Soon they’ll be allies. Obama says the Taliban must reject al Qaeda as Obama gives money and weapons to al Qaeda in Syria. via U.S., Taliban to start peace talks in Qatar within days – ContraCostaTimes.com.
KABUL, Afghanistan — In a major breakthrough, the Taliban and the U.S. announced Tuesday that they will hold talks on finding a political solution to ending nearly 12 years of war in Afghanistan as the Islamic militant movement opened an office in Qatar.
President Barack Obama said the opening of the Taliban political office in Doha is an important first step toward reconciliation between the Taliban and Afghanistan’s government. But he says the process won’t be quick or easy and predicts there will be bumps along the way.
Obama says the Taliban still must denounce al-Qaida. He’s praising Afghan President Hamid Karzai for taking a courageous step by sending representatives to Qatar to discuss peace with the Taliban.
Obama spoke after meeting with French President Francois Hollande at the G-8 summit in Northern Ireland.
The decision to meet with the Taliban was a reversal of months of failed efforts to start peace talks while Taliban militants intensified a campaign targeting urban centers and government installations.
In Doha, Taliban spokesman Mohammad Naim said the group opposes the use of Afghan soil to threaten other countries and supports the negotiating process, two key demands of both the U.S. and Afghan governments before talks could begin. He made the statement shortly after the deputy foreign minister of Qatar said the Emir of the gulf state had given the go ahead for the office to open.
Naim said the Taliban are willing to use all legal means to end what they called the occupation of Afghanistan.
He thanked the leader of Qatar, Sheik Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani for allowing them to open the office.
The Obama administration officials say the U.S. and Taliban representatives will hold bilateral meetings, and Karzai’s High Peace Council is expected to follow up with its own talks a few days later.
The administration officials acknowledged the process will be “complex, long and messy” because of the ongoing level of distrust between the parties.
PS: By negotiate Obama means give millions of US taxpayer dollars to the Taliban and get nothing in return.

This happened two weeks but all we’ve heard about is some non-existent backlash Muslims are experiencing because of the previous beheading by Muslims in the UK. via Man, 20, appears in court accused of beheading 18-year-old woman then attacking five people while he was being treated in hospital | Mail Online.
A 20-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a young woman who was beheaded in a knife attack.
Aras Hussein appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court today accused of murdering Reema Ramzan, 18.
Miss Ramzan, who was from the Darnall area of Sheffield, died on June 4 following an incident at a property on Herries Road, in the city.
Detectives said she suffered a severe knife attack resulting in fatal injuries, including the severing of her head.
Hussein, of Sheffield, is also charged with assaulting five people at Sheffield’s Northern General Hospital, where he was taken following his arrest by police.
He stood in the glass-fronted dock today flanked by two uniformed police officers.
Sporting full beard and short, dark hair, he wore a navy blue T-shirt and spoke only to confirm his personal details and that he understood the charge.
Hussein was remanded in custody following a 10 minute hearing and told he will appear again a Sheffield Crown Court on Thursday.
Miss Ramzan’s family issued a statement through police today.

Further details cannot be disclosed for legal reasons as the cases are still to come to court, however the investigations contain chilling echoes of high- profile prosecutions south of the Border.
In another, utterly appalling example of child abuse, two 13-year-old Scots girls were groomed and raped by a network of “numerous” paedophiles across Britain.
This operation resulted in 37 arrests and the identification of 108 further potential victims and perpetrators. Again, all of those involved are still awaiting trial.
The details of the crackdown were revealed by Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Graham to a Holyrood inquiry into the scale of child abuse. Concern is growing that the problem has been grossly underestimated for years, with police and prosecutors failing to take victims seriously.
Senior officers also fear the involvement of ethnic minority offenders in child sexual exploitation (CSE) will lead to “significant community tension”.
Mr Graham said: “In two large scale CSE investigations in Scotland a significant proportion of the identified perpetrators were from ethnic minority communities. It is not possible to draw conclusions from this relatively small dataset and more accurate data and wider research is required.
“It is acknowledged extremist groups have attempted to associate CSE with wider immigration issues and this has the potential for significant unrest.”
However, a police source added: “There are groups of foreign nationals involved in this and maybe respect for women isn’t seen as being a high priority in their country of origin.”

Last month, seven people found trespassing near “critical infrastructure” — a water reservoir just outside of Boston that serves the city’s metro area and much of the eastern part of the state — were cleared of terrorist suspicions. This week, the clerk magistrate decided not to press charges against the individuals, but the Massachusetts State Police are appealing this decision.
In mid-May, five men and two women said to be “chemical engineers” and “recent graduates” were found trespassing on the Quabbin Reservoir property after dark, sparking a statewide terror alert, especially after the attacks on the Boston Marathon that had happened the month prior.
The group, which included adults from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore, were detained by authorities, interviewed and later released. After an investigation, it was decided they were not engaging or planning to engage in criminal or terrorist activity.
Although trespassing in and of itself was against the law, the clerk magistrate decided this week not to issue criminal complaints against those in the group, which had been summoned to Belchertown district court, according to The Republican. But the state police are appealing the decision because the trespassing took place at a “critical infrastructure key resource site,” Massachusetts State Police Spokesman David Procopio told The Republican.
“In our view, the clerk’s decision was contrary to our past understanding with the court, specifically, that the continuance without criminal complaints (which is how minor motor vehicle matters are generally handled) is not the resolution in cases involving violations of the Quabbin watershed rules. This has been the practice in recent years,” Procopio said.
To be clear, the appeal doesn’t seem to be pushing for terror charges, but rather trespassing ones. As of right now, the appeal is waiting judicial review, Procopio told The Republican. TheBlaze contacted the state police department for a comment but did not hear back in time for this posting.
With no criminal charges yet, the names of the trespassers remain undisclosed.
No charges and can’t release names (so alternative media can do what the FBI and big media won’t) of foreign Muslims who trespass at a critical infrastructure site just weeks after the Boston Marathon jihad? Is this what it’s come to in the U.S.?

“…the country is less safe when we allow radical Muslim organizations to tell the FBI how to train its agents and do its job.”
by Tom Fitton
Judicial Watch recently released hundreds of pages of FBI memos and other documents revealing that, in 2012, the agency purged its anti-terrorism training curricula of material determined by an undisclosed group of “Subject Matter Experts” (SME) to be “offensive” to Muslims. The excised material included references linking the Muslim Brotherhood to terrorism, tying al Qaeda to the 1993 World Trade Center and Khobar Towers bombings, and suggesting that “young male immigrants of Middle Eastern appearance … may fit the terrorist profile best.”
These discoveries all stem from our investigation of a February 8, 2012, meeting between FBI Director Robert Mueller and various Islamic organizations. During the meeting, Mueller reportedly assured the Islamic groups in attendance that the agency had ordered the removal of presentations and curricula on Islam from FBI offices around the country that were deemed “offensive.”
As reported by NPR: “The FBI has completed a review of offensive training material and has purged 876 pages and 392 presentations, according to a briefing provided to lawmakers.”
To get the full story on the FBI’s attempts to placate Muslims, perhaps to the detriment of our national security, we filed a FOIA request on March 7, 2012. Specifically, we sought access to records detailing the meeting as well as “any and all records setting criteria or guidelines for FBI curricula on Islam or records identifying potentially offensive material within the FBI curricula on Islam.” We also asked for records detailing the directives to withdraw FBI presentations and curricula on Islam.
Predictably, the agency stonewalled, forcing JW to file a lawsuit on July 18, 2012. Six months later, January 15, 2013 we received our first batch of documents, followed by a second grouping on April 16, 2013. And here’s what we discovered regarding the reasons given by the FBI’s SME for purging “offensive” training documents:
Read it all.
Keep in mind, the recent Islamic event in Tennessee telling Americans their 1st Amendment rights would be violated and they would be jailed if they offended Muslims was put on by the FBI lead who approved Muslim-led purge of FBI training.
But he nor anyone at the FBI would release names of “Islamic experts” who purged terror training materials.
Islamic infiltration coupled with dhimmitude results not only in dead Americans but embarrassing videos like this: FBI Director Unaware Boston Mosque Founded by al Qaeda Funder.

A reader notified us of this via ASU:
Iyad bin Amin Madani ’69 B.S. was elected Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
More via Iyad bin Amin Madani – Wikipedia
Iyad bin Amin Madani (born April 1946) is a Saudi public figure who served in different cabinet posts. In addition, he is elected as the secretary general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. He will be the first Saudi official to hold his position.
Madani was born in Mecca in April 1946. He holds a bachelor’s degree in production administration, which he obtained from Arizona State University.
Madani was awarded by the Malaysian government the prize, the Darjah Kebesaran Panglima Setia Mahkota (Knight of the Most Distinguished Order of Crown), in March 2009 due to his efforts in reinforcing solidarity of Muslim Ummah…
His appointment was officially announced after the 12th Summit of the OIC in Cairo on 8 February 2013. Madani’s term as secretary general of OIC will be effective in January 2014.
Those Saudi student visas are so beneficial to the United States. More on the infamous OIC: OIC Ramps Up ‘Islamophobia’ Campaign
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has long been on the forefront of the Islamist mission to establish the equivalent of Islamic blasphemy laws in the West. Now, during its 12th Islamic Summit held in Cairo February 7-8, 2013, the OIC set forth new and creative ways to silence, and ultimately criminalize criticism of Islam.
The OIC is a 57-member state organization that claims to represent 1.5 billion Muslims around the globe. As the second largest international organization in the world, behind only the UN, and as the largest Islamic organization in the world, it is obviously quite powerful. Though it is arguably the largest voting block in the UN, most people have never heard of it.
One of the OIC’s primary aims for at least the last fourteen years has been the international criminalization of speech that is critical of any Islam-related topic, including Islamic terrorism, Islamic persecution of religious minorities and human rights violations committed in the name of Islam.
Since 1999, the OIC has set forth UN resolutions that would “combat defamation of religions.” These resolutions condemned criticism of religion, but in the OIC’s interpretation, it applied only to Islam. True statements of fact constituted no exception.
The OIC is fastidiously working on the creation of legal instruments to address and combat “Islamophobia.” Renewing its commitment to mobilize the West to comply with Islamic blasphemy laws, the OIC vowed to push for nation states to enact laws that will criminalize the “denigration of religions” during in its next Istanbul conference, anticipated to take place this June.
At the Summit, OIC members also unanimously elected Iyad Madani to the post of OIC Secretary General. His term is to commence in 2014 when current Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu’s term expires. This is the first time that the OIC will be headed by a Saudi.
Though the current OIC regime is comprised of sticklers for Islamic blasphemy laws and staunch advocates for the obliteration of Israel, it is likely that the OIC will become even more extreme under Madani.
Fresh with U.S. connections.
Five years ago, NYPD Sergeant Haytham Khalil was indicted for illegally accessing the FBI criminal records and terrorism database on behalf of a friend in a child custody dispute. He pleaded guilty in 2009.
Today, Khalil not only is still with the police department, despite his conviction, but he is an integrity control officer in a Brooklyn precinct.
In sum, an officer convicted of abusing his position to access confidential information for a private purpose is now monitoring whether other officers are following the rules.
We asked the NYPD’s public information office for comment, but received no response.
The National Crime Information Center maintains a database filled with sensitive information used by law enforcement agencies across the country in investigations.
Khalil, 37, of Brooklyn was convicted of using another sergeant’s password to access the NCIC database and retrieved an entry which identified an individual as being on the terrorist watch list. He then sent that document to a female friend in a child custody dispute in Canada. That dispute was with a man who was being monitored by the feds. The friend then filed the document in court records in Canada.
Khalil pleaded to accessing a computer beyond his authority, a misdemeanor. He faced a maximum of one year in jail and a $100,000 fine. He was sentenced in 2009 to one year probation and a $500 fine.
Under state law, if he had pleaded guilty to a felony, he would have been fired. But since he pleaded to a misdemeanor, the NYPD could decide to keep him on the job.
From the 2009 DOJ presser (pdf):
KHALIL exceeded his authorization by accessing the E-Justice system through an NYPD computer. KHALIL, who did not have an E-Justice account, used another NYPD officer’s E-Justice account and obtained an NCIC document identifying an individualas being on a terrorist watch list. KHALIL then forwarded the NCIC document to an acquaintance involved in a custody dispute in Canada.
A 2008 Gothamist article:
A Canadian woman in a custody battle in her home country tried to pull the ultimate trump card in the fight for her children: submitting documents that their father was on a terrorist watch list here in the US. What she didn’t think of was that authorities might be curious to know just where she got the terrorist list she presented from. It also might have helped if she had double-checked that her friend who had passed along that information from the National Crime Information Center computers actually had proper access to it in the first place. Instead federal authorities have arrested her friend, Haytham Khalil–an eight-year NYPD vet–for hacking into e-Justice, the state database where he illegally obtained the terrorist list. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police tipped off the NYPD who then traced the computer Khalil had used. Khalil got into to the list by asking a departing officer who had access to it for his password. That officer was not named but has been disciplined, but Khalil was suspended without pay and faces a fine of up to $100,000.
The probe revealed that Khalil regularly had an officer in the Patrol Borough Manhattan South investigations unit conduct searches for him on the NYPD computer, authorities said. When the officer left the unit in September 2007, Khalil called him to ask for his password to the NCIC system, they said.
He’s now an “Integrity” Officer.
DHS allowed a Muslim to illegally access a terror database as well and has done nothing to revoke his access or charge him. Re-read that at the links below:
