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!

Boston: Muslim in jihad plot indicted on weapons charges, but not terrorism

This was the great July 4th ISIS threat? And not even a single terrorism related charge (despite the incorrect WWLP article title)? Was all the July 4 terror hype just government fear-mongering to obscure Obama’s other agendas? via Adams man indicted on terrorism charges | WWLP.com.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP/WWLP) — A Boston police captain’s son who authorities say plotted a terrorist attack in support of the Islamic State group has been indicted on weapons and assault charges in western Massachusetts.

Federal prosecutors said a grand jury in U.S. District Court in Springfield on Thursday indicted 23-year-old Alexander Ciccolo of Adams, Massachusetts. The indictments had been expected after Ciccolo’s arrest July 4.

Authorities said Ciccolo plotted to detonate pressure-cooker bombs at an unidentified university and was arrested after he received four guns he ordered from a government witness. Prosecutors said Ciccolo also stabbed a nurse with a pen at a jail after his arrest, resulting in the assault charge.

Ciccolo’s lawyer, David Hoose, says his client denies all the allegations and will plead not guilty next week.


He’ll get maybe ten years of sharia-compliant, jihadist ideology training…at taxpayer expense. By then the jihad in America should be in full swing.

BOSTON – An Adams man has been charged in an Indictment in connection with a plot to engage in terrorism on behalf of ISIL. A grand jury in U.S. District Court in Springfield indicted Alexander Ciccolo, a/k/a Ali Al Amriki, 23, on one count of being a convicted felon in possession of firearms and one count of assault with a deadly weapon and causing bodily injury to a person assisting an officer of the United States in the performance of official duties. The latter charge stems from Ciccolo’s alleged attack of a nurse during a jail intake process after his arrest.

Two former Gitmo prisoners arrested in Belgium on terror charges

via Two former Gitmo detainees arrested in Belgium – CNNPolitics.com.

Two former detainees at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba were arrested by Belgian police in a counterterrorism operation targeting a recruiting network for al Qaeda in Syria.

They were arrested Wednesday night along with three others as they were about to break into a house to raise funds in the town of Hoboken, near Antwerp, a senior Belgian counterterrorism official told CNN.

“We have dismantled a serious recruiting network for Syria,” the official told CNN.

One of the former Guantanamo Bay detainees was Moussa Zemmouri, 37, a Moroccan national born in Antwerp, Belgian federal prosecutors announced Friday. The other was an Algerian identified as Soufiane A., who prosecutors believe spent time in Syria.

Both have been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist group and all five have been charged with attempted armed robbery.

Zemmouri was released from Guantanamo in 2005 and authored a book “Innocent at Guantanamo” after returning to Belgium. His case was featured prominently by the UK Muslim prisoner advocacy group CAGE, which has long maintained that he has no links to terrorism.

According to a 2003 detainee assessment file posted by the WikiLeaks website, Zemmouri was transferred to U.S. custody after he was detained by Pakistani police when fleeing Afghanistan after the beginning of the U.S. bombing campaign in autumn 2001.

The document alleged he had trained in the al Qaeda-sponsored Derunta training camp in Khost, Afghanistan. It said “sensitive reporting also indicates that detainee is a high-ranking member of the Theological Commission of the Moroccan Islamic Fighting Group (MIFG).”

According to the Belgian official, Zemmouri was put under observation after his return to Belgium. Belgian security services suspect he provided theological encouragement to several former members of the al Qaeda affiliated MIFG who left to fight jihad in Syria after they completed prison sentences in Belgian jails.

The official said there was no indication the group was plotting an attack in Belgium.

Efforts to immediately reach an attorney for Zemmouri were unsuccessful.

Belgian officials know of the identity of more than 300 extremists who have traveled from Belgium to join jihadi groups in Syria.

Obama was forced to order flags lowered in honor of Tennessee jihad victims

Leading from behind as usual. via Obama orders flags lowered to honor Tennessee victims, after criticism. Or as Pamela Geller wrote, he was shamed into it. Obama has no shame. He has no conscience. He is intentional in everything he does and does not do. Who will stop him?

President Obama has ordered that flags be lowered to half-staff at the White House and federal buildings across the country to honor the victims of last week’s shooting rampage in Chattanooga, Tenn., after facing pressure from lawmakers and others.

In a proclamation issued early Tuesday afternoon, Obama said of the Chattanooga victims, “We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives. We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try and do us harm: We do not give in to fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life.”

He ordered flags flown at half-staff at the White House and “all public buildings and grounds,” as well as over military posts and naval stations and vessels — until July 25. Flags will be flown at half-staff at U.S. embassies and other overseas diplomatic offices.

The decision comes after congressional leaders ordered flags at the U.S. Capitol lowered to half-staff earlier in the day — that decision fueled questions over why the White House hadn’t yet done the same.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., a veteran, earlier released a statement calling it “unconscionable” that the flags had not been lowered, as of Tuesday morning. “The flag and all it represents is sacred to our military, and the President must know that lowering the flag is a signal of honor and respect,” he said.

Shortly afterward, the White House issued its proclamation, following similar instructions for the Capitol by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker John Boehner.

 “Last week, five brave service members were murdered in a terror attack in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Out of respect for their courageous service and sacrifice to our nation, flags at the U.S. Capitol are being lowered to half-staff,” Boehner said in a statement.

Tennessee’s Three Apologist Bills and the Chattanooga Jihad Murder

via Tennessee Council 4 Political Justice.

If Bill Gibbons, Bill Killian and Bill Haslam hadn’t elevated Tennessee’s Muslims to a super protected class could the Chattanooga jihad murder have been averted?

Bill Gibbons – Despite the 2009 jihad murder by Memphis native Carlos Bledsoe, Tennessee’s Commissioner of Safety and Homeland Security Bill Gibbons (also from Memphis), took an early lead in obscuring any objective examination of who and what the jihad threat might be in Tennessee:

  • 2011 – Bill Gibbons assigned James Cotter to help organize the American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) whose founding members openly praise Muslim Brotherhood organizations that “help American Muslims stay true to their religious values while being uniquely American.”
  • In 2009 James Cotter was a TNDHS Regional Advisor who said with regard to foreign threats, “anything that they do over there can happen here and will.” [almost like a prediction of Chattanooga]. Not long after helping AMAC organize, Cotter was promoted to the state’s Office of Homeland Security Training Advisor.
  • November 2011, Gibbons sent a congratulatory letter to AMAC dated months before his denial of his agency’s involvement with them.
  • In early 2012 when asked, Gibbons denied ever having been involved with AMAC – right before his 2011 letter appeared.
  • September 2012 – Nashville Somali refugee worker said “she was ready to die for Allah. Further, Abdullahi said that her life starts after death and that she should pick up a gun and ‘shoot all these people,’ referring to her co-workers.”

Bill Killian – In June 2013 Tennessee U.S. Attorney Bill Killian spoke at an AMAC event. He said he would use federal civil rights laws to stop legally permissible hate speech directed at Muslims. The next day Killian disclosed how he planned to promote politically correct speech while suppressing First Amendment rights:

“Hateful statements directed at another will be used as evidence in a hate crime,… Our district has a 96 percent conviction rate…and we’ve never had a conviction overturned for violation of First Amendment.”  

  • December 2014 – a claimed ISIS related group threatened to blow up the Memphis-Arkansas bridge.
  • January 2015 – Cyber Caliphate hacks into “secure” Stewart County, TN server.
  • May, 2015 – Nashville Douglas Corner Cafe cyber-hacked with “I am Muslim and I love jihad”
  • July 16, 2015 – Jihad murders at two military reserve centers in Chattanooga.

Bill Killian has been assigned the lead position in investigating the Chattanooga jihad murders. Bill Killian has made his Islamist apologist bias public and has a conflict of interest and should recuse himself.

Bill Haslam – the governor of Oklahoma, Mary Fallon DID NOT HESITATE to immediately issue an executive order enabling National Guardsmen to be armed at military facilities. Governors in several other states followed her lead.

With his typical lack of urgency, the best Bill Haslam could do was delay action. First he’s having an inquiry made and then he’ll see about how the state can expedite members of the military getting a state gun carry permit.

Is the Governor aware that the Brentwood mosque where jihadi murderer Abdulazeez prayed while he was working in Franklin, is located right next door to a Marine recruitment center?

What’s the likelihood that any or all of the Three Bills, can put their political correctness and Muslim apologist bias aside to remember that they have a duty to protect all of us, not just Muslim sensitivities?

Democrat Ret. General Wesley Clark Suggests Internment Camps for Radicalized Americans

Leave it to a Democrat who helped usher militant Islam into Europe to suggest internment. Be sure he isn’t only thinking of Muslims. Via a new site exposing the enemy within, Progressives Today.

Recently on MSNBC, General Wesley Clark who was a 2004 Democrat candidate for president, advocated the idea of putting radical Muslims into internment camps.

The progressive site Talking Points Memo reported:

Gen. Wesley Clark: Let’s Throw Radical Muslims Into Internment Camps

U.S. General Wesley Clark floated a plan Friday for dealing with so-called “lone wolf” terrorists on American soil: imprison them in internment camps before they get the chance to attack the U.S.

In an appearance on MSNBC to discuss the shootings at Chattanooga military sites, the retired general and former Democratic candidate for president said we should be dealing with “disloyal” American citizens who’ve been “radicalized” the same way the U.S. did during World War II – and called on allies to do the same.

“In World War II, if someone supported Nazi Germany at the expense of the United States, we didn’t say that was freedom of speech, we put them in a camp, they were prisoners of war,” Clark said.

Here’s the video:


Don’t take Clark’s bait. 

Internment is a great idea…for the career criminals in Washington, D.C. who are destroying America.

If the United States had a coherent immigration policy the jihadi threat would be significantly lower. Had we prevented those most likely to be loyal to Islam and the sharia over the United States Constitution and those most likely to act on the commands of their faith from entering (and re-entering) the United States over the last fifteen years there would be half as many potential jihadists here. If we deported those who acted or incited others to act against the United States, even less.

Had they held technology companies accountable for aiding and abetting jihadists (Google, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook – to name a few), lesser yet. And had we not been funding and arming the jihad overseas but rather protecting the homeland – well…you get the idea.

Muslims teaching children how to behead, fight infidels (video)

via In an ISIS training camp, children told: Behead the doll

Turkey (AP) — The children each received a doll and a sword. Then they were lined up, more than 120 of them, and given their next lesson by their Islamic State group instructors: Behead the doll.

A 14-year-old who was among the line of abducted boys from Iraq’s Yazidi religious minority said that at first, he couldn’t cut it right — he chopped once, twice, three times.

“Then they taught me how to hold the sword, and they told me how to hit. They told me it was the head of the infidels…”


And once they are proficient beheading dolls, they apply their skills on humans:


Muslims are doing the same in Hamas youth training camps in U.S. taxpayer-funded areas:

How many of these will be among the tens of thousands of Muslim refugees being imported to the U.S. or flooding the southern border?
