ADL’s Interfaith Summer Camp Infiltrated by Supporters of Al Qaeda Terrorist


By Ilya Feoktistov and Charles Jacobs

How would you feel if you sent your son or daughter to an Anti-Defamation League summer camp only to find out that the camp’s youth coordinators are supporters of a convicted Al Qaeda terrorist?

Brothers Bilal and Ammaar Mirza have been involved with Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL’s) Camp Interfaith in beautiful Andover, New Hampshire since they were teenagers, first as campers and then as staffers. Yet at the very same time, they have also been active in a Boston area extremist Islamist movement that is viciously anti-American and tinged with anti-Semitism, a movement that has coalesced around the cause of a local jihadist celebrity, Tarek Mehanna.

192791_5_

Tarek Mehanna, a Sudbury native, is currently serving a 23 year sentence in Federal prison for conspiracy to provide material support to Al Qaeda, conspiracy to murder in a foreign country, and lying to the FBI about his attempts to join up with Al Qaeda in Yemen. Tarek Mehanna liked to refer to himself as “the media wing of Al Qaeda in Iraq” and told his friends that he felt Osama Bin Laden was like a father to him. He and his co-conspirators had visited the 9/11 Ground Zero site in NYC, where he snapped photos of himself grinning and holding up the index finger salute used by Islamic extremists.

192792_5_

In recorded conversations, he said he wished “Allah’s mercy on just the [World Trade Center] buildings, not the sinners that were in it.”

According to the FBI, Mehanna had planned an assault rifle massacre of shoppers in North Attleboro’s Emerald Square Mall. An FBI agent assigned to his case recounted in court filings how “Mehanna and his co-conspirators, who shared videos and took real pleasure in the deaths of American servicemen, seemed to delight in the most horrific atrocities.” The Feds intercepted online conversations in which Mehanna gleefully urges his friends to check out a terrorist video he found online where Al Qaeda fighters in Iraq rip open the ribcages of US soldiers, pour gasoline in their chest cavities and set them on fire. “[N]ice juicy BBQ,” Mehanna gloated to his friends. “Texas BBQ is the way to go. I want more BBQ sauce videos.”

Throughout the course of his trial, Americans for Peace and Tolerance (our organization) identified and filmed  ADL youth programs coordinators Bilal and Ammaar – as well as their father Farooq – taking active part in multiple rallies organized by the so-called “Free Tarek” movement. We have also extensively documented the vicious anti-American rhetoric from speaker after speaker at these gatherings, as well as hateful anti-Semitic online postings like “Close Guantanamo Bay, Reopen Auschwitz,” by members of the group.  Mehanna’s admirers also include people who do more than cheer him on: A prayer card in support of Mehanna was found in the apartment of the Boston Marathon bombers.

Here is Bilal Mirza at a rally outside Moakley courthouse during Tarek Mehanna’s bail hearing:

Here is his father, leaving the Moakley Courthouse with the entire Mehanna family after Tarek Mehanna’s first court date:

192794_5_

Here are Bilal and Ammaar at a rally on the Boston Common held in protest of Mehanna’s conviction just six months before they were dispatched by the ADL to work with Jewish and Muslim children:

They’re chanting “Free Tarek” with the rest of the extremist crowd, riled up by Mehanna’s family members and the leader of the Boston Marathon bombers’ mosque, who told the assembled Muslims that they’ll be the next victims of the wicked American government if they don’t do something about it.

But ADL youth program coordinator Bilal Mirza told the Boston Herald that, “he’s known Mehanna for years and looks up to him,” saying, “He’s always been a great mentor.” Here is what Bilal wrote about Mehanna while calling for his release:

“Tariq [sic] is a great, humble, and gentle person. His actions, mannerisms, as well as his overall demeanor exude the qualities of intrinsic humanity. He is not only a [sic] honest Muslim, but also and endearing human being. … He does not deserve the things that are happening to him.”

Inexplicably then, the ADL hired a man who considers someone who gloats over the vicious mutilation of American troops and the murder of 3,000 Americans on 9/11 “an endearing human being” who “exude[s] the qualities of intrinsic humanity.” And ADL hired him to work with and influence children entrusted to its care, If having his moral views doesn’t disqualify Bilal from becoming an ADL youth camp staffer, what would?

Bilal and Ammaar are not just random young men who happened to work summers at ADL’s camp: our research indicates that the entire Mirza family is as close to the ADL as it is to the Mehanna clan.

In fact, young Bilal and his father Farooq Mirza were prominently honored at the ADL’s 2013 Nation of Immigrants Seder. Farooq was given the honor of being a co-chair of the event together with such notables as former Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Newton Mayor Setti Warren.

192795_5_

Bilal Mirza was a member of the ADL Seder’s planning committee. ADL New England’s Executive Director Robert Trestan personally introduced Bilal at the podium and asked “those of you who came here with children, those of you who have kids at home” to consider sending them to the interfaith summer camp for some quality time with Bilal. After taking the podium, Bilal proceeded to quote a Quranic verse traditionally interpreted as rebuking Jews for deviating from divine truth.

Bilal seems to be advancing at ADL. In August 2013, he worked with the organization to expand the summer camp program into a year-long program called “ADL Interfaith Youth Leadership Coalition.” The launch was held at Babson College, where Bilal is the campus Muslim chaplain. Northeastern University had to dismiss its own Muslim chaplain, Abdullah Faaruuq, after our organization exposed his own support of Tarek Mehanna. But given the “Jewish stamp of approval” provided him by the ADL, it’s no surprise to see Bilal remain in his perch at Babson and rise to such positions of influence where he can spread his views to New England’s Muslim youth.

As highly regarded as they are by ADL, Bilal and Farooq Mirza also seem much esteemed by the notorious Saudi-funded and Al Qaeda terrorist-founded Islamic Society of Boston (ISB). Farooq Mirza was given a place of honor right next to former Boston Mayor Menino at the ISB’s Roxbury mosque grand opening in 2009.

192796_5_

Bilal Mirza seems close with the Imam of ISB Cambridge, where the Boston Marathon bombers prayed and, according to the FBI, posed for pictures with the mosque’s Al Qaeda “black flag of jihad.”

192797_5_

ADL New England’s Board Chair Jeff Robbins is rumored to be the replacement of ADL’s national head, Abe Foxman, when Foxman retires in late July. Before he became an ADL official, however, Robbins was so deeply concerned about the Islamic Society of Boston’s terrorist connections that he drafted a memorandum to the Federal Justice Department outlining “crimes that may have been committed by the ISB or by officers of the ISB.” In the memorandum, Robbins accused the ISB’s leaders of “Providing Material Support to Foreign Terrorist Organizations.” But now as an ADL official bound by Foxman’s interfaith policies, Robbins honors some of the ISB’s most prominent activists and allows them to live with and supervise Jewish children, whose parents trust the ADL to inculcate them with proper values, and to keep them safe.

So what actually goes on at ADL’s Camp Interfaith? This quote from a 2006 Boston Globe puff piece about the camp comes from a teenage Jewish girl: “Even if we’re discussing whether Hezbollah is a terrorist group,” she said, “afterward we can still be friends and go play soccer.”  Does ADL really want to teach American Jewish teens that they can be friends with Muslims here only if they betray the Jews of Israel?

Even more concerning: what are ADL’s radical Muslim staffers teaching New England’s young Muslims at this camp? Bilal Mirza is himself an anti-Israel ideologue. The year after he first started working at ADL’s Camp Interfaith, Bilal uploaded an album of pictures from his trip to Gaza to his Facebook profile. The album was titled: “If you support Israel, look at the destruction you support.”

192798_5_

These are not the kinds of things that ADL advertises when it sends out the fundraising letters that annually help it net close to $50 million of precious Jewish communal capital. When Bubbe sends that donation check believing ADL’s promises to fight the anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism her grandchildren face on campus, little does she know that ADL is using her hard-earned retirement savings to bring anti-Semites and Israel haters literally into its own tents, giving them career-boosting cover in the process.

Has ADL’s leadership become so arrogant and doctrinaire leftist that it refuses to do minimal checking of its Muslim interfaith partners? Or is it so incompetent that it can’t use Google to do the sort of simple vetting of job applicants that McDonald’s does routinely?

Until ADL breaks its ties with terrorist supporters like the Mirzas and does a thorough audit of its vetting process for interfaith partners, Jewish children who attend its interfaith camp will continue being exposed to interpersonal “peace-making” scenarios where they can hear from ADL staffers that Hizbullah may not really be a terrorist organization – no matter its expressed mission to murder all Jews.

They will continue being exposed to “youth coordinators” like Bilal Mirza, who have claimed that if Jewish kids support Israel, they support destroying Palestinian kids’ homes.

But even more concerning is that if ADL does not correct its faulty vetting policy, Muslim children in New England will be exposed to extremists like Bilal, who claim that an Al Qaeda terrorist is actually an honest Muslim who is simply a victim of the evil American government.

We were in fact first warned about the Mirzas by moderate Boston Muslims concerned about the radicals within their community. And they – the true moderates we should all be befriending – are deeply upset by how groups like the ADL simple-mindedly expose their children to Islamic extremists under the guise of interfaith dialogue. Does the ADL have no relations with the truly moderate, patriotic members of the Muslim community in New England?

Interfaith work is extremely important in these volatile times. It needs to be done well by competent professionals. Jewish and Muslim parents in New England should demand no less. ADL must conduct a thorough of how this happened, explain to the community what went wrong, dissociate itself entirely from the Mirza family and put its Interfaith Youth Leadership Coalition on hold until it can guarantee that Jewish and Muslim children are safe in its care.

Meanwhile, it is clear to us: ADL’s leaders have deserted their organization’s mission, its members, and its donors. It’s time for its donors to tell them “enough.”

ISIS killing innocent citizens just for fun


[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. This is graphic, but shows how Islamic State (IS, formerly known as ISIS) just wants to kill, even if its Muslims they are killing...and it's a peaceful religion...go figure...sounds like Pres. Obama's common core logic has been taught to them and their (including Obama's) new caliphate

Islamic State (IS) is demanding Iraqi Christians to convert to Islam, pay jizya tax (extortion in a lawful interpretation), or die…this is what is going to transpire here in America, and the other Western countries…soon…their caliph has told them to do it, upon following Mohammed’s actions in the path…]

Islamic State to Hamas: We Must Attack America Before Supporting Your Fight Against Israel


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...]

CALIPHATE GOES NUCLEAR: ISIS Seizes 88 Pounds of Uranium From Mosul University


Posted by Jim Hoft on Wednesday, July 9, 2014

The uranium could be used for “manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”

The uranium could be used for “manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”

The Iraqi ambassador told the United Nations this week that ISIS terrorists seized 88 pounds of uranium from Mosul University.
Reuters reported, via The News Commenter:

Insurgents in Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country’s north, Iraq told the United Nations in a letter appealing for help to “stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad.”

Nearly 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University, Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the July 8 letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

“Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Alhakim wrote, adding that such materials “can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction.”

“These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts,” said Alhakim.

The Iraqis also admitted this week that ISIS looted the Muthanna chemical weapons complex in June.

So now ISIS has nuclear material and chemical weapons material in their arsenal.
How comforting.

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.

yemen-camp2Khaled Abdullah/REUTERS Yemeni soldiers look at a car destroyed during a military operation against Al Qaeda militants.

“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.”

The abandoned notebook features notes on weapons maintenance, topography, and elaborate diagrams for creating different ambushes.

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.

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.

President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tour the Sultan Hassan Mosque in Cairo, Egypt, in 2009.

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.

Exposed: Names and Identities of Muslim Brotherhood Operatives in U.S.


by RAYMOND IBRAHIM November 1, 2013

Muslim Brotherhood Demonstrators Burn United States Flag, Amman, Jordan, September 1990El Watan, one of Egypt’s most widely circulated and read newspapers, published a report discussing the Muslim Brotherhood’s influence over the United States, especially in the context of inciting pro-Brotherhood policies against Egypt’s popular June 30 Revolution, which resulted in the ousting of Muhammad Morsi and the Brotherhood from power.

Titled (in translation), “With Names, Identities, and Roadmap…  El Watan Exposes Brotherhood Cells in America,” it’s written by investigative journalist Ahmed al-Tahiri, who begins the report by saying:

In the context of El Watan’s ongoing investigation concerning the Brotherhood’s cells and lobby inside America that support the regime of the ousted [Morsi], and which intensified their activities to attack and defame the June 30 Revolution, informed sources have disclosed to El Watan newspaper the names and cell entities of the Brotherhood and their roadmap of activities all throughout the United States of America.

The sources said that these organizations, which are spread throughout the States, agitated for and were supportive of the decisions taken by Muhammad Morsi’s project to “Brotherhoodize” and consolidate power [in Egypt] and gave a favorable opinion to the general American public that Morsi’s decisions were welcomed by the public [in Egypt]. Following the June 30 Revolution, these groups  launched a malicious war in order to incite the American administration to take hostile decisions against Egypt, with the aim of bringing back the Brotherhood to the power.

El Watan then goes on to name names, saying that the following activists and entities are Brotherhood operatives working within the United States (reproduced verbatim):

  • Union of Egyptian Imams in North America, represented by Sheikh Muhammad al-Bani
  • The Egyptian American Foundation for Development
  • Dr. Khalid Lamada, New York
  • Dr. Hassan al-Sayah, Virginia
  • The Egyptian Network in America, led by Dr. Muhammad Helmi
  • Dr. Akram al-Zand, Sa’ad Foundation
  • Muhammad al-Khashab, Head of ART channels in America
  • Sameh al-Henawi, member, Business Association of America
  • Dr. Hany Saqr, member, Egyptian Association in America
  • Dr. Khalid Hassan, Maryland
  • Dr. Muhammad Abdel Hakem, Seattle
  • Dr. Ahmed Ismat al-Bendari, President, Islamic Society of America
  • Walid Yusari, Chicago
  • Ahmed Shadid, New Jersey
  • Ahmed al-Hatab, Indiana
  • Dr. Muhammad Morjan, Boston
  • Ramadan Ridwan, Houston
  • Ahmed Fayez, Las Vegas
  • Dr. Amru Abbas, member, Egyptian Foundation in Michigan
  • Dr. Safi al-Din Hamed, Pennsylvania
  • Dr. Hamdy Radwan, North Carolina
  • Ahmed Shehata, Director, Egyptian American Organization for Democracy and Human Rights
  • Dr. Iman Shehata, New York
  • Dr. Muhammad Amru Attawiya, member, Organization of Islamic Relief in the United States
  • Dr. Khalid al-Sayes, member, Rebuilding of Egypt Foundation
  • Dr. Tariq Hussein, member, American Islamic Relations Council (CAIR)
  • Dr Hisham al-Gayar, member, Egyptian Foundation, Michigan
  • Amin Mahmoud, Maryland

 

As a most recent example, El Watan quotes from an American op-ed published on October 16 (just two days before the publication of the El Watan report itself).  Titled “Egypt: 100 days later” and written by Ahmed Shehata of the Egyptian American Organization for Democracy and Human Rights, the piece appeared in The Hill, the Capitol’s most widely circulated newspaper, published specifically for Congress.

 

The op-ed is certainly a prime example of pro-Muslim Brotherhood propaganda that actually tries to “shame” U.S. policymakers into returning the Brotherhood back to power in the name of “democracy.”

Key excerpts follow:

While the U.S. must consider its own interests in the region, it is baffling and disheartening to think the current administration would choose to discount the suffering that continues to occur on a daily basis as well as the complete violation of democratic principles which it espouses to the rest of the world….  As this past week marked 100 days since the coup and the lives of the Egyptian people continue to be sacrificed, the United States cannot be silent any longer for the sake of their own interests and convenience….  To that end, Egypt represents a golden opportunity for the U.S. to uphold democratic values by pushing for the reinstatement of the democratically elected government, despite their shortcomings. This would aid tremendously in showing the world that, above any one particular physical interest, stands the mantle of freedom and the rule of law.

Anyone familiar with the real happenings of Egypt knows that Shehata’s assertions are complete opposites of the truth: the military ousted the Brotherhood in response to the will of millions of Egyptians-the people, the demos, as in democracy-who took to the streets protesting against the totalitarian Morsi government.   Moreover, it is the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters who have been committing numerous human rights atrocities-including the slaughter and persecution of Christians, the torture and murder of many Egyptians (including before the revolution), and the destruction and torching of some 85 Christian churches.

Shehata seems to think that, if the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters terrorize, murder, destroy, persecute, and betray their nation-which is precisely why tens of millions of average Egyptians rose up against them (though you might not know that following Al Jazeera-led Western media that distorted the popularity of the revolution)-as long as they won “elections” (which from the start many authorities insisted they didn’t), then that is all that matters; and, if need be, the U.S. must war with Egypt’s military and people on behalf of the ousted terrorists-all in the name of “democracy” and “human rights,” as Shehata’s U.S.-based Brotherhood front is laughably called.

That such a shameless piece of Muslim Brotherhood propaganda can be published in the most influential and widely read Capitol Hill publication certainly goes a long way in validating El Watan’s claims that the Brotherhood has its tentacles all around the United States’ points of influence.

[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. Now, it has been shown through Walid Shoebat that Barack Hussein Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Barack Hussein Obama is, by means of his middle name, and the scar on the back of his head that goes from ear to ear, shows that he is of Shi'a doctrine (some, but not many Sunni, per Muslim capita, have the name Hussein, because it was from Ali Hussein, the first Shi'a martyr, and Ashura tradition is celebrated by both factions, however the Sunni celebrate the Muslim Moses' exodus from Egypt, and the "raft" that the Muslim Noah took during the flood, by fasting from sunset to sunset...whereas the Shi'a celebrate Ashura differently...they celebrate it for the remembrance of Ali Hussein being martyred by flogging themselves (males) across the back with chains and sharp objects that will cut their backs, as well as younger males usually get cut on the back of their heads, from ear to ear), so even though the MB is primarily Sunni, they can and do have Shi'ites in their fold.]

According to this Marine, we are already in Stage 3 of the coming Islamic Caliphate…not that most people in the West seem to care


What say you?

Blackfive (h/t Steve D)  No, we are not seeing the redrawing of lines in the Middle East.  We are seeing the erasing of lines in the Middle East.  There is only one line that matters to the Islamist and that is the line that separates Dar ul Islam (land of Islam) and Dar ul Harb (land of war).  Right now in Iraq and Syria, we are seeing the new Dar ul Islam bloom, in the heart of the original caliphate, and it will bloom quickly.

islamicholywarvivi-vi1 1

While Baghdad prepares a token defense, Iran prepares to insert military support to the embattled Shia government, the truth is the sheer brutality, and ruthless efficiency of ISIS will quickly overwhelm, as the Shia run for their lives and the Sunni will surrender and pledge allegiance to their new masters, and the new Caliphate.  Once Baghdad falls, the rest of the house of cards that is the middle east will fall in short order.  If the combat trained and experienced Iraqi military, with our weapons and modern training cannot stand to the fury that is the jihad, who do we honestly suppose would?

So who does that leave?  Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain or the Emirates?  None of them have the fortitude to stand up, the Royals will run and the Islamists will assume control.  That would leave 3  holdouts,  Egypt, Damascus and Israel.  Safe to assume, the Egyptian military will put up some token resistance, but the reality is, they are fully infiltrated by Islamist and the Muslim Brotherhood.  Gen al Sisi’s brief victory will be that indeed. (BNI disagrees with this assessment of Sisi) The growing jihad will cause Assad to flee with his Iranian peers, and Israel will very soon find itself surrounded as Dar ul Islam prepares to commit the final purge, pushing the Jews into the sea. (Except for the fact that Israel can and will use its nuclear option if push comes to shove)

We have seen this happen before.  We just failed to appreciate the history of islam.  The only difference between the 7th Century and the 21st Century is that warfighting capability and transportation are greatly improved.  While we may not understand what is happening, the key leaders in the muslim brotherhood, al Qaeda, Turkey and ISIS do and are driving the war as they have envisioned it.

Ayman al Zawahiri wrote to the Iraqi’s frequently before and during and I would suppose after the US invasion and campaign.  The theme was to hold on and hold out, that the US was a paper tiger and would cut and run.  He said the same to the Afghani’s but there is a difference.  Afghanistan is not Arab.

The attention placed on Iraq, even before 9/11 should have lit every analyst’s emergency button, but it did not, the letters lay untouched in the Library of Congress.  Only communications from bin Ladin and Zawahiri directed at the audiences in the West were translated by Raymond Ibrahim.  Critical to understanding the nature of the war was to understand the enemy, which we have failed to do, over and over and over again.  Know the enemy as you know yourself.

STAGE 3

This is where we are now.  The caliphate.  10,000 odd fighters from Syria and western Iraq rolling unopposed into Baghdad, collecting new and slightly used combat equipment to include rifles (only dropped once) armor, artillery and aviation assets.  Sunni’s and Shia’s alike are deserting en masse from the conquering horde.  Sunni’s who supported OIF are being beheaded alongside their Shia counterparts, other Sunni’s are shedding their uniforms and joining the ranks of ISIS.

Will Baghdad stand, no, not for long.  We have yet to fully see the bloodshed that will occur as the army of the jihad descends on the metropolis, and those who are unfortunately unable to escape will be killed in the most grisly extermination of humanity we will have ever seen, and yes, it will be seen.

Southern Iraq will empty like a grade school on the last day of school, moving to sanctuary in Iran. With the home of the caliphate secured, the entirety of the middle east will fall into submission.  The lines will be erased, the Arab empire will stand in its place with a very large collection of military gear that we and our Soviet antagonists have bequeathed over decades as we fought for influence in that important region.  Israel will be in the fight for their lives.

STAGE 4

Defeat the apostates.  Iran will fall.  It will be genocide.  We had a chance to spare Iran, but we turned our backs.  The Iranian people will suffer for our inaction.  Not the Ayatollah’s and the mullah’s, but the average Iranian who wanted to live like their grandparents, and dance to the Happy Song.

STAGE 5

The last stage is the biggest and most dangerous enemy to islam, the Asians.  Specifically, the Mongolian cousins; Japan, Korea and Mongolia.  The warfighting skill and true brutality of the descendants of Genghis Khan are legendary.  Japan nearly conquered all of North Asia, Southeast Asia and pushed the Americans out of the Pacific.  What would the world look like today if the carriers had been tied to the docks on December 7th, 1941.

The Korean Army and Marines were so feared by the North Vietnamese, they would kill themselves rather than surrender, and lastly, there is a 7000 mile wall that separates China from Mongolia.  And it was the Khan’s who adopting islam to help govern their territories, would eventually seize the caliphate and form the longest standing empire.

The Ottoman Empire, which lasted nearly 500 years until it was broken in 1922 at the end of WWI.   Broken in part by Arab muslims who did not believe that the Turkish interlopers should command the caliphate of islam.

Wars end when they are ended, not when political expediency and cowardice decide to leave the battlefield.  We chose not to end the war, but to be honest; our decision makers have little understanding of what the war is.

The mainstream media trumpets the Administration’s assertions that we need to defeat the group that attacked us (the good war against al Qaeda), but they cannot describe what al Qaeda is.  The big fear that another 9/11 is being plotted against the US, is prudent, but we have surrendered, there is no need for al Qaeda to devote resource and mental rigor to another high visibility attack on the West or us in particular.  We surrendered and are now a by-pass unit.

obama-signs-secret-pact-supporting-syrian-rebel-army 6

While we hold significant combat power, we lack the moral gumption to apply it.  No, better to direct the 5th column elements in the country already to conduct small operations, in traffic, in tunnels, at an Army base, or at the Boston Marathon.  That increases the likelihood that we will accept our dhimmitude and pay the jiyza tax.  Most won’t notice because Jay-Z and Beyonce are fighting in an elevator, who cares if gasoline prices rise to 400 dollars a barrel.

In the minds of our enemy, we have surrendered and there is nothing to fear from us.  I dispute their claims, as we both get a vote. We have to muster whatever moral courage we have left and destroy ISIS.  The enemy does not acknowledge any rules of conduct on the battlefield, we need to fight him on his terms, not ours.  The political-military doctrine that is disguised as a religion needs to be exposed and defeated.

In 1075, Islam devoured Manzikert in what is now Turkey, it was poised to push into Christendom with the ferocity that had consumed Persia, Egypt and the entire Middle East, this was the reason for the Crusades, a defensive action that almost defeated islam, alas it didn’t, and here we are doomed to a repeat of history. We may have only one chance to finish the job.  Die free or live as a slave, we don’t have much time to mull that one over.
