Authorities in Wuppertal are cracking down on conservative young Islamists who have mounted ‘police’ patrols by drinking and gambling venues in the Ruhr city, officials said on Friday.

Charges of unlawful assembly and use of uniform in public were brought against 11 members of a group trying to enforce aspects of strict Islamic Sharia law in the North Rhine-Westphalia city, a spokeswoman for the Wuppertal police told The Local.

Officers stopped the 11-man group on the street on Wednesday. Some were wearing orange vests bearing the words ‘Shariah Police’, in violation of federal German law, the spokeswoman said.

The group has been stopping young people at local drinking and gambling establishments and urging them to abstain from activities deemed to be ungodly according to Islam.

The Wednesday incident was the first time they had directly violated the law, and no formal complaints had been made against them.

“There is no evidence that they have intimated anybody,” the spokeswoman said, adding that talks were under way between integration authorities and local mosque leaders to address the situation.

Wednesday was also the day the group created its Facebook account, which by Friday had been ‘Liked’ by more than 1,500 visitors.

“Can a vest and a name really cause so much headache?” the group posted on its page after the encounter with police.

“What have all the grumblers now coming out of the woodwork done for wayward youth?” it also asked. “Do you realize how many are buying and consuming drugs? If you are so honest and good, where is your shrieking and outrage?”

Don’t cross the line, warn police

Meanwhile, the Wuppertal police on Friday released a statement pledging to crack down on anyone seeking to take the law into their own hands, especially with any use of intimidation or force.

“The state has an exclusive monopoly on the use of force,” reminded local police chief Birgitta Radermacher. “Any conduct that intimidates, provokes or makes people insecure will not be tolerated. These ‘Sharia Police’ have no legitimacy,” she added.

There had been repeated attempts, especially at night time, by members of the Salafi Islamist community to influence and recruit young people, the statement said.

Police presence in the city centre had been strengthened and citizens were urged to report sightings of the group, which has said it will expand its activities in other towns.

The group reportedly identifies itself with the Salafi movement, an ultra-conservative sub-group within Islam with a strong following in the Middle East. Most of the world’s Salafis are from Qatar, UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Authorities in North Rhine-Westphalia have expressed concern at the implications of ad hoc community ‘patrols’ by its members here.

“In this way they are demonstrating that they do not recognized our law-based state,” an interior ministry spokesperson told the Rheinischer Post newspaper.

The head of the local CDU branch and security expert for the Christian Democrats in the state, Peter Biesenbach, described the situation as an “alarm signal”.


Update: ‘Shariah Police’ ditch vests and change name to Pro Halal – but still trying to enforce sharia law.

Remember too, here in the U.S., CAIR leaders have said they would like to see the day when America is ruled by Islamic sharia law.

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.

Little Mogadishu is just like the real Mogadishu. Full of jihad sympathisers, full of jihad preaching imams, and full of slick suit-and-tie Muslims who lie to law enforcement and the media. More via Latest ISIS Recruit From Minn. Is A 19-Year-Old Woman

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.

Raped and Slaughtered: Muslim Persecution of Christians, April 2014

via Raped and Slaughtered: Muslim Persecution of Christians, April 2014 | Raymond Ibrahim.

From one end of the Islamic world to the other, the abduction and rape of Christian girls at the hands of Muslims—both terrorists and laymen—was a dominant theme in April.

On Easter Sunday Morning, for instance, four Muslim men raped a 7-year-old Christian girl named Sara in a Punjabi village.  Last reported, the child was in an intensive care unit in “critical.” According to Asia News, “the police, instead of arresting the culprits, helped the local clan to kidnap the girl’s father; Iqbal Masih was taken and hidden in a secret place to ‘force the family not to report the story, to reach an agreement with the criminals and to avoid a dispute of a religious background.’”

According to a human rights lawyer involved in the case: “Such cases are frequent: abuse against women and girls by Muslim men are examples of how the minorities in Pakistan live under constant fear of persecution. We believe that many cases of violence go unreported.”  Similarly, a new report appearing in April by the Solidarity and Peace Movement—a coalition of NGOs, associations and institutions including the “Justice and Peace” Commission of the Pakistani Bishops—confirmed that “an estimated 700 cases per year involve Christian women, 300 Hindu girls.” Even so, “the true extent of the problem is probably much bigger, since many cases are not reported.”  (Click here for a better understanding of the extent of this tragedy.)

The biggest story, however, came from Nigeria, where the Islamic terrorist organization known as Boko Haram abducted nearly 300, mostly Christian, teenage schoolgirls.  The group justified its actions in Islamic terms; its leader declared on video that “I abducted your girls. I will sell them on the market, by Allah….There is a market for selling humans. Allah says I should sell.”

The so-called mainstream media, which generally downplays or ignores Boko Haram’s terror campaign, actually reported on this particular atrocity, prompting Western authorities—who are much more accustomed to, and comfortable with, pretending these sorts of things don’t exist—to respond in awkward, hypocritical and, in a word, foolish, ways.

Thus, Secretary of State John Kerry, saying the U.S. had been in touch with Nigeria “from day one” of the crisis, asserted “I think now the complications that have arisen have convinced everybody that there needs to be a greater effort.  And it will begin immediately. I mean, literally, immediately.”

It is not clear whom Kerry was referring to when he said “convinced everybody”—unless he was referring to himself.  After all, there might not have been any need for “greater effort,” the need to act “immediately. I mean, literally, immediately” had Kerry only let the Nigerian government do its job one year ago, when they were waging a particularly strong and successful offensive against Boko Haram in the very same region that the schoolgirls were recently kidnapped.

Back then, in May 2013, soon after Nigerian forces killed 30 Boko Haram members, Reuters reported that “U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry issued a strongly worded statement [to the Nigerian president] saying: “We are … deeply concerned by credible allegations that Nigerian security forces are committing gross human rights violations, which, in turn, only escalate the violence and fuel extremism” from Boko Haram.

As for Kerry’s predecessor, Hillary Clinton, who publicly bemoaned the lot of the kidnapped girls—saying it’s “abominable, it’s criminal, it’s an act of terrorism and it really merits the fullest response possible”—when she was Secretary of State and in a position to help offer “the fullest response possible” she repeatedly refused to designate Boko Haram as a “foreign terrorist organizations,” despite the countless atrocities it had already committed, despite the fact that under her tenure Boko Haram had boasted it would “strike fear into the Christians of the power of Islam by kidnapping their women,” and despite urging from the CIA, FBI, Justice Department, and several congressmen and senators.

Her logic was once voiced by her husband, former U.S. president Bill Clinton.  Back in February 2012, Clinton declared that “inequality” and “poverty” are “what’s fueling all this stuff”—a reference to Boko Haram’s terror—and warned the Nigerian government that “It is almost impossible to cure a problem based on violence with violence.”

The rest of April’s roundup of Muslim persecution of Christians around the world includes (but is not limited to) the following accounts, listed by theme and country alphabetical order, not necessarily according to severity. 

 Muslim Slaughter of Christians 

 Afghanistan: Three Americans were shot and killed at a Kabul hospital funded by an American Christian charity.  The murderer was a policeman employed as a security guard at the hospital.  The Taliban have claimed responsibility for similar attacks this year, but issued no comment.  Those killed were a doctor and a father and son visiting the hospital. “As they were walking out of the hospital, the security guard opened fire on them, killing three and wounding another one,” said the Interior Ministry.  The attack comes amid growing attacks against Christians and Westerners in the country. Three weeks earlier, Associated Press photographer Anja Niedringhaus, 48, was killed and reporter Kathy Gannon, 60, wounded while they were sitting in the back of a car in the east of the country.  Also in March, a gunman shot dead Swedish journalist Nils Horner, 51, outside a restaurant in Kabul.

A friend of mine who I was hospitalized with at Walter Reed posted these images of a man in Houston a Jason’s Deli on west 34th and 290. The unknown man was wearing a black Islamic robe with the Islamic State logo embroidered on the right shoulder.

These terrorist are popping up everywhere and we need to start isolating the issue before we have a major problem. These images should be sent to the FBI in Houston as well, so if you know anyone please send these to them.

Muslim sports HAMAS license plate in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn

hammas

Can’t spell? Tried to fool the DMV? Or was HAMAS already taken?

Long time readers know that Bay Ridge ain’t what it used to be (read Bay Ridge, Brooklyn: ‘Little Palestine’) and is a victim of hijrah. Like ISIS and a growing majority of Muslims across the U.S., they are emboldened and feel no need to hide their support for jihad. HAMMAS license plate with Al Qassm license plate holder and a Palestinkian flag.

via DMV to Revoke ‘HAMMAS’ License Plate Spotted in Brooklyn – NY1.

The DMV says it’s revoking a politically-charged custom license plate that’s been spotted in Brooklyn.

The plate reads HAMMAS, a slight misspelling of Hamas, a group that the U.S. recognizes as a terrorist organization.

It’s on a black Dodge that was parked in Bay Ridge Wednesday and had a Palestinian flag spread across the windshield.

The DMV says the plate should not have been issued.

“We are pulling this plate off the road as patently offensive,” Jackie McGinnis of the state Department of Motor Vehicles said in a statement. “The group represented by the name on the plate is also on the list of entities designated by the U.S. Government as a terrorist organization.”

People NY1 spoke to today were not riled up about it.

“It could be seen as provocative in some parts in Brooklyn if it was parked in certain areas, I guess. It doesn’t really bother me too much,” said one person.

“We are in a country where you’re allowed to do such things,” said another.

“I don’t understand purpose of that plate, I don’t understand purpose of not having that plate, but I want just general peace in the world,” said a third.

DMV regulations say the agency can refuse to issue a license plate it deems obscene, derogatory or offensive.

We read a dozen links on this story and not one even attempted to identify the owner of the vehicle who was quite likely in the store steps away.

 

 

Calgary: 2 more Muslims, brothers, the latest Canadians identified fighting for ISIS

Calgary is like the Minneapolis of Canada – a breeding ground for jihadi fighters (video). Once again we see black converts to Islam joining the jihad and the media completely ignoring the trend.

via Calgary brothers the latest Canadians identified as fighting for ISIS | National Post. h/t Atlas

Two more Calgary men have been identified as having joined the ranks of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) terrorist group in Syria.

The men — brothers Collin and Gregory Gordon — reportedly lived in the same downtown apartment building that was also once home to Damian Clairmont and Salman Ashrafi, both of whom joined terror groups overseas. Clairmont and Ashrafi, as well as Calgarian Farah Shirdon, have all reportedly been killed in conflict.

The Gordon brothers disappeared in late 2012, which is when they are thought to have travelled to Syria, according to a CBC News report.

Collin Gordon was once an accomplished volleyball player, a sports fanatic and music enthusiast. His Twitter posts painted a picture of a fun-loving but thoughtful young man who loved basketball, electronic music and weekends.

But after April 2012, Collin Gordon’s life appeared to change. His Twitter account, which uses his nom de guerre Abu Ibrahim Canadi, was soon filled with excerpts from the Koran. More recently, his tweets spoke of the “miracles” of Jihad and the “incredible” infrastructure of the Islamic State.

On Aug. 21, two days after American photojournalist James Foley was beheaded on video by ISIS terrorists, Collin Gordon tweeted, “10/10. The video of James Foley losing his neck is the perfection of ‘Terrorism.’ ”

Police estimate more than 30 Calgarians have been recruited by foreign terror groups. Nationwide, that number is around 130.

See the map, just north of the U.S. border, and similar cities in the region infested with Islam and sharia and now prime recruiting spots for Islamic jihad.
