Obama sides with Muslims, Turkey – will not label 1915 massacre of Armenians a genocide

via Barack Obama will not label 1915 massacre of Armenians a genocide | The Guardian.

President Barack Obama will once again stop short of calling the 1915 massacre of Armenians a genocide, prompting anger and disappointment from those who have been pushing him to fulfill a campaign promise and use the politically fraught term on the 100th anniversary of the killings this week.

Officials decided against it after opposition from some at the State Department and the Pentagon.

After more than a week of internal debate, top administration officials discussed the final decision with Armenian-American leaders Tuesday before making it public.

As a senator and presidential candidate, Obama did describe the killings of Armenians as genocide and said the US government had a responsibility to recognise it as such.

As a candidate in January 2008, Obama had pledged to recognize the genocide and at least one of his campaign surrogates, the current US ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, recorded a nearly five-minute video at the time imploring Armenian-Americans to vote for Obama precisely because he would keep his word on the issue.

But, Obama has never used that description since taking office, mainly out of deference to Turkey, a key US partner and Nato ally, which is fiercely opposed to the genocide label.

Several US officials said there had been a sharp internal debate over whether to use the 100-year anniversary to call the killings “genocide” and make good on the president’s campaign promise, particularly after Pope Francis used the term earlier this month.

That comment by the pope prompted an angry response from Turkey, which recalled its ambassador to the Vatican over the matter. Several European governments and parliaments are also expected to use the word in discussions of the events 100 years ago.

Some at the State Department, particularly those who deal directly with Turkey and its neighbours in the Middle East, as well as at the Pentagon, argued against using the word, according to the officials who spoke on condition of anonymity.

They said the damage it would cause to US relations with Turkey at a critical time, notably when Washington needs Ankara’s help in fighting the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq, would far outweigh the immediate benefits. The safety of US diplomats and troops in Turkey was also a consideration, the officials said.


Hussein sides again with Muslims including the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood who also Backs Turkey on Armenian Genocide.

 

Canada: Judge grants bail to ex-Gitmo jihadi who killed American soldier

Videos below. via Alberta judge grants Omar Khadr bail | Toronto Star.

A Canadian judge has granted Omar Khadr bail, offering the former Guantanamo Bay detainee his first taste of freedom after more than 12 years in custody.

Alberta Justice June Ross released her verdict Friday, a month after Khadr appeared in an Edmonton court appealing for bail while his Guantanamo conviction is being challenged in a Washington court.

“He has 12 ½ year track record as a model prisoner, and a release plan supported by educators, mental health professionals, and his lawyers,” Ross wrote.

“This is a circumstance where balancing a strong appeal and the public confidence in the administration of justice favour the same result.”

Khadr’s longtime Canadian lawyer, Dennis Edney, along with his wife Patricia, has offered to have Khadr live with them and provide whatever community supervision he may require.

A large community group in Edmonton — from imams and medical professionals, to professors at a Christian university where Khadr has been offered admission — has rallied around the 28-year-old.

Edney and lawyer Nathan Whitling, who argued the bail application, said they were delighted by the news. “Omar is fortunate to be back in Canada where we have real courts and real laws,” said Whitling.

Added Edney about Khadr’s release, “it has been a long time coming.”

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney issued a statement saying he was “disappointed” by the decision and that the federal government plans to appeal. Ottawa could argue that Khadr must remain in custody until that appeal is heard.

“Our Government will continue to work to combat the international jihadi movement, which has declared war on Canada and her allies,” Blaney wrote.

A hearing will be held May 5 to determine the conditions of Khadr’s bail.

Khadr is currently held at Bowden Institute, in Innisfail, Alta. and has spent nearly half his life in custody. He was shot and captured in 2002, at the age of 15, during a firefight with American and Afghan soldiers. During the battle, U.S. Delta Forces soldier Christopher Speer was fatally wounded with a grenade.

The Pentagon charged Khadr with five offences under the Military Commissions Act (MCA), which were written years after Khadr’s alleged crimes.

Khadr’s U.S. lawyer is arguing that the Pentagon should not have retroactively prosecuted Khadr since killing a soldier in conflict was not a war crime until the Bush administration rewrote the laws of war after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

In 2010, Khadr confessed to throwing the grenade that killed Speer as part of a Pentagon plea deal that allowed him to return to Canada to serve the remainder of his eight-year sentence. He later said he could not remember the firefight and only pleaded guilty because he felt it was his “only hope” to get out of Guantanamo.

Democrats Embrace Terror Suspects On Hill During ‘Muslim Advocacy Day’

via Democrats Embrace Terror Suspects On Hill During ‘Muslim Advocacy Day’ – Investors.com.

Two-hundred eighty Muslim “leaders” stormed the U.S. Capitol last week, taking grip-and-grin photos with Democrats and even visiting the office of their national committee chief. Where was security?

We’re curious, because this two-day Islamist lobbying and political muscle flexing — dubbed “National Muslim Advocacy Day and Palestine Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill” — was organized by a radical Muslim Brotherhood umbrella group led by actual terrorism suspects.

At least one of them already has been behind bars, another has been the subject of both FBI and National Security Agency investigations and the rest “should be in jail, not on Capitol Hill” freely roaming the halls of American power, asserted a veteran FBI agent.

“These are leaders of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood in America,” said John Guandolo. Yet “they are moving around the nation’s Capitol freely without any fear of the FBI or anyone else arresting them.”

And that’s precisely what they lobbied against — investigation and prosecution. Hundreds of these radical Muslim “activists” fanned out across the Hill to knock on doors of members of Congress to express their opposition to anti-terrorism investigations in the Muslim community and American mosques.

They also voiced support for a Palestinian state. Observers said their Palestine Advocacy Day was more like Bash Israel Day. And they held “seminars” in various Hill rooms. This was enemy infiltration out in the open, facilitated by Democrats.

Event organizer U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations is made up “entirely of Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas organizations,” Guandolo said on his Understanding the Threat website. Warned CIA veteran Claire Lopez: “Representatives are being targeted in an influence operation by a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood political entity.”

And they are getting help on the inside. Democratic Reps. Andre Carson and Keith Ellison, Congress’ first Muslims, helped coordinate the event. Last June, both lawmakers attended an inaugural USCMO banquet in Washington. Neither text nor video from that dinner has been released to the press.

Carson recently was assigned by Nancy Pelosi to the House Intelligence Committee, putting a close affiliate with Muslim Brotherhood members — even unindicted co-conspirators identified by the Justice Department — on a panel that receives top secret briefings and materials from the U.S. intelligence community.

“The Muslim Brotherhood could view him as a conduit for their own influence operations back into Congress,” Lopez pointed out.

Carson shared the stage at the banquet with founding USCMO board member and radical Brooklyn imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing.

Another USCMO director is Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, whose organization has been identified as an unindicted co-conspirator in a major Hamas terrorist case.

The FBI has told Congress it refuses to conduct outreach with CAIR until its leaders can demonstrate they no longer have operational ties to Hamas leadership. The NSA recently put Awad under surveillance, according to leaked Edward Snowden documents.

USCMO Secretary General Oussama Jammal, moreover, is past president of the Mosque Foundation in Chicago, also named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas case.

Then there’s USCMO director Mazen Mokhtar, who in 2007 was arrested in New Jersey by FBI agents investigating him for ties to an al-Qaida terrorist in Britain who was convicted of plotting to blow up U.S. landmarks and warships, according to court documents.

It’s alarming that Muslim Brotherhood operatives who have stated in their founding documents that their objective is to infiltrate the U.S. government and carry out a “civilization jihad” against America have such a heavy hand inside our congressional leadership.

 

Obama accepts offer to open Turkish mega-mosque in Maryland

via Erdogan, Obama to open Turkish mosque in US: Turkish FM, 20 April 2015. h/t Iron Burka

The presidents of Turkey and the U.S. will open the Turkish-American Culture and Civilization Center in Maryland, Turkey’s foreign minister said Sunday.

Mevlut Cavusoglu, on a three-day visit to Washington, visited the center that also has a middle-sized mosque, and lunched with representatives from the American Muslim community.

“During a phone call, President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan asked President (Barack) Obama to accompany him in opening the center together and President Obama accepted his offer’in principle,’” Cavusoglu told the representatives.

If Obama’s schedule allows at the time of the opening, he will accompany Erdogan.

The complex is built on a large area and consists of a coffee house, gift shops, cultural center, amphitheater and exhibition hall, computer lab, library, Turkish bath/hamam and guest house.

Cavusoglu said the center has been constructed as a place where all Muslims in the U.S. could come together and worship freely.

Recalling that Turkey has contributed to the construction of the center in Maryland, the top diplomat said Turkey has contributed to development and infrastructure projects in Muslim countries, citing Somalia, Djibouti and Myanmar.

“Our duty is to tell the true Islam which is a religion of peace. Islam does not tolerate terrorism. But unfortunately al-Qaeda and Daesh terror groups have tarnished the image of Islam,” he said.


As noted previously in Govt of Turkey Building Massive $100M Mosque Complex…in Maryland:

 Erdogan was jailed for inciting Muslims when he stated:

“The minarets are our bayonets; the domes are our helmets. Mosques are our barracks, the believers are soldiers. This holy army guards my religion. Almighty, Our journey is our destiny, the end is martyrdom.”

It must also be reiterated that the mega-mosque fortress will be used to wage legal jihad against Americans:

Kansas: Fort Riley Jihad Plotter Taught by ISNA Imam Assigned by the FBI

bizarroworld

via Islamic leader tried to mentor terror suspect.

TOPEKA (KSNT) – John T. Booker Jr. Is being charged with plotting a suicide bomb attack on Fort Riley. Booker Jr. Also goes by the name Muhammad Abdullah Hassan. Prosecutors say he told an FBI informant he wanted to kill Americans on behalf of ISIS.

“It’s had a shocking affect,” Omar Hazim has been the Imam at the Islamic center of Topeka for more than 25 years.

Last year the FBI reached out to him, after Booker Jr posted his terrorist intentions on Facebook.

They asked him to help show and explain to Booker Jr. the true Islamic beliefs, “it’s a message of love and tolerance, it’s a message of mercy and respect and forgiveness.”

Hazim then got Booker Jr. Involved in Friday prayers and Sunday prayer classes, teaching the history and beliefs of Islam.

“I wanted to do what I could to try and unravel those ideas and show him over and over and over again what the holy Koran says about acts of terrorism,” says Hazim.

But even with the almost a year of teachings, Booker Jr. still followed through with his initial intentions, going against everything the Islamic community believes. “It’s completely contrary to everything that the Koran teaches and it’s contrary to our life style here,” says Hazim.

Hazim says the community will continue to pray and are glad that no one at Fort Riley or Booker Jr. Was hurt.

A Kansas Muslim leader is claiming he was assigned by the FBI to try and de-radicalize the man who recentlly tried to bomb Fort Riley for Allah. The video can be seen below along with more footage of the Topeka Muslim leader at a press conference in Topeka, KS defending Sharia Law.

There is much more to this story when you consider Imam Omar Hazim’s association with groups like the Midland Islamic Council……. a story for another day……

…in the opinion here at Causing Fitna, this is some really dumb sh%^……


Hazim is blatantly lying to the media – as permitted in Islam – and they don’t even bother to fact check him on his statements. But many others have and the verdict ain’t pretty for non-Muslims.

What About the Good Verses in the Quran?

…there is nothing positive in the Quran for non-Muslims. Period. And there are 527 verses in the Quran that are intolerant to non-Muslims, 109 verses calling on Muslims to make war on non-Muslims.

More via The “Good” in the Koran

The Koran addresses three audiences-Muslims, kafirs and humanity as a whole. In looking for the good, we cannot use verses that advocate good for Muslims, such as a Muslim should not kill another Muslim as kafirs are not Muslims.

Kafirs have many names-unbeliever, infidel, polytheist, agnostics, atheist, and apostate. Every verse that deals with kafirs is negative and/or violent.


Is it any wonder why Booker aka Muhammad Abdullah Hassan was more inspired to wage jihad after receiving direct instruction from an imam of the unindicted co-conspiring ISNA who taught Hassan the Koran?

A year ago, the FBI assured the public and the military that Hassan was not a threat.
