Holder Announces Programs to Fight Jihad Recruitment…Without Mentioning Jihad

Nor Islam, nor Muslims, nor mosques. via Holder Announces Pilot Programs to Counter ‘Violent Extremism’

Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday announced an effort to counter “violent extremism” by spurring “local engagement” in cities across the country.

He did not offer specifics, but it sounds like he wants law enforcement and community leaders to meet regularly, to share information on people who may have traveled overseas to join ISIS, or on people who may be plotting attacks right here in the U.S.

“Today, I am announcing that the Department of Justice is partnering with the White House, the Department of Homeland Security, and the National Counterterrorism Center to launch a new series of pilot programs in cities across the nation,” Holder said.

He noted that since 2012, U.S. attorneys have held or attended more than 1,700 “engagement-related events or meetings to enhance trust and facilitate communication in their neighborhoods and districts.” The new pilot programs will build on that work, he said.

That work has been almost entirely with Muslims and has obviously been a failure.

Holder also announced that the White House plans to host a “Countering Violent Extremism” summit in October.

Holder did not mention Islam or Muslims, and he used the phrase “violent extremism” to describe the “urgent” threat that the nation faces.

He did mention the new boogeyman being used to distract Americans and further vanquish our liberties, ISIL, in the full video.

Holder said the administration “will work closely with community representatives to develop comprehensive local strategies, to raise awareness about important issues, to share information on best practices, and to expand and improve training in every area of the country.”

We predict this will be a one-way street with Muslims gaining even more access to law enforcement techniques, resources and sharing little to nothing with cops or the FBI. Your tax dollars at waste.

Holder has not only betrayed his oath but he has betrayed all Americans. He should be in jail.

Kerry selection to lead anti-ISIS coalition apologized to murdering Muslims

The last we saw Allen he was bowing down to Hamid Karzai and the Taliban in an Onion-like apology as Muslims were on a murderous rampage.

How’s this going to work out? via Kerry selects retired Marine Gen. John Allen to lead anti-ISIS coalition

Retired Marine Gen. John Allen has been selected to coordinate the international effort against the Islamic State militant group, Secretary of State John Kerry announced Saturday.

“General Allen is a patriot and a remarkable leader,” Kerry said in a statement issued late Saturday. “His extraordinary career in the military speaks for itself.”

Allen’s official title is Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL. ISIL is another name for the Islamic State, which is also known as ISIS.

Allen, who has been serving as a security adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry, is expected to work with the nearly 40 nations around the world who have agreed to join the fight and help them coordinate what each will contribute.

What coalition? The Brits haven’t signed on. Turkey refused. Who’s in? Let the OIC deal with ISIS.

 Oh, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff is either lying or smoking something too:

He thinks an inclusive government to address ISIS’ grievances will make it all go away. Whiskey, tango, foxtrot.

‘Illegal immigration poses greater threat than ISIS’

“…concerns about ISIS overseas pale in comparison to the threat of rampant illegal immigration…”

Coincidentally, ISIS beheadings came to the forefront just as Obama was feeling heat on illegal immigration. via Obama in ‘full stealth mode’ leading up to election.

“I don’t think that (ISIS) is the threat. I think it’s basically the country breaking up internally and failing as the great nation that it was, and I think there is an awful lot of things that need to be done right here in the United States, and not simply in the economy, to bring us all together and make us one people again, that have nothing to do with what’s going on in Iraq,” [Pat] Buchanan said.

Obama announced in an interview Sunday with NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he was planning to delay his unconstitutional executive action on immigration until after the Nov. 4 election. Congress has declined to take up the issue this year.

Ingraham pointed out that Obama is clearly running for cover on the immigration issue. A recent Reuters poll showed 70 percent of Americans, across party lines, believe illegal immigration is “seriously changing the culture, way of life, hurting our wages,” Ingraham said.

“It’s going to change the politics of the nations too,” Buchanan said. “People coming into the country that are very poor and lack education, with increasing dependence on government, that’s going to make it virtually impossible for a conservative party that believes in smaller government to ever gain national power.”

William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration, or ALIPAC, also said he believes concerns about ISIS overseas pale in comparison to the threat of rampant illegal immigration. He did not hear the Buchanan interview but made similar statements Monday to WND.

“ISIS could cut off the heads of journalists once a month for the next five years and that’s not going to destroy America, but Obama’s pumping of illegal immigrants into the country will,” Gheen said.

He said the Obama administration was “going into full stealth mode” to continue its open-borders policy as quietly as possible and may even give the impression to some on the left that it is abandoning its commitment to “comprehensive immigration reform,” regarded by critics as a euphemism for amnesty.  Gheen said the progressives will shout and scream that Obama is backing away from his pledge to grant amnesty by delaying the inevitable, but it is all political theater.

“The only thing I believe that will stop Obama’s next window of completing the dictatorship plans is if there is a massive sweep of conservatives at the election polls in November that outdoes the historic shift of 2010,” Gheen said.

Obama conceded amnesty was unpopular when he told NBC’s Chuck Todd that “the dynamics over the summer have changed” on the issue of illegal immigration.

The delay in Congress has sent the political elites in both parties scurrying for a new strategy to grant legal status to millions of illegal aliens.

Even Republican National Committee spokeswoman Ruth O’Gara chimed in with criticism of Obama for delaying action on amnesty.

“It’s sad but not surprising that President Obama continues to play politics with such a serious and important issue but, for this White House, politics seems to dictates everything,” O’Gara told reporters Sunday. “His empty rhetoric and broken promises are a slap in the face to millions of Hispanics across the country.”

Buchanan was not shocked.

“Well, you’ve got an executive amnesty person right there at the RNC. You’ve probably got an awful lot of them over at the Chamber of Commerce. You’ve got a lot of establishment Republicans that are secretly delighted that the president is going to take care of this and they don’t have to deal with it. And after it’s done they will be delighted that it’s off the table for their party and they can move onto something else.”

There is no issue on which the leadership in both parties “are more out of touch with the American people” than the issue of illegal immigration, Buchanan said.

The result is a changing political landscape. Colorado, for example, used to be a swing state but is now going solidly Democratic in major elections. Continue reading

Obama met with Hizbollah-supporting Christian Patriarchs from Lebanon

Obama finally found some Christians he’d spare some tee time for…Christians who support terror group Hizbollah and oppose Israel. via Christian Patriarch Supporting Hezbollah Says Obama Promised to Protect Lebanon.

Breitbart News reported Thursday, five patriarchs, many who are known Hezbollah supporters, met with Obama and National Security Advisor Susan Rice hours after Cruz was booed during his address at the In Defense of Christians (IDC) summit, a three-day conference funded by a supporter of the Clinton Global Initiative and reportedly dedicated to bringing awareness to the persecution of Christians in the Middle East.

“We want to thank President Obama at this critical moment in history for meeting with the representatives of these Christian communities from the Middle East who face suffering and hardship for professing their religious beliefs,” said IDC president Toufic Baaklini in a press release.

Rai was praised by terrorist group Hezbollah in 2011 when he said, “Everyone says: why is Hezbollah carrying arms? We responded that the international community did not exert pressure on Israel to withdraw from Lebanese territory.”

“As long as there is an occupied Lebanese territory, Hezbollah will maintain that it wants to carry arms in defense of its land,” Rai added. “What will we say to it then? Isn’t it [Hezbollah] right?”

Rai also appeased Hezbollah in May when he travelled to Jerusalem to meet Pope Francis during the pontiff’s visit to the Holy Land.

The Maronite patriarch said he only went to Jerusalem to meet the Pope and would not meet Israeli leaders, stating he was “aware that Israel is an enemy state that is occupying Lebanese territory.”

As noted in U.S. has been conducting secret dialogue with terrorist Hizbullah:

“The United States is sending and receiving messages to Hizbullah through sympathetic third parties,” a source said. “The dialogue has intensified over the last few weeks.”

It seems we now know the “sympathetic third parties.” From the book, ‘Hezbollah’ :

Until 9/11, no terrorist organization had killed more Americans than Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite group: From the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing, which killed 241 Marines, to the 1996 detonation of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 U.S. airmen, Hezbollah’s anti-American curriculum vitae was long and bloody. Today it remains an efficient global terror operation, having executed bombings on four continents, built a presence on six and even branched out to drug trafficking.

 

Obama defends Islam, will fight ISIS by arming those who…defect to ISIS

And sold reporter Steven Sotloff to ISIS. via Obama: Islamic State ‘is not Islamic’.

In his prime-time speech to the nation on the eve of the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, President Obama vowed to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State insurgency in Iraq and Syria with airstrikes and 475 U.S. boots on the ground – but he also made a particular point of declaring that the Islamic State terrorists “are not Islamic.”

“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said, speaking from the state floor of the White House residence. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”

Obama speaking like a true Muslims when he defends Islam and jihad by inserting “innocents.” Performing his obligation of dawah on a national level. By doing so, he enables the ideology of Islam to persist. Of course, according to Muslims, no non-Muslim is innocent. Islamic texts clearly condone the killing of non-innoncents be they Muslim or non-Muslim. Obama knows this all too well. (see The Myth of Islam as a Religion of Peace)

He added, “And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaida’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border.

Gains made after Obama announced his Iraq strategy and then pulled out of Iraq. And started using American taxpayer dollars to fund the failed overthrow of Assad and instead training, funding and arming those who would become ISIS.

It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates.

How does it subjugate them? Islamic sharia law.

ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”

What is its vision? Islamic sharia law. For all. Just like Allah commands.

“First, we will conduct a systematic campaign of airstrikes against these terrorists,” he said. “Working with the Iraqi government, we will expand our efforts beyond protecting our own people and humanitarian missions, so that we’re hitting ISIL targets as Iraqi forces go on offense. …

“Second, we will increase our support to forces fighting these terrorists on the ground. In June, I deployed several hundred American service members to Iraq to assess how we can best support Iraqi Security Forces. Now that those teams have completed their work – and Iraq has formed a government – we will send an additional 475 service members to Iraq. As I have said before, these American forces will not have a combat mission. We will not get dragged into another ground war in Iraq. But they are needed to support Iraqi and Kurdish forces with training, intelligence and equipment. We will also support Iraq’s efforts to stand up National Guard Units to help Sunni communities secure their own freedom from ISIL control.”

ISIS is Sunni. Like al Qaeda, Hamas, CAIR, ISNA, and their funders the Saudis and Qataris.

“[I]n Syria, we have ramped up our military assistance to the Syrian opposition,” he said. “Tonight, I again call on Congress to give us additional authorities and resources to train and equip these fighters. In the fight against ISIL, we cannot rely on an Assad regime that terrorizes its people; a regime that will never regain the legitimacy it has lost. Instead, we must strengthen the opposition as the best counterweight to extremists like ISIL, while pursuing the political solution necessary to solve Syria’s crisis once and for all.”

This hasn’t yet been widely reported however, as noted above, Sotloff family spokesman – who is a Muslim and challenged ISIS – stated on CNN that Obama’s Syrian rebels sold Sotloff to ISIS, via POLITICO:

A spokesman for Steven Sotloff’s family contends the slain American journalist was sold to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant by Syrian rebels and says the Obama administration “could have done more” to save him.

Appearing on CNN Monday evening, Barak Barfi said that his sources in the region have told him one or more of the Syrian rebels sold Sotloff to ISIL for $25,000-$50,000. He referred to them as “so-called moderate rebels, that people want our administration to support,” a jab at lawmakers and political figures — including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona and many others — that have suggested arming the Syrian rebels.

Another unauthorized war declared by Obama while our borders remain wide open.

 

Sotloff Family’s Muslim Spokesperson’s Pathetic Challenge to ISIS’ Jihad Orthodoxy

via Andrew Bostom.

Mr. Barfi’s pathetic invocation of his own crude and uninformed apologetics on Islam, will do nothing to alter the ugly, mainstream doctrinal Islamic rationale for Steven S0tloff’s capture, imprisonment, and beheading.

I just viewed a very brief, but excruciating video “response” by a Satloff family representative addressed to Islamic State (IS) “Caliph” al-Baghdadi, in the wake of Steven Sotloff’s beheading. The spokesman, Barak Barfi, identified as “an Arabic scholar and resident fellow at the New America Foundation,” challenged the IS Caliph to a “debate,” ostensibly on the alleged peaceful teachings of the Koran, vis-à-vis jihad warfare.

Barfi’s Koranic challenge hinged on his invocation—and apparent “personal exegesis”—of Koran 2:190. Here are two standard English translations using pious Muslim sources:

 Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors. [Pickthall]

And fight in the Way of Allah those who fight you, but transgress not the limits. Truly, Allah likes not the transgressors. [Hilali-Khan]

Notwithstanding Mr. Barfi’s panglossian gloss on Koran 2:190, what is the mainstream understanding of this verse, as put forth by Islam’s great Koranic commentators? Reproduced below is the critical conclusion of the gloss on this verse from the seminal Tafsir al-Jalalayn, meaning “The Commentary of the Two Jalals,” named after its two Egyptian authors: Al-Suyuti (1445-1505), a brilliant multidisciplinary scholar; and his mentor Jalalu’d-Din al-Mahalli (1389-1459). The great contemporary Dutch Islamologist Johannes J.G. Jansen notes in his treatise “The Interpretation of the Koran in Modern Egypt,” Tafsir al-Jalalayn remains one of the most popular as well as the most authoritative Koranic commentaries in Egypt.

 This verse [2:190] was abrogated by Surat at-Tawba (the ninth chapter of the Koran [The Repentance], or by Allah’s words in the following ayat (verses)

Chapter 9 (Surat at-Tawba) of the Koran, believed by Muslims to be the final and therefore defining “revelation” of Islam’s most sacred text, is a series of aggressive, open-ended war proclamations against non-Muslims—Jews, Christians, “Magians” (Zoroastrians), and “pagan idolators,” the latter including the vast swath of Hindu, Buddhist, and Animist humanity.

Returning to the verses immediately following Koran 2:190, i.e., 2:191, 2:192, and 2:193, they read:

 And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers. But if they desist, then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrong-doers. [Pickthall]

And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah is worse than killing. And fight not with them at Al-Masjid-al-Haram (the sanctuary at Makkah), unless they (first) fight you there. But if they attack you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. But if they cease, then Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah (Alone). But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.) [Hilali-Khan]

Again, the concluding gloss from Tafsir al-Jalalayn on verse 2:193 is pellucid about the aggressive nature of jihad for the purpose of extirpating disbelief in all but the one true faith—Islam.

 Fight them until there is no more fitna (shirk; [i.e., “unbelief “ in Islam]) in existence and the din (worship) belongs to Allah alone and none but Him is worshipped.

Molla Khosrew (d. 1480) was a celebrated writer and jurist who was appointed the Ottoman Shaykh-al-Islam (leading religious authority) by Sultan Mehmed II in 1469.One of Molla Khosrew’s widely cited legal works reiterated these classical views on the evolution of mandatory, aggressive jihad warfare in the Koran, and corresponding behaviors of Islam’s prophet Muhammad:

 [J]ihad is a fard al-kifaya, that is, that one must begin the fight against the enemy, even when he [the enemy] may not have taken the initiative to fight, because the Prophet . . . early on . . . allowed believers to defend themselves, later, however, he ordered them to take the initiative at certain times of the year, that is, at the end of the haram months, saying, “Kill the idolaters wherever you find them . . .” (Koran 9:5). He finally ordered fighting without limitations, at all times and in all places, saying, “Fight those who do not believe in God, and in the Last Day . . . ” (Koran 9:29); there are also other [similar] verses on the subject. This shows that it is a fard al-kifaya.

Despite Mr. Barfi’s willful denial of this disturbing reality, Steve Sotloff was unfortunately made captive—like innumerable victims before him—because of Islam’s eternal, “sacralized” jihad warfare.


Read it all.

Barfi also threatened the Obama admin: Sotloff Family Spokesperson Accuses Obama Admin Of ‘Inaccurate Statements’ and Using Hostages As ‘Pawns’

“The administration has made a number of inaccurate statements,” Barfi said. “They’ve said that the families have been consistently and regularly informed. That is not true.

“They said that these hostages were moved frequently. We know that for most of the beginning of this part of this year they were stationary.

“We know that the intelligence community and the White House are enmeshed in a larger game of bureaucratic infighting,” Barfi continued. “If there continues to be leaks, the Sotloff family will have to speak out to set the record straight.”

He states Obama’s Syrian rebels sold Sotloff to ISIS, via POLITICO:

A spokesman for Steven Sotloff’s family contends the slain American journalist was sold to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant by Syrian rebels and says the Obama administration “could have done more” to save him.

Appearing on CNN Monday evening, Barak Barfi said that his sources in the region have told him one or more of the Syrian rebels sold Sotloff to ISIL for $25,000-$50,000.

John McCain of Arizona and many others — that have suggested arming the Syrian rebels.

Videos: Men Dressed as ISIS Terrorists Cross into U.S. from Canada, Mexico

The latest from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.

Last month I crossed the border dressed as Osama bin Laden. Today we released a follow-up investigation.

It was so easy to cross into the United States from Mexico, we began asking questions about the Northern border. After all, British intelligence believes more than 500 British citizens have joined ISIS, and British citizens can enter Canada without a visa.

Frankly, we were disheartened by what we found. Watch for yourself.

And watch this: Man Crosses U.S. Border Dressed as ISIS Terrorist, Simulates Beheading

Stunt took place in exact spot where feds say ISIS terror attack is imminent

Infowars reporter Joe Biggs crossed the U.S. border from Mexico dressed as an ISIS militant to illustrate how easy it is for anyone to get into America despite warnings that Islamic State terrorists are plotting to carry out attacks on the homeland from their base in Juarez.
