Independence Day and Jihad Throughout Islamic History

via Blog: A perfect Islamic storm looming large on the horizon.

By Sonia Bailley

The perfect storm of events for an Islamic terror attack is brewing for July 4th this year.  The Obama administration and Western leaders are failing to report the truth about Islam and the significance of this date.  It was on the 17th of Ramadan, which just happens to precisely coincide this year with America’s Independence Day, that the greatest and most significant battle in Islamic history took place: the Battle of Badr in 624 AD.  This battle marked the first significant victory for Islam, as well as the beginning of Mohammed’s reign of terror.

Dates are significant for Islamic terrorists.  The date of September 11 was chosen by Islamic terrorists to inflict a horrible carnage on the West because in Islam, that day is remembered as a day of humiliation and defeat: in 1683, the Islamic armies were defeated at the gates of Vienna, and in 1697, they met their final defeat at Belgrade.

If ever there was a date to be remembered and commemorated in Islam, it’s the 17th of Ramadan.  What makes this battle so special to most Muslims is its spiritual significance.  The Koran discusses how Allah and his angels helped the early Muslims win the battle.  This is most certainly a date that the Islamic State holds close to the heart, especially since Mohammed’s victory solidified his position as ruler of the first Islamic State in Medina.  It is a date to be memorialized, underscored by its anniversary on the U.S.’s Independence Day, in ways jihadists know best.

The 17th of Ramadan was the time when Mohammed mandated the killing of captives in battle, and this action is emulated by the Islamic State, as Mohammed is considered the ideal model in Islam for mankind to follow.  It was the time when a simple preacher morphed into a vengeful warlord, eliminating all Jewish tribes once living in Saudi Arabia and changing the way of life for people living in the Arabian Peninsula (now Saudi Arabia) and afterward Asia.  It is a date that Westerners should be made aware of and become familiar with.

In addition to the upcoming commemoration of the Battle of Badr on July 4 of this year, the Islamic State has two other significant events to laud.  First, this summer marks the Islamic State’s first-year anniversary as a self-proclaimed terrorist state.  Second, this month of Ramadan is a time to wage jihad, as Mohammed did.  “Ramadan will have lots of surprises,” the Islamic State promised before the Tunisia, France, and Kuwait attacks.

“This may be potentially the most complex counterterror overlay for this event, ever,” affirmed NYPD’s deputy commissioner of intelligence and counterterrorism, John Miller.  Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge defines this heightened threat environment as “one of the most severe we have seen in a decade.”

Do U.S. law enforcement and counterterrorism agencies or the media have any perception of the groundbreaking victory Muslims had in their first major battle against non-Muslims that coincides with July 4 of this year?  Perhaps the extremely high volume of social media Islamic terrorist chatter from overseas to the U.S. to wage jihad on U.S. soil can be attributed to the anniversary of the Battle of Badr falling on July 4.

The West can be sure that ISIS will make good on its promise to kill and maim even more non-believers in celebration of these three events, not to mention a tenfold reward in Paradise for any jihadist killed in action during Ramadan.

The perfect Islamic storm is brewing on the horizon as the Obama and other Western administrations tiptoe around Islam in refusing to link it with terrorism or to call the Islamic State Islamic.  Western civilization will tilt, tip over, and eventually capsize unless citizens become more politically engaged in policymaking and more aware of the Islamic storms that face them so that these storms can be better assessed and properly tackled.  Citizenry must stop relying on leaders when those leaders will not even admit the nature of the jihadist enemy.

As Stephen Coughlin writes, “the nature of today’s jihadist enemies can only be understood within the context of their declared strategic doctrine to dominate the world. Just as we ignored Mein Kampf ‘to our great detriment’ prior to World War II, so we are on the verge of suffering a similar fate today.”  The ironically dual anniversary of July 4 and the Battle of Badr representing two antithetical ideologies is looming large.  Be informed.  Be prepared.

Ramadan: ‘They leave the mosque with a will to slaughter and kill’

Muslims proudly note that Ramadan is the month of jihad and victory over the infidels. via ‘They Leave the Mosque With Hatred in Their Eyes’

Middle East expert explains that Ramadan is ‘victory month’ and is the wrong time for any gestures.

Middle East expert Dr. David Bokai explained Tuesday on Arutz Sheva that Ramadan is traditionally a month of violence and is the wrong time to offer any kind of gestures to Muslims.

“Look at all of the terror attacks in Kuwait, France and here in Israel,” he explained. “They carry out terror attacks against all of the enemies of Islam. Ramadan is defined as the month of victory. All of the great victories of Mohammed and the expulsion of the Crusaders took place on that month. That is why Ramadan turns into a month of terror and violence worldwide.”

Dr. Bokai noted that Israel makes the same mistake every year, regarding Ramadan. “It’s amazing that we don’t learn, and we make gestures for Ramadan every year,” he said. “It drives me mad and makes me nauseous. This is not a month for making gestures, but for placing limitations. When you offer them gestures, you get terror and violence. In this month one should toughen and harden policy.”

The imam’s sermons also inflame the spirits, the expert added. “You see people from the middle class upward who are influenced by the serrmons at the mosques during Ramadan. After a 20-minute Friday sermon, they leave with a will to slaughter and kill. That is what characterizes Islam – it’s a religion of murder and not of peace. Its culture says that the entire world must be conquered.”

Seattle Muslim charged with terrorism after jihad attacks kill 4 Americans

This Muslim jihadist confessed almost a year ago. The media ignored the story – the only time they seem to ignore the killing of gays and blacks is when the killer is Muslim. via Seattle man charged with murder, terrorism in New Jersey | KOMO News. h/t Ninja

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – A Seattle man was indicted on murder and terrorism charges Thursday for allegedly shooting a New Jersey college student last year in a fit of rage over the U.S. government’s role in the Middle East, which authorities said is the first time a terror charge has been brought in the state in connection with a murder case.

Ali Muhammad Brown, 30, fatally shot Brendan Tevlin while the 19-year-old was stopped at a traffic light in northern New Jersey, authorities said.

Brown also faces three aggravated murder charges in Seattle, where authorities said last year the killings were part of a crusade to punish the U.S. government for its foreign policies.

Authorities said in court documents filed in Seattle last year that Brown described himself to detectives after his New Jersey arrest as a strict Muslim who was angry with the U.S. government’s role in Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan because of the death of innocent civilians and children.

“The defendant was on a bloody crusade, executing four innocent men … with the same murder weapon, over the course of approximately two months, and all under the common and single scheme of exacting ‘vengeance’ against the United States government for its foreign policies,” prosecutors said.

Tevlin was shot multiple times on June 25, 2014 as he stopped at a traffic light in West Orange on his way home to Livingston, roughly five or 10 minutes away. Tevlin was home after completing his freshman year at the University of Richmond. At the time, Brown had been a fugitive for three weeks after authorities in Seattle identified him as a suspect in the slayings of two men early on the morning of June 1.

Brown was arrested in woods not far from the site of Tevlin’s killing, in an area that includes a golf course and the South Mountain Reservation, a 2,000-acre park in the center of Essex County.

At the time of Brown’s arrest, Murray said results of ballistics tests from the Tevlin shooting were put into a national database and matched with the gun that was used in the Seattle murders. Authorities said they picked up Brown’s trail after an alleged robbery and attempted carjacking in Point Pleasant on June 29, four days after Tevlin was killed.

The prosecutor’s office announced Thursday it had dropped charges in the Tevlin slaying against West Orange residents Eric Williams and Jeremy Villagran, who were charged along with Brown.

In the New Jersey case Brown is also charged with felony murder, carjacking, robbery and multiple weapons offenses.

Muslim woman who ’embraced jihadist ideology’ sentenced to death for killing US teacher

American lives don’t count. Especially American women killed by jihadists. Not a peep from Hussein Obama. via UAE woman ‘sentenced to death for killing US teacher’ – Yahoo News.

A United Arab Emirates court sentenced an Emirati woman to death on Monday after convicting her of the jihadist-inspired murder of an American teacher, Abu Dhabi newspaper The National reported.

Alaa Bader al-Hashemi, 30, was found guilty of stabbing to death school teacher Ibolya Ryan, 47, in a shopping mall toilet, the paper said.

She was also convicted of “creating a handmade bomb” she placed in front of an Egyptian-American doctor’s home, it added.

The attacks took place within hours of each other in the UAE capital on December 1.

Tracked down using CCTV footage of her going into and out of the restroom where the teacher’s murder took place and near the doctor’s building, Hashemi was arrested 48 hours later.

She was dressed in black from head-to-toe as she carried out both attacks.

Hashemi was arrested at her home where her car was found with blood on the steering wheel and bomb making materials inside.

The National said that Hashemi “was also found guilty of sending money to Al-Qaeda in Yemen, knowing the funds would be used in terrorist acts”.

The ruling was made by the Federal Supreme Court in Abu Dhabi, which means it cannot be appealed.

The president can, however, decide to overturn the sentence or reduce it.

Hashemi, surrounded by four police officers, “showed no emotion as the verdict and sentence were announced,” the paper said.

“As she was led from court she smiled and waved at her father and brother, who were in court to witness the proceedings.”

International media have been denied access to her trial, which began on March 23.

Hashemi had asked the court to provide her with psychological help, saying she had “unreal visions” and would see “ghost-like people” due to a chronic mental illness.

The court ordered psychiatric tests which it said showed she was aware of her actions.

In March, Attorney General Salem Saeed Kubaish said that investigators found she had “listened to lectures by late Al-Qaeda leaders Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, watched video clips of killings and beheadings,” among other similar activities.

She “embraced takfiri and jihadist ideology and then engaged in terrorist acts in support of the terrorist organisations Al-Qaeda and Daesh,” he said using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group.

The convict was also said to have created an Internet account to promote the “ideas of a terrorist group”.

The judge on Monday “ordered the confiscation of all evidence and the shutting down of the online account Hashemi had used,” The National said.


She also planted a bomb at an American doctor’s home.

 

New Jersey: Another Muslim arrested on terror charges

via Fifth arrest made in New Jersey for terror-related charges | New York’s PIX11 / WPIX-TV.

NEWARK, N.J. — A New Jersey man has been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, the fifth such arrest of a tri-state area resident this month, the FBI said Monday.

Alaa Saadeh, 23, of West New York, N.J., was taken into custody Monday morning at his home, the FBI said.

In addition to accusations he conspired with other men in New Jersey and New York to provide services and personnel to the Islamic State terror group, Saadeh is suspected of trying to persuade a witness to lie to the FBI, the agency said.

The 23-year-old appeared before a judge Monday afternoon.

Manny Gomez, a former FBI agent and founder of MG Security Services says that Monday’s arrest should be embraced with mixed feelings, “The authorities are doing an amazing job at identifying, investigating and ultimately arresting these people and stopping these attacks.”

That is the good news.

As for the bad?

“The bad news is that statistically speaking, ISIS is recruiting more and more young people on a daily basis and the authorities are being challenged more and more everyday to keep up with these potential attacks,” says Gomez.

The FBI said Saadeh’s brother left the U.S. in May allegedly to join the terror group, which uses beheadings and mass killings — often captured on camera then published online — to impose its violent agenda.

Saadeh along with another man and Samuel Rahamin Topaz, 21, of Fort Lee, allegedly traveled with him and promised to meet overseas again in a few weeks. Soon after, Saadeh’s brother, whom the FBI did not identify, was arrested in Jordan on suspicion of supporting ISIS, federal officials said.

But Saadeh, Topaz and a third man continued to discuss their suspected terror goals. That is, until May 21 when he and Topaz allegedly talked about the need to “lay low,” apparently suspicious that someone may have “snitched” on their plans and that the feds were listening, the FBI said.

Saadeh allegedly revealed to an informant that he supported ISIS and their brutal slayings, the FBI said. He then allegedly told someone in New Jersey to “play dumb” and be “honest up to a point” but be sure not to tell the FBI anything about his suspected terror aspirations.

PIX 11 spoke with U.S. Representative Yvette Clarke, a former Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security at her Brooklyn office. Rep. Clarke says it translates to, “Well it just says to me that we’ve got a lot more work to do in terms of finding those potential lone operators.”

Rep. Clarke also added that equally as disturbing is the fact that a number of the men arrested are relatively young, “It speaks to some sort of disillusionment among some young people, particularly those who would be more vulnerable to those trying to find acceptance and unfortunately that acceptance is through theses dramatic terrorist plots.”

As for the fact that this is the fifth arrest in the tri-State area in recent weeks, Gomez says the rash is concerning, “Five in a short amount of time in the same area is a new thing and it makes one wonder how many more are out there in the country that we don’t have eyes and ears on that can potentially blow up, literally at any given time.”

Each count in the complaint against Saadeh carries a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.


Another news source writes:

Saadeh could face up to 60 years in prison if convicted.

According to the federal complaint, Saadeh believed one of the others snitched on him when he learned his brother was arrested overseas. Saadeh allegedly said he would “kill someone” and told a witness to “play dumb” after he learned the FBI was on to him.

Comcast pimps “It’s Ramadan” commercials in U.S. as Muslims go on worldwide Ramadan killing spree

“The Ramadan commercial is airing in 74 zip codes in Michigan and southern Florida for Comcast Cable customers.”

its-ramadan

In many other zip codes around the world, Muslims are killing as many as possible during Ramadan. via Dearborn company’s Ramadan commercial casts new light on Muslims – News – Press and Guide.

It isn’t every day that you see positive images of Muslims on television. But this Ramadan, a new commercial is changing that.

The Ramadan commercial aims to show the real image of everyday American Muslims and a glimpse into their lives during Ramadan. Dearborn company Piximotion created the first-of-its-kind commercial with Comcast.

“A part of the message is to show that Islam is very diverse,” said Wissam Bazzi, of Dearborn Heights and founder of Piximotion. “Islam in the mainstream media is not the only perspective.”

The 30-second clip features Muslims of various backgrounds, including scenes of families gathering for iftar, the time to break fast. The commercial highlights thankfulness, discipline and family as some of the key components of what makes Ramadan a special time for Muslims.

The commercial, which can be viewed at http://www.itsramadan.org, ends with the message: “It’s Ramadan. A month of human values. From your Muslim friends and neighbors, happy Ramadan.”

Bazzi said the project shows the humanity of Muslims, and Ramadan is a great time to do that.

The Ramadan commercial is airing in 74 zip codes in Michigan and southern Florida for Comcast Cable customers. More than $5,000 in funds for the commercial were raised through crowdfunding site LaunchGood and about $25,000 were raised altogether. Bazzi said the interest was so great that people even stopped into his office to support the project.

“It’s a beautiful effort of our whole community coming together. The unification of so many different individuals,” Bazzi said.

Supporters will be glad to hear that the project doesn’t end when Ramadan does. Bazzi said they are planning for a bigger commercial next year.


If the start of Ramadan is any indication, humanity is non-existent among followers of Islam. But hey, “It’s Ramadan!”

Create your own “It’s Ramadan” video and we’ll post it!

Florida: Imam who trained jihadist sentenced to time served, released

Another jihad-preaching & teaching imam defended by terror group CAIR.

via Man accused in jihad plot sentenced to time already served – Orlando Sentinel.

A federal judge Friday morning sentenced Marcus Robertson to time served and ordered his release, saying his time in jail was sufficient for both convictions of tax fraud and weapons charges.

Robertson, also known as Abu Taubah, was accused of teaching another man how to participate in jihad missions overseas.

On Friday, U.S. Judge Gregory Presnell sentenced Robertson to a total of 20 months for both convictions.

But Robertson has spent the last three and a half years in prison, according to his attorney Daniel Broderson, which is more time than his actual sentence.

He was convicted on the weapons charge in 2012 and tax fraud in 2014, the judge said.

As a condition of his release, Robertson was put on probation for three years.

“As the judge remarked, he should not have spent that much time in jail based on the crimes he committed,” Broderson said after the sentencing. “He’s going to go on with his life to the best of his ability.”

Robertson had faced increased sentencing of up to 20 years for allegedly promoting terrorism through these crimes.

According to federal prosecutors, Robertson falsified tax documents to fund recruiting efforts for an al-Qaida base overseas.

This allegation was based on seized books, court-authorized surveillance and the man who says Robertson trained him, Jonathan Jimenez.

Jimenez pleaded guilty in 2012 of lying to FBI agents and falsifying income-tax documents, records show.

He is serving a 10-year prison sentence.

Jimenez, who moved to Central Florida with a ninth-grade education, listed three of Robertson’s children as exemptions on tax documents, court records show.

According to prosecutors, the money was to pay for Jimenez’s overseas travel to learn about killing, suicide bombing and identifying military personnel.

Presnell determined there wasn’t enough evidence to prove the terrorism claim.

At Friday’s sentencing, Presnell said he had received hundreds of emails from people asking him to hand down a maximum sentence.

He read one email that said, “Islam must be stopped and redirected back to the Middle East.”

In his comments to the court, Presnell said the U.S. tolerates other religions and that the emails did not affect his decision.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida supported the judge’s decision.

The organization’s chief executive director, Hassan Shibly, spoke after the sentencing on behalf of Robertson and his family.

Robertson returned to Seminole County jail — where he was being held — to collect his belongings and be processed for release, Shibly said.

“The judge sent a strong message to the government that it cannot lock people up for preaching and teaching Islam by falsely misrepresenting possessing Islamic literature and teaching Islam as equating to sympathizing with terrorism,” Shibly said.


Back stories here. This is what CAIR defends with no qualms:

ORLANDO, Fla. — WFTV has uncovered an Orange Countyimam’s past ties to the so-called Blind Sheik, whose extremist group is blamed for the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.

Channel 9’s Kathi Belich broke the story of Marcus Robertson’s arrest last year. On Monday, she obtained new documents in the case that detail even more disturbing information.

Federal prosecutors said Orange County Imam Abu Taubah, aka convicted felon Marcus Robertson, has murdered people, attempted assassinations, took hostages and tried to kill police officers, all to fund attacks on U.S. soil.

So where are the charges?

Last year, months before the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, prosecutors said Robertson planned an attack on U.S. military personnel overseas.

Authorities said Robertson was bodyguard to Omar Abdel Rahman, known as the Blind Sheik. Rahman’s extremist Islamic group was blamed for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Authorities said Robertson led a band of thieves who robbed banks and the government in the 1990s. He was even accused of giving Rahman $300,000 for a much bigger New York attack on the Washington Bridge, tunnels and government buildings.
