Brigitte Gabriel to give a keynote speech at UN “The Persecution of Christians in the Middle East”
Dear Elaine,
I am proud to announce that I will be giving a keynote speech at the United Nations headquarter in New York City April 17, 2015 calling the UN and its member states to recognize the horrors being inflicted on Christians throughout the Middle East by the Islamic State and other radical Islamic groups. I am extending you a personal invitation as an ACT for America member to be in the audience and attend this symposium as my guest. 

Event title: “Not Peace But A Sword: The Persecution Of Christians In The Middle East: 
A Threat to International Peace and Security”

This event is an opportunity to warn the world about the systematic slaughter of non-Muslims in the Middle East — and call for action to stop it.
If you’d like to attend in person, please RSVP to Greg Walsh, gwalsh@actforamerica.org with your name as it appears on your driver’s license or other photo ID for security purposes. We need all names by April 10th.
The event is sponsored by Palau's Permanent Mission to the United Nations and will take place at the ECOSO chamber from 3:00 PM – 7:00 PM and will be broadcast live from the United Nations in New York.
This is a historic opportunity. On April 17, we will have the chance to speak directly to leaders who have the power to put a stop to this new genocide. I want you to be a part of it!
Always devoted,
Brigitte Gabriel

SHARIA: THE UNIFYING IDEOLOGY AMONG MODERN TERROR GROUPS
By Brigitte Gabriel

Dear Elaine,

Boko Haram and the Islamic State. Lashkar Taibi. Al-Shabab.
We hear these names all the time used synonymously with terrorism. Commentators and political pundits try to draw them into distinct boxes by geography or by their ethnicity.
But in actuality there is a deep connection among all these groups and their barbaric practices — an ideology that is at the very heart of the danger facing Western civilization, and that we are working every day to stop.
We’ve all known about the horrors of ISIS — an English acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. In recent months the group has grown beyond the last two letters of its title. The Islamic State is now active in Libya and is expanding its influence rapidly.
In India, Lashkar Taibi is actively working to bring about the fall of the Indian Republic, destroy Hinduism and Judaism, and see the disputed areas of Kashmir and Jammu made part of Pakistan, which would then itself become part of a larger pan-Islamic state.
In the Horn of Africa, Al-Shabab continues to fight to gain a foothold for sharia in the power vacuum that has existed since the early 1990s. And in Nigeria, Boko Haram kidnaps schoolgirls, murders Christians and Jews, and grinds those under its rule into ever-deeper misery and oppression.
The ideology that bonds all these groups together is a strict adherence to sharia law — the all-encompassing legal code of Islam, as practiced during the early days of the original empire that grew from Mohammad’s conquest of the Arabian Peninsula.
Most if not all of these groups talk about the desire to establish sharia rule in their lands. Much of the horror we see on the evening news from the Islamic State comes from their dedication to apply their 7th century views on everything from slavery to women’s rights to every aspect of life.
People unfortunate enough to find themselves under sharia rule find themselves in a place with little to no freedoms at all. Virtually every aspect of their lives is dictated by the omnipresent religious rules. Women are held as little more than property. They can be beaten and in many cases killed with impunity.
Girls have no chance at an education. Indeed, Boko Haram’s very name means “Western education is forbidden.”
In the lands of sharia, those who dare to profess a faith other than Islam are, under the best of circumstances, treated as second-class citizens, and more often than not rounded up for persecution or murder.
Just last year in Mosul, Islamic State fighters went house-to-house, finding Christians and marking their houses with an Arabic character — an abbreviation for “nasrani,” a pejorative term rooted in the word Nazarene. The choice given to those non-Muslims was simple: convert, pay a fine, or face “death by the sword.”
And as in so many other countries ruled by jihadis, the only thing more prevalent than efforts to kill and displace Jews is the perpetual stream of threats against Israel.
What our national security leaders have at best failed to teach the public — or at worst failed to realize themselves — is that these groups are not composed of lunatics, or any group of “lone wolves” that have congregated together in common madness.
These horrors are not the actions of a few malcontents in need of jobs or social programs. Graeme Wood put it very well in his story in this month’s Atlantic:
“The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers, drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.”
Rather than the irrational acts of madmen, the beheadings, kidnappings, and terrorist attacks around the world are the end result of a long-developed reading of Islam and what it requires of its followers.
Under their ideology, the only permissible form of government is that of a theocracy, specifically a revived caliphate, ruled by one man who will follow the will of Allah to rule the entire world.
It is this ideology – that sharia is the only acceptable law, and those who will not accept its rule must be destroyed – that we fight against. Jihadis know no color, they know no national borders, and they cannot be placed into neat boxes.
They only know that those who refuse to accept the rule of their caliph must die.
This is what we’re fighting against. A handful of people can change the world, for good or ill. It’s up to each of us to sound the alarm and be agents for change, to defend the country that we love against this great threat.

FORMER U.S. SUPPORTED LIBYAN LEADER IS NOW
HEAD OF ISLAMIC STATE IN LIBYA

Congressman Trey Gowdy reports “huge gaps” in
State Dept. Benghazi Emails


Dear Elaine,

The news over the past week confirms what we already know — the threat to our country from jihadists is growing. But thanks to you, some of our leaders are finally starting to realize just how grave the threat we face has become.
In the past week we’ve learned that not only has Libya become a safe-haven and staging area for the murderous band of terrorists known as the Islamic State, but also another major group of Islamist radicals has sworn it’s allegiance to the group as well.
Benghazi is now completely under Islamic State control. Abdelhakim Belhadj, the head of a faction that at one time received U.S. support in the effort to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi, is now reported to be the head of the IS in Libya. The group is now using Libya as safe haven away from its main area of operation in Syria and western Iraq.
This comes at the same time that Boko Haram, the barbaric group best known for kidnapping hundreds of women and girls in sub-Saharan Africa to become “brides” for the groups fighters or sold as slaves, swore their allegiance to the Islamic State.
Boko Haram’s open embrace of the Islamic State is a critical event. Everything about Boko Haram cries out to the barbaric, hateful nature of their movement, and how they are completely opposed to Western civilization.
Even the name of this group speaks to the danger they present, not only in the form of terrorist attacks, but the very way of life they intend to impose on others. Boko Haram translates to “Western learning is forbidden.”
This is a group that has declared that it will kidnap more women and sell them into slavery, and that it will prevent anyone in their territory from receiving anything other than a traditional Islamic “education.”
And yet even as late as 2011, our national security leadership resisted listing Boko Haram as a terrorist organization. For decades, political correctness blinded those charged with defending our country to the clear and present danger represented by jihadis.
Our leaders also thought they could work with “moderate” rebels in Libya to transform the dictatorship into a democracy, ignoring the terrorist ties of those who were actually fighting on the ground.
But thanks to you, that time is quickly coming to an end.
Congressman Trey Gowdy, the former prosecutor leading the House inquiry into just what happened at Benghazi, told reporters this weekend that there are “huge gaps” in the State Department’s email record surrounding the attack on Benghazi.
The committee Rep. Gowdy chairs, the House Select Committee on Benghazi, has issued a subpoena to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton requesting all of the emails routed through her personal email server, which we learned this week was her exclusive means of email communication during her time at the State Department.
Whatever comes from this investigation, it was you, acting together in support of concern for our country that first sounded the alarm, which has finally begun to wake up America’s national security apparatus.
Before ACT for America became involved, many of our leaders refused to call Benghazi a terrorist attack for a significant period of time following the attack. Instead, they chose to blame what was effectively an act of war not on terrorism, but an alleged protest over a YouTube video.
It was the combined efforts of people just like you that forced Congress to realize just what a disaster Benghazi was — and to finally take action to find out just what has gone so wrong inside the institutions charged with defending our country.
The hour is late, but many are beginning to wake to the threat. That’s why we have to keep working to educate our friends and neighbors, as well as our elected representatives.
The threat is grave, but working together, we can and WILL save our country, and our way of life!

A HISTORIC WEEK FOR ISRAEL AND THE UNITED STATES
Registration Now Open for Our 2015 National Conference
REGISTER HERE NOW!
https://www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin.aspx?EventID=1637409


Dear Elaine,

This has been a historic week for the U.S. and Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave a powerful speech before Congress on Tuesday, making it very clear that unless our national security leadership changes course quickly, Iran will get a nuclear weapon.
In fact, the deal that is currently under discussion would not only fail to block Iran’s progress to the bomb, it would guarantee that Iran would become a nuclear power in just over 10 years!
Many of our leaders in Washington didn’t want to hear this uncomfortable truth. They worked hard to make the Prime Minister’s appearance a political issue, and to disqualify his message before he even spoke.
After watching this speech, it’s clear that they failed, and the Prime Minister’s message was strong and clear — if our country does not change course, Israel’s very future is at stake. Even the Washington Post editorial board has called for our leaders to answer the very basic questions raised by the Prime Minister.
If you didn’t see the speech, I hope you will take the time to watch it. I’ve included a link to some highlights. It was truly a historic moment.
Benjamin Netanyahu Speech to Congress - Mar. 3, 2015
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4NDG-wXu75M&feature=youtu.be

As our country and way of life face threats unlike anything they’ve ever seen, Prime Minister Netanyahu made it plain the danger we all face. The nuclear danger that faces Israel today is the danger that the rest of the Western world faces tomorrow.
Prime Minister Netanyahu said it very well: “We must always remember — I'll say it one more time — the greatest dangers facing our world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons.”
Israel is the only democracy and the front line of the defense of Western Civilization in the Middle East. It is a beacon of hope and reason in a region racked by conflict. While much of the area regresses toward medieval barbarism, Israel creates breakthroughs in technology, and medicine.
The world needs Israel as much as Israel needs the world, but a nuclear-armed Iran puts her very existence in jeopardy. Nuclear-armed jihadi terrorists are the greatest threat our civilization may ever face
Radical Islam is not just a threat to American and Israel. It is a threat to Western Civilization everywhere. As I told an audience in Brisbane, Australia this week, my past is your future unless the West wakes up now before it’s too late and stops this evil.
Fortunately, more and more people around the world are waking up to the danger we all face, something I was blessed to see firsthand this week in Australia. Ever since the horrific attack on a café in Sydney in December, Australians have begun to realize that they, too, are on the front lines of the struggle between the West and terrorism.
The message for Australia is the same as the message for every other Western country. It only takes a handful of dedicated people to change the world — for good or evil.
That’s why I’m so excited to announce our National Conference for September 8th and 9th in Washington, D.C. This year’s event is going to be the biggest and best we’ve ever had, with more speakers, more events, and more ways for you to learn how to help in the fight to protect our way of life.

Registration is now open! Sign up before April 30th for the 15 percent Early Bird Discount, as well as the best hotel rate we’ve secured — $149 per night at the beautiful and historic Omni Shoreham Hotel.

Report: Obama threatened to fire on Israeli jets attacking Iran
Published yesterday (updated) 01/03/2015 12:53


BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) – A Kuwaiti newspaper reported Saturday that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014. 

Al-Jarida newspaper quoted "well-placed" sources as saying that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had taken a decision to carry out airstrikes against Iran's nuclear program after consultations with his minister of defense Moshe Yaalon and foreign minister Avigdor Liberman in the presence of top security commanders. 
The decision came, according to al-Jarida, after Israel revealed that the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back. 
According to the report, Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army's chief of staff Beni Gants to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran's nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel's security. 
The sources added that Gants and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets even carried out experimental flights in Iran's airspace after they managed to break through radars. 
However, an Israeli minister "who has good ties with the US administration revealed Netanyahu's plans to Secretary of State John Kerry" and as a result Obama then threatened to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran. 
Netanyahu had to abort the operation and since then relations between Israel and the United States have been declining, according to the sources quoted in the report.

Dear Elaine,
PUMP is an eye-opening movie that shows how YOU can end our oil addiction. It tells the story of our dependence on foreign oil and all its trappings—including the many lives lost in defense of our oil interests in the Middle East and the billions of dollars diverted to fund radical terrorist organizations.
PUMP reveals to us solutions that can end this terrible cycle in less than 10 years, and at the same time strengthen our national security, save families thousands of dollars a year and create new jobs.
ACT for America is very concerned about good people being fooled and lulled into the trap of thinking that the current low fuel prices will somehow remain. OPEC has simply flooded the market to bring the price down in order to bankrupt, damage or delay as many U.S. drilling and fracking operations that they possibly can.
After the maximum damage has been done to OPEC’s U.S. competitors, rest assured that high oil prices will return to your local pump.
Are you tired of being taken for a ride?
Don’t wait, download or rent your copy of PUMP right now:

Brigitte Gabriel of Act For America
Everything Obama gets involved in turns into a soup sandwich. He's truly a clueless wonder.
His immigration amnesty plan gets eviscerated in federal court with no hope of appeal for 18-24 months and Obamacare may go down in flames at the hands of the Supreme Court in the not-too-distant future.
Ideology aside, the utter lack of quality among Obama’s ideas and team members has been a notable, and increasing, feature of his presidency.

Barack Obama’s 'extremism' language irks both sides
His carefully selected words on ISIL have frustrated both the left and the right.
By MICHAEL CROWLEY 2/18/15 8:18 PM EST Updated 2/19/15 10:36 AM EST

Barack Obama’s summit on violent extremism has come under fire from conservatives who are bashing his reluctance to use the words “Islam” and “Muslim” to describe the threat from terror groups like Al Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.
But in his remarks at the event Wednesday, Obama sounded more concerned about mollifying Muslim Americans who feel targeted by government outreach to their communities, promising not to “securitize” the relationship. Even so, some Muslim American and civil rights leaders said much of Wednesday’s session of the White House’s three-day Countering Violent Extremism summit — which focused on the threat from domestic radicals — was based on flawed premises.
Story Continued Below
“Today’s summit confirmed that there are significant reasons for concern about [such] approaches and that none of the hard questions about protection of civil rights and privacy have yet been answered,” said Hina Shamsi, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s national security project. Shamsi, who attended Wednesday’s proceedings, said that while White House officials had listened to such concerns in private meetings, they were given little airing at the summit.
With Americans joining ISIL and Al Qaeda in Syria, and after recent domestic terror attacks in Europe and Canada, the Obama administration is on high alert for terror attacks staged from within. A plan to counter domestic radicalism launched in 2011 under the supervision of Denis McDonough, now Obama’s chief of staff, aimed to identify possible terrorists before they struck through education about risk factors and greater dialogue and trust between law enforcement and local communities. On Wednesday, Obama touted pilot programs in Boston, Los Angeles and Minneapolis-St. Paul that embody such efforts.

Blaming the Victims:
Disinformation on the Crusades from President Obama
ACT for America Education   Newsletters
Dear Elaine,

At ACT for America it is no secret that we have not been in agreement with President Obama’s national security policies, but have always been respectful of the office which he holds.
Unfortunately, President Obama has not always been respectful of others and perhaps the worst example of disrespect came on Thursday at, of all events, the National Prayer Breakfast.
It was in that setting that President Obama delivered remarks comparing the actions of the Islamic State to things done “in the name of Jesus Christ.” Among those things according to President Obama: slavery.
He then cited the Crusades.
Not only were his remarks inappropriate for the occasion and insulting to peace loving Christians everywhere, they were historically inaccurate.
In terms of slavery, while it is true that Christians owned slaves, slavery is not an integral part of Christian doctrine. Jesus did not own slaves. The same cannot be said of Islam. Mohammed owned many slaves and even shared concubines with his warriors. There are today forty different words in Arabic to describe slaves; that’s how prominent slavery has been in the Islamic world. The slave trade in Africa was largely run by Muslims. And when Western nations finally abolished the evil practice of slavery, that slave trade in Africa persisted without them. Remember, Saudi Arabia, the site of Islam’s holiest sites, did not outlaw slavery until the 1960s. Moreover, slavery is still practiced today in parts of Islamic Africa, notably Sudan.
But Obama’s biggest dose of disinformation came in the form of his remarks on the Crusades.
There is a myth that the Crusades were nothing but an aggressive series of wars in which Christendom attacked the Muslim world and committed atrocities.
The reality is somewhat different.
The Crusades actually began after centuries of Islamic jihad invading, pillaging and conquering Christian lands in present-day North Africa and parts of Europe.
After 400 years of systematic genocide of Christians at the hands of Islamic jihadists, Pope Urban II, acting on a plea from the Byzantine emperor whose people had been attacked by Muslim hoards, finally called on “Christ’s heralds” to sound the call for help for the Christians in the east and free the Holy Land.
So, the first Crusade was a defensive action in response to Islamic jihad.
This is an historical fact that our president unfortunately left out of his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast.

Dear Elaine,

ACT for America members need no introduction to the threat that Shariah poses to American law and order, culture and security. But for those who doubted that Shariah could ever surface here in the USA, BreitBart Texas has revealed that Shariah is already operating openly in the great state of Texas. Rest assured, if it’s happening in Texas, it’s happening elsewhere as well…This is why American Laws for American Courts legislation is so crucial in every state in America.


ISLAMIC TRIBUNAL CONFIRMED IN TEXAS;
ATTORNEY CLAIMS ‘IT’S VOLUNTARY’

By Bob Price
27 January 2015

An Islamic Tribunal using Sharia law in Texas has been confirmed by Breitbart Texas. The tribunal is operating as a non-profit organization in Dallas. One of the attorneys for the tribunal said participation and acceptance of the tribunal’s decisions are “voluntary.”

Breitbart Texas spoke with one of the “judges,” Dr. Taher El-badawi. He said the tribunal operates under Sharia law as a form of “non-binding dispute resolution.” El-badawi said their organization is “a tribunal, not arbitration.” A tribunal is defined by Meriam-Webster’s Dictionary as “a court or forum of justice.” The four Islamic attorneys call themselves “judges” not “arbitrators.”

El-badawi said the tribunal follows Sharia law to resolve civil disputes in family and business matters. He said they also resolve workplace disputes.

In matters of divorce, El-badawi said that “while participation in the tribunal is voluntary, a married couple cannot be considered divorced by the Islamic community unless it is granted by the tribunal.” He compared their divorce, known as “Talaq,” as something similar to the Catholic practice of annulment in that the church does not recognize civil divorce proceedings as ending a marriage.

He also said there is a difference between how a man and a woman can request a divorce under their system. “The husband can request the divorce directly from the tribunal,” El-badawi stated. “The wife must go to an Imam who will request the divorce for her.” He called it “two paths to the same result.” The practice of Khula is the process where a wife can initiate a divorce proceeding and where the husband can agree to the divorce in exchange for a financial compensation. It appears the wife must agree to give up any claim to the “dower” that was not already paid or to return it if it has already been paid. Once the financial issues are resolved the husband can then proclaim the Talaq (divorce).

El-badawi said they follow Texas family law when it comes to child support, visitation, and custody. He said that in most cases, custody of children is awarded to the mother.

Breitbart Texas asked what happens when there is a conflict between Sharia law and Texas law. El-badawi said most of the time, the laws are in agreement. When pushed further he admitted that, “we follow Sharia law.” However, he explained, “If the parties are not satisfied with the tribunal’s decision, they do not have to accept it and they can take the matter to Texas civil courts.” He did not say what the social ramifications of rejecting the “judge’s” decision would be.

The website for the Islamic Tribunal states, “The courts of the United States of America are costly and consist of ineffective lawyers. Discontent with the legal system leads many Muslims in America to postpone justice in this world and opt for an audience on the Day of Judgment.”

It goes on to state, “It is with this issue that Muslims here in America are obligated to find a way to solve conflicts and disputes according to the principles of Islamic Law and its legal heritage of fairness and justice in a manner that is reasonable and cost effective.”

In explaining Sharia law, the website states, “Stoning adulterers, cutting of the hands, polyandry and the like (all can be traced in the relevant literature and can be explained in their Islamic legal mentality and rational context in fairness and justice), are mainly a part of Islamic Criminal Law. In fact criminal law within Islam only makes up a fraction of the Shari’ah. It is unscholarly and unfair to generalize that type of understanding, that is Criminal Law, to compromise the whole of Islamic law if we stick to speaking in technical terms.”

The website lists four “judges:” Imam Yusuf Z.Kavakci, Imam Moujahed Bakhach, Imam Zia ul Haque Sheikh and Dr. El-badawi. It states the Islamic Tribunal resolves business disputes, divorce (Talaq) cases, community problems, serious family problems, and Khula.

El-badawi restated several times that participation in the tribunal is voluntary. However, he would not discuss what happens to someone who did not follow their rulings.

Saudi Arabia’s New King Helped Fund Radical Terrorist Groups
Monarch tied to anti-Semitic Muslim clerics, funding of jihad

BY: Adam Kredo
January 26, 2015

http://freebeacon.com/national-security/saudi-arabias-new-king-helped-fund-radical-terror-groups/

King Salman, Saudi Arabia’s newly crowned monarch, has a controversial history of helping to fund radical terror groups and has maintained ties with several anti-Semitic Muslim clerics known for advocating radical positions, according to reports and regional experts.

Salman, previously the country’s defense minister and deputy prime minister, was crowned king last week after his half-brother King Abdullah died at the age of 90.

While Abdullah served as a close U.S. ally and was considered a reformer by many, Saudi Arabia has long been criticized by human rights activists for its treatment of women and its enforcement of a strict interpretation of Islamic law.

President Barack Obama is scheduled to travel to the Saudi capital of Riyadh on Tuesday to pay respects to Abdullah and meet with Salman, who also has been seen as a moderate friend of the United States.

However, throughout his public career in government, Salman has embraced radical Muslim clerics and has been tied to the funding of radical groups in Afghanistan, as well as an organization found to be plotting attacks against America, according to various reports and information provided by David Weinberg, a senior fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.

In 2001, an international raid of the Saudi High Commission for Aid to Bosnia, which Salman founded in 1993, unearthed evidence of terrorist plots against America, according to separate exposés written by Dore Gold, an Israeli diplomat, and Robert Baer, a former CIA officer.

Salman is further accused by Baer of having “personally approved all important appointments and spending” at the International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO), a controversial Saudi charity that was hit with sanctions following the attacks of September 11, 2001, for purportedly providing material support to al Qaeda.

Salman also has been reported to be responsible for sending millions of dollars to the radical mujahedeen that waged jihad in Afghanistan in the 1980s, according to Bruce Riedel, a former CIA officer who is now director of the Brookings Intelligence Project.

“In the early years of the war—before the U.S. and the Kingdom ramped up their secret financial support for the anti-Soviet insurgency—this private Saudi funding was critical to the war effort,” according to Riedel. “At its peak, Salman was providing $25 million a month to the mujahedeen. He was also active in raising money for the Bosnian Muslims in the war with Serbia.”

Salman also has embraced radical Saudi clerics known for their hateful rhetoric against Israel and Jews.

Salman has worked closely with Saleh al-Moghamsy, who tweeted in August 2014 that “Allah only gathered Jews in the land of Palestine to destroy them.”

Al-Moghamsy also stated in a 2014 television interview that “the hatred of Jews toward Muslims is an eternal hatred.” He also claimed in 2012 that Osama bin Laden had died with more “sanctity and honor” than any infidel, or non-Muslim.

Despite this rhetoric, Salman has maintained close ties to al-Moghamsy.

Salman chairs the board of an organization run by al-Moghamsy and has sponsored the cleric’s public events, including a 2013 festival. Salman and al-Moghamsy were pictured many times together at that event, according to regional reports.

Al-Moghamsy also has been an adviser to two of Salman’s sons, one of whom posed for a selfie with the cleric in July.

Salman also has reached out to other hardline preachers, including Safar Hawali, a one-time mentor of Osama bin Laden who has called for non-Muslims to be expelled from Saudi Arabia.

In 2005, Salman called Hawali to inquire about his health and in 2010 praised him upon the release of a book.

While crown prince, Salman also made a point of phoning Aidh Abdullah al-Qarni, a Saudi author currently on the U.S. Terrorist Screening Center’s No Fly List who has praised Hamas and called Israelis “the brothers of apes and pigs.”

Additionally, Salman, in his role as crown prince, has recently visited Saudi Arabia’s grand mufti, the nation’s highest religious authority, who has asserted that 10 is an appropriate age of marriage for girls and called for the destruction of all churches in the Arabian Peninsula.

Weinberg, who has been tracking Salman closely, said that the new monarch is taking up his predecessor’s mantle of moderate reform.

“Just like King Abdullah tried to present himself as a reformer, some are trying to suggest that the new king, Salman, is a moderate who will continue his half-brother’s so-called progressive policies,” Weinberg said. “But just look at where Saudi Arabia is after Abdullah: people are being decapitated and flogged by the state in the streets.”

“Women are systematically oppressed by their own government, and the regime continues to propagate incitement and intolerance,” he continued. “Salman’s background funding mujahedeen abroad and embracing hateful clerics suggests that he is at best a political opportunist who will tolerate continued religious extremism, even if he does not hold such views himself.”

European 'No-Go' Zones for Non-Muslims Proliferating
"Occupation Without Tanks or Soldiers"
by Soeren Kern
August 22, 2011 at 5:00 am
http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/2367/european-muslim-no-go-zones

Islamic extremists are stepping up the creation of "no-go" areas in European cities that are off-limits to non-Muslims.

Many of the "no-go" zones function as microstates governed by Islamic Sharia law. Host-country authorities effectively have lost control in these areas and in many instances are unable to provide even basic public aid such as police, fire fighting and ambulance services.

The "no-go" areas are the by-product of decades of multicultural policies that have encouraged Muslim immigrants to create parallel societies and remain segregated rather than become integrated into their European host nations.

In Britain, for example, a Muslim group called Muslims Against the Crusades has launched a campaign to turn twelve British cities – including what it calls "Londonistan" – into independent Islamic states. The so-called Islamic Emirates would function as autonomous enclaves ruled by Islamic Sharia law and operate entirely outside British jurisprudence.

The Islamic Emirates Project names the British cities of Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, as well as Waltham Forest in northeast London and Tower Hamlets in East London as territories to be targeted for blanket Sharia rule.

In the Tower Hamlets area of East London (also known as the Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets), for example, extremist Muslim preachers, called the Tower Hamlets Taliban, regularly issue death threats to women who refuse to wear Islamic veils. Neighborhood streets have been plastered with posters declaring "You are entering a Sharia controlled zone: Islamic rules enforced." And street advertising deemed offensive to Muslims is regularly vandalized or blacked out with spray paint.

In the Bury Park area of Luton, Muslims have been accused of "ethnic cleansing" by harassing non-Muslims to the point that many of them move out of Muslim neighborhoods. In the West Midlands, two Christian preachers have been accused of "hate crimes" for handing out gospel leaflets in a predominantly Muslim area of Birmingham. In Leytonstone in east London, the Muslim extremist Abu Izzadeen heckled the former Home Secretary John Reid by saying: "How dare you come to a Muslim area."

In France, large swaths of Muslim neighborhoods are now considered "no-go" zones by French police. At last count, there are 751 Sensitive Urban Zones (Zones Urbaines Sensibles, ZUS), as they are euphemistically called. A complete list of the ZUS can be found on a French government website, complete with satellite maps and precise street demarcations. An estimated 5 million Muslims live in the ZUS, parts of France over which the French state has lost control.

Muslim immigrants are taking control of other parts of France too. In Paris and other French cities with high Muslim populations, such as Lyons, Marseilles and Toulouse, thousands of Muslims are closing off streets and sidewalks (and by extension, are closing down local businesses and trapping non-Muslim residents in their homes and offices) to accommodate overflowing crowds for Friday prayers. Some mosques have also begun broadcasting sermons and chants of "Allahu Akbar" via loudspeakers into the streets.

The weekly spectacles, which have been documented by dozens of videos posted on Youtube.com (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here), and which have been denounced as an "occupation without tanks or soldiers," have provoked anger and disbelief. But despite many public complaints, local authorities have declined to intervene because they are afraid of sparking riots.

In the Belgian capital of Brussels (which is 20% Muslim), several immigrant neighborhoods have become "no-go" zones for police officers, who frequently are pelted with rocks by Muslim youth. In the Kuregem district of Brussels, which often resembles an urban war zone, police are forced to patrol the area with two police cars: one car to carry out the patrols and another car to prevent the first car from being attacked. In the Molenbeek district of Brussels, police have been ordered not to drink coffee or eat a sandwich in public during the Islamic month of Ramadan.

In Germany, Chief Police Commissioner Bernhard Witthaut, in an August 1 interview with the newspaper Der Westen, revealed that Muslim immigrants are imposing "no-go" zones in cities across Germany at an alarming rate.

The interviewer asked Witthaut: "Are there urban areas – for example in the Ruhr – districts and housing blocks that are "no-go areas," meaning that they can no longer be secured by the police?" Witthaut replied: "Every police commissioner and interior minister will deny it. But of course we know where we can go with the police car and where, even initially, only with the personnel carrier. The reason is that our colleagues can no longer feel safe there in twos, and have to fear becoming the victim of a crime themselves. We know that these areas exist. Even worse: in these areas crimes no longer result in charges. They are left 'to themselves.' Only in the worst cases do we in the police learn anything about it. The power of the state is completely out of the picture."

In Italy, Muslims have been commandeering the Piazza Venezia in Rome for public prayers. In Bologna, Muslims repeatedly have threatened to bomb the San Petronio cathedral because it contains a 600-year-old fresco inspired by Dante's Inferno which depicts Mohammed being tormented in hell.

In the Netherlands, a Dutch court ordered the government to release to the public a politically incorrect list of 40 "no-go" zones in Holland. The top five Muslim problem neighborhoods are in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht. The Kolenkit area in Amsterdam is the number one Muslim "problem district" in the country. The next three districts are in Rotterdam – Pendrecht, het Oude Noorden and Bloemhof. The Ondiep district in Utrecht is in the fifth position, followed by Rivierenwijk (Deventer), Spangen (Rotterdam), Oude Westen (Rotterdam), Heechterp/ Schieringen (Leeuwarden) and Noord-Oost (Maastricht).

In Sweden, which has some of the most liberal immigration laws in Europe, large swaths of the southern city of Malmö – which is more than 25% Muslim – are "no-go" zones for non-Muslims. Fire and emergency workers, for example, refuse to enter Malmö's mostly Muslim Rosengaard district without police escorts. The male unemployment rate in Rosengaard is estimated to be above 80%. When fire fighters attempted to put out a fire at Malmö's main mosque, they were attacked by stone throwers.

In the Swedish city of Gothenburg, Muslim youth have been hurling petrol bombs at police cars. In the city's Angered district, where more than 15 police cars have been destroyed, teenagers have also been pointing green lasers at the eyes of police officers, some of whom have been temporarily blinded.

In Gothenburg's Backa district, youth have been throwing stones at patrolling officers. Gothenburg police have also been struggling to deal with the problem of Muslim teenagers burning cars and attacking emergency services in several areas of the city.

According to the Malmö-based Imam Adly Abu Hajar: "Sweden is the best Islamic state."

Dear Elaine,

We were all horrified to hear about last week’s violent attack on the French publication,Charlie Hebdo. Americans value, perhaps more than any other right, their freedom of speech.

The Free Speech Defense Act is legislation that has been introduced in states across the nation that protects American authors, journalists and artists from being dragged into foreign courts over frivolous libel charges in jurisdictions that do not respect, value and protect freedom of speech and of the press.

ACT for America has worked to pass Free Speech Defense Act legislation in 10 states, and our members are working to see that this important law is passed from coast to coast.

Will you help us? For more information on what you can do in your community, contact us at info@actforamerica.org and place “FREE SPEECH DEFENSE ACT” in the subject line.



Largest Islamic Body in the World Calls for More Anti-Free Speech Laws in Wake ofCharlie Hebdo Attack

By Patrick Poole

http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2015/01/12/organization-of-islamic-cooperation-calls-for-more-speech-codes-defamation-laws-in-wake-of-charlie-hebdo-attack/

Last week’s terror attack targeting French magazine Charlie Hebdo's office in Paris has sparked a global conversation about the nature of free speech, with the “Je Suis Charlie” hashtag in support of the murdered Charlie Hebdo staff going viral and becoming the most used hashtag in the history of Twitter.

But this afternoon, the UN representative for the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Ufuk Gokcen, was expressing another view with respect to free speech.

The OIC is comprised of the 57 Muslim-majority nations and the Palestinian Authority. They are the largest bloc at the UN, and when they meet on the head-of-state level, they literally speak for the Muslim world.

So it is noteworthy that after the Charlie Hebdo attack, Gokcen is now calling for more implementation of the OIC-sponsored UN Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18 and the follow-up Rabat Plan of Action that would criminalize the very type of speech that Charlie Hebdo engaged in:

The timing of Gokcen’s call couldn’t be more perfect.

Today, University of Tennessee law professor Robert Blitt (a colleague of our own Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds) had an oped published in USA Today calling out the OIC for its retrograde views on free speech and how they fuel Islamic extremism:

The OIC, whose member states range from moderate U.S. allies such as Jordan to adversaries such as Iran, describes itself as the world’s largest international body after the United Nations. For more than a decade, “the collective voice of the Muslim world” has spread the belief thatany insult directed against the Muslim faith or its prophet demands absolute suppression. Quashing “defamation of Islam” is enshrined as a chief objective in the organization’s charter.

With countless internal resolutions, relentless lobbying of the international community and block voting on resolutions advocating a prohibition on defamation of religion at the U.N., the OIC continuously pushes to silence criticism of Islam.

Translated into practice inside Islamic nations and increasingly elsewhere, this toxic vision breeds contempt for freedom of religion and expression, justifies the killing of Muslims and non-Muslims alike, and casts a pall of self-censorship over academia and the arts.

By building the expectation that dissent or insult merits suppression, groups such as the OIC and the Arab League have emboldened extremists to take protection of Islam to the next level. With the most authoritative Muslim voices prepared to denounce violence but not to combat the idea that Islam should be immune from criticism, a meaningful response to counteract the resulting violence continues to be glaringly absent.

An OIC statement released after a 2011 Charlie Hebdo issue “guest-edited” by the prophet Mohammed typifies this troubling position: “Publication of the insulting cartoon … was an outrageous act of incitement and hatred and abuse of freedom of expression. … The publishers and editors of the Charlie Hebdo magazine must assume full responsibility for their … incitement of religious intolerance.”

As Professor Blitt notes in his oped, the OIC has been the international driving force behind the passage of Resolution 16/18, which was co-sponsored by Pakistan and the United States and passed in December 2011.
When passed, Resolution 16/18 was billed by the Obama administration as an improvement over previous “defamation of religion” resolutions. But the effort immediately came under firefrom religious liberties and free speech experts:

In the view of veteran international religious liberty analyst and advocate Elizabeth Kendal resolution 16/18, “far from being a breakthrough for free speech … is actually more dangerous than” the religious defamation resolutions.

“Indeed, the strategic shift from defamation to incitement actually advances the OIC’s primary goal: the criminalization of criticism of Islam,” she wrote.

The OIC’s push to criminalize “defamation of Islam” goes back to the OIC’s 10 Year Plan of Action adopted in 2005. Under the section “Countering Islamophobia” (VII), the plan says:

3. Endeavor to have the United Nations adopt an international resolution to counter Islamophobia, and call upon all States to enact laws to counter it, including deterrent punishments.

In their published [url=http://www.oic-oci.org/baku2006/english/Implementation of 10-year POA.pdf]implementation plan[/url] for their 10 Year Plan of Action, they are more clear that combating “defamation of religion” is not what they were after, but rather criminalizing “Islamophobia”:

Which is effectively what they’ve accomplished with the generous assistance of the Obama administration. Just two months before the passage of Resolution 16/18, senior Justice Department officials were meeting with U.S. Islamic groups discussing that very thing.

In fact, in my annual “National Security 'Not Top 10' of 2011? (no. 7) here at PJ Media, I noted the active cooperation of Hillary Clinton and the State Department in working with the OIC as part of their “Istanbul Process” to that end.

And in November 2012, when I reported here that U.S. Embassy in Jeddah Consul General Anne Casper was going to be addressing the OIC’s symposium on “defamation of Islam,” theOIC quickly scrubbed any reference to her appearance.

My colleague Stephen Coughlin has posted a video lecture outlining how the OIC’s efforts with respect to Resolution 16/18 are really rooted in Islamic law’s codes prohibiting blasphemy:

It’s hardly surprising that even after the Charlie Hebdo attack the OIC is not content to abandon their decade-long effort to criminalize “Islamophobia.” But, much as Professor Blitt has warned in his oped today, by doing so they are pushing the global Islamic community further away from the rest of the world.

ISIS Calls for Poisoning and Running Down Westerners
By Danielle Avel
Cross-posted from FrontPage Magazine

In a new video, ISIS threatens to murder Westerners through a wide range of new means, including poisoning of food and drink and hit-and-run attacks. This marks an increase in ambitious threats as ISIS (also known as Islamic State, ISIL, and Daesh) calls on Muslims to wage “jihad in the path of Allah” using easily accessible weapons.
The seven-minute video, entitled, What Are You Waiting For, opens with a group of Francophone ISIS fighters denouncing the West and throwing their French passports into campfire. French is the spoken language in the video, which also contains Arabic and English subtitles. One jihadi known as Abu Osama Al-Faranci, states: “This is a message from your French brothers who have made Hijra, to the Muslims who are still living in the land of Kufr.” In other words, it is an appeal by ISIS fighters who have emigrated to lands controlled by the Islamic State to Muslims living in the land of the infidelity.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgV6W7ZuL4M

Though the fighters in the video mostly speak to Muslims living in France, they also have a broader audience in mind; for instance, Abu Maryam al-Franci addresses “those Muslims in France and elsewhere.”
The jihadis featured in the video implore Muslims to make “Hijra” and emigrate to lands controlled by the Islamic State. But if Muslims do not emigrate, Abu Maryam (holding a machine gun and a machete) reminds them, “Indeed you have been ordered to fight the Kafir [unbeliever/non-Muslim] wherever you find him” and encourages Muslims in the West to attack civilians in their home countries.

Abu Salman al-Faranci introduces new methods to entice potential terrorists living in the West to commit murder in France, telling them to “terrorize them and do not allow them to sleep due to fear and horror.” Abu Salman continues, “There are weapons and cars available and targets ready to be hit… Kill them [infidels] and spit in their faces and run over them with your cars.” He goes on: “Even poison is available, so poison the water and food of at least one of the enemies of Allah.” Abu Maryam hopes that infidels “will even fear travelling to the market.”

ISIS has proven itself successful at recruiting thousands of fighters from Western countries to join its ranks. Should this resonance continue and jihadis living in the West heed the new ISIS call, it would have dire consequences for non-jihadi Muslims; any driver, waiter, or grocery clerk could be perceived as a terrorist in waiting. For all of us, ISIS’ latest message hopes to turn a stroll down the street into a walk of terror and to turn our food and drinks into recipes for murder.

Alabama Constitutional Victory Caps Off Successful 2014 Legislative Effort

By Brigitte Gabriel


Dear Elaine,

On Tuesday, November 4, 2014, the people of the United States went to the polls and made their voices heard in elections across America.

But seemingly hidden away in one state was a special kind of election.

The people of Alabama took the extraordinary step of making American Laws for American Courts part of their state’s constitution.

The American Laws for American Courts amendment in Alabama passed the vote of the people with a decisive 72% of the electorate approving it!

The victory was the culmination of a 4 year battle led by State Senator Gerald Allen, recipient of ACT for America’s National Security Eagle Award at our National Conference in Washington DC on September 11. In order to get on to the statewide ballot, American Laws for American Courts first had to pass through both chambers of the Alabama legislature. Thanks to the leadership of Senator Allen, it did so overwhelmingly with bipartisan support.

Of course, it couldn’t have been possible without the support of ACT for America’s thousands of members in the state of Alabama, who voiced their support when American Laws for American Courts worked its way through the legislative process and then led their fellow citizens in voting the legislation into their state constitution.

ACT for America is committed to educating elected officials and working with them nationwide to make sure they make decisions to protect our states and our nation. Can I count on you to help me in our effort to educate as many officials as possible across the country? Please click here to give $25, $50,$100 or more.

The Alabama success was the bookend of a series of legislative successes made possible by the support of ACT for America members across the nation that included:

• Anti-Female Genital Mutilation legislation authored by Senator Judy Burges in Arizona.

• State Level Counterterrorism Legislation—Andy’s Law—spearheaded by Representative Peggy Mast in Kansas.

• Overwhelming passage through the Oklahoma House and Senate of the Oklahoma Antiterrorism Act authored by Representative Dan Fisher.

• Legislation signed into law in Louisiana to ensure non-discriminatory practices by taxpayer supported charter schools, sponsored by Representative Valarie Hodges.

• Legislation similar to American Laws for American Courts to protect Floridians from foreign laws and foreign legal doctrines, authored by Senator Alan Hays.

In fact, 35 national security bills have been signed into law by nearly 2 dozen state Governors over the past 6 years!

The common denominator with each of these wins?
 ACT for America’s investment to skillfully deliver rock solid messaging to legislative sponsors and….to hundreds of thousands of local activists in our grassroots network.

With a Facebook post reach that exceeds 3 million readers on a regular basis, ACThas over 285,000 members and 875 local chapters, easily making us the largest national security grassroots movement in America.

Your investment in ACT for America has made all of this possible.

But, as you know, there’s so much yet that has to be done. ISIS rampages throughout the Middle East.
 Muslim Brotherhood organizations like CAIR and ISNA constantly push to undermine our national security and impose sharia law on America.

Please stand with us and make the most generous tax deductible gift of $25, $50, $100 or more.

ACT for America is playing a key role in building the firewalls to keep America safe and protect us from sliding into what Europe is going through now. Together, we are making a big difference, for our country and the future of our children and grandchildren.

Thank you for everything you’ve done, and for what you’ll do today. We are only as strong as our supporters. Please also remember us in your Will.


Always devoted,

Remembering Our Veterans



Dear Elaine, 

Today, on the 11th of November, we celebrate and honor the dead and the living, the young men and women who in every war since this country began, have given testimony to their loyalty to their country and their own great courage. 

We are all free today because for nearly 240 years, whenever freedom and liberty have been threatened, gallant men and women have answered the call from our nation. From all the branches of the military they risked and sometimes gave their lives for America. 

The rest of us owe more than we can ever repay to the veterans of all wars that our country has fought. 

We commemorate veterans on this one day, and then American life goes on. It is appropriate that we recall on this sacred day in our calendar the contribution and the sacrifice which so many men and women--and their families--have made in order to permit the rest of us to enjoy freedom. 

In difficult times, our veterans kept faith with America. They kept us free. On this historic day, let us resolve anew to keep faith with them. 

One of the first and the greatest men to serve the American flag was George Washington, and he left behind an eloquent warning: "To be prepared for war," George Washington said, "is one of the most effectual means of preserving peace." 

Unfortunately, more than once in our history we have forgotten that warning. Each time our fighting men and women have paid a very, very heavy toll. 

In a world tormented by tension and the possibilities of conflict, we now commemorate an historic day of peace. In an age that threatens the survival of freedom, we join together to honor those who made our freedom possible. 

On this Veterans Day, we pay special and appropriate tribute to the men and women who put their lives on the line for their country -- those who served in the armed services of the United States. We salute them for their part in the preservation of freedom and honor them for their courage and devotion to Country. 

All Americans should pause today in tribute to the priceless contribution of all veterans and, in particular, those who gave their lives so America might be free. 

Let us make sure, on this solemn day, the debt we owe to so many is properly honored. Let this Veterans Day strengthen our resolve to always walk the extra mile for freedom, but always walk it strong and unafraid--for without a mighty America no peace can long survive.

VICTORY: These Are The 7 States That Have Banned Islamic Sharia Law
Sharia law has become a hot button issue in America ever since reports broke of the Muslim Brotherhood creating a political party to push for states to adopt Islamic law into the U.S. legal code.

This course of action has led many states, who are concerned about the negative impact Islamic law would have on women and children, to create legislation banning Sharia law from state courts.
Click here to get a FREE subscription to the Conservative Tribune.
https://my.leadpages.net/leadbox/140249e73f72a2%3A11df09cc8b46dc/5700305828184064/
Seven states have voted to adopt anti-Sharia law legislation, or at least attempt to, since this issue has come to forefront. North Carolina and Florida are two of the recent additions to the list, with many others soon to follow.

In Oklahoma, legislation to ban Sharia law was struck down by the court for “discriminating among religions without justification,” leaving the state vulnerable to the dangers posed by Islamic law.
North Carolina took measures to help avoid the problem of “religious discrimination” in order to ensure the bill passed.
Via Deseret News:
[…] the law in Oklahoma was struck down in court as unconstitutional, according to the Progressive Pulse, because it discriminated among religions without justification.
North Carolina lawmakers tried to avoid that problem by not mentioning Sharia in the legislation but instead banning enforcement of all foreign laws.
Those in favor of banning Sharia law believe that passing legislation is critical for protecting the Constitution from laws that are not compatible with the current legal system.
Supporters hailed the bill as an important safeguard that protects the American legal system from foreign laws that are incompatible with the U.S. Constitution, RNS reported, while critics argued the Constitution already overrides foreign laws.
Progressives, of course, are attempting to flip these arguments around to make supporters of this type of law intolerant of other’s religious beliefs, which is strange given the fact that liberals often attempt to use the same measures to silence those who hold to traditional Judeo-Christian values.
“(The legislation is) primarily designed to stir up anti-Islamic prejudice by creating fears that Islamic Sharia law is somehow going to take over the American legal system,” Carl Ernst, a religious studies professor at the University of North Carolina, told the Daily Tarheel.
The BizPac Review reported that supporters of legislation blocking enforcement of Islamic law in state courts aren’t targeting religion.
“No one has a problem with Muslims or anyone else living peaceably in America,” the Rev. Mark Creech said in an article published on the Christian Action League website. “But on U.S. soil, we must all embrace the freedoms and responsibilities assigned us via the Constitution, and not demand enforcement of rules and regulations left behind in other cultures.”
The states that have successfully banned Sharia law are taking the necessary steps to preserve the U.S. Constitution from the corruption of foreign legal codes. The successful passage of these bills is a huge victory for liberty loving people in America.
Sharia law is incredibly oppressive and dangerous, calling for extremely harsh punishments for crime and making spouse abuse legally permissible, which is why it absolutely needs to be banned. More states must address this issue before the push to adopt Islamic law gains support and momentum.
Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you agree that more states need to start banning Sharia law and protecting our freedoms.

‘There is no life without jihad!’: Australian supporter of Islamic State shares yet another sickening photo of children dressed for combat and brandishing rifles 

Another shocking photo has emerged on social media of two young boys, with rifles, showing their support for Islamic State
Melbourne jihadist, Mounir Raad, re-tweeted the picture which said 'there is no life without jihad'
Raad also posted a strange tweet about eating a pot of noodles

PUBLISHED: 15:21, 2 November 2014 | UPDATED: 16:03, 2 November 2014
Another shocking photo has emerged on social media that have been encouraged by a Melbourne jihadist, who has clearly shown his support of Islamic State's recruitment of young children.
Mounir Raad re-tweeted a disturbing picture of two young boys, covered head to toe with only their eyes showing, dressed for combat, holding automatic rifles. 
The caption of the tweet, which appeared on the twitter account of another extremist says 'There is no life without jihad' (Daulatul islam Baqiyyah!)

Mounir Raad who has associated himself with the Islamic State has claimed he is in Aleppo, Syria.
He is believed to have travelled to the country alongside teenager Adam Daham who killed five people in a suicide bombing.
Monash University Global Terrorism Research Centre director Professor Greg Barton told the Herald Sun the tweet, was almost seen as a 'badge of honour'.

'In jihadi culture, in a wide range of groups, there is a strong sense of encouraging kids to identify with a military culture as a way forward,' he said. 
Raad's twitter account has also been filled with a variety of comments giving insight into life under the IS group, which strangely include eating a pot of noodles.
'Mmmmmmm noodles! I feel like a chef,' Raad tweeted.
'We say alhamdulilah for the blessings of Allah s.w.t in some other parts of shaam (Syria) they're eating cats n dogs,' he said.
Raad also tweeted a picture of the noodles, indicating what he was eating was obviously a luxury compared with what other fighters had to eat.


He also tweeted another pro Islamic State comment which appears to show his allegiance to the extremist group.
'May Allah shower patience upon the mujahideen and keep there feet firm against there enemies and give them victory over the kuffar,' it read. 
'The whole game plan for the Islamic State is finding foreign fighters but so many of them are idiots, it is a double-edged sword,' Professor Barton told the Herald Sun.
Calling them soft and immature he said most 'turn up with a head full of ideas and not much to offer in terms of fighting.' 
The photo of the two young boys comes just a day after another sickening photo emerged on social media showing a toddler kicking the severed head of a dead soldier in Syria.
It's believed the toddler's father is an avid Islamic State supporter and is seen wearing a camouflage military style baseball cap on his head.

Dear Elaine,

Steve Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism has for years been at the forefront of alerting America to the threat from Jihad. Their latest work is an absolute must-read. In an ongoing investigation, IPT’s investigators have exposed a troubling alliance between Qatar, a foreign country with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, ISIS and other Jihadists, and an American left-of-center think tank…


Qatar's Insidious Influence on
the Brookings Institution

A Four Part Investigative Series: Brookings Sells Soul to Qatar's Terror Agenda

by Steven Emerson, John Rossomando and Dave Yonkman
IPT News
October 28, 2014

Part 1 of a 4-part series.

The Brookings Institution bills itself as "the most influential, most quoted and most trusted think tank in the world," but should it be?

Brookings' long-term relationship with the Qatari government – a notorious supporter of terror in the Middle East – casts a dark cloud over such a lofty claim to credibility.

A September New York Times exposé revealed Qatar's status as the single largest foreign donor to the Brookings Institution. Qatar gave Brookings $14.8 million in 2013, $100,000 in 2012 and $2.9 million in 2011. In 2002, Qatar started subsidizing the Brookings outreach program to the Muslim World which has continues today. Between 2002 and 2010, Brookings never disclosed the annual amount of funds provided by the Government of Qatar.

Sources of funding should not automatically discredit an organization, but critical facts and claims about Brookings should be examined in light of them, starting with a harsh indictment by a former scholar.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism has reviewed the proceedings of 12 annual conferences co-sponsored by Brookings and the government of Qatar comprising more than 125 speeches, interviews, lectures and symposia; a dozen Brookings-based programs that were linked to the Qatari financed outreach to the Muslim world; and analyzed 27 papers sponsored and issued by the Brookings Institution and scholars based in Washington and at the Brookings Doha Center since 2002. Our review, which will be detailed in a four-part series beginning with this story, finds an organization that routinely hosts Islamists who justify terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians and American troops, who advocate blasphemy laws which would criminalize criticism of Islam, and which never scrutinizes or criticizes the government of Qatar, its largest benefactor.

Speaking Truth to Power:
Debra Burlingame Tells It Like It Is
9/11 family member and true American hero Debra Burlingame, who was an honoree and speaker at ACT for America’s national conference in September, continues to speak her mind on the threat from Jihad and the wrongheaded policies currently plaguing our nation. The story below and the linked video to her 27-minute interview are absolutely riveting…
9/11 Family Member: Our Weak President Puts Us
All At Risk
http://dailycaller.com/2014/10/19/911-family-member-and-former-liberal-our-weak-president-puts-us-all-at-risk


Imagine if your family member is suddenly killed by a terrorist wishing to strike fear in the heart of America.

On the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, The Daily Caller interviewed Debra Burlingame, the sister of Capt. Charles F. “Chic” Burlingame III, who was murdered by terrorists while piloting American Airlines Flight 77, the hijacked plane that crashed into the Pentagon.
As a former TV producer and liberal Democrat, Debra says her “whole world exploded” that day. Following the shock of the event, she transformed her life by learning how to make sense of the barbarity of our adversary and what makes them hate. As the co-founder of 9/11 Families for a Safe and Secure America, she has dedicated her life to meaningful activism and the education of others.
In this 27 minute video interview, Debra speaks of the scene in New York City as described to her by a firefighter. He told her, “Imagine that the Twin Towers are two big blenders and somebody turned them on. People lying everywhere. There were body parts from river to river and on the ledges of Brooklyn. It was a massacre of unbelievable proportions.”
The New York Times has a riveting site of “Portraits of Grief” for the victims and the loved ones left behind from the individuals personally affected by 9/11.
Our enemy, she says with more clarity than our last two presidents, is a “political ideology masquerading as a religion. It is an ideology that says Allah controls every aspect of your life.”
They seek global expansion and a global caliphate aimed at defeating the West, she says. Our adversary deliberately deceives people by claiming to be a religion of peace, she claims.
When President Obama claims the Islamic State is not Islamic, Burlingame strongly disagrees. “Just because they are violent, doesn’t mean that they are not a religion.”
Noting that too few discuss Benghazi as an attack on the anniversary of her brother’s killing, Burlingame says we still don’t know what Ambassador Chris Stevens and the Americans were doing there. When asked about Benghazi, she can’t help but recall hearing President Obama at the Pentagon on September 11, 2012, the exact scene of her brother’s death, when he tried to comfort the families and others gathered by saying Osama bin Ladin was dead and the world is a safer place.
“What a huge embarrassment,” Burlingame said.
Among other citizen-led efforts, those who follow Burlingame’s website successfully stopped a George Soros funded multi-million dollar museum at Ground Zero to tell a one-sided story of America pleasing to its ideological adversaries.
Debra says it is fear and cowardice that prevents the mainstream media from covering stories on this battle. Her heroes include Zuhdi Jasser, Ayann Hirsi Ali, and Mark Levin who, she says, speaks clearly and truthfully for 3 hours a day on talk radio.

[size=16]Dear Elaine,

Here is the latest excellent analysis from national security and terrorism expert Patrick Poole. The Obama administration’s failing strategies and tactics to battle ISIS are putting America and the entire world in peril…


5 Key Implications if Baghdad Falls to ISIS

By Patrick Poole

Reports that ISIS has surrounded Baghdad and is quickly closing in on the Baghdad International Airport (armed with MANPADS, no less) are troubling. Baghdad itself has been rocked by a series of VBIED attacks in the past 24 hours by ISIS, indicating that the battle for Baghdad has begun.

The possible fall of Baghdad could be the most significant development in the War on Terror since 9/11. And yet many among the D.C. foreign policy “smart set” were not long ago mocking such a scenario.

So what happens if such a situation comes to pass? Here are five key implications (by no means limited to these) if Baghdad falls to ISIS:

[/size]
1)  ISIS will not be claiming to the be the Islamic State, they will BE the Islamic State

[size=16]Symbolism doesn’t matter much to your average post-modern Westerner, but it still does in the Islamic world, and the capture of Baghdad will hold enormous value. For 500 years Baghdad was the seat of the Abbasid caliphate, and its fall to ISIS would allow the terrorist group to reclaim that mantle. Such an event will electrify the Middle East and beyond, with many Muslims holding firmly to the belief that the abolition of the Ottoman caliphate in 1924 by Ataturk was one of the key contributing factors in the decline of the Muslim world over the past century. No amount of State Department hashtags or tweets, or pronouncements by Sheikh Barack Obama and Imam John Kerry that there is nothing Islamic about the Islamic State, will be able to negate any claims by ISIS to be the revived caliphate.

[/size]
2)  The Great Reconciliation between jihadist groups will begin

[size=16]Much of the Obama administration’s anti-ISIS efforts have been trying to leverage other “vetted moderate” groups in Syria against ISIS, with some “smart set” thinkers even advocating engaging “moderate Al-Qaeda” to that end. We are already seeing jihadist groups gravitating towards ISIS, such as the announcement this week by Pakistani Taliban leaders pledging their allegiance to the Islamic State. Other groups of younger jihadis are breaking away from Al-Qaeda franchises in North Africa and defecting to ISIS. Despite bitter rivalries between ISIS and other jihadist groups in Syria, namely Al-Qaeda’s official Syrian affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, these other groups will be hard-pressed to deny ISIS’ caliphate claims if they do take Baghdad. In that part of the world, nothing succeeds like success. If Baghdad falls, jihadist groups, some of whom have been openly hostile or remained neutral, will quickly align behind ISIS. And the horrid sound coming out of Washington, D.C., will be of foreign policy paradigms imploding.

[/size]
3)  What of U.S. personnel in Iraq?

[size=16]The US Embassy in Baghdad is the largest embassy on the planet. And afterObama sent 350 more U.S. military personnel to guard the U.S. Embassy last month, there are now more than 1,100 US service members in Baghdad protecting the embassy and the airport. That doesn’t include embassy personnel, American aid workers, and reporters also in Baghdad. ISIS doesn’t have to capture the airport to prevent flights from taking off there (remember Hamas rockets from Gaza prompting the temporary closure of Israel’s Ben Gurion Airport this past summer). If flights can’t get out of Baghdad, how will the State Department and Pentagon evacuate U.S. personnel? An image like the last helicopter out of Saigon would be of considerable propaganda value to ISIS and other jihadist groups. Former CNN reporter Peter Arnett, who witnessed the fall of Saigon in April 1975,raised this possibility back in June. It’s not like the U.S. has prestige to spare internationally, and the fall of Baghdad will mark the beginning of the end of American influence in the Middle East, much like the case in Southest Asia in 1975.

[/size]
4)  If ISIS captures Baghdad, it will be with weapons provided by the U.S. to the Iraqi army and “vetted moderate” Syrian rebel groups

[size=16]Since their push back into Iraq this summer, ISIS has regularly paraded captured weapons and vehicles that have been provided by the U.S. to the Iraqi army, which rapidly collapsed in the face of the ISIS advance. ISIS has subsequently used these U.S.-provided weapons to repel attacks by Iraqi forces. A report published last month by the UK-based Conflict Armament Research documented the use of U.S.-provided Humvees, armored personnel carriers, and firearms by ISIS. In addition, ISIS has at least 52 U.S.-made M198 howitzers with GPS aiming systems that have a 20 mile range that will undoubtedly be used in their assault on Baghdad. Yesterday, Charles Lister of the Brookings Institute tweeted out recent images of ISIS fighters equipped with M79 Osa anti-tank weapons that had been provided by Saudi Arabia to the “vetted moderate” Free Syrian Army. The potential propaganda value of ISIS capturing Baghdad with U.S. weapons will be enormous.

5)  The fall of Baghdad will herald an unparalleled sectarian war in the Middle East and widescale regional instability

[size=16]The fighting in Syria and Iraq has been part of the regional sectarian competition of Sunni Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states against Shia Iran and its allies in Iraq, the Assad regime in Syria and Hezbollah. ISIS and Sunni Syrian rebel groups have been proxies in this fight. If Baghdad falls to ISIS, it will be all-hands-on-deck across the entire Middle East, with a sectarian war not seen since the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s and sectarian/ethnic cleansing not seen since the Balkan wars. We are already seeing Shiite militias killing Sunnis indiscriminately in Iraq and widespread ethnic and religious cleansing by ISIS in Northern Syria and Iraq. Meanwhile, our NATO ally Turkey is now bombing the same Kurds who are fighting ISIS. Because of these sectarian attacks millions of refugees have already flooded to Syria’s neighboring states, destablizing countries like Lebanon and Jordan. The ISIS push in Anbar province in Iraq has caused 180,000 more to flee,according to the UN. The potential humanitarian disaster from the dislocation of millions in the region could be without parallel.

[/size]



[size=16]If, in fact, Baghdad falls to ISIS and the Sunni-Shia sectarian war in Syria and Iraq metastasizes across the Middle East and North Africa, the U.S. will likely find itself an ancillary player. War-weary Americans have no appetite for boots on the ground (fueled in no small measure by the Obama administration’s stoking anti-Iraq war sentiments as part of their political strategy).

And yet one remarkable feature I personally witnessed last month while in Washington, D.C., briefing members of Congress on the proposal to fund more training and weapons for Syrian rebels, is the absence of any acknowledgement by the political and media elite that we lost the Iraq war. The fact is that we left, and ISIS stayed. Our options are increasingly limited in Iraq and the region, and most of those options are horrible options. We don’t even have lesser-of-two-evils options because of our reckless bipartisan foreign policy. The U.S. will also face a dilemma: at the very same time this administration has been sidling up to Iran and trying to strike a deal over its nuclear weapons program, we very well may be faced with calls from our longtime allies in the region, almost all Sunni, for assistance. And then we have Turkey, which, as a NATO partner, we have treaty obligations to honor.

And faced with a nuclear Iran amidst a growing sectarian war, many Sunni countries will start their own crash nuclear programs in response, leading to the regional proliferation of nuclear weapons. No sane person would contend that a nuclear arms race in the Middle East would be a benefit to our own national security (though undoubtedly there will be some D.C. foreign policy “experts” who will dismiss its importance).

The coming days and weeks in the fight for Baghdad are fraught with enormous implications for the U.S. And yet our ability to influence those events is rapidly waning.

The U.S. State Department: Out of Touch with
America, Out of Touch with Reality

Dear Elaine,

The U.S. State Department once again demonstrates that it fails to grasp the true nature of the threat from Islamic jihad by endorsing a Canadian publication produced by Islamist organizations—even after the Canadian Mounted Police rejected the very same manual.

State Department Endorses Canadian Islamist Manual that Describes Jihad as 'Noble'

By Andrew C. McCarthy

At the Washington Free Beacon, Adam Kredo reports that the State Department has issued a tweet endorsing a manual that promotes sharia and admonishes investigators not to use terms like “jihad,” which it describes as “a noble concept” in Islam.

The manual, United Against Terrorism, is said by its sponsors – the Islamic Social Services Association (ISSA) and the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) – to combat the radicalization of young Muslims. Yet, after being consulted during the manual’s writing, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police rejected the final product due to its “adversarial tone.”

That’s putting it mildly. Upon reading the book, Toronto Star columnist Anthony Furey observes that it frowns on “liberal values,” forbidding such things as the intermingling of the sexes in civil society and the marriage of a Muslim woman to a non-Muslim, while promoting the treatment of adultery and premarital sex as crimes for which “punishments are harsh.”

The manual admonishes that “Terrorism is not jihad. Jihad is a noble concept in Islam.” It further discourages Muslims from cooperating with law enforcement officials, even if the police are seeking information about Islamic radicals – the very “extremists” the manual ostensibly sets itself against. It also derides investigative measures designed to gather intelligence against terrorists.

Yet, the U.S. State Department lauded the manual yesterday, tweeting: “Canada: handbook to help parents understand extremists, combat recruitment [with a link to the manual.]”

As Mr. Kredo notes, the State Department’s approbation struck some Twitter users as curious. It should not have. The State Department, throughout the tenures of Secretaries Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, has been second only to the White House itself in championing the Muslim Brotherhood, whose promotion of sharia and project to forbid notice of the Islamic doctrinal roots of Islamic terrorism are amply reflected in the manual.

The airbrushing of jihad is also familiar. It is the same spin I discussed here in 2010 when then-White House counterterrorism czar (and now-CIA director) John Brennan claimed that we must not “describe our enemy as ‘jihadists’” because “jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenet of Islam” that merely means “to purify oneself or one’s community.”

In point of fact, according to the authoritative sharia manual Reliance of the Traveller, which has been endorsed by scholars at al-Azhar University in Cairo (the seat of Sunni scholarship since the tenth century) and by the International Institute of Islamic Thought (the Muslim Brotherhood’s think-tank), “Jihad means to war against non-Muslims.” As Answering Islam’s Yoel Natan has recounted, jihad is referred to in 164 verses of the Koran, almost exclusively in terms of combat.

Moreover, if – even as jihadists are rampaging – you want to indulge the Brennan/Obama administration fantasy that jihad has evolved, Brennan’s anodyne rendering of the concept is hopelessly flawed. I explained why in the 2010 column:

Jihad is, always and everywhere, the mission to implement, spread, or defend sharia, the Islamic legal code. It is not exclusively violent; an army doesn’t need to be violent if its enemies are willing to give ground. But jihad only “means to purify oneself or one’s community” in a very narrow sense. It is not the syrupy quest to become a better person but the command to become a better Muslim; it is not the smiley-face mission to “purify” one’s community of crime but the command to cleanse one’s community of non-Islamic influences.

The inextricable bond between jihad and sharia is also easily explained. In Muslim doctrine, sharia is deemed the necessary precondition for Islamicizing a society. Islam’s designs are hegemonic: Even in its less threatening iterations, it is taken as a given that believers must call all of humanity to the faith. What separates the true moderates from the faux moderates and the terrorists are the lengths to which one is willing to go in carrying out that injunction. That it is an injunction, however, is not open to debate.

Our political leaders can continue to trivialize jihad as if it were some benign struggle to brush after every meal. They can continue to ignore the core tenets that make sharia antithetical to a free, self-determining society. But they can’t do that and do the only job we need them to do: protect our lives and our liberties.


Again, if the State Department, the administration, and the Beltway political class are going to keep looking at Islamists –i.e., Islamic supremacists who promote sharia – as part of the counterterrorism solution rather than a big part of the anti-American, anti-Western liberalism problem, we are never going to get out of our own way.

Catholic Priest Sounds the Alarm on the
Islamic State

Dear Elaine,

The article below is an absolute MUST-READ. A Catholic priest has taken the time to thoroughly study Islamic doctrine and the history of Islam and has articulated his findings and opinions in very clear terms. You certainly don't have to be Catholic to appreciate the significance of this article. It serves as an excellent analysis for the origins of the Islamic State with which we are now at war.



It’s Time to Take the Islamic State Seriously

REV. JAMES V. SCHALL, S.J.

Islam has no central or definitive body or figure authorized to define what exactly it is. Opinions about its essence and scope vary widely according to the political or philosophic background of its own interpreters. The current effort to establish an Islamic State, with a designated Caliph, again to take up the mission assigned to Islam, brings to our attention the question: “What is Islam?”

The issue of “terror” is a further aspect of this same understanding. Many outside Islam seek to separate “terror” and “Islam” as if they were, in their usage, independent or even opposed ideas. This latter view is almost impossible seriously to maintain in the light of Islamic history and the text of the Qur’an itself.

John Kerry, however, insists that what we see is “terrorism” with nothing to do with Islam. The Obama administration seems to have a rule never to identify Islam with “terrorism,” no matter what the evidence or what representatives of the Islamic State themselves say. The vice-president speaks of “Hell” in connection with actions of the Islamic State. Diane Feinstein speaks of “evil” behind the current slaughters in Iraq and Syria. The pope mentions “stopping aggression.” The English hate-laws prevent frank and honest discussion of what actually goes on in Islamic countries or communities in the West. Not even Winston Churchill’s critical view of Islam is permitted to be read in public.

Ecumenism and liberalism both, in their differing ways, because of their commitment to tolerance and free speech, make it difficult to deal with what is happening in Islamic states. Islam is not friendly to relativism or to subtle distinctions.

Is terror intrinsic to Islam?

What I want to propose here is an opinion. An opinion is a position that sees the plausibility but not certainty of a given proposition. But I think this opinion is well-grounded and makes more sense both of historic and of present Islam than most of the other views that are prevalent. I do not conceive this reflection as definitive. Nor do I document it in any formal sense, though it can be. It is a view that, paradoxically, has, I think, more respect for Islam than most of its current critics or advocates.

This comment is an apologia, as it were, for the Islamic State at least in the sense that it accepts its sincerity and religious purpose. It understands how, in its own terms, the philosophic background that enhances its view does, in its own terms, justify its actions, including the violent ones.

The Islamic State and the broader jihadist movements throughout the world that agree with it are, I think, correct in their basic understanding of Islam. Plenty of evidence is found, both in the long history of early Muslim military expansion and in its theoretical interpretation of the Qur’an itself, to conclude that the Islamic State and its sympathizers have it basically right. The purpose of Islam, with the often violent means it can and does use to accomplish it, is to extend its rule, in the name of Allah, to all the world. The world cannot be at “peace” until it is all Muslim. The “terror” we see does not primarily arise from modern totalitarian theories, nationalism, or from anywhere else but what is considered, on objective evidence, to be a faithful reading of a mission assigned by Allah to the Islamic world, which has been itself largely procrastinating about fulfilling its assigned mission.

To look elsewhere for an explanation is simply not to see what the Islamic State and its friends are telling us about why they act as they do. The tendency among pragmatic Western thinkers, locked into their own narrow views, is to exclude any such motivation as an excuse of raw power. This view shows the intellectual shortcomings of Western leaders and the narrowness of much Western thought.

Jihadism, as it were, is a religious movement before it is anything else. Allah does grant violence a significant place. It is over the truth of this position, or better the inability to disprove it, that the real controversy lies. A recent essay in the American Thinker calculated that over the years of its expansion, from its beginning in the seventh and eighth centuries, some 250 million people have been killed in wars and persecutions caused by Islam. Nothing else in the history of the world, including the totalitarianisms of the last century, has been so lethal.

If Islam is a religion of peace, what sort of peace does it bring?

Other understandings of Islam’s record, though not its mission, within Islam may be also plausible, but no more so than this jihadist interpretation. It may be possible for some to read Islam as a religion of “peace.” But its “peace,” in its own terms, means the peace of Allah within its boundaries. With the rest of the outside world, it is at war in order to accomplish a religious purpose, namely, to have all submitted to Allah in the passive way that the Qur’an specifies.

Islam can at times be defeated or stopped, as at Tours or Vienna, but it will always rise again as it is now bent on so doing. To picture the jihadists and leaders of the Islamic State as mere “terrorists” or thugs is to use Western political terms to blind ourselves to the religious dynamism of this movement. No wonder our leaders cannot or will not understand it. This purpose, when successful, is a terrible thing. But we are not seeing a group of gangsters, as many are wont to maintain. The roots of Islam are theological, rather bad theology, but still coherent within its own orbit and presuppositions.

Briefly put, Islam, in its founding, is intended to be, literally, the world religion. Nothing else has any standing in comparison. It is to bring the whole world to worship Allah according to the canons of the Qur’an. It is a belief, based on a supposed revelation to Mohammed, of which there is little evidence. Sufficient justification to expand this religion, once founded, to all the world by use of arms is found in the Qur’an and in its interpreters to explain the violent means used, often successfully, to establish, pacify, and rule tribes, states, territories, and empires.

In Muslim doctrine, everyone born into the world is a Muslim. No one has any right or reason not to be. Hence, everyone who is not a Muslim is to be converted or eliminated. This is also true of the literary, monumental, and other signs of civilizations or states that are not Muslim. They are destroyed as not authorized by the Qur’an.

It is the religious responsibility of Islam to carry out its assigned mission of subduing the world to Allah. When we try to explain this religion in economic, political, psychological, or other terms, we simply fail to see what is going on. From the outside, it is almost impossible to see how this system coheres within itself. But, granted its premises and the philosophy of voluntarism used to explain and defend it, it becomes much clearer that we are in fact dealing with a religion that claims to be true in insisting that it is carrying out the will of Allah, not its own.

If we are going to deal with it, we have to do so on those terms, on the validity of such a claim. The trouble with this approach, of course, is that truth, logos, is not recognized in a voluntarist setting. If Allah transcends the distinction of good and evil, if he can will today its opposite tomorrow, as the omnipotence of Allah is understood to mean in Islam, then there can be no real discussion that is not simply a temporary pragmatic stand-off, a balance of interest and power.

Whenever incidents of violence are witnessed in the Islamic world, or in other parts of the world caused by Islamic agents, we hear complaints that almost no Muslim voices rise to condemn this violence. When the original 9/11 happened, there was not condemnation coming from within Islam, but widespread celebration. Islam was seen as winning. But all Muslim scholars know that they cannot, on the basis of the Qur’an, condemn the use of violence to expand their religion. There is simply too much evidence that this usage is permitted. To deny it would be to undermine the integrity of the Qur’an.

Obviously, the enemies of the Islamic State and its jihadist allies are not only the “Crusaders” or the West. Some of Islam’s bloodiest wars were its invasion of Hindu India, where the tension remains marked. There are also Muslim efforts into China. The Philippines has a major problem as does Russia. But Islam wars with itself. The Sunni/Shiite struggles are legendary. It is important to note that one of the first things on the Islamic State’s agenda, if it is successful in surviving, is to unite all of Islam in its creedal unity.

The unfinished business from Tours and Vienna

All existing Islamic states are some sort of compromise between the true Islamic mission and forces, usually military forces that limit this world-wide unification. Almost all standing Muslim governments recognize the danger to themselves of a successful Caliphate. They all have some form of jihadist presence within their boundaries that seek to control it in the name of their very survival. There are or were Christian and other minorities within these states that are, to a greater or lesser extent, tolerated. But they are all, as non-Muslims, treated as second-class citizens. The Islamic movement renews that purist side of Islam that insists in eradicating or expelling non-Muslim presences in Muslim lands.

The Archbishop of Mosul, on seeing his people exiled and killed, forced to choose between conversion and death, empathized that his buildings were destroyed, the archives and all record of the long Christian presence in that area destroyed. He warned that this form of treatment is what the nations of the West could expect sooner or later. There are now significant Muslim enclaves in every part of America and Europe to be of great concern as centers of future uprisings within each city. There are now thousands of mosques in Europe and America, financed largely by oil money, that are parts of a closed enclave that excludes local law and enforces Muslim law.

Yet, we can ask: is this Islamic State anything more than a pipe-dream? No Islamic state has any serious possibility of defeating modern armies. But, ironically, they no longer think that modern armies will be necessary. They are convinced that widespread use of terrorism and other means of civil disorder can be successful. No one really has the will or the means to control the destructive forces that the Islamic State already has in place.

The Islamic State strategists think it is quite possible to take another step in the expansion of Islam, to take up again the assault on Europe left off at Tours and Vienna. Muslim armies have always been known for cruelty and craftiness. Men often shrank in fear before its threat, as they are intended to do. A Muslim theoretician once remarked that their aim was to make the streets of Western cities look like those battlefields we see in the cities of the Middle East. Again with the suicide bomber and believers in their use, for which they are said to be “martyrs,” this may be possible.

Finally, the case of the Islamic State and of the jihadists is not just a threat arising out of Islam’s mission to conquer the world for Allah. It is also a moral case, that the life of the West is atheist and decadent. It does not deserve its prosperity and position. The mission of mankind is the submission to Allah in all things. Once this submission is in place, the sphere of war will be over. No more beheading or car-bombings will be necessary or tolerated. No dissent within Islam will be possible or permitted. All will be at peace under the law of Islam. This is the religious purpose of the Islamic State. It is folly to think of it in any other terms.

But with great opposition both from the West and from within Islamic states to this vision, is there any possibility of its success? Pat Buchanan thought that a group of Seals one of these days would eliminate the new Caliph. Existing Muslin government officials know that their days are numbered if the Islamic State succeeds. But, at the same time, this vision does seem to be the real impetus of the Islamic peoples.

It is easy to write this movement off as fanatical and ruthless, which it is. To the outside world, it sounds horrific, but I suspect not to those who believe its truth and see the current revival of Islam with relief. The second or third class ranking of Islam in the modern world is over. But to the degree that we misjudge what is motivating the renewal of Islam, we will never understand why it exists as it does.

ACT for America
Former Member of
Oklahoma Beheading Suspect's
Mosque Speaks Out
Dear Elaine,
The 9-minute video below is absolutely compelling. It contains chilling details about activities at the Oklahoma City mosque which beheading suspect Jah’Keem Yisrael attended. In the video, an undercover operative reveals a hidden Jihadist culture in the mosque during his two years there. The video also shows that the Muslim Brotherhood’s Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) has intervened on behalf of the mosque in stonewalling media inquiries.


We urge you to watch this video and share it with your friends, family and colleagues.

ACT! FOR AMERICA DEFEATS CAIR AND
GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS IN COURT

[size=16]Dear Elaine,

In February an ACT! For America chapter in Knoxville, Tennessee, was wrongfully denied the use of public facilities for a countersharia event due to the improper actions of CAIR and local school district bureaucrats. Our ACT! Chapter pursued litigation aggressively and this week won a settlement in its suit against the school district. Below are the details from Freedom X, the fine legal team who successfully litigated the case.

This should serve as a warning to government officials everywhere not to take legal advice from, or ally with, CAIR, an organization that openly promotes sharia and was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest successful terrorism financing prosecution in US history, the US v the Holy Land Foundation.

Lawsuit forces Tennessee school district to allow after-school
speech critical of Sharia

[size=16]–KNOXVILLE – After canceling a town hall meeting at the request of Muslim activists, a Tennessee school district and two school officials have settled a lawsuit over the public’s right to voice concerns about the growing acceptance of Islamic law, known as Sharia law, spreading through American communities. The settlement was finalized Wednesday evening when the district approved a policy barring school officials from selectively determining which subjects can be discussed by members of the public using school facilities.

In February, the Knoxville chapter of ACT! for America, an organization opposed to Sharia, planned an after-hours town hall meeting at a local area high school.

John Peach, president of the Knoxville chapter of ACT! for America, and Bill French sued the school district in U.S. District Court on August 4, 2014, for violating their First Amendment right of free speech and their Fourteenth Amendment rights of equal protection and due process. The county agreed to settle the lawsuit [Peach vs. Knox County Schools] just 21 days after it was filed. In addition to revising its facility use policy, the county will pay attorney’s fees and costs.

The new facility use policy states in part that “[a]pproval for use of school buildings and property will not be withheld based upon the content of the message or viewpoint of the applicant.”

“This is a victory for free speech,” said Bill Becker, president of Freedom X, a non-profit legal organization fighting discrimination against conservatives and Christians. “Sharia is incompatible with our constitutional and legal protections. That was the message Knox County school officials tried to censor. It is unfortunate we have to educate the educators about our freedoms, but we are thankful that Knox county attorneys recognized litigation would have been futile for the district.”

Knox County Schools superintendent James P. McIntyre, Jr., agreed to cancellation of ACT’s event after receiving letters from Ibrahim Hooper, communications director for the Council for American-Islamic Relations (“CAIR”) and AbdulRaman Murphy, a Muslim youth chaplain at the University of Tennessee. The activists falsely labeled ACT! a “hate group” and falsely characterized French as a bigot. They speculated the town hall meeting would encourage violence at the school and would disrupt the school environment.

After receiving the letters, Farragut High School’s principal at the time, Michael F. Reynolds, contacted McIntyre fearing that allowing the town hall meeting to take place would convert the school into “a public forum for harassment and bullying practices that contradict the open-minded, academic discussion we seek to teach and foster.”

In 1969, the U.S. Supreme Court held in Tinker v. Des Moines Sch. Dist. that “in our system, undifferentiated fear or apprehension of disturbance is not enough to overcome the right to freedom of expression. Any departure from absolute regimentation may cause trouble. Any variation from the majority's opinion may inspire fear. Any word spoken, in class, in the lunchroom, or on the campus, that deviates from the views of another person may start an argument or cause a disturbance. But our Constitution says we must take this risk and our history says that it is this sort of hazardous freedom -- this kind of openness -- that is the basis of our national strength and of the independence and vigor of Americans who grow up and live in this relatively permissive, often disputatious, society.”

Dear Elaine,

For years now, the false narrative from the Obama administration has been that Al Qaeda is “on the run” or “decimated.” Therefore, when it was discovered that Al Qaeda was plotting from Syria and Iraq to carry out a terrorist attack in the United States, Team Obama decided to make up a new name for the Al Qaeda cell responsible. This shameless maneuver amounts to national security malpractice…

SEPTEMBER 27, 2014 4:00 AM
The Khorosan Group Does Not Exist

It’s a fictitious name the Obama administration invented to deceive us.

By Andrew C. McCarthy

We’re being had. Again.

For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name.

Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual worldview, which holds that empowering Islamic supremacists is the path to security and stability. Yet even as war intensifies in Iraq and Syria — even as jihadists continue advancing, continue killing and capturing hapless opposition forces on the ground despite Obama’s futile air raids — the president won’t let go of the charade.

Hence, Obama gives us the Khorosan Group.

The who?

There is a reason that no one had heard of such a group until a nanosecond ago, when the “Khorosan Group” suddenly went from anonymity to the “imminent threat” that became the rationale for an emergency air war there was supposedly no time to ask Congress to authorize.

You haven’t heard of the Khorosan Group because there isn’t one. It is a name the administration came up with, calculating that Khorosan — the –Iranian– Afghan border region — had sufficient connection to jihadist lore that no one would call the president on it.

The “Khorosan Group” is al-Qaeda. It is simply a faction within the global terror network’s Syrian franchise, “Jabhat al-Nusra.” Its leader, Mushin al-Fadhli (believed to have been killed in this week’s U.S.-led air strikes), was an intimate of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the emir of al-Qaeda who dispatched him to the jihad in Syria. Except that if you listen to administration officials long enough, you come away thinking that Zawahiri is not really al-Qaeda, either. Instead, he’s something the administration is at pains to call “core al-Qaeda.”

“Core al-Qaeda,” you are to understand, is different from “Jabhat al-Nusra,” which in turn is distinct from “al-Qaeda in Iraq” (formerly “al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia,” now the “Islamic State” al-Qaeda spin-off that is, itself, formerly “al-Qaeda in Iraq and al-Sham” or “al-Qaeda in Iraq and the Levant”). That al-Qaeda, don’t you know, is a different outfit from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula . . . which, of course, should never be mistaken for “al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb,” “Boko Haram,” “Ansar al-Sharia,” or the latest entry, “al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent.”

Coming soon, “al-Qaeda on Hollywood and Vine.” In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if, come 2015, Obama issued an executive order decreeing twelve new jihad jayvees stretching from al-Qaeda in January through al-Qaeda in December.

Except you’ll hear only about the jayvees, not the jihad. You see, there is a purpose behind this dizzying proliferation of names assigned to what, in reality, is a global network with multiple tentacles and occasional internecine rivalries.

As these columns have long contended, Obama has not quelled our enemies; he has miniaturized them. The jihad and the sharia supremacism that fuels it form the glue that unites the parts into a whole — a worldwide, ideologically connected movement rooted in Islamic scripture that can project power on the scale of a nation-state and that seeks to conquer the West. The president does not want us to see the threat this way.

For a product of the radical Left like Obama, terrorism is a regrettable but understandable consequence of American arrogance. That it happens to involve Muslims is just the coincidental fallout of Western imperialism in the Middle East, not the doctrinal command of a belief system that perceives itself as engaged in an inter-civilizational conflict. For the Left, America has to be the culprit. Despite its inbred pathologies, which we had no role in cultivating, Islam must be the victim, not the cause. As you’ll hear from Obama’s Islamist allies, who often double as Democrat activists, the problem is “Islamophobia,” not Muslim terrorism.

This is a gross distortion of reality, so the Left has to do some very heavy lifting to pull it off. Since the Islamic-supremacist ideology that unites the jihadists won’t disappear, it has to be denied and purged. The “real” jihad becomes the “internal struggle to become a better person.” The scriptural and scholarly underpinnings of Islamic supremacism must be bleached out of the materials used to train our national-security agents, and the instructors who resist going along with the program must be ostracized. The global terror network must be atomized into discrete, disconnected cells moved to violence by parochial political or territorial disputes, with no overarching unity or hegemonic ambition. That way, they can be limned as a manageable law-enforcement problem fit for the courts to address, not a national-security challenge requiring the armed forces.

The president has been telling us for years that he handled al-Qaeda by killing bin Laden. He has been telling us for weeks that the Islamic State — an al-Qaeda renegade that will soon reconcile with the mother ship for the greater good of unity in the anti-American jihad — is a regional nuisance that posed no threat to the United States. In recent days, however, reality intruded on this fiction. Suddenly, tens of thousands of terrorists, armed to the teeth, were demolishing American-trained armies, beheading American journalists, and threatening American targets.

Obama is not the manner of man who can say, “I was wrong: It turns out that al-Qaeda is actually on the rise, its Islamic State faction is overwhelming the region, and American interests — perhaps even American territory — are profoundly threatened.” So instead . . . you got “the Khorosan Group.”

You also got a smiley-face story about five Arab states joining the United States in a coalition to confront the terrorists. Finally, the story goes, Sunni governments were acting decisively to take Islam back from the “un-Islamic” elements that falsely commit “violent extremism” under Islam’s banner.

Sounds uplifting … until you read the fine print. You’ve got to dig deep to find it. It begins, for example, 42 paragraphs into the Wall Street Journal’s report on the start of the bombing campaign. After the business about our glorious alliance with “moderate” allies like Saudi Arabia and Qatar who so despise terrorism, we learn:

Only the U.S. — not Arab allies — struck sites associated with the Khorasan group, officials said. Khorasan group members were in the final stages of preparations for an attack on U.S. and Western interests, a defense official said. Khorasan was planning an attack on international airliners, officials have said. . . . Rebels and activists contacted inside Syria said they had never heard of Khorasan and that the U.S. struck several bases and an ammunition warehouse belonging to the main al Qaeda-linked group fighting in Syria, Nusra Front. While U.S. officials have drawn a distinction between the two groups, they acknowledge their membership is intertwined and their goals are similar.

Oops. So it turns out that our moderate Islamist partners have no interest in fighting Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate. Yes, they reluctantly, and to a very limited extent, joined U.S. forces in the strikes against the Islamic State renegades. But that’s not because the Islamic State is jihadist while they are moderate. It is because the Islamic State has made mincemeat of Iraq’s forces, is a realistic threat to topple Assad, and has our partners fretting that they are next on the menu.

Meantime, though, the Saudis and Qatar want no trouble with the rest of al-Qaeda, particularly with al-Nusra. After all, al-Qaeda’s Syrian branch is tightly allied with the “moderate opposition” that these “moderate” Gulf states have been funding, arming, and training for the jihad against Assad.

Oh, and what about those other “moderates” Obama has spent his presidency courting, the Muslim Brotherhood? It turns out they are not only all for al-Qaeda, they even condemn what one of their top sharia jurists, Wagdy Ghoneim, has labeled “the Crusader war against the Islamic State.”

“The Crusaders in America, Europe, and elsewhere are our enemies,” Ghoneim tells Muslims. For good measure he adds, “We shall never forget the terrorism of criminal America, which threw the body of the martyred heroic mujahid, Bin Laden, into the sea.”

Obama has his story and he’s sticking to it. But the same can be said for our enemies.

[size=26]IMPORTANT LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT!

HOW ARE WE ABLE TO FUND “MODERATE” SYRIAN REBELS, BUT NOT OUR OWN MILITARY?

SIGN OUR OPEN LETTER TO LEADERS OF THE U.S. CONGRESS.[/size]

[size=16]Dear Elaine,

It doesn’t take much of an effort these days to clearly see that our nation faces multipledangerous threats – and those threats are growing with each passing moment.

For example:

[/size]

  • Iran continues its efforts to develop nuclear weapons.

  • China is building and modernizing its military.

  • And, the jihadist threat continues to metastasize, with Islamic State, the largest, wealthiest, most lethal jihadists terrorist group in history declaring war on the United States.

[size=16]Our military is even being called upon to help with the Ebola virus – as the Obama Administration recently announced the commitment of 3,000 U.S. troops toward what it is calling a “top national security priority.”

Yet, as America faces these ever-increasing threats, our government is slashing our military down to the bone and muscle. In fact the current plan is to reduce the U.S. Army to levels not seen since 1940!

On the flip side, one could even say entering the “Twilight Zone,” Congress passed legislation just last week providing an estimated $21 billion over three years to arm and train “moderate” Syrian rebels.

So, we have the means to fund Syrian rebels, but not our own U.S. military? Does that make sense to you?

This is extremely dangerous and should be unacceptable to the American public. As usual, it will take a grassroots-led public outcry to get the attention of our U.S. leadership. That’s where we come in.

As the largest national security grassroots organization in the nation, ACT! for America’s hundreds of thousands of members must remind the U.S. Congress of theirConstitutional obligation to protect and defend our nation. That means to assure that the U.S. has a strong, vibrant military, not a weak and emaciated one.

Can we count on you to add your voice to this important effort?

** IMPORTANT ACTION ITEM **

Please take a moment now to sign our Open Letter to the leadership of the U.S. Congress letting them hear from you about this important issue.

Our Director of Government Relations, Lisa Piraneo, will then personally deliver the letter to both House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.The more people who stand behind our message, the more powerful the impact when this letter is received.

Thank you for all that you do. Together we are making a difference!
