IRONIC: Salman Abedi called his teacher ‘Islamophobic’ for condemning suicide bombings

Considering the widespread atrocities going on in the Muslim world, there should be an outcry from Muslims condemning jihad/martyrdom suicide bombings in the name of their religion, as well as condemnation for the religiously sanctioned beating of wives, killing of gays, apostates, etc. Instead, the outcry is against anyone who speaks the truth about these atrocities committed in the name of Islam. Legitimate critics are deemed “Islamophobic,” with the ultimate goal of subjugating truth-tellers and the West under the sharia.

Map of radical Islamic terrorist attacks in Europe.

Little wonder that the budding jihadist Salman Abedi advocated for the use of the widely accepted yet still regrettable propaganda term “Islamophobia.”

Salman Abedi, Manchester suicide bomber.

“TWISTED LOGIC Salman Abedi reported teacher at his secondary school for being an Islamophobe because he condemned suicide bombers”, by Tom Michael, The Sun, May 26, 2017:

Abedi was part of an Arabic-speaking “clique” during his time at the school, The Times reports.

He is believed to have been part of a group of teens that became upset when one of their teachers brought up the topic of suicide attacks.

The teacher “asked what they thought of someone who would strap on a bomb and blow people up”, according to a source quoted by the paper.

The source said the boys then went to their RE teacher and lodged a complaint, telling them it was “Islamophobic”.

The source added: “[Abedi] was a silly boy, not very serious. He was not smart enough to be a mastermind of anything like that.”

A spokesperson for Burnage Academy said yesterday: “We feel the pain that Manchester feels. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our fellow Mancunians against terrorism in all forms.”

Pals of the evil killer yesterday revealed his wild youth of booze and drug-taking – and how he was nicknamed “Dumbo” because of his big ears.

Pictures show him grinning in a bar with three student friends and on a beach in Libya, before he is thought to have been indoctrinated.

Pals described the brainy Manchester United fan as “very jolly”.

But over the past two years he is said to have changed completely after a number of trips to Libya to visit his family.

His parents are even said to have confiscated his passport amid fears he was being radicalised.

This week it was claimed Abedi called his family in Tripoli 15 ­minutes before the attack.

His mother Samia Tabbal, 50, and father Ramadan, 51, a security officer, were born in the Libyan capital.

They emigrated to London before moving to Manchester.

Manchester-born Abedi is believed to have regularly travelled to see his family, who moved back to Tripoli following the fall of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

One friend said: “He became silent and withdrawn after a trip a ­couple of years ago. Before then he was a happy-go-lucky kid and always did well in school.

“We used to party together. He loved being around his friends and wasn’t a strict Muslim at all.

“He even used to drink alcohol and loved smoking weed, he never mentioned religion.

“He was very jolly and happy. But over the past 18 months he became withdrawn and stopped hanging around with the people he used to.

“Before that he was so boisterous, always the joker.”

They added: “But as he started visiting Tripoli he was exposed to a lot of things. It’s enough to turn the ­purest person dark.

“And that’s what happened to a lot of young men. they were told it’s their religious obligation to step up and fight….

ISIS quotes Qur’an in call to attack non-Muslims during Ramadan

“During the message the Koran is quoted and suicide bombers were told to carry out plans now.”

Why isn’t the Islamic State stopped by all the peaceful passages of the Qur’an that non-Muslims who have never read the Qur’an assume dominate its pages?

“The new video, which Express.co.uk has chosen not to show, told ISIS fanatics to ‘wait and hide for them in houses, corners, roads’ and carry out murders.”

“‘Attack them in their homes’ ISIS in twisted call for bloodshed during Ramadan,” by Zoie O’Brien, Express, May 26, 2017:

ISLAMIC State (ISIS) has called for attacks in Britain during the holy month of Ramadan, which starts tonight, after the Manchester bombing which killed 22 and maimed dozens more.

A sickening message is being circulated asking for lone wolf supporters to murder innocent people, like suicide bomber Salman Abedi did at Manchester Arena, Express.co.uk can reveal.

Girls as young as eight were targeted when the 22-year-old carried a bomb into the foyer after an Ariana Grande concert.

Warped ISIS jihadis are now telling its brainwashed followers to carry out attacks over the holy month of Ramadan, which starts tonight….

A vile message spreading online said jihadis must “never leave one metre without making it hell on earth for disbelievers”.

Britain’s trauma hospitals have been told to prepare for an attack this Bank Holiday weekend, after the terror threat was raised to critical meaning an attack is “imminent”.

The army has been pulled in to defend the streets with police, and armed officers will patrol Britain’s trains for the first time.

Police are also on increased patrols, implementing anti-terror powers to carry out more stop and searches.

No specific threat has been identified, but intelligence sources believe Abedi was part of a wider ISIS network and had enough chemicals in his flat to build another explosive device.

The new video, which Express.co.uk has chosen not to show, told ISIS fanatics to “wait and hide for them in houses, corners, roads” and carry out murders.

Their aim was to make Britons “forget their luxurious life”.

The message finished: “God bless you.”

The message specifically called for attacks in the US, Russia and across Europe, including Britain.

Among the top targets for the attacks, according to the message are “soldiers”, “the princes” and “ministers”.

Deluded fanboys of ISIS leader Abu Bakr-al Baghdadi called Ramadan the “month of jihad”.

A 12-minute rambling video delivers the message in Arabic with an English translation.

Express.co.uk has chosen not to reveal the location of the message, which also talks about immigration.

It claims “the tyrants on the island” have closed the door on immigration so should have the “door of Jihad opened in their faces”.

The twisted ISIS message says attacks on innocent children like the one in Manchester are “beloved”.

During the message the Koran is quoted and suicide bombers were told to carry out plans now.

Terror cells are told to “terrorise” the west until the point neighbours turn on each other….

Profile of an ‘evil loser in life’

President Donald J. Trump during his campaign used the term “radical Islamic terrorism.” Upon becoming the President he has now visited three nations that are the birth places to the world’s three major religions: Saudi Arabia (Mecca – Islam), Israel (Jerusalem – Judaism and Bethlehem – Christianity) and Rome, Italy (seat of the Bishop of Rome and leader of the Catholic Church).

CBS News and the Manchester police have confirmed that the man who blew himself up at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, was 23-year-old Salman Abedi, a Libyan Muslim, who was known to British authorities prior to the attack.

During his speech in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, President Trump rejected the basic tenant of Islam – martyrdom. It is prophetic that while in Bethlehem, the birth place of Jesus Christ, standing next to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, President Trump said:

So many young, beautiful innocent people – living and enjoying their lives – murdered by evil losers in life.  I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term. I will call them losers from now on – because that is what they are – losers.

This is what I’ve spent these last few days talking about during my trip oversees – our society can have no tolerance for this continuation of bloodshed, we cannot stand a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent citizens.

The terrorists and extremists, and those who give them aid and comfort, must be driven out from our society forever. This wicked ideology must be obliterated, and innocent life must be protected.  All civilized nations must join together to protect human life and the sacred right of our citizens to live in safety and peace.

What is prophetic is that the Palestinian authority pays terrorists, and their families $140 million a year via a Palestinian Authority Martyrs Fund. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has lashed out at the Palestinians for paying families of suicide bombers.

President Trump’s first major speech overseas was in the heart of Islam, Saudi Arabia. While many will analyse the speech from various angles, I believe the most important sentence in the speech made by the President was:

If you choose the path of terror, your life will be empty, your life will be brief, and your soul will be condemned.

This one sentence denies the most basic tenant of Islam – martyrdom.

The followers of Mohammed believe that they must die in the ongoing holy war against the non-believers. The Quran (4:74) reads:

“Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward.”

The only guaranteed way for a follower of Mohammed to enter paradise is to fight and die in the way of Allah – martyrdom.

President Trump understands this. The question is do other world leaders?

Why the British Terror Threat Will Not Improve Soon

Time for an Independent Kurdistan as a buffer against Iran

Syrian Kurdish woman YPJ fighter

An independent Kurdistan would be a bulwark for the US and ally Israel as we, chaver Sherkoh Abbas, President of the Kurdish National Assembly of Syria (KURDNAS) and Former Reagan National Security Council senior official , Prof.Norman Bailey of the University of Haifa in Istael have espoused.

A start to that would be the establishment of a US controlled safe zones in the predominately Kurdish northeastern Syria and Russian one in the Northwestern enclave of Afrin. That was proposed by David Keleti and this writer in a March 2017 Israel Behind the News Interview.

That would be enabled by the existing tactical air fields that US coalition air units use in northeast Syria to fly missions in support of the 50,000 YPG Kurdish led Syrian Democratic Force now being armed by the US for the push to retake Raqqa, the administrative capital of the Islamic State.

Kurdistan in northeastern Syria could assist in covert operations of Kurdish resistance forces in adjacent northwestern Iran in the Zagros mountains.it could protect the back door into the predominate Yazidi area of Sinjar in adjacent Iraq.

If the Kurdish safe zone could be extended to the Mediterranean coast in Syria it would facilitate shipment of both Syrian and Iraqi Kurdistan produced oil for export to Israel and the West via a network of pipelines.

A free Kurdistan could also develop into a commercial agricultural bread basket for the region.

We bet the estimated 300,000 Israelis of Jewish Kurdish legacy like MK Mickey Levy would kvell about an automous independent Kurdistan.

Kurdistan would serve as buffer against Iran

In order to assist the creation of a Shia Crescent from the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea, the question remains: Is Iran working to thwart the creation of an independent Kurdistan? Are they working together with Syria in order to further this strategic goal? According to an Iraqi source, Ira…

HALF A MILLION children recruited by ISIS

What is so disturbing is that this will be left for our children to deal with — and the left in the media, academia and culture have thoroughly disarmed them  in the information battle-space. They are sheep to slaughter.

Half a million. And there will be millions more.

TERROR TOTS: HORROR AS EXPERTS REVEAL UP TO HALF A MILLION CHILDREN RECRUITED BY ISIS

THE ISLAMIC STATE HAS MANAGED TO RADICALISE UP TO HALF A MILLION CHILDREN, EXPERTS HAVE DISCLOSED IN A SHOCKING REVELATION OVER THE SCALE OF THE TERROR THREAT. By Zoie O’Brien, May 13, 2017:

Terror experts, psychologists and analysts have been scrambled to assess how the threat from hundreds of thousands of children who served ISIS can be countered.The new find poses a deadly threat to countries such as France, the UK and the USA, all of which have been threatened with mass bloodshed on the streets.Anne Speckhard, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University, has travelled to Iraq to help deal with the crisis facing the country.The expert from The International Center for the Study of Violent Extremism (ICSVE) has also come face to face with the kids of the caliphate.She told Express.co.uk: “There was a lot of discussion about the numbers of youth involved – 250K to 500K.“ISIS banned the books from schools and replaced with their own curriculum and materials encouraging hatred and brutality, many of which were shown to us on a display.

“There is anger and concern about how to regroup in the face of ISIS destruction and worry that the ideology can continue to live in the hearts and minds of Sunnis who lived under ISIS and re-emerge.”

ISIS child beheads captive after being trained in horror terror camps.

Jihadis infiltrated classrooms, destroyed libraries and forced teachers to deliver a programme of hate in areas overtaken by ISIS.The Iraqi Prime Minister opened the Education in the Post-Daesh Iraq conference in April, where experts were told of the true extent of the problem.Before the invasions of towns in Iraq, a group called the ISIS ‘Emni’ planted radical preachers to prepare the ground.They learnt the grievances of local people and played on them to recruit families.

CALIPHATE KIDS: As many as 500,000 children may have been radicalised.

Children of the Islamic State: Teachers forced to throw out curriculum and preach for ISIS

The elite ‘Emni’ – made up of former Iraqi Baathists who served under Sadaam – is believed to be linked to terror attacks in Paris, Brussels and Tunisia.The programmes under which children were indoctrinated were extremely successful.Testimony from young soldiers who served ISIS has revealed they lived to serve the older jihadis who sent boys as young as five to their deaths.

Professor Speckhard said: “Some of the youth were actually recruited into the Cubs of the Caliphate and some were taught to behead.“Likewise some teachers were forced to teach in ISIS schools and what to do with them.In a series of interviews with Daesh jihadis, Professor Speckhard, along with Professor Ahmet Yayla, a former counter terror police chief, established how young boys are recruited.

Their book, entitled ‘ISIS Defectors: Inside Stories of the Terrorist Caliphate’, revealed how ISIS set out to radicalise children in an attempt to bolster its own ranks in 2015.

Within months it had hundreds on its books.

Professor Speckhard said: “The child who told us about kids being tricked and put in suicide vehicles even not knowing they were going to be exploded, an ISIS emir verified that kids are sent both in vehicles and wearing vests.“They are so brainwashed that they cry when they are taken off the list.”One boy named Ibn Omar revealed how training camps and huge knives were named after al-Qaeda leaders.He told the professors: “No. If you don’t join ad-Dawlah and pledge your loyalty to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi you are an in infidel.“Some of the local [ISIS] fighters said they now knew that their father was an in del and that as soon as they could, they would take leave and would go kill him.”

James Comey: Not Just Incompetent, But He Placed American Lives at Risk

Also in 2015, two terrorists attempted to kill attendees at an event in Garland, TX hosted by anti-Jihad activist Pamela Geller, at which participants were drawing images of Muhammad, which is considered a sacrilege by Muslims. The terrorists had enough ammunition to kill dozens of people and they did wound one security guard before being shot dead. But the attack could have been prevented because not only did the FBI know the terrorists were planning something but, as 60 Minutes reported, they had an undercover agent working with them who sent an encouraging text to the terrorists three weeks prior to the attack: “Tear up Texas.”

That’s bad enough, but 60 Minutes also revealed that this agent was actually at the location of the terror attack. He was in a car behind the car containing the terrorists but when they opened fire on a security guard, his reaction was to photograph them. He did not intervene. Why not? And why weren’t more FBI agents placed at the event to stop the attack? Or prevent it before it even started? Why did they not even alert Pamela Geller, the organizer of the event? As Geller states, “It’s hard to escape the conclusion that the Obama FBI wanted me and the other speakers at the even dead.” This was a display of incredible incompetence, but neither the FBI nor Comey have ever been forced to explain their actions.

Why did they not even alert Pamela Geller, the organizer of the event? Indeed. Comey should have been fired then.

garland texas isis attack.jpgJAMES COMEY: NOT JUST INCOMPETENT BUT HE PLACED AMERICAN LIVES AT RISK

By Steve Baldwin, American Spectator, May 12, 2017:

A record of political correctness in the war on terror.

FBI Director James Comey was incompetent and as FBI Director, his policies placed the lives of American citizens at risk. An in-depth look at his record as FBI Director reveals an incredible naivety toward the Islamic terror threat and a willingness to appease radical Muslims at the expense of protesting Americans. This piece will not address Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal or his failure to investigate the obvious illegal pay-for play schemes concocted by the Clinton Foundation.

Nor will it look at his failure to prosecute anyone associated with the IRS’s effort to silence hundreds of political groups during Obama’s reelection or his refusal to come clean about his knowledge of how numerous Americans were “unmasked” for having the audacity of associating with Donald Trump. No, this is just a peek at how the FBI under Comey handled the Islamic terrorist threat. Thanks to a lazy media, the popular image most Americans have of Comey is that he’s a superb administrator, a straight shooting Boy Scout and an Eliot Ness kind of guy who aggressively puts all the bad guys away.

In 2011, in one of the most incredible acts of stupidity ever by the FBI, the agency agreed to purge its counter-terrorism documents of terms, concepts, and statements that a number of Islamic pressure groups objected to. The government watchdog group, Judicial Watch, forced the FBI to release documents about this purge which revealed that the FBI systematically purged some 900 pages and 392 presentations deemed “offensive” to Muslims. This occurred under the previous FBI director Robert Mueller as a result of meeting with Islamic pressure groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), both named in 2007 as unindicted co-conspirators in a case involving raising funds for Islamic terrorists.

This purge crippled the FBI’s ability to track terrorists and many believe the loss of this intelligence caused the FBI to miss clues that could have prevented future terrorist attacks. Indeed, Judicial Watch actually called the purge “part of a broader Islamist ‘influence operation’ aimed at our government and Constitution.”

The purged documents including records linking the Muslim Brotherhood to terrorism, probably because the Obama Administration had, by this time, appointed a number of MB sympathizers to key positions and was quietly supporting Muslim Brotherhood political movements in a number of countries such as Egypt and Libya. The purge also deleted all usage of the term “radical Islam,” and any statement that defined “Jihad” as “Holy War,” even though that’s the definition used by Islamic terrorists. Strangely, the FBI also destroyed all documents linking al Qaeda to the 1993 World Trade Center and the 1996 Khobar Towers bombings, despite the fact these are important events in the terrorist timeline.

Judicial Watch also revealed that the purge also “removed references to mosques specifically as a radicalization incubator,” even though every intelligence service in the world knows that mosques are regularly used to plan and organize terror attacks. FBI agents were even told what words they could not use in writing reports on terror threats. Banned words included sharia, jihad, Muslim, Islam, Muslim Brotherhood, enemy, Hamas, Hezbollah and al Qaeda. The FBI was basically more concerned about the feelings of radical Muslims than the security of American citizens.

While the file purging occurred under Bureau head Robert Mueller two years before Comey took the helm, there is no evidence Comey made any effort to restore these files and all evidence indicates that he continued to use this politically correct mindset as he investigated the Jihadist threat in the U.S.A. And it soon became a heavy price to pay.

Indeed, one of the FBI documents obtained by JW titled “Guiding Principles: Touchstone Document on Training” stated that “mere association with organizations that demonstrate both legitimate (advocacy) and illicit (violent extremism) objectives should not automatically result in a determination that the associated individual is acting in furtherance of the organization’s illicit objective(s).”

In other words, the FBI was instructing its agents that if a person is found to be involved with a group that advocates “violent extremism,” they are not to assume the person is involved with violent extremism! This give-the-benefit-of-the-doubt-to-potential-terrorists mindset is what may have caused the FBI to ignore clues that could have stopped the Ft. Hood, Orlando, San Bernardino, and other terrorist attacks even though it had prior knowledge about the Islamic extremist connections of those who carried out those attacks.

Again, while this FBI document was produced pre-Comey, it is clear from the FBI’s performance that he never disavowed the “Guiding Principles” mindset and that they continued to follow the philosophy of appeasing Muslim pressure groups even at the expense of protecting Americans.

Indeed, Comey never broke with any of Director Mueller’s appeasement policies. For example, the FBI under Comey continue to maintain friendly ties with radical Islamic groups, namely the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the group mentioned earlier as a co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial. Even though the Justice Department banned the FBI from associating with CAIR, a number of FBI Field offices continued friendly relations with this extremist group. Ultimately, the Justice Department’s Inspector General (IG) investigated the FBI and its final report exposed the Bureau’s friendly interactions with CAIR at its Los Angeles, Chicago, New Haven and Philadelphia field offices.

Congressman Frank Wolf wrote, “Today, the Department’s Inspector General… confirms the blatant disregard of Bureau policy as well as multiple enacted Commerce-Justice-Science Appropriations reports with respect to interactions by the FBI with CAIR.” The DOJ IG report even revealed that the director of the Los Angeles FBI office urged his staff to disregard this policy: “Please instruct your folks at this time that they are not to abide by the [directive to have no contact with CAIR] but that their direction in regards to CAIR will come from the LA field office front office.” While this occurred at the very beginning of Comey’s term, there is no evidence that Comey did anything to discourage these contacts.

And it gets worse. Judicial Watch reported that the FBI in 2015 created an interactive website called “Don’t be a Puppet,” for the purpose of preventing “susceptible youth from getting recruited online by terrorists,” but they were pressured by Islamic groups to omit all mention of Islamic terrorism. Comey caved and the site was changed to feature white supremacists, militia groups, religious extremists and so on, even though terrorist acts by such groups are quite rare while Islamic terrorists have committed tens of thousands of terror acts worldwide since 9/11. The only time the website mentions Islam is when it explains that Islamic terrorist groups such as ISIS “do not represent mainstream Islam.”

But the idea that obscure militias and white supremacists pose a threat to the national security in the same way as do Islamic terrorists happens to be a favorite theme of the loony left and Comey seems to have bought into this fantasy. Indeed, in 2015, Comey’s g-men stormed into a meeting of the Republic of Texas, a Texan secessionist movement. At the time of the raid, reported WorldNetDaily, the group “was debating issues of currency, international relations and celebrating the birthday” of one of their members. Sounds threatening. None of these guys were wanted terrorists or had ever engaged in any activity remotely threatening national security. Nevertheless, they were all fingerprinted and had their cell phones seized. If Comey’s FBI is really spending time, money and effort investigating and harassing harmless groups like the Republic of Texas, no wonder the agency missed numerous clues on many high profile Islamic terrorist cases under Comey’s watch. Clearly, they are allocating its resources based on political correctness, not reality.

Before Comey became director, the FBI initiated a policy that actually banned the FBI from conducting surveillance of mosques and instructed agents to “remove their shoes” before entering a mosque (what if they have to chase a suspect?), wait for the worship service to be over before entering, and not allow police dogs to sniff for explosives. The rules do not appear to apply to investigations involving Christian churches. Nor did Comey make any effort to change this policy even though Mosques have repeatedly been implicated in Islamic terror plots worldwide.

Moreover, Comey continued Director Mueller’s practice of heavily recruiting Muslims to be agents with apparently very little vetting. Indeed, the FBI placed recruitment ads in the publications of extremist Islamic groups with the slogan “Today’s FBI. It’s for You.” And it paid off. Indeed, WorldNetDaily broke a story that a Muslim agent working for the Los Angeles FBI field office “tipped off a Muslim suspect under investigation for terrorism about FBI surveillance.”

In years past, such a violation would result in not just the agent being fired, but also being prosecuted. However, this agent was allowed to remain with the FBI with only a reprimand! Moreover, other Muslim FBI agents have been exposed for assisting radical Islamic groups but the only consequence has been a transfer to another FBI office. Congressional investigators should review the FBI’s hiring and vetting polices when it comes to Muslims, because it’s likely Comey may have hired a slew of agents who are more loyal to the Jihad than to the U.S.A. Again, there’s no evidence that Comey did anything to change or reform aggressive hiring policies which actually targeted radical Muslims, not moderates.

But let’s take a look at how Comey’s FBI actually handled a few of the more well known domestic terror cases during his tenure.

In 2015, an Islamic couple from Pakistan murdered 14 people and injured 22 others at an after work Christmas party in San Bernardino. The terrorist couple, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, spent time in Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and used bomb technology commonly used by al Qaeda. The two jihadists were linked to Tablighi Jamaat, an Islamic extremist sect with a history of supporting terrorism. However, all records related to this particular group were purged from the National Targeting Center database, according to former DHS counter-terror analyst Philip Haney, who stated that “this Administration is more concerned about the civil rights and civil liberties of foreign Islamic groups and foreign nationals than securing the freedom and security of the American public.” NTC’s data is shared with the FBI. Had Comey made any effort to restore these valuable counter-terrorism files, there’s a chance the Bureau could have prevented this attack. But again, there is no record of any push-back by Director Comey to recover counter-terrorism files. Too bad, it would have saved American lives.

Also in 2015, two terrorists attempted to kill attendees at an event in Garland, TX hosted by anti-Jihad activist Pamela Geller, at which participants were drawing images of Muhammad, which is considered a sacrilege by Muslims. The terrorists had enough ammunition to kill dozens of people and they did wound one security guard before being shot dead. But the attack could have been prevented because not only did the FBI know the terrorists were planning something but, as 60 Minutes reported, they had an undercover agent working with them who sent an encouraging text to the terrorists three weeks prior to the attack: “Tear up Texas.”

That’s bad enough, but 60 Minutes also revealed that this agent was actually at the location of the terror attack. He was in a car behind the car containing the terrorists but when they opened fire on a security guard, his reaction was to photograph them. He did not intervene. Why not? And why weren’t more FBI agents placed at the event to stop the attack? Or prevent it before it even started? Why did they not even alert Pamela Geller, the organizer of the event? As Geller states, “It’s hard to escape the conclusion that the Obama FBI wanted me and the other speakers at the even dead.” This was a display of incredible incompetence, but neither the FBI nor Comey have ever been forced to explain their actions.

When Ahmad Kan Rahami set off powerful bombs in Manhattan in 2016, injuring 31 people, it was reported by the New York Times that Rahami’s father had informed the FBI two years previously that “he feared his son was a terrorist.” The FBI investigated and cleared him, even though, as the Times reports, “they never interviewed Mr. Rahami.” Nor did they adequately scrutinize the suspicious trips Rahami made overseas to both Pakistan and Quetta. It is likely those trips were to receive bomb-making training. Why would the FBI not even question him? Is this how the FBI “clears” potential terrorists under James Comey?

In 2016, Omar Mateen, murdered 49 people and injured 53 at an Orlando nightclub. The FBI twice investigated Mateen; one investigation was initiated because Mateen was in contact with a suicide bomber; the 2nd one began because he made threatening comments to co-workers. Both investigations were closed; the later one due to FBI’s belief that Mateen was making terrorist threats only as a reaction to “being marginalized because of his Muslim Faith.”

Yes, the FBI believed that the problem was not Mateen, but rather his “racist” co-workers. The FBI also knew Mateen had traveled to Saudi Arabia in 2011 and that his father posted pro-Taliban videos online. Finally, a gun store owner called the FBI shortly before the attack to report Mateen’s effort to buy body armor and ammunition. But the FBI did nothing. Due to political correctness, the FBI could not or would not connect the dots and 49 people paid the price. Moreover, Mateen attended a radical mosque in Orlando, but since Comey’s FBI refused to investigate terror-supporting mosques, they cut themselves off from finding out any additional information about Mateen. Incredibly, in response to this murderous attack, FBI special agent Ron Hopper announced that “civil rights violations are a priority for the FBI,” referring not to the victims of Mateen, but to anyone who might say anything negative about Muslims. This is not a joke.

Lastly, the FBI under Comey has ignored a large network of domestic terrorist training compounds. In his book, Twilight in America, author and researcher Martin Mawyer documents the existence of at least two dozen compounds in rural areas operated by a terror group known as “Muslims of America (MOA).” MOA’s Islamic name is “Jamaat ul-Fuqra” and its leader is Sheikh Mubarik Ali Shah Gilani, a radical jihadist cleric who mentored the Christmas Day bomber and many other terrorists. He has declared jihad on America and his compounds are clearly involved with training jihadists. Indeed, MOE members were involved with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Before Obama came to power, the FBI prepared a report about these Islamic warriors: “MOA members have participated in ten murders; one disappearance; three fire bombings and one attempted firebombing and two explosive bombings with one attempted bombing…. the leadership of the MOA extols members to pursue a policy of jihad or holy war against individuals or groups it considers enemies of Islam which Include the U.S. Government.…members of the MOA are encouraged to travel to Pakistan to receive religious and military/terrorist training from Sheikh Gilani.”

 There is little doubt the FBI possesses enough information about MOA’s activities to obtain court warrants to search their compounds or wiretap its phones, but Mawyer says that his sources tell him “the FBI under Comey showed no interest in investigating these compounds.” Mawyer says while a few field agents understand what these camps are really all about, many in the FBI “Think they are just Muslims who want to be left alone.” Sure. Meanwhile, these compounds continue training jihadists unimpeded. Mawyer has spent twenty years researching MOA and its network of compounds but Comey wouldn’t know him from Adam. In any case, the latest chatter from MOA operatives is a fear that Trump will actually close down their compounds. They will miss Comey dearly.

While Comey made quite a media splash informing Americans that the FBI is investigating ISIS-related terrorists in all 50 states, one now has to wonder how many of these investigations are just for show? Or how many cases will the FBI drop for fear of offending Muslims?

If Congress would spend more time investigating the FBI’s competency, rather than phony Russian conspiracy theories, perhaps someday we will have an FBI that’s not driven by political correctness. In the age of terrorism, we need a FBI Director who is fearless and aggressive in investigating Islamic terrorism. Comey has bungled many high profile Islamic terror cases under his watch. Trump did the right thing by firing him and he needs to now hire someone who will ignore political correctness and do what is necessary to keep America safe from Islamic terrorism.

FBI role in ISIS attack in Garland, TX is major scandal on Comey’s watch

James Comey has been fired, and not a moment too soon, but questions linger. 60 Minutes ran a feature recently about the FBI’s curious role in the May 2015 Garland jihad attack at a free speech event co-organized by Pamela Geller and me. It was, predictably enough, viciously biased, sloppy, and incomplete, but it was nonetheless illuminating in raising a hard and unanswerable question: did the FBI want Pamela Geller and me dead?

Despite the fact that the jihad attack took place at our event, neither Geller nor I appear, except in one still photo, in the 60 Minutes piece. All they say is that “a self-described free speech advocate named Pamela Geller was holding a provocative contest.”

The contempt fairly leapt from the screen. “A self-described free speech advocate”? Did 60 Minutes mean that Pamela Geller didn’t have the requisite degree in free speech advocacy? Or that she wasn’t really a free speech advocate? What they really mean, of course, is that she is not on the Left, and so cannot be celebrated as a free speech advocate the way the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, who were all Leftists, can be.

60 Minutes also gave a nod to Sharia blasphemy laws by describing the contest as “provocative.” It was an art exhibit, featuring historical and modern images of Muhammad, some created by Muslims. It was only provocative to Muslims who believe in Islam’s death penalty for blasphemy (and brainwashed dhimmis). Was 60 Minutes implying endorsement of that death penalty? Why, yes. If our event was provocative, the shooters were justifiably provoked.

Meanwhile, CBS gave a lot of space to Usama Shami, the imam of the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix, from which the jihadis came, allowing him to exonerate the mosque of any responsibility for “radicalizing” the jihad attackers. 60 Minutes didn’t mention what Simpson’s friend Courtney Lonergan told the Arizona Republic:

“Simpson would never waver from the teachings he picked up in the mosque and elsewhere….He was one of those guys who would sleep at the mosque. The fact that he felt personally insulted by somebody drawing a picture had to come from the ideological rhetoric coming out of the mosque.”

60 Minutes also doesn’t challenge Shami on his lies right after the attack, when he said that the jihadis were not regular members of the mosque.

Despite all the predictable politically correct whitewashing and appeasement, CBS did a good job of highlighting a curious and still unexplained aspect of the attack: the FBI clearly knew the attack was coming (although it didn’t bother to inform us or our security team), as the FBI agent was right there, following behind the jihadis, whom he had encouraged to “tear up Texas.” But even though they knew the attack was coming, they didn’t have a team in place to stop the jihadis. They had one man there, and one man only. The jihadis were not stopped by FBI agents, but by our own security team. If the jihadis had gotten through our team, they would have killed Pamela Geller and me, and many others. (They would no doubt have loved to kill Geert Wilders, but he left before they arrived.)

The Daily Beast wrote in August 2016 about how this undercover FBI agent encouraged the jihadis. The Beast’s Katie Zavadski wrote:

“Days before an ISIS sympathizer attacked a cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, he received a text from an undercover FBI agent. ‘Tear up Texas,’ the agent messaged Elton Simpson days before he opened fire at the Draw Muhammad event, according to an affidavit (pdf) filed in federal court Thursday.”

This was not entrapment. Simpson and Soofi were determined jihadis who had scouted out other targets. Simpson, along with Soofi and Abdul Malik Abdul Kareem, who supplied weapons to the pair and helped them train, sought information about pipe bombs and plotted to attack the Super Bowl, and planned to go to Syria to join the Islamic State (ISIS), long before anyone told him to “tear up Texas.”

But what was the FBI’s game in telling them to do that? Why didn’t they have a phalanx of agents in place, ready to stop the attack? Or did they want the attack to succeed, so that Barack Obama’s vow that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam” would be vividly illustrated, and intimidate any other Americans who might be contemplating defending the freedom of speech into silence?

We twice asked the FBI for an investigation into this matter. They ignored us. Of course. After all, it isn’t as if this happened to someone important, like Linda Sarsour.

James Comey

James Comey

“10 Major FBI Scandals on Comey’s Watch,” Grabien News, May 9, 2017 (thanks to the Geller Report):

News just broke that President Trump is dismissing the director of the FBI, James Comey.

Comey will inevitably be remembered for the controversial role he played in the 2016 presidential election, where his agency conducted surveillance of the Trump campaign as well as investigated the Clinton camp for mishandling classified materials, giving both sides arguments for how the FBI ultimately swayed the vote.

But even before the 2016 campaign, the FBI endured a number of humiliations under Comey’s tenure. Most damning were revelations that the FBI was generally aware of almost every terrorist who successfully struck America over the last eight years.

Here are 10 of Comey’s biggest embarrassments at the FBI:

1. Before he bombed the Boston Marathon, the FBI interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev but let him go. Russia sent the Obama Administration a second warning, but the FBI opted against investigating him again….

3. The FBI had possession of emails sent by Nidal Hasan saying he wanted to kill his fellow soldiers to protect the Taliban — but didn’t intervene, leading many critics to argue the tragedy that resulted in the death of 31 [sic; actually 13] Americans at Fort Hood could have been prevented.

4. During the Obama Administration, the FBI claimed that two private jets were being used primarily for counterterrorism, when in fact they were mostly being used for Eric Holder and Robert Mueller’s business and personal travel….

8. The father of the radical Islamist who detonated a backpack bomb in New York City in 2016 alerted the FBI to his son’s radicalization. The FBI, however, cleared Ahmad Khan Rahami after a brief interview.

9. The FBI also investigated the terrorist who killed 49 people and wounded 53 more at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Fla. Despite a more than 10-month investigation of Omar Mateen — during which Mateen admitting lying to agents — the FBI opted against pressing further and closed its case.

10. CBS recently reported that when two terrorists sought to kill Americans attending the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, the FBI not only had an understanding an attack was coming, but actually had an undercover agent traveling with the Islamists, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi. The FBI has refused to comment on why the agent on the scene did not intervene during the attack.

ISIS justifies killing women and children by invoking Muhammad’s example

This ain’t Karen Armstrong’s Muhammad, this is the real thing: killing women and children is justified in a hadith in which Muhammad waves away those who object. “It is reported on the authority of Sa’b b. Jaththama that the Prophet of Allah (may peace be upon him), when asked about the women and children of the polytheists being killed during the night raid, said: They are from them.” (Sahih Muslim 4321)

“Narrated Atiyyah al-Qurazi: I was among the captives of Banu Qurayza. They (the Companions) examined us, and those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed. I was among those who had not grown hair. (Sunan Abu Dawood 38:4390) Pubescent boys were thus killed, whether they had been combatants or not.

“Isis defends killing women and children as terror group loses territory and troops,” by Lizzie Dearden, Independent, May 6, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Isis has launched an “extremely defensive” propaganda effort to defend its slaughter of women and children as it struggles to retain territory, troops and attention.

The latest edition of the terrorist group’s Rumiyah magazine celebrated bombings that killed at least 45 people marking Palm Sunday at Coptic churches in Egypt.

Hundreds of people attended the victims’ funerals, with Egyptians of all religions uniting to condemn the bloodshed and the government threatening a new crackdown….

Opponents of Isis, including rival terrorist groups, have cited its killing of women and children – particularly Muslims – in indiscriminate terror attacks as proof of their takfir (disbelief).Christians are also afforded protection under sharia as protected “dhimma”, and were required to pay a special tax under caliphates in the Islamic Golden Age.

In an “interview” in Rumiyah, the leader of Isis’s faction in Egypt admitted that the “prevailing trend in many people’s reactions is that of denunciation, as well as disassociation … and of offering condolences”.

But in a lengthy propaganda article, Isis sought to justify its actions by claiming that “belligerent” Christians in Egypt deserve no protection.

It said it was “permissible” to murder all men and take women, children, the elderly and ill as slaves.

“With regards to those of the non-combatant women and children from among the belligerent Christians who are killed unintentionally, their blood is waste,” the article continued.

It claimed that the murder of women and children in indiscriminate terror attacks or bombardment was also allowed, citing Mohamed’s use of catapults in a medieval city siege….

ISIS using Craigslist to lure non-Muslims to be slaughtered

Here’s a new tool of ISIS to lure in victims — the jihadists are going Craigslist.

Specifically, ISIS sent out a message in its latest magazine edition that advises would-be terrorists and terror group members, to use the Internet to full advantage to find victims.

Be careful what you’re in the market for — ISIS has told its members to use Craigslist and fake rental ads to lure victims.

And once lured, slit their throats, the Rumiyah magazine advised.

Here’s the story, from PJ Media:

“The Islamic State magazine that has published tutorials on vehicle, knife and arson attacks as a tool of lone jihad is now encouraging terrorists to acquire guns at shows and shops and take hostages not for ransom but ‘to create as much carnage and terror as one possibly can.”‘

“The latest issue of Rumiyah magazine, distributed online in 10 languages including English, offers another installment of the ‘Just Terror Tactics’ series, praising lone jihadists including U.S. terrorists who have ‘set heroic examples with their operations.’

“The objective of taking hostages, would-be jihadists are told, is ‘not to hold large numbers of the kuffar hostage in order to negotiate one’s demands,’ but to sow terror with ‘the language of force, the language of killing, stabbing and slitting throats, chopping off heads, flattening them under trucks, and burning them alive, until they give the jizyah [tax] while they are in a state of humiliation.’”

Well, isn’t that special.

But the article goes on, against as PJ Media notes:

“‘The scenario for such an attack is that one assaults a busy, public, and enclosed location and rounds up the kuffar [disbelievers] who are present. Having gained control over the victims, one should then proceed to slaughter as many of them as he possibly can before the initial police response, as was outstandingly demonstrated by the mujahidin who carried out the Bataclan theatre massacre during the course of the blessed Paris raid,’ the article instructs.

“Orlando nightclub shooter Omar Mateen ‘superbly demonstrated this scenario’ of taking hostages simply to delay police while killing them ‘when, having armed himself with an assault rifle and a handgun, he single-handedly slaughtered 49 sodomites.’

“Jihadists are told that Europeans should try to acquire guns in conflict zones or from underground dealers, and ‘much like its Crusader European counterparts, the UK faces a gun control dilemma as it feebly attempts to fend off the influx of weapons, but to no avail’ so attackers are advised to find guns ‘readily available for purchase on the streets of Britain.’

“In the United States, ‘anything from a single-shot shotgun all the way up to a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle can be purchased at showrooms or through online sales – by way of private dealers – with no background checks, and without requiring either an ID or a gun license,’ ISIS states. ‘And with approximately 5,000 gun shows taking place annually within the United States, the acquisition of firearms becomes a very easy matter.’ …

“ISIS suggests luring targets by placing an ad at an unemployment center for a job Muslims would not take, then ‘subdue” each victim as they arrive at the interview site, even if that means renting a fake office, before murdering en masse.

“Another suggested lure is advertising a studio apartment for rent, small enough not ‘attract large families,’ and capture and kill the interested tenants. ‘It might even help to include in the ad that the apartment is ‘ideal for students,’ ISIS adds.

“Jihadists are also encouraged to place some stuff for sale on ‘buy and sell websites such as Craigslist, Gumtree, eBay, the Loot, and others’ and ‘specify that collection and payment is only available in person and that only cash is accepted. Also, the item being advertised should be something that requires the victim to enter one’s property.’

“‘It is likewise important to be realistic when advertising and not advertise something far below its valued price, as this can attract the attention of authorities searching for stolen goods or possibly attract other suspicions,’ the article states.”

‘I am going to work for ISIS. I hate you guys,’ says 12-year-old Syrian refugee girl

“When officers arrived, the 12-year-old punched one while he had his back turned, and tried to hit him a second time. She threatened to make false allegations that the police had ‘touched her,’ and threatened to kill the officers. ‘I am going to work for ISIS. I hate you guys,’ she told police…She also said in her statement to police that she thought the 911 calls were funny and she would do it again….’I hope that she has learned through this process that the police in Canada are there to help us and are not there to hurt us,’ Tasche said at the hearing, which was translated for the accused.”

Keep on hoping. But we are likely to hear from this girl again, and not in a positive way.

isis training in orphanage“Refugee girl sentenced for 60 fake 911 calls,” by Katie May, Winnipeg Free Press, April 28, 2017 (thanks to Blazing Cat Fur):

A young Syrian refugee with a traumatic past and a hostile attitude toward police has ended up with a criminal record at only 12 years old.

The 12-year-old girl, who recently arrived in Winnipeg with her family, was charged with public mischief and assaulting a police officer after she and her younger sister called 911 60 times between July and August last year. They used different cell phones they found, making false reports that were designated as high-priority and wasted police’s time, court heard. After the final 911 call on Aug. 24, police responded to the family’s home, diverting resources away from investigation of a bomb threat that was happening simultaneously downtown.

When officers arrived, the 12-year-old punched one while he had his back turned, and tried to hit him a second time. She threatened to make false allegations that the police had “touched her,” and threatened to kill the officers.

“I am going to work for ISIS. I hate you guys,” she told police, according to details shared in court during the girl’s sentencing this week.

She also said in her statement to police that she thought the 911 calls were funny and she would do it again. She spent 21 days in jail at the Manitoba Youth Centre following the charges.

She was sentenced to one year of probation, during which she must complete 75 hours of community service work and write letters of apology to the police officers involved.

The girl spent time in a refugee camp before her family was able to come to Canada and settle in Winnipeg.

“We know that (she) and her family went through some particularly difficult things in Syria,” said her defence lawyer, Hillarie Tasche, who said the 12-year-old and her sister are now receiving counselling with help from an Arabic translator.

“(She) has learned more and more that what she did was wrong and also that saying she wanted to work with ISIS was wrong because they were the very people that were trying to hurt her and her family,” her lawyer said, adding the girl has had to overcome cultural differences and a very different relationship with people in uniform.

“I hope that she has learned through this process that the police in Canada are there to help us and are not there to hurt us,” Tasche said at the hearing, which was translated for the accused….
