Britain: A Sanctuary for Deadly Islamic Terrorists

Once again, the U.K. shows itself to be a safe haven for Islamic terrorists.  According to a Feb. 14, 2021 report,

A terrorist who claimed asylum in Britain after he was sentenced to death in Egypt for a failed assassination plot is set to win the right to stay in this country.

Yasser Al-Sirri, 58, first claimed asylum in 1994 but was turned down and has taken the issue to court more than eight times at great cost to British taxpayers.

Al-Sirri, who was also charged in the US with assisting someone involved in the 1993 World Trade Centre bombing, has appeared in several tribunals since.

And last week a tribunal decided he was entitled to remain in the U.K. as a refugee.

Among al-Sirri’s other jihadi bona fides, he was a member of Egypt’s terrorist organization, Islamic Jihad, and it was for his activities with that group—including a failed assassination attempt on the then Egyptian prime minister which instead killed a 12-year-old girl—that he was sentenced to death in absentia. One of the founding members of Egypt’s Islamic Jihad—which eventually merged with al-Qaeda—was Ayman al-Zawahiri, the current leader of al-Qaeda.  Its original mission was to overthrow and supplant the Egyptian government with an Islamic one—basically the same mission that was for a time realized by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.  The “Blind Sheikh” who conspired in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings that killed six, including a pregnant woman, and injured thousands, was also a graduate of Egypt’s Islamic Jihad.

Such is the jihadi background and terrorist affiliations and activities of al-Sirri (at left in the photo above), this man who was just granted “refugee status” in Britain.  Of course, granting asylum and visas to “radical” Muslims is nothing new for the U.K.

For example,  despite having no papers on him—and despite telling the Home Office that “he had been trained as an ISIS soldier”—Ahmed Hassan was still granted asylum two years before he launched a terrorist attack on a London train station that left 30 injured in September 2017.  The Home Office also allowed a foreign Muslim cleric to enter and lecture in London, even though he advocates decapitating, burning, and/or throwing homosexuals from cliffs.  According to another report, “British teenagers are being forced to marry abroad and are raped and impregnated while the Home Office ‘turns a blind eye’ by handing visas to their [mostly Muslim] husbands.”

If the U.K. is that lenient when it comes to handing out refugee status and visas, surely those who are truly persecuted are easily granted asylum.  Not so.  Consider the case of Asia Bibi—a Christian wife and mother of five who spent a decade of her life being abused on death row in Pakistan for challenging the authority of Muhammad; her story perhaps best sheds light on the immigration situation in the U.K.  After she was finally acquitted in November, 2018, Muslims rioted throughout Pakistan; in one march, more than 11,000 Muslims demanded her instant and public hanging.

As Pakistanis make for the majority of the U.K.’s significant Muslim population—Sajid Javid, then head of the Home Office, is himself Pakistani—when they got wind that the U.K. might offer asylum to Asia Bibi, this innocent woman whose life had been ripped apart, they too rioted.   As a result, then Prime Minister Theresa May personally blocked Bibi’s asylum application—“despite U.K. playing host to [Muslim] hijackers, extremists and rapists,” to quote from one headline.  In other words, Britain was openly allowing “asylum policy to be dictated to by a Pakistan mob,” reported the Guardian, “after it was confirmed it urged the Home Office not to grant Asia Bibi political asylum in the U.K.…”

Indeed, while denying Asia Bibi, the Home Office allowed a Pakistani cleric who celebrated the slaughter of a politician simply because he had defended Asia Bibi—a cleric deemed so extreme as to be banned from his native Pakistan—to enter and lecture in U.K. mosques.

Incidentally, and as discussed here, the treatment Asia Bibi received from the U.K. seems to be par for the course when it comes to persecuted Christian asylum seekers and even visitors.

Discussing how “visas were granted [by the Home Office] in July [2016] to two Pakistani Islamic leaders who have called for the killing of Christians accused of blasphemy,” Dr. Martin Parsons, a human rights activist, expressed his frustration at this topsy-turvy situation: “It’s unbelievable that these persecuted Christians who come from the cradle of Christianity are being told there is no room at the inn, when the U.K. is offering a welcome to Islamists who persecute Christians.”

In other words, persecuted Christians need not apply for asylum in the U.K., whereas “radical” Muslims that only hate and seek to sabotage Britain are welcomed with open arms.

Frank Conversation Between A Muslim And A Democrat

Free Republic

MUSLIM: “We did this because our holy texts exhort us to to do it.”

DEMOCRAT: “No you didn’t.”

MUSLIM:”Wait, what? Yes we did…”

DEMOCRAT: “No, this has nothing to do with religion. You guys are just using religion as a front for social and geopolitical reasons.”

MUSLIM: “WHAT!? Did you even read our official statement? We give explicit Quranic justification. This is jihad, a holy crusade against pagans, blasphemers, and disbelievers.”


DEMOCRAT: “No, this is definitely not a Muslim thing. You guys are not true Muslims, and you defame a great religion by saying so.”

MUSLIM: “Huh!? Who are you to tell us we’re not true Muslims!? Islam is literally at the core of everything we do, and we have implemented the truest most literal and honest interpretation of its founding texts. It is our very reason for being.”

DEMOCRAT: “Nope. We created you. We installed a social and economic system that alienates and disenfranchises you, and that’s why you did this. We’re sorry.”

MUSLIM: “What? Why are you apologizing? We just slaughtered you mercilessly in the streets. We targeted unwitting civilians – disenfranchisement doesn’t even enter into it!”

DEMOCRAT: “Easy access to guns is what drives your anger.”

MUSLIM: “It’s not the guns! We will knife you, hang you, burn you, run you over, and bombs are easy to create in our kitchens! We don’t care about the guns! In fact, civilian might actually make it difficult for us!”

DEMOCRAT: “Obviously we need to ban all guns. We need to overturn the Second Amendment.”

MUSLIM: “By Allah, you are a motherless tool! The weapon is not the issue! Our Holy Jihad against you is the only thing that is important!”

DEMOCRAT: “Climate Change is the reason you rage against us. We deserve it.”

MUSLIM: “WHAT??!? What the hell does Climate Change have to do with this???”

DEMOCRAT: “Because of Climate Change, the oceans will rise by one-tenth of one inch, and that makes you furious….”

MUSLIM: (facepalms)

DEMOCRAT: “You see no future for your children because of Climate Change so you strap bombs on them and send them into shopping malls.

MUSLIM: “NO DAMMIT. It has NOTHING to do with Climate Change or Gun Control or ANYTHING like that! It is because we follow the teachings of the Prophet Mohammad, who tells us to put all unbelievers to the sword! We are commanded by Allah to kill you all!”

DEMOCRAT: “This is all caused by the fact we bullied gays and transgenders in our past. If we hadn’t been so mean, and accepted Bruce Jenner for the amazing woman he was all those years, you would not be trying to kill us. Please forgive us.”

MUSLIM: “ARE YOU INSANE??? We kill gays the moment we find them! We hang them by their necks any chance we can! Islam hates homosexuality!”

DEMOCRAT: “Listen, it’s our fault. We resisted resettling you in our country. We should have given you more welfare and food stamps. We don’t blame you for feeling unwelcome and lashing out.”

MUSLIM: “Seriously, stop taking credit for this! We worked really hard to pull this off, and we’re not going to let you take it away from us.”

DEMOCRAT: “No, we nourished your extremism. We accept full blame.”

MUSLIM: “OMG, how many people do we have to kill around here to finally get our message across?””

DEMOCRAT: “Gun control will fix this.”


It Sure Quacks Like Jihad

Are you puzzled by what’s being said about the murderous attack yesterday in San Bernandino by reporters, officials and so-called “experts”?

After all, we know that the perpetrators were two heavily armed and body-armored Muslims who shot to death fourteen innocent civilians and injured many more. A family member described one as “religious.” He reportedly brought the other from Saudi Arabia, a nation whose principal exports are energy products and Islamic supremacism.

Muslim Brotherhood operatives quickly held a press conference to insist that this incident might be – wait for it – “workplace violence” like the Fort Hood massacre, or the result of a mental health disorder. Others assert that it was just violent extremism and the right response is more gun control.

The available evidence suggests it was actually jihad. And remember, it happened in one of the country’s most gun-controlled states.

The Conditioning is Working & the Dectruction of America is at Hand

Freedom Outpost

It’s amazing to me how this administration has any credibility left with the American people. In the America I once lived in, there was a sleeping giant that stood vigilant, jealously guarding our liberties as if they were the most precious of jewels. An administration that has lied and attempted to subvert the Constitution as often as this one, would be called out and humiliated by a press corps that understood its duty in protecting the First Amendment.

Not in this America; the country we live in today is unrecognizable, and besides, that only happens when Republicans lie, cheat and steal. Instead of guarding liberty, the masses have been conditioned, through the same propaganda used by tyrants all throughout the twentieth century, to hate their own culture and discredit the very system that grants them the liberty to do so. The liberal’s attitude towards America and the Constitution is the perfect example of “biting the hand that feeds you.”

U.S. Military Hires Terror-tied Chaplains

Freedom Outpost

If the US military doesn’t know better, then who are we to trust with our defense? Ourselves. Remember that.

There have been over 22,000 deadly Islamic attacks since 9/11 — each one with imprimatur of a Muslim cleric. You would have thought Anwar Awlaki, Pentagon darling and leading jihad cleric, might have taught the Department of Defense a thing or two.

Family Security Matters

Who are the extremists? That’s the only question I’m left with after   watching last week’s capitulation of establishment Republican “leaders”  to  Democrats who want to spend another trillion dollars we don’t have.  Yeah, those  quotes mean I don’t actually consider McConnell, Cornyn,  Boehner or Cantor to  be leaders. They’re surrender monkeys.

On Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL) web  site

Vitriol flowed thickly. The president, other Democrats and their media   allies scared Republican surrender monkeys much the way Putin, Assad and  the  Iranian mullahs scared them. President Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy  Pelosi and  other Democrats called Republicans arsonists, domestic  abusers, hostage-takers,  the  Ku Klux Klan,  even terrorists – because how else should we interpret White  House  advisor Dan Pfeiffer’s remarks about negotiating with Republicans: “What   we’re not for is negotiating with people with a bomb strapped to their  chest,”  he  said.  I mean, heck, the White House doesn’t even call Major Nidal Hasan a   terrorist and he shot 42 Americans, killing thirteen. They don’t call  the  Muslim Brotherhood terrorists even when they kill Christians and  burn down  their churches.

Barack Obama’s Lack of Leadership Has Allowed the Spread of Evil

Freedom Outpost

Does the extinguished candle care about the darkness?  Ask the huddled  masses who are yearning to be free.  America was once thought of as a  light  unto nations.  Obama has single-handedly extinguished that light. 

I saw it all coming.  In my 2010 book The  Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America, I  noted that one student who was interviewed after an Obama town hall meeting  during his first presidential trip to Europe in 2009 said happily: “He sounds  just like a European.”  That is, not like an American president who loves  his country.  And he doesn’t: asked during that visit to Europe about  American exceptionalism, Obama answered: “I believe in American exceptionalism,  just as I suspect the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks  believe in Greek exceptionalism.”

In other words, he didn’t believe in American exceptionalism at all.  In  a seminal moment for modern historians and active political observers like  myself, a snapshot came across the newswires in May 2008, showing candidate  Obama crossing an airplane tarmac, mid-gait, and holding Fareed Zakaria’s  American epitaph, The Post-American World.  In the photo,  Obama is holding his place in the book with his finger, as if he didn’t dare  put  it down and wanted to dive back into it as soon as he could.

The vicious Zakaria describes his book this way: “This is not a book about  the decline of America, but rather about the rise of everyone else.”  In  it, he details the era he hopes we are entering now — a world in which the  United States would “no longer dominate the global economy, orchestrate  geopolitics, or overwhelm cultures.”  He asserts that the “rise of the  rest” is the “great story of our time, and one that will reshape the world.    The tallest buildings, biggest dams, largest-selling movies, and  most  advanced cell phones are all being built outside the United States.   This  economic growth is producing political confidence, national pride,  and  potentially international problems.”


Obama seems bound and determined to drive America over a cliff and make  Zakaria’s vision of the future a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Obama went to  work from his first day in office to make Zakaria’s wishful thinking about  America’s decline a reality.  As the most powerful man in the world, he  would level the playing field, even if it meant cutting America off at the  knees.  Good and evil would be made equivalent, with evil sanctioned by  the  world’s only remaining superpower.  He turned against our allies  (particularly Israel) and showed them that America could not be relied on.    He taxed us into poverty and stirred up racial strife to make us all less  safe.  He has enabled Russia to re-emerge as a world power, and the  Islamic  jihadists are bolder than ever.

Obama vowed to make America just another nation — unexceptional — and he  has.  It’s not that other nations have risen.  They haven’t.    It’s that Obama has dismantled American hegemony and diminished our  standing in the world.

And so, during the Muslim massacre at a Nairobi mall, whom did Kenyan  officials call for help?  They called Israel.  Obama is Kenyan, with  close relatives in the country.  It is his native land, the country where  his father was born.  So you might think he would have sent help, but his  father (and stepfather) were Muslim; perhaps that is why he always comes  down on the side of the jihad.


Where is the media coverage?  This is Obama’s native land — where is  his condemnation of the vicious sharia?  His silence is sanction and  support.

And in general, the U.S. is glaringly absent in this worldwide fight for  freedom against Islamic jihad killers.  Here is where America should be  leading from the front, or the side, but at least from somewhere.  I am  ashamed for my country.

Kenya has been a beacon for democracy in Africa.  But Africa has come  under the boot of Islam under a post-American U.S. president who is aiding and  abetting the global jihad.  Obama aided Islamic supremacists in Egypt,  Libya, Tunisia, and Algeria.  And Islamic supremacists have been waging a  vicious jihad in Mali, Nigeria, Sudan, Ethiopia, Tanzania…the whole  continent.   This is the horror of Islamic supremacism.

Egypt, in a fierce rebuke of Obama and his patronage of  the Muslim Brotherhood, on Monday banned  the Brotherhood.  Here in America, the Muslim Brotherhood  should be designated a terrorist organization like Hamas (an MB group), along  with its proxies in the U.S. such as CAIR, ISNA, MSA, and MAS.  Despite  Egypt’s massive rejection of Islamic supremacism, and despite the recent rash  of Muslim on non-Muslim attacks, the jihad-aligned media is  digging in and whitewashing Islam and jihad, while doing everything they can to  make Obama look good.

But despite their best efforts, that task is getting harder and harder.    And the absence of America acting in the defense of freedom across the  world is proof that Ayn Rand was right when she said that “the spread of evil  is  the symptom of a vacuum.  Whenever evil wins, it is only by default: by  the  moral failure of those who evade the fact that there can be no compromise  on  basic principles.”

And the Obama presidency is an epic moral failure.

Egypt has the guts to do it—Will America before it is too late?


It is official now.  The Muslim Brotherhood has been outlawed and all its assets confiscated according to the AP.  Related funding and Muslim Brotherhood social groups are also being shut down.  This means throughout Egypt the military supported interim government is taking control of the Muslim Brotherhood’s entire money supply and buildings. They are destroying anything that keeps them going—period!

Barack Obama – The Bad, The Really Bad & The Ugly

Who or What is Barack Obama?

As you may already know, I contend that we under attack not just by evil but  by FIVE  EVILS.  These are (1) Communism, (2) Islamism, (3) New World Order (NWO)  Corruption, (4) Crime, and (5) Hedonism.  These are savageries which we must  eradicate if we are to have any peace.
