UTT Throwback Thursday: Nurture Jihadis & Get Jihad

Understanding the Threat, by John Guandolo, June 7, 2017:

Jihadi is total warfare.

The kinetic jihad is most effective when the target community is softened up before violence is brought upon them and then driven into the arms of the suit-wearing jihadis after an attack.

On April 15, 2013 two muslims, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, remotely-detonated two bombs they placed at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.  Three people were killed, including an eight year old boy, and 260 people were wounded including 16 who lost limbs as a result of the attack.  Three days later, MIT police officer Sean Collier was assassinated by the Tsarnaev’s while on duty in his vehicle on campus. Later that night, the Tsarnaevs carjacked a vehicle and kidnapped the driver.  The driver escaped and helped police track the car to Watertown, Massachusetts where an extensive firefight took place in the early morning hours (12:30 AM) of April 19th between police and the Tsarnaevs.  During the assault, the Tsarnaevs used homemade grenades against the police.  Tamerlan was killed after he was shot and run over with the vehicle his brother was driving to escape.  Later in the day on the 19th, Dzhokhar was discovered hiding in a boat in a yard in Watertown.  After a confrontation, Dzhokhar was shot and then taken into custody.  He was found guilty and sentenced to death.

During this episode, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick literally shut much of the Boston area down during the manhunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and, from all accounts, he and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino earnestly wanted him caught.

Yet, these are the same men – Patrick and Menino – who, prior to the bombing, defended and publicly lauded leaders in the Islamic community who called for this type of behavior (jihad), and who represent known jihadi/Muslim Brotherhood organizations.

One clear example:  The Islamic Society of Boston’s (ISB) Cultural Center, also known as the Roxbury Mosque, officially opened in 2009. The ISB was founded by convicted and imprisoned Al Qaeda financier Abdurahman Alamoudi, and had as a founding trustee Yusuf al Qaradawi, the International Muslim Brotherhood’s most revered Islamic scholar and jurist.  Currently, renowned Muslim Brotherhood leader Jamal Badawi is a trustee of the ISB.  Badawi is listed on Muslim Brotherhood documents, declassified FBI documents, and other evidence as a senior Muslim Brotherhood leader who has served in leadership positions in numerous Brotherhood organizations, including as President of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

One more note, the ISB’s Cultural Center is operated by the Muslim American Society (MAS), identified by the U.S. government as the “overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States.”

A seven minute video, available HERE, was produced by the Americans for Peace and Tolerance detailing the links between the ISB’s Cultural Center and the support given by the Governor and the Mayor to one prominent Islamic/Jihadi leader, Imam Abdullah Faarooq.

This video is an excellent tutorial in how leaders like Governor Patrick and Mayor Menino collaborate with jihadis, wittingly or unwittingly, to make communities like Boston significantly more dangerous for its citizens.

Money to build the ISB’s Cultural Center came from Saudi Arabia, but support also came from the Boston Mayor’s Offfice when Mayor Menino sold the land to the Center – valued at over $2 million – for only $175,000.  Governor Patrick had a close relationship with several jihadi leaders in the Boston area, but none more noticable than Imam Faarooq, whom he publicly hugs in the video.

This is the same Imam Faarooq who said, while defending captured Al Qaeda operative Aafia Siddiqui (a friend of the Imam):  “Grab on to the shovel, grab on to the gun and the sword.  Don’t be afraid to step out into this world and do your job.”

Yet, after the Boston Marathon bombing, suit-wearing jihadis conned Massachusetts officials to draw even closer so muslim leaders can work more closely to them.  The muslims objective, to continue to control the narrative.  “Islam is peace, and if you don’t regurgitate that we will blow up your city.”  Using the violent jihadis to push U.S. officials and leaders into the arms of suit-wearing jihadis.

Oddly, the Islamic leaders have yet to share the truth with their local/state/federal “friends” that jihad is an obligation for all muslims until the entire world is under sharia (Islamic Law).

And so the cycle goes.  The Muslim Brotherhood organizations across the United States have been the “birthplace” of jihadis in Chattanooga, Little Rock, Seattle, Ft Hood, Denver, BOSTON, and so many others, yet they are still operating.

And why do they do this?  Because this is what Islam is and this is what Islam requires.

This war will be won – or lost – at the local level.  Citizens must know the enemy and know who we are as Americans.  Know our founding principles and defend them.

The people of Boston have historically been strong and closely knitted together, especially in times of trouble.  Now they must come together to identify and crush the enemy in their midst.

Citizens in many towns around the nation need to do the same.  Yet, sadly, we are losing this war that most Americans do not even know we are fighting.

Canadian Jihadi Created ‘Martyrdom Video,’ Pledged Allegiance to Islamic State

Breitbart, by John Hayward, Aug. 122, 2016:

At a news conference on Friday, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) said that Canadian jihadi Aaron Driver, shot by the police after detonating a bomb in a taxicab, filmed a “martyrdom video,” pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, and was planning a “dreadful” attack.

In the martyrdom video, Driver dresses in a black balaclava, like the garb favored by ISIS militants, “cites a phrase from the Koran, refers to crimes against Muslims and pledges an imminent attack on a Canadian city,” as Reuters describes it.

“Oh Canada, you received many warnings, you were told many times what would become of those who fight against the Islamic State,” begins the aspiring jihadi, who went by the name “Harun Abdulrahman” on social media.

The National Post provided an edited copy of the video, plus a full transcript of Driver’s tirade, which ends with the formal vow of allegiance to ISIS “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi that the Islamic State demands from “lone wolf” recruits:

Oh Canada, you received many warnings. You were told many times what will become of those who fight against the Islamic State. You watched as your allies in Europe and America had their bullets and bombs returned back to them. You saw bodies of the filthy French laying in their own streets.

You saw explosions in Paris and Brussels, similar to the explosions they were dropping on citizens of the Islamic State. You saw brave men and women respond to the call of jihad. You saw that each member of the coalition of crusaders was being punished for their aggression against the Muslims. Then, perhaps, you found yourself safe from retaliation because you ran away from the battlefield. No, no by Allah you still have much to pay for.

You still have a heavy debt which has to be paid. You still have Muslim blood on your hands, and for this we are thirsty for your blood. There’s a fire burning in the chest of every Muslim, and this fire can be cooled only by the spilling of your blood. Your war on Islam is not the kind of crime we allow ourselves to dismiss, to forgive or to forget, insha’Allah.

You will pay for everything you ever brought against us. Whether you drop a bomb or fire a single bullet, we will hold you accountable for this, insha’Allah. Whether you spend millions in the war against Islam or you spend a single cent, we will hold you accountable, insha’Allah.

When you creep an inch towards the lands of Islam or you set foot over its boundaries, we will hold you accountable, insha’Allah.

You call yourselves peacekeepers on this Earth, but (Allah) has already warned us against you. You’re nothing but mischief-makers, and all you do is spread oppression and corruption. So today is the day you experience what it’s like to be targeted for your belief, insha’Allah.

I give my pledge of allegiance to (ISIL leader) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi … who’s called for jihad in the lands of crusaders, and I respond to this call.

Inshallah means “as Allah wills.” Driver’s taunt that Canadians could not find safety by “running away from the battlefield” refers to new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s pledge to withdraw Canadian forces from combat missions against the Islamic State.

According to Reuters, the martyrdom video was the crucial “actionable threat intelligence” provided by the American FBI to Canadian authorities. The video also reportedly helped the RCMP identify Driver and locate his residence. The police confronted him as he was attempting to use a taxicab to leave the home, and shot him after he detonated an explosive device, causing minor injuries to the cab driver.

“It was a race against time,” said RCMP Deputy Commissioner Mike Cabana. He said Driver was planning a “significantly more dreadful” attack if he had not been stopped in time.

The UK Guardian quotes Cabana addressing the issue of Driver being a known terrorist threat, who was theoretically under police supervision at the time he came dangerously close to pulling off a mass-casualty attack:

“Mr Driver was one individual among others that had potentially criminal intentions. And our ability to monitor people 24 hours a day and 7 days a week simply does not exist, we can’t do that. When individuals have intentions, such as Mr Driver had, there are no conditions that can be put in place that will prevent them from taking action.”

Newsweek reports that the ISIS news agency, Amaq, has described Driver as a “soldier of the Islamic State,” conceding that he made a mistake by “releasing his video… before carrying out the attack.”

What Happens When a Muslim Dies?

UTT, by John Guandolo, Feb. 9, 2016:

Why are so many Muslims motivated to fight and die as martyrs/shaheeds in Islam?

According to Islamic doctrine, when a Muslim dies for any reason – car crash, heart attack, old age – his body is washed, shrouded, prayed over, and buried in accordance with Sharia (Islamic Law).  Specific details of how the body is washed, who is to wash, specific prayers to be prayed, and how the grave is dug is all a part of the Sharia covering this topic.

Once the deceased is placed in the grave, his soul separates from the body and lingers above it.  Here is a description from What Islam is All About, the most popular text used in Islamic junior high schools in America:

“When you die, your soul is taken from your body by the Angel of Death.  If you were a good person, it is gently drawn out from  your flesh.  If you were bad, however, then your soul is ripped violently from it….

“If you were a believer in Allah, and followed the teachings of your Prophet…your environment will then be softly lighted.  Your resting place in the spiritual dimension will be made roomy and comfortable and you will sleep and dream gently until the Day of Judgment.

“But if you were a bad person, who didn’t believe in Allah, or a hypocrite, then the angels will become horrifying to you.  They will strike you and cause your soul’s resting place to squeeze in upon you until you feel suffocated.  Then you will be tormented and in agony until the Day of Judgment.”

But how does a Muslim know whether he followed the teachings of Islam or not throughout his life? Islam teaches that every Muslim has two beings called “Jinns” which record all of their good and bad deeds throughout life.  If the bad deeds outweigh the good deeds, he goes to hell on the Day of Judgment.  If the good deeds outweigh the bad deeds, he goes to paradise.  But there is no way to know until the Day of Judgment where he is going.

There is only one exception.

The martyr or shaheed – the one who dies in battle in Allah’s cause (Jihad) – immediately goes to the highest level of paradise the moment his first drop of blood hits the ground, and he receives the promise of sensual pleasures.  The shaheed avoids all punishments of the grave and is sure of his reward in paradise. The shaheed does not feel the pain of death.

Jihad (6)

“It is unlawful to wash the body of a martyr or perform funeral prayer over him. A martyr means someone who died in battle with non-Muslims.  It is recommended that war gear be removed from the body, and it is best to bury the martyr in the rest of his bloodstained clothes since it is the effect of worship.” [Um dat al Salik, 14th Century Islamic Sacred Law, certified by Al Azhar as authoritative Sunni Islamic Law]

To die as a shaheed against non-Muslims is the highest form of worship in Islam.

The Koran promises shaheeds go to the highest level of paradise above all other Muslims:

“Not equal are those believers who sit at home and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of Allah with their goods and their persons.  Allah hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit at home. Unto all in Faith Hath Allah promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward.” [Koran 4:95]

“Those who leave their homes in the cause of Allah (jihad) and are then slain or die, on them will Allah bestow verily a goodly Provision; truly Allah is he who bestows the best Provision.” [Koran 22:58]

This is why in Islamic schools across the world, and in America, 7th graders are taught:  “If anyone dies in a Jihad they automatically will go to Paradise.  A Shaheed, or Martyr, is described this way by Allah, ‘Don’t think that those who were killed in Allah’s Cause are dead.  No, they are alive, finding their bounty in the presence of their Lord.’ (Koran 3:169)” [What Islam is All About, pg 164]

In Islam “The Cause of Allah” is Jihad.

It is clear to all Muslims, which is why it is taught to Muslim children in mosques and Islamic schools across America, that to die fighting non-Muslims is the highest form of worship in Islam and the only way to guarantee paradise when a Muslim dies.

Jamal Badawi: Enduring Link to ISNA’s Radical Past

IPT News: 

For an organization that has tried to distance itself from its Muslim Brotherhood roots, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) continues to rely on a Muslim Brotherhood official as a key speaker at many of its events.

Jamal Badawi is scheduled to speak during three sessions at ISNA’s East Regional Conference in Tampa this weekend. Among them, “Understanding Shari’ah: Sacred Principles in Striving for the Human Development.”

Badawi, a member at large on ISNA’s governing board, is deeply rooted in the Muslim Brotherhood’s North American infrastructure, records show. He is listed on the first page of a 1992 telephone directory of Brotherhood members. He also was founding member of the Muslim American Society (MAS), identified as the Brotherhood’s U.S. arm in a 2004 Chicago Tribune story.

“Everyone knows that MAS is the Muslim Brotherhood,” Abdurrahman Alamoudi testified in a Virginia courtroom last month. Alamoudi, once the nation’s most influential Muslim political figure, acknowledges his own Brotherhood involvement.

Brotherhood members also created ISNA in 1981 as an outgrowth of the Muslim Students’ Association.

The Brotherhood, founded in Egypt in 1928, has surged to power in recent Egyptian elections and has a global Islamic state, or Caliphate, as its ultimate goal. Its American arm cited an educational program Badawi ran in 1991 as a foundation for “dawa,” or proselytizing, in America. That same document described the Brotherhood’s work in America as “a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

Badawi’s comments over the years show he views Islam as superior to democracy and that he defends violent jihad, including suicide bombings, as a form of martyrdom. Such statements, in addition to his Brotherhood connections, make it difficult for ISNA to claim that it has shed its radical past and MB ties.

During a February 2009 speech on “Understanding Jihad and Martyrdom,” at the Chebucto Mosque in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Badawi explained that Gaza-based terrorists were fighting a jihad and that those who were killed were martyrs. He railed against those who criticized the terrorists or cooperated with the Israelis, saying that it was an ‘excess’ by more moderate Muslims to come out against their brothers fighting the Jewish state.

“One of those form of excesses is that noble mujahideen, those who strive in the path of Allah, who are really worthy of the term Shuhadaa – martyrs – have been attacked or accused [of being terrorists], not only by their enemies, but by those who are amongst the people who are included in the broader description of the Ummah,” he said.

“They [moderate Muslims] made this accusation, but they did not even stop at accusations, they did cooperate with the enemies of humanity, to kill their own brothers and sisters,” he added, stating that those that fought against Muslims were “sub-contracting, on behalf of the usurpers of Muslims’ land, right, and heritage.”

Badawi also explained that the Western media was guilty of hypocrisy when it referred to Gaza “martyrs” fighting the Israelis, as terrorists.

“In the Western world, however, we find that the media, which is both misled and misleading, and those who are behind that media, they continued also to falsify and distort this noble concept of martyrdom, equating it with what they call terrorism, fanaticism, violence, and so on,” he said.

The Western media readily agrees that someone who “or prefers death in defense of some value, of some cause,” that is a good thing. However, “when that choice is that of a Muslim, and he chooses death rather than weakness, rather than accepting aggression and selling their rights, no, no, no, that doesn’t apply here,” he said.

Badawi spoke again in support of Palestinian terror a year later.

“But there is one form of combative jihad that is permissible only for self-defense against unprovoked aggression or to resist severe oppression, such as people being driven from their homes like the Palestinians and dispossessed,” he said in a March 2010 speech posted to the Islamonline.net website.

In June 2006, he led an Islamonline.net dialogue session called “Martyrdom in Islam: Let’s Discuss it.” In it, he compared suicide bombers fighting oppression to “freedom fighters” fighting the Nazis or the Japanese kamikazes fighting the Americans. At a 1999 Muslim student conference held at the University of Maryland, Badawi said that “resistance” was really an act of heroism. “So when an act of heroism like that is required to save others it is self-sacrifice you cannot really call it suicide. What Islam condemns is suicide in the negative sense. That’s my understanding.”

He likened Palestinian attacks on Israeli soldiers to the French resistance against the Nazis and urged people not to wilt in the face of criticism of such violence.

“But what makes me really surprised is the intimidation in the media and by politicians that you people, not Arabs, not Muslims even, who know of this hypocrisy are not speaking up for fear of being branded as oh supporters of terrorism,” he said at the University of Maryland conference. This is childish. This is childish. This we should not support terrorism by victimizing the innocent people but we should support freedom fighters anywhere who have been wronged.”

Palestinian kids are “fertilizer,” created to saturate the land with blood

PMW:

Palestinian kids created as “fertilizer,”
to saturate the land with blood

Fatah: “Our children… were created to be fertilizer
for the land of Palestine, and for our pure land
to be saturated with their blood”
PA children sing: “My pure land, I shall saturate you
with my blood… redeem you with my life”

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

 
Dying for the sake of “Palestine” as an ideal, even for Palestinian children and youth, remains part of Palestinian discourse.This week, official Palestinian Authority TV reported from a Fatah celebration in a refugee camp in Lebanon and chose to focus on the following slide shown at the celebration. Fatah’s message was that children are created so that their blood will be “fertilizer” to saturate the land:

 
“Our children are our glory and honor,
they were created to be fertilizer for the land of Palestine,
and for our pure land to be saturated with their blood.”
 
Earlier this month, a PA-Fatah celebration in Ramallah featured a performance with the same message. In front of senior PA leaders, including Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, young children and youth performed a song that included the following words:
 
“My pure land, I shall saturate you with my blood…
redeem you with my life.”
 
Palestinian Media Watch has reported extensively on the PA’s teaching of children to die as Martyrs for “Palestine.” During the PA’s terror campaign (the “Intifada,” 2000-2005), the PA encouraged children to aspire for Martyrdom death as a central part of its message to children. Today, the message that children should die for “Palestine” is less prominent, but still found in PA schoolbooks and is expressed in cultural settings through song and dance.
During the terror campaign, PA TV videos presented martyrdom death for children as “sweet.” One PA TV music video broadcast hundreds of times from 2001 to 2004, showed a young boy falling dead on the ground to the words: “How sweet is Shahada (Martyrdom), when I am embraced by you, my land!”
 
As a result, children presented death for kids as “sweet” in TV interviews. In 2002, at the height of the terror campaign, an 11-year-old Palestinian girl said on PA TV: “Of course Shahada is sweet. We don’t want this world, we want the Afterlife.”
 
As a result of the many years of PA urging children to become Martyrs, Palestinian adults and children still see Martyrdom death as an ideal. Parents speak with honor of their “heroic” children who fell as Martyrs, and children talk of becoming Martyrs.
