WISIS Experiences Technical Difficulties
I was just tuning into ISIS radio.
U.S. airstrikes in eastern Afghanistan killed 29 ISIS fighters and struck the terrorist group's FM radio station, signaling American forces' continued military action in the war-torn nation -- albeit against a different entity that brought them there in the first place.All I got was static.
The strikes occurred Monday evening in Nangarhar province, according to Ataullah Khogyani, a spokesman for that province's governor. Khogyani said the 29 killed included eight ISIS members who worked on the group's radio and online efforts.
Until then, ISIS propaganda could be heard on the radio station in Nangarhar's capital of Jalalabad. Khogyani said the U.S. strikes not only hit the radio facility but destroyed the Islamic extremist group's internet equipment.

Jawa Iowa Caucus Results
I'm going to go ahead and call Iowa for Cruz.
The rest can pack it up.
Update: Hillary takes Iowa by the skin of some pre-pledged delegates. I'm not sure how this works but Bern got Berned. Clinton takes 24 delegates Sanders 21.
But looking overall Clinton already has 409 delegates to Sanders 34.
On the Republican, or less corrupt side, its Cruz 8, Trump and Rubio 7 delegates.
Carson holds three delegates he could pledge, Paul and Bush one each.

Analysis of ISIS Video on Paris Attacks
This analysis is quite striking, as there are many groups mentioned that Jawa Report warned about years ago. Extremists in plain sight.
Choudary's groups and their branches, Mainly of English French and Belgians that joined with the more well known Sharia4UK. These groups were related to some US networks, many of which joined the jihad or were broken up by law enforcement.
Of the nine attackers portrayed in ISIS's new video, seven were Europeans who traveled to Syria, joined ISIS, traveled back to Belgium and finally to France where they conducted the Paris attacks. Their nefarious journeys shed light on the legal gaps in Europe that gave refuge to extremists who desire to implement an Islamic caliphate there.In fact many of these groups videos are still online, including sermons by Siddhartha Dhar. I'd flag them but the ones that remain, though they contain the core of radical thought, are stubborn and probably don't violate terms, or are held for intelligence reasons.
Until a few months ago, extremists like Anjm Choudary in the UK and Mulla Krekar in Norway promoted an Islamic caliphate and recruited ISIS's sympathizers, yet were still living freely with access to the media, the Internet and Muslim societies in Europe.
houdary, Krekar and many others lived freely for years, despite the fact that their followers marched in European cities to demand an Islamic caliphate and Sharia laws, promoted hate speech and waved al-Qaeda's flags, harassed Western women for wearing European-style clothes or for walking with their boyfriends. All this was taking place because technically those ISIS sympathizers were not violating the law. As long as these kinds of actions continue – and the laws remain the same -- ISIS will always find Western sympathizers and attacks in the West will occur.
The former and current policy of online tolerance of terrorist hasn't worked. The demonstrated danger of their online and real world activity is quite clear. So what, now.
I chose not to run this video, one it was released quite a long time after the attacks, which gives time to generate deceptions or maybe demonstrates pressure on ISIS media. Three I'm just tired or the apocalyptic BS from ISIS.
Its all the same, Muslim Muslim, Martyr Martyr, Murder Murder, rinse, repeat.
In fact its pretty much that on all sides, Sunni, Shia, The Syrian Regime..... although they do seem more professional about it. A killer in a tie, maybe you can bargain, the rest are incorrigible butchers.
Complete, Unedited Video of Joint FBI and OSP Operation 01/26/2016 ( shooting of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum)
This is the complete video footage of a joint FBI and Oregon State Police traffic stop and OSP officer-involved shooting of Robert "LaVoy" Finicum on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. This footage, which has only been edited to blur out aircraft information, was taken by the FBI on 01/26/2016 and released by the FBI on 01/28/2016.
Full presser here and below the fold.
Good evening. My name is Greg Bretzing, and I am the Special Agent in Charge of the FBI in Oregon.
We have quite a bit of information to share with you tonight concerning the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.
First, I would like to confirm that as of this morning one more person left the refuge through a checkpoint. We believe there are four others who currently remain on the refuge. Since the establishment of checkpoints, a total of nine people have left the refuge. Of those, the FBI released six and arrested three.
Secondly, I would like to confirm that the FBI and Oregon State Police have narrowed the containment zones. This was done to make it more convenient for those who live and work in the immediate area of the refuge to go about their business. To this end, Highway 205 is now open in both directions.
There has been some media reporting that the situation at the refuge is resolved. That is NOT true. Again, we still believe there are occupiers on the refuge. The negotiators continue to work around the clock to talk to those four people in an effort to get them to come out peacefully.
Thirdly, we know there is quite a bit of interest related to the events as they occurred on Highway 395 on Tuesday afternoon. We know there are various versions of what occurred during this event: most inaccurate, some inflammatory. To that end, we want to do what we can to lay out an honest and unfiltered view of what happened and how it happened.
FBI agents and Oregon State Police troopers were involved in this operation. During this operation, OSP troopers utilized deadly force due to their proximity to LaVoy Finicum as the situation unfolded. Because of this, the Deschutes County Major Incident Team is conducting the outside review of the shooting per Oregon State law and established protocols. Because of that ongoing investigation, I will not be able to answer every question you have, but hopefully we will give the public some clarity as to what occurred.
At approximately 4:25 pm on Tuesday, January 26, 2016, FBI and OSP began a law enforcement action to bring into custody the people riding in two separate vehicles as they traveled between Burns and John Day. The FBI did have a plane in the air, and what I am about to show you is a video from that plane. A couple of notes about the video before we watch it.
The plane is following the vehicles, and the camera sometimes pans from one vehicle to the other, a white truck in front and a Jeep in back. At other times when the vehicles are in a fixed location, the plane is flying in a pattern over that location. Because of that flight pattern, there are portions where trees obscure what is happening. The details that I am about to provide to you are based both on an analysis of this video and some ground-level observations of agents and troopers on the scene.
Because the operation lasted more than 25 minutes, we are showing you two of the most pertinent clips today. The entire unedited video from the start of the traffic stop through the surrender of all individuals will be available to the media and the general public on the FBI’s YouTube channel.
Because I am using some very specific language to describe what is happening, the entire transcript of my comments will be posted to www.flashalertbend.net.
I want to caution you that the video does show the shooting death of LaVoy Finicum. We realize that viewing that piece of the video will be upsetting to some people, but we feel that it is necessary to show the whole thing unedited in the interest of transparency.
The video picks up a few seconds before the FBI and OSP vehicles pull in behind the jeep, the second vehicle in line. The jeep quickly pulls to a stop while the white truck, driven by LaVoy Finicum, continues some distance up the road. Some law enforcement vehicles stay with the Jeep while others continue following the white truck. Over a period of several minutes out of camera view, the following people exit the jeep without incident:
The driver, who was not charged and will not be named
Looking at the white truck, about four minutes into the video, Ryan Payne exits through a back door. It’s difficult to see behind the trees, but in the lower right hand corner you can see him with his hands up being approached by the law enforcement officers and being taken into custody.
There is a period of approximately three minutes and 47 seconds where the truck sits on the road. We have edited it for time here, but it is available in the raw, unedited version on the FBI’s YouTube channel. Throughout this time, agents and troopers are providing verbal commands to the occupants to surrender. We can’t comment on what may have been going on in the truck at this time, but those details may come out later as part of the overall shooting investigation.
When we come back to the video, the white truck leaves the scene at a high rate of speed. It travels some distance, quickly approaching a vehicle roadblock in the roadway.
As the white truck approaches the roadblock, there is a spike strip across the road but it appears Finicum missed it as he attempted to drive around the roadblock. He nearly hits an FBI agent as he maneuvers to the left. The truck gets stuck in the snowbank.
Finicum leaves the truck and steps through the snow. Agents and troopers on scene had information that Finicum and others would be armed. On at least two occasions, Finicum reaches his right hand toward a pocket on the left inside portion of his jacket. He did have a loaded 9 mm semi-automatic handgun in that pocket.
At this time, OSP troopers shot Finicum.
Approximately 30 seconds after the shooting, law enforcement officers at the scene deployed flash bangs to disorient any other armed occupants. Shortly after that, they deployed less-lethal sponge projectiles with OC capsules. Those OC capsules would be similar to pepper spray.
Over a period of several minutes agents and troopers worked to safely remove the remaining truck occupants, and to take them into custody. Those people included:
And another woman, who was not arrested and will not be named
As soon as the agents and troopers were confident that they had addressed any further threats, they provided medical assistance to Finicum. That happened about 10 minutes after the shooting.
Agents and troopers did find three other loaded weapons inside the truck. They included two loaded .223 caliber semi-automatic rifles. There was also one loaded .38 special revolver.
Again, you can see the rest of this unedited video on the FBI’s YouTube channel.
Finally, again, I want to acknowledge the stress and disruption that the occupation of the refuge has caused has to the people of Harney County. We know this is difficult. We know that you want this concluded as soon as possible. We are doing everything we can to bring this to a resolution safely and quickly.
Another Case of Disney Jihad?
You might recall the UK Muslims banned from entering the US for a supposed trip to Disney, in truth only one of the group was forbidden to travel.
The 28-year-old Paris resident was arrested as he tried to go through security at Disney’s Hotel New York, just outside the Paris-area amusement park, said Michel Le Prevost, deputy chief of criminal police of the city of Meaux.First of all why would a supposed devout Muslim want to visit such a den of Kuffar iniquity? I mean besides to kill the Kuffar?
The man was also carrying a Quran, Le Prevost said. The man, who was undergoing questioning after the arrest, was not known by police or intelligence services, Le Provost said.
A woman accompanying him was also arrested, Le Prevost said. Information about what accusations she faced wasn’t immediately available.
30 Years Since Challenger
Its been a long time, I can remember concern at the time that I would be upset. Many were watching live at schools all over the nation because of Christa McAuliffe. But I was a big space fan. I knew it was dangerous plus I was a bit older and did not see it live. So while the passing was sad, I wasn't really shocked that something went wrong.
There Has Been An Awakening
Jeff, he quit drinking.
Anyway Fox and Jawa have had torrid relationship. While Megyn was good on her daytime show, the prime time show is much more "editorial". If you catch my drift.
Basically our overall experience has been they are total dicks to deal with. They'll screw you over nine ways till Sunday too.
Anyway I find the most useful feature of FOXNEWS to be the crawler at teh bottom of the screen, leggy eye candy and the mute button.

Arrests Made One Killed in Oregon Standoff
There's a lot of chatter on this, best I can find on it is this from Raw Story.
elvin Lee, who said he was traveling with the group headed north up U.S. 395, said the first vehicle — which contained militant leader Ammon Bundy and his bodyguards, Brian “Booda” Cavalier and Mark McConnell — was stopped by law enforcement offices serving an arrest warrant.Expect this to continue to go wrong, The Feds will sooner or later assert themselves. Its just the way it is.
A second vehicle — which contained Ryan Bundy, Ryan Payne, Shawna Cox, Finicum and an unidentified 18-year-old woman — went around their stopped comrades’ vehicle but ran into a blockade about a mile away.
“There happened to be some arguments between the guys in the truck,” Lee said. “Somehow they got Ryan Payne pulled out of the truck, apparently. LaVoy had took off — he ended up hitting a snowbank, I guess, trying to get around the blockade. After he hit that snowbank, he came out of that truck and he charged at the law enforcement (officers) — as I understand it.”
But at least they are trying to avoid a Waco type clusterf*ck, avoiding direct confrontation against the camp and picking up those charged as they can.
I suppose both sides will hunker down now for the inevitable bad ending.

Sandcrawler PSA: Losing Not Winning
And if it requires destroying the GOP and electing a Democrat to teach the establishment this lesson, to chastise them and to humble them, then we shall do just that, and do so happily.Because the establishment won't support Trump so either Trump or Cruz will run third party. Thus repeating history with a Perot like failure if Cruz splits. Greater losses if Trump.
I've even read discussions on who is it better to lose with Trump or Cruz, the argument being Cruz is better if you're going to lose anyway, after all he's on the inside, if not getting much love there. But love IS for sale.
Most of the argument being that Trump is the rise of Hitler, or the death of either the Constitutional or Establishment wings of the party.
But wait. We forget that we carry majorities in both houses and look to gain if we win. But we'd rather blow that up than win? We've decided before the first vote is cast that we've lost? That either Sanders or Hillary will be President, they must be laughing their ass off.
The Truth is that after eight years of Obama, like eight years of Bill Clinton, the presidency is the Republican's to loose. Remember George Bush II? Um yeah.
Would Sanders sign the bills the conservative Congress sends? No. Hillary Clinton? Even Less so. As she is also invested in the perpetual partisan war of nothing gets done.
But if the Republicans win? Which we all agree we're not going to allow to happen AT ANY COST. Would Trump sign the bills?
Probably I would think for the most part.
Also since we carry the majority of both houses then just think of how much fun impeaching Trump will be if he gets out of hand.
You have to go with the populist candidate, you have to get those votes to win. That means Trump.
The real danger here is that for the ideologues things might actually get done. Things might get settled, then they are SOL. They will have to actually think of a new battle to fight rather than a perpetual war.
They would sacrifice progress the very things they are for or against to feed the battle over the things they are for or against.
This would all make sense if not for the simple fact that winning is better than losing. Getting things done is better than talking about things that should be done.
The Presidency and both Houses of Congress are ours if we JUST DON'T FOUL IT UP!
I'm pretty sure we're going to foul it up. In that case I'm with Ace. If Sanders or Hillary is President in 2017, blow it up man.
Hell I've even vote for Cruz or for Rusty Shackleford even, just win the damn thing.
They say, so you support Trump? No, I don't support politicians, I vote for them.

Cornhole Watch: Mohamed Elshinawy
Baltimore, Maryland – A federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Mohamed Elshinawy, age 30, of Edgewood, Maryland, with conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization; providing and attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization; terrorism financing; and making false statements in connection with a terrorism matter. The indictment was returned late on January 13, 2016.
The indictment was announced by U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein of the District of Maryland; Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin; and Special Agent in Charge Kevin Perkins of the FBI’s Baltimore Division.
“This case demonstrates how terrorists exploit modern technology to inculcate sympathizers and build hidden networks, but federal agents and prosecutors are working tirelessly and using every available lawful tool to disrupt their evil schemes,” said U.S. Attorney Rosenstein.
“According to the allegations in the indictment, Elshinawy conspired to provide material support to ISIL and received funds in order to carry out an attack,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin. “When confronted by the FBI, he lied in order to conceal his support for ISIL and the steps he took to provide material support to the deadly foreign terrorist organization. This indictment is the next step in holding Elshinawy accountable. The National Security Division remains committed to protecting the nation from terrorist threats, and we will continue to pursue and disrupt those who seek to provide material support to ISIL.”
The four-count indictment alleges that from February 2015 through about December 11, 2015, Elshinawy conspired with others to provide material support and resources, including personnel, services (including means and methods of communication) and financial services, to ISIL. Elshinawy and his co-conspirators utilized various methods of surreptitious and other forms of communication in order to conceal their criminal association, the substance of their communications and their criminal activities from law enforcement.
As part of the conspiracy, Elshinawy and Co-conspirator 1, an Egyptian national and childhood friend of Elshinawy, allegedly recruited and sought to recruit others to join ISIL and further its cause of violent jihad. Elshinwy and Coconspirator 1 also provided themselves as personnel to assist ISIL. The indictment alleges that on Feb. 17, 2015, during a discussion with Co-conspirator 1 over social media, Elshinawy pledged his allegiance to ISIL, described himself as its soldier, asked Co-conspirator 1 to convey his message of loyalty to ISIL leadership and commitment to perpetrating violent jihad. From March 11, 2015, through May 29, 2015, Elshinawy had several discussions over social media with an individual believed to be his brother, during which Elshinawy repeatedly encouraged his brother to join ISIL. During the conversations, Elshinawy also spoke of his support for ISIL and his desire to become a mujahideen and die as a martyr. Over the course of the conspiracy, Elshinawy and Co-conspirator 1 discussed obtaining or making an explosive device and possible targets.
To conceal his illegal activities, the indictment alleges that Elshinawy purchased a cell phone, which he registered under a fake name and address, to communicate securely with Co-conspirator 1 and other ISIL operatives. Elshinawy also directed his brother to take steps to conceal their communications regarding ISIL. In an effort to conceal his connection to ISIL operatives, Elshinawy removed the name of an ISIL sympathizer from his list of friends on his social media account and blocked Co-conspirator 1’s access to that same account.
According to the indictment, Elshinawy received money from overseas through transfers of funds by a company headquartered overseas into his online financial account, wire transfers and other methods to be used to conduct a terrorist attack on behalf of ISIL. On July 17, 2015, in an effort to conceal and minimize his criminal involvement with ISIL, Elshinawy falsely claimed to FBI agents that he had only received a total of $4,000 from an ISIL operative overseas, and later amended the statement by falsely claiming that he had received no more than $5,200 from the ISIL operative.
The maximum sentence for conspiracy to provide and for providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization is 15 years in prison; the maximum sentence for collection of terrorism financing is 20 years in prison; and the maximum sentence for making false statements in a terrorism matter is eight years in prison. If convicted, Elshinawy’s sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal history, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation. No court appearance has been scheduled. Elshinawy has been detained since his arrest on Dec. 11, 2015, on related charges.
An indictment is not a finding of guilt. An individual charged by indictment is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
United States Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein and Assistant Attorney General Carlin commended the FBI for its work in the investigation, and thanked Assistant U.S. Attorney Christine Manuelian of the District of Maryland who is prosecuting the case, with assistance provided by Trial Attorneys John Gibbs and Jason Denney of the National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section.

ISIS' Chaotic Fall Inevitable
The attacks in Iraq yesterday reflect a classic tactic used by its earlier brands of AQI and ISI random terrorist attacks against civilian targets where the object was to sew terror and get press but in military terms have little long term effect.
A series of bombing attacks and shootings across Iraq have left scores dead and dozens more wounded, security officials say.Any number of such attacks were carried out during the US presence and even later as the insurgent groups AQI and ISI was steadily losing ground.
At least 32 people were killed and 58 injured in an attack on the al-Jawhara shopping centre in the capital, Baghdad, on Monday, according to police sources.
The assailants charged into the mall after a car bomb exploded outside the building, located in the predominantly Shia neighbourhood of New Baghdad.
Wary Iraqis say US-led air strikes on ISIL are not working
Police regained control of the mall and officials said that all attackers had been killed.
This was the main innovation of ISIS after the US withdrawal, not to just carry out random terror attacks to but take and hold ground in a sustained way. Sure bombings still took place but often in the support of a larger goal.
Now that ISIS is starting to lose ground and is being hit from all sides it has reverted to the same tactic that it used when it had no Caliphate from which to act.
Its hard to call a bombing a good sign, but it is a sign that Islamic State can no longer act as a State and is returning to its roots a a scattered, fractured group, able to commit various acts of Murder but unable to fulfill its stated goal of a Caliphate.

al-Nusra Wired 600 Dollars to Sacramento Muslim From Damascus
Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab was arrested in Sacramento for material support of terrorism and attempting to travel to Syria to join al-Nusra.
Federal agents have arrested an Iraqi refugee in Sacramento on a charge that he lied to immigration authorities over his ties to terror groups and travel to Syria, where he allegedly fought before returning to the United States in 2014.
Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, an Iraqi-born Palestinian, is named in a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in federal court in Sacramento and unsealed late Thursday as word of his arrest began to spread.
Justice Department Presser Follows.
A Sacramento, California, resident was arrested today on a federal charge of making a false statement involving international terrorism. Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, is charged in a complaint that was unsealed today in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of California following his arrest. He will have his initial appearance tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. PST in Sacramento.
The arrest was announced by Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin, U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner of the Eastern District of California and Special Agent in Charge Monica M. Miller of the FBI’s Sacramento Division.
“Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab allegedly traveled overseas to fight alongside terrorist organizations and lied to U.S. authorities about his activities,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin. “The National Security Division’s highest priority is protecting the nation from terrorism, and we will continue to hold accountable those who seek to join or aid the cause of terrorism, whether at home or abroad.”
“According to the allegations in the complaint, the defendant traveled to Syria to take up arms with terrorist organizations and concealed that conduct from immigration authorities,” said U.S. Attorney Wagner. “While he represented a potential safety threat, there is no indication that he planned any acts of terrorism in this country. I commend the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force for their dedicated work on this matter.”
“In today’s complex terrorism environment, our Joint Terrorism Task Force plays an important role in combating the threat of terrorism. The collaboration is stronger than ever and essential to protect our communities from harm,” said Special Agent in Charge Miller. “The public plays an equal, if not more important, role in protecting the community. We encourage those who encounter individuals who express an intent to do harm or claim allegiance to a terrorist group – whether in person or online – to voice their concerns to law enforcement.”
According to the complaint, Al-Jayab is a Palestinian born in Iraq, who came to the United States as an Iraqi refugee in October 2012. Between October 2012 and November 2013, while living in Arizona and Wisconsin, he communicated over social media with numerous other individuals about his intent to return to Syria to fight for terrorist organizations. In those communications, according to the complaint, Al-Jayab discussed his previous experience with firearms and with fighting against the regime in Syria. On Nov. 9, 2013, he flew from Chicago to Turkey, and then traveled to Syria. Between November 2013 and January 2014, Al-Jayab allegedly reported on social media that he was in Syria fighting with various terrorist organizations, including Ansar al-Islam, a designated foreign terrorist organization since 2004. He returned to the United States on Jan. 23, 2014, and settled in Sacramento.
The complaint alleges that on Oct. 6, 2014, Al-Jayab was interviewed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and responded in the negative to numerous questions, including whether he had ever been a member of any rebel group or militia; whether he had ever provided material support for any person or group engaged in terrorist activity; and whether he had ever been a member of a group, or assisted in a group, which used or threatened the use of weapons against others. Al-Jayab also allegedly stated during the interview that he had traveled to Turkey in late 2013 and early 2014 to visit his grandmother. The complaint alleges that all of those answers were materially false.
If convicted, Al-Jayab faces a maximum statutory penalty of eight years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Any potential sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal history, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.
The charges are only allegations; the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
The ongoing investigation is being conducted by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jill Thomas of the Eastern District of California and Trial Attorney Andrew Sigler of the National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section.
Houston Refugee Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan Arrested For Material Support of al-Nusra/ISIL
What is interesting is that Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan was a legal permanent resident, he was caught lying about his connections to al-Nusra and ISIL when he applied for full citizenship.
Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, a Palestinian born in Iraq, has been charged in a three-count indictment alleging that he attempted to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Assistant Attorney General for National Security John P. Carlin, U.S. Attorney Kenneth Magidson of the Southern District of Texas, Special Agent in Charge Perrye K. Turner of the FBI’s Houston Division and Special Agent in Charge Brian M. Moskowitz of Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in Houston made the announcement.
The three-count indictment was returned on Jan. 6, 2016, and was unsealed today. He will have his initial appearance tomorrow at 10:00 a.m CST in Houston.
Al Hardan entered the United States as an Iraqi refugee on or about Nov. 2, 2009. He was granted legal permanent residence status on or about Aug. 22, 2011, and resides in Houston.
He is charged with one count each of attempting to provide material support to ISIL, procurement of citizenship or naturalization unlawfully and making false statements.
The indictment alleges that Al Hardan attempted to provide material support and resources, including training, expert advice and assistance, and personnel – specifically himself – to a known foreign terrorist organization. According to the allegations, he also knowingly responded, certified and swore untruthfully on his formal application when applying to become a naturalized U.S. citizen. He allegedly represented that he was not associated with a terrorist organization when, in fact, he associated with members and sympathizers of ISIL throughout 2014, according to the charges. The indictment further alleges that during an interview in October 2015, Al Hardan falsely represented that he had never received any type of weapons training, when he allegedly received automatic machine gun training.
The charge of attempting to provide material support to terrorists carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. The charge of false citizenship procurement carries a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison (if the offense was committed to facilitate an act of international terrorism). The charge of making false statements carries a maximum sentence of eight years in prison. If convicted, any potential sentence will be determined by the court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal history, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violation.
An indictment is merely a formal charging document and is not evidence of guilt. Every defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The charges are the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and HSI with the assistance of the Houston Police Department. Trial Attorney Kashyap Patel of the National Security Division’s Counterterrorism Section is prosecuting the case along with Assistant U.S. Attorney Ralph Imperato of the Southern District of Texas.

Shocking! Jew Hating OK on Facebook
Hell Facebook tried to get me murdered even though they had been notified that there were active threats against Jawa Report. They were more than glad to help the terrorists kill me.
My take s basically Facebook can FOCUS.
Awesome! Norks Get H Bomb
North Korea claims it has successfully detonated a miniaturised hydrogen bomb. The underground test took place on Wednesday at 10am local time (1.30am GMT/Wednesday 12.30pm AEDT/Tuesday 6.30pm ET) at a known nuclear test site at Punggye-ri, in the east of the country.There's nothing he can't f*ck up!
Pyongyang said the test and was “self-defence against the US having numerous and humongous nuclear weapons”. In a TV announcement it also said the test went “perfectly”. If true, this would be North Korea’s fourth nuclear test, and its first using a hydrogen bomb, significantly more powerful than an atomic bomb.
There has been no independent verification of North Korea’s claims. An artificial earthquake of magnitude 5.1 was detected close to Punggye-ri. The UN organisation monitoring the world for signs of nuclear testing confirmed it had detected “an unusual event in the Korean peninsula”, but some experts have cautioned that claims of a hydrogen bomb could be exaggerated.

Saudi Arabia Out Islams ISIS Executing 47 in Beheading Bash
Saudi Arabia proves that its more Islamic than ISIS by beheading 43 and executing 4 by firing squad. Word we get is that they ran short on Ethiopians to mop up the blood.
Anyway expect ISIS to attempt to out execute Saudi Arabia and Iran on video on the near future. Because one thing is for sure competition in the Islamic World is fierce.
Sandcrawler PSA: Terrorists Murdering Infidels Causes Islamophobia
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, I mean what do you expect? That when Muslims murder in cold blood the Kuffar community to send chocolates?
So the blame for the hate?
No there is nothing wrong with the Kuffar its 100% ISIS who generates hate for Muslims.
I mean there might be a sweeping wave of Presbyterian-o-phobia, the only thing that is missing is a large unprovoked attack by the John Knox Brigades.
Or as my spelling error says Islamophibia, which is the condition in which the media spend hours trying to convince infidels that its their fault Muslims murder them.

NJ Muslims Did Celebrate 9/11
"Some men were dancing, some held kids on their shoulders," said Gallagher, then a sergeant. "The women were shouting in Arabic and keening in the high-pitched wail of Arabic fashion. They were told to go back to their apartments since a crowd of non-Muslims was gathering on the sidewalk below and we feared for their safety."So the main focus here was in keeping the Muslims who were celebrating safe from any Americans who might take revenge. I'm not sure I can even comprehend how TFU that is.
Was it thousands? We can't be sure of that thousands thing, unless you're talking about those who died, 2,977, that we know.

Totally 100% Shocking News! Father of San Bernardino Terrorist Supports Destruction of Israel
Syed Farook provided an interview to the Italian newspaper La Stampa, where he said:See ya'll he's a moderate and well adjusted Muslim limiting his Jew hatred to the political sphere.My son said that he shared [IS leader Abu Bakr] Al Baghdadi’s ideology and supported the creation of the Islamic State. He was also obsessed with Israel.
I told him he had to stay calm and be patient because in two years Israel will not exist anymore. Geopolitics is changing: Russia, China and America don’t want Jews there any more. They are going to bring the Jews back to Ukraine. What is the point of fighting? We have already done it and we lost. Israel is not to be fought with weapons, but with politics. But he did not listen to me, he was obsessed.”
Um, yeah, BTW Carlos(above) is still in Federal Prison. He only has 209 months to go.
Update: Mommy too!
Rafia Farook, the mother of San Bernardino terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook, is an active member of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), a Muslim organization that promotes the establishment of a caliphate and has ties to a radical Pakistani political group called Jamaat-e-Islami.
Farook’s affiliation with ICNA was revealed on Friday when MSNBC and other new outlets scoured the Farooks’ apartment in Redlands, Cal. An MSNBC reporter found a certificate of appreciation presented to Safia Farook last summer by ICNA’s sisters’ wing.

Shocking! Islamic State Praises San Bernardino Jihadis
Of course ISIS will claim it, no matter their degree of involvement. Remember ISIS propaganda is designed to create these independent cells, just like AQ cells but self supported.
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (Reuters) - Islamic State said on Saturday that a married couple who killed 14 people in California in an attack the FBI is investigating as an "act of terrorism" were followers of the militant group based in Syria and Iraq.It would not matter one lick which Muslim blew his top ISIS would claim it. But there can be little doubt that Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik knew this and intended to act on their behalf.
The group's declaration, in an online radio broadcast comes three days after U.S.-born Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his spouse, Tashfeen Malik, 29, a native of Pakistan, carried out the attack on a holiday party for civil servants in San Bernardino, about 60 miles (100 km) east of Los Angeles.
The two died hours later in a shootout with police.
These operate with little or no support from any group, the wife is from an area that is known for its LeT activity.
Pakistani officials consider the area Malik's family lives as a center of support for groups like Lashkar-e-Taiba https://t.co/TJkDOBINyR— El_Grillo (@El_Grillo1) December 5, 2015
LeT was responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Muslima Tashfeen Malik Posts Allegiance to ISIS During Attack
CNN)Investigators think that as the San Bernardino, California, attack was happening, female shooter Tashfeen Malik posted a pledge of allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Facebook, three U.S. officials familiar with the investigation told CNN.Shocking!
(We hear posting the Muslima's picture may be offensive.
If you find the Muslima's image offensive we recommend you pour bleach in your eyes.
On the other hand its now clear why Syed wanted to die.)
Malik's post was made on an account with a different name, one U.S. official said. The officials did not explain how they knew Malik made the post.
A law enforcement official said it appeared that Wednesday's attack -- which left 14 people dead and 21 wounded before the two attackers, Malik and her husband, Syed Rizwan Farook, were killed in a shootout with police -- may have been inspired by ISIS. But none of the officials said that ISIS directed or ordered the attack.

Attack in San Bernardino (Terrorism Earlier named Perpetrator Syed Farook Involved)
Authorities in San Bernardino, California, responded Wednesday to reports of an active shooter or more than one shooter.There are reports of more than one shooter, which would indicate terrorism but those are not confirmed. So far as I can tell the target is some sort of rehabilitation facility.
There were reports from the sheriff's department that there were one to three suspects. The fire department said it was responding to a "20 victim shooting incident."
Inland Regional Center's Facebook page says it employs nearly 670 staff at its facilities in San Bernardino and Riverside counties, providing services to more than 30,200 people.I'll update as more information becomes available.
It aims to "work on a personal, one-on-one basis with people with developmental disabilities to make their lives better as they define it."
Update: 05:30 cst: One suspect in custody, just taken. 14 dead,
14 17 wounded.
The attack may have been on some sort of conference. But what meeting is unknown.
Now a second suspect and and officer down two miles away. the one scene the car is a black pickup with a camper shell or SUV.
Also Brian Ross reports another suspect hurt or dead in the truck.
If there are indeed three suspects the possibility it is an ISIS Paris style attack goes up. The possibility is is a lone left or right wing quack goes down.
Confirmed three suspects, two of whom are dead in custody.
Update: Now one suspect at large, not in custody.
Heavy: Syed Farook has been identified as one of the suspected gunmen in the Wednesday morning shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California, according to CBS News
The Los Angeles Times, citing federal law enforcement sources, says one of the gunmen may have been at the Inland Regional Center earlier in the day and after leaving angrily, returned with one or two other men:.
There is a lot of chitchat today about motive, I suppose the details of the confrontation will bear this out. As for a planned attack, due to the equipment and bombs its quite possible there was planning for some sort of future attack.
If the earlier confrontation was part of the plan or resulted in a change of plan due to Baby Jesus offending Farook causing Sudden Jihad Syndrome will take some time to figure out.
Whatever, the message from Farook is Baby Jesus parties are haram.
If you must understand how to get along with the radical side if Islam, I recommend The Quiet Man.
That is to stay if you stand and fight and earn respect, in the end you have a both friends and respect.

The New America! Offensive Bibles!
You know what’s also bad manners? Being such an insufferable douchebag that the mere sight of a Bible causes a meltdown.Guests seeking a Bible at Northern Illinois University‘s campus hotel now must call the front desk after a secular group complained that the sacred scripture had no place in the nightstand.Sigh.......
Out: Moderate Muslims
In: Jihadi John Beautiful, Kind and Humble
Despite allegedly banning journalists Mona Eltahawy, London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is proudly hosting Asim Qureshi of the Salafist ‘human rights’ group CAGE tonight at an event called “Islamophobia and British values”.So wonder what CAGE has been up to. It seems they are all aflutter at the prospects for funding after a recent court ruling.
Mr. Qureshi has personally described the ISIS executioner Jihadi John as a “beautiful”, “kind” and “humble” man.
Liberal Muslim Ms. Eltahawy is unpopular with many conservative Muslims after writing books such as Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution and speaking out against sexual violence in the Islamic world and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in her native Egypt
