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.

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.

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

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.

Arizona: Muslim Arrested for Recruiting New York Student to Islamic State

Ahmed Mohammed El Gammal, aka Jammie Gammal, 42, of Avondale, Arizona, was indicted today for providing and conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization, as well as for aiding and abetting the receipt of military-type training from ISIL and conspiring to receive such training.

“Ahmed Mohammed El Gammal is charged with conspiring to provide and providing material support to ISIL,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.  “The National Security Division’s highest priority is counterterrorism, and we will continue to pursue justice against those who seek to provide material support to designated foreign terrorist organizations.”

“As alleged, Ahmed Mohammed el Gammal actively touted online his support for ISIL and its terrorist ways, ultimately meeting and assisting a New York college student to travel to Syria to obtain military training from ISIL,” said U.S. Attorney Bharara.  “Individuals like Gammal who allegedly serve as facilitators for ISIL fuel the hatred and radicalization that keep terrorist organizations like ISIL alive.”

“As alleged, Gammal helped a college student in New York receive terrorist training in Syria through a contact in Turkey, in order to support ISIL,” said Assistant Director in Charge Rodriguez.  “These relationships were allegedly made and solidified through the internet while Gammal was in Arizona.  This is another example of how social media is utilized for nefarious and criminal purposes around the world.  The identification of the conspiracy, and arrest today, demonstrate how federal and local law enforcement continue to work together to mitigate such threats globally and protect the United States.”

As alleged in the indictment returned today and the complaint unsealed yesterday in the Southern District of New York:

In August 2014, a 24-year-old New York City resident (CC-1) learned via social media that El Gammal had posted social media comments that supported ISIL.  Minutes later, CC-1 contacted El Gammal.  Over the next several months, CC-1 and El Gammal continued corresponding over the Internet, although CC-1 deleted many of these exchanges.

In the midst of these communications, in October 2014, El Gammal traveled to Manhattan, New York, where CC-1 was enrolled in college, and contacted and met with CC-1.  While in New York City, El Gammal also contacted another co-conspirator (CC-2), who lived in Turkey, about CC-1’s plans to travel to the Middle East.  El Gammal later provided CC-1 with social media contact information for CC-2.  Thereafter, El Gammal and CC-2 had multiple social media exchanges about CC-1 traveling to the Middle East.  In addition, CC-1 began communicating with CC-2, introducing himself as a friend of “Gammal’s.”

In late January 2015, CC-1 abruptly left New York City for Istanbul.  After CC-1 arrived in Turkey, El Gammal continued to communicate with him over the Internet, providing advice on traveling toward Syria and on meeting with CC-2.  After CC-1 arrived in Syria, he received military-type training from ISIL between early February and at least early May 2015.

On May 7, 2015, CC-1 reported to El Gammal that “everything [was] going according to plan.”

El Gammal is charged with one count of providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization and one count of conspiring to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison; one count of receiving military-type training from a designated foreign terrorist organization, which carries a mandatory sentence of 10 years in prison; and one count of conspiring to receive military-type training from a designated foreign terrorist organization, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison.  The maximum potential sentences in this case are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as the defendant’s sentence, if any, will be determined by a judge.

El Gammal was arrested on Aug. 24, 2015, in Avondale, and presented in federal court in the District of Arizona, pursuant to a criminal complaint.  The case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos of the Southern District of New York.

Muslim terrorist arrested for 1996 Khobar Towers bombing that killed 19 Americans

…and wounded almost 500 people.  via Ahmed al-Mughassil, suspect in 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, arrested

A man suspected in the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers residence at a U.S. military base in Saudi Arabia has been captured, a U.S. official said Wednesday.

Ahmed al-Mughassil, described by the FBI in 2001 as the head of the military wing of Saudi Hezbollah, is suspected of leading the attack that killed 19 U.S. service personnel and wounded almost 500 people. The June 25, 1996, bombing at Khobar Towers, a military housing complex, was the deadliest such attack targeting U.S. forces since the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marines’ barracks in Beirut that killed 241 American servicemen.

Saudi paper Asharq Alawsat, which first reported the development, said he was arrested in Beirut and transferred to Riyadh.

The Saudi Interior Ministry had no immediate comment. The U.S. official spoke on grounds of anonymity because this person was not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

Al-Mughassil, also known as Abu Omran, is one of 13 people named in a 2001 indictment in Alexandria, Virginia, in connection with the bombing. Charges include murder of federal employees and bombing resulting in death. None of the 13 has yet been brought to court to face charges, according to court documents.

The lead prosecutor listed in court records from 2001 is James Comey, now the FBI director.

In the Khobar attack, militants parked a fuel trailer truck just outside the shallow perimeter of the apartment complex, 85 feet away from one of the eight-story buildings. The blast demolished one side of the building, leaving a massive crater.

The U.S. later moved its Air Force contingent to the Prince Sultan Air Base, a vast compound in a remote stretch of desert south of the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

A U.S. federal grand jury indictment named 13 Saudis and one Lebanese man in connection with the bombing, saying they were part of the Saudi Hezbollah extremist group. That group was founded by members of the desert kingdom’s Shiite minority who fled into exile in the 1980s to escape what they said was persecution by the kingdom’s Sunni majority.

The 2001 indictment placed heavy blame on Iran for nurturing the attack but stopped short of mentioning any Iranians by name or linking them directly to Khobar. However, in 2006, U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth ruled the Iranian government financed the bombing, ordering it to pay $254 million to the attack’s victims. Iran repeatedly has denied being involved.
