Detainee Transfer Announced

The Department of Defense announced today the transfer of Muhammed Murdi Issa Al-Zahrani from the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay to the Government of Saudi Arabia.

On Oct. 3, a Periodic Review Board consisting of representatives from the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, and State; the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence determined continued law of war detention of Al-Zahrani does not remain necessary to protect against a continuing significant threat to the security of the United States. As a result of that review, which examined a number of factors, including security issues, Al-Zahrani was recommended for transfer by consensus of the six departments and agencies comprising the Periodic Review Board.

“In the past two weeks, the Department of Defense has transferred seven detainees. These…

Dabiq: The Islamic State Wants the Battle of the End of Days

Dabiq-Burns-Cursader-Armies-IP_0
By Ryan Mauro:
The Islamic State’s latest video is directly challenging America to the battle of the apocalypse, which is to take place in Dabiq, Syria.

The gruesome video released by the Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) emphasizes that the beheading of Peter Kassig took place in the town of Dabiq, Syria. The town was chosen because of its significance in Islamic end-of-time prophecies about the time when the Mahdi and (the Islamic version of) Jesus will bring victory over those who oppose sharia.

The Islamic State named its English-language magazine “Dabiq” for the same reason. The group is telling Muslims that it is fulfilling prophecy, enticing them to participate in one of the most important moments in world history.

A secondary message is that Islamic State supporters should not worry about the military superiority of their enemy or the terrorist group’s setbacks because they will soon be made victorious with help from the Mahdi, Islam’s messianic figure, and Jesus (when he joins Islam, which he will according to Islamic prophecy).

“Here we are, burying the first American Crusader in Dabiq, eagerly waiting for the remainder of your armies to arrive,” says one Islamic State speaker.

The video features an excerpt from a sermon by Abu Musab al-Zaraqawi, the leader of the Islamic State’s predecessor, Al-Qaeda in Iraq, until he was killed by a U.S. airstrike on June 7, 2006.

“The spark has been lit here in Iraq, and its heat will continue to intensify…until it burns the Crusader armies in Dabiq,” Zaraqawi preached.

Then, for a third time, another Islamic State member says to the West, “We are waiting for you in Dabiq.”

The statements are a reference to prophecies in the hadith, the collection of sayings and actions attributed to Mohammed, the Holy Prophet of Islam.

One collector of the hadith, Sahih Muslim, states, “The Last Hour would not come until the Romans would land at al-A’maq or in Dabiq.”

When the Islamic State refers to President Obama as the “dog of Rome” in the video, they are making the case that the U.S. is the modern equivalent of the Roman Empire and American military action in the Middle East is the actualization of this prophecy.

The Islamic State draws a parallel between its own actions and the details of the prophecy. The hadith states that Dabiq will be controlled by the “best” Islamic soldiers from Mecca, Saudi Arabia. They will capture “Romans” (i.e., Americans), which will lead to a foreign attack.

The Brookings Institute points out that the Islamic State immediately presented its capture of Dabiq in April as part of this prophecy. The group’s supporters distributed pictures on social media of the seized hilltop with the text of the prophecy.

The Islamic State’s beheadings of Peter Kassig and the other Americans are not only justifiable acts of jihad in their opinion. They are also acts designed to provoke an assault on them as prophesized. In their eyes, a U.S. military response is actually desirable, as it fulfills this prophecy.

The prophecy states that the Romans will arrive at Dabiq and tell all the Muslims to stand aside so that they can fight only those Muslims who took the captives. The Muslims will then unite against the Romans. The Islamic State is hoping that this will come to fruition.

When the battle begins, according to the prophecy, about one-third of the Muslim forces will flee (“whom Allah will never forgive”), one-third will die as “excellent martyrs” and the remaining one-third will win the battle and then conquer Constantinople (now Istanbul, Turkey).

If Islamic State supporters believe this prophecy is about them, then they will not be discouraged by the current U.S. military action, high death tolls and desertions. They will actually be encouraged by it because they believe it will ultimately bring victory.

According to the prophecy, what follows this victory in Dabiq and Turkey is the appearance and final defeat of the Islamic version of the Antichrist, called the Dajjal, at the hands of (the Islamic) Jesus.

Senior Kurdish Leader Claims ISIS Has An “Army’ Of 200K — 7X, to 8X U.S. Intelligence Estimates

Patrick Cockburn, writing in the London newspaper, The Independent, (Nov. 16, 2014), writes that Fuad Hussein, the Chief of Staff to Kurdish President Massoud Barzani, told The Independent today (Sunday) that the Islamic State has recruited an ‘army’ of hundreds of thousands, far stronger than previous estimates by U.S. Intelligence. Barzani claimed that “the ability of ISIS to attack on many widely separated fronts in Iraq and Syria…at the same time — shows that the number of militant fighters is at least 200K.” “I’m talking about hundreds of thousands of fighters, because they are able to mobilize Arab young men in the territory they have taken.”

Episcopalians Lend D.C. Cathedral to Islamists, Gratis

Daily Caller, by Neil Munro, Nov. 12, 2014:

Leaders of the U.S. Episcopalian church aren’t asking anything in exchange for letting U.S.-based Islamist advocates of sharia law pray to Allah in the prestigious National Cathedral in Washington D.C., despite Christian persecution and murder surging across the Middle East.

“No, there is no quid pro quo here,” said Craig Stapert, the spokesman for the cathedral, where the Islamists will hold their prayers on Friday, Nov. 14.

Instead, “we’re looking for an opportunity to have prayer in our space, and to come together to see what it does for us as people of faith,” he told The Daily Caller.

The Islamists expected at the cathedral include representatives from the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). In 2009, both groups were confirmed as co-conspirators in a conspiracy to deliver funds to the Gaza-based Hamas jihad group, which regularly launches attacks to kill Jews in Israel.

This year, Hamas launched more than 4,000 rockets at Jews in Israel, often from within civilian areas.

Hamas is an affiliate of the Egypt-based Islamist group the Muslim Brotherhood, which was ousted from power in Egypt by huge public protest in 2012. Both CAIR and ISNA have close ties to the brotherhood movement.

“It is a shame that National Cathedral officials are apparently ignorant of or indifferent to the demonstrable ties of both CAIR and ISNA to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood,’ said Robert Spencer, the author of several best-selling books on Islam.

The officials’ acceptance of the Islamist groups “tells Muslim audiences in the Middle East that U.S. mainline churches have no interest in encouraging genuine Muslim reform, but rather are aiding and enabling Brotherhood front groups in the U.S.,” he said.

“It also shows that those front groups have made enormous progress in winning mainstream, establishment support,” Spencer added.

The cathedral is often used for national events, such as the prayer service for the 3,000 Americans killed by Islamic jihadis in 2001. In 2011, evangelicals were excluded from the anniversary commemorations. However, a powerful wind hit the cathedral, forcing a relocation of the event. (RELATED: Weather Smites Cathedral After Controversial Invite)

The decision by cathedral officials to invite Muslim prayer inside the Christian church was favorably described in a Nov. 11 article in The Washington Post.

The head of liturgy at the cathedral, Gina Campbell, invited the Muslim groups to pray in the church, and described the planned worship of Allah in a Christian church as “a beautiful thing.”

Orthodox Christians believe Allah is a false god, and that prayers to a false god distract humans from the opportunity to commune with the true God, and to earn a place in heaven.

Asked why prayer to Allah is a “beautiful” thing, Stapert responded that “I’m not a theologian… I’ll leave that to Gina to answer.”

By press time, neither Campbell nor the press secretary at the church’s national office responded to TheDC.

Campbell also acknowledged that the Muslim groups gain politically from the invite to pray in the most famous church in Washington, D.C.

The invited was arranged with the South African ambassador to the United States, Ebrahim Rasool.

“He got the cathedral — he understands what it represents in the United States; he made the connection to the power of a cathedral to shape relationships, community, conversation, to do deep, important things,” Campbell told The Washington Post.

Campbell “wants to say that prayer is a unique opportunity to build relationships and coming together in a safe way to explore the relationship between Christians and Muslims,” Stapert said.

“The folks who are in the Muslim leadership are hopeful that people will notice that it is possible to get along with other religions, and its not necessary to persecute or kill them,” Stapert whimpered.

“It is opening a door to conversation, and not claiming that other religion is trying to hurt the other one,” he said.

Under current Islamic law, Christians are not allowed to pray in mosques, and are not allowed to set up visible churches in Saudi Arabia and other Muslim-dominated countries. In nearly all Muslim countries, Christians are not allowed to proselytize, and conversion to Islam is a capital crime in many Muslim communities. In Israel, because of Muslim opposition, Jews are not allowed to pray on the Temple mount,  which was once occupied by a Jewish synagogue, then by a Christian church, and now by an Islamic mosque.

In many Muslim countries, such as Iraq, Syria, Libya and Egypt, and in northern Nigeria, Christians churches are bombed and burned by Muslims who cite Islamic law in justification.

In Africa, jihadi groups such as Boko Haram have killed many Christiansincluding Episcopalians. Christian groups have protested the murders, but U.S.-based Muslims groups have not used Muslim law to declare the jihad attacks as heretical, or “haram.”

In Iraq, Christians have been driven out of their home regions by jihadi groups, while people in the non-Christian Yezidi community have been murdered or sold as slaves by Muslims, who justify their actions with quotes from the Koran.

In response, some U.S.-based Muslim groups has criticized the Arab jihad groups, but have not condemned jihad warfare or the popular goal of a multinational, multi-ethnic Islamic theocracy, dubbed the caliphate.

In a caliphate, Christians and Jews are relegated to an apartheid-style lower status, dubbed “dhimmi.”

Stapert said he did not know about ISNA and CAIR, even though their official representative will be praying at his cathedral this week.

“Umm, that’s interesting,” Staper said when TheDC mentioned the 2009 court decision. “I know that there have been allegations about CAIR’s participation in a variety of things [but] I’m not an expert on CAIR.”

FSA hammered by Qatar-funded al-Nusra Front

An entire rumor industry sprung forth that Gaddafi’s demise was due to his declared intention to issue pan-African bullion gold dinars and silver dirhams and his political statement that Libya would begin rejecting fiat currency (ie: “Petro dollars”) as payment for Libyan export oil sales as part of a long standing desire to – if not outright undermine, – then at least chip away at, – the global economic hegemony of the US.

Watch Wilders’ Speech in Copenhagen on the 10th Anniversary of Theo Van Gogh’s Assassination

NER, By Jerry Gordon, Nov. 2, 2014:

Today is the 10th Anniversary of the assassination of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh  by an Islamikaze Mohammed Bouyeri, a Dutch Moroccan citizen, on the streets of Amsterdam. Van Gogh’s assassin, Bouyeri is held up as a “hero” by Dutch Muslims. Yesterday, we posted on how this day, a decade ago, changed the life of the  leader of the Dutch Freedom Party (PVV) the Hon. Geert Wilders and his family. Today marked the  day when, as a reaction to Van Gogh’s murder, Wilders was placed under 24/7 protection by the Royal Dutch Protective Service. That protection continues reflecting the death theats against Wilder’s life.That hasn’t deterred Wilders from becoming a vigorous critic of  political Islam and defender of the right to criticize a religion. A religion whose doctrine motivated Bouyeri to kill Van Gogh for his short film, Submission, about abuse and denial women’s rights under Islam.

NLTimes reported how Van Gogh’s death was commemorated today, The Netherlands marks Theo van Gogh’s  murder: 

The anniversary of Van Gogh’s death today will be marked with tributes. At 2.00pm a minute’s silence will be observed at Linnaeusstraat in Amsterdam where Van Gogh was killed. In Oosterpark the Willehalm Foundation organizes a commemoration at the Theo van Gogh monument De Schreeuw (The Scream). Robert Jan Kelder, the director of the Foundation Willehalm Instituut will hold a lecture entitled ‘Why Theo van Gogh was sacrificed.” The commemoration is an initiative of several organizations,  including the Friends of Pim Fortuyn Foundation.

Tonight TV Station RTL4 is broadcasting an interview with Lieuwe van Gogh, Theo’s son, about how his father’s murder affected him. NPO 2 is showing the political thriller “2/11 The Game of the Wolf” which chronicles the period after Van Gogh’s murder. The screenplay for this movie was written by Van Gogh’s friends Theodor Holman and Gijs van de Westelaken.

Wilders spoke about the impact of Van Gogh in a speech before the Danish Free Speech Society in Copenhagen  sponsored by Lars Hedegaard. Hedegaard is an embattled free speech advocate who fought off a would be assassin in an attempt on his life in February 2013. An assassin who was released on October 22, 2014 by Turkish authorities following a judical appeal after his arrest in April 2014.

Watch Wilders’ speech and discussion at the Danish Free Press Society dellivered at the Danish Parliament in Copenhagen, November 2, 2014. Note the comments and debates with Daniel Pipes, Wilders, Hedegaard on the question of  whether Islam can change following the speech.  You determine who won the debate.

 

Hon. Geert Wilders leader of the Dutch freedom Party (PVV)

Hon. Geert Wilders leader of the Dutch freedom Party (PVV)

Here is the text of Wilders’ speech at the Danish Parliment:

Dear friends,

I am happy to be in Copenhagen again.

It is always a pleasure to return to this wonderful city – the home of my good friend and fellow freedom fighter, the Danish hero Lars Hedegaard.

It is always a privilege to be in the capital of the brave Danish people.

And it is always an honor to be a guest of your great organization.

The Danish Free Press Society is a beacon of light. For Denmark, for Scandinavia, for the whole of Europe, and for the entire West. Your staunch defense of civil liberties, such as freedom of speech, serves as an inspiration for many, including myself and my party.

On a moment like this, when the free world is in mortal danger, an organization such as the Danish Free Press Society is needed more than ever.

Exactly ten years ago, today, my fellow countryman Van Gogh fell as a martyr of free speech.

I remember that morning very well. The press came to my office to ask for a reaction, but hardly anyone could believe that what had happened was really true. We all realized that the Netherlands would never be the same again. Unfortunately few lessons have been learned since that horrible day in 2004.

Islam claims that Muhammad was a prophet. But Muhammad was not a prophet; Theo van Gogh was a prophet.

Van Gogh saw what was coming. He spoke out forcefully against the danger of Islamization.

He had also just made a short movie, together with my then colleague Ayaan Hirsi Ali, about the plight of women in Islamic society. The movie was called “Submission.”

That is why he was murdered. His assassination should have been an alarm bell.

Van Gogh warned us in  strong language, as clear as the colors that his great-granduncle Vincent used when painting his landscapes.

He was a brave man. When he realized the danger of Islam, he did not run like a coward.

He would have hated to see how our freedom of speech has been restricted in the ten years since his death.

Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends, the more Islam we get, the less free our societies become. Not only because of the islamization but also because of the weak appeasers who call themselves politicians.

We are no longer allowed to crack jokes or draw cartoons if Islam feels insulted by it.

If you do so, your life is in danger, as Kurt Westergaard and Lars Vilks can testify. You might even get arrested, as happened a few years ago with the Dutch cartoonist Gregorius Nekschot.

Sure, the charges against Nekschot were later dropped. But if you value your life and if you prefer to avoid trouble, it is better not to do anything that might remotely insult Islam.

We are no longer allowed to tell statistical truths, as Lars Hedegaard experienced, when he referred to rape figures in Islamic families.

A murderer came to Lars’s door and the state authorities persecuted him for so-called hate speech. Sure, the Supreme Court eventually acquitted Lars. But if you value your life and if you prefer to avoid trouble, it is better to keep quiet.

We are no longer allowed to refer to scientific and historical research, as my friend, the brave Austrian human rights activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, experienced.

In a seminar on the historical figure of Muhammad, she mentioned that he had a crush on little girls and had sex with a 9-year old. That is the truth.

But Elisabeth was convicted, and her conviction was even upheld by the Appeals court. Once again, it is better to remain silent if you want to avoid trouble.

But Theo van Gogh did not remain silent. And neither did Kurt and Lars and Elisabeth and Robert and the Danish Free Press Society, and my party, the Party for Freedom in the Netherlands, and so many other freedom fighters in the West.

We speak out. We will never be silent. Because we love our country. Because we love our freedom. Because we refuse to live in slavery.

Because we believe that without liberty, life is not worth living.

Liberty and human dignity, that is what we stand for.

We are the torchbearers for freedom. We are the torchbearers for democracy.

We are the torchbearers for a civilization that is far superior than any other civilization on earth.

Last Summer, my home town, The Hague, witnessed scenes which brought back memories of the darkest period in our history, the Nazi era.

Sympathizers of the Islamic State paraded in our streets. They carried swastikas, they carried the black flags of ISIS. They shouted “Death to the Jews.”

Instead of rounding up these hatemongers, the authorities did nothing.

When we warn against Islam, the authorities call it hate speech and bring us to court. But when the grim forces of hatred march down our streets, the police look on and do not interfere. It is a disgrace. It is a scandal. It is intolerable.

Islam is waging a war against the free West.

Indeed, we are at war. Only fools can deny it. Islam has declared war on us.

America and its allies are currently bombing the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

Excellent.

My party supports this offensive. I am glad that Dutch and Danish F16s participate in it and that our two nations stand shoulder to shoulder in this endeavor. We should liquidate Abu Bakr Al-Bagdadi and the other criminals who are leading the Islamic State.

But we have to do more than that.

Far more important than fighting Islamic State abroad, is the fight to preserve our own security in our own countries, in the Netherlands, in Denmark, in all the other European and Western countries. It is our homes that we must defend.

It is just to bomb the Islamic State in the Middle East. But our first priority must be to protect our own nations, our own freedoms, our own people, our own children, here, at home

Recently, the Dutch authorities prevented some forty jihadis from leaving  our country, when they attempted to go to Syria to fight in the ranks of ISIS. Their passports were seized and they were sent home instead of jailed. These criminals now walk our streets and make them unsafe.

You may have heard that the jihadis who recently murdered soldiers in Canada were also people whom the authorities had previously prevented from leaving Syria and who were not arrested but allowed to go free on the street.

Blocking the exodus of those who want to wage Jihad elsewhere and not detain them is sheer stupidity.

Keeping them here as free people means that they will hit us here.

We must hasten their exit instead of preventing it. But we must never allow them to return. Therefore, we must reinstate national border controls.

Nothing is more important than first to protect our own countries from the Jihadis.

Let us restore our liberties, such as freedom of speech.

Let us defend our culture. Let us protect our people.

Let us make our nations free and safe again.

Let us be brave.

That is what we must do; that is our duty.

Let me ask you: Do our authorities actually do this?

Unfortunately not.

They fail to do their duty.

They fail to act accordingly.

They even lie to us. Everyday, we hear Western leaders repeat the sickening mantra that Islam is a religion of peace.

Whenever an atrocity is committed in the name of Islam, whenever someone is beheaded in Syria or Iraq, Barack Obama, David Cameron, my own Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and many of their colleagues rush to the television cameras to tell the world that it has nothing whatsoever to do with Islam. How stupid can you be?

Fortunately, the eyes of ever more people are opening to this reality.

In my country, a poll last June, showed that 65% of the Dutch are convinced that the Islamic culture does not belong in the Netherlands.

In France, 74% find Islam incompatible with French society.

In Britain, fewer than one in four think that following Islam is compatible with a British way of life. In Germany, over two thirds of the population think negatively about Islam.

Even in the Czech Republic, a country with hardly any Islamic population, almost two-thirds consider Islam a threat to society and 90% are afraid of it. And in Denmark 92% of your citizens believe Muslim immigrants should adopt Danish customs.

With every new terrorist crime, with every new attack, with every new beheading, it becomes clear to ever more people what the true nature of Islam is.

With every Islamic assault on our values, more and more people realize that Islam wants to conquer the world, that it is prepared to kill or enslave anyone who refuses to submit. And that it is ready to commit the biggest atrocities to achieve this goal.

My friends, we are gathered here today, because we are neither prepared to collaborate with evil, nor to appease it.

We say No to Islamic censorship. And No to the politicians who fail us.

During the past ten years, I have been living under constant police protection.

As you know, I am not the only one who has to live through this ordeal. Several people in this room are in the same situation. Our friends Lars and Kurt even came to stand eye to eye with fanatics who tried to slaughter them.

Of course – I repeat it wherever I go – of course, there are many moderate Muslims. I believe in moderate people, but I do not believe in a moderate Islam. There is only one Islam – the Islam of the Koran, the Hadith and the life of Muhammad, who was a terrorist and a warlord.

But even though there are many moderate Muslims, it is wrong to think that the moderates are a majority. They are not. A poll in the Netherlands gave shocking results. It is hard to believe, but almost three quarters of the Muslims in my country say that Dutch Muslims who go and fight in Syria are heroes. Can you believe it? Heroes!

And over two thirds of the Islamic population in the Netherlands consider the religious rules of Islam to be more important than our own democratic laws.

Equally terrifying was an article yesterday in the Dutch press stating that Mohammed Bouyeri, the murderer of Theo van Gogh, is still considered a hero today by hundreds of Dutch Muslims.

A few years ago, I called on Muslims to liberate themselves from the yoke of Islam, to choose for freedom. I wholeheartedly support Muslims who love freedom. So, I told them “Free yourselves. Leave Islam.” I still stand by this appeal. But this does not blind me to the present reality.

You may have heard that I will probably be brought to court again soon.

Three years ago, I was taken to court on hate crime charges. The court case lasted almost two years. Fortunately, I was acquitted.

But now, the Dutch judiciary is going after me again because I asked Dutch voters whether they want more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands.

Moroccans are the largest Islamic population group in the Netherlands. In The Netherlands the Moroccan problem is the problem of Islam.

I referred to Moroccans, not because I have anything against Moroccans but because they are overrepresented in Dutch crime and welfare statistics. They also account for three quarters of all Dutch Muslims who leave for Syria to wage jihad. No-one in the Netherlands wants more Moroccans.

As I said, our leaders still refuse to defend our freedoms because they are either cowards or appeasers. This is why the task of defending freedom has now fallen on us. On you, on me, on ordinary citizens.

To this end, I have established the International Freedom Alliance (IFA).

We want IFA to be the shield  for all those who refuse to submit to Islamic tyranny.

The mission of IFA is to stop the Islamization of non-Islamic countries and to fight for the preservation of our freedom and democracy.

We want to stand firm. We want to preserve our civilization for our children and grandchildren. Because there is nothing more precious than liberty and freedom. But it has a price. And the price can be high. Sometimes a man must give all he can.

Our political leaders may fail us. But we, my friends, we will not fail.

There is a path we shall never choose, and that is the path of submission.

This is why we say: Yes to freedom! No to tyranny!

IFA aims to be a network of resistance fighters in all the countries threatened by Islam.

Friends,  I have good news from the Netherlands.

Today, the popularity of my party, the Party for Freedom, is at a high. An opinion poll published this morning shows that we have by far become the largest party in the Netherlands, with almost 20 per cent of the vote. 1 out of 5 Dutchmen would vote for the PVV today.

The policies that we stand for are also getting more popular than ever.

We want to stop all immigration from Islamic countries.

We want to stimulate voluntary re-emigration to Islamic countries.

We want to expel all criminals with dual citizenship and deprive them of their Dutch nationality.

We want to de-Islamize our nation.

Dear Friends, there is a lot of work to do. We, the defenders of freedom and security, have an historic duty.

Our generation has been entrusted with a huge task: To oppose Islam and keep the flame of liberty burning.

I say it without exaggeration: the future of human civilization depends on us. Now is a time when everyone in the West must do their duty. We are writing history here.

So, let us do our duty.

Let us stand with a happy heart and a strong spirit.

Let us go forth with courage and save freedom!

Thank you.

Hezbollah’s Pre-Schooler’s Guide to War: A Peek Inside Mahdi Mag

Being a librarian, I am exposed to published atrocities almost every single day. From the most pointless tabloids to titles such as “50 Words You Need to Know to Sound Smart.” Yet, July 7th brought with it the most despicable print I have seen since reading a few pages from Mein Kampf. Below are the pictures I took of my first encounter with Mahdi Magazine with commentary; because well, I can’t “resist” commenting.

Mahdi is a monthly magazine published by the Hezbollah-affiliated Mahdi Scouts. The above cover is that of its 7th issue; as it says on the cover, it is made for preschoolers aged 4-7. Right from the title are the words “Ana ‘Uqawim” or I resist; and they’re not talking about resisting the urge of playing candy crush over studying or whatever a preschooler magazine usually preaches. No, they’re talking about “resisting the enemy.”
