overseas (WTF Update!)
I'll take this breathless moment of unshock to consider how I will continue living my life normally after learning nothing whatsoever about the SOB's over at CAIR:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) conceals donations from overseas through a series of shell organizations, according to documents from court actions involving the Muslim advocacy group....I was also completely unstunned to learn that the largest donor to CAIR was the government of the UAE. And I didn't come close to falling off my chair to learn that their second biggest donor was Saudi Arabia.
“Plentiful legal evidence, acquired in the course of a lawsuit—plus CAIR’s own official filing documents to the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) and IRS—make clear that CAIR has engaged in a thinly-disguised money laundering operation,” David Reaboi, vice president for strategic communications at the Center for Security Policy, told The Daily Caller.
“In addition to violating its 501(c)(3) regulations, CAIR’s undisclosed and hidden foreign donations amount to violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act as well,” Reaboi continued.
But I'm an Islamophobe like the rest of you so the fact that our suspicions about CAIR were completely founded, based on empirical evidence, and not related to prejudice against Muslims at all only reinforces the fact that I'm a bigot.
Update by Howie: WTF!
Council on American-Islamic Relations ... just changed their name to Washington Trust Foundation.Well maybe Nadhira just didn't think of that, why do you bigots expect her to understand crazy of color American acronyms, she was only born here.
Or perhaps more to the point, WHY?

Bikers vs. Muslims: Come on, Who do you Think was Gonna Win?
It's kind of funny how some people think that 9/11 should be a day to air grievances. They should wait for the appropriate time to complain about the US government oppressing them. Like Festivus:
A few dozen demonstrators attending a rally on the Mall once billed as the Million Muslim March were vastly outnumbered Wednesday by a Christian group objecting to their event and a counterprotest consisting of motorcycle riders honoring Sept. 11 victims....So, they stand against terrorism ... also, 9/11 was an inside job?
Ruby Sous, from Kansas City, stressed that Muslims and American-Muslims “stand with America against terrorism.”
“We want to stand here in solidarity with the American people against hate and violence,” she said.
But other speakers addressed fringe topics, condemning what they called the use of U.S. tax dollars to kill innocent people in the Middle East and advancing conspiracy theories around the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks
After reading that, I began to hope that after the Airing of Grievances they would have gone to Feats of Strength. I'd put my money on the bikers in that event.

20% of CIA Applicants in "Subset" Had Terror Ties
I like how all the reporting about this certain "subset" of individuals applying for CIA jobs are rejected for having potential terror ties. It kind of makes you wonder out of which "subset" of the larger population do 20% have sympathies with groups like Hezbollah, Hamas, or al Qaeda?
Now, let me think about it. One in five of this group of people supports terror or at least has some sympathies with the goals of those terrorists.
That's a tough one. Meditating. Thinking. Wheels turning. Light bulb appearing over head. I got it! I bet they're talking about ...... wait a minute. I had it. It's slipping. It was something that starts with an .... was it N? No. M? Yeah, that was it. It starts with an M!
M ..... Mu .... Ma .... Mo ..... Me ..... Mennonites? Yes, that must have been it. Mennonites!
The CIA found that among a subset of job seekers whose backgrounds raised questions, roughly one out of every five had “significant terrorist and/or hostile intelligence connections,” according to the document, which was provided to The Washington Post by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.The catch 22 here is that while the people in this *cough* "subset" are the most likely to have sympathies with terrorists, it is also true that people in this *cough* "subset" are also the most likely to have the skills necessary for infiltrating, collecting info, and analyzing those same terror groups. So, before you go saying that we should ban all people from this *cough* subset from working for the CIA, keep in mind that a lot of the work that goes into catching terrorists came from people from this *cough* "subset".
The groups cited most often were Hamas, Hezbollah, and al-Qaeda and its affiliates, but the nature of the connections was not described in the document.
But the fact that the Washington Post is using a euphemism and can't bear to use the actual "M" word says a lot about our MSM. And I think it also says a lot about the state of denial which exists within this "subset" about the extent of radicalization.

Revoke Pakistani Spy's US Citizenship
The Investigative Project makes a pretty good case for why Pakistani spy Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai should have his citizenship revoked. This guy has been on the ISI's payroll since at least 1990 but didn't gain citizenship until 1994. That means he lied on his immigration forms which ought to lead to a citizenship revocation and his deportation.

UK Man Arrested For "Racial" Tattoo
From The Daily Mail (emphasis mine):
Sean Reah, of South Shields, South Tyneside, has been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.
The 39-year-old was reportedly recently pictured lifting up his T-shirt to reveal an image of a Muslim place of worship with 'BOOM!' displayed across it.
As tasteless as this tattoo may be, it is a form of personal expression that should be protected, or better yet, ignored. But apparently, in the UK, such freedom of expression no longer exists.

Stupid Conspiracy Theorists Who Think Boston Bombing Was Elaborate Conspiracy Chant "Free Jahar"
What kind of people think the Boston Bombings were a false flag operation? Let's just say there's a type.
And while looking for more images of the crazies, I noticed one woman at the free Jahar rally who also fit a type. Only this woman's photo was only posted at a single MSM source. Hmmm, I wonder why?
Here's a hint: the one on the left is getting a lot of media attention.
Creepy, she kind of reminds me of another dimwitted revert I once knew.
A group of about a dozen supporters cheered as the motorcade carrying Tsarnaev arrived at the courthouse. The demonstrators yelled “Justice for Jahar,” as Tsarnaev is known. One woman held a sign that said, “Free Jahar.”The MSM is trying to equate these people with the nutjobs who love convicted murderes like Charles Manson.
Others held signs claiming Tsarnaev’s innocence, while suggesting elaborate conspiracies surrounding the bombing and Tsarnaev’s arrest.
The fact is these nutjobs are a completely different animal than those who love mass murderers. No, these people think that Tsarnaev isn't a mass murderer.
How could he be? He's Muslim!
Everyone knows the CIA is out to make Muslims look bad.

Australian University Censors Speech Offensive to Islam, Threatens Students
June 3, 2013 - NEW YORK - Australian National University (ANU) administrators have given student board members and authors of the school's newspaper Woroni an ultimatum: retract a recently published infographic satirizing Islam or face disciplinary proceedings that could include expulsion. Not surprisingly, the students responded to the school's threat by removing the image from the Internet, having already published an apology to "any readers who felt victimised, while stressing that the piece was intended to be satirical."If you thought the above couldn't happen here, think again: US Attorney: Anti-Muslim Postings on Social Media May Be a Federal Crime.
The infographic was the fifth in a student-produced series that satirized aspects of different religions, preceded by installments on Catholicism, Scientology, Mormonism, and Judaism. Only the piece on Islam drew university censorship, following a complaint by the International Students Department. According to ANU vice-chancellor Ian Young, the Chancelry (administration) "felt [the piece] actually breached the rules of the university in terms of student conduct and . . . breached the rules of at least the Australian Press Council principles to which Woroni abides." Young denied that the censorship was an attack on freedom of speech and asserted that previous cartoons on other major religions were permissible because they did not attract formal complaints.
The implications of this are troubling: the Chancelry has effectively endorsed a policy of selectively restricting speech deemed offensive to Islam, and Islam alone.

Letting the Wookie Win
If the Star Wars reference isn’t obvious, the point I’m trying to make is that liberal progressives have absolutely no problem trashing Christians in social media on a regular basis because Christians don’t pull arms out of sockets or hack people to death in broad daylight for that matter.READ THE REST
No, it's not an anti-Muslim sentiment. If anything it is a call to treat Muslims like adults. When we practice the not-so-soft bigotry of carving out exceptions for Muslims, we give in to terrorism.
I was in Las Vegas early last month and noticed signs announcing that the Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon"was coming to town. Oddly enough, no one in the Justice Department was looking to prosecute Trey Stone or Matt Parker for violating the "civil rights" of Mormons.
And even more curious, no one has threatened to kill them over the play lampooning Mormonism.

ICRC: So What If We Used Our Funds To Honor Pali Terrorists
Earlier this month, Palestinian Media Watch reported on a ceremony in the Palestinian Authority celebrating the International Red Cross' 150th anniversary. The official PA daily reported that the International Red Cross (ICRC) together with the Palestinian Red Crescent planted 150 trees bearing the names of "veteran prisoners," meaning security prisoners who have been imprisoned for many years.
Following PMW's report, the International Red Cross, in a letter to Weekly Press Pakistan - Canad, denied its involvement in the ceremony:
"Please note that ICRC was not present during the planting of the trees ceremony reported by your website."
However, not only did ICRC not condemn the Palestinian Red Crescent's glorification of terrorists in the ceremony, it chose to justify the use of ICRC money by the Palestinian Red Crescent. The ICRC issued a statement defending their right to use donor money any way they choose, even though the issue being raised was the use of ICRC money for terror glorification:"Over the decades, the ICRC has provided support, including financially, both to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and to [Israeli] Magen David Adom for their humanitarian programs. It remains the prerogative of the National Society to define its own priorities and activities and to allocate funds accordingly."
The official PA daily wrote that "the International Red Cross and the Palestinian Red Crescent... planted 150 fruit trees that carry the names of the veteran prisoners jailed in the occupation prisons... [during] a ceremony called 'My Honor is My Freedom'... to mark the 150th anniversary of their founding."Previous:
The PA uses the term "veteran prisoners" to refer to those who have been in jail the longest, and in most cases these prisoners are serving life sentences for murder or multiple murders.

Epicenter Of Evil: Anjem Choudary's Web Of HateOmar Bakri Mohammed, London Beheader's Imam
Click to enlarge
I added the last name of the second Woolwich butcher to the above image. His full name is Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale
Via The Sun: Epicentre of evil- Killer is my pupil, says Choudary
HATE cleric Anjem Choudary yesterday admitted the Woolwich butcher was one of his disciples — and praised his “impeccable character”.Until the PC shite stops we will continue to see these Islamic bast*rds continue their jihad on infidels.
Bile-spewing Choudary acknowledged he helped turn Michael Adebolajo to extremism and that the machete monster was only “making his voice heard in blood”.
The preacher — still free as a bird despite brazenly inspiring terrorists for a DECADE — claimed he did not “condone” the attack that left soldier Lee Rigby dead.
Choudary said of Wednesday’s atrocity by Adebolajo and fellow fanatic Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale: “What he did was unusual and it’s not the view I propagate but those views are out there.
“Some members of the Muslim community struggle to express themselves and he is making his voice heard in blood.”
His comments come three months after The Sun secretly filmed Choudary, who is a British citizen, teaching extremists to “rise up” against non-believers.
We caught the father of four, who The Sun revealed has claimed £25,000 a year in welfare, urging fanatics not to ignore “jihad and fighting”, and labelling David Cameron the devil.
It was just the latest example of Choudary being at the centre of terror plots — leading experts to demand why police are guilty of “a gross derogation of duty” by turning a blind eye towards him.
The Sun handed cops a detailed dossier of Choudary’s terrorist training methods after publication of our expose on February 17. We met detectives at their request on March 6 and handed over reams of paperwork and DVDs of secret recordings of the preacher’s rants.
On March 26 Thames Valley Police-based officers announced they would mount no case — saying the material we provided “fell below an evidential threshold”.
Terrorists are not born, they are made....

PC Kills: Jihad Experts Decry White House Terror Training Guidelines
Experts on Islam and terrorism are decrying the Department of Homeland Security’s recently revealed anti-terrorism training guidelines, which pressure cops to ignore Islamic beliefs when investigating terror crimes.Of course this is happening and has been for a long time. Think 'work place violence' instead of domestic terrorism at Ft Hood and Bronco's declaration of dhimmitude at the UN in regards to the Benghazi terror attack:
The Boston bombings demonstrated the impact of such training, Andrew McCarthy, a former New York prosecutor, told The Daily Caller.
“The Boston Marathon was bombed by a jihadist who had been investigated by the FBI … [and was confirmed in 2011 to be] an Islamist, which would have been hard not to do since he does not appear to have made any secret of it,” said McCarthy, who persuaded a New York jury in 1995 to convict “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman for his use of Islamic teaching to spur jihad attacks, including the 1993 attack against the Twin Towers

Attorney For Boston Bomber: Why Can't We Publish Photos Of Us With Dzhokhar Tsarnaev?
Poor down trodden Tsar in his jail cell would be a win win for the defense or something
I guess the "let's portray Tsar as a victim" didn't work out so well for the defense.
I think the attorney for 'speed bump' Tsar has been reading too many stories about GITMO, just sayin.

International Red Cross Plants Trees To Honor Pali Terrorists
In a ceremony celebrating its 150th anniversary, the International Red Cross together with the Palestinian Red Crescent planted 150 trees bearing the names of "veteran prisoners." The Palestinian Authority uses the term "veteran prisoners" to refer to those who have been in jail the longest, and in most cases are serving life sentences for murder or multiple murders. Giorgio Ferrario, representative of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, participated in this ceremony honoring terrorists, which was named "My Honor is My Freedom."Words escape me, oh wait. Did you hear about Newseum wanting to honor two Hamas terrorists, which they called 'journalists', alongside memorializing others such as Daniel Pearl?
Palestinian Media Watch recently reported that Issa Abd Rabbo, who shot and murdered two university students hiking near Jerusalem, was referred to as a "veteran prisoner." Abd Rabbo was recently honored by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. (See below - names of more murderers serving life sentences referred to by the PA as "veteran prisoners.")
The Palestinian Red Crescent's website writes that its "programs, projects and events" are funded by the International Red Cross:
A Washington D.C.-based journalism museum announced just moments before the start of a memorial service for slain reporters that it would not honor two Hamas terrorists as originally scheduled.At least they did the right thing but it shows the scope of those who fall for Pallywood productions.
The Newseum made the announcement just minutes before the induction of several new reporters into its Journalist Memorial, which honors members of the media who have been killed in the line of duty.
“Serious questions have been raised as to whether two of the individuals included on our initial list of journalists who died covering the news this past year were truly journalists or whether they were engaged in terrorist activities,” the museum said in a statement posted to its website.

State Dept. Seeking Muslim Foreign Service Officers, Connections To Extremists/Hamas No Problem?
Wait, that's another story, Benghazi on me brain but..
A legal watchdog group says the State Department is stonewalling its efforts to obtain records relating to State Department official Mark Ward’s participation in a December 2012[3 months after Benghazi terror attack..ed] conference organized by the controversial Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).Nothing to see here, move along.
Judicial Watch filed suit against the State Department April 26 in an effort to compel the release of materials related to the potential recruitment of U.S. diplomats through two Muslim-American groups purported to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist groups.
The suit, which was announced Thursday, alleges that State has failed to comply with its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for detailed documents related to Ward’s speech, in which he discussed “foreign service opportunities for Muslim youth.”
Both MAS and ICNA have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the global Islamist movement that controls the Egyptian government and whose military wing, the terror group Hamas, runs the Gaza Strip. The conference at which Ward spoke featured speeches by at least two Muslim activists who have advocated in favor of terrorism and were involved in a 2009 lawsuit regarding fundraising for Hamas.

Benghazi: Names Of 'Whistleblower' Witnesses Released
Rep Issa: GOP Oversight May 8th Benghazi hearing will be streamed live at http://Oversight.House.Gov at 11:30
Their identities have been a well-guarded secret, known only to their high-powered lawyers and a handful of House lawmakers and staff. But now Fox News has learned the names of the self-described Benghazi “whistleblowers” who are set to testify before a widely anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday.God Bless them for their service and courage to come forward.
Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will be three career State Department officials: Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for Operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the regional security officer in Libya, the top security officer in the country in the months leading up to the attacks[...]
DiGenova told Fox News on Thursday, by way of describing his and Toensing’s respective clients: “There were people who were material witnesses, who wanted to talk to [the ARB], and they were not allowed to talk to them.
“The people that we are representing are career civil servants...people who have served the country overseas…in dangerous positions all over the world, have risked their lives and only want to tell the truth.”
Most likely leftist and Bronco Bama's MFM are working hard to destroy the credibility of these patriots before the hearing even starts.

PC Kills: Pentagon Brass Crush Career Of Decorated Army Officer Who Taught About Radical Islam
The Pentagon’s top brass has dealt another blow to a decorated Army officer who was fired last year as a war college instructor because of his teachings about radical Islam, his attorney told The Washington Times.Ft Hood: Work Place Violence
A four-star general’s rejection of Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley for consideration for command of a combat battalion likely means the end of a promising Army career of an armor officer who was decorated for valor in Iraq and received glowing evaluations[...]
News of Col. Dooley’s setback has emerged as some researchers of radical Islam are criticizing the Obama administration for downplaying the Islamic connection in a string of attempted and successful terrorist attacks, including the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15.
Mr. Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center in Michigan, said the blame for Col. Dooley’s treatment ultimately belongs to ArmyGen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Gen. Dempsey publicly condemned Col. Dooley’s teachings and set into motion investigations that resulted in his firing[...]
“Yet, despite Gen. Dempsey’s personal attacks on LTC Dooley, a command review board consisting of generals and colonels voted to retain LTC Dooley on the list for battalion command. But political correctness once again dominated the Pentagon. Gen. Lloyd Austin, the Army’s Vice Chief of Staff, directed that LTC Dooley’s name be removed from the Command List. Sadly, a principle of leadership — loyalty to the men who are loyal to you — is once again ignored. [More...]

Report: Boston Has Proven Attractive To al-Qaeda Linked Jihadist
Muslim extremists with ties to al Qaeda have been using Massachusetts and the city of Boston as a jihadi headquarters since at least 1993, according to a recent report by a top terrorism analyst.Color me not surprised.
At least 26 residents were found to have ties to al Qaeda, according to the report by the Henry Jackson Society. The activity dates from before the Tsarnaev brothers, radical Muslim immigrants to the United States, were identified as the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Jihadist activity has taken place in Massachusetts since at least 1993 and includes in-state fundraising for terrorism, “those convicted of planning jihad, and even those who have been killed while fighting abroad,” according to the report by terrorism analyst Robin Simcox.
The city [of Boston] and state of Massachusetts has a long history of ties to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired militancy,” the report states.
“Even prior to last week’s Boston bombing, there had been twenty six individuals with links to Massachusetts connected to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired terrorism,” the report states. “Fifteen had lived in Massachusetts, with eleven 9/11 hijackers using the Boston area as a temporary base from which to launch their attacks.”
The report provides a window into Massachusetts’ struggles with terrorists as the city of Boston grapples with the Tsarvaev brothers’ deadly acts.
