Minnesota leads the U.S. in recruiting ISIS terrorists

ISIS, al Shabaab, al Qaeda, HAMAS, CAIR – they all have one thing in common. via Minnesota leads U.S. in recruiting ISIL terrorists, federal report finds – StarTribune.com  h/t , Jihad Watch

Minnesota leads the nation in the number of people who have left or sought to leave the country to fight with terrorists aligned with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Syria, according to a scathing congressional report that says the U.S. and western countries have failed to disrupt the flow of combatants to the Middle East.

Released Tuesday by the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, the report specifically cites two Somali-American Minnesotans who joined or tried to join ISIL, highlighting its online recruiting success through peer-to-peer recruiting that relies on social media and sophisticated online messaging techniques.

Young fighters from at least 19 states have tried to join terrorists in Syria since the start of that country’s civil war in 2011. Minnesota recruits made up 26 percent of the sample of 58 cases reviewed by the committee’s bipartisan task force. California and New York had the second most recruits, with each state making up 12 percent, according to findings.

“This report is alarming and it’s really very worrisome,” said Sadik Warfa, deputy director of the Global Somali Diaspora based in Minneapolis. “I worry about the stigma and the prospect of our community being marginalized. But in the end, it’s up to us as Somali-Americans to really change our image. And as Minnesotans, we need to be asking what can we do to put these kinds of people into our mainstream here instead of over there.”

More than 250 Americans have attempted or succeeded in reaching Syria and Iraq to fight with terrorist groups, intelligence officials estimate. “We have largely failed to stop Americans from traveling overseas to join jihadists,” the task force declared. “A handful of suspects were stopped in other countries, but it appears the majority — 85 percent — still managed to evade American law enforcement on its way to the conflict zone.”

 The task force said it could identify only 28 cases in which federal authorities stopped suspects before they left for the Middle East. Eight of those involved Minnesotans who conspired since March 2014 to leave the U.S. for Syria but who were stopped by FBI agents. Those men, all Somali-Americans, are in custody. Three have pleaded guilty in recent weeks to conspiring to join ISIL.

Those targeted for recruiting tend to be men in their early 20s, although more than 30 American women have joined or attempted to join ISIL. Among them was Yusra Ismail, 20, of St. Paul, who last year was charged with misusing a passport to travel to Syria, where her family says she now is working as a nurse.

“Today, we are witnessing the largest global convergence of jihadists in history,” the task force noted. “Individuals from more than 100 countries have migrated to the conflict zone in Syria and Iraq since 2011. Over 25,000 foreign fighters have traveled to the battlefield to enlist.”

Locally, the FBI office in the Twin Cities recently added a fourth anti-terrorism squad to its intelligence operations related to people in the Twin Cities interested in becoming jihadists. At the same time — and separately — the office is deeply involved in building better community relations with the Somali community, pledging that those programs and relationships will never dovetail into intelligence gathering operations.

In Washington, U.S. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn, said the report “only underscores the urgent need for adequate resources to fight terrorist recruitment.” He noted the need to build stronger community outreach programs while refraining from stereotyping. “It’s important that we don’t indiscriminately target members of one community,” he said.

U.S. authorities have interdicted only a fraction of the hundreds of Americans who sought to travel to conflict zones in Syria and Iraq, researchers found, and several dozen of those managed to get back into the U.S. The nation still lacks a national strategy to combat terrorist travel, the report found.

“There is currently no comprehensive global database of foreign fighter names,” the report stated. “Instead, countries including the United States rely on a patchwork system for swapping extremist identities, increasing the odds foreign fighters will slip through the cracks.”

How about starting with a database that already exists – for example, the passport and visa databases? Or perhaps the no-fly database?

As for fighting terrorist recruitment, Franken should be adamant about halting resettlement of Muslims to Minnesota, shutting down the jihad-recruiting mosques and Muslim businesses, and deporting large numbers of terror-linked Muslims in his state. But worse than doing nothing, he aids and abets jihad with his “refraining from stereotyping” rhetoric.

Kansas Univ. Law School Teaching Sharia


A watered-down version anyway, via Defining the Narrative

When Kansas debated and passed American Laws for American/Kansas Courts in 2012, one of the arguments against it was “It’s a solution looking for a problem”.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) used the same mantra against the Missouri Legislature this year, which narrowly failed to over-ride Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of SB267 on Wednesday according to this article at Missouri Lawyers Weekly.  (H/T Creeping Sharia)

The Kansas City, Missouri attorney Ahsan Latif has hung out his shingle specializing in Sharia Law. Little surprise here considering that just a few miles to the West at Kansas University Law School there are classes that teach Sharia to aspiring young law students.  The textbook reads like you would expect; revised history and a sanitized theological discussion, soothing the non-inquisitive mind and ignorant spirit that its just “freedom of religion” and no different than Jewish Halakhah or Catholic Canon.  Of course, the sanitized Sharia version leaves out all the gory stuff like dismemberment for thieves and pow’s, execution for apostates (o8.1; “When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.”), homosexuals (p17.1 “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.”), wine-bibbers (p14.2-1, “Scourge whoever drinks wine…if he drinks it a fourth time kill him.”) atheists (o9.0 “The Caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim.”), and anyone of the Jewish or Christian persuasion who does not “submit” to the rule of Islam.  Sharia also obliges the Muslim adherent, male or female, to circumcision (e4.3), and despite Muslim claims to the contrary, there is no age limit for marriage of girls.  A high percentage in the Islamic world are given (for dowry) in marriage by their fathers under the age of 16, many before puberty, such as the recent case in Yemen resulting in the death of the 8 yr old child.  This is not uncommon in Sharia controlled states. But the sanitized version will treat this as an outlier, a regional or custom related practice, when in reality under sharia, the family determines the age.

Touted as mainly for use by Muslims for “family matters”, the sanitized version also leaves out the fact that a woman’s testimony is worth half the value of a man’s and she rates behind any male heirs who get the first shares of the estate right after the mosque,  and a rape victim is generally to blame for her plight and she could be shamed, outcast or worse.  It is not uncommon for rape victims to be beaten or stoned for adultery, fornication, and/or “honor killed”, under sharia as discussed in this article by Hasan Mahmud.

The Sharia that is taught at KU and is shown to the general public also whitewashes Jihad as the “inner struggle”, ignoring the fact that this one line is cherry picked from 8 pages of directives concerning the Jihad (Holy War, o9.0) “to war against non-Muslims…signifying warfare to establish the religion (Islam)…” and presents Hadith’s like Bukhari quoting Muhammad as saying, “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat . If they say it, they have saved their blood and possession from me, except for the rights of Islam over them.”  The remaining headings under “Jihad” are titled: “The Obligatory Character of Jihad”,  “Who is Obliged to Fight in Jihad”, “The Objectives of Jihad” (“The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…[and] fights all other people until they become Muslim.”), “The Rules of Warfare”, “Truces”, “The Spoils of Battle”. This section on “Jihad” is immediately followed by, “Non-Muslim Subjects of the Islamic State (Dhimmi)”.  Now I ask you, does that sound like that very personal, struggle within ones own self to submit to Allah and maintain one’s faith?

One other important aspect to Sharia is that it codifies lying, or “deception”, in order to advance the cause of Islam (r8.2) and stay out of trouble with one’s wife!  Aside from the obvious advantage of keeping the wife deceived, “Taqiyya” (deception) is employed especially when Muslims are outnumbered, as a minority of a host society, in order to gain the trust and deceive the host, until a majority of Muslims can use politics, education, or force to overpower it.  Sound familiar yet?  Click here for more on Sharia.

[Shaira quotes and references from: “Reliance of the Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”, by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri, translated by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, accepted by Islamic Scholars around the world as the authoritative English translation]

You see, the objective of Islam is not to be equal, just as CAIR co-Founder Omar Ahmad stated, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

Then there is the proposed “Blasphemy Law” that is being called for by Muslims around the world, which would make it a crime against humanity to criticize Islam.  Immediately after Barack Obama gave his infamous speech, declaring “The future does not belong to those who would slander the prophet” at the 2012 United Nations General Assembly, in the wake of the Benghazi terrorist attack (which he and Hillary Clinton blamed on an anti-Muhammad video), Muslims from around the world and closer to home made the hue and cry for freedom of speech to be made criminal.

Dhimmitude follows jihad. via 15-year-old gunman of Iraqi-Kurdish background visited Parramatta Mosque before shooting rampage

THE gunman who shot dead a police staffer was a 15-year-old who had visited Parramatta Mosque on his way to commit murder.

The teenager, a naturalised Australian of Iraqi-Kurdish background who arrived with his family from Iran, had walked to the police headquarters in Charles Street from his home in north Parramatta before opening fire on a civilian police employee.

The victim was identified as Curtis Cheng, a 17-year veteran of the police finance department, Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said today.

Mr Cheng — a father-of-two, of a son and a daughter — was shot in point blank range by the teen as he left work yesterday just after 4.30pm.

Speaking at a press conference today, Mr Scipione said the attack was “politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism”.

Police are today trying to trackdown the teenage killer’s family who may have left the area.

Witnesses have told The Saturday Telegraph that after shooting dead the civilian employee, the teenager ran up and down in front of police headquarters waving his handgun in the air and shouting: “Allah. Allah.”

It was then that two special constables on security duty ran from the police building and shot the gunman dead.

Police are trying to find out who radicalised the teenager.

He had no identification on him and it is understood to be his brother who rang police and said he thought he knew who the gunman was.

The chairman of Parramatta Mosque, Neil El-Kadomi, said he was contacted by police on Friday night and shown a photograph of the gunman who entered the mosque before the attack.

The Sunni mosque is about 15 minutes walk from the State Crime Command headquarters on Charles Street.

Ban Sunni mosques, ban Muslim immigration.

Seven News said Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar was at a talk given by Hizb ut-Tahrir at nearby Parramatta Mosque just hours before he donned a black robe and killed finance worker Curtis Cheng outside NSW Police headquarters in Parramatta.

It has also emerged that the shooter’s sister flew out of Australia on a flight bound for the Middle East 24-hours before the terror attack.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, a spokesman for Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia, Uthman Badar would not comment on the existence of any links between Farhad and his organisation.

It is also understood Farhad’s sister Shadi went missing on Thursday and flew out of Australia on a Singapore Airlines flight bound for Istanbul and may be attempting to reach Iraq or Syria.

Her family told police she had taken all her belongings.

“NSW Police yesterday executed a warrant at a mosque in Parramatta,” police said in a statement Sunday.

“The warrant was undertaken by arrangement with leadership at the mosque who provided full assistance to police at all times.”

“Yesterday, Prime Minister Turnbull and (NSW) Premier Mike Baird had a long conversation with not only… relevant agencies but also leaders in the Muslim community,” Bishop told the ABC on Sunday.

“We’re certainly reaching out to the leaders of the Muslim community but working with the families at a grassroots local level.

Obama deporting Iraqi Christians who fled ISIS seeking religious asylum in US

Source: 22 Iraqi Christians who fled ISIS and seeking religious asylum in US to be rejected | Daily Mail Online

Iraqi Christians fleeing persecution at the hands of ISIS are being turned away at the American border despite having family sponsors – as thousands of Muslims are granted asylum.

At least 27 of the targeted minority, known as Chaldeans, have been held in detention in San Diego since entering through the Mexican border this spring.

Now, after months of waiting, 22 have denied asylum and sent back across the Atlantic to Europe, as another five await a verdict.

In total, America had accepted just 727 fleeing Christians at the start of 2015 – a fraction of the 4,200 Muslims granted asylum – and few since.

While statistically there are far fewer Christians than Muslims in the region, Lisa Jones, executive director of Christian Freedom International, told Daily Mail Online the minority group appear to face greater obstacles to reach safety.

‘It makes no sense,’ Jones said.

‘These are people from a Christian culture like our own that needs protection from ISIS. It is harder for Christians to move around Iraq and Syria to even get the chance to seek asylum.

Obama has made bold claims to support refugee crises in Europe and protect persecuted citizens in the Middle East.

The Islamic State has waged war on the Christian communities dotted across Iraq and Syria, forcing them to convert to be in with a slim chance of escaping execution.

However, United States policy dictates that they require proof of being directly persecuted.

‘While many more Muslims are granted asylum over here, Christians are being systematically exterminated.’

According to the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, five of the group have been charged with lying on their application forms by failing to declare that they have German passports.

The five criminally charged have been identified as Eva and Thamer Sadek Eshoa, Reta Marrogi, Valentina Adil Slewa Zori and Devid Benjamen Nooh Yako. They face five years in jail and a $250,000 fine.

The rest of the group, who also had family sponsors, have been directed towards Germany and Sweden, the hot spots for refugees in Europe.

‘They have family members, also Christians, who are willing to take them in,’ Jones told Daily Mail Online. ‘It used to be that that would be a huge help. It’s not clear why they, of all people, are being turned away while others are accepted.’

Muslims Persecute Christian Refugees …in Germany

“Where we are, there is the Sharia, there is our law.”

Source: Muslims Persecute Christian Refugees in Germany | Frontpage Mag

If you hate the Islamic State, why take in Muslim refugees to repeat its crimes on European soil? Taking in Muslim refugees only perpetuates the Muslim persecution of Christians. Muslim migrants have already drowned Christians seeking asylum. They are persecuting Christian refugees who have made it to Europe.

Said went across Turkey on foot. He never thought that his problems would only be starting once he made it to Germany.

“In Iran, the Revolutionary Guards have arrested my brother in a house church. I fled the Iranian secret police, because I thought in Germany I can finally freely live by my religion,” says Said. “But in the home for asylum seekers, I can’t even openly admit that I am a Christian.”

Mainly Syrian refugees, mostly devout Sunni Muslims, live in the home. “They wake me before dawn during Ramadan and say that I should eat before the sun comes up. If I refuse, they say, I’m a, kuffar ‘, an unbeliever. They spit at me,” says Said. “They treat me like an animal. And threaten to kill me.”

Said says he has called the Security Service which not interested in his problems. “They are also all Muslims.”

In the community room of the Evangelical Lutheran Church Trinity in Berlin-Steglitz pastor Gottfried Martens sits with a stack of papers…

Around 600 Afghans and Iranians belong to his church. Most of them he himself baptized. “Almost all have big problems in their homes,” says Martens.

“Devout Muslims teach there the view: Where we are, there is the Sharia, there is our law.”

In the kitchen, Christians can not prepare their own food. Those who do not pray five times a day toward Mecca, are being bullied. “Above all, Christians who have converted from Islam have to suffer as a minority,” says Martens. “And they ask the question: Will we have to hide ourselves as Christians in the future in this country?”…

In Hemer, Algerian asylum seekers attacked an Eritrean and his pregnant wife. Both wore their baptismal cross around their necks. One struck the Eritreans with a glass bottle.

A young Syrian in Giessen reported threats. He is concerned that among the refugees fare ollowers of the terrorist group Islamic State of (IS) are. “They shout Quranic verses. These are words that shouts the IS before they cut off people’s heads. I can not stay here. I am a Christian,” he says.

Especially dramatic is the case of a Christian family from Iraq, which was housed in a refugee camp in the Bavarian Freising. The father told a TV crew of the Bayerischer Rundfunk of beatings and threats by Syrian Islamists. “They yelled at my wife and beat my child. They say.. “We will kill you and drink your blood” The family lived in the rooms of the home as prisoners – until they no longer stand it and returned to Iraq.”

“One would have to protect the family,” says Simon Jacob of the Central Council of the Eastern Christians. Stories like these no longer surprise him. “I know of a lot of reports of Christian refugees who are under attack. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg,” says Jacob. “The number of unreported cases is high.”…

“Often the aggressors are Afghans or Pakistanis who are often more Islamist than many Syrians and Iraqis,” says Max Klingberg of the International Society for Human Rights, who has been active in refugee aid for fifteen years. He assumes that the violence in the refugee centers will continue to increase. “We must rid ourselves of the illusion that all those who arrive here, are human rights activists. Among the new arrivals is a not small number at least as intense as the Muslim Brotherhood.”

UK: Muslims drive family from home after converting from Islam to Christianity

Religion of peace? via Family claim they are being driven out of their home after converting from Islam to Christianity – Mirror Online

A family who converted from Islam to Christianity say they are being driven out of their home for the SECOND TIME by neighbours who accuse them of blasphemy.

Nissar Hussain, his wife Kubra and their six children claim they have become “prisoners in their own home” as neighbours attack them in the street, smash their car windscreens and throw eggs at their windows.

“Our lives have been sabotaged and this shouldn’t happen in the United Kingdom,” Nissar said.

“We live in a free democratic society and what they are doing to us is abhorrent.”

Leena, 14, said her friends told her: “Our parents say we mustn’t mix with you because you are a convert.”

Nissar said the experience left her “heartbroken” and made her “feel like a second class citizen”.

This is the second time the family claim to have been targeted.

Nissar ended up spending 12 hours in police cells earlier this year after getting into a scrap with a man he claims “threatened and confronted” his wife.

One of his neighbours was convicted at Bradford Crown Court of a public order offence after one of Hussain’s children recorded him making threats in the street.

But Nissar thinks more must be done for police to recognise the issue as a religious hate crime .

He says he has paid out £5,000 over the past year after his car windscreen was smashed six times.

The family are now looking lo leave their family home city of Bradford.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “We are aware of an ongoing matter involving Mr Hussain and are working closely with partners to resolve this situation.

“All reports of crime are taken seriously and are investigated thoroughly.’

US mayors sign on to U.N. Global Police Force…to fight ISIS

Meanwhile, Putin is actually fighting them. A better way to prevent Islamic extremism is to prevent potential Islam “extremists” from entering the United States. via NoisyRoom.net

Yesterday, Loretta Lynch announced before the United Nations that the Attorney General’s Office, in collaboration with several US Cities will for a global law enforcement initiative called the Strong Cities Network. This is the implementation of UN rules and laws on US soil bypassing Congress and circumventing the Constitution.

Launch of Strong Cities Network to Strengthen Community Resilience Against Violent Extremism

The Strong Cities Network will launch on Sept. 29, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. EDT, following the LeadersSummit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism.  Welcoming remarks will be offered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York City, who will also introduce a Keynote address by U.S. Attorney General Lynch.

Orwellian to say the least. A hard-core Muslim and a hard-core socialist leading this effort? What idiot would sign up for this? Atlanta, Denver, Minneapolis, New York City are among those participating in the one-world, global police force.

The Strong Cities Network is run by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD), a London-based ‘think-and-do’ tank with a long-standing track record of working to prevent violent extremism across all forms.

The ISD is full of Muslims and pro-Islam “progressives” – see their members here.
