Obama Treasury Won’t Certify Boston Bombings an ‘Act of Terrorism’

Why? The jihad wasn’t big enough. via US Treasury: Boston Marathon Bombings Were Not ‘Act of Terrorism’ – Boston.com.

The Boston Marathon bombing attacks have not been certified as an “act of terrorism” by the US Treasury, an important point holding up some insurance payments.

In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Congress passed the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act, which created federally-backed insurance in cases of damage due to terrorism. Some Boston businesses were among those that bought the insurance.

Those purchases became relevant after the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013. Of the 160 companies located near the marathon’s finish line that submitted insurance claims, just 14 percent had purchased terrorism insurance, Insurance Journal reported.

But as of March 2014, many of those that held terrorism insurance had their claims denied. Why? The Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew has not certified the attacks as an act of terrorism for these insurance purposes, a requirement under the wording of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA).

“The Secretary has not determined that there has been an ‘act of terrorism’ under the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act,” a Treasury spokesperson emailed on Thursday.

Part of the reason for that ruling has to do with the amount of monetary damage done by the bombing. Under the federal law’s wording, a destructive act cannot be certified as terrorism if insurance losses total less than $5 million in aggregate. As of March, the state’s largest property and casualty insurers had issued $1.9 million in bomb-related insurance claims, The Boston Globe reported, well below the required $5 million amount. In addition, compensation is not paid out unless the aggregate losses total more than $100 million, according to the statute.

Still, the lack of a payoff hasn’t stopped Bostonians from buying the terrorism insurance since the bombings. As Boston-based brokerage firm William Gallagher Associates told Insurance Journal, about 80 percent of small and midsized customers own terrorism coverage, a jump from 50 percent before the marathon bombings.

Since the marathon wasn’t really a workplace, maybe they’ll classify this as a roadside hazard.

Regardless, another contribution by Muslims in America: terrorism insurance.

Shutting the city down under armed martial law and violating the rights of citizens surely cost more than $5M.

ISIS wannabe Nidal Hasan’s shooting spree at Fort Hood was workplace violence, not Islamic terror. Now it appears that the Boston Marathon bombing wasn’t terror either…

 

Video: George Mason Univ Students Sign Petition Supporting ISIS…on 9/11

via Video: College Students Sign Petition in Support of ISIS | CNS News.

Over the period of about an hour, I stood on the campus of George Mason University in Northern Virginia and asked passing students to sign my petition. The petition was adorned with the ISIS flag above the unambiguous headline, “SUPPORT ISIS.”

Northern Virginia is also known as Virginiastan…where Muslims cheered and celebrated on 9/11/01.

I was able to accumulate 11 signatures and email addresses from students at this institute of higher education. Students who will, one day, go into the world and have real responsibilities. Students who, will one day, have children. Students who probably vote in presidential elections.

This has to make you wonder who these millennials are being taught is the greater threat to mankind.  Terror groups like ISIS or the US military? What are their professors telling them?

I think it’s a fair question.  Particularly, considering the reaction I got and the fact that this video was shot on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

 

Brother of ISIS beheading victim quotes from Koran, pleads for sharia?

It’s almost as if the powers that created ISIS did so to try and create the illusion of some non-existent version of moderate Islam, while submitting the rest of us. Yet no Muslim group has called for reforming the Koran or ridding it of it’s violent verses. There wouldn’t be much left if they did. via Brother of ISIS beheading victim David Haines reads from Koran as he pleads for society to ‘repel evil with something better’ | Mail Online.

The brother of beheaded aid worker David Haines has read from the Koran in an impassioned plea for the world to ‘repel evil with something better’.

Mike Haines said extremism, not Islam, was to blame for the on-camera butchering of his brother, a married 44-year-old with two children who devoted his life to helping victims of war.

Speaking to the BBC, Mr Haines said: ‘My first reaction could be one of hatred. But my brother’s life wasn’t about hatred. It was about love for all men.

‘Radicalisation remains the biggest threat to the wholesale safety of every person in the world. Increasingly we are seeing more and more radicalisation in every walk of life.

‘It is not a race, religion or political issue – it is a human issue and it is in our everyday lives.

‘I have become aware of a number of verses in the Koran that I feel are particularly apt at this time, if I may.

‘”‘Since good and evil cannot be equal, repel thou evil with something that is better.”‘

Quoting from the Koran seeking to replace all things unIslamic? That can only mean one thing: sharia.

The quote comes from Chapter 41, Verse 34 of the Koran.

One only read the verses leading up to verse 34 to add a little context, shall we?

041.027
YUSUFALI: But We will certainly give the Unbelievers a taste of a severe Penalty, and We will requite them for the worst of their deeds.
PICKTHAL: But verily We shall cause those who disbelieve to taste an awful doom, and verily We shall requite them the worst of what they used to do.
SHAKIR: Therefore We will most certainly make those who disbelieve taste a severe punishment, and We will most certainly reward them for the evil deeds they used to do.

041.028
YUSUFALI:Such is the requital of the enemies of Allah,- the Fire: therein will be for them the Eternal Home: a (fit) requital, for that they were wont to reject Our Signs.
PICKTHAL: That is the reward of Allah’s enemies: the Fire. Therein is their immortal home, payment forasmuch as they denied Our revelations.
SHAKIR: That is the reward of the enemies of Allah– the fire; for them therein shall be the house of long abiding; a reward for their denying Our communications.

041.029
YUSUFALI: And the Unbelievers will say: “Our Lord! Show us those, among Jinns and men, who misled us: We shall crush them beneath our feet, so that they become the vilest (before all).”
PICKTHAL: And those who disbelieve will say: Our Lord! Show us those who beguiled us of the jinn and humankind. We will place them underneath our feet that they may be among the nethermost.
SHAKIR: And those who disbelieve will say: Our Lord! show us those who led us astray from among the jinn and the men that we may trample them under our feet so that they may be of the lowest.

041.030
YUSUFALI: In the case of those who say, “Our Lord is Allah”, and, further, stand straight and steadfast, the angels descend on them (from time to time): “Fear ye not!” (they suggest), “Nor grieve! but receive the Glad Tidings of the Garden (of Bliss), the which ye were promised!
PICKTHAL: Lo! those who say: Our Lord is Allah, and afterward are upright, the angels descend upon them, saying: Fear not nor grieve, but hear good tidings of the paradise which ye are promised.
SHAKIR: (As for) those who say: Our Lord is Allah, then continue in the right way, the angels descend upon them, saying: Fear not, nor be grieved, and receive good news of the garden which you were promised.

041.031
YUSUFALI: “We are your protectors in this life and in the Hereafter: therein shall ye have all that your souls shall desire; therein shall ye have all that ye ask for!-
PICKTHAL: We are your protecting friends in the life of the world and in the Hereafter. There ye will have (all) that your souls desire, and there ye will have (all) for which ye pray.
SHAKIR: We are your guardians in this world’s life and in the hereafter, and you shall have therein what your souls desire and you shall have therein what you ask for:

041.032
YUSUFALI: “A hospitable gift from one Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful!”
PICKTHAL: A gift of welcome from One Forgiving, Merciful.
SHAKIR: A provision from the Forgiving, the Merciful.

041.033
YUSUFALI: Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, “I am of those who bow in Islam”?

The Koran describes ISIS precisely. Yet the delusional ramble on:

He added: ‘The Muslim faith is not to blame for Isil [Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant], nor is it the fault of people of Middle Eastern descent.

‘The attraction of complete control and the use of terror as an implement of operational control has a widepsread appeal to many disenfranchised people throughout society, as you can see by the amount of foreign nationals – not just British – that are fighting for Isil.

British PM David Cameron joined in the dhimmitude:

“They boast of their brutality. They [ISIS] claim to do this in the name of Islam. That is nonsense. Islam is a religion of peace,” he said. “They are not Muslims. They are monsters. They make no secret of their desire to do as much harm not just in the Middle East, but to any countries or peoples who seek to stand in their way or dare to stand for values they disagree with.”

“The problem will merely get worse, as it has done over recent months, not just for us, but for Europe and for the world,” he said. “We cannot ignore this threat to our security and that of our allies. There is no option of keeping our heads down that would make us safe. We have to confront this menace.”

As the pot calls the kettle black, Brits should recognize they have no chance and it will only get much worse for them with that the heads down leadership of David Cameron who refuses to acknowledge that Islam is destroying the UK and beheading its citizens.

Muslim group ISIS claims to behead British aid worker David Haines (video)

via ISIS executes British aid worker David Haines – CNN.com.

(CNN) — British aid worker David Haines has been executed by ISIS militants, according to a video posted Saturday to a website associated with the group, making him the third Western captive to be killed by the Islamist extremist group in recent weeks.

The ISIS video post showing Haines’ beheading called his execution “a message to the allies of America.”

It is produced very similarly to the videos that showed the executions of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, the last of which included Haines and the threat that he’d be killed next.

The new video pictures a masked ISIS militant placing his hand on another captive, whom he identified as Alan Henning, a British citizen.

Suddenly, after years of refusing to, Youtube is removing ISIS videos as quick as they go up. The anti-jihad bloggers worked for years to have jihadi recruiting and beheading videos removed to no avail. That said, the full video is all over the web on jihadi sites. The ISIS actor puts the knife to Haines neck and the video cuts away. It returns to show the body with a head on it.

Any recording professionals out there? Is it possible to record audio so clearly in the middle of a desert as if it sounded like it was recorded in a studio with a quality microphone?

Inside The Online World Of The Women Of ISIS

An interesting look into the use of social media by young women being recruited to and recruiting other young Western girls to jihad. This article identifies at least two more American girls gone to jihad. via Ellie Hall, Inside The Chilling Online World Of The Women Of ISIS.

Conversations between young women who claim to be ISIS members living in Syria provide a disturbing insight into the everyday lives of female militants.

The women of ISIS appear to have established networks across social media platforms, which they use to connect with one another and recruit other women.

Interested parties are directed to online guides with step-by-step instructions on how to get to ISIS-controlled territory — including advice on how to deceive Turkish customs agents.

Sharia law is strictly enforced, according to the women.

And it appears from the women’s posts as if some non-Muslim women are kept as slaves.

Minnesota: At least three young Muslim women left U.S. to aid ISIS jihadis

At least three should never be allowed to return to the U.S. And at least one mosque shut down. via At least three young Minnesota women have traveled to Syria to aid ISIS jihidis | Mail Online.

At least three young Minnesota women are now believed to have traveled to Syria to give aid to the ISIS terror group responsible for the brutal beheadings of American journalists, MailOnline has learned.

The trio left some three weeks ago, Omar Jamal, a leader of the Somali community in the state capital, St. Paul, tells MailOnline. They said they intended to become nurses tending to fighters injured in ISIS’ violent surge in Syria and Iraq.

The news comes as 19-year-old suburban Denver woman Shannon Conley who federal authorities say intended to wage jihad has pleaded guilty to trying to help the Islamic State militant group in Syria.

The case of one of the Minnesota girls, a 19-year-old, has already been widely reported, after the girl’s family called the FBI, but Jamal said he believes at least two more girls have gone to the Middle East hotspot.

‘Their identity is not known because their families have not contacted the authorities,’ said Jamal. ‘They have gone to Syria but as there are no official reports of them we do not know who they are.’

The shocking new revelation comes as MailOnline can reveal that the FBI has subpoenaed the 19-year-old girl’s family to appear before a Grand Jury later this month, as authorities attempt to discover who bought her ticket, gave her money and provided her with a false passport.

There is no suggestion that the family is under criminal investigation, said one law enforcement source with knowledge of the subpoena.

‘They are looking for evidence on exactly what the family knows,’ said the source. Included in the subpoena is a demand for cell phone records as the girl called her brother from Turkey and later, after she crossed the border, from Syria.

However, Jamal said the girl’s family is worried about what may happen at the Grand Jury hearing and feels ‘betrayed’ by the FBI’s action as it believed it had done the right thing by contacting authorities in the first place while the families of the two unidentified girls do not have to appear.

FBI’s Minnesota spokesman Kyle Loven told MailOnline he ‘is not in a position to comment’ on the subpoena because the case of the missing girl is an ongoing investigation. ‘I cannot confirm and will not deny its existence,’ he said.

The teen, who turns 20 next month, was about to start nursing classes at St. Paul College but decided to leave to give aid to wounded fighters. Jamal said he is sure she will not be placed into front line battle but it is possible she would be married off to one of the ISIS fighters.

She is the middle of five children brought up by a single Somali mother, living off St. Paul’s Selby Avenue.

She had recently started taking classes at al-Farook Youth and Family Center in the Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington, said Bob Fletcher, a former sheriff in St. Paul, who has dedicated himself to helping the Twin Cities’ large Somali community since being defeated in an election in 2010.

Al-Farook has been at the center of claims that Amir Meshal, an alleged recruiter for ISIS, had been talking to youngsters on its site. The mosque kicked the New Jersey-born man off campus, but now the Minneapolis-St. Paul Fox TV station has raised questions of whether Meshal is actually an FBI mole rather than an ISIS recruiter.

‘What we don’t know is whether al-Farook is part of the problem or part of the solution right now,’ said Jamal. ‘And who is Amir Meschal? Where did he come from? Did he recruit these girls?’

Meshal sued the FBI in federal court in 2009 claiming he was tortured and held for four months in three different countries after being apprehended crossing the Somali border into Kenya.

The young woman who is known to have gone to Syria traveled on a ‘borrowed’ passport. However the passport holder did not report it was missing until the girl had already entered Syria, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported.

In the family’s only comments, a male relative asked in the Star-Tribune: ‘How many more kids have to die before we do something about it?

‘Those animals who are taking our children are what we’re concerned about. We love this country more than anything else. I love America. We don’t want to see anything bad happen here. This is the most dangerous thing happening to this country.’

Islamophobe.

Despite the violent imagery, Fletcher, the retired sheriff, said recruitment to ISIS is appealing to young Muslims because they get the feeling they are in at the start of something new, an Islamic state, hat they believe can offer them a future they fail to see in America.

‘Many Somalis are struggling as their transition to the American life has been difficult. They have been here a shorter time than most immigrants and their arrival coincided with a downturn in the economy so many have not been able to find work.

You know who’s not struggling? The Catholic Charities and other organizations who make tens of millions of dollars importing jihad and sharia supporters, knowing there are no jobs and no future for most of them.

‘Many also came here without fathers, who had either been killed in the war or did not make the trip, so on occasion the extremist religious leader becomes their father-figure.’

Extremist religious leaders in America? Where? Again, shut the mosque down. Deport the imams.

He said that going to be a nurse in an ISIS stronghold like Raqqa in northern Syria is also attractive because it is portrayed as relatively stable away from the frontline battle and a place where volunteers can start to build the infrastructure of a new city.

 

Minnesota: Muslim Teen Girl from St. Paul Left to Join ISIS

As we told you earlier in the week in this post: Dozen Muslims from Twin Cities fighting with ISIS, teen girl recruited last week

via St. Paul Woman Leaves Minnesota to Fight for ISIS | KSTP TV – Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The latest person to leave Minnesota and travel to Syria to fight for ISIS is a 19-year-old Somali woman who had been living in St. Paul. It’s a troubling development considering recruiting in Somali communities has been limited to men in the past. Now, women appear to be the new targets.

Kyle Loven with the FBI in Minnesota says the Bureau is working closely with the local Somali community to prevent this from happening.

“We are very actively engaged within the Somali community,” Loven said. “We’re engaged with religious leaders. We’re engaged with community leaders, and we’re engaged with concerned members of the public who are abhorred by what they see with respect to their young people and want to put a stop to it.”

The FBI says their investigation is ongoing, and they continue to look for connections between the young people on the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul and ISIS in Syria. The community is trying to help.

The FBI is failing Americans. They claimed to have halted jihad recruiting in Minnesota years ago, but the jihadi pipeline appears stronger than ever.

Somali-American leaders say they know of at least two other young women who have also left, and they believe at least 15 Minnesotans are among at least 100 Americans who have joined ISIS from around the world.

No one is quite sure when the 19-year-old woman left Minnesota for Syria. Two weeks ago distraught family members reached out to community activist Abdi Bihi.

“They told me they were missing a young girl for about a week, and that young girl made a call to them from, allegedly, Egypt,” Bihi said.

The next night, the family got another call.

“They told me that she called from Syria,” Bihi said. “She basically told them that she’s going to help the wounded in the war as a nurse.”

Nurse, jihadist, sex slave?

The family members have reported what they know to the FBI, but that they have no idea when or how she was recruited.

Bihi said someone on the ground in Minnesota is giving these young people money.

“Somebody in here is buying a ticket these children cannot afford,” Bihi said. “They do not know where Syria is, someone is guiding them.”

Bihi believes ISIS is luring some recruits with a sophisticated media campaign.

That campaign is led by a well-educated affluent Muslim from Boston.

The training went on for four nights in both downtowns, scaring and angering more than a few neighbors. The helicopters came without warning, and under cover of darkness.

“There were a lot of black choppers running around the city. It was like an action movie. Nobody knew what was going on,” said Marcus Naramore, who lives in downtown Minneapolis.

Several military helicopters spent hours slicing and dicing their way through the Minneapolis and St. Paul skylines.

The training exercises raised questions from all corners. That now includes the Minneapolis city council.

“I think the one question that came out of it was, ‘Why didn’t we know?'” said Minneapolis council member Blong Yang, the chair of the public safety committee.

It’s no coincidence that the St. Paul-Minneapolis area is ground zero for Islamic jihad recruitment in the U.S.

Obama has yet to ban Muslim jihadis from returning to the U.S.

In fact, they won’t even arrest Muslims who admit attending jihad training camps, as the link below details.

Fox 9 has learned some of the travelers to Syria for ISIS had occasionally attended Al-Farooq, including a 19-year old St. Paul girl who left for Syria two weeks ago.
