“We Don’t Have An Islamophobia Problem in the US, We Have an Islamophilia Problem”

Islamophobia ISLAMOPHILIA

via Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters | RealClearPolitics.

The only religion this president is willing to come out and publicly defend is Islam. And I’m not suggesting he’s a Muslim, but he clearly romanticizes Islam and he treats it as though Islam is above all criticism. Now, Tucker, those attacks yesterday in Denmark, they were attacks on fundamental principles of western civilization. Freedom of expression and religious tolerance.

And what does Obama do? What do his minions do? What does the American left do? They flip it around and say, ‘No, no, an attack on a synagogue doesn’t count.’ The only religious intolerance is intolerance of Islam. We have this problem where everybody on the left in the United States romanticizes Islam and they’re always scolding us. ‘Beware of Islamophobia. You can’t indulge in Islamophobia.’

We do not have an Islamophobia problem in the United States, we have an Islamophilia problem which places Islam above all criticism. And until we hold Islam to the same standards as every other religion, ethically and behaviorally, terrorism wins.

Immigration judge denies asylum for Afghan soldier who fled training exercise in Massachusetts

An update on this post, with a surprising ruling. via US judge: No asylum for Afghan soldier who fled training – Olean Times Herald

An immigration judge denied asylum Friday for an Afghan military officer who sneaked away from a U.S. training exercise in Massachusetts to avoid returning to Afghanistan, where he said he had been threatened by the Taliban.

The judge ruled that Maj. Jan Arash did not qualify for certain protections because the Taliban is not a government, his lawyer said, nor had he proven that he would be persecuted, rather than legally prosecuted, by the Afghan government.

“If he gets deported and hung for desertion, that’s OK under the law,” attorney Matthew Borowski said.

“We have no choice but to appeal to the Board of Immigration Appeals,” the attorney said. The process could take several months.

In the meantime, Arash will continue to be held at the Buffalo Federal Detention Center, where the asylum case was heard.

Arash is one of three Afghan military officers who were detained in September after being denied entry into Canada, where they had planned to seek refugee status.

One of the soldiers, Capt. Mohammad Nasir Askarzada, was allowed into Canada in December after proving he had relatives there.

The other, Capt. Noorullah Aminyar, is seeking asylum in the United States. His case is pending before the same judge that denied Arash’s claim.

“The cases are essentially the same,” Borowski said. Friday’s ruling “doesn’t bode well for him.”

Borowski, who has been representing the soldiers pro bono, said Arash had hoped to be released on parole so that he could work to send money to his wife and children, who are suffering without Arash’s income.

“His family is starving in Afghanistan,” Borowski said. “They don’t have firewood and they don’t have food, or not enough.”

The three soldiers took a cab more than 500 miles from Massachusetts to the Canadian border in Niagara Falls while in the United States for a training exercise at Joint Base Cape Cod. In interviews with The Associated Press shortly after they were detained, they described being targeted by the Taliban because of their work with U.S. soldiers.


According to the White House, the Taliban is not a terrorist group.

New York: Obama imports 2 more Muslim terrorists for trial in U.S. civilian courts

Five years after capture, Obama gives foreign jihadis a lawyer and same rights as American citizens. via Yemenis Linked To Al Qaeda Will Stand Trial In New York – Business Insider.

Two Yemeni nationals were charged with conspiring to murder Americans abroad and providing material support to al Qaeda, according to a complaint and arrest warrant unsealed on Tuesday.

Saddiq Al-Abbadi and Ali Alvi were arrested in Saudi Arabia and expelled to the United States, the US Justice Department said.

According to a press release from the US Department of Justice, both Al-Abbadi and Alvi are members of al Qaeda. Between 2003 and 2007, Al-Abbadi carried out attacks against the US military in Iraq.

In 2008, both men traveled to the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan to train and fight alongside al Qaeda. During this time, the two aided an American citizen with joining al Qaeda with the express purpose of carrying out attacks against US soldiers in Afghanistan as well as civilian targets within the US.

In May 2008, Al-Abbadi also led an attack against US forces in Afghanistan that resulted in the death of a US Army Ranger.

In 2008, Alvi helped facilitate the entry of US citizen Bryant Neil Vinas into al-Qaeda. Vinas traveled to Pakistan from Long Island and ultimately developed a plan in conjunction with senior al Qaeda leadership to attack the Long Island Railroad.

Al-Abbadi is scheduled to appear in federal court in Brooklyn later on Tuesday.

“With the charges announced today, these defendants will face justice for conspiring to kill Americans overseas and providing material support to al-Qaeda,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.

“It appears, in this case, that the U.S. government relied on foreign governments to detain and interrogate the Yemenis and share that information with the United States,” the Iowa and South Carolina Republican leaders said in the letter. “In the case of Al-Abbadi, it took almost five years after his initial capture for this Administration to take him into custody. And when it did, the Administration decided to pursue an Article III prosecution, transfer him to New York, read him his Miranda rights, and give him an attorney.”


 

And at least someone in Congress is doing their job: Vitter Says Charging Enemy Combatants in U.S. Courts is a Disgrace

U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-La.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today made the following statement regarding the Obama administration’s policy of prosecuting enemy combatants picked-up on foreign battlefields in U.S. federal courts. Court documents say the Obama administration has authorized the transfer of two Yemeni nationals arrested in Saudi Arabia into the United States to be charged in the Eastern District of New York, which deviates from standard U.S. military custody and prosecution of enemy combatants recognized since 2001. Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s nominee to serve as Attorney General, serves as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York.

“Under no circumstance should enemy combatants receive the protection of our Constitution in federal court,” Vitter said. “If Loretta Lynch has dignified them with that protection, we should hold a hearing to fully review the circumstances before considering her nomination. Such policy is a complete disgrace to our service men and women who protect us from enemy combatants like these.”

The two enemy combatants were charged in the Eastern District of New York district court for operating as members of al-Qaeda and taking part in attacks on U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Vitter has announced his commitment to oppose Loretta Lynch’s nomination to serve as U.S. Attorney General until she affirms opposition to moving forward with any executive action to grant amnesty to five million illegal immigrants.

Brooklyn: Muslim immigrant in court, orchestrated truck bomb that killed 5 U.S. soldiers

A defendant has been extradited and was set to appear in court in Brooklyn on Saturday, on charges that he helped orchestrate a terrorist attack that killed five servicemen in Iraq in 2009.

Faruq Khalil Muhammed ’Isa, also known as Faruq Khalil Muhammad ’Isa, Sayfildin Tahir Sharif and Tahir Sharif Sayfildin, was extradited to the United States from Canada and was to make his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.

Court documents said ’Isa was charged in connection with his support for a multinational terrorist network that was blamed for several suicide bombings in Iraq. A complaint filed back in 2011 accused ’Isa of helping orchestrate an attack on the U.S. Military Forward Operating Base Marez in Mosul on April 10, 2009, prosecutors said.

A truck full of explosives pulled up to the gate of the base, and those inside exchanged gunfire with Iraqi police officers guarding the base and with an American convoy exiting afterward, prosecutors said.

The truck blew up alongside the last vehicle in the U.S. convoy and left a 60-foot crater in the ground, prosecutors said. Five American soldiers were killed – Staff Sgt. Gary L. Woods, 24, of Lebanon Junction, Kentucky; Sgt. First Class Bryan E. Hall, 32, of Elk Grove, California; Sgt. Edward W. Forrest Jr., 25, of St. Louis, Missouri; Cpl. Jason G. Pautsch, 20, of Davenport Iowa, and Army Pfc. Bryce E. Gaultier, 22 of Cyprus, California, prosecutors said.

“Today’s extradition demonstrates to those who orchestrate violence against our citizens and our soldiers that there is no corner of the globe from which they can hide from the long reach of the law,” U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said in a news release. “We will continue to use every available means to bring to justice those who are responsible for the deaths of American servicemen and women who paid the ultimate price in their defense of this nation.”

If convicted, ’Isa faces a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, prosecutors said.

 

Muslim infiltrator on NRA Board of Directors ballot – beware! (updated)

In recent days we saw a troubling post on Twitter. Here it is, see if you spot what we spotted almost immediately.

nra-tweet

See it? Here’s a better look at what is apparently an NRA voting ballot soon to be distributed to eligible NRA voters.

NRA-Director-Ballot1

We spoke to at least one NRA member who stated the vote is only open to lifetime members and that is corroborated by at least one gun blog, AR15.COM, that had a thread on the vote:

Voting NRA members and anyone willing to stand up for your 2nd Amendment rights.

The 2015 vote for the NRA Board of Directors is about a month away. The ballots will come in your February NRA magazine or by way of mail if you get an electronic magazine, if you are a voting member (5 years unbroken/ Life member or higher).

Please dig in, do your research and vote for the NRA you want.

 


We also encourage all NRA members, lifetime or not, and all Americans to “dig in” starting with the video below, Grover Norquist’s Islamic Republic of America, and links to previous posts right here on Creeping Sharia.

While one director may not be able to influence the direction of the NRA, be sure Norquist will try and he’ll bring more Muslims with him. What he will undoubtedly do is act as an informant, a mole, deep inside the NRA, sharing the NRA’s intents and strategies with terror-linked Muslim groups within the U.S. and abroad.

Update: Word is that Norquist is already on the NRA board and trying to retain his seat. And the heat is on and getting to Norquist and the NRA. Members should vow to cancel their membership and stop funding the organization if this Muslim infiltrator remains on the board.

Grover Norquist Loses It, Lashes out to NRA Board

Update 2: As the number of Americans out of the workforce hits record levels, Grover Norquist stars in George Soros-funded pro-amnesty group’s ad this weekend’s Daytona 500.

Norquist teamed up with Michael Bloomberg’s pro-amnesty Partnership for a New America group earlier in the week to host a conference call in which top 2016 GOP donors pushed for comprehensive amnesty legislation.

…a recent Gallup poll found that a majority of Americans are disatisfied with the country’s immigration levels and just seven percent want more immigration at this time.

 

 

 

DOJ grants al Qaeda terrorist early release from US federal prison, sends to Qatar

Eric Holder never met a terrorist he didn’t like. via Al Qaeda operative freed from US federal prison early for ‘time served’ | Fox News.

Ali Saleh Kahlah al Marri — an admitted Al Qaeda operative in the United States — was released last week from a federal prison prior to completing his 15-year sentence because of “time served,” the Justice Department told Fox News on Tuesday.

Al Marri had been in U.S. custody since 2001, after reportedly being picked up on a routine traffic stop just weeks after the 9-11 terror attacks. During a routine check, police discovered federal authorities already had him on their radar.

He was arrested and charged with providing “material support or resources” to 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and other Al Qaeda operatives.

The 49-year-old al Marri, a Qatar native, at the time of his arrest was a U.S. resident attending graduate school.

He was declared an enemy combatant in 2003 and sent to a Navy brig in Charleston, S.C.

In 2008, U.S. courts ruled that al Marri, as a U.S. resident, was entitled to a federal hearing. He accepted a plea deal in 2009 that included the 15-year sentence, reportedly at a federal prison in Illinois.

Al Marri was freed on Friday, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

His departure follows a series of releases of detainees from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as President Obama tries to close the facility, opened in the wake of the 9-11 attacks.

The recent Guantanamo releases have drawn sharp reaction from critics who say the president is now freeing the last and most dangerous detainees, who pose a high risk of re-establishing terror group connections.

Al Marri reportedly has returned to Qatar as part of a repatriation agreement.

The country last year accepted five Guantanamo Bay detainees, released in exchange for the Taliban’s release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

As part of the deal, the Qatar government imposed a one-year travel ban on the detainees and pledged they would pose no further threat to the U.S.

According to the terms of al Marri’s 2009 deal, he admitted to conspiring to “provide material support or resources” to Mohammed and other al Qaeda operatives.

“The defendant will plead guilty because he is in fact guilty,” federal prosecutors said in the court documents.

 

Video: U.S. Military Not Taught Ideology of Islamic Jihad

via CNS News.

Center for Security Policy (CSP) official Tommy Waller, who fought against Islamic jihadists “on their turf” in Afghanistan and elsewhere, said his military training did not include instruction in the ideology of the enemy, a deliberate omission that puts America in “great peril.”

Waller, a Marine Reserve major, speaking via Skype at the National Press Club on Jan. 16, said he was speaking as an employee of the CSP, a conservative national security group in Washington, D.C., which released that day a new report, The Secure Freedom Strategy: A Plan for Victory Over the Global Jihad Movement.

The plan, designed by 16 experts on counter-terrorism, intelligence, the military and national security, is based on President Ronald Reagan’s plan to defeat the Communist Soviet Union.

The Secure Freedom Strategy explains that Muslims who adhere to Sharia law are behind the global jihad movement and the deadly attacks around the world on innocent people of all faiths, including other Muslims.

“Still to this day, if you attend a formal military school, you’ll find that there’s never mention of the ideology that animates our enemies.

“We speak in terms like violent extremist organizations. We never nail down the facts about what animates these organizations or, as Clare mentioned, individuals that subscribe to the ideology.

“I recently attended a school that was nearly a year long – a formal military school for commissioned officers at the field grade level. And in 10-plus months we covered information operations for less than an hour and our case study was the Communist insurgency and how we conducted propaganda operations against it in Vietnam.

“It’s mind-boggling to me how our enemies maintain absolute information dominance but it makes sense if that’s the curriculum that we have in our military’s formal schools.

“I’ve been up until this point, shocked and saddened by – and almost bewildered – by the absence void in factual analysis of our enemy on behalf of the national security community and what we face today is tantamount to the military of the Cold War being prevented from studying Communism. Being prevented from studying the ideology that they faced on the battlefield.

“And so it’s my sincere hope that my generation and those that follow it can recover the courage that our previous generation had to study the ideology of the enemy.
