Florida Imam Profanes 9-11 Service at Barry University

Hat tip Creeping Sharia

A Florida imam, Nasir Ahmad, participated at a 9-11 memorial at Barry University and chanted over and over, "Allahu Akhbar".

How dare he?

Far beyond, "God is great", Ahmad knows that phrase has other significance to our sensitivities. As pointed out in the article, this is what terrorists yell when they are committing murder. There is an element of it that says "conquest".

Ahmad and his defenders can spin this any way they want. He knows he was sending a message to that audience, and it wasn't that God is great.

Refugee Resettlement Program: Christians Need Not Apply

Hat tip Freedom Outpost and Vision to America

For over a year,  I and others have been writing about the dire situation that Christians in the Middle East find themselves. From one end of the Muslim world to the other  Christians are being persecuted. In Egypt, Coptic churches are burning, and Coptic children are being kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam. In Syria and Iraq, the situation is even more dire as Christians are being rounded up, forced to convert, or be executed. They are literally fleeing for their lives.

Yet guess who will be coming to the US as part of the UN's Refugee Resettlement Program: You guessed it.

Here is my question: Where are the Copts? Where are the Assyrians? Where are the Chaldeans? They are the ones who need help and resettlement. There is no future for them in the Middle East. Should they not get first priority?

Have we not learned our lesson with the Somalis? Have we not learned our lesson with the Brothers Tsarnaev? Apparently not. We just repeating it and compounding the problem. Here we are worried about people with US passports running off to join the jihad in Iraq and Syria and bringing their terrorist skills back home while we are importing thousands more, some of whom undoubtedly will turn against us. The Europeans are doing exactly the same thing. None of it makes sense.

Why Are We Funding Propaganda in Our Universities?

Hat tip Algemeiner

My friends at the AMCHA Initiative have just come out with the results of a 3-year-study of the UCLA Center for Near East Studies, which shows a clear bias against Israel-a bias that often spills into anti-Semitism.

Just this week, AMCHA's Professor Tammi Rossman-Benjamin of UC Santa Cruz and Leila Beckwith, Professor Emeritus at UCLA, presented these findings at the UC Regents meeting. It should also be noted that in the past year both UC President Janet Napolitano and UCLA Chancellor Gene Block have issued statements in criticism of the activities of Students for Justice in Palestine (UCLA) for their anti-Semitic acts on campus, which included trying to keep pro-Israel Jewish students out of student government and to stop a pro-Israel Jewish student from being appointed as student regent (notwithstanding the fact that an anti-Israel Muslim student has been serving as student regent).

The bias that permeates most-if not all- university Middle East studies departments is obvious for all to see. They are bastions of anti-Israel, anti-US, and anti-West propaganda being spewed forth in most cases by leftists and people who came here from hell-hole countries dedicated to the destruction of the Jewish state. This is not even close to scholarship; rather it is more akin to the rabid partisanship to be found at an Oakland Raiders football game. Clearly our students deserve better.

That these departments receive government funding (to go along with their funding from Saudi Arabia) is an outrage.

Here is the link to the full AMCHA report.

Pat Condell Explains the Resurgence of Anti-Semitism in Europe

Hat tip Nancy

I am posting the latest video by Irish pundit Pat Condell as he explains how anti-Semitsim has returned to Europe. Pat takes no prisoners here as he lays the blame on the shoulders of Europe's large Muslim immigrant population.

"Israel is a diamond in a sea of mud." 


I often wonder given the craven obeisance that the UK gives to its restive Muslim population why they have not prosecuted Mr Condell for some kind of bogus charge of hate speech. Ma7ybe Ireland has too much autonomous to cave in to London, or maybe he is taking after the old Radio Luxembourg and broadcasting from off-shore. Suffice to say, Europe needs more people like Condell. True they have Geert Wilders in Holland, Jimmie Åkesson in Sweden, Oskar Freysinger in Switzerland, Fjordman in Norway, Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff in Austria, Guy Milliere in France, Michael Stuerzenberger in Germany, and others whose names I don't recall off the top of my head. Some have actually been prosecuted. Others run that risk every day to say nothing of the risk of being beheaded in broad daylight on their own streets.

Stay safe, Pat.

Annual Southern California CAIR Banquet

The Southern California chapter of CAIR is holding their annual banquet November 8 at where else? The Anaheim Hilton. And not surprisingly, they have a controversial speaker, Johari Abdul-Malik, the outreach director for the notorious Dar al Hijrah mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, which has been the "nest' for several notable terrorists including Anwar Awlaki. Here is what Discover the Networks has to say about Abdul-Malik.

It gets better. Here is what the Investigative Project on Terrorism has to say about Abdul-Malik:

However, the keynote speaker is a Yemeni journalist, politician and human rights activist  named Tawakkol Karman. She is the first Arab woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize (2011) for her opposition to the Yemeni dictatorship. So far so good. In 2013, she ruffled some feathers in Egypt when she referred to Mohammad Morsi as the "Arab world's Mandela".

So as I see it, CAIR is featuring a man from  a mosque with one of the worst records in the US for breeding radicals, who advocates the dominance of Islam in America, and a woman who has ties and sympathies to the Muslim Brotherhood (which, of course, CAIR does as well).

But CAIR is a moderate organization.

Australian Police Foil Beheading Plot: Local Imam Reacts

Australian police have conducted a sweep that resulted in numerous arrests which prevented what they claimed was a plot to kidnap and behead an Australian citizen. Subsequently, a local imam has denounced the police action as an attack on Islam.

Here is a report from BBC on the plot itself.

And here is the righteous indignation of an imam in Perth, Australia (Daily Telegraph). His name is Mohammad Junaid Thorne.

It's going to start happening, here. It has happened twice in London. ISIS is inspiring all of these cockroaches like Al Qaeda never dreamed of. But they can only kill us if they are in our countries. Aside from locking them up, we need to start taking away naturalized citizenship and deporting everyone  we deem as a danger (individuals). It is also time to stop Islamic immigration into our countries as well as visas of any kind. It is simply a matter of protecting the lives and safety of our people. Not to do so in light of everything that is happening worldwide is irresponsible. Our countries need to start looking at our laws and changing ones the need to be fixed. In addition, we need to promptly label these groups as terror organizations and vigorously prosecute those who join, aid or abet them.

If we don't do these things, car bombs and beheadings will become part of our lives in the West. That is unacceptable.

Jeh Johnson-Clueless

Hat tip Newsmax

Any suggestion that DHS secretary Jeh Johnson would not be able to fill the shoes of his predecessor,Janet Napolitano, were put to rest today when he testified before the House Homeland Security Committee.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) set Johnson up beautifully when he asked him if he was aware of any cases of terrorists or suspected terrorists crossing the US-Mexican border.

"Beats the Hell out of me," answered Johnson. ( I am, uh, paraphrasing.)

Read the rest of the story here.

Sleep well, America.

Cavalcade of Jihad Around the World

If you think those horrific stories coming out of the Middle East are limited to Iraq and Syria, think again. It only takes a couple of links to show you what is going on world-wide.

We begin with the Swedish blog, Jihad i Malmo, which has a recap in English which is quite useful. The Swedish title is The Caliphate's Offensive Against the West and has information in Swedish about what is going on in that country. It says that Swedish authorities estimate at least 80 persons have gone from Sweden to Syria and Iraq. Of those, about 20 have died. Then follows the English part about other areas since 2013.

Thank you, Jihad i Malmo. Now let's hear from Vlad Tepes, who has reports from around the world during the period September 4-17. It's all here, Folks from the latest terror attack by Boko Haram in Nigeria to terror roundups in Western Australia.

And if that's not bad enough, the Pope is  going to Albania in a few days and he has already been warned that ISIS may try to take him out there.

You kind of get the picture. As the naive liberals like to say, "Think globally." It's not just Iraq and Syria. It is virtually everywhere.

Former Orange County Muslim Cleric Announces Support for ISIS

Hat tip Jihad Watch, Investigative Project on Terror, MEMRI, Vlad Tepes, and Central Ohioans Against Terrorism

Muslim Brotherhood cleric Wagdy Ghoneim, a former cleric from the Orange County Islamic Institute who was kicked out of the country, has announced his support for ISIS. In the video, Ghoneim also denies the reality of the beheadings by ISIS calling it "photoshop" and decries the dumping of the body of exalted Usama bin Laden into the sea. Jihad Watch has the story.

Here via MEMRI with English sub-titles is the video.

Here is some more background on Ghoneim from Central Ohioans Against Terrorism.

Ghoneim, it should be noted, made a speaking appearance at the infamous Noor Islamic Cultural Center near Columbus, Ohio, a place with links to several individuals involved in Islamic terror. It is also the same entity which supported the family of Rifqa Bary, an apostate from Islam who ran off to Florida and today lives in an undisclosed location for fear of her life.

Below is a court document from the 9th Judicial Circuit Court in Florida from the Bary case, in which the dubious connections of the Noor Islamic Cultural Center are outlined. Among the names linked to the mosque are Ghoneim, Yusuf al Qaradawi, Siraj Wahhaj, MPAC Director Salam Al Marayati, Salah Sultan, Edina Lekovic, and Muzammil Siddiqi, the head imam of the Orange County (CA) Islamic Center in Garden Grove. The document makes the case that Bary had every reason to fear her family and their circle at the Noor Center.

Siraj Wahhaj
Referred to America as "a filthy garbage can."

Of course, Ghoneim's problems with the US authorities did not prevent CAIR from supporting him at the time. The below link from the Investigative Project on Terrorism has a reference to words of support from none other than CAIR's LA director, Hussam Ayloush.

 "Following Ghoneim’s arrest, CAIR Southern California Executive Director Hussam Ayloush defended him: “[t]he whole Muslim community today is under a microscope of scrutiny. Committing a mistake that would invite a slap on the wrist for anyone else could lead to prison or deportation for a Muslim.”

Discover the Networks has more on Ghoneim and his support from Ayloush, in addition to vocal support from Shakeel Syed, who is the head of the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California and an outspoken (sort of) supporter of the so-called Irvine 11 during their successful prosecution  for disrupting the speech of the Israeli ambassador to the US at UC Irvine in 2010.

Syed is the man with duct tape across his mouth between two defendants

Now that Ghoneim has come out with his rant, it is useful to look back on who his contacts, associates, and supporters were when he was spreading his hate and poison in our country. It's called connecting the dots.

Joe Biden (Again) A Poor Choice of Words

Just about every time Joe Biden opens his mouth he uses "a poor choice of words". So it was again that he referred to money lenders who have exploited military personnel as "shylocks".

"That's a big f-----' deal."

Of course, Biden is an easy target, low-lying fruit, as they say. I only wish Abe Foxman would spend more time addressing Islamic anti-Semitism, which he usually studiously avoids.

Chuck Hagel and Martin Dempsey Bring Confusion to Senate

" A tour de force"

Today, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel testified in front of the Senate Armed Services  Committee on the ISIS situation. It seems they raised more questions than they answered. All in all, it was a truly remarkable performance.

One issue was President Obama's desire to fund, equip and train those moderate Syrian rebels that are supposed to be out there somewhere. To that, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) asked Hagel what had changed since Obama had recently described them as "farmers, doctors and pharmacists" ill-equipped to take on Assad's army. To that Hagel replied that the urgent situation of the present was what had changed (I am paraphrasing), which did not address the question about the rebels that the administration wants to aid. Though  vehemently denied by Senator John McCain last night on Sean Hannity's show, it is now reported that the Free Syrian Army (the "good guys") has made a non-aggression pact with ISIS. The senators were understandably skeptical about what good could be expected of these forces or the Iraqi army.

General Dempsey also made headlines today when he revealed that if the current policies being followed in Iraq and Syria are not sufficient to defeat ISIS, he may be forced to ask the president for ground troops, which Obama just days ago emphatically stated was not an option-a  great intelligence coup for ISIS, I might add. Dempsey also confused everybody by saying that there was "no military solution".

So why are we all here?
