Exclusive – Vicar of Baghdad: ISIS Cells Already in Baghdad
Because of the imminent danger, Canon Andrew White was ordered to leave Baghdad. He says ISIS has planted cells that are already operating there.
Mon, October 6, 2014
The Vicar of Baghdad, Andrew White, has fled Iraq on the orders of his superior, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who felt it was too dangerous to stay in the city with the Islamic State (ISIS) closing in.  

“ISIS has plants in Baghdad. That's why the archbishop wanted us gone. The other day, they discovered 150 bodies of people who had been shot. Nobody knows who did it, but we know that ISIS is already operating in Baghdad,” said White in an exclusive interview with the Clarion Project.
White spoke to Clarion about the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq, the fate of the kidnapped Christian and Yazidi women and children, and the prospects for the future.
Vicar Andrew White
He related how, just recently, the Islamic State burst into the house of one of “his families" and offered the parents a choice: “Convert right now or we will kill your children in front of you.” They came to White heartbroken that they had uttered the required words to save their children.
Another day, they went to a different family. White remembers, “The kids were told to convert or be killed. They refused. There were four of them from 15-years old and younger. They beheaded all of them,” he related crying. “They were all our children. That is how evil these people are. So evil. They have no respect for anyone. The other day, they chopped a four-year old boy in half. He didn't do anything. What can a four-year old boy do? He was just a boy …"
White, 50, is an Anglican vicar from London and president of the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, an aid and advocacy group that works for peace between different religious groups in the Middle East. The foundation, which has 260 centers around the world, has worked with Nigerian Christians and Muslims, Israelis and Palestinians and different groups in Germany.
White arrived in Baghdad in 1998. That same year, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) but stayed nonetheless. Saddam Hussein was still in power and the international sanctions had created crushing poverty in the country. Even though gas was one cent a liter (less than four cents per gallon), the normal monthly salary was $2.
White described life under Saddam as one of constant fear. “Everyone was in fear of everyone else. But you could walk around, live your life normally,” he remembers. “It was just like life behind the Iron Curtain, nobody knew who they could trust. Secret police were everywhere.”
Yet, he says, Saddam was very good to the Christians, and there was very little persecution of Christians or other minorities during his reign. Saddam was a Sunni, a minority in Iraq, so he needed the other minorities to help him maintain power.
Immediately after the Second Gulf War and the deposing of Saddam, “There was jubilation,” White remembers. “Everybody was happy. They were free at last. When the statue [of Saddam] was brought down, everybody thought there was hope for their future.”
Yet the jubilation lasted only about six months. As the Sunni and Shiites began vying for power, corruption became rampant. The Americans had set up the Coalition Provision Authority (CPA) to rule the country with representation from Sunnis, Shiites and minorities.
“After a year and a half, the CPA left Iraq and handed over the Iraqi government [to the Iraqis]. Shiites, for the first time ever, became the controlling force,” White relates. “There was never was any real tension beforehand, but as things developed, the tensions got greater and greater. We also saw corruption from those taking power. The Shiites came to power through the Dawa party. That started the tension with the Sunnis.”
One of White’s firm beliefs is that “terrorism is always started when somebody loses power.”
White says that the Sunnis felt marginalized by the Shiites, creating an open door for Al Qaeda, which quickly moved into Iraq. “The Americans controlled the checkpoints, and they let them in out of naivety -- really naïve,” recalled White.
Terrorism increased. But while the Americans were there, White said, there was still some degree of order. Once the Americans pulled out, “Everything went wrong. I said to my team, look, within three years, we will have massive terrorism.”
White says that the Islamic State developed because former Iraqi President al-Maliki did not give the Sunnis a serious role in the government. “The Sunnis felt really marginalized and, in the end, they created Sunni opposition movements -- first with Al Qaeda, and then they developed their own group, ISIS.”
Even the Kurds helped the Islamic State originally, White explained. “This had to do with the separation of Kurdistan from Iraq. The Kurds are Sunnis. Nobody knew how evil ISIS would be, nobody knew how terrible they would actually be.”
When asked why the Iraqi army has been so ineffectual in fighting the Islamic State, White said, “The Iraqi army is not very competent. The Americans spent years training them, but they didn't really take anything on board.”
The future, he says, is “very, very bleak.” The Iraqis from Baghdad who had the funds have left the country. Another 250,000 Christians in Mosul and Ninevah have been ousted from their homes, most likely never to return.
“Basically, apart from the south, ISIS controls Iraq until you get to Kurdistan. They are the richest terror group in the world. They have taken huge amounts of money from the banks and are making huge amounts of money selling oil. What is so awful is they have taken huge amounts of our girls, and they have sold them,” he said. “The other day, we spent the day figuring out how much money we needed to buy the girls back. Basically you are looking at $5,000 per girl.”
Unlike the impression one gets in the media, White says, the Islamic State is not selling the Christian and Yazidi women to make money. For the jihadi fighters, their price is next to nothing. But to buy them back, they want a lot of money.
“The problem,” says White, “is that there is no way that we, as Westerners, can do anything. We have to do it all through Arab men.”
He confirmed all the reports about the horrific treatment of the girls. “It’s all true. It's terrible. They are basically making them into slaves. Sex slaves and working slaves, and it's not just adults either. It's also children.”
White spoke about the “extreme evil’ of the Islamic State, what gives rise to such evil and what attracts people to such evil. “The nearest thing to this is like what happened in the Holocaust. It's not as bad as that, even though it's terrible. Nothing was as bad as that. But just as we saw pure evil with the Nazis, with these people we see pure evil. When people feel they have lost everything, they will turn to terrorism to try to show their power. How do they show their power? By showing evil.”
White says that the young Europeans who have joined the group are filling a vacuum created by a lack of religion. “You can't do away with religion,” he says. When that happens, even Muslims who are not extremists can become extremists, he contends. “Their faith is so important to them, and they believe that the Western world is against them, that they don't want them, and so they become more extreme.”
White plans to return to Iraq as soon as possible. “But for the time being, I will have to go back to Irbil (in Iraqi Kurdistan). Irbil is very safe, compared to everywhere else.”

Yet, he acknowledges, “Nowhere is very safe over there.”

TURKEY'S KNEE-DEEP INVOLVEMENT WITH ISLAMIST TERRORISTS
For the sake of human rights and the fight against Islamist extremism, the West must accept that the Turkey of today is not the Turkey that was. The Turkish parliament is considering authorizing military action against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) in Iraq and Syria. The U.S. will welcome such a development, but it must not forget Turkey’s previous support of Al Qaeda in Syria, deal-making with the Islamic State (ISIS), hosting of Hamas terrorists and embrace of the Muslim Brotherhood.

ISIS Within 1 Mile of Baghdad, Escape Routes Closed
"They said it could never happen and now it almost has." said a spokesman for a Baghdad aid group, who says the Iraqi army is unprepared to battle ISIS.
Thu, October 2, 2014
Islamic State (ISIS) fighters are only one mile away from Baghdad, Iraq's capital, according a spokesman for the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, a Christian aid group.

"They said it could never happen and now it almost has. Obama says he overestimated what the Iraqi Army could do. Well, you only need to be here a very short while to know they can do very, very little," said the spokesman.
In an interview (see video below), Canon Andrew White, a veteran of Baghdad and leader of the foundation, said that the U.S. airstrikes had proven to be ineffective against the Islamic State and that, unfortunately, they had merely killed civilians. Ground troops are needed, he said to defeat the Islamic State.
Canon himself has been provided with over 30 security guards –some of them soldiers from the Iraqi Army -- due to the danger that he faces.  When asked if he had faith in the Iraqi army, Canon laughed.
He explained, “I’m laughing because I said to one of my soldier guards today, ‘If ISIS were coming towards you, what would you do?’ He said, ‘I would take off my uniform.’ [I asked,] ‘Why are you in the army then? Why are you a soldier? What are you doing? Aren’t you protecting us?’ He said, ‘No, I’m in it because I need the money.’”
When asked if people are planning to flee the city, Canon said, “The problem is there isn’t much opportunity. If you go by car, you go by the central part of the [country], which is now under ISIS control. If you try to fly out, that isn’t easy because, for example, the first flight that I can get is on Monday.”
Meanwhile, 50 miles northwest of the capital, Islamic State militants besieged an Iraqi army base, trapping between 240 and 600 army personnel inside. A number of soldiers from the Albu Aytha base escaped before the militants arrived.
Fifty miles due north of Baghdad, an Iraqi tribe in the Jubar neighborhood of the Sunni Arab town of Dhuluiyah has held out under a two-week attack by Islamic State fighters. Jubar was highly involved fighting the precursor to the Islamic State in 2005-07 (when the Islamic State was affiliated with Al Qaeda). Those Sunni tribal forces were backed the U.S.
Tribal leaders have asked for more help from the U.S.-led coalition, specifically airstrikes, which they say will help disperse the jihadists.
Earlier this week in Mosul, an Islamic State stronghold Samira Salih al-Nuaimi
Samira Salih al-Nuaimi
in Iraq, the jihadi group tortured and executed a prominent human rights activist and lawyer for critical remarks she made against the group on Facebook. Samira Salih al-Nuaimi took issue with the group for destroying monotheistic religious sites, including mosques and the tombs of Daniel and Jonah.

Islamic State militants abducted al-Nuaimi from her house and tortured her for five days before having a firing squad execute her in the middle of the city.
“By torturing and executing a female human rights lawyer and activist, defending in particular the civil and human rights of her fellow citizens in Mosul, ISIS continues to attest to its infamous nature, combining hatred, nihilism and savagery, as well as its total disregard of human decency,” said Nickolay Mladenov, the UN envoy to Iraq, in a statement.
In what is thought to be a targeted campaign against female activists, two more women lawyers in the Mosul area are also feared to have been abducted by the Islamic State, as they have been reported missing for over a week.
In Syria, Islamic State fighters beheaded seven men and three women in the northern Kurdish area of Ayn Arab, a town close to the border with Turkey. Five of those beheaded were reported to be Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, including three women. Pictures on social media showed the women’s heads on display in the Islamic State stronghold city Jarablous in northern Syria.
Kurdish fighters have been battling the Islamic State in the area of Kobani for the last two weeks. High casualties have been reported in that battle.
Also in Syria, the Al Qaeda-affiliated jihadi group, Jabhat al-Nusra, is reportedly entering into an alliance with the Islamic State. Despite previous fighting between the two groups, they may be joining forces to combat the American-led coalition.
Threatening retaliatory action against the U.S. and it allies, Al-Nusra’s spokesman, Abu Firas al-Suri, said, “These states have committed a horrible act that is going to put them on the list of jihadist targets throughout the world.”

“This is not a war against al-Nusra,” he added. “But a war against Islam.”

UK: LEADING SOURCE OF FEMALE JIHADISTS IN SYRIA AND IRAQ
As many as 60 Muslim women between the ages of 18 and 24 are believed to have left Britain to join ISIS during the past 12 months alone.
Many of the women seem to be motivated by the hope of finding a jihadist husband, analysts say, apparently because they covet the cultural and religious "prestige" conferred upon Muslim widows whose husbands have died as "martyrs" for Allah.
Until recently, most of the British women affiliated with IS have been restricted to performing domestic chores such as cleaning and cooking. Lately, however, some women have become restive and have demanded a greater role in the IS enterprise.

ISIS Releases 'Flames of War' Feature Film to Intimidate West
After releasing the trailer last week, the Islamic State released the full film -- a gory, bravado flick showcasing their ruthless tactics in Syria.
BY RYAN MAURO Sun, September 21, 2014
A screen shot from 'Flames of War.' The American narrator of the film is on the far left. 
True to its promise, the Islamic State terrorist group released a 55-minute video (see below) narrated by an operative in Syria with an American accent.  At the same time, Al-Qaeda has released a new video (see below) featuring an American recruit named Adam Gadahn calling on Muslims to pursue regime change in Pakistan.

The Islamic State video is far above the Al-Qaeda video in terms of production. The 55-minute film, titled Flames of War, is professionally edited and highlights the Islamic State’s seizure of the Syrian Army’s 17th Division base near Raqqah.
Footage is shown from the attack and then the film shows an Islamic State fighter near the base speaking in fluent English with an American accent. Captured Syrian soldiers are shown digging their own graves. One claims that 800 of Assad’s troops were at the base and were defeated by only 20-30 Islamic State members. The captives are then shot point blank and shown gruesomely falling in the ditches.
Flames of War uses the narrator to explain the Islamic state's version of the events, namely, that they are merely trying to establish god's law on earth but are being attacked by Assad, the Americans, the West and various other foes.
The film utilizes romantic imagery carefully crafted to appeal to dissatisfied and alienated young men, replete with explosions, tanks and self-described mujahedeen winning battles. Anti-American rhetoric provides the voice-over to stop motion and slow motion action sequences. The use of special effects such as bullet-time is interspersed with newsreel footage.
This up-to-date, sophisticated cinematography combined with the bloodthirsty message the film makes Flames of War reminiscent of Hitler propagandist Leni Riefenstahl's 1935 film, Triumph of the Will.
The film finishes with a written statement from Islamic State “Caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi referring to the U.S. as the “defender of the cross.” The message appears to indicate that the group believes U.S. combat forces will be sent to Iraq.
“As for the near future, you will be forced into a direct confrontation, with Allah’s permission, despite your reluctance. And the sons of Islam have prepared themselves for this day, so wait and see, for we too are also going to wait and see,” it says.
The new Al-Qaeda video with Adam Gadahn is simple and only features a lecture from him. The contrast between the two videos is a microcosm of how Al-Qaeda has faded into the background as the Islamic State has risen and is winning the next generation of jihadists.
Gadahn is from California and converted to Islam in 1995. He moved to Pakistan in 1998. He has been acting as an Al-Qaeda spokesman since 2004 and is often called “Azzam the American.”
The name of Gadahn’s newest video is, “The Pakistani Regime: The Agent of the Devil.” The Pakistani military began an offensive in North Waziristan, a terrorist stronghold, in June. A senior Pakistani Taliban commander was just killed in the fighting.
It is undated, but Gadahn mentions the Iraqi government led by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, dating it to before August 15 when al-Maliki resigned. Gadahn last appeared in a video in March confirming the death of Abu Khalid al-Suri, the official liaison between Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri and terrorists in Syria.
The focus of the new Al-Qaeda video is to urge Muslims to topple the Pakistani government and attack its military and intelligence services in order to replace it with a “just and prosperous Islamic state.” He preaches that Muslims are to follow Taliban leader Mullah Omar as their emir.
Gadahn tells the audience that only overthrowing the Pakistan government can prevent invasions by India and China, the dismantling of its nuclear weapons arsenal and the dividing of the country into several states. He states:
“The fastest way to achieve regime change in Pakistan is to target American and other Western and Zionist interests on our soil and theirs and besiege their diplomatic compounds and enclaves until the occupiers go back home where they belong.”
By “occupiers,” Gadahn is referring to any foreign presence that impedes the creation of an Islamic state with sharia governance. The native Muslim population that opposes such a goal would be branded as apostates, carrying the punishment of death.
Although Al-Qaeda is urging jihadists to focus on Pakistan, Gadahn singles out the government of Saudi Arabia as the “biggest Western tool of them all.”
Gadahn’s video comes at a time of increased concern about an Al-Qaeda attack on the West because of a special unit it has established in Syria named Khorasan.
It consists of top operatives from Pakistan that were trained by Ibrahim al-Asiri, an operative from Al-Qaeda’s branch in Yemen called Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. He is known for inventing bombs that can penetrate airport security by hiding them in underwear and ink cartridges. It was previously reported that al-Asiri had switched allegiance to the Islamic State.
CBS News reports that intelligence sources described al-Asiri as “the most innovative bomb-builder in the jihadist world.”
The Khorasan operatives were sent to Syria with the specific objective of recruiting jihadists with Western passports so they can potentially get onto airliners and blow them up.
One commonality in the two videos is that both groups preach that battlefield success is proof of Allah’s approval. The Islamic State video, for example, says “Allah helps you and grants you victory” and repeats that point several times.
"Allah is with his believers and it is he who directs the RPG grenade, punishing the enemy with the hands of the Mujahadeen," the film states.
If battlefield successes indicate Allah’s approval, then battlefield defeats must indicate Allah’s disapproval or even divine judgment. That is part of the reason for the Islamic State’s rise and Al-Qaeda’s decline.
Understanding this doctrine can help the West undermine the enemy’s support. Jihadists can spin their setbacks and tell supporters that Allah rewards patience, but it is hard to convince audiences that Allah is on your side if you repeatedly suffer defeat. If moderate Muslims reinforce that doubt, then the group’s troubles increase exponentially.

IRAN IMPRISONS BRITISH WOMAN FOR TRYING TO WATCH MEN'S VOLLEYBALL
After attempting to enter a men's volleyball game, a 25-year old British-Iranian woman has been jailed for more than two months in the notorious Evin prison.
A British-Iranian woman, arrested more than two months ago for trying to attend a volleyball game, continues to be held in Tehran’s Evin Prison.
Ghoncheh Ghavami, 25, was originally detained along with a group of women who were protesting an Iranian law which forbids women from watching men play volleyball. A similar law banning women from watching male soccer matches was instituted after the Iranian Islamic revolution in 1979. In 2012, the law was extended to include volleyball games.  
Ghavami was released from the original custody on June 20, but when she went back a number of days later to collect her belongings, she was re-arrested and put in the notorious prison known for holding – and torturing – political prisoners and journalists. Rape and other sexual violations are frequently used as methods of torture by guards at Evin prison.

MUSLIM AMERICAN ORGS. MUST CONDEMN ISLAMISM NOT JUST ISIS
Leaders of US Muslim Brotherhood-linked organizations have condemned ISIS, but they have failed to condemn the Islamist ideology itself.
BY RYAN MAURO Wed, September 17, 2014
The Muslim-American community, including organizations with radical histories, swiftly and unequivocally condemned the Islamic State terrorist group (formerly and commonly known as ISIS). These statements are welcome, but they need to go further and challenge the Islamist basis of the group and those like it.
The vast majority of condemnations of the Islamic State focus on its violent tactics and not its belief that Muslims are commanded to wage jihad to build an Islamic state, i.e. a government based on Islamic law (sharia). Nor is its belief that Muslims must rebuild a caliphate being confronted.
President Obama is being criticized for stating that the Islamic State is “not Islamic.” The understandable objective was to avoid depicting the campaign against the Islamic State as a war on Islam, but the obvious truth is that the Islamic State is following an interpretation of Islam. Many Muslims feel it is an incorrect interpretation, but it is still an interpretation.

JORDAN: 17-YEAR OLD KILLED BY FATHER FOR PICKING OWN HUSBAND
Perpetrators of honor crimes are protected by Jordanian law, which makes allowances for “the use of mitigating reasons for assault crimes.”
In a small town in Jordan, Weila S., 17, made the mistake of deciding who she wanted to marry. According to Weila’s neighbors, Weila had her heart set on marrying Ahmed. Her father opposed the idea, and their arguments grew more and more intense.
In fact, Weila and Ahmed had secretly already married. At the height of one of the arguments, when it became apparent to Weila that she would never convince her father to change his mind, Weil left the house, taking refuge at a neighbor’s.
Her father followed. He knocked on the door, and Weila answered. Can we speak in private, he and asked? Weila agreed. But speaking was not on Weila’s father’s mind. In the kitchen, he took out a shotgun and pumped two bullets in Weila’s mouth and two in her heart.

NO EXAGGERATION WHEN IT COMES TO FGM
Two years ago, I was on a panel discussion with a focus on violence against women. I mentioned female genital mutilation (FGM) and its heightened prevalence, how thousands of girls are at risk every year in the United States to undergo this atrocious act.
“You’re exaggerating.”
I froze. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. My stand for this issue was completely shot down, dismissed, and ignored. Here is a supposed panel for activism and women’s rights, yet the most vicious act of violence that is perpetuated upon women, girls, and infants was deemed irrelevant. Was FGM too sensitive to talk about? Do people really think it doesn’t happen? What about the thousands of victims that suffer in silence without a platform to voice their experiences?
Fast forward to the here and now. Female genital mutilation has finally received the much needed attention for advocacy, education, and awareness.

5 REASONS WHY THE US COALITION AGAINST ISIS IS AN EMPTY SHELL
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Thu, September 18, 2014
For all the 'activity' of the 26 countries in the coalition, there has been remarkably little offered in the way of concrete support.

As U.S. jets pounded Islamic State positions north of Baghdad this week, diplomats pondered their options in Paris. U.S. President Barack Obama has stressed the importance of a collaborative global effort to combat the Islamic State (commonly known as ISIS and ISIL) which has been rampaging across much of Iraq and Syria, slaughtering as they go.

The president said, “American military power is unmatched, but this can't be America's fight alone.” He want to build an international coalition which will come together to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State. But based on the reactions of international leaders, he has yet to receive any concrete commitments to take an active part in the military campaign against the Islamic State.
Representatives from 26 countries attended a conference in Paris on Monday to discuss the planned coalition. The conference included diplomats from Western counties,  including the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Germany and Canada as well as the EU representative. Arab countries including Iraq itself Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, and the UAE attended, as did the Arab League representative. The presence of Russia, China and the United Nations underscored the global nature of the threat posed by the Islamic State.
The representatives issued a joint, 10-point statement condemning the Islamic State, expressing their full support for the new Iraqi government and their grave concern at the rapidly deteriorating human rights situation in Iraq. They also committed themselves to joining “appropriate military action” in support of the Iraqi government.
For all this activity, there has been remarkably little offered in the way of concrete support. Here are five reasons why forming a committed coalition willing to donate troops has proven so difficult:

1. Arabs and Muslims Do Not Trust America
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Egypt in an effort to build much-needed support for the coalition among the U.S.’s key regional allies. Although he reported encouraging conversations, none of these three counties agreed to commit troops. Leaked reports from an anonymous Western diplomatic source said “there is a very real possibility that we could have the Saudi air force bombing targets inside Syria.” However, no such possibility has yet been made public.
Arab and Muslim nations regard Western policy, in general, and American policy, in particular, with great suspicion. One commentator on Al-Arabiya called the coalition “late, weak and badly planned” but still “better than nothing.” Middle East analyst Khaled Abu Toameh writing for the Gatestone Institute said that most reactions from Arab Muslims on joining the US led coalition against the ISIS was that, “This is not our war and we should not be fighting it.” They regard Obama’s foreign policy as vacillating and unreliable and not truly committed to the fight. They also blame America for creating the situation that led to the rise of the Islamic State in the first place, because of the 2003 Iraq war and the support for Nouri al-Maliki's divisive government in the aftermath of that conflict.
In addition, Egypt’s government regards the U. S. as a Muslim Brotherhood ally that is not committed to fighting Islamists. Toameh argues that President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will never forgive Obama for supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. 

2. Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar Actively Support Jihadists
Saudi and Turkey are both Islamist states with much to lose by being associated with an American-led coalition to destroy the Islamic State. Saudi Arabia is worried about an internal uprising should it pursue an alliance with America against a group fighting for a very similar brand of Salafi Islam to its own state-sponsored Wahhabism.
Thousands of Saudis are serving in the Islamic State in all sorts of positions, and the Saudis have arrested recruiters for the Islamic State within its borders.
Turkey is slightly different, having been far more active in aiding the Islamic Sate and Sunni jihadists. Turkey's porous border with Syria serves as a conduit for fighters, supplies and money headed to serve the needs of the self-declared caliphate.
Oil from the Islamic State is smuggled the other way, from Syria into Turkey. A former U.S. Ambassador to Turkey said in the Wall Street Journal that Turkey is a “non-ally” that has been funding and arming Jabhat al-Nusra. Erdogan has stated that Turkey will provide only logistical and humanitarian support against the Islamic State and take no aggressive action whatsoever.
 
3. Conflicting Loyalties in the Syrian Civil War Make Unity Difficult
Assad has been an ally of Russia for years, to a large extent due to the Russian naval base at Latakia. Russia will not join any U.S.-led coalition without the involvement or support of Assad. Sunni and Western allies, on the other hand, will not be part of any coalition that does support Assad. Public opinion and government policy prohibit any action in Syria that could inadvertently help President Bashar al-Assad. Obama’s promise to arm the moderates leads to the question of who exactly those moderates are. The majority of the forces aligned under the banner of the Free Syrian Army have been destroyed or have defected to other groups. The remnants openly cooperate with Islamist factions such as Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic Front. Finding an existing non-Islamist rebel army to support at this stage will be very hard.

 4. The EU Does Not Want to Get Involved

Western countries other than America are perfectly happy for America to bear the lion’s share of the cost, trouble and fallout for any Western involvement. Feared backlash from Muslim populations are part of the reason why European countries do not want to get involved in what is now a regional Middle Eastern war.
France and Britain, in particular, have large Muslim minorities and have had serious problems with home-grown terrorism in the past. Europe is in the grip of austerity measures, and there is intense domestic pressure to reduce spending. France’s budget is already triple what the government predicted it would be, and thus has little appetite for further expenditures.
Britain is still scarred by the war in Iraq, which faced fierce opposition. Any attempt by Prime Minister David Cameron to put “boots on the ground” will face accusations of pandering to American adventurism. Furthermore the British parliament voted against conducting airstrikes against the Assad regime last year in a stunning rejection of the idea of liberal interventionism.
It is symptomatic of a viewpoint increasingly common – that the current Middle East conflict, however terrible, is none of Europe’s business and that involvement in any capacity will only make things worse. This attitude was succinctly summed up by Guardian columnist Giles Fraser, who wrote, “We are witnessing a shift in the political tectonic plates throughout the whole of the Middle East and beyond into Africa, and the west’s apparently surgical involvement will probably do little more than generate some short-term satisfaction that we are doing something. It is not that I am morally squeamish about bombing IS fanatics. Rather, I think we ought to recognise that we are little more than bystanders to a war that is so much bigger than we ever imagined, and so much more complicated than the rhetoric of terrorism or limited conflict allows.”

 5. No One Wants to Risk Their Own Soldiers

France has agreed to join U.S.-led airstrikes, but not to send ground troops. The UK may join airstrikes but may not. It certainly will not be sending ground troops. The only country so far to commit openly to sending troops is Australia which has already begun sending 600 soldiers to Iraq. They will be performing a variety of roles including logistical support, providing strategic and military advice assisting in training, and Super Hornet aircraft. No frontline combat soldiers were included in the contingent.
When taken holistically, the coalition seems to consist of the battered remnants of the Iraqi army and the Kurds bolstered by Shiite militia groups sponsored by Iran. U.S. and French air strikes -- and a firm commitment from the United States, France and Britain not to put their own troops on the ground -- are so far the extent of Western intervention.

It seems that everybody wants the Islamic State destroyed, but nobody wants to have to do it themselves.  The coalition is fraught with mistrust before the campaign even begins.

UK Ignored Sexual Abuse of 1,400 Girls by Muslim Gangs
A report details the extent of abuse in Rotherham from 1997 to 2013 and how officials ignored it for fear of being called racist.
Sun, August 31, 2014
A report released last week has sent shockwaves through the British establishment, after revealing that 1,400 girls from the town of Rotherham in South Yorkshire have been sexually abused by "grooming gangs" of Pakistani Muslim men since 1997, while the police and social services looked on.
The girls, some as young as 11, were raped many times by multiple assailants, trafficked to other towns and cities in the UK and threatened with extreme violence if they failed to comply. Victims were doused in petrol and threatened with being set alight if they refused to cooperate.

ISIS: 'COOL' IMAGE WINNING OVER NEXT GENERATION OF JIHADIS
Al Qaeda is out. The Islamic State is young, cool and successful -- ironically utilizing the same Western culture it is out to destroy.
The Arabic paper Al-Mayadeem reported the death at 11:35am local time. Abu Hajer el-Souri was described as "the right hand of al-Baghdadi."
The Islamic State is winning over the next generation of Sunni jihadists for two main reasons: Success and “coolness.” Many Islamic State supporters are foul-mouthed, highly sarcastic rappers and gamers who mesh their Islamist ideology with their affection for Western culture.
None of this is what comes to mind when you think of jihadists, who usually express hatred for Western culture, viewing it as a corrupting influence.
If current trends persist, Al-Qaeda will become known as “your father’s terrorist group,” an organization that has gone out-of-style.

New ISIS Video, Photo Show Beheading of Kurd & Lebanese
The Islamic State continues its strategy of instilling fear by publishing videos and photos depicting beheadings.
Thu, August 28, 2014
WARNING: SOME OF  THE IMAGES IN THIS ARTICLE ARE GRAPHIC

The Islamic State (IS), more commonly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has just released a video showing a Kurdish fighter being beheaded and other Kurdish prisoners and photos of a Lebanese soldier it beheaded. It has also announced that Ansar al-Islam, an Al-Qaeda affiliate, has pledged allegiance to the IS leader.
The new video, called “A Message in Blood to the Leaders of the American-Kurdish Alliance,” was released and shows 15 Kurdish prisoners in orange jumpsuits, a reference to Islamist terrorists held by the U.S. at Guantanamo Bay. One of them is later executed in front of the Grand Mosque in Mosul, Iraq.
The executed prisoner is shown next to photos of Kurdish and American officials together. The video cuts away as the IS terrorist begins beheading him. It then shows his severed head on his body.
The video is meant to depict IS as having victory over the Kurdish Peshmerga. It features footage of a Kurdish soldier in a ditch surrendering and captured Kurds in military uniforms. The beheading is followed by film of a long convoy of vehicles with IS fighters.
IS supporters are making an effort to depict the group as humane and just. Several tweeted that the Kurdish prisoners are being well-treated in accordance with Sharia.

IS has also released photos showing the execution of a Lebanese soldier it captured. This comes shortly after it released a video showcasing seven captured Lebanese troops. An IS affiliate in Lebanon claimed to hold an additional four soldiers. The video said they’d be executed if Hezbollah did not leave Lebanon.
One of the purposes of the video is to distort reality. The Peshmerga, with the assistance of the U.S. and Iran, has recaptured the dam of Mosul, potentially averting a humanitarian disaster threatening millions of Iraqis. The Kurds recently recaptured an oil and farming center south of Irbil. They have also formed all-female units as an expression of feminism. IS terrorists burned three oil wells as they were forced into retreat.
IS supporters are also distributing photos purporting to show that Ansar al-Islam, an Al-Qaeda affiliate in Iraqi Kurdistan, has pledged allegiance to IS and its declared caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The coverage of this latest propaganda must not advance the IS agenda. IS wants to create the impression of victory and demoralize its Kurdish enemies. The media is obligated to point out that these latest announcements come as IS is facing setbacks at the hands of fellow Muslims aligned with the U.S.

Teaching to Kill: The Islamic State's Jihad Camps for Kids
In a chilling report, a filmmaker embedded with the Islamic State in Syria shows how the extremist jihadi group is indoctrinating children.

Huffington Post Lists Known Terrorists As Opponents of Terror
In a chilling report, a filmmaker from Vice News who embedded himself for a number of weeks with the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS) in Raqqa, Syria, shows how the extremist jihadi group is indoctrinating children to hatred and violence (see video below).

“For us, we believe that this generation of children is the generation of the caliphate. This generation will fight the infidels and apostates, the Americans and their allies, God willing. The right doctrine has been implanted in these children," says an Islamic State member who is running a “training camp” for children. “All of them love to fight for the building of the Islamic State and for the sake of God,” he says.
“Abdullah the Belgian,” as he is called, travelled to Syria with his young son, who he has brought to the camp. As the camera rolls, Abdullah crouches down next to his son, who appeared to be about the age of six or seven.
“Why do we kill the infidels? What have the infidels done?” he asks his son.
Self-conscious in front of the camera, the child answers, “They kill Muslims.”
“All the infidels?  Like the infidels of Europe?” his father asks him.
“The infidels of Europe.  All the infidels,” he son answers dutifully.
The father continues, “What do you want to be, a jihadist or to execute a martyrdom [suicide] operation?”
“A jihadist,” says the young boy.
Once more the topic returns to killing infidels.  Abdullah asks his son, “Why do we kill infidels? What have the infidels done?”
“They kill Muslims.” The boy says, looking to his father, as if to say, “Did I say the right answer?”
The Islamic State has set up its children’s camp on the bank of the Euphrates river. Cooling off during the long, hot days of Ramadan, the men of the Islamic State, play with boys in the water. But while it may be fun and games for the children, for the men, it is serious business.
Abu Mosa is the Islamic State’s press officer. Speaking to the filmmaker, he says he lives for the war all the time. Asked about his home and family, Mosa says, “I don’t go [home] at all. The family, honestly, is the least important thing. There is a higher purpose. No one will defend the Muslims if we all sat at home with the family.”
Speaking on the banks of the river while others play, Mosa explains how the children will be “educated.”
“Those under 15 go to a sharia camp to learn about their creed and religion. Those over 16, they can attend the military camp,” he says.
When asked if the children participate in military operations, Mosa answers, “Yes, those who are over 16 and were previously enrolled in the camps can participate in military operations, because Usama Ibn Zaid (the adopted son of Mohammed) led an army when he was 17 or 18 years old … against the Romans.”
Fourteen-year-old Daoud, who has just enjoyed a swim, is put in front of the camera. “In the name of God …,” Daoud says, “I’d like to join ISIS [the Islamic State] and kill with them. Because they fight infidels and apostates.”
Daoud looks to the side, perhaps at someone off camera for approval. He continues, “The Islamic State, they haven’t done anything wrong and God willing they will not. We love the Islamic State.”
Another child, aged nine, explains that he is going to a training camp after Ramadan ends. When asked on what will he be training, he proudly answers, “The Russian [Kalashnikov rifle].”
When asked the purpose of the training, he says, “To fight the Russians, America. The infidels.”
The interviewer points out to him, “You are quite young. Do you know how to use a gun? Have you shot a gun before?”
The nine-year-old answers, “Yes.”
At one of the many celebratory rallies held by the Islamic State in Raqqa in honor of the group’s declaration of the establishment of a new caliphate, one can see scores of children and young boys. Waving huge Islamic State flags prominently, the children smile and listen to testimonials given by the group’s followers.  The children also stand with weapons next to adults who are similarly armed.
The rallies serve as important recruitment opportunities for the Islamic State. There is entertainment as well as testimonials.  A man sings, “Beautiful virgins are calling, enroll me as a martyr."
Another man takes the microphone to tell his story:
“I lived in Europe for 25 years, but I always wanted to go to Muslim lands. We left our children and we left the pretty women. We said goodbye to them, we came to the land of honor and jihad. This is where I feel at ease, 100 percent.”
Tellingly, the man continues, shouting,“ I noticed that only the children say hello to us, and they send us kisses from far away. When old people look at us with a frightened look, they don’t know that we are the best people on the planet. After the prophets, come the Mujahideen!”
At the end of the event, the crowd is asked to pledge their allegiance to the head of the Islamic State, the self-declared caliph, Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi.
With their arms raised in a Nazi salute, children and adults recite, “We pledge allegiance to the prince of the faithful, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. “ The crowd is told, “When I shout ‘the Caliphate,’ you say ‘established.’ “
The crowd complies, many times.

The video ends with chilling footage of prisoners held by the Islamic State militants, who say they are waiting to be whipped by the group. The camera cuts to an Islamic State official who stops a man on the street to ask him if a certain woman is his wife. When the man answers yes, the official tells him that she must change the fabric of her veil. Explaining to the filmmaker, the official says, “So, we advise in a nice way, but those who don’t obey will be forced.”

HUFFINGTON POST LISTS KNOWN TERRORISTS AS OPPONENTS OF TERROR
The leading news-outlet, The Huffington Post, has published a list called 'Muslim Leaders Condemn Terror' that includes terrorists in it.

The Huffington Post has included several known terrorist leaders and supporters in a slideshow titled "Muslim Leaders Condemn Terrorism."
The Huffington Post published an article August 25 about a demonstration in Norway by a group of Muslims who were protesting against the Islamic State and its supporters in Norway. At the end of the article is a slideshow titled "Muslim Leaders Condemn Terrorism" which features various high-profile Muslim leaders who have issued statements condemning terrorism. Most of the examples were statements condemning the 9/11 terrorist attacks in the U.S. that killed 3,000 people in the World Trade Center. 
However, the Huffington Post's slideshow included terrorist supporters and financiers as well as leaders of the known terrorist group Hamas who are listed below.

UK Islamists Join With Neo-Nazis, Marxists in Anti-Semitism
Christians and Muslims are being slaughtered by Islamists across the Middle East, yet extremists join together in their hatred for Jews
This article appeared originally on GatestoneInstitute.org

Recent anti-Israel protests have been attended by thousands across Europe. These protests come in opposition to attempts by Israeli forces to quell the rocket fire aimed at Israeli citizens by the Palestinian terror groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
In Britain, the protests in support of Hamas have been chiefly organized by a mixture of Sunni Islamist groups and groups aligned with the Socialist Workers Party. The attending protestors, though, seem to come from across the political and religious spectrums.
European hatred for the small Jewish state, or Jews in general, apparently continues to transcend all ideological differences to the point where pro-Assad activists can march alongside Sunni Islamists, while neo-Nazis stand shoulder to shoulder with Marxists.
Parliamentarians such as Andy Slaughter MP and George Galloway MP walked next to Islamist activists such as Ismail Patel, a supporter of the late French Holocaust Denier Roger Garaudy. Patel advocates the killing of adulterous women and has previously stated: "Hamas is no terrorist organization…we salute Hamas for standing up to Israel." Marching between Andy Slaughter and Ismail Patel was Hafiz al-Karmi, an official from the Palestinian Forum of Britain, one of the UK's leading pro-Hamas organizations.
Activists from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, closely aligned with Britain's Socialist Workers Party, seemed happy to march alongside James Thring and Lady Renouf, two neo-Nazi activists. Thring, described as "an anti-Zionist activist who has been vocally supported by former the Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke," has beenfeatured in revisionist pro-Nazi documentaries and is aligned with the "New Right" society, a British neo-Nazi organization.
Lady Renouf claims that Judaism is a "repugnant and hateful religion," and is described by Searchlight Magazineas "the chief cheerleader for disgraced Holocaust denier David Irving. Renouf has contributed to the defense of several other Holocaust deniers and has since become one of the most influential figures in this murky anti-Semitic subculture."
Activists from the Neturei Karta, an extreme anti-Zionist sect, have also been a recurring presence at recent anti-Israel protests. Neturei Karta recently protested in support of the Hungary's "neo-Nazi" Jobbik party, the officials of which have "rejoiced" at the deaths of Israeli soldiers killed by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. In 2006, Neturei Karta's UK branch leader, Ahron Cohen, stated that those Jews who perished in the Holocaust "deserved it."
Other protestors have included activists from the Islamic Human Rights Commission, an Iranian-aligned Islamist group. Despite the Sunni-Shia fighting in Syria and Iraq, supporters of the pro-Assad terror group, Hezbollah, appeared to have no qualms about marching against Israel alongside supporters of Sunni jihadists waving the Black Standard, the preferred flag of Sunni Islamist terrorist organizations.
Other organizing groups behind the protests have included: the British Muslim Initiative, the president of which isMohammed Sawalha, a fugitive Hamas commander who, the BBC reports, is "said to have masterminded much of Hamas's political and military strategy;" War on Want, a taxpayer-funded charity criticized for its use of "anti-Semitic themes to attack Israel" and its associations with a number of extreme anti-Semitic organizations; as well as Stop the War Coalition, the vice-president of which, Kamal Majid, has urged support for the Assad regime because of their "long history of resisting imperialism."
In July, at one anti-Israel march through London, Algerian protestors, some waving Socialist Workers Party placards, chanted "Heil Hitler." 
Groups organizing these protests may claim that anti-Israel protests are not anti-Semitic, but these assertions are clearly contradicted by the number of anti-Semitic incidents in Britain that peak during moments of anti-Israel hysteria whipped up by these very same groups. The number of anti-Semitic attacks in July reached more than double the usual number.
Despite the organized mass-slaughter of Christians and Muslims by Islamist groups across the Middle East, the hotchpotch of extremist groups in Europe still find common cause in their outspoken hatred for Jews.
Groups such as the Palestine Solidarity Campaign are happy to protest the Jewish state, but have refused to express indignation over the tens of thousands of Palestinians currently being starved out by Assad's forces in the Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria. The Stop the War Coalition, meanwhile, continues to provide platforms to pro-Assad speakers.
In continental Europe, the hatred felt seems even worse. Protestors in Paris, Berlin and Antwerp chant death threats against Jews, set fire to synagogues and loot stores in Jewish neighborhoods.
As commentators have noted, the anger expressed at Israel's existence does not seem to apply to the far bloodier actions of Islamist terror groups across the Muslim world. Douglas Murray, writing in the Spectator,observed of the protestors: "These are the people who stayed at home throughout the Syrian civil war, stayed at home when ISIS rampaged across Iraq, stayed at home when Boko Haram and Al-Shabaab carried out their atrocities across central Africa and showed no concern whatsoever when the Muslim Brotherhood was running Egypt into the ground. Yet they pretend to care about Muslims."
How many Muslims and Christians must be murdered before these Western protestors look up from their obsession with the Jews?
Mehmet Gormez, head of Turkey's Religious Affairs Directorate, recently claimed that around the world each day an average of 1,000 Muslims are killed – of which, he declared, "Almost 90 percent…are killed by other Muslims, by their brothers."
Or, to put it in another context, if the figure is accurate, every four days, Islamists murder more Muslims than those who have died in the last ten years of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Muslims, it seems, can slaughter each other without eliciting any condemnation on the streets of London or Paris.

Terror Group Tied to Turkish Gov't Recruits Hamas Human Shields
The head of the 'charity' said the purpose the shields is to spark a war between Israel and Turkey and the broader Muslim world.
BY RYAN MAURO Thu, July 24, 2014



A terror-linked charity closely linked to the Turkish government is organizing human shields in the Gaza Strip and pledging to “erect the flag of Islam everywhere.” Prime Minister Erdogan is a top backer of Hamas and allows this charity, the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), to operate.

IHH’s website has a photo of the sign-up event in front of the Israeli embassy. The website refers to the Hamas terrorists targeted by Israel as “resistance fighters.” CNN Turkey reports that IHH has signed up at least 73 volunteers for human shields in Gaza, with 38 being women.
Another page on the website talks about an IHH press conference where its president, Bulent Yildirim, openly talked about its organizing of human shields. Its press release was endorsed by the Association of Muslim Scholars, a body led by the spiritual leader of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.
“We, as IHH started the human shield project,” Yildirim said.
He said that it is negotiating safe passage with the Syrian government and if the Assad regime refuses, they will arrive by boat. He also called on Muslim countries to “provide weaponry support for self-protection.”
Shockingly, Yildirim said the objective of sending the human shields is to spark a war between Israel and Turkey and the broader Muslim world. He explained:
“[W]e will tell Turkey that they will have to protect us. When we are passing by sea, if Israel fires at the Turkish ships protecting us, they will come face to face with the Israel and Turkey alliance. We are looking at how this war will end up. We are ready.”

The long-term goal of IHH is to create a caliphate, as Yildirim stated matter-of-factly:
“Israel has done what we could not do. Israel has laid the foundation of an Islamic Union by attacking Gaza. I believe that soon, all Muslim countries will unite to become members of the establishment of the Islamic Union,” Yildirim said.
IHH is also organizing protests in Turkey. At one event, which registered people to be human shields, Yildirim said, “Witness the enthusiasm of people gathered here to go to Gaza. We Muslims may show up in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem one day unannounced and we will erect the flag of Islam everywhere.”
IHH is headquartered in Istanbul but operates in 135 countries, including the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. It is best known for its role in the 2010 Mavi Marmara incident, when IHH sent a ship to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza.
According to the UN, the blockade was legal. It was set up to prevent Hamas from importing weapons through the sea. Yildirim said at the IHH press conference that the Mavi Marmara will soon sail to Gaza again.
IHH members on the Mavi Marmara were armed. When Israeli soldiers boarded the vessel, nine IHH members were killed attacking the Israelis. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan used the opportunity to confront Israel and elevate his stature among Islamists. IHH Deputy Director Huseyin Oruc said he was warmly embraced by the Deputy Prime Minister after the incident and “we have good coordination with Mr. Erdogan.”
Up to 10 MPs from Erdogan’s AK political party planned to board the ship but were told by the government not to. At least 21 people on IHH’s board of directors at the time were involved with Erdogan’s AK party. One IHH official was the chairman of the parliament’s foreign affairs committee.
According to its website, the Turkish parliament bestowed IHH with an “Award of Honor” in 2007. In 2009, Yildirim spoke at a Hamas event and declared, “All the peoples of the Islamic world would want a leader like Recep Tayyip Erdogan.”

IHH is reacting to the latest fighting between Israel and Hamas with extremist incitement, just as Erdogan is. Erdogan says Israel has “surpassed Hitler in barbarism” and has launched a campaign of "systematic genocide." IHH falsely claims that Israel is firing missiles randomly into Gaza “without considering women and children.”
IHH’s links to Hamas would only encourage Erdogan to embrace the group. In 2010, Erdogan declared that Hamas is not a terrorist group. His government supports Hamas politically and financially and even harbors Hamas leaders. Erdogan is also an unshakeable friend of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas.
Israel, Germany and the Netherlands have all banned IHH as a terrorist organization. The U.S. has not, even though 87 Senators have requested it, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and prominent leaders of both political parties.

The U.S. government has indirectly admitted that IHH is linked to terrorism. In 2008, the Treasury Department sanctioned the Union of Good, a network of charities, because it was “created by Hamas leadership to transfer funds to the organization.” IHH is a member of the Union of Good.
In 2009, a senior Treasury Department official addressed IHH’s terrorist ties with Turkish officials. A leaked State Department document records that the official mentioned how IHH is “providing material assistance to Hamas.”
In 2010, the State Department said it could not prove links between IHH and Al Qaeda but is “greatly concern[ed]” about IHH’s meetings with Hamas leaders. The State Department earlier said it was considering labeling IHH as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. It never happened.
The links of IHH to Hamas, labeled by the U.S. as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, are irrefutable. The two lavish praise upon each other. IHH sponsored a funeral for a Hamas leader named Mohammad Said Heyam. IHH’s campaign coordinator in Europe, Muhammad Sawalha, used to be a senior Hamas leader before moving to the United Kingdom.
French counterterrorism magistrate Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere has documented links between IHH and Al Qaeda as well. For example, he has referred to phone calls between IHH and an Al Qaeda safe house in 1996. Turkish police raids on IHH in 1997 found strong evidence of its involvement in violent jihad.
The Danish Institute for International Studies quotes  from his report:
It appears that the detained members of IHH were going to fight in Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Chechnya ... The essential goal of this Association was to illegally arm its membership for overthrowing democratic, secular, and constitutional order present in Turkey and replacing it with an Islamic state founded on the Shariah.

Under the cover of this organization known under the name of IHH, [IHH leaders] acted to recruit veteran soldiers in anticipation of the coming holy war. In particular, some men were sent into war zones in Muslim countries in order to acquire combat experience. On the spot, the formation of a military unit was assured. In addition, towards the purpose of obtaining political support from these countries, financial aid was transferred [from IHH], as well as caches of firearms, knives, and pre-fabricated explosives.
In 2001, federal prosecutors called upon the magistrate as an expert witness in the trial of Al Qaeda terrorist Ahmed Ressam. He was involved in the “Millennium Bomb Plot” to attack the Los Angeles International Airport.
Bruguiere testified that IHH had an “important role” in the Al Qaeda plot. He referred to phone calls from the terror cell’s apartment to IHH in Istanbul.
In 2011, two IHH members were arrested in Somalia after meeting with Al-Shabaab, Al Qaeda’s affiliate there. They traveled to an area known to be under the control of the terrorist group; IHH says they were delivering humanitarian aid to refugees.
The Erdogan government clashed with its own law enforcement earlier this year when it took action against IHH and Al Qaeda. In early January,  Turkish police stopped an IHH truck that was suspected of transferring weapons to Syria. The officers involved were retaliated against and moved to new jobs. The public prosecutor filed a complaint against the government for obstructing justice.
About two weeks later, Turkish police raided six IHH offices as part of a terrorism investigation and arrested 23 people for allegedly having links to Al Qaeda. It was reported that two were senior Al Qaeda operatives. The lead police officer was immediately fired and the raids were condemned by the Deputy Prime Minister. The eight involved prosecutors had their bodyguards reassigned and a second police chief was fired.

IHH operates in Turkey without any interference from Erdogan as it supports Hamas and recruits human shields. Yet, the U.S. hasn’t followed Germany, the Netherlands and Israel in listing IHH as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.
Erdogan’s government would erupt in anger if the U.S. treated IHH like the terrorist entity it undoubtedly is. Perhaps it’s too bitter of a pill to swallow for the U.S. to acknowledge that a NATO member is no longer on our side.

HAMAS BOMBING CIVILIANS, USING GAZANS AS HUMAN SHIELDS
Hamas is in violation of international law both in targeting civilians and in using its own population as human shields. 
The Islamist terrorist group Hamas has launched hundreds of rockets into Israel over the last few days from the Gaza strip, which it controls. In response, the Israeli army has announced the launch of "Operation Protective Edge," a new campaign to end attacks from Hamas-controlled Gaza and is preparing for a possible ground invasion.

ISIS EXECUTES 13 SUNNI CLERICS FOR REFUSAL TO JOIN THEM
The Islamic State, formerly of Iraq and Syria, has executed 13 Sunni clerics who refused to join them.
Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, now simple the Islamic state, executed 13 leading Sunni clerics last month. The leaders were executed for refusal to pledge loyalty to the Islamic State.
These executions are evidence that ISIS is cracking down on dissent, and will refuse to allow any contradictory opinions in what it regards as its territory.
Heiner Bielefeldt, the UN's special rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief expressed serious concern about the turn of events. "Here a Sunni movement is executing Sunni religious leaders. That should make us think." she said. "It's important to focus more attention on these particular killings, because here we are not talking about Sunnis versus [Shiites]. This is a very clear case of atrocities committed against their own people, against religious leaders from Sunni Islam who probably have a less simplistic understanding of what Islam means."
ISIS claims to have executed 1,700 captured Shiite Iraqi soldiers. They have posted videos online of executions they have performed. On previous occasions they have publically displayed the crucified bodies of their enemies.

FGM in Sweden: 28 Immigrant Girls in One Class Severely Cut
The girls were most likely second-generation immigrants cut during summer trips to their home countries during school vacation.
A Swedish school has found that immigrant girls have been subjected to severe forms of female genital mutilation (FGM).  Since March, school health services in a small Swedish town have seen 60 girls who have been cut, including 30 girls from one class alone.
Of those 30 girls, 28 had been subjected to one of the most severe forms of FGM, where the clitoris and labia are completely removed with the area sown together with the exception of a small opening.
Somalians and Eritreans comprise large numbers of immigrants to Europe. Women in those countries are subjected to FGM at a rate of 98 and 90 percent, respectively.

A government spokesperson told the BBC that it was because she did not have the correct travel documents, which they have deemed a "criminal offense." She was travelling on an emergency South Sudan passport with a US visa.
The following is a report from Cameron Thomas, the regional manager for Africa of the International Christian Concern:
"The situation in Khartoum remains tense as Meriam is reportedly still being questioned by security personnel at a Khartoum police station. Following Meriam and family’s release from what have many characterized as a “brief” detention at Khartoum airport, Meriam was reportedly charged with falsifying documents and providing false testimony, and Daniel with acting as an accessory."

Iranian Regime Executes Another Political Prisoner
After 12 years imprisonment and torture, Gholamreza Khosravi, aged 49, has been executed by the Iranian regime.
The Iranian government has executed Gholamreza Khosravi Savadjani, 49, a supporter of the People's Mojehedin of Iran (PMOI), one of the major resistance groups opposed to the current regime.

In an official release, Maryam Rajavi, President-Elect of the National Council of Resistance in Iran (NCRI), issued her condolences to the family of the deceased and his colleagues in the PMOI and NCRI. He was executed on the charge of moharebeh, enmity against God. He has been incarcerated and tortured for the past 12 because of his support for the PMOI.
Iranian officials reportedly decided to carry out the execution in April, after the brutal crackdown on political prisoners in the notorious Evin prison, in which inmates were severely beaten by riot police.

Hollywood Stars Call For Brunei Boycott Over Sharia Law
The legendary Beverly Hills Hotel is owned by the government of Brunei, which has just begun to implement harsh sharia law.
Wed, May 7, 2014

Hollywood stars were the prominent protesters against the famous Beverly Hills Hotel that is owned by Brunei, a Southeast Asian country that has just begun to implement sharia law and its harsh punishments.

As Clarion Project previously reported, as of April 1, the first phase of sharia law went into effect in the country. Eventually, punishments including the stoning to death for the crimes of adultery, homosexuality and blasphemy and the amputation of limbs for theft will be implemented.
Jay Leno, who participated in the protest organized outside the hotel, said, “I’d like to think that all people are basically good and that when they realize that this is going on, hopefully, they will do something about it ... I mean, it’s just … I don’t know. Berlin, 1933? Hello, does it seem that far off from what happened during the Holocaust?”

Other celebrities and business people are joining in the boycott, including comedians Stephen Fry and Ellen DeGeneres, and TV host Sharon Osbourne.
British billionaire Richard Branson, owner of the Virgin Group, said in a tweet: "No @virgin employee, nor our family, will stay at Dorchester Hotels until the Sultan abides by basic human rights." 
On Tuesday, the city of Beverly Hills voted unanimously to pressure the government of Brunei to divest itself from the famous hotel.  Protesters have called for a boycott of the century-old establishment, frequented since its inception by Hollywood's elite.
Council members stopped short of calling for a city-sanctioned boycott.
In recent days, a number of organizations have cancelled events scheduled for the hotel. The Feminist Majority Foundation announced it had cancelled the Beverly Hills hotel as the venue for its annual Global Women's Rights Awards. The Motion Picture & Television Fund's annual "Night Before the Oscars" charity event has also cancelled its event at the hotel. 
Tensions at the city council meeting ran high between those outraged over human rights abuses inherent in sharia versus those interested in preserving the jobs the hotel generates for local workers.
Christopher Cowdray, the chief executive of the London-based Dorchester Collection of hotels owned by Brunei, said it was unjust to single out the Beverly Hills Hotel and its employees. "There are other hotel companies in this city that are owned by Saudi Arabia ... you know, your shirt probably comes from a country which has human rights issues," said Cowdray.
"This is misguided," Robert Anderson, the great-grandson of the founder of the hotel, told Reuters after the vote. "We should be against human rights violations in all countries, not just the Brunei."

On Tuesday, the U.S. State Department said the U.S. ambassador in Brunei had privately relayed concerns to the Brunei government about implementing sharia law. Previously, State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki had said, "We don't take a position on this specific effort," while acknowledging it was the right of citizens to institute a boycott.
The initial phase of sharia law in Brunei, instituted on April 1, begins with fines and imprisonment for violations of sharia. Press reports mentioned offenses such as “indecent behavior,” pregnancies outside of marriage, the preaching of religions besides Islam and not attending mandatory prayers on Fridays.
The second phase institutes physical punishments, such as cutting off hands and floggings for offenses like theft. The Guardian says this is to be implemented later this year, but Reuters says it will happen in 2015.
The third phase mandates executions, including stoning, for offenses like adultery, sodomy and blasphemy. Reports differ as to whether this starts in 2015 or in 2016.

THE CLARION PROJECT
Tony Blair: Fighting Islamism – A Defining Challenge of Our Time
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair gave a landmark speech yesterday calling on the world to unite against Islamism.
Thu, April 24, 2014
Tony Blair, the Former British Prime Minister, delivered a keynote speech at Bloomberg HQ in London entitled 'Why the Middle East Still Matters.' In it he described radical Islam as the greatest threat facing the world today.

He argued "there are four reasons why the Middle East remains of central importance and cannot be relegated to the second order."
The first three: oil, proximity to Europe and Israel, whilst important, were not the focus of the speech. Blair rapidly moved on to the fourth and most important reason: Islamic extremism also known as Islamism.
He identifies the conflict in the Middle East as one between an open and tolerant viewpoint and a fundamentalist Islamist ideology. He said "wherever you look – from Iraq to Libya to Egypt to Yemen to Lebanon to Syria and then further afield to Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan – this is the essential battle."
Addressing those who regard these conflicts as distinct he said "there is something frankly odd about the reluctance to accept what is so utterly plain: that they have in common a struggle around the issue of the rightful place of religion, and in particular Islam, in politics."
It is this central point that he hammered home again and again over the course of his 40 minute speech.
He argued that this struggle does not end at the borders of the region. Rather, "The reason this matters so much is that this ideology is exported around the world." 
He asked listeners to "Take a step back and analyze the world today: with the possible exception of Latin America (leaving aside Hezbollah in the tri-border area in South America), there is not a region of the world not adversely affected by Islamism and the ideology is growing."
He notes that "The Muslim population in Europe is now over 40m and growing. The Muslim Brotherhood and other organizations are increasingly active and they operate without much investigation or constraint. Recent controversy over schools in Birmingham (and similar allegations in France) show heightened levels of concern about Islamist penetration of our own societies."
The main thrust of the speech focused on "two fascinating things."
"The first is the absolutely rooted desire on the part of Western commentators to analyze these issues as disparate rather than united by common elements. They go to extraordinary lengths to say why, in every individual case, there are multiple reasons for understanding that this is not really about Islam, it is not really about religion; there are local or historic reasons which explain what is happening. There is a wish to eliminate the obvious common factor in a way that is almost wilful."
Predictably, opponents took the opportunity to argue exactly that. For example, the Guardian's summary quoted a Saudi Daily paper which blamed Israel. Commentator Mehdi Hassan blamed Tony Blair himself for the problem, because of the Iraq war.
Blair went on to argue "The second thing is that there is a deep desire to separate the political ideology represented by groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood from the actions of extremists including acts of terrorism."
He acknowledged the motivation behind these fears, saying "We feel almost that if we identify it in these terms, we’re being anti-Muslim, a sentiment on which the Islamists cleverly play."
Blair swept these distinctions aside, acknowledging the laudable motives behind such interpretations, but ultimately pinpointing the profound danger posed by the Islamist ideology, and that it is fundamentally incompatible with the modern world.
He urged the West and indeed the entire world, to unite against the ideology Islamic extremism.
Former Foreign Office Minister Denis MacShane compared the speech to Churchill's 1946 Iron Curtain address. Douglas Murray argued in the Spectator that Blair went too far in his efforts to brand Islamism as disconnected from Islam and called on moderate Muslims to help combat radicalism by driving extremists from their communities.
Blair outlined potential foreign policy options for the West vis-a-vis various Middle Eastern countries in order to combat Islamists and to support religiously open and tolerant elements.
In particular he focused on Egypt saying "on the fate of Egypt hangs the future of the region. Here we have to understand plainly what happened. The Muslim Brotherhood government was not simply a bad government. It was systematically taking over the traditions and institutions of the country. The revolt of 30 June 2013 was not an ordinary protest. It was the absolutely necessary rescue of a nation."
All of these different policies are facets of the same policy: that "across the region we should be standing steadfast by our friends and allies as they try to change their own countries in the direction of reform. Whether in Jordan or the Gulf where they’re promoting the values of religious tolerance and open, rule based economies, or taking on the forces of reaction in the shape of Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood, we should be supporting and assisting them."
Perhaps this statement by Blair sums up the message of his keynote speech best: "When we consider the defining challenges of our time, surely this one should be up there along with the challenge of the environment or economic instability."

Reverend Deborah Lindsay, Minister of Spiritual Care at First Community Church in Ohio, is a YouTube viral video star because of her call on Christians to avoid anti-Muslim sentiment.

[size=16.363636016845703]“When we think jihad, we think holy war. And that may be what it means to fanatics and terrorists, but what the vast majority of Muslims understand jihad to be is ‘struggling in the way of God…The way of God being goodness, justice, mercy and compassion. It is a personal, spiritual endeavor,” she said.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]An example of jihad, she says, would be making friends or being appreciative of what you have.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]That type of misunderstanding is promoted by the MyJihad campaign led by a chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity whose leadership has privately discussed how to use deceptive semantics. The campaign distracts from examination of the Islamist ideology by redefining jihad so vaguely that it becomes a meaningless term.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The audience, especially non-Muslims like Rev. Lindsay, is led to believe that this vague “spiritual” struggle is an alternative interpretation of jihad. Actually, these interpretations are complimentary and are not in competition.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Look at the official ruling of the Reliance of the Traveler, an authoritative book on Sharia endorsed by Al-Azhar University, the highest school of Sunni learning. Section o.9.0 states:[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]“Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada, signifying warfare to establish the religion. And it is the lesser jihad. As for the greater jihad, it is spiritual warfare against the lower self (nafs), which is why the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said he was returning from jihad.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The dual nature of jihad is best exemplified by the fact that the MyJihad website hosted a videotaped sermon from Imam Zaid Shakir about jihad and terrorism. Shakir justified Hezbollah’s bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon, saying it did not qualify as an act of terrorism.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Shakir, co-founder and senior faculty member of Zaytuna College, has his own record of extremism and approval of violent jihad. The MyJihad campaign’s own sources acknowledge the two forms of jihad but the campaign only talks about the spiritual form, giving the false impression that a new, replacement interpretation is being offered.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]While it is true that most Muslims do not favor waging the subversive and often violent “lesser” jihad, we must be aware of the tricks played by those who do.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]In her sermon, Rev. Lindsay praises the Islamic Circle of North America as a moderate organization that is spreading “peace” and “hope” by giving away tens of thousands of the copies of the Koran. She is under the impression that ICNA’s interpretation of jihad is at odds with the subversive one.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Actually, ICNA is named in a 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The stated goal of the network ICNA belongs to is to wage a “kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers.” The document explicitly states that the network is to “possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’” and use “their hands” (those of the non-Muslim Americans) for its objectives.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]ICNA is a derivative of the radical Jamaat-e-Islami group of Pakistan. It is currently pressuring the White House to defend its leaders in Bangladesh from prosecution. A senior ICNA official named Ashrafuzzaman Khan was sentenced to death in absentia for his involvement in horrific war crimes in 1971.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The Clarion Project recently published jaw-dropping excerpts from an ICNA teaching guide for members. It explicitly calls for supporting violent jihad, secret operations, resurrecting the Caliphate and implementing Sharia governance, even in the U.S.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Rev. Lindsay’s main outreach partner is the Noor Islamic Cultural Center, a radical mosque that has her as a guest speaker. If the name sounds familiar, it may be from the case of Rifqa Bary, a teenage girl who converted to Christianity from Islam and ran away from her family. Her father, who she fears may kill her for becoming an apostate, is a member of the mosque.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Noor Islamic Cultural Center founder and chairman, Dr. Hany Saqr, was identified by an Egyptian newspaper as a Muslim Brotherhood operative. A 1992 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood phone book lists him as a member. Saqr was identified as a leader of the East Region for the Brotherhood, a member of its Executive Office and a member of its Board of Directors. The phone records of Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzouk, then a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood official, show he was in communication with Saqr in 1992.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]According to a court filing by Bary’s lawyer, an FBI document identified one of Sarq’s subordinates as “providing $735,000 to Hamas while under Dr. Saqr’s direction.” It also states that Saqr used to be an imam for another mosque and “the largest known Al-Qaeda cell in the U.S. since 9/11 was operating out of the mosque.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Salah Sultan used to be the Noor Islamic Cultural Center’s scholar in residence and a religious director at a local Islamic elementary school named the Sunrise Academy. Unfortunately for Sultan, counter-terrorism expert Patrick Poole lived only about a mile away and turned Salah into a stunning example of Islamist operations inside the U.S.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]When Poole first brought attention to Sultan’s extremism, the Noor Islamic Cultural Center’s media and the Interfaith Association of Central Ohio slandered Poole, with one columnist calling him a “Muslim basher.” The documentation about Sultan was firm then and is overwhelming now.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]There are photos of him with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal and Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. He is on the board of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, led by the terrorism-linked Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi who is the spiritual leader of the Brotherhood and Hamas. In Egypt, Sultan frequently appeared alongside Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood when he was running for president.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]At one Morsi rally, Sultan referenced the Islamic hadith that appears in the Hamas charter that reads, “The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Sultan has urged the murdering of the Israeli ambassador to Egypt. In one television appearance, he endorsed a Brotherhood fatwa that says “every Zionist who enters Egypt—tourist or not—should be killed.” At one event, he led a crowd in chanting, “To Jerusalem, we are going as martyrs in millions.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]He was scheduled to lead a hajj to Mecca in 2002 with Anwar al-Awlaki, who would soon become a senior Al-Qaeda operative and a Hamas-linked cleric named Imam Muhammad al-Hanooti. When Osama Bin Laden was killed, Sultan praised him because he “had raised the banner of jihad for the sake of Allah and had served a lofty goal” and American “terrorism” is worse than his.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Sultan preaches that 9/11 was a U.S. government conspiracy to oppress Muslims. The attacks on Christians in Egypt are covert “acts of Jews,” according to Sultan, as was the assassination of President Kennedy. He supports democratic participation by Muslims in the U.S., but only in order to move the country towards the standards of Sharia.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The aforementioned court filing also alleges that the Noor Center has extremist speakers like Imam Siraj Wahhaj, Muzammil Siddiqi, Raeed Tayeh, Eric Erfan Vickers, Shaker ElSayed, Wagdi Ghoneim and a preacher linked to efforts by Al-Shabaab, Al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Somalia, to recruit Somali youth. In 2013, two mosque members were indicted for money-laundering.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]This mistaken embrace of Islamists is part of a broader issue. Rev. Lindsay’s church is affiliated with the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Both are members of the Shoulder-to-Shoulder Coalition, an interfaith bloc allied with the Islamic Society of North America, another U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. The coalition is deployed by American Islamists when they came under criticism.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The two groups cited by Rev. Lindsay, ICNA and the Noor Islamic Cultural Center, do believe in the non-threatening “greater” spiritual jihad—but that’s not the whole story. They also advocate the “lesser” subversive and violent jihad. They are just intelligent enough to know which one is better to magnify publicly.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Rev. Deborah Lindsay did not respond to my email with information about the Noor Islamic Cultural Center.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Ryan Mauro is the ClarionProject.org’s National Security Analyst, a fellow with the Clarion Project and is frequently interviewed on top-tier TV stations as an expert on counterterrorism and Islamic extremism.[/size]

The high number of former prison inmates involved in Islamic terrorism shows inroads the Saudi 'Wahhabi machine' in the U.S.

The Virginia-based Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, an extremist mosque attended by three of the 9/11 hijackers with extensive links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, is fundraising for its outreach to inmates. The fundraising pitch quotes an extremist cleric and says the mosque has been working with the Washington, D.C. jail for 10 years.
[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]“For over a decade Dar Al-Hijrah has been supporting the spiritual growth of Muslim inmates in the DC jail, CTF [Correctional Treatment Facility] and youth offenders,” the announcement states.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]
The request is specifically for donations to send 100 Qurans to the inmates.
[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]There’s a sign of danger even in the announcement itself. It uses a quote from the Islamist theologian Ibn Taymiyya, “Let my imprisonment be a spiritual retreat.”[/size]

[size=16.363636016845703]The choice of this particular Islamic cleric gives us insight into the ideology of the mosque’s leadership.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Atta Barkindo, a respected researcher on political Islam, writes, “some scholars suggest there is probably no other Islamic theologian, medieval or otherwise, who has had as much influence on radical political ideology of Islam as Ibn Taymiyya.” This includes the leaders of Al-Qaeda.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]In fact, Osama Bin Laden quoted Taymiyya in 2003, pointing to when he said, “to drive off the enemy aggressor who destroys both religion and the world—there is no religious duty more important than this, apart from belief itself. This is an unconditional rule.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The basis of Taymiyya’s preaching is that sharia must be the form of governance, a premise that “runs contrary to the demands of the fundamental principles of democracy.” He argued that the failure to do this is responsible for the descent of the Muslim world, and it would continue until Muslims overthrew their leaders that did not implement sharia governance.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]On the topic of jihad, Steve Simon of the Brookings Institute explains that Taymiyya is responsible for the “elevation of jihad—not the spiritual struggle that many modern Muslims take it to be, but physical combat against unbelievers—to the rank of the canonical five pillars of Islam.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Due to Taymiyya, jihad would become considered the “sixth pillar” of Islam by millions of Muslims. The primary focus of Muslims should be the “near enemy” instead of the “far enemy,” Taymiyya said.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]His ideology would later inspire Salafism, the virulent form of Islam promoted by Saudi Arabia.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The documented history of Dar al-Hijrah shows that this mosque has been consistently radical in its beliefs. In January 2013, its imam, Shaker El-Sayed preached in favor of violent jihad at a Virginia high school. Using language that Taymiyya would agree with, El-Sayed told the audience that Muslims should be “first in the jihad line” and condemned Muslims who “bow down to Western pressure.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]A Customs and Border Protection document of the mosque in 2002 explicitly said it is “operating as a front for Hamas operatives in the U.S.” A December 2007 document said it “has been linked to numerous individuals linked to terrorism financing” and “has also been associated with encouraging fraudulent marriages.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Dar al-Hijrah’s involvement in the Washington, D.C. prison system is part of a broader problem.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The Islamic Society of North America, a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity and unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-financing trial, has a Chaplaincy Services Department that endorses chaplains for the Bureau of Prisons (and the U.S. military).[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]In 2003, Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Jon Kyl (R-AZ) demanded that the Office of the Inspector General review the Bureau of Prisons’ relationship with ISNA. At the time, ISNA was the only Muslim group that filed the necessary paperwork to be approved as a chaplain endorser.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]In a 2003 hearing, Schumer used the example of Warith Deen Umar, the administrative chaplain of the New York Department of Correctional Services who hired prison clerics. He was banned from New York prisons in 2002 after he was caught teaching Muslim inmates that the 9/11 terrorists are heroes that should be emulated. Schumer also mentioned that a New York State prison chaplain in Auburn was arrested earlier in the year for illegally transferring millions of dollars to Iraq.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]ISNA did not distance itself from Umar after he was exposed. He spoke at its 2009 convention where he preached that the U.S. is hostage to a Jewish conspiracy and that the Holocaust victims “were punished for a reason because they were serially disobedient to Allah.” He also said “there should be more jihad.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Schumer expressed his concern about ISNA’s involvement in the prison system. He pointed out that Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an extremely radical cleric, is an ISNA board member, as is Bassam Osman. He used to be the director of the Koran Literary Institute in Illinois whose assets were frozen in 1998 because of evidence it was financing Hamas.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Schumer warned that the Islamist involvement in the prison system was part of an overall offensive.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703] “As the Saudis turned a blind eye, the Wahhabi machine is becoming well-financed, politically powerful, difficult to prosecute and making dramatic inroads here in the United States. Let me give you an example of how Wahhabism has reached some degree of havoc in my own backyard in New York State,” Schumer said.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]That’s just the tip of the iceberg.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]In 2008, anti-Islamist Muslim Stephen Schwartz reviewed a list of all the Islamic literature and videos used by the Bureau of Prisons. The list included:[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]200 entries by Maulana Maududi, the founder of the Pakistani Islamist group, Jamaat-e-Islami
175 entries by Imam Siraj Wahhaj 
30 entries by Sayyid Qutb, the Muslim Brotherhood cleric that inspired Osama Bin Laden
33 entries by Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradawi, the terrorism-supporting spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood;
185 entries from Jamal Badawi, an ISNA board member and supporter of Hamas and “combative jihad.” He is also an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-financing trial and is close to Qaradawi.
19 entries by Ibn Abd al-Wahhab, the founder of Wahhabism
9 entries idolizing al-Wahhab
280 entries by South African Islamist Abdullah Hakim Quick
250 entries by South African Islamist Ahmed Deedat
125 entries by Jamal Zarabozo, a white American Islamist 
Texts by Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam
A 2010 FBI report found that the sermons of Anwar al-Awlaki, a former Dar al-Hijrah imam who led an Al-Qaeda affiliate in Yemen until he was killed by a U.S. drone strike, could be found in prison libraries across the country.
[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The Nation of Islam, an extremely anti-American and anti-Semitic group, has a Prison Reform Ministry. In December, the ministry director visited seven institutions in Pennsylvania.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Muslims of the Americas, a front for a Pakistani terrorist group named Jamaat ul-Fuqra, has a large number of ex-convicts as members. The group has 22 “Islamic villages” around the country and there is videotape of female members receiving paramilitary instruction at its headquarters in Hancock, New York.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The Sankore Institute of Islamic African Studies International, a very radical Pennsylvania-based group that says jihad is obligatory and believes constitutional democracy is antithetical to Islam, says its curriculum is being taught to 400 Muslim inmates in two California facilities alone.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Ex-convicts are reported to make up a large percentage of its membership. The “outreach” section of its website only lists one initiative: "inmate services."[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The high number of former prison inmates involved in Islamic terrorism led to Congressional hearings in 2011. At the time, the hearings were derided as “racist and as discriminatory.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The Islamists are paying attention to the prison system. So should we, before it is too late.[/size]

Disillusioned Jihadis Return From Syria: 'Martyrs, Why Us?'
Christian girls in Egypt are being kidnapped, raped, made to convert and forced into marriages due to the “twin-headed cultural hydra” of “deep-seeded Muslim and male supremacism,” warns a 2012 study that is getting renewed attention.
[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]International Christian Concern is reporting that 2014 has already seen a spike in the number of Christian girls in Egypt being abducted. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, rapes, forced conversions, forced marriages and even being forced into working without pay (slavery) are all major problems.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Just four attorneys said they had over 550 cases over five years of Christian girls applying to have their religious identity restored by the Egyptian government after being kidnapped and forced into converting to Islam. One attorney said he personally knew of at least 1,600 cases of forced conversions.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]On February 28, a 15-year old girl named Amira Hafez and her mother went to church in Egypt. Hafez took a quick trip to the store and never returned. When her parents filed the police report, they were fairly certain of who the police should interview: Yasser Mahmoud, an Egyptian soldier stationed nearby that used to protect their church.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The parents said that Mahmoud had walked into the Christian store where Hafez was working and confessed his love to her. Then, five months ago, another Muslim man came to the store and tried to abduct her. She was saved by her neighbors.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Hafez’ parents knew that Mahmoud lived with his parents and visited the home after she disappeared. They said they had not seen him since the time of the incident.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Her parents believe the police are brushing them off. They told International Christian Concern that the “police haven’t done anything up until now.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]In another incident on March 9, a young girl was kidnapped in front of her father by two men on motorcycles. About a week later, the father had her birth certificate reviewed and it showed that her name was changed and she was now registered as a Muslim.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]According to the heart-wrenching 2012 study by Christian Solidarity International, the Egyptian authorities often assume that the girls fell in love and/or were trying to escape the strict confines of a Christian family.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Girls that are victims of forced conversions that are lucky enough to escape face additional problems. Firstly, any known conversion from Islam to Christianity (even if one was originally Christianity) makes her an “apostate.” That puts a giant target on her back because sharia’s punishment for apostates is death.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Secondly, the Egyptian government won’t let the girls’ change their registered religion back to Christianity. That makes the healing process extraordinarily more difficult and makes it tougher to assimilate back into the Christian community. It also stops the victim from having privacy. Wherever she goes, she will have to relive her trauma by explaining her story to whoever finds out she is registered as a Muslim.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The study also found lighter forms of persecution increasing, as well. More and more, Christian women were being harassed as they left church. Females wearing necklaces with the cross were cornered and had them ripped off.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]As the 2012 study stated, there are two factors behind the abuse of Christian girls in Egypt: Societal misogyny and Islamist indoctrination.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Todd Daniels, Middle East Regional Manager for International Christian Concern, told me that the Egyptian government officially recognizes minors as being those under the age of 18. However, the laws are not usually enforced.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]“For those that would embrace an extremist interpretation of Islam, girls are defined as adults once they have reached puberty, allowing for them to be married at much younger ages. These cases are carried out with nearly full impunity, even when there is clear evidence as to the responsible parties,” Daniels said.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The Islamist ideology also explains why women leaving church are being harassed and why cross necklaces are being broken.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The ideology may permit the existence of churches, but Christianity itself is still looked upon with disdain and blasphemous. Mainstream teaching of sharia states that Christians cannot display the cross in an Islamic state. The Muslims that broke the girls’ cross necklaces believed they were acting on Allah’s will.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Reliance of the Traveler, an authoritative book on sharia endorsed by Egypt’s Al-Azhar University, states in section o11.5(6):[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]“]Non-Muslim subjects] are forbidden to openly display wine or pork, (A: to ring church bells or display crosses,), recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays.”[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]It is no coincidence the increase in attacks on Christians began right after the fall President Mubarak in February 2011 and sharply increased after the Muslim Brotherhood won the Egyptian presidency in June 2012.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]“I accuse the Muslim Brotherhood and their Islamic groups of abducting the Christian girls in Egypt and forcing them to convert to Islam and marry a Muslim,” said Mina Melad of the Egyptian Federation of Human Rights.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Part of the reason that this abuse isn’t a major issue is because the U.S. State Department doesn’t want it to be.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The 2012 study was commissioned in reaction to the State Department’s 2010 International Religious Freedom report said that many stories of Muslims forcing Christian women to convert were unverified.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]“The State Department’s assertion that cases remain unverified, without providing evidence of an attempt to verify, appeared to be calculated to put a particularly sensitive political issue to rest, without regard for the well-being of the female victims,” the study said.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]The Christian women of Egypt deserve our attention, no matter how many Islamists and misogynists it offends.[/size]
[size=16.363636016845703]Ryan Mauro is the ClarionProject.org’s National Security Analyst, a fellow with the Clarion Project and is frequently interviewed on top-tier TV stations as an expert on counterterrorism and Islamic extremism.[/size]
