Civilization Jihad at the Ground Level in Southern California

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, Aug. 13, 2017:

Speaking truth about the danger Islam poses to civilized society is improper social etiquette in many parts of America these days – especially among America’s elites.

Yet a few dare to do it.  Understanding the Threat (UTT) certainly does.

The folks at the Counter Jihad Coalition in Southern California are also unafraid to speak truth in love about Islam.  They do so boldly on a regular basis.

Led by Steve Amundson, the Counter Jihad Coalition (CJC) operates under a simple premise:  “Get the truth and facts about Islam to the general public.”

Steve Amundson on the streets of southern California speaking truth about Islam

The group goes out every other Saturday to various public places in southern California including on the streets, in malls, and elsewhere to hand out pamphlets, engage people, and speak truth about Islam. Amundson says the group passes out between 1500 and 2000 pamphlets each weekend they are out.

UTT’s President, John Guandolo, had the pleasure of interviewing Mr. Amundson for this week’s UTT Radio Show.  The full show can be found at

Steve Amundson told UTT he does what he does out of love of liberty and a desire to see America remain for future generations.

But the truth always offends those who do not have it.

A number of people thank Amundson and the Counter Jihad Coalition for their courage and perseverance in speaking truth, but some people – muslim and non-muslim alike – are not as encouraging or receptive.

Amundson says, “Some of these Christians who believe the interfaith dialogue groups are the way to go, you just can’t get through to a lot of them.”

He goes on to say, “Its the muslim usually that want to tie us up all night long talking, and our real purpose is to get the word out to as many people that don’t know anything about Islam. So we try to minimize our discussions or debates with the muslims so we can get back to passing out brochures to people who want some information and want to know what the truth is.”

What is probably shocking to many people who are unaware of Islamic beliefs is how some muslims respond.  In THIS VIDEO of CJC interacting with muslims in Santa Monica, California, the muslims openly state their support for killing those who commit adultery and chopping off hands for stealing.



Last weekend, the Counter Jihad Coalition met with significant resistance from muslims, and Steve Amundson had to call in backup from mall officials and police.

Steve tells the story this way:  “We’ve had a few violent outbreaks when we go out to do our public outreach – a couple of times up in L.A. and then just last Saturday actually.  At a local shopping mall, muslims showed up and started yelling and shouting, and more muslims joined in with them and they were right in our face yelling and shouting.  So I decided at that point in time, its time to call the security.  So I called the security.  They were there really fast, along with LA Sheriff’s deputies.  I said to the deputy, ‘Why don’t you usher these violent, boisterous muslims out of here and everything will be fine?’  He said, ‘Well we’re waiting to see what mall management wants to do’…Well, the mall manager came over and talked to me, and he said ‘Steve, we’re going to have to ask you to close up shop early today.’  I said ‘Wait a minute, I’m approved, you approved my application, and you’re asking me to leave?  You’re not going to escort those unruly muslims out of here?  Everything was fine until they started yelling and shouting and the crowd grew.’  He said, ‘No, we’re asking you to close up because they told us they have a right to be here and they will not leave until (you’re) gone.’”

That – ladies and gentlemen – is Civilization Jihad by OUR hands.  Muslims who create a public disturbance are not removed because they refuse to leave until the man saying things about Islam they do not like is removed – thus the Islamic Law of Slander is enforced in California by sworn officers of the law and mall management.  That is how Civilization Jihad works.

An article about this incident can be found on JihadWatch here.

As a reminder to our readers:  On November 4, 2010, a citizen and Marine named Randy McDaniels attended an event at the University of Central Florida hosted by the Muslim Students Association (Muslim Brotherhood) and featured speakers Jamal Badawi (Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas) and Edina Lekovic (Communications Director for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim Public Affairs Council).  The muscle in the room was Hamas doing business as “CAIR” (Council on American Islamic Relations).

When McDaniels asked simple probing questions, he was warned to be quiet by a university official, and then dragged out of the room by several uniformed police officers.

A video of the event can be seen here and UTT strongly recommends readers take the time to view it (4 minutes).  An article written about the incident for Breitbart by John Guandolo can be read here.

What do these two incidents, separated by 7 years, demonstrate?

The lack of training for local law enforcement about the Islamic Movement in the United States, the Muslim Brotherhood’s network, and sharia leaves local officials wide open to being easily duped into taking actions that serve the objectives of our enemies, infringe on the liberties of Americans, and impose sharia inside the United States without ever having to go into a courtroom.

UTT encourages citizens to get involved by getting trained – especially via UTT’s Train the Trainer program – and taking actions including those encouraged by the Counter Jihad Coalition.

Boldly speak truth in love about the real threat of Islam in our society today.

Thanks to the many Patriots who do so, and especially to Steve Amundson and his team at CJC (

FBI Probing 17 Armed Middle Eastern Men ‘Chanting ‘Allahu-Akbar Type Stuff’ in CA Desert

IMGUR/Victory Valley News Group

IMGUR/Victory Valley News Group

Breitbart, by Adelle Nazarian March 29, 2016:

The FBI is now investigating a group of 17 Middle Eastern men camping in the Mojave Desert who were briefly detained on Easter Sunday, then released, after a 911 phone call was made to the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station alleging that they had fired over 100 shots in the area.

“They were up all night chanting ‘Allah akbar’-type stuff,” an unidentified police officer was heard saying on an audio recording from a police scanner that was posted online.

(Update: The area is near several military installations, including Edwards Air Force Base.)

According to the local newspaper Victorville Daily Press, a witness hiking in the Deep Creek Hot Springs region that same day described what he saw:

I was about 50 feet away from the hot tub and saw them fire about six to eight shots. I could see them near the hot tubs talking and shooting. I said, “I’m out of here, these guys are crazy,” and decided to leave. As I started heading up the trail I could see them shooting through the canyons. They were shooting toward the hills where people were camping.

Officials say the men were cooperative as they were detained and searched after a helicopter was able to locate them from up above. On Monday, San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Jodi Miller reportedly said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times that none of the men “interviewed yesterday were identified as terrorists” and noted that they were cooperative with deputies.

The local CBS News affiliate in Los Angeles reports that several handguns, a rifle, and a shotgun were found on the men, several of which were described on the police scanner as wearing turbans.

However, a records check found all the weapons were registered with the exception of the single rifle, which reportedly did not have a serial number because it was purchased in parts.

Two images showing the detained men were posted to a chat forum and were later picked up by Russian state-run outlet RT.

The group of men were eventually released because they reportedly had no outstanding warrants or criminal records and there was no evidence that a crime had been committed. However, the FBI is reportedly working with local authorities to determine if any crimes were committed.

The area the men were in encompasses San Bernardino County, where the devastating December 2 terrorist attack took place.

On Monday, the FBI announced that they were able to successfully crack the iPhone used by Syed Rizwan Farook, the radical Islamic terrorist who carried out the mass shooting with his Pakistani-born wife Tashfeen Malik. The terrorist attack left 14 dead and 22 wounded.
An Israeli firm’s technology was used to break the iPhone’s supposedly unbreakable encryption.

Feds’ San Bernardino Narrative Disintegrates as Picture of Terror Network Becomes Clear

The ISIS Study Group, Dec. 8, 2015:

From the start the ISIS Study Group has maintained that the San Bernardino Shooting was the work of a cell based in Southern California’s Inland Empire (reference – “The Flames of War Come to San Bernardino, CA”). As the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) attempted to push the narrative that this was a case of “workplace violence” that resulted from an argument at a Christmas party, we continued to dig into Sayid Farooq and Tashfeen Malik’s terror links. In “Some Interesting San Bernardino Developments” we laid out Farooq’s links to the Islamic Society and that organization’s deep ties to known terrorists and attacks on US soil. We followed that up with “San Bernardino UPDATE as of 06 DEC 15-More Terror Links,” which covered Tashfeen and her father’s ties to jihadist ideology and ties to Pakistan’s jihadist community. The Feds continue to cling to their faulty narrative, but the tighter they hold onto this fantasy more of the truth slips out.

So what’s new? Well, the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has been attempting to block journalists (international journalists-members of the American MSM don’t seem to care) from doing additional digging into Tashfeen’s associations with the Lal Masjid’s (aka “Red Mosque”). Something tells us we were on to something regarding Abdul Aziz and his wife’s direct links to the Islamic State (IS) External Operations Division – specifically the late-Junaid Hussein and later his widow Sally Ann Jones and acolyte Siful Sujan, who has also been in contact with Sayid Farooq. Okay, so Who’s Siful Sujan, again? Susan (aka “Abu Khalid al-Bengali”) was a Syria-based subordinate of Junaid Hussein. When Hussein died, Sujan began to take over some of his portfolio to include alternative attack planning by using individuals from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. He’s also the primary facilitator for dual-Bengali/Canadian citizen Ahmed Tamim Choudray in support of the effort to establish an official IS province in Bangladesh. More importantly, Sujan continues to maintain a close relationship with Hussein’s widow Sally. Sayid’s ties with a close associate of Garland Shooter Ibrahim Simpson identified as Mujahid Miski adds further weight to this assessment.

According to our sources, Sayid and Tashfeen had been in regular contact with Sujan, Sally and more recently an IS External Operations member identified as “Ahmed al-Ahmed,” who was tasked by Sujan to provide Sayid’s cell with everything they would need. The $28,500 USD deposited to Sayid’s bank account two weeks prior to the San Bernardino Shooting was likely sent by Ahmed to help cover his cell’s expenses. The IS External Operations Division likes to us a series of different methods to send money to lone-wolves and cells tasked with carrying out operations abroad – usually a combination of money being wired via Hawala (think of it like an Islamic “Western Union”), picked up then transferred to a specific account. In this case the money may have even been taken out as a loan by Sayid. He had converted $10,000 into cash and withdrew the money at a Union Bank branch in San Bernardino. He followed that up a few days before the shooting with at least another three transfers of $5,000. If this isn’t a big indicator of this being planned, we don’t know what is. We also

know that Sayid had communicated with his IS contacts through someone else’s laptop and video game system at a third home he frequented daily. Oh yeah, and a day or two before the attack Sayid was in a bar (they usually do have a vice of some sort – check out “San Bernardino UPDATE as of 06 DEC 15-More Terror Links” to see what we mean) making anti-American comments, something to the effect of “Americans are the real terrorists.” People may hate on Fox News and Breitbart, but they’ve been the only ones in the American MSM doing any real substantive work to uncover this terror network. Perhaps the other news agencies in our country should start doing their jobs for once? You’d be surprised what doing one’s job instead of pushing an agenda to protect some elected official can do to boost credibility. Just a thought.

Which brings us to Enrique Marquez – the guy who sold Sayid the assault rifles. He knew Sayid for 8 years and stayed in touch with him after moving away in 2012. Marquez was the the one who provided Sayid with the rifles, and was so distraught after learning about the attack that he drank excessively prior to checking himself in a mental hospital. According to our sources, he as acting “suicidal,” although he hadn’t yet progressed to where he actually had a plan to off himself. He’s currently on suicide watch and speaking with the FBI. None of the money withdrawn by Sayid in the two weeks leading up to the attack went to Marquez nor is he considered a suspect. However, he can shed some light on Sayid’s mindset. For instance, we know that Sayid and been acquiring weapons and ammunition for a total of 15 purchases made from NOV 11 – JUL 15. The majority of the purchases went to the Riverside residence while the last two went to the Redlands location. Four purchases shipped to a location in San Diego spanning NOV 11 – JAN 12. This was a very deliberate effort that spanned years. In other words, this attack wasn’t because of some argument.

The FBI was “Captain Obvious” when LA Field Office Assistant Director David Bowdich said the following (from CNN):

They “were radicalized and have been for quite some time,” Bowdich said.

“The question for us,” he told reporters Monday, “is how, and by whom, and where.”

Oh but we do know who and why – we’ve laid it out for you. They know it too – but are trying to draw this out in order to minimize the damage when it finally does come out that there’s still an entire cell Sayid and Tasfheen were associated with – there are at least six other members of this cell who remain at-large. According to our sources, there were actually follow-on attacks (first responders were supposed to also be targeted) that were supposed to have taken place but those were delayed by the IS External Operations Division. Why? We suspect it had to do with the poor performance of the attack carried out by Sayid and Tashfeen. Not to minimize the loss of life, but IS was expecting more casualties than what was produced. The delay was likely done to conduct an After Action Report (AAR), correct deficiencies identified in the San Bernardino Shooting then resume operations when things have died down. The area Sayid’s cell has chosen to operate places it in close proximity to LA and Las Vegas – both of which represent great potential targets for any jihadist. DHS is intentionally trying to downplay the threat, but we’re not going to let them off the hook. No, they deserve to have someone holding their feet to the fire to ensure they actually do their jobs and protect the most important thing – the lives of our fellow Americans.

It is ‘increasingly likely’ that San Bernardino killers were planning more attacks but their future targets are still unknown, security sources say

San Bernardino UPDATE as of 06 DEC 15- More Terror Links

The ISIS Study Group, Dec. 6, 2015:

There’s been a lot more information that our staff has been obtaining as well as foreign media. Wouldn’t it be nice if the American MSM did their jobs for once instead of defend the Obama administration every chance they get? In our articles “The Flames of War Come to San Bernardino, CA” and “Some Interesting San Bernardino Developments,” we discussed how this was a cell-based attack with Sayid likely the one in contact with foreign facilitators – and our strong suspicions that at least one was a representative of the Islamic State’s (IS) External Operations Division. Our latest article (“Some Interesting San Bernardino Developments”) laid out the latest and greatest on Sayid and his jihadist connections (e.g. the Islamic Society); in this article we will be getting more into his wife Tashfeen Malik, her family and their connections to terror.

Source: The ISIS Study Group

The reason we decided to dig into Sayid Farooq’s collection of literature found at his residence (the works of Sayid Qutb in particular) and ties to the Islamic Society’s Corona-Norco branch (the Islamic Society of Corona-Norco aka “ISCN”) in “Some Interesting San Bernardino Developments” is because we suspect his jihadist associations played a large part in how he was “matched” with Tashfeena. Our sources in the San Bernardino Police Department report that Sayid’s father stated his son had begun distancing himself from his family as far back as 2010 and that they didn’t really know Tashfeena all that well either. We can’t say that we’re surprised given how Sayid’s family have been going to the Islamic Center of Riverside (a real-deal moderate institution) in favor of the ISCN. That happened two years ago. You know what also happened two years ago? Sayid traveled to Saudi Arabia to meet his wife who he had first met online. In fact his family noticed he had become increasingly “conservative” since his trip. As previously stated in yesterday’s article, we assess that it was likely a foreign facilitator who recruited him that “paired” the two up for a marriage. Furthermore, we suspect that Sayid met with this individual during his time in Saudi Arabia. Our staff is working with our Saudi Mabahith contacts to identify this individual. We’d like to assume the FBI is already doing this themselves, but the vibe we’re getting from our Department of Homeland Security (DHS) peeps implies this isn’t happening.

So who is Tashfeena? To understand her, you have to know about her father. The UK Daily Mail put out a great read on her father (the link is just below this section) , identified as Gulzar Ahmed Malik. Tashfeena is originally from Karor Lal Esan located in Punjab Province, Pakistan. From what we understand she relocated with her father to Saudi Arabia 25 yrs ago. Now sometime 5 or 6 yrs ago she returned to Pakistan to study at Bahauddin Zakariya University in Multan to become a Pharmacist. This area is interesting because it has a long history of being a hotbed for al-

Qaida (AQ) and Lashkar-e Tayyiba (LT) recruitment, and more recently IS. She went there because that’s where she felt “comfortable.” Why? It has to do with the militant Islam her father had been drilling into her head while in Saudi Arabia. Its also highly likely that Gulzar had a trusted associate “look after her” – and that individual likely has affiliations to one of the above-mentioned jihadist organizations. Another interesting tidbit is that Tashfeena has two brothers and two sisters related to a former provincial Minister identified as Ahmed Ali Aulak – both from daddy’s side of the family. Anyways, her father still lives in Riyadh. Now, our Mahabith contacts did say that neither he or Tashfeena were considered a “threat” – although they did caveat that with a notice of their own stretched resources due to having to deal with the Iranian, IS and AQAP threats inside their borders.

The UK Daily Mail also dug up some additional terror links that add even more to this case than what we had already identified on our end. So in addition to the links Sayid has to the Islamic Society and online jihadists, Tashfeen and her father have been directly-linked to having frequented the Islamabad-based Lal Masjid or “Red Mosque”-run Jamia Hafsa Madrasa for women. So what’s the Red Mosque and why should you care? Well, for starters its well-known for recruiting suicide bombers (e.g. 07 JUL 05 London Bombings). For the uninitiated, the Red Mosque was founded by Maulana Qari Abdullah in 1965. Abdullah taught radical Islam and preached jihad during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. After the Soviets left Afghanistan, the Mosque continued to function as a center for radical Islamic learning and housed several thousand male and female students in adjacent seminaries. Since its founding, the Red Mosque was frequented by members of the Pakistani military (PAKMIL) and the government. Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, the Army Chief of Staff who would go on to successfully lead a coup that saw his rise to the presidency, was a close friend of Abdullah. More interesting is the fact that the Mosque itself is located near the main headquarters of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). In fact, several ISI members are known to go there for prayers (check out “Afghanistan: A Case Against a Residual US Military Presence” if you want to know why this is a problem).

Abdullah was assassinated at the Mosque in 1998. His sons Abdul Aziz and Abdul Rashid assumed responsibility for the institution, where they would develop a close relationship with the late-Osama bin Laden. Under the new leadership, the Red Mosque’s involvement in terrorist activities increased significantly. These last few years have seen Aziz speak quite favorably of IS, which he came out to publicly announce his support of last year. Although Aziz claims to have no “direct-links” to IS despite fully supporting Baghdadi, he had actually maintained regular contact with the late-senior IS External Operations Division member Junaid Hussein as well as his associate Riyad Khan up until their deaths. We suspect that Hussein’s

widow Sally Ann Jones and the infamous Siful Sujan continue to maintain contact with him. We talked about both Sally and Sujan in our 11 NOV piece “Bangladesh’s ISIS Problem.” Aziz has been able to export IS’ ideology to the masses in Pakistan thanks to the Red Mosque and his network of madrasas affiliated with it. We know that both Aziz and Tashfeena have the same ethnic background, but it remains unclear if they’re of the same tribe – at least for now. However, our sources have informed us that Tashfeena had participated in multiple events that would’ve placed her in direct contact with Majida Younis, who is Aziz’s wife. Another indicator that she was already part of the jihadist community should’ve been the fake address she gave in her visa application. Come to think of it, if she fell through the cracks like this, then how can we expect the US government to ensure 10,000-60,000 Syrian refugees are properly “vetted?”

Oh, and remember how Tashfeena had frequented the Jamia Hafsa? Last year some of the gals at the madrasa put together a video showing their support for IS:

Interesting, yes? For those who’ve been asking us how to spot a potential jihadist, the following are indicators to help you identify such individuals to report to the police:

1. Switching from one mosque or prayer center to another, for any reason: Muslims commonly change their religious attendance to more fundamental Islamic centers or mosques in order to attend more radical ideologies and clerics, but never the opposite. Thusly, changing Mosques is a key indicator.

2. Becoming stricter in their observance and practice of Islamic religious duties such as the call to prayer; changing their mode of dress to a more fundamental style, diet, or fasting during Ramadan especially if not previously observed, reading, quoting or discussing the Koran with co-workers and peers and classmates.

3. Withdrawing from family and friends, especially when social withdrawal is accompanied by other behaviors or indicators.

4. Many will have a vice of some sort – drinking, smoking, women, hardcore pornography (which may or may not involve women. Seriously).

The list and all of the information that we and the UK Daily Mail have provided over the last few days should arm the American people on what happened – as well as what to expect in the near-future. The problem is none of this information should’ve needed to come from us – it should’ve come from DHS or at the very least our own American media. But it didn’t. Instead what we get were a bunch of reporters storming into the residence of Sayid, which quite possibly contaminated evidence. That in itself was straight up unethical – the fact that the crime scene was turned over to the landlord to do as he pleases so soon is even more disturbing. These so-called “journalists” are supposed to be searching for the truth and to keep the American people informed. Unfortunately, what we get are attempts to “shape” information that removes a great deal of the truth from the end product that gets briefed to the American people on TV. In fact, the American MSM should be running wild to question the FBI’s claims that this wasn’t the work of a “cell” when all of the evidence says otherwise? Or what about the denials of the attackers having go pros yet the packaging was there – or the fact that the FEDs really do have the go pros they say “don’t exist?” You can bet the media would be all over this like a fat kid on a cupcake had this event occurred 8 yrs ago – and they would’ve been openly questioning why the residence was turned over to the landlord so soon.

What’s worse is that Loretta Lynch and Jeh Johnson don’t think any of these connections or the recent IS announcement of the attackers being supporters are “important.” We’re hoping that the American people feel differently and are ready to rise up and demand action from the elected officials who sworn an oath to protect us and our way of life above all else. Remember, these people work for the American people – not the other way around. Its time we reminded them of that fact and we need to do it as if our future depends on it – which it does. Since the American MSM obviously can’t be depended on for anything more than reiterating whatever talking points DHS comes up with, the ISIS Study Group will continue to press on and work with those who want to learn the truth and wish to combat this clear and present threat to the US and the civilized world in general…

FBI Director: San Bernardino Killers Not Part Of Terrorist Cell – Update


Some Interesting San Bernardino Developments…

The ISIS Study Group, Dec. 4, 2015:

In an update to 02 DEC’s “The Flames of War Come to San Bernardino, CA,” we learned that 12 IEDs (pipe bombs) were constructed at the Redlands residence (although some were utilized in the initial attack but failed to detonate) that Sayid Rizwan Farooq (variant-Farooq Sayid, Syed Farook) was spending so much time at along with what we know now is six other individuals – who are still out and about. Personally we find it rather amusing that this whole attack could’ve been prevented had one of the neighbor’s living near the Redlands residence wasn’t so worried about hurting people’s feelings. Well, that guy’s sense of “social justice” is why we have 14 of our fellow Americans dead. That’s on your conscience, buddy – we hope you see the faces of each victim killed by the people who didn’t want to offend every night for the rest of your life. Anyways, the IEDs weren’t the only things the police found at the Redlands place – apparently they also found quite a bit of ammo there in addition to the 1,400 .223 rounds and 200 9mm rounds found on the bodies of our two dead jihadists. There are a lot of questions surrounding how Sayid acquired the weapons. We know that some were purchased legally and some weren’t (e.g. the assault rifles). We know that the previous owner of the weapons Sayid purchased is an individual named Enrique Marquez, but things get rather fuzzy after that. None of the equipment this cell acquired was cheap, yet the authorities are trying their hardest to downplay this as much as possible, with some in the media and government implying that this was “workplace violence.”

Anybody with an ounce of common sense knows this was a cell that received a great deal of support from external facilitators. Our sources informed us that one of the pieces of literature found in Sayid’s home was a copy of “A Social Justice in Islam” by Sayid (variant-Sayyid) Qutb which is available on Amazon. Sound familiar? He was a leading

Sayid Qutb Source: The ISIS Study Group

Sayid Qutb
Source: The ISIS Study Group

figure in the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) who was executed in 1966 for his involvement in a plot to assassinate then-Egyptian President Gamel Abdel Nasser. He wrote over 24 books and best known for his work advocating the political role of Islam, which can be found throughout “A Social Justice in Islam.” One of the things that may interest our dear readers and anybody in the FBI is that Qutb shared a very special hatred for America and its culture in particular. He was the driving force behind the MB’s involvement in terrorism and a case can also be said that he was one of the primary sources of inspiration for al-Qaida (AQ) and later on the Islamic State (IS). Oh, and btw, Sayid Qutb’s brother Muhammad was the mentor for current AQ leader Dr. Aymen al-Zawahiri. In fact Muhammad was apparently the one who recruited Zawahiri into MB and later Egyptian Islamic Jihad-which would go on to form the backbone of AQ. Muhammad’s lectures on his brother’s work laid the foundation of Zawahiri’s militant mindset. He wasn’t the only core AQ guy who went “all-in” on Sayyid Qutb’s work through his brother Muhammad – the late-Osama bin Laden and his brother-in-law Muhammad Jamal Khalifah both developed a relationship with Muhammad. Anwar al-Awlaki – of which IS named their Western foreign fighter unit in honor of – was also a student of Sayid and Muhammad Qutb’s teachings. Of course people are well aware of the other personal mentor of bin Laden: Abdullah Azzam. In fact the 9-11 Commission cited Qutb’s work as the foundation of the modern Sunni terrorist.

Sayid Farooq’s admiration of the MB was probably why the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) was so quick to respond. The damage-control was in overdrive last night. The guy CAIR had speaking in the press conference in response to the attack was Muzammil Siddiqi, and he’s a very interesting guy. Why? Well, despite his comments made in the press conference, Breitbart was able to dig up the following gems Siddiqi has said over the years:

“Those who die on the part of justice are alive, and their place is with the Lord, and they receive the highest position, because this is the highest honor…” – Said during a 1995 speech

You can find additional tidbits of info from the following Breitbart article:

Speaker at CAIR Presser After Shooting Once Said That Suicide Bombers Die For ‘Justice’

Siddiqi has been a naughty boy himself. He’s currently the Director of the Islamic Society of Orange County (ISOC) and formerly the President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) that’s also affiliated with the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT). He still serves on the ISNA’s board of directors and is the NAIT Chairman. Now why does the Islamic Society sound familiar?Its because this is the very same Islamic Society whose Boston and Oklahoma City (OKC) branches have connections to the OKC lone-wolf beheader, the Boston Bombers, Khalid Sheik Muhammad courier Aafia Siddiqi and the late-IS senior propagandist Ahmed Abousamra.

The so-called “moderate” Siddiqi has been a big advocate for countries where homosexuality is punishable by death and has also been one of the leading voices for pushing the Sharia Law agenda in America. You may also find it interesting that the ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2007 in the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development and its ties to Hamas. It was even mentioned multiple times in internal MB documents from the late-80s and early-90s that was seized by the Feds and introduced in the trial. One of the things mentioned in these documents was how the process of settlement in the US was a “civilization-jihadist process.” They view settling in the US as part of the process to destroy the West from within by sabotaging its society by using its lax laws and its culture to their advantage.

MB Docs seized for Holy Land Trial

But there’s more. Siddiqi’s Mosque had hosted a lecture by Omar Abdul Rahman aka “the Blind Sheik” of 1993 World Trade Center Bombing notoriety and overall “Godfather” of all things AQ and IS. From the New Yorker (Reference “Azzam the American: The Making of an al-Qaida Homegrown”):

In December, 1992, Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, a prominent Egyptian cleric and Islamic radical also known as the Blind Sheikh, visited the Islamic Society to lecture about jihad, and Siddiqi sat beside him to translate. Abdel Rahman dismissed nonviolent definitions of jihad as weak. He stressed that a number of unspecified enemies had “united themselves against Muslims” and that fighting them was obligatory. “If you are not going to the jihad, then you are neglecting the rules of Allah,” he said. The opportunities for jihad were virtually everywhere, ranging from apostate Middle Eastern regimes to “those who are taking the wealth of Muslims from petrol or from oil.” As he spoke, a red toolbox, with a slit cut into its lid for donations, was passed around the room. Videotapes of the lecture were later offered for sale at the society’s bookstore.

Equally as noteworthy is the fact that Adam Yahiye Gadahn aka “Azzam the American” (Reference – “Azzam the American: The Making of an al-Qaida Homegrown“) was a parishioner at Siddiqi’s ISOC. Siddiqi is said to have “kicked” him out of the Mosque-but we suspect that had more to do with the unwanted attention he was drawing to the institution. You may or may not recall Gadahn’s role as the American mouthpiece to AQ who was killed earlier this year during an airstrike. He was a special case in that he was born a Jew who converted to Islam in 1995 and spent a great deal of time in Pakistan.

You’re probably asking yourself, “why is the ISIS Study Group mentioning all this, and what does any of it have to do with the San Bernardino attack?” Its because our friend Sayid Farooq had stopped going to the Islamic Center of Riverside and started going to the Islamic Society of Corona-Norco (ISCN) – which is another branch of the greater ISNA just like the ISOC. In fact, many senior figure associated with the ISOC have participated in events hosted by the ISCN. That’s how CAIR was able to dig up his brother-in-law Farhan Khan so quickly – they already knew it would come back to them and they needed to preempt any unwanted attention that would come from the attack. With the Islamic Society’s long list of ties to terrorists its no wonder that they would have a slick operator like Siddiqi speaking in the press conference.

As if that isn’t shady enough, Sayid has been in direct contact with people in the LA-area who are currently under investigation on involvement in terrorism. Although simply going to Saudi Arabia isn’t a crime, wouldn’t these ties and his trip to the Kingdom raise some red flags? Of course they would – but it doesn’t fit the narrative being pushed by the government at the local and federal-level, which is precisely why they continue to not give a straight answer on the go pros the jihadist “Bonny and Clyde” were wearing. Why would they wear go pros? They wanted to record the attack for future use in a propaganda video. Law enforcement officials are puzzled at how such a “happy Muslim couple” could engage in such activities. They obviously weren’t paying attention to what happened in Paris and how Abdelhamid Abaaoud’s cousin Hasna Ait Boulachen was not only a “happy Muslim,” but one that appeared very “moderate” as demonstrated by her reputation as a “party girl” (check out “Abdelhamid Abaaoud DEAD-What Happened? Will USGOV Finally Take This Threat Seriously?“). From our end we think there’s a possibility that Sayid may have met with a terror facilitator during his Saudi Arabia trip – quite possibly the individual who recruited him into the jihadist community. The fact that he had no prior record likely made him even more attractive to terror recruiters (as we’ve seen in other attacks across the globe). Unfortunately that doesn’t fit into DHS’ narrative so all this will either be buried or dismissed outright without any real digging.

The motivation is clear – they were looking to kill the “Kafir” or “Kufar,” the “unbelievers.” The collection of jihadist literature such as the works of Sayid Qutb are big indicators that he’s not “mainstream” – his links to the Islamic Society strengthens this possibility. The part about him becoming “more devout” in recent years goes back to what we brought up in “Islamic State: The French Connection” and “Al Hayat Media Center Continues to Saturate North America with its Social Media Outreach for Jihadists.” The same thing applies to recent converts. To say that “there may have been planning” is a piss-poor response by the people charged with protecting the American people. The planning and acquisition of equipment that was involved in this attack likely took months. The 800 lbs gorilla in the room is that Sayid was likely in contact with a foreign facilitator – you know, one of those “insignificant” contacts. Needless to say, we have strong suspicions they were in contact with representatives of the IS External Operations Division. These people had a mission and no, it was most certainly not because of any “workplace grievance” or “climate change.”

Another indicator that this was not workplace violence is that Tashfeen Malik, the wife of Sayeed Farooq posted a pledge of allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdaid just prior to the attack. Stay tuned…

The ISIS Study Group, Dec. 3, 2015:

At approximately 1100 hrs (SoCal time) a shooting began at the Inland Regional Center (MAP,) (MAP2)located at the Southern California Inland Empire (San Bernardino) in what has the makings of a cell-based attack. Two members of this cell were wearing full kit (BDUs, body armor etc) along with assault rifles. Thus far the casualty count is 14 dead, 17 wounded – but that number will likely change within the next 24-48 hrs. The primary target appeared to have been a gathering (Christmas party) at the center. As for the attackers, local police were able to find two of these individuals and neutralized them, a man and a woman. The third individual (getaway driver?) was arrested. So is this a case of “workplace violence” or the dreaded “climate change” that creates terrorists? Hardly – but the Obama administration would love to have you believing that.

San Bernardino shooting live updates: Syed Farook named as a suspect in attack that killed 14


One of the individuals involved has been identified as Pakistani-American Raheel Sayid Rizwan Farooq (variant-Farooq Sayid, Syed Farook). Our friend Sayid here studied Finance and Business Administration at Cal State Fullerton and found work in the banking sector. He also did a gig at a Domino’s Pizza before finally snagging a job as a health inspector for the county (yeah, a bit of a career change, isn’t it?). He was also described to us as being a “devout Muslim.” Publicly the media and law enforcement are only talking about the two who were killed, but there are more involved on the facilitation side. The facilitators are likely managing other cells. Its also worth noting that Sayid’s home address being in Corona yet he spent a lot of time at another residence in Redlands that we suspect belonged to his brother – although this is unconfirmed. Our sources report that the guy’s neighbors had concerns about him and the people coming and going from his residence – we found the part about bringing over packages to be very, very interesting. BTW, we hear 3-4 individuals were staying at the Redlands residence. Interestingly enough, there was a suspected IED found at this location. We’re working to flesh out the details that will be in follow up articles.

You can get the translations of what was Tweeted out in the following VOCATIV piece:

EXCLUSIVE: ISIS Adherents Praise San Bernardino Massacre, “America Burning”

Sayid is assessed to be the lead planner for the attack and the individual most likely to be in contact with the guy facilitating their operation. Furthermore, the woman who was killed – identified as Tafsheen Malik – may be his wife or girlfriend (still working to confirm), which isn’t that uncommon in the jihadist world – it just tends to occur outside of the US (check out “The Women of ISIS and “Sexual Jihad” for more info). Another thing to consider is that the equipment used and the weaponry utilized aren’t things that come cheaply and makes the possibility of a separate guy facilitating the operation more likely. Sayid was likely the one in contact with this individual. The way the attackers targeted the Regional Center is also indicative of planning and training that probably took place over a period of months. The High Desert and Big Bear-areas offer a plethora of locations suitable for such training without drawing the unwanted attention of law enforcement. They went in fast and hard, hitting their target and doing a tactical withdrawal. Sayid’s presence at the party prior to the attack was likely him casing the target just before “showtime.” As of this writing its too early to say if this event has any connections to the IS External Operations Division. Its also worth noting that although the IS propaganda outlets have praised the attack, they have not yet claimed responsibility. That said, the posts they made on social media does imply that someone in the structural IS leadership may have known about the plot in advance, although that’s conjecture on our part. As you probably figured by now, the situation remains fluid (like the Paris attack we covered recently). When we come across more information, we will update accordingly…

Another interesting tidbit on Sayid is that he traveled to Saudi Arabia to pick up his wife he met online.

EXCLUSIVE–Islamic State Supporters Speculate Whether Lone Wolf Jihadists Carried Out CA Mass Shooting

The Metcalf Incident: California Power Station Terrorist Attack Reveals Highly Vulnerable National Grid

Grid Attack diagram WSJ 2-5-14NER, By Jerry Gordon:

Today’s  Wall Street Journal  (WSJ) had a front page story that raises question of the vulnerability of our national power grid to terrorist attack given an incident that occurred in Silicon Valley in April 2013. It is only now t surfacing  in the national media, “Assault on Power Grid Raises Alarms”.  In the early morning of April 16, 2013, the Metcalf, California transmission substation in Silicon Valley was attacked by what federal investigators believe was a highly professional terrorist team .  That sniper  assault  caused 17 transformers to crash severing power to  Internet Service Providers  and other power users in  Silicon Valley.  Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) was forced to  increase and reroute power to the area served by the disabled transmission station.  The recovery  took 27 days for PG&E to repair and bring  the transmission substation back on line.

Here is the time line of the Metcalf incident as compiled by the WSJ:

At 12:58 a.m., AT&T fiber-optic telecommunications cables were cut—in a way that made them hard to repair—in an underground vault near the substation, not far from U.S. Highway 101 just outside south San Jose. It would have taken more than one person to lift the metal vault cover, said people who visited the site.

Nine minutes later, some customers of Level 3 Communications,  an Internet service provider, lost service. Cables in its vault near the Metcalf substation were also cut.

At 1:31 a.m., a surveillance camera pointed along a chain-link fence around the substation recorded a streak of light that investigators from the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s office think was a signal from a waved flashlight. It was followed by the muzzle flash of rifles and sparks from bullets hitting the fence.

The substation’s cameras weren’t aimed outside its perimeter, where the attackers were. The shooters appear to have aimed at the transformers’ oil-filled cooling systems. These began to bleed oil, but didn’t explode, as the transformers probably would have done if hit in other areas.

About six minutes after the shooting started, PG&E confirms, it got an alarm from motion sensors at the substation, possibly from bullets grazing the fence, which is shown on video.

Four minutes later, at 1:41 a.m., the sheriff’s department received a 911 call about gunfire, sent by an engineer at a nearby power plant that still had phone service.

Riddled with bullet holes, the transformers leaked 52,000 gallons of oil, then overheated. The first bank of them crashed at 1:45 a.m., at which time PG&E’s control center about 90 miles north received an equipment-failure alarm.

Five minutes later, another apparent flashlight signal, caught on film, marked the end of the attack. More than 100 shell casings of the sort ejected by AK-47s were later found at the site.

At 1:51 a.m., law-enforcement officers arrived, but found everything quiet. Unable to get past the locked fence and seeing nothing suspicious, they left.

A PG&E worker, awakened by the utility’s control center at 2:03 a.m., arrived at 3:15 a.m. to survey the damage.

Watch this video for the Santa Clara Police Department released in June 2013 published in the San Jose Mercury.

The WSJ noted that PG&E put out a news release saying it was “vandals” who caused the incident.  Note what former Federal  Electrical Regulatory Commission (FERC) head, Jon  Wellinghoff  uncovered after the event:

Mr. Wellinghoff, then chairman of FERC, said that after he heard about the scope of the attack, he flew to California, bringing with him experts from the U.S. Navy’s Dahlgren Surface Warfare Center in Virginia, which trains Navy SEALs. After walking the site with PG&E officials and FBI agents, Mr. Wellinghoff said, the military experts told him it looked like a professional job.

In addition to fingerprint-free shell casings, they pointed out small piles of rocks, which they said could have been left by an advance scout to tell the attackers where to get the best shots.

“They said it was a targeting package just like they would put together for an attack,” Mr. Wellinghoff said.

Mr. Wellinghoff, now a law partner at Stoel Rives LLP in San Francisco, said he arranged a series of meetings in the following weeks to let other federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, know what happened and to enlist their help. He held a closed-door meeting with utility executives in San Francisco in June and has distributed lists of things utilities should do to strengthen their defenses.

A spokesman for Homeland Security said it is up to utilities to protect the grid. The department’s role in an emergency is to connect federal agencies and local police and facilitate information sharing, the spokesman said.

The WSJ article drew attention to the problem of replacing the transformers, the target of the Metcalf terrorist  attack:

The country’s roughly 2,000 very large transformers are expensive to build, often costing millions of dollars each, and hard to replace. Each is custom made and weighs up to 500,000 pounds, and “I can only build 10 units a month,” said Dennis Blake, general manager of Pennsylvania Transformer in Pittsburgh, one of  [only]seven U.S. manufacturers.

Given our work on the EMP threat to our national grid, there are 300 critical transmission substations like Metcalf that are vulnerable to such a terrorist assault. See: Interview with Jerry Gordon on The Electronic Armageddon -The … .   A rolling assault by trained terrorist  teams  against  these 300  sub stations  could  create havoc  and a shutdown of the national  grid  far in excess of the 50 million who lost power when the Northeast grid crashed in 2003.  The grid  vulnerability  is reflected in the limited  US manufacturing capacity for large Extra High Voltage (EHV) transformers.  Most of the world’s EHV transformer manufacturing capacity is located in China, South Korea and Germany.  A study by the National Academy of Sciences indicated  that  replacement of just the 300 EVH transformers from  limited US and offshore producers could take upwards of a decade. Further national security concern is the more than 100 military bases  connected to these vulnerable civilian grids. The WSJ article also illustrates the underlying problem of utility industry opposition to HR 2417: Shield Act sponsored by  Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) which would set standards including provision for standby replacement transformers. Based on work of the  Congressionally chartered EMP Task Force a thin shield for the national grid might cost $200 million, while a more robust program could run between $10 to $20 billion.  The impact on electric utility users would be an increase in electrical rates per user of less than $.20 cents per annum.

The  North American Electric Reliability  Corporation (NERC), the principal electric utility standard setting organization,  has opposed passage of the Shield Act calling the network “resilient”.  Au contraire  says  an official of Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) cited by the WSJ: “The breadth and depth of the attack was unprecedented” in the U.S., said Rich Lordan, senior technical  executive. “The motivation”, he said, “appears to  be preparation for an act of war.”  When we checked the websites of House Energy and Commerce Committee  Chairman  Fred Upton (R-MI ) and  Energy and Power Subcommittee Chairman Ed Whitfield (R-KY) their major concerns as regards the security of the grid is vulnerability to cyber attack.  According to the WSJ  retiring  House Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Henry Waxman (D-CA) raised concerns  about the lack of federal  authority to undertake protective actions regarding the safety of the national grid during FERC oversight hearings in December 2013.

Whether it is  a terrorist attack like the Metcalf substation incident, the threat of a massive geo –magnetic storm during   or an EMP caused by either North Korea or Iran , this latest WSJ report should embolden US taxpayers and electrical users to request serious  Congressional  consideration of HR2417: The Shield Act .   If any of those events occurred  that would  bring us back to pre-industrial times. If that occurs, the estimates are that more than 200 million Americans could succumb to a  pandemic  virus from lack of food, water, sanitation  and  medical treatment caused by the breakdown of industrial , transportation and communications networks.  If you are concerned about this lack of security of the national  grid, you should consider signing a petition requesting Congressional consideration of the Shield Act , here.
