Shariah Law’s Deadly Mandates & Counter-Terrorism/Western Leadership’s Willful Blindness/Ignorance. Toxic Mix…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki


Posted on July 19, 2014

watch-isis 1

AS is said, ignorance is bliss, or so it would seem. But a distinction must be made between the willfully blind and the truly ignorant. The latter is easier to convince and educate but the former is a harder nut to crack. This is especially the case when dealing with Islamic inspired terror via Shariah law, or anything which rocks ones ideological sensibilities.

BE that as it may, despite the Johnny-come-lately’s, some truths are irrefutable, regardless of their uncomfortable nature. Deal with it. Incontrovertibly, Shariah law is deadly and its blow back on the west will rip western civilization from its roots. Yes, this IS a clash of civilizations. Impossible to negate.

BEFORE anything else, it is imperative to internalize the Islamic dictates of taqiyya and kitman. In effect, a “holy” warrior  (male or female) is commanded to deceive their Shariah mandated enemies, even to the point of adopting their ways and mores. How so?

WELL, many Islamic adherents, when coming to the west, go wild, but not in the way most believe. Agreed, non-religious Muslims, apostates, surely derive pleasure from western freedoms, like many others. However, there are many more who infiltrate and ingratiate themselves, through “passing” as western-like, only to pounce when the time is efficacious. This is also a manifestation of stealth jihad, a “kissing cousin” of taqiyya and kitman. Know thy Islamic enemy as well as they know you! Indeed, it is a life and death struggle. Islamists (and their helpmates) count on the open-mindedness of westerners, basic ignorance, and, most especially, PC infused guilt-ridden attitudes towards perpetually aggrieved Muslims. Other perceived “victim” groups too.  

INHERENTLY, terrorist attacks that involve bombings and shootings are just one component of the jihad, or holy war, that Islamists are actively waging against infidels all over the world. Another component of that jihad consists of nonviolent initiatives which can be classified as stealth (or “soft”) jihad, whose goal is the imposition of Islamic law,Sharia, over every region of the earth by non-confrontational means. Under the banners of “tolerance” and “civil rights,” stealth jihadists introduce, in piecemeal fashion, elements of Sharia into Western societies and then demand that non-Muslims make allowance for those elements. Moreover, stealth jihadists smear those who dare to discuss the negative aspects of Sharia (and Islam) as “racists” and “Islamophobes.”

BUT since time is of the essence, we are sorely in need of further education. Brass tacks. So there is no better place to start than with the female persuasion. Why? Males are generally seen as jihadis on the front lines, giving the women short shrift. Not so fast. 

WITHOUT a doubt, Islamic hotties are harder to pin down, and this goes for those who are publicly known, as well as those who slide under the western radar. Let’s start with a well know Islamic diva, as exhibit number one.

Exhibit Number One:

ENTER, Huma Abedin. Who hasn’t already read all the drivel, the smokescreens, about Huma Abedin? Yes, the inseparable aide of Hill. More than meets the eye. In a nutshell, she is the most dangerous Muslim Sisterhood operative in the west. Undoubtedly. Her footprints lead straight back to Benghazigate and so much more!

Exhibit Number Two:

NOW, onto the hidden jihadis and some of them are smokin’ hot. If your heart can stand it, take a peek at their latest weapons. Male readers, pay attention, don’t get distracted. 

The cash was discovered “further hidden inside her body.”

The cash was discovered “further hidden inside her body.”

As reported by The Rakyat Post (of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) on July 9, 2014, and by both The Arab Times (Kuwait edition) and The Evening Standard (of London, United Kingdom) on July 8, 2014, a British university student is facing charges of funding terrorist activities after being busted with a small fortune found stashed away in her knickers. Yet Nawal Msaad at least gives the outward appearance more of a high fashion model than that of an Islamist money mule.

The comely 27-year-old London Metropolitan University student was taken into custody at London’s Heathrow Airport earlier this year after €20,000 (£15,800/$27,273) was discovered by police. The tightly rolled wad of cash was initially wrapped in cellophane, then hid into a condom. Reportedly, other than the cellophane and prophylactic treatment, the 38 €500 notes, four €200 and the remaining two €100 euros were “further hidden inside her body.”

With the official title of The Central Criminal Court of England and Wales, Msaad appeared before England’s famed Old Bailey courtroom where prosecutors claimed Msaad is a “trusted courier” for her friend and co-defendant Amal El-Wahabi, also 27-years-old. Prosecutor Mark Dennis QC told the court that Msaad was attempting to board a flight to Istanbul, Turkey where she was to hand the cash off to El-Wahabi’s husband, Aine Davis, 30, which was alleged to fund the Syrian “jihadist cause.” Originally from the former-British colony of Gambia, Davis converted to Islam seven years ago and subsequently has taken the Muslim name of “Hamza.”

Already dubbed a “Jihottie” on various social media outlets, undoubtedly because of her striking good looks, it’s also being reported that Msaad’s legal problems stem from her inability to stop talking. While processing through one of Heathrow’s many security/customs checkpoints, the London born and bred accused terrorist enabler volunteered the information to police that she had 20,000 euros “around me” ostensibly to purchase gold for her mum.

It was then that the law enforcement officials took Msaad into a private room where she handed off to officers the banknotes that exited her body but remained in her underwear. Both Msaad and El-Wahabi have entered a plea of not guilty on all charges. The trial continues.

Exhibit Number Three:

INTO this deadly mix, one finds another frightening Shariah law underpinned fatwa – “jihad by sex”! Sick, twisted Islamic bastards. Their basis:Shariah law!

IS there any longer a doubt, as to why Shariah law must be eradicated from western shores?

Dave Gaubatz

It is vital to our national security that more Americans, specifically our counter-terrorism (CT) analysts begin to study Shariah law. A ‘Pure Muslim’ as labeled by Islamic scholars is one who adheres to Shariah law with his actions and mind. The more Shariah compliant a Muslim is, the more likely:

  1. They are Islamic terrorists AND/OR;
  2. They support Islamic terrorists AND/OR;
  3. They are getting closer to becoming a ‘Pure Muslim’ AND/OR;
  4. They are more likely to prepare for future terrorist attacks.

I will begin putting out educational information about Shariah law in future columns that will help one understand the Islamic mind.

Muslims are taught from an early age to be different/opposite from their enemies that Christians and Jews.

During the last few days most Americans, media, and counter-terrorism experts have been ridiculing the leader of ISIS/ISIL (Baghdadi) for wearing an expensive watch, when luxury goods are often prohibited in Islam. Ridiculing the expensive watch worn by an Islamic terrorist is a sure sign the person ridiculing does not understand Shariah law.

The watch on Baghdadi’s hand is an important aspect of understanding him and his followers. Instead of making jokes about his expensive watch, people should recognize that it is an honor for a Mujahadeen (Jihad Fighter) to wear the booty of their captors or the people they recently killed. It is unlikely Baghdadi bought this watch and as ISIS grows you (if you review closely) will begin to notice more and more of the regular Jihad fighters to begin wearing expensive watches and rings.

Another important aspect of Baghdadi’s watch is that he is wearing it on his right hand and the watch is silver. Shariah law prohibits gold for men and it demands a Muslim to do the opposite of the Jews and Christians. Most Jews and Christians wear a watch or ring on their left hand, therefore Muslims should wear on their right hand.

obl 3Look at the Osama bin Laden picture (left) and note the silver ring on his finger. It is worn on the right hand and the ring is silver per Shariah law.

An important matter counter-terrorist experts and U.S. law enforcement counter-terrorism specialists failed to notice was the beard changes during the months and years with Osama. One month it may be gray and soon after he has died his beard with a solid black henna.

ubl-beard 4News media and CT experts used to ridicule Bin Laden for looking silly because of the dark black beard (pictured right) he sometimes wore. Most CT experts do not know that the only time a Muslim can dye his beard black is when there is an upcoming Jihad fight, or that it is used by Islamic leaders to give a signal to their supporters that it is time to strike. This is all within Shariah.

There are times when a Muslim is allowed to not follow Shariah law. For instance Muslims will sometimes copy the Jews and Christians when they are deceiving their enemies. For example, Nihad Awad of CAIR National would tell his executives and staff to fit in with Westerners so they will look at them as ‘moderate’ Muslims.

It is imperative Americans study Shariah law on their own so they can begin to observe the Muslim people who are ‘Pure Muslim’. It does not mean that every compliant Muslim is a terrorist, but it is 100% guaranteed a Muslim who is 100% compliant with Shariah law is a supporter of Shariah and not the U.S. Constitution.

TRAGICALLY, ominously, a preponderance of counter-terrorism professionals have become useful idiots. Western leaders have made it known: an omerta is in place regarding Islam and this demands total silence re its underpinning – Sharia law!

EVEN intelligent high schoolers (and, they don’t even have to place in the top 5-10% of their classes) intuit that something is acutely amiss world over. On the one hand, their (western) leaders babble ad infinitum – not unlike idiot savants – about Islam being a “religion of peace”, all the while they witness (via the internet, social media and non-intimidated global sources) untold numbers of butchery in the name of Allah, Islam’s supreme “guide”. Credo quia absurdum!

SO if Islam is not at war with America – the west – then how come jihadists scream Allahu Akbar after every kill? Similarly, why are their scholars quoting countless Koranic passages, to back up Islam’s war against western infidels? Why aren’t western leaders listening to what Islamists are actually shouting from the rooftops, being that they plan to take over America and the entire west? 

Since Sura 5:32 is part of a series of verses, we must also read the next verse, Sura 5:33, which tells us what Muslims are permitted to do to corrupt mischief makers like the Jews:

   

MOST significantly, some counter-terrorism professionals are well paid whores and their shilling for Islam has reached critical mass. A clear and present danger is at the west’s door and America is at the epicenter. It is Islam’s ultimate prize. Whither America goes, Israel too, so does the rest of the west. It’s that simple.

Adina Kutnicki: Readers, one and all, relating as an American-Israeli, as someone who loves her birth country as well as her Jewish homeland, there is NO greater danger to western civilization than the Muslim Brotherhood and all its attendant jihadi offshoots. Indeed, the Iranian menace, through its Hitlerite regime, looms very large overhead, and they too are arming for nothing more than complete Islamic hegemony. Yes, once either, heaven forbid, prevails, they will merge forces (Sunni and Shia, after which they will fight each other for ultimate hegemony, as they have done for centuries) and aim straight for the west’s jugular. But whatever shakes out, the Brotherhood’s umbrella – spanning all over the globe – is Allah-bent on bringing down America. Rest assured, they are well positioned to do so, having many friends ensconced within President Obama’s White House. The situation is dire. If America falls, so too does the free world. Ditto, if Israel is, G-d forbid, destroyed. There is no room for equivocating. Like it or not, the two are twin pillars. They are, in effect, holding up western civilization.

And, even though some readers may be less than concerned about Jewish and Israeli interests, it can’t be stressed enough that Jews are simply one of their targets; a stepping stone to the Muslim Brotherhood’s ultimate obsession. Their anticipated conquest. Hands down, the biggest catch of all, is America.

Straddling the precipice…for once they are done slaughtering all their rival Muslims – be they “moderates” or what not – they are coming for Israel and America.

The new “caliphate” of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi—the Islamic State, formerly “ISIS”—recently made clear that it means to follow in the footsteps of the original caliphate of Abu Bakr al-Sadiq (632-634), specifically by directing its jihad against fellow Muslims, in Islamic parlance, the “hypocrites” and “apostates,” or in Western terminology, “moderates.”

This came out in the context of the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, with some Muslims asking the newly formed “caliphate” when it would launch a jihad on the Jewish state.

The Islamic State’s response? “Allah in the noble Koran does not command us to fight Israel or the Jews until we fight the apostates and hypocrites.”

Guaranteed.

“Failure by the international community to condemn these reprehensible actions would encourage these terrorists to continue their appalling actions.

Obama Specifically Wants Muslims for Military and Pentagon Positions


by Brandon Walker / on July 12, 2014

say-what

It seems that a new report has President Obama lining the cabinet with the Muslim Brotherhood, and he is specifically seeking Muslims for military and Pentagon positions.

We already know the Muslim Brotherhood is in President Obama’s Cabinet. Did you also know there was proof of President Obama specifically requesting Muslims for military and Pentagon positions with a connection to the Muslim Brotherhood?

It seems that a full blown military purge is in full swing. Now, we just found proof of thousands of deployed soldiers given pink slipshundreds of officers ordered to move being fired afterward, and 197 Officers purged last year. Yet the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a known terrorist organization, celebrates three Army Chaplains being promoted to Lieutenant Colonel?

Make no mistake, declassified FBI documents state INSA is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood! Yet they are celebrating that they have three Army Chaplains during the purge promoted to higher positions. Actually, you can find their strategic goal to take over the military and eventually the US here.

In fact, last year I covered a letter from one of the new Lieutenant Colonels saying Christians are the Anti-Christ and we own the military.

On top of this purge, President Obama has stepped up the hiring process for the military and the Pentagon for one specific religious group only… Muslims.

Never mind we should have headed the warning when he allowed a Muslim cleric to condemn fallen US soldiers and pardoned a US soldier that killed 5 Americans in Afghanistan as friendly fire.

It seems the Pentagon and President Obama have been tracking infiltration of American military by one religion only. The Administration admits they sought Muslims for positions in the military and the Pentagon.

“Our nation and our entire military family remain stronger because of the service and sacrifice of people of all faiths, including the thousands of patriotic Muslim Americans who have served and still serve in this long
period of war,” Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work said last week.

The U.S. military currently has 4,500 uniformed Muslims, the Pentagon said on July 3. It was not clear how the Pentagon identified the Muslims. The department has not given statistics on members of other religious faiths. -World Tribune

Why would they be tracking just one religion?

It does seem rather funny considering the military was told to bend to Sharia Law overseas while condemning personally handing out bibles on Military Bases. This is all being carried out in a manner people won’t care about in the name of “peace and tolerance” to a political ideology that doesn’t care about peace or tolerance… or America. We the People should, but we don’t.

Critics of the Muslim Brotherhood in the military and the Presidential Cabinet are well aware of the situation and the treason being committed. They are also fully aware of who President Obama is hiring to replace the ones he just fired.

Critics have accused the administration of promoting Islam as the preferential faith in the United States. Over the last year, a senior adviser to the Homeland Security Department, Mohamed Elibiary, issued a statement that said the U.S. Constitution was “Islamically compliant” and that a Muslim caliphate was “inevitable.”

“I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country,” Elibiary said in a Twitter post on June 30.

On July 3, Work attended the annual Pentagon ceremony of Iftar, or the evening dinner after a day-long fast that continues throughout the Muslim month of Ramadan. The Pentagon has been conducting the ceremony since 1998 in commemoration of Islam.

“Tonight is an opportunity for people of different faiths to come together in the spirit of respect and tolerance to share the richness of our beliefs and to enjoy the traditions of hospitality that are such an important part of the Muslim community,” Work said.

The Pentagon, which hired Saudi-sponsored groups to raise awareness, has reported the employment of 1,000 Muslims. Officials said they included civilians and contractors for the Defense Department. ~World Tribune

Did you catch that? Over 1000 individuals were given pink slips while the Pentagon announced the employment of over 1000 Muslim individuals. Why would they state that and how would they know if they followed their oath of office or the Constitution; that no religious test for employment shall be given?

Have we forgot about Nidal Hasan screaming “Allah Akbar” before opening fire on US army personnel? (I’m sorry, John McCain. Senator Lindsey Graham, who you pal around with, is right. It’s a war cry.)

Have we forgotten that President Obama in the name of “peace and tolerance” sent a Muslim cleric to condemn our soldiers and refused to apologize? Have we forgotten his grin from ear to ear when Bergdahl’s father blessed the White House for Allah?  Have we forgotten the 5 US soldiers shot in the back by their own personnel? Have we forgotten the second Ft. Hood shooter? Have we forgotten the Naval Yard shooter? Have we forgotten the Fatwa on condemning other Muslims to die, preventing them from engaging another Muslim they agree with?

For those screaming peace and tolerance, please explain this:

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” ~Qur’an 9:29

The People of the Book are Christians and Jews.

The British Imam calling to humiliate Christians and Jews is absolutely correct in his translation of Sahih Bukhari Book 25, Number 5389. 

There is also the process in their political ideology of abrogation. What that means is the radical and violent Medina verses take precedence over the peaceful Meca verses, and anyone caught not adhering to these outside of the first of three stages of Jihad are as guilty and to be killed with the infidel. Why do you think the rise in violence is about that is off the charts in Europe right now?

They are also allowed Taqiyya, or lying about what is in their religion, in order to subvert or protect themselves.

Brigitte Gabriel was absolutely astounding in her rebuttal of the not all Muslims excuse. Despite President Obama at an INSA meeting talking about the “Muslim’s have made great contributions to America,” even the left-leaning Soda Head trashed him, saying that the only contributions were destruction. When the liberals brag on giving their oath on Jefferson’s and Adam’s Qur’an’s, they need to read the forward.

“This book is a long conference of God, the angels, and Mahomet, which that false prophet very grossly invented; sometimes he introduceth God, who speaketh to him, and teacheth him his law, then an angel, among the prophets, and frequently maketh God to speak in the plural. … Thou wilt wonder that such absurdities have infected the best part of the world, and wilt avouch, that the knowledge of what is contained in this book, will render that law contemptible …” ~John Adams

You see, the Muslims did give one great “contribution” to the United States. They gave us the reference to the “shores of Tripoli” and the birth of the US Marine Corps.  President Adams said that if he sent the new Navy and the newly established Marine Corps to stop the blackmail of 25% of the young country’s GNP we would be fighting Muslims forever with our military.

“If we go into the strait (of Gibraltar) with this fleet and we attack the Musselmen head on, we will continue to be fighting forever.” (Presidential Record Archives)

President Jefferson sent them anyway.

So far, they have been correct. Every time the United States seems vulnerable, they have attacked the United States. We HAVE been fighting for over 200 years, and now you want them in charge of our military Mr. President?

And for all the “peaceful” Moderate Muslims that refuse to speak out on the waves of violence, PROVE ME WRONG!

[Editor’s Note: This does not necessarily entail the beliefs, thoughts, or theories of the local Act chapters or the National Act office…they are my beliefs, thoughts and/or theories. The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) has stated that they will put an Islamic Trojan Horse in the White House, to literally take over America in a non-Violent way (but we know that they are not dismissing a violent takeover, after all, the MB created terrorist groups like Hamas, the Islamic Association of Palestine, Al-Qaeda, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, Libyan Free Army, Syrian Free Army, just to name a few). President Barack Hussein Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood as well, and he is doing what they want him to do...inertly take over America by discriminating against non-Muslims. This is part of a plan...to discourage Americans from joining the military, or "re-upping" because there is a slight, very slight chance a non-Muslim will every get promoted, especially if they are an officer. Another part of this "take over America"plan is having an amnesty law go through...opening the borders...most folks see that it was to allow Mexicans in America to help destroy America financially (like Obama needed that much help), but in reality, there are tens of thousands of "Other than Mexicans" (OTM) being caught illegally entering the US. In fact, there is a Hezbollah sect outside of Texas that is very well crossing the border. Why? You might ask...because it is part of the plan...if our president doesn't make America an Islamic country while he is in office, the MB has set it up so that there will be hundreds of thousands of "extremist" Muslims ready to partake in a violent, jihadist attack against America. Do you think the 2nd Amendment problem is only because the demoncrats are afraid of guns? No, it is part of Shari'a that Obama is working for...a Muslim must make sure his enemy's are easily attacked and defeated...

Obama "fired", in essence, many military veterans, by cutting our military down to less than WWII, which the DoD has stated that we cannot effectively defend our country, has allowed homosexuals/transgenders to enter the military, which did effectively stop a lot of people from enlisting or re-upping, has worked with Iran and allowed them to work on nuclear weapons, just at a slower pace, took the military out of Iraq early, which allowed the MB to take over Iraq and make a caliphate, wants to take the troops out of Afghanistan early, wants to step in and help the MB Syrian Freedom Fighters take over Syria...

Made it so anyone in the military having tattoos on their neck or on their forearms could not get promoted, and now this...he is trying to make America very weak so the MB could run in and take the offensive and conquer America...you look at the evidence, and you decide...the time is very short for America...all because a lot of people was thinking "CHANGE" was for socialism...]

Abandoned Al Qaeda notebook found in Yemen features blueprint for creating Islamic state


The notebook is one relic of what a local Yemeni governor called a leadership camp for Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP). It features notes on weapons maintenance, topography, and elaborate diagrams for creating different ambushes.

REUTERS | Tuesday, July 8, 2014

yemen-campSTAFF/REUTERS A notebook belonging to an Al Qaeda fighter was found in southern Yemen in May

At first glance, the neat handwriting in blue ink could be from a school notebook.

Prise apart the pages – stuck together by sand and water – and it becomes clear that the book belonged to a militant from Al Qaeda. Discarded in shrubbery in the mountains of southern Yemen, it covers everything from the principles of a raid – “Surprise, firepower, a sacrificial spirit, quick performance” – to the ultimate goal: “Establishing an Islamic state that rules by Islamic Sharia law.”

The notebook, with the name Abu al-Dahdah al-Taazi in red calligraphy on the first page, is one relic of what a local Yemeni governor called a leadership camp for Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP). The camp, now abandoned, was visited by Reuters reporters in May. Locals in the nearby town of al-Mahfad described how they had tolerated hundreds of militants for three years. Then in April, after the militants posted online a video boasting of their presence, U.S. drones and the Yemeni army attacked encampments in the region. The villagers say it was then that they asked the fighters to leave.

The story of the camp shows how deeply embedded Al Qaeda fighters had become in the country’s remote, destitute south.

“We didn’t realize they were that many until the night they all left. That last night when they withdrew, we saw all these people, with families, more than 60, 70 cars,” said tribal leader Sheik Nasser al-Shamee in al-Mahfad.

The ‘emir’ of AQAP’s al-Mahfad cell was a local man called Ali bin Lakraa’, say Yemeni officials. He later died of wounds inflicted during the strikes, according to one official, who described the cell as AQAP’s most active, responsible for multiple operations against military and oil and gas facilities.

Last month the Yemeni army said 500 militants and 40 soldiers have been killed since it launched the offensive against the group in April.

Jane Marriott, Britain’s ambassador to Yemen, said the Yemeni government should be applauded for going after AQAP; but warned that the campaign had to be conducted “in the right way to be sustainable.”

So far, the raids like the one near al-Mahfad have broken up the camps. But fighters seem to have simply moved into other parts of the country.

In the days following the fighters’ departure from al-Mahfad, AQAP gunmen raided local banks in Hadramawt province, some 300 miles (480 km) away, suggesting they can travel almost unchecked. At least 27 people were killed in that attack, one of several assaults around the country, including one on the presidential palace, in the past two months.

“Using the army against Al Qaeda has very limited utility and Al Qaeda can adapt. It’s like going after a fly with a sledgehammer, it’s not effective,” said Abulghani al-Iryani, a prominent Yemeni political scientist. AQAP has taken second place to the Al Qaeda offshoot known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), he said, but will continue to be a serious international threat.

“Their significance is that they were given enough time to penetrate local communities and become well-established.”

The Saudi and Yemeni branches of Al Qaeda merged in early 2009 to form Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Funding itself partly through kidnappings – the group received almost $20 million in ransom payments between 2011 and 2013, Britain said last year – AQAP has masterminded at least two failed plots on U.S. targets. President Obama has said it is the group most actively plotting attacks against the U.S. Last week U.S. national security sources said AQAP was part of a plot to develop explosives that could avoid detection in airports.

The story of Al-Mahfad shows how the group is able to live alongside local communities. Home to around 10,000 people, the town is more than 400 miles from the capital, Sana’a and a grueling five-hour drive from the southern port city of Aden through stark mountains, acacia trees and volcanic rock.

A mass stone grave on the road to al-Mahfad stands as a memorial to a 2009 U.S. drone strike, which killed dozens and boosted tribal sympathy for Al Qaeda in the area. Black Al Qaeda flags are spray-painted on a few primitive buildings and rock formations along the road.

In 2011, after protests unseated veteran Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh, Al Qaeda fighters captured swathes of territory in southern Yemen and established Islamic emirates. The army mounted a campaign to push them out, but didn’t come near al-Mahfad.

Much of the country is beyond government control. Nearly half Yemen’s 25 million people face hunger. The country also suffers from water and fuel shortages, daily power cuts and endemic corruption.

In al-Mahfad, locals rely on goat herding and bee-keeping. Unemployed youth sit, AK-47s resting on their shoulders, under shady stalls, chewing qat, a popular mild stimulant in Yemen and Somalia.

“Because al-Mahfad is so far and there was a lack of state’s presence in providing services, some of the sons of the area were exploited by Al Qaeda who told them we can do this and that for you. The place was destitute and totally isolated,” said Jamal al-Aqel, the governor of Abyan province, which houses al-Mahfad.

Fighters, distinctive with long hair and beards, would come to the town to restock on essential goods and recruit boys. Townspeople said the fighters were mostly Saudi and Yemeni but that only Yemenis with family in al-Mahfad ventured into the town.

Tribal leader Shamee said the fighters did not cause any trouble and mostly kept to themselves.

“Al Qaeda has been very clever in how it’s made itself part of the fabric in parts of the country,” said British ambassador Marriott.

The camp sat a few kilometers up a mountain in the Wadi al-Khayyala enclave. On a recent visit, a sheet of paper with Al Qaeda’s black flag logo fluttered in the bushes. Scattered around were soy packets for a popular instant noodle brand, tuna cans, chocolate wrappers, and an empty tube of toothpaste. There were discarded clothes, medicine boxes, indigestion treatments, and syringes.

Also left behind were stores of Saudi-manufactured dates and Saudi riyals, testament to the strong ties between the Yemen branch of Al Qaeda and the country’s northern neighbor, said Aqel. AQAP’s mastermind bomb maker, Ibrahim al-Asiri, is a Saudi; his brother died in a failed suicide attack on now Saudi Interior Minister Mohammed bin Nayef in 2009.

Locals were unhappy about the foreign presence. It was one thing to have local fighters, “but for people to come from other areas and turn al-Mahfad into a launch pad for terrorist attacks is an unacceptable situation,” said Aqel.

Somalis, who are only a short boat ride away across the Gulf of Aden, even appeared on the coast road asking for “al-Mahfad,” he added.

“We found all kinds of (explosive) devices. We destroyed about 10 tonnes of explosives and more than 180 mines and 150 explosive devices.”

Aqel said the camps also had a complex irrigation system and air conditioned rooms.

In late March, the fighters sent out a video of a large Al Qaeda gathering, which showed hundreds of militants singing and celebrating unperturbed, apparently in the camp outside al-Mahfad. The video was “very provocative”, said Aqel.

By April U.S. drone strikes hit targets in both Abyan and the nearby province of Shabwa, another AQAP stronghold. The Yemeni army followed with its offensive. Skirmishes on the Aden-Mahfad route killed at least nine soldiers, Aqel said.

Locals panicked. Town elders told military officials that they would ask the fighters to leave to avoid a battle.

“We told them, ‘You’re trapped and we’re trapped with you. There’s an operation in Mahfad and an operation in Abyan and you’re in the middle and we civilians are stuck in the middle too and we can’t bear it anymore. We’re trapped from above and below,’” said Shamee.

Local Al Qaeda fighters were allowed to quit the group and return home. There was one condition: They must “present a commitment to the sheik” that they would no longer fight with Al Qaeda, said Aqel.

Many southerners in Yemen feel neglected by the government, but are also repelled by the extreme Al Qaeda ideology. Abdellatif al-Sayed, from Jaar, about 150 miles from the fighters’ camp, said he had initially supported AQAP when they seized control of his region in 2011 because “the state was oppressing us and there was unemployment. We didn’t know anything about them.”

But the group’s methods horrified him. “Their intentions were to fight the army in the name of Al Qaeda, not as a popular revolt,” said Sayed, who said he wore dark sunglasses to hide an eye injury suffered in an assassination attack by Al Qaeda.

“We never expected that we would one day slaughter a soldier or see a man hanged. Before being Muslims, we’re Arab and we have customs and traditions. They killed prisoners, they killed women. They had no mercy.”

It also identifies the three stages of guerrilla warfare needed to create an Islamic state – a similar blueprint to the one ISIL seems to be following in Iraq and Syria.

The first is the “exhaustion phase”, categorized by hit-and-run attacks, especially on supply routes. “The aim is to disperse the enemy, not kill its men,” say the notes. The enemy may come forward with “secret negotiations for some mujahideen,” before urging “No military truce… No negotiations.”

In the “equilibrium phase”, the mujahideen should focus on creating semi-official forces that can impose security and “launch political campaigns…to clarify the features of the struggle.”

The mujahideen should also “send diplomatic messages either through political language, or the language of blood,” to warn people whose governments support the “enemy” that they are a “legitimate target.”

“If negotiations are necessary then so be it, but only on the condition that we look for conditions for the enemy’s surrender because that will destroy their morale.

“It should be noted that the enemy will try to offer the mujahideen a chance to participate in power. This is completely and utterly rejected.”

The endgame is the “categorical phase” in which “all negotiations should stop and the enemy will be warned with necessity of surrendering.” Sharia courts would be set up to try all those “apostates of religion.”

On the notebook’s last pages, a few verses of poetry are repeated, evoking a paradise in which virgins are available to those seen by God as deserving: “Oh brother, why be sad … the price is heaven and the heavenly virgins. Oh brother, come here … the price is heaven and the heavenly virgins.”

The people of al-Mahfad are happy they avoided a battle. Aqel said he was working on bringing telephone lines back to the town. Yemeni soldiers have set up an army base at the foot of the mountain where the camp once stood.

But security precautions are casual. One recent afternoon, in 35 degree Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) heat, soldiers relaxed under makeshift tents, pink plastic bags on their laps from which they lifted a few leaves of qat.

Reporters in a private car were allowed to approach the first checkpoint. A soldier flagged down the vehicle and asked for the occupants’ identification, apparently worried that the car could be a militant suicide mission. He borrowed a reporter’s pen and wrote down names on his hand and then waved the reporters through.

New 9/11 records offer tantalizing puzzle pieces


Posted on Saturday, 07.05.14

An ongoing lawsuit has pried loose new records linked to a family of Sarasota Saudis who left home in a hurry just before 9/11.

11y0GE.Em.56

Just two weeks before the 9/11 hijackers slammed into the Pentagon and World Trade Center, members of a Saudi family abruptly vacated their luxury home near Sarasota, leaving a brand new car in the driveway, a refrigerator full of food, fruit on the counter — and an open safe in a master bedroom. The Miami Herald

By Dan Christensen and Anthony Summers

BrowardBulldog.org

It was Halloween night, 2001. The horrors of 9/11 were still fresh on the minds of Americans.

At a time when everyone was on edge, the sight of a man disposing documents in a dumpster behind a Bradenton storage facility aroused suspicion. Summoned to the scene, Manatee County sheriff’s deputies confronted the man, who had a Tunisian passport.

According to FBI records, authorities searched the dumpster and found “a self-printed manual on terrorism and Jihad, a map of the inside of an unnamed airport, a rudimentary last will and testament, a weight-to-fuel ratio calculation for a Cessna 172 aircraft, flight training information from the Flight Training Center in Venice [Fla.] and printed maps of Publix shopping centers in Tampa Bay.”

The Flight Training Center is where 9/11 hijack pilot Ziad Jarrah, who was at the controls of United Airlines Flight 93 when it crashed in Shanksville, Pa., took flying lessons.

This intriguing tale and at least one other are contained in a batch of partially redacted documents released this past week as part of ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation by the online news site BrowardBulldog.org. The suit, filed in 2012, seeks the FBI’s files from a once-secret investigation into a family of Sarasota Saudis who left the country abruptly about two weeks before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, leaving behind clothing, jewelry and cars.

The main figures in the family were Abdulaziz al-Hijji, his wife, Anoud, and her father, Esam Ghazzawi, an advisor to a Saudi prince.

The report of the Bradenton incident is in some way linked to the al-Hijjis’ saga, although precisely how is unclear. The link might be spelled out in one of the many redacted passages. Nor is it clear in the unredacted portions who the man was or whether he was detained. An FBI letter accompanying the documents says the redactions have to do with national security and other exclusions.

The documents — the fourth batch released in response to the BrowardBulldog lawsuit — were located via court-ordered text searches using the names of the al-Hijjis and Ghazzawi. U.S. District Judge William J. Zloch in Fort Lauderdale is currently reviewing more than 80,000 pages of 9/11 records.

“This release suggests that the FBI has covered up information that is vitally important to public safety,” said Miami attorney Thomas Julin, who represents BrowardBulldog.org. “It’s startling that after initially denying they had any documents they continue to find new documents as the weeks and months roll by. Each new batch suggests there are many, many more documents.”

“There needs to be a full-scale explanation of what’s going on here,” Julin said.

A second FBI document released last week, dated Feb. 2, 2012, is similarly tantalizing — and similarly murky.

On that day, according to the document, FBI offices in Tampa and Charlotte, N.C., received information from Washington stamped “secret” stating that a “person of interest” in the FBI’s massive 9/11 investigation had returned to the United States.

The person, whose name is redacted, was reported to be “traveling to Texas and LA for business/tourism.” The person apparently told authorities upon entering the country that he could be reached in Charlotte. He provided a telephone number “associated with furniture manufacturers in North Carolina,” the report states.

Details about that were blanked out. But the report also states, “Tampa is notified that a person of interest to Tampa regarding the PENTTBOMB investigation has a valid visa for re-entry into the U.S.” PENTTBOMB is the FBI’s code name for its 9/11 investigation.

Whether this person was ever detained, interviewed or allowed to go about his/her business is unclear in the unredacted passages.

In all, the FBI released 11 pages. They contain statements reiterating that the al-Hijjis had departed the United States in haste shortly before 9/11 and that “further investigation” had “revealed many connections” between them and persons associated with “attacks on 9/11/2001.”

Those statements flatly contradict the FBI’s public statements that agents found no connection between the al-Hijjis and the 9/11 plot.

Yet they dovetail with the account of a counterintelligence source who has said investigators in 2001 found evidence — phone records and photographs of license plates snapped at the entrance to the al-Hijjis’ Sarasota-area neighborhood — that showed Mohamed Atta, other hijackers and former Broward resident and current al-Qaeda fugitive Adnan Shukrijumah had visited the al-Hijji home.

None of that information, or even the fact that an investigation in Sarasota took place, was disclosed by the FBI to Congress’ Joint Inquiry into the attacks or to the 9/11 Commission, according to former Florida Sen. Bob Graham. Graham co-chaired the joint inquiry.

The documents are stamped secret. The portions that were not released are supposed to be kept under wraps until 2039.

The government has asserted the classification is necessary because the censored information pertains to foreign relations or foreign activities, including confidential sources.

“This could be about information considered embarrassing to Saudi Arabia,” said Julin. Fifteen of the 19 suicide hijackers were Saudi nationals.

The report on the man and the dumpster — although the encounter happened on Halloween 2011, the document is dated April 2002 — contains additional information, though the deletions make its full meaning difficult to discern.

It says the Tampa FBI office “has determined that [blank] is an antagonist of the United States of America. [Blank] resides in Jerusalem. [Blank] allegedly has held regular and recurring meetings at his residence to denounce and criticize the United States of America and its policies. [Blank] is allegedly an international businessman with great wealth.

“In November 2001, [blank] visited the United States for the first time. He traveled to Sarasota, Florida, opened a bank account and made initial queries into the purchase of property in south central Florida. [Blank] intends to establish a Muslim compound in Central Florida. [Blank] revealed that [blank] is fearful of [blank] and fears that [blank] intends to begin offensive operations against the United States if he is able to purchase property and establish a Muslim compound in Central Florida.”

Three follow-up lines are blanked out.

Bill designates Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist group


Congresswoman plans to introduce after stirring bipartisan furor

Published: 4 days ago

Morsi

Never one to be shy about confronting the threat of Islamic jihad in the face of fierce political opposition, Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., plans to introduce a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

Bachmann pointed out that Egypt, where the Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928, has designated the movement as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, and she urged the U.S. to do the same.

“The U.S. needs to defund, sanction, do everything we can to delegitimize the Muslim Brotherhood,” she said.

The Brotherhood, which rose to power in Egypt in the “Arab Spring” revolution of 2011, was formed after the demise of the Ottoman Turkish empire with the intent of restoring the Islamic caliphate and advancing Islamic rule worldwide. Its stated goal for the U.S. is “a kind of grand jihad” aimed at “eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within” so that “Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

In a State Department briefing in February, deputy spokeswoman Mari Harf affirmed the Obama administration’s stance toward the Muslim Brotherhood after the ouster of the Morsi government.

“The United States does not – has not designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization,” she affirmed. “We have been very clear in Egypt that we will work with all sides and all parties to help move an inclusive process forward. We’ve also repeatedly, both publicly and privately, called on the interim government to move forward in an inclusive manner.”

Islam and counter-terrorism analyst Walid Shoebat believes that even if Bachmann’s bill were to pass the House, it would never be brought to the Senate floor with Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., as majority leader.

That fact, Shoebat said, shows how far the U.S. is from actually confronting its enemies.

He said Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S. should be stripped of their tax-exempt status. Among them, he said, are the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the Muslim American Society and the Muslim Student Association.

[...]

Bachmann was one of five Republican Congress members who stirred bipartisan controversy in 2012 by raising concern about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the nation’s capital. Along with Republican Reps. Louie Gohmert, Trent Franks, Thomas Rooney and Lyn Westmoreland, she signed five letters to five separate inspectors general.

She and her colleagues pointed to Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin, as a possible Muslim Brotherhood influence on U.S. policy. The lawmakers asked the inspector generals at the departments of Homeland Security, Justice and State to investigate, prompting Democrats and Republicans to rush to Abedin’s defense.

However, as WND reported, Abedin worked for an organization founded by her family that is effectively at the forefront of a grand Saudi plan to mobilize U.S. Muslim minorities to transform America into a strict Wahhabi-style Islamic state, according to an Arabic-language manifesto issued by the Saudi monarchy. Abedin also was a member of the executive board of the Muslim Student Association, which was identified as a Muslim Brotherhood front group in a 1991 document introduced into evidence during the terror-financing trial of the Texas-based Holy Land Foundation trial.

‘Shame on you, Michele!’

Republican lawmakers who rebuked Bachmann and her colleagues in 2012 were Sens. John McCain, Scott Brown and Marco Rubio, and Reps. John Boehner, James Sensenbrenner, Mike Simpson, Richard Hanna and Mike Rogers.

Former Bachmann campaign chief Ed Rollins wrote a scathing letter to her.

“As a member of Congress, with a seat on the House Intelligence Committee, Mrs. Bachmann you know better,” Rollins said. “Shame on you, Michele! You should stand on the floor of the House and apologize to Huma Abedin and to Secretary Clinton and to the millions of hard working, loyal, Muslim Americans for your wild and unsubstantiated charges.”

Rollins said that as “a devoted Christian, you need to ask forgiveness for this grievous lack of judgment and reckless behavior.”

Shoebat commented, however, evidence that has since arisen backs Bachmann’s claims.

“Since Rollins penned those irresponsible words, Bachmann’s five letters have aged like a fine wine of accuracy and foresight,” he said. “Muslim Brotherhood infiltration has become far more obvious. Yet, people like Rollins, McCain, Rogers, Boehner, et al., remain silent on the matter.”

An Egyptian magazine reported last year that six American Muslim leaders who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who have significant influence on U.S. policy.

Egypt’s Rose El-Youssef magazine, in a Dec. 22 story, said the six men turned the White House “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

As WND reported, Gohmert has pressed for an investigation of the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence on the federal government, contending a probe is necessary because of the Obama administration’s “horrendous decisions” in backing the  “Arab Spring” revolutions in the Middle East.

Last year, CAIR urged the Obama administration to restore the Muslim Brotherhood-backed regime in Egypt that was ousted in a popular revolt.

CAIR wanted Obama to “use the leverage of taxpayer funds being sent to that nation’s military to push for a return to democracy,” which would mean putting President Mohamed Morsi back in office.

Under its 12 months of dictatorial rule, Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood government pushed through an Islamic-law constitution, defied the courts and consolidated power to ward off opposition, prompting another revolution after the one that brought down Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

CAIR touts itself as a Muslim civil rights group, but federal prosecutors in 2007 named CAIR an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to fund Hamas, and more than a dozen CAIR leaders have been charged or convicted of terrorism-related crimes.

FBI wiretap evidence from the Holy Land case showed CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad was at an October 1993 meeting of Hamas leaders and activists in Philadelphia. CAIR, according to the evidence, was born out of a need to give a “media twinkle” to the Muslim leaders’ agenda of supporting violent jihad abroad while slowly institutionalizing Islamic law in the U.S.

As WND reported in 2010, a federal judge later determined that the Justice Department provided “ample evidence” to designate CAIR as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, affirming the Muslim group has been involved in “a conspiracy to support Hamas.”

The David Horowitz Freedom Center’s Terror Awareness Project pointed to documents seized by the FBI confirming the goal of the Muslim Brotherhood has always been the establishment of a world global Islamic state.

Formed by a “Hitler-admiring Muslim named Hasan al-Bannain in Egypt in 1928,” the Muslim Brotherhood was “designed to function as the spear point of the Islamo-fascist movement and its crusade against the West, spawning terrorist groups such as al-Qaida and Hamas.

WND has reported that in criminalizing the Muslim Brotherhood and prosecuting key Muslim Brotherhood leaders, Egypt’s military government has sought to embarrass the Obama administration for the support it gave Morsi.

WND also reported evidence that Egyptian terrorists with ties to the Morsi government and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt were perpetrators in the terrorist Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. special mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and their other Americans.

All 294 U.S. diplomatic outposts on high alert over threats from Islamic State


July 7, 2014 By Robert Spencer

flag_split

“If America attacks Iraq every American embassy in the world will be exposed and attacked with car bombs.” “If the United States bomb Iraq, every American citizen is a legitimate target.” Jihad Watch posted these threats on June 27. The U.S. government appears to have caught up nine days later.

“ISIS threaten to plant bombs at ‘every American embassy,’” by Scott Campbell, Sunday Express, July 6, 2014 (thanks to Twostellas):IslamicStateISIS

All 294 US diplomatic outposts are on high alert after the terror threats were posted online by rebels.

One ISIS post said: “If America attacks Iraq every American embassy in the world will be exposed and attacked with car bombs.”

Another vowed: “If the United States bomb Iraq, every American citizen is a legitimate target.”

The terrorists said that companies in Arab countries employing US citizens would also be targeted, after threatening to “slaughter” US doctors around the world. The messages came amid a US government fightback on Twitter against ISIS militants who urged followers to tweet threats.

The @ansaar999 account, which appears to have links with the rebel group, tweeted its 23,400 followers, telling them to post anti-US messages in English.

The messages, sent to politicians and celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, contained images of dead US soldiers, the 9/11 attacks and masked ISIS fighters.

The US joined the war of words on the Think Again Turn Away account, which is used to respond to critics in the Middle East.
