DHS Head Reveals Policy: ‘Critical to refrain from calling Islamic terrorism Islamic’

via DHS: Calling Islamic Terrorism ‘Islamic’ Offends Muslims – Investors.com. h/t Eye on the World

After a Muslim terrorist gunned down unarmed Marines in Tennessee, the head of Homeland Security revealed a policy to downplay any Islamic role in such terror. The feds are now blindfolding each other on the threat.

Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson refuses to call Islamic terror “Islamic,” arguing it’s “critical” to refrain from the label in order to “build trust” among Muslims.

In jaw-dropping remarks Friday at Aspen Institute’s annual security forum, Johnson said the government will call such attacks “violent extremism” over “Islamic terrorism” out of respect for the Muslim community.

The policy explains why the U.S. prosecutor and lead FBI investigator in the Chattanooga case still insist on calling Mohammad Abdulazeez a “homegrown violent extremist,” though he blogged about his religious motivations for the attack, and he and his family attended a local mosque controlled by a terror-tied Islamic trust.

Johnson says that dismissing the religious dimension of the widening homegrown Islamic terror threat is part of a strategy to gain the “cooperation” of the Muslim community. He says that if officials called Islamic terrorism “Islamic,” they’d “get nowhere.”

Even the moderator was dumbfounded: “Isn’t government denying the fundamental religious component of this kind of extremism by not using the word Islamic?” “I could not disagree more,” Johnson retorted, arguing that Islam “is about peace.”

Earth to Johnson: You already are “nowhere.” The FBI director warns that he can’t keep up with all the homegrown Muslim terrorism cases cropping up now in all 50 states. Chattanooga is just the latest tragic example of the FBI and DHS missing plots in the pipeline.

And what fruit has pandering to local Muslim leaders produced? U.S. Attorney Bill Killian helped dedicate Abdulazeez’s mosque at its grand opening in 2012, even befriended its leader. Did Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga president Bassam Issa tip him off about Abdulazeez’s radicalization? Did he stop him from driving down the street and opening fire on two military sites?

An internal PowerPoint document shows that mosque leaders were busy invoking the names of radical Muslim Brotherhood leaders to raise money for the mosque, leaders like Sheikh Qaradawi, who once issued a fatwa calling on Muslims to kill U.S. soldiers.

Instead of investigating the mosque and its leaders, the feds have stepped up their groveling.

The notion that Muslim leaders are helping us is totally bogus. In one Islamic State hot spot, Minneapolis, the local Muslim leaders are “cooperating” by demanding that the FBI release jailed IS terrorist suspects. In Boston, congregants of a mosque attended by the Boston marathon bombers are “cooperating” by holding fundraisers and rallies for convicted al-Qaida- and IS-tied terrorists.

Johnson, like his boss, are delusional: Their strategy of “winning hearts and minds” already has failed. So now it’s up to state and local authorities to take this fight from the feds and put down this growing insurgency themselves. They can start by passing a law that allows authorities to press legal action not just against terrorists but also any of their supporters in the Muslim community.

A Tennessee senator frustrated over the slow pace of the federal investigation in Chattanooga introduced a bill that passed implementing Andy’s Law, named after Pvt. Andrew Long, the Little Rock Army recruiter murdered by terrorist Abdulhakim Muhammad.

Arkansas, Louisiana and Kansas have also passed the anti-terror law, and North Carolina is on the verge of doing so. Letting victims of terrorism seek damages from individuals and organizations that provide material support to terrorists will go a long way to filling the investigative void left by PC-paralyzed Washington.


More: Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security ‘We Must Give Voice To The Plight of Muslims In This Country’

“We in the administration and the government should give voice to the plight of Muslims living in this country and the discrimination that they face. And so I personally have committed to speak out about the situation that very often people in the Muslim community in this country face. The fact that there are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, and the Islamic faith is one about peace and brotherhood.”

Right, the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood.

Johnson is supposed to be committed to protecting Americans from Muslim terrorists. That’s precisely why the DHS was created. Johnson must be removed ASAP and DHS disbanded!

April 2015: DHS Secretary Lauds U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and Islam

NYPD & DHS meet Muslim leaders to counter jihad – Muslims say ‘stop monitoring us’

Not just any NYPD and DHS minions, but the top dogs. Buried in this article about ISIS, via ABC News.

NYPD Deputy Director of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller echoed the secretary’s message that the community should be more involved in countering extremist messages.

“This can’t be a government effort, if a government effort that’s countering a call for violence that’s clothed in religion is coming from the government it’s already poisoned,” Miller said on “This Week.” “This needs to come from those credible voices in the community.”

Miller said he and Johnson met with Muslim community leaders in New York last week. Some members of those communities said the federal government has not done enough to stop surveillance and investigations that target Muslims. Miller said he understood their concerns but still hopes community leaders will be more engaged in the counter-message.


Hope is not a good strategy John.

DHS Secretary Lauds U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and Islam

via DHS Secretary Lauds U.S. Muslim Brotherhood and Islam.

 Is it treason for a Public Official to publicly laud an enemy of the United States? The DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson did so last week.

Screen-Shot-2015-04-03-at-10.20.05-AM

At the “Empowering Voices” conference (3/20/2015) held by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was not only given an award by our enemy for his outreach and engagement activities with them – for which DHS brags – he said, at the event, “The reading of the Quran reminded me of two things that MLK said a lot, which are quintessentially American values.” [One is, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ Second, ‘I cannot be, what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be in this country.’”]

Secretary Jeh Johnson is the same guy who declared the “War on Terror” over in 2012.

It seems that Sedition, Treason, and Aiding and Abetting the Enemy are all in play here.  Where are the calls to the Department of Justice from our elected officials to charge Secretary Johnson?

Islam’s Latest Contribution to America: Black Hawks, X-ray Machines, Border Patrol at Super Bowl

One of the greatest contributions Islam has given America is actually a loss, a loss of rights. The Islam Tax.

via Katy Perry’s Halftime Costume Scanned in Super Bowl Safety Bid – ABC News.

The Super Bowl is supposed to be about fun and games, but law enforcement is planning for every possible security scenario.

High-tech scanners are being used to search every item entering the University of Phoenix Stadium — from fixtures and food to the costume worn by halftime performer Katy Perry, customs and border protection program manager Ronald Nunn said.

Officers will be wearing portable radiation detectors, and bomb-sniffing dogs will also be employed.

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson, in an exclusive interview inside the stadium, told ABC News that security experts are on high alert, with a focus on smaller-scale and lone wolf-style attacks.

“Our challenges in Homeland Security are evolving. We have more concerns about domestic-based acts of violence, inspired by things people may see or read on the Internet,” Johnson said.

While Johnson said there are no credible threats against this weekend’s game, he said authorities are prepared to respond by any means necessary. That security involves a U.S. Customs Black Hawk helicopter, part of a fleet of aircraft guarding the Super Bowl from above. F-16 fighter jets will also be in the air.

Lone wolves are never alone and they are always Muslims inspired by Islam, but don’t expect the leader of DHS to actually speak the truth.

via Border Protection Lends a Hand for Super Bowl Security – ABC News.

Black Hawk helicopters and truck-sized X-ray machines that are typically deployed along the U.S.-Mexico border have been brought to the Super Bowl venue to assist with the security effort.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection showed off the technology Monday as it helps with Super Bowl security.

Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske was on hand for a demonstration of the agency’s Black Hawks and large mobile X-ray machines that are used to detect contraband and explosives. The helicopters and X-ray machines are from Tucson and Nogales, some of the busiest spots in the nation for the smuggling of drugs and immigrants.

Kerlikowske said Arizona’s border with Mexico still has adequate security while some equipment is used in Glendale for the Super Bowl.

He said it’s not just the technology that will help keep the big game safe, but the expertise behind it.

“The real key about this equipment is the people who operate them,” Kerlikowske said.

The CBP is also deploying about 100 officers who will assist other federal and local law enforcement agencies.

The X-ray machines are mobile and the size of a large truck.

They slowly pan outside a semi-truck while operators look for anomalies. The X-ray machines are in heavy use at the Mariposa Port of Entry in Nogales, one of the busiest ports of entry for commerce in the country.

Within a few minutes, the X-ray machines will have scanned an entire semi-trailer, looking for contraband and explosives.

The CBP also will use its Tucson-based helicopters and Black Hawks to monitor the air during the game, when other aircrafts are not allowed to fly nearby. The Black Hawks are used by the CBP and the Border Patrol for a variety of missions, including for rescuing border crossers who become sick or injured. They’ve also recently been commonly used to arrest so-called scouts, or men who act as lookouts in the desert for drug and human smuggling organizations.


Maybe they should deploy border patrol at the mosques and Islamic centers. Or actually stop Muslims at the border and then Americans can go back to enjoying life without having their rights infringed at every turn.

 

 

DC: DHS deems threats against Jewish business by self-proclaimed ISIS Muslims non-credible

If the roles were reversed it would be worldwide news and the FBI would be investigating. via Jewish-owned D.C. business targeted by self-described ISIS militants | WJLA.com.

WASHINGTON (WJLA) — A thriving D.C. business is the target of self-described ISIS militants.

For the past five months a barrage of phone calls and internet postings have threatened employees. The callers vow to carry out mass murder.

ABC7 News is not identifying the business nor any individuals because of the sensitive nature of these threats.

The business is Jewish owned and some of the threats are anti-Semitic while others are racial or homophobic.

The recent terrorist attacks in Paris have employees worried.

The owner says D.C. police investigated but handed the case over to Homeland Security, which deemed the threats not credible.

Verizon says the calls are traceable but it needs police to ask it to take action.

The business owner says the detectives tell him they must hear from Verizon first.

The business owner and employees say they know of no one who has an axe to grind against them and they are baffled as to why the callers are targeting them.


In light of the attacks on a Jewish cafe in Paris where four people were slaughtered, and Muslim attacks on Jews around the world, one would think they’d check out the phone records at a minimum.

Obama appoints Muslim to special assistant in Office of Director for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in DHS

To oversee importing tens of thousands of Muslims from jihad countries? via U of M graduates receive presidential appointments – Memphis Business Journal.

The University of Memphis’ Leadership Education and Development (LEAD) program can now boast D.C. appointments in the Obama Administration for three of its 2014 graduates.

Fatima Noor is now a special assistant in the Office of the Director for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Department of Homeland Security.

They will work in the Obama administration until January 2017.

In March of this year, a University of Memphis alum who works in the White House contacted the Student Affairs administration to say that she had been successful in getting University of Memphis students a spot to interview for Presidential Appointments.

According to Meta Laabs, director of Student Affairs at the U of M, most of these interviews are usually reserved for Ivy League schools.

He added that Okere and Noor had an interest in public service before participating in the University’s Leadership Exchange, “But that program seemed to have made it okay for them to pursue that path.”

With apparently no qualifications other than a few volunteer gigs and a hijab. via Presidential Appointment: Fatima Noor : The Muslim Observer.

She majored in psychology with minors in Spanish and international relations. She recently completed a month-long research fellowship in psychology hosted by Carnegie-Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh; her research will be ongoing for this program. Noor was a leader in many honor societies at the U of M. She has done volunteer work with World Relief Memphis and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition.


Obama has stacked his administration with Muslims – many with nefarious, terror-linked backgrounds and sympathies.

Maryland Mosque Already Tax-Exempt now Getting DHS / FEMA Taxpayer Grants for Security

Security from what? From being investigated for preaching jihad? via U.S. Mosque Already Tax-Exempt now getting DHS / FEMA Taxpayer Grants for Security – Walid Shoebat.

It appears that Muslim Brotherhood-linked institutions in the U.S. have found yet another way to benefit from taxpayers, in addition to being tax-exempt. The latest example comes courtesy of the Islamic Society of Baltimore (ISB), which is receiving tens of thousands of dollars in grant (taxpayer) money courtesy of a program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), which is an arm of the DHS.

A man who has been identified as a Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator of the Obama administration by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) is Mohamed Elibiary who until recently, had been an adviser to DHS. There is no evidence to suggest that Elibiary had any role in the program that allows grant money to go to mosque security. However, as a Muslim Brotherhood infiltrator of DHS, there’s equally no evidence that he would object to such a program; such evidence suggests he’d support it. In fact, his tweets were quite pro-Muslim Brotherhood as Shoebat.com reported. The grant program also further illustrates just why infiltration of the U.S. government by the Brotherhood is so problematic.

ISB, which already possesses 501(c)(3) status has found a new way to double-dip (h/t Pamela Geller):

ISB will be receiving $74,675.00 which will go towards upgrading, enhancing and adding to our security infrastructure. Over the next several months you will see contractors on-site conducting these security enhancements.

As Cultural Jihad points out, a Muslim Brotherhood front group that is already tax-exempt has been calling on other groups / mosques with similar status to take advantage of this additional revenue stream:

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 4/17/14) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is urging mosques and Muslim institutions nationwide to consider applying for funds available through the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP).

The program is designed to assist nonprofit organizations that are vulnerable to terrorist attacks with procuring and installing security equipment to enhance safety.

The practice of more seasoned Muslim organizations in the U.S. serving as a resource for newer ones and start-ups is a common practice, as Shoebat.com has reported. While Elibiary was an adviser to the DHS, Salam al-Marayati and Mohamed Magid head tax-exempt Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups in MPAC and ISNA respectively.

Tax-exempt status being granted to highly questionable Islamic entities in the U.S. is not new. As Shoebat.com reported, many of these institutions were granted such status during the Bush administration. In fact, the signature of none other than Lois Lerner is at the bottom of several of the approval letters.

One such way to remedy these problems involves passage of a bill introduced by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) earlier this year. It calls for the Muslim Brotherhood to be identified as a terrorist organization and all of its affiliated groups to be put on watch or otherwise sanctioned.

Under such a scenario, it’s conceivable that all Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated organizations and mosques – and there are many – with tax exempt status would lose that status as well as not qualify for security grants.
