FOIA: Obama & Clinton Knew About Benghazi Before It Happened

via: JW: Obama Admin Knew About Benghazi Before It Happened

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it obtained more than 100 pages of previously classified “Secret” documents from the Department of Defense (DOD)and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was committed by the al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood-linked “Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman” (BCOAR), and had been planned at least 10 days in advance. Rahman is known as the Blind Sheikh, and is serving life in prison for his involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and other terrorist acts.  The new documents also provide the first official confirmation that shows the U.S. government was aware of arms shipments from Benghazi to Syria.  The documents also include an August 2012 analysis warning of the rise of ISIS and the predicted failure of the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.

The documents were released in response to a court order in accordance with a May 15, 2014, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against both the DOD and State Department seeking communications between the two agencies and congressional leaders “on matters related to the activities of any agency or department of the U.S. government at the Special Mission Compound and/or classified annex in Benghazi.”

Spelling and punctuation is duplicated in this release without corrections.

Defense Department document from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), dated September 12, 2012, the day after the Benghazi attack, details that the attack on the compound had been carefully planned by the BOCAR terrorist group “to kill as many Americans as possible.”  The document was sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Obama White House National Security Council.  The heavily redacted Defense Department “information report” says that the attack on the Benghazi facility “was planned and executed by The Brigades of the Captive Omar Abdul Rahman (BCOAR).”  The group subscribes to “AQ ideologies:”

The attack was planned ten or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing of Aboyahiye ((ALALIBY)) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 atacks on the World Trade Center buildings.

“A violent radical,” the DIA report says, is “the leader of BCOAR is Abdul Baset ((AZUZ)), AZUZ was sent by ((ZAWARI)) to set up Al Qaeda (AQ) bases in Libya.”  The group’s headquarters was set up with the approval of a “member of the Muslim brother hood movement…where they have large caches of weapons.  Some of these caches are disguised by feeding troughs for livestock.  They have SA-7 and SA-23/4 MANPADS…they train almost every day focusing on religious lessons and scriptures including three lessons a day of jihadist ideology.”

The Defense Department reported the group maintained written documents, in “a small rectangular room, approximately 12 meters by 6 meters…that contain information on all of the AQ activity in Libya.”

(Azuz is again blamed for the Benghazi attack in an October 2012 DIA document.)

The DOD documents also contain the first official documentation that the Obama administration knew that weapons were being shipped from the Port of Benghazi to rebel troops in Syria. An October 2012 report confirms:

Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.

During the immediate aftermath of, and following the uncertainty caused by, the downfall of the ((Qaddafi)) regime in October 2011 and up until early September of 2012, weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles located in Benghazi, Libya were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the ports of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The Syrian ports were chosen due to the small amount of cargo traffic transiting these two ports. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo.

The DIA document further details:

The weapons shipped from Syria during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s and 125mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.  The numbers for each weapon were estimated to be: 500 Sniper rifles, 100 RPG launchers with 300 total rounds, and approximately 400 howitzers missiles [200 ea – 125mm and 200ea – 155 mm.]

The heavily redacted document does not disclose who was shipping the weapons.

Another DIA report, written in August 2012 (the same time period the U.S. was monitoring weapons flows from Libya to Syria), said that the opposition in Syria was driven by al Qaeda and other extremist Muslim groups: “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.” The growing sectarian direction of the war was predicted to have dire consequences for Iraq, which included the “grave danger” of the rise of ISIS:

The deterioration of the situation has dire consequences on the Iraqi situation and are as follows:

This creates the ideal atmosphere for AQI [al Qaeda Iraq] to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi, and will provide a renewed momentum under the presumption of unifying the jihad among Sunni Iraq and Syria, and the rest of the Sunnis in the Arab world against what it considers one enemy, the dissenters. ISI could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.

Some of the “dire consequences” are blacked out but the DIA presciently warned one such consequence would be the “renewing facilitation of terrorist elements from all over the Arab world entering into Iraqi Arena.”

From a separate lawsuit, the State Department produced a document created the morning after the Benghazi attack by Hillary Clinton’s offices, and the Operations Center in the Office of the Executive Secretariat that was sent widely through the agency, including to Joseph McManus (then-Hillary Clinton’s executive assistant).  At 6:00 am, a few hours after the attack, the top office of the State Department sent a “spot report” on the “Attack on U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi” that makes no mention of videos or demonstrations:

Four COM personnel were killed and three were wounded in an attack by dozens of fighters on the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi beginning approximately 1550 Eastern Time….

The State Department has yet to turn over any documents from the secret email accounts of Hillary Clinton and other top State Department officials.

“These documents are jaw-dropping. No wonder we had to file more FOIA lawsuits and wait over two years for them.  If the American people had known the truth – that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and other top administration officials knew that the Benghazi attack was an al-Qaeda terrorist attack from the get-go – and yet lied and covered this fact up – Mitt Romney might very well be president. And why would the Obama administration continue to support the Muslim Brotherhood even after it knew it was tied to the Benghazi terrorist attack and to al Qaeda? These documents also point to connection between the collapse in Libya and the ISIS war – and confirm that the U.S. knew remarkable details about the transfer of arms from Benghazi to Syrian jihadists,” stated Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president.  “These documents show that the Benghazi cover-up has continued for years and is only unraveling through our independent lawsuits. The Benghazi scandal just got a whole lot worse for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

Muslim Influence Operations at Texas A&M San Antonio

Source: Muslim Influence Operations at Texas A&M San Antonio

by Roy White

“Influence operations” by America’s enemies use soft techniques such as strategic communications, diplomacy and public relations to accomplish a strategic goal in lieu of military force. That goal for Islamists is for Sharia law to become law for everywhere in the world.  Not necessarily today nor tomorrow but no doubt the end goal is Shariah.

A recent example of influence operations is the “clock boy” hoax of Ahmad Mohamed in Irving, TX.  A sympathetic press with quotes from ill-informed politicians, celebrities orchestrated by the Council on American Islamic Relations officials paints the desired picture of hatred and prejudice against Muslims. The resultant “back story” showing the holes in the entire story fails to make the front pages and hence unknowing Americas are duped by this type of “influence operations.”

A similar “influence operation” is occurring here in San Antonio at Texas A&M San Antonio thanks to a partnership between President Dr. Cynthia Teniente-Matson (210.784.1600, email here) and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).  On October 7th the school’s chapter of the Society of Human Relations Managers (SHRM) is hosting a two hour seminar on “Islam in the Workplace”.

This exact same presentation was originally presented this spring by the San Antonio SHRM chapter. Sarwat Husain, Executive Director for San Antonio Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), was scheduled to speak. She was removed from the speakers list when public outrage resulted in 10,000 emails to the SHRM president asking why an organization identified as supporting Islamic terrorism by Egypt, UAE and U.S. government officials would be permitted to speak to their members.

CAIR did not quit but played the “victimization card” claiming to SHRM supporters that CAIR’s removal was further evidence of “Islamophobia” and found a willing supporter of this argument in the SHRM Chapter sponsor leader at TAMU San Antonio, Dr Adrian Guardia, Dept. of Business (210.784.2332).

Members of the SHRM Board and TAMU officials failed to respond to information from the TAMU Student Body president, Allison Garcia who passed along documents from the FBI and Congress showing CAIR’s ties to known terrorist organizations.

Husain has a history of conveniently deceiving listeners. The Islamic concept of “taqiyyah’ makes this fully acceptable.  In 2009 Husain said:

“For many months, Israel has denied humanitarian aid to Gaza’s civilian population, a blockade that by itself can be regarded as an act of war under international law.… This is state-sponsored terrorism at its best.”

The facts are exactly the opposite. Israel provided these resources and much more:

  • 10,544 patients & companions left Gaza for medical treatment in Israel.
  • 382 emergency evacuations from Gaza for medical purposes.
  • 572 trucks, 5,000 tons of medical supplies entered the Strip.
  • Hadassah Medical Organization in Jerusalem donates $3 million in aid to treat Palestinians in Israel.

This quote from Husain is equally untrue as the statistics reveal. “No other country in the world have terrorized as many people for so long as Israel has for more than half a century…“

Some 11,000,000 Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, or 0.3 percent, died during the sixty years of fighting Israel, or just 1 out of every 315 Muslim fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent of the 11 million who perished were killed by fellow Muslims.

Ms. Husain and others would do harm to Islam if they were to discuss two very important Islamic concepts, “tayseer” and “darura” that employers should know. This example of a protecting Islam by using a half-truth or “kitman” is in very handy when conducting “influence operations.”

Koran 4:28 grants Muslims who live in non-Shariah compliant areas, “tayseer” or “lightening of the load” exception.  This would apply to nearly all jobs where Muslims are employed.  The second Islamic concept, “darura” or necessity is also important. If it is necessary, then what is forbidden is permitted.  If a Muslim is hungry and there is no halal (Sharia compliant) food, then he can eat any food. If a Muslim is where he cannot pray, then the prayer can be made up later.  If Sharia law has not been implemented, then a Muslim may handle pork, for example, with no consequences.

These two Islamic concepts gives Islamic justification for fighting frivolous lawsuits brought forward by Muslim employees.

The “influence operations” is complete when Human Relations managers go back to their offices and give business owners incomplete interpretation of Islamic law thus causing the employer to “submit” (Islam means submission) to the wishes of the Muslim employee.  If employers want accurate information on dealing with Islam in the workplace the last group to listen to would be CAIR, understanding “tayseer” and “durura” is far better legal advice. If you want accurate information write to and we will connect you to the honest legal and Islamic resources.

Florida: Democrat Leader Leaves Job for Radical Islamic Group

Source: Democrat Leader Leaves Job for Radical Islamic Group | Frontpage Mag

For over six years, Tamara “Tammy” Ayon was leading the Democratic Party in Broward County, Florida. But that changed this year, when she left her position as Executive Director of the party to take a job with an Islamist group with ties to terrorism and bigotry. And while both groups work to involve themselves with politicians, the goals and associations of the two are as distant from each other as the difference between a petty thief and a mass murderer.

Emerge USA  is an Islamist group that attempts to dupe politicians into attending its functions by seducing them with a “Muslim vote.” Regardless of the group’s patriotic-sounding name, Emerge is nothing more than a front for anti-American and anti-Israeli extremists.

A founder and co-chair of Emerge, Khurrum Wahid, is a South Florida attorney who has built his name on representing high profile terrorists. This includes members of al-Qaeda and financiers of the Taliban. Wahid previously served as a legal advisor for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR has been cited by the U.S. government for its involvement with Hamas fundraising and has been labeled a terrorist group by the UAE government. According to the Miami New Times, Wahid himself was placed on a federal terrorist watch list in 2011.

Co-founder and trustee of Emerge, Saif Ishoof, is a former organizer and contact for the extreme anti-Israel group, March for Justice. While with March for Justice, Ishoof organized an event at the University of Miami, in October 2002, which labeled then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon “the world’s longest standing terrorist” and Israel an “illegitimate state.” Ishoof said he was “outraged” that his former university would host then-senior advisor to Sharon, Raanan Gissin, referring to Gissin as “a mouthpiece of state sponsored terrorism.”

For the past two years, Emerge has featured as a speaker at its annual events Islamic lecturer and follower of Iranian terror leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Sayed Ammar Nakshawani. In a speech made by Nakshawani, titled ‘Sayed Khomeini’s Quds Day,’ Nakshawani calls for the destruction of Israel, stating, “The shame in this world is that, if we put ourselves down to a two-state solution, we would allow a country which has broken 60 UN resolutions to have their own freedom of peace. It is barbaric that this Zionist state is allowed to continue.”

This past June, less than two months into Ayon’s new employment, Emerge sponsored an iftar (break-the-fast) dinner at the Darul Uloom mosque, in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Several al-Qaeda terrorists have spent time at Darul Uloom. “Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla was a student at the mosque, and now-deceased al-Qaeda Global Operations Chief Adnan el-Shukrijumah was a prayer leader there. The imam of Darul Uloom, Maulana Shafayat Mohamed, has been thrown off a number of boards in Broward County for his outspokenness against homosexuals.

In August, Ayon represented Emerge at ICNA Relief’s fifth annual Back to School Giveaway program, held in Miramar, Florida.

ICNA Relief is the main charity of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the US affiliate of South Asian Islamist group Jamaat-e-Islami. Jamaat-e-Islami’s militant wing, Hizbul Mujahideen, owned the Pakistani compound where Osama bin Laden was killed at. ICNA has been linked to terrorist financing and has used the web to promote a number of terrorist groups, including Hamas, al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and the Taliban. ICNA conducts annual functions along with the Muslim American Society (MAS), a group that was also named a terror organization by UAE.

Earlier this month, Ayon represented Emerge at the annual convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), held in Chicago, Illinois. Like CAIR, ISNA was named by the US government as a party to the financing of Hamas.

Speakers at the ISNA convention included: Jamal Badawi, who was also named by the US as a party to Hamas funding and who, in his book ‘Gender Equity in Islam,’ justifies the beating of women by their husbands; Siraj Wahhaj, who was named by the US government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center; and Zulfiqar Ali Shah, who was the South Asia Director of KindHearts, a Hamas charity that was shut down by the US government in February 2006.

While emerge USA works hard to attain legitimacy by enticing politicians to attend its functions, the group operates to promote an extremely disturbing and radical agenda. This is evidenced by its leadership, which is publicly linked to terror and bigotry, and by the groups and individuals Emerge chooses to align itself with.

It was Ayon’s decision to go from being an Executive Director in the Democratic Party to a leader of a national Islamist group. As such, she has adopted all of Emerge’s associations and history and has exposed herself as a ‘fellow traveler’ and enemy of democracy – the same democracy she used to fool people into believing she was a part of.


Muslim History vs Western Fantasy: The ‘Refugee Crisis’ in Context

A painting by Bertalan Székely commemorates a 1552 Hungarian victory against Muslim Turks besieging Eger.

via: Muslim History vs Western Fantasy: The ‘Refugee Crisis’ in Context | Raymond Ibrahim

One of the primary reasons Islamic and Western nations are “worlds apart” is because the way they understand the world is worlds apart. Whereas Muslims see the world through the lens of history, the West has jettisoned or rewritten history to suit its ideologies.

This dichotomy of Muslim and Western thinking is evident everywhere.  When the Islamic State declared that it will “conquer Rome” and “break its crosses,” few in the West realized that those are the verbatim words and goals of Islam’s founder and his companions as recorded in Muslim sources—words and goals that prompted over a thousand years of jihad on Europe.

Most recently, the Islamic State released a map of the areas it plans on expanding into over the next five years.  The map includes European nations such as Portugal, Spain, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Greece, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Romania, Armenia, Georgia, Crete, Cyprus, and parts of Russia.

The reason these European nations are included in the Islamic State’s map is simple.  According to Islamic law, once a country has been conquered (or “opened,” as it’s called in the euphemistic Arabic), it becomes Islamic in perpetuity.

This, incidentally, is the real reason Muslims despise Israel.  It’s not due to sympathy for the Palestinians—if so, neighboring Arab nations would’ve absorbed them long ago (just as they would be absorbing all of today’s Muslim refugees).

No, Israel is hated because the descendants of “apes and pigs”—to use the Koran’s terminology—dare to rule land that was once “opened” by jihad and therefore must be returned to Islam.  (Read more about Islam’s “How Dare You?!” phenomenon to understand the source of Islamic rage, especially toward Israel.)

All the aforementioned European nations are also seen as being currently “occupied” by Christian “infidels” and in need of “liberation.”  This is why jihadi organizations refer to terrorist attacks on such countries as “defensive jihads.”

One rarely heard about Islamic designs on European nations because they are large and blocked together, altogether distant from the Muslim world.  Conversely, tiny Israel is right in the heart of the Islamic world—hence why most jihadi aspirations were traditionally geared toward the Jewish state: it was more of a realistic conquest.

Now, however, that the “caliphate” has been reborn and is expanding before a paralytic West, dreams of reconquering portions of Europe—if not through jihad, then through migration—are becoming more plausible, perhaps even more so than conquering Israel.

Because of their historical experiences with Islam, some central and east European nations are aware of Muslim aspirations.  Hungary’s prime minister even cited his nation’s unpleasant past under Islamic rule (in the guise of the Ottoman Empire) as reason to disallow Muslim refugees from entering.

But for more “enlightened” Western nations—that is, for idealistic nations that reject or rewrite history according to their subjective fantasies—Hungary’s reasoning is unjust, unhumanitarian, and racist.

To be sure, most of Europe has experience with Islamic depredations.  As late as the seventeenth century, even distant Iceland was being invaded by Muslim slave traders. Roughly 800 years earlier, in 846, Rome was sacked and the Vatican defiled by Muslim raiders.

Some of the Muslims migrating to Italy vow to do the same today, and Pope Francis acknowledges it.  Yet, all the same, he suggests that “you can take precautions, and put these people to work.”  (We’ve seen this sort of thinking before: the U.S. State Department cites a lack of “job opportunities” as reason for the existence of the Islamic State).

Perhaps because the U.K., Scandinavia, and North America were never conquered and occupied by the sword of Islam—unlike those southeast European nations that are resisting Muslim refugees—they feel free to rewrite history according to their subjective ideals, specifically, that historic Christianity is bad and all other religions and people are good (the darker and/or more foreign the better).

Indeed, countless are the books and courses on the “sins” of Christian Europe, from the Crusades to colonialism.  (Most recently, a book traces the rise of Islamic supremacism in Egypt to the disciplining of a rude Muslim girl by a European nun.)

This “new history”—particularly that Muslims are the historic “victims” of “intolerant” Western Christians—has metastasized everywhere, from high school to college and from Hollywood to the news media (which are becoming increasingly harder to distinguish from one another).

When U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama condemned medieval Christians as a way to relativize Islamic State atrocities—or at best to claim that religion, any religion, is never the driving force of violence—he was merely being representative of the mainstream way history is taught in the West.

Even otherwise sound books of history contribute to this distorted thinking.  While such works may mention “Ottoman expansion” into Europe, the Islamic element is omitted.  Thus Turks are portrayed as just another competitive people, out to carve a niche for themselves in Europe, no differently than rival Christian empires.   That the “Ottomans” (or “Saracens,” or “Arabs,” or “Moors,” or “Tatars”) were operating under the distinctly Islamic banner of jihad—just like the Islamic State is today—that connection is never made.

Generations of pseudo history have led the West to think that, far from being suspicious or judgmental of them, Muslims must be accommodated—say, by allowing them to migrate into the West in mass.  Perhaps then they’ll “like us”?

Such is progressive wisdom.

Meanwhile, back in the school rooms of much of the Muslim world, children continue to be indoctrinated in glorifying and reminiscing over the jihadi conquests of yore—conquests by the sword and in the name of Allah.  While the progressive West demonizes European/Christian history—when I was in elementary school, Christopher Columbus was a hero, when I got into college, he became a villain—Mehmet the Conqueror, whose atrocities against Christian Europeans make the Islamic State look like a bunch of boy scouts, is praised every year in “secular” Turkey on the anniversary of the savage sack Constantinople.

The result of Western fantasies and Islamic history is that Muslims are now entering the West, unfettered, in the guise of refugees who refuse to assimilate with the “infidels” and who form enclaves, or in Islamic terminology, ribats—frontier posts where the jihad is waged on the infidel, one way or the other.

Nor is this mere conjecture.  The Islamic State is intentionally driving the refugee phenomenon and has promised to send half a million people—mostly Muslim—into Europe.  It claims that 4,000 of these refugees are its own operatives: “Just wait….  It’s our dream that there should be a caliphate not only in Syria but in all the world, and we will have it soon, inshallah [Allah willing].”

It is often said that those who ignore history are destined to repeat it.  What does one say of those who rewrite history in a way that demonizes their ancestors while whitewashing the crimes of their forebears’ enemies?

The result is before us.  History is not repeating itself; sword waving Muslims are not militarily conquering Europe.  Rather, they are being allowed to walk right in.

Perhaps a new aphorism needs to be coined for our times: Those who forget or ignore history are destined to be conquered by those who remember and praise it.


Minnesota leads the U.S. in recruiting ISIS terrorists

ISIS, al Shabaab, al Qaeda, HAMAS, CAIR – they all have one thing in common. via Minnesota leads U.S. in recruiting ISIL terrorists, federal report finds –  h/t , Jihad Watch

Minnesota leads the nation in the number of people who have left or sought to leave the country to fight with terrorists aligned with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in Syria, according to a scathing congressional report that says the U.S. and western countries have failed to disrupt the flow of combatants to the Middle East.

Released Tuesday by the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security, the report specifically cites two Somali-American Minnesotans who joined or tried to join ISIL, highlighting its online recruiting success through peer-to-peer recruiting that relies on social media and sophisticated online messaging techniques.

Young fighters from at least 19 states have tried to join terrorists in Syria since the start of that country’s civil war in 2011. Minnesota recruits made up 26 percent of the sample of 58 cases reviewed by the committee’s bipartisan task force. California and New York had the second most recruits, with each state making up 12 percent, according to findings.

“This report is alarming and it’s really very worrisome,” said Sadik Warfa, deputy director of the Global Somali Diaspora based in Minneapolis. “I worry about the stigma and the prospect of our community being marginalized. But in the end, it’s up to us as Somali-Americans to really change our image. And as Minnesotans, we need to be asking what can we do to put these kinds of people into our mainstream here instead of over there.”

More than 250 Americans have attempted or succeeded in reaching Syria and Iraq to fight with terrorist groups, intelligence officials estimate. “We have largely failed to stop Americans from traveling overseas to join jihadists,” the task force declared. “A handful of suspects were stopped in other countries, but it appears the majority — 85 percent — still managed to evade American law enforcement on its way to the conflict zone.”

 The task force said it could identify only 28 cases in which federal authorities stopped suspects before they left for the Middle East. Eight of those involved Minnesotans who conspired since March 2014 to leave the U.S. for Syria but who were stopped by FBI agents. Those men, all Somali-Americans, are in custody. Three have pleaded guilty in recent weeks to conspiring to join ISIL.

Those targeted for recruiting tend to be men in their early 20s, although more than 30 American women have joined or attempted to join ISIL. Among them was Yusra Ismail, 20, of St. Paul, who last year was charged with misusing a passport to travel to Syria, where her family says she now is working as a nurse.

“Today, we are witnessing the largest global convergence of jihadists in history,” the task force noted. “Individuals from more than 100 countries have migrated to the conflict zone in Syria and Iraq since 2011. Over 25,000 foreign fighters have traveled to the battlefield to enlist.”

Locally, the FBI office in the Twin Cities recently added a fourth anti-terrorism squad to its intelligence operations related to people in the Twin Cities interested in becoming jihadists. At the same time — and separately — the office is deeply involved in building better community relations with the Somali community, pledging that those programs and relationships will never dovetail into intelligence gathering operations.

In Washington, U.S. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn, said the report “only underscores the urgent need for adequate resources to fight terrorist recruitment.” He noted the need to build stronger community outreach programs while refraining from stereotyping. “It’s important that we don’t indiscriminately target members of one community,” he said.

U.S. authorities have interdicted only a fraction of the hundreds of Americans who sought to travel to conflict zones in Syria and Iraq, researchers found, and several dozen of those managed to get back into the U.S. The nation still lacks a national strategy to combat terrorist travel, the report found.

“There is currently no comprehensive global database of foreign fighter names,” the report stated. “Instead, countries including the United States rely on a patchwork system for swapping extremist identities, increasing the odds foreign fighters will slip through the cracks.”

How about starting with a database that already exists – for example, the passport and visa databases? Or perhaps the no-fly database?

As for fighting terrorist recruitment, Franken should be adamant about halting resettlement of Muslims to Minnesota, shutting down the jihad-recruiting mosques and Muslim businesses, and deporting large numbers of terror-linked Muslims in his state. But worse than doing nothing, he aids and abets jihad with his “refraining from stereotyping” rhetoric.

Kansas Univ. Law School Teaching Sharia


A watered-down version anyway, via Defining the Narrative

When Kansas debated and passed American Laws for American/Kansas Courts in 2012, one of the arguments against it was “It’s a solution looking for a problem”.  The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) used the same mantra against the Missouri Legislature this year, which narrowly failed to over-ride Governor Jay Nixon’s veto of SB267 on Wednesday according to this article at Missouri Lawyers Weekly.  (H/T Creeping Sharia)

The Kansas City, Missouri attorney Ahsan Latif has hung out his shingle specializing in Sharia Law. Little surprise here considering that just a few miles to the West at Kansas University Law School there are classes that teach Sharia to aspiring young law students.  The textbook reads like you would expect; revised history and a sanitized theological discussion, soothing the non-inquisitive mind and ignorant spirit that its just “freedom of religion” and no different than Jewish Halakhah or Catholic Canon.  Of course, the sanitized Sharia version leaves out all the gory stuff like dismemberment for thieves and pow’s, execution for apostates (o8.1; “When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.”), homosexuals (p17.1 “Kill the one who sodomizes and the one who lets it be done to him.”), wine-bibbers (p14.2-1, “Scourge whoever drinks wine…if he drinks it a fourth time kill him.”) atheists (o9.0 “The Caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim.”), and anyone of the Jewish or Christian persuasion who does not “submit” to the rule of Islam.  Sharia also obliges the Muslim adherent, male or female, to circumcision (e4.3), and despite Muslim claims to the contrary, there is no age limit for marriage of girls.  A high percentage in the Islamic world are given (for dowry) in marriage by their fathers under the age of 16, many before puberty, such as the recent case in Yemen resulting in the death of the 8 yr old child.  This is not uncommon in Sharia controlled states. But the sanitized version will treat this as an outlier, a regional or custom related practice, when in reality under sharia, the family determines the age.

Touted as mainly for use by Muslims for “family matters”, the sanitized version also leaves out the fact that a woman’s testimony is worth half the value of a man’s and she rates behind any male heirs who get the first shares of the estate right after the mosque,  and a rape victim is generally to blame for her plight and she could be shamed, outcast or worse.  It is not uncommon for rape victims to be beaten or stoned for adultery, fornication, and/or “honor killed”, under sharia as discussed in this article by Hasan Mahmud.

The Sharia that is taught at KU and is shown to the general public also whitewashes Jihad as the “inner struggle”, ignoring the fact that this one line is cherry picked from 8 pages of directives concerning the Jihad (Holy War, o9.0) “to war against non-Muslims…signifying warfare to establish the religion (Islam)…” and presents Hadith’s like Bukhari quoting Muhammad as saying, “I have been commanded to fight people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and perform the prayer, and pay zakat . If they say it, they have saved their blood and possession from me, except for the rights of Islam over them.”  The remaining headings under “Jihad” are titled: “The Obligatory Character of Jihad”,  “Who is Obliged to Fight in Jihad”, “The Objectives of Jihad” (“The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians…[and] fights all other people until they become Muslim.”), “The Rules of Warfare”, “Truces”, “The Spoils of Battle”. This section on “Jihad” is immediately followed by, “Non-Muslim Subjects of the Islamic State (Dhimmi)”.  Now I ask you, does that sound like that very personal, struggle within ones own self to submit to Allah and maintain one’s faith?

One other important aspect to Sharia is that it codifies lying, or “deception”, in order to advance the cause of Islam (r8.2) and stay out of trouble with one’s wife!  Aside from the obvious advantage of keeping the wife deceived, “Taqiyya” (deception) is employed especially when Muslims are outnumbered, as a minority of a host society, in order to gain the trust and deceive the host, until a majority of Muslims can use politics, education, or force to overpower it.  Sound familiar yet?  Click here for more on Sharia.

You see, the objective of Islam is not to be equal, just as CAIR co-Founder Omar Ahmad stated, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.

Then there is the proposed “Blasphemy Law” that is being called for by Muslims around the world, which would make it a crime against humanity to criticize Islam.  Immediately after Barack Obama gave his infamous speech, declaring “The future does not belong to those who would slander the prophet” at the 2012 United Nations General Assembly, in the wake of the Benghazi terrorist attack (which he and Hillary Clinton blamed on an anti-Muhammad video), Muslims from around the world and closer to home made the hue and cry for freedom of speech to be made criminal.

Dhimmitude follows jihad. via 15-year-old gunman of Iraqi-Kurdish background visited Parramatta Mosque before shooting rampage

THE gunman who shot dead a police staffer was a 15-year-old who had visited Parramatta Mosque on his way to commit murder.

The teenager, a naturalised Australian of Iraqi-Kurdish background who arrived with his family from Iran, had walked to the police headquarters in Charles Street from his home in north Parramatta before opening fire on a civilian police employee.

The victim was identified as Curtis Cheng, a 17-year veteran of the police finance department, Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said today.

Mr Cheng — a father-of-two, of a son and a daughter — was shot in point blank range by the teen as he left work yesterday just after 4.30pm.

Speaking at a press conference today, Mr Scipione said the attack was “politically motivated and therefore linked to terrorism”.

Police are today trying to trackdown the teenage killer’s family who may have left the area.

Witnesses have told The Saturday Telegraph that after shooting dead the civilian employee, the teenager ran up and down in front of police headquarters waving his handgun in the air and shouting: “Allah. Allah.”

It was then that two special constables on security duty ran from the police building and shot the gunman dead.

Police are trying to find out who radicalised the teenager.

He had no identification on him and it is understood to be his brother who rang police and said he thought he knew who the gunman was.

The chairman of Parramatta Mosque, Neil El-Kadomi, said he was contacted by police on Friday night and shown a photograph of the gunman who entered the mosque before the attack.

The Sunni mosque is about 15 minutes walk from the State Crime Command headquarters on Charles Street.

Ban Sunni mosques, ban Muslim immigration.

Seven News said Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar was at a talk given by Hizb ut-Tahrir at nearby Parramatta Mosque just hours before he donned a black robe and killed finance worker Curtis Cheng outside NSW Police headquarters in Parramatta.

It has also emerged that the shooter’s sister flew out of Australia on a flight bound for the Middle East 24-hours before the terror attack.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, a spokesman for Hizb ut-Tahrir in Australia, Uthman Badar would not comment on the existence of any links between Farhad and his organisation.

It is also understood Farhad’s sister Shadi went missing on Thursday and flew out of Australia on a Singapore Airlines flight bound for Istanbul and may be attempting to reach Iraq or Syria.

Her family told police she had taken all her belongings.

“NSW Police yesterday executed a warrant at a mosque in Parramatta,” police said in a statement Sunday.

“The warrant was undertaken by arrangement with leadership at the mosque who provided full assistance to police at all times.”

“Yesterday, Prime Minister Turnbull and (NSW) Premier Mike Baird had a long conversation with not only… relevant agencies but also leaders in the Muslim community,” Bishop told the ABC on Sunday.

“We’re certainly reaching out to the leaders of the Muslim community but working with the families at a grassroots local level.

Except the “Muslim leaders” are, as usual, the problem.
