An ISIS suicide bomber in Iraq who detonated a truck bomb at an army base outside Mosul has been identified as a British citizen who was held at the U.S. detention center in Guantanamo, Cuba.

Ronald Fiddler, also known as Jamal al-Harith after he converted to Islam in the 1990s, was captured in a Taliban prison in 2002.  He was suspected of having links to Osama bin Laden and was transferred to Guantanamo.

Al-Harith claimed he was mistreated at the prison camp and that British agents were complicit.  He was transferred back to the U.K. in 2004 and was awarded a million pounds in compensation.

USA Today:

He was announced as a suicide bomber who targeted coalition forces outside Mosul this week when ISIS released a picture of him smiling in a 4×4 that was seen in video footage speeding down a track. ISIS claimed Harith caused multiple casualties, according to the Times of London.

Harith, 50, traveled to Syria to join the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL, in 2014, raising fears that the money given to him had been passed on to ISIS. He was known to fellow militants as Abu-Zakariya al-Britani.

Harith, who was accused of having links to Osama bin Laden, was held in Guantanamo Bay without charge for two years after he was discovered in a Taliban prison in Afghanistan in 2001, the Times of London reported.

Manchester-born Harith’s brother Leon Jameson told the newspaper that his brother “wasted his life.”

“It is him, I can tell by his smile,” he said of the ISIS image. “If it is true then I’ve lost a brother, so another family (member) gone.”

Memo to ISIS: Make sure you send a thank-you note to the British government.  A million pounds buys a lot of bombs to kill innocent civilians

New Papers Reveal Obama State Dept Knew Benghazi Attack Not Caused by Protests

Family Security Matters

by MICHAEL W. CHAPMAN

State Department documents released through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by the government watchdog Judicial Watch reveal, contrary to Obama administration claims, the State Department knew as early as Sept. 12, 2012 that the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya was a “direct breaching attack.” It was not sparked “under the cover of a protest” or in response to an anti-Islamic YouTube video.

Commenting on one specific document, a Sept. 12, 2012 email summary of a conversation between then-Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy with congressional staffers, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “This document removes any further doubt that the State Department and the Obama administration knew immediately after the assault on Benghazi that it was a well-orchestrated terrorist attack and not a ‘spontaneous demonstration’ over a ‘hateful video,’ as the Obama administration repeatedly claimed.”

“These documents show that the Benghazi scandal is not over … not by a long shot,” said Fitton.

The Muslim Brotherhood Is – and Must be Designated as – a Terrorist Organization

Secure Freedom Minute fsm logo

SECURE FREEDOM MINUTE

The next, necessary step in the national security course-correction President Donald Trump has promised requires the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as what it is – a terrorist organization.

For years, presidents of both parties have labored under the illusion that the Brothers were actually useful and reliable “partners” in countering what was euphemistically known as “violent extremism.” Among other things, that epic strategic mistake prompted President Obama to work with the Muslim Brotherhood to supplant friendly governments across the Middle East.

President Trump’s predecessors also legitimated and enabled the Brotherhood’s operatives here. Yet, they are Sharia-supremacists, who share completely the ideology and agenda of terrorist organizations like al Qaeda, the Islamic State and Boko Haram.

Mr. Trump’s oath of office requires him to defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. To do so, he must designate the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood.

Aliens Guaranteed Entry Into the U.S.?

Family Security Matters

by MICHAEL CUTLER

Irresponsible incendiary rhetoric spewed by politicians and members of the media, in reaction to the executive order signed by President Trump to temporarily suspend the entry into the U.S. of aliens from a limited number of countries that are associated with terrorism, whether they had been issued visas, has fired up throngs of demonstrators in New York City and elsewhere.

President Trump began his executive order by noting how failures of the immigration system enabled terrorists to carry out the murder of 3,000 innocent people in the United States on 9/11.

The 9/11 Commission was crystal clear about the ways that failures of the immigration system enabled not only the 9/11 terrorists, but others, to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparation.  We have seen similar attacks in the years since as I noted in my article, “Reflections On 9/11’S Vulernabilities.”

The report, “9/11 and  Terrorist TravelStaff Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.” began with this first paragraph:

You know who’s really making us more unsafe? democrats who lie and empower ISIS

 

Flopping Aces

As you know, Donald Trump issued a temporary suspension of immigration and travel for the seven countries that obama compiled and was voted into law by democrats. Although it is clearly spelled out as temporary suspension and it is clearly not a religious ban (the 400 million Muslims in Indonesia, Malaysia and Pakistan are excluded for some reason) democrats persist spreading fake news.

MUHAMMAD AND FORCED CONVERSIONS TO ISLAM: The true meaning of “no compulsion in religion.”

Frontpage Mag

What are we to make of the glaring contradiction between the Koran’s claim that “there is no compulsion in religion” (2:256) and the many other verses that call for war, slavery, and death to those who refuse to submit to Islam (9:5, et al)—to say nothing of the militant behavior of the prophet of Allah, Muhammad?  This is the question Stephen M. Kirby examines in his new book, Islam’s Militant Prophet: Muhammad and Forced Conversion to Islam

Rather than offer speculations or cite nearly 1,400 years of Islamic history that is heavy laden with forced conversions, Kirby answers the question in an objective and meticulous fashion—in a fashion that any Muslim will be hard pressed to counter: he focuses exclusively on the career of Muhammad, from its beginnings in 610 till his death in 632, as recorded in Islam’s primary sources, the Koran and Hadith, and as understood or interpreted by Islam’s most authoritative scholars, such as Ibn al-Kathir.  Along the way, readers are provided useful explanations—again, directly from Islam’s learned scholars themselves—of arcane or misunderstood doctrines, such as abrogation, which is essential for any exegesis.

The long and short of it all?

The command of “no compulsion in Islam” was a unique command that had doctrinal authority for only a little over two years.  It was abrogated both by the Sunnah and the Koran.  Its short lifetime was preceded and followed by commands that non-Muslims were to be given the option of converting to Islam, fighting to the death, or, at times, paying the Jizyah.  Muhammad was indeed the militant prophet of a militant religion that supported forced conversions to Islam.

Triggering: A Sharia State of Mind

Family Security Matters

by EDWARD CLINE

TRIGGER WARNING!!!

This column can be deemed Trigger Warning-worthy because it t mocks trigger warning addicts and others dependent on post-adolescence pacifiers.

Short of declaring reality off-limits, the number of things being declared persona non grata by college students seems to be multiplying.

However, is it my imagination or are today’s college students establishing a kind of secular Sharia, sans a mystical deity, without possessing an inkling of knowledge of Islamic law? It could go under another name most college students would be horrified by but unable to refute: Fascism. Historically, Fascism as a collectivist movement, relied on physical force to propagate and impose its various statist agendas, from Hitler’s racist supremacism, to the Perons’ class warfare against the upper and middle classes.

Sharia is a code of Islamic “law” that defines acceptable behavior and “codifies” do’s and don’ts for the average, gullible, brain-stunted Muslim. By its nature, and because of its purpose, it is totalitarian; it prescribes and governs virtually every action, decision, and choice of an individual.

Like Nazi ideology (and it is no coincidence that Islam is compatible with Nazism [National Socialism], and vice versa), Islam erases the individual, requiring him to live, breathe, and eat for Allah in across-the-board submission. It even prescribes his bodily functions and behavior in the bathroom.
