In case you haven’t been keeping up with the news here’s real Benghazigate info on the dishonesty of the current Dem Party frontrunner for its POTUS nomination – Hillary Clinton - and the dishonesty of the Administration of President Barack Hussein Obama (Actually Benghazi is just one of many cover-ups by these two).

 

Americans voted Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 brainwashed by the Left oriented American media that his Marxist and Black Liberation Movement influences were either irrelevant or racist lies. Obama was the Liar. In 2012 Obama and his cadres fabricated a story Benghazi lie and American voters bought the lie again. NOW co-liar conspirator Hillary Clinton is denying Benghazi wrongs, her cadres are lying for her AGAIN and the Left oriented media is AGAIN soft pedaling Hillary lies.

 

Will a majority of Americans AGAIN put a liar in Office just to say they voted for a woman?

Newly Released Emails Cast Doubt on Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Claims

By Sharyl Attkisson

May 22, 2015

The Daily Signal

 

Newly reported emails indicate Hillary Clinton was personally made aware of security dangers in the months leading up to the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. That’s according to the House Benghazi Committee, which has obtained 300 long-sought emails from the State Department among tens of thousands under subpoena.

 

The Benghazi Committee says there are a number of emails in which State Department personnel specifically passed along security issues to Clinton in 2011 and 2012 before the attacks. An August 2012 email to then-Secretary of State Clinton from one of her top aides, Jake Sullivan, referred to “some warning signs” regarding the deteriorating security situation.

 

Benghazi Bombshell: Clinton State Department Official Reveals Details of Alleged Document Review

 

Clinton has long denied being in the loop about mounting dangers in Benghazi and her agency’s rejection of security requests from U.S. personnel, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who was killed in the attacks. Though Clinton was sent multiple cables about security prior to the assaults, she explained that she got far too many to read.

 

“They are all addressed to me,” Clinton told the House Foreign Affairs Committee in January 2013. “They do not all come to me. They are reported through the bureaucracy.”

 

The newly reported emails differ from the cables in that they were sent directly to Clinton’s personal email server and, in some cases, were from one of her top aides.

 

Another question raised by the newly provided emails is whether there was any improper handling of sensitive government information on her personal server. Experts say personal servers lack the strictest level of security and risk being compromised by U.S. enemies.

 

Last March, Clinton told reporters, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.”

 

But today, it was reported that a portion of at least one email provided to Congress is considered so sensitive that the FBI has since classified it to prohibit its public release.

 

Today, Clinton responded by saying, “I’m aware the FBI has asked that a portion of one email be held back … but that doesn’t change the fact that all of the information in the emails was handled appropriately.”

Clinton also told reporters today, “I’m glad the emails are starting to come out. … I’ve asked to be done for a long time. … I want people to be able to see all of them … it is the fact that we have released all of them that have any government relationship whatsoever.”

 

Gowdy says he is not confident the committee will get all relevant material, because Clinton has acknowledged deleting 30,000 emails that she said were personal in nature.

 

“To assume a self-selected public record is complete, when no one with a duty or responsibility to the public had the ability to take part in the selection, requires a leap in logic no impartial reviewer should be required to make and strains credibility,” said Gowdy in a statement today.

 

Gowdy added that there are “inexplicable gaps” in the secretary’s emails during key times of her involvement in Libya policy including:

 

  • June 10-Aug. 8, 2011—Time period where Clinton was heavily involved in Libya policy.

 

  • Sept. 14-Oct. 21, 2011—Dates of Clinton’s trip to Libya, when the now-famous picture of Clinton on her blackberry was taken

 

  • Oct. 21, 2011-Jan. 5, 2012—Time period when the State Department was extending the Benghazi mission for another year

 

  • April 27- July 4, 2012—Time period of increased security during which an IED was thrown at the compound blasting a hole through the wall and during which the British ambassador was attacked

 

Four Americans, including Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty and Sean Smith, were killed in the Benghazi attacks.

Benghazi: The Truth Trickles Out

Allegations that the Obama administration lied to the American people about the Benghazi terrorist attack have been in the air for the last three years, but new information shows that these allegations have a lot more bite to them than Obama and Hillary Clinton would like the public to believe.

 

Two days after terrorists besieged the U.S. embassy in Libya, Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal sent her a memo that repudiated the idea that the attack was the result of a video critical of Islam. According to the memo, there was ample evidence that the attack had been planned by an Al Qaeda affiliate that was merely using the protests as a coverup.

 

“We should get this around ASAP,” Clinton reportedly told a close adviser after reading the memo. But there was apparently a change of heart, because U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice went on the Sunday shows a few days later, still spreading the story that the Benghazi attack was an outgrowth of the protests.

 

Later, of course, the State Department and the president were forced to acknowledge that there had been no protests in Benghazi on the day of the attack. Officials and analysts continue to debate how much of a role – if any – the video played in the attack, but it is known to a certainty that it was not the whole catalyst. There is, in fact, much more evidence that the attack was planned as a retaliation for a drone strike that killed an Al Qaeda strategist in Pakistan.

 

The American people deserve to know why the Obama administration tried to silence the truth about this attack. Were they trying to deflect blame? Avoid allegations of incompetence? Or was it something more sinister? Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, and perhaps even Barack Obama himself need to answer for these discrepancies, and Congress should accept nothing less than their full cooperation with the investigation. The more we dig beneath the surface on this tragedy, the more it stinks.

 

It is most unfortunate that the word Benghazi has come to be associated with a right-wing witch hunt in the eyes of the public. Democrats have been successful in denying any culpability, insisting that this is nothing more than political gamesmanship. With the full compliance of the mainstream media, they have brainwashed the voters into believing a lie. And that lie deserves to be exposed.

 

We’re used to a certain amount of shadiness when it comes to Washington politics, but when American military men and women are dead, we must not stop until we get to the bottom of this coverup. This is about much more than emails, private servers, and multiple devices. This is about secrecy and deception at the highest levels of the U.S. government. And until we know why it happened, no one should think for a moment about voting for Hillary Clinton.

A boy gets to go backstage at the circus. Amidst all the wonders, it is the circus’s elephant that surprises him the most. Out there, under the big top, the elephant had appeared mighty and glorious. To see him now, tied to a weak railroad stake in the ground by nothing more than a frayed length of rope, the boy is confused.

 

“Why does he stay?” the boy asks the handler.

 

“He doesn’t know his own strength,” the handler replies. “He’s been tied to that spike since he was just a little fella. He learned a long time ago…that’s just the way it is. He don’t try to escape now.”

 

Our government is like that railroad spike. We’ve grown so accustomed to the great might of the federal government that we hardly question it anymore. Some of us may not even understand that we are being held captive at all.

 

At its outset, the role of the government was to protect its people. Protect them from foreign and domestic harm, protect their (inalienable) rights from being encroached upon, and protect their ability to pursue life, liberty, and happiness. The current federal government goes well beyond those basic tenets. The U.S. government in the 21st century is a provider. It provides …

For the most part the majority of Christians residing in Pakistan are poverty stricken of hold jobs a Muslim would consider beneath their dignity. And yet there some well-to-do Christians in Pakistan. Unfortunately many of the better off Christians are in the pocket or under the thumb of the ruling Muslim elites of Pakistan. This creates a gap between the more numerous impoverished Christians and Christians under a better living environment. Shamim Masih writes about this social injustice which is perpetuated by the Islamic Supremacist minded Muslims of Pakistan.

 

Pakistan Population – Muslim and Christian

 

Total Population: 196,174,380 (July 2014 estimation – Theodora.com)

 

Sunni Percentage: 85-90% (Theodora.com) Doing the calculator at 90%: 176,556,942 Sunnis

 

Christian Population: 2.8 Million (NYT 3/24/15) Using the Theodora.com total population that is 1.4% of the total.

 

Keeping in mind the statistical proportions between Sunni Muslims and Christians, digest the gravity in these few paragraphs on win1040.com looking specifically at Pakistan:

 

This increased persecution has caused panic. Over 16,000 Christians have fled, seeking asylum in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Thailand. In an attempt to end this mass exodus, authorities illegally removed more than 1000 Pakistani Christians from their flights in Islamabad, Karachi, and Lahore. Sri Lanka has detained them as refugees.
 

The nation of Pakistan has moved to number 8 on the 2014 Open Doors World Watch List of the worst persecutors of Christians in the world. Window International Network Partners pray for Pakistan on Day 28 in accordance with the Praying Through the Window 9: Global Terrorism and World Religions prayer calendar.

UNITED and HUMBLE

 

By Shamim Masih

ISLAMABAD: Everything rises and falls on leadership, said Pastor Henry Madava. Nelson Mandela, who led South Africa from apartheid to democracy, was a humble, persuasive and inspirational figure who advocated peace, democracy and human rights. He said, “Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice for the freedom of their people.” After years of being accused of surrounding himself with Old Etonians, David Cameron moved to shed his image for being out of touch with a “Blue Collar” reshuffle. The Prime Minister promoted a slate of school-educated ministers to key roles as he unveiled his first Conservative-only government. Son of a Pakistani bus driver and daughter of a Ugandan shopkeeper who fled Idi Amin are two big winners in “Blue Collar” reshuffles. There was also promotion for comprehensive schoolboy Greg Clark, who becomes Communities Secretary, while campaigning backbencher Robert Halfon becomes Conservative party deputy chairman.  Cameron moves to promote ministers from non-privileged backgrounds.

 

Since my childhood, I dreamed of the day to have a contented and prosperous life, but today, my dream didn’t turn the way I imagined it, but there is nothing I can do about it. This is how Pakistani Christian communities’ lives look today, and we have to adopt. Christians represent just a sliver of the population of Pakistan. Major portions of the Christians’ population settled in the outskirts of the cities with dirt roads and cement-block homes. Most face daily discrimination and eke out a living by holding low-paying jobs, like street sweeping. However, they’ve carved out their own lives in the country that faces near-daily attacks by the extremists. Under Pakistan’s harsh blasphemy laws, anyone can be convicted of insulting Islam or the Prophet Muhammad. Muslims often take the law into their own hands, killing those suspected of blasphemy and attacking neighborhoods. Yet despite these worries, life goes on for Christians here. But I wish to attract your attention to very serious problem and I hope you will take some positive steps. The problem is non-visionary Christian leadership in Pakistan.

 

Pakistani Christian Politicians: When I was school boy, I saw Julius Salik [Wikipedia & WMA], who had enjoyed the protocol sitting in the flag staff car but has done nothing [Pakistan Christian Post] for the betterment of Christians. He was the only candidate, who received the highest number of votes during the general election [toward the] end [of the] eighties and had enjoyed during Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto' regime. Then we have seen many names sitting in federal and provisional assembly. During the care taker government Col. (R) Tressler [Pakistan Christian Post] had enjoyed many times during care taker tenure but instead of doing anything good for majority Christians he had tried his best to damage the Christian cause. Many unnecessary and unlawful favors were given to his family members during his tenure. During the most recent tenure, Shahbaz Bhatti was selected by the PPP government as Federal Minister for minorities. He was assassinated [Dawn] by the extremist group for being outspoken against blasphemy law. But practically neither he has taken any solid step nor done anything for community. I am not commenting on his life style he led but there is question mark as well. Nothing [was] solid work for [the Christian] community left behind his death. Rather after his death his successor wasted the offer to establish educational institution for Christians in the country. Since president Musharaf introduced the selection system on minority reserved seats in the parliament house, Christian selected members have become a rubber stamp that create fake arguments for the betterment of the community, while in the secrecy of the corridors of power they tow the line of the ruling elite.  Now we have Christian political leadership sitting in or outside the government with no vision, no commitment, and no inspirational figure is seen in this arena. The irony is that the Christian leadership has become a lame duck and is doing nothing to serve their community.

 

Christian Missionaries in Pakistan: Recently I read news that a Sikh removes turban to help injured child, showed true meaning of the religion. The turban is an integral part of Sikhism and is worn by many Sikhs as a symbol of love and dedication to the faith, the Sikh Coalition notes. Sikhs ties their turbans each day a commitment to the religion. Those who choose to wear turbans do not remove them in public. On the other hand, Pakistani Christians are facing many problems and suffering but our clergy never bothered to think the solutions of it, instead they are involved immoral activities. I am eye witness that during the twin churches attack in Youhanabad, father Francis Gulzar was laughing while entering in the graveyard during the funeral ceremony of the martyrs’.  Poverty is a big problem in our country, many of them have no money or not enough money to get food, clothes and get education for their children. There are many educational institutions that are run or managed by Christian missionaries. But unfortunately our religious leadership is least interested to educate the Christian children. Instead they are engage in selling church properties and earning money in the name of God. Many church leaders and their families are not religious or not leading life according to the teaching of Christ but they teach Christianity. Former Bishop of Lahore, Alexander John Malik [Pakistan Christian Post] and Bishop of Karachi, Sadiq Daniel [Express Tribune, Pakistan Christian Poster: HERE & HERE] has been involved in illegal activities and thus defaming Christian norms. Christian institutions run by Roman Catholic and Church of Pakistan are not taking Christian students for they can’t pay high fees. Christian politicians sitting in the government and clergy in Lahore has reportedly played reprehensible role in Youhanabad incident. These are the same ones who have done nothing when Joseph Colony and Gojra incident accrued.

 

Removing barriers to success like discrimination and divisions is a necessity for success. There are many young ones dreaming of the day to have a contented and prosperous life like me. People in leadership role can help them seek out and capitalize on more opportunities, find solutions to challenges before problems and create a happier, healthier, more productive life. There is urgent need to establish equality, social justice and peace. In reference to the ongoing persecution and discrimination [of thee] suffering Christian, it is duty of the leadership to take a stand to save the rights of the community to prove themselves the real leaders, "Humble and United".

 

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih

VIDEO: US Intel knew about weapons going from Benghazi to Syria Breaking News 5/18/2015

[Blog Editor: In case you missed the import of this info the Most Watched Videos poster repeats same interview twice]

 

 

Largely thanks to Judicial Watch (JW), the Barack Hussein Obama Administration is being exposed to a nefarious cover-up which includes the current Dem Party front runner Hillary Clinton. America’s Liar-in-Chief has been smoking gun proven he was aware that a Benghazi attack was imminent on September 11, 2012. And it is now proven by documentation the Obama Administration was secretly transferring deposed Qaddafi weapons from Libya to Syrian rebels fighting Bashar Assad. The unproven matter is whether those weapons ended up with American backed Syrian rebels or Islamic purist rebels related to al Qaeda and some of which evolved into ISIS.

 

This is a cover-up because BHO acted surprised about the Benghazi attacked and then proceeded to blame an obscure movie trailer showing Mo in a negative light. After the fake blame game the Obama Administration had the film maker (now-a-days known as Mark Basseley Youssef) arrested in 2012 for breaking probation from a previous prison release. Apparently Mr. Youssef (an Egyptian Coptic Christian by profession of faith) has a history of tax evasion and con artist fraud schemes. Perhaps Obama new a fellow fraudster to blame to take eyes off his 2012 campaign for President.

 

It is my personal opinion that Obama and his minions went to such an effort to cover-up the truth about Benghazi to make sure the American voters elected him to a second term as President. Although I suspect the same bumbling GOP campaign staffers that failed to emphasize Obama’s deficiencies in both campaigns that elected Obama to POTUS in 2008 would also have failed to push the fact that Obama and Hillary lied and people died. I mean the Dems had no problem in debasing Bush’s reputation with warped facts by saying Bush lied and people died. Dear God in Heaven I pray the next round of GOP campaigners are bright enough to expose the Obama lies against whoever ultimately wins the Dem nomination in 2016.

 

In order to properly disseminate the news on the Obama/Hillary lies below you will find several cross posts reporting the implications of the JW FOIA documents recently released for public consumption.

New docs reveal administration knew about Benghazi 10 days before attack

Judicial Watch’s latest FOIA efforts pack a big punch

 

Posted By Kemberlee Kaye

May 18, 2015 at 7:30pm

Legal Insurrection

I’m struggling to concoct a scenario more damning than this.

 

After filing a FOIA suit, thanks to a court order Judicial Watch obtained documents from the Department of Defense and Department of State which indicate the Obama administration knew al Qaeda was planning the attack in Benghazi ten days before it happened. TEN DAYS.

 

Immediately following the 9/11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in 2012, the DOD had identified the culprits and indicated the attack had been planned “ten days or more” prior.

 

A Defense Department document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), dated September 12, 2012, the day after the Benghazi attack, details that the attack on the compound had been carefully planned by the BOCAR terrorist group “to kill as many Americans as possible.” The document was sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Obama White House National Security Council. The heavily redacted Defense Department “information report” says that the attack on the Benghazi facility “was planned and executed by The Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR).” The group subscribes to “AQ ideologies:”

 

The attack was planned ten or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing of Aboyahiye ((ALALIBY)) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 atacks (sic) on the World Trade Center buildings.

 

“A violent radical,” the DIA report says, is “the leader of BCOAR is Abdul Baset ((AZUZ)), AZUZ was sent by ((ZAWARI)) to set up Al Qaeda (AQ) bases in Libya.” The group’s headquarters was set up with the approval of a “member of the Muslim brother hood movement…where they have large caches of weapons. Some of these caches are disguised by feeding troughs for livestock. They have SA-7 and SA-23/4 MANPADS…they train almost every day focusing on religious lessons and scriptures including three lessons a day of jihadist ideology.”

 

The Defense Department reported the group maintained written documents, in “a small rectangular room, approximately 12 meters by 6 meters…that contain information on all of the AQ activity in Libya.”

 

(Azuz is again blamed for the Benghazi attack in an October 2012 DIA document.)

 

But that’s not the end. Evidently, the administration was also aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to rebel troops in Syria.

 

The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria. The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.

 

Intelligence should be tracking who is shipping arms to whom, but according to Judicial Watch, this is the first documentation that shows the administration had constructive knowledge of the arms shipments.

 

Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.

 

During the immediate aftermath of, and following the uncertainty caused by, the downfall of the ((Qaddafi)) regime in October 2011 and up until early September of 2012, weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles located in Benghazi, Libya were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the ports of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The Syrian ports were chosen due to the small amount of cargo traffic transiting these two ports. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo.

 

Of course the State Department has yet to turn over any documents from Hillary’s secret email accounts, as Judicial Watch notes.

 

The release of this information ahead of Hillary’s Congressional hearing will certainly serve to draw even more scrutiny to the former Secretary of State’s involvement in the Benghazi cover-up. Revelations like these exposed by Judicial Watch’s FOIA suit underscore the necessity of a forensic investigation of Hillary’s private email servers.

 

If ever there was a time to unearth all of those “deleted” emails, that time is now.

Military intel predicted rise of ISIS in 2012, detailed arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria

 

By Catherine Herridge

Published May 18, 2015

Fox News

 

Seventeen months before President Obama dismissed the Islamic State as a "JV team," a Defense Intelligence Agency report predicted the rise of the terror group and likely establishment of a caliphate if its momentum was not reversed.

 

While the report was circulated to the CIA, State Department and senior military leaders, among others, it's not known whether Obama was ever briefed on the document.

 

The DIA report, which was reviewed by Fox News, was obtained through a federal lawsuit by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch. Documents from the lawsuit also reveal a host of new details about events leading up to the 2012 Benghazi terror attack -- and how the movement of weapons from Libya to Syria fueled the violence there.

 

The report on the growing threat posed by what is now known as the Islamic State was sent on Aug. 5, 2012.

 

The report warned the continued deterioration of security conditions would have "dire consequences on the Iraqi situation," and huge benefits for ISIS -- which grew out of Al Qaeda in Iraq.

 

"This creates the ideal atmosphere for AQI (Al Qaeda in Iraq) to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi," the document states, adding "ISI (Islamic State of Iraq) could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory."

 

ISIS would, in June 2014, go on to declare a caliphate in territory spanning Iraq and Syria, in turn drawing more foreign fighters to their cause from around the world.

 

CLICK TO READ THE DOCUMENTS GIVEN TO JUDICIAL WATCH FROM THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT AND STATE DEPARTMENT

 

Also among the documents is a heavily redacted DIA report that details weapons operations inside Libya before the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi. The Oct. 5, 2012 report leaves no doubt that U.S. intelligence agencies were fully aware that lethal weapons were being shipped from Benghazi to Syrian ports.

 

The report said: "Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the Port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG's, and 125 mm and 155 mm howitzers missiles."

 

Current and former intelligence and administration officials have consistently skirted questions about weapons shipments, and what role the movement played in arming extremist groups the U.S. government is now trying to defeat in Syria and Iraq.

 

In an interview with Fox News' Bret Baier broadcast May 11, former Acting CIA Director Michael Morell, deflected questions:

 

Baier: Were CIA officers tracking the movement of weapons from Libya to Syria?

 

Morell: I can't talk about that.

 

Baier: You can't talk about it?

 

Morell: I can't talk about it.

 

Baier: Even if they weren't moving the weapons themselves, are you saying categorically that the U.S. government and the CIA played no role whatsoever in the movement of weapons from Libya... 

 

Morell: Yes.

 

Baier: -- to Syria?

 

Morell: We played no role.  Now whether we were watching other people do it, I can't talk about it.

 

While the DIA report was not a finished intelligence assessment, such Intelligence Information Reports (IIRs) are vetted before distribution, a former Pentagon official said.

 

The October 2012 report may also be problematic for Hillary Clinton, who likewise skirted the weapons issue during her only congressional testimony on Benghazi in January 2013. In an exchange with Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who is now a Republican candidate for president, the former secretary of state said, "I will have to take that question for the record. Nobody's ever raised that with me."

 

Referring to Fox News' ongoing reporting that a weapons ship, Al Entisar, had moved weapons from Libya to Turkey with a final destination of Syria in September 2012, Paul responded, "It's been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons." He asked whether the CIA annex which came under attack on Sept. 11, 2012 was involved in those shipments.

 

Clinton answered: "Well, senator, you'll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. I will see what information is available."

 

In a follow-up letter, the State Department Office of Legislative Affairs provided a narrow response to the senator's question, and did not speak to the larger issue of weapons moving from Libya to Syria.

 

"The United States is not involved in any transfer of weapons to Turkey," the February 2013 letter from Thomas B. Gibbons, acting assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs, said.

 

Heavily redacted congressional testimony, declassified after the House intelligence committee Benghazi investigation concluded, shows conflicting accounts were apparently given to lawmakers.

 

On Nov. 15 2012, Morell and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified "Yes" on whether the U.S. intelligence community was aware arms were moving from Libya to Syria. This line of questioning by Republican Rep. Devin Nunes, who is now the intelligence committee chairman, was shut down by his predecessor Mike Rogers, R-Mich., who said not everyone in the classified hearing was "cleared" to hear the testimony, which means they did not have a high enough security clearance.

 

An outside analyst told Fox News that Rogers' comments suggest intelligence related to the movement of weapons was a "read on," and limited to a very small number of recipients.

 

Six months later, on May 22, 2013, Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, now chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, asked if the CIA was "monitoring arms that others were sending into Syria." Morell said, "No, sir."

 

The Judicial Watch documents also contain a DIA report from Sept. 12, 2012. It indicates that within 24 hours of the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty at the CIA annex, there were strong indicators that the attack was planned at least a week in advance, and was retaliation for a June 2012 drone strike that killed an Al Qaeda strategist -- there is no discussion of a demonstration or an anti-Islam video, which were initially cited by the Obama administration as contributing factors.

 

"The attack was planned ten or more days prior to approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for the US killing of Aboyahiye (Alaliby) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center buildings."

 

The DIA report also states a little-known group, "Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman," claimed responsibility, though the group has not figured prominently in previous congressional investigations. The document goes on to say the group's leader is Abdul Baset, known by the name Azuz, "sent by (Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri) to set up Al Qaeda bases in Libya."

 

"The Obama administration says it was a coincidence that it occurred on 9/11. In fact, their intelligence said it wasn't a coincidence and in fact specifically the attack occurred because it was 9/11," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News.

BOMBSHELL: What Was Just Revealed About Benghazi Gives Gowdy EXPLOSIVE New Fuel Against Hillary

A potentially damning memo from the Defense Intelligence Agency...

 

By Norvell Rose

May 19, 2015 at 9:27am

Western Journalism

 

Given the bombshell revelation about Benghazi that’s just been pried loose from the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton’s anticipated appearance before the House Select Committee investigating the deadly attack in Libya could prove to be even more explosive and potentially damaging for the Democrats’ leading presidential contender. Mrs. Clinton is expected to testify sometime this summer before the panel headed by GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy, reportedly after the State Department has provided the committee with a number of requested documents relating to the former secretary of state’s tenure.

 

Now, a potentially damning new document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) — a memo obtained by Judicial Watch after a court challenge to obtain its release — clearly shows that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not disclose to the public credible intelligence that terrorists had planned for an attack on the Benghazi compound, even as she and other administration officials blamed the deadly assault on an amateur video. The Daily Caller provides details of the latest revelation showing that Clinton participated in an apparent cover up of believable intel while misleading the American people, and quite possibly congressional investigators as well:

 

A heavily redacted copy of a Sept. 12, 2012, Defense Intelligence Agency memo to Clinton, then Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, the White House National Security Council and the Joint Chiefs of Staff said “the attack was planned 10 or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing of Aboyahiye ((ALALIBY)) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 atacks (sic) on the World Trade Center buildings.”

 

And it wasn’t as though the DIA-provided intelligence was late in arriving on Mrs. Clinton’s State Department desk. The memo unearthed by Judicial Watch shows it was given to Clinton and other senior administration officials the day after the September 11, 2012, attack that took the lives of four Americans. As Breitbart News notes, “The details of the memo present an alternative explanation for the Benghazi attack that was given short shrift by the Obama administration after the attack. Instead, the State Department and the White House chose to emphasize a ‘demonstration’ (which it turned out had never happened) held in connection with a YouTube video critical of Islam.”

 

To understand why the Obama administration was so intent on pushing the anti-Islam video explanation of the Benghazi attack, one must remember that Barack Obama was running for reelection in September of 2012 in what seemed at the time to be a close race. For it to appear that his administration ignored or downplayed evidence that a coordinated terror attack had been in the works in Benghazi might have helped put Mitt Romney in the White House.

 

Ironically, considering the new information in the just-released DIA memo — and the potential it has for lighting an even hotter fire under Hillary Clinton when she is put on Trey Gowdy’s congressional hot seat — it may turn out that Benghazi drives a big, sharp nail in the coffin of Mrs. Clinton’s bid to be the next Democrat to occupy the Oval Office.

Clinton email mess multiplies with allegations over 2nd email address

 

By FoxNews.com

May 19, 2015

Fox News

FoxNews.com's Judson Berger contributed to this report.

 

The Hillary Clinton email mystery took yet another confusing turn Tuesday with accusations from Republicans that the former secretary of state "misled" the public about her email practices, by using multiple "secret" addresses despite claims to the contrary.

 

However, a spokesman with the House committee probing the 2012 Benghazi attack, and Clinton's handling of it, would not go so far. Rather, he told FoxNews.com the confusion only further underscores the need to subject Clinton's private server to a third-party analysis, saying that's the only way to resolve this.

 

The questions over multiple Clinton addresses were raised after emails were published as part of a lengthy New York Times report on Clinton confidante Sidney Blumenthal's memos on Libya before and after the fall of Muammar Qaddafi. The emails show Clinton writing from the address, hrod17@clintonemail.com. This is distinct from the other address she has acknowledged using as secretary of state, hdr22@clintonemail.com.

 

"Hillary Clinton misled public about the use of only one secret email address," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus tweeted in reference to the documents, while promoting an RNC memo outlining the alleged discrepancies.

 

This, however, is not the first time the 'hrod17' address has turned up. The House committee investigating the Benghazi attacks earlier this year said it had records showing "two separate and distinct email addresses" from Clinton, and requested documents from both the 'hrod17' and 'hdr22' accounts.

 

At the time, Clinton's lawyer and office attributed the appearance of two email addresses to a simple mix-up.

 

They maintained Clinton only used "one email account" as secretary of state, and that the 'hrod17' account did not exist during her tenure. They said she only launched that account in early 2013, after her prior address was published online.

 

As for why both email addresses were turning up in records, her office explained that the new email address (the 'hrod17' account) happened to show up on printed copies of old documents because it was the same account -- but it did not exist at the time.

 

FoxNews.com has reached out to Clinton's office asking if the emails published by The New York Times reflect a similar situation.

 

However, the spokesman for the Benghazi committee told FoxNews.com it's simply not clear whether the multiple emails reflect a glitch -- or prove Clinton really was using two email addresses, contrary to what her office claims. Spokesman Jamal Ware said in an email they need a neutral, third-party arbiter to investigate.

 

"There's only one way to know that for certain," Ware said in an email. "For Clinton to turn over the server for independent analysis."

 

Clinton, a Democratic presidential candidate for 2016, so far has resisted doing so. But, taking the rare step Tuesday of answering reporter questions while on the campaign trail, Clinton said during a stop in Iowa that she wants the State Department to do all it can to expedite the release of her emails during her tenure as secretary.

 

"I have said repeatedly I want those emails out," Clinton said.

 

Ware also referred FoxNews.com to a March 4 statement in which the Benghazi committee first revealed they had records with two distinct Clinton email addresses. At the time, the committee likewise said they need someone to have access to the server to determine why those two email addresses show up.

 

Amid the tug-of-war over the server, the State Department did propose, in connection with a separate court case, that they release part of the 55,000 pages of Clinton emails by January. A federal judge on Tuesday, though, rejected that plan and ordered the department to come up with a schedule by next week for releasing the emails on a rolling basis. A State Department spokesman said they would comply.

 

The New York Times story, meanwhile, covered much more than the existence of two email accounts. It detailed how Blumenthal sent multiple memos to Clinton during her State Department years on the situation in Libya, while he was advising business associates seeking contracts from Libya's transitional government.

 

The venture reportedly was not successful. And it's ultimately unclear what, if anything, Clinton and the State Department knew of Blumenthal's involvement in any potential Libya projects.

 

Asked about the report on Tuesday, Clinton said she has "many old friends," and it's important to get "outside the bubble" to hear advice from other people. "I'm going to keep talking to friends," she said.

I am about to cross post a Gatestone Institute analysis of Multiculturalism in the United Kingdom that tends to validate the Islamic theopolitical ideology of Sharia Law to be respected alongside the traditional Rule of Law that has evolved a Representative Democratic Constitutional Monarchy in ye old UK.

 

There are couple of notions in this analysis that relates to thoughts I have written in this blog for a number of years. Those thoughts are two pejorative insinuations casting me in a negative light; viz. Homophobic and Islamophobic.

 

Homophobia

 

As a Biblical Christian I often condemn the homosexual lifestyle as an ungodly abomination in the eyes of God Almighty. This often leads to the accusation that I am a bigot that writes hate-speech and should be censured at best or physically accosted at worst by the defenders of homosexuality.

 

Leftists and homosexual activists often attempt to point out that if I was a true good Christian I would be tolerant and be accepting just as Jesus was tolerant and accepting prior to his Resurrection of tax collectors, sinners, prostitutes, adulteresses, and other godless lifestyles prevalent among Jews, Greek oriented Gentiles, and Roman Gentiles of that day and age. So I have to ask, “Was Jesus Christ the Son of God in the flesh (son of man in humanity/Son of God in Divinity) truly tolerate sinner lifestyles in his three years of active ministry prior to His Crucifixion?

 

Jesus indeed often forgave many sinning people, but on all most all instances that forgiveness was followed by a heartfelt repentance of sins or a warning from Jesus NOT to enter into sin implying it was a threat to the retention of a forgiveness status. Highlighting the numerous times the numerous times that Jesus forgave sins followed by repentance or a warning not to sin anymore will take up another post theme beyond the purpose of this current thought process. But I can’t help but to give one example.

 

That is the lady caught in the act of adultery (I’m always mystified about what happened to the man that must have been caught as well). She was dragged through the streets and thrown at Jesus’ feet with the purpose of exposing Jesus of being unbiblically tolerant of blasphemous sinners:

 

Now early[a] in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught[b] in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses, in the law, commanded[c] us that such should be stoned.[d] But what do You say?”[e] This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.[f] (John 8: 2-6 NKJV)

 

There is much theological speculation that Jesus was writing down the sins of the accusers. I am in that theological camp.

 

So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up[g] and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience,[h] went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her,[i] “Woman, where are those accusers of yours?[j] Has no one condemned you?”

 

11 She said, “No one, Lord.”

 

And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and[k] sin no more.”

 

12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” (Bold Text Mine John 8: 7-12 NKJV)

 

That test was an epic fail by the Pharisees and Scribes. Jesus was and still isn’t tolerant of a sin lifestyle. As to the accusation that Jesus never specifically condemned homosexuality, my sense is that the Jewish religious hypocrites never found the opportunity to through a practicing homosexual at the feet of Jesus. The result undoubtedly would have been the same so lesson learned by the hypocrites. Nonetheless I find a commentary by Lambert Dolphin to be right on concerning Jesus and homosexuality with his utilization of Mathew 15: 1-20 and Mark 7: 21-23 under the subheading of “Jesus and the Wellsprings of the Heart”. I will quote one paragraph under that subheading:

 

In this passage adultery and fornication are both mentioned. Adultery of course refers to sexual infidelity when one is married. Fornication is usually taken to mean heterosexual intercourse before marriage. However the Greek word translated "fornication," (porneia, from whence our word "pornography"), is actually a broad word used in the Bible "to denote any form of sexual behavior which is not in accord with Old Testament regulations and the teaching of the apostles..." (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, 1982). Homosexual behavior is without doubt included in the meaning of this word. (Jesus and the homosexual; By Lambert Dolphin; Lambert Dolphin’s Library; Notes and references October 21, 1997. July 9, 2001, August 10, 2001, December 14, 2001. January 15, 2002. March 6, 2002. May 29, 2002. January 1, 2003. June 8, 2003, August 25, 2003. January 15, 2004. November 5, 2004. January 3, 2006. March 1, 2006.)

 

Dolphin’s entire post is worthy of a critical read.

 

In wrapping this heading up I state: I do not have an unnatural fear of homosexuals as the term “Homophobia” implies, but rather a huge distaste for the lifestyle practiced by homosexuals.

 

Thus finishes my Homophobia refutation.

 

Islamophobia

 

The term “Islamophobia” implies an unnatural fear Islam which I do not have. A better description of my distaste of Islam is that the considered holy writings my by Muslims such as the Quran, Hadith and Sira are directly antichristian and anti-Jewish in its theopolitical ideology. And frankly that bugs me a lot.

 

The antichristian nature of Islam can be summed up by Answering Islam post entitled “The Antichrist Spirit Of Islam”. Here is an excerpt from that post:

 

The Antichrist Spirit Of Islam

 

The religion of Islam, more than any other religion, philosophy, or belief system, fulfills the description of the antichrist spirit.  The religion of Islam makes it one of its highest priorities to very specifically deny all of the above points regarding Jesus and His relationship to the Father.  In fact, it can very fairly be said that Islam literally is a direct polemical response against the above essential Christian doctrines.  Regarding the above points however, Muslims will be quick to argue that Islam teaches that Jesus is indeed the Messiah.  But this is really just trickery.  While it is true that Islam does retain the title of Messiah for Jesus, when one asks a Muslim to define what the title “Messiah” actually means in Islam, the definitions given are always hollow and fall entirely short of containing any truly messianic substance.  In Islam, Jesus is merely another prophet in a very long line of prophets.  Biblically speaking however, the role of the Messiah, among other things, also entails being a Divine Priestly Savior, a Deliverer and the King of the Jews.  As we saw in the earlier chapters about the Muslim Jesus, rather than being a Messiah that saves or delivers Israel and all of his faithful followers in any way, in the Islamic traditions, Jesus instead returns to lead Israel’s enemies against her in battle and to kill or convert all Jews and Christians.  This would be the equivalent of calling Adolph Hitler, rather than Moses, Israel’s deliverer.  For now, we see that the apostle John informs us that just before the final hour, a very specific “spirit” will dominate the earth. This spirit will deny many of the essential biblical doctrines regarding who Jesus is and what He came to do. Islam epitomizes this spirit perfectly. (Chapter 12 - The Antichrist Spirit Of Islam; By Joel Richardson (Will Islam Be Our Future?); Answering Islam)

 

 

The hatred of Jews is sown into the Quran as well. Here is Andrew Bostom exposing Jew-hatred in the Quran:

 

An additional much larger array of anti-Jewish Qur’anic motifs build to a denouement (as if part of a theological indictment, conviction, and sentencing process) concluding with an elaboration of the “ultimate sin” committed by the Jews (they are among the devil’s minions [Qur’an 4:60], accursed by God [Qur’an 4:47]), and their appropriate punishment: If they do not accept the true faith (i.e., Islam), on the day of judgment, they will burn in the hellfire (Qur’an 4:55). As per, Qur’an 98:7: “The unbelievers among the People of the Book and the pagans shall burn forever in the fire of Hell. They are the vilest of all creatures”



After presenting a full spectrum of the major anti-Jewish motifs in the Qur’an, additional illustrations demonstrating their persistent influence on Muslim attitudes (and resultant behaviors) towards Jews, are provided. Four themes are considered, and their historical application illustrated, across space and time, through the present: (I) the Jews being associated with Satan and consigned to Hell (Qur’an 4:60, 4:55, 58:14 — 19, and 98:6); (II) the imposition of the Qur’anic poll-tax (jizya; Qur’an 9:29) on Jews, specifically, and (III) the related enforcement of the Qur’anic (2:61) “curse” upon the Jews for killing the Prophets, and other transgressions against Allah’s will, meriting their permanent humiliation and abasement; and, last in connection to this curse, (IV) the Jews’ transformation into apes/swine, as punishment (Qur’an 2:65, 5:60, and 7:166). (Antisemitism in the Qur’an, Part 1; By Andrew Bostom; Gates of Vienna; 3/17/12 [There links to part two through four in this post])

 

I have a profound dislike for Islam not just because of the transnational violence done in the name of Islamic holy books, but because those considered holy books seek to destroy Christianity NOW in this present time. The destruction of non-Muslims is encoded in those Islamic writings and it is aimed specifically at Jews and Christians. Although there is a consignment to a Muslim hell as a destiny for Jews and Christians refusing to submit to Allah, the Quran, Hadith and Sira want to move that Islamic along by killing Jews and Christians TODAY.

 

NOW the primary reason I want you to read about the effects of Multiculturalism in UK is because that Leftist concept is slowly destroying the Western culture on those British Isles by allowing Islamic Supremacist to coexist with the rich history that has brought a history of Liberty beginning the with Magna Carter that eventually drove America’s Founding Fathers to revolution because the then American colonies were not receiving adequate representation. Since Americans did not have the same Rights as British citizens in the Mother Country the Founding Fathers built on the British Liberty legacy to make government even more accountable to the people than even Brit citizens experienced.

 

Just as that Islamic Supremacist ideology is destroying the UK from within, Americans need to pay attention. President Obama and his transformation of America ideology will make the USA susceptible to the very same problems the UK and the rest of Western Europe is experiencing by allowing devout Muslims to immigrate. Muslim immigration has proved to be a cultural death throw for Brits and Europeans in general. Do we really want that kind of idiocy to become as strong here in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave as it is in the United Kingdom and else in Europe?

 

I GOT ONR SAY NO!

Muslim Rape Gangs, Terrorists as 'Pop-Idols,' and the Trafficking of Children

A Month of Islam in Britain: April 2015

 

By Soeren Kern

May 17, 2015 at 5:00 am

Gatestone Institute

 

  • "The boys want to be like them [jihadists] and the girls want to be with them. That's what they used to say about the Beatles... [Muslim teenagers] see their own lives as poor by comparison, and don't realize they are being used." — Nazir Afzal, Britain's leading Muslim prosecutor.

 

  • "The extreme views of a 'racist, homophobe and anti-Semite' who supports killing non-Muslims and 'stoning adulterers' are being made available to prison imams and prisoners...with the blessing of [prison] authorities." — Newsweek magazine.

 

  • "Mohammed was selling me for £250 to paedophiles from all over the country. They came in, sat down and started touching me... Sometimes, I would be passed from one pervert to another... Mohammed's defense was laughable... His barrister, a woman, implied I was a racist because all the defendants were Muslim." — Excerpts from Girl for Sale, by Lara McDonnell.

 

  • "Democracy... violates the rights of Allah. Islam is the only real, working solution for the UK." — Election posters in Cardiff, Wales.

 

What follows is a summary of some of Islam and Islam-related issues in Britain during April 2015, categorized into four broad themes: 1) Islamic extremism; 2) British multiculturalism; 3) Muslim integration; and 4) Muslims and the British general elections.

 

1. Islamic Extremism and Syria-Related Threats

 

British police believe that about 600 Britons have travelled to Syria and Iraq since the conflict began in early 2011. About half of those are believed to have returned to the UK.

 

On April 1, police in Turkey detained nine British nationals from Rochdale, Greater Manchester, who were allegedly seeking to join the Islamic State in Syria. The nine — five adults and four children, including a one-year-old baby — were arrested in the Turkish city of Hatay.

 

One of those arrested was Waheed Ahmed, a student of politics at Manchester University. His father Shakil, a Labour Party councilor in Rochdale, said he thought his son was doing an internship in Birmingham. He said:

 

"It's a total mystery to me why he's there, as I was under the impression he was on a work placement in Birmingham. My son is a good Muslim and his loyalties belong to Britain, so I don't understand what he's doing there. If I thought for a second that he was in danger of being radicalized I would have reported him to the authorities."

 

Also on April 1, Erol Incedal, 27, a British national of Turkish origin, was jailed for 42 months for possessing a bomb-making manual. His friend, Mounir Rarmoul-Bouhadjar, 26, a British national of Algerian origin, who admitted to having the same manual, was given three years. Both men had been to the Syrian-Turkish border and mixed with jihadists, who taught them about weaponry and explosives.

 

Meanwhile, it emerged that the father of one of the three teenagers from Brent, northwest London, who were arrested in Turkey in March on suspicion of trying to join the Islamic State in Syria, works for the British Ministry of Defense. The father, who may have had access to the names and addresses of British military personnel at home and overseas, was placed on "compassionate leave."

 

On April 2, Yahya Rashid, of Willesden, also in northwest London, was charged with "engaging in conduct in preparation for committing an act of terrorism, and engaging in conduct with the intention of assisting others to commit acts of terrorism, between November 2014 and March 2015." Rashid, 19, was arrested at Luton Airport after arriving on a flight from Istanbul. The Middlesex University electronics student was allegedly returning from Syria after travelling there via Morocco and Turkey.

 

On April 3, six Muslims were arrested at the Port of Dover in Kent on suspicion of attempting to leave England to join the Islamic State. The Crown Prosecution Service said that three of the individuals were found in the back of a truck in an apparent attempt to smuggle themselves out of Britain. They were charged with "preparing acts of terrorism."

 

On April 5, Abase Hussen, the father of runaway British jihadi schoolgirl Amira Hussen, conceded that his daughter may have become radicalized after he took her to an extremist rally organized by the banned Islamist group Al-Muhajiroun, run by Anjem Choudary, the British-born Muslim hate preacher.

 

Amira, 15, was one of three girls from Bethnal Green Academy in East London who flew to Turkey in February to become "jihadi brides" in Syria. During a hearing at the Home Affairs Select Committee in March, Abase blamed British authorities for failing to stop his daughter from running off to Syria. Asked by Chairman Keith Vaz if Amira had been exposed to any extremism, Hussen replied: "Not at all. Nothing." The police eventually issued an apology.

 

Abase, however, changed his story after a video emerged which unmasked him as an Islamic radical who had marched at an Islamist hate rally alongside Choudary and Michael Adebolajo, the killer of Lee Rigby. Abase, originally from Ethiopia, said he had come to Britain in 1999 "for democracy, for the freedom, for a better life for children, so they could learn English."

 

On April 8, Alaa Abdullah Esayed of South London admitted to posting 45,600 tweets in support of the Islamic State in just one year. The tweets included pictures of dead bodies and encouraged children to arm themselves with weapons. Esayed's tweets also included a poem, "Mother of the Martyr," which advises parents on how to teach children about jihad. Esayed, 22, faces up to 14 years in prison for encouraging terrorism and disseminating terrorist publications.

 

On April 9, the families of two teenage boys from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, who are believed to have traveled to join the Islamic State, said that they were "in a state of profound shock" and deeply worried about the safety of their "ordinary Yorkshire lads." The 17-year-old boys, Hassan Munshi and Talha Asmal, are believed to have gone to Syria after heading to Turkey on March 31. The boys reportedly told their relatives that they were going on a school trip, but instead used the Easter holidays as a "window of opportunity" to flee Britain.

 

On April 20, a 14-year-old schoolboy from Blackburn, Lancashire, became Britain's youngest terror suspect. He was arrested in connection with an Islamic State-inspired terror plot in Melbourne, Australia. Police said messages found on his computer and mobile phone indicated a plan to attack the centenary celebrations of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli during the First World War. (Anzac Day — April 25 — marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.)

 

Also on April 20, police in Turkey arrested a British couple and their four young children on suspicion of seeking to travel to a part of Syria controlled by the Islamic State. Asif Malik, his wife Sara, and the four children — aged between 11 months and 7 years — were detained at a hotel in Ankara. Turkish officials said the family had crossed into Turkey from Greece on April 16 and that they had been detained after a tip-off from the British police.

 

On April 24, Hassan Munir of Bradford was jailed for 18 months for posting links to Dabiq, an Islamic State propaganda magazine, on his Facebook page. The court heard that Munir, 27, had ignored repeated warnings by Facebook and by police after he posted jihadist material, including items about beheadings. The judge said magazine posed a serious danger because it incited people to take up arms for the Islamic State.

 

On April 27, Mohammed Kahar of Sunderland was arrested after being caught disseminating extremist material, including documents such as "The Explosive Course," "44 Ways To Serve And Participate In Jihad," "The Book Of Jihad," and "This Is The Province Of Allah." Kahar, 37, was also accused of plotting Syria-related terrorism acts, supporting a proscribed organization and financing terrorism — in all, 10 offenses stretching back 18 months.

 

On April 28, an 18-year-old jihadist, Kazi Jawad Islam, was convicted of "terror grooming" for trying to "brainwash" his friend, Harry Thomas, "a vulnerable young man with learning difficulties," into attacking British soldiers with a meat cleaver.

 

The Central Criminal Court of England and Wales (aka Old Bailey) was told that Kazi Islam — allegedly inspired by the beheading of serviceman Lee Rigby in 2013 — befriended the then-19-year-old Thomas in October 2013 after meeting him at college. The court heard how Islam also "ruthlessly exploited" his autistic friend into preparing to make a bomb.

 

In an interview with the Guardian, Nazir Afzal, Britain's leading Muslim prosecutor, warned that more British children are at risk of "jihadimania" than previously thought because they see Islamic terrorists as "pop idols." He said:

 

"The boys want to be like them and the girls want to be with them. That's what they used to say about the Beatles and more recently One Direction and Justin Bieber. The propaganda the terrorists put out is akin to marketing, and too many of our teenagers are falling for the image.

 

"They see their own lives as poor by comparison, and don't realize they are being used. The extremists treat them in a similar way to sexual groomers — they manipulate them, distance them from their friends and families, and then take them.

 

"Each one of them, if they go to Syria, is going to be more radicalised when they come back. And if they don't go, they become a problem — a ticking time bomb — waiting to happen."

 

2. British Multiculturalism

 

In April, officials at the Lostwithiel School in Cornwall publicly humiliated nearly a dozen pupils between the ages of eight and 11 whose parents had refused to allow them to participate in a school trip to a mosque in Exeter. Some parents said they were concerned about the safety of their children, while others said they were opposed to the teaching of Islam in school. But school officials forced the non-compliant pupils individually to give an explanation in the student assembly.

 

On April 5, Victoria Wasteney, 38, a Christian healthcare worker, launched an appeal against an employment tribunal that found she had "bullied" a Muslim colleague by praying for her and inviting her to church. Wasteney was suspended from her job as a senior occupational therapist at the John Howard Centre, a mental health facility in east London, after her colleague, Enya Nawaz, 25, accused her of trying to convert her to Christianity. Wasteney's lawyers say that the tribunal broke the law by restricting her freedom of conscience and religion, which is enshrined in Article 9 of the European Convention of Human Rights.

 

On April 8, the Guardian reported that there has been a 60% increase in child sexual abuse reported to the police over the past four years, according to official figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request that make public for the first time the scale of the problem in England and Wales.

 

The number of offenses of child sexual abuse reported to the police soared from 5,557 cases in 2011 to 8,892 in 2014. At the same time, the number of arrests for child sexual abuse offenses in England and Wales fell from 3,511 in 2011 to 3,208 — a drop of 9%.

 

The biggest increase in reported cases in a single police force over the past four years took place in South Yorkshire. The force saw an increase of 577% in cases from 74 in 2011 to 501 in 2014, apparently reflecting the exposure of the Muslim sexual abuse scandal in Rotherham.

 

On April 14, the president of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, Lord Neuberger, said in a speech that Muslim women should be allowed to wear veils in court. He added that in order to show fairness to those involved in trials, judges must have "an understanding of different cultural and social habits." He said:

 

"Well known examples include how some religions consider it inappropriate to take the oath, how some people consider it rude to look other people in the eye, how some women find it inappropriate to appear in public with their face uncovered, and how some people deem it inappropriate to confront others or to be confronted — for instance with an outright denial."

 

Neuberger's comments came after a judge upheld a ruling allowing Rebekah Dawson, a 22-year-old convert to Islam, to stand trial wearing a niqab, a veil that only leaves the eyes visible.

 

On April 15, Newsweek magazine reported that the "extreme views of a 'racist, homophobe and anti-Semite' who supports killing non-Muslims and 'stoning adulterers' are being made available to prison imams and prisoners throughout England and Wales, with the blessing of [prison] authorities."

 

The magazine interviewed Haras Rafiq, managing director of the Quilliam Foundation, a counter-extremism think tank, who warned that British prisons have become "incubators for Islamic extremism" because inmates are being allowed to read the works of controversial South Asian cleric Abul Ala Maududi. Rafiq described Maududi, who died in 1979, as the "grandfather of Islamism."

 

Newsweek discovered that hundreds of copies of Maududi's analyses of the Koran were distributed in March at a training event for prison imams and chaplains held at the prison service college in Rugby. The books came from the Markfield Institute for Higher Education, part of the Islamic Foundation, a UK-based organization that is "inspired by the Muslim Brotherhood."

 

On April 22, the Daily Mail published excerpts of a new book, Girl for Sale, which describes the shocking ordeal of Lara McDonnell, who became the victim of a Muslim paedophile gang when she was only 13 years old. She wrote:

 

"Mohammed was selling me for £250 to paedophiles from all over the country. They came in, sat down and started touching me. If I recoiled, Mohammed would feed me more crack so I could close my eyes and drift away. I was a husk, dead on the inside.

 

"Sometimes, I would be passed from one pervert to another. In Oxford, many of my abusers were of Asian origin; [in London] these men were Mediterranean, black or Arab.

 

"Then, at the start of 2012 [some five years after the abuse began], Thames Valley Police asked to see me. They had been conducting a long-overdue investigation into sexual exploitation of young girls and wanted a chat. I told them everything, and by the end of March, Mohammed and his gang were in custody. Unbeknown to me, five other girls were telling police the same story.

 

"Mohammed's defense was laughable: he claimed I'd forced him to take drugs and have sex with me. His barrister, a woman, implied I was a racist because all the defendants were Muslim.

 

"Because the defendants were Muslim, the case had opened sensitive issues about race and religion. My view is clear: they behaved that way because of differences in how they viewed women."

 

On April 25, the Telegraph reported that British taxpayers are paying the monthly rent for Hani al-Sibai, the Islamist preacher who "mentored" Mohammed Emwazi (aka Jihadi John, the Islamic State executioner). Al-Sibai, 54, a father of five, lives in a £1 million home in Hammersmith, a district in West London. According to the Telegraph:

 

"The public purse has also paid for a number of legal actions brought by al-Sibai against the British government in his battle to prevent his deportation to Egypt and also attempts to have his name removed from terror sanctions lists.

 

"From his home, al-Sibai, also known as Hani Youssef, runs an effective al-Qaeda propaganda machine that includes the al-Maqreze Centre for Historical Studies. In recent months he has used various Internet sites to praise bin Laden and glorify al-Qaeda for waging war against 'the Crusader-Zionists.'"

 

Also in April, the Reverend David Robertson, who will soon take over as Moderator of the Free Church of Scotland, wrote a hard-hitting essay on the Christian Today website in which he argued that "fear of Islamophobia is blinding many of our politicians to the threat we face from Islam." Robertson wrote:

 

"Christianity is the bedrock and foundation of our secular society. Islam is different. Islam has no doctrine of separation of the spiritual from the political. Islam is, and has always been, a political movement. There can be no such thing as secular Islam. In the Islamic view the world is divided into two houses, Darus Salma, the house of Islam, and Darul Har, the house of war. The former is the actual area controlled by Islam, full political and religious control; the latter is those areas of the world still unsubdued by Islam. Islam means 'submission,' not peace."

 

Robertson added:

 

"I recently attended a Monday night meeting at a mosque in my city. ... I was impressed by what I observed. There were 150 mostly young men on a Monday night at a prayer meeting. This was not Friday prayers. This was only one of five mosques in the city. And there was a community, social and political aspect which was very impressive. But I was also depressed. Because I knew that there was no church in the city that would have 150 men coming to pray. Because I knew that there was no political or social organization in the city that could come remotely near matching what I observed. And this in a city where only 2 per cent of the population are Muslim. Imagine what power they can hold in a town or city where 25 per cent are Muslim?

 

"It's not so much the numbers — government is not done by opinion poll. It's the organization, social cohesion, wealth and internal discipline that brings the political power; if you want it. And Islam does. A survey was released this week which shows that in the UK as a whole Islam will be 11 per cent of the population within a couple of decades."

 

3. Muslim Integration

 

On April 8, the Leicester Crown Court jailed Jafar Adeli, an Afghan asylum seeker, for 27 months after he admitted to attempting to meet "Amy," an underage girl, after grooming her online. Adeli, 32, who is married, arranged to meet the girl after engaging in sexual conversations online and sending an indecent image of himself. But he was duped by a paedophile vigilante group called Letzgo Hunting. "Amy" was in fact a vigilante named John who was pretending to be a young girl.

 

Adeli, who has filed an appeal to remain in Britain, was placed on a ten-year sexual offenses prevention order. Judge Philip Head said: "It was your intention to have full sexual activity with someone you believed to be 14 and something you know to be a crime in this country. You were grooming this person for sexual activity."

 

On April 10, Abukar Jimale, a 46-year-old father of four who sought asylum in the UK after fleeing war-torn Somalia, walked free after sexually assaulting a female passenger as he drove her across Bristol in his taxi. Although Jimale was found guilty of sexual assault and causing a person to engage in sexual activity without her consent, he had his two-year sentence suspended. The defending counsel said that Jimale, who left Somalia in 2001 because he was being persecuted, was a hard-working father who had lost his job and good name as a result of the offenses.

 

On April 13, Mohammed Khubaib, a Pakistani-born father of five, was convicted of grooming girls as young as 12 with food, cash, cigarettes and alcohol. The 43-year-old married businessman, who lived in Peterborough with his wife and children, befriended girls in his restaurant and then "hooked" them with alcohol — normally vodka — in an attempt to make them "compliant" to sexual advances.

 

After a trial at the Old Bailey, Khubaib was found guilty of forcing a 14-year-old girl to perform a sex act on him and nine counts of trafficking for sexual exploitation involving girls aged from 12 to 15 between November 2010 and January 2013.

 

On April 14, Mohammed Ali Sultan, 28, of Wellington, Telford, was sentenced to five years in prison after having been found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of attempted rape. The sentence is in addition to a seven-year sentence after he pled guilty to two counts of sexual activity with a child and one count of controlling child prostitution in 2012.

 

On April 22, four Muslim men were charged with sex crimes against children in Rochdale. Hadi Jamel, 33, of Rochdale, Abid Khan, 38, of Liverpool, Mohammed Zahid, 54, of Rochdale, and Raja Abid Khan, 38, of Rochdale, were each been charged with one count of sexual activity with a child. The charges relate to alleged offenses against one girl who was under 16 at the time.

 

The charges are the latest to be brought following Operation Doublet, a probe by the Major Incident Team of the Greater Manchester Police into allegations of child sexual exploitation in Rochdale. In March 2015, ten men were charged with sex offenses alleged to have been committed against the girl and six others.

 

On April 23, Britain's Electoral Court found Lutfur Rahman, the mayor of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, guilty of election fraud and ordered him to vacate his post immediately. The Bangladesh-born Rahman and his supporters were found to have used religious intimidation through local imams, vote-rigging and wrongly branding his Labour rival as a racist to secure his re-election for a second term on May 24, 2014.

 

Rahman, who has been banned from seeking office again, was also found to have allocated local grants to buy votes. He was ordered to pay immediate costs of £250,000 ($390,000) from a bill expected to reach £1 million.

 

On April 23, the Birmingham Crown Court sentenced Imran Uddin, 25, a student at the University of Birmingham, to four months in jail for hacking into the university computer system to improve his grades. Uddin used keyboard spying devices to steal staff passwords and then increased his grades on five exams. Uddin is believed to be the first ever British student to be jailed for cheating.

 

On April 23, a jury at Chester Crown Court heard how Masood Mansouri, 33, from Saltney, Flintshire allegedly kidnapped and raped a 20-year-old woman, from Mochdre, near Colwyn Bay, after pretending to be a taxi driver to a woman trying to hail a cab. Five days later, the woman took a fatal overdose, the court heard. Mansouri denied all the charges.

 

On April 28, Aftab Ahmed, 44, of Winchcombe Place, Heaton, was charged with threatening to behead David Robinson-Young, a candidate for the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) in Newcastle East.

 

4. Muslims and the British General Elections

 

On April 4, the Telegraph reported that a front group for Muslim extremists boasted that it would act as "kingmaker" in the May 7 general election, and that it was "negotiating with the Tory and Labour leadership" to secure its demands.

 

According to the paper, Muslim Engagement and Development (MEND) built links with both parties after claiming to promote "democratic engagement" by Muslims. However, it was actually "a façade to win political access and influence for individuals holding extreme, bigoted and anti-democratic views."

 

During a MEND event on April 3, a man named Abu Eesa Niamatullah, who has called British people "animals," demanded that women should not work, attacked democracy and said that "the Creator is the one who should decide what the laws should be."

 

Meanwhile, Ed Miliband, the Labour Party's candidate for prime minister, vowed to ban "Islamophobia" if he emerged victorious in the elections. In an interview with The Muslim News, Miliband said:

 

"We are going to make it [Islamophobia] an aggravated crime. We are going to make sure it is marked on people's records with the police to make sure they root out Islamophobia as a hate crime.

 

"We are going to change the law on this so we make it absolutely clear of our abhorrence of hate crime and Islamophobia. It will be the first time that the police will record Islamophobic attacks right across the country."

 

The move — which one observer called "utterly frightening" because of its implications for free speech in Britain — was widely viewed as part of an effort by Miliband to pander to Muslim voters.

 

Previously, Home Secretary Theresa May pledged that if the Conservatives win the elections, every police force in England and Wales would be required to record anti-Muslim hate crimes as a separate category, as is already the case with anti-Semitic crimes.

 

In Derby, Gulzabeen Afsar, a Muslim candidate for the town council, sparked outrage after she referred to Ed Miliband as "the Jew," in comments made in Arabic.

 

Meanwhile, the British-born Islamist Anjem Choudary actively discouraged Muslims from voting. In a stream of Twitter messages using the #StayMuslimDontVote hashtag, Choudary argued that voting is a "sin" against Islam because Allah is "the only legislator." He has also said that Muslims who vote or run for public office are "apostates."

 

Other British Islamists followed Choudary's lead. Bright yellow posters claiming that democracy "violates the right of Allah" were spotted in Cardiff, the capital of Wales, and Leicester, as part of a grassroots campaign called #DontVote4ManMadeLaw.

 

One such poster stated:

 

"Democracy is a system whereby man violates the right of Allah and decides what is permissible or impermissible for mankind, based solely on their whims and desires.

 

"Islam is the only real, working solution for the UK. It is a comprehensive system of governance where the laws of Allah are implemented and justice is observed."

Francis made the compliment Saturday during the traditional exchange of gifts at the end of an official audience in the Apostolic Palace. He presented Abbas with a medallion and explained that it represented the angel of peace “destroying the bad spirit of war.” – Times of Israel

 

On Friday I posted on Pope Francis legitimizing Islamic terrorists in recognizing the unity government of Hamas-Palestinian Authority (PA) as a sovereign nation named Palestine. Today the Times of Israel ran the story on Pope Francis greeting Mahmoud Abbas as an angel of peace that is “destroying the bad spirit of war.”

 

Islamic Terrorist Mahmoud Abbas

 

Born in March 1935, Mahmoud Abbas, commonly known as Abu Mazen, is a leading politician in Fatah. He served as Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority (PA) from March to October 2003. In January 2005 he was elected President of the PA.

 

 

Through the 1960s, '70s, and '80s, Abbas travelled with Yasser Arafat and the rest of the PA leadership-in-exile to Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia. In 1966, after the pair had murdered a number of intelligence officers in Syria, they fled to Jordan. Four years later, after their effort to topple Jordan's Hashemite regime sparked a brutal civil war, they were expelled to Lebanon. "By 1975," writes Yoram Ettinger, former Minister for Congressional Affairs at Israel's Embassy in Washington DC, "they had plundered large parts of southern Lebanon, attempting to overthrow the central regime in Beirut, which triggered the Syrian invasion of Lebanon, a series of civil wars and the destruction of Lebanon."

 

 

"One of the extraordinary blind spots of contemporary Middle East history is the obsession of calling Mahmoud Abbas, whose nom de guerre or war name is Abu Mazen, a peace-loving moderate. ... Abbas was not only Yasser Arafat's deputy for 40 years, he also co-founded with him the terrorist group Fatah, masterminded the Munich massacre and wrote a PhD thesis and book denying the Holocaust. He has completely failed as READ ENTIRITY (MAHMOUD ABBAS (A.K.A. ABU MAZEN); Determine The Networks)

Pope calls Abbas ‘angel of peace’ during Vatican visit

Francis meets with PA chief after Holy See’s decision to acknowledge Palestinian state angers Jerusalem

Times of Israel

 

Pope Francis praised Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas as an “angel of peace” during a meeting at the Vatican.

 

Francis made the compliment Saturday during the traditional exchange of gifts at the end of an official audience in the Apostolic Palace. He presented Abbas with a medallion and explained that it represented the angel of peace “destroying the bad spirit of war.”

 

Francis said he thought the gift was appropriate since “you are an angel of peace.”

 

Abbas is in town for the canonization Sunday of two new saints from what was then Ottoman-ruled Palestine. It also comes days after the Vatican finalized a bilateral treaty with the “state of Palestine,” making explicit its recognition of Palestinian statehood.

 

Abbas, for his part, offered Francis relics of the two new saints.

 

The treaty, which was finalized Wednesday but still has to be signed, makes clear that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic relations from the Palestinian Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine.

 

A bilateral commission is putting the final touches to the agreement, on the Catholic Church’s life and activities in Palestine, which then “will be submitted to the respective authorities for approval ahead of setting a debate in the near future for the signing,” the Vatican said on Wednesday.

 

Some observers speculated that the agreement could be signed during Abbas’s visit.

 

The news of the treaty immediately drew ire from Israel.

 

“Israel heard with disappointment the decision of the Holy See to agree a final formulation of an agreement with the Palestinians including the use of the term ‘Palestinian State’,” said an Israeli foreign ministry official.

 

“Such a development does not further the peace process and distances the Palestinian leadership from returning to direct bilateral negotiations. Israel will study the agreement and consider its next step.”

 

The agreement, 15 years in the making, expresses the Vatican’s “hope for a solution to the Palestinian question and the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians according to the two-state solution,” Antoine Camilleri, the Holy See’s deputy foreign minister, said in an interview earlier this week.

 

In an interview with the Vatican’s Osservatore Romano newspaper, Camilleri said he hoped “the accord could, even in an indirect way, help the Palestinians in the establishment and recognition of an independent, sovereign and democratic State of Palestine.”

 

The Palestinian Authority considers the Vatican one of 136 countries to have recognized Palestine as a state, although the number is disputed and several recognitions by what are now European Union member states date back to the Soviet era.

 

Abbas’s visit came a day before two nuns who lived in Ottoman Palestine during the 19th century will be made saints at a Vatican ceremony.

 

Marie Alphonsine Ghattas of Jerusalem and Mariam Bawardy of Galilee will become the first Palestinian Arabs to gain sainthood.

 

Ghattas was born in Jerusalem in 1847, and died there in 1927. She was beatified — the final step before canonization — in 2009.

 

Bawardy was born in Galilee, now in northern Israel, in 1843. She became a nun in France and died in Bethlehem in 1878.

 

She was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1983.

 

Although there are several saints who lived in the region during Christianity’s early days, Bawardy and Ghattas are the first to be canonized from Ottoman-era Palestine.

 

The canonization of a third Palestinian — a Salesian monk — is still under review by the Church.

The person who goes by the pseudonym Beowulf and signs his name as Randy found an excellent essay on StupidFrogs.com which in turn cross posted the original by Daniel Greenfield on Sultan Knish. Greenfield posted on May 13, I couldn’t find a date for StupidFrogs.com and Beowulf cross posted preceded with an astute observation on May 15. That is the brief history of cross posting of “Schrodinger's Jihad”.

 

If you have been reading this blog you will see the relevance of Greenfield’s essay. His inspiration is the media condemnation against Pamela Geller and explaining a somewhat statistical reality of the real nature of Islam.

 

I am going to include Beowulf’s thoughts on the Conservative Christian Counselors Yahoo Group followed by the Greenfield essay on Sultan Knish.

Two important problems regarding the claimed non-existent terrorism by Moslems:

 

1.  If there are no Moslem terrorists blowing themselves up or beheading dozens of people or shooting as many people as possible in suicidal attacks, that means that these barbarities are being conducted by "false flag operators", meaning mostly American agitators.  Could someone please tell me where they find so many Americans willing to throw away their lives to accomplish some arcane political acts of protest in order to give the American hierarchy a strong excuse to conduct wars all over the world?  Doesn't sound like any Americans I have ever met.

 

2.  If it is true that these "faux-Moslem terrorists" are not Moslems but actually members of other religions, why isn't that group being fought ferociously by offended Moslems who are totally outraged by these usurpers who steal the good name and reputation of "The Religion of Peace" (tm)?  There should have been a long-standing armed avenging force such as an "All-Moslem, Anti-Terrorist, Rapid-Reaction, Elite Special Forces, World-wide Assault and Vengeance Regiment" that travels all over the world on a moment's notice to kill, capture, torture, and execute all the pretenders to the shining Moslem heritage?  The best reason no such Regiment operates or even exists or is even in the planning stages, is the simple fact that everyone, including all the "supposedly offended" Moslem groups, is tacitly admitting that the original claims, evasions, and excuses are totally false.  Feel free to provide logical countervailing evidence.

Schrödinger's Jihad

 

By Daniel Greenfield

May 13, 2015

Sultan Knish

 

The great paradox of the War on Terror is that we are fighting an enemy that doesn’t exist. We are told incessantly that there is no such thing as a Muslim terrorist.

 

There may be a tiny minority of violent extremists, but they are only a tiny minority of no importance whatsoever. And yet we’ve been at war with this same infinitesimally tiny minority for decades. 

This tiny minority has killed thousands of Americans. It has the support of entire governments in tiny countries like Pakistan (182 million), Iran (77 million) and Syria (22 million). We are told that this tiny minority is no way representative of the world’s billion Muslims, and yet it’s hard to find a Muslim country that doesn’t support or harbor a terrorist group.

We were told that the problems was their governments, but the Arab Spring showed us that democratic elections lead to governments that are even more supportive of tiny minority of extremists who are somehow taking over entire countries.

Everything we’ve been told is obviously a lie. And the best evidence comes from the liars themselves.

The media is howling that a bunch of cartoonists in Texas were irresponsible for sketching Islam’s dead warlord because they should have known that Muslim terrorists would come to kill them for it. But if the media is right and Islam is a religion of peace, then why should they have anticipated a terrorist attack?

And if Islam isn’t a religion of peace, then the media has been irresponsibly lying to us and the cartoonists have been risking their lives to warn us of that lie.

The talking heads on the television insist that the cartoon contest was irresponsible because there were bound to be “some crazies” who would “take the bait”. But if Islam is no more violent than any other religion, shouldn’t it be just as statistically likely that some Christian or Jewish crazies would attack one of the art exhibits, plays or musicals ridiculing and blaspheming against their religions?

Weren’t museums and galleries exhibiting “works of art” like Piss Christ or Shekhina provoking and baiting those Jewish and Christian crazies? And since there are more Christians than Muslims in America, isn’t it statistically far more likely that there should have been far more Christian terror attacks targeting blasphemous exhibits? 

We can only conclude that there is a much higher proportion of “crazies” among Muslims than among Christians. How much higher? 78 percent of Americans identify as Christians. 0.6 percent claim to be Muslims. Only 0.3 percent appear to be Sunnis, who are responsible for ISIS and Al Qaeda attacks.

There is indeed a tiny minority of extremists in America. It’s known as Islam.

What keeps the lie alive is another paradox. Call it Schrödinger's Jihad. The more famous Schrödinger's Cat is a paradox in which a cat in a sealed box with poison that has a 50 percent chance of being released is in an indeterminate state. It is neither dead nor alive until someone opens the box.

In Schrödinger's Jihad, the Muslim terrorist is in an indeterminate state until some Western observer opens the box, collapses his wave function and radicalizes him. The two Muslim Jihadists were in an indeterminate state until Pamela Geller and Bosch Fawstin and the other “provocateurs” suddenly turned them into terrorists in a matter of days or weeks. It didn’t matter that Elton Simpson, one of the Garland terrorists, had already been dragged into court for trying to link up with Jihadists in Africa.

Every Muslim is and isn’t a terrorist. He is both a peaceful spiritual person who is eager to embrace our way of life and a violent killer who can be set off by the slightest offense. Like the cat in the box that is neither dead nor alive, he is both violent and peaceful, moderate and extremist, a solid citizen and a terrorist. He does not choose which of these to be or to become; we decide what he will be.

The Jihadist paradox is that the Muslim terrorist is always defined by what we do, not by what he does. 

 

Islamic terrorism does not exist independently of the Western observer. It is not a Jihad with deep historical and theological roots within Islam, but a reaction to our interactions with Muslims. 

Obama insists that talking about Islamic terrorism ‘summons’ them into being. By admitting the existence of Islamic terrorists, we ‘radicalize’ Muslims. Even the words ‘Islamic terrorism’ creates Islamic terrorists who otherwise wouldn’t exist. 

The real threat is not from the terrorists, it’s from the truth.

When we tell the truth, people die. The truth turns Muslims into terrorists while the lies soothe them back into non-existence. Underneath all the academic terminology is the dream logic of wishful thinking. If we believe that Islam is a religion of peace, it will be a peaceful religion, and if we accept the reality that it’s violent, then it will become violent. Islam does not define itself. We define it however we want. Our entire counterterrorism policy is based around the perverse ostrich belief that Islamic terrorism is a problem that we create by recognizing its existence. If we ignore it, it will go away.

The lies about Islam are sustained by a deep conviction among liberals that the “Other” minorities are not real people with real beliefs and cultures, but victims in a game of power played out in the West. Islamic terrorism, like gay marriage or Global Warming, is just another step in the progressive pilgrim’s progress. It’s a problem that we caused and need to atone for in our cosmic karmic journey.

Westerners are privileged observers who have power while those minorities they observe do not. The duel between the Western left and right is taking place outside the box to determine what will be in the box once it’s forced open, while the oppressed minorities are in a state of indeterminacy in the box. 

The Schrödinger's Jihad paradox has many other adjoining boxes. Some are filled with dictators and criminals. If the progressive observer can open the box and find the root cause, out comes a good person; if the right opens the box, then out will march the terrorists, drug dealers and warlords. 

The other side of the rhetoric about oppression and colonization, of punching up and punching down is the conviction that those at the bottom do not have free will or agency. If the mugger chooses to mug, rather than being driven to it by poverty, if Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union gleefully chose conquest instead of being forced to it by Western imperialism, and if the Muslim terrorist is not a helpless victim, but an abuser, then the moral imperative of the left’s worldview collapses in a heap.

If Muslims are real people who are at least as capable of imperialism, racism, slavery and destroying the planet as any Westerner, and who have been doing all of these things a lot longer, then leftists would have to accept that they are tearing down the most progressive civilization on the planet on behalf of ridiculously reactionary civilizations. Not only would they no longer be the privileged observers in control of the future, but they would have to see themselves as destroyers of what is left of the future.

The left refuses to blame Islam or Muslims because that would mean admitting that they are people.

Schrödinger's Jihad is a child’s toy box for overgrown children who view Muslims as social justice dolls and terrorist action figures instead of people as flawed and complicated as they are. The left refuses to take Islamic theology seriously because it is incapable of understanding different points of view. 

It approaches Islam as a race, rather than a religion, because it refuses to delve into what its beliefs are. Instead it chooses to see Muslims as blank slates to be filled with its ideology, as indeterminate patterns that can be reshaped into whatever they want them to be. It does not want to know what it says in the Koran, because that ruins its wonderful fantasy of Muslims as an oppressed race, rather than a creed.

 

Lies that are based on what we want to be true are the hardest to disprove. A lie that is tied into identity cannot be touched without destroying the entire identity of an individual or a movement. 

The lies about Islam run into the heart of what the left is. To the left, everything is indeterminate and everything can be reshaped. Existence flows from power and power is pitted against progress. By destroying that which exists, they can bring their dreams to life. The dream is stronger than reality.

The left doesn’t really believe that Muslim terrorists exist except when we bring them to life. The real animating force behind Al Qaeda was George W. Bush or Dick Cheney. The true power behind ISIS is Pamela Geller or the Pentagon. The Westerner opens the box and the Muslim terrorist comes out. When Western civilization as we know it is destroyed, then the left believes Muslim terrorism will end. Kill the observer and the cat never existed. Destroy the dreamer and the nightmare dies with him.

The truth is more dangerous than the terrorists. Terrorists can kill the body, but truth can kill the dream.

I am going to proffer a guess that someone at WND read the May 13 post “The Muslim Solution”. That post offered two concepts to solving the perpetual Quranic edict against non-Muslims.

 

WND sent out a book review of a book they are releasing on July 8, 2015 – “House of War: Islam's Jihad Against the World”. This book exposes the real nature of Islam according to its own considered holy writings. So if any generous soul decides to pre-order the book, perhaps contact me to let me know about your generosity. The need for contact is I’d hate to receive 100 copies of what promises to be an awesome read. :-)

Islam: Not a Religion of Peace, but a 'House of War'

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON – With the toppling of one Mideast dictator after another and the ensuing "Arab Spring," horrendous terrorist attacks are increasingly being perpetrated by groups and individuals claiming to act in the name of Islam.

"The bad quasi-secular dictatorships of the Middle East have been replaced," says G. M. Davis, leaving chaos and anarchy, a "fertile ground for jihadist groups whose violent aspirations are in no way limited to their own societies." Yet Western political leaders, with the support of the major media, have consistently affirmed their belief that, despite the violence done in its name, Islam is a religion of peace.

The critical question is, who is right? Do Muslims who wage violent jihad against unbelievers fundamentally misunderstand their own religion? Or are the jihadists following their holy book in their willingness to die as martyrs according to the dictates of their god, who promises paradise to those who "fight in his cause and kill and are killed, a promise binding on him in truth" (Koran 9:111)? With the West engaged in military operations in multiple Islamic countries and with a rapidly growing Muslim population at home, the answer is of critical importance to the future of Western Civilization.

 

Relying primarily on Islam's own sources, House of War: Islam's Jihad Against the World (formerly Religion of Peace? Islam's War Against the World and now available in paperback), compellingly documents that Islam is indeed a violent, expansionist ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.

To be published by WND Books on July 8, House of War explains how Islam is more than just a religion. It is a system of government, seeking to extend its own peculiar legal code – Sharia law – over the entire world. The "peace" Islam seeks is a world united by the Islamic faith and Sharia law under which all other faiths and political regimes have been either suppressed or eliminated. "Jihad" is the violent struggle against the non-Islamic world to bring it into "submission" to Islamic rule.

 

"The idea that Islam is a religion of peace," says Davis, "is fundamentally, totally, and disastrously wrong." Westerners have been indoctrinated to believe that the jihadists they see on television are extremists who have twisted their religion to serve a violent purpose, when in fact, "Islam is intrinsically violent. It is the impetus for modern terrorism, and its doctrines necessitate that the only possible relationship between Islamic civilization and non-Islamic civilization is war or subjugation," says Davis. By delving into key Islamic writings, Davis reveals the fastest-growing religion in the world for what it is – an existential threat to Western Civilization, a reality to which Western leaders remain determinedly blind.

 

G. M. Davis is a Mideast scholar, author, and filmmaker. He graduated from the University of Rochester in 1997 with a BA in political science, and from Stanford in 2003 with a PhD in the same area of study. In 2005, he produced and directed the feature documentary, Islam: What the West Needs to Know.
 

House of War will be available on July 8, 2015.

If you would like to receive a review copy of House of War, please contact WND marketing at marketing@wnd.com.

Someone is going to Hell: us or them? I say them! I say that because Islam is permanent war and I want peace. Peace cannot coexist with Islam.

 

Nobody has the political will to off 1.3 BILLION Muslims. Neither do they have the will to wage the ideological war. It’s gonna be a tough sell.” - Dajjal

 

The above Dajjal quote is how I derived the title for two combined comments made in light of the ISIS beheading of 15 Ethiopian Christians located in Libya: “Islamist genocide in Libya proof Christians must arm themselves: Gun law expert”.

 

It has taken me awhile to cross post Dajjal’s largely due to the eye for eye concept or worse excising all adherents to Islam that are committed to the belief in the immutability of the Quran and the measured reverence for the Hadith and Sira. Those writings considered holy by even the most nominal of Muslims explicitly call for violence against non-Muslims who at the very refuse to submit to the superiority of Islam. Add this to the fact that Islam teaches that Mohammed is the perfect man to imitate to be a righteous person. The problem imitating Mo is that he seemed to transform from a wise religious philosopher in his early days in Mecca into a lusting blood thirsty maniac after expulsion to Medina, willing to terminate anyone who refused his prophethood or mock his integrity as a holy man.

 

Purist Muslims (aka Radical Muslim terrorists) today committing atrocities today claim justification for their actions by claiming the example of Mo. Check out these five English translation of the so-called immutable Quran 33: 21:

 

Sahih International: There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.

 

Pickthall: Verily in the messenger of Allah ye have a good example for him who looketh unto Allah and the Last Day, and remembereth Allah much.

 

Yusuf Ali: Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.

 

Shakir: Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much.

 

 

Muhammad Sarwar: The Messenger of God is certainly a good example for those of you who have hope in God and in the Day of Judgment and who remember God very often.

 

Keeping in mind the Quran is not written in numerical order by date, but rather by size – roughly longest to shortest. (See Also cache PDF) TAKE NOTE that Quran 33:21 was recorded from Medina.

 

Dajjal’s point is that as long as Muslims are devoted to Islamic writings and Mohammed, they will continue rise up in violence even if they are utterly defeat in a war. It is encoded in the considered holy writings and the perfect man’s example – Mohammed – to be violent in the HERE and NOW until Islam forces global submission. ERGO the only solution to preventing the constant rise of Muslims doing their duty is the eradication of all the adherents to all of Islam as if that religion of divine origin in a revelation to a chosen man.

 

Dajjal’s thoughts also occurred among European Christian adherents who grew weary of the constant Muslim violence in medieval days. Hence the Crusades began (See Also HERE) with people capable of the same violence as Muslims. The sad truth about the Crusades is that atrocities were committed contrary to the Revelation of Jesus Christ. Another sad truth is that Muslims from the days of their prophet Mo right on to the present are committing atrocities IN ACCORDANCE to their Allah’s revelation to Mo.

 

I’ve had my share of just turn Dar al-Islam into a nuked sea of glass from September 11, 2001 right on through these days of ISIS and Boko Haram and lesser Islamic terrorism of notoriety. BUT after periods of cooling off I have to realize that blanket eradication of all Muslim devoted to their belief of the immutability of Islamic theopolitical Islamic doctrine is contrary to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ. Here are four Gospel (Good News) examples of it being God’s will that all humanity are Saved in Christ if they only believe in the Risen Savior:

 

Matthew 28:18-20 (NKJV)

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore[a] and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.[b]

 

Mark 16:15-16 (NKJV)

15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.

 

Luke 24:46-49 (NKJV)

46 Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise[a] from the dead the third day, 47 and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 And you are witnesses of these things. 49 Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem[b]until you are endued with power from on high.”

 

John 20:21-23; 30-31 (NKJV)

21 So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.”

 

30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name. (New King James Version)

 

That rules out the Muslim Solution a la Hitler’s Jewish Solution.

 

So how in the world does Western Civilization eliminate Muslim lunacy without committing genocide? There is an idea that Dajjal also propagates, yet that idea might still be a bit distasteful to Americans who correctly take a stand with America’s Constitutional Bill of Rights. In particular the First Amendment’s proclamation as basic human right to Religious Freedom (See Also HERE), Free Press, a Free Press, Right to Assemble and to petition government with grievances without fear reprisals. Dajjal’s idea is a full scale government assault on the reality of Islam with psychological warfare.

 

A psychological warfare assault on Islam goes against the grain of Religious Freedom and Free Speech among Americans. HOWEVER, beginning such an assault would be a great secular path that Biblical Christians can support that is not outright genocide.

 

For sure as soon as a psych-assault begins, Western Civilization will receive the traditional Muslim pushback that will include the cry, “die kafir” (infidel non-Muslim). If America remains sincere about exposing Islam with psych-warfare, the Muslim response will also lead to military action in turn. Such military action should lead to a WWII-style rules of engagement (ROE). Those ROE should lead to the utter defeat of any Muslim military capability followed by psychological warfare in a now occupied land. This means the inclusion of the suppression of the theopolitical nature of Islam even if it means arresting every mullah, imam, mufti and/or any religious title that refuses to denounce the Quran-Medina inspired theopolitical ideology including in the Hadith and Sira.

 

As a Christian I am no fan of the entirety of Islam. It is my opinion that the Quran is an antichrist promoting religious book. I haven’t read enough the Quran to know if the antichrist surahs are in both the Mecca and Medina portions of the Quran. I am not going to take the time now to make that exploration. As an American I am willing to tolerate a transformed (as opposed to Islamic purist reform) Islam in which the peaceful allah-searching components of the Quran, Hadith and Sira become preeminent. As long as Islam demands a death to the kafir mentality, especially Americans and Jews, I support harsh suppression.

 

Well, that’s my two-cents. Below are the sentiments of Dajjal – that I must remind you comes shortly after the mass beheading of Christians – which I do have a tough time agreeing with completely, but perhaps partially.

Destroy Islam for Western Culture’s Survival

 

By Dajjal

Derived from Comment Dates:

April 20, 2015 at 7:15 PM and April 20, 2015 at 9:28 PM

 

Isdamnic genocide is not soluble by individual armed resistance. Where Allah’s writ runs and Muslimes outnumber Christians; the mob will prevail.

 

Where Allah’s writ does not run, the laws generally preclude individual ownership and carrying of firearms. Jews and Christians are sitting ducks in Europe; forbidden by law to defend themselves.

 

While some American States issue concealed carry permits, those incidents are rare here in the USA. Most of the plots have involved suicide bombings, in which cases a pistol would not be useful.

 

Collective action is required: our government, in alliance with other free nations, must eradicate Islam from the face of the earth.

 

When the impatient zealots of ISIS swarm Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal, Iran gets their own or the Chechens take over Russia’s arsenal, it will be too late and all hope will be lost.

 

Kinetics alone will not solve the problem. The war of ideas alone will not solve the problem. A combination is required.

 

Our government must wage psychological warfare by creating a docudrama based on the Sira. The docudrama must be backed up with shorter productions detailing individual incidents. Those must be distributed globally in multiple languages.

 

By exposing the Ummah to the awful truth about Moe the seeds of doubt will be planted to sprout into apostasy.

 

The hard line true believers who will not apostatize must be ushered into Hell. Off the Imam or Mullah, then bomb and strafe his funeral procession.

 

Wholesale slaughter is needed. Wherever ISIS and like groups are gathered, drop ordinance of sufficient magnitude to wipe them out without regard to collateral damage. Be proactive: do it to them before they do you in. We see videos with long armored columns which should have been strafed by A10s. Kill one fly and one hundred will come to his funeral.

 

Someone is going to Hell: us or them? I say them! I say that because Islam is permanent war and I want peace. Peace cannot coexist with Islam.

 

Nobody has the political will to off 1.3 BILLION Muslims. Neither do they have the will to wage the ideological war. It’s gonna be a tough sell.

 

Islam is like a wasp hive: swat one and they all come after you. Offensive jihad is fard al-kifaya. When we retaliate, its fard al-ayn [Blog Editor: I didn’t have clue what the heck these two fards meant. HERE is a simple explanation from OU of all places and HERE is an explanation a purist Islamic website.]; including Muslimas [Blog Editor: Muslim women – typically younger, hip and/or socially outgoing – Urban Dictionary, wiseGEEK and WhatIsIslamAbout.com], children and sheikhs.

 

Muslims cannot be defeated without destroying their iman. While they [i.e. the Muslim dedication to the concept of **Iman] believe in Allah, his imperatives, threat & promise, they will never cease attacking for long.

 

[** Blog Editor: “Iman” as a concept - Iman is generally outlined using the six articles of faith:

 

  1. Belief in Allah

 

  1. Belief in the Angels

 

  1. Belief in Divine Books

 

  1. Belief in the Prophets

 

  1. Belief in the Day of Judgment

 

  1. Belief in Allah's predestination

 

Of these, the first five are mentioned together in the Qur'an[9] and by Muhammad, while including a corollary of belief in Allah – the good and evil of fate ordained by God – has referred to all six together in the following manner in the Hadith of Gabriel:

 

"Iman is that you believe in God and His Angels and His Books and His Messengers and the Hereafter and the good and evil fate [ordained by your God]."[10] (Iman (concept): The Six articles of Islamic faith; Wikipedia; page was last modified on 18 April 2015, at 16:38.)]

 

 

They think Allah is God and Moe was Al-Insan al-kamil [Blog Editor: “al-insan al-kamil” is the Islamic doctrine of the perfect man of which Mohammed is the highest example – HERE and HERE] Unless someone shows them that Allah is Satan and Moe was a murdering, lecherous pedophile and false prophet, we cannot win this war.

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has been running a petition campaign called “Mr. President, Name the Enemy”. The last time I checked the campaign was just over 90,000 signatures. Now I realize such petition campaigns are typically fund raising programs. But eh … In this case I am pleased that nearly ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND Americans have expressed their displeasure that President Barack Hussein Obama REFUSES to acknowledge America’s most current national enemy at the very least is the Islam interpreted in its purist form called Radical Islam by those who believe that there are Moderate Muslims who don’t believe the Quran is the express word of Allah.

So this is what I’m going to do to encourage people to bring those signatures way over 100K, I going to cross post two ACLJ posts about the ISIS-Garland attack on American Free Speech followed by the wording of the petition. Then click on petition link I’ll provide at the end (or click HERE if you want to forego the actually pertinent information).

 

After you sign you will be taken to the typical donation page. It is not necessary to donate for your petition signature to count. NONETHELESS, the ACLJ is a very good Christian Civil Rights activist organization to support.

Jihad Struck Texas But Will the Obama Administration Continue to Bury Its Head in the Sand

 

By Matthew Clark

May 5, 2015

ACLJ

 

Jihad struck Texas last night.  It’s just the latest skirmish in a global radical Islamic assault on free speech – on freedom.

 

It’s a war.  ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, and al Qaeda are just a few of the named brigades in this radical Islamic jihadist army.

 

The two Islamic terrorists who opened fire on a free speech art exhibit in Texas are merely the latest casualties in this war.  But they are a reminder of who the enemy is.

 

These radical Islamists are clear on who their enemy is.  To them, free speech is the enemy.  Islamic radicals made this clear through their murderous rampage at Charlie Hebdo in Paris and the free speech exhibit in Texas.  To them, Christians are the enemy, evidenced by the mass murders, propaganda beheadings, and vile statements carried out by ISIS, Boko Haram and other terrorist groups.

 

The terrorists who attacked free speech in Texas last night made it clear what their goal was, what they were fighting for, and who their enemy is.  One tweeted just moments before the attack.

 

Sharia is Light Tweet

That twitter account has now been suspended, but it contained a litany of jihadists tweets, pro-ISIS retweets, and radical Islamic propaganda.

 

In short, to the jihadists, we are the enemy.  They have named their enemy. And by doing so they have inspired the Tsarnaev brothers, the Texas attack, Nidal Hasan, and many others to carry out deadly terrorist attacks throughout America.

 

Yet the Obama Administration still only references these as “extremists.”  President Obama time and time again refuses to acknowledge that these vicious and targeted attacks on freedom are carried out by one ideologically bonded group of people – radical Islamists, jihadists.  Last night was no exception, as the White House has merely referred to the jihadist attack on free speech in Texas as “an act of violence.”

 

In short, President Obama refuses to name the enemy.  And the consequences build every day.

 

The contrast could not be more stark.

 

The jihadists are crystal clear about their enemy.  Tens of thousands of radical Islamists have flocked to join ISIS and other terrorist groups – including attempts by at least one of the militants who carried out last night’s attack.  At the same time, America’s response to jihad, under President Obama’s (lack of) leadership, has weakened the cause of freedom.

 

This must end.  America must demand accountability from our leaders.  We the people must demand that our next President (and there are a lot of people vying for the job right now) is willing to name our enemy and committed to defeating them wherever they train, plot, and carry out jihad.

 

America must never back down.  We must never surrender our First Amendment freedoms.  The local authorities in Texas showed the resolve that we must all exhibit.

 

Free speech, even speech you and I might disagree with, must be protected.  But now it’s time for America’s leaders to speak out – to name the enemy – and engage the jihadists on the battlefields they are creating.  The only way to stop the threat of terror is to overwhelmingly defeat the jihadists who inspire it.

Radical Islam In Conflict With Free Speech

 

By Edward White

May 7, 2015

ACLJ

 

terrorist attack took place in Garland, Texas, this week in response to a free speech conference that took issue with the Islamic prohibition against creating images of the Prophet Muhammad. The event awarded a financial prize to the person who drew the best cartoon of Muhammad.

 

The terrorist attack (ISIS has taken credit for it) points out the stark difference between the American view of speech that offends some people and the radical Muslim’s view of such speech. We allow it; they don’t.

 

Americans have broad free speech rights. Our rights, however, are not unlimited. For example, we cannot falsely shout fire in a crowded theater to cause a panic. (This statement is often wrongly uttered by failing to include the word falsely; of course, we can shout fire in a crowded theater that is on fire.)

 

The main idea behind our free speech rights is to allow an array of speech that is robust. Our free speech rights allow us the room to decide whether to say something (or hold a free speech conference) that is provocative. Our freedom allows for satire and debate, which allows ideas to be explored, and, possibly, allows for minds to be changed.

 

Deciding to engage in such speech at a particular time and place comes down to prudence and effectiveness. Such restrictions are not imposed by the First Amendment, just by a person’s sensibilities. Whether we like it or not, our First Amendment allows a group the freedom to hold a conference that may be considered blasphemous.

 

In contrast, sharia (the moral code and religious law of Islam) does not allow the same freedoms as does our First Amendment. It is restrictive. It allows little, if any, room for self-expression, satire, or dissent from orthodoxy. The consequences for holding a free speech conference, such as the one in Garland, under sharia are severe. The punishments for blasphemy include imprisonment, flogging, and death.

 

The terrorist attack over cartoons about Muhammad illustrates the extreme views of the radical Muslim. No one likes to see his religion blasphemed, but the proper response to blasphemy is debate, boycott, prayer, or protest—not killing those with whom you disagree to silence the speech you do not like.

 

+++++++++++

Mr. President, Name the Enemy

The ACLJ Petition

 

Here’s what the Obama Administration believes:

 

The Taliban aren’t terrorists.

 

ISIS—the Islamic State—isn’t Islamic.

 

America isn’t at war with radical Muslims, merely with “extremists.”

 

It’s hard to believe, but the Obama Administration is afraid to name our enemies.

 

This makes no sense.

 

The Muslim world knows the Taliban are terrorists. The Muslim world knows ISIS is Islamic.

 

It’s time for the truth. It’s time to level with the American people. At the ACLJ, we speak the truth. We name the enemy. Why can’t the President?

 

Mr. President, Name the Enemy

 

President Obama,

 

By refusing to name the enemy, you’re choosing weakness over strength. By refusing to name the enemy, you’re hiding the true threat from the American people. Speak the truth and name the enemy. Americans deserve the truth.

Pamela Geller vs. Anjem Choudary

 

 

Last night the psycho-Imam from the UK was on Hannity to debate Pamela Geller on if she should die or not for exercising her First Amendment right of Free Speech. In case you are stuck on Left Wing media outlets, Imam Anjem Choudary felt Geller should be judged and held accountable according to Sharia Law for organizing the Mo Cartoon Contest entitled the Muhammad Art Exhibit at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland TX. The murderous intention of Jihadi Muslims Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi was nipped in the bud quickly by the security off-duty Garland Police Officer who shot the Muslim dolt duo just after they open fired (See HERE and HERE).

SHOCK VIDEO: Radical Imam Tells Pamela Geller on Live TV She Should be SLAUGHTERED. Hannity: 'You're Evil and Pathetic'. ‘You want her to die!': Hannity clashes with Islamic extremist over anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller. ‘You Want Her to Die!’ Hannity, Pam Geller Come to Blows with Anjem Choudary. Pamela Geller: FBI Has Not Contacted Me Despite Terrorist Threat by ISIS. Fox News Hannity Sean Hannity and Pamela Geller got into a pretty fierce shouting match with Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary over whether Geller should be put to death for organizing a cartoon contest to, as Choudary put it, insult Muhammad and all Muslims. (Pam Geller Claims No Contact from FBI, Homeland Security Since Terror Attack).The contest, of course, was targeted by two shooters who ended up dead and have reported ties to ISIS.


Choudary has been on Hannity’s show many times before, and tonight Hannity asked him point-blank, “Do you support this death threat against Pam Geller because she ran a free speech contest?”

RELATED: Ingraham Grills Geller: Why ‘Go Out of the Way to Offend a Billion Muslims’? [Blog Editor: Link by this Editor rather than Youtube poster.]

Choudary argued there’s a difference between cartoons of Mickey Mouse and cartoons of Muhammad, and said Geller went in “knowing full well” many Muslims consider blasphemy an issue worthy of the death penalty. Hannity went off and shouted, “You want her to die!”

Choudary said Geller should be put before a court and tried, and she would end up punished. Geller shot back, “To blame me and say that my cartoons are controversial… murdering cartoonists is controversial.”

They got into a shouting match (Geller told him to stop interrupting and at one point said “I know you’re used to stepping over women”), and Choudary told her she “knew the consequences.” They continued fighting, Choudary went off on a tangent about the U.S. “murdering innocent people,” and Hannity ended by calling him “evil and pathetic.”


Islamic Imam Anjem Choudary told Pamela Geller tonight that she should be slaughtered for her Texas cartoon contest.


This was an AMAZING exchange


Anjem Choudary: We’re talking about people who deliberately had a competition to insult the messenger Mohammad… If you saw the cartoons that Charlie Hebdo drew you would understand the anger. And now this woman was to draw cartoons or have people draw cartoons to insult the prophet knowing full well that this carries the death penalty in Islam… She should be put before Shariah court and tried and of course she would face capitol punishment.


This was an amazing exchange.


Best Line—
Pamela Geller to Anjem Choudary: “I’m talking, sir… I know you’re used to stepping over women but you’re not going to have it here.”
