AG Eric Holder: Citizens can’t use zoning laws to block mosques

Originally posted on Refugee Resettlement Watch:

More evidence of the stealth jihad?  You betcha!

I guess what Holder is saying is that gobbling up land, overcrowding roads, and overloading sewer and water systems is O.K. if it is done for Allah.  Note that this has stemmed from cases in Minnesota (the first state to fall to Islam?).

Hey, let’s distract them with the ISIS crisis while we establish the caliphate right here in America!

And, this is what I would like to know—where are the environmentalists who have spent decades putting land use laws in place?

FromAmerican Thinker(Hat tip Judy)—Holder Issues Fatwa:

The Grand Mufti of the Department of Social Justice (aka, DOJ) has issued a fatwa prohibiting states from using zoning laws to deny building permits for Islamic “culture centers” — Mosques with “youth centers.”

9/11 hijackers funding: names and numbers

Originally posted on Money Jihad:

Follow the money

If you follow the money, the men in the middle of the disbursing of funds to the 9/11 hijackers were United Airlines Flight 175 hijacker-pilot Marwan al-Shehhi and a UAE-based computer specialist Ali Abdul Aziz Ali (Ali), who ultimately received the money from his uncle, 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Muhammad (KSM).

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Al Qaeda was able to raise about $30 million a year, mostly from zakat and sadaqa from wealthy Arab donors and other supportive Muslims around the world. The money was funneled through Islamic charities—often charitable foundations backed directly by the Saudi government—and through hawala, the traditional Islamic system of transferring money without physically having to transfer cash. The same methods continue being used to fund Al Qaeda and its offshoots today.

Of that $30 million, $10-$20 million was estimated by the 9/11 Commission to have been given annually to the Taliban. The…

Islamist damage control – Safe Spaces revisited

Originally posted on Cultural Jihad:

… a “Trojan horse” with a goal to negatively influence U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies operations. 

The threat posed by ISIS and recent news reports of Americans being recruited to join the jihad overseas has presented a major problem for Islamists in the United States – increased scrutiny of mosques.   Despite a successful campaign to hinder NYPD’s anti-terror efforts,  Muslim special interest groups, such as the Council on American–Islamic Relations CAIR and Muslim Public Affairs Council  (MPAC,)  are seeing ground lost as law enforcement and counter-terror agencies place their sights back on suspected mosques. 

Having American Muslims run off to be jihadis with a group that beheads  American journalists is a public relations nightmare for U.S. based Islamists.   The U.S. is the “cash cow” for Islamist fund raising – funds that frequently support terrorist activities in the Middle East.   Mosques in the U.S. are critical to the…

Thirteen Years Later … anger still

Originally posted on Cultural Jihad:

It’s the eve before the 13th anniversary of the Islamic terror attacks on America . I’m sure there will be memorial and remembrance ceremonies across the nation, but there seems to be very little mention of them in the media today.  My local paper has nothing – same with local TV websites – I hope this is not part of a nationwide trend.  The visions I saw 13 years ago are as clear today as they were then.

I wrote the following last year.  Please feel free to share.

14 million refugees in the Middle East: utter disaster

Originally posted on Refugee Resettlement Watch:

The brilliant and knowledgeable David P. Goldman writes in PJ Media:

There are always lunatics lurking in the crevices of Muslim politics prepared to proclaim a new Caliphate; there isn’t always a recruiting pool in the form of nearly 14 million displaced people (11 million Syrians, or half the country’s population, and 2.8 million Iraqis, or a tenth of the country’s population)….Many of them will have nothing to go back to. When people have nothing to lose, they fight to the death and inflict horrors on others. That is what civilizational decline looks like in real time.

Goldman has been predicting this kind of disaster in the Middle East for years.  He also writes under the pen name of Spengler after Oswald Spengler, a German historian who is best known for his book, Decline of the West.  Goldman continues:

The Arab states are failed states, except for the…

“Sharia law is not tolerated on German soil

Last week we reported on a story from Wuppertal, Germany about a group of Muslims photographed with “Sharia Police” vests.  According to several news accounts,  a Salafist group was patrolling the streets to recruit new members and lecture people they determined were violating  Sharia law.   The story was featured on a number websites and blogs, some sites even implying that the photograph was proof of an established Islamic “No Go” zone in Wuppertal.  We noted that the reported actions were considered illegal and criminal charges were being considered against the group.

WND: MN Rep. Michele Bachmann talks about home grown Somali Jihadists

Originally posted on Refugee Resettlement Watch:

Once again, reporter Leo Hohmann at World Net Daily does a very thorough report on the refugee program and the Minnesota Somali Jihadists we are raising.  See our comments on two earlier articles by Hohmann here and here.

Rep. Michele Bachmann: It is willful blindness.

World Net Daily (hat tip: Deb).  Emphasis below is mine:

Political correctness and a “willful blindness” are preventing the FBI from rooting out Islamic jihadists that continue to make headlines in her home state of Minnesota, says Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann.

In an exclusive interview with WND, Bachmann responded to news this week that two Somali-Americans from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area had left to fight with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS. One had obtained a security clearance at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, where he held a job cleaning jets for Delta Airlines. Both men died on the battlefield in Syria.

Video: Oxford Union Debate on Islam in Full – مناظرة مجلس إتحاد أوكسفورد حول الإسلام كاملة

Originally posted on The Muslim Issue:

Debate: This House believes Islam is a religion of peace

This debate occurred in the House of Oxford Union on May 23, 2013, the day after the Woolwich incident in London, in which a British soldier was murdered by two Muslims groomed under Anjem Choudary.

The motion of the debate was “The House believes that Islam is a religion of peace”.

This video was translated into Arabic and uploaded for mere educational and non-commercial purposes.

In a timely debate, held just 24 hours after the religiously motivated incident in Woolwich, the Union considered the question of the nature of Islam.

Proposition speaker Matthew Handley started the debate by grounding it in recent events, deploring the previous day’s “reprehensible act in Woolwich”, a sentiment that he was sure would be shared by Muslims around the world.

Handley continued by separating the religion of Islam from the individuals who “violently hijack faith for violent and maniacal ends” and maintained that the Qur’an…

US State Department: UN has chosen several thousand Syrians for resettlement to America

Marie Harf at the US State Department sending out the first signals! The Syrians are coming!

As I predicted yesterday, it is coming—the announcement that we will be taking several thousand Syrian permanent refugees starting in a few weeks.  The new fiscal year begins on October 1.

I’m using the word “permanent” for a reason.  Some of the Syrians going to Europe are only going to be allowed to stay until the conflict is resolved, but our refugees are permanent.

From Middle East Monitor.  State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said this apparently in response to a question:

The United States has resettled 166 Syrians since the outbreak of the Syrian Revolution in 2011, a State Department official said on Thursday.

Marie Harf, US state department deputy spokeswoman, said during her daily press briefing, “The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) began in…

The Pluralism Project – rewriting history at Harvard

Originally posted on Cultural Jihad:

… that Muslims actually discovered America.

The Pluralism Project of Harvard University was started in 1991,with the stated mission, “… to help Americans engage with the realities of religious diversity through research, outreach, and the active dissemination of resources.”  It tends to focus on interfaith and non-Christian religions, featuring a sizeable amount of research and information pertaining to Islam.  A section titled, “The First American Muslims” includes:

The historical roots of Islam in America are complex and contested. Some historians argue that Muslim explorers may have come to this continent long before Christopher Columbus, with the earliest estimates dating to the 12th century. Many contend that Muslims played a vital part in numerous European expeditions to the Americas, both as mapmakers and as guides: Estevancio of Azamor, a Moroccan guide who landed in Florida in 1539, is often cited as the first documented Muslim in America.

A Couple of Random Thoughts on Islamic Jihad

Originally posted on Terror Trends Bulletin:

1. There are now reports that as many as 800 French Muslims are fighting with the Islamic State. This figure is added to an estimate of 300 from the US, 500 from the UK, 400 from Germany, 150 from Australia and 130 from Austria. There is a report of 22 from one mosque in Denmark alone. Estimates indicate that fully 10% of IS fighters are Turks, which would put the number at 2,000.

Little Tunisia says that 1,300 of its citizens are fighting with IS. There are of course known Chechans, Malaysians and Indonesians fighting for IS (a mosque in Indonesia was distributing IS recruiting literature).

And let’s not forget that Boko Haram, Abu Sayyaf and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula have all pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.

This isn’t happening spontaneously. All of these Jihadis didn’t just all of a sudden visit a web site and decide to drop everything and head to Iraq and Syria.
