A concerned grandfather voiced his concerns about the increasing incidents of sexual harassment of young girls on their way to school by migrants in a meeting in the German town of Bad Schlema. His own granddaughter has been victim of sexual harassment and he fears it will be much worse when girls will wear less clothing in the summer or dress for physical education. The mayor’s reply angered the over 100 citizens who were present: “It’s simple, don’t provoke them and don’t walk in these areas.”
The crowd went furious, some mocked the absurdity of not being able to walk to school in your own town, some demanded he step down immediately. Later the situation escalated and the Mayor threatened to call the police and clear the room because of incitement of hatred (sources below).
He said it’s “technically not necessary to walk near the refugee shelters, there are alternative routes.”
LISTEN to the crowd at this Town Hall Meeting when the Mayor of Bad Schlema had the audacity to blame the little German girls (under age 10) for sexually provoking the Muslim Immigrants: (NOTE: This is the EXACT SAME EXCUSE Muslim men use for raping little girls.)
Later the citizens went on how government actions leave them no other choice than drift off to the Right political spectrum. In many cases the so-called “refugees” receive more benefits, better housing and more legal protection than natives. They also face very little legal consequences for sexual harassment, theft and vandalism. Because of the refugee crisis, Germany’s new Right Wing Party “Alternative for Germany” went from under 4% to 12.5% in latest polls.
In Islam, any woman not wearing a headscarf or not dressing modestly is considered “fair game” and is therefore free to rape. The number of rapes has increased dramatically ever since Germany has opened the flood gates to millions of young Muslim men. Police are instructed to cover up the nationality of rapists – this tower of lies collapsed after the huge scale gang sex attacks in Cologne with over 500 women being attacked simultaneously.

WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) — The religious landscape in the United States is changing.
Mosques are not as ubiquitous as Starbucks or Mcdonald’s but they are now sewn into America’s landscape.
“That represents something new and I think for some people, represents a threat,” he said.
Construction of mosques is soaring, especially in America’s suburbs. The number has more than doubled since 2000, up from about 1200 houses of Islamic worship to an estimated 2600 today.
The census bureau does not ask questions about religion. We can’t say if the number of mosques is growing faster than the muslim population.
According to a rough estimate from Scott Thumma with the Hartford Institute for Religion Research, there’s one mosque for every 1,562 Muslims as compared to about one Christian church for every 524 christians, but again these are rough numbers.
Counterterrorism expert Kyle Shideler says some mosques in America are connected by financial ties or influence to groups like the Muslim brotherhood, which the State Department does not list as a terrorist organization.
“I become concerned when we are looking at large mosques that are raised with money coming from overseas and typically you see that with the large mosques,” Shideler said.
Rabbi Jonah Pesner sees mosques as a deterrent to terrorism.”They are Americans and they are seeking a better life for their families just like you and I.”
Muslims are held in a favorable view by the majority of Americans according to a Sadat Chair poll taken in late 2015. But at the same time, the majority of American’s 61 percent to 37 percent hold an unfavorable view of Islam.
‘..More than 80% of the 2,800 mosques in the US are operated by the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Organization, with a new mosque being built every week..’

In Germany, following a wave of Islamic immigration, one political party is considering a call for shutting down all of the country’s mosques in a desperate bid to prevent terrorist attacks, rape sprees and other acts of violence and Muslim domination.
In the U.S., President Obama marked the new year by visiting a mosque and has invested a great deal of effort to downplay the connection between Islam and terrorism, while leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has proposed temporarily halting all Muslim immigration.
A growing chorus of U.S. politicians, pundits and scholars are calling for closer monitoring of U.S. mosques, the number of which has grown exponentially since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people on U.S. soil.
Experts on Islamic terrorism are calling the estimated 2,500 to 3,100 mosques in America “ticking time bombs.”
Every state now has at least one. California and New York lead the way, each with more than 500 mosques, followed by Texas with just over 300.
As the number of mosques increase, so do acts of Islamic terror in the U.S.
FBI Director James Comey told Congress recently that his agency is stretched to the limit trying to keep up with nearly 1,000 active ISIS investigations in all 50 states, and that does not include probes tied to al-Qaida, al-Shabab or other Islamic groups.
While the FBI is able to foil the vast majority of Islamic terror plots, last year was particularly bloody with jihadist shootings in Chattanooga that killed five U.S. servicemen and another attack that took 14 lives at a Christmas party in San Bernardino.
Jihadist knife attacks at a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, and on the campus of University of California at Merced have recently injured at least a dozen others, some critically.
And everyone is jittery after what happened in Brussels, Belgium, last month.
Of the thousands of mosques in America, nearly 80 percent of them have been opened since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Listening to politicians in Congress and on presidential stump speeches, Americans might get the idea that ISIS is to blame for all of this violence. It uses the Internet to “poison the minds” of young Muslims, they say. But seven Islam experts and former Muslims contacted by WND say it’s not that simple and the problem goes beyond ISIS.
The root of the problem, they all agree, lies in the mosque.
Dr. Mark Christian, president and founder of the Global Faith Institute, which seeks to educate Americans about the true nature of mainstream Islam, says about 80 percent of the roughly 2,800 U.S. mosques are controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization whose stated goal is to bring the nations into compliance with Shariah law.
“You have a new mosque opening every week in America,” says Christian, a former child imam who grew up in Egypt the son of a Muslim Brotherhood operative before fleeing his homeland and converting to Christianity as a young adult.
Christian, now 44 and living in Nebraska under the threat of a fatwa, said the FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies don’t understand the source of Islamic violence. They have focused for years on learning about the ties of individual Muslims to groups like al-Qaida or ISIS when in fact they should be going to mosques and learning about the Quran and hadiths. All the answers are there, in the texts and in the mainstream Islamic interpretations of the texts, if they would only look.
So what are people being taught in the overwhelming majority of mosques?
Christian, who memorized two-thirds of the Quran by the age of 14, says he knows exactly what is being taught.
He said if you look at the jihadist attacks over the years in the U.S. and Europe you will find a common theme.
“The problem is you have law enforcement agents walking into a mosque but they are looking for the wrong thing,” he said. “They are trying to monitor mosques (back when they were allowed to do that before President Obama) to try to find dirt and what they will find is people seeking spiritual salvation, something all of us will look at as an honorable thing, but they are missing the ticking bomb.”
The key is in how the Muslim finds his salvation.
Christian said if you look at the lives of the 9/11 hijackers, the Boston bombers, the Chattanooga shooter, the attackers on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, and the Paris and Brussels’ attacks, you will find a group of young men whose lifestyles were not exactly pious.
Some smoked marijuana and partied at nightclubs, some watched pornography or committed fornication. All had gone through a phase where they were not practicing the five pillars of Islam which all good Muslims must observe.
Three kinds of Muslims
Christian says there are essentially three kinds of Muslims.
“There is a group who decided they will do the long-haul approach and try their best every day to work hard at fulfilling the five pillars of Islam,” he said. “Then you have the second type who just gives up and goes on sinning forever, not going to mosque or practicing the five pillars.”
These are your peaceful Muslims.
But it is the third type of Muslim who bears watching. He has fallen away from the faith into a life of sin but is looking for a way out. He is seeking atonement.
The mosque provides the vital link “from sinner to salvation” for the apostate Muslim. His imam will offer two choices.
Christian says the facial expressions of the suicide bombers who blew up the Brussels airport provided clues to their motivation.
“The confidence you see of those guys walking calmly to their own death as they push their carts, they are not trying to blow up the airport to make the ISIS leader proud any more than the 9/11 terrorists were flying their planes into a building so they can make Osama bin-Laden proud,” he said. “They are doing it to please their own Allah so they can gain salvation.”
And this is why the mosque is the key. It’s the central part of the cycle of terrorism. It provides the link between sinner and terrorist.
“He walks in as a sinner who has neglected his spiritual duties under Islam and is told this is what you need to do,” Christian said. “The imam does not tell him to go blow himself up, he just shows him the life of Muhammad and says this is what you need to emulate.”
If a backslidden Muslim has not been practicing his faith for years, the imam will tell him he must make up for all those days he did not say the required prayers five times a day. If he did not give alms he must make up for that.
“So you’re talking about someone who maybe hasn’t prayed in years and then is told he has to make up all those prayers. Same with fasting during the 30-day Ramadan. For every day you miss you are supposed to fast 60 days. So multiply 30 times 60 and how much is that? 1,800 days. This means they have to fast five years. For every one of those days you have to give out money to the poor, so you’re talking about two meals a day, so that’s $20 times 1,800 days, which comes to $3,600,” Christian says.
“To neglect this will put you in hell.”
So that third type of Muslim, lost but overwhelmed by what he must do to gain salvation, is looking for a short cut.
“They do not want to do the hard work and go for the long haul. The choice is spilling your own blood for the cause of Islam, or working hard for the rest of your life trying to fulfill your duty as a Muslim with no guarantee of salvation at the end,” Christian said. “And the more they dig into Islam the more they find out the work they need to do. And the jihadists, what they all want to do is find a quick and assured way for their own salvation.
“The mosque is propagating two ways to heaven, either the short trial of death or the long trial of making up for all the years they did not practice the five pillars of prayer, fasting, giving of alms, etc.”
Compare that to a backslidden Christian who walks into a Church. He will immediately be offered forgiveness under the shed blood of Jesus Christ.
Christian says that’s why he walked away from Islam. It offered no means for atonement of his sin, no assurance of salvation.
“The level of sin and judgment that those Muslims are under, very few Christians understand,” he said. “Those people are looking for salvation but they are brainwashed to the limit on how to achieve it.
“You can see this in the lives of the attackers at Charlie Hebdo and at Brussels and the Boston bombers,” he continued. “Even the attackers on 9/11, Muhammad Atta himself. All of them are not united by ISIS, they are not united by Osama bin-Laden or a certain ethnic background or citizenship. All are united by one thing – they are a lost soul looking for salvation and the mosque is showing them the way, spilling their own blood in order to get into heaven and enjoy the 72 virgins.”
At some point, the U.S. will be dealing with the same level of Islamic violence as Europe, where Muslim immigration has been chugging along for about 20 years longer.
The backlash is coming
Dr. Andrew Bostom, a Jewish scholar who has written several books on the history of Islam including “The Legacy of Jihad,” said the growing appeal of so-called “far right” parties in Europe is a natural outgrowth of the European Union’s 50-year experiment with Muslim immigration.
“The left will find one Nazi and say ‘Oh, they’re all Nazis,” he said.
While he concedes there may be a “tiny fragment of skin-heads” who are attracted to the AFD Party, that is not the source of its rapid rise. It is largely made up of ordinary Germans who’ve seen their country turned upside down over the past five decades. The party is led by a woman, Frauke Petry, whose positions on immigration are similar to Donald Trump’s.
Bostom said tensions have been building in Germany for years but came to a head with the reports of mass sexual assaults on women by Muslim migrants in Cologne and other cities on New Year’s Eve.
“And these sexual attacks are hardly confined to Germany,” he said. “It’s a broad phenomenon in Sweden, Belgium, France.”
Bostom sees more and more of what he calls “ordinary people being driven by ordinary concerns, primarily economics.”
“They are mostly just people who also want to retain their ethnic and religious identity,” he said. “They were always flummoxed by the E.U. effort to bring in so many Muslim migrants.”
He said the average German still wants to attend an Oktoberfest and enjoy a pork sausage with a beer, both considered taboo by the Muslim communities.
“They get annoyed by the sound of the Muslim call to prayer being broadcast over loudspeakers at 5 a.m.,” Bostom said. “There have been complaints (by Muslims) about Oktoberfest in some German cities just like we had complaints this year about Easter eggs in Dearborn (Michigan).”
Bostom cites the 2008 “Six Countries Survey” in which a group of sociologists polled Muslim attitudes in Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, France and Austria.
“They surveyed 9,000 Muslims, which is a huge sample, and 65 percent of them wanted the laws of their adopted country to be in accord with the Quran, so in other words they prefer Shariah,” Bostom said.
That brings us back to the issue of mosques and what is preached there.
Bostom points to the bizarre response by Belgium’s imams to the recent terror attack that killed 35 people at the Brussels airport and train station, wounding 200.
The imams refused to take part in a prayer of blessing for the departed and their families.
“And they’re right because if you look at Sura 98:6 of the Quran the infidels are referred to as the most vile creatures and condemned to hell fires,” Bostom said. “So of course the Belgium imams can’t pray for them and take part in the national remorse. From the Belgian imams’ perspective they’re doing the right thing for Islam, they’re not supposed to bless infidels that are blown up. As a matter of fact, the more blessed are those who martyred themselves in the process of blowing them up.”
One imam in Belgium decided to go against the majority and take part in the prayer, but his reasoning was not all that comforting. Not if you’re an infidel.
“His rationale is that there were a couple of Muslims killed in that explosion so therefore it was fine to give the blessing,” Bostom said. “You couldn’t make this stuff up. So here you have Belgian imams saying ‘look I’m sorry but we can’t bless these non-Muslims that were blown up, it’s in the Quran.’ Even if they wanted to do it they’re not supposed to do it because they’d be blessing people who are eternally condemned to hell.”
This is the type of teaching fed to Muslims in Europe’s mosques, he said. And European elites wonder why their Muslims aren’t assimilating.
“It’s so out of control. And that’s what is at the core of these kinds of phenomena,” Bostom said. “People are just saying ‘enough already, why are you here? Do this in Pakistan or Morocco or Turkey. Cut it out or go home. You’re disrupting our sleep, and then on top of that we have to worry about you murdering us or raping our daughters.’”
Bostom said the messages of the violent and nonviolent Muslim differ only in means. Both have the ultimate goal of overtaking Western civilization and making Islam reign supreme as a religion and a political system.
“And I think people are picking up on that now too,” he said.
Radical Islamic Mosques in America:
Pamela Geller, who was herself a target of an Islamic terror attack last year at a draw-Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, said the Obama administration has all but stopped the monitoring of U.S. mosques.
“For years, I have been calling on law enforcement and the FBI to pay closer attention to the mosques,” she told WND. “They present a clear and present danger.”
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing by the jihadist Tsarnaev brothers, who attended the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated Islamic Society of Boston, Geller said her organization issued an 18-point platform “in defense of freedom,” It called for the monitoring of mosques and their closure if jihad, hatred of America and Israel, or the violent Quranic verses were promoted.
But the Justice Department, under the influence of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, decided to go in the opposite direction and left the mosques to police themselves. All references to Islam and terrorism were scrubbed from FBI training manuals following a 2011 memo from Muslim organizations led by CAIR to then deputy national security advisor John Brennan. It was Brennan, who is now in charge of the CIA, who dutifully carried out the request.
“Hatred of the kuffar and the need to wage jihad and impose Shariah are basic, mainstream elements of Islam,” Geller said. “We’re kidding ourselves if we think they aren’t taught here in America.”
Geller points to the 2011 study by David Yerushalmi and Mordechai Kedar that concluded only 19 percent of U.S. mosques do not teach some form of violent jihad or Islamic supremacism.
John Guandolo, a former FBI counter-terrorism agent specializing in Quranic-inspired violence, said the U.S. is not doing anything to push back on the jihadi community “which is centered in the mosques which Islamic leaders in North America call the ‘axis of their movement.’”
If anything, the Obama administration is protecting the Islamic community whose stated objective is the destruction of all un-Islamic governments and replacing them with Islamic control under Shariah, he said.
After leaving the FBI Guandolo formed Understanding the Threat, an organization that teaches the tenets of Islam to law enforcement agencies.
“If we ‘monitor’ mosques now, who will do that? So few in law enforcement have been taught about Shariah, the Muslim Brotherhood jihadi network, etcetera,” he said. “UTT is the only organization in the nation doing it.”
Guandolo said he would start by reining in the record influx of immigrants, both legal and illegal, and then going after the Muslim Brotherhood operatives.
“If we begin with arresting all of the Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the U.S., shutting down their organizations, and all Muslim Brotherhood mosques, which is over 80 percent of them, that would be a good start,” he said.
He said this could be done under existing law.
“The underlying federal charge would fall under Title 18 – Conspiracy to Overthrow the Federal government,” he said.
Robert Spencer, author of the blog JihadWatch for the David Horowitz Freedom Center, said the jihadist attackers in Garland, San Bernardino and Boston, among others, were active in their mosques.
“Yet authorities seem to have no interest in what is being taught in those mosques,” he said.
Those found to be preaching violence should be closed down, he said.
“No part of the Constitution, including its protection of religious freedom, is some license to commit acts of treason, subversion and sedition,” Spencer told WND.
“A lot of the material about the studies has been taken offline,” he said, to protect the guilty.
Daniel Akbari, another former Muslim who grew up in Iran and became a top Shariah lawyer there before defecting to the United States, told WND he thought it would be “extreme” to take up the idea of the German AFD Party and close all mosques.
“I think it is both counterproductive and extreme to ban all mosques from their legitimate activities. There are, however, some legitimate concerns when it comes to political mosques,” he said. “Those mosques that encourage jihad, both slow and fast, should be banned. Security agents should be allowed to attend all worship centers, mosques, synagogues, churches, and if they have nothing to hide, they should not panic. Going after all mosques indiscriminately and regardless of their teachings is wrong per se.”
Christian said any idea coming out of Germany must receive heavy scrutiny but should not be rejected out of hand.
“We are always very sensitive about what is coming out of Germany because of its past but what about the Islamic threat and what is coming out of the Islamic world?” he says.
“Since 9/11 we have been going about this topic all in the wrong direction. We are looking into terrorism and terrorist organizations but we have our eyes on the wrong thing,” Christian adds. “There is one thing you will find in common with all the terrorists, all of them – they are foot soldiers and all of them have a long history of living lives of sin according to Islam. And all of them reach a point in their lives where they wanted to go to the mosque to find some spiritual answers and the mosque does nothing but provide them with the basic Islamic belief: Number one is to repent and change your ways. Number two, start working hard for your salvation. The more they go to mosque the more they find out that salvation does not come except by spilling their own blood for the cause of Islam.
“The fact is we are in a religious war whether we like it or not, whether we believe it or not.”
Saudi Arabia, Western Hypocrisy and the Rise of Islamic Terrorism
by, Mumin Salih | Islam Watch
After 9/11, America discovered that most of the terrorists were from Saudi Arabia but pretended not to notice anything. Instead of punishing the Saudis, America attacked Afghanistan and then Iraq.
Saudi Arabia has been bombing Yemen, the Arabs’ poorest nation, for nearly three months. Yemen’s only fault being its diverse population structure which worked well with them for centuries but the Saudis don’t like it anymore. Tens of thousands have been killed, injured or displaced in the country that didn’t have much to start with. The war on Yemen doesn’t even get reported by the Western media; you have to look hard and search to find something about it.
Saudi Arabia uses the Arab League as a political tool to herd the rest of the Arab states. It asked the Arab League to suspend Syria, a founding member of the league, in an unprecedented move in the history of the organisation. In a similar way, the Saudis use the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which they created, to herd the Islamic world.
It is common knowledge that nearly all terrorist Islamic organisations enjoyed the financial or political support of Saudi Arabia, or both, yet it has never been blamed for it.
The kingdom of Saudi Arabia has become a real monster. This article is about its rise and the rise modern terrorism, as both go hand in hand.
To me, most of this history is about distant memories. As a young Arab, I also believed in the myth of Arab nationalism, just like most of my generation did. Driven by patriotism, I carefully followed that era of the Arabs’ history, almost day by day, until all my fictional world collapsed like a house of cards while I watched with disbelief. Since its creation, Saudi Arabia has been a facility that produces hate, terror and ignorance on a massive scale and, at least to me, a representation of backwardness. I am afraid that my visits to the country in later years just confirmed that negative image.
History tends to forget about Arabia. It did so for thousands of years until the rise of Islam in the seventh century. Even with such a powerful stimulus, Arabia only managed to awake up for less than fifty years before it went again into its deep sleep. By the reign of Uthman, the third rightly guided caliph, the balance of power shifted to Damascus and then to Baghdad.
Ibn Saud meets Ibn Abdul Wahhab
For all the centuries since the rise of Islam, the desert of Arabia was available for occupation or colonisation but no one was interested. The only wars the beduins of Arabia had to fight were the wars against each other, and there were plenty of those wars. In the eighteenth century those wars were mainly between the Saudi tribe under the leadership of Mohammed Ibn Saud’s and their adversaries from other tribes. In his excellent book, The Hatred’s Kingdom, Dore Gold puts an estimate of nearly half a million people who were slaughtered as a result of the Saudi wars for dominance. An alliance with another religious warrior, Mohammed Ibn Abdul Wahhab proved to be vital to the success of Ibn Saud campaign. Abdul Wahhab was a strict Muslim warrior with no tolerance to those who disagreed with him. The agreement between the two men gave the political leadership to the Saudis and the religious leadership to the Wahhabis. The alliance is still a key to understanding how the country being run today.
The Third Saudi State – the Kingdom:
The Saudis succeeded twice in creating a state in the nineteenth century, in both cases the states were crushed soon afterwards. The first state was a nuisance to the Ottomans who asked Mohammed Ali of Egypt to deal with them, which he did and nearly annihilated the Saudis in 1816. The second state was defeated by rival tribes and the Saudis were forced to flee and seek asylum in Kuwait. Abdul Aziz was only twenty one years when he became the Saudi tribe’s leader in 1902. He made many military successes thanks to the support of the the ‘Brothers’ (the Ikhwan), which was a Wahhabi armed Islamic group. The British were also behind Abdul Aziz and provided him with much needed financial and military help to conquer the Al Rashid tribe and to occupy the Eastern province, which was then part of the Ottoman Empire. Abdul Aziz then turned his attention to the west and conquered Nejd and then Hijaz which was ruled by the pro British Hashemite tribe. For the sake of politics, having been pro British didn’t make much difference to the British government. In 1932, all present day Saudi Arabia was united under the leadership of Abdul Aziz, who proclaimed himself as the king of the desert kingdom which he named after his tribe. The British help to Abdul Aziz came at a time when Winston Churchill was already an influential figure in British politics and many years after he wrote his famous quote about Mohammedanism (1).
The Western role was not limited to helping the birth of the new kingdom but continued to be essential for its survival. The birth of the desert kingdom coincided with two important developments: the birth of the other Ikhwan group, the current Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt in 1928 and the discovery of oil ten years later. With wealth, thirst for power, religious zealous and unconditional Western support, the stage was perfectly set for the desert kingdom to become the main political player in the Middle East. Suddenly, history remembered Arabia and Abdul Aziz became a sought after king that world leaders seek to meet with. Indeed, towards the end of WWII, Both Churchill and FD Roosevelt met with the King in Egypt and aboard the USS Quincy respectively. Those meetings laid down the basis of the Western relations with the emerging Islamic power. We don’t know the details of those meetings but we know well that the two leaders were the most powerful men on earth and certainly more than capable to force their own terms on a tribe’s leader whom they helped to become a king. Well, it doesn’t look that way, unless their own terms happened to match the Saudi’s terms.
It is remarkable that the relationship between the West and Saudi Arabia has always been exceptionally good since the establishment of the kingdom. There was no time when the two sides were in disagreement or their relations were bad, even after 9/11. However, the role of Saudi Arabia as a major player in Middle Eastern politics suddenly came to a halt, not because of the wishes of the Western powers but against those wishes. Saudi Arabia was sidelined for nearly two decades because of another development in another Middle Eastern country – Egypt.
The Nasser years
Gamal Abdul Nasser came to power in Egypt through a military coup in 1952. Despite his socialist policies he was anti communist and started with a friendly relations with the Muslim Brotherhood. Nasser was a charismatic leader who inspired a generation of Arabs and revolutionaries of his time, like Castro and Nelson Mandela. He had big plans for his country including land reforms and an ambitious large scale industrialisation program that required the building of a massive dam across the river Nile. More importantly he was an Arab nationalist who opposed colonialism and supported independence movements in different parts of the world. The Muslim Brotherhood soon turned against him as it became clear to them that he was not the kind of leader who will be told what to do. After escaping an assassination attempt in 1954, Nasser cracked down on the Brotherhood movement and many of its members fled the country to enjoy the hospitality of Saudi Arabia and the West. They were encouraged to continue their activities; their journal and mouth piece “al Muslimoon” started to be published from Switzerland. The journal was edited by Sa’eed Ramadan, who was one of their leaders who lived in Switzerland where he raised his son Tariq Ramadan, who became another mouth piece for the movement.
As a co-founder of the non allied movement, Nasser opposed the post war American plans to force the Arab countries to join American linked alliances such as the CENTO or the Baghdad Alliance in the 1950s. The Baghdad Alliance was not a great success and America wasn’t amused. In1965, king Faisal of Saudi Arabia supported by the shah of Iran called upon the Islamic world to come together under a pro American Islamic alliance. Those were the days when the Shia of Iran were perfect Muslims but the sunni Egyptians were kuffar! Nasser opposed the idea of the Islamic alliance and the project never came to existence. However, the organisation of Islamic conference (OIC) was formed a few years later, which is still a very important political tool in the hands of Saudi Arabia.
The declared reasons for the Saudi opposition to Nasser were based, of course, on religion. They claimed that socialism was kufr, therefore, must be fought by all means. In reality, they didn’t like Nasser because his popularity and influence stood in their way. They plotted to assassinate the young president but those plots failed, however, getting rid of Nasser became an obsession to both the Saudis and the Brotherhood movement.
Nasser’s nationalist’s propaganda had some receptive ears in the closely guarded kingdom, which resulted in some high level defections. Army officers, fighter pilots, even some of the king’s brothers rebelled against him and defected to Egypt in 1962. The stability of the kingdom was further undermined by the ongoing power struggle between King Saud and his brother Faisal. The relations between the two brothers deteriorated further and the King was forced to abdicate in 1964 and sought refuge in Egypt, where he lived under the rule of the man he plotted to kill. For a while, Nasser appeared to be unstoppable but his increasing influence sounded an alarm to act urgently to have him removed. Indeed, soon it was Nasser’s regime which was undermined as the Egyptian leader became increasingly surrounded by corrupt aides and spies, even within his own family.
Faisal, the King of Terror
I believe that Faisal stands out among the Saudi leaders as the most evil of all. Although Islamic terrorism, in the sense and scale we know it today, was not known to the world in his life, it was his policies that laid down the firm foundations of Islamic terror. It is important to emphasise that terrorism didn’t come as a byproduct of his policies because it was the intended product.Faisal literally embodied the marriage between the Saudis and Wahhabism; his father was a Saudi and his mother was a Wahhabi of Al elsheikh tribe, the descendants of Mohammed Ibn Abdul Wahhab. Faisal had big plans in his mind and couldn’t wait for his brother to die so he conspired against him and had him removed while outside the country for medical treatment. King Saud was bad but not bad enough in Faisal’s standards. Faisal believed that for the kingdom to achieve its political potential, Nasser needed to go and he didn’t think his brother knew how to do it. Nasser considerably younger than Faisal; waiting for his natural death was not an option to the new king.
Faisal was very influential even before he became a king. In 1961, and in one of their worst blunders, the Egyptians sent a military help to the newly formed republican regime in Yemen. The Saudis seized the opportunity and provided the deposed monarch (called the Imam) with all the military and financial support required to drag the Egyptian army into a lengthy and costly guerrilla war. Interestingly, the deposed Imam, which the Saudis wanted to put back in power, had similar religious and ethnic background to the Houthis, which the Saudis have been fighting for three months to remove from power!
Faisal was behind establishing the Islamic University of Medina, which recruited leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood from all over the Muslim countries. The well known Pakistani scholar, Al Mawdudi, who was a big name in the brotherhood, was in charge of the university. The well funded university became a centre of extremism as its radical staff had free hands to teach, publish and promote Wahhabism. The Muslim libraries were flooded with books that sing the same tune, the Wahhabi tune. The previously unknown scholar Ibn Taymeyyia (1263-1328) started to become a household name.
Faisal was also behind establishing The Muslim World League, which was an even more remarkable project. The league started as a small and largely unknown organisation in the 1960s but within a decade it became a monstrous multi billion dollars global organisation. It is divided into some twenty divisions, each a massive organisation on its own right. Those divisions take care of all Muslims’ needs such as promoting Islamic education, Islamic finance, halal food and promoting the myth of scientific miracles in the Quran… you name it.
Although the above two institutions were created in 1961/1962 but both remained largely dormant for nearly a decade. The time was not right yet to release their full potential.
In a letter to president Johnson in 1966, king Faisal urged the American president to take action to bring an end to Nasser and his regime (2). The 1967 war was not an accidental war; it was a well planned trap to force Nasser to fight a war he cannot win, especially with a big chunk of his army fighting another war in Yemen. The war was a humiliating defeat to Nasser and the Saudi’s long awaited objective of getting rid of him seemed to have been accomplished. Indeed, in a live radio broadcast to the nation, Nasser accepted responsibility and announced his resignation. However, the Egyptians went immediately to the streets in a hysterical move to demand that he stays to rebuild the army, which he did.
Despite the humiliating defeat, Nasser was still very much the ‘leader’ in the Arab world whose approval was necessary on Middle Eastern issues. His international standing wasn’t affected either. It may have looked as if the Saudis were in for a long wait before they unleash their Islam to the Arabs and the world. It only ‘looked’ that way because in September 1970 Nasser died suddenly at the of age 52; with his death, the world entered a new dark phase – the Islamic phase (3).
Nasser died of heart attack, which was not surprising for a hard working diabetic man. The cause of death started to be questioned in recent years in the light of emerging evidence pointing at a planned assassination. If indeed that was the case, I would be surprised if the Saudis were not involved.
Sadat, the Believer President
Anwar Sadat succeeded Nasser and reversed all of his policies, which was a bizarre move from a politician who was responsible of those policies. As a result, Egypt became pro American and was reduced to only a tool in the hands of Saudi Arabia. The Islamists were released from jails and granted platforms in the press and influence in the the universities and Islamic institutions. The largest Arab nation, and once the most progressive, was radicalised within a decade. At last, all the Islamists’ prayers were answered.
Sadat briefly joined the Muslim Brotherhood as a young man. He joined the army as an officer and worked as a spy for the Nazi army in North Africa in WWII, which lead to his imprisonment by the British authorities in Egypt. He continued to be a fan of Hitler and wrote in his praise even after the 1952 military coup which brought him to government. Being in charge of the Yemen file in 1961, he was the one behind the ill fated decision of sending troops to help the military coup.
Sadat assumed the unofficial title of “the president who is a believer” despite drinking whisky in a show of westernisation to his western guests. He famously became one of the first Egyptians to develop the skin mark called zabibah. This is a dark mark that appears on the skin where the forehead comes in contact with the floor during sujud (prostration) part of prayers. It is a sign (or supposed to be a sign) of excessive prayers and its presence supposedly indicates that the person is a devout Muslim. Verse Q. 48:29 describes the believers as : “… their mark is on their faces from the trace of prostration…” (..سيماهم في وجوههم…) The zabiba was a common sight in Egypt in the 1980s and 1990s and then its appearance started to decline as ordinary Egyptians became aware of its true nature. In reality the zabiba is a sign that the person is a plain liar. It only appeared on Egyptian men (not women) and there is no report that Mohammed developed a zabiba, neither did any of his companions.
Sadat’s vulnerability didn’t go unnoticed by the Saudi Intelligence service and the CIA. It is believed that he was recruited in the 1960s and received regular income from the Saudis . He was killed in 1981 by the very Islamists he unleashed to the world.
With the fall of Egypt, the Saudis had access to treasures of resources like the well developed media and the human expertise to run them. They also had Al Azhar and its institutions on their side. Only ten years earlier, Al Azhar went through a massive modernisation program. Its university started to teach western sciences and, for the first time, to accept girls in its classes. Most of the staff of the new look university (and all of the students) were western looking. Girls were dressed just like in other universities – no hijab (today, they are still dressed like girls in other universities – all with hijab). All these reformations were reversed, thanks to the Saudi influence. With the members of the Muslim Brotherhood out of jail, the Saudis had everything they needed to start their global Islamisation program.
The Global Islamisation
Back in the 1970’s. King Faisal made use of the desire of some Europeans, especially the French, to form some kind of alliance with the Arabs and Muslims. The French were motivated by a feeling of being left out by the Americans and a desire to create a political entity independent from America. They expressed their readiness to open Europe to Muslims, welcome their culture and treat them preferentially. This is a fact not fiction or a conspiracy theory. Mohammed Hasanain Haikal is the most renowned Arab journalist with connections to officials and leaders around the world. His writings have always been taken seriously. He wrote that back in the 1970s he had a series of meetings with French officials who told him that France has already signed a treaty with Saudi Arabia to promote Islam and introduce it to Europe (4). Apparently Haikal mentioned this information in one of his books in the 1970s, long before other authors wrote about Eurabia. The European Arab Dialogue (EAD) was established to manage the new changes in the fabric of Europe.
In the 1970s there was a sharp rise in the price of oil, generating even more cash to the Saudis and increasing King Faisal’s spending power. The various organisations of the Muslim World League (MWL) embarked into a global Islamisation program that started in Europe but slowly spread in all directions. There was a sharp increase in the number of mosques and Islamic Centres as well as Islamic schools. The Western universities and academics proved to be easy preys to the well funded International Commission of Scientific Signs in the Quran and Sunna. This organisation cleverly exploited the vulnerability, and sometimes gullibility, of the Western academia to build an enormous mythical concept that helped to deceive converts and retain existing Muslims. They indirectly influenced top western universities by generous donations and funding new projects or sponsoring academic chairs. If you wonder how Tariq Ramadan was given a chair at Oxford university think of the influence of the MWL. Western academics were regularly invited to lavish scientific conferences that usually included a paper or two on the Muslims’ contribution in the field and perhaps some related “miracles” in the Quran or sunna.
We must keep in mind that an important part of the global Islamisation takes place within the kingdom. Over the years, tens of millions of non Saudis workers were subjected to extensive and regular brainwashing. The process takes place in schools, universities, work, mosques, shopping centres.. you name it. It is an efficient process that produces results; it is common for non practicing Muslims to return home fully Islamised after only one year work. Also many non Muslims convert to Islam as a result of this policy.
King Faisal was killed in 1975 but his legacy lived on. The Islamisation process received an extra boost after the Islamic revolution in Iran and its initial positive impact on the Arabs. The first large scale Islamic jihad was declared against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, of course with American support (and request). Young Arabs were brain washed, charged and recruited to fight what was perceived as an atheist invasion of a Muslim land. With eight Muslim republics already within the borders of the Soviet Union, the worry about Afghanistan was difficult to understand. The Mujahidon of Afghanistan were created by America and Saudi Arabia, staffed by the Muslim Brotherhood and glorified by the Western media. Most of the so called Arab Afghans were from the fully Islamised Egypt. The Mujahidon were terrorists just like Al Qaeda (which originated from them) but the western media ignored reporting their atrocities. Taliban was also created by Saudi Arabia and staffed by the graduates of the Saudi funded Islamic schools. The role of the Pakistani Intelligence was to manage and facilitate its formation. The fact that Taliban was recognized by only Saudi Arabia and two of its allies, Pakistan and the Emirates, says it all. In fact, nearly all of the Islamic terrorists organisations, including ISIS, were inspired by wahhabism and enjoyed the Saudi support and money, at least at some stage.
The Saudi funding of extremism and terror did not stop at government level. Islamic charities and Zakat money total to billions of dollars most of which is used in funding jihad in one place or the other. I happened to be in Saudi Arabia in 1994 and was amazed at the extensive effort that was put to make people donate to support the Bosnian war. Newspapers, radio, TV, mosques loud speakers, shopping centres.. it was impossible to avoid it. Nearly all zakat money paid by Saudis and Muslim employees working in the kingdom were used to fund the Bosnian jihad. The relevant WML organisations make sure that Muslims around the world do exactly the same as those in Saudi Arabia.
1. Winston Churchill wrote: “How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity.”.

The Rise, Fall and Re-Rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt
There is an internal war continuing in Egypt between the Free and Democratic government under President Sisi and the Muslim Brotherhood, that just refuses to die out…
On January 29, threats were issued on an Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood TV channel, warning of terror attacks against foreign nationals and interests in Egypt. Reading from a communique, the host on Rabea TV, which broadcasts from Turkey, gave a deadline for foreigners and foreign companies to leave Egypt, saying that after that deadline, “all their interests in the countries of the Middle East will be subject to harsh attacks with dire consequences.”

Rather than back away from his disputed assertions about “no-go zones” for non-Muslims in Europe, Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) has tripled down, first telling Fox News’ Neil Cavutothat America could soon have its own “no-go zones” and now, in a radio interview with the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch, warning of the coming Muslim “invasion” of the U.S.
Jindal repeated his comments about “no-go zones” in which Muslims are trying to impose Sharia law during the Monday interview, telling those who would do the same here, “If you don’t want to be an American, don’t come to America… If we’re not careful the same no-go zones you’re seeing now in Europe will come to America.”
“They want to use our freedoms to undermine that freedom in the first place,” Jindal said later of Muslim immigrants. “This is a place where you have freedom of self-determination, freedom of religious liberty, freedom of speech. This is an amazing place and we’re a majority Christian country. We’re a Judeo-Christian heritage, but we don’t discriminate against those that have no beliefs and or have different beliefs.”
Jindal said it’s “wonderful” that people “want to be Americans, they join our military, they start companies, they work to create a better community.” But what he said is unacceptable are those who want to “conquer” us. “If they want to come here and they want to set up their own culture and values that’s not immigration, that’s really invasion if you’re honest about it,” he said, saying we can expect more “lone wolf attacks” if that happens.
The potential 2016 presidential candidate predicted that the “politically correct crowd” would call him “racist” for those comments.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Muslim American Society are each registering their outrage over reportedly being designated terrorist organizations by the United Arab Emirates.
The two American groups were listed alongside the Islamic State group, Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood branches, as well as European Muslim groups in Italy, Germany, Sweden, Norway and Finland, Britain’s Cordoba Foundation and the Muslim Association of Britain. The full list, numbering 83 groups, was approved by the UAE cabinet Saturday and was posted by the official news agency WAM.
CAIR described its inclusion on the terrorism list as “shocking and bizarre” and called on the UAE government to remove them.
“There is absolutely no factual basis for the inclusion [of] CAIR and other American and European civil rights and advocacy groups on this list,” CAIR said in a statement Sunday.
“Like the rest of the mainstream institutions representing the American Muslim community, CAIR’s advocacy model is the antithesis of the narrative of violent extremists,” the group said. “We call on the United Arab Emirates cabinet to review this list and remove organizations such as CAIR, the Muslim American Society and other civil society organizations that peacefully promote civil and democratic rights and that oppose terrorism whenever it occurs, wherever it occurs and whoever carries it out.”
CAIR said it recently joined other Muslim-American leaders to release an open letter in Arabic “refuting the ideology of the terrorist group ISIS and urging its supporters to repent and ‘return to the religion of mercy.’”
The Muslim American Society said in its own statement that it was “shocked” to learn of its inclusion.
“The Muslim American Society is a religious community service organization that serves people in the United States. We have no dealings with the United Arab Emirates, and hence are perplexed by this news,” the group said. “Before proceeding any further, we would first like to verify the accuracy of the news reports and receive an official response from the United Arab Emirates regarding the reports. We would also like to seek the help of our government to address this issue.”
CAIR was named by federal prosecutors in 2007 along with about 300 others as an“unindicted co-conspirator” in a Hamas funding case connected with the Holy Land Foundation trial. Hamas has been designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. government since 2007. BuzzFeed noted that a federal judge later ruled that the government should not have included CAIR as a co-conspirator list, and CAIR was never charged with any crime.
CAIR, an Islamic advocacy group, was one of the organizations that sponsored the first Muslim prayer service held at the Washington National Cathedral on Friday.
The Associated Press noted that the UAE’s decision to include the Muslim Brotherhood on its terrorist group list followed similar terrorism designations for the Muslim Brotherhood by Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
Ms. Ali was once a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and now she is a freedom fighter of the highest order
by, Jennifer Kabbany | The College Fix | h/t Blazing CatFur
A video released Thursday of Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s recent speech at Yale University included a shocking revelation from the global women’s rights activist and outspoken critic of Islam: At one point in her young life she considered herself a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
She couched this admission in a much larger explanation of how and why radical Islam is oppressive and breeds violence, and to explain how she knows personally that it does.
She’s been accused of being angry at Islam. She’s been accused of not being an expert on Islam. She’s been accused of not understanding Islam.
But in her speech that the Yale Muslim Student Association didn’t want her to give, she delves into her Islamic credentials and exposes what she calls “the cancer” of Islam:
Why is my experience relevant? Is it because I was raised a Muslim? Is it because I was married off or had my genitals cut? No.
Is my experience relevant because my citizenship in Holland was revoked? No. Is it because I am traumatized, because I am angry, and I decided to blame my family and my past? No. I am not angry, I have been happy for a very long time and I am not blaming anyone.
I’ll tell you why (my life experience) is relevant to what we are seeing now. I learned from my early teachers of Islam that to be a Muslim was to testify that there is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger. I learned to pray five times a day. … To give alms to the poor and to attempt at least one trip to Mecca.
She goes on to say that the typical Muslim is peaceful and loving. But when she was 15, a different type of instructor came along who differed from the instructors of her youth. These new teachers created an “enlightened vanguard” of Muslim students who were taught that neglecting religious duty makes them an infidel, that their duty is to command right and forbid wrong. These teachers made students vigilantes, and she recalled one such “preacher teacher” in particular:
He preached like all the others, incessantly about hell. … He encouraged us to be relentless in enforcing the rules of Islam … for the stubborn who refused to obey and observe, we were to cut ties with them … he encouraged us to convert non-Muslims or cut ties with them. … Jihad – we were to wage Jihad for the sake of Islam. Martyrdom, the best thing to ever happen to us was to die while fighting for Allah. We were to strive for the establishment of Sharia law in our society and beyond … be suspicious of Christians if they refused to convert to Islam … and aspire to destroy the Jews, all Jews, not only the ones in Israel. The preacher teacher would rant against gays, they were to be hanged, and women were to know their place … their place was at home (and they were to) sacrifice everything, even life and the lives of their children for the sake of Allah. … We were supposed to cover ourselves from head to toe when running errands outside the home.
This process of indoctrination that I describe, that affected me, I considered myself once a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, it’s this the process of indoctrination that I have seen from up close and personal that makes my experience relevant. It’s this process of indoctrination that is overlooked. We focus on the Jihad, the violence, but we ignore the Dahoa, we ignore the years and years and years of preaching.
Dahoa in the West is protected under religious freedom, but Jihad is not. We have to rethink that. Dahoa leads to intolerance, and eventually violence. This preaching teacher … is the cancer … this preaching teacher is active in our communities here in the United States and in the U.K., and in Europe and the rest of the world. This preaching teacher is embedded in homes, streets, neighborhoods, schools, colleges and mosques and Muslim centers. … His goals are clear, and he’ll use any and all means necessary to indoctrinate young and impressionable minds with the creed of Jihad.
