Islamic State bride from Alabama wants U.S. taxpayers to pay for her therapy if she comes home

President Trump has said she isn’t coming back, but Hamas-linked CAIR and others are still pushing for Hoda Muthana to be allowed back into the country. Whence her sense of entitlement, her demand that she be spared prison and that taxpayers foot the bill for her therapy? Non-Muslims paying for the upkeep of Muslims is a Qur’anic dictate:

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).

The caliph Umar said the jizya payments from the dhimmis were the source of the Muslims’ livelihood:

“Narrated Juwairiya bin Qudama at-Tamimi: We said to `Umar bin Al-Khattab, ‘O Chief of the believers! Advise us.’ He said, ‘I advise you to fulfill Allah’s Convention (made with the Dhimmis) as it is the convention of your Prophet and the source of the livelihood of your dependents (i.e. the taxes from the Dhimmis.)’” (Bukhari 4.53.388)

UK jihad preacher Anjem Choudary said in February 2013:

“We are on Jihad Seekers Allowance, We take the Jizya (protection money paid to Muslims by non-Muslims) which is ours anyway. The normal situation is to take money from the Kafir (non-Muslim), isn’t it? So this is normal situation. They give us the money. You work, give us the money. Allah Akbar, we take the money. Hopefully there is no one from the DSS (Department of Social Security) listening. Ah, but you see people will say you are not working. But the normal situation is for you to take money from the Kuffar (non-Muslim) So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”

“ISIS bride from Alabama says she wants US to pay for her therapy if she comes home and doesn’t want to go to prison as she recalls picking her three jihadi fighter husbands from a list of men along with ‘200’ other girls,” by Jennifer Smith, Dailymail.com, February 20, 2019:

The American ISIS bride who wants to come home to the US has told how she wants the government to pay for her to undergo therapy if it allows her to return – and says she is hopeful they won’t send her to jail.

Hoda Muthana, 24, spoke on Wednesday in an interview with ABC News, her first since fleeing the terror group three weeks ago, from a refugee camp in northern Syria.

With her 18-month-old son balanced on her lap, she said she had given up the extremist ‘ideology’ that convinced her to leave her family and that she wanted to be welcomed home by the American people.

‘I’m a normal human being who has been manipulated,’ Hoda, who was 20 when she fled, said.

‘I hope America doesn’t think I am a threat to them and I hope they accept me…I hope they excuse me because of how young and ignorant I was.

‘I can tell them that now I have changed, now I am a mother, I have none of the ideology and hopefully everyone will see it when I get back.’

Asked what she would expect as a reasonable form of punishment for joining the terror group and calling for bloodshed in the US on social media, she answered: ‘Maybe therapy lessons, maybe a process that will ensure us that we’ll never do this again.

‘Jail time, I don’t know if that has an effect on people. I need help mentally as well, I don’t have the ideology any more but I am just traumatized by my experience.’

She added that she cries herself to sleep ‘almost every night’ at the thought of being put behind bars….

‘I had a good relationship with my family but I wanted a more Americanized life. I just wanted to go out, I wanted to have, like, friends, go to places. I didn’t get any of that.

‘The only way out for me was to become practicing… to become more religious,’ she said….

Among her extremist tweets was one which read: ‘You have much to do while you live under our greatest enemy, enough of your sleeping!

‘Go on drive-bys and spill all of their blood, or rent a big truck and drive all over them. Veterans, Patriot, Memorial etc Day parades..go on drive by’s + spill all of their blood or rent a big truck n drive all over them. Kill them.’ [sic]…

Islamic State calls for jihad massacres in Paris, poster shows Eiffel Tower in flames

Even if none of this happens, although there is little or nothing to prevent it, the issuance of the threat is an end in itself, as it serves to “strike terror in the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60).

“ISIS fanatics call for lone wolf attacks in Paris in poster showing the Eiffel Tower up in flames,” by Sara Malm, MailOnline, February 15, 2019:

ISIS fanatics are calling for so-called ‘lone wolf’ attacks to be carried out in France, using a digitally manipulated image of the Eiffel Tower in Paris going up in flames.

It also shows the black and white flag of the Islamic State flying from the iconic landmark, as another strike is launched on a building nearby.

Supporters of the Islamist terror network have been known to release similar posters in the past, often using images of major Western cities such as New York and London.

They are often shared on encrypted messaging apps such as Telegram, to ‘inspire’ extremists to carry out terror attacks.

On Monday, the same group issued a poster depicting an artillery strike on the White House in Washington DC, the Colosseum in Rome and Egypt’s famous pyramids, threatening to ‘demolish thrones’.

On New Year’s Day, they published a chilling poster showing a jihadist with a sniper rifle looking out over New York, and another of a hooded fanatic standing in a crowd in London.

In the image of London, blood can be seen on Big Ben while other buildings burn in the background.

A jihadist with his face hidden holds a finger to his lips next to a caption saying: ‘Welcome to bloody years – The lone wolf action’….

Islamic State down to its last square mile in eastern Syria

The Islamic State declared its caliphate on June 29, 2014, and it looks as if it will last less than five years. Time to bring our troops home and work on containing jihad activity and preventing jihadis from coming here, rather than keeping American troops on endless missions in foreign countries.

“IS militants cling to last square mile in eastern Syria,” by Sarah El Deeb, Associated Press, February 14, 2019:

OUTSIDE BAGHOUZ, Syria (AP) — Islamic State group militants clung to their last square kilometer (square mile) of land in eastern Syria on Thursday with an unknown number of civilians trapped inside, officials said.

U.S.-backed forces conducted precision operations targeting the militants’ outposts in and around the village of Baghouz and worked to clear surrounding villages of remaining fighters, officials with the Kurdish-led forces said.

Thousands of people, including many foreign fighters and their families, have emerged from the area in the past few weeks amid ferocious fighting as the U.S.-supported Syrian Democratic Forces closed in from three sides.

They include scores of militants who surrendered to the SDF on Wednesday night, but the exodus of civilians has slowed to a trickle in recent days.

The United Nations opened a transit center Thursday in Suar, halfway between the towns of Hajin and Al Hol, with room for 400 people, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said, adding that a small number of displaced women and children are already using its services.

“The battle continues but the pace has changed. … There are advances but very slow,” said Mervan, an SDF official who goes by the nickname “the Brave.”

He said SDF operations have focused mainly on the village’s northeast axis, hitting posts held by IS and its cells. He said the militants attacked the Kurdish forces the night before, hitting one of their vehicles and killing a number of fighters. The militants are using new thermal weapons, he said.

“The forces are moving very slowly. They are not moving heavy weapons, very little unless guided and very precise,” he said. The SDF official said he estimates 300 militants remain inside the enclave, and about 1 square kilometer (1 square mile) remains in IS hands.

Ciyager Amed, an SDF official, said it is difficult to differentiate between the militants and civilians stilled holed up in Baghouz, citing one reason why the advances have slowed down. Another official said tunnels were still being discovered….

Muslima from Canada: ‘Having slaves is part of Sharia. I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is.’

Dura Ahmed is being treated as a victim in the Canadian media, and will likely be able to resume living freely in Canada despite having gone to live in the Islamic State. What kind of a life will she make in Canada? Do you think she will raise her children to be loyal, productive members of the Canadian state? It is suicidal to allow people who have freely gone to live in an entity that was and is avowedly at war with Canada and has called for the murder of Canadian civilians.

More on this story. “T.O. ISIS bride nabbed: ‘I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is,’” by Brad Hunter, Toronto Sun, February 10, 2019:

A Toronto woman who was a member of Islamic State’s women’s auxiliary and captured by U.S. forces claims she was clueless about the horrors committed by the death cult.

Dura Ahmed, 28, was one of two Canadian women captured in eastern Syria. The other is a former graphic designer from Alberta.

Regrets? She has none, according to CNN. Nor had Ahmed heard of the countless executions or the murder and enslavement of Yezidi women.

“Briefly, just briefly I heard about some executions taking place,” Ahmed told the network.

As for the Yezidis, she remained non-plussed.

“When I came here I heard. I haven’t seen one but…,” she laughed. “Well, having slaves is part of Sharia [Islamic law]. I believe in Sharia, wherever Sharia is. We must follow whoever is implementing the way, the law.”

Both Canadian women have children and lived in the tattered remains of what’s left of Islamic State’s caliphate.

According to the France 24 network, another 46-year-old Canadian woman showed up at the camp on Friday claiming ISIS was “doing good things.”

Ahmed’s husband arrived in Raqqa, Syria — the death cult’s heartland — in 2012. She was in school, she told CNN, and waited two years to take the plunge.

She knew nada about the events unfolding there. And she loved it.

Ahmed called it “an easy life” packed with Pringles and Twix chocolate bars.

Both her children were born under ISIS’ iron boot.

The 34-year-old Albertan would not give the network her name. She said that as a “Muslim wife,” she had to obey when her hubby asked her to go to the war zone….

Video: President Trump vows to stamp out ‘radical Islamic terror’ at Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS conference

In 2011, Obama ordered the removal of all mention of Islam and jihad from counter-terror training, making it difficult, if not impossible, for law enforcement and intelligence officials to understand the motivating ideology of jihad terrorists. Trump has been under tremendous pressure to fall into line with this thinking, which claims that we only encourage the jihadis if we identify them properly. He has not yet, however, yet removed all the obstacles that Obama placed in the way of the intelligence community knowing and understanding the enemy, and his “radical” adjective is incorrect: the jihadis are well within the mainstream of Islamic theology and law. Still, this is progress, albeit slow, toward a realistic appraisal of what we are up against, which has been lacking since September 17, 2001, when George W. Bush proclaimed that Islam was a religion of peace.

“WATCH: Trump Vows to Stomp Out ‘Radical Islamic Terror’ at Anti-ISIS Conference,” United with Israel, February 7, 2019 (thanks to the Geller Report):

Unlike his predecessor, the current U.S. president is not afraid to single out the ideology behind Mideast strife, from terrorism in Israel to Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons.

U.S. President Donald Trump addressed the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS after his State of the Union speech just one day prior.

Trump got straight to the point, vowing that the U.S. would continue to fight the forces of “radical Islamic terror,” and vanquish the Islamic State (ISIS), an ultra-violent group that has murdered and pillaged its way through Iraq and large swaths of Syria for the past five years or so.

While ISIS is on the ropes, it is holed up in a concentrated area, with a handful of never-say-die adherents refusing to surrender. If Trump has his way, these remnants of ISIS will be taken care of as well.

South Carolina man converts to Islam, plants explosives all over Anderson County

Yet another convert to Islam gets the idea that his new religion commands him to commit treason and mass murder. Despite the fact that this is a frequently occurring phenomenon, authorities have nowhere shown the slightest degree of interest in studying it.

Wesley Dallas Ayers, 27.

“Anderson man, who warned of jihad, sentenced to 30 years for using homemade explosives,” by Daniel J. Gross, Anderson Independent Mail, February 8, 2019:

An Anderson man who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State has been sentenced for using weapons of mass destruction after authorities found several homemade explosive devices around Anderson County.

Wesley Dallas Ayers, 27, was sentenced to more than 30 years in federal prison and five years of supervised release after previously pleading guilty, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced Friday.

Ayers admitted that he constructed and placed three explosive devices in various parts of Anderson County between Jan. 24, 2018 and Feb. 24, 2018, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Ayers pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in letters and warned of a jihad, according to investigators’ testimony in a federal court hearing before he pleaded guilty.

One of the devices, placed at the intersection of Travis and Martin roads in Anderson County, detonated and injured one person, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The other two devices were located and intercepted by law enforcement before they caused any harm.

Three hoax devices were also placed around Anderson County that resembled explosives but were not. In some devices, Ayers left notes indicating that more powerful devices were to come, according to the statement.

His arrest came after a month-long investigation with the Federal Bureau of Investigation; the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office and various other law enforcement agencies.

Authorities searched Ayers’ property that showed items consistent with the manufacturing of explosive devices.

Islamic State calls on Muslims to poison food Kate Middleton buys at supermarkets

This is nothing new. Al-Qaeda has long considered the contamination of food as a jihad mass murder tactic. And in 2017, the Islamic State called on Muslims to poison food in Western supermarkets

And it has happened at least twice in Britain:

UK: Shop-owners sold chocolate cake sprinkled with human feces

UK: Muslim who sprayed food with feces and urine can’t be deported

Food jihad? Muslim woman puts needles in meat in Canada

Kate Middleton – Duchess of Cambridge

“ISIS plot to KILL Kate Middleton in sick supermarket scheme,” by Isobel Dickinson, Daily Star, January 13, 2019:

TERRORISTS have threatened to poison Kate Middleton’s food in a sick new plot.

A vile post sent on encrypted extremist site Telegram urged Isis fanatics to try to tamper with what she eats at her favourite supermarkets.

They shared photos of the Duchess shopping, with a red X scrawled over her trolley, with the message: “We know what she eats – poison it!”

There was also a chilling new threat against Prince George.

A picture showed the tot holding Prince William’s hand beside a masked knife-wielding ISIS nut, alongside the words: “Rise of the kuffar” – which translates as “unbeliever”.

The messages prompted an exchange between dozens of fanatics on the chat room, detailing how to insert poison into food, where Kate has been spotted shopping.

They also shared information on which stores Kate shops in.

A security source told Daily Star Sunday the threat was being taken “very seriously”.

The hate message was posted on the same site used by Islamic State supporter Husnain Rashid to call on his followers to kill Kate and William’s son Prince George.

Former mosque teacher Rashid, 32, is now serving life in jail over the plot.

He also urged fanatics in some of the staggering 290,000 hate messages he sent on encrypted sites to poison tubs of ice cream in supermarkets across Britain.

The Telegram instant messaging app has military grade encryption and was described as a “tool kit for terrorism” during Rashid’s trial.

Our source said: “Intelligence agents believe the threats made against Kate are not idle and are linked to messages sent by Husnain Rashid….

Muslim from USA, 16, captured while waging jihad with the Islamic State in Syria

Seamus Hughes, the deputy director of the George Washington University Program on Extremism, which is actually the George Washington University Program on Obfuscating the Islamic Doctrinal Roots of Jihad Terror, says:

“Here’s the concern with this case. How long has this young man been in Syria? Did he go early on with family? Or is it a more recent case of traveling? And he is purported to have been fighting for ISIS. It’s one thing to say it and another to prove it in a court of law, and authorities may well decide not to prosecute him given his age.”

The real concerns should be these: where did this young man learn his understanding of Islam? What do his parents believe, and what are they doing? What does his mosque teach? How many other young men in his area believe the same way? But American investigators are almost certainly not going to ask these questions.

“American Boy, 16, Caught Fighting for ISIS in Syria, Militia Says,” by Rukmini Callimachi, New York Times, January 9, 2019:

A 16-year-old American boy fighting on behalf of the Islamic State was captured on the battlefield in Syria, an American-backed force fighting the militants said Wednesday.

If the teenager is proved to be a United States citizen, he would be the first American minor to be caught fighting on behalf of the terrorist group overseas.

His arrest follows the capture of Warren Christopher Clark, 34, a former substitute teacher from Texas whose seizure in the same area was announced on Sunday. They are among the handful of American citizens — just five so far — who have been taken alive on the front line in the battle against the Islamic State, according to a database maintained by the Program on Extremism at George Washington University.

The militia that announced the boy’s capture, the Syrian Democratic Forces, said he was among eight foreign fighters who were apprehended this week in the last sliver of Islamic State-held territory in northeastern Syria. The others included citizens of Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

United States officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and over the weekend the same militia announced the capture of what they said was another American citizen. There were indications, however, that that person might be from Trinidad, according to Simon Cottee, a senior lecturer in criminology at the University of Kent.

Mr. Cottee also said that he had a name very similar to that of the teenager said to be American in a database kept to track Islamic State fighters from Trinidad….

While the 16-year-old would be the only American minor caught on the battlefield, other American teenagers have been found in Islamic State-controlled territory….

And several other American teenagers have been arrested for trying to carry out attacks on behalf of the militants in the United States. Prosecuting them has proved difficult because of their age, said Seamus Hughes, the deputy director of the George Washington University Program on Extremism….

“Here’s the concern with this case,” Mr. Hughes said, referring to the teenager apprehended in Syria. “How long has this young man been in Syria? Did he go early on with family? Or is it a more recent case of traveling? And he is purported to have been fighting for ISIS. It’s one thing to say it and another to prove it in a court of law, and authorities may well decide not to prosecute him given his age.”

Pure Evil. Islamic State sent images of beheaded girl to her mother

“And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may strike terror in the enemy of Allah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know, whom Allah knows.” (Qur’an 8:60)

Maren Ueland and Vesterager Jespersen

“ISIS beheading image was sent to victim’s MOTHER: Fanatics ‘gloated about filming the killing of Scandinavian tourist and her friend in Morocco,’” by Julian Robinson and Miranda Aldersley, Mailonline, December 21, 2018:

Horrific images showing one of the murdered Scandinavian tourists being beheaded in Morocco have been sent to a victim’s mother, it has emerged.

ISIS fanatics gloated about the killing of Dane Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, 24, and Norwegian Maren Ueland, 28, by spreading the gruesome footage on social media.

The clip, in which a suspected ISIS terrorist shouts ‘it’s Allah’s will’, was also sent to friends of Ms Jespersen via ‘private messenger’, it has been claimed.

It has since been revealed that horrific images of the slain tourists have been posted on the Facebook page of Ms Ueland’s mother Irene. Some Moroccans bizarrely posted the images in a misguided bid to express sympathy along with calls for the killers to be executed.

Earlier, it was claimed that footage itself had been sent to friends of Ms Jespersen. While it is not clear exactly who sent them the footage, there will be strong suspicions it would have been from warped ISIS sympathisers.

It is possible the attackers may have seized Ms Jespersen’s phone, giving them access to her contacts.

Ms Jespersen and Ms Ueland were found dead near the village of Imlil in Morocco’s High Atlas mountains.

New York Times correspondent Rukmini Callimachi tweeted: ‘A European official close to the investigation confirmed that the beheading video was sent by private messenger to friends of the killed Danish woman by unknown senders who appeared to have Moroccan profiles. Police is investigating.’

Meanwhile, Moroccan authorities say nine more people have been arrested over the killings over the last two days. With four other men arrested earlier, that brings the total number of suspects in the case to 13.

Moroccan investigators say those arrested were carrying arms and ‘suspicious materials’ used in making explosives….

Islamic State encourages Muslims in ‘butchering and bayonet,’ telling them to ‘trust in Allah’

The Islamic State continues to couch all its exhortations to violence in Islamic terms. Western law enforcement and intelligence officials continue to ignore this or downplay its significance.

“ISIS Supporters Encourage ‘Easier Ways’ for Fellow Jihadists, Like ‘Butchering and Bayonet,’” by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media, November 16, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Lone jihadists are encouraged to pick “deadly and easier ways” of attacks in new tips circulated online among ISIS supporters, with an image depicting a woman walking on the Palais de Chaillot framed in crosshairs.

The crudely photoshopped image, with the Eiffel Tower in the background, also depicts three victims on the ground at the popular tourist spot as a terrorist sporting a black T-shirt and face mask wields a bloody knife.

“Lone wolves” are advised to “prepare a plan and study it correctly,” and “if the plan is prepared, trust in Allah.”

The first suggested method of attack is running over people with a heavy truck, like Nice in 2016, “if available.” Then comes “butchering and bayonet” and attacking “their gatherings.” That’s followed by “snatched [sic] them from their house one by one.”

France frequently figures into propaganda from ISIS and their online support network, as the November 2015 Paris attackers are lionized as key examples of a waging an assault on one’s home turf.

A recent call to arms from ISIS-backing media group Al-Abd Al-Faqir, issued after last week’s Melbourne attack, depicted the Eiffel Tower in flames with the “Just Terror” slogan that ISIS has long used in its publications to inspire lone jihad. A black-clad jihadist wearing a leather, zip-front vest stood before the scene, with the message, “Terrorize them in their lands. O Crusaders, we have prepared for you what never crossed your mind. For our goal is to horrify you and terrorize you and harm you.”

Muharir al-Ansar, another ISIS-supporting media group that creates and disseminates propaganda as well as incitement and recruitment materials on behalf of the group, in their own post-Melbourne imagery vowed “soon” painted on the side of a white cargo truck like that used in the Nice attack, with a masked jihadist popping out of the top.

“Soon, the vehicle attacks will be witnessed on your streets, by Allah’s permission,” read the text.
Sponsored

The same group circulated another poster declaring “Soon: the White House under fire: Just Terror.” The image showed a jihadist pointing a rifle outfitted with a scope through a defensive position in a broken wall, though it depicts the U.S. Capitol as the target instead of the White House….
