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.

These Aren't The Moderate Opposition We're Looking For
As the Obama administration struggles to address the threat from ISIS and plans to go to Congress in coming weeks to up its commitment against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, multiple media reports indicate that the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) is operating openly with ISIS and other designated terrorist groups. And yet financial and military support for the FSA is the keystone to the administration’s policy in Syria.As they say, Read the Rest.
Last week the Washington Post reported on the Syrian ‘rebel’ takeover of the Golan Heights Quneitra border crossing with Israel (where I reported from last year), with the ‘rebels’ capturing the UN peacekeepers stationed at the crossing. The Post noted:The United Nations gave no further details, but an Israeli military spokesman told CNN that the captors are suspected to be members of al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra, which has been fighting alongside more-moderate, Western-backed rebels for control of the area.The “more-moderate, Western-backed rebels” fighting alongside with Jabhat al-Nusra the Post was referring to, but didn’t dare name, was none other than the FSA.
This is not the only time the FSA has been caught allied with US-designated terrorist groups. Just a month ago the New York Times quoted a ‘rebel’ field commander saying that the FSA had joined ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra in attacking a border post in Lebanon:Reached by phone in Arsal, Abu Osama, a member of Mr. Jomaa’s brigade, said that the sole purpose of Saturday’s attacks was to secure the release of Mr. Jomaa and that they were carried out as a combined operation involving fighters from the Free Syrian Army, the Nusra Front and ISIS.The Times report was quick to note that Abu Osama’s claim could not be confirmed, no doubt because that fact would be devastating to the Obama administration’s ongoing narrative about the “moderate, vetted” FSA. But the facts about the true nature of the FSA are getting harder to conceal.
Hat Tip: Achmed.

Yet Another Totally Innocent Misunderstood Frmer Gitmo Prisoner Arrested For Facilitating Terrorism in Syria
I've run into this guys supporters on twitter a few times, he's always innocent.
Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Moazzam Begg is among four people who have been arrested on suspicion of Syria-related terrorism offences, police have said.The natives sure are restless about this.
Mr Begg, 45, who was held by the US authorities for almost three years, was arrested earlier with two other men and a woman in the West Midlands.
He was detained on suspicion of attending a terrorist training camp and facilitating terrorism overseas.
Update: A more serious take and documentation of Mozzam Beggs jihadism here at Weekly Standard.
After Begg’s release from Guantanamo, he penned a book in which he freely admitted that he was a jihadist. He admitted connections to all sort of al Qaeda characters in the book. Begg also helped spread jihadist propaganda, including that of Anwar al Awlaki, who was eventually killed in a U.S. drone stroke. Begg even became the poster boy for a short-lived first-person shooter game in which players would be able to blast their way out Guantanamo, killing virtual American soldiers in the process. (Public outrage in the U.S. led the company behind the video game to halt production.)
None of this stopped Begg from becoming a rock star among anti-Gitmo activists and lawyers. A few activists here and there, such as Amnesty International’s Gita Saghal and Salman Rushdie, objected to the alliance with Begg. But their calls were by and large ignored.
When the ACLU wanted to produce a video showing the supposed horrors of Guantanamo, it made Begg its star witness.
When Osama bin Laden was killed, the Washington Post solicited an op-ed from Begg, who taunted the U.S. by arguing that the al Qaeda master made America “tremble.”

Good News! Turkey Stakes Claim in America With $100 Million Mega-Mosque
The government of Turkey is building a 15-acre, $100 million mega-mosque in Lanham, Maryland. Turkey's Prime Minister Erdogan visited the site on May 15 as part of his official visit to the U.S.. The state of Maryland was officially represented at the event by its Secretary of State John McDonough.File this under Stealth Jihad.
The event was also attended by the leaders of two U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities.
The mega-mosque is called the Turkish American Culture and Civilization Center and, according to the Muslim Link, it “will likely become the largest and most striking examples of Islamic architecture in the western hemisphere” when it is finished in 2014. The Muslim Link explicitly says it is “a project of the government of Turkey.”
On May 15, Prime Minister Erdogan spoke to hundreds of people at the construction site and said he’d come back for the opening ceremony next year. He warned the audience that there are groups promoting “Islamophobia,” branding potential critics as paranoid bigots. Erdogan recently said that “Islamophobia” and Zionism are equivalent to fascism and anti-Semitism, saying they are a “crime against humanity.”

Alleged Member Of Hezbollah Indicted In San Antonio, TexasWissam Allouche Tried To Get A Sensitive DoD Position
The FBI has arrested a San Antonio man on charges he lied to get into the United States and tried to get a sensitive Defense Department position.h/t Robert Caruso
Wissam Allouche, 44, appeared for an initial hearing Friday afternoon, and shook his head when U.S. Magistrate Judge Henry Bemporad read the charges leveled in a federal indictment. The judge ordered him held pending a bail hearing and his arraignment Tuesday.
“He allegedly tried to cover up his affiliation with Hezbollah,” said special agent Erik Vasys, spokesman for the FBI in San Antonio. “It is believed he was looking to secure a sensitive position with the U.S. government at some point.”[More...]

Sandcrawler PSA: Memory Hole Really Just a Giant Pile of Spam
We've been discussing how useless Google's search has become when big news events break.
Websites everywhere republishing old stories under hot tags and also defeating the date search feature by posting new stories of whatever event to dates prior to the actual event.
All in a mad rush for traffic. Thus rendering Google search as useless as teets on a boar. The memory hole is not as Orwell saw it, where news an information were destroyed by throwing it in a furnace, no the truth and information are now buried under a giant pile of paid Google promotion spam.

State Department Defers on Samira Ibrahim for International Woman of Courage Award
Because not only is she an anti-Semite, she lied about it.
Yesterday, THE WEEKLY STANDARD first reported that the State Department was about to bestow an International Woman of Courage Award on an anti-Semite and 9/11 fan. Egypt women’s rights activist Samira Ibrahim had left a record on her Twitter feed of statements quoting Hitler, celebrating the murder of Israelis in Bulgaria last summer, and the September 11, 2012 siege of the U.S. embassy in Cairo.See should have just been brave and honest about her love for Adolf Hitler and her hate for the Joos on the twitter-o-phone it would have been no problem. But to wuss out and lie like that .... well that's another story.
brahim claimed yesterday that her Twitter page had been “stolen” and she was not responsible for the hateful comments.
...Finally, Ibrahim herself has spoken, writing in Arabic on her Twitter pageI refuse to apologize to the Zionist lobby in America regarding my previous anti-Zionist statements under pressure from American government therefore they withdrew the award

Al Gore Sells Current TV To Al Jazeera
Do you think they will rehire Keith Olbermann?
Such a perfect fit, leftist and Islamists
Al Jazeera is finalizing a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore and his business partners seven years ago.File this under Domestic Dhimmis/Stealth Jihad
If the deal is completed, Current will provide the pan-Arab news giant with something it has sought for years: a pathway into American living rooms. Current is available in about 60 million of the 100 million homes in the United States with cable or satellite service.
Update: Dhimmis at NY Times shows their approval: Al Jazeera Seeks a U.S. Voice Where Gore Failed
Update II: Glenn Beck tried to purchase Current but was turned down
.....The Wall Street Journal reports:Mr. Hyatt said they agreed to sell to Al Jazeera in part because “Al Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current,” including “to give voice to those whose voices are not typically heard” and “to speak truth to power.” Other suitors who didn’t share Current’s ideology were rebuffed. Glenn Beck’s The Blaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,” according to a person familiar with the negotiations
Based on Hyatt’s quote, the owners of Current TV didn’t want Glenn to purchase Current TV and put TheBlaze in millions of home across the country because they didn’t agree with his point of view. They must not feel the same way about Al Jazeera, a news organization that ran an op-ed comparing Glenn to a terrorist.

Spain Refuses Asylum For Pakistani Blasphemer
Imran Firasat could face death for Blasphemy in Pakistan because he made a movie about Mohammad.
Spain has begun deportation proceedings against Imran Firasat, a Christian refugee from Pakistan, for making a documentary about Mohammed and thereby threatening the national security of Spain. If Firasat is deported back to Pakistan, he will face the death penalty proving that it's a short step from the Spanish Inquisition to the Pakistani Inquisition.Ahh Spain, home of the inquisition. Well some of the most famous parts anyway. Under the Inquisition blasphemy would have also been punishable by death.
The United States has a man sitting in prison for making another blasphemous movie, which the government spent weeks blaming for worldwide attacks on American embassies. And he isn't the first man persecuted or prosecuted for offending Islam. Offending Islam has become a national security issue involving all levels of government.
Can you imagine the cries of outrage if the a nation state still used the Catholic Church or any other Christian law to impose such a penalty for blasphemy in the modern west?
But Islam and Pakistan will get a pass, because of, you know, the cowardice.
threatening the national security of Spain
Blasphemy makes terrorism seem predictable. It delivers that false sense of control that is at the root of Stockholm Syndrome, the seductive illusion that the thug can be reasoned with and that we can restore control over our perilous environment by accepting responsibility for the enemy's violence. If we meet a set of conditions then we will have peace. And what kind of lunatic wouldn't want peace? The kind who needs to be deported or locked up in the name of peace.Hat Tip: Tarek.

Another Reason To Vote For Romney: Pelosi Headlined DCCC Fundraiser With Muslim Brotherhood Front Groups
The Investigative Project on Terrorism has learned that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Democratic Party fundraiser with leaders of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood front groups in May of this year.The Democrats would sell their souls to the devil to stay in power, and they appeared to have done just that.
The invitation-only fundraiser was sponsored by Reps. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.; Andre Carson, D-Ind.; and Steve Israel, D-N.Y., chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and took place on the evening of May 16, 2012, at the W Hotel in Washington D.C.
In attendance were about 20 members of a Syrian dissident group and 10 officials representing Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas front groups. Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Executive Director Nihad Awad was perhaps the most prominent attendee and played a key role in organizing the event.
CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007-2008 Holy Land Foundation Hamas money-laundering trials, was described in FBI testimony as having been created by Hamas. In a 2007 federal court filing, prosecutors described CAIR as conspiring with other branches of the Muslim Brotherhood to support terrorists.
The FBI officially severed relations with CAIR in 2008 because of its ties to Hamas.
Awad has openly championed Hamas and defended suicide bombings as "legitimate resistance."
File this under stealth jihad.

Why Is The Obama Administration Defending Terrorist Supporting, 9/11 Truther MPAC's Salam al-Marayati?
Is it any wonder Ft Hood attack happened? Or Benghazi? Or the military brass blacklisting of radical Islam course instructor **Lt. Col Matthew Dooley?
Via Free Beacon
Jewish leaders expressed outrage Friday over the State Department’s praise for, and defense of, a controversial Muslim leader who has defended terrorist groups and suggested that Israel may have been responsible for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.His twitter account is not very active but he did RT this from MPAC, hence the ** above:
Salam al-Marayati, founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), was picked to represent the United States government at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe’s (OSCE) annual 10-day human rights conference, the Human Dimension Implementation Meetings (HDIM).
Al-Marayati’s well-known anti-Israel bona fides prompted Jewish leaders and others to express outrage over the Obama administration’s selection.
“It is regrettable that someone with such distorted, conspiratorial views—even with a lackluster apology—is delegated by our government to represent our country abroad,” the Anti-Defamation League said in a statement to the Free Beacon.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, argued that the State Department is showing inconsistency by touting an individual who has defended the militant groups Hezbollah and Hamas, both of which are designated by the U.S. as terrorist organizations[...]
Josh Block, a former Clinton administration official who now serves as CEO of The Israel Project, said the State Department’s defense of al-Marayati lacks credibility.
“That statement, defending a person who is clearly a terrorist sympathizer and deeply hostile to Israel, calls into question the credibility of the person who gave it, and it raises a very serious question: What exactly is the U.S. government saying here?” Block asked.
Salam al-Marayati went on Los Angeles radio claiming that Israel was behind the terror attacks. CAMERA has a list of al-Marayati's greatest hits.The Investigative Project has an extensive profile of MPAC.[PDF]
In a profile of Marayati at the Investigative Project we discover that MPAC not only has urged removing Hezbollah and Hamas from US terrorist lists, but openly defended the Hezbollah suicide bombing in Beirut in 1983, which killed 241 US service members:

Frank Gaffney: Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Overview
Just think, there is a "*medical doctor by training" currently based in New York". This person is the editor of the Muslim Brotherhood's English language website Ikhwanweb. Note my highlighted parts:
The Muslim Brotherhood Takes Twitterh/t ztruth
[...]Miriam's partner-in-tweeting Hazem Malky, 36 -- a self-described "certified Twitter addict" who previously tweeted prolifically @hazemmalky publicly, but recently locked his account to avoid "hate-tweets" -- is an editor at Ikhwanweb and *medical doctor by training. Currently based in New York, he also prefers to use a pseudonym, citing worries over "Zionist elements" and the United States government. He talks a mile a minute with a vaguely Brooklyn drawl, adroitly weaving arguments together with an easy mix of American vernacular and Classic Arabic. He says he tweets from his iPhone on the road, at the dinner table, even in his sleep. "Actually," he concedes, "it's sort of pathetic."
In part, their turn to Twitter reflects a broader need for the Muslim Brotherhood to engage with and reassure Egyptians and the West[Read it all]
Yes, it might be a good idea to watch the 10 parts...

Shocking News! Taliban and al-Qaeda Fighters Totally Dependent on Pakistani Intelligence For Support!?!?!
The Taliban in Afghanistan depend on Pakistan for support, even though they do not necessarily welcome it, a secret NATO report says, according to a journalist who has read it.Of course the greater irony is that the Pakistanis are dependent on American aid to support the Taliban and al-Qaeda's fight against the U.S.
"It is a marriage of convenience," Times of London reporter Jerome Starkey said Wednesday, citing the report. The Taliban see Pakistan as manipulative, but they see no alternative to accepting its support, he said.
The Taliban are absolutely confident of victory, he said the report found, based on 27,000 interviews with over 4,000 detainees ranging from senior Taliban commanders to Afghan civilians.
They also include mid- and low-level Taliban, al Qaeda, and foreign fighters, he said.
The leaked NATO document revives the longstanding accusation that elements in Pakistan's Inter Services Intelligence agency are aiding the insurgency in Afghanistan.
It says the ISI knows the whereabouts of all senior Taliban commanders, Starkey said.

Good News: Co-Conspirator in Sadat's Murder Now Egyptian MP
Wants His Akhi Ayman al-Zawahiri to Return to Egypt
A member of the newly elected Egyptian parliament has called for al Qaeda's emir to return to the country "with his head held high and safely."Read more:
Aboud al Zomor, who served as the first emir of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad and was later imprisoned for his role in President Anwar Sadat's assassination, said that he welcomes Ayman al Zawahiri's return to Egypt and that he would be given safe haven, according to a report published yesterday in Al-Sharq Al-Awsat. The report was translated from Arabic by the Foundation For Defense of Democracies.
"When asked if he saw any danger in al Zawahiri's return, al Zomor said that 'he was not a threat to Egypt, the likes of al Zawahiri differed with the previous regime and they were only a danger for this regime and not for Egypt, and now he is liberating Afghanistan and Iraq...'" the report stated. Zomor also lamented that the US would be opposed to Zawahiri's return to Egypt.
Zomor denied having direct contact with members of al Qaeda, and claims to have renounced violence.
"I've distanced myself from that currently because I took the political line and closed the page on the past, as a result of which doors to peaceful action opened for us," he told Al-Sharq Al-Awsat.
Zomor is one of the primary founders of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the terrorist group that merged with al Qaeda. Zawahiri succeeded Zomor as the group's emir and presided over its merger with bin Laden's terror group in the 1990s.

Toronto School Board: WTF Is This About?
The tacit endorsement of Islam by the Toronto school board.Bibles are banned but this is permitted? WTF is up with that?
The girls are being segregated during Muslim prayers, that as I have mentioned in the title, are being held in a PUBLIC SCHOOL “mosqueteria”, if you will.
The article that accompanied the photo below, gives as the reason the girls in the back are being segregated from the group is that they are having their periods. But if you notice, [all] of the girls are separated by rows of bleachers from their male classmates. How embarrassing for them to have their periods made public! And that menstruating girls are deemed so unclean that they are not even allowed to participate in the prayers with those of their own gender is all the more disturbing. Then again, what about Islam is not disturbing?
I have an idea - "you masturbated akhi, go sit with the unclean Muslimahs"
Update by Howie: More here at Blazing Cat Fur!
Yes, I know, males and females are separated in mosques but this is a fecking school for gawds sake. Payed for by the taxpayers...

Suspicious Vehicle Near the Pentagon (Update: Suspect identified as Marine Corps Reservist Yonathan Melaku)
Update: I'm getting conflicting reports, Both NBC and CBS are reporting that a "device" was found and rendered safe. Other reports at this time do not confirm any device.
Ozarks First: CBS News - A suspicious item found inside a vehicle near the Pentagon has been "disrupted" and "rendered safe," a law enforcement official has told CBS News.Also there are reports that the man in custody is of Ethiopian origin, which is right next door to terrorist controlled Somalia.
The U.S. Park Police have in custody a man believed to be connected to the item, according to Park Police spokesman Sgt. David Schlosser.
The incident began when a man -- believed to be a naturalized US citizen who came to the US from Ethiopia -- was found in the nearby Arlington National Cemetery overnight Thursday. The man was arrested at the scene.We'll update again when we know more. If anyone has more please feel free to ad in comments.
Also its being reports that a notebook and suspicious devices were located in various places, although not in the car itself at this point.
Authorities reportedly found al Qaeda-related statements, a backpack initially believed to contain ammonium nitrate, and spent 9mm shells at the scene, ABC's "Good Morning America" reported.Hat Tip: Town Hall.
A notebook containing words including "al Qaeda" and Taliban" was found at the scene, FOX News Channel reported.
CBS News reported that the arrested man was suspected of planting several suspicious devices around the Pentagon, the Arlington National Cemetery and the Iwo Jima Memorial.
US Park Police Sergeant David Schlosser said at a news conference early Friday law enforcement authorities were conducting sweeps of the Pentagon, the cemetery and the memorial.
"We're pretty early in this right now so were going to be doing sweeps. We're coordinating our efforts to make sure that the entire area is safe," Schlosser said.
UPDATE by SH: [Emphasis mine]FNC
DEVELOPING: The man in custody for carrying a backpack with "suspicious items and products" inside Arlington National Cemetery overnight is a U.S. Marine Corps reservist, military and law enforcement sources tell Fox News.UPDATE II by SH: It has been confirmed he has a record, here is a report of his earlier arrest: Yonathan Melaku arrested in Leesburg car tamperings
Yonathan Melaku, a Lance Corporal Marine corps reservist who lives in Virginia and who is Muslim, has been identified as the suspect in custody, Fox News has learned.
Sources close to the investigation also said a notebook believed to belong to the man was found containing threatening phrases like "Al Qaeda," "Taliban rule" and "defeated coalition forces."[More]
UPDATE by Rusty: FYI, about half of Ethiopia's population is Muslim.
I'm not sure what to make of this guy yet. Given that he was arrested in a string of car vandalisms, what does that say about his intentions? I'm not sure.
Especially now that "nothing suspicious" (h/t: Doug Powers) was found in the car and that whatever was in his backpack was "inert". Dry run? Playing jihadi at night by himself in a cemetery? An al Qaeda super-spooky seance? I really don't know.
Maybe he is a lone wolf carrying out the aspirations of al Qaeda which hopes to provoke small scale operations. But if that is the case then it is our good fortune that most of the kinds of people susceptible to such provocation are morons.

Florida Bar drops all charges against Rifqa Bary attorney John Stemberger
Some good news on front lines fighting against Islamic lawfare. As Jawa readers are aware, we are currently involved in the parallel federal lawsuit filed by Ohio jihadist attorney Omar Tarazi who is seeking to force the defendants, Pamela Geller and John Stemberger, to reveal the identity of yours truly. Our attorney has asked the court for a protective order with respect to our identity. We'll give you an update in that case next week. But for now, here's the good news:
(Orlando, FL) On Thursday, May 19, 2011, The Florida Bar signed and filed a voluntary and complete dismissal of the grievance complaint brought against Rifqa Bary’s attorney, John Stemberger, who is a leading conservative Christian advocate based in Orlando, Florida. In the proposed final Report of the Referee, the judge found no ethical violations and wrote “I recommend the matter be dismissed.” The Final Report of the Judge/Referee is subject to approval by the Florida Supreme Court.
Rifqa Bary was the teenage Muslim-to-Christian covert who made international news in 2009 after fleeing her parents and the radical Islamic community in Columbus, Ohio when threatened with an honor / apostate killing for her conversion. Stemberger represented Bary in the Orlando dependency case before the jurisdiction of the case was transferred to Ohio. Rifqa’s legal team won her case on August 10, 2010 when they secured her dependency status away from her parents and eventually obtained her immigration standing as a permanent U.S. legal resident with a track to become a citizen in about four years.
The formal filing by The Florida Bar was a “Voluntary Dismissal with Prejudice” which permanently dismisses the entire Complaint and all three of its alleged charges against Stemberger. The case was previously on a schedule to be tried by the chief judge of the Polk County Court on June 22, 2011. Earlier this year, the Florida Supreme Court tagged the case as high profile and in an unusual move, ordered eight copies of everything filed to delivered to each justice on the high court and post online all the filings.
The Florida Bar’s dismissal of the case came exactly one week after the deposition of Rifqa Bary was taken telephonically at an undisclosed location for security reasons. At the end of the deposition, Rifqa gave a passionate plea that the action being taken against Stemberger was a “grave injustice” and that he was responsible for helping to save her life.
The “grievance” against Stemberger was originally filed with The Florida Bar by Muslim attorney Omar Tarazi of Columbus, Ohio who represented Rifqa’s parents. After the grievance complaint, Tarazi continued to retaliate against Stemberger by filing a ten million dollar lawsuit in an Ohio federal court claiming he was “defamed” by part of a 30 second interview on Fox and Friends where his name was not even mentioned. That defamation claim is still pending and being pursued by Tarazi in the Southern District of Ohio.
Rifqa Bary also made the following formal statement after learning about the grievance dismissal: “I believe the bringing of this case was a great injustice because I would not be here without the aid of this man's counsel in my court hearing. With a wife and four children, he still spent countless hours each day, without pay, fighting for my freedom and safety… even to the point of it costing his health. I believe Mr. Stemberger to be a man of absolute integrity and honesty.”
John Stemberger also released the following statement: “Integrated Bar Associations around the country are slowly losing their identities as merely professional associations created to educate and regulate lawyers. Instead, many are becoming increasingly ideological and political. Additionally, many institutions of society, including bar associations, are bending over backwards to accommodate members of Islam as a new protected class. Instead of championing constitutional free speech rights, bar organizations are opting for enforcing political correctness.”
The state Bar in Kansas has also tried to discipline Attorney General Phill Kline for statements he has made in exposing Planned Parenthood and its illegal activities. Angie Lloyd is a clinical law professor and respected child advocate in Columbus who served as one of Rifqa Bary’s lawyers in Ohio. She also had criminal charges filed against her and an Ohio Bar Grievance both filed by Omar Tarazi. Instead dismissing the frivolous complaint, The Ohio Bar has also chosen to pursue the complaint against Lloyd. John Stemberger has written on “lawfare”-- the use of law and legal processes as a weapon to squelch free speech.
Those wishing to make a contribution to help John Stemberger pay for the attorney’s fees and costs of these legal attacks can do so online at his Legal Defense Fund at www.StembergerDefense.com.

Islamic documentary matinee inside the DOJ on May 19
Patrick Poole has been reporting extensively here at Pajamas on the Justice Department scuttling terrorist prosecutions against “Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) co-founder Omar Ahmad.” Poole reported a “high-placed DOJ source told me the case was nixed to prevent embarrassment to the Obama administration and to avoid inflaming the Muslim community.”Hmmm
Sources at the DOJ tell me that Thursday May 19 will be Islamic movie day at the DOJ. A 1pm matinee is scheduled. Specifically, Civil Rights Division employees at the DOJ have been invited to take off work, and trek across town to the 7th floor conference center at Main Justice to view the documentary film “Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think.” No word on whether the DOJ will host a sequel called “What the Other 570,000,000 Muslims Think.”[Continue reading..]

American Muslim Scholars Against Democracy
Oddly, you won't find the religious ruling against democratically made law in the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America's English fatwa bank. But in Arabic ....
This would be the same group of Salafi scholars that issued a fatwa against American Muslims helping the troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. You know, the "moderates" who are against violence but tacitly support the enemies of the United States.
To be honest, they seem like the kind of "moderate" Islamists that the peacenicks and multiculturasts are always telling us we can live with. If I understand the fatwa, the cleric is saying that something like Iranian style "democracy" which limits the decisions of those elected to the constraints outlined by sharia would work, but whenever the decisions of lawmakers conflicts with sharia then those decisions would be overruled. In essence, a Constitutional democracy in which the Constitution is replaced with Islamic law and the Supreme Court is replaced with a group of scholars.
Which in my mind isn't democracy at all. Just a hallowed shell using the word democracy to legitimize this or that ruler who's ultimate job is just to implement the oppressiveness of the predetermined rules. That those rules cannot be changed speaks loads about this so-called "democracy".
But, whatevs. If these people want to oppress their own I feel sad for them but it's really none of our business. As long as they keep their "moderate" Islamism somewhere else and don't try to spread it I'm really not much in the mood for interventionism in the name of ideas anymore.

Al-Jazeera Host: The Satellite Channels Are the Real Engines of the Revolutions in the Arab World; Giving Facebook Credit for the Revolutions Is 'A Lie and a Distortion of the Truth'
Dr. Faisal Al-Qassem, who hosts the popular Al-Jazeera talk show "The Opposite Direction," wrote in an op-ed in the Qatari daily Al-Sharq that it is the satellite channels that are the real engine behind the revolutions in the Arab world, not the online social networks. He added that the latter have not yet gained much currency among the Arab public[...]Funny how most the info about the revolution has been fed to AlJazeera via protesters on the ground via the Internet they supposedly can't use.
"[One must also keep in mind that] in the Arab countries, Internet is usually slow and annoying, and makes users lose patience. It is well-known that in some Arab countries they praise the impact of 'electronic jihad' – but [the fact is that] due to the turtle pace of the Internet in these countries, it is easier to travel to London to receive a message than to send it by email...
"In Tunisia, which had the privilege of starting the blessed Arab revolution, [former president] Ben 'Ali throttled the Internet with unprecedented barbarity. He even established an Internet Ministry, and purchased mega-computers for millions of dollars, in order to control the Internet and its users... So neither the Internet nor Facebook sparked the Tunisian revolution. If they [had any role at all], it was very small.
"The same is surely true for the other republics of fear, that make people show their IDs before entering an Internet café so as to keep tabs on them and intimidate them. In these [countries], entering a banned website is an offence punishable by decades in prison. Whoever starts a blog, or writes anything against the president, will surely find himself in the dungeons of the Interior Ministry [investigation apparatuses]."

Meet “the Most Dangerous Islamist on Planet Earth”
The latest documents from Wikileaks shows growing concern among U. S. officials over Fethullah Gulen’s attempts to create a New Islamic World and the “braining washing of students” that takes place at his charter schools within the United States and throughout the Muslim world.Stay tuned...
The cable that speaks of the “brain-washing” was written in 2009 by James Jeffrey, the U. S. Ambassador to Turkey.
In the cable, Mr. Jeffrey describes Gülen as a “political phenomena” in Turkey even when he resides “in exile” within a mountain fortress in Pennsylvania. He says the Gülen movement has gained control of Turkey’s government and dictates Turkish policy which has become increasing anti-Israeli and anti-American. It points out that the leaders of the Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma or AKP) who now govern Turkey, including Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and President Abdullah Gul, appear to serve as Gulen’s puppets.
Other newly released cables state that Gulen’s disciples now direct the country’s 200,000 strong police force - - a force that remains in conflict with the military, which sees the group as an enemy.
In recent months, Turkish military leaders, and other critics of the AKP, have been arrested in the dead of night and whisked off to detention cells.
According to NurettinVeren, who served as Fethullah Gulen’s right-hand man “There are imam security directors; imams wearing police uniforms. Many police commissioners get their orders from imams.
“It is not possible to confirm the Turkish police are under the control of the Gülen community members, but we have not met anybody who denies it,” one cable said.
The most dangerous Islamist on planet earth
Gulen has been labeled “the most dangerous Islamist on planet earth,” although he has failed to attract the attention of U. S. counter-terrorism experts and the national media.[Read the rest]

Hamas Fires Mortars Into Israel
50 mortars fired into Israel, 2 injured...
Hamas' armed wing, the Izzadin Kassam Brigades, claimed responsibility for a dozen of the mortars fired.
One building sustained extensive damage in the Eshkol Regional Council although a majority of the projectiles landed in open areas, local officials reported.
The regional council is inhabited predominantly by farmers, and has been the target of Palestinian shelling for several years.
Eyal Brandeis, a kibbutz secretary in the Eshkol Regional Council, and the head of a local emergency response team, told The Jerusalem Post that the injured were a married couple who had been attempting to seek cover in a safe zone - a room reinforced with concrete to protect from projectiles.
"It happened just as they entered the room. The couple were responding to instructions we sent out on cell phone text messages calling on all residents to seek shelter. They ran to the room, and shrapnel went through the window just before they could close it," Brandeis said.

Samir Khan AKA Inshallahshaheed Begs American Muslims to Blow Themselves Up
Come on Sammy, what is wrong with you and Anwar al-Awaki?
Wired: Tomorrow, Rep. Peter King convenes his hearing on the radicalization of the American Muslim community. One group is hoping all the scare talk about the — complete with some serious and “expert” scare talk about all those jihadis among us. But there are some other experts out there with a very different perspective on the subject: actual domestic radicals. Turns out, American jihadis are really disappointed in American Muslims for their utter disinterest in al-Qaeda. And no wonder: more than 99.9 percent of U.S. Muslims want nothing to do with the radicals, new statistics show.Yes American Muslims, join the Jihad. But note that all the people urging you to martyr yourself for al-Qaeda have never ever ever done a suicide attack. Some have been captured fighting or were killed by American forces, most just get arrested and imprisoned. But go back and look at the propaganda, which of these talking heads ever ended up in a Martyrdom video by suicide?
Unfortunately, no homegrown terrorists seem willing or able to testify, either because they’re subpoena-shy, in federal prison or playing a high stakes game of hide-and-seek with American drones in Yemen. They’re a chatty bunch, though, and have left a record of their thoughts on Muslims and their representatives here in the United States.
Take Samir Khan, for instance. Before fleeing to Yemen to edit the jihadist magazine Inspire, he freelanced media support for al-Qaeda from his home in North Carolina via the internet. Khan was quick to bemoan American Muslims’ disinterest in his concept of jihad, playing it off as the product of distraction rather than disagreement.
“It is the culture of hating death and loving wealth,” Khan wrote of American Muslim culture in a post to his “Ignored Puzzle Pieces of Knowledge” blog, using a play on Osama Bin Laden’s classic catch phrase. “They don’t want to fling themselves into the spears of the enemies when they could be playing their PlayStation 3 or enjoying their favorite television show or sport whilst eating their favorite dinner meal.”
It was a sentiment he later echoed in the pages of Jihad Recollections, an English-language screed Khan published with fellow extremists. It became the template for Inspire. “Their Islam is limited to the more ‘acceptable’ parts of the Qur’an and Sunnah, whilst they shun Islam’s more controversial or antagonistic teachings,” Khan wrote of those promoting “moderate” Islam. “We find many of our fellow Muslims in America that are absolutely blinded by the inspiring play of American politics, the comfortable practice of ‘moderate’ Islam, and the denunciation of the Islamists.”
Answer: Not one!
Samir Khan AKA A Martyr Allah Willing has spent a lot of time glorifying the death of this or that poor Muslim sucker whom they sent to murder their fellow Muslim brothers. Its about time he put his money where his mouth is, Allah willing of course.
It seems that Allah is willing, Samir Khan not so much.
And after that aks yourself why Ghadafi released all those al-Qaeda just when he got really worried you might become free?

F*ck Shariah 4 America! (bumped)
Well the good boys at al-Buruj, no wait I PWNED that site, I mean Revolution Muslim, no wait that was effing owned too. Ahh the boys at Shariah 4 America. Their new "more moderate blog" are calling for the destruction of Lady Liberty again.
Which proves that the more things change, the more they stay the same. The graphic is from Yousef al-Khattab and Younis Abdullah Muhammad's old al-Buruj site.
When someone is pounding Anjem Choudary’s face into the pavement during tomorrow’s protest in front of the White House, please make sure they tell him this isn’t the UK, we don’t celebrate multiculturalism.Well now that the morons from Islam4UK have taken over Revmo they are running the same old tired ideas they stole from Yousef al-Khattab because he's the only one with even half a brain.Shariah4America.com: In Islam, the public veneration of idols and statues is strictly prohibited. This has forced sincere Muslims to develop realistic plans that will aid in the removal of the Statue of Liberty.
Due to the scale of the task at hand, it is highly likely that rigorous safety checks will need to be employed before the demolition of the Statue of Liberty can commence; thus as a temporary measure, it is proposed that a large burkha is used to cover the statue, thereby shielding this horrendous eye sore from public view as well as sending a strong message to its French creators.
Our official opinion, even if lady liberty is French, we like her and she'll come down over our cold dead bodies.
F*ck Shariah 4 America.
UPDATE by SH: Anjem Choudary is a no show, cites security concerns[video]. He left out TSA...like in no fly list.
Updated and bumped: See this entry from Patterico.
Update: Via Ed Driscoll there is some evidence that this is just site is parody. I would say look over the site for yourself and, well, given what I know about the ridiculousness of radical Islam, it’s hard to know. For instance on this page they call off a proposed march. But on the other hand, on this page they discuss the Islamic definition for pedophilia, which is death. But then they suggest they do it by impaling them on top of the Washington Monument. Which sounds crazy, but, um… have you ever watched Memri for a week? Have you ever seen respected Egyptian academics suggest that Mossad is controlling sharks? Its really hard to know satire from reality with them.Yeah I know, it seems almost too surreal. For sure the site is designed to "get a rise out of the infidels".
So, I think the right answer is to classify this as a dubious story. Certainly I cannot stand behind it any longer. And it proves you can’t satirize something that is already ridiculous.
But to be serious for a minute. Time and time again members of this specific social network, and also closely connected to various other branches of this network, have been proven to b e criminals, died in or committed acts of terrorism in the meat world, traveled abroad to join al-Qaeda etc, etc, etc.
That is to say that members of this network and even the network itself has had proven real world results that are not so funny.
We have as much fun making fun of the Jihadis as anyone. But I've an example of those real world results for those who would brush this off as totally ridiculous.
This comes from a member of the same network, this was praised by the members there. I warn you its very graphic, but at this point I think its appropriate to remember how often times this all ends.
Warning graphic image. Do not proceed if you are a minor or squeamish.
Last chance, DO NOT PROCEED.

Most of the success of the ill conceived scheme to demonize Islam resulted from the rush to judgment that took place following 9/11, and the failed 9/11 investigation which wrongly concluded that Muslims had carried out criminal terrorist attacks on the US on September 11, 2001.The above paragraph pretty much sums up what this organization is about.

Would You Send Your Kids To A Summer Camp Built By Controversial Muslim Group (ICNA)
Via Mental Recession
One of the largest Muslim organizations in North America is considering plans to build a summer camp on 114 acres of land in the Adirondacks. Via the Albany Times Union:All religions? No, stealth jihad“The Islamic Circle of North America, a Muslim advocacy group based in New York City, hopes to raise money to develop a camp for children and families of all religions on land donated to it last year.
”The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), based in Queens, New York, is not devoid of controversy in a history that spans over 40 years, yet there is scant mention of these controversies by the media. The Times Union article states that, “U.S. law enforcement agencies have investigated, but never prosecuted, ICNA for terrorist connections.” And there is coverage of a fundraiser involving speakers having made anti-American statements in the past, which is quickly justified by saying, “the meeting raised money for homeless women.”Gawd...
But the ICNA has so much more to offer in the way of newsworthiness, including an event involving radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, as well as a link to the presently relevant Muslim Brotherhood.

Massacre in Libya
Details have emerged of huge casualty figures in the Libyan city of Benghazi, where troops have launched a brutal crackdown on protesters.I don't guess anyone needs me to comment on Gadaffi murdering folks at funerals. Its barbarity speaks for itself.
More than 200 people are known to have died, doctors say, with 900 injured.
The most bloody attacks were reported over the weekend, as funeral marches were said to have come under machine-gun and heavy weapons fire.
One doctor, speaking amid the sound of fresh gunfire on Sunday, told the BBC that "a real massacre" had happened.
Human Rights Watch says at least 173 people have been killed in Libya since demonstrations began on Wednesday.
Benghazi, the country's second city, has been a leading focus of protests against four decades of rule by Col Muammar Gadaffi.
Witnesses said troops used machine-guns, mortars, large-calibre weapons, and even a missile, against the mourners.
Opposition supporters said the attack was unprovoked, although security sources suggested some protesters threw firebombs at the compound.
Some described scenes of chaos as army snipers shot from the roofs of buildings and demonstrators fought back against troops on the ground.
The doctor told the BBC that some Benghazi residents had been shot outside their homes by neighbourhood militias and bodies had been dumped on the street.
Isn't he held up as a Good Muslim in the struggle to kill infidels?
Why now is he murdering Muslims instead?
Here is some video from Libya, graphic truth warning.

Jihadist attorney takes aim at the Jawa Report, the Jawas go to federal court seeking protective order
Back in September we reported that blogger Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and attorney John Stemberger had been sued by Ohio jihadist attorney Omar Tarazi over public comments they made during the Rifqa Bary saga (Stemberger was Rifqa's Florida attorney). We have been following this lawsuit very closely, but several months ago our attention to the case became more personal.
Discovery requests by Tarazi revealed that part of his agenda was to expose my (Barbarossa) real-world identity. One request demands the following from Geller and Stemberger:
“The identity and contact information for the individual who posts under the name Barbarossa on the Jawa Report Blog.”
He has also demanded that Stemberger reveal the identity of a confidential informant who provided him information about Tarazi and his connections to the terror-tied Bary family mosque, the Noor Islamic Cultural Center, during Rifqa's custody case.
Because of our many and very public tangles with jihadists and actual terrorists here at the Jawa Report, revealing anyone of our identities could pose a real danger to our health and safety. If my identity were revealed, Tarazi could use the court system to compel me to reveal the identities of other Jawa contributors (or how much crazy blog ad money Howie spends per month on ghey midget porn). Needless to say, we can't let that happen (especially for Howie).
So earlier this week an attorney filed a motion for a protective order in federal court on behalf of myself and Stemberger's confidential informant. We have posted the motion submitted to the court below the fold. Fortunately, we have a great, experienced attorney representing us. He's confident that the law is on our side to not only protect our identity, but also that this search-and-destroy lawsuit targeting Rifqa's supporters will be promptly thrown out of court. But it might take some time and some financial assistance to make that happen.
With that in mind, I need to ask for your help. So far the legal costs to file for this protective order have been underwritten by the Middle East Forum's Legal Project. I'm kindly asking readers of the Jawa Report to go to the Legal Project's paypal page and throw them some shekels to help us fight this jihadist lawfare attack. Please note "Barbarossa" or "Jawa Report" in the comment section.
I also ask that you consider helping support John Stemberger's legal defense fund. He is not only a defendant in this bogus federal lawsuit, but is currently fighting a separate bogus bar complaint against him filed by Tarazi with the Florida Bar (who was been more than a willing accomplice since many of Stemberger's political enemies are using this to cripple his efforts). You can donate to his legal fund here.
Donations to the Middle East Forum's Legal Project and the Stemberger Legal Defense Fund are tax-deductible. All of the money goes to the attorneys to help fight this jihadist lawfare attack on our First Amendment rights. We personally won't see a dime of this money.
Thanks in advance to all of our loyal readers here at the Jawa Report for your prayers and financial support as we continue to fight this battle.
Our motion for a protective order filed in federal court this week is below the fold. The case number is 2:10-cv-00161.
