Behind The Khashoggi Disappearance–Let’s Not Throw Out The Baby With The Bath Water

Center for Security Policy, by Clare Lopez, October 17, 2018:

Originally published on The Daily Caller:

While we await clarification of what exactly happened to Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on Oct. 2, there are still some important insights that may be gleaned from what is already known.

It is of key importance to note that Khashoggi was not just a Saudi citizen but also a legal permanent resident of the United States. And that makes his disappearance very much an issue for the United States and President Trump to take a direct interest in.

Should it be determined, as expected, that Khashoggi’s disappearance and possible murder was ordered by the top levels of the Saudi government, then the U.S. must impose a severe penalty and do it publicly. If the president fails in doing so, respect for him personally and for the U.S. government as a whole will be diminished with detrimental consequences not just for the U.S.-Saudi relationship, but more broadly in the Arab-Muslim world and beyond.

In the days since Khashoggi’s disappearance, information about him and his connections to the jihadist Muslim Brotherhood, as well as his outspoken, public criticism of the Saudi regime, have emerged.

While we of liberal Western civilization cherish and champion the right of individuals to speak freely, for those who govern by the laws of Islam (shariah) — as do the Saudis — publicly insulting fellow Muslims, much less the Saudi royal family, as Khashoggi did amounts to committing the capital crime of “slander” as defined by shariah (“anything that a Muslim would dislike“).

He criticized Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) by name, accused him of corruption (another capital crime under shariah — Q 5:32-33) and compared him to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He also condemned the Saudis as “repressive” and “extremist”, a word that carries specific meaning within Islam: to be “extremist” is to “exceed the limits” that Allah himself has set on lawful behavior by Muslims. For the Qur’an itself clearly says, “And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits” (Q 2:191).

For all of these reasons, under a legal code that Western Civilization rightly finds savage, Khashoggi very likely was given a death sentence by a regime whose continued right to existence is defined by its custodial role as Keepers of the Two Holy Places.

Were the Saudis to have failed to defend Islam and shariah, they themselves would be seen as unworthy of the honor and the duty of that role and thereby become vulnerable in ways that directly involve regional stability.

The Turkish regime’s decision to free Pastor Andrew Brunson at just this juncture is not separate from the fact that Khashoggi disappeared inside the Saudi consulate on Turkish territory. That situation greatly exacerbates what was already a contentious relationship between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the Saudis.

In short, Erdogan feels vulnerable right now and likely made the gesture to free Brunson as a kind of proffer to the United States. In short, he is looking for help from President Trump to stave off a Saudi offensive against Ankara. This does not mean that there was any kind of “deal” involved in Brunson’s release but rather that Turkey may well be willing to make other concessions going forward.

As the first and foremost of those, President Trump should demand a halt to Turkey’s Justice and Development Party (AKP) collaboration with the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.

As for the Saudis, if and when facts indicate they were responsible for whatever happened to Khashoggi, Crown Prince MBS and the Saudi regime itself must be held to account and publicly. President Trump must follow through on his threat of “severe punishment”; the Saudis will squawk publicly over this, but privately will understand  —and so will the rest of the Arab/Muslim world, which will be watching closely.

As noted above, because Khashoggi was a U.S. resident, his murder (if that is what it was) must be avenged. All this said, however, it is also of paramount importance that we not “throw out the baby with the bath water.”

The U.S.-Saudi relationship is critical to U.S. national security objectives in the region, most especially vis-à-vis Iran. Those who would disrupt or even destroy that relationship must not be allowed to succeed, even over the murder of a U.S. person by Saudis, whether officially or through a rogue operation.

President Trump must exact a meaningful and public price for the Khashoggi affair but tread a fine line that maintains a commitment to the bilateral relationship.

UTT Domestic Enemy SITREP – Part I

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, October 15, 2018:

From a military perspective, the Islamic Counter-State has gained significant ground in the last five years to prepare the battlefield in the United States, while U.S. intelligence and security forces remain nearly completely ignorant of the true nature of the threat.

The following is UTT’s brief Domestic Enemy SITREP (Situation Report) as it relates primarily to the Islamic threat in the United States:

Summary

Since 9/11/01, the Islamic Counter-State has been able to conduct military operations inside the United States without any assessment by U.S. intelligence, law enforcement or military forces attributing these actions to the massive Islamic jihadi network supporting them.  The 9/11/01 attack and nearly all of the 71 attacks on U.S. soil by jihadis since 9/11, were all conducted with the support and assistance of a massive jihadi network in the U.S. primarily controlled by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood.  Yet, there has been no concerted effort by any U.S. government entity to target and destroy this network, or even seek to identify it.

This points to a highly sophisticated and successful enemy Information Operation which has matured to the point the leadership of the Islamic Counter-State controls the national security decision-making process to the point it has kept the current administration from designating the Muslim Brotherhood a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

UTT will discuss the enemy’s Information Operation in Part II of this SITREP this coming Thursday.

Enemy’s Preparation of the Battlefield

  • Hostile domestic and foreign Islamic entities continue to build Islamic Centers/mosques at a rapid rate in all 50 states.  The number of mosques in the U.S. increased by 900 between 2000 and 2010 (from 1209 to 2106), and by over 1000 between 2010 and 2015.  Today, there are over 3200 mosques in all 50 states.  As an example, there are 52 mosques within 20 miles of the center of Dallas, Texas.  The majority of the mosques in the U.S. (at least 81%) teach that war against non-muslims (jihad) is legal under sharia (Islamic Law), and they also teach jihad is one of the three duties of every muslim.  In Islam, the primary purpose of a mosque is NOT a “place of prayer.”  A mosque is the center of the Islamic government, where sharia is adjudicated, Islam/sharia is taught, and jihad is planned.  A mosque is the place from which jihad is launched.  This is why U.S. troops found weapons in mosques in Afghanistan and Iraq, Europeans are finding military grade weapons in the mosques they raid, and why the U.S. government has discovered weapons training takes place in U.S. mosques.
  • Muslims continue to: (1) purchase fuel centers (gas stations) and mini-marts (pre-positioning); (2) take positions as managers or assistant managers in the biggest hotels in major metropolitan areas (intelligence gathering); and (3) purchase hotels in small rural areas.
  • Across the United States, hostile Islamic organizations and their emissaries are purchasing property immediately adjacent to key communications, financial, military and logistic nodes.  This is causing great concern by local officials who understand the Islamic threat, not only because they see the intentional actions by jihadis in their jurisdictions, but because federal agencies with legal duties to act generally have no interest in taking any action.
  • The organized Islamic Counter-State in the U.S. is currently consolidating forces.  Domestically, the Muslim Brotherhood, Deobandi, Iranian/Hizbollah, and other Islamic jihadi forces have been growing and coordinating for several years.  The creation of the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations (USCMO) in June 2014 brought a more focused avenue for the jihadi efforts.  Recently, the Turkish government has literally established official Turkish government entities in the United States without any permission or official sanction from the U.S. government.  The development of the Diyanet and its related mosques on the East Coast, is the next major step of the development of the extension of Turkish Islamic power in America.  The Diyanet Center of America was officially opened in 2016 in Lanham, Maryland as a part of the Presidency of Religious Affairs (Diyanet), an institution of the Government of Turkey.  President Erdogan of Turkey, who came to America in support of the Diyanet when it was opening, makes clear he is moving to be the next Caliph with Turkey at the center of the Caliphate.  It should be noted, the last Caliphate – the Ottoman Empire – which was dissolved in the early 1920’s, was centered in modern-day Turkey.
  • UTT assesses the Islamic Counter-State will use the U.S. as a staging platform for its war in Europe after the Caliphate is officially established, which will be in the near future.  Once they assess they have gained significant control of Europe and established control of the power base in the U.S., they will focus their efforts here.

Based on the information provided herein, and a significant amount of other information collected by Understanding the Threat (UTT), UTT assesses America’s security vulnerability to the Islamic Counter-State as GRAVE at this time.  Without a significant and radical course change, the U.S. cannot win this war at the federal level.

However, UTT assesses a significant awakening at the local level in a number of areas across the United States where police, elected officials and citizens trained by UTT are coordinating efforts and taking the fight to the enemy at the local level.

See UTT’s next installment of UTT’s Domestic Enemy SITREP this coming Thursday.

The Art of Supremacy

Published on Oct 9, 2018:

There is little doubt that the Nazis were experts at mastering supremacy. They have inspired numerous groups who have copied their methods to wreak terror on the world. Now the Jihadi groups use copycat techniques. But the history of Nazi association with Jihadi and Islamist groups stretches back to the 1930’s

Here is Part One of the series:

Yes, I know, the politically correct “radical” qualifier is misleading. There is only one Dawa in Islamic doctrine. Individual Muslims may choose to follow it to varying degrees.

Lepanto, Tours, Columbus, and Vetting in the U.S. Government

Understanding the Threat, by John Gundadolo, October 8, 2018:

The Battles of Lepanto and Tours, Christopher Columbus, and America’s first war all have one thing in common – they all involved muslims waging jihad to enslave the entire world under Islam/sharia.

Yet, the U.S. government continues to give sharia-adherent muslims security clearances, positions in our government, and military training.

The Battle of Lepanto, October 7, 1571

On October 7, 1571, the naval forces of the Holy League met the Islamic Ottoman Turks in the Gulf of Corinth (Greece) and – after prayer by the entire Holy League and many churches around Europe – the Ottomans were defeated for the first time by Christian forces in a naval battle, now referred to as the Battle of Lepanto.

Read a more detailed account of the Battle of Lepanto by UTT here.

In the Battle of Tours (October 10, 732), Charles “The Hammer” Martel led the forces of Europe against the Islamic forces of the Umayyad Caliphate, and were victorious against the muslims.  This was a tremendous, and some say miraculous, victory for the Christian West against the Islamic forces.

On October 8th of each year America celebrates “Columbus Day.”

Christopher Columbus was commissioned by his queen in 1492 to discover new islands and lands.  Why in that year?

1492 was the year Spanish forces came down from the mountains of Spain, defeated the muslim forces, pushed them out, and took back their homeland which had been seized by muslims for approximately 780 years.

The first war America fought after the American Revolution was against muslims who seized U.S. ships on the high seas, captured Americans, and charged the United States great sums of money as tribute.

Specifically, President Thomas Jefferson sent the Marines to Tripoli in 1804 to defeat the muslims.   The English translation of the Koran Jefferson obtained encouraged readers to study it so the Islamic enemy could be understood and defeated in battle.

Today, the government of the United States continues to employ sharia-adherent muslims in positions of authority inside our government, use them to advise U.S. officials on matters of national security, and allows hostile foreign powers to attend U.S. war colleges, military training programs, and much more.

Three examples:

  1. Abdurahman Alamoudi was the Islamic advisor the President Clinton and met with him more than any other muslim in America.  Alamoudi was a “Goodwill Ambassador” for the U.S. State Department and founded the Muslim Chaplain Program for the Department of Defense.  Alamoudi is now in federal prison and was an Al Qaeda financier.
  2. On 9/11/01, Suhail Khan was working inside the White House, and then became a close advisor to two successive Secretaries of Transportation with a clearance.  Khan is the son of one of the most prominent U.S. Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the 1960’s and 1970’s, Mahboob Khan.  Suhail Khan lauded his fathers efforts and was publicly praised by Al Qaeda financier Alamoudi.
  3. Gulmurod Khalimov participated in five (5) U.S. State Department training programs which included weapons and tactics training between 2003 and 2014.  During this time period, videos were available online where Khalimov – a jihadi commander in Tajikistan at the time – called for killing Americans.  Khalimov then became the “Minister of War for ISIS.”  The State Department defended their training of Khalimov by stating Khalimov had been appropriately vetted.

All Islamic doctrine mandates warfare against non-muslims until the war is under Islamic rule.

All Islamic doctrine mandates that muslims lie to non-muslims if it advances Islam.

Previous generations of Patriots whose minds were not polluted by the inability to see good and evil could make clear-headed decisions about the true nature of Islam.

Pretending the wolf is a puppy, does not keep the wolf from eating you.

Daily Reality, Islamic Doctrine & 1400 Years of History Tell Us There is ONE Version of Islam

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, October 3, 2018:

Headlines from around the world demonstrate Islamic leaders and sharia-adherent muslims want to live under sharia, want everyone else to live under sharia, believe those who leave Islam must be killed, believe raping non-muslims is lawful, believe warfare against non-muslims is mandatory until the world is under Islamic rule, believe mosques are centers of the Islamic government where sharia is adjudicated and weapons are stored, and believe Islam must dominate, subjugate, and eradicate.

Here are a few stories from around the world in the LAST 3 days:

  • Grandson of 1972 Munich Massacre architect (terrorist) who is running for U.S. Congress in California called a “Security Risk”
  • Man who applied for refugee status in Poland numerous times expelled for ties to terrorist organizations
  • Canada Revenue Agency fines Islamic Society of North America over concerns it aided armed jihadis
  • Sharia Law, Islamic Jihadis Rule Greece’s Notorious Migrant Camp
  • Jihadi on trial in Australia says muslims must wage jihad, martyrdom is the goal, and sharia is the law
  • French police raid a Shi’ite Muslim mosque and arrest three of its leaders for illegal weapons possession
  • France accuses Iranian Intelligence of working inside France to support jihadi attacks
  • 3 muslims from the West Bank indicted for plotting terrorism (jihad) against Israel
  • Brandeis University in Massachusetts to fund projects countering “Islamophobia”
  • Muslims slaughter 17 Christians in Nigeria
  • Muslims in Greek Refugee Camp openly state “If you are not Muslim I can rape you”
  • Spanish Police take down jihadi recruiting operation in 17 prisons
  • 70 muslims in rape gang in Telford, England raped a 13 year old girl 6 years ago – only one was recently convicted
  • Islamic scholar says Female Genital Mutilation is recommended for muslim girls/females
  • Several muslim “refugees” caught/arrested at the Oktoberfest in Munich for sexually assaulting women
  • 13 dead, over 30 injured in martyrdom operation (bombing) by muslim in Afghanistan

Strange how so many muslims are getting their “version” of Islam “wrong” in the exact same way.  Maybe they aren’t getting it wrong.

Just like the most prominent Islamic scholars from Al Azhar who believe in the same “version” of Islam as Al Qaeda and the Islamic State scholars.

Strange how Abdullah Azzam, who created Al Qaeda with Osama bin Laden, and Al Qaeda’s Blind Sheikh (Omar Abdel Rahman) believed in the same “version” of Islam too.  Yet, they were revered Islamic scholars.

Strange how today we can find the books and DVD’s of Al Qaeda leader Anwar al Awlaqi in nearly every mosque book store in America teaching the same “version” of Islam, yet the United States killed him in a drone strike in 2011.

There is 1 Islam and 1 sharia

The following is lawful under sharia:

  • Killing those who leave Islam
  • Killing those who commit adultery
  • Killing homosexuals
  • Waging war against/Killing non-muslims who do not convert or submit to sharia
  • Lying to non-muslims
  • Raping women who do not cover themselves
  • Female Genital Mutilation
  • A 60 year old man marrying a 7 year old girl
  • Parents killing their children or grand-children

Creating a domestic counter-terrorism strategy in the United States, a military war-plan to be victorious over the Islamic threat, and a foreign policy to support that war-plan, must begin with knowing and understanding that Islam is at war with the United States and, therefore, we are at war.

Islam is the threat.  Sharia is the doctrine.

The first war America fought after the American Revolution was against muslims from the Islamic States (Barbary States) waging war against the United States by seizing U.S. ships and capturing our citizens.

President Thomas Jefferson went to war against the Islamic States because he understood they were the enemy of liberty and an enemy of the United States.  Twenty years earlier he and John Adams heard it from the Ambassador to Britain from Tripoli who told them muslims had the right to wage war against non-muslims because the Koran says so.

When the United States decides to read the enemy’s war doctrine (sharia), commit to a plan for victory based on a professional analysis of the enemy’s doctrine (sharia), and stop taking advice from muslims, we will win this war.

Hating Men in a Real Handmaid’s Tale

What the latest #Resistance costume really means

Front Page Magazine, by Daniel Greenfield, October 3, 2018:

The official outfit of the #Resistance used to be a black mask or private parts hats. Lately it’s been the pseudo-Amish outfit of an oversized bonnet and long red dress from The Handmaid’s Tale.

You can find lefty protesters dressed like Amish prison inmates protesting the Kavanaugh hearings by looking firmly at the ground. Alyssa Milano, a has-been child actress, brandished a “Never Kavanaugh, Never Gilead,” sign while dressed in the goofy signature outfit of the Hulu series. Lefties outfitted as, what the show’s costume designer has described as, “walking wombs”, protested Pence’s arrival.

The silly protest style has also been picked up by pro-abortion protesters in Ireland and Argentina.

The Handmaid’s Tale cosplay is, like so much of postmodern feminist outrage, a dystopian fantasy in search of a reality. Its imaginary universe, of the book and the show, in which men are innately predatory, validates their conviction that Brett Kavanaugh must be guilty, because he is a conservative white Christian man. And they’re all rapists. Just like the oppressors of Gilead in The Handmaid’s Tale.

The Handmaid’s Tale is to postmodern feminists what Birth of a Nation was to white nationalists. Both are fantasies by which the powerful justify their oppression by imagining themselves to be powerless.

Wealthy career women pretending that they’re slaves, staring at the ground as an aggressive protest, dressing up like nuns, the Amish or other members of religious communities that they despise, is a costuming that reveals the malicious hypocrisy of the lefty protesters, not of their conservative targets.

But The Handmaid’s Tale, a bad book, has always been tainted with pious hypocrisy and bad faith.

Margaret Atwood, its author, drew inspiration from the events of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, but she projected the treatment of women in Muslim countries on to “fundamentalist Christians” in America instead. The Hulu show picks up on the abuses inflicted by the Islamic State on women in Iraq and Syria, and once again projects the abuses of Islamic theocracies on to Trump, Republicans and Americans.

The Handmaid’s Tale appropriates the suffering of women in Muslim countries and uses it to nurture the inflated sense of victimhood of American feminists without ever acknowledging the source. Not only are American feminists appropriating their suffering, but they’re exploiting it for a political cause that is supportive of the Islamic theocracies that are repressing, imprisoning and killing those women.

Gilead, the imaginary dictatorship that oppresses women, really does exist in Iran and Saudi Arabia. It nearly came into being in Egypt and Tunisia because of the “Arab Spring” perpetrated by the Obama administration and backed by some of the same Washington D.C. career socialites who like to pretend that they’re oppressed Christian concubines on the weekends. The Offred cosplayers can be found at lefty conferences and protests alongside Muslim Brotherhood front group activists wearing hijabs.

But the hijab and the burka is, as every good lefty knows, empowering. As are genital mutilations and honor killings. Mohammed, who raped and enslaved women across the land, was a feminist. And every immigrant from a religion, whose texts prescribe beating women and whose laws legalize the rape of unaccompanied women, is another triumph for diversity, feminism and the right side of history.

The Islamic State’s mass enslavement of women, the forced gender apartheid of the Muslim world, the mass sexual assaults by Muslim migrants in Germany, the Muslim sex grooming gangs in the UK, all vanish to be replaced by safe American Christian male villains who validate the politics of the left.

The original feminists were Christians. Gilead, the caliphate of the Handmaid’s Tale, has no resemblance to any actual Christian society, but its system of concubines, of mandatory clothing for women, has obvious resemblances to Islamic theocracies. Including Iran: whose regime is backed by the left.

If the Handmaid’s Tale protesters were serious about women’s rights, they would be protesting John Kerry’s collusion with the Iranian regime, and Obama’s illegal shipments of billions to that regime, instead of pretending that Mike Pence, who won’t even be alone with a woman who isn’t his wife, wants to stock up on concubines from the ranks of the Washington D.C. chattering classes.

The Handmaid’s Tale takes a real threat to women and allows the political allies of that threat to instead project it elsewhere. That was the function of the book, and it’s the essential function of the Hulu series.

The Handmaid’s Tale, the Hulu show even more than the book, serves to advance modern feminism’s reductionism of women’s rights to abortion. The difference between abortion on demand at any time and any restriction on it is the difference between some European feminist nirvana like Sweden, (with several times the sexual assault rate of the United States), and the Tale’s Gilead.

This reductionism makes it easy to ignore the plight of women in the Muslim world. If the defining issue of women’s rights isn’t the right to own property, to walk the street or to not be beaten, but abortion, then wealthy white feminists are just as potentially oppressed as Iranian or Qatari women are. And when Muslim Brotherhood front groups sign on to the lefty united front, even when it includes abortion, that must mean that a repressive Islamic theocracy is actually more liberal than America.

When the core of women’s rights is abortion, then it’s easy to ignore the actual oppression of women.

The cheap costume theatrics of lefties in bonnets obscures the horrifying mutilation and abuse of women in the real world while allowing the powerful to feel good about their own hypocrisies.

When Margaret Atwood, the Handmaid’s Tale Canadian author, showed up at the prestigious Hay Festival in the UK, a group of women in red dresses and white bonnets followed her around.

There, Atwood suggested that Mike Pence could use her book as an “instruction manual” and that had Hillary Clinton won, they might have said, “look at what we have just avoided’.”

Hillary Clinton had laughed about her tactics in helping a 12-year-old girl’s rapist get away with his crime. And if there’s anyone who belongs in the hierarchy of Gilead, it’s Hillary, a greedy egomaniacal creature who covered for her husband’s abusive appetites for women by going after his victims.

But postmodern feminism is filled with such hypocrisies and absurdities.

While The Handmaid’s Tale has been touted as a work for the #MeToo era, Atwood ended up on the wrong side of the movement when she championed the cause of a male professor accused of sexual assault. “Am I a bad feminist?” Atwood demanded, in an essay which rejected the fundamental premise of #BelieveAllWomen by declaring, “that women are human beings, with the full range of saintly and demonic behaviours this entails, including criminal ones. They’re not angels, incapable of wrongdoing.”

But Atwood’s most famous work plugs into a poisonous postmodern feminist culture that uses fantasies of victimhood to demonize one gender and sanctify another. #BelieveAllWomen is the flip side of #YesAllMen. Evil is defined by identity. Kavanaugh is a man and a devil. His accuser, obviously an angel.

The costumes, invoking fundamentalist beliefs, are actually fairly apt.

The lefty protesters have no religion, but they have a black and white view of the world, a Manichean clash between angels and devils, between Democrats and Republicans, feminism and masculinity. The political hysteria is redolent of Salem with witch trials, feverish purges and self-righteous terror.

Their mistake was believing that they could wear a costume to criticize someone else. Like a Rorschach inkblot, the costume you wear doesn’t say anything about other people, it says something about you.

The Handmaid’s Tale outfits are the costume of a fundamentalist political sect that stigmatizes and represses an entire gender and wants to remake America into a dystopian society where masculinity is a crime and kangaroo courts punish people with no evidence but the crime of their gender.

If you want to find Gilead, don’t read a book, visit a college campus.

FIRST-TIME RELEASE ON VIDEO: Glenn Beck interviews Robert Spencer on The History of Jihad

Jihad Watch, by Robert Spencer, October 2, 2018:

Glenn Beck recently interviewed me; now for the first time the video of our conversation is available. Meanwhile, in this podcast, Beck discusses my being deplatformed and silenced, and talks about our interview, saying: “You can hear that whole interview. It’s fascinating, and I highly recommend it. In fact, I don’t even know if you can do this, but I’d burn it to DVD. I highly recommend that you listen to this guy, and make your own mind up. But do your own homework. Find out why you disagree with him. It will make you stronger either way.”
