U.S.-trained commander of Tajikistan’s special forces joins Islamic State

…vows death to “American pigs.” via The U.S.-trained commander of Tajikistan’s special forces has joined the Islamic State – The Washington Post.

In late April, the chief of an elite police unit in Tajikistan disappeared. Relatives said Col. Gulmurod Khalimov, who commanded the Tajik Interior Ministry’s special forces, had gone on a business trip. Other rumors suggested he had vanished after falling out with colleagues at a high-level meeting.

Now, there appears to be more clarity: Khalimov is in Syria and has defected to the Islamic State.

That’s according to a recent video that emerged online showing Khalimov clad in black and espousing the cause of the jihadist organization. It’s hard to tell where the footage was shot, but in the video, Khalimov claims to have joined the Islamic State, making him one of the most high-profile central Asians to travel to Syria and enter the extremists’ ranks. He also made clear he’s not alone.

“Listen, you dogs, the president and ministers,” Khalimov says in the video, “if only you knew how many boys, our brothers are here, waiting and yearning to return to reestablish sharia law there.”

Khalimov received training from elite instructors in Russia as well as in the United States, according to a U.S. official. He had choice words for foreign governments.

“Listen, you American pigs, I’ve been three times to America, and I saw how you train fighters to kill Muslims,” he said. “God willing, I will come with this weapon to your cities, your homes, and we will kill you.”

In the video, Khalimov urges his compatriots to “stop serving infidels.”

Brooklyn: Muslim pleads guilty to conspiring to kill U.S. troops

saddiq-al-abbadi

via Yemeni national Saddiq al-Abbadi pleads guilty – CNN.com.

A Yemeni national has pleaded guilty to conspiring to kill U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, authorities said Tuesday.

Saddiq al-Abbadi also admitted to providing material support to al Qaeda, federal prosecutors in New York said in a statement.

He could receive a life sentence.

“The defendant was a high-level al Qaeda operative with ties to the terrorist group’s senior leadership in both Pakistan and Yemen,” said acting U.S. Attorney Kelly T. Currie. “He fought in battles against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, tried to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan by luring them to a compound rigged with explosives, and helped an American citizen gain entry to al Qaeda.”

Al-Abbadi, 40, was among two men arrested in Saudi Arabia and then transferred to U.S. custody. Al-Abbadi had already served more than five years of a 12-year prison sentence in Saudi Arabia before he was handed over.

Prosecutors say al-Abbadi traveled from Yemen to Iraq, where he fought from 2005 to 2007 with al Qaeda-linked forces against American soldiers. He went to Pakistan in 2008, worked with senior members of al Qaeda and then traveled to Afghanistan to fight U.S. forces there, according to the complaint.

After that, he went to Afghanistan. In June 2008, he attempted to booby-trap a compound, but U.S. forces noticed the wiring and also saw ordnance lying around. No one was killed as the troops left, and the area was destroyed later.

Al-Abbadi also helped American Bryant Neal Vinas join al Qaeda.

Vinas, a native of New York, pleaded guilty in January 2009 to charges of aiding al Qaeda and helping attack a U.S. military base in Afghanistan, but his case was kept secret until July 2009. Authorities accused Vinas of firing rockets at the base along with others in September 2008, and of providing al Qaeda with information about the New York transit system and the Long Island Railroad. Vinas had been arrested in Pakistan late in 2008.

Ali Alvi, the other man who was arrested with al-Abbadi, has pleaded not guilty, according to media reports.

 

Canada Frees Gitmo Terrorist Who Killed US Army Sgt.

via Gitmo Terrorist Who Killed Army Sgt., Lived at Bin Laden Compound Freed in Canada – Judicial Watch

An Al Qaeda terrorist guilty of murdering a U.S. Army sergeant and “transferred” from Guantanamo to Canada by the Obama administration has been released from an Alberta prison while he appeals his conviction for war crimes.

His name is Omar Ahmed Khader and he’s a member of Canada’s “first family of terror,” according to an international news report that confirms Khader’s father was an associate of Osama Bin Laden who moved his family to Pakistan to support the Afghan mujahideen in its war against the Soviet Union. In 2010 Khader was convicted of five war crimes, including throwing a grenade that killed Army Sergeant Christopher Speer in Afghanistan during a 2002 combat operation.

Khader spent around a decade at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and in 2010 cut a deal to serve the majority of his sentence in Canada. Under the terms, he admitted being an “alien unprivileged enemy belligerent” and throwing the grenade that killed Sergeant Speer. In 2012 Khader was taken to Canada, where he evidently began working on an appeal. This month a Canadian judge ordered the release of the jihadist while he appeals his U.S. convictions. Canadian government officials argue that the judge has no jurisdiction to hear the unprecedented bail application from an offender convicted abroad and returned to Canada, according to a national news story.

The bottom line is that this terrorist, like so many others who have returned to jihadist causes after leaving Gitmo, never should have been released. To meet his longtime goal of closing Gitmo President Obama has tried clearing out the military compound that still houses the world’s most dangerous terrorists, including 9/11 masterminds Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM), Ramzi Binalshibh, Ali Abdul Aziz Ali and Mustafa Ahmed Adam al Hawsawi as well as USS Cole bomber Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. In December Judicial Watch reported that the U.S. government put an Al Qaeda operative that had been freed from Gitmo on a global terrorist list and offered a $5 million reward for information on his whereabouts.

Hundreds of Gitmo terrorists who have been discharged over the years—under a program that started with President George W. Bush—have reengaged in terrorism. In fact, Judicial Watch has been reporting this for years based on U.S. intelligence sources. Back in 2010 JW wrote about a report that the Director of National Intelligence gave Congress documenting that 150 former Gitmo detainees were confirmed or suspected of “reengaging in terrorist or insurgent activities after transfer.” At least 83 remained at large, according to the document.

Now we must worry that yet another radical extremist who hates America is on the loose, in a friendly neighboring country where cross border travel is quite easy. Khader was encouraged by his father, a senior Al Qaeda leader in Canada, to travel to Khowst Afghanistan to translate for Al Qaeda personnel and participate in jihad against the United States, according to a Department of Defense (DOD) file kept by the Joint Task Force Guantanamo. “Detainee received training and instruction on how to build and plant Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) and how to plant land mines,” the DOD file says. It also reveals that Khader “admitted to taking part in several mining and combat operations” and that he was present during a 2002 raid on a suspected Al Qaeda compound by U.S. Special Forces. “Detainee was wounded and captured after killing the USSF soldier,” the DOD writes.

Khader has direct family affiliations with senior Al Qaeda members, the Pentagon file states, and his entire family lived at one of Osama bin Laden’s compounds in Jalalabad Afghanistan. The U.S. government considered him to be a detainee of “high intelligence value” who provided important information on the Derunta, Al-Farouq and Khalden training camps as well as key Al Qaeda and Taliban operatives. The U.S. let Khader go even though it had labeled him a “high risk” enemy combatant “likely to pose a threat to the U.S., its interest or its allies.”

Canada: Judge grants bail to ex-Gitmo jihadi who killed American soldier

Videos below. via Alberta judge grants Omar Khadr bail | Toronto Star.

A Canadian judge has granted Omar Khadr bail, offering the former Guantanamo Bay detainee his first taste of freedom after more than 12 years in custody.

Alberta Justice June Ross released her verdict Friday, a month after Khadr appeared in an Edmonton court appealing for bail while his Guantanamo conviction is being challenged in a Washington court.

“He has 12 ½ year track record as a model prisoner, and a release plan supported by educators, mental health professionals, and his lawyers,” Ross wrote.

“This is a circumstance where balancing a strong appeal and the public confidence in the administration of justice favour the same result.”

Khadr’s longtime Canadian lawyer, Dennis Edney, along with his wife Patricia, has offered to have Khadr live with them and provide whatever community supervision he may require.

A large community group in Edmonton — from imams and medical professionals, to professors at a Christian university where Khadr has been offered admission — has rallied around the 28-year-old.

Edney and lawyer Nathan Whitling, who argued the bail application, said they were delighted by the news. “Omar is fortunate to be back in Canada where we have real courts and real laws,” said Whitling.

Added Edney about Khadr’s release, “it has been a long time coming.”

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney issued a statement saying he was “disappointed” by the decision and that the federal government plans to appeal. Ottawa could argue that Khadr must remain in custody until that appeal is heard.

“Our Government will continue to work to combat the international jihadi movement, which has declared war on Canada and her allies,” Blaney wrote.

A hearing will be held May 5 to determine the conditions of Khadr’s bail.

Khadr is currently held at Bowden Institute, in Innisfail, Alta. and has spent nearly half his life in custody. He was shot and captured in 2002, at the age of 15, during a firefight with American and Afghan soldiers. During the battle, U.S. Delta Forces soldier Christopher Speer was fatally wounded with a grenade.

The Pentagon charged Khadr with five offences under the Military Commissions Act (MCA), which were written years after Khadr’s alleged crimes.

Khadr’s U.S. lawyer is arguing that the Pentagon should not have retroactively prosecuted Khadr since killing a soldier in conflict was not a war crime until the Bush administration rewrote the laws of war after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

In 2010, Khadr confessed to throwing the grenade that killed Speer as part of a Pentagon plea deal that allowed him to return to Canada to serve the remainder of his eight-year sentence. He later said he could not remember the firefight and only pleaded guilty because he felt it was his “only hope” to get out of Guantanamo.

Kansas: Fort Riley Jihad Plotter Taught by ISNA Imam Assigned by the FBI

bizarroworld

via Islamic leader tried to mentor terror suspect.

TOPEKA (KSNT) – John T. Booker Jr. Is being charged with plotting a suicide bomb attack on Fort Riley. Booker Jr. Also goes by the name Muhammad Abdullah Hassan. Prosecutors say he told an FBI informant he wanted to kill Americans on behalf of ISIS.

“It’s had a shocking affect,” Omar Hazim has been the Imam at the Islamic center of Topeka for more than 25 years.

Last year the FBI reached out to him, after Booker Jr posted his terrorist intentions on Facebook.

They asked him to help show and explain to Booker Jr. the true Islamic beliefs, “it’s a message of love and tolerance, it’s a message of mercy and respect and forgiveness.”

Hazim then got Booker Jr. Involved in Friday prayers and Sunday prayer classes, teaching the history and beliefs of Islam.

“I wanted to do what I could to try and unravel those ideas and show him over and over and over again what the holy Koran says about acts of terrorism,” says Hazim.

But even with the almost a year of teachings, Booker Jr. still followed through with his initial intentions, going against everything the Islamic community believes. “It’s completely contrary to everything that the Koran teaches and it’s contrary to our life style here,” says Hazim.

Hazim says the community will continue to pray and are glad that no one at Fort Riley or Booker Jr. Was hurt.

A Kansas Muslim leader is claiming he was assigned by the FBI to try and de-radicalize the man who recentlly tried to bomb Fort Riley for Allah. The video can be seen below along with more footage of the Topeka Muslim leader at a press conference in Topeka, KS defending Sharia Law.

There is much more to this story when you consider Imam Omar Hazim’s association with groups like the Midland Islamic Council……. a story for another day……

…in the opinion here at Causing Fitna, this is some really dumb sh%^……


Hazim is blatantly lying to the media – as permitted in Islam – and they don’t even bother to fact check him on his statements. But many others have and the verdict ain’t pretty for non-Muslims.

What About the Good Verses in the Quran?

…there is nothing positive in the Quran for non-Muslims. Period. And there are 527 verses in the Quran that are intolerant to non-Muslims, 109 verses calling on Muslims to make war on non-Muslims.

More via The “Good” in the Koran

The Koran addresses three audiences-Muslims, kafirs and humanity as a whole. In looking for the good, we cannot use verses that advocate good for Muslims, such as a Muslim should not kill another Muslim as kafirs are not Muslims.

Kafirs have many names-unbeliever, infidel, polytheist, agnostics, atheist, and apostate. Every verse that deals with kafirs is negative and/or violent.


Is it any wonder why Booker aka Muhammad Abdullah Hassan was more inspired to wage jihad after receiving direct instruction from an imam of the unindicted co-conspiring ISNA who taught Hassan the Koran?

A year ago, the FBI assured the public and the military that Hassan was not a threat.

 

Report: Afghan Colonel Paid $250K to Kill U.S. Troops

He killed eight of them. via Afghan Colonel Paid $250K to Kill U.S. Troops | PJ Tatler.

by Patrick Poole

A bombshell revelation has emerged about the incident responsible for the greatest U.S. Air Force loss of life during the War on Terror, the deadliest “green-on-blue” attack during U.S. involvement in Afghanistan.

On April 27, 2011, Afghan Air Force Colonel Ahmad Gul gunned down eight U.S. Air Force personnel and a civilian contractor inside the Afghan Air Force headquarters, including investigators who had just arrived in the country to examine rampant corruption in the Afghan military.

Multiple Air Force and CENTCOM investigations claimed to find no motive for the attack, leaving the families of those killed with no answers.

Now, a senior U.S. official has gone on the record claiming that a United Nations team tracked substantial payments to the killer and his family made days just prior to the incident.

These revelations appear in the season finale of For The Record, which airs tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET on The Blaze TV.

For the past year, I have worked as a consultant with the For The Record documentary investigative team looking into the Kabul airport massacre and the Pentagon’s handling of the matter. Last November, I appeared on an episode of the program noting that the Pentagon’s multiple explanations for the attack didn’t match their own forensics. Here’s a trailer for that For the Record episode, “Insider Attack”:

A follow-up report on the Pentagon’s handling of the spike in “green-on-blue” incidents appeared in January, after the killing of U.S. Army Major General Harold Greene in August last year. He is the highest-ranking U.S. official killed during the War on Terror. The report noted that U.S. personnel who warned of a potential escalation of insider attacks were punished by their superiors:

Tonight’s For The Record episode includes an interview with one of the top U.S. officials charged with combating illicit financing in Afghanistan. He reveals the payoffs made to Col. Ahmad Gul:

Sara Carter, senior investigative reporter for The Blaze, reported today on the stunning revelation that this official’s team tracked $250,000 in payments to the killer:

A final investigation by U.S. Central Command did find circumstantial evidence that Gul may have been involved in a criminal network, but that evidence was not pursued and a large portion of the investigation still remains classified, according to CENTCOM.

But a six-month investigation by For the Record suggests that Gul murdered the airmen at the behest of someone or a criminal network, according to numerous sources and military documents.

For the Record learned that a joint investigation conducted by then-U.S. Task Force 2010, charged at the time with tracing terror financing in Afghanistan and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, found that Gul had received a large deposit in a family bank account and that all of his debts were wiped clean just one week before the killings.

Thomas Creal, who served as the lead expert for Task Force 2010, investigated the killer’s finances and found evidence he says overwhelmingly points to Gul’s connection to criminal networks.

This report has never been made public.

“There was extensive corruption inside the Afghan military and investigations were cut short, hampered by ranking personnel at the State Department and military,” Creal said. “The insider killings don’t need to continue. We can take steps to mitigate these suicidal hits but we can’t do it if evidence is ignored.”

The Pentagon cover-up began almost immediately after the massacre, most likely to avoid embarrassing revelations of rampant corruption by our Afghan “allies.” The initial report had to be followed up by a second and third report after the lies in the first began to be challenged — including the first report’s claim that Gul had committed suicide after the attack, but was later found to have died from gunshot wounds to the chest from two different weapons.

Despite overwhelming evidence to the effect found in their own reports, the Pentagon claimed to find no conclusive evidence of Taliban involvement — even though the terror group immediately claimed credit for the attack.

This resulted in bizarre reporting on the Pentagon’s findings, such as an Air Force Times article entitled “Motive in Kabul shooting deaths remains elusive”…


 

 

Four Muslims arrested but get American Sniper viewing shut down at Eastern Michigan Univ

Campus jihadist continue to terrorize. via Four students arrested protesting American Sniper Friday night movie – The Eastern Echo. h/t Iron Burka

Four students were arrested after disrupting the planned showing of “American Sniper” Friday evening in the EMU Student Center Auditorium. The film had begun but was stopped and eventually cancelled. The 10 p.m. showing was cancelled as well.

Ahmed Abbas, earning his Ph.D. in psychology, Layali Alsadah, junior majoring in psychology, Jenna Hamed, senior majoring in apparel and textiles merchandise, and Sabreen Dari, junior majoring in psychology, worked with 35 other students to shut down the 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. showings of the Academy Award-winning film.

The protesters filed onto the stage under the screen and held up two signs. One read, “Is this your idea of dialogue?” and the other one had the definition of propaganda.

Hamed began speaking to the crowd about why the protesters where there.

“Do you want me to play a movie painting your people this way?” Hamed asked the crowd.

Members of the audience began yelling at the protesters, “Tell us after.”

Department of Public Safety officers were called to escort the students out. According to Sergeant Shana Thompson, four students were arrested for disturbing the peace. They were released 40 minutes later and no charges were filed.

According to Sergeant Thompson the students arrested are being referred to the office of Student Conduct and Community Standard for possible university sanctions.

…the showing has been postponed.

“This is not about freedom of speech, this is not about freedom of expression…”


It never is with rabid Muslims who espouse sharia law. Why? Because imams like the one in this video preach: “We don’t have freedom of speech in Islam.” Islam is not compatible with liberty.

Here’s a glimpse of what Muslims on U.S. campuses are afraid of:

It seems these Muslim anti-free speech thugs are aligning with the Muslim terrorists portrayed in the movie.
