Islamic Supremacist Threats in Europe and the White House

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

The State Department has issued a travel advisory for Americans in Europe this summer. Presumably, that’s because both the Islamic State and al Qaeda have declared their intentions to target Westerners in nations there.

Unfortunately, these jihadist groups have us in their cross-hairs here, as well. That danger is all the greater on both sides of the Atlantic because of the subversive infrastructure-building by the granddaddy of virtually all contemporary Islamic supremacist groups: the Muslim Brotherhood. Brotherhood mosques, front groups and influence operations create the sea in which the violent Islamists swim – and hide.

Not to worry, though. President Obama has just appointed as his Muslim American community liaison a third-generation Muslim Brotherhood operative: Zaki Barzinji. The practical effect of this appointment will be more Brotherhood influence in U.S. policy – and less security for Americans in this country, as well as overseas.

Obama’s Terrorist Friend Visits DC

A new report notes that Labib al Nahhas, a senior official of Ahrar Al-Sham, visited Washington in December 2015, State Department spokesman Mark Toner cited “privacy concerns” on Monday and said he would follow up.

“I do know this individual certainly did not have any meetings that I’m aware of at the State Department,” he said on Tuesday. “I can’t speak to whether we were aware or not aware of his visit or entry into the country. I just don’t have that information.”

What makes this so interesting is that al Nahhas is the leader of an al-Qaeda affiliate that we support — Ahrar al-Sham.

“Ahrar al-Sham is not a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization,” Toner said when Russia recently tried to have them declared a terrorist group. Russia wants them to have a “yellow card”, a terrorist designation, partly because they are against Bashar al-Assad which is exactly the reason the US and the West supports them.

The group is a coalition of multiple Islamist and Salafist units. The group aims to create an Islamic state under Sharia law, and is openly allied with Al-Nusra Front (the branch of Al-Qaeda in Syria) with which it carries out joint operations. Syria, the United Arab Emirates,Russia, Iran and Egypt have designated Ahrar ash-Sham as a terrorist organization and won’t issue the ‘yellow card’ as requested by the UN. That, however, is in support of al-Assad.

It’s hard to believe anyone cares about the massacre of villagers, especially the Christian ones or Alawites (al-Assad is an Alawite) like the people in al-Zara.

On May 13, Al-Sham fighters raided the village of al-Zara, killing and capturing scores of inhabitants in what was described as a massacre.

Ahrar al-Sham has emerged as not just a populist revolutionary force and the most powerful non-ISIL rebel faction in Syria, but allegedly they are questioning the Islamist movement, but I wouldn’t take that to the bank.

Where are the “President lied, people died” protestors now?

Family Security Matters

by DR. ROBIN MCFEE

 

As friends and I got together writing letters for the troops, it struck us how many of our contemporaries are unaware Americans are fighting a war, or that some of military will not return to their native soil alive. I can’t think of any other major conflict where there has been such a disconnection between those who serve, and those who are served. At this time of year, with Memorial Day just a week away, the sacrifice made by so few for so many should be front and center in our consciousness. Alas it may just be another inconvenient truth.

Coming home, the flag that draped my father’s casket as backdrop to reading the newspaper which no longer talks about the military, unless a local person is killed, or a photo op from a Memorial Day service, is in stark contrast from our early days in Iraq and Afghanistan. You’d think there wasn’t a war being waged or Americans in harm’s way, based upon the media coverage, or more accurately, lack thereof.  It made me think of how far we have come as a nation – the good, and the bad, and how the political winds of fortune play a role in the lives of people who risk their security for ours.

Would it surprise anyone to know that more US servicemen and women have died in Afghanistan on Obama’s watch than during the W Bush presidency? The government data on US servicemen/women deaths are clear. Yet where is the public outrage? Where are the protests with clarion calls “Obama Lied, Soldiers Died” being chanted in the streets the way they were when George W. Bush was POTUS? Where is the righteous indignation and concern over military deaths from Code Pink, or the other anti-war protestor groups? Where are the daily front page news items about our brave men and women in uniform who remain in harm’s way?

Sadly the number of flags folded at funeral services over the last 7 years, with the all too familiar phrase “on behalf of a grateful nation” has been greater than the years beforehand, in no small measure due to Obama’s foreign policy in Afghanistan, and even sadder, it does not define or inform his foreign policy either. As an aside, one could of course argue that the number of people – civilians, allies, enemies, and troops – killed due to Obama’s foreign policy errors has eclipsed what has occurred under Bush’s watch.  Beyond the idiotic misnomer Arab Spring which saw allies brought to the brink, is the emergence of ISIS (NOT a JV team!) whose efforts towards Christian genocide has resulted in incalculable deaths. ISIS’ ambition towards extra-regional caliphate has led to untold suffering, loss of irreplaceable historic treasures, and death from the Middle East, to Europe and beyond. Instead of one major group of radical killers and their franchisees (Al Qaeda) we now have two major non state sponsors of terrorism, in addition to a more deadly form of state terrorism sponsor – Iran on Obama’s watch. Then there are deaths associated with Putin unchecked, and Syria unchecked, and Palestinians unchecked, and Iran unchecked (which includes Hezbollah), and, well you get the idea. There’s a lot of bloodshed on his watch, not that you would read about it in the major papers, or see it on the major networks. Clearly there are no “Obama Lied, People Died” protests.

Pakistani with Fake Ecuadorean Passport Enters U.S. via Mexico Multiple Times

Family Security Matters

JUDICIAL WATCH

 

A Pakistani man with a fake passport and residence card from two different South American countries has been caught entering the U.S. illegally through Mexico and federal court documents reveal he has previously crossed into the country undetected by immigration authorities. The distressing case comes less than a month after Judicial Watch reported that an ISIS operative who trained terrorists in Pakistan travels back and forth through the porous southern border from a camp in the Mexican state of Chihuahua not far from El Paso, Texas. His name is Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir, a Kuwaiti who trained hundreds of Al Qaeda fighters in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen, according to JW’s high-ranking Homeland Security sources.

The Pakistani apprehended in the region this month, Javaid Muhammad, is in federal custody in Texas and is scheduled to appear in court on May 20 in McAllen. U.S. Border Patrol agents busted him on May 8, according to court documents obtained by JW, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has taken over the case. Authorities have confiscated Muhammad’s fraudulent Ecuadorean passport and Chilean residence card and he has admitted he’s never visited or resided in either South American country. Muhammad also “admitted to illegally crossing the international boundary of the United States without prior inspection by a United States Immigration Officer,” court files state. The FBI has evidence, including travel records and other government files, that proves Muhammad’s statements to the Border Patrol and FBI “were materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent,” the court documents say.

Ahmed the Clock Boy Inspires Al Qaeda

Moonbattery
Remember Ahmed the Clock Boy, the hate hoaxer who was apparently put up by his Islamic activist father to bring to school a disemboweled alarm clock made to look like an IED? He was feted by liberals for months; now he is providing inspiration to Al Qaeda:
Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula’s new issue of Inspire magazine includes a shout out to the “Clock Boy” while slamming President Obama’s programs to counter violent extremism.
Ahmed Mohamed, 14, was arrested at his Texas high school in 2015 for bringing a homemade clock to school encased in what resembled a small briefcase. The device was seized by his English teacher and the cops were called. He was not charged with any crime.
“Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great,” Obama tweeted in support of boy. A month later, Ahmed met Obama during White House Astronomy Night event on the South Lawn of the White House.
The new al-Qaeda issue featured a picture of the two meeting as well as the clock bomb, with the notation: “Obama, ‘because of his sensitivity towards Muslim discrimination,’ sees an opp to further his PR by acknowledging a brilliant 14 yr old Muslim boy (who in fact even inspired us in a way).”
The Inspire issue features step-by-step photos of how to build a parcel bomb, a magnetic car bomb, and a door-trap bomb.
As The Daily Wire notes,
In recent months, Ahmed, aka Clock Boy, has done quite a lot to tear into the Leftist allegation that he’s somehow an innocent victim of big bad American racists. Actually, Ahmed has single-handedly undermined the myth of the moderate Muslim. After suing the Texas police department, he fled to Qatar, an Islamic hellhole infamous for its abuse of women and subjugation of religious minorities. So much for tolerance. When reports surfaced that Ahmed had met with Muslim Sudanese dictator Omar al-Bashir, we all thought it couldn’t get worse. Well, it did. As The Daily Wire reported, Clock Boy’s “moderate” Muslim father may actually be a 9/11 truther and anti-American agitator.
All of this comes as the White House continues to sow racial strife and propagate the false narrative of “Islamophobia.”
This tendency of our liberal overlords to side with our enemies is what enabled a demagogue to effectively secure the Republican nomination largely on the basis of noisy hostility toward Muslims.
Ahmed the Clock Boy
Lavishly rewarded by Islamophiles for his propaganda coup.

Obama Frees USS Cole Bombing Terrorist

On Thursday morning, sailors on board the USS Cole were lining up for an early lunch. Seventeen of them died as an Al Qaeda bomb on board a fishing boat tore through the hull outside the galley. The dead included 15 men and 2 women, one of whom had a young child. For three weeks the crew of the USS Cole struggled to keep their ship from sinking while working waist deep in water with bucket brigades, sleeping on the deck and living surrounded by the terrible aftermath of the terrorist attack.

The survivors, wounded and whole, received the words “Glory is the Reward of Valor” written on the bent steel removed from the site of the explosion that tore through their ship and their lives.

The President of the United States promised that justice would be done. “To those who attacked them we say: You will not find a safe harbor. We will find you and justice will prevail.”

Despite Clinton’s words, justice did not prevail.

Free Republic

The American government has released two prisoners from Guantanamo Bay, the high profile anti-terrorism prison in Cuba, the Defense Department confirmed on Monday.

The two Libyans, formerly explosives experts for al-Qaeda, were transferred to Senegal.

Salem Abdu Salam Ghereby is thought to have fought in Afghanistan against coalition forces at Usama bin Laden’s Tora Bora “and was associated with senior members of al-Qaeda.”

In 2008, Omar Khalif Mohammed Abu Baker Mahjour Umar was judged likely to “immediately seek out prior associates and reengage in hostilities and extremist support activities.” …
