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!

Florida: Broward Women Judicial Candidates Cover Up For Muslim Event

Voluntary dhimmitude. Note: Islam means submission, not peace. via Broward Women Judicial Candidates Cover Up For Muslim Event | RedBroward.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com.

State Rep. Gwyn Clarke-Reed and rumored judicial candidate Betsy Benson

Last week, several Broward Democrat politicians and candidates attended a Ramadan event at the Islamic Foundation of South Florida in Sunrise. The event was hosted by the Democrat-friendly Emerge USA group. Last year, REDBROWARD documented EMERGE USA’s strong support for Democrats Charlie Crist and Broward County Commissioner Barbara Sharief.

Pictures plastered all over social media show Wednesday’s event featured Broward County Commissioner Marty Kiar, Broward Sheriff Scott Israel and Sunrise Mayor Mike Ryan. While these gentleman appeared as they do at any community or political event, the Broward women running for office looked very different.

Pictures show State Rep. Gwyn Clarke-Reed and several women seeking to be Broward judges wearing scarves over their heads.

Before you say they’re showing respect inside of a mosque, many of the pictures were taken under a tent in the parking lot.

Broward Chief Judge Peter Weinstein attended the event in his normal attire. Would a sitting female judge cover her head? Would she politely decline and use the opportunity as a “teaching moment” on womens issues in the Muslim faith?

Did anybody tell Rhoda Sokoloff, Betsy Benson and Andrea Gundersen to cover their heads?


Most likely it was the terrorist-friendly, CAIR-linked group Emerge USA that told them to cover. From previous posts:

Emerge USA, an innocuously named Islamist lobbying and advocacy group that attempts to dupe politicians into attending its functions by seducing them with a “Muslim vote.”

In December 2014, Emerge co-sponsored an event for the Muslim Students Association (MSA) with a number of organizations which have been associated with Hamas and/or al-Qaeda financing, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), ICNA Relief, and Islamic Relief (IR).

87 Percent of Network Islamic Terror Stories Omit Muslim Threats of Ramadan Violence

It’s the media, stupid. Aiding and abetting. via 87 Percent of Network Islamic Terror Stories Skip Threats of Ramadan Violence.

Acts of terror marked the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. Terrorists cut a bloody path from Tennessee to Tunisia — one that commanded much of the broadcast network’s attention. Only newscasts often ignored the religious timing of the threats by Muslim terrorists.

The Islamic terrorist group ISIS, which declared a Middle East “caliphate” a year ago on June 29, 2014, strongly encouraged violence during the Muslim holy month. Reuters and The Telegraph (UK) reported on June 23, that an ISIS spokesman called for Muslims to make Ramadan “a month of calamity for the infidels.” The “infidels” include non-Muslims and westerners, but also Shiite Muslims and those ISIS called “apostate Muslims.” Al-Shabaab, another Islamic extremist group, threatened Kenya’s non-Muslims even before Ramadan began, All Africa reported.

The increased “threat” of terror and violence from groups like ISIS, arrests, as well as actual bombings and massacres dominated network stories during the Islamic month of Ramadan, which stretched from June 17 to July 17. However, 87 percent (61 of 70) of the network evening news stories in that time failed to mention the specific threats of Islamic extremist violence pegged to the holiday. A majority even failed to say anything that would indicate the religion of Islamic terrorists, even though their calls to “jihad” are entrenched in their religious perspective.

On June 26, Islamic extremists bombed a Shiite mosque in Kuwait, killed more than 30 people at a Tunisian beach resort. That same day, another Muslim man beheaded his boss in France and tried to blow up an American-owned factory. ISIS later took responsibility for the Tunisian massacre and the Kuwait bombing.

The ISIS call for other Muslims to join them in violence during Ramadan was not reported on a CBS or NBC evening news show until after the Kuwaiti, French and Tunisian attacks had happened. Although it reported on terror threats, ABC didn’t mention the Ramadan-specific threat once on World News.

ABC was also the network least likely to identify the religious connection/motivation for terrorism by ISIS or any other terror groups. Any identifying word indicating the religion of terrorists or potential Islamic terrorists appeared in fewer than 17 percent (4 of 24) of ABC’s World News stories during the month. That included stories focused on threats, attacks or policies related to terrorist acts by Islamic extremists (or possible extremists like the Chattanooga shooter).

On June 27, World News Tonight aired a follow up story on Tunisia, France and Kuwait. The only reference to Islam in that story referred to the religion of victims in Kuwait, where ISIS supporters bombed a Shiite mosque. Immediately after that story, there was a news brief about the increased terror threat in the U.S.

In that brief, anchor Cecilia Vega said those international attacks were “a reminder of the threat of global terrorism.” Notice, she said “global terrorism,” not “Islamic extremism” or “Islamic terrorism.”

Why Violence During Ramadan?

Although many Muslims say this kind of extremism does not represent them or their religion, ISIS, Boko Haram and other Islamic terror groups disagree. The news media have a responsibility to admit such groups claim their violence is religiously motivated.

Islamic extremists groups openly target other sects of Muslims and non-Muslim groups like Christians, who are often forced to flee, convert to Islam or die. That’s exactly why some of those groups encouraged attacking their enemies during Ramadan.

On June 24, ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani encouraged Muslims to “be keen to conquer” and be willing to suffer “martyrdom” by waging war against “infidels” during Ramadan. ISIS considers non-Muslims (especially Christians and Jews), Shiite Muslims and “apostate” Muslims to be infidels.

Adherents to Islam seek to do more for Allah during Ramadan, which means that radical Islamists who view violence as an integral part of their worship of Allah also step up their violence.

“The ISIS’ Ramadan message specifically preaches that jihad is 10 times more obligatory during Ramadan and that those who die in jihad will be rewarded by Allah ten times as much as during the rest of the year,” national security analyst and adjunct professor of Homeland Security for the Clarion Project Ryan Mauro told Fox News.

Al-Adnani had said specifically that, “Allah may increase the reward of a shahid [martyr] tenfold in Ramadan in comparison to other months,” The Daily Mail (UK) reported.

“Jihadists for a long time haven’t seen the month of Ramadan as a month of fasting, as a month of abstention, or reflection and prayer. Instead, they’ve interpreted it to be a month of war. A month of jihad,” Quilliam Foundation chairman Maajid Nawaz told BBC News. “And they look back to a certain tradition within the medieval period of Islam and its early days, all the way back to the prophet Muhammad, in fact, and they and they and they draw out tradition where there were certain battles that took place in the month of Ramadan.”

Florida: Broward County Sheriff Hires Terror-linked CAIR Leader

… as Deputy Sheriff. via CAIR Leader Nezar Hamze Is Now Deputy Sheriff | Frontpage Mag.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has its foundation in the terrorist organization Hamas. It has been named as a co-conspirator by the U.S. government for two federal trials dealing with the financing of Hamas, and it is recognized as an international terrorist group by the government of United Arab Emirates (UAE). Given this information, how is it possible that one of this group’s leaders, Nezar Hamze, could be considered for a position at one of the most prominent Sheriff’s offices in the United States? However, that is exactly what has happened.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) is the largest fully accredited Sheriff’s office in the nation. As such, having the title of Sheriff comes with much fanfare and responsibility. The current Sheriff is Scott Israel; he was elected to office in November 2012. As Sheriff, Israel has made it a point to reach out to diverse crowds, including those who could be considered enemies of the U.S. and her allies.

Broward Sheriff Scott Israel’s 2015 radical Muslim tour began this past January, when he posed for photos with Sofian Abdelaziz Zakkout and a member of Zakkout’s Miami-based AMANA group at a local mosque. Zakkout is a big supporter of Hamas. On his Facebook page, one can find Hamas logos and photos of Hamas militants and leaders, including Hamas founders Ahmed Yassin and Abdel Aziz al-Rantisi and deceased Hamas bomb maker Yehiya Ayyash.

In July 2014, Zakkout organized a pro-Hamas rally held in Downtown Miami, where the crowd chanted loudly a number of anti-Jewish and pro-Hamas slogans. Zakkout is shown on video with a huge grin on his face, as his mob repeatedly screams, “We are Hamas.” Following the rally, Zakkout wrote in Arabic on his Facebook page, “Thank God, every day we conquer the American Jews like our conquests over the Jews of Israel!”

Zakkout is also a big fan of white supremacist and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, David Duke. Zakkout has posted different links on his Facebook site to Duke videos      , including a link to Duke’s official YouTube page. In July 2010, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) condemned Zakkout’s group AMANA for featuring what it called a “vicious” David Duke video on its website. In the video, which is titled ‘No War for Israel in Iran – Keep Americans Safe,’ Duke rails against Jews and is shown shaking hands with then-Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The next stop for Sheriff Israel, on his tour, was the Islamic Foundation of South Florida (IFSF), for a June Ramadan Iftar meal. The event was sponsored by Emerge USA, an innocuously named Islamist lobbying and advocacy group that attempts to dupe politicians into attending its functions by seducing them with a “Muslim vote.”

Like he did with Zakkout, Sheriff Israel posed for photos, one of which has him standing alongside Mayor of Sunrise, Florida Mike Ryan and the co-founder and co-chairman of Emerge, Khurrum Wahid.

Wahid, a South Florida attorney, has spent years representing high-profile Muslim terrorists. They include: Rafiq Sabir, who received a 25-year prison sentence for conspiring to provide material support to al-Qaeda; Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, who was given a life sentence for being part of al-Qaeda and for plotting to assassinate President George W. Bush; Sami al-Arian who spent time in prison (and was later deported) for his activities within Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ); and Hafiz Khan, a Miami imam who received 25 years for shipping $50,000 to the Taliban explicitly to murder American troops overseas.

According to the Miami New Times, Wahid himself was placed on a federal terrorist watch list in 2011.

Another photo from the Iftar featured Sheriff Israel and IFSF Events Coordinator Abdur Rahman al-Ghani. Al-Ghani’s Facebook page is littered with anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish and Islamic supremacist language and images. In March 2013, al-Ghani posted on his Facebook site a photo of a group of American rabbis, who were meeting with President George W. Bush in the Oval Office to discuss Judaism, with the caption, “Every President has end [sic] up like this. This is the power of Zionism in our U.S. Government.” In December 2012, he wrote on Facebook, “Zionist/Israelis are not holy people. They are demonic and the most evil on earth.”

In April 2012, al-Ghani posted on his Facebook page a graphic depicting an American flag, stating “Worlds [sic] Number One Terrorist Organization.” In March 2012, he posted a graphic stating, “ISLAM WILL DOMINATE THE WORLD.” He wrote next to it, “Yes, Allah (SWT) has Decreed [sic] we will overtake the world in numbers…” And in February 2012, al-Ghani posted a graphic of the CIA logo spattered in blood with a caption that read in part, “You wipe out the organization that is solely responsible for every terrorist act committed since it’s [sic] creation. You wipe out the CIA.”

Next to the photo of Sheriff Israel with al-Ghani, Emerge wrote, “Thanks again to IFSF and Abdur Rahman al-Ghani.”

The third stop of Sheriff Israel’s radical Muslim tour, which took place this month, led him to the Darul Uloom Mosque, located in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Darul Uloom has ties to a number of high-profile al-Qaeda terrorists.

“Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla was a student at Darul Uloom. His teacher was the current imam at the mosque, Maulana Shafayat Mohamed. Padilla was sentenced to 21 years in prison for providing material support to terrorists and for conspiracy to murder, kidnap and maim individuals overseas.

Now-deceased al-Qaeda commander and al-Qaeda Global Operations Chief Adnan el-Shukrijumah was a prayer leader at the mosque. In 2010, Shukrijumah was indicted by New York authorities for plotting suicide bombings in the city’s subway system. His father, Gulshair el-Shukrijumah, who was a translator for the spiritual leader of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, “Blind Shaikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman, taught classes at Darul Uloom. One of Gulshair’s students, Imran Mandhai, was sentenced to twelve years in prison for plotting to blow up strategic targets in South Florida. Mandhai was deported to Pakistan this past May.

It has further been alleged that one of the 19 hijackers from the September 11 attacks prayed at Darul Uloom.

The photo of Shafayat Mohamed with Deedat, whom Shafayat Mohamed said he “had a good relationship” with, was taken in Durban, South Africa, at what was then named the Bin Laden Center. Deedat, who according to the New York Times was “a vocal anti-Semite and ardent backer of Osama bin Laden,” personally received millions of dollars from Bin Laden for the center.

Shafayat Mohamed, himself, was thrown off a number of boards in Broward County for his outspokenness against homosexuals. In February 2005, an article written by him was published on the Darul Uloom website, entitled ‘Tsunami: Wrath of God,’ claiming that homosexual sex caused the 2004 Indonesian tsunami. He stated, “I have been pondering over the reasons for the recent Tsunami, ever since the incident took place… a time when thousands would have been enjoying themselves during the holidays in the ‘GAY PARADISE’… [A]fter days of pondering, I was able to find a major similarity with the Tsunami and Sodom & Gomorrah.”

Sheriff Israel arrived at Darul Uloom to deliver a Ramadan message to the crowd; he did so, before being warmly embraced by the imam, Shafayat Mohamed. But the real message was sent by the individual who was introducing the Sheriff. It was Deputy Sheriff Nezar Hamze. This was an alarming and surreal surprise, as Hamze has been a leader of a local chapter of the Hamas-associated CAIR for the past five years. Hamze is the Regional Operations Director of CAIR-Florida. Previously, he served as CAIR-Florida’s Executive Director.

CAIR was established in June 1994 as being part of the American Palestine Committee, an umbrella organization acting as a terrorist enterprise run by then-global Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook. Marzook, at the time, was based in the U.S and currently operates out of Egypt as a spokesman for Hamas. In 2007 and 2008, amidst two federal trials, the U.S. government named CAIR a co-conspirator in the raising of millions of dollars for Hamas.

Under a graphic of the World Trade Center in flames, CAIR posted to its national website a link to the Hamas charity, Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF), asking its followers to donate money. The group also asked its followers to donate to the al-Qaeda charity, Global Relief Foundation (GRF).

In November 2014, just eight months ago, along with ISIS, al-Qaeda and Boko Haram, CAIR was named a terrorist organization by United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Hamze has his own anti-social and dangerous issues, apart from being a CAIR leader.

In December 2010, outside a fundraiser for then-Member of Parliament of the United Kingdom, George Galloway, being held at the Islamic Center of South Florida (ICOSF), in Pompano Beach, Hamze was caught on video repeatedly refusing to denounce Hamas, when given numerous chances to do so.

As well, in June 2007, after his cousin, Abdelaziz Bilal Hamze, murdered a woman, running her over with his minivan, Nezar tried to make excuses for his cousin. Abdelaziz had dragged her body for several miles down the road – her body parts scattered throughout – and then attempted to flee the U.S. to Lebanon, where the Hamze family is from. Nezar was quoted by the media, saying, while his cousin “made some bad decisions,” he “may have been a little threatened.”

All of this would seem to make someone like Nezar Hamze ineligible to serve in any capacity within law enforcement and would render his designation as Deputy Sheriff untenable. Yet, there was Hamze, at Darul Uloom, in full uniform with firearm at his side.

During his talk, Sheriff Israel said of Hamze that he was a “friend” and a “phenomenal Deputy Sheriff.” He said that Hamze was with him because they are “on the same mission,” that they are “like-minded,” and because, “as a man who studies Islam and as a Muslim, he’s gonna find out information that we can’t. He’s gonna be able to bring information back to the community and take information from the community and bring to us.”

Can Sheriff Israel, the first Jewish Sheriff in Broward County, seriously believe that Nezar Hamze – a man who has spent years as a leader of a fanatic Muslim organization; a man who repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas when given numerous chances; a man who tried to make excuses for his murderer cousin, after his cousin had willfully ran over a woman, dragged her body for several miles, and then tried to flee the country – should serve as a Deputy Sheriff in one of the most prominent Sheriff’s offices in the nation?!!

By employing Nezar Hamze, Sheriff Scott Israel has compromised not only the Broward Sheriff’s office, but the security of the entire county and by extension U.S. national security. And with the intelligence information made available to someone in Hamze’s position and the misleading information Hamze has exhibited he is capable of providing, who knows how much damage this could cause!

If the situation is not corrected and Nezar Hamze is not dismissed from his position immediately, Sheriff Israel should resign from office immediately.

If you wish to contact Sheriff Israel, you can do so by sending an e-mail to: ask_the_sheriff@sheriff.org, or you can call the Broward Sheriff’s Office, at 954-764-4357. Please be respectful in any and all communications with this office.

New Jersey: Even the mannequins wear hijab in Union City

Creeping along. via Gates of Vienna.

A reader in New Jersey just sent in the photos below, which were taken recently in Union City, New Jersey. He says: “Union City electronics store — even the mannequins have to wear hijab.”

“The most interesting thing that this is a mostly Hispanic neighborhood with a sprinkle of Hasidic Jews.”

As you might surmise from its nickname — “Havana on the Hudson” — the predominant ethnic group in Union City is Hispanic, followed by white and black, in that order. There’s no mention of Muslims in the wiki, although the “Asian” population is listed as about 2%.

Obviously the owner of the electronics store wants to appeal to a certain niche demographic within his customer base, and has designed his display window accordingly.


Creeping Sharia readers should be aware that the Union City-area was infiltrated years ago. Just a few minutes south on Kennedy Blvd., in Jersey City, the 1993 World Trade Center terrorists lived and plotted jihad. They never left. Journal Square was infiltrated too.

One year earlier, Muslims bought a historical building and converted it from a Cuban Community Center to a mosque…replacing original artwork (cross or angels?) with their supremacist Arabic.

Abercrombie & Fitch forced to pay $25,000 to Muslim litigation jihadist

She’s a culture jihadist too…as many Muslims are, working to change American culture to be more Islamic. via Abercrombie & Fitch pays $25,000 to settle headscarf lawsuit 

Clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch has agreed to pay approximately $25,000 to a woman who was denied a job because she wore a Muslim headscarf during her interview.

The settlement follows a June Supreme Court ruling saying that the popular clothing chain was required to offer an accommodation to employees who wear headscarves for religious reasons, regardless of whether or not they ask specifically in advance.

Abercrombie defended its “look policy” during oral arguments, saying that questioning an applicant about religious beliefs was overly personal and the burden of seeking a religious accommodation under Title VII on the 1964 Civil Rights Act should have fallen on the applicant.

Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority in the 8-1 decision, said that “an applicant need only show that his need for an accommodation was a motivating factor in the employer’s decision” for it to be unlawful.

“An employer may not make an applicant’s religious practice, confirmed or otherwise, a factor in employment decisions,” Scalia added.

Reuters reported that on Monday the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, pursuant with the Supreme Court’s decision, dismissed the retailer’s appeal.

Abercrombie & Fitch amended its “look policy” before the court’s decision to allow employees to wear headscarves.
