Islamic State Targets San Francisco and Las Vegas in New Video

Breitbart, by Adelle Nazarian, June 27, 2016:

The Islamic State in Mosul released a video on Sunday, coinciding with the San Francisco Gay Pride Parade, foreshadowing what appears to be a plan to attack the city, as well as Las Vegas or “Sin City.”

The video shows footage of the Golden Gate Bridge and the 555 California Street tower in the financial district, which is the second-tallest building in the city, among other landmarks. It also shows the Las Vegas Strip at night, according to PJ Media and theInquisitor.

The scene is believed to have been shot from the pedestrian bridge at Caesar’s Palace and is of a similar bridge connected to the Bellagio hotel and Casino.

The Inquisitor writes that the video “is accompanied by an English voiceover encouraging more attacks in San Francisco in the same vein as the Pulse incident in Orlando and Arab subtitles are superimposed on the footage being shown.”

A voiceover by n member of the radical Islamic militant group, who introduces himself as Abu Ismail al-Amriki (or “The American”), plays in the background.

The footage also displays links of press conferences following the aftermath of the gay nightclub shooting, including one from the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) — which has been declared a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates and was named by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding operation.

CAIR leapt to assist the families of San Bernardino terrorists Syed Rizwan Farook and his accomplice wife Tashfeen Malik, including helping them receive traditional Islamic burials.

In the video, however, the Islamic State appears to group CAIR in with American Muslim leaders, accusing them of cooperating with disbelievers, PJ Media notes.

Despite reports in the media suggesting that Mateen was gay, FBI officials have found no evidence that he ever actually used apps used to meet other gay men, contrary to early reporting.

Similarly, the Islamic State appears to be speculative about Mateen’s sexuality. Sunday’s video is reportedly the third the group has released taking ownership for the Orlando attacks and encouraging others to follow Mateen’s example.

The Islamic State video also shows footage of President Barack Obama speaking in the Oval Office and the White House briefing room, with his image surrounded by blood splattered across the screen around him.

In January of last year, ISIS had threatened to behead Obama and make America a Muslim province.

Where’s outrage against this type of gay oppression?

download (46)WND, By Pamela Geller:

All this ballyhoo and hullabaloo about the “Duck Commander” and his biblical reference – why?

The blowback and national firestorm raging in the wake of the remarks by the patriarch of “Duck Dynasty” is a stunning indictment of left-wing hypocrisy. The visceral response and resultant leftist temper tantrum gives us a revealing look behind the left’s mask of intolerant tolerance and the true objective of its “pro-gay” agenda.

People are free to think what they want. It’s when you torture, beat, hang or burn gay people alive – that’s the line in the sand, that’s real “homophobia.” Where’s the A&E special on the Muslim oppression of gays under the Shariah? Where is the outrage about that oppression from CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, etc.? Where is the worldwide outrage of the vicious anti-gay Shariah?

Tell A&E to apologize to Duck Commander. Sign the petition here and WND will deliver it to A&E!

Just as the Matthew Shepard case had nothing to do with homophobia, the controversy over plucky duck patriarch Phil Robertson has nothing to do with gay rights. Had a left-wing comic or actor made such remarks (and they have), it would have been water off a duck’s back. But the ducky patriarch cited the Bible, and that thar’s fighting words.

These vicious attacks using false narratives are very effective. Matthew Shepard was brutally murdered in Wyoming. His killing became the icon of gay hate and the impetus behind the anti-constitutional “hate-crime” legislation. The fallacious tale of Mathew Shepard resulted in the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr., Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009, which, according to the Justice Department, “provides funding and technical assistance to state, local, and tribal jurisdictions to help them to more effectively investigate and prosecute hate crimes.”

Pamela Geller’s commitment to freedom from jihad and Shariah shines forth in her books — featured at the WND Superstore

All crime is hate – criminalizing the thought behind it was a fatal line to cross. Hate-speech laws would inevitably follow hate-crime legislation. The fact is, Matthew Shepard was murdered by his gay lover in a meth deal gone bad. Shepard’s sexual preference “certainly wasn’t the motive in the homicide,” investigative journalist Stephen Jimenez quotes police investigator Ben Fritzen in his blockbuster book, “The Book of Matt.” “What it came down to really is drugs and money,” said Jimenez, who is also gay.

Passing thought crime laws based on a lie is instrumental to the left’s totalitarian war on freedom of conscience and freedom of speech, and consistent with the laws of the Shariah.

The feathers were flying in the wake of the “Duck Dynasty” patriarch’s obvious embrace of Christianity and the show’s popularity. “Duck Dynasty” is the highest rated show on cable. This flew in the face of the left’s successful war on Christianity. They see this as an all-out assault – hence the vicious blowback against Phil Robertson after his remarks.

This is an attack on Christianity, not on “homophobia.”

If the left really cared about “homophobia,” there would be leftist marches in the streets against the brutal oppression of gays under the Shariah. There would be outcries and condemnation of the torture, hanging and murder of gays in Muslim societies. Muslim anti-gay crime would be vigorously prosecuted in the United States, but that is hardly the case. Just the opposite, in fact. In 2010, Muslim gangs were targeting gays in San Francisco and shooting them in the face with BB guns, while filming the attacks. The response from law enforcement in the gay mecca of America was to cover it up.

Where was the pushback? Where was the outcry from the LGBT community about the Shariah mobs and the subsequent cover-up by the media and law enforcement? What if a non-Muslim had shot a Muslim in the face with a BB gun just because he was Muslim? Do you think that the story would have sunk as quickly as this Muslim targeting of gays in San Francisco did? We would still be hearing about it from Eric Holder and Obama more than three years later.

Just last week, a Muslim cleric in India issued a fatwa against gays, saying that “a person may be burnt alive, pushed from a high wall or be beaten publicly with stones if he indulges” in homosexual activity.

Also last week, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) was named to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Yet Yusuf Islam has said that material that’s favorable to homosexuality in school curricula is designed by people who want to “feast off the innocence of our children for their own abominable sexual appetites.” That’s far stronger than what Phil Robertson said – yet A&E drops him from the show while Yusuf goes into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Gay organizations in America have said nothing about Yusuf Islam, but they loudly condemned my ad campaign highlighting Muslim oppression of gays under the Shariah. The visceral response of the San Francisco City Council, the Human Rights CommissionSFHRC head Theresa Sparks and the enemedia to our “Gays under the Shariah” ad campaign was obscene proof of leftist hypocrisy. They called my ads hate when I merely quoted Muslim political leaders, spiritual leaders and cultural voices in the Muslim community who incited hatred and violence in their vicious anti-gay diatribes, and called for their torture and their execution.

That’s hypocrisy – as is their persecution of Phil Robertson.

San Francisco leaders condemn AFDI jihad truth ads, refuse to condemn words of jihadists themselves

Geller-Ads-620x365-thumb-500x294-2083March 11, 2013 Robert Spencer:

San Francisco officials held a press conference today to condemn our jihad truth ads as “Islamophobic” and “racist” — what race is jihad terror again? I keep forgetting. And why is it “Islamophobic” to report on what Islamic jihadists and supremacists have actually said about jihad, so as to alert Americans to the nature of the jihad threat? Unexplained, unexamined. The San Francisco officials and the mainstream media are not engaging in any real analysis, but just in propagandistic sloganeering and grandstanding, the end result of which is to deny and minimize the reality of the jihad threat.

Do you think that conclusion is overstated? Consider this: Pete DaTech guy contacted Stephanie Ong Stillman, the Director of Communications the Office of District Attorney George Gascón, and asked her if San Francisco officials planned to condemn the ads alone, or also the jihadis’ statements on the ads. It would have been easy to throw in a line about deploring the “twisted version of Islam” enunciated by the jihadis depicted in the ads, but no such luck: Stephanie Ong Stillmen repeatedly told Pete that they were only condemning the ads, not the jihadis. Read all about it here, and Pamela Geller has more here.

Politely and courteously register your indignation at the hypocrisy and moral myopia of San Francisco officials:

AFDI denounces San Francisco leaders’ condemnation of jihad truth ads Yahoo News, March 11:

NEW YORK, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A prominent national human rights organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), has denounced San Francisco city leaders’ condemnation of their ads telling the truth about the jihad threat that Americans face.

The AFDI ads feature actual quotes from Osama bin Laden, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a witness to the jihad of Fort Hood mass murderer Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, Hamas TV and Times Square jihad car bomber Faisal Shahzad. They depict Osama bin Laden’s actual explanation of why he took down the Twin Towers: “The first thing we are calling you to is Islam.” They note that Hasan was shouting “Allahu akbar” as he murdered 13 Americans at Fort Hood. They recount a Hamas TV music video that included the lyric, “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah,” and report Shahzad’s words on how jihad involving “weaponry” is “an obligation and duty in Islam on every Muslim.”

“Americans need to understand the threat they’re facing,” said AFDI Executive Director Pamela Geller. “That is the point of our ads. The slaughter of Christians in Nigeria, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Malaysia, Algeria et al — that doesn’t warrant a statement, let alone a press conference from San Francisco authorities, but my ads do. Think about that. Hundreds of thousands dead, but it would be blasphemy to talk about. The slaughter in the cause of jihad is OK, but my talking about it is the problem.”

Geller continued: “It is significant that they did not condemn the cynical and deceptive Hamas-linked CAIR ads that ran on buses earlier, and to which my ads are replying. Their inconsistency and politically motivated selective outrage are manifest.”

“Hamas-CAIR,” she said, “an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest Hamas funding trial in our nation’s history, has created out of whole cloth a propaganda campaign that dissembles, deceives, and deliberately lies about the definition of jihad. Our ads reply to that campaign with the truth about the jihad threat in the words of the jihadis themselves.”

Video: Spencer and Geller tell it like it is at Breitbart “The Uninvited” CPAC Panel

breitbart_is_here_formattedShoebat Foundation:

The bad news is that Pamela Geller was not invited to speak at CPAC this year; ditto Robert Spencer. The good news is that Breitbart put on an event at CPAC billed as ‘The Uninvited Panel’. The even better news is that it was a packed house.

A big reason for CPAC’s attempt to censor Spencer and Geller is the strong influence of both Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan; the latter is the son of an ISNA / MSA founder, Mahboob Kahn. Suhail’s mother used to sit on the board of the San Francisco chapter of CAIR but Suhail asked her to step down when his connections to Muslim Brotherhood groups began to get exposed.

Watch these clips of Spencer and Geller respectively, talk about Norquist and Khan at the Uninvited panel.

Iranians prepare terror campaign inside U.S.

RevGuards-340x168by Michael Carl

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is alive and well in the U.S. and the country’s law enforcement officials ignore them at their peril, according to former U. S. Air Force officer Steven O’Hern.

O’Hern says that the Revolutionary Guard, long an influential factor in the radical Islamic regime in Iran, does most of its surveillance and intelligence gathering through its proxy force, Hezbollah, considered by many to be a terror group.

“In the United States, the Revolutionary Guard uses more than one approach. Hezbollah operatives and sympathizers are present in large numbers in many parts of the United States and actively conduct reconnaissance missions that develop information, photographs, and diagrams of federal buildings, and infrastructure targets,” O’Hern said.

“Those targets include such things as water utilities or electrical substations, and other potential targets to give the Guard the ability to quickly order a terrorist strike in our homeland,” O’Hern said.

He explains that the Revolutionary Guard is working through Shi’a mosques around the United States as well as the nation’s Lebanese immigrant communities.

WND previously reported that a former Iranian official who has knowledge of Iran’s terror network estimated there are more than 40,000 of the regime’s security, intelligence and propaganda forces in the West, largely in friendly South American nations.

And WND has reported that Muslims are using mosques, including some in the United States, as terror command centers.

It is the Guards’ intelligence office that runs financing, recruiting and other strategies through Islamic centers and mosques, including some in New York and Ohio.

And as early as several months ago, the Guard threatened to bring its war to the shores of the United States.

O’Hern, who has written “Iran’s Revolutionary Guard,” about the issue, said the primary mission of the Iran Revolutionary Guard and its Hezbollah proxy is to weaken the U. S. national security.

“In the United States, the Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah have a long-term mission of gathering intelligence on homeland targets and maintaining the capability to deliver multiple terrorist attacks if the IRGC chooses to do so,” O’Hern said. “I say ‘maintain’ because the Guard has already developed it.”

He said attacks could be ordered in retaliation if Iran’s nuclear program is hit, or, “Sleeper cells could even be ordered into action if economic sanctions were so successful that the regime was in danger.”

“Attacks against the U.S. homeland are only one place where the IRGC can strike – it also can attack U.S. troops and facilities in Afghanistan, Africa, Europe, all of which are closer,” O’Hern said.

O’Hern’s findings are affirmed by the analysis of a former Defense Department analyst who has asked not to be named for security reasons. The analyst points to the major Arab-American communities in the major cities, especially in Dearborn, Mich., and the San Francisco Bay area.

“It is my sense that IRGC will rely more on Hezbollah in the U.S. than having their own operatives here. The reason for that is Hezbollah presence is primarily through the concentration of the Arab-American communities, mainly Lebanese, throughout the U.S., such as in Michigan and elsewhere,” the source said.

Former FBI counterterrorism officer and Islam analyst John Guandolo agrees that the Revolutionary Guard has a presence in the United States, and it operates through the major Shi’a communities.

“This is the Iranian government’s military activity in the U.S,” he said.

Guandolo, who established  Guandolo and Associates in 2012, says that when it comes to working to undermine non-Muslim countries, Shi’a and Sunni Muslims work together.

“We do know the Sunni and Shi’a groups that are hostile to the United States are working together. In Lebanon, Iraq, and other places we see Hezbollah, by Iran, and Hamas with al-Qaida, working together on the ground,” Guandolo said.

“In the United States, the largest Muslim Brotherhood organization, the Islamic Society of North America, put forth the ISNA Code of Honor which says Sunni Muslims will not challenge other Muslims, the Shi’a, on their Takfiri, their legitimacy,” Guandolo said.

“All Muslims are focused on a similar goal. In other words, the Muslim world is working towards one goal right now and they have written agreements and are working on the ground around the world together,” Guandolo said, “So, yes, Hamas, CAIR works with Hezbollah, which is basically the IRGC.”

The former Defense Department analyst says the Revolutionary Guard operates the same way worldwide.

“That is similar in Africa and Latin America. Like Iran, Hezbollah is mainly Shi’a, although it will have some Sunnis and even some Christian Lebanese who are sympathetic here,” the former Defense Department analyst said.

“There is a major Hezbollah contingent, for example, in Canada. It would be much easier for Iran to work through them and the extensive Lebanese communities throughout the U.S. than to seek to establish a major independent presence,” the Defense Department analyst said.

Still, he said, it’s possible that the IRGC itself may have operational units working in the United States.

“However, I don’t doubt that IRGC may have some operatives here acting as liaison with the Hezbollah elements here. In Lebanon, the IRGC presence is more open with representatives working out of the Iranian embassy in Beirut,” the Defense Department analyst said.

CAIR Rep Applauds Shunning Law Enforcement

IPT News:

New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa held his first meeting Wednesday with a new committee aimed at improving relations between law enforcement and Muslims.

It took place over the objection of some Muslim activists who wanted a boycott of the meeting because of Chiesa’s previous finding that public surveillance of New Jersey Muslims by the New York Police Department did not violate state law. That surveillance has ended, Chiesa said in the meeting.

Aref Assaf

In an op-ed piece published Tuesday, Arab American Forum President Aref Assaf cast any Muslim who attended as a sell-out. “Our dignity and our rights are too precious for a passing photo-op,” he wrote.

In addition to Chiesa’s finding – which came in response to a request from Muslim activists – Assaf objected to the meeting because the 10 Muslim representatives primarily come from mosque leadership and not from Islamist political groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

“While honored and respected in their own mosques, and we of course do not doubts (sic) their intentions,” Assaf wrote, “these people were not presented to the Muslim community with their credentials and none appear to be of legal or academic backgrounds.”

Zahra Billoo

This drew praise from 3,000 miles away, as CAIR-San Francisco Executive Director Zahra Billoo posted a comment on Twitter feed directing people to Assaf’s column. “Great Piece About Who Gets to Decide Who Represents the Community in Engagement with Law Enforcement,” she wrote.

While CAIR claims to be a friend to law enforcement, the Investigative Project on Terrorism has repeatedly demonstrated the group’s hostility and the paranoid message it conveys to Muslims. That includes a new profile of Billoo, showing her reflexive criticism of terror-related arrests by the FBI and her open advocacy of extreme positions.

Given that, her enthusiastic support for Assaf’s stance makes sense. Assaf wants veto power over the people a state official chooses to engage. And he argues Muslims should shun Chiesa until he agrees with them.

“Unless the AG is about to change his opinion [on the NYPD surveillance], I fail to see a tangible value in talking. ‘Our’ representatives fundamentally disagree with the AG’s view. Or don’t they?”
