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.
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.

He had fled back to Iraq, and apparently his younger brother, who also took part in one of the violent sexual assaults, did also. Now wait a minute. Weren’t they supposed to be “refugees”? Weren’t they supposed to be in danger in Iraq? Yet they found refuge there after committing crimes in Germany. That should tell the Merkel government something, but it won’t.
“Denied asylum, Iraqi charged with rape and murder in Germany’s ‘Susanna case,’” AFP-JIJI, January 24, 2019:
BERLIN – German prosecutors Wednesday announced child rape and murder charges against a rejected Iraqi asylum-seeker in a case that fueled a heated debate about immigrant crime.
The accused in the “Susanna case,” 21-year-old Ali Bashar, had fled Germany after the crime for northern Iraq but was extradited in a mission joined personally by federal police chief Dieter Romann.
Bashar is accused of beating, raping and then strangling schoolgirl Susanna Maria Feldman, 14, in a wooded area near his refugee shelter in the city of Wiesbaden last May 23.
Earlier he had also allegedly twice raped an 11-year-old girl — once in April 2018 after locking her in his room, and again near a supermarket parking area the following month.
Prosecutors also laid charges against an Afghan youth who was living in the same refugee shelter, Mansoor Q., who was believed to be aged at least 14 at the time, for also raping the 11-year-old girl.
Prosecutors said Ali Bashar’s younger brother — who is believed to be in Iraq, according to media reports — had also taken part in a violent sexual assault against the younger girl.
Following a public outcry over Susanna’s death, German federal police hauled Bashar back from Arbil, northern Iraq, where he had been arrested by local Kurdish security forces….
Bashar had first arrived in Germany in 2015 along with his parents and five siblings.
He faced deportation after his request for asylum was rejected in December 2016, but he obtained a temporary residence permit pending his appeal.
During this time, he got into trouble with police on several occasions, including for fights, alleged robbery and possession of an illegal switchblade.
In his upcoming trial he also faces charges for a park robbery in which he beat, strangled and threatened with a knife a man to steal his watch, bag, phone and bank card….

“Israeli UN Envoy Reveals: Iran Spends $7 Billion Annually on Terror Activities in Middle East,” Algemeiner, January 22, 2019:
Israeli UN Ambassador Danny Danon revealed to the Security Council on Tuesday details of Iran’s terror activities throughout the Middle East.
“The Iranian regime’s obsession with Israel is not just well-known. It is expensive,” he said. “Seven billion dollars annually are directed toward the never ending attempts to destroy Israel. Follow the bloody trail of money starting in Tehran and you will arrive at the terror tunnels in Lebanon and Gaza and the weapons warehouses in Syria. It is now trying to infiltrate Judea and Samaria,”
“With the help of Saleh Al-Arouri, Hamas’ deputy political chief, and Saeed Izadi, the head of the Palestinian branch of the Iranian Quds Force, Iran is trying to turn Judea and Samaria into a fourth military front against Israel,” Danon added. “The world’s silence allows Iran to continue with its operations and aggression to undermine stability in the Middle East.”…

When ISIS fighters burst into Father Afran Sony’s monastery in northern Iraq in June 2014 wielding machine guns and knives, he and his brothers rushed to protect their most precious possessions.
They weren’t gold, relics or even their own lives, but some of the oldest surviving manuscripts in the Christian world.
For nearly two months, the terrorists held the handful of monks prisoner and openly discussed whether or not to kill them because they refused to renounce their faith. But Father Afran was more focused on saving the ancient Christian texts than himself.
At one point, he and a few brothers managed to escape to a nearby village under the cover of darkness, carrying away the most precious of the ancient scrolls under their cloaks. But ISIS caught them at a checkpoint and took them back to the monastery. That’s when they came up with a daring plan.
“We built a fake wall in a small windowless closet right under their noses and sealed the books in barrels inside,” he said. “Some of them date from the 4th century. In all, we saved 750 ancient books and scrolls.”
ISIS released the monks on July 20, 2014, and stayed another two years in the monastery without ever finding the manuscripts. But every other Christian relic they found, every cross and every grave, they smashed or defaced, including the tomb of Saints Behnam and Sarah, martyrs who lived more than 1,600 years ago.
Most Americans have had enough of our 15-year effort to bring peace, stability and, yes, some modicum of representative government to Iraq. President Trump repeatedly blasted President George W. Bush for going to war in 2003, calling it “the single worst decision ever made.”
And yet, the United States does have lasting interests in Iraq beyond eradicating weapons of mass destruction. Prime among them is one that until now we have neglected: ensuring the survival of Iraq’s Christian minority and, more generally, the Christians of the East.
Why should we care? America is fundamentally a Judeo-Christian nation. More than 70 percent of Americans self-identify as Christians, and if that statistic has any meaning, then we must take seriously the passage of St. Paul in I Corinthians 12:26, when he describes the body of Christ. “If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.”
There can be no doubt: The Body of Christ in northern Iraq is suffering. It has been suffering for the past 15 years in ways never before imaginable. And until recently, Americans and the US government have done little to help.
These are our people. This is our duty.
Through 1,400 years of Muslim domination, these communities have remained faithful, their monasteries and ancient churches largely intact. Until ISIS. Today, 150,000 Christians at most remain in Iraq, a scant 10 percent of the community that once thrived before 2003. And every day brings them closer to extinction.
Merved is a 32-year old Christian woman from Bartella, east of Mosul, who was driven out of her home by the ISIS invasion in 2014. She lost four family members to ISIS barbarity and today lives with her four young children in a refugee camp sponsored by the Assyrian Aid Society. Asked if she was ready to return home, she shook her head violently. “I am afraid!”
While ISIS lost its occupying power after a brutal, year-long battle with Iraqi, Kurdish and US-led coalition forces in 2017, members of the terrorist group have gone underground and are forming new cells just outside of Mosul, many of them led by women. “In recent months, we have arrested 40 women just in our sector,” said the national police chief for East Mosul, Gen. Aref al-Zebari. “They told our interrogators that they were protected and aided by the Turkish government,” he added.
In October this year, I returned from a 10-day fact-finding mission to Mosul and the surrounding Christian villages of the Nineveh Plain, which was evangelized by St. Thomas in the 1st century AD. Many of the churches here still conduct Mass in Aramaic, the language of Jesus. But ISIS’s presence lingered throughout.
“Look at this grave,” local councilman Luis Markos Ayoub told me, as we walked through the cemetery of Saint Georges church in Karamlesh, a Christian village just east of Mosul.
“It is fresh — not because the person just died, but because the family came back here to rebury their loved one. ISIS had dug up the dead body and decapitated it, because it was Christian.”
Recently the Archbishop of Canterbury called the “daily threats of murder” Christians face today “the worst situation since the Mongol invasions of the 13th century.”
“Many have left,” wrote the Most Reverend Justin Welby in the UK’s Sunday Telegraph. “Hundreds of thousands have been forced from their homes. Many have been killed, enslaved and persecuted or forcibly converted. Even those who remain ask the question, ‘Why stay?’ Christian communities that were the foundation of the universal Church now face the threat of imminent extinction.”
You don’t have to be a Christian to believe it’s in our national interest to ensure the survival of Iraqi Christians. Congress has determined that the three-year ISIS effort to eradicate the Christian and Yazidi populations under their control amounted to “genocide.”
Max Primorac, the top USAID official in Iraq, said genocide is a very specific crime that calls for a specific response. “We’ve made 27 grants in three months, probably the fastest ever,” Primorac said. “We didn’t just get the memo, we are reading it.”
The “memo” came from Vice President Mike Pence. Just over one year ago, Pence pledged that the Trump administration would change the way the US distributed aid, to ensure it directly reached Christian and Yazidi communities.
The first concrete step was to withdraw $55 million pledged to the United Nations, which has a track record of playing favorites with Muslims and wasting money on insider contractors. USAID is starting to spend that money directly on local projects administered by local organizations.
“The money is supporting reconstruction efforts, local schools and services such as trash collection,” Primorac said. “This is a White House priority.”
Other countries are also making an effort. With funds from a French aid organization, 28-year old architect Guillaume de Beaurepaire is working to rebuild the tomb of Benham and Sarah alongside Father Afran, who has since returned to his monastery.
“ISIS needed three attempts to blow up the tomb,” de Beaurepaire told me. “Most of the mausoleum was on the ground when we first got here. But ISIS missed things. The main underground niche was intact, and we found many of the carved tablets in the rubble and re-cemented them into the walls.”
In addition to aid, these communities need top-level political and diplomatic support from Washington. And they are starting to get it.
Just as I was leaving Iraq, I got a note from Primorac that a three-month negotiation, led by US ambassador to Iraq Douglas Silliman, had succeeded in convincing the Kurdish Regional Government to lift roadblocks that have isolated Christian towns on the Nineveh Plain and stifled economic development for years.
‘We need local government, local police, in Christian cantons.’
This is a great first step and shows on a practical level what aiding Iraqi Christians means: concrete actions, not speeches and empty promises.
The next steps are even more important: ensuring that Christians who return to Mosul and the Nineveh Plain have political and security guarantees so they can never again be victimized by Muslims or Kurds.
“We need to be able to govern ourselves,” said Yohanna Yosif Toma, legal advisor to the Hammurabi Human Rights Organization, an Iraqi group that provides both aid and political support to embattled Christians.
“We don’t need another province that is majority Muslims. We need local government, local police, in Christian cantons.”
The US has supported the notion of self-government for Iraq’s Christian community for years but has never put the full weight of our government behind it.
Now is the time, before these endangered communities disappear forever.

The Sharia culture of misogyny which dictates that women are inferiors and must hide their bodies and any display of overt femininity once again takes an innocent victim:
Iraqi social media star and model Tara Fares has been shot dead in Baghdad….The former Miss Baghdad, and first runner-up for Miss Iraq, was killed on Thursday after gunmen opened fire on her.
Tara was a Christian and “famous for her bold clothing and posts on social media.” Those attributes sealed her fate, along with that of other women in her country who fly in the face of the Sharia, such as the human rights activist, Suaad al-Ali, who “was shot and killed in an outdoor market by an unknown gunman” two days before. Last month, “two well-known women in Baghdad’s beauty industry” were also murdered: Rafeef al-Yaseri, known as the “Barbie of Iraq,” and Rasha al-Hassan — owner of a beauty center — who was found mysteriously dead inside her home. Now the government is ordering a so-called “investigation” in the face of these highly publicized deaths. Nothing will likely come of it, since the deaths are tied to the larger problem of Sharia intolerance against any semblance of autonomous female identity.
Once again, the sound of silence is deafening among Western feminists who are too busy marketing their #MeToo movement and fanning the flames of public lynchings of Western males rather than caring about real female victims of a supremacist ideology.
Note: A black-and-white photo can be seen on Instagram, showing Tara Fares pouting. It was shared with her nearly 3 million followers shortly after her murder.
“Social media star, a former ‘Miss Baghdad,’ shot dead,” by Eliza Mackintosh, Mohammed Tawfeeq and Hamdi Alkhshali, CNN, September 29, 2018:
Iraqi social media star and model Tara Fares has been shot dead in Baghdad, security officials confirmed to CNN.
The death of Fares and other recent killings prompted Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to order an investigation on Friday.
The former Miss Baghdad, and first runner-up for Miss Iraq, was killed on Thursday after gunmen opened fire on her in the capital’s Camp Sarah neighborhood, according to a statement by Iraq’s Interior Ministry, which is investigating the incident.
Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Saad Maan told an Iraqi TV station that two motorcyclists shot Fares while she was inside a vehicle.
The 22-year-old, a Christian whose father was Iraqi and mother Lebanese, was living in Erbil, but visited the capital occasionally. She was famous for her bold clothing and posts on social media.
A black-and-white photo showing Fares pouting was shared with her nearly 3 million Instagram followers shortly after her death, along with the comment: “In a treacherous and cowardly incident, Tara Fares Chamoun, is with God. We asked God to accept her with His great mercy.”…..

Here we go again, another violent crime and no one seems to know if the alleged perpetrator is a refugee, or if he is here through some other legal immigration program?
Karrar Al Khammasi
The story in The Gazette (and on Fox News this morning) reminded me that Colorado Springs has the distinction of being the location where five Iraqis who supposedly ‘helped’ our troops in Iraq were arrested in 2011 (several were ultimately convicted) for brutally raping a local woman.
Frankly, authorities do know what sort of visa the latest Iraqi arrested Thursday used to get here, they just don’t want the public to know!
A man accused of shooting a Colorado Springs police officer in the head in a shootout early Thursday while free on bond was known to immigration enforcement officials, yet evaded deportation despite a string of crimes, court records show.
Why Karrar Al Khammasi wasn’t deported was among the questions left unanswered Friday as his bond was revoked. Cem Duzel, the officer he is accused of shooting, remained hospitalized in critical condition.
The 31-year-old Iraqi immigrant appears to have lived in the Pikes Peak region for at least five years, and he had at least nine contacts with police in that time, according to court records.
Whether his guilty plea should have triggered deportation depends on a variety of factors. But his conviction raised the question as to why he was allowed to remain in the United States, said David Simmons, a Denver immigration attorney of more than 30 years and a former adjunct professor at the University of Denver.
Some forms of trespass are considered crimes of moral turpitude — which can lead to deportation — and others are not, Simmons said.
The consequences of such a conviction also could vary, depending on how long he had been in the country, or the nature of the circumstances that brought him here.
Some Iraqis living in the U.S. came as refugees who assisted the government or who fled persecution. But those refugees sometimes evade deportation because of chaos in their home country, or threats to their lives upon their return.
So because Iraq is a hellhole we must tolerate criminals among us?
It is unknown whether those things factored into Al Khammasi’s immigration here, and the type of visa Al Khammasi used to enter the United States wasn’t clear. [They know, they just don’t want to tell us!—-ed]
El Paso County sheriff’s spokesman Jacqueline Kirby said Al Khammasi was an Iraqi citizen who was born in Iraq. She had previously said Al Khammasi was a refugee, but she later said she was mistaken, and that she wasn’t certain of his immigration status.
The last five years of Al Khammasi’s life have been marked by several run-ins with the law.
If you are new to RRW, see my post in 2017where I listed some refugee terrorists and violent criminals which included a link to the Colorado rapist story. And, for really ambitious readers, see my ‘Crimes’ category which now archives over 2,000 posts.
And, one more thing….if you didn’t know, the refugee resettlement contractors I’m always talking about also get paid to place SIVs.

There are dozens of reports in publications around the world about the case of a missing San Antonio teen, Maarib al-Hishmawi, now found alive and well in the care of an unnamed organization that protected her.
She went into hiding because she didn’t want to go through with an arranged marriage (this is the United States!) and she reported she suffered physical abuse by her parents because of her refusal to essentially be sold to a man she didn’t know for $20,000. (Did I mention that this is the United States!).
Photo from Alarabiya.net.
I read several stories on the case and note that some, including the Washington Post,skirtedthe subject of just how this family came to live in the U.S. in the first place.
At other reports, including here at the Daily Caller, we learn that Maarib’s father was an interpreter and thus is likely to have been admitted on a Special Immigrant Visa.
Faithful reader know that I have been writing about the huge number of Afghans and Iraqis (with extended families) which have been arriving in the US for the last ten years and the pace has actually been increasing, especially from Afghanistan, during the Trump Administration. (This family obviously arrived during the Obama Admin.)
Here is the Daily Caller, but if you simply search for ‘Maarib al-Hishmawi’ you will see the story has gone viral.
Authorities arrested a Muslim couple from Iraq March 23 in San Antonio, Texas, for beating and torturing their daughter after she refused a forced marriage.
Sixteen-year-old Maarib Al Hishmawi ran away from Taft High School at the end of January and remained missing until authorities announced they found her as of March 24, according to the San Antonio Express-News. When authorities finally located Maarib, she told them she fled because her parents beat her with broomsticks, poured hot cooking oil on her, and choked her “almost to the point of unconsciousness.” These actions were due to Maarib’s refusal of consent to a forced marriage with an older man.
Hamdiyah Sabah Al Hishmawi (left) and Abdulah Fahmi Al Hishmawi
“This young lady … was subjected to some pretty bad abuse because she didn’t want to be married to this person,” Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar told The Washington Post.
Maarib’s parents, Abdulah Fahmi Al Hishmawi and Hamdiyah Sabah Al Hishmawi, arranged in mid-2017 to marry their daughter to an older man once he agreed to pay the family $20,000, investigators said.
Abdulah became increasingly agitated during the investigation, blaming a lack of police effort for his daughter’s continued disappearance and even suggested she was kidnapped and taken back to the Middle East. Authorities found Maarib, however, in mid-March in another city. They declined to name the group who sheltered her during that time.
Abdulah immigrated to the U.S. in 2016 from Iraq with his six children after having worked for the U.S. forces as an interpreter, he said. Maarib’s family held two year visas for the U.S. but did not go into detail about what kind of visas they were, Officials told San Antonio Express-News. [I don’t know what the reference to two years is, perhaps they have to renew it at that time. I’ll see if I can find out.—ed]
I should mention that SIV families come under the care of the usual gang of U.S. State Department resettlement contractors and are treated as refugees. So, assuming they were resettled in San Antonio, resettlement agencies headquartered there would know them. I guess these parents missed the cultural orientation sessions they were supposedly given.
I expect to see women’s rights activists and the NOW gang out in force condemning arranged marriages!

Cute little lad. Imagine what will happen when young Yusuf meets up with the young Americans who have been trained to be enraged over public bathrooms and sensitive to microaggressions.
“American boy in ISIS video warns Trump ‘puppet of the Jews,’” by Lisa Daftari, Foreign Desk, August 23, 2017:
The Islamic State has released a new propaganda video featuring an American boy who speaks directly to President Trump, calling him “the puppet of the Jews” and warns that “this battle will not end in Raqqa or Mosul;” it will end in the United States.
In the video, entitled The Fertile Nation 4, the young boy, identifying himself as 10-year-old “Yusuf,” says he made hijrah, or pilgrimage, to the Caliphate from America, “the land of the Kuffar (nonbeliever)” along with his mother two years ago. He is now in Raqqa, he says.
According to Yusuf, his father is an American soldier who served in Iraq, and without any knowledge about Islam, he began to learn once he reached the Islamic State.
He roots his threats to President Trump and the American people on an “Allah” who has “promised victory and not defeat,” and ends with “so get ready because the fighting has just begun.”
“We will remain until the day of judgement,” his 7-year-old ‘comrade’ says in the video, as an instructor shows them how to adjust the lens on viewfinder mounted on top of a gun.
In the past, the Islamic State has frequently called upon its native English speakers from England, Australia, South Africa and the U.S. to deliver stern warnings in its videos in English and to demonstrate the interest of Western supporter to the jihadi cause.
Also typical of previous ISIS videos, Yusuf again mentions U.S. culpability in the bombing Raqqa with “all kind of bombs including phosphorus shells.”
He introduces a friend, “Abdullah from Sinjar,” a 7-year-old who says he is a Yazidi who was abducted by ISIS when they captured Sinjar. He continues that he lives with Yusuf and is now learning about Islam.
“Islam is what unites Yusuf and I together” he says, with subsequent video footage of the two boys walking in a Raqqa playground followed by showing homes that they allege were targeted by the U.S.-led coalition….

Paradise is guaranteed to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (Qur’an 9:111).
“Seconds from detonation: Female suicide bomber holding her BABY is pictured moments before she blew the two of them up in Mosul in a bid to slaughter soldiers,” by Simon Holmes, Mailonline, July 9, 2017:
A photograph has emerged of a Mosul woman cradling her baby as she seemingly tries to escape the fighting that has ravaged her city.
However on further inspection it becomes apparent the Burka clad woman is also holding a detonator.
The picture was taken moments before the suicide bomber blew herself up, with her baby in her arms, as she walked past Iraqi troops.
The woman was walking out of a newly liberated area of the city with a group of fleeing civilians holding a trigger, bags and a young infant in her arms.
She had apparently tried to detonate the explosives as she passed the soldiers, but the bomb failed to go off until she had walked some distance away, a cameraman for local al-Mawsleya TV said.
She, her child and two soldiers were killed, several civilians were also injured in the blast.
Iraqi authorities are close to announcing the defeat of ISIS in the city whose territory has been cut to just 600 square metres over the past couple of days.
Troops are currently facing off with 200 ISIS soldiers and a selection of suicide bomber wives who are currently making a last stand in the ancient city.
ISIS’s Amaq news agency reported ‘fierce fighting’ around the riverside district of Maydan and said its fighters ‘were holding onto their fortified positions’.
‘The fighters of Islamic State are collectively pledging (to fight to the) death in Maydan,’ Amaq said in another online post.
More than 20 female suicide bombers hiding among civilians are believed to have detonated explosives in the last two weeks….

There is nothing too barbaric for the Islamic State…
The Islamic State forced a starving Yazidi sex slave to eat her own son’s corpse as a trick to entertain the jihadis, an Iraqi MP has revealed.
Although this sickening deed by the Islamic State was done for “entertainment,” the practice of “eating of infidels has precedents throughout Islamic history, especially as a terror tactic.”
Also, more recently, the practice of cannibalism was reportedly taught to youngsters at the highly prestigious Al Azhar university in Cairo, where youth were instructed that “they can kill and eat apostates.”
Yet confronting such savagery committed in the name of Islam is deemed “Islamophobic.” And Islamic State jihadists are now walking freely among peaceful citizens in Western countries while corrupt politicians continue to make their people vulnerable to jihad attacks through irresponsible immigration policies.
“Iraqi MP: Islamic State Fed Starving Sex Slave Her Own Child’s Corpse,” by Ben Kew, Breitbart, June 28, 2017:
The Islamic State forced a starving Yazidi sex slave to eat her own son’s corpse as a trick to entertain the jihadis, an Iraqi MP has revealed.
“One of the women whom we managed to retrieve from ISIS said that she was held in a cellar for three days without food or water,” Iraqi MP Vian Dakhil told Egyptian TV channel Extra News.
“Afterwards, they brought her a plate of rice and meat. She ate the food because she was very hungry.”
“When she was finished they said to her: ‘We cooked your one-year-old son that we took from you, and this is what you just ate,’” she continued, wiping away the tears as she recounted the ordeal.
Yazidis, a religious minority community native to Northern Iraq, have been the victims of mass persecution at the hands of the Islamic State, who consider them devil worshippers. Last year, the United Nations determined that Islamic State crimes against Yazidis should be classified as genocide.
During the interview, Dakhil revealed further atrocities committed by the terrorist organization, such as the gang rape of girls as young as ten.
“One of the girls said that they took six of her sisters. Her younger sister, a ten-year-old girl, was raped to death in front of her father and sisters. She was ten years old,” she said. “The question that we ask ourselves is: “Why? Why did these savages do this to us?”……
