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

TOP IRANIAN GENERAL TO US: WE WILL CUT YOUR 'HANDS AND FINGERS'
A senior commander of the Iranian Rev. Guards Corps threatens the U.S. while members of Congress pledge support to the controversial nuclear deal.
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

A British woman has lost custody of her five year old son after a ruling by a sharia court in Dubai. The hearing was held in her absence and centered around her alleged disobedience to her ex-husband, completely ignoring his domineering and controlling behavior.
That was two years ago and she has not seen her son since. Now she has come forward to speak about her ordeal.

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.
BY RYAN MAURO Thu, August 6, 2015
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. 
U.S. President Barack Obama with the former King of Saudi Arabia Abdullah. The flag of the Kingdom, pictured, is emblazoned with the...

4
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.

'ISIS Blows Up Baby in Training Class Demo'
Dozens of Islamic State recruits watched as the baby was blown up by remote control.
Mon, July 13, 2015
In one of its cruelest acts to date, Islamic State reportedly blew up a baby to show members how to handle explosives.

The incredible incident took place in Iraq's Diyala Province on July 10, according to provincial Security Committee Chairman Sadiq el-Husseini. He detailed the event to the local Arabic-language A-Sumeriah News.
The baby’s father was apparently executed just weeks ago, after he allegedly took part in the killing of an Islamic State member.
Sadiq el-Husseini
“The organization booby trapped the baby in front of dozens of armed ISIS men and then detonated it from afar,” Sadiq el-Husseini said. "The rigging of the baby and its detonation was a training exercise of ISIS to teach its people booby-trapping techniques.

“The organization doesn’t care about the most basic human values. Their crimes are incalculable and the blowing up of the baby is the best proof to the threat of ISIS’ ideology to the state.”

IRANIAN CITY OFFERS COMBAT TRAINING PROGRAM FOR KIDS
The purpose of the program is 'to introduce to the children the concepts of holy defense, knowledge of the enemy and fighting the Saudis and America.'
Thu, July 9, 2015
The municipality in the city of Mashhad (a large city in northeastern Iran) has launched a combat training program for children called the City of Quranic Games and Resistance. The program was under the supervision of clerics from the Iranian system of hawzas, Shiite religious seminaries.
According to the official site of the Mashhad municipality, “The purpose of this program that began a few days ago is to introduce the children to the concepts of resistance, war, holy defense, knowledge of the enemy and fighting Saudi Arabia and America.”
The children are training in groups of 10-15 in seven different types of martial arts. They wear military uniforms with headbands bound across their foreheads with the word “resistance” written on them.
Iranian human-rights activists say the program is to prepare the children to be jihadis similar to how ISIS is training children in Iraq and Syria.

EXTREMISTS VIE FOR KEY POSITIONS IN BRITISH POLITICS
In the wake of Britain's election, candidates with ties to anti-Semitic extremists and terror groups are standing for important positions.
Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn (left) is vying for head of the party. He has sympathies for Hezbollah and Hamas, among other Islamists. George Galloway (pictured on the left side of the picture on the right) is running for mayor of London and is seen here hugging Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in Gaza.
This article appeared originally in GatestoneInstitute.org

In the wake of Britain's general election, candidates with ties to anti-Semitic extremists and terror groups are standing for important political positions.
In May, George Galloway declared that he was vying to become Mayor of London. Those concerned with Galloway's work with the Syrian and Iranian regimes expressed dismay at the news.
Now, a month later, the Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn is running for leadership of Britain's Labour Party, with the support of George Galloway.
In 2010, Britain's media watchdog, OFCOM, censured Galloway and Corbyn, after Corbyn appeared on Galloway's television program -- broadcast by the Iranian regime's channel, Press TV. OFCOM ruled that Galloway's description of Israel as a "terrorist gangster ... miscreant, law breaking, rogue, war launching, occupying state," and Corbyn's call for economic sanctions against the world's only Jewish state, "did not show due impartiality."
Galloway has long been able to rely on Corbyn for support in the House of Commons. In 2013, Galloway tabled a motion to commemorate the death of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, which was seconded by Corbyn.
Corbyn's views, however, amount to far more than mere anti-Israel hysteria and a fondness for South American dictators.

IRAN LENDS EXTRA $1 BILLION TO SYRIA'S EMBATTLED ASSAD
The Islamic Republic is set to receive one hundred billion in sanctions relief post-deal, of which it is likely to spend large sums on terror activities.
The Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad accepted a $1 billion line of credit from Iran, according the state run news agency SANA.

The money is the second credit line extended by Iran, which previously lent Assad $1 billion in 2013. That money is now running out.
The agreement was signed between the state-owned Syrian Commerical Bank and the Export Development Bank of Iran. Both are state owned.
CNN reported the money is to “buy goods and fund projects.”
The news of the credit extension came as it was revealed Iran stands to receive $100 billion from sanctions relief should a nuclear deal be signed.
It is feared the money Iran will have access to through sanctions relief will enable Iran to pour far greater resources into supporting Assad and terrorist groups throughout the region
A U.S. State Department official told the Daily Beast “We are of course aware and concerned that, despite the massive domestic spending needs facing Iran, some of the resulting sanctions relief could be used by Iran to fund destabilizing actions.”

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK
The Islamist group Jaish al-Islam turned the tables on the Islamic State in a new propaganda video in which the group executes 18 ISIS fighters.
A video has been released by Jaish al-Islam, an Islamist faction fighting in Syria, in which it executes 18 Islamic State prisoners but with a twist in the color scheme.

The video was made in response to the Islamic State, which has publicly executed Jaish al-Islam members in the past. 
The lead up to the execution includes interviews with captured Islamic State fighters who confess to fighting mainly against other rebel groups and failing to fight Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
They deny the charge that Jaish al-Islam members are apostates, instead accusing the Islamic State of being heretics and apostates. They claim that they are the true jihadists.
It is important to note that Jaish al-Islam is itself an Islamist Salafist group which ultimately seeks to establish an Islamic State governed by sharia law.
The execution reverses the power dynamic of the Islamic State’s videos by revesing the color scheme. The Jaish al-Islam fighters wear orange, while their Islamic State prisoners, kneeling and chained, wear black, a clear allusion to the orange jumpsuits typically worn by victims in the Islamic State’s videos.
They also sing a song to the same tune as We Have the Swords, an Islamic State song used in several of their execution videos. The lyrics are changed to be critical of ISIS. 
Charlie Winter, a jihadist researcher for the Quilliam Foundation, said Jaish al-Islam almost certainly made the video a while ago, but released it to attack the Islamic State at this time.

10 Ways Iran Has Gutted the Nuclear Deal
Iran is trying to maneuver the West into signing a deal that effectively lets the Islamic Republic call the shots.
No Inspections of Military Sites

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei recently and unequivocally ruled out any inspections of its military sites.  Such inspections were also ruled out by Iranian Chief of Staff Major-General Hassan Firouzabadi, who said visits by U.N. inspectors to Iranian military sites are "forbidden" and a "red line.” The Iranian parliament just proposed legislation banning inspection of any nuclear site that goes beyond “conventional” (i.e. non-military) visits.
However, a group of bipartisan experts, including Olli Heinonen, the former deputy director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), say without the resolution of  the possible nuclear dimensions (PMD) of Iran’s nuclear program – which necessarily would entail inspections – the agreement essentially allows Iran to remain a “nuclear threshold state.”
Immediate Cancellation of All Sanctions
Khamenei also recently demanded sanctions relief begin immediately upon the signing of the agreement. However, according to U.S. law, once an agreement is signed, sanctions cannot be lifted until the U.S. Congress reviews the document. Congress has 30 days to review any agreement.
Moreover, even when sanctions are lifted, a fact sheet issued by the U.S. State Department about the deal claims the sanctions will "snapback" instantly in response to Iranian violations of the deal. But tough international sanctions are not like a light-switch that can be flicked on and off.
The Iranian regime is already enticing Western companies with the prospect of lucrative contracts. Governments around the world will likely be willing to tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran when the dollars start rolling in to their economies.
No Speaking to Nuclear Scientists
Iran has nixed any speaking to its nuclear scientists by Western inspectors. “They say the right to interview nuclear scientists must be given,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, according to his website. “This means interrogation. I will not let foreigners come and talk to scientists and dear children of the nation who have developed this science up to this level.”
Yet, these “interrogations” are essential for the West to get a clear picture of the military component of Iran’s nuclear program. Documents suggest Iran has researched and made significant progress on nuclear warheads, nuclear ignition systems and other technologies related to nuclear warfare.
Restriction on Inspections
A recently released report, Verifying a Final Nuclear Deal with Iran, written by the former deputy director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Olli Heinonen, states that for the agreement to be effective in real terms, verifiability must be a function of “unfettered,” “anywhere, anytime” access and not subject to any bureaucratic procedures which would give Iran time to alter the results of any inspections.
Yet, the Iranian parliament recently proposed legislation forbidding inspection that goes beyond “conventional” visits. Although this is clearly a way of banning inspections of military sites, the sponsor of the bill, Alaedin Boroujerdi, chairman of parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said his bill was designed to insulate Iran’s negotiators from the West’s “excessive demands.” 
No Freezing R&D
According to the framework agreement hammered out in Lausanne, Switzerland in April, Iran agreed to "limit domestic enrichment capacity and research and development... for ten years."
Yet last week, in a live speech televised across Iran, the Ayatollah declared, “Freezing Iran's research and development (R&D) for a long time, like 10 or 12, years is not acceptable.”
Limiting research and development of Iran’s nuclear technology is mentioned four separate times in the framework agreement, with R&D on advanced centrifuges under a 15-year R&D ban.
Retention of Centrifuges
Under the deal, Iran will decrease the amount of operating centrifuges however, not a single one will be destroyed. Iran's insistence on keeping the centrifuges is strong evidence that it wants to preserve the ability to produce nuclear weapons.
The Institute for Science and International Security says Iran can build nuclear weapons in six to 12 months with only 2,000 to 4,000 centrifuges operating.
Former CIA analyst Fred Fleitz also puts these numbers into perspective. He writes: "5,000 centrifuges are far too many for other peaceful purposes such as producing medical isotopes or fuel plates for the Tehran research reactor. Moreover, it would be far more economical for Iran to purchase reactor fuel rods, fuel plates, and medical isotopes from other countries."
Continuation of Uranium Enrichment
Iran will only enrich its uranium to a level of 3.67 percent. However, in the words of Iranian President Hasan Rouhani, "The country that can enrich to 3.5 percent will also have the capability to enrich it to about 90 percent.”
The initial enrichment to 3.5 percent is actually the hardest part of the enrichment process. It is 7/10ths of the way to becoming bomb fuel. Iran can make enrich to the 90 percent level in about 4.5 months, while others put the time frame as short as six weeks.
Retention of Uranium Stocks
Iran is refusing to ship some of its current uranium stock outside of the country. The State Dept.’s fact sheet says Iran will "reduce" its uranium stockpile of 10,000 kg to 300 kg but this isn't as positive as it sounds.
Previously, reducing this stockpile meant Iran converted this low-enriched uranium into an oxide unsuitable for nuclear weapons production. However, it can be converted back easily.
Two experts from the Washington Institute for Near East Policy and Belfer Centre for Science and International Affairs write, “The notion that this puts the material ‘beyond use for bombs’ is simply wrong. The conversion of oxide back to uranium hexafluoride (UF6) gas is not ‘time-consuming,’ is not necessarily ‘detectable,’ and is not particularly ‘technically demanding.’ ”
Retention of Nuclear Sites
Under the deal, Iran is allowed to keep every single nuclear site in place, even the underground Fordow site that was almost certainly constructed for making nuclear weapons.
There will no longer be uranium enrichment at the Fordow site, but 1,044 centrifuges will remain and only be used in the context of a nuclear physics center.
What this means it that if Iran decides to scrap the deal, it can still transport uranium to Fordow and immediately begin enriching with those centrifuges. The site can accommodate 3,000 centrifuges, so about another 2,000 could be shipped in and installed.
Breakout Time Deception
The deal is hinged on the fact that, under the agreement’s restrictions, the time that Iran needs to build a bomb will increase from the current estimate of two months to one year.
However, this claim was recently and unequivocally refuted by Professor Alan Kuperman, coordinator of the Nuclear Proliferation Prevention Project at the University of Texas at Austin.
In an article recently published in The New York Times, Kuperman proves that with the number of centrifuges Iran is allowed to retain under the agreement, combined with the amount of enriched uranium it takes to make a bomb, the Iranian breakout time under the agreement would only be three months.

Women's 'Rights' in Iran: 5 Laws That Will Appall You
Britain is facing an "unprecedented" threat from hundreds of battle-hardened jihadists who have been trained in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, according to MI5, the domestic counter-intelligence and security agency. It warns that are now more Britons trained in terrorism than at any point in recent memory.

More than 700 Britons are believed to have travelled to Syria and Iraq, according to British authorities. Over half of these Britons are thought to have since returned home, where they pose a significant threat to national security.
Britain's terrorism threat alert is at the second-highest level of "severe," meaning an attack is "highly likely."
MI5's warnings are included in a major new report on the regulation of surveillance powers. Also known as the Anderson Report, the 380-page document was written by the UK's Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, David Anderson QC. The report states:
"MI5 has pointed out some of the recent factors which reinforce their concerns about the terrorist threat. Terrorist related arrests are up 35% compared to 2010. The number who have travelled to Syria and undertaken terrorist training since 2012 is already higher than has been seen in other 21st century theatres, such as Pakistan/Afghanistan, East Africa and Yemen.
"The threat posed on their return comprises not just attack planning but radicalization of associates, facilitation and fundraising, all of which further exacerbate the threat. The number of UK-linked individuals who are involved in or been exposed to terrorist training and fighting is higher than it has been at any point since the 9/11 attacks in 2001. MI5 regard this aspect of the threat as unprecedented. Some travelers were previously unknown to MI5.
"The volume and accessibility of extremist propaganda has increased. UK-based extremists are able to talk directly to ISIL fighters and their wives in web forums and on social media. The key risk is that this propaganda is able to inspire individuals to undertake attacks without ever traveling to Syria or Iraq. Through these media outputs, ISIL have driven the increase in unsophisticated attack methodology seen in recent months in Australia, France and Canada.
The report reveals that MI5 has successfully disrupted two attack plots by lone wolves in the past nine months, both in the late stages of preparation. According to MI5, "identifying such individuals is increasingly challenging, exacerbated by the current limitations in their technical capabilities."
Separately, the UK's lead police officer on counter-terrorism, Mark Rowley, announced the latest arrest figures — nearly one every day — which underline the scale of the challenge British police are facing to tackle the jihadist threat.
According to Rowley, there were a record 338 arrests for terrorism-related offenses in the last financial year (April 2014 to March 2015), a 33% increase on the 254 arrests in the previous year. He said that 157 (46%) of the arrests were linked to Syria, and 56 were under 20 years of age, an "emerging trend."
Rowley said that 79% of those arrested were British nationals and 11% were female. He added that 50% of the arrests were made in London and that roughly 50% of those arrested were later charged (up from around 40% in previous years). The arrests ranged from fundraising for jihadist groups to facilitation, preparation and execution of terrorist attack plans.
Rowley also said that each week the Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU), which assesses terrorist and violent extremist material on the Internet, removes on average over 1,000 pieces of content that breaches the Terrorism Act 2006. Approximately 800 of these items are related to the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq and are posted on multiple platforms. According to Rowley:
"ISIL and other terrorist groups are trying to direct attacks in the UK; encouraging British citizens to travel to Syria to fight and train; and are seeking, through propaganda, to provoke individuals in the UK to carry out violent attacks here."
"There is no doubt of the horrific nature of the offenses being committed overseas. The influence of those who wish to bring similar violence to the streets of the UK has been an increasing threat here. The rise in level of activity is matched by increased action by police and security services, who are currently working on hundreds of active investigations. We cannot be complacent."
Meanwhile, Britain's most senior Muslim police officer, Scotland Yard commander Mak Chishty, has warned that Islamist propaganda is so potent that it is influencing children as young as five, and that many more British Muslims are likely to end up being lured into becoming jihadists either at home or abroad.
In an interview with the Guardian newspaper, Chishty said there was an urgent need to "move into the private space" of Muslims to prevent youth from becoming radicalized. He called on friends and family to intervene much earlier, and to watch for subtle changes in behavior, including expressions of anti-Western sentiment. He said:
"We need to now be less precious about the private space. This is not about us invading private thoughts, but acknowledging that it is in these private spaces where this [extremism] first germinates. The purpose of private-space intervention is to engage, explore, explain, educate or eradicate. Hate and extremism is not acceptable in our society, and if people cannot be educated, then hate and harmful extremism must be eradicated through all lawful means."
Chishty defined "private space" as "anything from walking down the road, looking at a mobile, to someone in a bedroom surfing the net, to someone in a shisha cafe talking about things."
Chishty said that jihadist propaganda is so powerful that he fears his own children might be vulnerable. He said his message to fellow Muslim parents was: "I am not immunized. If I feel the need to be extra vigilant, then I think you need to feel the need to be extra vigilant."
Referring to three teenage girls from a school in Bethnal Green, east London, who slipped away from their families in February to join the Islamic State in Syria, he said he found it impossible to believe the claims by their families that there had been no clues that the girls were becoming radicalized. "My view as a parent is there must have been signs," he said.
According to Chishty, current counter-radicalization strategies are not working. "We are in unchartered water.... We are facing a risk, a threat which is global, which is powerfully driven by social media, reaching you on your own through your mobile phone."
Some of Chishty's ideas highlight the challenge of finding a balance between confronting jihadist propaganda and criminalizing free speech.
A new Counter-Extremism Bill — which the government says is needed to combat groups and individuals who "undermine British values" — is facing mounting criticism that it is too draconian.
The new legislation would introduce so-called Banning Orders for extremist groups that seek to "undermine democracy or use hate speech in public places." It would also give the government new powers to restrict individuals who seek to radicalize youth, and powers to close premises where extremists seek to influence others.
The bill would strengthen the powers of the Charity Commission to root out charities that misappropriate funds towards extremism and terrorism. It would also place immigration restrictions on extremists, and strengthen the ability of Ofcom, the communications regulator, to take action against channels that broadcast extremist content.
The legislation is partly aimed at providing the government with the tools needed to silence Islamic extremists such as Anjem Choudary, who has long called for the implementation of Islamic Sharia law in Britain. Although Choudary is believed to have inspired dozens of young British Muslims to carry out violence in the name of Islam, his training as a lawyer has helped him to stay one step ahead of the law and out of prison.
But the new bill is facing stiff opposition from a variety of individuals who fear the bill will give too much power to the state.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Haras Rafiq, the director of the Quilliam Foundation, an anti-extremism think tank, said the new bill would "do the very things the extremists want us to. With these Orwellian, totalitarian powers, we are playing into their hands." He added:
"It is very noticeable that the main Islamist groups are not really up in arms about this. They want it, because it will feed the narrative of grievance and victimhood they love. They will be able to use it to say, look, we told you so."
Rafiq described the proposed powers as "ridiculous" and "unworkable" and said that even if they survived the passage through Parliament, they would be struck down by the courts. "That will be embarrassing and a victory for the extremists," he said.
The Telegraph also reported that senior government advisors are opposed to the bill. A counter-extremism specialist at the Home Office's de-radicalization program, Rashad Ali, said:
"You can't protect democracy by undermining democracy. The Government is obsessed with legislation but this is not something you can defeat by legislation. It is a battle of ideas and we have to defeat these ideas by argument, not by banning even having the debate. What we need, far more than any new law, is a counter-argument and a policy which can inspire [Muslim] society to defeat extremist ideas."
The former foreign office minister and shadow home secretary David Davis said that "restricting free speech, and forcing those who hold views inimical to our own into the shadows, is an authoritarian act that will only serve to further alienate those susceptible to extremist views."
The government's new Business Secretary, Sajid Javid, in a leaked letter to Home Secretary Theresa May, warned that the law would turn Ofcom into a state "censor."
Alan Craig, the leader of a campaign against the proposed "London Olympic mega-mosque" at West Ham, is also opposed to the new bill. He said:
"David Cameron seems to think that banning orders, extremist disruption orders and draconian laws are the way to tackle Choudary's ideological venom. But such legislation simply endangers the UK's democratic liberties and freedom of speech. It is far better openly to expose — and mock — the fictitious fabricated roots of Choudary's fundamentalist ideology. It is this way that Choudary will slowly but surely lose his malign influence over so many impressionable young minds."
British Prime Minister David Cameron has defended the bill. "For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone," he said. "It's often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that's helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance." He added:
"This government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach. As the party of one nation, we will govern as one nation, and bring our country together. That means actively promoting certain values... And it means confronting head-on the poisonous Islamist extremist ideology. Whether they are violent in their means or not, we must make it impossible for the extremists to succeed."
The bill's passage is not a foregone conclusion. Cameron's new government has a majority of just 10 MPs in the House of Commons, and holds 228 of the 787 seats in the House of Lords. MPs are likely to propose and debate amendments to the government's proposals

US: IRAN'S SUPPORT FOR TERROR UNDIMINISHED
Despite the newly released report, the State Department says it is still entirely committed to pursuing a nuclear deal with Iran.
Sun, June 21, 2015
Despite the fact that Iran’s global terror activities were “undiminished” between 2013 and 2014, the U.S. State Department is still entirely committed to pursuing a nuclear deal with Iran.

“We think it’s essential that we pursue those negotiations,” said Tina Kaidanow, the State Department’s coordinator for counterterrorism, as quoted in The Wall Street Journal. “None of that implies that we would be, again, in any way taking our eye off the ball with respect to what Iran is doing as a supporter of terrorism.”
Iran’s support for terror was documented in the State Dept.’s annual report on global terrorism, which was released Friday. The report says “Iran’s state sponsorship of terrorism worldwide remained undiminished,” which makes the State Dept. “very, very concerned,” according to Kaidanow. 
While the June 30 deadline for the deal is now fewer than 10 days away, the release of the report shows, “Iran continued to sponsor terrorist groups around the world," according to Kaidanow.  
The report specifically mentions Iran’s continued support for the Shiite terror organization Hezbollah in Lebanon as well as those fighting with embattled Syrian President Bashaar al-Assad.
The Clarion Project reported last week that Iran is supporting more than 100 terrorist organizations in Syria and Iraq alone.
In an interview with The Atlantic, U.S. President Barack Obamas admitted that some of the money freed up the deal’s proposed sanction relief may up going towards terrorism, although he argued that Iranian government would have to make good on their commitments to improve the country’s economy.
“I don’t think …anybody in this administration said that no money will go to the military as a consequence of sanctions relief,” Obama said. “The question is, if Iran has $150 billion parked outside the country, does the IRGC automatically get $150 billion? Does that $150 billion then translate by orders of magnitude into their capacity to project power throughout the region? And that is what we contest …”

'Iran Supporting More than 100 Shiite Terror Groups'
Al Hayat, one of the most-respected pan-Arab-language dailies, charges that Iran is supporting more than 100 Shiite extremist organizations.
Wed, June 17, 2015
A recent report in Al Hayat, one of the largest and most-respected pan-Arab dailies, charges that Iran is supporting more than 100 Shiite extremist organizations and militias in Syria and Iraq.
The newspaper, which is published in London and funded by Saudi Arabia, says the crimes of these groups are no less horrific than those of the Islamic State.
In Iraq, the Iranian-funded armed militias comprised of Persians have capabilities far beyond those of the Iraqi security forces. The paper quotes academics who commented that the purpose of these militias is to target the Arabs in Iraq, both Sunni and Shiite.
In the Arab world, there is anger that the international media is ignoring the atrocities being committed by these militias. Hussein Al Muayid, an Iraqi religious scholar and advisor to the general secretary of the Muslim World League, pointedly questioned why the media as well as political figures focus only on the activities of the terror activities of Sunni organizations. Muayid claims such selective reporting serves to makes an implicit statement that the Sunni world is responsible for all the terror in the world.
In addition, while governments, experts and clerics issuing fatwas are refusing to give any aid to these Sunni terror organizations, Muayid says Shiite militias, which perpetrate the most horrific acts, enjoy the support of the Iranian ayatollahs, the highest religious authorities in Iran, and the financial and military support of the Islamic republic.
Western researchers and Arab analysts believe that Iran is supporting more than 50 militias in Iraq and another 50 in Syria whose atrocities are not less than those of the Islamic State.

VOICES FORHUMAN RIGHTS AFRAH NASSER: WE'RE IN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES OF THIS REVOLUTION

BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Mon, June 15, 2015
Afrah Nasser is a Yemeni blogger and activist currently living in exile in Sweden. She spoke with Clarion about the war and life in exile. Afrah Nasser is an internationally renowned Yemeni journalist, blogger and human rights activist, who writes about human rights issues and the political developments in Yemen since early 2010.
Nasser rose to prominence during Yemen’s 2011 uprising telling the untold stories on the ground. After receiving death threats for her anti-regime writings she became a political refugee in Sweden in May 2011. Her writings have appeared in various publications, including CNN, Institute for War and Peace Reporting, Doha Center for Free Media, The National and Al Arabi magazine.She has appeared as a guest commentator on the BBC, Al-Jazeera, France24 and other networks. Clarion Project: Can you briefly summarize the situation in Yemen for people who may not understand what’s going on?

Afrah Nasser: It is a double-conflict, there is both an external and an internal conflict going on at the same time. The external conflict is of regional powers jockeying for position, and the internal conflict is between the myriad of different factions fighting on the ground. I lived through the 1994 civil war and I have never seen anything like this.
I would urge everyone to call it a war, not fighting or conflict – it really is a war that is going in. In some ways one could argue that what’s happening is worse than Syria, although it’s obviously not a competition.
Yemen was already a much more impoverished place and this war is taking an extreme toll.

STATE DEPT MEMO: 'OUR NARRATIVE IS BEING TRUMPED BY ISIL'S'
A US State Department memo has revealed that senior civil servants believe the US is failing to delegitimize the Islamic State narrative.
Tue, June 16, 2015
An internal U.S. State Department memo, published by The New York Times, has revealed that the U.S. believes the Islamic State is winning the war of ideas and narrative.
The memo, written by the under secretary for public diplomacy and public affairs Richard Stengal, criticizes the coalition of countries aligned against the Islamic State for failing to provide a coherent and unified message to counter that of the terror group.
The memo reads, “the coalition does not communicate well internally or externally.” It says that the “messaging working group” of the U.S., the U.K. and the U.A.E “has not really come together.”
The memo criticizes far more harshly the external message. “When it comes to the external message, our narrative is being trumped by ISIL’s," it states. "We are reactive – we think about ‘counter-narratives’ not ‘our narrative.’"
The memo proposed the creation of a “full time coalition communications hub” based in the Middle East, which would “do daily and weekly messaging around coalition activities and counter-ISIL.”

EX-CIA HEAD: IRAN IS GENOCIDAL, THEOCRATIC, IMPERIAL, TOTALITARIAN

Former CIA director James Woolsey launched an unprecedented attack on Tehran during a Clarion Project conference call June 15.
Iran's leaders are "theocratic, totalitarian, genocidal, imperial liars," according to former head of the CIA James Woolsey.
Speaking on a conference call organized by the Clarion Project, Woolsey said he would rather deal with the Soviets he met across the negotiating table decades ago than talk to Tehran. 
"They weren't theocratic fanatics," he said of his Soviet interlocutors. 
Listen to Woolsey's comments.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyn4IaMJPhQ
Woolsey now chairs the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, which not only looks at Tehran's nuclear program but also its human-rights record.
"Iran is hanging political dissidents every day," he told reporters and an international audience. "The problem is not the Iranian people," he said.
He urged Western powers to encourage average Iranians to "stand up to their 'masters'," and believes with external support Iranians could succeed where their attempted revolution failed in 2009
However, it was the Iranian nuclear file that dominated Woolsey's remarks. He fears Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei will insist for example that any deal does not include U.N. inspections of military facilities.

150 ISIS SEX SLAVES COMMIT SUICIDE, SOME FED TO DOGS

The harrowing tale of one girl repeatedly raped, sent to a slave market and who then committed suicide is just the tip of a horrific iceberg.
Thu, June 18, 2015
At least 150 Yazidi women and girls killed themselves after they were forced to become Islamic State sex slaves, according to a woman working with some of the survivors who managed to escape.
In one of the most comprehensive accounts of the effects of Islamic State brutality, details emerged of the ordeals faced by hundreds of Yazidi women, very often after their male relatives were butchered by Islamic State members.
Irifan Mahdi, who is trying to help the women rehabilitate into some semblance of normative society spoke of the horrors in an interview with the Sputnik news organization’s Arabic website.

WOMEN'S 'RIGHTS' IN IRAN: 5 LAWS THAT WILL APPALL YOU

Modesty requirements are enforced by the morality police, comprised of members of the Basij militia who patrol the streets enforcing sharia.
Women's rights are severely restricted in Iran. There are legal restrictions as well as heavily inculcated societal and cultural norms imposed on women
Legally, the following laws apply to women in the Islamic Republic of Iran:
The husband is the head of the family, and his wife is legally bound to obey him. Article 1105 of the civil code states: “In relations between husband and wife, the position of the head of the family exclusively belongs to the husband."

1.A married woman cannot leave the country without her husband's permission.
2.A woman's testimony as a witness is worth half that of a man, in compliance with the sharia basis of the legal system.
3.In all public places, women must wear a hijab (headscarf) and loose fitting clothing (usually a chador, or loose coat, is required). Modesty requirements are enforced by the morality police.
4.Polygamy and temporary marriage are permitted for men (up to four wives are allowed, subject to certain restrictions), but not for women.
5.Women are frequently subject to honor killings. In cases where the father kills his daughter, he is not liable for the death penalty, but only for imprisonment. When someone is murdered, the family of the victim can forgive the murderer.

No deal is better than a bad deal. Stop a Nuclear Iran.

Hitler wanted to conquer the world and wipe-out Jews, gypsies, gays and others. 
 
At first, the world didn’t believe he was serious. But he proved us wrong and nearly won the war.   

Our generation didn’t have the chance to stop Hitler. World leaders didn't take Osama bin Laden seriously until after the 9/11 attacks. 
Now Iran wants nuclear weapons. Its leaders say “kill,” “mobilize to kill,” and “death to America.”  
 
We have the power to say “No to a Nuclear Iran.”

IRAN ARRESTS, TORTURES POLITICAL CARTOONIST - #FREEATENA
Atena Farghandani, 28, will stand trial for drawing a cartoon against a law that would severely restrict birth control for both men and women.
Thu, May 28, 2015
The Iranian regime will put on trial a 28-year old cartoonist for drawing a political cartoon against a law drafted last March that would severely restrict birth control for both men and women.
The cartoon portrayed legislators as animals casting their votes on the legislation.
Atena  Farghandani was arrested last August when her home was raided by the Revolutionary Guards. She was taken to Gharchak prison for four months where she said she was beaten and interrogated for up to nine hours a day.
During a brief release in December, she posted a video in Persian detailing her inhumane treatment and was rearrested. Close to two months later, Farghandani went on a hunger strike and suffered a heart attack. She has been kept in solitary confinement since that time.

CAIR DENOUNCES US MILITARY ON MEMORIAL DAY
For the second year in a row, Council on American Islamic Relations' depicted the US military as a band of "murderers."
BY RYAN MAURO Wed, May 27, 2015
he Clarion Project broke the story last year that two Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) officials were criticizing Memorial Day, resulting in FOX News coverage and expressions of outrage from Muslims who appreciate the sacrifices of U.S. soldiers. CAIR officials again criticized the holiday this year.
CAIR is a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity that was designated as a terrorist group by the United Arab Emirates in November. FBI wiretaps in 1993 reveal that CAIR was established to deceptively push the Islamist agenda. You can read more about CAIR's background here.
CAIR-San Francisco Executive Director Zahra Billoo tweeted extensively after several websites reported on the Clarion Project's report from last year. She defended her depictions of U.S. soldiers and compared the Israeli military to ISIS:

ISLAMIST RADICALS 'RECRUITED FREELY' AT BRITISH UNIVERSITY
A senior academic who worked at the University of Westminster said recruits were led "like lambs to the slaughter" while she was there from 2007 to 2012
Thu, May 28, 2015
.The University of Westminster in London allowed rampant recruitment by Islamist extremists, leading students “like lambs to the slaughter” according to a senior academic.

The University of Westminster is the alma mater of Mohammed Emwazi, better known to the world as Jihadi John, the Islamic State’s lead executioner.
Dr. Alexandra Stein is a social psychologist specializing in extremist groups who worked at Westminster University from 2007 to 2012.
“I’d seen a tremendous amount of recruiting going on," she told local media. "I had Muslim students tell me that they were being pressured in the toilets to cover up and wear the veil. Women were encouraged to sit at the back of the lecture hall.”
Stein said “During the time I certainly tried to raise this with the administration. Interestingly the administration tried to shut us down while letting the recruiters in. I felt terrible because these students were being led like lambs to the slaughter.”
She had attempted to organize a program to counter the influence of speakers from the radical group Hizb ut-Tahrir, which has the same goals of global Caliphate as the Islamic State, but takes a non-violent methodology.
But the Dean of students blocked her idea and continued to allow extremist speakers unfettered access to the University.
“They did try and shut the doors on the program” Stein said, “but their doors were opened up to Hizb-ut-Tahrir speakers who were not banned, so I’m very angry about that.”
The University said that it is now working to implement the government’s counter-extremism program.

WHY JUNE 2015 MATTERS
It's deadline time for negotiators of the Iranian nuclear program. It's also a month in which you can act. We'll let you know how.
BY DAVID HARRIS Thu, May 28, 2015
Iranian and Western negotiators resumed talks this week in Vienna, Austria with little over a month remaining until the June 30 deadline for a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program.

The rhetoric pouring out of the offices of the Islamic republic’s supreme leader, his government and military remains as acrimonious as ever, attacking the West in general and the United States in particular.
The language used is not that of posture ahead of negotiations in order to gain a better deal for Iran, but rather the rancorous, vindictive talk of a nation that cannot be trusted.
Among the choice morsels this week:
"The enemies are more familiar with the language of weapons and we also intend to confront them with the same language," said Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Major-General Mohammad Ali Jaafari
“Commander of the Iranian Al-Quds Brigades, Major General Qassem Suleimani accused the ‘anti-ISIL’ US-led coalition of supporting the ISIL terrorist group.”
"’The Iran-made S-300 (missile defense) system will be unveiled by the defense ministry and armed forces' engineers soon and will be tested before the eyes of everyone,’ chairman of the parliament's security committee Mohammad Reza Mohseni Sani told FNA.”
Amid this Iranian bluster, the French have taken a long, hard look at the Iranian’s more salient comments on the nuclear program and decided to take a step back for any potential bad deal.

“France will not accept a deal if it is not clear that inspections can be done at all Iranian installations, including military sites,” he told French lawmakers on May 27, urging other negotiating countries to follow suit.
Meanwhile, of course, Iran’s sponsoring of terrorism and despicable litany of human-rights abuses go unchecked.
June is a month in which Clarion Project and others will shout loud about the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program, its destructive role throughout the Middle East and beyond and arguably, worst of all, the way the regime treats its own citizens.
Look out for articles and features on our website, opportunities to hear from leading experts on Iran’s nuclear program, the launch of seven special short films on Iran’s nuclear programs and an activist website where YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
SAY NO TO A NUCLEAR IRAN. BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY.

'MODERATE' MUSLIM ORGS. LINE UP RADICALS FOR CONFERENCE
One of the largest Islamist gatherings took place over Memorial Day Weekend at the annual joint convention of two prominent organizations.
BY RYAN MAURO Wed, May 27, 2015
One of the largest Islamist gatherings happened in Baltimore over Memorial Day Weekend at the annual joint convention of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) and the  Muslim American Society (MAS).

Below is a partial list of the speakers included:
Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Like ISNA, CAIR was branded an unindicted co-conspirator in the trial of the Holy Land Foundation. During the trial, the Justice Department said CAIR is an entity of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, a secret body set up to support Hamas. A 1994 Muslim Brotherhood Palestine Committee meeting agenda organized a discussion to “future suggestions to develop the work of” CAIR.
Awad publicly supported the terrorist group Hamas as far back as 1994 and referred to Hamas as well as Hezbollah as “liberation movements” in an Arabic interview with Al-Jazeera in 2004. The FBI monitored his emails from 2006 to 2008.
Imam Siraj Wahhaj, whose history of extremist and anti-American incitement is almost too long to review. For example, in 1992, he said, “If only Muslims were clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a Caliphate. If we were united and strong, we’d elect our own emir and give allegiance to him. Take my word, if eight million Muslims unite in America, the country will come to us.”
His rhetoric became more cautious after the 9/11 attacks. In 2011, he preached, “The trap we fall into is having a premature discussion about Sharia when we are not there yet.” In November, the New York Police Department disclosed frightening information about his mosque’s activity to defend its intelligence-gathering practices.

Naeem Baig, President of ICNA. Under his leadership, ICNA has gone to bat for the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and pressured the U.S. government to stop the Bangladeshi government's crackdown on Jamaat-e-Islami, the Islamist parent group of ICNA. It was particularly upset over the execution of Jamaat-e-Islami leader for war crimes.
Baig is a signatory to the anti-ISIS letter that endorses the caliphate, Sharia governance and jihad against Israel and accused oppressors of Muslims. His group published a radical teaching guide for its members in 2009.
Sheikh Yusuf Islahi, whose biography boasts that he's been a member of the Indian branch of Jamaat-e-Islami since he was 25 years old and is a five-term member of its Central Advisory Committee. Islahi is the "chief patron" of ICNA's "Why Islam" campaign. He and the Jamaat-e-Islami he helps lead have a history of anti-Americanism and support for violent jihad.

Sheikh Mohammad Qatanani, the imam of the Hamas-linked Islamic Center of Passaic County. He was arrested and convicted by Israel in 1993 for being a member of Hamas and the Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood.
The Department of Homeland Security seeks his deportation because of his terrorist links and decision not to disclose his conviction on his green card application.
“It is certainly suspicious when a person who has been convicted of being a member of, and providing services, to Hamas, who has personal ties to a Hamas militant leader, and a Hamas fundraiser also sends undisclosed cash to the West Bank,” a 2008 court filing by Homeland Security explains.
In Arabic lectures between 2007 and 2009, he prayed for the defeat of “occupation and oppression” in Iraq, Palestine and Chechnya, inferring the U.S., Israel and Russia. He also said it is permissible for Muslims to donate to the families of suicide bombers and that Muslims should not criticize Yousef al-Qaradawi, the pro-terrorism spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Qatanani has also said that the U.S. needs to limit its free speech to stop “hate” speech towards Islam.

Jamal Badawi, formerly listed on ISNA’s website as a member of its Board of Directors, is personally listed as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land trial and is a founder of the Muslim American Society, another U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. His name is listed as a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood official in an internal document from 1992.
Badawi’s history includes endorsing suicide bombings and “combative jihad” and praising Hamas as “martyrs.” He is also close to Brotherhood spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi.

Sheikh Abdool Rehman Khan is the chairman of ICNA's Sharia Council and a member of the Fiqh Council of North America, which is dominated by Islamist radicals.  He used to be a scholar for the Islamic Foundation but was apparently fired, based on an online petition demanding his reinstatement.

Sheikh Omar Suleiman, a member of the ICNA Sharia Council. His bio states that he studied under Sheikh Salah As-Sawy and Dr. Hatem al-Haj. These are two Salafist clerics that lead the very radical Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America. The closest the organization can bring itself to foreswearing violent jihad is to oppose it because “the Islamic community does not possess the strength to engage in offensive jihad at this time [emphasis added].”
 
Imam Suhaib Webb is the former leader of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, whose teachings are largely based on Islamists like Muslim Brotherhoof spiritual leader Yousef al-Qaradawi and Sayyid Qutb, the Brotherhood cleric who influenced Osama Bin Laden as well as the Pakistani Islamist group, Jamaat-e-Islami. 

Webb says Muslims should refuse to work with the FBI unless the FBI restores its relationship with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. The FBI severed ties with due to evidence tying it to Hamas.
He also condemned secularism as a “radical, lunatic ideology…we’re talking about the loss of holy power in politics. It’s very difficult to find any place in the world now that is ruled by someone who is ruling by divine authority.” He said that only the Islam of Prophet Mohammed’s era is equipped for political rule today.

SEEKING TO SPARK SECTARIAN WAR, ISIS BOMBS SAUDI ARABIA
ISIS's first bombing there is a strategic move to spark upheaval in the Shiite-majority province that holds 90% of royal family's oil reserves
The Islamic State (ISIS) suicide bombing in Saudi Arabia on May 23 is significant in that it's the group's first claimed suicide bombing in the country, but it's also a strategic move to spark sectarian upheaval in the Shiite-majority province that holds 90% of royal family's oil reserves.
The Islamic State is trying to spark a cycle of sectarian violence that will destabilize Saudi Arabia and heighten the Royal Family's tension with Iran. The terror group thrives in environments where Shiites feel they need Iranian protection and where Sunnis feel threatened by real or imagined Iranian influence. The Saudi Eastern Province has the added benefit of endangering the Royal Family's most critical resource.
The bombing's objective is to spur Islamic State supporters in Saudi Arabia into action against the Shiites and the royal family. An October 2014 poll found that 5% of the Saudi population of 29 million has a positive opinion of the Islamic State (2% very positive and 3% somewhat positive).

HOW MUCH WOULD ISIS PAY FOR MICHELLE OBAMA AS A SEX SLAVE?
In the latest issue to its slick, English magazine Dabiq, a jihadi bride justifies sex slavery and names the group's price for Michelle Obama.
In the latest issue of The Islamic State’s slick, English-language magazine Dabiq, the terror group justifies taking captive women as sex slaves and promises to bring slave markets to the West.
With bravado, the magazine takes a dig at Michelle Obama, wife of U.S. President Barack Obama. "And who knows, maybe Michelle Obama’s price won’t even exceed a third of a dinar, and a third of a dinar is too much for her!"
One gold dinar is worth close to $600, however, it is unclear whether the magazine was referring to a gold, silver or copper dinar.
In an article titled “Slave-Girls or Prostitutes?” -- purportedly written by a jihadi bride named Umm Sumayyah Al-Muhajirah, the terror group says taking captive women and sex-slaves is justified according to Islamic theology and historical precedent.
The article argues being a sex slave is preferable to a life of "prostitution" – which is what the Islamic State thinks is the status of women in Western lands --and says that women who are taken as sex slaves should be therefore be grateful.



RUSSIAN MISSILE DEAL WITH IRAN MEANS 'MILITARY OPTION DEAD'
Western officials believe delivery of the system will essentially eliminate the military option to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
Tue, May 26, 2015
Iranian news sources are reporting that negotiations with Russia to buy the S-300 surface-to-air missile systems were “successful.”
Western officials say delivery of the system would essentially eliminate the military option to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
During a press conference Monday, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said that the missiles will be delivered as soon as possible.
Amir-Abdollahian spoke after a meeting with his Russian counterpart, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov, in Moscow.
Since 2007, Russia has repeatedly threatened to sell the system to Iran but relented under Western pressure. On April 13, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a presidential decree facilitating the sale of the missile system.

ISLAMIC STATE ENDANGERS RARE BIRD
One of the last breeding colonies of the bird in the world in Palmyra, Syria, has been driven away by fighting for Palmyra by the Islamic State.
The critically-endangered northern bald ibis may become extinct in the Middle East as a result of the capture of Palmyra by the Islamic State.
A small colony of just seven birds nestedin Palmyra in 2002, the only colony in the world outside of Morocco. 
There are now just four birds left despite government protection programs. They migrate annually and winter in Ethiopia.
The Society for the Protection of Nature in Lebanon offered a $1,000 reward for information about the wherabouts of the only female bird.
Named Zenobia, after an ancient Palmyrene Queen, she is the only wild bird who knows the migration route between Syria and the winter grounds in Ethiopia.

PLAYSTATION BOMBER STANDS TRIAL AS EUROJIHAD RISES
The trial for a 15-year old wanna-be jihadi is beginning in Austria. In Belgium, Antwerp's mayor has reportedly received "convert or die" threats.
A 15-year old boy charged with downloading bomb-making plans onto his playstation and conspiring to join Islamist terrorist groups in Syria has gone on trial in Austria.
He is charged with supporting a terrorist organization and planning to carry out a terrorist attack.
State prosecutors allege the boy, who has not been named because of his age, was in contact with Islamic State recruiters online and planned to carry out an attack in Vienna before his departure. He was 14-years old at the time of his arrest.
If convicted, he could be sentenced for up to five years in jail.
Elsewhere in Europe, the Mayor of Antwerp received a threat demanding he convert to Islam or he will be killed, according to local media reports. The mayor, Bart De Wever, told reporters he has no intention of converting.
The threat has not yet been confirmed as genuine.
In neighboring Holland, a group of parents whose children travelled Syria to join the jihadis fighting there are suing the state for failing to prevent their children from leaving the country.

24-YEAR OLDS FROM CALIFORNIA ARRESTED FOR TRYING TO JOIN ISIS
Authorities say the two men used social media to discuss the Islamic State and their plans to die fighting for the terror group.
Two 24-year-old men from Anaheim, California face a possible 15-year prison term for conspiring to provide material support to a terrorist group for their plans to join the Islamic State.
Muhanad Badawi and Nader Elhuzayel were tracked down partially through the monitoring of their social media accounts where they discussed their support for the Islamic State and terrorist attacks.
According to a recorded conversation, both had expressed “how it would be a blessing to fight for the cause of Allah, and to die in the battlefield.”
Both had also bought tickets to the Middle East.
Although the men confessed to the FBI, reports say they intend to plead not-guilty to the charges.

STRATEGIC FAILURES, THE US AND THE FALL OF RAMADI
The U.S. forgot the lessons of the 2007 as pleas from the Sunni and Kurdish tribes for direct aid to fight the Islamic State went unanswered.
BY RYAN MAURO Thu, May 21, 2015
The Islamic State (ISIS) has captured Ramadi, the capital of Iraq's Anbar Province, reportedly "terrifying" Iraqi officials who now foresee a "tsunami of international terror." It is an important achievement for the terrorist group aimed at pre-empting a potential Sunni tribal uprising.

The Sunni tribes in Anbar Province were critical to the success of the 2007 "surge" that ousted the Islamic State's predecessor, Al-Qaeda in Iraq. The deterioration in the relationship between these tribes and the central Iraqi government was likewise critical to the terrorists' comeback in Iraq.
The Islamic State remembered these lessons and acted quickly as the Iraqi government began training tribal fighters and the U.S. defense budget allotted $179 million to Kurdish and Sunni tribal forces. The U.S. forgot these lessons and has long rejected Sunni and Kurdish pleas for direct aid to fight the Islamic State.
The Obama Administration is now planning to change course and directly arm and train the Iraqi Sunni tribes after the fall of Ramadi. The White House previously chose to work only through the central Iraqi government that has given the Kurds and Sunnis inadequate support.
A delegation of 11 Sunni tribal leaders, including Sheikh Ahmed Abu Risha, the President of the Anbar Awakening Council, flew to the U.S. on January 18 to plead for direct assistance. Former President George W. Bush called Abu Risha and listened to his complaints for 20 minutes and offered to help. Administration officials were less willing. One tribal official said, "I wouldn't call it the 'cold shoulder,' but it certainly was a cool one." 
The Obama Administration told them that it would only work through the elected central government. Its viewpoint was that working with forces outside the government's authority undermines the Iraqi leadership and threatens the country's unity.
That standpoint ignores what was learned after the fall of Saddam Hussein. Nothing threatens Iraq's unity and the government's authority more than instability. Direct U.S. aid to the Sunni tribes helped save Iraq from disintegration into sectarian enclaves ruled by terrorists and militias.
The Islamic State struck Ramadi during a sandstorm that delayed American air support. Former U.S. Central Command advisor Ali Khedery says that a Kurdish member of parliament informed him that 6,000 Iraqi Security Forces fled when faced with a mere 150 Islamic State fighters. About 500 Iraqi security personnel and civilians died in two days. The Iraqi officials spoke straight forwardly and  admitted that the current strategy is failing.
The Pentagon says it has finished training about 7,000 Iraqi Security Forces and another 3-4,000 are in the process of training, but training won't solve the problem of collapsing Iraqi forces. The U.S. trained the Iraqis from 2003 until the withdrawal in 2011. The strategy of waiting for the Iraqi security forces to become strong enough to stabilize the country is the same strategy that failed before the surge.
Iraqi personnel flee because they don't want to die for a lost cause or to fight for a replacement worse than the Islamic State.
The Iraqi Security Forces face a fundamental disadvantage when battling the Islamic State: They want to live and their enemies want to die. This disadvantage is further compounded by a lack of confidence. If given the choice to die fighting in a losing battle or to flee and perhaps regroup later with better chances of victory, they will choose the latter.
An Anbar official placed the blame on the Iraqi government, telling CNN, "If 10% of the government's promises had been implemented, Ramadi would still in our hands and the Islamic State wouldn't dare to be anywhere near the city."
Iraqi Sunnis are faced with a terrible choice. The Iranian-backed Shiite militias are often nicknamed "Shiite ISIS" because their crimes are comparable to ISIS but are less known by the West because they aren't broadcasted. However, the Anbar Provincial Council is officially welcoming them now out of desperation and perhaps an awareness that their opposition will be ignored anyway.
The Shiite militias should be expected to mistreat the local Sunnis the second after the Islamic State is expelled or even during the fighting. Tribal support is far from unanimous. The son of the largest tribe's leader is in the U.S. asking for support right now and bluntly warned that sending the Shiite militias into Anbar Province "will cause a civil war."
The New York Times has noticed the change in American attitude towards the Shiite militias. Pentagon spokesperson Col. Steve Warren said, "As long as they're controlled by the central Iraqi government, there's a place for them." Yet, only two months ago, Central Command Commander General Austin said, "I will not—and I hope we will never—coordinate or cooperate with Shiite militias."
The U.S. must correct its strategy by sidelining Iranian-backed militias and terrorists, leveraging influence with the Iraqi government and significantly increasing assistance to the Anbar tribes, Kurds, Iraqi government and to the persecuted Christian minority that is forming its own self-defense force.
Recent history has shown that the Iraqi government will choose the U.S. over Iran if compelled.
In March, the U.S. withheld support to Iraqi forces fighting the Islamic State in Tikrit because of the involvement of Iranian-backed militias and the Revolutionary Guards Corps. The Iranian proxies stalled and could move no further, displaying the value of U.S. air support. The Iraqis chose America and the Iranians were removed from the battle. U.S. aid delivered the victory that the Iranians could not.
The Iraqis had been asking for U.S. for more help including possibly advisors on the ground since October 2013. By March 2014, the Iraqis were asking for airstrikes on the Islamic State. The Islamic State blitz into Iraq began in June.
The Iraqi ambassador complained that the U.S. had denied requests for help including Apache helicopter sales, thereby putting Iraq "in an uncomfortable position in seeking support from whoever is available on the ground." He emphasized that the "U.S. is our strategic partner of choice."
Iran opposed the return of U.S. soldiers on the ground in Iraq as advisors. The Iranian-backed cleric Moqtada al-Sadr threatened to attack the advisors and two other Iranian-backed militias also forcefully opposed U.S. involvement. The Iraqi government went ahead anyway.
Even now, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is in Russia and talking to China and Iran about delivering arms that the U.S. refuses to provide. 
The U.S. needs to give the Iraqi government a clear choice: Iran or us.
The Iraqi government should be put on notice. If it is willing to restrain the Shiite militias and work with us to disband them, then we will provide all necessary aid. We will help negotiate with the Sunni tribes so their local forces operate within a national framework.
If the Iraqi government chooses Iran, then we will cut our aid and redirect it towards our Sunni, Kurdish and Christian partners while maintaining contact with friendly Shiites. We will not act as the air force for Iranian proxies. If necessary, we will talk about a role for the forthcoming Arab force led by Egypt to replace yours.
It is positive news that the Obama Administration is reversing its stance and will directly help the Sunni tribes, but the anti- Islamic State strategy requires an anti-Iran strategy.



100,000 CHRISTIANS KILLED YEARLY FOR THEIR FAITH
Islamic extremism has created 'cultural and human genocide' on levels unprecedented in modern times. Where is the outcry from the West?
Wed, May 20, 2015
Close to 100,000 Christians are being killed every year because of their faith, according to statistics from a Pew Research Survey and the International Society for Human Rights, a non-religious organization.
These figures, which represent an “unprecedented,” number of death per year amount to 273 Christian killed daily, or 11 every hour, said Bishop John McAreavey, chairman of the Council for Justice and Peace.

McAreavey, speaking to the Irish parliament on behalf of the Irish Catholic Bishop's Conference, said, “Eighty percent of all acts of religious discrimination in the world today are directed against Christians." 
Clarion Project is in production of a new film on minority persecution at the hands of Islamist extremists. Check out the film's website by clicking here.

The bishop added that an ever great number of Christians are "being tortured, imprisoned, exiled, threatened, excluded, attacked and discriminated against on a widespread scale."
McAreavey quoted the former Chief Rabbi of Britain, Lord Jonathan Sacks, who said that the persecution of Christians is "one of the crimes against humanity of our time." Sacks compared the reality of today’s suffering Christians to the Jews were were terrorized by the pogroms in Europe. Sacks said he was "appalled at the lack of protest it has evoked."

ANCIENT CITY OF PALMYRA FALLS TO ISLAMIC STATE
It is expected Islamic State will demolish the UNESCO world heritage site. The city is also of strategic importance.

The Islamic State captured the ancient city of Palmyra in Syria in the group’s latest strategic advance this week.
The UNESCO world heritage site is home to some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the world, mixed with Greek and Persian architectural styles. The oasis city was first built by King Solomon, according to legend.
The city is so beautiful that it is sometimes known as “The Venice of the Sands.”
UNESCO describes it as:
“An oasis in the Syrian desert, north-east of Damascus, Palmyra contains the monumental ruins of a great city that was one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world. From the 1st to the 2nd century, the art and architecture of Palmyra, standing at the crossroads of several civilizations, married Graeco-Roman techniques with local traditions and Persian influences.”
The Islamic State has destroyed many other historic sites and artifacts including the Roman city Hatra, the Assyrian capital of Nimrod and the treasures of Mosul library and Museum. 
The town of Tadmur, the Aramaic name for Palmyra, adjoins the ruins and was the location for one of the Assad regime’s most notorious military prisons. The city is important strategically because of its position on the road to Homs and Damascus from Deir ez-Zour
The gas fields of al-Hail and Arak are close by and can be controlled from Tadmur. A Homs-based human rights activist told AP that thousands of prisoners may have still been in Tadmur prison and will have been released by the Islamic State.

IRAN NAVY FIRES AT SINGAPORE SHIP IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS
Coastguard vessels from the UAE came to the ship’s aid after hearing its cry for help. The Iranian patrol boats gave up the fight shortly thereafter.
Mon, May 18, 2015
An Iranian ship fired warning shots across the bow of a ship from Singapore in the Persian Gulf in the third such aggressive incident by Tehran against commercial vessels in recent weeks.

An Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps patrol boat fired across the bow of the Alpine Eternity, an oil tanker manned by 22-23 crew members. The ship was sailing in international waters near the coast of the United Arab Emirates when it was attacked.
According to U.S. officials, coastguard vessels from the UAE came to the ship’s aid after hearing its cry for help. The Iranian patrol boats gave up the fight shortly thereafter.
A statement issued through Singapore’s Maritime and Port Authority read, "Such interference with navigational rights is a serious violation of international law. The freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce are of critical importance to Singapore and other maritime and trading nations."
As with the other incidences, Iran claimed to have a legal dispute with the Alpine Eternity and its parent company. In late March, the Singapore ship accidentally hit an Iranian oil platform. Although Iranian officials demanded reparations, to date, the shipping company has not paid Iran any compensation.

Senior Western sources told The Sunday Times Saudi Arabia has decided to become a nuclear-weapons state.
Mon, May 18, 2015
Saudi Arabia will purchase nuclear weapons from Pakistan, according to a former U.S. Defense official.
Speaking to Britain’s The Sunday Times, the unnamed official said:
“There has been a longstanding agreement in place with the Pakistanis and the House of Saud has now made the strategic decision to move forward.”
Saudi Arabia, which financed much of Pakistan’s nuclear program, will buy nuclear weapons “off-the shelf.”
On May 11 an Arab leader told The New York Times “We can't sit back and be nowhere as Iran is allowed to retain much of its capability and amass its research.”

INDONESIA: MILITARY CHIEF DEFENDS VIRGINITY TESTS ON FEMALES
An international outcry erupts over the army’s decision to subject all potential female recruits to the humiliating, invasive test.
Tue, May 19, 2015
As an international outcry erupts over the Indonesian’s army’s decision to subject all potential female recruits to an invasive virginity test, the country’s top general  commended the practice saying, “So what’s the problem? It’s a good thing, so why criticize it?”
Speaking to reporters outside the state palace, General Moeldoko further remarked that while the “test” had no connection to a woman’s aptitude to be a member of the armed forces, it nevertheless was a “measure of morality. There is no other way.”
The test, which medical practitioners say cannot determine if a girl has ever had sexual relations, is administered in a humiliating procedure known as the two-finger physical exam.
Human Rights Watch condemned the test as “discriminatory and invasive” and demanded that Indonesia drop the practice.
Indonesia also carries out virginity tests on female police recruits. They have also proposed in the past carrying them out on high school students aged 16-18 as well.

A civil service job portal in the kingdom advertised for 8 new beheaders to keep up with the increasing number of death sentences.
Tue, May 19, 2015
Executioners are in demand in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. A civil service job portal in the kingdom advertised for eight new beheaders to keep up with the increasing number of death sentences being handed down by Saudi judges.
The ad on the site says the job requires no special qualifications and also includes the task of amputating limbs for lesser offenses. The successful candidate would be a “religious functionary” and garner pay at the lower end of civil-service jobs.
Saudi Arabia ranks within the top five countries in the world for capital punishment, ranking behind China and Iran (first and second) and before Iraq and the United States, according to statistics gathered by Amnesty International.
Last year, Amnesty said at least 90 people were put to death in the kingdom, compared to the figure of 88 issues by the Saudi government. As of last Sunday when a man was beheaded (according to the Saudi Press Agency), 85 people had been executed in Saudi Arabia this year alone.
