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….

Ramadan in Afghanistan: Muslims slaughter 18 Muslims with suicide car bomb

“Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties, for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed.” (Qur’an 9:111)

“Car bomber kills 18 in east Afghanistan on 1st day of Ramzan,” AFP, May 27, 2017:

KHOST: A suicide car bomber killed 18 people in the eastern Afghan city of Khost today, officials said, in the first major insurgent attack at the start of the holy fasting month of Ramzan.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the bombing, which provincial authorities said targeted Afghan security forces working with American troops in Khost province.

The attack is the latest in a series of assaults on Western-backed forces as the Taliban step up their annual spring offensive and the insurgency expands more than 15 years after they were toppled from power in a US-led invasion.

“A suicide car bomb in Khost province has killed 18 people and wounded six others, including two children,” said interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish.

“The target was a public bus station which was hit by the bombing. The victims were in civilian clothes and it is difficult to verify their identities at this stage.”

But provincial police chief Faizullah Ghairat said the victims were civilians and members of the elite Khost Provincial Force (KPF) working with US troops.

“The bombing took place early morning when KPF members were heading to work,” Ghairat told AFP.

The brazen attack comes just a day after at least 15 Afghan soldiers were killed when Taliban fighters attacked their base in Kandahar, in the third major insurgent assault this week on the military in the southern province.

The assault in Shah Wali Kot district followed insurgent raids earlier this week on military bases in the same area and Maiwand district, bringing the death toll among Western-backed troops to around 60.

The battlefield losses mark a stinging blow for NATO-backed Afghan forces and have raised concerns about their capacity to beat back the resurgent Taliban.

Afghan forces are beset by unprecedented casualties and blamed for corruption, desertion and “ghost soldiers” who exist on the payroll but whose salaries are usurped by fraudulent commanders.

During another deadly Taliban attack on security outposts in southern Zabul province on Sunday, local officials made desperate calls to Afghan television stations to seek attention because they were unable to contact senior authorities for help.

The pleas for attention, a major embarrassment for the Western-backed government, highlighted the disarray in security ranks.

The Taliban launched their annual spring offensive in late April, heralding a surge in fighting as the US tries to craft a new Afghan strategy.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis last month warned of “another tough year” for security forces in Afghanistan.

The United States and several NATO allies are considering sending thousands more troops to break the stalemate against the resurgent militants.

Islamic State quotes Qur’an in call to attack non-Muslims in their homes during Ramadan

MI5 reveals that up to 23,000 radical Islamic terrorists are living in Britain

Is anyone surprised? Theresa May and her ilk have the Britain they have chosen, the Britain they have created. For years, May and her cohorts have hounded, stigmatized, and demonized foes of jihad terror, falsely claiming that they represent a “far-right” equivalent to jihad terrorists, while appeasing and accommodating Muslim groups in Britain, many of which were by no stretch of the imagination “moderate,” and allowing numerous jihad preachers to operate without hindrance.

Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation. Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.

The UK Home Office recently admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”

May’s government also recently admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country. And of course, May banned me from entering the country for saying: “[Islam] is a religion and is a belief system that mandates warfare against unbelievers,” which is like banning me for saying humans need oxygen to breathe.

But when you ban foes of jihad and allow jihad preachers to enter and preach all over the country, you’re going to get more jihad. This is Theresa May’s Britain. If Britain survives as a free nation, which is very much in doubt, Theresa May will not be hailed as a statesman. She will be excoriated as the traitorous criminal she is, one who is chiefly responsible for the downfall of British society.

“MI5 reveal ‘up to 23,000 jihadis living in Britain’ ahead of Bank Holiday security boost,” by Fraser Moore, Express, May 27, 2017:

UP TO 23,000 potential jihadis are reportedly living in Britain as police investigate the sprawling terror network linked to Manchester bomber Salman Abedi.

Security services revealed the figure as they said up to 3,000 would-be terrorists are being investigated as “subjects of interest”.

The announcement, unusual for security agencies such as MI5 and MI6, highlights the difficulties in investigating potential terror threats, according to insiders.

Amid a reported 500 active terror investigations, one security source told the Mail: “It is difficult because becoming aware that someone is an extremist sympathiser does not make them a live and present danger.

“It is a balancing act – is the intelligence sufficient to push them up the list of priorities or should the focus be on someone else given the finite resources available?”

The warning comes as extra police officers and soldiers are deployed to thousands of events across the UK this bank holiday weekend amid heightened terror fears.

Sick terror group Islamic State, which claimed responsibility for Monday’s attack that killed 22, has called for “all-out war” against the west as the Islamic holy month of Ramadan begins.

But police officials have announced beefed-up security at events such as Saturday’s FA cup final, the premiership rugby final and the Great Manchester Run.

And for the first time armed police will patrol Britain’s trains as soldiers guard the Houses of Parliament, Downing Street and Buckingham Palace.

Film premieres in London have also been scrapped in the wake of the horror bombing.

The UK premiere of The Mummy at Leicester Square was scheduled to take place on Thursday but Universal Pictures said the screening has been cancelled out of respect to the victims….

Dearborn Muslim sues Little Caesars for $100 MILLION over a pizza

Jihad everywhere, from the smallest minutia of daily life to blowing up children at a pop concert. It’s all of a piece (in this case a piece of pizza). It’s all work and war in the cause of Islam.

Litigation jihad. We see this in hundreds of lawsuits against America’s great businesses and corporations — Wal-Mart, Target, Disney, Abercrombie and Fitch, Hertz, Amazon, Heinz and many more. Islamic lawsuits to impose Islam on the marketplace and the workplace. I’ve been warning about this for years. You can read about it, and find tips for resisting it, in my book, Stop the Islamization of America.

Mind you, he ordered the pizza with pepperoni, twice. And even if he didn’t, dhimmis (or sub-humans under Islam) cannot ever make a mistake in accordance with sharia (Islamic law).

The lawsuit is frivolous and totally without merit. But that doesn’t mean he won’t win in a left-wing courtroom.

MUSLIM MAN SUES LITTLE CAESARS OVER PIZZA

Arkansas Online, May 26, 2017 (thanks to Robert N):

DEARBORN, MICH. — A MUSLIM MAN WHO SAYS LITTLE CAESARS SERVED HIM A PIZZA WITH PEPPERONI MADE WITH PORK HAS FILED A LAWSUIT SEEKING $100 MILLION.

The Detroit Free Press reported that the lawsuit filed Thursday in Wayne County Circuit Court says the pizza sold in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn was labeled “halal,” meaning it shouldn’t contain pork and would be prepared in a way that follows Islamic law.

A Little Caesars statement said the chain “cherishes our customers from all religions and cultures” and believes the lawsuit is “without merit.”

The lawsuit seeks class-action status. It said Mohamad Bazzi twice ordered “halal” pizza containing pork.

His attorney, Majed Moughni, said the lawsuit aims to deter others from accidentally ordering food containing pork from the restaurant. Dearborn has a large Muslim population.

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.”

“Kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush” — Qur’an 9:5

“‘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….

Fighting Back: AFDI’s HUGE CUNY #CancelSarsour Protest [Video]

There has been enormous press coverage surrounding my demo against CUNY’s obscene invitation to, as Milo succinctly put it, “sharia-loving, terrorist-embracing, Jew-hating, ticking time-bomb of progressive horror,” to keynote their commencement ceremonies.

The event was a smashing success, a triumph. Thousands came out in the pouring rain and cold to protest the monstrous invite to a monster.  And that was the lede story. The make-up of the crowd was the lede story. Mostly young, mixed, everything — true Americana. For me, that represents a sea change in our movement.  Seeing that, the enemedia had to spring into action. Not one hour after the event was over, the deranged left-wing New York Daily News crafted a false story headlined “Wild brawl breaks out at rally against CUNY’s commencement speaker civil-rights activist Linda Sarsour,” but of course, there was no wild brawl. Having been called out about this, they have since changed the headline to, “Milo Yiannopoulos-led protest against CUNY commencement speaker Linda Sarsour turns violent.” Wrong again: it was an AFDI protest, and it was not violent.

In a minor incident, two violent left-wing morons were arrested for attacking our people. That’s news? That’s standard operating procedure for those violent goons. But the New York Daily News wrote it up that the violent hooligans were the ones attacked. They just make this stuff up. Did they talk to any of the speakers? No. Did they talk to any of the victims of those arrested? No. The New York Daily News said there were no arrests. But there were. And of course, every other media outlet picking up on the story said that there were no arrests. Did anyone of these “journalists” even make a call to the NYPD?

The Daily Mail also covered our protest against the invitation given to a pro-terror, pro-sharia Jew-hater. What’s so telling is every major news organization picked up the Daily News fake news story about a wild brawl. There were two arrests — violent leftists, of course. It was our people who were attacked. But nowhere do you get the actual story in any of the news accounts. And we didn’t clash. The violent leftwing thugs were agitating and menacing our peaceful protest for the whole of the event.

The news story here isn’t about violence at our event. The story is that we are pushing back against this leftist/Islamic goosestepping army. Why the police put these violent morons right up against our stage is an interesting question. Read about that here.

The most accurate account of our rally is here.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Milo, John Guandolo, Nonie Darwish and David Wood gave rousing speeches to a drenched, enthusiastic crowd. It was a turning point.

The fact is that the only reason the cowards at CUNY haven’t cancelled Sarsour is that they are afraid that her coreligionists and their leftist lapdogs will blow the place up if they do.

Media outlets reported “scores” of protesters. Does this look like scores to you? It’s a whole city cross town block, 42nd street between 2nd and 3rd avenues.

The theme of our protest was this: we were mad as hell and we weren’t going to take it anymore.

“Violence erupts as Milo Yiannopoulos-led protesters chanting ‘make America great again’ clash with demonstrators after Linda Sarsour’s CUNY commencement speech,” by Simon Holmes, Mailonline, May 26, 2017:

A rally against one of City University of New York’s commencement speakers ended in a violent altercation between demonstrators and counter-protesters on Thursday.

The scuffle broke out after a band of demonstrators led by alt-right poster boy Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative political commentator Pam Geller and Assemblyman Dov Hikind took to the CUNY campus to blast its decision to select civil-rights activist Linda Sarsour as graduation speaker for its School of Public Health.

A small group of demonstrators said to be chanting ‘Make America Great Again’ supposedly surrounded and attacked 19-year-old counter-protester Heather Morris who accused the group of being ‘Nazis’.

‘They tried hitting me with their fists, their sticks, whatever they found,’ Morris told the New York Daily News after the scuffle.

‘They’re a bunch of Nazis…They probably targeted me because I’m young and I’m brown, too.’

Yiannopoulos and his small group of protesters were rallying against the University’s selection of Sarsour to be its June commencement speaker.

Sarsour rose to prominence in January as the activist who organised the Washington Women’s March soon after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

She has been accused of being an anti-semite for her support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

BDS seeks to put economic pressure on Israel until it grants Palestinian citizens full equality.

The self-proclaimed ‘Palestinian Activist’ also caused uproar after tweeting a photo of a young boy with rocks in each hand facing Israeli police, along with the words ‘the definition of courage.’

Yiannopoulos told the New York Daily News: ‘Linda Sarsour is a Sharia-loving, terrorist-embracing, Jew-hating, ticking time bomb.’

Speaking at the rally he said: ‘It’s now more important than ever to fight Islam in America and particularly its emissaries like Linda Sarsour.’

Geller in her address at the rally laid into Sarsour: ‘She’s earned a reputation as one of this country’s most vicious anti-Israel activists, she has called Netanyahu a ‘waste of skin.’

‘She tweeted a picture of a young Muslim child throwing a rock at Jews, calling him the definition of courage. Surely CUNY can do better?’

A number of CUNY professors have said opting to replace her as speaker would ‘conflict with the First Amendment and the principles of academic freedom.’

A spokesman said after the rally: ‘Some, who object to Ms. Sarsour’s positions, have called on CUNY to rescind the invitation.

‘To take such actions at a public university would violate the First Amendment as well as the principles of academic freedom.’

No arrests were made at the demonstration.

Yiannopoulos describes Linda Sarsour as a ‘Sharia-loving, terrorist-embracing, Jew-hating, ticking time bomb’

Indeed she is.

Remember: “Salman and his brother Ismail worshipped at Didsbury mosque, where their father, who is known as Abu Ismail within the community, is a well-known figure. ‘He used to do the five and call the adhan. He has an absolutely beautiful voice. And his boys learned the Qur’an by heart.’”

His father, who has ties to al-Qaeda and the Islamic State, is a well-known figure at the Didsbury Mosque. Why didn’t the Vast Majority of Peaceful Muslims there rebuke him and his sons for their jihadist leanings?

“Manchester bomber Salman Abedi’s father and brothers arrested, linked to ISIS, Al Qaeda,” Fox News, May 24, 2017 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Manchester bomber Salman Abedi apparently wasn’t the only member of his family to harbor extremist views as Libyan officials arrested the suicide bomber’s father and two brothers, and uncovered what investigators called a plot for a new attack.

Hashim Abedi, who was born in 1997, was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday evening by the Libyan counter-terrorism force Rada on suspicion of links to the Islamic State, and was planning a new attack on the Libyan capital, a government spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday.

The father of the bomber was arrested in Tripoli on Wednesday, a Libyan security spokesman told The Associated Press. The father, Ramadan Abedi, had said another brother of the bomber, Ismail, was arrested Tuesday.

Salman’s mother, Samia Tabbal, is belived to have returned to Libya, while the Facebook profile for his sister, Jomana, suggests that she still lives in Manchester. The mother was described in an article by the Guardian as a “very nice woman” who taught a friend’s daughter to read the Quran.

Earlier Abdel-Basit Haroun, a former security official in Libya, told The Associated Press Wednesday that he personally knew Ramadan Abedi, the father of Salman Abedi, and that the elder Abedi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in the 1990s. The group had links to Al Qaeda.

Although the LIFG disbanded, Haroun said the father belongs to the Salafi Jihadi movement, the most extreme sect of Salafism and from which Al Qaeda and the Islamic State group hail. Haroun added that Abedi, also known as Abu Ismail, had returned to the Libyan capital of Tripoli.

The LIFG was founded in 1995, and was involved in attempts to assassinate then-Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi as well as violent clashes with Benghazi police. In 2002, a senior LIFG commander, Anas al-Libi, who also was a companion of Al Qaeda founder Usama bin Laden, was detained by U.S. forces for his role in the 1998 bombings of the American Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed more than 200 people.

The group also was involved in the bloody riots at Abu Salim prison near Benghazi in 1996 that killed more than 1,200 prisoners.

The LIFG reportedly teamed up with the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group in planning the May 2003 bombings in Casablanca, Morocco, that killed more than 40 people and injured more than 100. The group also has been linked to the 2004 attacks in Madrid that killed 194 people.

Ramadan Abedi escaped Tripoli in 1993 after Qaddafi’s security authorities issued an arrest warrant and eventually sought political asylum in Britain. The elder Abedi first immigrated to London before settling in the Whalley Range area of south Manchester, where they had lived for at least a decade.

We don’t believe in killing innocents. This is not us.

– Ramadan Abedi, the father of Manchester bombing suspect Salman Abedi

The neighborhood is known to be home to a number of former LIFG members living in exile, including Abd al-Baset Azzouz – an expert bomb-maker who left Manchester to run a terrorist network in eastern Libya overseen by Ayman al-Zawahiri, Usama bin Laden’s successor as leader of Al Qaeda. Media in the United Kingdom reported in 2014 that Azzouz had 200 to 300 militants under his control.

In a telephone interview from Tripoli, Ramadan Abedi — who is now the administrative manager of the Central Security force in the Libyan capital — denied to The Associated Press that his son is linked to any militant group or the suicide bombing that killed 22 people.

The father of the alleged terrorist said that his family “aren’t the ones who blow up ourselves among innocents.”

“We don’t believe in killing innocents. This is not us,” he said….

Sure. But are non-Muslims innocent?

UK: Manchester jihad mass murderer’s older brother smiles as he is arrested for role in massacre

The Left’s Road Leads to Manchester

Which is the bigger threat? Jihad terror or “Islamophobia”? My latest in FrontPage:

On Monday night, a mass murderer killed 22 people and injured 59 at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

The perpetrator was a man named Salman Ramadan Abedi, a man whom friends described as a “devout” Muslim who had memorized the entire Qur’an. He was known to British authorities as a terror threat and had been in touch with a recruiter for the Islamic State (ISIS).

I hadn’t heard of Salman Abedi before he murdered all those little girls and their friends and family members at the Ariana Grande concert, but when I recently spoke at Truman State University in Missouri, the University at Buffalo, and Gettysburg College, and then at an event in Iceland, I discussed the belief system that incites people such as Salman Abedi to violence. I explored the ways in which jihad terrorists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and make recruits among peaceful Muslims, and the texts of the Qur’an and Islamic law that call upon Muslims to wage war against those who do not believe in Islam.

For this, the three universities and the Icelandic press treated my presence in the country as if Josef Goebbels had stopped by for a visit. A petition demanding that my Truman State appearance be canceled called me “rabble rouser, inflammatory speaker, and outright Islamaphobe [sic],” and claimed that I have “an agenda of hate and violence.” It further claimed that “allowing Spencer on this campus is detrimental to the safety and well-being of this university’s community members.” Others called for me to be physically attacked.

A similar petition at the University at Buffalo charged: “Spencer’s scheduled talk poses the very real risk of inciting acts of violence on campus between student communities.” A Gettysburg College student claimed, without providing any evidence, that my work has been “used as a basis for hate crimes against Muslims in the United States.”

The Icelandic press wrote in the same vein. The Reykjavik Grapevine warned: “Known Islamophobe To Hold Conference At Grand Hotel, Protest Likely.” After I left, the Iceland Monitor observed that “US lecturer and Islamophobe Robert Spencer…gave a lecture on what he calls the ‘Jihad Threat’ in Reykjavik recently.”

While I was there, several interviewers accused me of casting unjust suspicion upon the small Muslim community in Iceland, and worried that Muslims in Iceland might be attacked by vigilantes in the wake of my lecture. Virtually every news story about my Icelandic visit, like the petitions and news stories about my visits to those three universities, contained the information that Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik had mentioned me numerous times in his manifesto. None of them noted the differences between his beliefs and mine; or the fact that he started planning violence in the 1990s, before I had published anything about the jihad threat; or the fact that he criticized me in that same manifesto for not inciting violence; or the fact that he also quoted many people across the ideological spectrum, including Barack Obama, Tony Blair, and Condoleezza Rice, who are never questioned about their possible role in inciting him to kill.

The message was consistent and clear: Spencer is a dangerous person whose work threatens the safety of innocent people. He speaks about a threat where there is none.

Now it has been several weeks since I spoke at those three academic institutions and in Reykjavik, where a Leftist who was no doubt incited to act against me by the venomous coverage I received in the Icelandic media poisoned me. In that span, have any Muslims at Truman State, the University at Buffalo, Gettysburg College or anywhere in Iceland been brutalized by those who heard me speak? No. Has any Muslim anywhere been murdered by an “Islamophobe”?

No. But twenty-two people are dead in Britain at the hands of a man who is a manifestation of, as the Iceland Monitor put it, what I call the jihad threat. That threat is real, and growing worldwide, as the evidence of 30,000 jihad attacks worldwide since 9/11 shows.

Anders Breivik as a madman, a psychopath with no coherent world view. Those who disagree should try to account for the fact that this murderous “Islamophobe” counseled collaboration with the jihad terror groups Hamas and al-Qaeda. He did not represent the violent outcome of “Islamophobic” rhetoric. That there have been no other “Islamophobic” killers either before or after him is further evidence of this.

What his continuing notoriety actually represents is the avidity of the Left and the establishment media to stigmatize and demonize, and thereby marginalize and silence those who are calling attention to what is an actual threat: that of Islamic jihad.

Within the past year, there have been murderous jihad attacks in Orlando, Florida; Magnanville, France; Würzburg, Germany; Ansbach, Germany; Rouen, France; Ohio State University; Berlin; and now Manchester. I’ve listed only the attacks in Europe and the U.S.; there were many others elsewhere in that span as well. In the ones I’ve listed, 90 people were killed, all by Muslims who took the exhortations to kill that are contained in the Qur’an and Sunnah to heart.

There remain no casualties by anyone who took my exhortations to heart, anywhere at any time; I don’t call for or condone violence. Yet I am certain that those institutions of higher learning and the Icelandic media were far more hostile to me than they would have been if, say, a jihad terrorist freed from Guantanamo had come to speak.

I am banned from entering Britain for the crime of noting correctly that Islam has doctrines of violence; meanwhile, Britain has admitted numerous preachers of jihad violence against unbelievers.

Clearly Britain, like Truman State University, the University at Buffalo, Gettysburg College, and the Icelandic media, believes that the “jihad threat” is imaginary and the “Islamophobia” threat is real.

The body count says otherwise.

And if the students who protested my appearances and the Icelandic government and media don’t awaken to that fact quickly, they will discover it by direct experience, on their own soil. The Left’s strategy regarding “Islamophobia” leads straight to Manchester.

Once every foe of jihad terror is demonized and silenced, who will be left to speak out in resistance? No one – and then the jihad will advanced unopposed and unimpeded, while those who might have spoken out remain silent for fear of charges of “Islamophobia.”

After Manchester Muslim massacre, UK troops to occupy…the UK

A nation spiraling toward chaos, due to the actions of its own government and entrenched political and media elites.

“UK to deploy troops after attack, risk now ‘critical’: May,” Reuters, May 23, 2017:

Britain’s armed forces will be deployed to boost security, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Tuesday, as the country raised its terror threat to the highest level of “critical” after a suicide attack in Manchester that killed 22 people, including children.

May said members of the armed forces would be positioned at key sites to free up police for patrols and military personnel might be deployed at public events such as concerts and sports events as a further attack was seen as potentially imminent.

May said the independent body which sets the threat level had recommended it be raised from “severe” after a man named by police as Salman Abedi set off an improvised bomb on Monday night as crowds streamed out of a concert….

UK: Manchester jihad mass murderer “devout” Muslim who learned Qur’an by heart

Manchester jihad mass murderer “devout” Muslim who learned Qur’an by heart

He learned the Qur’an by heart and his father is a pillar of the mosque. Yet somehow he succumbed to what Theresa May and so many other Western leaders have repeatedly characterized as an outrageous misunderstanding and hijacking of the true teachings of Islam. Why wasn’t the peaceful, benign Islam that Abedi supposedly imbibed at home and at his mosque, and from the Qur’an itself, not strong enough to withstand the appeal of this twisted version? Authorities never answer, or even seem to consider, such questions.

“Salman Ramadan Abedi named by police as Manchester Arena attacker,” by Ian Cobain, Frances Perraudin, Steven Morris, and Nazia Parveen, Guardian, May 23, 2017:

The man who murdered 22 people and injured 59 others has been named as Salman Ramadan Abedi, a Mancunian of Libyan descent.

Police confirmed the 22-year-old’s identity after officials in the United States passed it to news reporters, apparently against the wishes of the British police and security services.

Abedi was known to the security services but was not part of any active investigation or regarded as a high risk. He was viewed as a peripheral figure in much the same way as the Westminister attacker, Khalid Masood.

The police and security services are trying to establish whether he worked alone or was part of a wider network that helped him with the bomb. Although Islamic State has claimed responsibility, the police have found no evidence to support this.

Even before Abedi was named, several members of south Manchester’s Libyan community wondered whether the suicide bomber was one of their own: perhaps one of the young men who had fought in Libya during the 2011 revolution, some of whom came home traumatised and angry.

But none appear to have suspected that British-born Abedi – a slightly withdrawn, devout young man, always respectful to his elders – would become a mass murderer.

“Salman? I’m astonished by this,” one member of Manchester’s Libyan community told the Guardian. “He was such a quiet boy, always very respectful towards me. His brother Ismail is outgoing, but Salman was very quiet. He is such an unlikely person to have done this.”

Salman and his brother Ismail worshipped at Didsbury mosque, where their father, who is known as Abu Ismail within the community, is a well-known figure. “He used to do the five and call the adhan. He has an absolutely beautiful voice. And his boys learned the Qur’an by heart.

“Abu Ismail will be terribly distraught. He was always very confrontational with jihadi ideology, and this Isis thing isn’t even jihad, it’s criminality. The family will be devastated.”

Abu Ismail Abedi, who worked as an odd-job man in Manchester, is thought to be in Tripoli. His wife, Samia, is thought to be in Manchester. The couple are believed to have another son, Hashem, and a daughter, Jomana.

“Abu Ismail comes and goes between here and there,” the family friend said. “I can’t believe [Salman Abedi] would have been radicalised in Tripoli. All those types have been driven out of the city. It must have happened here.

“But what was he doing, murdering all those people. There must have been somebody influencing him. It’s terrible. He was off his head.”

But others had a different recollection. Mohammed Saeed, a senior figure of Didsbury Mosque and Islamic Centre, said Salman Abedi had looked at him “with hate” after he gave a sermon criticising Isis and Ansar al-Sharia in Libya.

Saeed said he gave a strong sermon against terrorism and about the sanctity of life in 2015. He said 2,000 members of the mosque were with him; a small number were not; and a few signed a petition criticising him.

“Salman showed me a face of hate after that sermon,” he said. “He was showing me hatred.”

Saeed said a friend was so worried that he got his adult children to sit beside Salman Abedi in case he was attacked by him….

Did he notify the police?
