Some Interesting Background On Recent Events

I think most of the world has concluded now that Saudi dissident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week. That is unfortunate, but what they are not telling you is who Jamal Khashoggi actually was.

A website called spectatorus provides some insight into what was behind the murder. The information they provide is not surprising.

The article outlines the events surrounding the murder of Khasshoggi:

A one-time regime insider turned critic of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — the de facto head of the Saudi kingdom which tolerates no criticism whatsoever — Khashoggi had been living in Washington for the previous year in self-imposed exile amid a crackdown on independent voices in his homeland.

He had become the darling of western commentators on the Middle East. With almost two million Twitter followers, he was the most famous political pundit in the Arab world and a regular guest on the major TV news networks in Britain and the United States. Would the Saudis dare to cause him harm? It turns out that the answer to that question was ‘You betcha.’

Following uneventful visits to the consulate and, earlier, the Saudi embassy in Washington, Khashoggi was lured into a murderous plan so brazen, so barbaric, that it would seem far-fetched as a subplot in a John le Carré novel. He went inside the Istanbul consulate, but failed to emerge. Turkish police and intelligence officials claimed that a team of 15 hitmen carrying Saudi diplomatic passports arrived the same morning on two private jets. Their convoy of limousines arrived at the consulate building shortly before Khashoggi did.

Their not-so-secret mission? To torture, then execute, Khashoggi, and videotape the ghastly act for whoever had given the order for his merciless dispatch. Khashoggi’s body, Turkish officials say, was dismembered and packed into boxes before being whisked away in a black van with darkened windows. The assassins fled the country.

The Saudi government does not handle criticism well. But there is more to the story:

In truth, Khashoggi never had much time for western-style pluralistic democracy. In the 1970s he joined the Muslim Brotherhood, which exists to rid the Islamic world of western influence. He was a political Islamist until the end, recently praising the Muslim Brotherhood in the Washington Post. He championed the ‘moderate’ Islamist opposition in Syria, whose crimes against humanity are a matter of record. Khashoggi frequently sugarcoated his Islamist beliefs with constant references to freedom and democracy. But he never hid that he was in favour of a Muslim Brotherhood arc throughout the Middle East. His recurring plea to bin Salman in his columns was to embrace not western-style democracy, but the rise of political Islam which the Arab Spring had inadvertently given rise to. For Khashoggi, secularism was the enemy.

He had been a journalist in the 1980s and 1990s, but then became more of a player than a spectator. Before working with a succession of Saudi princes, he edited Saudi newspapers. The exclusive remit a Saudi government–appointed newspaper editor has is to ensure nothing remotely resembling honest journalism makes it into the pages. Khashoggi put the money in the bank — making a handsome living was always his top priority. Actions, anyway, speak louder than words.

Khashoggi was at one point a columnist for The Washington Post. Were his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood made public at the time? Did The Washington Post purposely hire a member of the Muslim Brotherhood to write columns for them?

The goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is to establish a worldwide caliphate under Muslim rule. For a number of years they have operated undercover in America working toward the goal of creating a Muslim government here. For further information see the Holy Land Foundation Trial information and exhibits (here).

Mr. Khashoggi probably died a horrendous death which is not right, but keep in mind that he would have celebrated had what happened to him happened to an infidel. Much of the Middle East does not play by the same rules as western culture does.

Discrimination Against Conservative Organizations

The Daily Caller reported yesterday that Amazon has barred the Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom from taking part in their Amazon Smile program.

The article reports:

Amazon allows the left-wing Southern Poverty Law Center to determine which groups are and aren’t allowed to take part in Amazon Smile 

The article lists some of the groups who will be participating in the program:

Unlike ADF, hardline Islamic groups are allowed to participate in Amazon Smile. That includes the Islamic Center of Jersey City, whose imam called Jews “apes and pigs” and requested Allah’s help in killing them “down to the very last one,” according to the Anti-Defamation League.

 

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is able to take part in Amazon Smile, despite a 2009 federal court ruling the U.S. government has “ample evidence” of ties between the group and Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

The similarly named Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) is also an Amazon Smile member. ICNA promotes the establishment of an Islamic caliphate and has ties to a radical Pakistani political groupJamaat-e-Islami. The ADL has criticized ICNA for giving a platform to extremists.

Amazon’s spokesperson declined to comment to TheDCNF on the eligibility status of individual organizations but stressed the diversity of the more than one million participants in the program.

ISNA is listed as an unindicted co conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial which began in July 2007. The Holy Land Foundation Trial dealt with groups funding money to Islamic terrorists. These are the people Amazon is allowing to participate in their charity programs while keeping Christian organizations out. This is definitely backwards.

When True Colors Begin To Show

The Daily Caller is reporting today that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization that claims to be a Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments to tear down all Confederate monuments.

The article reports:

Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately.

“A fitting response to the deadly terror attack on anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville would be for officials in states and cities nationwide to immediately announce that every street, every school, every flag, and every public memorial honoring those who took up arms in defense of white supremacy and slavery will be removed or have its name changed to instead honor those who fought for civil rights,” Awad said in a statement to The Daily Caller.

First of all, let’s take a look at who CAIR is.

The article reminds us:

In 2009, CAIR was listed by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme that provided funding to the terror group Hamas.

That case was The Holy Land Foundation trial which revealed the document An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.  This document was discovered accidentally when an alert Maryland State Trooper noticed Ismail Elbarasse videotaping the structural supports of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. A search warrant of Mr. Elbarasse’s home revealed the archival documents of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.

CAIR is no more interested in civil rights than they are interested in promoting the consumption of bacon. Their goal is Sharia Law in America, which would deny the women of America civil rights. To CAIR, the erasing of American history would simply be a step in the direction of bringing Sharia Law to America. Remember what the Taliban did to the Buddhist statues in Afghanistan. CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Taliban are all cut of the same cloth. The all have the same goal, although they have different ideas on how to reach that goal.

The people calling for the removal of memorials remembering the Confederacy need to take a close look at who they have aligned themselves with. Removing monuments is the first step to rewriting history. That is not a road we want to go down. America is not perfect. We have made mistakes, but rewriting history does not change what was.

The Rukus Is Political

Thomas.gov is the website that lists the activities of Congress, lists the bills passed, and bills proposed. A little research on the site will lead you to the Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act. H. R. 3525 which became Public Law No: 107-173. on 5/14/2002.

This is a section from that law:

(Sec. 306) Prohibits the admission of an alien from a country designated to be a state sponsor of international terrorism (as defined by this Act) unless the Secretary has determined that such individual does not pose a risk or security threat to the United States.

It is not compassionate to open your front door to someone who might want to harm your family, neither it is compassionate to open you border to someone who does not want to assimilate into your culture but only wants to destroy it. ISIS has already stated that it has placed operatives among the refugee population. How are we supposed to determine which refugees are those operatives? One of the government exhibits from the Holy Land Foundation Trial is ” An Explanatory Memorandum: From the Archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.” (Government Exhibit 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G in U.S. v Holy Land Foundation, et al.) This document explains the Muslim Brotherhood plan for converting America to a Sharia state through Civilization Jihad. This document needs to be read by all Americans. The danger is real. Our media is not reporting on the danger. By the time many of us wake up, it may be too late.

 

The British Papers Report What The American Media Chooses To Ignore

There is an old adage, “You are known by the company you keep.” Generally speaking, the idea is that if you hang around with someone with questionable ideas, you probably share some of those ideas. Well, the American media seems to have overlooked this concept in their reporting on Hillary Clinton. We’ve all seen a list of the close friends of the Clintons who have either served time in jail, been indicted, and met with unfortunate accidents. That list speaks for itself, but there is some disturbing information about a close associate of Hillary Clinton posted in the U.K. Mail  today. As far as I know, the only American news outlet that is carrying this story is The New York Post.

Evidently Huma Abedin was assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs until as late as 2008.  The U.K. Mail describes the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs as “a radical Muslim publication that opposed women’s rights and blamed the US for 9/11.” Ms. Abedin is listed on the masthead of the publication beginning in 2002. Her mother was the editor.

The magazine espoused ideas that I don’t believe American women would appreciate:

Shortly after Clinton gave her seminal ‘women’s rights are human rights,’ speech in Beijing in 1995, the journal published a series of articles hitting back at the speech.

A 1996 piece titled ‘Women’s rights are Islamic rights’, that appeared to claim that women who wore revealing clothes were inviting rape.

The author wrote that revealing clothes ‘directly translates into unwanted results of sexual promiscuity and irresponsibility and indirectly promote violence against women.’

It also states that single or working moms and gay couples with children should not be classed as a family.

‘A conjugal family established through a marriage contract between a man and a woman, and extended through procreation is the only definition of family a Muslim can accept,’ the author, a Saudi official with the Muslim World League – which funds the journal.

At best, it seems as if Ms. Abedin might not be in tune with Mrs. Clinton’s ideas on women’s rights. The magazine also supports female genital mutilation, which unfortunately is now happening in Muslim communities in America despite the fact that it is illegal.

A few years ago Michele Bachmann attempted to get the story of Huma Abedin’s background out, but was shouted down by people who either do not understand or choose to ignore the concept of civilization jihad. Government Exhibit 003-0085 3:04-CR-240-G in U.S. v Holy Land Foundation, et al. explains the tactics being used by the Muslim Brotherhood in America to undermine our Constitution. The placement of Huma Abedin in a high position with a Presidential candidate is an example of civilization jihad.

This is the story behind the document:

August of 2004, an alert Maryland Transportation Authority Police officer observed a woman wearing traditional Islamic garb videotaping the support structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and conducted a traffic stop. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Ismail Elbarasse and detained on an outstanding material witness war-rant issued in Chicago, Illinois, in connection with fundraising for Hamas.

The FBI’s Washington Field Office subsequently executed a search warrant on Elbarasse’s residence in Annandale, Virginia. In the basement of his home, a hidden sub-basement was found. The contents of the sub-basement proved to be the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America.

Among the 80 banker-boxes worth of documents discovered there were papers that confirmed what investigators and counterterrorism experts had long suspected and contended about the myriad Muslim-American groups in the United States: nearly all of them are controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Therefore, in accordance with the supremacist Islamic doctrine known as shariah, such groups are hostile to this country, its Constitution and freedoms. The documents make clear the groups’ sole objectives are to implement Islamic law in America in furtherance of re-establishing the global caliphate.

One of the most important of these documents made public to date was entered into evidence during the Holy Land Foundation trial. It amounted to the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan for the United States and was entitled, “An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.” The Explanatory Memorandum was written in 1991 by a member of the Board of Directors for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America and senior Hamas leader named Mohamed Akram. It had been approved by the Brotherhood’s Shura Council and Organizational Conference and was meant for internal review by the Brothers’ leadership in Egypt. It was certainly not intended for public consumption, particularly in the targeted society: the United States.

Huma Abedin has a family connection to the Muslim Brotherhood and the radical agenda associated with Sharia Law. This should not be ignored. She has been Hillary Clinton’s closest aide for a number of years. The fact that the American media has downplayed this connection and that Hillary Clinton is running for President is frightening. Say what you will about Donald Trump, there is no one in his group of advisors with connections to a group that wants to destroy the American republic. A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for your children and grandchildren to grow up in an America that you won’t recognize.

The Filters In The Media

Regardless of whether or not it is admitted, we are engaged in a war with radical Islam. The enemy is inside our gates and influencing our media, government policy, and national security apparatus. (see rightwinggranny.com) We have reached the point that as consumers of news we need to be aware of the political leanings of all sources and the political connections of all reporters. Major news outlets are not telling us the truth–they are omitting and twisting information according to their own political aspirations.

For example, yesterday The Clarion Project posted an article yesterday about a recent story (and map) posted by CNN.

The article reports:

A CNN map detailing terror attacks around the world perpetrated during Ramadan has omitted Israel, Nigeria, Niger, Pakistan Somalia, Malaysia, Cameroon and Kenya.

During Ramadan there were also terrorist attacks as yet unattributed to specific groups in Madagascar, Bahrain, Mali and Indonesia, where evidence indicates possible Islamist motives.

Ramadan began on Monday June 6 and culminated on Wednesday July 6.  

On Wednesday, June 8, four people were murdered when gunmen linked to the Islamic State opened fire at a restaurant in Tel Aviv. Hamas praised the attack saying, “This is the first surprise in store for the Zionist enemy during Ramadan.”

CNN apologized for the omission of Israel and released an updated map that included the Jewish state. However, they did not update the map to include attacks on several African and Asian countries.

During Ramadan, many Muslims are encouraged by their mosques to engage in terrorist attacks (jihad) as part of their celebration of the holiday. Because the Obama Administration does not allow the monitoring of what is preached in American mosques, we have no idea which American mosques are specifically preaching jihad. Any amateur sleuth could easily figure this out by looking at the funding of the mosque, but the government does not seem to be capable of figuring that out. Any mosque funded by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA, an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, and a group linked to the Muslim Brotherhood) probably bears a certain amount of watching.

At any rate, if you depend on CNN as your primary news source, I would strongly recommend that you find an additional source to use for frequent fact checking.

Houston, We Have A Problem…

Newsmax posted an article today about the number of ISIS terror attacks thwarted this year in the United States.

The House Homeland Security Committee has the following map posted on their website:

TerrorThreat3TerrorThreat2This is not comforting.

Newsmax reports:

And a year after the U.S.-led coalition began airstrikes against ISIS, they “have largely failed,” according to the monthly “Terror Report Snapshot” released Tuesday by the Republican members of the House Homeland Security Committee.

…Here are some other facts from the report:

  • Since 2014, ISIS has been linked to 14 terrorism plots and 63 arrests or indictments in the U.S.
  • Since early 2014, the majority of jihadist plots in the U.S. have included plans to kill police or U.S. soldiers.
  • Islamic State terrorists have inspired or directed 55 terrorist plots or attacks against the West by the end of July, including 14 in the United States.
  • Nearly twice as many ISIS-linked plots have occurred against the West so far this year — 35 — than in all of last year, which had 20.

What happened in Florida was the result of the Koran’s teaching about homosexuality. In countries ruled by Sharia Law, homosexuals are routinely thrown off of buildings with their hands tied. Execution is seen as the appropriate punishment for homosexuality under Sharia Law.

Yesterday Breitbart.com reported:

Between 2001 and 2013, the U.S. permanently resettled nearly 30,000 Afghan migrants on green cards. According to Pew, nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) support sharia law as official law.

As legal immigrants, these migrants will be granted lifetime resettlement privileges will be given automatic work permits, welfare access, and the ability to become voting citizens.

Between 2001 and 2013, the United States permanently resettled 1.5 million Muslim immigrants throughout the United States.

In the next five years, without changes to our autopilot visa dispensations, the U.S. will permanently resettle a Muslim population larger than the entire population of Washington D.C.

Islam as practiced according to the Koran is not a religion of peace. There are peaceful Muslims, but they are afraid to speak out about what is going on in many of the mosques. The Obama Administration has chosen to turn a blind eye to what is happening in our mosques. Have you ever wondered how small Islamic communities have the money to build large Islamic centers and mosques? Many of them are funded through the Islamic Society of North America (named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial) or funded indirectly through Saudi Arabia (the country that financed the 911 hijackers). Western civilization is under attack. Both the Sunni and Shiite Muslims want to set up a worldwide caliphate run by Sharia Law. Their only disagreement is about who will control the caliphate and where it will be headquartered. It is time for America (and the rest of western civilization) to wake up and pay attention.

Bringing The Wolf Into The Henhouse

As the Egyptian government attempts to deal with the constant threat of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, President Obama is bringing people connected to the Muslim Brotherhood into high offices in the American government.

On Monday, The Clarion Project posted an article posted an article about the appointment of Zaki Barzinji to be the new liaison to the Muslim-American community.

The article reports:

The official, Zaki Barzinji, previously served as the deputy director of intergovernmental affairs for Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (more on that further down in this article), who is now under investigation for possible political corruption. Before that, Barzinji was the president of the Muslim Youth of North America, which describes itself as the youth wing of ISNA (Islamic Society of North America).

ISNA was labeled an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing trial in U.S. history, with the Justice Department specifically listing it as an entity of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood’s own documents list ISNA at the top of its list of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”

ISNA’s links to the Brotherhood and Hamas are laid out in bipartisan legislation titled the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act. The bill now has over 75 supporters in the House and Senate.

How did Zaki Barzinji rise through the ranks in ISNA and McAuliffe’s office to become the new associate director of public engagement for the White House?

He is the grandson of a prominent Islamist leader named Jamal Barzinji, who passed away last year.  Indeed, Jamal Barzinji was a founder and/or senior official in virtually every group identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front in America. He also frequently donated to political campaigns. He was nearly prosecuted, but the Obama Justice Department dropped the planned indictment.  

On June 1, Frank Gaffney, Jr. at the Center for Security Policy posted the following:

…President Obama has just appointed as his Muslim American community liaison a third-generation Muslim Brotherhood operative: Zaki Barzinji. The practical effect of this appointment will be more Brotherhood influence in U.S. policy – and less security for Americans in this country, as well as overseas.

If this information does not disturb you, I strongly suggest that you read government exhibit 3-85.pdf from the Holy Land Foundation Trial. The English translation of the document begins on Page 16.

I have told the story of the Holy Land Foundation Trial on this site before, but in case you are new to this site, here are the basics from The Dallas Morning News:

The latter (government exhibit 3-85 pdf) refers to where the original 15-page document (the exhibits have an attached, government-created translation) was found — in the home of unindicted co-conspirator Ismail Elbarasse.

In 2004, the FBI searched his Virginia home, where they found a trove of Muslim Brotherhood archival material. The Brotherhood is the parent organization of Hamas, the terrorist organization that the Holy Land defendants were ultimately convicted of supporting.

According to published reports, authorities in Maryland arrested Elbarasse after spotting his wife videotaping portions of a major Chesapeake Bay bridge while they rode across it in their SUV.

As we pointed out during the first trial, the document has continued to take on a life of its own, way beyond the HLF case.

The Muslim Brotherhood holds a number of powerful positions in the American government. The infiltration has been going in since the late 1980’s. We need to education ourselves to the threat and hold our government officials accountable for what is going on. The Muslim Brotherhood believes that the only law Americans should obey is Sharia Law. One of their goals is setting up courts that will be supportive of Sharia Law. If you are not troubled by that, remember that Sharia Law supports wife beating, honor killings, punishing rape victims, female genital mutilation, and other things that should not be condoned in our country.

It is time for Americans to wake up.

I Am Sure This Is Just An Incredible Coincidence

If Americans want to be fully informed on Islamic terrorism–who it is, what it is, and how it works–they need to be familiar with the Holy Land Foundation trial and the government exhibits that are filed with it. In 2008 the directors of the Holy Land Foundation (America’s largest Islamic charity) were convicted on multiple charges of terrorism financing. The trial revealed a lot about the Muslim Brotherhood in America–its plans, its operations, and its affiliated groups. The government exhibits from the Holy Land Foundation trial are available on line. They are in Arabic, but the English translation follows. There were also numerous Muslim organizations named in the trial as unindicted co-conspirators. Some of the groups with known associations to the Muslim Brotherhood are CAIR, ICNA, MSA, ISNA and others. For further information about the Holy Land Foundation Trial and these organizations, I suggest reading Shariah the Threat to America, the Team B II Report (available on Amazon) and the Muslim Mafia by P. David Gaubatz (available on Amazon). Meanwhile, what follows is an illustration of why all Americans need this information.

Yesterday the Daily Caller posted an article about Rafia Farook, the mother of San Bernardino terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook. Mrs. Farook is an active member of Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), a Muslim organization that promotes the establishment of a caliphate and has ties to a radical Pakistani political group called Jamaat-e-Islami.

The relationship between Mrs. Farook and ICNA was uncovered by MSNBC when they ransacked (I’m sorry, searched) the shooters’ apartment after the FBI was finished with the crime scene. Either the FBI failed to uncover this link or they simply forgot to mention it.

The article reports:

Al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki has spoken at the group’s events. He spoke at an ICNA event in Baltimore in 2002, though the group has said that al-Awlaki was not radicalized at that time. Al-Awlaki exchanged emails with Nidal Hasan, the Army major who killed 13 people in a terrorist attack at Fort Hood in Nov. 2009. Al-Awlaki was killed by a U.S. drone strike in 2011 in Yemen.

Another ICNA member was indicted in April on federal terrorism charges. Noelle Valentzas and another woman were charged with plotting an attack on New York City similar to the attacks at the Boston Marathon.

Why are these people still building and running mosques in America? This is not a religious group–this is a terrorist group. Freedom of religion does not include freedom to plan terrorist attacks against America.

Manipulation At Its Finest

One of the most effective ways to manipulate people is through guilt. A well-written news article about a poor victim of some horrible right-wing activity is a favorite of our left-leaning media. That method is being used now to encourage Americans to let down their guard regarding who enters the country. However, every now and then the efforts of the left to make the right look bad totally backfire. The ericontheradio website posted an amazing example of this phenomenon today. The story also serves as a warning to Americans to be aware of the associations of some supposedly moderate Muslim groups. Whenever you hear CAIR  (Council on American-Islamic Relations) mentioned anywhere, remember that CAIR was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial. If you are not familiar with the trial, look it up and read the exhibits. They are guaranteed to curl your hair.

The article at ericontheradio reports:

Nonetheless, MSNBC a few years ago highlighted the terrible plight of Saadiq Long. He became the poster child for opposing the “no fly list.”

…Long’s cause got international attention when Glenn Greenwald published an article at The Guardian saying that Long was “effectively exiled from his own country.” Kevin Drum of Mother Jones branded it the “Kafkaesque World of the No-Fly List.” CAIR has 22 article entries related to Long’s case on its website.

After several months of wrangling between his CAIR attorneys and the Department of Homeland Security, Long was temporarily removed from the no-fly list and allowed to return to Oklahoma.

Once home, however, he was still subject to FBI surveillance according to claims he made during a press conference with his CAIR handlers.

After an incident with local police and the FBI, Long was apparently placed back on the no-fly list, preventing his return to Qatar.

Eventually he was taken off the list and allowed to return to Qatar. If the story ended there, it would be fine. However, Long and several family were arrested earlier this month near the Turkey-Syria border as members of an ISIS cell. But he was such a nice-looking young man…

Libya Does Matter

Erick Stakelbeck posted a story on his blog entitled, “Why You Should Care About Libya.” I will admit that I never understood the need to remove Muammar Gaddafi after he began cooperating with the west in the War on Terror. If you remember, as a result of the American invasion of Iraq, in December 2003, Libya renounced its possession of weapons of mass destruction, decommissioning its chemical and nuclear weapons programs. At that point Libya’s relationship with the United States improved and seemed to be moving in a positive direction. Admittedly, his civil rights record was questionable at best, but it was no worse than any government that has followed him.

So why should I care about Libya?

The article explains:

While the West’s attention is focused on ISIS’s rampage through Iraq and Syria, Libya is fast becoming one of the world’s most dangerous and unstable countries–a hotbed of ISIS and Al Qaeda activity and ravaged by civil war. ISIS now wields a major presence in the Libyan cities of Sirte (where it recently seized a civilian airport) and Derna (where it has been battling other jihadist groups for supremacy) along the Mediterranean coast and is making further moves elsewhere in the country.

ISIS has also wasted no time extending its genocide against the Christians of Iraq and Syria to the shores of North Africa. In February, ISIS released a horrific video showing its jihadists beheading 21 Egyptian Christians on a Libyan beach. It issued a similar video in April showing the beheading and shooting of over a dozen Ethiopian Christians in Libya. And just last week, ISIS reportedly kidnapped 88 more Christians–this time, Eritreans–who were refugees traveling through Libya. These Eritrean Christians’ outlook for survival is obviously grim.

So why should you care about ISIS’s advances in Libya? For starters, Libya is rapidly becoming a terrorist safe haven–the kind of place where jihadists can train freely and plot attacks against the United States (see: pre-9/11 Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, and the ISIS-held territories of Iraq and Syria). That’s bad enough. Worse still is Libya’s geographic proximity to Europe–it lies just 600 miles across the Mediterranean from Italy. And according to a recent Fox News report, ISIS is wasting no time using its Libya strongholds to transit into Europe:

“Refugees” have been pouring into Europe from Libya. In recent weeks, the Italians have picked up at least thirty ISIS fighters who have come into Italy from Libya. This is a threat to Europe and eventually to America.

So what was the regime change in Libya about? What was the Arab Spring really about? In his book Catastrophic Failure, Stephen Coughlin examines the timeline of the Arab Spring. He cites a Der Spiegel article explaining the goal of Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood to bring about the collapse of the Arab governments that were not based on Islamic Law. America, unfortunately, came down on the wrong side of history in the Arab Spring and simply strengthened Al Qaeda and helped bring chaos to the Middle East.

The Egyptian government has moved against the Muslim Brotherhood, sentencing many of its members to death, including former President Mohammed Morsi. Again, the civil rights record of the new Egyptian government is not good, but they have restored order and are eliminating the threat of the Muslim Brotherhood to Egypt. American needs to wake up to the threat the Muslim Brotherhood is to America. I strongly recommend reading “An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America,” by the Muslim Brotherhood operative Mohamed Akram. This is one of the government exhibits from the Holy Land Foundation Trial. You can find more information at Discover the Networks.

There are many lessons we can learn from Libya and many reasons why Libya matters.

A Tribute To James Foley

National Review posted an article on line today about the death of James Foley. James Foley was beheaded by ISIS. The video was posted online with a threat to America regarding the other Americans the terrorist organization is holding. James Foley showed himself to be a man of courage as he faced death from these barbarians.

The article reports:

The video, entitled “A Message to America,” begins with President Obama’s announcement of military operations against ISIS. It then transitions to a sandy hilltop, where James Foley kneels before a man in black coveralls and a full black mask. Foley is wearing an orange jumpsuit and begins to read a forced message: He is made to tell us that “he died” the day that America intervened against the Islamic State. He’s made to blame his brother, a U.S. Air Force serviceman, and President Obama for his looming death. He’s made to state that he wishes he had “more time” and “the hope of freedom” (the Islamic State revels in teasing its prisoners with lost hope) to see his family again. Foley is made to say that he wishes he “wasn’t an American.”

Then, waving a knife, in a British accent dripping with hatred, the ISIS fanatic speaks.

He complains about American interference in Iraq. He claims that the Islamic State represents all Muslims and thus possesses inherent moral sovereignty.

He then beheads Mr. Foley.

This is what we are up against. We ignore it at our own peril. If you don’t believe that America is in any danger, google “The Holy Land Foundation Trial” and look at the exhibits. Included in the exhibits is the Muslim Brotherhood‘s plan to take over America.

The Holy Land Foundation Trial was the result of a traffic stop by a Maryland Transportation Authority Police officer in August 2004. The officer observed a woman wearing traditional Islamic garb videotaping the support structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. The officer stopped the vehicle and found that the driver, Ismail Elbarasse, had an outstanding material witness warrant issued in Chicago in a Hamas case. After obtaining a warrant, the FBI searched Elbarasse’s home and found a hidden sub-basement. In the basement were the archives of the Muslim Brotherhood in North America. Those archives formed the exhibits in the Holy Land Foundation Trial. Every American should read them.

The First Amendment Under Attack

As you read this story, remember that the Islamic definition of slander has nothing to do with whether or not the facts stated are true or false–it has to do with whether or not what is said reflects positively on Islam. Reliance of the Traveller, described as the classic manual of Islamic law, defines slander in three ways, first, to mention of your brother that which he would dislike, second, revealing anything whose disclosure is resented, and third, anything that makes Muslims look bad. That leaves a lot of room for a statement to be called slander.

On Wednesday, ClickOrlando reported that Dr. Jonathan Matusitz, a communications instructor at the University of Central Florida, has been charged by the Coalition for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) with being anti-Islamic. Dr. Matusitz mentioned in a lecture that the reason that the White House’s foreign policy was so ineffective in combating Islamic terrorism is that the White House is in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood. That is an easily proven fact (use the search engine at the top of this page to find past articles on the Muslim Brotherhood). CAIR has charged Dr. Matusitz with “teaching hate.”

If you have not yet looked at the documents from the Holy Land Foundation Trial, please take the time to do so. Not only do these documents outline the plan to take away democracy in America and replace it with Sharia Law (democracy and Sharia Law are incompatible), but CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial.

Thank goodness the University of Central Florida is protecting Dr. Matusitz’s First Amendment rights. I hope they will continue to do so.

Stuck On Stupid

Americans need to be careful who they listen to when it comes to Islam and what it stands for. There is a concept in Islam called ‘taqiyya.’ This concept is generally described as lying for the sake of Islam. Lying to infidels is particularly encouraged. This is a concept we need to remember when we are told that, “Islam is a religion of peace.” If that is true, name one Islamic country that is peaceful and allows freedom for its citizens.

Anyway, with that in mind, I am reporting on a story posted at TampaBayOnline in July of this year. The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Tampa has requested that the state of Florida sever its ties with instructor Sam Kharoba, a state-contracted counter-terrorism instructor. Please remember that CAIR was an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Trial in 2008. There is no way this organization wants American law enforcement people to be informed correctly on counter-terrorism.

The article reports:

Kharoba owns a for-profit company called the Counter Terrorism Operations Center. His company was hired by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to offer the training sessions.

The FDLE is reviewing CAIR’s concerns, spokeswoman Gretl Plessinger said.

The department has “received positive feedback” from people taking Kharoba’s courses, Plessinger said.

I have to admire the nerve of CAIR in protesting this course. Would the Mafia have been so cheeky as to complain when the FBI was learning how to deal with them?

Who Is Vetting These People ?

Last week we saw the media (and John McCain) attack Michele Bachmann for requesting an investigation of the influence of Muslim Brotherhood in Washington, D. C. Breitbart.com posted an interesting article last week on some of the more obvious problems with the Muslim Brotherhood and its relationship to Washington.

The article at Breitbart cites the case of Louay Safi, a Syrian-American Islamic leader who has been actively involved with groups close to the Obama White House.

The article reports:

Safi himself has been fairly influential in government circles. For several years, he was only one of two endorsing agents for the Pentagon’s Muslim military chaplain program as Director of Leadership Development for the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). He was also responsible for teaching about Islam to American troops deploying to Afghanistan and Iraq.

It should be noted that the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) Trial (the largest terrorism financing trial in American history) in 2008.

The book, Shariah The Threat To America, states:

Thanks to the HLF trial, it is now public knowledge that nearly every major Muslim organization in the United States is actually controlled by the MB (Muslim Brotherhood) or a derivative organization. Consequently, most of the Muslim-American groups of any prominence in America are now known to be, as a matter of fact, hostile to the United States and its Constitution.

So where does this lead us?

The article at Breitbart reports:

Safi himself has been fairly influential in government circles. For several years, he was only one of two endorsing agents for the Pentagon’s Muslim military chaplain program as Director of Leadership Development for the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). He was also responsible for teaching about Islam to American troops deploying to Afghanistan and Iraq.

So it was particularly curious last year when Safi reappeared last August as the director of the political office of the newly-formed Syrian National Council (SNC). His profile appears on the SNC’s website, and pictures taken at the unveiling of the SNC in Istanbul shows Safi front and center of the leadership.

His new SNC role and his connections to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood were first reported by the Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report.

Now Safi’s presence on Al-Jazeera is nearly ubiquitous when it comes to matters concerning Syria and the efforts of the SNC and its subordinate Free Syrian Army to topple the regime of Bashar Assad:

But what is the relationship between the SNC and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood, historically one of the most violent Muslim Brotherhood offshoots in the world?

The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and its Islamist allies have complete control of the SNC–as testified to in multiple media reports, including the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Michele Bachmann is correct in questioning ties between the Muslim Brotherhood and  those in power in Washington, D. C. The rest of us should be asking those same questions.
