Family Security Matters
Jihadist attacks in San Bernardino and Paris have Americans on edge. Yet part of the Obama White House’s response to the attacks has been to invite Islamist groups that routinely demonize the FBI and other law-enforcement agencies to the White House to discuss a religious discrimination. “If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away,” President Obama said in his speech following the San Bernardino attack.
But partnering with such organizations sends the wrong message to the American people, said Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy (AFID).
“I think it says a lot when the president uses those organizations that have an ACLU-type mentality. They should have a seat at the table. That’s fine,” Jasser said. “But not to include groups, which have completely different focuses about counter-radicalization, counter-Islamism creates this monolithic megaphone for demonization of our government and demonization of America that ends up radicalizing our community.”

President Obama’s legacy is one of indifference to our security. To cite a few examples: He’s kept the borders open and, with his executive amnesty, encouraged enemies of this country – and countless other aliens – to come in.
He’s bringing many thousands of Syrian migrants here, even though they can’t be vetted for jihadist tendencies. He’s letting hardened drug criminals out of our jails, despite evidence that roughly half will perpetrate more crimes.
Now, he’s poised to bring jihadists from Guantanamo Bay to prisons, courts and communities in this country. The prisons will become still greater recruiting grounds for Islamic supremacists – some of whom may be sprung by U.S. judges while other terrorists target unwilling host communities.
At what point will Americans say enough of this President’s legacy-building at the expense of public safety? After more of us needlessly die? Or now?
The U.S. intelligence community’s Worldwide Threat Assessment removed Iran and its proxy Hezbollah from the list of terror threats to the United States.
The annual assessment of the intelligence community, which is released by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, led by General James Clapper, backed away from years of precedent when the decision was made to remove Iran and Hezbollah from the terrorism threats list, The Times of Israel reports.
Outside of the politically correct verbiage and categorization issues (such as replacing the term “jihadist” with “violent extremist”), the report reveals that the intelligence community believes Tehran presents a persistent, significant threat to the United States.
The report reveals that Iran presents a significant threat to the United States: “The Islamic Republic of Iran is an ongoing threat to US national interests because of its support to the Assad regime in Syria, promulgation of anti-Israeli policies, development of advanced military capabilities, and pursuit of its nuclear program.”
With regard to Iran’s WMD (Weapons of Mass Destruction) program, the report states: “We continue to assess that Iran’s overarching strategic goals of enhancing its security, prestige and regional influence have led it to pursue capabilities to meet its civilian goals and give it the ability to build missile-deliverable nuclear weapons.”

In the latest of many fringe benefits extended to the world’s most dangerous terrorists the Obama administration is allowing Guantanamo Bay prisoners—including a senior Al Qaeda operative—to speak with family via video chats similar to Skype.
The captives are “high-value” detainees locked up in a special top-security wing of the military compound at the U.S. Naval base in southeast Cuba. Two of the terrorists recently had video conferences with family for the first time since their incarceration, according to a Spanish news agency that identifies them as Abu Faraj al Libi and Abd al Rahim al Nashiri. Al Libi was the former No. 3 Al Qaeda leader, captured in 2005. His Department of Defense file says he’s a high risk prisoner of high intelligence value who served as the operational chief of Al Qaeda and had long term associations with Osama bin Laden.
Unlike Israelis who face the threat of Hamas rocket attacks from Gaza every day, Americans like to think that they are safe from radical Islamic terrorists at home. But that safety may be an illusion.
The barbarians of the Islamic State have already threatened to conquer America and raise the Islamic flag over the White House. Benjamin Netanyahu has warned America that radical Islamic terrorists have the United States in their sights, and Texas Governor Rick Perry has put the nation on notice that radical Islamists may already have crossed into the country illegally over the nation’s porous southern border.
But these warnings overlook a potentially enormous threat to Americans–attacks by radical Islamic terrorists who are also American citizens, like the mass murders allegedly committed by Ali Muhammad Brown that the American media has completely ignored.
Sajeel Sahid ran a camp where he taught bomb-making and combat skills.
Now he’s opened a primary school in Great Britain.

Sajeel Sahid taught Mohammad Siddique Khan at one of his camps in Pakistan.
The Daily Mail reported:
A terror suspect who trained the ringleader of the 7/7 terrorist bombings in London has been allowed to set up an Islamic primary school, teaching children as young as three, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
As a member of a banned extremist group, Sajeel Shahid, 38, called for violence against British troops and ran a training camp in Pakistan where known terrorists learned how to make bombs and fire rocket- propelled grenades.
One of his ‘graduates’ was Mohammed Siddique Khan, who led the gang of four suicide bombers on the deadliest terrorist attack ever committed in Britain, killing 52 people on the London Underground and a bus on July 7, 2005.
Shahid also allegedly trained four convicted terrorists who tried to blow up the Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent and London’s Ministry of Sound nightclub in a foiled plot.
The jihadist – who was raised in Britain but spent years in Pakistan after the 9/11 attacks – was detained for three months in 2005 by the Pakistani security forces over his suspected links to Al Qaeda.
Mohammad Sidique Khan was the father of a young daughter and a primary school teacher. He blew himself up in London.
Sidique Khan worked for the government of Great Britain.
His wife was also arrested on terror charges in 2007.
