What was that again about Al-Qaeda on the run?

American Thinker

From the US Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia comes an Emergency Message for US citizens which transmits a world wide caution on continuing threats from terrorist groups.  The entire document gives the lie to Obama’s declaration from a few years ago that Al-Qaida is in full retreat.  Some excerpts:

Kidnappings and hostage events involving U.S. citizens have become increasingly prevalent (emphasis added) as al Qa`ida and its affiliates have increased attempts to finance their operations through kidnapping for ransom operations. Al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and al-Qa’ida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) are particularly effective with kidnapping for ransom and are using ransom money to fund the range of their activities.

It also seems that since the Obama declaration of victory, al-Qaida has not suffered one iota and is capable of attacks worldwide using its standard terror tactics:

Information also suggests that al-Qa’ida and its affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics including suicide operations, assassinations, kidnappings, hijackings, and bombings.

Read the whole thing since it gives an excellent summation of terrorist operations around the globe.  What is particularly damning is the situation in the Philippines.  Under Bush ’43, US Special Forces and their Philippine counterparts rendered Abu Sayyaf virtually impotent by a series of operations which eliminated the group’s leaders and several of their successors.  Under Obama, Abu Sayyaf and other Islamic groups have had a resurgence in Mindanao and the Sulu Archipelago:

In September 2013, elements of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) occupied portions of the city of Zamboanga and engaged in a lengthy battle with security forces which reduced large parts of the city to rubble.  [snip]  On November 15, 2013, gunmen, linked to the Abu Sayyaf Group, raided a resort on Pom Pom Island off the eastern coast of Sabah, killing a tourist from Taiwan and taking his wife hostage.

I await the national security correspondents of the MSM for their analysis of this warning, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Islam Is What Happens When Civilization Loses

Family Security Matters

Saudi Arabia and Qatar aren’t talking to each other. Syria and Turkey are shooting at each other. Not only are the Shiites and Sunnis killing each other in Syria, but the Sunni groups have been killing each other for some time now. There are even two or three Al Qaedas fighting each other over which of them is the real Al Qaeda while, occasionally, denying that they are the real Al Qaeda.

There’s something about Syria that splits down everything and everyone. Even Hamas had to split between its political and military wings when choosing between Iran’s weapons and Qatar’s money. Doing the logical thing, the military wing took the weapons and the political wing took the money so that the military wing of Hamas supported Assad and its political wing supported the Sunni opposition.

It’s not however money and weapons that splits Muslims over Syria. Money and weapons are only the symbols. What they represent is Islam. And what Islam represents is the intersection between identity and power.

In the Latest Issue of Taliban Magazine

Pamela Geller

Here are the latest offerings from Obama’s “peace” partners (scroll). Despite their continuing war against America and their vicious, bloody campaign to impose sharia, Obama relentlessly stalks them for “peace,” handing over money, power, and mindless accommodation in exchange for humiliation, murder and mayhem.

Obama gave them legitimacy, and they repay every day him in blood. President Karzai confirmed that the Obama Administration actually told him that the Taliban, which provided al Qaeda its base of support for September 11, was not an enemy of the U.S. He said:

Last year, during my visit to Washington, in a very important briefing a day before I met U.S. President [Barack Obama], his national security adviser Tom Donilon, and senior White House officials, generals, and intelligence officials, the national security adviser met with me. He told me: “The Taliban are not our enemies and we don’t want to fight them.”

Muslim Brotherhood Launches US Political Network to Promote Sharia Law

Gateway Pundit

The radical Muslim Brotherhood has built up a political network that seeks to turn Muslims into a voting bloc. The group is hoping to institutionalize favorable policies like Shariah law in the US.

Investor’s Business Daily reported:

With an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamist voting bloc.

‘Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.

“We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.”

USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Shariah law.

This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a “civilization jihad” against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and “destroying (it) from within.”

The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader’s home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11.

 

Islamist Who Trained 7-7 Tube Bomber Opens Primary School in Britain

Gateway Pundit

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.

IRS Al Qaeda Surprise

Is the Obama administration giving Al Qaeda terrorists free reign in the USA?

Muslims Sue Empire State Building

Moonbattery

In the days following 9/11, I walked past the Empire State Building each day on the way to work. Having watched the World Trade Center collapse, each time a saw King Kong’s former perch I felt enormously relieved that it was still there, but terrified that it wouldn’t be for long. Years passed and to my surprise, Muslims never brought it down. It became a symbol of the New York — and the America — that still survived despite the rise of Islam.

Before long the dhimmis in charge started lighting up the Empire State Building with green lights to celebrate Islamic holidays. Now we read this:

A Muslim family from Long Island slapped the owners of the Empire State Building Tuesday with a scathing $5 million lawsuit that claims they were booted from the building’s observation deck for praying.

Fahad and Amina Tirmizi of Farmingville said their civil rights were violated when they were “assaulted, battered and forcibly removed” from the famed observatory last July.

Assaulted. Battered. Sure they were.

The observation deck on the Empire State Building offers a great view of where the World Trade Center used to rise into the sky. The Tirmizi soft jihadists chose that place to go into their Islamic prayer routine while dressed in traditional Muslim attire.

The psychological effect on tourists was predictable and no doubt intended.

Since they were not flung toward the nearest empty spot on the pavement below, I would say the Tirmizis were treated better than they deserved.

Screeches the termite serving as their lawyer:

“To most, the Empire State Building is one of the great landmarks of this city, but for my client and his family, it is a building of ignorance and injustice.”

If blacks can collect over $100 million for being too dumb to pass the FDNY entrance exam, Muslims should have no problem collecting $5 million for not being allowed to intimidate tourists at the Empire State Building.

At last I understand why Muslims never hijacked another plane to take the building out. Now they let moonbattery do their work. It destroys their infidel enemies at a deeper level.

Two North Carolina Muslim Converts Arrested on Terrorism Charges

Free Republic

Two North Carolina Muslim converts were arrested on terrorism charges this week:

These two were proselytized, then recruited to Jihad. They didn’t brew up this scheme on their own. This is so similar to what happened to Carlos Bledsoe in Tennessee before he traveled to Yemen and came back to wage Jihad in Nashville and Little Rock.

There are active Jihadi recruiting operations going on in the US…

Virginia Legislature Passes Resolution Honoring Radical Mosque Tied To 9/11 Hijackers…

This is the same mosque where top al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaki once preached.

Via Virginia.gov:

HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION NO. 484

Commending the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center.

WHEREAS, the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center, a nonprofit organization in Falls Church, celebrated 30 years of serving and uplifting members of the Northern Virginia Muslim community and conducting outreach to the region in 2013; and

WHEREAS, founded in 1983, the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center traces its roots to a house in Falls Church that was chosen for its proximity to the Washington, D.C., metro area and its thriving Muslim community; construction on the current facility began in 1986 and it opened in 1991; and

WHEREAS, the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center works to strengthen the Muslim faith in the region through seminars, sermons, lectures, social activities, and clear operational hours for the observance of daily prayer; and

WHEREAS, encouraging the members of the Muslim community to become productive members of society, the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center promotes cooperation, tolerance, and mutual understanding among different faiths; and

WHEREAS, the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center conducts outreach in the community, offering educational classes and making charitable donations to those in need; and

WHEREAS, the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center is affiliated with the Muslim American Society, a national religious, educational, cultural, and charitable organization; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED by the House of Delegates, the Senate concurring, That the General Assembly hereby commend the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center on the occasion of its 30th anniversary; and, be it

RESOLVED FURTHER, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates prepare a copy of this resolution for presentation to the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center as an expression of the General Assembly’s admiration for the center’s commitment to serving the Northern Virginia Muslim community and peoples of all faiths.

Via IPT’s report on the Dar al-Hijrah Mosque:

The Department of Treasury’s Enforcement Communications System (TECS) records note that Dar al-Hijrah “is a mosque operating as a front for Hamas operatives in U.S.,” “is associated with Islamic extremists,” “has been under numerous investigations for financing and proving aid and comfort to bad orgs and members,” has “been linked to numerous individuals linked to terrorism financing,” and “has also been associated with encouraging fraudulent marriages.”

An Imam at this mosque in mid-2001, Anwar al-Awlaki (also mentioned in Rabat Mosque), is considered an important spiritual advisor for two 9/11 hijackers, Khalid al-Mihdhar and Nawaf Al-Hazmi. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said the following of Awlaki on CBS’ Face the Nation on May 23, 2010:

“I think Mister Awlaki is – despite telling the world he’s a cleric, you see on videotape that he supports al Qaeda’s agenda of murder and violence. In fact, in recent videotapes, he said he’s a member of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, who has an agenda just like al Qaeda to strike targets in Yemen, throughout the world, including here in the United States.” [...]

Extremist Rhetoric

In addition to the legal cases involving these Dar al-Hijrah leaders, extremist rhetoric has peppered the mosque’s sermons and khutbahs. In a speech given by Imam Shakir El-Sayed at Dar al-Hijrah on January 9, 2009, Imam Shakir condoned the use of violence in a variety of unfavorable situations for Muslims:

“Islam does not accept peace when its communities are humiliated, when it is exploited, when it is manipulated, when our rights are taken away, when our communities are being killed or attached, the blood is being shed, then this is not time to talk about peace. It will only be time to fight back.”

Imam Shakir specified in his message that the conflict brewing in Palestine is included in the conditions that permit violence saying that, “in Palestine, in Gaza there is a war going on, there is no allowance for a Muslim in that region or in that area to sit still or call for anything other than carrying the arms..”

Muslim Brotherhood-Tied Activist to Host Fundraiser for Democrat Gerry Connolly

Free Republic

A Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated activist whose organization recently came under fire for holding an anti-Semitic rally in support of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi will head a fundraiser for Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly (Va.).

U.S.-based Muslim Brotherhood allies Akram Elzend and Sameh Elhennawy will co-host a fundraiser for Connolly later this month at the Fairfax residence of Mohamed Mohamed, according to a copy of the invitation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Attendees of the March 22 fundraiser are asked to donate between $150 and $400 in order to attend the event, where supporters will have a chance to “express appreciation and have direct conversation with” Connolly, according to the invitation.

A form attached to the invitation asks donors to include their personal information and contains a message that the materials were “paid for and authorized by Connolly for Congress.”

The event has attracted the attention of some U.S.-based analysts who track the Muslim Brotherhood, particularly due to a pro-Morsi rally several weeks ago in New York City that featured anti-Semitic displays and was organized by a group Elzend cofounded.
