“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God

Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My Church have you been true?"

"No, Lord, I guess I ain't

Because those of us who carry guns

Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around

Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here,

Lord, It needn't be so grand,

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

What the Arab world produces - Hatred and Violence - Tragically, the Arab world doesn’t produce much else.
Wednesday, October 01, 2014
National Review : At least since the early part of the 20th century, aside from oil, the Arab world has produced and exported two products.
It has produced essentially no technology, medicine, or anything else in the world of science. It has almost no contributions to world literature, to art, or to intellectual development. According to the most recent United Nations Arab Human Development Reports (2003–2005), written by Arab intellectuals, Greece, with a population of 11 million, annually translates five times more books from English than does the entire Arab world, population 370 million.
Nor is this a new development. The total number of books translated into Arabic during the past 1,000 years is fewer than Spain translates into Spanish in one year. reports that about 100 million people in the Arab world are illiterate, and three-quarters of them are between the ages of 15 and 45. As for Arab women, the situation is even worse.
Nearly half of the Arab world’s women are illiterate, and sexual attacks on women have actually increased since the “Arab Spring,” as have forced marriages and trafficking. And the exact number of women murdered by family members in “honor killings” is not knowable. It is only known to be large.
In Egypt, the largest Arab country, 91 percent of women and girls are subjected to female genital mutilation, according to UNICEF. Not to mention the number of women in the Arab world who must wear veils or even full-face and full-body coverings known as burqas. And, of course, Saudi Arabia is infamous for not allowing women to drive a car.

Australia: Slain jihadi’s family stones media at funeral
Tuesday, September 30, 2014
StoningMediaAustraliaJihad Watch : Numan Haider stabbed a police officer and a federal agent. He threatened to kill Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.
He was shot dead in the midst of his jihad attack on the police. And apparently, from their actions at the funeral, his family blames the Australian media.
Perhaps we should send them some of our large coterie of pro-jihad journalists, such as Christiane Amanpour, Niraj Warikoo, Jennifer Fermino and Bob Smietana. Then they would put down their stones and show us Islam’s peaceful and tolerant side.
“Family reacts: Anger and grief boil over at mosque,” by Aleks Devic and James Dowling, Herald Sun, September 26, 2014 : ANGER boiled over outside a mosque as the body of the shot teen was prepared for burial. A man threw rocks at media waiting at the Doveton mosque after earlier being seen at Numan Haider’s family home. The teen terror suspect’s family spoke of their devastation. Others grieving the loss of Haider lashed out at police for shooting him.

Qatar is “a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram”
qatar_awareness_campaign_logoJihad Watch : Ms. Malika Bilal and Ms. Femi Oke
Al Jazeera English
PO Box 23127
Doha – Qatar
Dear Ms. Bilal and Ms. Femi Oke:

This letter is being sent to you on behalf of the Qatar Awareness Campaign Coalition. The purpose is to inform you and the public of the activities of Qatar, the country which owns Al Jazeera, the network on which you are co-hosts of the program, The Stream.
We urge to you read the information below, which includes evidence that Qatar is arguably the preeminent sponsor of terror in the world today. It is a benefactor of the genocidal armies of ISIS, al Qaeda, and Boko Haram; it is involved in Taliban narcotics trafficking through a relationship with the Pakistani National Logistics Cell; and profits from operating a virtual slave state. Qatar is involved in terror operations from Nigeria to Gaza to Syria to Iraq.
So the public understands why this letter is addressed to you both, who are American (Ms. Bilal) and British (Ms. Oke) citizens and co-hosts of an Al Jazeera daily program, here is pertinent background on the Doha-based network.
  • In 1996, then Emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, provided a $137 million loan to start Al Jazeera. Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani was the ruling monarch of Qatar from 1995-2013.
  • Al Jazeera is based out of Doha, the capital of Qatar.
  • In July 2013, 22 employees of Al Jazeera resigned after the station “air[ed] lies and misle[d] viewers” (according to Al Jazeera correspondent) regarding the Egyptian revolution on July 4, which ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi.
  • Al Jazeera is home to the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader (and Morsi-backer) Yusuf al-Qaradawi, who reaches an estimated 80 million viewers each week.
In light of Al Jazeera’s consistent and vocal support for the Muslim Brotherhood and their associated terror campaigns, we ask that you consider the attached sourced report on Qatar’s activities. The links cited are vetted and credible sources. We hope you take the time to verify the truth of the statements for yourself.
After doing so, the Coalition of the Qatar Awareness Campaign calls on you to exert due influence on the Qatari government to cease any type of involvement in all forms of Islamic terrorism, slavery, and drug trafficking! Read it all here.......

Hamas-linked CAIR claims situation of Muslims in America similar to that of blacks in segregated South
Jihad Watch : The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is celebrating its twentieth anniversary of deceit, disinformation, defamation and opposition to counter-terror programs by offering up a video full of more of the same.
It doesn’t mention, of course, that this “civil rights group” was actually named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case not by Pamela Geller, but by the Justice Department. Hamas-linked CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements.

Its California chapter distributed the poster above telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI. CAIR has opposed every anti-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented.
The video begins with a voice intoning, “The internment of Japanese Americans…,” as if Muslims were being interned in the U.S., or as if anyone were calling for their internment. “A repeat of the struggles of the African-American community…” — with a photo of a Southern policeman setting an attack dog on a black protester. Where have Muslims been set upon by police dogs?
Then follows a photo of a woman holding a newspaper featuring a headline about segregation. Where have U.S. Muslims been forced into segregated schools, except by their own choosing? “The NYPD’s anti-terror cops specifically targeted Muslims…” Whom should they have targeted? Methodists? Amish? “Right-wing extremists”?

When words dictate beheadings.
National Review : Hindsight is, as they say, 20/20, but even before he beheaded one co-worker at a food-distribution center in central Oklahoma last week, then began stabbing another, presumably someone had considered that Alton Nolen was . . . off.
That this characterizes the debate not only on the “Muslim street” but also within circles of Islamic scholarship is striking. Even among the most extreme fringe of Christians, one would be hard-pressed to find this degree of literal-mindedness.
It points to, says Dalrymple, “the lack of, as well as the burning need for, an Islamic Enlightenment.” But institutional enlightenment is hard, slow-going, and often unattractive to both the faithful and those outside the religion. The maturation of Christianity afforded by challengers such as Luther, Voltaire, and Nietzsche has deepened the religion while also complicating it.
Christianity still proclaims certain pure, uncomplicated truths, but if one scrapes past the surface, complexities abound. A complex faith, with its caveats and open questions, does not lend itself to extremism.

Netanyahu at UN: UN Human Rights Council a “terrorist rights council”
NetanyahurocketlauncherJihad Watch : He showed a photo of “Palestinian” children playing next to a rocket launcher, substantiating his charge that the “Palestinians” use human shields.

They try to provoke civilian casualties they can exploit for propaganda purposes. “Today the Jewish state is demonized with the apartheid libel and charges of genocide.” Bravo for calling the liars out.\

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is speaking at the United Nations General Assembly Monday.

Oklahoma Beheader’s Imam Defended Muslim Terrorism, Called for Jailing Pamela Geller
Monday, September 29, 2014
EOTW : (FPM) Imam Imad Enchassi, a Lebanese immigrant who claims to be a Palestinian Arab, was the Imam of the Oklahoma beheader’s mosque. While he is running the usual routine about peace and love, a story relayed to Robert Spencer by a former congregant shows a different side of him.

The Imam was Imad Enchassi the last I heard. He was a friend of mine. He is a Lebanese-born Sunni who hates Israel. He once gave a sermon that the Israelis were trying to collapse al-Aqsa mosque by digging tunnels underneath it. They have no issue with Palestinian suicide bombings because, as it was explained to me, that is the only weapon the Palestinians have.
That’s not a surprise, as Imam Imad Enchassi denounced Israel on social media and claimed to have family in Gaza who were killed during conflicts with Israel. Considering that Israel targets Hamas terrorists, that certainly raises some questions.

He also appears to be an officer in the state chapter of CAIR, a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood, and has numerous photos showcasing his involvement with Islamic Relief, an organization whose international chapters have had alleged ties to Hamas.

When terrorist supporter George Galloway was beaten up, Imam Imad Enchassi urged “prayers” for him. And he’s not too fond of critics of Islam in the US. In response to a story on Pamela Geller’s ad campaign critical of Islamic terrorism, he posted that, “Hate speech and ads that crosses freedom of speech and encouraged violence ought to be illegal.”

India moves closer to Israel: Indian PM Narendra Modi meets Israeli PM Netanyahu to step-up the diplomatic relations
From EOTW: New York: Prime Minister Narendra Modi met his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu here on Sunday in a bid to step-up the diplomatic relations between the two sides. Prime Minister Modi was accompanied by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj during the meeting.

The Israeli Prime Minister had earlier congratulated Narendra Modi after the BJP's emphatic win in the Lok Sabha polls via a phone call within 24 hours of the results being declared. Earlier today, Barak Ravid, the diplomatic correspondent for Israeli newspaper Haaretz, while speaking to ANI described his country's relationship with India as that of a mistress.

"India and Israel have had very strong and strategic relations for many years in cooperation in security, health, and agriculture, but Israel was always the mistress in the sense that the relations were strong but everything was under the carpet and not public," he said.

"What will be interesting in this meeting is if Netanyahu will get an invitation from Prime Minister Modi to come to New Delhi. If this will take place, I think it will be very significant because the last Israeli Prime Minister to visit India was Ariel Sharon more than ten years ago," Ravid added. Ravid also talked about the close counter-terrorism relations that the two countries share. "I think that Israel and India are working together on counter-terrorism for many years, especially on radical Islamic terrorism, Al-Qaeda affiliated terrorism and Lashkar-e-Taiba affiliated terrorism," he said.

Malaysian explains why he joined Islamic State: Muhammad demands it
IslamicState2Jihad Watch : “The people who went there didn’t go for fun or adventure, it’s for Islam.”
But don’t they know that the Islamic State is not Islamic and has nothing to do with Islam? You mean, they’re misunderstanding Islam even in modern, moderate Malaysia?
How could this have happened? Will Obama send Kerry over there to straighten them out? “Eat. Pray. Jihad. Malaysians fighting for IS in Syria say Prophet demands it,” Malay Mail Online, September 29, 2014:
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 29 ― Ahmad Salman Abdul Rahim chose to leave his job at a Malaysian construction company to fight alongside jihadists in Syria for a reason he says is 1,400 years old: The Prophet Muhammad demands it. Muhammad, the founder of Islam, once advised a companion to fight in the area that makes up modern-day Syria and predicted that Allah would send an “army of mujahideen” to the region,
Ahmad said. He said he’s there to avenge Muslims tortured and killed by President Bashar al-Assad’s regime. “We are portrayed as terrorists but I don’t care as this affair is between me and God,” UK-educated Ahmad, 38, said via Facebook messages from near Kfar Zeta in Syria’s Hama region. “Many of the end-of-times battles will happen around Syria. That’s among the reasons why I am here.”

So what de f##k are the Aussies doing about it? - ADF personnel cautioned on wearing uniforms after Sydney attack reported
Sunday, September 28, 2014
ABC Net : Australian military personnel should carefully consider wearing their uniforms in public, the Defence Department says, after an officer reported being attacked in Sydney.
The 41-year old Australian Defence Force (ADF) officer said he was threatened and assaulted by two males in Sydney's north-west and suffered minor bruising, NSW police said.
The man called police to report the incident early on Thursday and later spoke to officers at the Kings Cross station. The two alleged assailants have been described as being of Middle Eastern appearance, police said.

How America Helped Kill Middle Eastern Christianity by Rod Dreher
Orthodoxy Today : Two weeks after the Bush-Laghi meeting, on March 19, 2003, Operation Iraqi Freedom commenced.
Syrian RebelShortly after combat operations concluded on May 1, the real conflict began. Amid the chaos and sectarian violence that followed, Iraq’s Christians suffered severe persecution. Neither the military nor the State Department took action to protect them. In October 2003, human rights expert Nina Shea noted that religious freedom and a pluralistic Iraq were not high priorities for the administration, concluding that its “diffidence on religious freedom suggests Washington’s relative indifference to this basic human right.”
Shea added, “Washington’s refusal to insist on guarantees of religious freedom threatens to undermine its already difficult task of securing a fully democratic government in Iraq”—more prescience that would be likewise disregarded. Iraq’s diaspora Christian community in America had also foreseen the danger, and quickly took action, helping thousands of refugees with humanitarian assistance.
The Chaldean Federation’s Joseph Kassab, himself a refugee from Baathist Iraq decades before, advocated zealously for their protection. Kassab’s brother, Jabrail, a Chaldean archbishop, helped organize relief in Iraq during the sanctions from 1991-2003, doing “all that he could to help the Iraqi people—Christians and Muslims together.”
His brother remained at his post until October 2006, when a Syrian Orthodox priest, Fr. Paulos Eskander, was abducted and beheaded, after which Pope Benedict ordered him to leave Iraq. Fr. Eskander’s murder was part of a campaign that targeted the most conspicuous of Christians—the clergy. Those Iraqi Christians who fled to America would fare little better in seeking asylum.
Many Chaldeans and Assyrians were detained, until their cases were heard, in what an attorney familiar with Chaldean-asylum cases describes as “prisons,” adding that she “never worked on a case where a Chaldean was granted asylum, but I heard that it happened.” Throughout these deportation proceedings, the administration and the State Department steadfastly refused to recognize the conditions—which the U.S. had helped to bring about—as “persecution.” In consequence, most were deported.
Most were deported. Good Lord, I had no idea. What a freaking disgrace upon my country and its government.And though not as bad as Bush, the current president is still at it.

Father Douglas Bazi ministers to the spiritual and physical needs of Christian refugees.
National Review : Ainkawa, Iraq — During his days in Baghdad, Father Douglas Bazi survived a gunshot to the legs, a kidnapping that lasted nine days, and three explosions aimed at the Christian community.
He watched his church shrink from 2,600 members to only 250, some of his flock perishing and many more fleeing. So when Bazi ministers to hundreds of refugees living in flimsy tents in his Ainkawa churchyard in Kurdistan, he can relate to their suffering.“I tell them [their current situation] is not because of what God did,” Father Bazi tells me. “It is what humans or politics did. . . .
We belong to God. We don’t belong to anyone else. God saved us in the past, so let’s account for the same God, because he’s going to save us. But we have to put our hearts with God and not anyone else.” Iraq’s Christian refugees have already chosen their faith over their comfort, but that doesn’t mean they’re not enduring a spiritual crisis in addition to a humanitarian one.
Iraq’s current turmoil has displaced more than 1.8 million people in total, many of them Christians. Some estimates suggest that between half and two-thirds of the 1.4 million Christians counted in Iraq in 2003 have since fled from central Iraq, many of them to Kurdistan. Destitute, refugees now live in tents, unfinished buildings, or under bridges. Today, 214 families — more than 700 people — have sought refuge in the front yard of Father Bazi’s church, Mar Elia.

Bacon Jihad - Did Yorkshire Muslims kick a couple off a bus for singing about a pig to their autistic child? By Katherine Timpf
National Review : A British couple is claiming that they were accused of anti-Muslim racism and thrown off of a bus for singing a song about a cartoon pig to their autistic baby daughter.
Nick Barnfield and Sara Cleaves said they were singing the Peppa Pig theme song and imitating the character in an effort to calm their crying 15-month-old while returning from a hospital visit in Sheffield to their home in South Yorkshire earlier this month.
According to the couple, a woman then complained to the driver that their behavior was clearly a racist reference to the fact that Muslims cannot eat pork. “She was saying, ‘You’re irresponsible parents teaching your child to be racist. You shouldn’t be singing that to your daughter, it’s a song about pigs and it’s racist,’” Barnfield said.
Barnfield said the driver then ordered them to leave the bus, even though they were still two miles away from home. When the family tried to get onto another bus, he said, the driver immediately told them to leave. “The driver from the other bus had obviously radioed out to other buses and told them not to let us on,” he said.
Barnfield said it took the family more than two hours to walk home. Footage of the incident depicts a woman talking to the couple and the driver, as well as the couple leaving the bus. A spokesperson for the bus company, First, said that the driver has denied that racism accusations were a factor in the incident. The company is still investigating.

Mansouri led three other UAE F-16 pilots in the first airstrike
EoZ - Female Fighter Pilot Disowned By Family For Bombing ISIS Terrorists In Syria

Mansouri led three other UAE F-16 pilots in the first airstrike and it’s said that when the “U.S. tanker pilots called in for air refueling and asked for the UAE mission and when they heard a female voice on the other side they paused for 20 seconds.”
They then proceeded to drop bombs this week in coordinated attacks against Islamic State strongholds near Raqqa, Aleppo and Idlib. Unfortunately, an Arabic language news site called Wattan.TV is reporting that Mariam Al Mansouri’s family has disowned her for these actions.
The Mansouri family also called for support for the Syrian revolution, calling for “all factions and battalions operating on the scene Shamiyah to unite and join forces and efforts to a single goal, which is to drop the Assad regime.” The family also appears to have announced support specifically for the ISIS terrorist organization, saying that their family is “honored heroes of the Sunnis in Iraq and the Levant.”

Tayyip Edrogan , is keen to provoke chaos and sow divisions in the Middle East, through his support for groups and terrorist organizations
EoZEgypt slams Turkish leader Erdogan after UN speech

After world leaders gathered at the United Nations, Erdogan delivered a speech which featured stinging criticism of Sisi's rise and what he called inaction after Morsi's overthrow.

"Again, those objecting (to) the murders in Iraq, Syria and the murder of democracy in Egypt are subjected to certain unfair and groundless accusations and almost immediately accused of supporting terrorism," said Erdogan.
"The United Nations as well as the democratic countries have done nothing but watch the events such as overthrowing the elected president in Egypt and the killings of thousands of innocent people who want to defend their choice. And the person who carried out this coup is being legitimized."
In a statement, Egypt's foreign ministry dismissed Erdogan's comments on Sisi.
"There is no doubt that the fabrication of such lies and fabrications are not something strange that comes from the Turkish President, who is keen to provoke chaos to sow divisions in the Middle East region through its support for groups and terrorist organizations," the foreign ministry said.
"Whether political support or funding or accommodation in order to harm the interests of the peoples of the region to achieve personal ambitions for the Turkish president and revive illusions of the past."

Muslims intimidate us. They burn our stores, steal our real estate
EoZ - Pierre Rehov: Holy Land: The Perils Facing Christians

"All this talk about Israel being behind the pain of Christians in the Palestinian Territories is nonsense. Muslims intimidate us. They burn our stores, steal our real estate. They build mosques beside our churches, and make sure that the calls for prayer disrupt our services. They attack our daughters. There are many cases of rape that have never been reported. Families hide it out of shame, they move away. They flee." — Christian official.
Under dhimmi laws, non-Muslims under Muslim rule may not testify against Muslims, so it is virtually impossible for Christians whose lands have been stolen, or whose lives have been threatened, to appeal to the local legal system. Apparently the story is only appealing when Israel can be blamed.
If you ask anyone in the Middle East the meaning of the saying, " First the Saturday people, then the Sunday people," he will answer with a smile: "First, we will get rid of those who pray on Saturday, and then we will get rid of those who pray on Sunday." A recent survey conducted by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs shows that the Christian Population of Bethlehem dropped from 90% in the 19th century down to 60% in the 1990s. Today Christians make up less than 10%. What happened?

WATCH How This Gutsy ‘First’ Of A Kind Fighter Pilot Is Blowing Up Both ISIS Targets And Stereotypes
Even as women in parts of the Arab world fight the prohibition against their driving a car on public roads, one extraordinary Arab woman is driving an F-16 in the fight against Islamic State terrorism.

Fox News confirms that 35-year-old Major Mariam Al Mansouri — the first female air force pilot from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — has taken part in U.S.-led attacks on ISIS targets in Iraq in Syria this week. As the airstrikes against ISIS targets continued overnight — with a reported focus on oil refineries and facilities providing financial support to the terror group — much of the attack-related attention has been focused on this female pilot who broke a gender barrier.
A few months ago, CNN profiled Major Mariam Al Mansouri, and you can watch the video above.

The Bogus ‘Khorosan Group’ You never heard of it since it doesn’t exist.
National Review : We’re being had. Again. Another victory for Obama over yet another terror group. America is safe again...oh, except for the woman beheaded in Oklahoma. His media danced and sang never bothering to check if it was true or not. HE who walks on pond scum said it so it must be true.
For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees.
Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual worldview, which holds that empowering Islamic supremacists is the path to security and stability.
Yet even as war intensifies in Iraq and Syria — even as jihadists continue advancing, continue killing and capturing hapless opposition forces on the ground despite Obama’s futile air raids — the president won’t let go of the charade.

Greek bishop: “Your children will surely be slaves of Muslims”
MetropolitanAmvrosiosJihad Watch : Under the guise of an “anti-racist bill,” resistance to jihad terror and Islamic supremacism is being criminalized in Greece, where Islamic supremacists cannily use charges of “racism” to demonize and marginalize all those who oppose their insidious agenda, just as they do in the U.S. — aided and abetted by their Leftist and paleocon allies and Useful Idiots.

“Metropolitan Amvrosios: ‘Your children will be slaves of Muslims,’” Pravoslavie, September 23, 2014 :
Metropolitan Amvrosios of Kalavryta and Aigialeia has spoken out against the “Anti-racist law” passed in Greece. “With the entering into force of the anti-racist bill, all who talk about the motherland and patriotism will risk jail. “A priest who will speak up against Jehovah’s Witnesses and other religions from the ambo, may be declared a racist and imprisoned,” said the hierarch, cited by AgionOros with the reference to (”Russian Athens”).
“Soon we will become aliens in our own home country. I do not know whether I will live to see these times, but your children will surely be slaves of Muslims. Greece is disappearing, faith is disappearing.
Keep the flame of the motherland and faith. Globalization is not knocking at our doors any more – it has already entered our home,” he added.

Oklahoma beheader’s mosque taught caliphate, destruction of US and Israel

I went to the same mosque the Oklahoma Muslim who beheaded his co-worker today. I live ten minutes away!
The Imam was Imad Enchassi the last I heard. He was a friend of mine. He is a Lebanese-born Sunni who hates Israel. He once gave a sermon that the Israelis were trying to collapse al-Aqsa mosque by digging tunnels underneath it. They have no issue with Palestinian suicide bombings because, as it was explained to me, that is the only weapon the Palestinians have.
They sold Milestones in the book shop while I was there, which as you know calls for replacing all non-Islamic governments with Islamic ones. I remember listening to a tape a friend of mine, Yahya Graff, another white convert to Islam, had that prayed for the destruction of Israel and America.
The imam when I first converted, Suhaib Webb, is hailed as a moderate by liberals in the United States but he was the one that explicitly told me that according to Islam, three choices are to be given to non-Muslims: convert, pay the jizyah tax and live under Islamic rule, or jihad.
They try very hard to whitewash Islam when the media is around, but they believe in their religion and the ultimate goal of an Islamic caliphate.

Australia: 9-year-old Muslim boy praises Islamic State jihadis in mosque
9yearoldAusJihad Watch : Is this mosque being investigated?
Is it under surveillance? Why hasn’t it been shut down? The boy also praises “Palestinian” and other jihadis. “Baby-faced weapon: Boy, 9, heaps praise on ‘martyrs’ and ‘mujahideen’ engaged in bloody jihads throughout the Middle East,” by Taylor Auerbach,:
The Daily Telegraph, September 27, 2014. HE is the baby-faced weapon of the religiously driven, democracy-hating men striving for a Muslim caliphate built on sharia law. All of nine years old, he stands at the front of a gathering in Sydney reciting passages from the Koran and lecturing followers on the importance of sacrifice in Islam.
The little boy, who according to his father’s social media profile enjoys trips to McDonald’s and dinosaur exhibitions when he’s not giving sermons, heaps praise on “martyrs” and “mujahideen” engaged in bloody jihads throughout the Middle East. In a video posted by his father, the youngster delivers a chilling speech to a crowd of his “brothers and sisters” in which he calls for the restoration of Islamic authority around the world.

Islamic State overruns Iraqi army base near Baghdad, executes 300 soldiers
IslamicStatejihadis2Jihad Watch : Clearly the Islamic State is reeling from Obama’s airstrikes. “ISIS Overruns Iraqi Army Base Near Baghdad, Executes 300 Soldiers,” by Christopher Harress, International Business Times, September 25, 2014 (From Pamela Geller):
Militants from ISIS have overrun an Iraqi military base near Baghdad and executed 300 soldiers, according to a breaking news report from CNN.
While details of the exact location outside Baghdad are unavailable, the news comes after ISIS has been weakened by U.S. airstrikes in the north of the country. It now appears that the group has made gains in the central belt of the country and has an eye fixed on the nation’s capital, which it attacked a few days ago as well. BREAKING: ISIS overruns Iraqi Army base near Baghdad; reports that up to 300 Iraqi soldiers have been executed – @CNN.

FBI: Motive for Oklahoma beheading not yet determined
Jah'KeemYisraelreadingJihad Watch : “When you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks…” (Qur’an 47:4) Nah, that can’t be it. It’s a Religion of Peace!
Meanwhile, mosque spokesman Saad Mohammed “said Nolen had attended services where sermons were delivered condemning such attacks.”
I hope that even the clueless, politically correct and willfully ignorant FBI won’t just take his word for it, as a former member of the mosque tells a very different story, of a place where hatred of America and Israel and the need for a caliphate were preached.
Meanwhile, “Police: Man accused in Oklahoma beheading is awake,” by Tim Talley, Associated Press, September 27, 2014 : OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A man who was shot after he beheaded one woman and attacked another at an Oklahoma food processing plant from which he had just been fired has regained consciousness and has been interviewed by detectives, police said Saturday.
Alton Nolen, 30, remains hospitalized in stable condition after Thursday’s attack at the Vaughan Foods plant in the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore, Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said. He said that Nolen will be charged with first-degree murder and assault and battery with a deadly weapon and that he may also face federal charges. “We’ve already interviewed him, and charges will be filed on Monday,” Lewis said.

Denmark: Christians flee Muslim-dominated areas, “They tell me I ought to be stoned to death”
Blazing Cat Fur JojoDenmark(“Jojo”)

Translated from TV2 (note: strong language is included in this account). Sign up for more translations and support at
Christians with Middle Eastern backgrounds in Denmark experience harassment, verbal attacks and in some cases direct violence from Muslims. TV2 News has been in contact with a number of Christians here in Denmark who tell of violent experiences.
Jojo was born in Denmark of Lebanese parents. She lived in Gellerupparken (a major Muslim area) until she was eight. One day she sat in her car in Nørrebro (a Muslim-dominated area in Copenhagen). Seven young people with Arab background surrounded the car. One of them put his foot up on the hood and stared at her. “Do you think I’m looking at you, you fucking ugly whore. Try to see what clothes you wear, bitch,” he said to Jojo, who dresses as Danish women do: shorts and a t-shirt in the summer.
Then he noticed the cross around her neck. “Well, you have a cross on — then you are also a Christian fucking whore. Do you know what we do to people like you? Do you know what we do to people like you? You get stoned,” he screamed. … The Danish police say that they do not get many reports about such matters, but they fear that such crimes are largely under-reported, because people do not dare to report the cases. …
TV2 News has also interviewed another woman who is persecuted for her Christian faith. She wants to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals and because she and her son are being harassed on the block where they live. Living in that area as a single Christian mother without a Islamic scarf makes her stick out in an area with primarily Muslim families.
“My son is being called everything. I get called all sorts of things. Infidel. Filthy Christians. They tell me I ought to be stoned to death,” she says. “My son was beaten at the bus stop. He was called pig, dirty potato (Muslim slang for Danes), and that ‘you and your mother should die.”’

Angry at getting the sack, Alton Nolen goes back and beheads former co-worker
Eye On The World : (Oklahoma) 30-year-old Alton Alexander Nolen wasn't happy when he was sacked from Vaughan Foods in Moore County, Oklahoma, so he went back there and attacked two women which saw, 54-year-old Colleen Hufford being beheaded.
He then attacked another female worker (Traci Johnson), before an off-duty sheriff's deputy shot the twat with a rifle. Both he and his last victim have been taken to the hospital for treatment.

But here's the crux, it seems that before he was fired, Nolen had been trying to convert people to Islam. Yes, folks, dickhead is a Muslim, and in that single sentence you know all there is to know about why this prat murdered an innocent woman.

Just what is it about Muslims beheading people at the moment?

Obama Betrays the Troops He pledges not to use landmines, appeasing international activists at Americans’ expense.
National Review : On March 6, 2014, America’s highest-ranking military officer, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey, called anti-personnel landmines (APLs) “an important tool in the arsenal of the armed forces of the United States.” Yesterday, President Obama banned the armed forces from using them.
Why? To comply with a treaty — the Ottawa Convention — that the United States hasn’t even ratified. The U.S. Senate has not given its advice and consent to the treaty, but the Obama administration still feels compelled, in the words of a State Department spokesman, to “underscore its commitment to the spirit and humanitarian aims of the Ottawa Convention.”
In doing this, the president has effectively denied our troops the use of weapons that could help reduce U.S. casualties and help our military prevail in future conflicts. It’s not just General Dempsey who thinks so. Two major studies — one conducted by the National Research Council (NRC) and the other by NATO — concluded that APLs provide crucial tactical advantages on the battlefield.

Five things to know about India's Mars orbiter
Thursday, September 25, 2014
CNN-- The United States couldn't do it on its first try. Neither could the Soviets.
In true underdog fashion, India launched its ultra-budget spacecraft and bested the Americans and Europeans by becoming the first nation to succeed in sending a spacecraft into Mars' orbit on its initial attempt. Twenty-four hours into India's entry into the elite space club, the Mars Orbiter Mission, also known as Mangalyaan, is circling the Red Planet and sending back data and photos to the command center. Here are five things to know about the latest Mars darling:

Norway: Muslim Terrorists 'Planned to Behead Entire Family'
Eye On The World : Muslims planed to break  into a random home, behead an entire family, and post a footage online.

(INN) A group of Danish Muslim extremists sympathetic to the "Islamic State" terrorist group (IS) planned to murder an entire family and film it as a "warning" to Western states intervening against IS in Iraq and Syria. According to Norway's NRK TV channel the group of Islamists intended to break into a random home, slit the throats of all the residents and post the footage online.

The horrific plot is reminiscent of a similar one recently foiled in Australia, where a group of pro-IS Islamist terrorists planned to kidnap and behead a random member of the public and distribute footage of the gruesome killing in "revenge" for anti-IS airstrikes. The jihadis reportedly planned to wrap their victim in the Islamic State flag before murdering him.

Norwegian officials have declined to comment on the terror plot in their country, but it comes after a major terror alert in July which forced mass searches at border crossings and the closure of Olso's main synagogue as a security precaution. A Norwegian terror expert confirmed to the Norwegian-language site that "multiple sources" had confirmed the existence of such a plot.

Alarmingly, not long ago another Norwegian newspaper, Verdens Gang, claimed security services were on the alert for a group of IS terrorists on their way to the country to carry out an attack against Norwegian civilians involving knives. Four suspected terrorists reportedly landed in Athens, Greece, on their way to carry out the attack, but their current whereabouts are unknown according to the paper.

One of the Mavi Marmara Gaza flotilla jihadists killed fighting for Al Nusra in Syria

Eye On The World : From DHA (in Turkish): 40-year-old Yakup Bülent Alnıak identified as one of the al-Qaida-linked Al Nusra jihadists killed in an airstrike in Syria. He also was one of the club wielding humanitarians who traveled on a jihad mission to Gaza back in 2010. A fitting end, which was delayed.

Obama praises as “moderate” a Muslim cleric who backed fatwa on killing of U.S. soldiers
BinBayyahJihad Watch : The political and media elites are so avid to find “moderates,” and they know so little about Islamic doctrine, that this kind of thing happens rather frequently.
“Obama Praises Muslim Cleric Who Backed Fatwa on Killing of U.S. Soldiers,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, September 24, 2014:
President Barack Obama favorably quoted and praised on Wednesday in his speech before the United Nations a controversial Muslim cleric whose organization has reportedly endorsed the terror group Hamas and supported a fatwa condoning the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
Obama in his remarks offered praise to controversial cleric Sheikh Abdallah Bin Bayyah and referred to him as a moderate Muslim leader who can help combat the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’s (ISIL or ISIS) radical ideology. However, Bin Bayyah himself has long been engulfed in controversy for many of his views, including the reported backing of a 2004 fatwa that advocated violent resistance against Americans fighting in Iraq.

Australia: Teen Muslim who screamed “Slaughter the Christians” outside Christian college charged with intimidation
PoliceoutsidecollegeJihad Watch : He is fourteen years old. He was a passenger in the car. Who was driving?
It is likely that he is reflecting the culture of his home and community. Is anyone looking into that, or is he being treated as if he were a space alien set down in the midst of an earth family, with which he has nothing to do?
“‘Slaughter the Christians’: Teen charged after Sydney Maronite College targeted by IS threats,” by Ashlee Mullany, The Daily Telegraph, September 24, 2014 : A TEENAGE boy who screamed threats to ‘slaughter the Christians’ outside a school in Sydney’s west has been charged with intimidation and offensive conduct.
Police allege the 14-year-old boy from Wentworthville was sitting in the passenger seat of a car when he yelled the abusive comments while waving a flag outside Maronite College of the Holy Family in Harris Park last Tuesday. Onlookers were left shaken and terrified after a nun told police the boy was waving a flag that resembled the IS flag and had threatened to “slaughter the Christians.”

International group of Muslim scholars “refutes” Islamic State’s Islamic case — while endorsing jihad, Sharia, caliphate
ibrahim-hooper-mahdi-bray-nihad-awad-2009-12-10-10-10-18Jihad Watch : The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Fiqh Council of North America held a press conference in Washington today at which they declared that they had refuted the religious ideology of the Islamic State.
They issued this lengthy “Open Letter” (not, interestingly enough, a fatwa) addressed to the Islamic State’s caliph Ibrahim, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, explaining how he was misunderstanding Islam.
Is this an Islamic case against the Islamic State’s jihad terror that will move Islamic State fighters to lay down their arms? Or is it a deceptive piece designed to fool gullible non-Muslim Westerners into thinking that the case for “moderate Islam” has been made, but which will not change a single jihadi’s mind?
Unfortunately, it is the latter. To be sure, Hamas-linked CAIR and the Fiqh Council and all the signers of this Open Letter really do oppose the Islamic State. But they don’t oppose it because it is transgressing against the commands of what they believe to be a Religion of Peace. They oppose it because they want to establish a caliphate under the auspices of or led by the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Islamic State constitutes competition.
This is clear from their sly endorsements in this document of jihad, the Sharia, and the concept of the caliphate. It begins with an “Executive Summary” which is then filled out in greater detail. I will intersperse commentary below, first in general terms on the Executive Summary, and then taking up the arguments on each point in detail.

UK: Jihad preacher Anjem Choudary among nine arrested in anti-terrorism raid
ChoudaryandAbuHamzaJihad Watch : What took them so long? Anjem Choudary for years has been preaching jihad and sedition, and praising Islamic jihad murderers.
He was a friend of Mujaahid Abu Hamza (aka Michael Adebolajo), who murdered soldier Lee Rigby on a London street, and other jihadists.
It has struck so many people so odd that he has lived and operated freely in Britain for so long that it has long been widely rumored that he was really a spy, a “honeypot” to attract genuine jihadists who would then be arrested. But apparently he wasn’t.
Unless this arrest is an elaborate ruse, it makes clear that Choudary’s longtime freedom was just more of the British government’s suicidal appeasement policy toward Islamic supremacists. “Anjem Choudary held in London terror raids,” BBC, September 25, 2014: Nine men, including the radical Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary, have been arrested in London on suspicion of being members of a banned organisation.

Islamic State destroys 7th-century Green Church in Tikrit

“ISIS blow up Tikrit’s Green Church,” ANSA, September 25, 2014 :
(ANSA) – Cairo, September 25 – Islamic State (ISIS) militants have “completely destroyed” the iconic Green Church in the northern Iraqi city of Tikrit, the MENA news agency reported Thursday, citing Iraqi security sources.
The Islamists packed the church – one of the oldest Christian monuments in the Middle East – with explosives before detonating them.

History vindicates Pope’s Regensburg address
Blazing Cat Fur : On the evening of Sept. 12, 2006, my wife and I were dining in Krakow with Polish friends when an agitated Italian Vaticanista (pardon the redundancy in adjectives) called, demanding to know what I thought of “Zees crazee speech of zee Pope about zee Muslims.”
That was my first hint that the herd of independent minds in the world press was about to go ballistic on the subject of Pope Benedict XVI’s Regensburg Lecture: a “gaffe”-bone on which the media continued to gnaw until the end of Benedict’s pontificate.
Eight years later, the Regensburg Lecture looks a lot different. Indeed, those who actually read it in 2006 understood that, far from making a “gaffe,” Benedict XVI was exploring with scholarly precision two key questions, the answers to which would profoundly influence the civil war raging within Islam, a war the outcome of which will determine whether 21st-century Islam is safe for its own adherents and safe for the world.

Jihadist says Foley, Cantlie converted to Islam in captivity
isis-behead-journalist foleyJihad Watch : The  Qur’an says that “there is no compulsion in religion,” (2:256), but what constitutes “compulsion” is in the eye of the beholder.
The institutionalized subjugation of the dhimma, with its regular humiliation and harassment, from which one can be freed for the simple price of converting to Islam, is not considered compulsion.
Remember Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, the journalists who were kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam — even though their conversions were obviously coerced, their captors made them say that they were converting freely, and the captors probably believed that themselves. After all, the journos could have chosen to be killed instead “Jihadist says Foley, Cantlie converted to Islam in captivity,” AFP, September 24, 2014:
Brussels (AFP) – Western journalists James Foley and John Cantlie converted to Islam while being held hostage in Syria, a Belgian newspaper quoted a jihadist suspect as saying Wednesday, adding that the pair may have been forced to do so. Foley, an American, was beheaded by the Islamic State (IS) group last month, while Cantlie, a Briton, is believed to be still in captivity.

Signals of jihad in Australia have been building for years
Blazing Cat Fur : On Wednesday, Fairfax Media ran an opinion piece by a Muslim woman who wrote: "I still feel the scars of the Cronulla riots, where the flag of my beloved country was used as a symbol of pure hatred, of thuggery and racism."
This is ironic given that most of the hatred, thuggery and racism at Cronulla in December, 2005, came from Muslims. The demonstration and fracas at Cronulla beach, on December 11, was sparked by hundreds of incidents of harassment and violence by young Lebanese-Australian men, mainly directed at young women in bikinis or short skirts. I conducted dozens of interviews after the event and they can be summed up by a teacher at Cronulla High School:

"I have felt afraid for the safety of my family for the last 10 years [from] gangs of men of Middle Eastern appearance who have taunted, bullied or assaulted groups or individuals. My daughter has been taunted consistently when she goes to the beach… Women in swimming costumes… are often intimidated or taunted with 'sluts' and 'filth' and told they are 'asking for it'."

Guardian on Aussie terrorist killed by police: ‘Abdul Numan Haider was quiet, gentle and softly spoken, friend says’
Abdul Numan Haider attended a Muslim youth camp

Youth camp mate says teen terrorism suspect shot dead by police in Melbourne seemed to be looking for answers

Blazing Cat Fur : At a Muslim youth camp in Victoria early last year, Abdul Numan Haider attended every lecture, enthusiastically took part in sport and tried his best at camp quizzes.

He had to be woken up for dawn prayer but he never complained. Haider’s cabin mate, Mohammed Ibrahim, spent nine days with him and remembers him as “quiet, very gentle, very softly spoken”. The camp catered for young people of all backgrounds, many from disadvantaged families. The theme last year was “The Prophet”.

Ibrahim says he remembers, too, that Haider seemed to be looking for answers, and asking questions. He was curious, trying to work out his place in the world, and in Australia, as a young Muslim man. “I didn’t think he was very learned about the religion. His knowledge was basic, he was not well informed,” he said. “I do remember he was the most gentle, quiet, loving person in the camp”...

The Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The Khorasan Threat A new al-Qaeda offshoot targeting the West. By Tom Rogan
‘When black flags emerge from the east . . .”

— Quote from a hadith (reported saying of Mohammad)
National Review : Khorasan is a historic region of central and southern Asia. But when an al-Qaeda splinter group embraced “Khorasan” as its name, it wasn’t thinking about geography. Rather, it was seeking the identity of Salafi-extremist purity.
It would be a black-flag-bearing army descending from the metaphorical mountains of despair and advancing toward a war for holy justice. For these jihadists, the name “Khorasan” holds mystical significance as nomenclature for God’s army: that which cannot be defeated.
Khorasan sees itself as a movement of divinely inspired, valiant warriors, unafraid and certain of ordained victory.

The Battle of Kobane Where ISIS and Syrian Kurdish clash.
National Review : Erbil, Iraq — Heavily armed Islamic State militants currently surround the Syrian city of Kobane, also known as Ayn Al-Arab, from three sides; on the fourth lies the Turkish border. Inside the city, a 74-year-old Kurdish man named Uztas Osman waits with his rickety old Kalashnikov, ready to defend his hometown.
“He says he will stay ‘until ISIS comes next to my door,’” his anxious daughter, Sherin Sheihk Othman, tells me from her home in Erbil, Iraq, where she lives with her husband. She has the TV on constantly, Facebook open, and she’s calling her father several times an hour for updates. The fight to defend Kobane has heated up this week as the Islamic State launched a major offensive against the city.
Already in recent days, it has captured around 60 villages nearby. Meanwhile, a coalition of the United States and Arab forces has began a large-scale air campaign against the Islamic State in Syria, focusing its efforts in Raqqa and Aleppo, and along the Iraqi–Syrian border. Many Kurds in the region want the United States and international forces to also provide air support to help the Kurdish forces and local militiamen preparing to defend Kobane, which is not only home to many Syrian Kurds; recently, the city has also served as a refuge for tens of thousands of Christians and Arabs.
But the battle of Kobane is not just a local matter. A shared border with Turkey gives it geopolitical importance. The Islamic State, The Economist reported this week, “sees the territory as strategic because it lies close to the edges of its ‘caliphate’ and to a supply route used by foreign fighters joining the group.”

ISIS on Ice Have the Moderate Muslims been found? By Christine Sisto
National Review : As a Muslim terrorist army continues to ravage Syria and Iraq and behead British and American civilians, it can be difficult to remember that there are millions of moderate Muslims with no ill feeling toward the Western countries.
But while the cohort of “moderate Muslims” often seems to exist more in political speeches and punditry than in reality, a group of believers in the United Kingdom are drawing a line between their religion and the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL).
British Muslims are speaking out in a social-media campaign called #NotInMyName, which aims not only to oppose the Islamic State but to dispel frequent criticisms that Muslim populations stay silent in the face of Islamist terror.
