America And Europe Desperately Need History Lesson on Islam

via America And Europe Desperately Need History Lesson On Radical Islam

President Obama claims that jihadists like the self-labeled “Islamic State” are not really Islamic. If so, why are Guantanamo detainees served 4 halal meals a day, issued Korans and prayer rugs, and have arrows pointing to Mecca painted throughout the camps? Either somebody is lying or the Gitmo guards have a truly bizarre sense of humor.

J.D. Gordon is a retired Navy Commander and former Pentagon spokesman who served in the Office of the Secretary of Defense from 2005-2009. 

Gordon has it almost right. They really are Islamic, but they are not radical. How can one get a history lesson on radical Islam without all of Islam?

And the kowtowing to Muslim terrorists occurs not just at Gitmo, but more and more in every jail and prison in the U.S. and around the western world.

Obama targets lawyer helping Christians persecuted by Muslims

Source: Obama has new target on persecuted Christians

Living as a Christian in many parts of Iraq or Syria has become impossible – a one-way ticket to martyrdom at the hands of ISIS – yet it remains a near-impossible feat for these persecuted religious minorities to find refuge in America.

But if you can get to America and get your case in the hands of Robert DeKelaita, your chances are greatly improved.

As it turns out, this high-powered Chicago attorney may have been a little too successful. He’s gained asylum for thousands of persecuted Christian from Iraq, Syria and Egypt, and that caught the attention of the Obama Justice Department, which is known to be no friend of Middle Eastern Christians.

DeKelaita, 52, grew up in Kirkuk in the heart of Assyria, a portion of northern Iraq that is home to one of the world’s most ancient Christian communities. Legend has it that the Apostle Thomas evangelized the long-pagan area shortly after the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. The Christians there still speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus.

After Saddam Hussein took power, DeKelaita’s family emigrated to the U.S. in 1973 and settled in the Chicago area. He was just shy of 11 years old at the time. He excelled in school, became a lawyer and vowed to use his legal skills to help his people escape religious persecution by the majority Muslims.

He’s helped reunite hundreds of families in the U.S., most of them since 2003 when the U.S. invasion and overthrow of Saddam unleashed a wave of Islamic terror against Christians that far exceeded anything that was seen under the secular Baathist regime.

The Obama administration moved against DeKelaita in September 2014, raiding his office and scooping up whatever “evidence” they could find against him. He was indicted on charges of falsifying the asylum applications of 12 clients over a 10-year period, allegedly concocting “phony claims” of religious persecution. The government has delayed his trial twice while it seeks to firm up witnesses who will testify against him.

Each count of immigration fraud carries a maximum of 10 years prison and a $250,000 fine.

DeKelaita has been a pillar in the Assyrian Christian community in Chicago, founding the Ashurbanipal Library and donating to projects that celebrate Assyrian art and culture.

“Robert has been a very successful immigration lawyer for our people,” said Ramon Michael, a fellow Assyrian Christian whose family came to the U.S. about the same time as DeKelaita’s.

“I’ve known him since high school,” Michael said. “He has a passion for what he does.”

Some find it ironic that the Obama administration is going after a lawyer who helps persecuted Iraqi Christians gain asylum while it welcomed and granted cart blanch asylum for more than 68,000 unaccompanied alien children from Central America last summer.

At the same time Central Americans are being greeted with a “catch and release” policy at the border, a group of 27 Assyrian Christians who made it to the border earlier this year are being detained indefinitely.

“The way that some of our federal judges view the plight of Christians in Iraq and the way some of the adjudicators view them, you would honestly think ‘what is wrong with these people?’” DeKelaita, who lives in a suburb of Chicago with his wife of 25 years, Ester, and two sons, told WND. “Why can’t they see what the rest of the world sees?”

He said one judge told him: “To argue that Christians in Iraq are being targeted for their religious beliefs is to appeal to either ignorance or emotion.”

“That is absurd,” DeKelaita said.

Though he’s had his share of wins, it’s the losses that stick with him.

Like the case in Detroit a few years ago.

“It was very disappointing to hear that judge, on Christmas Eve, deny your client asylum after his brother had just been killed in Baghdad,” DeKelaita said. “He’d owned a CD store and the Muslims felt, you know, that’s a sin, so they blew up his store and they killed several others with him.”

But the judge ruled that because one Muslim had also died in the attack that there was no targeting of Christians. It didn’t matter that seven Christians died and the owner of the store was a Christian selling Western-style music, which Muslims detest.

“I didn’t know what to say to my client,” he said. “We wished the judge a merry Christmas and just walked out of the courtroom.”

Meanwhile, the slaughter continues in Iraq and Syria. Another 220 Assyrian families were kidnapped just last week in Syria and fears are growing that the men will face beheading, the women a life of servitude as sex slaves. Bishops in Syria and Iraq have put out desperate pleas for help, saying they feel abandoned by the West.

While it detains Iraq Christian asylum seekers, the Obama administration has been welcoming thousands of Muslim refugees from jihadist hotbeds in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq and Somalia, despite warnings from House Homeland Security Chair Michael McCaul, R-Texas, that some of these refugee programs may become a “jihadist pipeline” into the U.S.

DeKelaita, after his indictment, learned that the FBI had been investigating him since 2008, soon after Obama took office.

“It seems like they have more leeway and power to do what they want and so they can,” his old high school friend, Michael, said.

He points to the Obama administration’s attempt earlier this year to block an Iraqi nun from entering the country to testify before Congress on the issue of Christian persecution in the Middle East. After coverage by WND and dozens of other news outlets created a public outcry, Obama relented and issued the visa to Sister Diana Momeka.

WND also reported on Aug. 3 that the Obama-led Department of Homeland Security has detained 27 Iraqi Christian asylum seekers in California for six months, despite the fact that most of them have family who are U.S. citizens living in San Diego.

“Dangerous people are allowed to come in across our borders and these people, I’d let these people babysit my kids, that’s how much I fear these people,” Michael said. “Something is up. I don’t know what, but it seems to be very anti-Christian to me.”

One of DeKelaita’s biggest successes was in getting a judge to strike down an outdated and inaccurate report out of Europe that insisted there was no persecution of Christians in Iraq.

“This report was saying there is no persecution of Christians in Iraq and for many years they were using that to deny asylum and Robert was able to get that stopped, and that was when things started going bad for him,” Michael said. “He was able to make a pretty substantial impact if judges were no longer able to cite that report.”

Australia: Laws against incitement to violence apply to everyone… except Muslims

Source: 1389 Blog – Counterjihad!

Once again, when it comes to radical Islam, Australia turns the other cheek.

What’s the point of having laws against hate speech when a well-known extremist is caught red-handed breaking such laws and the crime goes unpunished?

Despite a clear-cut case, even with video evidence and no denials, Hizbut Tahrir hate preacher Ismail al-Wahwah will get away with openly calling for violent jihad on the streets on Australia.

Six months ago, al-Wahwah, an Islamofacist, stood before a mob in Sydney’s Lakemba, and in Arabic spat out a call for Muslims to wipe out the Jewish race.

Surrounded by chanting flag wavers, he warned Jews should not expect to “live in safety” anymore.

It was video recorded, loaded up on YouTube with English captioning by the boastful organisers.

Originally, the story broke here. Michael was sent the footage by one of his readers who’d spotted it on a mainstream Islamic website.

We watched it in disbelief. The whole session is unashamed hate speech – and has since been the subject of numerous complaints under the appropriate laws.

So off the case went to The NSW Anti-Discrimination Board in NSW.

The Board initially agreed and referred to the case for prosecution to the DPP who asked the police to gather evidence with a view to charging the thug.

That was then.

Yesterday I became aware through police contacts that somehow this ‘up and down case’ had now been stamped too hard.

The Anti-Discrimination Board, NSW Police, and the DPP have now closed the matter and no-one will be charged – even though my contacts confirm he has clearly broken the law.

Which makes you wonder, when it comes to certain groups whether the people policing the law actually do a little reverse discrimination when it comes to who they’ll go after?

Here’s the test: If this website called for violence and random murder of any group or nationality, Michael and I would be run out of town.

If I had called for the death of certain people in my radio days, do you think it would be a non-issue?

It’s not a complicated issue – it’s quite simple.

The law says it’s a crime to incite violence on anyone – let alone a group.

It doesn’t matter who you are – but again with this mob … tolerate it.

Nigerian Pastor: Muslim terrorists have killed 8,000 members, destroyed 70% of my churches

Source: ‘Boko Haram Has Killed 8,000 Members of Our Church,’ Says Nigerian Pastor of 176 Kidnapped Chibok Schoolgirls

A Nigerian pastor and president of the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria has said that Boko Haram has killed as many as 8,000 members of the congregations he oversees, destroyed 70 percent of his churches, and left most of the pastors under his care without a job.

“Seventy percent of our churches have been destroyed in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states by Boko Haram; over 8,000 of our members were killed; one hundred and seventy-six of the girls kidnapped in Chibok are our members,” the Rev. Samuel Dali said, according to Naij.com.

While Dali kept up hopes that the Nigerian military will be able to finally defeat the terror group, which has waged war on the government and the country’s Christians since 2009, he noted that many church facilities across Adamawa, Yobe and Borno states have been destroyed in various raids.

With the wide-spread destruction of churches and slaughter of church members, he added that most of the pastors under his care have lost their jobs.

Last week Boko Haram slaughtered at least 150 people in a raid on the remote Kukuwa-Gari village in Nigeria’s northeastern Yobe state.

“They opened fire instantly, which forced residents to flee. They shot a number of people. Unfortunately, many residents who tried to flee plunged into the river which is full from the rain. Many drowned,” Modu Balumi, a village resident, told the AFP news agency.

“By our latest toll we have 150 people either shot dead or drowned in the attack. The gunmen deliberately killed a fisherman who tried to save drowning residents of the village,” he added.

Italy: Muslim mayor refuses to take in illegal invaders

Source: Muslim mayor refuses to take in refugees – The Local. h/t Islamist Watch

A Muslim mayor in the Tuscan seaside community of Monte Argentario has provoked a political outcry for refusing to accept any refugees.

Centre-right mayor Arturo Cerulli has openly rejected growing political pressure for councils to do more to welcome the thousands of asylum seekers landing in Italy and help to ease the worsening refugee crisis.

“We don’t want refugees here, we don’t have the facilities for them,” Cerulli told The Local on Friday. “We don’t know where to put them, we don’t know what to do with them.”

Cerulli, 60, is a former nuclear engineer and aligned with the New Centre-Right party (NCD) of interior minister, Angelino Alfano.

During his engineering career he travelled extensively to countries including Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and the US, and is married to an Indonesian woman.

He converted to Islam 27 years ago but insists his refusal to welcome asylum seekers is unaffected by his religion.

“Religion has nothing to do with it,” Cerulli said. “I am speaking as the mayor, not as a global citizen. I have to take care of my area, my citizens. I would not know where to put refugees.

“If we accept six people, then they will send another six and then 20 more.”

Monte Argentario on the Tyrrhenian coast near Grosseto is a stunning peninsula that includes popular holiday resort towns of Porto Ercole and Porto Santo Stefano.

In July, Enrico Rossi, the President of the Tuscany region and Sara Biagiotti, head of the National Association of Italian Municipalities (Anci) wrote to 146 local mayors urging them to welcome more immigrants.

“Rossi continues to send circulars demanding all the councils do their part,” Cerulli added. “And what if I am opposed to that? What’s he going to do, treat me badly?”

He told The Local it was up to the national government to resolve the crisis instead of transferring the problem to local councils and individual mayors.

According to the latest figures, more than 100,000 immigrants have arrived in Italy in 2015.

With its panoramic views across the Tuscan Archipelago, the peninsula is popular with foreign and Italian holidaymakers and the population swells from 13,000 to more than 30,000 in the summer months.

“Here it’s full of the ‘radical chic’, left-wing intellectuals,” Cerulli said. “Let them open up their beautiful villas and welcome them if they think it’s better.”


A similar policy should be instituted in the United States.

Those who support illegal immigration should be identified. Illegal immigrants/amnesty recipients should be assigned a sponsor who will be financially responsible for that illegal including food, housing, clothing, health insurance and any potential damage caused by assigned illegal alien be it criminal or civil. It should start by assigning the criminal element and male teen gang members.

Suddenly, 90% of Americans would be against amnesty for illegal aliens.

Minnesota Gives Muslim Terror Suspect on ‘No Fly’ List Commercial Trucking License

The Muslim terror suspect has applied to drive a school bus!

A Minnesota terror suspect may be on the “No Fly” list, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting his Class A trucking license.

Back in 2007, the FBI arrested Amir Meshal on suspicion of leaving a terror training camp in Somalia. But this month, Meshal was granted a license to drive semi-trucks after he passed his road test. He also applied for a school bus endorsement.

Meshal was asked to leave two different U.S. mosques due to suspected radicalization of other members.

Read more from FOX9.com:

In May 2014, Meshal was removed and trespassed from a Bloomington, Minn. mosque, Al Farooq, after he was suspected of radicalizing young people who would later travel to Syria. According to the police report, religious leaders said, “We have concerns about Meshal interacting with our youth.”  Meshal had previously been asked to leave an Eden Prairie, Minn. mosque for similar reasons.

The ACLU recently sued TSA and Homeland Security to have Meshal removed from the “No Fly” list.  But Homeland Security responded in a letter obtained by the FOX 9 Investigators that Meshal, “..may be a threat to civil aviation or national security,” adding that, “It has been determined that you (Amir Meshal) are an individual who represents a threat of engaging in or conducting a violent act of terrorism and who is operationally capable of doing so.”

[…]

The FOX 9 Investigators asked the Minnesota Department of Public Safety why they issued a Class A license for someone who Homeland Security believes has the “operational capacity” to carry out a terror attack. We have not heard back.


More: Taxpayers funded his training.

The $4,000 tuition was paid for through the state workforce program.

And he wants to drive a school bus.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety confirms he was granted the license after passing a road test on August 8. A spokesperson said Meshal has also applied for a school bus endorsement, pending the outcome of a criminal background check.

Arizona: Informant in Garland attack says 50-80 more Muslim terrorists out there

via FBI informant breaks his silence months after Garland, Texas shooting – ABC15 Arizona

PHOENIX – An FBI informant who tape recorded hours of conversations with one of the suspects involved in the Garland, Texas shooting is breaking his silence months after the incident in an exclusive interview with ABC15.

In May, agents said Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi left Phoenix and headed to Garland armed with guns. Investigators said they opened fire on the convention center where the contest was being held. Both men were killed.

Dalba Deng, a paid FBI informant involved in a 2010 case against Simpson, said he spent four years working undercover helping the FBI build a case prior to the attack in May.

The FBI was aware of the Garland terrorist for four years prior to that 2015 attack and didn’t stop him.

Agents asked him to pose as someone who wanted to know more about Islam.

Deng befriended Simpson, but admitted he felt uneasy about it.

“I was kind of a little nervous.”

Deng said the reason he became involved was to save lives.

“I did it from my heart,” he said. “I was trying to help because they were trying to kill some people.”

Using hundreds of hours of conversations recorded by Deng, the feds built a case.

“He (Simpson) said he was going to kill people,” Deng said. “No matter what, he wanted to kill people.”

In the end, there was not enough evidence to convict Simpson of being involved in international terrorism, but Deng said he wasn’t surprised when he found out that Simpson was one of the shooters at the cartoon drawing contest in Garland, Texas.

“That’s what he was trying to do,” he said.

Weeks later, the FBI arrested another Phoenix man linked to Simpson for his alleged role in the attack. Deng said that arrest won’t be the last.

When asked if he thought there were more people in Simpson’s group that the community should be worried about, Deng simply answered, “Yes.”

“There is more than that. We are talking about like 50, maybe like 80 people.”

Sources said the FBI has at least seven people on their radar connected to Simpson, but the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office are not confirming or denying that information because it is an ongoing investigation.


50-80 more Muslim terrorists lurking? Not hard to believe at all.

But why would the FBI allow an informant to go to the media? To stir fear? To portend a coming attack?

UPDATE: Pamela Geller, the intended target of the Garland jihad attack writes:

Why haven’t the media and political elites gone after these jihad terrorists with anything like the venom (let alone the same amount) they have displayed in attacking me and anyone who refuses to submit to the most extreme, savage system of governance?

And speaking of the media, the political elites, and law enforcement, why is this “paid informant” speaking directly to the media? Why the heads-up to the other jihad-plotting Muslims?

The FBI would do well to stop targeting those who oppose jihad terror and start monitoring the mosques tied to the hundreds of American Muslims who plan, plot, and seek to wage jihad.
