U.S. EQUIPS KURDISH FORCES WITH ARMORED VEHICLES
The Kurdish led Syrian Democratic Forces have long requested heavier support from the U.S. and now they’re getting it
Wed, February 1, 2017

A shipment of armored vehicles has been sent to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) by the U.S. government to help the fight against ISIS. The SDF is a coalition of militia groups led by the YPG which fights against ISIS in northern Syria.
The vehicles called “Guardians” are manufactured by a Canadian firm.
“American armored vehicles have arrived for the Syrian Democratic Forces for the first time," SDF spokesman Talal Sello told media. "This happened after the new U.S. administration came to power.
He credited the change in support with the arrival of the new administration, saying “previously we didn't get support in this form; we would get light weapons and ammunition. There are signs of full support from the new American leadership - more than before - for our forces.”

Trump's 'Muslim Ban'
It’s not a ban, and it’s not on Muslims. It’s about Region, not Religion. Have your say!

DON’T LET CAIR TAKE ADVANTAGE
In the aftermath of Trump’s executive order, groups like the Council on American Islamic Relations are trying to increase their support.
Many people across the political spectrum have voiced opposition to President Donald Trump’s Executive Order temporarily banning people from seven listed Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
Foremost among these is the Council on American Islamic Relations, which presents itself as America’s foremost Muslim civil rights organization.
However, the organization is not solely interested in supporting the constitutional religious freedoms afforded to Muslim Americans. It is connected to the international Islamist organization the Muslim Brotherhood, which ultimately seeks to implement a system of sharia governance under a caliphate

.WHY TERRORISM?
Terrorism is a specific strategy that’s employed to advance the strategic goals of the groups which use it. Here’s why.
Terrorism is often thought of as a plan to kill as many people as possible, lashing out in blind fury against anyone who does not share the extremist beliefs of the terrorist organization. But it isn’t. It’s a strategy of carefully-deployed violence that seeks to advance the goals of the terrorist organizations which choose that path.
Here are four reasons why terrorism has become the tactic of choice for Islamist groups which choose violence.
1) Defeating America Militarily is Almost Impossible

ISLAMISTS CELEBRATE PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY VICTORY IN FRANCE
As France readies to elect a new president, Islamists are rooting for the Socialist candidate Benoît Hamon, who just won his party's primary.
Benoît Hamon, the ’candidate of the Muslim Brotherhood,’ won the January 29 second round of the French Socialist Party primaries by a landslide 58.71 percent against former prime minister Manuel Valls, who gained 41.29%.
Hamon’s victory was met with an explosion of jubilation by French Islamists on their social media accounts.

Germany, Malaysia Make ISIS-Linked Arrests
German police officers also raided a mosque thought to be used as a recruiting ground for Islamic State. One suspect is a guard with a national airline. Wed, February 1, 2017
While ISIS may be in territorial decline in the Middle East, the search continues elsewhere for its operatives, recruiters and supporters. Germany and Malaysia just announced the arrests of Islamic State-linked terror suspects.
In the German case, Berlin security personnel arrested three men who were planning on traveling to train and fight with ISIS. German police officers said there was no evidence the men were preparing to launch an imminent attack inside Germany.

ISIS MEMBERS ARE BEING KILLED BY IRAQIS
Reports are emerging from Iraq that as the group loses ground, locals are taking revenge on Islamic State’s hated fighters.
A “mysterious blast” killed ISIS commander Abu Taha al-Iraqi and three other militants on the border between Diyala and Salahuddin provinces on January 30.
A day earlier, ISIS executioner Abu Sayyaf, who killed at least 100 people, was ambushed and stabbed to death in Mosul by unknown assailants.
Last week ISIS commander Abu Abdel Rahman was shot and killed by unknown gunmen.
These sudden attacks are thought to be revenge killings as ISIS loses its grip on control as it is driven back.

PROMINENT CHRISTIANS OPPOSE PRIORITIZING CHRISTIAN REFUGEES
Some Christian leaders condemned Washington’s decision to start prioritizing Christians when considering refugee applications.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Mon, January 30, 2017
Senior Christian leaders from various sects have spoken out against U.S. President Donald Trump’s plan to give first preference to religious minorities when accepting refugees.
Trump’s recent Executive Order on immigration mandated that when the refugee resettlement program is restarted, following a 120-day suspension, it will prioritize Christian refugees and those of other persecuted faiths, as opposed to Muslims when dealing with refugees from Syria and Iraq.
Last year Christians made up almost half of the 85,000 refugees admitted to the United States. The U.S. allowed in 37,521 Christians and 38,901 Muslims in 2016, according to Pew Research. Of refugees admitted from Syria in 2016, 99% were Muslim and just 1% were Christian.
Those objecting include the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the multidenominational Church World Service.

TRUMP MULLS BANNING MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AS TERRORIST GROUP
Senior members of Trump’s transition team told reporters the White House is considering adopting the policy
The White House is mulling designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, according to unnamed members of Trump’s transition team who described a faction in favor and a faction against the move.
A senior member of Trump’s transition team, speaking on condition of anonymity told Reuters, “I know it has been discussed. I'm in favor of it.”
A bill to designate the international Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood is gathering steam in Congress.
Clarion Project spearheaded a campaign to educate legislators and move the bill forward over the past year. The bill currently has bipartisan support.
In November of 2015, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced the bill, which identifies three Brotherhood entities in the U.S. including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The United Arab Emirates designated CAIR as a terrorist organization in 2014.

FIREFIGHTER IS 124TH FIRST RESPONDER TO DIE POST 9/11
Irish-born Brian J Masterson, 61, lost his battle against esophageal cancer making him the latest victim of al-Qaeda terrorism in the West.
BY DAVID HARRIS Mon, January 30, 2017
When Brian Masterson lost his fight against cancer, he became just another largely forgotten statistic.
He’s ‘just ‘ the 124th responder to die post 9/11. Not the 100th or even the 125th. Just 124th. That’s a forgettable number.
Irish-born Masterson’s funeral took place at Most Precious Blood Roman Catholic Church in Walden, New York on January 27. The 61-year old died seemingly as a result of breathing in toxic air the day the Twin Towers came down.
Victim 123 died a day before Masterson. But he is already a forgotten number for most people. His name was and remains forever Kevin Rooney. He was a 23-year-old firefighter the day the Twin Towers came down.
So many young Americans cannot remember the day the Twin Towers came down. It’s now taught in history courses in the U.S.
But the legacy of 9/11 is still very much with us.

SIX KILLED IN TERROR ATTACK ON QUEBEC MOSQUE
At this time the motive of the perpetrators is unknown, police say two masked gunmen opened fire during services.
A terrorist attack took place in a mosque in Quebec City on Sunday night, killing six and wounding eight more. Masked gunmen burst into an Islamic Center in a suburban area and opened fire as worshippers were finishing their prayers.
Two suspects were arrested but the investigation is ongoing. Police have not yet announced a possible motive for the crime. Others have speculated the attack was motivated by anti-Muslim sentiment.
“It seemed to me that they had a Québécois accent,” a witness told Radio-Canada’s French language service. “They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, 'Allahu Akbar!' The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head. There were even kids. There was even a three-year-old who was with his father.”
The Quebec Islamic Cultural Center was targeted last year in a hate crime in which as pig’s head was delivered to the mosque along with a note reading “Bonne appétit.” The mosque reportedly has a small congregation of around 100 people, predominantly students from the nearby Laval University.

HEAD OF ISIS’ WOMEN’S BRIGADE FLEES WITH MILLIONS
Meanwhile, ISIS executes female fighters who refused to wear Afghani men’s clothing and carry arms in Ninveh Province, Iraq.
The leader of ISIS’ al-Hansa women’s battalion escaped with four of her assistants and millions of dollars, according to the Arabic-language al-Sumaria News.
ISIS members were reportedly chasing the quintet across Ninveh Province in Iraq.
Al-Hansa administers female suicide bombers and female prisons in areas controlled by Islamic State. Among the punishments meted out by al-Hansa is the biting of ‘offenders’.
“Four are Arabs and one is from Tajikistan,” an eyewitness told the news outlet. “The leader of the battalion is also considered ISIS’ minister of women’s affairs.”
The report suggests the women were headed for Syria.
Al-Sumaria also reports (Arabic) ISIS forcing women to wear Afghani men’s clothes and carry weapons to fight against the oncoming Iraqi military.
ISIS reportedly executed three women by gunfire because they refused to so do.

CHANGING CHANGING-THE-GUARD AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE
Thanks to terror fears the ceremony will not take place every day, while the Saturday tradition is canceled at Windsor Palace.
Mon, January 30, 2017
The famous changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace in London has undergone changes because of fears it could be targeted for terrorism. Meanwhile, the similar Saturday ceremony at nearby Windsor Castle was canceled indefinitely.
The decisions were taken after recent terror strikes in Europe such as the truck attacks in Nice and Berlin last year.
Armed police officers now accompany the ceremony at Buckingham Palace, while checkpoints surround the area. The spectacle only takes place at Buckingham Palace on specific days rather than alternate days as was the custom for decades. It was also moved half an hour earlier so as not to clash with the extra traffic at lunchtime.
And just in case there isn't a ceremony next time you're in London here's a reminder:

IS TRUMP'S PLAN TO TEMPORARILY BAN REFUGEES JUST?
Clarion Project looks at the pros and cons of halting immigration to the U.S. from Syria indefinitely and from other countries for 120 days
Executive orders will be signed by newly-inaugurated President Donald Trump to temporarily halt refugees from coming to the United States, The New York Times reported.
In a preliminary draft of the order obtained by the newspaper, the plan calls for an indefinite ban on refugees from Syria and 120-day ban on refugees from all other parts of the world. At the end of the ban, refugees from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen would be barred an additional 30 days.
At the end of the waiting period, the number of refugees admitted to the U.S. would be cut roughly in half, from 110,000 to 50,000.
“It’s going to be very hard to come in,” the president said. “Right now, it’s very easy to come in.”
At the same time, Trump ordered a wall to be built on America’s border with Mexico and revived existent programs that provide for the federal government to work with local and state officials to track, arrest and deport illegal immigrants with criminal records.
“We are going to get the bad ones out — the criminals and the drug dealers and gangs and gang members,” he said. “The day is over when they can stay in our country and wreak havoc. We are going to get them out, and we are going to get them out fast.”
Although the plan is billed as an about-face from the previous administration’s approach, Obama deported millions of illegal immigrant workers during his first term.
Since then, plans were drawn up to give citizenship to many of the country’s illegal immigrants.

ISIS GRAPHIC VIDEO: KIDS' SHOOTING EXERCISE WITH LIVING TARGETS

In its latest video, ISIS places bound prisoners in an abandoned building and then lets loose child soldiers to hunt and kill them.
Clarion Project condemns ISIS and its action with every fiber in our collective body but believes the truth must be told about the evil that is ISIS. That is why we decided to publish this video.

WHERE IT’S A CRIME TO BLOG
We've collated painful stories of bloggers who are imprisoned or worse as their respective societies don’t respect freedom of expression
In Western countries bloggers merrily write and self-publish knowing that they are safe to so do unless they incite to violence. Not only do they espouse their own political views on a regular basis, they by and large welcome the cut and thrust of debate with those who hold differing views.
Not so in Islamist societies.
Here are just a handful of stories of those imprisoned or worse because freedom of expression is unacceptable and even forbidden in their respective societies:
Merzoug Touati. This young blogger was arrested in Algeria on January 22, according to Salah Debouz, president of the Algerian League for the Defense of Human Rights. “I presume that is related to his writings. For now I have no more details,” said Debouz. Touati, who runs alhogra.com was scheduled to stand trial on January 25. The list of Algerian prisoners of conscience reportedly continues to grow.
Raif Badawi. Arguably the best known of the imprisoned bloggers, Badawi received 10 years in jail and 1,000 lashes from a Saudi court. Badawi's "crime" was moderating an internet forum that encouraged participants to voice their opinion about religion in the kingdom. He founded the online forum “Free Saudi Liberals” in 2008 which encouraged open debate about issues that are normally considered taboo in the heavily-regulated Wahhabi kingdom.
Ahmed Douma. Ahmed Maher. Mohammed Adel. These gentlemen were among Egypt’s leading bloggers until they were sentenced to three years with hard labor in 2014. Between them they had four million followers on Twitter. Maher was released from jail in January 2017. They were arguably the lucky ones, when compared to Khaled Said. He was known in the early days of the Arab Spring by his penname Sandmonkey until he was tortured and murdered by two Egyptian police officers.

GET TO KNOW IRAN’S TERRORIST 'AMBASSADOR' TO IRAQ
The appointment of Brigadier General Iraj Masjedi provides a clear insight into the terrorist nature of the mullahs’ intentions.
Iran’s new ambassador to Iraq is part of a terrorist network, an advisor of the notorious Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force. Brigadier General Iraj Masjedi replaces Hassan Danaii Far, himself a senior IRGC member.
“The Iranian embassy in Baghdad is considered a strategic post outside the country and the ambassador is a highly important figure,” notes the state-run Asre Iran daily.
Masjedi is often quoted by Iran’s media as a senior advisor to the terrorist Quds Force commander Qassem Suleimani, also sanctioned by the West and under a travel ban.
According to the Saudi news site Al Arabiya, “The Revolutionary Guards considers the Iranian embassy in Baghdad of strategic importance within the states that are subject to Iranian influence.
“Since the fall of the former Iraqi regime in 2003, all the ambassadors of Iran to Iraq were members of the Revolutionary Guards.”
In contrast to international political norms, Iran’s embassy in Iraq is not under foreign ministry authority. The IRGC enjoys complete hegemony over this diplomatic post.

IS AFGHANISTAN AMERICA’S NEW VIETNAM?
There are still 13,000 U.S. military personnel in Afghanistan, including 10,000 soldiers. The Taliban says it killed 17,500 people in 2016
BY DAVID HARRIS Wed, January 25, 2017
Members of a U.S. Army carry team move the flag-draped transfer case holding the remains of Army Pfc. Tyler R. Iubelt of Tamaroa, Illinois, during a dignified transfer at Dover Air Force Base November 15, 2016 in Dover, Delaware. Iubelt, 20, who was assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Special Troops Battalion, 1st Sustainment Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division in Fort Hood, Texas, died November 12 of injuries sustained from a suicide bomb attack at Bagram Airfield near Kabul in Afghanistan. (Photo © Alex Wong/Getty Images)
On April 30, 1975, the United States finally pulled out of Vietnam after 19 years, 5 months, 4 weeks and 1 day.

On September 26, 2001, the U.S. planted its first boots in Afghanistan in the wake of 9/11. Fifteen years, 3 months, 30 days later, there are 13,000 members of the American military still in the quagmire that is Afghanistan. Five thousand and six hundred days fighting a battle that some say is simply unwinnable.

In 2016 alone, the Taliban claims it killed more than 17,500 people. In total, some 3,500 Americans gave their lives since the invasion with in excess of 20,000 wounded.

The reasons for the U.S. presence in Afghanistan are obvious and without them, the Afghan’s would slip back into the never-ending swamp of warfare.

Here are some more facts about the “Vietnam” of the 21st Century that came to light in the last few days:

Iran is supplying the Taliban with rockets, according to the governor of Helmand Province
The Taliban launched some 19,000 attacks over the last 10 months, says the Afghan Defense Ministry
As many as 50 people were killed in two explosions in Kabul
Up to 80 ISIS and al-Qaeda fighters were killed in foreign-nation airstrikes in Zabul Province
Germany sent dozens of Afghani refugees back to Kabul. The refugees fear they are returning to death
The problem for the Pentagon and White House is that as soon as America withdraws the last of its 10,000 soldiers and 3,000 trainers, Afghanistan will likely collapse and Islamists could well raise their flag once again over yet another country.
The Islamists are determined to achieve that aim and Afghanistan is ripe for the picking.
The dilemma for Washington is not just moral – the question of how many more Afghanis will die should the U.S. quit – but also strategic. Can the U.S. afford for Islamist ideology to spread even further and deeper in a part of the world that is often out of control and spreads its hate far and wide, including across the borders of Europe and North America?

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT ISIS COULDN'T DO ANYTHING WORSE
In the Al Hawija district of Iraq's Kirkuk province, which ISIS has controlled since June 2014, ISIS has devised the most horrific forms of execution
Mon, January 23, 2017
ISIS cut out a man’s heart and ate it while he was still alive, as well as executing seven people it accused of spying for the regime with a bulldozer.
Sources in the Kirkuk province who requested anonymity spoke to Al Sumariya News on Sunday relating the latest horrors perpetrated by Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL).
“Islamic State [ISIS/ISIL] used a bulldozer to execute seven people that were charged with contacting government forces. The bulldozer ran them over while they were alive. Among the people who were executed were people who belonged to the Iraqi security forces,” the source said.
In a separate incident, the source told how “one ISIS fighter cut out a man’s heart and ate it while the man was still alive. The man was charged with contacting government forces. ISIS executed the prisoners at the air force base in Bakara near the Al Hawija district located 55 kilometers southwest of Kirkuk and took photos of it.”
Since gaining control of Al Hawija in June 2014, ISIS has executed dozens of residents of the district for various “crimes.” The most common offense is cooperating with Iraqi security forces

SHOULD THE US LEAVE THE UN?
A bill to pull America out of the UN has been put before Congress. We look at the links between the UN and Islamism and debate the issue.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Mon, January 23, 2017
A bill to pull America out of the United Nations has been proposed. The American Sovereignty Restoration Act would completely remove the U.S. from the United Nations and pull out all U.S. funding for the body.

According to Snopes.com there have been efforts to pull the United States out of the UN since the UN was created in 1945. This bill has been put before the house every year for the last 20 years, but has languished in the House Foreign Affairs Committee and never made it to a vote.

But it is a good idea?
While there are other reasons to support or oppose the UN unrelated to the issue of Islamist extremism, Islamist regimes and their supporters have used the United Nations as a means of advancing their agendas and covering up their human rights violations.
We assess the pros and cons of the United Nations through the lens of tackling radical Islam.
PROS
The United Nations re-elected Saudi Arabia to a seat on its human rights council (UNHRC) this November. This empowers Saudi Arabia to vote on issues of how the UN fights for human rights globally. This is a country where women are not allowed to drive, where critics of the regime face imprisonment, lashes or worse and where the state-sanctioned Wahhabi creed is allowed free reign to govern according to its draconian interpretation of sharia law.

TRUMP CHOOSES WRONG IMAM FOR NAT'L PRAYER SERVICE
In his first speech as president, Trump promised to eradicate ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ The job needs the right partners.
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Sun, January 22, 2017
While the participation of Muslim clergy in the traditional interfaith National Prayer Service held the morning after the presidential inauguration is to be applauded, the imam chosen for the job should not.
January 21 saw Mohamed Magid take his place among other faith groups at Washington National Cathedral at a service in honor of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
Magid is the executive director of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center and former executive director of Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).
In September 2014, Magid endorsed a letter opposing the Islamic State terrorist group’s tactics, but endorsed sharia governance’s brutal hudud punishments, the recreation of a caliphate and the Islamist doctrine of gradualism. The letter also implied that journalists that are viewed as dishonest are acceptable targets for violence.
Declassified FBI memos reveal that ISNA was identified as a Brotherhood front as early as 1987. A 1988 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood document states ISNA is part of the “apparatus of the Brotherhood.” A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood document, which says “its work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within,” lists ISNA as the first of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”

UNDER SHARIA LAW, THESE WOMEN ARE IMMORAL
A female bodybuilder in Iran, women horseback riders in Saudi Arabia and female bicyclists in Gaza have done all things to ire Islamist culture.

Shirin Nobahari (Photo: Instagram)
the Daily Mail. She was charged with violating the Islamic Republic’s laws on nudity and thrown in jail after being unable to post bail.
The identity of the body builder was not published but media speculated that the photos were of Shirin Nobahari, who, along with another Iranian woman, participated in an international competition last September.

“Nude” in Iran is any body part that is not covered by the mandatory Islamic clothing – i.e., arms, legs or hair.

THE SUBJUGATION OF FRANCE: SALAFISM ON THE STREETS
A new collection of testimonials by civil servants, teachers, social workers, doctors, nurses, police and mayors show France in transformation
BY LESLIE SHAW Mon, January 23, 2017
In Les Territoires Perdus de la République (The Lost Territories of the Republic), a prophetic book edited by historian Georges Bensoussan published in 2002, a group of French school teachers described the wave of anti-Semitism, misogyny and Islamism that was sweeping through schools in the suburbs surrounding Paris.
The book was met with a deafening media silence.
Fifteen years later, Bensoussann has edited a follow-up: Une France Soumise (A Subjugated France), a collection of testimonials by over 70 civil servants, teachers, social workers, doctors, nurses, law enforcement officers and mayors.
The face of France has been transformed in the intervening years. What was a rippling wave back in 2002 has become a tsunami spreading out from the suburban zones that threatens to engulf the entire country.

5 FACTS ABOUT SAUDI ARABIA’S MALE GUARDIANSHIP SYSTEM
Saudi Arabia’s male guardianship system is the biggest factor keeping women from being able to live full lives.
Mon, January 23, 2017
Saudi Arabia’s male guardianship system is the biggest factor keeping women from being able to live full lives.

1) Every woman in Saudi Arabia must have a male guardian. A woman’s “guardian” is typically her father or, husband, but it can even be her brother or son. In order to travel abroad, marry and sometimes to work or access health care, a woman must have her guardian’s permission.


2) A Human Rights Watch report called the male-guardianship system in Saudi Arabia “the most significant impediment to realizing women’s rights in the country.”


3)What having a male guardian essentially means is that a woman in Saudi Arabia is never recognized by the Saudi government as full legal adults. She is treated as though she is a minor unable to make many important decisions in her life on her own.

TURKEY APPROVES NEW POWERS FOR ERDOGAN
The legislation will first be put to a nationwide referendum this spring after parliament voted its approval
Sun, January 22, 2017
Turkey’s parliament gave preliminary assent to sweeping constitutional amendments that would abolish the office of the prime minister and see Turkey’s president gain executive powers. The vote will be put to a nationwide referendum in the spring.
The amendments were passed 339 to 149. The vote required a three-fifths majority (330) before the legislation could be put to a referendum. [If the legislation had garnered a two-thirds (367), it would have become law straight away.]
One lawmaker handcuffed herself to the microphone in a last-ditch attempt to stop the bill from passing.
Prime Minister Binali Yilderim said the changes would create a “sole power that would be strong.”
In total, the parliament approved 18 separate amendments to the constitution which must now be ratified in a referendum slated to take place in April. However the country is still under a state of emergency since the attempted coup in mid-July.

INDIANA MIDDLE SCHOOLERS INTRODUCED TO WHITEWASHED SHARIA
As one parent said: The sharia curriculum is like saying that Hitler was as an effective ruler leaving out that he slaughtered 6 million Jews.
A middle school in Indiana has come under fire for a worksheet teaching students about sharia law that whitewashes the many human rights violations inherent in the body of Islamic law reported the Courier-Journal.
“The way that the worksheet is left would be like describing how effective Hitler was at nationalizing Germany and creating patriotism but leaving out that he slaughtered 6 million Jews," said Dean Hohl, one of several parents who voiced his opinion at a recent school-board meeting.
The worksheet is part of the curriculum for seventh-graders at Highland Hills Middle School. On one part of the sheet is an account written by a fictional character, a 20-year-old Saudi woman named Ahlima, who writes that she feels "very fortunate" to live under sharia law in Saudi Arabia. She describes how she will soon become the second wife to a Saudi man.

JIHAD: THE NEW 'VALUE' IN TURKEY’S EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM
Turkey is in the process of including the concept of jihad in compulsory school curricula beginning in the 7th grade.
BY UZAY BULUT Thu, January 19, 2017
Turkey is in the process of including the concept of jihad in compulsory school curricula. According to a recent statement by the Turkish Ministry of National Education, Turkish textbooks will be teaching “jihad” as a “value” in classes at Imam Hatip middle schools (schools that offer an Islamic curriculum to pupils).
The ministry has also removed a chapter on the theory of evolution from a textbook for 12th graders.
At a press conference on January 13, Ismet Yilmaz, the minister of national education, explained the details of the new curricula to members of the press. According to the newspaper Cumhuriyet, jihad will be taught in 7th grade while pupils study the fundamentals of “tawhid and wahdat civilization.” (Tawhid is the Islamic belief in the oneness of God and wahdat refers to Islamic unity.)
During 8th grade, jihad will be taught also under the title “Struggling on the path to Allah: jihad” and under the chapter “Worshipping Allah.”

10 REASONS HAMAS SHOULD NOT BE IN ANY GOVERNMENT
Fatah and Hamas have formed a national-unity government following talks in Moscow. Here’s why that’s a bad idea.
Thu, January 19, 2017
Fatah and Hamas, which control the West Bank and the Gaza Strip respectively, concluded an agreement to form a national unity government. The Palestinian Authority, which is the official body that rules the Palestinian-controlled areas, as per the Oslo Accords, will now begin the process of forming a new national council. The P.A. president is Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas.
Hamas and Fatah also announced they will hold elections that will include members of the Palestinian diaspora. Elections were last held in 2007.
“We have reached agreement under which, within 48 hours, we will call on [Palestinian Authority President] Mahmoud Abbas to launch consultations on the creation of a government,” Fatah spokesman Azzam al-Ahmad told media.

Here are ten reasons why Hamas is not fit to be part of any government.
1) Hamas Is A Designated Terrorist Organization
Hamas is a terrorist group and is designated as such by Israel (obviously) but also the United States, the EU, Canada and Japan so this one should come as no surprise.

FATWA IN QATAR: NO ANIMALS ON KIDS CLOTHING
A Qatari government body ruled it’s forbidden according to sharia law to have pictures of animals on children’s clothing.
Qatari clerics issued a ruling that children are not allowed to wear clothing with animals on according to sharia law.
The Center of Islamic Fatwas of Qatar, which is a government body, issued the fatwa in response to a question about the permissibility of putting pictures of animals on children’s clothing.
The center replied that pictures of anything with a soul or a spirit is haram, meaning forbidden according to sharia law. They quoted a hadith as saying Mohammed said, “The angels don’t come into a house which has a dog or a picture.”
The center said there are many in the ulema (Islamic scholars) who say it’s forbidden to have a picture of anything that has a soul or a shadow.

5 THREATS POSED BY RETURNING ISIS FIGHTERS
ISIS has reportedly offered its foreign fighters the chance to return home. Here’s what might happen if they do
Tue, January 17, 2017
Islamic State Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has reportedly given foreign fighters a choice of returning home or carrying out suicide bombings, according to a report by local media outlet Al-Sumaria News.
A source in Ninevah Province said the terrorist group had closed it’s “troops and migrants bureau” that administers foreign fighters and offered the men the chance to die as a martyr in a suicide bombing or to return to their countries of origin.
Here are five risks of what might happen if they did return:

1)They could carry out terrorist attacks in America and Europe
Returning fighters pose a clear national security threat. It only takes one security lapse for a returning jihadi to be able to launch a terrorist attack in their country of origin. Mehdi Nemmouche, the terrorist who murdered four people at the Brussels Jewish museum in 2014 spent time in Syria where he is believed to have been a torturer for ISIS.

SHOULD CLARION SHARE ISIS VIDEOS? FACEBOOK SAYS 'NO'
After Facebook shut us down for a week for publishing an ISIS video, we asked our readers their opinion on this question. Here are your responses
There's an ongoing discussion about the validity of sharing graphic ISIS videos. Clarion Project firmly believes that it is necessary to share these videos to awaken the world to the horror of ISIS (Islamic State/ISIL) -- to show what this brutal group is actually doing.
As a matter of policy, we place the videos low in our articles, make sure they do not autoplay and always warn our readers of their content. We thus make it the reader's decision whether or not to watch them.
Last week, after we published on Facebook an ISIS video which showed a small child ready to execute a man on his knees in a ball pond of an amusement park (see image above), Facebook not only took the video down, but banned us from posting on our Facebook page for an entire week.
Should Clarion share ISIS videos? That’s the question we ask our readers. Here is a sampling of the hundreds of responses we received. We thank all who took the time to write to us.

GIRL POWER! MEET THE WOMEN WHO ARE FIGHTING BACK
1. Afghani women take up arms against the Taliban; Kurdish and Yazidi women fight ISIS; Saudi and Iranian women oppose repression.
Afghan women in the province of Jawzjan have demanded – and received – arms from the local police to protect themselves against the Taliban and the newly active Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in their area.
The women, most of whom have lost multiple family members to these jihadi organizations are determined not to go down without a fight - and if they can take the terrorists down instead, so much the better.
"I lost nine members of my family. The Taliban and Daesh (Islamic State) killed my five sons and four nephews," one woman told the news outlet Wion News. "I have taken up arms to defeat the terrorists so other people's sons won't get killed."
The local police commander, Sher Ali, said that the women asked him for guns and ammunition last month. "They came to me and said that if I didn't provide them with weapons they would kill themselves - before Daesh or the Taliban could," he said, speaking to Thomson Reuters Foundation.
One woman in her twenties, who requested anonymity, said her husband as well as many other family members had been killed by the Taliban. She is determined to fight back. "I hit the Taliban with this PK (machine gun), and the Taliban fled. Most of their men died. I will stand against Daesh and will hit them too," she declared.

Pop Singer Saves Concertgoer From Groping
Famous singer Atif Aslam stopped his concert in Karachi to prevent an ongoing molesting attack on a woman in the crowd.
Wed, January 18, 2017
Pakistani singer Atif Aslam was in the middle of performing a concert in Karachi when he spotted a girl being molested by the crowd.
He immediately told his band to stop the music and went over to confront the culprits. “Have you ever seen a girl? She could be your mother or a sister,” he told them.
He then asked his band members to “rescue her” in English and they pulled her up onto the stage. As they did so the crowd chanted “Atif, Atif!”
“"If you behave yourself, you will get a proper show,” he warned the crowd before continuing with the concert. “Otherwise it will wrap up early ... be a human being.”
The singer received plaudits for his prompt actions on social media.
Pakistan is heavily influenced by Islamism and interactions between men and women are limited by convention. Women are treated as lesser than men because of this ideology, leading men to have a sense of unwarranted entitlement when it comes to women’s bodies.

WHO EXACTLY HAS OBAMA BEEN RELEASING FROM GITMO?
As outgoing US President Barack Obama announces he will not be able to close the prison facility, we look at prisoners who went on to commit acts of terror.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Wed, January 18, 2017
Guantanamo Bay (Gitmo), the controversial U.S. prison facility in Cuba will remain open after outgoing President Barack Obama finishes his second term, despite his campaign pledge to close it.

Last week Obama transferred 10 prisoners to Oman. The transfer was part of his ongoing attempts to clear the facility. By contrast, incoming President Donald Trump has pledged to fill Gitmo up with “some bad dudes.”

In order to find out whom exactly Obama has been releasing, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced legislation yesterday which would require the government to declassify and publicly release information on the terrorist records of all Gitmo detainees who have been released since the November 8 presidential election.
What do we know so far about these former detainees?
Have those released from Gitmo gone on to commit acts of terrorism?

‘PATRIOTS DAY’ CRITICS: ARE THE ‘GOOD GUYS” NOW BAD?
The newly-released movie Patriots Day recounts the events of the Boston Marathon bombing and the race to apprehend the culprits.
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Wed, January 18, 2017
Patriots Day, the newly-released movie recounting the events of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, is a straight-forward telling of the explosions set by the Tsarnaev brothers that rocked the city and the race to apprehend the culprits.
It noticeably doesn’t spend much time analyzing the jihadi aspect of the attack, rather focuses on, in the words of Mashable critic Jeff Sneider, a Boston native, how the attack “united a community and brought out the best in everyone — first responders, medical professionals and especially local law enforcement officials.”

TEEN SHARIA PATROL BEHIND SAVAGE BEATINGS IN AUSTRIA
The gang, made of up six young people, is responsible for a brutal beating of a 15-year old Polish girl caught on tape as well as other attacks
A teenage “sharia patrol” responsible for a brutal beating of a Polish girl is believed to be behind a series of attacks in Vienna.
The attack against the Polish school girl, identified only as Patricia, which was taped by the gang, shocked Austria when the footage was posted and it went viral.
The “sharia patrol” is made of up six young people, some originally from Chechnya, ranging in age from 16 to 21. They have all been identified. In the taped attack, which took place in a shopping center, Patricia faces her accusers defiantly with her hands in her pockets. She takes 22 hits to her face and head. At one point, she can be seen spitting out blood.
After the attack, Patricia was taken to the hospital and treated for a double jaw fracture.

MUSLIM STUDENTS GAIN GROUP PRAYER RIGHTS IN CANADIAN SCHOOLS
In addition, the students won the right to deliver their own sermons without screening even after some sermons were previously found to be problematic.
The educational director of Canada’s sixth largest city has decided to allow Muslim students in public schools to give Friday prayer sermons without prior screening of the sermon’s content.
The policy is a reversal of current policy, which was implemented after a number of student-written sermons proved problematic.
In addition, the education director is allowing Muslim students to gather in groups for daily prayers in the schools. At school prayer services, mosque rules apply, meaning genders are segregated and menstruating girls are permitted to watch but not participate.
The ruling applies to public schools in Mississauga (a city adjoining Toronto).

CHURCH SLAMMED FOR 'OFFFENSIVE' QURAN READING IN SERVICE
The passages selected included verses specifically refuting the divinity of Jesus and calling on Muslims not to worship him.
Glasgow Church Slammed For Quran Reading in Service
The passages selected included verses specifically refuting the divinity of Jesus and calling on Muslims not to worship him.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Mon, January 16, 2017
A Quran reading from the pulpit in a Scottish cathedral has sparked outrage and anger. Passages from the Quran explicitly refuting the divinity of Jesus were read in Arabic from the lectern during the Epiphany service,which celebrates the arrival of the three kings in Bethlehem to bear witness to the birth of Jesus.
While a comparative reading of Quranic and biblical accounts of the birth of Jesus is a laudable and interesting event for a church to do for discussion purposes, to have the Quranic passages read out as part of the service is another matter entirely -- especially when the verses in question explicitly reject the divinity of Jesus at a religious ceremony during the festival that Christians believe marks the revelation of Jesus’ divinity to the world.
The church claims to have received 10,000 angry messages from Christians outraged about the reading.

WOMEN DETONATES SUICIDE BOMB WITH BABY STRAPPED TO BACK
The woman was part of three suicide bombers targeting an open market in Nigeria. Due to alert security, they blew up at a checkpoint instead.
Three female suicide bombers carried out an attack in Madagali, Adamawa State, Nigeria, one with a baby strapped to her back. Nine people were killed in the attacks, including two local vigilantes stationed at a checkpoint where all vehicles are screened before being allowed into the town.
Security personnel say many lives were saved because the women were intercepted at the checkpoint, where 14 others were injured. The women were reportedly targeting the town’s open market.
The attack marks the second time this month Madagali was targeted. The first attack killed dozens.
Although no one claimed responsibility for the attack, the Islamist terror group Boko Haram (which literally means “Western education is forbidden”) has waged a brutal war mainly in northeastern Nigeria to institute its radical brand of Islam.

WOMEN SCARED AS SUBURBAN FRANCE BECOMES RADICALIZED
Radicalization is happening through the funding of mosques by Qatar who is importing to France their radicalized version of Islam
BY CODI ROBERTSON Wed, January 11, 2017
Recent undercover footage shows two French women’s rights activists entering a cafe in the Paris suburb of Sevran. Upon entering the cafe, the two women were shocked as they were met with hostility from the notably all-male customers.
One of the male customers told the women, “It’s best to wait outside. There are men in here … In this cafe, there is no diversity.” Another customer explained, “In this cafe, there is no mixing. We are in Sevran, not Paris. Here there is a different mentality. It is like back home.”
Women in suburbs all over France are having similar experiences. After speaking to several women in a suburb of Lyon, journalist Caroline Sinz discovered that these women who now were hiding from the public used to be the ones out protesting the status quo.
“They are afraid, they have already spoken out in many cities, and were insulted and assaulted...So now to avoid threats, and being put under pressure, they censor themselves and keep quiet,” she reported.
Women in France protested these all-male cafes and areas where women are reportedly discouraged from wearing short skirts or walking alone in the evening. Groups like the prominent La Brigade des Mères (The Mother’s Brigade), which works to save children from crime and radicalization, are responsible for these organized efforts.
The attitude of some of these women is that while this way of living may be acceptable in countries like Saudi Arabia, it is not acceptable in liberal democracies like France.

5 REASONS KIDNAPPING OF PAKISTANI ACTIVISTS MATTERS TO YOU
Up to nine secular activists have disappeared in Pakistan as families scramble for news. Here's why their disappearances matters
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Tue, January 10, 2017
Over the weekend, several prominent Pakistani activists disappeared in mysterious circumstances. Activists from Pakistan are speculating that the government is behind the spate of disappearances in which at least four but possibly up to nine activists were kidnapped. Supporters of the missing activists have taken to the streets to demand they are recovered. They are sharing messages of support on social media using #RecoverSalmanHaider and #RecoverAllActivists.
Here are five reasons we should all care about what’s happening in Pakistan:
1)
These are the people fighting against the ideology of extremism
Pakistan is a large country which in the past has sheltered radical Islamist groups such as the Taliban. It’s where Osama bin Laden was able to hide out for years before he was finally brought to justice. One of the two founding fathers of modern extremist Islam, Abu A’la Maududi, was Pakistani.

SAUDI WOMAN OFFERS DAUGHTER AS GIFT TO HERO POLICE OFFICER
A patriotic' Saudi mother offered her 22-year-old daughter to a policeman who killed a terrorist in a shootou
Thu, January 12, 2017
A Saudi woman named Umm Ahmad decided to give her 22-year-old daughter as a gift to policeman Jubran Awaji, after she learned Awaji had shot and killed a terrorist in Riyadh.
“I immediately announced to my daughter, Alaa, who saw a video of the incident, that I was proud of this man who risked his life and I wished that he would become my son-in-law and marry her,” Umm Ahmad told media.
She said she doesn’t mind if her daughter becomes Awaji’s second or even third wife and said that her offer was genuine and sincere. She said she doesn’t want the mahr (bride price) and will pay the expenses of the marriage.
When she told her husband about the offer he said, “Have you reached such an obsession with the country and with nationalism?”
However, he approved the offer and praised the bravery of Awaji. Marriages in Saudi Arabia are illegal without the consent of a woman’s male guardian, initially her father but later on her husband.

QATAR TO OPEN EMBASSY IN GAZA: REPORT
The oil rich nation plans to establish a permanent embassy in Gaza according to Qatar’s Gaza Reconstruction Committee.
Wed, January 11, 2017
The head of Qatar’s Gaza Reconstruction Committee Abd al-Halim al-Issawi announced on Monday that the country intended to build an embassy in the Gaza Strip.
The site has reportedly already been chosen, a 1.2 acre piece of land south of Gaza City. Issawi has greenlit the construction after visiting the proposed site with contractors, according to local news source Maan News.
Qatar has an office in Gaza, but it is not a full embassy. Most countries which recognize Palestine as a state have their consulates in the West Bank.
Qatar is a large financial backer of the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliate Hamas, the Islamist jihadist group which controls the Gaza Strip.

SYRIAN WOMEN GO TO WORK, GET DIVORCED
A sharia judge in Damascus has expressed concern that women are taking jobs in coffee shops and restaurants, which is leading to divorce.
Thu, January 12, 2017
With men away at the front, jobs in Damascus in coffee shops and restaurants are increasingly being filled by women, according to the highest ranking sharia judge of Damascus, Muhamad Maharawi.
He stated he was displeased by this change, since he has received many files for divorce from angry husbands who do not want their wives working in these occupations.
Maharawi argued that women working in coffee shops and restaurants was not appropriate for Syrian society.
He explained the reason for this shift in female occupations was due to the fact that men, who used to work in these occupations, have now migrated leaving a hole to fill.
He said that there are many jobs hat are not problematic for women and which are not prohibited under sharia law, noting that the principle which a sharia judge ought to use when considering whether or not an occupation is suitable for a woman is whether or not by working there the woman would damage their husband.
Traditional roles have a large influence in decision-making in these cases. In some areas of Syria, women working in these jobs is not considered damaging to their husband or society, he said, whereas in other areas it is. Therefore, it is very important to know each area.

MOROCCO BANS THE BURQA
Although the decision was motivated by security concerns, the ban is also 'an important step in the fight against religious extremism.'

The Moroccan Interior Ministry has ordered garment-makers and retailers throughout the North African country to stop making and selling burqas. They have further been instructed to liquidate their stocks of the garment within 48 hours or risk confiscation.
On January 9, ministry officials visited markets to hand-deliver written notices informing sellers and tailors of the decision to stop production and sale of the garment. The notice was also posted on social media platforms.
“Following the observations of the authorities, we notice that you sell burqas. We are calling on you to get rid of these garments within 48 hours and to refrain from selling them in the future,” the notice read.
A senior official at the ministry was also quoted by media outlets as saying that they had “taken measures to completely ban the import, manufacture and marketing of this garment in all cities and towns in the kingdom.”

Recent events paint a picture of a government that is secretly facilitating the Islamic State while oppressing its own minorities and journalists.
Thu, January 12, 2017
Turkish courts have arrested several pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) deputies and politicians including the party’s co-chairs since the July 15 abortive coup. The total number of HDP deputies under arrest is 11.
At least 72 co-mayors from the pro-Kurdish Democratic Regions Party (DBP) in Turkey’s predominantly Kurdish regions have reportedly been removed from their posts and been replaced by trustees appointed by Ankara and at least 60 Kurdish co-mayors have been jailed on terrorism charges.
In recent months, Turkey has targeted so many Kurdish co-mayors and politicians that it is getting harder to keep track of who among them has been arrested, jailed and released – particularly as a result of the government’s violent crackdown on the Kurdish and opposition media in Turkey.
One of the arrested politicians is Mehmet Ali Aydin, the democratically elected mayor of Diyarbakır’s Kayapinar district. Following the arrest of Aydin on December 6, former Kayapinar district governor Mustafa Kilic was appointed as trustee of the Kayapinar municipality.

This extremely graphic Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) video titled "He Made Me Alive With His Blood" features children as young as three years old executing ISIS prisoners from Deir Ez-Zor in Syria. The children have been "pulled away from their games" and sent to "do jihad" by "killing agents with their bare hands."

CLARION READERS ON FT. LAUDERDALE AND GUNS: HERE'RE YOUR ANSWERS
We asked our US readers: Is there a way to ensure terrorists can’t carry out attacks in airports while allowing legal weapons into airports?
Is there a way in future to ensure terrorists can’t carry out attacks in airports, while allowing citizens to legally bring weapons into airports?

Here are some of the 80 answers we received.

We urge our readers to get involved in educating the public and taking political action against radical Islam. Clarion’s full-length documentaries are all available to be screened – privately, for a group in your house or at a community function.

Get involved! For more information, please contact info@clarionproject.org

My opinion is we can't over react to every event. Yes, analyze if we can improve, but not at the expense of freedoms. You can't make every pubic place risk free.
M
At the end of the day, the non-secure section(s) of an airport are no different than any other public space, such as a mall. I am not sure that protecting people in these public spaces is more important than any other. Are travelers more important and/or more vulnerable than shoppers at malls or fans at a sporting event?

SHOULD PARENTS RANSOM THEIR CHILDREN FROM TERRORISTS?
The parents of murdered journalist Steven Sotloff, killed by the Islamic State, said the US government prevented them from ransoming their son.
The parents of murdered journalist Steven Sotloff, who was killed in 2014 by the Islamic State, have spoken out about how the U.S. government prevented them from giving ISIS ransom money for their son’s life.
When ISIS spoke out saying they had Sotloff in captivity, they demanded the U.S. release all the Muslims in American captivity. They also issued a ransom demand for $137 million.
Art and Shirley Sotloff told 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl they initially tried to figure out how to raise the money. They were told by the Obama administration that the U.S. does not allow its citizens to pay ransoms to terrorist groups, nor does it pay ransoms itself.

CHARLIE HEBDO JOURNALIST QUITS, SAYS PAPER HAS "GONE SOFT"
Zineb el Rhazoui quit Charlie Hebdo after accusing the paper of being too afraid to draw the founder of Islam, Mohammed, anymore.
Zineb el-Rhazoui avoided being killed in the massacre of 10 Charlie Hebdo journalists and cartoonists along with a police officer and a building maintenance worker in 2015 because she was in Casablanca. Now, two years after that massacre, she quit the publication, accusing it of going soft on Islamist extremism, arguing the paper will no longer draw the founder of Islam, Mohammed.
Charlie Hebdo was attacked by jihadists from the terrorist group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, who stated the reason for their attack was Charlie Hebdo’s depictions of the religious figure. Many Muslims find any depiction of Mohammed to be blasphemous.
To add insult to injury, the murdered staff of Charlie Hebdo was later given the Islamophobe of the Year award by Britain’s extremist-linked Islamic Human Rights Commission.
“Charlie Hebdo died on 7 January,” Rhazoui told AFP in an interview. She questioned whether the magazine still had the “capacity to carry the torch of irreverence and absolute liberty.”

In How America Lost Its Secrets: Snowden, the Man and the Theft , which will be released this week, Epstein explains how terrorists, whom the government was once able to track down and stop, have taken Snowden’s advice on how to evade security services. To our detriment, they have been successful.

'LIKE CHICKENS IN CAGES READY TO BE SLAUGHTERED'
Pakistan's blasphemy laws are usually used against the Christian minority to settle vendettas or force out entire communities. Here’s a fresh case
While Western countries send millions of dollars every year for the development of Pakistan, they are unwilling to ask the Pakistani government to repeal their archaic blasphemy laws.
Meanwhile, minorities in Pakistan are like “chickens in cages” always ready to be slaughtered.

CHILD TRAFFICKING VICTIMS FORCED TO CONVERT TO ISLAM
Police uncover a crime ring which lures Christian and Hindu children and then converts them to Islam and trafficks them.
At least 72 children were converted to Islam and trafficked over the last seven years by a Bangladeshi criminal ring that preyed on impoverished, indigenous Christian and Hindu children, according to the Dhaka Tribune.
An investigation found an extremist Muslim group was going door to door among indigenous communities in the eastern Bandarban district. The group enticed impoverished families to hand over their children, saying they would receive better education and food. However, once the ring was in possession of the children, they shipped them across the country to Dhaka and other places, converted them to Islam and placed them in madrasas.

Clarion Project's National Security Analyst Ryan Mauro tells national TV he fears the successful ISIS attack could well lead to copycats

CAIR LEADER TWEETS SUPPORT OF CONVICTED TERROR FINANCIERS
A petition calls for outgoing President Barack Obama to issue a pardon for those convicted in the largest terror financing trial in American history.
A petition calling for President Barack Obama to use his powers of clemency to secure an early release for terror financiers is circulating online. It gained the support of Imran Siddique, the executive-director of the Arizona chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).
CAIR is designated as a terrorist organization itself, by the United Arab Emirates, as it is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Siddique tweeted a link to the petition, which gained 136 retweets (at press time). He also described the trial as a “political lynching.”
The trial was the largest terrorism financing trial in American history. Five senior executives of the Holy Land Foundation, at the time the largest Muslim charity in the United States, were convicted of funneling millions of dollars to Hamas in 2008. An earlier trial in 2007 was declared a mistrial, and an appellate court upheld the sentences in 2011.
CAIR itself was listed as an unindicted co-conspirator at the Holy Land Foundation trial, a designation which was upheld by a judge despite a legal appeal launched by CAIR to have it removed. Read more about the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).

'STERILIZE HOMELESS WOMEN': IRANIAN OFFICIALS
The highest female adviser to President Rouhani as well as a number of other officials have suggested sterilization 'to put an end to social catastrophes.'
The highest female adviser to President Rouhani as well as a number of other officials have suggested sterilization 'to put an end to social catastrophes.'
Thu, January 5, 2017
Iranian media outlets lashed out against Shahindokht Molaverdi, assistant to the Iranian president Hassan Rouhani for women and family affairs, for suggesting that homeless women who are currently living in graveyards should be sterilized.
Molaverdi’s position is regarded as the top advocate for women in Iran.
Her suggestion came after the media exposed a story about 100 poor homeless people who live in south Teheran and have made graves their homes (the graves provide shelter from the cold and rain).
According to the newspaper Vatan-e Emrooz, the recommendation also came from a number of officials in the Tehran province and representatives of the parliamentary health committee.
The proposal was also brought up in meetings held in the Health ministry, where the possibility of sterilizing women who have been discarded by society to prevent them increasing the number of homeless people was discussed.

ISLAM AND THE FRENCH ELECTIONS: TABOOS BROKEN
During the election season, a prominent politician's recent statement about Islam and the workplace created a storm in France. He knew it would.
Jean-Christophe Lagarde, president of the French UDI (Union of Democrats and Independents) political party and mayor of Drancy, a northern suburb of Paris, stirred up a storm of controversy by claiming in a recent radio interview that the closure of the PSA Peugeot-Citröen auto plant in the neighbouring suburb of Aulnay-sos-Bois in December 2013 was partly due to omnipresent religious demands by Muslim workers -- including work stoppages for prayer -- that led to reduced productivity.
Lagarde claimed this information was given to him by senior executives during a lunch at the PSA headquarters at the end of 2011. The company had invited local and national politicians to announce and explain the reasons for the impending closure of the plant, which employed 3,000 workers.

The ruling party in the Palestinian Authority celebrated its 52nd anniversary with Facebook posts glorifying bloodthirsty terrorists.
Fatah, the ruling party of the Palestinian Authority, celebrated its 52nd anniversary on Saturday. They used the occasion to heap praise on some of the most vicious Islamist terrorists in Israeli history, despite being ostensibly a secular organization.
Fatah praised Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood branch and jihadist terrorist organization Hamas, featuring his picture among those on a banner of terrorists who murdered Israeli civilians. Praise was also heaped on the founder of Islamic Jihad, Fathi Shaqaqi, along with several other secular terrorists.
“Fatah embraces its people and praises the Martyrs,” the organization posted on Facebook, as translated by Palestinian Media Watch.

NIGERIAN WOMEN’S RIGHTS BILL REJECTED BY SULTAN
The bill not only gives women proper inheritance and custody rights, it can help to prevent them from joining Boko Haram for financial reasons.
According the most senior Muslim cleric in Nigeria, the sultan of Sokoto, Mohamed Sa’ad Abubakar, new proposed legislation that aims to allow women a share in their family inheritance and give widows the right to custody of their children even if they remarry is banned by the Quran.
This reaction is in strong contrast to Nigeria’s other religious half, the Christians, which has embraced the proposed legislation. While it’s unclear how many of Nigeria’s Muslims are against the bill, that number is sure to increase given the sultan’s religious status and influence.
The sultan stated at a Quranic recitation ceremony in the northwestern state of Zamfara, “Our religion is total way of life. Therefore, we will not accept any move to change what Allah permitted us to do.”

Son of Slain Gov. Faces Blasphemy Charges for Christmas Greetings
Shaan Taseer, son of Salman Taseer who was killed for calling for an end to Pakistan's blasphemy laws, sent X-mas greetings to Pakistan's Christians. BY KALEEM DEAN Tue, January 3, 2017
Shaan Taseer, one of the Pakistani business tycoons’ has been booked by the Punjab police after his Christmas video message to Asia Bibi, other faith prisoners and the general Christian community of Pakistan went viral.
The blasphemy case was registered against Taseer as a “hate crime” against the state and Islam.
Taseer is the son of Salman Taseer, the former governor of the Punjab province, who was assassinated by his bodyguard on January 4, 2011 for declaring the innocence of Asia Bibi, a well-known Pakistani Christian woman who has been the victim of Pakistan's blasphemy laws. Bibi has been languishing in a Pakistani prison on death row since 2009 for after false claims of blaphemy were made against her by Muslim women in her village.
Salman Taseer campaigned to abrogate Pakistn's blasphemy laws. He was shot and killed by his personal bodyguard Mumtaz Qadri who believed the governor’s stance was “blasphemous.” Qadri was hanged in 2016 after a judgment by the Supreme Court and the rejection of an appeal for mercy by the president of Pakistan. Qadri has since become a national hero among Pakistan’s many extremists.

Radical Islam and New Year’s Resolutions
The West must act now against radical Islam - not only dealing with terrorists but also seemingly more innocuous forms of Islamist extremism.
BY DAVID HARRIS Sun, January 1, 2017
So what’s your New Year’s resolution? A little less carb intake? Being nicer to your mother-in-law? Or if you are the leader of a Western democracy – making your citizens a little bit safer?
As if we needed another reminder, the Santa Claus terror attack in Istanbul on New Year’s Eve told us just how dangerous our enemy is.
Islamist extremism, radical Islam – call it what you will – has outstripped earthquakes, plagues and famines as the 21st Century’s number-one threat.

MUSLIM ACTIVIST TO TRUMP: BROTHERHOOD SHOULD BE BANNED

Dr. Qanta Ahmed, a Muslim activist who appeared in the Clarion Project’s Honor Diaries documentary about the oppression of women in the Muslim world, asked President-elect Trump to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization in a new op-ed in Newsday.
She recommends designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, just like its Palestinian wing, Hamas, has been designated. This is a necessary step in waging a broader ideological war against Islamism rather than just against a few specific Islamist terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State.
Dr. Ahmed writes:

The number of charities referred by the Charities Commission for extremist links has tripled in just three years.
Mon, January 2, 2017
The number of British charities investigated for extremist links is at an all-time high, according to the head of the Charity Commission, William Shawcross. He told The Sunday Times his organization spoke to police officers about concerns over extremist charities 630 times last year, up from 234 times just three years ago.
The commission opened eight compliance cases and four formal inquiries into charities for “allegations of abuse of charities for terrorist or extremist purposes, including concerns about charities operating in Syria and other higher risk areas, in which terrorist groups operate” in the year 2015/16.
Shawcross told The Sunday Times extremism was “the most potentially dangerous and deadly” problem facing charities in the UK.

U.S. ISLAMIST GROUP: FAKE FRIENDSHIP WITH NON-BELIEVERS
Islamist who appear in the public usually hide behind their 'moderate' affiliation and don't mention the fact that they are part of this radical group as well.
BY RYAN MAURO Mon, January 2, 2017
The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, an influential group that issues fatwas (Islamic religious declarations), teaches Muslims that they “are allowed to show friendship to the disbelievers outwardly but never inwardly.”
The 2009 fatwa , which was originally brought to our attention by John Rossomando of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, cites Islamic scripture in its directive that Muslims must not befriend a non-believer over a Muslim except as a form of deception in response to a possible danger.

FIDDLING WHILE 'ROME' BURNS: AN AFGHAN'S PLEA TO TRUMP
While the US concentrates elsewhere, Russia, Iran and Pakistan are helping the Taliban disrupt U.S. plans for Afghanistan and south-central Asia.
BY AJMAL SOHAIL Sun, January 1, 2017
The U.S. has been concentrating on the Middle East, Eastern Europe, the Baltic States and the Scandinavia region to segregate Russia. The U.S. has also been focusing on the Asia-Pacific region to contain China.
In addition, America and its NATO allies ended their combat operations in Afghanistan and pulled back their forces in order to protect the Middle East, Europe and South China Sea.
This implies that America is unable to simultaneously wage war on a number of fronts. Perhaps this is because of a military personnel deficit or lack of funding. However, with this decision, the U.S. lost its land superiority and air supremacy in south-central Asia, especially in Afghanistan, which it enjoyed for more than a decade.
According to a number of intelligence sources, a few months ago a Russian-made helicopter packed with officials from Russia’s Federal Security Committee,

WHY DO EU POLITICIANS AND SECURITY SEE TERROR DIFFERENTLY?
The head of the European Commission and Europe’s border agency have very different attitudes to security and migration.
Europe must respond to terrorism with “openness” and increase the number of refugees allowed into the regional bloc in the wake of the Berlin attack, according to the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker.
Europe “must continue to offer refuge to people who flee from war zones and from terror,” he told Funke Mediangruppe on December 24. He added it “would be wrong to put all refugees under suspicion” and “hate and terror have no religion, no sex, no country of origin.”
He specifically targeted those calling for tighter border restrictions, saying “anyone who pounces on the rhetoric of exclusion is helping the extremists’ way of thinking, which strengthens their spiral of hate.”
Yet his comments were directly contradicted by leading figures in Europe’s security agencies, who called for increased vigilance.
“We have to be ready,” Fabrice Leggeri, executive director of Europe’s border and coast guard agency Frontex told VOANews.
“Some people might get radicalized or manipulated or used or utilized by terrorist groups after they enter the EU,” he said. “This is something where I don't have clear indications.”

EXCLUSIVE: ISIS KILLED MY CHILDHOOD FRIEND
Dr. Zyad Fareeq, a Kakai activist from Iraq, spoke with Clarion Project about how ISIS beheaded his childhood friend.
Every death in Iraq’s ongoing carnage is a tragic personal loss to the people in their lives and has a knock-on-effect on everyone in the community.
In late October Islamic State fighters infiltrated the city of Kirkuk, in the Kurdish autonomous region of northern Iraq. There they killed eight people before they were driven out of the city. Clarion Project spoke with Dr. Zyad Fareeq of Iraq’s beleaguered Kakai community about the recent strike which had devastating consequences.
Haqar Fateh Saeed was a member of the emergency services of the Kurdistan Regional Government. He was at home with his family when his friends called him to say that ISIS had attacked Kirkuk. Sadly along with other members of the emergency services, he was captured by ISIS. They were all beheaded.
After his capture his phone rang and the ISIS jihadi answered. Saeed’s wife had called him and the jihadi answered and told her he would kill her husband immediately.

PHOENIX MAN ARRESTED FOR PLOTTING ATTACK ON MIDNIGHT MASS
Since 2014, he was been an “avowed jihadist,” posting on his Google+ account in October, “We need to get down with this ISIS S***.”
An Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) supporter was arrested in Phoenix last week for plotting a jihadi attack, very likely on a midnight mass.
Derrick Thompson, who goes by the name of Abu Talib Am-Amriki, tried to buy a gun to carry out attacks as early as January 2015, however, since he was a convicted felon, he was prohibited from purchasing a firearm.
Thompson was released in 2013 from prison after being convicted of committing two armed robberies in 2005. Thompson was armed with a handgun and an SKS rifle with a bayonet when he and two other men committed the robberies over a two-day period

FATAH THANKS UN IN BLOOD FOR ANTI-ISRAEL RESOLUTION
The ruling party of the Palestinian Authority thanked each country who voted against Israel with a political cartoon of a blood-dripping knife.
The ruling party of the Palestinian Authority, Fatah, thanked the countries of the U.N. Security Council who voted against Israeli building in territory captured in 1967 in its unique way – with a political cartoon showing a blood-dripping knife piercing Israeli communities.
As reported by Palestinian Media Watch a number of days before the vote, Fatah posted a picture on its Facebook page depicting the entire State of Israel colored like the Palestinian flag and in the shape of a knife. A hand was shown grasping the knife whose target was the word “settlements.”
After the vote, the same graphic was posted with slight alterations: above the knife was the word “thank you” and below a pool of blood. Down the side, the 14 countries that voted for the resolution were also written (Russia, Angola, Ukraine, Japan, Spain, Egypt, Malaysia, Venezuela, New Zealand, Senegal, Uruguay, France, China and the UK).

MUZZLING CRITICS OF ISLAMISM: FRANCE IN THE 21ST CENTURY
The latest case against Georges Bensoussan, an expert on European cultural history, tries to stifle the discussion about Islamic anti-Semitism.
The Collective against Islamophobia in France (CCIF) was set up in November 2003 by Samy Debah, a former preacher of Tablighi Jaamat, the global Sunni Islamic revivalist movement, after the French parliament banned the hijab in schools.
The association claims to be non-denominational and dedicated to combating “all actions or words directed at an individual linked in a real or supposed manner to Islam.”
Although it denies being associated with any political, religious or ideological groups, spokesman Marwan Muhammad has shared platforms with radical Islamists such as Imam Hassen Bounamcha and Salafist preachers Nader Abou Anas and Rachid Abou Houdeyfa.

TUNISIA ARRESTS THREE LINKED TO BERLIN TRUCK ATTACK
After Anis Amri, who carried out a terrorist attack that left nine dead in Berlin, was shot and killed by Italian police, Tunisian authorities arrested three men they say are connected to him. All the men were aged between 18 and 27 and had been active in the town of Oueslatia, Amri’s home town, according to Reuters.
Amri’s nephew was arrested in Oueslatia while the others were arrested in Tunis.
Tunisia’s move following the attack is a demonstration it wants to be seen as tough on terror, even while struggling with the issue at home.

6 REASONS ISLAMISTS WILL BE CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR
From issuing death threats for having Christmas trees to pressuring employees or schools not to display or wear decorations, Islamists are making their mark
Omar Hussain urges his fellow ISIS supporters to knock out and mug drunken infidels and send the money to the front. (Photo: Video screenshot)
After his 14-year-old sister Safaa tweeted a picture of the family’s Christmas tree, the family of well-known former One Direction singer Zayn Malik started to receive death threats from extremists accusing him of “insulting Islam.”
Malik’s father is a Muslim, while his mother was born a Christian.
“Christmas is very important to [his mother] because she was brought up a Christian. The hate that Safaa received was just disgusting,” said a source close to the family. “How anyone can send threats to a child for posting a picture of a Christmas tree is beyond belief.”

DISTURBING CLIP: FATHER URGES DAUGHTERS TO BLOW THEMSELVES UP
He encourages his two daughters to carry out suicide bombings in the name of jihad. One may have carried out the Damascus police attack
A fighter from the terrorist group formerly known as Jabhat al-Nusra filmed his two daughters preparing to blow themselves up. One of the children is thought to be the eight-year-old girl who carried out last week’s suicide bombing at a police station in Damascus. The child was the only person killed in the attack.
The video was widely shared on rebel-aligned social media on Wednesday.
“Why are you sending your daughters?” jihadist Abu Nimr asks the girl’s mother from behind the camera, according to a translation by The Independent. “One is seven and the other is eight, they're young for jihad.”
“No one is too young for jihad, because jihad is a duty for every Muslim,” she answers him.

HOW GERMANY BLUNDERED THE ARREST OF THE BERLIN ATTACKER
The many opportunities Germany had to arrest the suspect in the Christmas market attack (but did not) may have been because of 'institutionalized PC
Germany’s bungled handling of the suspect in the Berlin Christmas market attack – which began long before the attack itself – will most likely call into question the antiquated procedures currently in effect in this Western country that has found itself on the frontlines of Islamist jihad.
Hopefully, the current tragedy will prompt changes in the way Germany operates.

SAUDI ARABIA FUNDING EXTREMIST ISLAMIST GROUPS IN GERMANY?
A newly-leaked German intelligence report says Saudi Arabia, among several other countries, is funding extremist Islamic groups in Germany
A newly-leaked German intelligence report states Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar are funding extremist Islamic groups in Germany.
The German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung and Northern German public radio broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk saw the brief and raised concern regarding a reported increase in Salafism, an ultra-conservative movement within Sunni Islam, within Germany.
The report, compiled by German domestic intelligence agency Bft and Federal Intelligence Agency (BND) allegedly accuses Saudi Arabia and the two Gulf nations of funding various Islamic institutions including mosques and religious schools, as well as individual strict preachers and conversion, or “dawah” groups.
The three countries supported missionary groups as a “long-running strategy to exert influence,” according to the report. More specifically, the report called out the Saudi Muslim World League, Sheikh Eid Bin Mohammad al-Thani Charitable Association and the Kuwaiti Revival of Islamic Heritage Society (which is banned in both the U.S. and Russia for allegedly supporting al-Qaeda).

Merry Christmas - and Say It Out Loud
As Germany buries those who gave their lives for the sake of a family Christmas, Christians in the West must proudly celebrate the holy day.
BY DAVID HARRIS Tue, December 20, 2016
In Israel, a Jewish-majority state, Christmas is freely and openly celebrated. (Photo © Shoshana Palatnik)
I grew up in the United Kingdom - or Great Britain as we used to call it in our own politically-incorrect way. I am not a Christian, nor was I brought up in a Christian household. However, I was raised in a country with a strong Christian tradition.
I married an American - not a Christian, but a woman reared in a land that cherished both freedom and Christianity.
Neither of us celebrates Christmas. Nor do our children.
Once upon a time, some pretty bad things were done in the name of Christianity, but today, the religion merely preaches messages of love. And in a world where basic moral values are increasingly difficult to find, ‘Christian’ tenets such as loving one’s neighbor should be welcomed with open arms.
Yet it galls me to the very core that we in the West, country by country, are bidding Christmas farewell. In the Age of the Politically Correct we remove our Christmas trees, wish people a mere “season’s greetings” and Santa Claus and carolers often no longer bring yuletide joy in public.
Likewise, public schools increasingly remove pork from the lunchtime menu, prayers from the school day and Nativity plays from the annual calendar.
On the day Germany is burying its dead because a truck drove into a market whose sole purpose was to give people pleasure in purchasing items for the upcoming Christmas, it behooves the West to put aside this political correctness and proudly celebrate the holy day.
Of course, one should respect other beliefs and religions and encourage adherents of different faiths to celebrate their own festivals just as we did in the 1970s and ’80s in Britain, e.g., walking past the illuminated Christmas tree in City Square to return home to sing Chanukah songs.
The Jerusalem municipality hands out free Christmas trees.
This hiding of Christmas is the perfect, tragic example of the creeping Islamism or sharia you read about regularly on the pages of ClarionProject.org. Islamism does not only mean bombs and rabid preachers foaming at the mouth. Creeping Islamism is the challenge to Western customs and traditions be it via the courtroom or merely by social pressure. This willingness by the politically correct to surrender will eventually lead to the death of Christian-democratic society.

I am not a Christian but my parents chose to bring me up in a Christian society which respected my values as I respected its. Had I not, I could have chosen to leave - as could anyone today.

It’s time we stand up and wish one another a Merry Christmas. So please, if you do celebrate this holiday, enjoy it, spend quality time with your family, but don’t hide the holiday in your home. If there are still carolers in your town, go out and listen and look up to the public Christmas tree with pride and a smile.
Merry Christmas!

ISIS INDOCTRINATING KIDS WITH APPS TO BLOW UP EIFFEL TOWER
The apps purportedly teach kids Arabic but reward the user if they are prepared to carry out attacks on the West, like the Statue of Liberty.
Devising new ways to indoctrinate the next generation of jihadis, Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is providing apps to teach children how to attack landmarks in the West, reported The Independent.
The apps are distributed through kiosks set up in territory controlled by the brutal terror group where children can read the latest issues of ISIS’ online magazine Rumiyah (a simpler version of their magazine Dabiq) and learn Arabic.
“[The app] is supposed to teach them Arabic. But the words they learn are related to violence and extremism such as tanks and grenades. The children are rewarded if they say they are prepared to carry out attacks on the West, the targets are places like the Statue of Liberty, Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower,” said Colonel John Dorrian, who is with the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS.
“We are obviously very concerned about what they are learning through these apps turning to reality. But at the same time we need to take care of these children when the time comes, untold damage has been done to them which needs to be undone,” Dorrian added.

DEATH OF A DIPLOMAT AND WORLD WAR III
What are the global implications after the assassination of Russia’s man in Ankara on December 19? Meira Svirsky reports.
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Tue, December 20, 2016

Scare mongers predicting World War III after a Turkish policeman assassinated the Russian ambassador to Ankara can relax. It won’t be happening.

Turkey and Russia have already both declared the killing – done in protest of Russia’s support of Syria’s brutal dictator Assad -- a “terrorist attack,” and Putin announced the unfortunate incident would not “undermine the improvement and normalization of Russian-Turkish relations,” which occurred last summer after Erdogan apologized for Turkey’s downing of a Russian jet on its way back from a bombing mission in Syria.

As a Tweet by Turkish columnist Mustafa Akyol succinctly stated, “No, this is not Sarajevo 1914,” a reference to the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, nephew of Emperor Franz Josef and heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, who was shot to death in Sarajevo, Bosnia -- an event said to have sparked World War I. “For Ankara and Moscow will not wage war. Quite the contrary, they may even get closer.”
Yet, while publicly Putin and Erdogan appear on the same page over the incident, it will not pass without consequences and concessions to Russia from Turkey.
Until now, Erdogan was toeing a fine line between his opposition to the Assad regime in Syria and his professed opposition to Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL). In actuality, Erdogan facilitated the ascent of ISIS by buying or at the very least allowing the smuggling of its contraband oil and granting the group’s fighters easy access to Syria through Turkish territory.
Notwithstanding the occasional and annoying terrorist attacks perpetrated by ISIS against Turkey, when the time came that Erdogan could no longer turn his back on Western powers and refuse to join the fight against ISIS, the Turkish president used the opportunity to bomb one of his prime nemeses, the Kurds (whose persistent agitation for human rights and autonomy are a continual thorn in the side of Erdogan’s dreams of a renewed Ottoman empire).
Russia’s backing of Assad has put Turkey in a difficult position.
What are the global implications after the assassination of Russia’s man in Ankara on December 19? Meira Svirsky reports.

BERLIN CHRISTMAS ATTACK – PART OF A LARGER PLAN
The attack in Berlin last night was a point in a trajectory of incitement by Islamist extremists against anything and anyone not Muslim.
The attack in Berlin last night, where a truck driven by a suspected Islamist terrorist plowed into a crowded Christmas market killing 12 and injuring at least 48, was a point in a trajectory of incitement by Islamist extremists against anything and anyone not Muslim.

Consider the following recent incidents across the world of late:

In Indonesia, considered to be a “moderate” Islamic country, a fatwa was just issued by the Indonesian Ulema Council prohibiting Muslims from wearing or using Christmas-themed clothing or decorations, saying, “Religious images and accessories are used intentionally to show the identity of a certain religion, and represent its tradition and rituals…[it is] a foreign culture with which we must not mingle.”
News reports explained the fatwa was primarily directed toward employees in shopping malls who often wear Santa hats, appealing to the nine percent of Indonesia’s population (21.2 million people) who are Christian.
Since the fatwa was issued, members of the extremist Islam Defenders Front escorted by police raided malls in East Java to check whether employees were abiding by the decree.
The fatwa prompted a warning by International Christian Concern, a human rights group, that the ruling could give license to extremists to attack non-Muslims and foster an “increasingly emboldened radical Islamic sub-group that is applying public pressure to adhere to conservative Islamic law.”
That not only has already happened, it is sanctioned and supported by the country’s police.
The raids follow protests last month in which more than one hundred thousand Muslims marched in the capital calling for the death penalty of the capital’s governor, a Christian accused of blasphemy.
In Greece, a Christian church in Crete was set on fire, before which the perpetrators wrote on the building’s wall “Allah is great.”

CHELSEA BOMBER SUSPECT MAKES FIRST APPEARANCE IN COURT
After his arrest, police recovered a journal by suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami containing praise for known terrorist groups.
Ahmad Khan Rahami, accused of planting and detonating bombs in New York and New Jersey, appeared in court for the first time Monday.
Rahami is suspected of detonating a bomb in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan last September, which injured more than 30 people (none seriously) as well as a bomb that exploded on the route of a Marine Corps charity race in Seaside Park, New Jersey. Due to a delay in the race, no one was injured.
A third unexploded bomb was found in Manhattan not far from the Chelsea bomb.
Rahami was hospitalized in critical condition after being shot multiple times in shootout with police outside a bar in Linden, NJ.
He previously entered a plea of not guilty via a video hookup from his hospital bed in Newark.
After the shootout, police officers recovered a journal containing Islamist rhetoric and praise for known terrorist groups and ideologies.
“I looked for guidance came Sheikh Anwar, Brother Adnani, Dawla. Said it clearly – Attack the kuffar (non-believer) in the back yard,” Rahami wrote, referencing American al-Qaeda ideologue Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed in a drone strike in 2011 and Islamic State spokesman Abu Muhammad al Adnani, who was killed in August. (Dawla is an honorific term for a ruler or senior statesman.)
Adnani issued frequent calls to Westerners to carry out terrorist attacks within their home countries. Rahami also wrote, “The sounds of bombs will be heard in the streets.”

ISIS REPORTEDLY INSTITUTES FGM IN KURDISH AREAS
After a law was passed in Kurdistan in 2011 making the barbaric practice illegal, the rate of FGM in the area fell by 60 percent. Now it's reportedly back.
Tue, December 13, 2016
Areas of Kurdistan under the control of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) are seeing an increasing and alarming rate of female genital mutilation (FGM), reported Al Sumaria TV.
Shirzad Mohammad, the head of a youth organization said that in the Kurdish areas, the rate of FGM was very high, but dropped dramatically after a law was passed by parliament outlawing the practice.
However, in the areas under ISIS control, the rate of FGM rate is very high because laws instituted by the terror group which mandate the cutting of women.
Dalshad Mohammad, a member of the Organization of Muslim Scholars, also noted that Islamic State jihadis have been instituting this “heinous crime against women.”
After a law was passed in Kurdistan in 2011 making the barbaric practice illegal, the rate of FGM in the area fell by 60 percent.
Mawlud Wirfa, an official with UNICEF in Iraq, said the goal is to put an end to the practice entirely. To this end, UNICEF is working with all official authorities and other organizations to stamp out misconceptions and completely stop the practice.

SAUDI ACTIVIST ARRESTED FOR GOING WITHOUT HIJAB
The 21 year old activist shared a picture of herself on Twitter without a hijab on in a mid-calf length dress
Tue, December 13, 2016
A Saudi activist who posted a picture of herself outside without a hijab has been arrested. Malak al-Shehri, 21, posted a picture of herself on Twitter without her government-mandated abaya (long cloak), instead wearing a jacket and a mid-calf length dress. The picture was taken in downtown Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.
Someone filed a complaint with the police and she was arrested on Monday.
“Police officers have detained a girl who had removed her abaya on al-Tahliya street, implementing a challenge she announced on social media several days ago,” police spokesman Colonel Fawaz al-Maiman told local newspaper Al-Sharq.
Conservative twitter users demanded her arrest and punishment with some going so far as to call for her death.
“Kill her and throw her corpse to the dogs,” Twitter user @ab_alshdadi wrote. “We want blood,” another user, @ilQil posted.
Other Twitter users praised her courage in the face of repression and death threats.
Saudi Arabia enforces strict modesty dress codes on women and a host of other restrictions routinely decried by activists as gender apartheid.

NUMBER OF UK CHILDREN TRAVELING FOR JIHAD DOUBLES IN 2016
50 young people were stopped from leaving the UK to join the fight in Syria and Iraq, more than double the previous year’s figure of 23.
Wed, December 14, 2016
Fifty young people were prevented from leaving the UK this year to join the fighting in the Middle East. That number is more than double the previous year’s 23.
The figures were revealed by The Sun, which submitted a freedom of information request to obtain them.
Neil Doyle, a terrorism expert quoted in the Daily Express, noted, “The courts may have saved the lives of these children by preventing them from being moved to perhaps the most dangerous place on Earth. At least two British children have featured in gruesome videos and the group is increasingly relying on child fighters. It is short of manpower due to a very high casualty rate which has seen 50,000 fighters killed so far."
Children from the UK who travelled to Syria and Iraq to join radical Islamist groups include:
Isa Dare, who appeared in a propaganda video for Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in which four prisoners were executed by an exploding car

IRANIAN PRESIDENT SAYS JIHAD IS ONLY OPTION FOR PALESTINIANS
Iran’s allegedly moderate President Hassan Rouhani has called on Palestinians to take up arms against Israel and wage holy war.
Wed, December 14, 2016
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said there was no alternative for Palestinians other than armed jihad. He made the remarks in a meeting with the leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a terrorist group funded by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Rouhani is widely touted as a moderate by Western media outlets, despite continuing repressive policies and financing terrorist groups.
“Today, the world public opinion is faced with this strong argument that the Zionist regime has never been after peace, and this argument and reasoning should be used to show that there is no way, but jihad and resistance for the Palestinians against the usurper regime,” he told Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah, the head of Islamic Jihad, in a meeting in Tehran.
Despite literally being at a meeting in which he himself was funding and encouraging international terrorism, Rouhani accused Israel of funding terrorism and sectarian violence in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and North Africa, according to Fars news agency.

For the first time you can read here the actual FBI documents showing the links between 22 radical Islamist villages in the U.S. and al-Qaeda. Mon, December 12, 2016
The Clarion Project has obtained newly-declassified FBI documents from 2003 revealing that the jihadist cult Jamaat ul-Fuqra, also known as Muslims of America (MOA), had ties with al-Qaeda in Pakistan. The group is best known for its network of about 22 Islamist compounds on American soil.
The disclosures come on the heels of the release of the Fuqra Files website, an authoritative database of information about the group.
The FBI reports show there was a counter-terrorism investigation into Jamaat ul-Fuqra / Muslims of America (MOA) in New York in 2003. One file has the heading, “American Islamic Radicals.” The reports point out, “Prior to assuming the name MOA, JUF has had a profound history of carrying out violent actions to include, arsons, bombings, shootings and assassinations.”

DRONED: CHARLIE HEBDO PLOTTER TAKEN OUT BY US
The strike sends a strong message of deterrence to anyone considering carrying out attacks: the U.S. will find and kill them. An ISIS militant believed to have been involved in planning the terrorist attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on January 7 2015 was killed in a US drone strike in Raqqa, Syria.
Boubaker el Hakim was killed last month, defense officials said in a statement on November 9. The attack on Charlie Hebdo saw gunmen murder 12 of Charlie Hebdo’s staff and wound 11 others. Although the Charlie Hebdo attackers Said and Cherif Kouachi claimed they were members of the terrorist group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), ISIS also claimed responsibility for the attack

WHAT IS JUSTICE? OHIO STATE STUDENTS PROTEST KILLING OF JIHADI
The protests were part of a larger gathering to eulogize people of color who have been killed by police since October.
Protests erupted at Ohio State University over the killing of terrorist Abdul Razak Ali Artan. Claiming he had reached a “boiling point” after becoming “sick and tired” of the treatment of Muslims, Artan injured 11 students when he drove his car over them and afterwards tried to stab them to death with a butcher knife.
The protests were part of a larger gathering organized by the OSU Coalition for Black Liberation meant to eulogize “people of color” killed by police since October, as reported by the student newspaper, The Lantern.
Artan’s name was added to that list.
As explained by Maryam Abidi, a fourth-year in women’s, gender and sexuality studies, “We broadened the scope of what today was supposed to be, to talk about the aftermath of what happened on the 28th.”

BOY KILLED FOR BEING GAY BUT NOT HIS LOVER - AN ISIS COMMANDER
ISIS theoretically has a zero-tolerance policy towards homosexuality unless it means the organization will lose out.
Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) punished a 15-year-old boy for being gay by throwing him to his death from the roof of a building in Deir al-Zour, Syria. However, his lover, a commander in ISIS was merely flogged and sent to the front fight against the enemy.
“We’ve seen increasing signs of ISIS hypocrisy in recent weeks,” said Clarion Project’s Editor-in-Chief David Harris.

PIG CARCASS DUMPED AT MOSQUE IN OKLAHOMA
For those truly concerned with extremist elements in the faith, civilization provides a plethora of moral tools to work towards positive change.
The carcass of a pig was dumped in the parking lot of a mosque in Lawton, Oklahoma, prompting police to investigate the incident as a hate crime. Although no suspects have been found as yet, a video surveillance camera showed a pick-up truck entering the parking lot of the mosque during the night. As the truck backs up, the pig’s carcass can be seen falling off the tailgate.
Ironically, the imam of the mosque, Hassan Ahmed, discovered the carcass on his way back from an interfaith event held with local Christians, Jews and Buddhists which focused on religious intolerance.

JIHADI CHILDREN RETURN TO EUROPE: 'PURER' THAN ADULT FIGHTERS
Intelligence and psychology experts reckon that it will take a generation to bring them back to normality.
The projected defeat of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in Syria may prove to be a Pyrrhic victory for Europe given that it will result in the return of combatants trained to carry out attacks on the home front.
An ancillary issue is the repatriation of children who either travelled to Syria alone or with their parents, or who were born there. They are a key component in Islamic State’s strategy to develop the next generation of jihadists.

WOMAN LEADER OF IRANIAN FEMALE MILITIA: GENDER EQUALITY ILLEGAL
The head of the women's Basij also opposes efforts to elect female parliamentarians as well as education to curb domestic violence. The woman who leads the female volunteers for the Iranian regime’s volunteer militia has spoken out against gender equality and efforts to increase the number of women in the parliament.
Minou Aslani, head of the Women’s Basij organization, also opposes activism to reign in domestic violence. This agenda, Aslani asserts, is against Iranian society and traditional family values.
“These activities are in fact against our laws and the judiciary should take action,” said Aslani, as quoted by the semi-official Mehr news agency. Participation by more women in the parliament, she added, will “distort” the character of Iranian women.
“This is a path that has resulted in the solitude of women in the West,” she said. “Unfortunately some people in this country are following the outdated Western example — it is against human nature.”

SCHOOLGIRLS IN NIGERIA KILL 56 IN SUICIDE BOMBINGS
Girls volunteer for such missions as a way to end their horrific lives under captivity, which include relentless hunger and sexual abuse. Two schoolgirls carried out simultaneous suicide bombings in the Nigerian town of Madagali. The attacks on a crowded market left at least 56 people killed and dozens wounded.
The attacks bore the marking of the Islamist terror organization Boko Haram, known for targeting civilians in northeast Nigeria as well as in neighboring Cameroon and Niger.
Although attacks by the group have been less frequent in recent months as the Nigerian army has been attempting a push back to its original stronghold in the enormous Sambia forest, this latest attack shows the group – which pledged its allegiance to Islamic State – is far from defeated.

AT LEAST 22 KILLED IN BOMB ATTACK ON COPTIC CATHEDRAL
At least 22 people were killed and 35 more injured in an explosion at St Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, only days after six were killed near the pyramids. An explosion at Cairo’s Coptic Cathedral killed at least 22 and injured 35 others. No group has yet taken responsibility for the attack.
St Mark’s Cathedral is the headquarters of the Coptic Church in Egypt. Pope Tawadros II, who leads the church, resides there. The explosion also hit St. Peter’s Church in the same complex.
Cairo’s security chief Khalid Abdel Aal inspected the scene, according to local media reports.
The explosion followed a bomb attack on Friday which killed six policemen near the pyramids at Giza. Three police officers and four civilians were also reportedly injured in the attack, which took place when a bomb placed in a bin exploded.
The Hasm movement, which is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, claimed responsibility for the attack.
Lter in the evening a bomb killed one civilian and injured three policemen in the Kafr El Sheikh governorate in the north of Egypt. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.

WHO WAS BEHIND THE DEADLY BOMBING IN TURKEY?
Erodgan would be well-advised to make peace with the Kurds but his ethnocentric Islamist ideology will most likely prevent that. Two bombs ripped through Istanbul December 10 killing at least 38 people and injuring 166. The first and most powerful bomb was detonated by remote control outside the Vodaphone Arena, the stadium of the top-division Besiktas soccer team, hours after a game finished.
The device appeared to be targeting police officers, as it exploded next to a police bus used to carry security personnel guarding the stadium. No fans were reported injured as they had previously left the area.
A second, smaller explosion occurred close to a half an hour later in a nearby park when a suicide bomber or possibly a car bomber detonated his charge.
Thirty of the dead were police officers, leading Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus to say, “The arrows point at the PKK (the Kurdish Worker’s Party). It is clearly a planned event. There will be an announcement once the investigations are over. We cannot say anything definite for now,” he said.
The attack comes two months after a similar strike outside a police station in Istanbul, which injured ten people. In July, Kurdish fighters were killed trying to storm a Turkish military base.

US FAILS TO VET 15,000 IMMIGRANTS DUE TO SECURITY ERROR
Before the Department of Homeland Security noticed the error, 175 immigrants were granted citizenship, the government admitted.
Thu, December 8, 2016
Fifteen-thousand applications for immigration were not vetted by the FBI’s name-check database due to an error by Homeland Security, The Washington Times reported.
Before the security error was noticed, 175 immigrants were granted citizenship, the government admitted.
Since the error was discovered, all naturalization ceremonies have been halted and officers working for the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services have been banned from approving new citizenship applications.
The error, caused by a computer code malfunction, was made public by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, who said the problem was disclosed in an internal email to which he was privy
Earlier this year, citizenship was accidentally given to hundreds of criminals because Homeland Security had only checked their fingerprints through their electronic database and not with the thousands of fingerprints that are to date only recorded on paper.

EXCLUSIVE: INTERVIEW WITH KURDISH PKK COFOUNDER
'Kurds have been subjected to persecution in order to make them forcefully embrace the Turkish, Arab and Iranian ethnic identities.'
BY ZACH HUFF Thu, December 8, 2016
Riza Altun is a cofounder of the Kurdish PKK, and serves as PKK’s head of foreign relations and on the KCK executive council.

PKK (Partiya Karkerên Kurdistanê‎ - Kurdistan Workers’ Party) is a left-wing, Kurdish organization based in Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan. Beginning 1984, the PKK waged an armed struggle against the Turkey for the right to self-determination for the Kurds in Turkey, who comprise between 18% and 25% of the population and have been persecuted for decades.
In 2013, the PKK declared a ceasefire and began withdrawing its fighters to the Kurdistan Region of northern Syria. However, in July 2015, the PKK cancelled the ceasefire after the Turkish government infractions. One month later, they accepted a ceasefire with Turkey with guarantees from the U.S.
Although designated as a Foreign Terror Organization by the U.S. in 1997, the crucial role of the PKK and their affiliated YPG* forces against ISIS is one of the many ironic dilemmas for Western powers engaged in the Syrian conflict.
The following is Mr. Altun’s interview with Clarion Project’s Kurdish Affairs Analyst Zach D. Huff:

SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER COVERS UP ANTI-WHITE HATE CRIME
The SPLC branded counter-Islamist orgs. like Clarion Project as hate groups while covering up genuine hatred to support their political agenda.BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Tue, December 6, 2016
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has been caught red-handed covering up evidence of anti-white hate being peddled in American schools, as reported in a searing expose by journalist Paul Sperry for the New York Post. The group, which styles itself an anti-hate group, recently released a report entitled “The Trump Effect: The Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election on Our Nation’s Schools” which collated the findings of a survey of some 10,000 educators of K-12 across the country.

UK MUSLIMS NOT INTEGRATING: NEW REPORT
A new report concludes that many UK Muslims are not integrating into British society causing concern for increased likelihood of radicalization.
BY CODI ROBERTSON Thu, December 8, 2016
A new British government-commissioned report has determined that despite a long and sustained effort by the British government to boost social integration of immigrants, there is a great degree of social segregation.
And while this is a blow to the strong desire for social cohesion and a strong British identity amongst its people, it also may have consequences in the security realm.
The head of the year-long study, integration tzar, Dame Louise Casey, criticised the government’s mediocre efforts. “The problem has not been a lack of knowledge but a failure of collective, consistent and persistent will to do something about it or give it the priority it deserves at both a national and local level,” Casey stated.

HORROR HYDRA: RECENT ISIS ATROCITIES IN IRAQ AND SYRIA
Although ISIS is taking a beating from coalition forces, the world’s premiere terror organization has still been able to wreak havoc.
Tue, December 6, 2016
Although Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) is taking a beating from coalition forces in Iraq and Assad’s army in Syria, the world’s premier terror organization has still been able to function, wreaking havoc in its wake. Here are some of the latest exploits of the brutal group:
1) Special ops police from Italy are helping a father locate his six-year-old son who was taken by his mother to Syria and forced to join ISIS. The couple, both originally from Albania, were living near Milan when the mother abducted the son, changed his name to Yussuf, circumcised him and forced him to train in “body-to-body” combat so that he could become a “future fighter” for ISIS.

TECH GIANTS TEAM UP AGAINST INCITEMENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Facebook, Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube will launch a shared database to track and remove terrorist images and videos more easily.
Thu, December 8, 2016
Facebook Microsoft, Twitter and YouTube have joined forces to tackle terrorist incitement on social media, reported USA Today. The companies will create a database of terrorist content which they say will enable them to remove radical content more swiftly when it appears on their platforms.
“Our companies will begin sharing hashes of the most extreme and egregious terrorist images and videos we have removed from our services – content most likely to violate all of our respective companies’ content policies,” the four companies said in a joint statement.
“By sharing this information with each other, we may use the shared hashes to help identify potential terrorist content on our respective hosted consumer platforms. We hope this collaboration will lead to greater efficiency as we continue to enforce our policies to help curb the pressing global issue of terrorist content online.” Read the full statement about countering terrorist incitement on social media here.

TRUMP SEC OF DEFENSE PICK: ENEMY OF ISLAMISM AND IRAN
Marine Corps General James Mattis is deserving of positive attention for his emphasis on confronting political Islam and the Iranian regime.
BY RYAN MAURO Sun, December 4, 2016
President-Elect Trump has chosen Marine Corps General James “Mad Dog” Mattis for secretary of defense, eliciting widespread enthusiasm focusing on his status as the “most revered Marine in a generation” and factory of quotable quotes.
Deserving of more positive attention is his emphasis on confronting Political Islam and the Iranian regime.
General Mattis has advocated for significant changes in both the military fight against the specific Islamist terrorist groups like ISIS and Al-Qaeda, as well as the fight against the Islamist ideology that births them. Although ISIS’ caliphate is on the decline, General Mattis doesn’t settle for an encouraging positive trend. He wants to win quickly and decisively, yet humanely with care for civilians.
In August, he said the strategy still is “unguided by a sustained policy or sound strategy [and is] replete with half measures.”
Mattis was one of the chief architects of the counter-insurgency campaign that turned Iraq around so rapidly that it even surprises many of its supporters.

Take a Look Inside the Shattered Churches of Iraq BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Mon, December 5, 2016
As the Iraqi army liberates territory from Islamic State jihadists they are uncovering the damage done to Iraq’s ancient Christian heritage. The Islamic State has devastated the ancient heritage of Iraq’s Christians. Many churches, some hundreds of years old, were damaged or even destroyed, along with earlier archaeological treasures such as palaces belonging to the Kings of ancient Assyria.
Here is just a snapshot of ISIS crimes against Iraq’s Christian community.

A portrait of Jesus Christ is seen inside the heavily damaged Church of the Immaculate Conception in the Christian town of Qaraqosh, also known as Hamdaniya, some 20 miles east of Mosul, on December 4, 2016, one month after Iraqi forces recaptured it from Islamic State (IS) group jihadists.

A video allegedly showing a Christian boy being beaten by an angry mob after he drank from a water fountain in a mosque has been circulated in Pakistan, according to The Express Tribune. The video purportedly showed the boy screaming in pain as he was beaten with sticks and shoes by worshippers who were incensed that a Christian should have drunk water in “their” mosque.
Christians in Pakistan face serious discrimination. Currently, Christian woman Asia Bibi is on death row awaiting the final conclusion of her widely publicized blasphemy case. She was accused of blasphemy after drinking water from a well and being accused of contaminating it by a Muslim woman.

At least 5,000 people across 27 refugee camps in the northern Nigerian state of Borno have the auto-immune virus HIV. Most of these are women who were rescued from or escaped Boko Haram captivity and were raped by the jihadist militia.
“We have heard of many supporting non-governmental organisations in Borno but none of them has approached us to offer assistance to the IDPs with the virus,” Hassan Mustapha, the Coordinator on HIV/AIDS told media. “The IDPs [Internally Displaced Persons] with such ailment are constantly challenged; they do not go out to access drugs. Most of them are shy while some are afraid to be identified by others as carriers.”
