The Justice Department has enough incriminating evidence to file terrorism charges against the Council on American-Islamic Relations and its founders but has chosen not to indict the Washington-based group and its leaders at this time, a veteran FBI agent reveals in a shocking new book.
“There is enough evidence to indict CAIR, but the government chose not to do so at this time,” said former FBI official John Guandolo, author of “Raising a Jihadi Generation: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America.”
He suggests the government balked at throwing the book at CAIR for political reasons.
CAIR has cultivated a number of political supporters, mainly among leading Democrats in Washington – including senior White House officials. Secret Service entry logs show CAIR officials have visited the White House several times during the Obama administration.
Despite its designation as an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator in 2007, the Muslim pressure group in recent years has successfully lobbied for changes in federal policies dealing with the war on terror. For example, CAIR took credit for helping persuade Attorney General Eric Holder to prohibit religious profiling in terror cases, a decision his department is expected to announce formally soon. It also played a key role in the Pentagon’s recent decision to change long-standing uniform rules to allow military personnel to wear Islamic beards and head coverings.
Moreover, a controversial new rule issued earlier this month by the departments of State and Homeland Security to relax U.S. immigration for Palestinian and other foreign “refugees” who have provided “limited” material support to terrorists also dovetails with CAIR lobbying.
Under the Bush administration, the Justice Department implicated CAIR in a criminal conspiracy to raise money for Hamas, a U.S.-designated terrorist group.
CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad, aka Omar Yehya, was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007-2008 Holy Land Foundation case. He and CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad remain under FBI investigation, senior FBI officials have confirmed in letters to Congress. Until their ties to Hamas are resolved, the FBI says it will not formally recognize CAIR as a Muslim outreach partner or meet with CAIR officials. The FBI has effectively banned CAIR pending the outcome of the probe.
Starting in the fall of 2008, Guandolo said, “the FBI cut off all ties with CAIR because of their ties to Hamas.”
He explains that CAIR was created in 1994 by the U.S. branch of Hamas, known as the “Palestine Committee,” to function as the “political arm” of the Palestinian terrorist group. A year before founding the front group, Ahmad and Awad had attended a secret meeting with “senior leaders of Hamas” at a Philadelphia hotel that was bugged by the FBI. An internal FBI memo written by the former head of the FBI’s counterterrorism division describes “all attendees” of the meeting – including Ahmad and Awad – as “Hamas members,” Guandolo points out.
“CAIR was the fourth organization created by Hamas to recruit jihadis, raise money and gain media favor for Hamas in America,” Guandolo said, adding that phone books, organizational charts, secret manifestos written in Arabic and other documents the FBI has seized indicate Awad and Ahmad were in leadership positions in the U.S. Palestine Committee prior to the creation of CAIR.
“CAIR is Hamas,” Guandolo flatly states.
Since 9/11, several CAIR officials – including senior officials working in the group’s national office located within blocks of the U.S. Capitol – have been convicted or deported on terrorism-related charges.
CAIR denies any ties to terrorism and slams Guandolo as an “Islamophobe” who seeks to deny constitutional rights for Muslim-Americans.
In a headline posted on the home page of its website, CAIR maintains that Guandolo once said “mosques have no right to exist,” but that claim disappears when visitors click on the headline and go to the full statement. CAIR never sources or supports the claim.
Guandolo says it’s a typical “smear tactic” of CAIR.
A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy as well as the U.S. Army Ranger School, Guandolo joined the FBI in 1996 after resigning his commission in the Marine Corps, where he served as a commander in Iraq and Bosnia.
After the 9/11 attacks, Guandolo was assigned to the counter-terrorism division of the FBI’s Washington field office where he investigated U.S. front groups for the radical Muslim Brotherhood and its Palestinian branch, Hamas. In 2006, Guandolo developed the FBI’s first counter-terrorism training program focusing on the global Islamic jihad movement. He was designated a “subject matter expert” by FBI headquarters.
In 2007, Guandolo was presented the “Defender of the Homeland” award by U.S. Sens. Joseph Lieberman and John Kyl. Before resigning from the FBI in December 2008, Guandolo twice received the United States Attorneys Award for Investigative Excellence. He served on the bureau’s SWAT team as well as its surveillance unit.
He now works as a counter-terrorism and security consultant for law enforcement, the intelligence community and the military. He also teaches at the Joint Forces Staff College and the U.S. Army War College.
In 2011, Guandolo delivered a three-day seminar on counter-terrorism to members of the FBI’s National Joint Terrorism Task Force and several other federal agencies at Marine headquarters in Virginia.

CULPEPER, Va. – The Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office is hosting a counterterrorism program conducted by a controversial formerFBI agent – and catching flak for it.
John Guandolo, the presenter, was branded a ”notorious anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist” by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
CAIR urged Culpeper Sheriff Scott Jenkins to disinvite Guandolo and distance his department from the “Jihadi Networks in America”program, which is billed as “Advanced Counterterrorism Training.”
Sheriff Jenkins told Watchdog.org that 20 staffers from his office will attend the seminar Feb. 25-27 at the Culpeper campus of Germanna Community College.
Tickets are $225 per person. Because his department is hosting the event, Jenkins said staffers would “receive a discounted rate.” He did not specify the savings.
As for Guandolo, Jenkins said “his expenses are his responsibility.”

Gearing his Culpeper program to “law enforcement, U.S. military and national security pros,” Guandolo told Watchdog that the conference is closed to the media and general public. He said he will conduct a public program in Fairfax in March.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a liberal activist organization that monitors so-called “hate groups,” has its sights on Guandolo.
“It’s hard to believe that the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office would knowingly associate itself with such a disreputable character,” said the SPLC’s Josh Glasstetter.
Guandolo, who authored the book, “Raising a Jihadi Generation,” describes himself as a “counterterrorism expert.”
But Corey Saylor, director of Washington, D.C.-based CAIR’s Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia, counters:
“Mr. Guandolo has a lengthy record of anti-Muslim extremism and unprofessional behavior. His views on Islam are the equivalent of historical anti-Catholic and anti-Semitic falsehoods. Guandolo offers only his own prejudiced and inaccurate conspiratorial views, not solid counterterrorism training.”
Glasstetter alleged that Guandolo “regularly attacks the U.S. government, claims that the director of the Central Intelligence Agency is a secret Muslim agent for the Saudi government and says that American Muslims ‘do not have a First Amendment right to do anything.’”
Former FBI Agent: US Infiltrated at Highest Levels
Islamic Center of Manteca, California
by, News Fix Now
MANTECA, CA – Two eggs, some hash browns and a side of bacon spells one word — DELICIOUS! But one breakfast item is spelling hate for a California mosque.
Dr. Mohammad Elfarra says it all started after he came out of a daily prayer service and saw the front sign and parking lot had been spray painted with the words ‘F-word Islam.’ The vandals also left strips of bacon.
“Bacon, lard or anything from the pig is prohibited by the Bible and Koran,” said Elfarra.
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Last year, vandals spray painted another hateful message on the sign. But members of the mosque say they’re not concerned about catching and punishing the vandals. They’re more worried that the hateful messages could turn into something far more dangerous.
The council on American-Islamic relations is asking the FBI to investigate.

Although this piece deals only with cases and laws in the UK, it will no doubt have almost exact parallels in the United States. The names of the laws will of course be different and not entirely identical in content.
Nonetheless, the political and legal ramifications will be much the same on both sides of The Pond.
Introduction: Discrimination Against Muslims?
It’s crystal clear that Muslims — or at least their leaders, lawyers and activists — believed that the Race Relations Act of 1976 (now replaced by the Equality Act 2010) was clearly not enough for them. As the Muslim lawyer and writer (for The Islamic Foundation) Nadeem Malik puts it (in the book British Muslims Between Assimilation and Segregation):
“In discrimination terms, the only tangible avenue available to Muslims historically has been to pursue an action under the Race Relations Act 1976.”
Similarly, Muslims had problems with the Public Order Act of 1986 and the Crimes and Disorder Act of 1998.
Nadeem Malik also argues that English law “could have extended the Public Order Act 1986 to include an offence of incitement to religious hatred.” In addition, the Crimes and Disorder Act 1998 should have included “religiously aggravated offences.”
Malik is not even happy with what he refers to as “discourses on ‘equality.’” More specifically, they are not “religion [Islam] friendly.” Or, in other words, the Commission for Racial Equality does not “provide assistance to those suffering from discrimination on religious grounds.”
So Muslims feel discriminated against not only by those omnipresent ‘Islamophobes’; but also by the law itself.
You’ll find Muslims generally aren’t talking about discrimination in any obvious or real senses: such as when a employer refuses to employ a person simply because he’s a Muslim; or when an employer makes Muslims sit in a different part of the communal dining room. Why do I think that? Because laws already exist to deal with such acts of discrimination. That is, if an employer sacked someone simply for being a Muslim (or if he was shown to be refusing work to Muslims), he would be prosecuted or fined within a blink of an eye.
In actual fact, what we are talking about here is Muslims demanding that they be allowed to work according to the dictates of sharia law (i.e., at their places of employment). In terms of actual example, we are talking about:
i) The “discrimination” that is not allowing Muslim schoolteachers the “right” to take every Friday afternoon off in order to pray.
ii) Muslim nurses – or even surgeons — being allowed to wear the hijab and even the niqab in the surgery.
iii) The right of Muslims working on the tills of supermarkets to refuse to serve customers who are buying alcohol, pork products and Bible-related goods.
iv) The right of Muslims to have prayer-rooms installed in all workplaces.
v) And Premier League footballers refusing to wear the logos of companies which aren’t sharia-friendly/’compliant.’
In other words, none of this has anything at all to do with either racism in the workplace or people being sacked simply because they are Muslims. This is about the ostensible discrimination that is not allowing sharia law to be upheld within the workplace. It is, therefore, effectively about the supposed right of Muslims to Islamize the working environment.
That prime contention is the fact that Sikhs and Jews, legally speaking, are deemed to constitute racial groups, whereas Muslims aren’t.
The Commission on British Muslims and Islamophobia (set up in 1997) saw the “anomaly” this way:
“It has been established through case law that members of two world faiths, Judaism and Sikhism, are fully protected under the Race Relations Act 1976, since they are considered to belong to distinct ethnic groups.”
This is clearly problematic for Muslims. Thus the Commission immediately went on to say that that it “is a serious anomaly that no such protection exists for members of other faiths.” Despite that, this is the conundrum that Muslims find themselves in: on the one hand Muslims continuously stress the “universal nature of Islam” and the fact that “Muslims come from all races.” (Or, as that Commission put it, “Muslims (as also Christians) would emphatically not wish to be seen as belonging to a single ethnic group.”) But on the other hand, being seen as a single race will most certainly confer upon Muslims legal — and therefore social and political — advantages.
Some of these anomalies are precisely that — anomalies. For example, one tribunal, according to Malik, claimed that:
“Sikhs are geographically defined by originating from a particular place in India and that they are bound by their culture as well as their religion.”
So if that’s true about Sikhs, then, according to Malik, it’s also true about Mirpuris from Kashmir. That is, the Mirpuris “have a particular language, geographic heritage, ancestral links, common culture and religious values.” It’s also true “with regard to Pushtuns [Pashtuns?] from Pakistan.” Yet, unlike Sikhs, “it has been found that Mirpuris from Kashmir are not a racial group.”
The illogicality of the argument here — especially from a lawyer – is blatant. Only a tiny a minority of Muslims come from Kashmir or the Pashtun-inhabited regions of Pakistan. Sikhs, on the whole, can trace their heritage to specific parts of India. There will of course be a tiny number of Sikhs who won’t be able to do so. Nonetheless, compared to the hundreds of millions of Muslims who don’t come from Kashmir or the Pashtun-inhabited regions of Pakistan, the comparison completely breaks down — and Nadeem Malik must know that. The only argument Malik can uphold is that Mirpuris and Pashtuns constitute racial/ethnic groups and that they also happen to be Muslims. What has that to do with the legal status of Muslims (as Muslims) in the UK?
The obvious answer to all this is to fully separate racial/ethnic groups from religious groups. Nonetheless, it seems that many Muslims — including Malik himself — aren’t happy with that conclusion. Why? Because, as I said, Muslims would benefit enormously from being seen as a single racial group.
Of course this racialization of Muslims is clearly ridiculous. Muslims themselves – when coming at this issue from the perspective of “Islamic universalism” — agree. Indeed the ridiculous nature of this racialization of Muslims is noted by Malik himself — if only indirectly. He cites a finding of the House of Lords, which:
“stated that a person could fall into a particular racial group by birth or by adopting and following the customs of the group.”
Yes; you read that correctly! If a white person were to become a Sikh, he would be deemed — by the Lords and the law generally — to have suddenly fallen under another racial group. And it seems that Muslims also want this to apply to white — or yellow — Muslims.
A Case Study
Malik cites various concrete legal cases which demonstrate this attempt to racialize Muslims and even Islam itself. For example, he cites the case of J H Walker v. Hussain and others in which seventeen Muslim workers were dismissed for attending what Malik calls “Eid Prayers.” Malik doesn’t give many details other than to tell us the racial origin of the sacked workers. He also tells us that they were sacked “on religious grounds.” However, because spending your time praying to Allah (when you should have been working) will not sound too dandy to either employers or to non-Muslims, this mass sacking was given a racial — or indeed racist — veneer. That is, the Tribunal:
“considered that the effect would be to discriminate against most people from the Indian sub-continent and, therefore, would constitute indirect discrimination on racial grounds.”
In other words, these Muslims weren’t sacked because of their skin color or their genetic makeup. They were sacked because they were praying during working hours.
Malik himself sees the problem of racialising this particular case. For example, “if the seventeen Muslims had been white Muslims they would have had no remedy.” Too right! Hence the required racialization of Muslims and therefore the localization of an otherwise supposedly “universal religion.” That is, in order to be given the privilege of praying during working hours (or, in other cases, of having halal produce, Muslim prayer areas, the separation of the sexes, a non-alcohol environment, etc.), these Muslims had to be viewed in strictly racial terms — as a single ethnic group from the “Indian sub-continent.” And that is precisely why they won the case.
Despite that reasonable conclusion, Malik wasn’t happy with such a verdict. Quite clearly to most Muslims, every demand from fellow Muslims (as Muslims) should be met; whether by schools, factories, McDonald’s, universities, Premier League football teams and indeed by every workplace in which Muslims work.

The common thread that binds the entire document together is the OIC’s repeated insistence that the main culprit responsible for “the institutionalization of Islamophobia” in Western countries is freedom of speech.
“The Istanbul Process started with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton…. We need to build on it.” — OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Isanoglu
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, an influential bloc of 57 Muslim countries, has released the latest edition of its annual “Islamophobia” report.
But the primary objective of the OIC—headquartered in Saudi Arabia and funded by dozens of Muslim countries that systematically persecute Christians and Jews—has long been to pressure Western countries into passing laws that would ban “negative stereotyping of Islam.”
In this context, the OIC’s annual Islamophobia report—an integral part of a sustained effort to prove the existence of a “culture of intolerance of Islam and Muslims” in the West—is in essence a lobbying tool to pressure Western governments to outlaw all forms of “Islamophobia,” a nebulous concept invented by the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1990s.
Islamophobia: A Threat to Worldwide Free-Speech
The OIC report comprises five main chapters and several annexes aimed at documenting “incidents of slandering and demeaning Muslims and their sacred symbols including attacks on mosques, verbal abuses and physical attacks against adherents of Islam, mainly due to their cultural traits.”
But the common thread that binds the entire document together is the OIC’s repeated insistence that the main culprit responsible for “the institutionalization of Islamophobia” in Western countries is freedom of speech, which the OIC claims has “contributed enormously to snowball Islamophobia and manipulate the mindset of ordinary Western people to develop a ‘phobia’ of Islam and Muslims.”
According to the OIC, freedom of expression is shielding “the perpetrators of Islamophobia, who seek to propagate irrational fear and intolerance of Islam, [who] have time and again aroused unwarranted tension, suspicion and unrest in societies by slandering the Islamic faith through gross distortions and misrepresentations and by encroaching on and denigrating the religious sentiments of Muslims.”
Chapter 1 of the report deals with “Islamophobia, Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims,” and purports to reveal the “unabated rise of Islamophobia in Western countries, thereby exacerbating tensions at all levels and constituting additional obstacles to the diversity and multicultural fabrics of the societies.”
According to the OIC, freedom of speech is to blame for the “perpetuation of Islamophobia,” which:
“…has become increasingly widespread, which, in turn, has caused an increase in the actual number of hate crimes committed against Muslims. These crimes range from the usual verbal abuse and discrimination, particularly in the fields of education and employment, to other acts of violence and vandalism, including physical assaults, attacks on Islamic centers and the desecration of mosques and cemeteries.”
“In this context, acceptance of various forms of intolerance, including hate speech and the propagation of negative stereotypes against Islam and Muslims in some western countries contribute towards proliferation of intolerant societies. This process is further supported by… the exploitation of freedom of expression and perpetuation of an ideological context advocating an inescapable conflict of civilizations.”
Another factor favoring “the climate of intolerance” is:
“…the negative role played by major media outlets who not only propagate stereotypes and misperceptions about Islam, but also undermine and usually keep shadowed any meaningful instance of individuals or groups speaking out against intolerance, including advocacy of religious hatred and violence. This biased approach of the media has helped drawing an emphatically demonized, sometimes dehumanized, image of Muslims in the minds of a certain class of people which is predisposed to xenophobic feelings due to the increasingly dire economic situation, or the simply to the irrational fear of the other.”
Chapter 2 of the report deals with “Manifestations of Islamophobia in the West.” According to the OIC:
“The number of Islamophobic incidents continues to rise in the US, as a result of anti-Muslim propaganda. It is particularly alarming that anti-Muslim sentiments are taking deeper roots infiltrating further in the educational system. Notable among several other worrying trends/cases are: the initiatives taken by a leading and powerful US legislator [US Representative Peter King] to convene special Congressional Hearings on Radicalization of Islam in the US… In the same vein, the Republican Party in the recent 2013 [sic] US Presidential elections also used the anti-Islam card as a strategy.”
“With regard to Islamophobic trends in Europe, various reports and polls have revealed growing misperception vis-à-vis Islam and Muslims. Among the most common and recurring… are the ideas that Muslims are inclined to violence including revenge and retaliation; that Islam is an inherently expansionist religion, which strives for political influence, and whose followers are obsessed with proselytizing others, and more generally that Islam deprives women of their rights and encourages religious fanaticism and radicalism. According to the same polls, only a minor portion of the public tends to see Islam in a more positive light, as being a religion of peace that preaches love for neighbors, charity, openness and tolerance… Muslims who live in xenophobic environments are more exposed to daily stress and other forms of moral prejudice.”
The OIC concludes that “journalists and media organizations have a responsibility to avoid promoting rhetoric of hate by acting as a platform for its widespread dissemination.”
Chapter 3 of the OIC report highlights “Some Positive Developments” in terms of initiatives and other steps and positions taken to combat Islamophobia, including:
“…the condemnation of anti-Muslim hate speech by various quarters, including non-Muslim religious leaders; the barring from entry of certain Islamophobes to a number of countries where they intended to take part in anti-Muslim rallies or deliver inflammatory lectures; the recognition of Muslim holidays and other strict sanctions taken against acts of manifest religious intolerance. It was noted with satisfaction that a number of international organizations, including UNSECO, the OSCE and the Council of Europe, have recognized the danger posed by Islamophobia and have taken concrete steps to combat it, notably by laying down Guidelines for Educators on Countering Intolerance and Discrimination against Muslims.”
Chapter 4 of the report, “OIC Initiatives and Activities to Counter Islamophobia,” focused on the OIC’s ongoing efforts to promote the so-called Istanbul Process, an aggressive effort by Muslim countries to make it an international crime to criticize Islam. The explicit aim of the Istanbul Process is to enshrine in international law a global ban on all critical scrutiny of Islam and Islamic Sharia law.
In recent years, the OIC has been engaged in a determined diplomatic offensive to persuade Western democracies to implement United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution 16/18, which calls on all countries to combat “intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of… religion and belief.” (Analysis of the OIC’s war on free speech can be found here and here.)
Resolution 16/18, which was adopted at HRC headquarters in Geneva in March 2011 (with the support of the Obama Administration)—together with the OIC-sponsored Resolution 66/167, which was quietly approved by the 193-member UN General Assembly on December 19, 2011—is widely viewed as marking a significant step forward in OIC efforts to advance the international legal concept of defaming Islam.
According to the OIC report:
“In November 2012, a special ministerial barnstorming session was convened on the sidelines of the 39th session of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers, which aimed at devising an OIC Approach for Combating Discrimination and Intolerance against Muslims…The session… called for constituting a panel of eminent persons including renowned legal experts and human rights practitioners to offer its expert view on the issue of religious intolerance and incitement to hatred to the 12th Islamic Summit. The panel, which was held in Istanbul, in January 2013, expressed support for the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution 16/18, on combating intolerance, discrimination, incitement to violence and violence on the basis of religion or belief.”
“The OIC also hosted the 3rd Meeting of International Experts on the Implementation of UNHRC Resolution 16/18, under the framework of the Istanbul Process… The meeting… attended by delegations from over sixty countries… reaffirmed the international community’s commitment to Resolution 16/18 and the need to focus on its implementation.”
Chapter 5 of the OIC report provides a set of conclusions and recommendations, which call on Western governments, international organizations and non-state actors to:
“Take all necessary measures within their power and legal/jurisdictional systems to ensure a safe environment free from Islamophobic harassment… by strictly enforcing applicable hate crime and discrimination laws;
“Create, whenever necessary, specialized bodies and initiatives in order to combat Islamophobia… based on internationally recognized human rights principles and standards;
“Combat Islamophobic hate crimes, which can be fuelled by Islamophobic hate speech in the media and on the Internet;
“Take all necessary measures to ensure that the media refrains from serving as a platform for the dissemination of hate speech… by associating extremism and terrorism to Islam and Muslims… and presents the true positive nature of Islam.
“Implement provisions of UNHRC Resolution 16/18 through the Istanbul Process mechanism as it offers a positive platform for debate, exchange of best practices and maintaining of a common and unified stance.”
The report states that “the OIC and the Member States should not be complacent in underscoring the fact that our present day world is gradually being driven towards the dangerous precipices of growing intolerance of religious and cultural diversity. This is the clear and present danger that the OIC has been consistent in warning the international community against. The sooner the phenomenon of Islamophobia is addressed, the better it is for ensuring peaceful coexistence of the present as well for the future generations to come.”
The report concludes with the transcript of a speech by OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, in which he thanks American and European political leaders for their help (here and here) in advancing his efforts to restrict free speech in the West.
“The Istanbul Process initiated with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton to build further on the consensus building that went into Resolution 16/18 must be carried forward. While the resolution forms a triumph of multilateralism, Istanbul Process must also be seen as a poster child of OIC-US-EU cooperation… I appreciate that this Process has come to be recognized as the way forward by all stakeholders… We need to build on it,” Ihsanoglu said.

Muhammad admits to liking ‘..sheep, the color purple and talking to inanimate objects..’
by, Lori Lowenthal Marcus | The Jewish Press – The Jawa Report – h/t Blazing CatFur
It appears the president of a university-funded student group at San Francisco State boasted how much he loved his knife and that it made him want to stab an Israeli soldier.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center sent a warning to officials at San Francisco State University on Monday, Dec. 2, advising them of a potential threat to Jewish students there.
The basis for the warning was the posting on the social media forum Tumblr which appears to be by the president of San Francisco State’s General Union of Palestine Students, Mohammad Hammad.
The photo shows Hammad with a knife, beneath which is the caption, “I seriously can not get over how much I love this blade. It is the sharpest thing I own and cuts through everything like butter and just holding it makes me want to stab an Israeli soldier.”
The AMCHA Initiative, the co-founder of which has been featured in The Jewish Press for her tireless work in exposing anti-Semitism on California campuses, first found the photo and threatening language.
Earlier this month, AMCHA discovered that GUPS was involved in another event at SFSU at which students were encouraged to create art projects using a stencil bearing the image of a notorious terrorist and another stencil that stated “MY HEROES HAVE ALWAYS KILLED COLONIZERS.”
Both AMCHA and the Wiesenthal Center contacted SFSU President Leslie Wong over the past several days, warning her that statements such as the one allegedly issued by Hammad, especially given the other recent event in which GUPS was involved that also glorified killers of Jews, potentially constitute a threat to the university’s Jewish students.
The Wiesenthal Center told Wong and issued a public statement that “it is outrageous and unacceptable that the leader of a university-funded group would invoke a message of death and violence.”
“How can Jewish students feel safe on a campus where the leader of a university-sanctioned and funded student organization, known for its antisemitic activity, has publicly proclaimed his desire to stab an Israeli soldier?
“President Wong needs to take immediate and firm steps to ensure the safety and well-being of Jewish students at San Francisco State,” Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, co-founder of the AMCHA Initiative, told The Jewish Press by email.
The photo and violent statement disappeared from Hammad’s account after the two Jewish groups contacted Wong, but a cached version of the picture on Tumblr remains.
From the Jawa Report:
‘..I’m guessing this guy is a Tea Partier..’
The fact that SFSU hasn’t and won’t do anything just goes to show that most of what passes for cultural sensitivity is just slang for we don’t believe brown people are as morally accountable as white people. It’s not even the soft bigotry of low expectations, it’s the hard bigotry of believing Muslims don’t have it in them to act in a civilized manner and therefore we’ll treat them like children. Or retards.
And yes, this guy does support terrorism. The last time I checked, Hamas is a terrorist organization and it looks like he has fond feelings for them.
And the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, also a terrorist organization.
Islamic Center of Wheaton, Il. 900 E Geneva Rd, Wheaton, IL 60187
by, Bob Goldsborough | Chicago Tribune
A mosque recently moved into a former church building on the northeast side of Wheaton, becoming what is believed to be the city’s first Islamic institution.
In late August, the Islamic Center of Wheaton bought and moved into the 26,193-square-foot former First Assembly of God Church at 900 E. Geneva Road, at the southwest corner of Geneva Road and President Street. Records show that, through a bank trust, the Islamic Center of Wheaton paid $3.15 million for the church and its 7.08-acre property.
Mosque spokesman Abraham Antar said he and his fellow congregants are excited about their new home, which he said is Wheaton’s first Muslim community.
“Wheaton is a city of faith, and we’re very privileged to be able to establish an Islamic community for Wheaton and especially for the western suburbs,” he said. “There are a lot of Muslims in Wheaton and the surrounding towns. It’s unfortunate for the (First Assembly of God) church that they lost their opportunity to stay there.”
Antar also said Islamic Center of Wheaton leaders are looking forward to getting to know other religious institutions in the area.
“This is a beautiful location, and one of the great attractions is that it gives us an opportunity as an Islamic organization to really connect with other churches,” he said. “It really presents us with an opportunity to really bridge the relationship with all congregations within the area. We haven’t really started yet, but we would like to.”
Antar said about 700 to 800 men and women have been worshiping at the mosque each Friday.
“Everybody seems really happy with this place,” he said.
In recent years, the one-story Wheaton church building had been on the market as the church had fallen on hard times. The church, at one point, even proposed a dense, multifamily housing development on the property. In 2011, the church’s lender, State Bank of Illinois, initiated foreclosure proceedings. The bank then took title to the property in September 2012 at a sheriff’s sale, and the bank sold the property to the mosque. The First Assembly of God stopped holding services and moved out of the building in January, local officials said.
Over the past several years, Muslim groups have struggled to win zoning approval for mosques around DuPage County. Two separate groups in 2011 won hard-fought battles before the DuPage County Board to pave the way for mosques near Willowbrook and Lombard. Two other groups resorted to federal lawsuits after DuPage County Board members gave the thumbs-down to plans for mosques near West Chicago and Naperville, prompting board members to reverse course.
The Islamic Center of Wheaton did not require zoning changes because the building is being used for the same purpose — as a religious institution — and had been vacant for only about seven months, city officials said. Under the terms of the special-use permit that the First Assembly of God was granted by the Wheaton City Council in 1990 before constructing the church, the building would only be considered “abandoned” and require new zoning approval it had been vacant for more than 18 months. Mosque leaders needed simply to apply for an occupancy permit with the city.
In Wheaton, Antar said the mosque received its occupancy permit from the city’s staff immediately after the group was able to prove the building had been vacant for less than 18 months.
“We want to present a positive image of an Islamic center,” Antar said. “We just want to be a good neighbor. The Prophet (Muhammad) said we have to be a good neighbor, and that’s what we want to be.”
Hizb ut-Tahrir is banned in most Muslim countries for being a terrorist organization although remains legal in the United States, Israel and most other Western nations.

Hizb ut-Tahrir continues extensive campaign in Judea, Samaria against ‘Western values’; 13 year-old speaker condemns women who report abuse.
Pan-Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir is continuing an extensive campaign to combat Western values regarding women’s rights by holding conferences about women in Sharia [Islamic] law, who are raised to be strictly obedient to their fathers and later to their husbands. The conferences are being held in Judea and Samaria as well as in Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem.
According to Islamic law, women must ask permission to leave the house atany time. After marriage, they are instructed that they must be available at all times to satisfy their husband’s whims – with or without her explicit consent.
One of the events held in Jerusalem featured a 13 year-old girl named Zeinab, who appeared in conservative Muslim garb and read a speech calling Islam “the kindest religion in mankind”, urging women to keep the strictures given to them by Sharia law. Zeinab emphasized her devoutness in prayer, reading the Quran, and religious dress.
Zeinab immediately attacked women’s rights organizations thereafter, claiming that the freedom given to women to leave their fathers’ homes after age 18 leads to “licentiousness”, including the ability to talk to men over the internet, at university, and eventually behind closed doors.
Zeinab also attacked women’s rights groups for encouraging women to complain if they suffered domestic abuse, leading to arrests of male family members. Western rights and freedoms don’t apply to Muslim women, the girl claimed, and are simply tools by the West to encourage women to give up their bodies freely.
Ironically, Hizb ut-Tahrir is banned in many Muslim countries due to its many alleged links to terrorism but remains legal in Israel and most western states under the very laws of freedom of expression it seeks to subvert.
The full speech (in Arabic) is available below.

Nazi Muslims Put Swastikas in Couple’s Front Yard
by, Chauncy Glover | Detroit Channel 4 News | h/t Blazing CatFur
DEARBORN, Michigan: Metro Detroit is known as being a big melting pot, a place where people of all cultures can live together. But one couple says they are facing ethnic intimidation all because of a flag outside their home.
The latest incident they fell victim to was paintballs splattered all over their home and cars Friday night . Now the family says they fear for their safety.
Terresa and Hussein Dakhlallah say it all started two years ago when they put an American flag and an Israeli flag up outside of their Dearborn home.
The Racist Muslims Attacked and Vandalized the Families Property Including Home and Vehicles
Terresa is American, but she grew up in Canada. Hussein is from Lebanon.
“They left Nazi signs in our front yard, ” said Terresa. “Two people were standing there, one with a lighter and one with a gas tank, telling us that they were going to burn our home down.”
The couple has been taunted over and over again — even on Thanksgiving as Terresa began to decorate her home for Christmas.
And late Friday night a group men in an SUV came back firing paintballs at the cars and on the side of the house.
The couple is terrified and don’t feel safe in their own home.
Now that Dearborn police are involved, the couple hopes things will get better before they get worse.

Spreading Hate at the Speed of Light: The SPLC
by, Matt Barber | The Townhall
The magnitude of this Obama administration’s “progressive” radicalism becomes more evident with each passing day. In recent months, there has been a drastic spike in acts of both anti-Christian and anti-conservative discrimination and intimidation on military bases across the country. This mounting harassment is not being carried out at the hands of regular enlisted folk but, rather, at the hands of high-ranking officials who, in their official capacity, are targeting Christian and conservative organizations and individuals in an effort to silence them.
It has long been suspected that the Obama administration is using propaganda circulated by the roundly discredited Southern Poverty Law Center, or SPLC, a left-wing extremist group that, in recent years, has adopted two primary goals: 1) raising truckloads of money and 2) smearing as “domestic hate groups” dozens of mainstream Christian ministries like the Family Research Council, or FRC, and the American Family Association, or AFA.
This suspicion has now been verified.
The problem on military bases has gotten so bad, in fact, that the U.S. Congress is<href=”#.uo-wukzodqn”>demanding answers from the Pentagon. Recently, the AFA-affiliated OneNewsNow.com newsgroup reported that “Congressman Alan Nunnelee (R-Mississippi) is 1 of 38 members of Congress signing off on a letter to the Secretary of the Army – especially about an incident last month at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, in which the Tupelo-based American Family Association was labeled in Army training material as a ‘hate group.’ The Army initially claimed it was an isolated incident.
“‘But as we looked into it, [we found] this is not an isolated incident,’ Nunnelee [told] OneNewsNow. ‘There are a number of cases where the Army has singled out the American Family Association and other Christian organizations as hate groups, and service men and women have been threatened with sanctions if they support these groups.”
After a tremendous public outcry – and in an embarrassing slap to the face of the SPLC – the Pentagon quickly backpedaled, later apologizing about the Camp Shelby incident and publicly admitting that, despite the SPLC’s absurd claims to the contrary, the AFA is not a “hate group.”
Still, rather than distancing itself from the anti-Christian SPLC as one might expect, the Obama administration has, instead, strengthened ties to the hard-left outfit. Even after this string of military scandals.
For instance, I recently learned that on its official website, the FBI lists as one of its primary “hate crimes resources,” the Southern Poverty Law Center.
This is especially mysterious when you consider that the FBI’s own verified hate crimes statistics are completely at odds with numbers put out by the SPLC in its fundraising propaganda. Whereas the FBI indicates that there was a sharp 24.3 percent decrease in hate crimes from 1996 to 2010, with racial hate crimes dropping by 41.9 percent, the SPLC incongruously claims that since 2000, the number of “hate groups” has somehow increased by 67.3 percent.
So send your money right away!
The FBI’s empirical data doesn’t track with the SPLC’s political propaganda. Consequently, by partnering so closely with this discredited organization, the Department of Justice significantly undermines its own credibility.
Still, while the SPLC has proven utterly unreliable in its actuarial acumen – as well as intentionally dishonest – it has also proven demonstrably dangerous in its prolonged campaign of anti-Christian agitation.
You may recall that it was the Southern Poverty Law Center’s somewhat clever, yet patently dishonest and reprehensible strategy of juxtaposing, as fellow “hate groups,” mainstream Christian organizations like the FRC and the AFA alongside violent extremist groups like the Aryan Brotherhood and the Skin Heads that, on Aug. 15, 2012, led to an actual act of domestic terrorism.
On that date, “gay” activist Floyd Lee Corkins II – who later confessed in court that he was spurred-on by the SPLC’s anti-Christian materials – entered the lobby of the Washington-based Family Research Council intending to kill every Christian within.
Corkins was armed with both a gun and a backpack full of ammunition. He also had 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches that he intended to rub in the faces of his would-be victims. (FRC had recently defended the food chain’s COO Dan Cathy for pro-natural marriage statements he made.)
The only thing standing between Corkins and mass murder was FRC facilities manager and security specialist Leo Johnson. As Corkins shouted disapproval for FRC’s “politics,” he shot Johnson who, despite a severely wounded arm, managed to tackle Corkins and disarm him.
Of Johnson’s actions, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said, “The security guard here is a hero, as far as I’m concerned.”
Upon hearing of Leo’s selfless act of heroism, I was reminded of John 15:13: “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
But according to both the SPLC and the FBI (by virtue of its close ties to the group), Leo’s heart is, instead, full of hate. Everyone at FRC is hateful.
In fact, if you happen to be a Bible-believing Christian, you too are hateful.
You get the drill.
The Obama administration has absolutely no business partnering with this extremist organization – and it’s an outrage that it does. If this troubles you as much as it does me, please contact the FBI at (202) 324-3000 and respectfully voice your concern. Then call or email your local FBI office. (Click here to find that location.) It’s critical that freedom-loving Americans light-up the FBI’s phone lines and demand that all facets of government completely disassociate from the SPLC and disavow any further use of its anti-Christian propaganda.
The Southern Poverty Law Center must be held accountable for its inflammatory and potentially deadly anti-Christian bigotry.

Arab Muslims are murdering black Africans from Ethiopia and harvesting their organs for sale to wealthy Arabs.
Arab Muslims are conducting house to house searches, dragging the African men, women and children out into the streets. Often beating them, torturing them, raping both the men and women. Then murdering them.
Arab Muslim slave owners beat their African slaves into submission.
So, where is the ACLU? Where is the NAACP? Where is the Rev. Al Sharpton and the Rev. Jesse Jackson?
Where is that hypocrite Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam?
Oh yeah, conflict of interest.
Slavery is not dead. No, it is alive and well. And we have those racist Arab Muslims to thank for that.
And their Islamic ideology of racial supremacy and indentured servitude.
But equally so, we can thank those people I mentioned above.
And let’s not forget Barack Hussein Obama. Some might think that he would find offense that black Africans are being enslaved today in 2013. Some might even think that he would find offense that black Africans are being rounded up, beaten, tortured, raped and murdered. Especially since he is a black African as well.
Well, some might think wrong.
You see, there is a conflict of interest with Barack Hussein Obama as well. A conflict that transcends the inhumanity of slavery. And that is the conflict of the cult of Islam that Obama has pledged his allegiance to.

COOPER CITY, South Florida: A religious youth group leader admitted Tuesday that he made a child pornography video of one of his 14-year-old male students, court records show.
Umair Tayyab Sheikh, 24, of Cooper City, faces at least 15 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a charge of coercing a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct to make child pornography.
FBI agents began investigating Sheikh in September 2012 when they realized that someone was sharing inappropriate sexual images of young children online from a computer at the home Sheikh shared with his parents.
Sheikh, a U.S. citizen who was born in Pakistan, was getting married in Pakistan when officials searched his computer at the Cooper City residence. He was arrested Jan. 5 when his flight landed in Miami.
Sheikh admitted he had child pornography on his computer as well as on a laptop and phone he had brought overseas with him, agents said. He told them he preferred videos of girls between the ages of 12 and 15 and admitted that he had pornographic images and videos of young children, court records show.
Sheikh also admitted that his laptop contained a video he made of a 14-year-old male student masturbating, records show. The name of the mosque where Sheikh led the youth group was not included in court records.
“The video depicts Sheikh undressing … [the boy] … and forcing him to masturbate. The victim … is visibly upset and embarrassed in the video. The victim … stated that Sheikh had convinced his parents to allow Sheikh to continue religious classes with him over the summer break. Sheikh convinced the parents that their son would best be able to lean the Koran if he stayed at Sheikh’s home on weekends during summer vacation,” according to the plea agreement Sheikh signed.
Prosecutors said they will recommend that Sheikh serve 15 years in federal prison followed by 20 years of supervised release. He also must register as a sex offender. Sheikh, who has been imprisoned since his arrest, is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 11 by U.S. District Judge Robert Scola in federal court in Miami.

With al-Qur’an as their guide and Hitler’s ‘Mein Kampf’ as their inspiration, these central tenets of Islam are the foundation of today’s Egyptian Islamic Nazi Party. The Muslim Nazis in the video interview above discuss how Islam and Nazism have combined to form an Egyptian Nazi Political Party based on Arabic supremacy and racial superiority. They acknowledge their future plans to spread their ‘Egyptian IslamiNazism’ around the world through the rise of the Egyptian military and the acquisition of nuclear weapons. They also state that ‘..we do not recognize the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt..’
Oh yeah, and several members of this organization will be speaking in Washington, D.C. on 05 December 2013 at the Saudi Arabian owned: SFS Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center at Georgetown University. The event is entitled: Egypt & The Struggle for Democracy.
Also attending will be representatives of the Obama administration. Congressman Keith Ellison will be giving the keynote address. You may remember him as the ‘..first Muslim Congressman to swear into office using al-Qur’an..’ Other guest speakers will include Dalia Mogahed, Obama’s advisor to the Muslim Brotherhood, Ramy Jan, a member of the Egyptian Nazi Party and Abdul Mawgoud Dardery, the Muslim Brotherhood MP.
Abdul Mawgoud Dardery was granted legal permanent residency in the United States by the Obama administration, even though he was involved in child pornography in the past, while temporarily residing in America. The Obama administration and the US State Department issued a directive specifically barring Customs officials from conducting any form of inspections of Dardery and the other members of the delegation upon their arrival to New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.
Other guest speakers will include: (From Canada)
Wael Haddara, Mohammed Elmasry & Mohammed Fadel.
So, it is not simply ‘Islam’ that is infiltrating into our nation but rather, IslamiNazism. A complete and total ideology based on racial supremacy.

A world history textbook that sparked a heated controversy over the way it covers Islam will remain in Volusia County high schools, the School Board decided Monday after hearing four hours of public comments about its merits and shortcomings.
“I’m still confident with this book and its presentation to our students,” School Board Chairwoman Diane Smith said after hearing from nearly 80 speakers with widely differing opinions.
The board didn’t take a formal vote, but only member Linda Costello pushed for a more thorough review. Candace Lankford, Stan Schmidt and Ida Wright sided with Smith to keep the textbook in Volusia classrooms.
“It’s kind of what I would have expected,” said Walter Hanford, a book opponent who stuck around long enough to hear the board discussion. Hanford told the board earlier in the meeting the “World History” textbook published by Prentice Hall “whitewashes” the history of Islam and its Muslim followers, including involvement in the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the shootings at Fort Hood, Texas.
The textbook controversy erupted in early November after a Deltona High parent complained about the book’s treatment of the Islamic religion to a Lake County friend, who posted information on Facebook and organized a protest rally before the School Board’s Nov. 5 meeting.
The Nov. 5 meeting was canceled before it began over security concerns and the controversy has continued to simmer, with Volusia County Republican Executive Committee Chairman Tony Ledbetter taking leadership of the textbook protest.
The atmosphere at Monday’s meeting was quieter with opponents and supporters of the textbook filling the boardroom to overflowing while a small number of people milled around outside.
And a new group — students — weighed in Monday on the controversy.
Brian Vaughn, a Student Government representative at Spruce Creek High School, turned in a petition he said was signed by more than 500 students at five high schools in favor of keeping the current textbook and curriculum.
“We hope that the School Board will respect our voices in the process of education and reject voices of intolerance and censorship,” the petition reads.
Meanwhile, opponents of the textbook said it’s full of omissions and errors that favor Islam over other religions like Christianity and Judaism. They asked the board for a thorough review of the book, hoping to force revisions as were approved in Palm Beach schools or supplementary materials, as Brevard schools are considering.
“This book is ridiculously biased. The whole history of Muslim is violence,” said Armando Escalante of Port Orange.
“This is a vanilla history,” said Joel Paige of New Smyrna Beach.
But Ormond Beach historian Alfred Perkins argued “omissions are inevitable” in textbooks that condense thousands of years of history into a single volume. Perkins said he had “no complaint about accuracy and balance” in the chapter on Muslim civilizations that sparked the local complaints.
Supporters of the book said it’s important to teach students about all religions and their impact on world history as a way of improving their understanding of cultures and religions so they’ll be more tolerant of those who have different beliefs.
“Learning about Islam doesn’t make anyone Muslim,” said Suzanne Southard of DeLand.
“We can’t allow fear…to dictate what will be in our textbooks. We need to be able to operate in a global way,” said Christe Ashley of DeLand.
George Griffin of Deltona admired the student speakers at Monday’s meeting and said the textbook debate isn’t one of Republican versus Democrats or liberals and conservatives. “This is a knowledge versus ignorance issue,” he said.
The last of Monday’s speakers was Rhiannon Dotson, a 12-year-old sixth-grader from Orlando.
“I feel we should learn about all cultures and religions,” she told the School Board. “This whole thing is about hate and ignorance. Please don’t teach me and my friends hate.”
Imam asks judge to drop charges because they ’..violate his religious freedoms under Islam..’
by, Daniel Greenfield | Front Page Magazine
An attorney for a Des Moines Islamic leader charged with sexual abuse and exploitation is asking a judge to drop two of the charges, arguing that they violate the man’s religious freedom.
Spahic faces one count of third-degree sexual abuse and two counts of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist. He was arrested in August after a 42-year-old woman and her 18-year-old daughter told police that Spahic sexually assaulted them during a religious ceremony.
Iowa law spells out that counselors and therapists are barred from “sexual conduct” with patients. But because Spahic never had a formal relationship with the two women, using his religious position to charge him should be unconstitutional, Campbell argued in the motion.
“The ceremony he was performing was not psychotherapy, nor was it counseling,” the motion said. “The sexual exploitation charges are therefore necessarily based on his religious identity and the religious nature of his relationships to the accusers.”
So what did Spahic’s religious counseling involve?
The woman on Aug. 12 called Spahic to her house in Johnston for help with her daughter, who reportedly suffered personal issues, including depression and drug use, police and court papers said. Spahic allegedly performed an Islamic ceremony that involved “chanting and rubbing the body with oil,” court papers said.
In one section of the sealed minutes of evidence, prosecutors “inappropriately refer to Mr. Spahic as a ‘Voodoo priest,’” according to the motion. At the time of his arrest Spahic served as the imam – a leader of Islamic prayer services – at the Des Moines Islamic and Cultural Center Bosniak on Lower Beaver Road.
That’s not the only thing inappropriate about that story. But I think Voodoo priests are right to be offended by that one. Still if Muslims have the religious freedom to:
1. Promote the mass murder of non-Muslims
2. Donate money to terrorist groups
3. Subvert national security
… why not sexual abuse?

While every other religion in the world is more peaceful, Islam is somehow known as the “religion of peace.” Yet since its inception in the 7th Century C.E., more than 270 million people have been the victims of Muslim rage. These deaths were not just the sad side effect of war and Muslim conquests, as this number of 270 million increases on a daily basis, even in our modern era of “enlightenment.”
The Religion of Peace website has been keeping track of as many deadly Muslim terror attacks as possible since 9/11, and the attacks alone since then are nearly 22,000 at this time, not to mention the inconceivable body count which accompanies each attack. Typical wartime battles and normal crime which is not carried out in the name of Islam are not included, nor are all the honor killings between spouses. Including such attacks, this number of 22,000 would increase significantly.
In Pakistan, just one country out of the approximately 50 Muslim nations worldwide, honor killings are reported in The Express Tribune practically daily. One couple was just gunned down in Charsadda for having “illicit” relations, and a family of four was killed because one of the daughters eloped with the son of the killer. Another recent murder case in Pakistan was also the result of perceived immoral behavior. This type of honor killing is known as karo-kari, murder which is done because of the “immorality” of the victim or victims. In this case, a son killed his mother for having an affair, and according to him, he unintentionally killed his eight year-old brother as well.
These honor killings are not isolated to Muslim countries like Pakistan. The UK is importing Muslim violence with its massive, uncontrolled immigration with Pakistani immigrants being the largest Muslim group in the country. A Pakistani immigrant recently killed his wife in an honor killing when his daughter, who had already been married and divorced in an arranged marriage, told her father she fell in love with a man in Dubai and would be getting married. But marrying for love was seen as dishonoring the family according to this Muslim man, and he decided that the only way to restore honor to the family would be to kill them all. He set fire to the family home, trapping all the women inside, his wife, three daughters and a friend. Fortunately the three daughters and friend escaped, albeit with broken bones after jumping out of windows, but his wife died, killed even though she also disapproved of the relationship.
The most interesting part of the story is how the man supposedly tried to kill himself but was unable to carry it out. He also initially told police someone else committed the crime, a group led by a “white woman.” If this was meant to restore honor to the family, why didn’t he own up to what he did? Too cowardly to face the music and too cowardly to kill himself, yet he had no problems whatsoever attempting to murder his entire family due to his “religious” beliefs. This is Islam: killing your wife, your mother, your daughter, your sister, your niece… or other “loved” ones in the name of religion.
Islamic violence takes the form of both personal attacks, like in these honor cases, which are becoming more frequent in our Western nations with the influx of Muslim immigrants, and impersonal attacks meant to kill as many infidels as possible. (Of course these attacks are very personal to the victims and their families.) Places which we never think of in terms of Islamic terrorism have been seeing attacks, like the recent suicide bombing in Tiananmen Square and another one at a beach resort in Tunisia, which believe it or not, was Tunisia’s first suicide bombing since 2002 when 21 people were killed at a synagogue.
Suicide bombings are “all the rage” among the Muslim youth worldwide with training camps meant to indoctrinate children in places like Pakistan and the Gaza Strip. Our “Numbers Don’t Lie” article contains poll results on the amount of Muslims who support violence and terror as well as our “Palestinians Support Terror: Statistical Data” article, which includes the largely ignored fact that 83% of Palestinians support suicide bombing.
It all begins with the children. Parents instill in their children the belief that jihad is a value, and dying in a suicide bombing is an honorable thing to do. They bring these values with them to the West, and in 2012, WND reported that there were 35 terror training camps operating inside the US. The group responsible, Soldiers of Allah, is responsible for nearly 50 attacks on American soil and is known in the US as Muslims of America. They train American converts, and the leader, Sheikh Mubarak Gilani, states in the recruitment video regarding infidels, “Act like you are his friend. Then kill him.” Many European Muslims travel abroad to terror training camps in places like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia, etc., and bring their knowledge home in order to help them plan terror attacks in Europe. Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was also trained abroad and used his knowledge back home.
Itching for violence, European Muslims have been traveling to Syria in order to do their jihadi part, and “two or three” American Muslims were involved in the Kenian Mall attack as well as Muslims living in the UK and Norway and possibly other Western nations. (The official reports have changed, and the identities and exact number of assailants are hazy.)
The radical views of Muslims are consistent with their religious doctrine, whether they live in Europe, the United States, Australia, or Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh or Gaza. This is why Muslims from around the world, even in the West, go to where the fighting is, or they create their own violence in terror attacks. It’s no wonder with stories like an Islamic University Dean in the Netherlands promoting the punishment of stoning, or a Canadian Imam declaring that women need their husbands’ permission to speak, or an influential Muslim leader in the UK, also the founder of the Muslim Council of Britain, allowed to flourish in Great Britain, now convicted in Bangladesh of the murder of 18 people in 1971 and sentenced to death. All of these stories, featured on The Religion of Peace website, demonstrate how the great lie in the West that Islam is peaceful will lead our civilization to ruin if nothing changes.
What other religion can be compared to this? In a Pakistani seminary, a place where those seeking religious instruction go, a bomb that was being prepared, most assuredly as part of the course instruction, went off prematurely and injured three people. This is what is taught in a religious school? With all this violence, “the religion of peace” seems more like “the religion of death!”
