Senior American Muslim Leader Placed on Libyan Terror List
Home > World > Libya > Senior American Muslim Leader Placed on Libyan Terror List

Dr. Esam Omeish (Screenshot from video)
Senior U.S. Muslim leader Esam Omeish has been listed as an “international member of the Muslim Brotherhood” by one of the rival governments currently battling for supremacy in Libya, as reported by the Investigative Project on Terrorism. A second American, Aly Abuzaakouk, was also featured on the list.
Omeish was formerly head of the Muslim Brotherhood linked Muslim American Society (MAS). He is now a senior figure in the Dar al-Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia. He intends to sue and wants those who designated him “legally prosecuted for fraud, slander and defamation” and prevented from travelling to America.
Abuzaakouk was formerly the Foreign Minister for the Libyan Government of National Salvation. The Government of National Salvation was a government set up by the General National Congress (GNC) and was a Muslim-Brotherhood-dominated parliament established by Islamist militias following their electoral defeat in the June 2014 election. They regard that election as illegitimate, citing low voter turnout.

Report: Top Muslim Scholar Calls for Death of Christians
Home > World > Egypt > Report: Top Muslim Scholar Calls for Death of Christians
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Monday, June 12, 2017 
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, one of the leading theologians of the Muslim world, who is considered the spiritual guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, has called for the murder of Christians. He was recently blacklisted as a terrorist by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt. Qaradawi, 90, was included in a list totaling 59 names of individuals and 12 entities listed as terrorists connected to Qatar.
Ahmed Adnan, a Saudi journalist, writer and political advisor based in Lebanon made the claim Qaradawi supports killing Christians in an interview with Al-Ahram al-Arabi.
“A call of Yusuf al-Qaradawi was intercepted in which he gave a fatwa to blow up churches and kill Christians,” he said in the interview. “This information is not from me but from a special source. This fatwa inspired training sessions in Libyan Islamist militia camps. These training sessions resulting in terror attacks that blew up churches and the incident of al-Minya.”
On May 26, masked gunmen opened fire on a convoy of Copts in Minya governate, killing 28.

How Islamist Apologists for Sex Slavery Raise Money
Home > Political Islam > In the US > Organizations > How Islamist Apologists for Sex Slavery Raise Money
BY DAVID SWINDLE Monday, June 12, 2017 
Few ideas induce more horror than the selling of human beings for sex against their will. But the slave markets of the Islamic State are not the only places on earth one can hear human trafficking rationalized. Numerous Islamist institutions in the West frequently provide platforms for speakers who defend this abominable practice by citing Islamic law. And for years they have worked to infiltrate the mainstream of philanthropy.
Since January, the Middle East Forum has worked – first in private and then in public – to persuade the Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF) to stop funding two such extremist organizations, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and Islamic Relief (IR), and instead support reformist Muslim groups.
Both CAIR and IR provide regular platforms to fundamentalist imams and activists who justify concubinage and other brutal practices.

Muslim Man Kidnaps, Rapes, Marries Teenage Girl

A Muslim man on a “bridge visa” in Australia was arrested for kidnapping a teenage girl, raping her and forcing her to marry him, Australian outlet News.com reported. The man, named as Chafic Charyala, 31, allegedly was rebuffed by her family, which is also Muslim, after he proposed marriage to the girl.
The girl, who is 18, said the man climbed into her bedroom window in Bankstown, a suburb of Sydney, in the middle of the night and threatened to kill her unless she went with him.
Terrified, she climbed out of the window and got into Charyala’s car. He first took her to a hotel in Sydney where he raped her and then continued to the home of a sheikh, where he married her according to sharia law.
At some point, the girl managed to call her family, who alerted the police.
The police intercepted Charyala’s car as he headed some 560 miles south to Melbourne, where he intended that the two would live with a cousin.
Although the marriage is not valid under Australian law, Charyala thought the ceremony would help him obtain residency in Australia.

Special privileges given to Muslim inmates in two of Australia’s prisons are causing unrest  among non-Muslim prisoners, the Herald Sun reported.
During the current Islamic month of Ramadan, when Muslims are required to fast from sunrise to sunset, Muslims prisoners in two of Victoria’s prisons have been given personal microwaves in their cells to warm up their food when the fast ends.
In addition, Muslim prisoners have been given specially prepared meals, “like what you would find in a nice Turkish restaurant,” according to a source quoted by the Sun.
“The special feasts they are getting is really upsetting the other prisoners,” said the source.
Muslim prisoners are reportedly still being paid for working, even though they are not required to work during Ramadan.

FGM vs Political Correctness — Which Will Prevail?

In February, federal investigators uncovered a Michigan-based network of doctors and others who practice female genital mutilation (FGM) on girls as young as six at medical clinics in the state. FGM is the cutting of a girl’s genitalia with the aim to “purify” her and repress her sexuality. All defendants in the case are members of the Dawoodi Bohra, a religious Muslim group. One of the girls who underwent the procedure was reportedly told that she was going on a “special girls’ trip” to “get the germs out.”

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has promised not to let human rights legislation stand in the way of defeating terrorism if re-elected. She made the pledge after facing heavy criticism following three terrorist attacks on British soil in just three months.
Take the poll at the bottom of this article. Thank you.
Her comments came after the former commander of the British Army in Afghanistan and the former most senior South Asian police officer in the UK both called to lock terror suspects in internment camps. Such draconian policies would be a radical departure from existing policy. They would also see stiff opposition from human rights groups since internment camps are a form of imprisonment without trial. The right to trial is considered one of the bedrocks of a free society.

In a clip posted by MEMRI (Middle East Research Instititute), the resident imam of the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center promoted female genital mutilation (FGM), saying it was “the honorable thing for girls” to prevent “hypersexuality.”
Imam Shaker Elsayed, originally from Egypt where 91 percent of women have undergone FGM, has been the resident imam at Dar Al-Hijrah since June 2005. He served as secretary-general of the Muslim American Society in 2000-2005, an organization federal prosecutors said was “founded as the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in America.”

Saudi women’s rights activist Loujain al-Hathloul was picked up by authorities at the country’s airport in Damman, Amnesty International reported.
Although no reason was given for her detention, Al-Hathloul is known for her outspoken criticism of the kingdom’s draconian laws governing women. In 2014, she was arrested for driving into the kingdom from the neighboring United Arab Emirates, defying the country’s ban on women driving.
At that time, she was held for more than two months, with campaigners for her release said her detention focused more on Al-Hathloul’s use of social media than on driving.
“It appears she is being targeted once again because of her peaceful work as a human rights defender speaking out for women’s rights, which are consistently trammeled in the kingdom,” said Amnesty’s Samah Hadid.

In a joint statement with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the White House last week, US President Donald Trump declared, “We support Turkey in the first fight against terror and terror groups like ISIS [Islamic State] and the PKK [Kurdistan Workers’ Party], and ensure they have no safe quarter.”
By which measure of conduct, which relativism, are we judging these organizations, from ISIS to the PKK? Since it is Turkey that the White House has just reiterated support for, it’s time for a refresher on Turkey’s record on terrorism, genocide and human rights.
Let’s start with Turkish support of jihadist groups.

Linda Sarsour Gets Standing Ovation at CUNY
Home > US > Linda Sarsour Gets Standing Ovation at CUNY
BY A.J. CASCHETTA Sunday, June 4, 2017 
 Sarsour walks onto the stage to deliver the commencement address

Editor’s note: Self-styled Muslim “feminist” and Islamist apologist Linda Sarsour was invited and gave the commencement address to graduates of the City University of New York’s Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy on June 1. She was given a standing ovation.
In an era when saying the wrong thing, deemed offensive by someone, can end a career, social justice warriors always seem to get a pass. Few have received more than Linda Sarsour, a Muslim self-styled “feminist” who supports a political system that systematically represses women, celebrates child warriors on social media, and once tweeted of two ideological foes, “I wish I could take away their vaginas – they don’t deserve to be women.”
The more Sarsour offends, the more she is celebrated. Barack Obama honored her as a Champion of Change. Today she will give the keynote address at the City University of New York (CUNY) School of Public Health graduation ceremony.
Sarsour’s endorsement of Sharia law and leadership in the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement should have made her an unfit candidate to address graduates of any educational institution even if she weren’t a social media provocateur. Ayaan Hirsi Ali, one of the women whose vagina Sarsour wants to confiscate, calls her a “fake feminist.” Brigitte Gabriel, the other woman, calls Sarsour a “master manipulator” successfully swaying “the gullible women’s movement.”
Ariel Behar of IPT News wrote that Sarsour specializes in trying “to shut down those who cite her record of celebrating terrorists and advocating radical positions by calling the critics Islamophobes.” Sarsour is also a conspiracy theorist, endorsing, for instance, the bizarre view that failed “underwear bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was “a CIA agent.”
Sarsour’s defenders claim that her views stem from anger and “should come as no surprise for a Palestinian-American;” after all what she really opposes is “right-wing Zionism.” Sarsour has said that Zionists – including the vast majority of Jews – can’t be feminists. She didn’t say only “right-wing Zionists” can’t be feminists.
Why would the CUNY want to showcase someone who, as Daniel Pipes documents, has such a “long record of incompetence, extremism, vulgarity, and eccentricity”? Dov Hikind, a Brooklyn Democrat in the New York Assembly, says “it’s just nuts. It makes no sense. It’s crazy to have this woman be the person who’s going to speak to the students.”

Trump Calls Out Abbas for Indoctrinating Children to Hate
Home > Human Rights > Human Rights Violators > Child Abuse > Trump Calls Out Abbas for Indoctrinating Children to Hate
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Sunday, June 4, 2017 
U.S. President Donald Trump was furious with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas during his recent visit to Israel. According to an Israeli television report which quoted an unnamed American source present at the meeting between Trump and Abbas, Trump yelled at Abbas for lying to him about Palestinian incitement against Israel.
“You tricked me in DC! You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement [against Israel],” Trump is said to have shouted at Abbas. The report said Abbas was shocked into silence for a number of minutes before the meeting continued.
Abbas later confirmed the tongue lashing in a meeting with PLO leaders.
During a joint press conference at the White House during Abbas’ recent trip to Washington, the Palestinian Authority president stated, “We are raising our youth, our children, our grandchildren on a culture of peace.”
Trump called out the Palestinian culture of incitement during their joint press conference following their meeting in Bethlehem.
The incitement by Abbas, his media and government officials has been documented extensively by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). Most recently, the organization exposed that the Palestinian village of Burqa named its new women’s center after Dalal Mughrabi, a Palestinian woman terrorist who was responsible for the Costal Road Massacre of 1978. In that attack on an Israeli bus, 38 people were killed, including 13 children and 71 were wounded.
After PMW exposed that Norway and the UN had participated in funding the center (Norway later demanded its money back), the head of the village council, Sami Daghlas, called Mughrabi a “hero” and refused to consider a new name.”The center has no intention of caving in to the pressure and change its name,” he said.
Clarion’s next film KiDS: Inside the Terror Factory (working title) documents the exploitation and radicalization of children by Islamist extremists. KiDS will feature compelling personal stories of children and their families who are being actively influenced by extremists and activists who are working to confront this growing global threat. The film is currently in production.

Islamist Media Spins: What to Look Out for

In the days immediately following the Manchester bombing, the perpetrator’s family and mosque began trying to spin the media in a direction favorable to the Islamist narrative. There were three types of spins that are worth pointing out, as they are continually used by the Islamists and their apologists whenever they and their ideology come under scrutiny. We can assume we will be seeing these familiar spins in the coming days after the latest terror attack in London.
1.Cry “Islamophobia” and Claim Anti-Muslim Persecution
Islamists often honestly see “Islamophobia” and bigotry in the West everywhere, as they view the West as inherently anti-Islamic and hostile towards them. It’s the best political example of projection if there ever was one.
At other times, Islamists simply lie and use false accusations of bigotry to defame their opponents and deter future ones.
This mindset was apparent in Salman Abedi from a young age. When he was a teenager, he and his friends filed a complaint against their teacher for being “Islamophobic.” As the story goes (and we don’t have the full story), the teacher asked the Arabic-speaking boys their opinion on suicide bombers.
Ironically enough, Abedi did express support for suicide bombers years later in college and then became one. We don’t know how the conversation began in the classroom or what prompted the teacher to ask the question. It could very well have been an innocent attempt by the teacher to use the boys as an example that most Muslims don’t support suicide bombings, or perhaps she was responding to their own initial raising of the topic.

 Top Muslim Lawyer: Muslim Orgs Impede Counterterror

Nazir Afzal. (Photo: Screenshot from video)
A leading Muslim figure in the UK has slammed Muslim community organizations for refusing to help the government in its counterterror strategy. His comments came  just before a terrorist attack hit the UK capital of London, killing six.
Nazir Afzal is Britain’s most prominent Muslim lawyer and a deradicalization expert. As chief crown prosecutor for North West England from 2011 to 2015, he was responsible for prosecuting cases on behalf of the state, including those against Islamists. His cases included the child grooming scandal in Rochdale.
Afzal stated that the government’s “Prevent” strategy “stopped at least 150 people from going to Syria.”
Prevent is the British government’s countering violent extremism strategy which seeks to engage with potential terrorists before they commit attacks and dissuade them from the ideology which might lead them to commit acts of terror. The methodology includes a deradicalization program called “Channel,” under which radicals voluntarily undergo counseling with accredited Muslim interlocutors. It also includes awareness training for staff, such as nurses or teachers so they are equipped to spot early warning signs and inform the appropriate authorities.
“Sadly, there’s an industry which is trying to undermine Prevent. Some of them don’t like anything that’s state-sponsored and some of them are Islamists,” Afzal told The Times.
“Prevent is simply safeguarding. When we’re asking people to identify victims of child sexual abuse by looking for signs, it’s the same thing for radicalization. Look for the signs. If you’re concerned, share those concerns with somebody and then if they come to fruition we can provide some support. It’s not about criminalizing.”

U.S. President Donald Trump came up with a new term to describe jihadi terrorists following the Manchester attack which killed 22 people at a concert, saying “So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. I won’t call them monsters, because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them, from now on, losers. They’re losers. And we’ll have more of them. But they’re losers. Just remember that.”
In a poll, we asked our readers if they agreed with the new terminology. Here are the results:
Call them losers: 60.2 percent
Call them monsters: 10.1 percent
Call them something else: 29.6 percent
Of those that voted to call Islamist terrorists something else, here are some of the suggestions we received: murderers, jihadi terrorists, Islamist killers, brainwashed psychotics, vermin, evil savages and mindless fanatics.

Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen, the Maldives and the Eastern government of Libya all just severed diplomatic relations with Qatar. Saudi Arabia sealed all land, sea and air borders with the country. All countries said they would halt all air and sea traffic to Qatar.
Qatari diplomats have just 48 hours to get out.
The six countries cited Qatar’s ties to terrorism, in particular to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood is a global Islamist movement originally founded in Egypt that seeks to implement sharia as state law.
Join our campaign to ban the Muslim Brotherhood. Write to your elected representative and tell them why they demand the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization.  
UAE state media outlet WAM accused Qatar of “supporting, funding and embracing terrorism, extremism and sectarian organisations.” Bahrain accused Qatar of “shaking the security and stability of Bahrain and meddling in its affairs.”
Qatar has pulled its forces from the Saudi-led coalition against the Houthi rebels in Yemen.

One of the three jihadi terrorists responsible for the London attacks Saturday night was actively targeting children – easy prey, whom he hoped to radicalize.
In fact, a neighbor of the terrorist, Erica Gasparri, an Italian mother with three children, reported him to the police two years ago after realizing he was “brainwashing” her children.

“He was trying to radicalize the children, he would go down to the park and talk to them about Islam. He also came to the houses and gave the kids money and sweets during Ramadan,” Gasparri said, speaking to The Telegraph.

Gasparri confronted him after one of her children came home from a local park saying, “Mummy, I want to become a Muslim” after encounters with him.
Children are increasingly becoming targets for radicals. Their tactics range from threats, force and intimidation to more subtle methods of brainwashing through the media and school systems.

Smash Extremist Networks to Fight ‘Islamophobia’

The views expressed herein are the author’s own and do not necessarily reflect the views of Clarion Project.

Many people in the UK sound unhappy with the current government for their failure to protect the citizens from terror. Meanwhile Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is talking about “the connection between wars the Government has supported or fought in other countries and terrorism here at home.”
The remarks are a disappointment coming from the chief of one of the two great parties in the UK. It is not rocket science to understand that simply changing foreign policy won’t convince terrorists to give up their massacres inside the country. Extremists have developed roots across the West in past few decades aiming to overcome Europe by hook or by crook.
Since the terrorists slaughtering innocent citizens on public places mostly belong to Muslim backgrounds, the British Muslim community’s reticence to help the government establish a solid anti-terror policy is creating doubt among the public about the role of Muslims generally in the situation.
These events are interconnected and have a profound impact on the ongoing law and order situation in the country. It isn’t feasible to ignore the homegrown terror threat. The price of such negligence could be giving up social freedoms and living under the constant grip of terror.
The tension is already in the air as emotions are running high. Muslims themselves are showing signs of insecurity over the rising vigilantism such as arson attack on the Jamia Qasmia Islamic Centre in Oldham Manchester.
There are risks of more communal tensions or rather violence in current circumstances. Yet apologists for extremists and esteemed leaders like Mr. Corbyn are trying to look beyond the wall for the solutions instead of helping the authorities establish a functional anti-terror drive.
The campaign against terrorists to date has failed to deter their confidence or dent their networks inside the UK. On the contrary,  we see the level of threat increased to an unprecedented level.
Briefly raising the security level to “Critical,” the British security services finally seem pro-active in hunting the network of Salman Abedi. They have reportedly made a number of arrests and there is some breakthrough in the investigation over Manchester bombing. This is instead of brushing the issue under the carpet by terming Abedi a “lone wolf,” as we saw in the case of Khalid Masood, the perpetrator of the recent car ramming in London.
However, it is also true that despite having prior information about Abedi’s radicalization, no one paid heed to the warnings by his friends, and he went on to slay more than two dozen citizens in Manchester.
This failure to act has been mirrored in other cases.
Berlin terror culprit Anis Amri was known to local criminal police as a drug dealer, which is a bookable offense but the officers chose not to arrest him. Hence he was allowed to plot the worst terror attack in Germany’s recent history.
Moreover, the scale of such networks is still underestimated by the authorities.

5 Lessons From the Manchester Bombing
Clarion's Ryan Mauro takes an in-depth look at the takeaways for the U.S. and the West in this special report.Learn
BY RYAN MAURO Tuesday, May 30, 2017 
Suspects continue to be arrested following the suicide bombing at the Manchester Arena, with 13 people arrested in the U.K. and Libya at the time of this writing. One person detonated the explosive but the attack was the product of a global Islamist insurgency—and insurgencies can be defeated if we learn from their operations.

Here are 5 lessons from the bombing and follow-up investigation, in no particular order:
Manchester is a hub in the Islamist insurgency network. Items left in memorial for the victims of the Manchester attack.

It was a single bomb set off by a single jihadist, but he belonged to a hub in the Islamist insurgency. Apparently, independent Islamists often exist in geographic clusters that are linked together through a multilayered infrastructure. South Manchester is one such cluster.
Earlier this year, The Guardian found that 16 convicted or killed terrorists lived within a 2.5-mile space in southern Manchester. That was before the bombing and the subsequent arrests in the area.
Salman Abedi is believed to have links to ISIS recruiter Raphael Hostey, who was killed in Syria. Hostey acted as a “central node” in the Manchester jihadist network; a person whom others gravitate to and are somewhat directed by.
In 2000, Abedi also lived on the same street as Abd al-Basset Azzouz, a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), explosives expert for al-Qaeda, and al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri’s leader of Libyan operations. After they separated from the same street in 2000, the two were never more than a mile apart in Manchester.

Michigan Doctor Accused of Performing FGM to Claim Freedom of Religion Defense
Home > Human Rights > Human Rights Violators > Child Abuse > Michigan Doctor Accused of Performing FGM to Claim Freedom of Religion Defense
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Monday, May 29, 2017 
Lawyers for Jumana Nagarwala, the Michigan emergency-room doctor accused of performing genital mutilation on young girls, plan to invoke a defense based on freedom of religion, the Detroit Free Press reported.
While the law, enacted in 1996, is clear that cutting a girl’s genitals is illegal, the defense will claim the girls in question were not actually cut, but rather scraped for religious reasons. Thus, they will propose that not only was no harm was done, but the defendants themselves are victims of religious persecution by the U.S. government.
The case involves two seven-year-old girls from Minnesota who were brought to Nagarwala’s clinic in Livonia, Michigan for the procedure.  Also charged in the case are Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, 53, who is accused of letting Nagarwala use his clinic to carry out the cuttings and Farida Attar, 50, Fakhruddin’s wife, who is accused of holding the hands of at least two victims during the cutting procedures to comfort them.
According to court documents, a medical examination showed the girls had scarring and other abnormalities on their clitorises and labia minora that would indicate actual cutting took place. In addition, the government says there are many other young victims of FGM performed by Nagarwala who were told to remain silent or lie about the procedure to authorities, itself a crime.
Even if the procedure involved “just” scraping, “There are experts who contend that even the most mild procedure is still harmful,” said Brad Dacus, an attorney and expert on First Amendment rights and president of the Pacific Justice Institute, as quoted in the Detroit Free Press.
FGM includes all procedures involving partial or complete removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons

EXCLUSIVE: Kurdish General Responds to Building Iranian Proxy Threat

BY ZACH HUFF Monday, May 29, 2017

In the push towards the ISIS stronghold of Mosul, the successes of the Iraqi Army and Kurdish Peshmerga dominate the headlines. Yet, there’s another key, but underreported, participant: the Iranian-backed Shiite militants, which include the Iraqi Hezbollah and Hashed al-Shaabi.
Even less is heard about their expansionist aspirations. Iran and its terror proxies dream of establishing a land route from Tehran to the Mediterranean and Israel’s borders.
With progress on both ends, only the centrally-situated Ninevah and Sinjar areas near Mosul remain just out of their grasp. Their rapid headway has only been possible through the pretext of defeating ISIS — and America’s tacit willingness to accept the participation of groups to defeat ISIS.
Major General Aziz Weysi Bani, commander of the 56,000-strong Kurdish Zerevani Peshmerga, is at the forefront of this divide. Speaking exclusively to the Clarion Project, General Aziz offers his take on the current situation — a rare critique from a leading Kurdish figure, when officials are hesitant to provoke their counterparts.

The French burkini battle that began in Cannes in the summer of 2016 flared up again in the Riviera resort on Friday, May 26,2017 on the closing weekend of the film festival.
Franco-Algerian millionaire businessman and political activist Rachid Nekkaz, who in 2016 had offered to pay the $45 fines imposed on women who flouted the burkini ban imposed by four French mayors, announced on his website on April 24 that he was organizing a demonstration on the beach at Cannes on Friday, May 26 “to celebrate the decision of the Council of State of 26 August 2016 to authorize women to wear burkinis.”

Teddy Bears and Hashtags — the Best We can Do About Islamist Terror?

Teddy bears, tears, candles, cartoons, murals, mosaics, flowers, flags, projections, hashtags, balloons, wreaths, lights, vigils, scarves, and more. These are the best solutions the Western world seems to come up with every few months when we are slammed by another Islamist terrorist attack. We are our own sickness.
If the words above look familiar, it is because they are. They are the same words I wrote on March 23rd, 2016, just over one year ago, after coordinated suicide bombing attacks in the NATO/European Union capital of Brussels, Belgium, which left 32 dead and 340 injured.
On May 22, another 22 people died, and at least another 60 have been injured at a former Disney star’s concert in Manchester, England.
The targeting of an audience predominantly comprised of young girls should haunt even the most callous of cynics, and the most relativist of liberals. But it won’t.
Already we have witnessed large news sites demanding Britain refuse to change its approach to terrorism and extremism. Just keep sucking it up. Keep watching your friends and family die. After all, according to London’s mayor, terrorism is “part and parcel” of everyday urban life, right?
All of it, ultimately, is a distraction. I don’t know if it’s meant to be or not. But it is a massive distraction from the facts of this case. And the reality of European life today.
Let’s take 2017 alone so far. May 22nd marked the 142nd day of 2017. Until this date, in 2017, there were at least 15 attempted terrorist attacks on European, British, or West Russian soil, killing dozens, and injuring hundreds. That’s one attack attempted every 9 days in Europe.

Manchester Bombing: Who’s to Blame?

Unpacking the story behind the Manchester attack reveals a lot about the complexities of tackling extremism. It is important to remember that our security services work day and night to protect us from such atrocities, but that unfortunately, they cannot stop everyone.

A total of 18 plots have been foiled by MI5 since 2013, according to a source from MI5. Of these, five were foiled in the last two months alone. The source said MI5 have 500 active investigations, involving some 3,000 subjects of interest at any given time.
“Knowing of someone’s radical sympathies and knowing they present a real and present danger are very different things,” a former senior security figure pointed out.
“So the essence of the security dilemma is triage — how to assess who and when to investigate very deeply given the resources needed for 24/7 surveillance. For every suspect that appears to be high priority, another has to be pushed down the list. So who not to investigate urgently is as important a decision as who might be worth investigating.”
There are, however, still questions that can be asked and lessons learned about the lead up to the Manchester attack and what went wrong.
Police have now arrested 11 suspects as part of the investigation into the terrorist bombing that was carried out by Salmon Abedi. “This is a network we are investigating,” Ian Hopkins, chief constable of Greater Manchester Police said.
Authorities knew that the Abedi’s father, who was detained on May 24 in Libya by a local militia the Special Deterrence Forces, had connections to Libyan Islamist militants. Abedi’s two brothers have also been arrested.
“Having internet, I saw the attack in Manchester and I knew that’s my brother” Abedi’s younger brother Hashim reportedly told Libyan authorities after his arrest. “I have ideology with my brother, I know everything about my brother, what he was doing there in Manchester.”

Two Killed In Portland Stabbing
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Sunday, May 28, 2017

Two men were killed and a third man wounded in a stabbing attack in Portland, Oregon on Friday. Jeremy Joseph Christian reportedly began yelling what “would best be characterized as hate speech toward a variety of ethnicities and religions” at two women, one of whom was wearing a hijab, on the Metropolitan Area Express (MAX) light-rail train.

Three men intervened to protect the women and Christian stabbed them. Ricky John Best, 53 and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche, 23, died. Micah David-Cole Fletcher, 21, is in hospital with serious but non-life threatening wounds.

Christian attended the “March for Free Speech” on April 29 in Portland, to which he brought a baseball bat, which was confiscated by the police. Video footage shows him at the event wrapped in an American flag giving Nazi salutes.

His Facebook page reveals a string of hateful posts, including praise for the Oklahama City bomber, saying “May all the Gods Bless Timothy McVeigh A TRUE PATRIOT!!!”

He also posted “Hail Vinland!!! Hail Victory!!!” referencing white supremacist leader Richard Spencer and “Vinland,” the area of north eastern America supposedly settled by Viking explorer Leif Erikson. On the far-right, the concept of Vinland frames America as a white Viking country, according to anti-fascist researcher Shane Burley.

Christian has been arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated murder and one count of attempted murder. If convicted, he faces the death penalty.

23,000 Potential Jihadis in Britain: MI5
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Sunday, May 28, 2017

In an unusual announcement, Britain’s MI5 (secret service) revealed:

23,000 potential jihadis are currently living in Britain
3,000 potential terrorists are being investigated as “subjects of interest”
500 terror investigations are currently active
Speaking to the media, a security source said, “It is difficult because becoming aware that someone is an extremist sympathizer does not make them a live and present danger.

“It is a balancing act – is the intelligence sufficient to push them up the list of priorities or should the focus be on someone else given the finite resources available?”

Sources also said the fact that Britain’s security agency publicized these numbers indicates that the agency wants the public to be aware of how difficult it is to investigate potential terror threats.

As the threat level was increased from “severe” to “critical” following the Manchester attack, security in the UK was increased, with the following measures implemented:

Armed police will patrol train in Britain.
Armed soldiers are now guarding the House of Parliament and the prime minister’s house.
Security is also guarding the Great Manchester Run, the Football Association cup final and the premiership rugby final.
The National Health Service (NHS) instructed 27 major trauma centers to be prepared in case of another attack.
Following the arrests of 11 suspects in connection with the Manchester bombing, the government reduced the threat level from “severe” back to “critical.” The deployment of soldiers under ‘Operation Temperer’ will continue until midnight on Monday to cover extra security for the national holiday weekend. After that, “a well-planned and gradual withdrawal of members of the armed forces” will take place.

Coptic Christians Slaughtered in Egypt

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi sent fighter planes to Libya retaliate against an attack in Egypt on a caravan of Coptic Christians.

On the eve of the Islamic month of Ramadan, masked gunmen targeted a bus and other vehicles of Copts travelling to a monastery in central Egypt, killing 28 people including a number of children.

Gruesome footage of the attack emerged as heavily armed Egyptian special forces guarded officials gathering evidence amidst the vehicles riddled with bullet holes and covered in blood.

In response El-Sisi sent fighter planes to hit bases in Libya, which he said was where the Islamists who carried out the attack trained. Sources in Libya reported that the planes bombed the headquarters of the shura (advisory) council in Darna, where Islamists are identified with Al Qaeda.

Reuters reported that Muslim leaders in Egypt condemned the attack, with the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, the center of Sunni Islam, saying that the attack was meant to destabilize the country.

“I call on Egyptians to unite in the face of this brutal terrorism,” Ahmed al-Tayeb said from Germany, where he was visiting.

U.S. President Donald Trump said in a statement issued from Italy where he was attending a G7 summit, “The bloodletting of Christians must end, and all who aid their killers must be punished.  Terrorists are engaged in a war against civilization, and it is up to all who value life to confront and defeat this evil.”

The Coptic community has been the target of a stepped-up campaign against Christians by Islamists in Egypt. Since December, 70 members of the community were killed in church bombings by Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) in Cairo, Alexandria and Tanta.

Hundreds of Copts in the northern Sinai have fled after of a campaign of murders claimed the lives of many community members.

During the reign of former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi (who was affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood), churches and Christians were routinely attacked.

Jihadis in Philippines Mount Christian Killing Spree

Islamic State-affiliated fighters in the Philippines tied up and executed nine Christian at a checkpoint in the southern Philippines city of Marawi on Wednesday. The jihadis reportedly forced the Christian, who were fleeing the city, off their truck and identified them as Christians before murdering them.

The militants reportedly tied their hands together and shot them in the head. They left the bodies lying in the grass.

The terrorists killed 19 civilians during street fighting to take Marawi, including three women and a child whose bodies were found near a hospital.

Government officials say this brings the total death toll since the militants began their uprising on Tuesday to at least 85.

“These are civilians, women. These terrorists are anti-people. We found their bodies while conducting rescue operations [on Saturday],” spokesperson for the army Lieutenant Colonel Jo-ar Herrera told media.

The militants began an uprising in Marawi City on Tuesday after a botched raid by the army to kill Isnilon Hapilon, the leader of Abu Sayyaf (one of the terrorist groups involved in the insurgency).

The Philippines has deployed at least 100 US-trained special forces in the operation to retake the city. Armored tanks, helicopters, artillery and air strikes have been used in support.

Philippines President Rodrigo Duturte declared martial law on the southern island of Mindanao, where Marawi is located. Rebel groups there have long sought autonomy and fighting has been on-going for decades.

Duturte has promised to crush the incipient rebellion, brutally if necessary, and has pledged to extent martial law to the entire country if he deems it necessary.

In a speech explaining the new policy on Friday, he told his soldiers, “You can arrest any person, search any house.”

His comments have alarmed many who are concerned about possible abuses.

“I alone will be responsible,” Duturte responded. “I will go to jail for you. If you happen to have raped three women, I will own up to it.”

The rape comment was reported as a joke, but it worried women’s rights activists.

CLARION Troops on the Streets as UK Ups Threat Level to Critical
Home > World > UK > Troops on the Streets as UK Ups Threat Level to Critical
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Wednesday, May 24, 2017

The UK has upgraded the country’s threat level to “critical,” the highest threat level, following the May 22 terror attack which killed 22 people at a concert in Manchester. The designation, decided upon by the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre, means the government believes another attack may be imminent.

Law-enforcement officers are investigating whether Monday’s suicide bomber acted alone and they are pursuing leads to find and arrest anyone who may have been involved or who may be planning a fresh terrorist attack.

The bomber, Salman Abedi, 22, of Libyan descent, is feared to be part of a broader network connected to Islamic State. Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

British Prime Minister Theresa May ordered soldiers deployed to the streets as a means of boosting security for key sites. The soldiers are part of  “Operation Temperer,” a government plan which has been in place since 2015 but which has so far never been used.

Up to 5,000 soldiers will be deployed around the country, guarding sites including Buckingham palace, embassies and parliament.
“This means that armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces, which will allow the police to significantly increase the number of armed officers on patrol in key locations,” Theresa May told journalists in explaining the decision.
“You might also see military personnel deployed at certain events, such as concerts and sports matches, helping the police to keep the public safe.  In all circumstances, members of the armed forces who are deployed in this way will be under the command of police officers. Precisely how the military and armed police officers will be deployed is an operational decision for police commanders.”
On May 23 a man with an axe was arrested at a vigil in Birmingham for the victims of the terrorist attack.
In an unrelated incident, a 37-year-old man was arrested attempting to board a flight to Turkey from Stansted Airport near London. He is being held on suspicion of attempting to travel to Syria and join the Islamic State.

Navy SEALS Kill 7 Al-Qaeda Operatives in Yemen
The operation was the deepest U.S. special forces have gone into Yemeni territory.
In a raid deep in Yemen, U.S. special forces killed seven al-Qaeda terrorists, reported CNN.
The raid by Navy SEALS on a compound operated by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) was meant to “disrupt” the terror organization’s operations in what was known to be its headquarters and safe haven.
Pentagon spokesperson U.S. Navy Captain Jeff Davis said the terrorists were “likely not expecting us” since the raid took place deep in Yemeni territory – the “deepest we’ve ever gone into Yemen to fight AQAP,” he remarked.
Two members of the U.S. team were lightly wounded but safely evacuated from the scene.
The operation took place in the midst of a firefight in which an AC-130 gunship provided support from the air.
The operation was backed by the government of Yemen, according to U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM).
“Raids such as this provide insight into AQAP’s disposition, capabilities and intentions, which will allow us to continue to pursue, disrupt, and degrade AQAP,” stated a CENTCOM news release.
Raids against AQAP were stepped up recently because of concerns that AQAP plans to target Western interests in the country

A former white supremacist in Florida murdered his two white supremacist roommates after they objected his conversion to Islam.
Devon Arthurs, 18, reportedly murdered roommates Jeremy Himmelman, 22, and Andrew Oneschuk, 18, after the two criticized his conversion to Islam, according to Raw Story.
The three men were reportedly all white supremacists prior to Arthurs’ conversion. Police said he carried out the murders “to bring attention to his cause.”
After murdering his roommates, Arthurs took three hostages at a nearby smoke shop in Tampa Palms, Florida. Police arrived on the scene and convinced him to release the hostages and turn himself in.
“I had to do it,” he told police. “This wouldn’t have had to happen if your country didn’t bomb my country.”
When police searched the apartment, they found a garage full of explosives and a framed photo of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. This led to explosives charges being leveled against the fourth roommate, National Guardsman Brandon Russell, 21.
The decision to become a white supremacist and then an Islamic extremist seems to indicate a troubled mind.

Iran is Now Pro-American? Ask the BBC
Home > World > Iran > Iran is Now Pro-American? Ask the BBC
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Tuesday, May 23, 2017 
In an interesting exchange on Morning Joe, BBC World News anchor Katty Kay objected to U.S. President Donald Trump’s Middle East trip on the grounds that “you’re alienating a nation which is potentially a fairly pro-Western, pro-American nation…”
Kay objected to Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia, Iran’s nemesis, where he met with the Saudi monarch as well as other leaders of the Sunni Muslim world who had gathered in Riyadh for a summit. Presumably, she also objected to his next stop, Israel.
In their speeches to the summit, both Trump and King Salman made it clear that their disputes with Iran were not with the Iranian people but rather with the regime for enabling, fomenting and sponsoring terrorism across the globe.
The Iranian chant of “Death to America” has been the rallying cry of the mullahs for decades, as has been their incessant antagonism toward America. Kay seems to be taken with the European fantasy version of Iranian outreach to the West – which, we can all admit, stems solely from the lucrative business deals promising  a massive influx of funds into both the European and Iranian economies (which, ironically, can then be pumped back into terror).
Watch the exchange:
Now watch the real sentiments held by the Iranian regime about America:

The U.S. hit foreign fighters affiliated with the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on May 19. U.S. jets pounded a convoy of pro-regime militia fighters headed to An-Tanf, an area in the south of Syria controlled by U.S.-backed forces.
Although U.S. troops fired Tomahawk missiles on a regime air base in April, this is the first time the U.S. targeted foreign militias fighting for the regime.
“It was necessitated … by offensive movement with offensive capability of what we believe were Iranian-directed – I don’t know there were Iranians on the ground – but by Iranian-directed forces,” US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in a statement.
American and British special forces are training Syrian rebel forces to fight ISIS at the An Tanf base. The base is also strategically important because it is on the Iraqi border. Seizure of the Iraqi border by Iranian backed pro-regime militias could lead to the easy shipment of Iranian weapons from Baghdad to supply the Syrian regime.
Iranian-backed militias are reportedly keen to hold this area, for the same reason that America wants to hold it.
Russia reportedly attempted to dissuade the convoy America attacked from approaching the An-Tanf base.

On May 19, 2017, two Parisian neighborhood associations — SOS La Chapelle and Tomorrow La Chapelle — posted a petition online titled Women, an Endangered Species in the Heart of Paris. 
The petition, addressed to the president, prime minister, minister for justice, minister for the interior, attorney-general, mayor and police commissioner of Paris is a plea for help from the residents of the La Chapelle district in the north-east of the city. It draws attention to the fact that over the past year, the area adjacent to La Chapelle subway station has turned into a dangerous no-go zone for women and girls.
This period, since 2015, corresponds to the arrival of a wave of Muslim migrants from Somalia, Afghanistan, Eritrea, Sudan and other war-torn countries. After years of tolerating the erection of mini shanty-towns and campsites along the subway line, railway tracks and parks in the neighborhood, Socialist Mayor Anne Hidalgo commissioned the construction of a vast reception and accommodation center at the Porte de la Chapelle with a capacity of 400.

Current Iranian President Hassan Rouhani won a resounding victory in his bid for reelection. With unprecedented voter turnout (twice as many residents of Tehran alone come out to vote versus the last election), Rouhani steered through a field of the six candidate to win a clear majority of 57 percent, negating the possibility of a run-off election.
His closest rival, hardliner Ibrahim Raisi received only 38.5% of the vote.
Rouhani was billed as a “moderate,” who, compared to Raisi – who sat on the death squads that massacred tens of thousands of dissidents in the 1980s – and he very well may be. Yet, all is relative in Iran.
Rouhani campaigned on a platform against Iran’s clerical hardliners whom he billed as “those who cut out tongues and sewed mouths shut.” Yet, as documented by eminent human rights lawyer Irwin Colter, his first term in office saw:

U.S President Donald Trump is slated to speak to the leaders of 50 Muslim countries during his trip to Saudi Arabia on May 21. Details of the speech have not yet been released.
Here’s what we’d like Trump to say:
Stop With the Radical Ideology
It’s the politicized version of Islam that wants to implement religious law as state law. It’s the ideology that wants to bring back the Islamic Caliphate, a theocratic monarchy which hasn’t been around since 1924. It’s regressive. It’s trying to revive a system of government that has no place in the modern world. It’s trying to impose an understanding of faith over others and killing people who disagree, even though it says “there shall be no compulsion in religion” in the Quran.
Wipe out ISIS. Round up all the terrorists and arrest them. End the support for the people who believe the same things the terrorists believe, but just want to get there non-violently.
This isn’t about Islam. We don’t care about halal meat or if Muslims want to pray or read the Quran. We’re all about religious freedom. We love it so much it’s the very first amendment in the United States constitution. Believe whatever you want. But you have got to put a stop to this totalitarian, supremacist ideology. Stop funding it, stop promoting it in madrasas and mosques, stop saying that it’s not appropriate yet but one day you’ll get there.
Just stop it. People are dying every day because of this ideology.
Leave Women Alone
I’m looking at you Saudi Arabia. Stop forcing women to wear floor-length black burqas. Stop denying women the right to drive. Stop mandating that they can’t go anywhere without their male guardian or an approved chaperone. Let women work if they want to.
But it’s not just Saudi Arabia

The attackers broke a police line and violently charged the group. A number of minority organizations who represent those that have borne the brunt of the Turkish state’s oppressive policies protested Erdogan’s presence in Washington. The groups included Kurds, Armenians, Greeks and Yazidis.

Victims of the attack stated their attackers were not ordinary civilians, but people with military training, “likely from Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s security detail.”

The time has come to ban the Muslim Brotherhood. Join our campaign now.

A former ISIS fighter confirmed the links between the brutal terror group Islamic State and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  Ali Kamal, young man from Egypt, joined ISIS in Libya. He spent two years with the group between 2012 and 2013 before escaping and fleeing back to his native country.
In an extensive interview on an Egyptian satellite TV channel, Kamal spoke about his experiences with ISIS.
He related that Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) sent $100,000 to Egypt to lure new recruits to fight for the terror group. Once recruited, they would be shipped off to Syria through Turkey to fight for ISIS there. The money was sent through private individuals (who often delivered it with their own cars) as well as money changers that belonged to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Kamal noted the close relationship between ISIS jihadis and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. For example, when word got out that the Egyptian authorities wanted to arrest prominent Muslim Brotherhood preacher and political agent Safwat Hegazi, ISIS fighters tried to help Hegazi escape Egypt.
Hegazi was eventually tracked down, identified (despite being disguised) and arrested on the Egyptian-Libyan border.
Sheikh Salam, the “emir” of ISIS’ Abusalim Battalion that controlled the eastern Libyan port city of Darna, was personally waiting for Hegazi on the Libyan side of the border.
Kamal added that Hegazi was responsible for transferring weapons from Libya to the jihadis in Syria.
The time has come to ban the Muslim Brotherhood. Join our campaign now.

The head of the Shiite religious institutions in Iraq told Christians to convert or die. Sheikh Alaa al-Moussawi, who is in charge of the Shiite Waqf (the body that oversees and maintains all Shia holy sites, mosques and other places of prayer and schools), called Christians “infidels and polytheists” and said “jihad” must be carried out against them.
Responding to incendiary remarks, 180 Iraqi Christians filed a lawsuit against the sheikh for “instigating incitement against Christians and disturbing the religious plurality of Iraq,” according to an Iraqi judicial source sited by The New Arab website.
In response, Al-Moussawi sent a delegation from the Waqf to the Babylonian Christian Movement to mediate the lawsuit which also accuses him of using ISIS rhetoric against the Christians.

Loophole in Law Incentive for Honor Killing
Home > World > Palestinian Authority > Loophole in Law Incentive for Honor Killing
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Thursday, May 18, 2017 
 Honor violence loophole in Palestinian penal code.
(Illustrative photo: Wikimedia Commons)
Palestinian women’s rights groups have started an initiative calling on Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas to cancel a loophole in the law that allows honor killers to get off with reduced sentences reported The Times of Israel.
The PA operates largely under the Jordanian penal code. In this case, Article 99 of the code gives a judge the power to dramatically reduce sentences for crimes committing under “extenuating circumstances.”
The loophole is traditionally used for crimes of murder, assault and rape against women.
For example, if a woman is murdered by her family, then the family (who are the “defendants” in the case) can drop the charges. The judge can then declare the “lack of charges” against the killer “extenuating circumstances” and significantly reduce the sentence.
To date, Palestinian women’s groups have garnered 12,000 signatures on a petition asking Abbas to cancel the provision.
Yet, the prospect of that happening doesn’t seem likely, according to a legal a legal adviser for the Palestinian Authority’s Women’s Affairs Ministry, who contends the law is necessary to mete out justice in some cases, reported The Times of Israel.
The adviser contended the change must come at the judicial level – namely that judges must stop using the provision when dealing with honor killers.

Muslim Brotherhood lobbyist flash the Rabia sign in front of the US Capitol.
Mahmoud El-Sharkawy (third from left), Hani Elkadi (second from right), Ayat Oraby (far right), and other members of the EAFAJ delegation flash the four-finger “rabia” Muslim Brotherhood sign in front of the US Capitol building lobbying.
For Freedom And Justice (EAFAJ) made the rounds on Capitol Hill May 4 to urge U.S. lawmakers not to support designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.
The visit, which came hours after the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Hasm terrorist organization claimed responsibly for a deadly attack on a security convoy in Cairo, wasn’t the first time radical Islamists have masqueraded as human rights activists when seeking to sway American minds and won’t be the last.
Although EAFAJ makes an effort to talk the talk of democracy and freedom, its unabashed support for armed jihadis wreaking havoc in Egypt is hard to miss. At a November 2016 EAFAJ event, radical imam Mohamed Elbar declared that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi “ought to be beheaded.”
The EAFAJ delegation included several known New Jersey-based Islamic extremists. EAFAJ chairman Hani ElKadi, for example, helped promote a February 2015 communiqué by the the Popular Resistance Movement (PRM), which has carried out numerous terrorist attacks and police killings in Egypt.
EAFAJ board member and spokesman Mahmoud El-Sharkawy, who reportedly serves as the group’s liaison with Brotherhood members exiled in Turkey, praised the terrorist Revolutionary Punishment Movement (RPM) for executing a police informant in Egypt. Aber Mostafa once posted personal information about a soccer team owner sympathetic to President Sisi with the word “Attaaack!”
But the belle of the ball was New York-based activist Ayat Oraby, a favorite of the Brotherhood’s broadcast media outlets.

Faithkeepers Producer Paula Kweskin: Exclusive Interview
Faithkeepers premiers May 23
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Thursday, May 18, 2017 
We spoke with the Producer of Faithkeepers Paula Kweskin to ask her why she’s so excited about her latest movie, which premieres on May 23. It brings much needed attention to the horrific persecution faced by Christians and other minorities in the Middle East.
Clarion Project: What is the goal of Faithkeepers
Paula Kweskin: We would like to awaken the Christian community and all people of conscience to understand and be empowered to take action on behalf of Christians and other minorities in the Middle East who are experiencing genocide. We feel there is a real lack of information and this is first and foremost a film to educate people and wake them up about this humanitarian crisis.
What efforts is the U.S. government doing to protect Christians in the Middle East and is it enough?
Congress has taken a number of steps to protect Christians and other minorities in the Middle East. House Concurrent Resolution 75, which passed the House of Representatives in March 2016, correctly states “the atrocities perpetrated by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) against Christians, Yezidis, and other religious and ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria constitute war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.” The bill is currently awaiting passage through the Senate but if passed it will push the U.N. and other international bodies, working with U.S. leadership, to establish war crimes tribunals for ISIS leaders and take other more robust steps to tackle ISIS. There are other proposed bills, including one which would expedite the asylum process for Christians and other minorities fleeing ISIS persecution.
In addition, President Trump has increased the number of soldiers deployed to Iraq and Syria to fight ISIS and earlier this year he gave Defense Secretary Mattis the authority to set troop levels in Iraq and Syria. This means the U.S. military has the freedom to commit the forces it needs to eliminate ISIS, working with local partners on the ground.
What action can people take?

BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Washington May 16 to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump. Here’s how Clarion Project thinks the conversation went:
Trump: Tayyip Recep Erdogan! Mind if I call you Tay? It’s just easier.

Erdogan: Um, no…sure, Tay’s fine I guess. Hey this White House is kinda small. The new palace I built back home is much bigger! It’s even bigger than Mar-a-Lago.

Trump: Yeah right. But, I have the biggest everything. Let’s get down to business. NATO. You’re supposed to be on our side and we’re paying you a lot of money for that. No more of this purchasing ISIS oil under the table. I want to see you take the fight to the enemy. Smash ISIS.

Erodgan: Oh, we’re doing that. Making excellent progress, if I do say so. We’re thinking about staying for a while in Syria actually. Gonna set up a couple of bases over there.

Trump: Tay…

Erdogan: Just to help arm and train local forces! Nothing dodgy!

Trump: Nothing to do with obliterating the Kurds?

Erdogan: No, no, no. Absolutely not. No way! But while we’re talking about it, I want you to tell the Kurds to back off – Turkey belongs to the Turks.

Trump: I think you’ve made that very clear Tay. By the way, why were you ranting about the Temple Mount the other day?

Erdogan: The Temple Mount? I think you mean Al-Aqsa.

Trump: Whatever. Jared always calls it the Temple Mount. You’re calling for riots now? You knew I was going there to make a deal! What gives?

Erdogan: I didn’t call for riots. I called for the Muslim world to assemble at Al-Aqsa and show those filthy Je-sorry-Zionists that we will never relinquish our historic holy sites! We will never …

Trump: Calm down, Tay. Just calm down. I’m going there next week, and I’m going to make a deal. I’m going to make a deal. You’ll be happy, the Israelis will be happy, the Palestinians will be happy. It’ll be the best deal you’ve ever seen, believe me.

Erdogan: OK, but can I still be caliph of the Muslim world?

Trump: Caliph, Shmaliph, be whatever you wanna call it, but you know, Tay, you gotta earn it. Nobody likes a guy who gets there by throwing his enemies in jail. Just not manly. Now, about the journalists …

Tay: They’re all traitors! They deserved it! And you’re harboring the worst one of them all….

Trump: Get it through your head, Tay, we’re not giving up Gulen. Forget about it. Next subject.  What’s all this I hear about you getting chummy with the Chinese? What were you doing at the “One Belt, One Road” summit this weekend?

Erdogan: Just a friendly chat about China making some investments in Turkey.

Trump: Let someone else foot the bill. Am I right?

Erdogan: Doesn’t hurt. Just like NATO, ha, ha. I mean, sure, we’re going to be pulling our weight.

Trump: Make sure you do that. I’m going to be watching you, Tay.  

EXCLUSIVE Interview with Yazidi Leader: West to Blame for Our Genocide

BY RACHEL AVRAHAM Tuesday, May 16, 2017

In an exclusive interview, Yazidi leader Mirza Ismail discusses how the West has abandoned his people, who are on the verge of annihilation.
Mirza Ismail, a Yazidi leader and chairperson of the Yazidi Human Rights International, says that the West claims to champion human rights and the freedom of all peoples, but in reality they are not living up to these principles.
Ismail claims that the way the West has reacted to the Yazidi genocide proves this point. “The U.S., UK, France, Russia and China are the five permanent members of the UN Security Council. They claim responsibility for human rights and world affairs,” he notes. “They know that the Yazidi genocide took place in August 2014.
“They saw that they killed thousands of Yazidis and abducted 7,000 young women and girls, who were subjected to multiple rapes on a daily basis and were sold in a sex slave market, yet they did not take any action to save them. The UN and the U.S. claim responsibility for promoting human rights and freedom. If so, why does the West support the Muslim communities against the Yazidis?”
According to Ismail, the U.S. also knows that Saudi Arabia is supporting ISIS. Recent Arabic language
Mirza Ismail
media documentation of Russian reports exposed that Saudi Arabia paid a ransom so that ISIS terrorists will be able to escape Mosul to Afghanistan via the Erbil airport in Kurdistan.
According to the reports, the Kurds accepted the ransom in exchange for freeing some of their people. “Russian intelligence somehow found out the Saudi king and Turkish president met with [Iraqi Kurdish leader Masoud] Barzani and the three worked together to transfer ISIS terrorists from Iraq to Afghanistan,” he says.

What Iran Fears Most

BY SHAHRIAR KIA Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Iranians will be taking advantage of the May 19 presidential election to voice their apathy and respond to calls being made to boycott the so-called polls. They may also use the sham elections to spark an uprising against the regime.
The Iranian people have lost all hope in any form of real elections in Iran, knowing the theocratic regime vets all candidates based on their loyalty to the ruling establishment. This leaves no room for free and fair elections, and thus any expectation of changes inside Iran or in the regime’s foreign policy through elected officials is utterly naïve.
Even the past four years under the so-called “moderate” or “reformist” President Hassan Rouhani, Iran has executed over 3,000 people, enhanced its ballistic missiles program, openly backed the ruthless regime of Bashar Assad in Syria and further funded proxy wars in Iraq and Yemen. These regional crusades have deprived the Iranian people of dozens, if not hundreds, of billions of dollars.
Rouhani’s main rival, Ebrahim Raisi, is known for his major role in the regime’s judiciary that has executed tens of thousands of people in the past three decades, as well as his leading role in the 1988 massacre of more than 30,000 political prisoners (who mainly consisted of members and supporters of the Iranian opposition group the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran [PMOI/MEK]).
To this end, any outcome of Iran’s presidential race will fail to render any meaningful change in Iran’s domestic or foreign policies. Washington and Brussels have the chance to lead the effort in making Tehran understand its previous behavior will no longer be tolerated. Leveling more sanctions based on human rights violations and support for terrorism against any new government in Iran is a dire necessity, coupled with designating the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a foreign terrorist organization.

Muslim Brotherhood Insists Hamas Is Still Part of the Movement
Home > World > Gaza Strip > Muslim Brotherhood Insists Hamas Is Still Part of the Movement
BY DAVID HARRIS Thursday, May 11, 2017 
Despite Hamas’ apparent attempt to distance itself from its own terrorist past and its parent body, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Egyptian Brotherhood insists the two are still connected (Arabic link).
Hamas is a designated terror organization according to the governments of the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, Egypt, Canada, Australia and Israel.

Join Clarion in calling on the Trump administration to ban the Brotherhood.

There are three key points at play here:

1. As we’ve reported, it’s hard to say the Muslim Brotherhood is directly involved in terrorism because it is a collection of disparate groups. What connects these groups is their end point: the desire for a global caliphate. That means an end to the U.S. and the West as we know them today. However, the Egyptian Brotherhood is the central organization in the Brotherhood network and the international mouthpiece of the organization.

2, The very fact that the Egyptian Brotherhood insists it is still tied at the hip to Hamas shows that the Brotherhood’s direct support for the Hamas terror organization is alive and well.
3. While Hamas is trying to paint itself as a moderate organization with a new charter, it continues to amass a large arsenal in the Gaza strip it controls, and its terror-tunnel building continues unabated. At least 15 tunnels dug by Hamas run under Israeli territory. Egypt has battled Hamas for years.

An item on the Arabic portal Al Bawaba News mocked Hamas’ alleged divorce from the Brotherhood, saying: “This emphasizes that the disengagement between Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood was just a play which has no basis.”

Hamas and the Brotherhood are inextricably entwined. That’s why we urge you to please join Clarion in calling on the Trump administration to ban the Brotherhood.

Former Brotherhood official Tarek el-Bashabishi told Al-Bawaba that the Egyptian Brotherhood is sending out warning shots, making sure everyone realizes it’s the Egyptian Brotherhood that runs the movement’s branches and any change in political tactics is done in accordance with headquarters.

El-Bashabishi called Hamas’ new “moderate” charter “a deception for everyone,” as senior Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar said, “The pledge Hamas made before God was to liberate all of Palestine. The charter is the core of (Hamas’s) position and the mechanism of this position is the document.”

Al-Zahar added Hamas views armed resistance as the method to achieve that goal and does not recognise Israel’s right to exist.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu released the following video lashing out at various mainstream media elements for reporting that the organization had moderated:

3 Things You Should Know About Indonesia’s Growing Radicalization

 1, Former governor of Jakarta, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, commonly known as Ahok, can pinpoint his loss to Anies Baswedan in this year’s gubernatorial election to a criminal trial in which he was found guilty of blasphemy against Islam.
Ahok, a Christian, was charged with blasphemy after he quoted a verse from the Quran to prove that, according to Islam, Muslims are allowed to vote for a non-Muslims.
2. The campaign against Ahok and his subsequent loss in the election are symptoms of the growing Islamization of Indonesia.The anti-Ahok campaign was supported by Islamist groups like Hizbut Tahrir — which aims to bring create a strict Sharia-based state — where adulterers are stoned and thieves have their hand amputated and the Salafists, a Saudi-based movement which strives for a return to the “purest” form of Islam (i.e., that which was practiced by Mohammed himself and the first generations of Muslims).
3.  The type of government these groups desire already exists in Indonesia’s Aceh province.  Sharia law was instituted in Aceh in 2001 and has grown increasingly strict.Today in Aceh, women are required by law to dress modestly, alcohol is largely banned, and adultery, homosexuality, various displays of “immodesty” between men and women as well as other crimes are punished by public caning. Non-Muslims and tourists are also subject to sharia punishments in Aceh.

It is a known fact throughout the region that the Islamic Republic of Iran founded the Lebanese Hezbollah as an offspring to expand its influence in the Middle East and gain a foothold on the shores of the Mediterranean.
U.S. National Security Advisor Lt. General H.R. McMaster recently accused Tehran of imposing the “Hezbollah model” to gain influence over various Middle East states, destabilizing the region through the process.
Such a blueprint includes targeting vulnerable governments across the region through a variety of plots while, at the same time, backing armed militia groups stationed in those countries. Hezbollah has already managed to consolidate its influence over the government of Lebanon after Michel Aoun, a Hezbollah ally, took control over the country’s presidency last year.

A young Hindu businessman was the center of the third major mob action against an accused blasphemer in Pakistan in less than a month.
Prakash Kumar, 34, from Lasbela in the Baluchistan province, was arrested by the police after allegedly sharing blasphemous content on the WhatsApp social-media platform.
After a mob descended on the police station where he was held, violence erupted when the police refused to hand him over – a fate which certainly would have seen him lynched to death by the crowd.
In the ensuing violence, a 13-year-old boy was killed and five others wounded (including police officers) in the riot which lasted three hours. Thousands of fundamentalists, who shouted against Kumar as well as the entire Hindu community, also succeeded in pressuring the government to close all businesses owned or controlled by the Hindu community.
Even after Kumar was sent to prison, the atmosphere in the area remained tense for three days after the incident, forcing the entire Hindu community to leave the area. For those who wish come back, they know it will be a long process before the dust is settled.

How the Muslim Brotherhood Persecutes Christians
Home > World > Egypt > How the Muslim Brotherhood Persecutes Christians
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Thursday, May 11, 2017 
Muslim Brotherhood leaders have long used hateful rhetoric stirring up enmity against Egypt’s minority Coptic population.
But this incitement spilled over into a widespread campaign of pogroms, and persecution following the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt Mohammed Morsi in a popularly-backed coup in 2013.
USA Today recorded that in just one week that year 40 churches were torched and looted, while an additional 23 were attacked.
The Daily Beast recorded that the Facebook page of the Freedom and Justice (Muslim Brotherhood) Party declared the Coptic church wages a “war against Islam and Muslims,” saying “After all this, people ask why they burn the churches. For every action there is a reaction.”

NY Public Schools Promote Course Justifying Suicide Bombings

BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Wednesday, May 10, 2017

A lesson plan developed in New York state and promoted by the New York State Education Department called “Dying to be a Martyr,” features video interviews with Islamic terrorists who explain why their attacks on Israelis are justified, according to an investigation by The Blaze.
For the last decade, the plan has been offered to teachers through the taxpayer-funded Public Broadcasting Service’s “LearningMedia” website. The PBS website offers “a media-on-demand service offering educators access to the best of public media and delivers research-based, classroom-ready digital learning experiences.”
The lesson plan is geared for high school-age students. As The Blaze reports, “There are no instructions in the lesson plan for teachers to denounce these views and no videos are featured showing the Israeli response.
“Among the other biased aspects of the lesson plan are instructions for teachers to ‘Check for understanding by asking students to respond to the focus question. (Mohanned, feels he would rather die and by a martyr than live his life, sees his life as hollow—in contrast he sees Israelis as happy, going out, having fun, traveling.) Ask your students why Mohanned may feel that way (Answers may include: Palestinians have less land, fewer privileges, cannot come and go as they please.)’”
A further investigation by the news outlet showed that until the expose on the lesson plan was published, it was being promoted by the New York State Education Department (NYSED). After a request was made for comment by state officials, NYSED’s website was changed and the lesson plan was dropped.
However, the plan was still listed on another NYSED website as well the promotion of a video titled “Story of Islam: A History of the World’s Most Misunderstood Faith.”
The Blaze reports that out of 40 items included on the website, “Dying to be a Martyr” was the only complete lesson plan listed.
The author of the plan is a long-standing public teacher in upstate New York. Requests for comments by The Blaze from the author as well as the NYSED were ignored.

Former UN Adviser Argues for FGM on ‘Tucker Carlson’ Show
She outrageously defended the barbaric practice as 'gender equality surgery.' Watch Video
A former United Nation’s adviser appeared on the Tucker Carlson Tonight show to argue in favor of female genital mutilation, calling the brutal procedure “female circumcision.” (See video below)

Deflecting Carlson’s continual question as to whether or not it is moral to force a life-altering surgery on a young girl who has no choice in the matter, Dr. Fuambai Ahmadu, kept comparing FGM to male circumcision. At one point, in reference to the barbaric procedure, she stated that in her country, Sierra Leone, it could be labeled “gender equality surgery.”

Commenting on the current FGM case ongoing in America where a Muslim doctor and her accomplices were arresting for performing FGM on young girls in Michigan, Ahmadu argued FGM was misunderstood.

Saying that people assume FGM involved removing the entire clitoris, Ahmadu said that would be impossible and cause death since it is a large organ. However, what she failed to mention was that removal of the exterior part of the clitoris is precisely what the surgery entails – as well as in many cases, removal of all the exterior genital organs of a girl.

Ahmadu was formerly the lead consultant at the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and former health specialist at the National Institute of Child Health. She voluntarily underwent FGM as an adult and is currently the editor-in-chief a women’s quarterly magazine “dedicated to empowering circumcised women and girls in Africa and worldwide,” according to her website.
Ahmadu is also co-founder of African Women Are Free to Choose (AWAFC), an organization that counters anti-Female Genital Mutilation campaigns.
FGM includes all procedures involving partial or complete removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. Short-term complications can include hemorrhaging, pain, shock, and even death, while long-term complications include formation of cysts, problems with sexual intercourse and giving birth, chronic pelvic infection and sterility.

A district court judge ruled the Syrian regime — and specifically its ruler, President Bashar al-Assad — are liable for the murders of three Americans by al-Qaeda because of the regime’s massive support for the terrorist group’s branch in Iraq.
In addition to those three Americans, tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers, Iraqis and others have been killed or injured due to Assad’s sponsorship of al-Qaeda and other jihadists.
The lawsuit was filed by the families of Laurence Michael Foley, a U.S. diplomat in Jordan assassinated by al-Qaeda in 2002; Staff Sgt. Keith Matthew Maupin, killed in Iraq in 2004 and Pvt. Kristian Menchacha, who was killed in Iraq in 2006.
The evidence blaming Assad for the death of Foley is particularly strong. Foley was assassinated by al-Qaeda terrorists operating under the leadership of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, then-leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq. While in his safe haven in Syria, Zarqawi met with the perpetrators to plan the attack and equip them with weaponry and money.
After killing Foley in Jordan, one of the perpetrators escaped back into Syria. Jordan demanded his extradition. Assad refused to comply and told the world that the terrorist was imprisoned. Then, an Arab newspaper discovered that he wasn’t in jail at all. He was running an al-Qaeda training camp in Syria.

NJ Convert Stabs Dog, Plans Suicide Bombing in Manhattan
He was tracked down after trying to butcher the family dog for being 'dirty.'
Authorities traced a recent convert to Islam to a plot to commit a suicide bombing in Manhattan.
Gregory Lepsky, 20, of Point Pleasant, New Jersey, was investigated by authorities after he tried to stab his family’s dog to death. Both Lepsky – who now goes by the name of Allah Abdel Rochman –and the dog were wounded. While paramedics treated him, he told them he was planning to kill his mother.

The dog was found alive after being stabbed with a 12- inch blade.
While in a hospital, Lepsky ranted during questioning he had pledged his allegiance to Allah and the intended to fight for the Islamic State.
The plan included killing his mother, killing the family dog (since he considered it was “dirty” according to Islam) and detonating a pressure-cooker bomb in a crowded area of New York City.
A digital trail led police to finding his connection to ISIS.

US FGM Investigation Widens
Meanwhile, US media dances around the issues.
Following revelations about two Michigan doctors accused of performing female genital mutilation, the child welfare agency in Detroit is moving to terminate parental rights in at least two families.
At present, the children are still in their homes. Their parents were ordered to appear in court in a few days.
The case involves doctors and members of a Muslim community called Dawoodi Bohra. The defendants in the case are Jumana Nagarwala, 44, a female emergency room doctor and Dr. Fakhruddin Attar and his wife Farida. Dr. Attar ran the clinic where the FGM was allegedly performed. Attar is accused of allowing Nagarwala to use his clinic to perform FGM and his wife is said to have held the girls’ hands as they underwent the brutally-painful procedure which is normally performed with anesthesia.

Time for a US Ban on the Muslim Brotherhood, but Why?
What do they believe?
A lot of people in the United States are talking about banning the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the world’s largest Islamist organizations. The movement has many detractors and supporters, and it can be difficult to know what’s really going on.
So who is the Muslim Brotherhood? What do its members really believe and why might they be a big enough threat to ban? And, how does that impact me?
 What is the Muslim Brotherhood?
The Muslim Brotherhood is an international movement originally founded in Egypt with branches all over the world, including in the United States. Although it is not a single monolithic movement, the disparate factions share the same foundational ideology. The group does not represent all or even most Muslims (despite claiming to) and is fundamentally a political rather than a religious movement.

'Reformist' Rouhani Fights Hardliners in 2nd Iranian Presidential Debate
Rouhani also shockingly admitted he has no control of the IRGC
The second presidential debate took place in Iran and while President Rouhani came under heavy fire from hardline rivals, they all agreed on one thing: The nuclear deal is a good thing for the theocratic, jihadist Islamic Republic of Iran.
The first debate was won by Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri in a landslide, while the candidate favored by the Supreme Leader, Ebrahim Raisi, was seen as the big loser. One online poll showed that 42% said Jahangiri won, followed by 34% for Rouhani and 15% for Bagher Qalibaf. Most observers assume Jahangiri will drop out and endorse Rouhani before the vote takes place.
In this debate, Rouhani’s rivals did not criticize the deal per se but criticized him for not achieving the benefits that he said the deal would deliver. The conservatives said Rouhani has failed to exploit the economic opportunities that are now available. They also say he has favored foreign companies over domestic ones.
Raisi, for example, said, “This deal was like a check that the government has been unable to cash.” Rouhani defended his performance, pointing out that production of oil could have been 200,000 barrels per day rather than the 2 million barrels being produced now.

What Does The Muslim Brotherhood Do?
What does one of the world’s most powerful Islamist groups actually do?
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Monday, May 8, 2017 
The Muslim Brotherhood is an international Islamist movement with branches around the world.

Yesterday Clarion Project detailed what the Muslim Brotherhood believes in – namely the establishment of an Islamic caliphate as a system of government and the implementation of sharia as state law.


But what does it actually do?
Muslim-Brotherhood-linked groups perform a variety of activities. These include missionary work (dawah), social justice oriented activities (such as running soup kitchens), running political activism campaigns, organizing conferences to spread their ideology and even running fully-fledged political parties themselves. The most famous of these is the Freedom and Justice Party in Egypt.
In more violent zones, most notably Syria and the Gaza strip, Muslim Brotherhood affiliates have formed terrorist groups and waged jihad. In 1982, an uprising in Hama was brutally crushed by the Syrian Arab Army of Hafez al-Assad, Bashar al-Assad’s father,

to Tell Your Members of Congress to Designate the Brotherhood as a Terror Organization
The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt is mounting a desperate campaign in the U.S. to avoid being designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, according to The Seventh Day, one of Egypt’s largest news outlets.
The political winds have changed in Washington and the Brotherhood is running scared. U.S. President Donald Trump has made clear his support of Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, announcing he stands with the Egyptian president in his fight against terror and extremist groups that are threatening one of America’skey allies in the Middle East.
After tens of millions of Egyptians took to the streets to protest the abuse and power grabs of former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi (a member of the Brotherhood’s political party) in the summer of 2013, El-Sisi and the military took control of Egypt. He was elected president in 2014.
El-Sisi’s recently successful meeting with Trump in Washington set a Brotherhood plan in motion to gain support of members of Congress and academia to block a move to designate the organization as terrorists.

Al-Qaeda in Yemen Confirms Muslim Brotherhood Ties
Another proof of the Brotherhood's terrorist links
“‘We fight along all Muslims in Yemen, together with different Islamic groups,’ he said, adding that his followers have teamed up with an array of factions — including the ultraconservative Salafis, ‘the Muslim Brotherhood and also our brothers among the sons of (Sunni) tribes’ — against Yemen’s Shiite rebels known as Houthis.”
Al-Qaeda’s links to the Yemeni branch in the Muslim Brotherhood go far back, particularly through a jihadist cleric named Abdul-Majeed al-Zindani. He is a co-founder of the Brotherhood’s party in the country which is called Islah.
Zindani is also very close to Hamas, the Palestinian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Zindani was deeply involved in the top tier of the international jihadist network that included Osama Bin Laden. Before his death, Bin Laden picked Yemen as the best “launching point” for establishing a theocratic Islamic State. He was undoubtedly aware of the Brotherhood cleric’s role in creating that environment and thankful for it.

Middle Eastern Men Say We Want to Control Women
A new study on what men really think of gender equality.
Middle Eastern Men Say We Want to Control Women

Even though men in the Middle East clearly believe in a patriarchal system with limited equality for women, the system isn’t working so well for them, according to the results of a survey of 10,000 people across Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco and the Palestinian territories.
“There is the perception about the Arab region that the patriarchy clearly dominates and that it is fantastic for men,” said Shereen El Feki, who led the study, speaking to the BBC.
Depending on the location, between 20-50 percent of men indicated that they were ashamed to face their families due to lack of money.
El Feki said that the survey report suggested that “the patriarchy works for the very small minority who are on the top of that pyramid. For the rest down below, lots of women, but also from the results of the survey, many, many men, life is very tough.”
Unsurprisingly, the majority of men – up to 90 percent in some locations – expected to have the right to control their wives’ freedoms, from what she wears to how often they have sex.
A quarter of the men surveyed indicated that they did accept equality for women in some areas but believe that a woman’s primary role is in the home.
Less than half of the men surveyed said that married women had the same right to work as men. They also stipulated this acceptance on two conditions: that the man remains the primary breadwinner and the women remain the ones primarily responsible for taking care of the household.
However, a quarter of the men between the ages of 18 and 59 indicated that they wanted to spend more time caring for their children. They also supported certain laws that safeguard women as well as women in leadership positions.

Courts Save Girl, 14, Abducted and Converted to Islam
However, the story isn't over. In Pakistan, it rarely is.
After a Christian girl was abducted from her house and forcibly converted to Islam by a Pakistani police officer, the entire Christian community is living in fear of the repercussions of the case. Although the girl was miraculously returned to her family by the courts, the story isn’t over.
Officer Munir Ahmed was a frequent visitor to the family home of Sumbal Arif, 14 in Hafizabad, Punjab. Perhaps because Sumbal’s father was no longer alive, he realized Elizabeth Arif (Sumbal’s mother) and her children were vulnerable.
According to the initial reports about the case, one day in December 2016, while Ahmed’s sister-in-law Mariam Bibi was visiting at the Arif’s house, Sumbal had an argument with her sister.
Taking advantage of the situation, Mariam took Sumbal with her to Ahmed’s house. Ahmed, with the help of his wife, then forcibly converted Sumbal to Islam, She was then given the new identity of Fatima Noor.

Hospital Reportedly Forces Christians to Attend Muslim Morning Assembly

Christian staff at the Mian Mir Hospital in Lahore, Pakistan are reportedly forced to read the Quran in the hospital’s morning assembly or be marked absent for the day.
The medical superintendent of the hospital, Dr. Muhammad Sarfraz, allegedly slapped a Christian paramedic staffer for not attending morning assembly. Following that, other paramedic staff reportedly went on strike, shutting down some of the hospital’s functions in protest.
This brought media attention to the policy.
A Christian staffer named Marshal told The Express Tribune the hospital administration was pressuring staff who joined in to leave their jobs.
“This act of the MS is a violation of the Constitution of Pakistan,” he said.
Some Muslim members of staff sided with the Christians. “It is professional workplace; I don’t know why the administration is forcing our Christian brothers to do this,” paramedical staffer Fahad Ahmed said. “This is totally unacceptable.”

A Dying Breed - The Fate of Iraq's Animals
But the survivors help humans through the cost of war.
We all know the destructive implications or war – the dead soldiers and civilians, the wounded who become disabled for life and the damage to infrastructure and environment as one. Rare is it to hear discussions regarding the harm to wildlife.
Animal numbers dropped dramatically during the ongoing fighting in Iraq and in ISIS areas in particular because:
As the economy slumped people used more local livestock for food. This was particularly so in the case of ISIS which took many animals to feed local fighters and those in Syria.
People fled their homes and left their pets behind – with no food and water in the desert heat.
As a result, sighting animals is the exception rather than the norm in 2017 Iraq. Cats have all but disappeared and one sees only the occasional wandering dog.
On top of this of course are the ISIS bans on pets.
And it’s not only domesticated animals. Take a look at what remains of Mosul zoo:

JerusalemOnline news editor and political analyst Rachel Avraham, who recently published a book titled Women and Jihad: Debating Palestinian Female Suicide Bombings in the American, Israeli and Arab Media, explains how the international media continues to justify Palestinian female terrorism from the Second Intifada to our times.
Brian Jenkins proclaimed, “Terrorism is theater.” According to my recently published book titled “Women and Jihad: Debating Palestinian Female Suicide Bombings in the American, Israeli and Arab Media,” terrorists do not engage in meaningless violence. Each terrorist act is carefully choreographed in order so that they can obtain maximum publicity for their cause. For the terror organizations, the goal is not to harm the immediate victims although that is certainly a bi-product of their wanton destruction but rather to solicit the attention of the wider spectators via the international press.

She was an FBI contractor assigned to investigate the world’s most dangerous terrorists. He was a German ex-rapper who once opened for popular rap artist DMX and is now the star of ISIS propaganda videos.
Their love affair has now been revealed for the first time by a CNN investigation.
When Daniela Greene, 38, fell in love with Denis Cuspert, aka Deso Dogg now styling himself Abu Talha al-Almani, the man she was supposed to be monitoring in 2014, she ran away to Syria to marry him.
Greene, originally from the Czech Republic, moved to the United States at a young age after spending some time in Germany. She was previously marriage to a U.S. soldier. She has a Masters degree in history from Clemson University.
She was hired by the FBI in 2011 and given top-level security clearance.
She was still married to her American husband when she fell in love with Cuspert. She filed a request for personal leave, saying she was going to visit family in Germany.
Instead she took a one-way flight to Istanbul and from there was smuggled into Syria.

News Analysis
Radical Group’s Chicago Conference Attended by 400 Imams and Students
Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, a particularly radical Salafist group, cannot be dismissed as fringe.
The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, a particularly radical Salafist group, is boasting that over 380 imams and students attended its 14th Annual Imams Conference in Chicago on March 24-27.
AMJA’s extremism is much more in-your-face than other “moderate” Islamist front groups in America.
Participants most certainly know what this group offers—and invested the time and money to attend the conference.
AMJA’s Arabic teachings outwardly promote seditious ideas like pursuing the incremental undermining of secular-democracy. American citizenship, for example, is acceptable as long as the citizen “(does) not accept indefinitely the law and legislation of that country and being indefinite belonging to the nation of the non-Muslim country.”

U.S.-Based Jihadi Cult Praises Terror Group

BY RYAN MAURO Tuesday, May 2, 2017
The Muslims of the Americas (MOA), a cultish Islamist group known for its “Islamic villages” in North America, will be announcing a “campaign to secure the liberation of Kashmir” from India today, May 2. MOA has been expressing solidarity with the Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist group, but don’t expect them to mention that in their press conference.

Though MOA has always advocated jihad against India and Hindus, their radical leader in Pakistan’s rhetoric towards India became particularly pronounced last year. Its publications have become increasingly focused on calling on Muslims to intervene in Kashmir. That advocacy has included indirect expressions of solidarity with Hizbul Mujahideen, an Islamist terrorist group.
In March, MOA’s Islamic Post newspaper published an article describing those involved in a 15-hour shootout with Indian forces as “Kashmiri freedom fighters.” It took the side of these fighters, decrying the “oppressive and violent treatment of the Kashmiri people by Indian forces.” The article then acknowledged the fight began when the Indians were searching for Hizbul Mujahideen.
MOA subtly expressed sympathy for the group in August 2016. Its newspaper included an article condemning India for killing a “top pro-independence militant leader.” It then identified that person as the Hizbul Mujahideen operations commander in Kashmir and emphasized the group’s popularity.
MOA has a history of reported ties to Hizbul-Mujahideen. In 1990, MOA wrote two letters to then president Bush condemning India in very similar language to its rhetoric today. The letters called on all Muslims to participate in jihad against India over its involvement in Kashmir and to support the “Kashmir Freedom Front.” The group was, according to author David L. Phillips, controlled by Hizbul-Mujahideen and fought for “union with Pakistan and Shari’a for Kashmir.”

Newly-Immigrated Muslim Women Honor Killed in Sweden
'We came here far from oppression, but some people have difficulty living freely.'
A growing phenomenon of honor killings in Sweden is being reported among newly-arrived Muslim women. The Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet published one such report, detailing the murder of a young mother named Bina who immigrated to Sweden from Iran.
Seven months after Bina (not her real name) arrived in Mariannelund, she was killed by her husband after she decided to separate from him and remove her hijab.
Bina was one of six women killed in 2016 shortly after arriving in Sweden.
Gan Heimer, a professor at The National Center for Knowledge on Men’s Violence Against Women based at Uppsala University, said that this is a new situation in Sweden that needs to be monitored.
Bina was just 21 years old when she was murdered. She came to Sweden with two of her older sisters and their families in November 2015. They were all placed in different refugee centers. Bina, her husband – who was also her cousin –and baby daughter were settled by the Swedish authorities in Mariannelund. By the following summer, she was dead.
Her two older sisters told the police that after they came to Sweden they both wanted to separate from their husbands, take off their hijabs. They asked the authorities for help to find a place they would be safe. Their sister, Bina, wanted to do the same.
Bina had tried to separate from her husband even before they left Iran because he was beating her. But her family had prevented her from so doing. In Mariannelund, Bina took off her hijab, a decision which her husband said he accepted. But one of her sisters, as well as other relatives, later said he was lying and felt insulted.
“He thought that other people were making fun of him — it was a matter of honor,” said a close friend of Bina’s during the investigation after her murder.
Bina’s husband was a religious fanatic, said a family member. Yet another family member said, “We came here far from oppression, but some people have difficulty living freely.”
After he murdered her, Bina’s husband put a hijab on her face and neck.
The court sentenced Bina’s husband to 17 years in prison after which time he will be deported from Sweden.

Terror Attack on Elton John Concert Foiled

A teenager in the UK faces a possible life sentence in prison for plotting a terror attack on an Elton John concert in London’s iconic Hyde Park, reported the Evening Standard.
After trying to get his case thrown out of court, Haroon Syed, 19, pleaded guilty to the charge of preparation of terrorist acts which occurred between April and September of 2016.
Syed was arrested after a sting operation found him trying to procure weapons for a terrorist attack he had planned to commit which would have involved machine gunning as many victims as possible before blowing himself up in a crowded venue. He specifically wanted a bomb packed with “lots of nails in it” to inflict the most gruesome type of damage.
He researched possible locations for the attack, including an upcoming Elton John concert in Hyde Park, located in central London.
Officers from the British security services caught Syed searching online for weapons, after which, posing as fellow jihadis, engaged him in chat forums.
The judge in the case said Syed faced a discretionary life sentence, meaning that the number of years he will actually have to serve is at the discretion of the government (versus a mandatory number of years).
Syed’s brother was also sent to prison for planning an ISIS-inspired attack on UK’s “Poppy Day,” which commemorates soldiers killed in World wars I and II.

Iran's Presidential Candidates' Crimes Against Humanity
The two front-runners are both implicated in the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners. Read how.
ran’s presidential election is scheduled for May 19. Last week the Guardian Council, the body controlled by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei which vets election candidates, eliminated all but six candidates. Only two of the remaining six are considered serious applicants for the Islamic Republic’s next president: incumbent President Hassan Rouhani and Ebrahim Raisi, a cleric currently heading the Astan Quds Razavi, a so-called charity foundation with an estimated value of $15 billion.
As far as the Iranian people are concerned, there is no difference between these two candidates and no fundamental change will result from the selection of either candidate.
However, this presidential election has set the stage for the Iranian people and the international community to witness the most unprecedented confessions by various candidates regarding the 1988 massacres and crimes against humanity carried out by the entire Islamic Republic regime.
Based on a decree issued by the leader of the Iranian Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran’s brutal ruler from 1979 until his death in 1989, the regime massacred over 30,000 political prisoners in a span of four months during the summer of 1988.

An American soldier killed in action in Iraq was named by the Pentagon as Weston C. Lee, 25, a 1st Lieutenant with the 82nd Airborne Division.
He was killed by an improvised explosive device which detonated while he was on patrol with his unit near Mosul. He had been providing advise-and-assist support to partnered forces.
Lee was deployed to Iraq in December 2016, his first deployment. His death is the second American fatality since the operation began to retake Mosul six months ago. Over 100 Special Forces soldiers are assisting Iraqi units in the operation, according to the Pentagon. Between 200-300 additional soldiers from Lee’s unit were deployed to Iraq to join the operation against ISIS in Mosul from their base in Fort Bragg North Carolina at the end of March.
The United States is believed to have around 7,000 soldiers currently deployed in Iraq, in addition to several hundred in Syria.
Last week President Donald Trump gave Defense Secretary Jim Mattis the authority to increase troop levels in Iraq and Syria in accordance with how he saw the need for soldiers to complete the mission, rather than having to request presidential approval.

Let’s Make ‘Never Again’ a Reality
Home > World > Iraq > Let’s Make ‘Never Again’ a Reality
BY JENNIFER BREEDON Thursday, April 27, 2017
Yazidi children flee Iraq and ISIS (Photo: Reuters)
This week marked Holocaust Remembrance Day and Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.
While we mourned the six-million Jews who were murdered by Adolf Hitler during World War II and the 1.5 Armenians who were slaughtered by the Turks between 1915 and 1917, I can only wonder if, in the future, we’ll be commemorating the genocide of the Christians and Yazidis in the Middle East– a genocide that’s happening today which most of us have sat by, purposely blinded to the atrocities.
This week, the remembrance days marked the brutal genocidal regimes that plagued the 20th Century, regimes whose intent was to target and destroy entire religious and ethnic groups.
On these days, we should not only remember the atrocities of Adolf Hitler and the Young Turks, but we must also consider the words of present day world leaders who hide their same genocidal intent under the auspices of destroying the state of Israel: Palestinian leaders who don’t recognize the right of Israel to exist; Iranian leaders who call for Israel to be wiped off the map.
Today, along with the Jews, the targets in the Middle East are the Christians and Yazidis. Yet, few political leaders accept that a genocide is occurring
A few weeks ago in Mosul, Iraq, an 11-year-old girl was freed from the slave-holds of ISIS by Iraqi forces. She was eight years old when she was first kidnapped by the brutal Islamist terror group. She was taken in 2014 along with several of her family members. Counter-terrorism experts in the region note it’s possible that over 3,000 young girls still remain enslaved by ISIS. Their lives consist of violent sex, gang rape and forced motherhood to breed the next generation of jihadis.
The young girl is from the same village as Nadia Murad, a young Yazidi woman who was kidnapped and held as a sex slave by ISIS and who is now a U.N. ambassador who is filing suit against ISIS at The Hague for war crimes .
The young girl’s mother and sisters—who were also sold into slavery—are now in Germany where many Yazidi slaves were sent following a campaign by a number of organizations and the German government to buy the Yazidi girls back from ISIS.

Clarion’s Facebook Fans Celebrate ISIS Boar Gore
Home > World > Iraq > Clarion’s Facebook Fans Celebrate ISIS Boar Gore
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Thursday, April 27, 2017
Well done Mrs. Boar! (Photo: REMY GABALDA / AFP / Getty Images)
Yesterday’s story about a herd of wild pigs trampling three ISIS fighters to death was much needed good news for our Facebook fans.
One user praised the heroic actions of “Squeal Team Six” with another citing “Porkie Power ”
Another speculated that “The boars had obviously had enough of ISIS as well and took matters into their little trotters.”
Others enjoyed our commentary, with one user writing “Love the puns, thrilled it was a true story!”
One person was won around to being a pig-lover, writing “FINALLY a worthwhile purpose for feral swine being on the planet! And I love that porkers took them out”
A user had no time for the boars however, accusing them of being “Islamophopig bigots.”
One of the best comments referenced Babe, saying “That’ll do pig, that’ll do.”

What happens to the female members of the feared al-Khansaa brigade, charged by ISIS with enforcing its draconian morality standards by any means necessary?
Given that the women are clothed head to toe in black, they are able to escape ISIS held territory more easily than male fighters, who can be identified and arrested.
“Until this day, I wake up in the middle of the night trembling,” a woman named Um Omar told Al-Arabiya. “Each time I feel footsteps next to my tent or a person bumping into it, I imagine it is one of the ‘biters’ of ISIS who has come to kill me.”
The al-Khansaa brigade, known colloquially as “biters,” reportedly carries out all sorts of abuse against women who commit even the most minor of infractions against ISIS dress codes.
According to the Russian media outlet Sputnik, these punishments include using rending instruments to tear the flesh even of children caught stepping outside without their male guardian.

Hijab Rights for All Women?
Home > World > Austria > Hijab Rights for All Women?
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Thursday, April 27, 2017
In stating his support for the right of Muslim women to wear a hijab, Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen rightly states that it is every women’s right to wear “whatever she likes.” And that’s the point.
Van der Bellen laments that due to rampant Islaophobia, “There will come a day when we will have to ask all women to wear a headscarf – ALL – out of solidarity towards those who do it for religious reasons.”
We obviously hope the situation in Europe doesn’t come to that – where feelings towards Muslims by the Austrian populace are so hostile that a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf would not be able to exist in society without being notably harassed.
Iran’s 6 Presidential Candidates for May 19 “Election”

BY RYAN MAURO Wednesday, April 26, 2017

The Iranian regime has approved of six presidential candidacies, disqualifying over 1,600 — including over 130 women — who filed to run. The “election” will be held on May 19, followed by a runoff between the top two vote-getters if no candidate wins a majority.
Before reviewing the candidates, we should look at how this sham “election” takes place.
To run for president in Iran, the Guardian Council must approve of the candidacy. Only six of over 1,600 candidacies were approved. Thus, it must be assumed that any distinction being mentioned between “moderate” and “conservative” candidates is very minor. The debates and emphasis on these distinctions make these differences seem much bigger than they really are. All the candidates profess loyalty to the theocratic regime and its proclaimed “Islamic Revolution” for Iran and the world.
Who makes up the Guardian Council? Pro-regime clerics chosen directly or indirectly by the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei.

Childhood Is the Kingdom Where Nobody Dies
So wrote the poet Edna St. Vincent Millay. Childhood should be sounds, smells, hopscotch, skateboards, pink tutus and ballet shoes, football and mud puddles, bedtime stories of once upon a time and innocence where a universe means toys and sticky toffee. Sadly the very dark hour of reason and cruel reality dawned at a tender young age for the Springs kids from pastural Yazidi villages in Shingal, northwest Iraq.
The Kingdom of Childhood died a sudden death as classmates were gunned down in cold blood. The Kingdom of Childhood was murdered when fathers fell motionless, hands tied, blindfolded in hot, heaving mass graves. The Kingdom of Childhood was desecrated when mothers were packed into buses and carted off into the bowels of Mosul and Raqqa to be raped and tortured. The Kingdom of Childhood was brutalized as girls barely old enough to dress a doll became kitchen slaves in the kingdom of Daesh (Islamic State). The Kingdom of Childhood was decimated as grade one kids were forced to say that they were infidels, sons of infidels and were forcibly recruited into the kingdom of death. The Kingdom of Childhood died on August 3, 2014. Thousands of brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, classmates, colleagues, betrothed, all died that day. They were not nobodies. They were somebodies and everyone. Childhood died along with them. The Kingdom of Childhood was officially dead in Shingal.
Here at Springs of Hope Foundation we live among the living and the dead.

The Syriac Military Council, a Christian militia in Syria opposed to the Assad regime, condemned Turkey for bombing its U.S.-backed Kurdish allies who are fighting ISIS. The Christians accused Turkey of continuing the genocidal and anti-democratic campaigns of the Ottoman Empire.
The statement reads in part:
“This attack came at the 102nd commemoration of the Syriac Assyrian, Armenian and Greek genocide ‘Sayfo,’ while Turkey is continuing the same policies against the people living in the Middle East, trying to overthrow the democratic project that our people are working together to reach a political and administrational system based on pluralism, justice, equality and democracy.”
Turkey’s airstrikes killed 40 Kurdish fighters in Iraq and 30 in Syria. The Kurds in Syria belonged to the People Defense Units (YPG). The Syriac Military Council (MFS) and its female wing, the Beth Nahrin Women Protection Forces, are allied with the YPG Kurds in a U.S.-backed alliance named the Syrian Democratic Forces

Saudi Arabia Appointed to UN Commission on Women
Home > World > Saudi Arabia > Saudi Arabia Appointed to UN Commission on Women
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Tuesday, April 25, 2017
Saudi Arabia, which has been labeled “the world’s most misogynistic regime” in the world was elected to the U.N.’s Commission on the Status of Woman. The commission is “exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women,” reported UN Watch.
The kingdom will serve on the commission from 2018-2022.
Commenting on the election, Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, said, “Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief.”
Neuer called the election “a black day for women’s rights and for all human rights.”
Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women are not allowed to drive. Every woman must have a male guardian, who must approve each life decision a woman makes, from schooling to career and from travel to health care. A woman’s guardian is typically her father or husband if she is married but could even be her underage son.

JerusalemOnline news editor and political analyst Rachel Avraham, who recently published a book titled Women and Jihad: Debating Palestinian Female Suicide Bombings in the American, Israeli and Arab Media, explains how the international media continues to justify Palestinian female terrorism from the Second Intifada to our times.
Brian Jenkins proclaimed, “Terrorism is theater.” According to my recently published book titled “Women and Jihad: Debating Palestinian Female Suicide Bombings in the American, Israeli and Arab Media,” terrorists do not engage in meaningless violence. Each terrorist act is carefully choreographed in order so that they can obtain maximum publicity for their cause. For the terror organizations, the goal is not to harm the immediate victims although that is certainly a bi-product of their wanton destruction but rather to solicit the attention of the wider spectators via the international press.
Women and Jihad argues that during the Second Intifada in Israel (September 2000 – February, 2005), the Arab, American and even the Israeli media gave into the publicity objectives of the Palestinian terror groups. The media in the Arab world for the most part glorified Palestinian terrorism, thus rallying the Arab masses behind the Palestinian cause.

Open Letter to Mike Pence: Stop Saudis From Steamrolling Indonesian Islam

BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Monday, April 24, 2017
US Vice-President Mike Pence with Indonesian High Priest Nasaruddin Umar. (Photo: ADI WEDA/AFP/Getty Images)
Dear Vice-President Pence,
In your trip to Indonesia on Thursday April 20, you praised that country’s tradition of “modern Islam.”
You praised Indonesia’s indigenous form of Islam as an “inspiration to the world.”
You are quite right that Indonesia has a long track record of propagating a moderate and inclusive form of Islam. In 2003, former Indonesian President Kyai Haji Abdurrahman Wahid co-founded the LibForAll Foundation, which promotes peaceful Islamic values around the world.
Then deputy national security advisor for combating terrorism, Juan Zarate, called LibForAll “the loadstar in efforts to defeat the ideology of radical Islam.”
However, Indonesia has also seen increasing examples of religious intolerance, especially since 2005, when President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono declared he would take strict measures against “deviant beliefs.”
In February, Human Rights Watch stated “Indonesia’s legal system perpetuates discrimination against religious minorities.” The hardline Islamic Defenders Front staged rallies demanding the death of the former governor of Jakarta following a dubious accusation on blasphemy – an accusation which is thought to have cost the man’s reelection.

Pope Francis is heading to Cairo this week for a conference addressing religious extremism and misinterpretations of religious texts.
Al Azhar, the most prestigious Islamic university in the Sunni Muslim world, is hosting the two-day International Peace Conference, in conjunction with the UAE-based Muslim Council of Elders. More than 300 Muslim and Christian scholars, leaders and politicians are expected to attend the event, convened by Al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed al-Tayyib.
“This conference will send a message to the whole world that all religious figures and representatives of religions gathered in Al Azhar are on common terms with regard to the call for global peace among religious leaders and the whole human community,” the Muslim Council of Elders said in a statement.
The Vatican’s head of security has already arrived in Cairo, along with a delegation from the Vatican, to coordinate security arrangements.
The Pope is scheduled to give a speech alongside al-Tayyib at the conference. He will meet with Egyptian President Abdelfattah el-Sisi and Coptic Pope Tawadros II, and lead mass for Egyptian Catholics.

Iranian Opposition Reveals Alleged Secret Nuke Activity
Home > World > Iran
BY RYAN MAURO Monday, April 24, 2017
The National Council of Resistance in Iran, a group that wants to replace the current regime with a secular-democracy, publicly released detailed information about alleged covert nuclear activities in Iran. The accusation immediately followed the Trump Administration’s determination that Iran is complying with the nuclear deal.
NCRI says that the newly-identified site is in the Parchin military base, the place that Iran has been most resistant to granting outside access to. It is known that Iran working on the high explosives necessary for a nuclear weapon’s “trigger” at Parchin. NCRI says that the effort was simply moved from one location within Parchin to another because the regime believes there is an “extremely low” chance of the IAEA inspectors entering the area.
The new location is vaguely referred to as a “Research Academy” by regime personnel, NCRI claims. It is located at the 500-acre “Plan 6” part of the Parchin site. The regime began building tunnels there in 2005 so it can serve as a backup site to the high explosives work in Parchin that was happening at the time.

The secret site is run by the Center for Research and Expansion of Technologies on Explosions and Impact (also known as METFAZ). The group substantiated its claims by identifying 15 members of the METFAZ unit that is overseeing the high explosives work.

Who Did the Killing
In 1915, leaders of the Turkish government known at the time as the “Young Turks,” decided to massacre and expel the estimated two million Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire. The Young Turks had taken power in 1908 after overthrowing the Turkish Sultan Abdul Hamid II.

Life Insurance for Terrorists’ Families?
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Sunday, April 23, 2017
Ilhan Omar, Democratic Representative for Cedar Rapids in the Minnesota state legislature.
Legislation to allow life insurance companies to deny paying out on policies taken out by terrorists killed while carrying out attacks against Americans passed the Minnesota House of Representatives on Thursday.
The bill was passed 127-2 and will now go to the Senate.
The goal of the bill is bill “is to make certain that folks don’t benefit [from terrorism] and this limits the beneficiary to the premiums that were paid in,” according to Democratic Representative Debra Hilstrom. “It limits the exposure for the insurance company when someone is committing an act of terrorism.”
It was inspired by the case of San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook, who had life insurance worth $275,000 before he carried out the attack which killed 14 people in December 2015.
If passed into law, the bill will apply to all life insurance contracts, both future and current.
Two legislators, however, opposed the bill. They were Democrat John Lesch of St. Paul and Ilhan Omar, of Cedar Riverside.
Ilhan Omar was previously feted for becoming Minnesota’s first female Muslim state legislator.

Choosing Oppression is NOT Freedom
Home > Human Rights > Human Rights Violators > Lack of Basic Freedoms
BY GUEST CONTRIBUTOR Thursday, April 20, 2017
The burqa and the hijab are clear symbols of oppression. The covering of a woman’s face or hair is an extreme form of modesty that makes the statement that her mere existence is of a sexual nature. Rather than men being taught to control their sexual thoughts or impulses, the burden is laid solely upon the woman to keep the man from becoming aroused by her. Wearing a burqa or hijab is a public display of a male’s presumed ownership of the female’s body, making the statement that what a woman wears is a reflection of how a man will treat her. However, in recent political statements and fashion trends, the hijab is being displayed as an act of freedom because of certain women who choose to wear it.

Presenting the hijab as a symbol of freedom is a dangerous concept because it undercuts the oppression the hijab represents to women who are forced to wear it, and it misleads people into supporting oppression as a choice. Just because someone chooses to give up their freedom, it does not mean that choice has made them free. Harriet Tubman, a runaway slave who led over 300 hundred escaped slaves to freedom, is quoted as saying:

“I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”

Women who embrace the hijab are in many ways similar to slaves who remained loyal to their masters.

During the American slave trade, imported Africans were brutalized and tortured in the most horrendous ways in order to instill enough fear to keep them enslaved mentally. Slaves who tried to escape were torn to pieces by dogs, branded with searing hot irons, or whipped to death. The same fear tactics are utilized by Islamist through violent honor killings and torture, to keep women conformed to the hijab. Women who have refused to wear the hijab in strict Islamic countries have been raped, burned with acid, or murdered.

Saudis Warn US of Economic Retaliation Over 9/11 Bill
Home > World > Saudi Arabia
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Tuesday, April 19, 2016

Saudi Arabia has threatened economic retaliation if the U.S. passes pending legislation that would allow victims of terrorist attacks to sue foreign governments that are responsible.

The bipartisan bill, co-sponsored by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, and Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, would permit victims of 9/11 to sue the Saudis and other financial partners of terrorism. The Obama administration is vigorously trying to block the bill.

Saudi Arabia warned it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars of American assets if the bill is passed. Delivering the message personally in Washington, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told Congress Saudi Arabia would sell $750 billion in treasury securities and other assets before they would be in jeopardy of being frozen by American courts.

Saudi Arabia denied involvement in the 9/11 attacks, however, the official U.S. government report on the attack contains 28 censored pages on the topic of “foreign support for the September 11 hijackers.” Investigators say these pages confirm the Saudi’s role in the 2001 attacks that claimed the lives of close to 3,000 people and injured more than 6,000.

For years, the Saudis have asked for the release of the censored pages, but the Bush administration said disclosure would damage the U.S.’ ability to gather intelligence on terrorists. The Obama administration also refused to release the redacted pages.

Fifteen of the 19 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. Other evidence of Saudi involvement in the terrorist attacks includes information leaked from the censored pages including the documentation of a series of phone calls between one of the hijackers’ Saudi handlers in San Diego and the Saudi Embassy, and the transfer of $130,000 from then-Saudi Ambassador Prince Bandar’s family checking account to one of the hijacker’s handlers in San Diego.

Zacarias Moussaoui, the so-called “20th hijacker,” who was sent to prison for his role in the attacks said members of the Saudi royal family donated funds to al-Qaeda. He also said he personally met a Saudi diplomat in Washington to plot the assassination of the U.S. president using a surface-to air missile. The two discussed bombing the U.S. Embassy in London as well.

"The Saudis have known what they did in 9/11, and they knew that we knew what they did, at least at the highest levels of the U.S. government," said former Sen. Bob Graham, co-chair of the 9/11 congressional inquiry commission.

Families tried in the past to sue the Saudi government, but the cases were rejected due to a 1976 law granting foreign nations immunity from lawsuits in the American judicial system.

"I think part of the concern is that somehow this is a thumb in the eye to Saudi Arabia, a valuable ally," said Senate-sponsor Cornyn. "It's not open-ended and it's not targeted at Saudi Arabia."

Cornyn also dismissed the threats from Saudi Arabia. "It's seems overly defensive to me and I doubt they can do it," he said. "I don't think we should let foreign countries dictate the domestic policy of the United States."

Other analysts say it is unlikely the Saudis will follow through on their threats.

All of the presidential candidates support the bill, expect John Kasich, who has not commented on it to

Why Don’t Police Care About “Allahu Akbar” in Fresno?

Please write to local newspaper The Fresno Bee to express your concern that terrorism is not being properly investigated. You can reach opinion editor Bill McEwen here: bmcewen@fresnobee.com
A gunman shouting “Allahu Akbar” killed three people on a rampage in Fresno, California, on Tuesday morning local time. The suspect, Kori Ali Muhammad, 39, surrendered to officers at the scene and said “you guys are looking for me.”
At this point the FBI is not treating this as a terrorist incident.
Muhammad fired 16 rounds in two minutes. The first victim has now been identified as 34-year-old, father-of-two Zackary Randalls, who was shot while sitting in the passenger seat
Police said Muhammad was wanted for the murder of a white security guard Carl Williams at a Motel 6 on April 13, and decided to kill as many white people as possible.
“Immediately upon the individual seeing the officer he literally dove onto the ground and was taken into custody and as he was taken into custody he yelled out ‘Allahu Akhbar,’” according to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer.

A doctor in Michigan was charged with performing female genital mutilation on girls as young as six. Some of the girls were shipped to the clinic in Livonia from out of state to undergo the illegal procedure.
Female genital mutilation is the complete or partial removal of the clitoris and other external female genitalia. It has no medical benefit and is deeply harmful to those forced to suffer it.
Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Northville, Michigan was formally charged with performing female genital mutilation on underage girls. One girl was reportedly told she was going on a “special trip” to “get the germs out.”
“According to the complaint, despite her oath to care for her patients, Dr. Nagarwala is alleged to have performed horrifying acts of brutality on the most vulnerable victims,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Blanco. “The Department of Justice is committed to stopping female genital mutilation in this country, and will use the full power of the law to ensure that no girls suffer such physical and emotional abuse.”

A 14-year-old boy had his penis amputated and was blinded by a man who suspected him of having a sexual relationship with his daughter.
The incident took place in the Punjabi capital Lahore.
The main suspect, Hanif, gathered three accomplices, Amir, Ashfaq Azam and Waqar. They allegedly kidnapped the teenager from school, took him to a deserted place, chopped off his penis and stabbed his eyes.
The boy was later found and taken to a hospital. The boy was “robbed of his sight for the rest of his life but doctors managed to save his life,” according to a report filed with the police.
Although the incident took place in February, it has now received media attention since the family of the mutilated boy are protesting about it, demanding the police take action.

Dina Ali Lasloom, 24, dreamed of a life away from the stifling oppression of a woman’s existence in Saudi Arabia. So she saved up money, booked a flight and ran away from her abusive family to start a new life in Australia.
But when she got to the Philippines, a place she was only meant to be in for a few hours to change flights, her passport was confiscated by authorities. They had received a call from the Saudi Embassy rescinding the passport and requesting Philippines authorities to detain Ms. Ali until her family arrived to take her back to Saudi Arabia.
According to witness accounts they beat her and dragged her kicking and screaming back on plane back to Saudi Arabia.
She recorded a heartfelt video plea for help in Manila airport, stating she would be killed by her family if she was returned to Saudi Arabia.
Activists confirmed she touched down in Riyadh but her whereabouts are now unknown. Activists around the world have taken up her cause #SaveDinaAli has been trending on Twitter.
Another woman, Alaa Anazi, was reportedly detained by Saudi authorities while protesting for the release of Dina Ali.

Egypt: Rounded-Up 13 Muslim Brotherhood Terrorists
BY RAN MEIR Wednesday, April 19, 2017
Egypt says it’s captured terrorists across four provinces. The 13 men are Muslim Brotherhood members according to Arabic media outlet Al-Arabiya.
The cell was planning a bombing campaign against governmental institutions, Christian centers and assassinations of public figures and police officials, the country’s Interior Ministry said. The idea was to create turmoil, the ministry said on April 16.
Security officials discovered hidden bomb-making facilities, shells, anti-personnel mines, hand grenades, automatic weapons and ammunition in two farms. There was Persian writing on the mines and some weaponry was labeled “made in Iran.”
This is proof of the close connection between Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood, a security source told Al-Arabiya. Purchases are negotiated directly between the two in third countries, he added.

France Foils Election-Eve Terror Attack
Home > World > France
BY ELLIOT FRIEDLAND Wednesday, April 19, 2017
French police officers say they foiled a terror plot scheduled for the eve of the upcoming French presidential election.
Two men, aged 23 and 29, were arrested in Marseilles on April 18 in possession of a machine gun, two handguns and an Islamic-State flag. Explosives were also found during a search of a rented apartment.
The men are “suspected of wanting to imminently commit a violent act on the eve of the French presidential election,” according to French Interior Minister Matthias Fekl.
He said 50,000 soldiers, gendarmes and police would be deployed across the 67,000 polling stations to guard each stage of the election and that the presidential campaigns of the various contenders had been informed of the terrorist threat.

Why Are Soccer Hooligans Wearing Niqabs?
Home > World > Sweden
BY MEIRA SVIRSKY Thursday, April 6, 2017
Soccer hooligans in Sweden have taken to wearing niqabs, face veils mandated for women in some Islamist societies, to avoid detection from police, reported news website Heat Street.
Since fans were recently banned from wearing masks at games by the government, soccer fans have found a loophole that allows for the wearing of religious dress.
Pictures from a weekend game show fans with niqabs waving a banner mocking the new law saying, “Thanks for the loophole.”
The law was intended to stop violence between fans from rival teams, which escalated last year when a fan wearing a mask charged the pitch and attacked a rival goalkeeper.
Take a look at our guide to Islamic clothing for women.

Hijab, Female Oppression and the Left
Home > Political Islam > In the US > Public Issues
BY GUEST CONTRIBUTOR Sunday, April 16, 2017
by Linda Goudsmit
Only a left-wing liberal living in subjective reality could promote the hijab — the quintessential symbol of feminine oppression — as fashion. This is yet another salvo in the attempt to Islamicize the West by making the unacceptable dictates of sharia law acceptable.
Psychologically speaking, it is well known that familiarity brings acceptance, so the purpose of making the hijab fashionable and familiar is to make hijabs (and oppressive sharia law) acceptable. This is a deliberate strategy of indoctrination designed to change public perception of the hijab from a symbol of oppression (objective reality) to a symbol of fashion (subjective reality). Anyone who participates in this idiocy is a useful idiot.
The “Women’s” March organized by Linda Sarsour is another contradiction in terms. In supporting sharia law, Sarsour supports tenets that deny individual freedom to women and the LGBT community. Is this what these marching women want?

Islamism: Testing the Grounds for Censorship
Home > World > Denmark
BY CLARION PROJECT Sunday, April 16, 2017

Special to Clarion by Terri Murray
The need to address Islam’s religious privilege came into focus in February when Denmark’s state prosecution service decided to enforce the blasphemy section of its Criminal Code by fining a 42-year-old man who burned a copy of the Koran and posted a video of the act in a Facebook group.
The blasphemy fine is especially troubling since the Danish authorities did not prosecute in a similar case when Christianity’s sacred text was burned.
Denmark is one of the most liberal countries in Europe. In 2005, its prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen defended the publication of 12 cartoons of Mohammed, stating, “In Denmark, the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press is not up for negotiation.”
During his weekly media briefing, the prime minister further noted that the crisis was no longer about the 12 drawings in Jyllands-Posten. “It’s about everything else and different agendas in the Muslim world. It’s obvious that extremist circles exploit the situation.”
It seems Danish freedom of expression has deteriorated considerably since 2005, in part owing to intimidation and a chilling climate of fear, in which de facto blasphemy laws are enforced largely via extra-judicial execution.

“Yes, Syria would be better off without Assad. Assad is the main problem to why Syrians are suffering, the only problem is, if we remove him, we must be dedicated to helping the country get back on its feet again and not abandoning the country as we did in Libya or even in Iraq which was Obamas mistake to move troops out of Iraq too early.”
A sarin gas attack killed dozens of civilians in Idlib province in Syria. It is believed to have been carried out by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad against his own people. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights at least 72 people were killed, including children.
The Syrian regime denied responsibility for the attack. Russia issued a statement blaming the rebels, saying a Syrian regime airstrike hit a factory filled with poisonous mines destined for use in Iraq.
Would Syria be better with or without Assad? Take our poll below.
The Trump administration said Assad and his allies Russia and Iran bore “great moral responsibility” for the massacre.
“Today’s attack is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said at a news briefing. “These heinous actions by the Bashar al-Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he’d establish a red line against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The U.S. stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable act.”
Atrocities like this are the reason for the rebellion against the Assad regime which has gone on since 2011. Assad’s callous disregard for the lives of his people and his ruthless commitment to remaining in power at all costs are destroying his country.
When faced with a choice of being bombed with sarin gas by a cruel dictator, or taking up arms and fighting to remove that dictator, even if the people fighting to remove him are Islamist extremists, it is entirely understandable why people who otherwise would not support that ideology would throw their lot in with jihadi groups.
Since the beginning of the war Assad has attempted to present the West with a binary choice between him and terrorist factions. A former Syrian intelligence official said in 2014 that Assad deliberately released extremist prisoners in order to subvert the initially peaceful protests and force this binary.

Why is the Dept. of Education Promoting Islam to School Kids?
Home > Political Islam > In the US > Public Issues
BY GUEST CONTRIBUTOR Thursday, April 13, 2017
by Dan Miller
The U.S. Department of Education has proselytized in our public schools on behalf Islam for many years through its “Access Islam” program. Federally funded, it is directed at children in grades 5 through 12. The Christian Action Network recently demanded that President Trump’s recently confirmed Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, terminate the program.
According to an article at Breitbart, a predecessor program began during the Bush administration in 2005. It “simply taught students about the traditions, culture, and holidays of Islam. Then, it became greatly expanded under the Obama administration. It has continued to develop, and now has had a greater, broader outreach.”

Meet Hind…

Special to Clarion Project by Anwar El-Iraqi
Hind, 43, lives with her elderly mother. She paints, swims, writes poetry, plays soccer and enjoys fixing electrical items and motor vehicles – a “veritable man trapped in a woman’s body,” she said in an interview with Clarion contributor Anwar El-Iraqi.
Hind follows Clarion Project on Twitter. The following is Anwar’s full interview with Hind which was conducted via WhatsApp:
Clarion: What are the main obstacles standing before you and other Saudi women, and how do you overcome them?
Hind: Nothing is easy, so it’s hard to talk about things that are particularly difficult. There’s nothing we can do. We can’t really live. We can’t register for school or study unless it’s via our guardian. We can’t travel unless it’s with a guardian. We can’t even get an ID card unless it’s via someone who knows you.
We can only go out if we are on foot or if we stop a car and pay the driver a huge amount much to take us. All a Saudi woman owns is the clothes she wears and a small amount of money (which buys little).
Saudi women simply can’t make decisions concerning themselves.

Integration of Muslims in U.S., West Might Be Easier Than Seems
BY RAN MEIR Thursday, April 13, 2017

Integration is one of the measures by which one measures the progressiveness of a society. Equal opportunities for all should be a given in a democratic society. For integration to work requires more than mere equality.
We shouldn’t only look within our own communities, which is of course the easiest thing to do and the default mode. Rather, we must look beyond these walls.
Muslims in the West are in a difficult position. Many want to integrate but factors such as religious differences, sharia law, traditions and the status of women pile up.
The greatest problem is of course the spread of terror from other parts of the world. The disaffected are the most influenced by radical ideas. The least integrated are the most prone to carrying out terror attacks.
For integration to succeed we need to demonstrate how it contributes to creating a better environment for all, including the Muslims themselves. This trumps a mutual focus on negatives and suspicions of the unknown.
The Solution
Societal groups should put a greater emphasis on recognizing their similarities and their differences.

Iran Sanctions: The Next Necessary Step
BY SHAHRIAR KIA Thursday, April 13, 2017

The United States has imposed sanctions on 30 foreign companies or individuals for transferring sensitive technology to Iran for its missile program or for violating export controls on Iran. The new sanctions imposed on entities and individuals who have assisted the Iranian regime’s missile program comprise a positive step to prevent the mullahs’ expanding missile program, which pursues no objective but warmongering and the spread of fundamentalism.
Designating the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO), and imposing sanctions against all its affiliated institutions and entities is a necessary and important measure to stop Tehran’s belligerent and terrorist activities in the region.
When it comes to the question of Iran, a change of guards in Washington has also brought a new, significant and change bearing high potential.
The past 12 months a deal aimed at curbing the Iran nuclear program was in full effect and it is quite obvious how negative the agreement was and is. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) found a second major violation in November of Iran exceeding the 130 metric tons heavy water limits. This is a serious matter and quite consequential.
Iran’s ballistic missile tests, in violation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1929 and 2231, are also sources of grave concern. The recent behavior has been seen again from Tehran in Persian Gulf waters, harassing U.S. Navy ships on two different occasions are all aspects of the belligerence seen from Tehran.
