Video shows largest al Qaeda meeting in years

While the U.S. was busy stealing a rancher’s cattle, al Qaeda was meeting and plotting.

via Video shows large al Qaeda meeting in Yemen – CNN.com.

(CNN) — A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike.

U.S. officials won’t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States.

In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda’s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has said he wants to attack the United States. But in the video, he looks unconcerned that he could be hit by an American drone.

The video started appearing on jihadist websites recently, drawing the attention of U.S. officials and global terrorism experts. U.S. officials say they believe it’s authentic.

In a speech to the group, al-Wuhayshi makes it clear that he’s going after the United States, saying “We must eliminate the cross. … The bearer of the cross is America!”

U.S. officials believe the highly produced video is recent. With some fighters faces blurred, there is worry it signals a new round of plotting.

“The U.S. intelligence community should be surprised that such a large group of al Qaeda assembled together, including the leadership, and somehow they didn’t notice,” said Peter Bergen, CNN national security analyst.

“His message to the United States,” Cruickshank said, “was very much the same as (former al Qaeda leader Osama) bin Laden’s: ‘We’re coming after you.’ “

 


Muslims bomb Nigerian bus station killing 71; then abduct 100 schoolgirls

via Bomb attack kills 71 at bus station near Nigeria capital – The Times of India.

ABUJA: Seventy-one people died in a bomb blast in a packed bus station in Nigeria’s capital Abuja on Monday — the deadliest attack yet to strike the city — with the president blaming the explosion on Boko Haram Islamists.

The bomb, which also injured 124 people, rocked the Nyanya station on Abuja’s southern outskirts at 6:45 am (0545 GMT) as it was filled with morning commuters, leaving body parts scattered across the terminal and destroying dozens of vehicles.

Previously, much of the recent violence by the Boko Haram insurgency has been in the remote northeast, though some have targeted the central capital.

This major bombing, just a few kilometres (miles) from the seat of government, will raise further doubts about Nigeria’s ability to contain the Islamist threat it is battling.

The explosion “emanated from a vehicle” parked within the station, said Charles Otegbade, head of search and rescue at the National Emergency Management Agency.

National police spokesman Frank Mba put the toll at 71 dead and 124 injured. The wounded were being treated in area hospitals.

Visiting the site, President Goodluck Jonathan vowed that Nigeria would overcome the brutal insurgency being waged by Boko Haram, blamed for killing thousands across the north and centre of the country since 2009.

“The issue of Boko Haram is quite an ugly history within this period of our own development,” Jonathan said. “But we will get over it… The issue of Boko Haram is temporary.”

The Islamists, who say they want to create a strict Islamic state in northern Nigeria, have previously set off bombs in and around the capital, including a 2011 car bombing at the United Nations headquarters that killed at least 26 people.

Monday’s explosions at the bus station left a hole roughly 1.2 metres (four feet) deep and spread debris across the compound, an AFP reporter and witnesses said.

“I saw bodies taken away in open trucks,” said witness Yakubu Mohammed, describing grisly remains that “were burnt and in pieces”.

Experts warn that force alone cannot stem the bloodshed and have called for a major outreach to dejected and deeply impoverished youths from the north who fill Boko Haram’s ranks.

 Goodluck and the so-called experts are delusional. The Islamic terror for a sharia state continued via BBC News – Nigeria unrest: Gunmen abduct ‘about 100 schoolgirls’.

Around 100 girls are thought to have been abducted in an attack on a school in north-east Nigeria, officials say.

Gunmen reportedly arrived at the school in Chibok, Borno state, late last night, and ordered the hostel’s teenage residents on to lorries.

The attackers are believed to be from the Islamist group, Boko Haram, whose militants frequently target schools.

On Monday, bombings blamed on the group killed more than 70 people in the capital, Abuja.

Boko Haram, whose name means “Western education is forbidden” in the local Hausa language, has been waging an armed campaign for an Islamic state in northern Nigeria.

“Many girls were abducted by the rampaging gunmen who stormed the school in a convoy of vehicles,” AFP news agency quotes Emmanuel Sam, an education official in Chibok, as saying.

 

DC: Saudi’s to open dawah center in U.S.

via Saudi Arabia readies to open culture hall in U.S. – Al Arabiya News.

Saudi Arabia’s Cultural Mission in the United States is readying to inaugurate the King Abdullah Cultural Hall in Washington DC, which aims to bridge the cultural divide by displaying exhibits on Saudi culture.

Set to open its doors at the end of May, the Cultural Hall is being billed as a touristic and cultural destination, which will inform visitors about Saudi history, culture and heritage, according to Dr. Mody Alkhalaf, assistant attaché for Cultural and Social Affairs at the Cultural Mission.

Meanwhile, the Saudi Cultural Attaché to the U.S. Mohammad Aleissa said the exhibits will show “our prosperous present and the kingdom’s advanced status among nations, something that needs to be shown to the world.”

Regarding why Washington DC was chosen as the home of the project, Aleissa said that the city represents “a crossroad for international civilizations.”

The official added that Saudi Arabia is an important country about which some people wish to learn more, “that is why we are aiming to make this hall one of the most prestigious cultural landmarks,” he said.

Alkhalaf noted that common questions included those related to the Islamic pilgrimage of hajj, adding that the hall would address those queries by featuring a virtual tour of hajj and would include information on the meaning behind this religious obligation.

Hirsi Ali: Here’s What I Would Have Said at Brandeis

via Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Here’s What I Would Have Said at Brandeis – WSJ.com.

On Tuesday, after protests by students, faculty and outside groups, Brandeis University revoked its invitation to Ayaan Hirsi Ali to receive an honorary degree at its commencement ceremonies in May. The protesters accused Ms. Hirsi Ali, an advocate for the rights of women and girls, of being “Islamophobic.” Here is an abridged version of the remarks she planned to deliver.

One year ago, the city and suburbs of Boston were still in mourning. Families who only weeks earlier had children and siblings to hug were left with only photographs and memories. Still others were hovering over bedsides, watching as young men, women, and children endured painful surgeries and permanent disfiguration. All because two brothers, radicalized by jihadist websites, decided to place homemade bombs in backpacks near the finish line of one of the most prominent events in American sports, the Boston Marathon.Ayaan_Hirsi_Ali-book

All of you in the Class of 2014 will never forget that day and the days that followed. You will never forget when you heard the news, where you were, or what you were doing. And when you return here, 10, 15 or 25 years from now, you will be reminded of it. The bombs exploded just 10 miles from this campus.

I read an article recently that said many adults don’t remember much from before the age of 8. That means some of your earliest childhood memories may well be of that September morning simply known as “9/11.”

You deserve better memories than 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombing. And you are not the only ones. In Syria, at least 120,000 people have been killed, not simply in battle, but in wholesale massacres, in a civil war that is increasingly waged across a sectarian divide. Violence is escalating in Iraq, in Lebanon, in Libya, in Egypt. And far more than was the case when you were born, organized violence in the world today is disproportionately concentrated in the Muslim world.

Another striking feature of the countries I have just named, and of the Middle East generally, is that violence against women is also increasing. In Saudi Arabia, there has been a noticeable rise in the practice of female genital mutilation. In Egypt, 99% of women report being sexually harassed and up to 80 sexual assaults occur in a single day.

Especially troubling is the way the status of women as second-class citizens is being cemented in legislation. In Iraq, a law is being proposed that lowers to 9 the legal age at which a girl can be forced into marriage. That same law would give a husband the right to deny his wife permission to leave the house.

Sadly, the list could go on. I hope I speak for many when I say that this is not the world that my generation meant to bequeath yours. When you were born, the West was jubilant, having defeated Soviet communism. An international coalition had forced Saddam Hussein out of Kuwait. The next mission for American armed forces would be famine relief in my homeland of Somalia. There was no Department of Homeland Security, and few Americans talked about terrorism.

Two decades ago, not even the bleakest pessimist would have anticipated all that has gone wrong in the part of world where I grew up. After so many victories for feminism in the West, no one would have predicted that women’s basic human rights would actually be reduced in so many countries as the 20th century gave way to the 21st.

Today, however, I am going to predict a better future, because I believe that the pendulum has swung almost as far as it possibly can in the wrong direction.

When I see millions of women in Afghanistan defying threats from the Taliban and lining up to vote; when I see women in Saudi Arabia defying an absurd ban on female driving; and when I see Tunisian women celebrating the conviction of a group of policemen for a heinous gang rape, I feel more optimistic than I did a few years ago. The misnamed Arab Spring has been a revolution full of disappointments. But I believe it has created an opportunity for traditional forms of authority—including patriarchal authority—to be challenged, and even for the religious justifications for the oppression of women to be questioned.

Yet for that opportunity to be fulfilled, we in the West must provide the right kind of encouragement. Just as the city of Boston was once the cradle of a new ideal of liberty, we need to return to our roots by becoming once again a beacon of free thought and civility for the 21st century. When there is injustice, we need to speak out, not simply with condemnation, but with concrete actions.

One of the best places to do that is in our institutions of higher learning. We need to make our universities temples not of dogmatic orthodoxy, but of truly critical thinking, where all ideas are welcome and where civil debate is encouraged. I’m used to being shouted down on campuses, so I am grateful for the opportunity to address you today. I do not expect all of you to agree with me, but I very much appreciate your willingness to listen.

I stand before you as someone who is fighting for women’s and girls’ basic rights globally. And I stand before you as someone who is not afraid to ask difficult questions about the role of religion in that fight.

The connection between violence, particularly violence against women, and Islam is too clear to be ignored. We do no favors to students, faculty, nonbelievers and people of faith when we shut our eyes to this link, when we excuse rather than reflect.

So I ask: Is the concept of holy war compatible with our ideal of religious toleration? Is it blasphemy—punishable by death—to question the applicability of certain seventh-century doctrines to our own era? Both Christianity and Judaism have had their eras of reform. I would argue that the time has come for a Muslim Reformation.

Is such an argument inadmissible? It surely should not be at a university that was founded in the wake of the Holocaust, at a time when many American universities still imposed quotas on Jews.

The motto of Brandeis University is “Truth even unto its innermost parts.” That is my motto too. For it is only through truth, unsparing truth, that your generation can hope to do better than mine in the struggle for peace, freedom and equality of the sexes.

 Ms. Hirsi Ali is the author of “Nomad: My Journey from Islam to America” (Free Press, 2010). She is a fellow at the Belfer Center of Harvard’s Kennedy School and a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

Hamas-CAIR Tries To Shut Down Documentary on Honor Killing

CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations), the Muslim group that has been tied to terrorist groups, have succeeded in shutting down a screening of the film, “Honor Diaries,” at the University of Michigan, Dearborn last Thursday night, claiming that the film is ‘Islamophobic.’  Last night Megan Kelly interviewed one of the Muslim women featured in the film and another woman who defends ‘Honor Diaries.’

Florida: Muslim Brotherhood Capitol Day 2014 (video)

via Alan Kornan at The United West

March 19, 2014 marked the 6th annual Florida Muslim Capitol Day(MCD). From now on referred to as Muslim Brotherhood Capitol Day!

Ahmed Bedier’s buffoonery was on display again for all to see.

This video gives you an insight into the psychological make up of MCD organizer Mr. Ahmed Bedier, a self described civil rights advocate and community organizer.

Mr. Bedier described Imam Azhar Subedar as a person that if you saw him “walking down the halls of the Capitol he was like gliding. People were not sure if they saw Jesus or someone from the Taliban.”

If this offensive comment was said by anyone else CAIR would have filed an anti-Muslim hate speech story in record time. Ironically, CAIR-FL Directors Hassan Shibly and Nezar Hamze were standing next to Ahmed Bedier and said nothing.

This example exposes CAIR’s selective use of “anti-Islamic” comments as a problem only when a non-Muslim says something offensive. Ahmed Bedier’s offensive comments are legendary so nobody was surprised what came out of his mouth in a public setting.

CAIR-FL Director’s Hassan Shibly and Nezar Hamze were both silent regarding Mr. Bedier’s offensive remarks – so I guess they both were in agreement – What hypocrites.

Mr. Bedier said exactly what was on his mind in this video without any filters because he did not see us filming or he is just a foolish clown.

Mr. Bedier couldn’t have been more arrogant, anti-Muslim, anti-women, anti-Christianity, and inappropriate bundled up into one public outing.

For a complete dosier on Brother Ahmed Bedier go to: http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/joe-…

People should be listening to devout Muslim Dr. Zuhdi Jasser and Tawfiq Hamid rather than this shameful Ahmed Bedier.

Save the Waltham Oak Pub from becoming a mosque

Sent from UK reader daveartgordon

The future of the Waltham Oak on Lea Bridge Road, Walthamstow, is now subject to an appeal process set in place by the owners after having their planning application for a mosque refused last year. With this in mind I would like to remind residents just how important it is to show a united front in order to ensure this site is given a role in the community that benefits as many of that community as possible and not just a small section.

Lodge your opposition on-line by 24th March 2014

The new owners of the Waltham Oak wish to convert this historic old pub into a mosque. It is not too late to stop this from happening by lodging your opposition in writing via the Planning Casework Service planning portal. Simply visit this link…

http://www.pcs.planningportal.gov.uk/pcsportal/

Then type in the case number: 2210702 and click the “search for cases button”. You can then click on the case reference and use the “comment on this case” link at the bottom. Simply be guided by the instructions on the page. Time is of the essence and you will need to get your written objections lodged by the 24th of March (this month).

If you object to this change of use, which we feel will cause substantial inconvenience to local residents (you), then please take this opportunity to object and get this building put back to work for the community. This building needs to find a wider and more economically beneficial use than a place of worship would provide.

This is effectively the last hurdle so please play your part. Take five minutes to submit your objection and stop a development that could blight the enjoyment of your own home forever more.

Additionally there is an appeal hearing at Walthamstow Town Hall on 15th April 2014 @10am which you should attend if you are serious about ensuring this building is not lost to the wider community.

For additional info you can visit us at: http://www.facebook.com/SaveTheWalthamOak

Background:

A pub was first built on the site in 1846 and called ‘Little Wonder’, named after the horse which won the 1840 Derby at odds of 50-1. The pub was renamed the Chestnut Tree in 1863 as Lea Bridge Road was famous for lines of chestnut trees, planted in 1814 and removed in the 1930s. The pub was bought by the Taylor Walker Brewery in 1899, rebuilt in its present form in 1925 and re-opened as the refurbished Waltham Oak in 2005. Mr Watson added: “We now trust that the owners of the Waltham Oak will put aside their plans to turn this pub into a Mosque and seek a more suitable site for such a development.”

Virginia: Muslim Couple Arrested on Immigration Charges for Harboring Domestic Slave

Northern Virginiastan. h/t LUTBOI via USDOJ: Alexandria, Va., Couple Arrested on Immigration Charges for Harboring Domestic Servant in Their Home.

The Department of Justice announced today that a federal criminal complaint has been filed in the Eastern District of Virginia charging defendants Abdelkader and Hnia Amal with immigration offenses in connection with allegations that they held a woman in their home as a domestic servant for three years. The defendants were each charged with one count of alien harboring for commercial advantage and private financial gain.

According to the complaint, the defendants, who are husband and wife, concealed, harbored and shielded from detection in their home in Alexandria, Va., a Moroccan national, identified in the complaint as Witness-1, from December 2007 until December 2010. The complaint also alleges that Hnia Amal had the Moroccan national work for her commercial cleaning company, cleaning various residential and commercial properties. As further alleged in the complaint, the defendants unlawfully brought the Moroccan national into the United States on a visa they procured based on false representations that the Moroccan national would be employed as a domestic servant for a different employer. According to the complaint, the defendants allegedly benefitted financially by paying the Moroccan national only $9,000 for over three years of full-time work in their home and for Hnia Amal’s commercial cleaning company.

If convicted, Abdelkader and Hnia Amal could face a statutory maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. A complaint is merely an accusation, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty.

The names have changed but it’s still slavery.

New York: Push for taxpayer-funded sharia food In NYC schools

Sharia keeps on creepin, creepin, creepin…into your wallet, your kids classroom and pretty much everywhere else. via Group pushes for halal food in NYC schools h/t LUTBOI:

And an older item from Clash Daily: Muslim Halal Food In NYC Schools, Is Your School Next?

Muslims in NYC have never showed shame or humility following the actions of their brethren on 9-11. They have never ceased to make demands upon the residents on NYC…or America, with regards to accommodating their totalitarian system, cloaked in religion.

Now they are taking on food in the public school system…they are framing their arguments/demands in histrionics for the ‘feeling’ public.

“My father told me that any type of meat can’t be eaten. So I cannot eat anything other than peanut butter and jelly and I am tired of it.”

Peanut butter and jelly and going hungry seem to be a common theme in all the stories.

By serving Halal food, most non-Muslims don’t realize: The State would be implementing Sharia Law. No choice for infidels.

There’s even a bill proposal via Pol pushing halal school food.

“It is important to represent and respect the customs of each child,” said Sepulveda.

Tafadar Raouf, suspects the school cafeteria’s vegetables might be cooked in oil that has touched pork, which would make it unlawful.

Even most of the bread the cafeteria uses is not technically halal, he said, since it is made with chemicals barred by Islamic scripture.

DG adds:

All the stories about Muslim kids “going hungry” in school are nonsense. There are plenty of non-meat options for them. I went through school without having meat served. Having meat served is a luxury.

More problematically, many Halal certifying organizations are linked to the Muslim Brotherhood or other terrorist and hate groups.

New Yorkers should not be forced to subsidize Muslim terrorism by Islamist pressure groups using their kids as human shields. Those kids aren’t starving in a corner somewhere as their lying parents would have you believe, they’re stuffing their faces with pizza and french fries.
