US STEPS UP SECURITY FOR FLIGHTS FROM FOREIGN AIRPORTS
The extra security comes after the crash of the Russian plane in the Sinai, which the U.S. believes was from an ISIS bomb planted on the plane
The United States has instituted “interim, precautionary enhancements” to security in flights to America from a number of foreign airports. The move comes in light of the crash of the Russian airliner in the Sinai, an incident that senior U.S. intelligence officials believe was due to a bomb planted on the plane by an Islamic State affiliate in the region.
Although the Department of Home Security declined to discuss the full details of the enhancements, they include expanded screening of luggage and security assistance to local airports.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told CNN that officials were taking "precautionary interim steps" to increase security on international flights into the United States during the investigation of the air disaster.
"ISIL [ISIS/Islamic State] is out there now active in a lot of different areas and, while this investigation is pending and because we have this group claiming responsibility, we believe it's significant to do these things on an interim basis," Johnson told CNN.

MICHELLE OBAMA SPEAKS TO TERROR-LINKED GROUP IN QATAR
The group is the "moderate" Islamist Qatar Foundation, an ideological factory for terrorism, anti-Semitism, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
First Lady Michelle Obama gave a strong speech on women's rights in the Middle East, but the location of that speech is reflective of the fundamental mistakes the U.S. is making in separating friend from foe. The host was the "moderate" Islamist Qatar Foundation that is an ideological factory for terrorism, anti-Semitism, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Qatar Foundation (QF) press release says that First Lady Obama visited the organization before her speech and met with the Qatari First Lady to discuss girls' education. Obama then gave her address at the   QF's World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE).

Iran's Attempt to Destabilize Bahrain Foiled–But How Long?
This latest assault is part of the Iranian regime's targeting Bahrain for years. Iran sees in Bahrain an easy target with strategic ramifications.
The pro-U.S. government of Bahrain has announced the arrests of 47 terrorists linked to Iran who were about to launch a wave of attacks. The Iranian regime sees the Gulf monarchy as an irresistibly tempting target whose destabilization is part of both its strategy and prophecy.
The Bahraini government says the suspects were found with arms and explosives and some had received terrorist training in Iran. A lab and factory for making bombs were also found.

Iranian Legislature Votes to Continue 'Death to America!'
At the same time, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blames America for the problems of the Middle East.
Spontaneous' chants of "Death to America!" during a speech by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
Iranian legislators voted Tuesday to continue using the ubiquitous slogan, “Death to America!” despite the recent nuclear negotiations.
As reported by the AFP, 192 Iranian lawmakers out of the 290-seat parliament released a statement reading, “The martyr-nurturing nation of Iran is not at all prepared to abandon the slogan of ‘Death to America’ under the pretext of a nuclear agreement.”
The statement was published by the state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
The slogan is commonly chanted at Friday prayers in the country’s mosques and at government-organized protests.
“The statement was issued two days before Iran’s commemoration of the start of the November 4, 1979 seizure of the US embassy in Tehran by radical Islamic students that led to a 444-day hostage crisis and a break in diplomatic relations between the two countries lasting up to the present day," AFP noted.
Further, on Sunday, speaking to a group of Iranian diplomats, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei blamed America for the problems of the Middle East, saying, “Contrary to certain people’s belief, the U.S. is the cause of the major portion of regional problems and is not part of the solution to the problems.”
Khamenei denied reports the nuclear deal signaled a change in Iran’s foreign policy and an openness to engage with the West. “The Islamic Republic of Iran’s foreign policy has acted as impenetrable rock against the domineering nature of hegemonic powers, especially the U.S., in the region,” Khamenei declared, adding that Iran’s foreign policy was “based on Islam and stems from the aspirations and goals of the [Islamic] revolution.”

CRUZ PROPOSES BILL TO LABEL BROTHERHOOD, CAIR AS TERROR ORGS.
'We have to stop pretending that the Brotherhood are not responsible for the terrorism they advocate and finance,' said Cruz.
CAIR's Founder and Executive Director Nihad Awad (R); National Communications Director and Spokesperson Ibrahim Hooper (L). Awad was present at the 1993 secret meeting of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee in Philadelphia that was wiretapped by the FBI. Participants of the meeting discussed how to support Hamas and, in the words of U.S. District Court Judge Solis “goals, strategies and American perceptions of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
In what may be a seminal moment in the fight against radical Islam, presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has introduced legislation to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. The impressively-detailed bill identifies three Brotherhood entities in the U.S. including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

The Muslim Brotherhood is not currently banned in the U.S. because it is not listed as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. Remarkably, its Palestinian wing—Hamas—is designated, but the group a whole is allowed to operate in the U.S. You can read my thorough rebuttal of the Brotherhood's purported "non-violence" policy here.

ISLAMIC STATE RELEASES GRUESOME NEW REVENGE VIDEO
After a raid by Kurdish-U.S. forces freed 70 Iraqi hostages facing execution, ISIS takes wild revenge on Kurdish prisoners and threatens Obama
The Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) has released a slick execution video in revenge for the raid by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters and U.S. special forces that freed 70 Iraqi hostages who were in imminent danger of being killed. Twenty Islamic State terrorists were killed in the raid.
The video (WATCH BELOW) features an Islamic State jihadi, his face swathed in a black balaclava, threatening U.S. President Barack Obama and speaking in fluent, American-accented English.

13 PERCENT OF SYRIAN REFUGEES SUPPORT ISIS: POLL
The data from the poll should raise questions about the risks posed by the acceptance of Syrian refugees into the United States.
A poll published in November 2014 by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies found that 13% of Syrian refugees have positive feelings towards the Islamic State terrorist group. The data should raise questions about the risks posed by the acceptance of Syrian refugees into the United States.
The poll surveyed 900 Syrian refugees equally split between Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. The think-tank found that 4% expressed a positive opinion of the Islamic State (ISIS) and another 9% expressed a "somewhat positive" opinion of the terrorist group. Another 10% only view the group negatively "to some extent."
The responses to that question are similar to an inquiry to the Syrian refugees about whether they view ISIS to be a direct threat to their home country. About 80% responded affirmatively and 15% negatively, with 5% said they don't know or refused to answer.

Iranian-American Businessman Arrested in Tehran
The move came as Khamenei apparently decided to change the conditions of the nuclear pact made between Iran and world powers.
An Iranian-American businessman has been imprisoned in Tehran after being arrested by Revolutionary Guards Forces who answer to Supreme Leader Ali Kahamenei and not the government.
The businessman is Siamak Namazi, who is based in Dubai and is in his early 40s. Namazi was in Tehran visiting friends and family.
The arrest comes as Khamenei – with support from Iran’s hardliners -- has apparently decided to change the conditions of the nuclear pact made between Iran and the world powers. The fact that Namazi was arrested by the Revolutionary Guards is viewed as a direct response to President Hasan Rouhani, who supports the deal due to its prospects to infuse the Iranian economy with much needed cash.

ASSAD SUPPORTERS LOCKED IN CAGES, USED AS HUMAN SHIELDS
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the victims were military officers and their families who had been captured by rebels in the area.
Syrian rebels have been locking supporters of embattled Syrian President Bashir al-Assad in cages and bringing them to areas being bombed by Assad’s forces. The rebels are placing the cages in civilian areas to use as human shields against heavy bombardment by government planes.
The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the people were military officers and their families who had been captured by rebels in the area. The rebels also want to make a statement that  whatever happens to Syrian civilians will also happen to Assad’s supporters.

ISIS Blows Up Prisoners Tied to Palmyra Columns
ISIS has blown up many of Palmyra's famous ruins and used others as a backdrop to horrific execution videos. This was a combination.
Tetrapylon columns in Palmyra (Photo: Wiki Media Commons)
The Islamic State executed three prisoners in Palmyra by tying them to ancient columns and blowing them up. News of the killings came from the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdel Rahman.

In an unusual break with the Islamic State’s gruesome protocol, no pictures or videos of the executions were released. Residents of the neighboring modern city were not summoned to witness the killings as in the past and there is no information as to the identity of the prisoners. A local activist reported, “ISIS has prevented anyone from heading to the site.”

Since the Islamic State conquered the ancient city last May, it has wreaked destruction on some of the world’s most ancient treasures.

Palmyra, a designated UNESCO world heritage site was home to some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the world, mixed with Greek and Persian architectural styles.  ISIS has blown up many of the famous ruins and used others as a backdrop to horrific execution videos.

Palmyra’s famed archaeologist Khaled al-Asaad, 82, was brutally murdered by the terrorist organization in August for refusing to give Islamic State militants information as to where the city’s most valuable artifacts could be found. ISIS uses money gleaned from selling ancient artifacts to partially fund their militias.

Al-Assad, who was said to have been familiar with every stone in Palmyra, was publicly beheaded after which his body was chopped into pieces. He had refused to leave his beloved city when ISIS took over.

HOOKWINKED: KHAMENEI’S CONDITIONS GUT NUCLEAR DEAL
Contrary to the media’s announcement that the Ayatollah approved the nuclear deal, Khamenei set 9 conditions that basically gut the entire deal.
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Tue, October 27, 2015
Contrary to the international media’s announcement that Iran’s Supreme Leader had finally approved the nuclear agreement between Iran and the world’s powers, Ali Khamenei has outlined nine conditions to his acceptance that basically change the entire agreement.

The conditions were detailed in a letter written by Kahmenei to Iranian President Hasan Rouhani and translated to English and published by the official Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting authority.

An analysis of the letter provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute  (MEMRI) shows, “The set of conditions laid out by Khamenei creates a situation in which not only does the Iranian side refrain from approving the [agreement], but, with nearly every point, creates a separate obstacle, such that executing the agreement is not possible.”

MEMRI also notes that “in his introduction to the new conditions, Khamenei attacks the U.S. and President Obama with great hostility, and calls for Obama to be prosecuted by international judiciary institutions.”

The conditions involve a number of stall tactics regarding Iran’s fulfillment of its obligations according to the agreement. For example, Khamenei is now demanding the timeframe for dismantling certain functions at its Arak reactor be changed until all sanctions are lifted.

In addition, instead of shipping out enriched uranium and receiving in exchange raw uranium as stipulated by the deal, Iran is now demanding receipt of low-level enriched uranium in its place.

With regards to sanctions, the agreement calls for the sanctions to be merely lifted (meaning, there is the possibility of snap back in the face of Iranian violations). Khamenei is demanding all sanctions be permanently cancelled. In addition, he says no new sanctions may be imposed on the Islamic Republic (even if Iran engages in terrorism or human rights violations). If new sanctions are imposed, Iran would consider the agreement null and void.

Khamenei’s announcement of the nine conditions follows the Islamic Republic’s audacious testing of a new, long-range, surface-to-surface ballistic missile, a weapon whose sole purpose is to deliver a nuclear weapon. Yet, according to the agreement, “Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons.”

Judging from the reaction to this violation of the United States -- who instructed its U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power to “prepare a report” for the Security Council – the United States has chosen to ignore this blatant violation. Europe, who already sees its coffers being filled from sanctions relief, had a similar yawn about the missile test.

Clearly, America and the rest of the P5+1 world powers who were tasked to make an agreement with Iran -- with little regard to the circumstances -- have decided to ignore Khamenei’s machinations and, judging from the lack of international reaction to them, act as if they are nonexistent.

It is a sad commentary for the West that they have chosen to back down instead of confronting one of the world’s worst state sponsors of terrorism and violators of human rights. History will show for us – and our children – what the consequences of such an enormous capitulation will be.

ISLAMIC STATE SENDS HIT SQUADS TO TARGET CHRISTIAN REFUGEES
ISIS is sending its jihadis into Syrian refugee camps to kill Christians. Jihadis are also kidnapping and selling Christian girls into sex slavery.
The strategy is part of a larger commitment to wipe out Christianity, according to a former Islamic State jihadi, who was sent to a refugee camp but changed his mind about his mission. 
Witnesses to the murders are afraid to speak out for fear they will be targeted next.
One aid worker, quoted by the Sunday Express, said, "They're like a mafia. People are even killed inside the camps, and the refugees are afraid to say if they saw somebody get killed. If you ask them, they'll say, 'I don't know, I was asleep'."

ISLAMIC STATE CRUSHES PRISONER UNDER TANK IN HORRIFIC NEW VIDEO
Quoting the quranic 'eye-for-an-eye' verse, ISIS drives a tank over a former Syrian soldier and proudly displays his remains before the camera.
Despite claiming it would not release any more execution videos, the Islamic State has upped the ante with a new clip showing a tank crushing an orange-clad Syrian prisoner.
ISIS has gained notoriety with its grizzly films such as the extremely graphic burning alive of four bound prisoners in August 2015.
The latest film shows an Islamic State member explaining why the young man is about to be executed before showing the execution in close-up detail.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights received a copy of the video:

FBI: VIRTUALLY NO DATABASE EXISTS FOR SYRIANS ENTERING US
'It’s a disaster of biblical proportions,' says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, regarding the wide open opportunity for ISIS to attack the West
Virtually no database of information exists to screen Syrian refugees coming into the United States, according to the FBI Director James Comey.
The statements were made by Comey while testifying to the House Judiciary Committee about the security risks involved in taking in Syrian refugees.
Following the Iraq war, refugees were screened against a database of fingerprints garnered from IED’s  (Improvised Explosive Devices). However today, Comey said, “The only thing we can query is information that we have. So, if we have no information on someone, they’ve never crossed our radar screen, they’ve never been a ripple in the pond, there will be no record of them there and so it will be challenging.”
The FBI will base its assessment on some fingerprints and a “variety of intelligence sources that may help us understand who these people are,” Comey said, while acknowledging that, “We had a whole lot more information about Iraq because our soldiers had been there and had run into people and collected information.”

UK GOV'T TO PROBE SHARIA COUNCILS 'PARALLEL' LEGAL SYSTEM
Evidence has emerged that sharia is 'misused and applied in a way which is incompatible with the law,' and is discriminating against women.
The UK government has finally agreed to investigate how sharia councils in Britain represent a parallel legal system, one that particularly discriminates against women and fails to protect them from violent husbands.
Baroness Cox, a member of the House of Lords, has been a leading voice over the years speaking out against the dangers of sharia law. Friday, she led a debate in parliament about quasi-legal systems in Britain, such as sharia councils.

SWISS CHARGE FOUR IRAQIS IN ISLAMIC STATE TERROR CELL
Swiss authorities have charged an Islamic State terror cell with smuggling Swiss nationals to Syria and Iraq and plotting to carry out terrorist attacks.
Mon, October 19, 2015
Four men have been charged in Switzerland with supporting the Islamic State and preparing a terrorist attack

The four Iraqi nationals, aged between 29 and 34, are suspected of being an Islamic State terror cell.
Swiss authorities are working in cooperation with the U.S. on the case as per a 2006 treaty which mandates joint investigations in terrorism cases. They have also cooperated with other European security services.
Three Iraqis were arrested in March/April 2014 after telephone calls were intercepted by a Western agent who passed the information on to Swiss police.
The group is alleged to have helped around 40 Swiss jihadis travel to Syria and Iraq and attempted to purchase poisonous gas and explosives to mount terror attacks.

They “aided and abetted smuggling further IS followers to Europe, assumed coordination tasks, disseminated propaganda for the actions of the terrorist organisation, gave instructions and also provided operative advice amongst other things” according a statement by the Swiss Office of the Attorney General.

A fourth man was arrested in July 2015, “who had travelled to Syria to hand over radio equipment to IS.”

MEDIA REPORTAGE SERVES TO SUPPORT PALESTINIAN TERRORISM
Wars are not fought exclusively on the battlefield. They are fought and supported by ideas and ideology.
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Mon, October 19, 2015
Wars are not fought exclusively on the battlefield. They are fought and supported through ideology – ideas that flow through society originating from politicians to professors, from powerful interest group to grassroots activists.  

But in today’s age, none of these ideas has a chance of competing in our fast-paced marketplace for attention except the ones chosen to be significant by the most important arbiters of the battlefield: the media.
In theory, journalists report the “facts,” roughly recognized as the compilation of the actual happenings of any given event. Subjective distillation is, of course, always a factor, as all journalists are forced by necessity into choosing the most salient points and leaving out what they deem insignificant details.
But to consciously choose to distort the facts or skew the facts in a way that distorts them takes the writer out of the realm of journalism and into that of propaganda. When propaganda bandied about as journalism is used to support terrorists, journalists become the terrorists' “willing executioners” – complicit in bloodshed and murder.
The current terrorist onslaught in Israel has seen some of the worst reportage by the world’s conventional media outlets. Over the past three weeks, Israelis have faced murderous Islamists intent on killing them through a variety of means from knifing, shooting or running them over with vehicles. In the course of these attacks, most of the terrorists have been killed -- by police, soldiers or armed citizens defending themselves.
Yet, the headlines ring out through world declaring
(from the Independent):
(from NPR, with a full-size picture of a relative crying over and kissing the body of a dead terorist):
(from USA Today):
(and from the Irish Independent, simply):
When Palestinians set the Tomb of the Patriarch Joseph, a revered Jewish holy site, ablaze on Saturday night, CNN reported:

CNN later updated to headline to
Another recent article on CNN actually writes a dual report of the news of the day under the headline:
The dual report was introduced with the following subhead:

Never mind that Palestinian Authority sources, as spearheaded by Mahmoud Abbas, have a history of lying. What CNN was calling “incidents” happened to be three stabbings and two attempted stabbings of Israelis by Palestinians. One can only imagine the same dual reporting of the West’s battle against ISIS -- “incidents” (let's say, beheadings and stonings of civilians) reported from both the West’s perspective and that of ISIS.
For journalists, the Internet has made fact-checking remarkably easy, however, the Internet's advent in the world of news has also been a Catch -22. News must now compete with social media, which can provide up-to-the-minute, first-hand reports. Decreasing revenues combined with rolling deadlines means there are fewer resources available with more pressure to get the story out.

Yet, the reportage of the current terror war against Israel goes beyond all fair journalist standards and excuses. As such, media complicity in terror is another battle all fair-minded people need to fight.

U.S. CONDEMNS ISLAMISTS GLOBALLY FOR RELIGIOUS RESTRICTIONS
The State Department International Religious Freedom Report slams Pakistan & other countries for failing to protect religious minorities.
Sun, October 18, 2015
The US has slammed Pakistan for allowing Islamists to attack religious minorities with impunity in its just published International Religious Freedom Report for 2014.


Pakistan “failed to protect members of majority and minority religious groups.” The report attacked “the government’s general failure to investigate, arrest, or prosecute those responsible for religious freedom abuses” which “promoted an environment of impunity.” Blasphemy laws were also used to persecute minorities such as the Ahmadiyya Muslim community.


The report also blasted the Nigerian government for having “failed to investigate, prosecute, and punish perpetrators of violence or other abuses of religious freedom” and in many cases soldiers deserted their posts rather than fight Boko Haram.


It also decried international non-state actors and terrorist groups which “have set their sights on destroying religious diversity.”


The report “attempts to give voice to those oppressed people and to document when and where the universal human right to religious freedom was violated.”


This year’s report focuses in a large part on the actions of groups such as ISIS in the Middle East who have perpetrated numerous human rights abuses against minority religious groups, in particular, Christians.


“ISIL sought to elimina­­­­­te members of any group it assessed as deviating from ISIL’s own violent and destructive interpretation of Islam” the report states. “It has forcibly displaced hundreds of thousands of people, conducted mass executions, and kidnapped, sold, enslaved, raped and/or forcibly converted thousands of women and children—all on the grounds that these people stand in opposition to ISIL’s religious dogma.”


Beyond the Islamic State the report listed a litany of abuses in the name of Islamism worldwide.


·         Jabhat al-Nusra: Al-Qaeda’s affiliate in the Syrian Civil War carried out “targeted executions of religious leaders including seven Druze clerics in Dara province and Jesuit priest Frans van der Lugt.”
Boko Haram: The Islamist group in Nigeria “deliberately targeted Christians, as well as Muslims who spoke out against or opposed their radical ideology.” The report did not note that Boko Haram pledged allegiance to the Islamic State and is now styling itself ‘The Islamic State in West Africa.’ Boko Haram “killed more people in 2014 than the previous five years of the conflict combined.”
Shiite Militias: Iranian backed Shiite militias in Iraq persecuted Sunni Muslims, carrying out “abductions, execution-style killings, torture, and threats, as well as destruction of homes and businesses."
Pakistani Taliban: Tehrik e-Taliban (TTP) threatened Ismaili Muslims and Kalash with death. The report noted “sectarian, violent extremist, and terrorist groups attacked houses of worship, religious gatherings, and religious leaders, causing hundreds of deaths during the year.”
Lashkar i Jhangvi: Killed 24 Hazara Shiite pilgrims in a suicide bombing in Pakistani Balochistan last January.
The report also recorded a rise an anti-Semitic attacks in Europe, most notably the killing of four people in a Jewish Museum in Belgium by an Islamic State gunman who had been radicalized in prison.


Religiously motivated violence against Muslims was on the rise in Burma, where the Rohingya Muslim community are not recognized as citizens, and Sri Lanka, where hardline Buddhists rioted against both Muslims and Christians over the year.


The full report is available on the US State Department website.

Mon, October 19, 2015
Parents will be able to have the passports of their teenage children canceled if they are at risk of joining the Islamic State or other Islamist terrorist groups.


The measure is part of new “Counter-Extremism Strategy” being announced by David Cameron today.


Other steps include:


Preventing radical preachers from posting materials online.
Barring anyone convicted of terrorist or extremist activity from working with children or other vulnerable people.
The announcement comes a day after a £5 million ($7.7 m) fund was established to provide “credible alternative narratives to the dangerous views propagated by extremists.”


The money will go to fund a “national coalition” against radicalization, formed from local initiatives, charities and a Muslim newspaper putting out an anti-extremist message.


Cameron first announced his anti-extremism strategy in a speech in June, when he pledged to fight both violent and non-violent extremism and to completely overhaul the government’s approach to de-radicalization.  


In that speech, he became the first Western leader to pinpoint the ideology of Islamist extremism as the root cause of terrorism, distinct from, but related to, the religion of Islam.




The British counter-extremism think tank the Quilliam Foundation, staffed primarily by former Islamist extremists who now challenge their former ideologies, advised the government on its new more direct policy.



Approximately 700 British nationals have travelled to Syria or Iraq to fight for extremist groups such as the Islamic State.

ISLAMIST UK TEACHERS TELL PUPILS: 'WIVES CAN'T REFUSE SEX'
http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/uk-teachers-said-have-told-pupils-wives-cant-say-no-sex
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Thu, October 15, 2015
The latest revelations about the 'Trojan Horse Plot' in which Islamists took over British schools should prompt greater vigilance in future
A young Muslim girl in the UK. (Photo: Reuters)
Teachers at a state-run school in England distributed Islamist material to students saying that a wife was not permitted to refuse sex to her husband, according to evidence presented to a disciplinary committee.

The allegations are part of a disciplinary investigation into the ‘Trojan Horse Plot’ which rocked the English education system last year. It emerged that a cadre of hardline Islamists had infiltrated several state run schools in Birmingham with the explicit intention of imposing an Islamist agenda onto pupils and teaching them hardline interpretations of Islam.

Some 25 schools in Birmingham and others in cities around the country were investigated as being part of the conspiracy.

These latest allegations are levelled two teachers at Park View School in Birmingham, a school at the center of the scandal.

A teacher, identified only as ‘Witness A’ told the disciplinary panel about a handout a colleague had confiscated during a sexual education lessons which she believed had been used in teaching.

“Although I cannot remember the exact words I recall that the handout included phrases stating that a woman could not refuse her husband in marriage and that included that she could not say no to her husband having sex with her” she said in her witness statement.

“The handout included quotes from the Qur’an, I recall that the wording was very strong and the best way I can describe it now is that it was along the lines of ‘hell, fire and damnation’ for any woman who said no to her husband including in matters of sexual intercourse.”

After the handout was discovered the school held an emergency assembly to teach students about British law and consent.

Witness A also told the panel that while she was in charge of teaching sexual education, Akeel Ahmed and Inamulhaq Anwar had refused to teach boys about condom use “because within Islam you only have sex with your wife as a good Muslim that is what you do.”

It was also alleged that school prefects had been formed into 'morality squads' and ordered to monitor and report to staff romantic relationships between pupils, who then punished pupils. 

The hearings will continue, with more scheduled for next week.

At the time the scandal first broke, those accused of being part of the conspiracy carried out a strategy of denial.

Yet last July a government investigation lead by former counter-terrorism head Peter Clarke concluded:

“There has been co-ordinated, deliberate and sustained action, carried out by a number of associated individuals, to introduce an intolerant and aggressive Islamic ethos into a few schools in Birmingham. This has been achieved by gaining influence on the governing bodies, installing sympathetic headteachers or senior members of staff, appointing like-minded people to key positions, and seeking to remove headteachers they do not feel to be sufficiently compliant."

The report found that education authorities and Birmingham city council had been slow to act due to fears of being perceived as "islamophobic" or "racist". Similar fears prevented authorities from acting in the Rotherham sexual abuse scandal, also in England, in which at least 1,400 girls were molested over a ten year period.

Now the full facts about the extent of the Trojan Horse plot are coming out, it is to be hoped that authorities will be more vigilant in ensuring that state run schools remaind free from Islamist influences.

ISIS Cuts Off Ears of Citizens of Mosul for Cursing Islamic State
The group also declared that if a non-Muslim girl is raped by 10 ISIS jihadis, she automatically becomes Muslim.
Sun, October 11, 2015
The Islamic State continues to perpetrate some of the world’s worst current horrors. Kurdish media reports that the brutal Islamist organization cut the ears off of 42 citizens of Mosul, Iraq after they insulted the Islamic State.

Media spokesperson of the Kurdish Democratic Party Saeed Mamouzeeni said, “The act of cutting off the ears of these civilians was done after the sharia court of the organization accused them of cursing the name of the Islamic State.”
In other news about the Islamic State, a 22-year-old girl who was taken captive and later sold into slavery when the Islamic State stormed her village Sinjar, said that her Islamic State tormentor showed her a letter from the group’s higher command that declared that if a woman is raped 10 times by jihadis, she becomes Muslim.
She related how she was raped by an Islamic State fighter and then by 11 of his friends. Speaking to CNN, she said, "He showed me a letter and said, 'This shows any captured women will become Muslim if 10 ISIS fighters rape her.' There was a flag of ISIS and a picture of Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi [on the letter]."

YEMEN'S JEWS TOLD: CONVERT TO ISLAM OR GET OUT
According to the ultimatum, if the Jews do not comply, the Yemeni government has indicated that it would “not be able to protect” them.
Mon, October 12, 2015
Jews in Yemen have been given a choice: convert or leave the country.
The ultimatum was made public by the Israeli Deputy Minister of Regional Cooperation Ayoob Kara. The information was passed to Kara through a Yemenite Jew who escaped the country by posing as a Muslim.
Kara related that the man travelled first to Saudi Arabia and then to Jordan before he finally reached Israel. Kara, who is known for his efforts to aid persecuted minorities in Muslim-majority countries, is himself Druze and a member of the Israeli parliament. He has contacts across the Arab world and oftentimes appears on Arab media.
According to the information he received, Kara said that if the Jews did not comply, the Yemeni government has indicated that it would “not be able to protect” them.

IRAN AGREEMENT CURRENTLY IN VIOLATION OF EXISTING US LAW
Senior US officials say conditions of the deal violate the 'Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act,' which Obama signed into law.
Sun, October 11, 2015
A key passage in the nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers violates an existing America law – a law signed by U.S. President Barack Obama in 2012. This means that if the agreement is currently implemented, the U.S. will be in violation of its own federal law.
The revelation was made public by Fox News, quoting senior U.S. officials involved in the implementation of the nuclear agreement. 
According to the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), if Iran complies with the terms of the agreement, the U.S. is obligated to “license non-U.S. entities that are owned or controlled by a U.S. person to engage in activities with Iran that are consistent with this [agreement].”
Simply put, this means foreign companies that are subsidiaries of U.S. companies will be allowed to do business with Iran.

WAVE OF TERROR IN ISRAEL FUELLED BY ISLAMIST SUPREMACISM
A bigoted doctrine of Islamist supremacy regards any non-Muslim access to the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif as an invasion, fuelling terror.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Sun, October 11, 2015
A wave of terrorist attacks has intensified in Israel over the past week. Four Jewish Israelis were killed last weekend and there have been hundreds of attacks since then, ranging from stone throwing, stabbing and attempted lynching to rocket fire from the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli army and armed civilians have killed several terrorists while they were attempting to carry out their attacks and rioters during protests which turned violent. There have also been several revenge attacks in which Israelis have taken the law into their own hands and attacked Arabs at random.
No Arabs have been killed in these attacks.
Some have blamed this latest uptick in violence is being blamed on Israeli access to the Temple Mount, known to Muslims as the Haram al-Sharif, home of the Al-Aqsa mosque.

TALIBAN THREAT WORSE THAN AT ANY TIME SINCE 2001
The Taliban threaten more of Afghanistan than at any time since the US deposed them in 2001 according to UN data, despite over a decade of war.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Mon, October 12, 2015
An IED hit a British convoy in Kabul this morning. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, claiming it was revenge for British air strikes on Kunduz, where coalition forces are battling to push out the Taliban.
The attack in the middle of the Afghan capital underscores the extent to which over a decade of war has failed to bring security to Afghanistan.
U.S. air strikes accidentally killed 22 doctors and patients in a Medecins Sans Frontiere (Doctors Without Borders) hospital last week, drawing criticism of U.S. military precautions to avoid civilian casualties. 
Newly released UN statistics show the Afghan Taliban is now operating in more of Afghanistan than at any time since 2001.

The story of Doha and Adeeb, who lost their son and their country when previously friendly neighbors joined ISIS.

The human story of the tragedy that has been thrust upon the world by the Islamist terrorist organization ISIS is often lost in numbers of refugees, rapes, beheadings and sex slavery – horrors that have been perpetrated on such a wide scale they have unfortunately become part of our lexicon.
The following video tells the story of one Iraqi Christian family targeted for their religion by previously friendly neighbors who joined the Islamic State:

NAVY SEAL WHO KILLED BIN LADEN THREATENED BY ISLAMIC STATE
Rob O'Neill, who killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, had his address posted online by an Islamic State Twitter account with a threat.
One of the U.S. Navy Seals who killed Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has received personalized death threats from an Islamic State supporter.
Former marine Rob O’Neill had his address in Butte, Montana posted online by an Islamic State-affiliated Twitter account with the hashtag #RunRobertRun.
Undersheriff George Skuletich of the Butte-Silver Bow Law Enforcement Department told media that O’Neill no longer lives in Butte but the threat had been received and was being taken seriously by law-enforcement officers.
The Twitter account belonged to Sally Jones, a British convert to Islam who travelled to Syria and joined the Islamic State and was married to Junaid Hussain, another British citizen who played a senior role in the Islamic State as a hacker. Hussain was killed in a drone strike in August.
O’Neill is now working as a network contributor for Fox News and last year claimed he fired the fatal shot which killed bin Laden.

TEXAS BORDER OFFICIALS CONCERNED ABOUT ISIS INFILTRATORS
'Individuals [have] come across the Texas/Mexican border from countries with a known terrorism presence,' says Texas DPS director.
The possibility of Islamic State (ISIS) infiltrators into the United States from Mexico is cause for concern in the Texas Department of Public Safety.
During the annual Texas Border Coalition meeting, DPS Director Steven McCraw was asked if there have been any ISIS members arrested on the border.
"Individuals [have] come across the Texas/Mexican border from countries with a known terrorism presence, and the answer to that is yes. We have individuals that we've needed to debrief in Pashto/Dari [tribal languages spoken in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and surrounding countries]. Not a lot of Pashto and Dari speakers around. But you can't think about the last attack; you have to think of the next attack and where our vulnerabilities are. So, we're concerned about that,” McCraw said.
In the past, Texas border security officials have arrested members of Islamist terrorist organizations, including Somalis from Al-Shabab (perpetrators of the horrific Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi) as well as other Somalis who were members of a group with ties to Osama Bin-Laden.
In February, Al-Qaeda’s branch in Somalia released a video threatening Western shopping malls, specifically Mall of America in Minnesota, where a large number of Somali immigrants reside.
Texas authorities also have arrested members of terrorist groups from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh as well as individuals with ties to terrorists from Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, Libya and Pakistan.
In April, Judicial Watch reported that ISIS was operating a camp in Mexico just miles from El Paso, Texas. The non-profit watchdog group cited sources that included a Mexican army field grade officer and a Mexican federal police inspector.

WOMAN MURDERED IN GERMANY BY FAMILY FOR BEING GANG RAPED
A 20-year-old Syrian woman was found dead in Germany and is thought to have been killed by her family who saw her as 'unclean' after gang rape.
It is suspected her mother ordered the killing and her father and two brothers carried it out. Her family regarded the woman as ‘unclean’ following her gang rape by three men in her native Syria two years ago.
The young woman, identified as Rokstan M. was found in a shallow grave near the German city of Dessau.  
The autopsy found she had been stabbed multiple times.

75% OF FOREIGN JIHADIS IN US NABBED DUE TO INFORMANTS: REPORT
In probably most cases, these informants are Muslims, which means that info by Muslims has had a huge role in keeping the U.S. safe.
A bipartisan House Homeland Security report is full of hair-raising facts but has one item of encouragement: Three-fourths of foreign fighters arrested in the U.S. were caught due to confidential informants close to them. In many and probably most cases, these informants are Muslims.
"More than 75 percent of U.S. foreign-fighter arrest cases involved a confidential source, informant, family member, or concerned community member who cooperated with or tipped off authorities. In other words, private citizens have been key to detecting aspiring travelers," the report says.
If you read a criminal complaint of a foreign fighter suspect, you'll probably see transcripts of conversations recorded by the confidential informant. Islamist extremists will only incriminate themselves to their innermost, infidel-free circle. In other words, many confidential informants—if not most—are Muslims.

ISIS Cuts Off Fingertips of 12-Yr Old Christian Boy
He was later crucified with his father. Ten others were killed, including two women, who were raped in front of a crowd before being beheaded.
Tue, October 6, 2015

An Islamic State terrorist reading out a crucifixion sentence in Syria
Reports have emerged about the brutal killing of 12 Christians, including a 12-year-old boy, by the Islamic State in Syria.

The boy was the son of a Syrian ministry team leader who had started nine churches in Syria. The executions took place in village outside of Aleppo.
A spokesperson for Christian Aid said, “In front of the team leader and relatives in the crowd, the Islamic extremists cut off the fingertips of the boy and severely beat him, telling his father they would stop the torture only if he, the father, returned to Islam. When the team leader refused, relatives said, the ISIS militants also tortured and beat him and the two other ministry workers. The three men and the boy then met their deaths in crucifixion."
Eight other aid workers were separately executed for refusing to denounce their faith. In front of a crowd that was summoned to watch, two of the workers, women aged 29 and 33, were raped before all eight were beheaded.
Syria’s Christian’s population has decreased by two-thirds since 2011, when the conflict began. In Iraq, the Christian population, which numbered at close to 1.5 million in 2003 has shrunk to below 200,000 today.
"It is like going back 1,000 years seeing the barbarity that Christians are having to live under. I think we are dealing with a group which makes Nazism pale in comparison and I think they have lost all respect for human life," said Patrick Sookhdeo, founder of Barnabas Fund, a charity which helps Syrian Christians. "Crucifying these people is sending a message and they are using forms of killing which they believe have been sanctioned by Sharia law."
"For them what they are doing is perfectly normal and they don't see a problem with it. It is that religious justification which is so appalling," he added.

CAMERON CALLS OUT OBAMA FOR FAILURE TO NAME ISLAMISM
UK Prime Minister David Cameron told Barack Obama at the UN that Islamist ideology is the biggest problem, not violence from other faiths. More  VOICES FORHUMAN RIGHTS
UK Prime Minister David Cameron told Barack Obama at the UN that Islamist ideology is the biggest problem, not violence from other faiths.
Thu, October 1, 2015
U.S. President Barack Obama has drawn fire in the UN from UK Prime Minister David Cameron this week over Obama’s refusal to name the Islamist ideology specifically as the root cause of violent extremism.

Obama cautioned a gathering of international leaders not to profile Muslims specifically on the grounds that “violent extremism is not unique to any one faith.”
“Barack, you said it and you’re right — every religion has its extremists,” Cameron countered. “But we have to be frank that the biggest problem we have today is the Islamist extremist violence that has given birth to ISIL, to al-Shabab, to al-Nusra, al Qaeda and so many other groups.”
“The boy who straps a bomb to his chest and blows up an Iraqi town, the guy that stands in the desert with a knife, having just beheaded a British hostage or whoever, they don’t get there from a standing start” Cameron went on to say.
“They have extremist views and an extremist mindset before they make that final decision to be an extremist terrorist. We have to stop this process at the start, not at the end. We also need to challenge the extremist worldview right at the very start,” he added.

Cameron first named the political ideology of Islamist extremism as the cause of terrorism in a landmark speech earlier this year.

Obama responded positively to Cameron’s remarks while still not naming Islamist extremism as the problem, however, saying, “I thought David Cameron’s point [on radicalization] was excellent, that we are focused on violent extremism, but violent extremism is emerging out of an extremist worldview that has to be counteracted.”




AKI MUTHALI: CRITICS OF ISLAMISM MUST HAVE A BIGGER PLATFORM
Atheist and feminist journalist Aki Muthari spoke with Clarion Project about the abuse she receives for calling out Islamism for what it is.
Aki Muthari is a journalist, illustrator and painter and an outspoken atheist and feminist. She was born and raised in Sri Lanka and moved to Canada with her family in 1993 as a result of the civil war.

She has been very vocal about systemic misogyny and sexism in her personal life and society. Her works express her profound frustration with identity politics and her absolute disgust for tribalism and moral hypocrisy. She states her objective as "to ultimately give voice, solidarity and empowerment to those persecuted by cultural and religious atrocities so those responsible for their abuse will be held accountable, because the only way we can destroy systematic abuse is by tackling it directly."
The following is her interview with Clarion Project Research Fellow Elliot Friedland about Islamism and the persecution of atheists. 
Clarion Project: Why do you think liberals in America have had such difficulty supporting atheists in Muslim majority societies, despite the obvious persecution they face?
Aki Muthali: Liberals in America have difficulty supporting atheists in Muslim-majority societies because they not only have a lower expectation of how Muslims can behave as rational people, but they also erroneously conflate the anti-Muslim bigotry faced by Muslim minorities in the West to how Muslims abuse atheists and non-Muslims in the East.
Their narrative has been, for a long time, that Muslims are always the victims regardless of where they reside. They justify this dishonest narrative with everything from the Christian conquest of Spain in 1492, to the birth of Israel in 1948, to white guilt and Western imperialism. There's no limit to how far a Western liberal will betray actual liberal values to make up for the guilt they erroneously feel towards their own country. Their priority is consoling their indignation (regardless of how misplaced it is) -- not human rights.

GERMANY ARRESTS ISIS RECRUITER POSING AS ASYLUM SEEKER
Fake passports, terrorists in disguise and the machinations of Saudi Arabia make the refugee crisis in Europe more complicated than it seems. 
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Sun, September 20, 2015
The Islamic State and other Islamists are trying to manipulate the refugee crisis, which they partially created, in order to undermine European security. (Photo: © Alex Meyler/Clarion Project)
A 21-year old from Morocco has been arrested by German authorities at a refugee center near Stuttgart on suspicion of being an Islamic State recruiter. The man was sought under a European arrest warrant issued by Spanish authorities. He used a false identity to pose as an asylum seeker.
According to The New Observer, this is the first time German authorities have arrested a terror suspect masquerading as an asylum seeker.
At the same time it was reported the German government seized 10,000 fake Syrian passports, which are being sold to those seeking to gain entry to the EU for around $1,500 each. Possession of a Syrian passport makes claiming asylum a lot easier.
Out of 213,000 migrants who arrived in April, only 44,000 were from Syria, according to figures from Eurostat, the official EU statistics agency. Others come from a variety of countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, and across North Africa.

ARRESTED AT 17, SAUDI PROTESTER TO BE BEHEADED, CRUCIFIED
Mohammed al-Nimr, now 21, was arrested while taking part in a protest of Shiite Muslims in Saudi Arabia. Charges of torture were denied at his 'trial.'
A young protester in Saudi Arabia will be beheaded, after which his body will be crucified in public and left to rot. 
Last week, an appelate court in the kingdom upheld the sentence of Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, 21, who was arrested in 2012 when he was 17. Al-Nimr was picked up by the police while taking part in a protest by Shiite Muslims in Qatif, an eastern province of the country. The eastern provinces of the desert kingdom are home to Saudi Arabia’s 2.7 million minority Shiites.
Al-Nimr was charged with a variety of crimes, including being part of a terrorist organization, carrying weapons and throwing Molotov cocktails at security forces. He was also accused of using his phone to encourage others to protest and explaining to them how to give first aid. The charges are based on his confession, which he says was obtained through torture.

france has arrested a man on charges of planning a terrorist attack on a concert hall in France.
The 29-year-old French citizen, who had travelled to the Islamic State’s de-facto capital of Raqqa and spent a week there, was arrested last month. Officials made the announcement of his arrest on Friday.
He was charged with “criminal association in relation with a criminal terrorist enterprise.” A handgun was found at his home at the time of the arrest.
The man was not previously known to security services and was only located by French authorities after a tip-off by a Moroccan national who was arrested in Poland in June and who told authorities that he had travelled to Europe with another man.

SAUDI ARABIA TO SELECT EXPERTS FOR UN HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL
The Saudi Ambassador for the UN is to chair a committee that selects human rights experts for the UN around the world, despite its own abuses.
Mon, September 21, 2015
Saudi Arabia has been appointed to chair of a panel of experts at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), prompting uproar from rights campaigners worldwide.
Faisal Trad, Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.N., is now chairman of a panel of five diplomats charged with appointing independent experts to serve in 77 different positions around the world for the UNHRC.
The news comes just after Saudi Arabia advertised for eight additional executioners. Numbers of executions have sharply risen this year. In June the country executed its one-hundredth person so far this year, but there have been many more since then.

Congressional Report: Iran Spends Billions to Foment Global Terror
The Congressional Research Service details monies spent by Iran supporting terrorist organizations in the Middle East.
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Mon, September 7, 2015
Responding to a request from Senator Mark Kirk (R-IL), the Congressional Research Service prepared a report detailing monies spent by Iran supporting terrorist organizations in the Middle East.

The report, obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, outlined the massive expenditures by the Iranian regime on Hezbollah in Lebanon, Shiite militias Syria and Iraq, the Assad government, the Houthi rebels in Yemen and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, as well as Iran's own military program.
These expenditures will only increase with the expected release of $150 billion in sanctions relief due to the current nuclear agreement between Iran and the world powers.
Iranian Military Spending
Although in May 2015, U.S. President Barack Obama stated Iran’s military budget was “$15 billion compared to $150 billion for the Gulf States,” Press TV, an Iranian-owned media outlet, reported in March the Iranian parliament had approved a $300 billion budget for the military for 2015.
The report names the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps’ Quds Force as the main vehicle that carries out terrorism for the regime, citing one study that claims the actual funding for the force is “much greater” than the amount allotted to it in the official budget “as the group’s funds are supplemented by its own economic activities.”
Assad Government
Iran provides an estimated $6-20 billion per year in aid to the Assad regime in Syria. One source estimated in 2013 Iran was giving $600-700 million per month to Syria, while another says that the amount has since doubled. The money funds militias, weapons and military training as well as the purchase of subsidized oil from Iran and other commodities.
Although Iran claims to be cash strapped because of international sanctions, this past July, Iran extended $1 billion in additional financial credit to the Syrian regime.
Shiite Militias in Syria
Iran provides training for Iraqi Shiite militias who are fighting for the Assad regime in Syria. An estimated 5-10,000 Iraqi Shiites are said to comprise these forces that fight alongside Hezbollah and form sniper teams, lead ambushes, establish checkpoints and provide infantry support for Syrian armored corps. Iran also recruits fighters for the Assad regime from Afghanistan and from within Syria itself. Iran pays each fighter an estimated $500-1,000 per month.
Shiite Militias in Iraq
One Iranian cleric cited in the congressional report estimates Iran has spent more than $1 billion in military aid to Iraq since the Islamic State swept through the country and captured large swathes of territory in the north last summer.
The militias Iran funds in Iraq are theose that fought against the United States between 2003 and 2011. Iraqi intelligence officials say just one of these militias, As'aib Ahl Al Haq (League of the Righteous), receives between $1.5 and $2 million per month from Iran.
A report published by Amnnesty International in 2014 titled Absolute Impunity: Militia Rule in Iraq documented the horrific kidnapping and murder of Sunni men by these Shiite paramilitary groups.
Hezbollah
The latest State Department Country Report on Terrorism (2014) states Iran provided Hezbollah with “training, weapons, and explosives, as well as political, diplomatic, monetary, and organizational aid.” The Department of Defense estimates Tehran gives Hezbollah between $100-200 million in aid per year.
Hamas
In 2006, it was estimated Iran was providing Hamas with $20-25 million per month to cover its governing budget as well as supplying the Gaza-based terror group weapons, technical assistance and military training.
In the years following, it was reported the aid had been cut, while at the same time Iran began sending more assistance to an alternate terror group, Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Most recent media reports say Iran has resumed its support of Hamas, providing “tens of millions of dollars” to Hamas’ military efforts including the rebuilding of tunnels destroyed the 2014 Israel-Gaza war, the replenishment of rockets and the salaries of fighters.
Houthi Rebels
Over the past number of years, Iran has been increasing its activities in Yemen. The Islamic republic is currently supporting the Houthi rebels who are fighting against the Saudi-backed Yemeni government, providing them with “tens of millions of dollars.” 
The infusion of $150 billion dollars in sanctions relief due to the current nuclear agreement with the world's powers, in addition to monies garnered through vast business dealings with the West, will provide Iran will more fodder as it fans out its terrorist fires across the globe.

Mystery Assassins Target ISIS' Brutal Women's Brigade
Six members of the Islamic State's all female al-Khansa brigade were killed by an unknown armed group.
Mon, September 7, 2015
Unknown armed men have been attacking ISIS women within Mosul, the largest city controlled by ISIS. Although ISIS controls large swathes of territory, it is far from pacified.
“An armed unknown group attacked one of the offices of Khansa women’s organization of ISIS in the area of new Mosul,” media officer of the Democratic Kurdish Party in Mosul, Saeed Mamuzini told Al-Sumaria News on Sunday. “The attack led to the deaths of six female members of the organization. The women of ISIS are active in recruiting other women to work within the organization.”
He added “Last week three Khansa women were killed during an armed attack in the neighborhood of Babel in Mosul.”
The ­Khansa brigade is feared for its brutality. In Raqqa the brigade was reported to be using a device called ‘the biter’ to savage the breasts of women caught breastfeeding publicly or insufficiently veiled.
ISIS responds to any disobedience with harsh and immediate punishment. “ISIS armed men kidnapped 40 citizens from the public markets in the middle of Mosul for failure to grow their beards, in violation of ISIS instructions," a local source in Nineveh province told Al-Sumaria News on Sunday. "The fighters led the kidnapped citizens to one of the prisons."

HOMELAND SECURITY: HIGHEST TERROR THREAT SINCE 9/11

A new report by Homeland Security says there have already been more U.S.-based jihadist terror cases in 2015 than in any year since 9/11.
The Islamist terror threat to the U.S. is “surging” and the situation is getting “steadily worse,” concludes a new report by the House Homeland Security Committee.
Terror Threat Snapshot, prepared by the Majority staff, said the increased threat is largely due to radicalization and recruitment by the Islamic State.
Key takeaways about the U.S. from the report include:
To date in 2015, there have been more U.S.-based jihadist terror cases than in any (full) year since 9/11

While members of Congress pledged their support to the administration’s controversial nuclear agreement with Iran, a senior commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps warned if the U.S. makes a military move against the Islamic Republic, Iran will “cut off [our] enemies' hands and fingers [and] will then send its dust to the air."
Addressing a massive drill of the Basij volunteer militias in Tehran on Thursday, Brigadier General Hossein Salami said, "We monitor their acts day and night and will take every opportunity to set fire to all their economic and political interests if they do a wrong deed."
Earlier, Salami bristled when told U.S. officials said “all military option are still on the table.”

Pakistani Christians Told to Convert to Receive Flood Aid
Christians left homeless due to devastating flooding in Pakistan were told by Muslim charities: convert to Islam or become bonded servants.
Sun, August 30, 2015
Christians left homeless due to devastating flooding in Pakistan have been offered an unacceptable choice by Muslim charities providing for victims: convert to Islam or become bonded servants, essentially a form of modern-day slavery.
The choice come with the Pakistani government’s alleged decision to ignore the suffering of the country’s Christian communities.
"When it comes to responding to the flooding of Christian communities, the government seems to back off. Whereas with Muslim communities they respond immediately as do the Muslim charities," said Wilson Chowdhry, the president of the British Pakistani Christian Association speaking to The Christian Post

US Terror Suspect on No-Fly List Wants to Drive School Buses
Homeland Security says Amir Meshal represents a threat of 'conducting a violent act of terrorism' and 'is operationally capable of doing so.' A Minnesota man, who U.S. Homeland Security says may be a threat to national security, was granted a commercial license to drive semi-trucks. He has also applied for a school bus endorsement, which requires a criminal background check.
The tuition for his driving course, amounting to $4,000, was paid for through a state-run workforce program.
Amir Meshal was put on the no-fly list maintained by the U.S. government’s Terrorist Screening Center, which includes people not permitted to board a commercial aircraft to travel in or out of the U.S.

AFRICAN IMAMS & SCHOLARS DENOUNCE AL-SHABAAB, EXTREMISM
A conference of Sufi Muslims resolved to promote “tolerance and co-existence between the followers of Islam and Christianity.”Three-hundred Islamic scholars and imams from Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo pledged to “join their respective governments in weeding out extremism.”
The group, part of a two-day International Sufi Conference in Kenya, said extremist Wahabi doctrine – emanating from Saudi Arabia – had hijacked Islam, and they had underestimated its appeal.
The imams and scholars issued a fatwa against the Islamist terror group Al Shabaab and its underlying Wahabist philosophy.

MALALA GIVEN 24-HOUR POLICE PROTECTION BY UK AUTHORITIES
Malala Yousufzai has been afforded police protection after increased threats on her life, just a week after passing state exams with flying colors
Malala Yousufzai, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and female education campaigner, has received 24-hour police protection from the UK government after an increase in threats to her life.

She will now be accompanied at all times by two armed guards, the same protection normally afforded to government ministers or visiting foreign politicians.
She was first targeted for assassination in Pakistan by the Taliban aged just 14, who shot her in the head for her work fighting for a girl’s right to attend school.
An unidentified source told the Sun newspaper “Her life's been at risk since that failed murder attempt. But threats have grown significantly as her profile has become bigger. Being a Nobel winner and female education campaigner means she is seen as a global ambassador. Her elite police protection reflects this.”
Last week Malala, now attending high school in the UK, received the results for her national high school exams, passing with flying colors. She received 6 A*s and 4 As in her GCSEs, exams taken by every 16 year old in education.

BOMBSHELL! UN TO ALLOW IRAN TO INSPECT OWN MILITARY SITES
The revelation comes from a document seen by the AP regarding two parts of the agreement that were kept secret
Thu, August 20, 2015
Dropping a bombshell on the Iranian nuclear agreement negotiated by U.S. along with other world powers and Iran, the AP has disclosed that Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors in sites suspected of military development of nuclear weapons.
The revelation comes from a document seen by the AP regarding two parts of the agreement that were kept secret. As per the agreement, two key passages were negotiated separately between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), a UN agency, and Iran, were to remain secret.
The secret parts of the deal concern inspections of the Parchin military installation, which has been under suspicion for years for conducting research on nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles. A second secret deal centers on separate negotiations to resolve the issue of possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program.
Neither the Congress, the secretary of state or the U.S. president can view the secret “annexes” of the deal according to the negotiated agreement.
The secret side deals were initially denied by officials in the Obama administration. “There's no side deals. There's no secret deals between Iran and the IAEA that the P5+1 has not been briefed on in detail,” State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a press briefing.

ISIS Publicly Whips 20 Women for Not Veiling Eyes
Dragged into the center of the market, the women were lashed with a whip the size of which 'even a large animal couldn’t withstand.'
Thu, August 20, 2015
ISIS publicly whipped 20 women in the center of a market in Mosul claiming that they were not wearing the required piece of black cloth to cover their eyes over the veil that is required of women to cover their face.
The whipping marks the first time that ISIS militants lashed the local women themselves. Previously, ISIS has sent not send foreign female vounteers to mete out such punishments.
Reports in the Iraqi newspaper A-Sabach (The Morning)  say that the woman were lashed on their backs and legs.
A.Y., a victim who spoke to the paper on the condition of anonymity, described the terrible scene:
“I didn’t know about this new ridiculous rule of ISIS, that now we have to have a black cloth covering our eyes on top of the required niqab (face veil).  I was shopping in a store in the market when an ISIS militant violently grabbed me  and dragged me outside. He was shouting over and over, ‘La Illaha Illa La’ (‘There is no God but Allah’).
He screamed at me that anyone who doesn’t follow ISIS’ rules  is an enemy of Allah. My legs were trembling from fear. I had no idea what I had done wrong to deserve this humiliating treatment.

No Asylum in America for Yazidis Fleeing ISIS
Although thousands have fled ISIS persecution, only 10 families have been allowed into the US and none of those because of ISIS persecution.
Thu, August 20, 2015
Despite the thousands of Yazidis who have been displaced by the Islamic State, only 10 Yazidi families have received asylum in the United States.
Those in America have entered on visas connected to a program for translators who served with American forces during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, according to Yazda, a Yazidi rights organization based in America.  “None of these families [in U.S.] are related to the crisis” Abid Shamden, who works with Yazda, told Fox News.
“But many are still there” he added. “They are not given any special status. They are all treated as the same. My family has been waiting since 2012 for visas.”
There are an estimated 700,000 Yazidis in the world. Yazidis follow of a unique and ancient faith indigenous to the Middle East. Their religion is a unique blend of Persian Zoroastrianism with influences from Christianity and Islam. They worship Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel, which has led to accusations of devil worship.

U.S. Intelligence Suspects ISIS Planning Mass-Casualty Attack
Analysts in the intelligence community see an Islamic State overwhelmed with recruits planning a grand attack to gain prestige among jihadists.
Analysts in the intelligence community warned the Islamic State may be preparing to carry out a mass-casualty terrorist attack, rather than encouraging its international supporters to carry out ‘lone-wolf’ attacks.

Increased competition for recruits and prestige with different jihadist factions are being floated as causes for this possible shift in emphasis. Groups such as Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) typically are more focused on larger attacks, such as the massacre at Charlie Hebdo, or plots against airliners. The Islamic State may be attempting to portray itself as capable and powerful in that regard.
Lt-Gen. Mark Hertling told CNN “I think they're taking a lot of the new recruits that don't have time to train, who have not been brought up in their systems, and they're using them to create the type of mass casualty which produces the media attention, which is exactly what they want, that shows they're still powerful.”

Despite the U.S.-led bombing campaign and ISIS fighting wars on every front, losing thousands of fighters, the Islamic State is still estimated to have the same number of fighters as it did last year (20,000 to 30,000). Its sophisticated recruitment methods have enabled the organization to replenish its forces as fast as their enemies can kill them.


US CONSULATE ATTACKED IN ISTANBUL; ATTACKS IN SOUTHERN TURKEY
Attacks hit the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul. A car bomb went off in another district and four policemen and a soldier were killed in Sirnak.
Mon, August 10, 2015
The U.S. consulate in Istanbul was among several targets attacked in Turkey August 10. No one was injured in the attack on the consulate and a woman was arrested following a firefight with police.
Separately, four police officers were killed in an earlier strike against a police station in the mainly Kurdish province of Sirnak.
Shortly afterwards, militants shot and killed a soldier in a helicopter.
Also in Istanbul, prior to the attack on the consulate, a bomb went off in the Sultanbeyli district, injuring three policemen and seven civilians.
So far there is no evidence that the attacks were linked. 
Turkey blamed ‘separatist terrorists’ for the attack, which is used by the government as shorthand for Kurdish militants.

MEET ISIS' CLEANERS; INDIANS ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO FIGHT
Despite the Islamic State's claim to accept all Muslims, ISIS's Indian recruits are regarded as too frail to fight.
Indian jihadists fighting for the Islamic State are not allowed to use weapons and fight, since ISIS commanders think they are too weak and frail to do so. Rather they are assigned menial jobs, cooking and cleaning for other fighters.
According to Indian news outlet One India, there are seven Indian jihadists in a camp in Syria. Only one has been allowed onto the battlefield.

GERMAN POLICE WARN OF DE FACTO NO-GO ZONES
In Germany's politically correct milieu, Roman Reusch, a top public prosecutor in Berlin, was removed for attempting a crackdown.
This article appeared originally on GatestoneInstitute.org
Spiraling levels of violent crime perpetrated by immigrants from the Middle East and the Balkans are turning parts of Duisburg, a key German industrial city, into "areas of lawlessness" — areas that are becoming de facto "no-go" zones for police, according to a confidential police report that was leaked to the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel.
The report, produced by the police headquarters of North Rhine-Westphalia, the most populous state of Germany (and also the state with the largest Muslim population in Germany), warns that the government is losing control over problem neighborhoods and that the ability of police to maintain public order "cannot be guaranteed over the long term."
Duisburg, which has a total population of around 500,000, is home to an estimated 60,000 mostly Turkish Muslims, making it one of the most Islamized cities in Germany. In recent years, however, thousands of Bulgarians and Romanians (including Sinti and Roma "gypsies") have flocked to Duisburg, creating a volatile ethno-religious cauldron.

Iranian Game Site Introduces 'Beat Up and Insult the Arab'
In other cyber news, a new app for Android phones was launched by the Islamic State to get the latest information on the Islamist terror group.
Wed, August 5, 2015
A new video game making fun of and insulting Arabs was released on an Iranian website. The game, titled Beat Up and Insult the Arab, is available for free downloading from the site.
The site is reportedly registered with the Iranian regulatory agency of websites, which is connected to the Ministry of Culture and Guidance. Al Arabiya states the site “introduces itself as an entertainment site that operates based on the rules of the Islamic Republic. On the site, it states that it will remove any content that violates Islamic laws."

UK HATE PREACHER ANJEM CHOUDARY ARRESTED
The UK's most notorious hate preacher has been arrested and charged with inviting support for the Islamic State.
Thu, August 6, 2015
Britain’s most notorious Islamist hate preacher Anjem Choudary has been arrested for inviting support for the Islamic State. He is being charged along with another man.
Specifically, the court is focusing on lectures he published online.
Choudary has long been a leading proponent of Islamism in the UK, drawing controversy for extremist statements such as “I don’t affiliate with things like ­democracy and freedom. My set of values and principles arise from Islam.”
In the past he refused to condemn the 7/7 bombings or Islamic State beheadings. His group, then called Muslims Against Crusades, first rose to national prominence after publicly burning poppies (a symbol of memorial for deceased soldiers commonly worn on and around November 11) at funerals of British soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan.

KERRY DOUBTS IRAN WANTS TO DESTROY ISRAEL
Kerry's statement comes despite the fact that Ayatollah Khamenei published his strategy to eliminate Israel in a new book published last week.

US SEc. of State John Kerry testifying before Congress about the nuclear deal with Iran (Photo: © Reuters)
Iran may not mean it when it says it wants to destroy Israel—that's the shocking statement that Secretary of State John Kerry said in an interview published yesterday. And his reason for thinking that the Iranian regime is nicer than its calls for genocide make it seem? Because Iran hasn't tried it yet.
The telling exchange with Jeffrey Goldberg is as follows:
"Goldberg: Do you believe that Iranian leaders sincerely seek the elimination of the Jewish state?
Kerry: I think they have a fundamental ideological confrontation with Israel at this particular moment. Whether or not that translates into active steps to, quote, “Wipe it,” you know...
Goldberg: “Wipe it off the map.”
Kerry: I don’t know the answer to that. I haven’t seen anything that says to me—they’ve got 80,000 rockets in Hezbollah pointed at Israel, and any number of choices could have been made. They didn’t make the bomb when they had enough material for 10 to 12. They’ve signed on to an agreement where they say they’ll never try and make one and we have a mechanism in place where we can prove that. So I don’t want to get locked into that debate. I think it’s a waste of time here."

How to Scam ISIS
Three Chechen women pretended to be jihadi brides through fake social media accounts, but kept the travel money ISIS sent them instead.
Thu, July 30, 2015
Three young Muslim women have scammed the Islamic State out of over $2,500. The Chechen women set up fake social media accounts and contacted the Islamic State, claiming to be aspirational jihadi brides, titillated by the prospect of moving to Syria.

They only required the funds for travel.
Once ISIS militants had wired them the money, the girls promptly deleted their accounts and pocketed the money.
Chechen police have now arrested them for the scam. Officer Valery Zolotaryov told Moskovsky Komsomolets “I don’t recall any precedent like this one in Chechnya, probably because nobody digs deep enough in that direction.”
He added “Anyhow, I don’t advise anyone to communicate with dangerous criminals, especially for grabbing quick money.”

For women who travel to Syria to become jihadi brides, their husbands hold complete power over them and they face the possibility of a life of sexual abuse.

CNN Poll: Majority of Americans Oppose Nuclear Deal With Iran
According to the new poll, 52 percent of adult Americans want Congress to reject the deal, while 44 percent say it should be approved.
Wed, July 29, 2015
A new poll conducted by CNN/ORC indicates the majority of Americans oppose the recent nuclear agreement with Iran negotiated by the United States and five world powers.
According to the poll, 52 percent want Congress to reject the deal, while 44% say it should be approved. Among Democrats, 56% of respondents 35-years old or above oppose the deal;  of those between the ages of 18-34, 53% think Congress should approve the deal.
Among Republicans, the poll suggested 66% oppose the deal and among independents, 55%.
In an earlier poll conducted within just a few weeks of the completion of the agreement, two-thirds of Americans polled said they did not believe negotiations would prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
Results of the poll were taken from a sampling of 1,017 adults, 898 of whom were registered voters. The poll has a margin of error of three percent.

Children at Increasing Risk of Islamist Radicalization in UK
The Channel Project, a government body tasked with preventing radicalization among vulnerable people had 758 children referred last year.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Wed, July 29, 2015
Children are increasingly at risk of radicalization in the UK, according to an investigation by The Telegraph.
The Channel Project, which acts to prevent vulnerable people being radicalized, had some 758 under 16s reported last year for worrying behavior. Of those, 113 were under 12.
Those reported included a three-year old, whose entire family was reported for worrying behavior.
The Channel Project does not arrest those reported to it, but implements its de-radicalization strategies.
Deputy Chief Constable Craig Denholm, one of the police officers in charge of the Channel Project., told The Telegraph:
“Channel supports people who are vulnerable to being radicalised and drawn into terrorism. It works in a similar way to other safeguarding, partnership activity where agencies come together to support vulnerable individuals; for example work to address drugs, guns and gangs issues through early intervention.
“Types of support can include life-skills, mentoring, and access to education, careers advice, and consideration of housing need amongst others. It has increasingly become recognised by partner agencies as having an important role to play in safeguarding communities from harm. Both vulnerable adults and young people are safeguarded through Channel.
“In exceptional circumstances some younger children are provided support as part of a wider, whole family approach.
“This does not mean that a young child is expressing radical views. However, this enables a family to benefit from the expertise and wrap around support that Channel provides.”

Three ISIS Terror Trials This Week in America
Two men have been sentenced and a third began trial for attempting to carry out terrorist attacks on American soil and join ISIS abroad.
Wed, July 29, 2015
A man who plotted to detonate a nail bomb on a Florida beach was charged on Tuesday.
Harlem Suarez, 23, obtained bomb supplies, including two boxes of nails, from an FBI informant, according to a criminal complaint. Suarez is alleged to have told the informant of his intention to construct a bomb, bury it on a beach in Key West and then detonate it remotely.
In a recorded call Suarez said “I can go to the beach at the nighttime, put the thing in the sand, cover it up, so the next day I just call and the thing is gonna, is gonna make, a real hard noise from nowhere.”
His Facebook account is littered with praise for the Islamic State. One post in April allegedly read “Be a warrior, learn how to cut your enemies head and then burn down the body learn how to be the new future of the world Caliphate.”
ISIS is seeking to build a global Islamic Caliphate and conquer the world.
He also attempted to purchase an AK-47 online. Despite the fact that he was legally allowed to do so, he filled out the paperwork incorrectly and the rifle was returned to sender.

FBI Investigating Terrorism in All 50 States
FBI Director James Comey revealed the ongoing investigations during a news conference in Utah, warning the public to be vigilant.
Thu, July 23, 2015
The FBI is carrying out ongoing terrorism investigations in all 50 US States, said its director, James Comey.
Comey spoke in Utah at a news conference about the FBI's efforts to tackle the Islamic State’s highly successful online propaganda.
"It's a message that goes to troubled souls anywhere in the United States. As a result, we have investigations in every state in the Union that focuses on trying to understand who is consuming that poison,” he said.
He noted the conflict between security needs and online privacy, saying: “Those values are increasingly in conflict when lawful court orders in criminal investigations encounter unbreakable encryption and we need to figure out a way as a people how to accommodate both of those values.”
He called on the public to report anything suspicious to the authorities, no matter how seemingly minor.
Law enforcement has been successful in stopping “over 60” Islamic State plots so far this year, according to the chair of the House Homeland Security Committee Michael McCaul.

Raha Bahreini: Iran is Ruthlessly Crushing All Dissent
Raha Bahreini is the Iran researcher for Amnesty International who spoke about the horrific case of woman sentenced to 12.5 yrs for drawing a cartoon.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Tue, July 21, 2015
Raha Bahreini is an Iranian-Canadian human rights lawyer and advocate. She is the Iran researcher for Amnesty International and works to raise awareness of the multitude of cases of human rights abuses perpetrated by the Iranian regime.
She tweets here.
 One of the cases she is working on is that of Atena Farghandani, an Iranian cartoonist and human-rights advocate who lampooned the Iranian legislators by drawing them as animals, criticizing them for passing a law which severely restricts birth control for men and women.
For this, she was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison.
Raha Bahreini graciously agreed to speak with Clarion Project Research Fellow Elliot Friedland about the case.
1. Clarion Project: When and how did the case of Atena Farghandani come to your attention? 
Raha Bahreini: Amnesty International first started working on the case of Atena Farghadani in February 2015 when she had started a hunger strike in protest at her detention in Gharchak Prison, in the city of Varamin.
Gharchak prison has no section for political prisoners and where conditions of detention are extremely poor.

Two Key Parts of Iran Deal Being Kept Secret From Congress
As per the agreement, inspections of the Parchin military site and negotiations on military dimensions will not be reviewed by Congress.
Thu, July 23, 2015
Two key passage of the Iran deal are being kept secret. As per the agreement, these passages will be negotiated separately between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran and will not be be available for review by Congress.
The first concerns the inspection of the Pachin military installation, which has been under suspicion for years for conducting research on nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles. The second centers on separate negotiations to resolve the issue of possible military dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program.
Two Congressmen released a statement after meeting with the IAEA in Vienna which reads,
“Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) and Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) on Friday had a meeting in Vienna with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), during which the agency conveyed to the lawmakers that two side deals made between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the IAEA as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will remain secret and will not be shared with other nations, with Congress, or with the public.
"One agreement covers the inspection of the Parchin military complex, and the second details how the IAEA and Iran will resolve outstanding issues on possible military dimensions of Iran’s nuclear program.”
According to a summary of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, which mandates a review of any agreement by Congress (which was signed into law by U.S. President Barack Obama), “The bill requires the president to submit to Congress the agreement and all related documents, including specifics on verification and compliance. This ensures Congress will get to see the entire deal and make an independent judgment on its merits.” [emphasis added]
One of the authors of the review bill, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn), noted, “The review period does not begin until all documents associated with an agreement are submitted to Congress along with assessments on compliance and non-proliferation.”
Pompeo, who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, commented, "The Obama administration has failed to make public separate side deals that have been struck for the 'inspection' of one of the most important nuclear sites—the Parchin military complex.
"Not only does this violate the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, it is asking Congress to agree to a deal that it cannot review," he said. "Even members of Congress who are sympathetic to this deal cannot and must not accept a deal we aren’t even aware of.” 
Similarly, Cotton, said, "That we are only now discovering that parts of this dangerous agreement are being kept secret begs the question of what other elements may also be secret and entirely free from public scrutiny." 
Meanwhile, a recent Pew poll suggested “there is widespread skepticism” about the agreement on the part of the American public. Of the 79 percent of Americans who are aware of the deal polled, 48 percent disapproved while 38 percent approved. Seventy-three percent responded they have no confidence or not too much confidence that Iran will hold up its side of the agreement.

Reports: Islamic State Turns Chickens into Suicide Bombers
The birds are apparently dispatched towards ISIS' enemies and then detonated by remote control.
Tue, July 21, 2015
Last week we reported on ISIS using a baby to teach cadets how to detonate bombs and this week we bring you a report that the Islamic State is turning chickens into suicide bombers.
Israel has long said the Hamas terror organization used explosive-laden donkeys to attack Israeli soldiers and now it appears Islamic State is adopting similar tactics with chickens in the Falluja area of Iraq.
The birds are seemingly sent in the direction of the camps of enemy fighters and then their explosive packs are detonated by remote control.
There is still a question as to the authenticity of photos posted to social media of the suicide chickens.

Islamic State Execution Clip Threatens Slaughter in Paris
The short ISIS clip shows a regime soldier being shot in the head and threatens attacks in the French capital.
Thu, July 23, 2015
A new Islamic State video threatened to slaughter people in the streets of Paris.
The short clip, showing the execution of a regime soldier by an ISIS jihadist, featured a direct threat to attack France.
The video shows a soldier in Bashar Al-Assad’s army forced to his knees in the desert. The executioner then issues a series of threats and proclamations, saying:
“A message that we send to the French that are fighting Allah, praised and exalted be he, and his messenger, may Allah honor him and grant him peace. A message that we send to the international coalition, a message that we send to everyone who fights Allah, praised and exalted be he, and his messenger, may Allah honor him and grant him peace.
“In the name of Allah, we have brought you men who love death more than you love life O enemies of Allah.
In the name of Allah we are going to slaughter you in the streets of Paris.”
An ISIS fighter then shoots the prisoner in the head and kicks his body over a cliff.

UK PM Cameron Delivers Landmark Speech on Islamism
In a first for a Western country, the UK leader clearly named the problem of Islamist extremism as distinct from, but related to, Islam.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Tue, July 21, 2015
UK Prime Minister David Cameron gave a landmark speech yesterday on Islamist extremism, naming, for the first time, the root cause behind international terrorism.
He told the audience at a school in Birmingham, “This is what we face – a radical ideology – that is not just subversive, but can seem exciting; one that has often sucked people in from non-violence to violence; one that is overpowering moderate voices within the debate and one which can gain traction because of issues of identity and failures of integration.”
This is the first time a Western leader has names Islamist extremism specifically as the problem and terrorism merely as a symptom of the ideology.
He said, “No-one becomes a terrorist from a standing start. It starts with a process of radicalization. When you look in detail at the backgrounds of those convicted of terrorist offenses, it is clear that many of them were first influenced by what some would call non-violent extremists.”
These include groups like the Egypian Muslim Brotherhood, founded in 1928 by Nazi sympathizer Hassan al-Banna, Hizb ut-Tahrir and the Pakistani-based Jamaat e-Islami, all of which peddle a soft Islamism which shares the goals of groups like the Islamci State (ISIS) but differ in methodology.
In the USA, Muslim Brotherhood front groups including the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) all play the part of non-violent extremist groups.
All of these organizations condemn the Islamic State, but as Cameron noted, so does Al-Qaeda. “We can’t let the bar sink to that level," he stated. "Condemning a mass-murdering, child-raping organization cannot be enough to prove you’re challenging the extremists.”

Missed by the Media: Ayatollah Clutches AK-47 During Speech
The 'prop' can be seen with Khamenei during his first speech after the signing of the nuclear agreement with Iran and the world powers.
Tue, July 21, 2015
A screenshot from Ayatollah Khamenei's latest speech. An AK-47 rifle can be seen beneath his left hand. (Screenshot: YouTube)
In his first public speech since the signing of the nuclear deal between Iran and the six world powers, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei can be seen clutching an AK-47 rifle as he reiterates that Iran considered America an enemy.

Reportage of the July 17 speech from the mainstream media -- including the Associated Press, Reuters, Agence France-Presse and The New York Times --  failed to include any comments about the rifle, which can be clearly seen in the video of the speech posted by Iran’s Press TV.
Khamenei held a similar rifle during a previous speech in October, 2006 and possibly more times that have not been documented.

Gov't Seeks to Revoke Citizenship of Oregon Imam for Radical Ties
Officials say he had ties with Osama Bin Laden, fought with jiahdis in AFghanistan and founded a group that funneled money to terrorists.
Wed, July 22, 2015
An imam in Oregon has been accused of failing to reveal his past associations with Islamist extremists in his application for U.S. citizenship.   

Mohamed Sheikh Abdirahman Kariye, originally from Somalia, became a U.S. citizen in 1998. Government lawyers says Kariye had direct dealings with Osama Bin Laden and Abdullah Azzam, the founders of Al Qaeda, and that while in the U.S., he  recruited members for the radical group Maktab Al-Khidamat (a precursor to Al Qaeda).   
U.S. authorities also say Kariye was a founding officer and director of the Global Relief Foundation, which funded Al Qaeda and other terror groups.
After he came to the U.S. on a student visa in 1982, he then went to Afghanistan, where he attended a jihadi training camp and fought with jihadis against the Soviets.  According to the immigration charges against him, he helped funnel fighters in Pakistan to jihad training camps. He was eventually arrested for these acitvities and spent four months in prison in Pakistan.
Kariye served for many years at Portand’s largest mosque, Masjed As-Saber. He was arrested in 2002 and pleaded guilty to using a false social security number and defrauding the state Medicaid program by lying about his income to receive state-funded health insurance. He was sentenced to five years on probation.

Kariye was put on a no-fly list and was one of a group of people who successfully sued the government to reveal why an individual is placed on the list.

No charges are being brought against Kariye. However, authorities seek to revoke his citizenship.

Islamic State Publishes First Child-Beheader Video
A boy around 10 years old beheaded a captured regime air force captain in the city of Homs, the first time ISIS has used a child in a beheading video.

ISIS: Crucifixion and Cages for Eating on Ramadan
The Islamic State has carried out its first beheading using a child as an executioner. Its latest grisly clip shows a boy around 10 beheading an Assad-regime pilot.

The video, entitled The Capture and Assassination of the Nusayri Captain opens with a graphic indicating the location: Homs. It is a sign of the Islamic State’s film sophistication that they use different opening titles depending on the location of the film.
The pilot gives a short summary of his life and career as an a air force captain in Bashar al-Assad’s forces, before he is shown in an orange jumpsuit kneeling, awaiting his death.
A bearded jihadist gives a short speech threatening “Our goal is not only Palmyra or Homs or Damascus, rather our goal is to conquer Bayt al- Maqdes [Jerusalem] and Rome, God willing.”
The boy then takes his knife and beheads the prisoner, showing no mercy or compunction about the killing.
This is not the first time ISIS has used children as executioners.  Known as the ‘cubs of the Caliphate’ the children of the Islamic State are training and indoctrinated in special camps with the stated goal of producing the next generation of jihadists. Children were used to shoot groups of captured regime soldiers in Palmyra, in a staged mass execution in the old roman amphitheater.
Footage has also just come to light of a 10-year-old boy taking part in last year’s massacre in Tikrit, during which some 1,600 captured Iraqi soldiers were shot and their bodies dumped in the Tigris or buried in mass graves.
The indoctrination of children is a key element in the Islamic State’s strategy. By having them perform these horrific acts at such a young age, ISIS cements its hold over their minds.
Warning, extremely graphic footage:

VOICES FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

Yahya Assiri: The Saudi Regime Must Change or It Must Go
Yahya Assiri is a former Saudi air force officer, now the head of ALQST, which fights for human rights and a written constitution in Saudi Arabia.
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Tue, July 14, 2015
Yahya Assiri was once a wealthy air force officer in Saudi Arabia, he now lives as a political refugee in the United Kingdom. He runs ALQST, his own human rights group through an underground network of activists back at home.

He spent years living a double life in Saudi Arabia. By day he would work on international arms deals for the Saudi military, but by night he would be in online forums discussing problems of poverty, unemployment and repression.
Yahya was born in 1980 in Asir province, a region in south-west Saudi Arabia where indigenous tribes fiercely resisted the 20th century unification of Saudi Arabia under the Wahhabi-allied al-Saud family.
As well as heading ALQST, he currently works as a volunteer in the Middle East and North Africa division of Amnesty International, while studying for his Masters in Human Rights and Political Communications at Kingston University, London. 
He graciously agreed to speak with Clarion Project Research Fellow Elliot Friedland about human rights in Saudi Arabia and his tireless work in support of that cause.
Clarion Project: Walk us through a day in the life of ALQST (as far as you are able)?

Yahya Assiri: The days begin early. It begins with checking emails, reply to them and dealing with any urgent issues. We check the status of situations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and follow up on it with our on-the-ground volunteers. We publish reports as and when needed.
This often involves using one of our translators to translate it from Arabic to English and then it is sent off to our researchers to verify and correct. We do a lot of interviews with the media and this is great because the situation in KSA is simply deteriorating.
So the more publicity we have, the better. We plan our next move, for example which campaigns we will focus on. Every day is different; you never know what will happen.

 2
Clarion: What do you hope to achieve through Al-Qst?
Assiri: Our aim at ALQST is to make a significant impact on the deteriorating human rights situation in KSA, which ultimately has a ripple effect on the rest of the Middle East.
Our aim is to curb government violations of human rights, which it perpetrates against its own citizens, and to spread the values of human rights in society.
We seek to advocate for human worth and dignity, to stand up for all basic human rights and fundamental freedoms, by using all legitimate and non-violent means. ALQST stands up for victims of injustice regardless of their race, gender, opinions or any other considerations.  
3
Clarion: Can you tell us about the name you chose? What does it mean? Why did you choose it?

Assiri: AL-QST in arabic translate to 'justice' in english and it is written in the Quran several times.
This is to show the Saudi people that human rights do not contradict Islamic teachings, as the government erroneously likes to  claim.

Clarion: What in your eyes is the biggest obstacle to human rights in Saudi Arabia?

Assiri: Lots of things, but the main one has to be the regime. It is an absolute monarchy which does not allow its citizens to participate in the way their own country is run.
They use Islam as an excuse to exploit its own people. This is in contradiction to fundamental Islamic teachings. 
5
Clarion: Do you think that human rights can be achieved while still keeping the monarchy and the regime in place? 

Assiri: Only if the regime and the monarchy are willing to make reforms immediately and without conditions, including having a written constitution.
Without these basic changes, it is near enough impossible to envision keeping the monarchy in place.
